Ex-Mountie investigating 'Surrey six' murders pleads guilty to obstruction

Ex-Mountie investigating 'Surrey six' murders pleads guilty to obstructionVANCOUVER — A lead investigator in a gang-related mass murder in British Columbia has been handed a conditional sentence to be served in the community after he pleaded guilty to breach of trust and obstruction of justice. Derek Brassington was sentenced to two years less a day and ordered to pay $10,000 in restitution in B.C. Supreme Court on Friday, eliminating the need for a 10-week trial. The indictment says Brassington breached the standard demanded of him in managing a witness and obstructed justice by compromising the integrity and safety of a witness. The former RCMP sergeant played a key investigative role in the 2007 slaying of six people, including two innocent bystanders, in a Surrey highrise. B.C. Supreme Court Justice Arne Silverman imposed 14 conditions including house arrest from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. except for parenting, employment and medical reasons. Silverman accepted joint sentencing submissions from special prosecutor Chris Considine and defence lawyer Ian Donaldson but a sweeping ban prevents the publication of any details. Brassington was charged in 2011 and resigned from the force 2013. The Canadian Press

Trudeau acknowledges global turmoil is making Canadians anxious, fearful

Trudeau acknowledges global turmoil is making Canadians anxious, fearfulJustin Trudeau acknowledged Friday that Canadians are anxious about the upheavals occurring around the globe — with Canada recently seeming to have become the world's favourite punching bag. The prime minister insisted the best way to allay those fears is to stick to his government's plan for improving the lot of middle-class Canadians. Indeed, international events obscured the upbeat economic message Trudeau had hoped would come out of a three-day cabinet retreat — in the midst of which tensions with China escalated and a Canadian mining executive was killed in Burkina Faso.
