    Jurors convicted Abdulahi Hasan Sharif of five counts of attempted murder, along with aggravated assault against the officer, criminal flight causing bodily harm and dangerous driving. A woman and her boyfriend who were walking their dogs near the stadium said they heard a car rev its engine before it rammed into a barricade and the police officer. Const. Mike Chernyk testified that he was on traffic duty outside an Edmonton Eskimos game when he was struck by a car. He next remembered a man on top of him, stabbing him in the head with a knife. After attacking the officer, Sharif struck and injured four pedestrians as he drove a speeding U-Haul van through the city’s downtown. The jury didn’t hear about how Alberta’s Integrated National Security Enforcement Team initially investigated the attack as an act of terrorism. In the days that followed, police revealed that Sharif had been investigated two years earlier for espousing extremist views. An Islamic State flag had also been found in his car. Sharif was never charged with any terrorism offences. Sentencing arguments are to be heard on Dec. 12 and 13.

    If you mean, "an apology for the stress this prosecution has caused him and for any unintentional insult to his culture," you are probably right.

    Canada will probably apologize for him having to exist in a culture that isn't sufficiently welcoming.

    Where is our member with the picture of the large shredder, an industrial accident could befall him. Bury him with a batch of bacon. Don
