Flooding across Canada
Thousands of people across Canada have been forced from their homes due to floods and relief isn’t coming soon.

Salmonella outbreak from desert snacks
More than 70 people across the country have gotten sick and two have died from salmonella poising in pastries. Celebrate brand chocolate eclairs and cream puffs are being recalled because of the outbreak that has caused people ranging from one to 88-years-old to become sick. So far 27 people have fallen ill in B.C., 13 in Ontario and 12 in Alberta. Officials aren’t sure how much of a part salmonella played in the two reported deaths.
