  • Toronto: Sign threatening massacre of Jews at Al Quds Day event

    A sign alluding to a historical massacre of Jews was carried openly at the annual al-Quds Day hatefest in downtown Toronto on Saturday afternoon, the B’nai Brith of Canada reported Sunday. The sign depicts the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem and warns that, “The last Khayber is ready,” an allusion to an ancient battle in which a Muslim army defeated and slaughtered Jews in the Arabian Peninsula. It also predicts the coming of “the last Hayder,” a nickname for Ali, the leading figure in Shi’a [Shi’ite] Islam. Shi’a [Shi’ite] clerics are among the speakers and organizers of the Toronto...

    The opening matchup of the 2019 NBA Finals between the Golden State Warriors and the Toronto Raptors made history last night, in more ways than one. Played before a sellout crowd in The 6, including one former Prime Minister and a very passionate Drake, Game 1 of this year’s championship series was the first to been played outside the U.S. and the first NBA Finals game to see a non-American team win. The Raptors’ 118-109 victory over the reigning champs showed that this battle for the Larry O’Brien Championship Trophy isn’t going to be a walk for Steph Curry and...

    The nation of Canada has been giving us a chilling vision of what it looks like when a western nation completely succumbs to the dangerous ideology of multiculturalism, the cultural Marxism that always inevitably restricts the rights of some to pave the way for the rights of others. There is no equality in multiculturalism. Christians have faced increasing adversity in Canada as of late, but new proposed legislation that would make it a crime to publicly express one’s faith is a chilling new low. In the proposed legislation, it would become illegal for Christians to make any public displays which...

    May 20, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — The coffee meet-and-greet on Saturday, May 18 was supposed to be low-key. MPP Sam Oosterhoff was scheduled to show up at the Grimsby branch of the Canadian legion at 9 A.M., where constituents could show up with questions or concerns or just to say hello. A group of abortion activists, however, had other plans, none of which involved actually asking questions or expressing concerns in polite or civilized manner. Enraged by Oosterhoff’s recent speech at the Toronto March for Life, they decided to show their displeasure. A few dozen men and women descended on the...

    City officials in San Antonio, who discriminated against Christian-owned Chick-fil-A in their airport contracting, are trying to hide from the public their conversations now that they’re under investigation for their behavior. WND reported in December the chain with the famed cattle urging “Eat More Chikin” has been forecast to leap past Taco Bell, Burger King and Wendy’s to become the third largest restaurant chain in the U.S. The liberal hatred for the chain erupted when Dan Cathy, the son of founder S. Truett Cathy, said in an interview in 2012 he supports traditional marriage. Since then, students on college campuses...

    A former landscaper charged with killing eight men with ties to Toronto’s Gay Village district pleaded guilty on Tuesday to eight counts of first-degree murder. Police last year found the remains of seven of the men in large planters at a property where McArthur had worked. The remains of the eighth victim were found in a ravine behind the same property in midtown Toronto. The prosecutor, Michael Cantlon, said the cases involved sexual assault or forcible confinement and said the bodies were hidden and dismembered. … Most were of Middle Eastern or South Asian descent and lived on the margins...

    Apparently the Clintons’ political life is set to end not with a bang but a whimper. I wonder what kind of envy Bill and Hillary Clinton experienced over the jam-packed arenas -- with thousands listening outside -- that President Trump always has, as they gazed out at the more than 15,000 empty seats facing them last night in Toronto on their stadium speaking tour. Even though curtains were erected cutting the arena in half, the vacant seats far outnumbered the occupied ones. The UK Daily Mail reports 3,300 tickets were sold in the Scotiabank Arena, which holds 19,800, 16.6%...

    I am a mom of two. The beautiful girl who made me a mom is almost 6 years old. That same beautiful girl was conceived in a rape. As soon as I saw the positive pregnancy test, I thought abortion was the answer. Abortion is “always the answer” when a woman is raped, isn’t it? In fact, I was working as a nanny and my employer told me I would have to abort if I wanted to keep my job because she didn’t want her children to see me “like that.” I went to the pregnancy resource centre here in...

    Hair salon manager Amy Wesselink says her life has been full of “non-stop, endless, ” harassment since former employee Jordan Hunt was recently identified in a viral video as a man who allegedly kicked an anti-abortion demonstrator in Toronto. Wesselink, the manager of Noble Studio 101, said the Parkdale hair salon and its staff have been getting “hundreds” of threatening calls, e-mails, Instagram messages and texts since Hunt was fired last Wednesday. “I’m frustrated because we’ve been getting a lot of backlash as the former work place of Jordan,” said Wesselink, who is married with four kids, ages one to...

    Bill and Hillary Clinton are going on tour. The Clintons announced on Monday that they would headline a series of live events together -- billed "An Evening with The Clintons" -- across the country in the final weeks of 2018 and into 2019. The tour will provide the Democratic stalwarts with a notable platform weeks after the consequential 2018 midterm elections and deep into 2019, when a number of Democrats will be jockeying for positions in the fight to be the party's standard bearer against President Donald Trump in 2020. The events, which are being produced by tour promoter Live...

    Jordan Hunt, the 26-year-old man accused of kicking a pro-life woman on Sunday, has been arrested. Toronto police announced Saturday that not only was he charged in that case, but he was also accused in a separate incident. Hunt approached people protesting abortions, and began scribbling on their signs and clothing, police says. One of the protesters confronted him, and he allegedly kicked her in the shoulder, police said. In this account, it knocked the phone from her hand. He allegedly then ripped off a ribbon from her, and ran away. Police said he surrendered to cops on Saturday. Officials...

    Ford’s use of the notwithstanding clause: Sending a loud and clear message, to special interest groups, liberal lawyers, activist liberal judges, that his government’s legislation will not be high-jacked by elitist, undemocratic, unelected judges Ontario Premier Doug Ford’s decision to invoke section 33 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, (Charter) the “notwithstanding clause”, is a declaration of war on out of control, unelected, unaccountable, rogue liberal activist judges who have misused, misapplied and distorted the Charter to make law on the fly, for their own ideological+ partisan personal purposes.

    With just days to go before the halfway point of 2018, Toronto Police have confirmed at least 48 homicides within the city since January 1. That's more than double the 23 we'd seen last year at this point. Five people were killed last weekend alone — four of them by guns — prompting both Police Chief Mark Saunders and Mayor John Tory to express public concern over a recent spike in shooting deaths. "The incidents of gun violence we have seen in our city in the past few days are shocking and can in no way be accepted or...
