Canada's top court was adjudicating on the case challenging a 2020 decision by a Quebec court to lower Alexandre Bissonnette's parole eligibility to 25 years from the original sentence that required him to wait much longer for the possibility of parole. The Supreme Court said that such a punishment removes a realistic possibility of parole and called it "incompatible with human dignity."

STAVANGER, Norway (AP) — Europe’s frantic search for alternatives to Russian energy has dramatically increased the demand — and price — for Norway's oil and gas.

In a northeast Calgary gym, two men sit opposite a plank of wood, holding a stick in between them. They each pull as hard as they can, until one lets go and tumbles backward to the ground. This is mas wrestling, a traditional stick pulling game that has roots in the Sakha Republic, in northeastern Russia. It isn't very common in Canada, but Andrew Bolinger hopes to change that. The Calgary man owns a gym that's home to a small but growing community of mas wrestlers. "It's kind of starting from s
