Sopuck Supports Supreme Court Ruling

A local Member of Parliament is applauding a major Supreme Court decision that came down yesterday.
 
Dauphin-Swan River-Marquette MP Robert Sopuck says the decision by the courts to destroy all of the data from the Long Gun Registry Program, despite a challenge by the province of Quebec, is an outcome he's very pleased with.
 
Sopuck says this is a move that benefits all hunters, anglers and firearms owners.
 
Winnipeg Teens Charged After Stealing Dogs
 
Two teenagers are facing charges after an
ambulance-style vehicle with 10 dogs inside was stolen from south
Winnipeg in January.

The bedbug-sniffing dogs were in their handler's vehicle when it
was taken from a parking lot in the 2900 block of Pembina Highway.

On the morning of Jan. 19, police responded to a call near
Parkville Drive where several dogs were reported running loose in a
backyard.

Police recovered eight dogs and with the public's help,
eventually located and returned all ten dogs to the owner.

The stolen vehicle was found later that same afternoon.

A 15-year-old boy faces a charge of possession of property
obtained by crime, and a 14-year-old girl faces charges of motor
vehicle theft and animal abandonment.
 
Feds To Make Adjustments To Terror Bill
 
The Harper government will amend Bill C-51 to curb and clarify
anti-terrorism powers in the legislation.

Sources familiar with the planned changes say they'll make clear
that new information-sharing provisions would not target protesters
who act outside the letter of the law.

Another change would limit the public safety minister's powers to
order an air carrier to prevent someone from committing a terrorist
act.

In addition, a new clause would make it clear Canadian Security
Intelligence Service officers do not have powers to arrest people.
 
Germanwings Pilot Hid Illness
 
Searches of the belongings of the Germanwings co-pilot who flew
an airliner into the French Alps on Tuesday have turned up evidence
of an illness he hid from his employers.

Prosecutors say the evidence includes a torn-up doctor's note
that would have kept Andreas Lubitz from flying on Tuesday.

Lubitz's exact illness hasn't been disclosed because of privacy
laws.

The co-pilot is accused of deliberately bringing the passenger
jet down, killing all 150 people aboard.
 
Alberta Man Gets 22 Months For Animal Cruelty
 
The Alberta man who abused, starved and killed a dog and cat has
been sentenced to 22 months in jail.

Nineteen-year-old Nicolino Camardi is also banned for life from
owning animals.

He has been in custody since he was arrested last May and is
being given 16 months of credit for time served.

The Calgary Humane Society says it's one of the worst cases of
animal abuse it's ever seen.

With credit for time served, Camardi will be in jail for six more
months and then on probation for three years.
 
Amanda Knox Saga Ends
 
The long legal saga in Italian courts for American Amanda Knox is
finally over.

Italy's highest court overturned the murder conviction against
Knox and her ex-boyfriend.

Knox was awaiting word of the ruling at her home in Seattle.

They had long maintained their innocence in the 2007 death of
British student Meredith Kercher, who was found dead in the
apartment they shared.
