The days of chancing it and taking a trip to K-country without a Kananaskis Conservation Pass are over soon. After a year-long grace period, the province is gearing up to implement enforcement in the coming weeks, with fines in store for those who didn't purchase a single day, multi-day or annual pass. Alberta Parks hasn't issued a single infraction ticket since implementing the pass back in June 2021. But they have been doing educational compliance checks at random trailheads. "Compliance overa

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.

Aimée Hutchinson can't remember a time when horses weren't a part of her life. "It started at the age of three when I fell in love with horses for no reason, living in the middle of the city with parents who didn't know anything about horses," she said of her childhood in Moncton. "One day we went for a bike ride and there happened to be pony rides, right there" in the Kmart parking lot. "And I just couldn't leave." From then on, Hutchinson knew horses were her destiny. She began taking riding l
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

Ticks are out earlier this year, and in bigger numbers. "[We had] early warmth, mild winter, and they're hungry," said Vett Lloyd, biology professor at Mount Allison and head of the Lloyd Tick Lab at the university. Knowing the tick risk is essential, especially as the May long weekend marks the unofficial start to camping season for many people in New Brunswick, Lloyd said. "They're out and partying," Lloyd told Information Morning Moncton. "Their unofficial start to summer happened a while ago
MIDDLETON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin Republicans voted Saturday not to endorse anyone for governor ahead of the GOP primary in August, with former Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch falling just short of the 60% needed to get the nod — and cash — that comes with winning the party's official backing. It marked the first time delegates have not endorsed a candidate for governor. Many activists, and one of Kleefisch's rivals, had argued for not endorsing anyone, saying it would fracture the party. The Republic
VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Francis on Sunday expressed his spiritual closeness to Catholics in China, voicing hope that the church there operates in “freedom and tranquility,’’ but making no mention of a 90-year-old cardinal who was recently arrested in Hong Kong. Addressing the public gathered in St. Peter’s Square for the pontiff's traditional Sunday remarks, Francis noted that the church celebrates, on May 24, the “Blessed Mother Mary, Help of Christians,’’ and recalled that Mary is the patron
Visitors to a popular Fraser Valley recreation site over the Victoria Day long weekend may have noticed something different in the water. New control buoys have been installed at Cultus Lake to serve as a reminder of the 10 km/ speed limit within 30 metres from shore. On any warm summer day hundreds of people can be seen on the lake on boats, kayaks, canoes, paddleboards and jet skis. Over the past two years traffic has increased significantly, according to David Jimmie, chief of the Ts'elxwéyeq
The unofficial kickoff to summer will be a cool yet dry one for much of Western Canada this weekend, while the heat will spend the weekend shifting from the Great Lakes to Atlantic Canada, bringing showers and storms in its wake.
A chance discovery of nearly-forgotten, close to half-century-old kokanee salmon samples from Kluane National Park and Reserve are helping shape present-day conservation efforts. Using modern techniques, researchers at the University of British Columbia (UBC) Okanagan campus extracted DNA from the historic fin and scale samples, collected as part of routine field work in the 1970s and early '80s, and compared it to recent samples from wild and hatchery-raised kokanee. The salmon currently in the
MONTREAL — Quebec's provincial police say the body of a teen girl who fell into a river in Ste-Adele two weeks ago was found today. Police say officers were called around 9 a.m. Sunday after a resident spotted a body in the waters of the Rivière du Nord, north of Montreal. Police later confirmed the body they recovered was of the girl that went missing on May 12. The teenager, whose identity has not been made public, was standing on rocks with three other people under a bridge when she allegedly
Sweat, hard work and maybe a little Irish luck helped propel the 2022 Blue Nose Marathon winner over the finish line. On Sunday, the 19th Blue Nose Marathon returned to the streets of Halifax for its first regular Victoria Day weekend since the pandemic began. The event was held in November last year. Running his first Blue Nose, Nathan Ryan O'Hehir won the marathon handily, finishing in a time of two hours, 42 minutes and 47 seconds. "That was the hardest race I've ever done," Ryan O'Hehir said
