    OTTAWA — Early Monday evening, a special container, about five to six square feet, was unloaded from an airplane at Toronto’s international airport. Inside it was more than 20 million Canadian dollars, about $14.8 million, in gold and other valuables. It was swiftly moved into a secure cargo holding facility. Then, like many a suitcase, it vanished. Announcing the theft on Thursday, Inspector Stephen Duivesteyn of the Peel Regional Police, the force that patrols Toronto Pearson Airport, offered few details about how the high-value container had disappeared beyond perhaps the obvious: by “illegal means.” The investigators gave so little information...

    BANDITS have stolen almost two tons of gold worth a whopping £80million from an airport in one of the world's biggest-ever heists. The gold, which was being held in a secure facility, was in the process of being moved through Toronto Pearson International Airport. But crafty crooks somehow managed to intercept the swag that weighed a hulking 1,630kg. The airport is often relied on to transport gold that has been mined in Ontario to bling lovers around the world. Police are now desperately searching for the masterminds behind the extraordinary heist.

    Phil Washington, Joe Biden’s embattled nominee to head the Federal Administration Aviation, has withdrawn his nomination ... Reuters’ piece .. didn’t refer to Washington’s miserable performance when questioned by Sen. Ted Budd (R-NC) in which he went 0-for-7 on aviation policy. ... Nor did they refer to the exchange between Washington and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) in which it’s quite possible that Washington committed perjury by claiming that a contract at the center of a pay-to-play criminal investigation in California in which Washington is “materially involved” was already in force before Washington became head of LA Metro. ...

When agents then searched the bag, they found inside the lining a device that was about 3 inches in diameter....

    Just a few months ago, Sam Brinton was a rising star in the universe of the woke. Back on June 29, he announced, with considerable fanfare, his new role as deputy assistant secretary of the Office of Spent Fuel and Waste Disposition in the U.S. Department of Energy and tweeted happily about being “one of if not the very first openly genderfluid individuals in federal government leadership.” But it all ended ignominiously less than six months later: on Dec. 12, a Department of Energy spokesbeing announced tersely: “Sam Brinton is no longer a DOE employee. By law, the Department of...

    FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.

    The search warrant that named Denver International Airport CEO Phil Washington last year was carried out this week related to a corruption investigation in Los Angeles, California.

Driving the news: The warrant aims to unearth information about possible favoritism in how Los Angeles' Metropolitan Transportation Authority — which Washington headed for six years — awarded contracts. A copy of the warrant, published on the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department website, reveals the agency has asked for...

    President Joe Biden expressed frustration about the state of American airports on Monday, even though he made funding for trains a greater priority in his infrastructure bill. “America invented modern aviation, but we’ve allowed our airports to lag behind our competitors’,” Biden said. The president spoke about airports during a visit to Logan International Airport in Boston to promote more government infrastructure spending. He griped that the United States did not have any airports listed as the best in the world. “Today, not a single solitary American airport, not one, ranks in the top 25 of the world,” he said,...
