    Two Canadian women were attacked by a bear along a nature trail Monday, resulting in serious injuries. Analyn Shurtliff Bartolome, her teenage son, Leosette Canoy, and her niece were walking on the Wolverine Trail at Bear Mountain Cross Country Ski Club in Dawson Creek, British Columbia, before 7 p.m. when the attack occurred. A black bear was already charging at them by the time they noticed the animal, according to the Conservation Officer Service. The group attempted to escape but could not outrun the bear, with the animal eventually attacking the two women. Bartolome's son punched the bear and hit it with a stick while it attacked the women, only to be knocked off to the side, resulting in bruised ribs, according to a fundraiser in the family's name. The teenager and the niece were eventually able to get to the ski club's cabin and call 911.

    Matthew Lewis has slammed Air Canada as he claimed that they 'tore up' his first class ticket and bumped him into economy because of a 'full flight'. The actor, 33, who played Neville Longbottom in the Harry Potter franchise, took to Twitter on Friday to criticise the airline as he flew from Orlando to Toronto. He deemed Air Canada to be the 'worst airline in North America' as he claimed that the airline 'tore up' his first class ticket when he reached the gate.

    This is the striking moment that a pair adolescent bears begin brawling - as they train to vie for female attention. The pair of young male North American Brown Bears - more commonly known as grizzly bears - are being housed in British Columbia Provincial Park, Canada, and fought several times in a two-hour scrap. The smaller bear was up for a fight despite only weighing around 125kg (275kg), according to wildlife photographer Jenny Stevens.

    An airline which ejected at least 25 passengers from a Heathrow-bound plane without telling them why has admitted that some were 'mistakenly removed'. Air Canada has confirmed that some passengers had done nothing wrong before its staff accompanied by armed police ordered them off the plane. Officials have been contacting the innocent passengers to apologise for the blunder and are believed to be discussing possible compensation with them. But the airline is continuing to claim that others were thrown off the flight for 'disruptive behaviour' which included a failure to wear masks under anti-Covid rules. It refused to confirm how many were wrongly ordered off as the plane sat on the tarmac at Montreal airport late on Monday night before leaving for Heathrow. MailOnline revealed on Wednesday how passengers sitting quietly in their seats were told they had to leave without being given any explanation. Those affected included support staff from Formula One teams who were in Montreal for the Grand Prix as well as a retired British couple who had been on holiday. Officials have been contacting the innocent...
    CNN International, the global arm of CNN, ABC and CBS News will stop broadcasting in Russia, after the Kremlin introduced a new law in the country that could jail anyone intentionally spreading 'fake' news. Bloomberg News, the BBC and Canada's CBC also said they were temporarily suspending the work of their journalists inside Russia.  Russian officials have said that false information has been spread by enemies such as the United States and its Western European allies in an attempt to sow discord among the Russian people. Lawmakers in Moscow passed amendments to the criminal code making the spread of 'fake' information an offense punishable with fines or jail terms. They also imposed fines for anyone calling for sanctions against Russia following the invasion of Ukraine. The new legislation was passed by parliament and will become law when Vladimir Putin signs it, as he is widely expected to do. It was not clear when Putin would sign the measure. It appeared to give the Russian state much stronger powers to crack down, by making it a criminal offense to spread fake information,...
    BEIJING (AP) — The United States may have lost the gold medal 10 minutes into the Olympics. Two weeks before facing Canada in the women’s hockey final, the Americans watched first-line center and arguably their best player, Brianna Decker, get stretchered off the ice with a broken leg early in the tournament opener. Try as they might to fill the gaping hole in their lineup, missing Decker proved to be too much to overcome in a 3-2 loss to the Canadians in the gold-medal game Thursday. “I think that we did a good job coming back with it and sticking together as a team,” said winger Amanda Kessel, whose goal with 13 seconds left was part of a frantic finish. “But it definitely didn’t help us, and we definitely missed her out there.” Replacement Abby Roque couldn’t cash in on the scoring chances that Decker might have. Even though Hilary Knight scored her sixth goal in Beijing and Kessel made things interesting in the final minute, the top-end talent for Canada came through in the clutch. With Decker watching on...
    By JOHN WAWROW AP Hockey Writer BEIJING — American assistant captain Hilary Knight calls it “a beautiful rivalry.” Canadian captain Marie-Philip Poulin sums it up as “very fun.” Don’t be fooled by the pleasantries. One of the fiercest and longest-running grudge matches in international sports will play out for the second time at the Beijing Olympics, with the meeting Thursday (Wednesday, 8:10 p.m. PT, NBC) between the United States and Canada determining who goes home with gold. “These are the games that we live for,” U.S. captain Kendall Coyne Schofield said following a 4-1 semifinal win against Finland. “Everyone’s been so resilient through the pandemic with the ups and downs, the cancellations, postponements and finding ways to train, and it’s for this moment. We’re going to empty the tanks, and this is what we came here to do.” The U.S. is the defending Olympic champion after rallying to beat Canada, 3-2, in a shootout at the 2018 Pyeongchang Games. The Canadians are considered the favorites this time after steamrolling to a 6-0 record and...
    OTTAWA, ONTARIO — A group of about 100 frustrated Ottawa residents staged a counterprotest on Sunday, upset with authorities for not doing more to shut down the Freedom Convoy, which for the third weekend in a row has brought Canada's capital city to its knees. "We had to do something to show that we're not happy with how our city has been completely let down, by the police, by the city administration, by the province," counterprotester Greg Morrow said. "It's shocking." Morrow, a longtime Ottawa resident, said he's seen the city handle protests in the past, but the enormity of the trucker demonstrations in downtown Ottawa is something new. "We're used to the police doing something, and that to me is the most shocking element of all," he told CBC News. "That's very difficult to see ... How simple it would have been to prevent all of this from happening. So going forward, I hope there is a serious conversation about policing and how these things can never be allowed to happen again." Another counter protest at Bank and...
    Kentucky Republican Senator Rand Paul even said he'd welcome a similar trucker convoy in Washington, DC and said 'it wouldn't shut the city down because the government workers haven't come to work in two years anyway' Kentucky Republican Senator Rand Paul urged truckers to 'clog things up' in American cities during a recent interview where he called for a similar protest to Canada's 'Freedom Convoy' to occur in the U.S. 'I'm all for it,' Paul told the Daily Signal on Thursday. 'Civil disobedience is a time-honored tradition in our country, from slavery to civil rights, you name it. Peaceful protest, clog things up, make people think about the mandates.'    Paul's comments in his Thursday interview came just after a bulletin from the Department of Homeland Security warned that another convoy could disrupt Sunday evening's Super Bowl game in Los Angeles. But a recent report by a social media tracking firm showed that such an event is unlikely, as of Saturday. The bulletin also warned that a convoy could be timed to disrupt President Joe Biden's State of the Union in...
    While protests by truckers and others against COVID mandates continue to occupy Canada’s capital, block US-Canada border crossings and add to supply chain headaches, Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky said he hopes trucker protests come to the United States as soon as this weekend to “clog up” major US cities. Asked by The Daily Signal about his thoughts on the convoy and the potential for it to spill over into Los Angeles, home of Sunday’s Super Bowl, or into the nation’s capital, Paul said Thursday that “it’d be great” if the anti-mandate, truck-inspired protests popped in the United States to “clog things up.” “I’m all for it,” Paul, a longtime opponent to masking and vaccine mandates, told the conservative media outlet. “Civil disobedience is a time-honored tradition in our country, from slavery to civil rights, to you name it. Peaceful protest, clog things up, make people think about the mandates.” He added: “I hope the truckers do come to America, and I hope they clog up cities.” Paul’s office did not immediately respond to CNN’s request for comment. The...
    A huge convoy of Canadian truck drivers arrived in Ottawa on Friday night ahead of a planned protest at the weekend against vaccine mandates for drivers. Since January 15, all Canadian truck drivers who are unvaccinated must take a COVID-19 test and quarantine when driving back from the United States. They are not allowed into the U.S. unless they are vaccinated, and American drivers are not allowed into Canada unless they show their certificate. American drivers returning to the U.S., however, do not need to take a test and quarantine. Justin Trudeau, the Canadian prime minister, has dismissed the protest from the truckers as a disgruntled few, pointing out that almost 90 percent of his country is vaccinated. Yet the drivers in the so-called 'Freedom Convoy' are angry at his mandate, and plan this weekend on showing the strength of their sentiment in the Canadian capital at the end of a 2,000 mile protest rally.   Canadian truck drivers are seen in Ottawa on Friday ahead of a planned weekend of protest against COVID-19 vaccine rules The convoy - at times...
    DETROIT (CBS Detroit/AP) — Seizures of marijuana and ammunition at Michigan’s border with Canada have increased over the past year or so despite travel restrictions between the U.S. and Canada due to the coronavirus pandemic. Marijuana confiscated last year by U.S. Customs and Border Protection personnel assigned to the Detroit Field Office was up nearly 2,800% from fiscal year 2019, the agency said Thursday.

    SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- The new COVID-19 variant omicron continues to spread across the globe. On Sunday, Canada reported the first cases in North America. Chief Medical Advisor Dr. Fauci confirmed it's only a matter of time before this variant is detected in the U.S."Inevitably it will be here. The question is will we be prepared for it? The preparation that we have ongoing for what we are doing now with the Delta variant just needs to be ramped up," said Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of NIAID and the Chief Medical Advisor to the President.With 50 mutations omicron appears to be more transmissible than any other variant."We've been studying these mutations in isolation and trying to figure out what they do at a molecular level. Well, this new variant seems like it's in some ways some of the greatest hits. A number of these mutations have coalesced here on this new variant," said Dr. Nevan Krogan, Ph.D., Director of Quantitative Biosciences Institute at UCSF.RELATED: US health officials work to answer 3 key questions about the new Omicron variantWe caught up...
    AS CANADIANS headed to the polls to vote for the next leader, their current Prime Minister was entering yet another racist scandal. On Monday, a new photograph emerged online of a younger Justin Trudeau sticking out his tongue while disgracefully donning blackface. Trudeau was photographed wearing blackface at a party in 2001 A grab from a video where Trudeau wore blackface again The Canadian PM said he was 'really sorry' at a press conference in 2019 In the unverified image, Mr Trudeau is seen wearing a white robe and turban with a purple feather and sparkling red gem stuck to it with his hands and face entirely coated in dark brown or black paint. The jarring picture was published online by the conservative campaign group Canada Proud in what appeared to be an act to undermine Trudeau's chances for re-election in the tight race. And now the image has reignited the scandal of the 49-year-old - who is famed for his ultra-political correctness. Ahead of the 2019 election, similar photographs were published by TIME showing the PM wearing black make-up...
    The first time Menlo School’s Maddy Price raced against Allyson Felix was at the 2019 track and field World Championships in Qatar. On Saturday, Price, 24, was lined up against the 11-time Olympic medalist in the second leg of the 4X400-meters relay at the Tokyo Games. This time, Price didn’t have time to worry about a celebrity in her race as she focused on leading Canada to its first medal in the event since 1984. By the time Price got the baton from teammate Alicia Brown, Felix and the United States were taking control. Felix jetted to the lead with a time of 49.38 seconds in her final appearance on the Olympic stage. Price’s Olympic debut has been a success. She recorded Canada’s fastest leg with a time of 49.95 to put her country in medal contention. The Canadians, though, could not hold on to third place. They placed fourth just like at the Rio Games when Price just missed making the Olympic team. This time Canada finished 0.60 of a second behind bronze medalist...

    QPR flop Junior Hoilett became Canada’s all-time assist leader after he set up two goals in his country’s 4-1 win over Martinique on Sunday.

    Scientists in the U.S. and Canada are opening new fronts in the war against so-called murder hornets as the giant insects begin establishing nests this spring. The scientists said Wednesday that the battle to prevent the apex predators from establishing a foothold in North America is being fought mostly in Whatcom County, Washington, and the nearby Fraser Valley of British Columbia, where the hornets have been spotted in recent years. OVER 500 'MURDER HORNETS' WERE FOUND IN WASHINGTON NEST, INCLUDING NEARLY 200 QUEENS "This is not a species we want to tolerate here in the United States," said Sven-Erik Spichiger of the Washington state Department of Agriculture, which eradicated a nest of the Asian giant hornets last year. "The Asian giant hornet is not supposed to be here." "We may not get them all, but we will get as many as we can," he said of eradication efforts this year. Paul van Westendorp of the British Columbia Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Fisheries said the hornets pose threats to human life, to valuable bee populations needed to pollinate crops and...
    By ROB GILLIES, Associated Press TORONTO (AP) — Canada once was hailed as a success story in dealing with the coronavirus pandemic, faring much better than the United States in deaths and infections because of how it approached lockdowns. But the trade-dependent nation has lagged on vaccinating its population because it lacks the ability to manufacture the vaccine and has had to rely on the global supply chain for the lifesaving shots, like many other countries. With no domestic supply, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government bet on seven different vaccines manufactured elsewhere and secured advance purchase agreements — enough to get 10 doses for each of Canada's 38 million people. Regulators have approved the Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. While acquiring them has proven difficult, that gamble appears to be about to pay off. Although Canada's economy is tightly interconnected with the U.S., Washington hasn't allowed the hundreds of millions of vaccine doses made in America to be exported, and Canada has had to turn to Europe and Asia. “Our best friend and neighbor, the United States,...

    (Reuters) - British American Tobacco said on Thursday it will buy a nearly 20% stake in Canada-based cannabis producer Organigram for about 126 million pounds ($175.81 million) as it diversifies beyond its main tobacco business. Organigram grows cannabis and makes cannabis-derived products in Canada where marijuana was legalised in 2018. Big tobacco and liquor companies in North America have already made large investments in the nascent cannabis industry. Marlboro maker Altria has invested in pot producer Cronos Group Inc, while Corona beer-maker Constellation Brands Inc has bought a stake in Canopy Growth, the largest weed company by market value. The deal with Organigram will give BAT access to R&D technologies, product innovation and cannabis expertise. "Organigram has a proven track record of consumer-led innovation and developing high quality adult-use recreational and medical cannabis products, which are legally available in Canada," BAT said in a statement.

    By Jordan Valinsky | CNN Business Victoria’s Secret is continuing to shrink its store count. Its parent company L Brands announced that it plans to permanently close between 30 to 50 stores in the United States and Canada this year. The reduction comes after it closed 241 stores in 2020, leaving it with 848 stores across the two countries. This time a year ago, it had more than 1,100 locations. L Brands warned last year that it would close more Victoria’s Secret locations, leaving the beleaguered lingerie retailer’s future murky after plans to spin it off fell through. L Brands still plans to offload Victoria’s Secret. “Over the next six months, we will continue to work toward the separation of the two businesses, proceeding down a dual track to prepare for either a spin-off or a sale,” the company said in a statement.

    Nearly one year after winning a Super Bowl as a member of the Kansas City Chiefs, offensive lineman-turned-doctor Laurent Duvernay-Tardif is opening up about his decision to temporarily step away from football in 2020 in order to work on the front lines of the pandemic in his native Quebec. The 29-year-old has been celebrated for enlisting as an orderly at an extended-care facility in Montreal, and was even named one of four recipients of Sports Illustrated's Sportsperson of the year award in 2020. However, with the Chiefs back in the Super Bowl on Sunday, Duvernay-Tardif admitted to the Washington Post that he may end up regretting the move in spite of his good intentions. 'It was never black or white,' said Duvernay-Tardif, who was speaking before the Chiefs' AFC title game win over Buffalo on January 24. 'As the season progressed and the stakes are higher, I do miss football even more, especially now with the playoffs. There's more than one way to look at it, and it's not always simple.' 'But who knows?' he later added. 'Who knows how...

    (CBS4) — A group that’s against the culling of geese in Denver parks is putting up two billboards in the city next week. They say 1,662 Canada geese were culled without public notice in 2019 — and 517 were killed in 2020. The two billboards state “Dear USDA, Stop Killing Our Wildlife,” and “Lake Watch, Protect Our Geese.” The two billboards will be up from Monday to Thursday on South Colorado Boulevard, one block north of Interstate 25, at East Mexico Avenue. The Animal Defense Fund claims the U.S. Department of Agriculture hid details about the number of birds slated to be killed and the cost per bird. In Defense of Animals and Canada Geese Protection Colorado want the USDA to “be transparent in informing the public on projects aimed at killing wildlife using taxpayers’ money.” “The public has a right to know about these actions, which were paid for by public tax dollars,” officials said in a statement. The campaign also encourages citizen participation in learning more about lake ecosystems and surrounding wildlife.  
    By Mayank Bhardwaj and Manoj Kumar NEW DELHI (Reuters) - Thousands of Indian farmers protesting against deregulation of agriculture markets are drawing strength from Sikhs around the world who are urging foreign governments to intercede with Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Farmers, mostly from the Sikh-dominated state of Punjab, have been camped on the borders of New Delhi since last month, demanding Modi roll back the reforms intended to bring investment in the antiquated farm sector but which the farmers say will leave them at the mercy of big corporations. Sikhs living overseas, most of whom have families at home tied to the farms, have picked up the thread in the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada and Australia, demonstrating outside Indian embassies to draw attention. On Thursday, 250 to 300 Sikhs and other overseas Indians took part in a rally in a Melbourne district to express their support for India's farmers, said Rajbir Singh, who runs a small transport business in Melbourne. On Saturday, people of Indian origin plan to carry out similar protests near the state parliament of Victoria...
    Former Wimbledon finalist, Milos Raonic, was a rising sensation when he was witnessed on tour. The Canadian star managed to attain the highest ranking of number 3 in the world. Milos has reached the semi-finals of a major on two occasions, at the Australian Open (2016) and Wimbledon (2014).  In 2011, around the time he sustained a hip injury, Raonic got involved in philanthropy. The focus was on helping underprivileged children. Later in 2012, Milos set up the ‘Milos Raonic Foundation’. The main aim was to support children from disadvantaged backgrounds in order to remove economic, physical, and other barriers that might prevent them from becoming healthy, productive members of society.

    By Sarah Berman VANCOUVER (Reuters) - Testimony of a Canadian police officer acting as the airport liaison when Huawei Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou was arrested two years ago will continue in court on Tuesday as the witness cross examination in Meng's U.S. extradition hearings enters the final week. Prosecutors are trying to establish that Meng's arrest by the Canadian federal police and the investigation by the border officials were aboveboard. Meng's lawyers are seeking to prove that Canadian and U.S. authorities illegally directed the Canada Border Services Agency's (CBSA) examination of Meng in order to use the agency’s additional investigative powers to gather information from her without a lawyer present. Meng, 48, was arrested in Canada in December 2018 on a warrant from the United States. She is facing charges of bank fraud for allegedly misleading HSBC Holdings Plc about Huawei Technologies Co Ltd's business dealings in Iran, causing the bank to break U.S. sanctions. She has said she is innocent and is fighting the extradition from under house arrest in Vancouver. The witness testimony this week has generated...
    VIDEO3:0803:08General Motors CEO on third-quarter earnings, rise in demand for trucks and moreSquawk Box General Motors plans to significantly increase production of its highly profitable pickup trucks by investing up to $1 billion in its Canadian operations. The investment is part of a tentative deal with Canadian union Unifor, GM CEO Mary Barra told investors Thursday during the company's third-quarter earnings call. The investment is pending union member ratification in the coming days. "We can't build enough," Barra said regarding the trucks. "We will move very quickly. We expect construction to begin on the new body shop and flexible assembly module at Oshawa immediately upon ratification." GM expects a "significant increase" in its full-size pickup truck capacity when the plant comes online in January 2022, Barra said. She declined to disclose other details before the deal's expected ratification.

    Maybe these onions were showing too much skin. Facebook banned a Canadian seed company’s ad featuring a fairly plain picture of the root vegetable — labeling it “overtly sexual” in an algorithm-fueled mess-up, according to reports. In the eye-watering flub, Facebook blocked the Gaze Seed Company’s ad for $1.99 Walla Wallas, saying the onions were positioned in a “sexually suggestive manner” — apparently mistaking the bulbs for breasts, according to CBC News. “I guess something about the two round shapes there could be misconstrued as boobs or something, nude in some way,” Jackson McLean, a manager at the Newfoundland-based firm, told the outlet. “You’d have to have a pretty active imagination to look at that and get something sexual out of it.” McLean posted a screen shot of the not-so-steamy vegetables on Facebook Saturday, writing, “Just got notified by Facebook that the photo used for our Walla Walla Onion seed is “Overtly Sexual”… Can you see it?” He later asked for the site to review the bizarre ban, and heard nothing back for days, he said. But after local media...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — A Canadian woman accused of mailing a package containing ricin to the White House included a threatening letter in which she told President Donald Trump to “give up and remove your application for this election,” according to court papers filed Tuesday. Pascale Ferrier, of Quebec, was arrested Sunday at the U.S.-Canada border and made her first court appearance Tuesday afternoon in federal court in Buffalo, New York. She faces a charge of threatening the president. The envelope containing the toxic substance and the threatening letter was addressed to the White House but intercepted at a mail sorting facility on Friday.

This gift is in this letter,” she wrote, according to the affidavit. “If it doesn’t work, I’ll find better recipe for another poison, or...

Karl Haddad, 20, had just flown to Canada from Lebanon, and was on a flight from Toronto to Montreal when he noticed that the window he was sleeping against had a crack around the outside.

    I ordered a hot black coffee, an English muffin egg, cheese and ham/bacon sandwich, and hash browns. Sophie-Claire Hoeller/Insider Canada's Tim Hortons is often compared to Dunkin'. To see how the two compare, I tried the same breakfast items at both during a trip in January: a hot black coffee, an iced coffee with milk, an English muffin breakfast sandwich, and hash browns. I preferred the food at Tim Hortons, though I found the coffee was similar at both. I found breakfast at Tim Hortons was cheaper than Dunkin'. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. If America runs on Dunkin', Canada runs on Tim Hortons. Much like Dunkin', Tim Hortons is a casual, counter-service spot for coffee, breakfast sandwiches, and pastries that can be found on almost every corner in Canada — with almost 5,000 locations, it's Canada's largest restaurant chain  and claims to serve almost eight of every 10 cups of coffee sold in the country. On a trip to Quebec City back in January, I had to see for myself why Timmy's (as it's...
