Fake priest's family sentenced for police bashing
The family of a Montreal priest who was beaten to death by an army medic during his funeral has appealed for help from people across Canada.
Fr. David Leduc, 59, of the church of St. Patrick's, was among four soldiers assigned by President Francois Hollande to head off the protests at the service for his late brother, Archbishop Henri.
