The Bill Kelly Show Podcast:
Terrorism charges have been filed against the suspect accused of killing four members of a London, Ont. family in what police have called a targeted attack on Muslims.
Nathaniel Veltman was already facing first-degree and attempted murder charges. New charges alleging the attack was an act of terrorism were unveiled Monday.
Federal prosecutor Sarah Shaikh told the court the deputy director of public prosecutions had approved charges last Wednesday alleging the killings constituted terrorist activity.
The attempted murder is also being prosecuted as terrorism, she said.
The development came after the RCMP’s Integrated National Security Enforcement Team was brought in to assist with the investigation into the June 6 vehicle ramming.

The outgoing Liberal MP for Hamilton-East Stoney Creek is asking for a parliamentary review of the federal government’s commitment to fund Hamilton's LRT.
In a statement, Bob Bratina suggests the 1.7 billion dollars may not be in compliance with the government program it's coming from.
He's also emphasizing his concern about the impact on city taxpayers tied to the operation and maintenance of the project.
City staff is expected to release a report tomorrow on the financial impact of the day-to-day operating and maintenance costs.

The Canadian Football League is going ahead with its 2021 season.
The league's board of governors has voted unanimously in favour of an amended collective bargaining agreement and starting the 2021 campaign on Aug. 5. The CFL did not play in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The CFL said it would release a 2021 schedule on Tuesday. The board approval means training camp will be scheduled to begin on July 10.
