A blanket of snow falls on a yard in northern Ontario.
Flossey is living a wonderful life on a beautiful farm in Millbrook, Ontario. It's what is knows an "ethical farm" where cows have space to roam and graze instead of being kept indoors for most of their lives. Flossey's farm has vast expanses of lush, green grass, rolling hills, ponds full of fresh water, and forested areas for shade. This is life as it should be for these gentle creatures. Dave is a farm hand who often helps out with some of the chores and animal care. He decided to take a break on this warm, summer day and he took a seat on the hill overlooking the pasture.

With COVID-19 hospitalizations in Canada still threatening to overwhelm the health-care system, officials hope two antiviral treatments could help ease the strain. A new study published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal suggests the antiviral medication remdesivir could have a "modest but significant effect'' on COVID-19 patient outcomes, including decreasing the need for mechanical ventilation by approximately 50 per cent. Billed as the largest single-country trial of remdesivir repor

WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. Bernie Sanders suggested Tuesday that he'd support primary challengers against Democratic colleagues Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema, further intensifying a political battle pitting members of President Joe Biden's party against one another. Sanders told reporters that he thinks "there is a very good chance” that Manchin, a West Virginia Democrat, and Sinema, a Democrat from Arizona, could face challenges in their states' Democratic primaries. He said home-state voters woul

Ron DeSantis that would prohibit public schools and private businesses from making white people feel “discomfort” when they teach students or train employees about discrimination in the nation's past received its first approval Tuesday.

TORONTO — Ontario Premier Doug Ford says the province is set to make an announcement later this week about reducing COVID-19 restrictions. He told Ottawa radio station CFRA today that he hates putting the public health measures in place and that there will soon be some positive news on that front.

BRIGHTON, England (AP) — Winning the Premier League title is looking more unlikely for Chelsea each passing week. After a 1-1 draw at Brighton on Tuesday, the European champions soon might have to start looking over their shoulder in the race for Champions League qualification. Chelsea's winless run in the league stretched to four games after Brighton defender Adam Webster's powerful header from a corner in the 60th minute canceled out the opening goal by Hakim Ziyech in the 29th.

CALGARY — A sentencing hearing for a Calgary man convicted of second-degree murder for killing his girlfriend's three-year-old daughter has been further delayed. Justin Bennett was convicted last year in the beating death of Ivy Wick. She was injured on Sept. 27, 2017, and died in hospital of head and brain injuries eight days later. An autopsy revealed she suffered blunt force trauma, which prompted homicide investigators to take over the case. Bennett was charged a year later following a confe
