A horrifying hit and run in Ontario is being investigated as an act of terrorism. Four members of the same family were killed in London when a man slammed into them with his truck while they were standing on a sidewalk. The family members were Muslim and police say the attack was targeted. A 9 year old boy was the only survivor and is recovering in hospital. Mayor Nenshi tweeted “Join me in grief and anger. Check-in on your Muslim friends and neighbours. That’s a kindness. But ask yourselves, what else can I do? What’s my role in creating a truly anti-racist society? What can I do today?”

 

 

The National Council of Canadian Muslims is condemning the heartbreaking attack and calling for all to stand up against the rising Islamophobic Violence across Canada.

Katie Thurston’s season of The Bachelorette kicked off last night! For those of you who don’t totally follow Bachelor Nation, Katie is the one who showed up with a…toy…to her first night on Matt James’ season back in January. She became known for being down to earth, super open about allllll the things and for standing up to bullies. She got to meet 30 guys last night and the stand outs, not necessarily for good reasons, include a guy who dressed as a cat, a zipper salesman, a SKIN salesman who showed up in an RV and a man named QAURTNEY. The new season has a very different and fresh feeling to it as Kaitlyn Bristowe and Tayshia Adams have taken over hosting duties! LOVING it.
