    Canada: newly elected liberals working day and night to get 25,000 Syrians in to Canada in next 7 weeks

    Considering airlifts and naval transports!
    John McCallum the new Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship: we are working overtime to make it happen this year. Bio: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_McCallum

    Oh, poor Canada….
    From CBC News:
    The Liberal government intends to honour its promise to resettle 25,000 Syrian refugees to Canada over the course of the next seven weeks, says newly-appointed Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship John McCallum.
    “It certainly remains our objective to get them here by the end of the year,” said McCallum during an interview on CBC News Network’s Power & Politics Friday.
    “Military bases are a possibility… air transport… even naval transport has not been ruled out.”
    “It’s a large amount of work to do in a very short time,” he said.
    There is more, here. By the way, the previous government (Harper) had said Canada would take 10,000 over the course of the next year.
    For our America readers, be prepared, Obama isn’t going to like being upstaged! Every one of you must continue to pound your elected officials in Washington (I know they are weak), but they seem to be the only thing standing between us and a mass invasion from the Middle East. World ‘leaders’ are going mad!

    Canadian mag puts jihad murderer on cover, portrays him as victim

    November 9, 2015 6:28 pm By Robert Spencer 19 Comments
    “It’s a disgrace that he is on the cover of a mainstream news magazine, being portrayed as a victim, and in the company of two real victims, including a victim of Islamic terrorism.” Quite so — and of a piece with the mainstream media’s avid desire to portray Muslims as victims, no matter what the facts are, and to downplay and deny the reality of jihad terrorism.

    “Canadian Magazine Puts Convicted Terrorist, Former Guantanamo Inmate On November Cover,” by Andrew Husband, Mediaite, November 9, 2015:
    Canadian weekly news magazine Maclean’s has stirred up controversy with the cover of its November issue, which features convicted terrorist and former Guantanamo Bay inmate Omar Khadr.
    Khadr, then 15 years old, was indicted in the death of U.S. Army Sgt. 1st Class Christopher Spee, who was killed by a grenade during a 2002 firefight in Afghanistan. The Canadian citizen was held in Guantanamo Bay for 10 years, though the U.S. military commission that oversaw Khadr’s case didn’t convene until 2010, when he finally plead guilty to war crimes charges. At the time, the case was widely criticized for its treatment of Khadr as an adult — despite his being a minor at the time of the alleged incident.
    In 2012, Khadr was released and repatriated to Canada under strict conditions. In an interview with Fox News back in May, Sgt. Spee’s former colleague, Sgt. Layne Morris, criticized Khadr’s early release.
    The murky nature of what happened to Sgt. Spee, and Khadr’s memory of the event, have largely cast further doubt on whether or not the former 15-year-old was responsible for the U.S. soldier’s death. After all, when he was found following the firefight, he was severely injured and buried under several feet of rubble.
    According to The Enemy Within: Terror, Lies and the Whitewashing of Omar Khadr author Ezra Levant, however, Khadr’s being featured on the Maclean’s cover is an egregious mistake.
    “It’s a disgrace that he is on the cover of a mainstream news magazine, being portrayed as a victim, and in the company of two real victims, including a victim of Islamic terrorism,” he told Fox News. “They have managed to transform a pathological murderer into a ‘victim,’ providing Al Qaeda with a great PR victory.”
    They swore, if we gave them our weapons, that the wars of the tribes would cease.

    Canadian Left all excited by prospect of 25,000 Syrians to arrive before end of THIS year

    Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 14, 2015
    ….But, don’t place them in resort lodgings in the woods!
    Learn more about the beautiful setting of Beaverfoot Lodge: http://www.hellobc.com/accommlisting...oot-lodge.aspx

    My alerts from yesterday (BP=Before Paris) are filled with many stories from Canada, from provinces across the entire continent, where citizens are gearing up to “welcome” the Syrian Muslims—25,000 of them—promised by Canada’s new President who is sticking by his pledge to get them relocated in Canadian towns and cities by the end of December.
    Lucky Canada!
    I had to laugh though about this story—don’t put them in the woods!
    We previously reported on how Sweden had made a mistake by offering rustic resort lodgings to Muslim migrants, here. We were told by readers that it has to do with the trees (where spirits hide!).
    Doesn’t that old line—beggars can’t be choosers—come to mind!
    From CBC News:
    Some refugee advocates have applauded a B.C. resort manager’s offer of accommodation for incoming refugees, but others are now questioning whether a lodge in Golden is the best place for the newcomers.
    Beaverfoot Lodge is located about a half an hour away from Golden, and resort owner Raphael Assaf believes it would be an ideal location for new refugees to live temporarily once they’re in Canada.
    Marilyn Perry, chair of the Central Okanagan Refugee Committee, disagrees.
    “Refugees have already been in refugee camps — they don’t need something else temporary. They need to be able to find a group and a house and get located in a city and begin to integrate,” said Perry.
    Refugee support groups are scrambling to prepare for the 25,000 refugees from Syria and Iraq Justin Trudeau promised his government would accept by the end of the year.
    Perry, who’s based in Kelowna, thinks the new Canadian government will begin processing applications from people fleeing Syria and Iraq quicker once the logistical challenges of the government hand over are dealt with.
    That’s when it will become difficult for “isolated situations” like Beaverfoot Lodge to handle the influx of people, she says.

    Canada: Police shoot Muslim wearing apparent suicide vest and holding triggering device

    November 18, 2015 5:15 am By Robert Spencer 14 Comments
    His family, however, says that he was mentally ill and that they are “shocked” by the whole thing, and that police unfairly targeted the poor man. You might almost think they were reading out of some playbook.

    “Peel cops shoot suspected suicide bomber,” by Chris Doucette, Toronto Sun, November 17, 2015:
    Hours after the horrific terror attacks in Paris, a stand-off unfolded between police officers and a suspected suicide bomber in a Mississauga neighbourhood, the Toronto Sun has learned.
    French officials were still counting their dead when Peel Regional Police officers ended a frightening confrontation by opening fire on the 26-year-old man at Golden Orchard Dr. and Grand Forks Rd. — near Bloor St. and Dixie Rd. — shortly after 2 a.m. Saturday.
    In the aftermath of the shooting, police downplayed the incident saying only that the call involved “an emotionally disturbed person.”
    But the presence of the service’s Explosive Disposal Unit and heavily armed Tactical officers at the scene suggested a far more serious threat was afoot.
    A source, who asked not to be named, revealed to Sun on Monday that the bomb squad responded because the man in question was wearing what appeared to be a suicide vest and holding what looked like a triggering device.
    It was not immediately known if the vest actually contained explosives.
    But suicide bombers and gunmen killed 129 victims in Paris less than eight hours earlier. So police, who were on heightened alert, took the threat seriously.
    Uniformed officers shot the suspected suicide bomber four times, the source said.
    Fortunately, the shooting was not followed by an explosion.
    The man, whose nationality was not immediately clear, was rushed to the trauma centre at St. Mike’s hospital in Toronto. He is expected to survive.
    Another source said investigators have since determined the vest was not real….
    “Family of mentally-ill Mississauga man question police shooting,” CBC News, November 17, 2015:
    The family of a man shot by police Saturday is upset that some media are referring to him as a suspected suicide bomber.
    Peel Police say the incident unfolded after they responded to call about a suicidal man in the Grand Forks Road and Golden Orchard Drive in Mississauga early Saturday morning.
    They say “there was an interaction with a male, he was shot by police,” and then taken to a trauma centre.
    According to the Toronto Sun, the bomb squad also responded to the call “because the man in question was wearing what appeared to be a suicide vest and holding what looked like a triggering device.”
    Police are not confirming that, but one neighbour told CBC News police called her and directed her to move her family to a safe place in the house.
    The family of Hamza Abdi is upset about how police handled the situation.
    They believe the 26-year-old, who suffers from bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and anxiety, left the house because he was anxiously looking for cigarettes.
    Abdi’s family said he was wearing a winter jacket when he left the house and the only thing they know he had with him was an electric shaver.
    Why did he take an electric shaver with him to buy cigarettes?
    They claim Peel police knew about Abdi’s mental health issues because of previous calls. And they believe tensions following the Paris attacks may have played a role in how police responded.
    Hamzi’s older brother, Mohamoud Abdi, told CBC News he was “puzzled and shocked and couldn’t believe” media reports calling his brother a suspected suicide bomber.
    Shocked!

    “My brother is Canadian as you can get, he came here at a young age,” Mohamoud said, adding that Hamzi was never violent toward anyone.
    Hamzi has since been released from hospital.
    He faces several charges, including uttering threats, failing to comply and a charge of possessing an imitation weapon

    Man carrying concealed knife arrested on Canada's Parliament Hill

    Published November 18, 2015Associated Press


    Facebook1 Twitter4 Email Print


    TORONTO – A man carrying a concealed knife on Canada's Parliament Hill has been arrested, Royal Canadian Mounted Police said Wednesday.
    Media relations officer Cpl. Valerie Thibodeau said Yasin Ali, 56, was detained by the Parliamentary Protective Service on Tuesday evening outside Centre Block, the main building on Parliament Hill that houses the Senate and the House of Commons.

    After a brief court appearance Wednesday on a charge of carrying a concealed weapon, Ali was returned to jail.
    Defense lawyer Peter Azzi said Ali is due back in court on Friday and will be psychologically assessed by a doctor.
    Security on the Hill has been tightened since Oct. 22, 2014, when a gun-toting Michael Zehaf Bibeau managed to enter Centre Block after gunning down a soldier standing guard at the nearby National War Memorial.
    Zehaf Bibeau died in a hail of bullets outside the Library of Parliament.

    Canadian Libs to announce Tuesday how they will bring in 25,000 Syrians in next 6 weeks

    Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 22, 2015
    The boy wonder, Justin Trudeau, promised 25,000 Syrian refugees would be admitted by year-end. If they take the ones picked by the UNHCR they will be virtually all Sunni Muslim. Photo: http://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-w...-minister-post


    Sigh…. Really feeling sorry for Canada.
    From The Spectator:
    OTTAWA — How the Liberal government intends to bring thousands of Syrian refugees to Canada by year’s end will become clear Tuesday with the rollout of the plan for the largest rapid resettlement program in the country’s history.
    Federal ministers would not divulge any elements of the proposal Friday or comment on a document obtained by The Canadian Press that suggests the cost of the program could hit $1.2 billion, far more than the $250 million the Liberals budgeted in their platform to resettle 25,000 Syrian refugees.

    After Seven Years, Free Yoga Classes At University Of Ottawa Cancelled For Being “Cultural Appropriation”…
    No yoga pants, no justice.
    Via Ottawa Sun:
    Student leaders have pulled the mat out from 60 University of Ottawa students, ending a free on-campus yoga class over fears the teachings could be seen as a form of “cultural appropriation.”
    Jennifer Scharf, who has been offering free weekly yoga instruction to students since 2008, says she was shocked when told in September the program would be suspended, and saddened when she learned of the reasoning.
    Staff at the Centre for Students with Disabilities believe that “while yoga is a really great idea and accessible and great for students … there are cultural issues of implication involved in the practice,” according to an email from the centre.
    The centre is operated by the university’s Student Federation, which first approached Scharf seven years ago about offering yoga instruction to students both with and without disabilities.
    The centre goes on to say, “Yoga has been under a lot of controversy lately due to how it is being practiced,” and which cultures those practices “are being taken from.”
    The centre official argues since many of those cultures “have experienced oppression, cultural genocide and diasporas due to colonialism and western supremacy … we need to be mindful of this and how we express ourselves while practising yoga.”
    The concept of cultural appropriation is normally applied when a dominant culture borrows symbols of a marginalized culture for dubious reasons — such as the fad of hipsters donning indigenous headdresses as a fashion statement, without any regard to cultural significance or stereotype.
    But Scharf, a yoga teacher with the downtown Rama Lotus Centre, said the concept does not apply in this case, arguing the complaint that killed the program came instead from a “social justice warrior” with “fainting heart ideologies” in search of a cause celebre.
    “People are just looking for a reason to be offended by anything they can find,” said Scharf.

    Canada’s Syrian Refugee Policy Limited To Women, Children And Families Only…
    Seems legit until you factor in the rise of women being used as suicide bombers.
    Via CBC:
    The federal government’s much-anticipated Syrian refugee plan will limit those accepted into Canada to women, children and families only, CBC News has learned.
    Sources tell CBC News that to deal with some ongoing concerns around security, unaccompanied men seeking asylum will not be part of the program.
    The details of the plan will be announced Tuesday, but already Canadian officials have been working on the ground to process people.

    How Do You Stop ISIS from Coming Across Northern Border?

    By Rod Kackley November 21, 2015

    How Do You Stop ISIS from Coming Across Northern Border?


    Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker was mocked for suggesting a wall be built along the border between America and Canada during his short-lived Republican presidential primary campaign. But Homeland Security officials take the idea of terrorists moving into the U.S. from Canada very seriously.
    An October 2015 Senate Homeland Security Committee report showed because there are so few Border Patrol agents on the northern border, drug smugglers are able to easily move their products north and south across the border.
    Not only is it the longest border in the world, it is one of the busiest. Approximately 300,000 people and $910 million in trade cross the northern border every day, representing the largest bilateral flows of goods and people in the world.
    Imagine what could be hidden in that traffic.
    Even more worrisome, a 2010 Government Accountability Office (GAO) report has shown only 69 miles along more than 5,500 miles of the entire northern border between the U.S. and Canada achieved “an acceptable level of security.”
    And if criminals can pretty much move illegal contraband with impunity from Canada to America, wouldn’t it make sense that if ISIS wanted to move its savages into the U.S., they would do it the same way?
    It might be no tougher to move terrorists from Syria into Canada than it would be to move them throughout Europe. And, despite its peaceful reputation, Canada has served as a breeding ground for terrorism.
    Case in point: the 2014 shooting at Parliament Hill in Ottawa. A homegrown terrorist from Quebec killed a soldier at Canada’s National War Memorial before trying to shoot his way into the Canadian parliament.
    The Canadian government for several years has reported an increase in the number of its citizens who are being radicalized and are then traveling overseas to support and be trained by the Islamic State.
    Paradoxically, the new Canadian prime minister, Justin Trudeau, has been sounding like he might move away from the counter-terrorism commitments of his predecessor, Stephen Harper.
    Trudeau has also reiterated his desire to move 25,000 Syrian refugees into Canada despite the revelation that one of the Paris ISIS agents might have been smuggled into France under cover of the wave of refugees washing through Europe.
    Combine all of that with the Nov. 13 ISIS attacks in Paris and it is easy to see why America’s federal, state and local law enforcement are scrambling to reexamine border security and the vetting of the constant daily stream of immigrants entering the U.S.
    However, this concern isn’t anything new to Rep. John Katko, a Republican from New York state. Months ago, Katko began sounding the alarm over lax security along America’s northern border with Canada as he introduced the Northern Border Security Review Act.
    It would force a new GAO review of the U.S./Canadian border.
    “I served as a federal prosecutor on our border both at home in New York and in El Paso, Texas. I’ve seen first-hand the issues that our nation faces countering violent drug trafficking, organized crime, and potential terrorist acts,” Katko said.
    Still, Katko wasn’t telling his colleagues in the House or the White House anything they didn’t know or at least should have known.
    The Obama administration has been aware since 2010 that the threat of terrorists getting into the U.S. from Canada is much worse than the risk of people with ideological mayhem on their minds coming in through Mexico.
    “While great attention is justifiably given to the challenges of securing our southern border, ensuring the safety of our vast northern border is also critical to our national security,” said Katko.
    Even though the need is immediate, Katko said before border security can be improved, a new study is needed. That is why he sponsored the Northern Border Security Review Act to push the federal government to tighten America’s northern border. His proposal won bipartisan House approval in October.
    The comprehensive federal examination required by Katko’s bill would specifically look into issues with recruiting and retaining border security officials to cover the northern border, including at more remote areas of the border.
    He said it would also determine tools border security officials need to effectively combat drug and human trafficking at the northern border, identify technology that could expand the reach of border agents, and find vulnerabilities in cooperation between Canadian, state, county, local, and tribal law enforcement.
    Companion legislation passed the Senate Homeland Security committee in July. It is awaiting a floor vote. Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.) is one of its co-sponsors.
    “When I brought DHS Deputy Secretary Mayorkas to Pembina (N.D.) in April, we heard about the difficulty recruiting officials to work in remote areas of the border and an increase in crime across the border. My bipartisan bill would help address these challenges, and it’s very encouraging that it passed unanimously through the Senate committee just a week after being introduced. Hopefully by soon passing it in the full Senate, we can make sure security is as strong as possible at all of our borders.”
    Shawn Moran, vice president of the National Border Patrol Council, told the Washington Post his rank-and-file have always thought the Obama administration should be focused more on the northern border.
    Moran said the border review legislation can’t move fast enough for the men and women who put their lives on the line every day to keep the worst of humanity away from the U.S.
    “Illegal immigration is like water,” he said. “It’s going to take the path of least resistance.”
    They swore, if we gave them our weapons, that the wars of the tribes would cease.

    Thornhill High School Evacuated Following Bomb Threat
    Westmount collegiate in Thornhill, Ontario was evacuated Monday morning, November 23, as a precaution following a possible threat. The neighborouhods surrounding the school are known as predominantly Jewish.
    Police condoned off the school complex and conducted a thorough search inside its premises. Police and CTV helicopters were hovering the sky and two fire trucks were deployed in the area.
    Update: Around noon after almost three hours, the Police determined that the school is safe, wrapped up its operations and the students started returning to the school.
