‘Worst’ anti-Semitic hate crime at Winnipeg cafe was allegedly faked by owners, say police

Thursday 12:40 GMT

An incident at a Corydon Avenue cafe that was originally reported as one of Winnipeg’s worst-ever hate crimes was apparently staged, said police.

The cafe was allegedly robbed, the interior trashed and the walls spray-painted with anti-Semitic graffiti on April 18, although investigators now say that was all staged by the owners. Three owners of the BerMax Caffé were arrested Wednesday and charged with public mischief, which involves intent to mislead and causing an officer to investigate an incident based on false information.

To stay or to go Flood-weary Quebecers ponder leaving their homes

Today 00:35 GMT

As they grapple with their second bout of major spring flooding in three years, some Quebecers may soon have to contemplate what previously must have seemed unthinkable: leaving their homes.

Despite another flood coming so soon, Peloquin said he's not ready to think about leaving the big blue house by the water. Peloquin's usually idyllic street in Rigaud, 70 km west of Montreal, was more suited to the ducks and muskrats that swam freely in the water that filled the neighbourhood.

Kristan Hawkins: Colleges should run from ‘dangerous,’ costly abortion drugs on campus

Thursday 09:55 GMT

To protect the educational environment, avoid costly liability and legal costs, and affirm student health centers’ goal of doing no harm to those they serve, California legislators should reject the risky, costly and dangerous proposal that is SB-24.

With schools counting the costs of things like fraternities or credit card marketing on campuses, the renewed push to force all California college and university health care centers to distribute chemical abortion drugs is hard to fathom.

Thomas Friedman, a long-time member of The New York Times and columnist for the newspaper since 1995, has been scathing in his criticism of President Trump.

Opinion: We must resist the perverse logic of religious terrorism

Thursday 17:16 GMT

What is often just as disturbing as the cruel attacks themselves is how authorities failed to prevent mass murder despite the information they had in advance.

That is exactly what the masterminds of these crimes, who attempt to clothe terrorism in religious zeal, are hoping for in order to justify their next deeds.

Foreign groups likely behind Sri Lanka attacks, U.S. ambassador says

Thursday 08:03 GMT

The scale and sophistication of the Easter Sunday attacks on churches and hotels in Sri Lanka suggested the involvement of an external group such as Islamic State, the U.S. ambassador said on Wednesday as the death toll jumped to 359.

“If you look at the scale of the attacks, the level of coordination, the sophistication of them, it’s not implausible to think there are foreign linkages,” the U.S. ambassador to Sri Lanka, Alaina Teplitz, told reporters in Colombo. “Exploring potential linkages is going to be part of (investigations),” she said.
