It is going to be HOT again today, cooling for a couple of days and then back into the 30’s for a while. Lots of people are heading out to the river to cool down, but Calgary rescue crews are asking people to stay safe on the water. They had to rescue a family last week after their raft flipped over and two more people had to be rescued yesterday when their raft hit the reconciliation bridge and flipped, leaving them clinging onto the bridge.

Disney made some pretty cool announcements yesterday. They revealed the actress who will play Snow White in the live remake of the first ever full length animated movie ever that was originally made way back in 1937. Rachel Zegler, who is fairly new to the movie industry and has only appeared in one movie so far- the upcoming West Side Story movie, will play the title role. Disney also confirmed they’re working on a new Lilo and Stitch, a prequel to the Lion King and a live remake of Pinocchio starring Tom Hanks.
