WestJet proactively cancels flights across Canada ahead of stormy weather, a pair of Ukrainian teens find safety with an Ottawa couple, and a refugee charity says it’s partnering with the feds to resettle LGBTQ2S+ Afghans. Here’s what you need to know to start your day.
1. Flight cancellations: WestJet proactively cancels flights at airports in British Columbia, Ontario, and Quebec as storm systems bore down on the regions, deepening a cascade of disruptions that have sent travellers scrambling.
2. ‘We feel safe’: Best friends Viktoriia Tipukhoval, 17, and Artur Halanishyn, 18, from Ukraine, are the only members of their respective families who managed to start a life in Canada – and it’s largely because of one Ontario couple who volunteered to open their doors.
3. Path to safety: Rainbow Railroad, a charity that helps LGBTQ2S+ refugees find a safe home, says they are partnering with the Canadian government in order to resettle approximately 600 Afghans.
