WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate confirmed Bridget Brink late Wednesday as U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, filling the post as officials plan to return American diplomats to Kyiv during the nation's continuing battle against the Russian invasion. The veteran foreign service officer, who has spent most of her career in the shadow of the former Soviet Union, was nominated to the position last month by President Joe Biden. She was confirmed by the Senate unanimously without a formal roll call vote. America
HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Vote counting in Pennsylvania's Republican primary for the U.S. Senate dragged into a third day as Dr. Mehmet Oz and former hedge fund CEO David McCormick remained essentially tied with tens of thousands of ballots left to tally. Oz, who was endorsed by former President Donald Trump, led McCormick by 1,240 votes, or 0.09 percentage points, out of 1,334,376 ballots counted as of midday Thursday. The race remained close enough to trigger Pennsylvania’s automatic recount law,
The Missouri Supreme Court denied a request by U.S. Senate candidate Mark McCloskey and his wife to give free legal advice to a conservative activist group as a condition of their professional probation, but McCloskey said Thursday he'll try to find another right-wing organization to represent. Mark and Patricia McCloskey of St. Louis were placed on probation as lawyers in February. The decision stemmed from their actions in June 2020 when they raised guns at racial injustice protesters who vent

In November 2022, historic flooding devastated communities in the interior and Fraser Valley regions of British Columbia. To mark the six-month anniversary, CBC held a special live broadcast in Abbotsford to share the stories of people still trying to rebuild. This story is part of our series, "Six Months Later." Cherylle Douglas returned to her mobile home park in Merritt, B.C., several months after it was hit by floods from the nearby Coldwater River, but she says the homecoming wasn't all tha
Two of the leaders of Ontario's four major political parties are sidelined with COVID-19 with two weeks left to election day. Both NDP Leader Andrea Horwath and Green Party Leader Mike Schreiner have tested positive.
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — It was lunch hour at the abortion clinic, so the nurse in the recovery room got her Bible out of her bag in the closet and began to read. “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding,” her favorite proverb says, and she returns to it again and again. “He will make your paths straight.” She believes God led her here, to a job at the West Alabama Women’s Center, tending to patients who’ve just had abortions. “I trust in God,” said Ramona, w
Just in time for the May long weekend, the Trans-Canada Highway will reopen to traffic through Golden, British Columbia, starting at noon on Friday. Since April 12, Alberta drivers travelling to B.C. west of Golden have had to take a 90-minute detour from the Castle Junction intersection west of Banff, Alta., travelling south on Highway 93 through Kootenay National Park, then north from Radium, B.C., up Highway 95. The detour was to allow for crews to work on phase four of the Kicking Horse Cany
Former U.S. Marine Trevor Reed described his experience in a Russian psychiatric facility in an interview broadcast on Friday, detailing squalid conditions amid severely mentally ill inmates. Reed, detained in Russia in 2019, was freed on April 28 in a prisoner swap that took place amid the most tense bilateral relations in decades over the war in Ukraine. In excerpts from an interview with CNN, Reed said he was held with seven other prisoners in a cell at a psychiatric treatment facility.
HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Summer Lee has won a five-way Democratic primary for a Pittsburgh-based U.S. House seat, making her the favorite in the heavily Democratic district to win the fall general election and become the first Black woman elected to Congress from Pennsylvania. Friday was the fourth day of counting ballots after Tuesday's primary in the closely contested race for the open 12th District seat. Lee, a second-term state House member, lawyer and former labor organizer, comes from the pa
The N.W.T. public prosecution service has set up a specialized team to handle cases involving sexual assault, to give trauma-informed supports to victims going through the court process. "We want to try to make it as comfortable as possible, knowing that it's never going to be an easy process," said Annie Piché, general counsel for the new team. The team will rely on input from members of the community who are affected by sexual violence to develop culturally-sensitive and trauma-informed approa
As Canada's busiest airport, in Toronto, grapples with unusually long lines, a global airline trade group has urged Canadian authorities to take action to curb the hours-long queues ahead of the upcoming summer travel season. Airports from Canada to England are wrestling with long-lines and delays, as a staffing crunch combined with surging travel demand following a pandemic-induced slump raises fears of chaos in some regions ahead of the busy summer season. In Canada, frustrated passengers have taken to social media in recent weeks to vent their anger, posting photos and videos of long lines at customs and security and piled-up baggage at Pearson International Airport in Toronto.
SAINT JOHN, N.B. — A police watchdog agency says New Brunswick RCMP officers who killed a knife-wielding man should not face charges. The Serious Incident Response Team, referred to as SIRT, says in a report released today that the two responding officers had reasonable grounds to believe the force used was necessary to protect themselves during the Dec. 31, 2021 confrontation on the Kingston peninsula. The report says the incident began when a woman went to the RCMP detachment in Hampton, N.B.,
Hundreds of Islanders are missing their diagnostic imaging appointments. There have been about 200 missed appointments each month over the last few months — double the amount that were missed in February and early March of 2020, according to Health P.E.I. Gailyne MacPherson, the director of diagnostic imaging for Health P.E.I., says the province has been sending text or phone reminders for ultrasounds, MRIs and mammograms through an app called Skip the Waiting Room.

Much of the discussion about Canada's real estate market has been dominated by the meteoric rise in the cost of housing. But what's often missing from that conversation is the parallel increase in what Canadians pay in real estate commissions nearly every time a home is bought or sold. For example, a brokerage representing a buyer in 2005 in the Greater Toronto Area would have earned a commission of about $8,795 on the average single-family home — while in December 2021, the buyer's brokerage wo
For the first time in a decade, Whitehorse has a new draft official community plan and its main focus is how Whitehorse officials will address the ongoing housing crunch in city boundaries. "Housing certainly is probably the number one issue in our community," said Mike Gau, the city's director of development services. "I don't think it's any coincidence that … the highlights ... are all directly related to housing." The 112-page draft plan sets out the city's priorities for land use planning an
