Two charges have been laid in connection with the April 26 Freedom Rally in Chatham. Chatham-Kent Bylaw Enforcement Officer Travis Maxwell told The Chatham Voice the event is still under investigation and other charges may in the works. “We’re still investigating,” Maxwell explained, adding names of those who have been ticketed have yet to be released. The municipality currently has seven bylaw officers working Monday to Friday during office hours, responding to complaints. COVID-19 issues are keeping bylaw officers “fairly busy,” Maxwell said. After hours and on weekends, the Chatham-Kent Police Service takes on the task. Municipal officials have stated publicly that they prefer taking an educational approach to deter people from breaking COVID-19 safety protocols, rather than issuing tickets. The Freedom Rally held in Tecumseh Park saw about 300 people in attendance. A number of leaders spoke from the podium including ‘No More Lockdown’ leaders MPP Randy Hillier and outspoken Aylmer pastor Henry Hildebrandt. Both have been charged in connection with similar rallies and religious gatherings in other jurisdictions. According to the Ministry of Solicitor General, violating the Reopening Ontario Act can result in a minimum $750 fine for individuals, and a maximum penalty of $100,000, plus the possibility of prosecution or jail time. The charges stemming from the gathering for the protest aren’t the only ones levied locally recently. For the second straight week, Chatham-Kent police were called to a church. This time, it was Old Colony Mennonite Church on Grove Mills Line in Dresden. A week ago, police charged someone at Old Colony Mennonite Church on Wheatley Road near Wheatley. This past Sunday, when the officer arrived to the church near Dresden, he observed 56 cars in the parking lot, with additional cars arriving. Upon completion of the church service, approximately 73 people were observed leaving the church with no one wearing masks. Last night, a member of the church, a 38-year-old Dresden man, was charged with failing to comply with a continued 7.0.2 order as per Ontario Regulation 364/20, of the Reopening Ontario Act, 2020, section 10(1).

BERLIN — British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said Thursday that he will use the Group of Seven meeting in June to “bend the ear” of fellow leaders to provide more financial help for poor countries to cope with climate change. Johnson said governments have six months to resolve numerous thorny diplomatic issues, including making good on a $100-billion climate fund that was meant to go to developing nations each year from 2020. “If we do the hard miles now, I hope that in November we can meet in person in Glasgow to hammer out the final details of what must be an era-defining outcome for our planet and for future generations,” Johnson told a virtual climate event organized by the German government. The upcoming G-7 meeting in Cornwall will be the first time the leaders of the world's biggest economies gather in person since before the pandemic. All G-7 countries have now set targets for reducing their greenhouse gas emissions to “net zero” by 2050 at the latest, with Germany this week saying it will bring its goal forward five years to 2045. Johnson said he hoped leaders would commit to “kickstart a green industrial revolution and build economies that can withstand whatever our changing climate throws at us.” “I also hope to secure a substantial pile of cash with which to help all countries to do that,” he said, adding that the $100 billion target was “long overdue” and rich countries need to go further still. Citing Britain's recent commitment to provide further aid to help poor countries leapfrog the dirty technologies that fueled both industrialization and global warming, Johnson said he would “not hesitate to bend the ear of my fellow leaders on the need for them to do the same” by the Glasgow summit, known as COP26. “If all that emerges from COP26 is more hot air, then we have absolutely no chance of keeping our planet cool,” he said. “It must be a summit of agreement, of action, of deeds, not words.” While recent pledges, including by the United States, have lowered the forecast for long-term warming, scientists say emissions need to be cut even faster to prevent a disastrous rise in global temperatures. Countries that signed up to the 2015 Paris accord agreed to cap the rise at 2 C (3.6 F), ideally no more than 1.5 C, by the year 2100. ___ Follow AP's climate coverage at https://apnews.com/Climate Frank Jordans, The Associated Press
A 25-year-old woman left for dead in the parking lot of a Mississauga townhouse complex called 911 to report she had been shot in the head and gave the dispatcher her boyfriend’s name, a Peel police officer told a Brampton murder trial Wednesday. Alicia Lewandowski had been shot at least three times, including once to the chest and another shot to the head, when she called police in the early hours on March 5, 2018, Peel Const. Nicholas Harris, the lead forensic identification officer on the case, testified. "A female had called 911 to advise that she had been shot in the head … She mentioned her boyfriend’s name, " Harris said, describing how he was briefed about what had happened in the visitor parking lot behind the Rathburn Road and Dixie Road townhouse that Lewandowski shared with her mother. Harris said investigating officers advised him witnesses had heard four shots and video captured a dark-coloured vehicle entering the complex at 4:58 a.m., before exiting four minutes later. Lewandowski was pronounced dead at the scene. Police found three live rounds on the pavement of the parking lot, along with a cellphone and evidence of broken glass. Her boyfriend, Joseph Chang, then 39, was arrested in Toronto about 14 hours later and charged with first-degree murder. He has pleaded not guilty. His judge-alone trial is being conducted via Zoom video conference before Ontario Superior Court Justice Jennifer Woollcombe. Chang has been in custody since his arrest. He appeared by video from a secured room. On Wednesday, Mira Lewandowski told the court that Chang and her daughter had a "volatile" relationship. "He had utter and complete control over her and he was insanely jealous, " she said during cross-examination from defence lawyer Randall Barrs. "He isolated her and he wanted her just to himself." Mira Lewandowski told courts how she tried unsuccessfully to keep her daughter away from Chang, and that by 2017, she had become increasingly concerned after it became clear that the couple were addicts who used drugs including cocaine and crack cocaine. Barrs said that by the time of Alicia’s killing, she and Chang "were both in bad shape as far as drug addiction is concerned, " adding that the Humber College student, who was studying esthetics and spa management, wanted to be around people, including Chang, who had access to drugs. Her mother responded: "Her addiction was controlling her decisions, along with the fact that he was the person who could feed the addiction." She also testified that during a phone conversation, Alicia told her Chang had threatened to put a bullet in her head after she visited his Toronto apartment and he wouldn’t open the door. Alicia called the police over concern for Chang’s mental well-being at the time, her mother testified. A bizarre sequence transpired, including reports that Chang had flooded his apartment and started making suicidal remarks, leading Alicia to worry Chang might harm himself, her mother recalled. At this, Barrs suggested his client had deteriorated to the point where he had "lost touch with reality."
