Unions rally against Target Discount retailer. Service industry About 27,300 people are losing their jobs as a “If you’re in the service in Canada, this result of Zellers closing industry is the fate that awaits Unionized workers delivered a blistering attack on Target and corporations like it on Wednesday, at a protest in front of the company’s new Canadian headquarters in Mississauga. “We need to fight back against this corporate greed. We need to build a huge movement to take back this country for workers,” said Motilall Sarjoo, president of Mississauga Brampton Labour Council. Sarjoo was addressing a crowd of about 120 people, including union members and leaders of the United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW), the Canadian Auto Workers, the Canadian Union of Public Employees, the Ontario Federation of Labour (OFL) and NDP MP Wayne Marston. The group had gathered to deliver a petition to Target executives, asking them to respect the seniority and benefits

of Zellers employees who are being laid off as Target takes over Zellers leases across Canada as part of a $1.8-billion deal with HBC. An estimated 27,300 employees are being let go as a result of the transaction. About 15,000 of them work in stores being converted to Target stores. Target, which plans to open its first stores in the GTA in 2013, has maintained that it has no responsibility towards the Zellers employees, because it bought only Zellers leases. Kevin Shimmin, a spokesman for the UFCW, said members are not picketing HBC because the legal agreement between HBC and Target states

that HBC cannot take action or comment on the issue. OFL president Sid Ryan said Stephen Harper’s Tory government supports policies that make Canadian workers more “competitive,” which means lower wages, lower benefits, no unions and no pension plan. “Target hiding behind this excuse of a real-estate transaction is wrong,” said Ryan. Anthony Rankine, 31, attended the rally to support his mother, Angela Rankine, a former Zellers employee. “We have to stand up. Young people have to stand up for our parents. We are the future,” he said. torstar news service Office opening • The Target Canada office

One year later, Layton’s legacy lives on in Torontonians’ hearts

Olivia Chow speaks at an event marking the one-year anniversary of the passing of her husband, former NDP leader Jack Layton, in Toronto on Wednesday. MICHELLE SIU/THE CANADIAN PRESS ‘Private’ appointment

Ford didn’t skip Pride flag-raising for official business Mayor Rob Ford wasn’t doing official business during the Pride flag-raising he skipped in June, and his internal itinerary shows that he had, in fact, few appointments that week. Ford has never explained why he missed the June 25 flag-raising, telling reporters

only that he had “already committed to something.” Coun. Kristyn Wong-Tam said at the city hall event that his aides had told her he was “extremely busy.” But his itinerary, obtained through freedom of information law, shows only one appointment for June 25, a Monday. It is listed as “private,” which means it was not related to his job as mayor, and for 12:30 p.m., a half-hour after the flagraising began. TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

New building owner

Pot lounge turfed from Kensington It came as a shock to the regulars and store owner at the Hot Box Café in Kensington Market when they learned their nine-yearold establishment had been given the boot, with little warning. The building will have a new owner starting Oct. 1. “Hot Box Café is an institution,” said Dan Murchison.

Maheroon Mawji felt like she knew Jack Layton. He had danced with her once in 2005, at the Pakistani Community Centre on Gerrard Street East, and she remembers the night. She even has a photo of them together, screened and printed on her white shirt. “He was so down-to-earth,” said the 72-year-old. “He was a wonderful guy.” She felt like she knew him, and that’s why she was here, at Nathan Phillips Square, on the anniversary of his death — scrawling chalk messages to the man who had an uncanny ability to make politics personal. “You r in our hearts, thoughts and prayers,” she wrote, using a drawing to represent the heart, careful not to take up too much space. It was part of a tribute celebration called Dear Jack, which included an evening concert, marking a year since Layton’s death from cancer after he led the NDP to official Opposition for the first time. On the curved wall outside “Unfortunately, because the new owner doesn’t want it here, it has to move; it’s a shame, really.” Murchison, 59, is one of many regulars at the café who could be spotted on a sunny afternoon on the back patio, smoking marijuana from a pipe. Diagnosed with bladder cancer in 2007, he said marijuana, which he has a medical licence to use, is his only medicine. He discovered the café in 2009 and comes nearly every day. TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Quoted

“There’s a great yearning from people. It’s not just about Jack.... It’s the message that we can be a more loving society.” NDP MP Olivia Chow, Layton’s widow

city hall, dozens of messages were dedicated to a politician many knew from afar or not at all: You left us too soon. Young people care. Long live Layton’s moustache. The messages mimicked the spontaneous outpouring of public grief that happened last year when Layton died. For many, the connection clearly remains. “Jack really touched my heart,” said Darlene Lucas, a mental health worker from Parkdale. “He cared for the average Joe.” Quotations from his final letter to Canadians — ending with a call to hope, love and optimism — were everywhere, branded on T-shirts and in literature, marked on walls and the ground. Layton’s family and friends spent the morning at Toronto’s Necropolis Cemetery, where his ashes were interred. TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Friend stunned by support for woman in coma Family and friends of Anna Leibenko had raised $38,000 to help the stranded 24-yearold by Wednesday. The Thornhill resident had been travelling in Europe with friends and was due to return this week. But on Aug. 17, she slipped and fell on a catamaran on the Adriatic Sea, hitting her head on the boat and nearly drowning after she fell into the water. Her condition remains critical and she has been in a medically induced coma in a Croatian hospital, her friends and mother by her side.

Thornhill resident Anna Leibenko Photo supplied

Making the situation worse was that she had no travel insurance. The cost to fly her home by air ambulance was originally quoted at $93,000, although her brother, Artem Leibenko, says now “there might be a company who can do it a bit cheaper.” Artem, 26, is organizing a trust fund and medical transport for his sister — but the family faces a bill that is a “big lump sum of money” growing larger “every day she is in the hospital,” he said. Two days ago, Leibenko

moved her foot when friend Karina Vottchal held her hand. “I was the happiest person,” she said. When told how much money had already been raised, Vottchal was stunned. “It is so great, we feel so grateful, that we have so many special people in our lives,” she said. “She’s going to pull through.” Several fundraisers are being planned for coming days. People wishing to donate may visit the website: helpanna-leibenko.org.

Applause erupted Wednesday as Annaleise Carr stepped into the Camp Trillium dining hall for the first time since her record swim across Lake Ontario last weekend. That feat, which made her the youngest person ever to swim the classic route across the lake, raised more than $135,000 for the camp, which provides a place for children with cancer to forget about hospitals and tests and have fun. Campers at the camp’s Rainbow Lake location, near Simcoe, Ont., crowded around Carr, giving her hugs and asking for autographs. Her father, Jeff, brought a stack of five-by-seveninch photos and a marker so the doting youths could get a memento of the girl the legendary Marilyn Bell herself dubbed the new “Lady of the Lake.”

brother Josh, 18, and little sister Willow, just 18 months old. It costs about $1,000 to send a child to Camp Trillium for a week, meaning that Carr’s feat will buy a week at camp for at least 135 kids with cancer.

“It’s no longer our best-kept secret,” said Fiona Fisher, fundraising director for the camp. She applauded Carr’s swim not only for raising money but also for putting Camp Trillium in the minds of others planning fundraisers, including Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment, which has contacted the camp about an event later this year.

The city had numerous complaints about the spa that was owned and operated by Guang Hua Liu, the woman whose body parts were found in Scarborough and Mississauga. The city’s Municipal Licensing and Standards division began investigating Forget Me Not, on Eglinton Ave. E. near Midland Ave., after complaints were received in early July. City officials repeatedly visited the spa, but the doors were locked with no answer. A licensing official finally spoke to Liu on the phone several weeks ago. She said her business was closed and up for sale. “It appears that it was closed more than it was open,” said Coun. Michael Thompson (Ward 37, Scarborough Centre). City officials found nothing illegal going on. But they weren’t the only ones who noticed the spa never seemed open for business. “I never saw anyone get in or get out,” said Jong Soon Suh, owner of a dry cleaning business in the same complex. torstar news service

Liberals committing $20M to youth programs in bid to prevent crime Queen’s Park. Recent city shootings galvanized politicians, who have vowed to do what they can to stop gun violence Ontario is bolstering crime-prevention programs with a focus on youth — to the tune of $20 million — in an effort to get guns off the streets by trying to prevent kids from turning to crime in the first place. A plan to expand summer job programs and add more youth-outreach workers was announced Tuesday. The multimillion-dollar investment comes on the heels of two deadly public shootings this summer in Toronto. Community Safety Minister Madeleine Meilleur said the government will be taking proceeds of crime and funnelling that money into crime-prevention programs in priority communities in the province. “Crime prevention is only one part of the youth action plan,” she said at the announcement Wednesday. “But it is a critical part because it stops bad

In June, a shooter opened fire inside the Eaton Centre, killing one person on the scene and wounding a second victim who died in hospital days later. Children and Youth Services Minister Eric Hoskins said 35 new youth-outreach workers will be added across the province, 20 of them in the Toronto area alone.

Hudak hints at support for Grits’ teachers’ bill The Progressive Conservatives are willing to work with the minority Liberals to pass controversial legislation that would impose new contracts

on Ontario teachers, Opposition Leader Tim Hudak suggested Wednesday. The Liberals need the help of at least one of the opposition parties on the proposed bill, which would also ban lockouts and strikes. Hudak was cryptic about whether the Tories will provide that support, saying he’d prefer an immediate legislated

wage freeze for all publicsector workers. But he hinted that he might be willing to settle for less, paraphrasing former U.S. president Ronald Reagan. “My approach on these things is if you get half a loaf, you take it, and then you press for more,” Hudak said. He said he also wants to make sure the bill doesn’t

have any “loopholes” that would increase spending, such as contracts that allowed 98 per cent of senior civil servants to get bonuses last year. The New Democrats have signalled they won’t support it, saying it will spark a lengthy legal battle with teachers that could end up costing millions. the canadian press

Harper’s haven? Vast new national park mixes tranquillity and trade A vast tract of mountainous Northwest Territories terrain was christened Wednesday as a new national park — with a twist. Prime Minister Stephen Harper billed it as striking a balance between protecting the environment and growing Canada’s economy. The original Naats’ihch’oh reserve proposal was to protect 7,600 square kilometres from commercial activity. But the final decision instead sets aside just over 4,300 square kilometres of lakes and rainbow-hued mountains about 90 minutes south of Norman Wells. The remaining territory

Let’s have some fun! Students bounce back Montreal march. There’s an unusual festive air to events as holidays end and young protesters take to the streets again They’re baaack! Student protesters burst into the Quebec election scene Wednesday after dropping off the radar in the campaign’s first weeks. Thousands of students marched in Montreal — just as they have on the 22nd of every month for the last six months. The event was peaceful, at times even festive. But in some cases people tore down a number of political campaign posters for different parties. The protests have faded as an election issue, mere weeks after they were attracting international news coverage and dominating the political conversation. The student unrest didn’t even come up once in the only election debate to have featured all four leaders of the biggest parties. Part of that absence has to do with a strategic decision made by many students: most have returned to class, with some citing a desire to avoid making themselves a campaign issue. Premier Jean Charest is accused by opponents of manipulating the calendar to ensure the strikes would be a top-of-mind issue for voters. His emergency law set the mid-to-late August dates for the return to colleges and universities, and then that P 8he/ called 2 1 / an 1 2election , 1 :for 3 1 period. But few students appear to

But that doesn’t mean the issue has disappeared comMpletely; universities are set to reopen in the coming days and it’s unclear how smooth

that process will be. One spokesperson for the more militant student organization, CLASSE, promised the students would continue striking in defiance of Bill 78. He said the action would persist during, and after, the election. The group says about 43,000 students remain on

strike — which is about onetenth of all post-secondary students in the province. The student issue showed some other potential Wednesday for resurfacing as an election issue. The Parti Québécois critic on the issue, Marie Malavoy, has urged students not to pay their fees for the semester. She told Le Soleil newspaper in Quebec City that universities that have sent out tuition bills with the new, higher, amount should have waited. The PQ is promising to scrap the Charest government’s $254-a-year, sevenyear plan for tuition hikes. the canadian press

Tampa. Hurricane could strike site of Republican convention: Forecasts Tropical Storm Isaac is posing a potential threat to next week’s Republican National Convention in Florida, which culminates in the nomination of Mitt Romney for president. The U.S. National Hurricane Center on Wednesday morning said Isaac was expected to strengthen and could become a hurricane by Thursday. Convention organizers knew it was a possibility during the peak of hurricane season. About 70,000 delegates, party officials, journalists, protesters and others are expected to attend. It’s been 90 years since a major hurricane made a direct hit on Tampa, the site of the convention. Florida, historically the nation’s top target for tropical systems, has not been hit by a major hurricane since Wilma in 2005. National Hurricane Center computer models had predicted Isaac would become a hurricane over the next few days, meaning maximum winds must be at least 120 km/h. Some models had the storm striking Florida, including the Tampa Bay area, after moving across Cuba or the Ba-

• Republican and state officials have backup plans in place if the storm makes its way to Tampa, including an evacuation in a worst-case scenario. • A four-day mock hurricane drill was held in May featuring a pretend major storm striking the Tampa area during the second day of the convention.

Jeff Masters, director of meteorology at Weatherunderground.com, said long-range storm track predictions five days in advance are notoriously inaccurate, often off an average of 418 kilometres. But Masters said the climate situation has improved chances that Florida could be in the system’s sights during the Republican event that runs Monday through Thursday. the associated press

U.S. President Barack Obama closes his umbrella as he boards Air Force One before his departure from Nellis Air Force Base in Las Vegas on Wednesday. A new AP-GfK poll shows Obama and Mitt Romney locked in a statistical tie, despite the Republican challenger’s recent choice of conservative Rep. Paul Ryan as his running mate. With less than three months remaining before the Nov. 6 election, 47 per cent of registered voters said they planned to back Obama and Vice-President Joe Biden, while 46 per cent favoured Romney and Ryan. That’s not much changed from a June AP-GfK survey, when the split was 47 per cent for the president to 44 per cent for Romney. david becker/the associated press

The U.S. congressman under fire for making comments about “legitimate rape” and pregnancy said Wednesday that Republican presidential challenger Mitt Romney’s running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan, personally pleaded with him to leave a crucial Missouri Senate race, but the advice went nowhere. Rep. Todd Akin insisted he’s in the race to stay, saying “this is not about my ego.”

What’s in that feedbag? Israel. Biblical park outfits donkeys with wireless routers It was nothing like this 3,000 years ago. An Israeli attraction meant to immerse tourists in an authentic, ancient biblical experience has outfitted its donkeys with wireless routers. At the historical park of Kfar Kedem in northern Israel, visitors decked out in biblical robes and headdresses ride donkeys through the rolling hills of the Galilee, learning how people lived in Old Testament times. Now they can also surf the web while touring the land of the Bible on one of Quote

the oldest forms of transportation. A device slung around the donkey’s neck like a feedbag is actually a Wi-Fi router. The park’s manager, Menachem Goldberg, said Wednesday he hopes the melding of old and new will connect the younger generation to ancient Galilee life while allowing them to share, tweet and snap the experience instantly to friends. He played down the notion that 21stcentury tourists have grown addicted to being online at all times. “You take some pictures, you want to change your picture on Facebook — you can do it,” Goldberg said. Visitor Peter Scherr accessed the Internet while touring the Galilee hills to do some donkey fact-finding with his family. “It has been used as a working animal for 5,000 years,” said the New York native, reading from a Wikipedia page on his iPad.

Japan PM, nuclear protesters remain far apart Safety concerns. Despite meeting, weekly mass rallies likely to continue

Japan’s Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda, right, talks with the leaders of the anti-nuclear protest in Tokyo on Wednesday. Kyodo News/The Associated Press

Japan’s prime minister met for the first time with leaders of weekly anti-nuclear protests Wednesday but rejected their demand that two recently restarted nuclear plants should be shut again. Tens of thousands of people

have been gathering every Friday night outside Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda’s office compound to protest against nuclear power because of safety concerns set off by last year’s Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear crisis. The 11 protest leaders were allowed into the complex for the first time since they started chanting anti-nuclear slogans outside the tightly guarded building in April. “When the majority of the general public opposed the re-

start, you forced it by trampling down on us. It was ridiculous and outrageous,” protester Misao Redwolf told Noda as she sat across from him. “We will continue our protests as long as you keep ignoring our voices.” Noda initially called the demonstrations “big noise,” triggering criticism. He promised the protesters on Wednesday he would listen to people’s views and reflect them in policy decisions. But he did not accept their demands that his govern-

Ecuador’s deputy foreign minister says his government will treat Belarus’ extradition request for a former police investigator with the same respect for human rights that guided it in the case of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.

Marco Albuja told reporters that if Ecuador finds Aliaksandr Barankov’s life would be at risk at home it will apply the same criteria it did in granting asylum to Assange. Barankov won political refugee status after arguing that he fears being killed in prison if sent home because he unearthed high-level corruption involving relatives of President Alexander Lukashenko.

Alleged planner of nun’s murder set free in Brazil Rainforest activism. Rancher was convicted in 2010 of ordering U.S. woman’s death

American nun Dorothy Stang is seen in this 2004 file photo. Stang was shot six rancher charged with being T:6.61” times at close-range in the Brazilian state of Para. Carlos Silva/the associated press one of the masterminds of the

2005 killing of American nun and activist Dorothy Stang. The Supreme Court ruled Tuesday night that Regivaldo Galvao has the right to remain free pending the outcome of his appeal process. In 2010, a jury found Regivaldo Galvao guilty of ordering Stang’s death and sentenced him to 30 years in jail. But he

was freed on appeal. He was imprisoned one year later after a Para state court ruled that he had to start serving his sentence before his appeal process had run its course. Stang was born in Dayton, Ohio, and spent three decades trying to preserve the rainforest and defending the rights of poor settlers who

confronted powerful ranchers seeking their lands in the Amazon’s wild frontier. The northern Brazilian state of Para, where Stang was gunned down with six, close-range shots from a revolver, is notorious for land-related violence, contract killings, slave-like labour conditions and environmental destruction.

Scope over civilians

Military law ruled unconstitutional in Mexico

A Jamaican opposition lawmaker charged with perverting the course of justice is stepping aside from a party post. Jamaica Labor Party legislator Daryl Vaz announced Wednesday that he is taking a leave of absence as the opposition’s spokesman on information and communications technology issues. Vaz is accused of breaching a law while intervening in a traffic violation involving a businessman friend.

Mexico’s Supreme Court on Tuesday declared unconstitutional a key portion of a military law that has broadened the influence of military courts and angered civilian victims. The ruling said a provision of the code that claims authority over crimes committed by soldiers on duty violates a federal law stipulating military courts should not expand their scope over civilians affected by a case.

Can an Army psychiatrist charged in the 2009 Fort Hood shooting rampage be forcibly shaved of his beard before his murder trial? Yes, a military judge said Wednesday. “Forced shaving is not a novel concept in the military,’’ said a judge’s response filed with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces. The accused killer, Maj. Nidal Hasan, has grown a beard to express his Muslim faith. His lawyers have said he

Maj. Nidal Hasan, shown in April 2010, believes not having a beard is a sin. the associated press

won’t shave since he has had a premonition that his death is imminent, and he doesn’t want to die without a beard because he believes not having one is a sin.

Hasan faces the death penalty or life in prison without parole if convicted in the November 2009, attack on the Texas Army post that killed 13 people and wounded more than two dozen others. Last week the appeals court delayed Hasan’s courtmartial, which had been set to start this week with jury selection. The judge, Col. Gregory Gross, has banned Hasan from hearings since he first showed up in court in June with a beard, letting him watch the proceedings on a closed-circuit television in a nearby room. But Gross said Hasan will be forcibly shaved before the trial if he doesn’t shave himself. Army rules prohibit beards, and those who join the military agree to give up certain personal interests. the associated press

Right-to-die advocate’s ‘living nightmare’ ends Euthanasia debate. Tony Nicklinson’s death from pneumonia comes a week after British court rejected his right-to-die request Tony Nicklinson, paralyzed and unable to speak, found life so unbearable he wanted to die. On Wednesday, the 58-year-old Briton got his wish. His family said he died at home of pneumonia. In January, Nicklinson asked the High Court to declare that any doctor who killed him with his consent would not be charged with murder. Last week, the court rejected his request, a decision that Nicklinson said had left him “devastated

Tony Nicklinson the associated press file

and heartbroken.” Nicklinson was a former corporate manager and rugby player who suffered a stroke in 2005 that left him with locked-in syndrome. He was unable to speak or move below his neck and required constant care. Nicklinson communicated mostly by blinking, although his mind had remained unaffected

and his condition was not terminal. Nicklinson had argued that British law violated his right to “private and family life” as guaranteed by the European Convention on Human Rights, on the ground that being able to choose how to die is a matter of personal autonomy. He had previously described his life as “a living nightmare.” One of his daughters said on Twitter that before he died, Nicklinson had asked them to tweet “Goodbye world the time has come, I had some fun.” Police said they would not be investigating Nicklinson’s death. “We can confirm he passed away,” a police spokesman said on customary condition of anonymity. “His death certificate has been signed by a doctor, so it is not a matter for Wiltshire Police or the coroner.” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

German circumcision debate reignites Jewish groups increased pressure on the German government Wednesday to speed up the passage of new legislation protecting the practice of ritual circumcision after a doctor filed a complaint with prosecutors accusing a rabbi of causing a child bodily harm. A debate in Germany over T:10”the Jewish and Muslim prac-

tice of ritual circumcision started after a regional court in Cologne ruled in June that the practice amounted to causing criminal bodily harm to a child. It calmed after the German government pledged to draft new legislation protecting the practice, but flared again this week after a doctor filed the latest complaint with

prosecutors in the southern city of Hof. Even though any German can file such a complaint and it is then up to prosecutors to decide whether to press charges, the Conference of European Rabbis said the legal move showed the need for “immediate action” from lawmakers in Berlin. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Chinese activists return home Disputed land. Homecoming isn’t likely to end feud — Chinese have vowed to make another attempt to occupy islands Hong Kong gave a hero’s welcome home Wednesday to activists who landed on disputed islands and whose video of their scuffles with Japanese police will likely aggravate nationalist tensions further. The seven activists were part of a 14-person group that managed to evade the Japanese Coast Guard in a rusty fishing boat to reach the islands a week ago. The group included two reporters from Phoenix TV, which broadcast video for the first time of the activists’ desperate confrontation with Japanese officers as they landed on the barren islands. Known as Senkaku in Japan and Diaoyu in China, the islands are surrounded by rich fishing grounds and may also be near underwater natural gas deposits. They’re controlled by Japan but also

claimed by China and Taiwan. In the video, six of the activists are seen clambering over the rocky shoreline. The group wades ashore, advancing toward several dozen Japanese police officers wearing riot gear. One of them waves China’s national flag as the officers watch. But as they try to go further, the police block the way. Two of them make a run for it but are tackled by the officers. The whole group was arrested and quickly expelled from Japan in a move seen as an attempt to soothe tensions. But anti-Japan sentiment flared up anyway in China, where thousands protested last weekend in 10 cities, with some carrying banners demanding Japan give up the islands. The activists’ battered boat was greeted by throngs of supporters as it arrived on Hong Kong’s waterfront, where it was also welcomed by the other half of the group who returned by plane earlier. Phoenix also broadcast footage of a Japanese coast guard vessel ramming the activists’ boat to try to stop it from reaching the island. The Associated Press

Ottawa

Xinhua denies spy claims after journalist quits A Canadian journalist says he quit working for China’s news agency because it wanted him to spy on the Dalai Lama in Ottawa. But the Ottawa bureau chief of China’s Xinhua news agency dismissed that claim as “Cold War” ideology. Ottawa-based freelance journalist and author Mark Bourrie makes the allegation against the Xinhua news service in an article published in Ottawa Magazine. The matter will likely revive debate around the longstanding issue of whether Xinhua is an intelligencegathering front for the Chinese government instead of a legitimate news service. Bourrie, 55, said he resigned in April after working for two years for Xinhua in Ottawa because its Ottawa bureau chief, Dacheng Zhang, wanted him to use his parliamentary press pass to gain access to the Dalai Lama’s final news conference, and turn over all notes and materials without writing a story.

Protesters demonstrate outside the court in Ventersdorp, South Africa, on Wednesday at the sentencing of the killer of right-wing leader Eugene Terreblanche. Chris Mahlangu was given a life sentence for the 2010 murder. Denis Farrell/the associated press

Farmworker gets life sentence for killing white supremacist South Africa. White protesters oppose Mahlangu supporters outside courtroom A black farmworker was sentenced to life in prison Wednesday for the brutal murder of South African white-supremacist leader Eugene Terreblanche in a case that has been a source of racial tension in the city of Ventersdorp. About 100 protesters sang anti-white songs outside the courtroom in the city just west of Johannesburg to support 30-year-old Chris Mahlangu,

who had pleaded guilty but argued that he acted in self-defence in what the judge found was a violent dispute over wages. They were opposed by 20 white protesters who carried the dummy of a black man with a rope around his neck and a sign that said: “Hang Mahlangu.” As Mahlangu was leaving the court, the protesters tied the effigy to a pick-up truck and drove around the black crowd. Mahlangu was found guilty for beating Terreblanche, 69, to death with an iron in April 2010. Mahlangu said he feels he did no wrong by ridding the world of a man some called

address to a labour group, but also the first time any Bank of Canada governor has made such an overture. Carney addressed a persistent complaint of those who put the blame for weak exports squarely on the shoulders of the strong Canadian dollar. The manufacturing sector and auto industry have been particularly hard hit in recent years. He noted Canada’s export performance was the secondworst in the G20 over the last decade, with only nine per cent of exports going to fastgrowing emerging markets such as China and India. The structure of the Canadian economy, “unfortunately, is too north-south, not enough east-west in a global sense,” Carney said during a media conference after his speech. While CAW president Ken Lewenza conceded that the dollar isn’t the only factor affecting auto manufacturing, he maintained that the loonie is more significant than Carney suggested. the canadian press

Please don’t leave me, nhl The worst thing about the potential for a cancelled NHL John Mazerolle season is that it lays bare my metronews.ca/voices/ pathetic addiction. I’m hopehe-says lessly hooked on a league that doesn’t care how I feel. Can’t you spare a hit or two for a guy down on his luck, NHL? As I write, labour talks are ongoing. So maybe by the time you read this both sides will have already had an action-movie style “Not partners — friends!” handshake and will soon be enjoying Coca-Cola atop a hillside in perfect harmony. Somehow I doubt it. It looks like the league NHL fan hardship is heading toward its third lockout in two decades, And the NHL is the only which will leave me in withdrawal — sad, shivering league where the holding my head in my referees rediscover the and oversized novelty hands. rule book every 10 years The league can be a coldor so, as if it were an old hearted partner even when running smoothly. Your wedding album. “Wow, it’s favourite team can let you I forgot about this down year after year, while thing!” they say as they teams in the Deep South win despite holding what blow the dust off. appear to be Empty Seat Nights. And the NHL is the only league where the referees rediscover the rule book every 10 years or so, as if it were an old wedding album. “Wow, I forgot about this thing!” they say as they blow the dust off. But turning these labour disputes into some sort of twisted tradition is the cruellest cut of all. There will be lots of detail-laden news articles — pity the poor reporters who chose sports so they wouldn’t have to write phrases like ‘collective bargaining’ — but the facts don’t really matter. All we know is that Rich White Man No. 1 wants one thing and Rich White Man No. 2 wants another, and somewhere along the way somebody will say, “It’s not about the money” and we’ll laugh through our tears. None of the players are using their sticks and jock straps to build makeshift bindles, and if the owners were to start living out of their vehicles they’d still be in nicer digs than my apartment. Catriona Le May Doan will not be walking among emaciated negotiators, asking us to donate. (“Some of them are so weak they haven’t thrown a punch in months.”) Of course it’s about the money. What’s worse, when my drug is back I will accept it without condition as soon as it’s offered, like any true addict. The NHL’s marketing campaign after the lost season could be “Welcome back, sucker!” and I’d say, “Awesome!” And I won’t even be able to give the NHL the middle finger, because my giant novelty hands don’t bend that way.

Weigh-in weighed up

Animal well-being

Animals weighed at annual check It’s time to find out which critter has been gorging. Keepers at a London, England, zoo get out the scales for the annual animal weigh-in this week. Every one of the 16,000 or so animals, across 750 species, including penguins, meerkats, lions and owls, are put on the scales and measured, “to assess their health and behaviour,” a spokesperson at the zoo says. Metro

• Worldwide database. The measurements are recorded into the Zoological Information Management System. They can be shared with zoos worldwide, which zoologists use to compare data on endangered species. • What zoological director David Field says. “This information helps us to monitor their health, their diets and their general well-being.”

These pensive meerkats are certainly weighing in on London Zoo’s annual animal audit. Getty Images

Calling all comic nerds

Fan Expo. Panels feature publishers like DC or Marvel offering sneak peaks and advice for true fans BACKSTAGE PASS

Ian Gormely scene@metronews.ca

With Hollywood circling closer, everyday, comic fans can be excused for feeling like their little subculture is quickly slipping from their grasp — studios are snatching up anything in tights in hopes of finding their next summer blockbuster. But events like this weekend’s Fan Expo gives us fanboys a reason to get out from behind the computer and into the world with our own kind. “We’re in the business of providing live experiences,” explains James Armstrong, Fan Expo’s Event and Programming coordinator. “It’s becoming more rare that you can interact with these people.” While many people attend Fan Expo for the costumes, celebrities and massive market, the diehards come for the panels. Comic, sci-fi and horror cons started life as a way to gather like-minded fans in one place and gush over whatever fictional obsession floated your boat. And, says Armstrong, they remain the heart and soul of events like Fan Expo. “It’s a unique experience,” he says. Panels are generally set up like a theatre, with a head table of guests discussing a theme at the front. Publishers like DC and Marvel or film or video game studios will drop hints or offer sneak peaks while others offer advice to aspiring writers,

Fan Expo is a great place for die-hard fans to meet like-minded people. CONTRIBUTED Web series

Among the latest media to get the Fan Expo panel treatment are web series, episodic programs broadcast entirely online. “It’s not a well known side of entertainment,” admits Armstrong. “It isn’t set on a tight schedule. You watch it when you want to watch it.” Start-ups will often turn to web series as cheap and easy way to join

the Writer’s Guild of Canada — who are sponsoring the panel — and get noticed by TV and film studios. Some series have racked up more than 10 million views for a single episode. “That’s better than most network television shows.” A full schedule of the weekend’s panels is available at fanexpocanada.com/ schedule.

artists or costumers. Best of all, the panels give audience members the chance to ask questions to their

favourite stars or creators. Shifting interests require Armstrong and his staff to continuously update the panels each year. “You have to look for trends,” he says, something that can be quite difficult. First year panels generally cast a wide net, while they’ll hone in on different aspects of a subject over the years. “We’re showing them something you can’t see anywhere else,” says Armstrong. “You can’t just go on YouTube and see this stuff.”

Chicago is Mayor Tom Kane’s town. Portrayed with a commanding ferocity and effortless charisma by Kelsey Grammer, Kane plays the politics game better than anyone, sacrificing family and friends to retain his power on the Starz drama Boss. That’s despite suffering from the neurological disease Lewy body dementia, though his condition is worsening as Season 2 began last Friday. “Tom has discovered there are gaps in his life that maybe he would like to fill in, or at least try to,” Grammer says. “He realizes that he’s not a fully realized human being and only has so many avenues to explore to actually make that different; one being his (estranged) daughter, and even his (emotionally detached) wife.” Despite delivering a withering onscreen stare that reallife Chicago cops have told Grammer “is just like Mayor Daley,” and Kane’s penchant for dirty deeds, the actor insists “there is some humanity available to us to be explored” in the mayor. Of course, the newspaper editor looking to expose Kane’s corruption may not think so

Sanaa Lathan as Mona Fredricks: “Mona is a very smart, politically savvy woman who grew up on the south side of Chicago,” Lathan says. “She grew up in a community that was very disenfranchised. She pursued politics to be an advocate for the people in that community. Kane is really the only one who can do something about (the redevelopment of the neighborhood), so when she has the opportunity to work with him, she takes it.” Jonathan Groff as Ian Todd: “Ian Todd is one of the new employees of Mayor Kane,” ex-

‘TV tourist’ looking for longevity Even as he’s steadily grown a successful career, actor Michael Ealy has always been something of a TV tourist. He visits shows — including recent recurring turns on such high-profile fare as The Good Wife and Californication — but doesn’t put down roots. Even when the 38-year-old has landed longer-term roles, the shows haven’t lasted long — for instance, FlashForward and the Showtime drama Sleeper Cell managed to eke out a combined 40 episodes. So the Maryland native has a simple goal for his new series Common Law, one that doesn’t sound particularly lofty — until you consider his previous experiences in television. “I’d like it to go more than two seasons,” Ealy said in a recent telephone interview. “I haven’t gone more than two

And who are these characters? And I think we had a really good first season considering we really didn’t know. We didn’t. “The Travis I discovered at the end of the season is not

“Magnificently unnerving.”

Michael Strahan is in talks to be named co-host of Live! beside Kelly Ripa. Strahan, 40, a former NFL star and currently a host of Fox NFL Sunday, was in negotiations to be named as replacement for Regis Philbin, according to a source who spoke on condition of anonymity because the source was not authorized to speak about the negotiations. Broadcasting & Cable, citing multiple sources with knowledge of the situation, said ABC was expected to announce him as co-host in early September. The syndicated weekday show has left Ripa without a permanent co-host since Philbin left the show in November 2011. Since then, she has welcomed 59 guest co-hosts,

A spokeswoman for Live! declined to comment on Philbin’s replacement. On Monday, Disney-ABC Domestic Television had said Ripa will officially announce her new partner as he or she joins her on stage for the Sept. 4 broadcast. Strahan, a former NFL defensive star, also headlined a shortlived Fox sitcom, Brothers, in 2009. Philbin, the original Live! host, exited at age 80 after presiding more than 28 years alongside several co-hosts. Ripa became his on-air partner in 2001. the associated press

Fundraiser. Paltrow, Roberts, Swift among stars set for Stand Up to Cancer telethon An A-list cast of celebrities is joining a telethon to raise money and awareness to fight cancer. Gwyneth Paltrow, Julia Roberts, Matt Damon, Samuel L. Jackson and Emma Stone are among the stars participating in the third Stand Up to Cancer telethon, the organization announced Wednesday. Paltrow also is an executive producer for the fundraiser that will be carried commercial-free from 8 to 9 p.m. ET Sept. 7 on the four major broadcast networks, ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC, and more than a dozen cable channels. Musical performances by Taylor Swift, Coldplay, Alicia Keys and Tim McGraw are planned, and more than 25 movie, TV and sports stars will be on hand to take phone pledges, said executive producer Joel Gallen. Laura Ziskin, founder of Stand Up to Cancer and producer of its first two telethons in 2008 and 2010, lost her seven-year fight against breast cancer last year. The Spider-Man movie producer was 61. Ziskin represents “tremendous shoes to fill,” Gallen said. “I can’t really replace Laura, but I’m coming from a different point of view, from a respectful point of view, and continuing the mission she was on.” Hope is the theme for this year’s telethon, Gallen said. It will include information on how to prevent cancer and on the treatment research funded by Stand Up to Cancer, also known as SU2C. The experiences of several patients who are part of Stand Up to Cancer trials will be explored in minidocumentaries that show the progress made in just a few

years of effort, Gallen said. The organization said it has awarded about $120 million in grant commitments to multidisciplinary research Dream Teams and to scientists seeking innovative approaches to end cancer’s role as the world’s leading cause of death. Of the $180 million-plus that has been pledged, some larger donations are being made over a period of several years, a spokeswoman said. Katie Couric, who joined with Ziskin and other women in the entertainment industry to found Stand Up to Cancer, will appear in the telethon. Others taking part include Jessica Biel, Jeremy Renner, Seth Rogan, Masi Oka, Simon Baker and Rashida Jones. Couric lost her husband to colon cancer, while Paltrow’s late father, director Bruce Paltrow, had oral cancer. Some participants, such as Michael Douglas, have fought the disease themselves. Cable channels carrying the telethon are BIO, Encore, HBO, Showtime, HBO Latino, ION Television, LMN, Logo, MLB Network, mun2, Palladia, Starz, TBS, Smithsonian and VH1. the associated press

Nickelback — which also includes Kroeger’s brother, Mike, on bass, guitarist Ryan Peake and drummer Daniel Adair — was named group of the decade by Billboard magazine. Their 2001 breakthrough hit How You Remind Me was the decade’s top rock song, and their bestselling album is 2005’s All the Right Reasons. Lavigne got her breakthrough as a teen in 2002 with her debut album Let Go and the hit single, Complicated. Despite Nickelback’s monster popularity, the group also has a reputation as one of the most hated bands in music. Last year, after they were invited to play at a Detroit Lions football game, an online petition protesting the performance drew more than 55,000 signatures. Kroeger, however, says he only cares about making music for his fans.

Mike Birbiglia’s make-out memories Review. Sleepwalk with Me: and Other Painfully True Stories KILLIAN YOUNG For Metro

Mike Birbiglia is something of a comedic Renaissance man, dabbling in many methods to produce laughter: film, theatre, stand-up, radio and a book. His 2010 memoir, Sleepwalk with Me: and Other Painfully True Stories, has been republished with a new foreword from Ira Glass for the wide release of his movie, Sleepwalk with Me (for which Glass was a co-producer and co-screenwriter). Birbiglia shares traits with some of today’s top comedians. He has Louis C.K.’s intrepid honesty, without the intense cynicism toward relationships. He has Demetri Martin’s low-key personality and subtle delivery. And he has Jim Gaffigan’s all-American appetite.

“I would marry pizza, but it would just be an elaborate ploy to eat her whole family at the reception,” Birbiglia quips. For Birbiglia fans, the book doesn’t contain too much new content, and that’s a blessing and a curse. Readers who are familiar with Birbiglia’s two appearances on Comedy Central Presents and his extended special, Mike Birbiglia: What I Should Have Said Was Nothing — Tales from My Secret Public Journal, will recognize the vast majority of his popular jokes. However, Birbiglia follow-

WE NEED MALES

ers will enjoy seeing how jokes translate from stand-up comedy performances into text, and where Birbiglia places emphases while telling them. Although Birbiglia’s style is often personal — sometimes uncomfortably so — he gains emotional traction with his audience by exploring his familial relationships to a greater extent than he has ever done in stand-up. Those unfamiliar with Birbiglia’s body of work can expect depictions of awkward experiences from his childhood and adulthood that most sane people would strain to repress. What’s best about Birbiglia is that he looks his audience square in the eye, and then proceeds to detail his most embarrassing memories, from his first make-out session to his infiltration of a NASCAR focus group in order to snag some free cookies. This is what makes Sleepwalk with Me so appealing — it’s a no-holds-barred look into the psyche of an average guy, who, through his own modest nature, is exceptionally funny.

J.Lo to get Vegas show? Jennifer Lopez may be the next music luminary to take up residence in Las Vegas with a long-running show, according to Hollyscoop. The entertainment company Live Nation has reportedly approached Lopez about a long-term engagement, and her rep concedes it’s not out of the question, telling the website, “It could very well be possible.”

METRO DISH OUR TAKE ON THE WORLD OF CELEBRITIES The Word

It’s official Prince Harry parties like a professional Monica Weymouth

Lindsay Lohan

This time it’s not her fault

Lindsay Lohan was reportedly questioned by police after jewelry went missing from a Hollywood Hills home where the troubled actress had spent the night, according to TMZ. Lohan was reportedly among several guests who stayed overnight after a

small party at the home Sunday night. The next morning, the house’s owner claimed expensive jewelry had been stolen and called the police. Sources says Lohan was very co-operative with police but maintained that she had nothing to do with any theft.

scene@metronews.ca

Prince Harry is learning the hard way that “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas” doesn’t apply to drunk, naked members of the Royal Family. Harry, you see, had a way better weekend than the rest of us. After spending Friday afternoon poolside, Harry and friends stopped by the bar of the MGM Grand, where they met some girls — with cameraphones — who were, in fact, interested

in partying upstairs with a prince. According to TMZ, it was a game of “strip pool” that led to the photos of Harry — completely naked except for a necklace and wonderfully awkward tan lines — hugging an equally naked girl from behind and holding his crotch. Harry stuck around Las Vegas long enough to challenge Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte to a race through a pool full of girls in bikinis (he lost, in some very vague sense of the word), but was quickly summoned back to Buckingham Palace when the photos went viral. Now, we don’t envy having to explain the rules of strip pool to Queen Elizabeth. But all in all, we’d say his weekend was well worth the international hangover.

Tom Cruise’s five-year marriage to Katie Holmes is officially over after a New York judge signed off on the divorce settlement earlier this week, according to E! News. Completed in a remarkably short amount of time, the finalization comes just

a month and a half after Holmes initially filed for divorce from Cruise. “Tom is very happy and relieved that he is moving forward,” a source says. “His priority is being a good father, and this settlement will make sure that continues.”

More car trouble for Amanda Bynes Amanda Bynes was reportedly involved in yet another car accident, but this time it looks like it wasn’t her fault. According to TMZ, Bynes’ rental car was rear-ended by another driver Monday night, though the other driver reportedly claims they did not have enough time to

react and avoid a crash after Bynes made a reckless move. “The collision was minor and information was exchanged, therefore, no police report was taken,” a law enforcement official tells the website. Bynes was driving a rental car because her BMW is still being repaired from her last fender-bender.

DISCOVER BOATLOADS OF HISTORY AT THE CANADIAN CANOE MUSEUM Long before Adam Van Koeverden and Mark Oldershaw paddled into Canadian Olympic history, Aboriginal Peoples, trappers, traders and voyageurs charted our history in canoes and kayaks. And nowhere is this history more alive than at the Canadian Canoe Museum in Peterborough. A short drive northeast from the GTA along Highway 35/115, the Canadian Canoe Museum is a national heritage treasure housing the world’s largest collection of canoes, kayaks and paddled watercraft. Located in the heart of the historically

important Trent-Severn Waterway region, the museum is a testament to the creativity, ingenuity and tenacity of the explorers who navigated Canada’s waterways. From the white birch bark canoes of Aboriginal builders to skin kayaks, wooden boats and racing vessels, learn how the canoe has defined the Canadian character and spirit. View more than 100 canoes and kayaks creatively exhibited alongside interactive galleries and workshops. And if you are experiencing Olympic withdrawal, be sure to check out the paddle

Pizza without those pesky delivery costs Melissa d’Arabian is a home economist for a new era. Actually, she’s more of a chief financial officer. That’s because the Food Network host is as adept at balancing ledger sheets as she is at getting dinner on the table. It’s a handy skill that comes with being a trained financial strategist, and turned out to be an unlikely backbone for her culinary career. Her basic message to thrifty home cooks? Stretch your food dollars by treating your kitchen in terms of profit and loss. “As the manager of a household you’re actually running a fairly complicated business,” she says. “There are simple lessons we can take from the business world and apply to our homes.” Forecasting Successful businesses project what their upcoming costs and revenues will be. A “rapid review” of a month’s worth of grocery receipts will give the home cook an idea of what’s being spent, d’Arabian says. Once you have that number, figure out how much you’d like to save per month then do some quick menu planning. “Glance around and see what needs to be used up,” she says. Then buy only what you need to fill out the meals already lurking in your pantry.” Marketing You have to promote dinner to your kids? “You don’t have to, but you’ll be a lot more success Ingredients Start to finish: 45 minutes • 1 tbsp olive oil, plus extra for dough • 1-lb bag pizza dough • 1 large very ripe tomato, cored and chopped • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar • 1 tsp lemon juice • 1/4 tsp kosher salt • 6 fresh basil leaves, torn • 4 oz fresh mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced and quartered • 2 cups arugula or other baby greens

The project overview

Location and transit

Lush grounds and mature trees surround Bluwater’s three, eight-storey buildings, which encompass just 204 suites. Classic yet modern, the architecture steps back on the lake side to afford water views from most of the suites. This design also creates oversized terraces and a spacious balcony.

Just a short jaunt to the Queen Elizabeth Way/ Highway 403 gets you where you’re going fast. Commuters can hop the GO train at nearby Appleby station, which brings you into the downtown core within the hour.

Exploring highrise capitals: Panama City Bryan Tuckey

President and CEO of the Building Industry and Land Development Association (BILD) can be found at twitter. com/bildgta), (facebook.com/ bildgta), and bildblogs.ca.

My previous two installments of Rooftop Surfing explored the parallels between Toronto and other cities around the world that are known for their soaring high-rises. After taking a look at the towers of Hong Kong, we explored the Chicago skyline, finding similarities and differences in both examples. Today, I’d like to examine yet another international city that has recently experienced a boost in high-rise construction, and one that has the most prominent skyline in Central America — Panama City. The capital of the Republic of Panama is home to more than 880,000 residents throughout a number of districts that are then divided into 23 smaller boroughs. While some still display the more traditional housing built during the construction of the Panama Canal, since the year 2000, high-rise condominium construction has been on the rise, mainly due to strong overseas demand. The City’s new, modern neighbourhoods have formed an impressive, dense skyline

filled with some of the world’s tallest residential buildings, the tallest of which is the Trump Ocean Club International Hotel and Tower, completed last year. This sailshaped tower stands 70 floors tall, with the roof topping out at 293 metres — just 20 metres more than our own Trump Tower in Toronto. It’s interesting to point out that Panama City has had a number of skyscraper projects recently cancelled, citing financial problems. Several towers up to and exceeding 300 metres in height have recently been placed on hold, with their status currently unknown. At the moment, there are over 200 new condominium buildings under construction in Panama city, and while the investment boom of the early 2000s has passed, the high-rise market is said to be going strong. Part of the reason behind its success is the nearing completion of Panama City’s new subway system. The city’s first subway line will stretch for 14 kilometres and will be made up of 16 stations. This is similar to the subway expansion in the GTA, where new transit corridors have paved the way for new development opportunities, particularly in Vaughan, which has seen tremendous growth around the proposed subway line. No matter where I look, I keep seeing parallels between the GTA and some of the world’s most prominent cities. To me, it says that we really do live in a great one!

While walking around downtown Toronto, you can’t help but experience a strong sense of urban social interaction. It’s up close and personal. There’s a street-level, curb-side appeal that’s lacking in the suburbs. Suburban life has its own allure, albeit an entirely different experience where the car is king, and even to grab a quick coffee and newspaper requires a drive to the mall. Savvy condo seekers now take into consideration the “walkability factor” in choosing a condo. Think of walkability as a measurement of how inviting an area is to pedestrians. It can affect the value of your investment depending on where it’s located and how convenient it is. There’s even a rating system for walkability. The website walkscore.com can help you find a walkable place to live. Walk Score uses a rating between 0 and 100 that measures the walkability of any address. There’s also a transit score and a bike score. Prominent Toronto realtor, analyst and condo author Brian Persaud explains that “Revitalization of the downtown or ‘walkability’ is vitally important. Watch for average condo prices going down as more condos are being built in poorlyplanned 905 neighbourhoods that push down the weight of downtown Toronto.” For some time, city council has been trying to wean itself off car dependency. Popular initiatives like car sharing and BIXI bikes provide year-round alternatives for

Condos like 18 Yorkville in downtown Toronto have a high walkability factor.. Located at the bustling intersection of Yonge and Bloor, surrounded by amenities with close proximity to rapid transit, this residence rates high in street appeal. Duncan McAllister/for metro

travellers who opt out of owning a car. City councillor Adam Vaughan told Metro last March about the high level of pedestrian identification in his downtown ward. “More people walk to work in this area than any other part of the city, so we’re actually building a lot of condos now with almost no parking in them because people actually don’t need their cars to exist in this part of the city.” The folks at Jane’s Walk maintain that walkable communities “are better places to live, have higher real estate values, promote healthier lifestyles and have healthier levels

of social cohesion.” They conducted a walkability workshop and polled residents on the factors that affect the pedestrian quality of their neighbourhoods. The discussions revealed concerns over snow removal, transit, street furniture, bike lanes and accessibility. One workshop participant said that “There’s a big post in the sidewalk right there and I can’t get the stroller by. And my father, he’s in a wheelchair. That sidewalk is not accessible.” You can access a walkability checklist on their website at Janeswalk.net and test your own neighbourhood.

groove and tap into place using a scrap piece of flooring to protect the planks. Ensure pieces fit snugly and there are no gaps. Stagger the joints of flooring by offsetting new rows 6 – 8 inches so the joints at the end of the planks aren’t lined up in a row — this helps for stability and appearance. The last plank will need to be cut to fit.

DIY ideas. Updating the floors in your home can add instant beauty and an updated look without completing an entire renovation

Why laminate flooring? Laminate flooring simulates the look of a hardwood floor and is easier to install and maintain than other flooring surfaces, with a much lower cost. Being made from plastic, it is designated for light domestic use and may not be as durable as other flooring options. Before Installation Both temperature and humidity can affect the laminate flooring planks, so be sure to acclimate them in your home for 48 hours.

If you don’t plan to get rid of your TV and furniture, the simple answer is to dust. Studies have shown that consumer products, not industrial releases, are the likely source of flame retardants or, PBDEs (polybrominated diphenyl ethers) building up in people and animals. These toxic chemicals — found in furniture, carpets and electronics — have been linked to cancer, adverse effects on the developing brain, and immune and reproductive problems. They are also persistent and bioaccumulative, which means they build up in the environment and our bodies (and in the bodies of animals like polar bears and killer whales). That’s right, your TV, curtains and couch shed PBDEs. Then these chemicals contaminate household dust, posing a substantial health risk to people. In fact, house-

hold dust is now recognized as one of the most significant sources of childhood exposure to toxic substances. Studies show that dust is really a chemical soup with low levels of flame retardants, phthalates, metals like lead, mercury and arsenic, and pesticides. Sure, some of these chemicals are tracked in from outside, but most originate from the wear-and-tear of consumer products. You’ll also find higher levels in dryer lint and in the vacuum cleaner bag. As well as dusting more often — I suggest using a 50:50 mix of vinegar and olive oil to polish and clean — leave your shoes at the door. Shoes track contaminated dirt into your home, with everything from pesticides to lead. The Door Mat Study suggests wiping shoes on a mat and taking them off at the door. And leave your runners, soccer cleats and bike shoes at the door instead of storing them in a bedroom closet. It’s a simple step that can reduce lead dust in your home by 60 per cent.

ask you to overlap the sheets or ensure that they butt against each other. Installation Now it’s time to start laying the planks of your new laminate floor! For the best appearance, lay planks parallel to the longest wall in the room. Place half

inch spacers against each wall and push the first plank up against them, with the groove toward the wall. These spacers create an expansion gap so the floor can expand and contract without warping or buckling, and will later be covered by base moulding. As you lay down each plank, match the tongue and

Thresholds and Base Moulding Thresholds are used between the end of the flooring and any open doors. They come in different styles to accommodate the kind and height of flooring.

Hello Terry, First, let’s start with a wonderful luxurious bed making “recipe”. As a Butler this is what we would use for all of our special guests at the house. Once you try this, you will wonder how you ever slept without it. As a man, you may wish to consider going with all-white sheets or a masculine colour that matches your bedroom. White sheets are easier to wash and remove stains, and patterned and colour sheets will fade over time. Pillows (as per the size of bed and how many you like)

A bed, desk, chairs, rugs, lamps and storage system all cost less than $200 when purchased with online classifieds. Kijiji.ca

Finding the perfect space to call home is one of the many stresses of heading back to college. Thankfully, there are more resources than ever to help you find great deals and build a place to make your own. Using online classifieds like kijiji.ca makes it easy to find new and gently used items to make the space feel like home. By applying common sense and some simple design tricks you can create a

And, get creative with storage solutions. For example, repurpose old family heirlooms like a great big steamer trunk or vintage luggage.

unique space on a student budget: Find the perfect piece Unique finds start with unique keywords so searching online classifieds using words like “vintage” almost always does the trick. Furniture from the ’50s to the ’70s is on trend right now and vintage pieces like tables and chairs are stylish and surprisingly affordable. Think outside the box with art as well; do something different like hanging a small, patterned rug on your wall (it also acts as a sound barrier).

Customize with colour and shape Show off your personality with unique décor items in bold colours and shapes. Tangerines and oranges are everywhere right now. To offset the colourful furniture, stay consistent with your basic colours and keep your walls monochromatic. Don’t forget that if you love the shape of a piece of furniture, you can always change the colour with an inexpensive coat of paint.

Practice smart spacesaving Organization is the key to making a small space look amazing. When searching for shelves and other storage items, don’t forget to think vertical. A tall bookcase or some strategically placed hooks make it easy to clear the clutter from your floors.

Updating is uber-easy Small changes can have a big impact, especially if you’re moving into an old space. Look to add a new pop of colour by simply swapping out accent pillows and small décor items each year.

NHL negotiations go dark for a day NHL. Labour talks put on hold with time running out on Sept. 15 deadline for new collective bargaining agreement NHL collective bargaining talks were cancelled Wednesday after top executives from the league and players’ union held an impromptu morning meeting to discuss the status of the negotiations. NHL commissioner Gary Bettman and deputy commissioner Bill Daly spent about two hours with players’ association executive director Donald Fehr and his brother Steve Fehr, the union’s No. 2 man.

Further issues

Beyond the monetary issue at the heart of talks, each side has prioritized a secondary cause. •

The NHLPA has made it clear that it would like to see an increase in revenue sharing and proposed the creation of an industry growth fund that would see $100 million

“I think system-related proposals and economical proposals are the most critical issues and probably the issues where we have the widest divergence of views currently,” deputy commissioner Bill Daly told The Canadian Press in an interview.

contributed each year for struggling teams. •

The NHL is largely happy with the current economic system, but has made no secret of the fact it would like to see the end to heavily front-loaded, long-term contacts.

“I’m all in favour of spending as much time as possible trying to bridge those gaps.” The clock is ticking. The current collective agreement is set to expire Sept. 15 when the NHL says it will lock out the players if a new deal hasn’t

been reached. Formal meetings were postponed until Thursday morning. NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr said he didn’t “know what’s going to happen for sure (on Thursday).” There is a significant gap between the two sides’ proposals. The union put forth an offer that includes a smaller percentage of revenues for players over the next three seasons in exchange for an expanded revenue sharing program. The league’s proposal called for a 24 per cent decrease in player salaries — accomplished by lowering the union’s share of revenue — while introducing new contract restrictions, including a five-year cap on contracts.

Horoscopes

Aries

March 21 - April 20 You seem so relaxed at the moment that others may think you no longer care, but that isn’t true. Find ways to let loved ones know you are still there for them, even when your head is miles away.

Taurus

April 21 - May 21 As Mars moves into the partnership area of your chart a lot of excitement will be generated in one-to-one situations. It will amuse (and delight) you when you realize so many people want to get close to you.

Gemini

May 22 - June 21 You may find yourself at odds with people you work with today. No matter how much pressure they put on you to back down, you must not give in. You are right and they are wrong. It’s just that simple.

Cancer

June 22 - July 23 Don’t wait for other people to make the first move. Make it yourself and leave those you live, work and do business with in no doubt that you’ve got your act together. It’s time to get serious about your ambitions.

Leo

July 24 - Aug. 23 As Mars moves into one of the more sensitive areas of your chart today, you will be forced to confront people who have been giving you a hard time. Be direct, but listen to their side of the story as well.

Virgo

Aug. 24 - Sept. 23 After a long period of being held back, you are at last free to pursue what interests you — regardless of what others might think or how much it might cost. Go a little crazy today. You owe it to yourself.

Crossword: Canadiana

Libra

Sept. 24 - Oct. 23 Don’t waste your time on trivial issues. Now that energy planet Mars is leaving your sign, you have to get serious about how to make best use of your resources. They’re not unlimited, you know.

Scorpio

Oct. 24 - Nov. 22 Over the next few days, you will find that many more things go well for you, including those things you thought you would never master. Mars in your sign gives you the kick you need to be more active and ambitious.

Sagittarius

Nov. 23 - Dec. 21 You won’t be quite so relaxed and easygoing today and tomorrow. Mars in the most sensitive area of your chart means you’ll tend to see the negative more than the positive. Maybe, in the short-term, that’s no bad thing.

Capricorn

Dec. 22 - Jan. 20 What you do for others today will come back to you in some form in the very near future. Go out of your way to help people in need, and your own needs will be taken care of too.

Aquarius

Jan. 21 - Feb. 19 Mars crosses the career angle of your chart today, firing the ambitious side of your nature. Whatever it is you decide to do, it must be huge. Don’t limit yourself to petty triumphs — go for the big one.
