Bruce McArthur pleaded guilty to eight counts of first-degree murder. Selim Esen, Andrew Kinsman, Majeed Kayhan, Dean Lisowick, Soroush Mahmudi, Skandaraj Navaratnam, Abdulbasir Faizi and Kirushna Kanagaratna were all killed by the landscaper, now officially by his own admission:

Meng Wanzhou is now the subject of a formal extradition request. The U.S. department of justice announced its 13 criminal charges against Huawei and its CFO, Wanzhou, who has been laying low in Vancouver. Amidst it all, Rogers hasn’t changed anything about Huawei’s sponsorship of hockey.

Nonetheless, only about 30 per cent of Torontonians want to see the land become a casino:

“Informer” helps Snow fall back upwards again. The reggae rapper from Ajax remade his 1993 hit last year with a video filmed in Bucharest. He’s got another shot via Puerto Rican star Daddy Yankee, who has reimagined “Informer” in a new single, “Con Calma.” And so, Darrin “Snow” O’Brien can count on paying his heating bills this winter:

USMCA isn’t official enough to stop CBS Super Bowl spots from beaming across the border. The updated free trade agreement includes a reversal of a recent CRTC decision that prevented Canadian commercials from overriding the U.S. cable feed.
