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. But Kobach, who built a national reputation as an immigration hard-liner while Kansas secretary of state, is now aiming for the state attorney general's office. He f

OTTAWA — The federal government says it has signed a $20-billion final settlement agreement to compensate First Nations children and families harmed by chronic underfunding of child welfare. The Assembly of First Nations and plaintiffs in two class-action lawsuits agreed to the deal, which also accounts for the government's narrow definition of Jordan's Principle.

While hundreds of Quebecers found themselves without a home after Moving Day on July 1, the housing crunch is taking its toll on another group this year. Montreal's SPCA says it took in about 600 animals in the past three months from renters who said they couldn't take their animals with them because their new building doesn't allow pets. "It's something we see every year," said the shelter's executive director Elise Desaulniers. She said the number of surrendered animals during this year's movi

A Calgary police officer killed on duty is being honoured by a Metro Vancouver Transit Police namesake — a four-legged one. Harnett is a two-year-old German shorthaired pointer who is an explosive detection police dog. She's named for Sgt. Andrew Harnett, who was killed during a traffic stop on New Year's Eve 2020 in Calgary after an SUV he'd pulled over took off with the officer hanging onto the driver's side of the vehicle. "We wish to thank the Metro Vancouver Transit Police for honouring Sgt
OTTAWA — The Conservative Party of Canada raised the most money of any federal party in 2021, bringing in $26.4 million in donations during a tumultuous year that ended with an election loss and speculation about the end of Erin O'Toole's leadership. Audited financial statements filed with Elections Canada show that's just shy of $6 million more than the party raised in 2020, and the number of people who gave money to the Tories -- 95,000 -- was up by about 5,000 year-over-year. Justin Trudeau's

Pope Francis has dismissed reports that he plans to resign in the near future, saying he is on track to visit Canada this month and hopes to be able to go to Moscow and Kyiv as soon as possible after that. In an exclusive interview in his Vatican residence, Francis also denied rumours that he had cancer, joking that his doctors "didn't tell me anything about it", and for the first time gave details of the knee condition that has prevented him carrying out some duties. In a 90-minute conversation on Saturday afternoon, conducted in Italian, with no aides present, the 85-year-old pontiff also repeated his condemnation of abortion following the U.S. Supreme Court ruling last month.
