JERUSALEM (AP) — Israel is pressing ahead with its aggressive campaign of offering coronavirus boosters to almost anyone over 12 and says its approach was further vindicated by a U.S. decision to give the shots to older patients or those at higher risk. Israeli officials credit the booster shot, which has already been delivered to about a third of the population, with helping suppress the country’s latest wave of COVID-19 infections. They say the differing approaches are based on the same realiz

Among the awards received Thursday by the urban music superstar were Hot Latin Song of the Year for “Dákiti” and album of the year for “YHLQMDLG.” “Thanks always to all the audience for all the support, for supporting the music we make, thanks to all those who worked on this anthem,” said Bad Bunny after receiving the Hot Latin Song award. “Th
WASHINGTON (AP) — The House passed legislation Friday that would guarantee a woman’s right to an abortion, an effort by Democrats to circumvent a new Texas law that has placed that access under threat. But the bill's 218-211 approval is mostly symbolic, as Republican opposition will doom it in the Senate. Still, Democrats say they are doing all they can to codify the Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade decision after the Supreme Court recently allowed the Texas law banning most abortions in the sta

As part of a TikTok challenge called "Devious Licks," students record themselves vandalizing and stealing items from school washrooms and post it online. "To be blunt, we are tired of repeatedly closing washrooms each and every day," the Calgary Board of Education (CBE) wrote in a statement to parents recently. "It costs us time and money, and inconve
OTTAWA — Canada's top doctor says safety data won't be the only factor public health officials and parents will have to consider when deciding whether or not to vaccinate young kids against COVID-19. There are no COVID-19 vaccines approved for use in children under 12 in Canada right now, but Pfizer announced earlier this week positive results in its trial for kids aged five and up. Dr. Teresa Tam says Health Canada will be looking at the data carefully to determine if the vaccine is safe for ch

COVID-19 vaccination has increased tension in communities across the country, and for some Manitoba parents divided over the issue, it's also led to legal bills. Earlier this week, a court case in Saskatchewan involving divorced parents who couldn't agree on the vaccine issue made national headlines, with the judge ultimately siding with the father, who wanted their 13-year-old daughter to get the shot. In a similar case in Quebec, a Superior Court judge ruled that a mother was allowed to have h
MONTREAL — Family members who lost loved ones at a Montreal long-term care home where 47 people died during the pandemic's first wave told a coroner's inquest Thursday that caring for society's most vulnerable should not be a for-profit exercise. Thursday was supposed to be the final day of hearings for private care home Résidence Herron, but coroner Géhane Kamel decided to hear more witnesses at the end of October because she said testimony had been contradictory and left her with too many unan
Canadians Michael Spavor and Michael Kovrig were free and bound for home late Friday after being imprisoned in China for nearly three years, while Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou was heading in the other direction, her own legal saga ending in a deal with the United States. The pair of flights made for a dramatic end to an international battle, both publicly and behind the scenes, that began nearly three years ago with the arrest of Meng at the Vancouver airport. Spavor and Kovrig, known around th
If Meng Wanzhou resolves the federal charges against her in the U.S. and returns to China, Lynette Ong, an associate professor of political science at the University of Toronto and the Munk School of Global Affairs, says she is 'cautiously optimistic' that will lead to Michael Spavor and Michael Kovrig being allowed to return to Canada from China.(Credit: CBC/Ben Nelms)
