The Syrian branch of al-Qaeda, currently calling itself Hay'at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), has succeeded in getting itself off Canada's list of designated terrorist entities following its latest identity shift. That complicates the task of prosecuting Canadians who travel to join the group, send it money or propagandize on its behalf.

Swedish Finance Minister Admits ‘Big Problems’ with Economy After Migrant Influx

In California, a Failed Fight for Car Owners’ Privacy Rights

California state law permits car owners to cover their legally parked cars to protect them against weather and incidental damage. It’d be easy to assume that, because cars can be covered in their entirety, it would also be perfectly okay for motorists to keep only their license plates covered on those same legally parked vehicles.
