Slain Canadian soldier heads home on "Highway of Heroes"

OTTAWA (Reuters) - The body of a Canadian soldier shot dead while guarding the country's war memorial in Ottawa began the journey to his hometown on Friday, in a last ride along the nation's "Highway of Heroes." Police said a home-grown radical, Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, killed Corporal Nathan Cirillo, 24, on Wednesday before fleeing into the Parliament building where he was shot dead near where Prime Minister Stephen Harper was meeting with lawmakers. Mourners and supporters lined portions of a roughly 500-kilometer (310-mile) route along Lake Ontario where a black hearse accompanied by police vehicles was due to travel to the soldier's home in Hamilton, Ontario. Comrades from Cirillo's unit, the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders, dressed in ceremonial kilts, white boots and garters, carried his flag-draped coffin from an Ottawa funeral home to the hearse while bagpipes played #facebook #United States #India #Japan #Arabic #markets #United Kingdom #Latin America #Mexico

Canada to deliver spy agency bill next week, more to come

BRAMPTON Ontario/OTTAWA (Reuters) - Canada will introduce legislation next week to give more powers to its spy agency, a bill that will be largely unchanged from one drafted before this week's attack in Ottawa, a government source said on Friday. The government will put forward more measures later, the source said, and they will include wider powers to address security threats in the wake of the killing this week of two soldiers and the assault on Parliament on Wednesday #United States #India #Brazil #France #Arabic #Middle East #Russia #Latin America #Mexico
