Ottawa -

Court proceedings involving a Roman Catholic bishop facing child-pornography charges are not scheduled to resume until April 9.
Raymond Lahey was charged in September with possessing and importing child pornography, 10 days after he was detained by customs officers upon arriving in Ottawa aboard a flight from Britain.
Several subsequent court dates have been put off and Lahey has yet to enter a plea on the charges.
Police say they found hundreds of files and dozens of videos on Lahey's laptop, many of them showing young males engaged in sex acts.
The 69-year-old bishop, who stepped down as head of the Roman Catholic diocese in Antigonish, N.S., has been staying with other priests in Ottawa since he was granted bail Oct. 1.
