  • Brutal baboon battle erupts for throne at Toronto Zoo after matriarch dies

    After the matriarch died last year, a vicious battle erupted among the female baboons at the Toronto Zoo for her throne that endured for months, prompting a brief closure of the exhibit and providing a fascinating glimpse into the animals' behaviour. Medical records show numerous injuries among five of the six female olive baboons, from deep lacerations near their eyes to hair ripped out and tail injuries. The exhibit was closed for several days because "there were some injuries that we thought best to keep them at the back because our visiting public don't know baboon behaviour," said Maria Franke, the curator of mammals at the zoo.

  • Tim Hortons drive-thru road rage leads to fine

    As the dirty old Integra tried to nudge its way into the drive-thru lineup in front of him, Christopher Smith did what any Tim Hortons customer might: Lowered his window to tell the driver he was in line first. "This case is somewhat unusual in that Ms. David is charged as the registered owner of the vehicle involved in two related road rage incidents," Judicial Justice Brenda Edwards noted in her decision.

  • Pierre Trudeau's desk retrieved from storage for his son to use

    Canada's new prime minister has made a lot of changes in his first month in office, but CBC News has learned Justin Trudeau has also brought a bit of history back to Parliament Hill.

Sources told CBC News that Trudeau found it too big and asked for a replacement — and received one with no small measure of significance for his family.

  • 'World's sexiest robot' causes a frenzy at Beijing tech conference

    The World Robot Conference in Beijing was reportedly taken by storm this week when the latest iteration of Geminoid F – an almost terrifyingly-realistic robot woman – made an appearance during the show. Known to many as "the world's sexiest robot," the rubber-skinned android can speak, sing, and even act according to China's state-run news service. "The gel will become saggy after one or two years and has to be replaced as a result," said Sun Yuting, a Chinese student working for Ishiguro lab, to a reporter at the conference.

  • Man set to recant oath to the Queen right after citizenship ceremony

    In a letter sent to the citizenship court judge earlier this month, Dror Bar-Natan states his opposition to the oath, which he calls "repulsive," and his plan to renege on the pledge following his citizenship ceremony on Monday. The Queen is a symbol of entrenched and outdated privilege and the pledge is tantamount to a "hazing" ritual, Bar-Natan said in an interview.

  • Kitchen in Winnipeg home named best in the world

    The best contemporary kitchen in the world is right here in Winnipeg's River Heights, according to an international design contest. Architect Dov Secter is the winner, and the kitchen he designed is his own, which also serves as his office as he brings clients in to show them his work. "My wife is a great cook, and it's really a functional kitchen where the family all works together so we want to be able to hide things away quickly, have things quickly accessible, and if a client comes through, have places where everything can kind of disappear," he said.

  • Calgary truck stolen twice in one morning — but thieves foiled by snow

    Police say a Calgary man's truck was stolen twice in the span of one morning, but the thieves never made it off his snowy suburban block in either attempt to get away. The Ford F350 was first broken into in the early hours of Tuesday morning in the southeast community of Cranston. The truck's owner discovered his damaged vehicle, still running, with a broken ignition that prevented him from shutting it off.

  • Michelle Obama Welcomed the White House Christmas Tree in a Wool Blazer (29 photos)

    Being the first lady comes with a lot of responsibility. And while being a trendsetter certainly pales in comparison to the weight of attempting to curb the childhood obesity problem in the United States or getting kids moving, dressing fashionably is part of the job. A few years into her husband’s presidency, Michelle Obama has already set herself apart from her predecessors, bringing a modern edge — and even J. Crew — to the White House. She’s also a political dresser, conscientiously picking labels to fit with occasions, from wearing a custom Vera Wang gown for a state dinner hosting Chinese President Xi Jinping and Tadashi Shoji when Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and his wife Akie Abe came to Washington to Missoni in Italy and Preen in England.  Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest for nonstop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.

Poor Wu Chen, 67, stashed the cash in a carrier bag five years ago, feeling sure it would be safe. Mr Chen didn’t tell anyone when he squirreled away the 35,000 RMB (£3,627) in a plastic bag, placing it in a hole in Deyang, in south-west China’s Sichuan Province.

  • After three years in limbo, this Syrian family pins hopes on Canada

    At 9:33 Friday morning, for the first time in years, Mohammed Ismail Ali felt something he’d just about given up on – hope. The Syrian physician has been living in Irbid, a dreary, sprawling city in northern Jordan, for three years. He and his wife Noor have tried every angle they can think of to get themselves, their daughter Hala, 10, and sons Osama, 6, and AdbelRahman, 3, out of the Middle East. And they have failed, time and again. Australia turned down their asylum claim. France took two months with their application and sent a text message: not eligible. Canada said asylum was possible only through UNHCR, the UN refugee agency. The Germans said no. In August, Dr. Ali and his wife sold their
