WARSAW, Poland (AP) — Poland’s conservative ruling party leader pushed back Sunday against what he described as Western views on LGBTQ rights. Jaroslaw Kaczynski, the head of the Law and Justice party, described a theoretical situation in which a person named Wladyslaw, which is traditionally a male name, comes to work asking to be called Zosia, a traditionally female name. “And according to what we are recommended from the West that everyone should obey it,” Kaczynski said at a rally in Grudzia
Two sisters visiting Newfoundland unable to find a rental car have decided to go for the next best thing: renting a U-Haul moving van to tour the island. Gail Bridgeman, who lives in Australia, and Karen Burke of Ontario had their trip to Newfoundland booked for over six months before arriving. However, a mix-up with their rental car provider left them without a vehicle. "I thought everything was fine, then I got back some information saying our car was available months ahead of the expected dat
For the first time, a free shuttle bus service will ferry nature lovers to some of the most popular spots in Gatineau Park during the summer. Saturday marked the start of the pilot project, which will run every weekend until Aug. 28. Regular shuttles have operated every fall for a three-week period, and that will still continue. "We're making Gatineau Park more accessible, more equitable for people who either don't own a private car or don't have access to one or don't want to drive," said Tobi
JOHNSTOWN, Ohio (AP) — When President Joe Biden applauded a decision by Intel Corp. to build a $20 billion semiconductor operation on “1,000 empty acres of land” in Ohio, it didn't sit well with Tressie Corsi. The 85-year-old woman has lived on 7 acres of that land since she and her late husband, Paul, built a house there 50 years ago. They raised four children there and welcomed multiple generations of grandchildren and great-grandchildren, including some who lived right next door. “You can see
Marie-France Chouffeur, a 52-year old farm worker from a small town in central France, had never voted for the far-right before April's presidential election, when she backed National Rally (RN) leader Marine Le Pen against incumbent Emmanuel Macron. This month, she was one of many rural voters who helped make the anti-immigration, eurosceptic RN the second-biggest party in parliament, increasing its seats more than tenfold and denying Macron's centrists the absolute majority that would have helped ease through his planned reforms. Chouffeur says she was persuaded by Le Pen's focus on the cost of living, especially as petrol prices soared, and a feeling that Macron did not care about voters like her.

HALIFAX — All Nova Scotians aged 50 and older will be able to access second COVID-19 boosters by next week, though public health recommends people under 70 wait until the fall before getting another shot. The province decided to expand booster dose eligibility on July 8 to people aged 50 to 69 because some Nova Scotians had been asking for a fourth dose, deputy chief medical officer of health Dr. Shelley Deeks told reporters Monday. "Public health is recommending that people in this age group ac
LONDON (AP) — Former Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech will leave his role as technical and performance adviser at the Premier League club this week. Cech's departure was announced Monday in the latest change under Chelsea's new ownership, which recently said sporting director Marina Granovskaia is also moving on. “With the club under new ownership, I feel now is the right time for me to step aside,” said Cech, who spent 11 seasons as a player at Stamford Bridge before taking the advisory role in 201
One of the three people accused of killing an 18-year-old in Moncton has been sent for a psychiatric evaluation following a court appearance Monday. Riley Robert Sheldon Philips, 18, Hunter Nash England, 20 and Jerek John England, 23, are all charged with first-degree murder in connection with the April 25 shooting death of Joedin Lloyd Leger. All three were separately charged in mid-June. During separate appearances by phone in Moncton provincial court Monday morning, the original charges were
Protesters at a Montreal abortion rights rally in solidarity with Americans following the reversal of Roe v. Wade by the United States Supreme Court say they fear the decision will lead to a rise in anti-abortion sentiment in Quebec and the rest of Canada. Hundreds of Quebecers of all ages gathered outside the Montreal courthouse Sunday afternoon amid sweltering heat, carrying signs that said, "Solidarity and rage," "My body, my choice" and "Access to abortion is a human right."

HALIFAX — A high-profile sex scandal involving Prince Andrew is prompting a school in Dartmouth, N.S., to change its name. As of Aug. 1, Prince Andrew High School will be renamed Woodlawn High School, to reflect the name of the street and subdivision where the school is located. The school was named after Prince Andrew in 1960, the year he was born, but a recent sex scandal involving a 17-year-old girl and disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein led the school to distance itself from the royal.

MONTREAL — When Soufia Khmarou moved from Morocco to Montreal in 2009, she thought finding an affordable house for her and her three children was going to be easy. "I was not expecting this," Khmarou said in an interview Monday. "What we see, what we hear about Quebec … the reality doesn't reflect the ad." Khmarou appeared next to Manon Massé, a spokesperson with Quebec's second opposition party, Québec solidaire, who told reporters Montreal's affordable housing shortage is going to get worse if

NEW YORK (AP) — New Yorkers are casting votes in a governor’s race Tuesday that for the first time in a decade does not include the name “Cuomo” at the top of the ticket. Instead, the most prominent name for Democrats is Kathy Hochul, who was propelled into the governor’s office last year when former Gov. Andrew Cuomo resigned amid sexual harassment allegations. Hochul is hoping to become the first woman to win election to the New York governor’s office this fall, but first she needs to overcome

Despite pandemic restrictions, businesses were able to get more out of patio season over the past two years, as the city allowed restaurants to take over sidewalks while dining rooms were restricted or closed. "Now it's something people expect, you expect to go somewhere and sit out on a patio," said Home and Away Event and Marketing Manager Allana Jalkotzy. As indoor dining returns, the city has tweaked its patio guidelines to maintain streetside dining options, and allow for more accessibility
