Russia launched referendums on Friday aimed at annexing four occupied regions of Ukraine, drawing condemnation from Kyiv and Western nations who dismissed the votes as a sham and pledged not to recognise their results. Ukrainian officials said people were banned from leaving some occupied areas until the four-day vote was over, armed groups were going into homes, and employees were threatened with the sack if they did not participate. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy said in a nightly address that the votes would be "unequivocally condemned" by the world, along with the mobilisation Russia began this week, including in Crimea and other areas of Ukraine occupied by Russia.

After a tornado ripped through Bruce Pit off-leash dog park in 2018 the woodland is lush with new growth, and it provides a good example of what derecho-ravaged forests on other National Capital Commission (NCC) land will likely look like in a few years.

Ottawa police say they are reviewing exactly what happened when a social media post about the murders of women this year was edited to remove the word "femicide."
