5 things you need to know this morning: June 6, 2023

Start your day off right with five things you need to know this morning.

Five things you need to know

1. Four confirmed dead after Virginia plane crash Sunday

The recovery of wreckage from a private plane that crashed in Virginia on Sunday is expected to begin today. All four people on board are confirmed to have died and the crash is being blamed on the pilot becoming unresponsive. Investigators are considering whether hypoxia, a potentially deadly condition caused by lack of oxygen, is the reason those on board didn’t respond to officials as the plane floated over DC.

2. The PGA Tour and LIV Golf have merged

One of the most bizarre few months in professional golf history have seemingly started to end as the PGA Tour and LIV Golf announced a merger today. The two combative tours, along with the DP World Tour, will form a new commercial entity to unify golf. It comes around a year after PGA players started to leave the tour, and get banned on their way out, to take increased money and less playing time on the new LIV circuit.

3. Anna Shay of ‘Bling Empire’ fame dies at 62

A member of the hit Netflix show “Bling Empire” has died. Anna Shay died from a stroke at the age of 62, her family confirmed on Monday. “Bling Empire” is often described as the real-life “Crazy Rich Asians” and follows the day-to-day life of several ultra-wealthy Asian American Los Angeles socialites. Shay’s co-stars paid tribute to her through social media posts on Monday.

4. The tabloids destroyed my childhood, Prince Harry says

Prince Harry testified in court on Tuesday in an attempt to hold Britain’s tabloid press accountable for its “destructive” role throughout his life. However, he couldn’t seem to recall any specific examples when pressed by a newspaper’s lawyer. The Duke of Sussex became the first senior member of the royal family to testify in court in more than a century.

5. Bank of Canada’s pause on interest rates may end soon

Speculation is growing that the Bank of Canada is getting ready to start raising lending rates again. The central bank hit pause on hikes in January after hiking its benchmark interest rate repeatedly in 2022. Central bank governor Tiff Macklem said the pause is conditional and depends on whether the economy develops as the bank thinks it will.
