Trump's election, the Brexit vote, and the Fort McMurray fire: news from 2016
An in-brief look at some Canadian and international news events of the last 12 months, listed in chronological order.
BRAMPTON, Ont. — Police and fire officials are expected to provide an update today on a deadly house explosion in Mississauga, Ont., that took place this summer.
Peel Regional Police say Mississauga's fire chief, the city's mayor and an investigator from the Official of the Fire Marshall of Ontario will be among those at a news conference set for this afternoon.
Two people were killed and nine others were injured in the June 28 blast that rained debris all over a Mississauga neighbourhood, forcing hundreds from their homes.
Police identified two bodies found in the wreckage at the core of the blast as Robert Nadler and Dianne Page, both 55 years old.
Police had said in July that these were looking into the possibility that the blast was a criminal incident.
The local fire chief had called the damage caused by the explosion "extensive," and had noted that at least 69 residences had been affected by the blast.
