Not delaying basic training is necessary to ensure adequate staffing at police detachments, a spokesperson for the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police said.
The plan to object to Biden's electors has added importance to a usually routine step in the path to inauguration and is the broadest effort to challenge a president's win since the Civil War.
The Republicans — at least 13 senators and potentially more than House members — are citing Trump's repeated, baseless charges of widespread fraud.
Their objections could force multiple votes in the Republican-run Senate and the Democratic-controlled House that will almost certainly fail. More than a dozen GOP senators have said they won't support the challenges and plan to vote against them.
There was not widespread fraud in the election, as has been confirmed by a range of election officials and by William Barr, who stepped down as attorney general last month.
Neither Trump nor any of the lawmakers promising to object to the count have presented credible evidence that would change the outcome.
Nearly all of the legal challenges put forth by Trump and his allies have been dismissed by judges. The Supreme Court, which includes three Trump-nominated justices, has also denied requests to hear a pair of cases aimed at invalidating the outcome of the election in key battleground states.
The meeting is required by the Constitution and includes several distinct steps. A look at the joint session:WHAT HAPPENS WHEN CONGRESS MEETS WEDNESDAY?
Under federal law, Congress must meet Jan. The votes are brought into the chamber in special mahogany boxes used for the occasion.
Representatives of both parties in both chambers read the results out loud and do an official count. The president of the Senate, Vice-President Mike Pence, presides over the session and declares the winner.
The session begins at 1 p. The Constitution requires Congress to meet and count the electoral votes. If there is a tie, then the House decides the presidency, with each congressional delegation having one vote.
HOW DOES THE SESSION UNFOLD? The two chambers meet together midday to count the votes. Pence is expected to preside, but if the vice-president cannot be there, there is precedent for the Senate pro tempore, or the longest-serving senator in the majority party, to lead the session.
Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa. The presiding officer opens and presents the certificates of the electoral votes in alphabetical order of the states.
The appointed "tellers" from the House and Senate, members of both parties, then read each certificate out loud and record and count the votes.
At the end, the presiding officer announces who has won the majority of votes for both president and vice-president. But the presiding officer will not hear the objection unless it is in writing and signed by both a member of the House and a member of the Senate.
If there is such a request, then the joint session suspends and the House and Senate go into separate sessions to consider it for up to two hours.
For the objection to be sustained, both chambers must agree to it by a simple majority vote. If they do not both agree, the original electoral votes are counted with no changes.
This process repeats each time there is an objection, and could go all night and into Thursday. The last time such an objection was considered was , when Rep.
Stephanie Tubbs Jones of Ohio and Sen. Both the House and Senate debated the objection and easily rejected it.
It was only the second time such a vote had occurred. WHO IS EXPECTED TO OBJECT? None of the members has presented detailed evidence and few of them have called into question the elections of congressional lawmakers who won election on the same ballots.
The House Republicans, led by Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan and Alabama Rep. Mo Brooks, have said they plan to object to the results from Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
In the Senate, Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley was the first to say he would join with the House Republicans to object to the Pennsylvania results.
On Saturday, Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas announced a coalition of 11 additional senators who vowed to vote against state electors on Wednesday unless Congress appoints an electoral commission to immediately conduct an audit of the election results.
Hawley and Cruz are both among potential presidential contenders. Kelly Loeffler, R-Ga. It is unclear if senators will join with the House Republicans on all six states.
Cruz is expected to object to Arizona, which comes early in the count, and Loeffler may object to her home state of Georgia, according to people familiar with the planning who requested anonymity to discuss it.
The challenges have split the party. John Cornyn and South Dakota Sen. John Thune, the No. Nebraska Sen. Tim Scott said that "no justice, judge or fact finder has found evidence indicating the election results in those states should be overturned.
Other vice-presidents have been in that uncomfortable situation. In , Vice-President Al Gore presided over the counting of the presidential election he narrowly lost to Republican George W.
In , Biden presided over the count that declared Trump the winner. Biden also shot down objections from House Democrats that did not have any Senate support.
The joint session is the last official chance for objections, beyond court cases that have so far proven ineffective for Trump and his team.
Mary Clare Jalonick, The Associated Press. NEW YORK — An election systems worker driven into hiding by death threats has filed a defamation lawsuit against President Donald Trump's campaign, two of its lawyers and some conservative media figures and outlets.
There has been no evidence that the election was rigged. His lawsuit, filed Dec. Dominion and another voting technology company, Smartmatic, have begun to fight back against being named in baseless conspiracy theories.
After legal threats were made, Fox News Channel and Newsmax in recent days have aired segments that challenge false allegations made about the companies on those networks.
Newsmax, in a statement, said it aired allegations that Powell made against Coomer, given public interest in the election aftermath.
I made Oltmann also claimed that Coomer made anti-Trump comments on Facebook. The lawsuit acknowledged that Coomer made comments critical of the president on his private Facebook page; he now says his page is inactive.
Oltmann's charges spread after he was interviewed by Malkin and Gateway Pundit. Eric Trump tweeted about them.
OANN, and its White House correspondent Chanel Rion, reported on them. He wrote horrible things about the president Fox News Channel, another network popular with Trump supporters, is not being sued and Coomer actually uses Fox's Tucker Carlson to buttress his case.
The lawsuit notes a scheduled Powell appearance on Carlson's show did not happen after she could not provide evidence for her charges.
Coomer told The Associated Press earlier this month that right-wing websites posted his photo, home address and details about his family.
Death threats began almost immediately. And I feel that we're on the verge of that. The story was updated on Jan. David Bauder, The Associated Press.
The Haldimand-Norfolk Health Unit is currently managing 10 COVID outbreaks, with the medical officer of health warning that more cases linked to holiday gatherings are likely.
Shanker Nesathurai on Monday, noting there are active cases between the two counties. Positive test results had been doubling every month and January does not promise a slowdown, with 44 new cases reported over the weekend to push the total since the pandemic began to The active outbreaks include three farms, three group homes and four long-term care facilities.
A positive test at Schuyler Farms in Simcoe just before Christmas sent the affected migrant worker and their housemates into self-isolation, extending an outbreak that at its height in November saw 13 workers infected, though none reported serious symptoms.
One migrant worker at Pereira Farms, a tobacco grower in Windham Centre, recently tested positive, while Proplant Propagation Services announced on Jan.
On Monday, the health unit declared an outbreak after a resident and staff member at Cedarwood Village in Simcoe tested positive. Outbreaks were also recently declared at Edgewater Gardens Long-Term Care Centre in Dunnville and a Norfolk Association of Community Living group home after one staff member at each workplace contracted the virus.
Three Haldimand-Norfolk residents have died of the virus since Dec. The latest victims were living in the community prior to their deaths.
Antonacci, Local Journalism Initiative Reporter, The Hamilton Spectator. Vancouver's real estate market ended with a bang, as a December home-buying spree helped the market rebound from a weak , despite the COVID pandemic.
Home sales jumped The board said 3, homes were sold in December, up from 2, in December and slightly more than the 3, homes sold in November.
Board chairwoman Colette Gerber said the COVID pandemic brought the housing market to a "near standstill" in March, but demand for housing returned through summer, fall and winter—intensified by low interest rates.
Calgary's home sales hit a new record for December, the strongest showing since , the Calgary Real Estate Board said on Monday.
On Tuesday, the Quebec Professional Association of Real Estate Brokers said that the Montreal real estate market set sales records in all areas last month.
In Vancouver, Gerber also pointed to the pandemic's effect on "shifting housing needs," as more buyers have searched for stand-alone homes outside downtown amid more widespread stay-at-home and work-from-home mandates.
Sales of detached homes led the December gains, rising Apartment sales were up 40 per cent from last December, totalling 1, Real estate agents sold attached homes, such as townhomes, in December, up Composite home prices were up Across the metro area, Bowen Island, the Sunshine Coast, and Tsawwassen saw the biggest one-month jump in composite home prices in December.
Nearby Fraser Valley Real Estate Board said on Tuesday that December home sales were Despite December home sales that were A year ago, the board noted that homebuyers had been waiting to see how prices would react to the mortgage stress test, new taxes, and other policy changes.
The B. After home sales ended Heading into , the number of homes listed for sale in Vancouver was down 0. That put the sales-to-active listings ratio — a closely watched measure in the real estate market — at The real estate board said that a sales-to-active listings ratio above 20 per cent over a sustained period will push home prices higher.
Gerber said that going forward, "the supply of homes for sale will be a critical factor in determining home price trends. Anita Balakrishnan, The Canadian Press.
OTTAWA — Canada is the latest country to investigate how to stretch vaccine doses as far as possible, as the COVID pandemic continues to have tragic consequences all around the world.
Theresa Tam, Canada's chief public health officer, said Tuesday she has asked the National Advisory Committee on Immunization to investigate whether it would be warranted to delay the second doses of a COVID vaccine in a bid to get first doses to more people faster.
The situation, she noted, is grim, with more than 7, new patients diagnosed every day, more than 77, people actively infected with it, and more than 4, people in the nation's hospitals with it.
Over the last week, an average of Canadians have died of COVID every day. Tam said there is some promising evidence that single doses of vaccines designed to be given in two shots are effective for a while, but that evidence is limited.
She stressed Canada remains committed to giving two doses of the vaccines but that she has asked the advisory committee to look at what is known about the matter, and what should be considered when deciding whether to adjust the dosing schedule.
Health Canada has approved two vaccines against COVID, and about , people have now been given at least one dose. On Monday, the first people began receiving their second doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, 21 days after they received first doses on Dec.
That schedule follows the advice of Pfizer and BioNTech, which said their vaccine is 95 per cent effective at preventing COVID symptoms within seven days of receiving a second dose.
The doses are to be administered 21 days apart. AstraZeneca's vaccine, which has been approved in the United Kingdom but not yet in Canada, also requires a second dose after 28 days.
Several countries are now investigating or authorizing the delay of those second doses, to get more people vaccinated with first doses.
Denmark authorized a six-week delay. The U. Germany is also investigating whether to delay the second dose. Pfizer told The Canadian Press in a statement it doesn't endorse a delayed-dose plan.
While peer-reviewed reports on its vaccine's clinical trial found the vaccine was about 52 per cent effective at preventing illness after one dose, most patients received the second dose after 21 days so there is no data analyzing how well one dose works beyond three weeks.
Moderna similarly said it can't comment on whether its vaccine is effective outside the two-dose, day schedule.
Moderna said two equal doses given 28 days apart provided a stronger immune response than one double dose delivered in a single injection.
The World Health Organization said Tuesday delaying Pfizer's second doses up to six weeks could be acceptable under exceptional circumstances.
Food and Drug Administration said it is worth investigating the idea of delaying doses, or injecting half-doses, but that at the moment there is no evidence supporting the authorization of any changes.
David Fisman, an epidemiologist in Toronto, said there might be some evidence for delaying a second dose to six weeks, rather than 21 or 28 days.
He said he suspects the six-week window wasn't used in the COVID trials because this is a public health emergency. However Fisman said Canada has bigger vaccine concerns right now because we just aren't vaccinating people fast enough on the suggested dose-schedule.
Canada has received , Pfizer and Moderna vaccine doses thus far, but records currently show only about one-third have been injected.
Mia Rabson, The Canadian Press. As part of an ongoing series on community changemakers, IndigiNews asked people to nominate those who are having an impact on their community.
When Darleen Lambert saw the call for community nominations, she says her first thought was Marchand. She explains that Marchand and his late Father, Gordon Marchand, are well-known master canoe carvers and cultural knowledge keepers in the Okanagan.
The ONRT is a group of community members who support Indigenous communities in the Okanagan area for suicide education and responding to a crisis or any trauma, according to Marchand.
What the contests won't do is affect the certification of Electoral College results by Congress. Lawmakers who were sworn into office this week will vote on the objections.
HOW DID WE GET HERE? Ever since Trump lost to President-elect Biden, he has made repeated and false claims that widespread voter fraud cost him the presidency.
Yet almost every single legal challenge filed on his behalf has been rejected by the courts, including the Supreme Court.
His own attorney general said there was no evidence of widespread fraud. That hasn't swayed some of Trump's allies in Congress, who are launching their hail-Mary attempt during the Electoral College certification to subvert the will of voters on Trump's behalf.
Trump can count on about a dozen conservative senators, as well as scores of House Republicans, to press his case by objecting to the certification of results from some crucial battleground states.
Democrats, however, control the House, and are certain to reject any effort to overturn the outcome.
Additionally, many Senate Republicans oppose the pro-Trump efforts. That all but guarantees that after hours of debate, Congress will certify President-elect Biden's victory, clearing the path for his inauguration Jan.
Republican David Perdue, who is seeking a second term in office, faces Democratic challenger Jon Ossoff. Separately, appointed GOP Sen.
Kelly Loeffler is running against Democrat Raphael Warnock to complete the remainder of retired Republican Sen. Republicans need to win only one of the races to secure a narrow majority.
Both Loeffler and Perdue have run as staunchly pro-Trump candidates. If he wins, he can retake his seat after the results of his election are certified later this month and Georgia Gov.
Brian Kemp issues a certificate stating he won. Loeffler, on the other hand, is still a senator. Her appointment by Kemp remains in effect until the winner of the election is sworn in.
WHAT DOES THE LAW REQUIRE? Bipartisan representatives of both chambers read the results from each state out loud and do an official count.
A surge of COVID patients has pushed Ontario past the threshold where hospitals warned surgeries would be delayed or cancelled. ICUs are stretched to the limit and some hospitals have had to find room for patients, and bodies, elsewhere.
OTTAWA — The head of the Ontario Medical Association says the risk COVID poses to pregnant and breastfeeding women is higher than the risk of taking a vaccine against the virus that causes it.
Samantha Hill, a cardiac surgeon in Toronto, says because pregnant and breastfeeding women haven't been included in clinical trials yet she is worried the message many pregnant women are getting is to not get vaccinated.
