[ ] >> Announcer: "ctv national news" with omar sachedina. Reporting tonight, todd van der hayden. >> Todd: good evening. If you've ever been to a concert you know how expensive ticket prices can be and in recent years, costs have skyrocketed. Now a major lawsuit against the world's biggest concert promoter live nation. Which is ticketmaster's parent company. It puts on concerts for top names in music, but the U.S. government wants to break up. Saying the company has illegally maintained a monopoly, unfairly dominated the live entertainment industry pressuring artists and threatening rivals. The result, higher ticket prices, stifled competition. That's according to the U.S. department of justice. Live nation is canada's top concert promoter, so the implications could be huge. Our washington bureau chief joy malbon has more for us. >> Reporter: call it the taylor swift effect... [ ] after the ticketing crash that kicked off her 2022 eras tour left fans fuming... [ Crying ] >> I didn't get tickets to the taylor swift concert. >> Reporter: that led to a congressional investigation a year ago. Now the U.S. justice department and 30 states are suing. Accusing ticketmaster and live nation, the concert promoter, of illegally abusing its monopoly power by suffocating competition and gouging consumers. >> We allege that live nation has illegally monopolized markets across the live concert industry in the united states for far too long. It is time to break it up. >> Reporter: after a merger in 2010, live nation and ticketmaster have had a lock on artists and music venues, controlling 60% of concert promotions at 265 venues in north america. The lawsuit refers to a ticketmaster tax, you know, that long list of added fees? >> Convenience fees, platinum fees, price master fees. >> No price gouging! >> Reporter: fans have complained for years. Just ask teresa caldwell, a swiftie, who flew to sweden with her friends to see their idol. It was simply cheaper. >> Toronto prices are insane. In the nose bleeds was three grand. In sweden, we got tickets, floor seats, for $500 canadian. >> Reporter: she welcomes the U.S. legal action and while canada's competition bureau says it's aware of the lawsuit, it won't confirm it's investigating. >> We always know that more competition is more choice for canadians. We're going to be taking a very focused look on that. >> Reporter: live nation calls the accusations baseless and absurd. >> We fundamentally disagree with all of these allegations. >> Reporter: live nation blames ticket prices on rising production costs and online ticket scalping. But the justice department is determined to break up the company in a legal battle that will likely take years. Todd? >> Todd: ctv's joy malbon in washington.

>>> An update tonight from vancouver on major pharmacy chain london drugs targeted by cybercriminals. The chain says hackers have followed through on a threat to release confidential information after london drugs refused to pay a ransom. Our bc bureau chief andrew johnson joins me now. Andrew? >> Reporter: todd, the deadline came and went today for london drugs to pay ransomware hackers lockbit millions of dollars. Now they've released personal information onto the dark web. The data was stolen in a cyberattack last month that forced the closure of all 79 london drugs locations. Lockbit claimed responsibility this week and demanded $25 million. London drugs said it was unwilling and unable to pay and in a statement today adds we acknowledge that some of these files may contain some employee information. This is deeply distressing and london drugs is taking all available steps to mitigate any impacts from the criminal acts. The retailer says it does not believe customer information was compromised. >> It could be things like salary information, disciplinary proceedings. Drug testing in some cases where that's been carried out. >> Reporter: london drugs is offering employees two years of identity theft protection and says it will be notifying those affected to inform them what personal information of theirs may no longer be private. Todd? >> Todd: ctv's andrew johnson. >>> Big news from the world of women's basketball. Canada will be getting its very own wnba team, toronto making it official today after teasing the news for the past two weeks. It will be the first franchise outside of the U.S. that will be playing in about two years. And while the team still needs a name, there is already tons of excitement. Ctv's mike walker has more. >> Toronto, welcome to the w. >> Reporter: after much anticipation, it's official. The wnba is coming to toronto. >> This team is canada's team. >> Reporter: gilmour sports ventures has been awarded the 14th franchise. Tannenbaum, also the chairman and minority owner of maple leaf sports and entertainment paid $115 million U.S. for the team. >> Our team will complete the pathway for women in this country. They can see that the sport they play as girls and as women is just as important and worth investing in. >> Reporter: toronto has been on the wnba's radar since the raptors 2019 championship run. Last year, the league sold out scotiabank arena for a preseason game. >> I attended our toronto game and lots of people coming up to me and saying thank you for making my dreams come true by bringing a wnba game here. That's when I knew that this is the right place as we're thinking about expansion. >> Reporter: starting in 2026, the home court will be at the coca cola coliseum with occasional games at scotiabank arena and in montréal and vancouver. >> We want to use the team to elevate basketball in canada. >> Reporter: teresa resch who spent a decade with the raptors serving as vice president of operations and player development named the team's president today. >> The wnba has never had a team internationally and comes with very difficult details to work through that there's no precedent for.

I mean we've -- we haven't had that in so long. It's something that you dream of and finally coming true. >> Reporter: mike walker, ctv news, toronto. >> Todd: the buzz about artificial intelligence is everywhere these days. How it's going to re-shape many industries and that includes medicine. Doctors at one leading children's hospital in ontario are now using ai to help identify kids who may have rare diseases. Ctv's judy trinh has a closer look. >> Reporter: for years, the wistaff family searched for the cause of developmental delays in their 10-year-old son anthony. >> His balance is very poor. As well as being able to retain information and grasp everyday small tasks and knowledge was very challenging. >> Reporter: doctors initially thought the delays were due to complications from surgery anthony had as a baby. He was born with excessive fluid around his brain. After more than 100 visits to a hospital and being bounced from one specialist to another, anthony was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder. >> There's about only 400 people in the world known with this disease right now as we speak.

anthony's actually the first one diagnosed with this disease in north america. >> Reporter: there are 6,000 rare genetic diseases. Anthony may not have been diagnosed if he wasn't flagged for testing through cheo's ai algorithm called think rare. It took a team of researchers three years to develop. >> It's kind of a nudge. It's not -- we're not replacing the doctor. We're kind of helping them with some of these digital tools. >> Reporter: for this pilot project, researchers use the algorithm to analyze 10 years of data consisting of more than 250,000 patient records. Of that number, 15 people were flagged as having potential rare genetic diseases. Ai is allowing cheo doctors to diagnose rare disorders in kids much earlier so families can get help faster. >> You don't have a specific diagnostic code attached to you in the educational system, you're often not given enough. >> Reporter: cheo doesn't want to profit off its technology but wants to share the ai algorithm with other children's hospitals for free.

Witnesses say it happened in seconds with video showing people running away or climbing out from under debris. The event was held in support of a presidential candidate ahead of elections next month. More than 120 people were injured. It's believed heavy winds may have been the cause. And that same storm system in mexico may have caused widespread destruction in central texas. >> Get in the house! >> Todd: the city of temple declared a local emergency after a twister ripped up a hotel, shopping mall and other buildings. There are no reports, fortunately, of any serious injuries. >> Nope, right there. >> Todd: some surreal scenes in alliston, ontario north of toronto last night as a massive funnel cloud was spotted during a major storm.
