    A would-be porch pirate ran into some trouble when he was caught in the act, then got caught in a snowbank while trying to flee the scene. All while being heckled by the person he was allegedly trying to rob. It happened in Mississauga on Monday afternoon when a man looking to lift a package was surprised when the door to the home quickly opened and a resident said either “You’re done” or “You’re dumb” a couple of times. The man fled, getting into his car and quickly reversing. The trouble was he didn’t notice the snowbank he was backing...

    Rights groups have called for an investigation into the death of Karima Baloch, a Pakistani activist living in exile in Toronto, Canada.

Toronto police tweeted on Monday, saying the activist was last seen on Sunday in the Bay Street, Queens Quay West area of...

    Another meteor is believed to have fallen into the earth’s atmosphere late Monday night, marking the second visible fireball reported in a week above Ontario. More than 150 eyewitness reports were made to National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) of a bright fireball seen on the evening of Dec. 7. According to NASA, the object may have entered the atmosphere above Rossie, New York before travelling across the border, disintegrating near Brockville, Ont. Dr. Denis Vida, a postdoctoral associate with the University of Western Ontario in their physics and astronomy department, called the meteor “a slow fireball” as it travelled...

    In a tragic irony, the prospect of another 'life-saving' lockdown has drained some senior citizens of their will to live. Assisted suicides and depression are up.An elderly woman who had experienced strict confinement and isolation in a Toronto nursing home under a previous COVID lockdown has narrowly avoided reliving that experience, although at a horrible cost. Toronto went into Ontario’s most restrictive “grey” tier on Monday, including a near-complete ban on social gatherings. Unlike many others in North America who have packed up their belongings and relocated to less restrictive areas during the COVID-19 outbreak, however, her “escape” from lockdown...

    It's a mish-mash Friday because so much is either being revealed or hinted at that a one-topic article just won't cut the mustard. So fasten your seatbelts. It's gonna be a bumpy ride. Cast your mind all the way back to last Thursday (aka "ancient history") when I wrote Scytl Scuttled: Election Fraud Servers Seized By Huge U.S. Army Force in Frankfurt. I took a gamble on a rumor coming out of Spain, through Germany via Twitter and a lot of people gave me crap claiming, "Twitter isn't a reliable news source." Really!?! What do you suggest I use?

    Election tech company Dominion Voting Systems is rebutting assorted claims of partisan bias and voting manipulation in the 2020 election, including rumors of a secret U.S. military raid on purported servers in Germany and ownership interests and other influence in the firm by prominent Democratic families.

    We have another major bombshell for you here, regarding the 2020 election. Despite the intense, malicious censorship of Big Tech, we're really becoming known for in-depth analysis and research of current events, so thank you for your support as we continue to fight for the very survival of America, our constitutional republic. This story begins with the little-known executive order signed into existence on September 12, 2018, by President Donald J. Trump. That order, available at Whitehouse.gov, is entitled, "Executive Order on Imposing Certain Sanctions in the Event of Foreign Interference in a United States Election." In that executive order,...

    Dominion Voting Systems shares an office floor with the George Soros-funded left-wing Tides Foundation in Toronto, NATIONAL FILE has learned.

Dominion is headquartered in Toronto and has a U.S. office in Denver. The Robertson Building’s Directory...

    In London, hundreds defied rules against large gatherings Sunday to rally at Trafalgar Square and mass outside the new U.S. Embassy on the south bank of the River Thames, where they chanted “no justice, no peace” in solidarity with U.S. movement against racial bias in the criminal justice system. Demonstrators there and in Berlin waved signs reading “I can't breathe” — some of the last words that the dying Floyd, captured by an onlooker’s video, gasped out in Minneapolis as a police officer pressed his knee down on Floyd’s neck for more than eight minutes. “LONDON: lockdown has not been...

    A passionate gathering to protest anti-black and anti-Indigenous racism, dubbed Justice for Regis, made its way through downtown Toronto on Saturday afternoon. Thousands of people, some carrying signs that read, “Stop killing us,” and, “Black Lives Matter,” while chanting, “Shame, shame,” and, “Say her name,” gathered after high-profile police-involved deaths of black people in both Canada and the U.S. — the latter prompting several days and nights of protests in American cities. In Toronto, the Justice for Regis protest was organized by a group called Not Another Black Life after Regis Korchinski-Paquet, 29, fell from the balcony of a 24th-floor...

    New analysis of projected provincial gas tax revenues in Ontario has revealed that that source of provincial funding will fall much more dramatically than predicted just five years ago due to increased use of electric vehicles and other factors. And so, concludes Trent University professor emeritus Harry Kitchen in a new report titled Ontario’s Downward Trend for Fuel Revenue: Will Road Pricing Fill the Gap?, the provincial government must look for other sources of revenues to build transportation infrastructure. Kitchen recommends road pricing, such as tolls and HOT lanes, with funds raised earmarked for future transportation improvements, and dynamic parking...
