"The Supreme Court adopted the hybrid model, which considers both parental intention and the circumstances of the children in determining where the children are habitually resident," the Appeal Court said.

'It's been getting to be too much' : Rankin Inlet family seeks relief from overcrowded home

'It's been getting to be too much' : Rankin Inlet family seeks relief from overcrowded home A family in Rankin Inlet is struggling with insufficient housing, despite being on the emergency wait list with the Nunavut Housing Corporation for nearly three years. In those three years, Taqtu Gibbons and her family have moved through friends' and relatives' apartments about 15 times, she said. "I'm constantly looking for a place to stay," Gibbons said in Inuktitut. Gibbons and her partner have a 10-year-old daughter and a four-year-old son. This summer they were staying in a shack just outside of Rankin Inlet that was about 6 feet by 10 feet — just enough room for a bed and a table with a camp stove on it.

DJ Khaled took to Instagram Monday with numerous posts paying tribute to Rankin, his friend of decades.

'Bless up my brother @louie_Rankin,' he wrote. 'Friends 20 years friendship from shottas and forever! Love and prayers for your family.'

Khaled went on to call his late friend 'amazing FATHER,' 'always my brother' and 'the legend.' 

Other notable names such as DJ First Class and Toronto-based director Diggz tweeted memorials to the late artist.
