"Following a preliminary inquiry, the Manitoba Court of Queen's Bench on Wednesday ordered Kenneth William Storheim, 65, to stand trial.
Details of the preliminary inquiry cannot be published due to a court-ordered ban. A trial date will be set on March 14.

Lord, have mercy!
He spoke it as kindly and heartily as could be; as if a man dashed a gallon of cold water in your broth and never doubted you'd like it all the better.

Am I the only one who noticed a stylistic difference in how that CBC article was written in contrast to American news styles. I think that rather than dismissively referring to his being known as 'Archbishop Seraphim in church circles' and referring to him by his legal name, most American news sources would report about him as 'Archbishop Seraphim Storheim'.  Perhaps it is better for the Church the way the Canadians reported it, although the picture probably negates that.....
