CTV News: Over half of buildings on Toronto Islands threatened by rising flood waters

Above, the flooded Toronto Islands, in Toronto's harbour, are home to houses, cottages, parks and Billy Bishop airport. Record level of Lake Ontario, caused by new Trudeau-Obama signed International Joint Commission policy on releasing less water in January-March period to intentionally raise lake level, and compounded by wet Spring, is causing hundreds of millions of dollars in damages around the lake, along thousands of kilometres of shoreline of the lake, various harbours, rivers and Bay of Quinte which surrounds Prince Edward County. Beaches and wetlands are being devastated along with farms, homes, marinas, municipal roads and streets, and cottages. The level is currently over 3 feet higher than normal and still rising daily.

Welland: Lake Ontario now at highest level ever as floodwaters continue rise

Lake Ontario is now at the highest level since recordkeeping started in 1918 after International Joint Commission instituted controversial new Trudeau-Obama policy that didn't lower lake levels as usual in January-March period to allow for traditional Spring run-off rise. Compounding the flooding already happening in March, heavier than usual April rains have caused massive flooding along thousands of kilometres of Lake Ontario, Bay of Quinte and associated shorelines in New York and Ontario. Beaches and wetlands have been destroyed, homes flooded, and carefully tended shorelines obliterated. Class action lawsuits may be forthcoming, say reports. Above, a summer firepit along the water is flooded and the shoreline is eroding from heavy wave action. The lake is covered in tree debris, big and small, which has been floated off the shores.

Canada: Happy 375th birthday to Montréal, gem in the St. Lawrence

Montréal, Canada's island city in the St. Lawrence River, was founded by the French on May 17, 1642 making it 375 years old today. But archeologists have found evidence that it's actually much older as a settlement; natives established the village of Hochelaga at the foot of Mount Royal at least two centuries before the French arrived. Explorer Jacques Cartier visited Hochelaga on October 2, 1535, and estimated the population of the native people at Hochelaga to be "over a thousand people" then. Montréal is the second-largest primarily French-speaking city in the world after Paris. And with a metropolitan population of over 4 million, it remains a dominant seaport and regional centre of commerce and culture in Canada and North America. ~ Wikipedia

NASCAR: Dale Earnhardt Jr. to retire; most popular driver 14 of his 18 Cup years

Dale Earnhardt Jr., one of the biggest names in NASCAR (National Association of Stock Car Auto Racing), has surprised the racing world by announcing he will retire at the end of the 2017 season. The decision was announced by Hendrick Motorsports, Earnhardt’s team, on Tuesday morning. Earnhardt, a two-time Daytona 500 winner and the son of seven-time NASCAR champion Dale Sr., has consistently been one of NASCAR’s best-loved drivers, but has suffered multiple concussions over the past few years, and missed the final 18 races of last season after crashes in Michigan and Kentucky. He returned to racing this year with no lingering effects from the concussions, but admitted there were times during his rehabilitation when he wondered if he would race again.
