  • Toronto tunnel dug by 2 men as 'man cave', police say

    Two men in their 20s dug the large tunnel found in north Toronto as a "man cave" to hang out in, police said Monday. The tunnel, which was discovered in January but first reported by CBC News last week, was dug near York University’s Keele campus and the Rexall Centre, a major tennis venue that’s set to host part of this summer’s Pan Am Games, as well as the high-profile Rogers Cup tournament. The tunnel, which was 10.1 metres long,1.93 metres high and 86.4 centimetres wide, has been filled in. Investigators believe the men began working on the tunnel last September.

  • Montreal erotic parlours flourishing despite federal anti-prostitution law

    One year after the mayor promised to crack down on erotic massage parlours, Montreal still doesn't know what it's going to do with the hundreds of establishments operating right across the city. City officials are still debating how to tackle the issue of erotic parlours, many of which are open 24/7 and illegally employ women who have sex with men in the massage rooms. Without a firm policy, community groups and massage parlour owners say the police are letting the de-facto brothels operate under a tacit agreement: don't hire minors, don't force women to do anything they don't want to do, and keep organized crime out of it. Yanik Chicoine, 37, operates two erotic massage parlours in Montreal's east-end and said police leave him alone despite the fact some of his employees sell their bodies for money inside his business.

  • Irvine Welsh’s ‘The Sex Lives of Siamese Twins’

    It is not advisable to read Irvine Welsh’s 13th book, “The Sex Lives of Siamese Twins,” and snack simultaneously. Because Welsh, known for his gleeful depictions of the depraved degenerates who populate Scotland’s seediest hollows, has turned his attention to one of his adopted homes, Miami Beach, that “sun-drenched refuge for strutting grotesques and desperate narcissists.” This is not Welsh’s first Rollerblade around Florida; “Crime” followed a coke-addled Edinburgh detective along the same bright sidewalks. Meanwhile, the 200-pound Lena ­Sorenson (her weight is “a crime against the aesthetic order in South Beach”) is the sole witness to this scene, which she captures on her phone. When she shares the footage with a local news station, Lucy is painted as a hero.

  • Iraq launches large-scale military operation to recapture Tikrit from Islamic State group

    Backed by allied Shiite, Sunni and Iranian fighters, Iraqi security forces launched a large-scale military operation Monday to recapture Saddam Hussein's hometown from the Islamic State extremist group, a major step in a campaign to reclaim territory in northern Iraq controlled by the militants. State-run Al-Iraqiya television said that forces were attacking Tikrit from different directions, backed by artillery and airstrikes by Iraqi fighter jets. The military commander of Salahuddin region, Gen. Abdul-Wahab al-Saadi, told state TV the operation was "going on as planned," with fighting taking place outside Tikrit mainly on its eastern side. Tikrit, the provincial capital of Salauhddin province, 130 kilometres (80 miles) north of Baghdad, fell to the Islamic State group last summer, along with the country's second-largest city of Mosul and other areas in the country's Sunni heartland.
