BEIJING (AP) — Macao police on Saturday detained the head of Macao’s biggest junket organizer and others after Chinese authorities issued an arrest warrant for them over accusations that they ran an illegal cross-border gambling syndicate. The arrests in the gambling enclave came after prosecutors in Wenzhou, in the eastern province of Zhejiang, on Friday accused Suncity Group CEO Alvin Chau and another person, Zhang Ningning, of leading cross-border gambling operations and setting up casinos ac

Heath Krevesky is a self-confessed political junkie — and a bit of a nerd. That's his way of explaining why he's been tracking his weekly grocery bill for years now. And why he's worried that inflation is taking a bigger and bigger bite out of his food budget. "In 2019, it cost me $9,826 to feed myself. In 2020, that cost of feeding myself went to $11,994, an increase of 22 per cent," he said. "I can't wait to find out how this year wraps itself out. It appears as though it's going to be close t
A friend mentioned recently that whenever someone asks him about "last year," his mind automatically rewinds to 2019. For him, 2020 isn't just a blur — it has virtually disappeared from his memory altogether. Soon after the COVID-19 pandemic struck, many of us began to notice a strange phenomenon: there were moments under lockdown when the clock seemed to stop, but looking back, it feels like the time flew by. CBC Ottawa put the question to our Instagram followers: How have the last 20 months al
Bonnie Pauzé carefully lines up small mason jars full of water on the porch at her farm near Elmvale, Ont. She's collected dozens of them at regular intervals for more than a decade. The water in some is clear, less so in others. Pauzé lifts a jar and points to dirty black sediment, another contains a layer of silt that has settled on the bottom. She shakes it and the water becomes cloudy. "This is kind of my own little clinical study that reminds me when I lose courage and I lose hope," she sai
Some Ottawa community associations say soaring insurance costs eat into their limited funds for running neighbourhood events, and they want the City of Ottawa to pay for their premiums the way it does for most of their counterparts. Community associations need insurance for everything they do, such as running outdoor rinks, gardens, and barbecues. Under an arrangement from 2001, the City of Ottawa agreed to keep covering commercial and general liability for 180 organizations that existed before
In Uppsala Cathedral, the heart of Swedish Christianity, Archbishop Antje Jackelén sat this week before a circle of Sámi leaders in traditional dress and the television cameras of Sweden's state broadcaster, listing the past crimes of her church. "You have told us about forced Christianization and Swedish colonialism. Sámi culture was denied," Jackelén said, in Swedish. "Today, we acknowledge this and, on behalf of the Church of Sweden, I apologize." Wednesday's apology service in Uppsala, the c

The body of a man who died of a suspected overdose was lying on the ground for hours in Toronto's Bellevue Square Park last Saturday, covered by a blanket and surrounded by police tape as residents watched. Another man, 28-year-old DJ Ryckman, died three weeks earlier of a suspected overdose in the same Kensington Market park after paramedics tried unsuccessfully to revive him outside the tent where he slept. Gabriella Caruso, founder of a nearby community arts studio, helped organize a vigil to
