xx Subscribing/Donating

Top of the evening Mike or staff

I just tried subscribing via e-transfer and it failed on me via the alternate to PayPal option.

If you want to confirm who or where I can send it to, I will do so shortly. Been here to long not to pitch in.


P.s reason for the post is I see two different e transfer addresses and the alternate subscribe page failed so wanted to be sure that the addresses were up to date before I sent.

xx Driver who sped through parade barricade in Calgary has no extremist links

Police say driver who sped through parade barricade in Calgary has no extremist

Calgary police say national security partners are investigating, but they don't believe there are any links to extremist activity after a driver ignored police barricades and attempted to drive toward a military parade downtown on Saturday.

An officer fired shots in an attempt to stop the vehicle, and Alberta's police watchdog has been called in to investigate.

Sixth Avenue S.W. is closed between Fifth Street and Seventh Street S.W., and Sixth Street S.W. is closed between Fifth Avenue and Ninth Avenue S.W., as of 4:15 p.m. The closure was expected to remain in place for several hours.

At 2:50 p.m. a driver drove through police barricades in the 600 block of 8th Avenue S.W. toward members marching with the 41 Service Battalion Freedom of the City parade, police said.

Officers tried to block the car with a patrol vehicle, causing the driver to pull a U-turn and attempt to flee.

An officer then fired shots at the vehicle, which continued to 6th Avenue and Sixth Street S.W. where it collided with a bystander's vehicle before coming to a stop.

He started driving toward me, toward the intersection … that's when [officers] opened fire.

    - Greg Kucharski, witness.

The driver and the passenger of the vehicle were taken into custody.

The driver, a 22-year-old man, and the passenger, a 28-year-old woman, are in hospital in stable condition. EMS could not confirm if the injuries were caused by gunshots.

Police, pedestrians and the occupants of the bystander vehicle weren't injured, police said.

The officer who fired his gun was a 12-year member of the service.

Kucharski said he saw other pedestrians duck behind pillars as the shots rang out.

"There was broken windows from where the bullets hit the car. He kept driving … it is pretty crazy to see something like that."

xx Feds Cut Reimbursements for Military Health Care

October 08, 2019, 19:46:58 by Haggis
I haven't seen this posted elsewhere on the site.

The Liberal government quietly cut the reimbursements it pays out to civilian hospitals that provide services to CAF members putting them on the same schedule and the same level of service as out-of-province patients.

A man has been arrested in the death of a Canadian Armed Forces master corporal working in Florida.

Master Cpl. Martin Brayman died Monday in Panama City after a violent assault the night before, a spokesperson for the CAF confirmed to

“His next of kin have been notified and the CAF continues to support them during this difficult time,” they wrote in an email. “Our deepest sympathies are with his family and friends.”

The Bay County Sheriff’s Office was in communication with the CAF on Tuesday, when they said they had made an arrest. A suspect name has not been released.
