ISTANBUL (AP) — Sebastian Coates waited years to score his first Champions League goal but only 12 minutes for the next one, a near-exact copy. The Sporting Lisbon captain scored two headers in almost identical circumstances and won a penalty for good measure, as he led his team to a 4-1 win against Besiktas in the Champions League on Tuesday. Uruguayan defender Coates was left unmarked in front of goal to head in when Pedro Goncalves' corner was flicked on by Goncalo Inacio at the near post in

"We're putting up a tremendous amount of money, so are the feds. Now, we have to talk to Stellantis." Ford, who wants to see Stellantis twin its

FREDERICTON — New Brunswick's six Wolastoqey chiefs are calling on the province's new commissioner on systemic racism to take a stand against the provincial government's ban on land acknowledgments. Last week the province ordered government employees to stop referring to unceded or unsurrendered lands when speaking at public meetings. Attorney General Hugh Flemming said the directive was in response to a lawsuit filed last year by the Wolastoqey communities claiming ownership of more than 60 per
OTTAWA — A senator resigned Monday from the upper chamber's biggest parliamentary group, before a hearing took place to consider kicking her out. Sen. Marilou McPhedran resigned from the Independent Senators’ Group (ISG) because she did not think she would receive a fair hearing. McPhedran says in a resignation letter to the ISG secretariat that the hearing “seems preordained in its negative outcome for me.” A hearing set up to consider expelling her was set up after she sent an email in Septemb

Penny Olscamp would often play football with her grandfather before he passed away. Frankie MacLellan has played catch with her two brothers for as long as she can remember. And Cordelia Harcourt, well, she just likes to tackle people. "It makes me feel really strong," Harcourt said. Whatever their reasons for deciding to play tackle football in a league dominated by boys, the three girls — all between the ages of 13 and 15 — have become a welcome and valuable part of the Charlottetown Privateer
BRUSSELS/LUXEMBOURG (Reuters) -Poland's prime minister came under repeated criticism during a tense debate in the European Parliament on Tuesday, with the EU's chief executive telling Warsaw that its challenge to the supremacy of EU law would not go unpunished. Poland's relations with the European Union, already badly strained, took a big knock last week when its Constitutional Tribunal ruled that elements of EU law were incompatible with the Polish constitution.
JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) — The foreign ministers of Malaysia and Indonesia expressed concern Monday that Australia’s plan to obtain nuclear-powered submarines may increase the rivalry of major powers in Southeast Asia.

DETROIT (AP) — As an American leader, Colin Powell’s credentials were impeccable: He was national security adviser, chairman of the Joint Chiefs and secretary of state. But his legacy as the first Black person in those roles is murkier, with some African Americans saying that his voice on their behalf could have been louder. Powell, who died Monday of COVID-19 complications, spent 35 years in the Army and rose to political prominence under Republican presidents Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush an

The Transportation Safety Board (TSB) said the Canadian Pacific Railway train contained 200 cars, all of them carrying potash. The fertilizer is not considered a dangerous good. CP said the derailment happened at around 5 a.m. CST Saturday and there were no injuries or public safety concerns. The TSB sent an investigator on Saturday and said
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's new government is set to impose higher taxes on Canadians, which will help fund some campaign promises but are not broad enough to also start paying down the country's record levels of debt, leaving Canada vulnerable to the next economic crisis, analysts say. The high level of indebtedness could limit Canada's ability to manage long-term challenges that require massive government funding, like transitioning from a fossil fuel-reliant economy to a green one. A far higher debt-to-GDP ratio post-pandemic means Canada has far less wiggle room to respond to the next crisis, be it economic, trade, climate or health-related, analysts say.
