  • Canadiens match Lightning by acquiring Petry from Oilers for picks

    It didn't take long for the Montreal Canadiens to match the rival Tampa Bay Lightning by getting better before the NHL trade deadline. The Canadiens acquired defenceman Jeff Petry on Monday morning from the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for a second-round pick and a conditional fourth-rounder that could be worth as much as a third depending on playoff performance. Overnight, the Lightning improved their defence corps by getting Braydon Coburn from the Philadelphia Flyers for defenceman Radko Gudas and first- and third-round picks in this year's draft. The Lightning also sent forward Brett Connolly to the Boston Bruins for second-round picks in the next two drafts.

  • Montreal erotic parlours flourishing despite federal anti-prostitution law

    One year after the mayor promised to crack down on erotic massage parlours, Montreal still doesn't know what it's going to do with the hundreds of establishments operating right across the city. City officials are still debating how to tackle the issue of erotic parlours, many of which are open 24/7 and illegally employ women who have sex with men in the massage rooms. Without a firm policy, community groups and massage parlour owners say the police are letting the de-facto brothels operate under a tacit agreement: don't hire minors, don't force women to do anything they don't want to do, and keep organized crime out of it. Yanik Chicoine, 37, operates two erotic massage parlours in Montreal's east-end and said police leave him alone despite the fact some of his employees sell their bodies for money inside his business.

  • Oil falls to $61 on dollar, Iran, supply concerns

    Brent crude oil fell more than 2 percent to around $61 a barrel on Monday after Iran said a deal on its nuclear program could be agreed this week if the West lifts sanctions, which could boost the country's oil exports. Oil prices were also depressed by a stronger dollar and reports of a rise in Libyan crude output, traders said. Brent crude hit a low of $60.86 a barrel and was at $62.00 by 9 a.m. ET, down $1.58. "If there is the political will to accept that an agreement and sanctions cannot go together, then we can have an agreement this time," Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said.

  • 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.

  • Anti-turbine farm families fight whopping legal bill from wind-farm companies

    A demand that four Ontario families pay hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal costs to billion-dollar companies is a thinly disguised warning to anyone pondering a challenge to industrial wind farms in Ontario, the families say. In asking the courts to set the legal bill aside, the citizens say the award would cripple them financially and undermine access to justice, even in important public-interest cases. The families, who worry wind turbines near their homes could harm their health, had challenged the constitutionality of Ontario's approvals process before Divisional Court. Shawn Drennan said his $240,000 bill was excessive given that he was only looking to protect his rights.
