Cleanup Crew?: “Break-In At Las Vegas Shooter’s Home In Reno Confounds Police”

There’s no longer any reason to believe the police in this case.

The dramatic changing of the timeline on when security guard Jesus Campos was shot was the final straw.

Toronto District School Board to remove ‘chief’ from job titles out of respect for Indigenous communities

The Toronto District School Board (TDSB) will stop using the word ‘chief’ in job titles, citing respect for Indigenous communities.

The TDSB said the decision was inspired by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s (TRC) final report, though the change is also part of a larger initiative to rename titles within the board.

While the TRC report did not explicitly call for the removal of titles such as chief from non-Indigenous applications, it did call for improvements to education, language and culture.
