The freezing cold and the snow did not deter protesters from participating in the third annual Women’s March on Saturday. 


The march in Montreal was one of the many marches that took place  around the world in solidarity with the thousands who marched towards the White House in Washington, D.C.


CBC reports, since its inception in 2017, the march has become an annual event where women come together to highlight issues of misogyny, transphobia and racism.



The federal government is facing a lawsuit from B.C’s First Nation community to stop open-net salmon farming on their lands.


According to APTN news, The Dzawada’enuxw (za-wah-day-nook) First Nation of Kingcome wants Canada to remove 10 salmon farms from their traditional waters located in the Broughton Archipelago northeast of Vancouver Island. The claim argues that the federal government authorized fish farm licenses without their consultation or consent.


The DFN has had a no open-net fish farms policy for 30 years and have been actively protesting against the government for the past three years.


The Dzawada’enuxw community is also against the open-net farms because of the risk they pose to the already low salmon stocks.




It seems Australian baby formulas are a hot-ticket item in China these days.


According to BBC, Australian police confirmed they had busted members of an “expansive” criminal gang which specialized in stealing baby formula for illegal sale in China.


The stolen goods are valued at more than 700, 000 thousand dollars.


Australian baby-formula nicknamed, “white-gold” for its healthier contents is so sought after in China, it sells for over $100 a tin.


Unfortunately, for the criminals, the case was brought to police’s attention due the baby-formula shortage the Australian public was experiencing.
