Adam Picard, 29, has been charged with first degree murder in connection with the death of Fouad Nayel.

December 13, 2012          6:00 AM ET

Former Canadian soldier Adam Picard, 29, appeared in court Thursday via video link on first degree murder charges in connection with the death of Fouad Nayel.

Police confirmed to CBC News that Picard is a former military man studying to be a chef at Le Cordon Bleu in Ottawa.

At the courthouse Thursday, Nayel’s mother described the time between her son’s disappearance last summer and today as “hellish”. She says she met Picard on two separate occasions.

“I have to be strong for my son. I’m going to fight for him to the end…Never will my life be the same,” Ms. Nayel said. She left the courtroom in tears after the appearance.

Her son Fouad Nayel, 28, was last seen June 17 in the Petawawa area. At the time his friend Adam Mounzer, told CBC News that Nayel was heading there to see a friend and he was in “good spirits.”

Family and friends became concerned after he didn’t show up for work and hadn’t contacted anyone.

Found in wooded area

The construction worker’s car was found in September. His body was discovered in November in a wooded area near Calabogie Ont., about 100 kilometres west of Ottawa.

Police said Picard was arrested at Tenth Line station while two search warrants were executed for two homes in Orleans – one where the suspect lived.

Police have said they were questioning multiple people in the investigation and that more charges could be laid against others.

Following an autopsy, Ontario Provincial Police and Ottawa Police determined foul play was involved in Nayel’s death.

Skye Buck, left, and Courtney Buck died suddenly in a car accident Sunday.

December 10, 2012           11:51 AM PT

Two Clearwater school teachers are presumed dead after their car apparently skidded off Highway 5 and plunged into the North Thompson River, north of Kamloops, on Sunday night.

Skye Tavis Buck, 30, and his pregnant wife Courtney Elizabeth Buck, 30, are both missing and presumed dead, say police.

The couple apparently lost control of their vehicle on the icy highway and skidded down a 30-metre embankment, striking a tree before disappearing into the river, say police.

A tribute to Skye Tavis Buck appears on the wall of Clearwater Secondary School.

Attempts to find the vehicle on Sunday night were unsuccessful and dive teams and search and rescue teams resumed the search on Monday, but the vehicle has not yet been located.

The pair taught at Clearwater Secondary School and at Raft River Elementary School. Courtney Buck was seven or eight months pregnant, members of the community told CBC News.

With a population of just 5,000, the teachers’ deaths have had a significant impact on the people of Clearwater, says Michael Bowden, principal at Raft River Elementary.

“The community is reeling and so is the staff and we’re just trying to make sure that our staff and our kids are taken care of here at the school,” said Bowden.

Bowden says a school district trauma team is at the elementary school to support the children and staff members.

Sean Garvey remembers his former basketball teammate, Skye Buck, as a generous friend.

“Skye was the best. I mean, in every sense of the word. What he stood for, who he was, how he treated everybody around him.”

The accident victims were both 30 years old, and expecting their first child.

“They were absolutely the perfect couple. The exact same people. So caring, so giving, so wonderful, just wonderful,” Garvey said.

Skye Tavis Buck

5 (e is the 5th letter of the alphabet) + 20 (T is the 20th letter of the alphabet) + 1 (a is the 1st letter of the alphabet) = 26

So the number 26 ruled his ages twenty-seven to fifty-four.

26 = Popular.  Photogenic.  Photos.  In the news.  Making headlines.

December 5, 2012            1:10 PM ET

The mother of three children found dead in a Drummondville, Que., home on Sunday has been charged with three counts of first-degree murder.

Sonia Blanchette, 33, whose three children were found dead on Sunday, appeared at the Drummondville courthouse at 4 p.m. ET today, where she was formally charged.

She will undergo an evaluation to determine if she’s fit to face criminal charges.

Her next court appearance is scheduled for Dec. 14.

Blanchette had been in the hospital with undisclosed wounds since Sunday. The reason for Blanchette’s hospitalization was not released, but Quebec provincial police Sgt. Daniel Thibaudeau said earlier this week that she was receiving care for her “mental and physical state.”

She spoke with officers early Wednesday afternoon.

Investigators are still trying to determine the circumstances surrounding the children’s deaths.

A funeral will be held on Saturday for Laurélie, 5, Loïc, 4, and Anaïs, 2.

Circumstances of deaths remain unclear

Earlier this week, the children’s father, Patrick Desautels, released a written statement asking for privacy for the family.

He said he loved his two daughters and son deeply, and will miss them for the rest of his life.

Police said they have spoken with Desautels but he is not considered a suspect.

Neighbours who spoke to CBC News on Sunday said the mother had lived alone with the three children in the second floor of a duplex for about two years.

CBC News has learned Blanchette lost custody of the children early in 2012 and had been awarded visiting rights once every two weeks, to be supervised by the children’s maternal grandmother.

Robin Walbridge, captain of HMS Bounty, is missing at sea.

October 30, 2012                 7:33 AM ET

U.S. Coast Guard officials say the missing captain of the Nova Scotia-built replica tall ship HMS Bounty could still be found alive because of a combination of warm water and air temperatures.

Robin Walbridge has been missing since Monday morning, when the crew of HMS Bounty decided to abandon ship in high seas brought on by Hurricane Sandy off the coast of North Carolina. Walbridge didn’t make it to a life-raft with the rest of his crew.

Petty Officer 1st Class Brandyn Hill, of the U.S. Coast Guard command centre in Portsmouth, Va., told CBC News the water temperature in the search area is 25 C and the air temperature is 19 C.

“It was reported to us that the captain of HMS Bounty was wearing a survival suit and this greatly increases his chances of survival in the water,” he said Tuesday.

“At this time the Coast Guard is actively searching to find the captain alive.”

The seas are 4.5 metres high and winds are about 68 kilometres per hour, said Hill.

A fixed-wing aircraft searched for Walbridge overnight, said Operations Specialist 1st Class Jacob Hyre with the U.S. Coast Guard in Portsmouth, Va.

“Through the night we had an HC-144 flying, the fixed-wing aircraft. This morning relieving it will be a C-130,” Hyre told CBC News Tuesday morning.

“We also have the cutter Elm and we also have the Coast Guard cutter Gallatin en route in the search.”

Hyre said the area of the search is about 2,500 square kilometres, close to where the crew decided to abandon ship after getting caught in 5.5-metre seas.

The Bounty sank several hours after the evacuation.

The 16 crew members of HMS Bounty tried to get to covered life-rafts but three of them were washed overboard in the process. One of the three people made it to the life-raft and was among the 14 people hoisted onto helicopters and taken to shore.

Captain was trying to get around Sandy, says wife

Walbridge, 63, and deckhand Claudene Christian, 42, were swept overboard and didn’t make it to the life-rafts.

Christian was located by an MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter on Monday evening and taken to Albemarle Hospital in Elizabeth City, N.C., where she was pronounced dead.

CBC News spoke to Claudene Christian’s mother on Monday morning as the rescue efforts began in the Atlantic Ocean. She said her daughter was “truly and genuinely happy” and had called before the journey “just in case she went down with the ship.”

Christian was a descendant of Fletcher Christian, the master’s mate who seized control of the original Bounty during Capt. William Bligh’s voyage in 1789.

That story was turned into a 1962 movie starring Marlon Brando —Mutiny on the Bounty — for which the replica was built and launched in Lunenburg, N.S., in 1960. The ship has also appeared in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest starring Johnny Depp.

The Facebook page of HMS Bounty called the ship sailing in Hurricane Sandy a “calculated decision” and said “a ship is safer at sea than in port.”

Claudia McCann, Walbridge’s wife, told CBC News her husband was trying to get around Hurricane Sandy en route to Florida.

Tracie Simonin, the president of the HMS Bounty Organization, told CBC News the organization is standing behind Walbridge’s decision to sail the vessel during the hurricane.

“We have the utmost confidence in Captain Walbridge and his abilities. He’s been with the ship for over 20 years and we all — as a crew, as an organization — trust his judgment and we stand behind the decision that was made,” she told CBC News on Tuesday.

“He loved [the Bounty] as if it were his own and he took care of it and kept it going the way that it was. We’re proud of all of our crew members.”

July 19, 2012                 5:16 AM ET

In preparation for his 2010 trial at a military tribunal at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, Omar Khadr was interviewed by psychiatrists, including Dr. Michael Welner, who testified for the prosecution, and Dr. Stephen Xenakis, who worked for but ultimately did not testify for the defence.

Welner spent seven to eight hours with Khadr over two days, while Xenakis says he has spent more than 200 hours with the inmate.

The two doctors came up with vastly divergent opinions of the 25-year-old Canadian, who in a deal with prosecution pleaded guilty to the murder of Sgt. 1st Class Christopher Speer. Khadr was captured following a battle in Afghanistan in 2002 and accused of throwing a hand grenade that killed Speer.

Khadr, who is currently imprisoned in Guantanamo Bay, agreed in a plea deal to a sentence of eight years, with no credit for time served, with the first year spent in U.S. custody. The U.S. has agreed to return Khadr to Canada.

Days ago, his lawyers filed a notice of application seeking to ask the Federal Court to review the federal government’s failure to ask the U.S. to transfer Khadr to Canadian custody.

It seems inevitable that Khadr will eventually return to Canada, where he could be eligible for parole. But who is the real Omar Khadr? Does the former al-Qaeda fighter pose any kind of threat to Canadians?

CBC News’s Mark Gollom interviewed Welner and Xenakis to ask about their different views on Khadr. Xenakis agreed to a phone interview and Welner responded by email. Below is an edited transcript of the interviews.

‘Not a threat by any stretch of the imagination’

Dr. Stephen Xenakis is a retired brigadier general and army medical corps officer with 28 years of active service. He is an adjunct clinical professor at the Uniformed Services University of Health Sciences and is board certified as a child/adolescent psychiatrist.

Dr. Stephen Xenakis is a retired brigadier general and army medical corps officer with 28 years of active service. He is an adjunct clinical professor at the Uniformed Services University of Health Sciences and is board certified as a child/adolescent psychiatrist.

CBC News: What is your impression of Khadr in terms of his personality, intelligence?

Xenakis: He’s a smart, extremely decent young man. Thoughtful, very sensitive and I will say, amazingly, there’s hardly an instinct of aggression or meanness in him at all. For a person who has had to endure what he has in these kinds of settings now for 10 plus years, he has an equanimity about him and a sensitivity and a thoughtfulness that is extraordinary.

CBC News: What’s the threat potential Khadr may pose to Canadians?

Xenakis: It is between zero and one per cent. It is as low as it can be. He is not a threat by any stretch of the imagination.

CBC News: You have also said before that he’s not a violent person and never was a violent person. Yet we have seen videos of him making bombs and he has admitted to killing Christopher Speer. How can you say he’s never been a threat and is currently not a threat?

Xenakis: The admission is an artifact of the court proceedings. It is not a statement of truth as you and I know it as laymen.

CBC News: Do you think he has ever done anything violent?

Xenakis: No, I do not believe that he has done anything violent. Remember that this was a firefight and that our forces attacked the compound that he was placed in by his father. He was an adolescent and we have never … talked about what would be reasonable self-defence and protection in the midst of a firefight like that in what we call the fog of battle.

I’m not saying that he never fired a weapon. I’m not saying that he never threw a grenade. I will say that no one knows.

CBC News: If he did throw a grenade, wouldn’t that suggest a tendency toward violence?

Xenakis: No, he’s an adolescent. That’s the second point here, and I think what the travesty is, what the error is. This was a 15-year-old kid sent there by his father and doing what his father asked him to do. We as civilized democratic countries recognize that different standards should be applied socially and legally to people who are adolescents.

CBC News: This gets into the whole “child soldier” debate. Dr. Welner said he doesn’t believe the child soldier label necessarily applies to Khadr, because in this case you have an individual who wasn’t kidnapped, he wasn’t drugged, he went on his own accord to fight.

Xenakis: Totally misses what the mental state is, capacity, reasoning, and the maturity of adolescence. What [Welner’s] doing is in fact characterizing this [then] teenage boy as if he’s a small adult and absolutely ignores everything we know about neuro development for young people, in particular teenagers.

He did what his father asked him. In that culture, you do not disagree or defy your father. The whole thing about the [bomb-making] videotaping, that was highly staged.

CBC News: You have also said you don’t think Khadr was ever a committed jihadist or radicalized, yet he grew up in a family where he is being trained and taught by a father who was a top al-Qaeda leader and a personal friend of Osama bin Laden. How could he not be influenced by that? And what’s your evidence he’s not a jihadist?

Xenakis: The evidence is he does not wish at any time nor does he want to consider talk about politics, doesn’t want to talk about military things. He absolutely wants to remove himself from anything that at all touches on those areas. He wants, if at all possible, to lead a a private, quiet life and be a health-care practitioner.

If you look at the family, there is room in there for people to make their own decisions and lead their own lives. This is not a criminal family or a Mafia family where you’re either in or out. The father was killed nine years ago.

[Khadr] is religious, he’s peace loving, he’s compassionate, he’s very compassionate.

CBC News: Many Canadians saw the videotapes of his interrogation by CSIS agents, where we see him crying, and he says he was tortured. Critics say he was playing to the camera and that in the so-called al-Qaeda handbook, you always claim to be tortured by your captors.

Xenakis: He was a boy there and he was 16 years old. There’s so much of what I’ve been able to reconstruct that was very childlike and adolescent that’s consistent with his immaturity at the time he was interviewed. I’m not sure he knew there was a camera.

I’ve not been able to confirm anything that would corroborate that they’re trained this way. I’ve seen these manuals, excerpts of these manuals — actually I’ve seen more the statements from the prosecution, from the government that that’s what’s going on, but I’ve not seen any evidence of it. And having done a lot of military training, I know how hard it is to train the average person, particularly under circumstances like this, and that’s unrealistic.

CBC NewsHow do you know you’re getting the clear picture of who he is and that he’s just not telling you what you want to hear?

Xenakis: There are patients that do that. But I don’t think many of them do, really. I think that’s a movie characterization that you get a flat-out psychopath that’s so skilful … that they can artfully sort of pull the wool over the psychiatrist’s eyes. Even when you do that, if you are a fairly experienced clinician, you kind of know what’s artificial that you’re hearing.

It is so important for him to be truthful, for him to be honest.

‘The ideal person to establish a beachhead for al-Qaeda in Canada’

Dr. Michael Welner is a New York-based forensic psychiatrist who has testified in a number of high-profile cases. He is an associate professor of psychiatry at NYU school of medicine and founder and chairman of the Forensic Panel.

Dr. Michael Welner is a New York-based forensic psychiatrist who has testified in a number of high-profile cases. He is an associate professor of psychiatry at NYU school of medicine and founder and chairman of the Forensic Panel.

CBC News: You interviewed Khadr for seven to eight hours. Is that enough time to get a good assessment of an individual?

Welner: The interview was conducted after I had devoted over 300 hours to the study of records ranging from interrogation notes to psychologist observations to medical records to classified documents to correspondence between Khadr and his family, and interviewing many others who had interacted with him in one way or another.

For the questions I was asked to resolve, my interview was adequate. I had the opportunity to ask every question that was appropriate for the occasion of our meeting. Omar answered some questions and obfuscated some others. And then I headed directly to an interview with five different guards who had interacted with him and supervisors of those guards, collecting their insights on how he related to his peers and they to him, and how he to them, as well as his relatedness to the guards and how that evolved over time.

CBC News: What was your impression of him, in terms of his personality, intelligence?

Welner: He is street smart and carries himself with the bearing of a confident person who knows others are interested in him. He is amiable and has a ready smile, and an easy comportment as long as he is not being confronted. He unfailingly portrayed himself as a victim with nothing of his own to regret or to renounce.

CBC News: What did he say during that time that made you believe he’s a danger?

Welner: His is the dilemma of Michael Corleone, who even when directed to one way of life may not ultimately turn away from family pressures to lead their ambitions for him, and his own visceral identification. Omar Khadr is undisputed al-Qaeda royalty and undeniably has yet to renounce it.

If not de-radicalized, and without a system of checks and balances that protects the pluralistic fabric of Canadian society, the Omar Khadr I evaluated will re-enter Canada ideally positioned and exploited by jihadist elements to legitimize and to promote Islamist aims, to inspire others to hostility to Canada and to avenge his claimed grievance. He is the ideal person to establish a beachhead for al-Qaeda in Canada, and will be pressured by the radicals who expect him to do so.

Mr. Khadr remains in closest identification with his family. That family has publicly characterized itself as an al-Qaeda family. He aims to return to that family and its inspiration when he returns to Canada and has specifically avoided repudiating jihadism in the slightest.

Omar Khadr will not be directly violent; his father was not, yet a leader in al-Qaeda. Mr. Khadr does not need to be in order to promote the aims his father advanced.

CBC News: You have said he’s devout and that he’s angry. Did he show instances of anger? Or was he angry like anyone would be angry over being examined by someone he might think isn’t sympathetic or has an agenda?

Welner: He was not angry over talking to me. The independence of my examination was clear to him and when he questioned it, I replied that the videotaping of my interview ensured complete transparency and would safeguard his interview from potential bias by holding me accountable.

He was angry that he was being incarcerated at all. He was angry when he could not control the interview by directing the discussion to topics of his preference. He was at his angriest when shown the videotape of his bomb-making activity and being asked about it. Experiences that do not make it possible for him to whitewash his killing and attempted killing make him particularly angry.

CBC News: What evidence was there that he’s still radicalized?

Khadr’s history of having killed an American soldier, his being the son of an al-Qaeda leader, his being in a family that fashions itself as an al-Qaeda family and therefore able to provide support from outside prison, his access to media who wish to decriminalize his jihadist violence and to legitimize his grievance, his access to devoted NGOs and pro bono Canadian and American legal talent no ordinary citizen could dream of, his having memorized the Qur’an, his fluency in English and Western social skills.

CBC NewsKhadr is considered by many to be a child soldier. He was brought up in a household where he was brainwashed and trained by his father about al-Qaeda. Why should someone who was only 15 at the time of the killing of Christopher Speer be held accountable for his actions?

Welner: The notion of brainwashing is part of the fiction created of Khadr — consider that his older brother completely rejected living religiously and militantly, yet was never rejected by the family.

Omar Khadr was sent to translate at an al-Qaeda compound where his father was known and no one would have exploited that child. On his own volition, Omar Khadr buoyantly assembled roadside bombs, planted them, and announced that he wanted to kill lots of Americans — as he videotaped the experience. His father was nowhere in sight and this initiative bore no resemblance to his purpose of acting as a translator there, as he had for his father’s terrorist business elsewhere.

When coalition forces converged only to disarm the compound, they gave the occupants 30 minutes to leave. A number of women and children did. Omar Khadr elected to stay, with colleagues who did not attack on impulse, but rather continued to wait while troops slowly gathered at the house to negotiate its disarmament. He therefore chose not only to be part of a group that launched an attack it did not have to, but one which deliberately waited for troops to converge so as to maximize coalition casualties.

A child soldier is ripped from his (often murdered) family and forced and habituated into violence. Omar Khadr enjoyed the martial arts for a number of years and voluntarily engaged in weapons training. He was hardly ripped from his father. The child soldier is drugged into a numbed detachment; Omar Khadr clearly was delighted by being part of the planned destruction. A child soldier is mortified by their actions; Omar Khadr felt glorified by what he did.

CBC News: Xenakis has said in previous interviews that anyone who has had personal contact with Khadr, including the Guantanamo Bay guards, would say, “This is a sensitive, caring, very considerate individual.”

Welner: Mr. Khadr was raised very well, contrary to the public misinformation that his father was a weirdo. His father was a dignified, educated man who ran an orphanage. He was also a terrorist who conducted al-Qaeda business using Omar Khadr as a translator from a very early age. One can have a sensitive and caring example set for him and learn how to carry social graces. Forensic examination does not afford the luxury of limiting an analysis to superficialities.

I would agree that Omar Khadr is very sensitive to his family and to his father’s legacy, and caring of his mother. That he happens to be closest to his family and possessed of such sensitivities is part of the problem.

Friends and family are mourning two young people who lost their lives in one of the bloodiest shootings in Toronto’s history.

Toronto police say that at least 100 people were attending a block party when shots rang out on Danzig Street at about 10:40 p.m. Monday.

Twenty-five people were hit when the shots were fired and two of those people died.

Police said Tuesday that Shyanne Charles, a 14-year-old Toronto girl who was set to start high school in the fall, was one of the two persons killed.

Friends told CBC News that Charles was a generous person, a good student and a role model.

Faith Black, who knew Charles since she was little, said she first heard about the girl’s death late Monday night. She described Charles as a good student who never got in any trouble.

“I’m still in denial, it hasn’t really hit me yet,” Black said. Charles, who played basketball at her school, was about to enter Grade 9 in September.

Kionna Jones, a former schoolmate of Charles, said she last spoke to her friend a few weeks ago. Jones said she is not very athletic, but that Charles would help her with basketball.

“She was always generous and joyful. She was always up and about. She would never put anybody down,” said Jones.

“She was really nice and good person to look up to.”

The parents of Jun Lin, Zhigui Du, left, and Diran Lin, speak to CBC News about the loss of their son, who was murdered in Montreal in May.

 

July 16, 2012              5:05 PM ET

The grieving mother of Chinese university student Jun Lin says her son viewed Canada as a place that was welcoming and safe for immigrants, but his brutal killing and dismemberment have left her with a starkly different view of the country.

“We still believe that most people here are very kind, but this heinous crime happened in Canada. It’s made me reconsider what kind of place this is,” Zhigui Du told the CBC’s Mark Kelley in an interview for The National on Monday.

Lin’s parents have been treated with “kindness” by the federal government, she said, and people here have shown the couple sympathy and support since they arrived in Montreal following their son’s grisly slaying in late May.

But his death, the brutal nature of which garnered headlines around the world, has shattered the idealistic view of Canada that Du’s 33-year-old son had impressed on her.

Before moving to Montreal from Beijing to study in a computer engineering program at Concordia University, Lin had done extensive research online about Canada.

His mother said he had the impression that it was “a peaceful place with great respect for multiculturalism,” and that there was no reason to worry about his safety.

Luka Rocco Magnotta, a small-time adult-film actor originally from the Toronto area who had cultivated a strange assortment of personae online, has pleaded not guilty in the case. He has been charged with five criminal offences including first-degree murder, harassing politicians and posting obscene material to the web.

Today, Du says, when she walks down the street sometimes she feels like “everyone looks like Magnotta. I live with so much fear.”

Anxiously awaiting trial

Magnotta, 29, was arrested in Berlin on June 4 following an international manhunt, and was extradited to Canada on board a military aircraft two weeks later. He made a brief court appearance in Montreal on June 21 where he requested a trial by judge and jury.

Lin’s parents flew to Montreal last month to collect their son’s remains and mourn his death, holding a private memorial service that drew between 50 and 100 friends and family.

‘What a disaster and huge pain for our family.’—Zhigui Du, Jun Lin’s mother

In an emotional two-hour-long interview, the couple spoke of their struggle to come to terms with Jun Lin’s killing and their anxiety over the court case, which is still months away.Pretrial motions will begin in March 2013.

Asked whether the Canadian legal system will be able to deliver justice in his son’s death, Jun Lin’s father, Diran Lin, said, replied, “I hope so … I can only wish for it.”

Looking back on son’s life

Jun Lin was born in the city of Wuhan, in central China. His mother said the family lived in a remote area, “poor with material things, but we were a happy family.”

To get around, the three of them would pile on a single bicycle, Jun Lin on the front, Du on the back, his father in the middle pedalling them along “bumpy village roads.”

Going to Canada was Lin’s dream, his mother said, but after arriving in Montreal he stayed in touch with his family almost every day.

They lost contact with him on the evening of May 24, and his mother then got a phone call from one of her son’s classmates in Montreal saying that his friends also had not heard from him.

“When I heard that, my heart almost stopped beating,” Du said. “I couldn’t breathe.”

She eventually learned of Jun Lin’s death from a TV news report, and said she fainted.

Coping with grief

Jun Lin’s death has put a strain on the couple, and the suggestion that his slaying has allegedly been posted online has only heightened their anguish.

“What a disaster and huge pain for our family,” Du said, sobbing.

“The most unbearable pain for me is that the video got posted on the internet. People watched it over and over. It’s like my son is being murdered again and again.”

Diran Lin said he doesn’t believe his son had a relationship with Magnotta, although his apartment was the site of Jun Lin’s murder.

“I’m confident to assure you on that,” he said, adding that testimony at trial may clarify whether the two men knew one another.

While they wait for the trial to begin, Jun Lin’s parents are also trying to decide where to lay their son’s remains to rest.

They had planned to have the burial in Montreal because, his mother said, he loved it so much there.

But the couple is facing mounting pressure from family to lay his remains to rest in the country where he was born and raised.

“We Chinese have an old saying: ‘Fallen leaves must go back to the root of the tree,'” Du said. “We’re caught in the middle and really don’t know what to do.”
