Changes begin tomorrow for anyone who wants to challenge parking tickets in Winnipeg.

Olympics Security

An exciting day for Canada's athletes at the Rio Games was also an exiting day for those not involved in competition.

While Canada's Womens 4-by-100-metre swim team was earning a bronze medal, police detonated an unattended bag that was left near the finish line of a cycling race.

In another incident, a stray bullet pierced the roof of a media tent -- but no one was hurt.
