(CRIME-Sex-Trade)

Police in Winnipeg say they're worried other women may have been victimized in a case where three men were charged with multiple sex-trade offences involving three women.

An investigation began in April when police say they learned about one woman who alleged she had been threatened and made to work in the sex industry.

Police say in a news release that online ads were posted between late April and early June portraying women as "escorts who provide sexual services."

They allege the suspects would arrange meetings at Winnipeg hotels, and on several occasions drove the women to locations, met with customers and took payments. (The Canadian Press)

A 16-month-old black bear that was one of two bears released in Alberta last month has been shot and killed.

The non-profit Cochrane Ecological Institute took in the bear, along with a female, as cubs last year when they both weighed under 10 kilograms.

No charges will be laid.

The province says it will continue to monitor the second bear. (The Canadian Press)

The pinata was part of the Canada Day party at Burgundy's Bar and Stage in Red Deer, and was filled with money, candy and notes with promises Trudeau has made.

Newell says he isn't surprised by the online backlash, but notes there have been more bitter protests against the Trudeau government. (The Canadian Press)
