    A Calgary man who admitted he strangled his wife because he "just wanted her to stop talking" and then buried her body in the backyard has been sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole for 10 years. Joshua Burgess pleaded guilty Monday to second-degree murder in the death of his wife, Shannon Madill, on the day his trial was to begin. His admissions came as part of an agreed statement of facts read aloud in a Calgary courtroom. Madill and Burgess had been in the process of a breakup when they got into an argument in November...

    A poll released Tuesday found Canadians disenchanted with liberal Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, whose approval ratings have fallen to their lowest since he assumed the nationís highest office. The Forum Pollô, a public opinion firm, released their numbers while Trudeau was visiting western Calgary. Having called for ďphasing outĒ oil sands from the nationís economy, Calgarians greeted Trudeau with loud boos and, in some instances, barely managed to let Trudeau answer their barbed questions. Forum found that 48 percent of Canadians approve of the job Trudeau is doing as Prime Minister, the first time his approval has crossed the 50...

    Snip: Several emergency crews are at the scene of an incident at Marlborough Mall Saturday afternoon. Reports suggest that an officer was attacked by a machete.

Calgary EMS spokesman Nate Pike says first responders were called to the Marlborough Mall in the cityís east end Saturday afternoon. Pike says a Calgary police officer was taken to Foothills Hospital in what is described as stable, non life threatening condition with soft-tissue injuries. He says a second patient was also taken to hospital in critical,...

    On April 13, ABCís World News Tonight correspondent Tom Llamas devoted most of that nightís report to chilling death threats against the Colorado state Republican party chairman, angered at how Donald Trump failed to win any delegates at the weekend party convention. Besides that one report, and two minor mentions (one on ABCís Good Morning America and on Thursdayís CBS Evening News), thatís all the broadcast news attention given to reports of actual death threats in this increasingly nasty presidential race: 110 seconds in total, not a moment of which was on NBC. But since the Colorado convention through Thursday...

    As Ted Cruz-mania skyrockets exciting millions http://bit.ly/1SHWzWW, I still get emails from professed Christians ripping me to shreds for choosing Cruz over Trump. These anti-Cruz Christians dig deep, coming up with reasons so weak not to choose Cruz that they equal saying Ted Cruz took another kidís candy when he was seven. Then, they fall back on rehashing Cruzís eligibility. http://bit.ly/22nhGD6 Frankly, anti-Cruz Christians have me scratching my head. Clearly, these Christians are willing to overlook all of Mr Trumpís shortcomings, anti-Christian political positions http://bit.ly/23mAGaI and liberal leanings. http://bit.ly/1LUzCxd Meanwhile, they ďpassionatelyĒ leave no stone unturned, relentless in their attempts...
  • Why did Calgary cave to chemophobes over fluoridation?

    The Globe and Mail ^ | Feb. 19, 2016 | Andre Picard
    When Calgary city council decided to end water fluoridation in 2011, one outcome was clear: The number of cavities in children was going to go up. Five years later, we have the hard evidence that the perfectly predictable has indeed come to pass. A study published in the journal Community Dentistry and Oral Epidemiology shows that Grade 2 students in Calgary had an average of 3.8 more cavities in 2013-14 than they did in 2004-05. In Edmonton (which continued to fluoridate its water), during the same time period, the number of dental caries (or cavities) increased by 2.1, on average....

    A quarter of Republicans think White House hopeful Ted Cruz is disqualified to serve as U.S. president because he was born in Canada to an American mother, a new Reuters/Ipsos poll found. Republican voters nearly mirror independents and the broader electorate in their belief that Cruz cannot hold the White House, with 27 percent of all voters and 28 percent of independents responding he should be disqualified. Cruz, a U.S. Senator from Texas who was born to a U.S. citizen mother and Cuban father in Calgary, Alberta, has brushed aside the attacks about his eligibility as pure politics. But...

    OTTUMWA, Iowa ‚ÄĒ Donald J.
