KYIV, Ukraine (AP) — Russia was poised Wednesday to formally annex parts of Ukraine where occupied areas held a Kremlin-orchestrated “referendum” — denounced by Kyiv and the West as illegal and rigged — on living under Moscow’s rule. Armed troops had gone door-to-door with election officials to collect ballots in five days of voting. The results were widely ridiculed as implausible and characterized as a land grab by an increasingly cornered Russian leadership following embarrassing military los

Kevin Jewell considers it a miracle he didn't lose a cow after powerful winds from Fiona ripped open his barn and crumpled the steel frame. "It's unbelievable that could happen, in a barn that was full capacity," he said. Jewell's son went to check on the main barn at their family farm in Meadowbank, P.E.I., early Saturday morning. He called to say it had collapsed and was completely destroyed. "He said, 'Dad, she's gone,' and those were probably the most sickening words I've ever heard," Jewell
TORONTO — Ontario will need more than 138,000 new workers in the public sector, long-term care, home care and child care over the next five years and may need to increase wages to attract enough people, the province's financial watchdog says. The Financial Accountability Office released a report Wednesday on public sector compensation and said Ontario is already facing high vacancy rates in those sectors -- 8.5 per cent this year in nursing and residential care -- and will need to both address t

India is articulating its position against the Ukraine war more robustly to counter criticism that it is soft on Russia, but it still has not held Moscow responsible for the invasion and will not alter its policy on importing cheap Russian oil and coal. In their first in-person meeting since the Feb. 24 invasion, Prime Minister Narendra Modi told President Vladimir Putin earlier this month that "today's era is not an era of war" - the clearest position New Delhi has taken on the conflict. India's foreign minister followed up last week at the U.N. Security Council, describing the trajectory of the Ukraine war as "very concerning" and the risk of a nuclear escalation as of "particular anxiety".

CHANNEL-PORT AUX BASQUES, N.L. — Erica Ingram, a mother of three who has lived in Port aux Basques, N.L. her entire life, lost her home and just about everything in it when post-tropical storm Fiona hit the southwestern coast of the province. “I’ve been down to the site where the houses were twice, and it’s still not registering to me that it’s all just gone,” Ingram said in an interview. “There's nothing there. It's all just rocks. You can’t even tell there were homes there at all.” Ingram’s ho
