THE FEAR THAT EATS AT TEENS

It is only 8:15 a.m. on a sunny June morning, but already the line-up for the Paul Bernardo trial is snaking its way around the Toronto courthouse. About half of those in the crowd are women, and one group of five, in line since 6 a.m., have succumbed to fatigue and plopped themselves in a circle on the pavement.

Women can learn to take self-defence in stride

On average, a sexual assault is committed in Canada every 17 minutes. Ninety per cent of the victims are women and half of them are younger than 17. Those sobering statistics, along with horrifying, high-profile sex crimes like those committed against Leslie Mahaffy and Kristen French, have created a siege mentality among many women across Canada.

The powerhouse defector

There is nothing to suggest rebellion in Greg Rusedski’s polite how-yadoin’ manner; no hint of prima donna behavior from an athlete whose sport has bequeathed the world so many brats.

The theft of trust resonates for years

For four years, from the time I was 15, I was stalked by a man whom I, and many of my friends and family in Brantford, Ont., came to know simply as “Creepy.” He had seen my photo in The Brantford Expositor when, as an aspiring model, I had appeared in a local fashion show.

THE CUBA CONNECTION

For 25 years, renegade financier Robert Lee (Bobby) Vesco has bilked investors, bedevilled governments and eluded lawenforcement authorities on both sides of the Atlantic and from Canada to the Caribbean. For almost half of that time, since September, 1982, the Detroit autoworker’s son and high-school dropout has lived a life of luxury and reputed influence in Fidel Castro’s impoverished Cuba—until now.

Three wishes for a Canada once loved

The road turns. I can’t see where it goes, but one can only hope that the suicidal march into left-wing bogs has ended.
