Chris Clay has visited Charlottetown's "tent cities" many times over the summer to make sure the people living there have the supplies they need to survive. Clothes, blankets, food, water — as well as clean needles and smoking supplies. And not just for clients of the Native Council of P.E.I, where Clay works as the co-ordinator of the Reaching Home project. "Anyone who's struggling or homeless at the moment, we supply them." Weeks ago, there were more than 20 people living in an encampment on t
Rishi Sunak, the underdog in the race to become Britain's next prime minister, said scrapping the Bank of England's independence would be a mistake that would scare off international investors. Asked about comments from leadership front-runner Liz Truss's team suggesting that the central bank's rate-setting independence should be reviewed, Sunak said: "That would be a massive mistake for our country, and international investors would really not look very kindly on it at all." Sunak was speaking at an event for Conservative Party members who are voting over the next few weeks to decide the country's next leader.

A controversial organization operating out of a historic Ottawa church has set up what it calls a "private security force," saying it was necessary because police weren't responding to its concerns quickly enough.

WASHINGTON (AP) — A flagship Democratic economic bill perched on the edge of House passage Friday, placing President Joe Biden on the brink of a back-from-the-dead triumph on his climate, health and tax goals that could energize his party ahead of November’s elections. Democrats were poised to muscle the measure through the narrowly divided House Friday over solid Republican opposition. They employed similar party unity and Vice President Kamala Harris' tie-breaking vote Sunday to power the meas
Republican politicians and candidates are distorting how a major economic bill passed over the weekend by the Senate would reform the IRS and affect taxes for the middle class. The “ Inflation Reduction Act,” which awaits a House vote after passing in the Senate on Sunday, would increase the ranks of the IRS, but it would not create a mob of armed auditors looking to harass middle-class taxpayers, as some Republicans are claiming. While experts say corporate tax increases could indirectly burden

It's an eyebrow-raising statistic: Essex County OPP says there's a 63 per cent increase in vehicle thefts compared to this time last year. And often, it involves people either leaving their keys or key fobs unattended in their vehicles. Const. Steven Duguay says organized crime is often tied to vehicle thefts. But outside of that, he says, they're typically "crimes of opportunity." "You'll have people walking through neighbourhoods at night and checking door handles on cars, looking for loose ch

Six years after Ontario ombudsman Paul Dube recommended a standardized, mandatory de-escalation training for police across the province, Ontario is no closer to making it happen, he said on Wednesday. "Progress has been painfully slow," Dube said at a news conference introducing his annual report, which outlines trends and investigations his office handled between April 1, 2021 and March 31, 2022. Mandatory de-escalation training is just one of the recommendations Dube made in a 2016 report issu
