Labour pain, supplied by Ford, April 18I was struck by the story in the Star of a teacher who has worked for less than one year teaching and who is worried about losing her job and states that “you work your entire career to get to the point of stability.” Really? After one year? How about those in the private sector (where there is no such thing as job stability whatsoever) who have worked 25, 30 years and more who find themselves unemployed because of downsizing or outsourcing or companies declaring bankruptcy? The public sector workers and teachers in general have been immune to job losses or wage cuts or lost benefits in spite of the state of the economy; something the private sector deals with daily. Carl Poulton, BurlingtonIndeed, each of these previous governments had to put up with the intolerable insolence of these pampered babies who had no right to be upset with the following:A) Forced unpaid Rae days and the loss of instructional time during Rae’s “social contract”;

Brooke Henderson didn't join the LPGA Tour thinking she would end up amongst the best Canadian golfers of all-time. Henderson tied the Canadian record for most career victories on the LPGA or PGA Tour on Saturday when the 21-year-old captured her eighth career title by shooting a 2-under 70 to win the Lotte Championship for the second year in a row. Sandra Post had eight career victories on the LPGA Tour between 1968 and 1981, while Mike Weir and George Knudson equalled that on the PGA Tour. "When I was younger it was just a goal to be on the LPGA Tour, to win my first event," Henderson said. Unbelievable title defense and tying Sandra Post’s record for most wins by a Canadian on the <a href="https://twitter.com/LPGA?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@LPGA</a> tour.

A SpaceX capsule designed to ferry NASA astronauts to the International Space Station suffered a failure during an engine test Saturday afternoon that sent a billowing plume of smoke into the air over Cape Canaveral, Florida. In a statement, the company said the failure occurred as it was conducting "a series of engine tests." It hopes to fly astronauts to the space station as soon as this year as part of NASA's "commercial crew program." Reports from local media outlets showed a large reddish cloud of smoke that, according to Florida Today, "could be seen for miles." Earlier this year, SpaceX conducted a successful uncrewed test flight of its spacecraft, known as Crew Dragon, which flew to the space station, docked and then returned home.
GEORGE TOWN: Five more enforcement officers from the Penang Road Transport Department (JPJ) have been remanded for seven days at a magistrate's court here. This brings the total number of suspects being remanded over the alleged involvement in a lorry protection racket to 35. On Saturday (April 20), MACC arrested 22 enforcement officers from the Penang JPJ, believed to be involved in "protecting" lorry drivers. The payment was an inducement to not take action against lorry drivers who committed road offences. The payment was also for tip-offs, which the companies and drivers received to alert them about JPJ operations.

John A. Radavich, 24, has pleaded not guilty to killing Robert J. Tester, 35, the senator’s nephew, in the 2016 attack at the younger Tester’s home in Spangle, Washington. According to court records, Tester’s daughter, who was 8 at the time, called her grandmother on Sept. 6, 2016, to say that a man she didn’t know had broken into their home and killed her father.

Radavich told the friend he had killed Tester because he believed Tester had assaulted his ex-girlfriend. During the same recorded phone call, Radavich said the only other person he told of the killing was the former girlfriend.

DETROIT — The Milwaukee Bucks know they are often considered a one-man team. On a night where Giannis Antetokounmpo was limited by foul trouble, the Bucks had seven players score in double figures and beat the Detroit Pistons 119-103 to take a 3-0 lead in the first-round series. The Bucks overcame 27 points, seven rebounds and six assists from Blake Griffin in his return from a right knee injury. Pistons: The game was the first post-season game in Little Caesars Arena history. The Pistons and Red Wings both missed the playoffs in 2017-18 and the Red Wings missed again this season.

ST. LOUIS — Jaden Schwartz scored three times and Jordan Binnington stopped 18 shots to help the St. Louis Blues beat the Winnipeg Jets 3-2 in Game 6 of their playoff series Saturday night to advance to the second round. The Blues will next face the winner of the Dallas-Nashville series, which the Stars lead 3-2. The Blues became the first home team to win in the series, and advanced to the second round for the third time in four years. Schwartz, who had only 11 goals in the regular season, has four in the playoffs — the Blues’ last four, starting the tiebreaking tally with 15 seconds left in the 3-2 win in Game 5. The Predators lost back-to-back playoff games for the first time since Games 5 and 6 of the 2017 Stanley Cup Final.

The sound of drums was steady and a "skunky" odour hung in the air Saturday afternoon at the Alberta Legislature. Marijuana legalization may have happened in October but that didn't stop the annual 420 rally at the legislature because some say the fight is not over yet. Kenneth Kirk, leader of the Alberta Marijuana Party, says parties like his are even more important after legalization. (Scott Neufeld/CBC)"There are 13 sets of pot laws across the country now where there used to be one," Kirk says. "There's a whole bunch of regulations in those 13 sets of pot laws which are yet to be tested on constitutionality."

The Blues would have home ice if Dallas wins the series and open on the road if Nashville were to win. Jaden Schwartz scored the St. Louis Blues’ final four goals of the series, including a hat trick on Saturday as they beat the Winnipeg Jets 3-2 to win the NHL first-round matchup in six games. Schwartz completed the Blues’ first playoff hat trick since Vladimir Tarasenko had one against Minnesota on April 18, 2015 in the third period. Instead, O’Reilly, Schenn and Schwartz, with 15 seconds to play, scored as the Blues pulled out a dramatic win and gave the Jets a punch to the gut. Winnipeg got a short-handed goal with 37.7 seconds to play by Bryan Little that made for an interesting final few seconds.

ANAHEIM, Calif. — Los Angeles Angels slugger Albert Pujols has tied Babe Ruth for fifth place in baseball history with his 1,992nd career RBI. Pujols drove home Andrelton Simmons with a double off Seattle’s Yusei Kikuchi in the third inning Saturday night. Pujols only tied Ruth according to baseball’s official starting point for the mark. RBIs weren’t an official statistic until 1920, and Ruth’s career began in 1914 with the Boston Red Sox. Pujols is also closing in on Lou Gehrig (1,994) and Barry Bonds (1,996) on the career RBI chart.

“It’s getting to the point where it literally doesn’t make sense,” Braun said of Yelich’s early season performance. Yelich hit Ryu’s first pitch of the sixth into the right-field seats for a 2-0 lead. “He’s surpassing anything we could draw up or imagine right now.”The soft-spoken Yelich said he’s not focused on his record-breaking accomplishments. Kershaw is 6-5 with a 2.86 ERA in 14 career regular season starts against the Brewers. Brewers: RHP Brandon Woodruff (2-1, 5.23) will make his fifth start of the season and first against the Dodgers in the finale of the four-game series.

MORE LEGENDS SET TO FALLAfter passing Babe Ruth for fifth place on baseball’s career RBI chart, Albert Pujols can eclipse two more all-time greats: Lou Gehrig and Barry Bonds. Ruth’s career began in 1914, but baseball’s official records don’t count his RBIs with the Boston Red Sox before 1920. Maddon did not rule out a return for a three-game series against the Los Angeles Dodgers at Wrigley Field that starts Tuesday. Clayton Kershaw makes his second start of the year for the Dodgers as they wrap up their seven-game season series against hot-hitting Christian Yelich and the Brewers. All-Star shortstop Francisco Lindor is expected to play again after making his season debut for Cleveland in the second game of Saturday’s doubleheader.

And so, the Toronto Maple Leafs are the country's last hope to win the Stanley Cup this season. Canada hasn't made the Cup final since 2011 when the Vancouver Canucks memorably lost to the Boston Bruins. For one, other fans want their own team to bring the Cup back north of the border. For another, Leafs fans' insistence on calling their squad Canada's team wouldn't sit so well with Canada's six other teams. But let's not get ahead of ourselves: we've all seen what happens when the Leafs take a lead against the Bruins.
