TORONTO — Ontario’s human rights commission has found that Black people in Toronto are “disproportionately” arrested, charged and subjected to use of force by the city’s police force.

It found that despite the fact Black people represent only about 8.8 per cent of the city’s population, they represented almost a third of all charges in the data.

In a February 2016 filmed speech, Hezbollah terror chief Hassan Nasrallah boasted that with several missiles his terror group could set off the ammonia stockpiled at Haifa port to set off an explosion that would be tantamount to a nuclear bomb and would kill tens of thousands of Israelis and ruin the lives of hundreds of thousands more.

“In other words Lebanon has a nuclear bomb. This is not an exaggeration,” Nasrallah said, laughing.

Witnesses say Maira Shahbaz was walking home on April 28 in the town of Madina when Nakash and two accomplices forced her into a car, fired several gunshots into the air, and sped away.

When her family reported the kidnapping, Nakash produced a “marriage certificate” that listed the girl’s age as 19, even though her family has a birth certificate proving she is only 14. The Muslim cleric who ostensibly signed the birth certificate denied any involvement in the “marriage” when questioned.

Joe Biden attempted to dismiss concerns about his apparent cognitive decline on Tuesday, but then seemingly put it on full display.

As a concerned American who also happens to be a physician, I’m just going to say it’s concerning to me that he sometimes is not able to complete a sentence, not really know where he’s at or what he’s doing and we’ve seen that countless times now,” former White House Physician Dr. Ronny Jackson said.

After saying some age “more gracefully” than others, he said, “If he was going to be president someday, that window seems to have closed in my mind.”

Jackson predicted Biden would not attend debates with Trump, but Jill Biden told Fox News on Tuesday he will be there.

It’s why they’re so happy he’s spending much of the campaign in his basement, rather than talking with people or appearing live on TV.

Confusion over a parked police cruiser and someone wearing a safety vest led two RCMP officers to start shooting at a person at a central Nova Scotia firehall being used as an emergency refuge centre during the manhunt for the gunman in last month's mass shooting.

It's unclear who was wearing a safety vest. Peers said that in addition to the RCMP officer stationed outside the hall, there was a Colchester County official there overseeing the evacuation centre.

The gunfire damaged one of the fire trucks. It left bullet holes in a stone monument to fallen members and in the walls of the white building which was left peppered with bullet holes.

The incident was over in a few seconds and the officers took off. The gunman at the centre of the manhunt was not in the area at the time.
