Seeking signatures of support, 'pot pardon truck' rolls into Edmonton

Seeking signatures of support, 'pot pardon truck' rolls into Edmonton The "pot pardon truck" looks like a food truck, but it isn't selling anything. Instead, it's rolling across Canada with the goal of gathering support for the complete expungement of criminal records for those convicted of cannabis possession. Cannabis was legalized in October. Since then, the federal government announced plans to pardon Canadians convicted of simple possession before legalization. The normal fee of $631 for a pardon will be waived under the proposed bill. The five-10 year waiting period to apply for a pardon will also be waived. The free pardons are expected by summer, if the bill passes.

A man was arrested on a busy Edmonton street for nightlife Friday night after more than a dozen vehicles were lit on fire in front of witnesses sitting in area bars.

Police told Global News they were called to Whyte Avenue and Calgary Trail after a group of people conducted a citizen's arrest. The suspect was handed over to officers when they arrived.

Police confirmed 13 vehicles were set on fire but no injuries were reported. Police did not say whether they expect to lay charges.

Shocking video of the incident submitted to Global News shows a man pouring gas from a jerry can onto an SUV that had someone inside.

He was later seen walking across a busy Calgary Trail.

6 people arrested after series of alleged distraction-style jewelry thefts in Edmonton.
Six people are believed to have been involved in more than 20 alleged distraction-style thefts in Edmonton since March. "These thefts were undertaken by a well-organized crime group," EPS West Division Criminal Investigations Section Staff Sgt. Colin Leathem said. "We are hopeful that these arrests have permanently disrupted their operation in the Edmonton area." Police are warning the public, in particular seniors, to be aware of their surroundings when in parking lots and to be extra vigilant if approached by strangers who are trying to give away or sell something.
