Five people were treated in hospital for stab wounds in Cranbrook, B.C., after a fight broke out between two rival biker gangs from Alberta, police say. Cranbrook RCMP responded to a report of multiple people fighting at a gas station on Cranbrook Street North at 7 p.m. Friday. Police separated the two groups, RCMP said in a release, and determined they were rival motorcycle gangs from Alberta who were passing through the B.C. city. Shortly after the fight, officers were called to the local hosp
Canada's vaccine campaign has been crushing it lately, with an impressive 80 per cent of eligible Canadians having had at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. That statistic distracts from a troubling fact, however: more than six million Canadians still haven't had a shot, just as experts are warning we need more coverage to beat back a possible surge of cases in the fall. The first-dose vaccination campaign now seems to be grinding to a halt, with fewer than 50,000 people getting a vaccine eac
U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin said on Saturday that the Afghan security forces' first job was to make sure they could slow the Taliban's momentum before attempting to retake territory, as Afghan forces plan to consolidate forces around strategically important parts of the country. Reuters reported that Afghanistan's military is overhauling its war strategy against the Taliban to concentrate forces around the most critical areas like Kabul and other cities, border crossings and vital infrastructure. "They are consolidating their forces around the key population centers," Austin told reporters during a visit to Alaska.
The remains of an Alberta man missing since June have been found near Crowsnest Pass, police say. RCMP in Crowsnest Pass — 165 kilometres southwest of Calgary — received a report from Alberta Fish and Wildlife on July 20 about possible human remains in a rural area. The Alberta RCMP major crimes and forensics teams went to the scene and identified the remains as Lane Tail Feathers, a 35-year-old man from Fort MacLeod, Alta., who was reported missing by his family on June 20. Tail Feathers had be
BLY, Ore. (AP) — Out-of-state crews headed to Montana Saturday to battle a blaze that injured five firefighters as the U.S. West struggled with a series of fires that have ravaged rural lands and destroyed homes. Progress was being made on the nation's largest blaze, the Bootleg Fire in Oregon, but less than half of it was contained, fire officials said. The growth of the sprawling fire had slowed, but increased fire activity was expected Saturday, and thousands of homes remained threatened on i
Private firefighting companies from Alberta say they're anxious to deploy to B.C. to help control wildfires, but despite repeated calls to officials, they haven't heard back. Hundreds of wildfires are burning in the province, and thousands of residents have been put on evacuation orders and alerts as fires move closer to homes and communities. Last week Thompson Nicola Regional District chair Ken Gillis told CBC that a shortage of security staff and the need for more support at emergency operati
A new Ipsos poll for Global News, ahead of a potential federal election later this summer, finds the Liberals' lead over the Conservatives is narrowing. But as David Akin explains, the Tories are still in trouble, as their vital support in Western Canada sees a sharp decline from last election.
Concerns around mixing COVID-19 vaccine doses have started to arise locally after various jurisdictions have begun to label mixed-dose recipients as not fully immunized. “In Canada, combining vaccines is allowed. However, in certain other jurisdictions, it's not,” said Dr. Ian Arra, medical officer of health for the Grey Bruce Health Unit (GBHU). “So, if people don't have two matching doses of Pfizer or two doses of Moderna, they will not be considered by that jurisdiction as fully immunized.” D
MONTREAL — This year, Dany Baillargeon is committing what he describes as "horticultural disobedience" by letting his front yard grow naturally — despite the risk of running afoul of local bylaws. The Sherbrooke, Que., resident describes his lawn as "beautiful chaos." Its filled with plants such as wildflowers, clover and long grasses, and it is regularly visited by butterflies, bees and birds. "I let nature take the space that it deserves," he said in a recent interview. Ecologists say natural
BUDAPEST, Hungary (AP) — Rising anger over the policies of Hungary's right-wing government filled the streets of the country's capital on Saturday as thousands of LGBT supporters marched in the annual Budapest Pride parade. March organizers expected record crowds at the event, and called on participants to express their opposition to recent steps by populist Prime Minister Viktor Orban's government that critics say stigmatize sexual minorities in the Central European country. Budapest Pride spok
MANAGUA, Nicaragua (AP) — Nicaraguan police placed under house arrest a seventh presidential contender on Saturday, meaning that almost all of those who could have challenged President Daniel Ortega in the Nov. 7 elections have now been detained. Opposition leader Noel Vidaurre was placed under police custody at his home on Saturday, as was political commentator Jaime Arellano. Arellano had been called in for questioning regarding a commentary he wrote criticizing an Ortega speech. Vidaurre was
WARNING: This story contains distressing details. Cowessess First Nation received $10,000 in donations from a group in Regina this week, to help in their search for unmarked graves on the site of a former residential school in Saskatchewan. The donations were fundraised by the Jaleta Pacers Running Club in Regina and presented to Cowessess First Nation Chief Cadmus Delorme on Wednesday.

MELBOURNE (Reuters) -Australia's New South Wales logged its second-highest daily increase of the year in locally acquired COVID-19 cases on Sunday amid fears of a wave of new infections after thousands of people joined an anti-lockdown protest. There were 141 COVID-19 cases reported, down from 163 a day earlier. Under fire for a slow vaccine rollout, Prime Minister Scott Morrison said more vaccine supply was not going to ensure New South Wales gets out of lockdown, but what was needed was an effective, properly enforced lockdown.
A life-long gardener in a small Lower North Shore village in Quebec is growing cabbage, turnips and bunches of kale in greenhouses he built himself, to feed the seniors in his community. Edward Griffin, 82, and his wife cook and deliver about 70 meals for seniors in the community of St. Paul's River every Thursday. "After we retire, we need to do something," Griffin said of his team of volunteer gardeners. "It's great, old people get into it, and once you get into it, it's amazing," he said. Gri
MEXICO CITY (AP) — President Andrés Manuel López Obrador said Saturday that Cuba is an “example of resistance,” and proposed the entire country should be declared a World Heritage site. While much of Cuba seems stuck technologically in the middle of the last century, López Obrador did not appear to be speaking ironically when he proposed the world heritage designation, which is usually used by the United Nations to honor historical sites. The Mexican leader praised Cuba's ability to stand up to
The landmark ruling could have long-term implications for how a national security law that China imposed on its freest city a year ago against secession, terrorism, subversion and collusion with foreign forces reshapes its common law traditions, some legal scholars say. Activists say a ruling to outlaw the slogan will tighten limits on free speech. The slogan was chanted during pro-democracy protests, posted online, scrawled on walls and printed on everything from pamphlets, books, stickers and T-shirts to coffee mugs.
A new pirate crew has invaded Newfoundland and Labrador, but, thankfully, this one is not likely to pillage or plunder. The Raiders of the Avalon Pirate Crew is a collective of more than 160 pirate impersonators attending events across the province. "We have a wide range of members in the group," said Rod Hand (also known as "Captain Flint Locke"), the group's founder, in an interview with CBC Radio's On The Go. "Law enforcement, lawyers, artists, you name it. It's all in there. It's almost like
ZAGREB, Croatia (AP) — A bus swerved off a highway and crashed in Croatia early Sunday after the driver apparently fell asleep, killing 10 people and injuring at least 44 others — some of them seriously, authorities said. The crash happened at around 6 a.m. (0400 GMT; 12 a.m. EDT) near the town of Slavonski Brod on the highway between the capital, Zagreb, and the Serbian border. Authorities said after an investigation that the driver of the bus had been arrested after he apparently lost control
PHOENIX (AP) — In mid-May, partisan investigators hired by Arizona state lawmakers backed off their allegation that the state's most populous county had destroyed its 2020 election database. Confronted with proof that the data still existed, they admitted everything was there. Two months later, the tale lives on. At an event Saturday, former President Donald Trump presented the debunked allegation as a key piece of evidence that the state's electoral votes were stolen from him in 2020. It was on
Many advocates say the display of force by police during the encampment evictions at Lamport Stadium Park this week was completely unnecessary this week. However, the city mayor stands by the actions of officers. A group of city councillors has written an open letter begging Mayor Tory to change his approach going forward. Katherine Ward reports.
