Northerners face the highest rates of food insecurity in Canada. A receipt from a recent shopping trip in Iqaluit illustrates the problem.

Eye-popping grocery prices are a growing concern for northerners, who face the highest rates of food insecurity in Canada despite annual subsidies under the Nutrition North Canada program (NNC). Kyra Flaherty, a working mother from Iqaluit, has used TikTok to highlight the problem. She shared this receipt from a recent shopping trip to NorthMart, the supermarket chain many northerners rely upon for groceries.

Court Declares Bow Wow IS The Father Of 1-Year-Old Stone Kamin As Mother Seeks Child Support

Court Declares Bow Wow IS The Father Of 1-Year-Old Stone Kamin As Mother Seeks Child Support

After a messy back-and-forth over a child’s paternity, the courts have declared that Bow Wow is indeed the father.

Bow Wow wasn’t always opposed to having another child. In September 2020, it was the rapper himself who suggested that he was a father for the second time, and it was later revealed that the mother of the child was a model named Olivia Sky.

The pair kept their co-parenting private and not long after, Bow was even sharing photos of his little boy. However, Olivia would soon complain on her Instagram Story about neglectful parents, which had many fans assume she was speaking about Bow Wow.

Last month, Bow took part in a Twitter Q&A session with fans, where he suggested that Stone was not his son.

When one fan asked how he stays motivated, the Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta star replied simply, “Shai.”

Another fan went on to ask, “do you want more children?” which also prompted Bow Wow to respond with answers specifically about his daughter.

“Hell no, I’m fine with Shai,” he responded. And when one fan asked, “Don’t you have a son?” the father responded with, “[Now playing] Billie Jean for the 2nd time.”

Unfortunately for Bow, it looks like he was wrong, according to a screenshot of the court documents shared by The Neighborhood Talk this week, showing that it has been proven that he IS Stone’s father.

“It is the Judgment of this Court that the Child of the parties, STONE KAMIN (“Child”) born in 2020 is hereby declared to be the legitimate son of Respondent, Shad Moss, capable of inheriting from Respondent in the same manner as if born in lawful wedlock,” the document reportedly reads. “The Child shall hereafter be known as STONE MOSS and the Department of Vital Statistics shall show the Child’s birth certificate to include Respondent as father.”

The documents go on to say that the actor will get to see the child every weekend, per their new custody agreement.

Reeling in post-engagement bliss! Kourtney Kardashian, 42, and Travis Barker, 45, are having a whirlwind week after Travis popped the question on Sunday, and now, they’re sharing some details about their upcoming wedding plans.

So have the lovebirds set a date? According to our source, Kourtney and Travis are “still playing around with a few dates” for their walk down the aisle, also “bouncing around a couple of ideas” in terms of location. “Due to Travis’s fear of flying, it likely won’t be a far away destination wedding,” the source added, noting how the two just wanted to “enjoy their special day.”
Following the news of their whirlwind engagement, a source close to the KarJenners revealed to HL that the family, including Kourtney’s three children, were beyond thrilled. Kourtney shares Mason, 11, Penelope, 9, and Reign, 6, with ex-boyfriend Scott Disick. “The kids are super happy about this, as is Kourtney’s entire family,” the source said.

“They adore Travis and they love their blended family,” the source continued, adding that Travis treats his wife-to-be’s children “like his own.” The fact that Travis is “extremely hands on” and a “good father” to his children, whom he shares with ex-wife Shanna Moakler, is “one of the things that attracted” Kourtney most to him, the insider added.

Travis popped the question on a beautiful beach in Montecito, California with a stunning oval diamond ring designed by Lorraine Schwartz, who revealed that the musician was involved in the creation of the stone. “I worked on it with Travis and he was a really big part of it,” the designer told PEOPLE following the engagement news. “He was really hands-on in the whole making of it. It’s gorgeous and they’re happy.”

Sources tells HollywoodLife exclusively that Travis Scott has been going ‘above and beyond’ for Kylie Jenner during her second pregnancy. Get more details here.

Travis Scott has “been a rock” for Kylie Jenner during her second pregnancy, sources have revealed exclusively to HollywoodLife. The couple, who also share daughter Stormi, 3, together, confirmed they were expecting baby number two in September; and according to a source close to the rapper, 30, Travis has been very hands on.

“Travis knows that Kylie has a lot on her plate and is handling everything like a boss even while she’s pregnant,” the source told HL. “Although he’s always there for his daughter, he’s made sure to take an extra hand in caring for Stormi so Kylie can get as much rest as she needs.” The Grammy-nominated artist has been joining the Kylie Cosmetics founder, 24, on doctors visits and taking  a “completely active role,” per the source.

“He asks the doctors questions during the visits because he wants to be looped in through every step of this process,” the source explained. “He’s been a rock for Kylie and they can’t wait to bring another child into this world.” A second source close to Kylie has added that she “loves how attentive” Travis has been, revealing that the rapper has been going “above and beyond” for his growing family.

“Although they’ve been down this road before with Stormi, Travis is literally going above and beyond, especially with Kylie juggling her many business ventures,” the source said. “He’s always been a very hands on father, which is why Kylie wanted to have another baby with him.” The source added, “She knows that Travis is really excited to be expanding their family because he absolutely loves fatherhood.”

The on-again, off-again couple split in 2019 after two years of dating, one year after they welcomed daughter Stormi in February 2018. While the two have never publicly confirmed if they were back together amidst news of baby number two, a source told HL in September that Kylie and Travis are “madly in love” after they sparked reconciliation speculation at a public event in June.

“Kylie and Travis have a great relationship. They’re together and madly in love, but it’s enigmatic,” the source said. “Travis and Kylie truly get along and have such respect for each other. They want the best for each other and for Stormi. Kylie has always wanted to expand her family as she loves being a mother, so she is super happy to be pregnant.”
