DAKAR, Senegal (AP) — German Chancellor Olaf Scholz began a three-nation trip to Africa on Sunday, a visit that is expected to include talks with African leaders about the geopolitical consequences of the war in Ukraine. Scholz is making stops in Senegal and South Africa as part of his first visit to the continent since becoming chancellor nearly six months ago. Both countries have been invited to attend the G-7 summit in Germany at the end of June. Participants there will try to find a common p

More than 80 per cent of COVID-related deaths in Canada's first wave happened in long-term care homes. And now a new coroner's report out of Quebec paints a devastating picture of how things unfolded at one of the hardest-hit residences. As Dan Spector tells us, the hope is the lessons learned during the first wave will help improve seniors' care across the country.
Ontario reported at least 809 people in hospital with COVID-19 on Sunday, down by more than 300 from Saturday and down by 215 from a week earlier. However, more than 10 per cent of hospitals did not submit their data, as happens occasionally on the weekend, so the number is anticipated to be higher. Of those in hospital, 152 required intensive care — a decrease of eight from the previous day's total — and 72 patients needed the help of a ventilator to breathe. The province reported at least 1,05
TOKYO (AP) — President Joe Biden faced a dilemma on trade in Asia: He couldn't just rejoin the Trans-Pacific Partnership that his predecessor had pulled the U.S. out of in 2017. Many related trade deals, regardless of their content, had become politically toxic for U.S. voters, who associated them with job losses. So Biden came up with a replacement. During Biden's visit to Tokyo, the U.S. on Monday planned to announce the countries that are joining the new Indo-Pacific Economic Framework. In th
Saskatoon's Persephone Theatre is one of 10 that make up Canada's first playwright unit, which is dedicated to elevating the voices of queer and trans writers — a gap the unit's founders have identified in the nation's theatre ecology. The consortium of theatres spread from Vancouver to Halifax are dedicated to bringing together five queer playwrights for the first-ever National Queer and Trans Playwrighting Unit. The result is set to be what the founder, Zee Zee Theatre Company, describes as a

LONDON (AP) — Mohamed Salah and Son Heung-min finished the Premier League season tied as the top scorers on Sunday with 23 goals. Salah has now captured the Golden Boot on three occasions — as the outright winner in the 2017-18 season and sharing the award twice, in 2018-19 and this season. It is the first time Son has topped the scoring chart. Both players scored on the final day. Salah netted Liverpool's second goal in the 3-1 win over Wolverhampton and Son had a double in Tottenham's 5-0 vict
The body of a teenage girl who fell into a river in the Laurentians two weeks ago has been found, provincial police say. First responders were called around 9 a.m. Sunday after someone spotted the body in the waters of the Rivière du Nord, in Piedmont, Que, the Sûreté du Québec said in a statement. Police later confirmed the body they recovered was that of the girl that went missing in the same river on May 12 in Sainte-Adèle. The teenager, whose identity and age has not been made public, was st

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.

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
KYIV, Ukraine (AP) — Russia pressed its offensive in eastern Ukraine on Sunday as Poland's president traveled to Kyiv to support the country's European Union aspirations, becoming the first foreign leader to address the Ukrainian parliament since the start of the war. Lawmakers gave a standing ovation to President Andrzej Duda, who thanked them for the honor of speaking where “the heart of a free, independent and democratic Ukraine beats." Duda received more applause when he said that to end the
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.

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — U.S. Rep. Antonio Delgado will be sworn in Wednesday as New York's next lieutenant governor, Gov. Kathy Hochul announced. Hochul said Monday she will issue a proclamation for a special election to fill her fellow Democrat's seat in upstate New York once he resigns. It remains unclear when that will be. Once a seat becomes vacant, the governor has 10 days to announce a special election held 70 to 80 days later, according to state law. Hochul said the special election will line
