Toronto‘s undocumented residents earn new rights

Toronto city council approved a motion that helps undocumented residents use municipal services, which are easily accessible for legal Canadian residents.

CP24 reports the proposed changes can assist newcomers in sending their children to local schools, to use health, recreation and employment services, and receive help from a food bank.

The motion, approved Thursday night, also calls for a federal regularization program for those without full and secure immigration status, and asks for a provincial review of similar social services.

Solidarity City Network spokesman Syed Hussan told CP24 that approximately 400,000 people are living in Toronto without full immigration status.

“We need the province to join in, we need the federal government to make its moves and we need Torontoto set the path forward,” said Hussan, to the news channel. 

Freezing rain warning

The February freezing rain blahs continue for those in the Greater Toronto Area, according to a new special weather statement from Environment Canada.

The government agency warns of a possible freezing rain and snow combination for Friday afternoon.

“Untreated surfaces may become icy and slippery making for hazardous travelling conditions,” said the statement, as per 680 News.

Approximately two to five centimetres of snow is expected to fall, but the freezing drizzle could last for several hours, into Friday night.

Adam Sandler + Drew Barrymore = 3?

The Wedding Singer 2? 41 First Dates? Bankable box office couple Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore are reportedly set to film their third romantic comedy together this May.

Variety reports Sandler has signed on to the project, and Barrymore is “being eyed as the female lead, but no offer has been made.” The trade also reports the still-untitled Warner Bros. Production features a “couple who, after a disastrous blind date, find themselves stuck together with their kids from a previous marriage.”

Still, there’s no word yet about a possible Billy Idol cameo in the film.
