14 year old Annaleise Carr became the youngest person to ever swim from Niagara on the Lake to Toronto across Lake Ontario.
The teenager completed the swim Sunday night as she splashed to the shore in Toronto after dark.
Carr set off from Niagara on the Lake Saturday evening and had to plow through waves as high as 1.5 metres at times. Carr, who is from the tiny community of Walsh in southern
Ontario, spent nearly 27 hours in the water and swimming a distance of 52 kilometres.
Part of the reason behind her swim was to raise money for Camp Trillium, a childhood cancer support centre. Her original goal was to raise $30-thousand, but she exceeded that last week, so then she set a goal of $50-thousand. More good news when that goal was blown out of the water by a single donor who pledged $10,000.
So far, Carr ...
A gray plastic bag of rotting flesh has been found in a wooded area in Scarborough's West Highland Creek, not far from where remains were found on Saturday.
Toronto Police admit they are not sure what the remains are but they have found it suspicious enough to call in the coroner to examine it.
The package was found by a Toronto Star photographer on Sunday.
Police have closed off the area near the Tam O'Shanter golf course and have set up a command post.
It is not clear whether either of these finds are linked to the severed body parts investigation in Mississauga.
Unionised GM workers in Oshawa have voted overwhelmingly in favour of using a strike as a bargaining tactic.
Members of CAW Local 222 voted 96.8% in favour of giving their bargaining committee a strike mandate.
"Members of our GM unit have sent a strong message to the company as a result of (Sunday's) strike vote meeting," said Local 222 president Chris Buckley in a news release.
"But it remains the CAW's position to bargain a fair settlement without a labour dispute."
The contract between General Motors and the Canadian Auto Workers expires Monday, September 17, 2012 at 11:59pm.
Police were spending another day searching a park in Mississauga on Sunday, where body parts have been discovered.
A right foot was found by hikers in Hewick Meadows Park on Wednesday and police found a severed head a day later.
On Friday, two hands were found in the Credit River, which flows through the park.
Peel Region Police have yet to confirm the body parts are from one person.
Investigators believe the remains are female because the foot had yellow painted toenails.
Peel Const. George Tudos said Sunday that the ground search was being aided by cadaver dogs and a dive team.
They're hopeful of finding evidence or the remaining body parts, but Tudos admits the search would take at least a few days to complete.
Meanwhile, police are also investigating after remains were found in Scarborough, but it has not been confirmed whether those remains are human.
Police are waiting ...
Reports in the Calgary Herald say mayor Rob Ford lost his way for a second time on his Western vacation.
Ford wandered into the Calgary Stampeders dressing room while taking in Saturday's game between the Stampeders and Argonauts.

Players weren't in the room at the time and stadium staff did eventually find Ford and point him in the right direction.
On Thursday, a driver spotted Ford looking turned-around as he made his way through downtown Edmonton.
The man was kind enough to give the mayor a lift.
