Battered boats

Photo by JEFF STOKOE/Advocate staff

With winds blowing at 60 km/h and gusting to 90, the waves on Sylvan Lake were crashing against the east end of the lake at Lakeshore Drive Wednesday morning. Along the length of the beach several boats that had torn loose from moorings ended up battered on the beach. This catamaran rescued by Trevor Burns, John Umlah and Dave Schirru broke free of its boat lift structure and was damaged as it collided with other boats at the Sylvan Lake Catamaran Club spot at Petro Beach. After this boat was safely up on shore the men pulled in several other boats that were also in danger of being battered by the wind and waves.

Twister rips past farm buildings CLEANUP BEGINS THROUGH ALL CENTRAL ALBERTA AS IN TUESDAY’S RAIN AND HAIL STORM BY LAURA TESTER ADVOCATE STAFF Several properties in Mountain View County are cleaning up after a suspected tornado ripped through the area during Tuesday’s intense storm. Eyewitnesses reported seeing the tornado touch down about 13 km south of Olds, northwest of Didsbury, at about 2 p.m. Ryan Morrison, manager of infrastructure projects and technical services for Mountain View Coun-

ty, said several farm buildings were damaged. Some siding and roofs on houses were ruined. Didsbury RCMP and local firefighters checked on residents in the area to make sure they were OK. A number of trees were ripped down as a result of the storm’s fury. Damage was fairly localized. “We started clearing trees from about 3 p.m. to about 6 p.m. (on Tuesday),” said Morrison. The municipality has already spoken with representatives of the provincial government’s emergency financial aid program.

“Right now, they want everyone to go through their private insurance companies and see where that goes,” said Morrison. “A lot of times the insurance companies put the pressure on the government to provide assistance.” At Sylvan Lake, volunteers were busy on Wednesday morning pulling power boats and sailing catamarans being battered against the shoreline due to intense winds.

Parole Board he’ll never drive again BY LAURA TESTER ADVOCATE STAFF A young Central Alberta man said he has no desire to ever drive again after killing a Red Deer couple as they drove home in February 2010. According to Parole Board of Canada documents obtained by the Red Deer Advocate, Chad Mitchell Olsen, 25, of Sedalia told the parole board on June 8 that he had driven a vehicle in the past when he didn’t have a valid driver’s licence. “You (Olsen) said this would not occur in the future as you no longer have any desire to drive,” said the parole board’s written decision. “Given the circumstances of the current offences, you have expressed that you don’t have the right to drive again.” Olsen pleaded guilty in April 2011 to two counts of impaired driving causing death after Brad and Krista Howe, both in their mid 30s and parents of five children, were killed on the city’s south side during the early morning hours of Feb. 7, 2010. He was driving at nearly three times the legal blood alcohol level when he sped through a traffic light and hit the Howes’ car. The parole board did express some concern that Olsen planned to return to the same location where the fatal car crash occurred.

Program teams seniors with college students

RED DEER ROYALS PERFORM

BY CRYSTAL RHYNO ADVOCATE STAFF Plans are quickly taking shape for the city’s Home Share program where seniors become roommates with college students. Since being awarded $245,000 in June through the national New Horizons for Seniors program, Family Services of Central Alberta and its project partners have formed a steering committee, hired staff and begun to sort out the details of its Generations Project. A main component is the internationally recognized Home Share project that matches seniors who have an empty room with a college student who needs affordable housing. The student helps the senior with some type of work and in exchange, he or she will receive reduced rent. Dawna Morey, Generations Project co-ordinator, said the main priority is putting the application process in place for students. Next week the steering committee will meet again to hammer out more details. “We’ve heard from seniors already,” said Morey. “Over the whole course of the (three-year) project, the minimum amount that we said we would match would be 45. We have no perceived anticipation of what that could be.” Morey said they could end up with much more in light of the anticipated housing crunch in the city. Morey said they want to ensure the matching is a positive experience for both the student and the senior. The screening and matching processes will be in place before the end of July. Another part of the project is community workshops on topics such as prevention of elder abuse and helping seniors become resilient, to be led by a senior and a college student. Those taking part in the Home Share project must attend some of the workshops. “We understand the urgency with the (upcoming) school year,” said Morey. “We’re putting together all those plans and . . . at the same time looking at the workshops and putting the materials together.” Partners in the project include the Golden Circle Senior’s Resource Centre, Red Deer College Students Association and the Alberta Council on Aging, Central Alberta. The three-year project will begin in Central Alberta and expand to Southern and Northern Alberta in the ensuing years. crhyno@reddeeradvocate.com

HEALTH: Success stories at individual clinics

STORIES FROM A1

STORM: Some flooding Some erosion was also occurring on trails along the shoreline as winds raised waves. Flooding occurred at parking lots, businesses and along streets in Red Deer when the heavy downpours hit Tuesday. Tom Warder, Environmental Services Department manager for the City of Red Deer, said the sudden storm caused some flooding in low-lying areas. Some vehicles were almost immersed fully in water underneath the 60th Street overpass. “We’ve got pumps that clear out those underpasses, but they can’t keep up with heavy storms like that,” said Warder. “They take a while to clear.” Detention ponds also fill up and take a while to drain, Warder said. Warder wasn’t aware of any damaged municipal infrastructure. Tenants in the basement of the Empire Building along 48th Street and just off 49th Avenue were assessing flood damages. Petro Sabengele, executive director of Central Alberta African Centre, was inside his office on Tuesday when the water gushed in. He estimates the water was about 25 to 38 cm deep. A vacuum truck company was removing the water on Wednesday. Sabengele contacted the insurance company on damages that included items on the floor. “I hope the landlord will replace the carpet to enable immigrant (or) refugee children to resume their weekly activities at our centre as usual,” Sabengele added. ltester@reddeeradvocate.com

Horne, like Saher, said there have been success stories in individual clinics. “A lot has been achieved . . . in different ways,” said Horne. “It took a lot of commitment on health professionals to start working in teams and offering these programs. I don’t read (the) report as a criticism of their work.”

PAROLE: Drinking a core element in socializing They expected there would be significant media coverage, which the board felt could lead to Olsen being exposed to stressful situations in the community. “You (Olsen) told the board that you have learned to accept other people’s decisions,” says the decision. “You realized that you have made very poor decisions and the impact on the victims, their families and others is severe.” Olsen was originally given a sentence of two years and three months. The Crown appealed and Olsen’s jail sentence was lengthened to three and a half years last October. Two months later, on Dec. 16, 2011, much to the shock of the Howe family, Olsen was granted day parole and allowed to leave Bowden Institution. The parole board states that drinking was a core element of how Olsen socialized. He has realized that he cannot have even a single drink, as it would likely lead to more, and that he doesn’t think ra-

veered into traffic and was struck and killed by a truck. The father of the 20-year-old woman had been riding his bike with her when she was hit on Highway 7 just west of Okotoks. She died at the scene. The road was closed in both directions for about two hours while investigators interviewed witnesses. Police say they still want to talk to motorists who saw the accident. They have not yet determined if any charges will be laid. tionally when intoxicated, according to the written decision. “You (Olsen) spoke openly and genuinely at your day parole hearing and it was evident to the board that you were committed to sobriety so that a similar action would not occur,” says the document. In its written decision, the parole board said that day parole would be extended for three months. The report also says that Olsen has “maintained positive conduct at the halfway house and followed all the rules and regulations.” “You (Olsen) were initially involved in psychological counselling to assist in your transition, but this has been discontinued,” says the report. The board also noted that Olsen has demonstrated the ability to adhere to conditions of day parole and has shown motivation to get re-established successfully in the community. A significant sign that he is committed to pro-social change is demonstrated in his abstinence from alcohol, says the report. The Correctional Service of Canada is now recommending granting full parole, and that Olsen’s case management team indicates that Olsen presents a low risk to re-offend. Another hearing will be held in August regarding full parole. The document also shows that Olsen plans to live with his fiancee when he is granted full parole. She is viewed as a “reliable community contact.” “You (Olsen) also continue to have a strong network of pro-social family and friends that offer support,” says the report. The report also mentions that Olsen was recently served with a civil lawsuit in the amount of $3.5 million, made by the children of the Howes. The parole board states that Olsen’s job has offered him the opportunity for advancement and an increase in income. His hope is that this will assist him in making payments regarding the lawsuit. Olsen also has a goal of attending school in engineering to be able to become more financially capable. ltester@reddeeradvocate.com

Province coughs up cash for Memorial Trail BY SUSAN ZIELINSKI ADVOCATE STAFF Town of Sylvan Lake will receive an additional $1.7 million from the province for its Memorial Trail project. The money will be used to upgrade four intersections to address the impact of making Memorial Trail into a two-lane paved road from 60th Street east to Hwy 20. Originally, the town was looking for $2.2 million to upgrade four intersections — Hwy 20 and Memorial Trail, 50th Street (Main Street) and Memorial Trail, Hwy 20 and 11, and Hwy 11 and 781 — and the province refused to pay. After discussions with the town in June, the province decided to provide a total of $1.7 million for the intersection upgrades. “Alberta Transportation out of the Red Deer office had a closer look at the intersections that were identified for upgrades and revised the number downwards to $1.7 million,” said Sylvan Lake Mayor Susan Samson on Wednesday. “We’re very comfortable with their calculations and scope of work.” The town will receive half the $1.7 million this year and half next year. “If we have to go into our own reserves and be paid back next year, so be it, because that’s how important this project is to the Town of Sylvan Lake, the residents and the travelling public.” Samson said the road and intersections will be completed this year. Work has already begun. “It’s critical. Memorial Trail right now is a gravel road and in some areas does not even exist.” Memorial Trail has been a concern for local residents as it is the main thoroughfare from west to east for people heading to Red Deer since changes at the Hwy 11 and 781 intersection made it right-in, rightout only. The trail was very narrow for vehicles passing from opposite directions and had almost become undrivable because of worn down conditions. Upgrades at intersections on Memorial Trail at

Viking Projects trackhoes excavate for the $4.5-million Memorial Trail construction between 50th and 60th Streets in Sylvan Lake Wednesday. 50th Street and Hwy 20 will include merge and turning lanes for better traffic flow. Left turn lanes at Hwy 11 and 20 will be reconfigured. “At the 781 intersection, we’re building an acceleration lane so that people leaving right out west-

bound to Eckville and Rocky areas have the ability to accelerate and join traffic,” Samson said. The original $4.5-million project was approved in 2010 to build the two-lane Memorial Trail. szielinski@reddeeradvocate.com

Study aims to cut horse deaths

Construction contract awarded for police training college FORT MACLEOD — After six years of promises, planning and politics the provincial government has awarded the construction contract for a police training college in southern Alberta. Bird Construction has been selected to build the $122-million college in Fort Macleod, with work to begin this summer and finish by August 2014. Mayor Shawn Patience said the college will be a big boost to the economy of the town and the surrounding region, which largely depends on agriculture. “This is a promise made good and there is a lot of relief and a lot happiness as people find out about this,” Patience said Wednesday. “For a small town of 3,000 people it is going to have a tremendous impact.” The Alberta Public Security and Law Enforcement Training Centre is to train provincial sheriffs, municipal police officers, corrections guards and other security staff. The college was first announced by former premier Ralph Klein’s government in 2006, but faced numerous delays. The project has been up and down the agendas of three different premiers and four solicitor generals over the years.

Pharmacists get expanded powers, including prescription renewals EDMONTON — Pharmacists in Alberta can now renew or alter prescriptions, give injections and authorize medication in a medical emergency. The expanded powers came into effect Sunday as part of what the government says is its plan to improve primary health care. Pharmacists will also be allowed to create care plans for patients such as diabetics who may need help understanding how to use their medications. Health Minister Fred Horne says druggists will be paid for the seven new services they are providing from money the government is saving on generic drugs. Those costs are dropping 10 per cent, meaning the government will save about $85 million this fiscal year. Alberta has over 4,300 licensed pharmacists who fill about 33 million prescriptions a year.

BY THE CANADIAN PRESS CALGARY — John Walters is in his first year on the professional chuckwagon circuit and already knows how painful losing a horse can be. The rookie driver from Delburne is allowing his team to be part of a study by the University of Calgary that is measuring the heart rates and electrical activity of chuckwagon horses. It’s hoped the findings could eventually reduce the number of animal deaths. “It’s very emotional. We had one that we lost with a heart failure two hours after the race ... last year,” Walters said Wednesday as he prepared his team for a training run. “As a family you sit there and cry. They’re family to us right? They’re our children now that our children are grown up.” The study involves the university, the Calgary Stampede and the Moore Equine Veterinary Centre. Lead researcher Renaud Leguillette and his team are using electrocardiogram (EKG) equipment to monitor horses before, during and after their morning exercise. Selected horses competing in chuckwagon races at the Calgary Stampede are part of the study. Leguillette said he became interested after several cases over the years in which horses died from heart attacks after competing. “When I saw that I thought there must be something we can do for these horses and the first thing to do is to try to understand if there are some risk factors and to see why it could happen and then try to give recommendations to prevent that,” Leguillette said. “We want to know what the effect of cumulative racing is on the heart function of these horses. We were concerned about the sudden death problem that has happened at these rodeos.” The data collected will also provide veterinarians with scientific information about when it is physically best to run a horse and when it’s best to rest the animal. There are 100 chuckwagon horses in the study,

Leguillette said he has already determined the animals are extremely fit and their stress levels remarkably low. The Stampede introduced changes last year aimed at making chuckwagon races safer for both horses and competitors. The move came after six horses died in 2010 — two of heart attacks.

YOUNGSTOWN — A village in east-central Alberta has had to declare a local state of emergency because of too much rain. Youngstown Coun. Ken Johnson says almost 180 millimetres of rain fell in one overnight period last week and another 25 millimetres fell on the weekend. Johnson says the water has forced the local diner to close because of damage to its foundation and almost every basement in town is wet. The village has lost power to its pumping station so it has had to bring in vacuum trucks to haul away sewer waste. The problem is that drains were overwhelmed by water flooding the highway.

Oda’s fall into an ethical ditch Usually, when people witness firsthand the suffering and injustice meted out to the world’s poorest people, the common reaction is a time of sincere introspection. We see it all the time, among people of every age — especially those who have signed up for a stint of charity or relief work abroad. When they return to their normal, comfortable lives, people who have confronted true poverty and injustice become more frugal themselves, more compassionate, more aware of their own privileged lives. Often, even a little guilty. Why did this not happen for Bev Oda? Upon the announcement of her resignation as the federal minister of international co-operation, Oda made herself unavailable to the press, but did post an odd comment on her website: “As the minister for international co-operation, I have had the opportunity to witness the hardships of the world’s most vulnerable peoples and have witnessed the great compassion of Canadians for those in need.” Compassion from Canadians, but a

OURVIEW GREG NEIMAN curious detachment from the former minister. Oda needed no introduction to the harshness of history. Her mother was interned during the Second World War, when the Canadian government was rounding up people of Japanese descent, and confiscating their property. Her father started out as a labourer on a sugar beet farm. She must have understood some of their experience and some of their sacrifice for her and her education. It seems a prime background for a life of political activity. But the compassion, the drive to bring more justice to our social makeup seem absent. Quite the contrary, as a minister of the Crown, her resumé speaks more of scandal and acquisitiveness than generosity. It’s not just the luxury hotel upgrade, the $16 glasses of orange juice, or the $1,000-a-day limousine service in 2012 that mark her career. Oda has been suspected of unseemly behaviour

around power and money for years. In 2006, just before the government was to announce a major review of broadcasting rules, Oda planned a fundraising dinner for broadcast executives. When the event became broadly known, it was cancelled, but her office had already taken a number of donations from business concerns who were about to be affected by changes in government policy. Oda’s penchant for luxury travel at taxpayer expense likewise goes back to 2006, when she attempted to bill the government for $5,500 in limousine rides to attend the Juno Awards. After the Liberals raised a stink about it, she paid back $2,200. In 2011, she was investigated for the kind of activities that would land other people in jail. After a long campaign of pressure from the opposition, she admitted to directing a staff member to add a handwrittten annotation to a memo that had already been approved and signed. The annotation added the word “not” in the margin of a recommendation for

funding for faith-based advocate for social justice KAIROS. “Not” was a direct reversal of approved process. It is contempt of Parliament. She was saved from expulsion and official disgrace by the fall of government in a non-confidence vote. And she won the following election, was reinstated in cabinet completely free from having to learn from her career’s near-death experience. The rest of her tenure is the stuff of legend. The featherbedding only became more extreme, her pattern of denial followed by half-hearted apology more predictable. Eventually, even she had to acknowledge she was a political liability, and two weeks ago — depending on your sources — she either resigned or was told to leave. As of the end of this month, Parliament will no longer have Bev Oda as MP and an ethical black hole. It’s a pity. Someone who truly could understand the gap between those who have much and those who have very little might have made a difference. Greg Neiman is an Advocate editor.

LETTERS Care for the weakest, most vulnerable Two statements made by Shirley Challoner require a response: ● “The cuts are also inconsistent with Canadian values. Do we want a society that will not care for the most vulnerable among us?” We already have a society like that. The most vulnerable among us would be the unborn babies who are given no chance for life or any other humane or ethical choice, as we in Canada kill almost 100,000 babies every year through abortion. We call it prochoice, but there is no choice for these precious lives. 2● As Gandhi once said, “A nation’s greatness is measured by how it treats its weakest members.” My Canada would treat its weakest members with care! The truth is that those precious unborn babies (not simply fetuses) may be killed at any stage of development from conception to birth and, unfortunately, this is legal in Canada. Remember, not all laws are moral — it was also legal to kill Jews in Germany in the 1940s. Mother Teresa once stated that until we value the most vulnerable of all, the unborn, our value of all life will continue to decrease. She seems to have been prophetic. If we truly care for the weakest members, or the most vulnerable in our society, let’s begin by giving these unborn babies a chance for life. Donald Ottosen Red Deer

We must discuss future of seniors housing now FUDGING THE VACANCY RATE NUMBERS IS NOT A GOOD PLACE TO START BY ARLENE ADAMSON SPECIAL TO THE ADVOCATE A report released this week on the state of retirement housing spaces for seniors in Alberta from the Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) shows a healthy 11.3 per cent vacancy rate for standard spaces in the province. But what the Seniors’ Housing Report does not include is almost as important as what it documents. Unfortunately, not all non-profit affordable seniors’ housing providers were included in the vacancy census, which focuses on for-profit facilities, and non-profit facilities that include non-subsidized units. In other words, the most affordable options for seniors’ housing, and the most likely to be in demand amongst lower-income seniors looking for both independent and supportive living options, were excluded from the rates. For example, at Calgary’s Silvera for Seniors, a non-profit which provides subsidized seniors’ housing to lower income Calgarians, the vacancy rate is currently 4.1 per cent — a significant difference from the more than 11 per cent listed in the report. And the demand for affordable seniors’ housing is only expected to increase dramatically in Alberta as the baby boomers retire over the coming two decades. But do we really need to worry about affordable seniors’ housing, here, in Alberta, home of the highest household family income in the country? Many feel that baby boomers, especially in Alberta, are well prepared for retirement. Unfortunately, the evidence shows this is not the case. According to a 2011 TD Canada Trust survey, only seven per cent of Alberta boomers feel very wellprepared for retirement. As of 2008, only 35 per cent of Albertans have private pensions, and according to a 2012 BMO study, only 42 per cent of Albertans contributed to RRSPs in the previous tax year.

As an alternative to saving, many Alberta boomers are relying on the equity in their homes to fund their retirement. By selling and cashing out on the equity increases in their homes, many are, or plan to, invest the money and live off the returns. The concern here is that both the OECD and Moody’s recently noted the real possibility of a real estate bubble in Canada — that is, that home prices may drop significantly in the coming years. Add to this, the volatility of oil prices coupled with the continuing low price of natural gas, and such returns are by no means a slam dunk. More worrying still is that a significant percentage of boomers will retire while still holding mortgage debt. According to a 2011 TD Canada Trust report, 21 per cent of Albertans are looking at just this kind of scenario as they enter their golden years. We really have to hope that Albertans were giving a tongue-in-cheek response to the 2011 TD Canada Trust survey when 31 per cent of them said they are relying on winning the lottery to fund their retirement.

wave of demand in Alberta for affordable seniors’ housing. Even if the rate of seniors in need of affordable housing remains the same over the next two decades, the sheer number of boomers retiring will mean more subsidized units are required. Currently, the Alberta government has 9,928 spaces available for supported seniors’ housing. There is no doubt that this number will need to be increased over the next few decades, while at the same time, existing housing stock will require renovating and renewing. Boomer seniors will also demand much more in terms of space and available amenities than seniors of past generations. They will want to stay involved in their communities and continue to lead active and healthy lives. By doing so, they will inevitably live longer, but may also have more complex needs as they age. How will Alberta meet this demand while also remaining fiscally prudent? The possible solution requires creativity and innovation. The Alberta government will need to partner with existing non-profit affordable housing providers, which are knowledgeable about the current and emerging needs and desires of lower-income seniors. They can also help rally Alberta’s generous philanthropic community to support this equally worthy cause. In order to provide much-needed capital, the government must also look at bringing corporate for-profit developers into the mix — in collaboration with non-profit agencies and donors — to build at the pace required to meet demand. The result could be a completely new and improved way to fund, build and design affordable seniors’ housing. Given that the first boomers turned 65 last year, the time to start these discussions is now. Arlene Adamson is the CEO of Silvera for Seniors, a non-profit organizations which provides a home to over 1,500 lower-income Calgary seniors. She is also co-chair of the Seniors and Special Populations Sector Housing Committee, and on the steering committee for the province’s Housing Access Link.

Hostage recounts ‘five minutes of shock’ BY THE CANADIAN PRESS TORONTO — The kidnapping of four aid workers in Kenya began with minutes of terror as gunmen pounced on the group in a well-planned mission driven by money rather than ideology, one of the rescued hostages said Wednesday. In one of her first interviews since her ordeal, Qurat-Ul-Ain Sadazai, of Gatineau, Que., said it quickly became apparent the group had been targeted for abduction. “They came with guns. They started rounding up people, pushed one into our car, and they got in the car,” Sadazai told The Canadian Press from Nairobi. “It was five minutes of shock.” Sadazai, 38, was snatched at gunpoint along with fellow Canadian Steve Dennis, 37, of Toronto, and two colleagues last Friday from the huge Dadaab refugee camp inside Kenya near the Somalia border. The group’s driver was shot and pulled from the car and it was only later she found out he’d been killed. Once the initial fright passed, Sadazai said she was able to size up the situation and, because kidnappings “happen for a reason,” she no longer feared for her life. “We are OK, we are alive and now we can take it from here,” she said she thought. Their captors drove them away, then made them get out and start walking by night — about 70 or 80 kilometres in Somalia. Sadazai said her crisis training helped her get

through the ensuing three-day ordeal in which one of her captors was also killed. “Mentally, you are in some ways prepared,” she said. “As aid workers, we do know that there is a risk always and we are in areas that are high risk — this is something that happens and you have to work with it.” She did expect it might be weeks, or months, before the situation would be resolved. Two abducted Spanish aid workers, for example, have been missing for eight months. The kidnappers didn’t say what their plan was as they meandered toward the Somali border, crossing late Sunday, but she said they were likely motivated by money.

“We were not clear on their objectives,” Sadazai said. “(But it had) very little to do with ideology or issues of fundamentalism or Islam.” The captors, who hid the four by day, treated their captives well, feeding them sachets of humanitarian supplements given to children and making sure they had enough water. The captives had no idea where they were ultimately headed but trackers, aided in part by Dennis’s large shoe prints, tailed them to a spot about 40 kilometres inside Somalia. The rescue, when it came as the group sat and rested early Monday morning after yet another night of walking, was just as sudden as the initial kidnapping. Gunfire erupted. “We didn’t know what was happening. We just ducked and were lying on the floor,” Sadazai said. “We’re the Kenyan authorities — we’re here to rescue you,” she cited the soldiers as saying. The captors fled — one was shot dead — and the group was bundled into a car and driven back to the Kenyan border. Sadazai, who is married, said she plans to take 10 days to visit her parents in Pakistan before returning to continue her work with the Norwegian Refugee Council at the Dadaab camp, home to about 460,000 refugees. “It hasn’t changed any of my plans,” she said of the kidnapping. “I’m still committed.” Also kidnapped and rescued were Norwegian Astrid Sehl, 33, and Glenn Costes, 40, a Filipino, who was shot and injured during the initial kidnapping.

Police confirm human head found in park Jun Lin’s MONTREAL — Police confirmed Wednesday that a human body part found in a Montreal park is indeed the missing head of Jun Lin, a major break in his murder case that will help bring some closure to his family. Lin, 33, was killed and his body was dismembered in late May in a particularly gruesome slaying that made international headlines. CAUTION: GRAPHIC CONTENT MAY DISTURB SOME READERS. The rest of the computer science student’s body had been found except for his head — and Montreal police had repeatedly declared its recovery a priority. A spokesman for the force said detectives were notified of the match Wednesday following a laboratory analysis, which confirmed that a body part uncovered in Montreal’s Angrignon Park on Sunday was Lin’s head. “All of the body parts have been found,” Const. Raphael Bergeron said. Bergeron said the Chinese national’s family was informed of the development. With the help of sniffer dogs, officers found the head on the edge of a pond in the sprawling, west-end park. Police have indicated they were acting on a tip, but they have declined to reveal the source of the information. Lin’s torso was found locked in a suitcase a few days after his death, while other body parts were mailed to offices of political parties and to two Vancouver schools.

Luka Rocco Magnotta, a former stripper and porn actor, has pleaded not guilty to a charge of first-degree murder in the killing and will appear in court next year. The discovery of Lin’s head will bring some peace to his family, who travelled to Montreal from China following his death on May 25. At a private memorial on June 25 in Montreal, Lin’s mother, Du, described the pain felt by his loved ones. “We dare not imagine how much suffering Jun underwent, how much horror he felt on the day he was murdered,” she said in the eulogy, a copy of which was provided to news media by Concordia University, his former school. “Our hearts are broken and bleeding. Every day we live like walking dead without a soul.” The mother also expressed her anger toward her son’s killer. “We hope to bring the monster who murdered our son to justice and we hope he will get the punishment he deserves,” she said. Those who knew Lin, a believer of Buddhism, have described him as a responsible, caring person as well as an excellent student. Lin’s death attracted waves of sympathy from the public. Shrines filled with heartfelt messages to Lin written in Mandarin, French and English were established near Concordia and at the convenience store where he worked as a part-time cashier. A fund was created to help the family pay for their travel expenses and Concordia established the Jun Lin

same city before it could be delivered to the Liberals. His other hand and foot arrived at the Vancouver schools about a week later. The stomach-churning details of the slaying, and the subsequent international police search, whipped up a storm of media interest around the world. Magnotta, 29, was arrested in Berlin following an international manhunt that began after Montreal police issued an arrest warrant for his alleged connection to the killing.

BRIEFS

Tory MP says donation allegations hurting family name PETERBOROUGH, Ont. — Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s parliamentary secretary, Dean Del Mastro, who is under investigation by Elections Canada, says recent media reports alleging his family was involved in a donation reimbursement scheme are baseless. The reports have alleged that a company owned by Del Mastro’s cousin, David Del Mastro, reimbursed its employees for contributions to his campaign. Under the Elections Act, it is illegal to conceal the source of a political contribution. Speaking at an event in his riding of Peterborough, Ont., on Wednesday, Del Mastro said the allegations have taken a toll on his family, which runs a business in this community northeast of Toronto. “(The business) has my father’s name on it — I take it very seriously,” he said. “So when my name is thrown around in the media, especially with allegations that have no process, you have to understand — this is a very unfair thing.” Elections Canada alleges that Del Mastro, who normally defends the Conservatives against accusations of dirty electoral tricks, exceeded his spending limit during the 2008 campaign and then tried to cover it up.

Victim a good neighbour, devout Christian BY THE CANADIAN PRESS

ELLIOT LAKE ROOF COLLAPSE

ELLIOT LAKE, Ont. — A capacity crowd packed a church in a bereaved northern Ontario community Wednesday to pay their respects to one of the victims of a deadly roof collapse at a local shopping mall. Rev. Paul Conway said more than 320 people came to Our Lady of Fatima parish to pay tribute to Doloris Perizzolo, who was remembered as a good neighbour and devout Christian. The 74-year-old was one of two women killed when a section of roof came crashing through the Algo Centre Mall on June 23. The accident crippled local commerce in the small community, touched off a criminal investigation led by the provincial police force and sparked a public inquiry ordered by the province’s premier. Perizzolo was eulogized by a long-time friend who shared memories of growing up side-by-side and regaled the audience with anecdotes of her friend’s kindness and consideration as a neighbour, Conway said.

Mourners also celebrated Perizzolo’s faith, he said. “They said she was a good lady, a faithful lady who believed in God,” he said. Conway said he did not know Perizzolo personally, but urged the community to maintain hope in the face of a senseless tragedy. Outrage over the collapse prompted Premier Dalton McGuinty to order a public inquiry late last week, drawing support from the opposition. The community deserves answers about both the condition of the mall before the collapse as well as the search and recovery efforts that were temporarily suspended due to safety concerns, opposition MPPs said. Residents have complained that the mall was in shabby condition before the cave-in and have questioned the speed at which rescuers tried to reach those trapped in the

rubble. Police have also launched their own investigation into the accident, though Ontario Provincial Police spokesman Sgt. Pierre Chamberland wouldn’t comment on a report that the investigation stems from information about the building’s record of unaddressed maintenance problems. “The information we have received has made it prudent for us to launch a criminal investigation,” Chamberland told a news conference Wednesday. The Ministry of Labour paid six visits to the mall over the last three years, the latest one being in January when it received a complaint about a leak in the rooftop parking garage. The inspector went to the site and found it covered in snow, making it difficult to determine the origin of any leaks, a spokesman for Labour Minister Linda Jeffrey has said. The inspector found no health and safety violations and no orders were issued. The ministry is also conducting its own probe, but has said its investigation will not look into the cause of the collapse.

Fantino promoted to fill Oda’s vacant cabinet post BY THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA — Prime Minister Stephen Harper swiftly shuffled his front benches Wednesday following the resignation of embattled International Co-operation Minister Bev Oda. The hole created by Oda’s resignation on Tuesday had been expected to be filled later this summer in what could have been a wide-ranging shake-up, but ended up being only a minor change. A spokesman for the prime minister said Wednesday’s small change is the only one necessary and no further shuffles are

planned. “That’s it. There is not going to be anymore. Everybody has got their portfolios, they have a lot of work in those portfolios,” Andrew MacDougall said. “A lot is ongoing and the prime minister in particular wanted continuity.” The lack of a major cabinet shuffle prompted critics to accuse the Harper government of being blind to problems in their midst. Oda had been one of those problems. She was embroiled in a series of scandals through her years in government, culminating recently in revelations of spending excesses at a conference in London.

She resigned under intense pressure from caucus and from the public. She was replaced Wednesday by Julian Fantino, the government’s front man on the fumbled F-35 file. His responsibilities as associate minister of defence were handed off to New Brunswick MP and Minister of State for the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency Bernard Valcourt. “These changes to the ministry ensure continuity as we focus on creating jobs, growth and long-term prosperity,” Harper said in a statement. “Mr. Fantino and Mr. Valcourt bring strong leadership experience to these important positions.”

No more foreign workers for employers linked to sex trade CALGARY — The federal government is no longer allowing employers linked to the sex trade to hire strippers, escorts and massage parlour workers from outside the country. Immigration Minister Jason Kenney says permits for temporary foreign workers will no longer be processed if applications come from sex-related businesses. He says the government wants to protect such workers from being exploited or abused. The measure is part of the government’s plan to combat human trafficking. Kenney says Canadians want an immigration system that is open and fair — not one that can be used to exploit people. The move is effective immediately.

MONTREAL — A lawyer for a former judge convicted of murdering his wife is in a Montreal courtroom today trying to obtain his client’s release. Jacques Delisle was found guilty by a jury last month of shooting Nicole Rainville to death in 2009. The 77-year-old Delisle is believed to be the first Canadian judge to be convicted of firstdegree murder. Lawyer Jacques Larochelle told the Quebec Court of Appeal that his client should be released pending an appeal of the conviction. Larochelle is arguing that Delisle is not a flight risk, is not a danger to reoffend, that he had a blemish-free past and that he took care of Rainville for years. Delisle’s trial heard that Rainville was suffering from partial paralysis and that the accused wanted to move in with his mistress.

‘Missing cornerstone of physics’ discovered HIGGS BOSON COULD HELP EXPLAIN WHY ALL MATTER HAS MASS ‘WE’RE REACHING INTO THE FABRIC OF THE UNIVERSE IN A WAY WE NEVER HAVE DONE BEFORE. WE’VE KIND OF COMPLETED ON PARTICLE’S STORY . . . . NOW WE’RE WAY OUT ON THE EDGE OF EXPLORATION.’

BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

The phrase “God particle” was coined by Nobel Prize-winning physicist Leon Lederman, but it’s used by laymen, not physicists, as an easier way of explaining how the theory got started. Incandela said the last undiscovered piece of the standard model could be a variant of the Higgs that was predicted or something else that entirely changes the way scientists think about how matter is formed. “This boson is a very profound thing we have found,” he said. “We’re reaching into the fabric of the universe in a way we never have done before. We’ve kind of completed one particle’s story . . . . .Now we’re way out on the edge of exploration.” The discovery is so fundamental to the laws of nature, Incandela said, that it could spawn a new era of technology and development the way that Newton’s laws of gravity led to basic equations of mechanics that made the industrial revolution possible. “This is so far out on a limb, I have no idea where it will be applied,” he added. “We’re talking about something we have no idea what the implications are and may not be directly applied for centuries.”

HIDDEN GEM One Upon A Time In Anatolia Directed by Nuri Bilge Ceylan This is a film in which, for most of the time, nothing appears to be happening – but, in fact, everything is. Nuri Bilge Ceylan’s 2010 film, new on DVD, is long and difficult, but I can only say it is a kind of masterpiece. The action extends over a single, rainy, night and into a grim morning at the workplace. A convoy of vehicles, containing police officers, the state prosecutor, a medical examiner and guys with shovels are accompanying two prisoners out into the expanse of the Anatolian steppe: the plain where Asia reaches into Iran, Armenia and Turkey. The men are murder suspects, evidently about to plead guilty. Their excursion started at the end of the working day, with everyone anticipating a quick discovery, but to the cops’ fury, the prisoners become muddled; they can’t remember exactly where the corpse is. The quest continues into the night, and stops at one stage, for a meal from a local mayor. When they see how heartstoppingly beautiful the mayor’s daughter is, they become thoughtful, solemn. Mortality has become real, as it will, to any of us, in the middle of the night. And always the presence of that victim – out there somewhere in the blackness – nags at their minds. Ceylan displays pure, exhilarating mastery in this film. Perhaps his most quietly spectacular flourish comes near the end: a virtuoso moment. The doctor, exhausted, comes into his office and switches on his computer: he notices – as he must surely do every time – personal photos of himself. A series of stills fill the screen. There is something heartbreaking in it. We are heading towards a terrible antimiracle, as a discovery comes about the victim and a decision must be made about how much to reveal. This is Ceylan’s greatest movie so far. — The Guardian

How Google’s Nexus 7 fares among tablets The recent success of Amazon’s Kindle Fire has given Google hope that the small-screen, inexpensive tablet market is worth pursuing. Google has set the tech world abuzz by announcing its new Nexus 7 tablet, the result of a partnership with ASUS, a multinational computer hardware and electronics company. If you’ve considered adding a tablet to your arsenal of tech gadgets but have balked at the price tag -- or the paltry performance of most lowend tablets -- take a look at the Nexus 7. Your first inclination is probably to compare it to the iPad, the dominant tablet on the market. In truth the Nexus 7 wasn’t ANDREA made to compete with the iPELDRIDGE ad. Its $199 starting price tag COMPUTER and 7-inch screen puts it NERDS squarely in the ring with the major eReader hybrids: the Kindle Fire and Barnes and Noble’s Nook tablet. When it comes to hardware, the Nexus 7 outpaces every other similarly priced tablet. It has faster response to your input, lighter weight and better screen resolution.

It also offers a front-facing 1.2 megapixel camera for video chat (through Skype or Google+) that the Fire and Nook lack. The biggest complaint about tablets is that they typically lack the power to do much beyond surf the net and check email. Google has put a lot of attention into getting this device capable of doing more. It has a faster processor (a quad-core vs. the dualcores offered by Fire and Nook) and a dedicated graphics processor to allow images to render faster. Since the core function of a tablet is to view media (be it streamed from the Web or stored on the device) and play games, display quality is a huge factor. While comparative tablets share the same 7-inch screen size, the Nexus 7’s display resolution is superior. On the Fire or Nook, you’ll do a lot of “pinch-tozoom” to get the smaller text on a website or online magazine large enough to read comfortably. The Nexus 7’s higher resolution allows for smaller text to be clear and easier to read, making the experience of paging through media or surfing the Web more enjoyable. My issue with all low-priced tablets is how content is funneled through their proprietary channels. They’re really just a tool to purchase content through Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and now Google. If you purchase and stream content from these sources anyway, you’re going to be married to the device that supports your library. In my opinion, Amazon offers the largest selection

of inexpensive content, so if you’re planning to start a library I would be hard-pressed to steer you away from the Kindle Fire. For example, while Google Play offers most of the same magazines as Amazon, many of them are more expensive. No one can compete with Amazon’s library of eBooks, music and movies yet. If you want to watch your own content (movies or photos) or listen to your own music on the device, the Nook is the only low-priced tablet that supports an expansion SD card. For those that wonder why storage on a tablet matters, the first long flight without Internet access to stream new material will leave you wondering why you bothered packing your 8GB Fire or Nexus 7. Verdict? Wait a couple of months for the rumored next generation of Kindle Fire to be released. If it’s closer to the Nexus 7’s hardware specs, you may be glad you waited. If you don’t plan to purchase content and are just looking for a low-priced tablet to surf the net, play games and check your email, the Nexus 7 is absolutely the best small-screen, low-priced tablet currently on the market.

BY THE CANADIAN PRESS TORONTO — A hand sanitizer meant to protect people from germs is being recalled because of bacterial contamination, Health Canada said Thursday. Kimberly-Clark is recalling its Kleenex-brand Luxury Foam Hand Sanitizer after company testing detected bacteria that may pose serious health risks to people with weakened immune systems, especially those with the lung disorder cystic fibrosis. The bacteria identified in the tested samples are from the Burkholderia cepacia group. These bacteria pose little risk to healthy people, but for those with immune systems weakened by other illnesses, the microbes can cause serious problems, including pneumonia and blood infection. The affected hand sanitizer comes in one-litre and 1.2-litre containers, and is used in large-volume dispensers, such as those found in public areas and workspaces. The recall affects about 430 containers, which were distributed to retail stores and wholesalers across Canada. Health Canada said companies or in-

dividuals who have purchased the affected product should remove it from use. Consumers with compromised immune systems should not use the affected Kleenex sanitizer or any sanitizing product that can’t be identified from its dispenser. Health Canada said consumers should speak to their health-care practitioner about any questions or concerns regarding the product. The affected products are: ● Kleenex Luxury Foam Hand Sanitizer (Benzalkonium Chloride, 0.1%), 1,000 ml manual cassette (used in manual dispensers); Drug Identification Number: 02366045; lot number SA1229ANB. ● Kleenex Luxury Foam Hand Sanitizer (Benzalkonium Chloride, 0.1%), 1,200 ml E-Cassette (used in electronic dispensers); Drug Identification Number: 02366045; lot number SA1229ANA. Additional information about the recall can be obtained by calling Kimberly-Clark Professional Corp. toll-free at 1-888-346-4652. Any adverse health reaction linked to the product can be reported to Health Canada by calling toll-free at 1-866-2342345.

Phone app takes a bite out of crime in Toronto BY THE CANADIAN PRESS TORONTO — It’s billed as a North American first — a crime-fighting mobile app for smartphones to be unveiled today by Toronto police and the city’s Crime Stoppers program. The app includes interactive features that enable Toronto-area residents to alert police in real time about a crime or potential crime through photos, video, emails, text, and a button that autodials Crime Stoppers. Const. Martin Douglas, Toronto Crime Stoppers youth and social media officer, says the organization receives over 200 anonymous tips per week. But he says many people who witness crimes often don’t report them for fear

of being identified. But with this app, says Douglas, police and Crime Stoppers hope bystanders will ”feel more empowered to be socially responsible and take action.” The app also includes a database of some of city’s wanted criminals, social media updates and a GPS locator to nearby police stations. “Whether it’s schoolyard bullying, drug abuse or shootings, we need Toronto’s residents to step up and help keep our neighbourhoods safe with information on criminal misconduct,” said Toronto Crime Stoppers chairman Gary Grant. “Ultimately we have a responsibility to look out for each other.”

Some words of wisdom watered down Over the years I have accumulated a lot of life lessons and words of wisdom. Whenever I come across a phrase or tidbit that causes my inner being to sit up and smile I cut it out or jot it down and tuck it away in my think box. Or sometimes I put it on a Post it and thumb it to the wall behind my computer screen. SHANNON Stuck to my MCKINNON wall right now are the words, “To change everything, simply change your attitude.” Why is that we are always looking to the outside to find happiness for our insides? That never works. Oh, maybe briefly at best, but it never packs the sort of inner peace that lasts. I believe happiness is more a state of mind than a state of circumstance. And when I forget, I have my Post it right there on the wall to remind me.

SLICE OF LIFE

Some words of wisdom I use so often I don’t need to write them down. Such is the case with this little gem: righty tighty, lefty loosey. I have always believed that no one should unleash themselves onto the unsuspecting world without it. It simply means if you turn something to the right – lids, bolts, hose couplings – it will tighten and if you turn it to the left it will loosen. There are a few exceptions, but on the whole you can’t go wrong with this marvelous little mantra. Or such was my thinking when I was recently asked for assistance in turning on a newly installed irrigation system. A lid nestled into the ground by the foundation of the house lifted to reveal a tangle of electrical wires and a row of three knobs. The first knob, I was told, was for starting the irrigation. With an air of confidence and the words, “Righty tighty, lefty loosey” tap dancing in my head, I knelt down and turned the knob to the left. Nothing seemed to be happening. “Lefty loosey,” I said confidently. “What did you say?” asked the homeowner, starting to look concerned. I spun the knob a little more to the left. At this point water started running out from the bottom of the knob.

Not a lot, but enough to catch our attention. For reasons which now seem shaky at best, I felt in order to slow the leak the knob needed to be loosened even more. My thinking was because the valve was not fully open the excess pressure was forcing water to exit where it should not be exiting. “A little more lefty loosey should do the trick,” I said, whistling a little. Whistling is always a good thing to do when you want to appear confident and project an air of calm. It was a short whistle. Imagine, if you will, my great consternation when instead of stopping the leak, turning the knob caused it to come off in my hand altogether. The situation quickly escalated as an impressive geyser shot up from the knob hole, blasted me in the face, wetting my whistle before projecting itself another 20 feet in the air where it thundered against the soffit and rained back down on our heads. I stood with my mouth hanging open, the lefty loosened knob dangling from my hand, my water logged glasses blinding me to the look on the homeowner’s face; which was probably just as well. Then, since my mouth was filling up with water, I closed it, wiped at my

glasses, fought off the urge to flee and bent down to try and rectify the situation. “Oh my goodness!” shouted the homeowner, wondering whatever had possessed her to think that my knowing the difference between a peony and a pansy gave me the necessary credentials to run a high tech irrigation system. “What shall we do?” “Righty tighty!” I babbled, adding a few other short phrases under my breath best not repeated here. Let’s just say they weren’t from my think box or off a Post it on my wall and leave it at that. Water sprayed in every direction at once while I frantically tried to thread the knob back onto the spout. Several minutes and a great deal of water later the knob was back in place. “What you might want to do,” I said later, as we stood gasping and dripping all over the sidewalk, “is to only turn the knob a little to the left. “That appears to be important. To help you remember just think ‘a little lefty loosey’. Would you like me to write that down for you?” Shannon McKinnon is a humour columnist from Northern BC.

RED DEER ADVOCATE Thursday, July 5, 2012 B3

Pipeline safety: just a pipe dream? The damaged bank berm at a pipeline crossing got me thinking. Prairie Creek, my beloved “home” stream, used to be one of Alberta’s better and most beautiful trout streams. Now it is just beautiful, but crude oil spilling into it would still be a disaster, so I went for a poke about. The experience was a shocking eye-opener. In traveling 100 km. of roads in the vicinity of my Stump Ranch, I counted more than 100 signed pipeline crossings of the those roads, including another half dozen at least that cross Prairie Creek downstream from the one with the damaged berm at the top of the “miracle mile” down to where Prairie runs into the Clearwater River. I didn’t even get started on counting lines crossing the BOB Clearwater itself, but the prosSCAMMELL pect is frightening, because this fast and flood-prone river also features unstable bed and banks. Back in my stupid(er) days, the Clearwater would wash the gravel out from under my wading feet two or three times every summer. What will it do one day with some corroded and sclerotic old pipeline running under its loose gravels? But the river and stream crossings are not the only way Alberta’s more than 350,000 km. of oil and gas pipelines could leak oil into our rivers and streams. Countless miles of pipeline in central and northern Alberta traverse muskegs, great sub-surface lakes that are reservoirs storing and slowly releasing water to many of our rivers and streams. Detection and cleanup of pipeline leaks into muskegs are a horrifying prospect, particularly in sparsely-populated northern Alberta, where lax pipeline owners and operators are not able to rely on local residents to tell them when their lines are leaking. As I poked around my Stump Ranch area I got distracted from just the leak aspect of pipelines, and started getting angry at the extent of destruction current pipeline construction is inflicting on the surface of the land, particularly our public land. This seems to me to be a recent trend, almost as though the pipeline contractors have started taking an attitude that, “hell, it’s only public land; we can do what we like with it.” The decline in pipeline safety and the attacks of big oil and gas on the environment intensified with the drastic budget cuts of the first Klein Conservative government and have accelerated ever since. Responding to recent public outrage over the Red Deer River spill and half a dozen other recent spills, our new premier says she would not be averse to a major review of pipeline safety, but only when these recent spills are cleaned up. I suspect Hon. Redford really means “never,” because the occurrence rate of these incidents guarantees there will never be a time when they are all cleaned up. Besides, in today’s Alberta, it is a pipedream to expect Alberta provincial politicians even to slap, let alone bite the hand that keeps their collective butts in the butter dish of big pay, and fabulous perks, including huge so-called “severance allowances.” Yet one more time, perhaps the last, the federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans might wade

bertan and non-Canadian initiative of commencing a class-action lawsuit seeking $75 million in damages against Plains Midstream for the spill. Short of outright revolution, this is the only step left for people who are fed up and can’t take it any more from a resource industry riding roughshod over our environment and a government that too often seems to be aiding and abetting the carnage. When anything becomes fair game in the destruction of our renewable natural resources in the money-driven race to extract, sell off and transport our non-renewable natural resources cheaply to China as quickly as possible, the only recourse is to greatly increase “production” costs for the environmental destruction here at home. bscam@telusplanet.net Visit kia.ca to learn more.

into a provincial fisheries atrocity that the province surely wont prosecute, i.e.: the Red Deer spill, and eventually extract a big penalty from Plains Midstream using the same section of the federal Fisheries Act under which CNR was fined $1 million on May 25, 2009 for its August 23, 2005 derailment and spill of heavy fuel oil and pole treating oil into Wabamun Lake. DFO people were on the scene at Gleniffer Lake, and their Alberta office has confirmed to me that, among other things, they were investigating to determine if the spill “resulted in the harmful alteration, disruption, or destruction of fish habitat,” in the good old words of sec. 35 (1) of the Fisheries Act, under which the CNR was convicted. Those are the same words under which Plains Midstream would be prosecuted, their offence, if any, having taken place before the recent gutting, “dumbing down,” weakening of sec. 35 (1) in the much-reviled federal PC’s so-called “omnibus” budget bill, which also contained an unholy war on some of Canada’s best environmental legislation.

Jays’ pitching working well VILLANUEVA HAS STRONG START AS BLUE JAYS DEFEAT ROYALS BY LARRY MILLSON THE CANADIAN PRESS

DAVID ORTIZ

ORTIZ GETS 400TH HR Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz hit his 400th career home run Wednesday, a leadoff drive to right in the fourth inning against Oakland’s A.J. Griffin in a 3-2 loss to the Athletics. The 36-year-old Big Papi’s home runs rank eighth among active players and 49th on the alltime list. Next up for him to catch: Hall of Famer Duke Snider with 407. His 22nd home run of the season for Boston tied the game 1-1. Ortiz’s 352 home runs and 1,142 RBIs as a designated hitter are most alltime. The A’s also allowed Paul Konerko’s milestone 400th home run for the White Sox when he did it April 25 against Grant Balfour in the Coliseum.

Toronto 4 Kansas City 1 TORONTO — It was one of those days when everything worked according to plan for Toronto Blue Jays starter Carlos Villanueva. The right-hander pitched six shutout innings as the Blue Jays defeated the Kansas City Royals 4-1 on Wednesday. “I felt good today,” Villanueva said. “I felt like I really knew what I wanted to do one through nine.” Villanueva (3-0) held the Royals to four hits and no walks while striking out seven in his second start since coming out of the bullpen to bolster an injury-depleted starting rotation. “He pitched very well to his scouting report,” manager John Farrell said. “His ability to execute four different pitches for strikes disrupted a lot of hitters timing.” The Blue Jays were able to score just enough runs with Yunel Escobar driving in two with a single and a sacrifice fly. Rajai Davis had a triple and a sacrifice fly, while Kelly Johnson also had sacrifice fly as the Blue Jays won their second straight over the Royals. Casey Janssen pitched the ninth inning for his 11th save and second in the past two games for Toronto (42-40). Luis Mendoza (3-5) allowed nine hits, one walk and three runs while setting a career high of nine strikeouts over six innings for the Royals (36-44). Villanueva shared the credit with catcher J.P. Arencibia. “He did the home work and we talked a little bit before the game and exactly what we wrote down today in the report is what we took out there,” Villanueva said. “We knew exactly what we wanted to do. The two times I did shake him the ball was hit hard.” Villanueva, who is a long reliever, also made 13 starts for Toronto last season. “Every time we’ve asked him to go into this role he has stabilized a game right from the start and has just done an outstanding job for us,” Farrell said. “He’s a kid that really pitches,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. “He’s got an above average curveball, he’s got an above average changeup that he can command, he spots his fastball really well.” The Jays opened the scoring in the second with Davis’ triple and a sac fly by John-

Singles by J.P. Arencibia and Brett Lawrie and a walk to Colby Rasmus loaded the bases with two out for Jose Bautista who struck out. Escobar and Davis hit sacrifice flies in the third to put the Blue Jays into a 3-0 lead. Edwin Encarnacion led off with an infield hit on a slow grounder to second and both Mendoza and first baseman Eric Hosmer wound up covering first. Mendoza took the throw but he left the bag to get out Hosmer’s way. “I called it and then he called it,” Mendoza said. “For me it was hard to stop. I should have let Hos make that play. I was just a little confused.” Adam Lind sliced a double to left to set up the sacrifice flies. Jason Frasor took over from Villanueva in the seventh. He allowed a leadoff walk to Billy Butler but Yuniesky Betancourt rapped into a double play. But Mike Moustakas singled and Jeff Francoeur hit a liner to left that Davis played into a run-scoring triple as the ball

town team. “We kept in touch throughout this whole thing and we decided that we thought for both of us that the best fit would be Minnesota,” Parise said in a conference call. “We’re excited that it worked out and we get a chance to play with each other.” One person said that even the breakdown of the contracts is exactly the same, with both players getting $12 million in each of the first two years. The deals then go down in value, with each player making $1 million in both 2023-24 and 2024-25. “My parents were so excited when they knew that I was considering coming back home,” Parise said. “When I made the decision they were real excited as well.

PHOENIX, Ariz. — Steve Nash won’t be coming home to Canada. The veteran point guard is going to the Los Angeles Lakers, a Pacific Division rival the two-time MVP point guard tried so hard to beat, with little success, in his eight seasons with the Phoenix Suns. At Nash’s request, the Lakers and Suns reached a sign-andtrade deal, with Los Angeles using the trade exception it got when it sent Lamar Odom to Dallas to facilitate the transaction. Steve Nash The 38-year-old from Victoria, who spent the past eight seasons with the Suns, was a free agent but a sign-and-trade agreement was necessary for the Lakers to afford him. He agreed to a three-year, US$27 million contract. In return, the Suns get four draft picks — first rounders in 2013 and 2015 and second rounders in 2013 and 2014. Nash’s agent Bill Duffy said the deal was finalized Wednesday about 6 p.m., PDT. In a statement released by the agent, Nash said that after he and the Suns agreed to part ways, he re-approached them to ask to pursue a sign-and-trade deal with Los Angeles “because it is very important to me to stay near my children and family,” who live in Phoenix. “They were very apprehensive and didn’t want to do it,” Nash said. “Fortunately for me, they reconsidered. They saw that they were able to get assets for their team that will make them better, assets they would not have otherwise had and it made sense for them to do a deal that helps their team get better.” Nash’s decision will surely cause disappointment among fans of the Toronto Raptors. Canada’s only NBA team made a pitch to bring him to Toronto. Raptors general manager Bryan Colangelo reportedly made Nash a three-year offer worth $36 million over the weekend. Reached by The Canadian Press, Colangelo declined to comment on Nash’s move to L.A. Nash is also the general manager of Canada Basketball’s senior men’s national team.

Nashville Predator Ryan Suter (20) controls the puck under pressure from St. Louis Blue David Backes (42), in Nashville, Tenn. Suter signed with the Minnesota Wild as a free agent on Wednesday.

Wild nab Suter, Parise THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The Minnesota Wild were a starless team in need of a big-time jolt to get the franchise back to the point of being worthy of playing in “the State of Hockey.” The jolts don’t come any bigger than this. The Wild landed not one but both of the NHL’s top prizes in free agency, signing forward Zach Parise and defenceman Ryan Suter on Wednesday. Each deal is for 13 years and $98 million, according to three people familiar with the contracts who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the team did not release details. “WE GOT ’EM!” the Wild announced on their Twitter account early Wednesday afternoon, sending shockwaves across the league and through a devoted fan base that was starting to show

signs of apathy after missing the playoffs for a fourth straight season. Parise, the former New Jersey Devils playmaker, and Suter, who paired with Shea Weber on the Nashville blue line, were regarded the cream of what was a thin free agent crop, and each had spent the past four days poring over numerous offers from several teams before making a decision. “This is a great day in the history of the Minnesota Wild,” GM Chuck Fletcher said in a conference call. Maybe THE greatest. The Wild have had a relatively non-descript existence aside from one stirring run to the Western Conference finals in their second season. Parise knows the history well, having grown up in the Twin Cities. So he recruited his friend Suter to come help out the home-

WILD: Transformed “That played a big part. I grew up here, I love coming back here in the summers and I thought ’We enjoy it here so much it would be great to be here year round.”’ And it’s a relative homecoming for Suter, who is from Wisconsin, as well. “It came down to where I felt my family would like to live,” Suter said. “My wife’s from Bloomington, Minnesota. That had a lot to do with it. . Minnesota has a lot of good young players that I think will help make this team successful.” With one fell swoop, the Wild have been transformed from a relatively young franchise with very little history of success since being re-established in Minnesota, to an immediate contender.

Roger Federer of Switzerland plays a return to Mikhail Youzhny of Russia during a quarterfinals match at the All England Lawn Tennis Championships at Wimbledon, England, Wednesday.

Federer back in semis BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS WIMBLEDON, England — After curling in a 102 mph ace to grab a twoset lead a mere 56 minutes into his Wimbledon quarterfinal Wednesday, Roger Federer casually pulled an extra tennis ball from his pocket and strolled to sit in his changeover chair for a sip to drink. No fist pump. No yell of excitement. No energized jog to the sideline. There still was work to be done; nothing to be taken for granted. Motivated by the bitter memory of quarterfinal losses at the All England Club the past two years, including a wasted twoset edge in 2011, six-time Wimbledon champion Federer bullied 26th-seeded Mikhail Youzhny of Russia 6-1, 6-2, 6-2 to reach his record 32nd career Grand Slam semifinal. “Feels great being back in the semis. ... Haven’t been here in the last couple years,” the third-seeded Federer said. “So this is nice, to be back to a place where I’ve been so many times before.” He’s two wins away from a seventh Wimbledon championship, which would equal a mark set by William Renshaw in the 1880s — back when the defending champion received a bye directly into the final — and tied by Pete Sampras in 2000. Nothing worked for Youzhny, including a kidding plea for help from eight-time major champion Andre Agassi, who was seated next to his wife, Steffi Graf, in the front row of the Royal Box, near Prince William and his wife, Kate.

“I know I’m playing really well,” Federer said. “I am aware things are going to get complicated in the next match.” Sure are. That’s because he’ll face a familiar foe Friday: No. 1 Novak Djokovic, the defending champion, who didn’t have too much trouble while beating No. 31 Florian Mayer of Germany 6-4, 6-1, 6-4 in the quarterfinals. This will be the sixth semifinal in the past eight Grand Slam tournaments, and 27th meeting overall, for Federer and Djokovic, and their first at Wimbledon. Federer leads 14-12, but Djokovic won six of their last seven matches, including at the French Open a month ago. “There’s no secrets with those guys. They know how to play each other,” said Federer’s coach, Paul Annacone. “So it’s really going to be who plays the bigger points better.” The other men’s semifinal will be No. 4 Andy Murray of Britain against No. 5 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga of France. Neither has won a Grand Slam title or been to a Wimbledon final. Cue “Murray Mania,” as it’s known around these parts. He is trying to become the first British man to earn the trophy at the All England Club since Fred Perry in 1936; the last to even make it to the title match was Bunny Austin in 1938. In the women’s semifinals today, 13-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams plays No. 2-seeded Victoria Azarenka of Belarus, and No. 3 Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland faces No. 8 Angelique Kerber of Germany.

STORY FROM PG B6

NASH: Suns get something The deal will put Nash on the floor with the team he tried so hard to unseat as a Western Conference power, teaming him with Kobe Bryant, Andrew Bynum and at least for now, Pau Gasol. The Suns at least get something in the loss of their longtime leader and one of the city’s most popular athletes, although no one to help immediately, unless some or all of the picks are used in future trades. Nash’s Phoenix teammate Jared Dudley tweeted that Nash “has not only been the best but the most unselfish player I ever played with. I only wish him the best. He deserves everything. Steve Nash has made many players millions. Only fitting to trade to a team that has a chance to win the ship and pay what he deserves.” Nash has never made it to the NBA Finals. He was last in the Western Conference finals against the Lakers in 2010, when the Suns lost in six games and Los Angeles went on to win the NBA title. The sign-and-trade agreement first was reported by sports personality John Gambadoro of KTAR radio. The Suns drafted Nash in 1998 but traded him to Dallas after two seasons because Phoenix already had Kevin Johnson and Jason Kidd at the position. Nash played six seasons for Dallas but bolted when owner Mark Cuban declined to spend big money to keep him. Then-Suns owner Jerry Colangelo brought a plane load of team players and officials to Dallas to woo Nash. Nash thrived in Mike D’Antoni’s run-and-gun system, earning MVP honours in 2005, when he averaged 15.5 points and 11.5 assists, and again in 2007, when he averaged a career-high 18.8 points and 10.5 assists. Nash averaged fewer than 10 assists only once, 9.7 in 2008-09, and topped 11 per game five times in his eight years with Phoenix. Despite his age and the fact his team failed to make the playoffs for the second year in a row, Nash was second in the NBA in assists last season at 10.7 and averaged 12.7 points.

Codd shoots low for Central Alberta Red Deer Golf and Country Club member Matt Codd was the low Central Albertan following Wednesday’s second round of the provincial junior men’s championship at Bragg Creek. Codd carded a 1-over 72 and sat 10 strokes behind co-leaders Matt Williams and Nicholas Scrymgeour — both of Calgary — with a 147 total heading into today’s third round of the 72-hole tournament. Williams shot a 70 and Scrymgeour checked in with a 69. Ryan Caines of Sundre was tied for 25th at 152 after coming in with a 73 and Brett Pasula of the Red Deer Golf and Country Club (RDG&CC) shot a 77 and was tied for 27th at 153. Caines fired an opening-round 79 and Pasula carded a 76 Tuesday. Other Central Aberta results: Jesse Teron, RDG&CC (80-77—157, tied for 37th); Logan Hill, RDG&CC (78-83—161, tied for 61st); James Ursulak, Ponoka (8379—162, tied for 69th); Nolan Bruin, RDG&CC (84-80—164, 77th); Ryan Morrell, RDG&CC (84-83—167, tied for 81st); Derrick Morrell, RDG&CC (missed cut). ● There was a three-way tie for top spot following the second round of the Alberta junior girls championship Wednesday at Okotoks. Calgary golfers Jennifer Ha (77-76), who held the first-round lead, Sabrine Garrison (78-75) and Sydney MacDonald (80-73) all had a 153 total heading to the tee for today’s third round of the 72-hole event. Courtney Dickson of Innisfail carded a 102 and with a 303 total was in 38th place.

Mural a big job for artist COMMISSIONED TO CREATE PANELS FOR CANADIAN PROFESSIONAL RODEO HALL OF FAME BY PAUL COWLEY RED DEER ADVOCATE PONOKA — Art is often a journey for its creators. But Inge Sybrandi’s latest artistic journey is measurable — 100 feet to be exact. The 29-year-old Ponoka artist behind IngesArt recently landed the biggest commission of her career, a history of rodeo in 24 panels that will run the length of a wall in the Canadian Professional Rodeo Hall of Fame, located in the new Ponoka Ag Event Centre. Sybrandi was approached by hall of fame organizers at last year’s Ponoka Stampede art show and asked if she was interested in doing a large mural. But it was only when she stood in the hall and looked up at the space they wanted covered that the scale of the endeavour hit her. “Holy crap,” she remembers thinking, laughing at the memory. But the commission had some key things going for it. It gave the artist, who was well known locally for her pencil skills, a chance to tackle a major painting project, and it gave her a giant-sized billboard to get her name out to more potential clients. So, in true grabbing-the-bullby-the-horns spirit, she said yes. “I always wanted to paint. It was just getting there,” she says. “Just getting this job, (it) was really where I wanted to be.” “At least after this when I’ve done 100 feet, I can call myself a painter. “I’ll be a painter — or crazy — one of the two,” quips Sybrandi, in her basement studio

Inge Sybrandi works on the Ponoka Ag Centre’s mural in her Ponoka basement. where the first five panels took shape. They were ready in time for the grand opening of the hall of fame on June 30. It is a daunting task she has set herself — how to capture the drama, pageantry and history of rodeo in oil and acrylic paints. Not to mention the challenge

of creating two dozen compositions that must stand alone as individual paintings while forming a cohesive theme. Sybrandi is no greenhorn when it comes to bringing the world of horses and rodeo to life, having completed four calendars illustrated with her detailed pencil renderings of

western scenes and memorable individuals. Her resume also includes numerous other commissions for individual customers. It will take about a year to complete all of the 1.2-metre-by1.5-metre panels.

BLACKFALDS

Volunteers key to running After the Grind BY RENEE FRANCOEUR ADVOCATE STAFF Amber Lupkoski, a young Blackfalds mother of two, said she finds herself coming into After the Grind Coffee House every day. “The food is great, coffee’s great and fair-trade. . . . The kids love it and feel comfortable here — there’s books and stuff for them — and the service is friendly, approachable,” said Lupkoski. “My favourite is their tiger ice cream,” chirped her six-year-old son, Carson. His four year-old sister, Caira, prefers the frothy floats. It’s a familiar staple in her day, said Lupkoski, and has more of a relaxed, homey feel to it than chain coffee shops. After the Grind, located downtown Blackfalds at 4911 Broadway Ave., isn’t just any ordinary coffee house either. It’s a non-profit café, dependent entirely on the efforts of volunteers and focused on the larger picture of wide-reaching community development. After the Grind is an offshoot project for the Blackfalds chapter of one of the largest Christian organizations in the world, Youth With a Mission (YWAM). Its profits go towards enriching the lives of children and youth locally as well as internationally. “The fact that After the Grind in 100 per cent volunteer based mystifies a lot of people,” said Chris Keim, co-director of the coffee house along with his wife Sharon. Twelve staff volunteers from YWAM Blackfalds run the coffee shop along with a handful of local volunteers, including students from Iron Ridge Junior Campus. International volunteers also come to Blackfalds to try their hand as baristas through YWAM for a period of three weeks.

Customers Amy Hauck, her son Coleton, 14, and daughter Paige, 4, are served by volunteer Janna Doerksen at After The Grind coffeehouse in Blackfalds Tuesday. So far, After the Grind has hosted volunteers from South Korea, Brazil, Mexico and South Africa. Through the organization and the coffee house profits, the local group has assisted orphanages across the globe, raised school funds for Mexican students and contributed to Haitian relief funds among other endeavours, said Keim. On a weekly basis, YWAM Blackfalds volunteers also serve in the local Food for Schools program, prepare meals at the Red Deer soup kitchen and offer free English classes to local immigrants. The coffee house opened shop four years ago, after some major renovations to the quaint corner building that was once Cornerstone Christian Fellowship church, said Keim, 41, who grew up in Blackfalds. To avoid their church’s demolition, the Cornerstone Christian Fellowship donated the 100 year-old building to YWAM Blackfalds in late 2007. The building had been used as a general store, hardware store and grocery store throughout the years. After spending years overseas, Keim jumped at the opportunity to return to his hometown, the place where he had “the freedom to ride my bike anywhere,” to raise

his own family. “We wanted to create a community gathering space in the town, a third space after home and work where people develop relationships, don’t feel rushed. “The business isn’t about cranking people through. The business is about establishing a quiet, peaceful place for connections,” he said. After the Grind serves up more than fairtrade mochas and caramel macchiatos; it serves soups in the winter, salads in the summer plus an assortment of panini sandwiches and deserts, such as the ever-popular homemade carrot cake. The shop also offers a board game night for local youth every Friday to give them something to do in the small town and keep them out of trouble, said Keim. Some evenings, they’ve had up to 40 young adults attend. Keim said he’d like to see After the Grind expand as a venue, used more in the evening for poetry readings and other programs. They are also in the process of renovating the back kitchen so they can do more baking right on site. rfrancoeur@reddeeradvocate.com

Adam Cohen enjoying career high at Spidey the same time as poet father, Leonard spins BY THE CANADIAN PRESS TORONTO — Leonard Cohen has been enjoying such a charmed year musically that it’s hard to imagine how even the masterfully morose poet could locate a downside in 2012. His first album in more than seven years, Old Ideas, became his first to top the charts in Canada en route to platinum sales, and caused critics to collectively lose their breath. Meanwhile, the 77-year-old Montreal-born singer won the prestigious Glenn Gould Prize and the inaugural PEN songwriting prize while charting an ambitious globe-spanning tour for the second half of the year. Well, it’s been a heady year for Leonard’s son, Adam, as well. The 39-year-old also released an album after a sevenyear-plus layoff of his own, and the musical reinvention Like a Man is his most acclaimed work to date. In the coming weeks, he’ll open for the likes of Bob Dylan, Norah Jones and Rufus Wainwright. But his own success aside, he’s enjoying his father’s renaissance as much as anyone. “I do think it’s a coincidence, but at the same time, I also know that to be in his wake is a delicious and satisfying occurrence,” says the younger Cohen in a telephone interview this week from Montreal, where he’s in rehearsals. “I’ve often said that what I think is the distinguishing trait with my father is that he remains to me pertinent and anything but a nostalgia act. It gives me great pleasure to bear

witness.” In fact, it was his father who in part inspired Adam Cohen’s late-career left-turn. He issued his self-titled debut back in 1998, and in 2004 followed with a French-language album, as well as a disc as frontman of the alt-rock outfit Low Millions. None of the records gained much traction, and he’s now quick to question his own artistic priorities during those fledgling stages of his career. “I was so preoccupied with trying to play in the highest ranks of pop music,” he says. “My esthetic goals were tight jeans, four chords and sex, drugs and rock ’n’ roll. I wasn’t focused on the art.” Eventually, things started to seem dire. He contemplated quitting music altogether. “I thought that I had basically tried and failed, and that I was already on the outs,” he says. “When you’re relegated to scoring porno flicks, writing for others, pitching for movies and commercials, a certain reality does dawn on you.” The whole time he had the songs that comprise Like a Man in his back pocket. He’d been hesitant to record them — in part because of how closely they hewed to his dad’s classic work — a mistake he now considers “tragic.” So what changed his mind? When he became a father himself, he began to reconcile his relationship to his own dad’s music, or as he puts it, the “family business.” Afraid of the perception of nepotism, he had always shunned those influences

Now, the intimate, spare Like a Man invites those comparisons. “This record is a claiming of an identity, an embrace and a declaration of belonging,” he says. “And also, it’s a coming of age record. It’s reconciling where I’ve been with where I want to be. “I thought carving out a path for myself meant outside of the fam-

ily farm,” he adds. “I found my place is much more true within it.” He’s now accepting more and more gigs with overt connections to his father. At the reception for the Glenn Gould Prize in May, he brought the all-star show at Toronto’s Massey Hall to a close with a rousing singalong take on his father’s 1967 hit So Long, Marianne.

LOS ANGELES — The Amazing Spider-Man has swung into action with $35 million domestically in its first day — a record for a film opening on Tuesday. The new launch for the Marvel Comics superhero outdid the previous best Tuesday debut of $27.9 million for Transformers, which also opened the day before the Fourth of July in 2007. Box-office trackers had projected that The Amazing Spider-Man might earn around $120 million in its first six days, through the end of Fourth of July weekend. But its strong start indicates it could do considerably more. The original Transformers went on to do $155.4 million domestically through Fourth of July weekend, which included receipts from Monday night previews.

British comedic actor Sykes dies after short illness LONDON — Eric Sykes, the widely-acclaimed British comedy actor and writer, died Wednesday. He was 89. Sykes was one of the most popular comic actors of his generation, appearing in shows in London’s West End into his 80s. He began his career writing scripts for BBC shows, co-writing 24 episodes of the classic radio comedy “The Goon Show” with the late Spike Milligan. He appeared in the “Sykes and a” sitcom about a brother and sister living together in west London, which ran in the 1960s and 1970s. He went on to write and act in theatre shows and movies, including an appearance in “The Others” starring Nicole Kidman and in the Harry Potter film “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.” Sykes also wrote

scripts for Peter Sellers and other major British actors. Manager Norma Farnes said that Sykes died following a brief illness and was with his family when he passed away, but did give the cause of his death or specify if Sykes had been at home or in a hospital. TV star and former Monty Python member Michael Palin said Sykes was “one of the nicest, most decent men in the business and one of a kind.” “To me, he was a great inspiration, both as a writer and performer,” Palin said. Comedian Stephen Fry paid tribute on Twitter, writing: “Oh no! Eric Sykes gone? An adorable, brilliant, modest, hilarious, innovative and irreplaceable comic master. Farewell, dear, dear man.” Comedy writer Eddie Braben said Sykes was

a “monumental man of comedy, an inspirational figure for those who aimed for comedy success.” He said Sykes’ death leaves “an enormous gap in the field of fun. His was the comedy of innocence. He didn’t raise any bruises, only laughter.” Sykes was survived by his wife, Eith Eleanore Milbrandt, and his four children. Farnes could not immediately be reached to confirm details of funeral arrangements.

DEFINED BENEFIT PLANS STILL FACE CHALLENGES: GROUPS TORONTO — Definedbenefit pension plans faced financial declines in the second quarter, hurt by low long-term interest rates and volatile markets, say two studies by pension consulting firms. Mercer and the Towers Watson both said Wednesday that companies need to find strategies to take away some of the risk from their defined-benefit pension plans. “The solvency position of most Canadian pension plans declined sharply in the second quarter of 2012 on the back of weak equity markets and a significant drop in long-term federal bond yields,” Mercer said in a news release. The Mercer Pension Health Index stands at 77 per cent on June 30, down five per cent over the quarter. Towers Watson said the combined effects of poor investment returns and decreasing interest rates caused its DB Pension Index to fall 1.4 per cent. “Based on other data collected by Towers Watson on the funded status of Canadian DB plans, this would mean that the typical plan, which was roughly 85 per cent funded at the start of 2012, is likely in no better shape at mid-year,” the pension consulting firm said.

Trican shares plunge WET WEATHER, PRICING PRESSURE AND HIGHER COSTS CITED FOR GREATER Q2 LOSSES BY THE CANADIAN PRESS CALGARY — Investors punished Trican Well Service Ltd. on Wednesday, driving the stock down as much as 15 per cent after the company warned of a much bigger second-quarter loss than analysts had been expecting. Wet weather, pricing pressure and higher costs were cited among reasons for the deteriorating results. Shares in the Calgary-based oilfield services company (TSX:TCW) plunged as low $10.39 on the Toronto Stock Exchange. The previous 52-week low for Trican stock was $10.86. A year ago, it was approaching a 52-week high of $26.73. The stock closed down 87 cents or seven per cent at $11.35 on Wednesday. Analysts had been looking

TMX

for Trican (TSX:TCW) to have a loss of about two cents per share on a fully reported basis, or four cents per share after adjustments, according to estimates compiled by Thomson Reuters. The company said after markets closed Tuesday that it estimates the loss will actually be between 32 and 42 cents per share. It estimated an operating loss of between $24 million and $34 million for the three months ended June 30. Second-quarter results are expected to be released July 30. Trican, which provides equipment and services used for oil and gas drilling, said wet weather in May and June had delayed some projects. Trican also said it expects pricing will decline in the second half of 2012 compared with the first half due to reduced

customer budgets and increased competition from new pumping equipment in the Canadian market. “We will continue to monitor the capital budgets and cash flows of our customers in light of low gas prices and the recent weakness in oil prices,” Trican said “We expect that any additional reductions in capital spending by our customers will decrease Canadian rig count and place further pricing pressure on the Canadian pressure pumping market.” It also said that it’s looking at parking rig crews in the United States. The second quarter also saw an increase in the price of guar, an ingredient in the fluid mixtures used to blast natural gas and oil out of shale rock in a process called fracking.

Ford still on top despite drop in sales

Maple Group bid clears key hurdles TORONTO — The longstanding proposed takeover of the TMX Group cleared a number of key regulatory hurdles on Wednesday, perhaps most importantly from the Competition Bureau. The federal regulator said it will not challenge the attempt to takeover the operator of Canada’s major stock exchanges by the Maple Group Acquisition Corp., a factor that could’ve potentially sidelined the transaction. Meanwhile, the Ontario Securities Commission gave its approval and published final recognition orders for the deal which values the TMX Group at $3.8 billion. Maple spokesman Luc Bertrand said the approvals were “a very major milestone” for the consortium of 12 Canadian banks, pension funds, brokerages and insurers leading the bid. “My understanding is that it was a lot of work between the bureau and the OSC (to) satisfy that post-transaction there would be a regulatory structure that addresses the bureau’s concerns,” he said in an interview. Competition Commissioner Melanie Aitken said the bureau had serious concerns, but that they had been addressed. “While the bureau has an independent mandate to review mergers, the bureau provided input and advice to the OSC for its consideration relating to the potential impact on competition that could result from the proposed transactions,” Aitken said in a statement.

Trican said it wasn’t able to pass on those costs to its customers due to the competitive pricing environment, but that it expects to benefit from costcutting measures of its own in the second half of the year. It also expects guar costs to ease later in 2012. None of the factors that Trican cited as challenges should have been surprising, said Bank of Montreal analyst Michael Mazar. “Everyone who lives here knows that it rains every single day in June,” he said. The pricing pressure and cost inflation are also “fairly well understood” in the market, he added. “The magnitude of it is bigger, I think, than what people were expecting.” Mazar said he expects Trican’s issues to be temporary.

TORONTO — Ford Canada was the top selling automaker in Canada last month, despite seeing a nearly nine per cent drop in sales while overall auto sales edged slightly higher compared with a year ago. The Detroit-based automaker said Wednesday it sold 30,543 vehicles last month, down from 33,450 a year ago, but the company still outsold second-place Chrysler Canada by a wide margin. “Coming off a 23-year sales record last June, Ford of Canada still had a very positive month closing at number one,” Ford Canada president and CEO Dianne Craig said in statement. Overall, light vehicle sales totalled 169,459 for June according to data compiled by DesRosiers Automotive Consultants, up 2.8 per cent from 164,796 in June 2011. Passenger car sales were up 2.7 per cent at 78,903 from 76,830 a year ago, while light truck sales were up 2.9 per cent at 90,556 from 87,966. The overall gains by the market came as Japanese manufacturers bounced back from the fallout from the earthquake and tsunami that forced production cuts last year. “The market share lost this year by Detroit Three brands has been transferred primarily to Japanese brands,” said analyst Dennis DesRosiers in a statement. “Japanese manufacturers built a considerable head of steam last spring; most are maintaining that positive momentum into the summer months.” Sales at Chrysler Canada crept up 0.5 per cent in June compared with a year ago, helped by strong sales of the Dodge Grand Caravan minivan.

Italy needs cheap borrowing, not bailout: Monti BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS ROME — Italian Premier Mario Monti insisted Wednesday the country doesn’t need a European bailout because its public finances will improve, but acknowledges work still needs to be done to cut government spending, boost economic growth and create jobs. Monti spoke at a press conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel after meeting about Europe’s debt crisis. It was their first encounter since European leaders in Brussels last week agreed to use the continent’s bailout fund to funnel money directly to struggling banks and let countries following budget rules apply for financial aid without stringent conditions attached. Monti, who had pressed for such a deal, insisted Italy didn’t need a bailout to help it pay its government debt because its budget deficit was low com-

pared with many other European countries and forecast to improve. As of the end of 2011, official European statistics put Italy’s deficit at 3.9 per cent, just above the EU limit of 3 per cent. Spain’s, by contrast, was much higher at 8.5 per cent. Italy’s big problem is the economy is in recession and it has a high public debt load equivalent to 120 per cent of GDP. Investors fearing Italy may have trouble repaying that debt have been asking for high interest rates to lend to the country. The measures announced by European leaders last week have helped relieve the fear that Italy may default. In particular, making it easier for countries to access European bailout funds has convinced investors that Italy has a credible financial backstop should it run into trouble financing itself. Agreeing to loosen the conditions for bailouts was not easy,

however, and was the source of heated debated between Monti and Merkel in recent weeks and at the summit. Going into the summit, Monti had issued a thinly-veiled jab at Merkel over her opposition to allowing European governments to share debt obligations. Sharing debt is another way to spread individual countries’ debt risk across Europe, but Merkel continued to oppose them at the summit. With debt-sharing ruled out, Monti pushed for the European leaders at the summit to agree to other measures that might increase confidence in Italy’s finances. Easing conditions for countries to take bailouts was one of them. Monti has lamented that Italians have endured the effects of government spending cuts and tax hikes, but that Italy’s government borrowing rates remained high in financial markets.

By Wednesday, the two leaders were downright chummy, with Monti calling Merkel by her first name and emphasizing their “excellent” relations. Merkel, for her part, praised the speed with which Monti’s government has pushed through structural reforms and insisted that it was in Germany’s interest to keep Italy from failing. “If our neighbours in Europe aren’t well, eventually we Germans won’t be in good shape,” she said. Monti nevertheless acknowledged a rough road ahead: the government is embarking on a program of public spending cuts after having pushed divisive labour market reforms through parliament last week. And new unemployment figures have made clear that the recession and the impact of austerity measures are hitting home: Monti termed “unacceptable” that youth unemployment had now hit 36 per cent.

Demand for boat slips guarantees redevelopment will begin

MARKETS COMPANIES

BY HARLEY RICHARDS ADVOCATE BUSINESS EDITOR

SYLVAN LAKE

OF LOCAL INTEREST

The appeal of owning a bit of property on Sylvan Lake remains strong — even if that property is underwater and only a few metres long. About 70 of the 118 boat slips available for sale in the proposed WatersEdge Condominiums & Marina have been sold, said Al Laplante, one of the partners in developer Sylvan Lake Harbour. This demand for slips in the former Sylvan Lake Marina, which have only been on the market since June 23, guarantees that redevelopment there will begin this October, he added. “We’ve already hit our presale requirement for that.” Sylvan Lake Harbour plans to drain and rebuild the marina as part of the first phase of the WatersEdge project. Each of the resulting 179 boat spaces will have its own title, unlike the previous situation at Sylvan Lake Marina, where slips were rented to users on an annual basis. Laplante said the opportunity to own a piece of the new “dockominium” appeals to many. “It’s such a unique opportunity, of being the first-ever to own your own dock slip.” Prices range from $52,000 to $70,000, depending on size, location and the availability of power. “The 52s are all gone and almost all the 70s are gone,” said Laplante. “So the bulk of the slips now are from $58,000 to $66,000.” He estimated that two-thirds of the

buyers are Central Albertans, with most of the remainder living in either Calgary or Edmonton. The majority previously rented boat space there, noted Laplante. Fifty-five of the slips are being held back for sale to purchasers of units in two residential condominiums to be built nearby. The first building will consist of an L-shaped, four-storey structure, with all 40 of its units overlooking the water. The second, four-storey building will add another 15 residential suites, as well as ground-level commercial space. The condominium will have a 94-stall heated parkade and a pair of recreational boats for use by residents. Prices for units in the first building range from about $490,000 to more than $1 million. Interest so far has been good, said Laplante, with one unit sold and four others on hold. If demand warrants, work on the first condo building might also begin in October, he said. The rebuilt marina is expected to be available for use next spring, said Laplante. The first condominium could be ready for occupants a year later. Total development cost of WatersEdge Condominiums & Marina is about $16 million, excluding the price of the land. Laplante said most of the local residents he’s talked to are supportive of the project and pleased to see this investment in Sylvan Lake. hrichards@reddeeradvocate.com

MARKETS CLOSE TORONTO — The Toronto stock market extended a string of gains Wednesday as equities continued to find favour amid expectations that central banks in Europe will come out with new measures to support economic growth. The S&P/TSX composite index gained 65.12 points to 11,913.87 on top of a 252-point surge on Tuesday, while the TSX Venture Exchange was points 16.4 higher at 1,241.9. The U.S. stock markets were closed for the Independence Day holiday. The Canadian dollar was off 0.07 of a cent at 98.7 cents US. All TSX sectors were positive save for some weakness in the consumer staples group. Lift was supplied in part by a 1.63 per cent rise in the consumer discretionary sector, led by gains in auto parts companies following the release of strong U.S. auto sales data on Tuesday. Magna International (TSX:MG) gained $2.42 or 6.05 per cent to $42.43 and Martinrea International (TSX:MRE) was up 27 cents at $8.53. Financials also advanced with Royal Bank (TSX:RY) ahead 63 cents to $53.72 and Scotiabank (TSX:BNS) up 51 cents at $53.84. The TSX has surged about 579 points or 5.1 per cent over the past six sessions to a fresh two-month high amid growing expectations that policy-makers will use fiscal and monetary stimulus to bolster flagging growth. The European Central Bank and the Bank of England are scheduled to meet Thursday. Analysts are expecting the ECB to cut its key rate by up to half a percentage point and the U.K. central bank to boost the amount of money in circulation. “It wouldn;t surprise me much because there aren’t any statistics talking about

how strong the economy is anywhere in the world and inflation is much lower than expected,” said Ian Nakamoto, director of research at MacDougall, MacDougall and MacTier. There was also relief after Europe’s leaders appeared at the end of last week to have finally come up with plans showing they are serious about restoring confidence in the eurozone. Among other things, the plan allows European bailout funds to pump money directly into troubled European banks, rather than make loans to governments to bail out the banks. The move rescues the banks without putting strapped countries deeper in debt. But Nakamoto considers the recent strong gains a relief rally which lacks the means to be more significant. “People have very low expectations,” he said. “With Europe, we’ve been disappointed so many times. Growth is still slow, I don’t see a bottoming process here. And earnings expectations are too high.” Commodity prices were lower in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange following significant increases over the previous three sessions. The August crude contract backed off 61 cents to US$87.05 a barrel late in the afternoon after growing tensions with Iran helped push crude up almost US$4 on Tuesday. That still leaves crude up about US$10 from last Thursday. The energy sector was ahead 0.56 per cent and Cenovus Energy (TSX:CVE) gained 32 cents to C$34.29 while Canadian Oil Sands (TSX:COS) improved by 37 cents to $20.42. The metals and mining sector was up one per cent as the September copper contract dipped two cents to US$3.52 a pound — still up

over five per cent since last Thursday. Ivanhoe Mines (TSX:IVN) slipped 14 cents to C$10.09 while HudBay Minerals (TSX:HBM) rose 20 cents to $8.41. The gold sector was flat as August bullion stepped back $6.80 to US$1,615 an ounce. Barrick Gold Corp. (TSX:ABX) was down 63 cents at C$38.87 after the Canadian mining giant suffered a legal reversal that may affect development of the company’s Pascua Lama project on the border between Argentina and Chile. Argentina’s Supreme Court decided Tuesday to remove injunctions that have blocked key parts of a law to protect glaciers. Barrick argued it shouldn’t need to provide the national government with new environmental assessments.

BID: Alberta, B.C. still must sign off “The measures contained in the OSC’s final recognition orders materially change the regulatory environment sufficient to substantially mitigate the bureau’s competition concerns.” The OSC orders set out the terms under which Maple will be permitted to operate a combined exchange and clearing group involving the TMX along with the alternative Alpha system, Canadian Depository for Securities Ltd. and CDS Clearing and Depository Services Inc. Quebec’s securities regulator, the Autorite des marches financiers, previously published final recognition orders with respect to Maple’s proposed acquisition of TMX Group and Alpha. Both Maple and the TMX Group said they have since been advised that the AMF will soon issue a final recognition order approving Maple’s proposed acquisition of CDS. The proposed takeover still requires approval by the British Columbia and Alberta securities regulators, though Bertrand expressed confidence in both. “Alberta is well in the pipeline,” he said, noting that regulatory concerns about the TSX Venture Exchange are being discussed with B.C. regulators.

“We’re working through that with B.C. and like all the other discussions we have had with regulators over the month we ultimately find solutions — business solutions and regulatory solutions.”

AUTO: Sales up The automaker sold 23,705 vehicles last month, up from 23,576 in June of last year. Chrysler Canada said the June sales results marked the company’s 31st consecutive month of year-over-year sales growth and represents the longest sales streak in the company’s history. Meanwhile, GM Canada dropped 18 per cent, selling only 22,869 vehicles compared to 27,883 last June. The automaker announced last month that it will be closing an assembly plant in Oshawa next year. Leading the Japanese automakers, Toyota Canada sold 16,957 vehicles in June, 70.1 per cent more than last June, while sales at Honda Canada shot up 42.6 per cent to 12,047, compared to 8,451 last June. Nissan Canada broke it’s half-year record, selling 47,105 vehicles -- 8.1 per cent more than it sold in the first half of 2011. June was the company’s second-best month on record, with 9,872 vehicles sold. “With the imminent arrival of the all-new Nissan Altima in dealerships, followed by the all-new Sentra and Pathfinder later this year, we anticipate this success to continue,” said president Allen Childs.

TERPSTRA Jim 1921-2012 On Friday, June 29, 2012, after a long and happy life, we are saddened to announce that our much loved Dad, Opa and Great Opa left his earthly home and is now in his heavenly home with our Mom. We thank God for the many blessings He gave our Dad who cared for everyone he came in contact with and was affectionately known to all of us, family and friends alike as Opa. Dad was born on July 29, 1921 in Saaksum, Holland, the eldest of three children. He lived and worked on the family farm while studying agriculture. During World War II, he was captured and spent two years as a war prisoner on a working farm in Germany. On May 16, 1945 he walked out of Germany a free man. On May 16, 1947 he married our mom, Hilly Bakker, his much loved wife of 54 years. They lived in Oldehove, Holland with three children and in 1950, made the decision to move to Canada as there was no opportunity for advancement in post-war Holland. In February 1951, they travelled by boat, landed in Halifax and then made their way across Canada by train to Edmonton. There, they were met by their sponsors, Mr. and Mrs. Hughes and went to live and work on their farm in Flatbush. They eventually settled in Red Deer in 1958, dad found employment with Central Alberta Dairy Pool, where he worked until his retirement in 1986. They were finally able to purchase their own home and in November, 1963 - dad, mom and seven children moved into our two bedroom, one bathroom home. This was home to dad until he moved to Masterpiece in 2009 and then to Michener Extendicare in 2011 until his passing. Dad was predeceased by our mom in October, 2001 and his son-in-law, Murray in 1989.

Obituaries

In Memoriam

TEELING Madelyn “Lynn” Mrs. Madelyn Lenore “Lynn” Teeling, beloved mother and grandmother, passed away peacefully at the Ponoka General Hospital on Friday, June 29, 2012 at the age of 87 years. Lynn was born on November 24, 1924 at Calgary, Alberta. Lynn spent her childhood with her parents and four younger siblings in DeWinton, Alberta. Their modest home was attached to the back of her father’s general store. Lynn developed her mothering skills early as she was actively involved in raising her younger brothers and twin sisters. She met Jim Teeling in high school in DeWinton and they were married on March 17, 1944 during his service in the airforce. Following the war they lived in Edmonton for Jim’s university training and then in several small towns where Jim taught and Lynn was the loving mother of three sons. Lynn worked at the Red Deer General Hospital for many years and they spent further enjoyable years of retirement living in Red Deer. “Sweet” was the term commonly used to describe Lynn whether by the boys’ friends, co-workers, bridge partners, or the caregivers in her retirement home and, f i n a l l y, t h e h o s p i t a l . H e r pleasing nature and love of people will be fondly remembered by family and friends. Lynn was sweet and made the best sweets. Her baking will be a legacy continued within the family. Lynn will be deeply missed but forever cherished in the hearts of her family and many faithful friends. Lynn leaves three sons, Darrell (Karen) of Edmonton, Gary ( Ya j u n ) o f C h i n a , B r a d y (Valerie) of Ponoka; brother, Ron (Karen) of Red Deer; sister, Carol (Alec) of Three Hills’ special “daughter”, Amy Teeling of Red Deer; and Brother-in-law, Dennis (Shirley) of Calgary. Lynn was blessed with five grandchildren; Michael (Marla), Ryan (Coco), Adam (Chu Chu), Meghan (Brad), and Joel. They in turn gave her nine great grandchildren. She was predeceased by h u s b a n d , J a m e s ; s i s t e r, Ann; and brother, Bob. A celebration of Lynn’s life will be held at Ponoka Funeral Home in Ponoka, Alberta on Friday, July 6, 2012 at 11:00 a.m. If desired, Memorial donations in Lynn’s honor may be made to the charity of your choice.

Children compete in a sack race at Lincoln Park in Valparaiso, Fla. during a Independence Day celebration, Wednesday.

“THE WHEEL DEAL”

Blackout makes for hot Fourth of July BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS MOUNT VERNON, Va. — George Washington never had air conditioning, but he knew how to keep cool: a mansion with lots of windows elevated on the banks of a wide, rolling river and lots of ice cream, maybe with a little brandy. It was a little like the old days without electricity Wednesday, as the nation’s capital region celebrated Independence Day the better part of a week into a widespread blackout that left millions of residents sweltering in 90-plus degree heat without air conditioning. Utilities have slowly been restoring service knocked out by a freak storm Friday from the Midwest to the MidAtlantic, and at least 26 people have died. At George Washington’s Mount Vernon estate, one of the most popular Fourth of July attractions was a demonstration of 18th-century ice cream making, one of Washington’s favourite desserts. Historical interpreters Gail Cassidy and Anette Ahrens showed the crowds how cocoa beans were roasted and ground into a paste for chocolate ice cream, made using ice hauled up in massive blocks from the Potomac River and stored underground to last as long into the summer as possible. As for beverages, Washington was no stranger to alcohol, enjoying imported Madeira wine from Spain, distilling his own whiskey and enjoying a fruity brandy cocktail called Cherry Bounce. Washington was his own architect at Mount

Deadlock over NATO supplies ends, but bitterness remains BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

PAKISTAN-U.S. TIES

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan — Pakistan’s decision to end a seven-month blockade of NATO troop supplies was a rare bright spot in relations with the U.S., but disagreements over issues like American drone strikes and Islamabad’s alleged support for Taliban militants still hamper a relationship vital to stabilizing neighbouring Afghanistan. Even before Pakistan shut down the supply line in November in retaliation for American airstrikes that killed 24 of its troops, the relationship was plagued by anger and mistrust. Islamabad was livid with the unilateral U.S. raid that killed Osama bin Laden in May 2011 and a CIA contractor who shot to death two Pakistanis a few months earlier. The deadlock over NATO supplies ended Tuesday when the U.S. apologized for the deaths of the Pakistani troops and Islamabad agreed to reopen the route. The accord should ease tensions somewhat, but tackling other problems could prove difficult because the long stalemate that followed the November attack intensified bad feelings in both capitals.

“Given the history of the past 12 to 18 months, there is a huge residue of mistrust and mutual suspicion,” said Tariq Fatemi, a former Pakistani ambassador to the U.S. “I would not rule out the possibility of a small incident derailing the normalization process.” U.S. officials had expected the first trucks carrying NATO supplies to begin crossing into Afghanistan on Wednesday, but bureaucratic delays held that up. Trucks are now scheduled to begin moving across the border Thursday morning, although it will take days to get back to levels prior to the attack, said Pakistani security officials, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to the media. The reopening could save the U.S. hundreds of millions of dollars, since Pakistan’s blockade forced Washington to rely more heavily on a longer, costlier route that leads into Afghanistan through Central Asia. Pakistan is also expected to gain financially, since the U.S. intends to free up $1.1 billion in military aid that has been frozen for the past year.

Vernon, “and he was very good at it,” said Dennis Pogue, associate director for preservation at Mount Vernon. The piazza, which runs the length of the mansion, is “kind of California living in the 18th century,” Pogue said. The location, atop a sloping hill along the Potomac, catches cool breezes. Lots of windows and shutters allow for the regulation of sun and wind. And the distinctive cupola on the mansion roof serves as the mansion’s air conditioning unit, funneling hot air out the top and drawing cooler air in at the ground level. Visitors on Wednesday gathered on the mansion’s back porch, a piazza overlooking the Potomac where breezes rolled through. “It feels good out here. It’s the same thing we do in Texas,” said Chris Moore of Austin, Texas, sitting with his wife, Dina. The two had come to Virginia to see their son graduate from officer training at The Basic School at Quantico Marine Corps Base. Moore said he opted for the smaller crowds at Mount Vernon as opposed to the massive Fourth of July Celebration on the National Mall because it afforded a better place to relax and contemplate the founding of the nation, especially since Mount Vernon on Wednesday hosted a naturalization ceremony for 100 new citizens from 47 different countries. “This place is incredible. It’s just the kind of place that people need to see,” he said, noting the divided nature of the country’s current politics. “We all need to step back and look at where we started.”
