Dear God no: we’ve capitulated to those colonial Danes! – Hans Island, a 1.3-square-kilometre hunk of rock off the coast of Greenland, has been divided in two, The National Post reports.

And in a further insult to our sovereignty, U.S. fighter jets escorted a Seoul-bound Korean Airlines flight to CFB Comox after a bomb threat was received after its departure from YVR, The Globe reports.

A decision is expected today on TransLink’s proposed 12.5 per cent fare increase, CBC reminds us. The CBC, meanwhile, has announced cuts to 256 jobs and the cancellation of the CBC Radio program Dispatches and the TV news series Connect with Mark Kelley, The National Post reports.

A crown prosecutor told the Pickton Inquiry yesterday that a 1997 charge of attempted murder was stayed against the serial killer because the lone witness, found bloody and handcuffed – the key to her cuffs in Pickton’s pocket – was too strung out to provide credible testimony, The Globe reports.
