Eyeless Congressional Candidate Isn’t Thrilled With Pete Davidson’s SNL Jokes
The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) released a statement on Sunday demanding an apology from Davidson. The joke, such as it was, was a flippant remark about Crenshaw having lost his eye "in war, or whatever".

Carp resident Carol McNally said the incident was upsetting, especially considering that another plane went down in the area in recent weeks.

Police walk on to a property as they work at the site of a small plane crash in the Carp area of Ottawa on November 4, 2018. The plane which crashed was a smaller one. The aircraft sustained minor damage. Ms. Harvey said the NTSB will be looking at the people involved, the two aircrafts and the weather as potential contributing factors.

The pilot of the aircraft, who was flying alone, was pronounced dead at the scene.
