Five things you need to know

1. India issues travel advisory for citizens living in Canada

The Indian government is urging its citizens and students living in Canada to be cautious amid what it calls “growing anti-India activities.” A travel advisory issued Wednesday described the situation in Canada as “growing anti-India activities and politically-condoned hate crimes and criminal violence."

2. Bijou Phillips files for divorce from Danny Masterson after rape convictions

Bijou Phillips has filed for divorce from Danny Masterson. Phillips’ decision comes after Masterson was sentenced to 30 years to life in prison for two rape convictions. The couple has been together for 12 years and they have a nine-year-old daughter together.

3. PEI woman flies to New York to track down her lost luggage

Lacey Koughan took matters into her own hands after she spent a week trying to get answers from Flair Airlines about her lost luggage. The PEI woman knew exactly where the bag was at JFK Airport in New York, thanks to an AirTag, so she booked a flight there and found it herself. She says she hopes some of the extra costs will be covered by her traveller’s insurance, but has not yet filed a claim with the airline for compensation.

4. Canucks trade Tanner Pearson to Canadiens

Training camp is right around the corner and the Vancouver Canucks made a trade on Tuesday. The club sent winger Tanner Pearson to the Montreal Canadiens, along with a third-round pick, in exchange for goaltender Casey DeSmith. The move helps Vancouver clear some much-needed cap space and gives the team a legitimate NHL-calibre backup goalie behind Thatcher Demko.

5. Firefighters help grocery-delivery robot get past hoses

Robots that deliver groceries have become more and more common in the UK, but there are obviously some kinks to be worked out still. The other night, one of those robots became stuck as it stumbled upon the scene of an active fire. The firefighters that weren’t actioning the blaze jumped into action, picking up the robot, carrying it over their hoses and sending it on its way.
