    Residents in Toronto are hiding their cars in secret locations and hideouts with round-the-clock security to combat the city's out-of-control car theft. The revelation, reported by The New York Times, comes weeks after federal liberals announced a national summit aimed at addressing the nationwide issue. The publication spoke to collectors who have taken to storing luxury cars in compounds with hired guards and dogs at night, only to still have them burglarized.

    Canadian Energy and Natural Resources Minister Jonathan Wilkinson said Wednesday that with the voluntary return of 23 permits by Chevron Canada in February, energy companies have surrendered the last of the outstanding permits for oil and gas drilling off Canada’s Pacific coast. “With these final permits, Natural Resources Canada has officially secured the surrender of all 227 permits in the Pacific offshore,” Wilkinson said, describing the achievement as a milestone in “protecting the ecologically rich waters of Canada’s west coast.” Canada’s provincial and federal governments imposed a moratorium on issuing any new oil and gas exploration permits off its western...

    Our neighbors to the North continue to be the Ghosts of Legislative Future if we don’t get our act together. During the first session of the 44th parliament, Bloc Québécois party leader Yves-François Blanchet, introduced a private members bill that would remove religious exceptions to the law that criminalizes hate speech. If someone is charged with hate speech in Canada, they can defend themselves in court by arguing they were, in good faith, making an argument based on their religious beliefs. At present, in Canadian Criminal Code, the “religious exemption” in Section 319 states: “No person shall be convicted of...

    Maine’s Department of Education is reportedly urging school districts to stop using taxpayer-subsidized electric school buses that were purchased within the last year. The districts reported problems with the new buses, which were supplied by Canada-based Lion Electric Co., last fall ... The windshields on the buses would leak whenever it rained, as the glass didn’t appear to be securely in place. concerns about mixing electricity and water from the leaking windshields led them to stop driving some of the buses. The buses, which cost about $345,000 each, were also sold with misaligned or incorrect lettering on the sides, and...

    Federal authorities say Rajinder Pal Singh had figured out a pretty sweet scam, smuggling illegal immigrants from India across the northern border and into the Seattle area — by putting them in Ubers. Investigators revealed evidence of more than 90 Uber trips they say showed patterns of smuggling that they connected to Mr. Singh from just one Uber account. And they traced a total of 17 accounts to his organization, according to court documents. Mr. Singh’s arrest late last month underscored the dangers and vulnerabilities at the northern border, far from the U.S.-Mexico boundary that gets most of the attention...

    A Canadian tribunal has ruled that Air Canada must pay damages to one of its passengers for misleading advice given by its customer service chatbot, which resulted in the passenger paying nearly double for their plane tickets. The case centered on the experience of Jake Moffatt, who flew round-trip from Vancouver to Toronto after his grandmother died in 2022. At the time, Moffatt visited Air Canada’s website to book a flight using the company’s bereavement rates. According to tribunal documents, Moffatt specifically asked Air Canada’s support chatbot about bereavement rates and received the following reply: “Air Canada offers reduced bereavement...

The development comes just weeks after a Federal Court judge ruled that Trudeau’s decision to invoke the Emergencies Act, which gave the government unprecedented power, was a violation of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

Isn’t it extraordinary that we see daily reports of young athletes, high school and college students, college athletes, pilots, members of the military and others dropping dead suddenly? Yet we aren’t seeing this same “died suddenly” phenomenon, as it is now called, in elected politicians – members of Congress, Governors, or State Legislatures. ... Before the vaccine rollout of 2021, these kinds of collapses were never seen before, and if they did happen, they were extremely rare. Now, it’s...

    I imagine life can often feel pretty difficult for today’s high school students. On top of dealing with classic teenage drama like homework, hormones, pimples, parents, driving, dating, university selection, and more, students these days have to contend with a host of new challenges. They suffered long periods of brutal Covid lockdowns. Active shooter drills are a normal part of student life. And, of course, there’s the nonstop anxiety and peer pressure of social media. Plus, on top of everything else, students today have also been force-fed some pretty bizarre ideas. Classical literature, advanced mathematics, and hard sciences have taken...

    Three years ago, the P.E.I. government rolled out its new electric school buses with much fanfare. Now some drivers say the buses are plagued with problems, with 16 to 18 of the vehicles in the shop at a time on occasions, out of a total of just over 100. Robert Geiss, president of CUPE Local 1145, which represents school bus drivers on the Island, says he believes the provincial government rushed into buying the new buses — and now students and drivers are paying the price. He said the biggest problems are with the heating systems, leaving some buses icy...

    We’re getting used to so-called “transgender” craziness. It no longer raises eyebrows when we hear about a man “breaking” women’s sports records or joining a sorority. We’re disgusted but shrug when we learn that a swim club is allowing a 50-year-old man who identifies as a teen girl to compete against and share a locker room with actual teen girls. We meme about the crazed man screaming at a hapless store clerk, “It’s ma’am!” But sometimes…sometimes the level of cultural delusion is still so shocking that it bears noting. Such is the case with the Vancouver police’s struggle to identify...

    Canadian lawmakers recently introduced legislation to delay a planned expansion of their Medical Assistance in Dying (MAID) program for three years. Without this delay, the rapidly increasing Canadian suicide rates will explode as those suffering from mental health conditions will be allowed to commit suicide with the help of a medical professional. Not to be outdone, some Colorado legislators seem eager to expand the culture of death outside the womb and constitutionally enshrine a nonexistent “right” to death inside the womb. They are making the expansion of death a “hill to die on.” House and Senate legislators have introduced the...

    A bombshell new report has sent shockwaves around the world after an investigation into the high numbers of “Covid deaths” during the pandemic uncovered evidence that tens of thousands of elderly people were actually murdered to boost the mortality rates. The data produced for the report indicated that people were being euthanized using a fatal injection of Midazolam. The cause of their deaths was then listed as “Covid,” indicating that the virus was killing far more elderly people than it was. The explosive data from the report was made public by Australian politician Craig Kelly, the national director of the...
