Twice lucky lottery win
 
02:02
Robert Hong had a better chance of opening an oyster in his Kirkland Lake restaurant and finding a pearl than winning a lottery. But he did it. Twice. Win the lottery that is - not find a pearl. On Saturday, Hong discovered he had picked all six numbers in the Lotto 6/49 draw, giving him a $15 million jackpot. Just six months ago, he had a $340,000 win with a friend. "I really couldn't believe it," Hong said after picking up his prize at the Toronto prize office on Tuesday. "To win again after such a short amount of time, I had to look at the numbers a few times and sit back and see that those were actually the winning numbers." The odds of winning the top prize are about one in 14 million. The chances of winning twice are, well, astronomical. To compare, the website Webmath.com says the odds of a woman giving birth to quadruplets are 705,000 to one, and the odds of finding that pearl are a mere 12,000 to one. Hong has put in long hours operating his family-run, third-generation restaurant in the small Northern Ontario city. He says he'll still run the restaurant but will cut back on his hours.

Taser death details revealed
 
03:14
The Canada Border Services Agency is expected to face tough questions at a news conference Monday about the circumstances surrounding the death of a Polish immigrant at Vancouver International Airport last month. - Border Services officials are expected to give for the first time their account of an alleged communication breakdown on Oct. 14 in the hours before Robert Dziekanski's death. - Dziekanski died just minutes after he was given two Taser jolts and pinned down by four RCMP officers at the airport. - The 40-year-old, who did not speak fluent English, became agitated after languishing for hours in a secure customs area as his mother fruitlessly tried to get help finding him from the public side. - The incident, which was captured on video by a witness, has sparked fierce debate over the officers' actions and the use of Tasers by law enforcement agencies across the country. - Yet it is unclear where Dziekanski was during his 10 hours at the airport, what he was doing and why no translators or airport staff were on hand to assist him. - Walter Kosteskyj, a lawyer who represents Dziekanski's mother, Zofia Cisowski, told CBC News on Monday that after confirming Dziekanski's flight had arrived, a companion who had driven her to the airport was told by a CBSA official that there was no record of a Polish immigrant arriving that day. - "He was told that without breaching any confidence, there were no Polish immigrants there today and that they should go home, that he wasn't there," Kosteskyj said. - The companion said the conversation lasted four or five minutes and the border services official wasn't interested in checking Dziekanski's name, Kosteskyj added. - The exchange prompted Cisowski to return to her home in Kamloops, B.C., believing her son had missed his flight. - At least seven investigations, including a provincial inquiry and a House of Commons public safety committee investigation, have been called to probe Dziekanski's death or the use of Tasers since last month.

Police crackdown on telemarketers
 
02:18
The RCMP has arrested about 130 people after cracking down on a telemarketing scheme in Montreal Tuesday. The Mounties raided five locations in the Montreal area, including residential homes and a downtown office building on Belmont Street. The scheme allegedly bilked about 1,500 small and medium-sized businesses in Canada, the United States and Europe, who were contacted by telemarketers posing as representatives of a government agency. The companies were charged as much as 10 times the retail value of office equipment including first aid kits, and were threatened when they didn't settle their bills, RCMP spokeswoman Elaine Laverge said. The products were sold "under pressure, and by using a lot of pressure," she said at a press conference in the city on Tuesday. The raids cap a two-year investigation triggered by complaints from affected businesses. Belmont Street is closed between Beaver Hall and University Street while police finish their raid. Union Street between Belmont and René-Levesque Boulevard is also closed for the time being, RCMP said. With files from the Canadian Press

Hockey captain found guilty
 
01:19
A jury has found former Toronto Maple Leafs captain Rob Ramage guilty of five charges stemming from a fatal auto collision in 2003, including impaired driving causing death. The jury of eight men and four women delivered the verdict Wednesday - its second day of deliberation - in a Newmarket, Ont., courtroom. "It is a tragedy for all involved, including my family," said Ramage, who will be sentenced Jan. 17. Ramage, 48, pleaded not guilty Sept. 11 to charges stemming from the fatal collision of Dec. 15, 2003, which claimed the life of former NHLer Keith Magnuson. Ramage underwent surgery for a dislocated hip after the rented Chrysler Intrepid he allegedly was driving veered into traffic and struck two vehicles near Vaughan, Ont., just north of Toronto. Magnuson, a passenger in the Intrepid, was pronounced dead at the scene. A former defenceman who spent his entire 11-year pro career with the Chicago Blackhawks, he was 56. Michelle Pacheco, whose SUV collided with Ramage's vehicle, suffered non-life-threatening injuries, while both occupants of a third car involved in the crash were uninjured. Ramage was charged with impaired driving causing death, impaired driving causing bodily harm, two counts of dangerous driving causing death and having a blood-alcohol level over the legal limit. A York police report alleged that Ramage and Magnuson were headed to a players' alumni meeting after attending the funeral of former NHL forward and union executive Keith McCreary, who died of cancer at age 63 on Dec. 9, 2003. The prosecution entered scientific evidence that showed Ramage had up to four times the legal blood-alcohol limit at the time of the crash, though none of the hundreds of people at the wake could verify he had a single drink. The defence argued the blood and urine tests were flawed, and any scent of beer came from cans that exploded in the accident. Ramage posted 139 goals and 564 points with 2,224 penalty minutes in 1,044 NHL games after being drafted first overall by the Colorado Rockies in 1979. The London, Ont., native played for the Rockies, St. Louis Blues, Calgary Flames, Minnesota North Stars, Tampa Bay Lightning, Montreal Canadiens, Philadelphia Flyers and Maple Leafs, which he captained from 1989-91.

Mountie death raises questions
 
02:42
It took some time before backup RCMP officers in a Northwest Territories town located a colleague who had been fatally shot while responding to a dispatch call, the RCMP acknowledged Tuesday. Const. Christopher Worden was killed Saturday morning in Hay River, a small town about 400 kilometres south of Yellowknife. The suspect, Emrah Bulatci, 23, of Alberta, is considered armed and dangerous and remains at large. Police received the call from an apartment building at 4:58 a.m. MT, and Worden, who was on call, was dispatched, police said. When police lost radio contact with him, two backup officers were sent and they found him in a wooded area suffering from gunshot wounds. "I can say that it did take time for the members to locate him when they arrived at the scene," RCMP Sgt. Larry O'Brien told CBC News on Tuesday in an interview from Hay River. The acknowledgement of a delay in finding Worden at the scene comes amid reports of residents in the community saying police did not arrive on the scene until almost an hour after gunshots were heard. "Some people were wondering whether he could have been saved had he been located more quickly," the CBC's Joslyn Oosenbrug reported Tuesday from Hay River. Bulatci, also known as Justin Elise, was last seen in Edmonton and just north of the Alberta capital, in St. Albert, police said Monday. He has blond hair, blue eyes, weighs about 135 pounds and is five feet tall. Police said he should be considered armed and dangerous and is "associated" with a grey 2004 Ford Expedition SUV with the Alberta licence plate LEC 010. O'Brien would not give further details on the investigation or the hunt for the suspect, who is believed to have fled the immediate area. "At this time, our investigators are still trying to locate the man we've charged," he said. "We've notified all police agencies in Western Canada advising of this individual and the warrant for his arrest." Drugs, violence have 'taken over' town: resident Meanwhile Tuesday, flags in Hay River flew at half-mast as community members laid bouquets on the front lawn of the RCMP detachment and in the area where Worden was found. People who live in the neighbourhood, which is known for its drug activity, told CBC News it has become increasingly violent in the last year. "It's the crack and the cocaine that's just taken over this town," said Mark Lawsen, who lives a few doors up from the apartment complex where Worden was investigating. "It's bad. There's people in and out of town. There's fights everywhere, baseball bats, homemade weapons." The RCMP's O'Brien said it was up to the individual officer's discretion whether to take backup on each case, except on certain calls such as domestic disputes, where it is strongly advised. The Hay River detachment has nine officers at its disposal. "As I can't speak to the nature of this complaint, I can't speak to Const. Worden's decision to go alone," he said. Worden, originally from Ottawa, joined the Mounties in 2002 and served most of his career in the Northwest Territories. He was one of nine officers of the Hay River detachment. Worden's wife, Jodie, mother of his infant daughter, spoke briefly Monday afternoon in Hay River, thanking Canadians for their support and requesting that she and her family be allowed now to grieve privately. "While we're still in shock and disbelief that he's no longer with us, it gives us strength to know that we have the support of a nation that recognizes and appreciates the ultimate sacrifice that Chris and other men and women have made for them," she said. She and relatives will head to Ottawa for the funeral, which will be held next Monday. Following the service, an RCMP memorial service for Worden will be held in Hay River.

Police shooting unlawful
 
02:25
The London Metropolitan Police broke health and safety laws in the fatal shooting of an innocent Brazilian electrician who was mistaken for a suicide bomber on a subway car, a jury in Britain ruled Thursday. Jean-Charles de Menezes, 27, was shot in the head seven times at Stockwell station on July 22, 2005, two weeks after near-simultaneous explosions during the morning rush hour killed 52 people and four suicide bombers in London, and just a day after a second suicide bombing attempt on the city's subway system. During the trial, prosecutor Clare Montgomery said the 'fundamental failures' of a police surveillance team led to the endangerment of the public and de Menezes's death. The jury said Thursday that the police force put the public at unnecessary risk, but ruled the commander of the surveillance unit, deputy assistant commissioner Cressida Dick, bore 'no personal culpability' in the incident, the BBC reported.
