HALIFAX — The race for the northern Nova Scotia riding of Cumberland-Colchester has been shaken up days ahead of Monday’s election after the NDP's 18-year-old candidate dropped out over an antisemitic tweet from 2019. Cumberland-Colchester was never a winnable riding for the New Democrats, who finished in fourth place in that district in 2019, Cape Breton University political scientist Tom Urbaniak said. And the riding was "leaning" Conservative, according to poll aggregator website 338Canada.co
The trend is clear: the wealthier your neighbourhood, the more likely you will be surrounded by trees. A CBC News analysis of data from the City of Montreal and Statistics Canada shows the higher the median income of a neighbourhood, the more extensive the tree cover. In other Canadian cities and beyond, researchers are tracking similar dynamics between green space and socioeconomic status, and looking for solutions to address the imbalance. "The general pattern is that wealthier areas — more pr
Lucas Fertuck says he remembers his dad Greg threatening his mom Sheree before the couple separated. "He said that he would shoot her between the eyes," Lucas said, testifying Wednesday at Saskatoon's Court of Queen's Bench, where his dad Greg Fertuck is on trial. Greg is accused of killing his estranged wife Sheree Fertuck, Lucas's mom, on Dec. 7, 2015 — the last day she was seen alive. The 51-year-old woman's body has never been found. Greg has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder. The la
WARNING: This story contains distressing details. Stephen Bernard's car is a rolling reminder of the recent discoveries of what is believed to be thousands of unmarked graves of Indigenous children on the land of former residential schools across the country. "I just wanted to do it to let people know what happened, you know, things are getting pretty quiet now. Nobody is talking about it," said Bernard. Bernard didn't want the conversation to stop about residential schools and the possible unma
Gas prices in Newfoundland and Labrador are on the rise for the third straight week, setting a new all-time high for the province. The Public Utilities Board approved an increase of 0.5 cents per litre of gasoline Thursday, meaning a litre of self-serve unleaded gas will cost no more than $1.551 on the Avalon peninsula. Thursday's prices broke the record of $1.548, set back on July 15. As usual, prices are higher in other parts of the province. The new maximum price for a litre of gas in western

Oakville, Ont., resident Nicole Lauermeier has considered herself a political centrist who supported Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau in the 2019 election and has since been a fan of the riding's member of Parliament Anita Anand. But in this year's advanced polling, the small business owner who said she's never voted Conservative decided to put an X beside the name of Kerry Colborne, the Tory party's candidate. "Here's to a Blue wave," she said. The number one reason Lauermeier decided to support t

Last year on Mother's Day, Darragh Kilkenny-Mondoux was escorted out of the Notre-Dame-des-Neiges cemetery by security along with her father and sister. The front gate was closed, but they had found a way in through a gap in the fence. Confronted by security, they were told they could be hit with a substantial fine if they were ever caught inside the cemetery again outside of opening hours. Kilkenny-Mondoux was just trying to visit her mother's grave, but the cemetery's management has been scali
City of Ottawa planning staff recommend allowing the National Capital Commission to move forward with a plan to rezone its vacant land along the Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway for five new embassies. The plan has been opposed by nearby residents and the city councillor for Kitchissippi ward who argue the development would cut off residents from greenspace they use every day when open space in the urban core is increasingly under threat from intensification. The NCC amended its original plan to as
Carol Sip spent three decades inside the federal public service, but her retirement plaque is the last thing she wants to see on her wall. Instead it sits stored away in the original packaging. "Why would I hang it up? It will only bring back awful memories," Sip said. "It should be something that you should be proud of, but I'm not proud of it because I know what I went through." Sip is one of a group Black federal employees involved in a proposed class-action lawsuit launched last December aga
In the hands-on tradition of Atlantic Canadian fish plants, Scotia Harvest president and part owner Alain d'Entremont takes a break from a tour of the company's new state-of-the-art facility, picks up a shovel and packs ice onto halibut in a bin on a forklift. "My grandfather would not be happy if I did not have it on the white side up. Like every halibut should be," he says, using his hands to pack the ice into the gutted cavity. "That's for sure," chimes in Leonard Thibodeau on the forklift. B
Green Party Leader Annamie Paul says the only distinction between the Conservative and Liberal climate change plans is that the Conservatives are being candid about their ability to hit their emission reduction targets. "The difference between the Liberals and the Conservatives is that the Conservatives are being honest that what they're planning to do is not going to get us past 30 per cent greenhouse gas emissions reductions," Paul told CBC News. "The Liberals are pretending that is going to g
LONDON (AP) — What could be more American than summer camp? It has fresh air, sailing, cookouts — and, in Bess Wohl’s new play, swastikas. “Camp Siegfried” is based on a real-life camp on Long Island in the 1930s that indoctrinated young German-Americans into Nazi ideology. The play has its opening night Friday at London’s Old Vic Theatre, the venue’s first show to full-capacity audiences since the coronavirus pandemic began. Photos from the era show brown shirt-wearing teenagers parading with N
The City of Ottawa has set out what it wants to build at LeBreton Flats when that prime federal land is developed over the coming years, including a major new city park near the Ottawa River, affordable housing, and a child-care centre.

The city's new central library is already being built there, but a community group has pushed for many more so-called community benefits to go along wit
