Umar Zameer has been charged with first-degree murder for the death of Const. Jeffrey Northrup.

The 55-year-old officer died on July 2 after being struck by a vehicle as he was responding to a report of a robbery in a parking lot at Toronto City Hall.

Justice Jill Copeland granted Zameer bail in September but the reasons for her decision and evidence presented in court are covered by a standard publication ban, which the defence had requested.

Possible Huawei ban has telecoms asking Liberals about taxpayer compensation for new equipment

  Possible Huawei ban has telecoms asking Liberals about taxpayer compensation for new equipment Both Bell and Telus have approached the federal government over the possibility of being compensated by taxpayers, should they have to remove Huawei equipment from their networks, sources have told National Post. The two telecom companies could find themselves forced to replace the equipment if the Liberals end up banning the Chinese telecom equipment-maker from Canada’s 5G networks. The Liberal government has been mulling a ban on Huawei for three years over security concerns. With uncertainty over government plans, Canadian wireless providers have been building their 5G networks using equipment from other vendors.

His death brought Philadelphia' s 2021 death toll to 506 as of Monday, breaking the city' s all time record of 500 deaths in 1990. 'For our City to have reached such a tragic milestone it carries a weight that is almost impossible to truly comprehend,' said Commissioner Danielle Outlaw. The soaring homicide rate has led to tensions between the cops and local District Attorney Larry Krasner as officers accuse him of allowing crime to sky rocket by failing to prosecute gun crime. 'Each and every homicide carries with it a profound sense of loss,' said Police Commissioner Danielle Outlaw in a Sunday press release.

An NYPD transit cop charged with murder of his eight-year-old son has quit the force so that he can keep a portion of his pension. Thomas' cause of death was determined to be hypothermia. According to police, cameras and microphones that had been set up in Mike Valva' s home captured audio of him and Angela taunting Thomas as he froze to death . The audio files allegedly recorded the couple discussing the fact that Thomas was suffering from hypothermia, had been washed with cold water, couldn't walk and was 'face-planting' on the concrete.

Zameer's lawyer says comments made about the case by police and politicians, including Premier Doug Ford, have jeopardized his client's fair trial rights.

Nader Hasan says the publication ban should now be altered to allow certain portions of the judge's decision to be made public.

"What we're seeking is an order that in essence acts as a corrective to ensure the improper, misleading narrative doesn't interfere down the road with Mr. Zameer's fair trial rights," Hasan said at a court hearing on Thursday.

The defence has taken issue with what Toronto's police chief has said about the case, as well as comments by the premier and other politicians when Zameer was granted bail.

Toronto Police Chief James Ramer called Northrup's death an "intentional and deliberate act" at a news conference the day the officer died. He also said Northrup and his partner were dressed in plainclothes with badges around their necks as they responded to a report of a robbery.

Lock in: Dozens stuck in England's highest pub after storm

  Lock in: Dozens stuck in England's highest pub after storm Dwayne Johnson is celebrating after his movie 'Red Notice' "shattered all records" in just under two weeks.

He struck a more ominous tone when addressing the OSCE summit, reiterating that Moscow will not accept NATO membership for Ukraine or the stationing of NATO missiles there that could threaten it. 'The alliance' s military infrastructure is drawing closer to Russia' s borders. Interfax news agency, quoting Russia' s foreign ministry, said Lavrov told Blinken Moscow would respond if Ukraine got drawn into any U. S . 'geopolitical games'. Ukraine claimed Russia has amassed more than 90,000 troops near their long shared border, while Moscow accused Kyiv of pursuing its own military build-up.

The changes require 'reasonable grounds' for the premier to declare a pandemic and subsequent lockdown. Under the older version of the bill there didn't even need to be a single case of the disease in Victoria for the powers to be implemented. The government will also be compelled to publish their public health advice before enforcing stay-at-home orders within seven days - down from two weeks. Changes to the Bill also restrict the government of the day from making public health orders which differentiate between groups of people. +13. Copy link to paste in your message.

On Sept. 22, not long after Zameer was granted bail, Ford tweeted it was "beyond comprehension the person responsible for this heinous crime is now out on bail," Hasan noted.

That tweet was removed and replaced with a version that said it was "beyond comprehension" that the "the person charged for this heinous crime is now out on bail."

Hasan said the comments "essentially" declared Zameer guilty.

"If these politicians had kept their mouths shut after the bail hearing, we would not be asking for this remedy," Hasan told the court.

The judge said the comments on Zameer's release on bail from politicians including Ford and Toronto's mayor "did not help."

The Crown is opposing the defence's effort to partially lift the publication ban.

"The release of your honour's judgment could be more problematic for the accused, there could be members of the public who disagree with your judgment, there could be backlash," said Crown attorney Karen Simone.

She added that the Crown would have requested a publication ban if the defence hadn't done so.

The Crown also said the fact Copeland released Zameer on bail should speak to the court's thinking about releasing him back into the community.

Copeland took issue with that.

"It seems to speak to some of the public figures who commented on the decision without reading the decision, which they could have before making comments," Copeland said.

The judge said she hopes to have her decision by mid-January.

"Obviously this is a complex issue," she said.

Taxpayers should not have to 'subsidize' rich telecoms that chose Huawei, Conservatives say .
The Conservatives are urging the Liberal government not to spend public money to compensate Canada’s large telecom companies for choosing to use Huawei equipment if it goes ahead with a Huawei 5G ban. “We ask that your government categorically reject requests for compensation from Canada’s large telecommunications companies,” Conservative Public Safety critic Raquel Dancho said in a letter sent Friday to Public Safety Minister Marco Mendocino and Innovation Minister François-Philippe Champagne.
