Welcome back to Your Midday Sun where Brian Lilley is not-so-happy with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and what he calls their "utter incompetence" for allowing allegations that they were investigating Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in the SNC-Lavalin affair to circulate without correcting the record. Do you agree with his take that the RCMP are arguably the most incompetent police force in the Western world? READ BRIAN LILLEY and SHARE YOUR COMMENTS! KEEPINGI 111 The looming cabinet shuffle at Queen's Park was the talk of the town province as seemingly every minister in Doug Ford's cabinet wants the lowdown. But as to be expected, Ford is holding his cards close to his chest and enjoying keeping everyone, including his ministers, on their toes. More from Brian Lilley.

Two others were recovered and are in hospital. ALSO: * Rescuers in a remote area of the Atlantic Ocean, about 700 km south of St. John's, are in a race against time to find a missing sub with a limited oxygen supply carrying five people on a mission to document the wreckage of the Titanic. * Ukrainian air defences downed 32 of 35 exploding drones launched by Russia, most of them in the Kyiv region in a bombardment that exposed gaps in the country's air protection. * Meanwhile, about 100 Ukrainian soldiers are being trained by Canadian troops at a safe, secret location in southwestern Poland in the ongoing war against Russia. * Four people were hospitalized in New Zealand after a man armed with an axe began attacking random diners at three neighbouring Chinese restaurants. * Andrew Tate and his brother Tristan have been charged with rape, human trafficking and forming a criminal gang to exploit women, according to prosecutors in Romania. * U.S. President Joe Biden's son Hunter has reached an agreement with the Justice Department after he was charged with failing to pay federal income tax and illegally possessing a weapon. * At least six teenagers were shot outside a Milwaukee church where a Juneteenth celebration had just wrapped up. LETSGET Is it time for Maxime Bernier and the People's Party of Canada to throw up the white flag and admit they don't represent many people? Bernier, the once-powerful cabinet minister who came close to winning the Conservative Party of Canada leadership in 2017, couldn't even win a byelection seat in Manitoba on Monday. Bernier has become a politician who will adopt any issue for votes and wants to portray himself and his party as the only true conservative-leaning party in Canada. Instead, the PPC has become home to fringe messages, anger and distrust. No one is buying what he is selling. It's time to close shop.

CULTE?RE CI.UB Demi Lovato revealed that she ditched her "they/them" pronouns and went back to using "she/her" because it had become "absolutely exhausting" for the non-binary star to keep having to educate people and explain why she identified that way.
