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
Actor Ashley Bryant, starring in Donald Shebib’s Nightalk, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), is celebrating the opportunity to “push the envelope” in terms of women exploring their own sexuality in films.

Araújo damaged a tendon in his right thigh, the club said, during Uruguay’s 1-0 loss to Iran on Friday. The defenders were examined by B
Powerful winds from post-tropical storm Fiona blasted Sydney, Nova Scotia, as the storm made landfall. Arlene Grafilo had to take shelter at a local hockey arena with her husband and two children after a tree crashed down on the duplex where they live, trapping them in the basement apartment.
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.
In small coastal communities along the eastern shore of Nova Scotia, people are tying down their boats and hauling them into dry dock in hope they won’t be damaged by hurricane Fiona. In Petit-de-Grat, on Cape Breton island, friends were helping one another as the province faced a hurricane that could bring a storm with winds gusting over 100 kilometres per hour.
A four-day Bay of Fundy expedition earlier this month was life-changing for one Wolastoqey youth. "If I didn't get on that ship I wouldn't have gotten the opportunity to do everything I did on there," said Korey Lyons, from Sistansisk (St. Mary's First Nation), near Fredericton. "I just never seen the water the same." The 20-year-old joined three other Wolastoqey youth aboard the Polar Prince as part of a research voyage held by the Students on Ice Foundation. The Wolastoqey cohort boarded the 7
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
MONTREAL — Fiona came as advertised in eastern Quebec, with the post-tropical storm bringing flooding, damage and debris to Îles-de-la-Madeleine and Gaspé regions Saturday. Premier François Legault told a briefing in Quebec City that so far there have been no deaths or injuries reported due to the dangerous storm that has caused considerable damage in Atlantic Canada. Îles-de-la-Madeleine was the hardest hit part of Quebec, where a state of emergency was declared Friday evening and will remain i
A man and a woman arrested a year ago for allegedly feeding coyotes in Vancouver's Stanley Park have been charged with four offences under the Wildlife Act and must abide by specific bail conditions as their case winds its way through provincial court.

HALIFAX — High winds knocked out power in thousands of homes in Nova Scotia and P.E.I. Friday night as people in Atlantic Canada began feeling the wrath of post-tropical storm Fiona. Environment Canada said the storm is already battering Atlantic Canada and eastern Quebec with heavy rainfall and "powerful hurricane-force winds" that will continue into Saturday. By 10 p.m., more than 14,000 homes and businesses in Nova Scotia had been plunged into darkness. Most of the outages were reported in th
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
MONTREAL — The question of Quebec independence has been put on the back burner during Quebec's election campaign, but Parti Québécois Leader Paul St-Pierre Plamondon is fighting to secure a place for it — and his party — after the Oct. 3 vote. St-Pierre Plamondon, whose once-strong party has been relegated to last place in the polls, invoked the independence question during the final leaders debate on Thursday, making a direct appeal to sovereigntists who jumped ship to the Coalition Avenir Queb

A federal judge dismissed a lawsuit by Arizona Republican Party Chair Kelli Ward to block a subpoena by the congressional panel probing the Jan. 6, 2021, U.S. Capitol attack, clearing the way for the committee to access her phone records. Earlier this year, the panel said it had issued subpoenas to people who had knowledge of or participated in efforts to send false "alternate electors" to Washington for then-President Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election. Ward, a former Arizona state senator and chair of the state Republican Party, was among them.

OTTAWA — South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol says Canada is a natural match for boosting the production of electric vehicles, as both countries try to contain the risk of a more aggressive China.
