Black Canadians represented 32% of all the charges analyzed between 2013 and 2017, which included failure to comply, cannabis possession, trespassing and some driving offenses -- offenses the research team chose to focus on because they're typically up to an officer's discretion.

How a Credential Evaluation Can Help You Find Employment

by  Jodi Tingling One of the most important job search skills is understanding the perspective of an employer. Most employers use job postings to describe the specific skills and attributes they seek. However, if you want to stand out from other applicants,  you should think past the job ad. Additionally, if you are an internationally educated professional, you may need to submit a credential evaluation with your job application. This will help you quickly verify your overseas education and q...

Disaster Averted

from Michael Traikos of the National Post, On behalf of the entire hockey world: Phew! Crisis averted. A bullet — if not a ping-pong ball — has been dodged. The New York Rangers have won the NHL draft lottery. And while it’s still a bit unusual that a team that was competing in the post-season just a few days ago has now won the No. 1 overall pick, at least Alexis Lafreniere is not going to Pittsburgh, Edmonton or Toronto. Now that would have been embarrassing. That would have...

Maple Leafs News & Rumors: Tortorella, Keefe & Curious Coaching Calls

The Toronto Maple Leafs’ season didn’t end as it was supposed to. That leaves a lot of questions about the team’s future. Outside of the small group of very expensive players who carried most of the offense during the regular season, but who seemed snake-bit around the net during their play-in series against the Columbus Blue Jackets (save for one sweet burst in five minutes at the end of Game 4), is the team’s talent sub-par? Is it time to blow up the roster? Related: Maple Leafs News & Rumo...

Quantum particles timed as they tunnel through a solid

Quantum particles can tunnel through seemingly impassable barriers, popping up on the other side.Quantum tunneling is not a new discovery, but there's a lot that scientists don't know.By super-cooling rubidium particles, researchers use their spinning as a magnetic timer.

Slow-mo replay reveals how close the Toronto Maple Leafs were to landing the first overall pick

You probably haven’t forgotten that the Toronto Maple Leafs statistically owned the best odds of landing Connor McDavid going into the final ball of the four drawn in the NHL’s weighted lottery system back in 2015.

Blue Jackets Qualifying Round Stars – Atkinson, Dubois, Foudy & Korpisalo

On Oct. 21, 2019, after a 4-3 OT win over the Toronto Maple Leafs, Columbus Blue Jackets head coach John Tortorella told reporters: “We’re supposed to suck this year.” This was in response to many pundits who wrote them off as a lost cause after the departure of Artemi Panarin, Sergei Bobrovsky, and Matt Duchene in the offseason. Nearly ten months and a 3-2 series win over the Maple Leafs later, they find themselves in the first round of the playoffs once again. That’s further than Panarin, D...

Done Again

from Cathal Kelly of the Globe and Mail, In Sunday’s deciding Game 5, the Leafs decided to live or die by their Big Three. A super-friends lineup of Auston Matthews, John Tavares and Mitch Marner provided many opportunities – a few of which you could have scored on – and not one was taken. Everyone else in blue stood around and watched them work. Toronto lost the game 3-0 and the series 3-2. On the one hand, this past week was exciting. On the other hand, the NHL doesn’t give out ...

Expand The Playoffs Permanently?

from Damien Cox of the Toronto Star, It would be hard to argue at this point that any of the teams added to make up this year’s group of 24 were substandard or didn’t belong. Teams are bunched closer than ever in the salary-cap era, and based on what we’ve seen in this unprecedented situation, the difference between teams in the middle third of the league and the bottom third may not be as great as some believe. The Vegas Golden Knights certainly demonstrated that it’s possible to sta...

Maple Leafs Eliminated: Did They Miss Kadri’s Passion & Fire?

Following a disappointing end to the 2020 NHL Playoffs Qualifying Round for the Toronto Maple Leafs, the arguments are going to be aplenty. I mean, what in the world could the Maple Leafs need from Nazem Kadri with the talent they have in their lineup already? But it goes far deeper than what he showed on the score sheet and is more of what the Maple Leafs missed in their play-in series with the Columbus Blue Jackets is that little bit of edge. And that’s exactly what Kadri brought to the lineup...

Win Or Go Home

from Bruce Arthur of the Toronto Star, Sunday night the Leafs and Blue Jackets will play Game 5, and at the end of it one of them will be done. And after a season in which Toronto’s talent wasn’t enough to avoid having to play this game, in which they made the same mistakes over and over again, and in which they saved themselves, what do the Toronto Maple Leafs deserve? It’s hard to say, really. All you can say is they’re going to get it, either way. more

Hockey Notes On A Saturday Night

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun, - I have no problem with John Tortorella’s short post-game availability after the collapse in Game 4. He had nothing to say. The questions he was asked weren’t particularly effective. His interview ended quickly. He wasn’t rude. He wasn’t nasty. I do have a problem with Tortorella not being available on Saturday. That’s bush. - Elimination Friday was a fabulous day of hockey and had the feel of excitement that comes along with a great day in the ...

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post, Let me be the first to observe that there has never been a week like this in NHL history.
