WASHINGTON (AP) — The Treasury Department said Friday it was allowing American tech firms to expand their business in Iran, one of the most sanctioned countries in the world, to boost internet access for the Iranian people.

The morality police detained Amini last week, saying she didn’t properly c
BARCELONA, Spain (AP) — Borja Iglesias has been waiting for this moment for a very long time. The Real Betis striker hopes to make his international debut at age 29 when Spain hosts Switzerland in the Nations League on Saturday in Zaragoza. Iglesias may also get a second game to repay the confidence that coach Luis Enrique placed in him when Spain visits Portugal on Tuesday. That match could be a winner-take-all clash for a ticket to the finals. And if he impresses his coach, Iglesias could then

Kari Lake, the GOP candida

After a tornado ripped through Bruce Pit off-leash dog park in 2018 the woodland is lush with new growth, and it provides a good example of what derecho-ravaged forests on other National Capital Commission (NCC) land will likely look like in a few years. But not all of the work done in Bruce Pit these last four years, or in NCC-owned Pine Grove and Pinhey Forest after the derecho in May, are ecological best practices, according to an urban forestry expert with the University of British Columbia.

What Warren Maddox remembers most about Marilyn Louise Simms, or Mim as she was known, is just how much "she loved to laugh." Maddox, executive director of Fredericton Homeless Shelters, first met Mim 30 years ago in a local coffee shop. He came to know her as a "wonderful person with a huge heart." Simms was a teacher's assistant at Connaught Street School, Maddox said, and she also loved the arts. According to her obituary, she had worked as an administrative assistant in Ottawa at the Malaysi
Ottawa police say they are reviewing exactly what happened when a social media post about the murders of women this year was edited to remove the word "femicide." On Sept. 16, Ottawa police posted a bulletin about five recent homicides of women and how they shared similarities. "The women were all victims of femicide," the bulletin read. "In each case, men are facing charges." Then minutes later, the post was once again published on the force's social media feeds, but this time, the word "femici
A working definition of antisemitism has been adopted by the Alberta government. On Friday, the province adopted the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) definition of antisemitism, which states — in part — that Holocaust denial and Jewish conspiracy theories fall under the realm of antisemitism.

Powerful storm Fiona ripped into eastern Canada on Saturday with hurricane-force winds, forcing evacuations, knocking down trees and powerlines, and reducing many homes on the coast to "just a pile of rubble in the ocean." The U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) said the center of the storm, downgraded to Post-Tropical Cyclone Fiona, was now in the Gulf of St. Lawrence and losing some steam. The NHC canceled hurricane and tropical storm warnings for the region.

He's only been riding his motorcycle for a few months, but Marshall McNaughton has already seen how dangerous it can be. "A lot of people are distracted and are just trying to go to work," he says. "They're not thinking about the big picture. They just look at you as an object. When I'm going to work or just go for a little ride, you have to keep your head on a swivel because people are very dangerous." McNaughton has seen things that people do behind the wheel. "They're on their phones, changin
