A surge of retail stock trading over the last year lit the fuse that sent shares of GameStop Corp rocketing higher without a clear business reason, market watchers say, squeezing hedge funds that had bet against the video game retailer and other companies that were out of favor on Wall Street. Here are some answers: BEHIND THE SURGE IN INTEREST OF RETAIL INVESTORS: More individuals have invested in stocks during the COVID-19 pandemic, and experts cite a number of reasons. Lockdowns boosted savings, policy stimulus put cash into people's pockets, and extremely low interest rates drove investors to the stock market.
Hamilton school boards are waiting to hear from the province on whether students will be back in classrooms on Feb. 11. Kids are currently learning remotely — under a 28-day stay-at-home order issued by the province in an effort to curb the spread of COVID-19 — until at least Feb. 10. In an email to The Spectator, Catholic board chair Pat Daly said he’s been told in calls with Ministry of Education officials that they hope to provide information “as early as possible next week” to help boards prepare. Daly said the ministry has indicated “they are going to give boards as much notice as possible.” The Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board said they’re preparing for Feb. 11 as the date students will return to in-person learning, but hope the ministry would provide “as much notice as possible” should the province announce a further extension to remote learning. Last week, the city’s public board penned a letter to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Premier Doug Ford and Mayor Fred Eisenberger calling for clarity for families and educators in school reopening plans. “We’ve had a pattern of communication from the government ... where we’ve had fairly late notice for a number of decisions that really impact families,” board chair Dawn Danko said in a Jan. 20 interview with The Spectator. “We need time to plan and prepare.” The province announced on Jan. 20 that students in Halton, Brantford, Haldimand and Norfolk, among others, would not return to in-person learning on Jan. 25, as previously planned. Schools in seven public health units, including Grey Bruce, Kingston and Peterborough, were given the go-ahead to reopen. “We’re watching all of the others as well very carefully,” Dr. Barbara Yaffe, Ontario’s associate chief medical officer of health, said in a Jan. 21 news conference. In the letter, the HWDSB also asked the province for pandemic pay for educators “attending in-person at a physical school” — many since Jan. 4 — to recognize “the elevated risk” to staff supporting students with special needs in schools during the remote-learning period. “We have yet to hear an official response from our letter to the three levels of government,” said HWDSB spokesperson Shawn McKillop in an email to The Spectator.

A slugfest between Wall Street and Main Street took an unexpected turn late on Wednesday after moderators of a stock trading forum that has helped fuel massive rallies in the shares of GameStop temporarily closed its doors. Shares of GameStop, AMC Entertainment, Koss Corp and BlackBerry all dropped at least 20% moments after the shuttering of the forum, highlighting the role it has played in fueling stock rallies that many say have been driven primarily by retail investors.

The artistic swimming Olympic qualification event due to be held in Tokyo in March has been postponed until May because of novel coronavirus restrictions in Japan, organisers said on Thursday. Tokyo 2020 organisers and swimming's world governing body FINA said the qualifier, which also doubles as a test event for this summer's Tokyo Games, would take place from May 1-4 instead. "The decision to postpone was taken for a number of reasons including assisting the ongoing efforts in Japan to come out of the current situation as soon as possible," they said in a joint statement.
OTTAWA — Julie Payette's resignation as governor general was prompted by a scathing review of the work environment she presided over at Rideau Hall, described by dozens of people as hostile, toxic, or poisoned. The government released the findings of the independent review conducted by Quintet Consulting Corp. on Wednesday evening. The report is heavily redacted, primarily to protect participants' privacy, and whole pages of details are blacked out or removed. Still, the report says Quintet heard allegations of "yelling, screaming, aggressive conduct, demeaning comments and public humiliation" — behaviour that was "repeated and persistent." Representative descriptions of the work environment at Rideau Hall included phrases such as "the definition of a poisoned work environment," "humiliation," "disrespect" and "condescension," the report says. If the alleged conduct occurred as described, the report says "by any objective standard," it would "lead to a toxic workplace." "Quintet concludes that there is a serious problem that requires PCO (Privy Council Office) immediate attention." Payette resigned last Thursday, one week after the government received the report from Quintet. It was commissioned by the Privy Council Office to look into CBC reports that Payette and her secretary, Assunta Di Lorenzo, had presided over a toxic workplace. Di Lorenzo also resigned. Quintet interviewed 92 current and former employees and "knowledgeable individuals" who had worked with Rideau Hall during Payette's tenure. "Fewer than 10 participants ... reported only positive or neutral information about the work environment," the report says. "However, the overwhelming majority of participants described experiences that would objectively be considered 'concerns and allegations,'" the report says. Specifically, 43 participants "described the general work environment as hostile, negative or other words to that effect." Twenty-six "specifically used the words 'toxic' or 'poisoned.'" Eight "used the expressions climate/reign of fear/terror and 12 participants said they were 'walking on eggshells.'" the report says. As well, 20 participants "reported having witnessed harassment in their workplace or referred to harassing behaviours in the workplace." Seventeen participants reported that they left their jobs during Payette's tenure because of the work environment — at least 16 in less than a year. Another 13 reported taking sick leave. Still, Quintet says it received only one formal complaint about harassment, which was unrelated to the issue it was hired to investigate. The review did not make any findings of fact or determine whether the reported conduct actually took place. However, the report notes that there was "considerable overlap and consistency" to the allegations made by participants. It says employees did not feel they had a place to go with their complaints, that human resources practices at Rideau Hall were inadequate. Staff had reported problems to management but "little or no change resulted." Payette has admitted to no specific wrongdoing. She said in a statement last week that she was resigning for the good of the institution. This report by The Canadian Press was first published Jan. 27, 2021. Joan Bryden, The Canadian Press

Singapore has detained a 16-year-old for intending to attack two mosques, plans authorities said were inspired by the killing of Muslim worshippers in Christchurch, New Zealand in March 2019. The boy, an unnamed Christian of Indian ethnicity, had purchased a tactical vest online and had intended to also buy a machete at the time of his arrest in December, the Internal Security Department (ISD) said in a statement on Wednesday. He had conducted reconnaissance of the mosques near his home, intended to livestream his attack and prepared statements that referenced Christchurch attacker Brenton Tarrant who is serving life imprisonment for killing 51 Muslim worshippers and injuring dozens of others on March 15, 2019.

A Minnesota pillow company famous for its infomercials suddenly became embroiled in political controversy as its CEO refused to back down from ardently defending former President Donald Trump and baseless claims of election fraud. My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell was permanently banned from Twitter earlier this week for peddling unfounded claims that Trump won the election. The social media giant had permanently barred Trump earlier this month in the wake of the deadly Jan. 6 mob attack at the U.S. Capitol.
