    Aleppo Siege: Syria Rebels Lose 60% of Territory Close to two-thirds of rebel-held areas of east Aleppo have now fallen to the Syrian government after another district was seized. A UK-based monitor said the Tariq al-Bab district fell on Friday, opening up a link between government-held areas and Aleppo's airport. Swathes of east Aleppo held by rebels have been seized by government troops and militiamen in the past three weeks. Some 250,000 people remain trapped in besieged areas of the city. Tens of thousands of people have been displaced. The United Nations this week said conditions in east Aleppo were...

    It has been so delightfully amusing, taking in all the mockery and wickedness that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau brought upon himself by having keened so plaintively last weekend upon hearing the news of the death of that gruesome old Cuban caudillo Fidel Castro. We’ve all had a good laugh. We should also strive to be fair. First, as wildly ill-advised as they were, nothing in Trudeau’s dolorous condolences would have been out of place had they been uttered at any gathering of fashionable society in Canada. Secondly, the Castros and the Trudeaus have been chummy for decades, so the dabbing...

    Early on Tuesday afternoon, the Prime Minister’s Office announced in a news release that U.S. Vice-President Joe Biden will visit Ottawa during Justin Trudeau’s meeting with the premiers—and the Canadians will throw a dinner in the veep’s honour. This was a quaint reminder of how foreign dignitary visits traditionally get announced and arranged. It came a few hours after a reminder of how deals and diplomacy will get done in Trumpworld—with all the pomp and circumstance of a couple of phone calls and back-slaps.

    Wasn't one vapid pretty boy named Justin from Canada enough? At least Justin Bieber is eye candy without the heartburn. Justin Trudeau, on the other hand, is the twinkly-eyed boy toy who makes informed adults wanna hurl. For more than a year, the liberal Canadian prime minister enjoyed drool-stained global press coverage as the "hot hipster" and "dreamy sex symbol" with great hair and a tribal Haida tattoo. He basked in Ryan Gosling-esque memes about his commitment to feminism and touched off "Trudeau-mania" with a series of shirtless selfies and photobombs. But this weekend, the sane world saw the baby-faced...

    Fidel Castro’s recent death evoked conflicting assessments of his legacy from world leaders, but college students are no more prepared than prime ministers to justify their support for the Cuban dictator. President-Elect Donald Trump, for example, referred to Castro as a “brutal dictator,” whereas Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called him a “remarkable leader.” In order to gauge millennial feelings on the passing of the authoritarian Cuban leader, Campus Reform asked students at American University which political figure they viewed more favorably: Castro or Trump. While several students identified the repressive elements of Castro’s regime, such as jailing and murdering...

    A video of an enormous polar bear in Canada gingerly patting a chained sled dog hit the Internet last week and quickly went viral. The Huffington Post lauded its “cuteness factor.” The man who shot the video praised the bear for showing “that kind of heart toward another animal.” But reality soon intervened. Canada’s CBC News reported that officials had removed three polar bears from the same property in Churchill after one killed and ate another dog. The owner of the site, who raises the sled dogs, told the network that the slaughter had occurred on “the only day we...

Atencio, an MSNBC correspondent, discussed the reactions of Cuban-Americans to the news over the weekend of Castro’s death. “Many Cuban-Americans here in the political epicenter of this community in Miami telling me this morning they cannot believe some of the world reaction from figures like Justin Trudeau and Jill Stein about Fidel Castro,” Atencio said on...

Ottawa quarterback Henry Burris threw an 18-yard touchdown to Ernest Jackson in overtime. Calgary, who got the ball second, could not equalize, giving Ottawa its first CFL title since 1976, when they were called the Rough Riders. Burris led the charge with 461 yards passing and three touchdowns. He added two more touchdowns on the ground.

Trudeau caught flak on social media after expressing "deep sorrow" for Castro, whom he called a "remarkable leader." Cruz and Rubio, who are of Cuban descent, released their own statements ripping the deceased leader. “Is this a real statement or a parody? Because if this is a real statement from the PM of Canada it is shameful & embarrassing,” Rubio tweeted, linking to Trudeau's statement on Castro's death. “Disgraceful," Cruz tweeted of Trudeau's remarks.

Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and British Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn have already beclowned themselves on that front. They were merely the first. Our own President Barack Obama opted for washing his hands, choosing to neither praise Castro after his death Friday, nor to condemn the tragedy his communist dictatorship has inflicted on the Cuban people for 57 years. “History will record and judge the enormous impact of this singular figure on the people and world around him,” said Obama playing Pilate.

    Common sense is running strong in Ottawa as the Canadian Ministry of Defense has decided to move forward with negotiations for 18 Boeing Super Hornets as an interim fighter solution. We reported on this plan last June while it was still in the works. Now Defense Minister Sajjan has made it policy, along with other steps that will be taken to revitalize Canada’s overstretched tactical air power capabilities. The purchase will bolster Canada’s aging Hornet fleet while the competition to replace Canada’s roughly 75 CF-18s gets underway. It is estimated that the competition, which Sajjan said will be “wide open,”...

But since Donald Trump was elected president, city officials are instead fielding questions about whether the cards could put those same people at greater risk of being deported. The city has vowed to protect cardholders’ personal records and might even delete them using a kind of self-destruct provision that allows for the information to be destroyed at the end of the year.

The only sure way to get the public to that point is to drive up national anxiety to such a level as the common refrain becomes “all sins must be forgiven”. The Obama/Clinton ideological escape plan requires the building of a national narrative of forgiveness. If they succeed President Donald Trump would be less able to hold them accountable.

    America's neighbors to the North are less than thrilled with the idea of celebrities moving to their country in the wake of Donald Trump's win on Tuesday. A number of Canadians have taken to social media to speak out against stars like Lena Dunham and Miley Cyrus who said they would relocate if Trump defeated Hillary Clinton. Dr. Winder Gill of Toronto posted a picture of a man building an igloo and wrote: 'This is Canada building an igloo wall between the US, just in case. I'll bet you regret all of those jokes now, eh?' He then added: 'When...

    Bad news for anyone looking to relocate to our neighbor to the north after last night’s election results: Canada doesn’t want you. After Americans—and especially American celebrities—began considering making good on their promises to “move to Canada” in the wake of Donald Trump election victory, Canadians took to Twitter to warn Americans that they’d best stay where they are. They’re even talking about building their own wall—to keep immigrants from American out of their pristine cities and away from their mounted law enforcement, gravy and cheese covered French fries, superior hockey coverage and French Sesame Street. Even CBC, Canada’s state-owned...

    The flood of Trump-fearing American liberals sneaking across the border into Canada has intensified in the past week. The Republican presidential campaign is prompting an exodus among left-leaning Americans who fear they’ll soon be required to hunt, pray, pay taxes, and live according to the Constitution. Canadian border residents say it’s not uncommon to see dozens of sociology professors, liberal arts majors, global-warming activists, and “green” energy proponents crossing their fields at night. “I went out to milk the cows the other day, and there was a Hollywood producer huddled in the barn,” said southern Manitoba farmer Red Greenfield, whose...

    ... This morning, I woke my daughter to tell her what had happened. That the world she felt comfortable in when she went to bed had shifted on its axis and this morning was a very different place. That my assurances the American electorate was too mature, too sensible, to elect a demagogue and serial prevaricator to the most important political position in the world, were in shreds.

    Canada’s ambassador to Washington said Wednesday that Canada is open to renegotiating the North American Free Trade Agreement if that’s what President-elect Donald Trump wants. Ambassador David MacNaughton, on a conference call with journalists, said free trade on lumber, long an irritant, would be one of the first things he’d like to see if there’s a new agreement. He noted that the U.S. is Canada’s largest trading partner and Canada is the largest trading partner for the U.S. “We’re ready to come to the table,” he said. …
  • Canadian dollar stems overnight losses as reality of Trump presidency sinks in

    Canada’s dollar took a wild ride in overnight trading in the midst of Donald Trump‘s U.S. presidential victory, shedding nearly 1.3 cents before stemming some of its losses. The loonie tanked on global markets, falling as low as 73.89 cents US on Wednesday at around 12 a.m. ET, down 1.27 cents from its close Tuesday. It later regained some ground, trading at 74.38 cents US, not far off the levels it’s been at in the waning weeks of the U.S. presidential election campaign.

    Hillary Clinton voters totally freaking out about election night results are, apparently, looking to relocate as soon as possible. Immigration Canada’s website has had so many requests in the early hour that the site completely crashed, giving its users an error message. Progressives and Democrats across America are finding themselves disappointed a second time as Canada’s Citizenship and Immigration Bureau simply cannot handle the number of requests for asylum from a Donald Trump Presidency. https://twitter.com/MrPlebabe/status/796197258484207616

    The website to apply for immigration to Canada was intermittently down Tuesday night as Donald Trump performed strongly in the election. Lefty celebrities from singer Barbra Streisand to Breaking Bad’s Bryan Cranston have repeatedly threatened they would renounce their U.S. citizenship and apply for status in Canada if GOP candidate Trump were elected president.

    Canada’s official website providing information on immigration and citizenship has been experiencing repeated outages, presumably due to a surge in traffic as Donald Trump grabbed an early lead in the US presidential race.

    There have been more than 10,000 incidents of classified or secure documents being improperly left or stored since Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's government came to office. According to a document quietly tabled in the House of Commons, the highest number of incidents took place in Public Services and Procurement Canada, which reported 2,912 cases of documents not handled according to the security level dictated for the documents between Nov. 4, 2015, and Sept. 19, 2016. The Global Affairs Department was a close second with 2,712 incidents. The Canadian Security Intelligence Service, Canada's spy agency, came third with 659 cases. The...
