It had the capability -- and, most likely, the culpability. After a thorough investigation, Human Rights Watch says the Syrian regime is almost certainly responsible for the chemical weapons attack in a suburb of Damascus.

Pros and icon cons. The Quebec government finally introduces its controversial charter of values -- and the provincial Liberals say their objections are more than symbolic.
