January 3, 2019 1:43 PM What kind of welcome will Kawhi Leonard get in San Antonio when Raptors visit tonight?

The absolute truth side, which will be somewhere in the middle and the most realistic. I always thought, naively I guess, that this week would be more about Kawhi than DeMar and that February’s return game in Toronto would be more about DeMar than Kawhi. Hasn’t turned out that way – it really was nice to see DeMar yesterday and chat with him and catch 134

December 31, 2018 8:55 PM Vatican officials resign amid crisis period for the Pope

VATICAN CITY—The Vatican spokesman, Greg Burke, and his deputy resigned abruptly Monday amid an overhaul of the Vatican’s communications operations and a crisis period in Pope Francis’ papacy. The departures of Burke and his deputy, Paloma Garcia Ovejero, signalled that the problems associated with Francis’ reform of the Vatican bureaucracy had come to a head, and at a very bad time: The pope is struggling 119

December 26, 2018 3:35 PM Nature Conservancy recommends a better fate for your Christmas tree

Canada’s Christmas tree farms produce over three million pine, spruce and fir trees each year — and most of them are simply abandoned at the curb soon after Santa makes his annual visit. Now, the Nature Conservancy of Canada is suggesting that people should instead haul their tree to the backyard, to help nature and learn a bit about ecology 113

December 17, 2018 3:30 PM Controversial appointment of Ron Taverner as OPP commissioner cast into further doubt as he heads back to Toronto police job

The veteran Toronto police officer said Saturday he was temporarily stepping aside “out of the greatest respect for the brave men and women of the Ontario Provincial Police.” The government agreed to the request and noted it retains “full confidence” in him. The hiring process raised eyebrows because it included a lowering of qualifications that cleared 143

December 10, 2018 11:45 PM A PC coverup under the nose of Doug Ford’s kangaroo court

Like kangaroos, politicians are a peculiar species, given to strutting and kicking. Coverups are second nature as they try to hide their tracks — fiscal, political and personal — to throw rivals off the scent. But predators, partisans and premiers are always in hot pursuit. Doug Ford created a legislative committee last September to ferret out the truth 120

December 1, 2018 7:02 PM Trump’s on-off dance with complicated acquaintances at G20 summit

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov called the cancelled Trump-Putin meeting a missed opportunity, saying it didn’t “help settling a number of important international problems.” He added, with resignation, “Love can’t be forced.” But did Trump interact with bin Salman or Putin behind the scenes, away from prying eyes? A senior White House official 97

November 17, 2018 3:00 PM Vancouver lawyer who prosecuted Khmer Rouge leaders welcomes genocide verdict

Lysak’s involvement in the tribunal was almost an accident. After practising commercial law in San Francisco for several years, he did some travelling and ended up in Cambodia in 2008 — just as the tribunal was getting underway. The tribunal’s lead international prosecutor at the time was Justice Canada lawyer Robert Petit and when Lysak asked the fellow 142

November 16, 2018 1:01 PM Scheer backs Brexit despite chaos, says it’s giving Britain back control of itself

OTTAWA—Canadian Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer says his support for Britain’s departure from the European Union is undiminished, despite the chaos Brexit has sown in British politics. The United Kingdom was plunged into uncertainty Thursday as Prime Minister Theresa May’s new Brexit deal with Europe met a rash of criticism. Two cabinet ministers resigned 129

October 30, 2018 1:58 PM WWF says global wildlife populations declined 60 per cent, demands action

Leslie also said Canada has committed to new land protections the size of Alberta by 2020, and if it’s done right, the country could make “meaningful progress” on protecting Canadian wildlife. “But if we squander this opportunity, we will condemn many more species to population loss and even extinction,” she cautioned. Internationally, the organization 86

October 30, 2018 12:08 AM A month without Matthews hurts Leafs in many ways

On the surface, Auston Matthews looks like the laboratory-built vision of the ideal hockey player. A strapping six-foot-three and 220-some pounds, he skates like a dream, shoots like a laser, plays keepaway like it’s glued to his stick. Certainly he’s put up the numbers to justify the fawning. With 84 goals in 155 games as a Maple Leaf, nobody’s scored 168
