A new survey has found that many Canadian parents are on the fence when it comes to sending their kids to school if and when classrooms are reopened.

Fifty-nine per cent of respondents with children said they would send their kids to school if there is some type of classroom instruction at least a few days a week.

The poll by Leger and the Association for Canadian Studies comes as provincial governments continue to work on plans to get students back into classrooms after months of COVID-19 closures.

A group says inconsistent funding for licensed child-care centres means facilities in some Ontario municipalities may not be able to reopen or expand capacity.

Andrea Hannen, executive director of the Association of Day Care Operators of Ontario, says at the local level are causing delays in daycare reopening in some areas.

She says Ontario is the only province that administers funding for childcare through municipalities.

She says in some municipalities, daycare owners and operators haven’t received funding or a firm commitment on how much they will receive, and thus can’t afford the expense of reconfiguring their space and programming to fit public health guidelines and requirements.

The Senate gave the law the green light yesterday after the package passed the House of Commons last week.

Lawyers for the Huawei executive spent Monday disputing the Canadian government’s claim that it can’t release some documents related to her arrest.

Meng is wanted in the U-S fraud related to violating Iranian sanctions.

A Royal Canadian Navy vessel is due to return home today, nearly three months after a deadly helicopter crash that claimed the lives of six crew members.

H-M-C-S Fredericton was docked in Italy for two weeks after the crash of the Cyclone helicopter, but resumed its mission in mid-May, completing a six-month deployment in the Mediterranean Sea.

The downing of the chopper, known as Stalker 22, caused the worst single-day loss of life for the Canadian Armed Forces since a 2007 roadside bombing in Afghanistan killed six Canadian troops.

The mayors of six U-S cities are appealing to Congress to make it illegal for the U-S government to deploy militarized agents to cities that don’t want them.

The mayors of Portland, Oregon, Seattle, Chicago, Kansas City, Albuquerque, New Mexico, and Washington wrote to leaders of the U-S House and Senate pushing for limits on agent deployments.

He has been involved in research for one of China’s leading vaccine candidates, though he declined to specify which company’s vaccine he took.

The claim underscores the enormous stakes as China competes with U-S and British companies to be the first with a vaccine to help end the pandemic — a feat that would be both a scientific and political triumph.

Former Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak has been convicted in a criminal case involving the multi-billion-dollar looting of a Malaysian state investment fund.

The scandal brought down his government in a shocking election ouster two years ago.

Najib remained calm and stone-faced as he became the first Malaysian leader to be convicted, vowing later to appeal the verdict that could bring many years in prison.

The ruling is the first in his five corruption trials.
