The case couldn't be more true for the Buckingham Palace-approved brand Barbour. Not only have Barbour jackets been spotted on the who's-who of royals over the last 30-something years (we're talking Princess Diana, Kate Middleton and Queen Elizabeth herself) but the British heritage brand has actually earned three Royal Warrants commending its high-quality designs.
If you're looking to snag one of these iconic jackets, several Barbour styles are included in this year's Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (shop here in Canada, here in the U.S.). And while we're technically only in mid-July, there are tons of great buys to stock up on ahead of fall, including the brand's famous Constable Quilted Longline Jacket (shop here in Canada, here in the U.S.)
LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA — A southern Alberta city has taken a small step forward in dealing with homeless encampments after council agreed to seek development approval for an interim shelter. Lethbridge, Alta., has been struggling to permanently remove the camps, most notably a large one of more than 40 tents near the community's civic centre. A week ago, using the Petty Trespassing Act, several tents were removed and the site was cleaned up. But nearly all have returned. Mike Fox, director of commu
Fans in Toronto paid tribute to the work Serena Williams has done for women and people of colour, following the tennis superstar's announcement that she would be retiring after the U.S. Open in September.
COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) — Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy called on Western nations Thursday to provide more money to help Ukraine's military keep fighting nearly 5 1/2 months after Russia invaded its neighbor. “The sooner we stop Russia, the sooner we can feel safe,” Zelenskyy said while addressing defense leaders at a Denmark conference aimed at strengthening financing for weapons, training and demining work in his country. “We need armaments, munitions for our defense," he added, spe
WASHINGTON (AP) — The year was 2016, the presidential candidate under investigation was Hillary Clinton and the FBI director at the time, James Comey, laid out the factors the Justice Department weighs in deciding whether to charge someone with mishandling classified records. Fast forward to 2022 and that tutorial proves instructive as another candidate from that election, Donald Trump, is entangled i n an FBI probe related to sensitive government documents. Whether an FBI search of Trump's Mar-
SURREY, B.C. — Mounties in British Columbia say there is a connection between the discovery of two bodies in a burned vehicle in Summerland and the deaths of two people in a police chase in Abbotsford a day later. The RCMP’s southeast district major crime unit says investigators now believe two people discovered Aug. 6 in the burned-out vehicle were murdered. They say a stolen vehicle that Abbotsford police officers tried to stop on Aug. 7 was flagged for police as being connected to the deaths.
ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Greek authorities say a search and rescue operation is ongoing for a second day for dozens of migrants missing after the boat they were on sank in rough seas off a southeastern Greek island. A Greek navy vessel and three nearby merchant ships were still searching Thursday for between around 30 to 50 people believed missing after the boat that had been carrying them from the Turkish coast of Antalya to Italy capsized in the early hours of Wednesday. No further survivors had
Six years after Ontario ombudsman Paul Dube recommended a standardized, mandatory de-escalation training for police across the province, Ontario is no closer to making it happen, he said on Wednesday. "Progress has been painfully slow," Dube said at a news conference introducing his annual report, which outlines trends and investigations his office handled between April 1, 2021 and March 31, 2022. Mandatory de-escalation training is just one of the recommendations Dube made in a 2016 report issu
Chris Clay has visited Charlottetown's "tent cities" many times over the summer to make sure the people living there have the supplies they need to survive. Clothes, blankets, food, water — as well as clean needles and smoking supplies. And not just for clients of the Native Council of P.E.I, where Clay works as the co-ordinator of the Reaching Home project. "Anyone who's struggling or homeless at the moment, we supply them." Weeks ago, there were more than 20 people living in an encampment on t
Businesses in New Horizon Mall say things are looking up for the troubled shopping centre north of Calgary. The $200-million Asian-inspired mall opened in 2018, making the headlines for its lack of stores and shoppers, with only nine of its 517 units open for business at the time. It's taken several years but businesses now say as more small, niche stores are opening up — attracted in large part by low rents and incentives — more shoppers are finally visiting the mall to take a look inside and e
MONTREAL — An independent investigation will be held into Pride Montreal's last-minute cancellation over the weekend of its emblematic parade, the City of Montreal announced Tuesday. Montreal Mayor Valérie Plante said on Twitter that organizers of the annual festival promised their full co-operation. The city will soon name someone to lead the inquiry who "understands and is sensitive toward LGBTQ+ communities and realities," Plante spokesperson Catherine Cadotte said in an interview. The mayor

The purse is set, the track announcer is clearing his throat and the horses are getting ready for the first of three trial heats. Excitement is beginning to mount for P.E.I.'s biggest harness race of the year, the Gold Cup & Saucer, at the Charlottetown Driving Park. "The stage is really set now," said Lee Drake, manager of racing and broadcast for Red Shores properties. "We're thrilled to have 22 horses. That's a big commitment from a lot of owners, a lot of trainers and drivers and coming from
A recent Canadian Transportation Agency (CTA) decision was supposed to help clear the air on flight compensation. When issuing a decision in a WestJet case on July 8, the transport regulator clarified that, in general, airlines can't deny passengers compensation for flight disruptions caused by crew shortages. However, the clarification has only ignited fury for some passengers, including Frank Michel, who have since been denied compensation — due to crew shortages. "It's insulting," said Michel
The first two people diagnosed with monkeypox in Newfoundland and Labrador say incorrect information from the provincial Public Health department prevented them from getting properly tested and delayed access to protection for their close contacts. Both men — CBC News has agreed not to identify them because they're concerned about the stigma associated with the disease — attended different Pride events outside the province at the end of June. The 22-year-old man who was the first probable case,
