  • New Ontario child care rules come into effect today

    Heidi Higgins thinks of the children she looks after every day as her "extended family" but to comply with revamped rules for Ontario child care she had to tell one little boy's parents to find a different caregiver. Higgins, the co-founder of the Coalition of Independent Childcare Providers of Ontario, runs an unlicensed daycare at her home in south Ottawa. The new law, which takes effect Monday, limits unlicensed home daycare providers to look after a maximum of two children under the age of two, where previously they could care for five children of any age.

  • Pregnant Manitoba child not reported to welfare agency

    The director of a Winnipeg-based child welfare agency says it did not get involved in the protection of a girl who was repeatedly raped by her stepfather, and was sent home twice to recover from abortions, because it wasn't notified of the case. "It should have been an automatic referral, so I am shocked that we did not receive this one," said Sandie Stoker, executive director of the Child and Family All Nations Emergency Coordinated Response Network (ANCR). ANCR said Friday after the sentencing hearing for the stepfather that the case only came to its attention after he was later arrested for an unrelated attack on the girl's best friend and her mother.

  • London, Ont., was world's 'serial killer capital': UWO prof

    Only 192 kilometres southwest of Toronto, the city became the "serial killer capital of the world" from 1959 to 1984, according to Michael Arntfield, a criminology professor at the University of Western Ontario. In his new book, Murder City: The Untold Story of Canada's Serial Killer Capital, Arntfield reveals the dark history of the Forest City. Arntfield, who also served as a London police officer for 15 years, analyzed 32 homicides, all the victims being women and children, over a 15-year period.  Some of those cases were solved, but most of the remaining homicides were likely the work of serial killers, the author contends.

  • No lemonade for you! Cops shut down Seinfeld’s family lemonade stand

    In a scenario fit for an episode of his classic sitcom, local police in East Hampton shut down a lemonade stand operated by Jerry Seinfeld, as peddling of any form in the area is strictly deemed illegal. The lemonade stand was set up last week for Seinfeld’s son Julian and his pals to not only have some harmless summer fun, but to raise money for Seinfeld’s wife Jessica’s charity Baby Buggy, the Huffington Post reports.
