Madely's Top 5
5. Bobby’s hernia
We now know why Bobby Ryan's production fell so sharply towards the end of the season. He was playing with a hernia. The Sens have now confirmed that the high-scoring winger is going to miss the club’s final 10 games after surgery in Montreal to repair the sports hernia which occurred in November. Since December 1, which is around the time when the injury happened, Ryan had 10 goals in 43 games, leading up to that point he had 13 goals in 27 games. The Sens are home to Chicago tonight at 7:30.
4. Malaysian jet search changes again
Australia is shifting the search for the Malaysian airliner yet again sighting new information. It’s been 3 weeks since the jetliner vanished and the Australians are discounting the value of numerous recent sightings of potential wreckage. New interpretation of radar and other data suggest the Malaysian airliner was flying faster than previously assumed, therefore it would have run out of fuel more rapidly than they thought.
3. NDP spending scandal?
The Conservatives are trying to pin a new misspending allegation on the NDP. Thomas Mulcair, the NDP leader, will face an unexpected grilling from Members of Parliament after being ordered to testify before a parliamentary committee about his party’s ‘outreach’ offices around the country. They are partially funded through the House of Commons budget. The Tories are alleging that this is a misuse of parliamentary funds for purely partisan purposes.
2. Boy recovering after school accident
A 13-year-old Ottawa boy who was rushed to CHEO in critical condition after a west-end high school accident yesterday is expected to recover. The teen was crushed between a gym door and the wall shortly before 1 o'clock at Notre Dame High School. The doors, which are about 30 feet high, act as a motorized folding divider in the school's gym. By the time staff was able to free him, he was no longer breathing. A teacher performed CPR and managed to revive him.
1. New cancelled gas plant allegations
The Ontario Conservatives are demanding the NDP drop their support of Premier Kathleen Wynne and force an immediate election over police allegations of criminal breach of trust in the Premier’s office in order to "leave no footprint behind" related to the two gas plant cancellations prior to the 2011 election.
Court documents released yesterday contain police allegations that former Premier Dalton McGuinty's chief of staff, David Livingston, sought permission to "wipe clean the hard drives" on computers during the transition between Wynne becoming Premier and McGuinty leaving office. P.C. leader Tim Hudak claims that permission would have come from the incoming Premier at the time, Kathleen Wynne. She angrily denied personal involvement yesterday and sought to show that the former chief of staff left the Premier's office on February 11, 2013, the day she became Premier.
