The fish, which gets its name from a fleshy bump behind its head, was first listed as endangered in 1967, its habitat severely disrupted by dam construction. Its numbers also declined wi
Get tested or face the consequences — that's the new choice facing potentially thousands of Manitobans who work with vulnerable populations but have yet to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Public health officials hope the inconvenience of being subjected to a test every 48 hours, logging it and showing the result to a supervisor will sway some to join the growing number of vaccinated Manitobans.

A Cape Breton artist has written and illustrated Canada's first Scottish Gaelic graphic novel. Ás a' Chamhanaich or Out of the Twilight is a collection of 12 short stories by Angus MacLeod, a Gaelic language and song teacher from Goose Cove, N.S. "To put it into a genre is really difficult because the stories are just whatever stories came to me," MacLeod said.

Premier Scott Moe admitted Tuesday that Saskatchewan should have responded faster to the deadly fourth wave of COVID-19 that continues to sweep through the province. "Should have the province moved a week, possibly 10 days earlier?" Moe said to host Leisha Grebinski on CBC's Saskatoon Morning.

It was a slight change in tone from Moe, who has steadfastly refused to apologize for the decisions made by the provincial go
