Pop Singer Chris Brown Denied Entry To Canada Again

The Canadian government denied Chris Brown entry into the country just hours before a scheduled performance. Chris took to Twitter to announce to a dignified manner. He tweeted;
"Unfortunately I will not be able to perform in front of sold out crowds in Montreal & Toronto. The good people of the Canadian government wouldn't allow me entry. I'll be back this summer and will hopefully see all my Canadian fans!"
Chris was scheduled to perform in Montreal and Toronto. And fans had already bought tickets. Die hard Chris Brown fans are now asking the US govt to ban Justin Bieber - who is Canadian - from entry into the US. According to TMZ, Canadian law dictates a person could be "criminally inadmissible" if they have been convicted of a crime involving assault.

Meet Jihadi John - The World's most wanted man

First picture of the face of the younger, normal, happy looking schoolboy who has now turned into the reviled, disgusting ISIS executioner, Jihadi John, who has publicly beheaded many foreign nationals and now the face of ISIS. Originally born in Kuwait before moving to UK at 6, his name is Mohammed Emwazi. 

He embraced British life, playing football in the affluent streets of West London while supporting Manchester United. Neighbours recalled a polite, quietly spoken boy who was studious at his Church of England school, where he was the only Muslim pupil in his class. The son of a Kuwaiti minicab driver, young Emwazi arrived in Britain speaking only a few words of English, and appeared more interested in football than in Islam. It was only after he won a place studying computing at the University of Westminster that his behaviour began to change.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security says the Obama administration and Canada have agreed with Canada for financing a key piece of a planned $2.1 billion bridge connecting Detroit and Windsor, Ontario. The department said Wednesday, Feb. 18, 2015, the agreement involves funding for a toll plaza on the U.S. side of the international crossing. Michigan Sen. Debbie Stabenow released a statement saying the agreement "is a critical step forward" for the project, long stymied by opposition from owners of the nearby Ambassador Bridge who seek to add a span of their own across the Detroit River.

Canada says it is intensifying economic sanctions against Russian individuals and companies in response to the tense situation in eastern Ukraine.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper says the move is being made in co-ordination with Canada's partners in Europe and the United States in response to what he says is Russia's backing of rebel forces in eastern Ukraine.

"Canada's position remains clear: we recognize the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine and will never recognize the illegal Russian occupation of any part of the country," Harper said in a statement.

Whitney Houston Former Bodyguard's Account of Her Life Before Death

Whitney, Bobby, drugs & death..and why their daughter never stood a chance, by former bodyguard (who inspired the singer's hit movie), The Bodyguard, David Roberts (circled in the photo above), writes things about Whitney and Bobby that you've never read before. David, who worked for Whitney for 7 years said he wasn't surprised when he heard that Whitney had died, saying that he was more surprised by how long she'd lived.
It has been the painful and very public unravelling of an American Dream. Millions of fans around the world watched appalled as Whitney, the ultimate diva of her generation, descended into the chaotic ravages of drug abuse and then, eventually, death at 48.
And now, just three years later, her fate has been replicated in an equally shocking style. Today the singer’s 21-year-old daughter, Bobbi Kristina, herself a drug addict, lies in a coma, hovering close to death.

In an impassioned address to a sparsely populated House of Commons, Ottawa Vanier Liberal MP Mauril Belanger argued that the change was not just necessary, but overdue.

Congress set to pass bill approving Keystone

Dina Cappiello The Associated PressThe United States Congress approved a bill Wednesday to construct the privately funded Canadian Keystone XL oil pipeline project, setting up a confrontation with President Barack Obama, who has threatened to veto the measure.

The House voted 270-152 to send the bill to the president, endorsing changes made by the Senate that stated climate change was real and not a hoax, and oilsands should no longer be exempt from a tax used to cleanup oil spills. Only one Republican voted against the measure.

But neither chamber has enough support to overcome a veto, and supporters were already strategizing on how to secure the pipeline’s approval using other legislative means.

Frazier Moore The Associated PressJon Stewart’s fans were gobsmacked by the sad news he delivered on Tuesday’s edition of “The Daily Show”: He’s leaving his phoney anchor desk and ending his reign as phoney newsman, and the loss is to real news.

“This show doesn’t deserve an even slightly restless host and neither do you,” he told his audience. He said he might depart in July, September or maybe December. He didn’t say what he means to do next.

To appreciate the impact of his 16-year Comedy Central reign, and the loss his impending exit represents, the distraught viewer need only consider Monday’s broadcast.

It was then that Stewart turned his attention to what was the biggest story in the journalism biosphere that night: the scandal surrounding NBC News’ Brian Williams.

Wearing a woeful expression, he summed up everyone’s befuddlement with crystalline efficiency: “Bri! Why? Why, Bri? Why lie? Sigh.”

Wow! British Family Welcome Baby Girl After 200 Years Of Having Only Male Children

It was joy galore for the family of Lawrie when they welcomed a baby girl four months ago, after about 200 years of not having one. The last time they had a baby girl in their family was in 1809. 

“When little Myla Lawrie was brought home from hospital four months ago, a veritable sea of pink greeted her, with clouds of balloons filling the sitting room, along with cards, bunting and ribbons in every shade of girliness.

For this was a very special event in the Lawrie family. When Myla was born in October, she was the first girl to be born in her family since 1809. The last time a midwife announced ‘It’s a girl’, the Napoleonic war was still being fought, the motorcar was yet to be invented, and ‘mad’ King George III was on the English throne.

The Supreme Court of Canada shifted the goalposts Friday on one of the most fundamental of human laws.
In a charter precedent that will go down in the history books as Carter vs. Canada, the court unanimously struck down the ban on providing a doctor-assisted death to mentally competent but suffering and "irremediable" patients.
The emphatic, unanimous ruling prompted tears of joy and frustration on both sides of the debate, reverberated through provincial health ministries and doctor's offices across Canada, and left skittish federal parliamentarians groping for time to digest the implications.

Egypt Finally Freed Al Jazeera Journalist After Spending 400 Days in Jail

Peter GresteAl Jazeera journalist Peter Greste was released on Sunday and deported after 400 days in jail on charges of faked reporting and collaborating with the banned Muslim Brotherhood.

The veteran television reporter was driven to Cairo Airport in the afternoon and put on a flight for Cyprus, officials told dpa.

The Qatar-based network called on Egyptian authorities to free his colleagues; Baher Mohammed and Mohammed Fahmy as well, calling Greste’s release as good news, but not enough.

Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sissi ordered Greste’s deportation under a November decree allowing him to expel foreign defendants and convicts “in the supreme national interest”.

The imprisonment of the three journalists has been condemned by human rights and media freedom groups, with Amnesty International saying no concrete evidence in support of the charges had been presented in court.

The journalists along with the three students, thought to be Muslim Brotherhood activists were convicted in June of providing material support to the Brotherhood and “producing fabricated coverage of events in Egypt.

Mohammed received an additional three-year jail term for possessing a round of ammunition.

Maritime storm could dump 40 cm of snow in some areas

Nova Scotia's famous groundhog prognosticator Shubenacadie Sam is waiting to make his annual prediction Monday morning, but there's no shadow of a doubt that the Maritimes will be hit with another major storm.

CBC meteorologist Peter Coade said this storm is expected to be Nova Scotia's worst of the season so far.

"It will be moving into the Maritimes early Monday afternoon in southwestern Nova Scotia and southeast New Brunswick. Then, it will spread throughout the entire area by the evening hours," he said.

Western Nova Scotia will be hardest hit, Coade said, with between 20 and 30 centimetres of snow. The storm could track inland over Nova Scotia, which will temper snowfalls slightly.
