CTVThe RCMP say a police operation is ongoing at Vauquelin Boulevard, a residential street located south of Montreal.

Afternoon update:

A Canadian woman who was arrested this weekend on charges of mailing the poison ricin to the White House, had been deported back to Canada from South Texas after overstaying her visa in 2019, according to a report in The New York Times.

And Hidalgo County Sheriff Eddie Guerra on Monday afternoon said that “envelopes” of ricin were mailed to him and three others in South Texas associated with the case, but resulted in no injuries. Border Report reached out to Guerra but he said he could not comment and tweeted this is an “active federal investigation.”

Clown Court

An argument for electing judges;

Court of Queen’s Bench Justice Graeme Mitchell appeared Sunday at a closing ceremony for a young Metis man whom he ruled was allowed to stay on the provincial legislature’s lawn to finish a hunger strike over suicide rates.
 
Mitchell dismissed the government’s bid to remove Tristen Durocher’s teepee and found the bylaws that prohibit overnight camping on the grounds infringed on his charter rights as an Indigenous man.
 
During his stop at Durocher’s camp, Mitchell spoke to him and accepted a Metis sash presented by a supporter.

In Defense Of Looting

NPR;

Writer Vicky Osterweil’s book, In Defense of Looting, came out on Tuesday. When she finished it, back in April, she wrote (rather presciently) that “a new energy of resistance is building across the country.” Now, as protests and riots continue to grip cities, she argues that looting is a powerful tool to bring about real, lasting change in society.

And it seems to be working: Riot-Ravaged Minneapolis Businesses Can’t Rebuild Because the Insurance Won’t Cover It.

As for Vicky Osterweil’s property, that’s a different matter.

Y2Kyoto: McKenna Money

Toronto Sun;

“In 2017 and 2018 seven projects were funded for which researchers did not provide reports. Hence, their status is unknown,” said an Evaluation Of The Aquatic Climate Change Adaptation Services Program. “Under the current funding requirements there are no consequences if funded researchers do not submit reports, or reports are delayed.”
 
According to Blacklock’s, since 2017, the program, which is “the only federal program that advances research in the areas of aquatic climate change science,” cost $10.5 million, along with an extra $3.5 million in ongoing yearly spending.
 
The program has eight staff members, but “a federal website archiving the studies drew as few as fifty visits a month and was ‘hard to find and not easily navigable for users.’”

The Libranos: WE Gone

Jul 15, 2020, 17:30 ET

Reflecting the realities of COVID-19, we are cancelling WE Day activities for the foreseeable future. We are proud to have hosted 137 WE Days welcoming over 1.5 million students who earned their free tickets by contributing 70 million hours of service to 3,000+ charities and causes.
 
Finally, we recognize that 25 years of rapid expansion and ground-breaking social entrepreneurship has resulted in an organizational structure that is more complicated than it needs to be. We are proud of the social impact WE has enabled, but we realize that its structure needs to be easier to understand and more transparent for all our stakeholders. We also recognize it is time to review some of our policies and practices.

“…the agency had not touched thousands of files for years”

CBSA has lost track of 34,700 people due to be deported

The federal auditor general says Canada’s border agency has failed to promptly remove most of the people under orders to leave the country.
 
In a report tabled in Parliament today, the auditor says the Canada Border Services Agency‘s efforts were hampered by poor data quality and case-management flaws, resulting in avoidable delays in thousands of cases.

But wait! It gets better.

The auditor suggested reviving a program that paid failed refugee claimants a small amount of money to leave Canada, an idea the CBSA agreed with in its response.

Minneapolis Neighborhood Vows No More Cops

Keeping the promise not to call the police has proven more difficult than imagined, as some residents have avoided the park altogether after being catcalled and are fearing for their children’s safety. Others said they had trouble sleeping at night, fearing campers would force their way into their homes.
 
“I’m not being judgmental,” Carrie Nightshade, 44, told the Times, explaining she no longer allows her children, 12 and 9, to play in the park by themselves. “It’s not personal. It’s just not safe….

New Rules

Uh oh…

Jimmy Kimmel, who urged actor Tom Arnold to release an alleged “N-word” tape of President Trump in 2018, admitted years ago that he imitated rapper Snoop Dogg’s voice for a track in a 1996 Christmas album — an original song in which Kimmel used the “N-word” several times. […]
 
Fox News additionally has obtained audio from the Christmas album, “A Family Christmas In Your A–,” which came out of the “Kevin & Bean” radio show that aired on KROQ-FM in California. A version of the track featuring Kimmel’s Snoop Dogg imitation, “Christmastime in the LBC,” has been uploaded to YouTube.
 
In the Christmas track, a singer mentioned a “fat n—- in a sleigh giving sh— away,” referring to Santa Claus. The song also referenced “n—– in the manger,” including associates of King Herod.
