On this day, 100 years ago, most - but not all - Canadian women won the right to vote in federal elections. Several provinces had already granted white women the right to vote provincially, but the right to vote federally was granted on May 24, 1918. It wasn't until 1948 that men and women whose backgrounds were Japanese, Chinese or South Asian living in B.C., or Chinese living in Alberta won the right to vote. Indigenous people were forced to wait until 1960. While much has changed in 100 years, there is still a long way to go before women have equal representation politically. Today, elected officials took to social media to recognize the centenary and share their hopes for full social and political equality. (Photo: Getty Images)
Actor Morgan Freeman has been accused of sexual harassment and inappropriate behaviour by eight women. Multiple women said they never spoke publicly about Freeman’s alleged behaviour before because they were afraid of losing their jobs. This announcement comes just days after Vancouver's transit system announced Freeman would voice transit announcements on the SkyTrain. The transit agency has since pulled Freeman from the voice announcements. (Photo: Reuters) #morganfreeman #transit #actor
The discovery of a 130-million-year-old fossil could write new rules for science. The newly identified Cretaceous Period species, Cifelliodon wahkarmoosuch - discovered in Utah - suggests that Pangaea, the former supercontinent, stayed together for longer than scientists believed. This is an artist rendering by the University of Southern California. The newly identified Cretaceous Period species Cifelliodon wahkarmoosuch is estimated to have weighed 2.5 pounds and probably grew to be about the size of a small hare. #newdiscovery #fossil #rendering #discovery
#Kilauea #Volcano, which erupted for over two weeks, started emitting a dramatic glow.

When a man from Ontario saw a rare sight — two lynxes staring each other down and shrieking at one another on a rural road — he did what anyone would do...he took out his phone and filmed it. Edward Trist came across the bizarre sight while heading down a logging road to go fishing near Avery Lake, Ont., with his girlfriend and his daughter. What do you think of the encounter?
After nearly 100 years, the bodies of three Canadian soldiers from Manitoba have finally been identified. The three men enlisted in Winnipeg and all died during the Battle of Hill 70 as members of the 16th Battalion, Canadian Expeditionary Force. The soldiers’ remains were found over the course of a year in 2010 near the village of Vendin-le-Vieil in northern France. All three of the families have been tracked down and Veterans Affairs Canada said it’s providing them with ongoing support as final arrangements are made. In order of photos: Private Henry Edmonds Priddle, Sergent Archibald Wilson and Private William Del Donegan.
This is the iconic royal wedding photo that the photographer had less than a one-second window to get get the shot – while having to focus through a metal grill he was standing on. It has taken the world by storm. Press Association staff photographer Yui Mok was positioned on the roof of George IV Gateway of Windsor Castle when the royal procession passed underneath him, giving him the unique photo opportunity. Some people have pointed out the couple’s body position form a heart, but Mok says this was purely coincidental. Credit: Getty Images/Yui Mok
