It's an eyebrow-raising statistic: Essex County OPP says there's a 63 per cent increase in vehicle thefts compared to this time last year. And often, it involves people either leaving their keys or key fobs unattended in their vehicles. Const. Steven Duguay says organized crime is often tied to vehicle thefts. But outside of that, he says, they're typically "crimes of opportunity." "You'll have people walking through neighbourhoods at night and checking door handles on cars, looking for loose ch
ST. JOHN'S, N.L. — Newfoundland and Labrador officials say the state of emergency called last weekend because of raging wildfires in the centre of the province will end on Saturday.

WASHINGTON (AP) — A divided Congress gave final approval Friday to Democrats' flagship climate and health care bill, handing President Joe Biden a back-from-the-dead triumph on coveted priorities that the party hopes will bolster their prospects for keeping their hold on Congress in November's elections. The House used a party-line 220-207 vote to pass the legislation, which is but a shadow of the larger, more ambitious plan to supercharge environment and social programs that Biden and his party

A massive power outage in southeastern New Brunswick on Wednesday evening was caused by a tree that was cut, N.B. Power says. RCMP are now investigating, the utility said Thursday. N.B. Power spokesperson Dominique Couture said in an email that a large tree fell on a key piece of equipment in the Moncton area. It affected two transmission lines, and more than 50,000 customers lost power for several hours. Transmission lines feed smaller distribution networks. Couture compared it to a highway and

White tipped sharks are sleek and beautiful animals that live in many waters around the world. These sharks make their home in Papua New Guinea, patrolling the tall pillars that rose from underwater volcanic eruptions millions of years ago. The sharks feed on the smaller fish that make their home around the rocky ledges and the coral that grows on them. A group of scuba divers have entered the ocean to study the sharks and gather photographs and video footage of their feeding behaviour. Understanding the sharks is a crucial first step in helping with their conservation. Using scraps of fish, the sharks are encouraged to come closer for a close up view. This will help the researchers to observe and record injuries, parasites, growth rates, and other important data. The bait does its job and the sharks show very little shyness. Some even come close enough that they could literally receive a belly rub. There is a strict hands off policy here though, as physically interacting with the animal life is usually irresponsible. As we see though, sometimes the sharks do not obey these rules. One shark was engaging in what is known as testing behaviour. White tips will bump a diver, or other prey, to see what the reaction will be. Anything that is regarded as a submissive or fearful reaction will encourage a more aggressive follow up, with potentially serious consequences. It is advisable to demonstrate that the shark will not be allowed to bite without challenge. This researcher does exactly what an experienced and confident scuba diver will do and she shows the shark that she will not allow a bite. Although touching the sharks is to be avoided at all costs, this is a definite exception. The shark was not injured in any way and the strike would not cause pain. A shark's nose is tough enough that it would barely feel the impact of a human punch. But the message was clear and the shark abruptly turned in a different direction. See these incredible animals close enough to touch never gets old. It also demonstrates how sharks will rarely attack a human with the intent to bite, unless the human acts fearfully or irresponsibly.

It's not what you'd expect to find on the 29th floor of a Toronto office building. Instead of cubicles, a complex arrangement of lasers, mirrors and optical fibres run from floor to ceiling, making up the quantum computer called Borealis. And Borealis recently hit a milestone by solving a colossal math problem. "If we ran [the problem] on the most powerful supercomputer out there, it would take 9,000 years. For Borealis, it takes less than a second, which is quite incredible," says Christian Wee

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — The need for Louisiana to replace its voting machines is not in dispute. They are badly outdated — deployed in 2006, the year after Hurricane Katrina struck -- and do not produce paper ballots that are critical to ensuring election results are accurate. What to do about them is another story. The long-running drama includes previous allegations of bid-rigging, voting machine companies claiming favoritism and a secretary of state who is noncommittal about having a new syst
