• Canada couple freed in terror entrapment case swiftly rearrested

    By Julie Gordon VANCOUVER (Reuters) - A Canadian judge freed a couple found guilty of planting homemade bombs at a crowded Canada Day holiday party in 2013, saying on Friday the "unsophisticated" pair were entrapped by police who themselves broke the law in their sting operation. The peace bond would make the couple subject to release conditions for up to twelve months, lawyer Mark Jette told Reuters, adding the couple had since been released on bail and would be challenging the order. Earlier on Friday, British Columbia Supreme Court Justice Catherine Bruce ruled the RCMP manipulated the "unsophisticated" couple into carrying out a plot, saying that they did not have the mental capacity to plan on their own.

  • Huge, once-hated fish now seen as weapon against Asian carp

    It's a toothy giant that can grow longer than a horse and heavier than a refrigerator, a fearsome-looking prehistoric fish that plied U.S. waters from the Gulf of Mexico to Illinois until it disappeared from many states a half-century ago. Persecuted by anglers and deprived of places to spawn, the alligator gar — with a head that resembles an alligator and two rows of needlelike teeth — survived primarily in southern states in the tributaries of Mississippi River and Gulf of Mexico after being declared extinct in several states farther north. To many, it was a freak, a "trash fish" that threatened sportfish, something to be exterminated.

  • Clinton roars against Trump as a hacking distraction arises

    Fresh off a spirited convention, Hillary Clinton told prospective voters Friday they face a "stark choice" in November and pressed ahead with the scalding rhetoric against her Republican rival that marked many of the speeches in Philadelphia. Another distraction arose, however, as her aides acknowledged that a hacking attack that exposed Democratic Party emails also reached into a computer system used by her own campaign. Rallying in Colorado, Donald Trump denounced Clinton's convention speech as "full of lies" and said he's starting to agree with those calling for Clinton to be locked up.

  • Ottawa should buy Port of Churchill, model it after airports, says mayor

    Mayor Mike Spence says the Port of Churchill can be saved if the federal government purchases back the land and models its operation after airports in Canada. Earlier this week U.S.-based OmniTrax announced it would be closing the Port of Churchill after a dismal year of low revenues in 2015 and a similarly slow summer this year. Spence believes it's time for the federal government to buy back northern Canada's only deep sea port and create a non-share capital corporation to run it.
