Residents of Hay River, N.W.T., were able to return to town as of 6 p.m. Sunday, but the mayor warns that some areas are still without power, water and sewer services, and road access. "We know that people are frustrated and they've been sitting there waiting," said Kandis Jameson. Now, she added, "At least they have access to their homes — whether they're livable or not, is yet to be seen." Jameson also cautioned returning residents that if their homes are uninhabitable, there are limited-to-no
NEW YORK (AP) — Clint Demspey says he thinks American goalkeepers Zack Steffen and Matt Turner should consider going on loans for the start of next season to get sharp ahead of the World Cup if they are not going to be playing regularly for their Premier League clubs. Turner is leaving Major League Soccer’s New England Revolution this summer for Arsenal, where Aaron Ramsdale displaced Bernd Leno as starting goalkeeper in September. Leno has started one league match since and is expected to trans

St. John's experienced all four seasons on Sunday, but it didn't stop spring cleanup efforts across the city. About 200 people headed to the Outer Ring Road early in the morning to help rid the highway of trash. The entire route from Kenmount Road to Logy Bay Road was closed from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. so teams could safely bag and remove trash.

ROCHESTER, Minn. (AP) — Dr. Scott Jensen, a vaccine skeptic and former state senator, won the Minnesota GOP's endorsement on Saturday to challenge Democratic Gov. Tim Walz in the November election, going over the top on the ninth ballot with 65% of the vote.

ATLANTA (AP) — The great vote-by-mail wave appears to be receding just as quickly as it arrived. After tens of millions of people in the United States opted for mail ballots during the pandemic election of 2020, voters in early primary states are returning in droves to in-person voting this year. In Georgia, one of the mostly hotly contested states, about 85,000 voters had requested mail ballots for the May 24 primary, as of Thursday. That is a dramatic decrease from the nearly 1 million who cas
OTTAWA — The Terry Fox statue across from Parliament Hill will need to be moved to make way for a new building to house MPs and senators, committee rooms and an Indigenous Peoples' space. The planned building, which is rectangular with a nod to neo-classical design, has distinctive copper window facades, a reference to the copper roofs on existing parliamentary buildings. Public Services and Procurement Minister Filomena Tassi says it will cost an estimated $430 million to transform a mix of agi

MONTREAL — Conservative Party of Quebec leader Éric Duhaime is inviting Quebec Liberal Party leader Dominique Anglade to take part in an English-language debate ahead of the October election, even if Premier François Legault declines to take part.

LEEDS, England (AP) — Leeds climbed out of the Premier League's relegation zone in dramatic style Sunday after Pascal Struijk's stoppage-time equalizer secured a 1-1 draw against Brighton. Struijk, an 83rd-minute substitute, headed home at the far post in the second minute of added-on time to lift Leeds a point clear of Burnley after Danny Welbeck had given Albion a halftime lead at Elland Road. Following Burnley’s 1-0 loss at Tottenham earlier Sunday, Struijk’s last-gasp goal ensured Leeds’ bid

HALIFAX — Eighteen months after a public inquiry was established in Nova Scotia to investigate the worst mass shooting in modern Canadian history, lawyers representing most of the 22 victims say they are troubled about its slow progress and lack of witness testimony. "We're frustrated with the pace," said Josh Bryson, a lawyer whose firm represents the family of Peter and Joy Bond, a retired couple in their 70s who were fatally shot in their home in Portapique, N.S., on the night of April 18, 20
There's a new night market in Toronto — superfresh — that aims to bring a fresh cultural experience and create a safe space for people to celebrate and discover Asian cuisine. Night markets have been a tradition in parts of Asia where it gets so hot during the day that people prefer shopping and dining in the evenings. Superfresh, which is located in the former Annex Food Hall at 384 Bloor St. West, pays homage to those spaces as an all-day night market that includes multiple vendors that centre
When Rebekah Patenaude was in high school, she went to prom with a male date. Not because she wanted to — she would have preferred no date at all — but because it was important to her friend. "It was really awkward," recalls Patenaude, 24, who started identifying as queer when she was 21. "I didn't understand why, but now it's clear to me… Like every other high school student, you try to fit in. But now I'm like, I don't want to fit in. Fitting in is boring. I want to be myself." Patenaude is on
Pope Francis on Sunday declared 10 people saints of the Roman Catholic Church, including an anti-Nazi Dutch priest murdered in the Dachau concentration camp and a French hermit monk assassinated in Algeria. Francis limped to a chair behind the altar but stood to individually greet some participants. Francis read the canonisation proclamations while seated in front of the altar and 10 cheers went up in the crowd as he officially declared each of 10 saints.

RUSKA LOZOVA, Ukraine (Reuters) -Russia pummelled positions in the east of Ukraine on Sunday, its defence ministry said, as it sought to encircle Ukrainian forces in the battle for Donbas and fend off a counteroffensive around the strategic Russian-controlled city of Izium. The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) secretary general, meanwhile, told a meeting in Germany that Ukraine could win the war, calling for more military support and fast-track approval of Finland and Sweden's expected bids to join the alliance.
