Let me begin this seminar on the state of health care in Ontario with a word about language. I mean, can you really talk about emergency departments when they close and open suddenly and often? Ontario Health Minister Sylvia Jones confirmed this when asked if further privatization was coming. Ontario got public health care under Conservative governments, along with expanded, virtually free university. I thought I even heard a whisper of it when Ontario Finance Minister Peter Bethlenfalvy (re-)presented his budget.

Trump no longer needs access to such information as an ex-president, albeit one with barely veiled intentions to see the presidency again in 2024. The maximum penalty for gathering, transmitting or losing defence documents — covered under the federal Espionage Act — is 10 years in prison. But past instances of officials caught playing fast and loose with sensitive documents have more often tended toward leniency. “Just to be clear,” wrote Joe Walsh, a former Republican congressman-turned-Trump critic, “we’re here once again because Donald Trump broke the law. “They never ever seem to find the crime in the case of Donald Trump because one doesn’t exist.”Therein lies the modern American political dilemma.

On Thursday, the Public Health Agency of Canada announced it plans to test wastewater across the country for traces of the polio virus. In Canada, the last polio cases was reported in 1994, according to Ontario Health. Officials in London, England, have found polio virus samples in wastewater, and a case of polio was found in New York state in late July. Jerusalem had an outbreak of several polio cases in the spring, the first in more than three decades. While the oral vaccine is effective, much of the western world has switched to the more expensive inactivated vaccine, though the oral vaccine continues to be used globally particularly in the Global South.

Plus de deux ans après avoir mis en place l'application ArriveCAN à destination des personnes venant au Canada, Ottawa a décidé de lâcher un peu de lest. Dans un premier temps, une telle mesure a été mise en place au début de l'été pour les citoyens canadiens. Elle a ensuite été étendue, selon nos informations, à tous les voyageurs étrangers durant le mois de juillet. Alors, c'est certain que ça vient ralentir le processus, puisque les agents frontaliers peuvent avoir à aider les voyageurs à compléter l'application. Depuis plusieurs semaines, dans les principaux aéroports du pays – Montréal, Toronto, Vancouver – les voyageurs peuvent utiliser ArriveCAN pour remplir, en ligne, leur déclaration douanière.

This ultramarathoner crossed the width of Ireland in a day — with a Guinness at the start and endAs It Happens 7:05 This ultramarathoner crossed the width of Ireland in a day — with a Guinness at the start and endAt 10:31 p.m. Saturday night, with a pint of Guinness in his system, Robert Pope dipped his feet in the Atlantic Ocean near Galway City, Ireland, then started running east. In doing so, Pope, an elite ultramarathon runner, became the first-known person to run the width of the island in under a day. In the process, he took a break to earn the Guinness World Record for the fastest marathon in film character costume (male) , dressed as Gump, at the Virgin Money London Marathon in 2018. Pope's food consumption was much more modest in his Ireland run. Asked which was a more welcome sight nearly 24 hours later — the finish line or the pint of Guinness — Pope laughed and said it was the finish line.

Raekallio-Wunderink got the idea for the tree hugging championships during the pandemic when she thought people needed a lift. Hug that tree like you mean itThe dedication category requires a completely different set of skills, Raekallio-Wunderink explains. But those not in Finland can still participate in the Online Championships by posting pictures of themselves hugging a tree in their own country. The picture will be uploaded to a map so that spectators can see the tree hugs going on all over the world.

Premier Doug Ford says he wants his caucus to challenge him and bring forward their ideas. And the new, strict rules his caucus has to follow were the house leader's idea and not punishment, the premier said on Friday. In a PC caucus meeting after the vote, an "upset" Ford told members that they needed to "support one another and the team," one MPP in the meeting recounted (under the condition their identity remain secret). In response to another question, Ford challenged the characterization of the new rules as being "punishment" to MPPs. Ford's and Calandra's spokespeople declined to confirm or deny what sources shared about what MPPs were told at their caucus meeting on Monday.

Today, Premier Doug Ford faced opposition unfamiliar to him when a bee entered his mouth and ended up down his throat. While taking questions from attending media in Dundalk, ON regarding the health-care staffing shortage that is afflicting the entire province, Ford was in the midst of responding when the winged opposition entered his primary orifice. Affably, Ford took a sip of water from a bottle and lightened the mood by acknowledging,“This is going to be played over and over again.”His discomfort was, however, obvious and understandable. Man he went right down the hatch,” he said, laughing.”This is a good one … I can’t remember what we were talking about. I’m going to be rushed to the hospital to get this bee out of here.”Gamely, Ford did continue with the briefing for several minutes.
