Team Canada’s women’s National basketball team started the FIBA Women’s Olympic Qualifying Tournament with a win over the host country on Thursday afternoon.

Team Canada defeated host Hungary 67-55. Chatham’s Bridget Carleton lead all scorers with 18 points.

The Canadians will now take on #4 ranked Spain this morning at 9:30. A victory over Spain would qualify Canada for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.

Canada will play Japan on Sunday at 9a.m. All games are live on Sportsnet.


Super Bowl LVIII (58) will kick off on Sunday at 6:30 on CBS, CTV and TSN at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas — the home stadium of the Raiders.

The Kansas City Chiefs will play the San Francisco 49ers. Kansas City are the defending Super Bowl champs, winning it 3 times overall. The 49ers have won five. These two teams faced off in 2020, with the Chiefs winning 31-20.

Usher (and guests) will perform at halftime.


Gas prices are expected to rise across the province today.

Most of the Ontario major cities will go up 2 cents per litre to an average of 149.9 cents per litre.

Saturday is Chinese New Year. It’s the year of the Dragon.

Chinese New Year starts tomorrow and kicks off the 15-day Spring Festival.

Spring Festival or the Lunar New Year is the most important time for families to get together, likened by some to Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years combined.

A big family reunion dinner is usually held on Lunar New Year’s Eve, which would be tonight.

A couple things you’re not supposed to do on Chinese New Year are: no sweeping or taking out the trash, because it’s like sweeping wealth away and dumping out good fortune. And washing your hair supposedly washes away your good luck too. Things that are encouraged are: lighting fireworks, wearing red, gifting people cash in red envelopes, and eating dumplings.
