Ontario Man Charged With Falsely Claiming Terrorism Involvement
OTTAWA — The RCMP has arrested and charged an Ontario man with falsely claiming to have committed terrorist acts.The national police force says the criminal charge against Shehroze Chaudhry, 25, stems from numerous media interviews in which he described travelling to Syria in 2016 to join the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant and committing acts of extremism.The Mounties say the Burlington, Ont., man’s interviews were published in multiple media outlets, aired on podcasts and featured in a television documentary, raising public safety concerns.READ MORE Canadian Accused Of Sending Ricin To White House Enters ‘Not Guilty’ Plea Ontario Mandates Curfew For Bars, Restaurants As Strip Clubs Shut Down Liberals Make Deal With NDP And Likely Avoid A Fall Election Chaudhry is charged with a Criminal Code offence of perpetrating a hoax related to terrorist activity.He is to appear in court in Brampton, Ont., on Nov. 16.RCMP Supt. Christopher deGale says hoaxes can generate fear and create the illusion there is a potential threat to Canadians.“As a result, the RCMP takes these allegations very seriously, particularly when individuals, by their actions, cause the police to enter into investigations in which human and financial resources are invested and diverted from other ongoing priorities,” said deGale, the officer in charge of an RCMP security enforcement team.The RCMP says it collaborated with several other agencies during the course of the investigation.This report by The Canadian Press was first published Sept. 25, 2020.Also on HuffPost:

COVID Testing At Some Ontario Pharmacies Spurs Confusion About Who's Eligible
TORONTO — Select Ontario pharmacies began offering COVID-19 tests on Friday but confusion over how to book one and who qualified for the assessments saw several people turned away.The province announced the appointment-only tests for certain asymptomatic individuals earlier this week, saying they would help ease the burden on busy assessment centres.But only certain individuals — such as those with loved ones in long-term care homes, close contacts of a known case or high-risk workers — are eligible to get the tests offered at up to 60 locations.Laura Smith said she didn’t realize pharmacy testing was for certain people and by appointment only.She showed up at a Shoppers Drug Mart at 8 a.m. after being notified of a possible exposure by the COVID Alert app, but was turned away.“I didn’t see where to schedule so I came by,” said Smith, who said it was her first time trying to get tested.“Now I know,” she said with a shrug, adding that she planned to head to an assessment centre to wait in line.The launch of pharmacy screening came a day after the provincial government changed its guidelines around who can get a test.Premier Doug Ford had previously said anyone who wanted a test could get one but announced Thursday that those without symptoms should stay away from the testing sites, with some exceptions.That means some asymptomatic people who want reassurance they don’t have the virus will not have access to testing offered by the province.Sam White, who also showed up at a pharmacy without an appointment, said he had been seeking peace of mind before travelling to the United Kingdom. “It’s still pretty confusing,” White said. “Because I’m travelling I do want to know, because I don’t want to be infecting anyone else.”At the same pharmacy, Afifa Faisal said she was turned away from booking a test for her four-year-old son because he was too young to get one at a pharmacy.“I’m glad they have pharmacies for COVID testing — I just wish that they had clarified it was for kids five and over,” she said, adding that staff told her the wait-list had already grown to more than 500 people.Health Minister Christine Elliott said Friday the government knew it would take time for the public to fully understand the changes to testing criteria. She noted the eligibility requirements around pharmacy testing were to ensure priority groups could have quick access to tests.“I know there has been some confusion,” she said. “We want to make sure that people who absolutely need to be tested, who are asymptomatic, can go quickly to receive their test.”RELATED Ontarians Without COVID Symptoms Shouldn't Go To Testing Centres: Ford Some Ontario Pharmacies Will Start COVID-19 Testing This Week Ontario Mandates Curfew For Bars, Restaurants As Strip Clubs Shut Down Chris Hayes was among those who had been able to book an appointment for a pharmacy test and got one Friday morning.He said he happened to call the pharmacy during the first hour that they started booking tests and called his experience seamless.“The more people that can get tested ... the better,” Hayes said.John Papastergiou, a pharmacy owner at a Shoppers Drug Mart in Toronto, said his team was prepared for logistical issues.“We’re trying to use an appointment model so we don’t have people congregating at the pharmacy. That’s very important,” he said.“We’re emphasizing that this is for asymptomatic patients that need to be pre-screened. You can’t just drop in.”He said the swabs that pharmacies deploy for the tests are particularly easy for staff to use. The testing swab most Ontarians are familiar with goes deep into the nose, but the ones pharmacies use only touch closer to the end of the nostrils.“It’s a much, much simpler swab to administer, more comfortable on the patient and easier to do in the pharmacy as well,” said Papastergiou.Ontario reported 409 new cases of COVID-19 Friday, and one new death related to the virus.This report by The Canadian Press was first published Sept. 24, 2020.Also on HuffPost:
