Alberta Premier Jason Kenney condemned a controversial prize-winning essay that's been criticized for being sexist and racist during his provincewide radio call-in program, but also appeared to downplay the controversy it generated. The topic was the first that host Wayne Nelson raised during Saturday's show on CHQR and CHED, and Kenney responded there was "clearly a breakdown" in how the judges assessed the essays, adding they "screwed up." Nelson had noted in the opening of the program that wh
Chief Mi'sel Joe says Miawpukek doesn't get as much snow as it used to. Joe said he used to be on the fence about whether climate change was having a tangible impact on the environment surrounding Miawpukek, a Mi'kmaw community on Conne River on the south coast of Newfoundland, but not anymore. "Things I've seen in the last few years have really convinced me that the world is changing as we know it," he said in an interview with CBC News. Joe said when he grew up, the ice was thick enough to dri

After moving around the continent for years, a military family is putting roots down, literally, in Nova Scotia's Annapolis Valley. Krista Adams' husband Brad was posted in Colorado when the two decided they wanted to move back to Nova Scotia — they fell in love with the province during Brad's previous postings at CFB Greenwood. "We were just kind of done with moving around," Adams said in an interview with CBC's Information Morning Monday. In August 2020, the couple bought a house in Avonport s
WASHINGTON (AP) — Elections in Wyoming and Alaska on Tuesday could relaunch the political career of a former Republican star and effectively end the career of another — at least for now. Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney is the vice chair of a U.S. House committee seeking to expose the truth behind former President Donald Trump's relentless efforts to stay in power after losing the 2020 election, and his role in fomenting the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. Cheney's determination to prevent Trump

The Nature Trust of New Brunswick is urging the public to stop creating rock piles on a coastal nature reserve. The non-profit, which conserves privately owned land throughout the province, is concerned the rock piles are a public safety issue and will disrupt local wildlife on its Cape Enrage Nature Preserve beach, about 19 kilometres east of Fundy National Park. "We really just want to spread awareness with the public about this issue and how important it is to leave the rocks where they are,"
While inflation may be hurting ordinary Quebecers' pocketbooks, it's done the opposite for a provincial government that has seen its projected deficit shrink by billions of dollars, according to a report released Monday ahead of the fall election campaign. The government's projected finances are "plausible" despite global economic uncertainty that threatens to darken the rosy picture, said auditor general Guylaine Leclerc, who was tasked with reviewing a pre-election financial report by Quebec's
After a two-year break, wood carvers got a chance to show off their artistic talent in Saint Andrews. The 15th annual New Brunswick Wood Carving Competition welcomed carvers from around the province this weekend, and from as far away as British Columbia and Alabama. Like most other events, the competition took a two-year break because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Gord Willett, an organizer with the New Brunswick Woodcarving Association, said the competition is likely the second largest one in Canad
More human remains were found Sunday in the same area where police have searched for missing Saint John man Kyle LeBlanc. On Friday evening, a hiker called police after he discovered human remains in the heavily wooded area between Lakewood Heights and Golden Grove Road.

Rocca said it's not clear if the two sets of remains a

Prices of homes in New Brunswick are rising at a steady pace while large declines are reported in Canadian cities to the west, according to newly released statistics. In a report Monday, the Canadian Real Estate Association said the average home price was $629,971 in July, compared with June's average price of $665,850. The drop is steeper when the Greater Toronto and Vancouver areas are removed from the figures. However, in the Atlantic region, prices are mostly continuing to rise but at a slow
Since July, Dmitry Vorobiova, 39, his partner Olena, 36, and their dog have been living with 64-year-old Michael Glover, a software engineer who had extra space in his six-bedroom house after his wife passed away. Strangers before, Glover and the Ukrainian couple have together built a quiet routine in the three-story house in his small town in eastern New Hampshire: Dmitry and Glover jog in the evenings and occasionally the two cook Glover grilled chicken for dinner. Glover's house - now a refuge for the couple, who fled their home in Kharkiv, Ukraine - is a part of a local "sponsor circle," a program that started last year to support evacuated Afghans following the U.S. military's chaotic withdrawal, that has recently expanded to help Ukrainians fleeing Russia's invasion of their country.

Back in the U.S., days after the FBI search for top secret files at Mar-a-Lago, Donald Trump's potential legal problems seem to keep piling up. The former president now claims authorities seized executive-privileged material and is demanding them back. While a spokesperson has said that Trump had a standing order that documents taken to his Florida home were deemed "declassified." As Jennifer Johnson reports, those claims aren't holding up.
The family of a 60-year-old mail courier who was found dead in his Metchosin, B.C., home after a prison break from a nearby minimum-security facility in 2019 is suing the Correctional Service of Canada (CSC), saying it didn't follow its own policies in how it handled and responded to the two inmates. The plaintiffs, Calla and Jessica Payne, daughters of Martin Payne, are seeking damages and costs from the CSC over the loss of their father. "The [plaintiffs] have suffered grievous psychological h
