A post-election report on the Conservative Party's 2021 campaign performance found leader Erin O'Toole had a strong start to the 36-day electoral contest but faltered at the finish because he was "over-managed" and "over-coached" by senior staff. The report, commissioned by the party brass and compiled by former Alberta MP James Cumming, concluded O'Toole didn't connect well enough with voters because he "wasn't himself" at key moments in the campaign. "The team should have let him be him rather
SURREY, B.C. — The Mounties called in explosive experts after a person walked into one of their offices in Surrey, B.C., with a grenade on Thursday. The RCMP say someone went to their Guildford office to hand over the device, saying it was found at a nearby park. The office and surrounding area had to be evacuated because it was unclear if the grenade was still functioning. Streets around the detachment were also closed as a precaution. Const. Sarbjit Sangha says in a news release that anyone wh

Conservative Party Leader Erin O’Toole said Thursday that he would meet with truckers on Friday as a trucker convoy rumbles toward Ottawa. O’Toole said the convoy was a symbol of the division in Canada and appealed to Canadians to show compassion toward truckers and those who haven’t been vaccinated.
Ottawa police say they have been in touch with leaders of a trucker convoy over weekend protest plans in the capital and are getting ready for several scenarios — including violence.
Conservative Leader Erin O’Toole says the unvaccinated truckers rolling into Ottawa is a “symbol” of the frustration they feel toward Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his pandemic policies like vaccine mandates. He also denounced individuals involved in the convoy who are pushing extremist ideas.

Public Health in Nova Scotia has stopped calling people to follow up on their COVID-19 cases and is asking them to instead fill in an online survey to help the province track symptoms and impairments that linger after three months. Ashley Harnish, a health services manager for Nova Scotia's health authority, said the website survey is a continuation of a phone-based survey they started doing last year. They want to hear from people who were diagnosed with COVID-19 three or more months ago, and a
ROME (Reuters) -Italy's parliament will make a fifth attempt to elect a new president on Friday, with party chiefs sounding more confident about finding a mutually acceptable candidate for the powerful role. Prime Minister Mario Draghi remains a contender, but his prospects have faded this week, with many lawmakers clearly reluctant to back him, partly because they fear any change to the government could trigger an early election. The Italian presidency comes with a seven-year mandate and has considerable power to resolve political crises that regularly batter the country, including appointing prime ministers and dissolving parliament.
OTTAWA — A convoy of truckers set to descend upon Ottawa to protest mandatory vaccinations is prompting police to prepare for violence and politicians to warn against escalating rhetoric linked to the demonstration. Ottawa police Chief Peter Sloly told a police services board meeting Wednesday that officers had been in been in contact with protest leaders who he said have been co-operative and shared their plans. But Deputy Chief Steve Bell voiced concern about "parallel groups" that intelligenc
When visitors approach the Islamic Cultural Centre in Quebec City's Sainte-Foy neighbourhood, they're no longer greeted by the large picture windows that used to face the street, before a deadly shooting five years ago. It's been replaced with a concrete wall with smaller windows, in case someone tries to ram the building with a truck. Security cameras face all the entrances, including the one a gunman used on Jan. 29, 2017, when he walked in and opened fire in a prayer room, killing six worship

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — South Carolina House members discussing critical race theory in public schools and what should — or shouldn't — come up in class promised Wednesday to take their time crafting new rules for teachers. The chairwoman of the House Education and Public Works Committee said she wasn't out for a “witch hunt for parents, teachers or students” but instead wanted to make sure children in South Carolina schools get the best education they can. Chairwoman Rita Allison led a two-hour d
It's been 77 years since prisoners at Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest Nazi concentration camp, were liberated near the end of the Second World War, but a Saskatchewan rabbi said people still don't understand the severity of the extermination camps.

Crowds cheered, waved flags and hoisted signs in Ontario and New Brunswick on Thursday as parts of a large national convoy of truckers headed for Ottawa to protest the federal government's COVID-19 vaccine mandate for cross-border drivers. The movement, which began in British Columbia days earlier, has been picking up participants across the country, with local truckers joining in at different points.
