    Canadians born abroad who have children overseas will be able to pass along their citizenship under legislation introduced in the House of Commons on Thursday. Immigration Minister Marc Miller tabled the legislation, which aims to close loopholes that have created so called “lost Canadians” — people with ties to the country who are unable to pass along their citizenship to their children. Under changes brought in by Stephen Harper’s Conservative government in 2009, Canadians born abroad could only pass along citizenship to children they had in Canada. The change had followed Ottawa evacuating people from Lebanon during its 2006 war...

    Convicted Canadian serial killer Robert Pickton, who killed over 20 women, has been hospitalized and is in life-threatening condition after an assault at a Quebec prison, authorities said Tuesday. The 74-year-old was convicted of six counts of second-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison in 2007, with the maximum parole ineligibility period of 25 years, after being charged with the murders of 26 women. The remains or DNA of 33 women, many picked up from Vancouver's Downtown Eastside, were found on Pickton's pig farm in Port Coquitlam, British Columbia. Prosecutors previously said Pickton told an undercover officer planted in...

    As of April 29,179 people have been granted temporary visas under special Gaza programLawyers are questioning Canada's approach to screening visa applications for people in Gaza with extended family in Canada after one applicant, a medical worker, was asked whether he had treated members of Hamas. The Canadian Press obtained a redacted letter sent to the applicant by a Canadian immigration officer, which asks if he has "ever provided medical care to injured Hamas members." If he has not, the letter asks him to say how he was able to refuse "without consequences." Kelly O'Connor, an immigration lawyer in Toronto,...

    A disabled Canadian man is now celebrating his “deathaversary” after escaping being euthanized by his government over his crushing debts. Amir Farsoud was due to be euthanized by the Canadian government’s “assisted suicide” program because he was struggling to pay off his financial debts. Farsoud said he was booked into to be killed under Canada’s “Medical Assistance in Dying” (MAID) law after being faced with the grim choice of death or homelessness. However, just before he was scheduled to be euthanized, people raised enough money to improve his financial situation and he narrowly avoided death. A year and a half...

    The northern border shares something in common with the southern border of the United States - it is understaffed and Border Patrol agents are stretched thin. Despite a lack of proper support, agents at the northern border continue to apprehend a record number of illegal border crossers. In the busiest northern border sector of Swanton, Border Patrol agents made history by apprehending the greatest number of illegal border crossers in sector history of 1,109 in March, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection data. While the numbers are significantly lower than those apprehended at the southwest border, they are out...

    ST. JOHN'S, N.L. - Police in Newfoundland say patrol officers were assaulted Thursday by a "very irate male" wielding a block of cheese. A media release from the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary says the incident occurred when officers responded to a disturbance at a residence in central St. John's, N.L., at around 9 p.m. The release says they encountered an angry man who then assaulted the officers with "a block of cheese." Police say they arrested the man, and charged him with assault, assaulting a police officer and breach of probation. He was taken to a lockup facility in St. John's...

    A senior Toronto cop is being tried for professional misconduct after admitting to helping black officers cheat to get promotions. Superintendent Stacy Clarke is facing several charges after revealing she had provided confidential interview information to six African-Canadian officers. In 2021, Clarke, the highest-ranking black woman in the Toronto Police Service (TPS), sat on a panel responsible for interviewing and promoting officers. In an effort to diversify the police force, Clarke reportedly got involved with the promotion process by sharing interview answers with six potential candidates, all of whom were of the same race. Referring to the racist undertones of...

    The Trudeau regime has introduced an Orwellian new law called the Online Harms Bill C-63, which will give police the power to retroactively search the Internet for ‘hate speech’ violations and arrest offenders, even if the offence occurred before the law existed. This new bill is aimed at safeguarding the masses from so-called “hate speech.”

    Firearm-related crime is surging in heavily gun-controlled Canada, according to a report from Toronto Star contributor Shaquille Morgan. Morgan pointed to data from Canadian police, noting “there were 9,198 victims of gun-related crime” in Canada in 2022. The 2022 figures represented a ten percent jump in the rate of gun-related crime compared to 2021 and a 60 percent jump compared to 2013. Morgan zeroed in on handguns, explaining that “63 per cent of gun-related homicides were committed with a handgun.” Canada has stringent gun controls, and Morgan indicated they have gotten even more stringent during the past years. During that...

    Speaker Greg Fergus kicked Conservative Leader Pierre Poilievre out of question period Tuesday after a particularly nasty exchange with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Poilievre's day-long removal from the House of Commons came after he called Trudeau a "wacko" for supporting B.C.'s past policy of decriminalizing some hard drugs in an attempt to reduce the number of overdose-related deaths. Poilievre said it was a "wacko policy" backed by "this wacko prime minister." Fergus asked him to withdraw the "unparliamentary language." Poilievre refused, saying only that he agreed to replace "wacko" with "extremist" or "radical." Poilievre's refusal prompted Fergus to remove him....

    Even for medical practitioners who are pro-abortion, this is a dangerous precedent to set—first they came for Dr. Terence Davids, tomorrow they’ll come for you. (A Martin Niemöller poetic iteration, if you will.) Here’s the story, from a post published by the Campaign Life Coalition (CLC):Dr. Davids is a physician working in Saskatoon at the Bridge City Mediclinic.…One day last December, a woman came into the clinic to have her pregnancy assessed by Dr. Davids. However, the purpose of her visit was not to check on the health of her child. This visit was to gather size and development details...

    Catholic teenager Malachy O’Kane was suspended from his Ontario public high school for 6 days because he wore a sweatshirt reading, “There are only two genders.” O’Kane, 16, was suspended earlier this month, the second day he wore the shirt to the Granite Ridge Education Centre in Sharbot Lake, a small Ontario municipality in between Toronto and Ottawa. One of the school’s counselors told Malachy that he was not allowed to wear the shirt because the school considers it “hate speech.” Ironically and hypocritically, the school itself, which serves children from kindergarten to Grade 12, prominently displays controversial ideological-political messaging—including...

    Border agents have recorded a sharp rise in Indians attempting to illegally enter the US from Canada in a trend immigration attorneys expect could continue until the election. There were 30,010 Indian nationals apprehended at the norther border in 2023 compared to just 2,225 two years earlier during the height of the pandemic, according to figures published by US Customs and Border Protection. A further 16,622 have also arrived this fiscal year, which began on October 1. The data shows a rise in encounters at ports of entry, including airports, but also a surge in migrants arrested while trying to...

    The anti-Israel side is getting more aggressive, experts and police agencies warn. And, now, some groups are openly embracing terror groups and their tactics – and becoming far more radical. This week, Western democracies were provided with more evidence. On Monday, Chicago’s O’Hare airport was shut down by anti-Israel and anti-democracy protests – as was a super-highway near Los Angeles, a bridge to New York City, major streets in downtown Ottawa and Vancouver’s vital container port. Around the same time, dozens of anti-Israel protesters occupied Google offices in three different U.S. cities, and more than 100 “pro-Palestine” students at New...

    Police in Canada are promising a break-through in their long-running investigation into the country's biggest gold heist after four men were indicted in the US. More than $20 million worth of gold bars were stolen from an Air Canada cargo depot at Toronto Pearson Airport in April 2023, just minutes after they landed from Switzerland. Canadian police believe that the men arrested for a cross-border gun-smuggling ring were involved and will announce details at a press conference on Wednesday morning, a year to the day since the theft. Durante King-Mclean, 25, Prasath Paramalingam, 34, and Archit Grover, 36, all from...

    Comedian Bill Maher said over the weekend that if Americans wanted to see what would happen to the United States if it continued down the path to “extreme wokeness,” they should look no further than their neighbors to the north. Maher argued — during Friday’s broadcast of “Real Time” on HBO — that Canada should serve as a “cautionary tale” for Americans who wanted the progressive utopian ideal and thought that they could see it just across the border. Maher began by saying that he agreed with those who said American liberals should learn from progressive countries that were getting...
