This Pub Has A 'Toronto Leafs Poutine' For $67 & It Could Be The Worst In Canada (VIDEO)

Never has a menu item thrown so much shade.

When it's hockey night in Canada, you know we want to hit up the local pub for some beers and some fried food classics, but there's a Leafs poutine in B.C. that is a total joke.

Poutine is the most Canadian of foods to find at the bar, but at 17 Mile House Pub on Vancouver Island, they have a ridiculous version that would make any patriot shudder. 

A cold, overpriced dish served with underperforming gravy, ice cold fries and a side of disappointment

It's so bad that servers don't even want people to order it.

The pub is jokingly hostile towards Leafs fans and even charges a 2% surcharge if you walk in wearing the team's gear.

As for the offensive poutine, it's on the menu for a whopping $67 as a cheeky nod to the last year that the hockey team won the Stanley Cup back in 1967.

NOW WATCHThis Restaurant Near Toronto Feels Like You’re Next To The Mediterranean

Le 25 septembre dernier, un événement spécialement conçu pour les fans de Netflix avait lieu et plusieurs aperçus de films et séries ont été dévoilés. C'est d'ailleurs le cas pour la deuxième saison de Bridgerton, alors que les internautes ont pu avoir un avant-goût de la chimie entre Anthony Bridgerton et Kate Sharma.

La série, qui se déroule à l'époque de la Régence à Londres, met en vedette les huit frères et soeurs de la riche famille Bridgerton, alors qu'ils et elles apprennent à vivre leur vie à travers les moeurs du moment.

Tandis que la première saison, qui a atteint plus de 63 millions de foyers suite à sa sortie en décembre 2020, terminait avec le fait que Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor) et Simon Basset (Regé-Jean Page) accueillaient leur premier enfant, une deuxième saison a été annoncée un mois plus tard, soit en janvier 2021.

La deuxième saison mettra en premier plan Anthony Bridgerton, le frère de Daphne et dans un sneak peak de la saison à venir dévoilée sur Netflix, on voit Anthony, qui prend part à un échange tendu avec son nouvel intérêt amoureux, Kate Sharma, jouée par Simone Ashley, qui fait aussi partie de la distribution de Sex Education.

La date de sortie n'a pas encore été dévoilée puisque le tournage n'est pas terminé, mais selon Netflix, les fans peuvent s'attendre à ce que la saison soit diffusée en 2022.

Cependant, celles et ceux qui espéraient revoir le beau duc Simon Basset seront déçu.es, car il ne sera pas de retour. La nouvelle avait été annoncée au printemps 2021 et l'acteur avait alors mentionné lors d'une entrevue avec Variety que l'histoire des Bridgerton continuerait, mais sans lui.

Malgré cela, la prochaine saison s'annonce des plus excitantes et on peut s'attendre à voir une tonne de nouveaux visages comme la jeune soeur de Kate, Edwina, jouée par Charithra Chandran, et l'acteur Rupert Young qui interprètera un personnage qui n'est pas dans le livre.

Dans une entrevue avec le site Collider, le créateur de Bridgerton, Chris Van Dusen, a révélé ses plans pour six autres saisons puisqu'il y a huit livres. Toutefois, ce n'est pas chose faite encore et en attendant la saison deux, tu peux aller jeter un coup d'oeil sur ce à quoi tu peux t'attendre selon le livre!

PizzaForno is handing out free slices of artisanal pizza.

You Can Get Free Pizza In Toronto Tomorrow & Here's What You Need To Know

On a night out in the 6ix, nothing hits like some pizza. But sometimes a sit-down meal (and the long lineups that go with it) just aren't the vibe. Well, it turns out there's a more convenient way to order your next pizza.

A quick, easy and contact-free solution to your cravings, PizzaForno's automated pizzerias around Ontario (including their HQ on King Street East) are open 24/7, so you can get a delicious pizza in under three minutes literally anytime. And this week, you can try a slice for free!

PizzaForno is giving out free slices on Wednesday, September 29. If you're in Toronto, you can stop by anytime between 4 and 7 p.m. at PizzaForno's headquarters (225 King Street East) to grab a slice and a drink.

You'll get to enjoy some live music from local musician Carrie Chesnutt and see PizzaForno's automated pizzerias in action. This is your chance to try their pizza — free and fresh from the oven — for yourself.

Current public health rules and regulations apply at the event, so make sure you come wearing a mask and maintain a distance from others while eating to keep you and your neighbours safe.

Swing by the event or grab a slice from one of the automated pizzerias. There are eight mouth-watering pizzas to choose from (including pepperoni, deluxe and Hawaiian), so you really can't go wrong.

The machines are constantly being cleaned and maintained and their inventory is regularly updated, so you'll get a tasty, quality pizza every time. Bonus: if you're not ready to eat right away, PizzaForno also has a cold option. Take your pizza home, remove it from the box and pop it in the oven whenever you're ready to chow down.

There's no need to order ahead, just use your phone to locate your closest PizzaForno machine (there are locations on King Street East, Bremner Boulevard and Bayview Avenue).

The never-frozen pizzas are made fresh and loaded straight into the automated pizzerias several times per week, where, once ordered, they'll bake in the PizzaForno machine's state-of-the-art oven.

Once you've arrived, order the pizza of your choice using the touch screen (they're 100% automated, so you don't have to interact with anyone), tap your phone or card to pay, and hang out while the automated pizzeria starts baking your order. After three minutes, your artisanal creation will pop out the front slot, ready to eat.

C'est dans un long message publié sur Facebook résumant ses dix dernières années dans l'oeil du public québécois que le politicien Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois a annoncé, ce dimanche 26 septembre, qu'il sera bientôt papa.

« Au printemps prochain, mon amoureuse Maëlle et moi aurons un bébé. Il devrait venir au monde au mois de mars », a écrit celui qu'on a d'abord connu en 2012, au printemps érable.

« Je ne peux m'empêcher de sourire : ce sera un bébé du printemps, ma saison préférée. La saison de la vie, la saison des fleurs. La saison où tout a commencé pour moi, la saison de la résistance et de l'espoir », a-t-il ajouté.

Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois poursuit son message en avouant qu'il a certaines inquiétudes face à ce qui s'en vient :

« J'ai peur que la politique m'empêche d'être suffisamment présent pour notre enfant. J'ai peur que la prochaine année soit difficile, j'ai peur que mon amoureuse soit seule par moments, que mon fils ou ma fille s'ennuie de son papa. »

Il se dit toutefois rassuré de savoir qu'il est bien entouré et conclut en affirmant : « Je n'ai jamais été seul, j'ai toujours marché en groupe. Ça me remplit de bonheur et de confiance. Je suis tellement heureux. Voilà, c'est dit. »

Nature names for babies are set to become increasingly popular, according to a new prediction of popular baby names for 2022.

Nameberry has released a list of the top 10 baby name trends for the year ahead and it foresees a flurry that are "all about escapism."

Names that evoke "wild, rugged, expansive landscapes" are expected to trend in 2022, including Prairie, Dune, Ridge and Sequoia.

The other unique top choices within this category are Forest, Woods and Lotus.

"Beachy" names are expected to get a boost in popularity too, according to Nameberry, "Especially in the wake of the hit HBO series TheWhite Lotus, set in an idyllic Hawaiian island resort." This includes options like Bali, Bay, Coast, Reef, Horizon and Ocean.

It wouldn't be the only show to inspire a naming spree, either. The site also predicts a "Bridgerton boom" of Regency-era titles like Euphemia, Daphne, Eloise, Benedict and Hyacinth.

Top "fun and playful" choices for soon-to-be-parents include quirky names like Honey, Bear, Birdie, Cricket, Moxie and even Baby. Yup, Baby!

It's back, baby! Hudson's Bay has confirmed that Zellers has made an unofficial comeback in Canada via a pop-up shop in Burlington Mall, Ontario.

While the revamped version of the retro retail store is selling things like Canada-themed apparel, classic toys and more, some nostalgic features are unlikely to be returning any time soon.

For example, Retail Insider reports that mascot Zeddy will not be found at the pop-up store. For now, it looks like the iconic restaurants won't be reappearing either.

Although the new location might just fill the Zellers-shaped hole in your heart, here's a look at what else is unlikely to be found.

The restaurant

If the Zellers pop-up in Toronto doesn't have one of these, they're doing it wrongpic.twitter.com/KkVR1LYI6m

For now, it's unlikely that the classic Zellers restaurant is going to make a comeback alongside the pop-up shop.

The retro resto is nowhere to be found at the Burlington Mall location and — although a Hudson's Bay spokesperson has revealed that more pop-up locations could be coming — there has been no mention of reviving the fan-favourite restaurant.

The Zeddy Wheel

twitter.com

Everyone is talking about the return of Zellers, but are they bringing back the most fun mall ride of all time ? #Zellers #ferriswheel #mallpic.twitter.com/cs6eb8JvcT

Arguably one of the chain's most nostalgic features, the Zeddy Wheel is a firm favourite among fans of the retailer.

It seemed a lot bigger and more exciting when you were five, eh?

Sadly, there has been no sighting of this ride at the new pop-up and it's probably not a very convenient addition to the store, either.

The old merch

twitter.com

What is the point of a Zellers Pop-Up with no actual Zellers merch?! I can get a Cuisinart Blender on Amazon!

Upon hearing the news that Zellers was making a mini-comeback, some fans took to Twitter to talk about the best merch from the store's glory days.

"What is the point of a Zellers Pop-Up with no actual Zellers merch?! I can get a Cuisinart Blender on Amazon!" one person wrote.

Another added, "Zellers hasn't come back until they're once more selling Commodore 64s, BUM Equipment sweatshirts, and transparent touchtone phones. 1985-1992 Zellers or nothing!"

The diner

twitter.com

Bring back #Zellers Family Diner and you’ll have my heart forever!pic.twitter.com/zo5Rh5XBwo

As the pop-up store is located inside Hudson's Bay, it seems improbable that a model of the original diner will be available for dine-in any time soon.

This will be disappointing news for some Zellers-lovers, though.

"Look, if they're not [bringing] back the Zellers diner, I want no part of this nonsense," wrote one Twitter user.

The food

twitter.com

Zellers hot chicken sandwich is Canada's signature dish, and I will not be taking further questions at this time.pic.twitter.com/bC51O3WlmB

Without the diner or the restaurant, sadly it seems like the food is unlikely to be returning in the near future.

This one might be for the best though, right?

Discussing the intangible taste of the Zellers hot chicken sandwich, one Twitter user said, "You can get something similar at Swiss Chalet, but just doesn't taste the same as the Zellers diner. I don't know if it's the ingredients or the haze wafting over from the restaurant's smoking section…"

Club Z

twitter.com

I'm ready. #Zellerspic.twitter.com/hTmlW4WfgR

Diehard shoppers will remember (and possibly still have!) their Club Z plastic card.

The Zellers Club Z points program, which rewarded regular shoppers for spending, is unsurprisingly no longer active. The classic cards aren't available anymore, either.

The mascot

twitter.com

did no one else have a mascot in their zellers or is quebec just wackpic.twitter.com/aA1TekqxUz

There's more bad news for anybody who has a special place in their heart for Zeddy Teddy.

The mascot, who was a symbol of the store for years, was adopted by Camp Trillium after Zellers' final facebook campaign "EVERYTHING MUST GO!"

This was the end of a nearly 30-year era and Zeddy hasn't made any sort of reappearance just yet.

The intercom

twitter.com

I was the weekend “Thank you for shopping at #Zellers and have a pleasant day/night” voice over the intercom…. Throw in a few nights after school/university and it was better than kid sitting! pic.twitter.com/l5pFm2UZXd

Unfortunately for nostalgia lovers, the original intercom that welcomed shoppers to each store is not likely to be making a return for now, either.

Being welcomed to a store inside another store could make things pretty confusing!

The classic Zellers ambiance

twitter.com

They can try to bring back #Zellers but it won’t be the same unless the carpet floor is stained and has random toys and clothes thrown across the isles.

Ah, that je ne sais quoi!

"They can try to bring back #Zellers but it won't be the same unless the carpet floor is stained and has random toys and clothes thrown across the isles," wrote one fan online.

As awesome as Burlington Mall's new pop-up store is, it's almost definitely lacking that nostalgic, classic, old-school, inexplicable Zellers vibe.

We can still reminisce though, eh?

Yikes, Justin! Justin Trudeau has been Canada's prime minister for almost six years, but his time at Rideau Cottage hasn't been without its fair share of hilariously awkward moments.

From using the term "speaking moistly" and instantly regretting it, to accidentally roasting a reporter and even almost kissing Melania Trump, Canada's PM has left us cringing a little on more than one occasion.

In case you missed them — here are some of the most ridiculous things that have happened to Justin Trudeau during his stint as the prime minister of Canada so far. Prepare for some second-hand embarrassment!


The fake jog

twitter.com

Bonjour @JustinTrudeau #G7Biarritzpic.twitter.com/s89EOJo0ox

Over the years, Justin Trudeau has experienced his fair share of bizarre and awkward moments at G7 leaders' summits.

In 2019, he was accused of going for a fake jog in Biarritz, France, while attending a G7 conference.

A clip showing him running past a reporter ended up going viral, with a number of social media users suggesting the sprint was nothing more than a photo-op.

The "kiss"

twitter.com

Trump is holding Melania‘s hand while she almost kisses Trudeau. Looks like Melania found the G7 successful. pic.twitter.com/IKo0A7Cw5U

During the same 2019 G7 summit, an awkward-looking interaction between Justin Trudeau and Melania Trump hit the headlines.

The former first lady was photographed leaning in towards the Canadian PM and pouting as she greeted him, appearing to almost kiss him on the mouth.

In the picture, she can also be seen holding hands with her husband, then-President Donald Trump. Eek!

The comment

twitter.com

Oh man. Trudeau says, on wearing masks, that his understanding is it can be helpful as it prevents you from "breathing or speaking moistly" on others. "Ugh what a terrible image." MOISTLY. Our prime Minister just said "moistly," folks. More: http://CTVNews.ca .pic.twitter.com/3ihklc7yvz

Trudeau's "speaking moistly" moment in April 2020 could arguably be one of his most iconic moments as prime minister.

The awkward word choice went on to inspire beers,lip balms and even a music video that was one of 2020's top trending videos across the country.

Despite the cringe-factor, the PM says he doesn't regret saying it at all!

The hiccups

twitter.com

Here it is. A minute and a half of Trudeau's hiccups this morning. This guy has a way with words.pic.twitter.com/rl9qSwUndw

During one hilarious COVID-19 press conference back in June 2021, Trudeau developed the hiccups for over ten minutes.

He was even forced to apologize and say "excuse me" after his uncontrollable hiccuping interrupted his statement. Oops!

The slip up

twitter.com

im fucking cryingpic.twitter.com/3YL5KBGaR2

Just days before Canada's federal election in 2021, a video of Trudeau attempting to say the acronym LGBTQ2+ went viral for all the wrong reasons.

Responding to a question about the recent rise in hate in Canada, the PM slips on the acronym repeatedly and struggles to recover, before eventually doing an exasperated sigh. He gets it right eventually, but it's pretty painful to watch!

The pause

twitter.com

"We all watch in horror & consternation what's going on in the United States," PM Trudeau says after long pause when asked re U.S. president's controversial photo-op at D.C. church. Citing discrimination against Black & racialized Cdns, PM says Cdns must recognize own challenges.pic.twitter.com/rgdQoW3Z5T

Back in June 2020, a reporter asked Trudeau for his opinion on then-President Donald Trump calling for military action against protesters in the United States.

It took Trudeau a full 21 seconds to respond.

Unsurprisingly, the long pause ended up going viral and was even spoofed onThe Late Late Show with James Corden.

The photo

www.instagram.com

In 2021, a photo of Justin Trudeau alongside his G7 counterparts was shared all over the internet, thanks to the gloomy background, awkward smiles and weird socially-distanced poses.

The image became a meme almost instantly and Twitter-users didn't hold back on the world leaders.

The hair flip

www.youtube.com

Justin Trudeau Handsome Hair Flip Viral

In April 2020, Trudeau gave the world an almost NSFW hairflip that got everybody talking.

Unable to get a haircut due to COVID-19 related closures, the PM was rocking long and wavy locks that just kept falling into his face.

Running his hands through his hair, he sweeps the stray strands away without breaking eye contact with the camera. The clip, once again, went viral.

The insult

twitter.com

We’ve been working with our global partners over the past few days here at the @G7. We worked to address some of the most pressing challenges - ones that our countries and people around the world are facing - including COVID-19 and climate change.pic.twitter.com/61lE2ulAPv

Justin Trudeau's final news conference at the 2021 G7 summit ended with embarrassed laughter after he accidentally roasted a BBC News journalist.

Responding to a question about the lasting impacts of the leaders' conference, he said, "The impacts of this G7 will be felt long after the newspapers you write for will have been used to wrap fish."

After realizing his comment could be interpreted as an insult, he immediately backtracked and said that he "respects" the press and "the work you all do in a very important way."
