The Indian government says there's been a rise in "hate crimes, sectarian violence and anti-India activities" in Canada and is warning Indian nationals in the country, including students, to be on the alert. The news release issued by the Indian Ministry of External Affairs on Friday did not say what prompted the warning. It said the ministry and Indian diplomats have brought several incidents to the attention of Canadian authorities. It also said the alleged perpetrators have not been brought t
After a tornado ripped through Bruce Pit off-leash dog park in 2018 the woodland is lush with new growth, and it provides a good example of what derecho-ravaged forests on other National Capital Commission (NCC) land will likely look like in a few years. But not all of the work done in Bruce Pit these last four years, or in NCC-owned Pine Grove and Pinhey Forest after the derecho in May, are ecological best practices, according to an urban forestry expert with the University of British Columbia.
New census data show the cost of a home in Windsor has doubled in five years, raising concerns about affordability. "When a housing prices double in a community and when you look at incomes and they're not doubling with housing prices, it's going to create challenges to get into the housing market for people across the region," said Frazier Fathers, a researcher, blogger and podcast host. The average value of a home in 2016 in the city of Windsor was $204,510, according to Statistics Canada, com

PARIS (AP) — Kylian Mbappe added another fine solo goal to his collection and Olivier Giroud moved closer to France's scoring record as the defending World Cup champions beat Austria 2-0 in the Nations League on Thursday. Mbappe skipped past three defenders before drilling in his 28th international goal in the 56th minute, before Giroud celebrated his recall by heading powerfully in from Antoine Griezmann's cross 10 minutes later to move onto 49 goals — two behind Thierry Henry's national record

Ottawa police say they are reviewing exactly what happened when a social media post about the murders of women this year was edited to remove the word "femicide." On Sept. 16, Ottawa police posted a bulletin about five recent homicides of women and how they shared similarities. "The women were all victims of femicide," the bulletin read. "In each case, men are facing charges." Then minutes later, the post was once again published on the force's social media feeds, but this time, the word "femici

Regina's amusement tax is only one city council vote away from dropping by 50 per cent next month. On Wednesday, the city's executive committee voted in favour of reducing the tax to five per cent from its current 10 per cent. The matter will now go to city council, which will meet again next week, for final approval. While its title might indicate otherwise, only commercial cinemas in Regina have been collecting the tax money on behalf of the city, with cinemagoers paying when buying their movi

The new programs, he said, will help “ensure we continue to offer
He's only been riding his motorcycle for a few months, but Marshall McNaughton has already seen how dangerous it can be. "A lot of people are distracted and are just trying to go to work," he says. "They're not thinking about the big picture. They just look at you as an object. When I'm going to work or just go for a little ride, you have to keep your head on a swivel because people are very dangerous." McNaughton has seen things that people do behind the wheel. "They're on their phones, changin
Russia launched referendums on Friday aimed at annexing four occupied regions of Ukraine, drawing condemnation from Kyiv and Western nations who dismissed the votes as a sham and pledged not to recognise their results. Ukrainian officials said people were banned from leaving some occupied areas until the four-day vote was over, armed groups were going into homes, and employees were threatened with the sack if they did not participate. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy said in a nightly address that the votes would be "unequivocally condemned" by the world, along with the mobilisation Russia began this week, including in Crimea and other areas of Ukraine occupied by Russia.

Mahsa Amini, 22, died last week following her arrest by Iran's morality police for "unsuitable attire" after she allegedly wore a hijab improperly.

HALIFAX — The RCMP’s response to the 2020 shooting rampage that left 22 Nova Scotians dead was far from perfect, but police did their best, the federal Justice Department said Friday. During the final day of public proceedings at the federal-provincial inquiry into the mass shooting, Lori Ward, general counsel for the federal Department of Justice, said there’s always room for improvement for all policing agencies. “No response to a critical incident of this magnitude could be perfect, but when
A special coin-sized keepsake has been minted in Winnipeg to honour residential school survivors and victims, and ensure Canadians never forget the intergenerational impacts of the schools.

On Monday, in what seems like a scene out of a science fiction movie, NASA will slam a spacecraft into a distant asteroid to see whether it can nudge its orbit — all in an effort to test a way to protect Earth from any potential future threats. The good news is that there's no need to panic: The asteroid, which is part of a binary — or two-bodied — system, is not a threat to our planet, and there are no known ones that are headed our way for at least the next 100 years. However, space agencies l
The women stand next to each other, holding their hair, and then they begin cutting it with scissors. On Thursday, women in Saskatoon joined women in Iran and around the world who are cutting their hair in public to protest the death of Mahsa Amini, 22, who died in custody after Iran's morality police arrested her for not adequately covering her hair. "People here are looking for justice," said Tiam Kazemi, who took part in the protest Thursday at the University of Saskatchewan campus. "They are
