Even with the heavy rainfall for much of today expected to continue intermittently overnight, we haven't broken any records yet.

Linda Libby of Environment Canada tells CHSJ News we always see quite a bit of rain in July.

The closest we've come to breaking a rainfall record set in 1973 this month was on July 23, when the record was 36.3 millimeters and we got 33.8.

Different Viewpoints Expressed At Anti-Sex Offender Rally

Pouring rain didn't stop another rally against sex offenders being released into the city from going ahead in King Square.

While many of the marchers were calling for a sex offender registry in the province, others weren't so sure about that idea . Elsie McGraw runs a group for survivors of childhood sexual abuse, and she tells CHSJ News she's afraid posting people's pictures in a registry could lead to vigilantism--and even confusion if someone resembles a known sex offender.

McGraw says for her the most important thing is to make people aware of the signs that an adult is abusing children.

Movies On The Big Screen In The South End

If you're a fan of going to the movies but don't like the pricey admission prices these days, here's a potential solution for you.

South End Cinema is a volunteer run effort. They're screening monthly movies in the uptown. Organizer Jody Kliffer tells CHSJ News since the Paramount closed there hasn't been much in the way of movies uptown.

Kliffer says their goal is to choose different films and show them in under-appreciated spaces. Brick walls,  in Queen Square, vacant lots and more have all been discussed as options.

The last movie was The Big Lebowski which was shown by donation at Interaction Children's Theatre. The next show is last Thursday in August. You can visit their Facebook group here for more details.
