OTTAWA — Canadians have chosen another minority Liberal government — almost identical to the one it replaced — to finish the fight against COVID-19 and rebuild the shattered economy. Precisely how stable a minority remains to be seen, as results were still trickling in and there were tight contests in dozens of ridings as the clock started running out on Monday night. There are also almost 800,000 mail-in ballots to be counted, starting Tuesday, which could yet change the preliminary results in

DALLAS (AP) — A San Antonio doctor who said he performed an abortion in defiance of a new Texas law all but dared supporters of the state's near-total ban on the procedure to try making an early example of him by filing a lawsuit — and by Monday, two people obliged.

TOKYO (AP) — Guinness World Records has certified two Japanese sisters as the world’s oldest living identical twins at 107, in an announcement Monday coinciding with Respect for the Aged Day, a national holiday in Japan.

Most of Quebec's 78 seats in the House of Commons will be held by incumbents after Monday's election, with the exception of a few new faces. Some races will remain too close to call until well into Tuesday as mail-in ballots are counted while others were a shoe-in for incumbents and party strongholds across the province. With the margins between candidates sometimes hovering in the dozens, it was clear by midnight that a full vote count would be needed to determine the winner. However, some got

OTTAWA — Monday's federal election put a damper on a traditional form of watching the returns with the COVID-19 pandemic limiting the number of viewing parties across the country. Large indoor gatherings were for the most part either less appealing, or off-limits, due to the virus and the higher-than-average number of mail-in ballots, which meant the final results might not be announced Monday night. Some organizations took their viewing parties online. A community centre in Calgary, for instanc
