Simon Karlsson Adjei, a Swedish striker with Ghanaian roots, is York 9 FC’s first international signing. The 25-year-old has ties to York 9 head coach Jim Brennan, having played for him with Aurora FC in League 1 Ontario. Adjei had 19 goals in 19 games in 2016 to rank second in the league. “You just knew he’s got to go back to Europe. Obviously I kept a tab on him. We knew the CPL was coming 15

November 28, 2018 8:19 PM Six-year-old interrupts Vatican ceremony — and Pope Francis doesn’t mind

“This child cannot speak. He is mute. But he can communicate,” Francis said in Spanish to the crowd of pilgrims in the audience, whom came to hear clerical leaders give a catechism lesson in various languages. “And he has something that got me thinking: He is free.

November 28, 2018 3:26 PM Raptors literally got in the zone in their latest victory

I’m not exactly sure how many possessions the Raptors played a zone defence in that second half but it was far, far, far more than usual and it worked entirely to their benefit. Good teams can quickly figure out how to beat zones and many have so many good passers the only reason to play the trick defence is to gain the element of surprise every now and then. But as Nick Nurse 13

November 27, 2018 10:49 PM Scarborough man found not criminally responsible for killing his mother, who struggled for years with his schizophrenia

After Christopher’s father Donald died from a stroke in 2007, it was just the two of them living in the bungalow in Scarborough’s Port Union neighbourhood. Crown prosecutor Dimitra Tsagaris told a Toronto court Tuesday they were only people in each other’s lives. In a rare finding Tuesday, Christopher Hardie, 40, was ruled not criminally responsible 18

November 22, 2018 8:56 PM Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is extra sweet, rarely bitter

According to O’Brien, the touring version that’s now at the Princess of Wales Theatre with Mirvish Productions is even brighter, happier and more energetic than its predecessor, which closed on Broadway after less than a year. O’Brien’s production is certainly sweet, with a colour palette as intense as a sourball (set and costume design by Nicholas Skilbeck) 18

November 21, 2018 7:17 PM What we know and don’t know about the scandal at St. Michael’s College School — and what we can’t report

The contents of the washroom video: The 49-second video, also viewed by the Star, shows a teen boy in his underwear placed in a large sink by other boys who splash water on him and slap him. The boy in the sink appears not to be physically injured in the incident. He is not the same boy as the alleged victim in the locker room video. That both videos 13

November 12, 2018 6:56 PM Why the Thanksgiving TV episode is the very best kind of holiday special

There comes a time in the life of every major TV show when writers must give thanks for their show’s longevity and write a Thanksgiving episode. The Thanksgiving TV episode is a distinctly American TV tradition for a distinctly American holiday (it falls on Nov. 22 this year; Canadians, of course, celebrate Thanksgiving a month earlier). It’s not to be confused 23

November 11, 2018 2:24 PM California gunman who killed 12 died from self-inflicted gunshot

Based on time stamps, investigators say, Long posted to Instagram during the attack. The post involved his mental state and whether people would believe he was sane. His social media accounts have been taken down but a law enforcement official said Long posted about his mental state and whether people would believe he was sane. The official, who was briefed 21

October 24, 2018 4:55 PM In both Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and Charmed, the witches are woke

In the three episodes I’ve seen, this series both serves as a rallying cry — women unite to fight! — and holds a mirror to the current culture. Harvey is the ideal model of a respectful boyfriend. Sabrina’s fight with Satan is rife with #MeToo overtones: “A lot of people are facing their fears right now, fighting battles they know they’re not going to win,” she says. And when she says, “The Dark Lord’s 25
