Police share no blame for Mayook murders C AM FORTEMS Kamloops Daily News

RCMP were not at fault for failing to warn a Cranbrook couple who lived in a gangster’s former home of danger to their lives, a B.C. Supreme Court justice ruled. The couple was murdered in May 2010 during a police investigation. Defence lawyers for Lonny Adams, Lorne Carry and Colin Correia argued during the threemonth murder conspiracy trial that the police investigation amounted to an abuse of process. Those arguments occurred during a oneweek break in the regu-

lar jury trial, which ended April 28. Results could not be reported until after the jury found the three guilty of the lesser charge of counselling murder as well as weapons charges against Correia and Carry. The three accused men were on one side of a war in Cranbrook by rival gangs to control the drug trade. The jury decided the three were guilty of counselling to kill Doug Mahon, a rival dealer. While police did warn Mahon, they did not tell tenants of a house in Mayook where Mahon had previously lived.

“I infer from the evidence that the police did not consider the residents of that house to be in any danger” Justice Dev Dley

Those innocent tenants — Leanne MacFarlane, 43, and Jeff Taylor, 42 — were murdered. No charges have been laid in their deaths. The Crown believes the three Cranbrook men were not involved in that crime.

School District Five pledges carbon offsets $80,000 will go into a reserve fund to pay for measures that reduce SD5’s carbon footprint



Fans of Corb Lund and the Hurtin’ Albertans came to Cranbrook from far and wide for the alt-country band’s sold-out show at the Key City Theatre on Friday, May 17. Lund (pictured above) and his band rocked the house as usual, after a set by opening performer Ridley Bent.

School District 5 has taken steps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions that its operations produce. On Tuesday, May 14, the board of trustees decided to set aside nearly $80,000 into a reserve fund to comply with the

government’s Greenhouse Gas Reduction Targets Act. This is similar to the amount paid by the board last year. Under the Act, school districts are required to offset carbon footprints – most of which are a result of greenhouse gas

emissions from old and inefficient school buildings — by purchasing carbon offsets from the Pacific Carbon Trust (PCT) at a fixed price of $25 per tonne. This rate is often much higher than fluctuating market rates.

June 2013 marks the 5th Annual Ceremonial Review of 552 Key City Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron.

After being a satellite flight of 266 Kimberley Squadron, 522 RCACS earned their Charter on March 11, 2009. This is the third time

there has been an air cadet squadron in Cranbrook, beginning with #322 Cranbrook Squadron, 1943-48; followed by #552 Kiwanis Cran-

brook Squadron, 195257. The squadron is compiling a history of air cadets in Cranbrook, as part of a provincial initiative, and it is looking for any information and photos from the past two squadrons. An article was found recently in the “Mt. Baker View Point, 1954” featuring the local squadron. Listed in the article are the following officers and cadets: • F/O G.A. McDermid

• F/O M.D. McPhee • F/O R. Allan • F/Sgt D. Laker • Sgt G. Logan • Sgt R. Viher • Sgt L. Cox If you have any knowledge about these or other members of original air cadet squadrons, or if you would like to receive more information about the Air Cadet Program and the Annual Ceremonial Review, please contact Sponsoring Committee Chair Rob Kennedy,, or phone 250-426-4147.

Clarification In “Sign bylaw debated again,” a story in Thursday’s Daily Townsman, it was indicated that the City of Cranbrook’s building inspector is not comfortable inspecting certain kinds of signs, and that’s why an engineer must be brought in. This is incorrect. Large free standing signs require engineered foundations that are designed beyond building code limitations. This is the reason that engineering must be required on 20-foot to 30-foot high free standing signs. For liability purposes, the building inspector must require engineering on such projects. The Townsman apologizes for the misinformation.

RCMP lacing up for torch run Townsman Staff

The annual Law Enforcement Torch Run will take place on Friday, June 7 with members of the Cranbrook RCMP lacing up and inviting the public join in. The run is to raise awareness and funding for Special Olympics B.C. and local Special Olympics athletes. It is a three or five kilometre fun run or walk. The run begins at 4 p.m. at Rotary Park and finishes at Kinsmen Park, where there will be a free barbecue for all participants and a friendly game of softball with Special Olympics athletes. The run is part of a province-wide initiative, so all across B.C., members of law enforcement will be putting on their runners and participating along

with the public. The Law Enforcement Torch Run has been around in B.C. starting in 1990 and has brought in around $3.4 million since that time. Worldwide, the Law Enforcement Torch Run takes in $30 million per year for the Special Olympics cause. To register for the run, you can either go online to or go down to the Cranbrook RCMP detachment at 31 – 11th Avenue South. Registration is $25 and includes a dry-fit t-shirt, food and participation in the festivities. All money raised goes to Special Olympics BC. For more information contact Cst. Lisa Schlatter of the Cranbrook RCMP at 250-489-3471.

 Motorists using Victoria Avenue are strongly encouraged to please slow down when approaching that crosswalk and closely watch for any pedestrians.

Shank’s criminal history was not ignored and police took extensive steps to attempt to verify everything he confessed to them. The defence also ar-

gued the police abused laws because they knew of several ongoing occasions when Shank breached terms of his parole — including dealing drugs.

But Dley said RCMP immediately tried to stop those breaches and kept Shank under constant watch when he acted as a paid agent. “The reality is that

the community was better protected by having the police monitor Mr. Shank, as opposed to him being supervised by only the parole provisions of his release.”

This house in Mayook was the scene of a double homicide in May 2010. Now a Supreme Court judge has ruled RCMP had no reason to believe the couple were at risk.


“The police did not turn their minds to the notion of warning the residents of the house where Mr. Mahon had once lived,” Justice Dev Dley wrote in his judgment released this week. “The investigators were aware that Mr. Mahon had long since left that home. I infer from the evidence that the police did not consider the residents of that house to be in any danger.” The jury did not know the trial was held under unprecedented security, with as many as nine sheriffs in and

Defence lawyers also argued police should have used a polygraph when they interviewed Shank as part of a disclosure. “With the benefit of hindsight, that decision was questionable,” Dley wrote.

Trustees say carbon trust is a lost opportunity Continued from page 1 At Tuesday’s board meeting, the board instead directed staff to research the development of a reserve fund equivalent to the annual carbon credit offset pur-

chase they are expected to pay to the PCT. “We understand that there are a number of municipalities that will be doing this type of thing as well, and we

think it makes sense,” said board chair Frank Lento. According to Lento, these funds would be held in reserve to be used towards carbon footprint reducing measures within SD5 opera-

tions, as approved by the board, in order to be considered carbon neutral under provincial legislation. Lento is optimistic that government will view the board’s Carbon Offsets Reserve Fund as

complying with legislation given that the fund’s sole purpose is to address carbon emissions. Lento also points out that school buildings represent one of the single largest opportunities for reducing public sec-

tor greenhouse gas emissions. “If our district had been able to invest the $80,000 paid to the PCT last year in a solar wall upgrade in one of our schools, we would’ve achieved a reduction in our carbon footprint while realizing an annual $9,000 in energy savings.” Lento described the lost opportunity to save $9,000 as a direct reduction in funding available for regular operating expenses. “These operating expenses ultimately mean less dollars spent in the classroom and that’s bad for kids.” Cranbrook trustee Chris Johns agreed and pointed out that the pending Mount Baker Secondary School replacement offers government a golden opportunity to reduce carbon emissions while saving the district long term operating costs. “Mount Baker is the largest school in the district. It’s old. It’s got an inefficient HVAC system. We’re just feeding dollar bills into the heat system. And that means we’re going to have to keep feeding money to

It’s ludicrous.” This isn’t the first time the board has tried to encourage government to make changes to the way they deal with carbon offsets. The board sent a letter to previous Minister of Education, George Abbott, in November 2011 and again in February 2012 requesting government to – among other recommendations – ensure that carbon offsets paid out by school districts are set aside for the sole purpose of upgrading school district facilities to reduce carbon footprints. “So far we haven’t seen any concrete changes from government although we’ve been told that there would be changes. Our kids simply can’t wait any longer. That’s why the board has decided to create this reserve fund. We’re not ignoring legislation; we’re simply interpreting it in a way that’s more beneficial for our kids.” A copy of the correspondence between the district and Minister Abbott, and the complete motion carried by the board at its May 2013 meeting, is available to the public on the SD5 website,

Hunger Awareness

Valarie Melnick Cranbrook

Working together Every day, we see the tremendous difference caring adults can make in the lives of young people. As leaders of five of Canada’s largest youth-serving organizations, we are consistently heartened by the support we receive from millions of Canadians who share our belief that every young person deserves an equal chance to fulfill his or her potential. Today, there is a group of children and youth in our society who do not have equal access to the ingredients of healthy development. Aboriginal youth, on average, fall well short of the health and education outcomes of their non-Aboriginal age peers. The reasons for these disparities are complex. But two things are certain. Today’s Aboriginal children and youth did not create the challenges that confront their communities; and, as a society, we can come together to help them succeed. The imperative to act is both moral and economic. The Centre for the Study of Living Stan-

Hitherto, I had little knowledge about Ivan Coyote, outside of Quills Magazine’s description of her as having a “distinctive and persuasive voice, a flawless sense of pacing, and an impeccable sense of story.” What an understatement that turned out to be! At the outset, Ivan said her goal was to give “something special” to her audience and she delivered.

dards estimates that closing education and labour market gaps between Aboriginal people and the Canadian average by 2026 would add $401 billion to Canada’s cumulative gross domestic product. And the cost of letting Aboriginal young people down is not only economic. Denying hopeful, talented children and youth the chance to become the people they dream of being—and are capable of being—is a moral wrong we believe the people of Canada will not tolerate. Conversations about the challenges facing many Aboriginal communities are not easy. Some people, frustrated by seemingly intractable problems and the sometimes rancourous tone of the debate, are tempted to tune out. We call on the people of Canada, including political leaders at all levels, to refuse to disengage. We call on all segments of society—governments and institutions; First Nation, Métis, and Inuit organizations; and all citizens—to continue seeking ways forward with courage and persistence. This is not a time to harden our

hearts; it is a time to renew our commitment. There are many reasons for hope. We know that investments in young people’s health and education yield vast returns down the road, and we know that many groups—school boards, Aboriginal organizations, and others—are making wise, meaningful investments today. Our own organizations are embarking on new projects and partnerships, working alongside Aboriginal people and organizations to build a new future for and with Aboriginal children and youth. We refuse to let the wrongs of the past and the frustrations of the present prevent us from working together for a shared future of which we can all be proud. Join us.

Irish grandmother’s kitchen sitting around the table enveloped in a cloud of cigarette smoke, laughing, crying, thoughtful, introspective, gaining perspective, inspired, getting educated and enraged at injustice — yet entertained all the while. She made us feel what it’s like to grow up considerably different from the established norm. Fortunately, most of her family evinced more understanding and encouragement than the local Catholic clergy who were eventually chased out of the house. Although times have changed, Ivan senses that teens today who are different from others are experiencing the same cruelty from bullies and the same general lack of understanding that she went through. She concluded that, as long as ignorance and intimidation persist, vulnerable teenagers will despair and some

will commit suicide. To prevent that bleak outcome, she gives classes in schools around the province to counter bullying. Mostly, she has been well-received, but, in one school not far away, where a bullied teen had committed suicide and Ivan had been called in to give a class, the principal removed the bullies from Ivan’s class. So the kids who needed that lecture the most didn’t get it, including the principal! While some people, like that principal, resist enlightenment and common sense, Ivan believes that most people welcome it, and that belief must give her the impetus to continue. Throughout the evening, Ivan played our emotions like a master pianist, and we had a grand time.

Where does the buck stop? D M I C H A E L D E N TA N DT

id Prime Minister Stephen Harper have foreknowledge of a backroom deal between his now former chief of staff, Nigel Wright, and Sen. Mike Duffy, in which the latter’s $90,172 tab for improper housing expenses would be made to go away? That question now takes centre stage, as Harper finds himself, for the first time in his seven-plus years in power, in the grip of a full-blown crisis at the highest levels of his government, with as-yet unknown consequences for all the players involved, including him. Tuesday, the PM is set to meet with his caucus. The exchange, one suspects, will be neither pleasant nor brief. Sunday morning, in a tersely worded statement that came just 48 hours after the Prime Minister’s Office had insisted Wright had the prime minister’s full confidence, the chief of staff announced his departure. “In light of the controversy surrounding my handling of matters involving Senator Duffy, the Prime Minister has accepted my resignation as Chief of Staff,” Wright wrote. “My actions were intended solely to secure the repayment of funds, which I considered to be in the public interest, and I accept sole responsibility.” Then comes the kicker: “I did not advise the Prime Minister of the means by which Sen. Duffy’s expenses were repaid, either before of after the fact.” How very tactfully worded that clause is. Not advising someone “of the means” can be interpreted any number of ways. It could mean that the prime minister didn’t know whether the $90,172 was paid to Duffy by cheque, in cash, or via bank draft. It could mean the prime minister was not informed whether it was a loan, or a gift,

or a combination of both. What it avoids, rather glaringly, is this very simple question: Did the prime minister know about and approve of the payment to Duffy? If he did, then Nigel Wright is falling on his sword for an error in judgment for which he shares much of the blame, but not all. “The buck stops here,” said President Harry S. Truman. Where does the buck stop in Ottawa? Can the prime minister say, categorically, that he had no idea Duffy was being let off the hook to the tune of $90,000? Certainly there was no such disavowal in his own statement, made simultaneously with Wright’s early Sunday. “I accept that Nigel believed he was acting in the public interest,” Harper says, “but I understand the decision he has taken to resign. I want to thank Nigel for his tremendous contribution to our government over the past two and a half years.” Duffy left the Conservative caucus late Thursday. Sen. Pamela Wallin, a senator from Saskatchewan whose travel expenses are also under scrutiny, “recused” herself from the caucus Friday. Sen. Patrick Brazeau, also accused of improperly claiming housing allowance to the tune of $48,000, is already out of caucus and on forced leave from the Senate, due to criminal charges in an unrelated matter. In theory then, Wright’s exit closes the book and allows the government to say the matter is dealt with: A sorry affair, let’s move on. Except that it isn’t so easy, any more, to contain this to the two central players. According to reporting by CTV’s Bob Fife, the arrangement between Wright and Duffy was arrived at with the help of lawyers on both sides. Immediately that’s a red flag: If this was a “gift,” and a private matter between two colleagues, why the

lawyers? Were any PMO lawyers involved? Friday, Fife reported he’d seen two versions of a recently tabled Senate internal economy committee audit into Duffy’s expense claims. The original version found the senator “broke the Senate’s very clear and unambiguous” residency rules, CTV reported. But that was “whitewashed” out in the final report, according to Fife – allowing the government to claim these were mistakes, due to “unclear” rules. To suggest all of this occurred without the prime minister’s knowledge is simply not credible. Given the stakes, if Harper had no advance knowledge at all of the Duffy transaction – as opposed to, say, no knowledge of “the means” – would the PMO not be shouting that to the rooftops? So these are the questions facing the prime minister Tuesday, as he sits down with 163 Conservative MPs (there are 164 in total, including him) whose collective reputations have been tarnished to an asyet unknown degree by this affair: How much did you know? If you knew, what on Earth were you thinking? There will be rising demands for Senate abolition. There will be calls for expulsions from the Red Chamber. But none of those things can happen now. Abolition, if it is in the cards, must wait on a Supreme Court ruling not expected for another year or more. Sitting senators must be convicted of treason or some other egregious felony in order to be fired. That means none of this is going away, Wright’s resignation aside. The prime minister’s time on the firing line with his caucus Tuesday is just the start. In Stephen Harper’s Ottawa, we are in uncharted territory.

Sweden beats Switzerland 5-1, wins gold at world hockey championship STOCKHOLM, Sweden - Sweden became the first host country to win an IIHF World Championship in 27 years in large part because of the addition of Vancouver Canucks forwards Henrik and Daniel Sedin during the tournament. Henrik scored the winning goal, assisted on a third goal and scored into an empty net in Sweden’s 5-1 victory over Switzerland in Sunday’s sold-out championship game at Globe Arena. Henrik batted a puck out of the air for a power-play goal in the second period Sunday that pushed Sweden ahead 2-1. Erik Gustafsson, Simon Hjalmarsson and Loui Eriksson also scored for Sweden, which became the first country to win the title at home since the Soviet Union in Moscow in 1986. Nashville Predators defenceman Roman Josi scored for Switzerland. The Swiss, coached by Canadian Sean Simpson of Brampton, Ont., was the surprise of the tournament. Unbeaten until the final, the country hadn’t won a medal of any colour in 60 years until Sunday. Buffalo Sabres goaltender Jhonas Enroth made 26 saves for Sweden and was named top goaltender. Former NHL goalie Martin Gerber stopped 22 shots for the Swiss. Canadian Press

Brooks Bandits capture RBC Cup, beat Summerside Western Capitals in final SUMMERSIDE, P.E.I. - Anthony Petruzzelli and Dakota Mason scored in the first period and the Brooks Bandits never looked back in a 3-1 victory over the Summerside Western Capitals on Sunday to win the RBC Cup, Canada’s junior A hockey championship. Cam Maclise added an empty-net goal with 30 seconds left to play for Brooks, while Michael Fredrick made 17 saves for the win. This was the Bandits first RBC Cup tournament. Christopher Caissy replied for the host Western Capitals and Kevin Bailie stopped 33 shots. Summerside lost the national final on home ice for the second time in three tries. It fell to Thunder Bay in the 1989 championship game before beating South Surrey in 1997 for its only national crown. Canadian Press

Reports: Colangelo out as Raptors GM, offered corporate role with team

TORONTO - It appears Bryan Colangelo is out as president and general manager of the Toronto Raptors, but he could be staying with the team in another capacity. According to multiple media reports, the Raptors are negotiating with Colangelo to take on a corporate, non-basketball role with the team. The reports did not specify what Colangelo’s new duties with the team would be. Colangelo joined the Raptors in 2006 and was named the NBA’s executive of the year in 2007 when Toronto won its only Atlantic Division title. But Toronto has missed the post-season for five straight seasons and it appears the team is ready to move in a new direction. The Raptors are reportedly targeting Denver GM Masai Ujiri to take over the reins in Toronto. Ujiri recently won the NBA’s executive of the year award and served under Colangelo as Toronto’s assistant GM from 2008-10.


Kieren Britton and Garold Gipman are excited to offer the East Kootenay Basketball camp in July at Mount Baker Secondary School.

High school to host basketball camp TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

Summer is a time for camps, and with that in mind, a pair of basketball coaches are setting up some sessions for in July to help athletes hone their skills on the court. Garold Gipman and Kieren Britton are heading up the East Kootenay Basketball

Camp, which will be run out of the Mount Baker Secondary School gym in the first two weeks of July. “Our mission is to provide children with a fun and safe environment where they have a chance to learn the skills of basketball,” said Gipman. “We aim to teach children sportsmanship, leader-

ship, cooperation and team work through the sport of basketball, in order for them to use these skills on and off the court.” Gipman emphasizes that the camps will focus on individual attention in all parts of the game, starting with foundational skills. Attendees will be divided by their age categories

Blue Jays beat Rays 7-5 C ANADIAN PRESS

R.A. Dickey scattered four hits over eight innings and Edwin Encarnacion doubled home three runs in the seventh inning to lead the Toronto Blue Jays to a 7-5 win over the Tampa Bay Rays on Monday afternoon. Right-handed Rays reliever Josh Lueke has only himself to blame after walking Emilio Bonifacio, Munenori Kawaski and Jose Bautista with the game knotted at 3-3. Encarnacion then slammed a swerving ball into left field to clear the bases. Kawasaki added a run in the eighth inning, driving in Henry Blanco with a triple. Former Jay

Yunel Escobar hit a tworun home with two out in the ninth off a rusty Casey Janssen to narrow the lead to 7-5. The Rays got the tying run on base with a single and walk but Janssen finally put out the fire by striking out Ben Zobrist. Prior to Lueke (0-1) coming on in the seventh, Tampa had retired 13 of the previous 14 Jays batters thanks to starter Jake Odorizzi and hard-throwing reliever Jake McGee. Dickey (4-5) struck out five and walked four. He threw 120 pitches, 72 for strikes, was charged with just two earned runs and did not give up a hit after the fourth in-

ning. The 38-year-old knuckleballer was slated to start Sunday at Yankee Stadium but the game was rained out. The sun-splashed Victoria Day matinee, which drew a crowd of 29,885, marked the start of a nine-game homestand that also includes visits by Baltimore and Atlanta. The Jays (18-26) entered the game having lost their last two while the resurgent Rays (2321), sweeping Baltimore to open a six-game AL East road trip, had won three straight. Toronto is now 9-17 against AL East opponents.

while participating in daily skills competition and games, with a tournament between teams at the end of the week. As campers leave, they will receive a jersey and an individual workout and skill development program that they can follow on their own time. Sessions will run Monday to Friday on

July 2-5 and July 8-12. The first camp will run will be for ages 7-11, while the second camp for ages 12-17 will run afterwards. There is a registration fee of $150. Anyone wishing to sign up for the camp, or require additional information can contact Gipman at ekbasketballcamp@gmail. com

For the record An incorrect name appeared in a story on medal winners from White Tiger Taekwondo that ran in the Daily Townsman on Friday, May 17. Jayce Calder was incorrectly attributed as Jayce Palmer. Jayce Calder, an orange belt student with White Tiger Taekwondo, recently captured a bronze medal in sparring and a silver medal in poomsae (forms) at a tournament in Calgary. Apologies for the incorrect information.

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: I feel betrayed by my husband, and he doesn’t seem to see the problem. We have been married for 40 years. “Victor” always had a wandering eye and a problem being faithful. For whatever reason, I was never enough for him. He has no idea how much he has hurt me over the years. I put up with a lot, but now he has started watching pornography when he thinks I’m asleep. I know he’s masturbating, but if I ask whether he wants to have sex, he says “no,” and eventually, I fall asleep. This makes me feel as if he’s cheating on me in my own bed. I’ve tried talking to Victor about it, but he thinks I’m the one with the problem. What do you think? -- Betrayed Dear Betrayed: You must ask yourself what you want out of this marriage after 40 years. Can you make Victor stop having affairs and watching pornography? Not unless he understands that it is a betrayal and decides he doesn’t want to hurt you anymore. That would require effort on his part, and likely counseling to help him navigate a new way to relate to you. If you think he would be willing, please suggest it. You also can get counseling on your own and learn what you are willing to tolerate for the sake of remaining in the marriage if you choose to stay. In the meantime, contact COSA (, a 12-step program for those whose lives have been affected by another person’s compulsive sexual behavior. Dear Annie: I’ve been friendly with a neighbor for some time, as we are both cat owners. I recently let my cat outside briefly, and he came in limping as a result of a catfight. I immediately rushed him to my vet, who performed emergency surgery and presented me with a big bill. When telling my neighbor of the expenses, he said I was foolish to have been so concerned about a cat. Annie, I was shocked to hear this from a fellow cat owner and have ceased speaking to him. He has made overtures toward friendship, and I’ve rebuffed him. Should I forgive and forget? -- Cat Lover Ed Dear Ed: No one expects you to agree with everything your friends think, do and say. Yes, we are surprised that a fellow cat owner would seem so callous. But this is essentially a difference of opinion about how much money one would spend on an animal’s treatment. If you think this comment means your neighbor is an unkind, nasty person, you don’t need to stay friends. But if he is otherwise a good guy and you miss his friendship, please forgive him. Dear Annie: “Conflicted Adoptee in Kansas” was hurt that her biological mother didn’t want to tell her other grown children about her. Three years ago, my 70-year-old grandmother walked over to my mother, handed her a piece of paper and said, “Well, you’ve always wanted a sister.” Grandma had given up a baby girl when Grandpa was still married to his first wife. When she became pregnant again (with my mother), they finally wed. At first we were shocked. Grandma was ashamed and embarrassed. My mother was excited to get to know her new sister, but they discovered that they really don’t care much for each other. In fact, no one in the family likes her, but we feel obligated to be nice and polite. Grandma refuses to talk about it. The one thing she had written in the adoption records was that she didn’t want anyone in her family to know. I completely understand why some things are better left alone. -Omaha, Neb.

Actor Johnny Depp ‘immortalized’ in sharp-clawed Kootenay fossil find R ANDY BOSWELL Postmedia News

Edward Scissorhands actor Johnny Depp has been immortalized in the name of a newly discovered fossil species from ancient Canada — a 505-million-year-old marine creature with “scissor-like claws” found by a British researcher in British Columbia’s Kootenay National Park. The scorpion-shaped marine arthropod, extinct since the Cambrian era of Earth history, when animal life exploded with an unprec-

edented number and variety of species, has been dubbed Kooteninchela deppi in honour of the location of the find and the 49-year-old American actor Depp, described by the fossil’s discoverer — Imperial College London paleontologist David Legg — as his “favourite movie star.” In the acclaimed 1990 Tim Burton film Edward Scissorhands, Depp played an artificial, human-like being whose hands — left unfinished when his inventor dies — are scis-

sors. “When I first saw the pair of isolated claws in the fossil records of this species, I could not help but think of Edward Scissorhands,” Legg said in a summary of his new study of the species, published in the latest issue of the Journal of Paleontology. “Even the genus name, Kooteninchela, includes the reference to this film as ‘chela’ is Latin for claws or scissors. In truth, I am also a bit of a Depp fan, and so what better way to honour the man than to immortalize him as

an ancient creature that once roamed the sea?” Canada’s renowned Burgess Shale fossil bed in the Rocky Mountains near Field, B.C., near the Alberta border, offers paleontology’s clearest window in the vanished world of the so-called “Cambrian Explosion.” Legg details in his study how Kooteninchela deppi has been classified as a “sister” species to Worthenella cambria, another extinct creature known from the fossil record preserved in the Burgess Shale. Legg hypothesizes that Kooteninchela deppi, which was about four centimetres long, would have been a hunter or scavenger on the ancient seabed that was later uplifted to its present-day perch in B.C. He also positioned the species within a family tree of other

Journal of Paleontology, Postmedia News

“Kooteninchela deppi” was found in the Burgess Shale fossil bed near Field. “great-appendage” arthropods that gave rise to present-day species from spiders and scorpions to insects and crabs. “Just imagine it: the prawns covered in mayonnaise in your sandwich, the spider climb-

ing up your wall and even the fly that has been banging into your window and annoyingly flying into your face are all descendants of Kooteninchela deppi,” Legg said in the study overview. “Current estimates

indicate that there are more than one million known insects and potentially 10 million more yet to be categorized, which potentially means that Kooteninchela deppi has a huge family tree.”

Ford should directly address allegations of drug use C anadian Press

TORONTO — A public relations expert suggests Rob Ford’s decision not to host his weekly radio show Sunday may indicate the Toronto mayor has yet to fully figure out how to respond to allegations he was recorded on video appearing to

smoke crack cocaine. Queen’s University Professor Monica LaBarge says Ford should come out and directly say whether the video is authentic. Ford has slammed a Toronto Star report on the video as a smear job and called it “ridiculous’’ while his lawyer

has called the reports “false and defamatory.’’ LaBarge says Rob Ford — and not his brother — should publicly state whether he has used the drug, and that not doing so only further fuels speculation about whether the video allegations are true. Meanwhile, U.S.-

based website Gawker. com, which reported the video allegations Thursday night, is trying to raise $200,000 from the public, which it says it needs in order to buy and post the alleged footage. By Sunday afternoon it had raised more than $65,000 toward its goal.
