MORA, N.M. (AP) — Nearly 3,000 firefighters in New Mexico kept the nation's largest active wildfire from growing on Monday as they took advantage of cooler weather before the return of more dangerous conditions later in the week. “Overall, a good day,” fire operations chief Alex McBath said Monday night. “Everything stayed within the fire lines.” Firefighters also expanded contingency firebreaks northeast of Santa Fe as forecasters warned that hotter, windier weather will return by Friday. “Just
HFX Wanderers FC is expecting a crowd for Tuesday's visit by Toronto FC in Canadian Championship quarterfinal play.

HFX has already started its cup trail, winning 2-0 at League1 Ontario champion Guelph United on May 10 to reach the quarterfinals. The lure of cup play pittin

In April, the inflation rate on P.E.I. was 8.9 per cent, the highest of any jurisdiction in the country. It means higher costs for items that need to be shipped in, such as baskets for plants at VK Greenhouses in Charlottetown. The greenhouse has had to increase the price of everything by at least 10 per cent to make a profit, said Peter Meijer, operations manager

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

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
VANCOUVER — The sentencing of former Canadian Football League wide receiver Joshua Boden for the murder of a woman in 2009 has been rescheduled to June 16. Justice Arne Silverman read a memorandum in B.C. Supreme Court from Associate Chief Justice Heather Holmes, saying Justice Barry Davies was unable to continue with the matter and Silverman has been tasked with the proceedings. Silverman says he will hear submissions from both counsel on June 16 and then "may or may not" be ready to deliver th
LONDON (Reuters) -The World Health Organization does not believe the monkeypox outbreak outside of Africa requires mass vaccinations as measures like good hygiene and safe sexual behaviour will help control its spread, a senior official said on Monday. Richard Pebody, who leads the high-threat pathogen team at WHO Europe, also told Reuters in an interview that immediate supplies of vaccines and antivirals are relatively limited. His comments came as the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said it was in the process of releasing some Jynneos vaccine doses for use in monkeypox cases.

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 researcher studying moose in New Brunswick and Quebec says recent data shows an infestation of ticks can be fatal for a moose calf. Steeve Côté, a biologist at Laval University, says researchers began to take interest in how ticks were affecting moose after anecdotal evidence arose from the New England states. Hunters and hikers reported finding moose carcasses, especially young moose, showing signs of bad tick infestations. "So we set up a project where we experimentally remove or greatly red
