Harry and Meghan may be heading to Canada but does Canada want them?

Harry and Meghan may be heading to Canada but does Canada want them?The royal couple could find privacy on Vancouver Island but questions have been raised about the cost of providing securityResidents of Vancouver Island say that its rugged beauty and tranquility make it one of the best places to live in Canada.“The hiking is beautiful, the trees are beautiful, the ocean is beautiful. I can’t say enough good things about it,” said Sue Rogers, who moved to the east coast community of North Saanich seven years ago. “I have way more space than anywhere I’ve ever lived before – but I know my neighbours way better.”Those neighbours may soon include Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, after Buckingham Palace confirmed that the couple plan to “spend time in Canada” once they step back from public life in the UK.Over Christmas, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex rented a sprawling mansion in North Saanich, and Markle was spotted there again this week.“There’s a lot of excitement about it,” Rogers said. “But people here also understand [the couple] wanting to have some of the peace and quiet we have here. It makes perfect sense.”British Columbia’s premier, John Horgan, has said that he was “giddy” at the prospect of the Sussexes’ move. But a current of scepticism across the country has also emerged, as Canadians begin to tally up the potential costs of having royalty living among them.One focus for discontent is the potential cost of the extensive security detail the couple would require: estimates have ranged from C$ 1.3m (US$ 1m) to more than C$ 10m (US$ 7.7m) annually.“Canadians do not have an appetite to pick up that bill,” said Shachi Kurl, executive director at the Angus Reid Institute, whose polling firm found that nearly three-quarters of Canadians were unhappy at the prospect of tax dollars funding royal security.During royal visits, the Canadian government foots the bill. But questions have arisen over whether the couple would now qualify for official protection.Some have argued that Canada will just have to cough up. “It costs what it costs, and Canada should pay it. Grownup countries cost money to operate,” said the National Post columnist Matt Gurney this week. “Complaining about it is all tootypical of us – Canadian cheapness at its worst.”Others have questioned if the couple will face the same treatment as other prospective immigrants.“[Harry’s] going to have a very tough time,” said Mario Bellissimo, a Toronto-based immigration lawyer, who said the prince’s age,35, and lack of postsecondary education both worked against his immigration application.“This might surprise people, but Meghan would likely be the principal applicant – and not Harry,” he said. Meghan lived in Toronto for several years, filming the show Suits – which makes her a candidate for self-employment, with her husband and son probably included as dependants on her application.The Beaverton, a satirical Canadian publication, poked fun at the pair of “unskilled foreigners” and asked if Harry might “illegally take away ceremonial jobs [such as ribbon-cutting and handshaking] from hard working Canadians”.Meanwhile, the episode has cast a light Canada’s complex relationship with the crown. Polls routinely show that Canadians are split on the question of whether to continue with the monarchy, but recent polling shows that 45% of the public wants to do away with it.And even those who support the institution have chafed at the idea of actually having members of the royal family living in the country.“Canada welcomes people of all faiths, nationalities and races, but if you’re a senior member of our Royal Family, this country cannot become your home,” said an editorial in the centre-right Globe and Mail this week.The newspaper’s opposition to the move was not an argument for becoming a republic, but for “maintaining Canada’s unique and highly successful monarchy” – an institution more symbolic than literal.Back on Vancouver island, Rogers said she could see why her community would make a good fit for the young family. “Privacy is not something that they ever get. And I can understand why, after spending, a couple of days out here, you really just feel like you’re secluded,” she said. “There’s just a sense wanting to leave them alone.”

Guatemala sweeps up migrant group, returns them to border

Guatemala sweeps up migrant group, returns them to borderGuatemalan police accompanied by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents swept up the majority of a group of some 300 migrants Thursday, loaded them on buses and took them back to the Honduran border, effectively dashing their plans to travel together in a “caravan” with hopes of reaching the United States. Praying and singing songs, the group of 300 migrants — adults, teens and young children — had set out from a shelter in Entre Rios under rainy skies before dawn and walked about six hours before stopping in the town of Morales to eat and rest. There they were challenged by police who asked for their entry documents, and nearly all had crossed into Guatemala irregularly and didn’t have such documentation.

Saudis Put Jamal Khashoggi’s Murder Behind Them With Death Sentences and a Three-Day Rave

Saudis Put Jamal Khashoggi’s Murder Behind Them With Death Sentences and a Three-Day RavePARIS—It looks like heads will roll in Saudi Arabia, literally, for the murder last year of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. But they’ll be detached from people that few Saudis and fewer Americans have ever heard of, and certainly not Crown Prince Mohammed Salman (MBS), the mercurial and malign monarch-in-waiting beloved of the Trump clan.Never mind the CIA’s belief that the elaborately choreographed and gruesomely executed murder of The Washington Post columnist could not have been carried out unless MBS authorized it. Conveniently, the two top aides who would have connected the crown prince to the crime reportedly were cleared.The court statement Monday announcing the sentence named none of the five condemned to death. But Saudi Deputy General Prosecutor Shalaan Al-Shalaan told a press conference “We found that Khashoggi’s murder was not premeditated.” This travesty is in fact much bigger news outside the kingdom of Saudi Arabia than inside. There, it’s party time (or hangover time) in the wake of a high-tech three-day rave meant to titillate the kingdom’s young people with hitherto banned music, dancing, and even a few far-from-veiled semi-celebrities from the United States and Britain. As the Associated Press described it, “More than 70 world-renowned DJs were invited to perform across five stages to the backdrop of surrealist performances—including one with a woman in a skintight sky blue leotard writhing from a hot-air balloon over a crowd of young Saudi men.”MBS, better than any of his forebears, understands the power of what Roman tyrants used to call “bread and circuses,” a phrase attributed to Juvenal and satisfactorily defined on Wikipedia as “the creation of public approval, not through exemplary or excellent public service or public policy, but through diversion; distraction; or the mere satisfaction of the immediate, shallow requirements of a populace.”Trump Bet the Whole Middle East on Khashoggi’s Alleged Murderer. Now He’s Doubling Down.As MBS’ decrepit father, King Salman, fades from the scene, the crown prince has made colossal mistakes, including the Yemen war that’s become Riyadh’s quagmire. But he has managed to crush and intimidate virtually all challenges to his power. Rival princes have been imprisoned and stripped of fortunes. Liberal critics have been jailed, flogged, and in some cases sentenced to death while the once-powerful religious police have been threatened or bribed into submission.(As I write this, I cannot help but think how envious an American president from Queens must be when he looks at this man who will be king—a prince rich beyond even Donald Trump’s dreams of avarice, with power as absolute as any tyrant’s in the Middle Ages.)But let us return for a moment to the matter of Jamal Khashoggi—the murder that Trump and MBS would like us to forget, and an inconvenient atrocity that most young Saudis already are tossing in the circular file of their well-distracted memories.In Saudi Arabia as elsewhere, as long as people feel prosperous and are allowed to indulge their appetites, the abuse of authority by their rulers is treated as political theater beyond their control, and they respond with a willing suspension of disbelief.Thus it hardly matters that the Saudi prosecutor’s claim defies credulity when he says the butchering of Khashoggi—for such it was—“was not premeditated.”But permit me to go over a few of the grisly details again as revealed last summer by the United Nations’ special rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions and reported in The Daily Beast. Turkish authorities had bugged the Saudi consulate in Istanbul and various investigators, including the CIA, subsequently were allowed to listen to the recordings. Members of the U.N. team took meticulous notes on the dialogue and the other sounds monitored as Khashoggi was killed and then chopped up for disposal on Oct. 2, 2018.They heard Dr. Salah Mohammed Tubaigy, from the Saudi interior ministry, explaining to the head of the hit team before Khashoggi’s arrived how they’d get dispose of the portly journalist, referred to as “the sacrificial animal.”“Joints will be separated. It is not a problem,” says Tubaigy. “If we take plastic bags and cut it into pieces, it will be finished. We will wrap each of them.”A man more or less of Khashoggi’s build then dressed in Khashoggi’s clothes and walked out the back of the consulate to be seen by closed-circuit cameras, while plastic garbage bags were carried out the front.We don’t know at this juncture whether Tubaigy or the man in Khashoggi’s clothes were among those sentenced to death, or given lesser penalties, or cleared somehow of the crime. In any case, Khashoggi’s remains have never been found, and MBS must have known all along how this would play at home.
