As someone who has relied on alternative medicine all my life for most of my ailments, I’m used to paying for health care. In that sense, public health care in Canada is a bit of a myth. Like most things, we compare ourselves to the U.S., who have about the worst health care system in the world and compared to them, our system is wonderful. For broken bones, cancer, and major surgery, public health care is excellent but it’s not perfect. As Globe and Mail health reporter André Picard just pointed out on CBC radio, we already have private clinics in many provinces, and they haven’t undermined public health care.

Mandatory minimum penalty for firing gun at house unconstitutional: Supreme CourtOTTAWA — The Supreme Court of Canada has ruled that a mandatory minimum sentence of four years for firing a gun at a house is unconstitutional on the basis it could amount to cruel and unusual punishment. In allowing Hills's appeal, the Supreme Court said the mandatory minimum sentence was grossly disproportionate, given that a young person might fire a paintball gun at a house as part of a game. In any event, the Liberal government repealed this particular mandatory minimum sentence, along with several others, after the appeal was heard. The first offence, robbery committed with a restricted or prohibited firearm, carries a mandatory minimum sentence of five years in prison. The second, robbery with an ordinary firearm, carried a mandatory minimum sentence of four years at the time the appeal was heard, but this minimum sentence has since been repealed.

And when Carlisle played, the now-Pacers coach always cherished the minutes Hall of Famer Bill Walton played with him and the Boston backups. “I was the guy that would come in and really be that coach out on the floor,” McMillan recalled. Ultimately, you have to understand a guy’s situation and how they fare in their minutes. I honestly view those minutes even more important than my starter minutes because those guys aren’t just set in what their careers are going to be.”These rotations don’t work everywhere. “You have to have good players, like really good players off the bench, if you can play with only one starter.

In total, 25 adults between 19 and 49 were exposed to two hours of both filtered air and air contaminated with diesel exhaust. Participants received a functional MRI scan before and after each treatment, enabling researchers to monitor each subject’s brain activity. “The findings are not surprising to me, given the tremendous amount of observational research that already exists,” she said. “We reviewed 1,858 articles related to the health harms of traffic-related air pollution,” Green said, referencing a 2022 report she helped review. “Air pollution is just now another one of those things that people should be thinking about.”Joanna Chiu is a B.C.-based staff reporter for the Star.

The Alberta government is on the attack after a second CBC story has been published regarding the Premier's office interfering with crown prosecutors around cases related to the Coutts protest last winter. The Alberta government is on the attack after a second CBC story has been published regarding the Premier's office interfering with crown prosecutors around cases related to the Coutts protest last winter. “The Premier calls on the CBC to retract its outrageous story and, further, that the CBC and the Official Opposition apologize." According to the CBC exclusive report, multiple sources told the outlet the Premier pressured the justice minister's office to get rid of COVID charges. Alberta's NDP responded to the Premier's statement Wednesday, saying because the allegations are coming from within the government, there must be an independent investigation into the matter.

Now, a Canadian organization is behind an unprecedented use of modelling that has illustrated the disturbing cost of those narratives. The Cost of COVID-19 misinformation Between March and November 2021, misinformation contributed to vaccine hesitancy for an estimated 2.35 million Canadians, according to modelling by the Council of Canadian Academies. The model looked at whether people believed that COVID-19 was a hoax or thought that perceived vaccine harms had been “covered up,” according to the best available polling data. Using a baseline model of real data regarding vaccination levels, case counts, deaths, hospitalizations and intensive care admissions, researchers were able to estimate the impact of misinformation. They show us that misinformation has real-life consequences,” Angus told the Star.

Marked on Jan. 27, International Holocaust Remembrance Day (IHRD) is a powerful reminder there’s nothing like the past to help humanity better tackle the present and address the future. When it comes to the Holocaust, awareness is woefully lacking among many Canadians, especially the young. Admittedly, given its sheer scope and size, understanding the Holocaust, on one level, is extremely difficult. In 2005, the United Nations designated Jan. 27 as International Holocaust Remembrance Day. Each year, like grains of sand emptying from the top half of an hourglass, the number of Holocaust survivors and witnesses continues to diminish.

VANCOUVER—Investigators at a former residential school in British Columbia say they have found another 66 potential graves at a site near the Williams Lake First Nation during the latest phase of an investigation that made 93 such discoveries a year ago. Wednesday’s news conference detailed the latest discovery of potential graves across Canada in recent weeks. Earlier this month, a Saskatchewan First Nation said it had found about 2,000 “anomalies” using ground-penetrating radar that could be the graves of children who attended a residential school in Lebret. The discovery of potential graves of Indigenous children across Canada began in May 2021, when more than 200 such sites were discovered. At the time Indigenous leaders said other such schools across Canada should also be searching for potential graves.
