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

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 Alberta government plans to rescind a public health order barring health-care workers from working at more than one continuing-care facility by mid-February — if not sooner. Last fall, the province consulted with various unions and "other staff and employer representatives" about allowing health-care workers to work at more than one site, a spokesperson for the health ministry told CBC News in an email. The single-site order is expected to be rescinded Feb. 16, the spokesperson said. Althoug
Not many hit TV shows are inspired by the comments section of news articles. Showtime's Yellowjackets was conceived in 2017 when its creator saw that an all-girls remake of Lord of the Flies was being roundly mocked on the internet, with many doubting that girls would devolve into barbarism like the schoolboy characters of William Golding's 1954 novel. The new series — a kind of cross between the aforementioned book and the popular ABC show Lost — tells the story of an all-girls high school socc
