This Beyoncé Wax Figure Will Have You Doing A Double Take

Madame Tussauds Berlin just unveiled their latest wax figure of Beyoncé, and this one is gonna make you do a double take.

In a video posted to the museum’s Instagram account over the weekend, Madame Tussauds shared a look at the super-life-like rendition of Bey on display now at their Berlin, Germany location. The figure, complete with the singer’s signature wave blonde locks featured Beyoncé, hand on hip, in a black and white minidress, reminiscent of a look worn on her Lemonade tour. The museum paired the dress with a pair of matching thigh-high boots.

The figure is not only spot on, it gets Bey down right to the little details, including her earrings and white manicured nails. Bey is on display in one of the museum’s mirrored exhibits under a sign that reads “Berlin, I love you,” in German.

“Surprise! 🔥 Yesterday in Dubai, today in Berlin! ✈️ Queen B is coming to Madame Tussauds Berlin just in time for the start of the winter holidays! 🎊,” the museum wrote. ” Berlin loves you! do you love beyoncé ❤️ Book your online tickets now and visit Bey!.”

The figure is one of a handful made of the “CUFF IT” singer in recent years. In 2019, Madame Tussauds Las Vegas debuted an epic wax figure in tribute to Beyoncé’s iconic April 2018 Coachella performance.

The figure featured Queen Bey’s hot pink crop sweatshirt and booty shorts look from her headlining show. Much like Berlin’s figure, Bey’s hair is pulled up into a half ponytail with curls, just like the singer rocked when she hit the stage.

The wax museum also placed a group of the GRAMMY winner’s dancers around the statue in one shot.

Murder trial in Halifax hears key witness describe gruesome details of crime scene

The William Sandeson first-degree murder trial has been told Taylor Samson’s DNA has been found on a bullet lodged inside a window frame in Sandeson’s Halifax apartment. As Callum Smith reports, Thursday’s testimony follows a mid-trial instruction for jurors to only base their opinions and decisions on evidence heard inside the courtroom.

The grisly aftermath of an alleged fatal shooting was described today during the murder trial of a former medical student accused of killing a fellow student in Halifax seven years ago.

William Sandeson, who at the time was a med student and track athlete, has pleaded not guilty to the first-degree murder of Dalhousie University physics student Taylor Samson.

The Crown alleges Samson had gone to Sandeson’s apartment to sell him nine kilograms of marijuana when the accused shot him on the night of Aug. 15, 2015.

Key witness Justin Blades — another former Dalhousie student and track athlete who knew Sandeson — testified he was visiting a friend in a neighbouring apartment when the two young men heard a gunshot.

Blades said that within seconds, Sandeson knocked at their door and was allowed in, and the three men headed for Sandeson’s apartment to see what was going on.

Blades told the jury that from the doorway of Sandeson’s apartment, he saw a tall man slumped forward in a kitchen chair, his head almost between his knees _ and there was blood pouring from wounds he could not see.

He said he also saw a growing pool of blood on the floor, as well as money on the kitchen table and the floor.

B.C. government provides live update on 3-year drug decriminalization trial

The B.C. government will provide an update Monday on the three-year trial for drug decriminalization.

Starting Tuesday, adults with up to two-and-a-half grams of drugs for personal use, including opioids, cocaine and MDMA, will not be arrested or charged.

The goal is to reduce the shame and stigma surrounding drug use, which the province says keeps people from accessing life-saving services.

Since 2016, toxic drugs have killed almost 11,000 people in B.C.

One expert told Global News that decriminalization is a positive step but more needs to be done.

“It should be accompanied by better access to legal, medical-grade, non-pharmaceutical-grade drugs,” Dr. Jade Boyd, a scientist with the BC Centre on Substance Use Research, said. “When we’re buying on an illegal market, nothing’s assured in regards to the quality and the quantity of the drug so deaths will continue to increase if people continue to buy on the illegal market.”

Boyd is also critical of the limit of two-and-a-half grams, saying it does not reflect the realities of drug use and purchase practices.

“There needs to be a further expansion of harm reduction and treatment services — without those, it’s not going to do much,” she added.

Global News also spoke to a former drug user who said illicit drugs should not be available on the street, period.

“It needs to be taken off the street altogether, put in the hands of doctors, addiction workers or whatever, and do it the right way,” Shawna Taylor said. “Because these toxic drugs are gonna be the same.”

The province will be providing an update at 10 a.m. PT. That will be livestreamed above and on BC1.

Canadian doctors spend 18.5 million hours on unnecessary paperwork, says new report

Health care access for all is something Canadians expect, but hospitals can’t keep up. Nova Scotian Allison Holthoff died while waiting more than six hours to be seen by a doctor in emergency care. Now, her husband, Gunter, says something needs to change. ‘The West Block’ guest host David Akin sat down with Dr. Michael Howlett, president of the Canadian Association of Emergency Physicians, and Dr. Alika Lafontaine, president of the Canadian Medical Association, to talk about what’s needed to save Canada’s healthcare system.

A new report from the Canadian Federation of Independent Business says Canadian doctors spend 18.5 million hours per year on unnecessary administrative work.

Laura Jones, an executive vice-president with the federation and co-author of the report released today, says these hours are the equivalent of about 55.6 million doctor visits.

Jones says the report, titled “Patients before Paperwork,” highlights an often overlooked burden doctors face while caring for patients.

The report also highlights Nova Scotia as a “standout” province in trying to reduce red tape in medicine.

Dr. Leisha Hawker, president of Doctors Nova Scotia, says her group has been working with the provincial government since 2019 to identify paperwork redundancies and shorten medical forms.

Hawker says reducing paperwork can improve patient care and reduce physician burnout.

OPP officer exposed to drugs during vehicle search on Highway 7 east of Peterborough, Ont.

An OPP officer was taken to hospital after being exposed to drugs during a search of a vehicle on Highway 7 east of Peterborough, Ont., on Saturday afternoon.

According to Peterborough County OPP, around noon, officers responded to reports of a suspected impaired driver on Highway 7 in Otonabee-South Monaghan Township.

Police located the suspect vehicle and conducted a traffic stop. Officers determined the driver was under the influence of drugs.

A search of the vehicle led to the seizure of a quantity of fentanyl and methamphetamine.

Police say during the search, one officer suffered an exposure to the drugs and was taken to hospital. The officer has since been released, OPP said Monday.

Brandon Orrett, 30, of Gilmour, Ont., was arrested and charged with impaired driving (alcohol and drugs) and possession of a Schedule 1 substance (other drugs).

Refrigerated outdoor ice rink could be coming to Dorval with $8M price tag

Dorval is getting a new refrigerated ice rink and it will be the first of its kind in Montreal.

The city of Dorval could soon be getting a brand-new refrigerated ice hockey rink.

The proposed facility is estimated to cost $8 million and would be located next to the newly-renovated Edgar Rouleau arena.

“People are ecstatic, as they should be. I think this will serve the Dorval population and the entire West Island,” Dorval spokesperson Sébastien Gauthier said.

The covered structure will be the first of its kind on the island of Montreal, according to the city.

Built completely to National Hockey League standards, the rink will measure 60.96 metres in length and 26 metres in width.

While many residents are sharpening their skates in anticipation of the new rink, some remain on edge, like resident Peter Oland.

The proposed location for the project has raised concern for neighbouring residents of Thorncrest Avenue, where Oland resides.

The chosen site is currently being used as a green space, home to soccer fields.

“I coach my kids on those fields. I watch kids run up and down those fields both in organized and recreational activities,”  Oland said at council.

Oland says he and others question why the city did not hold public consultations.

Added noise and lights from the new attraction, Oland says, will definitely be an issue for homes whose backyards face the rink.

“My backyard is going to be everyone’s playground,” Oland said.

Dorval Mayor Marc Doret defended the project, saying refrigerated rinks are “the future” as winters become warmer and shorter.

Addressing the concerns, Doret said the positioning of the rink has since changed to mitigate the noise with the single wall facing homes.

According to architectural drawings, the rink will have an open concept, with one wall and wooden pillars on three sides.

Trees and shrubbery will also be added in the park between the rink and the homes to insulate the sounds, Doret said.

“This is a very popular project. This was a no-brainer for us to go forward with such a facility because it answers a lot of needs and demands from residents,” Gauthier said.

The new outdoor facility would allow skating from November until March, according to the city.

During the warmer months, the space could be used for other recreational activities.

Dorval city council is expected to vote on the proposed project in March.

If approved, the refrigerated rink could be up and running in time for the next winter season, Gauthier said.
