The people who want to take Barton St. back after acts of violence

A crowd of more than 50 people,marched in a biting autumn wind on Barton Street on Thursday, pausing every few hundred metres to commemorate story after story of violence, death and missing persons.

The crowd included councillors Matthew Green and Jason Farr, Tiger-Cats players David Caldwell and Brandon Banks, four Hamilton Police officers, a handful of high-schoolers and community workers and neighbours.

It's one thing to read and hear about the stories as they happen, said Coun. Matthew Green. But to put them all together in one afternoon's walk brings a new depth of meaning.

Justin Bieber, who made a triumphant return to the European stage at the MTV Europe Music Awards in Milan on Sunday, abruptly cancelled his concert in Oslo on Thursday night after performing just one song.

The Stratford, Ont., singer, who found fame at 13 and went on to become a global pop phenomenon, scooped five prizes in Milan, including Best Male and Biggest Fans, and next month is to release his first album in three years, during which bad behavior offstage risked damaging his family-friendly teen heartthrob image.
