  • Boldly go ahead, doodlers: bank says 'Spocking' Laurier on $5 not illegal

    It turns out there's not a lot of logic in the belief that it's against the law to Vulcanize Sir Wilfrid Laurier's likeness on the $5 bill. The death of Leonard Nimoy last week inspired people to post photos on social media of marked-up banknotes that show Canada's seventh prime minister transformed to resemble Spock, Nimoy's famous "Star Trek" character. Contrary to popular belief, it's not illegal to deface or even mutilate banknotes, the Bank of Canada said Monday — although the publication of a banknote's likeness is still prohibited, except under certain conditions. There are good reasons to resist the urge to scribble on bills, said bank spokeswoman Josianne Menard.

Coen said before calling the case that Knight had been taken to a hospital, but he did not elaborate.

  • Netanyahu in Washington, assails Iran deal, touts US-Israel ties ahead of Congress address

    Benjamin Netanyahu and U.S. officials cast their dispute over Iran as a family squabble on Monday, even as the Israeli leader claimed President Barack Obama did not — and could not — fully understand his nation's vital security concerns. "American leaders worry about the security of their country," Netanyahu said as he opened a controversial trip to Washington. Netanyahu's remarks to a friendly crowd at a pro-Israel lobby's annual conference amounted to a warm-up act for his address to Congress Tuesday, an appearance orchestrated by Obama's political opponents and aimed squarely at undermining the White House's high-stakes bid for a nuclear deal with Iran.

  • Pesticide likely killed two Quebec sisters in Thailand in 2012: coroner

    RIVIERE-DU-LOUP, Que. - A Quebec coroner has concluded that two sisters found dead in their hotel room in Thailand in 2012 were probably intoxicated by phosphine, a strong pesticide. The same pesticide was also believed to have been responsible for the recent deaths of two children in northern Alberta. Coroner Renee Roussel said Monday the fact Audrey, 20, and Noemi Belanger, 26, were both very sick and appeared to have the same symptoms led her to conclude they suffered the same health problem — intoxication. She said it is officially forbidden to use phosphine to fumigate hotel rooms in Thailand, but that it might in fact still be used.

Between heading backstage, watching the live action, and mingling during commercial breaks, there's a lot more fun that goes on when the cameras aren't rolling.
