Environment Canada has issued a heat warning for Windsor and Essex County for Monday and Tuesday. The weather authority warns temperatures will be near 31 C, with humidex values in the low forties on Tuesday. Overnight, lows are expected to be about 21 C, which will offer little relief.

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas voters have said no to him twice over the past four years. But Kris Kobach is nonetheless betting that this can be the year he makes a political comeback. His losses, including a 2018 defeat that handed the governor's office in this Republican-leaning state to a Democrat, might end other political careers.

The housing market is already extremely pricey, and even though sales slowed down again in June according to the latest report from the Calgary Real Estate Board, it will take more time for the cost to stabilize. A further increase of the overnight len
Perhaps beavers need holidays too, from all that dam maintenance — especially on Canada Day. Officials say a major washout on the Alaska Highway in B.C. over the holiday weekend was caused by a broken beaver dam that sent a torrent of water through the area, sweeping away a section of the highway in northern B.C. and causing major disruptions for travellers and truckers before a detour opened to traffic on Monday. "There was, you know, quite a bit of water there," said George Smith, a manager wi
