ARLINGTON, TEXAS — Canada's run at the Gold Cup continues. And that can only bode well for the final round of World Cup qualifying starting this fall. Stephen Eustaquio set up one goal and scored the other Sunday to move the 70th-ranked Canadians into the semifinals of the CONCACAF championship with an impressive 2-0 win over No. 50 Costa Rica. Eustaquio put Junior Hoilett in alone for the first goal at the 18th-minute mark, then scored himself in the 68th minute as the Canadian men took control
MOSCOW (AP) — Russia marked the 325th anniversary of the founding of its navy with ship parades at major ports on Sunday. Russian President Vladimir Putin attended the main parade of more than 50 vessels in St. Petersburg, which included ships from the navies of Iran, Pakistan and India. The Iranian frigate Sahand, which sailed down the Neva River in the parade, and the sea-based vessel Makran attracted attention from naval observers due to their unusually long voyages to Russia. Parades also to
Top infectious disease official Anthony Fauci said on Sunday that Americans who are immune compromised may end up needing COVID-19 vaccine booster shots as the United States deals with increasing cases from the Delta variant of the coronavirus. "Those who are transplant patients, cancer chemotherapy, auto-immune diseases, that are on immunosuppressant regimens, those are the kind of individuals that if there's going to be a third booster, which might likely happen, would be among first the vulnerable," Fauci said during a CNN interview. He added health officials are also considering whether to revise mask guidance for vaccinated Americans saying it was "under active consideration."
A Moncton auction house has sold a Paragon teacup and saucer for the staggering price of $2,400. That's a record for Key Auctions. Auction house owner Jared Steeves said he knew the teacup was special — and worth a pretty penny — when he saw its heavy gold coating and large cabbage rose design while unpacking boxes from an estate pickup. "It was an exciting and unknown find at a local house in Moncton," Steeves told CBC's Shift. "It was unbeknownst to us that it was even in the estate. There had
Two young hockey players from the Ottawa area are heading to the big league after being selected in the NHL entry draft Friday. Mason McTavish of Carp, Ont., was selected third overall by the Anaheim Ducks, and defenceman Brandt Clarke of Nepean, Ont., was picked eighth overall by the Los Angeles Kings. "Obviously, I was super happy for myself, and … my family was super proud of me," McTavish said in a press conference following his selection Friday. "Right now I'm just enjoying the moment." McT
KABUL (Reuters) -The United States will to continue to carry out airstrikes to support Afghan forces facing attack from the insurgent Taliban, a regional U.S. commander said on Sunday as U.S. and other international forces have drawn down troops in Afghanistan. The Taliban has escalated its offensive in recent weeks, taking rural districts and surrounding provincial capitals, after U.S. President Joe Biden said in April U.S. troops would be withdrawn by September, ending a 20-year foreign military presence.
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
The B.C. Wildfire Service says more than 250 wildfires are currently burning across the province, with hundreds of firefighters continuing to work through challenging terrain in hot, dry conditions. The number is down from last week, when there were 300 active fires, the agency said. On Saturday afternoon, Public Safety Minister Mike Farnworth greeted 101 firefighters from Mexico to help work alongside crews in British Columbia for the next 30 days. Thousands of residents have been placed under
After an improbable run to the Stanley Cup finals this spring, the Montreal Canadiens accumulated vast amounts of goodwill from fans around the province. But the team's management risked squandering much of it on Friday by drafting Logan Mailloux, an 18-year-old defenceman who was fined recently for sharing sexually explicit photos of a woman without her consent. The decision by the Canadiens to select Mailloux with their first-round pick has drawn condemnation from a wide range of sources, incl

WASHINGTON (AP) — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Sunday named a second Republican critic of Donald Trump, Rep. Adam Kinzinger, to a special committee investigating the Capitol riot and pledged that the Democratic-majority panel will “get to the truth.” Kinzinger said he “humbly accepted” the appointment even as his party's leadership is boycotting the inquiry. With the committee set to hold its first meeting, hearing from police officers who battled the rioters, Pelosi said it was imperative to l
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
For Amanda McClughan, it feels like the phone at Saving Grace Animal Society never stops ringing. Though the rush on puppy adoptions during the pandemic has slowed, the animal rescue in the small village of Alix, Alta., still gets lots of calls from people hoping to adopt animals they have in their care. But in recent weeks, there's been an increasing number of queries to see if their facility can take in cats and dogs that owners can't care for anymore. Pandemic may be a factor in surrenders Mc
A change to the structure of policing in Natuashish has come as a surprise to officials in the community, who say there was not enough consultation between the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and the Mushuau Innu First Nation. The RCMP announced it would be switching to a fly-in, fly-out model in the community, meaning officers will now move in and out of the community in 15-day stints. Two teams of officers working on three to five-year contracts will move back and forth between Natuashish and De
Toronto resident Alicia Soerensen has filed a complaint with the Office of the Independent Police Review Director (OIPRD) as a result of what she alleges was an unlawful arrest during police officers' attempt to clear a homeless encampment from Lamport Stadium park on Wednesday. In her complaint, Sorensen alleges she was unlawfully arrested, that her rights to counsel were not upheld by the police, and that the arresting officers also did not explain her rights to her clearly. Sorsensen says she
Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro said that he was aiming to begin a dialogue with the country's political opposition next month in Mexico facilitated by Norway, a process he hoped the United States would embrace. In May the opposition changed strategy and indicated its willingness to return to negotiations to resolve the political crisis in OPEC member Venezuela. Maduro has overseen an economic collapse in once-prosperous Venezuela since taking office in 2013, and stands accused by his domestic opponents, the United States and the European Union of corruption, human rights violations and rigging his 2018 re-election.
WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) — The United States is in an “unnecessary predicament” of soaring COVID-19 cases fueled by unvaccinated Americans and the virulent delta variant, the nation’s top infectious diseases expert said Sunday. “We’re going in the wrong direction,” said Dr. Anthony Fauci, describing himself as “very frustrated.” He said recommending that the vaccinated wear masks is “under active consideration” by the government’s leading public health officials. Also, booster shots may be suggeste
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
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
