    Larger Muslim community wants apology from mosque and wonders why controversial imam was invited to preach A Montreal mosque is facing a police complaint and rebukes from the larger Muslim community after a video of an imam delivering a sermon in which he asks for Jews to be killed surfaced online.

The imam in the video is Jordanian cleric Sheikh Muhammad bin Musa Al Nasr — he was reportedly an...

  • Giant freezer may be a solution to Montreal’s intractable bed bugs infestation

    09/04/2016 12:18:36 PM PDT · by ameribbean expat · 69 replies
    MONTREAL — In the basement of a public housing complex on the outskirts of downtown Montreal is a large walk-in freezer used solely to kill bed bugs. The freezer is a local solution to a problem that has been haunting the city for years and is not improving, says Melanie Sanche, head of sanitation for the public housing authority. As in many large North American cities, cases of bed bugs have exploded here in the past 10 to 15 years, and the problem is particularly acute in areas with transient populations such as students, as well as in districts with...
  • Liberals planning to buy Super Hornet fighter jets before making final decision on F-35s

    OTTAWA CITIZEN ^ | 06.04.2016 | Lee Berthiaume, Ottawa Citizen and John Ivison |
    OTTAWA — The Liberal government is intent on buying Super Hornet fighter jets, according to multiple sources. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s cabinet reportedly discussed the issue last week, and while no formal decision was taken, one top-level official said: “They have made up their minds and are working on the right narrative to support it.” Rather than a full replacement of the air force’s aging CF-18 fighter fleet, it’s believed the purchase will be labelled an interim measure to fill what Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan has warned is a pending “gap” in Canada’s military capabilities. The Liberals promised during the...

    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 — semi-officially, unofficially, and secretly — 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...

    NEW YORK — Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred is open to Montreal hosting three or four regular-season games in 2016, the city’s mayor said Thursday after a 45-minute meeting he described as “extremely positive.” The goal of the encounter was to show Manfred that Montreal is “serious about baseball,” said Denis Coderre, who explained the city’s strategy toward acquiring a team either through expansion or the relocation of an existing franchise. Coderre wouldn’t give details about that strategy but said demonstrating to the league that Montreal can fill the Olympic Stadium for games in June or July is the...
