Critics ask why no details on government plan for parks management

  Critics ask why no details on government plan for parks management EDMONTON — The Alberta government has yet to release details on how it will "optimize" the province's parks by getting other people to run them. It's been almost a year since the plan was revealed in the budget and Alberta Parks is to begin accepting reservations March 4 for this summer's camping season. Despite repeated requests from politicians, environmental groups and The Canadian Press, Alberta Environment won't say with whom it's signedIt's been almost a year since the plan was revealed in the budget and Alberta Parks is to begin accepting reservations March 4 for this summer's camping season.

He asserted in the six-tweet thread: 'Case closed! Let us all move forward to tackle the serious business of world issues!!' Biden said on Saturday that his administration would make an announcement on Saudi Arabia on Monday. MBS did accept responsibility for Khashoggi's assassination – and Riyadh eventually asserted that the U.S.-based journalist was killed in a 'rogue' extradition operation gone wrong. Five men were given the death penalty for the journalist's murder but had their sentences commuted to 20 years in prison after being forgiven by Khashoggi's family.

Nations In Action and the Institute for Good Governance are making the following demands on elected officials: Depose State Department officials starting with Rome staff including Stefan Serafini. Immediately strip Leonardo SpA of all contracts and seize assets. At that point, Johnson argues, while the fraud was already well underway, the hackers realized that "Trump was over Biden for a very high and unexpected number of votes" enough to make manipulation vain and not enough to make him lose.

Hallmark Channel Parent Crown Media Undergoes Layoffs As Part Of Restructuring

  Hallmark Channel Parent Crown Media Undergoes Layoffs As Part Of Restructuring Crown Media Family Networks had a round of staff cuts yesterday. “As part of a restructure to realign roles and responsibilities, some positions were eliminated,” the company said in a statement to Deadline. “This was done in an effort to decrease redundancies, optimize effectiveness, and create more support level roles.” The company would not comment on the number or size of layoffs involved. According to sources, about 20 employees were impacted in Media Operations, On-Air Promotion, Research and Administration. The list is said to include long-term Crown Media employees who have worked more than 20 years at the company.

He never told us he thought that electrons and stuff were consciouss? It’s proven by putting 2 slits in it, giving it an option. Go for it ask anyone with half knowledge or ask an Scientist? The evidence is there and putting 2 slits there proves he new and thought it was consciouss thinking… make an decision? More than likely is all a big set up to clean out the tunnels of the trafficked children underneath DC. They had to do something with them before who knows what happened. Tricky times even for the elite pedophiles and the child demand and supply chain.

It has now been proven that it was the radical Left and Antifa members who broke into the State Capitol on Wed. 6 Jan. They entered the fenced in area and Capitol Building with the help of DC police. CNN reporters were in on it as they filmed the riot while President Trump was giving his speech to millions of his peaceful supporters two miles away. During the raid the US military confiscated Pelosi and other Democrat laptops which later were found to have evidence proving that the Dems were coordinating the raid from their offices at the State Capitol.

Hoefman, also of Medicine Hat, is charged with the extortion of a man who was threatened on Oct. 10, 2017 to pay $1 million or watch as friends, family and strangers were murdered.

The next day, the body of James Satre was discovered in an alley for which Hoefman faces a first-degree murder charge.

The Crown's theory is that murder was an intimidation tactic to scare the extortion victim into giving up the money.

'We've been watching you'

"We've been watching you and [your wife] and everyone else close to you for weeks," said the first threatening letter, which the Crown had the alleged extortion victim read out in court Wednesday. The extortion victim's identity is protected by a publication ban.

"We are ready to kill any one of them, so my advice to you is do as you are told or my guys will go in for the kill. And that is one thing they love to do."

Major organized crime case in Ontario falls apart after allegations of ‘unlawful’ wiretap

  Major organized crime case in Ontario falls apart after allegations of ‘unlawful’ wiretap "He's glad that this chapter is over, obviously, and that these allegations are no longer pursued," a lawyer for one of the accused told Global News."The communications were between some of the accused... and people who were clearly lawyers," said lawyer Michael Lacy, who represents one of the accused, Angelo Figliomeni.

A post-mortem ruled he died from being poisoned, but the man known only as the 'Somerton Man ' was never identified. Who he was and his purpose for being in the area remain a mystery that those closest to the case hope will soon be solved, as officials allow the man 's body to be exhumed. One of Australia's most enduring and mysterious unsolved murders is one step closer to being solved 70 years later with approval given for the body of the 'Somerton Man ' (pictured) to be exhumed.

Most Americans have forgotten what it means to fight for freedom, and they take it for granted. They won’t for much longer! When they “lose” their freedoms under the Biden regime, they will beg to be saved… This is not the time to remain silent but rather a time to voice the truth about how Biden’s horrific policies are gutting this nation, endangering the privacy of little girls (with his trans bathrooms push), destroying 40,000+ jobs related to the Keystone pipeline, flooding America’s borders with illegal aliens and even demanding the release of illegals in.

The first letter arrived at the alleged extortion victim's business on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving Monday, 2017. It was taped to the front door with the words "personal and confidential" on the front.

The receptionist placed it on his desk and the man opened it when he arrived to work.

'Here is the game'

"Here is the game and if you play without cheating then you will win because you will have saved a lot of lives," the letter said.

"On the other hand, cheat and we promise that you, [your wife] and a lot of other innocent people close to you, or perhaps you do not even know them, will die."

The letter told the man to be smart, not brave.

"Perhaps you would like an example of what we are capable of doing should you even be thinking of choosing the wrong option," it said.

Listen to the radio for news of murder: letter

The letter instructed the man to put a red piece of paper on the door of his workplace all day on Day 1.

Alberta may follow B.C.'s lead on faster rollout of first COVID-19 dose

  Alberta may follow B.C.'s lead on faster rollout of first COVID-19 dose EDMONTON — Alberta’s health minister says the province is considering whether to follow British Columbia in extending the time between COVID-19 vaccine doses. Tyler Shandro says a committee of COVID-19 experts is analyzing emerging data and a decision is coming. The B.C. government announced Monday that it will extend the wait between first and second doses to four months to get more people vaccinated overall in a shorter time period. B.C. based its decision on data from the United Kingdom, Israel and Quebec that shows the first dose of vaccines is 90 per cent effective. “There’s fantastic evidence that’s coming out,” Shandro said Tuesday.

Business . Panetta's office did not immediately respond to an inquiry from Fox News. The congressman said in a Monday tweet that he is "calling on" Biden "to install checks [and] balances in our nuclear command-and-control structure."

He is also starting a “100 days masking challenge” urging all Americans to wear masks and state and local officials to implement public measures to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. Mr. Biden is also reinstating ties with the World Health Organization after the Trump administration chose to withdraw the nation’s membership and funding last year. He has ordered all of his appointees in the executive branch to sign an ethics pledge. Finally, Mr. Biden issued a freeze on all new regulations put in motion by his predecessor to give his administration time to evaluate which ones it wants to move forward.

"On Day 2 we will show you exactly what we can do," it promised.

"We could leave a small body part like a finger, or an ear or a tongue but we do not want to freak out your assistants, so just hearing that an individual was brutally murdered on the radio should be enough.

"Better get at it for we have no communication for any excuse you may have."

James Satre fatally stabbed

The man testified he immediately called police and alerted his staff and family.

He said he taped a piece of red paper to the door and set up security cameras outside his workplace which ultimately captured someone leaving a second letter taped to the front door of the business again that night.

In the morning, the man once again called police who then told him to get out of town.

On Oct. 11, 2017, one day after the man was told in the letter to listen to the radio for news of a murder, James Satre's body was found in a Medicine Hat laneway. He had died from a stab wound to the chest.

Satre's obituary described him as a Red Seal chef who was a "gentle soul" with a passion for the outdoors, photography and reading.

GPS tracker placed in money bag

In his opening statement to jurors, prosecutor Conor Doyle explained that after the first letter was delivered, police planned their response which included packing a duffel bag to look like it was stuffed with $1 million, the way the letter demanded, but with a GPS tracker inside.

Snipers and trail cameras monitored the bag's location and movement and captured images of a man picking up and travelling with the duffel.

Follow-up letter sent to news agency

There were further letters in the days that followed including one sent to a Medicine Hat news agency that claimed responsibility for the death and blamed the extortion victim and police for not following the exact demands.

Doyle told jurors they will hear evidence gathered following a search warrant executed on Hoefman's home where he lived with his wife. Police seized a laptop, USB memory sticks and a paper shredder.

On the electronics, police found copies of letters similar to the ones sent to the extortion victim, said Doyle.

Court of Queen's Bench Justice Dallas Miller is presiding over the seven week jury trial.

Doyle and Ramona Robbins are prosecuting the case with defence lawyers Ian McKay and Heather Ferg representing Hoefman.

Queen Elizabeth Enlists 'Bob the Builder' to Fix the British Monarchy in Colbert Cold Open (Video) .
You can just tell that Oprah Winfrey's CBS interview of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry has Buckingham Palace shook. On Monday, Stephen Colbert's cold open saw Queen Elizabeth II attempt to enlist the British "Bob the Builder" gang to "fix" the British monarchy. Good luck with that, chap. Gonna need some much, much different tools than what you've got in that belt. "I have a special project for you today," the superimposed Queen Elizabeth II says to Bob in the masterfully edited footage from the kids' stop motion series. "The British monarchy: can you fix it?" "Uhhh, fix what?" Bob asks. Also read: Oprah's Meghan-Harry Interview Was Just 1.
