      They do so at a time when former Nortel CEO Frank Dunn is asking for a $120-million settlement, and the company's last president, Mike Zafirovski wants $11 million from the Nortel Canada estate, according to a court monitor report from restructuring firm Ernst and Young.

          Democrats block confirmation votes for Sessions, Price and Mnuchin


          Democrats intensified their opposition to President Trump on Tuesday by further delaying the confirmation of several of his Cabinet nominees amid strong Republican objections.

          Hours after Trump fired acting attorney general Sally Yates for refusing to defend his executive order banning certain travelers and refugees, Democrats blocked a committee from approving the president’s choice for attorney general. Amid concerns with information provided by his picks to lead the departments of Health and Human Services and Treasury, Democrats did not show up at another Senate committee at all.

            Supreme Court of Canada to announce if it will hear Shafia appeal

            Canada's highest court is expected to announce today whether it will hear the case of a man convicted of murdering his three sisters and another woman.

            Hamed Shafia has asked the Supreme Court of Canada for leave to appeal, arguing new evidence showing he was a youth at the time of the deaths should not have been dismissed.

            Shafia and his parents were found guilty in January 2012 of four counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of his teenage sisters and his father's first wife in a polygamous marriage.

            The four bodies were found in the Montreal family's car at the bottom of the Rideau Canal in Kingston, Ont., in June 2009.

              Crown closes case against accused killer with death timeline

              The Crown has wrapped its case against Ian Bush — accused of killing a retired tax judge, the judge's wife and their friend and neighbour — by presenting a sequence of events leading up to the discovery of their bodies, as well as an excerpt of a crime novel Bush appears to have been writing.

              Ottawa police Sgt. Dan Brennan took over the cold case in 2011 with a team tasked with having a fresh look at the file.

              Under examination-in-chief Thursday by Crown attorney Tim Wightman, Brennan took the jury through what happened on June 29, 2007, the day investigators allege Alban Garon, Raymonde Garon and Marie-Claire Beniskos were killed.

                'It's been hell': Ottawa family on edge as appeal begins in stayed murder case


                The hope of justice for their loved ones can help many families cope during endless court days waiting for a conviction, but that hope was taken away from Nicole and Amine Nayel in an instant last November.

                Their son, Fouad Nayel, a construction worker who grew up in Ottawa's suburb of Barrhaven, was shot and killed in June 2012. The 28-year-old's remains were found five months later after a desperate search by his family and network of friends.

                  'It never goes away': Parents describe unceasing heartache as murder trial begins

                  The parents of homicide victim Amanda Trottier say the three-and-a-half years since their daughter's death have been a "nightmare" that only gets worse the longer the case against her accused killers drags on.

                  Claude Trottier and Victoria Lebrasseur will walk into a Gatineau courtroom Tuesday armed with an emotional letter they hope to read. It describes in painful detail their struggles since their daughter and her boyfriend, Travis Votour, were found dead on the main floor of Votour's home in Aylmer in January 2014.

                  Trottier's daughter, just three at the time of the killings, was playing alone upstairs and was unharmed.
