The Toronto-based Globe And Mail...

    The RCMP has arrested and charged a high-level official with the force in a major national security case. Cameron Ortis faces seven charges dating back to 2015 under both the Criminal Code and the Security of Information Act, and Global News has learned the RCMP believe he stole “large quantities of information, which could compromise an untold number of investigations.” Other sources referred to the case as “serious spy s–t.” ...he was likely the only civilian to ever achieve the position of director general of intelligence. That role gave him control over RCMP counter-intelligence operations. ...charges relate specifically with unauthorized...

    Several gondola cars came crashing to the ground early Saturday in British Columbia after someone apparently cut the cable, according to Canadian officials. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) said in a news release that employees at the Sea to Sky Gondola noticed a cable down and saw several gondolas on the ground around 7:00 a.m. After an initial assessment of the situation by employees, the RCMP was contacted and are currently treating the incident as "criminal in nature." The popular sightseeing attraction is located in Squamish, British Columbia, about 40 miles north of Vancouver. The attraction gives guests a...

    Canadians are celebrating Canada Day on July 1 and even though it is a long way from Texas, one of the northern neighbor’s hallmarks is made exclusively in the Lone Star State. The flat-brimmed hats with the center dent worn by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police are produced at the Milano Hat Company factory in Garland. “We make custom hats for each one of the Mounties,” said Milano President Scott Starnes. “They are made one at a time and we take very good care to make sure everyone is happy.” The factory in Garland produces just about every type of...

    28-year-old Syrian national Ibrahim Ali, who came to Canada as a refugee, has been accused of murdering a 13-year-old girl in Burnaby, British Colombia, whose body was found last year. The Syrian refugee, who came to Canada through a private sponsorship programme, was arrested last week by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) after a large-scale investigation into the death of the 13-year-old, who was found in Burnaby’s Central Park in July 2017. In court, the 28-year-old was charged with first-degree murder. He required an Arabic interpreter, with proceedings delayed as the court waited for the interpreter to arrive.

    The number of illegal border crossers in Canada will soon surpass the 25,000 Syrian refugees Canada accepted in 2016 In this Aug. 7, 2017 file photo, a Royal Canadian Mounted Police officer informs a migrant couple of the location of a legal border station, shortly before they illegally crossed from Champlain, N.Y., to Saint-Bernard-de-Lacolle, Quebec, using Roxham Road. Authorities say more than 80 percent of the 4,000 migrants who crossed into Quebec recently are from Haiti, and the rest include people from India, Mexico, Colombia and Turkey.AP Photo/Charles Krupa, There are so many Mounties needed to process illegal border crossings...

    The number of illegal border crossers in Canada will soon surpass the 25,000 Syrian refugees Canada accepted in 2016 There are so many Mounties needed to process illegal border crossings in rural Quebec that the federal government is now spending $250,000 to build an unofficial police station on the U.S. border. In Toronto last week, Mayor John Tory announced that the number of refugee claimants in the city’s shelter system has quadrupled from 459 per night in 2016 to an average of 2,351 in 2018. And at least one Quebec politician is calling for a border fence with the U.S....

    A man walking his dog on a British Columbia beach this week made a grisly discovery: A foot in a shoe, along with part of a lower leg. Adding to the mystery is that it is the 13th foot to wash up on the Canadian province's coastline over the past decade. "Our early analysis suggests these are human remains and we will do further investigation and testing ... in the coming weeks," said Andy Watson, a spokesman for the BC Coroners Service, about the Thursday discovery. The remains included a tibia and fibula. The Coroners Service said all previous 12...

    Ontario - New figures released by the federal government show that illegal border crossings into Canada continue to rise, with 877 people picked up in March by the RCMP, an increase over the 658 people picked up in February and the 315 in January. The numbers do not include those people coming into Canada through legal entry points along the Canada=U.S. border, nor do they include those immigrants that haven't been caught, so the number of asylum seekers could be much higher, according to CBC Canada. Perhaps even more worrisome is the fears that criminals may be coming into the...

    Aaron Driver planned to commit a terror attack with 72 hours when he was killed in a confrontation with police in the southwestern Ontario community of Strathroy, police said today. “Obviously it was a race against time,” RCMP Deputy-Commander Mike Cabana told a news conference in Ottawa today, noting that things “could have been a lot worse” if police hadn’t located and stopped Driver. The RCMP showed a video at the news conference in which a masked man they identified as Driver, 24, warns, “O Canada, you received many warnings… You were told many times what would happen.”

    A 24-year-old man who had been under a peace bond for being an ISIS sympathizer was killed Wednesday night by police responding to what they say was "a potential terrorist threat" in the small southern Ontario town of Strathroy.

    A Manitoba man was let off the hook but received a scolding from all sides in court after the 18-year-old mocked and applauded the death of U.S. police officers slain in a shooting last weekend. RCMP arrested the Steinbach man Sunday night after area residents reported comments he posted to the "wow Steinbach" Facebook page praising the fatal shooting of three officers in Baton Rouge, La. snip Charges for uttering threats were stayed but the 18-year-old spent almost two days in custody in between making the comments and the hearing Tuesday.

    The report said that as RCMP officers conducted these searches, one team stumbled upon 50 firearms found in a bedroom on the second floor of a home. Prior to that, the RCMP had no plan to secure firearms found in searches. It became apparent that residents had removed firearms from gun safes in basements and moved them to higher ground in their homes, meaning some weapons were now illegally stored and legally warranted seizure for safe keeping.

    S&W 5946 I would give long odds that it was a Smith and Wesson 5946 in 9mm.   They come with 15 round magazines.   I doubt that the RCMP used the politically correct 10 rounders. The 3953, above, is also issued, but it is more likely he had the 5946. The picture is from a discussion of the RCMP pistols on defensivecarry.com. Another source confirms that the Smith is the choice of the RCMP.  From Silvercore Firerams Training, BC(pdf): Smith & Wesson 5946 - The Side Arm of the RCMP Manufactured 1990 - 1999 A double-action-only (DAO) variant...

    Before this gets taken down, take a look.It is practically a parody of the liberal stereotype of the right-wing, anti-government, anti-police gun nut, right down to the picture of Sarah Palin and some anti-Semitic ramblings about the Rothschilds. This is the profile they so desperately wanted Jared Loughner and others to fit, and now they may have the real thing. They will make all the political hay they can with this, never mind that three Mounties died to help them make it.

    TORONTO — The RCMP has conducted searches in Ontario and Quebec as part of an investigation into a Muslim relief organization that federal auditors accuse of sending almost $15-million to the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas. Integrated National Security Enforcement Teams raided the head office of the International Relief Fund for the Afflicted and Needy — Canada in Mississauga, Ont. on Monday, as well as a private residence in Montreal. “An extensive amount of documentary evidence along with stored media, money and other records were seized,” the RCMP said in a statement issued shortly after the government announced the former charity...
