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.
TORONTO — Ontario Premier Doug Ford says the province is set to make an announcement later this week about reducing COVID-19 restrictions. He told Ottawa radio station CFRA today that he hates putting the public health measures in place and that there will soon be some positive news on that front. The government announced on Jan. 3 that, due to the highly transmissible Omicron variant driving up COVID-19 infections and hospitalizations, restrictions would be placed on businesses until at least J
The NDP says it is working with the ethics commissioner and intends to file a formal disclosure report on a $1,895 rocking chair given to NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh's wife in exchange for posting about the item on her Instagram account.

The party said Singh would repay the cost of the chair after CBC reported it was given to him and his w

U.S. President Joe Biden is predicting a Russian invasion of Ukraine, saying a 'minor incursion' would elicit a lesser Western response than a full-blown invasion. Ukrainian officials worry the comment gives Vladimir Putin a green light to act.
THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — A man who stood outside the home of a former Dutch foreign minister shouting and waving a burning torch was sent to prison Wednesday for six months, Dutch media reported. Threats aimed at Dutch politicians have increased in recent years amid a polarization fueled by the pandemic and lockdown measures. Prime Minister Mark Rutte last week called such intimidation “completely unacceptable.” The suspect, identified as Max van den B., was detained two weeks ago outside t

NEW YORK (AP) — Why is it better to wear an N95 than a cloth mask right now? Health experts suggest stepping up protection against the highly contagious omicron variant with stronger masks such as N95s or KN95s. It's especially important now with health care systems under strain, and with people in higher-risk situations such as crowded, indoor settings for extended periods, says Linsey Marr, who studies viruses at Virginia Tech. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently updat
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. The judge's reasons included the board's lack of notice to park reside
The review based on studies involving around 65,000 pregnancies at different stages did not find any sign of higher risk of complications, miscarriages, preterm births or severe side-effects on the unborn babies from mRNA shots, the European Medicines Agency said. Pfizer and German partner BioNTech, as well as Moderna, currently supply such vaccines to the European Union.
WASHINGTON (AP) — In a self-appraisal that didn't always fit with the facts, President Joe Biden on Wednesday made the dubious assertion that he's outperformed all expectations on the pandemic in his first year and inflated his contribution to COVID-era economic growth. A look at some of Biden's comments in a news conference that stretched for nearly two hours: PANDEMIC BIDEN on COVID-19: “I didn’t overpromise. I have probably outperformed what anybody thought would happen.” THE FACTS: That's a
Amazon.com Inc's recipe for the department store of the future includes algorithmic recommendations and what one corporate director called "a magic closet" in the fitting room. "We wouldn't do anything in physical retail unless we felt we could significantly improve the customer experience," said Simoina Vasen, a managing director. At 30,000 square feet (2,787 sq meters), the planned "Amazon Style" shop near Los Angeles is smaller than the typical department store.

MELBOURNE (Reuters) -An Australian court said on Thursday it dismissed tennis superstar Novak Djokovic's challenge to his visa cancellation as the minister who revoked it reasonably believed Djokovic, who is not vaccinated against COVID-19, may be a risk to the community. The Federal Court also rejected the argument there was no evidence that Djokovic had ever urged anyone not to get vaccinated, saying it was open to infer that the public would perceive that he was opposed to vaccinations, since he said he had not been vaccinated. Djokovic's saga has fuelled global debate over the rights of people who opt not to get vaccinated as governments look to protect the community from the coronavirus pandemic.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. Bernie Sanders suggested Tuesday that he'd support primary challengers against Democratic colleagues Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema, further intensifying a political battle pitting members of President Joe Biden's party against one another. Sanders told reporters that he thinks "there is a very good chance” that Manchin, a West Virginia Democrat, and Sinema, a Democrat from Arizona, could face challenges in their states' Democratic primaries. He said home-state voters woul
