The co-founder of a Regina community group says regular weekend foot patrols have made a difference in the North Central neighbourhood.

Since June, White Pony Lodge co-founder Shawna Oochoo has led over 90 volunteers on patrols on Friday and Saturday nights.

“I think it’s about rebuilding our community’s pride,” she said.

On Friday night, a Global News crew followed a group of seven volunteers as they patrolled a route covering 5th Avenue, Angus Street and Rae Street in the heart of North Central.

The evening started with a briefing from Oochoo on safety and procedures, followed by an optional smudge ceremony to bless the patrol.

The volunteers then geared up —; armed with bright vests, walkie-talkies, plus tongs and buckets for disposing of hazardous materials.

Once on patrol, the group splits into two crews to cover both sides of the street. Immediately, team leaders on both sides called the patrol to a stop to collect syringes and other paraphernalia that was littering the sidewalks and adjacent lawns.

“A lot of needles and stuff like that. Paraphernalia, weapons, that’s kind of usually what our findings are on a patrol,” Oochoo said.

In late August, the patrol drew attention to an abandoned building on Angus Street where they found “needles all over the place”.

Upon returning to that property, the group was pleased to find less dangerous material than before.

On top of clearing the streets of potentially dangerous materials, Oochoo believes the weekend patrols are building positive relationships within the community.

Jan Morier is a North Central resident who regularly participates in the patrols. Just months ago, she admitted she was afraid to leave the house at night.

Since volunteering with the group, Morier said she has seen a new side of the neighbourhood.

“It has taken a very short time to build up the confidence in this movement and to feel good about walking beside your neighbours in taking back our streets,” Morier said.

Late into the Friday night patrol, a resident named Lloyd called the volunteers over to his property, asking for help to clear the neighbouring property of syringes and other paraphernalia. Oochoo and her crew happily obliged.

“It’s a good thing these guys come along and they pick [the syringes] up and it’s dealt with,” Lloyd said.

Global's Blake Lough joined seven volunteers on a Friday night North Central patrol.

After sweeping an empty lot for needles and weapons, volunteers said it was a quiet patrol for a Friday night. The group succeeded in disposing dozens of syringes and had safely collected a small weapon.

But volunteers also succeeded in meeting a handful of new, curious residents —; people who, like Oochoo, want to keep their community safe.

“When we’re out on patrol, we’re not just patrolling the streets. We’re engaging the community, we’re building rapport, we’re building relationships, [and] we’re helping repair relationships too,” Oochoo said.

“There are a lot of labels and a lot of ideas about what North Central is. But when you’re actually here, it’s a completely different story.”

Security surrounding Donald Trump’s election night headquarters in New York City is already high.

NYPD swat team members surround the Midtown Manhattan hotel that will house Trump’s “victory party” Tuesday night, as his campaign calls it.

Both Al Qaeda and ISIS have threatened attacks on election night, prompting the NYPD to be out in full force.

This is the first time in 70 years both presidential candidates have been in New York City on election night, and that has elevated terror threat levels.

Both Al Qaeda and ISIS have threatened attacks on election night.

The NYPD has responded with an increased presence. Five thousand officers will be deployed throughout the city which, according to police, is comparable to New Year’s Eve.

The NYPD has also tripled the capacity of their counterterrorist unit.

Both Trump and Hillary Clinton’s venues will be closed to outside traffic starting at 6 a.m. Tuesday morning. The blocks surrounding Trump Tower in Manhattan will also be closed to traffic whenever Trump is in the building Tuesday.

The Trump venue for election night is small. I mean, really small. It feels smaller than where I was for the Canadian election, at Stephen Harper’s event in Calgary.

While security is intense outside the hotel, it’s so far been pretty minimal inside. We’ve been told that will likely change tomorrow.

It was a special ceremony to remember Saskatchewan’s fallen heroes as members of the military joined ranks with a local student troop.

Students from St. Margaret’s school came together with members of 15 Wing, and the Moose Jaw Legion, to place a poppy at each headstone at Rosedale cemetery in Moose Jaw, Sask.

According to 15 Wing Commander Colonel Denis O’Reilly, the movement enables students to connect more with Canada’s history.

“I think it’s a more personal touch. It also allows us to connect that educational piece,” O’Reilly said.

“They’ll probably celebrate with their families on the day that everyone’s off work but this is nice because we can bring it into the classroom,” he said.

It’s a history lesson that goes beyond the classroom. The movement started five years ago in Edmonton, and today acts as a present reminder of past sacrifices.

“I hope the younger ones will come up and do as good of a job as they did in the past and keep this country as it has been,” veteran Alex Cameron said.

Grade 7 student Rhys Turcott said his great-uncle fought in the second world war. He said it gives him that personal connection —; to help him better understand what many have sacrificed.

“This year, I keep on thinking about Remembrance Day and just thinking about all these families,” Turcott said.

“Remembering everybody who helped us and fought for our freedom and helped other countries. And some even lost their lives, which is kind of crazy,” he said.

Another student, Danamay Maneso echoed those thoughts. She said she hopes the ceremony can help people of her generation learn more about the history of Remembrance Day.

“This ceremony means remembering all the people that helped or saved our country… and bring their stories to our generation and generations to come,” Maneso said.

WOODRUFF, S.C. – Investigators discovered a third body on the property of a South Carolina man who is now linked to seven deaths and the kidnapping of a woman who was found chained inside a storage container, authorities said Monday.

Todd Kohlhepp, 45, became a suspect after the woman was found Thursday chained by her neck and ankle in a metal storage container on his 95-acre property near rural Woodruff.

The body of her boyfriend was found a day later. The couple had been missing for about two months.

The other remains were found near one another Sunday and Monday, and authorities are not sure who they are. Investigators were expected back at the property on Tuesday, but Spartanburg County Coroner Rusty Clevenger said he didn’t think there were any more bodies.

“As the coroner, that’s all I have been advised of. That was the total number of bodies I was told was on the property. If I am told there are more, I will be back,” he said.

Following Kohlhepp’s arrest, he confessed to a 2003 quadruple slaying at a motorcycle shop in the small town of Chesnee, said Spartanburg County Sheriff Chuck Wright. He was denied bond Sunday on four murder charges for gunning down the motorcycle shop’s owner, service manager, mechanic and bookkeeper.

Wright has said Kohlhepp gave details only the killer would know. His confession came a day before the 13th anniversary of the crime, which many feared would never be solved.

Before his confession, authorities granted him three requests, WSPA-TV reported (). One was to transfer money to a girl Kohlhepp says he’s helping raise, to help pay for college. The second was to give his mother a photograph, and the third was to let him talk to his mother.

Kohlhepp is charged with kidnapping the woman, and more criminal counts are expected. He has chosen to represent himself and not hire an attorney, Wright told the Spartanburg Herald-Journal.

Wright, who was first elected about a year after the Superbike Motorsports killings, is now investigating what appears to be a crime spree stretching over more than a decade.

WATCH: Missing woman found ‘chained up like a dog’ inside storage container

As a teen, Kohlhepp was sentenced to 14 years in prison in Arizona for binding and raping a 14-year-old neighbour at gunpoint. Released in 2001, he managed to obtain a real estate license in South Carolina in 2006. The search for human remains has now expanded to other properties he owns or used to own, including places outside of South Carolina, Wright said Sunday. He declined to elaborate.

READ MORE: Body discovered on property where woman found chained up ‘like a dog’

Kohlhepp showed investigators Saturday where he says he buried two other victims on the property he bought two years ago.

“We’re not even close” to identifying the remains or cause of death, Wright said. “We can’t tell anything.”

Kohlhepp did not tell investigators who was buried there. Removing the remains to “preserve every bit of evidence” is a meticulous, time-consuming process, the coroner said.

The gravesites Kohlhepp pointed to are in addition to the body found Friday in a shallow grave at the site. Authorities identified that victim as the boyfriend of the woman found Thursday. Clevenger said he died of multiple gunshot wounds.

The Associated Press is not naming the woman because the suspect is a sex offender, though authorities have not said whether she was sexually assaulted.

It’s weather that was desperately needed back in October to harvest the crop but farmers in the province say they’ll take it either way.

A warm spell across parts of Saskatchewan over the weekend shattered records dating back nearly seven decades, bringing renewed hope for some farmers who may get their crop off after all so long as the sun continues to shine.

“Right at the start of October we finished last year,” Saskatoon area farmer Mark Thompson said.

“We were kind of on pace to be there this year too, had a few combine issues things kind of set us back then the snow came and we didn’t move a tire for three weeks.”

    Thompson said he and his crew still have five per cent to go after managing to get thousands of dollars in standing quinoa in the bin.

    “It wasn’t pretty want came but you go further north – there’s a lot of people that got a lot more snow and it’s been ugly.”

    So little has happened in the fields since the last crop report was issued on Oct. 24 by the province that officials say no new data has been collected.

    At that time, 82 per cent of the 2016 crop had been combined. The five-year average (2011-15) for this time of year is 99 per cent combined.

    “The furthest behind was the west-central region at only 73 per cent of the crop combined,” Shannon Friesen, acting cropping management specialist for the Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture, said.

    “Typically, in that west-central region they’re one of the first to be done but this year they’re certainly on the lower end.”

    “It’s not the first time people have combined in November by any means but it’s really wet out there,” Thompson said.

    “We’re fighting, we’re playing in the mud, we’re putting dirt through the combines and it’s slow going.”

    While Thompson still isn’t sure about the quality of the crop, he and his crew are happy they didn’t have to resort to Plan B or Plan C – next spring.

    “This is definitely good news for the farmers they’ve been wanting a really long warm dry spell and that’s what we’re getting now,” Global Saskatoon Meteorologist Peter Quinlan said.

    “It started over the weekend and it’s going to continue right until early next week, it’s looking like not until the middle of November that we’re going to see a major shift in our pattern.”

    The problem, according to Friesen, is October set some farmers back not just days but in some cases a month-and-a-half.

    “There are still some people who are in a lot worse shape and we may be sending our combines to help them after we’re done,” Thompson said.

A panel of Alberta Court of Appeal justices has reserved its decision as to the fate of Nicholas Rasberry, a Calgary man convicted of killing his neighbour more than three years ago.

Rasberry was convicted of manslaughter in the death of Craig Kelloway, a Calgary teacher.

The prosecution asked for a murder conviction, while defence proposed Rasberry be acquitted.

Kelloway was stabbed 37 times in Rasberry’s Auburn Bay home on May 4, 2013.

The Crown pointed to the fact that three knives were used as proof it was not self defence, suggesting Rasberry made a choice to “put Mr. Kelloway down.”

Defence argued Kelloway was threatening to rape Rasberry and that he was provoked.

“Is there a rape victim that’s not provoked?” defence lawyer Hersh Wolch said to the court.

“To be fair—he wasn’t raped,” one of the appeal justices clarified.

    Rasberry told the operator: “Kelloway tried to f—; me in the ass.”

    When the operator guided him through CPR, Rasberry can be heard telling Kelloway he hated him.

    “The guy just tried to rape me,” Rasberry said.

    The original trial judge found Rasberry was not acting in self defence, but also said he didn’t feel there was an intent to kill.

    Last December, Rasberry was sentenced to seven years in jail—but with credit for time served he was left with five years and four months in his sentence.

    Soon after, the Court of Appeal granted Rasberry bail pending the appeal.

    The victim’s family has told Global News they want a new trial.

    “The best-case scenario would be for the second-degree murder charge to be applied and he be given the maximum sentence,” family friend Keith MacIntyre told Global News Tuesday.

    MacIntyre said Kelloway’s parents have been feeling the stress of the ongoing battle for justice in the case.

    “It’s taken its toll on them mentally and physically,” he said.

    “You never really get past it and we think about Craig every day,” MacIntyre said. “We won’t give up on the fight for justice if this appeal doesn’t give us the results we’re hoping for…we’ll take it to the next step [Supreme Court] if it doesn’t go our way.”

That was just one of dozens of videos posted on social media by Veronica Bouchard, described by some as one of the first female neo-Nazi YouTubers.

The Greater Toronto Area woman may also be among the youngest —; she just turned 19 this month.

Posting videos under a pseudonym, Bouchard uses racial slurs, calls for a “white” only Canada and blames increasing crime rates on immigrants and refugees.

Bouchard is angry that when returning from Germany, the Canada Border Services Agency detained her at the airport.

She said officers went through her personal diary, then seized her notebooks and laptop.

“They said, ‘We are investigating you for promotion of hate propaganda’ for what they saw I wrote,” said Bouchard.

YouTube shut down Bouchard’s account and has repeatedly pulled her videos off their site, but others have reposted them.

She said even the video where she sings Happy Birthday to Hitler shouldn’t be seen as offensive.

“I did it because it was funny,” she said.

She was asked if she thought it was funny to Jewish people whose families died in the Holocaust.

“I think if they had a sense of humour they would find it funny,” she replied. “I made that video to guide to another video where I talked about Adolf Hitler in a different [way], the German side of the story.”

Berl Nadler, Co-Chair for the Toronto Council of the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs said while Canada isn’t immune to racism, Bouchard’s videos are more disturbing in that they are so “explicit” in their hatred.

READ MORE: Adolf Hitler had 1 testicle and a really small penis, according to historians

“This is Hitlerian Nazi propaganda,” Nadler said “Not only is it anti-Semitism, she hates everybody that isn’t her.”

Bouchard said she doesn’t hate, she just believes races shouldn’t mix. She said she developed her views by growing up in the multicultural community of Markham.

Nadler’s response was pretty straightforward.

“Get an education, grow up,” he said.

Bouchard argued it’s about freedom of speech and that she should be able to express her opinion, even if it goes against popular opinion.

“We are very different, and that’s OK,” she said. “It shouldn’t be taboo.”

There are a number of ways to honour the men and women who have fought for Canada this Remembrance Day in Calgary, including the Field of Crosses ceremony.

Since 2009, the field along Memorial Drive west of Centre Street has been filled with white crosses memorializing over 3,000 southern Alberta soldiers who have died in battle since the Boer War in 1899.

LOS ANGELES – Real estate heir Robert Durst pleaded not guilty to murder Monday in the death of a friend who authorities said Durst wanted to keep from talking to investigators looking into the disappearance of his first wife.

The 73-year-old Durst, wearing a neck brace and seated in a wheelchair, entered the plea during a long-awaited appearance in a Los Angeles courtroom in the death of Susan Berman 16 years ago.

“I do want to say here and now, though, I am not guilty,” a pale and frail-looking Durst said in court. “I did not kill Susan Berman.”

Durst’s statement came after his attorney unsuccessfully argued to ban news media cameras from the courtroom.

Prosecutors said they would not be seeking the death penalty against Durst.

Durst was already a well-known figure in his native New York. But he became a national name when HBO aired the documentary The Jinx that followed his life and cast suspicion on him involving several crimes.

Los Angeles County prosecutors have been seeking to bring Durst to California since shortly after his arrest in March 2015.

But he first faced a federal weapons charge in New Orleans, where he pleaded guilty in April then began serving a seven-year prison sentence in Indiana.

The arrest came just as the final episode of The Jinx was airing. The HBO documentary examined alleged ties to the killing of Berman and the death and dismemberment of his neighbour Morris Black in 2001.

READ MORE: Video appears to show murder suspect Robert Durst urinating in a CVS pharmacy

Durst testified that he killed Black in self-defence and was acquitted of murder.

Durst’s attorney, Dick DeGuerin, said Durst has been wanting to face the Los Angeles charge for the past year and a half.

“We’re glad to be here, glad to get the proceedings underway,” DeGuerin said. “Bob is not guilty. He did not kill Susan Berman, he doesn’t know who did and he’s eager to go to trial.”

The lawyer declined to answer questions from reporters, including inquiries about his client’s health.

Prosecutors also declined to comment.

Gloria Allred, a prominent attorney, told reporters that she was speaking on behalf of a woman who thought of Berman as a mother and is still devastated by her loss.

“She has been waiting a lot longer than Robert Durst’s attorneys for this day to happen,” Allred said. “She wants to have justice in this case.”

Durst, an estranged member of the family that runs 1 World Trade Center in New York, will have a hearing on Feb. 17.

FBI agents tracked Durst to a New Orleans hotel on the eve of the finale of “The Jinx.” Durst was formally arrested early on the day of the broadcast, before viewers saw him in a washroom, still wearing a live microphone and muttering, “There it is. You’re caught! What the hell did I do? Killed them all, of course.”
