Anyone hearing about these bomb threats coming via email?  One business I know of in Vancouver has received one (or two) and he had heard of others.

B.C.'s Appeal Court has upheld a ruling that gave a couple convicted of planting explosive devices on the grounds of the legislature their freedom in 2016.

In a unanimous decision released Wednesday morning, the Appeal Court sided with a B.C. Supreme Court judge who stayed proceedings in the terrorism trial of John Nuttall and Amanda Korody on the grounds that the police investigation was a "travesty of justice."

John Nuttall is an aweful person. An extremeophile attracted to violence of any kind. A friend of mine used to know him 15 or 20 years ago. Back then Nuttall was running with the skin-heads and neo-nazis. He pushed a young black man to the ground and kicked him, while yelling racists and homophobic slurs (the ones that start with an 'n' and and 'f,' respectively). He has been in and out of jail for violent crimes ever since then.

Once even the skinheads cast him out for being to crazy, he decided he give Jihad a try and this was the result.

That said, the investigation was a total sham. This guy is a POS and should be in jail, but the RCMP broke so many laws trying to put him there, the courts had no choice put to release him.

^Now that it has been revealed that one of the suspects entered Canada in 2017 as part of the Syrian refugee surge (that we allowed to enter without proper background screening) I suspect that the Government will try to manage the message from here on out.

it’s already appearing to be an odd case. it’s hard to imagine what part of the operation would need the involvement of a plane running hours of overnight surveillance from 4000 feet over a couple weeks.

The admission puts to an end a mystery that began to befog Kingstonians at the start of January, when they first heard a buzz in the sky that persisted for hours on end after nightfall. The sound returned on a regular basis over a few weeks and gained wide attention when residents started expressing their confusion and annoyance on social media.

Not terrorists but treated like some:

 

The Connors family didn’t plan to be on the unmarked road.

Originally from the United Kingdom, the two couples and their three young children were driving near the U.S.-Canada border on Oct. 3 during a visit to Vancouver when an animal ventured into the road, forcing them to make an unexpected detour. But before the family could get very far, flashing lights from a police car appeared in their rearview mirror. The officer that pulled them over was American — they had accidentally crossed the border.

 

https://www.washingt...tion-detention/

 

They spent the day in a cold, miserable cell with a mylar sheet and the next day were taken to a Tacoma detention centre. The following day the mother and baby were taken to a hotel and the next day the whole family was flown to Pennsylvania to stay at yet another terrible facility where they are at this hour. Only after the family was finally permitted to contact the UK embassy did sanitary conditions improve.

 

The whole saga is worth reading. Kafka-esque. Of course, we are only outraged when this happens to "good" people.

The more I think about it, the more I support Maxime Bernier's border "fence". Help us law-abiding citizens stay out of the whackhole arms of the American CBP and ICE. Let's make the Americans pay for it, too. Heck, the cost of housing/transporting this family to date would have paid for at least a few hundred metres, no?

it's paywalled but what "animal" was blocking them from staying on the canada side of the border?

Here's a non-paywall version of the story from the Philadelphia Inquirer. 

 

https://www.inquirer...y-20191014.html

 

This happens way too often. It was even on an episode of that Border Security show. That stupid road needs to be redesigned assuming they went down the same road that's fooled past drivers. 

 

Here's the jogger story from last year:

it still does not make much sense.  they swerved to avoid an animal (they don't know what type) and suddenly they were in the usa?  come on.

 

the beach at white rock i don't know i'm sure there are at least signs there.  and she was neither american or canadian and she had no id on her.

 

it sounds like both cases could have been better handled but for every "mistake" like this border guards probably catch 100 illegals trying a clandestine crossing.  eventually you just say to them all "tell it to the judge" and throw them in jail.

Their scenario sounds about as likely as getting a black eye by kneeling down to tie your shoe while a door suddenly swings open and smokes you in the eye.

 

Something's very fishy here. I'm quite familiar with 0 Avenue and there's no way you wouldn't know you're driving across the border if you're aware you're driving along the border. The road is dead straight. Turn south and you're in the US, and that fact is communicated along the entire stretch of that road.

Furthermore, if memory serves correct I don't think there are even any roads along that section of the border that allow you to just turn south, you need to go over a grassy median. So once you've done that you know something's up.
