Lethbridge MP challenging federal government crackdown on COVID-19 misinformation

Published

1 minute read

Is it right to launch a defence of COVID-19 misinformation?   Lethbridge MP Rachael Harder is doing just that and her campaign is taking off.  This has nothing to do with defending bad information about the virus sweeping the world.  It’s all about defending freedom of speech.  Harder is striking a chord with Canadians who disagree strongly with both the way the federal government is implementing the new law, and with the idea that government should have the final say on what Canadians can or cannot say.

Man faces second-degree murder charge in Calgary chef’s death in March

Published on

CALGARY — Police have charged a 26-year-old Calgary man in the death of a longtime chef during an attempted break-and-enter three months ago.

Anthony Archie Michel Christian is accused of second-degree murder and is to next appear in court on Monday.

Investigators have said 56-year-old Christophe Herblin responded to an alarm about 3 a.m. on March 14 at a cafe he was about to open.

Officers searched and cleared the area, but Herblin remained in a parking lot for three hours waiting for a contractor to arrive to secure the business.

Police say he was then attacked by three people who had returned to the scene.

Investigators are hoping to talk to two people, Fritz Chiefmoon and Kiara Leather of Calgary, who are believed to have more information about the case.

Herblin was an executive sous chef at the Glencoe Golf and Country Club in Calgary.

His new business, a French deli and cafe, was to open shortly after he was killed.
