Jeff Bridges was "at death's door" when he contracted Covid-19 while battling cancer. The 'Big Lebowski' actor - who has been in remission since September 2021 - was undergoing chemotherapy for non-Hodgkin lymphoma when he caught the respiratory illness in January 2021 and he was left struggling because the treatment he'd been having left him with "nothing to fight" off the virus.

He told E! News: "The chemo wipes out your immune system and when COVID hit me, I had nothing to fight it. "I was just really at death's door a couple of times there. " Jeff spent more than four months in hospital and feared he wouldn't be able to work again or even walk his daughter Haley, 36, down the aisle when she got married, so he feels fortunate the people around him stayed positive.

He said: "I remember the doctors saying to me, ‘Jeff, you gotta fight. ' "had no idea what they were talking about. I thought, ‘Man, I'm in surrender mode here. ' With a great medical team, great trainers and my family, everybody brought me back. " The 72-year-old star - who also has Isabelle, 41, and Jessie, 39, with wife Susan Geston - won't take his loved ones for granted following his brush with death.

He said: "Sue and I were looking at each other and we went, ‘How lucky are we?' I hug that girl and I get recharged. It's right there, so accessible. "I'm being conscious of stuff that's just right in front of me like love and my family and all of the stuff that's available for me.

Alberta’s Kenney urges Poilievre not to focus on ‘fringe issues’
Alberta Premier Jason Kenney says federal Conservative leader Pierre Poilievre needs to steer away from “fringe issues” if he aims to lead not only the party but the country.“He understands that to become prime minister, he needs to speak to the aspirations of regular Canadians, not to fringe issues.” Alberta’s premier-designate wants ‘greater’ provincial autonomy, but is it her 1st priority? Kenney also believes that Poilievre is “wise beyond his years.”“He’s a brilliant young man,” he said.According to a recent poll from the end of last month, Poilievre overtook Prime Minister Justin Trudeau as the best leader for the country.“Since the moment he was elected leader, he’s demonstrated great discipline in focusing on the kitchen-table issues that matter to ordinary Canadian families,” said Kenney.However, Poilievre has had a number of interactions with fringe movements in Canada.Most recently, a Global News analysis of 50 of Polievre’s official YouTube videos showed that they included a hidden tag appealing to a misogynistic online movement that Canada’s intelligence agencies view as a danger.The tag, #mgtow, is an acronym for “Men Going Their Own Way” — a mostly-online movement consisting of anti-feminists who cut women completely out of their lives.The Conservative leader has also drawn criticism for his support of the convoy protest that paralyzed downtown Ottawa and blockaded border crossings in February.Poilievre chose to walk with James Topp, an activist with connections to convoy figures who have marched across the nation to protest COVID-19 vaccine mandates.After posing for a photograph with Jeremy Mackenzie — the de-facto leader of a far-right group called Diagalon who was arrested on a Canada-wide warrant for

New controversial anti-corruption bill proposes to create commission, enabling it to make arrests without warrants
COLOMBO (News 1st) – The Ministry of Justice has introduced a new controversial anti-corruption bill that would see the creation of an independent commission that is empowered to carry out arrests without a warrant or a magesterial order, for officials who are suspected to have carried out an offence under the proposed anti-corruption act. The Minister of Justice, Wijeyadasa Rajapaksa, speaking to News 1st said that the bill was drafted based upon the UN convention against corruption, which has been ratified by Sri Lanka in 2004. The Minister said that the existing bribery and corruption commission does not have the power that is proposed in the current bill, while it is important to make the commission independent without any political party or any affiliations. In addition, the Minister said that it has been proposed to dissolve the existing laws with regard to assets and liabilities, which will be included within the proposed bill. Moreover, whistleblower rights will also be protected, the Minister said. According to the bill, any authorized officer of the Commission may without an order from a Magistrate and without a warrant arrest any person suspected of committing an offence under the provisions of this Act. The Minister emphasized that this is NOT a quasi-judicial power, as the Police too is able to arrest people without a warrant. Section (58)1 of the proposed bill highlights that "an authorised officer of the Commission may apply in writing to the High Court for a warrant authorizing the covert monitoring of any conduct and recording of any communication if such officer has reasonable grounds to suspect or believe that a person has committed, is committing or is about to commit an offence under this Act,".The
