Martine Corbeil has lived in her Montreal home since 1997 and has always parked her car in the driveway out front. But last August, she got a letter from the borough of Mercier-Hochelaga-Maisonneuve. "It said that we were not allowed to park in front of our house according to this bylaw," she said. That will certainly complicate things for her — and not just because she has to carry her groceries from a curbside spot. She has an electric car and there's a charging station attached to her house s
Calgary-based filmmakers Wendy Tilby and Amanda Forbis say their best animated short Oscar nomination for "The Flying Sailor" is like a cherry on top of a sundae for the film that was years in the making. The film centres on a seaman who was blasted two kilometres into the air and survived after two ships collided in the Halifax harbour during the First World War.
66 more potential burial sites have been discovered on the grounds of St. Joseph's Mission, a former residential school in Williams Lake. Chief Willie Sellers of the Williams Lake First Nation talks to Global News Morning about the latest findings, and the next steps in the investigation.
After a long-running P.E.I. travel health clinic closed over the summer, the people behind a new one now operating in Charlottetown are hoping to fill the gap it left behind. Before he left his practice in July, Dr. Ray Cooke had run a travel vaccination service at the Polyclinic in Charlottetown for several years. It and the Murphy's Pharmacy travel health clinic in Parkdale were the only two locations in the province designated as yellow fever vaccination centres. Amy Bulnes, a registered nurs

More than 100 employees of seven private ambulance services are back to work, but their labour dispute is far from over. The paramedics and emergency medical responders now have a piece of legislation calling them essential workers, but they can return to the picket line again, as soon as they reach an agreement with their employer on how many people are needed to maintain a minimum standard. Whether they reach a satisfactory deal or head back to the picket line, Emily White won't stay long. "A
OTTAWA — Pressure is building for Canada to send some of its Leopard 2 battle tanks to Ukraine after Germany decided to provide the heavy weapons and allow other countries to do the same. German Chancellor Olaf Scholz announced his government's decision on Wednesday following weeks of hesitation that created impatience among his country's allies, saying Berlin will send 14 of its Leopard 2A6 tanks. Scholz’s announcement came shortly before U.S. President Joe Biden revealed plans to send 31 M1 Ab
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The California mushroom farm where four people were killed Monday had another shooting last July where one manager attempted to kill another. Court documents and a case summary from the San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office show California Terra Garden manager Martin Medina was charged with attempted murder after he threatened to kill the other manager and then fired a gun into the man’s trailer. The bullet went through the trailer and into a neighboring one. No one wa
A new report says misinformation about COVID-19 contributed to more than 2,800 Canadian deaths and at least $300 million in hospital and ICU visits. The Council of Canadian Academies says misinformation led to people not believing COVID-19 was real or was exaggerated, fostering vaccine hesitancy. The study suggests the false beliefs that COVID-19 was a "hoax or exaggerated," led to at least 2.3 million people delaying or refusing to get the vaccine between March and November of 2021. The report
The University of Windsor has partnered with Telus to create a $5-million commercial lab at the school's campus to research 5G technology.

One of the people who participated in what a judge has described as a "cruel and merciless" killing of a Calgary Uber driver has been handed an eight-year sentence. Andrew Christal, 35, was tried on a charge of first-degree murder in the death of Kasif Hirani, 30, who was fatally stabbed in December 2019. Last year, a jury found him guilty of the lesser offence of manslaughter. On Thursday, Court of King's Bench Justice John McCarthy found Christal "acted in concert" with the other two killers,
CANBERRA, Australia (AP) — Australians expect to vote this year in a referendum that would enshrine in the nation’s constitution a mechanism for Indigenous people to advise Parliament on policies that effect their lives known as the Voice. Proponents say embedding the Voice in the constitution would recognize the special place that Indigenous people have in Australian history while giving them input in government policies. Skeptics and opponents say Australians need more details before they vote
ISLAMABAD/SINGAPORE (Reuters) -Pakistan's generators produced more power than was required on Monday, causing voltage fluctuations that culminated in a system collapse that plunged 220 million people into darkness, an internal government document reviewed by Reuters showed. Complete grid failures are rare, and operators of modern grids count local shocks from integration of renewable energy as their primary challenge. The grid's failure plunged 220 million people into darkness for a whole day and disrupted commercial activity as outages also hit internet and mobile services.
They say you have to crack a few eggs to make an omelette, but for Corrie and Jason Adamson, owners of Simpson Orchards in Leamington, Ont., a huge egg laid by one of their chickens was more than enough. The egg was almost the size of an orange — Jason said it was bigger than any egg he'd ever seen. The Adamsons said their store was slow from the snow storm on Wednesday and with their family and a few customers around, they decided to live stream themselves cracking the egg they found two weeks
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. Critics of the deal, including academics and competitors, used the industry and technology meeting to argue that Champagne should either block the deal entirely or impose stricter conditions on it, while also raising concer
LONDON (AP) — Tottenham strengthened its attacking options for the second half of the season by signing Dutch forward Arnaut Danjuma on loan from Villarreal on Wednesday. Danjuma joined Tottenham until the end of the season and will start his second stint in English soccer, having played for Bournemouth from 2019-21. He had been expected to join Everton and reportedly had a medical examination there before Tottenham made its move for a player who will provide competition for Son Heung-min, Dejan
SALEM, Ore. (AP) — A state lawmaker in Oregon is using thousands of pages of redacted documents he sought for more than a year to launch legislation demanding more accountability and oversight of a primate research facility with a long history of complaints. Incidents at the Oregon National Primate Research Center, associated with Oregon’s largest hospital, include one in which two monkeys died after being placed into a scalding cage-washing system. Other animals perished from neglect. Workers h

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Louisiana's prison system routinely holds people beyond their release dates, the U.S. Department of Justice said Wednesday in a report concluding that the state has failed for years to develop solutions to “systemic overdetentions” that violate inmates' rights and are costly to taxpayers. The federal department said the state could face a possible lawsuit in mid-March if it doesn't fix the problems, according to a letter to state officials. Corrections officials have been coop
Canfor has announced the permanent closure of its Chetwynd, B.C. operations, as well as a temporary closure of its Houston sawmill, creating further challenges for forestry industry workers.

The company said up to 490 employees would be affected
