How an ex-RCMP officer raised an anti-abortion flag at Ottawa City Hall

13 Mai 2017

Just after sunrise Thursday, 89-year-old Francis Barrett accomplished something that had never been done before in the nation's capital: raising an anti-abortion flag in front of City Hall.

The grey flag was emblazoned with the words "National March for Life Ottawa" in white and red, and as Barrett pulled on the rope to hoist the flag to the top of the pole, a crowd of more than 20 cheered and applauded.

"I was in second heaven," said Barrett, a retired RCMP intelligence officer who describes himself as a "pro-life warrior." He couldn't stop smiling at the sight of the waving flag, he said.

But others couldn't stomach what they saw.

Solidarity wristbands to support officer charged in Abdi death causing concern

30 Mars 2017

OTTAWA – A batch of wristbands to show solidarity with a police officer accused of manslaughter is causing some serious concern.

According to the CBC, around 1,200 black and blue silicone wristbands were ordered to show support for Constable Daniel Montsion, who is facing charges in the death of Abdirahman Abdi.

The wristbands are being sold to police officers for two dollars, and feature the words ‘united we stand.’

The head of the police union says it’s a show of support for a fellow police officer going through a difficult time.
