TPS Arrested Someone For The Toronto Islands Attack But They're Looking For​ 2 Witnesses

Someone allegedly made homophobic comments before the attack took place.

Police have made an arrest in the allegedly hate-motivated Toronto Islands attack, but the investigation is continuing.

Elijah McGibbon, 24, was arrested and charged with aggravated assault on Saturday, June 19, two weeks after the attack took place at Hanlan's Point at Toronto Island.

According to police, a 24-year-old man and a 27-year-old woman were walking near Hanlan's Point when they were confronted by a group of people, one of whom made homophobic comments towards the victims. A woman in the group grabbed one of the victims and two more men began "punching and kicking" the man.

A GoFundMe set up after the fact identified the man as David Gomez and said the attackers had broken his nose, cheekbone and orbital bone, and left him with a splint in his hip and a concussion.

Police say the investigation is ongoing and that they're looking for two witnesses in particular — two women who are described as "white, in their 20s and with brown hair."

Ottawa Redblacks player Chris Larsen was at one point being investigated after allegations that he was involved in the attack. Larsen's lawyer told Narcity that he is no longer a suspect.

Le Théodore TOO est l'ambassadeur des Grands Lacs et de l'industrie maritime au pays, l'arrêt dans la métropole fait donc partie de sa tournée.

Il prendra « la température de l'eau de surface durant les escales dans différents ports et alimentera en temps réel la localisation et la température de l'eau ».

« Nous devons assurer l'accès à une eau propre et promouvoir l'emploi dans un des secteurs les plus vitaux et axés sur les compétences de notre pays », a déclaré, le propriétaire du bateau, Blair McKeil, dans un communiqué.

Le Théodore TOO devrait entrer dans les eaux de Montréal le 27 juin, son emplacement exact sera annoncé à l'approche de son arrivée.

Here's How Past Winners Of The $70M Lotto Max Jackpot Won Their Millions

The $70M jackpot is still up for grabs in Canada right now.

Another Lotto Max draw has gone by without anybody winning the $70 million jackpot, which means there is a total of $140 million in prizes up for grabs on June 22.

The string of record-breaking prizes has made headlines around the country, and many people will no doubt be itching to get their hands on the jackpot. But when it comes to buying a ticket, how should Canadians play in order to win $70 million or more?

The $70 million jackpot has been won six times in the two years it's been around — four in Ontario and two in Quebec — and if their wins tell us anything, it's that free play and quick play tickets are the way to go.

Of the four winning Ontario tickets, two were quick plays and the other two were bought with free-play winnings. Most winners were regular lottery players, too — Brampton's Adlin Lewis had been playing the lottery for 20 years before he won and ex-colleagues Donna Williamson and David Overall had been playing together for over a decade when they finally struck big.

However, there is still hope for people who don't regularly play the odds. One lottery winner in April 2020 was an "occasional" lottery ticket buyer, who only played when big numbers were up for grabs. And in November 2020, a woman in Montreal won the $70 million jackpot with the first lottery ticket she'd ever bought.

Il était difficile de te réchauffer sans faire brûler une bûche lors de tes escapades en camping. Eh bien sache que cette époque est révolue : l'interdiction des feux à ciel ouverts dans une douzaine de régions du Québec émise le 9 juin dernier est désormais levée.

« Lee ministère des Forêts, de la Faune et des Parcs a décidé de lever l'interdiction de faire des feux à ciel ouvert en forêt ou à proximité. Cette décision, prise en collaboration avec la Société de protection des forêts contre le feu (SOPFEU), entraîne donc la levée totale de l'interdiction à compter du 19 juin à midi », peut-on lire dans un communiqué de la SOPFEU.

Il y a toujours 23 incendies de forêt en activité, « mais les opérations de lutte progressent rondement, tous les incendies étant contenus ou maîtrisés », selon la même source.

Pour contenir ces incendies, la SOPFEU avait dû demander de l'aide à environ 200 pompiers forestiers venant du Nouveau-Brunswick et de la Colombie-Britannique. Ils sont arrivés le 11 et 12 juin au Québec.

Notons que « depuis le début de la saison de protection, 397 incendies ont touché 7567,3 hectares de forêt ».

« La moyenne des dix dernières années à la même date est de 217 incendies pour 10 130 hectares de forêt ».

Here's What You'll Be Allowed To Do When Alberta 'Opens For Good' On July 1

Get ready for as many indoor gatherings as you can handle!

The latest Alberta reopening announcement was music to Albertan ears — the province is almost completely opening up on Canada Day.

Premier Jason Kenney announced on Friday, June 18, that the province would be moving to Stage 3 on Thursday, July 1 — not just open for summer, Kenney said, but "open for good."

In reality, it's not entirely back to normal, but there are some significant changes to Alberta's restrictionson the horizon.

For starters, the general indoor mask restriction will be lifted, meaning businesses will no longer be required to tell their customers to wear masks. However, Alberta says some mask-wearing may be required in "limited and specific settings."

People with COVID-19 still need to adhere to Alberta's isolation rules, as well, and some rules remain in certain health care settings.

But other than that, all other COVID-19 restrictions will be lifted, meaning no more limits on indoor/outdoor gatherings, sports or fitness, or crowd sizes at festivals or events.

Restaurants and retailers can open to full capacity, and more people can return to in-person worship and office work. There also will no longer be advisories against non-essential travel, as long as Albertans follow restrictions in other jurisdictions.

Alberta says more info on Stage 3 will be coming in the future, but in the meantime, the countdown to lifted restrictions starts now.

La Santé publique a autorisé mercredi 15 juin 1 000 fans de plus au Centre Bell. Pourtant, l'ambiance du troisième match des demi-finales du Canadien face au Golden Knights, à Montréal ce 18 juin, n'avait rien avoir comparée à celle du dernier match aux États-Unis.

Après avoir annoncé 3 500 places au total au Centre Bell, Christian Dubé avait précisé sur Twitter qu' « un maximum de 14 sections avec limite de 250 personnes » était possible.

À Vegas, 18 000 spectateur.rices sont autorisé.es. La T-Mobile Arena était bondée de monde pour les deux premiers matchs de la série éliminatoire.

À Montréal, on peut voir que 15 sections étaient fermées au public et recouvertes par une bâche publicitaire.

Les gradins étaient donc pleins à craquer à Vegas et il n'y avait pas de distanciation sociale.

Tandis qu'au Centre Bell, on a pu constater que des sièges étaient vides au premier rang.

À Vegas, les supporters ne portent pas de masque.

Alors qu'on peut voir dans ce carrousel de photos qu'à Montréal, le couvre visage était de rigueur.

Même si l'ambiance était moins festive qu'aux États-Unis dans l'aréna du Centre Bell, cela n'a pas empêché les Canadiens de Montréal de gagner le troisième match des demi-finales grâce au but gagnant d'Anderson en prolongation.

The weather's getting warmer and that means people are thinking about summer vacations, but new data shows that travel plans will look a little bit different this year.

According to a report put out by Tripadvisor, which looks at how people are planning and booking trips this summer, cities are the top choice for vaccinated travellers but nature attractions are still in high demand.

Tripadvisor says that 31.2% of experience and activity searches on its site are for nature and parks, 25.6% are for sights and landmarks, 9.4% are for shopping, and 4.2% are for outdoor activities.

In-person shopping has seen a rise in searches this year, which makes that percentage comparable to the searches for the same activity during this time in 2019, before the COVID-19 pandemic.

Another report from Tripadvisor in 2020 revealed that 52% of people were more likely to take an outdoor or nature trip than they were before the pandemic, which might explain why 35.4% of Tripadvisor searches this year were for outdoor activities, nature or parks.

Other top searches this year are 9.1% for tours, 6.9% for museums, 3.8% for fun and games, and 3.5% for spas and wellness.

A recent travel survey of Canadians found that 20% of those who are vaccine-hesitant would be ready to lie about their vaccination status if immunization are mandatory to travel again.
