Wednesday: What’s Hot on CanLII

Each Wednesday we tell you which three English-language cases and which French-language case have been the most viewed* on CanLII and we give you a small sense of what the cases are about. For this last week: 1. MDS Inc. v. Factory Mutual Insurance Company, 2021 ONCA 594 [96] The trial judge relied on the American decision in MRI Healthcare to conclude that the resulting loss of use constituted resulting physical damage. That case, however, does not support the proposition that economic loss sh...

A ‘Clueless’ Reboot, Reimagined as a Mystery Series, Has Been Passed Over at Peacock

Looks like this latest attempt to reboot a beloved ’90s classic is…Audi. Even Peacock — home of such resurrected IPs as Saved By the Bell and Punky Brewster — didn’t want to touch the Clueless reboot, which would have reimagined the 1995 romantic-comedy as a mystery series. The Clueless mystery reboot has been passed over by the NBCUniversal streamer, which is already planning a new take on the 1995 movie starring Alicia Silverstone, Brittany Murphy, and Paul Rudd. Per The Hollywood Reporter...

Clueless Reboot Series No Longer Moving Forward at Peacock

Despite this, the outlet’s sources note that Clueless is still a valuable asset to CBS Studios and they are currently looking to redevelop the project with a different story. The cancelled project was set ...

Alexander: Will Anze Kopitar’s 1,000th point be a quiet milestone?

Outside of Los Angeles – and maybe in some precincts within SoCal as well – this will likely be a quiet milestone. At some point in the next six games, possibly as early as Wednesday night in Glendale, Ariz., the Kings’ Anze Kopitar will score a goal or register an assist for his 1,000th career point in the NHL. It will be celebrated among those who care about the Kings. Elsewhere in the NHL, odds are that it will be underplayed. That pretty much has been the story of Kopitar’s career, one that ...

Hockey Notes

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun, - There will be a lot of noise in the coming days about Patrick Marleau’s pursuit of Gordie Howe on the all-time list of NHL games played. Howe played 1,767 NHL games. Marleau, heading into Saturday night, had played 1,762. What doesn’t get mentioned often enough is that Howe played 419 WHA games and somehow that gets forgotten in the record books - Alex Ovechkin is five goals away from passing Marcel Dionne for fifth overall in NHL goal scoring....

"When I was a kid, we were 'free to be you and me' regardless of sex."

From the top-rated comment at (a NYT column we discussed yesterday, here). The full comment, which is from Kate in Oregon: It would appear to me that the current cultural obsession with gender and how one identifies with it is a distraction from true self-knowledge and understanding of each person's unique personality. The current ideas around "gender identity" pigeon-hole people into behaving certain ways to signal their "gender" but what does it even mean? When I was a kid, we were "free to ...

Divided government is "a ticket to obstruction and the very sort of partisan brawling that moderate voters can’t stand."

Argues E.J. Dionne in "The destructive myth about divided government." I am a moderate voter — a voter who abstained this year — and I believe that divided government is a safeguard against extremism. I eagerly clicked on the column because of the title. I'm perfectly ready to have my belief challenged.  The Dionne column is very short. His main point is that the GOP leadership is "committed to preventing a Democratic president from governing successfully — even when that president is willing a...

Lieberman, who teach, respectively, at Cornell and Johns Hopkins.  They begin their "Acknowledgments" note by confessing that they had last taught basic courses to undergraduates on "Americcan Government and Politics" in the now long-ago days of the Clinton Administration.  On returning to teach such courses eleven years later, during the Obama Administration, they "discover[ed] that it was l...

Maple Leafs News & Rumors: Hyman, Tavares, Nylander More

I wonder how many writers who covered Game 4 of the Columbus Blue Jackets versus Toronto Maple Leafs play-in series had started writing an article about the Maple Leafs blowing it yet again. Had the game played out as it seemed destined to, the Maple Leafs would have become the fifth team eliminated on a single day. I certainly saw a number of tweets popping up that signaled that the ‘Maple Leafs Season Ends in Disappointment’ or “Blue Jackets Goaltending Proves to Be Too Strong For Leafs.” R...

Every NHL Team’s All-Time Leader in Points

It means something to have a good NHL career. For players, numbers and success are everything. After all, that’s what defines a players career when they decide to hang them up. That’s what they are remembered for – the trophies, the awards and the career totals statistically. But it’s something else to hold a place within a team’s history books, to have your name enshrined in their respective history, even if it’s just for a moment in time. With that, it’s time we take a look at each franchis...

‘Clueless’ turns 25: The fun, fashion and mystery of the missing plaid outfit

Actress Alicia Silverstone had 60 costume changes in the 1995 comedy “Clueless,” but it was a yellow plaid suit from Dolce & Gabbana that helped make her character Cher iconic. Costume designer Mona May put that look — and all the others — together for writer-director Amy Heckerling. So, given the fashion statement it made, surely she’s kept tabs on the outfit over the years since “Clueless” arrived? As if! “If you tell me where it is, I’ll give you a million dollars,” May says, laughing, during...

Top 10 NHL Lines

The Three Musketeers. David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash. The Marx Brothers. History is filled with trios that are simply great together. And that’s definitely true in the NHL. Hockey lines have been labeled as far back as the 1920s when Bun Cook, Frank Boucher and Bill Cook formed the Rangers’ A-Line which was the train line that ran right underneath their home rink, Madison Square Garden. The naming of lines had its heyday in the 1950s and 60s but has since waned; one ...
