  • You'll Love Seeing Princess Charlotte's Debut Side by Side With George's

    Princess Charlotte made her long-awaited debut on May 2, less than two years after her older brother, Prince George, was born. Like with Prince George, Kate Middleton and Prince William introduced their daughter to waiting crowds outside of the Lindo Wing of St. Mary's Hospital in London. The entire event, from Kate going into labor to the official birth announcement and the initial reveal, was so similar to George's that we had to look at both royal babies' arrivals side by side.

  • Greece says has begun drawing up agreement with creditors

    Greece and its creditors are starting to draft a technical-level agreement, a government official said on Wednesday, signalling progress in long-running talks to unlock aid for the cash-strapped country. "At the Brussels Group (of credit negotiators) today procedures to draw up a staff-level agreement are beginning," the official said, adding that Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras would be in constant touch with other leaders to conclude a deal. The statement appeared to suggest significant progress in talks with European Union and International Monetary Fund creditors that form the Brussels Group, though sources close to the lenders have so far not indicated any such progress to merit drawing up an agreement.

  • First Nations $300M federal housing fund builds just 99 homes

    A $300-million aboriginal housing fund created by the Conservative government is falling far short of its promise of creating thousands of new homes on reserves that desperately need dwellings. A CBC News investigation has found the First Nations Market Housing Fund helped build just 99 homes to date and is nowhere near meeting its ambitious target of 25,000 privately owned dwellings by 2018. "Frankly, it's taken us a little longer than anticipated," says John Beaucage, chair of the fund's board of trustees.

  • Shaquille O'Neal swears he'd be 'a Laker to this day' but for Karl Malone's 2004 knee injury

    Despite the troubling (to say the absolute least) rape allegations against Kobe Bryant, despite Shaquille O’Neal’s stated demands for a contract extension, Shaq’s clear weight issues, and the obvious and simmering tension between the two players, the Los Angeles Lakers came out of the 2003-04 regular season going great guns. Coach Phil Jackson would later write that he didn’t think his team’s early good fortune was sustainable, but the Lakers were running at 20-5 when forward Karl Malone hurt his left knee in a collision with Phoenix’s Scott Williams. The future Hall of Famer played terrific basketball in the postseason as well, scoring 30 points and 13 rebounds in one close-out game against Houston, before yet another knee injury curtailed his output and before eventually sidelining him for the Lakers’ final game of the season – a Finals-clinching loss to Detroit.

  • Dear Air Canada, you’re clamping down on the wrong behaviour

    As of Monday, anyone flying out of Toronto’s Lester B. Pearson Airport with Air Canada will want to pay special attention to their baggage, emotional and otherwise.

The salvo represented a new turn in the so-called Carry-on Crisis that began last fall when the airline announced it would start charging for checked bags on domestic flights.
