Associated Press Trump pressed aides on Venezuela invasion, US official says
Washington might indeed have not entirely given up on an idea of an intervention, or at least a military coup in Venezuela. The allies present consisted of Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos , two Colombian diplomats, and the source official.

The RCMP says via its Facebook page that a press conference will be held at 3pm Eastern time with more details.

"Every piece of information was carefully examined", said Williams. "Our investigators were thorough in their systematic analysis of this evidence", Williams said.

The Humboldt Broncos released a statement Friday saying the organization has faith in the justice system and will be watching as the court process unfolds.

RCMP officials met with families of the Broncos Friday morning - some in Saskatoon, others in Edmonton, and the rest via video stream - to inform them of the investigation results and the arrest.

In the days following the crash, a GoFundMe page raised over $16.5 million for the families affected by the tragedy.
