EDMONTON — Alberta's New Democrat Opposition says a government review of the program that's supposed to ensure oilsands companies can clean up their mines was conducted too privately and should have been done in public. Environment critic Marlin Schmidt said Albertans now know even less than before the review of the Mine Financial Security Program began. "Given how much money is at stake and how important this sector is to our economy, the fact the public was completely shut out of this process
CALGARY — TotalEnergies EP Canada Ltd. says it is increasing its ownership in the Fort Hills oilsands project by acquiring part of Teck Resources Ltd.'s stake in the mine.

Crows have become a celebrated bird in Chatham-Kent, but in recent weeks an alarming amount of crow deaths has caught the attention of pathologists in southern Ontario. Brian Stevens, a veterinary pathologist with the Canadian Wildlife Health Cooperative, told CBC News his team hasn't received their full lab results yet but they believe the crows are likely dying from an avian reovirus. He said it's "a virus that attacks these crows, attacks their internal organs, especially their intestinal tra

Police body-camera footage shows David DePape wrest the tool from Paul Pelosi, 82, and lunge toward him with the weapon over his head. The blow to Pelosi occurs out of the camera's view and the officers — one of them cursing — rush into the house and one
TOMS RIVER, N.J. (AP) — In hindsight, it's clear that something was very wrong in this suburban town at the Jersey Shore, where many people worked at or lived near a chemical company that was flushing toxic waste into waterways and burying it in the ground. Men would come home from the plant, which made dyes and resins, and their perspiration would be the color of the dye with which they worked. Children swam in the local river, coming up for air in the midst of milky white froth that floated on
Matthew Cameron, a 33-year-old engineer from Kensington, P.E.I., embarked on his second Dry January this month. His last Dry January lasted well into the summer. "I started realizing I value mornings, especially on the weekends," said Cameron. "Saturday mornings you can get up at 7, 8, just have that coffee and enjoy a clear head. That's higher up on the value list than those 2 a.m. kind of nights." With more people talking about Dry January, and the increased availability of non-alcoholic bever

CAPE TOWN, South Africa (AP) — Germany apologized on Thursday for using a leopard emoji in a jibe at Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Twitter that ended up offending some Africans. The German foreign ministry poked fun at Russia's top diplomat during his tour of Africa when it tweeted that he wasn't there looking for leopards, but using the trip to try and justify Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine. The tweet, and the leopard emoji the foreign ministry used on its official account,
After providing extra scrutiny in an emergency meeting Friday, the transit commission voted overwhelmingly in favour of the city's plan to buy 350 electric buses over the next three years. Friday's meeting took place after city council voted Wednesday to further scrutinize the city's e-bus plan.

LONDON (AP) — A lawyer for Eva Green alleged Thursday that producers of a collapsed film tried to damage the French actress’ reputation by depicting her as a “diva.” The performer, who played Vesper Lynd in James Bond thriller “Casino Royale,” is suing producers for a $1 million fee she says she is owed for “A Patriot." Green, 42, was lined up to star in the sci-fi thriller alongside Charles Dance and Helen Hunt, and was also an executive producer on the project, which collapsed in late 2019. Pr

BENGALURU (Reuters) -Indian shares ended more than 1% lower to hit a three-month low on Friday as a short-seller attack on Adani Group companies triggered a selloff in its shares and of the banks, wiping off a combined $48 billion in the conglomerate's market value over two days. The Nifty 50 index was down 1.61% at 17,604.35 at close, while the S&P BSE Sensex fell 1.45% to 59,330.90, trimming some losses in the last few minutes of trading after having hit over 2% lower earlier in the session. The sell-off in equities was triggered by U.S. short-seller Hindenburg Research's report on Wednesday that flagged concerns about the Adani Group's debt levels and use of tax havens.
