The Canadian military, no doubt feeling the heat as the lurid details of Russell Williams’ murders continue to ooze from a courtroom in Belleville, Ontario, reiterated that it’s powerless to strip Williams of his rich military pension and it cannot also prosecute him under military law. National Defence says (full statement after jump) it’s moving as quickly as possible to recover salary he’s been paid since his arrest and, cryptically, DND says, it will take “other measures to be determined.”
Police allege that a man who entertained children in the Kingston and Napanee areas in eastern Ontario for 20 years has been preying on “very young” victims. Provincial police have charged Randy Edward Miller, 40, with sexual assault and sexual interference in connection with the abuse of a young boy. Miller has worked as a clown at festivals, fairs and private parties and he has volunteered with Boy Scouts in Napanee.
