Flossey is living a wonderful life on a beautiful farm in Millbrook, Ontario. It's what is knows an "ethical farm" where cows have space to roam and graze instead of being kept indoors for most of their lives. Flossey's farm has vast expanses of lush, green grass, rolling hills, ponds full of fresh water, and forested areas for shade. This is life as it should be for these gentle creatures. Dave is a farm hand who often helps out with some of the chores and animal care. He decided to take a break on this warm, summer day and he took a seat on the hill overlooking the pasture.

She said the latest StatsCan data "rings

WINNIPEG — Manitoba recorded another 12 COVID-19-related deaths and saw hospitalizations rise again Wednesday, as the province's top doctor said the peak of the Omicron wave might be close at hand. Health officials said the number of people in hospital with COVID-19 reached 631, an increase of 11 in one day to set yet another record.

WASHINGTON (AP) — During his first year in office, President Joe Biden took action on a number of his key campaign promises, from rebuilding U.S. alliances globally to distributing vaccines across America and the world. But others remain works in progress or dependent on Congress to address. That's particular true of his promises to reform the nation’s immigration system, where Biden is caught between the demands of his Democratic base and Latino voters and the realities of a steep influx of mig
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Wednesday that decisions regarding Canada's support of the Ukraine, amid escalating tensions with Russia, will be rooted in keeping peace while supporting the Ukrainian people. This comes as Ottawa sent a small group of Canadian Special Forces to Ukraine.
In a time-honoured tradition of Canadian democracy, government regulations become public when they appear in the Canada Gazette. That’s why Ottawa’s proposal to bypass that step is so troublesome.

A British Columbia judge has overturned orders evicting people living at a homeless encampment in downtown Vancouver park, a decision law experts and advocates say could carry precedent and lessons for Halifax. In a ruling delivered last week at the Supreme Court of British Columbia, Justice Matthew Kirchner concluded the Vancouver Park Board was not justified in issuing the eviction orders on July 8 and Sept. 7 of last year.

WINNIPEG — The grand chief of the Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs says the latest court settlement for property owners affected by devastating flooding more than a decade ago is fair. The Manitoba government diverted water from the Assiniboine River to reduce the risk of flooding in Winnipeg in 2011, but the water built up and caused damage on the shores of Lake Manitoba. Last week, courts approved an $85.5 million settlement agreement for anyone who had businesses or owned personal property like ca
