Mounties will be barred from smoking pot almost a month prior to any shift
In a new policy reportedly set to be announced later this week, the RCMP will ban Mounties from using legal pot almost a month before any shift.
Despite the fact marijuana will be legal to consume as of Oct. 17, Global News has confirmed members of the RCMP will not be allowed to consume cannabis within 28 days of a shift, a move that will put the force at odds with the policies in place for most members of the military and several local police forces.
Doubling Down, Kanye West To Dine With President Trump At White House
Rapper Kanye West, who has said that he and President Trump both share “dragon energy,” will drop by the White House this week to have lunch with the president, the White House said Tuesday.
Presidential son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner will also meet with West when he visits, press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement.

The staggering hypocrisy of Hillary Clinton
It’s hard to work out what is most galling about Hillary’s latest act of haughty, self-righteous condemnation of people and politicians who think differently to her. There’s the historical illiteracy. In a line that her speechwriters knew would hit the headlines — and it did — Clinton said the Tories’ refusal to slam Orban suggests they have ‘come a long way from the party of Churchill or Thatcher’. Right. Because Churchill would never have sided with a political strongman from the East that he disliked and opposed in order to achieve a broader political goal, would he? Perhaps while she’s at Oxford today, Clinton could sign up for a booster course on modern British history.

Canada’s goals well below what’s needed to stop catastrophic climate change: UN
Canada would have to cut its emissions almost in half over the next 12 years to meet the stiffer targets dozens of international climate change experts say is required to prevent catastrophic results from global warming.
The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change says there will be irreversible changes and the entire loss of some ecosystems if the world doesn’t take immediate and intensive action to cut greenhouse gas emissions far more than is occurring now.
