  • Raging fire threatens to reduce Canadian city to ashes, engulf airport

    By Rod Nickel ANZAC, Alberta (Reuters) - A massive wildfire that has forced all 88,000 people to flee the western Canadian oil city of Fort McMurray and burned down 1,600 structures is now threatening its airport and communities well south of the town, authorities said on Wednesday. With a few neighborhoods already in ruins, worsening fire conditions Wednesday pushed walls of flames toward thousands of more homes in the northeastern Alberta town, in the heart of Canada's oil sands region.

  • Canada's housing market ‘inching towards instability,’ U.S. bank warns

    A big U.S. bank is warning that Canada’s housing market is “inching towards instability” amid low interest rates and a lack of listings. The recent report by Emanuella Enenajor, the North America economist at Bank of America Merrill Lynch, is yet more evidence of the frothy nature of some markets, though she’s not warning of a crash. Ms. Enenajor also said she expects further action by the federal government to cool things down. Housing markets differ across the country, of course. But, as The Globe and Mail’s Tamsin McMahon reports, the national housing agency threw up cautionary flags for several in a quarterly report last week. “Canada’s housing market is overheating,” Ms. Enenajor said. “House

  • Here's the real reason that photos of bin Laden's body won't ever be shown

    There are a lot of puzzled expressions on people's faces when it comes to the subject of Osama Bin Laden and why the White House has not authorized the release of any pictures of his body. Photographs and video were released of Saddam Hussein's hanging, as were post-mortem pictures of his criminal sons, Uday and Qusay, after Delta Force took them out. Why not release a few pictures of Public Enemy No. 1 to prove that he is dead and show the world what happens when you take on the US? Matt Bissonnette, one of the SEAL Team Six operators on the raid, partially outs the reason in his book, "No Easy Day." The book reads, "In his death throes, he was still twitching and convulsing."

  • The real reasons nothing can ever go faster than light

    It was September 2011 and physicist Antonio Ereditato had just shocked the world. The announcement he had made promised to overturn our understanding of the Universe. If the data gathered by 160 scientists working on the OPERA project were correct, the unthinkable had been observed. Particles – in this case, neutrinos – had travelled faster than light. This time the scientists got it wrong According to Einstein's theories of relativity, this should not have been possible. And the implications for showing it had happened were vast. Many bits of physics might have to be reconsidered. Although Ereditato said that he and his team had "high confidence" in their result, they did not claim that they q

  • About a dozen people at risk of losing citizenship after auditor general report

    Immigration officials are looking at revoking the Canadian citizenship of about a dozen people after the auditor general found the government isn't doing enough to root out fraud in the citizenship system. Michael Ferguson's report uncovered instances of people with serious criminal records and others using potentially phoney addresses among those who managed to secure Canadian citizenship thanks to holes throughout not just the Immigration Department but the RCMP and Canada Border Services Agency as well. The cases flagged represent just a fraction of the nearly half a million people who've become Canadian citizens in the last two years, but that doesn't mean improvements aren't necessary, Immigration Minister John McCallum said Tuesday.
