Disney is planning on closing down almost all of its retail stores in Canada by next month.
The iconic chain announced in March that it planned to close 60 locations across North America this year, but had no specific comment on its Canadian locations, which at the time numbered 18.
"While consumer behaviour has shifted toward online shopping, the global pandemic has changed what consumers expect from a retailer," the company's statement at the time said. "Disney will remain flexible in its approach and continue to evolve its retail strategy to best meet the needs of consumers when and where they want."
Since then, two stores in B.C. and one in Ontario have closed. It now appears as though all the remaining stores are slated to close down within weeks.

I'm sorry if this has been asked before, but how many installments to this story are you planning?
In other news, I'm super psyched for the next update. May you forever elude writer's block!
As of now the plan is for it to all just be one epic book! Though it is subject to change based on how long this all ends up being.

The NDP was the only party with a formal announcement on Saturday.
The party's leader, Gary Burrill, said the NDP would eliminate street checks in all forms, including the exception for suspicious activity, if the party forms government.
Burrill made the announcement during an event with Colter Simmonds, the party's candidate in the district of Preston, and community activist Quentrel Provo.
Both Simmonds and Provo noted that despite a ban on street checks announced by the provincial government in April 2019, each has been stopped multiple times since then by the police.
Simmonds said keeping the exception to stop people on the premise of suspicious activity is a loophole that continues to affect Black Nova Scotians. A 2019 report showed Black people in Halifax are six times as likely as white people to be street checked by police.
"I think it basically says it's lip service and the community has been getting lip service on a lot of other issues, as well, for far too long," said Simmonds.
Along with the ban on all forms of street checks, Burrill said his party is committed to enacting all the recommendations in the 2019 report by University of Toronto criminologist Scot Wortley, extending them to the entire province and providing regular updates to the legislature.

“Adding a new mixer/interface to the home studio arsenal was the hard part. Now for the easy part, getting super duper funkadelic 24/7”.
Here’s the first groove I whipped up since I moved to North Carolina from Florida. Gigantic “Thank you” to soundrooms for covering the range of so many dope “Stu’s” to build from.

ShotSpotter has altered data at the request of police to help them in a false conviction.
Not only is the technology faulty at what it claims to do, not only is its deployment racist, not only does it fail to make the public safer, but company ShotSpotter by working for the police is continuing the U.S. legacy of false convictions of Black people. Security tech won’t make us safer, there’ll cover for lying pigs.

Elected Republican officials in a conservative Michigan county who gave themselves bonuses totalling $65,000 with federal Covid-19 relief funds said they would return the money – following days of criticism.
The Shiawassee county commissioners acted after a prosecutor said the payments were illegal, the Argus-Press reported.
The Michigan state constitution bars additional compensation for elected officials “after services had already been rendered”, prosecutor Scott Koerner said.
The commissioners voted on 15 July to award themselves $65,000 as part of a plan to give $557,000 to 250 county employees as “hazard pay” for dealing with the coronavirus pandemic.
The smallest amounts for recipients were $1,000 to $2,000. But the chairman of the county board, Jeremy Root, got $25,000. Two commissioners received $10,000 each, while four received $5,000 each.

They literally work every day with very ill cancer-stricken kids who can't get the vaccine.
This makes 100% sense.
