The former White House communications director said the GOP could become "a minority party for a generation" because of Trump.
Victoria resident Fatima Lichty started selling her own homemade masks from a table in the driveway at her daughter's Victoria home and business was good, until there was a visit from Victoria Bylaw Services along with a potential fine of $275. "I would never intentionally break the law but I just can't understand it," said Lichty to host Kathryn Marlow on CBC's All Points West. Lichty had dusted off her sewing machine and made some masks for her family members, including her son-in-law who is immunocompromised. She started 'Mama's Masks' after her designs caught on with his coworkers. "They said they're so well-made, the colours are wild, and then he came and said, 'Would you make masks for my co-workers? They're willing to pay,'" she said. "I said, 'Oh boy. Go get material and we'll make masks!'"Lichty had her stall set up on the driveway for two Saturdays. Her daughter's house is across from the Moss Street Farmers' Market, in the city's Fairfield neighbourhood, and she said by the second week, she had sold out of her masks within a few hours. "I was so happy. Everyone was giving me compliments," she said.Unfortunately by the second week, Lichty said someone complained and a bylaw officer arrived, saying if the business continued, she would be issued a fine.A spokesperson for the City of Victoria told CBC in a statement that it encourages small scale entrepreneurship — with a licence."There are several licensing options for people who are looking to sell homemade products from their home or throughout the city, including applying for a home-based or market retail licence or the City's new mobile vending licence," it read. "It's an easy process: both of these licences can be applied for online or by contacting the City's Business Licensing staff."Lichty said she'll be looking into that process, even though it is disappointing to have her momentum slowed down."I love making people happy," said Lichty.

The last thing Emily Hunt remembers about the afternoon of May 10 2015 is enjoying lunch at her favourite restaurant with her father, who was visiting from Ireland. Over Italian food and wine, the pair chatted about Hunt's future plans. The then 36-year-old strategy consultant, originally from New York, had just finalised her divorce and was looking forward to a date with a lawyer the following evening. She also had an exciting job interview on the horizon. But just five hours later, Hunt woke up naked in a hotel bed next to a stranger, with no idea of how she got there. The events of that evening - which Hunt still struggles to piece together - would come to dominate her life, placing her at the centre of a battle with the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) that ultimately led to a change in prosecution policy. The exhausting five-year campaign, which derailed Hunt’s life and drove her to the brink of suicide, culminated on Friday with the landmark conviction of the man she found herself in bed with. He was named last week for the first time as 40-year-old Christopher Killick, who is unemployed and lives with his mother in Brent, northwest London. He pleaded guilty to voyeurism at Thames magistrates court after he admitted making a 62-second video for the purposes of sexual gratification, without Hunt’s consent. “It's pretty amazing,” Hunt says from her north London home. She has waived her right to anonymity and spoken widely about the case in an effort to stop anyone else going through the same nightmare. “Even a couple of days before I wasn't really convinced I'd see justice. I was pleasantly surprised with how seriously they took it in court on Friday.”
