Cancer foundations in Saskatchewan launch fundraiser to save the 'Breast Screening Bus'

WATCH ABOVE: Local cancer foundations are asking for the public's help. Their 20-year-old vehicle that allows health care workers to provide mammograms has broken down. And they say this tool is a necessity for Saskatchewan women. Kabi Moulitharan has more.

The Cancer Foundation of Saskatchewan and the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency are launching a fundraiser to raise money for a new Breast Screening Bus, as the current one has broken down and can no longer be maintained.

“The bus has broken down for a few weeks. Parts are difficult to get. Supply chain issues make it even harder,” Deb Bulych, interim president and CEO of Saskatchewan Cancer Agency explained.

For twenty years, the vehicle has been providing mammogram screenings for residents in rural and remote communities of the province who may not have the means to travel down to Regina or Saskatoon.

According to the organizations, about 8,000 mammograms are conducted from the vehicle each year.

They hope to raise $2 million within the next two years.

“The time is now. We need to do this for our mothers, our sisters, our daughters and for ourselves,” Cancer Foundation of Saskatchewan’s CEO Nora Yeates said in a press conference Monday morning.

“This bus ensures that women in this province have equal access to screening,” she added. “That means hope for early detection, and happy outcomes for all of us,” Bulych told Global News.

Kelly Rea is a cervical cancer survivor. Although she never experienced breast cancer, she says she relies on this service given her heath history.

“The mobile screening bus makes it a lot easier for me because I live so far away – in the middle of nowhere basically – to get the screening program done,” she explained.

Rea is pleading to residents to think about donating.

“Breast cancer does not discriminate. It doesn’t care if you’re male or female. Old or young. (No matter your) race or social status, we all need to care about this program because someday it might be someone that you love,” she said.

Seats for physicians move back to New Brunswick medical school

Ten medical seats are returning to New Brunswick.

The province has been paying for those seats to exist at Memorial University in St. John’s, NL since 2000. Instead, in the fall of 2023, those seats will be placed with Dalhousie Medicine New Brunswick.

Trevor Holder, the minister of post-secondary education, training and labour in the province, said it is about retaining doctors who have seats through funding in New Brunswick.

“This will go a long way in terms of retention,” he said on Monday. “It’s roughly around 40 per cent retention if the student is trained outside the province. That’s 60-plus per cent when it happens here in the province. Plus we have a world-class school with a very unique model.”

Dalhousie Medicine New Brunswick was created in 2008 and has traditionally accepted 30 medical students, which now increases to 40.

The province said there will be funding provided for 70 medical student seats, 64 in New Brunswick, and six in Quebec.

For Dr. Jennifer Hall, associate dean of Dalhousie Medicine New Brunswick, this will allow people who may be from New Brunswick and study medicine to so do at home.

“Certainly we’ve had an abundance of New Brunswickers applying for the position at DMNB and we’re not able to provide a seat at this point in time for every New Brunswicker who meets our criteria … for admissions,” she said.

Hall said the school is excited about the opportunity.

For Kiera Dolan, studying medicine in her home province is the right move. She said not only does the DMNB provide small class sizes, it provides critical opportunities to connect with the province and its people.

In fact, students spend two years in classes before attending two final years with a clerkship in Fredericton, Miramichi, Moncton, Waterville or Saint John.

“Seeing that there are students that want to study here and stay here, to work later on, I think it’s beneficial and I think it’s motivating to want to stay here,” she said on Monday.

There were no additional seats announced on Monday, despite an ongoing human resource crisis in New Brunswick health care, but Holder said it has allowed the government to save on the costs to train doctors elsewhere.

“We’re in some really good negotiations right now,” Holder said on Monday. “I’ll have more to say on that when we can but I can tell you that it is our intention to do more than we’re doing now.”

Halifax convenience store owners decry ‘unfair’ proposed bylaw to limit hours

A woman living just off Dalhousie University’s campus says she’s growing tired of the lack of law enforcement during street parties in her area.

The owners of two convenience stores on the Halifax peninsula are fighting a proposed bylaw that could force them to close early.

Triple A and Jubilee Junction are both located on Jubilee Road on the corner of Preston Street, a short walk from Dalhousie University and the University of King’s College. The stores are open until the early morning hours, serving pizza and selling other typical convenience store wares.

The proposed bylaw, which passed first reading by Halifax regional council last week, would make it so stores like theirs in residential neighbourhoods could only operate between 7 a.m. and 11 p.m.

During a council meeting Thursday, Waye Mason, who represents Halifax South Downtown, said the stores being open late “can be quite disruptive to the community, especially if they’re serving pizza and have a lot of folks coming from downtown congregating, eating said pizza.”

During an interview Monday, Mason said the bylaw was intended to address a “loophole” in the peninsula’s land-use bylaw, which allows residential convenience stores to serve hot food.

He said some of the activity from what’s known as Pizza Corner in the city’s downtown has “migrated” into the middle of residential neighbourhoods.

Since the stores don’t have much seating, some people end up leaning against houses, sitting on lawns and hanging out in the street.

“Especially near the university, that can become a bit of an issue when you have very loud crowds congregating at three o’clock in the morning,” he said.

Mason said police have had to be called multiple times to disperse crowds.

Area councillor Waye Mason says the stores have become a place for students to congregate in a residential neighbourhood, causing disruptions to the community.

The bylaw would apply to 25 stores, five of which would have to change their hours. Triple A and Jubilee Junction are two of them. Mason said he has asked city staff for the names of the others.

John Amyoony, the owner of Triple A, said he’s concerned about what impact the proposed bylaw would have on his family-owned business, as about half their sales come after 11 p.m.

He said Triple A serves more than just pizza, and it’s important that it remains open late to serve the needs of the community.

“Some people go to work late,” he said. “We have hospitals, we have nurses, we have doctors, we have people working security … they stop by the store.”

Amyoony also said the store – which is open until 1 a.m. on weeknights and until 3 a.m. on weekends – provides a safe spot to go for people walking in the area late at night.

“The girls, they tell me they’re safe walking a small distance to be here at the store instead of walking far, and feel more secure here,” he said.

Triple A has been in operation since 1977 and the owner is concerned about what the bylaw could mean for the store's future.

Triple A has been around since 1977 and he’s concerned about its future if the bylaw passes second reading.

“After 45 years, I cannot see myself lose what I established,” he said. “I’m not a number, I’m not a company, I’m a family business.”

Michael Habib, owner of Jubilee Junction across the street, said “the bulk” of their business comes after 11 p.m.

“You don’t do business when the big guys are open,” he said, referring to larger chain stores.

“We’re a convenience store, and we’re supposed to be here to serve the people as conveniently as we’re able to, and limitations (are) not so convenient.”

Running a business is hard enough, he said – especially after two years of COVID-19 and, most recently, post-tropical storm Fiona – without having to deal with the prospect of lost business.

But the new bylaw is about more than what will happen to his business, said Habib.

“Our freedom is being taken away from us,” he said. “If this passes, what else are they going to pass?”

Jubilee Junction is open until 1 a.m. most nights and until 2 a.m. on weekends, he said.

Jubilee Junction owner Michael Habib says the proposed bylaw is 'unfair.'

According to an HRM staff report, 25 letters were sent out to the stores that would be impacted by the bylaw, but nobody responded. The report also said the city received two public responses through the city’s website supporting the bylaw.

Habib said he never received the letter and was otherwise not consulted.

“Even criminals have rights in order to defend themselves.… If I wasn’t consulted, how can I defend myself?” he said.

“With the slash of a pen, you destroy somebody’s life? It’s very unfair.”

Both Jubilee Junction and Triple A have petitions at their stores, which have racked up hundreds of signatures.

“I have a petition in my store with a few hundred lines on it, which is a lot more than the 25 letters that were sent out, and the responses that they got online,” said Habib.

Amyoony said Triple A did receive a letter from the city but Fiona hit soon afterward, which pulled his attention elsewhere.

He only found out about the motion passing first reading after a customer told him last week, he said.

Since then, he’s received a lot of support from the public, he said.

“Every single customer coming in – students and adults – they said, ‘No way,’” Amyoony said.

Mason said the businesses were sent letters, but said they might not have opened them.

He said he’s asked for the second reading of the bylaw to be pushed back, and is looking into arranging meetings with the affected business owners to see if they can come up with a better solution.

“But if the business can only go ahead if it’s negatively impacting the other people around them, I don’t think that’s fair and I don’t think that can continue,” he said.

While only two people submitted feedback online, Mason said this is an issue he regularly hears about from constituents in the area and the bylaw has actually been in the works since last year, when a number of Dalhousie students attended a disruptive homecoming party.

Taking note of the recent Dal homecoming party last weekend, during which a number of people were arrested, Mason said these kinds of loud, rowdy events are unacceptable.

“None of this is OK. It’s not OK to disturb these neighbours, it’s not OK to have massive street parties,” he said.

Mason said there are other businesses within walking distance, outside of residential areas, where students can get pizza.

“We want them to have pizza, we want them to get a little bit of bread and tomato in their stomachs if they’ve been drinking,” he said.

“But we want them to do that at Pizza Corner, or at Xtreme Pizza on Spring Garden Road, or at one of the pizza places on Quinpool Road, where it’s a business district and that’s expected.”

Mason said he plans to meet with the stores’ owners and get more information before the bylaw’s second reading.

The second reading will likely come in November or December, he said, and if it passes, the law would come into effect about two weeks later.

Virtual court options will remain essential, 2 Ontario chief justices say

The pandemic forced the court system to quickly adopt technology it had long resisted, such as facilitating remote hearings, and as society now resumes “in person,” two Ontario chief justices say virtual options will remain essential for access to justice.

The chief justices for the Superior and Ontario courts, as well as the associate chief justice of Ontario, who is leading the Court of Appeal, made remarks Monday at the annual opening of the courts ceremony, and all reflected on modernization emerging from the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Superior Court of Justice this year released guidelines for how to decide, going forward, whether a matter should be heard in person or virtually.

A return to in-person hearings, especially for complex cases, is an integral part of the justice system, said Superior Court Chief Justice Geoffrey Morawetz.

“Having said that, we also know that the availability of virtual hearings has been transformational for the courts. When deployed for the right types of proceedings, virtual hearings open our court to greater flexibility and accessibility,” he said in his remarks.

“There is no going back: virtual hearings have become a permanent fixture for court proceedings.”

Ontario Court Chief Justice Lise Maisonneuve outlined a “post-pandemic vision” and said the court is striving to make the most of the pandemic challenges that have proven to be opportunities, such as the use of technology for remote appearances.

“A hybrid model of justice that can accommodate virtual, in-person and dual proceedings, with the ability to seamlessly transition from video to in person, across all regions, is essential,” she said in her remarks.

Technology is helping to address a case backlog, Maisonneuve said, but “there is a vital need for more.”

“More importantly, we need additional staffing in our courts,” she said, addressing her next comments to Attorney General Doug Downey.

“We look forward to continuing our dialogue about the needs in the system. I know that you are committed to ensuring that the staffing model is appropriate and reflective of a modern justice system.”

From the Appeal Court, Associate Chief Justice Michal Fairburn issued a more lukewarm endorsement of virtual appearances, though that court doesn’t deal with as many brief appearances as the lower courts, instead often handling long and complex legal arguments.

“While we now encourage parties to attend in-person, we have, and plan to continue, for at least the immediate future, providing parties with the flexibility to attend remotely if required,” she said.

The Appeal Court recently launched the first phase of a new, digital case-management system that replaces a 30-year-old database, Fairburn said. The third phase, expected in 2023, will provide a new public portal for improved electronic filing, fee payment and document access, she said.

Over the next year the public should also see from the Appeal Court a new decision database with better search capacity, improved courtroom technology and a newly renovated, fully accessible courtroom, Fairburn said.

“Public participation and engagement with the justice system, as well as understanding of the justice system, is an essential element of safeguarding the legitimacy of the rule of law,” she said. “We must continue to evolve with this in mind.”

Kelowna, B.C. purse snatcher who targeted elderly women apprehended: RCMP

An accused purse snatcher who targeted three elderly Kelowna, B.C., women in succession had his crime spree cut short, RCMP said.

“This individual waited to prey on some of our community’s senior members while they were alone, going about their daily lives,” Const. Mike Della-Paolera said in a press release.

The first attack was Sept. 29, when a 76-year-old woman reported her purse had been stolen from her shopping cart while unloading groceries in the parking lot in the 1900 block of Kane Road.

RCMP said surveillance video was available and it showed the man allegedly responsible for the theft.

Then on Oct. 1, Mounties received a call from an 83-year-old woman reporting her purse had been stolen as she was walking home from the grocery store along Drysdale Boulevard.

“An unknown male grabbed her purse which was sitting on top of her grocery bag and ran away,” RCMP said.

On Oct. 2,  Kelowna RCMP said they received a call from a 67-year-old woman reporting she had her purse stolen in the 2200 block of Baron Road while loading groceries into her vehicle.

“An unknown man walked up, grabbed her purse, and ran away. The victim attempted to chase the man but he managed to elude her,” RCMP said.

All three victims described the alleged thief as a man, in his 20s who was thin, medium height, and wearing a reddish sweater, and used a grey pickup truck to flee the scene.

Using the description, Mounties identified a 27-year-old male Kelowna resident whom police believe is responsible for all three offences.

Const. Mike Della-Paolera said Mounties tracked him down quickly, and he has been arrested and is facing several charges including theft under $5,000 and possession of stolen property.

Toronto man sentenced for murdering 66-year-old woman at apartment building

Warning: This story contains graphic content that some readers may find disturbing.

Margaret Cameron’s two sons never attended Toronto’s Superior Courthouse for the trial of the man accused of murdering their mother in 2019, but on Monday, they both had harsh words for Karl Hoyes, 51, as he was sent away to start serving a life sentence with no chance of parole for 25 years.

“I hope you spend the rest of your life staring at the ceiling being haunted by what you have done. You have taken away a mother, a sister, aunt and grandma from this earth but you can never take her from our hearts. Where you are going, you will never be able to put your hands on another woman again,” Crown prosecutor Rob Kenny said, reading the victim impact statement written by Cameron’s son Gabriel.

Karl Hoyes was a drifter who frequented the Weston and Lawrence Area and who was seen on surveillance video prior to the murder, at a bar just up the street from Cameron’s apartment building, on the afternoon of Dec. 20, 2019.

Margaret Cameron was also there, and at one point, the two appeared to be talking to one another, but Hoyes leaves. Hoyes is later seen returning to the bar and when Cameron gets up a few minutes later, he is seen following her down Weston Road to her building, and onto the elevator with Cameron and another man, ignoring her.

After the other man gets off, and as the elevator approaches the 23rd floor where Cameron lived with her adult son, silent video shown to the jury captures Hoyes smoking a cigarette and talking to Cameron before he unzips his coveralls and approaches her with his penis in his hand. As she tries to defend herself from his advances, he begins to push her, then punch her, before kicking her to the ground, and sexually assaulting her.

Assistant Crown attorney Michael Coristine told the jury in his closing address that Hoyes “pressed one or more elevator buttons approximately 12 times to keep the elevator moving and occupied during the attack” before eventually getting off at the 25th floor and continuing the sex assault which lasted 18 minutes in total.

Hoyes ran off only after another resident interrupted the assault. A bloody picture of Margaret Cameron’s badly beaten body was shown to the jury. She had suffered bleeding of the brain, a fractured throat, bruising of the front neck with underlying muscle hemorrhages, a fractured nasal bone, a bruised lung, multiple fractured ribs, and bruising and hemorrhaging of the eyes and forehead. She was rushed to hospital without vital signs and was later pronounced dead.

Hoyes, who was arrested in a downtown Toronto homeless shelter about six hours after the attack, was still wearing the same coveralls he was seen wearing in the surveillance video from Cameron’s apartment building, and had Cameron’s DNA on his left hand and on the back of his right sleeve cuff.

The jury took less than 30 minutes to reach a verdict of first-degree murder, determined because he committed the murder while forcibly confining Cameron into an elevator and during the course of a sexual assault.

“It was probably one of the most gruesome murders I had seen during my eight years in homicide,” Det. Sgt. Rob North told Global News about the murder investigation, adding it’s likely why Margaret Cameron’s sons avoided coming to court.

The jury was also told it was never clear how well Ms. Cameron and Mr. Hoyes knew one another, something police were unable to establish.

Prior to sentencing Hoyes to the mandatory life in prison with no chance of parole for 25 years, Madam Justice Jane E. Kelly asked if the 51-year-old wanted to say anything. Hoyes responded, “no.”

Hoyes was also given a weapons prohibition for life, ordered to submit his DNA to a databank, and prohibited from having any contact with Cameron’s two sons. Kelly called Hoyes murder “a horrific crime that he committed in our city.”

Gabriel Cameron had these parting words for his mother’s killer who he called “evil.”

“My heart is broken and we lost our mother to a heartless cold murderer with no care for anyone’s well being,” Cameron said.

Conservatives push to quash dental care bill as Parliament debates 2nd reading

Health Minister Jean-Yves Duclos provided details Tuesday about the government’s new temporary dental benefit for parents of children under age 12. Duclos said the benefit would be in place while the government works on developing a “comprehensive” national dental plan.

Federal Conservatives say the Liberal dental-care and rental-housing relief legislation will only add to inflation without providing relief from the rising cost of living.

MPs today are debating the government’s legislation to create an annual $650 dental benefit for low- and middle-income families for every child under the age of 12.

The bill also gives low-income renters a one-time payment of $500.

The Conservatives are pushing an amendment to quash the bill entirely.

That is very unlikely to happen as the NDP and Liberals will both vote in favour of passing the bill.

Both initiatives were pushed by the NDP in exchange for its agreement to support the government on key votes until 2025.

Justin Trudeau bungee jumps in celebration of son's birthday

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau took a big leap of faith this weekend — but it had nothing to do with politics or policy.

Instead, Trudeau threw caution to the wind Sunday and launched himself off Canada’s tallest bungee jumping platform.

Looking like a stereotypical Canadian, the prime minister wore a red lumberjack jacket, jeans and boots as he dove off of the 60-metre tall bungee platform at Great Canadian Bungee in Chelsea, Que.

Video posted to social media by Great Canadian Bungee shows Trudeau psyching himself up before he crossed his arms in front of his chest and took the jump, diving head-first into the lagoon below.

You can hear Trudeau yelling out as he takes the plunge, before his head briefly splashes down into the water.

The prime minister’s jump was a last-minute decision. The government explains that he was there to support his two eldest children, Xavier, 14, and Ella-Grace, 13, in their own jumps and was persuaded to take the plunge himself.

“You never know who you will encounter on the bungee tower at Great Canadian Bungee! Canadian Prime Minister @justinpjtrudeau came to jump this morning with his son Xavier and daughter Ella-Grace,” the company said in an Instagram post.

“Props to them on some fantastic jumps and even some water dips!”

The family dive was done to celebrate Xavier’s birthday. Both Trudeau and his son requested the “water dip” experience.

The Prime Minister’s Office confirmed the outing to Global News.

“Yes, ahead of his son’s birthday, the Prime Minister took his kids out for an activity in the National Capital Region on Sunday,” a spokesperson said.

COVID-19 changed young people's personalities for the worse, study suggests

When the COVID-19 pandemic began, it changed everything. Work moved from the office to the home, socializing with friends meant hopping on a Zoom call, and even going outside for groceries could put your health at risk.

Now, a new study is suggesting that the pandemic also changed our personalities.

The face reveal of Minecraft YouTuber Dream broke the internet — let us explain

The study, published in PLOS One, measured changes in the Big Five traits, a common tool used by researchers to analyze personality. The traits are neuroticism, extroversion, openness, agreeableness and conscientiousness. Past research indicates that as people mature into adulthood, they become less extroverted, neurotic and open but become more agreeable and conscientious.

The pandemic presented researchers with the opportunity to study how collective stress can impact a person’s personality. They analyzed survey results from over 7,100 U.S. adults aged 18 to 109 taken during 2020, 2021 and 2022, and compared them to years before the pandemic.

Canada has dropped COVID-19 travel restrictions, mask mandates

During 2020, analysis of the surveys found that peoples’ personalities were relatively consistent, but researchers found significant changes during the 2021-2022 period.

Adults aged 18 to 64 became less extroverted, agreeable and conscientious in 2021 and 2022, and adults under 30 in particular become more neurotic during that period. This degree of change, the researchers said, is roughly equivalent to a decade’s worth of personality changes.

“Becoming more mature is declining in neuroticism and increasing in agreeableness and conscientiousness, and we see the opposite for younger adults in the second year of the pandemic,” said Angelina Sutin, the lead author of the study and a Florida State University professor, in an interview.

These personality shifts have researchers worried because they may have adverse effects on the personal lives and mental health of young adults. Conscientiousness is important for forming good relationships and working well with others is a major factor in succeeding in the workplace and at school. Sutin says that neuroticism “is a very consistent predictor of mental health outcomes like depression and anxiety.”

Given that young adults are becoming less conscientious and more neurotic, these results suggest that they may struggle more in academic and work settings and may face worse mental health outcomes — which has already been observed in previous studies.

Two years into pandemic, effects of COVID-19 on youth mental health a growing concern

For adults over the age of 65, no significant personality changes were found during the pandemic. This may be because older adults have a more concrete sense of their identities, which are less susceptible to change in the face of adverse circumstances.

Personality is less stable in young adults,” Sutin told CNN. “But then at the same time, the pandemic disrupted what young adults are supposed to be doing. They’re supposed to be in school or starting their careers or transitioning into careers. They’re supposed to be going out and forming relationships.”

As to why adult personalities were relatively unchanged in 2020, when the COVID-19 pandemic began, Sutin posited that “early on in the pandemic, there was this emphasis on coming together and working together and supporting each other.”

“That’s something that kind of fell apart in the second year,” she said.

One question left on researchers’ minds is whether adults will revert back to their pre-pandemic personalities after the impacts of COVID-19 are over.

“We captured these traits at one moment in time, so we don’t know whether these are lasting changes or whether they’re temporary,” Sutin said.

There is also the possibility that these personality changes were not a consequence of the pandemic at all — and that something different caused peoples’ personalities to change during 2021 and 2022. What is certain, though, is that we will still be grappling with the social impacts of the pandemic for years to come, whether it affected our psyches or not.
