TORONTO — Breanna Reid-Clarke has attended all her university classes over the last two years from her bedroom and it's taking a toll.

TORONTO — On a recent snowy afternoon in New York City, Samantha Bee is gleefully making her way to a cat café. It's a production day for her TBS late-night show "Full Frontal," and in this particular episode, she tackles how disinformation can spread through something as seemingly innocuous as the cute cat videos the internet lives for. In other words, it's a quintessential episode of the series, which began its seventh season Thursday. "I'm trying to find more entry points into serious materia
DOVER, Del. (AP) — A Delaware lawmaker who came under fire last year for using a racist and sexist slur to refer to sex workers was arrested on shoplifting charges Tuesday, just days after announcing that he was resigning for health reasons. Newark police said a warrant was issued Tuesday for Rep. Gerald Brady’s arrest on two counts of shoplifting, and that Brady, 65, turned himself in a few hours later. He was released on his own recognizance. House Democrats announced last Friday that Brady wa

La Coopérative d'intégration francophone de l'Île-du-Prince-Édouard, also known as the CIF, appeared before a legislative standing committee Tuesday.

When Alicia and Miranda Teasdale decided to move home from Alberta to Antigonish, N.S., they had one big priority: open a drug store that would make their community think differently about waste. The sisters just launched the Teasdale Apothecary, which offers reusable glass vials for prescriptions. While they're being used in some pharmacies in other parts of Canada, the Pharmacy Association of Nova Scotia believes the Teasdale Apothecary is the first to try the system in Nova Scotia.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Army Spc. Javzailia Pineiro joined New York’s National Guard in late 2019, and started work as a truck driver just as the pandemic was starting to hit. For months she drove around the state, spending long days delivering masks, water, food and other supplies. It was grueling work. Yet she has already signed up for four more years — taking advantage of a $10,000 reenlistment bonus and the opportunity to use her military benefit to go to college. Pineiro’s decision to stay on is

France's case against Ottawa academic Hassan Diab in connection with a bombing outside a Paris synagogue 40 years ago will go to trial in 2023 — more than five years after he was set free due to a lack of evidence. Last year, France's court of appeal overturned a lower court decision to release Diab and allow him to return to Canada. France's top court later rejected Diab's appeal and ordered him to stand trial. That trial is set to start on April 3, 2023. French authorities have not yet request
When Andrew Hunter thinks about the main subject of his book, he recalls having her in mind since the early 1990s. Through her story, he says, she has the ability to connect to people in Black communities grappling with the legacy of slavery. Of the stories in books and articles about people enslaved, her narrative offered a unique perspective. "I was thinking about Sophia for a long time," he said. Hunter is referring to Sophia Burthen Pooley, a enslaved woman once owned by Indigenous leader Jo
The man who confessed to killing a Calgary mother has now also been convicted of murdering the woman's toddler, a child he'd previously told the court he loved. On the first day of his October 2021 trial, Robert Leeming, 37, pleaded guilty to murdering girlfriend Jasmine Lovett but not guilty in the death of her daughter, 22-month-old Aliyah Sanderson. On Monday, Court of Queen's Bench Justice Keith Yamauchi convicted Leeming, finding he'd lied in his testimony. "Mr. Leeming is not a believable

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Pentagon ordered 8,500 troops on higher alert Monday to potentially deploy to Europe as part of a NATO “response force” amid growing concern that Russia could soon make a military move on Ukraine. President Joe Biden consulted with key European leaders, underscoring U.S. solidarity with allies there. Putting the U.S.-based troops on heightened alert for Europe suggested diminishing hope that Russian President Vladimir Putin will back away from what Biden himself has said lo

NEW YORK (AP) — In 2020, Bastille found themselves in a unique position. Coming out of their last album and into the pandemic, the English pop rock band not only had one album’s worth of songs, but two or three. So they enlisted the help of producer and OneRepublic front man Ryan Tedder to narrow down the tracks. The songs Tedder picked were futuristic leaning and a concept album began to take shape. With techno beats, ‘80s retro futuristic tones and sweeping production, Bastille’s 13-track “Giv

COVID-19 contributed to the biggest annual reduction in life expectancy on record in Canada in 2020, the first year of the pandemic, Statistics Canada said in preliminary findings released on Monday. While COVID was the third-leading cause of deaths in 2020, Statscan said the impact from the pandemic also likely contributed indirectly with a rise in deaths due to factors such as delayed medical procedures and increased drug-use. The findings were largely in line with an Oxford University study last year that said life expectancy in 2020 fell by more than six months annually in 22 out of the 29 countries the university looked at.
