Chris Clay has visited Charlottetown's "tent cities" many times over the summer to make sure the people living there have the supplies they need to survive. Clothes, blankets, food, water — as well as clean needles and smoking supplies. And not just for clients of the Native Council of P.E.I, where Clay works as the co-ordinator of the Reaching Home project. "Anyone who's struggling or homeless at the moment, we supply them." Weeks ago, there were more than 20 people living in an encampment on t
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) — Two anti-government extremists sought to spark a “second American revolution” by kidnapping Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, a prosecutor told jurors Wednesday as the government got a second opportunity to get convictions in an alleged plot to shock the country into chaos before the 2020 election. Adam Fox and Barry Croft Jr. are on trial for a second time, four months after a jury couldn't reach a unanimous verdict while acquitting two other men. The jury will hear com
Ninety-year-old David George Bryant moved into Drumlin Hills in the Town of Bridgewater, N.S., nearly a decade ago because his memory was failing. He and his wife would burn their dinners after forgetting them on the stove. So Bryant chose an assisted-living suite at Drumlin Hills while his wife moved into a nearby long-term care home. This way, he could visit her three times a week and still have food and housekeeping services in his apartment. Now Bryant, along with others in assisted-living a

WARSAW, Poland (AP) — Poland has deployed soldiers to help clean up the Oder River, which runs along the border with Germany, after 10 tons of dead fish surfaced from the waterway in what one official described as an “ecological catastrophe.” An association of fishers in Zielona Gora, a city in Western Poland, said Friday that it was suspending fishing in the river due to still-unconfirmed reports in the German media saying the river could be contaminated with mercury. Investigations are underwa
A 19-year-old international student drowned at a lake in Antigonish County, N.S., during a recent kayaking trip. RCMP Cpl. Chris Marshall said in an interview Mounties received a request for assistance on Monday afternoon for a person that had gone under the water of Lochaber Lake in North Lochaber and never resurfaced. Marshall said when authorities got to the scene, they learned the student had been kayaking with a 27-year-old man. Once the pair returned to the dock after kayaking, the older m
Six years after Ontario ombudsman Paul Dube recommended a standardized, mandatory de-escalation training for police across the province, Ontario is no closer to making it happen, he said on Wednesday. "Progress has been painfully slow," Dube said at a news conference introducing his annual report, which outlines trends and investigations his office handled between April 1, 2021 and March 31, 2022. Mandatory de-escalation training is just one of the recommendations Dube made in a 2016 report issu
OTTAWA — Canadian aid agencies are warning that the world food crisis, made worse by the war in Ukraine, is leading to a rise in underage girls being forced into marriage. Plan International Canada says it has seen a worrying increase in the number of teenage girls in the developing world being forced into marriage because their families cannot afford to feed them. The agency says 12 million girls under the age of 18 become child brides each year, forcing them to abandon school while putting the
Dozens gathered at the Whitehorse fish ladder on Wednesday for "salmon appreciation night," but the mood was dampened this year by staggeringly low numbers of chinook salmon. Only 10 salmon had passed through the fish ladder, which bypasses the Whitehorse Rapids Dam on the Yukon River, said Amy Jacobsen, fish ladder supervisor. By Thursday, the number was up to 13. Last year, there were 274 salmon, which is lower than the annual average of 1,000, she said. Numbers typically peak in mid-August, a
After spending the night on the floor of Toronto's Pearson International Airport, Silvino Braga says he and his fellow Winnipeg-bound passengers were shocked to hear how Air Canada planned to fly them home. Braga says airline staff announced they would be cancelling a flight to Vancouver and redirecting it to Winnipeg instead. But he says the Vancouver-bound passengers were given a different story — Air Canada gate staff told them their flight was being cancelled due to a safety issue. "[The Win

SYDNEY (AP) — A second Australian state on Thursday banned public displays of Nazi symbols. New South Wales, the nation’s most populous state, followed Victoria, the second most populous, which banned the public display of Nazi swastikas in June. The law was passed with the unanimous support of the state parliament’s upper chamber. The lower chamber passed the bill on Tuesday. Queensland and Tasmania states have foreshadowed similar laws, which would mean half of Australia’s eight states and ter
WASHINGTON (AP) — A flagship Democratic economic bill perched on the edge of House passage Friday, placing President Joe Biden on the brink of a back-from-the-dead triumph on his climate, health and tax goals that could energize his party ahead of November’s elections. Democrats were poised to muscle the measure through the narrowly divided House Friday over solid Republican opposition. They employed similar party unity and Vice President Kamala Harris' tie-breaking vote Sunday to power the meas
It's an eyebrow-raising statistic: Essex County OPP says there's a 63 per cent increase in vehicle thefts compared to this time last year. And often, it involves people either leaving their keys or key fobs unattended in their vehicles. Const. Steven Duguay says organized crime is often tied to vehicle thefts. But outside of that, he says, they're typically "crimes of opportunity." "You'll have people walking through neighbourhoods at night and checking door handles on cars, looking for loose ch
