Preview Clip

An organizer of a cheerleading competition says many parents are pleased the event is going ahead at West Edmonton Mall next weekend, despite a threat that was made against the mall in an online video. Denise Fisher says some of the parents have told her they don't want to let fear take away from the type of freedom Canadians enjoy. (Fisher says a dozen teams have pulled out of the event. The video purportedly came from the Al-Shabab group and urges Muslims to attack malls including the Mall of America in Minneapolis and the West Edmonton Mall.)
