WASHINGTON (AP) — It's a Washington mystery that no one seems able to unravel. The Supreme Court apparently still hasn't found the person who leaked a draft of the court's major abortion decision earlier this year. In a television interview airing this weekend, retired Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer, who left the court in June when the justices began their summer break, says he hasn't heard that the person's identity has been determined. Breyer, 84, was speaking with CNN anchor Chris Walla
Pierre-Boucher Hospital on Montreal's South Shore says it has contained an outbreak of a lethal, drug-resistant fungal infection that affected two patients. The patients who contracted the super fungus — known as Candida auris — were not infected with it, but were carriers, explained Dr. Julie Okapuu, a microbiologist at the hospital. Two linked people carrying the fungus is enough to declare an outbreak, said Okapuu, noting that the cases started two weeks ago. Because they weren't infected, th
HALIFAX — The RCMP’s response to the 2020 shooting rampage that left 22 Nova Scotians dead was far from perfect, but police did their best, the federal Justice Department said Friday. During the final day of public proceedings at the federal-provincial inquiry into the mass shooting, Lori Ward, general counsel for the federal Department of Justice, said there’s always room for improvement for all policing agencies. “No response to a critical incident of this magnitude could be perfect, but when
When it was first announced, Don't Worry Darling, seemed to be the ideal project to bring actor-turned-director Olivia Wilde's career to the next level. A hot script, A-list stars — what better way to build on the buzz from her hilarious feature film debut Booksmart? And now here we are, Wilde ushered onto The Late Show to do damage control after rumours and stories of behind-the-scenes drama followed the film like a pack of paparazzi. No, Harry Styles did not spit on Chris Pine, she told host S
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Treasury Department said Friday it was allowing American tech firms to expand their business in Iran, one of the most sanctioned countries in the world, to boost internet access for the Iranian people. The Iranian government cut most internet access for its 80 million citizens during a crackdown on demonstrators protesting the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini in the custody of Iran’s morality police. The morality police detained Amini last week, saying she didn’t properly c
A working definition of antisemitism has been adopted by the Alberta government. On Friday, the province adopted the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) definition of antisemitism, which states — in part — that Holocaust denial and Jewish conspiracy theories fall under the realm of antisemitism. Justice Minister Tyler Shandro said having a working definition can help with investigations of hate crimes due to a better understanding of what qualifies as antisemitism. "Sadly, incide

He's only been riding his motorcycle for a few months, but Marshall McNaughton has already seen how dangerous it can be. "A lot of people are distracted and are just trying to go to work," he says. "They're not thinking about the big picture. They just look at you as an object. When I'm going to work or just go for a little ride, you have to keep your head on a swivel because people are very dangerous." McNaughton has seen things that people do behind the wheel. "They're on their phones, changin
The death of a young Iranian woman in police custody has sparked protests in Iran and around the world, including in British Columbia. Mahsa Amini, 22, died last week following her arrest by Iran's morality police for "unsuitable attire" after she allegedly wore a hijab improperly. Her death unleashed a nationwide flood of protests over human rights, security and an economy reeling from international sanctions. Iranian state TV suggested the death toll from the unrest could be as high as 26, wit
A man and a woman arrested a year ago for allegedly feeding coyotes in Vancouver's Stanley Park have been charged with four offences under the Wildlife Act and must abide by specific bail conditions as their case winds its way through provincial court. CBC News has learned that Kemthong Clasby and Terence Lee Clasby were charged on Oct. 8, 2021, under sections of the B.C. Wildlife Act related to leaving or placing attractants for dangerous wildlife. Despite trying to confirm charges over the pas
After a tornado ripped through Bruce Pit off-leash dog park in 2018 the woodland is lush with new growth, and it provides a good example of what derecho-ravaged forests on other National Capital Commission (NCC) land will likely look like in a few years. But not all of the work done in Bruce Pit these last four years, or in NCC-owned Pine Grove and Pinhey Forest after the derecho in May, are ecological best practices, according to an urban forestry expert with the University of British Columbia.
A special coin-sized keepsake has been minted in Winnipeg to honour residential school survivors and victims, and ensure Canadians never forget the intergenerational impacts of the schools. The Royal Canadian Mint launched the new keepsake during a news conference Thursday, ahead of the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation on Sept. 30. The keepsake "invites reflection and conversation about the impacts of those schools, the conditions that created them, and how people living in Canada can t
The women stand next to each other, holding their hair, and then they begin cutting it with scissors. On Thursday, women in Saskatoon joined women in Iran and around the world who are cutting their hair in public to protest the death of Mahsa Amini, 22, who died in custody after Iran's morality police arrested her for not adequately covering her hair. "People here are looking for justice," said Tiam Kazemi, who took part in the protest Thursday at the University of Saskatchewan campus. "They are

Farmers across the Island are bracing for the worst as Hurricane Fiona approaches. Geoff Boyle, co-owner of The Grove Orchard and U-Pick, said the biggest concern he has ahead of the storm is the wind it will bring. "If we get 120-kilometre-an-hour winds when the fruit is as ripe as it is, and as heavy as it is, there's an opportunity for a lot of that to end up on the ground," he said. On Thursday, teams of workers spread out across the orchard, some working to tighten the trellises used to sup
