  • Canada couple freed in terror entrapment case swiftly rearrested

    By Julie Gordon VANCOUVER (Reuters) - A Canadian judge freed a couple found guilty of planting homemade bombs at a crowded Canada Day holiday party in 2013, saying on Friday the "unsophisticated" pair were entrapped by police who themselves broke the law in their sting operation. The peace bond would make the couple subject to release conditions for up to twelve months, lawyer Mark Jette told Reuters, adding the couple had since been released on bail and would be challenging the order. Earlier on Friday, British Columbia Supreme Court Justice Catherine Bruce ruled the RCMP manipulated the "unsophisticated" couple into carrying out a plot, saying that they did not have the mental capacity to plan on their own.

  • Huge, once-hated fish now seen as weapon against Asian carp

    It's a toothy giant that can grow longer than a horse and heavier than a refrigerator, a fearsome-looking prehistoric fish that plied U.S. waters from the Gulf of Mexico to Illinois until it disappeared from many states a half-century ago. Persecuted by anglers and deprived of places to spawn, the alligator gar — with a head that resembles an alligator and two rows of needlelike teeth — survived primarily in southern states in the tributaries of Mississippi River and Gulf of Mexico after being declared extinct in several states farther north. To many, it was a freak, a "trash fish" that threatened sportfish, something to be exterminated.

  • Vancouver realtor probed for 'how-to' email on avoiding new property transfer tax

    The Real Estate Council of B.C. has told a Vancouver real estate agent to stop advising clients on how to avoid the proposed 15 per cent foreign buyers' tax announced earlier this week by the provincial government. The council is investigating Century 21 realtor Mike Stewart after he circulated an email to clients that describes how a foreign buyer of a pre-sale condo can skirt the new transfer tax, chiefly by selling their contract to buy the pre-sale unit to friends or family who are Canadian citizens or residents. "For those of you who do not have that option, we may be able to sell the pre-sale to a third party at a profit to you," the email goes on to say.
