West Point First Nation Chief Kenneth Cayen said he's starting conversations about relocating the 88-member community he leads to a more suitable area after flooding in May worsened its already severe housing crisis. Cayen said the First Nation, which is located in Hay River, N.W.T., is "overcrowded" with 15 homes on just four lots of land and he's started talking to the municipality about the possibility of moving. He also plans to broach the subject with Crown-Indigenous and Northern Affairs C
BARCELONA, Spain (AP) — When Brazil great Ronaldo bought Spanish club Valladolid almost five years ago, the idea was to turn the modest side into a solid team in a glamorous top tier including his former clubs Real Madrid and Barcelona. The intention wasn't for Valladolid to play soccer in the second division — with less famous opponents like Ponferradina and Amorebieta — as happened after the northern Spain side was relegated at the end of the 2020-2021 campaign. On Sunday Valladolid can seal i
MOSCOW (AP) — The Russian navy on Saturday conducted another test of a prospective hypersonic missile, a demonstration of the military's long-range strike capability amid the fighting in Ukraine. The Defense Ministry said the Admiral Gorshkov frigate of the Northern Fleet in the White Sea launched the Zircon cruise missile in the Barents Sea, successfully hitting a practice target in the White Sea about 1,000 kilometers (540 nautical miles) away. The launch was the latest in a series of tests of

'We need to drastically change our approach to mental health,' former U.S. president says at NRA event.
PARIS (AP) — Sixty-three games. Four losses. Two trophies. And a whole lot of disappointment. That’s the scenario facing Liverpool’s players as they return home on Sunday from their painful Champions League final loss in Paris to a trophy parade through their city. They’ll smile on that bus. They’ll accept the cheers from their adoring fans. But deep down, there’ll be thoughts of what could have been. “Even if nobody on this planet would understand that we have a parade, we still will do it,” Kl
China's foreign minister signed a deal with Samoa on Saturday to strengthen diplomatic relations, while Australia's new leader said he had a "comprehensive plan" for the Pacific, as Beijing and Canberra continued rival campaigns to woo the region. China is building on a security pact it recently signed with Solomon Islands, which has alarmed the United States and its allies such as Australia as they fear a stepped-up military presence by Beijing.

Iran's state maritime body said on Saturday the crew of two Greek tankers seized by its Revolutionary Guards on Friday had not been detained, and were in good health and being cared for on board their vessels. Iranian forces seized two Greek tankers in the Gulf on Friday, shortly after Tehran warned it would take "punitive action" against Athens over the confiscation of Iranian oil by the United States from a tanker held off the Greek coast. "The crew of the two Greek tankers have not been arrested, and all crew members ... are in good health and are being protected, and provided with necessary services while on board, in accordance with international law," Iran's Ports and Maritime Organization said in a statement carried by state media.

HOUSTON (Reuters) -National Rifle Association members overwhelmingly supported longtime leader Wayne LaPierre with a vote of confidence on Saturday, even as the gun rights group struggles with allegations that millions of dollars were misspent. The NRA is holding its annual meeting in Houston, about 280 miles (450 km) east of the site of a mass shooting on Tuesday, when an 18-year-old man armed with an AR-15-style semiautomatic rifle killed 19 children and two teachers at a Texas elementary school. The vote of confidence came ahead of a vote by the NRA board on Monday on whether to renew LaPierre as executive vice president, which he is expected to win.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Adam Conover is certain that laughing and thinking at the same time is both possible and downright synergistic. He tested the approach in “Adam Ruins Everything,” in which he punctured conventional wisdom on matters ranging from charity to jaywalking. He's back with “The G Word" — that's “G” for government — a six-episode Netflix series now streaming that's aptly described as a comedy-documentary hybrid. A comic and writer from a family of scientists, Conover digs into how the
Saturday's funeral for 86-year-old Ruth Whitfield, the oldest and last of the victims of a gunman's racist attack on a Buffalo supermarket to be laid to rest, became a call for action and an emotional plea to end the hate and violence that has wracked the nation. (May 28)
Fort McMurray may be getting overnight child care, and business owners and parents say it could be a good move for the community, which has a high population of shift workers. The Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo approved a public hearing for a bylaw that would amend the land use bylaw related to child care facilities. Currently, under the definition of Child Care Facilities in the Child Care bylaw, child care centres are not allowed to offer overnight accommodation. The amended bylaw would
TORONTO — Two late goals by Alejandro Pozuelo gave Toronto FC a 3-2 victory over the Chicago Fire in MLS play Saturday, snapping TFC's six-game winless streak. Pozuelo had missed the last three games with a lower body injury but returned with a bang in an entertaining end-to-end contest before 25,906 at BMO Field. The winner came in the 78th minute with the Chicago defence stalled as Jayden Nelson fed Pozuelo, who curled a ball off the crossbar into the goal from the edge of the penalty box for
Vancouver resident Rory Richards, who began looking for daycare services for her twin daughters before they were born five years ago, says she has yet to find child care for her two girls — and told CBC she has paid upwards of $5,000 in daycare waitlist fees. "It's been a long and windy road in our search for child care," Richards told CBC News. She's among many parents and advocates speaking out about waitlist fees, which they describe as a barrier to finding affordable care. According to a 201

Pembina Trails School Division superintendent Ted Fransen said students involved in a community cleanup day at École South Pointe School were doing service education when they came across the body in a field across from the school.
