When Pete Giesbrecht was summoned to his local police station on Halloween 2015, he had no idea he was 30 days away from being deported. His crime? He had not reaffirmed his Canadian citizenship before the age of 28 under a complicated, confusing and not well publicized section of the Citizenship Act. "They said, 'No, actually, you have 30 days to leave the country. And if you do not leave willingly, we will fly you out with bracelets and all,' " Giesbrecht recalled recently from his home in sou
A couple in Iqaluit hasn't paid more than a couple cents for their power bill all summer. Bert Rose installed 10 solar panels on his house in Iqaluit. Before the installation, he says his bill was about $200 a month, but now it's free. "May, the bill was one cent. June, the bill was two cents. July, the bill was one cent," said Rose. In June during the summer solstice, Iqaluit gets nearly 21 hours of light. During these bright summer months, Rose's solar panels produce more energy than his house

The "Special Needs Midway Hour," which took place from 3 to 4 p.m., was the first event of its kind at the rural Ottawa fair, which has been running since 1863. People with disabilities, plus one additional family member per guest, were asked to register in advance to ensure the grounds didn't become too crowded. "It's generally too loud, too
A simple blood test to detect more than 50 types of cancer is being hailed by the makers of the test as a new approach to cancer screening, but Canadian medical experts caution the technology needs more work. Earlier this month, Grail — an American biotech company — reported their latest results from their study on their Galleri blood test, a multi-cancer early detection test (MCED). The test is designed to find multiple types of cancer through a blood sample by looking for signals of cancer on
I only started putting pressure on myself – about the way I looked – when I joined The Saturdays during the summer of 2007. Being in a girl band can do that to you. It’s what made me restrict my eating and gave me a false sense of control. But because I was still quite young, always working and moving around, I didn’t have the time to go to the gym. So I relied heavily on the fact that I was dancing all day and always on my feet. That’s how I managed to stay fit and healthy.
Doris Ipeelee remembers meeting a pilot years ago and asking them if they thought she, too, could fly a plane one day.

Now, after graduating from flight school and going through nearly two months of rigorous training with Calm Air, the Inuk pilot from Iqaluit is look forward to flying in her home territory.

Montreal has been declared a basketball city by its own city council, and that makes sense considering it has a team in the national league, thousands of fans and three homegrown players in the NBA. However, those three players came from the borough of Montréal-Nord where community advocates have been lamenting the lack of public sports facilities for years. Declaring Montreal a basketball city is a good first step, but now it is time to invest in the community and ensure local kids have the res
