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
Five new water shuttle routes between Montreal and the South Shore are opening this summer under a new pilot project, the regional transit authority announced Wednesday. The Autorité régionale de transport métropolitain (ARTM) will also be bringing back the route linking Pointe-aux-Trembles to Montreal's Old Port for a fourth season. Since 2018 it had been in operation as a pilot project. It ran for only one week in its first year, but over the past three had been given the green light to take o
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
VANCOUVER — Strong winds from an unseasonable storm have knocked out power to thousands on Vancouver Island, the Sunshine Coast and Lower Mainland. Environment Canada posted wind warnings on Wednesday for much of Vancouver Island, the Sunshine Coast and the southern Gulf Islands. The forecast called for very strong southwesterly winds of 70 kilometres per hour, gusting to 90 km/h, but easing by afternoon. Special weather statements have also been posted for more than a dozen areas in southern B.
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
Israel police have arrested one of the Palestinian pallbearers beaten by officers at the funeral of slain Al Jazeera journalist Shireen Abu Akleh, the detained man's lawyer said on Wednesday. A police spokesperson confirmed the arrest of Amro Abu Khdair but said it was not connected to Friday's funeral. Images of baton-wielding Israeli officers beating the pallbearers, who at one point nearly dropped Abu Akleh's coffin, drew widespread international condemnation and stoked anger over the killing of the reporter during an Israeli military raid in the occupied West Bank on May 11.
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. "We are believing that it is
Andrew Chang explores the challenging process for Canada to sever its ties with the British monarchy and the implications it would have on Indigenous communities across the country.
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
WINNIPEG — Manitoba is preparing for more rain as the province cleans up from flash floods and other destruction caused by an extremely wet spring. “All of southern Manitoba is very much in the fight at the moment," Johanu Botha with Manitoba’s Emergency Management Organization said Wednesday. Manitoba has been dealing with high water for weeks. Provincial data indicates most of the southern and central water basins have received more than 150 per cent of normal precipitation since April 1. Almo

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — President Joe Biden hopes to use his visit to Asia to confirm his belief that long-standing friendships can afford to become even friendlier — and pay dividends. His six-day trip starts in South Korea on Friday and ends in Japan at a time when world events are resetting the foundations of the global order. The coronavirus pandemic disrupted supply chains and exposed the fragilities of a trade system focused primarily on low prices for consumers and high profits for corp
