Too early to talk charges in fatal Humboldt Broncos bus crash, police say

Creeden Martell · CBC News

Police in Saskatchewan say it's too early to say whether charges will be laid in the fatal crash involving a semi-truck and the Humboldt Broncos junior hockey team that left 16 people dead.

"It's too early to comment on any criminal involvement," RCMP assistant commissioner Curtis Zablocki said at a news conference Thursday.

He also said investigators are still looking into why the truck was in the intersection.

5 reasons why gas prices are set to go up in Canada — and fast

Pete Evans · CBC News

The price of filling up a tank of gas is a classic Canadian irritation. But a confluence of factors may soon make that process even more gob-smacking than usual.

Here's a look at five reasons gas prices are soaring.

CBC News

Canada's inflation rate hit 2.3 per cent in the year up to March, the highest level since October 2014 as gas prices and just about everything else got more expensive. 

Statistics Canada reported Friday that seven of the eight components the data agency tracks rose in March. The lone exception was clothing and footwear, which got 0.1 per cent cheaper in the previous 12 months.

Gasoline prices were 17.1 per cent higher in March than they were a year earlier. Stripping gasoline out of the numbers, the country's overall inflation rate would have been 1.8 per cent.

One of the solar system’s early planets didn’t survive, but its diamonds are now on Earth

LOS ANGELES TIMES

Scientists have found the first hard evidence of a large and ancient protoplanet embedded in extraterrestrial diamonds that fell to Earth about 10 years ago.

To be clear, the diamonds did not fall to Earth on their own. Instead, they were discovered inside a meteorite that slammed into the atmosphere over the Nubian Desert in northeastern Sudan in October 2008.

And in case you are imagining large twinkling space gems, let’s also be clear that these diamonds are extremely tiny — the biggest are about the width of a human hair.
