Love is in the air at this time of year. It’s also in store windows, which are bursting with red and pink hearts in hopes of attracting lovestruck shoppers.

Downtown Montreal’s new flagship Victoria’s Secret store is awash with enough hot pink and racy red displays of corsets, G-strings and bustiers to make any guy blush. David’s Tea has its sweetheart collection and “honey i dew” flavours on display. Restaurants are promoting lovers’ prix fixe menus to spice up the romance.

Australia’s top court decides in favor of trade detention centers

Wed, 2016-02-10 13:16

On a flight back from Moscow in 1992, following meetings with parliament members and the late Mr. Yegor Gaidar, then finance minister, I wrote up the tongue-in-cheek conversation I had with them at the time, when they all complained about Russia having only its natural resources to sell.  Please bear with me how this episode is linked to Australian highest court recent decision to export “asylum seekers” to detention centers in Nauru, a minuscule, isolated island with few thousand inhabitants in the midst of the Pacific.
