A 24-year-old man is in custody after making a series of ISIS-related threats on a Canadian university campus. Police and campus security at the University of Saskatchewan arrested him on campus earlier today.
Police finally arrested the man after looking for him since last night, when they were alerted about the threatening posts on Facebook.
In a series of Facebook posts, the man who claims to be an engineering student at the University of Saskatchewan called on "ISIS warriors" to "bring an end to oppression against women." He also said there would be public executions of "Saudi leaders" on the campus and that the people had "God's permission to do almost anything," like murdering and rioting.
He was calling the "Saudi leaders" to the Bowl, a part of the U Sask campus by 3 pm today, and said he had the authority to begin killing people if they weren't there.
Police have not released many details about the man, but have said that his vehicle was found near the campus. They later found him at U Sask and were able to arrest him with no incidents.
Police have not confirmed what charges he is facing, but in a similar incident over the summer, Manitoba women were charged with inciting hate after they posted on Facebook about shooting Indigenous people. The U Sask student could be facing similar charges.

Remember the good ol' days of dinner and a movie?
Granted, we can still do both those things without leaving the house, but it's just not as special since we've been cooking our own meals and watching movies on the couch literally every day since COVID hit.

Details: There's a surprising amount of games you can play as a pair. You can go for the classics like Monopoly, Scrabble or Bananagram, or play something a little more challenging like Catan (yes, there is a two-player version of the popular game!). Indigo has a ton of board games you can buy in store or online.
Details: How about you two pour a drink, put on some tunes and get your Rob Ross on? Painting's a great way to decompress after a hectic work week. We found a kit on Amazon that comes with two canvases, two sets of paint and brushes and one wooden easel.
Details: Dust off that old record player and enjoy all the crackles and pops that comes with listening to vinyl. The quality of sound is incomparable to listening to an album on Spotify via iPhone. You can hit up Sonic Boom or even Urban Outfitters to find the latest record releases.
Details: Doing the dishes is so not romantic. Take a hard pass and instead, order in some delicious Thai food or Italian food through DoorDash. Delivery fees are usually $5.99. Don't forget to order dessert!
Details: If the weather's looking good, take your DoorDash delivery or self-prepared meal outside and enjoy it while the sun's still shining. We found this really cute picnic basket on Etsy that's $63—way cheaper than the baskets you can find at Indigo or Wayfair.
