Nearly 25,700 full time Ontario college students received tuition refunds after a five-week-strike derailed their semester.

Ontario's Ministry of Advanced Education confirmed today that 10.3 per cent of Ontario's roughly 250,000 full-time college students asked for, and received, their money back after the strike.

Minister Deb Matthews said that figures are still preliminary and could change in the coming weeks as further numbers are reported by Ontario's 24 colleges.

Last month, Matthews ordered colleges to refund the tuition money for any student who felt unable to complete the condensed semester.

The decision is likely to cost the schools millions of dollars which would have otherwise been saved because of the labour dispute.

The government ended the strike in November with back-to-work legislation passed in a rare weekend sitting at Queen's Park.

Roy Moore Loses Alabama Senate Seat

In a stunning victory aided by scandal, Democrat Doug Jones won Alabama's special Senate election, beating back history, an embattled Republican opponent and President Donald Trump, who urgently endorsed GOP rebel Roy Moore despite a litany of sexual misconduct allegations.

It was the first Democratic Senate victory in a quarter-century in Alabama, one of the reddest of red states, and proved anew that party loyalty is anything but certain in the age of Trump. Tuesday's Republican loss was a major embarrassment for the president and a fresh wound for the nation's already divided GOP.

“We have shown not just around the state of Alabama, but we have shown the country the way - that we can be unified,” Jones declared as supporters in a Birmingham ballroom cheered, danced and cried tears of joy. Still in shock, the Democrat struggled for words: “I think that I have been waiting all my life, and now I just don't know what the hell to say.”

The heads of the provinces police forces are meeting in Hamilton today and the major focus will be the opioid crisis.

The Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police will be discussing equipping front line officers with the life-saving Naloxone kits.  The province has already agreed to foot the bill for the kits for police and firefighters but some forces, like Hamilton aren't sure its the right move. Hamilton Chief Eric Girt says his preferred is for paramedics to carry the anti-overdose kits.  Woodstock police last week announced its officers would be trained to carry and administer the drug.

A Stratford man is facing 35 criminal charges and 16 counts of extortion after allegedly extorting dozens of women over social media.

Stratford police say the 22 year old used fake Instagram and Snapchat accounts to dupe women into sending him nude pictures for money. He would not pay but instead threaten to send the images to family or friends on Facebook if the women didn't pay up.

The 18 month investigation located victims across the province but police believe there could be more.  If you have information or believe you are a victim you are asked to contact Stratford Police.
