Burmese-Canadians urge Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to take further action against coup in Myanmar

The Burmese-Canadian community is calling on the federal government to provide more material support to anti-military protesters after a week that saw some of the deadliest clashes between police and demonstrators in Myanmar since the military coup in that country.  The Burmese Canadian Action Network (BCAN) sent a letter to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Foreign Minister Marc Garneau this week, just one day after police killed 18 people and wounded 30, according to the United Nations. "We, Burmese Canadians across Canada, are calling on the Government of Canada to provide tangible support for Burmese people struggling for freedom and democracy," the letter reads.

Filming at Leslie Street Spit angers local advocates who worry future shoots could harm wildlife

A recent film shoot on the Leslie Street Spit is opening up a conversation about whether film shoots should be allowed in the area.  The shoot, for an Apple TV series called See that stars Jason Momoa, has now wrapped — but members of the citizen advocacy group Friends of the Spit remain concerned about the long-term impacts on habitat for wildlife. "It's time for the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) and the city to stand up and to recognize that they've got an amazing resource," said co-chair John Carley. "If you have that asset, you protect it." Carley says built sets, cars and trucks all run the risk of disturbing the birds, insects and snakes that call the environmentally sensitive area home.  'There was a lot of heavy equipment involved,' said a Friends of the S...

Why Ontario pot retailers are worried about a new wave of cannabis stores set to hit the market

After a stalled rollout, Ontario is aiming to approve dozens of cannabis retail outlets each week with the goal of hitting 1,000 stores across the province by the fall. But the prospect of more competition, especially during a pandemic, has some in the industry predicting a shakeout in the marijuana marketplace.Vivianne Wilson, the founder and president of GreenPort Cannabis on College Street in the heart of Little Italy, opened her story on Oct. 17, 2020 after waiting almost a year to get it approved.

Wilson added that the retail experience is how she hoped to differentiate her store. GreenPort Cannabis employees fill orders ...

When Will Disney World and Disneyland Reopen Amid COVID-19?

Disney parks around the world have been shuttered for months in order to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus, and many Disney fans are wondering when they'll next be able to bite into a Mickey waffle or take a selfie with Cinderella.

"We can't wait to welcome guests back and look forward to sharing an opening date soon," said Ken Potrock, president of Disneyland Resort, in a statement. "We are encouraged that theme parks now have a path t...
