  • Putin letter to Arab summit triggers strong Saudi attack

    By Yara Bayoumy and Mahmoud Mourad SHARM EL-SHEIKH, Egypt (Reuters) - Saudi Arabia accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of hypocrisy on Sunday, telling an Arab summit that he should not express support for the Middle East while fuelling instability by supporting Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad. In a rare move, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi announced that a letter from Putin would be read out to the gathering in Egypt, where Arab leaders discussed an array of regional crises, including conflicts in Syria, Yemen and Libya. "We support the Arabs' aspirations for a prosperous future and for the resolution of all the problems the Arab world faces through peaceful means, without any external interference," Putin said in the letter.

  • Future Shop closure 'inevitable' but doesn't spell end of tech retailers: expert

    The elimination of the Future Shop brand may be the end of an era for the once-successful Canadian retailer, but it does not foretell the end for stand-alone electronics stores, says one business expert. Mark Satov says closing Future Shop was an "inevitable" move for Best Buy, the American company that bought the Canadian retailer in 2001. "Best Buy is a big U.S. brand so if they had to shutter one brand in Canada it would certainly be Future Shop," said Satov, a business adviser on customer strategy with Satov Consultants in Toronto.

  • The incredible true story behind the Toronto mystery tunnel

    The digger Elton McDonald grew up on what’s probably the toughest street in Toronto—maybe even Canada—and he still lives there with his mother and two sisters. Elton’s sister Anora Graham went to the man’s aid, pressing a shirt she’d run to fetch against the wound. The townhouse, in a public housing development in the city’s far northwest called Driftwood Court, is small: a kitchen and living room on the ground floor, three bedrooms on the second.
