Numerous other Stars players battled back and rib injuries throughout the postseason and were game-time decisions each night, according to Nill. Besides Hakanpää, no other players will undergo surgery this offseason.

A motion that paves the way for an Ontario law allowing people access to information about a partner’s past charges or criminal convictions has been unanimously approved by all parties. In 2014, the British government implemented Clare’s Law, years after a young woman was killed by her partner who had a long history of abuse of which she was not aware. Several provinces now have their own versions, including Saskatchewan — the first in Canada — and Alberta. During the COVID-19 pandemic, there was a rise in intimate partner violence, and an inquest into the deaths of three women in Eastern Ontario — all former partners of the same man — urged the provincial government to implement a Clare’s Law. Such information is shared confidentially, not in writing, and cannot be publicly divulged.

Canada needs some kind of public broadcaster, but the CBC isn’t currently doing a good job filling that role, a panel of experts agreed on Wednesday. With competition from streaming services, a quickly-changing broadcast and news landscape, and diminished trust in the public broadcaster, the future of the CBC is as murky as ever. The Conservative leader hasn’t backed down from the promise since winning the leadership, but he has narrowed down his targets to the English-language side of the public broadcaster. Radio-Canada’s French services, Poilievre has hinted, would remain largely untouched. Some experts think it would be extremely complicated to slash one side of the public broadcaster and not the other, though.

She has proposed a six per cent property tax raise for homeowners with a combined income of more than $80,000, and three per cent for households earning less than that threshold.

The group posted a note to its website saying it deleted all the data it stole from governments, cities, and police services. Cybersecurity experts warn that the Nova Scotia government should remain on guard, despite Clop’s apparent act of goodwill toward public institutions. Officials said the hack was discovered last week and that the data stolen included social insurance numbers, addresses and banking information. As for Clop’s claim that it erased Nova Scotia’s data, Abrams said some groups have made similar claims and then sold the information, or used it for future extortion. “It is safer to assume that any stolen data is at risk for abuse by the cybercrime operation or other threat actors,” Abrams said in an email.

What is La Macaza Institution, the facility he was quietly moved to? Here’s what we know about Paul Bernardo, what the difference is between a medium- and a maximum-security prison, and how federal corrections determines which level offenders should be placed in.

The offender’s security level is based on how they’ll adjust to the institution, the risk of escape and public safety.
