When Kim Davis named her family's farm, she chose the name Ataraxy. It means "a state of serene calmness," and that is what the farm represents for her veteran husband, and now many others. Davis and her husband, Blair, started their farm in Lawrencetown, about 40 minutes east of Halifax, in 2013. It was originally a family venture to help treat Blair Davis's service-related PTSD, but the farm — and its therapy goats — have grown to mean much more. "This farm was started for me, but it's more th

VICTORIA — Some of the containers that caught fire on a cargo ship off Victoria contained hazardous materials, but air quality monitoring along the city's waterfront had found no negative results, the Canadian Coast Guard said Monday. A flyover of the MV Zim Kingston showed no visible flames, although a salvage master had indicated there were still pockets of fire and some containers had "internal fires," Paul Barrett, an official with the coast guard, told a media briefing.

U.S. President Joe Biden joined Southeast Asian leaders in rebuking Myanmar's junta on Tuesday, as a regional summit opened without a representative from the country following its top general's exclusion for ignoring peace proposals. The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) had said it would accept a non-political figure from Myanmar at the virtual meeting, but the junta rejected that, saying it would only agree to its leader or a minister attending. In an unprecedented snub to the leader of a member state, ASEAN had decided to sideline junta chief Min Aung Hlaing, who led a Feb. 1 coup that spiralled into violence and chaos, for his failure to cease hostilities, allow humanitarian access and start dialogue, as agreed with ASEAN.
The country is already suffering from poverty, drought, electricity blackouts, and a failing economic system. View on euronews

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
CHICAGO (AP) — A North Carolina man who moved to Chicago was one of the victims of John Wayne Gacy, who was convicted of killing 33 young men and boys in the 1970s, authorities said Monday.

Or in the celebrations as Liverpool defender Andy Robertson was heard repeatedly shouting “Keep going” at his teammates when they were already 5-0 up showing no mercy. Or there was the sight of Alex Ferguson shaking his head, sighing in the Old Trafford directors’ box at seeing the shambles unfolding

Many B.C. residents will now be allowed to attend events like hockey games, concerts and weddings without any limits on numbers.

Attendees at all organized events in B.C. will be required to wear
The provincial government announced Tuesday that it is spending $20 million this year to hire 193 new inspections staff and launch a proactive inspections program in Ontario's long-term care homes. Proactive inspections were all but stopped by the province before the pandemic, as a CBC News investigation showed that only nine out of 626 homes in Ontario actually received so-called "resident quality inspections" in 2019. The long-term care sector was devastated by COVID-19, with a Canadian Armed

KHARTOUM (Reuters) -Sudan's military seized power from a transitional government on Monday and a health ministry official said seven people were killed by gunfire and 140 injured in clashes between soldiers and street protesters. The leader of the takeover, General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, dissolved the military-civilian Sovereign Council that had been established to guide the country to democracy following the overthrow of long-ruling autocrat Omar al-Bashir in a popular uprising two years ago. Burhan announced a state of emergency, saying the armed forces needed to protect safety and security.
