Live updates from the G20 summit in Cannes

Europe's debt drama is dominating talks among leaders of the Group of 20 leading economies Thursday, with Greece's government facing potential collapse and European leaders admitting that the eurozone may face losing its weakest member. Prime Minister Stephen Harper, who arrived in Cannes today, and the other G20 leaders are scrambling to contain the Greece debt crisis which has come to dominate the summit. European leaders agreed last week to boost a bailout fund for Greece, but the plan has been thrown into doubt by the surprise decision by Prime Minister George Papandreou to hold a referendum on the euro zone bailout. Infighting and defections within the ruling socialist party have pushed the government to the brink of collapse. Globe reporters Doug Saunders and Eric Reguly will provide updates throughout the day from Cannes.
