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
The riding of Moncton – Riverview – Dieppe encompasses one of Canada's fastest-growing regions and is one to watch as as voters head to the polls on Monday. Incumbent Ginette Petitpas Taylor won the seat as part of the Liberal Party's sweep of New Brunswick in 2015. She defeated Conservative incumbent Robert Goguen by a relatively large margin. Petitpas Taylor held the riding in 2019, even as the Liberals lost the ridings of Fredericton, Fundy Royal, New Brunswick Southwest and Tobique Mactaquac
The Town of Shelburne is in the process of developing a mandatory vaccination policy for all municipal staff members and elected officials, after a 6-1 majority vote from council. During Shelburne Town council’s meeting on Monday (Sept. 13), Deputy Mayor Steve Anderson brought forward a motion to have staff come back with a draft report on a vaccination policy by November that is in line with the County of Dufferin’s policy. “As leaders I think it’s important that we do just that. Demonstrate le
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
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.
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
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
TORONTO — Major League Soccer has fined Toronto FC defenders Kemar Lawrence and Chris Mavinga for their actions in TFC's 1-0 loss to Inter Miami on Tuesday. The MLS disciplinary committee found Lawrence guilty of failing to leave the field in a timely manner after being red-carded in the 37th minute. Mavinga was guilty of simulation/embellishment in the 48th minute. He went down clutching his face after Miami's Robbie Robinson raised his leg, trying to connect with a ball coming down. The leg di
In a quest to become zero waste, the Gabriola Island Recycling Organization has selected three design prototypes to help funnel waste fabrics into brand new items to sell. Michelle Kresnyak, general manager of the Gabriola Island Recycling Organization, says the organization receives over 45,000 kilograms of donated clothing every year. Half of that goes into their thrift store, but the other half would end up in a landfill. Kresnyak's organization applied for a grant to research ways to divert
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
Nova Scotia's premier has clear, harsh words for the small group of people who recently protested outside the province's top doctor's home: "grow up." On Friday evening, Premier Tim Houston released a video message about a small protest outside the Fall River home of Dr. Robert Strang, the province's chief medical officer of health, earlier that day. "There isn't language harsh enough to condemn these actions," Houston said in the video. "I would encourage you all to grow up and think of others.
LONDON, Ont. — Dareen Shilbayeh can't stop herself from looking over her shoulder while out in public. The London, Ont., resident who wears a hijab says she's been worried she'll be targeted because of her faith ever since a Muslim family was killed in the city this summer. "Every corner I take, even at the mall, when it's a public place, it's like, I have to be careful," said the 19-year-old who grew up in London and is a student at the city's Western University. It's a sentiment many Muslim Ca
Shannon Cutler has been living with a secret for most of her life, but that all changed recently when she posed for a fashion shoot without her wig on. "It was probably the best thing I ever did," said Cutler, who started losing her hair decades ago when she was just five-years-old. "I was emotional that day. In all honesty, there were some tears. But to see other women and to see the inspiration of these young girls that were also there were truly an inspiration to me and I thought, 'You know,

The Liberal Party said Toronto candidate Kevin Vuong is no longer running under the party banner and won't sit with the Liberal caucus if elected. Vuong, running in Spadina–Fort York, had been asked by the Liberals to "pause" his campaign after reports of a past sexual assault charge, which was dropped, surfaced in the media. The news of the dropped 2019 charge was first reported by the Toronto Star. At a campaign event Saturday, Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau said his party had taken immediate a

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.
