CANBERRA, Australia (AP) — Australia’s shift to nuclear-powered submarines will assure its South Pacific neighbors of its commitment to regional security, Britain's Minister of State for the Indo-Pacific said Monday. Australia will announce in March what type of submarine powered with U.S. nuclear technology it wants to build under a deal with the United States and Britain revealed in September last year.

The Canadian dollar weakened to a one-week low against its U.S. counterpart on Monday, as anti-lockdown protests in China weighed on investor sentiment and data showed Canada's current account balance swinging to a deficit. Stocks and the price of oil, one of Canada's major exports, suffered a broad sell-off as rare protests in major Chinese cities against the country's strict zero-COVID-19 curbs hit growth expectations in the world's second-largest economy. U.S. crude prices fell 2.6% to $74.31 a barrel, while the Canadian dollar was trading 0.6% lower at 1.3458 to the greenback, or 74.31 U.S. cents, after touching its weakest level since Nov. 21 at 1.3473.
A U.S. judge in California on Monday allowed litigation against Alphabet Inc's Google to proceed as a consumer class action of 21 million individuals who accuse the company of violating U.S. anti-competition laws in how it runs its Google Play app store. U.S. District Judge James Donato said in a 27-page order that the plaintiffs had established the legal elements of "commonality" and other factors to form a class action that alleges anticompetitive business practices. The class members are Google Play Store individual consumers in 12 states, including Ohio, Michigan and Georgia, in addition to American Samoa, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
A small business owner in Corner Brook is warming hearts and hands with her winter clothing drive. Michelle Payne of Fox's General Store has set up a donation rack in her shop where anyone can come in and get a winter coat or a pair of mittens for free. The community support has been heartwarming, said Payne — but it's also sad. "It's great on my side to see that it's helping people and that it's doing well for what I intended it to do," Payne said. "It's also really sad to know that so many in
Russell and Miles are a father-and-son Norwich Terrier combo of fun. And today? Why there’s fresh snow! The first of the season! It’s November 16, 2022, and we're here in Ottawa, Canada’s capital city. The weather is mild, the snowflakes are fluffy and it’s time for some puppy-play! Although Russell hasn’t seen snow in at least six months, at the grand age of three, he has seen that many winters so far. In fact, Russell came into the world in wintertime and for a while, he must have thought this frozen world was all there was. What a surprise he must have had as the snow began to melt and the flowers began to bloom after many months of cold and dark. Ah, but that’s another story. Today, Russell gets to be the experienced gentleman, hesitating only a brief moment before bravely plunging forth into the white stuff. On the other hand, Miles has never seen such a wonder before. His four-month-old world has been transformed overnight. Let’s freshly discover it ourselves, right along with him … and his dad, as they step out of the doorway and into icy-cold adventure!
Construction was expected to wrap this year on a Port Hastings, N.S., roundabout that will welcome drivers to Cape Breton from the Canso Causeway, but the project has been delayed while engineers rework the design to ease local concerns. "We've changed things a little bit from the original idea and we've added some scope which will address some local concerns," said Keith Boddy, senior highway design engineer with the Nova Scotia Department of Public Works. "Safety has been an issue. You know, t
AL RAYYAN, Qatar — Alphonso Davies scored against Croatia on Sunday to give Canada its first-ever goal at the men's World Cup. The goal came 67 seconds into the game. Canada's goalkeeper Milan Borjan set up the play with a long goal kick that found Cyle Larin down field. Larin headed the ball to Tajon Buchanan on the right flank. A cross from Buchanan then found Davies flying through the air and the Bayern Munich star headed the ball past Croatian keeper Dominik Livaković to give Canada a 1-0 le
European fashion house Balenciaga is facing stiff backlash over a recent holiday campaign that some say sexualized children. Top brand ambassador Kim Kardashian said she's so upset that she is re-evaluating her relationship with the company.
AL RAYYAN, Qatar — Croatia booted Canada out of the World Cup on Sunday, then kicked it when it was down. While the Canadians still have one game left to play in Group F, Sunday's 4-1 loss to Croatia ended their hopes of advancing to the knockout round. John Herdman's men will go home after facing No. 22 Morocco on Thursday. They will hope to leave on a winning note. But at 0-2-0 at the bottom of their group, the 41st-ranked Canadians can finish with no more than three points and cannot catch Mo
TORONTO — Excitement and jubilation after Canada scored its first-ever goal at the Men's World Cup gave way to dismay after Croatia came back with a string of goals to end the team's hopes of reaching the tournament's knockout round. Fans initially screamed, jumped out of their seats and embraced each other at a sold-out watch party in downtown Toronto Sunday as Alphonso Davies scored the historic goal. The star winger and Bayern Munich player headed the ball home to give Canada an initial 1-0 l

NEW YORK (AP) — “Gaslighting” — behavior that's mind manipulating, grossly misleading, downright deceitful — is Merriam-Webster's word of the year. Lookups for the word on merriam-webster.com increased 1,740% in 2022 over the year before. But something else happened. There wasn't a single event that drove significant spikes in curiosity, as it usually goes with the chosen word of the year. The gaslighting was pervasive. “It’s a word that has risen so quickly in the English language, and especial

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — President Joe Biden on Monday called on Congress to pass legislation to intervene and block a railroad strike before next month’s deadline in the stalled contract talks. Biden said a tentative agreement approved in September provided a pay raise for workers, health care benefits and a better leave policy. But talks have since stalled. Four rail unions are back at the table after rejecting their deals with the railroads, trying to work out new agreements before the Dec. 9 deadl
