The U.S. Border Patrol faces major challenges monitoring a vast expanse of windblown farmland along the Canada-U.S. border, near where an Indian family of four was found dead last week.

ROME (AP) — Italian lawmakers failed to agree again Tuesday in a vote selecting Italy's next president, as a consensus on who to support continued to elude party leaders. On Tuesday, 1,008 Grand Electors, most of them members of Parliament with some regional representatives, were eligible to vote, but that second round of balloting, like Monday's, produced no winner. Through Wednesday, a two-thirds majority of electors is needed to select a new head of state, a figure tasked with representing na

A local tour guide found the remains at Sulphur Mountain, just a few kilometres south of the townsite, on July 11, 1998, Banff RCMP said in a release on Tuesday. "To date, despite the on-going investigation spanning over 20 years, the remains have yet to be identified," police explained. DNA and dental records didn't

Edmonton will spend $14 million to build a new above-ground parking lot at the Orange Hub, city council decided Thursday, despite a push from some councillors to explore more development options at the site. The existing parking lot at the city-owned centre at 100th Avenue and 156st Street needs to be demolished or permanently closed this year because of structural issues, a city report shows. The above-ground parking lot will include 181 spaces for vehicles, bicycles and motorcycles in a three-

ROME (Reuters) -Italy's parliament failed to elect a new president on Thursday for a fourth day running, with the main political blocs floundering in their efforts to find a mutually acceptable candidate for the powerful role. Prime Minister Mario Draghi remains a contender for the job, but his prospects have faded this week, with many lawmakers clearly reluctant to back him, partly because they fear any change to the government could trigger an early election. Unlike in the United States or France, where presidents get elected in a popular vote, in Italy, some 1,009 parliamentarians and regional representatives pick the head of state in a secret ballot, which party leaders sometimes struggle to control.
As in-person instruction resumes this week at Newfoundland and Labrador schools, it's not just parents who have reservations; some students themselves are feeling anxious.
