The sleepy, formerly peaceful, typically Eastern Canadian town of Fredricton is undergoing fundamental transformation in the past year.
Now the police are seemingly militarizing their equipment.

Fredericton police Chief Leanne Fitch says the new $346,000 light-armoured vehicle her force is asking city council to fund would be known internally as an "armoured rescue vehicle" and be a "significant improvement." Fitch made a pitch to city council recently for funding in the 2017 police budget to lease the vehicle. City council will vote Monday night on its budget for next year. If approved, the armoured vehicle would be leased over six years with an estimated annual lease payment of $57,777, or $346,662, said city spokesman Wayne Knorr.
2. Alternative for Germany, (AfD) MP, Björn Höcke, gave a speech in the past week, and this is a brief excerpt from it, on how he views Islam and its role in the West.
The Islamic insurgency in the southern Philippines is taking a turn for the worse as the Islamic State has its sights set on waging violent Jihad there…
The reported presence of foreign jihadists in Mindanao, particularly in Lanao and nearby provinces, is being validated by concerned government agencies, National Security Adviser Hermogenes Esperon Jr. said.
Esperon issued the statement in response to the series of intelligence information reaching The STAR, claiming that Indonesian and Malaysian jihadists, along with their Middle East counterparts, have entered Mindanao through the country’s southern backdoor.
The Philippines has a long and troubled history with Islamic jihad, and the current leader has not felt supported by the Obama administration, and has been looking elsewhere for new alliances such as China.
4. Are you a woman in the EU afraid of being raped? No fear. Now you can buy Safe Shorts. A locking set of underwear with an actual alarm built in.
But really there is no danger to women in Europe as this German woman who is pretending to be in a Berlin underpass explains to us all. They even added a little echo to her voice to make it look more convincing. But this saleslady of multiculturalism for FOCUS Online is clearly not that comfortable with areas where migrants go herself, or she would have filmed this on the location into which she Green-Screened herself.
French police on Monday arrested 11 people suspected of helping to arm the Tunisian who killed 86 people by driving his truck into a crowd in Nice, sources close to the investigation said.
Ten suspects, including one or more Albanians, were arrested in various parts of Nice and another was detained in the western city of Nantes, the sources said.
The arrests come five months after Tunisian extremist Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel drove a 19-tonne truck into a crowd on the Nice seafront, further traumatising a country reeling from a series of terrorist attacks.
