In a follow-up tweet, Couture clarifies that he doesn't vote.

"I mentioned my father being a former police officer. I really don't believe this world we're living in," he wrote.

The San Jose Sharks are not currently in the playoffs, but Couture’s Twitter bio states that he lives in both London, Ontario, and San Jose, California.

Eligible Canadian families with children under the age of six can expect to receive a little bit more money from the Canada Child Benefit (CCB) in 2021.

On Wednesday, May 12, it was announced that the additional CCB young child supplement (CCBYCS) will be paid out later this month.

The extra cash, which is up to $1,200 per child under the age of six, aims to help with the "unpredictable expenses of the COVID-19 pandemic," including child care, meals, clothes and at-home activities.

Families already receiving the CCB don't need to take any action to get the additional benefit. That said, they must file their 2019 and 2020 tax returns to access the payments. Those who haven't yet filed can still qualify for the CCB and the CCBYCS by completing their returns ASAP.

Eligible families with a net income of $120,000 or less will receive four $300 payments for each child under the age of six, starting with two payments on May 28, 2021.

The final two payments will be distributed on July 30 and October 29, 2021.

In a press release, the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) said the CCBYCS is expected to benefit about 1.6 million Canadian families and about 2.1 million children under the age of six.

L'annonce de Régis Labeaume soulignant qu'il ne solliciterait pas un autre mandat à la mairie de Québec a chamboulé le monde municipal. Or, il vient de présenter la futur candidate pour prendre sa place lors des prochaines élections municipales en novembre prochain.

Le maire Labeaume a prĂ©sentĂ© sur sa page Facebook Marie-JosĂ©e Savard, « la mairesse qu'il faut pour cette ville », qui prendra sa place Ă  la tĂȘte de l'Équipe Labeaume, qui devient Équipe Marie-JosĂ©e Savard.

« Nous nous tournons vers elle pour ce rÎle parce que nous la connaissons et que nous sommes convaincus, qu'en ces temps difficiles de pandémie, elle a les qualités qu'il faut pour prendre soin de la population et gérer cette ville dans les quatre prochaines années », écrit M. Labeaume, qui connait Mme Savard depuis une douzaine d'année.

Pour les personnes qui ne la connaissent « pas tant », comme le précise le maire, c'est « parce que Marie-Josée Savard n'a jamais cherché la lumiÚre », elle qui est au Comité exécutif de la Ville de Québec depuis huit ans.

Si Marie-JosĂ©e Savard devait ĂȘtre Ă©lue Ă  la tĂȘte de la capitale nationale, elle deviendrai la deuxiĂšme mairesse en quelque 413 ans, aprĂšs AndrĂ©e Boucher, de 2005 jusqu'Ă  son dĂ©cĂšs en 2007.

The City Council in Charlottetown, PEI, passed a resolution on Monday to revamp a controversial John A. Macdonald statue in town by Fall 2021 at the latest.

Passed by a vote of 8-1, the city's new resolution includes a plan to add another separate statue next to the original that is dedicated to Indigenous people in Canada, as well as a plaque that explains the "devastating role" that Macdonald played in the life of Indigenous people while he was Canada's first Prime Minister.

The bench that the statue of Macdonald sits on will also be altered so that people can no longer sit and take selfies with the former politician.

According to CBC, the statue has been vandalized four times since last summer, one of many John A. Macdonald figures that has been targeted by protestors who are critical of Macdonald's racist views and actions towards Indigenous people.

Similar statues have been vandalized in Ontario in recent years, and a Macdonald statue in Montreal was toppled and decapitated in 2020.

Someone In BC Is The Heir To A $1.9 Million Estate & They Don't Know It Yet

There is over $149 million in unclaimed money in British Columbia right now! 💰💰💰

Have you ever wished that a distant relative would leave you a boatload of money so you could become rich without lifting a finger? Well, there is over $149 million in unclaimed money in B.C. and that includes a $1.9 million estate that has yet to be claimed by its legal heirs.

According to the BC Unclaimed Property Society (BCUPS), there are a whole bunch of dormant accounts with forgotten assets that are just waiting for their legal owners to claim them. In its essence, it's basically a "lost and found" for money that's floating around and needs to be dished out.

"Most unclaimed accounts in BCUPS's database amount to between $300 to $500. The single largest unclaimed property payout by BCUPS was a $1.01 million estate made in 2019," says the press release.

But now, this $1.9 million estate is the largest-ever unclaimed account in the BCUPS database.

If you have a suspicion that someone may have left you some money, you might as well check and see if you might be a millionaire. Or, maybe you have a few hundred dollars waiting to brighten your day.

How do you know if you have unclaimed money?

In order to check the database and see if you're richer than you think, all you need to do is head over to the BCUPS portal and click "search." Next, you enter your name and if you're not an heir or heiress you'll get "There were no results returned with that name" in response.

If you are, it will say that matches have been found. All you need to do is click on the unclaimed property number that's been matched up with your name and submit an inquiry to find out if it's actually yours.

Ontario Is Encouraging Students To Get A COVID-19 Vaccine, But It Won't Be Mandatory

Ontarians over 12 are currently allowed to get a COVID-19 vaccine dose.

The provincial government announced on Wednesday that while they will be encouraging students to get vaccinated, it won't be mandatory.

In a press conference, Christine Elliott, Ontario's health minister, stated that getting a COVID-19 vaccine for Ontario students will require parental consent.

"As you know, many young people will require parental consent to have that vaccine or not. If the parents do not wish to have their son or daughter vaccinated, and that approval is required, it won't be forced upon them," she stated.

"We encourage people very strongly to receive the vaccine as soon as it's their time to protect themselves and their loved ones, but at this point, it will not be compulsory."

Health Canada has approved the Pfizer vaccine for children 12 and up. In a technical briefing on Wednesday, the Ontario government announced that they are looking to start getting children vaccinated by June.

It will take you past an old-growth forest, wildflowers and right to the cascade that tumbles down 12 metres.

Unlike many of the other waterfalls in the area, you aren't limited to a viewing platform.

Instead, you can walk right up the base of the falls to enjoy an up-close look.
