ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Against the backdrop of the troop withdrawal from Afghanistan, the top U.S. military officer is meeting in Greece with NATO counterparts this weekend, hoping to forge more basing, intelligence sharing and other agreements to prevent terrorist groups from regrouping and threatening America and the region. Army Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said the meeting of NATO defense chiefs will focus in part on the way ahead now that all alliance troops have
MOSCOW (Reuters) -Jailed Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny's allies accused YouTube and Telegram of censorship on Saturday after the video platform and messaging app restricted access to their anti-government voting recommendations for Russia's parliamentary election. Navalny's allies already accused Alphabet's Google and Apple of buckling under Kremlin pressure on Friday after the companies removed an app from their stores that the activists had hoped to use against the ruling party at the election.
The message was simple: Water unites us all. Late Friday afternoon, more than a dozen attendees of a Teedon Pit protest gathered at 40 Darby Road near Waverley with signs and flags. The crowd was a mix of protesters, supporters, politicians and handlers. Opposition to Teedon Pit arose from the potential that site operations could damage the valuable clean water of the Alliston Aquifer Complex which runs beneath the property, as well as throughout many of Tiny Township’s wells and water systems.
The mother of four-year-old Serenity says her relationship with her child welfare caseworker was strained from their first meeting. Serenity died in September 2014 after sustaining a head injury at the home of her great aunt and uncle in the central Alberta community of Maskwacis, south of Edmonton. The mother, who can't be identified because of a court-ordered publication ban in place to protect her children's identities, took the stand Friday to give evidence about her involvement with the chi

Saint John-Rothesay has historically been a riding to watch in New Brunswick, having both the highest poverty rates and the largest industrial businesses and carbon gas emitters. Two-term Liberal MP Wayne Long is fighting to keep his seat, as former Saint John Mayor Mel Norton is trying to turn the riding Conservative. Ann McAllister with the Green Party, Don Paulin with the NDP and Nicholas Pereira with the People's Party of Canada are also all vying for that seat in Ottawa. With the election d
Here’s a collection curated by The Associated Press’ entertainment journalists of what’s arriving on TV, streaming services and music platforms this week. MOVIES — The best way to remember Norm Macdonald, who died last week at age 61, is probably to surf YouTube for late-night and “Saturday Night Live” clips,sift through Twitter for anecdotes and read some of themany finetributes written about the comedian. But while movies were a smaller part of Macdonald's output, his plainspoken, deadpan come
Divers in the Philippines pulled plastic bags, drinks bottles and fishing nets from a coral reef on Saturday, joining an annual cleanup that aims to highlight the impact of garbage on the world's oceans. About a dozen divers cleared rubbish from the reef and nearby beaches as they marked World Cleanup Day in Batangas province, a popular spot for snorkelling and diving south of the capital, Manila. "For every fishing line or net that you remove, you could actually prevent a turtle from dying or getting caught in it or eating a plastic bag," organiser Carmela Sevilla told Reuters, holding up a mesh bag full of garbage.
MELBOURNE/PARIS (Reuters) -Australia has made a "huge" diplomatic error by ditching a multi-billion-dollar order for French submarines in favour of an alternative deal with the United States and Britain, France's envoy to Canberra said on Saturday. Canberra announced on Thursday it would scrap its 2016 deal with France's Naval Group to build a fleet of conventional submarines and instead build at least eight nuclear-powered ones with U.S. and British technology after striking a trilateral security partnership nL1N2QH2X7. The move caused fury in France, a NATO ally of the United States and Britain, prompting it to recall its ambassadors to Washington and Canberra, and also riled China, the major rising power in the Indo-Pacific region.

Sonya Pritchard, chief administrative officer for the County of Dufferin, said the Nov. 1 date will give people the full six weeks needed to become fu
U.S. envoy John Kerry’s diplomatic quest to stave off the worst scenarios of global warming is meeting resistance from China, the world's biggest climate polluter, which is adamant that the United States ease confrontation over other matters if it wants Beijing to speed up its climate efforts. Rights advocates and Republican lawmakers say they see signs, including softer language and talk of heated internal debate among Biden administration officials, that China’s pressure is leading the United
The Town of Shelburne is warning residents of an invasive plant found in the community which can cause severe burns. Wild parsnip is a member of the carrot/parsley family and with its tall, yellow bunches and resemblance to common non-toxic plants such as Golden Alexander, it can appear harmless. But it’s the plant’s nickname – poison parsnip – that truly heeds warning. While the roots of the plant are edible, when in contact with skin the sap can cause severe burns as well as rashes and blister
A Canadian-led team of scientists has concluded that tropical coral reefs that feed millions around the world have lost about half their ability to support human communities since 1950. "I don't think any of us expected the declines to be as big as we found," said Tyler Eddy of Memorial University, lead author of the paper published Friday in the journal One Earth. The paper is the first to tote up the cumulative effects of threats faced by tropical coral reefs from overfishing to pollution to c

MOSCOW (AP) — The head of Russia’s second-largest political party is alleging widespread violations in the election for a new national parliament, in which his party is widely expected to gain seats. Communist Party head Gennady Zyuganov said on Saturday — the second of three days of voting in the election — that police and the national elections commission must respond to reports of “a number of absolutely egregious facts” including ballot-stuffing in several regions. The Golos election-monitor
The Ontario government is warning people with expired driver’s licenses, license plate stickers, photo cards, and health cards to renew their documents, as they reinstate renewal requirements.

ALGIERS, Algeria (AP) — Algeria’s leader declared a three-day period of mourning starting Saturday for former President Abdelaziz Bouteflika, whose 20-year-long rule, riddled with corruption, ended in disgrace as he was pushed from power amid huge street protests when he decided to seek a new term. Bouteflika, who had been ailing since a stroke in 2013, died Friday at 84. His public appearances had been rare in the final years of his presidency, and he had not been seen since President Abdelmadj
