Please help. Thanks.
Topic: may or might?

The fire was reminiscent of a deadly blaze that swept through the Santika in Bangkok in 2009. That fire, which may have been started by fireworks, killed 66 people.

Should it be "might" instead of "may"? If not, why is it so?

Thanks.

...Canada comes close as it has banned tobacco flavours and recently proposed to print health warnings on cigarette sticks.

Does "cigarette sticks" mean cigarettes?

Thanks.

The possibility of paying more than needed and an option for a refund may push unsuspecting recipients to click the link that would otherwise enable scammers with access to private information.

Shouldn't it be "that would enable scammers access to private information" instead?

Thanks.

Although no country has a plain cigarette policy, Canada comes close as it has banned tobacco flavours and recently proposed to print health warnings on cigarette sticks. Tobacco flavours are also banned in the UK, European Union and several African countries.

Whichever approach Singapore chooses to take, one thing is clear: It's time for a tobacco endgame in Singapore.

In the second paragraph, can "it's time" replace "It's time"?

Thanks.
Topic: Is the sentence grammatical?

The 33-year-old recounted his unpleasant experience in a Facebook post on Wednesday (Aug 3), saying that "This is the first time that I felt like I'm a foreigner."

Is the first "that" redundant? Is it grammatical?

Thanks.

Pelosi, second in line to the US presidency, was on the island for just 19 hours, but sparked a furious reaction from the Chinese government that escalated through the week.

Should it be "president" instead of "presidency"?

Thanks.

1. The present perfect also can indicate previous experiences.

Which is the correct sentence?

Topic: who vs whom

The judge pointed to the victim’s willingness to meet the defendant who she had just met late at night showed her trust in the defendant. She added that the defendant’s crime was serious and should be severely punished to set an example.

Should it be "whom" instead of "who'?

Thanks.
