HAPPY CAMP, Calif. — A wildfire burning in a remote area just south of the Oregon border appears to have caused the deaths of tens of thousands of Klamath River fish, the Karuk Tribe said Saturday. The tribe said in a statement that the dead fish of all species were found Friday near Happy Camp, California, along the main stem of the Klamath River. Tribal fisheries biologists believe a flash flood caused by heavy rains over the burn area caused a massive debris flow that entered the river at or

As a child of the 1980s, Trevor Gould grew up in awe of Jim Henson's muppets, dreaming of a day when he could join them. The artist and educator from Paqtnkek Mi'kmaw Nation, N.S., has gotten pretty close to fulfilling that dream now that he's teamed up with a Nova Scotia theatre company to teach kids the Mi'kmaw language using puppets. Gould co-stars next to Wowkwis — the Mi'kmaw word for fox — in Mermaid Theatre's Animalingo, a video series for school-aged kids that the organization hopes to b
A four-time Gold Cup & Saucer winner ended up in the hospital this weekend following a scary harness racing crash at Charlottetown's Red Shores Race Track & Casino. New Brunswick native Gilles Barrieau, driving Island Beach Boy, was thrown backwards while he was fending off a late challenge in the 12th race of Saturday's card.

The times of cancelled trips range from 5:45 a.m. to 6:39 p.m. and affect different routes across the municipality. The city chose these trips to cancel because they were less popular. But as the list of cancelled trips grows, more people are being affected. Shoma Kazi found out her bus was cancelled the hard way. "I couldn't get to work the other day," Kazi said. "I got to

"There are all sorts of tourists that arrive in our Central Okanagan area to experience this incredible place — you see a drive in police-related incidents corresponding with those tourism numbers and those daily population numbers," said Kelowna RCMP Supt.

EDMONTON — Odd summer timing and an ongoing sexual assault scandal at Hockey Canada could be the reason thousands of tickets to the World Junior Hockey Championship are still available on the eve of the tournament, says an Edmonton professor. Prof. Dan Mason, who teaches in the faculty of kinesiology, sport, and recreation at the University of Alberta, said when Canada hosts, there are usually so many fans who want to see the home team take the ice that they are willing to buy Hockey Canada's pa
Tenants of a North York apartment building are calling on their landlord to rescind all temporary eviction notices issued to people who live on the first floor. The notices, known as N13 forms, have been issued to about a dozen tenants of 1570 Lawrence Ave. W., a six-storey building with 87 units.

The New Brunswick government will now exchange the driver's licences of Ukrainian refugees — but some Black advocacy groups say the province should do the same for more countries outside Europe.

When the fish were not biting, these fishermen believed it was because there were none to be caught. But this father decided to attach a camera to his hook to see if his sons' claims were correct. When he looked at the footage, he was surprised to see not only a bunch of fish, but that he nearly bonked one on the head when the camera hit the bottom. This father and his sons are fishing in a remote lake in Ontario, Canada. They have chosen a spot in front of a beaver lodge, usually a sure place to catch fish. But as the fish are reluctant to bite, it became difficult to believe that they were there. The camera shows that it was skill, not a lack of fish that made them go back to the cottage empty-handed. The bottom of a lake is a mysterious place and a camera on a string reveals that there is more going on than meets the eye. These fish were actually more curious about the camera than they were about the bait being presented. The lesson in this might be that persistence will pay off eventually and that they shouldn't give up, thinking that nothing lurks below.
