Donald Trump's eldest son, son-in-law and then-campaign chairman met with a Russian lawyer shortly after Trump won the Republican nomination, in what appears to be the earliest known private meeting between key aides to the president and a Russian. Representatives of Donald Trump Jr. and Jared Kushner confirmed the June 2016 meeting to The Associated Press Saturday after The New York Times reported Saturday on the gathering of the men and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya at Trump Tower. Then-campaign chairman Paul Manafort also attended, according to the statement from Donald Trump Jr.
Wilfred Duncan moved into his friend's house on the Ashcroft Indian Reserve two weeks ago, only to watch the home burn down after the wildfire overwhelmed the community, destroying more than 30 buildings. Duncan is a retired forestry firefighter with 20 years of experience, but said the Ashcroft blaze was overwhelming. "There was no time to get scared," he said, speaking outside the evacuation services centre in Kamloops on Saturday.

A neighbour who rushed to the scene of a deadly fire in a Quebec seniors' residence on Sunday said he could hear trapped residents calling out before he turned the corner and saw the building in flames. "There were police officers running, firefighters too, the house was in flames," Terrebonne resident Nicolas Martel said in a phone interview. Martel said the rescue went quickly as police and firefighters ran in and out of the Oasis seniors' residence, carrying some residents and using ladders to reach those who were trapped on balconies.
There is no end in sight to the wildfires in British Columbia that have forced thousands of people from their homes and destroyed hundreds of square kilometres of land. Provincial officials say that more gusty winds and hot, dry conditions are in the weather forecast, meaning the number of people evacuated is likely to rise from the latest estimate of 7,000. "The situation around evacuation alerts and orders could be quite fluid," said Kevin Skrepnek, chief information officer for the BC Wildfire Service, on Sunday.
As heat warnings continue across much of Alberta, Calgary-based adventurer, author and filmmaker is urging campers to avoid having fires despite the temptation.

The drink not only quenched the sailors' thirst, spruce beer was credited in part for Cook's high success rate at preventing scurvy.

Zahra, 19 and Masomah, 20 -- known as the "Little Queens of Kabul" -- are members of the Afghan national women's cycling team. Two months ago they settled as refugees in the home of the Tour de France with their parents and three brothers. "In Afghanistan men think unsuitable for a woman to ride a bike, and the Taliban have banned us from sport," says Masomah in accomplished English.
A Marshall Islands-based military expert has cast further doubt on claims that a blurry photograph shows famed US aviatrix Amelia Earhart alive in the territory in 1937. The fate of the legendary American and her navigator Fred Noonan during their round-the-world flight is one of aviation's greatest mysteries, and has fascinated historians for decades. Earhart and Noonan vanished on July 2, 1937 after taking off from Lae, Papua New Guinea, and the prevailing belief is that they ran out of fuel and ditched their twin-engine Lockheed Electra in the Pacific Ocean near remote Howland Island.
Three Indian actors sharing a surname have ruled Bollywood box offices across three decades, but the success of wrestling blockbuster "Dangal" means it's Aamir who's currently king of the Khans. Known as the "Khans of Bollywood", Aamir, Shah Rukh, and Salman have been the undoubted superstars of the Hindi film industry since the mid-1990s, taking it in turns to reign supreme.
By Ethan Lou CALGARY, Alberta (Reuters) - Canadian lender Desjardins is considering no longer funding energy pipelines, a spokesman said on Saturday, citing concerns about the impact such projects may have on the environment. Desjardins, the largest association of credit unions in North America, on Friday temporarily suspended lending for such projects and may make the decision permanent, spokesman Jacques Bouchard told Reuters by telephone. Dejardins, a backer of Kinder Morgan Canada Ltd's high-profile expansion of its Trans Mountain pipeline, has been evaluating its policy for such lending for months, Bouchard said.

The British national already runs a surf school at Kokrobite and has helped to bring surfing to Busua, near the border with Ivory Coast. "The greatest thing about surfing in Ghana is that we have uncrowded world-class waves that appeal to the beginner and intermediate market," he told AFP.
The prime minister said Saturday that Ottawa’s apology and reported $10.5 million compensation to Omar Khadr is about the former Guantanamo Bay inmate’s Charter rights, not about the details of the case.
By Harry Pearl SYDNEY (Reuters) - Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull is due on Sunday to inaugurate at a French shipyard work on a new fleet of submarines that will form the centerpiece of Australia’s defense strategy for decades to come. Australia selected French naval contractor DCNS in April 2016 to build its fleet of 12 submarines, ahead of other offers from Japan and Germany, sealing one of the world's most lucrative defense contracts. At a joint press briefing with French President Emmanuel Macron in Paris, Turnbull said he would open the project office at the DCNS Cherbourg shipyard.
The Mental Wellness Loft, a free space in Toronto's Leslieville neighbourhood open to the public as a creative sanctuary from the stresses of everyday life, is being forced to close its doors.

This was the case for Andy Huynh, 55, when his sister emailed him a CBC News story detailing how Canadian visa officials working in Southeast Asia helped bring tens of thousands of Vietnamese boat people to Canada. The story featured a photo of immigration officer John McEachern interviewing a group of teenagers at the Galang refugee camp in Indonesia in 1980.
Five decades after a contingent of barefoot, guitar-playing, mostly less-than-30-somethings transformed Queen's Park into utopia flowing with music and the smell of marijuana, a fiftieth anniversary love-in is set to take place at Trinity Bellwoods Park. The picnic of sorts is meant to be in the spirit of the so-called Summer of Love of 1967, when some 20,000 gathered in San Francisco at what's now considered the height of counter-culture — with similar gatherings taking place in various cities across Canada, including Toronto at Yorkville and not far from the steps of the provincial legislature. Bradley Foster remembers attending that first event with his parents when he was 11.
Parks Canada is raising public awareness and adding patrols to prepare for a potential spike in visitors this summer, as a new report shows a steady increase in bad behaviour at campgrounds and other sites. As part of Canada 150 celebrations, the agency is offering free access to parks and historic sites across the country through the Discovery Pass. A recently released evaluation of Parks Canada's law enforcement program shows park wardens are already stretched, as a growing number of patrons violate park rules by harassing wildlife, making too much noise or pitching a tent without a permit.
