Martin hit a deep fly ball to centre field that Willy Garcia had to play right to the wall. As the White Sox centre-fielder jumped up to catch the ball it bounced off the wall directly behind his glove and over. The shot drove in Troy Tulowitzki and helped the Toronto Blue Jays rally past the Chicago White Sox 7-3 on Sunday afternoon. "It …

    OTTAWA — The Trudeau government plans to cap the spring sitting of Parliament with long-awaited legislation on Access to Information and national security — bills unlikely to be debated by MPs in a serious way until the fall.  With just days left before MPs are slated to retreat to their ridings for the summer, the bills will — at the very least — signal the government's intention to fulfil key promises. The government had promised an initial wave of changes to the Access to Information Act…
