    A Jewish college student, Jordyn Wright who is attending McGill University in Montreal, Canada, who also happens to be on the school’s student government was given a rather hateful ultimatum that resounds with anti-Semitism. She was told that she needed to cancel her trip to Israel or get booted off the student government. A non-Jewish member of the student government on the same trip wasn’t given the ultimatum. The College Fix explained: Wright told The College Fix the trip is scheduled for Dec. 29 to Jan. 8 and she is still going. She describes it online as “visiting Israel and...

    Ottawa city councillors approved nearly $800 million in annual spending on garbage, water and the environment on Tuesday, but still came under fire from residents who say the city isn't devoting enough attention to combating climate change. The City of Ottawa plans to spend $77 million in 2019 to run its garbage, recycling and compost programs, up $2.5 million from the 2018 budget. Because the city has so much infrastructure to maintain - thousands of kilometres of water mains, two drinking water purification plants and a sewage treatment plant - it also comes with a hefty capital budget: $264 million...

    Trudeau’s government was already shabby before this scandal broke—all style and no substance. But even the harshest critics of the bumptious Trudeau could not have expected to be thinking now in terms of criminal corruption Canada’s SNC Lavalin bribery scandal strikes at the heart of the legitimacy of capitalism operating presumptively under the rule of law. It also strikes at the foundations of credible accountability—read honesty and lawful conduct—in the office of Liberal Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. It’s been common knowledge for years that SNC Lavalin engaged in corrupt practices, both at home and abroad. The immediate focus is the...

    "When I stepped in, there were about 12 people partying in my place. Total strangers. Nobody who I had ever seen before," Adam Mongrain told CBC Montreal on Wednesday. "It was completely surreal to step into my home and find people I don't know there. I didn't know what to do." He asked the first person he locked eyes with for an explanation. Mongrain was told the group had reserved the apartment through Booking.com, a website that allows users to find deals on hotels and short-term rentals. While an apartment on the building's lower level is available for short-term rental and managed by the landlord, Mongrain's is...

    Bill and Hillary Clinton are going on tour. The Clintons announced on Monday that they would headline a series of live events together -- billed "An Evening with The Clintons" -- across the country in the final weeks of 2018 and into 2019. The tour will provide the Democratic stalwarts with a notable platform weeks after the consequential 2018 midterm elections and deep into 2019, when a number of Democrats will be jockeying for positions in the fight to be the party's standard bearer against President Donald Trump in 2020. The events, which are being produced by tour promoter Live...

    The young school-age puppet named Julia feels in her heart she's a boy and wants to be called Julian. Trans advocates say for many very young children and their families, tackling such gender-related questions are real and can be complicated. Enter Julian, the marionette at the heart of three bilingual videos designed to help provide youngsters and their families with the necessary tools to navigate such questions. Julian (the puppet goes by Julien in French) is the brainchild of the Jasmin Roy Sophie Desmarais Foundation, a Montreal-based organization dedicated to fighting bullying, which unveiled the free video capsules and educational...

    Johnny Manziel's time with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats was short lived. The quarterback has been traded from the Tiger-Cats to the Montreal Alouettes, the teams announced Sunday. In addition to acquiring Manziel, the Alouettes also received offensive linemen Tony Washington and Landon Rice. In return, the Tiger-Cats got the Alouettes‘ first draft picks in 2020 and 2021, defensive lineman Jamaal Westerman and receiver Chris Williams. The move allows Manziel to reunite with Alouettes‘ head coach Mike Sherman, who recruited him to Texas A&M in 2012. Manziel, who signed with the Tiger-Cats in May, has not taken a regular season snap for...

    Pit bulls have never had the best reputation in Montreal, or really in any other city. Especially over the last couple years there's been a lot of back and forth on whether or not a pit bull ban will be enforced in the city. After Valerie Plante was elected mayor, dog owners thought the fight was over as the pit bull ban was revoked. But, for the last few months Bill 128 has still been in talks, and it doesn't look good for the dogs. Despite the bad rep, there are still a few places in and around Montreal that...

    For years, Mr Le Blanc and Mr Caron, both members of the Quebec Speleological Society, believed there must be another set of caves connected to Saint-Léonard Cavern near Parc Pie XII in the Saint-Léonard neighbourhood of Montreal, but they did not know exactly where. Then in 2014, the pair got their first inkling o f what might be underneath when dowsing rods - a stick used to search for groundwater - found a small fissure in the ground. ... So far, they've explored about 150 metres of the passageway, all while doing precise surveying for the city to make sure...

We are in a global struggle between liberal democracy and a rising tide of illiberalism, authoritarianism and dictatorship. “That illiberalism comes in many strains, including in Russia’s aggressive efforts to destabilize — if not dismantle — the liberal world order.” The antidote, Clinton claims, is the “wave of activism” she said is inspiring her in the U.S. and around the world.

She said she was stopped at the border and detained overnight before being handed a report stating she was inadmissible “on grounds of serious criminality,” according to a picture of the report she posted online.
