Businesses praise feds for Canada Post back-to-work legislation

Written by admin on  Categories: 上海夜生活

A group representing Canadian businesses is praising the federal government for legislating postal employees back to work, saying it will help clear hefty backlogs of mail ahead of the busy holiday season.

The Canadian Federation of Independent Business said in a statement that it was pleased Ottawa listened to business owners, who described the postal strike as “an emergency for many small firms and for Canadian consumers.”

Mail service was scheduled to resume today at noon Eastern after the Senate passed legislation ordering an end to five weeks of rotating strikes by postal workers.

Royal assent was granted Monday after senators approved Bill C-89 by a vote of 53-25, with four abstentions.

The government deemed passage of the bill to be urgent due to the economic impact of continued mail disruptions during the busy Christmas holiday season.

The Canadian Union of Postal Workers issued a statement declaring it’s “exploring all options to fight the back-to-work legislation.”

Negotiations had been underway for nearly a year, but the dispute escalated more recently when CUPW members launched rotating strikes Oct. 22.

Those walkouts have led to backlogs of mail and parcel deliveries at the Crown corporation’s main sorting plants in Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal.

Dan Kelly, president of the business federation, said 71 per cent of members it surveyed supported back-to-work legislation after two-thirds of small businesses reported they had been negatively affected by the strike.

“Back to work legislation is never an easy choice, but it will help salvage the holiday season for small firms and consumers,” he said in the statement. “We’re relieved to see Canada Post back to work and hope the corporation and the union can reach a long-lasting agreement to ensure Canada Post can become a low-cost and reliable option for small business.”

‘I felt like a ragdoll, being thrown around a car’: Victim of Hwy. 401 collision

Written by admin on  Categories: 上海夜生活

Last Thursday, Brittany Castagnier was driving east on Highway 401 from Odessa to Kingston to meet a client. She drove for about two minutes and then she was suddenly hit by a transport truck from behind and ended up in a ditch.

Castagnier says she heard a loud bang and the next thing she knew, her car was resting in a ditch. The entire experience is a blur because it happened so fast. But what Castagnier does remember is that she “felt like a ragdoll, being thrown around a car.”

龙凤419论坛

The car’s airbags deployed during the crash and all Castagnier could see was her sunroof, everything else was covered. Castagnier says “I felt so claustrophobic.”

She then tried to kick the sunroof out so she could escape from her red Mazda but she was unsuccessful. “I really thought I was giving it my all,” Castagnier said.

Fortunately, at that moment another transport truck driver stopped on the shoulder of the highway, broke through her sunroof and pulled her out of her vehicle.

The transport truck that hit Castagnier’s car had also hit other vehicles in a chain reaction collision.  No one was seriously hurt.

“The luck of that was extraordinary,” says Cont. Scott Woodburn with the Napanee OPP. Castagnier is suffering from a concussion and is also being treated for whiplash.

Castagnier says she’s lucky as “things could have ended up to be a lot worse.” Castagnier’s Mazda has been written off.

Castagnier adds that she’s thankful for the truck driver who rescued her, the paramedics and the people who cared for her by giving away their jackets and blankets. She also hopes the truck driver who hit her vehicle learns his lesson and is more careful going forward.

Flurries, squalls forecast for London, surrounding area: Environment Canada

Written by admin on  Categories: 上海夜生活

A risk of snow squalls in London’s forecast throughout the day and into the evening has prompted a weather advisory from Environment Canada.

The government agency says London, Parkhill, and Eastern Middlesex County should prepare for flurries and squalls that could deliver local snowfall amounts between 10 and 15 centimetres by Wednesday morning.

龙凤419论坛

The city is already waking up to a small amount of snow and ice on area roadways, which has prompted the cancellation of school-purpose vehicles in Central and East Elgin.

Environment Canada meteorologist Rosemary Tabory tells 980 CFPL flurries are expected to get more frequent throughout the day, with a chance for squall activity in the afternoon.

“We just had a large low-pressure [system] move through southern Ontario this past evening, and in behind it, we’re getting into a strong gusty northwesterly flow. It’s generating a bit of activity off the great lakes.”

Tabory says the squalls could impact road and driving conditions, and she’s warning motorists to be careful.

“You could be driving into something that gives you near zero visibility, you could encounter snow-covered roads that might be slippery, so just be very cautious,” she said.

Temperatures will continue to hover around the freezing mark Tuesday, during the day and overnight. There’s blowing snow in the forecast for Wednesday morning too, and a small chance of flurries until Friday night.

It’ll be warmer over the weekend, with a high of 5 C on Saturday and Sunday.

Tension heightens as Russia releases ‘confessions’ of detained Ukraine sailors

Written by admin on  Categories: 上海夜生活

The Kremlin warned Tuesday that a simmering war in eastern Ukraine could boil over after Russia seized three Ukrainian ships and Kiev responded by declaring martial law in parts of the country. Russia paraded the captured seamen on television, a move that Ukraine called criminal.

龙凤419论坛

Russia and Ukraine have blamed each other for Sunday’s confrontation in the Kerch Strait, which links the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov. The clash has raised the specter of renewing a full-blown conflict in eastern Ukraine and saw Russia strongly criticized at the United Nations by the United States and its allies.

Russia seized Ukrainian ships and sailors, then blamed ‘banditry’. Here’s what you need to know

The Ukrainian parliament on Monday adopted a motion by the president to impose martial law for 30 days. That is something Ukraine avoided doing even when Russia annexed its nearby Crimean peninsula in 2014 or sent in clandestine troops and weapons to insurgents in war-torn eastern Ukraine.

On Sunday near Crimea, Russian border guards rammed into and opened fire on three Ukrainian navy vessels traveling from the Black Sea toward a Ukrainian port. The Russians seized the ships and their crews.

Ukraine considers the 24 captured men to be prisoners of war and says some have been seriously injured, while Russia says they are individuals who have violated its border.

The Kremlin reacted strongly to Ukraine’s declaration of martial law, with Dmitry Peskov, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman, telling reporters Tuesday that it might trigger a flare-up in hostilities in eastern Ukraine.

Ukrainian troops have been fighting Russian-backed separatists in eastern Ukraine since 2014, a conflict that has left over 10,000 dead, but fighting has eased since a truce in 2015.

WATCH: Relatives of captured Ukrainian soldiers in the dark about their whereabouts, condition

The martial law formally went into effect on Monday in several parts of Ukraine, including areas bordering territory now held by the separatists.

The Russian intelligence agency FSB claimed the ships had Ukrainian SBU intelligence agents onboard with a mission to mount what they called “provocation” in the Kerch Strait.

The strait is spanned by a new bridge that Russia completed this year — the only land link from the Russian mainland to the annexed peninsula of Crimea.

The SBU on Tuesday confirmed it had officers on the ships but denied any nefarious intentions, saying they were simply fulfilling counterintelligence operations for the Ukrainian navy.

The SBU also demanded that Russia stop using “psychological and physical pressure” on the Ukrainians — an apparent reference to interviews of the crewmembers that Russia released late Monday. The video broadcast by Russian state television showed three separate interviews with Ukrainian seamen, all of whom agreed with Russian claims that they violated its border.

WATCH: Tensions escalate after Russia seizes Ukraine naval ships

It was not immediately possible to ascertain if the men were talking under duress or had been subject to violence. One of them was clearly reading from a script prepared for them.

Ukraine’s foreign minister told The Associated Press on Tuesday that he has asked the president of the International Committee of the Red Cross to arrange a visit to the Ukrainian prisoners and he’s waiting for a Russian response. He said some of the seamen on the seized ships had been seriously injured in the clash with Russia.

“It’s not a political issue here, because we can have an argument about the legal status, but it’s about simply concentrating on protecting them and helping them,” Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin told the AP.

When asked about the Ukrainian seamen broadcasts on Russian TV, Klimkin said “even to put prisoners of war on television is already a crime.”

A court in Crimea on Tuesday ordered that one of the Ukrainians be kept in custody pending a trial. He could be sent to prison for six years if found guilty. Rulings for possible arrest of 11 more Ukrainian seamen are expected later in the day while the court will rule on the remaining 12 on Wednesday.

One of the captured Ukrainian sailors speaks with his lawyer in a court room in Simferopol, Crimea, Tuesday, Nov. 27, 2018. A Crimean court has ordered one of the Ukrainian seamen captured by Russia at the weekend held in custody for the next two months. The seamen and their vessels were captured by Russian border guards late on Sunday as they were about to make their way through the Kerch Strait near Crimea.

Ukraine said its vessels were heading to the Sea of Azov in line with international maritime rules, while Russia charged that they had failed to obtain permission to pass through the narrow Kerch Strait.

Putin and German Chancellor Angela Merkel spoke on the phone early Tuesday, and the Russian president expressed a “serious concern” about what the martial law in Ukraine might entail.

Meanwhile, German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said Tuesday that Berlin has “called on Russia and Ukraine to show the greatest possible restraint” and suggested that Germany, France, Russia and Ukraine could work together to resolve the tensions.

WATCH: Freeland condemns Russian seizure of Ukrainian ships

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, who was visiting Paris on Tuesday, rejected that offer, saying that he did not see “a need for any kind of mediators.” He spoke after meeting with French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian, who appeared to soften his criticism of Russia’s seizure of the ships.

Shortly after Russian border guards seized the Ukrainian ships off Crimea, France’s Foreign Ministry said “nothing justifies” Russia’s use of force.

But after long talks with Lavrov in Paris, Le Drian blamed the ship standoff on the “high level of militarization” in the region and avoided pointing the finger at Russia.

The United States and the European Union have slapped sanctions on Russian businesses, tycoons and banks for Russia’s 2014 annexation of Crimea.

Henrik Lundqvist makes 29 saves, New York Rangers defeat Ottawa Senators 4-2

Written by admin on  Categories: 上海夜生活

NEW YORK – Rangers coach David Quinn has set a new tone for his team and the priority has been to outwork opponents.

Marc Staal, Lias Andersson, Chris Kreider, and Mika Zibanejad scored, and Henrik Lundqvist made 29 saves as the New York Rangers defeated the Ottawa Senators 4-2 Monday night.

“It’s a hardworking team,” Rangers forward Kevin Hayes said. “If you are not working hard, you are not playing. That’s coach’s rules. We work hard every night and we are kind of building an identity here.”

The Rangers extended their dominance at Madison Square Garden, improving to 8-1-0 at home in their last nine games.

Mark Stone scored twice, Brady Tkachuk had two assists and Craig Anderson stopped 29 shots for Ottawa, which fell to 2-8-1 in road games this season.

“It’s tough to lose,” Stone said. “We are in the business of winning hockey games and right now, we are struggling.”

Andersson broke a 1-1 tie at 3:26 of the third period, benefiting from a fortuitous bounce. Ryan Strome’s shot deflected off the goaltender, then caromed off Andersson into the back of the net. The seventh overall selection from the 2017 NHL draft originally did not make the team when training camp ended, but has been with the Rangers since early November.

Ottawa challenged the play for goaltender interference, but the referee’s initial call stood.

“We just sabotaged ourselves,” Senators coach Guy Boucher said of his team’s performance.

Kreider finished a 2-on-1 opportunity with a slap shot that extended the Rangers lead to 3-1 at 8:18 of the third period. Filip Chytil delivered a cross-ice pass to set up the opportunity.

Kreider has notched nine goals and five assists as the Rangers built a 10-3-1 record since Oct. 30.

The Senators knotted the game 1-1 when Stone was able to find a loose puck in front of Lundqvist at 13:03 of the opening frame. The Rangers challenged for goaltender interference but the call was not overturned and New York forfeited their timeout. Tkachuk and Colin White assisted on the play.

The 21-year-old White missed the previous game with an upper-body injury but returned to action Monday.

Stone hammered a one-timer at 17:17 of the third period to pull Ottawa within one. Tkachuk and Matt Duchene assisted on the play.

Staal gave the Rangers a 1-0 lead at 10:55 of the first period, converting a one-timer in the slot. Mika Zibanejad forced a turnover in the offensive zone after the Rangers had extended pressure, and found Staal alone in the high slot. Staal snapped a streak of 94 games without a goal that dated to October 2017. Jesper Fast also assisted on the play.

“He is a calming influence on our team, in the locker room and on the ice,” Quinn said of Staal. “He works hard and wants to get better. He has defended well, I think he has eaten a lot of minutes and has played against the other team’s top players.”

Zibanejad added an empty-netter at 18:21 of the final period and has scored a goal in each of the four games he has played in against the Senators.

Lundqvist picked up career victory 440 and is five wins away from tying Terry Sawchuk for sixth place on the NHL’s all-time wins list.

“We played a hard game,” Lundqvist said. “We just have to realize what we are and what we have to do to have success. It starts with hard work and we have to pay attention to the details of the game. If we do, we can beat anybody.”

General Motors closure in Oshawa not a symptom of Trump’s trade battle: experts

Written by admin on  Categories: 上海夜生活

U.S. President Donald Trump’s tariff battles with Canada, Mexico, China and Europe have inflated the cost of steel, making it more expensive to build cars in North America, but General Motors’ decision to close factories and lay off thousands of people is more about tactics than the balance sheet, say trade observers and automotive industry experts.

龙凤419论坛

“It’s very understandable, given all the hype associated with the trade agreement, and, you might say, the troubled relationship between your prime minister and our president, that it’s some sort of reaction to the tariffs on steel and aluminum,” said Michigan business professor Marick Masters. “But I think it’s more of a strategic adjustment by General Motors to prepare itself for a future in which it’s trying to get ahead of the technology curve.”

GM Oshawa plant closing could affect nearly 15 per cent of auto industry jobs

The company is placing a substantial bet on a future dominated by three high-tech trends that have been upending the world of the internal-combustion engine: electric vehicles, mobility services like ride-hailing apps, and cars and trucks that are capable of driving themselves.

And they’re doing it at a time of relative economic health, a departure from the traditional peak-and-trough timelines that tend to predict waves of deep, widespread job cuts, said Maryann Keller, a New York-based automotive-industry consultant.

As unmistakable as the coming future is, it’s still a relatively long way off for an industry that still manages to sell more than 19 million vehicles in North America each year.

WATCH: How the Oshawa GM closure will impact jobs

“It’s unusual for a company in this kind of market to make announcements where they are essentially shedding capacity. I think that is a pretty profound statement from GM that they choose to do it at this time,” Keller said. “If they’re in a race, General Motors is running way ahead of the pack. They may run way ahead of the pack and run off a cliff, because nobody can see the future that clearly, but they have defined it and they are preparing for it.”

When news emerged late Sunday that the company was planning to shut down its flagship Canadian plant in Oshawa, Ont., putting more than 2,500 people out of work, social media set its sights on Trump’s “America First” strategy for bringing manufacturing jobs back to U.S. soil.

But that argument all but evaporated Monday when the company announced that as part of its plan to save US$6 billion by the year 2020, it was also shutting down production at four other U.S. plants – several of them deep in Rust Belt states that helped elevate Trump to the presidency in 2016.

TIMELINE: GM Canada’s rise, fall, bailout and eventual departure from Oshawa

“The U.S. got hit harder than we did,” said one Canadian government insider. “This is about a global restructuring in the industry towards electric and (artificial intelligence)-driven autonomous vehicles.”

Nor is the restructuring aimed exclusively at blue-collar workers. GM is also slashing salaried and salaried contract staff by 15 per cent, which includes a quarter of its executives. The US$6 billion in savings includes operating-cost reductions of US$4.5 billion and lower capital spending of almost US$1.5 billion a year.

That didn’t seem to placate Trump, who famously promised Ohio supporters their jobs were “all coming back” during a 2017 rally not far from GM’s Lordstown facility, where production will grind to a halt in the spring.

Trump described being “very tough” in his conversation with General Motors CEO Mary Barra.

“I said, ‘You know, this country has done a lot for General Motors. You better get back in there soon. That’s Ohio,’ ” he said Monday. “I have no doubt that in a not-too-distant future, they’ll put something else. They better put something else in.”

Whatever that “something else” turns out to be, it’s a safe bet it won’t run on fossil fuels – a leap of faith that Keller described as a bold venture into unknown territory.

“I really do believe that this is a company that is identifying for itself a very different business model. This is their statement about the future – it may be completely wrong, but I don’t think that politics has much to do with it,” she said. “There is fear, frankly, in terms of what this revolution means for traditional auto companies. I’m not about to hang crepe and say it’s going away. It’s not going away.”

Mitch Marner has 3 assists to lift Toronto Maple Leafs to 4-2 win against Boston Bruins

Written by admin on  Categories: 上海夜生活

On a night when Patrick Marleau celebrated his 1,600th NHL game, Mitch Marner did what he does best —; make goals.

The 21-year-old winger had three assists in Toronto’s 4-2 win over the Boston Bruins on Monday. Two were primary assists, upping his NHL-best total to 24 (he has 27 assists in all). It was the 10th multi-assist game of the season for Marner, who also has six goals.

龙凤419论坛

“He has great vision out there,” said the 39-year-old Marleau. “The way he skates and handles the puck, he can manoeuvre around guys and draw guys to him. He did that quite a bit tonight.”

“He’s found a nice groove here,” he added. “He’s only going to keep getting better I think. And that’s pretty scary.”

Asked about Marner, Leafs coach Mike Babcock said all great players manage to play at their own pace.

“What’s amazing is most of us have no time and space whatsoever. Or we’re just banging it here, banging it there and chasing it. And then the really good guys seem to have all the time in the world … They’re gliding all over the rink and it seems effortless.”

Travis Dermott, who scored the first goal of the game off a Marner assist, marvelled at his teammate.

“With the puck, without the puck, he’s definitely a slippery guy,” said Dermott. “And if you get open, he’s going to find you and get the puck to you right on the tape and pretty flat. He’s a guy you want to be out there with.”

Each team scored twice in a frenetic second period that saw Boston outshoot Toronto 18-9. With the Leafs leading 3-2 going into the third, Boston’s Danton Heinen hit the goalpost but the Bruins could not breach the Leafs defence.

Zach Hyman added an empty-net goal with 1:35 remaining to seal Toronto’s fifth straight home win. Frederik Andersen made 38 saves in collecting his 13th win of the season.

Igor Ozhiganov and Josh Leivo also scored for Toronto (17-8-0). Ozhiganov celebrated his first career NHL goal and Dermott his second.

David Pastrnak, who had a hat trick in a 5-1 win over Toronto on Nov. 10, scored twice for Boston (13-7-4).

The Bruins lost Kevan Miller late in the first period after the defenceman took a puck to the throat area off a John Tavares shot. The close-range shot seemed to hit Miller’s stick and ride up to the neck area.

Boston coach Bruce Cassidy said Miller went to hospital and was to remain overnight for observation with some swelling in the throat area.

“Right now he’s out of any danger, from what we’ve heard,” Cassidy said.

“Looks like X-rays are negative, [he] got it in the throat,” he added. “They’re going to keep him overnight for observation, make sure his breathing stays normal. Hopefully, he’s able to fly back [Tuesday], that’s the plan.”

Both teams were playing their fourth game in six nights.

The win moves third-place Toronto four points ahead of fourth-place Boston in the Atlantic Division.

The Bruins, who won 3-2 in Montreal on Saturday night, arrived having won two straight and three of their last four. Toronto was coming off a 6-0 win over visiting Philadelphia on Saturday night.

Marleau is the 11th NHLer to reach the 1,600 regular-season game milestone. Marleau has missed just 31 games over 21 seasons since making his NHL debut on Oct. 1, 1997.

“Great, great human being,” Babcock said prior to the game.

“Hard worker, great pro, great person,” he added. “So important for this team, it’s not even funny and I’m not even talking about what he does on the ice. He’s fantastic.”

Marleau got a standing ovation from the Scotiabank Arena crowd after a video tribute in the first period.

“That was amazing. It was unexpected, but it was greatly appreciated,” he said.

It was the 672nd meeting between the two Original Six teams in a rivalry that dates back to 1924.

Toronto’s Nazem Kadri, whose line was active all night, hit the goalpost with a backhand after being put in alone by a Dermott stretch pass. Boston’s Colby Cave hit the Toronto crossbar soon after with a shot through traffic.

Dermott finally beat Jaroslav Halak with a shot through traffic at 17:44 for his first of the season after the Bruins’ top line couldn’t clear the puck.

Boston, gaining momentum, outshot Toronto 10-0 to open the second period before Toronto put up a shot midway through the period. Pastrnak, off a feed from Brad Marchand, tied it up on the power play at 3:39

The Bruins hit another goalpost on the power play later in the second period. Seconds later, with the penalty over, a freewheeling Marner found Ozhiganov cruising in from the point and his shot banked in off a Boston body at 13:06.

Pastrnak tied it up at 14:22, taking a nifty Torey Krug pass to the side of the net before slotting it past Andersen to up his season total to 19.

Leivo put Toronto ahead 3-2 on the power play at 18:38, banging home a Tyler Ennis rebound after a Marner rush.

The Leafs sacrificed for the cause, with Ron Hainsey leading with five blocked shots.

Both teams were missing key parts.

Toronto was without Auston Matthews (shoulder) while restricted free agent William Nylander remains unsigned. The Bruins injured list included star centre Patrice Bergeron (rib) and defencemen Zdeno Chara (left knee) and Charlie McAvoy (concussion).

Andersen is now 11-1-0 in the regular season record against Boston. He is 3-3 against the Bruins in the post-season.

Toronto hosts the San Jose Sharks on Wednesday.

Pro golfer blames Air Canada for temporarily losing clubs, hurting his chance at the European Tour

Written by admin on  Categories: 上海夜生活

Pro golfer Austin Hughes has blamed Air Canada for a major setback in his career as a professional golfer, after the airline temporarily lost his clubs.

Back in October, the Delta athlete flew from Vancouver to Lisbon, Portugal to try to qualify for the European Tour – one of the top pro golf tours in the world.

He missed the cut and did not earn his playing card.

“That trip was for me to set up my career and I wanted to play on the European Tour for 2019, but this has been a setback,” said Hughes.

The travel nightmare began when Hughes and his coach traveled from Vancouver to Lisbon.

They had checked their bags at YVR, but their luggage and Hughes’ golf clubs didn’t travel with them.

“Instead of practicing and preparing for the tournament, you are now battling Air Canada,” Hughes said.

Hughes said there was a major communications breakdown with the airline.

He said he spent days trying to track down his golf clubs, but that he was bounced from one representative to the next.

Finally, Hughes said he was forced to ask his father to drive out to YVR to investigate.

“After seven hours, he was able to make a simple phone call to the airport in Toronto and find my clubs and my clothing,” said Hughes.

By then it was too late, Hughes said.  He was forced to use rental clubs for part of the tournament.

He didn’t make the cut.

“Trying to qualify for the European Tour was a dream of mine this year and I worked really hard on my game trying to get to that next level,” said Hughes.

The entire trip, which included Hughes’ entry fee, cost Hughes approximately $9,000.

Air Canada compensated Hughes and his coach $900 in total, apologizing for the inconvenience.

Air Canada also offered Hughes and his coach two travel vouchers valued at $500 each as a goodwill gesture after Consumer Matters investigated.

A second $100 cheque was issued to cover the baggage fee.

Air Canada told Consumer Matters that the customers’ original Oct. 2 flights from Vancouver to Calgary and Toronto were cancelled due to extreme winter weather in Alberta.

They rebooked on a non-stop flight from Vancouver to Toronto, ensuring Hughes and his coach could still make their connecting flight from Toronto to Lisbon that same night.

“Unfortunately, YVR airport experienced a breakdown of its baggage system that day, so these customers’ bags could not be loaded on the same flight to Toronto and had to be sent later,” the airline said.

Travel experts warn people to have a backup when travelling with important cargo.

A luggage forwarding company can help — they function like couriers.

While they do present an additional cost, it could prove to be money well spent.

“If something is vital to you whether it be for your work or for your health for whatever reason, make sure you have either a backup or you may look at another way of sending whatever it is that you need just to ensure it’s done, said Claire Newell of Travel Best Bets.

Newell added, “unfortunately with airlines, not just Air Canada, communication is really tough for organizations this size, the backward and forward, not being able to get a hold of somebody to speak to in person.”

Hughes hopes that Air Canada improves its communication with customers — though he appreciates the airline’s offer.

“They definitely need to make a better effort on how they resolve these issues with their customers,” he said.

Mother, baby in good health after evidence of childbirth found in Mississauga park

Written by admin on  Categories: 上海夜生活

Peel Regional Police say a mother and baby are in good health after evidence of childbirth was found in a park in Mississauga.

Police said they were contacted on Monday around 3:50 p.m. regarding a suspicious incident at Sugar Maple Woods Park near Glen Erin Drive just south of Thomas Street.

Authorities said officers arrived on scene and located blood, forceps and other evidence consistent with childbirth.

On Tuesday evening, Const. Danny Marttini told Global News that a relative saw the media reports and contacted them to say the mother and baby are all right. Police said a home birth took place a year ago in Brantford, Ont., and that things were kept after the birth for “holistic purposes.”

The objects were placed in the park to be “reunited with nature,” Marttini said.

Police said a man walking his dog was the one who located the items on Monday.

Police said they were concerned about the well-being of the mother and baby.

A resident said her 24-year-old son was walking the family dog in the park when they made the discovery.

“He was just taking the dog for his usual four o’clock walk at the end of the day and Wallace, the little dog, just pulled him off the path and started sniffing at something —; which is not unusual for a dog —; until my son went over and he saw what he saw,” Karen Forsythe said.

“We have coyotes in the woods. If it was there an hour before, it would have been gone.”
