AMMAN, Jordan (AP) — As a poorly paid public school teacher, Khaled Jaber always needed a side hustle, working as a private tutor and using his car as a taxi to help pay the bills. For unexpected needs, such as medical expenses, he has had to borrow money from relatives. Somehow, the 44-year-old muddled through life, sustained by his love of teaching high school Arabic and the respect his job earned him in the community. But his fragile equilibrium has been upended by the government’s harsh trea
Officials with the Nunavut capital say they suspect fuel got into the tank from outside the plant, but a treated reservoir downstream had fuel levels within limits. Long-term health effects are not a concern.
WASHINGTON (AP) — The fundraising committee aiming to help Democrats maintain control of the House said Thursday it raised $106.5 million through the end of last month, narrowly edging the $105 million its Republican counterpart announced collecting over the same period. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee said it had its best third quarter ever for an off-election year, taking in $38.5 million between July 1 and Sept. 30. Its latest haul included $14.5 million in September alone. Th
'We need the community to be whole when we're past the pandemic,' says Smithers, B.C., Mayor Gladys Atrill. She encourages people to be kind and keep the community functioning as a new series of COVID-19 restrictions takes effect.
OTTAWA — Pierce Schoel thought he might be able to avoid a long wait at the passport office in Kitchener, Ont. by going in the middle of the day. He was surprised to discover line-ups out the door. The security guard told people they'd likely be waiting two, even three hours. But with a long-awaited trip to Mexico on the horizon -- his first overseas trip since the pandemic began -- he stuck it out. "I've been waiting to travel for quite a long time," Shoel said after applying for his passport F

A 22-year-old man was killed in a crash on the Trans-Canada Highway on Wednesday, about 40 kilometres northwest of Whitbourne, N.L., near the Bellvue turnoff. It happened around 4:30 p.m., when the car he was driving crossed over to the westbound lane and hit an oncoming SUV. Police say the man wasn't wearing a seatbelt and died at the scene. Emergency crews took the two people in the SUV to the community health-care centre in Whitbourne with what police described as non-life-threatening injurie
The capital of Canada's Arctic territory has ordered its 7,000 residents not to drink the city's water due to suspected fuel contamination. Iqaluit, the capital of Canada's northernmost territory Nunavut, which borders Greenland, declared a state of emergency on Tuesday night, telling residents to stop using city water for drinking and cooking. Residents reported fuel odors in the water over the weekend, but the source was not clear.
BEIRUT (AP) — Heavy gunfire broke out Thursday in Beirut during a protest organized by the Hezbollah group against the judge leading the probe into last year’s blast in the city's port. At least six people were killed and dozens wounded in the most violent street fighting in the Lebanese capital in years. The exchanges of fire along a former front line from the 1975-90 civil war involved pistols, automatic rifles and rocket-propelled grenades, and were reminiscent of that conflict. Gunfire echoe
CALGARY — A Calgary city councillor who is running for re-election next week was represented by a lawyer at his first court date on charges of fraud and breach of trust. RCMP have said a "complex investigation" was done into the expenses of Ward 2 Coun. Joe Magliocca, after a city police probe found thousands in ineligible council expenditures. Magliocca, who did not appear in court, is facing one count each of breach of trust and fraud under $5,000. His case has been adjourned for three weeks w
Edmonton homicide detectives are investigating the disappearance of a woman who was reported missing in August but who hasn't been seen or heard from since July. Nicole Frenchman, 23, was reported missing on Aug. 10 but there was no indication at the time of foul play, the Edmonton Police Service said in a news release Friday. Investigators later learned that the last communication from Frenchman's phone was a full month earlier, in the early morning hours of July 10. On that date, she was seen
It appears that people with mixed COVID-19 vaccines will finally get the green light to travel south - once the U.S. border reopens to fully vaccinated Canadians next month. Richard Zussman reports.
The B.C. government has enacted changes to the B.C. Employment Standards Act, raising the general working age of youth in the province from 12 to 16, bringing the province in line with international child labour standards and other provinces in Canada. The changes, effective Friday, will provide better protections for youth, while also allowing regulators to define the types of employment and jobs appropriate for those under the age of 16, the province said in a statement. The amendments to the

WATFORD, England (AP) — With a deft touch, a roll of the ball with his studs, a dummy and then a sublime finish into the bottom corner, Mohamed Salah produced another goal-of-the-season contender to headline Liverpool’s 5-0 win at Watford in the Premier League on Saturday. On a tough day for Claudio Ranieri in his first match as Watford manager, Salah delivered almost a replica of his stunning individual goal against Manchester City before the international break — and overshadowed a hat trick s
Mayoral hopefuls Virginia Stone, Zane Novak and Jan Damery held a joint media conference at City Hall on Thursday to urge Calgarians to do their research ahead of Monday's election — and not to elect a current sitting council member. Some recent polling has put candidates Jyoti Gondek and Jeromy Farkas in a dead heat heading into Monday's municipal election, but they've long had an edge. A poll conducted exclusively for CBC Calgary toward the end of September had Gondek leading a crowded field a
Starting Monday, more businesses in Saskatchewan will require anyone 12 and older to provide their proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a recent negative test to enter the premises. Liquor manufacturers like breweries and distilleries that sell alcohol and most off sales attached to restaurants and taverns will be among the businesses affected, the province said in a news release Friday. Anyone planning to dine-in at a fast-food restaurant should also expect to show their immunization status or a ne
With the federal government's vaccine mandate for air travellers kicking in soon, chiefs in small Northwest Territories communities say they're waiting to hear about possible exceptions to the rules. By Oct. 30, most Canadians will need to be fully vaccinated if they're planning to hop on a plane. There will be a month of flexibility where people who are in the process of being vaccinated can show a valid COVID-19 molecular test, according to a recent Oct. 6 update from the federal government.

China's energy crisis deepened on Friday with coal prices hitting a record high as cold weather sweeps in and soaring gas prices prompting major energy companies to seek long-term deals with U.S. suppliers, sources told Reuters. Energy security has shot to the top of government agendas in Asia and Europe as shortages of coal and rocketing gas prices have triggered power outages and choked up factories supplying big name brands such as Apple, just as the global economy reawakens from coronavirus restrictions. China, the world's top exporter, has been particularly hard hit and major energy companies such as Sinopec Corp and China National Offshore Oil Company (CNOOC) are in advanced talks about long-term contracts with U.S. exporters of liquefied natural gas (LNG), sources told Reuters.
