Starting in November, some travellers coming to Alberta from international destinations will be able to opt in for a COVID-19 test when they enter the country. Once the test is administered they would continue to quarantine, but if a negative result is received, they could leave self-isolation provided they get another test between days six and seven. Redmond Shannon reports.

COVID-19 cases are continuing to rise across the country, with some provinces hitting records in terms of new cases in a 24-hour period.

Mike Drolet reports on those numbers and the latest warning health officials have for Canadians.

Crystal Goomansingh reports.

It's another presidential election year and people are once again looking to the polls to get an idea of who could potentially win the White House. But in 2016, almost all pollsters got it wrong, underestimating President Donald Trump's appeal to undecided and third-party voters, resulting in Hillary Clinton losing in even reliably Democratic states like Wisconsin and Pennsylvania. Eric Sorensen takes a look at what went wrong and how pollsters have changed their methods in hopes of forecasting this year's election correctly.
