The Sporting Lisbon captain scored two headers in almost identical circumstances and won a penalty for good measure, as he led his team to a 4-1 win against Besiktas in the Champions League on Tuesday.

"Should have the province moved a week, possibly 10 days earlier?" Moe said to host Leisha Grebinski on CBC's Saskatoon Morning. "You know, with the hindsight that we have now, I think we likely should have." It was a slight change in tone from Moe, who has steadfastly refused to apologize for the decisions made by the provincial go

"We may soon have a new defence in our arsenal with two new antiviral drugs that we have secured," health minister Sajid Javid said in a statement.
