It's been more than two weeks since wildfires forced hundreds of people from the Shoal Lake and Red Earth Cree Nations to evacuate their homes north of Hudson Bay, Sask. — and still, no official return date has been set. "They're very lonely," said Shoal Lake Chief Marcel Head in a virtual news conference Friday afternoon. "They want to return home, but we've been telling them that we wouldn't want to put a risk on their health." Environment Canada lifted all air quality advisories in the area F
TORONTO — Richie Laryea calls it "one of the biggest forms of disrespect." The Canadian wingback was referring to the act of spitting at someone, the way he was targeted by a Panama player late in Canada's 4-1 win in CONCACAF World Cup qualifying play Wednesday. Laryea stopped the game in the 89th minute while attempting to take a throw-in at centre field on the east side of BMO Field.

Quebec is giving early childhood educators in public daycares a raise, starting in mid-November, as daycare staff continue to strike and protest across the province amidst negotiations of a new contract. "We have to admit, the current salary isn't attracting new educators into the system," said Treasury Board President Sonia LeBel, "and it's not contributing to retaining them either."

The security guard told people they'd likely be waiting two, even three hours. But with a long-awaited trip to Mexico on the horizon -- his first overseas trip since the pandemic began -- he stuck it out.

For unexpected needs, such as medical expenses, he has had to borrow money from relatives. Somehow, the 44-year-old muddled through life, sustained by his love of teaching high school Arabic and the respect his job earned him in the community. But his fragile equilibrium has been upended by the government’s harsh trea
