Liz Cheney is the vice chair of a U.S. House committee seeking to expose the truth behind former President Donald Trump's relentless efforts to stay in power after losing the 2020 election, and his role in fomenting the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. Cheney's determination to prevent Trump

Ontario is seeing far fewer forest fires this year than the 10-year average, and only a fraction of what it experienced last summer, when fires tore through a record amount of land in the province, according to the provincial government. There have been 179 fires so far this year, with 2,416 hectares of land burned, Evan Lizotte, a fire information officer with the Ministry of Natural Resources, said in a recent interview.

LANGLEY, B.C. — The Greater Vancouver Zoo says a "small number" of its wolves are unaccounted for after the animals were believed to have been released as a result of "malicious intent," but there is no danger to the public. The zoo says on its website that a number of wolves were discovered outside their enclosure in the morning and it's working with the B.C. Conservation Officer Service to "contain" the animals, while the Langley RCMP investigate what appears to be a case of unlawful entry and
Chief Mi'sel Joe says Miawpukek doesn't get as much snow as it used to. Joe said he used to be on the fence about whether climate change was having a tangible impact on the environment surrounding Miawpukek, a Mi'kmaw community on Conne River on the south coast of Newfoundland, but not anymore. "Things I've seen in the last few years have really convinced me that the world is changing as we know it," he said in an interview with CBC News. Joe said when he grew up, the ice was thick enough to dri

Justice Minister Tyler Shandro says the proposed model would have 65 to 85 community detachments that would have a minimum of 10 police officers
EDMONTON — The sole city councillor to vote in support of a gondola across Edmonton's river valley says the outcome may have been different if there were better Indigenous consultation. A recommendation that a city agreement with Prairie Sky Gondola be terminated passed 12 to one on Monday. Karen Principe, councillor for Ward Tastawiyiniwak, was the lone vote against nixing the project. But she says more meaningful consultations with Indigenous people were needed before signing the land-lease ag
Back in the U.S., days after the FBI search for top secret files at Mar-a-Lago, Donald Trump's potential legal problems seem to keep piling up. The former president now claims authorities seized executive-privileged material and is demanding them back. While a spokesperson has said that Trump had a standing order that documents taken to his Florida home were deemed "declassified." As Jennifer Johnson reports, those claims aren't holding up.

The Nature Trust of New Brunswick is urging the public to stop creating rock piles on a coastal nature reserve.

The 70-year-old man who police shot in downtown Windsor Monday bought a machete from a pawn shop not far from the incident. That's according to Valentin Petre, who owns the Rabbit Hole pawn shop near the corner of Wyandotte Street and Ouellette Avenue. Petre says he gave investigators video of a man who appears to be Allan Andkilde, the victim in the shooting, buying the item from his store. "He's been here a few times," Petre said.

This story goes way back - in a chaotic but fantastic town there was once a traveler, a robbery, and a chance to improve the lives of so many people.
One-quarter of front-line employees surveyed at Canada's border agency in March 2020 said they had directly witnessed a colleague discriminate against a traveller in the previous two years. Of these respondents, 71 per cent suggested the discrimination was based, in full or in part, on the traveller's race, and just over three-quarters of respondents cited the traveller's national or ethnic origin. The figures are drawn from a survey that was conducted as part of an internal Canada Border Servic
