Obama to Jews: Help Me Violate the Constitution for Iran!

Obama to Jews: Help Me Violate the Constitution for Iran! President Barack Obama met on Monday with a group of Jewish leaders at the White House in an effort to win their support for the Iran deal–and for passing that deal without approval from Congress. The details of the meeting were not posted, but The Hill reports that the Obama administration sees the outreach as a key part of its effort to prevent the Corker bill, which would require congressional approval of an Iran deal, from reaching the two-thirds majority threshold. According to the Treaty Clause of the U.S. Constitution… View Article

Alachua County’s armored vehicle makes traffic stop after driver flips the bird

By Arek Sarkissian Staff writer The Alachua County Sheriff’s Office has launched an investigation into why deputies in a beefy armored vehicle performed a traffic stop on a Gainesville man who allegedly directed an obscene hand gesture toward them. Lucas Jewell, 23, recorded his interaction on a cellphone with a team of ASO deputies in special-operations uniforms after the imposing Lenco Bear Cat Armored Personnel Carrier stopped his Ford Taurus at the Alachua County Headquarters Library downtown. In an ASO report written for “informational purposes,” Deputy Charles Drake wrote that he and his colleagues were headed east along the 1400… View Article

Why Canada should abolish the Indian Act and reserve system

Michael Den Tandt: Why Canada should abolish the Indian Act and reserve system By Michael Den Tandt April 13, 2015 Should a national public inquiry be convened to shine a klieg light on the plight of missing and murdered indigenous women? Absolutely. But let there be no flinching from the result, wherever it may lead — even if that is a final indictment of the parlous reserve system itself, and a concerted push to abolish the Indian Act, appalling racist relic that it is, once and for all. RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson caused a stir Friday with the release of… View Article

Parliament Hill: Unearthed artifacts tell pre-Confederation story

Parliament Hill: Unearthed artifacts tell pre-Confederation story If Parliament Hill has sometimes seemed throughout its history like a boozy, male-dominated powder keg, it’s worth noting that’s partly what it was built on. Recent archeological digs outside some of the main buildings in the precinct have turned up tens of thousands of artifacts from the early 19th century. They tell a story of life before Sir John A. Macdonald, before MPs and senators, and before Ottawa was even called Ottawa. Starting in 1827, the area that is now Parliament Hill was called Barrack Hill, a staging ground for the British Royal… View Article

The high court will deliver its ruling in a pair of cases involving mandatory minimum sentences for gun crimes. The Ontario Court of Appeal struck down the law in 2013, calling it “cruel and unusual punishment,” so the provincial attorney general and its federal counterpart are appealing the ruling. The Appeal Court struck down both the three-year mandatory minimum for a first offence of possessing a loaded prohibited… View Article

Canadians ditching cable

Canadians ditching cable A new report says more Canadians are choosing to cancel their cable TV and satellite packages and there’s no sign of the migration slowing down. The Convergence Consulting Group says about 95,000 fewer households had a cable TV or satellite subscription in 2014. That’s a dramatic increase in the number of people without TV cable packages. The previous year the number of TV subscriptions fell 13,000. Brahm Eiley, president of Toronto-based firm that completed the study, says he expects the industry to lose another 97,000 in 2015 as the shift away from paying for traditional TV services… View Article

Calgary Gun Show

Calgary Gun Show Dealers at this year’s Calgary Gun Show say that stricter rules on trigger locks go too far. The province is starting to enforce a trigger-lock law designed to make handling and transporting guns safer. The law has been in place for 15 years but hasn’t been enforced until now. Dealers say that the precaution is unnecessary. “We don’t look at them as a very safe device,” says Hank Holm, president of the Alberta Arms and Cartridge Collectors’ Association. “If you put these mechanical key trigger locks onto an action rifle, the action can still be operated,...

Citi Economist Says It Might Be Time to Abolish Cash

Citi Economist Says It Might Be Time to Abolish Cash Would this save the world economy? The world’s central banks have a problem. When economic conditions worsen, they react by reducing interest rates in order to stimulate the economy. But, as has happened across the world in recent years, there comes a point where those central banks run out of room to cut — they can bring interest rates to zero, but reducing them further below that is fraught with problems, the biggest of which is cash in the economy. In a new piece, Citi’s Willem Buiter looks at this problem,… View Article
