5. Hamilton Ontario: “Ring leader” of Locke Street vandals gets jail time as 5 plead guilty
Defence lawyers argued accused were motived by social justice
A group of people who were part of a vandalism spree on Locke Street in March have pleaded guilty for their roles in the flurry of mischief.
Local anarchist and activist Cedar Hopperton pleaded guilty before the Ontario Court of Justice in Hamilton Thursday morning to one count of mischief over $5,000 and one count of counseling to commit mischief.
Following a joint submission by his lawyer and the Crown, Hopperton was sentenced to a year in custody, less four months for time served, which will be followed by a year of probation.
“See you all soon, take care of each other,” said the 31-year-old on the way out of the courtroom.
“Love you,” responded supporters.
Hopperton was described in court as the "ring leader" of a crowd of masked group of 15-40 people who pelted buildings and vehicles with eggs and rocks and had earlier in the day invited people to attend a “militant and confrontational march.”

6. RCMP crossed line while interrogating radicalized teen after 2014 terror attack, says Quebec Appeals Court
But court upholds conviction of teen on terror charges, saying it would not have changed trial's outcome.
An RCMP interrogation of a radicalized teenager, hours after the 2014 terror attack in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, was “abusive” and should not have been used against him at trial, Quebec's Court of Appeal said in a decision released Thursday.
But despite that finding, the appeal court rejected the Lachine teenager's bid to have his conviction on terrorism charges overturned. [...]
The teenager was 15 in 2014 when he was arrested for having robbed a convenience store with a knife and stole $870.
It was the latest in a string of incidents pointing to his radicalization, which also included consulting jihadist websites when he was 13 and trying to use his parent's credit card to buy airline tickets to Turkey.

10. EU confirms funding for migrants massed at Bosnia border, locals say crime rife
As the EU confirmed it was spending taxpayers’ cash on migrants seeking to break into the bloc, Bosnians have pleaded for the Balkans migration route to be shut down amidst increasing “militancy” from newcomers.
Authorities in border towns in Bosnia, which is outside the European Union, have been struggling to cope with increasingly bold and forceful attempts to push through police lines and onto EU soil since mid-October, when thousands of third world immigrants began camping near the border with EU member Croatia — reportedly following misinformation that Croatia was set to open its frontiers.
In the border town of Bihac, Mayor Suhret Fazlic said the 3,000 or so migrants currently living in the area nearby were presenting a major problem for the city with “militant behaviour” and committing hundreds of criminal offences.
