I was super relieved to read that the police officer and civilians weren't killed.

I wasn't surprised to read the PM use the word terrorist. I think the liberal party say some stupid things but they're not politically dumb.

Police are pretty big targets, especially when they're stationary and alone. I wonder if this will cause the RCMP to look at the guidelines and stuff for what they consider dangerous extremism and what they don't.

First court appearance done - back in court next month ...
Quote
Abdulahi Hasan Sharif, the man accused of stabbing an Edmonton police constable on the weekend and running down four pedestrians on Jasper Avenue, made a brief first appearance Tuesday in an Edmonton courtroom.

Provincial court Judge Laura Stevens put the case over for six weeks to allow time for Sharif to get a lawyer and for the Crown to disclose whatever evidence it has.

Sharif, 30, remains in custody and will next be in court Nov. 14. Stevens said bail can be spoken to any time before then with a few days' notice.

A Somali refugee, Sharif is charged with five counts of attempted murder, four counts of criminal flight causing bodily harm, and one count each of dangerous driving and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose.

Still showing a bruise on his forehead that Edmonton police said resulted during two vehicle crashes on Saturday night, Sharif appeared in court without his hands cuffed. A Somali interpreter helped him understand the proceedings. Sharif appeared to be attentive and listening closely.

Edmonton defence lawyer Chady Moustarah assisted Sharif for Tuesday's appearance only. He said a community member is in the process of retaining counsel for Sharif ...

Zat so?

Authorities in the United States say a Somali refugee accused of attacking a police officer and running down four pedestrians in Edmonton was ordered removed from the country in 2011 by an immigration judge.

(...)

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said Tuesday that Sharif was transferred into its custody at the Otay Mesa Detention Center in San Diego on July 15, 2011, by U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

It says Sharif was ordered removed to Somalia on Sept. 22, 2011, and he waived his right to appeal the decision.

About two months later, he was released on an order of supervision by the department in San Diego "due to a lack of likelihood of his removal in the reasonably foreseeable future.''

He failed to report on his scheduled date of Jan. 24, 2012, and efforts to find him were not successful, the department said in a statement.

Sharif's name is spelled Abdullahi Hassan Sharif in the United States.

An official with Immigration and Customs Enforcement who spoke on the condition of anonymity told The Canadian Press they have no reason to believe it is not the same man.

Both a U.S. and Canadian government official told The Associated Press it is the same man.

The U.S. official said slightly different spellings are not uncommon. She also agreed to discuss the matter only if not quoted by name, because she was not authorized to discuss certain details of the case.

A spokesman for Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale said Sharif entered Canada from the United States through a regular port of entry in 2012 and was granted refugee status later that year.

"As minister Goodale has stated, there was no information that would have raised any red flags when he entered Canada. Due to privacy laws we cannot disclose further details of this case,'' Scott Bardsley said in an emailed statement ...

I wonder how many others have slipped through with "no information that would have raised any red flags" in the last several years. Didn't the Trudeau government rely on UN security screening for the 35,000?

Enough money can make plenty of fake credentials, practice a fake background story, etc... While I don't wanna sound too cynical, it is more then possible here.

Did Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale ever get around to fixing his "bombing" comment on Twitter about this attack?

I defer to Francophones around these parts, but the word used in the French version of the PM's statement was "attentat", which GoogTrans says is "bombing."  I'm guessing that in context, it can mean also mean "attack" - albeit not as directly as a term like "attaque".  And if social media's default translator is Google, you get "bombing".

That could be it. Maybe there is a discrepancy in translators? Google translate is showing the attack for l'attentat.  Attentat shows up the attempt.  My bad.

  My bad.
Not at all -- it's not like you're the only one who saw that one.
