MONROE, La. (AP) — Growing up in the piney backwoods of northern Louisiana, where yards were dotted with crosses and the occasional Confederate flag, Jacob Brown was raised on hunting, fishing and dreams of becoming a state trooper. But within weeks of arriving at the Louisiana State Police training academy in Baton Rouge, instructors pegged Brown as trouble. One wrote that he was an arrogant, chronic rule breaker with “toxic” character traits that should disqualify him from ever joining the sta

As little as 15 minutes a day of brisk walking could help many women who struggle with postpartum depression, a study from a Canadian university says, though some severe cases may still require traditional medical care.

Justin Trudeau says he aims to lead the Liberals the next time Canadians head to the polls, as he undertook a major cabinet overhaul aimed at quickly delivering on his top priorities during his third term as prime minister. He defended Harjit Sajjan even as he shuffled him to international development and selected former procurement minister Anita Anand to lead the fight against military sexual misconduct as defence minister.
As any student of government will tell you, there are traditional levers of power in Ottawa: Finance, Foreign Affairs and Defence. They constitute the power to spend and make economic policy, the power to manage the country's image abroad and the power to defend ourselves in a time of crisis. Those levers are now — for the first time in Canada — collectively in the hands of women: Chrystia Freeland at Finance; Mélanie Joly at Global Affairs; and Anita Anand at the Department of National Defence.
