It took Ottawa jazz singer Kellylee Evans years to admit to herself that she might need a little extra help after being struck by lightning a decade ago and then suffering a bad concussion just two years later. But now that she's allowed an almost 30-kilogram mobility scooter nicknamed "Sunny" to change her life for the better, she wants people to know she doesn't need anyone to feel sorry for her. "I felt ... a lot of shame, and embarrassment, having to admit that I needed help. But asking for

Toronto's police chief says the force is increasing its daily presence on city transit in light of recent violence in the system.

TORONTO — Sarah Del Seronde is a big believer in interrogating the word "legacy," particularly as it relates to her late husband, the filmmaker Jeff Barnaby. Seronde, who is also a filmmaker, said it feels strange to switch from being Barnaby's partner to talking about the impact of his work now that he's gone. “His work is still continuing, so I guess the word legacy feels finite," she said. Before his death in October, the 46-year-old had an outsized influence on Indigenous storytelling — and
TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) — The Biden administration is temporarily delaying stepped-up legal protections for two imperiled species following efforts by congressional Republicans to derail the actions.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Ratcheting up his criticism, Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin on Wednesday moved to delay new tax credits for electric vehicles, a key feature of President Joe Biden's landmark climate law.

The climate law, officially known as the Inflation Reduction Act, “is first and foremost an en
NEW YORK (AP) — The U.S. men's national team shakeup that began after a public spat erupted between two well-known American soccer families accelerated Thursday when sporting director Earnie Stewart announced he is quitting the U.S. Soccer Federation to join PSV Eindhoven. Men's general manager Brian McBride also is resigning, leaving coach Gregg Berhalter in limbo following the expiration of his contract on Dec. 31. Berhalter is under investigation for a 1991 domestic violence incident and Anth
The contribution of modern tanks to Ukraine's fight against Russia can help Ukraine punch through enemy lines, says Prof. Walter Dorn, a defence studies expert at the Royal Military College of Canada. But the contributions also put pressure on Canada to 'pony up' with its Leopard 2 tanks, says Dorn.

OTTAWA — Key players and close watchers of Rogers Communications Inc.'s proposed takeover of Shaw Communications Inc. shared their views on the $26-billion deal at a House of Commons committee Wednesday as Industry Minister François-Philippe Champagne deliberates on its fate.

Hindenburg Research said it held short positions in India's Adani Group, accusing the conglomerate of improper use of offshore tax havens and flagging concerns about high debt that eroded $11 billion in investor wealth on Wednesday. The group, which is led by Gautam Adani, the world's third richest person according to Forbes, dismissed the U.S. short-seller's claims as baseless, saying it was timed to damage its reputation ahead of a large share offering. The group's flagship firm, Adani Enterprises, will on Jan. 27 launch the country's biggest public secondary share offering, aiming to raise $2.5 billion to fund capital expenditure and pay off some debt.
VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Francis says he hasn’t considered issuing norms to regulate future papal resignations and plans to continue for as long as he can as bishop of Rome, despite a wave of criticism from some top-ranking conservative cardinals and bishops about his papal priorities. In his first interview since the Dec. 31 death of retired Pope Benedict XVI, Francis addressed his critics, his health and the next phase of his pontificate, which marks its 10th anniversary in March without Bened

WASHINGTON (AP) — On a winter's day in 1984, a briefcase stuffed with classified government documents showed up in a building in Pittsburgh, borne by someone who most certainly wasn't supposed to have them. That someone was 13-year-old Kristin Preble. She took the papers to school as a show-and-tell project for her eighth grade class. Her dad had found them in his Cleveland hotel room several years earlier and taken them home as a souvenir. As a different sort of show and tell unfolds in Washing

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Republican state lawmakers on Thursday filed an appeal with the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, hoping to preserve elements of their impeachment case against an elected progressive Philadelphia prosecutor.
