A public inquiry into the Nova Scotia mass shooting heard from a retired officer who led the tactical response, and was critical of the RCMP for not having enough staff, proper technology or mental health support to deal with the incident and its aftermath.
WATFORD, England (AP) — Jamie Vardy and Harvey Barnes each scored twice as Roy Hodgson’s final home match in charge of already-relegated Watford ended in an embarrassing 5-1 Premier League loss to Leicester on Sunday. Joao Pedro’s deflected effort gave the Hornets an early lead in front of incoming head coach Rob Edwards. But familiar defensive issues contributed to the hosts’ downfall as James Maddison’s leveler and doubles from Vardy and Barnes condemned them to a 26th Premier League loss of a
BEIRUT (AP) — When Lebanon’s economic collapse accelerated six months ago, Abdul-Hamid Yamout lost his job at Beirut’s international airport — and with it all sense of security. Since then, he's struggled to provide for his family, worrying constantly about the future of his two children. On Sunday, he planned to use the ballot box to punish the ruling class by voting for a list of independents. “I will give them my vote because they want change,” he said, recalling his participation in nationwi
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. Despite a cold rain turning to snow in the early afternoon, 15-year-old Lucas Barrett was committed to the cause. "It doesn't really bother me much," he said
Moncton is undertaking a study of what it could take to switch its public transit fleet to electric power. City councillors voted unanimously Monday in favour of awarding a sole-source contract to the not-for-profit Canadian Urban Transit Research and Innovation Consortium. The study, expected to take 30 weeks, will begin this year. Angela Allain, Moncton's director of public transit, said it will examine everything from the existing transit garage and diesel fleet to whether supplementary charg
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

Will Towell is at an impasse: either live in a homeless shelter with cockroaches he hates or move back to a tent in the bush and deal with a bunch of other critters. What the 64-year-old Kingston, Ont., resident really needs is a wheelchair-accessible unit in social housing. But it could be years before a spot opens up and market rent for a decent apartment is far beyond what his monthly disability support cheque provides. While the thought of living outdoors tempts him, Towell decides to tough
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
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
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
Ontario reported 1,024 COVID-19 hospitalizations on Sunday, down by 368 from Saturday. However, more than 10 per cent of hospitals did not update their hospitalization data. Of those in hospital, 151 required intensive care — a decrease of five from the previous day's total — and 70 patients needed the help of a ventilator to breathe. The province reported at least 1,564 new cases of COVID-19 on Sunday, down by 11 from Saturday. These cases were confirmed through the 12,250 tests processed withi

The short chapter of a Calgary site in the tragic history of Canada's residential school system will not be forgotten if the City of Calgary and Treaty 7 nations can agree on how to do that. St. Dunstan's industrial school was operated by the Anglican Church from 1892 to 1907 on land that is now in southeast Calgary. Located between Deerfoot Trail and the Bow River, a short distance south of the Calf Robe Bridge, the city has owned the land for several decades. The city is interested in working
Toronto police say a 36-year-old man remains in life-threatening condition after he was hit by a car, then dragged for 100 metres along Church Street in The Village. Officers were called to the area of Church Street and Wood Street shortly after midnight on Sunday. The man was standing in a northbound lane when a grey Honda minivan struck him and dragged him before crashing into an outdoor patio set up in the lane. Police said the driver fled the scene but they found his vehicle on Jarvis Street
PHOENIX (AP) — The Arizona Senate on Monday opened an ethics investigation into a firebrand Republican member who tweeted inflammatory comments about last weekend's racist attack at a Buffalo, New York, supermarket that left 10 people dead. The referral of Sen. Wendy Rogers of Flagstaff to the Ethics Committee was in lieu of the immediate expulsion that Democratic lawmakers were planning, GOP Majority Leader Rick Gray said. Due process considerations require no less than an ethics investigation,
Montreal police are now treating the death of a man found inside a burned vehicle in the city's east end as a homicide. Emergency crews were called about a vehicle on fire in Pointe aux Prairies Park, on Gouin Boulevard, in the Rivière-des-Prairies borough just after midnight on Sunday. Once the flames were extinguished, officers found a dead body in the trunk of the vehicle, according to Jean-Pierre Brabant, spokesperson for the Service de Police de la Ville de Montréal (SPVM). "For now, we're
Ontarians pay the second highest auto insurance premiums in Canada, according to data from the General Insurance Statistical Agency. The average yearly insurance payment in 2018 was $1,505, behind only British Columbia at $1,832 — and that province has since taken steps to lower costs significantly. The punishing cost of auto insurance is a perennial campaign issue in Ontario, with seemingly every general election bringing lofty commitments to make coverage more affordable. With life becoming mo
