Canada Finds Glyphosate Contamination In Their Popular Food Products

Since independent labs in the United States have been finding glyphosate residue in all kinds of foods such as cereal, granola, snack items and even natural food brands – it’s no surprise that Canada should find the same contamination issue in their treasured foods as well.

Syrian refugee charged in 'random' murder of girl, 13, in Canada

A Syrian refugee living in Canada was arrested in the murder of a 13-year-old girl, who was found dead in a park last year just months after her alleged killer came to the country.

Ibrahim Ali, 28, was charged with first-degree murder in the death of Marrisa Shen, authorities announced Monday. Shen was reported missing July 19, 2017, and her body was discovered the next day in Burnaby’s central park, located about 7 miles south of Vancouver, CBC reported.

"We still believe this crime was a random act," Donna Richardson, superintendent with the Integrated Homicide Investigative Team, said during a news conference. "As far as motive is concerned...I am not able to discuss these matters in order to protect future judicial procedures."

Police did not reveal how Shen died, or if she was sexually assaulted.

Iran WARNING: US tells airlines not to fly through airspace as WW3 fears rise

The advisory also warns military activities linked to the bloody conflict in Syria have been ramped across Iran's airspace.

Tensions between Tehran and Washington are running high following Donald Trump’s controversial decision to pull out of the landmark Iran nuclear deal re-introduce economic sanctions last month.

Flight Service Bureau, which provides safety information on airspace to airlines, said "without seeming alarmist", the deteriorating relationship between the US and Iran must be taken into account when planning flights in Iran's airspace.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is getting just about as serious as is a heart attack: I find myself very alarmed at these developments.

Canadian politicians lead unprecedented smear campaign against advocate for Palestinian rights

On Thursday lawyer Dimitri Lascaris called on two Liberal MPs to denounce death threats made by B’nai B’rith supporters against a number of other Liberal MPs and the Prime Minister. But instead of condemning those who called for racialized politicians to face the “guillotine” or “stoning”, the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs (CIJA) and Canadian politicians smeared the individual drawing attention to the death threats.

And on the weekend NDP leaders participated in this unprecedented multi-party smear campaign against one of Canada’s most effective advocates for Palestinian rights. At the behest of CIJA, MP Hélène Laverdière called Lascaris “anti-Semitic” while Jagmeet Singh inferred as much.

Donald Trump confirms Star story on his secret bombshell remarks about Canada

Trump’s words caused a U.S. media firestorm. By the end of the day, Trump had confirmed the accuracy of the Star’s report, said he was fine with the leak because now Canada knows his true feelings and also complained at length that the leak was a breach of his trust.

Canada and the U.S. were not able to reach a deal by Trump’s informal deadline of Friday. The talks were scheduled to resume on Wednesday.

Trump made his controversial statements in an Oval Office interview with Bloomberg News on Thursday. He said, “off the record,” that he is not making any compromises at all with Canada — and that he could not say this publicly because “it’s going to be so insulting they’re not going to be able to make a deal.”

Trump’s America vs. Trudeau’s Canada

Donald Trump is currently renegotiating free trade with Canada, a country where over 70% of its trade is with the United States, and where probably over 80% of the population detests him.

Canada’s armed forces are notoriously underfunded, and Canada's contribution to NATO has been ridiculously small. Canada is quite happy with being a “free rider” on U.S. military defense spending, spending next to nothing on its own military.

Trump says ‘no political necessity’ to keep Canada in new NAFTA deal

Donald Trump said there is “no political necessity” to keep Canada in the NAFTA agreement if a “fair deal” cannot be reached. The US president warned Congress against interfering, threatening to kill the deal single-handedly.

“There is no political necessity to keep Canada in the new NAFTA deal. If we don't make a fair deal for the US after decades of abuse, Canada will be out,” Trump tweeted on Saturday, a day after the trade negotiations with Canada were upended by leaked off-the-record remarks he made to Bloomberg.

First Sex Doll Brothel in North America to Open in Toronto

The “first known” sex doll brothel in North America is set to open in Toronto, Canada, this September following in the footsteps of successful sex doll brothels in Europe.

“Aura Dolls is North America’s first known ‘brothel’ that offers sexual services with the world’s most beautiful silicone ladies,” declared the brothel on its website. “Our vision is to bring you an exciting new way to achieve your needs without the many restrictions and limitations that a real partner may come with. We hope that way you can enjoy any fantasy or fetish you desire without judgement or shame bringing the ultimate sexual experience.”

THIS pattern change could send snow flying for Labour Day

As Albertans woke up to the new work week on Monday, snow was seen falling on Highway 1 near Canmore, just west of the city Calgary and into the southern Rockies.

In fact, it had been falling throughout most of the morning across the Rockies as storms fired up across the Saskatchewan border as a low pressure system brought cool northerly winds in its wake.

"While it didn't snow in Calgary itself, the northerly winds gusting up to 50 km/h resulted in a windchill closer to the freezing mark," Weather Network meteorologist Erin Wenckstern said Monday.

"Canada Just Got Played": How Mexico Stabbed Canada In The Back

In what was the biggest economic news of the day, Donald Trump concluded bilateral trade negotiations with Mexico, a deal which he called the US-Mexico Trade Agreement (profiled previously) and which will replace the trilateral NAFTA which has - for now at least - been scrapped until Canada also comes to the negotiating table and hammers out an agreement with the US (read: concedes), from a position of weakness and virtually no negotiating capital.

There were some odd twists in the announced deal, for example the agreement on the "sunset clause", which as some pointed out is strange as it is a "trilateral matter" - i.e., one which would involve Canada - and it was unclear how it squares with the U.S.Mexico pledge that their talks were purely on bilateral issues.

City Forces Group to Remove Anarchy Symbol, Labeling It “Hate Material”

An anarchist group in Hamilton, a city in the Canadian province of Ontario, has been ordered by officials to remove an anarchy symbol from its headquarters. The officials have declared that the symbol is “hate material similar to the swastika” despite police distancing themselves from the city’s position.

“The anarchist symbol is considered hate material by the City of Hamilton and Hamilton Police Services and as such, must be removed,” city spokesperson Marie Fitzpatrick wrote in an email to CBC News.

However, despite the claim by city officials that the anarchy symbol represents “hate material,” local police disputed that label. The symbol “does not meet the threshold of a hate crime,” Const. Jerome Stewart of the Hamilton police said according to CBC News.

Saudi Arabia is using Canada to send a message, analysts say

"It's pretty clear that [Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman] is using Canada to send a message to the rest of the world that if you want to trade with Saudi Arabia, then you need to shut up on human rights," said Nader Hashemi, director of the University of Denver's Center for Middle East Studies at the Josef Korbel School of International Studies.

Hashemi said the root cause of the diplomatic crisis with Canada is bin Salman himself.

SAUDI CRACKDOWN ON CANADA COULD BACKFIRE

“The Saudi leadership wants to drive home a message that it’s fine to invest in Saudi Arabia and bring your money to Saudi Arabia, but that there are red lines that should not be crossed,” Riccardo Fabiani, a geopolitical analyst at Energy Aspects, told Bloomberg, but warned that such strategy could backfire.

Analysts are currently not sure how the feud will unfold, but Aurel Braun, a professor of political science and international relations at the University of Toronto, told Canada’s Global News that Saudi Arabia is unlikely to back down and reverse all its retaliatory measures without getting something back from Canada.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is not apologizing for his country’s call that the Saudis release human rights activists.

Saudi claims ‘badge of pride’ in break with Canada

Canada’s foreign ministry raised alarm over the arrest of a number of Saudi activists, including Samar Badawi, the sister of the jailed blogger Raif Badawi. Raif’s wife and children reside in Canada.

Most irksome to the Saudi authorities, Canada labeled those arrested as “peaceful human rights activists” and called for their “immediate release.”

The Saudi foreign ministry snapped back with a barrage of Tweets, calling the Canadian appeal an attack on its sovereignty, announcing a freeze on new trade deals, and declaring the Canadian ambassador a “persona non grata.”

Riyadh quickly cancelled all academic scholarships for its students in Canada, who number in the thousands. A $15 billion sale of Canadian combat vehicles, inked under the previous administration, hangs in the balance.

It was a shock response, but one that analysts say was calibrated to send a big message with minimal cost.

Canada’s liberal image gets snared by $11.5bn Saudi arms deal

A dramatic spat with Saudi Arabia has forced Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to enter the public fray in a bid to calm tempers. But what’s bothering Canada is the possible loss of a major Saudi arms contract.

The row erupted last weekend when Canada’s Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland issued a stern rebuke to Saudi Arabia over the arrest of women’s rights activists in the oil-rich kingdom. One of those arrested, Samar Badawi, has family connections to Canadian citizens.

The Saudis hit back immediately with a fierce response. Riyadh said it was expelling the Canadian ambassador, and recalled its own envoy from Ottawa. Saudi Arabia also warned it was cancelling all new trade and investments in Canada.

Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale is on record saying the Danforth killer was not known to his ministry. That’s possible, but very unlikely. With a brother in possession of enough poison to kill the entire country dozens of times over, the odds of the Danforth killer NOT being on federal radar are pretty small.

When contacted about the Carfentanil seizure and its potential lethality, the Ministry of Public Safety chose not to comment. The government doesn’t have the courage to say the seizure of 42 kilograms of Carfentanil foiled a deadly terrorist attack.

We get it. If they admit the terrorist angle they strike fear into the hearts of millions of people. We understand why the government would be reluctant to do so.

Farmer Converts 40,000 Acres Into Largest Organic Farm In Canada

In what could possibly be the world’s largest agricultural feat, Canadian farmer Travis Heide is in the process of converting his 40,000-acre farm entirely to organic.

Heide’s farm is large enough to produce 2,200,000 bushels of wheat per year. Although he has been mostly quiet about his transition to organic, his company Organics Canada Ltd. is set to boom as he will begin producing oats, lentils, peas, wheat and hemp all organically.

Currently, the farm is half-organic and half-conventionally grown, but by 2020 Travis plans to convert his entire farm to organic.

Saudi Arabia to dump Canadian assets 'no matter the cost' as diplomatic rift spirals – report

Saudi Arabia is selling off Canadian securities in response to Ottawa’s criticism of the arrest of a female activist, the Financial Times reports. Riyadh says it's ready to take the step despite possible financial losses.

According to the newspaper, Saudi Arabia’s overseas asset managers were told to dump Canadian equities, bonds and cash holdings “no matter the cost.” Saudi Arabia is not a major investor in Canada, according to the FT source, but the Kingdom wants to send a strong signal to authorities in Ottawa.

It certainly appears there is a bigger backstory here than generally visible.

Saudi Arabia Suspends Diplomatic, Trade Ties With Canada Over "Blatant Interference"

In a world turned upside down by Trump's unorthodox approach to, well, everything, replete with trade wars and diplomatic scandals, we now have one more, and this one was out of the blue. Late on Sunday, Saudi Arabia unexpectedly unleashed diplomatic hell against Canada when it announced it had suspended diplomatic ties and halted new trade and investment dealings with Canada in a dramatic escalation of a dispute over the kingdom’s arrest of a women’s rights activist.

Saudi Arabia also recalled its ambassador to Ottawa and ordered the Canadian envoy to the capital Riyadh to leave within 24 hours, according to a foreign ministry statement cited by the Saudi Press Agency.

Drivers caught in deadly pileup billed for firefighter response

Michele Demyen says she received a bill of $930 because her vehicle was involved in the collision, even though she didn’t require firefighter assistance.

“I was quite surprised that the government is asking the public to pay for what has always been seen as a public service,” she told CTV Edmonton.

Municipal fire departments in Alberta are able to bill the province for costs related to collisions on provincial highways. The government’s insurance company can then turn to drivers involved in the collision to recoup the money, although experts say this is typically done through insurance companies rather than by sending bills directly to drivers.

Possibly the World’s Oldest “Yo Mama” Joke Found on a Tablet in Iraq

Humor doesn’t always translate across time and geography and language barrier — what’s funny in 1820 China might not be humorous in 1984 Canada, for example. Nonetheless, some 3,500 years ago, six riddles were inscribed on a clay tablet in Iraq that could very well have been laughed out loud funny in their time — and one may even contain the oldest “Yo Mama” joke known to man. But in our time, we’re having a bit of trouble.

'Getting screwed over': Man changes gender on ID to get cheaper car insurance

A 23-year-old driver has legally changed his gender so he could significantly reduce his car insurance premium.

The Canadian man, who is identified as David, was fed up with paying extraordinary prices so decided to alter the gender on his birth certificate and driver's license.

He told CBC News he's saved more than $1,100 to date since making the change.

"I'm a man, 100 per cent. Legally, I'm a woman," David said.

"I did it for cheaper car insurance. I didn't feel like getting screwed over anymore.

"It was pretty simple. I just basically asked for it and told (the doctor) that I identify as a woman, or I'd like to identify as a woman, and he wrote me the letter I wanted."

He sent the letter off to the government registration department and within three weeks he received a new birth certificate indicating his gender as female.

CANADIAN MAN CHANGES GENDER ON DRIVER’S LICENSE FOR CHEAPER INSURANCE

A man from Alberta, Canada legally changed his gender in order to receive lower car insurance rates given to women – and the transgender community did not appreciate it.

In a Reddit post titled, “I saved 15% or more on car insurance by switching my gender,” the man, identified as David, said, “I am now a woman. I now pay $1100 less for auto insurance. I won. The end.”

Previously, citizens had to provide evidence of genital surgery, but regulations put in place in 2015 allow Albertans to amend their birth certificates if they “submit a signed affidavit stating the gender they identify as, along with a supporting letter from an accredited physician or psychologist.”

"At this stage, we have no evidence to support these claims," Toronto police said in a statement.

America’s Largest Creditor: Will China End U.S. Trade War with a “Debt Reset”, by Dumping U.S. Treasury Holdings?

One of the reasons why it has seemed so bizarre that the United States would engage in a trade war with its largest creditor in China, is that China has a move that the United States simply can’t defend against.

In terms of any sort of engagement between the United States and China, for at least the last decade or so, it’s always seemed to me that China has an incredibly large amount of leverage over the United States. To the degree that if push comes to shove, China has available actions that the U.S. simply has no answer to.

For the simple reason that they do have the ability to end the U.S. Treasury scheme at any point in time. Because if China did just dump its U.S. Treasury holdings, that would very well likely end the debt bubble overnight.

With focus on Mexico, apprehensions grow at Canadian border

While the Trump administration fortifies the southern border, there’s growing concern over the number of foreigners entering the country illegally across the porous northern border with Canada.

People crossing the border between Vermont and Quebec have paid smugglers up to $4,000, usually payable when the immigrants reach their U.S. destination, according to officials and court documents.

While the number of arrests is tiny compared with the southern border, the human smuggling is just as sophisticated.

“They are very well organized. They have scouted the area. They have scouted us,” said U.S. Border Patrol Agent Richard Ross. “Basically, we are not dealing with the JV team; this is the varsity.”

Driving the increase here, officials say, is the ease of entry into Canada, where visas are no longer required for Mexicans, and a border that receives less scrutiny and resources than the southern border, where thousands fleeing violence in Central America are being detained.

'Like 2 different people': Friend of Faisal Hussain struggles to understand what sparked Danforth rampage

When Aamir Sukhera learned that a young man he saw as a little brother was behind the deadly mass shooting on Toronto's bustling Danforth strip, he couldn't bring himself to believe the news.

"It's like two different people, it doesn't make sense," Sukhera told CBC News one day after the rampage that left two people dead — including a 10-year-old girl and 18-year-old woman — and injured 13 others.

Eight years before Faisal Hussain opened fire in the city's vibrant Greektown neighbourhood, he disclosed to Sukhera that he was suffering from psychosis and depression, and was getting professional help.

Canadian Woman Visits Germany, Questions Holocaust, Gets Tossed in the Slammer

A woman who denied the Holocaust in at least one video posted on YouTube is on trial at a criminal courthouse in Munich.

Monika Schaefer, 59, and her 63-year-old German-Canadian brother, Alfred Schaefer, who lives near Munich, are being tried together for Volksverhetzung, which officially translates in English from the German Criminal Code as “incitement to hatred,” said court spokesperson Florian Gliwitzky in an email to CBC News on Friday.

Canada should help Holocaust denier on trial in Germany: civil liberties group

A civil liberties group is urging the Canadian government to end the "unjust and immoral" imprisonment of Monika Schaefer, a German-Canadian woman on trial in Germany for publishing videos denying the Holocaust. The Ontario Civil Liberties Association says it's concerned about Canada's apparent unwillingness to come to the aid of Schaefer, who it describes as a Canadian "political prisoner" who was charged with a German criminal law that does not exist in Canada and is contrary to international law ... Schaefer has been in custody since her arrest and her trial is set to continue until August 17, the office says, adding the maximum penalty for each count is three years' imprisonment.

Ontario ordered to remove 5,400 smart meters over safety concerns

Last month, the province’s auditor general criticized smart meters in her 2014 annual report, saying the $2-billion program has so far spent double its projected cost and has not led to the government’s electricity conservation goals being met.

The Ontario environmental commissioner has said the gap between peak and off-peak prices needs to be much higher in order to encourage people to conserve.

Saskatchewan’s recall is expected to cost $15 million and take six to nine months. The province decided to go back to an older model last July after reports of eight smart meter-related failures — fires contained to the meters — in just two months.

An investigation in Saskatchewan found that rain water and contaminants getting into the meters appeared to contribute to them failing.

"US Monitoring China Currency Manipulation" Mnuchin Confirms Trump's Concerns

Confirming the President's concerns, U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin issued a warning to China over the recent weakness of its yuan currency on Friday, telling Reuters that the Treasury is closely monitoring the yuan for signs of manipulation.

in an interview in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Mnuchin said:

“There’s no question that the weakening of the currency creates an unfair advantage for them," adding that "we’re going to very carefully review whether they have manipulated the currency."

While we have been hammering on the weakness in global FX (Yuan and Euro specifically) for weeks, this is a story that’s been under the radar but suddenly blew up in the last 24 hours.

Family's $500K inheritance seized by U.S. border officials

Canadian Student Arrested by Israeli Forces for Protesting Israeli Demolition of Palestinian Village

Independent Jewish Voices Canada (IJV) is dismayed to learn that a Canadian student has been arrested by Israeli forces for protesting the impending demolition of the Palestinian-Bedouin village of Khan Al-Ahmar in the Israeli-occupied West Bank.

Michaela Lavis, 21, a Child and Youth Studies student at Ryerson University in Toronto, had joined Palestinian, Israeli and international human rights activists at the demonstration on Thursday morning. Lavis was part of a group of mainly foreigners who attempted to block one of the bulldozers by sitting in a line chained together in front of it. A staff-person with the Israeli human rights organization B’Tselem was also arrested at the demonstration.

Lavis had been volunteering in the West Bank city of Ramallah with the human rights organization Defence for Children International-Palestine. She had also been volunteering with an occupational therapist who provides support to special needs children.
