According to CBC News, the provincial government is launching an online database to help connect patients with family doctors.

The promise to have the majority of Quebec have family doctors was made in an agreement with the Federation de medecins omnipraticiens du Quebec last May.

The United Nations says that Boko Haram's use of child suicide bombers is rising, as they are forcing children as young as eight years old, and mostly girls, to die for their cause.

According to The Globe and Mail, the tactic comes as the extremist terror group tries to regain territory in Nigeria.

Known for its religious fear-mongering campaign, the group has been raiding schools and kidnapping children to use as soldiers.

A recent UN report says that one-fifth of the 150 suicide bombings recorded last year involved children.

The report also noted that this tactic has been one of the most horrific aspects of violence in Nigeria and West Africa.
