A TRIDENT missile dramatically misfired and crashed into the ocean yards from the British nuclear submarine that launched it, The Sun can reveal.
The second failed launch in a row – after a misfire in 2016 – happened while Defence Secretary Grant Shapps was on board HMS Vanguard to
CALGARY, Alberta (LifeSiteNews) – A newly elected Conservative member of the Legislative Assembly of Alberta (MLA) praised the Freedom Convoy protesters for standing up for what “was right” in opposition to COVID mandates on the second anniversary of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government’s use of the Emergencies Act (EA) to quash the trucker-led protest in 2022.

Canada lambasted the Kremlin’s ambassador in Ottawa on Feb. 21 over the reported death of opposition leader Alexei Navalny in Russian custody.
The Canadian government says Ambassador Oleg Stepanov was summoned at the request of Foreign Affairs Minister Mélanie Joly.
Russia’s prison agency said on Feb. 16 that Mr. Navalny, who was serving a 19-year sentence in an Arctic penal colony, lost consciousness after a walk, and could not be revived.
President Vladimir Putin was quickly blamed for the death of his political opponent and leaders including Prime Minister Justin Trudeau vowed to hold Russia to account.
Two-thirds of Canadians oppose “cultural socialist” attitudes, says a survey and study by the Macdonald-Laurier Institute.
Key findings suggest that Canadians predominantly oppose the cultural socialist stance by a ratio of about 2 to 1, reflecting a “remarkable” similarity in opinion trends with their American and British counterparts.
The survey found minimal differences between Francophone and Anglophone Canadians on these issues. However, Canadians generally show higher trust in elite political culture, including journalists, teachers, and academics, than those in the broader Anglosphere.
Local families in the predominantly black Roxbury neighborhood of Boston are furious after the city shut down the local community center to instead use it to house more of President Joe Biden’s illegal border crossers.
Roxbury’s Melnea A. Cass Recreational Community Center, which was once a meeting place for Little League ball players, volleyball games, and other sports and community events, has now been dedicated to rows of cots for illegal border crossers, CBS, WBZ-TV Boston reported.
WBZ interviewed pre-teen Jeremiah Rodriguez who showed up at the community center on Feb. 17 under the mistaken impression that his community baseball team was using the facility for batting practice. He was devastated to find out his community center was now closed to him.
Geopolitical strife is dominating the environment of international relations and injecting uncertainty into global markets.
In this unstable climate, businesses and governments are now laser-focused on security. There are two big risks to economic security that democratic countries like Canada and S. Korea are confronting. One is an over-reliance on suppliers of critical goods, including energy, from countries governed by authoritarian regimes; energy weaponization is a critical threat. The second big risk is the potential of losing public support for the energy transition because of affordability issues and the consequent loss in industrial competitiveness.
As the Cold War was heating up in the late 1940s, U.S. Sen. Arthur Vandenberg said, “Politics stops at the water’s edge.” This sentiment is not shared by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberals, it seems.
In their quest to find, or, sometimes, create out of thin air, wedges to stem their nosedive in the polls, the Liberals increasingly turn to foreign policy issues for electoral salvation. However, such instrumentalization of foreign policy undermines relationships with allies and, by extension, the Canadian national interest.
‘Elderly couple told they had to sell home to house asylum seekers’ is a headline tailor-made for the anxieties of 2024. It is the kind of headline, indeed, that trumps the story itself: it confirms everything the typical conservative Telegraph reader intuits about what is going on across the West as we speak. The old order disappearing; a great wave of immigration replacing it; and all for some reason facilitated and even encouraged by the state – which, to top it off, forces the people already here, who can ill-afford it, to subsidise the process financially. That the headline also concerns housing
British Columbia is now involved in a debate over the Eby government’s plan to amend the Land Act and allow First Nations to acquire co-management rights over public lands — 95% of the province. Critics say this will amount to a First Nations veto over almost all future economic development because so many of the province’s main industries — forestry, mining, oil and gas, hydroelectricity, tourism and recreation — rely on use of public land.
The Canada Border Services Agency last year assigned just 207 staff to criminal investigations nationwide including 48 in Greater Toronto, auto theft capital of Canada, records show. The disclosure follows a cabinet-sponsored conference on auto theft one MP dismissed as a “good photo op.”
“The number of investigators is limited,” said the internal Agency report. Agents were assigned to track fugitives, gun smugglers, money launderers, auto thieves and “others who commit criminal offences,” it said.
“Given the high number of leads received relative to the number of investigators available to conduct investigations, the program is only able to open a limited number of cases at a given time,” said the Evaluation Of The Criminal Investigations Program. The program had a $35.7 million annual budget. The report did not disclose now many criminals were intercepted.
