Two Men Went On A Disgusting Poop Rampage At A Tim Hortons In BC

RCMP have launched a "mischief investigation." 🤢

Somehow this isn't the first Tim Hortons pooping incident that's prompted police intervention in British Columbia.

We all remember the notorious video involving a woman assaulting a staff member with her own feces.

Now, police in Williams Lake are on the hunt for two men in "relation to an on-going mischief investigation."

"Just before 8 a.m. on April 7, front line officers from the Williams Lake RCMP were called to a coffee shop located in the 1000-block of Highway 97 in Williams Lake for a report that someone had defecated on the walls and floor in a stall in the men’s washroom," police wrote. 

Apparently, the two men were seen entering the men's washroom separately before the mess was discovered. Police have released photos so the public can help identify them and anyone with information is being asked to contact the Williams Lake RCMP at 250-392-6211.

Bordered by Parliament St. to the west and River St. to the east in Toronto's downtown, Regent Park has seen a lot of change over the years.

But as Toronto Historian Morgan Cameron Ross highlights in this episode of Then&Now, the changes implemented in this neighbourhood haven't always benefited the resilient community within.

The area we know as Regent Park actually used to be the southern part of Cabbagetown prior to it becoming its own area. Many of the houses that had occupied the neighbourhood were "some of the oldest in Toronto" says Ross, and "in the early part of the 20th century it was composed primarily of newly arrived immigrants, who faced many hurdles."

In the later part of the 1940s, Regent Park was developed as a public housing project with some of those older buildings being torn down. But the architectural layout "led to some of the difficulties" explains Ross, where "the buildings were constructed to be independent of the neighbourhood" and ultimately the community "struggled in some ways and thrived in others."

Further changes would come beginning in the early 2000s with a revitalization effort that Ross says has left the area looking "remarkably different from even a decade ago."

Ontario Top Doctor Says Vaccinated Students Will Have Different Rules For School ...

Chief medical officer of health, Dr. Kieran Moore, revealed on Tuesday that fully vaccinated Ontario students will follow a different set of outbreak rules once in-person classes resume this fall.

In a press conference, Moore told reporters that post-secondary schools' approaches on outbreak management will differ greatly depending on whether they're dealing with fully vaccinated or unvaccinated staff members or students.

Moore revealed that if students and staff who have been vaccinated are exposed to COVID-19, they will likely be able to return back to school much earlier.

"If you are two-dose vaccinated plus 14 days we will offer you a test if you've been in contact with a high-risk person," Dr. Moore stated, "So, someone that's had an ongoing fever and cough or increasing shortness of breath, and if you test negative, you can go right back to school, you can go right back to work."

"If you are not immunized and you've been in contact with the high-risk contact, you'll be off for a minimum of 10 days and you will have to get two tests, one initially and then another around day seven," he added.

Moore also noted that if the follow-up test is positive the student will be banned from school for another 10 days, leading to a possible 20-days off.

"So terrific advantage of being two-dose immunized."

Dans la foulée des amendes infligées aux handballeuses norvégiennes pour avoir revêtu un short plutôt qu'un bikini lors des Championnats d'Europe de handball de plage, une olympienne de beach-volley confirme que ce règlement n'est pas actif dans tous les sports de plage.

Ce mardi 27 juillet en matinée, la volleyeuse de plage québécoise Marie-Andrée Lessard a tenu à « rectifier le tir sur '' l'obligation'' » du bikini, notamment dans cette discipline. Celle qui a participé aux Jeux olympiques de Londres en 2012 précise que les athlètes de beach-volley ne sont pas « forcées [de] le porter ».

Le port du short au volleyball est effectivement admis par la Fédération internationale de volleyball depuis 2012. Certaines athlètes préfèrent toutefois jouer avec un maillot de bain deux pièces malgré les nouvelles options, selon Marie-Andrée Lessard.

« Je vous confirme que pour celles qui le portent, c'est parce que c'est ce qui est le plus confortable. Plus le maillot est serré, plus ça tient en place et moins de sable rentre à l'intérieur », fait-elle remarquer.

Cependant, le règlement de la Fédération internationale de handball est beaucoup plus strict. « Les joueuses doivent porter des bas de bikini [...] ajustés et échancrés » et « les côtés doivent mesurer au maxi 10cm », est-il précisé dans celui-ci.

L'équipe norvégienne a d'ailleurs écopé de plus de 2 200 $, selon l'Agence France-Presse (AFP), pour son non-respect de la règlementation de la Fédération européenne de handball (EHF).

CDC's Mask Guidance Just Changed As The Delta Variant Is 'Surging In the United States'

The CDC says some vaccinated people could get the Delta variant and "may be contagious."

On Tuesday, July 27, the CDC updated its mask guidelines for people in the U.S. due to the COVID-19 Delta variant that is "surging" in the country.

According to the CDC, this variant is much more contagious than other versions of the virus and "while rare, some vaccinated people can get Delta in a breakthrough infection and may be contagious."

They are advising unvaccinated people to get vaccinated as soon as possible and wear masks until they do. As for the vaccinated population, the guidelines have been updated to advise that they wear a mask in public indoor spaces in regions of "substantial or high transmission."

CDC

The CDC has a map to indicate transmission in various parts of the country. Places in red are considered high and places in orange are considered substantial.

"With the Delta variant, vaccination is more urgent than ever," said the CDC. The organization noted that fully vaccinated people are more protected from severe symptoms, hospitalization and death.

Blooms of toxic blue-green algae have been spotted all over Ontario this summer, and they can have negative effects on humans and pets.

Contact with blue-green algae from swimming, drinking or eating fish from water where blue-green algae blooms can be found can cause itchy, irritated eyes and skin, headaches, fever, diarrhea, vomiting and even liver damage in serious cases, according to Niagara Region Public Health.

Blue-green algae are microscopic bacteria that can be found in late summer and into fall in freshwater lakes, rivers, bays, streams, and ponds.

You can recognize blue-green algae blooms by their distinctive colour, which can resemble "turquoise paint." Heavy blooms often look clumpy and fresh blooms can smell like "newly mown grass," whereas older blooms can smell like "rotting garbage," according to the Ontario government.

Recent blue-green algae sightings

One of the most recent spottings of the algae was in Black Bay on Lake Superior. The water sample was collected on July 9, according to Thunder Bay Health Unit, and even though no toxin analysis was conducted, "water should be avoided whenever a blue-green algae bloom is present, and for about 2 weeks after it has dissipated, regardless of the toxin analysis results because blue-green algae can turn toxin production on and off in response to environmental conditions."

Two Island Lake and Hazelwood Lake Conservation Area both reported blue-green algae in June 2021, with toxin levels below the Ontario drinking water standard.

Niagara Region Public Health closed down the beach at Charles Daley Park in Lincoln on June 29 due to blue-green algae at the beach and in an outflow connected to it. It has since reopened.

In late May 2021, a dog reportedly died from contact with blue-green algae in Renfrew, Ontario, after swimming in a creek about 10 kilometres west of the town, off Highway 60.

If you spot a bloom of algae and suspect it is blue-green algae, your best bet is to steer clear of it and contact the ministry's Spills Action Centre at 1-800-268-6060.
