OTTAWA — Pierce Schoel thought he might be able to avoid a long wait at the passport office in Kitchener, Ont. by going in the middle of the day. He was surprised to discover line-ups out the door. The security guard told people they'd likely be waiting two, even three hours. But with a long-awaited trip to Mexico on the horizon -- his first overseas trip since the pandemic began -- he stuck it out. "I've been waiting to travel for quite a long time," Shoel said after applying for his passport F

MADRID (AP) — There is no sign that a volcanic eruption on the Spanish island of La Palma is coming to an end, four weeks after it began, officials said Sunday. The volcano on one of the Canary Islands off northwest Africa has so far destroyed more than 1,800 buildings, mostly homes, though prompt evacuations have helped avoid casualties on the island of some 85,000 people.

PORT-AU-PRINCE (Reuters) -A U.S. Christian aid organization on Sunday said a group of its missionaries had been kidnapped in Haiti, a further sign the Caribbean nation's gangs are growing increasingly brazen amid political and economic crises. The group was in Haiti to visit an orphanage when their bus was hijacked on Saturday outside the capital Port-au-Prince, according to accounts by other missionaries, amid a spike in kidnappings following the murder of President Jovenel Moise. Ohio-based Christian Aid Ministries said it had no information on who was behind the abduction nor where they took the group, which includes 16 Americans and one Canadian.
WATFORD, England (AP) — With a deft touch, a roll of the ball with his studs, a dummy and then a sublime finish into the bottom corner, Mohamed Salah produced another goal-of-the-season contender to headline Liverpool’s 5-0 win at Watford in the Premier League on Saturday. On a tough day for Claudio Ranieri in his first match as Watford manager, Salah delivered almost a replica of his stunning individual goal against Manchester City before the international break — and overshadowed a hat trick s
As New Brunswick grapples with lawsuit by First Nation communities, the province is now ordering thousands of employees not to use the words 'unceded' or 'unsurrendered', when making public acknowledgements to Indigenous lands.

The First Nations University of Canada (FNUniv) in Regina is approaching the research of medicinal plants in a unique way — by pairing students with elders and knowledge keepers who know these traditional plants intimately. The pandemic has had a major impact on universities, with many international students not having the ability to physically attend school in Canada. This can be especially difficult for international students in the sciences as laboratories are not always available to those at

The chill in the air has some residents in a southeast Edmonton neighbourhood looking ahead to their winter transit options — and they are concerned. Residents in The Hills at Charlesworth, a new community in the rapidly growing area of Ellerslie Road between 34th and 50th Streets, are asking the city to improve transit service to the neighbourhood. Currently, there is no transit stop there. Residents have to walk about two kilometres to the nearest stop on 50th Street. "When I came here a few m
