Quebec Premier François Legault says his government is launching a "massive" vaccination booster campaign to get ahead of the next wave of COVID-19. Legault told reporters today in Quebec City all Quebecers over the age of 18 will be eligible to make an appointment for a booster by the end of the month. He says Quebec residents can get a booster if it's been five months since their last COVID-19 vaccine — or three months since they were last infected with the novel coronavirus. On Monday, Quebec

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.
P.E.I.'s housing minister says the province doesn't want to evict anyone living in Charlottetown's tent cities, but he wants to reassure landowners that authorities won't "turn a blind eye" to the issue.
