OTTAWA, Ontario - A Canadian soldier standing guard at a war memorial in the country's capital was shot to death Wednesday, and heavy gunfire then erupted inside Parliament. One gunman was killed, and police said they were hunting for as many as two others. The attack immediately raised the specter of terrorism, with Canada already on alert because of a deadly hit-and-run earlier in the week against two Canadian soldiers by a man who police say was fired up with radical Muslim fervor.
TORONTO - Toronto Mayor Rob Ford apologized Sunday for being "hammered" in public and acknowledged the need to curb his drinking, but the mayor of Canada's largest city didn't address allegations of drug use and said he will remain in his job despite mounting pressure to resign."I'm going to weather this storm," Ford said.
