Gleyber Torres could be back in the New York Yankees lineup as early as Wednesday, a week after the fully vaccinated shortstop tested positive for COVID-19. Manager Aaron Boone said Tuesday that Torres had been cleared by Major League Baseball's joint committee and was already en route to Texas to rejoin the team. Torres was the only player among nine total positives within the Yankees traveling party since last week, which included three coaches and five staffers.

As flood waters receded, Derek Erasmus returned to his home in Fort Simpson to survey the damage — silt on nearly every surface, and items toppled blocking access to rooms. When the water came up over the first floor, Erasmus was worried most about two items: his grandfather's bible, and his other grandfather's dry meat bag. He inherited both items when they died, and those were the two things he was worried about as the floodwaters rose. The bible was wet, but the dry meat bag unscathed.

(Loren McGinnis/CBC) 'We still love it here' An estimated 700 residents were forced to evacuate the community over a week ago when the Liard River broke, with some fleeing to Fort Smith, Hay River and Norman Wells. Flood waters have since receded, and community members have returned to assess the damage. Erasmus's garage and rental unit filled with nearly a metre of water, soaking his tools and his wife's pottery studio. Without insurance, rebuilding will be a considerable effort, he said. "We'll have to clean it all out and repair everything. New flooring, drywall. I think we'll have to replace insulation," he said. They'll have to relocate their mechanical room upstairs, in case the community ever floods like this again, he said. Even though the Dehcho (Mackenzie River) is powerful, and though Erasmus has been flooded out before, he's not planning to move any time soon. "We still love it here. It's nice to be by the river." They've been staying with their parents on higher ground, and their young daughter has been upset by the flood. The waters also displaced one of their renters and the revenue they get from a suite, which went underwater. Walking through the house, Erasmus tells CBC the silt has affected an entire level of their house. "Pretty dirty, lots of silt on the ground," he said. 'Everyone pulled together' The public works crew having a coffee and making a plan for the morning.(Loren McGinnis/CBC) Erasmus says he and his neighbours are trying to remain positive. "Everyone pulled together.… Everyone got fed, everyone got housed. It's been positive for the community to come together, especially [with] COVID-19… there's been no drum dances or feasts." Erasmus said donations have come in from all over the North from businesses and individuals and "everyone is trying to help out the communities affected." "People are bringing blankets down to tent city … someone makes a call out on Facebook 'We need this,' there's several people responding to help out," he said. He says communities like Jean Marie River have seen people lose everything, and communities in the Sahtu and Beaufort Delta regions have yet to see the river rise like it did in the Dehcho region. Erasmus says workers in Fort Simpson have been working tirelessly, for 20 hours a day over the last week, to get the community's infrastructure back in shape. Erasmus said he doesn't have flood insurance, but he hopes the territorial government's emergency response will involve "stepping in to help affected homeowners out" with critical components like heat and water. As he rebuilds, he'll be looking to invest in more flood-resistant materials in the event the flooding comes once again.

A private proposal to bring a four-season resort to Ingonish, N.S., has received a financial boost from Ottawa. Private partners working to redevelop the Cape Smokey ski hill received a $2.5-million loan Tuesday to be used in the construction of a gondola and a seven-storey observation tower known as a tree walk. "Our project is moving forward despite all these immense obstacles that COVID-19 is creating for us," said Joseph Balaz, president of Cape Smokey Holding Ltd. Balaz said the provincial lockdown in Nova Scotia means some key personnel are currently tied up at the New Brunswick border, which has meant delays and rising costs. The summer opening of the tree walk is postponed, as they've been unable to get construction materials to Ingonish on time. However, Balaz said the hill has about 70 per cent of the equipment and other components needed for the towers to shuttle what's described as Atlantic Canada's first gondola. "We are building towers for the gondola and we are absolutely excited about the project," he said.

But he said the funding is a meaningful show of support for the project. "It is very, very important — even for psychological sort of reasons," he said. "Imagine when you have a group of investors from far, far, far away. They need to sort of sense that the ... project is welcome by the province, by the local community." Property purchased in 2019 Balaz is among a group of Czech businessmen who purchased the property from the province for $370,000 in 2019. The construction of the tree walk is the crowning jewel of their proposal. "We discovered that in Europe there's several of these tree walk facilities ... that creates this year-round opportunity for activities, for employment, for tourists and especially for local communities," said Balaz. Balaz said the first phase of the project includes the gondola, tree walk and some hill improvements expected to cost $26 million. A brewery at the property is slated to open in 2022. Balaz said $20 million has been invested so far by project partners. They are holding out hope the gondola will be operational later this summer. Work underway Patrick Austin, Cape Smokey operations manager, said the hill will be offering a gift shop, bar and restaurant to tourists this summer. Construction is underway on a depot to store the gondola's lift baskets and the facility's parking lot is also being reconfigured. The construction phase of the project will add 85 jobs to the area, said Jaime Battiste, the MP for Sydney-Victoria. Battiste said the government investment ensures Cape Breton Island will be ready to welcome back tourists when leisure travel resumes in Canada. When asked about providing money to established tourism operators in Ingonish that have struggled throughout the pandemic, Battiste said Destination Cape Smokey will create economic spinoffs that will benefit them, as well. "A lot of small businesses in Cape Breton ... are just so excited about what this project is about and what it means to their small business to have more tourists coming," he said. MORE TOP STORIES
