MONTREAL — Thousands of Quebecers were still in the dark on Tuesday after a powerful weekend storm that hit Quebec and Ontario killed at least 10 people and left a trail of damage across large swaths of both provinces. In Quebec, the province's hydro utility said about 120,000 customers were still without power on Tuesday.

A rematch three years in the making is the most important game of the season so far for the Vancouver Whitecaps, says head coach Vanni Sartini. The club knows it must beat Cavalry FC in the second round of the Canadian Championship on Wednesday in order to advance — and Vancouver's record against the Canadian Premier League side isn't exactly positive. The 'Caps were heavily favoured when they came up against Cavalry in the 2019 tournament. But Calgary stunned with a 2-1 aggregate win, ousting t

OTTAWA — Defence Minister Anita Anand says Canada is shipping 20,000 rounds of artillery ammunition to Ukraine. Anand says the ammunition is "exactly" what Ukraine's government asked for from its allies. She says the rounds are the standard NATO artillery calibre and compatible with the artillery guns provided to Ukraine by Canada and other countries. In April, Canada shipped four M777 howitzers to Ukraine, part of more than $130 million in military equipment Canada has donated since Russia laun

KUUJJUAQ, Que. — Daniel Gabois would usually be out hunting this time of year. Flocks of Canada geese have started to appear overhead in their V-formations, returning to nesting grounds in the northern Quebec region of Nunavik. That's the signal for him and many others in his hometown of Kuujjuaq to head out on the land. But the electrician and entrepreneur is working 10- to 12-hour days, trying to finish more work than he can keep up with as companies and governments scramble to fill a critical

Extensive storm clean-up continues, with at least ten fatalities reported after Saturday's devastating storms.
The high inflation rate on P.E.I. is putting some businesses in the position of paying more to operate or charging more for services. In April, the inflation rate on P.E.I. was 8.9 per cent, the highest of any jurisdiction in the country. It means higher costs for items that need to be shipped in, such as baskets for plants at VK Greenhouses in Charlottetown. The greenhouse has had to increase the price of everything by at least 10 per cent to make a profit, said Peter Meijer, operations manager

Police have identified a suspect in an alleged break and enter and subsequent sexual assault that occurred in Surrey, B.C., over the weekend. Surrey RCMP say they are searching for Matthew Christopher Hamm, 43, and are requesting the public's assistance to help find him.

The woman who lived in the home told police she had been sexually assaulted by a man she did n
Imagine seeing one of the biggest back yard birds drinking water out of the pond right outside your window. This enormous fellow came to sip water, peck curiously at the cedar deck and then feed at the suet column. Pileated woodpeckers are the largest species of woodpecker in North America. They would be second to the ivory billed woodpecker, although sadly, it is now believed to be extinct. The pileated is a giant bird that feeds on insects burrowed into rotting trees and logs. It uses its keen sense of hearing to detect grubs and beets beneath the wood. Once it locates its prey, it hammers with its powerful beak to uncover and devour the insects. They actually play a vital role in the health of many forests, keeping the population of destructive insects in check. A pileated woodpecker can be heard for miles as it beats loudly on hollow trees to announce its presence and dominance to other woodpeckers. They are territorial and this display is meant to keep rivals from entering their feeding or breeding area. A pileated woodpecker grows to an incredible 49cm in height (19inches). It is a heavy bird, weighing up to 300g (2/3 lb). They are also known to eat fruits and berries, including the berries of the poison ivy plant. They will also eat ants in large quantities when the colonies are found in dead trees. The nest of the pileated is constructed by hammering out large holes in dead trees. The male makes a nest and this attracts a female where they will work together to raise their young. The nests are not used twice and the large cavities often become a shelter for other birds and woodland animals, such as owls. This also plays a beneficial role in the health of forests. Pileated woodpeckers are a welcome sight at back yard bird feeders such as this one. They love suet cakes that are filled with nuts and seeds. Their large size and bright plumage make them a delightful sight for bird enthusiasts and photographers. This videographer placed a GoPro camera on a pole right beside the suet feeder in his back yard and he was fortunate enough to capture this large male paying a visit. Providing food for local birds can make a great difference to their survival, especially when harsh conditions make it more difficult to find food.

DAVOS, Switzerland (AP) — A veteran Russian diplomat to the U.N. Office at Geneva says he handed in his resignation before sending out a scathing letter to foreign colleagues inveighing against the “aggressive war unleashed” by Russian President Vladimir Putin in Ukraine. Boris Bondarev, 41, confirmed his resignation in a letter delivered Monday morning after a diplomatic official passed on his English-language statement to The Associated Press. “For twenty years of my diplomatic career I have s
