This Week


Indigenous rights

NDP MP Romeo Saganash’s dream to see Canada bring its laws in line with the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) has moved closer to reality.


New bishop appointed

Pope Francis has named Rev. Jon Hansen, CSsR, as the new bishop of the Diocese of Mackenzie-Fort Smith.
