Nearly 700 customers are still without power Sunday afternoon in New Brunswick. The majority of the power outages are happening in the Moncton area in Riverview, where 692 customers were without power as 1:30 p.m., according to N.B. Power. The power in the region is expected to return around 4:30 p.m. Over 700 were also without power in Madawaska and Victoria counties earlier Sunday morning, which include the communities of Notre Dame De Lourdes, Siegas and Ste-Anne-Madawaska. That brought the t
Officials say they've located the remains of four people on the Eastway Tank blast site, but it will likely take time to recover them and piece together what happened — and the impending winter storm isn't helping. Six people are believed to have died following the massive explosion on Jan. 13 at the company's Merivale Road headquarters. In an update Sunday, various officials said the site's dangers mean the remains are still inaccessible. "The scene of the explosion has been very challenging fo
Students at several schools across Manitoba walked out of their classrooms Monday morning to protest the lack of safety measures to protect them against COVID-19 as they return to in-person learning. In Winnipeg, walkouts began at about 11:30 a.m. at Grant Park High School, Maples Collegiate, Gordon Bell High School, Collège Louis-Riel, and Collège Béliveau. Some of the walkouts saw dozens of students participate, while other saw only a few, CBC News reporters observed. Ava Byrne, a student at K
(Reuters) -A gunman who took four people hostage at a Dallas-area synagogue and was himself killed as federal agents stormed the temple was identified on Sunday as a British citizen, while police in England said they had detained two teenagers for questioning in the investigation. The daylong siege at the Congregation Beth Israel synagogue in Colleyville, about 16 miles northeast of Fort Worth, Texas, ended in gunfire Saturday night with all four hostages released unharmed and with the suspect dead. It was not clear whether the gunman took his own life or was slain by members of the FBI hostage rescue team.

MONTREAL — Thousands of elementary and high school students are set to return to in-person learning across Quebec on Monday, but parents say they're concerned the province hasn't done enough to ensure classrooms safety amid COVID-19's virulent fifth wave. Premier François Legault announced last week he would proceed with a plan to reopen schools to in-person learning on Jan. 17 even as pandemic-related infection rates and hospitalizations continue to mount provincewide. The government promised a
As part of the annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day D.C. Peace Walk, the King family and more than 100 national and local civil rights groups strode across the Frederick Douglass Memorial Bridge calling on President Joe Biden's Democrats to pass a bill in the U.S. Senate. The march followed a disappointing week for Biden, who went to the Capitol to urge Senate colleagues to change filibuster rules so they could overcome Republican opposition to the bill, only to be forcefully rejected by two conservative Democrats who effectively hold veto power in the evenly split chamber. In a separate speech livestreamed to the late Rev. King's Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, Vice President Kamala Harris also urged the Senate to act, warning that efforts to restrict voting in some U.S. states could make it more difficult for millions of Americans to vote.
Montreal police say they are investigating after a 14-year-old was shot and injured inside an apartment on Saturday night. They say they received a call around 6 p.m. about gunshots in the city's Ville-Marie borough. Police say the teen was taken to hospital for lower-body injuries, but his condition is now stable. Spokeswoman Caroline Chèvrefils says investigators established the shooting happened inside an apartment after meeting with the teen today. She says the investigation will determine w
It's a form of déjà vu for British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, and it involves government staffers, pandemic-era social gatherings and subsequent apologies. Johnson offered one such apology this past Wednesday for attending a BYOB garden party in May 2020 involving dozens of Downing Street staff, held in contravention of COVID-19 restrictions that Britons were supposed to be following at the time. He acknowledged public "rage" over the fact that "the rules are not being properly followed by th
The central bank's Business Outlook Survey Indicator reached its highest level on record in the fourth quarter, which was conducted before the Omicron coronavirus variant began spreading widely. The data will play into the Bank of Canada's calculations as it ponders when to raise rates. "The combination of strong demand and bottlenecks in supply is expected to put upward pressure on prices over the next year," said the survey.

BERLIN (AP) — After years of disappointment, Hertha Berlin fans are bracing themselves for yet more ahead of a daunting week against city rival Union Berlin and Bavarian powerhouse Bayern Munich. Hertha hosts in-form Union in the third round of the German Cup on Wednesday, then league leader Bayern in the Bundesliga on Sunday. Injuries, the coronavirus, and the upheaval caused by the high turnover of players amid another coaching change have complicated Hertha’s bid to emerge from its stubborn y

Thirty people gathered for a sombre vigil in Carcross, Yukon, Saturday afternoon to remember those they've lost to opioids and support the grieving families they've left behind. The Carcross/Tagish First Nation declared a state of emergency last week after three of their members died from drug use. Lyndsay Amato, the vigil's organizer, said it's a way to mark these losses, but also a time to pressure the territorial government for more harm reduction support outside of Yukon's major centres. "I
