On Saturday night, outside an Edmonton Eskimos football game — and it happened to be military appreciation night — there was a policeman working traffic control behind a barrier.
A man revved his car and crashed through, deliberate hitting the policeman. Then the driver jumped out, stabbed the officer, then fled.
Police later found an ISIS flag in his car.
The footage of the Edmonton attack was released by the police. I can’t imagine anything more newsworthy, but on Sunday the CBC announced that they would not be showing it on TV, for policy reasons.
In their headline, they put “acts of terrorism” in quotes.
A former co-worker says Sharif played Arabic broadcasts, and talked about his support for well-known ISIS leaders. So the co-worker reported Sharif to Edmonton police, who passed him onto the RCMP.
So why was Sharif granted refugee status, and allowed to roam at will?
That city’s police force tweeted:
.@edmontonpolice urge the public not to make broad assumptions in regards to religion, race, or nationality in light of #Edmonton attack

Five people wounded — including a fellow officer — and this cop thinks the problem is Edmontonians upset on Twitter.
Justin Trudeau and Rachel Notley rolled out their predictable responses — “diversity is our strength.”
But there is no diversity in these terrorist attacks.
This is all part of conditioning you to accept this as the new normal.
TONIGHT'S GUESTS: Veteran journalist Lorne Gunter, and Professor Salim Mansur, will join me to talk about this terrorist attack, and any possible effect it will have on Justin Trudeau's open borders refugee policy.
