Went “pop” in a taxi before being popped by police closing in on him.
In a dramatic take down with an explosion and gunfire, an Islamic State agent was taken down by police in the process of an attempted suicide bombing in the Ontario city of Strathroy today.
UPDATE: From CTV NEWS:
A suspected ISIS sympathizer believed to be the lone suspect in a suicide bomb plot on a major Canadian city was killed Wednesday during a dramatic police takedown in a southern Ontario town, CTV News has learned.
Aaron Driver, 23, was killed inside a home in Strathroy, Ont., a community about 225 kilometres west of Toronto. He was well known to Canadian intelligence and police officials for his support for the Islamist terrorist group.
Police believe Driver was acting alone in the alleged plot, and there is no threat to public safety. But officials were swarming the Strathroy house until late Wednesday night, concerned about what may have been inside.
The Rebel in an other update provides an article from The Star of an interview with Harun Abdurahman from 2015:
Harun Abdurahman is a Canadian who was raised as a Christian in a military family with a proud record of service in the Canadian Armed Forces. He converted to Islam at 17. What follows is an edited version of his answers during his interview with the Star. (Harun Abdurahman is an online alias.)
Another reason I started studying Islam is because it’s not just a religion as you can compare to Christianity or mainstream Judaism but it’s a full-encompassing way of life that includes a financial system, a system of law, as well as religious beliefs and practices.
Asuspect banned from associating with the Islamic State was dead after Canada’s national police force thwarted what an official said was a suicide bomb plot.
A senior police official said late on Wednesday the suspect allegedly planned to use a bomb to carry out a suicide bombing mission in a public area but was killed in a police operation.
The official identified the suspect as Aaron Driver.
Mr Driver, originally from Winnipeg, Manitoba, and in his mid-20s, was under a court order from earlier this year to not associate with any terrorist organisation, including the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil).
What doesn’t fit The Narrative the media scrubs from the record…..
“They said in the paper she was choked with chains two different times. That wasn’t what was said. She was choked twice, but once with a necklace. She was choked with their hands. Like it was just a bunch of little stories that kept adding up and I was like this is enough. Like, once or twice it happens, maybe its just rough play. But it’s happening a lot. And it hasn’t just been this week. There has been numerous things that have happened. Not just with my kids.”
Last week an article by the Chronicle Herald detailed multiple instances of Syrian refugees assaulting Canadian children. The article featured comments by a woman nicknamed “Missy” who explained how her daughter had been choked with a chain and her son had been visibly threatened on the soccer field.
The story was pulled soon after it was posted with members of the left-wing media decrying the story as “racist,” “Islamophobic,” “xenophobic” or simply just not true.
In place of the story, an apologetic message was left in its place saying the story needed more research and was “insensitive” to the refugees.
The Herald also didn’t like how its story found its way onto “right-wing” websites that are critical of mass Muslim migration.
And in a letter on the Halifax regional school board’s website, Superintendent Elwin LeRoux called the complaints by parents in the paper “unsubstantiated accusations” and insisted they were “not true.”
However, the Herald did admit that other parents had come forward with stories of their children being attacked.
In the aftermath of this story and the Herald’s self-censorship, no one in the Media Party bothered to do any research.
The Rebel, however, did.

H/T: TT Reader, Jim Sankton: ”Hey Tundra! Maybe you can give this some coverage.”
These Muslims, packing guns, turn a funeral into a shooting gallery.
The idiot RCMP, Cpl Sharon Franks, in regards to the shooting, can be quoted as saying..
……“They were there to mourn a friend, a family member,” Franks said. “This is one of those things that’s hard to understand.”
These Muslims and the graveyard are directly connected to “Muslims of Calgary”, a violent and extreme group of Muslims in Alberta who have a well established track record of advocating violence and hatred toward non-Muslims.
And in response to this shooting not a peep from the Premier of Alberta or the mayor of Calgary, Naheed Nenshi, himself a Muslim. Even the bloody Calgary chief of police hasn’t said a word.
That we tolerate Islam 101’ers in our countries is ”hard to understand”.
RCMP said four people sustained non-life-threatening injuries in a shooting Friday at the Muslim Cemetery outside Calgary, approximately one kilometre east of the community of Cochrane.
“All are expected to make a full recovery,” Cpl. Sharon Franks said at the Okotoks Detachment Friday evening.
Franks said RCMP were called to reports of a shooting at the cemetery at 3:35 p.m.
“When police arrived at the cemetery all the parties involved… had left the scene,” she said.
“At this point we do not believe that this was a random incident,” Franks said.
A witness, who did not wish to be identified, said at the end of the funeral, a skirmish broke out. She heard two or three gunshots and people started running.
RCMP said everyone involved in the shooting appear to have been at the funeral, although police are not sure about the relationship between the people at the ceremony.
“They were there to mourn a friend, a family member,” Franks said. “This is one of those things that’s hard to understand.”
No reason was given…..
Popular conservative talk show hosts, John Counsell, Nick Vandergragt, Mark Sutcliffe, and Ron Corbett all let go from Ottawa’s only broadcast conservative talk radio. No reason was given.
Lowell Green, the icon of the station left CFRA earlier this year and was replaced by Rob Snow, who many felt was farther to the political left. The video above is from a caller to John Counsell on his last night on air, Feb. 16 – 2016. According to the linked story above, all were notified of immediate termination at a meeting today at 10:45 AM Feb. 17th.
According to the Left, this of course means ”progress”.
TORONTO – Canada will accept between 35,000 and 50,000 Syrian refugees by the end of 2016, Immigration Minister John McCallum says.
McCallum huddled up with provincial ministers and community organizations in Toronto Thursday to talk about planning to settle refugees in the city. The Liberal government has promised to bring in 10,000 people by Dec. 31, and another 15,000 by the end of February.
Between the government sponsored 25,000 and another 10,000 privately sponsored refugees, Canada will be home to at least 35,000 Syrians by the end of 2016, McCallum said.
“I’m confident in the course of 2016, even now as we speak, there will be more privately sponsored refugees coming forward,” McCallum said, adding that those figures could go as high as 50,000.
Most of the koran is like that as well……
We are in this predicament because we have lost our sense of cultural superiority as well as having mainstreamed inherently violent Islam.

Are Muslims who live in Canada living in a state of war with their host country? Should they see other Canadians as the enemy?
The Ottawa Public Library (St. Laurent Branch) is currently holding books by Mohamed el-Ghazali, one of the most extreme of Islamcist writers who preaches violence and hate towards non-Muslims and Muslims who do not live according to his extremist view of Islam.
One of the books has the title “One Hundred Questions about Islam.” The book has several insights such as:
Of note, a search of books on Islam at the St. Laurent branch revealed more violent texts including others by el-Ghazali. There were no books there that expressed a historical view of Islam nor any books on the modernization of Islam.
It is not known if this book was purchased by the Ottawa Public Library or if it was donated by an individual or a group. An informal conversation with a staff member suggested that books that were donated were subjected to a specific process and were approved for use by staff.
Mohamed el-Ghazali is the author of more than 90 books. He became best known in the press for his public defense of the assassins of Dr. Farg Fouda. Dr Fouda was a secularist who spoke out against Islamacist organizations such as the Muslim Brotherhood and was killed because of this. El-Ghazali stated at trial that anyone who opposed the full imposition of Islamic law was an apostate and should be killed either by the government or by devout individuals.
Yes, for jihad terrorism…….
Wanted on international warrant for participation in terrorist activities.
Wanted for conspiracy, participation in activity of terrorist group and leaving Canada to participate in activity of a terrorist group.
Working in conjunction with Interpol.
Again, Mr. Fatah, “You can’t have it both ways.” I believe your aim has always been to construct a mythical, modernity-friendly Islam, albeit a non-existent Islam, as a counterpoise to a very violent and unfriendly veridical Islam, the Islam that exists in the world today, just as it has since the time of Mohammed. But time is running out for you, Mr. Fatah. Two American presidential candidates have recently remarked unfavourably in regards to Islam. Of course, these statements must surely have caused great consternation and horror in the news rooms of what has become a morally defunct and epicene Western media. And these candidates, to my knowledge, are not retracting their statements. Your advocacy, on behalf of an Islam that has never existed, that will never exist, that you insist does exist, will soon be exposed as nothing short of the same fanaticism synonymous with so many of your fellow religious. Only yours is the “moderate” version.
Or in a better world, scheduled to be hung the following day.
Two radical Islamists have been sentenced to life in prison in Canada on Wednesday. They had planned to derail a packed passenger train travelling between Toronto and New York.
Two men had plotted to cut a hole in a railway bridge to derail the Canadian Via Rail passenger trainbetween Toronto and New York, aiming to kill and injure dozens of people. Investigators in the case alleged during the trial that they had received guidance from members of al-Qaida in Iran ; Iranian government officials denied having anything to do with the plot.
Defendants Chiheb Esseghaier and Raed Jaser will now have to serve a minimum of 10 years before becoming eligible for parole on the life sentences handed to them earlier today.
During the trial, defendent Chiheb Esseghaier was alleged to have links to al-Qaida in Iran, while also working with a terror cell in New York
Tunisian national Chiheb Esseghaier was found guilty in March of all five charges against him, including conspiracy to participate in or contribute to terrorist activities. Raed Jaser, a Canadian resident of Palestinian descent, was found guilty of three of four charges while the jury remained deadlocked on a conspiracy charge, as the prosecution did not manage to establish a direct link to overseas extremists in his case. The two men, both in their 30s, were arrested in 2013.

Still believe that all cultures are equal?
A Winnipeg man who allegedly assaulted his wife in front of police and told an officer he could do what he wants with “his property” is now fighting a bail order banning him from having any contact with the woman.
“Even if her wish was to have contact with (the accused), the Crown would be strongly opposed to any variation of the bail,” Crown attorney Vuk Mitrovic told court Wednesday.
In the presence of police, the accused “was undeterred in committing an assault on his wife,” Mitrovic said. “The attitude he demonstrated … should cause the court grave concern about the safety and protection of the public.”
The accused, who is not being identified to protect the identity of the alleged victim, was arrested June 24 after police responded to a 911 call from his family’s Lorne Avenue apartment.
The man has filed a motion to remove a bail condition prohibiting him from living with his wife and nine children pending resolution of his charges.
“I have been away from my home and my family (for over a month),” the man told court through an interpreter. “This is a problem according to my faith to be away from my family.”
Hey Canada, someone in your neck of the woods is an enough of a pal of the tard to get sent a selfie with a gruesome trophy.
Salhi’s confession came after it emerged the married father-of-three sent a gruesome selfie photo of himself and the severed head to a WhatsApp number in Canada.
Published: 28 Jun 2015 12:04 GMT+02:00
Yassin Salhi, 35, “has also given details about the circumstances” surrounding the killing, according to investigation sources, who said he would be transferred to Paris for further questioning later Sunday.
Salhi’s confession came after it emerged the married father-of-three sent a gruesome selfie photo of himself and the severed head to a WhatsApp number in Canada.
Investigators have warned however that it could be a relay number and the intended recipient could be anywhere in the world.
The grisly killing came on the same day as two other attacks claimed by the Islamic State jihadist group, which left 38 people dead at a beach resort in Tunisia and 27 in a suicide bombing in Kuwait.
Now if it was a white driver, do you think that he would just get suspended?
A taxi driver caught on camera swearing and hurling racial slurs at a security guard has been taken off the job.
The video was filmed by Justin McKillican on Wednesday around 2:30 p.m.
He says he was walking through Rideau Centre when he noticed a security guard helping an elderly woman who seemed to be in pain and when he got out to Rideau Street another guard was awaiting an ambulance.
Just before the ambulance arrived, McKillican said that a Capital Taxi van pulled into the space that was being saved for the emergency vehicle.
The driver was told by security that an ambulance was on the way and that he needed to move. That’s when things got heated and when McKillican pulled out his phone to record the exchange.
What’s so difficult in spelling out exactly what ”Canadian couple” is in question.
VANCOUVER, British Columbia – A jury found a Canadian couple guilty Tuesday of plotting to set off pressure-cooker bombs outside British Columbia’s provincial legislature two years ago on Canada Day, when thousands of people were expected to be there.
The jury in Vancouver began deliberating on Sunday morning and returned their verdict late Tuesday against John Nuttall and Amanda Korody. They found the two recent converts to Islam guilty of conspiracy to commit murder and making or possessing an explosive device. The judge last month had entered a ruling of not guilty to another charge of knowingly facilitating a terrorist activity, citing unspecified legal reasons.
The couple were arrested in July 2013 after police accused them of attempting to target the July 1 Canada Day celebrations in Victoria. Three home-made pressure-cooker bombs were placed outside the legislature before crowds gathered, but undercover police officers had already ensured they were inert by using fake explosives.
This is their explanation: the withholding was for “security purposes”: “In order to maintain the integrity of the ongoing investigation, the RCMP was limited in the amount of information it was able to publicly release.”
That’s a lot of hooey. There is nothing relating to security in the withheld sections — only Islamic prayers. They cut them out so that the public wouldn’t be in danger of getting the idea that Zehaf-Bibeau’s attack had anything to do with Islam. For whatever reason, Canadian authorities, as well as those in the United States and Europe, are determined above all else — even security considerations — to keep their people ignorant and complacent regarding the jihad threat. This cannot, and will not, end well.
