The City of Gatineau has issued a preventative boil-water advisory for parts of the Aylmer sector after a mechanical malfunction at the drinking water plant caused the water system to depressurize.

The city says affected residents must boil water for one minute before drinking it until the advisory is lifted. After it's lifted,
TORONTO — It's that much harder for celebrities to escape the glare of the spotlight when social media has given them a direct line to the public's adoration — and acrimony. The online overexposure has driven some A-listers to go on social media hiatus or log off permanently in the name of preserving their mental health. "Spider-Man" star Tom Holland told his tens of millions of followers on Instagram last summer that reading about himself online is "very detrimental to my mental state." His onl
The U.S. plans to work closely with Israel's new government, Secretary of State Antony Blinken told a left-leaning Jewish group in Washington on Sunday, and continues to support a two-state solution to end the decades-long conflict with Palestinians. The U.S. administration expects "the new Israeli Government to continue to work with us to advance our shared values, just as we have previous governments," Blinken told the nonprofit J Street liberal advocacy group. "Security assistance to Israel is sacrosanct," Blinken said, noting the more than $3 billion the U.S. provides to Israel in foreign military funding.
AL KHOR, Qatar (AP) — As captain, Aliou Cisse led Senegal to victory over the defending World Cup champions and all the way to the quarterfinals, matching Africa's best run in its first appearance at the tournament. As coach, Cisse is finding the World Cup much, much tougher. The current African champions lost to England 3-0 on Sunday in a surprisingly lopsided result and were knocked out in the last 16. Senegal had arrived with high hopes of at least matching that quarterfinal run of two decade

Excitement was in the air in downtown St. John's on Sunday for the annual Christmas parade. Kids and parents lined the streets, some eagerly camped out in collapsible chairs hours ahead of time, reusable bags filled with donations for the food drive close at hand. "We're going to wait for the Santa parade," said Quinn Graham, one of the many children who arrived on the parade route early. "It's going to happen." A shopkeeper peeked out of his store and smiled at the gathering crowds, his ceramic

DOHA, Qatar (AP) — American success in the men's World Cup remains a dream. The U.S. team looked better this year, but the results were the same as in 2010 and 2014. The Americans were eliminated in the round of 16 following a 3-1 defeat to the Netherlands on Saturday. “We’ve shown that we can compete with top-tier teams and we just want to change the narrative because we think, obviously, over the past years we haven’t gotten enough respect for U.S. soccer and for the way that we play,” midfiel
In a high-ceilinged workshop, junior high students pivot a plywood bed frame through the doors of a gutted school bus. Inside, there's new flooring and near the back, the beginnings of a composting toilet. Eventually, the bus will have a deck, solar panels and even a wood burning stove. "Most shop classes just make a birdhouse or toolbox, and we're making a tiny home," said Grade 9 student Olivia Saruk. As students drill and hammer, teacher Robert Tymofichuk — also known as Mr. T — gives advice

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Board of Pharmacy on Monday sued a Moorhead-based manufacturer of THC-laced gummies, saying the company's candies contain far stronger doses of the chemical that gives marijuana its high than state law allows. The lawsuit alleges that Northland Vapor Co. and its stores in Moorhead and Bemidji are violating Minnesota's new law allowing low-potency edible and drinkable cannabinoids. Those products must not contain more than 5 milligrams of hemp-derived THC in a
