#AceBreakingNews says according to BBC World News Report: Worshippers at a Canada mosque have confronted and restrained a man who was allegedly wielding an axe and attacked them with bear spray during Saturday morning prayers, police say.

Mosque exterior
Police say they were called to the Dar Al-Tawheed Islamic Centre in Mississauga, Ontario early on Saturday morning

Before he could inflict harm on any worshippers, several congregants bravely were able to stop him in his tracks,” imam Ibrahim Hindy said in a statement, describing the moment the attacker entered the site.

One worshipper knocked the axe from the man’s hands, and held him down until police arrived, local media reports.

A 24-year-old man was arrested at the scene in the suburb of Mississauga, and he has since been charged.

Some congregants had minor injures from the bear spray, the mosque’s imam said.

One of the worshippers said the experience was “terrifying” and described hearing a scream before turning around to see a man holding an axe and using bear spray – similar to pepper spray – against three people.

“By the time he was spraying, the people in the first row realized something was going on and one of the young men turned around and knocked away the axe before he had a chance to use it,” Noorani Sairally told Canadian newspaper The Globe and Mail.

The young man then held the alleged assailant down until police arrived, the witness said.

“Our community will never be broken and we refuse to be intimated,” he added.

Police have named the man they arrested as Mohammad Moiz Omar, and charged him with six offences including assault with a weapon and administering a noxious substance with intent to endanger life or cause bodily harm.

Following initial uncertainty over a possible motive, investigators now say they believe the attack was a “hate-motivated incident.”

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was one of a number of high-profile Canadian public figures to condemn the attack, which he described as “incredibly disturbing” and applauded the courage of the worshippers at the mosque.

The attack on congregants at the Dar Al-Tawheed Islamic Centre is incredibly disturbing. I strongly condemn this violence – which has no place in Canada – and I’m keeping the community in my thoughts today. I also want to applaud the courage of those who were there this morning.— Justin Trudeau (@JustinTrudeau) March 19, 2022

Canada’s Muslim community has been targeted in a number of deadly attacks, including in 2017 when a shooting at a Quebec City mosquekilled six people and left another eight wounded.

And last year, four members of the same Muslim family were killed after a vehicle hit them in London, Ontario, which was described by police as a deliberate Islamophobic attack.

CANADA: Sanctions 10 Putin Allies Including Russia’s Leading TV Propagandists – ICIJ™

President Vladimir Putin congratulates Russian TV Channel One chief Konstantin Ernst during a state award ceremony.

#AceNewsDesk says according to ICIJ News Report: Vladimir Putin’s top image-maker Konstantin Ernst, who was the subject of a Pandora Papers exposé, was one of a number of prominent media figures included in the new sanctions: He later sought to retract his statements when ICIJ did not agree to publish his email in full: By – Mar.08, 2022:

In another Western response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced economic sanctions against 10 close allies of Russian President Vladimir Putin, including prominent figures in Russia’s media and information apparatus.

Among those targeted by the Canadian sanctions is Konstantin Ernst, considered Putin’s top image maker and the head of television broadcaster Channel One, as well as television personality Vladimir Solovyov and Margarita Simonyan, editor-in-chief of state television news network and the Russia Today news agency.

“These sanctions will increase pressure on Russia’s leadership, including on Putin’s inner circle,” Trudeau told reporters on Monday in London, where he met British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte.

Trudeau said the names of those sanctioned came from a list compiled by jailed opposition leader Alexei Navalny, and includes former and current government officials, oligarchs and supporters of the Russian regime.

Other newly sanctioned individuals include: Health Minister Mikhail Murashko,Agriculture Minister Dmitry Patrushev, the oligarch Oleg Deripaska and State Duma member Pavel Krasheninnikov, among others.

Last October, Ernst was the subject of an exposé by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, which revealed that the propaganda chief held a secret stake in a real estate privatization deal financed by a state-linked bank.

The ICIJ probe, part of the 2021 Pandora Papers investigation, showed that Ersnt was a secret partner in a deal to buy 39 valuable Soviet-era cinemas and surrounding property from the city of Moscow. The deal was financed by VTB Bank, one of the sanctioned banks, also known as Putin’s “piggy bank.” The properties were sold at the minimum price set by a Moscow government-run auction to layers of shell companies.

Pandora Papers documents show that Ernst was also the beneficiary of a $16.2 million loan – from a Cyprus bank partly owned by VTB – used to fund his stake in the deal. The files also show the bank instructed offshore lawyers to keep documents detailing Ernst’s connection to the loan out of government records in the British Virgin Islands, where the shell companies concealing the deal were incorporated.

Further, the Pandora Papers documented how Ernst was joined in the partnership by a Russian media figure who is linked to some of Putin’s closest and most powerful allies, including Ernst’s bosses at Channel One.

Ernst acquired his stake in the deal only months after his triumph producing the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics, a dazzling spectacle that drew plaudits from critics and was widely credited with boosting the Russian’s leaders then-flagging international standing.

By the end of 2019, Ernst’s stake in the cinema development deal was worth around $140 million, according to Cypriot corporate records.

Ernst has been head of Channel One, Russia’s leading TV network, for as long as Putin had been president, and has played a critical role in creating Putin’s image as the savior of the Russian state.

In an email exchange with ICIJ last fall Ernst denied having hidden his involvement in the real estate development or having done anything wrong. “This is how my parents raised me,” he wrote.

He said: “I’m not going to answer your questions, not because I’m afraid of anything, only because I’m more than sure you are not an independent investigation company but an organization commissioned by the US secret services. And that has nothing to do with the independent journalism.”

CANADA: #COVID19 Protests NOW Over Trade Between USA & Canada Carmakers

#AceNewsReport – Feb.13: President Joe Biden has asked Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to use federal powers to the end blockade of the Ambassador Bridge, North America’s busiest land border crossing. Since Monday, protesters in trucks, cars and vans have blocked traffic in both directions, choking the supply chain for Detroit’s carmakers.

#AceDailyNews says a tense standoff between Canadian police and protesters opposing #COVID19 restrictions was set to continue on Sunday, as a court order and threats of arrest have failed to end a blockade of a key Canada-U.S. border crossing: Reuters: February 13, 202211:24 AM GMTLast Updated a few seconds ago

Despite a court order to end to the occupation and a state of emergency imposed by the province of Ontario, home to the city of Windsor, police have failed to disperse the crowd and resume cross-border traffic.

Police moved in early on Saturday, pushing protesters back from the foot of the bridge, but more people streamed into the area in the afternoon and the operation appeared to have stalled. Late on Saturday, Windsor Police arrested a 27-year old man for a criminal offence in relation to the demonstration.

“I am very hopeful still that police can … try and get to these folks in a reasonable way and have them understand that it’s time to move on,” Windsor Mayor Drew Dilkens told CBC News. “We can no longer afford as a country to keep it closed.”

The bridge carries about $360 million a day in two-way cargoes – 25% of the value of all U.S.-Canada goods trade.

Concrete barricades have been set up in front of the police near the bridge to keep protesters from reclaiming any ground.

The “Freedom Convoy” protests, started in the national capital Ottawa by Canadian truckers opposing a vaccinate-or-quarantine mandate for cross-border drivers, entered its 17th day on Sunday. But it has now morphed into a rallying point against broader COVID-19 curbs, carbon tax and other issues, with people joining in cars, pick-up trucks farm vehicles.

Protests erupted across several cities in Canada on Saturday, with some 4,000 people in downtown Ottawa. Financial capital Toronto had some 1,000 demonstrators, though the police had shut key access roads to the central business district.

In the west, hundreds of protesters chocked intersections along Pacific Highway with vehicles leading to the Canada-U.S. border crossing in South Surrey, British Columbia. Several, camped out near the border crossing, vowed to stay “as long as is needed” until all COVID-19 restrictions are lifted.

Strangling bilateral trade, protests have spread to three border points, including the in Alberta and Manitoba.

Canadian police have said the protests have been partly funded by U.S. supporters, and Ontario froze funds donated via one U.S. platform GiveSendGo on Thursday.

Ford Motor Co (F.N), the second-largest U.S. automaker, General Motors Co (GM.N) and Toyota Motor Corp (7203.T) all have announced production cuts. Companies have diverted cargo to stem losses during the cuts.

The estimated loss so far from the blockades to the auto industry alone could be as high as $850 million, based on IHS Markit’s data, which puts the 2021 daily flow in vehicles and parts at $141.1 million day.

“This is the busiest border crossing, so it’s not just automotive,” Mayor Dilkens said. “We are talking about things that impacts the entire nation here. That’s why finding a resolution is so important.”

(CANADA) Canadian Human Rights Tribunal Report: Trudeau appeals against a court order to pay billions of dollars to compensate indigenous children who went through the child welfare system #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Nov.01: The case has been a source of tension between tribes and the government: The government has said it is not opposed to compensation, but that it had issues over the order’s jurisdiction and how the money was to be divided. Canada’s “Sixties Scoop” saw indigenous children taken from their families. Now survivors are mapping out their stories

#AceDailyNews says according to BBC Canada News Report: Trudeau Challenges compensation order for indigenous children: Last month, a top court upheld a 2016 ruling that the government underfunded First Nations services compared with those for non-indigenous children: It ordered C$40,000 ($31,350; £23,340) payouts to each child who was in the on-reserve welfare system after 2006.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau
Mr Trudeau has pledged to compensate victims

Ministers and officials said in a statement on Friday that they had filed a “protective appeal” as a deadline loomed, but would pause litigation until all parties meet before December. The statement added that they will seek to settle the matter outside of court.

“I despise the imagery, but we’re putting our swords down,” Minister of Crown-Indigenous Relations Marc Miller told reporters in a Friday evening news conference. 

Campaigners had called for the government of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau not to appeal against the ruling.

Cindy Blackstock from the First Nations Child and Family Caring Society told CBC News: “If there is no deal, we’re going to go to hearings on an expedited basis. We don’t want children to lose out on this time.”

In 2016, the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal ruled that the government had underfunded First Nations children’s services compared with those for non-indigenous children.

The government appealed against that ruling in 2019, but lost its challenge last month in the federal court. 

Mr Trudeau, who won re-election last month, came into office in 2015 promising to strengthen and restore ties with native communities.

Speaking from the Netherlands ahead of international summits in Rome and Glasgow, he told reporters: “We are committed to compensating indigenous people who were harmed as children in child and family services.”

(CANADA) Indigenous Tribe Report: Group said on Wednesday a search using ground-penetrating radar has found 182 human remains in unmarked graves at a site near a former Catholic Church-run residential school that housed Indigenous children taken from their families #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – July.03: The Lower Kootenay Band said in a news release that it began using the technology last year to search the site close to the former St Eugene’s Mission School, which was operated by the Catholic Church from 1912 until the early 1970s.

#AceDailyNews reports that a ‘Canadian Indigenous Group’ says human remains found at former Catholic Church-run residential school and the latest discovery of graves near Cranbrook, British Columbia follows reports of similar findings at two other such church-run schools, one of more than 600 unmarked graves and another of 215 bodies according to our recent reports as attacks on churches have been condemned and statues of Queen Victoria & Queen Elizabeth 11 have been pulled down and destroyed and has prompted calls for national celebrations to be called off.

Key points:

  • Two other similar discoveries were made at former church-run residential schools in Canada earlier this year
  • The Canadian government has acknowledged that physical and sexual abuse was rampant in these schools
  • Indigenous groups have sought an apology from the Pope, but he has refused

It said the search found the remains in unmarked graves, some about a metre deep.

It’s believed the remains are those of people from the bands of the Ktunaxa nation, which includes the Lower Kootenay Band, and neighbouring First Nation communities.

Chief Jason Louie of the Lower Kootenay Band called the discovery “deeply personal” since he had relatives attend the school.

“Let’s call this for what it is,” Chief Louie told CBC radio in an interview. “It’s a mass murder of Indigenous people.”

“The Nazis were held accountable for their war crimes. I see no difference in locating the priests and nuns and the brothers who are responsible for this mass murder to be held accountable for their part in this attempt of genocide of an Indigenous people,” he said.

From the 19th century until the 1970s, more than 150,000 Indigenous children were forced to attend state-funded Christian boarding schools in an effort to assimilate them into Canadian society.

Thousands of children died there of disease and other causes, with many never returned to their families.

Nearly three-quarters of the 130 residential schools were run by Roman Catholic missionary congregations, with others operated by the Presbyterian, Anglican and the United Church of Canada, which today is the largest Protestant denomination in the country.

The Canadian government has acknowledged that physical and sexual abuse was rampant in the schools, with students beaten for speaking their native languages.

On Tuesday, it was announced that a group of Indigenous leaders will visit the Vatican later this year to press for a papal apology for the Roman Catholic Church’s role in residential schools.

After the graves were found in Kamloops, the Pope expressed his pain over the discovery and pressed religious and political authorities to shed light on “this sad affair.”

But he didn’t offer the apology sought by First Nations and the Canadian government.

A papal apology was one of 94 recommendations from Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission, but the Canadian bishops’ conference said in 2018 that the Pope could not personally apologise for the residential schools.

Attacks on churches condemned

Since the discovery of unmarked graves at the sites of former residential schools, there have been several fires at churches across Canada.

There has also been some vandalism targeting churches and statues in cities.

On Wednesday, Alberta’s Premier condemned what he called “arson attacks at Christian churches” after a historic parish was destroyed in a fire.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and an Indigenous leader said arson and vandalism targeting churches was not the way to get justice following the discovery of the unmarked graves.

“The destruction of places of worship is unacceptable and it must stop,” Mr Trudeau said. “We must work together to right past wrongs.″

Assembly of First Nations chief Perry Bellegarde said burning churches was not the way to proceed.

“I can understand the frustration, the anger, the hurt and the pain, there’s no question,″ he said. “But to burn things down is not our way.″

Statues of Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth II torn down in Canada

4 hours agoWatch: Statue of Queen Victoria toppled in Winnipeg, Canada

A prominent statue of Queen Victoria has been torn down by protesters in Canada as anger grows over the deaths of indigenous children at residential schools.

The protesters cheered as the statue at the legislature in Manitoba’s capital Winnipeg was toppled on Thursday.

A smaller statue of Queen Elizabeth II was also upended nearby.

Local media say police used a stun gun to arrest a man at the scene but the protest was largely peaceful.

The toppling of the statues came on Canada Day, an annual celebration on 1 July that marks the country’s founding by British colonies in 1867.

(CANADA/USA) JUST IN: Scores of deaths in Vancouver area and large wildfires are likely linked to a gruelling heat wave, authorities said Tuesday, as the country recorded its highest-ever temperature amid scorching conditions that extended to the Pacific Northwest region of the United States #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – July.01: The Vancouver Police Department alone said it had responded to more than 65 sudden deaths since Friday, with the vast majority “related to the heat.”

#ClimateChange Hits with at at least 134 dead according to RCMP as record-breaking heat wave hits Canada on Friday with temperatures reaching as high as 49.5C on Tuesday and scorching heat has reached as far as the Pacific Northwest region of USA and shows no sign of abating as the video below says its all caused by a heatdome ….

The chief coroner for the province of British Columbia, which includes Vancouver, said that it had “experienced a significant increase in deaths reported where it is suspected that extreme heat has been contributory.”

The service said in a statement it recorded 233 deaths in the wider British Columbia area between Friday and Monday, compared with 130 on average.

The deaths came as Canada set a new all-time high temperature record for a third day in a row Tuesday, reaching 49.5 degrees Celsius in Lytton, British Columbia, about 250 kilometres east of Vancouver, the country’s weather service, Environment Canada, reported.Canada’s freaky heatwaveThe heatwave gripping Canada and the US heads into uncharted territory as temperatures reach 20 degrees above average.

“Vancouver has never experienced heat like this, and sadly dozens of people are dying because of it,” police sergeant Steve Addison said.

Climate change is causing record-setting temperatures to become more frequent.

Globally, the decade to 2019 was the hottest recorded, and the five hottest years have all occurred within the last five years.

The scorching heat stretching from the US state of Oregon to Canada’s Arctic territories has been blamed on a high-pressure ridge trapping warm air in the region.

Temperatures in the US Pacific Northwest cities of Portland, Oregon and Seattle, Washington reached levels not seen since record-keeping began in the 1940s.

The extreme heat, combined with intense drought, also created the perfect conditions for several fires to break out.

Evacuation orders were issued in British Columbia’s Thompson-Nicola region amid wildfires spanning 750 hectares.

Another wildfire at McKay Creek region spanned 3,700 hectares. 

The British Columbia Wildfire Service tweeted images and attributed the fire to the hot, dry weather.

Another blaze on the California-Oregon border burned some 600 hectares by Monday morning.

‘Hottest week ever’ 

“We are in the midst of the hottest week British Columbians have ever experienced, and there are consequences to that, disastrous consequences for families and for communities,” British Columbia Premier John Horgan told a news conference.

The heat wave has forced schools and COVID-19 vaccination centres to close in the Vancouver area, while officials set up temporary water fountains and misting stations on street corners.

Stores quickly sold out of portable air-conditioners and fans, so several people without cooling at home told AFP they hunkered down in their air-conditioned cars or underground parking garages at night.Cities across the western United States and Canada opened emergency cooling centres and outreach workers handed out bottles of water and hats.

In Oregon, organisers were forced to adjust the final day of the US Olympic track and field trials, moving afternoon events to the evening.

“Dubai would be cooler than what we’re seeing now,” David Phillips, a senior climatologist for Environment Canada, told AFP on Monday.

(CANADA) Leaders of indigenous groups have said on Thursday that more than 600-bodies in unmarked graves have been found at a residential school #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – June.26: Leaders of Indigenous groups in Canada said Thursday investgators have found more than 600 unmarked graves at the site of a former residential school for Indigenous children — a discovery that follows last month’s report of 215 bodies found at another school:

#AceDailyNews says this is the second report with 215-bodies being found at schools last month and now the latest of over 600 bodies found at the Marieval Indian Residential School operated for nearly 100 years according to the

Fox News Flash top headlines for June 24
CANADA SITE OF FORMER INDIGENOUS SCHOOL REVEALS MASS GRAVE WITH MORE THAN 200 CHILDREN BURIED

The bodies were discovered at the Marieval Indian Residential School, which operated from 1899 to 1997 where the Cowessess First Nation is now located, about 85 miles east of Regina, the capital of Saskatchewan.

A search with ground-penetrating radar resulted in 751 ‘’hits,” indicating that at least 600 bodies were buried in the area, said Chief Cadmus Delorme of the Cowessess. The radar operators have said their results could have a margin of error of 10%.

(Darryl Dyck/The Canadian Press via AP)

“We want to make sure when we tell our story that we’re not trying to make numbers sound bigger than they are,” Delorme said. “I like to say over 600, just to be assured.”

He said the search continues and the radar hits will be assessed by a technical team and the numbers will be verified in coming weeks.

Delorme said that the graves were marked at one time, but that the Roman Catholic Church that operated the school had removed the markers.

On Twitter, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said he was “terribly saddened” to learn of the latest discovery.

“My heart breaks for the Cowessess First Nation following the discovery of Indigenous children buried at the former Marieval Residential School,” he said, adding that ‘’we will tell the truth about these injustices.”

Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe said the entire province mourns the discovery of the unmarked graves.

Florence Sparvier, 80, said she attended the Marieval Indian Residential School.

“The nuns were very mean to us,” she said. “We had to learn how to be Roman Catholic. We couldn’t say our own little blessings.”

Nuns at the school were “condemning about our people” and the pain inflicted continues generations later, Sparvier said.

“We learned how to not like who we were,” she said. “That has gone on and it’s still going on.”

Last month the remains of 215 children, some as young as 3 years old, were found buried on the site of what was once Canada’s largest Indigenous residential school near Kamloops, British Columbia.

Following that discovery, Pope Francis expressed his pain over the discovery and pressed religious and political authorities to shed light on “this sad affair.” But he didn’t offer the apology sought by First Nations and by the Canadian government.

“An apology is one stage in the way of a healing journey,” Delorme said.

“This was a crime against humanity, an assault on First Nations,” said Chief Bobby Cameron of the Federation of Sovereign Indigenous First Nations in Saskatchewan. He said he expects more graves will be found on residential school grounds across Canada.

“We will not stop until we find all the bodies,” he said.

From the 19th century until the 1970s, more than 150,000 Indigenous children were forced to attend state-funded Christian schools, the majority of them run by Roman Catholic missionary congregations, in a campaign to assimilate them into Canadian society.

The Canadian government has admitted that physical and sexual abuse was rampant in the schools, with students beaten for speaking their native languages.

(CANADA) JUST IN: The remains of 215 children, some as young as three years old, have been found buried on the site of what was once the largest Indigenous residential school — one of the institutions that held children forcibly taken from families across the nation #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – May.31: More bodies may be found because there were more areas to search on the school grounds, Ms Casimir said: Earlier she called the discovery an “unthinkable loss that was spoken about but never documented at the Kamloops Indian Residential School”

CANADA: Chief Rosanne Casimir of the Tk’emlups te Secwépemc First Nation said ground-penetrating radar was used to confirm the find that hundreds of children’s remains discovered at what was Canada’s largest Indigenous school

A report more than five years ago by a Truth and Reconciliation Commission detailed harsh mistreatment inflicted on Indigenous children at the institutions.

It said at least 3,200 children had died amid abuse and neglect, and there were reports of at least 51 deaths at the Kamloops school alone between 1915 and 1963.

“This really resurfaces the issue of residential schools and the wounds from this legacy of genocide towards Indigenous people,” Terry Teegee, Assembly of First Nations regional chief for British Columbia, said.

British Columbia Premier John Horgan said he was “horrified and heartbroken” to learn of the discovery, calling it a tragedy of “unimaginable proportions” that highlighted the violence of the residential school system.

The Kamloops school operated between 1890 and 1969, when the Canadian government took over operations from the Catholic Church and operated it as a day school until it closed in 1978.

Ms Casimir said it was believed the deaths were undocumented but a local museum archivist was working with the Royal British Columbia Museum to see if any records of the deaths could be found as Canada acknowledges ‘colonial genocide’As more members of the Commonwealth, including Britain, delve into its bloody past, how are other settler-colonial states dealing with renewed efforts to challenge their histories?

“Given the size of the school, with up to 500 students registered and attending at any one time, we understand that this confirmed loss affects First Nations communities across British Columbia and beyond,” Ms Casimir said.

‘Extremely painful’

Ms Casimir said officials were informing community members who had children who attended the school.

The First Nations Health Authority called the discovery of the children’s remains “extremely painful” and said in a website posting that it would: “have a significant impact on the Tk’emlúps community and in the communities served by this residential school.”

The authority’s CEO, Richard Jock, said the discovery illustrated “the damaging and lasting impacts that the residential school system continues to have on First Nations people, their families and communities”.

Nicole Schabus, a law professor at Thompson Rivers University, said each of her first-year law students at the Kamloops university spent at least one day at the former residential school speaking with survivors about the conditions they endured.

She said she did not hear survivors talk about an unmarked grave area, “but they all talk about the kids who didn’t make it”.
