EXCLUSIVE: McClintic’s brother says ‘she’s no more Indigenous than I am green from the planet Mars’

The brother of convicted child-killer Terri-Lynne McClintic says the only reason his sister is in a healing lodge is because she manipulated the corrections system.

“She is no more Indigenous than I am green from the planet Mars,” he said in an exclusive interview with Global News.

McClintic’s brother said his sister is trying to make her life easier while serving her sentence for the brutal murder of eight-year-old Tori Stafford in 2009, and that he believes she should be removed from Saskatchewan’s Okimaw Ohci Healing Lodge and sent to a narrow cell in a maximum security prison.

Sweden: Representative of Malmö mosque demands that it should be visible from all directions

The Mahmood Mosque feels that Malmö City doesn’t listen to them and therefore appeals the detailed plan for the immediate area. They protest that buildings around them will be too tall and thus obscure the mosque.

Islam’s Ahmadiyya Assembly says that when they bought the land and built the mosque, it was stated in the detailed plan that future surrounding buildings would not be taller than 5 meters. And they chose the location because the mosque can be seen at a distance.

However, in September, the Urban Planning Committee compiled the new detailed plan for expansion of the area, and it states that buildings can be up to 14 meters tall.

Privacy commissioner launches probe into StatsCan over collection of financial data

The announcement comes shortly after the head of Statistics Canada issued a public statement assuring Canadians that their personal financial data is safe after days of Conservative criticism over the agency’s move to collect the financial transaction data from 500,000 people.

Study: Oceans warming faster than anticipated, giving even less time to stave off worst impacts of climate change

The world’s oceans may be heating up faster than previously thought — meaning the planet could have even less time to avoid catastrophic global warming than predicted just weeks ago by the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

According to a study published Wednesday in the journal Nature, ocean temperatures have been warming 60% more than outlined by the IPCC.

Medical cannabis user finds prescription unaffordable now that recreational weed is legal

Shane Moore was prescribed opiates for a back injury years ago. He got hooked.

It took years to shake the habit and even longer to feel relief without painkillers.

“Sometimes I hit the floor it was so bad,” he said of his back pain, sitting in his Confederation neighbourhood apartment.

Moore discovered cannabis was effective as a pain reliever.
