A suspect in the deaths of three women and the subject of an hours-long manhunt in eastern Ontario is expected to appear in a Pembroke court today.

Police haven’t released his name pending charges, but say the 57-year-old was arrested yesterday — five hours after a shooting in the small town of Wilno triggered a manhunt that stretched as far east as Ottawa, more than 100 kilometres away.

Wilno residents describe a terrifying few hours, during which many schools and businesses were placed under lockdown.

After a man’s arrest near Ottawa, police revealed he was being investigated in the deaths of three women whose bodies were found in separate homes in Wilno and two other nearby towns. (4)

Derek Saretzky faces two counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of Hailey Dunbar-Blanchette and her father Terry Blanchette in Blairmore.

Saretzky also faces one count of committing an indignity to a body in the death of the little girl, whose remains were found after her abduction from home triggered a two-day Amber Alert across Western Canada and Montana. (4)

Pope Francis and U-S President Barack Obama meet at the White House today to explore areas of common cause, such as climate change, income inequality and social justice.

The two differ sharply on other issues, such as abortion and same-sex marriage.

As he prepares to address the U-S Congress tomorrow, Pope Francis is already fending off conservative criticism.

But he said on the plane from Cuba yesterday that he’s never made pronouncements beyond “the social doctrine of the church.” (4)


After months of searching, the B-C government admits it has lost an unencrypted hard drive that holds 3.4-million records from students and teachers in B-C and the Yukon.

The massive data breach of education files date back almost 30 years.

B-C’s technology minister has ordered a review of government information management.

He says there is no indication that data from the lost hard drive has been accessed or used, and notes it doesn’t contain social insurance numbers, financial or banking information. (4)


The Manitoba legislature grounds are dotted with teepees, as demonstrators protest what they call the province’s “broken” child welfare system.

First Nations children’s advocate Cora Morgan says she and five other women will go without food or water until tomorrow to push the issue.

On average, Manitoba social workers seize a newborn a day over alleged safety concerns, and Morgan claims the province is forcing aboriginal parents to prove they are fit. (4)


A U-S federal judge in L-A says a music publishing company that’s been collecting royalties on the song “Happy Birthday To You” doesn’t hold a valid copyright to the lyrics.

The judge says the song’s original copyright only covered specific piano arrangements.

The song’s basic tune has long been in the public domain, but a lawsuit says copyright holder Warner-Chappell has collected fees from thousands of people who’ve used the song over the years. (4)
