  • Greek referendum: Campaigns, neck and neck in polls, reach dramatic finale

    Greeks packed city squares for dueling rallies late into the night Friday, as polls showed a dead heat between the 'yes' and 'no' camps ahead of a bailout referendum Sunday that could be Greece's most important vote since it joined the European Union. It is a celebration to overcome fear and blackmail," Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras told a crowd of 25,000 in front of parliament, who were chanting "oxi, oxi" — "no, no." Tsipras angered Greece's creditors by calling the referendum and is urging Greeks to vote no. Rallies for both campaigns were also held in 10 other Greek cities Friday.

  • Paul Bernardo applies for day parole in Toronto; families of victims devastated

    Paul Bernardo has applied for day parole in Toronto, though lawyers say he has almost no chance of succeeding. The lawyer for the families of Bernardo's murder victims, 14-year-old Leslie Mahaffy and 15-year-old Kristen French, said Correctional Service Canada sent out a form letter to the families last week advising them of his application. It is Bernardo's right to apply for day parole three years before he is eligible for full parole on his life sentence, but this has left families of both girls devastated, even though they knew this day was coming, said their lawyer Tim Danson.
