After moving around the continent for years, a military family is putting roots down, literally, in Nova Scotia's Annapolis Valley. Krista Adams' husband Brad was posted in Colorado when the two decided they wanted to move back to Nova Scotia — they fell in love with the province during Brad's previous postings at CFB Greenwood. "We were just kind of done with moving around," Adams said in an interview with CBC's Information Morning Monday. In August 2020, the couple bought a house in Avonport s

WASHINGTON (AP) — Elections in Wyoming and Alaska on Tuesday could relaunch the political career of a former Republican star and effectively end the career of another — at least for now. Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney is the vice chair of a U.S. House committee seeking to expose the truth behind former President Donald Trump's relentless efforts to stay in power after losing the 2020 election, and his role in fomenting the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. Cheney's determination to prevent Trump
Back in the U.S., days after the FBI search for top secret files at Mar-a-Lago, Donald Trump's potential legal problems seem to keep piling up. The former president now claims authorities seized executive-privileged material and is demanding them back. While a spokesperson has said that Trump had a standing order that documents taken to his Florida home were deemed "declassified." As Jennifer Johnson reports, those claims aren't holding up.

CHESTER, England (AP) — Manchester City defender Benjamin Mendy was described by prosecutors as a “predator” who could not take no for an answer as the trial began Monday of the French soccer player accused of eight counts of rape. Mendy also has been accused of one count of attempted rape and one count of sexual assault. He is alleged to have committed the offenses against seven young women between October 2018 and August last year. He denies the charges. Timothy Cray, the lawyer for the prosec
After a two-year break, wood carvers got a chance to show off their artistic talent in Saint Andrews. The 15th annual New Brunswick Wood Carving Competition welcomed carvers from around the province this weekend, and from as far away as British Columbia and Alabama. Like most other events, the competition took a two-year break because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Gord Willett, an organizer with the New Brunswick Woodcarving Association, said the competition is likely the second largest one in Canad

While inflation may be hurting ordinary Quebecers' pocketbooks, it's done the opposite for a provincial government that has seen its projected deficit shrink by billions of dollars, according to a report released Monday ahead of the fall election campaign. The government's projected finances are "plausible" despite global economic uncertainty that threatens to darken the rosy picture, said auditor general Guylaine Leclerc, who was tasked with reviewing a pre-election financial report by Quebec's
Canadian North's direct flight between Iqaluit and Toronto will be ending after the September long weekend, about a month earlier than expected. "We were planning to run it through September, and we were keeping a sharp eye on it as well, just if there was the volume we would maintain the route," said Michael Rodyniuk, president and chief executive officer of Canadian North. He said the number of passengers taking the flight was "a little lighter than expected" and the company is reallocating th

Hamilton had lost in the 2019 and '20 finals. The team's win this year didn't come easily, after nearly blowing a 22-point lead in the final minutes at TD Place.

Some buyers who years ago purchased builds in a housing development in Stayner, Ont., are fuming and calling for government intervention after they were told they would need to fork over $175,000 above what was agreed upon in contracts with the developer before their homes will finally be built. CBC News has spoken with multiple people who bought homes in the Ashton Meadows development roughly 125 kilometres north of Toronto, and who say that in recent weeks, Briarwood Development Group has told

Rudy Holik only has a few months to live — and one of his last wishes is to give away his 10-metre long, hand-built steel boat to someone who can make use of it. In 1994, the Calgary man started building his steel vessel, which weighs more than 4,500 kilograms, in the backyard of his small home in the city's southwest. Now, with a terminal cancer diagnosis and his 80th birthday in October, Holik says he wants to pass the boat on to someone else's skilled hands. "Many people are surprised," Holik
WARNING: This article contains details of suicide and abuse. A South Asian radio host in Richmond, B.C., has been suspended after he commented that the husband of a woman who died by suicide in New York, following what she described as years of domestic abuse, shouldn't automatically be blamed because he hasn't been criminally charged in the tragedy. Paul Brar, a host with Sher E Punjab AM 600, spoke on-air Thursday about the death of Mandeep Kaur, who died by suicide last week after she posted
Alberta Premier Jason Kenney condemned a controversial prize-winning essay that's been criticized for being sexist and racist during his provincewide radio call-in program, but also appeared to downplay the controversy it generated. The topic was the first that host Wayne Nelson raised during Saturday's show on CHQR and CHED, and Kenney responded there was "clearly a breakdown" in how the judges assessed the essays, adding they "screwed up." Nelson had noted in the opening of the program that wh
Whether or not Tehran and Washington accept a European Union "final" offer to revive the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, neither is likely to declare the pact dead because keeping it alive serves both sides' interests, diplomats, analysts and officials said. For U.S. President Joe Biden's administration, there are no obvious or easy ways to rein in Iran's nuclear program other than the agreement, under which Iran had restrained its atomic program in return for relief from U.S., U.N. and EU economic sanctions.
