There are five packages to bid on through the day on Dec. 6.

The night starts with welcome cocktails before cracking and sampling a 70-pound wheel of Parmigiano Reggiano. Then, dinner will be prepared by Iron Chef Canada competitor and Top Chef Canada’s Season 4 winner, Rene Rodriguez. The evening is hosted by chef Christian Mena of Sabor and celebrity server Kent Morrison from Global Edmonton. That package is available between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m.

WATCH BELOW: 630 CHED Santas Anonymous is gearing up to deliver gifts to 25,000 kids in the Edmonton area this year. The volunteers are amazing. Kendra Slugoski has one couple’s story about how helping the charity became their holiday tradition.






The final package is a dream for any Edmonton sports lover. Available during Inside Sports with Reid Wilkins, the winner will receive a pair of season tickets to the Edmonton Eskimos’ 2019 season, an autographed Mike Reilly jersey and the chance to visit Dave Campbell and Morley Scott in the broadcast booth during a game. The package also includes four tickets to the Edmonton Oilers vs. San Jose sharks game on Dec. 29 and two hockey pucks — one signed by Leon Draisaitl and the other by Oilers legend Ryan Smyth. Listeners can bid on that package from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m.

What might just be the most magical night ever is coming up for Montreal this year.

The Water Lantern Festival has announced that it will be gracing Mississauga with thousands of floating lanterns later this year, as part of a celebration that spans the entire world.

According to the festival’s official website, the event is a celebration of life with proceeds going towards charities and non-profit organizations within the area.

“Water Lantern Festival brings together individuals from all ages, backgrounds, and walks of life to join in one emotional and memorable night. At the Water Lantern Festival, we cherish these moments and will do our best to help you have a memorable experience that you’ll never forget as you witness the beauty of thousands of lanterns reflecting upon the water,” the website states.

The festival takes place throughout multiple cities around the world, with the Canadian cities of Quebec, Regina, Vancouver, Hamilton, Calgary, Ottawa, Mississauga, and, of course, Montreal taking part.

For the Calgary event, a date has been confirmed and tickets are already rolling out. Montreal shan’t be far behind, and you can click the Notify Me tab on the event’s site to be kept in the loop.

Expect an evening filled with food trucks, music, lantern designing and finally, a magical launch of the lanterns into the water as the sun goes down.

For our pals over in Calgary, their event includes a floating lantern, a commemorative drawstring bag, a marker, and a wristband. Expect something similar, if not the same, when more details float through about Montreal’s event.

Euthanasia order on hold for Montreal dog that attacked children

A pit bull dog that attacked four children and two adults in August 2018 in Montreal North will not be euthanized in the immediate future.

The euthanasia order has been temporarily suspended pending the appeal of a Quebec Superior Court decision.

On Tuesday, Judge Lukasz Granosik rejected a request to halt the euthanasia order issued by the Montreal North borough, which declared the animal a “dangerous dog.”

The City of Montreal has not changed its mind. This is only a delay before it proceeds with euthanizing the dog, a source told the Canadian Press.

Shotta, the one-year-old dog, was in the care of its owner’s acquaintance in August 2018. The dog attacked four children and two adults, causing serious injuries in separate incidents on the same day.

After the attacks, the dog was taken from the home and entrusted to the SPCA.

WATCH: Dog found dead in Angrignon Park

The Road to Home Rescue Support, an American shelter, asked the court if it could take in the dog. Christa Frineau, the dog’s owner, had also asked that Shotta not be euthanized.

Granosik refused to grant the request.
