VANCOUVER -- A British Columbia man's Facebook posts allegedly threatening violence in support of the Islamic State group provide enough evidence to suggest he poses a security risk to Canada and should be deported, an official for the Canada Border Services Agency says.

Othman Hamdan's lawyer has argued his client's online views amounted to freedom of expression as guaranteed by the charter.

Those violent, gun-toting Swedes...

...wait a minute...diversity is our strength

COPENHAGEN – Swedish police say several people have been injured after shots were fired in Malmo, Sweden’s third-largest city Monday. Tabloid Aftonbladet quoted witnesses saying they heard what sounded like 15 to 20 shots. Witness Jonatan Burhoff told the newspaper he saw wounded people being carried to private cars that drove off “as fast as possible.”

Suburban feuds between criminal gangs fighting over territory have taken place in major Swedish cities in recent years. Aftonbladet said the shootings took place next to a police station so officers were on the scene immediately.

In 2015, President Obama told America he only learned that his secretary of state Hillary Clinton was illegally using a private email server to conduct public business after The New York Times published a story saying so. Today's release of a Department of Justice inspector general report shows that was a lie.

"FBI analysts and Prosecutor 2 told us that former President Barack Obama was one of the 13 individuals with whom Clinton had direct contact using her clintonemail.com account," the report says in a footnote on page 89.

"Obama, like other high level government officials, used a pseudonym for his username on his official government email account."

Ask a part-time drama teacher

You, the consumer, pay through the nose to enable Quebec dairy producers to live large...

For decades, Canada has protected its dairy industry, erecting trade barriers that diminish foreign competition and result in higher prices for Canadian consumers. Fluid milk is 241 percent, cheese is 245.5 percent, ice cream is 277 percent, cream is 292.5 percent, and butter is 298.5 percent.

While this has prompted longstanding complaints by the United States and other exporters, the tariffs have survived, thanks in part to a strong dairy lobby that Canadian politicians have been loath to oppose.
