The federal Competition Bureau is expanding its investigation into Ticketmaster to include the company’s secret scalping program revealed in a Toronto Star/CBC undercover investigation — amid new calls for accountability from politicians, music and sports fans across the continent.


Meanwhile, a Toronto law firm has launched a $250-million class action suit against Ticketmaster Canada, alleging the company’s practices engaged in “false or misleading misrepresentations” that violate the Competition Act.

Robert Cribb and Marco Chown Oved report in detail on the scandal that is becoming more cumbersome by the day for the ticketing giant. The investigative team’s story can be read in full on The Star web page here.

Shaq’s Classic Song ‘You Can’t Stop the Reign’ Featuring Biggie Is Finally on Streaming Services

There's a more explicit Biggie verse in the vault, according to the NBA legend.

Shaq’s classic with Biggie is finally available on streaming services. The news was broken by FakeShoreDrive on X earlier this week, and the Hall of Fame big man confirmed the news Thursday afternoon (June 13).

The year is 1996 and Shaquille O’Neal and the Notorious B.I.G. are two of the biggest figures in their respective fields. Shaq was entering the last year of his deal with the Orlando Magic before he headed west to the Los Angeles Lakers at the end of the 1995-1996 season. Biggie was getting ready to release his sophomore album, Life After Death, while in the throws of a beef with 2Pac. Big name-dropped the NBA player on the song “Gimme the Loot” off his debut album, Ready to Die, and the two had a mutual respect for each other ever since.
