  • Mother who lost 3 kids, dad says she can't bear to have Christmas tree at home

Nine-year-old Daniel, Harrison, 5, and two-year-old Milly Neville-Lake were killed along with Gary Neville, 65, after the van they were in was T-boned by an SUV in Vaughan, Ont., on Sept. 27.

  • Airlines resent paying tab to return passengers rejected by Canada

    Major Canadian airlines say they're unfairly shouldering the costs of removing from Canada people who arrive with a passport or other valid document only to be turned away by federal officials. There are "numerous scenarios" in which air carriers must pay the tab for returning such inadmissible arrivals to their home country, Air Canada says in a submission to a federal review panel studying transportation policy. "In extreme cases, should the passenger become ill and be hospitalized before they leave Canada, carriers are even expected to pick up the medical bills," Air Canada says in its submission to the review of the Canada Transportation Act.

  • Adele Wore Burberry Again Because She’s a Supportive Brit (13 photos)

    When Karl Lagerfeld, the reigning King of Fashion, fat shames you, there’s no better revenge than to step out in some gorgeous outfits. For Adele, who became the target of the Kaiser’s out-of-touch body opinions a few years back, she proved that even people who are “a little roundish” can drop mics both literally in regards to music and figuratively in the sartorial sense. And looking great — and doing even greater things — is like one large metaphorical f** you (to him, all her exes, and anyone else that’s ever doubted her).  The singer, with her album set to debut on November 20 after a three year hiatus (she settled down, had a baby, and spent time gathering source material) has been doing just that, with fashion-forward music videos any designer would give up green juice forever to be a part of, public appearances in sparkly gowns Kate Middleton might eventually wear, and street-chic ensembles that style bloggers will emulate with step-by-step shopping details. From multiple Jenny Packham gowns to statement coats (including one inspired by Mr. Snuffleupagus), the hits don’t stop for Adele at ballads.   Follow us on Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest for nonstop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.
