  • Fairview Pointe-Claire mall bathroom hotspot for sexual encounters

MONTREAL — When Matthew Tod wandered through the Fairview Pointe-Claire shopping mall on the way home from his grandmother’s house, he didn’t think making a quick stop at the Sears bathroom would become such a terrifying experience.

“[A man] came close to my bathroom stall and then started to look into my bathroom stall. So, at that moment I froze,” he said.

“I didn’t know what to do.”

Tod never expected what happened next.

“From my stall, he went into the next stall and put his hand over and that’s when he took a picture with his phone,” he said.

Feeling scared and threatened, the 17-year-old says he quickly sought out store security.

“His answer to me was ‘don’t call the police, we’ll deal with it, there’s no point to call the police,’” said Tod.

“When I told him that I wanted to call the police he said ‘well, that’s the dumbest thing on earth to do.’”

Global News spoke to the security at Sears.

However, we were told that their protocol is not public information and they denied our request for an interview.

Tod said he couldn’t understand how something like this could happen, until he saw some suspicious writing on the bathroom walls.

After his experience, Tod says he second guesses the suspicious writing on the bathroom walls.

“It was really hard to see, you can’t see unless you really pay attention,” he said.

“There was solicitation writing on the wall and I figure that something could maybe be going on in that bathroom.”

Tod’s discovery prompted him to file a police report, even though he said Sears security had told him not to.

“Police officers received a call from a 911 concerning a suspicious behaviour,” said Manuel Couture, a spokesperson for the Montreal police.

“The investigators are well aware of all the facts and they’re working on this event.”

Since Sears has its own security service, the Fairview mall said it has no power over what happens inside the department store.

Take Our Poll

“I don’t accept that,” shopper Pilar Espaillat told Global News.

“I have a 17-year-old boy, so that’s scary to hear that.”

“The fact that that’s happening is a little weird,” agreed Patrick Kloskowski, another shopper.

Police are reviewing security footage from the store and told Global News that they’re looking for a suspect.

As for Tod, he said he believes that something needs to be done fast to keep mall-goers safe.

Tone improving in Quebec pension talks – Montreal

Watch: Extended interview with union leader Marc Ranger 

MONTREAL — Pension talks between the Quebec government and municipal unions are progressing.

Municipal Affairs Minister Pierre Moreau met Tuesday morning with representatives from the Union Coalition for Free Negotiation for a meeting that lasted over an hour.

The two parties are discussing Bill 3, the provincial Liberal party’s controversial plan to change municipal pension plans.

The government estimates the pension plans are almost $4 billion in the red.

When the bill was first introduced at the National Assembly in June, union leader Marc Ranger told reporters he saw it as a declaration of war.

    Unions storm Montreal city hall in pension protest

  • Quebec Games targeted by anti-pension protest

Moreau said he can “adjust” and possibly wait until collective agreements in each city expire to impose his reform, the 50-50 sharing of past, present and future deficits.

Montreal’s collective agreement expires in 2017.

Ranger told Global News he is not comfortable with the term “adjustment.” He would like to see major changes to the bill. But he noted that Tuesday morning’s meeting with Moreau was “constructive.”

“I can say it went better than expected,” said Ranger.

“We had absolutely no expectations coming into this meeting. We weren’t there to be polite, we were there to talk about a serious issue, so the discussions were very straightforward, and we’re not at a public commission, so I think that the discussions were honest.”

Unions are still planning to hold a big demonstration on September 20.

They intend however to respect Quebec’s Essential Services Act, which limits police and firefighters’ right to protest.

Bed bug battle at Saskatoon apartment complex – Saskatoon

Watch above: Bed bug infestation forces woman from Saskatoon apartment

SASKATOON – Bed bugs. Just the thought of them makes your skin crawl and according to local pest control experts, they’re becoming more prevalent.

“Bed bugs are simply a hitchhiker and you’ll pick up bed bugs in many, many different places,” said Murray Davison, branch manager for Poulin’s Professional Pest Control Services.

  • Experts say this could be one of the worst summers for bed bugs

“They’re making a come-back because of international travel,you know lots of people traveling to different destinations around the world and they’re just bringing them back.”

Surviving up to a year without a blood meal, bed bugs can live in walls and transfer in between apartments.

“They’re quite happy to live in the top third of your bed, in your headboard, in your night stand that kinda stuff and as long as there’s a blood meal there every night, you know you’re sleeping in there and they’ll come and feed on you.” explained Davison.

Serina McKeen, a young mother of one, says she’s packing up after getting fed-up with a bug infestation in her apartment complex on Avenue O South.

“It’s not a safe place for my kid.”

She and her two-year-old son now share an air mattress at their new apartment after McKeen said she’s had to either toss or leave behind hundreds of dollars worth of her belongings.

“We were told not to bring our furniture because they don’t want the problem over at my new house and I’m having an inspection next Monday to see if I brought bugs,” said McKeen.

Struggling to pay the bills, McKeen says she has no idea when she’ll be able to replace her furniture including her son’s crib.

“It makes me feel like a crappy parent that I can’t afford to go get my son a brand new bed which he deserves and I’m suppose to be his provider and I can’t even afford it right now.”

Two floors up in the same apartment complex, James Smith says the infestation in his apartment is so bad a good night’s rest is hard to come by.

“She gets up in the middle of the night, my wife and check two or three times and surprisingly enough we find one or two a night,” said Smith

“I get up with her, she gets up, baby’s up, we’re checking all around and just not feeling comfortable going back to sleep.”

Tenants say they’ve filed complaints with the company but the building hasn’t been professionally treated since the spring.

Avenue Living, the property management for Angela Dawn Apartments, says otherwise.

In statement to Global News, Avenue Living said “125 Avenue O south has been treated several times by both third party pest control providers and staff over the last year. Most recently in late July, 2014…” The full statement is below.

“A lot of the times we go in to treat and it’s just not a very thorough job in term of prep work and a lot of times you’ll just get them back,” said Davison.

Avenue Living says it provides a notice to it’s tenants when pest control will be happening and details on how to prepare the unit then it’s up to the tenant to follow through to ensure the treatment is effective.

U.S. judge convicts ex-nurse in Canadian’s suicide – National

MINNEAPOLIS – A former Minnesota nurse who admitted going online and encouraging people to kill themselves was convicted Tuesday of assisting the suicide of an English man and attempting to assist in the suicide of a Canadian woman.

The convictions follow a legal battle that spanned more than four years and that led to the reversal of part of a Minnesota state law that outlaws the practice.

Story continues below

HangZhou Night Net

Rice County District Judge Thomas Neuville ruled that the state proved that William Melchert-Dinkel, 52, assisted in the suicide of Mark Drybrough, 32, of Coventry, England.

He said the state failed to prove Melchert-Dinkel ‘s assistance was a direct cause of the suicide of Nadia Kajouji, 18, of Brampton, Ont., but found him guilty on a lesser charge of attempting to help her take her life.

READ MORE: Government to argue ‘absolute prohibition’ on assisted suicide in Canada

Melechert-Dinkel’s attorney, Terry Watkins, and the prosecutor, Rice County Attorney Paul Beaumaster, did not immediately return calls seeking comment on the verdict.

Neuville scheduled a sentencing hearing for Oct. 15. The same judge had also convicted Melchert-Dinkel in 2011 of encouraging the two suicides but put his 360-day jail sentence on hold pending appeals.

“The Defendant did not physically assist either Drybrough or Kajouji in taking their own life,” the judge wrote in a ruling dated Monday but not released until Tuesday. “However, there is significant evidence that the Defendant assisted Drybrough, and attempted to assist Kajouji, commit suicide by providing them with specific instructions and methodology for completing the suicide.”

Kajouji jumped into a frozen river in 2008. She was a student at Carleton University in Ottawa at the time. Drybrough hanged himself in 2005.

In his ruling, Neuville said Melchert-Dinkel provided both Drybrough and Kajouji with detailed information about how to hang themselves, and that Drybrough followed his instructions. However, he noted that while the defendant gave Kajouji detailed and specific instructions about hanging, she did not follow them and chose another method. So the judge said Melchert-Dinkel was guilty only of attempting to assist her suicide.

The Minnesota Supreme Court reversed Melchert-Dinkel ‘s original conviction in March, saying part of a state law that made it illegal to “advise” or “encourage” suicides was an unconstitutionally broad restriction on free speech. However, the justices upheld a part of the law that makes it a crime to “assist” in someone’s suicide. The ruling said speech alone can be used to assist or enable a suicide if it is narrowly targeted to one person and provides that person with what is needed to carry out the act.

READ MORE: Widow of Dr. Donald Low lends voice to lift ban on assisted-suicide

The Supreme Court sent the case back to the lower court for further proceedings because the judge did not rule at the time on whether Melchert-Dinkel actually assisted in the two suicides.

Evidence in the case showed Melchert-Dinkel was obsessed with suicide and sought out depressed people online. He posed as a suicidal female nurse, feigning compassion and offering step-by-step instructions on how they could kill themselves. He acknowledged participating in online chats about suicide with up to 20 people and entering into fake suicide pacts with about 10, five of whom he believed killed themselves.

At a hearing last month, Assistant Rice County Attorney Terence Swihart said Melchert-Dinkel provided Kajouji and Drybrough with specific information on methods for killing themselves, going beyond merely expressing opinions.

But defence attorney Watkins said there was no evidence to prove that Melchert-Dinkel’s advice led directly to their deaths.

Cherryvale’s 87-year-old covered bridge being disassembled – New Brunswick

CHERRYVALE, N.B. – Debris from the Cherryvale covered bridge is being be removed from the Canaan River this week, after flooding and ice broke the bridge free in the spring.

Flooding in April washed the bridge 20 kms downstream, wedging it below a span of the Trans-Canada Highway. The bridge has sat there until now.

Crews are disassembling the bridge and throwing most of it away.

“Mother Nature is cruel and when you get older, she’s crueler,” said foreman Gordon Mitten.

“It was built in 1927 and ice took it out.”

But a part of the bridge is being preserved. Crews managed to salvage a 40-foot portion of the historical structure which will be saved and stored by the province.

They may use the wood to built another structure someday. But there are no plans right now to replace the 165-foot piece of New Brunswick history.

One of New Brunswick’s 59 covered bridges.

Moncton’s Heritage and Culture Coordinator Lawren Campbell said it’s another heartbreaking loss for the province.

“They are part of the fabric of every corner of our province so little bits of our heritage are being lost every time we lose one of these bridges to fires or floods or what have you,” Campbell said.

Of the hundreds of bridges that once spanned rivers across the province – 59 are left standing.

The province says it recognizes the heritage and tourism value of covered bridges and can provide funding to municipal and non-profit groups to assist with preserving covered bridges.

But the Cherryvale bridge one is gone for good.

“I hope a day doesn’t come when all we are doing when we talk about the history of covered bridges is that we see pictures and photographs and memories,” said Campbell.

Piece by piece – crews dismantle and pluck the Cherryvale bridge from the Canaan River.

    Parkland Fuel Q3 earnings, revenues up sharply on contributions of acquisition

    Parkland Fuel reports second-quarter loss on higher income tax expenses

The sale also involves 37 commercial cardlock and three marine fuelling locations, as well as three terminals in B.C. and a wholesale business that includes aviation fuel sales to the Vancouver International Airport.

“I believe we’ve found an opportunity that is an ideal next step for Parkland on its growth trajectory,” said CEO Bob Espey on a conference call.

“I’m certainly excited for the road ahead for Parkland.”

He said the acquisition will support Parkland’s existing operations in B.C., leading to between $35 million and $50 million in annual operating cost savings within three years.

The purchase of the refinery gives Parkland access to the Trans Mountain oil pipeline from Alberta as well as a marine dock on Burrard Inlet that will open new opportunities in fuel imports and exports, Espey said.

Parkland plans to issue 24 million shares to raise $660 million to help finance the Chevron purchase, which is expected to close at the end of the year.

The Women’s World Cup landed at the center of controversy last month when international women’s soccer stars threatened legal action against FIFA and Soccer Canada, demanding the World Cup be played on natural grass rather than artificial turf.

Many of the Canadian venues, including BC Place, have artificial turf.

The women say FIFA would never allow men to play on artificial turf and having the women’s World Cup on a second class surface amounts to gender discrimination.

Forty athletes have sent a letter, claiming it is gender discrimination because they are being forced to play on a substandard and widely-held inferior surface.

Hollywood actor Tom Hanks even waded into the debate, saying female players deserve to play on real grass.

The 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup runs June 6 to July 5 in six Canadian cities, including Vancouver, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Ottawa, Montréal and Moncton.

Yakimchuk, who was found guilty earlier this year of the first-degree murder of Hana and is serving two life sentences for that murder and another in Alberta, refused to testify.

On Tuesday, the Judge Richard Danyliuk told Yakimchuk “considering your two first-degree murder sentences, the consequences of your contempt may not seem daunting to you.”

Danyliuk went on to say the “refusal of a witness to testify is an offence … as it affects citizens of Canada.”

He went on to point out that as a key witness, the refusal to testify has implications on the Crown’s case against the three other men accused of their involvement in Hana’s death.

Danyliuk handed Yakimchuk a two-and-a-half year sentence for contempt to be served concurrently to his two life sentences.

Yakimchuk testified during preliminary hearings in January 2013 and court is deciding whether those statements can be used as admissible evidence in the current trial.
