Ontario man granted right to doctor-assisted death

A terminally ill Ontario grandfather is grateful that a court has given him the green light to have doctors help him die.

But he says it's unfortunate he's had to spend the last months of his life fighting to die on his own terms.

On Thursday, an Ontario Superior Court justice agreed to allow the unidentified 81-year-old have doctors help him die. That will likely take place this weekend, his lawyers said.

Christian group banned for singing about Jesus delivers 40,000+ petition to Toronto mayor: vows to keep fighting

The Christian organization that the City of Toronto banned from holding a musical festival in a downtown public square joined LifeSiteNews on Monday in delivering a 30,000-name petition to Mayor John Tory's office.

Greek banks prepare plan to raid deposits to avert collapse

Greek banks are preparing contingency plans for a possible "bail-in" of depositors amid fears the country is heading for financial collapse, bankers and businesspeople with knowledge of the measures said on Friday.

The plans, which call for a "haircut" of at least 30 per cent on deposits above 8,000 [euros], sketch out an increasingly likely scenario for at least one bank, the sources said.

A Greek bail-in could resemble the rescue plan agreed by Cyprus in 2013, when customers' funds were seized to shore up the banks, with a haircut imposed on uninsured deposits over 100,000 [euros].
