By The Canadian Press OTTAWA – U.S. President Barack Obama is passing a diplomatic torch of sorts to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in his historic address
Tonight attended the Calgary Premiere screening of the documentary “Swift Current”, a powerful conversation of child sexual abuse in organized hockey in Canada. Sheldon Kennedy went on to star in the NHL for three teams but carried the terrible memories and trauma of sexual abuse by Graham James, a Junior hockey coach while playing for the Swift Current Broncos as a teenager. http://www.swiftcurrentdoc.com/
Now, Sheldon Kennedy is a strong vocal advocate for standing up for children who are being abused, giving them a voice and inspiring people around the world to take action to stop child sexual abuse and get services and resources to children traumatized by child sexual abuse.

Time lapse video footage from Edmonton Journal’s Twitter feed of forest fire hitting city limits of Fort McMurray Alberta.
Cars, trucks and buses can be seen on the side of the highway in different places, many of them abandoned due to heavy forest fire smoke entering the engines and causing them to stall with the lack of air supply, or the drivers were so overcome with smoke inhalation they had to leave their vehicles for safety.
