• Defrauded former NHLer Bryan Berard speaks out about financial missteps

    When Bryan Berard retired in 2009, he was shocked to learn that the nest egg he built over a 10-year NHL career was gone.

"For me, I thought the best thing was to talk about it, let people know what happened to me," Berard said in an interview.

  • Lastest: Hollande: UK cannot cherry pick rules

    French President Francois Hollande says that Britain will not be able to cherry pick just what it wants from the European Union in its future relationship, especially when it comes to free movement of people. Immigration and an influx of non-British EU citizens into the UK was a key theme of the referendum campaign which led Britain to vote to leave the EU. Hollande said Britain will not simply be able to say now to keep foreigners out while keeping all other business advantages of the EU's seamless single market.

The "moral blameworthiness" of the 32-year-old man ranked as the worst among the men already sentenced because children in the community suffered more frequent abuse at his hands, said Queen's Bench Judge Robert Cummings in Brandon.

  • Bolivia’s Great Train Graveyard

    In a vast desert plain in Southwestern Bolivia, a field of steam-powered locomotives have been left to rust. The hulking skeletons of British trains and rail cars sit in a sprawling train graveyard on the edge of the Andean plain. The trains were imported to Bolivia from Britain in the 20th century. But when the rail industry choked and faltered, the enormous machines were abandoned and left to the mercy of the elements.  The hollow carcasses of the great machines are buffeted by the salt blown over from the nearby salt flats, and are gradually rotting away entirely.  Photographer Chris Staring visited the train graveyard, capturing the bleak beauty of the rusting machines and the bizarre Mad Max-style atmosphere.

  • Conrad Black reaches settlement with CRA over tax liens on his mansion

The Rocky Mountain Civil Liberties Association says not only are these checks unconstitutional, they are also more likely to happen in Calgary neighbourhoods with greater racial diversity.

  • Mayor John Tory's immigrant talk 'crossed a line' in Scarborough subway op-ed: Josh Matlow

    Mayor John Tory "crossed an ethical line" when he implied that Torontonians living outside of Scarborough don't care about providing transit for the area's largely immigrant population in an editorial in support of the subway extension, Coun. Josh Matlow said. Matlow was referencing two lines in Tory's Toronto Star op-ed where he wrote that many of the extension's critics don't live in Scarborough, "where more than half the population is born outside of Canada. The councillor for Ward 22 (St. Paul's) said that the statement is "factually untrue" and those who are against the subway extension, himself included, are still in favour of bringing more transit to Scarborough.
