  • Mike Duffy's 'unsolicited contacts' drew Enbridge warning to PMO

    Suspended Senator Mike Duffy's diary may show conversations between him and officials at Enbridge, but any talks were unsolicited, the company says — to the point it notified the Prime Minister's Office of the discussions. Duffy's detailed diary, which was made public as evidence in his trial on 31 charges of fraud, breach of trust and bribery, features repeated references to conversations with Enbridge, which in 2010 launched the federal regulatory process to build the Northern Gateway pipeline from Alberta through British Columbia in a bid to ship oil to Asia from Canada. Duffy has pleaded not guilty to all charges and his lawyer is raising questions about whether rules existed to prevent the kind of spending for which Duffy has been charged.

  • Women held captive for decade in Cleveland house recount chains, manipulation in new memoir

    When Amanda Berry's toddler daughter had night terrors and started screaming and running around the room, Berry couldn't always get to her — because she was chained and couldn't move that far.

"We are free, we love life," the women said in the note to readers at the beginning of "Hope: A Memoir of Survival in Cleveland," which they wrote with journalists Mary Jordan and Kevin Sullivan.

    A U.S. border officer who commits an on-duty crime in Canada would generally face justice in an American court under a new binational agreement. The arrangement will expand the American customs presence on Canadian soil and is expected to see Canada establish similar operations in the United States. In the rail mode, for example, this could mean preclearing passengers and their luggage in Canada before travellers leave the train station, thereby avoiding a stop at the Canada-U.S. border, the federal government says.
