EDMONTON — Premier Jason Kenney says 48,000 more Albertans must step up for a first dose of COVID vaccine to fully lift health restrictions, and hopes his new lottery plan will be that incentive. "The more people we can get vaccinated more quickly, the safer we all are," Kenney said Monday while announcing details of three $1-million lotteries, which will roll out this summer. Kenney said he asked Health Minister Tyler Shandro a month ago to devise an incentive plan, knowing that demand for firs
NEW YORK (AP) — First they lost James Harden, then Kyrie Irving, and finally the Brooklyn Nets lost their lead in the Eastern Conference semifinals. Though the series is tied, the Milwaukee Bucks are way ahead in the health category. Down to Kevin Durant as their lone healthy superstar, the Nets limp home to host Game 5 on Tuesday, a team that once piled up points with ease suddenly struggling to cobble together much offense at all. “This is what it’s all about in the playoffs, is you’re going t

OTTAWA — The military commander who was removed from his post as the head of vaccine logistics last month is alleging his dismissal involved political interference by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and two of his cabinet ministers.

BERLIN (AP) — Scientists say damaging frost that caused significant economic loss to France's central winegrowing region this year was made more likely by climate change. A report released Tuesday by a group of researchers who study the link between global warming and weather events suggests that the intense April 6-8 frost in France was particularly damaging due to a preceding warm period in March. The analysis conducted by the group World Weather Attribution used 132 climate models to simulate
BRUSSELS (AP) — President Joe Biden used his first appearance at a NATO summit since taking office to call on Russian President Vladimir Putin to step back from provocative actions targeting the U.S. and its allies on Monday. NATO leaders joined the United States in formally accusing Moscow and Beijing of malign actions. Biden's sharp words for Russia and his friendly interactions with NATO allies marked a sharp shift in tone from the past four years and highlighted the renewed U.S. commitment t
U.S. President Joe Biden views the Republican Party as vastly diminished in numbers even as it remains in lockstep with the man he defeated, former President Donald Trump. "The leadership of the Republican Party is fractured and the Trump wing of the party is the bulk of the party, but it makes up a significant minority of the American people," Biden told a news conference in Brussels after a NATO summit. "I think it's appropriate to say that the Republican Party is vastly diminished in numbers," Biden, a Democrat, said without offering support for the claim.
As provinces accelerate their efforts to get their populations fully vaccinated against COVID-19, there are calls for the federal government to issue clear guidance on what people can do once they receive both shots. Some politicians and experts have said Ottawa should provide a framework spelling out which behaviours are considered safe for vaccinated adults, similar to what was issued by the U.S.-based Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, but opinion is divided on whether it's a good id
Toronto Blue Jays outfielder George Springer will start a minor-league rehab assignment Tuesday, the next step in his return from a strained right quadriceps that has kept him out of the lineup for much of the season.

Biden said there was a consensus among his fellow heads of state at NATO, saying they were "glad" he was meeting with Putin early in his presidency. "Every world leader here that's a member of NATO that spoke today -- and most of them mentioned it -- thanked me for meeting with Putin now," Biden said in a press conference on Monday from the NATO headquarters in Brussels.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Federal regulators have denied a union's push to try to organize fewer than 100 employees at the Nissan assembly plant in Tennessee, ruling instead to set a union election of 4,300 plantwide production and maintenance workers next month. A National Labor Relations Board official ruled Friday that the 87 tool and die technicians at Nissan's Smyrna plant share an "overwhelming community of interest" with the rest of the facility's production and maintenance workers.

The U.S. nuclear power regulator has approved production of uranium fuel that is far more enriched than fuel for conventional nuclear power plants, the company aiming to make the material said on Monday.

Centrus Energy Corp said the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, or NRC, approved the company's request to produce HALEU at a Piketon, Ohio, plant and expects to be demonstrating production of the fuel early in 2022.

Mercedes-AMG has given the GT 4-Door a round of light updates to help it fend off the Porsche Panamera, its crosstown rival. The visual changes made to the former are small; the most noteworthy update is that customers who order one are able to request the same front end as the more powerful (and more expensive) V8-powered models. AMG also added three colors to the palette called Spectral Blue Metallic, Spectral Blue Mango, and Cashmere White Mango; the last two feature a matte finish.
