Here’s a roundup of news and other tidbits to get you started today.


1. Argos don't like the sound of Bon Jovi's Bills bid

Some two dozen CFL fans gathered in a downtown Toronto parking lot Sunday for a different kind of tail-gate party. The group, specifically Toronto Argonauts fans burned Bon Jovi CDs in protest of the band’s vocalist, Jon Bon Jovi, being part of a Toronto-based group bidding to buy the NFL’s Buffalo Bills team and possibly move them to the city.

Argos superfan and protest organizer David Knott said Toronto having an NFL team would spell the end of his favourite CFL team.

"If (an) NFL (team) came, the Argos would die instantly, (and) we’d lose a 141-year tradition,” Knott said. "We’re trying to make a point. We want Jon Bon Jovi to hear the message that we do not want (an NFL) team in Toronto."

4. Michael Brown's autopsy results release.

A preliminary private autopsy report found that Michael Brown, the black teen killed by a police officer in the suburban St. Louis city of Ferguson, was shot at least six times, the New York Times reported on Sunday night.

The bullets, some of which left as many as five wounds, did not appear to have been fired from very close range, the Times reported, because no gunpowder was detected on his body.

The results come as unrest continues in the city.
