  • Greeks defy Europe with overwhelming referendum 'No'

    Thousands of jubilant Greeks waving flags and bursting fire crackers poured into Athens' central square as official figures showed 61 percent of Greeks had rejected a deal that would have imposed more austerity measures on an already ravaged economy. "You made a very brave choice," Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said in a televised address. "The mandate you gave me is not the mandate of a rupture with Europe, but a mandate to strengthen our negotiating position to seek a viable solution." The surprisingly strong victory by the 'No' camp defied opinion polls that had predicted a tight contest after a week of rising desperation as banks shut and cash machines ran dry.

    Donald Trump's recent comments about Mexican immigrants continue to haunt the Presidential hopeful, but now he's being thanked by America Ferrera. The actress penned an open letter to Trump on Huffington Post Latino Voices taking aim at his "ignorant and racist" remarks he made last month when he announced he was running for the Oval Office (Trump labeled Mexican immigrants as "rapists" and claimed they were "bringing crime" to the country). "You see, what you just did with your straight talk was send more Latino voters to the polls than several registration rallies combined! Thank you for that.

  • 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.

    At no point on Sunday was Tiger Woods a factor to win The Greenbrier Classic. Woods' Sunday effort -- his first bogey-free round on the PGA Tour since Round 1 of the 2013 Barclays -- was more reminiscent of the opening 66 on Thursday, where Woods appeared in almost complete control of his game. Despite the balky putter, Woods was encouraged by his ball-striking and shot-shaping.

    The Beer Store’s plan to expand its network of drive-thru locations in Ontario has sparked a conversation about whether being able to pick up booze without having to set foot in the store encourages drinking and driving. The Ontario chain plans to open a drive-thru store in Cambridge on Monday and another one in Peterborough on July 16, bringing the total in the province to six. “It’s just added convenience,” said Tom Wisener, The Beer Store’s director of retail operations, adding it's particularly convenient for seniors and people with disabilities.
