MONTREAL — Quebec says walk-in clinics won't be able to offer Pfizer vaccines for the next several days due to a shipping delay. A Friday evening statement from the Ministry of Health says the 546,000 shots expected to be delivered over the weekend now won't arrive until June 24 or 25, prompting the temporary pause that takes effect today and is expected to lift when doses land. The Ministry statement says there's currently enough supply to ensure previously booked appointments can proceed over
Canadians fully immunized with two shots of the Oxford-AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine may now attend a highly anticipated Broadway production featuring Bruce Springsteen, but at least one Canadian hoping to take in the show still has questions about whether or not he can attend. David Screech said Saturday he was pleased to hear that the theatre staging "Springsteen on Broadway" had amended rules that previously barred AstraZeneca recipients from attending the production featuring The Boss in an a
LONDON (AP) — England’s draw with Scotland showed just how confusing the European Championship format can be for the teams and even the organizers. UEFA’s official website stated ahead of Friday's game that a draw would secure England a spot in the round of 16 with a game to spare. Once England had underwhelmingly clinched that point after being held to a 0-0 draw by Scotland, qualification seemed likely but not guaranteed. England coach Gareth Southgate certainly wasn’t celebrating advancing, a

RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — Anti-government protesters took to the streets in more than a score of cities across Brazil on Saturday as the nation's confirmed death toll from COVID-19 soared past half a million — a tragedy many critics blame on President Jair Bolsonaro's attempt to minimize the disease. Thousands gathered in downtown Rio de Janeiro waving flags with slogans such as “Get out Bolsonaro. Government of hunger and unemployment.” “Brazil is experiencing a great setback. The country was an ex
HALIFAX — A 58-year-old Nova Scotia man is facing a charge of second-degree murder after police allege a man was intentionally hit by a motor vehicle and run over multiple times.

MONTREAL — The sun hadn't yet risen in Montreal on Friday morning when a contingent of Ontario hockey fans prepared to descend on the city ahead of what they saw as a monumental hockey game. The Montreal Canadiens were set to square off against the Las Vegas Golden Knights, marking the first time since 2014 that the team had made the National Hockey League's semi-finals, and Alexander Vizier and his friends had no intention of missing out. The group had driven 17 hours from the northern Ontario

New research suggests wolves can be steered away from the endangered caribou herds they prey on by making the man-made trails they use to hunt harder to move along. The recently published study adds to the debate over whether governments should depend on shooting and poisoning wolves to protect caribou, said lead author Jonah Keim. "It's probably one of the most challenging conservation issues in the Northern Hemisphere," said Keim, an independent researcher based in New York state. Woodland car
Toronto police say they've made an arrest in what they've previously described as a suspected hate crime on the city's Island. Investigators have alleged a man and a woman were walking to the Island's ferry docks on June 5 when a disagreement broke out between them and a group of other people. Police allege a man from the second group made homophobic comments, and two men from the group assaulted the male victim leaving him with significant injuries. Elijah McGibbon, 24, was arrested today and c
ORLANDO, Fla. — Taking advantage of a defensive blunder, Junior Urso's 84th-minute goal lifted Orlando City SC to a 3-2 win over Toronto FC in MLS play Saturday. Brazilian fullback Auro's poor cross-field pass went straight to the Orlando midfielder, who played a give-and-go with Chris Mueller before slotting a low shot past Quentin Westberg at the near post. Goals by Ayo Akinola and Jonathan Osorio had looked to rescue Toronto from a nightmarish start that saw Orlando goals by Tesho Akindele an

Warsaw Mayor Rafal Trzaskowski walked at the head of the Equality Parade on Saturday — a sign of support for LGBT rights by the liberal politician. Thousands of people joined the march and were cheered on by others waving rainbow flags from their apartment balconies and sidew
