Driver leaves dead woman at Surrey, B.C., care facility; delivers her slumbering 87-year-old roommate to morgue. Dozy driver failed to realize "sleep like the dead" just a simile. So, for example, is "thick as a brick." SHOK & KICK Labatt and rival Molson hit Canadian market with caffeinated beer, because, gosh, nothing is as endearing as a wide-awake drunk.

Jeff Weise was a baby-faced loner, a Minnesota kid who just didn’t fit in on the small Red Lake reservation where he was sent a few years ago to live with relatives. His father had committed suicide; his mother was in a Minneapolis nursing home with brain injuries from a car accident.

When Canada turns 150 in 2017, more than half the faces in greater Toronto and Vancouver will be visible minorities, especially Chinese and South Asian, according to new projections from Statistics Canada. Across Canada, one of every five-between 6.3 million and 8.5 million people-could be a member of a visible minority by 2017.

SUMMIT Jean Chrétien was never invited, and for a time it looked as if Paul Martin would miss out as well. But the PM finally did get to tour George W. Bush’s Crawford, Tex., ranch, along with Mexico’s Vicente Fox, who has also had his differences with the U.S. President, particularly over Iraq.

Balancing on shifting pack ice, fishery officers and over 30 volunteers from along Trinity Bay, Nfld., rescued seven trapped white-beaked dolphins, slinging them to a more open harbour nearby. At least four of the airbreathing mammals perished in the bay.

RACISM A new poll by the Ipsos-Reid firm says one in six, or roughly four million Canadians, have had personal experience of racism. Seven per cent of respondents said they would not welcome someone of a different race moving next door. SENATORS Paul Martin filled nine of 16 Senate vacancies with a bit of minority government flourish.

There are still two big unanswered questions about the fateful March 3 shooting on James Roszko’s farm. Did any of the four RCMP officers slain that morning return fire? And how did Roszko get inside the Quonset hut? He was seen 18 hours before, driving away from the farm.

HOW BRUTAL is British Columbia political life? Consider Liberal Premier Gordon Campbell, who has survived—so far, and notwithstanding a disastrous drunk driving conviction—his first term in office. When he goes to the polls on May 17, he’ll be the province’s first premier in 22 years who is able, or willing, to seek re-election.

THE RELENTLESS TERRY FOX

IT WAS 5 A.M., just west of Sudbury, and Terry Fox was having his first fight of the day. I'd yet to meet the guy, except for a friendly nod as he left his motel room for the Marathon of Hope van to take up his run where he’d stopped the day before. Terry’s pal Doug Alward, unsung hero of the run, warned me the night before not to talk to Fox first thing in the morning.

IT STARTED WITH A SUDDEN BOLT, shooting down his right leg like an electric shock. The year was 1997— a warm summer evening—and nine-year-old Matthew Bendoritis was sitting at the kitchen table, eating supper in the roomy bungalow his grandfather built on the family farm near Thorsby, Alta., 50 km southwest of Edmonton.

YOUR MOTHER WAS RIGHT. Sometimes life just isn’t fair. For years, studies have confirmed that attractive people get all the breaks. Teachers pay more attention to their good-looking charges, as do doctors and nurses. Juries are more apt to acquit, and voters are more likely to elect, the handsome and the beautiful.

ABOUT 130 KM south of Cancun—spring break’s beer-bong and beefcake capital—is Tulum, a quiet Mexican town known for its Mayan ruins and cabana-style coastal hotels where electricity is a frill. Tourists tend to be hippie-ish types who plan vacations around sweat lodges and curative massage techniques with slightly threatening names like temazcal and reiki.

Penelope Casas’s La Cocina de Mamá: The Great Home Cooking of Spain will stoke the growing interest in Spanish fare, with recipes from both renowned chefs and ordinary families in every region of the country.

But he told the two researchers he had been a reluctant conscript. Bocage was born in 1887 in Algiers, across the murky Mississippi from New Orleans.
