Good evening to you.
We begin with the Red Chamber where Senators voted on Wednesday to extend their sitting hours beyond this week before they rise for the summer so they can hold final votes on two of the government’s priority bills. Senators will now sit next Monday and Tuesday with extended hours. Earlier this month, Government House leader Pablo Rodriguez presented those bills: the Budget Implementation Act (C-30), the conversion-therapy ban (C-6), the bill to modernize the Broadcasting Act (C-10), and the net-zero-emissions bill (C-12). Janet Silver reports on what to expect in the upper chamber.

Ottawa [Canada], June 24 (ANI): After China demanded an investigation into the discovery of the remains of indigenous children in Canada, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has lashed out at Beijing, stressing that there was a difference between the matter and the communist country's systemic abuse against ethnic minorities including Uyghurs.
According to Canadian state broadcaster CTV News, Trudeau on Tuesday said that Canada knows its relationship with indigenous people is broken but it has a Truth and Reconciliation Commission and is working to try and address the issues. On the other hand, China is not even willing to admit that there is a problem over the numerous human rights abuses against Uyghurs.

Elton John eagerly announced the final European and North American dates for his postponed 'Farewell, Yellow Brick Road' tour on Wednesday.
Sir John will conclude his touring career in early-2023, but not before making stops at stadiums across America next year, including a two-night stand at Dodgers Stadium commemorating his historic performance there in 1975.
"Hello, all you wonderful fans out there. I’m coming to you today with an announcement I’ve been working towards for, well, all my life: the shows that I announce today will be my
final tour dates ever in North America and Europe. I’m going to go out in the biggest possible way, performing at my very best, with the most spectacular production I’ve ever had, playing in places that have meant so much to me throughout my career. Whether it’s next summer in Frankfurt or at the legendary Dodger Stadium for the grand finale in the United States, I can’t wait to see you all on the road one last time. This has been an incredible tour so far, full of the most amazing highs, and I look forward to making more wonderful memories with you at these final shows.

VANCOUVER, Wash. — The adoptive parents of a 15-year-old Vancouver, Washington, boy who died from starvation in November had bail set at $1 million each during a court appearance in Clark County after being extradited from San Joaquin County earlier this month.
Felicia L. Adams, 52, and Jesse C. Franks, 56, appeared Monday in Superior Court on domestic violence charges of second-degree murder and homicide by abuse in Karreon Franks’ death, The Columbian reported.
In response to the charges being read, Franks said, “I don’t know why I’m being charged with all of this.”
Senior Deputy Prosecutor James Smith described the allegations as “extremely concerning” and said the evidence in the case is overwhelming. Smith said Adams and Franks are each facing a minimum 20-year prison sentence if convicted.

The owner of Point Roberts’ only grocery store says she will be forced to close next month if Canada and the U.S. don’t ease border restrictions.
Point Roberts, which sits south of Vancouver in the Lily Point Marine Reserve, is officially part of the U.S., but you have to go through Canada to gain access. The only other way would be a two-hour boat ride from Bellingham.
Ali Hayton, the owner of the Point Roberts International Marketplace, told KIRO Radio that she “just kind of lost it” when she found out the border closure was extended until at least July 21.
