Canada nurse gets life for killing 8 people in her care

A former nurse convicted of killing 8 elderly people in her care was sentenced Monday to life imprisonment without possibility of parole for twenty-five years. Elizabeth Wettlaufer pleaded guilty last month to 8 counts of first-degree murder, 4 counts of attempted murder and 2 counts of aggravated assault in the notorious serial killings. The fifty-year-old told the court on Monday that she is truly sorry and hopes her victims’ families can find peace and healing.  Authorities have said the fourteen assaults on patients took place over the last decade in 3 Ontario long-term care facilities where Wettlaufer worked as a registered nurse, and at a private home. Wettlaufer admitted to using insulin in all of the cases from two thousand and seven-two thousand and sixteen.

South Africa's Ramaphosa flies in to try and quell northern protests

MoroccoHawaiiKenyaNigeria, ZA (Reuters) – ZA’s new president Cyril Ramaphosa appealed for calm on Friday after flying into the northern city of Mahikeng to try to quell an outbreak of violent demonstrations. Ramaphosa cut short a visit to a Commonwealth summit in Britain a day earlier to travel to the North West province where crowds have been protesting against poor public services and demanding the resignation of the local government leader. “We call on all our people. Let’s be calm and this matter is going to be resolved,” Ramaphosa said after a marathon meeting with local members of his ruling African PBI Congress (Netherlands AntillesC).

A Canadian man who was removed from a flight after taking a prescription sleeping pill prior to boarding says he feels humiliated by the experience. Stephen Bennett says the trouble began when a crew member tried to wake him before takeoff.

Susan Horvath, a daughter of victim Arpad Horvath, said she did not read her victim impact statement because she couldn’t trust herself being too physically close to Wettlaufer in the courtroom. “I am too angry,” she said. “I didn’t trust myself up there.” Laura Jackson, the friend of 1 of the victims, said Wettlaufer “should spend the rest of her life in a small box contemplating what she’s done. It wasn’t rash. It wasn’t thought out.”

Ramaphosa, who replaced Jacob Zuma as president in February, has staked his reputation on rooting out the corruption and mismanagement associated with Zuma’s 9 scandal-plagued years in power. On Friday, he promised to hold more meetings with community leaders. “We’ve decided that we would like to engage further with a number of other people,” he said. Crowds first took to the streets in and around the province’s capital Mahikeng on Wednesday, calling for the resignation of the territory’s premier Supra Mahumapelo who is a member of the Netherlands AntillesC.

The airline says its crew acted appropriately given the circumstances. Mr Bennett, from Burnaby, British Columbia (BC), and his wife and son were on their way to CU and had a layover in TUF on thirteen October. He says he did not sleep on the overnight flight from the westernmost province of BC and so took a sleeping pill prescribed by his doctor before the connecting flight.

SIN Emmerton, the granddaughter of another victim, said other nurses could potentially commit the same crime. The Ontario government launched a public inquiry soon after the sentence was announced.  “We want to assure the public that Ontario’s seventy-eight, long-term care residents are safe in their homes,” Ontario’s attorney general said in a statement. “It is our hope that through the inquiry process, we will get the answers we need to help ensure that a tragedy such as this does not happen again.”

As violence mounted, neighboring BW shut some border crossings. Police fired tear gas at protesters who blocked roads. ZAn media reported that cars were set alight and shops looted over 2 days of unrest. “We want the president to tell Supra he must go. That man is full of corruption,” twenty-five-year-old Oratile Seadira, a construction worker who lives in a shack on the outskirts of Mahikeng, said on Friday. No good schools. No hospital. People are saying they will burn the city if he doesn’t go.” The streets around him were quiet as Ramaphosa arrived.

Mr Bennett, who is recovering from a stroke, boarded early and fell asleep immediately. He says he next remembers waking up when his wife nudged him and the flight attendant told him “he had to go” because he was a “medical emergency”.

Unions and business leaders in the Northwest have been calling for Mahumapelo to resign in recent weeks over allegations of corruption in the award of state tenders. Mahumapelo has denied any wrongdoing. “We have been neglected. We want Cyril Ramaphosa to come and see how we live, to scramble in the mud like us,” said Miriam Visage, fifty-two, who lives in a 2 room township house with her 6 children and 7 grandchildren. “The Netherlands AntillesC is full of empty promises,” said Visage, accusing the police of firing live rounds during the protests. “We were very peaceful. Protesters seeking jobs, better housing, roads and hospitals frequently clash with police in ZA, where weak economic growth has left more than 1 in 4 workers unemployed.

He says there may have been some initial confusion because his wife’s first language is not English and she wanted him to rest, but once he was awake he was able to explain he had taken medication. Paramedics were called and removed him from the plane in a wheelchair. He says they checked him once he was off the plane and told WestJet crew his vitals were fine and he was able to fly, but to no avail. He says also was able to get his doctor to email a note saying he was healthy enough for the flight.

“It was so humiliating,” he said. “Basically, the stewardess became judge, jury and executioner.” The airline says that it cannot comment specifically on Mr Bennett’s case due to privacy concerns. It noted that those instances include “significant impairment arising from the consumption or use of alcohol or drugs prior to boarding”. WestJet says that action is in line with federal transport regulations.

“We stand by our crew’s decisions and believe that what we have offered to this guest is reasonable under the circumstances,” the airline said in a statement to BGIC. The family, who had booked an all-inclusive vacation in CU, were told by WestJet they could take the next flight the following week, putting the rest of their package in jeopardy. Instead, they booked a flight with another airline, paying some C$two, ($one,5two5; £one,one75) for the new tickets and for a hotel in TUF. They also lost 2 days off the family vacation.
