The SIU is continuing to investigate the mystery behind why a man drove a vehicle off a cliff late Friday afternoon.

What we know so far is an Elgin County OPP officer began following a vehicle on Springfield Road and attempted to stop the vehicle. A package was thrown out the vehicle's window, the officer stopped to get the package and then searched for the car. A civilian told the officer that the vehicle had driven off the cliff on Springfield Road, just east of Port Bruce, and into the lake.

The OPP's underwater search and recovery team was called in and a body was removed from the vehicle on Saturday. The SIU has identified the man, but did not have permission to release the name.

A postmortem is scheduled to take place today.

What was in the package cannot be released yet as investigation continues.

A former Ontario nurse who murdered eight seniors in her care is expected to appear at a sentencing hearing in Woodstock, Ont., today.

Elizabeth Wettlaufer pleaded guilty to eight counts of first-degree murder, four counts of attempted murder and two counts of aggravated assault in late May.

The 50-year-old admitted to using insulin in all 14 cases that stretched from 2007 to 2016, and has said she believed she was an instrument of God as she killed and hurt vulnerable patients.

The crimes, which occurred in three Ontario long-term care facilities and a private home, make Wettlaufer one of Canada's worst serial killers.

Victim impact statements are expected to be filed in court today, and some family members of Wettlaufer's victims are expected to read their statements to the court.

Crown prosecutors have said they are proposing a joint submission with the defence on sentencing.

They are suggesting all Wettlaufer's sentences run concurrently, with a life sentence with no eligibility for parole for 25 years on the eight first-degree murder counts, 10 years for the four attempted murder counts and seven years for both aggravated assault counts.

A new study says Ontario needs to come up with innovative skills and apprenticeship training for Ontario’s young people to get jobs in the future.

The report, commissioned by the Ontario Skilled Trades Alliance, says conventional approaches to skills and apprenticeship training are out of date and no longer apply.

It points out that 65 per cent of elementary school students will end up in careers that don't yet exist.

Among other things, the report calls for more flexible certification and for students to dedicate 20 hours of community work to mastering trades and practical skills.

It also calls for a greater emphasis on creative online learning.
