It all starts with the sound of skates carving the ice, followed by the whoosh of the skater evading defender after defender. Suddenly, there's the whip of the hockey stick as it connects with the puck, and then echoing silence as the latter travels through the air, glides past the goalie in his last-ditch effort to save the shot, and finally hits the back of the net.

And all those sounds lead to the most euphoric noise of all: the horn blaring as the Toronto Maple Leafs score. For fans, there's just nothing like the feeling of your team scoring a goal. It's not just that you're winning; it's that you can tease all of your friends who doubted you and your team.

To be honest, it can feel like winning a thousand bucks, and for several lucky fans, that's literally what it's going to be like. Because this year there is a chance you can win $1,000 every time the Toronto Maple Leafs score a goal this season.

It's part of the Scotiabank's Goals for Goals program*, developed in collaboration with Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment (MLSE) and it's super easy to get involved.

To enter, just go to the Goals for Goals website or the Toronto Maple Leafs app and submit your financial goals. These can literally be anything from your ambitions to buy a house to your desire to save for retirement or something in between.

After you input your financial goals, that's it. There are no super long forms to fill out, which means you can get back to the important things in life (like watching the Leafs game).

This initiative by Scotiabank is just another way that the financial institution is helping Canadians reach their money goals by planning for their financial future. They also launched ScotiaAdvice+ in September 2020, offering Canadians money tips to make the most of their earnings.

Applications for this program can be submitted until the end of the 2020-2021 season, and then a random draw will choose the winners. So keep your fingers crossed the next time you hear those tell-tale sounds of hockey excellence because the Maple Leafs won't be the only ones celebrating when they score.

Scotiabank's Goals For Goals Program

When: Until 11:59 p.m. ET on the final day of the 2020-2021 NHL Season

Where: Goals For Goals website or on the Maple Leafs app

Details: Each time the Maple Leafs score a goal during the 2020-2021 NHL Regular Season, one lucky fan from Toronto will win $1,000, deposited into a Scotiabank account. The more goals the Leafs score, the more winners there will be.

On Thursday, April 15, an argument that resulted in a stabbing took place on the west side of 11 Street S.W. at the CTrain station near Kerby Centre in downtown Calgary. Calgary Police say it's believed that the two individuals involved knew each other before the incident took place, as their altercation was allegedly a follow-up to an ongoing dispute.

Local investigators tried to find the suspect but found out that he had recently moved out of his home and may have left Calgary. Calgary Police say that Mathers is believed to have connections in London, Ontario, Halifax, and B.C.

Officials are asking for anyone with information on where this suspect could be to call the Homicide Tip Line at 403-428-8877, the CPS non-emergency line at 403-266-1234, or to submit an anonymous tip through any of the various means with Crime Stoppers.

If you've found yourself wondering "is the census mandatory in Canada?" or "what is the census used for?" this message from the prime minister may provide some answers!

On May 11 — census day in Canada — Justin Trudeau took to social media to explain why the 2021 census is so important and how Canadians' data is used once it has been collected.

The PM began his message by explaining that the purpose of the questionnaire is to help Statistics Canada "gather the information we need to build programs that work best for you and your family."

He added that "it is more important than ever" to collect data-driven solutions, as the federal government responds to the social and economic impacts of COVID-19.

"The 2021 census data will help us to continue to adapt to the pandemic's current and lasting impacts," he said, before urging all Canadians to fill out their questionnaires before the deadline.

Thanks to Canada's Statistics Act, all adults are legally required to complete the census. Failing to complete it could result in a penalty of up to $500 and can also be legally required by the court.

Police said they received reports of the drivers speeding and purposefully ramming their vehicles into one another. "The vehicles finally came to a stop at the intersection of 227th Street and 119 Avenue, when two men jumped from the vehicles and began physically fighting on the street," said a police report. The drivers had also hit several other vehicles amid the altercation.

"This type of behavior was completely dangerous and reckless. These two people were so engrossed in whatever their drama was that they weren't thinking about any other person other than themselves," said Constable Julie Klaussner. "Thank you to the public for the overwhelming number of reports and updates helping police to shut down this incident quickly. Thankfully no-one was seriously injured in this reckless event."

Both men were arrested and are now facing multiple charges.
