  • Fort McMurray wildfire grows 8 times larger as battle continues (update as of 12:30MDT, May 5, 2016)

    Supercharged by winds of up to 70 km/h, the Fort McMurray wildfire ballooned to 85,000 hectares overnight and is now raging across a wide front south of the city. Alberta Premier Rachel Notley and wildfire officials say the fire is expected to continue to burn out of control today as more than 100 firefighters, 10 helicopters and 16 air tankers work to protect homes and critical infrastructure. One major task on Thursday will be to move up to 25,000 people now sheltering in oilsands work camps north of the city. The province hopes to transport many of those people, who...
  • Raging wildfire bears down on Canadian city as 88,000 flee

    A massive wildfire that has forced the evacuation of all 88,000 residents of the western Canadian city of Fort McMurray and burned down 1,600 structures has the potential to destroy much of the town, authorities said on Wednesday. Fort McMurray had been largely emptied of its residents by Wednesday afternoon, officials said, despite fuel shortages, snarled traffic and a highway closed by the flames in the northeastern part of the province of Alberta, the heart of Canada's oil sands region. So far there are no reports of fatalities, but crews had been unable to stop the wildfire, which has charred...

    A huge wildfire in Fort McMurray, Alta., destroyed an entire neighbourhood and burned homes and businesses in several others Tuesday, and continues to rage out of control. By late afternoon, the entire city of 60,000 had been ordered evacuated. Residents by the thousands fled the fire and for hours caused gridlock on Highway 63, even overwhelming oilsands work camps, where beds and meals were offered. Police were patrolling the highway with cans of gas, after fuel supplies ran out in Fort McMurray, Wandering River and Grasslands.

    Canada's government is doing a bad job of weeding out fraudulent citizenship applications and this means ineligible people can obtain Canadian passports, the country's top watchdog said on Tuesday. The findings could alarm U.S. critics already worried by what they say are the security risks posed by the new Liberal government's decision to quickly accept 25,000 Syrian refugees after taking power last November. Auditor General Michael Ferguson said in a report he had discovered a series of problems in the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship (IRC) department, which is responsible for making sure only eligible people can become Canadian nationals.

    (RNS) More than 50 conservative Catholic activists and political leaders have come out in support of Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz in an effort to shore up Catholic backing for Cruz as an alternative to Donald Trump. Among them is a priest from South Carolina who may be skirting the edges of his own churchís policies against clerics becoming involved in politics. Trump is currently leading the three-man GOP field and has drawn strong primary support from Catholic voters despite his controversial rhetoric and past stands on key issues like abortion rights, which he once supported.

This is in addition to the 25,000 he has already admitted. However, his plan for dealing with Islamic jihadists is not so much a plan to deal with Islamic jihadists as it is a plan to crack down on those who expose the lies of Islam and jihad.

    Canada's sloppy, rushed and reckless Syrian refugee resettlement program is America's looming national security nightmare. Donald Trump shouldn't just be promising to build a Mexican border wall. He (and any other sovereignty-minded presidential candidate) should be vowing to rebuild the decimated "wall" of first-line watchdogs, field enforcement and patrol officers on our northern border. The urgency could not be greater.

In effect, the Grits gain yet another big strategic advantage. And the Tories must now not simply delicately shimmy away from their Harper-era playbook, as they have been doing, but burn it outright.

    Considering how widespread these stories are across the United States these days, an incident in Canada may prove instructive for those debating the SJW’s demands for genderless public facilities and the intersection between those policies and traditional privacy concerns. The University of Toronto recently went down the same path being forced into place on American campuses, instituting unisex bathrooms, locker rooms and showers. What could possibly go wrong? They found out in short order. (The Daily Wire) The administration at the University of Toronto was recently enlightened on why two separate washrooms are generally established for men and women...

    When we last checked in on everyone's favorite Latin American socialist paradise, Venezuela, President Nicolas Maduroís opponents "had gone crazy." Or at least thatís how Maduro described the situation in a ďthunderingĒ speech to supporters at what he called an ďanti-imperialistĒ rally in Caracas in mid-March. Meanwhile, thousands of demonstrators had been holding counter-rallies calling for the Presidentís ouster. Maduro angered the opposition - which dealt Hugo Chavezís leftist movement its worst defeat at the ballot box in history in December - the previous month when he used a stacked Supreme Court to give himself emergency powers he says will...

    Republican delegates are not going to be likely to support either Donald Trump or Texas Sen. Ted Cruz when they get to the party's national convention in July, Ohio Gov. John Kasich said on Sunday. . . . "Here's what's interesting," Kasich said, suggesting that he was prepared to go down in history. "I am the second choice of both the Cruz people and also the Trump people. As you know, we've had 10 contested conventions, and only three times has the front-runner won. I don't want to go back in history too far, but I think old Honest Abe...

    "One boy yelled 'Muslims rule the world' while choking her daughter. School staff intervened, but to her knowledge, the students were not disciplined further." That could be Canada's epitaph. "Parents worried over school kids' brutality at Chebucto Heights Elementary School," Chronicle Herald, April 8, 2016: HALIFAX -- Concerned parents are reporting incidents of violence by refugee students at Chebucto Heights Elementary School. Reports of students choking, pushing, slapping and verbally abusing their fellow classmates are causing parents to worry about the school's disciplinary action.

    It has been a tough week for the hard left in Canada, and the lessons apply throughout the West. Green parties are not going anywhere in the polls. The public has caught on to the toxic individuals that run the parties and the movement in general, and they are not buying in. Snake oil sales are down. Nowhere was that more evident that in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan's election this past Monday. The resident Green Party received just 1.8% of the votes, its lowest share in nearly 15 years. Perhaps even more telling was the repudiation of the far...

    For the first time in its history the Royal Canadian Navy has successfully fired a ship-based precision missile at a target on land. The frigate HMCS Vancouver fired the missile last week off the coast of California during a joint training exercise with the U.S. navy. The Harpoon Block II missile is an improved version of the anti-ship missile carried by Canadian frigates for decades. Before the upgraded weapons system was installed, the only way for a frigate to attack a target on land was to use its 57-mm main gun, which has a range of only 17 kilometres, compared...

    Amid frosty relations, Ottawa is tackling a request from the Kremlin to go after a Ukrainian website, hosted in Canada, that is publishing identifying details of Russian soldiers fighting the Islamic State. The website, which bills itself as a community of volunteers, has posted pictures, Facebook profiles, and even passport information of dozens of Russian soldiers stationed ó semi-officially, unofficially, and secretly ó in Syria. Many of the posts place the Russian soldiers at specific points in the country, citing geotags and geographic features in the photos. The website says it is publishing the information in retaliation for Russia breaking...

    Former defense secretary Robert Gates laughed in an excerpted interview Friday while recalling the Obama administrationís inability to understand its military options during the 2011 Libya crisis. Special Report host Bret Baier interviewed Gates as part of a special airing Friday night called Rising Threats, Shrinking Military. Gates, a holdover from the George W. Bush administration who served under Obama from 2009 to 2011, sharply criticized aspects of the Obama White Houseís foreign policy in his 2014 memoir Duty. He became particularly upset when he discovered that White House staff members were ďtalking about military options with the president without...

    Rising tensions in France, especially in Paris following a series of Islamist terrorist attacks in 2015, have spurred an exodus of its super-wealthy citizens, a new report on migration trends of millionaires and high-net worth individuals across the world reveals. The report warns that other European countries, including the UK, Belgium, Germany and Sweden "where religious tensions are starting to emerge", will also see similar trends. Regarding a Brexit, the report suggests millionaires would want to stay in Britain even if it leaves the single currency bloc. The report was compiled by New World Wealth, an agency that gives information...

    MSNBC might have to build a deeper tank . . . so that Cokie Roberts can dive into it for Hillary. On today's Morning Joe, Roberts of NPR complained about the resources the FBI is devoting to the investigation of Hillary Clinton's misuse of email. Carped Cokie: "Don't they have other problems? There's no crime in the country they should be worrying about?" Roberts' timing could hardly have been worse. Just moments before, Joe Scarborough pointed out that last week it was revealed that 22 of the emails on Hillary's server "were so sensitive that the state department said releasing...
