    Ontario - New figures released by the federal government show that illegal border crossings into Canada continue to rise, with 877 people picked up in March by the RCMP, an increase over the 658 people picked up in February and the 315 in January. The numbers do not include those people coming into Canada through legal entry points along the Canada=U.S. border, nor do they include those immigrants that haven't been caught, so the number of asylum seekers could be much higher, according to CBC Canada. Perhaps even more worrisome is the fears that criminals may be coming into the...

    Aaron Driver planned to commit a terror attack with 72 hours when he was killed in a confrontation with police in the southwestern Ontario community of Strathroy, police said today. “Obviously it was a race against time,” RCMP Deputy-Commander Mike Cabana told a news conference in Ottawa today, noting that things “could have been a lot worse” if police hadn’t located and stopped Driver. The RCMP showed a video at the news conference in which a masked man they identified as Driver, 24, warns, “O Canada, you received many warnings… You were told many times what would happen.”

    A Manitoba man was let off the hook but received a scolding from all sides in court after the 18-year-old mocked and applauded the death of U.S. police officers slain in a shooting last weekend. RCMP arrested the Steinbach man Sunday night after area residents reported comments he posted to the "wow Steinbach" Facebook page praising the fatal shooting of three officers in Baton Rouge, La. snip Charges for uttering threats were stayed but the 18-year-old spent almost two days in custody in between making the comments and the hearing Tuesday.
  • 'Mistakes made' by RCMP in High River gun grab: Report

    The report said that as RCMP officers conducted these searches, one team stumbled upon 50 firearms found in a bedroom on the second floor of a home. Prior to that, the RCMP had no plan to secure firearms found in searches. It became apparent that residents had removed firearms from gun safes in basements and moved them to higher ground in their homes, meaning some weapons were now illegally stored and legally warranted seizure for safe keeping.

    S&W 5946 I would give long odds that it was a Smith and Wesson 5946 in 9mm.   They come with 15 round magazines.   I doubt that the RCMP used the politically correct 10 rounders. The 3953, above, is also issued, but it is more likely he had the 5946. The picture is from a discussion of the RCMP pistols on defensivecarry.com. Another source confirms that the Smith is the choice of the RCMP.  From Silvercore Firerams Training, BC(pdf): Smith & Wesson 5946 - The Side Arm of the RCMP Manufactured 1990 - 1999 A double-action-only (DAO) variant...

    Before this gets taken down, take a look.It is practically a parody of the liberal stereotype of the right-wing, anti-government, anti-police gun nut, right down to the picture of Sarah Palin and some anti-Semitic ramblings about the Rothschilds. This is the profile they so desperately wanted Jared Loughner and others to fit, and now they may have the real thing. They will make all the political hay they can with this, never mind that three Mounties died to help them make it.

    TORONTO — The RCMP has conducted searches in Ontario and Quebec as part of an investigation into a Muslim relief organization that federal auditors accuse of sending almost $15-million to the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas.

    A little spin around current events… Canada’s Gun Grab – you’d think with the heavy damage sustained to their public image over the High River fiasco the RCMP would avoid doing anything which could be construed as over-reach. Yet our national police force managed to reload their stupidity gun and shoot the other foot. In a literal overnight move, the nations top cop, RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson, arbitrarily decided the Swiss Arms Classic Green carbine firearm was to change classification from non-restricted (and restricted) to prohibited status. Under the umbrella of Bill 6-68 which became law under a Liberal government...

    Rapinder Singh Sidhu has pleaded guilty to his role in smuggling cocaine across the Canada-U.S. border and is expected to be sentenced to eight years in prison later this week.

Durkan says that in the case of the California load, both drivers received 12 years behind bars and that there’s no justice in the...

    ‘It’s just like Nazi Germany,’ says resident. HIGH RIVER — RCMP revealed Thursday that officers have seized a “substantial amount” of firearms from homes in the evacuated town of High River. “We just want to make sure that all of those things are in a spot that we control, simply because of what they are,” said Sgt. Brian Topham. “People have a significant amount of money invested in firearms ... so we put them in a place that we control and that they’re safe.” That news didn’t sit well with a crowd of frustrated residents who had planned to breach...
