Part One

Terrorism arrests
The RCMP announce charges against three Ottawa men, in what is being called law enforcement's first strike against ISIS recruitment inside Canada.

Terrorism oversight
The government's new anti-terrorism legislation worries Senator Colin Kenny -- who'll explain why he's asking for Parliamentary oversight of our security systems.

Schabas quits
William Schabas promised he would be impartial as the head of a UN probe into possible Israeli war crimes during last summer's war in Gaza. Israel didn't believe him -- and it said so. Now, accusations of bias have driven Mr. Schabas to resign.

Frozen bubbles
It's a gorgeous, haunting revelation of a once-a-year miracle of nature. Either that or a school of trout had gas. Point is, an Alberta's photographs of frozen bubbles in Banff National Park are remarkable.

Part Two

Baird resigns: Leitch
John Baird has called it quits. And not just as Minister of Foreign Affairs. After twenty years in the Conservative trenches, Mr. Baird is leaving politics entirely. Kellie Leitch is the Minister of Labour, and considers Mr. Baird a good friend.

Baird resigns: Heinbecker
Paul Heinbecker remarks on the legacy Mr. Baird leaves behind. Mr. Heinbecker is a former Canadian Ambassador to the United Nations, and was the senior foreign policy advisor to Brian Mulroney when he was Prime Minister.

Part Three

Target pharmacist
Pharmacists at Canadian Target stores are suddenly on a tight deadline. And they are not happy about the situation.

West Bank cartoonist
A West Bank cartoonist is under investigation by the Palestinian Authority. If you guessed it's because of a cartoon, you're right -- and give yourself another point if you can guess whom that cartoon appears to depict.

Fishing companies and commuities in southeastern Alaska are voicing concerns about the Red Chris gold and copper mine, which is set to open within days.
