Saskatoon police responded to a report of an armed robbery that turned out to be fake but led to an arrest of a wanted man.

Shortly after 5:30 p.m. CT on Friday, an unknown person calling from a blocked telephone number reported an armed robbery at a restaurant in the 2400-block of 22nd Street West.

Police officials said the caller indicated he was in the “back of the store” and that there was a man with a shotgun in the kitchen area.

    As the first officers arrived on scene, they observed a man running from the area that matched the description given by the caller.

    During a foot pursuit, the man ran out onto the street and into the side of a car travelling on 22nd Street. Despite denting the car, police said he got up and continued running before being arrested at gunpoint a short distance away.

    Investigators spoke with staff at all restaurants on the block but found no one who knew anything about the alleged robbery. No weapon was found by police.

    However, it was discovered that the 17-year-old boy did have an outstanding warrant for his arrest for breaching a court order. He was checked over by MD Ambulance paramedics and taken to the police detention centre.

    Investigators are still trying to figure out who made the false report.

Montreal police Chief Philippe Pichet called an emergency meeting with senior officers Saturday morning, following calls for an administrative inquiry by Quebec’s Public Security Minister Martin Coiteux on Friday.

Pichet took to 桑拿会所 explaining the meeting was to take stock of the current situation and outline the next steps in the inquiry.

An investigation into the force was launched earlier this week after allegations of corruption, relating to the fabrication of evidence, were brought to light.

Knights at Attack – 7:30 p.m. – Harry Lumley Community Centre – Owen Sound, ON

  • A happy Family Day for the London Knights

  • Knights playoff tickets set to go on sale Feb. 25

    London and Owen Sound are in the thick of the hunt for the top spots in the Western Conference as the teams are separated by just four points, both have 39 wins and 11 games remaining.

    The Knights are coming off a 4-1 victory over the Windsor Spitfires which was supposed to mark the return of Tyler Parsons to the London net.  Minutes before the puck dropped, Parsons fell ill and was replaced by Tyler Johnson who went out and made 36 saves, 19 of them in the third period, to help London capture the win.

    The Knights have now reeled off three straight victories and thanks to an Erie loss in Guelph, sit four points back of the Otters for first place overall.

    Owen Sound owns the most remarkable run by any team during the 2016-17 season.  From December 5 to February 17 they lost just two games, both to London.  Their record over that span was 22-1-0- but they still sat in fourth place in the West.

    After beating the Knights 6-1 on February 17, the Attack dropped a 3-2 shootout loss to Oshawa on home ice and then a 5-3 decision in Mississauga on Family Day.  Owen Sound bounced back and beat the Kitchener Rangers 5-0, getting 21 saves from goaltender Michael McNiven, as he posted his sixth shutout of the season. (He is tied for the league lead with Michael DiPietro of Windsor).

    The season series so far

    It has been a true pot luck.  There has been a little bit of everything.  Heavy on shootouts and light on dull moments.

    The first two games, the teams played went all the way through 65 minutes without a winner. The Attack won both by scores of 2-1 and 3-2.

    The third meeting became one of the most memorable that the clubs have ever played.

    It happened in Owen Sound on a Saturday afternoon in late January.  The flu had rocked its way through the Knights’ dressing room, and coupled with injuries, London was missing eight regulars from their lineup.

    The Knights were coming off a loss less than 24 hours earlier and fell behind 5-1 early in the second period.  There was every reason to pack it in and wait for the final buzzer.  Instead, London head coach Dale Hunter made a goaltending change.  Jordan Kooy came into the net for the final 32 minutes as the Knights erased the deficit and pushed the game to yet another shootout on the back of a Mitchell Stephens hat trick.  Stephens had a chance to win the game in the shootout and made no mistake as London left Owen Sound with a 7-6 win.

    Since that day the teams have traded lopsided victories. London blanked the Attack 4-0 and then two weeks later, Owen Sound won 6-1.

    Add them up and the Attack have the edge in the season series by one win.

    The match up

    The Knights are coming off a big win over the Spitfires that saw them sacrifice to block shots and bare down to bury their chances.  They will have to be wary of any kind of letdown heading into the Harry Lumley Bayshore Arena.

    London entered the game against Windsor trying to fend off a team that was within three points of them in the standings.  The Attack are just four points back.

    As much as teams will say they aren’t concerned who they have to play in the first round of the playoffs, staying out of the 4-5 matchup is a good idea.  That will mean finishing in first or second place in the Midwest Division.

    Owen Sound has preached consistency all season and found it in early December.  Their first real sustained hiccup since then came last week when they went back-to-back games without picking up a win.

    They will be out to prove to themselves that they are still in a groove as they hit the final 10 games on their schedule.

    One More Story

    Some people like surprises.  Johnson seems to be one of them.

    He says he found out that he would replace Parsons in goal three or four minutes before the London Knights were introduced before their game against Windsor.

    “I had left my blocker and my helmet in the bench (where the back-up goalie sits),” Johnson recalled.  “I skated out with a hat and my glove on as they called Parsons’ name.  It was kind of interesting.  I really didn’t have a lot of time to prepare, which can be good because you can’t overthink it.”

    Johnson played outstanding in the Knight net and London got a very important 4-1 win.

The New York Times is fighting back against accusations of “fake news” and dishonesty with a new TV advertisement.

It’s the first time the NYT has issued a TV spot in seven years, and it was released the week U.S. President Donald Trump barred the paper, along with a couple of other media organizations from a press briefing.

The 30-second ad includes audio from voices in the vein of news clips, talking about certain “truths,” from “the truth is our nation is more divided than ever” to “the truth is the media is dishonest.”

The clip, also posted on the Times‘ official YouTube page, has more than 1.5 million views since it premiered Thursday.

New York Times executive David Rubin reportedly said the ad is targeting the “national dialogue going on right now about facts and the truth.”

“Specifically, the research found that some people do not realize all that goes into having reporters out in the field, in hard-to-reach places, covering complex topics,” the paper said in a release.

The going rate for a 30-second spot during the Oscars can reach as high as US$2.5 million.

The Kuwaiti government could pay up to $60,000 to President Donald Trump‘s hotel in Washington for a party on Saturday that will be an early test of Trump‘s promise to turn over profits from such events to the U.S. Treasury.

ChangSha Night Net

The Kuwait Embassy is hosting an event to mark their National Day. Similar National Day celebrations at the Trump International Hotel for a crowd of several hundred can run from $40,000 to $60,000, according to cost estimates from the hotel seen by Reuters. The hotel declined to comment on the figures.

One of Trump‘s lawyers, Sheri Dillon, pledged at a Jan. 11 press conference to donate any Trump Hotel profits from foreign governments to the U.S. Treasury.

The White House and Alan Garten, the general counsel for the Trump Organization, did not return calls for comment on whether any profits from foreign government payments to the hotel have been donated. Dillon’s firm declined to comment.

Kuwaiti Ambassador Salem al-Sabah told Reuters he was paying the Trump Hotel an amount similar to what he had paid the Four Seasons hotel to host a previous National Day event. He said he expected the event to draw 500 or 600 people, but declined to disclose specific cost details.

The Four Seasons, which declined to comment, also charges prices in the $40,000 to $60,000 range for such events, according to cost estimates seen by Reuters.

A watchdog group led by former ethics lawyers for the Obama and George W. Bush administrations sued Trump in federal court in January, accusing him of violating the Constitution by allowing foreign government payments to businesses he owns.

WATCH: Trump Hotel opening in Washington, DC upstaged by protesters

Some ethics lawyers say even if Trump turns over all of the profits from the Kuwait National Day party, he would still be in violation of the U.S. Constitution, which prohibits government officials from accepting “any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.”

They say all of the income from the event, not just profits, would need to be donated to the U.S. Treasury to avoid contravening the constitutional ban.

Trump resigned in February as an officer of Trump Old Post Office LLC, the company that operates the hotel, but Richard Painter, Bush’s chief ethics lawyer, said theresignation made no difference as long as Trump retained an interest in it.

The ethics experts say Trump is still technically a recipient of payments to his hotels because he still has an ownership interest in them.

Dillon, Trump‘s lawyer, argued at the Jan. 11 press conference that payments to Trump‘s hotels do not violate the Constitution because “paying for a hotel room is not a gift or a present and it has nothing to do with an office.”

She also said that a separate law banning federal employees from engaging in matters affecting their financial interests does not apply to the president. The head of the U.S. Office of Government Ethics agreed in public remarks in January but said it was “consistent policy of the executive branch” for the president to nevertheless avoid financial conflicts of interest.

The office declined to comment when asked by Reuters whether Trump would be contravening the Constitution if he did not turn over all hotel income from foreign governments.

Four Democratic U.S. lawmakers asked the Government Accountability Office on Feb. 16 to assess whether Trump had made any payments to the Treasury resulting from profits at his hotels. GAO spokesman Chuck Young said the request was still being reviewed and the agency had not yet decided what to do about it.

When the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee was asked on Feb. 23 whether it would be tracking payments from foreign governments to Trump Hotels, and from the hotels to the U.S. Treasury, a spokeswoman for the committee declined to comment.

Mary Lou Murphy dedicated her life to helping others.

“The passion for people is what Mary Lou had. Mary Lou wanted to love and help everyone,” Andrew Grimeau said of Murphy, who worked as a unit clerk at Fraser Health rehab centre near Abbotsford Regional Hospital.

Loved ones said Murphy’s fatal mistake was trusting Fraser Health to take care of one of their own.

“She put her whole life into her job for Fraser Health,” Grimeau said. “For what? [For] Fraser Health to fail her.”

The 56-year-old went to Abbotsford Regional Hospital on Jan. 30 sweating profusely and in considerable pain.

After a five-hour wait she was given a shot of morphine and sent home.

“She had been treated in the community for muscular spasm with the appropriate medications,” Fraser Health Medicine Vice President Dr. Roy Morton said. “That was what the discharge diagnosis was from the emergency room.”

Grimeau says he visited her the next day at home and knew it was something much worse.

Murphy died sometime that night.

“All they’re doing in that hospital is diagnosing off of symptoms without research, without looking into what’s actually going on,” Grimeau said.

The three-old died during a second trip to Abbotsford Regional Hospital after being told to treat a fever at home with Tylenol.

A doctor’s report shows the child might have died of cardiac arrest stemming from pneumonia and septic shock.

The two deaths occurred one week apart.

“What we’re hoping is that these were isolated incidents that happened to be closely linked in time only. And that’s why we do a review,” Morton said.

Grimeau is calling for an independent review, saying he doesn’t have faith in the health authority to properly diagnose itself.

“I don’t think Fraser Health should be investigating,” he said.

The first thing we have to say is that it was pretty good reality TV.

A female cyclist, somewhere in England, is harassed by some obnoxious guys in a van.

She chases them down, finds the van parked a few blocks away …

It’s exciting to watch, and morally satisfying in a jungle-justice kind of way. And, as the motorcycle rider who’s been filming the whole thing from his helmet cam says, they arguably had it coming. (Well, he was less even-handed.)

However, it reminds us of this recent warning that making high-quality faked or staged video is going to become easier and easier and time goes on. Much of the fake news in circulation is of wretched quality and easy to spot if you’re even somewhat alert, and little of it involves any kind of video, but we shouldn’t count on that being true forever.

WASHINGTON — In President Donald Trump‘s estimation, the U.S. border isn’t merely porous, it’s “wide open.” Darkness and danger are everywhere, even Sweden. American infrastructure isn’t just in need of improvement but it’s in “total disrepair and decay.” The health law is not only flawed, but it’s an “absolute and total catastrophe.”

ChangSha Night Net

His apocalyptic view of everything he intends to fix leaves no nuance, but that’s where reality often resides. For example, Trump himself actually likes parts of former President Barack Obama’s health overhaul, such as the extended coverage for older children. And the U.S. remains an economic powerhouse able to transport goods in a stressed system of roads, bridges and ports that are not in total decay.

But the president is one to overreach for superlatives, whether describing the state of things as he found them or what he plans to do about them — or claims to have done already.

Some statements from the past week:

WATCH: Trump tells CPAC crowd that those harmed by Obamacare repeal ‘aren’t you’

TRUMP: “Obamacare covers very few people.”

THE FACTS: That’s only true if you consider more than 20 million people to be “very few.” That’s how many are covered by the two major components of the law: expanded Medicaid and subsidized private health insurance.

The Medicaid expansion, adopted by 31 states and the District of Columbia, covers about 11 million low-income people, according to the Congressional Budget Office. The other, more visible, component is HealthCare.gov. The federal website and state-run online insurance markets have signed up 12.2 million people for this year, according to an Associated Press count this month, based on federal and state reports.

Altogether, since Obama’s law passed in 2010, the number of uninsured people has dropped by about 20 million and the uninsured rate has declined below 9 percent, a historic low.

WATCH: Trump says he ‘took a lot of heat on Sweden’

TRUMP, repeating a week-old assertion that Sweden is an example of violence and extremism due to immigration: “Take a look at what happened in Sweden. I love Sweden, great country, great people, I love Sweden. But they understand. The people over there understand I’m right.”

THE FACTS: Trump was ridiculed in Sweden after he warned at a rally in Florida that terrorism was growing in Europe and something terrible had happened in Sweden the previous night. But there had been no extraordinary trouble that night in Sweden, a country welcoming to immigrants.

Two days later, though, a riot broke out after police arrested a drug crime suspect. Cars were set on fire and shops looted, but no one was injured. Attacks in the country related to extremism remain rare. The biggest surprise for many Swedes was that a police officer found it necessary to fire his gun.

READ MORE: Trump to award Mexico border wall contracts within 2 months 

TRUMP: The U.S. is providing security to other nations “while leaving our own border wide open. Anybody can come in. But don’t worry, we’re getting a wall. … We’re getting bad people out of this country.”

THE FACTS: His wide-open border claim is bogus. The number of arrests of illegal border crossers — the best measure of how many people are trying to cross illegally — remains at a 40-year low. The U.S. government under Presidents George W. Bush and Obama roughly doubled the ranks of the Border Patrol in the past decade or so.

In addition, the number of people expelled from the country since Trump took office Jan. 20 has not been disclosed. No available data support his claim, made Thursday, that immigrants in the country illegally are being expelled at a rate “nobody has ever seen before.” Deportations were brisk when Obama was president.

Altogether in January, 16,643 people were deported, a drop from December (20,395) but a number that is similar to monthly deportations in early 2015 and 2016.

This month, Homeland Security officials have said 680 people were arrested in a weeklong effort to find and arrest criminal immigrants living in the United States illegally. Three-quarters of those people had been convicted of crimes, Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly said. The remaining 25 percent were not.

The government has not provided information about who was arrested in that roundup, so it’s impossible to determine how many gang members or drug lords were in that group. It is also unclear how many of those “bad people” have actually been deported.

That roundup was largely planned before Trump took office and was alternately described by the Trump administration as a routine enforcement effort and a signal of his pledge to take a harder line on illegal immigration. During the Obama administration, similar operations were carried out that yielded thousands of arrests.

READ MORE :Several arrested as Standing Rock activists defy deadlines for Dakota Access pipeline protest

TRUMP: “We have authorized the construction, one day, of the Keystone and Dakota Access pipelines. And issued a new rule — this took place while I was getting ready to sign. I said who makes the pipes for the pipeline? Well, sir, it comes from all over the world, isn’t that wonderful? I said nope, comes from the United States, or we’re not building it. American steel. If they want a pipeline in the United States, they’re going to use pipe that’s made in the United States.”

THE FACTS: It’s not that straightforward. Trump’s executive order leaves lots of wiggle room on how much U.S. steel is actually used. The order states new, expanded or repaired pipelines in the U.S. must use U.S. steel “to the maximum extent possible” and allowed by law. That’s not an all-USA mandate.

What’s judged possible in the Keystone XL project remains to be seen. Pipes are already purchased. Contrary to his statement, Trump has not approved the project. Rather, he revived it by asking TransCanada to resubmit its application.

TransCanada did so in late January while saying it needs time to review how any buy-American plan would affect the company. It has said the majority of steel would be from North America, but that includes Canada and Mexico.

Trump’s Jan. 24 order on U.S. steel has little effect on the Dakota Access project because it is nearly complete.

TRUMP on arrests of people in the country illegally: “It’s a military operation because what has been allowed to come into our country, when you see gang violence that you’ve read about like never before and all of the things, much of that is people who are here illegally. And they’re rough and they’re tough, but they’re not tough like our people. So we’re getting them out.”

THE FACTS: He was wrong in calling immigration enforcement a military operation.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement, responsible for finding and deporting immigrants in the country illegally, is a civilian law enforcement agency. Military personnel were not responsible for recent raids that resulted in the arrests of 680 people. Planning for that roundup had been underway during the previous and was in step with large, periodic raids when Obama was president.

Kelly contradicted Trump on the nature of plans to step up border enforcement: “There will be no use of military forces in immigration,” Kelly said. “There will be no — repeat, no — mass deportations.”

TRUMP again claimed credit for a $700 million savings in the military’s contract with Lockheed for the F-35 fighter jet. Speaking to the defense contractor’s CEO Marillyn Hewson, he said: “Over $700 million. Do you think Hillary would have cost you $700 million? I assume you wanted her to win” — referring to Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

THE FACTS: Cost savings for the F-35 began before Trump’s inauguration and predate his complaints about the price tag.

The head of the Air Force program announced significant price reductions Dec. 19 — after Trump had tweeted about the cost but weeks before Trump met about the issue on Jan. 13 with Hewson.

“There is absolutely no evidence whatsoever of additional F-35 cost savings as a result of President Trump’s intervention,” said Richard Aboulafia, an analyst with the aerospace consulting firm Teal Group. He said Trump appears to be taking credit for prior-year budget decisions and for work already done by managers at the Pentagon who took action before the presidential election to reduce costs.
