IIHF World Hockey Championship
The US advanced to the quarter finals even with their 3-2 overtime loss to Slovakia already today – Slovakia would have qualified if the win came during regulation. The US grabbed a point for forcing overtime which gives them fourth place in Group B. Germany also advanced, so will both Canada and Finland. We’re just waiting to see who gets the top spot – both teams are unbeaten! At 2:33 PM Finland is up 2-0 in the second period.

Canada Road Safety Week
With Victoria Day long weekend ahead – both London Police and Ontario Provincial Police have increased their presence for Canada Road Safety week with a goal in mind to make Canadian roads the safest in the world by 2025
The focus is on the “Big 4 killers” on our roads:
- impaired operation by alcohol or drugs,
- failure or improper use of seatbelts,
- distracted driving,
- and aggressive driving.
According to OPP, 69 people died in distracted driving crashes last year. Be safe this weekend.
Fort McMurray Update & Fresh Radio Donation Drive
Thousands more are being evacuated from just north of Fort McMurray now with an Alberta Emergency alert issued just before 10pm last night – that evacuation order extends to just south of Fort MacKay now.
It’s been two weeks since the fires began their damage and our sister station 103.1 Fresh Radio is going to be doing a donation drive from 8am until 6pm tomorrow at that same corner where we were last week, King & Wellington, broadcasting live.
