The opposition leader, who’s been lagging behind Johnson in personal approval scores, effectively tied with the premier in a snap poll on which candidate won the clash Tuesday night.

Shelley Love Baldwin says Bill Murdock sexually abused her. He pleaded guilty to a reduced charge but says he is innocent. Three decades later, she says, “The truth is important…my story is important.” Heather Barbieri was Shelley’s little sister, but she took on a big job. She feels the impact to this day.
