Canada’s population surges to 37 million people thanks to immigration, Senate passes landmark PTSD bill, and Donald Trump is no longer being called a “dotard” in North Korea.
Canada’s population has officially surpassed the 37-million mark largely due to robust immigration numbers.

Canada will roll out its first federal plan to address post-traumatic stress disorder after a private members' bill passed in the Senate Thursday.
The legislation aims to curb what the bill’s sponsor, Conservative MP Todd Doherty, calls an "epidemic" of suicides among people who have PTSD.
At the peak of tensions between the U.S. and North Korea, Donald Trump was labelled a “mentally deranged dotard” by Kim Jong Un.
