The holidays are here — and that means a look back at the year’s most-watched videos, including an appearance by Justin Trudeau, and it’s an opportunity to support diverse Canadian businesses.

Plus two ‘star’ sightings in the GTA, including a meteor flash and Aquaman himself!

PM Justin Trudeau makes YouTube’s most-watched videos of 2020

A time we will never forget during this pandemic — the moment Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said “moistly.”

The moment is also one of YouTube’s most-watched videos of 2020.

Out of this world — a meteor flash stretched across the GTA

Physics and astronomy professor at York University, Paul Delaney, said that flash in the sky during the week was most likely a meteor!

He said when a meteoroid enters Earth’s atmosphere and vaporizes, it turns into a meteor, causing the air around it to glow because of the heat.

That’s not the end of the show — a meteor shower is expected to peak during the evenings of December 13 or 14.

Jason Momoa spotted enjoying food at another restaurant in the GTA

Jason Momoa has been seen all over the city while he films his latest movie — and most recently — spotted enjoying some food at a restaurant that specializes in chicken fingers in Parkdale.

Aquaman himself even posed for photos for social media.

Momoa also gave Ozzy’s Burgers in Kensington Market a shout out online as well.
