1. Some do suspect people in the SaudiGov of financing ISIS/ISIL/Daesh.

Whether Baird will ever openly admit to being among those harbouring such suspicions is another matter.

2. One more argument for either Chow or Goldkind to be elected mayor of Toronto. (There's likely other candidates I'm unaware of.)

3. I got just enough of that joke...
