OT­TAWA—NDP im­mi­gra­tion critic Jenny Kwan is ac­cus­ing the Canada Rev­enue Agency of “go­ing af­ter refugees” af­ter two Syr­ian refugee fam­i­lies in B.C. be­came the tar­get of au­dits of their Canada Child Ben­e­fit pay­ments.

The pri­vate group that spon­sored both fam­i­lies raised con­cern about the way Fire­fight­ers in Mar­seille work with a res­cue dog to lo­cate peo­ple who might be trapped in de­bris of one of two col­lapsed build­ings Mon­day. Of­fi­cials feared some might be hurt. the tax agency dealt with these refugees, which led to one fam­ily hav­ing its ben­e­fits halted and be­ing sent a bill for $27,000. Leona Et­man­ski of the refugee sup­port com­mit­tee at St. Philip’s Angli­can

church in Vic­to­ria, says the refugees were asked to prove their chil­dren were liv­ing in Canada; the doc­u­men­ta­tion they had to pro­duce was dif­fi­cult for them to gather. Et­man­ski says she be­lieves the CRA should change its poli­cies on how it deals with refugees. But she also won­ders why both of the fam­i­lies her group has spon­sored ended up with au­dits of their Canada Child Ben­e­fit pay­ments.

Kwan asks why the CRA is tar­get­ing refugees and how this squares with the gov­ern­ment’s stated plan to crack down on large-scale tax cheats. It’s not that hard to find the In­fowars ar­ti­cles that Jewish groups worry about. A quick search of the site pulls up an ar­ti­cle sug­gest­ing the U.S. gov­ern­ment per­pe­trated the re­cent at­tack on the Pitts­burgh syn­a­gogue as a false flag op­er­a­tion. (It’s the “lat­est move by the Deep State to sow civil un­rest and ef­fect [sic] the his­toric up­com­ing midterm elec­tion,” the site’s au­thors write.) There’s one call­ing Jewish phi­lan­thropist Ge­orge Soros a “Nazi col­lab­o­ra­tor.”

Jewish lead­ers in Bri­tain say the site is bi­ased against Jews. Now, some are call­ing on the U.K. In­de­pen­dence Party (UKIP) to cut ties with the web­site. FRED­ER­IC­TON — A Fred­er­ic­ton man ac­cused of mur­der­ing two po­lice of­fi­cers and two civil­ians in an Au­gust shoot­ing spree has told a judge that he wants a new lawyer. Matthew Ray­mond said he feels he has not been de­fended by his lawyer and wants a new one ap­pointed.

Diaz-Canel, who is in Asia on his first in­ter­na­tional tour since as­sum­ing of­fice in April, ar­rived in Py­ongyang with his wife on Sun­day. He was met at the air­port by Kim, who joined him on the ride into the city past flower-wav­ing and cheer­ing crowds. North Korea’s state me­dia re­ported the two stressed their shared so­cial­ist his­tory and vowed con­tin­ued sol­i­dar­ity.

CNN had re­jected the same ad, declar­ing it racist.

Fox pulled the ad Sun­day. Fox did not im­me­di­ately say how many times it aired on ei­ther Fox News Chan­nel or the Fox Busi­ness Net­work.
