  Parkland victim's father and Kavanaugh: The handshake that wasn't "I guess he did not want to deal with the reality of gun violence," Fred Guttenberg, father of slain Parkland student Jaime Guttenberg, wrote on Twitter."Just walked up to Judge Kavanaugh as morning session ended.

The Supreme Court of Canada says internet service providers can recover some of the costs of helping movie companies and other copyright holders find illegal downloaders.

In a decision today, the high court sides with Rogers Communications in ruling that the companies pursuing copyright violators should reimburse service providers a reasonable amount for the effort of looking up subscribers suspected of breaking the law.

The decision could end up saving Rogers and other internet providers many thousands of dollars, but the Supreme Court says the appropriate fees should be decided at a future Federal Court hearing.

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 case began when movie production firm Voltage Pictures asked Rogers for information about an alleged violator under provisions of the Copyright Act.

Rogers retrieved the information but agreed to disclose it only upon payment of a fee — $100 per hour of work plus HST.

Voltage Pictures hopes to eventually obtain the information of tens of thousands of suspected copyright infringers, and it argued the federal legislative regime precluded Rogers from charging a fee.
