Comedian Bill Cosby was in the Bahamas last night raising money for a local charity and polishing his image.

He cracked jokes and told tales of his upbringing in Philadelphia in a benefit for the Links, a women's service organization.

Meanwhile, a fourth woman has come forward with claims that Cosby sexually assaulted her. 

Florida nurse Therese Serignese alleged that the incident occurred 38 years ago.

A fifth woman, Carla Ferrigno, has told a radio interview that Cosby grabbed her and tried to kiss her in 1967. Ferrigno is the wife and manager of Lou Ferrigno, who starred in The Incredible Hulk.

All of the women's statements have been vigorously denied by Cosby's lawyer, who says these are "decades-old discredited allegations".

In late September 2014, the federal government announced a major new approach for dealing with aboriginal land claims.

The "laughably short consultation period" ends on November 30, according to the video above by IdleNoMoreMedia.

It comes in response to the Williams decision in the Supreme Court of Canada, which granted aboriginal title to the Tsilhqot'in First Nation.

Douglas Eyford is heading the consultation. That's the same Douglas Eyford named by Prime Minister Stephen Harper to generate support among First Nations for pipeline projects and other energy projects.

"Land-claim policy requires negotiating with First Nations to extinguish their rights and underlying title to their land," the video states. "The government calls this reconciliation."

Joy of Jazz is a three-concert series taking place at St. James Hall (3214 West 10th Avenue). The first concert, titled Heart & Soul, takes place November 27 at 7:30 p.m.

In the second set, Plato will be joined by Lebeck and Thomas in her band, with clarinetist James Danderfer as special guest.

As you've no doubt seen on social media, Burnaby RCMP today (November 20) moved in to arrest more than a dozen people protesting the Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project on Burnaby Mountain.

Vancouver photographer Jackie Dives was on hand to capture these dramatic photographs.

In the photos, you'll see protester Marija Brzev locked to a cement block with her mom watching over her, and David Suzuki's grandson Tamo Campos being led away by police.

While some folks might find it too early to partake in Christmas festivities before December, Vancouver will be getting a double-dose of holiday cheer this weekend. Both the Vancouver Christmas Market and CandyTown Festival take place downtown on Saturday (November 22).

The Vancouver Christmas Market kicks off a month-long run at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre Plaza (650 Hamilton Street) starting Saturday at 11 a.m. The outdoor event, now in its fifth year, is modeled after a classic German Christmas market. Revellers can check out handmade gifts, such as wooden toys, knitted goods, pottery, and nutcrackers, while sipping on mulled wine and apple cider.

Over a dozen Kinder Morgan pipeline protesters have reportedly been arrested today (November 20) on Burnaby Mountain.

Burnaby RCMP began enforcing an injunction this morning by removing protesters who refused to leave their camp.

The following photo tweets captured the scene.

So I was checking out my Twitter account on the commute home last night and I noticed that my number of followers had blasted up from 1435 to an impressive fourteen-hundred and thirty-six. My new follower was a guy named Niro Knox, who looked like a pretty rockin' dude.

So I took a gander at some of his tweets and found one labelled "Guitar Solo" that was a link to a year-old YouTube video he'd posted. It's just him riffing out on a goldtop Les Paul, but as he soon as he hit a note it reminded me of Gary Moore, so I immediately followed him back.

That is all.

Today (November 20) is the Transgender Day of Remembrance. It's a day to "memorialize those who were killed due to anti-transgender hatred or prejudice", according to the main TDoR website.

In Vancouver, members of the trans community and their allies will gather tonight at the Carnegie Community Centre (401 Main Street), starting at 7 p.m. Short documentaries will be screened, there'll be an open mic and speakers, and a candlelight vigil will be held at this event organized by the Vancouver Transgender Day of Remembrance Society.

At least four Kinder Morgan pipeline protesters camped out on Burnaby Mountain were arrested this morning (November 20), CBC News reports.

Burnaby RCMP warned the remaining protesters they could face arrest too if they didn't clear the area and take down their camp.

Couldn't make it out last night? You missed Los Angeles experimental musician-producer Flying Lotus at the Commodore. Lydia Reedeeah was there and caught a moment of the show on Instagram. Here’s your concert pic of the morning. Flying Lotus at the Commodore Ballroom on November 19, 2014. Thanks Lydia.
