Islamism Killed My Partner. Why Won’t the West Fight It? My daughters have grown up without a father because of an ideology that Western politicians now often refuse to name

By Valerie / June 19, 2024 /

On the evening of November 13, 2015, I recorded a video of my partner, Guillaume, laughing and dancing round the living room with our two daughters, aged four and seven. Just a few minutes later, he left our apartment in eastern Paris to go to the Bataclan concert hall.

A rock critic who wrote under the name Guillaume B. Decherf, he loved nothing more than good music, and was excited about seeing Eagles of Death Metal that night. In his review for Les Inrockuptibles, he had praised the band’s latest album. Its “sole aim,” he wrote, was “to give pleasure,” before signing off with a flourish: “Plaisir partagé!” A pleasure shared.

On Wednesday, Canada officially declared Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps a terrorist entity. The country’s government itself was also designated as one that had “engaged in terrorism and systematic or gross human rights violations.”

The announcement was made by Public Safety Minister Dominic LeBlanc, alongside Foreign Minister Melanie Joly and other members of Justin Trudeau’s Liberal cabinet. The move comes following increased pressure from Persian Canadians and Conservative politicians in the wake of the downing of PS752, Mahsa Amini’s death, and the ensuing abuse perpetrated by officials as they cracked down on protests against the regime.

Ottawa Inner City Health has launched a program designed to rebuild a sense of community among ByWard Market drug users — and to address the social disorder that now troubles the neighbourhood.

The Block Leaders Program employs drug users and shelter residents to do the hard work of refashioning human connections shredded by fentanyl, the COVID-19 pandemic and the death toll wrought by a toxic drug supply.

Amazon-Powered AI Cameras Used to Detect Emotions of Unwitting UK Train Passengers

By Roli / June 17, 2024 /

Thousands of people catching trains in the United Kingdom likely had their faces scanned by Amazon software as part of widespread artificial intelligence trials, new documents reveal. The image recognition system was used to predict travelers’ age, gender, and potential emotions—with the suggestion that the data could be used in advertising systems in the future.

During the past two years, eight train stations around the UK—including large stations such as London’s Euston and Waterloo, Manchester Piccadilly, and other smaller stations—have tested AI surveillance technology with CCTV cameras with the aim of alerting staff to safety incidents and potentially reducing certain types of crime.

The scope of the AI trials, elements of which have previously been reported, was revealed in a cache of documents obtained in response to a freedom of information request by civil liberties group Big Brother Watch.

Driving While High More ‘Common’ Following Cannabis Legalization, Federal Research Finds

By Iron Will / June 17, 2024 /

Driving while high on marijuana has become more “common” among Canadians since the substance became legal in 2018, according to recent in-house federal research.

“There was widespread agreement that cannabis-impaired driving is common among those in their social networks,” said the report prepared for Health Canada, which was first covered by Blacklock’s Reporter.
“There is also widespread agreement it is more common than alcohol-impaired driving. While driving impaired was not condoned, participants typically believed cannabis does not have the same impact.”

The January 2024 research by the Department of Health found that risk perception concerning cannabis dependence was low among users, with many saying they are not dependent on the drug and could stop using it at any time. Those who felt they were dependent on marijuana said they didn’t have any concerns with it.

Environment Canada Issues Heat Warning for Ontario, Eastern Canada as Temperatures to Soar to 45 Degrees

By Iron Will / June 17, 2024 /

Environment Canada has issued an extreme heat advisory, predicting “dangerously hot and humid conditions” for parts of Ontario, Quebec, and New Brunswick throughout most of the week.

Southern, central, and northeastern Ontario can expect to see the thermometer creeping above the 30-degree mark beginning today with the humidex hitting 40 degrees or more June 18 through June 20, according to Environment Canada.
Daytime highs are forecasted to range from 30 to 35 degrees, with the humidity making it feel as hot as 45 degrees in Windsor, London, Toronto, Kingston, and the surrounding areas. Ottawa temperatures will be slightly lower with the humidity index at up to 40 degrees while much of Northeastern Ontario will see the humidex creep up to 42 degrees.

“There will be little relief through the overnight as lows are expected to be 18 to 23 degrees Celsius with humidex values of 26 to 30,” Environment Canada said in its advisory for southern Ontario. “Hot and humid air can also bring deteriorating air quality and can result in the Air Quality Health Index approaching the high risk category.”
