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.

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.

Canada's main stock index fell on Tuesday, pulling back from its highest level in nearly eight weeks the day before, as a jump in U.S. Treasury debt yields reduced the attractiveness of stocks, particularly those in the high-growth technology sector.

Brighton also
