PARIS (AP) — There’s still room for diplomacy in the Ukrainian crisis. At least that’s the conviction of French President Emmanuel Macron, who continues to push for dialogue with Russia despite signs pointing to a potential war. His stance reflects France’s post-World War II tradition of carving its own geopolitical path, refusing to line up blindly behind the U.S. It’s also part of Macron’s domestic political strategy amid campaigning for April’s presidential election, where nationalists are se
Conservative Party Leader Erin O’Toole said Thursday that he would meet with truckers on Friday as a trucker convoy rumbles toward Ottawa.

SURREY, B.C. — The Mounties called in explosive experts after a person walked into one of their offices in Surrey, B.C., with a grenade on Thursday. The RCMP say someone went to their Guildford office to hand over the device, saying it was found at a nearby park. The office and surrounding area had to be evacuated because it was unclear if the grenade was still functioning. Streets around the detachment were also closed as a precaution. Const.

During the annual state of the university address, University of Windsor president Robert Gordon touched on how learning could develop after the pandemic, saying the institution should listen to student concerns regarding increasing accessibility to learning.

Cargo ships are moving through the St. Clair River in the Windsor-Detroit corridor again thanks to a resumption in ice breaking in the area. Windsor Port Authority harbour master Peter Berry said this winter has been a slow one in terms of ice accumulation, and the Canadian Coast Guard cutter Samuel Risley wasn't needed until this week. "It's been a very slow season for us relative to ice breaking," he told CBC News. "We do speak on the phone daily with industry, with U.S. and Canadian coast gua
OTTAWA — The big rigs began rolling into downtown Ottawa midday Friday, as a planned anti-vaccine mandate protest began to swell in number and energy, with some in attendance promising to stay put until Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is forced out. The Ottawa Police Service said it was calling in reinforcements to help keep the peace as hundreds of vehicles and long-haul trucks continued their trek toward the nation's capital to demand an end to all COVID-19 restrictions, including vaccine passpo
OTTAWA — Erin O'Toole faced restive MPs and grassroots questions about his leadership on the first day of a Conservative caucus retreat — and worse could be yet to come Thursday when MPs are presented with a long-awaited post mortem on the party's election loss. Wednesday marked the first time O'Toole has met with his team this year as he continues dealing with calls for his leadership to be reviewed and some in caucus questioning his ability to even do the job. Among things discussed behind clo
OTTAWA — It's difficult to forget the tragic scenes that played out in long-term care homes across the country in the early days of the pandemic as residents died in the thousands, isolated from their loved ones. While vaccines have played a major role in protecting homes from the same deadly toll the first wave of COVID-19 took on residents, the impact has still been profound during the Omicron wave. "It's staggering when you just look at the number of homes in outbreak," said Dr. Samir Sinha,
Edmonton will spend $14 million to build a new above-ground parking lot at the Orange Hub, city council decided Thursday, despite a push from some councillors to explore more development options at the site. The existing parking lot at the city-owned centre at 100th Avenue and 156st Street needs to be demolished or permanently closed this year because of structural issues, a city report shows. The above-ground parking lot will include 181 spaces for vehicles, bicycles and motorcycles in a three-

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Christian Pulisic, Weston McKennie and Tyler Adams started together for the first time in almost three years, and Jesús Ferreira was picked over Ricardo Pepi at forward for the United States' World Cup qualifier against El Salvador on Thursday night. U.S. coach Gregg Berhalter changed five starters from the previous qualifier, a 1-1 draw at Jamaica in November. Goalkeeper Matt Turner, defender Walker Zimmerman and Ferreira were the only starters from Major League Soccer, pl
ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Alaska lawmakers are discussing whether to sanction a member of the state House who is also a member of the Oath Keepers far-right paramilitary organization, a newspaper reported. Possible actions being discussed include expelling state Rep. David Eastman, a Republican from Wasilla, censure or a vote of disapproval, lawmakers told the Anchorage Daily News. “I think what we’ve been learning about Rep. Eastman is extremely concerning. And I think it needs to be addressed.
It's been 77 years since prisoners at Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest Nazi concentration camp, were liberated near the end of the Second World War, but a Saskatchewan rabbi said people still don't understand the severity of the extermination camps. Thursday is International Holocaust Remembrance Day and as Rabbi Claudio Jodorkovsky, a part of Congregation Agudas Israel in Saskatoon, reflects on the commemorative day, he's also thinking about how racial and religious prejudice remains. "I think i
As a high number of COVID-19 infections, driven by the Omicron variant, collides with our traditional influenza season, provinces and territories are shifting coronavirus tracking in schools. Like most sectors, education is grappling with serious limitations in COVID-19 testing after multiple regions drastically cut access to PCR tests amid sky-rocketing cases, and any tracking of rapid antigen tests typically relies on self-reporting. So officials are largely falling back on a familiar metric i
