I like that – “Elizabeth May schooling Pierre Poilievre and Justin Trudeau”.  Elizabeth, you’ve got your job cut out for you. Good luck!

Good evening. Here’s why Green Party leader Elizabeth May says a former MP should be investigated for foreign interference. Also, a Toronto judge found a man not criminally responsible for the first-degree murder of a nursing student on a TTC bus.

Foreign interference

Elizabeth May no longer has concerns about her fellow MPs after reading top-secret report

A “few” MPs are explicitly named as compromised by foreign interference in a bombshell top-secret report, but none at a level that would suggest they are being outright disloyal to Canada, Green Party Leader Elizabeth May said today. The Green leader urged other party leaders to get clearance to access the documents saying if they did, everyone could have a “grown-up” conversation about what needs to happen next. This is what else May said about the report.

·         Susan Delacourt’s take: Elizabeth May just schooled Pierre Poilievre and Justin Trudeau on the right way to handle foreign interference. Read more from Delacourt here.

A man who fatally set fire to a nursing student on TTC bus was found not criminally responsible

Today, a judge found Tenzin Norbu not criminally responsible for the murder of 28-year-old nursing student Nyima Dolma. Norbu set Dolma on fire on a bus at Kipling Station on June 17, 2022. She died 18 days later. Both the Crown and the defence agreed that Norbu should be deemed not criminally responsible due to the psychosis caused by his schizophrenia. Here’s what the judge said in her ruling.

One man is dead after a fiery crash on the Gardiner

A man in his 50s has died after three dump trucks were involved in a collision on the Gardiner Expressway and Spadina Avenue this afternoon. The crash led to chaos at rush hour, with the Gardiner blocked off to westbound traffic with closures extending to the Jarvis Street ramp, York Street ramp and southbound traffic along the Don Valley Parkway diverted at the Bayview/Bloor Street exit. This is the latest on the collision.

A group fighting the Ontario Place spa was dealt a legal blow

A panel of the Ontario Divisional Court ruled today that a request for a government environmental assessment of Ontario Place’s West Island “cannot succeed.” The group Ontario Place for All made the request in late 2023 regarding the development of a spa on the West Island, but the Ford government introduced legislation one week later in an effort to quash the review. Here’s how they responded and what happens next.

Olivia Chow wants to bring downtown back to life — here’s how

Toronto’s mayor is on a mission to keep the city’s financial district alive. Since the fall, the mayor has been meeting with the CEOs of some of Canada’s largest banks — CIBC, TD, RBC and BMO — to discuss, among other issues, how to get Torontonians back in the office at least four days a week, if not five — and they’re calling on her to set the example. Here’s more on how remote work has impacted the downtown core.

·         Go deeper: Complicating Chow’s plan to revitalize the downtown core is the city’s congestion crisis, which is the worst in the continent, according to the Toronto Region Board of Trade, pushing workers away from downtown.
