(Courier Photo/William McBride) “It’s just one more mile in the marathon,” USO coach Kevin Reid said. “Allderdice is a talented team with some very special players. So, beating them was a good thing for our team.”The Dragons (10-1, 13-6) were led by senior swingman Justin Dobbs with 30 points. and a double-double showing by fellow classmate Ben Mickens.The latter followed up with 18 points and 14 rebounds.“Justin Dobbs is a great shooter and Ben is a fantastic big man,” Reid said. “(Allderdice) is and have been a great representation of our league.”USO’s D.J. Porter and Dontae Forte rounded out the Eagles’ scorers in double-digits with 17 and 15 points, respectively.“I knew what type of talent that USO was going to have before the season even started,” Allderdice coach Andre McDonald said. “They have a nice team. That game was the type that is going to put the City League on the map. I can’t wait to face this team when it counts.”Despite being in its first year of existence, Reid isn’t concerned about his team’s chemistry.“We have come together from different areas (of the city) to conquer a common cause,” Reid said. “After all, isn’t that what America is all about?”Hopefully for them, they can use that to derail the Dragons from their quest of another City title.“We want to win,” Reid added. “We’re taking it one game, and as a matter of fact– one quarter, at a time. One game does not dictate the season.”OTHER GAMESBrashear 81, Langley 73Led by Marlin Jackson’s 22 points, the Bulls ended a five-game skid.

Warriors Cavaliers Game 6Another NBA Finals game is set to be played tonight, so another Ohio State football hype video centered on the Cleveland Cavaliers is here. The Buckeyes, who have been releasing a mini-hype video for Cleveland before each Finals’ game, have released another one. Here it is:
OTTAWA – Here is a timeline of key events that sparked the 14-month renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement, leading to Sunday’s historic breakthrough with the creation of the new U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement, or USMCA:June 28, 2016 — Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump declares his antipathy for the North American Free Trade Agreement in a campaign speech in Pittsburgh, in the heart of a Rust Belt state that he would eventually win to secure the presidency. “NAFTA was the worst trade deal in history,” says Trump, pledging to renegotiate the pact “to get a better deal for our workers.” He promises to leave the agreement if Canada and Mexico refuse to bargain with him.Aug. 16, 2017 — Canada, Mexico and the United States commence the renegotiation of the NAFTA in earnest. The Trump administration opens with a lecture, upping the ante from earlier remarks that it simply wants to “tweak” the deal. Trump’s trade czar Robert Lighthizer declares: “We feel that NAFTA has fundamentally failed many, many Americans and needs major improvement.”October 2017 — The U.S. introduces so-called “poison pills” that Canada says it simply can’t accept. The U.S. wanted to increase American content in automobiles, get rid of Canada’s supply management system for agriculture, establish a five-year sunset clause, do away with a dispute settlement mechanism and reduce Mexican and Canadian access to bidding on U.S. procurement projects. The three countries would eventually reach a new deal on autos, while the U.S. backed away from the other demands.March 14, 2018 — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says Canada won’t be “bowled over” at the NAFTA talks by Trump. Trudeau makes the remarks while visiting steelworkers in Sault Ste. Marie, Ont. “We’re standing up for ourselves. But we know there’s a win-win-win we can get to,” Trudeau says. “We’re pushing back on some things that we think might not be the right suggestions, which is what people would expect from Canada.”June 7, 2018 — Trump hurls a series of personal insults at Trudeau from Air Force One after the G7 summit in Quebec. The president calls Canada’s prime minister “dishonest” and “weak” after Trudeau repeats his objections to massive steel and aluminum tariffs Trump imposed the previous week — tariffs that remain today. The incident marks a new low in prime ministerial-presidential politics across the 49th parallel at a time when NAFTA negotiations remain deadlocked.Aug. 27, 2018 — Mexico and the United States announce their own bilateral trade deal after weeks of negotiations that were simply supposed to be about autos. Instead they negotiated a sweeping text covering the full scope of the trading relationship. Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland is forced to blow up a trip to Europe and diverts to Washington, starting a month of intense negotiations to bring Canada into the NAFTA fold.Sept. 30, 2018 — Staring down a midnight deadline to provide a text of an agreement to Congress, Trump’s and Trudeau’s team work of the last minute details that brings Canada into a renewed continental trade pact. Trudeau leaves the Prime Minister’s Office after a late night cabinet meeting and says six words: “It’s a good day for Canada.”
The Canadian Press HALIFAX — DHX Media Ltd. reported a loss in its latest quarter compared with a profit a year ago as its revenue rose 5.5 per cent.The children’s entertainment company says it lost $2.4 million compared with a profit of $8.1 million a year ago, due to a larger non-controlling interest in Peanuts and a non-cash write-down in deferred financing charges.The loss amounted to two cents per share for the quarter ended Sept. 30 compared with a profit of six cents per share a year ago.Revenue in what was the first quarter of DHX’s financial year totalled $104 million, up from $98.6 million.Last week, DHX announced a deal to sell its Halifax animation studio to IoM Media Ventures as part of what it said was a strategic shift to focus and streamline its production operations.DHX completed a strategic review earlier this year that ended with a deal to boost distribution and sales of its Peanuts brand in China and elsewhere in Asia.

The Argentinean superstar knows clubs from other countries are breaking into the football elite thanks to foreign investmentA not-so-long time ago, there were just one or two powerful teams in any of the Top 5 European leagues.And Barcelona and Real Madrid were two of them.But now, teams from countries like England, Italy, and France are starting to catch up to the Spanish La Liga giants.At least this is what Barca’s Lionel Messi believes has happened in the last years.“There are clubs now with a lot of money and players move for that reason,” he told ESPN.Zidane reveals Sergio Ramos injury concern for Real Madrid Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Zinedine Zidane has put Sergio Ramos’ availability for Real Madrid’s trip to Sevilla next weekend in doubt after withdrawing him against Levante.“Whenever the most money is, that’s where they end up going. Things have changed and now the owners of clubs are multi-millionaires.”“Before everyone wanted to play for Barca or Madrid, who were the best, but now everything’s tighter and there’s not much of a difference between the teams in Manchester, PSG, Madrid, us, Bayern [Munich], the Italians…”And because of this, he was asked about if he would ever leave Barcelona.“I am just thinking about the years that I can keep playing,” he said when asked about what plans he has for retirement,” he explained.“When the moment comes, I will decide. I want to finish the contract I have and then we will see if I continue or not. It doesn’t worry me right now. [But] the club can be calm [when I am gone] if they keep bringing players through the academy and making good signings.”
