    VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Francis, struggling with a bad knee, is going ahead with his plan to visit Canada this summer so he can apologize in person for abuse suffered by Indigenous peoples at the hands of the Catholic church. The Vatican on Friday announced that Francis will head to Canada on July 24, returning to Rome on July 30. While in Canada he will visit Edmonton, Quebec and Iqaluit, a small town where about half the population are Inuit. Last month, Francis made a historic apology for abuses in Canada’s church-run residential schools. He said he wanted to go to Canada to deliver the apology personally to survivors of misguided Catholic missionary zeal. Vatican spokesman Matteo Bruni said Francis was “accepting the invitation of the civil and ecclesiastical authorities and the Indigenous communities” in making what the Holy See termed an “apostolic journey.” Even as the Vatican was confirming the trip, Francis was making yet another public appearance, in a Vatican auditorium, in a wheelchair. He used his speech to members of an Italian aviation...

    Rome (CNN)Pope Francis has apologized for the Catholic Church's role in the abuse of Canada's indigenous people, particularly in residential schools.Speaking to Canadian indigenous leaders Friday in the Vatican, the Pope said that he feels "sorrow and shame for the role that a number of Catholics, particularly those with educational responsibilities, have had in all these things that wounded you, in the abuses you suffered and in the lack of respect shown for your identity, your culture and even your spiritual values." "All these things are contrary to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. For the deplorable conduct of those members of the Catholic Church, I ask for God's forgiveness and I want to say to you with all my heart: I am very sorry," the Pope continued. "And I join my brothers, the Canadian bishops, in asking your pardon."

    Pope Francis has accepted an invitation from Canadian bishops to visit the country on a “pilgrimage of healing and reconciliation” after hundreds of bodies were discovered on the grounds of former church-operated schools for indigenous children this summer. The Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops announced Wednesday that Pope Francis would visit Canada as the Catholic Church reckons with its treatment of indigenous children at state-funded, church-run boarding schools during the 20th Century. Though the CCCB and the pope have not yet released a timeline for his visit, it will not occur until after a delegation of indigenous Canadians visits the Vatican in December. PSAKI CHAFES AT ABORTION QUESTION AHEAD OF BIDEN MEETING WITH POPE “The Bishops of Canada have been engaged in meaningful discussions with Indigenous Peoples, especially those affected by Residential Schools who have shared stories about the suffering and challenges that they continue to experience,” said CCCB President Bishop Raymond Poisson. “We pray that Pope Francis’ visit to Canada will be a significant milestone in the journey toward reconciliation and healing.” Canadian Prime...
    VATICAN CITY (AP) — The Vatican says Pope Francis has agreed to visit Canada to help ongoing efforts at reconciliation with Indigenous peoples following shocking revelations of the Catholic church’s role in the abuse and deaths of thousands of native children. In a brief statement on Wednesday, the Vatican said the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops has invited the pope to make an apostolic journey to Canada “also in the context of the long-standing pastoral process of reconciliation with Indigenous peoples.” The Vatican says Francis has indicated his “willingness” to visit Canada at a date to be determined. Given the time usually required to organize an overseas papal visit, it appeared unlikely such a pilgrimage could happen this year. A few months ago, Francis agreed to meet in December with Indigenous survivors of Canada’s notorious residential schools amid calls for a papal apology for the Catholic Church’s role. At that time, the bishops conference said the pontiff had had invited the delegations to the Vatican and would meet separately with three groups — First Nations, Metis and...

    (CNN)When President Joe Biden welcomes his Canadian counterpart to the White House on Tuesday to "reinvigorate" a cross-border relationship strained under his predecessor, he will do so by addressing a large television monitor.In-person visits from foreign leaders are still off-limits as the novel coronavirus continues to rage. So Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will beam into the West Wing from Ottawa, his bearded visage positioned next to Biden on a large screen as each man does his best to replicate the traditional choreography of a White House bilateral meeting.There won't be a handshake. But there will be opening remarks and a photo-op of the men sitting next to each other. The meeting between the two leaders will later expand into a session with Cabinet members, including the secretaries of State, Defense, Homeland Security and Transportation, who will speak to their counterparts over video-conference. And to conclude, Trudeau's face will pop up again from the State Floor of the White House, where he will deliver a joint statement alongside an in-the-flesh Biden.It's not necessarily how Biden, who puts a premium on...
    With the coronavirus pandemic hindering travel in 2020, consumers are holding out hope for next year. In fact, 70% of U.S. and Canadian travelers say they plan to take a vacation in 2021, according to a new survey from the Travel Leaders Group and World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) – two global private sector advisory firms that focus on travel and tourism industries. 71 PERCENT OF AMERICANS HOPE TO VISIT FAMILY FOLLOWING CORONAVIRUS LOCKDOWNS, STUDY CLAIMS Of those who said they’d like to have a vacation next year, 45% have already arranged plans while 54% are at least thinking about travel. “Consumer uncertainty about the risk of exposure or concerns about being quarantined is a core problem,” said Gloria Guevara, WTTC’s president and CEO, regarding the survey’s findings. “With rapid testing to replace quarantine requirements, enhanced contact tracing and industry-wide standards by sector that can be clearly communicated to the public, we can help alleviate many of those concerns.” LONELY PLANET RELEASES ‘ULTIMATE TRAVEL LIST' SECOND EDITION The top three international travel destinations Americans and Canadians are likely to...
    (CNN)They might not admit it, but America's kids need to go back to school. As the pandemic spirals out of control, the longest summer vacation on record is now threatening to become a lost year.Donald Trump is here to help, though his new push to get kids and teachers back into germ-laden classrooms may be more about fostering a sense of normality to boost his reelection hopes. He is bringing the same defiance of science, politicization and wishful thinking to schools as he did to premature economic openings that worsened the Covid-19 disaster. "SCHOOLS MUST OPEN IN THE FALL!!!" the President tweeted.He's not wrong. Months of missed lessons risk seriously denting the education of a generation of children. Experts fear that emotional and mental problems and even teen suicides will reach critical levels if schools remain empty. Millions of poor American pupils get their only square meals of the day at school. And online learning pulled together in a rush is a poor substitute for classrooms.Trump himself doesn't actually have the power to fling open school doors -- in public...

    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s stay in Canada during Megxit easily cost taxpayers more than $40,000 in security costs, according to documents obtained by a watchdog group. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) spent at least $56,384 Canadian — about $41,500 US — protecting the former royals from Nov. 18 until Jan. 19, the Canadian Taxpayers Federation said. That tally, however, is likely to be far higher — and does not even cover salaries paid to Mounties who helped protect them, the federation stressed of documents obtained from access to information requests. The current tally only shows costs such as overtime, travel, meals, incidentals and accommodations. “For security reasons and to protect our operations, we are not releasing salary costs,” the RCMP told the federation in a statement. The report also only highlights part of the time the couple lived in their luxury bolthole on Vancouver Island during their controversial Megxit from royal duties. While the records end mid-January, the duke and duchess only left for their new life in Los Angeles in late March. RCMP officials expressed concern that...
