MONTREAL — Quebec Premier François Legault says his Immigration Minister Jean Boulet is no longer qualified for the position after recent comments emerged in which Boulet said the majority of immigrants "don't work." Campaigning for re-election, the Coalition Avenir Québec leader was confronted Wednesday with a statement Boulet made last week during a candidates debate. Legault said in a series of broadcast interviews that Boulet would not be immigration minister if the CAQ wins Monday's vote. E
Some of P.E.I.'s most vulnerable population sectors have been hit hard in the wake of post-tropical storm Fiona — particularly seniors. CBC News spoke with several nursing homes in Charlottetown on Wednesday. None had significant damage but some were still relying on generators five days after the storm — something they had in common with much of the province. At one provincially run apartment building for seniors, the power was back but there were still puddles in the hallway. Resident Don Robe
The Windsor-Essex County Health Unit (WECHU) is reporting an increase in COVID-19 cases, according to wastewater data gathered by the health unit. The health unit's new data portal shows an increase in the number of cases found in wastewater data from Sept. 5-19, 2022. Updated information is expected to be released Thursday. "The indicators suggested the burden of the disease is greater now than it was two weeks ago," said WECHU Interim Medical Officer of Health Dr. Shanker Nesathurai in the hea
Yankees slugger Aaron Judge tied an American League record with his 61st home run of the season in an 8-3 win over Toronto. The homer pulled him even with Yankees legend Roger Maris, who set the mark in 1961.
Post-tropical storm Fiona has severely damaged Canada's Atlantic coastlines, washing away entire sand dunes and destroying beaches. That coastal erosion poses a serious threat to ecosystems, and could take generations to repair.
A resurgent Hurricane Ian barreled north on Friday toward a second landfall in South Carolina, a day after carving a path of destruction across central Florida that left rescue crews racing to reach trapped residents along the state's Gulf Coast. Ian, which had weakened to a tropical storm during its march across Florida, regained Category 1 hurricane strength on Thursday afternoon while churning toward South Carolina above the Atlantic Ocean, with maximum sustained wind speeds of 75 mph (120 kph), the U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) said.
B.C. Tourism Minister Melanie Mark has resigned from cabinet to go on medical leave effectively immediately. A statement from the premier's office Wednesday said Mark is taking leave "to focus on pressing and urgent personal matters." "While I regret that she will not be at the cabinet table, I respect her decision and her commitment to her constituents," Premier John Horgan wrote. Citizen Services Minister Lisa Beare has assumed responsibility for tourism, arts, culture and sport in addition to
Nova Scotia Premier Tim Houston is calling for more transparency and co-operation from major telecommunications companies, blasting them for not being more involved with provincial co-ordination efforts in the wake of a major storm that knocked out service for hundreds of thousands of people across Atlantic Canada. But a number of telecommunications companies say they participated in efforts as much as possible while trying to assess and repair damage caused by post-tropical storm Fiona. In a ne
A group of Regina residents plans to donate the $500 affordability cheques expected from the province this fall to four local non-profit groups fighting poverty. They are asking more Saskatchewan residents to consider the same. The initiative "is to look at the needs of people who are in poverty today," Carol Schick, a professor emeritus at the University of Regina, said Thursday. Poverty, she said, "is not just unfortunate but also grossly unfair. It isn't simply about charity, it's about justi
Alberta's COVID-19 death toll climbed by more than 30, while hospitalizations spiked by nearly 140, provincial data shows. Since the pandemic began, 4,905 Albertans have died from COVID-19 as of Monday, an increase of 33 from a week ago. Meanwhile, 980 people are in hospital with the illness, including 39 intensive care unit patients. Last week, there were 843 hospital patients, including 26 in ICU. The province's seven-day PCR test-positivity rate is 18.75 per cent, down slightly from 19.52 per
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Hurricane Ian lashed Florida's southwest coast Wednesday with heavy winds and rain after strengthening to a catastrophic storm that was likely to deliver devastating floods. The center of the massive Category 4 storm lingered offshore for hours, which was likely to mean more rain and damage from a hurricane that was trudging on a track that would have it making landfall north of the heavily populated Fort Myers area. Catastrophic storm surges could push 12 to 18 feet
To commemorate the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation last year, Kanien'kehá:ka (Mohawk) artist Wyler Diome-Montour designed T-shirts for his community. This year, he had the idea to do something that would be even more visible to honour residential school survivors and children who never returned home: design bright orange crosswalks. "In the grand scheme of things, it's a small gesture but every gesture counts," said Diome-Montour, who is from Kahnawake, south of Montreal. Diome-Montour
WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell said Wednesday that he believes his party now has a “50-50 shot” of getting the chamber back less than six weeks away from the midterm elections. “We are in a bunch of close races,” McConnell told reporters during a press conference. “It’s going to be really, really close either way, in my view.” The comments reflect a greater degree of optimism from the GOP leader after he drew criticism last month from fellow Republicans when he downpl
OTTAWA — The Liberals say it's up to national security agencies to decide whether Canada extends its terrorism list to include a branch of Iran's military. MPs passed a motion in 2018 to designate the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps as a terrorist organization. The U.S. has put the group on its terror list, but Canada has only listed a subset of the organization. Iranians are facing a violent human-rights crackdown, and the Conservatives have renewed calls to have the IRGC listed as a terror g
The Indian government has threatened to deport Rohingya refugees who have been living in a tent city in Delhi, since being expelled from Myanmar in 2017.
The Latest on Hurricane Ian: SANIBEL, Fla. — The U.S. death toll from Hurricane Ian’s passage has risen to four overall after an official said late Thursday that two people were confirmed dead on a hard-hit barrier island on Florida’s western coast. Dana Souza, city manager of Sanibel, said the deaths were confirmed by fire officials but offered no other specifics. A local medical examiner’s office said it could not comment and any details on deaths would have to come from the sheriff’s office.

Maddie the Great Dane went out for a different car ride with Mom, to top up the SUV with gas, only to find out that the gas stations in the Tampa Bay area are already running out of gas. Mom & Maddie were able to find gas, but the four closest gas stations are already out fuel 2 1/2 days before the arrival of Hurricane Ian in Florida. The Hurricane is currently tracking as a category 4, which would be catastrophic to Tampa with the winds & storm surge.
