globalnews.ca — Parks Canada is out with a warning about avalanches in the coming days.

Officials are advising people to avoid all avalanche terrain as there is a significant weak layer deep in the snowpack that is active and they expect widespread avalanche activity.
globalnews.ca — Fans at next Sunday’s Western Final in Calgary will have a chance to take home some real cash. The pot for the 50/50 at the game will be a guaranteed minimum of $100,000. That amount will likely grow with every ticket sold, and the winner will take home half of the final total. Tickets can be bought until halftime at the game. Fifty per cent of the funds will go towards supporting amateur football through the Stampeders Foundation.
