'It's a joke': After 4 years, the Liberals haven't released their plan for the Arctic

'It's a joke': After 4 years, the Liberals haven't released their plan for the Arctic After four years in power, the Liberal government still hasn't delivered on a promise of a detailed plan for developing Canada's North in a time of climate change and economic and military threats from circumpolar powers. "There is so much work that needs to be done," Iqaluit Mayor Madeleine Redfern told CBC News. "For decades, we have been falling behind our Arctic neighbours." Almost three years ago, the Liberals committed to developing an Arctic Policy Framework. The document, intended to replace past strategies designed by the previous Conservative government, was supposed to be released this summer.

Newly released transcripts provide insight into the final moments of Saudi dissident and Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi before he was killed by Saudi agents inside the kingdom's consulate in Istanbul, Turkey.

The authenticity of the transcripts, which were published Tuesday in the Turkish media for the first time, were confirmed to ABC News by Turkish authorities.

The transcripts reveal gruesome details from the murder that has cast a shadow over Saudi relations with the United States.

Hasan Minhaj Presses Trudeau About Pipelines, Saudi Arabia On ‘Patriot Act’

Hasan Minhaj Presses Trudeau About Pipelines, Saudi Arabia On ‘Patriot Act’ Comedian Hasan Minaj is known for sharp current affairs commentary, and he didn’t hold back when interviewing Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in the latest episode of his show “Patriot Act.” The host starts out pretty tame, commenting on Trudeau’s conventionally attractive looks and then making him play a game to decide if he was looking at a photo of a world leader or one of Minhaj’s friends’ dads.

Khashoggi is then told to text his son before he is drugged and has a bag placed over his head, as Jamal Khashoggi 's killers described him as 'an animal to be sacrificed' in secret recordings taken In the transcript Mutreb talks about stuffing Khashoggi 's body into a bag, but Al-Tubaigy says he is too

The reported transcribed conversations show the 15-member team of Saudi officials discussing what to do with Khashoggi's body before he arrived at the consulate, seeking paperwork for his upcoming marriage to his fiancée Hatice Cengiz. It's unclear how Turkey was able to record the events in the Saudi consulate as they unfolded.

Saudi Arabia has said that the team was rogue, misinterpreting an old edict to convince Saudi dissidents to come home and killing Khashoggi by accident. Those 15 individuals have been on trial in the kingdom, but the proceedings have been closed to the public.

"Is it possible to put the body in a bag?" asked Maher Abdulaziz Mutreb, a senior member of the team, 12 minutes before Khashoggi arrived on Oct. 2.

Bruce Arthur: Canadian men will never win short-handed in basketball’s league of nations

Bruce Arthur: Canadian men will never win short-handed in basketball’s league of nations If you weren’t cheering for Canada, the basketball World Cup is full of familiar-looking joy. There was Jonas Valanciunas roaring away for Lithuania for a 13th straight summer; there was a grey-haired Luis Scola putting his 39-year-old heart into a 23 and 10 for Argentina. Brazil won because of its old stars, Leandro Barbosa and Anderson Varejao, and wide-eyed child Bruno Caboclo, battling Greece’s Giannis Antetokounmpo. Turkey nearly beat the mid-market U.S. team behind Ersan Ilyasova and Cedi Osman. They could have been legends. And Canada’s men’s team tried. The guys who went halfway around the world tried. The people who represented Canada did their best.

The final words of journalist Jamal Khashoggi were “I can’t breathe,” according to a translated transcript of an audio A source familiar with the recording revealed the new details of the transcript to CNN over the weekend. According to the source, the sounds of Khashoggi struggling against the

Dr. Salah Muhammed Tubaigy, who served as forensic chief at the Saudi General Security Department, responded, "No. Too heavy, very tall too."

"I know how to cut very well," Tubaigy added. "I have never worked on a warm body though, but I'll also manage that easily. I normally put on my earphones and listen to music when I cut cadavers. In the meantime, I sip on my coffee and smoke. After I dismember it, you will wrap the parts into plastic bags, put them in suitcases and take them out."

According to Turkish officials, the team did that, removing Khashoggi's body in pieces in five suitcases. His remains have never been found.

In another portion of the transcript, after Khashoggi arrived, he was told to send his son a text message. Mutreb told him to "write something like 'I'm in Istanbul. Don't worry if you cannot reach me.'"

Doing the math on when to break a mortgage contract

Doing the math on when to break a mortgage contract Despite early predictions that mortgage interest rates were going to increase, mortgage interest rates have slid downward since last fall and winter. And although the Bank of Canada just announced they are holding the interest rate, mortgage rates could fall again in the not-too-distant future amidst trade war tensions, and the need to boost the Canadian economy. So, stay tuned. Lower rates are good for current home buyers, but if you’re like my fiancé and I, having bought in the dead of winter last year, you paid a much higher mortgage rate than what’s currently being offered.

Jamal Khashoggi apparently said: ‘I have asthma You’ll suffocate me.’ According to the transcript , Maher Abdulaziz Mutreb, a member of the Saudi hit squad, tells Khashoggi that Sabah also published Khashoggi ’s last words before he was apparently drugged and lost consciousness.

Khashoggi responded, "How can such a thing take place at a consulate? I'm not writing anything."

"Write it, Mr. Jamal. Hurry up. Help us so we can help you, because in the end we will take you back to Saudi Arabia and if you don't help us you know what will happen eventually," Mutreb fired back.

"There is a towel here. Will you have me drugged?" Khashoggi asked.

Tubaigy then stepped in and said, "We will put you to sleep."

The team then put a plastic bag over his head and suffocated him, with scuffling and struggling heard and a few commands given, such as, "Keep pushing" and "push it well."

Khashoggi's last words were, "I have asthma. Do not do it, you will suffocate me," according to the transcripts.

Shortly afterward, the sound of a bone saw is heard.

A United Nations special investigator determined in a report in June that Khashoggi's murder was perpetrated at the highest levels of the Saudi Arabian power structure and required further investigation of senior Saudi officials, including Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

Antonio Brown: Patriots WR becoming the NFL's worst nightmare

Antonio Brown: Patriots WR becoming the NFL's worst nightmare Antonio Brown has been accused of rape and sexual assault in a federal lawsuit, the latest and most serious controversy surrounding the receiver.

Saudi Arabia blasted the report as based on "many unfounded accusations" and questioned "the impartiality and lack of objectivity of the report" and its author, U.N. Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions Agnès Callamard.

"The kingdom will never accept any attempt to harm its sovereignty and that it categorically rejects any attempt to derail this issue away from the kingdom's justice system or any attempt to influence it in any way," according to Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Adel Al Jubeir.

President Donald Trump was equally dismissive of the investigation, saying he did not raise the issue with the crown prince in a meeting at the G-20 and telling NBC News that the murder had "been heavily investigated. ... By everybody."

The Trump administration has said it continues to collect evidence on the murder, but has largely accepted the Saudi defense that it was a rogue operation carried out by a 15-member team -- all of whom were placed under U.S. sanctions last November.

"We continue to urge the Saudi government to ascertain all the facts and hold those responsible for the murder accountable. We are awaiting conclusion of the criminal trial in Riyadh," a State Department spokesperson told ABC News on Tuesday. "If additional facts come to light, we will consider further measures."

Members of Congress -- in both parties -- have challenged Trump on his efforts to dismiss Saudi Arabia's role in Khashoggi's death in an effort to keep business as usual.
