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

The fate of Carl Girouard, the 26-year-old man charged in the Quebec City sword attacks of 2020, is now in the hands of the jury, which was sequestered and sent off to deliberate Monday morning. In his instructions, Quebec Superior Court Justice Richard Grenier reminded the jurors of their oath to base their decision purely on the evidence and facts presented during the trial, and to remain impartial and independent. "This decision is yours entirely," he told the jury. "Your verdict has to be fo
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.

HALIFAX — A workplace death investigation is underway following a fatality last week at a Michelin tire plant in Nova Scotia. The provincial Department of Labour issued a brief statement Sunday saying a worker died Wednesday at Michelin’s plant in Waterville, N.S.

Windsor is not yet out of the running for a new, $2.5 billion LG Chem plant, the company said. The plant would supply cathodes and other materials to the EV battery plant being constructed in Windsor by LG and Stellantis. Invest Windsor-Essex CEO Stephen MacKenzie recently said on May 10 that LG Chem wouldn't be constructing the plant in Windsor over concerns with the available energy supply. However, on Monday, an LG Chem spokesperson told CBC Windsor via email that a final decision on the plan
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

A Maud Lewis painting once traded for a grilled cheese sandwich 50 years ago in London, Ont., has sold for $350,000 at auction. It marks the first time a painting by the artist has exceeded a sale of $100,000. The previous record price for her work was set in November 2021 when Train Station In Winter fetched $67,250.

In a remote Arctic coastal area in the Northwest Territories, the smoldering earth is so hot that it will melt your boots. And there, researchers say they have found a mineral formation that could hold clues to understanding Mars and its history. The Smoking Hills area between Tuktoyaktuk and Paulatuk, N.W.T., — known as Ingniryuat in Inuvialuit communities— is unusual because it is home to a mineral called jarosite, which is plentiful on the red planet but found in only a few places on Earth.

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
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
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
