The history of First Nations in Newfoundland has rarely been a happy one. The Beothuk, the island’s original inhabitants, were wiped out by the early 1800s after centuries of violent clashes with European fishermen and rival Mi’kmaq bands, as well as the effects of disease.

The sad conclusion to be drawn from Charlie Gillis’s article “The new hockey fights” (National, April 14) is that kids’ hockey is now an adult sport. Clearly, we’ve got to get the adults out of the building, or at least behind plate-glass walls—the thicker the better.

It’s not often that Canada’s upper chamber does something praiseworthy. But a Senate committee’s pointed criticism of the Conservatives’ Fair Elections Act seems to have made an impression on the government. Pierre Poilievre, the minister in charge of democratic reform, says the senators’ study, which proposes nine major changes to the bill—including removing measures aimed at muzzling the chief electoral officer and increasing the time robocall firms must keep their records—is the “skilful” product of a “very smart group of people.”

In 2002, Mike Harris stepped down as leader of Ontario’s Progressive Conservative party and opened his succession to an array of singularly bloodless potential successors: Ernie Eves, Elizabeth Witmer, Chris Stock-well.

John Ellis Bush, known by the nickname Jeb, is the second of five children of former president George H.W. Bush. He was the hard-working policy wonk many expected to follow in his father’s footsteps to the White House. When they were kids, his rough-around-the-edges brother, George W., talked about wanting to be a baseball star, but eight-year-old Jeb would tell the family he wanted to be president.

One survivor tried to flee with his 10-year-old son, Oumarou Bouba.

Ding Jian is a sleuth of pleather seat cushions and a gumshoe of grungy floor mats. This Chinese private investigator isn’t concerned with cheating lovers or petty theft. Instead, he focuses on the valuables misplaced in the back of taxis by Beijingers who don’t realize their possessions are missing until their rides are gulped up by the city’s bloated traffic jams.

No one was surprised when Maria Miller, U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron’s culture secretary, was forced to resign from cabinet last week. The scandal-plagued MP’s goose had been cooked ever since she’d stood up in Parliament seven days earlier, and given an astonishingly arrogant 30-second apology, which was not actually an apology at all.

The moment, among the grossest and most memorable in the 2004 documentary Super Size Me, came after Spurlock struggled to eat a Double Quarter Pounder with cheese, seven-ounce fries and a 42-ounce soda.2

ELIZABETH DYKE’S BLISSFUL experience with condo ownership lasted for 13 years, right up until her upstairs neighbours ripped out their carpeting and installed hardwood floors. “The very next day, I could hear somebody walking in high heels right from my master bedroom, through the living room, down the front hall and to the door,” says Dyke, a Toronto employment lawyer who had enjoyed condo life so much, she bought a second unit in her building to use as a home office.

Finding the water level too low to reach, the bird drops pebble after pebble into the pitcher; the water level rises, rewarding the crow with a drink. Turns out this isn’t just a bedtime story—crows really are that smart.

The tiny, tantalizing fragment of papyrus—on which a handful of words record Jesus Christ referring to “my wife”— is not a forgery after all, or so the world’s media have decided. The Gospel of Jesus’s Wife, as Harvard divinity professor Karen King named it 18 months ago when she announced its existence to great controversy, is indeed ancient.

He conducted extensive studies of office workers: identifying their every inefficiency, useless motion and wasted second—in the wild hope that he might, through architecture, correct them.
