Aymen Derbali sat in a wheelchair and described

how seven bullets destroyed his life − his words de-

who sat only a few metres away.
Mr. Derbali addressed the court during a sentenc-

men at a Quebec City mosque last year. As Mr. Der-

Bissonnette sat to his right, watching from a

Gallery: Quebec, Montreal

galleries raising money
to buy David painting

The federal institution said it was immediately interested in

owning the piece.
“The National Gallery has the most comprehensive collec-
tion of French art in Canada with major works from the 17th,
18th, 19th, 20th and 21st centuries; a glaring exception is an im-
portant picture by David, a key figure in French art,” Marc
Mayer, director of the National Gallery, said in a statement on
“Acquiring the Saint Jerome painting would enhance our
collection in very important ways.”
The National Gallery said the French neoclassical painting
would have drained its annual $8-million acquisition budget
and it could not find support from its network of private do-
nors. The gallery said it learned in 2017 that the church had
approached two foreign museums about buying the David,
and that one expressed interest and “had the funds“ to buy it.
The National Gallery said its board decided to sell a valua-
ble painting to raise the funds for Saint Jerome, which the gal-
lery considered to be of greater significance to its collection.

The Commonwealth is also facing calls to take action
against Cameroon over violence and human-rights abuses in
that country’s English-speaking region. The Cameroon gov-

heavy-handed tactics in putting down protests. President
Paul Biya will be at the summit and he could come under
pressure from other leaders.
Some politicians in Britain also want the British govern-

the country has committed against its former colonies over
the decades, including not joining the Commonwealth in
sanctions against South Africa during the apartheid era.
“This week would be an appropriate moment to correct that
historic mistake, and would send a wider signal to our Com-

terms – as the ‘British Commonwealth,’ ” British member of
Parliament Emily Thornberry said.
There are some encouraging signs for the Commonwealth.

election of President Adama Barrow last year, which ended

Calgary City Council votes to continue Olympic bid

Organizers have

and run a deficit


Calgary City Council voted on

Monday to keep a potential Olym-

for a fall plebiscite on the issue.
Two council votes kept alive

week provided a glimpse of the terrain on which it
will be fought.
It is murky and ugly. With polls suggesting the right-of-

CAQ and the sovereigntist Parti Québécois are once again a-
froth about identity.
The latest manufactured outrage centres on Sondos Lam-
rhari, a 17-year-old Montreal-born student who wants to be a
police officer when she graduates, and who happens to wear
a hijab. She appears to be the only such student in Quebec
but hey, there are political points to be scored.
PQ MNA Agnès Maltais coyly imagined a scenario where a
Muslim woman calls police to report a beating after refusing
to wear her hijab, and opens the door to find an officer wear-
ing one. Her dog-whistle hypothetical relied entirely on de-
meaning and false stereotypes about Muslim men.
Not to be outdone, the CAQ’s Nathalie Roy intoned “a pa-

Ms. Roy that in 1996 multiple courts upheld a federal govern-
ment decision allowing Sikh RCMP officers to wear turbans.

do dozens in the United States, Scotland and Australia.

He’s engaged to me,

but pregnant with her




The question

I met my boyfriend 10 months ago and now we are

planning on getting married. Problem is, he got his
girlfriend before me pregnant. She is keeping the
baby. He told his mom about it but was scared to
tell me. However, I found out later myself through
WhatsApp on his phone. He truly does love me and
I know it. But now his mother has told me to stay
away from her son and that he already has some-
one he will marry. I called my boyfriend and told
him about this and he said, “I’ll handle it.” Please
help me. I am lost.

The answer

There are so many red flags here I can barely see

the (metaphorical) field.
Red flag #1: Him acting like getting his ex-girlf-
riend pregnant is no big deal and doesn’t really
have a lot to do with him, something that can be
quickly and easily handled.
I’ve said before I hate it when the verb “to father”
is used as a synonym for “to inseminate.”
As in: “Celebrity X fathered a child with his nan-
Not yet he hasn’t. After Celebrity X changes a
thousand diapers; tries to spoon goo into the kid’s
screaming, tomato-red face; teaches the child to
ride a bike; rushes the kid to the hospital; spends
endless, sleepless nights worrying about its future –
then, maybe, just maybe, at his funeral, when the
sweet release of death has finally relieved him of
parental anxiety, can we say Celebrity X “fathered”
the child.
And, if he has a shred of decency and a moral
compass at all, your fiancé is on the hook to “fa-
ther” this child in similar fashion for the rest of his
life – at least part-time. It’ll be constant and never
stop. Can you handle that?
But for me, perhaps the biggest red flag is he
avoided telling you about it. That’s a pretty big mat-
zo ball to keep up his sleeve. “Oh, by the way, forgot
to mention, another woman is having my baby.”
If he could seriously attempt to keep that as a
secret, it doesn’t bode well for the future. What else
will he hide/lie about?

Inside the Messy Transformation

of Tim Hortons by Marina Strauss

Society of American Business Editors and Writers

Congratulations to Report on Business magazine’s Marina Strauss on her SABEW

Award. This prestigious honour is part of the Best in Business competition, which
recognizes outstanding business journalism from around the globe.

Over months of relentless reporting, Strauss pieced together what was happening
inside Tim Hortons in the wake of its takeover by the private-equity firm 3G Capital.
Her investigation was instrumental in the iconic chain’s franchisees launching a
class-action lawsuit against the parent company, which used details from Strauss’s
article in its complaint. A few months after the story was published, the president of
Tim Hortons stepped down to take on a new role. Strauss’s tenacious work ensures
Globe and Mail readers are always in the know on important stories and their impact.

them – perhaps by learning about their values and crafting
messages that fit.
Simplicity also helps. Research has shown that it’s best to
break complex arguments down into shorter communica-

the source is honest and credible, and they have a sense of
shared interests.

Desiree Linden records

shocking win in Boston

After slogging through just a few miles of icy rain and a near-
gale headwind that made her feel as though she was running
in place, Desiree Linden decided she’d seen enough of the
Boston Marathon for another year.
“My hands were freezing, and there are times where you
were just stood up by the wind. It was comical how slow you
were going, and how far you still had to go,” Linden said.
“At six miles I was thinking, ‘No way, this is not my day.’ ”
she said. “Then you break the tape and you’re like, ‘This is not
what I expected today.’ ”
A two-time Olympian and the 2011 Boston Marathon run-
ner-up, Linden decided to stick around, outlasting the weath-
er and the rest of the field to win the race’s 122nd edition on
Monday in 2 hours 39 minutes 54 seconds. That was more than

An Associated Press review of

to declare its anti-LGBT law as a
risk factor and provide a remedy,
appearing to flout stringent new

“Morocco’s human-rights re-

Morocco knows too well is a crime
on its soil,” Ahmed El Haij, presi-
dent of the Moroccan Association
for Human Rights, told the AP.
“It is evident that if Morocco
was to host the World Cup, LGBT
people coming to watch the
games will face a lot of discrimina-

protect them nor will it be able to
commit in preventing measures
that could be taken against them
