The Nova Scotia government is moving to head off a protest planned for the province's border with New Brunswick this weekend. In a statement late Friday afternoon, the Emergency Management Office issued an order that prohibits protesters from blockading the Trans-Canada Highway at the border. The order also applies to people stopping or gathering along the side of the highway, both at the border and at the toll plaza for the Cobequid Pass, the highway that runs through northern Nova Scotia to th

Public Health in Nova Scotia has stopped calling people to follow up on their COVID-19 cases and is asking them to instead fill in an online survey to help the province track symptoms and impairments that linger after three months. Ashley Harnish, a health services manager for Nova Scotia's health authority, said the website survey is a continuation of a phone-based survey they started doing last year. They want to hear from people who were diagnosed with COVID-19 three or more months ago, and a
Conservative Leader Erin O’Toole says the unvaccinated truckers rolling into Ottawa is a “symbol” of the frustration they feel toward Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his pandemic policies like vaccine mandates. He also denounced individuals involved in the convoy who are pushing extremist ideas.
OTTAWA — Dozens of big rigs rolled into downtown Ottawa Friday, as a planned protest began to swell in size and energy, and some in attendance promised to stay put until vaccine mandates are abolished or Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is forced from office. But what some believe to be a demonstration in support of truckers opposed to a cross-border vaccine mandate is, in fact, a much broader push to end all COVID-19 restrictions. It is rooted in a movement that goes at least as far back as the la

Conservative Party Leader Erin O’Toole said Thursday that he would meet with truckers on Friday as a trucker convoy rumbles toward Ottawa.

SURREY, B.C. — The Mounties called in explosive experts after a person walked into one of their offices in Surrey, B.C., with a grenade on Thursday. The RCMP say someone went to their Guildford office to hand over the device, saying it was found at a nearby park. The office and surrounding area had to be evacuated because it was unclear if the grenade was still functioning. Streets around the detachment were also closed as a precaution. Const. Sarbjit Sangha says in a news release that anyone wh
OTTAWA — It's difficult to forget the tragic scenes that played out in long-term care homes across the country in the early days of the pandemic as residents died in the thousands, isolated from their loved ones. While vaccines have played a major role in protecting homes from the same deadly toll the first wave of COVID-19 took on residents, the impact has still been profound during the Omicron wave. "It's staggering when you just look at the number of homes in outbreak," said Dr. Samir Sinha,

VICTORIA — British Columbia's top doctor says some COVID-19 restrictions on social gatherings are expected to be gradually lifted by Feb. 21. Dr. Bonnie Henry said that's possible in part because 90 per cent of residents aged 12 and over have received two doses of a vaccine, though more people need to get a booster shot for longer-lasting protection. The most recent public health orders related to gatherings at sports events and concerts, for example, were set to expire on Feb. 16, and Henry sai

Dr. Eileen de Villa, Toronto's medical officer of health, said Friday that public health officials increasingly believe that COVID-19 will become endemic and that there will be a level of infection that Torontonians will have to learn to live with.
