MONTREAL — Quebec Premier François Legault says his Immigration Minister Jean Boulet is no longer qualified for the position after recent comments emerged in which Boulet said the majority of immigrants "don't work." Campaigning for re-election, the Coalition Avenir Québec leader was confronted Wednesday with a statement Boulet made last week during a candidates debate.

Although advance voting officially got underway this past Monday in Quebec's Ungava riding, hundreds of Kuujjuaq residents still have not received their voter cards due to missing postal information. Some see this as a big hurdle to Inuit participating in the Oct. 3 provincial election. Many of the voter cards sent by mail to Kuujjuaq lacked a post office box number. That meant post office workers had to make a search in order to put each card into the correct post office box. That's a tedious j

It was a simple screen grab of a text message, posted to a popular Facebook group. "Legault was in Beauceville today. He went to a restaurant and everybody was booing and yelling at him!" the text said, in French. "He had to leave before eating." Shared more than a thousand times, with almost as many comments, the post had many applauding those at the restaurant, repeating the phrase "Dehors la CAQ," (out with the CAQ). Except it didn't happen. Coalition Avenir Québec leader François Legault was

ROME (AP) — Italians marched through Rome, Milan and other cities Wednesday to protect access to abortion, which many fear will be under threat by a far-right party expected to form the next government after leading in parliamentary elections.

The heat bears down on Mohammad Salimullah as he trudges through the makeshift camp in the southeast part of India's capital. It has been his family's home for 10 years, ever since they escaped a campaign of violence in Myanmar's Rakhine state. "We never imagined leaving our country and coming to India to live in these uncertain conditions," said Salimullah, 36. "In Myanmar, we were living in oppression. Here, you could say we are living a life of freedom — but look at our situation." The father
