The city said in a news release it's been looking to replace the aging Ruth Inch Memorial Pool (RIMP) since November 2016. It said the facility has exceeded its life expectancy. "RIMP is no longer sufficient," the city said in the news release. "It is currently operating at full capacity, and
UNITED NATIONS (AP) — Who should represent Afghanistan at the United Nations this month? It's a complex question with plenty of political implications. The Taliban, the country's new rulers for a matter of weeks, are challenging the credentials of their country's former U.N. ambassador and want to speak at the General Assembly’s high-level meeting of world leaders this week, the international body says. The question now facing U.N. officials comes just over a month after the Taliban, ejected fro

"We have asked our team to get together right now to mak

Tadoussac residents and those wanting to visit the scenic region may have to wait longer than usual to take the ferry across from Baie-Sainte-Catherine. The Société des traversiers du Québec, the provincial ferry corporation, has reduced the frequency of crossings across the Saguenay river because of a shortage of deckhand workers. There are normally two ferries departing simultaneously every 20 minutes from 7:40 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. during weekdays. But starting today, both ships are in service fo

A Sackville-area mother who has been waiting for a COVID-19 test for her 10-year-old daughter for five days is questioning how many other people are waiting for an appointment and "spreading around" the virus while they wait. Sarah MacNeill said Layla, a Grade 5 student, has been isolating at home since last Wednesday night when she got sick. She had seven symptoms of COVID-19 — a fever, cough, sore throat, headache, diarrhea and muscle pains — so MacNeill requested a test on the province's webs
The Latest on the U.N. General Assembly: ___ The presidents of Argentina and Colombia warned the U.N. General Assembly that increasingly strapped emerging markets could default on their foreign debts, and called on multilateral lenders to push for changes that ease conditions. Argentina’s Alberto Fernández said in a video message there is clearly “risk of a generalized debacle of foreign debts for developing nations,” and said there should be a “reconfiguration of global financial architecture.”

SYDNEY/MELBOURNE (Reuters) -A magnitude 6.0 earthquake struck near Melbourne on Wednesday, Geoscience Australia said, one of the country's biggest quakes on record, causing damage to buildings in the country's second-largest city and sending tremors throughout neighbouring states. The quake's epicentre was near the rural town of Mansfield in the state of Victoria, about 200 km (124 miles) northeast of Melbourne, and was at a depth of 10 km (six miles). Images and video footage circulating on social media showed rubble blocking one of Melbourne's main streets, while people in northern parts of the city said on social media they had lost power and others said they were evacuated from buildings.

A nearly zero per cent rental availability rate in Nelson had troubled Jim Reimer for years. The pastor of Kootenay Christian Fellowship (KCF) watched the door slowly shut on available rental accommodations and affordability in Nelson for working class people as the housing market transitioned traditional rental units to short-term offerings over the last 10 years. But the seed of a solutiuon to the housing problem germinated when KCF started Our Daily Bread — providing high quality, nutritious
Canadians re-elected a Liberal minority government on Monday, and Yukoners voted in Liberal Brendan Hanley, who will be replacing an outgoing Liberal, as the next Yukon MP. After a 36-day election campaign that cost $600 million to hold, the final seat tally doesn't look very different from the composition of the House of Commons when it was dissolved in early August — prompting CBC Yukon panellists Rian Lougheed-Smith and Asad Chishti to question why a vote was called during a fourth wave of th
NEW YORK (AP) — Four members of Congress from New York demanded the release of inmates and closure of New York City's troubled Rikers Island jail complex after another inmate was reported dead at the facility. Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Jerry Nadler, Jamaal Bowman and Nydia Velázquez called conditions at the jail “deplorable and nothing short of a humanitarian crisis," in a letter Tuesday to New York Gov. Kathy Hochul and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio. The demand followed th
China Evergrande agreed to settle interest payments on a domestic bond on Wednesday, while the Chinese central bank injected cash into the banking system, soothing fears of imminent contagion from the debt-laden property developer. Evergrande, Asia's biggest junk bond issuer, is so entangled with China's broader economy that its fate has kept global stock and bond markets on tenterhooks as late debt payments could trigger so-called cross-defaults. Many financial institutions have exposure to Evergrande through direct loans and indirect holdings, while any defaults will also trigger sell-offs in the high-yield credit market.
