After many many many hours of flying from Toronto to Prince George, I AM BACK! This weekend was my first weekend back to work since I went on a mini-vacation to Toronto to visit my friends and family. When’s the last time you made it home? To say it was a PERFECT trip home would be an understatement. During my ten days I got to visit family, go out with friends and eat a lot of food! I also figured since I wont be home for the holidays this year I would take advantage of the Christmas decorations at home and go crazy, that’s right I set up my Christmas tree super early this year and then when i got to PG I set up another Christmas tree #spoiled.
Late Friday night France declared a national state of emergency and tightened borders after at least 128 people were killed in a night of gun and bomb attacks in Paris. Eighty people were reported killed after gunmen burst into the Bataclan concert hall and took hostages before security forces stormed the hall. People were shot dead at restaurants and bars at five other sites in Paris. At least 180 people were injured. All Saturday we had CKPG News Reporter Victoria Levy standing by with updates and new information. For more information visit www.CKPG.com.

Would you buy a car from a vending machine? Carvana announced the launch of the first car vending machine in Nashville, Tennessee this week. Forbes magazine labeled Carvana as the fifth most promising company… I don’t think I’m ready to give up the excitement of walking into a car dealership and picking out a car.The tower can hold up to 20 cars and contains three customer delivery bays and an automated delivery system. I suspect this will cut job if this idea becomes popular.

I don’t now about you but I’ve been a fan of Ronda Rousey for a while, I love the energy she brings to the UFC and how she represents women every chance she gets. For a while it felt like nobody was going to beat Ronda Rousey but Holly Holm did just that. Saturday night UFC 193 delivered a knockout to Ronda Rousey during the second round. Did you watch the fight? Were you shocked? UFC president Dana White did reveal that a rematch will almost 100% be in the future.
Our boy Justin Bieber may be in a little hot water…again. This time the hot water doesn’t include a naked Bieber. JB told his fans that he personally signed 2000 copies of his brand new album ‘Purpose’ but his fans are calling him out because all the signatures are identical. You be the judge what do you think, man or machine?
If you are a One Direction fan I have some advice before you continue reading… sit down. Liam Payne was chatting with BBC radio 1 this week when he accidentally revealed that One Direction will be apart for two years. TWO WHOLE YEARS.
