Paramedics dispatched to a house fire in west Toronto ended up on the Danforth because of a duplicate street name. Even worse, the fire may have resulted in the death of a 65-year old woman. This

Cheri DiNovo, the NDP candidate in the Parkdale-High Park by-election, is facing attacks from the Liberals for a sermon she made which criticized the media treatment of Karla Homolka.
“Every day we are subject to what I consider a kind of sadistic pornography. Now I know it sells papers but every day we pick up the Star or the National Post or the Globe and we see the picture of Karla Homolka on the front cover.”
