Jimmy Connors is the other male player to reach the 100 title milestone, and he ended his career on 109 titles. I'd be happy with 100 (match) wins... "It all started as a junior world champion". "It's been great.

The fact that Wilson-Raybould was a respected and principled Indigenous cabinet member, who appears to have been removed from her role as attorney general because she refused to cave to political pressure from the PMO, only makes a bad situation even worse.

Wilson-Raybould testified on Wednesday that when she was justice minister past year, officials in the Liberal government leaned on her to help construction firm SNC-Lavalin Group Inc avoid a corruption trial.

"Given the subsequent chain of events that include portions of conversations that reference huge pressure and political interference and the subsequent removal of the former attorney general and justice minister from the position. there is reason to believe that pressure and interference did occur", the letter says.
