Chiefs seek new meeting with Harper

OTTAWA -- Top First Nations chiefs from across the country have set aside their differences for now and signed on to a request for yet another meeting with the prime minister -- all in an attempt to bring the protest by Attawapiskat Chief Theresa Spence to an end.

The Assembly of First Nations' executive agreed to the request in writing and sent a letter to Stephen Harper on the weekend, calling for a meeting as soon as Thursday -- a day by which National Chief Shawn Atleo could well be back on the job. Atleo took a sudden sick leave after his controversial meeting with Harper 10 days ago amidst a leadership crisis within the AFN.

Canadian opens fire in Philippine court

MANILA, Philippines -- A Canadian man facing charges of illegal possession of firearms opened fire in a Philippine courtroom today, killing two people and wounding a prosecutor before police fatally shot him, officials said.

The suspect, John H. Pope, appeared in court in central Cebu city, where he resided, to face the charges when he pulled out a gun and shot a lawyer and a physician who filed a case against him, police said. He then fired at a prosecutor in the hallway of the building before responding police fatally wounded him, said Cebu police chief Mariano Natuel.
