    The RCMP protect the prime minister around the clock, but cabinet ministers are not generally given a protective detail unless they’re facing a specific threat. In Ottawa, ministers have access to a car and driver, but that is not considered to be a substitute for a security detail. Mendicino said he was concerned about the level of safety for all politicians and said everything was on the table. “We will continue to explore all options. We work very closely with the RCMP with the sergeant at arms with all of the local and regional police services who offer protection.” On...

    Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Sunday condemned an abusive verbal attack on his deputy prime minister and finance minister, Chrystia Freeland, which he described as an "extremely disturbing harassment" that was not an isolated incident. In the video of the incident shared on Twitter late on Friday, Freeland was approaching the elevator of a city hall building in Grande Prairie, Alberta, when one man shouted at her.

    Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is in lockstep with Klaus Schwab’s Great Reset agenda now that the Liberal government has unveiled its ambitious federal “Digital Identity Program.” ... details about how the federal government is building a digital identity infrastructure that will affect all Canadians. “The COVID-19 pandemic highlighted the need for government services to be accessible and flexible in the digital age. The next step in making services more convenient to access is a federal Digital Identity Program, integrated with pre-existing provincial platforms,” the report reads. “Digital identity is the electronic equivalent of a recognized proof-of-identity document (for example, a...

    Chrystia Freeland called climate action 'an insurance policy against higher energy prices.'. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s World Economic Forum-linked finance minister told Canadians on Tuesday that record-high fuel prices are a “reminder of why climate action is so important and why as a country we need to work even harder and move even faster towards a green economy.” “It’s an insurance policy against higher energy prices,” Liberal Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland said at a press conference. Freeland’s statements come after the Liberal government increased the cost of fuel overnight by imposing a “carbon tax” on Canadians on April 1. On...

    Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has named his close ally and deputy Chrystia Freeland as finance minister. She replaces Bill Morneau who resigned amid friction with Trudeau over government spending amid pandemic. Freeland, 52, a former journalist and foreign minister, on Tuesday became Canada’s first female finance minister, a day after Bill Morneau resigned. She also keeps her job as deputy prime minister. “It’s about time that we broke that glass ceiling,’’ Freeland said. […] Freeland will now be tasked with reviving an economy crippled by the COVID-19 pandemic, with the budget deficit this fiscal year forecast to hit C$343.2...

    Canada’s foreign minister said on Friday it was likely that foreign actors would meddle in her country’s October elections and her British counterpart said a deterrent to stop countries like Russia from interfering was critical. U.S. intelligence officials and the governments of some European Union countries have accused Russia of interfering in their elections in recent years, allegations strongly denied by Moscow. When asked whether she was worried Russia would interfere in the election, Chrystia Freeland said she was “very concerned”. “Our judgment is that interference is very likely and we think there have probably already been efforts by malign...

    Canada’s Foreign Affairs Minister, Chrystia Freeland, refrained on Wednesday from supporting U.S. President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel, but also did not harshly criticize the move as other countries had done. “Canada is a steadfast ally and friend of Israel and friend to the Palestinian people. Canada’s longstanding position is that the status of Jerusalem can be resolved only as part of a general settlement of the Palestinian-Israeli dispute,” she said in a statement. “We are strongly committed to the goal of a comprehensive, just and lasting peace in the Middle East,...

    Canada’s foreign minister said Tuesday that the country must spend more on its military now that the U.S. is questioning its role of global leadership. Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland told Parliament that relying on the “the U.S. security umbrella would make us a client state.” She said Canada is committed to make a “substantial investment” in its military and said the defense minister would elaborate on that Wednesday. Freeland said Canadians will always be grateful for the outsized role the U.S. has played in the world and Canada will seek to persuade Washington that its continued leadership is in the...

    Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday signed a law offering a hectare (2.5 acres) of land for free in Russia's Far East. The move, which is open to all Russian citizens, aims to boost the population and the economy in the vast remote region. Estimates by Russia's Minister for the Development of the Far East, Aleksandr Galushka, predicts that the project could increase the region's population to 36 million people, from the current 6.4 million. According to the bill, the land will be free of payment or tax for five years and may be used for any lawful purpose. However,...

    FREELAND — If you’re wanted by the police, it’s probably not smart to post a police department’s “wanted” photo of yourself on your Facebook profile. But, that’s just what Anthony James Lescowitch apparently did. And he was captured 45 minutes later, Freeland police announced, fittingly enough, on the department’s Facebook page. The Freeland Police Department posted a photo of Lescowitch at 9:19 p.m. Monday, noting that Lescowitch, 35, was wanted for aggravated assault and numerous other charges. The post asked that anyone knowing Lescowitch’s whereabouts to call police at 570-636-0111 or 911. Less than two hours later, Freeland police posted...

    Anderson, a little town in Alaska's interior, has no gas station, no grocery store and no traffic lights, but it does have plenty of woodsy land — and it's free to anyone willing to put down roots in the often-frozen ground. In a modern twist on the homesteading movement that populated the Plains in the 1800s, the community of 300 people is offering 26 large lots on spruce-covered land in a part of Alaska that has spectacular views of the Northern lights and Mount McKinley, North America's highest peak.And what's an occasional day of 60-below cold in a town...

    Billy and Sheila Canaan just wanted out of Baton Rouge. They didn''t expect to be bit players in a new movement to keep the Great Plains from emptying. Billy gave up a $90,000-a-year deputy sheriff's job for one that pays a third as much. Sheila kept slipping on the thick ice of a bitter Kansas winter and broke a rib. Son Clayton reluctantly started his senior year at a new high school. To their Cajun palates, Midwest cooking had all the zing of roasted cardboard. (Clayton keeps hot sauce in his locker.) So why Kansas, when other rural states offer...

    Some young Freeland students came home from school last week upset and confused about a new pair of words they believed were taboo -- "Merry Christmas." Maria Gordon of Freeland expressed anger and disbelief as she presented her concerns Monday night to the Freeland School Board. She said her second grade twins, who attend the Learning Center, told her during dinner Friday that they are not allowed to say "Merry Christmas" in the school. "You hear about it in other districts, but I never thought it would happen here," Gordon said. She said she believes the ban stems from a...
