House in Brampton rents multiple rooms, people living in cars in driveway

It can be difficult for tenants who do not have unlimited funds at their disposal.

Heck, it’s hard even if you make a decent salary.

So as more people struggle to keep a roof over their heads, there are those who are so desperate they will live anywhere.

Take this nightmare in Brampton, where the landlord is believed to be renting out multiple rooms and even charging people to live in a car in the driveway, Denette Wilford reported.

We’re not sure what’s sadder: this latest horror show or the fact that people don’t bat an eye at these types of rentals.

WARMINGTON: Anthem singer dresses in pro-Palestinian attire at NHL All-Star Game

The NHL had to do some explaining after American national anthem singer Kiana Lede used the All-Star Game in Toronto last weekend to show her support for the Palestinians.

The pop star, who has a history of anti-Israel rants, wore pro-Palestinian colors while walking the red carpet and sitting in a corporate suite at Scotiabank Arena, Joe Warmington reported.

There has been nothing subtle about her position and who is on her side in Israel’s war against Hamas. It’s unfortunate that the NHL didn’t investigate her more before giving her such a large platform in what should be an apolitical sporting event.

NHLer denies cheating on ex-girlfriend Tate McRae after rumor surfaced at All-Star Game

Columbus Blue Jackets center Cole Sillinger was forced to play defense after rumors surfaced that he cheated on his ex-girlfriend Tate McRae.

An Instagram post features photos of the former couple who criticized the NHL player for dating out of his league, how his infidelity boosted the singer’s career and that McRae, who headlined the second midterm performance at the All-Star Game NHL, was invited to the event ahead, reported Dan Bilicki.

However, Sillinger responded: “It’s all fake, man.”

Either way, it must have been tough watching McRae be a big part of the All-Star weekend festivities in Toronto, where she famously served as Avalanche star Nathan MacKinnon’s team captain during the NBA draft. Thursday and Saturday’s game.

EDITORIAL: $200 billion spent on ‘climate action’: for what?

If you recall, Environment Minister Steven Guilbeault announced last year that the Trudeau government has committed “more than $200 billion” to “more than 100 measures to support climate action.”

If you’re wondering how that goes, you’ll have to wait in line because no concrete answer has been given, according to a recent editorial.

When Conservative MP Dan Mazier asked about the federal carbon tax, Guilbeault responded with one of his no-answer answers: “The government does not measure the annual amount of emissions that are directly reduced by the federal carbon price.”

So no one knows how the government’s more than 100 other measures “to support climate action” are working. It’s a lot to not know when the government is spending $200 billion of our money on it.

Justin Bieber’s NHL All-Star Look Has the Internet in Hysterics: ‘Dressed Like a Super Mario Mushroom’

Lifelong Toronto Maple Leafs fan Justin Bieber was able to make a childhood dream come true when he took to the ice as a celebrity captain in the NHL All-Star Game.

But it was a nightmare for everyone present when she showed up in an oversized red and pink polka dot furry coat that looked like something straight out of the Sesame Street line.

Others compared it to a mushroom from Super Mario, Mark Daniell reported, and that wasn’t bad either.

But all the fashion backlash couldn’t overshadow the fact that for a brief moment he got to live out his childhood dream when he hit the ice with the NHL’s biggest stars for his pregame skate, many of whom posed happily for photos with the superstar.

Hey, at least I was warm.
