6 dead in plane crash during sightseeing trip on Quebec’s North Shore

WATCH ABOVE: Quebec provincial police say six people are dead after a seaplane crashed on the province’s North Shore. Global’s Paola Samuel reports.

LES BERGERONNES, Que. – All six people aboard a seaplane that crashed on the province’s North Shore have died, Quebec provincial police said Monday.

The Air Saguenay plane went down in a wooded area on Sunday afternoon, police said, near the community of Les Bergeronnes, about 250 kilometres northeast of Quebec City.

Authorities confirmed Monday all six bodies have been found and were handed over to the coroner’s office.

Air Saguenay vice-president Jean Tremblay said the Beaver seaplane was taking part in a routine sightseeing flight departing from Lac Long in Tadoussac.

Tremblay told The Canadian Press on Monday the flight was only supposed to last 20 minutes. It wasn’t windy and visibility was clear on Sunday.

“It was perfect conditions,” Tremblay said. “At first glance, the weather conditions are not at all the cause, that is clear.”

He offered his sympathies to families who lost loved ones in the crash – among them, a longtime employee of the company.

Tremblay said the pilot of the aircraft had more than 6,000 hours of flying experience – all with Air Saguenay, where he’d worked for the past 14 years.

“It’s not going so well,” a shaken Tremblay said. “This is not a good day for us. It’s very difficult for the Air Saguenay team.”

Tremblay said the De Havilland DHC-2 Beaver in question had about 25,000 hours of flight time, not unusual for a plane built between 1950 and 1960.

No distress calls were made by the plane before it crashed.

The airline upgraded its security system after another of its seaplanes crashed in bad weather in 2010, killing four of the six people on board.

It describes itself as an airline that provides charters for fishing, hunting and mining exploration.

The Transportation Safety Board sent a team of investigators to the crash site and the provincial police say they are continuing their own investigation to determine if a criminal element caused the crash.

The wreckage was not accessible by road, and was located with the help of parachutists from the Canadian Armed Forces. Air Force personnel also aided in recovery efforts.

Bad weather in the region on Monday caused delays in getting to the crash site.

Authorities published a photo that showed the wreckage of the plane in a wooded area.

Many students need budget training: CIBC – National

TORONTO – If past practice is any indication, the majority of post-secondary school students will likely run out of money before the school year ends — and end up turning to the Bank of Mom and Dad for help.

A new poll from CIBC (TSX:CM) has found that 51 per cent of post-secondary students tapped their parents for additional financial support last year because they ran out of money.

And according to the bank, there wasn’t much difference between students from higher- and lower-income families.

CIBC said some 48 per cent of students from families with household incomes of more than $125,000 tapped their parents for extra cash, compared with 52 per cent from families with household incomes of less than $75,000.

Sarah Widmeyer, managing director and head of Wealth Advisory Services, at the bank, said that even though 86 per cent of parents surveyed considered themselves good role models for financial planning, some students were treating their parents like personal ATMs.

Widmeyer said young people need to understand that their parents may not always be willing or able to dispense extra cash and that being taught basic financial and budgeting skills before they go off to college or university is essential.

“Clearly, being a good financial role model doesn’t mean your children will understand how to manage their own finances,” she said.

“That’s why it is so important to teach them the importance of balancing a budget in their early teens because it’s a much a tougher lesson to learn when they are off living on their own for the first time in their lives.”

The online survey was conducted Aug. 13-17 among 1,001 Canadian parents who are Angus Reid Forum panellists.

The polling industry’s professional body, the Marketing Research and Intelligence Association, says online surveys cannot be assigned a margin of error because they do not randomly sample the population.

Former mayoral candidate Melanie Joly to represent Liberals – Montreal

MONTREAL – A high-profile former Montreal mayoral candidate and friend of Justin Trudeau has won the Liberal nomination in the Montreal-area riding of Ahuntsic-Cartierville.

Melanie Joly, who finished second in Montreal’s 2013 vote for mayor, received the nod in a vote held Sunday.

She was criticized earlier this month after it was discovered she had given a $250 donation to a Conservative Party candidate in 2011.

Joly said she made the donation because the candidate was a member of her business circle and maintained she “never had any ties” with the Conservatives.

In June, some of her rivals speculated the party was delaying the nomination date to allow Joly to sign up more members.

Joly will now have to take on Maria Mourani, the former Bloc Québécois MP who is now running for the NDP.

Andre De Grasse faces seven-figure decision – National

BEIJING – Moments after Andre De Grasse raced to bronze at the world championships against one of the finest 100-metre fields ever assembled, the questions began.

What’s next? Will you turn pro?

The 20-year-old from Markham, Ont., faces a huge seven-figure decision over the next few weeks – whether to run his senior season at the University of Southern California, or sign with one of the dozens of agents clamouring to work with the young star.

De Grasse has talked about returning to school in the past, but didn’t sound so sure Sunday night.

“A lot has changed right now. I just got a bronze medal. I’ve got to talk to my coach and make what’s best for me and my family, so we’ll go from there,” De Grasse said.

“Whatever my mom says, that’s my goal, to get my degree first,” he hastily added.

De Grasse was offered a seven-figure shoe deal, a source told The Canadian Press back in June – well before Sunday’s breathtaking race for bronze at the Bird’s Nest Stadium, and even before his double-gold Pan American Games performance in July.

He’s a marketer’s dream. The track and field version of basketball star Andrew Wiggins, De Grasse is young, humble, likable and oozing with potential. And the 100 metres is the glamour event of the Olympics, a race that determines the world’s fastest man.

“Everyone is trying to sign him,” said Kris Mychasiw, managing partner of Sprint Management. “If he said he wanted to go pro, and that he wanted to sign with us, I’d do somersaults around the Edge Walk.”

A shoe contract typically covers a several-year cycle that includes an Olympic Games and a world championship. But De Grasse stands to make money on more than just the brand of shoes he wears.

Mychasiw, who works in partnership with Canadian sprint legend Bruny Surin, estimates De Grasse could earn much as C$700,000 in endorsement deals in 2016, and could ink a shoe contract worth an additional $700,000 a year.

“The shoe deal is security but he would be very valuable in an Olympic year,” Mychasiw said in an interview from his Montreal home. “Companies like SportChek, Proctor and Gamble, et cetera would be interested to work with him as they are big partners of the (Canadian Olympic Committee). He would also command a very healthy appearance fee at meets.”

Usain Bolt, track and field’s richest athlete, commands as much as $400,000 to race in a meet, Mychasiw said.

READ MORE: Andre De Grasse ready to take on world’s best in Beijing

The Jamaican superstar, who edged Justin Gatlin for 100-metre gold here, went out of his way to congratulate De Grasse in the broadcast area Sunday night in a momentous gesture.

“When you get acknowledged by Bolt, it means you’re the real deal,” Mychasiw said.

It’s been nearly two decades since Donovan Bailey and Surin were racing to Olympic and world medals. Canada hasn’t had a world contender since.

De Grasse is only the third Canadian to run a sub-10-second 100 following those two (convicted doper Ben Johnson ran 9.79 in 1988 but all his times have been erased from the record books), and his bronze was the first world medal for Canada in the 100 since Surin raced to silver in 1999.

The 100 metres, Mychasiw said, is a “legacy event” in Canada.

“Donovan and Bruny set such a high standard of excellence, and it took nearly 15 years for anyone in Canada to run sub-10 and for him to run it five times so far in 2015 shows he’s not a one-hit wonder,” Mychasiw said. “Heading into Rio, he will be considered a medal threat.

“What’s great with Andre, he doesn’t hide from anyone,” he added. “He goes out there and runs his race whether it’s from the middle of the track, Lane 8 in the Pan Ams 200 and Lane 9 at worlds.”

Athletics Canada appealed De Grasse’s lane assignment before the final, to no avail. De Grasse didn’t care.

“At the end of the day, it’s a 100 metres,” De Grasse said. “I wasn’t going to let that distract me. This is the final, this is the biggest race of my life, so I’m not going to think about no lane assignment.”

His mom Beverley De Grasse said recently she’d prefer he finish his degree before going pro.

Mychasiw said the sprint star could have the best of both worlds. While going pro would make him ineligible to compete in the NCAA, it wouldn’t prevent him from continuing to attend school.

“I’d sign, capitalize on the endorsements, and stay in school,” he said. “He can continue to get an education, be an assistant coach at USC, work with the team that’s done a great job with him.

“Track is such a different sport, one day you can be top, tomorrow a career-ending injury.”

While De Grasse stands to earn a very comfortable living, Mychasiw was quick to point out, his earning potential is rare in the sport.

“Many athletes in the top 30 in the world struggle to make $30,000 a year. One per cent of athletes make 99 per cent of the money,” said Mychasiw.

Canada’s other bronze medallist Sunday was Ben Thorne, a 22-year-old from Kitimat, B.C., who was third in the 20-kilometre racewalk.

In response to a tweet about De Grasse’s seven-figure shoe offer, retired Olympic racewalker Tim Berrett replied: “Meanwhile, @BGthorne will be hoping for a deal that offers 7 pairs of shoes.”

There are between 200 and 300 registered track and field agents worldwide, Mychasiw said. But of those, only about 30 are considered elite, representing the sport’s top athletes. Among the athletes he represents: Luguelin Santos of the Dominican Republic, who was second in his semifinal of the 400 metres Sunday, Canadian hurdlers Priscilla Lopes-Schliep, Nikkita Holder and Phylicia George, and bobsledder Kaillie Humphries.

Manitoba beach residents battered by storm face repair bills – Winnipeg

ISLAND BEACH, Man. — Last weekend was anything but relaxing for cottagers and homeowners at Island Beach near Beaconia.

A massive hail storm Saturday caused thousands of dollars in damage and people are still cleaning up the mess in the lakeshore community 50 kilometres north of Winnipeg.

The Island Beach area saw baseball-sized hail and Beaconia received the most rain in the province –140 millimetres fell during the weekend.

Jim Mandziuk said the storm woke him and his wife at 5 a.m. Saturday.

“It was scary,” said Mandziuk. “it sounded like someone on the roof with a slough hammer.”

His bathroom window was shattered, his eavestroughs were bent and his car was dented and the windows smashed.

Mandziuk’s neighbour assessed damage to his property down the road. His entire roof needs repairs after he had more than a dozen leaks into his house and his windows were smashed.

In one driveway sits three vehicles, all with their windshields smashed, all with countless dents.  By 2 pm, Monday, Manitoba Public Insurance had already received more then 400 hail damage claims from the lakes area.

The storm came in with a bang leaving a mess residents had never seen before.

IndyCar driver Justin Wilson in coma after wreck at Pocono – National

WATCH ABOVE: Indy Car racer Justin Wilson was struck in the head after a piece of Sage Karam’s car flew off during a crash in Sunday’s ABC Supply 500.

LONG POND, Pa. – Justin Wilson always understood the danger that lurked behind the wheel for an IndyCar driver.

“When it goes wrong,” Wilson said following his 2012 return from race injuries, “it can get messy.”

It went terribly wrong for Wilson on Sunday.

Story continues below

HangZhou Night Net

The British driver was in a coma in critical condition after sustaining a head injury when he was hit by a large piece of debris that broke off another car in the crash-filled race at Pocono Raceway. IndyCar released the information on Wilson’s condition Sunday night and said he was undergoing evaluation at Lehigh Valley Health Network Cedar Crest Hospital in Allentown.

The debris shot off Sage Karam’s car when Karam spun into the wall late in the race. Wilson’s car veered left and directly into an interior wall. He was quickly swarmed by the safety crew and taken away by helicopter.

“It’s just a tough one right now,” said Michael Andretti, car owner for Wilson and race winner Ryan Hunter-Reay. “Our thoughts and prayers are with Justin right now. We’re going to see. Hopefully, he’s OK.”

Wilson’s wife, Julia, was transported to Pennsylvania from their home in Colorado by IndyCar, while his younger brother, Stefan, was lent Tony Stewart’s plane to make the trip from Indianapolis. Stewart, the three-time NASCAR champion and former IndyCar champion, is an Indiana native.

“Praying for my bro right now,” he tweeted.

IndyCar had a subdued victory lane and Hunter-Reay said his thoughts were only with Wilson, a popular driver in the paddock.

The accident was a grim reminder how drivers in open-wheel racing put their lives on the line.

Indianapolis 500 winner Dan Wheldon died in 2011 after his car became ensnared in a fiery 15-car pileup, flew over another vehicle and landed in a catch fence at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Wheldon’s head hit a post in the fence, and he died instantly. He was the last fatality in a form of racing that saw drivers Scott Brayton (1996), Tony Renna (2003) and Paul Dana (2006), among others, die after wrecks.

IndyCar was forced to answer tough questions about safety in the scary lead-up to this year’s Indianapolis 500. The cars of Helio Castroneves, Josef Newgarden and Ed Carpenter all went airborne during practice sessions leading up to the race, though all three drivers walked away unscathed. But James Hinchcliffe suffered a life-threatening injury when he slammed into the turn three wall at more than 220 mph and a broken piece of his suspension pierced his left thigh. His season was over.

On Sunday, drivers fanned out eight-wide across the track off a restart late in the race – a spectacle both thrilling and dangerous.

“Four wide, five wide, then Takuma (Sato) got inside of me,” Indy 500 champion Juan Pablo Montoya said. “My spotter didn’t even know what to say.”

The race resumed after the Karam and Wilson accident with seven laps remaining and Hunter-Reay picked his way through the field. He passed Montoya, Takuma Sato and then used a bold inside pass of leader Gabby Chaves to take the lead with five laps to go.

Chaves then appeared to have an engine failure that brought out the caution with three to go. The race ended under yellow. Josef Newgarden was second and IndyCar points leader Montoya finished third.

Hunter-Reay was one of many discussing safety measures – and not his win – for the open-cockpit series.

“Maybe in the future we can work toward something that resembles a canopy,” Hunter-Reay said. “Something that can give us a little bit of protection and still keep the tradition of the sport. Just to be innocent bystander like that and get hit in the head with a nose cone is a scary thought.”

The 37-year-old Wilson, a native of Sheffield, England, entered this season without a full-time ride. He latched on with Andretti and was in the sixth of seven scheduled races with the team. The deal was put together right before the season-opening race in March and initially started as just a two-race agreement at Indianapolis.

Sponsorship was found for another five races as the season progressed, and Wilson finished a season-best second earlier this month at Mid-Ohio. He said after the race that he raced clean and did not take any risks that would have jeopardized eventual race-winner Graham Rahal because Rahal was part of the championship race and Wilson was not.

Wilson broke a bone in his back at Mid-Ohio in 2011. He missed the final six races of the season and wore a back brace for more than two months as he was restricted from any physical activity. The injury kept him out of the season finale at Las Vegas and the race where Wheldon died.

He broke his pelvis and suffered a bruised lung in the 2013 season finale at Fontana.

Wilson said in 2012 his injuries and Wheldon’s death did nothing to change his perspective or make him question his career choice.

“I’ve had the conversation with Julia – this is what we do, and you try to make the best plans if that ever happens,” Wilson told The Associated Press upon his return in 2012. “You’ve got to know the risks and work out if those risks are acceptable. To me, it’s acceptable. But I’m not going to stop trying to improve it.

“All the drivers, this IndyCar, we’re always trying to make it safer, but at the end of the day, it’s a race car. We’re racing hard, we’re racing IndyCars and it’s fast.”

Ashley Madison data leaks: What to do if online scammers target you – National

WATCH ABOVE: Toronto Police urging those who are getting extortion messages from Ashley Madison hack not to pay

TORONTO – The Ashley Madison data leak has stirred up a lot of trouble. Not only have the leaks exposed millions of users’ potential desire for infidelity, but spread their personal information – including credit card details – all over the web.

But now there is a bigger problem stemming from these data leaks – criminals are capitalizing on the incident to try to extort people and spread malicious software.

Toronto Police confirmed Monday a number of Ashley Madison users have been contacted by scam artists who threatened to share their profile information with friends, family and even employers unless they hand over money.

“If you would like to prevent me from sharing this dirt with all of your friends and family (and perhaps even your employer too?) then you need to send exactly 1.05 Bitcoins to the following address,” said an email dated Aug. 23 directed at a client released by Toronto police on Monday.

Police say the Bitcoin amount is equal to around $300 Canadian.

Websites that promise to provide access to the leaked client names, but instead deliver malware, have also popped up.

As with any sort of data leak, it’s important to remember that criminals will always use these opportunities to capitalize on those who might be affected. But you could still be targeted even if you weren’t an Ashley Madison user.

Here are some best practices when it comes to recognizing and avoiding phishing scams:

Don’t be fooled by official logos

One of the most common ways that phishing scams will try to fool you is by using official company logos or insignias. In some cases, the email address or web address may look close to the company’s name, but is slightly altered or off by a letter.

Scammers will also try to set up email accounts that look like official accounts. For example, according to an email forwarded to Global News, one of the Ashley Madison scam emails appears to be coming from the email address [email protected]

Check links before you click on them

This tip is especially important: Never click on a link included in a suspicious email.

Often attackers will use a legitimate web address in the hyperlinked text of the email, but once you click on the link it takes you to a malicious website.

But, if you hover your mouse over the link – without clicking on it – a small yellow box will appear showing the actual web address the link will take you to. If the link doesn’t match the hyperlinked text, it’s likely malicious.

An example of a malicious link.

Note: In some browsers, like Google Chrome, the yellow box will appear in the bottom left hand side of the window instead of directly below the link.

Be proactive

As phishing scams become more sophisticated and harder to spot right away, it’s best to be proactive when it comes to online security.

This means making sure your web browser software is up to date, ensuring that its security features are protecting you against the latest discovered vulnerabilities. This means you should use a browser that has good security functions.

READ MORE: How to protect your computer from malware

Google Chrome, for example, uses two main security features – the Safe Browsing API site list, as well as a feature that confines infectious programs to the open browser page, preventing the virus from spreading to the computer, if the user comes across a dangerous site.

You should also use some sort of anti-virus software on your computer.

Report possible scams to the police

Because the Ashley Madison data leaks are currently under investigation, police are asking that the public report any possible scams or incidents of extortion to their local authorities.

Toronto Police have also set up a dedicated social media and outreach channel to the Ashley Madison investigation. You can contact the investigative team at (416) 808-2040, or send them a direct message on 桑拿会所 at @AMcaseTPS.

Remember: If you receive an email asking for money in exchange for having your Ashley Madison details deleted, it’s nothing more than a scam.

As Toronto Police pointed out, the database containing leaked account information has been spread all over the Internet, which means it’s very unlikely the record of that account could ever be erased completely.

Here are some best practices when it comes to recognizing and avoiding phishing scams:

Don’t be fooled by official logos

One of the most common ways that phishing scams will try to fool you is by using official company logos or insignias. In some cases, the email address or web address may look close to the company’s name, but is slightly altered or off by a letter.

Scammers will also try to set up email accounts that look like official accounts. For example, according to an email forwarded to Global News, one of the Ashley Madison scam emails appears to be coming from the email address [email protected]

Check links before you click on them

This tip is especially important: Never click on a link included in a suspicious email.

Often attackers will use a legitimate web address in the hyperlinked text of the email, but once you click on the link it takes you to a malicious website.

But, if you hover your mouse over the link – without clicking on it – a small yellow box will appear showing the actual web address the link will take you to. If the link doesn’t match the hyperlinked text, it’s likely malicious.

An example of a malicious link.

Note: In some browsers, like Google Chrome, the yellow box will appear in the bottom left hand side of the window instead of directly below the link.

Be proactive

As phishing scams become more sophisticated and harder to spot right away, it’s best to be proactive when it comes to online security.

This means making sure your web browser software is up to date, ensuring that its security features are protecting you against the latest discovered vulnerabilities. This means you should use a browser that has good security functions.

Google Chrome, for example, uses two main security features – the Safe Browsing API site list, as well as a feature that confines infectious programs to the open browser page, preventing the virus from spreading to the computer, if the user comes across a dangerous site.

You should also use some sort of anti-virus software on your computer.

Report possible scams to the police

Because the Ashley Madison data leaks are currently under investigation, police are asking that the public report any possible scams or incidents of extortion to their local authorities.

Toronto Police have also set up a dedicated social media and outreach channel to the Ashley Madison investigation. You can contact the investigative team at (416) 808-2040, or send them a direct message on 桑拿会所 at @AMcaseTPS.

Remember: If you receive an email asking for money in exchange for having your Ashley Madison details deleted, it’s nothing more than a scam.

As Toronto Police pointed out, the database containing leaked account information has been spread all over the Internet, which means it’s very unlikely the record of that account could ever be erased completely.

Dispute over conversion costs involving Energy East pipeline resolved

EDMONTON — A spat over conversion costs involving TransCanada’s proposed Energy East pipeline project from Alberta and Saskatchewan to eastern refineries and ports has been resolved.

Natural gas customers in Central Canada and New Brunswick will receive a $100-million tariff reduction tied to their energy use from when the converted pipeline enters into service through 2050.

The deal follows the resolution of the dispute between Calgary-based TransCanada and three major gas distributors over the $12-billion project.

Officials say the agreement means the cost of converting the existing pipeline won’t be borne by natural gas customers.

The three distributors came together nearly a year ago to challenge the conversion of an existing 3,000-kilometre segment of cross-Canada natural gas pipe to oil.

Saskatchewan Government Insurance (SGI) officials are reminding motorists that even if workers aren’t present, speed limits are reduced to 60 km/h in the orange zone.

They also say that speeding and aggressive driving behaviors not only put motorists at risk, they endanger the lives of other drivers and road users, which are magnified in work zones due to the presence of workers, additional road hazards, and stop and go traffic.

Along with the speeding tickets, police also issued 100 impaired driving offences, 130 tickets for distracted driving, including 102 for cell phone use, and 293 tickets for not using a seat belt, car seat or booster seat.
