Canada's population has topped 37 million, according to new data released this morning by Statistics Canada, and is growing faster than it ever has before. It took just two years and two months to add one million more people to the national population, which stood at 37,067,011 as of April 1.

That's the shortest period on record for an increase of such magnitude.

Justin Andrew Bokma, 42, and LeFrance Matthews, 41, were gunned down in the early morning hours of July 1, 2016 inside a second-floor after-hours club near College Street and Augusta Avenue.

Police say they believe the suspects had attended the club previously and the club’s owners knew who they were.

A litmus test for Premier-elect Ford

Here's a chance for Doug Ford to show that he can rise above "same old, sleazy backroom" party politics...

"Leaked emails show Caroline Mulroney’s former boss shared concerns over the PC party criticizing a controversial casino deal, while Wynne’s war room strategist rode the revolving door between government and lobbying for the same deal."
Mr Ford should remember, courage is courage, wherever you may find it...
To call this a minor triviality of Canadian life is to ignore one of the country’s highest-profile policy debates of the past half-decade. In 2012, centrist Liberal politician Martha Hall Findlay provoked the conversation by running for her party’s leadership on what was a mostly one-issue campaign to abolish dairy tariffs.

Toronto Police have charged Hassan Hassan, 36, of Toronto and six teenage boys after an alleged robbery and beating that left a cyclist in a coma. Police are still searching for 18-year-old Nakhari Henry-Robinson and 19-year-old Tajon James.

A 19-year-old man was biking on May 25 when he was surrounded by 15 people, some of whom assaulted him while others cheered them on. Police say the cyclist suffered a “significant” head injury and spent several days in a coma.

Two of the men at the centre of a wild police chase in downtown Toronto last month are up-and-coming rapper siblings with a large and loyal following of fans. Sharrieff Muhammad, 22, and his brother Kareemallah Muhammad, 18, were arrested along with two other men following the police pursuit in broad daylight on May 28. It's alleged that at one point someone fired into a group of pedestrians on Parliament Street near Dundas. No one was injured.

In March, Kareemallah Muhammad was charged with sexual assault and forcible confinement in relation to an alleged incident involving a 17 year-old fan. In 2017, he was also charged with drug trafficking. On May 28, the Muhammad brothers were arrested along with Shakiem Anderson, 21, of Mississauga and Harlem Baldwin, 20, of Toronto.

They're facing 97 charges in total including criminal negligence and reckless discharge of a firearm.

“When I was out of the country my Facebook page was hacked,” NDP candidate Tasleem Riaz insisted. “Honestly, honestly, I’m the person who’s spreading love and peace in the community,” she said dramatically. She said when people heard about the meme, they told her she didn’t “deserve this” because she’s done so much for the community.

When I first approached Riaz for comment Thursday, she was shuffled out the door by NDP handlers. She then subsequently claimed to other media “she was very busy” — too busy to comment as she sat schmoozing with assorted NDP staffers.

PC candidate Gila Martow first brought the meme to the media’s attention a week ago, countered that “openly Nazi messages” are not pushed on social media by mistake — a message that was “liked” by at least seven of Riaz’s friends at the time.
Note that Tasleem isn't addressing allegations that she called Canadian soldiers "war criminals." Is that a real vote-magnet in her riding?
