WEST COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Jill Biden on Sunday returned to the South Carolina Baptist church where she says she began to repair her relationship with God following her son's death from brain cancer six years ago. The first lady quietly flew to West Columbia for a surprise appearance at the 50th anniversary celebration for Pastor Charles B. Jackson Sr. of Brookland Baptist Church. But she ended up giving one of the most extensive explanations yet of how her faith wavered after Beau Biden's death
New Brunswick has had its share of boundary disputes over the years, almost going to war with the state of Maine in 1839 then squabbling with Quebec over Lake Temiscouata a few years later. But along the Missaguash River between Aulac, N.B., and Amherst, N.S., there's nary a whisper of contention over a five-hectare historical curiosity. No farmers fluster. No politicians bluster. No militias muster. The Missaguash is a narrow, murky channel regulated by dikes and aboiteaux that keep the Bay of

A Cape Breton artist has written and illustrated Canada's first Scottish Gaelic graphic novel. Ás a' Chamhanaich or Out of the Twilight is a collection of 12 short stories by Angus MacLeod, a Gaelic language and song teacher from Goose Cove, N.S. "To put it into a genre is really difficult because the stories are just whatever stories came to me," MacLeod said. "A lot of them have their roots in older Gaelic stories and creatures from Gaelic mythology." MacLeod said "there's a lot of fantasy in

Canada's speed skaters delivered powerful performances over five days of skating at the Olympic Oval in Calgary, setting the stage for a competitive season leading into the Olympics in February.

FREDERICTON — New Brunswick's six Wolastoqey chiefs are calling on the province's new commissioner on systemic racism to take a stand against the provincial government's ban on land acknowledgments. Last week the province ordered government employees to stop referring to unceded or unsurrendered lands when speaking at public meetings. Attorney General Hugh Flemming said the directive was in response to a lawsuit filed last year by the Wolastoqey communities claiming ownership of more than 60 per

WASHINGTON (AP) — Vice President Kamala Harris stood before the record-low water levels of Nevada’s Lake Mead on Monday and made the case for the Biden administration’s climate change agenda by warning that “this is where we’re headed.” “Look at where the water has receded over just the last 20 years,” she said, referring to the “bathtub ring” of minerals that marks where the reservoir's water line previously stood. “That space is larger than the height of the Statue of Liberty." The vice presid

OTTAWA — A senator resigned Monday from the upper chamber's biggest parliamentary group, before a hearing took place to consider kicking her out. Sen. Marilou McPhedran resigned from the Independent Senators’ Group (ISG) because she did not think she would receive a fair hearing. McPhedran says in a resignation letter to the ISG secretariat that the hearing “seems preordained in its negative outcome for me.” A hearing set up to consider expelling her was set up after she sent an email in Septemb
