East York Ont. residents and Hadrien Trudeau were living their best Canada-Day lives.
Naturally, she was gifted sporty baby onesies.
Bautista made headlines with his iconic bat-flip.
Let's go Blue Jays!
If you're going to feature the city's baseball team, do it properly.
Iceland's President Guðni Th. Jóhannesson told a group of high school students that he was "fundamentally opposed" to pineapple on pizza. Well, President Not-Björk, I would not want to live in a country where the elected leader prefers seafood over pineapple on pizza.
I have enjoyed living and working in Toronto for the past 35 years, calling Blue Jays games across our great country. But I have also enjoyed just as much sharing my story during the month of Movember in hopes of helping other men realize how valuable early detection is in fighting prostate cancer at the most treatable stages.
That Toronto Blue Jays fans can act like British football hooligans is bad enough, but this bad behaviour becomes far worse when fans resort to racism. Now maybe the Blue Jays didn't want to deal with their own racist fans just before they had to face off against a Cleveland team with a racist name and mascot. But now that the post-season is over for the Blue Jays, this needs to be addressed, and it needs to be addressed immediately.
Thing is, it's not just about Cleveland. It's about dehumanizing and objectifying indigenous people, turning them into insulting caricatures and inaccurate stereotypes. It's about fans putting on redface and headdresses, doing tomahawk chops and war whoops. It's about clinging to the racist past instead of progressing into an equitable future. But change is happening...
Jerry Howarth, everyone.
Even other cities are getting involved!
*Rumour has it* the Grammy award-winning pop star came out wearing a customized Jays jersey for her encore performance of "Rolling in the Deep."

Both of my boys have a rare neurological movement disorder called Dystonia. It causes painful twisting and contractions of the muscles. The episodic nature of it means that one minute they are running and playing like any other child and the next minute their hands and legs stop working. This means lots of falls and has made my six year old apprehensive about participating in team sports.And then he saw you play.
Retreats are filling a real need for women who live a busy, stressful life. They provide a small reprieve from the clamour of life and an island of 'you' time that allows you to learn new life skills, detox, meet like-minded women (some of whom will be friends for life) and recharge your batteries. Think of it as a camping trip for your soul.
"Root, root, root for the Blue Jays... If they don't win it's a shame. Cuz it's one, two, three strikes you're out at the old ballgame."
The Blue Jays finished the 2015 season with 93 wins, the most since the 1993 World Series Championship team. Look for the Jays in 2016 to have another 90+ win season depending on health, consistency and ability to execute in tough situations.
The team that watches together, wins together.
