    Girl, 5, fatally struck in school parking lot had already fought cancer in her short life, family friend says

    A little Toronto girl, who died in hospital Monday after being crushed by an SUV in a drop-off area at an elementary school, was recently given a clean bill of health after fighting cancer since the age of three. "She was definitely an angel," said Ana Paula Carrera of five-year-old Camila Torcato. On Monday at around 3:30 p.m. ET, Camila was about to climb into the family's minivan at St. Raphael Catholic School in North York when an unoccupied vehicle rolled into the little girl and her father, Amilcar Torcato.

    Family of Toronto girl who claimed her hijab was cut apologizes, reports say

    The family of an 11-year-old Toronto girl has reportedly apologized for the "pain and anger" they caused, after the girl's claim that a man cut her hijab turned out not to be true. "This has been a very painful experience for our family," said the statement, first reported by the Toronto Star. Toronto police began investigating the alleged incident as a hate crime last Friday, after the girl said she was attacked twice on the way to school by a man who cut her hijab with scissors.

    Survivors of ISIS atrocities settling in Calgary urge Canada not to turn away others

    Kamo Zandinan is haunted by the two years spent in the hands of ISIS militants in Iraq, too weak to do anything but watch as they snatched her husband and four of her seven children — the youngest, a three-year-old girl — with the intention of killing them or selling them off into sexual slavery. "I can't sleep if I don't take medication," said Zandinan, 38, speaking through a translator in her dimly lit basement suite in southwest Calgary. Many of them are now urging the federal government to go beyond its initial commitment to bring in 1,200 survivors of ISIS, because they know it's the only way the horrors will stop for those still facing persecution.

    Mueller team would hardly be first lawyers to question Trump

    Donald Trump was in a roomful of lawyers, venting about unfair treatment in the media that he said had understated his net worth and damaged his brand. It was December 2007, a decade before Trump would become president and routinely excoriate reporters for "fake news." This time, the businessman was facing a daylong deposition in his lawsuit against a journalist he'd accused of downplaying his wealth. "You always want to put the best possible spin on a property that you can," Trump explained.
