  • 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.

The campaign was launched by the Ahmadiyya Muslim community at mosques across Canada yesterday, including the Baitur Rahman Mosque in Delta, B.C. Iman Balal Khokhor said they don't want their religion to be misunderstood in light of recent violent attacks by extremists in the name of Islam. They don't know their culture, their religion, and we want to showcase that in fact we are Canadian and just like any other Canadians," said Khokhor.

  • 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.

  • Jays catcher Russell Martin: Corralling knuckleball is like catching a butterfly

    Ask Russell Martin what it's like to corral a R.A. Dickey knuckleball and the Blue Jays catcher pauses briefly, trying to capture the experience. Martin got his first in-game experience with the Dickey floater Monday, albeit for just one inning of a low-key intra-squad game. Dickey issued a walk and Martin had two balls dribble out of his glove, but at no cost. "He's got as good as hands as anybody in baseball," Gibbons said of Martin.
