PHOENIX (AP) — Long before he assembled one of the largest far-right anti-government militia groups in U.S. history, before his Oath Keepers stormed the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, Stewart Rhodes was a promising Yale Law School graduate.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Monday he will travel to the Atlantic Canada regions impacted by post-tropical storm Fiona this week, adding that he would make the trip “as soon as possible.” The prime minister added that Canadian military personnel are already on the ground in Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island and are being deployed to Newfoundland.
The Canadian Space Agency has posted satellite photos that dramatically illustrate how post-tropical storm Fiona changed Prince Edward Island's coastline. "This comparison of satellite images of Prince Edward Island and the Northumberland Strait, taken on Aug. 21 and Sept. 25, 2022, shows the extent to which the extreme wind and wave action of the storm has churned up the seafloor and eroded the coastline," the agency said on Twitter Tuesday.

BURNT ISLANDS, N.L. — Paula Keeping pointed to the window that was once her son's bedroom. It lay on top of the crumpled remains of her former house, a mess of wood siding and household items in the middle of a road. The debris was piled metres away from where the house stood last week before post-tropical storm Fiona blasted the southwestern Newfoundland community of Burnt Islands. "I figure my kitchen is out where my porch is too," she said. "It's devastating. Just in disbelief." Keeping said
An investigation conducted by the Calgary Parking Authority, the city-operated agency that manages municipal parking services in the city, has revealed that the personal information of 145,895 customers was exposed for at least two months last year. It's a revelation that the chair of the cybersecurity program at the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology is calling "shameful" and "negligent."

Unexplained gas leaks detected in the Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines from Russia to Germany have prompted investigations by European countries into the cause, including possible sabotage. Denmark's armed forces on Tuesday released video showing bubbles rushing to the surface of the Baltic Sea above the pipelines, and said the largest gas leak had caused surface disturbance of well over 1 kilometre in diameter. The operator of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline reported a sudden drop in pressure overnight on Monday, with a spokesperson suggesting there could have been a leak.
A libertarian group in California filed a legal challenge to President Joe Biden’s plan for student debt cancellation on Tuesday, calling it an illegal overreach that would increase state tax burdens for some Americans who get their debt forgiven. The lawsuit, believed to be the first targeting Biden’s plan, was filed by the Pacific Legal Foundation, a Sacramento law firm. It was filed in federal court in Indiana, one of several states that plan to tax any student debt canceled by Biden’s plan.
Flipping through her high school yearbook doesn't spark nostalgia in Janaye Majer. "Memories I don't miss at all," she said of her time at Queen Elizabeth Secondary. Majer, who is Black, says she was bullied and targeted with racial slurs at the Surrey, B.C., high school. Over the years, she says she was subjected to the N-word and told "really derogatory racial things about myself." "I was told to kill myself and just very terrible things that I had to go through." Majer says, in her case, teac
In his dining room in Cochrane, Atla., Dan Kroffat watches a YouTube video of an old Stampede Wrestling match. The 77-year-old former professional wrestler was part of the tour in the 1970s. He travelled far and wide across the Prairies with Stampede Wrestling. "I would travel to different towns, Saskatoon, Regina, Edmonton, Lethbridge and other cities and towns as well. So it was a hectic, hectic schedule, if you will, but the show was very vibrant," he said. "People saw us on the streets and t
Unexplained leaks in two Russian gas pipelines in the Baltic Sea are spewing out greenhouse gas emissions, raising fears that the disruption could cause a climate calamity - although to what extent is still unclear. Neither pipeline was in operation, but both contained natural gas - which is largely composed of methane, a potent greenhouse gas that is the second biggest cause of climate change after CO2. "There are a number of uncertainties, but if these pipelines fail, the impact to the climate will be disastrous and could even be unprecedented," said atmospheric chemist David McCabe, who is senior scientist at the non-profit Clean Air Task Force.
