MANITOBA GOVERNMENT INTRODUCES LEGISLATION TO MODERNIZE RULES ON TICKET RESELLING

MANITOBA GOVERNMENT INTRODUCES LEGISLATION
TO MODERNIZE RULES ON TICKET RESELLING

Manitoba

Manitoba’s government has announced the Reducing Red Tape and Improving Services Act, which includes changes to several regulations to modernize ticket reselling rules. The changes include the repeal of the prohibition on reselling tickets at a markup under the Amusements Act. Consumer Protection and Government Services Minister James Teitsma stated that these changes are necessary to align Manitoba with other North American jurisdictions and reflect the evolving online marketplace.

Teitsma emphasized that Manitoba is currently the only jurisdiction in North America where it is technically illegal for sports or concert fans to sell their tickets for above list price. He added that many Manitobans currently use online sites in the grey market to sell their tickets when there is demand. These changes will bring Manitoba in line with the rest of the continent and allow for the safe buying and selling of tickets.Manitoba

The Reducing Red Tape and Improving Services Act will also allow Manitoba companies to provide secondary ticket services in the province, which means Manitobans will no longer be forced to use out-of-province firms to buy or sell tickets. According to Teitsma, the Amusements Act is currently outdated and out of step with modern consumer experiences in ticket buying and selling. He stressed the importance of consumer protection, stating that they are doing what they can to ensure tickets are sold through local resellers subject to provincial consumer protection laws and not through third-party offshore vendors.

The Manitoba government’s Reducing Red Tape and Improving Services Act includes several changes to modernize ticket reselling rules, such as the repeal of the prohibition on reselling tickets at a markup under the Amusements Act. The Act will also allow Manitoba companies to provide secondary ticket services in the province, thereby ensuring that Manitobans are not forced to use out-of-province firms. The Act also includes changes to several other regulations, such as allowing planning notices to be sent electronically, updating the Teacher Pensions Act, and more.

At the 2022 Grammy red carpet, she posed for photos with an Every Child Matters flag, paying homage to Indigenous children who were taken from their homes to attend residential schools.

This year, Head wanted to “do something fun” at the Grammy Awards. After she stumbled upon a Winnipeg Jets flag during a shopping trip, she knew it would be the perfect accessory to wear with her floor-length black dress, vibrant Indigenous-Canadian designed statement earrings, and red pumps. She is a huge fan of the Winnipeg Jets and tries to attend a game whenever she visits the city.Winnipeg

The Grammys were full of incredible moments for Head, with Sam Smith and Kim Petras’ performance and Grammy win being a high point. After the ceremony, she rubbed shoulders with rock royalty at the after party, including Robert Trujillo, the bass player from Metallica, and Flo Rida and his band, who provided the entertainment. Being in a room with other artists and musicians was a great experience for Head, and she felt inspired by the energy in the room.

In conclusion, Rhonda Head used the 2023 Grammy Awards as an opportunity to represent her province, her Indigenous heritage, and her love of the Winnipeg Jets. She brought a touch of hometown pride to the biggest night in music and was inspired by the energy and talent in the roomWinnipeg

Students in London partying

London Party City

Thousands of students and partiers gather along Broughdale Avenue to celebrate 2019’s unsanctioned Fake Homecoming

Uber lists London, Ontario the number one party city in Canada.

It may not surprise that London, Ontario tops the list of Uber’s top 10 party cities in Canada.

Boasting one of Canada’s busiest party schools (Western University), the ride-sharing app based the list on rides between 10 P.M. and 2 A.M., with the Forest City topping out Toronto and Kitchener-Waterloo.

Uber’s Top 10 Partying Cities in Canada:

1. London
2. Toronto
3. Kitchener-Waterloo
4. Kingston
5. Saskatoon
6. Vancouver
7. Winnipeg
8. Regina
9. Edmonton
10. Ottawa

With nightlife re-surging as COVID-19 restrictions disappear, Uber compiled its first Nightlife Index from data collected between September 2021 and September 2022.

Drawing from Uber Rides and Uber Eats data, the app shared insights highlighting the top partying nights of the year, the most unexpected next-morning food orders, and the top meal deliveries across the country.

Uber’s Nightlife Index lists London as Canada’s top party city

Plus, according to the index, London is the country’s top party city, and Londoners also stay out partying the latest, with most rides recorded between 2 A.M. and 4 A.M. But it’s about getting home safe that matters.

“As we turn the corner on the pandemic and we are going out again with family and friends, we want to remind you not to drive impaired,” said Dawn Regan, Chief Operating Officer for MADD Canada (Mothers Against Drunk Driving. “Plan ahead, call a friend, have a designated driver, stay overnight, find a ride with the Uber app, or take transit to get home safely.

The Nightlife Index returned once Western hosted its first in-person homecoming since 2019. Nearly 7,000 people gathered on Broughdale Avenue on Sept. 24.

The index explains how important it is for anyone that’s gone out, and may have had a drink or two, has decided to take a ride home safely,” said London Mayor Ed Holder. “I think that’s an incredibly important statistic. In fact, I would rank London as the most responsible city in Canada.

And if the last few years have taught us anything, it’s that everyone’s missed reconnecting with our family and friends, and if one thing is true about Canadians, it’s that they know how to have fun in the rain, shine, or snow.

Justin Bieber and Tim Hortons team up for “Biebs Brew”

Justin Bieber and Tim Hortons team up for “Biebs Brew”

Justin Bieber Tim hortons Canada

Following the success of the Timbiebs that hit local Timmies earlier this year, the Canadian-born pop-star and the coffee giant have partnered once again for  a Justin Bieber and Tim Hortons collab “Biebs Brew”.

Revealed in an ad on Twitter, Justin Bieber is back with a co-created French Vanilla Cold Brew. From the beginning “Timbiebs was a huge success – truly beyond all of our expectations – and what made it so great was the authenticity of the partnership,” said Hope Bagozzi, Chief Marketing Officer for Tim Hortons.

Mark your calendars, as the drink will hit stores and drive-thrus just in time for summer on June 6. Timbiebs will also be back for the full Bieber x Tim Hortons experience.

Justin Bieber Tim hortons Canada

 

In product brainstorms with the Tims team for the second collab, Justin shared that he prefers his coffee on ice, which led to working on a new flavour of Tim Hortons Cold Brew, which is made with 100 per cent ethically sourced premium Arabica beans and is slowly cold steeped for 16 hours to enhance the bold and smooth flavour.

Also inspired by a slight sweet tooth and his love for hints of delicious vanilla flavouring in his coffee, Justin and our beverage innovation team developed a creamy French Vanilla flavour to go with our Cold Brew. Biebs Brew is the perfect blend of those two beloved Tims flavours.

Justin Bieber Tim hortons Canada

“We couldn’t stop at Timbiebs, we needed a Biebs Brew too. And we are bringing both to Tims next month,” said Justin. “Doing a Tim Hortons collab had always been a dream of mine. I grew up on Tim Hortons and it’s always been something close to my heart.”

All three Timbiebs flavours – Chocolate White Fudge, Sour Cream Chocolate Chip, and Birthday Cake Waffle flavours – will return to Tims restaurants in Canada and the United States along with Biebs Brew on June 6.

“The Ellen DeGeneres Show” has ended, closing a chapter in daytime television.

“The Ellen DeGeneres Show” has ended, closing a chapter in daytime television.

“The Ellen DeGeneres Show” has ended

“The Ellen DeGeneres Show” has ended. The Ellen Show debuted in 2003, breaking ground as one of the first daytime talk shows to feature an openly gay host, reaching millions of viewers in their homes every day and normalizing LGBTQ representation.

Now an A-list celebrity, Ellen started off as a stand-up comedian.

 “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” has ended

Her trademark “be kind to one another” message during every show, came to dominate the daytime TV genre. However, her legacy was cracked as  cringey and out-of-touch moments did not adapt with the wave of what is acceptable.

“The Ellen Degeneres show” has ended but Ellen’s kind reputation really began to dim March 2020, when comedian Kevin Porter posted a viral tweet asking people for “the most insane stories you’ve heard about Ellen being mean” in exchange for him donating money to the LA Regional Food Bank. The response was overwhelming.

Allegations of a toxic workplace culture was exaggerated in July 2020, when BuzzFeed News published a series of investigations of the workplace environment of the Emmy-winning show. Dozens of former employees who spoke to Buzzfeed, said they endured racist comments from managers, were fired for taking time off for family emergencies, and worked in a culture of fear and intimidation.

“The Ellen DeGeneres Show” has ended

Despite the allegations, the show continued with declined ratings but is now ending on its 19th season.

Leading up to the finale, guests like Oprah Winfrey, Bruno Mars, Khloé Kardashian and more have come to say goodbye. The final goodbye episode, will feature Ellen’s first guest on the show, Jennifer Aniston, on May 26th.

She then shared one last dance with her DJ, Stephen Boss aka tWitch, before the pair took a seat onstage. Ellen’s first final guests included longtime pal Jennifer AnistonBillie Eilish and Pink.

Ellen closed out the show by thanking her staff, notably executive producers Mary Connelly and Andy Lassner, as well as her longtime chief of staff, Craig Peralta, before addressing her devoted audience.

Lifetime announces movie of infamous murder of Gabby Petito

Lifetime announces movie of infamous murder of Gabby Petito

The heartbreaking disappearance and tragic murder of Gabby Petito will be covered in a new Lifetime movie.

Petito’s body was found Sept. 19, 2021 at a campground near Grand Teton National Park in northwestern Wyoming. A coroner determined she’d died about three weeks earlier of “blunt-force injuries to the head and neck, with manual strangulation.

The rising social media star was on a cross-country van trip with her fiancé, Brian Laundrie, when she disappeared in late August. Laundrie became the first suspect in the investigation.

The Lifetime movie is tentatively titled The Gabby Petito Story and will mark the directorial debut of Thora Birch. Birch will also play Petito’s mother, Nichole Schmidt, in the film.

Gabby Petito

 

Gabby’s story is just one of many as a larger public affairs initiative by the Lifetime network to Stop Violence Against Women. “As a trusted destination for women, Lifetime will create a new PSA to debut as part of the movie’s roll out, driving to the important work of the network’s coalition of partners to provide resources for women,” the network said.

Lifetime promised they are “also in development on several movies surrounding violence against women who may not have had the same media attention as Gabby Petito”.

The film will be written by Gregory Small and Richard Blaney, who previously wrote the Lifetime film “Jodi Arias: Dirty Little Secret” and worked on the series “The Lizzie Borden Chronicles.”

Other casting will be announced later.

The network, well known for its movies about women in danger, said it is developing several projects about violence against women whose cases did not receive the same media attention.

Production on the film is set to begin in Utah this summer with a premiere set for later this year.

Mountain Dew launches Flamin

Yep… you read that right. Flamin’ Hot Mountain Dew. The trend of flaming hot continues to grow and is now available in liquid form. Mountain Dew rolled out the flavour across the US after a successful limited online release last year.

The drink has also been named the official drink of Hell, Michigan.

Mountain Dew launches Flamin

Mountain Dew is even planning a big bash in Hell, Michigan, on April 28th. The event features DJ Pauly D, cast member of MTV reality show “Jersey Shore,” and a four-course meal prepared by rapper/chef Action Bronson.

Hell is an unincorporated community in Livingston County in Michigan, best known for its shameless embrace of its name. Individuals can also sign up to be Hell’s unofficial mayor of the day.

Mtn Dew, the citrusy soft drink that stands out from the lemon-and-lime crowd by going caffeinated, has its fervent fans. So, too, do the more recently introduced Flamin’ Hot style of Cheetos corn snacks, which ditch the classic cheesy powder for a spicy, bright red coating. Why not mix them together and see who your true fans are?

Today, PepsiCo and its subsidiary Frito-Lay announced a crossover that the inventor of the phrase “corporate synergy” could never have imagined. Starting August 31, Flamin’ Hot Mtn Dew will go on sale at one place only: The Dew Store. Yes, that’s the online marketplace where Dew doers can buy Hawaiian shirts and skate decks, among other branded products.

 

Mountain Dew launches Flamin

The flavour of the drink is described as spicy meets sweets and is noted to have the classic dew flavour with bursts of heat an lime flavouring. It is only available in the US at the moment.

If Drink art your thing Flamin’ Hot Cheetos ice cream also hit Marble Slab Creameries this summer. And if spice isn’t the kind of kick you’re looking for in your Mtn Dew, the soda brand is officially releasing alcoholic Hard Mtn Dew flavors next year.
