The Conservatives are joining a growing number of calls for Canada Soccer to cancel a controversial exhibition game against Iran set for next month in Vancouver. The families of those who died aboard Flight PS752 when the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) shot down the plane in 2020 — killing all 176 passengers and crew members, including 85 Canadians and permanent residents — say they plan to protest outside the stadium if the match goes ahead. The families say they see the exhibition ma
A rematch three years in the making is the most important game of the season so far for the Vancouver Whitecaps, says head coach Vanni Sartini. The club knows it must beat Cavalry FC in the second round of the Canadian Championship on Wednesday in order to advance — and Vancouver's record against the Canadian Premier League side isn't exactly positive. The 'Caps were heavily favoured when they came up against Cavalry in the 2019 tournament. But Calgary stunned with a 2-1 aggregate win, ousting t
A Saskatchewan woman is trying to bring her family to Canada after they were forced to flee two war zones — first from Afghanistan and then Ukraine. "It's been really stressful, especially for me.

Hussain came to Canada several years ago for her education. She's also working two jobs to support herself and her family
VANCOUVER — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says Canada Border Services Agency will be the department that decides whether Iran's men's soccer team is allowed into the country for a game next month. Canada is set to host Iran in a friendly match in Vancouver on June 5, but controversy about the game has swirled and Trudeau said last week that the event was ill advised. Speaking to media in Vancouver on Tuesday, the prime minister said his view has not changed. "I've expressed my concern that I thi

KUUJJUAQ, Que. — Daniel Gabois would usually be out hunting this time of year. Flocks of Canada geese have started to appear overhead in their V-formations, returning to nesting grounds in the northern Quebec region of Nunavik. That's the signal for him and many others in his hometown of Kuujjuaq to head out on the land. But the electrician and entrepreneur is working 10- to 12-hour days, trying to finish more work than he can keep up with as companies and governments scramble to fill a critical
For Japan, U.S. President Joe Biden's comment he would be willing to use force to defend Taiwan signalled no formal change in policy. Biden's remark on Monday - during his first Asia visit since taking office - appeared to stretch the limits of the U.S. policy of "strategic ambiguity" toward self-ruled Taiwan, to China's anger. While the United States has a commitment under its Taiwan Relations Act "to help provide Taiwan the means to defend itself", it has long declined to make clear how it might react in the event of a Chinese attack on the island.

Quebec Premier François Legault sought to reassure anglophones that his government's language law reform, adopted on Tuesday, won't prevent people from accessing health care in English. The law, known as Bill 96, passed by a vote of 78-29, with the Opposition Liberals opposing it on the grounds that it goes too far and the Parti Québécois opposing it on the grounds that it is too timid. Legault told reporters after the vote that the law introduced by his Coalition Avenir Québec party is "moderat
