Police were called to the 1500 block of 35 Street S.E. at about 10 p.m. Friday for a call about an armed man acting erratically. The Calgary police force says their officers found the suspect soon after arriving at the scene, but say "rapidly changing dynamics" resulted in one of the officers discharging their weapon. The man was taken to hosp
LONDON (AP) — New Liverpool signing Darwin Nunez came off the bench to score one goal and set up another Saturday as the Reds salvaged a 2-2 draw at promoted Fulham in the opening round of the Premier League. Aleksandar Mitrovic put Fulham ahead twice at Craven Cottage as Marco Silva's team threatened a major upset, but Nunez showed just why Liverpool spent big to bring the Uruguay forward in from Benfica this offseason. Nunez first met a low cross from Mohamed Salah with a deft backheel flick i
Canada's Ministry of Finance says it's aiming to make everyone pay "their fair share of tax" but is not committing to an elevated tax on energy companies who are reporting sizeable windfalls while consumers feel pinched at the gas pumps. The ministry's statement comes on the heels of United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres sharply criticizing the world's energy companies for making a profit at the expense of the poor. On Wednesday, Guterres said the world's top energy companies made $1
When they took to the field to face the Germans in the Euro Cup final on Sunday, England's national women's soccer team didn't just have the support of the country, they had the support of specially designed sports bras chosen in consultation with scientists. It perhaps would have remained a hidden secret weapon but for Chloe Kelly's now-iconic bra-baring celebration after scoring the game-winning goal, which prompted a national conversation in the papers and the airwaves and a massive sales bum
A look at what’s happening in European soccer on Sunday: ENGLAND Striker Erling Haaland is set to make his Premier League debut for Manchester City at West Ham.

A sculptor has been working in the intense summer heat to restore a statue in Summerside, P.E.I., that's withstood the elements for 100 years. The monument honouring 220 soldiers from Prince County who died in the First World War has been in the Veteran's Memorial Park just behind Summerside city hall since 1922. To commemorate the statue's 100th anniversary, the city has commissioned sculptor Brett Davis to freshen it up. Davis was in charge of the restoration of the Charlottetown cenotaph 20 y
LONDON (AP) — Erik ten Hag pleaded for time after starting his Manchester United reign with a disappointing loss. Erling Haaland didn't need much time at all to show what kind of impact he will have at Manchester City. The two biggest offseason arrivals in Manchester had starkly different starts to the Premier League season on Sunday. Ten Hag looked grim-faced on the sideline as the Dutch coach watched United slump to a 2-1 loss to Brighton at Old Trafford, with his side being outplayed in the f

The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) says no one has claimed a $55 million Lotto Max prize, adding the ticket was sold somewhere in Toronto. The jackpot winning ticket was drawn on Friday, with no claimants. Another ticket, drawn June 28, with a jackpot prize of $70 million has also not been claimed, OLG says. That ticket was also sold in Toronto. Claimants have one year from the draw date to claim their prize. Pla
LEEDS, England (AP) — American midfielder Brenden Aaronson helped Leeds open the English Premier League with a 2-1 comeback win over Wolverhampton on Saturday. Aaronson, making his debut for Leeds after joining Jesse Marsch's team this offseason, looked poised to convert a cross from Patrick Bamford in the 74th minute after a run into the area, forcing defender Rayan Ait-Nouri to stick out a foot for an attempted clearance that ended up in his own net. The own goal completed a turnaround for Lee
Pride Montreal said the city’s iconic parade that closes the festival’s celebration of LGBTQ+ communities was cancelled on Sunday, citing security concerns stemming from a lack of volunteers for the event. But as Global News' Dan Spector reports, Mayor Plante said the city was not warned about the staffing shortage and said if it had been given a heads-up, maybe it could have come up with something.

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.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The administration of President Joe Biden on Saturday condemned Indiana's new ban on abortions, calling it another extreme attempt by Republicans to trample women's rights. Indiana on Friday became the first state in the nation to approve such legislation since the U.S. Supreme Court overturned a 1973 landmark case that had protected the right to abortion nationwide. “The Indiana Legislature took a devastating step as a result of the Supreme Court’s extreme decision to overtu
