Wendy Williams has postponed her postponed season debut.
As border regulations and travel rules for vaccinated Canadians travelling to the United States begin to ease, some wonder whether the dragged-out process is a signal that relations between the two countries are not altogether rosy. From quarrels over pipelines to concerns around cross-border trade, Mike Le Couteur looks at whether Canada is still on best terms with its closest neighbour.
Dozens of people are bound for Canada on a flight from Kabul, but the shuttering of the Canadian Embassy in Afghanistan has made leaving difficult for hundreds of Canadians who remain in the city.
Calgary police have a suspect in custody after four people were injured in a series of random attacks in the downtown core early Friday morning that sent three victims to hospital. The Calgary Police Service said a man was taken into custody around 4 p.m. local time. Supt. Cliff O'Brien said the early morning attacks were random. "We continue to believe that these attacks are random, and we have not identified a clear motive," O'Brien said prior to the arrest. There is no common theme among the
Healthcare systems across Canada are still very fragile from efforts needed to fight COVID-19, even as signs suggest a fourth wave is starting to recede, a top medical official said on Friday. Chief Public Health Officer Theresa Tam said it was important for health workers to get vaccinated and prevent hospitals from becoming overwhelmed. "Our health systems are still very fragile."

The Calgary Police Service said Conner Dery, 25, has been charged with aggravated assault and carrying a concealed weapon in relation to an assault at Fourth Street LRT Station.

DUBAI (Reuters) -An Iranian appeals court has upheld a one-year prison term for British-Iranian aid worker Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe on security offences, her lawyer was quoted by an Iranian news website as saying on Saturday. "The appeals court has approved the lower court's verdict without holding a hearing," attorney Hojjat Kermani told the Emtedad website. In April, an Iranian court sentenced Zaghari-Ratcliffe to a new term in jail on charges of propaganda against Iran's ruling system, just a month after she finished a prior five-year sentence.
As the province rolls out its new COVID-19 proof-of-vaccination QR code, some businesses are citing concerns over how they will police the measures and say there hasn't been enough support from the government. Brittany Rosen has more.

Premier Doug Ford's party is staking much of its re-election hopes on winning the votes of drivers in the Greater Toronto Area with a promise to forge ahead with the controversial Highway 413. The proposed new highway would cost at least $6 billion and would cut a 59-kilometre arc across the northwestern part of the GTA, linking the northern edge of Vaughan to where Mississauga, Brampton and Milton converge, at the interchange of highways 401 and 407. Top strategists with Ford's Progressive Cons
Four months into one of its worst COVID-19 outbreaks, Israel is seeing a sharp drop in new infections and severe illness, aided by its use of vaccine boosters, vaccine passports and mask mandates, scientists and health officials said. Israel was struck by its fourth coronavirus wave in June, fuelled by the fast-spreading Delta variant. Rather than imposing new lockdown measures, the government bet on a third booster dose of the Pfizer Inc/BioNTech vaccine for people age 12 and up, mandated face coverings and enforced use of a “Green Pass” - proof of vaccination, recovery from the illness or a negative test for the virus - at restaurants and other venues, even for children.
Widely-used statin drugs for lowering cholesterol may be linked to a slightly lower risk of dying from COVID-19, new data suggest. Researchers at Karolinska Institute in Sweden reviewed the medical records of nearly 1 million residents of Stockholm over the age of 45 between March and November 2020, roughly 18% of whom had been prescribed a statin, such as Pfizer Inc's Lipitor (atorvastatin) and Merck & Co's Zocor (simvastatin). The people prescribed statins had more risk factors for poor COVID-19 outcomes: they were older, more often male, had more medical conditions, lower education levels and less disposable income.
WATFORD, England (AP) — With a deft touch, a roll of the ball with his studs, a dummy and then a sublime finish into the bottom corner, Mohamed Salah produced another goal-of-the-season contender to headline Liverpool’s 5-0 win at Watford in the Premier League on Saturday. On a tough day for Claudio Ranieri in his first match as Watford manager, Salah delivered almost a replica of his stunning individual goal against Manchester City before the international break — and overshadowed a hat trick s
Advocates say Ontario's enhanced COVID-19 vaccine certificate system is not accessible for marginalized groups. The new system, announced on Friday, assumes people have smartphones, computers, printers, internet access, a data plan and the ability to navigate the provincial website, the advocates told CBC News on Saturday. According to representatives of three organizations, the Ontario government failed to consider the needs of people with disabilities, including those who are cognitively impai
Officials with Vancouver's Board of Parks and Recreation say they have been unable to pinpoint exactly what caused multiple fish to die in Stanley Park's Lost Lagoon. Following heavy rains in mid-September, dozens of carp, a bottom-feeding invasive species, began appearing at the surface of the water and along the shoreline. A statement from the Parks Board does not say how many carp died, but that necropsies of some of the fish did not reveal an exact cause. Officials believe that the die-off i
Iran's Revolutionary Guards founded the group in 1982 to export its Islamic Revolution and to fight Israeli forces that invaded Lebanon that same year. Hezbollah shares Tehran's Shi'ite Islamist ideology and sees Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei as its political and spiritual guide. Classified by the United States and other Western countries as a terrorist organisation, Hezbollah has a powerful military wing that it has acknowledged is armed and financed by Iran.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Air Force Gen. Jacqueline Van Ovost on Friday became only the second woman to lead one of the Pentagon's 11 so-called combatant commands, the multi-service organizations that spearhead U.S. military operations around the world. At a change-of-command ceremony at Scott Air Force Base in Illinois, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin applauded Van Ovost's historic rise, calling her a “legend of a leader,” a pilot by training and a pivotal player in the airlift of tens of thousands of e
The B.C. government has enacted changes to the B.C. Employment Standards Act, raising the general working age of youth in the province from 12 to 16, bringing the province in line with international child labour standards and other provinces in Canada. The changes, effective Friday, will provide better protections for youth, while also allowing regulators to define the types of employment and jobs appropriate for those under the age of 16, the province said in a statement. The amendments to the
BERLIN (AP) — The leader of outgoing German Chancellor Angela Merkel's party urged supporters Saturday to emulate the unity and discipline of their victorious opponents, declaring that it only can start winning again if members learn to stand together. Armin Laschet has indicated his readiness to step down as leader of the Christian Democratic Union, the bigger of two parties in Germany's center-right Union bloc, though it's not yet clear how and when a successor will be chosen. As the Union's c
A Montreal mother who stabbed her two young daughters, killing one of them, has been found not criminally responsible. In April of last year, the 35-year-old woman killed her 11-year-old daughter and injured her five-year-old in an apartment in the city's Villeray neighbourhood. She was charged with second-degree murder and attempted murder. The judge's ruling on Friday was not a surprise. Last week, she announced the woman would not stand trial due to her mental state. Psychiatrists for the Cro
