    A video of a racist altercation in Abbotsford is making the rounds online. The slur-ridden video appears to take place in a parking lot on South Fraser Way and Pauline Street. In it, a Caucasian man verbally assaults another person behind the camera, apparently over a parking space. In the 2:20 minute video, the man calls the person a “Hindu” and a “P*ki” who “should go back to India.” He also calls him a “camel-riding m***********” and other racial slurs not appropriate for publication. At one point, the man approaches the camera and asks, “When did you come to Canada?”...

    Mexico and Canada have been waging a silent battle for market share in the U.S. crude oil refining market. Since 2006, crude oil exports from Canada and Mexico to the U.S.’ largest refining complex in the U.S. Gulf Coast (Petroleum Administration for Defense Districts 3 or “PADD 3” or “Gulf Coast”) has changed dramatically. A Crude History: Canada vs. Mexico Historically, Canada and Mexico have both brought significant oil supplies to refiners in the U.S. In 2006, Mexico and Canada were both exporting 1.7 million barrels per day of oil to the U.S.; however, Mexican and Canadian crude oil market...

    As governments attempt to make more guns and gun ownership illegal, they succeed in doing so.  It does not mean that fewer criminals are armed.  Overall crime does not drop when controls are implemented.  One of the reasons is that guns are fairly easy to make, and the materials to make them are virtually impossible for an industrial society to control. An unintended consequence is that submachine guns or machine pistols may be substituted for ordinary pistols.  They are easier to make, because they are a simpler mechanism. The above machine pistol/ submachine gun, based on the MAC design...

    Some Hamiltonians are watching the U.S. presidential election campaign with a sense of awe. Some are dismayed by its numerous controversies. Some are disgusted. But on the weekend, half a dozen with local Liberal ties got involved by driving to Pennsylvania to campaign for Hillary Clinton. Led by former Liberal candidate Anne Tennier, the group knocked on doors in Erie to encourage current and former Democrats to get out and vote. It was Liberals this time, Tennier said, but some active NDP members will join her in two weeks. "Today it just happened to be Liberals," Tennier said on the...

    A Donald Trump ‘Make America Great Again’ hat is once again stirring tempers at Calgary universities – this time leading to a physical altercation. According to a University of Calgary statement, a fight broke out between two males, one of who was confirmed to be a university student, around 6:30 p.m. on Friday. Andrew Brookman, a political science major, alleges that someone called him over, referencing the hat, and what looked to be a ‘fist bump’ quickly escalated. Minor injuries were sustained, and both individuals were treated at the scene. Neither was sent to hospital. Brookman said he had never...

    Image from Donald Trump has a reputation of being a world class negotiator.  He says he is going to renegotiate NAFTA and other international trade agreements.  He has a concealed carry permit. His sons have hunted internationally, especially in Africa. He is a world traveler. When a firearms owner in the United States leaves the country, he loses the protection of the Second Amendment.  This does not mean he loses the right to self defense. It is a historically recent development to be legally difficult for Americans to travel abroad with weapons.  Prior to WWI it was done...

It was the End of Coal, the government said. The birth of a renewable miracle. Asked whether the plan might lead to higher prices for consumers, “No,” said Dr. Smith —...

The event is part of a larger push by Avaaz, a U.S.-based global activist group, aimed at mobilizing American citizens...

    Ottawa (AFP) - Canada will impose a national minimum carbon price in 2018 in order to meet its Paris accord commitment to slash greenhouse gas emissions, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Monday. "All Canadian jurisdictions will put a price on carbon pollution by 2018... To get there, the government will set a floor price for carbon pollution," he said in a speech to parliament. Each province will have a choice in how they implement the pricing, he added, for example, by imposing a carbon tax or adopting a cap-and-trade system. The federal government, Trudeau said, is proposing a minimum price...

A joint CBC News/Radio-Canada investigation has learned that the man is one of at least four Quebec men of interest to the RCMP for their alleged connection to the 2012 kidnappings of two Americans in Syria. The man in the selfie, in his mid-20s, is believed to be on a U.S. no-fly list. His home was raided by police as part of a terror investigation a few months before...

Partially boosted by sarcasm, it was fuelled primarily by Donald Trump, who was quick to claim he won Monday's debate by citing a slew of online polls that pegged him as the winner. But there's a problem. None of the polls Trump has pointed to are actually legitimate polls. Instead, all of the scientific, real polls published so far have shown him to be the loser of the debate by significant margins. In the world of public...

How the Royal Canadian Navy stacks up on the high seas In 2017, Canada's last destroyer, HMCS Athabaskan, will be retired, forcing the Royal Canadian Navy to lean on the U.S. to protect its ships from air attack. Last year, the vessel, flagship of the Atlantic fleet, twice broke down while at sea. Meanwhile, even Canada's newly renovated submarines won't last more than a few years without a few billion dollars in upgrades. Critics have called the Royal Canadian Navy "decayed," "neglected" and "embarrassing." But how small...

The documents show the first submarine, HMCS Victoria, is scheduled to reach its end of service life in 2022. The other three vessels will follow until the last, HMCS Windsor, retires in 2027. The documents, released to the Canadian Press through the Access to Information Act, peg the cost of extending the lives of the submarines at between $1.5 billion and $3 billion, depending on how long the...
