In a 209-page submission to Manitoba's Court of the Queen's Bench, the PC Party seeks to dismiss candidate Shelly Glover's application to declare the results of the Oct. 30 leadership race invalid and require the party to hold a new vote. Glover lost that race by 363 votes to Heather Stefanson, who

Dr. Deena Hinshaw also says seven of the 11 people were fully vaccinated, two were partially vaccinated and two were unvaccinated.

Climate change could cost Ontario's provincial and municipal governments up to $116 billion by the end of this century, according to a new report from the province's accountability officer.

QUEBEC — A Quebec committee of elected officials says anyone diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease should be able to sign an advance request for medical aid in dying.
