KYIV (Reuters) -Ukraine hopes to secure widespread international support for banning Russian and Belarusian athletes from the Paris Olympics in 2024 due to Moscow's invasion, the sports minister said on Tuesday. Vadym Huttsait, 51, a former Olympic fencing champion, told Reuters the idea of allowing Russian and Belarusian athletes to compete as neutrals was unacceptable. Last week the International Olympic Committee said it was open to including Russian and Belarusian athletes as neutrals at the Games and opened a door to them competing in qualifiers, prompting an international campaign by Kyiv to keep them out.
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Long-haul carrier Emirates successfully flew a Boeing 777 on a test flight Monday with one of its two engines entirely powered by so-called sustainable aviation fuel. This comes as carriers worldwide try to lessen their carbon footprint.

TORONTO — The Ontario Nurses' Association started negotiating a new contract Monday for hospital nurses and the union is planning to take its push for higher wages beyond the bargaining table. The nurses, and other broader public sector workers, have been subject for three years to a wage restraint law known as Bill 124, which capped increases at one per cent a year. Bernie Robinson, the interim president of the ONA, said the last contract left nurses feeling disrespected and devalued. "Safe to

Mahmoud Abbas spent much of his life before becoming Palestinian president in the shadow of Yasser Arafat, long the figurehead of the Palestinian cause, but he has never secured the same status in the role and has not brought his people closer to statehood. Based in the West Bank city of Ramallah, the 87-year-old has seen his role further eclipsed by the rise of Hamas, the Islamist group that has controlled Gaza since 2006, and by the expanding Jewish settlements on occupied West Bank land. U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken visited him on Tuesday, after repeating Washington's support for a two-state solution.
Shares in Indian tycoon Gautam Adani's conglomerate plunged again on Wednesday as a rout in his companies deepened to $86 billion in the wake of a U.S. short-seller report, with the billionaire also losing his title as Asia's richest person. Wednesday's stock losses saw Adani slip to 15th on Forbes rich list with an estimated net worth of $75.1 billion, below rival Mukesh Ambani, the chairman of Reliance Industries Ltd who ranks ninth with a net worth of $83.7 billion.

ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Trying to sell France to Emirati investors Monday, France's finance minister highlighted what he described as the business-friendly overhaul of President Emmanuel Macron — while sidestepping ongoing protests back home over a planned pension overhaul. Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire's trip to Abu Dhabi, the United Arab Emirates' capital, comes as over 1 million people marched days earlier to protest a plan by Macron's government to increase the retirement ag
OTTAWA — The commission investigating the federal government’s use of the Emergencies Act to quell the trucker protests last winter in Ottawa has asked for more time to complete its report. A government source, who was granted anonymity to discuss matters not yet public, says the order-in-council establishing the Public Order Emergency Commission will be modified to change the Feb. 6 deadline to submit its report to the government. The source, however, says the commission will abide by the deadl
There have been at least three cases of attempted title fraud in B.C. since 2019, according to the province's land title authority. Title fraud is a complex real estate crime in which fraudsters purporting to be homeowners attempted to sell properties they did not own. The Land Title and Survey Authority of British Columbia (LTSA) confirmed one home was allegedly fraudulently sold in 2019, followed by another in 2020. In 2021, a third attempt was thwarted before the transaction was finalized. Bo
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden informed Congress on Monday that he will end the twin national emergencies for addressing COVID-19 on May 11, as most of the world has returned closer to normalcy nearly three years after they were first declared. The move to end the national emergency and public health emergency declarations would formally restructure the federal coronavirus response to treat the virus as an endemic threat to public health that can be managed through agencies' normal author
BALTIMORE (AP) — Greeted by the cheerful blare of a train horn, President Joe Biden stood Monday before a decrepit rail tunnel that he estimated he's been through 1,000 times — fearing for decades it might collapse. “For years, people talked about fixing this tunnel,” Biden told a crowd in Baltimore. “Back in the early '80's, I actually walked into the tunnel with some of the construction workers. ... This is a 150-year-old tunnel. You wonder how in the hell it's still standing." “With the bipar

MADRID (AP) — Spanish club Valencia sacked coach Gennaro Gattuso on Monday following the team's poor results. Valencia said in a statement it reached a mutual agreement with Gattuso to end their contract. The announcement came after a 1-0 loss at Valladolid in the Spanish league on Sunday. The club has won only one of its last 10 league games, before the World Cup. The latest defeat dropped Valencia to 14th place, one point above the relegation zone. Its only two wins this year came in the Copa
A prime waterfront area in east Windsor could become city property, if council decides to buy or expropriate the lots. The property on Riverside Drive at the foot of Lauzon Road is currently vacant. In September, Coun. Jo-Anne Gignac asked administration to provide a report as soon as possible on how "to move forward" with acquiring the property. "We're always looking to acquire parkland which will allow access to the river," said Gignac. The property is comprised of four different lots, three o
ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Greece’s main opposition party said Tuesday that it won't participate in parliamentary votes until a general election is held later this year, in response to the alleged wiretapping of senior officials by the state intelligence service. “We will not legitimize the legislative work of a government that is demonstrably ... deviating from democracy,” opposition leader Alexis Tsipras, who heads the left-wing Syriza party, told reporters. Allegations that politicians and journal
