Well, sort of. He apparently was/is a Ranger- a sort of local auxiliary officer who act as liasons with the Canadian military in remote areas- like the NWT.

Armed Man Who Rammed Justin Trudeau’s Home Is a QAnon Fan: Report

Corey Hurren, who rammed a pickup truck filled with guns through the gates of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s home, had made Instagram posts about QAnon and other far right conspiracies, according to Vice. Hurren, a Canadian Armed Forces Reserve, smashed into the gates at 6:40 a.m. Thursday causing his car to break down. He fled on foot with a rifle in his hand but was arrested after a standoff with police. He reportedly had a note on him that he wanted to deliver to Trudeau, who wasn’t at Rideau Hall at the time.

The most notable changes involving game play include the use of one sweeper during games, no sweeping the opposition's stone behind the tee-line and new markings on ice for non-throwing team members to be stationed.

The City of Winnipeg has lost the legal battle against the Manitoba Homebuilder's Association regarding Growth Fees. City now required to refund over $30m in fees to homebuilders in emerging areas collected since '17 and the interest collected in that time.

The feds fear Ghislaine Maxwell might try to kill herself behind bars—like her longtime confidante Jeffrey Epstein—so they’ve taken special measures, including giving her only paper clothes and taking away her bedsheets, the AP reported.

Maxwell is currently at the federal Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn after being charged for allegedly taking part “in the sexual exploitation and abuse of multiple minor girls by Jeffrey Epstein.”

Epstein, 66, killed himself last August in his cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan while behind bars on sex-trafficking charges. Attorney General William Barr has said the “perfect storm of screw-ups” resulted in his death. Maxwell has a roommate during her confinement and must always be with someone.
