These were CTVNews.ca's stories that dominated the headlines in 2020 – and it's not just COVID-19 – CTV News

Published

What a year it has been! Even though 2020 has made its mark in the history books, plenty of people will be trying to forget about it.

At the end of each year, CTVNews.ca crunches the numbers to see which stories our readers clicked on the most. While the COVID-19 pandemic dominated many of our headlines, many other topics caught the eye of our readers.

JANUARY

Tragedy struck on Jan. 8 when 57 Canadians, as well as approximately 80 others travelling to Canada, were killed when Ukraine International Airlines Flight 752 was shot down by Iran shortly after takeoff from Tehran Imam Khomeini Airport. In a later statement, the cause of the crash was “human error,” as the commercial flight was mistaken for a “hostile plane”

A nuclear alert was erroneously sent out to all Ontario residents on Jan. 12during a training exercise at the Pickering Nuclear Generating Station.

On Jan. 26, the sporting world was dealt a blow when basketball legend Kobe Bryant, along with his 13-year-old daughter Gianna and seven others, died in a helicopter crash in California.

Our most-read story in January involved Hussien Mehaidli, from B.C. who said he was fired from a job because he complained on Twitter about receiving a $6 bottle of barbecue sauce as a holiday gift – the story had an incredible reaction online, attracting more than 10,000 interactions on Facebook.

National pipeline protests started across the country on Jan, 7 through March, prompted after RCMP enforced an injunction against Wet’suwet’en hereditary chiefs and their supporters, who were blocking construction of the Coastal GasLink natural gas pipeline, a key part of the $40-billion LNG Canada export project. The blockades across the country caused Via Rail to cancel all services on CN tracks in Canada.

A couple from Victoria, B.C., who were out for a New Year’s Day picnic and a hike were treated to the surprise of a lifetime when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle helped them take a photograph.

It may feel like a long time ago but Jan. 25 was the date Canada’s first ‘presumptive positive’ case of COVID-19 was found in Ontario – a Toronto man who had recently travelled to Wuhan, China.

FEBRUARY

It has undoubtedly been a tough year for retail, among many of other sectors, but our updated list of some of the major chains in Canada closing all their doors, shuttering their locations or that have been hit by bankruptcy in the past two years, has been one of the most-read articles of 2020.

Meanwhile, in health news, Health Canada expanded a national recall for certain types of diabetes medications due to concerns that an impurity in the prescription drugs could be linked to cancer. There were also dengue fever concerns in the Caribbean after this 26-year-old Canadian died. A story we published on Feb. 13 speaking to survivors of the disease said travellers are not being warned.

In good news, it was a month to remember for a 22-year-old Quebec grocery store worker Gregory Mathieu, who won an incredible $70-million Lotto Max jackpot. The story was shared 6,500 times on Facebook and received 23,000 likes.

Finally, the first reports that new Ontario licence plates are unreadable at night became known. More than 400,000 people read that story and, three months later, the province decided to not move forward with the blue licence plate design.

MARCH

As COVID-19 started to spread through Canada and infected hundreds of people, the widow of a 51-year-old Ontario man who died of the disease urged Canadians to listen to health officials. This heart-wrenching story struck a chord with readers.

The editorial team at CTVNews.ca launched a daily live blog for the latest updates on the global coronavirus outbreak. You can still follow all the latest COVID-19 news here. We also launched our daily tracker so readers could track every case of COVID-19 in Canada – this interactive graphic has become a staple piece of content for Canadians in 2020.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s decision to announce international flight restrictions and introduce a U.S.-Canada border closure was huge news in March, as was the news that Canadian scientists had made a COVID-19 research breakthrough, isolating virus.

Stories of people cashing in during the pandemic came to light, including this Vancouver couple who resold $100K of cleaning products purchased at Costco.

As some people figured out how they could make money during the early stages of the pandemic, many more were concerned about how they could pay bills amid widespread lay-offs. Our article explaining the Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB), and how you could apply.

APRIL

On the night of April 18, killer Gabriel Wortman, dressed as a Mountie and driving a vehicle made to look like an RCMP cruiser, set fire to several homes and murdered 13 people in Portapique, N.S. in what became Canada’s worst mass shooting in history.

Nova Scotia mass shooting

News from one of the prime minister’s daily briefings outside Rideau Cottage was April’s most-read story. It was his announcement that part-time and seasonal workers were eligible to claim the $2,000 Canada Emergency Response Benefit.

PEE acquisition and mask wars began as manufacturing giant 3M says the White House requested it cease exports of U.S.-made N95 face masks to Canada.

Questions around COVID-19 lockdown rules began to surface with this query – Can I go for a drive during a global pandemic? – among the most-read in April. In other COVID news, pediatricians warned about ‘COVID toes’ in children infected with the virus.

MAY

Protests across Canada begin in solidarity with Americans protesting the death of George Floyd on May 25, and against police issues and systemic racism in Canada.

Walk for Justice

Just when you thought 2020 could not get any worse, we then had giant hornets with freakish eyes and a venomous sting to add to the year’s list of worries. Dubbed ‘murder hornets,’ they were first spotted in the U.S. and then later found in parts of B.C.

In a bid to boost morale during the pandemic, the Canadian Forces Snowbirds team performed a cross-country tour. However, it ended in tragedy on May 17 when one member of the team, later named as Capt. Jennifer Casey, died, after a plane crashed in Kamloops, B.C.

After spending 17 years underground, millions of cicadas were also said to be emergingin parts of the United States and Canada.

JUNE

A story suggesting Canadians who work from home permanentlyshould expect salary changes got CTVNews.ca readers talking.

A mother and her three young daughters killed in a horrific crashin Brampton, Ont. The trial of 20-year-old Brady Robertson, who is charged with four counts of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing death and four counts of impaired driving, is set to be heard in July 2021.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s 21 seconds of silence to a question about U.S. President Donald Trump’s response to racial unrest made the headlines on June 2 and was one of our most-read Don Martin columns of the year.

 

JULY

There were reports from police that two Americans had been fined for breaking Canada’s COVID-19 quarantine rules after being spotted multiple times in an Ontario town, as Canadians push back as U.S. Congress pressures Canada to reopen shared border

The ruthlessness of COVID was laid bare in a story from Florida after a father was hospitalized with COVID-19 after his son met friends against family’s wishes.

As the warmer weather hit, stories of people gathering in large numbers at beaches in B.C. and Ontario came to light, including this one from Canada Day at Wasaga Beach where ‘human behaviour was at its worst’.

Across the border, COVID-19 cases continued to soar as the U.S. experienced much less restrictions, highlighted by the Niagara Falls tour boats, which became a symbol of COVID-19 contrast.

AUGUST

U.S. President Donald Trump’s younger brother, Robert Trump, a businessman known for an even keel that seemed almost incompatible with the family name, died after being hospitalized in New York. He was 71.

As the 2020 U.S. presidential continues to take shape, American historian Allan Lichtman made an early prediction. He has correctly predicted every U.S. presidential election winner since 1984, and this year he forecasted Democratic nominee Joe Biden would be the next president – which we now know to be true.

In other news, popular pasta sauce brand Ragu announced it was no longer selling products in Canada and NASA scientists said a magnetic anomaly above our planet is going to split in half.          

SEPTEMBER

As the pandemic continued to radically alter how Canadians spent their money, experts said a second wave of COVID-19 would likely see consumers plagued by shortages — but this time stemming from “lifestyle changes” rather than panic buying such as stationary bicycles and patio heaters.

The distraught mother of a two-year-old girl who died in her sleep three days after being told by doctors her daughter only had the flu says she feels the health-care system failed her.

The news which got Canadians talking what U.S. President Donald Trump saying that Canada wants to see the Canada-U.S. border reopened on Sept. 18, despite the Canadian federal government saying it would make the decision based on public health advice.

In an exclusive interview with CTV National News’ Lisa LaFlamme on Sept. 9, WE Charity announced it was selling off its assets, eliminating staff and winding down operations in Canada months after becoming embroiled in a political scandal that has triggered investigations by the federal ethics watchdog.

Craig and Marc Kielburger

OCTOBER

As the COVID-19 restrictions continued, and people looked for answers and solutions, this story, which suggested more than 80 per cent of hospitalized COVID-19 patients had vitamin D deficiency grabbed the headlines.

In hyperlocal news, a story about two Ontario homebuyers who got a shock after the hot tub was removed before closing was shared hundreds of times on Facebook.

Trudeau’s minority government survived a confidence vote 180 to 146, in the House of Commons to defeat a motion to create a new committee to probe alleged Liberal corruption involving the government’s COVID-19 spending, allegations of conflicts of interest, and the WE Charity controversy. 

Netflix Canada increased prices for its monthly standard, premium plans and, as fall arrived, Canadians were urged to ‘leave the leaves’ alone, as experts say it’s good for the environment. Canada also announced it was banning single-use plastic bags, straws, cutlery and other items by the end of 2021. 

A lawsuit from a B.C. man who thought Canada Dry ginger ale had medicinal properties settled for $200K.

NOVEMBER

The month was dominated by the U.S. presidential election, as CTVNews.ca produced round-the-clock coverage with reporters based in Pennsylvania, Washington D.C., and Los Angeles capturing every twist and turn. Our live blog was the most-read piece of content, followed by Donald Trump’s statement following the election result.

When Trump’s team confused its press conference location at ‘Four Seasons’ with a similarly-named landscaping business nearby, it prompted a huge reaction online.

FOUR SEASONS TOTAL LANDSCAPING

The Canadian dollar hit its strongest level in more than two years and a first-of-its-kind intersection in P.E.I. was built – but it required 11 instructional videos for drivers.

DECEMBER

Many in Ontario ended the year how they’d spent most of it – living under COVID-19 restrictions – as health officials announced a province-wide lockdown from December 26.

Some Canadians who applied for the Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB) were being asked to repay the entire sum by Dec. 31 because of a tweak in the self-employed income wording to “net” self-employment income that was never mentioned in the original application.

As the rollout of COVID-19 vaccines started, one question many have is: ‘What will I feel like after I take a vaccine?’ Canada first approved thePfizer-BioNTech shot and then approved the Moderna vaccine.

vaccine

Scientists around the world reacted to news of a mutant strain of COVID-19. First identified in the U.K., and then many other countries, flights were suspended between Britain and Canada while work to understand its threat took place. Canada’s first cases of the new variant were a couple in Durham, Ontario, identified on December 26. More cases in Ottawa and Vancouver Island were also identified.

How COVID-19 has changed daily life a year after Canada’s first case – CityNews Toronto

Published

 on


On Jan. 25, 2020, Canadians were still living their lives like they always had: commuting to the office, visiting friends, dining out, hugging loved ones, vacationing. But the announcement that day of Canada’s first COVID-19 case set in motion a chain of events that would soon change everything.

By March, with cases climbing, health officials began implementing a series of measures that would fundamentally alter how many Canadians live. Lockdowns and calls for physical distancing led to companies shifting to work from home, travel restrictions, mask-wearing rules, cancellation of major events, and video meetings replacing in-person interactions as people were asked to avoid seeing anyone, even loved ones.

Jack Jedwab, the president of the Association for Canadian Studies, says the biggest change to Canadians’ daily lives has been the isolation from friends, family and co-workers.

“I think at the root of a lot of that change is these limits on our mobility, which take different forms, whether it’s interacting with family and friends, or seeing people that we’re accustomed to seeing in our daily lives in person as opposed to on screens,” he said.

An online survey conducted for Jedwab’s group in September found that over 90 per cent of the 1,500 people polled said COVID-19 had changed their lives, with most citing the inability to see family and friends as the biggest factors.

While few Canadians have been untouched by the pandemic, Jedwab says women, newcomers to Canada and people who were already economically and socially vulnerable appear to have been among the most deeply affected, particularly by job losses.

Here’s a look at how COVID-19 has changed daily life for some Canadians of different groups:

Seniors

For Bill VanGorder, a retired 78-year-old from Halifax, the pandemic put a temporary halt on his active social life and his favourite pastimes of volunteering in the local theatre and music scenes.

“Theatre people, as you may know, are people who love to hug, and not being able to hug in these times probably has been one of the most difficult things,” he said in a phone interview.

He considers himself lucky, because at least he and his wife Esther have each other, unlike many of his single friends who are completely isolated. Many older people, who are more at risk of severe complications from COVID-19, are struggling to stay connected with family or finding people to help them with household tasks.

VanGorder, who works with the Canadian Association of Retired Persons, also believes unclear government messaging, particularly on when older adults will get access to the vaccine, is “creating huge anxiety and mistrust in the system,” among already-nervous seniors.

But while the pandemic has been hard, he says there have also been silver linings. He and many of his friends have been learning to use platforms such as Zoom and FaceTime, which help seniors stay in touch with relatives and connect with their communities.

“We think the positive thing is that, of course, this knowledge will continue after COVID and will be a real step forward, so that older adults can feel more involved in everything that’s going on around them,” he said.

The first thing he’ll do when things get back to normal is to hug his grandchildren and theatre friends, he said.

University students

As classes have moved online, many students have had to adapt to living and studying in small spaces and being isolated from friends and campus life at a stage when forging lifelong friendships and social networks can be crucial.

Small living quarters, the inability to travel home, financial fears and uncertainties about the job market have contributed to a “greater sense of isolation” for many students, according to Bryn de Chastelain, an Ontario resident studying at St. Mary’s University in Halifax and the chair of the Canadian Alliance of Student Associations.

While he believes schools have done their best to support students, de Chastelain says many students have seen their mental health suffer.

“A number of students are really struggling with having to learn from home and learn online, and I think that a number of strategies that students are used to taking up are very difficult to replicate in the online environment,” he said.

Parents

Schools across the country were shut down for several months in the spring, ushering in a challenging time for parents who were suddenly forced to juggle full-time child care, work and keeping their families safe.

The reopening of schools in the fall brought different challenges depending on each province’s COVID-19 situation and approach. In Ontario, some parents opted for full-time online learning, while others were forced into it when Premier Doug Ford chose to extend the winter break. In Quebec, which doesn’t allow a remote option for most students, some reluctant parents had no choice but to send their children back to class.

“I think uncertainty, not only for kids but for everything — work, life relationships and everything — that has certainly been the theme of COVID,” said Doug Liberman, a Montreal-area father of two.

Liberman said the biggest challenge has been trying to balance the health and safety of his family with keeping his food manufacturing business going and maintaining a sense of normalcy for his two girls, ages 10 and 12.

For his family, that has meant trying to spend time outside but also accepting more screen time, and ultimately, taking things day-by-day.

“I certainly think that we certainly don’t have the answer, and I think we’ve done as best as we could, like everybody else has,” he said.

Military to support vaccination efforts in northern Ontario Indigenous communities – Red Deer Advocate

Published

 on


TORONTO — The Canadian military is set to help with COVID-19 vaccine distribution in northern Ontario, as officials investigate the death of a teenager who had the virus and worked at a long-term care home in the province’s southwest.

Federal Public Safety Minister Bill Blair tweeted Sunday that the Canadian Armed Forces will support vaccine efforts in 32 communities of the Nishnawbe Aski Nation. The move came after a request from the province for assistance in getting vaccine to First Nations communities, he wrote.

“Our government will always be there to support the fight against #COVID19,” he wrote on Twitter.

The Nishnawbe Aski Nation, whose territory comprises 49 remote communities in northwestern Ontario, did not immediately comment on the pending deployment.

Meanwhile, officials in Middlesex-London said Sunday that a male teen who worked in a long-term care facility in the region was among the three deaths reported on the area’s COVID-19 case site earlier in the weekend.

Dr. Alexander Summers, associate medical officer of health for the Middlesex-London Health Unit, said he couldn’t provide the exact age or any other details about the teen.

But he said the person was a staff member of the long-term care home who was recently diagnosed with COVID-19 and died earlier in the week.

“Through the course of our investigation, the potential exposures could be many, but certainly the long-term care home is a potential exposure for this individual,” Summers said in an interview.

Summers said to his knowledge, the teen was not hospitalized with COVID-19.

He is the youngest person to have died after contracting the virus in the county, Summers said, noting the majority of deaths they’ve seen among COVID-19 patients have been in an older demographic.

“It can have severe impacts on people of all ages and this story and this unfortunate and tragic situation as a reminder of that,” Summers said.

“Certainly, this is a very rare occurrence. It’s a rare event. And the investigation continues as to understanding what exactly might have happened. However, regardless, it’s a sad day.”

The Roberta Place Retirement Lodge long-term care home in Barrie, Ont., north of Toronto, also made headlines over the weekend after health officials said a U.K. variant of COVID-19 was behind a deadly outbreak there.

On Sunday, the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit said it had learned of an additional individual with the U.K. variant within the region.

The unit said that individual had close contact with a person who is also part of a COVID-19 outbreak at Bradford Valley Care Community, a long-term care home in Bradford West Gwillimbury, south of Barrie.

Officials are now investigating whether that outbreak is also due to the U.K. variant.

Ontario reported 2,417 new cases of COVID-19 and 50 more deaths related to the virus on Sunday.

The numbers were slightly up from Saturday’s 2,359 cases, though deaths declined by two from previous figures.

Health Minister Christine Elliott said there were 785 new cases in Toronto, 404 in Peel Region, 215 in York Region and 121 in Niagara.

Over 48,900 tests had been completed in Ontario over the past 24 hours.

The province reported that 4,427 doses of a COVID-19 vaccine were administered since the province’s last report, and 1,436 are hospitalized with the virus.

A total of 280,573 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine have been administered in Ontario so far.

Since the pandemic began, there have been 255,002 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Ontario. Of those, 225,046 have recovered and 5,803 people have died.

On Monday, the province plans to issue the results of a weekend-long expansion of its “inspection blitz” of big-box stores to ensure they were following COVID-19 guidelines.

The workplace inspections, which started in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton areas last weekend, stretched out to Ottawa, Windsor, Niagara and Durham regions.

Preliminary figures from Saturday showed inspectors went into 310 big-box stores and issued 34 tickets and 53 orders, Labour Minister Monte McNaughton said Sunday.

Overall, inspectors found the stores were only at “64 per cent compliance, which the minister said wasn’t good enough.

“The three big issues that we’re finding this weekend: masking protocols aren’t being followed, in some cases; the physical distancing is still an issue in some stores; and this weekend we found that some of these big-box stores don’t have a safety plan that’s required of them to prevent COVID-19 from coming into the workplace,” McNaughton said in an interview.

“Every business should know at this point in the pandemic what’s expected of them.”

This report by The Canadian Press was first published Jan. 24, 2021.
