People at high risk of severe disease from COVID-19 infection should be offered a booster shot this fall, regardless of how many boosters they've previously received, the National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) said on Wednesday. That group includes everyone age 65 and older, NACI's updated guidance said. Everyone else — age 12 to 64 — "may be offered" the additional doses in the fall, NACI said. NACI said it will provide recommendations on the type of booster to be given when evidenc
Dave Lawrence was on his way to a store in uptown Fredericton when he stumbled across a curious scene. A man was stooped over on the sidewalk frantically scooping up what looked like dozens of small snakes, using a tree branch to scoop them into a little red bucket. "I saw what I thought was a snake, because in one of the photos I posted, it's standing up," said Lawrence. "That's when I looked a bit more to my left, more the entrance way to the Hilltop restaurant, and I saw what looked like two
HONG KONG (AP) — Chinese leader Xi Jinping arrived Thursday in Hong Kong to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the British handover of a city that his rule has transformed from a global hub known for its political freedoms to one that is much more tightly controlled by the Communist Party. In a staged event carried live on Chinese TV, students and others lined the platform of a high-speed rail station and packed a red carpet to greet the leader making his first trip outside of mainland China in n

HONG KONG (Reuters) -There is no reason to change Hong Kong's "one country, two systems" formula of governance, Chinese President Xi Jinping said on a rare visit to the global financial hub after swearing in the city's new leader, John Lee, on Friday. Britain returned Hong Kong to Chinese rule on July 1, 1997, with Beijing promising wide-ranging autonomy, unfettered individual rights and judicial independence at least until 2047. China's critics accuse authorities of trampling on those freedoms, unavailable on the authoritarian mainland, with a sweeping national security law imposed by Beijing on the city in 2020 after mass pro-democracy protests the year before.
Parking can be hard to come by in uptown Saint John, but paying for it might soon become easier. The city is moving toward a QR code payment option that would allow users to pay with a smartphone and a credit card. The technology will be an additional option to current payment methods, like the HotSpot app, pay-and-display, and coin machines. Marc Dionne, the director of parking, parks and recreational facilities for Saint John, says the city will be the first in the Maritimes to adopt QR codes

VANCOUVER — A timeline has finally been announced for the removal of a huge barge that wedged itself onto a beach in Vancouver's English Bay last November. A statement from the City of Vancouver says a local pile driving firm will set up fences and barricades around the barge this week. Temporary piles will then be drilled into the Sunset Beach shoreline to secure the barge and, once that work is complete, deconstruction will begin. The city estimates removal of sections of the barge's walls and

Air Canada will cut dozens of daily flights this summer as the airline grapples with a series of challenges amid soaring demand for travel. The changes would see Air Canada reduce its schedule by 77 round trips — or 154 flights — on average, each day during the months of July and August. "Regrettably, things are not business as usual in our industry globally, and this is affecting our operations and our ability to serve you with our normal standards of care," Michael Rousseau, the airline's pres
WASHINGTON (AP) — Mohegan Chief Marilynn “Lynn” Malerba, the nation's first Native American U.S. treasurer, comes from a line of chiefs who instilled in her the need to keep her tribe healthy and to survive. “It's our job to leave footprints on the path for those who come behind us — so they may find their way easily," she said in an interview Wednesday with The Associated Press. Now Malerba, 68, will bring that mindset to two new jobs in Washington: Last week President Joe Biden appointed her U

In a news release issued by Newfoundland and Labrador's Public Utilities Board Thursday, the resupplying of fuel across most parts of Labrador has been completed. As a result, the PUB is lifting a winter price freeze that has been in place in coastal Labrador since November along with implementing a summer price freeze across much of the region.

ISTANBUL (AP) — When the leaders of Finland, Sweden and Turkey met with NATO’s chief Tuesday, the potential for progress was hard to predict. Some remained pessimistic the meeting would lessen Turkey’s objections to the Nordic pair’s historic request to join NATO. The government in Ankara had indicated for weeks that as an existing member of the Western military alliance, it would use its veto to prevent Sweden and Finland's applications unless its demands were met. Turkey argued the two countri
