    Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is refusing to say what he knew — and when he knew it — about a dismissed, non-felony charge against his choice for Governor General. Julie Payette is calling the six-year-old incident a case of an "unfounded" allegation for which she was "immediately cleared" without any prosecution. The second-degree assault charge doesn't appear in Maryland court records, but is accessible through American-based background check websites that provide the charge, dates, case number, location and reason for its dismissal. It provides no further details about the reasons for the charge.... ...Meanwhile, media reports surfaced late Wednesday that...

    "It's just luck that they [victims] weren't more seriously injured," said Carver. "We've got video of the truck on fire. It's a horrific scene and I can tell you the Winnipeg Police Service has devoted all of the resources that we can to tying this up." It is "incredibly alarming" that an IED was out there and injured four people, he said. "It's obvious that it was designed for maximum effect, to create what it did in that vehicle. Was it designed to do that with an intended victim? I simply don't have that information at this point," Carver said....

    BUCKHORN , ONTARIO — Outside Dave and Ann Bowen’s cottage at Six Foot Bay, Buckhorn Lake shimmers in the early morning sunlight. It has rained so hard in the past four days that some of the docks — in front of each of the 16 cottages that line the shore — are immersed. The Bowens have just finished celebrating Canada’s 150th birthday alongside their adult children and nine grandchildren — all spread out between three adjacent cottages. Dave is a recently retired school teacher and principal, and Ann is a recently retired nurse. Although they love their country deeply, they...

    Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says he did not reach out to Tabitha Speer in the wake of his government's decision to apologize and compensate Omar Khadr. Speaking to reporters in Rhode Island after delivering the keynote speech at the National Governors Association conference on Friday, Trudeau also would not comment on reports former prime minister Stephen Harper called both Speer and wounded U.S. soldier Layne Morris after the settlement became public. "I did not reach out and I have no comment on what the former prime minister did," he said. Earlier this month, the federal government formally apologized to Canadian-born...

    Canadians across the country have been reaching into their wallets to donate money to the family of an American soldier whom Omar Khadr is accused of killing in Afghanistan 15 years ago. The online fundraising effort – part political protest, part generosity – comes amid a furor over the $10.5 million sources said the federal government paid Khadr for breaching his rights while he was an American prisoner at Guantanamo Bay.

    Justin Trudeau has been a vocal advocate on women’s issues. Our Prime Minister has been praised, both here and abroad, for his efforts to advance equality among men and women. He’s been particularly effective advocating for the United Nations and other governments to do more to help women living in violent or oppressive conditions, particularly women in those parts of the world subjected to barbaric practices such as female genital mutilation or child and forced marriages. We could not be more supportive of this sort of advocacy. Canada can and should play a leadership role in advancing initiatives that foster...

    Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has told governors from across the US to ditch the "America First" motto. His National Governors' Association speech in Rhode Island on Friday was a first for a Canadian prime minister. In his speech, Mr Trudeau urged US governors to embrace their neighbour to the north and avoid protectionism. It is all a part of his aggressive strategy to promote a "thinner border" ahead of vital trade talks with the US renegotiating the Nafta treaty. President Donald Trump has made "America First" his mantra, shaping his policies on trade and immigration. But Mr Trudeau, who is...

    A fight that broke out early Sunday morning at a Pizza Pizza and posted on YouTube began with a complaint that an order was taking too long, a witness told the Star. Paul Michael, 23, was at the restaurant when the brawl began at around 2 a.m. He said it started when a woman entered the restaurant on Queen St. E., at Broadview Ave., and complained that her pizza order was late. “They didn’t call her to tell her it was ready so in the middle of the Pizza Pizza, she started screaming how she wasn’t satisfied,” Michael said. “She...

    The Trudeau government is dismissing severe criticism from the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops over the administration’s linkage of foreign aid with abortion funding. Trudeau’s, development minister, Marie-Claude Bibeau, called abortion a “tool to end poverty” in an interview with CTV News. The bishops’ president, Douglas Crosby, had written to Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland on June 29, condemning the Liberal government’s equating “women’s rights with the right to abortion and ‘sexual reproductive rights'” and asked why the federal government was insisting that these “rights are at the core of Canadian foreign policy.” Crosby continued: “Has Canada forgotten that...

    SAN FRANCISCO — In what one aviation expert called a near-miss of what could have been the largest aviation disaster ever, an Air Canada pilot on Friday narrowly avoided a tragic mistake: landing on the San Francisco International Airport taxiway instead of the runway. Sitting on Taxiway C shortly before midnight were four airplanes full of passengers and fuel awaiting permission to take off, according to the Federal Aviation Administration, which is investigating the “rare” incident. An air traffic controller sent the descending Air Canada Airbus 320 on a “go-around” — an unusual event where pilots must pull up and...

    'It has just shattered me. I am broken' Canada is now fining its citizens for offending people of the Islamic faith. John Alabi, 53, is a Christian and a landlord who lives in the Toronto area and is being ordered to pay a fine of $12,000 by the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal because he failed to remove his shoes when he entered the apartment he was renting to a Muslim couple. His crime? Religious discrimination, according to the tribunal. The tenants were planning to move out of his rental home, and he says he gave the couple the required 24-hours...

    Irony so thick, you need a shovel for it and perhaps an ice ax. In May, an expedition that set out to gather global warming evidence in the Arctic was forced to call it off. Why? Because the ice was too thick and the icebreaker was needed to rescue other ships. So much for that whole ‘global warming’ thing. The research vessel Amundsen was redirected by the Canadian Coast Guard to clear fishing lanes for boats and supply vessels. That includes the dreaded ‘oil tankers’. “The Science Team of the Canadian Research Icebreaker CCGS Amundsen has canceled the first leg...

    The upcoming NAFTA trade discussions between the U.S., Mexico and Canada will be more interesting, and far more consequential, than any trilateral trade discussion in our lifetime. We can anticipate dozens of congressional masks to drop each day as the tentacles of their financial interests and corporate donors will gain a level of sunlight never before seen. For the first time in our lifetime the corporatist’s within the U.S. CoC lobby will be neutered, and Republicans owned by Wall Street will have no choice but to openly rail against America while embracing their friends in the MSM.
  • Canada: Trudeau government has already quietly paid $10,500,000 to jihad murderer Omar Khadr

    Jihad Watch ^ | JULY 7, 2017 | CHRISTINE DOUGLASS-WILLIAMS
    Never mind the 50,000-strong petition against the Trudeau government calling upon Trudeau not to award the notorious jihadist Omar Khadr $10.5 million of taxpayer money; and never mind the injunction filed by the widow of Chris Speers, whom Khadr murdered, and by Layne Morris, whom Khadr blinded in a grenade attack, to block that money being paid out. The Trudeau government has already “quietly paid” out the $10,500,000 to this jihad murderer, and the check has been already cashed, “according to a source involved in the transaction.” This makes the injunction moot. Canadians had no say in the matter —...

    A former Guantanamo Bay prisoner who pleaded guilty to killing a US soldier in Afghanistan has received a multimillion-dollar payment from Canada’s government after a court ruling said his rights were abused, a Canadian official said Thursday night. The official confirmed that Omar Khadr has been given the money. A different official also familiar with the deal said it is for $10.5 million Canadian dollars (US$8 million). Both insisted on speaking anonymously because they were not authorized to discuss the deal publicly.

    Penn State climate scientist, Michael ‘hockey stick’ Mann commits contempt of court in the ‘climate science trial of the century.’ Prominent alarmist shockingly defies judge and refuses to surrender data for open court examination. Only possible outcome: Mann’s humiliation, defeat and likely criminal investigation in the U.S. The defendant in the libel trial, the 79-year-old Canadian climatologist, Dr Tim Ball (above, right) is expected to instruct his British Columbia attorneys to trigger mandatory punitive court sanctions, including a ruling that Mann did act with criminal intent when using public funds to commit climate data fraud. Mann’s imminent defeat is set...
