Cruise ship gets arrested in Iqaluit and it's a rare occurrence, says official

Rare occurrence? Maybe up there, but when I was a cop, I was arresting cruise ships practically every day. Ok, I was never a cop, but if I had been...
 
How about  "If I lived in Iqaluit with its 24 hour dark winter days, I would drink.  Drink lots, drink constantly.  And yes, I would do pills.  Lots of them. I might take my snowmobile and drive it off a cliff, just for somethin' different to do."

Lots of controversy behind this one.  

As the cartoonist is Canadian, you have to wonder what Trump will next do to Canada.  Send tanks?

Quebec law requires all circumcised government workers to wear secular foreskin covers
The elastic silicon covers, nicknamed “p’tit-tuques,” are branded with proudly secular Quebec themes such as the fleur-de-lis, the cross in the National Assembly, or oppressing minorities.

Trump tactics echo Venezuela’s populist Maduro and put Canada at risk, says former diplomat


Both men leverage existing divisions within their countries, positioning themselves as leaders uniquely able to help one group gain victory over another, he said. Maduro has framed himself as a champion for poor, urban Venezuelans, he explained, while Trump has claimed the title of advocate for disenfranchised, working-class American over the interests of a corrupt, entrenched elite.

A family from Quebec drove home from Florida with a dead body in the backseat

A vacation to Florida ended tragically for the Drapeau family of Quebec, whose patriarch Fernand, 87, died on the drive home.

His wife and son, wary about the cost and hassle of going to an American hospital and getting Fernand’s body repatriated, decided to just keep driving to their Ormstown home, in Quebec’s Montérégie region.

It wasn’t until they got to the Canada-U.S. border at Hemmingford, Que., that the Drapeaus were stopped and searched. It’s unclear at what point in the road trip exactly the man had died. Authorities believe he had been dead for at least a day before the family reached the Canadian border.

A border official called it a “first.” (...)

Worse yet.  A big fan of the Israeli nuclear weapons backed affirmative action ethnic cleansing program.     

I often disagree with Conrad Black but on this one I agree with him.

'East of the Rockies': Reliving Japanese-Canadian internment
This depiction of a dark chapter in Canadian history is the subject of “East of the Rockies,” an interactive, augmented reality storytelling app launched on March 1.

 
For a short time in the early 1980s, I lived beside an older Japanese couple in the Slocan Valley in the West Kootenay district of British Columbia.  They had all their property stolen and were then interned at the New Denver detention facility.    I am not sure how to describe the mood:  stoic sadness and regret, perhaps?   

They had a young daughter just starting university.  She struck me as less burdened.  I grew up on Nazi occupation stories so I could relate.
