WASHINGTON (Reuters) -The United States on Monday announced a series of steps to revise its policy toward Cuba, including easing some Trump-era restrictions on family remittances and travel to the island and sharply increasing the processing of U.S. visas for Cubans. The measures, which were rolled out after a lengthy U.S. government review, mark the most significant changes in the U.S. approach to Havana since President Joe Biden took office in January 2021. But the announcement stopped short of returning U.S.-Cuba relations to the historic rapprochement engineered by former President Barack Obama, under whom Biden served as vice president.

OTTAWA — The Terry Fox statue across from Parliament Hill will need to be moved to make way for a new building complex to house offices for MPs and senators. The new central building, which is rectangular with a nod to neoclassical design, has distinctive copper window facades, a reference to the copper roofs on existing parliamentary buildings. The parliamentary complex will encompass 11 buildings and will cost an estimated $430 million and will include 150 offices. But construction will not st
A municipal councillor in Pond Inlet, Nunavut, is accusing the hamlet's mayor of bypassing council to push for a controversial mine expansion. In a letter to Canada's northern affairs minister, Pond Inlet Coun. Boazie Ootoova says Mayor Joshua Arreak violated municipal rules by "improperly" endorsing the Baffinland Iron Mines project without council's approval. Baffinland, which operates the Mary River iron ore mine on north Baffin Island, is proposing to double production at the mine and build

Communities along the St. Lawrence River and Lake Ontario from Napanee to Mallorytown are under severe thunderstorm warnings Monday afternoon, as are the Maniwaki and Papineau-Lebelle regions of western Quebec. The Ottawa area is under a severe thunderstorm watch. Environment Canada's warnings say a severe thunderstorm is in that area.

The short chapter of a Calgary site in the tragic history of Canada's residential school system will not be forgotten if the City of Calgary and Treaty 7 nations can agree on how to do that. St. Dunstan's industrial school was operated by the Anglican Church from 1892 to 1907 on land that is now in southeast Calgary. Located between Deerfoot Trail and the Bow River, a short distance south of the Calf Robe Bridge, the city has owned the land for several decades. The city is interested in working

Will Towell is at an impasse: either live in a homeless shelter with cockroaches he hates or move back to a tent in the bush and deal with a bunch of other critters. What the 64-year-old Kingston, Ont., resident really needs is a wheelchair-accessible unit in social housing. But it could be years before a spot opens up and market rent for a decent apartment is far beyond what his monthly disability support cheque provides. While the thought of living outdoors tempts him, Towell decides to tough
A Maud Lewis painting once traded for a grilled cheese sandwich 50 years ago in London, Ont., has sold for $350,000 at auction. It marks the first time a painting by the artist has exceeded a sale of $100,000. The previous record price for her work was set in November 2021 when Train Station In Winter fetched $67,250. "We didn't really realize the treasure that she was to Canadians," said Irene Demas, former owner of the painting Black Truck. "This will put her out into the world. Everybody will
Everywhere you look around Vilkhivka, there are renewed signs of life and even more potent, lingering signs of death following the savage struggle that unfolded this spring on the edge of Kharkiv, Ukraine. Until just a few weeks ago, this rustic village about 20 kilometres east of Kharkiv in the eastern part of the war-torn country was under the boot of the Russian army. It was one of the first communities near the country's second largest city to be liberated in a slow, painful counter-offensiv

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden on Monday thanked Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis for his country's “moral leadership” in the aftermath of Russia's invasion of Ukraine as the two held talks at the White House on Monday about the ongoing conflict. The visit by Mitsotakis comes as he was in Washington to mark a COVID-delayed commemoration of the bicentennial of the start of the Greek War of Independence, a more than eight-year long struggle that led to the ouster of the Ottoman Empi

Officers were called to the area of Church Street and Wood Street shortly after midnight on Sunday.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Signs of Republican resistance are mounting over a $40 billion aid package to Ukraine, a reemergence of the Trump-led isolationist wing of the GOP that's coming at a crucial moment as the war against the Russian invasion deepens. The Senate voted late Monday to advance the Ukraine aid bill 81-11, pushing it toward President Joe Biden's desk by week's end to become law. But more vocal objections from Republicans in Congress are sending warning signs after what has been rare and
