Patients waiting for elective surgery at St. Clare's Mercy Hospital were turned away Monday due to a lack of available beds at the St. John's facility. "This was the result of a variety of factors, including the number of patients who presented at the emergency department, and the need to continue to provide inpatient care due to high acuity or unavailability of space at other facilities," an Eastern Health spokesperson said Wednesday. CBC News published a story earlier this month on capacity is
The Progressive Conservative Party of Manitoba concedes it gave leadership candidates erroneous information before October's election — but says the actual ballots were counted fairly and accurately. In a 209-page submission to Manitoba's Court of the Queen's Bench, the PC Party seeks to dismiss candidate Shelly Glover's application to declare the results of the Oct. 30 leadership race invalid and require the party to hold a new vote. Glover lost that race by 363 votes to Heather Stefanson, who

The Bank of Canada held its benchmark interest rate steady on Wednesday, noting that record high inflation is showing signs of cooling down. The central bank meets eight times a year to decide where to set its trend-setting interest rate, which impacts borrowers and savers on rates for mortgages, savings accounts, and more.

THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — A Dutch appeals court upheld Tuesday a lower court's decision to throw out a civil case against Israel's defense minister and another former senior military officer over their roles in a deadly 2014 airstrike. The Hague District Court ruled in January 2020 that the case against Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz and former air force commander Amir Eshel couldn't proceed because the men have “functional immunity from jurisdiction.” The Hague Court of Appeal said Tu

Climate change could cost Ontario's provincial and municipal governments up to $116 billion by the end of this century, according to a new report from the province's accountability officer. In a stable climate, the province's maintenance costs would be $10 billion a year, amounting to about $799 billion by 2100. But the report shows the changing climate could drive costs up dramatically. In the short term, the report found the effects of climate change will add about $6 billion to maintenance co
OTTAWA — The government has expanded a pilot that allows refugees to apply for permanent residency through conventional economic immigration streams by removing some of the barriers that would traditionally have precluded them. The minister hopes to see only a six-month window between the date a successful candidate submits their application and the day they can start working in Canada. The pilot is an expansion of a 2018 program that aimed to identify 10 to 15 skilled refugees in the Middle Eas
