Extra, Extra: Heritage Minister Performs Drake Hit, Recommendations For Injection Sites, and Mississauga Woman Hits The Jackpot

Every weekday’s end, we collect just about everything you ought to care about or ought not to miss.

  • Canadian Heritage Minister Mélanie Joly was running through the 6ix with her woes today, as she collaborated with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra and students from the Regent Park School of Music to perform Drake’s “Know Yourself.” Albeit, the minister’s contribution was simply shaking a pair of maracas, but the performance is great nonetheless. Has the Canadian government reached peak Drake yet?
  • Toronto’s Medical Officer of Health is recommending that the City transform three clinics into small-scale, supervised injection sites. The clinics are already providing drug users with clean needles, so the transformation seems a natural next step in reducing the growing number of overdoses in Toronto. The move would follow Vancouver, which is home to the only two safe injection sites in Canada.
  • A Mississauga woman can consider herself one lucky duck after collecting the largest lottery jackpot in Canadian history. Zhe Wang claimed $64 million after a win in an October 2015 Lotto 6/49 draw. Her ticket was the only winner in the draw. Looks like The Barenaked Ladies have a new song to write.
