Small Toronto Dog Injured After Saving 10-Year-Old From Coyote Attack

Macy, a six-year-old Yorkie mix, saved her 10-year-old owner’s life as they were chased by a coyote while out for a walk in Scarborough, Ontario last week. The small but mighty pup is being called a hero for jumping in front of the coyote and defending Lily Kwan from a possibly fatal attack. The dog had to be taken to an emergency animal hospital, but survived with 40 stitches and other serious injuries to her body and leg.

Biden's keeping the Canada-US border closed makes no sense

The announcement that Canada will reopen to fully vaccinated Americans on Aug. 9 was welcomed news for our border communities.

Canada women’s national team coach Bev Priestman is being second-guessed by some. The thinking goes that had she not opted to rotate a group of starters — including captain Christine Sinclair — for the third and final group match against Great Britain, the Canadians might’ve won the group.

President Biden, however, has thus far refused to return the favor, largely keeping in place restrictions to tourists from those regions. That’s a big mistake, both for our economy and our foreign policy.
