After a late start to the season, some sunflower growers on P.E.I. are optimistic about what lies ahead for the beloved flower. Crystal Burke-Cheverie, who helps run Fortune Bridge Farms in Souris, P.E.I., says dry weather over the last month was making it difficult for sunflowers to bloom. However, recent rain means flowers are now in bloom and the demand is high, Burke-Cheverie said. "They seem to be really popular all over the Island. Everyone you talk to likes sunflowers," she said.

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

More human remains were found in the same area where a hiker discovered skeletal remains Friday. On Friday evening, a hiker called police after he discovered human remains in the heavily wooded area between Lakewood Heights and Golden Grove Road. On Sunday, Saint John police, River Valley and York Sunbury ground search and rescue teams expanded the search area and found more human remains, said police spokesperson Sean Rocca. Rocca said it's not clear if the two sets of remains are related, but
Since July, Dmitry Vorobiova, 39, his partner Olena, 36, and their dog have been living with 64-year-old Michael Glover, a software engineer who had extra space in his six-bedroom house after his wife passed away. Strangers before, Glover and the Ukrainian couple have together built a quiet routine in the three-story house in his small town in eastern New Hampshire: Dmitry and Glover jog in the evenings and occasionally the two cook Glover grilled chicken for dinner. Glover's house - now a refuge for the couple, who fled their home in Kharkiv, Ukraine - is a part of a local "sponsor circle," a program that started last year to support evacuated Afghans following the U.S. military's chaotic withdrawal, that has recently expanded to help Ukrainians fleeing Russia's invasion of their country.

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.

For parents of transgender children, normal kids' activities — like going to summer camp — aren't so simple. Jan Gootjes, a New Brunswick mother of a transgender boy, knows this all too well. She regularly screens programs and activities to make sure they'll welcome him, will use his correct pronouns and provide the right accommodations. That's what she did one day in the summer of 2020, when her son asked if he could go to Caton's Island summer camp and stay in a cabin with his male friends. Bu
A lawyer for former U.S. President Donald Trump signed a statement in June that all classified files at his Florida estate had been returned. This week, over 25 boxes of documents — many top secret — were seized by the FBI, indicating that the Trump team was less than forthcoming about the sensitive material. As Jennifer Johnson reports, Americans are wondering if Trump will face any consequences, including criminal charges.
Quebec's auditor general says the province's public finances are in order ahead of the fall election, but she warns that nothing can be taken for granted for the years to come because of economic uncertainty. Guylaine Leclerc has concluded that the finance minister's forecasts for this fiscal year and the next two are "plausible," but she says that the situation could change due to rising inflation, the war in Ukraine and pandemic-related disruptions. Leclerc adds that a continued rise in inflat
WOLVERHAMPTON, England (AP) — Wolverhampton goalkeeper Jose Sa saved a late penalty by Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic as the teams played out a 0-0 draw in the Premier League at Molineux on Saturday. Mitrovic, who scored twice last weekend in Fulham’s opening-round 2-2 draw against Liverpool, was handed the chance to snatch all three points for the Londoners in the 81st minute. Referee John Brooks pointed to the spot following Rayan Ait-Nouri’s ill-timed challenge on Bobby Cordova-Reid, but
In 2016, Joshua Holden, an award-winning American puppeteer, created a special show to perform at the Puppets Up! festival in Almonte, Ont. He'd hoped to perform again, but the international festival that had been running since 2005 was discontinued after the 2016 edition due to a lack of funding and volunteers. However, Puppets Up! has returned this weekend — and Holden will be there once again. After performing across North America, Holden said he was happy to return to Almonte, a town about 5
BRIGHTON, England (AP) — Nick Pope conjured two fine saves and Kieran Trippier made a goal-line clearance as Newcastle's two England internationals helped the team grind out a 0-0 draw at Brighton in the Premier League on Saturday. Pope racked up a second straight clean sheet since joining Newcastle from relegated Burnley, thwarting both Adam Lallana and Solly March at the Amex Stadium. March thought he had scored with a low shot through a crowd of players in the first half, only for Trippier to
