“The mall has to become more interesting,” said Eric Foster, a real estate consultant who helped develop the large, mixed-use DIX30 shopping complex on Montreal’s south shore. Its amenities include 65 restaurants, food shopping, an indoor soccer venue and a training centre for the Montreal Canadiens.

The Independent Investigation Unit of Manitoba has launched two separate investigations after allegations two people were injured while being arrested by Winnipeg police officers.
A man claimed his arm was sprained or dislocated while he was being arrested on February 7, 2016. He visited the Health Sciences Centre after his arrest and has been off work since then due to the injury. The Winnipeg Police Service had been investigating, but the IIU has taken over after determining the incident is the result of a serious injury.
