Beseiged former radio-show host Jian Ghomeshi is withdrawing the $55-million lawsuit against the CBC, according to reports.

This is not a typical video from Femen, the sextremist group that strips in front of politicians to protest patriarchy, homophobia, and religious dogma.
No, these images show some topless women allegedly kidnapping a priest.
The video says the abduction was done to demand cancellation of Pope Francis's upcoming visit to the European Parliament on Tuesday (November 25).
One of Femen's leaders, Anna Hutsol, has claimed that the group is in a war for civil rights. You can learn more in the video below. (It's age-restricted.)
Comedian Bill Cosby was in the Bahamas last night raising money for a local charity and polishing his image.
He cracked jokes and told tales of his upbringing in Philadelphia in a benefit for the Links, a women's service organization.
Meanwhile, a fourth woman has come forward with claims that Cosby sexually assaulted her.
Florida nurse Therese Serignese alleged that the incident occurred 38 years ago.
A fifth woman, Carla Ferrigno, has told a radio interview that Cosby grabbed her and tried to kiss her in 1967. Ferrigno is the wife and manager of Lou Ferrigno, who starred in The Incredible Hulk.
All of the women's statements have been vigorously denied by Cosby's lawyer, who says these are "decades-old discredited allegations".
In late September 2014, the federal government announced a major new approach for dealing with aboriginal land claims.
The "laughably short consultation period" ends on November 30, according to the video above by IdleNoMoreMedia.
It comes in response to the Williams decision in the Supreme Court of Canada, which granted aboriginal title to the Tsilhqot'in First Nation.
Douglas Eyford is heading the consultation. That's the same Douglas Eyford named by Prime Minister Stephen Harper to generate support among First Nations for pipeline projects and other energy projects.
"Land-claim policy requires negotiating with First Nations to extinguish their rights and underlying title to their land," the video states. "The government calls this reconciliation."
