East District, Alberta – On Oct. 9, 2018, RCMP members from the Elk Point Detachment, Cold Lake, Bonnyville Detachments along with Cold Lake Police Dog Services (PDS), and the Eastern Alberta District Rural Crime Reduction Unit (EADRCRU) were involved in a pursuit that spanned through Fishing Lake, Frog Lake, Bonnyville County, Elizabeth Metis Settlement, and briefly into Saskatchewan. RCMP Air Services were also utilized which was crucial in bringing the pursuit to an end without injuries.

“All RCMP members involved in this incident used teamwork and co-ordination to bring a safe resolution to the pursuit,” says Constable Guillaume Wilson (EADRCRU).  “They demonstrated a high level of professionalism despite the dangers they faced and the intensity of the situation.”

This incident started on the morning of Oct. 9, 2018 when multiple detachments conducted a joint operation to apprehend a male wanted on several outstanding warrants for serious offences. While in Fishing Lake, police believed they spotted the male inside a vehicle that failed to stop for police and fled at high speed. A pursuit was initiated which went through Fishing Lake, Frog Lake, a section of Bonnyville County, and into the Elizabeth Metis Settlement. Once inside the Elizabeth Metis Settlement, the suspect vehicle was able to evade police after striking the windshield of a police vehicle with a metal pipe.

Police believed the suspect vehicle was hiding in an area along the Alberta/Saskatchewan border and were able to contain this area with the help of the Saskatchewan RCMP until Alberta RCMP Air Services could arrive.

“Many people believe that crossing provincial lines will force us to cease efforts to apprehend them, but this is certainly not the case” says Constable Guillaume Wilson. “We are Canada’s police force and provincial borders will not prevent us from stopping criminals and keeping Canadians safe.”

Air Services located the suspect vehicle in a trail system along the Alberta/ Saskatchewan border and police vehicles on the ground quickly surrounded the area. This led to members successfully deflating one of the fleeing vehicle’s tires with a spike belt. Following this, EADRCRU and Cold Lake PDS re-engaged the suspect vehicle in a pursuit which led them through the Elizabeth Metis Settlement again until the fleeing vehicle was no longer able to continue and its occupants fled on foot.

All occupants were quickly arrested and taken into custody without incident. The vehicle used in this incident was later confirmed to be stolen.

Desmond Spence (18) and Cody Spence (19) of Edmonton were charged with multiple Criminal Code offences which include:

  • Assault on a police officer with a weapon
  • Flight from police
  • Resisting a peace officer
  • Possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000
  • Failing to comply with a probation order

Both were remanded into custody after a judicial hearing and are scheduled to appear in Lac La Biche Provincial Court via CCTV on Oct. 15, 2018.

A 16-year-old male from Cold Lake, a 17-year-old female from Frog Lake, and a 14-year-old female from Elizabeth Metis Settlement, all of whom cannot be named due to the provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act were charged with multiple Criminal Code offences which include:

  • Assault on a police officer with a weapon
  • Resisting a peace officer
  • Possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000
  • Flight from police

The 16-year-old male and 14-year-old female are also facing charges for failing to comply with conditions.

All youth were released on conditions after a judicial hearing and are scheduled to appear in Cold Lake Provincial Court on Oct. 24, 2018.

FBI admits identity of Hunter Biden laptop in Delaware trial after intelligence officials denied story in 2020

Published on

From LifeSiteNews

By Louis Knuffke

Hunter Biden’s laptop was identified on Wednesday in federal court through serial numbers and Apple records, and FBI agent Erika Jensen admitted it belonged to Biden, after the FBI and intelligence officials covered up the laptop story ahead of the 2020 election.

The Hunter Biden laptop was entered into evidence in an ongoing Delaware trial of Joe Biden’s scandal-ridden son for allegedly illegally purchasing a firearm as a drug addict.

Biden’s laptop, which 51 prominent U.S. intelligence officials publicly claimed was a “Russian hoax” in the lead-up to the 2020 presidential election, was identified on Wednesday, June 5, in federal court through serial numbers and Apple records. FBI agent Erika Jensen confirmed that the laptop belonged to Hunter Biden and that the FBI found no evidence of tampering with the device.

The laptop had been officially handed over to the FBI in December 2019 by the computer repair shop owner at whose store Hunter Biden reportedly left it.

Observers pointed out on social media the deception of which the FBI and intelligence officials have now been clearly shown to be guilty in covering up the existence of evidence that would expose the corruption and criminal activity of not only Hunter Biden but also his father just prior to the 2020 election.

As has since come to light, after the New York Post published its shocking report about the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop just weeks before the 2020 election, then-presidential candidate Joe Biden’s senior campaign advisor Antony Blinken orchestrated a letter signed by 51 officials of intelligence agencies smearing the laptop story as a “Russian hoax” in an attempt to keep it from public scrutiny just before the election.

Mainstream media and social media followed suit and the story was effectively suppressed for the time being, allowing Joe Biden to dismiss the scandal in a live 2020 presidential debate against Trump, citing the letter.

In 2022 U.S. Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida questioned FBI Cyber Division assistant director Bryan Vorndran about the whereabouts of the Hunter Biden laptop during a congressional hearing, and Vorndran then claimed he didn’t “have any information about the Hunter Biden laptop” despite his prominent position at the FBI Cyber Division. Gaetz then proceeded to enter a copy of the Hunter Biden laptop into the official Congressional Record.

Wednesday’s admission of the laptop into court evidence and the confirmation of its identity by the FBI as belonging to Hunter Biden is the latest development in a story that continues to expose the deep criminal corruption of the Biden family.

Communist China has been directly interfering in Canadian media via journalists, execs: int’l report

Published on

From LifeSiteNews

By Clare Marie Merkowsky

A newly revealed intelligence report is alleging that China has been pressuring mainstream Canadian media in an effort to manipulate the news via “direct engagement” with “media executives and journalists.”

According to a National Security and Intelligence Committee of Parliamentarians (NSICOP) report tabled June 3, the People’s Republic of China (PRC) has been interfering with Canadian media outlets by pressuring them to write favorably about the communist regime.   

The report found that China has been “interfering with Canadian media content via direct engagement with Canadian media executives and journalists.” 

A summary of six redacted sentences, which “were deleted to remove injurious or privileged information,” described how the PRC interfered with Canadian news.   

Examples included “paying to publish media articles without attribution, sponsoring media travel to the PRC, pressuring journalists to withdraw articles and creating false accounts on social media to spread disinformation.”  

This is hardly the first time China’s meddling in mainstream media has been exposed. In 2021, Canadian Security Intelligence Service Director David Vigneault warned that foreign interference in media had “become normalized,” especially with ethnic media outlets.    

“In particular, PRC media influence activities in Canada have become normalized,” the briefing memo stated.   

The report followed a March survey which revealed that the majority of Canadians believe that legacy media journalists and government officials are not trustworthy and are “lying to them” regularly.  

Chinese interference in government-funded media is hardly surprising considering Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s open admiration for China’s socialist regime.   

Beyond influencing the media, China is also alleged to be directly involved in the Canadian electoral process.

In April, the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) confirmed that China was working to help elect regime-friendly Canadian MPs.  

Later that same month, CSIS director David Vigneault testified that he gave Trudeau multiple warnings that agents of the Communist Chinese Party were going after Conservative MPs, with Trudeau denying he ever got such warnings.

As LifeSiteNews previously reported, details from a “top secret” memo have shown that Trudeau’s office was giving explicit warnings by Canadian intelligence that agents of the CCP were an “existential threat to Canadian democracy.”  

As a consequence of these allegations, the Foreign Interference Commission was convened to “examine and assess the interference by China, Russia, and other foreign states or non-state actors, including any potential impacts, to confirm the integrity of, and any impacts on, the 43rd and 44th general elections (2019 and 2021 elections) at the national and electoral district levels.”  

The Commission is being headed by Justice Marie-Josée Hogue, who had earlier said that she and her lawyers will remain “impartial” and will not be influenced by politics and began January 29. 

In January, Hogue said that she would “uncover the truth whatever it may be.”
