Congratulations to Canada’s junior men’s hockey team, who beat Russia to win gold at the World Junior Hockey Championship last night. In all likelihood, Vladmir Putin is thoroughly unimpressed. In the news: A Toronto illustrator brings attention to the stories of missing and murdered aboriginal women, Stephen Harper and Kathleen Wynne finally have a meeting, and two CBC executives are put on indefinite leave related to the Jian Ghomeshi sex scandal.

On this day in 1895, French captain Alfred Dreyfus was stripped of his rank after being convicted of treason. The Dreyfus Affair was a sad chapter in French history and almost tore the Third Republic apart. In today's (2015) news: a ticketing and towing blitz begins to enforce a no-tolerance rule on illegal parking, the implementation of a province-wide computer system in Children's Aid Societies may take years longer than expected, a model says her face was used to advertise skin-lightening procedures without her consent, and the Pan Am velodrome hosts its first test event.

The Toronto Maple Leafs made a ridiculously awkward holiday greeting card video to wish fans happy holidays. After presumably losing some sort of bet, Leafs players Joffrey Lupul, Jake Gardiner, and David Clarkson were recorded belting out their best version of “Jingle Bell Rock,” which may go down as one of the worst renditions ever sung. In the news: Toronto Hydro says it's learned from the ice storm of 2013, Ontario’s ombudsman threatens to launch an investigation into the Toronto South Detention Centre, and the TTC speeds up a review of bus and streetcar operator safety after the death of Amaria Diljohn.

Even as we finish buying presents and look forward to a few hard-earned days off, the world keeps turning and things keep happening. Many of those things are terrible and heartbreaking. In the news: 14-year-old Amaria Diljohn was struck and killed by a TTC bus, the overhaul of Nathan Phillips Square hits some (possibly permanent) snags, and a new program helps women gain their footing after leaving abusive relationships.

Weekend Newsstand: December 20, 2014

The Raptors have unveiled a new logo and colour scheme, to be paired with a new uniform next season. Expect big things from them (if only because every other team in this town will let you down without fail). In the news this second-last Saturday of 2014: the top baby names of the year were kind of predictable, residents react to changes at Alexandra Park, and Christmas trees placed downtown to protest the treatment of homeless people find homes.
