Olsen granted full parole MAN WHO ORPHANED FIVE CHILDREN MUST ABIDE BY TWO SPECIAL CONDITIONS ‘MAYBE SOMETHING GOOD WILL COME OUT OF HIS IRRESPONSIBLE, SELFISH, ARROGANT BEHAVIOUR, AND IF HIS ATTITUDE HAS CHANGED, THAT’S GOOD.’

BY LAURA TESTER ADVOCATE STAFF A drunk driver who killed the Red Deer parents of five children in February 2010 was granted full parole on Wednesday. Chad Mitchell Olsen, 25, formerly of Sedalia, was granted full parole after a 90-minute Parole Board of Canada hearing was held at the downtown Red Deer parole office. He was granted day parole last December after serving a seven-month term in federal prison for the deaths of Brad and Krista Howe, both in their mid 30s, early on Feb. 7, 2010. The two-member parole board panel ruled that Olsen, who has been living at a halfway house in Red Deer, did not pose undue risk to the public. Full parole would help him ease back into full integration with society as well. The parole board issued two special conditions — that he abstain from alcohol and that he attend psychological counselling, which he had been doing until recently.

Chad Olsen

A parole officer will continue to monitor Olsen until his sentence formally ends on Oct. 26, 2014. Outside the parole board office, Sandra Green, the mother of Krista Howe, said she anticipated Olsen would receive full parole. “I am not mad at him, but angry at the legal system,” said Green. Near the end of the hearing, Olsen wiped tears from his eyes as he said sorry to Sandra Green “for all the suffering that I have caused her and her

family.” Green said that Olsen shed tears during his sentencing, so seeing that kind of emotion was nothing new to her. If Olsen was earnest and sincere in speaking about his commitments to give back to the community, including plans to talk to high school students about the dangers of drinking and driving, then full parole is a good thing, Green said. “Maybe something good will come

out of his irresponsible, selfish, arrogant behaviour and if his attitude has changed, that’s good,” said Green. Green added she would welcome Olsen to join her in fighting for increased drinking and driving penalties. “We can’t change what he did,” said Green. “It’s the way it’s going to be, but it might not have to be that way for all those other Canadians who are joining our ranks, those other families who are losing their kids.” Green read a victim impact statement to the parole board, saying how much her daughter and son-in-law were devoted to their five children, their engineering jobs, their church and other community activities. The children, aged seven to 17, are now being looked after by Krista Howe’s sister, Karla Green. “They didn’t have the chance to fulfil their lifelong dreams and yet Chad still has that option,” said Green. “A stranger to us made a final choice. He gets seven months and we get life with no chance for appeal.”

Proposed union’s arms haven’t reached Rebels yet CAPTAIN SAYS NO ONE HAS CONTACTED HIM ABOUT FORMATION OF UNION FOR CHL PLAYERS

Basically, like all of the players interviewed by various media outlets regarding the attempted formation of the Canadian Hockey League Players Association, Red Deer Rebels captain Adam Kambeitz hasn’t been contacted by any of the organizers. “The only thing I’ve heard is just what I’ve seen floating around on Twitter,” Kambeitz said Wednesday. “I also read one article on it.” The proposed CHL players union, which is primarily seeking increased and extended education benefits for the players in the Western, Ontario and Quebec major junior leagues, has supposedly been 14 months in the making, said spokesman Derek Clarke, who went public just this week. “Players and agents feel this is long overdue,” Clarke told the Windsor Star. “The CHL has done a great job producing players and offering some education packages. The fact is more can be done. We’re hoping to get a positive reception from the CHL because this benefits kids and because it’s a positive step for education.” While Kambeitz had no prior knowledge of the union being formed, he admitted he heard from several former Western Hockey League players that it was a process that had some legs. “I mentioned it to some of the guys at the gym this summer who played in the league before and they just said they heard it was supposed to be happening for years now and it hasn’t happened,” said the Coaldale native. “Really, to the extent that I’ve heard about it, and that’s just seeing on Twitter . . . it just seems like it’s not a legit thing. To me it seems like it’s rumours

PLEASE RECYCLE

right now.” Not that Kambeitz would argue with a union stand that would allow WHL players to tap into the league’s education fund after the currently allotted time of 18 months following the completion of a player’s final season of major junior hockey. Players have within that time span to either turn to pro hockey or pursue an education, and if they sign an NHL contract the funds are no longer available. The proposed union stand would keep the education money available indefinitely, a stance Kambeitz would welcome. “I don’t think I have a problem with that. I do think the CHL does a really good job, the education fund they provide us with is phenomenal,” he said. “But I think that would be a pretty cool thing. (Extending the education money availability) would be a neat thing.” Clarke said a players union would also focus on Hockey Canada. “The CHL is profitable and has a great program of education and promoting players to the next level,” he told the Windsor Star. “Hockey Canada uses CHL players for the World Junior, Canada-Russia Challenge and some of that money should come back to the players.” Canadian Hockey League president David Branch released a series of statements Wednesday regarding the attempted organization of the 1,300 CHL players. “To date, the league has not received any formal notification on the formation of this association or any intent to organize our players,” said Branch.

STORIES FROM A1

PAROLE: Olsen has received support from family, fiancé Olsen pleaded guilty in April 2011 to two counts of impaired driving causing death. His blood alcohol level was nearly three times the legal limit when he sped through a red light in his pickup truck and hit the Howes’ car at about 2 a.m. Olsen was originally given a sentence of two years and three months. The Crown appealed and Olsen’s jail term was lengthened to three-and-a-half years last October. Two months later, on Dec. 16, Olsen was granted day parole and allowed to leave Bowden Institution. The sentence also included a five-year driving ban once Olsen was released from prison. Olsen’s parole officer remarked on his positive progress since leaving jail. Olsen completed a National Substance Abuse Program within jail, and he is almost finished a “maintenance program” in the community. The parole officer said that she has no suspicions at all that Olsen has had any alcohol. The parole officer said that Olsen has good family support and his fiance, a non-drinker, is there for him. Olsen will live at his fiance’s home in Red Deer, now that he’s received full parole. He has a full-time job, but hopes to go back to school, perhaps to finish his petroleum engineering program at SAIT in Calgary. Olsen told the parole board that he thinks about what he did on Feb. 7, 2010, every day and about the impact it made on the Howe family. He said that he loved adrenalin sports when he was younger and then he started speeding on the

Don Raincock, a Red Deer Emergency Services captain, talks to a driver following a T-bone collision that left her SUV upside down on 22nd Street Wednesday. There were no injuries when a compact car and the SUV collided at the Taylor Drive and 22nd Street intersection around 1 p.m. Emergency Services closed northbound Taylor and westbound 22nd Street while the debris was cleared. Please see related video at www.reddeeradvocate.com. Penn West notified the ERCB on Tuesday about the spill. But investigators still have to determine how it happened and the age and condition of the pipeline. Moffatt said Penn West inspects pipelines on a “reasonably regular basis,” and is interested in finding out how the leak occurred to determine whether any additional processes can be put in place. The Calgary-based company turned off flow to the line after discovering a drop in pressure on Tuesday afternoon. When a helicopter survey didn’t pinpoint the leak, workers walked the line and discovered the spill on Tuesday evening, added Moffatt. There were no injuries or evacuations. And Barter said the ERCB is working with Penn West to ensure appropriate cleanup and mitigation takes place. road. In six years of driving, he had acquired 16 driving infractions. Drinking became a problem when he started college. Olsen said he would take a cab home when he was in town, but when he was back home in the rural area, he and his friends thought it was OK to drink and drive home. Sedalia is southeast of Stettler. On the night that the Howes died, Olsen said he had two beer and two double rum drinks at a friend’s house. He then went to a bar with a friend, but didn’t have anything to drink there because he left shortly after. Olsen said he felt exhausted and tired as he drove down 30th Avenue. As the Howes prepared to turn left from Ironstone Drive onto 30th Avenue, they were hit by Olsen’s southbound pickup truck. After the crash, Olsen said someone approached his vehicle to find out if he was OK. “I am fine, just go check on them,” Olsen recalled saying. Olsen said he hasn’t driven since Feb. 7, 2010, nor has he had a drink. He said that perhaps he’ll be able to drive again in four or five years’ time. Olsen said. “I have done something that’s affected the community and the family quite drastically and I should deal with that,” Olsen said. Olsen’s mother said that it was a “huge step” for him to acknowledge he is an alcoholic. Olsen said he is waiting to hear back from his insurance company and legal counsel in regards to a civil lawsuit of $3.5 million issued by the children of the Howes. When the parole board asked how he would honour the memory of the victims, Olsen paused and then said, “Just help out in any way I can, give back to the community like they (the Howes) did and help the family.” “How about staying sober for the rest of your life?” asked the parole board member. “For sure,” replied Olsen. ltester@reddeeradvocate.com

UNION: North America’s best player scholarship program “We are of the opinion that no junior hockey league in the world has made more changes to support the best interest of its players both on and off the ice as the CHL. This is evidenced by our drug education and anti-doping program, our concussion management program, numerous charitable programs and our Respect in Sport Program as developed by Sheldon Kennedy in the area of player abuse,” added Branch. “In addition, the CHL provides North America’s best player scholarship program, funded through the league’s ownership.” Rebels owner Brent Sutter agreed with Branch’s take. “I don’t know any more than what’s been released. Let’s just see how it unfolds,” said Sutter. “I do know what we do for the players as far as organizations, as far as each member club,” he continued, adding that the Rebels’ cost of billeting, providing equipment and other overall expenses for each player is between $30,000 and $35,000 per year. “And that never decreases, it increases, so your expenses are certainly right up there. I know that in the Western League all the players are treated with such high standards and we have a great education package in place. We do a lot for the players. They are treated first class in Red Deer and we don’t cut corners on anything. “I don’t know any more than what anyone else is reading.

This is the latest in a series of pipeline spills this year. Earlier this summer, about 230,000 litres of heavy crude oil spilled from a pumping station on an Enbridge Inc. pipeline onto farmland near Elk Point, Alta., northeast of Edmonton. Before that, nearly 800,000 litres of oil spilled from a Pace Oil & Gas Ltd. well about 200 kms from the Northwest Territories border. The Plains Midstream Canada break in June involved 160,000 to 480,000 litres of oil leaking from a pipeline that ruptured beneath the Red Deer River near Sundre. Environmental groups are calling for an expansive look at pipeline safety in Alberta. But Barter called so many pipeline problems “an anomaly . . . It’s not typical.” lmichelin@reddeeradvocate.com

Another environmental cleanup is underway in Central Alberta after nearly 2,000 barrels of mostly contaminated water from a leaking pipeline soaked a canola field east of Red Deer. The Energy Resources Conservation Board revealed on Wednesday that it’s investigating the latest pipeline break after about 1,900 barrels (or 300,000 litres) were released from a Penn West Exploration line on Tuesday onto private farmland about 10 km east of Red Deer, near Joffre. According to ERCB spokesman Darin Barter, about 97 per cent of this spill is contaminated water, while three percent is oil. But Penn West’s manager of government and industry relations, Greg Moffatt, believes there’s hardly any oil in the spill; “It’s 99.9 per cent water.” The water could contain some hydrocarbon contamination, however, as it was naturally present in an oil formation and was being moved along the pipeline in order to be disposed of, said Moffatt. The tainted water was slated to be reinjected into a nonproducing well. Moffatt maintains the leaked liquid was tested and found not to be too saline. But the full extent of environmental damage hasn’t yet been assessed. Unlike a Plains Midstream Canada pipeline break in June that allowed up to 3,000 barrels of oil to leak into the Red Deer River, this spill is not near water sources. Barter said a nearby slough is being protected with berms. Penn West, which had up to 20 contractors working with vacuum trucks at the site on Wednesday, intends to use whatever measures are necessary to reclaim the farmland. Moffatt said, “We’ll remove some soil if that’s what’s needed to return the canola field to production.”

Record canola production ahead BY THE CANADIAN PRESS

There have been some disappointing yields come in from some of the early crops anyway,” he said. Bender also noted that weather is still a fickle factor. “Frost certainly could really impact quality right now and hail still could. Hail likelihood is less. It’s decreasing once we’re into the end of August, but that’s still a possibility. But frost would probably be the most detrimental,” he explained. “If we can make it another couple

EDMONTON — The Alberta government is enacting a sweeping plan for its controversial oilsands region in another attempt to balance development and the environment. “Alberta’s last period of hyper-growth clearly demonstrated the need for responsible long-term use planning,” Environment Minister Diana McQueen said Wednesday as she announced the plan for the lower Athabasca region. “In a new time of strong growth, the need to plan for the area that contains our main economic driver is abundantly clear.” The strategy, which comes into force Sept.1, creates six new conservation areas that total three times the size of Banff National Park. Existing conventional oil and natural gas tenures will be honoured in the protected areas. But no oilsands development will be allowed unless access can be had from outside the boundaries through, for example, horizontal drilling. That means talks will begin for 19 energy companies on cancelling their leases and compensating them. No new tenures will be sold. The plan also increases protected habitat for threatened woodland caribou by prohibiting energy and forestry activity in the Dillon River Conservation Region, which is to be expanded from 27,000 hectares to 192,000 hectares. The plan also legally commits the government to establish contaminant limits for air, surface and ground water, and sets up firm timetables for that to be done. McQueen said the limits will be legally enforceable through the regulatory system. “There will be thresholds and triggers and targets. We will work with industry so that they will know they can’t go over those numbers.” The plan addresses infrastructure and planning concerns in Fort McMurray, and also promises tourism op-

portunities through nine new provincial recreation areas. A regional trail system is also promised. McQueen said it will cost about $30 million to set up infrastructure for the new parks. Simon Dyer of the environmental think-tank Pembina Institute called the plan a good start. He said it was “problematic” to allow existing energy and mineral tenures to continue in conservation areas, but welcomed the exclusion of oilsands mining. He did point out that the conservation areas are clustered where there is little bitumen. “I think we’re going to have to revisit this, particularly around caribou,” Dyer said. “The plan only protects around 20 per cent of caribou habitat in the region and caribou continue to decline.” Nor does it address the growing greenhouse gas emissions from the oilsands, he said. “Alberta needs to take a similar level of seriousness to address growing greenhouse gas pollution.” David Pryce of the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers said the plan is one that the industry can live with. “The overall product is very good,” he said. “The province tried very hard to strike a balance over where the value of the resource is and I think they’ve done a pretty good job of it.” Pryce said companies that will lose oilsands leases are likely to seek compensation for both the value of the lease and the profits they won’t be able to earn. “The lost opportunity cost is an important part of the discussion for industry.” The purchase value of

weeks here, that’ll mitigate that risk considerably.” On his farm near Grenfell, in southeast Saskatchewan, Ryan Maurer knows all too well about wet weather. Much of his farm was flooded in 2010 and 2011. Maurer said he’s still fighting a lot of moisture and doesn’t think there will be many bumper crops in the area. Still, Maurer hopes to harvest about 10 to 15 per cent above average for the area. His hard red spring wheat is a semi-dwarf variety that he said is “standing well.” “We’ll see when we get in with the combines, but I’m hoping that it’s good quality.”

But Burnett is also cautious. “You’re always a bit reluctant to call it a bumper until you get the crop in the bin and we do the final counting on it, but generally speaking, you know prospects are good, and because of the drought in the U.S. prices are high.” Kevin Bender, president of the Western Canadian Wheat Growers Association, said he’s about two to three weeks from starting harvest on his central Alberta farm near Bentley. Bender, his father and brother grow barley, canola and wheat on about 1,800 hectares. The wheat and barley look good, he said. The canola looks good, but it can surprise you “once you get into it.” Bender knows some people are talk-

REGINA — Statistics Canada says Prairie farmers are anticipating record canola production this year, as well as increases in wheat and barley. The agency said in its latest crop estimate released Wednesday that Prairie farmers anticipate a record 15.2 million tonnes of canola — surpassing the record of 14 million tonnes set in 2011. Total wheat production on the Prairies is expected to reach 24.8 million tonnes in 2012, up 9.7 per cent from 22.6 million tonnes in 2011. Barley production on the Prairies is anticipated to rise 23.8 per cent to nine million tonnes because of an expected record average yield of 65.1 bushels per acre. “Overall, weather conditions in the West in 2012 have been closer to normal, following two years of excess moisture conditions in parts of Manitoba and Saskatchewan,” says the report. There is talk among farmers and producer groups that it could be a bumper crop. Add that to a crippling drought withering fields south of the border and pushing up prices. “From a historical point of view, that size of crop we would see maybe once in a decade or so,” said Bruce Burnett, a Winnipeg-based weather and crop specialist for the Canadian Wheat Board. The board, which recently branded itself CWB after losing its monopoly on the sale of Western wheat and grain, says production of the six major grains and oilseeds could yield 51.6 million tonnes this year — better than the fiveyear average by about four million tonnes. “In the decade between 2001 and 2010 we had about 50 million tonnes only twice, so you can see ... it’s a pretty substantial production.”

Harper’s science problem Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s setting of a Dec. 31 deadline for completion of the environmental review of the Northern Gateway project now is looking somewhat hasty. Harper is keen to get the review and approval process going, but his commitment to a hard and fast deadline seems out of step with the pace at which his own Fisheries Department can supply evidence that review will need. Canadians need to know this project gets the scrutiny it deserves. The prime minister earlier this month assured Canadians that the fate of the plan by Enbridge to lay pipeline from Alberta to the British Columbia coast south of Kitimat rests on science. The project has many critics and faces formidable obstacles, including the buy-in of all the First Nations bands that claim traditional rights to a lot of the land affected. British Columbia Premier Christy Clark wants to know what is in it for

OTHERVIEW her province, since B.C. gets little of the profit but will shoulder most of the environmental risk. Now reports on documents filed at the National Energy Board indicate that the Department of Fisheries and Oceans was unable to give the review panel a complete picture of the risk presented to the nearly 1,000 streams and tributaries the new pipeline will cross. It has not completed the work and anticipates it may take longer than the time allotted: “should the project be approved, our review will continue into the regulatory permitting phase,” department officials wrote in a June 6 letter. The final approval of the project rests with the federal cabinet. The recommendations of the NEB’s panel to cabinet are made following

the consideration of concerns expressed at public hearings and the evidence from scientific sources of how environmental threats can be mitigated or compensated for. The Department of Fisheries and Oceans also noted in its correspondence that it has differences of opinion with Enbridge over the level of threat posed to some of the streams the pipeline crosses. Excessively long environmental reviews that give a floor to long queues of intervenors duplicating concerns expressed merely ties up good economic development. But Harper’s emphasis on a deadline may prove too hopeful and do the broader process no favour. The real issue is whether, with good understanding of the potential impact on the environment, the merits of the project and the ability to mitigate the relative threats support its approval. Mitigation is difficult if good environmental monitoring is not there.

Harper’s government is in the midst of cuts to staff at Fisheries and Oceans field offices, including those at Prince George and Smithers, which would have been in the lead of that work. These are all issues the review panel must consider. The Fisheries Department not only has to assess the environmental threat, but also the federal government’s capacity to protect through monitoring and responding to any impact. Harper’s desire for an efficient, timely review is understandable, particularly in Canada’s economic climate. But Canadians need to trust that it will be done right. Artificial deadlines undermine that trust. Harper should publicly commit to extending the deadline if the NEB shows his schedule curtails a solid examination of the environmental threats.

So-called athletes who were supposed to win gold didn’t even get past the heats and to top it off, the same committee picked the captain of the women’s soccer team who didn’t get even get into the final to be the flag bearer at the closing ceremonies when the only athlete to win a gold medal for the country (who incidentally never got a mention on the Canadian sports channels because all we got was mainly second and third places finishers over and over again) should have been the flag bearer. But I suppose that’s how the system works in this country: you don’t have to win, just show up. Another very poor show, Canada. James Taylor Red Deer

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Music festival was great, but where were all the fans? My wife Barb and I attended our fifth consecutive Central Music Festival over the weekend, this year’s manifesting when the stars and weather gods wonderfully aligned in conjunction with — as Diamond Joe White so wisely proclaimed animatedly on Sunday afternoon — “the best natural amphitheatre for an outdoor music festival in all of Canada!” (Or, did he say, “The world”?) With the colorful and classy vendors’ village, tasty food booths, kids’ tent, beer garden, wide selection of world class entertainers “playing in the field of music” (this year’s theme) with big names like Morgan Davis, Amy Bishop, Sista Monica, plus the many extremely talented local musicians including Heartbroke Heroes, Steve Arsenault, The Jacobson Four, Lesley Schatz, Joel Kamps et al), combined with the perfect weather and the best natural bowl in the world, you would think attendance records would have been broken. Not so — an extremely frustrating and disappointing outcome for all the generous sponsors, very hard-working organizers and volunteers, and the dedicated followers of the CMF, perhaps suggesting that next year’s production either be postponed for a year or two, or relocated (despite the incredible site) to outside the 100-km radius zone, thereby making it more attractive or legitimate? So many people seem only too willing and able to attend festivals in Calgary, Edmonton, Canmore and Camrose, yet find it inconvenient to support dedicated local efforts (and talents) within a beautiful seven-km drive north of the city off the old C&E Trail.

Silver, bronze medals not signs of Olympic success The Canadian Olympic Committee chairman stated prior to the beginning of the games that he expected Canada to improve to a top-12 finish, two more than at the Beijing Olympics, and was a “little disappointed that they only finish in 13th place.” I don’t know where he gets his positioning from but in actual fact Canada finished in 36th position with only one gold medal. One gold and they finished in 13th place. Is he saying that because they got a total of 18 medals in total, with five second-place and 12 third-place finishes that’s good enough for 13th? Is his head in the sand? Is he saying that an athlete who doesn’t even get in the final of an event (using one example — boxing) that person is equal to the winner of the final? In other words, a bronze medal is equal to a gold medal. That’s absolute nonsense. If the Canadian Olympic Committee is satisfied in any way with the results of these Olympics, then they should immediately all resign en block.

One of the main problems in this country is that there is very little sport in schools and certainly no competitive sports. Competitive sports should be part of the school curriculum starting in elementary schools, like in all European and U.K. schools. In Canada, all sports are privately operated with parents having to pay the full amount from a very early age and I’m sure that every family cannot afford to pay for their children to go and if they do go, as my three very young grand-daughters do, they are being taught by willing adults who give up their valuable time but don’t even know the rules of the sport and say things to the children and their parents that it’s not about winning, it’s all about being able to participate. Nonsense. It’s all about winning! A good example is on the island of Jamaica. The young children in elementary schools start in third grade to complete against other schools in all sports, especially running, cricket and football. They run to school, they run home from school and they run against each other during these runs and all the time they are watched by the gym teachers at the schools, who pick out the ones they think have talent and as they move up to high school. This continues and once a year the big event in athletics is at the huge stadium in Kingston where all the top grammar (high school) athletes compete against each other, the supporters all wearing the colours of their school uniforms and the top winners are then chosen to be coached by professionals. And what do you get? People like Usain Bolt,

Nation remembers Layton BY THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA — There was an unapologetically partisan bite to the message of love, hope and optimism Wednesday as Jack Layton was remembered on Parliament Hill a year after his untimely death. The former NDP leader’s political causes — and their ongoing pursuit — were front and centre as a small crowd gathered under the shadow of the Peace Tower to memorialize the man who led the party to an electoral breakthrough. “I miss him dearly, but he would be telling us all right now to roll up those sleeves, get to work and get Photo by THE CANADIAN PRESS moving with making a difference,” NDP MP Paul DeOlivia Chow writes a war told several dozen Layton admirers. Dewar then listed some NDP priorities — a “little message make shift bit of homework,” he called it — starting with restor- memorial wall bearing ing full health care coverage to refugee claimants. th “It’s a shame that the Conservatives have cut it,” m e s s a g e s f o r h e r husband, the late Jack Dewar said. Though it comes as little surprise that a memorial Layton in Toronto on to a political lifer such as Layton would engage in Wednesday some bald partisanship, it nonetheless seemed incongruent with the tone of the gathering.

In Ottawa, lobbyist Robin MacLachlan, a former NDP staffer, called Wednesday’s memorial a celebration of Layton’s life in politics and the community. “For Jack there wasn’t much of a difference: community was politics for Jack,” MacLachlan told the Parliament Hill crowd. Rita Hutchinson, 26, clutched the “Love” poster as she stood listening to the tributes under the Peace Tower. She said she’s been homeless at times and appreciated Layton’s position on low-income housing and helping those in society who fall through the cracks. His influence got her interested in politics last year, she said. “It was actually somebody who was real in politics and I’d never seen that before. I was always, like, ‘I don’t want to get into it, it’s just dirty,”’ said Hutchinson.

CASH IN AT THE SHOW IN RED DEER! ONLY 3 DAYS REMAINING! The Canadian Coin Association will be in Red Deer starting on Tuesday, August 21st, and they want you to bring in your old coin collections for a FREE EVALUATION. Based on condition, collectability and various other factors, coins minted before 1968 can bring in significant prices. Representing coin collectors from all over the world, the CCA can offer very large amounts for individual coins and coin collections. Offering their services FREE OF CHARGE, CCA experts will evaluate any coin put in front of them and give you the compensation you deserve. So whether you have coin collections or even individual pieces, bring them on down to the show and discover their true value. During a recent CCA event, Dan Wilkinson, a bricklayer from Kamloops, walked in with a box full of coins he got as a child from his grandfather. Not knowing their true value, he brought in his collection for our coin experts to examine. “We uncovered a 1953 Elizabeth Half dollar, valued at just over $1,200”, explains Roy Simpson. “He also brought us a bunch of his old Canadian and American coins that we were able to analyze and evaluate. Even though they

didn’t have rare mintages, they were still extremely valuable due to their silver content.” Mr Wilkinson was able to leave the coin show with over $2,700! With the silver market being as high as it is, this is the time to turn those old coins into a healthy payday. CCA has a staff of recognized and experienced experts that not only can evaluate your coins but other pieces of silver as well! Old tea sets, stamps collections from the Franklin Mint and even silver bars are all examples of items they purchase on the spot. During a recent show in Moncton, CCA was able to offer an incredible $4,200 for a Canadian Victoria Dime, minted in 1884! Certain coins hold very large values due to many contributing factors, such as the year it was minted and the amount of coins minted that year as well. CCA experts will sit down with you and explain all of the intricacies associated with your coins and will then offer you a value based on the rarity and also the silver content of the coin. CCA’s International collectors are also interested in the gold market as well and are looking for coins from all around the world. British Sovereigns, Maple Leafs, Double Eagle gold coins and even Gold Francs are all prime examples of gold coins CCA is looking

for on behalf of their collectors. Although much of their focus is on the numismatic community, CCA also focuses their time on seeking other forms of gold as well. With the market rising, all of your broken gold, jewelry and even your dental gold can be turned into money in your pocket. Due to their international recognition and large database of collectors, the Canadian Coin Association has the ability to make on the spot purchases on their behalf. So whether you have an old necklace or a coin collection you started as child, bring it on over the show nearest you and take advantage of this incredible opportunity!

One year later, two questions remain:

What killed Jack Layton? And does the public have the right to know the health of its leaders?

BY HELEN BRANSWELL THE CANADIAN PRESS TORONTO — A year after his death Canadians are still in the dark about what actually killed Jack Layton, who mere weeks before dying had asked voters to let him lead Canada. His family has held firm in its resolve to keep the precise cause of Layton’s death a secret. And Canadians in the main don’t seem to care; many roundly chastised journalists who raised questions in the period after Layton’s rapid decline and death last summer. Widespread admiration and affection for the late NDP leader may be behind the difficulty the electorate seems to have in separating emotion over his passing from the issue at stake. But if so, Canadians may be missing a key point about why people should care about the health of their wouldbe leaders, some experts say. It’s not about attempting to sully Layton’s reputation or legacy. It’s not even about Layton. It’s about whether voters have the right to know if, to the best of their knowledge, politicians believe they’ll be able to fulfil the role they’re asking voters to give them. Dr. Lawrence Altman has explored the health of U.S. political candidates for decades as the medical reporter for the New York Times. He says it’s surprising that at this point in history a political leader could die of an undisclosed illness — and says it is unlikely American media outlets would have let the issue go easily. “I think the Times has taken the position that this is information the public is entitled to know,” Altman says of the general issue of leading politicians’ health. Altman is researching a book he hopes to write about political leaders and their health status disclosure. “My position is that there should be transparency,” adds Altman, who while still writing for the Times is also a senior fellow at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars in Washington, D.C. “There’s no reason any illness should keep somebody from running for office. It’s up to the public to decide whether that illness interferes with the ability to carry out the functions of office or whether that person should be elected. But that’s up to the electorate. The issue to me is that the electorate should be fully informed.” Questions still linger about the degree of information Canadian voters had about the state of the NDP leader’s health when they went to the polls in May of 2011. Layton had disclosed a February 2010 diagnosis of prostate cancer, though he never revealed what form of treatment he received for it. And Layton was vague about a surgery he’d undergone to repair a hip fracture incurred while exercising in March 2011 — an unusual event in a seemingly fit man of his age. (This fracture figures prominently in a theory advanced by Dr. Lorne Brandes, a Winnipeg oncologist and CTV.ca health columnist, that Layton had metastatic prostate cancer. His article can be read here: http://healthblog.ctv.ca/post/Did-prostate-cancer-

kill-Jack-Layton.a spx.) When a shockingly gaunt Layton, his voice barely recognizable, announced in July 2011 that he was temporarily stepping aside to again fight cancer, he told Canadians the new battle was against a second, previously undetected form of the disease. He declined to name it. And to this day, his widow, MP Olivia Chow, and his children have all declined likewise. Chow’s says that to disclose what killed her husband would discourage people fighting that form of cancer. In a recent interview with The Canadian Press, she said she believes withholding the information is the right way to go. “I think that (I’m) even more convinced that it was the right decision, that we don’t have to (say more),” she said. “People know, it’s a cancer, it’s cancer cells. It’s not as if we’re not saying what he died of, he died of cancer.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ‘I THINK THAT (I’M) EVEN MORE CONVINCED THAT IT WAS THE RIGHT DECISION . . . WE DON’T NEED TO GO INTO WHAT KIND OF CANCER BECAUSE THOSE PEOPLE THAT HAVE THAT KIND OF CANCER WILL NOT REACT WELL AND WHY INFLICT THAT ON PEOPLE?’ — MP OLIVIA CHOW, JACK LAYTON’S WIDOW

We don’t need to go into what kind of cancer because those people that have that kind of cancer will not react well and why inflict that on people?” Chow says the only people who ask her about the cause of her husband’s death are reporters. Journalists who have given voice to suspicions that Layton’s second cancer was really metastasized prostate cancer have generally been chided by news consumers. Patrick Lagace, a columnist for Montreal’s La Presse, wrote a couple of pointed pieces on the issue. “Readers were absolutely incensed that I would bring up the question. To most of those who did react, it was an entirely private issue,” he says in an email exchange. “To some of them, which is shocking to me, if Mr Layton did run knowing his odds were grim, well it was up to him and we had nothing to say. All in all, I’d say that a very large majority of my readers thought it

was not a matter for reporters to discuss or question.” Norman Spector, a former senior political aide and now a political commentator, says at this point, the cause of Layton’s death is a matter for historians. Whether they’ll delve into it, or whether Layton’s family later chooses to reveal which form of cancer killed the popular leader, there’s no pressing public interest at this point, Spector says. There was, however, a public interest before the election, he says. And there is something to be learned for the future. “The lesson we should draw from this whole experience is that political leaders in Canada as in the United States should have regular health exams and should release that information to the public. That’s my view,” says Spector, who was chief of staff to former prime minister Brian Mulroney. Voters have a right to know if they

Top: NDP Leader Jack Layton leaves the stage at the party’s 50th anniversary convention in Vancouver on June 19, 2011. It seems the house that Jack built still looks about the same to most Canadians. Fifty-nine per cent of respondents to a Canadian Press Harris-Decima survey say the NDP of today is similar to when Jack Layton led it. Above: On the steps of Parliament Hill a photograph of Jack Layton is surrounded with flowers, a bottle of Orange Crush and other messages to commemorate the first anniversary of Layton’s death during a gathering on Parliament Hill on Wednesday.

are likely going to be led by the person seeking their support, he says. “I think it’s important just as the parties have a responsibility to put forward their platforms and their commitments and their fiscal framework that we have a sense that the people we’re voting for are going to be there.” In our system of government, a leader who steps aside due to ill health or who dies is replaced by their party, not the general public, Spector notes. So if the NDP had won the 2011 election, Canadians would have ended up with a new prime minister — picked by NDP party members — just two months after Layton had been sworn into office. “If I’m voting Conservative, I want to know if it’s Stephen Harper or Vic Toews who’s going to be the leader,” says Spector. “I mean, (it’s) pretty important, right? Especially if Stephen Harper is making a commitment that he won’t open certain issue that somebody else might open.”

Arrowhead corn is as high as the proverbial pachyderm’s eye and will be prime in a week. We do successive plantings of some of the usual stuff. Sowings one and two of Green Arrow have produced our best pea harvest ever, and row number three is starting to blossom. We will soon be enjoying new potatoes from planting #5 of Norlands. We’ll wait a little to dig and store our few hills of Bintjes, the variety that makes the famous frites in Belgium, and the best fries we have ever made at home. But our gardening as an extreme outdoors recreation involves growing vegetables that are rare in our area.. For example, we are regularly harvesting hybrid Imperial Star artichokes, the only annual artichoke we know of that produces the tasty thistle in the first year from seeding. The Cavolo Nero, Nero de Tuscana, or black Tuscan kale, the “super food,� is ready, but will taste even sweeter after a frost or two.

sick of the poor quality soft neck garlic the Chinese dump on world markets, driving local growers of a wide variety of quality garlic out of business. We have tried seven varieties, two soft necks and five hard necks, from five countries, but have settled on Fish Lake #3, a hard neck porcelain garlic developed in Ontario by the legendary Fish Lake Garlic Man, Ted Mackzka, as the one that best flourishes in our soil and weather. The crop of 100 bulbs will be ready for pulling and curing in a few days. Then, in mid to late September, we’ll plant next year’s crop using the biggest and best cloves from the biggest bulbs of this year’s harvest. But there will also be a special planting this year. Among the 92 garlic varieties in the 2012 list of Boundary Garlic Farm of Midway, B.C., www.garlicfarm.ca, I was elated and excited to see one bulb to a customer offered of the legendary and allegedly sublime tasting Ail Rose de Lautrec.

He has very good reasons for being this way, but you have to read the book to find out about that. He has married and fathered a child, now an adult, but his marriage has become an unhappy affair of separate bedrooms and stilted conversation.

TOMLINSON: Upgrading Plants that once grew well in an area might need moved as surrounding plants have grown and they are now in shade. If there were times when the garden or a bed looked drab; plan to add flowering plants or attractive foliage. Research to see what plants would best fill the area. Planning reduces mistakes and lessens the need to dig and move plants. Take time to purchase spring bulbs. Bulbs that are planted in the early fall will be what one sees when the snow melts in the spring. Sicilia, Tulips, Crocus, Daffodils and Grape Hynthins thrive in our climate. Bulbs that are planted early have time to put down roots before the ground freezes. Strong root systems produce larger healthier plants and flowers.

I quickly reserved my one bulb, and then ordered it and half a dozen bulbs to try of another hard neck, French Rocambole, which, along with Rose de Lautrec, the people at Boundary touted as one of the best flavoured garlic they have tried recently. I first learned of Ail Rose de Lautrec from Liz Primeau’s highly amusing account of her attendance at the Lautrec, France, Garlic Festival which takes place the first Friday of every August, in her recent book “In Pursuit of Garlic, An Intimate Look at the Divinely Odorous Bulb.� Besides being a thoroughly entertaining read, Primeau’s book is also highly informative about garlic varieties, sources for “seed� garlic and growing them in Canada, although the amazing Boundary website cited above is more detailed on growing garlic. The book’s chapter, “In the Kitchen with Garlic,� is excellent, and features many unusual recipes, including the iconic Potage de l’Ail Rouge, which is always featured at the Lautrec Fete de l’Ail Rose. With any luck at all, by this time next year our one bulb l Rose de Lautrec will have multiplied sufficiently that we’ll 10 cloves to spare for a pot of the soup.

Restaurants serve food. People — both children and adults — spill and drop food all the time. While one should not deliberately toss food around, and it behooves parents to keep the mess to a minimum and pick up what they can, it isn’t necessary to leave the floor spotless. Cleaning up is part of the overhead costs, and the management does not expect patrons to do all the work. Dear Annie: I believe you were wrong in your advice to “Frustrated and Alone in Indianapolis,” whose mother is difficult. You suggested he try to find better ways to deal with her. I, too, have had to deal with a mother like his. I finally had to make the same decision and cut all ties. It was not easy, but I am healthier for it. I don’t miss my mother, only the idea of a mother. Some people are so toxic that you simply cannot have them in your life. — B.T. Dear B.T.: “Frustrated’s” mother sounded like someone who has learned to push her son’s buttons. We felt it might be worth figuring out how to respond differently to her and see whether that helps before cutting her off. We still do.

A structured program provides support and helps you know you are on the right track. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The request is simple enough, but you sense there are underlying strings.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Though mystics have stayed up late into the night in hopes of courting inspiration, work you do after a full nights rest is of a different quality than that done when in a state of deprivation. You have the drive. Now find the balance. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Concentration may not be your strength today. You may find it hard to focus. However, your mental ineptitude is indicating a deeper drive. Emotions are coming forward. Time in purposeful isolation will bring clarity and

return your drive. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): There is love available to you everywhere you look. The problem is, you aren’t looking far enough. Your vision is focused on a task and there is little room for sentiment. It would bring a sense of purpose to your actions. Let love in. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Comedians find the greatest laughs come from pain and tragedy. A knack for seeing the humor in life’s difficulties is a great gift to all who witness the struggle. You’re moving beyond a rough patch. As you see the funny side, you’ll truly tap into the wisdom. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): It’s common to find areas of improvement, whether with our body or with our lives. It takes a very strong spirit to truly be alright exactly with whom you are. You have a moment of deep selfacceptance now. Nurture it as the gift it is.

Extra emphasis on rookies BY GREG MEACHEM ADVOCATE SPORTS EDITOR

JOHAN SANTANA

SANTANA SHUT DOWN NEW YORK — New York Mets ace Johan Santana is headed to the disabled list and not expected to pitch again this season. General manager Sandy Alderson said Wednesday that the left-hander was going on the 15-day DL with inflammation in his lower back. Doctors are not recommending surgery. Santana has had an up-and-down season in his return from shoulder surgery that kept him out more than a year. He threw the team’s first no-hitter June 1 but is 3-7 with an 8.27 ERA since throwing a careerhigh 134 pitches in that game. He is 6-9 with a 4.85 ERA in 21 starts overall.

The Red Deer Rebels coaching staff will place extra emphasis on the rookies during this year’s training camp, with most of the first two days reserved for the club’s youngest prospects. “We just felt we’d done it the same way for quite a few years and we wanted to change it up a bit and give a little more focus to the young guys,” Rebels GM/head coach Jesse Wallin said Wednesday. “When the camp is run with the rookies and veterans at the same time, it makes for long, busy days. This way we can focus a little more on the rookies and be able to spend more time with them.” The rookies will register Saturday afternoon at the Centrium and will be on the ice from 7:30 to 9 p.m. The rookie camp continues Sunday with 90-minute sessions starting at 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. and a goaltenders session set for 1-2 p.m. The contingent of 15- and 16-year-olds will return to the ice at the same times Monday — with the goaltenders on from 1-2 p.m. — and main camp will open at 5 p.m. and will continue with 90-minute sessions at 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. Tuesday. The teams picked for Wednesday’s 7 p.m. Black and White intrasquad game will engage in 45-minute pre-game skates at 10:30 and 11:30 a.m. Meanwhile, 18-year-old forwards Marc Mackenzie and Mason Burr have informed Wallin that they will not be returning to the Rebels. Mackenzie, who joined the club from Okanagan College in Kelowna midway through last season, is returning to school, while Burr is also planning on hitting the books this fall.

REBELS TRAINING CAMP

“Mackenzie had the shoulder injury last season and it’s come out on him a couple of times since. He’s concerned about it and he doesn’t have the passion to continue playing, so he’s enrolling in college,” said Wallin. As for Burr . . . “He said his heart just wasn’t in it. He doesn’t see how he has a future in the game and he’s quitting altogether,” said Wallin. “He plans on going to school. It sounds like he’s not even going to put on skates this winter.” In addition, Wallin doesn’t expect to see American players Nick Seeler, Taylor Cammarata and Blake Weyrick in main camp. Seeler, a defenceman and Minnesota Wild draft pick, will attend the University of Omaha-Nebraska in the fall and Cammara-

ta, a centre, is committed to the University of Minnesota, apparently starting in 201314. Both Seeler and Cammarata are listed players, while Weyrick, a goaltender taken late in the 2011 WHL bantam draft, also appears to be college-bound after spending last season with the midget AAA team at Shattuck St. Mary’s. Cammarata scored 27 goals and collected 69 points in 60 games with Waterloo of the USHL last winter. “He plans to play there for another year and then make a decision on his future depending on what happens with him in the (2013) NHL draft,” said Wallin. “He’s a guy we just wanted to take a chance on, a very gifted kid who had a great season as a 16-year-old in the USHL. “All of these guys will stay on our college list and if things change in the future we will continue to recruit them.” The Rebels will open their six-game exhibition season Sept. 1 at St. Albert, taking on the Prince George Cougars in the Edmonton Oil Kings preseason tournament. Red Deer will face the Oil Kings the following day. From there, the Rebels will meet the Calgary Hitmen Sept. 7 at Calgary Winsport and will tangle with the Lethbridge Hurricanes 24 hours later at Innisfail. The following weekend, Red Deer will meet the Oil Kings Sept. 14 at Lacombe and will face the Medicine Hat Tigers the next day at Stettler. Red Deer’s regular-season opener is Sept. 21 versus the visiting Hitmen. gmeachem@reddeeradvocate.com

Detroit Tigers’ Austin Jackson, left, scores on a single by Prince Fielder as Toronto Blue Jays catcher Jeff Mathis loses the ball in the sixth inning on Wednesday, in Detroit. The Blue Jays lost the game 3-2. out slugger Jose Bautista, who has been out since mid-July with a left wrist injury. He’s expected to rejoin the team Friday. Sanchez and Omar Infante both came to Detroit from Miami in the same trade last month, and each played an important role Wednesday. Infante’s triple in the fourth was Detroit’s first hit of the game, and he came home on a wild pitch to make it 1-0. Sanchez settled in nicely in what may have been his best outing with the Tigers. The right-hander allowed 12 runs in his previous two starts but stayed mostly out of trouble against Toronto. “His stuff was really electric, probably as crisp as it’s been

since we got him,” Avila said. “He looked great, using all his pitches. He had real good life on his fastball.” Jeff Baker’s RBI single in the fifth made it 2-0, but the Blue Jays came back with an unearned run in the sixth. Rajai Davis walked, stole second and went to third on Sanchez’s error on a pickoff throw. He eventually scored on Edwin Encarnacion’s single. But the Tigers didn’t have a monopoly on poor defence. Toronto shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria’s error allowed Austin Jackson to reach in the bottom of the inning. He was sacrificed to second and came in to score on Prince Fielder’s single. Davis’ throw home from left field

nearly had Jackson, but the ball scooted away from catcher Jeff Mathis as Jackson slid home. “I thought Aaron threw the ball really well,” Farrell said. “We had an error in one inning and missed a bang-bang play at the plate, and that puts you on the short end of a 3-2 scoreline.” Hechavarria’s sacrifice fly in the seventh made it 3-2, and Sanchez left the game after that. Brayan Villarreal got Davis to ground out to end that threat. In the eighth, Detroit’s Joaquin Benoit allowed a walk and a single, and an error put runners on second and third with two out. Yorvit Torrealba hit a flyball to centre for the third out.

Tigers 3 Blue Jays 2 DETROIT — This is what the Toronto Blue Jays have apparently been reduced to: 45-yearold Omar Vizquel trying to steal second in the ninth inning of a one-run game. Vizquel was caught by Alex Avila’s strong throw for the final out Wednesday night, and the Blue Jays lost 3-2 to the Detroit Tigers. Toronto has scored three or fewer runs in six straight games. In fairness, Vizquel had been successful on his other three steal attempts this year — and Detroit closer Jose Valverde doesn’t hold runners well. But right now, it seems as though nothing is going right offensively for the Blue Jays. “We’re struggling to score runs, so we’re trying to manufacture something with two outs,” manager John Farrell said. “Valverde has a slow release, so we were going to go after him even with mediumspeed runners. We’re trying to force Avila into making a perfect throw, and he did. You just tip your cap on that one.” Detroit’s Anibal Sanchez (23) allowed one earned run and five hits in 6 2-3 innings. He struck out six and walked two, leaving with the tying run on third base. The bullpen closed it out with Valverde pitching the ninth for his 25th save in 29 chances and 100th save as a Tiger. Aaron Laffey (3-5) allowed two earned runs and five hits in six-plus innings. He walked three and struck out two. “I’ve been working really hard on keeping my arm high and getting on top of my sinker, and it absolutely paid off today,” Laffey said. “I felt really good out there.” The Blue Jays are still with-

EDMONTON — Taylor Hall is in for the long haul in Edmonton. The Oilers signed the young forward to a US$42-million, seven-year contract extension Wednesday and the Calgary native said he had no hesitation about the length of the deal. “When they said seven years I didn’t blink,” the 20-year-old Hall said. “I’m comfortable being here for that long. I think by that time ... I hope we’re a perennial threat. That’s my main goal and my mindset when I signed the deal.” Hall was the Oilers’ first overall pick in 2010 and has since become a key fixture on the team’s youthful top line alongside fellow first overall

pick Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Jordan Eberle. “You have to have complete belief in the player and our organization obviously does,” said Oilers general manager Steve Tambellini. “He just brings such a complete level to our organization. He grabs the rope and pulls everybody along.” The deal makes Hall the highest paid player on the Oilers in average salary at $6 million per year. Veteran centre Shawn Horcoff, who signed a hefty six-year, $33-million deal in 2009-10, will make $6 million next season but averages a lower cap hit at $5.5 million. Eberle is also in negotiations for a contract extension and likely looking for similar money to Hall. Eberle made his rookie

debut the same year as Hall and is coming off a breakout season with a team-high 34 goals and 76 points. “We’ve had some good dialogues throughout this whole thing and I think his should be pretty soon,” Hall said of his linemate. “He’s along the same path, he wants to be here and so do I.” Tambellini wouldn’t reveal where the Oilers are in making deal with Eberle. “We’ve had some discussions but I don’t have anything to report at this time,” he said. The Oilers have been in rebuilding mode for several years now. Last season they finished 29th in the NHL with a 32-40-10 record. Hall finished second behind Eberle in scoring with 27 goals and 26 assists in 61 games.

His season was cut short due to a shoulder injury, but says he’s four and half months into a six-month recovery and feeling close to being game-ready. “It’s good, I’m really positive about it,” said Hall. “I’m not going to say I’m perfect on Day 1 but it feels really good now and I’m excited about the process of being healthy.” Hall’s numbers last season were slightly up from his rookie campaign when he had 22 goals and 20 assists in 65 games in another injury-shortened season. Hall and Nugent-Hopkins were the first and second, respectively, of Edmonton’s three straight first overall picks in the last three NHL drafts. In June, the Oilers chose Russian forward Nail Yakupov, who signed an entry-level, three-year deal last month.

There will be some stars of the NHL world around as well, with a number of Glencross’s fellow players taking part in a sponsors poker tournament the night before at Jackpot Casino. Many have ties to central Alberta as well, like Kris Russell, Cam Ward, and Brandon Sutter. “I’ve wanted to do something like this for a while,” said Glencross, while manipulating a forklift and hanging sponsor banners at the Daines Ranch in preparation for Friday’s event. “I love the western lifestyle, and I have lots of friends who do it.” Glencross’s father, Mel, is the longtime manager of the Burnt Lake Livestock Market, and Curtis is no stranger to mud on his boots. He has cattle of his own, and is often behind the chutes at rodeos, or helping his friend, chuckwagon driver Rae Croteau Jr., with his outfit. “All the proceeds go to charity, with seventy per cent of the money going to the Ronald McDonald house in Red Deer, and 30 per cent to Hockey Alberta to support underprivileged kids who can’t afford to play hockey. We want to help build the sport as much as we can.” And as a family man himself, Glencross is pumped about being able to assist the central Alberta Ronald McDonald house. “We’re fortunate to have two healthy children, but my wife volunteers at the Children’s Hospital and the McDonald House in Calgary, so she sees what it takes to keep it going.”

Along with the riding events Friday, there will be wild pony races and Nikki Flundra will do her liberty horse act. Berry will be climbing into the saddle himself for the competition. He’s coming off several successful weekends of his own on the pro trail, splitting second at Dawson Creek, and placing at Pincher Creek. “It’s probably my best year rodeoing,” Berry commented, of his ninth season as a pro. He’s already won over $27,000, and is third for Canada. That’s only $1,500 away from his total season earnings last year, with several more rodeos and the Canadian Finals to go. “This year me and Rylan Geiger have been travelling together, and it’s unbelievable the amount of money we’ve taken away from rodeos.” Geiger is the number one man in Canada, with more than $33,000. He’s also not out of sight of an NFR berth, with only his Canadian winnings. “Rylan has a really positive attitude. He wants to rodeo and to win. I can’t ask for a better travelling partner.” Berry and host Glencross are both excited about the new charity rodeo event at the Daines event. “We’ve had great support from sponsors like the Flames and PennWest Exploration,” stated Glencross. “The Calgary Stampede is donating a bucking horse to be auctioned off too.” “We hope to be able to donate over $100,000 to the Ronald McDonald house from this weekend,” added Berry. The gates open at 5 p.m. Friday at the Daines Ranch, with the rodeo action to begin around 6 p.m. Admission is $20. Dianne Finstad is a Red Deer rodeo writer.

Session cancelled after executives hold private meeting BY THE CANADIAN PRESS

NHL LABOUR TALKS

TORONTO — The NHL’s latest round of collective bargaining talks ended before they began. A scheduled bargaining session was cancelled Wednesday afternoon after top executives from the league and players’ union held a secret morning meeting to discuss the best way to move forward in the discussions. They mutually decided to reconvene with their negotiating teams on Thursday morning, when key economic issues are slated to be back on the table. “I think system-related proposals and economical proposals are the most critical issues and probably the issues where we have the widest divergence of views currently,” deputy commissioner Bill Daly told The Canadian Press in an interview. “I’m all in favour of spending as much time as possible trying to bridge those gaps.” The clock is ticking. The current collective agreement is set to expire Sept. 15 and the NHL says it will lock out the players if a new deal hasn’t been

reached. The atmosphere around the talks is a mix of uncertainty and growing frustration — with NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr acknowledging he didn’t “know what’s going to happen for sure” when the sides met again Thursday. “You get up in the morning and you try and work that day to see if you can make progress,” he added. “If you don’t find an agreement that way you do it again the next day and you keep doing it until you find a way.” On Thursday, the NHLPA will expand on its proposal as it pertains to rules governing player contracts, according to two sources. Those details weren’t previously included when the players presented their offer last week. The sides have put two very different offers on the table and are still grappling with a wide financial gap.

They attempted to start moving toward a more formal negotiation with only the four main players in the room — Daly joined NHL commissioner Gary Bettman for Wednesday morning’s two-hour sitdown with Fehr and his brother Steve Fehr, the union’s No. 2 man. “I think more than anything else it was to review where we are in the process, where we’ve come from, where we are with the various proposals and to determine how to move the process forward in the best way possible — hoping and understanding that both sides are committed to using the time left to making a deal as quickly as possible,” said Daly. Very little progress seemed to be made. However, Donald Fehr cautioned against viewing the subsequent cancellation of an afternoon bargaining session as a bad sign. “This is one of the normal things that happen,” he said. “Sometimes you schedule things and they don’t come off, sometimes you don’t schedule things and you end up with much longer or more involved meetings, sometimes you change the format. This is an ordinary part of the process.”

Assault on Mountie results in jail term BY PAUL COWLEY ADVOCATE STAFF A Sylvan Lake teen was sentenced to 45 days in jail on Wednesday after pleading guilty to assaulting three men, including an RCMP officer. Danton Rick Tuck, 19 pleaded guilty to assault, assault causing bodily harm, escaping lawful custody, and obstructing a peace officer in Red Deer provincial court. Tuck, his father Richard Ivan Tuck, 39, and his uncle Stan Gilmour, 28, of Calgary were all charged after police responded to a 3 a.m. scrap in Sylvan Lake on Sept. 11, 2011.

The three men had been drinking in a local bar when they ran into a couple of other men outside near Lakeshore Drive and 51st Street and a fight occurred. Crown prosecutor Wayne Silliker said an RCMP officer was on patrol when he saw a commotion. As he arrived, he saw Danton Tuck kick the head of a man lying on the ground. Turning on his emergency lights, the officer went to arrest the teen. When he had him up against the car, Danton’s father and uncle turned on the officer. Flailing his arms, Danton Tuck managed to free himself and he took off into the night.

The officer suffered bruises and lacerations to his face and ear and had a tooth chipped in the fracas, Silliker said. The civilian victim who was kicked in the head suffered a concussion and missed 40 days of work. He still has lingering health problems, including dizziness and anxiety attacks. Danton was charged after he turned himself into police about 90 minutes after the incident. Defence lawyer Will Willms said his client has no prior criminal record and foolishly took on a challenge to fight that night and “got absolutely carried away.” In a joint submission, the

SYLVAN LAKE TEEN GETS 45 DAYS FOR ASSAULTING THREE MEN OUTSIDE A LAKESHORE BAR LAST YEAR Crown and defence suggested a 45-day sentence, including 30 days for the assault causing bodily harm on the man who was kicked, and 15 days on each of the other charges. Tuck will get five days credit for time previous served in the remand centre. Judge Darrel Riemer also put Tuck on probation for a year, which includes a ban on drinking alcohol, and a 10-year weapons prohibition. He must surrender a sample of his DNA to a national database. Gilmour previously pleaded guilty to obstructing or resisting a police officer and was fined $1,000. pcowley@reddeeradvocate.com

Teen not guilty in violent assualt LACOMBE TEEN WHO STABBED STEPMOTHER WILL HAVE FATE IN HANDS OF MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES BOARD AFTER BEING DECLARED NOT GUILTY BY MENTAL DISORDER BY LANA MICHELIN ADVOCATE STAFF A Lacombe teen who stabbed his stepmother was declared not guilty due to a mental disorder when he appeared in Red Deer provincial court Wednesday. The “extraordinary” violent attack came out of the blue as his stepmother waited to drive him to school. The subdued 17-year-old boy continued to stare directly ahead as Red Deer provincial court Judge David Plosz concurred with the recommendations of both the Crown and defense council by putting the adolescent’s fate in the hands of a provincial mental health board. Plosz accepted the advice of lawyer Luke Kurata by seeking a 90-day assessment by the board instead of the standard 45 days. Kurata sought the longer period, saying his young client’s circumstances were exceptional. Psychiatrists concluded the teen, who was charged with aggravated assault, had a temporary “acute psychotic episode” when he stabbed his stepmother in the neck after breakfast on April 12. This is the first such episode he is known to have experienced. Kurata and Crown prosecutor Denis Huot agreed that there had been no tension between the teen and his step mom. The teen cannot be named under provisions of the youth justice act. There were also no warning signs of the attack that came after an ordinary family breakfast. His client later explained to au-

thorities that “voices” commanded him to attack his stepmother. According to an agreed statement of facts, the normally passive youth came up behind the 39-year-old as she waited in the front doorway to take him to school. He put her into a headlock and stabbed her neck with a folding knife. When the victim struggled to remove the blade, cutting her hand in the process, the teenager tore at her neck wound with his fingers to enlarge it. He dragged his stepmother back by the hair when she attempted to flee. She later escaped to get help after the youth became distracted by the family dog. Plosz agreed the circumstances were “extraordinary” because the youth was not previously known to suffer from schizophrenia or any mental disorder. Kurata believes a full physiological assessment, including brain scans, will be needed along with a psychological assessment. The lawyer characterized the attack as completely out of his client’s character, and said it’s left the depressed teen feeling “terrible” remorse. “He is absolutely committed to doing everything in his power to cooperate . . . so his life becomes wholly manageable and so nothing like this happens again.” The Crown dropped attempted murder and several other charges aainst him. Plosz recommended the youth be transported immediately to Alberta Hospital Edmonton for the assessment. lmichelin@reddeeradvocate.com

Harper christened new NWT national park PM SAYS NEW PARK A BALANCE BETWEEN ENVIRONMENT AND ECONOMY BY THE CANADIAN PRESS NORMAN WELLS, N.W.T. — A vast tract of mountainous Northwest Territories terrain was christened Wednesday as a new national park that Stephen Harper billed as striking a balance between protecting the environment and growing Canada’s economy. The original NDaDats’ihch’oh reserve proposal was to protect 7,600 square kilometres from commercial activity, but the final decision instead sets aside just over 4,300 square kilometres of lakes and rainbow-hued mountains about 90 minutes south of Norman Wells. The remaining territory has potential for mineral development, which is why it was left out of the final plan, officials said. “One of our objectives is to make sure we protect our environment and also allow for economic opportunity here,� said Harper, who unveiled plans for the park as part of his annual late-summer sojourn through Canada’s North. The mountain from which the park takes its name is of spiritual significance to the Sahtu Dene, who were part of the negotiations for the new reserve. Frank Andrew, grand chief of the Sahtu, acknowledged his band would have liked to see a bigger park. And though he’s worried about natural resources development, there could be a trade off, he said. “There are going to be different jobs and that for the people, we figure we’ll might be able to balance that,� Andrew said. “Land protection is so important for

our people.� Harper and his wife Laureen took a 90-minute float plane ride to the new park area Tuesday to see it for themselves. Once they got there, they strolled through willows to reach a tiny outcropping overlooking Moose Ponds. When everyone fell still, not a single sound could be heard over the pond, which is a popular starting point for canoe trips and hunting expeditions. “It’s a spectacular place for a new national park,� Harper said. Harper suggested to a Parks Canada employee that he’s aware locals are sometimes leery of parks because of their potential impact on economic opportunities. Northwest Territories Premier Bob McLeod said the park shows there can be a balance between the two. But what’s more important, he said, is how all levels of government worked together with aboriginal groups to unlock Canada’s potential. Those relationships, he said, need to be broader. “Our northern resources will benefit the entire country once unlocked,� McLeod said. “We need to work as a confederation on energy matters. We cannot strand the Northwest Territories for another 40 years.� The future fortunes of Norman Wells, historically an oil and gas hub, have been called into doubt by the precarious state of the Mackenzie Valley pipeline project — a 1,196-kilometre natural gas line from the Beaufort Sea to North American markets. Norman Wells, about 680 kilometres north of Yellowknife, is home to some of the infrastructure. Residents had hoped the govern-

While the federal government has given some money to industry in order to compensate for underdevelopment, Harper suggested no more was coming. “Fundamentally, the proponents themselves have to make a decision on whether these projects are commercially viable,� he said.

While the Conservatives consider themselves champions of Canada’s national parks, the agency in charge of running them was hit hard in the recent federal budget. Parks Canada has since announced the closure of services at many parks, including in the North, and locals are concerned about the implications for tourism. But the new park isn’t going to suffer, said Alan Latourelle, Parks Canada’s chief executive officer.

NDP says they will withdraw from environmental assessment BY THE CANADIAN PRESS

NORTHERN GATEWAY PIPELINE

VANCOUVER — B.C. NDP leader Adrian Dix says if he is elected premier next May, his government will withdraw from the current environmental assessment of the Northern Gateway project and set up a “made in B.C.� review instead. That independent review will allow British Columbia to “reassert its authority� over the assessment of the controversial Enbridge (TSX: ENB) pipeline, power that Dix says the provincial Liberal government has turned over to the federal cabinet. “If we do nothing, then the decision of the B.C. government will be made by 1/8Prime Minister 3/8 Stephen Harper,� he said. “I don’t think that’s acceptable to British Columbians. I think the people of B.C. want to have a voice in that process and we intend to provide that.� The panel reviewing the project jointly represents the National Energy Board and the Canadian Environmental Assessment Authority. More than 4,000 people and groups have asked to make oral submissions at the panel review. The panel has been holding hearings across Alberta and B.C., and has heard oral evidence from 16 B.C. communities since January. The panel will be hearing from more people in Victoria, Vancouver and Kelowna early next year, and the hearings are expected to wrap up next April with a report due by the end of 2013. One month after the hearings end, British Columbians will go to the polls in a provincial election. Dix’s opposition to the Northern Gateway project

was outlined in a letter submitted to the Joint Review Panel in April. He reiterated his position on Wednesday, prompting B.C. Aboriginal Relations Minister Mary Polak to question the credibility of the kind of review Dix proposes. “One would think maybe (Dix) should have announced (the review) prior to (the NDP) taking a position on the pipeline because, of course, for a review to be seen as fair and to be seen as unbiased, you need...not to have already taken a position saying you will absolutely oppose the project,� she said in an interview. “Even if you could put in place processes that protect the environmental review from the political opinion...the perception of bias in the international community around investment would be present simply because he’s already come out and said there is absolutely no way he’s going to support this.� The NDP could not say how much a separate review process would cost. Dix acknowledged there would be cost to taxpayers, but he said there is a lot more at stake financially and environmentally for the province. Dix acknowledged the federal government ultimately has primary jurisdiction over the fate of the 1,170-kilometre pipeline that would transport oil sands diluted bitumen from Alberta to Kitimat for shipping by tanker to Asian markets. “We have to have an environmental review and

TORONTO — Canadian Auto Workers delegates have voted unanimously to merge with the Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union of Canada, combining two of Canada’s largest private-sector unions. All of the voting delegates voted for the merger at the CAW’s constitutional and collective bargaining convention in Toronto. CEP delegates will vote on the proposal when they meet in October. The new union would represent more than 300,000 workers across roughly 20 economic sectors. Most of the membership would be concentrated in manufacturing, communications and transportation. CAW leader Ken Lewenza and other key players have said the two groups must join forces in order to ensure protection for existing members and inject some life back into the national labour movement. It will be hard for the CAW to part with its name, Lewenza said Wednesday before the results of the vote were announced. “But it’s a name,� he said, adding that a new approach to organized labour is needed in light of what he calls the government’s attack on unions in recent years. CEP president Dave Coles said the merger

with CAW makes sense because the two unions share a similar history

have our own certification process in British Columbia,� he said. “What the federal government does at that point, given that they’ve accepted we have some of the jurisdiction, remains to be seen, but we’re going to assert our jurisdiction.� In June 2010, the provincial and federal governments signed an agreement that allows either party to withdraw from any National Energy Board environmental assessment of a project upon giving 30 days’ notice. Dix, who was joined by NDP environmental critic Rob Fleming and constitutional lawyer Murray Rankin on Wednesday, said he would serve Ottawa the notice within a week in office. But when asked whether the outcome of a provincial environmental review can have the authority to block the project, both Dix and Rankin said it is a matter that a legal team is going to examine. “The primary jurisdiction for an inter-provincial pipeline is federal,� Rankin said. “That does not mean, however, there isn’t a number of provincial powers that can come to play in a circumstance like this. A team of constitutional lawyers right now is trying to analyze just what that would mean.� A spokesman for federal Environment Minister Peter Kent said Kent will not comment on hypotheticals. Environmental advocates say they support Dix’s decision, particularly when the federal government recently implemented budget cuts to the Department of Fisheries and Oceans. “The federal budget bill earlier this year gutted the whole federal environmental process, basically paving the road for pipelines and tankers,� said Karen Wristen of Living Oceans Society.

Kroeger, Lavigne gush over love NICKELBACK FRONTMAN, FELLOW ROCKER ENGAGED BY THE CANADIAN PRESS TORONTO — Nickelback may be known for their over-the-top pyrotechnics, but frontman Chad Kroeger reportedly took a low-key approach when he proposed to fellow rocker Avril Lavigne. This week’s issue of Hello! Canada magazine, due out Thursday, has an exclusive interview with the newly announced Canadian music power duo in which Kroeger says: “I feel like the luckiest person alive.” He also reveals he used a scrapbook to pop the question to Lavigne as the pair worked together on her upcoming fifth studio album in Los Angeles. “It happened in their recording studio. She was scrapbooking and he added a page to the scrapbook, and the page said: ‘Will you marry me?”’ Alison Eastwood, editor-in-chief of Hello! Canada, said Wednesday in a telephone interview. Lavigne, 27, and Kroeger, 37, shocked music fans and media outlets Tuesday when they announced their engagement after a six-month courtship that flew under the radar of most pop-culture enthusiasts. Hello! Canada was among those who didn’t previously know of their romance and was “quite surprised” when the couple approached them within the last week to share their story and engagement photographs, said Eastwood. “I think we can safely call them Canada’s new super couple. Between them they have sold, I think, something like 18 million albums, so they’re quite a powerhouse.” The cover of the Hello! Canada magazine issue shows Kroeger hugging Lavigne from behind while she displays the 14-carat pear-shaped diamond engagement ring he picked out for her. They’re both clad in black and beaming. In the five-page photo spread, they reveal they started off as friends on location in Paris and their feelings for each other quickly developed from there. “I knew I was falling for her. It was incredibly powerful and something I’ll never forget,” Kroeger, who hails from

Hanna, Alta., tells the magazine. Says Lavigne, who grew up in Napanee, Ont.: “He makes me laugh every day. He takes care of me in every way and is extremely attentive.” Eastwood said Kroeger in particular opened up “to a surprising extent, and of the two of them he sounded more romantic.” “He’s totally besotted with Avril, and who can blame him? But if you see the photographs in the magazine . . . he’s just beaming from ear to ear. We have never seen Chad Kroeger look so happy.” Lavigne also gushed to the magazine about Kroeger’s sense of humour. “She said some people might not even know that about him, that he’s incredibly funny,” said Eastwood. “As we say, they’re making beautiful music together,” she added. “We’re very happy for them, and when you read the story and see the photographs, it’s very touching, perhaps unexpectedly so.” The two haven’t announced a wedding date yet, but Lavigne told Hello! “she has the whole thing planned out and that it will be a huge celebration,” said Eastwood. Nickelback — which also includes Kroeger’s brother, Mike, on bass, guitarist Ryan Peake and drummer Daniel Adair — was named group of the decade by Billboard magazine. Their 2001 breakthrough hit How You Remind Me was the decade’s top rock song, and their bestselling album is 2005’s All the Right Reasons. But despite their monster popularity, the group has more than its fair share of detractors. Last year, after Nickelback was invited to play at a Detroit Lions football game, an online petition protesting the performance drew more than 55,000 signatures. Some of that sentiment was echoed on Twitter, where the two were trending Wednesday with the hashtag Chavril. “Let’s hope that Avril Lavigne is to Nickleback what Yoko Ono was to the Beatles chavril,” wrote a Twitter user with the handle JonCranny. “Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger from Nickelback are getting married? I didn’t know Canada allowed SAME SUCKS MARRIAGE,” wrote Adam—

This will be the first marriage for Kroeger and the second for Lavigne, who filed for divorce from fellow Canuck rocker Deryck Whibley of Sum 41 in 2009 after three years of marriage.

Lavigne’s other high-profile boyfriends have included reality TV star Brody Jenner. Lavigne got her breakthrough as a teen in 2002 with her debut album Let Go and the hit single, Complicated.

BY ALEXANDRA POSADZKI THE CANADIAN PRESS TORONTO — Don’t look to the loonie as the biggest problem facing Canadian exports, Bank of Canada governor Mark Carney said Wednesday in his first-ever public address to organized labour. The central banker’s speech to a gathering of the Canadian Auto Workers’ union was not only Carney’s maiden public address to a labour group, but also the first time any Bank of Canada governor has made such an overture. Carney addressed a persistent complaint of those who put the blame for weak exports squarely on the shoulders of the strong Canadian dollar. The manufacturing sector and auto

industry have been particularly hard hit in recent years. He noted Canada’s export performance was the secondworst in the G20 over the last decade, with only nine per cent of exports going to fast-growing emerging markets such as China and India. And he sought to dispel the notion that the high loonie bears the bulk of the blame. “Some blame this on the persistent strength of the Canadian dollar,” Carney said in his speech. “While there is some truth to that, it is not the most important reason.” The loonie has been trading near parity with the U.S. dollar since late July, and was trading at 100.59 cents US at midday Wednesday. The last time the dollar was bellow 99 cents US was on July 26.

Carney told union members that over the past decade, Canada’s poor export performance is two-thirds explained by market structure and one-third by competitiveness. Of the latter, he said, about two-thirds is the currency while the rest is labour costs and productivity. “So, net, our strong currency explains only about 20 per cent of our poor export performance,” he said. The structure of the Canadian economy, “unfortunately, is too north-south, not enough east-west in a global sense,” Carney said during a media conference after his speech. “That’s going to take a while to change and there’s no sense that’s not that case.” While CAW president Ken Lewenza conceded that the dollar isn’t the only factor af-

MOUNTAIN VIEW CREDIT UNION

NDP VOWS TO QUITE NORTHERN GATEWAY ENVIRONMENT ASSESSMENT VANCOUVER — B.C. NDP leader Adrian Dix says if he is elected premier next year, his government will withdraw from the current environmental assessment of the Northern Gateway project. Instead, the NDP will set up a “made-inB.C.” environmental assessment within a week of taking office. Dix opposes the pipeline proposed by Calgarybased Enbridge (TSX:ENB), and says a provincial assessment will ensure British Columbians have their voices heard. The opposition leader acknowledges the venture would be costly, but he says there is a lot more at stake financially and environmentally for the province than the cost of the review. The federal government has jurisdiction over the pipeline that would cross provincial boundaries, but the New Democrats have a panel of legal experts looking into whether B.C. can avoid Ottawa’s power to overrule such a provincial panel. The environmental review process to examine Northern Gateway has been underway since January and has been given until the end of next year to complete its report.

PREMIER WALL MUSES ABOUT ROYALTY CHANGE REGINA — Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall is musing about adjusting the way the province collects money from companies that extract natural resources. Wall says companies should have royalty stability especially after they’ve spent billions investing in the economy. But the premier also says it’s important that taxpayers are properly compensated if in 20 years potash production has doubled. The current complex system is based on price rather than volume and Wall says it needs to change. However, the premier says it could be years before the discussion gets into any specific detail and there might just be some tweaking rather than any major adjustments. — The Canadian Press

fecting auto manufacturing, he maintained that the loonie is more significant than Carney suggested. “I’m in bargaining with most automotive manufacturers today, and what they’re saying is... the Canadian dollar hurts the competitive advantage in Canada, and they’re even threatening to leave because of the Canadian dollar,” said Lewenza, who added Carney speaks with a bigger picture view of the economy. “What I talk about is touching workers on the ground and seeing workers lose their jobs as a result of the high Canadian dollar. I touch the emotions of a high Canadian dollar. He doesn’t.”

Independent Rona owners rebuff Lowe’s takeover plan BY THE CANADIAN PRESS MONTREAL — Dozens of independent merchants who operate 164 Rona stores across Canada have written to the head of Lowe’s Companies, saying they are opposed to the U.S. retail giant’s $1.76-billion takeover bid for the Quebec-based home improvement retailer. The letter, made public Wednesday, says the independents prefer Rona’s approach of combining a network of independents with more than 200 corporate stores. “We want to reinforce your view that it may not be a good idea for you to buy Rona after you appeared to state your doubts about the deal on Monday,” the letter reads. “We respectfully say ’No, thank you’ as we feel that Lowe’s business model is incompatible with the one with which we have individually chosen to engage.” Lowe’s approached Canada’s largest home improvement company (TSX:RON) with an informal offer of $14.50 per share, but it faces opposition from both Montreal-area Rona and the Quebec provincial government, currently campaigning towards a Sept. 4 vote.

The chief executive of Lowe’s, Robert Niblock, told analysts Monday that a deal wasn’t “imminent” and Lowe’s (NYSE:LOW) was still evaluating its options. On Monday, Lowe’s posted a 10 per cent drop in secondquarter net income, missing Wall Street’s expectations, as the home improvement retailer was hurt by the timing of revenues and a charge tied to job cuts. Lowe’s also lowered its fiscal 2012 earnings and revenue outlooks. The Quebec government, which is examining ways to thwart the Lowe’s bid, has said the offer is not in the best interests of either the province or Canada. It says Rona has played a strategic role in creating tens of thousands of jobs through store employees, suppliers and manufacturers in the province and in the rest of Canada, including 50,000 in Quebec. The independent retailers echoed those concerns in their letter Wednesday. “We have chosen to belong to a structure that enables us to place our trust in hundreds of local Canadian suppliers we know by their names, that invests heavily in professional de-

velopment and that has ethics and the local community at its core,” they said. “We know what our customers want and believe that the Rona product offering reflects that as well as local values across the country.” Quebec’s pension fund manager — the Caisse de depot et placement du Quebec — increased its stake in Rona by two percentage points to 14.2 per cent after Lowe’s made its hostile takeover offer in July. Last Friday, the Caisse said Rona needed to improve its performance, but wouldn’t weigh in on the takeover bid. Rona announced the closure of a dozen warehouse stores in Canada earlier this year following disappointing results. However, it said recently that a shift to smaller neighbourhood stores is paying off. Headquartered in Mooresville, N.C., Lowe’s has a small presence in Canada with only about 31 stores. Overall, Lowe’s has 1,745 stores in North America, mostly in the United States. The first Canadian Lowe’s store was opened in 2007, several years after fellow American retailer Home Depot (NYSE:HD) had already established a significant presence in Canada.

Retail sales in Canada fell in June, widely missing expectations of a small gain as increasingly cautious shoppers pulled back on a number of fronts and overnight trips to the U.S. hit a record high as higher duty-free exemptions kicked in. Statistics Canada reported Wednesday that seasonally adjusted retail sales declined 0.4 per cent to $38.7 billion in June from the month earlier, more than offsetting a gain in May and frustrating economists who had expected a 0.1 per cent increase. The biggest declines were felt by retailers who sell general merchandise, gasoline, building materials and garden equipment. “The surprise drop in June sales was broad-based, suggesting households are becoming a little more cautious, though cross-border shopping may have played a role as well,” BMO (TSX:BMO) Capital Markets senior economist Benjamin Reitzes said in a commentary. “Indeed, overnight visitors to the U.S. travelling by car hit a two-decade high in the month,” Reitzes noted. Canadians made a record 1.9 million overnight trips to the U.S. in June, and most overnight travel was by car, with Canadians taking more than 1.2 million trips — a 10 per cent increase month over month. As of June 1, cross-border shoppers on an overnight trip are allowed to declare $200 worth of purchased goods. Before they were only allowed $50. For people on a jaunt of between two and seven days, the limit has doubled to $800 from $400. Meanwhile, Reitzes said the “constant haranguing” by policy-makers urging households to borrow more cautiously, along with slowing job growth, also likely prompted some restraint. “Given that employment contracted in July and likely won’t improve significantly over the coming months, and with the added drain of cross-border shopping, retail sales will have difficulty gathering much momentum through the second half of the year,” Reitzes predicted. The Retail Council of Canada has said increasing duty exemptions on goods bought in the U.S. would negatively impact Canadian retailers, especially those in border communities, by luring more shoppers stateside.

Give piles of cash back to shareholders: Carney BY THE CANADIAN PRESS TORONTO — Bank of Canada governor Mark Carney has some blunt advice for Canadian companies sitting on piles of cash — give it back to shareholders. While companies might be holding on to cash because of global economic instability, those funds amount to “dead money” for the economy, the country’s top central banker said Wednesday. “Their job is to put money to work,” Carney said following a speech to the Canadian Auto

Workers’ union. “If they can’t think of what to do with it they should give it back to their shareholders.” The bank governor was responding to a question about a previously released Canadian Labour Congress study that suggests Canadian businesses are sitting on some $500 billion in cash assets. And Prime Minister Stephen Harper has said, on a global scale, there is “money sitting on the sidelines” that can revive the world economy. In July, the Bank of Canada kept its benchmark interest

rate at one per cent until at least the next policy meeting in September. The bank says business investment and consumer spending, supported by superlow interest rates, remain the chief support systems for the recovery. But business investment is expected to be less robust than previously thought due to concerns about the global economy. “The point we make to Canadian business is, having the best financial system in the world is only really a value if it’s also there in the tough times — we expect it to be there if there are

tough times,” said Carney. “So the level of caution could be viewed as excessive.” The head of the Canadian Auto Workers’ union said the money “can be reinvested in technology, reinvested in the workplace, reinvested in productivity, reinvested in workers in terms of training them for the kind of work that we need in the future.” “So absolutely, you can’t sit on this pile of cash and expect the economy to move,” said Ken Lewenza. “You’ve got to spend that cash to move the economy.”

BHP delays final approval for potash project after lower profit REGINA — Australian mining giant BHP Billiton is delaying final approval for a potash megaproject in Saskatchewan, but the company says work will move ahead. BHP (NYSE:BHP) said Wednesday that it’s committed to 20 major projects with a combined budget of US$22.8 billion for the 2013 financial year, which runs until the end of next June. It said no other major project approvals are expected in the meantime. That includes the Jansen mine, about 140 kilometres east of Saskatoon. “A sanctioning event for the full Jansen project is not in the $22 billion that I have outlined,” CEO Marius Kloppers said in a conference call. “It is really beyond that, but they have precommitment capital that is going to keep them very busy and productively busy for the year that we talk about.”

in Quebec court. He referred specifically to MTU’s plans to hire more than 130 workers, including former Aveos employees, in Montreal and Vancouver. Solursh said Lufthansa’s decision to triple its bid — to about double what MTU offered — made the decision clear for him. The value of the winning bid hasn’t been disclosed but MTU valued its offer at $5.2 million, which included $4 million plus specialized tools. The Vancouver-based subsidiary of Germany’s MTU valued the tools at $1.2 million, but the chief restructuring officer testified the amount was less than the liquidation price. Solursh sparred with MTU’s lawyer, who is trying to convince a judge not to accept the recommendation to approve the unit’s sale to Lufthansa. Francois Gagnon said Lufthansa’s latest bid shouldn’t have been allowed because it was submitted after a deadline. He argued his client’s bid should have won because it was higher by the Aug. 7 deadline.

MONTREAL — The man overseeing the liquidation of Aveos Fleet Performance says he favoured MTU Aero Engines’ job-creating plan to buy the insolvent firm’s engine repair business but had to accept a higher offer from Lufthansa Technik. “Personally I liked the MTU story,” chief restructuring officer Jonathan Solursh testified Wednesday

Carney’s remarks also touched on a familiar CAW theme: namely, that companies must keep investing in their workforces if they want to succeed. Carney urged companies and their workers to upgrade their skills so they can compete in the global marketplace. “We all need to recognize that the durable, high-paying manufacturing jobs of the future will be located in companies that invest to equip and train their workers and that are fully engaged in the global economy,” he said. The demand for unskilled workers in advanced economies such as Canada is waning, he said, adding the need for skilled workers is growing. The bank governor, after his speech, said the auto sector needs to put more focus on research and development in the production chain. Last month, GM said it would invest $850 million in research and development in Oshawa, Ont. Carney noted the number of manufacturing jobs has steadily dropped over the last 30 years. He said the use of robotics on assembly lines played a part in that decline, but he added many manufacturing jobs are migrating to low-paying, emerging markets.

who operate 164 Rona stores across Canada have written to the head of Lowe’s Companies (NYSE:LOW), saying they are opposed to a takeover of Quebec-based Rona Inc. (TSX:RON). The letter, made public Wednesday, says the independents prefer Rona’s approach of combining a network of independents with more than 200 corporate stores. Rona shares were down 67 cents to $12.45. Shares in Dell Inc. slumped 5.35 per cent to US$11.68 as the computer maker earned $732 million, or 42 cents per share, an 18 per cent decline from last year as the growing popularity of smartphones and tablets undercut sales of computers. In a sign of further weakness ahead, Dell lowered its earnings target by 20 per cent for its fiscal year ending in January. Dell trimmed its full-year guidance, even though its adjusted earnings for the just-completed quarter topped analyst projections.

CARNEY: Invest in workforce

a year ago to US$15.4 billion as a slowdown in global economic growth led to weaker prices for its key commodities. BHP’s revenue for the year was up 0.7 per cent to $72.2 billion. In addition, Chinese car maker Geely Automobile Holdings Ltd. said first-half profit was flat and trading conditions in the world’s biggest auto market in the second half of 2012 “are expected to be more challenging.” Adding to signs of a global slowdown in growth, Japan posted a $6.5-billion trade deficit in July, compared with a surplus the year before, as exports fell eight per cent. Exports of autos and electronics by Asia’s secondbiggest economy have been hurt by the strengthening yen as well as weak demand from Europe. The metals and mining sector was negative even as copper kept Tuesday’s eight-cent runup intact with the September contract unchanged at US$3.45 a pound. Teck Resources (TSX:TCK.B) shed 17 cents to $29.75 while Sherritt International (TSX:S) gave back seven cents to $4.68. The energy sector was off 0.53 per cent as the October crude price on the New York Mercantile Exchange found lift from the Fed minutes and data showing a sharper-than-expected decline in U.S. inventories last week, rising 15 cents to US$96.99 a barrel. Suncor Energy (TSX:SU) pulled back 46 cents to $31.73 and Canadian Natural Resources (TSX:CNQ) declined 31 cents to $31.46. Financials were also weak as Scotiabank (TSX:BNS) eased 57 cents to $52.78. The gold sector was the leading advancer as December bullion faded 70 cents to US$1,642.20 an ounce. Barrick Gold Corp. (TSX:ABX) rose 80 cents to $37.28 while Iamgold Inc. (TSX:IMG) rose 49 cents to $12.82. In other corporate news, dozens of independent merchants

2012 for the first time in seven years. Purchases, construction and prices are gradually but consistently increasing, though they remain far below levels seen in a healthy economy. Sales of previously occupied homes rose 2.3 per cent in July from June to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 4.47 million, the National Association of Realtors said Wednesday. Over the past 12 months, sales have jumped more than 10 per cent. New-home sales have been strengthening, too. Toll Brothers, a builder of high-end homes, said Wednesday that it’s enjoying its most sustained demand in more than five years. The “evidence that the housing market is recovering ... is fairly clear across a wide range of reports,” said John Ryding, an economist at RDQ Economics, a forecasting firm. Housing “is now becoming a small positive for the economic outlook.” That’s a big change for an industry that has been a major drag on the economy since the housing bubble burst more than five years ago. Michelle Meyer, an economist at Bank of America Merrill Lynch, forecasts that home construction will add 0.2 percentage points to growth this year. That would make 2012 the first full calendar year in which housing has added to growth since 2005.

members felt further support for the economy would be needed “fairly soon” unless the economy improved significantly. The minutes didn’t say what steps might be taken. The boldest move would be to launch a new program of bond buying to try to lower long-term interest rates to encourage more borrowing and spending. The Fed makes its next interest rate announcement Sept. 13. The central bank could also announce new stimulus measures at that time. But analysts said the minutes should be read with caution since there has been a string of positive economic data since the last Fed meeting Aug. 1, including stronger than expected job creation in July, improving retail sales and consumer confidence, and rising applications for building permits. The Dow Jones was down 30.82 points to 13,172.76. The Nasdaq gained 6.41 points to 3,073.67 and the S&P 500 index edged up 0.32 of a point to 1,413.49. Traders also took in a report from the U.S. real estate industry that showed sales of previously- owned homes increased last month, but less than anticipated. The U.S. National Association of Realtors said home resale volume rose to a seasonally-adjusted annual rate of 4.47 million in July, a 2.3 per cent increase from the previous month’s rate. That was slightly less than the 4.52 million that economists expected in July “The housing market in the U.S., which is core to banking and core to the consumer in terms of the wealth side, continues to trickle ahead,” said Chris King, portfolio manager at Morgan, Meighen and Associates. “Not big leaps and big turnarounds (but) it is ticking along in the right direction.” Mining stocks were under pressure as sector giant BHP Billiton reported that its annual profit plunged 34.8 per cent from

HANSEN Feb. 18, 1932- Aug. 20, 2012 Marcia Mae Grit was born February 18, 1932 in Detroit, Michigan. She was the first daughter born to William and Maxine Grit. She married (Carl) Erik Hansen in April 1956. Together they worked and saved to buy a farm near Dickson, Alberta. Daughter Yvonne was born in 1958. Six weeks later Marcia travelled in a convoy with Erik, newborn baby Yvonne, and brother and sister-in-law John and Grethe Hansen, from Michigan to arrive in Dickson, Alberta. The trip took 4 days and they drove through several winter storms before arriving at their first farm, now under the depths of Glennifer Lake. Son Neil arrived in 1961. Mom was a big city girl but learned how to help with the farm work and kept the farm records meticulously for nearly 30 years. She was a thrifty woman and ‘made do’ with less many times over. Marcia was very curious about anything and everything. Marcia enjoyed sewing, reading, knitting, playing BINGO at Spruce View, card games and word games. When macular degeneration robbed her vision she really missed her hobbies and being able to drive over and drop in for coffee and a visit with her many friends. Mom moved to Autumn Glen Lodge in July 2011. She loved being there and made many new friends in her new home. At Autumn Glen there was finally no cooking and no cleaning for her to do. Mom was predeceased by her parents, brothers Jim, George and David, Ronald and Donald; brother in law John Hansen; sisters in law Lucy and Sherri. She is survived by her husband Erik Hansen of Innisfail, Alberta; daughter Yvonne (Tony) de Waal, of Ponoka, Alberta; son Neil Hansen (Alanna Lockwood) from Sundre, Alberta. She will be missed by her four beloved grandchildren: Naomi (Dylan) Bressey of Grand Prairie, Alberta; Travis Hansen of Spruce View, Alberta; Stacie Hansen of Prince George, British Columbia, Andrew de Waal of Ponoka, Alberta. Her extended family includes sister Jean Shoen from Jackson Michigan, brother in law Oluf Hansen of Grand Rapids, Michigan; sisters in law: Agnes (Jens) Simonson of Holt, Michigan, Pat Grit of Grand Rapids, Michigan and Grethe Hansen of Innisfail, Alberta. She has a number of nieces and nephews in Canada and the USA who remember will remember her. There are several relatives in Denmark that she kept in touch with over the years. She has a large number of friends throughout central Alberta and kept in touch with many old friends in Michigan over the years. Marcia was blessed to have had the chance to meet and spend an hour visiting her first and only great grandson, Theou Bressey. Her beloved dog Girlie held a special place in her heart. A memorial service will be held at Metcalf Funeral Chapel on Saturday, August 25, 2012 at 3:00pm. Messages of condolence may be forwarded to the family through www.metcalffuneralchapel.com.

by THE ASSOCIATED PRESS FORT WORTH, Texas — A judge has the right to order an Army psychiatrist charged in the 2009 Fort Hood shooting rampage to be forcibly shaved of his beard before his murder trial, military attorneys told an appeals court Wednesday. The attorneys, in a document filed on behalf of Col. Gregory Gross, contend that forcibly shaving Maj. Nidal Hasan would not violate the American-born Muslim’s religious freedoms and said it is similar to “and no more invasive than” a judge’s right to restrain a defendant who is disruptive during a court-martial. “Forced shaving is not a novel concept in the military,” military attorneys said in the judge’s response filed with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces. “Army regulations expressly authorize nonconsensual haircutting and faceshaving for recalcitrant incarcerated soldiers. ... If the judge has authority to bind and gag a disruptive accused (soldier), then certainly he has authority to forcibly shave (Hasan).” Last week that appeals court delayed Hasan’s court-martial, which had been set to start earlier this week with jury selection, while it considers his appeal to being forcibly shaved. Now that the judge has responded, the court can make a decision or choose to hear oral arguments in the case first. Hasan has grown a beard to express his Muslim faith. His defence attorneys have said he won’t shave since he’s had a premonition that his death is imminent, and he doesn’t want to die without a beard because he believes not having one is a sin. Hasan faces the death penalty or life in prison without parole if convicted in the November 2009 attack on the Texas Army post that killed

Judge has right to order Fort Hood shooting suspect to shave

13 people and wounded more than two dozen others. Gross has banned Hasan from courtroom hearings since he first showed up in court in June with a beard, letting him watch the proceedings on a closed-circuit television in a nearby room. But Gross said Hasan will be forcibly shaved before the trial if he doesn’t shave himself. The judge has said he wants Hasan in attendance during the court-martial to prevent a possible appeal on the issue if he is convicted. The government does not believe that Hasan’s beard is based on a sincerely held religious belief, prosecutors have said. Even so, Gross’ response also told the appeals court that his order does not violate Hasan’s religious freedoms. Army rules prohibit beards, and those who join the military have agreed to give up certain personal interests over the needs of the service, according to the document. Military courts have granted exceptions to certain rules because of religious grounds, such as allowing a Jewish soldier to wear a yarmulke, but Hasan shouldn’t be allowed to keep his beard because his religious beliefs are associated with the crime, said Jeff Addicott, director of the Center for Terrorism Law at St. Mary’s University Law School. He is not involved in the Hasan case. In urging the court to deny Hasan’s appeal and to allow the trial to proceed, Gross’ response said that his order to forcibly shave Hasan ensures “that a military trial proceeds without a distracting and disruptive sideshow featuring an officer-accused flagrantly disrespecting the Army, his superiors, and the military judge.” The trial is expected to last more than two months at Fort Hood, about 125 miles (200 kilometres) southwest of Fort Worth.

Mexican religious cult refuses to allow teachers into walled community

258253H23

Cars

MEXICO CITY — Adherents of a religious sect in western Mexico are physically blocking school teachers from entering their walled community, setting up one of the most highprofile confrontations between religious and civil authorities in Mexico since the 1930s. Local officials in the western state of Michoacan said Wednesday it may be time to call in a large-scale police operation to enforce the right to schooling in a community that has largely ruled itself according to what it considers biblical guidelines for almost 40 years. The New Jerusalem community prohibits formal schooling, television, radio, modern music, dress and fashion. “I think the next step is to go in and enforce the rule of law,” said Efrain Barrera, spokesman for the township of Turicato, where the sect’s walledoff compound is. Under Mexican law, grade school education is compulsory, and Mexico’s National Human Rights Commission and the Roman Catholic Church said Tuesday that the refusal to allow classes in New Jerusalem is a violation of children’s human rights. They called on the government to break the town’s blockade, which has been limited to fistfights but could escalate. Members of the sect recently attacked and destroyed school buildings. “It is surprising that they want to impose beliefs, not a religion, on grade-school children in their formative stage, by taking away the right every child has to attend classes in government-provided education,” the Mexican Bishops Council said in a statement. “The local authorities should intervene and resolve the conflict, which, if it isn’t taken care of, could escalate,” the council said. “This is an issue that cannot wait, this is the moment to act and defend the rule of law.” The church does not rec-

ognize the sect, which was founded in 1973 by a renegade Catholic priest who objected to the abandonment of Latin masses and other modernization moves. The group has demanded the right to appoint its own teachers, set its own curriculum and mandate robes and headscarves for female pupils, claiming that otherwise the schools would be introducing bad habits into the community. Girls at government schools in Mexico generally wear uniforms, including knee-length plaid skirts. The group shuns telephones and its leaders were not available for comment Wednesday. In July, gangs of sect followers used sledgehammers to destroy three government school buildings in the community, then doused them with gasoline and set fire to the school furniture and computer equipment. On Monday, when the new school year was scheduled to start, gangs of church supporters, including women dressed in the bright-colored robes and headscarves the sect requires women to wear, engaged in fistfights with residents who wanted their children to go to school at improvised classrooms set up after the school buildings were destroyed. About a dozen governmentpaid teachers showed up, but were also driven off. “They are damaging about 250 children,” said Barrera. “It is not fair that older people want to reproduce and impose their own ignorance on a new generation.” There have been periodic reports of deaths, threats and beatings inside the compound, where about 5,000 adherents live in brick houses inside medieval-castle-style walls. But no outside authorities have ever been allowed to conduct official functions like policing or registering births and deaths, a situation long tolerated for a community that voted overwhelmingly for the Institutional Revolutionary Party, which has governed Michoacan for

nearly all of the last eight decades. “What we are demanding is to be able to enter and investigate what has been happening, because there have been systematic crimes and violations of the law since 1973, when the community was founded,” Barrera said. The Human Rights Commission said Tuesday it had already sent inspectors to New Jerusalem and demanded the government send police to guard the schoolchildren and classrooms. The religion was founded by Nabor Cardenas, “Papa Nabor,” a defrocked parish priest who said it was based on messages from the Virgin Mary relayed by an illiterate old woman. Together with supposed clairvoyant Agapito Gomez, who channeled voices, orders and predictions from the spirit world, they ordered the building of the compound, along with towers, walls and multiple church buildings. Members believe it will be the only place on earth spared from an impending Apocalypse, which they had predicted would occur in cataclysmic volcanic eruptions around the 2000 millennium. Residents of the New Jerusalem compound cannot use many modern conveniences, while women are not allowed to wear makeup, and must dress in robes and are referred to as “nuns” or “courtesans.” Residents recite Mass in Latin and use old exorcism and baptism rituals long abandoned by the mainstream church. Religious conflicts, often between evangelical Protestants and Roman Catholics, still occur in some parts of rural Mexico, and have sometimes led to thousands of residents being expelled from their towns. But the last large-scale religious violence occurred in the 1926-29 Cristero war, when harsh anti-clerical laws sparked an armed uprising by Roman Catholic rebels against Mexico’s secular government. Tens of thousands of people died.

In a criminal complaint, the U.S. attorney for New Jersey charged Bawer Aksal with sexual abuse. Prosecutors said Askal, a Turkish national with U.S. citizenship, was sitting in the middle seat on United Airlines Flight 306 from Phoenix to Newark, New Jersey, on Monday night when he abused the woman, who was sitting in the window seat. The woman, whose name is being withheld by prosecutors because of the nature of the charges, told authorities she woke up to find the man had one of his hands inside her shirt touching her breasts and the other in her shorts molesting her, according to the complaint. Aksal, 48, was breathing heavily and repeatedly asked the woman to kiss him, it says. The woman demanded the man get off her, according to the complaint, slammed down the

armrest between them and reported the incident to flight personnel. A passenger in the aisle seat, noticing the commotion, offered to help the woman, prosecutors said, and accompanied her to the back of the plane to alert the flight crew. The aisle passenger later told authorities that he had seen the woman, who appeared to be asleep and not moving, and saw the man’s arm under a jacket the woman had draped across her legs. Aksal was detained on board and was taken into custody by federal authorities at Newark Liberty International Airport, a spokeswoman for the U.S. attorney’s office said. He admitted to law enforcement officers in Newark that he had touched the woman but insisted she had forced his hand into her shorts, prosecutors said. U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark Falk, who presided over the case Wednesday in Newark federal court, said he wanted to hold a more detailed hearing before setting bail for Aksal. Aksal, who had close-cropped grey hair and wore a T-shirt and jeans while cuffed at the wrists and ankles, did not speak during his first court appearance. He was assigned a courtappointed attorney.

Assad influence in Lebanon weakening SYRIAN CIVIL WAR SHAKES BEIRUT’S TIES WITH DAMASCUS INCLUDING GOVERNMENT PARALYSIS rael and Hezbollah, which dominates Lebanese politics. Seventeen times bigger than Lebanon and four times more populous, Syria has long had powerful allies here, including the Iran-backed militant Hezbollah group that now dominates the government. For much of the past 30 years, Lebanese have lived under Syrian military and political domination. That grip began to slip in 2005, when former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri was assassinated in Beirut. Widely accused of involvement— something it has always denied — Syria was forced to withdraw its troops. But the killings of anti-Syrian figures continued and opponents of Assad’s regime say he has maintained his influence through allies who now control the government. All this made the Aug. 9 arrest of former Information Minister Michel Samaha all the more shocking. Samaha, one of Syria’s most loyal allies in Lebanon who has long acted as an unofficial media adviser to Assad, was plucked from his bed at dawn by special police forces who burst into his summer mountain home. Within hours, various leaks began emerging that Samaha had confessed to having personally transported explosives in his car from Syria to Lebanon with the purpose of killing Lebanese personalities at the behest of Syria. Two days later, a military court indicted Samaha, along with Syrian Brig. Gen. Ali Mamlouk, of plotting to carry out terrorist attacks inside Lebanon. Mamlouk, who was appointed last month by Assad to head Syria’s National Security Bureau, was indicted in absentia on charges he furnished the explosives to Samaha. According to a senior Lebanese police official, Samaha confessed after he was confronted with audio and video footage taken by a double agent

BEIRUT — The Syrian civil war has spilled over into Lebanon, bringing with it sectarian street clashes, mob violence and general government paralysis in Beirut. But it was the dramatic arrest earlier this month of a former Lebanese government minister and prominent supporter of Syria’s embattled president that has suggested the conflict may be causing Lebanon to slip further away from Damascus’ long domination. The bloodshed in Syria has drawn Lebanon deeper into the unrest — a troubling sign for a country that has gone through its own 15-year civil war and has an explosive sectarian mix as well as deep divisions between pro- and anti-Syrian factions, many of which are armed. The chaos could give Sunni Muslim fighters in northern Lebanon more leeway to establish supply lines to the rebels inside Syria in their battle to oust President Bashar Assad. Tensions and intermittent fighting in the northern Lebanon city of Tripoli continued Wednesday following two days of clashes between pro- and antiAssad groups that killed at least six people and wounded more than 70. In New York, United Nations political chief Jeffrey Feltman told the Security Council Wednesday that as the crisis in Syria continues to deteriorate, “the situation in Lebanon has become more precarious and the need for continued international support to the government and the Lebanese Armed Forces increasingly important.� Feltman said U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has expressed concern about two-way arms smuggling across the Syrian-Lebanese border, which poses risks to both countries and violates a council resolution that ended the month-long war in 2006 between Is-

Man shot in patrol car called girlfriend LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Authorities in Arkansas say the girlfriend of a man who was fatally shot in the back of a patrol car told an investigator that he called her from the car and said he had a gun with him. Jonesboro police said Wednesday that 21-year-old Chavis Carter’s girlfriend also told the investigator that Carter said he loved her and that he was scared. An autopsy released this week ruled Carter’s death a suicide. Police said evidence and witness statements support that conclusion.

Lebanese commandos ride in an armored personnel carrier in preparation to enter the area of clashes between supporters and opponents of the Syrian regime, in the northern port city of Tripoli, Lebanon, Wednesday. The civil war in Syria is affecting its fragile, tiny neighbor Lebanon in countless ways and has already spilled over into sectarian street clashes, kidnappings and general government paralysis. using a camera-equipped pen. The official spoke on condition of anonymity in line with government regulations. The case stunned many in Lebanon, where political assassinations have occurred with impunity for decades. While Syria has been blamed for many of the killings, no one has been held accountable. Syria’s allies in Lebanon — including Hezbollah — were mostly silent following Samaha’s arrest, apparently believing that the evidence against him was solid.

“I think the policy (in Lebanon) has been shifting away from alliance with Syria,� said Ayham Kamel, a Middle East analyst at the Eurasia Group in London. “The Syrian regime has been under intense pressure, so its allies in Lebanon have recalibrated.� Syria’s opponents in Lebanon cited the Samaha case as proof that Damascus was trying to incite sectarian strife in its neighbour to deflect attention from its own problems, and they called for the Syrian ambassador to be expelled.

Police have been facing criticism after they said officers searched Carter twice but didn’t find a gun before he was fatally shot in a patrol car July 28.

Jamaica lawmaker steps down after corruption charges

Man indicted in shooting of guard at U.S. lobbying group headquarters

KINGSTON, Jamaica — A Jamaican opposition lawmaker charged with perverting the course of justice is stepping aside from a party post. Jamaica Labor Party legislator Daryl Vaz announced Wednesday that he is taking a leave of absence as the opposition’s chief spokesman on information and communications technology issues. He says he wants to minimize any impact on the party. Vaz is accused of breaching an anti-corruption law while intervening in a traffic violation involving a businessman friend. He says he had no “ill intent� when he went to a police station and spoke to commanders about dropping a case against Bruce Bick-

WASHINGTON — A jury has indicted a man accused of shooting and wounding a security guard in the arm at the Washington headquarters of a conservative U.S. lobbying group. Floyd Corkins was indicted Wednesday on a federal charge of interstate transportation of a firearm and ammunition and two Washington offences: assault with intent to kill while armed and possession of a handgun during a violent crime. Charging documents say the 28-year-old man was carrying a handgun, a box of ammunition and 15 sandwiches from the Chick-fil-A fast-food chain when he fired on the security guard at the Family Research Council’s headquarters.
