    Traces of Earth's original crust found in Canadian Shield

    Researchers have found traces of Earth's crust in the Canadian Shield dating back 4.2 billion years, when our planet was in its infancy. Earth's composition is unlike any other known planet or moon, with rocky crusts forming and moving over the surface. Over time, this has forced older evidence of such crusts — both oceanic and continental — deep below the surface.

    Matthew Perry Beat Up Justin Trudeau in the Fifth Grade

    Matthew Perry has a story about Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau that he’s not particularly proud of: “My friend Chris Murray, who was also in the fifth grade in Canada, reminded me that we actually beat up Justin Trudeau,” he confessed on Jimmy Kimmel Live Wednesday. Trudeau’s father, Pierre Trudeau, was serving as prime minister at the time, but Perry doesn’t think that was the reason they picked on their schoolmate. “I think he was excelling in a sport that we weren’t as [good at],” CBS’ Odd Couple star said. “So, it was pure jealousy.” He added, “I think he was the only kid in school we could beat up.”

    No bidders make offers to buy Trump tower in Toronto

    The court-run sale of a downtown Toronto high-rise bearing the name of U.S. President Donald Trump received no initial bids and ownership will likely fall to its main debt holder, a letter from the receiver showed. The court process only indirectly involves Trump, whose sprawling business empire licenses its brand and manages the Toronto property on behalf of the developer, Talon International Inc. But the Trump International Hotel & Tower’s new owner will need to navigate an unresolved dispute over whether they can get out of that arrangement.

    Nova Scotia judge under fire for claiming ‘a drunk can consent’ in sex-assault case

    A Nova Scotia judge is facing a firestorm of criticism after declaring “clearly, a drunk can consent” as he acquitted a Halifax taxi driver of sexually assaulting a female passenger who was so intoxicated that she urinated on herself and passed out in the back of his cab. Justice Gregory Lenehan told the court that while it was obvious the woman was drunk at the time of the incident, and that the accused was “not somebody I would want my daughter driving with,” the Crown had failed to provide any evidence that the complainant did not agree to sexual activity.

    In what's being described as a landmark case, a businessman accused of disappearing from China, after withdrawing a loan there equivalent to $10 million and reappearing in Vancouver in possession of several multi-million dollar Lower Mainland properties, has been ordered to repay the money. In June 2016, lawyers for China CITIC Bank brought an application before a B.C. Supreme Court judge to freeze the assets of Shibiao Yan, who was accused of approving the withdrawal of a 50 million RMB line of credit extended to a company he controlled in China and never repaying it.

Doing nothing is a major reversal that could tarnish the prime minister’s key asset, his sunny image. Here are four key questions about the proposed reforms:
