The United Way Leeds & Grenville announced the name of their new executive director yesterday morning.

  • Scooter Hit and Run

    Scooter hit and runs are now a thing in London. Certainly not as intimidating as hardcore biker gangs, but a serious problem nonetheless.
  • Stylish Cannabis Commercial

    Marijuana will be legal in Canada come July 1st, so maybe we will see more and more commercials like this one.
  • Gruesome Broken Ankle

    Boston Celtics' Gordon Hayward broke his ankle on opening night against the Cavaliers and it looked awfully painful. Not for the faint of heart.
