Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale is assuring Canadians that police and security agencies are “being prudent and vigilant” in light of Wednesday’s attack outside the U.K. Parliament.

Two days after FBI director Comey shot down Trump’s allegation that Trump was being wiretapped by president Obama before the election, it appears that president Trump may have been on to something because moments ago, the House Intelligence Chairman, Devin Nunes, told reporters that the U.S. intelligence community incidentally collected information on members of President Trump’s transition team, possibly including Trump himself, and the information was “widely disseminated” in intelligence reports.
