WASHINGTON — President-elect Joe Biden on Monday tapped Obama-era officials for top national security and economic roles, signalling a stark shift from the Trump administration's “America First” policies that disparaged international alliances and favoured deregulation and tax cuts.The picks include former Secretary of State John Kerry to take the lead on combating climate change. Biden is also expected to choose Janet Yellen, who was nominated by former President Barack Obama to lead the Federal Reserve, as the first woman to become treasury secretary.Biden's emerging Cabinet marks a return to a more traditional approach to governing, relying on veteran policymakers with deep expertise and strong relationships in Washington and global capitals. And with a roster that includes multiple women and people of colour — some of whom are breaking historic barriers in their posts — Biden is fulfilling his campaign promise to lead a team that reflects the diversity of America.The incoming president will nominate longtime adviser Antony Blinken to be secretary of state, lawyer Alejandro Mayorkas to be homeland security secretary and Linda Thomas-Greenfield to be ambassador to the United Nations. Avril Haines, a former deputy director of the CIA, will be nominated as director of national intelligence, the first woman to hold that post.Thomas-Greenfield is Black, and Mayorkas is Cuban American.They “are experienced, crisis-tested leaders who are ready to hit the ground running on day one,” the transition said in a statement. “These officials will start working immediately to rebuild our institutions, renew and reimagine American leadership to keep Americans safe at home and abroad, and address the defining challenges of our time — from infectious disease, to terrorism, nuclear proliferation, cyber threats, and climate change.”In the weeks ahead, Biden could also name Michèle Flournoy as the first woman to lead the Defence Department. Pete Buttigieg, the former Indiana mayor and onetime presidential candidate, has also been mentioned as a contender for several Cabinet agencies.In making the announcements on Monday, Biden moved forward with plans to fill out his administration even as President Donald Trump refuses to concede defeat in the Nov. 3 election, has pursued baseless legal challenges in several key states and has worked to stymie the transition process.Trump said Monday that he was directing his team to co-operate on the transition but vowed to keep up the fight. His comment came after the General Services Administration ascertained that Biden was the apparent winner of the election, clearing the way for the start of the transition from Trump’s administration and allowing Biden to co-ordinate with federal agencies on plans for taking over on Jan. 20.The nominations were generally met with silence on Capitol Hill, where the Senate's balance of power hinges on two runoff races that will be decided in January.The best known of the bunch is Kerry, who made climate change one of his top priorities while serving as Obama's secretary of state, during which he also negotiated the Iran nuclear deal and the Paris climate accord. Trump withdrew from both agreements, which he said represented a failure of American diplomacy in a direct shot at Kerry, whom he called the worst secretary of state in U.S. history.“America will soon have a government that treats the climate crisis as the urgent national security threat it is,” Kerry said. “I’m proud to partner with the president-elect, our allies, and the young leaders of the climate movement to take on this crisis as the president’s climate envoy.”Biden will appoint Jake Sullivan as national security adviser. At 43, he will be one of the youngest national security advisers in history.Blinken, 58, served as deputy secretary of state and deputy national security adviser during the Obama administration and has close ties with Biden. If confirmed as secretary of state, he would be a leading force in the incoming administration’s bid to reframe the U.S. relationship with the rest of the world after four years in which Trump questioned longtime alliances.Blinken recently participated in a national security briefing with Biden and Vice-President-elect Kamala Harris and weighed in publicly just last week on notable foreign policy issues in Egypt and Ethiopia.He will inherit a deeply demoralized and depleted career workforce at the State Department. Trump’s two secretaries of state, Rex Tillerson and Mike Pompeo, offered weak resistance to the administration’s attempts to gut the agency, which were thwarted only by congressional intervention.Although the department escaped massive proposed cuts of more than 30% in its budget for three consecutive years, it has seen a significant number of departures from its senior and rising mid-level ranks, from which many diplomats have opted to retire or leave the foreign service given limited prospects for advancements under an administration they believed did not value their expertise.Blinken served on the National Security Council during President Bill Clinton's administration before becoming staff director for the Senate Foreign Relations Committee when Biden was chair of the panel. In the early years of the Obama administration, Blinken returned to the NSC and was then-Vice-President Biden’s national security adviser before he moved to the State Department to serve as deputy to Kerry.A graduate of Harvard University and Columbia Law School, Blinken has aligned himself with numerous former senior national security officials who have called for a major reinvestment in American diplomacy and renewed emphasis on global engagement.“Democracy is in retreat around the world, and unfortunately it’s also in retreat at home because of the president taking a two-by-four to its institutions, its values and its people every day," Blinken told The Associated Press in September. "Our friends know that Joe Biden knows who they are. So do our adversaries. That difference would be felt on day one.”___Associated Press writers Michael Balsamo in Washington, Bill Barrow in Atlanta and Alexandra Jaffe in Wilmington, Delaware, contributed to this report.Matthew Lee, The Associated Press
The Los Angeles Chargers proved on Sunday that they can finally hang on to a lead. The next step is making sure opponents don't make it too close at the end.Los Angeles had a 31-13 lead midway through the third quarter against the Jets before New York was able to rally a bit. They were within one score at 34-26 and drove to the Chargers 32 with under a minute remaining before turning over the ball on downs.The Chargers gave up a safety in the final seconds to make the final score 34-28 and snap a three-game losing streak to improve to 3-7.“Even though we didn’t finish the way we wanted to, we still won the game so it’s better than the alternative,” coach Anthony Lynn said.The Chargers are one of the league's best teams in the first half. They have outscored teams by 40 points in the first and second quarters — the eighth-best differential in the league — and their defence has allowed a league-low average of 134.3 yards.After halftime, though, is another story. The 164 points allowed in the second half and overtime is tied for second-most in the league and the minus-53 points differential is second to Atlanta (minus-58). The 209.7 yards allowed is fourth worst.New York had touchdowns on its first three second-half possessions and Joe Flacco had 173 of his 203 passing yards after halftime.“They should have never had a chance to get back in the game. Simply shouldn’t have been that close, for sure,” said Keenan Allen, who set a franchise single-game record with 16 receptions. “It's not discouraging, but definitely embarrassing. Obviously, that’s a story of the whole season but even with a win, we will take it and try to build off of it.”WHAT’S WORKINGChargers fans were hoping Justin Herbert's haircut last week didn't have a Samson-like effect. It didn't. Herbert passed for 366 yards and three touchdowns against a Jets defence that came into the game last against the pass. Herbert had 277 yards in the first half, which is the most in the first and second quarters by a rookie quarterback in at least 40 years.WHAT NEEDS HELPLynn made changes to the punt coverage unit, but it didn't help. Ty Long had a punt blocked for the third time in four weeks. In order to avoid having a punt blocked with 8 seconds left, Long ran into the end zone and took a 28-yard loss for a safety.STOCK UPTevaughn Campbell has improved his coverage skills over the past three games. It finally paid off against the Jets as he jumped on a route where Flacco was looking for Jamison Crowder and picked it off for a 6-yard, pick-6 and his first NFL interception.STOCK DOWNCasey Hayward continues to get beat regularly on deep routes with Sunday's coming on a 49-yard heave from Flacco to Breshad Perriman.“Casey has to play the ball better, he’s in position," Lynn said. "I’m sitting here watching some of these plays and he’s right there with his guy, but he’s not coming down with the ball and that’s something that we need to fix.”INJUREDChargers: DE Uchenna Nwosu (shoulder) and Hayward (groin) are questionable for this week. Lynn did not have an update on LB Kyzir White. The team's leading tackler was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list on Saturday.KEY NUMBERS81 — Receptions by Allen this season, which leads the league. He has an eight-reception lead over Buffalo's Stefon Diggs. Allen's 835 yards rank eighth.NEXT STEPSThe Chargers make their fourth and final trip to the Eastern time zone when they face the AFC East-leading Buffalo Bills (7-3). Los Angeles is 1-2 when it goes East this season, beating Cincinnati and losing to Tampa Bay and Miami.___Follow Joe Reedy at http://twitter.com/joereedy___More AP NFL: https://apnews.com/NFL and https://twitter.com/AP_NFLJoe Reedy, The Associated Press

Canada will keep pressing China to improve its human rights record but has no interest in irresponsible tough talk, Foreign Minister Francois-Philippe Champagne said on Monday.

China subsequently detained two Canadian citizens and blocked lucrative imports of canola seed.

With Toronto and Peel Region in lockdown, Peterborough County politicians have mixed opinions about those living in those regions flocking to the Peterborough area to do some Black Friday or Christmas shopping. Trent Lakes Mayor Janet Clarkson said she doesn’t think the average person from the Greater Toronto Area is going to drive to the Peterborough region. “I can’t see people coming with what our area has to offer. There’s nothing at Lansdowne Place that’s going to attract anybody from Toronto,” she said. People living in the GTA likely expected a second lockdown was on its way, so most people who have wanted to do some heavy-duty Christmas shopping have probably already done it, or they’ll do it online, Clarkson added. But Asphodel-Norwood Mayor Rodger Bonneau said he expects shoppers from the GTA will come to the area. “I don’t know why though. I mean, you can buy so much stuff online,” he said. Sherry Senis, deputy mayor of Selwyn Township, said it’s just too soon to tell if people currently residing in an area that’s in lockdown will flock to Peterborough city and county. “I guess it remains to be seen as to whether they’re going to do that or not. I don’t think that initially that has happened, but they’re just starting the lockdown today, so it remains to be seen,” she said. Senis said she hopes people from the GTA region choose to stay there and shop online, but for those living in the Peterborough region, she said she hopes they continue to support local businesses. “It’s so convenient for people to go online and shop, but unfortunately you’re supporting the big guys and we really need to be supporting our little guys right now and continue to do that,” she said. The COVID-19 pandemic is similar to the Second World War, Clarkson said. “The only difference is this COVID-19 virus is truly a world war, instead of involving select countries. The whole world is now fighting a vigorous, deadly virus,” she said. Clarkson said she remembers as a child watching her parents with their ears tight up to the radio, listening to the advancement of their troops. “My father had been in the first war where they brought the Spanish Flu home and my brother was in the Navy in the second war. Just like that war, many people will be forever without their loved ones, and those who survive, in many cases, will have lifelong injuries,” she said. “We have survived horrific losses before with no ability to control them. This time, it is within our personal behaviour to positively impact the future. We must take this seriously if we don’t want to have more empty spaces in our lives, or forever damaged family members.” Marissa Lentz is a staff reporter at the Examiner, based in Peterborough.

LANSING, Mich. — After weeks of delay, the federal government acknowledged President-elect Joe Biden was the “apparent winner” of the Nov. 3 election on Monday and cleared the way for co-operation on a transition of power. The move came after President Donald Trump suffered yet more legal and procedural defeats in his futile effort to overturn the election with baseless claims of fraud. Trump’s effort to stave off the inevitable — formal recognition of his defeat — is facing increasingly stiff resistance from the courts and fellow Republicans with just three weeks to go until the Electoral College meets to certify Biden’s victory. Time and again, Trump’s challenges and baseless allegations of widespread conspiracy and fraud have been met with rejection as states move forward with confirming their results. In Michigan, the Board of State Canvassers, which has two Republicans and two Democrats, confirmed the state results on a 3-0 vote with one GOP abstention. Trump and his allies had hoped to block the vote to allow time for an audit of ballots in Wayne County, where Trump has claimed without evidence that he was the victim of fraud. Biden crushed the president by more than 330,000 votes there. Under Michigan law, Biden claims all 16 electoral votes. Biden won the state by 2.8 percentage points — a larger margin than in other states where Trump is contesting the results like Georgia, Arizona, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania. “The board’s duty today is very clear,” said Aaron Van Langevelde, the Republican vice chair. “We have a duty to certify this election based on these returns. That is very clear." Some Trump allies had expressed hope that state lawmakers could intervene in selecting Republican electors in states that do not certify. That longshot and legally dubious bid is no longer possible in Michigan. Gov. Gretchen Whitmer said in a statement after the vote that it was “time to put this election behind us.” “President-elect Biden won the State of Michigan by more than 154,000 votes, and he will be our next president on January 20th." The Trump legal team dismissed the certification as “simply a procedural step" and insisted it would fight on. Mary Ellen Gurewitz, an attorney for the state Democratic Party, told the canvassers that attacks on the election results were "part of a racist campaign, directed by soon-to-be former President Trump, to disparage the cities in this country with large Black populations, including Detroit, Philadelphia and Milwaukee.” Trump has tried to defy the results of the election through the courts. Having no luck there, he moved on to trying to personally influence local lawmakers to ignore the popular vote and appoint Republican electors, a strategy that would send Americans into the streets in protest, election law experts have said. Two local GOP canvassers who certified Wayne County results last week unsuccessfully tried to reverse course after being called by Trump. Trump met with top Michigan GOP legislators at the White House on Friday and tweeted over the weekend: “We will show massive and unprecedented fraud!” Trump was facing setbacks in other battleground states as well. In Pennsylvania, a conservative Republican judge shot down the Trump campaign’s biggest legal effort with a scathing ruling that asked why he would disenfranchise 7 million voters with no evidence to back the campaign's claims and an inept legal argument at best. But Trump's lawyers still hope to block the state’s certification, quickly appealing to the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia. The court ordered lawyers to file a brief Monday but did not agree to hear oral arguments. The campaign, in its filings, asked for urgent consideration so it could challenge the state election results before they are certified next month. If not, they will seek to decertify them, the filings said. Trump's team insisted it did not want to invalidate all of the 6.8 million ballots cast in the state. Instead, the lawyers said they were taking aim at seven Democratic-leaning counties where they take issue with how mail-in ballots were handled. “Appellants seek to exclude the defective mail ballots which overwhelming favoured Biden, which may turn the result of the election,” they said in a filing Monday. Biden won Pennsylvania by more than 80,000 votes. Other litigation has failed to change a single vote. Pennsylvania county election boards were voting on Monday, the state deadline, on whether to certify local election results to the Department of State. The boards in two populous counties divided along party lines, with majority Democrats in both places voting to certify. After all counties have sent certified results to Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar, she must then tabulate, compute and canvass votes for all races. The law requires her to perform that task quickly but does not set a specific deadline. In Wisconsin, a recount in the state’s two largest liberal counties moved into its fourth day at a slow pace, with election officials in Milwaukee County complaining that Trump observers were hanging up the process with frequent challenges. Trump’s hope of reversing Biden’s victory there depends on disqualifying thousands of absentee ballots -- including the in-person absentee ballot cast by one of Trump’s own campaign attorneys in Dane County. ___ Associated Press Writers Maryclaire Dale in Philadelphia, Mark Scolforo in Harrisburg, Pa., Christina A.
