Families, Children and Social Development Minister Karina Gould said Thursday that new legislation aimed at enshrining the Trudeau government’s child-care program into federal law would prevent Conservatives from dismantling the system. She said it would require them to “publicly tell Canadians they do not believe in affordable child-care.”
OTTAWA — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says the federal government is going to work as constructively as possible with Alberta after lawmakers passed Premier Danielle Smith's controversial sovereignty act. The legislature passed the legislation overnight after stripping out a provision that would have granted the provincial cabinet extraordinary powers. Indigenous groups had called for the bill to be scrapped and the Opposition New Democrats described it as “a hot mess express.” Trudeau says the
FREDERICTON — New Brunswick's Court of Appeal has ruled that the August 2020 snap election call that won Premier Blaine Higgs a majority government was legal. In a decision released Thursday, the court dismissed advocacy group Democracy Watch’s argument that the premier’s early election call was illegal because of the province’s fixed-date election law. Writing for the three-judge panel, Justice Ernest Drapeau says there is no admissible evidence that the premier's decision to call a general ele
Families, Children and Social Development Minister Karina Gould unveiled new legislation on Thursday aimed at enshrining the Trudeau’s national child-care program in federal law. Gould said the new legislation would make it harder for future governments to undo the government’s $10-a-day child-care agreements with provinces and territories.

Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones on Wednesday said he has less than $12 million of the $1.5 billion he owes the families of Sandy Hook school shooting victims, but they immediately questioned the accuracy of his statements.

Jones said in a court filing that it would be "functionally impossible" for him to pay the defamation verdicts in full.
The RCMP has charged a CBC News journalist in P.E.I. with disobeying a court order, after an investigation into an alleged breach of a publication ban. The investigation related to the publication of a "news article," the P.E.I. RCMP said in a news release Wednesday, but did not specify where it was published, or in what form.

The coughing and hacking are coming from inside the house. The legislative assembly, to be specific. Reflecting the virus-wracked communities they represent, several MLAs were audibly coughing, clearing their throats and speaking with decidedly scratchy voices during Friday's sitting of the legislature. "If they're anything like the general population, we know there's been a serious uptick in the number of viruses," said Green MLA Megan Mitton. "For the last two and a half weeks, it's been very

WARNING: This story contains distressing details. A coroner's jury has reached its verdict in the death of a 17-year-old Cree teen in a group home in Abbotsford, B.C., recommending more family-based services for children in care and faster action when those children go missing.

Following a coroner's inquest, his death has been confirmed as a suicide

Former instructor Rod Cumberland's behaviour at two seminars on herbicides was part of the focus Thursday as a court continued to hear his wrongful dismissal lawsuit against the Maritime College of Forest Technology. The school's director, Tim Marshall, was questioned about how Cumberland's actions before and during the seminars held in January 2019 weighed on the decision to fire him five months later. The trial had already heard that a group called Forest Info hosted two seminars in Fredericto
DOHA, Qatar (AP) — Revitalized at the World Cup, Louis van Gaal might not be ready to call time on his coaching career just yet. The 71-year-old Van Gaal came out of retirement last year to take charge of the Netherlands for a third time and has led the team to the World Cup quarterfinals, displaying his usual brand of quirkiness off the field and tactical acumen in the dugout. Having to battle against an aggressive form of prostate cancer hasn't dampened the enthusiasm of one of soccer's most c
