Russia Confirms Bomb Brought Down Plane Over Egypt
The Russian airliner that crashed in Egypt last month has been deemed the result of a terror attack.

The plane exploded and dispersed while in mid-air back on Saturday, October 31st in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula. Most of the A321 passengers were Russian tourists who were flying home from the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh. Russian President Vladimir Putin says they will hunt down the individuals responsible for this deadly attack of terror.
Canadian Ground Troops Increasing in Iraq
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has made the decision to expand the number of troops that are in IraQ in order to boost training for better military efforts fighting ISIS. Right now there are 69 special force trainers and Canada is currently in the midst of bringing air combat to an end by pulling CF-18 fighter jets that are part of a mission with the U.S. in Syria and Iraq. Trudeau revealed the plan during a news conference while aboard a Canadian Forces plane just a few hours before landing in the Philippine capital of Manila, where he’ll be taking part in the Asia Pacific Economic Co-operation summit. U.S. President Barack Obama will join Prime Minister Trudeau in what should be a decisive bilateral meeting at the summit on Thursday.
Suspected Suicide Bomber In GTA
It was downplayed by police but now GTA residents might be a little uneasy to learn of what appears to be a foiled suicide attack, right here at home. The Toronto Sun is reporting that just hours after the attacks in Paris, Peel Police found themselves in a standoff with a suspected suicide bomber in Mississauga. It happened just after 2am Saturday morning in the Bloor and Dixie area. The 26-year-old suspect — believed to be wearing a vest and holding a detonator –- was shot four times by officers but is expected to survive. It’s still unclear though if the vest was real.
