Last week's death of a 22-year-old St. Thomas University student from India has been ruled a drowning.RCMP Const. Hans Ouellette said the cause of death was determined after an autopsy. He said police do not suspect "criminality" in the case. Aranyam Bora was cliff jumping at the Mactaquac Headpond on Wednesday when he slipped below the surface of the water and disappeared. His body was found by RCMP divers on Thursday morning. Bora was a fourth-year St. Thomas University student, majoring in political science and international relations. He was from India and came to New Brunswick to study. He was a competitive bodybuilder and martial artist and was in incredible physical condition, said his girlfriend, Milly Squires, a McAdam native and third-year St. Thomas University student. Squires is still baffled by the details. She said her athletic boyfriend knew how to swim. In August, the pair visited a waterfall near Welsford, where they spent some time in the pool of water. She said she never would have dreamed he could have drowned. "He was adventurous and he was, at times, a little reckless, yes, but he wasn't stupid," Squires said Wednesday afternoon. "I don't think he would have gone if he didn't believe he could swim."Another friend, Sayan Chatterjee, also believes Bora could swim.Chatterjee, who was designated by Bora's family members to speak for them, said he saw a picture of Bora. swimming but had never witnessed it in person. Chatterjee said his former dorm mate was also an avid fitness buff, "always at the gym lifting weights." He said Bora will be missed by a lot of people. Neither Chatterjee nor Squires knew whether Bora jumped feet first or dove head first from the cliffs at the headpond. Squires said the thought that Bora, who often went by Ary, was conscious for a time before slipping under the water "keeps me up at night.""Knowing that it was drowning and knowing that he did surface and he was flailing, it haunts me every night thinking that he could have been terrified or he would have been scared. Because Ary didn't get scared of anything. "
An heir to the Seagram’s liquor fortune was sentenced Wednesday to an 81-month prison term and immediately thrown behind bars for her role as an unwavering benefactor of Keith Raniere, the disgraced self-improvement guru convicted of turning women into sex slaves who were branded with his initials. U.S. District Judge Nicholas Garaufis gave Clare Bronfman the harsh sentence at a hearing lasting more than three hours and featuring emotional statements from several victims gathered in a courtroom under strict coronavirus safety protocols. The judge repeatedly scolded Clare Bronfman for standing by Raniere and his upstate New York organization, even after the evidence made clear she eventually became aware of his sex-trafficking scheme.
The Yalcin brothers had only opened their west Toronto bistro for about six months before the COVID-19 pandemic hit. Now, with sales down between 70 and 85 per cent from before COVID-19, co-owners Ali and Tolga Yalcin said they've been trying to adjust financially, while also working tirelessly to install safety measures and keep the number of patrons low to allow for physical distancing. "We quit trying to plan months ahead — it's days and weeks now," said Ali Yalcin. "Since April, we've had to rethink this whole idea of what a restaurant is, and how we can operate safely." But as of Wednesday, protocols around restaurants and bars across Toronto are changing once again.City council voted unanimously to approve a number of additional measures aimed at curbing a recent surge in COVID-19 cases. Under these new rules, restaurants and bars will now have to reduce the number of patrons from 100 to 75, reduce the number of people at a table from 10 to six, collect contact information from each patron at a table, and lower background music to the level of conversation.The proposal was introduced earlier this week by the city's Medical Officer of Health,Dr. Eileen de Villa, and quickly drew support from Mayor John Tory and Board of Health Chair Joe Cressy. "We know that if you reduce the total number of people [in a restaurant], you reduce the likelihood of potential slips in personal protective measures and therefore reduce the likelihood of the transmission of the virus," de Villa said during the council meeting Wednesday. Additionally, on Sept. 25, the Ontario government also introduced a new set of rules, including moving the last call at bars and restaurants, including nightclubs, to 11 p.m. Owners say they're constantly adjusting With the changing rules and regulations, the Yalcin brothers said they are constantly trying to adjust. "We've gone through so many transitions that I feel like we're just always trying to get ahead of the game," said co-owner Tolga Yalcin. Now they're bracing for another hit."All these new rules, they're welcome, but at the same time, we're thinking of the business side," said Ali Yalcin. Tory calls for year-round outdoor dining But there's a glimmer of hope for business owners like the Yalcins.Knowing the newly-approved measures will affect businesses — especially those already struggling — Tory called for enhanced support for restaurants, a motion that was also passed unanimously by council."I realize that these public health measures ... will have a negative impact on businesses that were struggling before, trying to keep the lights on and trying to keep people employed," Tory told reporters Wednesday. Despite the impact, Tory said it's crucial to put health and safety protocols first. "A healthy economy requires healthy people," Tory said. Under the umbrella of Toronto's CaféTO program, the mayor says city staff will work with businesses to introduce and support year-round outdoor dining. Other recommendations will require city council to: * Support the province in any actions it takes with the insurance industry to support small and medium-sized business by preventing astronomical increases in their insurance policies and premiums. * Advise the Ontario government to extend the regulation that allows those with liquor licences to continue selling beer, wine and spirits as part of a food order for takeout or delivery.Toronto COVID-19 bylaws extended The city's COVID-19 bylaws will also be extended until its first meeting in 2021.That includes the bylaws mandating physical distancing in public spaces, mandatory masks, public health measures for bars and restaurants and temporary COVID-19 amendments that cover apartment buildings. All of the these bylaws were set to expire on Thursday.The new rules come after Toronto Public Health identified COVID-19 clusters and outbreaks at several restaurants and bars in the downtown core. City officials also shuttered a handful of restaurants along King Street West for failing to protect the public and their staff.De Villa said it's now up to everyone to help stop the spread of the novel coronavirus. "This is not the time to panic. It is the time to act," she said at a city hall news briefing on Monday. Ontario could see 1,000 new cases per day Meanwhile, Ontario health authorities forecasted Wednesday that the province could see 1,000 new cases of COVID-19 a day by mid-October. Despite predictions that Ontario's trajectory will mimic that of Melbourne, Australia, which is currently under strict lockdown measures, health officials say they will continue to monitor the effectiveness of measures introduced across Ontario earlier this month. Asked if the province is taking a pause on introducing enhanced measures, Dr. David Williams, Ontario's chief medical officer of health, said public health officials are "continuing to assess the situation," since much of the province isn't seeing dramatically increasing numbers of cases. "If you do things too aggressively province-wide … there's a whole area outside of Toronto that is saying, 'Why is this impacting us?'"
An international team of researchers found that in some people with severe COVID-19, the body goes rogue and attacks one of its own key immune defences instead of fighting the coronavirus. There are two main arms of the immune system.
Lorna and Donald Burns are remaining optimistic they will get to their Arizona home in the new year.The retired couple are snowbirds — spending half of the year at their home in North Bedeque, P.E.I., and the other half in Mesa, Ariz. Despite land borders between Canada and the U.S. being closed to non-essential traffic until at least Oct. 21, they hope to travel to Arizona by air in January."We have been going there for five or six years in our RV, and then last November, we actually bought a mobile home in that park," said Lorna Burns."We're planning to go down and fly in and not do that long drive. Things are changing, or have changed, for us."The couple usually leave for their age 55+ active living community in October and return in the spring. They have pushed their departure date to early January due to the pandemic, but also said they'll change their plans if needed.Air travel OKDespite the land border restrictions, Canadians have still been able to fly to the U.S. during the COVID-19 pandemic, though P.E.I.'s Chief Public Health Office does not recommend it. "Non-essential travel outside of the Atlantic Bubble is still not recommended," said the office in an email to CBC News. "Islanders should give very careful consideration before travelling to areas outside Canada where case counts are high with widespread community transmission."According to Johns Hopkins University, the United States is still the hotspot for COVID-19 across the world with over seven million reported cases and over 200,000 deaths. The Burns said they are following the events south of the border as they prepare to potentially travel."We're watching for border restrictions at the moment. California, Arizona and Florida have no requirements for self isolation, but that could change, and those states have had high incidences of COVID, so we watch for those things," Lorna said."If we had to self isolate, it wouldn't be a big deal"No more repatriation flightsCanada's federal government is also not recommending non-essential travel at this time, but said the advice is not binding. "If Canadians deem their travel essential and choose to travel despite these advisories, they should be aware that there may be other safety and security considerations that may impact them at their destination," said Global Affairs Canada in an email to CBC."The Government of Canada may have limited capacity to offer consular services."> Hopefully the figures, the numbers in Arizona ... will be better than they have been. — Lorna BurnsA spokesperson for Global Affairs said Canadians may have a hard time obtaining essential products and services — including medications — while abroad and may suddenly be subject to curfews, lockdowns and quarantines under their government at their destination.Airlines may also suspend or reduce the number of flights without notice, making it difficult to return to Canada," the email said, adding that the Government of Canada is not planning additional repatriation flights, as it did in the spring when the pandemic first struck.Global Affairs also recommends Canadians travellers contact their travel insurance provider and verify the terms, conditions, limitations, exclusions and requirements of their insurance policy before they leave the country.Though they have yet to book a flight to Arizona, the Burns have already purchased their travel insurance through the Canadian Snowbird Association. The association — which has more than 110,000 members — has said it's hard to gauge at this point what percentage of its members will actually head south this winter and that many are stuck in a holding pattern.The Burns, and many of their Canadian and American friends who also travel to Arizona, consider themselves in this group."If we have to cancel for any reason, they will give us most of our money back, so we'll just wait and see how things go in January," Lorna said. "A lot can change."'Might not be the same thing tomorrow'Overall, Lorna said she believes the information provided by the governments to be clear if one knows where to look and takes the time to search it out."You have to kind of take responsibility yourself and search out the answers and realize that what happens today and what you hear today might not be the same thing tomorrow, so it's up to the individuals," she said."Hopefully the figures, the numbers in Arizona, in the greater Phoenix area, will be better than they have been, but again, it's something that we will assess."In the meantime, Lorna and Donald intend to enjoy the Atlantic Bubble, travelling to Nova Scotia in a few weeks."We're hoping things will level off and settle down by January, if not, we'll have to make other plans," said Donald Burns. "Staying home, shoveling snow, putting up with winter, not near as much fun."More from CBC P.E.I.
Country star Mac Davis, who launched his career crafting the Elvis hits “A Little Less Conversation” and “In the Ghetto,” and whose own hits include “Baby Don't Get Hooked On Me,” has died. Davis had a long and varied career in music for decades as a writer, singer, actor and TV host and was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2006. “Thank you, dear Lord Jesus, for letting us know the man to whom you gave the most incredible talent,” said Reba McEntire in a statement.
A federal judge in Montana on Wednesday rejected an effort by President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign and Republican Party groups to block Montana counties from holding the general election mostly by mail, saying claims that such a system could be marred by widespread voter fraud is “a fiction.” “When pressed during the hearing in this matter, the plaintiffs were compelled to concede that they cannot point to a single instance of voter fraud in Montana in any election during the last 20 years,” U.S. District Judge Dana Christensen wrote.
Bloc Québécois leader Yves-François Blanchet condemned during Wednesday's question period the “racist treatment” of Joyce Echaquan, an Indigenous woman who died on Monday in a Quebec hospital amid troubling circumstances. He offered condolences and called for justice for Echanquan, her family and her nation.
Quebec Premier François Legault says police in the province's red zones — regions where COVID-19 cases are surging — will be issuing $1,000 fines to those who violate newly strengthened public health rules.With fees, those fines will top $1,500 and can be issued for gathering in private residences or protesting without a face covering. Speaking during a late-afternoon news conference on Wednesday just hours before the new rules went into effect, Legault said the negligence of a few has led to the crackdown. "Lives are at stake. We want to keep our children in schools," Legault said. "We also want to protect our health network"Quebec reported 838 new cases of COVID-19 but no new deaths Wednesday. Since the start of the pandemic, there have been 74,288 confirmed cases and 5,834 people have died in the province. Home gatherings can lead to finesBeyond the few exceptions, such as for caregivers or romantic relations, house guests are not allowed, Legault said.Police are authorized to demand proof of residency and if residents refuse entry, officers will be able to obtain warrants faster through a new, virtual system that was established in collaboration with the Crown, the premier said."We had to give the police the means to intervene," said Public Security Minister Geneviève Guilbault.Normally the process for obtaining a warrant can take a day or two, but that won't work when police want to break up parties that very same evening, Legault said.He said people who shrug off the rules and host parties are "putting the lives of other people in danger."Protestors to be fined for refusing to wear masksQuebec made masks mandatory inside public spaces, like bars and shops, on July 18, but there have been several protests since.Now, anti-maskers will have to cover up if they want to march or police will be issuing fines.Guilbault said protesting without masks cannot be tolerated and she is not ruling out using force to disperse protests if needed."Eventually, we will cross that bridge when we get there," she said.All gatherings prohibited, travel discouragedLegault said all gatherings will be banned, even outside in public parks — an activity that has grown more popular in places like Montreal during the pandemic. "Police officers will start by trying to disperse the gatherings, but if people don't co-operate, fines can be given," he said.Legault said people from red zones cannot travel to orange zones to eat in a restaurant or gather in a home. They will face fines if they do. He said restaurants will not be required to verify residency, but police can issue a ticket if they catch people violating the rules.People should not travel between regions to pick up groceries or run similar errands, Legault said. People can go to their cottage, for example, as long as they bring their provisions with them. Legault made no mention of roadblocks, something that occurred last spring. However, Guilbault said signs will be posted, warning people they are entering or leaving a red zone.Guilbault said the idea is not to issue as many fines as possible, but to ensure people are staying in their zones and decreasing the spread of COVID-19.She said police will try to educate and inform before resorting to tickets.Back in the spring, hundreds of fines were issued to people who ignored the two-metre rule or threw parties at home.WATCH | Quebec steps up enforcement for new COVID-19 restrictions:Restrictions to take effect at midnightThe new restrictions take effect 12:01 a.m. ET on Thursday and are set to last for 28 days, until Oct. 28, in the red zones. The restrictions are: * A ban on home gatherings, with some exceptions, such as a single caregiver, babysitter, tradesperson or technician, allowed per visit. * All bars and casinos are closed. Restaurants can offer only takeout. * Museums, cinemas and theatres are closed. * Being less than two metres apart will be prohibited. Masks will be mandatory during demonstrations. * Houses of worship and venues for events, such as funerals and weddings, will have a 25-person limit. * Hair salons, hotels and other such businesses will stay open. * Schools will remain open.Libraries were on the list of buildings to close, but Legault clarified on Wednesday that libraries will remain open to borrow books only.
For Guillermo Nieto, a Mexican businessman who grew up smoking pot, the cannabis greenhouse on his family's vast farmlands in Guanajuato state is part of a bigger dream. One that involves deep-pocketed pharmaceutical companies. Nieto and several Mexican businessmen have spent years positioning themselves for a time when the country opens up what would be the world's biggest legal cannabis market in terms of population, where the drug can be lawfully cultivated and sold.
There's lots to know before getting your nostrils swabbed for COVID-19 at a Windsor pharmacy, so make sure you check these boxes before heading out. Last week the province announced that it has expanded testing to pharmacies, with three Shoppers Drug Marts authorized in Windsor and two others in Sarnia.Across Ontario, strict guidelines have been put in place for those looking to get a test done at a pharmacy.The main rule is that only those who are asymptomatic and have not been in contact with someone who has COVID-19 can receive a test. The person must also fall under one of five categories: * Living or working in a long-term care facility. * Residing or volunteering at a shelter. * Have been given a clearance for international travel. * An international student travelling into the country to start school after the14-day isolation period ends. * An Indigenous person.In Windsor, locations started testing on Tuesday.CBC News spoke with the Devonshire Mall Shopper's Drug Mart pharmacist Matthew Thibert about how testing has gone so far. "It's been busy," Thibert said. "I wasn't really sure whether or not we would see such a demand for it, but I will say that we have definitely seen a lot of demand." He said they've been taking calls since Friday evening and have completed 20 tests so far, but have done 50 phone assessments. The pharmacy is not taking any walk-ins, Thibert said, adding that people must complete a phone assessment before coming in to the store. The assessment will determine whether the person falls under the outlined criteria. WATCH | Local pharmacist Matthew Thibert explains what people need to know before getting testedLocations approved for testing in Sarnia and Windsor include: * Devonshire Mall in Windsor at 3100 Howard Ave. * Tecumseh Mall in Windsor at 7720 Tecumseh Rd. E. * Huron Church in Windsor at 1760 Huron Church Rd. * 2600 Lakeshore Rd in Sarnia. * Michigan & Murphy in Sarnia at 1206 Michigan Ave.
Alberta lost more people to other provinces than it gained in the second quarter of 2020, according to the latest estimates from Statistics Canada.The data show 2,733 more people left Alberta than moved here from April to June.It's the first time since the same quarter last year that the balance between incoming and outgoing interprovincial migrants shifted in favour of the latter.Alberta has been on the losing end of interprovincial migration most quarters since 2015.Despite the inter-provincial outflow and the drying up of international migration due to the pandemic, the province continued to grow due primarily to births outnumbering deaths.Statistics Canada estimates Alberta's population to be 4,421,876 people in the third quarter of 2020, up 4,870 from the second quarter.Blake Shaffer, an economist at the University of Calgary, says periods of out-migration from Alberta coincide with "periods of economic weakness," but that not too much should be extrapolated from just one quarter's worth of migration estimates."We want to see if this continues, so it becomes a start of a trend," he said.He said there are big questions swirling around the province right now when it comes to economic stability and politics and whether the province will make unprecedented changes, like pulling out of the Canada Pension Plan.
Police forces across Ontario engaged in broad, illegal searches of a now-defunct COVID-19 database, two civil rights groups alleged Wednesday, claiming the use of the portal violated individual privacy rights for months. The Canadian Civil Liberties Association and the Canadian Constitution Foundation said in separate reports that many services used the database to look at COVID-19 test results for wide geographic areas and sometimes pulled up personal information unrelated to active calls. "People weren't told that when they went for COVID tests that this information was being shared with police and they certainly weren't asked for their consent," said Abby Deshman, the criminal justice program director for the CCLA.
It appears that an election worker’s decision to throw out nine military ballots in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, amounted to a mistake and not “intentional fraud,” the state’s top elections official said Wednesday. Workers in the elections office in Luzerne County are getting training on handling mailed-in military and overseas ballots, Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar said during an online news conference.
For the just the third time in his life, 92-year-old Glen Greene got his moose. And his is one of a record number of successful hunts this year. "We went out Tuesday morning and it was just barely daylight," said Greene. "We drove by a woods road and there was five or six." His first shot missed. "At my age, my eyes aren't very good," said Greene. "After that first shot — bingo — they spread." But the "second rifle," a second hunter permitted to hunt under Greene's license, hit the mark. Greene's now waiting to hear back from the butcher "at any moment" to let him know he can pick up his hard-earned moose meat. "It dressed out at 540 or 550 pounds," said Greene.And he's not the only lucky hunter after this year's five-day moose hunt. According to preliminary numbers from the Department of Natural Resources and Energy, Greene's moose is one of 3,904 taken this year. According to the department, it's the highest number of moose harvested since a managed moose hunting season was first created in 1960. Prior to that, hunting moose in New Brunswick had been banned since 1936 due to a collapsing population caused by overhunting.When the hunt reopened in 1960, only 400 licenses were issued, and only for bulls. The population at the time was estimated to be around 3,500 moose province–wide.Herd 'relatively healthy'Since then the population has slowly increased, peaking in 2015 to an estimated 31,800 animals. The last population estimate, published in the province's 2019 annual big game report, pegs the number of moose in New Brunswick at around 30,900. CBC News requested interviews with a government biologist and the minister. Neither were made available. According to an email from Dept. of Natural Resources spokesperson Nick Brown, there were 4,794 licenses available in the 2020 moose hunt draw. That means that of the hunters who received a license, just over 81 per cent were successful in harvesting one. This year 215 more animals were killed over last year's total. "Weather conditions were better than average in 2020, and generally favourable to hunters for most of the moose season," wrote Brown. "Weather conditions... tended toward the calm, cool mornings preferred by hunters, and likely is largely responsible for the record moose harvest." Happy hunterAccording to the provinces last published harvest report the moose herd is "relatively healthy," although it goes on to say there are a lot of unknowns because of the number of moose being killed by "unregulated harvest." "The regulated licence allocation must be conservative to ensure sustainability of the moose population until a moose harvest and reporting system can be established that accommodates existing aboriginal and treaty rights." As for Greene, he says he'll likely apply for another moose license next year, although his odds of success will be significantly reduced.His previous hunt was in 2005, and before that in the early 1980's. But for now, he's busy contemplating what his first moose meat meal will be once it arrives. "If it was a little bit colder, I could tell you for sure it'd be a stew," said Greene.
Although bonus pay for some essential health-care workers involved in Nova Scotia's COVID-19 response has already gone out, others will have to wait beyond the anticipated arrival date to get their money.In May, the province announced it had reached a deal with the federal government to provide up to $2,000 for front-line and other workers who were part of the COVID-19 response from mid-March through to mid-July (up to $500 per month).Ottawa put $80.5 million toward the effort, while Nova Scotia chipped in with $13.4 million. The approach was not universally popular, with some people believing the province should have focused more on low-wage earners, as other provinces did.The expectation was the money would begin flowing by the end of September or beginning of October, however there have been some delays because some employers were late submitting their claims to the Nova Scotia Health Department.On Wednesday, a spokesperson for the province said to date about 80 per cent of the claims from qualifying employers have been received. Some of those, including the claim from the Northwood, which runs the Halifax long-term care facility where 53 residents died from COVID, were received more recently and are still being reviewed, Marla MacInnis said in an email.Employers distribute moneyMacInnis said some employers made the payments to their employees before receiving the funding from the department, while others could be waiting until the government money comes through before passing it on."It's important to remember that employers are distributing the benefit to their employees," she said. "How [and] when employees receive their benefit is dependent on employers' payroll systems and timing, so we are unable to provide to-date numbers."When the program was announced in May, it was billed as a pay top up for people who faced the greatest risk, as well as workers who helped with containment efforts.Eligible employees included front-line health-care workers, employees working in residential programs of the disabilities support program, shelter workers and transition house employees.It also included publicly funded continuing care providers, paramedics, 811 staff, laboratory staff and various staff within the Nova Scotia Health Authority and IWK Health Centre.Employers were required to have eligible employees complete a declaration form stating the periods they worked on front-line care and that they have not applied for or received any payment or benefit from the program from any other employer.MORE TOP STORIES
The gang rape and death of a woman from the lowest rung of India’s caste system sparked outrage across the country on Wednesday, with several politicians and activists demanding justice and protesters rallying in the streets. The attack of the 19-year-old is the latest gruesome case of sexual violence against women to rile India, where reports of rape are hauntingly familiar. The victim, who belonged to the Dalit community, was raped by four men on Sept. 14 in the heartland state of Uttar Pradesh’s Hathras district.
The courts have a definite role in helping to determine if Canada has breached the constitutional rights of 15 youths who are suing the government for its alleged failures on climate change policies, a lawyer for the group says. Joseph Arvay disagreed Wednesday with a federal government lawyer who argued for the case to be dismissed because a court should not step into the political arena when it comes to policy decisions related to greenhouse gas emissions that require international efforts to combat global climate change. Arvay told a Federal Court hearing he wants the case to go to trial, where he will ask a judge to get a count of Canada's emissions and how they contribute to the global carbon budget, which is the maximum amount of carbon dioxide that can be put into the atmosphere before temperatures rise worldwide.
Coquitlam RCMP are appealing for more victims to come forward after laying seven additional charges against Raymond Howard Gaglardi.RCMP originally asked witnesses or victims to come forward with information about Gaglardi in early July, when the 75-year-old was first charged with six allegations of historical sexual abuse against several youth at various Tri-Cities area churches, according to an RCMP statement.Police said at the time the alleged offences occurred between 1993 and 2007.Now, investigators say more victims have come forward with new information about more historical allegations dating back to the 1970s and 80s involving the Vancouver-area church Glad Tidings."[Victims'] courage to speak has led directly to these seven additional charges," said Cpl. Michael McLaughlin.Gaglardi associated with several churchesAccording to RCMP, Gaglardi offered therapy sessions to young people that he met primarily through their parents at church and also went by the name "Doctor Ray Gaglardi."Gaglardi has been associated with multiple churches in Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam, including Hillside Community Church, Austin Avenue Chapel and Evergreen Evangelical, the police statement said.Police describe Gaglardi as a white man with a slim build and grey hair that he might have dyed brown at the time of the alleged offences.He is five feet five inches tall and weighs approximately 154 pounds.Gaglardi has been arrested and released with conditions including: * Not to be alone with anyone under 18 unless he is in public. * Not to be alone with anyone under 18 unless that person's parents are aware of these charges."We want to assure them, and everyone involved, that our investigation is not over," McLaughlin said.Anyone with information about allegations involving Gaglardi should call the Coquitlam RCMP non-emergency number at 604-945-1550 and ask to speak to the Sex Crimes Unit (file 2019-38332).
In his first major speech in the House of Commons as Conservative leader, Erin O'Toole assailed the Liberals' response to COVID-19. He said they're too pleased with results that aren't as bad as in the U.S. when they should be comparing Canada to the most successful countries in the world.
