RBC customer out of pocket after fraud: What you need to know if you e-transfer money

A system to transfer money online — used over a million times a day in Canada — is not as safe as it advertises, says a Royal Bank customer who had $1,734 stolen during an e-transfer.

The theft occurred after Anne Hoover of Peterborough, Ont., e-transferred money from her RBC account to her friend Fran Fearnley, only to have a fraudster intercept the transaction and divert the money to his own account at another bank.

"I always use e-transfer," says Hoover. "I thought it was a safe way to send money."

Americans driving to Canada for cheaper insulin as prices skyrocket

As insulin prices soar to new heights, some Americans have decided to cross the Canadian border to obtain cheaper medication.

People from Minnesota who are part of the #Insulin4All initiative organised a "Caravan to Canada", driving five hours to purchase insulin for $30 (£23) a vial rather than the $300 they would pay in the US.

RadicalPress Fundraising campaign by Arthur Topham, charged in Canada under the guise of "Hate Speech" by a forign lobby

Dear Supporters of Freedom of Speech,

PLEASE TAKE NOTE: this is a fundraiser for legal defense/challenge purposes.

As many of you are likely aware I was arrested again at my home in Cottonwood, B.C. on Monday, August 6th, 2018 by the Surrey based BC Hate Crime Team, allegedly for breaching my Probation Order. I was held in jail at the Quesnel, B.C. RCMP detachment while the "Team" awaited approval for a search warrant. When it was signed by a judge they entered my home and removed my computers and electronic files plus my hardcopy password book. I was released around 10 pm and driven back to my home by Cpl. Anthony Statham, lead officer for the "Team" after signing a "Promise to Appear" form stating that I would be present at the Quesnel Provincial Courthouse on October 16, 2018.

A "Cancer On Our Economy": Report Finds Over $7 Billion Laundered Through British Columbia In 2018

It may have taken a while, but now that housing prices are starting to crash in Vancouver, BC legislators are finally starting to get wise to the fact that the province has been a hot bed for money laundering. It was an easy problem to ignore with prices on the way up, but on the way down - not so much.

And so an independent report released on Thursday concluded that an astounding $7.4 billion was laundered in British Columbia in 2018, out of a total of $46.7 billion laundered across Canada throughout the same period. The report was published by an expert panel led by former B.C. deputy attorney general Maureen Maloney.

Pompeo says Canadian claim to Northwest Passage is 'illegitimate'

Canada's claim over the Northwest Passage is "illegitimate," U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Monday in a major speech to the Arctic Council that Canadian experts called both provocative and frequently inaccurate.

Pompeo offered his characterization during a wide-ranging speech in Finland in which he also warned against China's increased Arctic presence, saying it threatens North American security and could be harmful to the environment.

Over 10,000 Evacuated in Canada Floods as Ottawa Mayor Warns ‘Worst Yet to Come’

The evacuation comes after the Canadian capital Ottawa declared a state of emergency last Thursday, ordering 400 troops to be deployed to the city to help fight massive flooding which hit the east of the country.

More than 10,000 people have already been evacuated from their homes in flood-ravaged New Brunswick, Quebec and Ontario, according to CTV News.

The evacuation comes as Federal Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale said that the situation in Ontario was “potentially worsening”, while in Brunswick, around 9,200 residences and cottages remain flooded along with 7,000 other properties.

‘Worst’ anti-Semitic attack on Kosher cafe revealed to be scam by owners

An anti-Semitic attack on a kosher cafe in Canada that police described as one of the “worst” they had seen has been revealed as a ruse by the owners. A vigil and a fundraising campaign had been set up to support the family.
The fake attack saw the BerMax Caffe and Bistro in Winnipeg spray painted with anti-Semitic graffiti and “severely vandalized.” A woman was assaulted and taken to the hospital for treatment, CBC reported at the time.

Police charged the owners with public mischief after an investigation involving 25 police officers and 1,000 hours of work revealed it to be nothing more than a scam. “In the end, we found evidence of a crime. It just wasn’t a hate crime,” Police Chief Danny Smyth said, Global News reports.

Hezbollah: US Iran Sanctions Amount to Aggression Against Entire World

The secretary general of the Lebanese Hezbollah resistance movement denounced US economic sanctions against Iran, describing the punitive measures as “an act of aggression” against all world nations.

“US efforts to increase economic pressure on Iran, especially its pledge to drive the country’s oil exports to zero, will have negative repercussions and will affect the entire world, including the US itself,” Seyed Hassan Nasrallah said as he addressed his supporters via a televised speech broadcast live from the Lebanese capital Beirut on Monday evening, presstv reported.

Venezuela: Canada Imposes Fresh Sanctions as Pompeo Vows to ‘Tighten Noose’

Ottawa imposed sanctions on 43 Venezuelan officials Wednesday, according to a statement by Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland.

While the statement did not specify the names of those targeted, Freeland indicated that they were “high-ranking officials” or “governors.”

“Canada is committed to supporting the peaceful restoration of constitutional democracy in Venezuela,” she added.

Previous Canadian sanctions had targeted a total of 70 Venezuelan officials.

The measures by the Trudeau government come on the heels of successive rounds of sanctions imposed against Caracas by the US Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC). After sanctioning Venezuela’s oil, mining and banking sectors, Washington has recently gone after vessels and cargo companies involved in Venezuelan oil shipments. The latest round targeted four shipping companies and nine vessels on Friday.

NATO at 70: Global Enforcers of Western Imperialism

Formed in the years immediately following World War II, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), then comprised of Canada, the United States, and ten European powers, was presented to the world as a defensive pact, wherein an attack on one member is an attack on all. The Encyclopedia Britannica explains that NATO was established and conceived as “a counterweight to Soviet armies stationed in central and eastern Europe after World War II.”

Today, seventy years after its founding, the Soviet Union is no more. NATO has increased its military involvement in theatres around the world, including the former Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, the Mediterranean, and Libya. Many of these missions were framed as ‘humanitarian interventions’ or disaster relief as opposed to aggression.

Alberta in Canada has Tried a Carbon Tax — It’s Been a Disaster

By Robert P. Murphy

The Fraser Institute in Canada recently released my study critiquing the province of Alberta’s approach to carbon pricing. My analysis for Fraser confirms what I’ve been arguing on the pages of IER for years: in the United States, conservatives and libertarians should run from any “carbon tax deal” that promises to shrink the size of government while battling climate change. No matter their promises, in practice government-imposed “carbon pricing” schemes never live up to the guidelines for “efficiency” laid down by their proponents. In this post I’ll illustrate myth vs. reality in the case of Alberta...

China's Han Superstate: The New Third Reich

Authored by Gordon Chang via The Gatestone Institute,

More than a million people, for no reason other than their ethnicity or religion, are held in concentration camps in what Beijing calls the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region and what traditional inhabitants of the area, the Uighurs, say is East Turkestan. In addition to Uighurs, ethnic Kazakhs are also held in these facilities.

Families in this troubled area, shown on maps as the northwestern portion of the People's Republic of China, are being torn apart. The children of imprisoned Uighur and Kazakh parents are "confined" to "schools" that are separated from the outside by barbed wire and heavy police patrols. They are denied instruction in their own language, forced to learn Mandarin Chinese. The controls are part of a so-called "Hanification" policy, a program of forced assimilation. "Han" is the name of China's dominant ethnic group.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think that Gordon Chang "jumped the shark" in his characterization of these re-education camps as "China's 3rd Reich"

China is, and will most probably remain, at least for the foreseeable future, a dictatorship.

But the larger question is, what should the US government do about it, and is it the US government's place to do this, considering that certain of our alphabet soup Federal agencies are still torturing, or outsourcing torture on prisoners of war?!?

IT’S STILL OPEN: WILL THE GUANTÁNAMO BAY PRISON BECOME A 2020 ISSUE?

The article goes on to state: "In the 17 long years since the naval base was used to detain prisoners merely suspected of having something to do with anti-American terrorism, 780 men have passed through its walls. Today, 40 men remain. Some of those men — like Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, or KSM, the alleged mastermind of the 9/11 attacks — first went through a secret CIA-operated outpost within the military base, known as a black site.

Rosenberg revealed last month that CIA Director Gina Haspel may have had a stint running a CIA outpost at GTMO, which was operated from 2003 to 2004. Rosenberg got the scoop from a recently declassified transcript of a secret court hearing last year, in which KSM’s defense lawyer argued that Haspel’s past involvement at the prison makes a fair trial impossible."

I therefore, would politely suggest, that President Trump not allow himself to be overly troubled by this; the most important situation with China at this point, is creating a "win/win" trade program, with which the US and China can feel good.

Recording Exposes Top Trudeau Aide Leaning On Canadian Attorney General To Drop Case

Try as he might to convince the Canadian people that he was merely looking out for the jobs of thousands of Quebecois, the Canadian Press and Parliament keep poking holes in Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's story in a corruption scandal that has tanked his poll numbers and stoked calls for his resignation.

The latest blow landed on Friday when a parliamentary committee published a clandestine recording made by former Canadian Justice Minister and AG Jody Wilson-Raybould of a phone call with former top bureaucrat and Trudeau advisor that clearly substantiates her story that she was "hounded" by Trudeau and his political henchmen, who subjected her to "inappropriate" political pressure over her decision to move ahead with the prosecution of SNC-Lavalin, a Quebec-based engineering firm accused of taking bribes from the Libyan government.

Traffic gets tricky as snow, ice pellets, freezing rain hit capital region Saturday

Our friends at Environment Canada have put off spring yet again with a freezing rain warning in effect for at least Saturday.

This covers both the Ottawa North (Kanata to Orléans) and Ottawa South (Richmond to Metcalfe) weather regions.

In short, freezing rain is expected today.

In more detail, it should start snowing early Saturday morning with a few centimetres of accumulation possible. Winds will be out of the east.

Snow had changed to ice pellets by the noon hour, and it was expected to mix with or change to freezing rain.

Moscow Believes Western Sabotage Caused Venezuelan Blackout

"According to the country’s legitimate government headed by President Maduro, as well as to information from other credible sources, Venezuela’s power grid was attacked from abroad," Zakharova noted.

"It was an attempt to remotely influence control systems at major electrical substations where Canadian-made equipment is installed," Zakharova pointed out. "Clearly, those who carried out this act of aggression were well aware of its operation algorithms and vulnerabilities. It is them who are to blame for the loss of human life, including in hospitals that were left without power," she said.

Jordan Peterson's Cambridge Fellowship Dropped Over 'Proud Islamophobe' T-Shirt

Canadian clinical psychologist and self-described “professor against political correctness” Jordan Peterson has already slammed the University of Cambridge over its decision to rescind his visiting fellowship as “a serious error of judgement”.

Cambridge University Vice-Chancellor Stephen Toope said on Sunday that a two-month fellowship offer to Jordan Peterson was withdrawn “as a consequence” of the institution becoming aware of an image in which the psychology professor is pictured with a man wearing an “I’m a proud Islamophobe” shirt last month.

“The faculty became aware of a photograph of Professor Peterson posing with his arm around a man wearing a T-shirt that clearly bore the slogan ‘I’m a proud Islamophobe’”, Toope stated.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Had Jordan himself worn the “I’m a proud Islamophobe” shirt, the University of Cambridge might have a point. But like the New Jersey rain tax, Jordan has no control over what other people wear. I agree the University of Cambridge overreacted on this one.

Top US General Denies Plans to Leave 1,000 Troops in Syria

US Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Joe Dunford issued a statement Monday denying weekend media reports that the US plans to leave around 1,000 troops in Syria, saying the reports are “factually incorrect.”

Dunford presented the current planned “residual force” as 200, saying that this hadn’t changed since February. The US announced 200 would stay on February 21, but on February 22 officially increased that number to 400.

It’s not clear from Dunford’s statement where the “incorrect” aspect of the new report, which came out of a Wall Street Journal, exists. That report suggested that the 1,000 figure was not yet finalized, but was being discussed. Dunford’s comments didn’t include any details on what is actually being discussed, but just that nothing was finalized.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think the multiple troop numbers being given, are simply a way of creating confusion about how many US troops the US does have in Syria.

A van speeds across Toronto sidewalks, leaving 10 pedestrians dead

Ten people are dead and 15 are injured after the driver of a van plowed into multiple pedestrians in Toronto on Monday in what appears to be a deliberate act, Toronto Police Chief Mark Saunders said.

Saunders said the suspected driver, Alek Minassian, 25, of Richmond Hill, Ontario, was in custody. Minassian was arrested in a white rental van less than 30 minutes after police received a 911 call, Saunders said.
Minassian was previously known to Toronto authorities, according to a US law enforcement official briefed on the matter. Authorities said Minassian left a trail of destruction nearly a mile long, north of midtown Toronto.

At the same time, new sanctions have been imposed on 8 enterprises for their alleged role in the Ukrainian crisis.

According to the US State Department, Washington's new set of restrictions have been introduced in coordination with the European Union and Canada.

Canada won't ground Boeing 737 Max 8s despite moves by European Union, Asian and Middle Eastern countries

Civil aviation authorities and airlines have grounded more than 40 per cent of the world's in-service fleet of Boeing 737 Max 8s — the type of jet involved in an Ethiopian Airlines crash that killed 157 people, including 18 Canadians.

But even after the entire European Union, Australia and others decided to suspend the jet from their airspace Tuesday, Transport Minister Marc Garneau reiterated that Canada has no plans to follow suit.

The U.S. is also allowing the jet to continue to fly.

Sunday's disaster — following another fatal crash of a 737 Max 8 jet in Indonesia five months ago — has caused alarm in the international aviation industry and wiped billions of dollars off the market value of the world's biggest plane-maker.

Enbridge's Line 3 Pipeline Expansion Delayed In Latest "Major Blow" To Canadian Energy Industry

Enbridge Inc. is delaying the date when it expects its replacement Line 3 crude oil pipeline to be in expanded service, in what is being called a "major blow" to the oil industry in Canada. According to Bloomberg, the project had previously been set to begin shipping crude in Q4 2019. But now the company is pushing back construction due to slow permitting in Minnesota.

Enbridge expects the pipeline to begin service in the second half of 2020 now, as its Minnesota permits won't be complete until November of this year. Federal permits won't be received until as long as 60 days after that.

The Face of Communism Close to Home

Admittedly the taxi driver's remarks were prejudiced but prejudice is another word for experience. Even a Sikh immigrant knows what he knows. He has a right to express his opinion, whether or not he is correct. If ignorance were a crime, we'd all be in jail.

If they had passed a church and the driver made a disparaging remark about priest-paedophiles, do you think he would have been reported? "Tolerance" is totally selective, a weapon of political coercion.

The banker-controlled government and the CBC are imposing First Nations interests and identity on the country as a way of undermining national identity. This is a globalist agenda and has nothing to do with tolerance and fairness.

We believe in free speech and free inquiry. We do not believe in thought crimes.

Gigantic 2,789-square meter snow maze that took 12 workers three weeks to build in -30F temperatures in Canada officially breaks the record for the biggest in the world

A Canadian man has broken the world record for the largest snow maze on Earth - with the help of 300 semi-trucks and just over 4000 tonnes of man-made powder.

Clint Masse's incredible creation measured in at a staggering 2,789.114 square meters when the Guinness World Records visited Manitoba, in Canada last month. It eclipsed the previous record by over 1000 sq ft.

Masse has been crafting corn mazes on his farm in St. Adolphe for two decades, but after a difficult harvest last year, the father of two came up with a unorthodox idea to turn his family's fortunes around.

'In October 2018, we had some of the worst weather we've ever had,' Masse told Dailymail.com. 'Then one of our staff showed us the current Guinness World Record for a snow maze, and we thought about it and said: "You know, it's going to be a tonne of work - but it's doable."'

Ontario police find meth smuggled into Canada through new Ford cars built in Mexico

A notorious Mexican cartel stashed bricks of methamphetamine in the spare tires of new cars before sending the vehicles to Canada by rail in a sprawling drug smuggling operation, authorities alleged Wednesday.

Ontario Provincial Police said they found 180 kilograms of meth during their investigation, which began when employees at four different Ford dealerships reported suspicious bags inside tires that were in the trunks of new Fusion cars.

Police said the cars were built at Ford’s assembly plant in Hermosillo, Mexico, before being put on northbound trains.

“The powerful Sinaloa cartel is well entrenched in that area of Mexico,” said OPP Supt. Bryan MacKillop. “We are very certain that they are ultimately responsible for these drugs.”

Arrested Huawei CFO Sues Canada Alleging Breach of Constitutional Rights

Detained Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou now claims that Canada subjected her to detention, interrogation and search without telling her she was under arrest.

Wanzhou, CFO of Chinese tech company Huawei, arrested in Canada, has filed a lawsuit against Canadian officials, claiming her constitutional rights were violated during the arrest.

The lawsuit, filed in Canada's Supreme Court against federal government branches the Canadian Border Services Agency and the Royal Crown Mounted Police, asserts that "under the guise of a routine border check, unlawfully subjected [Meng] to detention, search and interrogation to extract evidence from her before she was arrested and provided with her rights under the Charter."

The lawsuit seeks damages for "misfeasance in public office and false imprisonment based on alleged multiple failures of those Canadian government officials to comply with the rule of law," the statement said," a statement by her lawyers, Gudmundseth Mickelson LLP.

CHINA ACCUSES ARRESTED CANADIANS OF STEALING STATE SECRETS

SOURCE: ALJAZEERA.COM
China has accused two Canadians currenctly held there of acting together to steal state secrets and intelligence, according to state media.

Former diplomat Michael Kovrig and entrepreneur Michael Spavor were arrested in China in early December soon after the detention in Canada of Meng Wanzhou, the chief financial officer of Chinese tech giant Huawei, who is currently facing extradition to the United States.

On Monday, China's official Xinhua news agency cited unidentified Chinese authorities as saying Kovrig violated Chinese laws by acting as a spy and stealing state secrets and intelligence with the help of Spavor. It was the first time the two men's cases have been linked.

It said Kovrig often entered China using an ordinary passport and business visas and acquired information from Spavor, his "main contact".

Canada Allows Extradition Of Huawei CFO To Move Forward

In a landmark - if widely expected - decision, the Department of Justice in Ottawa has ruled that extradition proceedings against Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou, who was arrested on the same day that President Trump and President Xi struck their trade truce in Buenos Aires, will proceed.

Though whether or not she will face trial in the US must still be determined by a Canadian court, a process that could take months or even years, the fact that her extradition is moving forward is still a big moment in a case that has captivated investors and elicited threats of retribution against Ottawa from Beijing.

Meng is wanted in the US on charges of fraud and sanctions violations for her alleged role in deceiving HSBC and other banks into processing transactions for Huawei that were purportedly linked to Iran. US prosecutors filed roughly a dozen charges against Meng and Huawei in January, as well as a formal request for her extradition, according to the BBC.

POLICE IN CANADA ARE TRACKING PEOPLE’S ‘NEGATIVE’ BEHAVIOR IN A ‘RISK' DATABASE

Police, social services, and health workers in Canada are using shared databases to track the behaviour of vulnerable people—including minors and people experiencing homelessness—with little oversight and often without consent.

Documents obtained by Motherboard from Ontario’s Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services (MCSCS) through an access to information request show that at least two provinces—Ontario and Saskatchewan—maintain a “Risk-driven Tracking Database” that is used to amass highly sensitive information about people’s lives. Information in the database includes whether a person uses drugs, has been the victim of an assault, or lives in a “negative neighborhood.”

The Risk-driven Tracking Database (RTD) is part of a collaborative approach to policing called the Hub model that partners cops, school staff, social workers, health care workers, and the provincial government.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This makes me very worried about Canadians who may be "targeted" by people with an axe to grind, turning in their neighbors just out of spite or contempt.

I wonder who has the job of "looking after" Christian pacifist activists, who are completely against war as an immoral way of resolving international situations, and look to document the truth as they see it.

Alleged Threats, Bribes, Prostitutes: Growing Scandal Threatens to Bring Down Canada’s Trudeau

Many people outside of Canada are unfamiliar with Bombardier, but the Montreal-based aerospace and rail transportation behemoth is a global corporation with more than 65,000 employees in 28 countries.

It is also a violator of international law participating in settler-colony projects that dispossess indigenous people, according to David P. Thomas, an associate professor in the Department of Politics and International Relations at Mount Allison University in New Brunswick, Canada.

Why Are Canadian Special Forces in Haiti?

Canadian troops may have recently been deployed to Haiti, even though the government has not asked Parliament or consulted the public for approval to send soldiers to that country.

Last week the Haiti Information Project photographed heavily-armed Canadian troops patrolling the Port-au-Prince airport. According to a knowledgeable source I emailed the photos to, they were probably special forces. The individual in "uniform is (most likely) a member of the Canadian Special Operations Regiment (CSOR) from Petawawa", wrote the person who asked not to be named. "The plainclothes individuals are most likely members of JTF2. The uniformed individual could also be JTF2 but at times both JTF2 and CSOR work together." (CSOR is a sort of farm team for the ultra-elite Joint Task Force 2.)

Justin Trudeau's Government In Turmoil After Top Aide Resigns Over Corruption Allegations

When he swept into office back in 2015, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau promised supporters of a Liberal Party reinvigorated by a decade of conservative rule that he would bring about "real change" - both in Ottawa, and for a Liberal Party marred by allegations of corruption.

So far, he has largely failed at both, cozying up to the country's energy industry while masking his maintenance of the pro-business status quo with legalized marijuana and a "progressive" agenda that has included banning misgendering and hiring the first cabinet in Canada's history with an equal number of men and women.

Yet as Canada's leader braces for what promises to be a bruising reelection campaign ahead of a vote in October, his office has been marred by a blossoming scandal surrounding reports that it pressured the former attorney general into dropping years-old corruption charges against Montreal-based SNC-Lavalin, a Canadian construction company with close ties to Trudeau's party.

More than 7,000 sign petition to sell Montana to Canada for $1 trillion to pay down national debt

More than 7,000 people have signed a petition to “sell” Montana to Canada for $1 trillion and use the proceeds to pay down the national debt – and it seems our northern neighbors would gladly welcome this bite out of the 49th Parallel.

“We have too much debt and Montana is useless,” says the text of the Change.org petition launched last week.

To get Canada to agree, “Just tell them it has beavers or something.”

That’s the entirety of the “cause,” though the slew of comments tacked onto the end by people giving their reasons for signing fleshed that out, as names were being added every three to four minutes on Monday.

Those are key findings of the first survey to ask Jewish Canadians about their views on the situation in Palestine.

Trudeau in ethics probe over handling of Libyan contract fraud

Canadian PM Justin Trudeau is being investigated for illegally attempting to shield engineering firm SNC-Lavalin from criminal fraud and corruption charges involving millions of dollars in bribes to the Libyan government.

Trudeau claims he “welcomes” the probe, launched by the Conflict of Interest and Ethics Commissioner on Monday after requests from two New Democrat MPs followed on the heels of an incendiary report published last week in the Globe and Mail that placed him at the center of what the Conservative opposition has termed an “unprecedented” effort to illegally influence a criminal proceeding.
