I only found out yesterday. US news sources are too busy talking about some polar vortex junk.

Here in Canada we got distracted by Toronto's mayor being caught making racist jokes after he fell off the wagon again. Also polar vortex 2.

And PM Harper’s visit to Israel, complete with the various (entirely predictable) reactions to that and his speech to the Knesset.

NPR has been covering pretty decently.

Indeed, and Google News has had headline items for a while. I've heard about it here in the US at least 5x a day for the past few weeks.
