the walk coming up, but I'd like to start with your story, because as an ambassador for the walk, obviously you have a personal connection with multiple sclerosis. >> I do. I was diagnosed with ms, relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis, at the beginning of january 2020. I've been living with ms forever four years. It was a life-changi unfortunately, I had to renavigate and discover what my new normal would look like. I woke up one morning in 2018 with full leg paralysis on the right side o my body from the tip down to my toes. Within a year of me trying to seek answers, reaching out to health care professionals, I actually started preed new, critical symptoms by the end of 2019. Ey included optic newerrites, incontinence issues and issues that resulted in an inability to communicate. So by 2020, I was contemplating my uncin future with an unpredictable disease no cure. >> Candace: and when we all think back to 2020 and what was going on in the world at that time, ti can only imagine that would add to the fear and uncertainty you were feeling with getting that diagnosis and just wrapping your head around the whole notion. >> Mm-hmm. >> Candace: how has ms canada and the community that you found there been able to support you help guide you? >> Well, working with ms canada, I'm a completely different woman today speaking to you. Ur years ago, because of my physical incapabilities, I wouldn't be here. So, I'm so thankful for all the opportunities, programs, and resources that they've made available to me for me to livethe best life I can. It's very important for me to move mission forward and unite in hope towards a world free of ms, and I really believe that wean achieve that. And we can achieve better health outc, and because of ms canada, I am just so grateful, and I just hope that everybodycan experience the life that I'm living today. >> Can: wow. And ms canada has been on the leading edge of some research breakthroughs that have been happening recently, and there's more reason than ever to be hopeful, and that is -- if not all, but a large part due to the fund raising that happens during this 5km walk. It happensn cities right across canada. Can you tell us what it means to be an ambassador and how this walk helps you and the community? Ell, ms walk is a community-drivenundraising event for those affected by ms and those looking a world free of ms. Ms walk is very emotional and very personal to me: as you already mentioned, over 50 locations across canada are participating, including toronto. On may 26th, you can join me at downsview park, where I will be walking 5km route, and can hopefully gather with the community and share best practices and make a meaningful difference. So I hope to see you there, because I will be kicking off the opening ceremonies at 11 A.m. >> Candace: mm-hmm, and you hear so many stories and, you know, sval stories and just stories of strength throughout that 5km walk as well. You can make so m friends. I know just because I've done one or two as well.ely is a great event. So, as karen mentioned, the walk is this sunday at downsview park.

Toronto getting their first-ever wnba team. Now, this area is filled -- I mu say -- with lots of security guards, lots of police cars in the area. There's a bit of a buzz aro where this announcement is being held, which tells me that there's going to some pretty important people here for this announcement today. Now, the league awarding the frise to kilmer sports ventures, as you mentioned, that headed by toronto sinessman larry tannenbaum, who's also chairman of the mlse, which owns t toronto raptors and toronto maple leafs. Now,eam will start playing in may of 2026. That's what we're hearing. The team has yet to be named, but we're also hearing that theyl play at coca-cola coliseum, which is quite close to where we arew, the wnba has been an expanding franchise, with 12 american teams. We've seen it really grow in popularity, grow in success. Now, a, we're hearing that toronto will be the -- awarded the first canadian team in thewnba, and really it shows that toronto is ready. Keep in independent mind that I believe back in 2023, there was a sold-out crowd here at scotiabank arenafor a pre-season game for the wnba. So fans are certainlyited to hearing this happening. The officialouncement happening at 9 a.m. Stay tuned for that. L bring you the latest when that becomes available. Candace, back to you. >> Candace: thanks, indicated jaden.

There is no suspectnformation at this time. >>> A jury has found dallas ly, the toronto man who admitted to lling his mother, guilty of second-degree murder. Our crime specialist catherine McDONALD has been covering this disturbing casehe beginning and has more on the verdict. >> Reporter: just minutes after a jury found dallas ly guilty of second-degree murder, his lawyers speak outside court about their 23-year-old client. >> Yes, we spoke to him. >> He's obviously disappointed, viously, in the verdict, and you know, the fact that he is going to be sentenced now to a life sentence is something that is vult for this young man to have to deal with in the circumstances. >> Reporter: dallas ly, who testified in his own defence, saider years of physical and mental abuse, on the night of march 27th, 2022, he tols mother after she returned home from work at her nail salon thatoving out from their carlaw avenue condo and moving in with his aunt. He testified mother became enraged, threatened to hill kill him and his aunt, and he got a knife to scare her. Began punching and hitting him, he said he saw red and began swinging the knife and struck his mother. He admitted he later panicked, cut off her head and disposed of her body, but he never intended toill her. >> Our doctor, Dr. Patel, interviewed dallas ly extensively, he felt -- he gave an opinion, a psychiatric opinion after reviewing the evidence, thallas ly did suffer from post traumatic stress order at the time of the homicide. We say that reduced his mental culpability. He did not have the intent to commit murder. >> Reporter: the judge ruled a forensic psychiatrist for crown was allowed to give a pure assessment of that psychiatric opinion without interviewing dallas ly. The defence says that could be grounds for an appeal. >> If the crown offered evidence of a critique of the defence doctor, we vigorously opposed that during this trial. Report based on the verdict, the jury sided with the c, that dallas ly never got help f the abuse and only confided in one friend. Still has a stigma, and abuse and neglect. We see it. It's out there. Itard to get young people the help that they, that we need, that our community needs. >> Reporter: second-degree murder comes with an automotive life sene. The judge must now decide on a period of parole ineligibility between ten and 25 years.

Understandable, especially I you don't have ac, but bet weather conditions today. Still above average, but just not as humid. And sunshine, too. That's always n isn't it? , and you can see here on the harbour cam, not a cloud in sight. And we're expecting one of thosedays today. Certainly different than yesterday, when those towering cumulus clouds sta bubbling up, those powerful storms north and wes the city. A quieter weather day for all areas today. Still going to be a little breezy with those winut of the southwest, but certainly not as war at this time yesterday, we were already approaching the 20s. Evenbove that.
