An exclusive clip from the new drama 'Wild Indian'
Brazilian-American filmmaker Alexandre Moratto brought his poignant, compelling and heartbreaking film 7 Prisoners to the 2021 Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), which shines a light on modern-day human trafficking and enslavement.
Alexandre Boulerice admits that his is a lonely position. Boulerice, in the Montreal riding of Rosemont–La Petite-Patrie, is one of those rare candidates who routinely and significantly outperforms their party. In 2019, when the NDP got just 11 per cent of the vote in Quebec, Boulerice won more than 42 per cent in his riding. That personal popularity has helped him to win three elections — possibly a fourth — and survive the collapse of the NDP in Quebec. His riding is single orange dot in a sea
Michelle Hewitt can't contain her frustration. The co-chair of Disability Without Poverty, a national movement dedicated to securing a federal disability benefit for low-income Canadians with disabilities, is discouraged that important issues have been ignored during the federal election campaign. That's despite the fact that the disability community represents more than 20 per cent of the Canadian population — more than six million potential voters. Financial inequality is at the top of their l
The father of a fisherman missing at sea is asking boats from Southern Labrador and Northern Newfoundland to join the search effort for his son and a second crew member. The two-person crew aboard Island Lady was expected to land in Mary's Harbour around 5:00 p.m. on Friday. Around 6:30 p.m that evening, Dwight Russell checked his son Marc's Facebook Messenger account to see whether it showed him active and online. "I usually checks with that account every day just to make sure he's home," he sa
Authorities placed the area around the US Capitol under heavy security ahead of a rally on Saturday in support of rioters imprisoned after the violent Jan. 6 insurrection. (Sept. 18)
There wasn't an empty seat in a makeshift courtroom at Regina's Conexus Arts Centre Friday, the last day of arguments in a sentencing hearing for a teenager convicted of fatally stabbing a 16-year-old in 2018. Following final arguments from the Crown and defence lawyers, the teen offered an apology to Erica "Eliza" Hill O'Watch's family and friends watching from the gallery. "I'm not asking you to forgive and forget because I know what you see when you look at me," the now 18-year-old told the r

VANCOUVER — The Vancouver Whitecaps must punch above their weight Sunday in Denver against the Colorado Rapids in a bid to climb into the Major League Soccer playoff picture. Vancouver (7-8-8) ended a four-game win streak with a 1-0 loss to Portland last week. The Whitecaps rank ninth in the Western Division four points back of LAFC in the final playoff spot. Colorado (12-4-7) sits comfortably third in the West with 43 points. The Rapids have just a single home loss this season, while Vancouver
Ontario is reporting 821 new cases of COVID-19 today, and 10 new deaths from the virus. The province says the deaths include someone under 19 -- a 10-year-old child whose death was reported by health authorities in Waterloo Region on Friday. The region's top doctor said Friday that the child had underlying health conditions and had been hospitalized before their death. Health Minister Christine Elliott says today's new cases include 621 people who are not fully vaccinated against COVID19 or whos
Greece opened a new holding camp for migrants on Saturday on the island of Samos, close to Turkey, and said other new facilities would follow in coming months as it tightens migration policy. Aid groups said the new facility, which will house asylum seekers and people to be deported, looked more like a jail with its fence topped by barbed wire. The Mediterranean country was at the frontline of Europe's migration crisis in 2015 and 2016 when a million refugees fleeing war and poverty from Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan arrived, mainly via Turkey.
ATLANTA (AP) — A disaster relief organization founded by actor Sean Penn is boosting Georgia's drive to inoculate people against the coronavirus, though some of its pop-up vaccine clinics have struggled to attract people. CORE has offered COVID shots at hundreds of sites in big and small communities around the state, including schools, farmers' markets and meat plants. But it has had few takers at some locations — a likely reflection, at least in part, of skepticism about vaccines in Georgia. Th
The P.E.I. Association of Newcomers to Canada is urging Islanders to support Afghans arriving in the province. As of last Sunday, more than 2,200 refugees from Afghanistan had arrived in Canada. According to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada, those refugees have relocated to all 10 provinces. Craig Mackie, the association's executive director, said government-assisted refugees come from dire situations. "You know, they've been shot at, they've possibly been bombed," he said. "They've
TORONTO — Major League Soccer has fined Toronto FC defenders Kemar Lawrence and Chris Mavinga for their actions in TFC's 1-0 loss to Inter Miami on Tuesday. The MLS disciplinary committee found Lawrence guilty of failing to leave the field in a timely manner after being red-carded in the 37th minute. Mavinga was guilty of simulation/embellishment in the 48th minute. He went down clutching his face after Miami's Robbie Robinson raised his leg, trying to connect with a ball coming down. The leg di
A man was killed Friday evening after his vehicle struck the support of a train bridge on a secondary highway northeast of Edmonton. Morinville RCMP said a Mercedes sedan travelling westbound on Highway 633 at about 5:40 p.m. collided with the structure just east of the hamlet of Villeneuve, Alta., near Range Road 263. Bystanders who saw the collision got the driver out of the vehicle, which caught fire after the impact. The 42-year-old man from St. Albert, Alta., was pronounced dead by emergenc
Brooklin, Ontario (Reuters) -With the Canadian election in a dead heat two days before the Sept. 20 vote, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his Conservative rival implored supporters to stay the course and avoid vote splitting that could hand their opponent victory. Both men campaigned in the same seat-rich Toronto region on Saturday as they tried to fend off voter defections to the left-leaning New Democratic Party (NDP) and the populist People's Party of Canada (PPC), both of which are rising in polls. The latest Sondage Leger poll conducted for the Journal de Montreal and the National Post newspapers put the Conservatives one percentage point ahead of Trudeau's Liberals, with 33% over 32%.
Divers in the Philippines pulled plastic bags, drinks bottles and fishing nets from a coral reef on Saturday, joining an annual cleanup that aims to highlight the impact of garbage on the world's oceans. About a dozen divers cleared rubbish from the reef and nearby beaches as they marked World Cleanup Day in Batangas province, a popular spot for snorkelling and diving south of the capital, Manila. "For every fishing line or net that you remove, you could actually prevent a turtle from dying or getting caught in it or eating a plastic bag," organiser Carmela Sevilla told Reuters, holding up a mesh bag full of garbage.
The Calgary Fire Department says it responded to three fires in a close time frame early Saturday morning. Around 3:10 a.m., fire crews received a call for smoke in the 100 block of Rundlecairn Road — located in the northeast community of Rundle. Upon arrival, crews found the fire in a bedroom on the main floor of the house. Firefighters were able to hose the fire from outside the home while other crews worked their way into the house to fight the fire from the inside. One man was taken to hospi
Montreal police are investigating after an overnight altercation in downtown Montreal left one man in his 20s dead and another injured. The SPVM received a call at around 1:45 a.m. on Saturday, and found two victims near the corner of Sherbrooke and Mansfield Streets — steps away from McGill University. According to Montreal police spokesperson Véronique Dubuc, both men had suffered what appeared to be upper-body injuries from a sharp object. A 23-year-old man was taken to hospital, and his deat
HALIFAX — Nova Scotia's Progressive Conservative premier has asked people who protested proof-of-vaccination policies outside the home of the province's chief medical officer of health to consider acting more like adults. Tim Houston released a video message over social media on Friday night about the small protest outside the Halifax home of Dr. Robert Strang earlier in the day. Houston says he would encourage those who carried out the protests to "grow up and think of others," and that there's
OTTAWA — The fourth wave of the COVID-19 pandemic is colouring some heated political debate in the final stretch of the federal election campaign. Justin Trudeau is touting the importance of getting vaccinated, while the NDP's Jagmeet Singh is criticizing the Liberal leader for failing to push harder for paid sick leave and proof-of-vaccination certificates. Conservative Leader Erin O'Toole, meanwhile, insists his party is running a safe campaign but will not say how many of his candidates are f
