Tornado warned storms whip through Regina, Saskatchewan.
Property developer China Evergrande Group is teetering on the brink of collapse, weighed down by a giant debt load and billions of dollars in real estate it can't sell as quickly or as profitably as anticipated. While trouble has been brewing for a year, it's coming to a head now, as the conglomerate missed one loan payment in June and more are expected. Evergrande's offices were the site of angry protests this week, and things could get even uglier on Monday when the company is likely to miss a
Aly Bear says the voices of young Indigenous voters are crucial in this federal election because they can help make sure the next government prioritizes Indigenous issues that have been continuously overlooked. The 30-year-old lawyer, who is of Dakota and Anishinaabe heritage and originally from Whitecap Dakota First Nation just south of Saskatoon, says she will vote in the upcoming federal election — and like other young Indigenous voters in Saskatchewan interviewed by CBC News, she expects mor
Ask David McDonald and Kim Cormier who's getting the most out of their new friendship, and they'll both point to themselves. "I feel very blessed to have met David," Cormier said from her home in the Skeleton Park neighbourhood of Kingston, Ont. "I'm the blessed one," corrected McDonald, sitting beside her. It was a chance encounter this past July that brought them together. McDonald, 46, who's been intermittently homeless since 2016, was passing Cormier's house on his e-scooter earlier this sum

ISLAMABAD (Reuters) -New Zealand's abrupt decision to pull out of their cricket tour of Pakistan has created "an unfortunate scenario" but the hosts know how to overcome such crises, the chairman of the country's cricket board Ramiz Raja said on Saturday. New Zealand abandoned the tour on the day of the opening fixture on Friday citing a government security alert, while England are also reconsidering their men's and women's team visits to Pakistan next month. The tour was due to start with the first of three one-dayers in Rawalpindi but New Zealand did not travel to the stadium.

Like many pickleball players before him, Pat Morrison's interest in the sport was sparked by asking a simple question: "What's that?" As he sat in a Halifax-area café sipping coffee with a friend eight years ago, he was told about a game that combines elements of tennis, table tennis and badminton. A few days later, he played for the first time. "The next day I was at the sporting goods store buying my first paddle," said Morrison, 64, now the vice-president of Pickleball Nova Scotia. "And the r

When the COVID-19 vaccine was made available in the North, Jessica Deleary wasn't sure she was going to get it. "I was kind of hesitant, just because of the speed with which it was created," said the resident of Dettah, a First Nations community just outside Yellowknife. "[W]e don't know exactly what's inside [it] and we don't know what's going to happen, what the long-term side effects are. And those were real, real concerns for me, especially because I was expecting." The mother of five asked
This pandemic election has changed some things for those in Ottawa-Gatineau gearing up to vote in person on Monday. Advanced polls are over and the deadline for mail-in voting has passed, but those who did participate in early voting will change how fast some ridings see results.

Here are answers to some questions: 1. Do
An ongoing shortage of school bus drivers across Ottawa is leaving parents scrambling to find other ways to get their children to class. The Ottawa Student Transportation Authority (OSTA), which contracts local bus companies to provide school transportation, has already announced nearly 90 long-term route cancellations for the city's public and Catholic school boards. On Friday alone, OSTA cancelled transportation for routes serving students at six schools. "It's heartbreaking. It's literally he
In a summer full of depressing travel news, Canada finally delivered Stewart Wingate, the CEO of London's Gatwick Airport, something he could celebrate. For the first time in almost a year, the blue star of Canada's third-largest carrier, Air Transat, was back at Gatwick as the airline resumed flights to the United Kingdom this week after a break during the pandemic. "To have the Air Transat planes back in the sky, it's incredibly important to us," Wingate told CBC in an interview from the rooft
Despite no longer being able to play instruments, Nicole Edwards didn't let her disease stop her from creating music, her friend and collaborator Andrea McColeman says. "She was constantly creating stuff in her head, and she would sing it to me," said McColeman. "Not just, here's the song and here's the words, but here's all the parts, and here's how it should feel, and here's the beat. She had a clear vision of what she wanted to create and was really good at communicating." Edwards, a musician
Amazon has been advertising to hire full-time employees for a new warehouse it's expected to soon open in Dartmouth, N.S., but a labour advocate is concerned that the delivery of packages will still be left to subcontracted workers he says are exploited by the e-commerce giant. The company, which bought the site earlier this year in the Burnside industrial park, hasn't publicly commented on its plans, but has been posting jobs at the package sorting facility, known as a "delivery station." "When
Canadians might go to bed Monday night without knowing the final results of the federal election. They might not even know who won by Tuesday morning. That's because this year, Elections Canada isn't counting hundreds of thousands of local special ballots — votes from Canadians living in their ridings who opted to vote by mail — until Tuesday. "The returning office has to go through a set of verifications before they even open a ballot envelope to put it in the box," said Elections Canada spokes

A Canadian-led team of scientists has concluded that tropical coral reefs that feed millions around the world have lost about half their ability to support human communities since 1950. "I don't think any of us expected the declines to be as big as we found," said Tyler Eddy of Memorial University, lead author of the paper published Friday in the journal One Earth. The paper is the first to tote up the cumulative effects of threats faced by tropical coral reefs from overfishing to pollution to c
