  • Vladimir Putin's Alleged Girlfriend Alina Kabaeva Pregnant? Ex-Gymnast's Dress, Appearance At Event Spark Rumors

    Alina Kabaeva, a former gymnast and alleged girlfriend of Russian President Vladimir Putin, sparked renewed pregnancy rumors in domestic and social media outlets this week when she wore a “billowy” dress to a youth gymnastic event, a report said Thursday. The Kremlin has repeatedly denied persistent speculation that Putin and Kabaeva are in a relationship, as well as rumors the pair have children together. “Comments on Russian social media point out that 32-year-old Alina Kabaeva, the former champion gymnast-turned-politician, appears to have gained a few pounds,” CNN reporter Matthew Chance said. Shortly after the youth gymnastic event, which was attended by Russian veterans of World War II, local media outlets suggested Kabaeva looked “tired,” “overweight” and “older,” the New York Post reported.

  • Why was Eugene Melnyk, a foreign resident, eligible for surgery in Ontario?

    Neither the Ottawa Senators nor hospital officials where he was treated will say why team owner Eugene Melnyk qualified to receive a liver transplant at a hospital in Toronto given that he is a permanent resident of Barbados. Eligibility rules under the Ontario Health Insurance Program require patients to make their primary residence in Ontario and spend at least 153 days — about five months — in any 12-month period to maintain their coverage under the provincial plan. The “snowbird” provision prevents patients from living out of the province and returning to Ontario only when they need health care.

  • Racist bullying plagues Calgary family in mostly-black housing complex, mother says

  • St. John's families forced to vacate million-dollar dream homes

    A secluded, picturesque lane called Scout's Place in the Goulds area of St. John's has become the centre of a complex and heated dispute between home-building twin brothers, another land owner in the area and the City of St. John's. The controversy revolves around disputed ownership of a right-of-way that brothers Ian and Jed Kieley say is forcing them and their young families to vacate their unfinished million-dollar homes — possibly as early as Friday — even though they have been occupying without a permit for months. It seems the only thing the Kieleys and Malone can agree on is who to pin the blame on — the City of St. John's.

"I was as surprised as anyone, I think," said Mulkeen, who lives near the corner of Simpson and Doctor-Penfield avenues.

  • Whites returning to Detroit, lured by cheaper living to city that epitomized white flight

    Whites are moving back to the American city that came to epitomize white flight, even as blacks continue to leave for the suburbs and the city's overall population shrinks. Detroit is the latest major city to see an influx of whites who may not find the suburbs as alluring as their parents and grandparents did in the last half of the 20th century. Unlike New York, San Francisco and many other cities that have seen the demographic shift, though, it is cheap housing and incentive programs that are partly fueling the regrowth of the Motor City's white population.
