Where do we begin with the 2019 federal election? Justin Trudeau said the next election will be a fight against polarization. He also said he'd be running again next fall, right after a Liberal brunch with Antoni Porowski from Queer Eye. For the Conservatives, internal caucus squabbles will soon be hashed out at the party convention in Halifax. Their leader claims he can handle being offended:

Pastor claims he “did not have sexual relations” with woman whose baby has a 99.999996 per cent chance of being fathered by him.

The father of four, whose wife is currently pregnant with twins, now has the opposite of the sort of attention he was angling for:

Drake has flaked on yet another tour date. “Due to circumstances beyond our control” is all Live Nation has to say about why the first of three Aubrey and the Three Migos shows at the Scotiabank Arena—already having been rescheduled once—was postponed on the morning of the concert. That leaves an empty stage for Kanye West to storm, given how Drake called him a flop in Chicago.
