These alternative lenders, which make up about 1.5% of Canada's mortgage market, drew investors looking for high returns as interest rates hit rock bottom in recent years.

A Spanish judge has ruled the death of Angola's former President Jose Eduardo dos Santos in Barcelona in July was from natural causes, discarding foul play, and allowed the release and repatriation of his body, the court said on Wednesday. The Carmen Varela and Molins law firms representing dos Santos' daughter Tchizé dos Santos had earlier successfully requested a full autopsy citing alleged "suspicious circumstances" of his death, without providing evidence, and asked for his body to be buried in Barcelona. The firms said they would appeal, arguing the judge is not competent to rule on the case as there is a separate legal process related to dos Santos' death.
