VANCOUVER — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says Canada Border Services Agency will be the department that decides whether Iran's men's soccer team is allowed into the country for a game next month. Canada is set to host Iran in a friendly match in Vancouver on June 5, but controversy about the game has swirled and Trudeau said last week that the event was ill advised. Speaking to media in Vancouver on Tuesday, the prime minister said his view has not changed. "I've expressed my concern that I thi
When researchers at the University of Saskatchewan began to find bits of COVID-19 they couldn't identify earlier this month, they began to get curious. According to readings released on May 8, samples taken from Saskatoon's wastewater showed that 3.2 per cent were listed as "other lineages" and were not identified as the BA.2 variant of Omicron, which made up the vast majority of samples being taken (96.8 per cent). As a result, the researchers decided to send the mystery samples from Saskatoon

A rematch three years in the making is the most important game of the season so far for the Vancouver Whitecaps, says head coach Vanni Sartini. The club knows it must beat Cavalry FC in the second round of the Canadian Championship on Wednesday in order to advance — and Vancouver's record against the Canadian Premier League side isn't exactly positive. The 'Caps were heavily favoured when they came up against Cavalry in the 2019 tournament. But Calgary stunned with a 2-1 aggregate win, ousting t
Targeting unarmed civilians during war is 'always criminal' said Michael Newton, a law professor and former U.S. State Department official. There are dozens more war crimes trials to come out of the war between Ukraine and Russia, he said.

TOKYO (AP) — President Joe Biden faced a dilemma on trade in Asia: He couldn't just rejoin the Trans-Pacific Partnership that his predecessor had pulled the U.S. out of in 2017. Many related trade deals, regardless of their content, had become politically toxic for U.S. voters, who associated them with job losses. So Biden came up with a replacement. During Biden's visit to Tokyo, the U.S. on Monday planned to announce the countries that are joining the new Indo-Pacific Economic Framework. In th
Keri Lewis has a double insurance maze to navigate. Both her home and her workplace in Ottawa were hit hard by Saturday's storm, which ripped through parts of Ontario and Quebec, uprooting trees, cutting power to nearly 900,000 homes and leaving at least 10 people dead.

An hours-long power outage in the City of Summerside, P.E.I., over the weekend was caused by a transmission line failure. Power was out in much of the city for 2½ hours Sunday. The city owns and operates its own utility. "After investigation, it was identified to be a failure in the main transmission line that comes from Maritime Electric," said Coun. Bruce MacDougall. "It was a faulty insulator on the main line that feeds the city." MacDougall said in the event of an outage like Sunday's, the c

KUUJJUAQ, Que. — Daniel Gabois would usually be out hunting this time of year. Flocks of Canada geese have started to appear overhead in their V-formations, returning to nesting grounds in the northern Quebec region of Nunavik. That's the signal for him and many others in his hometown of Kuujjuaq to head out on the land.

TOKYO (Reuters) -Space is a key area of cooperation for Japan with the United States, its closest ally, amid heightened tensions with an increasingly assertive China, which itself aims to become a space power.

Japan has an extensive space programme, mainly focused on developing launchers and space probes.
