A burst of good news for strawberry-lovers and farmers: the plump, juicy berries are maturing early this year, at least for one grower. Lots of moisture last fall and this spring, and the lack of late frosts, are making for a bumper crop, according to David Walker, the owner of Sunset U-Pick in Fredericton.

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Clinics were shutting down abortion services in the nation's second-largest state Saturday after Texas' Supreme Court blocked an order briefly allowing the procedure to resume in some cases, the latest in legal scrambles taking place across the United States following the reversal of reversal of Roe v. Wade. The Friday night ruling stopped a three-day-old order by a Houston judge who said clinics could resume abortions up to six weeks into pregnancy. The following day, the A
The U.S. Supreme Court last week voted 6-3 to overturn the Roe v. Wade interpretation of the constitution, finding it does not protect abortion rights and opening the way for states to restrict or outright ban the medical procedure. Prince Edward Island was long considered Canada's most pro-life province, and the Island's abortion politics have a long and fraught history. Here's a look back at the evolution of abortion rights on P.E.I. Decriminalization Abortion in Canada was formally banned in

In a tweet on Saturday, Biden said, "this is a time of war and global peril," and demanded the companies lower gasoline prices, which have soared to about $5 a gallon in many parts of the country. Inflation is far too important a problem for the White House to keep making statements like this.
JERUSALEM (Reuters) -Lebanon's Hezbollah said on Saturday it had sent three unarmed drones towards an Israeli Mediterranean gas rig, which the Israeli military said it had intercepted. There was no immediate response from Lebanese authorities to the incident, which came amid tensions over the location of the Israeli rig and long-standing but so-far fruitless U.S.-mediated efforts to agree on a maritime border. Israeli Defence Minister Benny Gantz said Hezbollah was "preventing the state of Lebanon from reaching an agreement regarding maritime borders, which are critical to the economy and prosperity of the Lebanese nation".

BUENOS AIRES (Reuters) -Argentina's economy minister Martin Guzman, the architect of a recent major debt deal with the International Monetary Fund (IMF), resigned on Saturday as deep splits emerged in the ruling coalition over how to handle mounting economic crises. Guzman, a minister since late 2019 and a close ally of President Alberto Fernandez, posted a letter on Twitter announcing his decision, adding he maintained "confidence in my vision of the path Argentina should follow." The center-left Peronist president is facing his lowest approval rating since taking office in 2019, with cracks in his coalition, inflation running above 60%, the peso currency under growing pressure and sovereign bonds at record lows.

Police in Saanich, B.C., announced Saturday that they're letting locals back into what was for days a crime scene, nearly a week after a shootout left six officers wounded and two twin-brother bank robbers dead. But for witnesses to the deadly violence last Tuesday, the trauma of the events lingers. "The bullet [was] inside our Squeaky's Laundromat, so it was very terrifying … very close," said laundromat owner Edward Park, whose business faces the bank involved. Twenty-two-year-old twin brother
It's been 10 years since Nathalie Trottier made the difficult decision to move out of her home, leaving behind 25 years of abuse at the hands of her partner — but also all of her belongings. "When I left, I lost everything," she recalls of her move, empty-handed, into a women's shelter. That's why a volunteer-powered non-profit that offers free moving and storage services to help women and children escape violence is so dear to her heart — and why a lack of volunteers to keep up with demand is s
MONTREAL — Advocates for Montreal's homeless residents ramped up critiques of Parks Canada over the weekend, saying a series of local camping events the agency has scheduled throughout the summer set a double standard between those with financial means and those without. The events, dubbed learn-to-camp, are described as an opportunity to learn basic camping skills for the price of $108.75 per tent along the Lachine canal in the city's west end. "I laughed out of despair when I saw that," Annie
