** ADVANCE FOR WEEKEND OF APRIL 12-13 ** A Polar Bear rug lies on the floor of the parlour of the Molly Brown House in this photograph taken on Tuesday, March 4, 2003. Titanic survivor Molly Brown may be best known as the "unsinkable" woman whose loud personality and trailblazing politics helped her survive the tragedy 91 years ago. Some say that image, nourished by plays, Hollywood and even Brown herself, neglects many merits of her life. She spoke five languages, ran for Congress and the Senate before women could vote and devoted much of her time to charitable activities _ characteristics often overlooked, says Kerri Atter, director and curator of the Molly Brown House Museum in Denver.

Canmore RCMP have recovered a $30,000 stolen polar bear skin in the scenic Alberta town. 

Around 12:30 a.m. on Jan. 4, RCMP received a report of a suspicious male in downtown Canmore who appeared to be carrying a bear skin rug.

After investigating, police suspect the man may have carried out a break-in at a local business.

Charges are now pending against the man, who is from St. Albert, Alta.
