    America’s economic wellbeing is at the mercy of the most thin-skinned hotheads on earth. The tragic and outrageous assassination of American officials in Libya and the vicious attacks on U.S. embassies in (as of this writing) Egypt, Tunisia, and Yemen dramatize the enormous risk of depending on petroleum from a region where a film clip can trigger riots, bloodshed, and fatalities. If this week’s turmoil proves as communicable as the rapidly tarnishing Arab Spring, Islamic militants could hammer the Great Satan by sabotaging OPEC oil fields or simply encouraging their co-religionists to leave their petroleum-sector jobs and instead rail against...

    Fearing for his life, a 38-year-old Vancouver Island man says he ran from the fangs and claws of a ravenous cougar and scaled a hefty piece of construction equipment in a desperate bid to escape. With his pants shredded by the cougar's jaws and a shoe lost along the way thanks to a swipe from the animal's claws, John Frank Jr. said he climbed a locked-up excavator's boom and called for help on his radio. The community of Ahousat, B.C., located north of Tofino, B.C., on the island's west coast, responded to Tuesday's attack, with some residents arriving on scene...

    The day Ottawa launched an immigration fraud tip line last September, a Toronto man boasted to his friends how he scammed the system to obtain his Canadian citizenship. Thanks to a tip, the man was flagged the very next day at his citizenship ceremony in Scarborough just before he was to take his oath. He was taken out of the queue, denied his citizenship and blacklisted by Citizenship and Immigration Canada as one of 11,000 individuals from 100 countries who have been implicated in cheating to apply for citizenship or to maintain resident status. “We are taking action to strip...
  • Why Does Canada Have a Strategic Maple Syrup Reserve?

    On Friday, news broke that thieves had stolen $30 million dollars worth of Quebec's strategic maple syrup reserves. Much as the United States keeps a stock of extra oil buried in underground salt caverns to use in case of a geopolitical emergency, the Federation of Quebec Maple Syrup Producers has been managing warehouses full of surplus sweetener since 2000. The crooks seem to have made off with more than a quarter of the province's backup supply.

    VLADIVOSTOK, Russia — Having just sent Iran’s diplomats’ packing and having brought its own diplomats home from Iran last week, Canada will keep trying to aid Canadian citizens there — including three on death-row — with the help of its partners and allies, Prime Minister Stephen Harper said Sunday. --- “The current government of Canada under the leadership of Mr. Stephen Harper is known for extreme policies in the domain of foreign policy,” the Mehr news agency quoted Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast as saying. “The hostile behaviour of the current racist government in Canada in reality follows the...

    Brief thoughts/quotes from the last 11 years. "Looking away, not caring, or hoping for the best are not viable options in fighting terrorism (in general) and the global jihad (specifically). Terrorism must be fought head on 24/7 and preventing terrorism is far better than just reacting to one terror-related event after another." -Cindy (July 1, 2011) ~ "WHAT DID I LEARN from the terrorist attack on September 11, 2001?

    Not only will the vodka in Vladivostok be ice cold today, so will the already stirred but now shaken diplomatic relations between Canada and Russia. Straight up, it's a potent cocktail. Not many countries support the whacked-out regime of Iran more than Russia and, with Foreign Minister John Baird's closure of the Canadian Embassy in Tehran yesterday and the booting out of Iran's diplomats in Ottawa, ultra-frigidity will likely be the tone of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit underway in Vladivostok, Russia. This represents the strongest condemnation of Iran since the imposition of international sanctions. It's a declaration of cold...

    VLADIVOSTOK, Russia - Canada has placed Iran on its list of state sponsors of terrorism and has shut down its embassy in Tehran, Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird said. Baird, speaking to reporters ahead of the opening of the annual summit of Pacific nation leaders here, said the skeleton Canadian Embassy staff in Tehran has been withdrawn for their own safety. Canada is also expelling all Iranian diplomats in Canada. "Canada views the government of Iran as the most significant threat to global peace and security in the world today," Baird said. "The government of Canada is formally listing Iran...

    Canada's Conservative government said Friday it is shutting its embassy in Tehran and severing diplomatic relations with Iran, which Canada says is providing military assistance to Syria. Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird said that the Canadian embassy in Tehran will close immediately and Iranian diplomats in Canada have been given five days to leave. Baird, who serves in a government that is a staunch ally of Israel, said Iran is the most significant threat to global peace and security in the world today.

    Canada severed all diplomatic ties with Iran on Friday, citing a long list of grievances including Tehran’s military assistant to the Syrian regime, rogue nuclear program and threats against Israel. Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird said in a statement that Canada had closed its embassy in Tehran and that all remaining Iranian diplomatic personnel in Canada had been declared personae non gratae. “Diplomatic relations between Canada and Iran have been suspended. All Canadian diplomatic staff have left Iran, and Iranian diplomats in Ottawa have been instructed to leave within five days,” Minister Baird said.

    A Democratic congresswoman from Brooklyn appears to believe that slavery existed in her district until 1898. Against the advice of her party’s leadership, Rep. Yvette Clarke appeared on “The Colbert Report” on Tuesday for one of host Stephen Colbert’s occasional “Better Know a District” segments. After getting in a few digs at Brooklyn, Colbert asked Clarke, who is currently serving her third term in the House, what she would say to her district if she could go back to 1898 in a time machine. “Set me free!” Clarke said. “From?” Colbert asked. “Slavery.” Trying to hold back his laughter, Colbert...

    Bars and clubs often are drug marketplaces for organized crime in many cities throughout the world, and woe to the owners who do not allow the illicit trade be conducted at their premises. The 'Ndrangheta or Calabrian Mafia brutally beat Rosy Canale after she refused to capitulate to their demands to allow party treats to be sold out of her disco in Reggio Calabria, and now that she's releasing a book about her experiences the thugs once again are targeting her as reported by John Hooper for The Guardian.

  • Anti-Americanism In Canada

    One of the most deplorable habits still spreading amongst Canadian liberals seems to be anti-Americanism. The saddest thing about those who spout anti-Americanism is that their views aren't rebellious, original, or remotely unique. In fact, their views only exhibit their insurmountable ignorance and the nonsensical and hypocritical nature of their conformity. Canadians who proudly display their anti-Americanism in public and in private conversations haven't only failed at making themselves look intelligent, they've failed to provoke anything but laughter and ridicule from rational Canadians. The nature of anti-Americanism in Canada has no roots in logic, nor does it have any place...

    Toronto eateries now offer camel burgers and kangaroo kebabs. Emiratis are addicted to Canada’s premier doughnut chain, Tim Horton’s. So it makes for kharmic culinary balance that Torontonians chomp a North American staple with a crazy MidEast twist: camel burgers. Casbah, a food kiosk in downtown Toronto, serves up camel burgers. “It’s very healthy, and it has no fat,” Casbah owner Dali Chehimi told CBC news. He sources his camel meat from Whitehouse Meats in St. Lawrence Market, who ship it up from Australia (where camel culling is helping to reduce feral camel populations in the Aussie outback). Whitehouse Meats...

    Two wooden armchairs that were gathering dust in a Vancouver Island church for decades may prove to save the financially-challenged parish after they were discovered to be rare and valuable Qing dynasty treasures. They'd been there, in a quiet spot along the back wall of the St. Matthias Anglican Church in Victoria, possibly since the parish opened the doors of its new home nearly 50 years ago. Now the church, which has struggled to survive since a damaging schism over same-sex marriage in 2009, is poised for a potential windfall when the chairs are auctioned next month in New York,...

The 23-year-old still faces one count of causing a disturbance and the Crown added a count of uttering threats... Saskatoon police arrested the woman last week after she allegedly caused a ruckus on a flight from Ottawa while sitting with her husband, 69-year-old Sen. Rod Zimmer.

Angie Prime, 35, was sitting in the living room of her home in Trail, located in southeastern B.C., on Saturday evening, talking to her husband on the phone and getting ready to take her three dogs out for a walk before turning into bed. Then she caught a flash of something that should not have been in the house. "I just happened to catch something out of the corner of...
