Fanaeian had just returned from a short tour of Europe when we spoke, in fact, although the release of “Attention Span” on Nov. 18 has generally flown above the radar here in Canada. “Attention Span” began to take shape in his mind, he recalls, during a brief stint spent living in Toronto in 2017 trying to jump-start his musical career during the aftermath of a breakup. And then it’s this weird, weird cycle that’s just kinda providing hits of dopamine to people. So I guess I just kind of felt that it’s very relevant to the time and what’s happening to person-to-person relationships. “And it’s not just dating apps.

© Darren Bernhardt/CBC Frost makes patterns on a window during an extreme cold snap in Winnipeg. Nearly all of Manitoba — excluding, oddly, where the polar bears are — is under an extreme cold warning. Environment Canada's weather alerts map has coloured the province red, save for the Churchill, The Pas, Flin Flon and Norway House regions. Temperatures around –30 C to –35 C, combined with winds up to 20 km/h, are expected to create extreme wind chill values of –40 to –45 on Monday, the weather agency says. Those extreme wind chill values are expected to moderate slightly during the day but the majority of the province will likely be plunged back into the deep freeze again Tuesday night.

Radziminski said the “significant RSV activity” last year was between June and October. In the Arctic, it can be up to 30 per cent of the babies or even more in remote communities. Inuit babies also get sicker and stay in the hospital longer. “We’ve known for a long time that Inuit babies have four to eight times the rate of hospital admission due to RSV, compared to the premature babies or the cardiac babies” with RSV, Banerji said. A study that Banerji was involved in compared sick and healthy Inuit babies.

McKinsey a ‘distraction’ from problem of consulting contracts, researcher tells MPsOTTAWA — A researcher testifying before a parliamentary committee on the rise in government contracts awarded to McKinsey & Company said the focus on that one consulting firm is a distraction. Clarke said the reliance on management consulting firms within the public service "betrays" the principles of responsible public administration. Clarke offered several solutions to address the problem of ballooning contracts with consulting firms, including pursuing a reform of the public service. Representatives from the Professional Institute of the Public Service of Canada, a union representing public servants, also testified on Monday. The committee will hold its next meeting on the McKinsey contracts on Wednesday.

On Wednesday, Alberta Premier Danielle Smith threw down the gauntlet, accusing the CBC of defamation and demanding that the corporation retract and apologize for its January 19 report someone on her staff sent emails to the Alberta Crown Prosecution Service challenging how it was handling cases stemming from last year’s highway blockade at Coutts. Well, don’t hold, your breath. A CBC report yesterday that quoted Henderson’s statement in full indicated it was drafted to respond to angry comments by supporters of the premier after Smith’s challenge was published. Henderson also noted that Smith has admitted she contacted Crown prosecutors and then later changed her story. So it would seem that Premier Smith can bluster and threaten if she likes but that there is not much she can do to prevent the CBC from pursuing the story.

BC will be the 1st province to take this step to treat addiction as a health issue, not a criminal justice one. https://t.co/jAa8Ehmcqt pic.twitter.com/0yMqnvvp6k — BC Government News (@BCGovNews) January 26, 2023How does decriminalization affect drug users? But the new decriminalization rules won’t help all drug users. “It’s important to note that in other jurisdictions that have implemented decriminalization, like Portugal and Oregon, there hasn’t been a lot of reported increases of this kind,” said Richardson, who said even before decriminalization, drug use in public and the existence of paraphernalia were already common. “Decriminalization doesn’t change anything about the currently toxic drug supply and may not impact the risk of overdose or other adverse drug effects in beneficial ways,” said Richardson.

With her salty laugh and her no-nonsense advice, Hazel McCallion charmed us, chastised us and loved us. To be honest, Hazel and I had some feisty conversations about development issues — especially when it came to the Greenbelt. Hazel was always impatient about the exclusion of women from work, politics or sport. Hazel told a great story about the fight in Mississauga in 1979 to allow women to be hired as garbage collectors. Kathleen Wynne was the premier of Ontario from 2013 to 2018 and the province’s first female premier.

For a while it looked as if the most interesting thing about the Leafs game against the Washington Capitals on Sunday was the pre-game celebration of John Tavares's 1,000th game. Morgan Rielly ended a season-long drought with his first goal, one of four the Leafs scored in the period, and Toronto went on to win 5-1. He raised his stick and looked to the rafters in a mix of celebration and relief after his goal. Tavares got on the scoresheet twice, setting up Michael Bunting for the Leafs’ first goal — after Nicklas Backstrom had given Washington a 1-0 lead in the first period — and Rielly’s go-ahead goal. William Nylander made it 3-1 with his team-leading 28th goal of the season, extending his point streak to seven games.
