Ukrainian refugees are doing their best to get on with their lives after arriving in Windsor, Ont., but say they are facing challenges after fleeing their homeland following Russia's invasion of the country. Daria Yepifanova fled Ukraine on March 8 with her mother Natalya and a one-year-old baby, about two weeks after Russia first invaded.

Residents of Hay River, N.W.T., were able to return to town as of 6 p.m. Sunday, but the mayor warns that some areas are still without power, water and sewer services, and road access.

Health Department officials were aware that older people were among the most vulnerable to COVID-19, yet officials failed to give specific instructions to long-term care centres, Géhane Kamel said in her new report.

MILAN (AP) — AC Milan’s lengthy wait could be almost over. Second-half goals from Rafael Leão and Theo Hernández saw Milan beat Atalanta 2-0 on Sunday and it now only needs one point from its final match to secure its first Serie A title since 2011. The Rossoneri could even clinch the title earlier if defending champion and fierce rival Inter Milan fails to win at relegation-threatened Cagliari later Sunday. Milan, which moved five points clear of Inter and has a better head-to-head record, play
