CAPTION: The president of the Humboldt Broncos says the GoFundMe page dedicated to crash victims’ families will close Wednesday and the money will be transferred to a new memorial fund. The campaign has raised over $12 million. (April 17, 2018) 1. SOUNDBITE: Kevin Garinger, Humboldt Broncos president PLACELINE: Saskatoon CREDIT: The Canadian Press STORYLINE: The GoFundMe page dedicated to the Humboldt Broncos, believed to be the largest of its kind in Canadian history, will remain open for two more days before being transferred to a newly created memorial fund, the team's officials announced Monday. More than 130,000 individuals and businesses from Canada and other countries have donated between $5 and $50,000 to the GoFundMe campaign, called Funds for Humboldt Broncos. The campaign was started by Humboldt resident Sylvie Kellington after the horrific bus crash earlier this month, which killed 16 players and staff. In nine days, the online campaign has raised more than $12 million. Humboldt Broncos president Kevin Garinger announced at a news conference in Saskatoon that the campaign will remain open until midnight Wednesday, at which point all funds will be transferred to the new Humboldt Broncos Memorial Fund. The $12 million raised will serve its intended purpose of paying for expenses of the victims' families, Garinger said, adding that it's too soon to give a more specific breakdown of the way the funds will be allocated. "Sylvie was hoping to raise $5,000 to maybe buy coffee and support maybe parking, and that sort of thing, to help families," he said. "It of course grew much larger than that." Garinger also said the team will continue to accept donations through another new organization, the Humboldt Strong Community Foundation, which he said will "support Humboldt Broncos players, employees, families and volunteers, as well as first responders and emergency services personnel, teams, athletes, related organizations and communities affected by the crash."

"When it comes to this use of chemical weapons, it is clear to Canada that chemical weapons were used and that they were used by the Assad regime," Freeland said.

STORYLINE: If elected premier of Ontario in the spring election, Doug Ford says his first act will be to fire the CEO of Hydro One and its board of directors, whom he blames for the rising electricity costs in the province. The decision, however, would not come cheap. Hydro One CEO Mayo Schmidt, who earned a $6.2-million salary last year, would be entitled to at least $10.7 million in severance if he were to be removed from his job by the board of directors, according to the company's annual shareholders report released on March 29.

SOUNDBITE: Finance Minister Bill Morneau PLACELINE: Toronto CREDIT: The Canadian Press STORYLINE: Alberta Premier Rachel Notley says the federal government has convinced her that ``something specific'' will be announced in the near future to try to break the impasse over the Trans Mountain pipeline. Notley made the comments after a meeting in Toronto with federal Finance Minister Bill Morneau. She says she will let Morneau discuss and outline what those specific actions will be. The future of the Trans Mountain project was jeopardized this week after the operator, Kinder Morgan, said delay tactics by the B.C. government may make the $7.4-billion expansion of the existing line financially untenable. Notley says the line, from Edmonton to Burnaby, is critical to getting more oil to the coast and fetching better prices to boost the Canadian economy.

SOUNDBITE: Jagmeet Singh, NDP leader PLACELINE: Ottawa CREDIT: The Canadian Press STORYLINE: The federal government won't negotiate an end to the Trans Mountain pipeline crisis in public, federal Finance Minister Bill Morneau said Wednesday as he prepared to sit down with Alberta Premier Rachel Notley in hopes of getting the Kinder Morgan project back on track. The federal New Democrats, meantime, proposed that the Trudeau Liberals work with the British Columbia government on a joint reference question to the Supreme Court of Canada, to fast-track resolution of jurisdictional issues arising from B.C.'s objections to the project. Morneau said Ottawa is looking at several "financial options" to ensure the Alberta-B.C. pipeline expansion gets built, including a potential federal monetary stake in the project. But any federal investment in the pipeline would first require closed-door talks with Kinder Morgan and the two provinces, Morneau said. "That will require us to talk with the project proponent," Morneau told a Toronto news conference. "That will require us to talk with the provinces, and we're not going to negotiate in public or talk about those options publicly at this stage."

For Shumlanski, the rural intersection he passes each day on the way to his home in northeastern Saskatchewan will never be the same. He was one of the first to arrive after a bus carrying the Humboldt Broncos junior hockey team collided with a semi truck about 20 kilometres north of Tisdale. The team was on its way to a playoff game in nearby Nipawin. Shumlanski's 20-year-old son, Nick, a forward who had recently joined the Broncos, was on the bus. He was miraculously able to walk away from the wreckage, grab a phone lying in the debris and call home.

Accused Admiral Breaks Silence after First Court Appearance
Vice-Admiral Mark Norman made a court appearance in Ottawa on Tuesday concerning an accusation that he leaked sensitive information about a shipbuilding project.

Norman says he's eager to deal with the criminal charge he faces and return to serving Canadians.

Norman was charged last month with breach of trust and denies any wrongdoing. He is slated to return to Ontario court May 15 to begin setting a timetable for proceedings.

“I’m anxious to get to court, get this dealt with as quickly as possible, and get back to serving the people of Canada,” he said following the appearance.

Norman, who was the military's second-in-command until suspended from duty early last year, faces up to five years in prison. The case revolves around a November 2015 decision by the newly elected Liberal government to reconsider a $700-million contract the Harper Conservatives had awarded to Quebec-based Davie Shipbuilding.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has once again blamed Russia for using a nerve agent on a former Russian spy and his daughter in England.

At a news conference with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg in Ottawa, Trudeau called the alleged Russian attack unacceptable to the international community. He says that's why Canada threw out four Russian diplomats. In return Russia expelled four Canadians.

Trudeau says Canada and its NATO allies responded “extremely strongly” to the alleged Russian attack in the U.K.

CAPTION: Canadian fitness enthusiasts are spreading the word about “plogging,” an eco-friendly trend combining jogging and picking up litter. Melanie Knight says the concept appeals to her as both a runner and marine biologist. (March 27, 2018) 1. SOUNDBITE: Melanie Knight PLACELINE: Vancouver CREDIT: The Canadian Press STORYLINE: As the spring thaw lays bare the discarded waste of winter, many Canadian fitness enthusiasts are trying to spread the word about plogging, an eco-friendly exercise mashup that combines the endorphin rush of jogging with the environmental benefits of picking up trash. Plogging is a portmanteau of jogging and the Swedish phrase ``plocka upp,'' meaning pick up, and the premise is as simple as its name suggests. Rather than racing past the rubbish strewn along their route, ploggers pick it up to be disposed of properly, and if they're feeling ambitious, try to squeeze in a few exercises in between pieces of trash as they fill up their bags. The Swedish-exported fitness craze has gained a small but zealous following in Canada as ploggers try to connect with one another by showing off their trash hauls on social media. Melanie Knight in Vancouver has taken up a 30-day challenge to collect litter for 10 minutes every day, which she has documented on Instagram with the #10minutetidy hashtag. She regularly posts selfies of her smiling brightly alongside some of the strange debris she has come across during her daily runs, including a leather belt, a children's toy, and ironically, a dustpan.

Ale experimenters in Winnipeg have recreated a beer from a fourth-century Egyptian alchemist’s recipe. One of the brewers who worked on the beer says the concoction was surprisingly good but different than modern ales. (March 15, 2018) 1. SOUNDBITE: Dr. Matt Gibbs, University of Winnipeg Department of Classics chair 2. SOUNDBITE: Tyler Birch, Barn Hammer Brewing co-owner PLACELINE: Winnipeg CREDIT: The Canadian Press STORYLINE: An idea that began when a classicist went to a brewery to sip beers and ponder the history of hops has brought to life an ancient ale. It took hours of translating, milling and baking, but ale experimenters in Winnipeg have finally sipped a beer created from a fourth-century Egyptian alchemist's recipe. "If you expect this to taste like a modern beer, you are not going to find that," said Matt Gibbs, chair of the University of Winnipeg's Department of Classics. "This beer is very, very sour. It's good. It's much better than I thought it was when we first did it, I will say that much, but it's different." Gibbs got the idea while sitting at a bar talking about old beers with a pair of brewmasters. The original recipe was found in "The Barbarian's Beverage: A History of Beer in Ancient Europe" by Max Nelson at the University of Windsor. It was chosen because Gibbs figured he could stay close to the original process and, unlike some of the other recipes, the ingredients were available and legal.

Footage Said to Describe Navy Encounter With UFO Released
A research organization that has released declassified Department of Defense footage in the past posted a new video on March 9, which they said shows US Navy footage of an unidentified flying object off the east coast of the United States in 2015.
The video was released by To The Stars Academy of Art and Science, a research organization founded in October 2017 by Luis Elizondo to conduct research into “exotic science and technologies.”
An analysis of the video, published by To The Stars, said that the unidentified object showed no obvious wings or tails. To The Stars also said that there was no exhaust plume from the object, which would be visible on conventional aircraft filmed in the manner seen in the video.
Writing in the Washington Post, Christopher Mellon, an adviser to To The Stars, criticized the lack of response to such incidents, saying “reports from different services and agencies remain largely ignored and unevaluated.”
The US Department of Defense confirmed to the New York Times the existence of a secret $22 million program to investigate UFOs running from 2007 to 2012, according to a report published by the newspaper in December 2017.
