TORONTO - The Canadian government's designation
of an Egyptian man as a threat to national security is unreasonable, a
federal court judge has ruled.
The decision in favour of
Mahmoud Jaballah, could see the end of an ordeal that first saw
Canada brand him as a terrorist more than 16 years ago.
The huge leak of offshore financial records reveals Canadian tycoon Victor Dahdaleh, a 72-year-old Jordanian-born metals magnate, is indeed, as long suspected, the mysterious middleman known in US court documents as 'Consultant A' - described as having handed out tens of millions of dollars in inducements to officials at a Persian Gulf smelting company in exchange for supplier contracts that went to one of the world's biggest aluminum conglomerates.

OTTAWA - Mounties wearing tiny video cameras
must hit the record button when there is 'a high likelihood' they'll use
force against someone, says an interim RCMP policy on use of the
devices. In general,
officers have discretion as to when to turn on the body-worn cameras
that clip on a uniform, or may be embedded in glasses or a helmet.
But RCMP members should not record every public encounter or
conversation, according to the interim policy. And when 'tactically
feasible,' officers are supposed to inform citizens when they are being

OTTAWA - A federal watchdog is looking into
claims that Canada's spy agency had only one serious privacy violation
in 2015. The
CSIS reported just one privacy breach in 2015, and only after the
spy agency was urged to by an independent review body.

Documents recently tabled in Parliament revealed federal
departments and agencies logged 5,853 privacy and data breaches in 2015.
Taken together, the breaches involved 45,892 individual Canadians.
TORONTO - Quebec's Charbonneau Commission revealed the intertwined relationships are between organized crime, business and politics and it would be folly not to expect similar links in Ontario.

Ontario's Liberal government could have saved hydro customers $1.5B by
terminating an agreement with Samsung, but decided against it.

Ministry of Energy advised the government it could save hydro customers
$5.2B by terminating the agreement.
