Jake Parsons and his friends were expecting to catch cod, but instead they were met with a pod of killer whales in Perry's Cove, N.L. • While out fishing over the weekend, two orcas emerged on either side of the boat and then swam over to five others nearby. • “They kept comin' and comin' and comin'. Then they disappeared for about 20 minutes and we thought they were gone," Parsons said. • But their unexpected adventure didn't end there. • Parsons said the whales started bumping the bottom of the boat, and one was even bobbing up to the surface to look the fishermen in the eye. • “I felt safe, because I had two other guys with me that I could have given to them and took off!" he said. • Video by: Rick Chubey | #Orca #orcawhales #whales #newfoundland #labrador #PerrysCove #SalmonCove #fishing #cod #cbc #cbcnews #cbcnewfoundland ...

Luc Dubois, 18, used his piloting skills to cook up a surprise promposal in the skies above Sarnia, Ont., for his girlfriend Rafella Garito. • "When she wasn't paying attention, I just pulled back the power in the airplane," said Dubois. • With the plane's engine appearing to malfunction, Dubois pulled out a safety checklist for Garito to read. It had a series of troubleshooting steps — including one he had added with Photoshop. • "Trim for best glide ... fuel selector ... carb heat on ... primer on," Garito read, ignoring the last step on the manual. • Dubois asked her to keep reading. • "In order to land safely, passenger must go to prom with pilot," she repeated. • Even after reading it twice, Garito still didn't understand what was happening. Eventually, Dubois had to ask her directly if she would be his prom date. • Did she accept? Would we be doing this story if she had said no? • • • Photos and Video: @imlucdubois | #CBC #CBCNews #Flying #Planes #Prom #Promposal #Sarnia #SkiesAbove ...

Wearing red T-shirts with a big white maple leaf in the middle and matching smiles, these two brothers wanted to sing O Canada as a thank you to the country that welcomed their family three and a half years ago.
•
Before settling in Corner Brook, N.L., the Almaidanis had been living in Damascus before fleeing war-torn Syria in 2012. They spent the next several years in a refugee camp in Jordan, where Laith, the youngest, was born.
•
His older brother Owais says he doesn't remember much from the day he arrived in Canada, except for the snow, of course.

When we came in the house some woman took a picture of a lot of people, and we were in the middle," said Owais. • The boys’ father, Mohamad Almaidani, says his family is proud to call Canada their home and native land. • "Canada is a new home for us and [a] safe and peaceful home," Almaidani said. • "I have a lot of people who support me and they still come to my home every day. I see it as a new home and we love Canada." • • • Video: Marwa Almaidani | #ProudCanadians #July1 #CanadaDay #Canada #CBCNews #CBC ...

This Saturday at a Blue Jays game, O Canada was performed in Cree.
•
Kiya Bruno won the chance to perform at a casting call in Alberta.
•
“It's actually really good that they're now spreading more awareness … about Indigenous people,” said Bruno who is from the Samson Cree Nation, about 100 km south of Edmonton.
•
The 13-year-old's performance marks National Indigenous Peoples Day on June 21.
•
There was also a land acknowledgement and a number of First Nations chiefs in attendance.
•
It's the third year that the Blue Jays have celebrated National Indigenous Peoples Day at the Rogers Centre.
•
An earlier caption to this post indicates Bruno’s performance was the first time the national anthem has been sung in Cree at a Jays game.
•
In fact, it has been done at least once before by sisters Natashia and Alexandria Moodie who performed at a game in 1999.

A bird’s eye view unlike any other.
•
James Williams recently placed his GoPro near a pile of fish remains hoping to get some cool shots of ravens and eagles in B.C.’s Haida Gwaii.
•
What happened next is beyond what he ever expected.
•
The eagles grabbed the camera and took off skyward over the beach and the ocean. “I was just blown away,” said Williams.
•
His story doesn’t end there. He assumed the camera had been dropped in the ocean and never expected to get it back.
•
But in a lucky twist, a house guest of his neighbour happened to spot his GoPro earlier this week while walking on the beach.

Nevaeh Denine spent much of her short life trying to help other kids like herself ​⁠— ​children dealing with cancer.
•
The little girl from Newfoundland and Labrador raised thousands of dollars with her lemonade stand before succumbing to the illness last August.
•
On Saturday ​⁠—​ on what would’ve been her 10th birthday​⁠ —​ hundreds of friends, family and community members kept her mission alive with the 6th Annual Nevaeh's Lemonade Stand fundraiser.
•
There was lemonade, of course, and a special shout-out from one of Canada’s biggest children’s music stars: Splash’N Boots.
•
“We were so lucky to spend time with Nevaeh’s mom and best friends filming a video for the song Lemonade we wrote with [Alan Doyle],” reads a post on the band’s Instagram. “[It’s in] honour [of] this incredible girl who has made such a huge difference to so many families affected by pediatric cancer.”
•
Doyle and Nick Adams and Taes Leavitt of Splash’N Boots joined up last week in Quidi Vidi for the shoot, according to the musicians’ Instagram posts.
•
As for the fundraiser, it raised thousands more dollars for sick children in the province. Nevaeh’s mom said the event made her daughter's birthday a little easier to bear.
•
Holly Denine says she believes her daughter was watching the affair unfold from above.

How long can you hold your breath for?
•
Probably not as long as Sheena McNally. The freediver from Edmonton can hold her breath for six minutes.
•
The astonishing skill helped the 35-year-old break the record for deepest free immersion dive by a Canadian woman earlier this month in Roatan, Honduras: 82 metres below sea level.

The freediver from Edmonton can hold her breath for six minutes. • The astonishing skill helped the 35-year-old break the record for deepest free immersion dive by a Canadian woman earlier this month in Roatan, Honduras: 82 metres below sea level. • "No tanks, no scuba apparatus, no backup oxygen,” said McNally, describing the sport where she’s among the top 10 females in the world. “Just you, your lungs, and the air you take from the surface, descending to depths that might, at first, seems a little crazy." • Photos: Alex St-Jean @alexstjeanphoto , Laura Babahekian @deaquavivo Daan Verhoeven @daanverhoevenfreediver Reporting by Fakiha Baig, @CBCEdmonton Sourced via @cbcnews #6ixviews #issating #movethecultureforward #cbcnews #freediving #freedive #edmonton #underwaterphotography #ocean #photography #Canadian #freeimmersion #Canada #sport ...

It’s a quiet beauty.
•
Harold Smith admits that the native plants in his tangled garden are small and subtle. But he likes it that way.
•
“This is more real. This is genuine. It’s not artificial,” he said.
•
Smith used to have a garden much like others in his Toronto neighbourhood, with manicured lawns, hydrangeas and periwinkle.
•
He now considers those plants from commercial nurseries inferior because they do little to support pollinators.
•
“It’s the absence of life,” Smith said. “The plants are alive but they’re not attracting very much to them.”
•
A few years ago the former architect began tearing up his lawn and replacing it with a mix of native species such as milkweed, coneflower and Canada mayflower.
•
Smith says his garden quickly became a magnet for bees and butterflies. It’s practically humming with life.
•
“They love everything here,” he said.
•
The neighbours don’t seem to be jumping to follow his lead but that’s OK with Smith.
•
“My wife approves of it. That’s all that counts.”
