National Post: Man punches grizzly bear in the nose, survives B.C. beach battle

Randal Warnock received 30 stitches after his tangle with a grizzly bear, some on his ring finger and his left knee, but most of them were around his right knee. Warnock hobbled to his skiff to get to his fishing boat, leaving behind a bloody trail. He bandaged himself up on his boat as he headed toward the nearest hospital in Port Hardy and called the Canadian Coast Guard, which sent a couple of vessels that arrived two hours later.

Whig-Standard: Federal Govt urged to stop high wakes among high-water Thousand Islands

Township of Leeds and the Thousand Islands has urged the federal government for emergency measures to restrict boaters' wakes on the St. Lawrence River. Councillor Jeff Lackie wants the Ministry of Transport to impose temporary restricted-wake laws on the river to protect property owners being hammered by record-high water levels in the St. Lawrence. Lackie requests the ministry restrict wakes to no higher than 15 inches and that it apply to boats within 200 metres of shore. The requested measure would last until the end of this year or until the river recedes 15 inches, whichever comes first, he said. Lackie said the 200-metre restriction is meant to mirror a similar law on the United States' side of the river that limits boat wakes within 600 feet from shore.

Washington Examiner: House spending bill funds all of Trump's initial $1.6B wall plan

The $44.3B House measure pays for a broad array of federal security programs, including aviation security, border and immigration enforcement, customs, cyberterrorism protection, drug smuggling prevention and natural disaster response. The legislation includes $1.6B for a "physical barrier construction along the U.S. southern border." The move will appease Trump voters, but will likely set up a spending showdown with minority Democrats, who have pledged to block spending legislation that funds the wall. The bill includes funding increases aimed at enhancing border security, including $100M to hire 500 new border patrol agents and $106M for new aircraft technology for use along the border. ~ Torres

Trump told the large Polish crowd on the site of the Warsaw Uprising in 1944 that Western countries will confront the threat of "radical Islamic terrorism," declaring, "we will win." "We must stand united against these shared enemies to strip them of their territory, their funding, their networks, and any form of ideological support," Trump said to the Polish people, whose government has taken a firm stance against accepting Syrian refugees. "While we will always welcome new citizens who share our values and love our people, our borders will always be closed to terrorism and extremism." Trump added, "We cannot accept those who reject our values, and who use hatred to justify violence against the innocent."

David M. Shribman - Pittsburgh Post-Gazette: A good neighbour among nations; The long, undefended U.S.-Canadian border reflects a deep history of shared values

When the United States celebrated its 150th birthday, Calvin Coolidge was President, Al Capone's gangsters were running wild in Chicago, NBC was just being formed and Gene Tunney was girding to defeat Jack Dempsey. Generally, it was a quiet, contented country, not all that important in world affairs, not all that worried about war or depression. This coming Saturday, Canada turns 150 in a different world, more quiet and contented than its neighbor to the South, about as influential in world affairs as the United States was in 1926, indeed very much like America was then: on the rise, admired globally, a little self-conscious, but overall a relatively uncontroversial force for good worldwide. Of course, Canada's history is as old as the United States, also originating from English colonies -- ones that didn't revolt -- and drawing the majority of its original English-speaking settlers from those who remained loyal to the British Crown in the face of the American Revolution.
