From the master list of Topics/Threads, sure; that's easy. But from the home page? Does it exist?

Behold ....
The latest on this dude: "Farah Mohamed Shirdon charged in absentia for terrorism-related activity"
A Calgary man who allegedly travelled to fight with the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, and at one time was rumoured to have been killed in Iraq, has now been charged in absentia in Canada with numerous terrorism-related criminal offences.

The RCMP announced Thursday that 22-year-old Farah Mohamed Shirdon faces six charges under the Criminal Code related to his alleged support of ISIS, which RCMP said began after he left Canada in March 2014.

"Our investigation showed that Shirdon served in a combat role and performed other functions for ISIS such as recruiting, fundraising, encouraging others to commit violence, and spreading propaganda — all designed to enhance the activities of the ISIS," assistant commissioner Marlin DeGrand, the officer in charge of RCMP criminal operations in Alberta, said in a release ....

xx *Warning - slightly misleading title* Plane crashes at 14 Wing Greenwood

Plane crashes at 14 Wing Greenwood

A Lockheed CP-140 Aurora was damaged Thursday morning at 14 Wing Greenwood airbase during an attempted takeoff.

“The plane aborted takeoff, we’re not too sure why, and slid off the runway. It’s under investigation,” said Sgt. Pete Nicholson, spokesperson for the airbase.

The incident occurred at approximately 10:20 a.m. Thursday.

All 17 people on board were unharmed and the extent of the damage to the plane is also under investigation, said Nicholson.

The flight was a “normal flight” as part of their daily operations at the base.

The Aurora is a plane commonly used by the Royal Canadian Air Force for maritime patrol.

As there will be an investigation, etc, anyone who is privy to information should remember their Ps and Qs.
