  Norman trial set to run into 2019 election OTTAWA - The politically charged breach of trust trial of one of the military's most senior leaders is set to run through most of the next federal election. Vice-Admiral Mark Norman and his high-profile lawyer Marie Henein were allowed to schedule the seven- to eight-week criminal trial to start next August, even though a judge told them an earlier date was possible. Opposition Conservatives and Norman's supporters, which include numerous former military personnel, have accused the Liberal government of political interference in the case, with some suggesting Norman has been charged unfairly.

Officer testifies at sailors' sex assault trial

  Officer testifies at sailors' sex assault trial HALIFAX - The trial for two British sailors accused of sexually assaulting a woman at a Halifax-area military base is hearing today from a military police officer who investigated the case. Sgt. Tyler Bruce-Hayes, the Crown's first witness, told Nova Scotia Supreme Court that the complainant appeared upset and was crying when he first saw her at a Halifax hospital in the early hours of April 11, 2015. Bruce-Hayes says he had received a call hours earlier that a sexual assault had occurred at CFB Shearwater, a military base just outside Halifax.

The 13-year-old teen was found dead in Burnaby's Central Park, not far from her home, just hours after her parents reported her missing on July 18, 2017.

When police announced Ali's arrest on Monday, they said he had come to their attention just two weeks earlier, following an intense, year-long investigation described as the largest in the 15-year history of the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team.

Police say Ali is a Syrian national who moved to Burnaby as a refugee 17 months ago and is an employed, permanent resident of Canada with no prior criminal history.

Investigators have not said how Shen died or offered a motive for her death, and none of the allegations in the case have been tested in court.
