Beer used as booster seat

PERTH COUNTY, Ont.—Provincial police say a man has been charged after he used a case of beer as a substitute for a booster seat for a two-year-old.

OPP say they stopped a sedan on a road in the town of Atwood, Ont., around 2:30 a.m. on Tuesday.

They say officers observed the toddler seated on a 30-can case of beer.

Legion bans hate groups

The Royal Canadian Legion says its leaders have approved a new policy that prohibits its branches from affiliating with groups that promote hatred.

Last month, the legion's Dominion Command said it would take action to prevent a repeat of an incident where the anti-immigration group Soldiers of Odin held an Easter dinner at a legion in Grande Prairie, Alta.
