The couple celebrated their nuptials last month alongside 135 friends and family in GeorgiaBen Affleck shared a sweet moment with his mother during his wedding party with Jennifer Lopez last month.
Repeatedly asked about taking responsibility for Legislative Building security away from the neutral sergeant-at-arms and transferring it to a security force answerable to her ministry, Corrections, Policing and Public Safety Minister Christine Tell consistently dismissed any concerns over political interference.
Politicians dictating policing matters would be untenable, she consistently explained. It’s not what her Saskatchewan Party government does.
Actors who fell in love with their animal co-stars
Most people who don't like animals simply haven't gotten to know one. When an actor has to work with an animal on set, they inevitably become close, and it's almost unavoidable that they fall in love with their furry co-star (it helps that they're fully trained). Countless actors have formed strong bonds with the animals they work with and are absolutely heartbroken with they have to say goodbye. So much so, in fact, that some have tried to take their new friends home! Click through the gallery to see which actors became completely enamoured with their four legged co-stars.
Tuesday, Tell wrote to Saskatchewan Assistant RCMP Commissioner Rhonda Blackmore to tell her it would be “counterintuitive” for the
“As the federal government continues to plan for their confiscation program, it is important to make clear to you, the Commanding Officer of our provincial police service, that the Government of Saskatchewan does not support and will not authorize the use of provincially funded resources for any process that is connected to the federal government’s proposed ‘buy back’ of these firearms,” Tell wrote in her letter to Blackmore.
It should be noted that the United Conservative Party government in

Provinces do have the right to challenge federal government authority by legitimate means. And one supposes this approach — or better yet, through the courts — is more legitimate thandesigned to ignore or skirt federal laws.
But that still doesn’t justify politicians telling police how they should police.
Now, you might not support Ottawa’s “buyback” (somewhat different than Tell’s loaded word “confiscate”) that affects some 1,500 models and variants of so-called assault-style weapons.
You might rightly argue this won’t keep gangs in cities from getting handguns from the U.S. or that it’s unfair to law-abiding gun owners.
Why a national gun registry failed 30 years ago under Jean Chretien’s federal Liberal government had everything to do with people being made to feel like criminals over what they see as a property rights issue. Many of the same arguments are now being reapplied.
‘The Woman King’ takes North American box office throne
The Viola Davis-led action epic “ The Woman King ” easily conquered the North American box office in its first weekend in theaters, against a crowded market of new releases. The film, directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood, surpassed expectations and earned $19 million in ticket sales, according to estimates from Sony on Sunday. “The Woman King” was released by Sony and TriStar in 3,765 locations and carries a reported production budget of $50 million, which was co-financed by eOne. The film, about the Agojie, the all-female army of the Kingdom of Dahomey in West Africa in the 1800s, got glowing reviews after its debut at the Toronto Film Festival.
You might be annoyed by disturbingto sell its own gun policies. No politician should be doing this.
But let’s stop for a moment and think about the message being sent out and how it might be interpreted.
What happens the next time the RCMP or any other police officers encounter some less-than-stable individual that’s a threat to themselves or others, but are cognizant enough to feel empowered by a provincial government telling them the RCMP has no right to take their guns?
Haven’t recentthat maybe politicians need to start thinking about what happens when you lather up a mob for your political gain?
The worry goes well beyond the blatant ridiculousness of any provincial official writing to any federal officials and telling them how to do their jobs.
Politicians should specifically not be telling police how to do their jobs; it’s not the first time the Sask. Party government has been caught doing this.
The definitive Neil Diamond playlist
Trying to peg down the top 25 songs written and performed by the legendary Neil Diamond can be pretty daunting. However, we gave it a go. Here they are.
Beyond the suspicious motivations for replacing the— with another policing authority, there have been ample other examples of this Sask. Party government thinking it’s OK to be meddling in police work.
Most notably, there was the request by this government and its Provincial Capital Commission tofor park bylaw violations.
What now makes the handling of the teepee protest more bothersome is how it blatantly contradicts the.
Those protesters weren’t just breaking local bylaws in Ottawa. We are now talking about
But rather than condemn this, what we’ve often got from politicians is pure politicking.
By now, Tell and her Sask. Party government should know policing and politics don’t mix.
