  • Suspected drunk driver in crash that left 4 dead remanded in custody

    Marco Muzzo, 29, was in handcuffs when he entered the courtroom wearing jeans and a black short-sleeved shirt overtop a white one. Outside the courthouse, Muzzo's high-powered defence lawyer, Brian Greenspan, said his client wants to express his condolences to the family of the victims following the crash in Vaughan, Ont., on Sunday. Greenspan said it was "premature" to discuss how his client would plead and would not comment on where Muzzo was before the Sunday afternoon crash, saying only that the information would come out in court.

  • Ghosts of Harper's political past come back to haunt him in leaders' debate

    MONTREAL â Two ghosts from Stephen Harper's political past came back to haunt him Friday during the final leaders' debate of the election campaign: the notion that he has a hidden agenda and his position on abortion. Both lines of attack have been used against Harper since he took over leadership of the Conservatives in 2004. In Quebec in particular, the NDP are seeing their support bleed to the Conservatives in part over the unexpected campaign issue of the wearing of veils during citizenship ceremonies, which the Conservatives oppose and the NDP support.

  • Bye bye Google, hello Alphabet

    (Reuters) - Google Inc has morphed into Alphabet Inc. After U.S. markets closed on Friday, Alphabet replaced Google as the publicly traded company that will house Google's search and Web advertising businesses, maps, YouTube and its "moonshot" ventures such as driverless cars. Google's class A shares and class C shares will automatically convert into the same number of Alphabet class A shares and class C shares and start trading on the Nasdaq from Monday. The structural overhaul, announced in August, is intended to separate the company's core businesses from ventures such as the driverless cars, glucose-monitoring contact lenses and Internet-connected high-altitude balloons.

  • Canada's refugees: Where they come from by the numbers

    Refugees from nearly every country have come to Canada over the years. And often the countries they came from reflect the history of international crises, like Syria and Iraq today or Chile and Bangladesh in the 1970s and Sri Lanka and Haiti more recently. Of that number, an average of about 11,000 were refugees who came to Canada and successfully claimed refugee status and 4,000 were their dependants. Seven thousand refugees received government assistance to resettle in Canada, and 4,000 were privately sponsored.

  • India's first male supermodels: Then and now (7 photos)

    At some point of time in the 90s, after our country opened its gates for economic liberalisation and before the runway merged with Bollywood, Indian fashion was all about four men – Arjun Rampal, Milind Soman, Marc Robinson and Rahul Dev – the first and also the last of their kind. Of course there was John Abraham, whom Atul Kasbekar regarded as a ‘combination of all the aforementioned models’; subsequently, the breed of  male supermodels sort of died out in India. Today the lines that define masculinity have become more or less blurred, with the assimilation of metrosexual and androgynous; on the other extreme, stands the brawny men, and individuality got pushed into the periphery somewhere along the way. There is an abundance of models, but dearth of characters, contrary to the days when Milind Soman, Arjun Rampal, etc., were household names. The highlight of any fashion shows these days are the Bollywood stars, whose roles have extended to that of a show stopper. Even brands resort to the big screen when they are looking for a face to sell their products. Change is inevitable and good, but it also brings a sense of loss; all we can do is reminisce the good old era of male supermodels.
