While neither rain, snow, sleet or gloom of night may prevent mail from being delivered, a labour shortage sure will. "It is bad right now," said Sébastien Bernier, Canada Post's superintendent for Yukon and Northern B.C. He said about five to seven daily delivery routes in Whitehorse are going unstaffed. "I would say before a few weeks ago, you were never seeing that. If there was one route not going out, it was the big panic here and we were trying everything to get it covered," he said. The C

As someone who uses a wheelchair, Saleh Sheihk says newer buildings in his Regent Park neighbourhood are mostly accessible, but others need upgrades that aren't always obvious to people who don't have disabilities. "When you go to a place, you don't know what's missing," said Sheikh. "Every place should be accessible for everyone." That's why he joined a group of local volunteers Wednesday to review and rank how accessible Regent Park's public spaces and businesses are. The data they're collecti
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Adam Conover is certain that laughing and thinking at the same time is both possible and downright synergistic. He tested the approach in “Adam Ruins Everything,” in which he punctured conventional wisdom on matters ranging from charity to jaywalking. He's back with “The G Word" — that's “G” for government — a six-episode Netflix series now streaming that's aptly described as a comedy-documentary hybrid. A comic and writer from a family of scientists, Conover digs into how the

He was pronounced dead at about 1:40 p.m. Toronto Police Chief James Ramer said officers were called to the Port Union area

The local health authority is stepping in to help a clinic in a small B.C. community remain open, after it had planned to close over the rising cost of doing business. Dr. Carrie Marshall, physician and owner of Ucluelet Medical Clinic, which serves the community of about 1,700, says increasing rent, the cost of medical supplies and operational costs associated with running a business have been growing, but the wages for physicians have not — and they're set by the province, not by individual do
Bus service in Whistler, Squamish and Pemberton could soon be back on the road as a tentative deal has been reached between the employer and union. Unifor, in a Friday evening statement, said it has signed a tentative agreement with B.C. Transit contractor PW Transit, which runs bus service in the region, following mediated talks. The union says its bargaining committee is "unanimously" recommending workers vote to accept the deal. A vote will take place May 30. The key issues in the strike were

Hamilton police arrested and ticketed a Toronto-based lawyer for trespassing near a Progressive Conservative campaign stop on Thursday evening, but Caryma Sa'd says she was targeted for criticizing party leader Doug Ford. Police say Ford was at the John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport for a campaign stop at about 5:30 p.m. when protesters showed up. Sa'd said she has been asked to leave Ford events in the past and this time RSVP'd to attend the event. She's known for creating cartoons an

Countries around the world on Saturday adopted an initial U.S.-led reform of the rules around disease outbreaks, known as the International Health Regulations (IHR), the United States said. The amendments, adopted at the World Health Organization (WHO) assembly, were agreed at a meeting seen as a once-in-a-generation chance for the U.N. health agency to strengthen its role after some 15 million deaths during the COVID-19 pandemic. The changes sought by Washington, and backed by others such as Japan and the European Union, mark a first step in a broader reform of the IHR, which set out countries' legal obligations around disease outbreaks, expected to take up to two years.

Jamie Mauracher has more on the stigma surrounding the virus, the groups it affects, and how that creates challenges for tracking it.
PARIS (AP) — For a player who doesn’t consider himself to be a striker, Mohamed Salah is the envy of many forwards with his scoring record for Liverpool. “I don’t play No. 9, I play on the wing,” Salah said. “It’s completely different when you play as a winger.” And yet the Egyptian enters the Champions League final on Saturday with 31 goals in 50 games for this season and as the leading forward in English football. An impressive goal return but one eclipsed by the true No. 9 that Real Madrid wi

A Quebec marine mammal research group says the whale was recovered Friday from the waters near Contrecoeur, Que., about 50 kilometres downstream from Montreal. A post to the Quebec Marine Mammal Emergency Response Network's website says the male whale, about 3.8 metres long and believed to be one to two years old, was transported to St-Hya
Iran's state maritime body said on Saturday the crew of two Greek tankers seized by its Revolutionary Guards on Friday had not been detained, and were in good health and being cared for on board their vessels. Iranian forces seized two Greek tankers in the Gulf on Friday, shortly after Tehran warned it would take "punitive action" against Athens over the confiscation of Iranian oil by the United States from a tanker held off the Greek coast. "The crew of the two Greek tankers have not been arrested, and all crew members ... are in good health and are being protected, and provided with necessary services while on board, in accordance with international law," Iran's Ports and Maritime Organization said in a statement carried by state media.
