Located between Deerfoot Trail and the Bow River, a short distance south of the Calf Robe Bridge, the city has owned the land for several decades. The city is interested in working
Will Towell is at an impasse: either live in a homeless shelter with cockroaches he hates or move back to a tent in the bush and deal with a bunch of other critters. What the 64-year-old Kingston, Ont., resident really needs is a wheelchair-accessible unit in social housing. But it could be years before a spot opens up and market rent for a decent apartment is far beyond what his monthly disability support cheque provides. While the thought of living outdoors tempts him, Towell decides to tough

His doctors probably don't agree but Pope Francis thinks a shot of tequila just might help his painful knee. While his popemobile stopped in St. Peter's Square at his last general audience, a group of Mexican seminarians shouted out to him, asking how his leg was doing.

Some Charlottetown residents upset about a new subdivision are appealing to city hall and the Island Regulatory Appeals Commission. About 150 residents have signed a petition asking the city to reconsider its approval of the new Hidden Valley subdivision being built next to their older neighbourhood, Highfield Heights.

KYIV, Ukraine (AP) — As she lay buried under the rubble, her legs broken and eyes blinded by blood and thick clouds of dust, all Inna Levchenko could hear was screams. It was 12:15 p.m. on March 3, and moments earlier a blast had pulverized the school where she’d taught for 30 years. Amid relentless bombing, she’d opened School 21 in Chernihiv as a shelter to frightened families.
