No arrests in armed standoff POLICE AT APARTMENT COMPLEX FOR FOUR HOURS BY MURRAY CRAWFORD ADVOCATE STAFF An RCMP emergency response team burst into a Red Deer apartment on Thursday trying to apprehend a suspect but came up empty-handed. With weapons deployed, canine units and the use of two devices that caused loud bangs and smoke, police were at the scene for about four hours. RCMP, acting on information that a male suspect with outstanding warrants was inside, cordoned off three city blocks around the Canyon Pointe Apartment complex in the 3400 block of 52nd Avenue at about noon on Thursday. Once the containment was set up by police they asked nearby residents to either leave the area or stay inside their homes. Red Deer RCMP called in ERT to assist in removing the male from the residence and surrounded an apartment at 3416 52nd Ave., at the south end of the complex. When ERT entered the suspected apartment unit at about 3:30 p.m. the man was not inside. Police have not identified the suspect. Courtney Peterson, 24, had a front-row seat throughout the tense situation in her home across the street from the apartment police had surrounded. â€œI could see the ERT walking towards the apartment with guns, a shield and helmets, the whole works, in a line to the back apartment,â€? said Peterson. â€œA couple of officers with dogs were there as well.â€?

Protesters demand government reverse Michener decision
WALKING A MILE IN HER SHOES Photo by JEFF STOKOE/ Advocate staff
(From left) Cam Cook, Mike Szyszka and Greg Shannon put on red pumps, black stockings and they stripped down to their boxers for a mile long walk Thursday with over 100 other men. The men were taking part in the second annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes, Menâ€™s March Against Domestic Violence in support of the Womenâ€™s Outreach in Red Deer. Funds raised during the afternoon event will go to fund 16 programs and services offered by the Central Alberta Outreach Society.
BY MYLES FISH ADVOCATE STAFF In light of the Alberta governmentâ€™s plan to close Michener Centre, a decision that will put her sister out of the home she has known most of her life, Lee Kvern too has a plan â€” to evict Frank Oberle and Allison Redford from their respective homes. Kvernâ€™s decision, made without consultation or discussion, comes with promises of close consultation with the families of the associate minister of Services for Persons with Disabilities and the premier as they are moved into community group homes. The move, says Kvern, is to ensure the two governors can enjoy community inclusion to the fullest and, through walking â€œa mile in public shoes,â€? thrive and enjoy a greater quality of life. Though the Okotokianâ€™s â€œplanâ€? is not likely to come to fruition, Kvern is continuing with her mission to get Oberle and Redford to reverse their governmentâ€™s decision to close the long-standing Red Deer home for the developmentally disabled. And while she is choosing to attend a rally against the move in Edmonton on Saturday rather than attending the one in Red Deer Thursday, about 100 people did congregate at the intersection of Gaetz Avenue and 32nd Street on a cold, drizzly afternoon for the third rally in six weeks protesting the centreâ€™s closure. Protesters waved union flags, wore blue Michener tshirts and held lawn signs calling for a decision reversal. Stan Horodyski was there because, as he ages, he sees the necessity to have proper care available to all those who need it.

Lacombe County wants to create environmental grant program
Portable classrooms not going ahead Four modular classrooms at West Park Elementary School will not go forward after the provincial government announced it would contribute only half of the costs, reported Red Deer Public Schools. Earlier this year, the board received approval for four modular classroom spaces to be placed at West Park Elementary and Normandeau School to address accommodation challenges. The school district later learned the Progressive Conservative government is now requiring school jurisdictions to contribute half of the cost for transportation, installation and link construction. It is estimated this will cost the district $447,032, which is beyond the capital reserve of the district. In the past these costs were covered by government. The board expressed concerns during Wednesday’s board meeting regarding the change in rules and its ability to cover the costs. These issues have
Lacombe County is looking to create an environmental grant program to help community organizations with their projects. Council reviewed on Thursday a draft environmental improvement grant policy that would include a $10,000 fund. County commissioner Terry Hager said the policy was designed to provide consistency in how the municipality responds to funding requests for groups tackling environmental projects. The need for some sort of guiding policy was apparent when similar projects came before the county for funding, but their proponents left with different results. Several years ago, the county agreed to pay for water testing for three years on Lacombe Lake, where residents have been concerned about the impacts of agricultural runoff on water quality. However, a sim-
ilar request from a group involved with Gull Lake water quality was denied. Coun. Cliff Soper supported the creation of some sort of policy. “I think this is a good start.” Soper said it is difficult for small groups, such as the Lacombe Lake Stewardship Society, to line up funding for projects. The group had sought charitable status to tap corporate donations, but the process is complicated and expensive and was beyond the group’s means. Coun. Rod McDermand warned that since only a small amount of money is available the county needs to be clear about its intentions and the kinds of projects eligible for funding. “I just think we’re creating a cat’s fight for groups that are after the money.” Blayne West, county environment co-ordinator, said the grant program could encourage community involvement in environmental issues. By providing cash outlays for new groups, the county could give them a boost until they reach the point they are able to fund their own ongoing efforts. Having community groups tackle projects such as water testing could also mean significant savings if hiring costly consultants can be avoided, she added. Council opted to delay passing the draft policy until it has had further review at an upcoming council gathering on June 10.
STORIES FROM A1
POLICE: ‘Constantly down these streets’ From her vantage point she saw numerous unmarked police trucks and cars and police service dogs. Uniformed RCMP members had blocked off the streets near the scene. She said police members went in and out of the building a few times. Officers told her to stay inside her home for her safety. “Two flash bombs went off, not one right after the other, but within about 10 minutes of each other,” said Peterson. “They are really loud even far away from them.” When a smoke device was activated by police one of the police dogs “went nuts,” for a few moments. About an hour and a half after the smoke devices went off police started to leave the scene. Peterson has lived in the area for about seven months and said the neighbourhood isn’t the safest area. “There are cops constantly down these streets,” said Peterson. “Two or three cars parked for hours at a time.” James Michel lived in the apartment building involved for three years, but moved out last August. “I didn’t feel it was safe,” said Michel. “It was not a safe building. I’d get home at 2 a.m. and there would be people sitting in the stairwell.” Members of the city’s Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit were also on scene. email@example.com
MICHENER: Established Horodyski, of Sylvan Lake, has supported a campaign to get a care centre for that community, but has seen how hard it is to get something built new. “This (Michener) is something established. It’s been here; it’s done marvellous work. This is something you don’t break down, you don’t try to dismantle,” said the 76-year-old. AUPE president Guy Smith said the fight to close the facility and move 125 residents into group homes and seniors care facilities will continue in earnest. One of the strategies of family members of Michener residents, through The Society of Parents and Friends of Michener Services, has been noncompliance, boycotting meetings with Oberle and not co-operating with “transition teams.” It is a strategy the AUPE supports, said Smith. “I really respect that. They care deeply about their loved ones who live at Michener. They know the value of Michener. If that’s what family members are doing as part of their strategy, we fully support that. It’s like being a conscientious objector to not being bullied. They refuse to be bullied, and we respect that,” he said while traffic driving by honked their support to the demonstrators. Also speaking at the rally, NDP MLA David Eggen said with Alberta being a rich province with a growing population, the government should be able to continue supporting Michener Centre and its residents. The progress of gathering signatures for a petition protesting the closure is continuing. So far 10,000 sig-

Close adviser to Ford makes sudden departure BY THE CANADIAN PRESS
CRACK COCAINE SCANDAL
TORONTO — The chief of staff to embattled Mayor Rob Ford was escorted by security from city hall premises Thursday amid swirling allegations the mayor had been caught on videotape smoking crack cocaine. Mark Towhey, one of Ford’s closest advisers whose background is in crisis management, refused to explain his sudden departure after more than a year in the position. “I am no longer the chief of staff,” Towhey said as he left the building. “I did not resign.” Ford himself remained silent again Thursday before leaving city hall late in the afternoon. His office also did little to explain why the mayor was replacing Towhey, who had been his adviser when he ran for the office. “Effective immediately, Mark Towhey is no longer working in the office of the mayor,” the office said in a brief statement. “Mr. Towhey has been a intricate part of the mayor’s office and has made many valuable contributions.” His office thanked Towhey, and said his deputy, Earl Provost, would take on the role in an acting capacity. Provost was Ford’s deputy campaign manager and became deputy chief of staff in August last year. Last week, both the American-based website Gawker.com and the Toronto Star reported they had seen — but not obtained — a video showing Ford appearing to smoke crack cocaine. They said it was made by a west-end drug dealer who was shopping it around for six figures. Neither of the reports about the video has been independently verified and the Star itself said it could not vouch for its authenticity. Gawker has been trying to raise $200,000 to buy
and post the video, reaching close to $160,000 by late Thursday. The website did not respond to a request for comment on its “Crackstarter” campaign. However, in a note posted on the site, Gawker editor John Cook said his confidence in completing a deal to buy the video has “diminished” because the dealer who apparently has it has been incommunicado in recent days. “The owner of the video is presumably frightened and skittish, and it’s not entirely unreasonable that he would go to ground,” Cook said. “At this point, we have no idea why he is out of touch or if he even knows about the ‘Crackstarter’ campaign.” Despite calls from friends and rivals to confront the allegations head on, Ford has said little about them beyond calling them “ridiculous” and suggesting the Star was out to get him. Towhey said his departure did not come as a shock. “The mayor and I spoke about it this afternoon,” Towhey said as reporters trailed him through the underground parking lot. He refused to elaborate on the conversation or say what he had urged Ford to do about the alleged cellphone video, but did say it was up to Ford to take or leave the advice. “My conversations with the mayor are between the mayor and me,” Towhey said. “My advice to the mayor is my advice to the mayor.” According to his LinkedIn profile, Towhey’s background is in crisis management. He formed Towhey Consulting Group and was at the helm for about 12 years before becoming Ford’s

County updated on bylaw to regulate ATVs and quads Lacombe County’s off-highway vehicle bylaw has worked pretty well but problems persist in lake areas. County commissioner Terry Hager gave council a one-year update on the bylaw to regulate ATVs and quads that was passed amid much debate and which came into effect on June 28. When the bylaw was passed, the county asked lakeshore communities to suggest trails for off-highway vehicle use. However, there is little agreement in communities on routes and so far no trails have been designated. “We just have no consensus on what they want out there,” said Hager. Under the bylaw, off-highway vehicle users can use roads under the control of the county, although riders must still abide by any provincial regula-
tions related to their use. For instance, provincial law says riders must be at least 14 years old. Two-digit and three-digit highways under provincial control, such as Secondary Hwy 597, remain off limits. County trails and parks also can’t be used by riders. Those breaking the rules face a $250 fine on first offence, rising to $500 and $750 on second and third offences.

He declined to name the company, but says the firm had made similar calls for other political parties. “We chose a vendor that had worked for other political parties, that had been around a lot longer than we have,” Yager said Thursday. “We felt that we were using a qualified vendor and that it really wasn’t our fault; what we learned is that it doesn’t really matter who the vendor is, ultimately it’s the sponsor that’s liable.” Wildrose co-operated fully with the commission and will follow the rules
EDMONTON — Alberta’s Opposition Wildrose Party says it has paid a $90,000 penalty imposed by federal regulators for violating automated phone call rules. The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission says Wildrose broke the rules in 2011 and before, during and after the April 2012 provincial election. Wildrose party president David Yager (YAY-ger) says the company that made the automated calls assured the party that it was following the rules.
EDMONTON — An Edmonton judge will decide Friday whether to grant bail to an alleged drunk driver who plowed through a restaurant patio, killing a two-year-old boy. Provincial court Judge Janet Dixon has heard arguments from lawyers for and against the release but details are subject to a publication ban. Richard Suter, who is 62, faces charges of impaired driving causing death, impaired driving causing bodily harm and refusing to give a breath sample. Police allege he was in his parked SUV outside Ric’s Grill when he shifted into drive instead of reverse.
Two-year-old Geo Mounsef was pinned to a wall and later died in hospital. His parents were also injured but his five-month-old brother was unharmed. A few dozen family members and supporters, some pushing children in strollers, rallied outside the courthouse earlier Thursday demanding the driver remain behind bars. Many also packed the courtroom later in the afternoon for the bail hearing, wearing yellow and blue ribbons — the child’s favourite colours. “This is ridiculous! This is not democracy!” yelled one man in court before sheriffs escorted him from the building.

Do you want the City of Red Deer divided into wards? That’s the simplified plebiscite question on the table for Red Deer city council on Monday. As residents cast votes for council and mayor during the Oct. 21 civic election, they will also be asked to check a box regarding a ward representation system. The two options are: ● Yes, I want to be able to vote for the candidates who run in the area I live in (my ward) ● No, I want to keep voting for candidates for the whole city, not just the area where I live.
Last month, council rejected an earlier question that councillors deemed was confusing and too wordy. The question was sent back to administration for a rewrite in plain language. The debate followed council’s decision on March 18 to add the question, a surprising move following council’s decision six weeks before to reject a plebiscite. A communications campaign on the meaning of the question and the differences between a ward representation and an at-large system will be launched. Up to $35,000 will be spent on the strategy, including the estimated $5,000 to place the question on the ballot.

PLEBISCITE ON OCT. 21 CIVIC ELECTION BALLOT
director of policy and strategic planning following the mayor’s election in 2010. His departure comes a day after the Toronto District Catholic School Board announced it had dropped Ford as volunteer coach of his high school football team, the Don Bosco Eagles. Ford, who allegedly referred to the players disparagingly in the video, has long cited the team as an example of his selfless dedication to others. The Catholic board made no reference to the crack cocaine allegations, saying only it had decided a new direction was needed. However, Coun. Jaye Robinson said Thursday she was told Towhey’s departure was related to Ford’s football coaching, which had prompted criticism the mayor was devoting too much time to the volunteer job. “It was a tipping point issue,” Robinson said. Ford’s biggest supporter, his brother Coun. Doug Ford, said Thursday he would not discuss “personnel issues” but said Towhey’s leaving was unrelated to the crack scandal. On Wednesday, the councillor gave a statement in which he lashed out at the media over the allegations that have dogged his brother. “Rob is telling me these stories are untrue, that these accusations are ridiculous,” Ford said. “And I believe him.” The councillor said his brother has stayed silent on advice of his family and lawyers. Robinson said Towhey had told her about his displeasure that Doug Ford had held the news conference to deny the cocaine allegations and that the mayor had not done so himself. “Mark Towhey did have a conversation with Doug Ford to encourage him not to proceed with the media conference, but Doug, as we all know, spoke to the media,” she said. Towhey is a former captain with the Canadian Forces, where he spent 14 years.

Hitting the panic button HARPER’S STRATEGISTS SEEM IN DISARRAY Even for a political loner such as Stephen Harper, life at the top is becoming dangerously lonely. Some of that isolation has been on evidence this week as Harper loyalists were hastily conscripted to step into the fray of the Senate spending crisis. The most visible has been Foreign Affairs CHANTAL Minister John HÉBERT Baird. In Harper’s absence, he has been tasked with holding the fort in the House of Commons. A heavy travel schedule would not usually make a foreign affairs minister a natural choice for the unforgiving mission of keeping a blood-thirsty opposition at bay in the House. But Baird is a strong parliamentary performer and, more importantly, the prime minister’s most trusted minister. Late Friday, former Harper aides were also drafted to spread the prime minister’s message that he was (suddenly) mad as hell over the Senate scandal. Those calls were the clearest signal to date that Conservative strategists were circling the wagons around the prime minister. They offered a solid hint that the chief of staff who should have been co-ordinating the counteroffensive was on the way out. Less than 48 hours later, Nigel Wright was gone. Harper and his extended palace guard may eventually shift into an effective crisis management mode but, for now, they mostly look like they are hitting a broken panic button. Like an orchestra wading its way through an unfamiliar partition in the absence of a conductor, the Conservatives are scrambling to strike the right note. Attaining perfect pitch could take a while. Much has been said about the extraordinary circumstances that led to Wright’s resignation but not enough about the dire consequences of the abrupt end of his working relationship with the prime minister. They stand to linger long after the dust has settled on the raging Senate spending scandal. It is not unheard of for someone in Wright’s position to fall on his sword but his departure belongs in the worstcase scenario category — with no transition in place and at a crucial time in the life of the government. It is hard to overstate the role of the chief of staff in the running of Canada’s
modern governments. In an increasingly centralized governing environment, no minister comes to the shoulder of the chief PMO operative on the scale of influence. On top of making the trains run on time and extinguishing fires such as the Senate blaze that ultimately became his funeral pyre, Wright served as Harper’s fixer on files as sensitive as the Keystone pipeline and the Canada-EU free-trade negotiation. To compound Harper’s predicament, his resignation comes on the eve of mid-mandate reset of the government’s agenda and at a point when public opinion has been souring on the Conservatives. An early summer cabinet shuffle is
expected to be the opening act of the upcoming recast. Some of the pre-shuffle speculation has centered around Finance Minister Jim Flaherty. Given his strong business connections, Wright was a confidence-inspiring beacon to corporate Canada. With him gone, the call Harper must make as to Flaherty’s ongoing role has become even more delicate. Wright’s hastily appointed successor is the last remaining PMO staffer to have crossed the desert from opposition to government at the prime minister’s side. At 36, Ray Novak has spent his professional life around Harper and, for the most part, on Parliament Hill. For all his talents he brings a less worldly
perspective to his role than his predecessors. Recruiting an outsider to his inner circle who would then have needed months to get the lay of Harperland was unpalatable to the prime minister. Novak obviously shares an enviable comfort zone with Harper. But his appointment comes at a time when what the prime minister may need most is to step out of that zone and reach out to more Canadians. The risk is that the elevation of an insider such as Novak to the top rank of executor of the prime minister’s wishes will only compound Harper’s self-enforced isolation.

Alberta has room to borrow more BUT IN THE ABSENCE OF PROPER CONTROLS, THE DEBT BEAST COULD GET OUT OF HAND BY LARRY MITCHELL SPECIAL TO THE ADVOCATE Alberta has joined other Canadian provinces by opting for questionable debt financing of infrastructure developments. Without better policies and practices, Alberta’s public debt can become an unruly beast. The data on provincial debt indicates that Alberta has plenty of room to borrow more money. In the recently released Macdonald-Laurier Institute study, Provincial Solvency and Federal Obligations, Alberta’s March 2011 net debt is in a negative position, indicating that its low level of debt is outweighed by its financial assets. But now Alberta’s opposition politicians, and indeed her taxpayers, are putting Premier Alison Redford’s decision to borrow more money under the microscope. As an outside commentator (I reside in New Zealand but work with Local Governments in Canada), the decision represents an opportunity to deal with public sector debt from “the get go.” Fortunately, Alberta’s problem is quite different from the usual circumstances where public debt, largely due to a lack of forethought, has become unsustainable. The debt is probably sustainable. But there are some principle-based guidelines that can keep the provincial financial policies manageable and sustainable.

be tied to capital expenditure limitations. So how should this important public debate proceed? Our experience here in New Zealand may be useful. The recognized principle recognizes the connection between current and future benefits of asset ownership by roughly matching the future benefits with the relevant debt funding. In practice, this is more often than not achieved by matching the future benefits of the asset with the repayment term (number of years) of the debt. This will reduce the level of debt, a desirable outcome, because long life assets (say of 30 or more years) last longer than the debt repayment, (say 15 to 20 years). Here are four public debt management principles that could guide the Alberta government: ● Some provincial debt is desirable, but debt servicing costs must be sustainable relative to taxpayer affordability; ● Debt must never be used to meet present operating expenditures because these expenditures only have current benefits; ● The decision to borrow will obviously favour projects that deliver reasonable debt servicing revenue streams; ● Debt management parameters must be set so they adhere to principles of both democracy and good management. These are the cardinal policy principles, but there are many more considerations that are required to support good public sector debt management policies. Many of these considerations directly relate to the political influences. These four principles will inevitably come under political attack, reflecting the pervasive temptation

of governments to try and increase debt maxima, to stretch debt benchmarks and, if unregulated, to raid debt repayment funds. Invariably, these ill-advised escapades are made for politically-attractive reasons ... most often (surprise-surprise) at times just prior to elections. Another important control factor is the regulator in the exercise of disciplining governments which forces governments to comply with public accountability regulations. Central to all controls, however, are active, informed and independent citizens who want good, but cost-effective, government. No doubt, it takes concerted, conscious efforts by many people to control public debt. The legitimate concerns of those who oppose any debt funding often turns on their fears of being savaged by an unruly beast — debt. In the absence of proper controls, a savaging is possible. The human factors alone, that is the selfinterest of the politicians if left to their own devices, will play ringmaster to the beast while running a circus. Alberta, with careful forethought and principled planning, can learn from New Zealand and the others. The province has this one-time opening shot at getting its debt management right.

Could have accepted chief of staff’s resignation sooner: Harper
THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA — Fraud was definitely a factor in the rash of misleading robocalls that bedevilled voters in six federal ridings in the 2011 election, but not enough of one to justify overturning the results, a Federal Court judge has decided. The ruling, released late Thursday, left both sides in the dispute — the Conservative party in one corner, the voters who fielded the calls in the other — claiming victory of a sort. Though fraud was at play as a result of the robocalls, the scale didn’t justify wiping out the results of voting, Federal Court Judge Richard Mosley concluded. “The scale of the fraud has to be kept in perspective,” Mosley wrote in the decision. “The number and location of the complaints received by Elections Canada from across Canada indicates that the voter suppression effort was geographically widespread but, apart from Guelph (Ont.), thinly scattered.” The ruling cleared the Conservative party and its candidates of any effort to mislead voters, but said the most likely source of information used to make the misleading calls was the party’s CIMS database, accessed by “a person or persons currently unknown to this court.” The Conservatives issued a statement noting the ruling found no evi-
dence of wrongdoing by the party or any of the candidates or campaign teams involved in the challenge. The six ridings in question are Vancouver Island North in British Columbia; Yukon; Saskatoon-RosetownBiggar in Saskatchewan; Elmwood-Transcona and Winnipeg South Centre in Manitoba; and Nipissing-Timiskaming in Ontario.
Montrealers keep sense of humour as boil-water advisory imposed COLUMNIST: AT LEAST THE MAYOR DOESN’T SMOKE CRACK BY THE CANADIAN PRESS MONTREAL — A huge boil-water advisory, affecting 1.3 million people in Montreal, will be maintained at least until late this evening while frustrated locals find some relief in sarcastic humour about their city. City officials say the advisory will be in effect until after 9:30 p.m., to allow for the completion of tests, and an update will be issued later. They say results won’t be known beforehand because of a mandatory 24-hour incubation period until water samples can be tested. It’s still not clear what caused the day-old advisory, but it has locals irate. A number are lamenting the quality of the governance in their scandal-plagued city. One La Presse newspaper column goes on at length, bitterly decrying the state of affairs in the city, before concluding with a joke: at least the mayor doesn’t smoke crack. The advisory, following repeated subway disruptions and reports of corruption in the city, resulted in a flurry of comments on Twitter. Many struck a humorous note: “Even the water is corrupt in Montreal,” tweeted a number of people, including Marcel Carrier. There were also jokes that drew parallels between brown envelopes, like the kind being described at the Charbonneau inquiry, and the brown water. The incident started at the Atwater filtration station, the second-largest in Canada. It was shut down around 6:30 a.m. Wednesday after levels dropped, causing sediments to enter the city supply. The boil advisory was a preventive measure, officials said. They said Montrealers were able to drink the water after it had been boiled for a minute. “We have no indication that any citizens were affected by drinking the water that circulated,” said Christian Dubois, the municipal public-safety director. “But we’re not taking any risks.” The advisory resulted in a surge in demand for bottled water. Several Montreal grocery stores said they were running out. One major grocery chain said the demand for bottled water underwent an astronomical increase — by about 25 to 50 times — since the advisory came into effect. The company told The Canadian Press that it had sent 40 trucks to Montreal, carrying a total of one million water bottles, to deal with the demand. Montreal isn’t distributing bottled water for the moment because there is no need, according to city

officials. “There isn’t a water shortage,” said city spokesperon Valerie De Gagne. “Water-filtration plants are working at full capacity.” The city is still preparing for the worst, preparing a “gameplan” in case the advisory winds up being extended, she said. The impact was being felt at coffee shops, which had to turn away customers. It also prompted a more urgent call to action among advocates for the homeless.

OTTAWA — Prime Minister Stephen Harper acknowledged for the first time Thursday that “perhaps” he could have responded more quickly to the news that his trusted chief of staff had footed the $90,000 bill for Sen. Mike Duffy’s disallowed housing expenses. Harper conceded that he could have accepted the resignation of former right-hand man Nigel Wright earlier than he ultimately did — four days after Harper and the rest of Canada learned the stunning news about the personal cheque Wright wrote the senator. Harper has insisted that he was neither informed nor consulted about the arrangement, but until now, he has never explained why the Prime Minister’s Office stood so staunchly by Wright in the days that immediately followed the stunning revelation. “He should have told me earlier; that’s why I accepted his resignation,” Harper said. “Upon reflection, should I have reached that conclusion earlier? Perhaps.” Harper made the comments at a news conference in Cali, Colombia, where he spent the day meeting with Latin American leaders. He said he knows of no formal deal between Wright and Duffy beyond the terms that have already been made public. “It’s been very clear. Mr. Wright gave Mr. Duffy money so that what he felt was the right thing should be done, and Mr. Duffy should re-
pay the money he owes taxpayers. Obviously Mr. Wright will be answering to the ethics commissioner on the propriety of those actions.” Harper was also asked whether Duffy should resign his Senate seat. That’s up to the Senate, he said. The scandal — allegations of interference by the PMO into a review of Duffy’s dubious expenses — grew Thursday as the Conservative in charge of the probe admitted he got advice from Harper’s team during the process. Sen. David Tkachuk, one of a three-member special sub-committee studying Duffy’s housing expenses, told Maclean’s magazine that he spoke to people in Harper’s office — including Wright — about the issue. Tkachuk and other Conservatives on the larger internal economy committee are facing allegations that they whitewashed a report into Duffy’s expenses. Harper brushed questions about his office’s interference aside. “Senator Tkachuk said he consulted widely on the committee’s mandate and the committee’s findings, including with members of the opposition. He also says he and his committee were directed by no one, that they took their own decision,” Harper said. He also suggested there was no need for an inquiry, as the Liberals have urged. Also Thursday, Senate Speaker Noel Kinsella said the RCMP’s sensitive and international investigations unit is examining the claims of senators Duffy, Mac Harb and Patrick Brazeau.

Rainfall, snowmelt caused fatal B.C. landslide: report BY THE CANADIAN PRESS VANCOUVER â€” A massive landslide that ripped through a small hamlet in southeastern British Columbia last year, killing four people, was caused by a deluge of rain and a late spring snowmelt that triggered the largest slide to hit the region in at least 12,000 years, a report into the disaster concludes. The report, released Thursday by the Regional District of Central Kootenay, makes a number of recommendations to ensure the disaster that struck Johnsons Landing last July doesnâ€™t repeat itself, but it also suggests the slide was unprecedented in size and nearly impossible to predict. The slide struck in the morning of July 12, 2012, sending 320,000 cubic metres of soil, trees and rock down an area known as the Gar Creek channel, hitting several homes at speeds of up to 150 kilometres per hour. Valentine Webber, his 17- and 22-year-old daughters Rachel and Diana, and German woman Petra
Frehse were buried in the debris, prompting a frantic rescue operation that was hampered by harsh weather and unstable conditions. All four died. â€œRecord June rainfall and late snowmelt saturated the soils on the slope above the community and triggered the landslide,â€? says the regional districtâ€™s report. â€œA landslide of similar size has not occurred in this area since deglaciation (last 12,000 years).â€? The debris destroyed five homes and left another damaged. Many other residents of Johnsons Landing, a community of about 35 people more than 200 kilometres southwest of Calgary, were forced to flee their homes, some of which remain under an evacuation order. The report identifies 18 properties that remain at risk of another potentially deadly slide, including five where the risk is considered â€œvery high.â€? That means the risk of dying for someone living on those properties due to a slide in any given year would be as high as one in 10.
VIA RAIL TRAIN PLOT
Nine properties are in an area considered to be at a high risk, while four more are in a zone where the risk is considered moderate. The report recommends restricting land and house development on those 18 properties unless geotechnical research indicates those areas are safe, but it also says such work would likely be too expensive to conduct for some of the properties. The document says previous assessments of the area did not raise the possibility of such a massive landslide. That included terrain mapping and site assessments in 1983, 1994, 2001 and 2002 â€” none of which identified â€œthe possible occurrence of a landslide large enough to travel onto the Johnsons Landing bench,â€? the report says. The report notes, however, that local residents observed high water levels in local creeks, increasing amounts of sediment in the creeks, and debris blockages in the days and weeks leading up to the slide.
Three charged in fraud investigation BY THE CANADIAN PRESS
CANADA REVENUE AGENCY
MONTREAL â€” Three people have been arrested and charged in an ongoing RCMP investigation into a multimillion-dollar corruption scheme at the Canada Revenue Agency. The charges are being laid against a chartered accountant and two former employees at the federal agencyâ€™s Montreal office. The RCMP announced Thursday that the accused are suspected of participating in a scam where the functionaries pocketed hundreds of thousands in bribes, in exchange for helping to lighten peopleâ€™s tax loads.
The Mounties said the men also used the money to corrupt employees working under them. Thursdayâ€™s arrests were tied to alleged crimes that, according to the police, defrauded the government of $4.5 million. â€œSeveral components of the investigation are still ongoing and additional arrests and charges are expected,â€? the RCMP said in a statement. Francesco Fiorino is the accountant charged, and he faces 34 criminal counts in the case. Gennaro Di Marzio and Nicola Iammarrone, the federal employees, face
11 and 12 charges each. A fourth suspect has been arrested for questioning. Charges could be laid against him. The ongoing, years-long investigation has seen 11 arrests so far. In a series of arrests last year, charges were laid against four people: a CRA auditor, an accountant, and two construction bosses including the scandal-tainted magnate Tony Accurso. Police pegged the size of the alleged fraud in that series of arrests at $3 million. Fiorino was also charged in last fallâ€™s roundup.
Woman accused of backing truck over family of three in tent
BY THE CANADIAN PRESS TROIS-RIVIERES, Que. â€” A woman is recovering following a bizarre accident in which she was run over three times by her own car. Trois-Rivieres, Que., police say the newspaper delivery woman was making her rounds this week and jumping in and out of her car frequently to drop copies of Le Nouvelliste on subscribersâ€™ doorsteps. But things went awry during one parking attempt. Her transmission wound up in â€œreverseâ€? instead of â€œparkâ€? as she got out. The woman got smacked by the carâ€™s open door as it backed up and ran over one of her legs as she was knocked to the ground. She attempted to pull herself up and reached into the car to shift the gears. But she fumbled and was struck a second time, resulting in her being run over again. A third attempt produced the same results. Residents of the area awakened by the womanâ€™s distress cries at 4 a.m. rushed to give her aid when she limped to a home. The car, which continued to move at increasing speed in a widening circle, was finally stopped by Trois-Rivieres police. The woman is being treated for serious injuries to her leg.
BY THE CANADIAN PRESS TORONTO â€” A man charged in an alleged plot to attack a Via Rail passenger train says he wants to be represented by a lawyer who agrees the Quâ€™ran should be used as a â€œreferenceâ€? in his case. Chiheb Esseghaier appeared in a Toronto court by video link from jail Thursday morning and said he has made an application for representation by legal aid, but is seeking a lawyer who can co-operate with his need to use the Muslim religious text in his defence. â€œI am agreed to have a lawyer, no problem,â€? said the 30-year-old Montreal man, who appeared wearing an orange prison jumpsuit. â€œBut I wish this lawyer can co-operate with me, because I need the holy book as reference for my judgment. I donâ€™t want a book written by humans,â€? he said. He told court during an earlier appearance he does not recognize the authority of the secular Criminal Code. Both Esseghaier and 35-year-old Raed Jaser of Toronto are charged with conspiracy to murder for the benefit of a terrorist group, participating in a terrorist group and conspiring to interfere with transportation facilities for the benefit of a terrorist group. Esseghaier faces an additional count of participating in a terrorist group. The RCMP has called the case the first known alleged plot in Canada directed by al-Qaida. Police have alleged the suspects were conspiring to derail a passenger train. The justice of the peace told Esseghaier he would have to discuss his need to use the Quâ€™ran with his lawyer once one has been assigned. He was scheduled to return to court June 3 to provide an update on his legal aid request. Jaser also appeared by video link and was scheduled for another court appearance on June 25 as his case goes through the disclosure process. One of his lawyers, Brydie Bethell, said outside court that she has not heard Jaser making similar remarks about the legitimacy of Canadaâ€™s criminal laws. â€œThe client has not made any comment like that to me,â€? she said. Bethell said Jaser â€œdenies all of the allegations against himâ€? and said he is stressed but â€œconsidering the circumstances heâ€™s doing OK.â€?

TUMBLER RIDGE, B.C. â€” A 20-year-old woman is facing two charges of dangerous operation of a vehicle causing bodily harm for allegedly backing a vehicle over a tent with a mother and her two children inside. RCMP say the incident happened early Monday morning along Wolverine River outside of Tumbler Ridge, in northeast B.C. Police say itâ€™s believed the suspect and her boyfriend were having an argument and when she tried to leave she allegedly backed a pickup truck over the family. The mother and her kids were quickly pulled from under the truck and taken to a local health centre by other campers. Police say the 20-year-old mother received the most serious injuries and remains in stable condition in Dawson Creek Hospital while her three-yearold son had a cut to his head and an 18-month-old boy was not hurt. Mounties say theyâ€™ve been told that the female suspect has received death threats over social media and that their investigation is continuing.
ST. JOHNâ€™S, N.L. â€” Survivors of abuse at the Mount Cashel Orphanage in St. Johnâ€™s, N.L. have reached a settlement with the Christian Brothers of Ireland worth more than $16.5 million. The settlement with the Catholic religious order includes cash plus other assets that must still be approved in court. Lawyer Geoff Budden represents 90 survivors from Newfoundland out of a total of 422 North American claimants. He says the money will be distributed according to a court-ordered formula. Budden says the settlement was reached by a committee of creditors that has worked with the Christian Brothers since its companies sought bankruptcy protection in the U.S. The Christian Brothers operated schools in the U.S. and the orphanage in St. Johnâ€™s where several former staff were convicted of sex crimes. The orphanage was shut down in 1990 but several lawsuits are ongoing, including against the Roman Catholic Episcopal Corporation of St. Johnâ€™s. Budden says news of the settlement is the biggest development in a 13-year legal battle.

Obama seeks to move U.S. beyond war years BUT KEEPS DRONES BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
the run comes from a degree of unreality that to me is really incredible. Al-Qaida is expanding all over the Middle East, from Mali to Yemen and all places in between.” Obama announced new “presidential policy guidelines” on the standards his administration uses when deciding to launch drone strikes. According to an unclassified summary of the guidelines, the U.S. will not strike if a target can be captured, either by the U.S. or a foreign government; a strike can be launched only against a target posing an “imminent” threat, and the U.S. has a preference for military control of the drone program. However, the Central Intelligence Agency will continue to work with the military on the program in
Yemen, and control it in Pakistan, given the concern that al-Qaida may return in greater numbers as U.S. troops leave Afghanistan. The military and the CIA currently work side by side in Yemen, with the CIA flying its drones over the northern region out of a covert base in Saudi Arabia and the military flying its unmanned aerial vehicles from Djibouti. Obama’s advisers said the new guidelines would effectively limit the number of drone strikes in terror zones and pointed to a future decline of attacks against extremists in Afghanistan as the war ebbs. But strikes elsewhere will continue. The guidelines will apply to strikes against both foreigners and U.S. citizens abroad.
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama sought Thursday to advance the U.S. beyond the unrelenting war effort of the past dozen years, defining a narrowing terror threat that still imperils the nation but now is defined by smaller networks and homegrown extremists rather than the grandiose plots of Osama bin Laden’s al-Qaida. He defended his controversial drone-strikes program as a linchpin of the U.S. response to the evolving dangers. In a lengthy address at the National Defence University, Obama argued that changing threats require changes to the nation’s counterterrorism policies. He implored Congress to close the much-maligned Guantanamo Bay detention centre in Cuba and pledged to allow greater oversight of the drone program. But he plans to keep the most lethal efforts with the unmanned aircraft under the control of the CIA. He offered his most vigorous public defence yet of drone strikes as legal, effective and necessary as terror threats progress. “Neither I, nor any president, can promise the total defeat of terror,” Obama told his audience of students, national security and human rights experts and counterterror officials. “What we can do — what we must do — is dismantle networks that pose a direct danger, and make it less likely for new groups to gain a foothold, all while maintaining the freedoms and ideals that we defend.” Obama’s address came amid increased pressure from Congress on both the drone program and the status of the Guantanamo prison. A rare coalition of bipartisan lawmakers has pressed for more openness and more oversight of the highly secretive targeted strikes, while liberal lawmakers have pointed to a hunger strike at Guantanamo in pressing Obama to renew his stalled efforts to close the detention centre. The president cast the drone program as crucial in a counterterror effort that will rely less on the widespread deployment of U.S. troops as the war in Afghanistan winds down. But he acknowledged the targeted strikes are no “cure-all” and said he is deeply troubled by the civilians unintentionally killed. “For me, and those in my chain of command, these deaths will haunt us as long as we live,” he said. Before any strike, he said, “there must be near-certainty that no civilians will be killed or See below for exclusions. injured — the highest standard we can set.” In Pakistan alone, up to 3,336 people have been killed by the unmanned aircraft since 2003, according to the New America Foundation which maintains a database of the strikes.

Students, teachers reunite for first BRIEFS time since tornado destroyed school Boy Scouts WORLD
approve plan to accept openly gay boys as Scouts GRAPEVINE, Texas — Local leaders of the Boy Scouts of America voted Thursday to ease a divisive ban and allow openly gay boys to be accepted into the nation’s leading youth organization — one of the most dramatic moves the organization has made in a century. Gay adults will remain barred from serving as Scout leaders. Of the local Scout leaders voting at their annual meeting in Texas, more than 60 per cent supported the proposal. Casting ballots were about 1,400 voting members of BSA’s National Council who were attending their annual meeting at a conference centre not far from BSA headquarters in suburban Dallas. The vote will not end the wrenching debate over the Scouts’ membership policy, and it could trigger defections among those on the losing side. Some conservative churches that sponsor Scout units wanted to continue excluding gay youths, and in some cases threatened to leave the BSA if the ban were lifted. More liberal Scout leaders — while supporting the proposal to accept gay youth — wanted the ban on gay adults lifted as well.
Kenya asks UN to “terminate” ICC crimes against humanity cases against president and VP Kenya is getting a chilly reception to its appeal to the U.N. Security Council to “terminate” International Criminal Court cases against the president and deputy president for crimes against humanity. The Kenyan president and his deputy are charged with planning and financing Kenya’s 2007-08 postelection violence in which more than 1,000 people died and 600,000 were evicted from their homes. Security Council diplomats say on condition of anonymity that Rwanda was the only council member to show much sympathy for Kenya. Kenya’s U.N. ambassador, Macharia Kamau, says “We have asked that these proceedings be terminated as soon as possible” by the Security Council.
China offers troops to UN peacekeeping mission in Mali China has offered to contribute troops to the new UN peacekeeping mission in Mali, where Islamist jihadists controlled the country’s north until French-led troops launched an offensive in January to oust them, a U.N. official said Thursday. Andre-Michel Essoungou, a spokesman for the UN peacekeeping department, told The Associated Press that it “has received pledges and offers of contributions from a number of countries from around the world, including China.” UN officials and diplomats, speaking on condition of anonymity because no announcement has been made, said China has offered to send a civil engineering company, comprising about 150 soldiers, and is likely to send additional peacekeepers. In late April, the Security Council authorized a UN force comprising 11,200 military personnel and 1,440 international police to replace a 6,000-member African-led mission now in Mali on July 1.

MOORE, Okla. — Students from a suburban Oklahoma City school destroyed by this week’s tornado reunited with their teachers Thursday and collected whatever could be salvaged from the ruins. Some children carried thank-you cards. A 7-year-old was eager to see her favourite gym teacher and for a chance to say goodbye for the school year. It was one of many difficult goodbyes for the city of Moore. Family and friends attended the funeral of a 9-year-old girl who died at Plaza Towers Elementary School — the first since Monday’s storm, which killed 24 people. Students who survived the storm’s on-
slaught at the school and those whose parents had pulled them out of class just before it hit gathered with their teachers at another Moore school that wasn’t damaged. Seven children died at Plaza Towers. Authorities kept journalists at a distance, but Cheryle Dixon, a grandmother of Crisily Dixon, talked to a reporter about how hard it was for the little girl. “A lot of tears, a lot of worry about her gym teacher, a lot of worry about a lot of the teachers that she knew, so she just can’t believe it,” Dixon said. Crisily’s father had picked her up an hour before the tornado struck when he
learned the severity of the approaching storm — a top-of-the-scale EF-5 that was on the ground for 40 minutes, according to the National Severe Storm Lab. The police and the mayor’s office in Oklahoma City both estimate that around 12,000 homes were damaged and destroyed by the storm in the city and to the south in Moore. Moore Schools Superintendent Susan Pierce said Thursday that Plaza Towers and Briarwood Elementary schools will be rebuilt. Briarwood was heavily damaged but no one was killed there. Gov. Mary Fallin said Thursday that as the removal of mountains of debris begins “we are also in a stage of healing.” She said a public memorial service would be held Sunday night at a church.
Obama lifts ban on detainee transfers to Yemen BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama is lifting his self-imposed ban on transferring Guantanamo Bay detainees to Yemen, where a leadership upheaval has improved the country’s security but not eliminated a terrorist organization trying to recruit jihadists. Lifting the ban is a step toward Obama’s goal of closing the Navy-run prison in Cuba since nearly 100 of the 166 terrorist suspects held there are from Yemen and have had nowhere to go even if they had been cleared for transfer. Obama wouldn’t send them home and no other country was welcoming them, and their hopelessness after a decade or more of imprisonment had contributed to a hunger strike at the detention facility that helped reignite the long-stalled effort to close it. But Obama’s decision is not without risk — detainees who have been released to
Yemen in the past have joined terrorist fighters in the Arab nation. The security concerns prompted Obama to suspend transfers to Yemen in January 2010 after a Nigerian man attempted to blow up a U.S.-bound flight on Christmas Day 2009 with explosives hidden in his underwear on instructions from al-Qaida operatives in Yemen. Sen. Saxby Chambliss, A Republican, was among those in Congress criticizing Obama’s change in policy. “Between December 2009 and today, has Yemen shown any indication that they are more capable of looking after those individuals? Absolutely not,” Chambliss said. “And If we were to transfer those individuals to Yemen, it would be just like turning them loose.” Yemeni watchers in the U.S. say there is reason to hope security has improved since longtime authoritarian leader Ali Abdullah Saleh was ousted after mass uprisings last year. Al-Qaida had been on the upswing
under Saleh, but his successor Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi has made fighting terrorism a top goal and restored co-operation with the United States in the effort. Obama announced that he was lifting the moratorium on Yemeni transfers in a speech Thursday at the National Defence University in which the president also defended targeted killings by U.S. aerial drones and pushed Congress anew to authorize Guantanamo’s closure. The president did not explain his rationale behind the change in Yemen policy, but senior administration officials told reporters in a conference call cited Hadi’s leadership. A Yemeni official told The Associated Press that a delegation, including the country’s human rights minister, returned this week after a trip to Washington, where they agreed to set up of a rehabilitation centre to help reintegrate detainees, with the support of the United States and other Arab nations.

Staying alive PATRICK ROY
AVS HIRE ROY AS COACH Hall of Fame goalie Patrick Roy is returning to the Colorado Avalanche as their head coach. The team reached an agreement in principle Thursday with Roy to lead the Avs and also gave him the title of vicepresident of hockey operations. Roy will join forces with former teammate Joe Sakic, who was recently promoted to executive vice-president of hockey operations. The Avalanche won two Stanley Cup titles with the duo on the ice and the organization is hoping they can help turn around a downtrodden team. The Avs are coming off a season in which they finished last in the Western Conference and missed the playoffs for a third straight season. The dismal season led to the dismissal of coach Joe Sacco late last month. The 47-year-old Roy becomes the sixth coach in Avalanche history and the 14th in franchise history; the team began as the Quebec Nordiques and moved to Denver before the 1995-96 season. The team won the first of two Stanley Cup titles that season, with Roy in net. Roy has spent the last eight seasons as coach and general manager of the Quebec Remparts.

New York Rangers’ Chris Kreider, center, reacts as the winning-goal goes past Boston Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask while Dougie Hamilton looks on during the overtime period in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinals, Thursday, in New York.
RANGERS STAVE OFF ELIMINATION WITH OT WIN OVER BRUINS BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Rangers 4 Bruins 3 OT NEW YORK — Chris Kreider steered in a pass from Rick Nash 7:03 into overtime, and the New York Rangers stayed alive in the Stanley Cup playoffs with a 4-3 victory over the Boston Bruins on Thursday night. New York, which erased 2-0 and 3-2 deficits in the critical Game 4 matchup in the Eastern Conference semifinals, still trails the series 3-1. The Rangers will need to win again on Saturday in Boston to force a Game 6 back in Madison Square Garden. The Rangers, who were outshot 40-32, won a faceoff deep in their zone, and Nash rushed the puck up ice. He stopped above the right circle and fed a hard pass in front that Kreider skated into and tipped past goalie Tuukka Rask for his first goal of the playoffs. Kreider, who made his NHL debut in last year’s playoffs, has six career post-season goals in just 25 games. “I was lucky enough to play with Rick,”
the 22-year-old Kreider said. “Just trying to go hard to the net. He’s such a talented player. He was able to find my tape, and I tried to put it on net.” Derek Stepan and Brian Boyle scored tying goals in the third period for the Rangers, who even found success on the power play. Carl Hagelin netted New York’s first goal of the game in the second period. Henrik Lundqvist made 37 saves for the Rangers. Boston got second-period goals from Nathan Horton and rising star Torey Krug to build an early lead. Tyler Seguin’s first of the playoffs put the Bruins back on top 3-2 in the third. Only three teams have lost a series after leading 3-0, but the Bruins are the most recent to do it in 2010 against Philadelphia. “It’s a resilient group,” Kreider said. “The tone of the dressing room was the same as positive and upbeat. We’re excited to play more hockey.” One more win will put Boston back into the conference finals for the second time in three years. Stepan got New York even at 2 just 1:15 into the third after a dump-in. Rask went behind the net to slow the puck down for defenceman Zdeno Chara, but Stepan forced a turnover when he surprised Chara from behind.

Stepan gathered the puck, came around in front and tucked the puck inside the left post for his team-leading fourth of the playoffs. But the Bruins made the most of another power play and took a 3-2 lead just 2 seconds after a goalie interference penalty against Ryan McDonagh expired. Seguin got to his own rebound in close and shoved a shot past Lundqvist at 8:06. However, the Rangers still wouldn’t go away and they finally connected on the power play for the first time in the series and just the third time in 41 man-advantages this post-season. Boyle took a pass from Stepan in the slot and snapped a drive that nestled into the middle of the net at 10:00 after the Bruins were caught with too many men on the ice. Given another power play 2 minutes later, the Rangers couldn’t make it two in a row. New York coach John Tortorella made desperate moves with his lineup, hoping to find some chemistry to spark his club. Tortorella benched star centre Brad Richards, who had just one goal in the playoffs, and rugged forward Arron Asham in favour of seldom-used Kris Newbury and Micheal Haley.

London Knights centre Chris Tierney collides with Saskatoon Blades goaltender Andrey Makarov during the second period of Memorial Cup action in Saskatoon on Thursday.
Knights 6 Blades 1 SASKATOON — Bo Horvat scored on a short-handed penalty shot in the first period and Jake Patterson made 32 saves Thursday as the London Knights defeated the host Saskatoon Blades 6-1 in the tiebreaker game at the MasterCard Memorial Cup. London will now take on the Portland Winterhawks in Friday’s semifinal, while Saskatoon’s up-and-down season came to a disappointing end. The winner of the PortlandSaskatoon game will earn a berth in Sunday’s Canadian Hockey League title game against the Halifax Mooseheads. Chris Tierney, with a goal and an assist, Seth Griffith, Ryan Rupert, Kyle Platzer and Nikita Zadorov had the other goals for the Ontario Hockey League champions, who also defeated Saskatoon 3-2 in the tournament opener.
Alex Broadhurst added two assists, while Horvat chipped in with one of his own. Patterson, who was pulled after allowing five goals in the first period of Tuesday’s 9-2 round-robin loss to Halifax, was rarely tested by a sluggish Blades team that was playing their second game in as many nights. Nathan Burns scored for Saskatoon, which got 31 saves from Andrey Makarov in front of 7,895 at the Credit Union Centre before being replaced by Alex Moodie after the sixth London goal. Moodie finished with three stops Leading 1-0 after Horvat’s penalty shot goal in the first, the Knights pulled away with two quick strikes during a 49-second span in the second. Griffith walked around Saskatoon’s Collin Valcourt on a power play and roofed a shot past Makarov at 11:28 before Max Domi fed Tierney for a one-timer at 12:17

Canadians in contention at PGA Colonial BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS FORT WORTH, Texas — Ryan Palmer was standing in the fairway on his last hole Thursday when his longtime caddie and fellow Colonial member issued a challenge. James Edmondson, who won his third Colonial club championship last year, told Palmer that a birdie would match the caddie’s low round at Hogan’s Alley. “What do you do when you get that thrown at you,” Palmer said. Palmer hit his approach to 5 feet at the 388-yard ninth hole for an 8-under 62 that matched the lowest PGA Tour first round at Colonial. That put him a stroke ahead of John Rollins, who had his best round this season. For all the rounds Palmer has played at Colonial, where he has been a full dues-paying member since 2010, he had never had such a low score. He generally plays there two or three times a week during the off-season and once or twice during weeks he’s not playing the PGA Tour. “These old men here make
me grind because I have to give them so many shots. Maybe that helps,” Palmer said, smiling. “Usually in a practice round, I don’t think I’ve shot below 65. You just don’t grind a lot. In this situation, you grind a little harder. You are able to focus more. When I’m out here with the guys, I mean half the time I might grab a few (beers) for the back nine.” Graham DeLaet of Weyburn, Sask., wearing pants with a plaid design similar to the jacket Colonial winners get, matched David Hearn of Brantford, Ont., Morgan Hoffmann and John Peterson at 64. Matt Kuchar, No. 13 in the world ranking and the highest-ranked player in the 136-man invitational field, was in a group of six players at 65. Rollins, who like Palmer lives in nearby Colleyville, has playing privileges at Colonial like other PGA Tour players though he doesn’t play the 7,204-yard layout nearly as much as Palmer. “He’s a pretty permanent fixture in the men’s group and everything that goes on out here,” Rollins said. Palmer, the former Texas A&M player who has three PGA

David Hearn watches his tee shot on the 17th hole during the first round of the PGA Tour Colonial golf tournament on Thursday, in Forth Worth, Texas. Tour victories, had a bogey-free round, hitting 12 of 14 fairways and 14 of 18 greens in regulation, with his first birdie putt being his longest. He was still even par until his 17-footer on his fifth hole, the 442-yard 14th, that started his stretch of four consecutive birdies. The only other birdie over 10 feet was a 14-footer at the 391-yard sixth hole.
“It’s pretty neat. A lot of fun,” Palmer said. “Being a member here, we played it so many times, James and I. I felt comfortable over every tee shot. I hit driver almost everywhere that I could. I drove it perfectly today I felt. I hit it close a lot and made a lot of putts from about 5 or 6 feet.”

Encarnacion slam lifts Jays over Orioles BY THE CANADIAN PRESS Blue Jays 12 Orioles 6 TORONTO — Plenty of star power and promising pitching by the Baltimore Orioles gave the Toronto Blue Jays every reason to resign themselves to a long night. Through three innings, that is. Edwin Encarnacion’s grand slam was the highlight of Toronto’s 12-6 win over the Orioles on Thursday, but the adjustments made by Adam Lind, J.P. Arencibia and Brandon Morrow helped the Blue Jays overcome an early 3-0 deficit. Credit goes to Lind and Arencibia for being the first Toronto batters to figure out hard-throwing Orioles starter Kevin Gausman. Back-to-back doubles by the pair put the Jays on the scoreboard in the fourth inning, and they were back at it in the fifth following Arencibia’s two-run homer for a 4-3 lead. “We were able to put some good at-bats,” said Arencibia. “Their starter’s got pretty good stuff and throws hard. Edwin hitting that ball gives us some breathing room, makes the game, definitely not easier but definitely makes it a little more relaxing.” Arencibia said it helped to see Gausman’s arsenal after the first at-bat. The Orioles’ drafted the 22-year-old righty fourth overall last year, and he came into the game with just 13 games of pro experience and no appearances above double-A. Gausman (0-1) was effective early on the strength of a fastball that touched 98 miles per hour, but he lasted just five innings after surrendering four earned runs on seven hits with five strikeouts and two walks. Arencibia’s homer off Gausman put Toronto ahead for good. The Blue Jays’ catcher said he hoped it was a sign the team won’t break so easily when trailing against op-

Toronto Blue Jays first baseman Edwin Encarnacion celebrates with Blue Jays teammates Jose Bautista, left, and Melky Cabrera, centre, after hitting a grand slam against the Baltimore Orioles during sixth inning action in Toronto on Thursday. ponents. “I think that we’ve shown some confidence. It just wasn’t going the way we needed it to go. ... This game, it’s a game of failure. So everyone’s not going to be on their best every night. So everyone just to try to chip in and try to squeeze as many runs as we can.” There was no doubting Toronto’s confidence after Encarnacion hit the team’s first grand slam of the season into the left-field foul net off reliever Pedro Strop in the sixth inning. Encarnacion matched Arencibia with four RBIs each for the Blue Jays (20-27). Baltimore (25-22) looked to go on an early run after a tworun double by Manny Machado
and the major-league leading 15th homer of the season by Orioles first baseman Chris Davis. But Morrow (2-3) rolled with the hits and gave Toronto’s offence time to rally. The righthander looked in control until the eighth inning when he gave up back-to-back homers. He finished the game with a season-high six earned runs allowed on 10 hits, with five strikeouts and a walk. “I fell in a good rhythm and was rolling pretty good through there,” said Morrow. “Kind of had my sight set on finishing the game. It’s frustrating for me to go out give up the two home runs without getting an out there in the
eighth. It’s a good win, but it put a sour taste in my mouth.” Morrow also struggled whenever Machado was at the plate. The Orioles’ star third baseman hit three doubles off Morrow and leads baseball with 21 on the season. Morrow wasn’t all that bothered by it after the game. “Well, I mean, he just scored once right? Wasn’t all that bad,” he said. Gausman meanwhile didn’t seem as though he’d taken a loss. He won praise from both team’s managers on a night he said he’d been waiting for his whole life. “Definitely a learning experience for me but it was awesome. It was everything I could
have imagined and more,” said Gausman. The game turned contentious in the sixth inning when Colby Rasmus’s hit forced O’s outfielder Nate McLouth to dive into the left-field stands to make the catch. He went out of view but popped up with the ball in his glove as Blue Jays fans around him waved off the catch. That prompted a drink thrown at McLouth from the stands and a trip to the outfield by the umpires and Baltimore manager Buck Showalter. In the end, Rasmus was ruled out and McLouth stayed in the game. “It just kind of startled me for a second,” McLouth said of the tossed drink. “I’m not really sure how close it landed. That’s just one person doing something they shouldn’t do.” Encarnacion’s grand slam later in the inning put Toronto ahead for good. J.J. Hardy scored in the seventh for Baltimore, which made a game of it in the eighth when Markakis and Jones hit back-to-back home runs off Morrow. The Blue Jays added plenty of insurance in the bottom of the inning. First, Anthony Gose stole home from second base on a passed ball by O’s reliever T.J. McFarland for a 9-6 lead. Gose just barely beat the relay and home plate umpire Tony Randazzo’s safe call prompted another visit from Showalter. “I think that (Gose) could spare some of his speed and give it to me,” quipped Arencibia. Encarnacion and Mark DeRosa walked to load the bases before Arencibia knocked in his fourth run of the night. Lawrie followed with a broken bat single to score Encarnacion, and Rasmus hit a sac fly to bring home DeRosa for a 12-6 lead in an inning that saw every Blue Jay hitter visit the plate.
Wings continue to roll with shutout win over Hawks
BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Red Wings 2 Blackhawks 0 DETROIT — Jimmy Howard kept Jonathan Toews in his misery, making three saves against the struggling star to help the Detroit Red Wings beat the Chicago Blackhawks 2-0 on Thursday night in Game 4 of the second round series to put the NHL’s best team during the regular season on the brink of
elimination. When Howard wasn’t using his glove or pads to deny Toews, Detroit’s skaters were rattling him and his teammates with a physical presence that is clearly making them uncomfortable. “They are getting frustrated,” Howard said. “Our guys are doing a great job in front of the net.” Chicago’s Corey Crawford did a solid job in his net, but he couldn’t kick his right leg out quick enough to stop
streak since 1988. The Blackhawks had a power play with 4:45 left in the game when Kindl was called for hooking, but they couldn’t tie the game. Crawford made 25 saves and allowed one goal, after giving up seven goals in the previous two games. Howard was just a little bit better, earning his first shutout of this postseason and the second of his career in the playoffs. He has helped the Red Wings win five of their last six games since trailing Anaheim 3-2 in the first round. “He has kind of been in a groove for a while now,” Detroit coach Mike Babcock said. “And, we need that to be successful.” Kindl scored his first goal of his first post-season, keeping up a trend that has helped the rapidly improving Red Wings pull within a win of their first trip to the Western Conference finals since 2009 when they got past Chicago and went on to lose Game 7 in a Stanley Cup finals rematch against Pittsburgh. Detroit’s young players — six playing in their first playoff season — have been contributing to help out stars Pavel Datsyuk and Zetterberg. Red Wings rookie Brendan Smith scored the winner in Game 2 at Chicago to even the series. First-year player Damien Brunner and Gustav Nyquist, who was pointless in his first four postseason games last year, had goals in overtimes against the second-seeded Ducks. Chicago’s 25-year-old centre, Toews, should seemingly be in the prime of his career, but he is in a slump against a team that appears to be getting to him physical and mentally.

Detroit Red Wings goalie Jimmy Howard stops a shot by Chicago Blackhawks center Andrew Shaw during Game 4 of the Western Conference semifinals in the NHL hockey Stanley Cup playoffs in Detroit, Thursday.
Jakub Kindl’s shot on a power play midway through the second period and he was on the bench in favour of an extra skater when Daniel Cleary sealed the victory in the final minute. After losing Game 1, seventh-seeded Detroit has surged into control by handing the Blackhawks their first three-game losing streak of the year. Game 5 is Saturday night in Chicago. “The pressure is on them,” Detroit defenceman Jonathan Ericsson said. Yes, it is. And, no one in the Windy City will want to extend the series more than Toews. “We’ve got to find a way to force a Game 6,” he said. The Blackhawks desperately need their captain to score and lead after he extended his goal drought in a composure-crumbling performance. Toews was called for three penalties in the second — two for high-sticking — and could’ve gone to the box a fourth time in the period for slashing Red Wings captain Henrik Zetterberg while an official stood between them. “Emotions run high in some of these games, and my stick got a little loose there,” he said. “I was playing hard. Sometimes that happens.” The Red Wings took advantage of the second power play Toews gave them when Kindl sent a low shot to the near corner from the top of the left circle. “We’d like to keep him in the box,” Ericsson said. “He’s not as good for them in the box.” Chicago had killed its first 30 penalties of the playoffs and matched the 2001 St. Louis Blues’ feat of playing eight post-season games without giving up a power-play goal, the longest such
Renegades looking for success this season ALBERTA WOMEN’S MAJOR LEAGUE SOCCER BY DANNY RODE ADVOCATE STAFF Red Deer Renegades head coach Ado Sarcevic has a good feeling about the Alberta Women’s Major League season. Not that he expects to dominate the league, but with a veteran lineup and the addition of several new faces, he believes the team will take a step in the right direction. “I’m happy with what I see,” he said. “I’ve been with the team for two or three years and overall we’re better than we have been. We have more depth, where we can play without one of our starters and not suffer.” Last season Paula Dadensky was one of the few strikers who consistently contributed on offence. This year with the addition of Sydney Daines from the Renegades U18 team, Sarcevic believes they’ve strengthened their attack significantly. “We have more offensive players, which will make a difference. We won’t have to rely on just one or two players to do all the scoring.” He also feels the team will be deep in the middle and on defence, led by Amber Regnier and Adi Moyer, both RDC players. Regnier, who was an Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference all-star last season, returns to the team after missing a year. “She certainly adds depth to the defence,” said Sarcevic. Dadensky was also an ACAC allstar last season up front as was Kayla Keenan in the midfield. Both played with the RDC Queens, who finished third in the ACAC. “We have a strong nucleus of players from the college and we’ve come to an agreement with RDC to support each other,” added Sarcevic. “It’s a perfect situation for us. We’re part of the Renegades program and we want the U18 players to move up to us and also to RDC. “Hopefully this will bring us more success, but like everything it’s one step at a time.” Overall the Renegades, who were called Red Deer City Football Club last year, have 12 present and former RDC players, including keeper Lauren Good, who is now with the University of Calgary Dinos. Claire Wallace, Shannon Middlemiss, Tara Berger, Terra Salmon,
Teagan Donald, Cori van der Voort and Kristi Lem are also from RDC. Sarcevic has five players from the U18 program, including Daines. Others are Kaitlin D’Arcy, Laryssa Ubels, Kayla Blacquiere and Paula Dadensky Natassia Wright. Jenni Annicchiarco and Vanessa Nelson played with the senior women’s program in Red Deer. Sarcevic, who works with Red Deer City Soccer, likes the fact the MLS team is with the Renegades. “I believe it’s an advantage to be part of the Renegades,” he said. “It allows the players to relax a bit and just concentrate on practices and games. We have great sponsors and we’re looking for individuals to look after offfield things the players used to have to worry about.” The club will be selling season passes and will have a special “party” on June 1. The Renegades open their season Saturday in Edmonton against Victoria. They were originally to open at home June1 against Edmonton Northwest United. However, that game has been moved to June 12 while the Renegades open at home June 8 against Lethbridge. All their games are at Great Chief Park. Sarcevic would have liked a little easier team to face in their opener, considering Victoria are one of the best programs in the country. “We’re also going to be missing five players, so we have to call up some U18 kids to fill out the roster, but it’s the way it is. Maybe they’ll take us for granted.” The Renegades did play exhibition games against the Renegades U18 girls and U16 boys. “We got a chance to work on some things, such as our possession game,” said Sarcevic. “We want to control the ball more rather than kicking it long and chasing after it. We did a good job of that in those two games and we scored as well.” Paul Morigerau and Carla Giannioudis are assistant coaches and Sanela Sarcevic manager. firstname.lastname@example.org
Quick leads Kings in shutout of Sharks, take series lead BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Kings 3 Sharks 0 LOS ANGELES — Jonathan Quick made 24 saves in his seventh career playoff shutout, and the Los Angeles Kings moved to the brink of their second straight trip to the Western Conference finals with a 3-0 victory over the San Jose Sharks in Game 5 on Thursday night. Anze Kopitar and Slava Voynov scored, and Jeff Carter added an empty-net goal as the defending Stanley Cup champions won their 13th consecutive home game in dominant fashion and lead the series 3-2. Antti Niemi stopped 26 shots for the Sharks, who have played more than 96 minutes without a goal since they appeared to be taking control of the series midway through Game 4. Game 6 is Sunday night at the Shark Tank. The home team has won every game in the series, and the Kings remained unbeaten at Staples Center since March 23. After losing the past two games in San Jose and struggling through much of the past three games overall, the Kings rebounded with another stretch of dominant play from their Conn Smythe Trophy-winning goalie, who also shut out San Jose in the series

opener. Quick won his 27th post-season game, taking sole possession of the franchise record from Kelly Hrudey. After getting soundly outplayed at the start of the past three games, the Kings met the Sharks’ tempo and urgency from the beginning in Game 5. The Kings sharpened their physical game, outmuscling and outhitting the Sharks to take a 3-2 series lead. Kopitar opened the scoring late in the second period, tapping in a loose puck after a sustained stretch of pressure on Niemi. Voynov then scored 3 seconds after a penalty expired early in the third, firing home his fourth goal in nine games. Quick finished up from there, making a spectacular point-blank save on Joe Pavelski a few seconds before Carter wrapped it up with an emptynetter. Los Angeles, 25-4-1 at home this season, has won seven straight home playoff games dating to last season’s Stanley Cup clincher against New Jersey. San Jose substantially outplayed the Kings in the first period of the past three games, and Los Angeles cited a strong start as its key priority for Game 5. The Kings got it, albeit in a scoreless first period, outshooting the Sharks 9-6 while playing a punishing physical game that slowed down Joe Thornton and hampered San Jose’s relentless speed.

Cornish says goal is to get Stamps back to Grey Cup CFL BY THE CANADIAN PRESS Star Calgary running back Jon Cornish may get odd looks when he stands on one foot ordering lunch or spins through a doorway. But he says he can’t stop working on ways to improve his game, after setting a new CFL record last season for a Canadian with 1,457 rushing yards. “You just live like that and it becomes your norm. If people think it’s weird then, whatever,” he said Thursday on a CFL pre-season conference call. This season he says he wants to work on his pass routes and other aspects of his game he thinks can improve, such as his emotional response. He recalls one game in particular against the Toronto Argonauts. “I had a penalty that possibly cost us a touchdown,” he said. “That kind of emotional outburst is something that I want to have restrained.” He says that kind of growth comes with maturity. “I feel like I’m a more mature player at this point and I can better deal with any negatives.” Despite the breakout numbers, it wasn’t all highlight reels in 2012 for the 28-year-old, who was picked 13th overall in the second round of the 2006 CFL draft. After lending a major hand in the 11-2 run that overcame a slow start and got them into the Grey Cup, Cornish and the Stamps were shut down by the Toronto Argonauts, who emerged 35-22 winners. Coach John Hufnagel says he wants to once again see Cornish be a factor in each and every game. But he adds that he particularly respects the way Cornish bounced back and tried even harder if he had an off game, like his minus-one-yard effort in Week 5 last season. Hufnagel also says Drew Tate is definitely the team’s No. 1 quarterback
going into camp. He has recovered from a fractured wrist that put backup Kevin Glenn in for the West final and the Grey Cup, after Glenn subbed for Tate earlier in the season due to another injury. “He’s ready to play, I’m ready to have him on the field playing,” Hufnagel said of Tate, although he also expressed a lot of confidence in Glenn and Bo Levi Mitchell as backups. “Right now quarterback is in my belief a position of strength for us but Drew will be the starter coming into training camp.” Tate has worked out with a mixed martial arts trainer to improve his core strength but the coach says his No. 1 pivot has no desire to climb in the Octagon, like Toronto Argonauts running back Chad Owens, last season’s MVP and all-purpose yards leader. Owens surprised even the Argos when he entered the cage in Hawaii in April, earning a unanimous decision over another MMA newcomer. Despite their apparent strength, the Stampeders have been bringing a lot of young players into camp this season, adding three more Thursday — import receiver Donavon Kemp, import defensive lineman Aronde Stanton and import defensive back Jerett Sanderson. “You improve most of the time with your young players,” said Hufnagel. As for holes he has to fill, linebacker Marc Calixte retired after last season after playing a major role on special teams. “We’ll have enough fast guys to go down and disrupt things,” said Hufnagel, pointing to a few new additions such as the off-season signing of Yannick Carter as well as 2013 draft pick Ben D’Aguilar. Two players expected to show up at camp still nursing injuries are receiver Johnny Forzani and defensive tackle Etienne Legare. Hufnagel hopes Legare will be ready once the season starts but Forzani, who had to have surgery to repair a high-ankle sprain that didn’t heal properly, will take longer.
Stars among destinations for former Canucks head coach Vigneault THE CANADIAN PRESS VANCOUVER — Former Vancouver Canucks coach Alain Vigneault appears to have some interesting opportunities as he pursues a new job. Given his experience and success with the Canucks, Vigneault should get some consideration for the vacant Dallas Stars job. Dallas has a strong core of young, emerging talent, but missed the playoffs the past two seasons under former firsttime NHL coach Glen Gulutzan. Vigneault guided the Canucks to a berth in the 2010-11 Stanley Cup finals, two Presidents trophies and six Northwest Division titles. But he got the axe after the Canucks were eliminated in the first round of the playoffs for the second straight year. In addition to the Dal-
las job, he could get consideration for vacancies that have yet to occur, pending the conclusion of the post-season. Most of the opportunities appear to be with teams that toiled in the Eastern Conference this season prior to next season’s realignment. Four or five Eastern teams that missed the playoffs — including Winnipeg, Philadelphia, New Jersey, Carolina, and Florida — will likely be evaluating their coaching situations extensively. John Tortorella of the New York Rangers could also be on the hot seat because of the Rangers’ second-round struggles against Boston. Winnipeg could be a good fit for Vigneault, because he coached Vancouver’s former top farm club for one season before moving up to the Canucks and knows the

team’s owners and management. Most teams who toiled in the Western Conference this season appear to be set. Accordingly, Canucks general manager Mike Gillis has no shortage of possible candidates as he looks to find Vancouver’s next coach. Gillis, who has come under heavy criticism since firing Vigneault on Wednesday, must decide whether he wants someone with experience or a fresh young face. Potential candidates mentioned publicly range from former Buffalo Sabres coach Lindy Ruff to ex-Calgary and New Jersey coach Brent Sutter to former Tampa Bay Lightning coach Guy Boucher. Scott Arniel, the coach of Vancouver’s AHL farm club in Chicago, appears likely to get an interview based on his lengthy ties to the Canucks.

Indy 500 to have four women behind the wheel BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS INDIANAPOLIS — Katherine Legge didn’t know she’d have a shot at the Indianapolis 500 until it was time to qualify, when Schmidt Peterson Motorsports decided to put her in its second car at the last second. Pippa Mann chatted with tire makers, dropped in on the folks from the television networks and even tried to get cozy with engine maker Honda in the hopes of landing a ride. Both of them have overcome long odds to join Ana Beatriz and Simona de Silvestro in Sunday’s 33-car field, matching the record of four women starters. But in their minds, just starting the race is no longer a story: The next big story will be win a woman finally wins. “Until somebody is competitive on a regular basis, and winning races, and then probably more than one, it’s still going to be a bit of a novelty,” Legge said Thursday. “And it stinks in a way, because there’s no reason for it.” Especially given the history of women at the Brickyard. Janet Guthrie was a pioneer when she qualified for the first time in 1977, eventually making three starts at Indianapolis. She finished ninth in 1978, and even put to rest much of the remaining machismo when she revealed that she had driven with a broken wrist. Lyn St. James and Sarah Fisher were still considered unique when they started in the “Greatest Spectacle in Racing,” but it wasn’t until Danica Patrick’s arrival in the mid-2000s that more barriers began to fall. She qualified fourth in 2005, eventually led 29 laps during her open-wheel career and finished third in 2009 after challenging for the win. “Danica’s done a great job, and Danica’s made a lot of money in the way she’s marketed herself,” Legge said, “so nobody can blame her for that. She brings attention to it, for sure, which is a positive thing, but we’re all individual people trying to do it our own way.” And now that Patrick is running fulltime in the Sprint Cup series — she’ll start Sunday night’s race in Charlotte — the focus has turned to who will take over for her. Legge may be the longest shot in the field. After losing her ride with Dragon Racing, she arrived at Indianapolis just to say hello to her old pal A.J. Allmendinger, who had hooked up with Penske Racing. But when she got wind of a seat in a second car for Schmidt Peterson Motorsports — with no sponsorship money in sight, mind you — Legge managed to get onto the track just in time for qualifying. She’s run about 20 total laps, but her perseverance was rewarded: Not only did she qualify, but Angie’s List has come aboard as a sponsor for Sunday’s race. “My whole career, I’ve never had the money or the backing on a regular basis to make it easier or to make continuity or anything like that,” she said, “so I had to keep fighting. My whole career, I’ve been fighting. I keep fighting for every opportunity to prove what I’m capable of.” Mann understands what it means to fight for a ride. She only joined up with Dale Coyne Racing a week before qualifying, and only after pestering just about everyone she could think of to give her a shot. Just like Legge, the gritty determination to get back
in the driver’s seat finally paid off, and she’ll start 30th on Sunday. “All the female drivers are here, myself included, because we’re race winners in various feeder series,” said Mann, who was on the pole at Indianapolis when she was running Indy Lights. “We’re here because we’re race winners,” Mann said, “and that’s the most important thing.” Beatriz, the first woman to win in Indy Lights, also happens to be Mann’s teammate — the first time there’s been two women on the same team. She’ll be making her fourth Indy 500 start. Then there’s de Silvestro, who has perhaps the best chance of running near the front. The Swiss driver is ninth in points heading to Indianapolis, and will be trying for her third straight top-10 finish during the best start of her career. But she’ll have to do it from the 24th spot on the grid in the No. 78 car fielded by KV Racing Technology. “I have a sponsor behind me, and we’ve been working together for several years, so there’s an advantage maybe,” de Silvestro said. “You should have a deal together. That’s how racing works.” Not always, of course. Not for Legge and Mann, and many other women drivers. “If you look at Katherine’s deal, it came together like it did, those are really difficult circumstances,” de Silvestro said. “I’m happy she qualified, but I don’t think it should be like that.” But until another woman wins an IndyCar race, like Patrick did in Japan, or the first woman takes the checkered flag at Indianapolis, de Silvestro knows finding rides will remain a problem.

Katherine Legge, of England, talks to a crew member after the second day of qualifications for the Indianapolis 500 auto race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Indianapolis.
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS CONCORD, N.C. — Denny Hamlin isn’t ready to say he’s back, even after winning the pole for the Coca-Cola 600 with a record-setting qualifying lap Thursday night. He said it would take a win Sunday night or at another Sprint Cup race later in the season before he’s willing to make that declaration. But Hamlin showed he continues to be on the mend after being sidelined for four races with a compression fracture in his lower spine following a March 24 crash involving former teammate Joey Logano. Two weeks after finishing second at the Darlington 500, Hamlin broke the track record with a lap of 195.624 mph to capture his first pole at Charlotte Motor Speedway. “Getting the big trophy on Sunday — that is the validation that you are truly back,” Hamlin said. Hamlin has a far bigger goal in mind anyway. He and Jimmie Johnson are the only two drivers to make the Chase for the Sprint Cup every year they’ve been eligible. He wants to keep it that way — and then some. “It’s going to take wins and consistency throughout the next several months to put ourselves in position to have a chance at a championship,” Hamlin said. “That is what we’re here for. But these small victories give me confidence I’m still capable and still able to do the job at 100 per cent like I should be.” Four Toyotas will start in the top five. Hamlin will start alongside Kurt Busch on the front row, followed by Matt Kenseth, Mark Martin and Clint Bowyer. Kasey
Kahne will start sixth, Greg Biffle seventh, Kyle Busch eighth, Jamie McMurray ninth and Ryan Newman rounds out the top 10. Johnson, who won his record fourth Sprint All-Star race on Saturday, will start 12th, one spot behind Dale Earnhardt Jr. Danica Patrick, who has struggled on the 1.5-mile tracks this season, starts 24th. It looked like Kurt Busch would take the pole.But when Hamlin heard Busch say in an interview he missed his marks on turns three and four, he decided to step away from his normally conservative qualifying nature and go for the top spot. “He made a mistake and I capitalized on it,” Hamlin said. Hamlin did everything he could to push the envelope. “Normally I wouldn’t commit myself to running a lap like that — it’s too dangerous,” Hamlin said. “But we have a mission ahead.” Hamlin, who has never won a Sprint Cup race at CMS, was one of eight drivers to top the previous track record of 193.708 mph set last October by Biffle. Hamlin said he was sore for about two days after Darlington, but said he’s feeling much better now. “Everything is good,” Hamlin said. It is Hamlin’s 14th career pole, including his second this year. The other came at the Auto Club in Fontana. “How did that turn out? Great race,” Hamlin quipped, referring to the crash with Logano that knocked him out for more than a month. Despite qualifying second, Kurt Busch believes he still has the car to beat on Sunday after winning two segments at the All-Star race here Saturday night.

Cell phone use to be curbed at Memorial DUBLIN, Ohio — There isn’t a pro golfer who doesn’t have a story about a “Play That Funky Music” ringtone coming from the gallery during a backswing, or the time a tourist with a flip phone was snapping photos in the middle of a critical putt. The Memorial is the latest tournament to try to do something about it. The event, which tees off next week, allows fans to carry cellphones on the course if they are put on vibrate. For the first time, a cadre of volunteers will follow the most popular groups, hoping to alleviate spectators’ loud rings and the efforts of amateur photographers. Jack Nicklaus, founder and host of the Memorial, applauds (but not during a shot) the steps taken. “The tournament has achieved the balance between giving patrons the ability to use their mobile devices in the appropriate and permitted areas, while giving the players in the field the ability to compete without disturbance, distraction or interruption,” he said. Areas will be set aside to make and take calls. The patrolling volunteers will try to clamp down on any abuses everywhere else. A year ago at the Memorial, Phil Mickelson cited “mental fatigue” for withdrawing after the first round at Muirfield Village. Most believe the real reason was his frustration with a flood of distractions from outside the ropes involving cellphones. “It took Phil out of his game,” said Bubba Watson, who joined Mickelson and Rickie Fowler in that rock-star grouping. “Phil’s a great player and a great champion and it just took him out of his game. It’s sad. It’s sad that cellphones can make or break a championship.” As a result, the Memorial is trying to stave off a repeat. “That group last year made us realize that we had work to do in improving our mobile-device policy,” said Dan Sullivan, the Memorial’s executive director. “It wasn’t isolated to that group.” Nothing is isolated about the problem; it’s everywhere. Se Ri Pak was hitting a tee shot on the fourth hole of the 2012 U.S. Women’s Open when a cellphone rang in the stands. During the Web.com tour event in Panama a couple of years ago, the phone of Alastair Presnell’s caddie went off five times in seven holes.
Haas, Waldorf share lead at Senior PGA Championship THE ASSOCIATED PRESS ST. LOUIS — Jay Haas is familiar with Bellerive Country Club — and it showed in the first round of the Senior PGA Championship. Haas, who grew up in nearby Belleville, Ill., and Duffy Waldorf shared the lead Thursday, shooting 5-under 66 in breezy, cool conditions. The 59-year-old Haas, the winner of the major championship in 2006 and 2008, had a bogeyfree round. The 50-yearold Waldorf had six birdies and one bogey. “I didn’t expect it going out,” Haas said about shooting a low round. “I wasn’t very sharp today, but managed to ... my misses were in the correct spots and I took advantage of a few good iron shots and just kind of kept it between the ditches, I guess you would say. But I’m very, very pleased.” Haas has 16 Champions Tour victories after winning nine times on the PGA Tour. Waldorf is winless in 11 career starts on the 50-and-over tour after winning four times on the PGA Tour.
“Tee to green, it was a very good day,” Waldorf said. “All in all, I hit the ball really well. I really liked my iron play. I had quite a few birdie putts. I didn’t make them all so I feel like I still had some more out there.” Sonny Skinner, the PGA head professional at River Pointe Golf Club in Albany, Ga., was a stroke back along with Japan’s Kiyoshi Murota. “I’m not going to adjust my goals because I did have a good day today,” Skinner said. “My main goal coming into this tournament was to just try to stay within each shot and each moment. A lot of times when you’re on the outside looking into a big stage like the Champions Tour, it’s real easy to get excited and your eyes wandering all over the place at how wonderful it is. “You lose sight of the fact that, ’Hey, I got to play golf.”’ Australia’s Peter Senior and Taiwan’s ChienSoon Lu shot 68, and Tom Watson, a two-time Senior PGA champion, was another stroke back in a 12-player group that included Kenny Perry, Fred Funk, Rocco Medi-
ate, Russ Cochran, Dan Forsman, Gil Morgan and Bill Glasson. Defending champion Roger Chapman opened with a 72. Peter Jacobsen, the 2004 U.S. Senior Open winner at Bellerive, had a 75. The temperature hovered in the low to mid60s under overcast conditions. A light but steady rain fell three times in the afternoon, with each shower lasting less than 30 minutes.

BMW PGA CHAMPIONSHIP BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS VIRGINIA WATER, England — Rory McIlroy could only manage a disappointing 2 over par 74, while defending champion and former No. 1 Luke Donald slumped to a 78 on a rain-affected first round of the BMW PGA Championship on Thursday. South Africa’s James Kingston led the field after finishing with a 6 under 66 before play was interrupted by a 90-minute rain delay during the afternoon. Later, five groups were yet to finish as darkness fell and play was suspended. Kingston had a one-stroke lead over Finland’s Mikko Ilonen, with Scotland’s Scott Henry and Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano of Spain tied for a share of third place after both carded 68s. McIlroy, whose total included 33 putts, said: “I feel as though I am playing well enough, but it is just not being reflected on my score card. I played the first 12 holes really not missing a shot, but I just feel at the minute I am not getting that much out of my rounds.” The Northern Irishman, who played in the company of his Ryder Cup winning teammates Graeme McDowell and Paul Lawrie, was 3 under after 12 holes before carding three bogeys in succession from the 13th. The double Major winner then pared the 16th, but dropped further shots at 17 and 18. “I’m not sure what the problem is because, as I said, the first 12 holes was really good golf and very solid, but I just got on a run of bogeys and couldn’t get off it,” McIlroy said. His effort continues a disappointing first-day trend at the Tour’s flagship event. He shot a 74 on day one of the tournament last year, a 76 the year before, and a 74 on the opening day of the 2010 BMW PGA Championship. Also signing for a 74 was fellow U.S. Open winner and Northern Irishman, Graeme McDowell.
office by a cellphone. Yet most governing bodies disdain anyone having cellphones on the course during tournament play. Irony of all ironies, the USGA offers its book of rules as an app for Android devices or iPhones — an app that can’t be used during the U.S. Open by fans because the USGA prohibits phones on the course during the tournament. “We put competition first and foremost,” USGA executive director Mike Davis said in 2011. “We’re focused on fans, but if we were totally focused on fans you’d have the rope lines closer to play. We’re more focused on the competition itself. And until we, as an organization, are convinced that we can conduct a U.S. Open, a Women’s Open, U.S. Amateur, Girls’ Junior, with spectators using cellphones, we’re going to continue to prohibit them.” On the other hand, most public events are a feeding frenzy for those with cameras on their cellphones. Been to a concert lately? Odds are, arrayed in front of you were hundreds of tiny screens all taking video or photos as the music plays. It’s just like that on the PGA Tour, except the players hate loud or sudden noises while plying their trade. They can mentally blot out the sounds of blimps overhead, birds chirping and roars elsewhere on the course but they jump 3 feet when a phone clicks somewhere on the other side of the ropes. “The thing is, everyone thinks the players can’t play with noise,” said Peter Senior, who competes on the The Champions Tour. “They can. But when it’s really quiet and you hear it, that’s the problem. If there’s constant noise — even yahooing — the guys can play as long as it’s constant. But when it’s dead quiet and then something happens, the guys get upset.” In another fitting irony, after Mickelson was angered by all of the cellphone distractions during his first-round 79 a year ago at the Memorial, what did he do? He whipped out his own phone on the sixth fairway and texted a message to PGA Tour Commissioner Tim Finchem about all the distractions on the course provided by ... well, cellphones like the one he had in his hand. Even Woods has used his cellphone — during a pro-am, not a tournament — to call one of his representatives to get his 3 wood regripped at Quail Hollow in 2009. So it’s not just parents checking on the babysitter who think that it’s handy to have a cellphone at all times. Muirfield Village hosts the Presidents Cup in October, a team competition pitting the U.S. vs. an International side. Even such major events are immune from cellphone distractions.

Presnell finally asked his caddie to throw the thing into a bush, which he did. The PGA Tour and others are trying to meet people halfway. Bay Hill and The Players Championship also have volunteers who confiscate the phones of offending spectators and issue claim checks. The fans can pick up their devices later. At last year’s PGA Championship, marshals would stop someone using their phone and put a red check mark on the back. If there was already a check mark there, meaning they had already been warned, the phone was taken away until the spectator claimed it upon leaving the course. The British Open allowed cellphones for the first time last year but observers said there were continual abuses of fans using cameras during play. Adding to the confusion, The Open even offers tournament updates to mobile devices for those walking the course. At the Masters, you must leave your phone at the gate. The prevailing opinion is that Augusta National will never, ever permit cellphones for spectators. Just as cellphones have become a part of daily life, they’ve become a necessary evil for players. Tiger Woods has won 14 major championships and is the defending champ at the Memorial, where he’s won five times. He’s grown accustomed to the snaps, clicks and rings — although many of his playing partners have not. “When they’ve played with me on the weekend rounds, they’re not quite used to the amount of movement and ... well, now the new thing is the cellphones going off,” he said last year. “It costs them a shot here and there, and that’s what it’s done to me in most of the tournaments I’ve played.” Some places are worse than others for distractions. But not even the world’s No. 1 player has an answer for how to combat them. At Woods’ own AT&T National last year, the crowds were large and particularly loud. Marshals regularly had to collect cellphones from fans caught taking pictures during the tournament. Watson, the 2012 Masters champion, says the situation can be almost unbearable for players. “When they make these marquee pairings, more people are going to follow them and more people want to take pictures. So it makes it very difficult,” Watson said after Mickelson’s upsetting round last year. “Ever since they made that rule that cellphones are allowed, it’s just not fun playing.” It’s an odd predicament for golf’s ruling bodies. After all, the sport’s financial lifeblood is large corporations which buy the most ad time and gobble up tournament sponsorships. Those are institutions run by businesspeople who need to be linked to their

TOO MANY UNKNOWNS, LANDOWNERS SAY BY PAUL COWLEY ADVOCATE STAFF Residents living near the site of a proposed business to blend compounds used in oilfield fracking urged Lacombe County’s municipal planning commission to reject the project. There are too many unknowns about the nature of the substances used by NEXT Legacies Technologies and what would happen if there was a fire or a spill at the site about two km north of Lacombe, said nearby landowners during a hearing on Thursday. The commission agreed and unanimously rejected the application. Andrew Wildeboer, who owns a dairy about three km north of the site, expressed concerns about what would happen if chemicals got into nearby waterways, which lead to a number of other dairies. Sometimes problems with a new product only emerge many years later, said Wildeboer. “To me (the plant) should be in an industrial park. That’s
‘I DON’T KNOW IF WE SHOULD BE APPROVING THIS AT THIS TIME OR NOT.’ — COUN. KEITH STEPHENSON
why we have industrial parks.” Rick Williams said he needed more information about what would happen in case of a spill and whether groundwater would be affected. “These haven’t been answered for me today. I need to know that.” Reached later by phone, NEXT investor Grant Creasey was taken aback that the commission did not go with county planning staff’s recommendation to conditionally approve the project “We’re just a little surprised. It seems a little irregular, especially when the county already has examples of oilfield supply and service companies approved in the area,” said Creasey, who is a Lacombe city councillor and has announced plans to run for mayor in the fall. Creasey said they were led to believe approval would be a
“rubber stamp” because they had met all of the county’s requests for additional information made when their application was first reviewed last November. “I really don’t understand what it is they want,” he said. A decision was deferred then until an independent environmental review was provided that confirmed the development would not impact nearby Wolf Creek, and that a landscaping plan be prepared. A report by Calgary’s Peregrine Environmental Services was included in the company’s new application. It states the business will blend, re-pack and store organic substances before they are trucked to customers. The products have no “obvious potential to cause significant health or environmental impacts (and) there is no need for special controls or prac-
tices.” Storage sites and the blending plant would not drain towards any waterways, the report adds. In a public open house last September, NEXT showed off its technology that it believes will revolutionize petroleum production. The company says it has developed a fracturing compound that gets superior results with very little water and no toxic chemicals. However, on Thursday councillors said they needed more information. “The technology is brand new. I don’t know if we should be approving this at this time or not,” said Coun. Keith Stephenson. Coun. Paula Law said there are “ too many unknowns with this.” About a dozen residents applauded when the commission voted against the application. “We’re very pleased,” said Wildeboer, outside council chambers. “There were a lot of neighbours that were very concerned about it.” email@example.com

Orphaned wildlife adoptions studied MEDICINE RIVER LAUNCHES RESEARCH OF ITS SUCCESSFUL PROGRAM BY MYLES FISH ADVOCATE STAFF A long-running program that finds new families for orphaned wildlife is operating with a larger purpose in 2013. The Medicine River Wildlife Centre takes in orphaned animals every year, and for the last number of years, it has been working to make sure those orphans are able to head back into the wild with new families. It is a program that was developed at the centre near Spruce View and has since spread around North America. “We’re proving that wildlife will adopt orphans and what we believe is that if we can get them with an adoptive family, then they’re going to be raised more naturally, and it’s going to save us a lot of time, work and money. We’re going to be spending donors’ dollars a little bit wiser and the animals will
benefit,” explained executive director Carol Kelly. While the program’s success over the years is proof enough to Kelly as to its effectiveness, this year the program is running with a research permit, so it can be properly documented and studied. “We’ve been very successful, and this is just another stage to actually do the research to prove it for those naysayers out there,” said Kelly. The research will focus on the fostering of coyote pups, beaver kits and deer fawns and subsequently tracking them when back in the wild via a transmitter. But the centre is not only seeking to find proper families for those species; any orphaned animals that come into the centre can be placed back into the wild if a suitable situation is found. The biggest challenge is in finding new homes for young deer, coyotes and ducklings, according to Kelly. To facilitate such relocations, the centre is asking the public to share knowledge of the whereabouts of any wildlife with young that could possibly take in an orphan.

An orphaned white-tailed deer is fitted with a radio transmitter that will be used to track it once it is fostered back into the wild by the Medicine River Wildlife Centre. There are many things to consider when determining a suitable home for an orphan, said Kelly, such as the age of the existing young in a group and the hazards around a home such as a road or an unwelcoming neighbour. If a proper home is located, the centre goes to work seeing how receptive the existing animals are to a newcomer. “In the case of fawns, what we do is play the call of a fawn in distress and if that doe is receptive, she will come in and show herself and show that she is quite angry and upset because she hears the distress call, and then she adopts the
fawn,” said Kelly. “If landowners are interested, they can be there when we do the fostering. They can actually see what’s happening and be part of it, too.” To let the centre know of a possible new home for orphaned wildlife in Central Alberta, call 403-728-3467 or visit www.mrwc.ca for more information. While Medicine River’s interpretive centre is closed for the summer as renovations to the building take place, visitors are still welcome to come to the facility, where there is a nature trail and picnic area. firstname.lastname@example.org

Hobbema man faces gun charges
Red Deer will get a little greener in the spirit of the centennial with the planting of the centennial grove on Saturday. The grove will consist of more than 100 trees, among them the city’s centennial tree — the hot wings tatarian maple. Other trees to be planted in the space southwest of Parkland Mall between Gaetz Avenue and 49th Avenue will be flowering crab apple and pear trees and 40 spruce trees donated by Appollo Landscaping and Melcor Developments. The grove is sponsored by Nova Chemicals. Volunteers will be planting the trees on Saturday, with Mayor Morris Flewwelling doing a ceremonial sod turning at the site at 9:30 a.m. Centennial trees are available for individual purchase at Parkland Nurseries. Coupons for the three centennial plants — the tatarian maple, ivory halo dogwood shrub and tiny hope lily flower — are available at the centennial office at 4816 Gaetz Ave.
A 27-year-old Hobbema man is facing several charges related to a home invasion in the County of Wetaskiwin. Wetaskiwin RCMP said a man allegedly entered a house and assaulted Dawne Gilchrist, 86, and Marion Gilchrist, 83, around 8 p.m. on May 21. The suspect then left the house in a vehicle belonging to the victims. Both victims were transported to a nearby hospital and have since been released. RCMP recovered the stolen vehicle a short distance from the house. The man, who was not in the stolen vehicle at the time it was recovered, was arrested later that night. Joshua Piche is charged with two counts of aggravated assault, one count of break and enter with intent to commit an offence, one count of theft of a motor vehicle and one count failing to comply with a probation order. Piche appeared in Wetaskiwin provincial court on June 6.
Council reviews transportation plans
Witnesses fail to show, trial dropped
Red Deer city council will take a final look at what’s in store for the future of transportation in the city. Following two months of public consultation, the draft Mobility Playbook comes to council for approval on Monday. The playbook is essentially a framework for transportation planning that includes all modes to move around the city. Council took a first look at the plan in March before it went out for public consultation. The main change is a new and final plan related to a balanced road network for drivers, transit riders, pedestrians and cyclists. The city will start work on a number of plans, should the draft be adopted. The trails, transit and transportation master plans will incorporate the ideas from the playbook and provide more detail to balance the needs of residents for mobility. The playbook stems from the Integrated Movement Study, a major transportation workplan.
A criminal trial did not go ahead on Wednesday for a man charged in connection with a six-hour standoff with Red Deer RCMP in December 2011. Crown prosecutor Tony Bell said that his witnesses did not show and therefore the charges of escaping lawful custody and resisting a police officer against Dixon Bergseth, 35, would be withdrawn. Bergseth was charged regarding an alleged domestic dispute on Dec. 22, 2011. Proceedings were previously stayed at the Crown’s request after it was learned that the alleged victim had changed her story. Bergseth pleaded guilty on Wednesday to failing to appear for a trial on June 18, 2012, regarding the incident. Defence lawyer Patty MacNaughton said her client has been in custody for 14 months already, so she suggested 60 days with time served. He was sentenced to five months, time served.
Standoff suspect back in court on May 29 A man charged with 18 offences in connection with an armed robbery and standoff with police in Highland Green made a brief appearance in Red Deer provincial court on Wednesday. David James Kertesz, 27, of no fixed address, stands charged with offences including kidnapping, extortion, and pointing a firearm following an incident on May 14. At about 2 a.m. that day, RCMP received a call of a robbery with a firearm outside an apartment building located on Parke Avenue in Red Deer. It was determined the suspects fled to a home on Halman Crescent. RCMP tried to contact the suspects in the home, but police say they refused to come out. The South emergency response team (ERT) was called and the people inside were subsequently removed. Neighbours who were evacuated were allowed to return home around 10 a.m. Kertesz will be back in court for election and plea on May 29. He is remanded in custody.
Innisfail seniors care workers join AUPE Approximately 100 seniors care employees in Innisfail will now be represented by the Alberta Union of Provincial Employees after voting to join the union last week. The workers at Sunset Manor and Innisfail Country Manor — a combined 102-suite supportive living facility and 57-suite independent living facility — are joining the union in response to what they say are unmet promises from their employer regarding wages and benefits, according to an AUPE press release. AUPE vice-president Jason Heistad said there is a trend among workers in rural centres to seek unionization as they are typically paid less than their urban counterparts. The bargaining unit includes all auxiliary nursing and support em-

Courtroom outburst leads to more time A Red Deer man who caused a courtroom ruckus a week ago has received more probation. Mark Bough, 39, was sentenced to 12 months of probation on Tuesday after pleading guilty to an assault that occurred on May 17. He was arrested on May 17 at the Red Deer courthouse after causing problems after pleading guilty to common assault involving his wife. He had pleaded guilty to common assault after trying to shoot his wife with an airsoft pellet gun while she was cooking dinner on April 3. He received a conditional discharge with one year of probation for that assault. Court was adjourned briefly after sentence was passed. Bough stepped out of the courtroom and then returned to retrieve belongings from the row of seats immediately behind the row in which his wife was still seated. He began shouting and swearing after having words with a sheriff who was blocking access to her and another sheriff who was warning him to back away. A struggle broke out, with three more sheriffs called in from other areas of the courthouse to help subdue him.

Runaway train car takes free ride through town OKOTOKS — Police in a southern Alberta community had to respond to an unusual call Wednesday when a runaway train car rumbled through town. RCMP in Okotoks, just south of Calgary, say the wayward train car was empty and eventually stopped when it bounced off the tracks. No one was injured and there were no collisions as the rail car had activated safety barriers when it crossed intersections. CP Rail (TSX:CP) says it is investigating and considers what happened to be a case of vandalism. CP says the car travelled about 500 metres before it ran into a safety device called a derail, which stopped the train car.

Number of EI recipients falls Statistics Canada says the number of people receiving regular employment insurance benefits continued to trend down for a fifth consecutive month in March. It says the number of recipients declined by 1.0 per cent or 5,200 people, to 523,700. The number of beneficiaries was down 8.1 per cent compared with a year earlier. All four Western provinces as well as Newfoundland and Labrador reported fewer beneficiaries in March, while there was little change in the other provinces. To receive EI benefits, individuals must first submit a claim and the number of claims provides an indication of the number of people who could become beneficiaries.

TD looks for cost savings TD Bank Group (TSX:TD) is looking to cut costs as low interest rates appear likely to put pressure on profit margins for at least another year. “Finding current-year cost savings is not enough,” president and chief executive Ed Clark said during a conference call Thursday. “We continue to focus on more permanent cost reductions. We are carefully reviewing all opportunities on this front.” The bank said it is heartened by improving economic conditions in the United States and expects that the economy south of the border to outperform Canada’s over the next few years. But Clark noted that the environment in the U.S. remains challenging. “The good news is that our strong volume growth has been able to offset most of this compression, leaving us in a very strong position,” he said.

Canada looking for ‘gateway’ to biggest trading blocs OBSERVING LATIN AMERICAN ECONOMIC INTEGRATION TALKS BY THE CANADIAN PRESS CALI, Colombia — Canada’s many forays into free-trade talks across the globe are not the ineffective scatter-gun approach described by critics, but an effort to set up “gateways” to the world’s biggest trading blocs, says International Trade Minister Ed Fast. “There’s a lot of misunderstanding of what we’re doing,” Fast said in an interview in a cool and quiet corridor at the lush country club where he and Prime Minister Stephen Harper are observing Latin American economic integration talks. Ottawa is negotiating with the Ukraine because it is a “gateway” for Canadian business into the surrounding region, Fast said. Similarly, that’s why Canada has a deal with Jordan, negotiations with Morocco, and is flirting with Thailand and now Latin America. “It’s a launching pad into the larger region,” Fast said. Canada is an observer of the Pacific Alliance discussions to allow for free movement of capital, labour, services and investment. The alliance, which groups Mexico, Colombia, Peru and Chile, has imposed an
aggressive agenda upon itself, pushing hard to break down barriers and deepen integration. “In less than two and a half years, we have made profound advances,” Juan Manuel Santos said in his opening statements to the one-day summit. “Let’s talk about the route forward, over the new few months, about how to deepen our integration,” Santos said, urging his counterparts to make history. “We have immense, immense potential.” Whether or not it becomes a full-fledged member is a decision for another day — both for Canada and also for the four founding members who need to decide if Canada is a good fit. There’s no doubt that Canada’s approach to economic growth is compatible with the Pacific Alliance at a high level, Fast said. “They are the most likeminded and trusted partners in the region.” Even though most of the alliance members have seen changes in government recently, their free-market approach to economic growth is well-entrenched, Fast added.
It’s that kind of statement that makes NDP international trade critic Don Davies believe Ottawa’s aims are more political than economic. Canada already has free trade agreements with all the Pacific Alliance members. So the federal Conservatives seem more interested in joining a right-wing club that would counter the left-wingers that are so powerful in Latin America, Davies said. The involvement with the Pacific Alliance “seems quite clear to be primarily a political initiative, not a trade one,” Davies said in an email. From a trade perspective, Canada is already stretched too thin, he added. “I have huge concerns about the Conservatives’ scatter-shot trade strategy. There appears to be no sense of prioritizing. Our trade negotiators are overstretched.” Given that almost all of Canada’s trade with the alliance countries is tariff-free, and that Canada is already talking to most of the members in the Trans-Pacific Partnership negotiations, “it seems clear that the Pacific Alliance is a waste of energy and unnecessary duplication of resources.”
CALGARY — A senior TransCanada Corp. executive says the resistance to the approval of the proposed Keystone XL oilsands pipeline has made the company more cautious about future cross-border endeavours. Alex Pourbaix, president of energy and oil pipelines at the Calgary-based pipeline and utility company (TSX:TRP), said the long delays getting Keystone approved in the U.S. has been an education. “When you’re involved in one of these cross-border projects you require a presidential permit. At any time in the process, especially one that goes four or five years, you get caught up in the election cycle,” Pourbaix said Thursday. “I think it’s not a surprise to anybody that this project, to some degree, has been caught up in election politics and it’s added to the time. We just have to be careful in thinking about that as we go forward with these kind of projects.” The future of Keystone is still fuelling battles in Washington, D.C. The $7 billion Keystone XL pipeline would bring 700,000 barrels of oilsands crude a day from Alberta through six states and to Gulf Coast refineries. Republicans in the House of Representatives made yet another attempt this week to take the decision out of U.S. President Barack Obama’s hands. Legislators voted 241-175 in favour of the Northern Route Approval Act, which would give Congress the power to green-light the pipeline and nix the need for a presidential permit. The bill, however, faces a far less certain future in the Democrat-controlled U.S. Senate. The White House has threatened to veto the bill, saying it “seeks to circumvent longstanding and proven processes for determining whether crossborder pipelines are in the national interest.” Pourbaix, who speaking to business leaders about getting Alberta’s oil and natural gas to market, said he expected Keystone to be a challenge, but not to this degree.

The S&P/TSX composite index fell 94.14 points to 12,658.09, while the Canadian dollar rose 0.73 of a cent to 97.14 cents US. On Wall Street, the Dow Jones industrials fell 12.67 points to 15,269.93, the S&P 500 was down 4.84 points at 1,650.51 and the Nasdaq dipped 3.88 points to 3,459.42. The 7.3 per cent slide in the Nikkei to 14,483.93, which was also partly blamed on a spike in Japanese government bond yields, amounted to the biggest drop for the index since Japan was hit by a devastating earthquake and tsunami more than two years ago. The Nikkei has been the best-performing major index this year, having risen around 45 per cent to five-year highs before Thursday’s drop. The index has been buoyed by the announcement of aggressive monetary stimulus by the Bank of Japan, which has piled pressure on the yen. The weakness in markets could also be fallout from mixed messages from U.S. Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke on Wednesday. Bernanke told the U.S. Congress that the Fed has no plans to end its $85-billion a month in bond purchases. But, when pressed, he said the Fed would consider stopping the program as early as Labour Day if the economy shows significant signs of improvement. Much of the recovery in global stock markets over the past few years has had its roots on the extra liquidity that has flowed into financial markets as a number of central banks, particularly the Fed, have pursued stimulus programs. Meanwhile, weaker-than-expected Chinese manufacturing data also resulted in concerns in the markets over the outlook for commodities. The July crude contract was down three cents to US$94.25 a barrel and the energy sector dropped 0.59 per cent. July copper fell eight cents to US$3.30 a pound, with the metals and mining sector leading decliners on the TSX with a drop of 2.89 per cent. Gold was the only advancer on the index, with an uptick of 0.42 per cent. June bullion surged $24.30 to US$1,391.70 an ounce. The markets had been much lower earlier in the day, but clawed back

Its shares closed at $24.86. The indexes were also helped by the release of encouraging unemployment benefits data in Canada and the United States. Statistics Canada said the number of people receiving regular employment insurance benefits declined by one per cent to 523,700 in March. The number of beneficiaries was down 8.1 per cent compared with a year earlier. In the U.S., unemployment benefits applications fell by 23,000 last week, while unemployment aid declined to a seasonally adjusted 340,000 in the week ended May 18. That’s down from 363,000 the previous week. The U.S. housing market also showed signs of improvement. Sales of new homes rose in April to the second highest level since the summer of 2008 while the median price for a new home hit a record high. New home sales rose to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 454,000 in April, up 2.3 per cent from March and just slightly below January’s 458,000. Both January and April had the highest sales rates since July 2008. In corporate news, TD Bank (TSX:TD), the first of Canada’s major banks to report its latest quarterly earnings, said profits were up two per cent from a year ago at $1.723 billion or $1.78 per share while adjusted earnings were $1.8 billion or $1.90 per common share. While the adjusted earnings were up six per cent from a year ago, they were just short of the $1.91 per share consensus estimate of analysts compiled by Thomson Reuters. The bank’s shares dropped 0.46 per cent, or 39 cents, to $83.65. Meanwhile, debtholders of struggling wireless carrier Mobilicity approved a plan to sell the company to Telus for $380 million, the first of several hurdles the deal faces before it can close. If the acquisition is approved, there will be continuing service for Mobilicity’s 250,000 cellphone customers and jobs for its 150 employees. Shares in Telus (TSX:T) were down 1.09 per cent, or 41 cents, to $37.28. TSX VENTURE EXCHANGE TORONTO — The TSX Venture Exchange closed on Thursday at 942.05, down 0.04 point. The volume

NEW YORK — McDonald’s once again faced criticism that it’s a purveyor of junk food that markets to children at its annual shareholder meeting Thursday. The world’s biggest hamburger chain has been looking to keep up with changing tastes as people increasingly opt for foods they feel are fresh or healthy. Customers can now order egg whites in its breakfast sandwiches, for example. McDonald’s also recently introduced chicken wraps to go after people in their 20s and 30s looking for better-for-you options. But on Thursday, McDonald’s was taken to task by speakers associated with an advocacy group about its menu and advertising toward kids. As with other shareholder meetings where critics are given the rare chance to face executives, McDonald’s Corp. allotted about a half-hour for attendees to ask CEO Don Thompson questions. Among those was a 9-year-old girl who asked Thompson to stop “tricking kids into eating your food.” The girl’s mother echoed the request later on, saying McDonald’s undermines parents by marketing to children. Another speaker asked that McDonald’s remove its locations from hospitals, while others asked it to stop targeting communities of colour by signing stars such as Olympic gymnast Gabby Douglas and the NBA’s LeBron James. Three of the individuals were members of Corporate Accountability, which has been critical of the compa-
ny’s marketing practices. Others were health professionals, parents or writers linked to the group. Thompson stood by the company’s menu, saying McDonald’s doesn’t sell “junk food,” pointing out items such as the yogurt parfait and side salad and noting that the company has been adding more fruits and vegetables. Thompson, who took over as CEO this past summer, also noted that his kids eat at McDonald’s and that many of its 1.8 million employees are parents. Still, he said at one point, “I do agree we have some issues, and we can be part of the solution.” Other fast-food chains such as Burger King, Wendy’s and Taco Bell aren’t exactly paragons of healthy eating, of course. And plenty of mom-and-pop restaurants sell food with just as many calories and fat as a Big Mac or Quarter Pounder. But with more than 14,000 U.S. locations, McDonald’s is an easy target because of its size, and for many it has become a symbol of processed foods. The criticism is far from new, but its persistence illustrates the uphill battle McDonald’s faces in trying to evolve its image and stay relevant. After years of outperforming its rivals, the company has been struggling to increase sales more recently. During the first quarter, global sales at restaurants open at least a year fell 1 per cent.

Mobilicity takes first step in Telus takeover Struggling wireless carrier Mobilicity has taken the first step in the process of being acquired by Telus in a $380-million deal that will ultimately need federal government approval. Debtholders of Mobilicity approved a plan on Thursday to sell the company to Telus Corp., which will go to court for approval of the deal early next week. An acquisition by Telus would provide continuing service for Mobilicity’s 250,000 cellphone customers and jobs for its 150 employees, said Mobilicity president and chief operating officer Stewart Lyons. “This is a significant step towards final approval of the plan through which the business, combined with the financial strength of Telus, can be continued in a way that will benefit our customers and em-
ployees,” Lyons said in a news release. Mobilicity provides no-contract cellphone service in Toronto, Ottawa, Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver. Industry Minister Christian Paradis has said he will take whatever times is necessary to review the acquisition carefully. Under current rules, Mobilicity’s spectrum licence cannot be sold to established carriers before 2014. However, Telus (TSX:T)has urged that the deal be approved sooner because Mobilicity is in dire financial straits. Mobilicity, as well as Wind Mobile, bought spectrum — radio waves over which cellphone networks operate — that was set aside for new players to bid on in order to bring more competition to the cellphone market. As a result, their licences can’t be sold and transferred to any of the

big carriers until next year. Telus said it welcomed the approval by Mobilicity’s debtholders.

Heating-cooling mats for pets recalled due to health risk
LIKE us facebook.com/thecityofreddeer
BY THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA, Ont. — Health Canada says a line of heating-cooling mats for dogs and cats is being recalled due to a potential risk for children and pets. Royal Canin has determined its mats contain diethylene glycol. The potentially dangerous chemical can be released from the mat if it is damaged, and can cause illness to both kids and pets if ingested. The recalled mats consist of a plastic sheet made of nine gel pockets and an outer, removable red fabric cover with the Royal Canin logo on one corner. The mats were distributed from Jan. 27, 2011 to April 1, 2013. Around 465 of the Royal Canin-branded mats were distributed in Canada as promotional items at dog and cat shows. They were also made available to members of the Royal Canin Elite Breeders Club through the firm’s website. Consumers are asked to stop using the recalled mats immediately and return them to Royal Canin. Since it was a promotional item, they won’t receive a replacement. However, members of the Royal Canin Elite Breeder Club who redeemed points to purchase the mat online will have their points reimbursed upon its return. For more information, contact Royal Canin Customer Care by telephone at 1-800-527-2673, by email or through Facebook.

Tornado had power of many atomic bombs DWARFS POWER OF ATOMIC BOMB THAT LEVELLED HIROSHIMA BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON — Wind, humidity and rainfall combined precisely to create Monday’s massive killer tornado in Oklahoma. The awesome amount of energy released dwarfed the power of the atomic bomb that levelled Hiroshima. On Tuesday afternoon, the National Weather Service gave the tornado the top-of-the-scale rating of EF-5 for wind speed and breadth and severity of damage. Wind speeds were estimated at between 200 mph (320 kph) and 210 mph (337 kph). Several meteorologists contacted by The Associated Press used real-time measurements to calculate the energy released during the storm’s life span of almost an hour. Their estimates ranged from 8 times to more than 600 times the power of the Hiroshima bomb, with more experts at the high end. The tornado at some points was 1.3 miles (2 kilometres) wide, and its path went on for 17 miles (27 kilometres) and 40 minutes. That’s long for a regular tornado but not too unusual for such a violent one, said research meteorologist Harold Brooks at the National Severe Storms Laboratory. Less than 1 per cent of all U .S. tornadoes are this violent — only about 10 a year, he said. With the third strong storm hitting the suburb of Moore in 14 years, some people are wondering why. It’s a combination of geography, meteorology and lots of bad luck, experts said. If you look at the climate history of tornadoes in May, you will see they cluster in a spot — maybe 100 miles (160 kilometres) wide — in central Oklahoma “and there’s good reason for it,” said Adam Houston, meteorology professor at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln. That’s the spot where the weather conditions of warm, moist air and strong wind shear needed for tornadoes combine in just the right balance. Several meteorologists also offered this explanation for why the suburb seemed to be hit repeatedly by violent tornadoes: “bad luck.” Scientists know the key ingredients that go into a devastating tornado. But they are struggling to figure out why they develop in some big storms and not others. They also are still trying to determine what effects, if any, global warming has on tornadoes.

NEW YORK — Monday’s powerful tornado in suburban Oklahoma City loosely followed the path of a killer twister that slammed the region in May 1999. The National Weather Service estimated that the storm that struck Moore, Oklahoma, on Monday had wind speeds of up to 200 mph (320 kph), and was at least a half-mile (800 metres) wide. The 1999 storm had winds clocked at 300 mph (480 kph), according to the weather service website, and it destroyed or damaged more than 8,000 homes, killing at least two people. Kelsey Angle, a weather service meteorologist in Kansas City, Missouri, said it’s unusual for two such powerful tornadoes to track roughly the same path. The 1999 twister was part of a two-day outbreak sweeping mostly across central Oklahoma — similar to the past two days. The weather service has tentatively classified the Moore twister’s wind speeds as an EF4 on a 5-point scale. Angle said less than 1 per cent of all tornadoes reach EF4 or EF5. The thunderstorm developed in an area where warm moist air rose into cooler air. Winds in the area caused the storm to rotate, and that rotation promoted the development of a tornado. The most destructive and deadly tornadoes develop from rotating thunderstorms. The biggest known tornado was nearly 2 ½ miles (4 kilometres)
wide at its peak width, which the weather service describes as near the maximum size for a tornado. It struck Hallam, Nebraska, in May 2004. The deadliest tornado, which struck March 18, 1925, killed 695 people in Illinois, Missouri and Indiana. Deaths from twisters have been declining in recent years because of improved forecasts and increased awareness by people living in tornadoprone areas, especially in smaller and rural communities.

Rosalind the cow, played by Aidan Sullivan in the head end and Aidan Olley in the hind quarters, rehearses with Sydney Malyon, left, Alandra Power and Alexander Wozny at the Scott Block. The group were rehearsing their parts in Rosalind of Old Basing, which is part of the centennial production of Red Deer River Stories put on by Tree House Youth Theatre. The production opens on Thursday and runs to June 8.
Centennial play a rich local hodgepodge BY LANA MICHELIN ADVOCATE STAFF Question: How do you recreate 100 years of Red Deer’s history on stage? Answer: You don’t — not if you’re Tree House Youth Theatre’s artistic director Matt Gould and you’ve been tasked with writing the official centennial play to mark Red Deer’s big birthday. Gould couldn’t imagine writing a literal “A to Zed” history of the city that begins with Red Deer’s founder Leonard Gaetz wheeling and dealing to get the railroad to locate onto his land, thereby sparking the city’s growth, yadda, yadda. ... Instead, Gould admitted, “I cherry picked — I picked certain interesting stories and mixed it up and made it ridiculous.” He may have omitted Gaetz’s dry land negotiations, but included the thrilling true story of Red Deer Boy Scouts capturing the fugitive police shooter Arthur Kelly after finding him crouching in a field in 1911. There is also a colourful reference to Red Deer’s celebrity Jersey cow, Rosalind, who received a shiny silver trophy and inspired a celebratory (non-beef) dinner for being the world’s best milk producer. And there will be a brief appearance by the city’s conflicted first mayor, Francis Galbraith, who ran city hall while also reporting on his own performance there while publisher of the Red Deer Advocate. Gould describes his original stage play, Red Deer River Stories — a Tree House Youth Theatre production that will run from Thursday to June 8 at the Scott Block in downtown Red Deer — as a rich local hodgepodge of this and that.
But his mixed theatrical bag, which also celebrates Tree House’s 25th anniversary this year, will still encompass this community’s past, present and future. With a cast of 14 actors, aged 12 to 17 years, the play begins in 1913, when youngsters from the high school literary society are celebrating Red Deer becoming a city with a vaudeville-style stage show at the local Lyric Theatre. Gould admitted he “borrowed” some inspiration from old film footage of George Burns and Gracie Allen doing their comedy schtick. In the first act, actors from the literary society will perform a variety show that includes scenes from what was then Red Deer’s recent history — including the Scouts’ citizen’s arrest of Kelly, who fled after pumping two bullets into Police Chief Bell (who survived). Gould said back stage action at the theatre will also be shown. “Everything will be on stage.” The play’s second act jumps to the flower power early 1970s, when Red Deer is celebrating its 60th birthday. Gould chose to focus on the jubilee year of 1973 instead of the city’s 50th anniversary a decade earlier “because the ’60s were so uninteresting,” compared to the dynamic 1970s. That’s when society’s mores shifted, due to the Vietnam War, women’s and civil rights movements, the sexual revolution and other changes. The ’70s were also Gould’s formative years, “so I could relate to that time,” he added. The “complex” middle act will feature the Lindsay Thurber Comprehensive High School drama club putting on a groovy “Age of Aquarius” style show, and in the process, revealing changes the community is undergoing. Gould said some heavier “issues” will
be introduced — including one 13-year-old character, who is beaten and kicked out of the house for being gay by his alcoholic dad. “The (societal shift) is part of the fabric of the interactions between characters,” he added. The third act will show the audience various visions of the future — from the imaginative Jules Verne-like projections from 1913 (spaceships to the moon, golfing under the sea) to the bleak 1970s view (choking pollution, overpopulation), to some of the more optimistic forecasts being made today. Despite global warming, Gould said he’s been reading material lately that suggests “the future is not as bad as you might think. It’s really turned my thinking around.” He hopes the play will inspire audiences to envision how they would like Red Deer to be on its 200th birthday. The young Tree House actors have taken to his esoteric script “like ducks to water,” said Gould, who’s really pleased by the strong performances. Some of the young actors have now had five Tree House seasons under their belts and “they’re performing at a very high level.” He hopes Red Deer River Stories will not only highlight the city’s history, but will also showcase Tree House’s young performers. “They are an extremely dedicated cast, and it’s going to be really exciting.” The play runs from May 30 to June 8. Tickets to the opening night gala at the Scott Block (which includes the play as well as refreshments, a question and answer session, and a brief introduction by Gould), are $25. Otherwise, tickets for the rest of the 7:30 p.m. shows (and 2 p.m. Saturday matinees) are $15 from www.treehouseyouththeatre.ca. email@example.com
The Wolf Pack ends with a whimper BY LINDA BARNARD SPECIAL TO THE ADVOCATE The Hangover Part III Two stars (out of four) Rated: 14A Sobriety is not Todd Phillips’s friend. In The Hangover Part III, the third and final instalment of his gold-plated franchise, the director chases the tale of the buddy groomsmen a final time, tying up loose ends and filling in plot holes we didn’t realize existed in a story of three clear-headed men and a psychotic. This makes for a more interesting movie storywise than 2011’s Hangover II, the lazy, unfunny retread of The Hangover spiced up in desperate fashion with a chain-smoking monkey. But don’t pop the champagne just yet. Those looking for hilarity and hijinks with episode three will find the party is indeed over. For The Hangover Part III, Phillips and writer Craig Mazin (Hangover Part II, Identity Thief) seem less concerned with laughs than they are with penning a freaky desert chase epic. A brave choice, but in so doing, Phillips has excised the plot points that once drew the biggest yuks: there’s no clock running out on a wedding, no bachelor party and no drunken blackouts. In fact, the most amusing part of the movie happens after the end credits start to roll, a gift to fans who may have been feeling unsatisfied and perhaps even ripped off by the previous 100 minutes. This time the story focuses on Alan (Zach Galifianakis), the creator and curator of the Wolf Pack. The three-bean salad of neurosis and psychotic be-
At the haviours is off his meds (exactly how he is different from Alan on his meds is debatable). He’s so out of control, he buys a giraffe, which he then gleefully drives into a highway bridge and decapitates. (This is hardly a spoiler; it’s the focal point of the trailer.) His Wolf Pack pals, handsome Phil (Bradley Cooper), worrywart Stu (Ed Helms) and disposable Doug (Justin Bartha) stage an intervention to convince Alan he needs to go to rehab. They’ll even drive him to Arizona for treatment. Road trip! A carload of masked thugs has other plans, forcing them off the road and into the waiting arms of mobster Marshall (John Goodman, hardly his finest hour) who is convinced Alan is in contact with his old nemesis, effeminate wild man gangster Leslie Chow (Ken Jeong). Turns out he is. Chow has skipped from a Thai prison and is sending Alan affectionate text messages. Seems there’s a large amount of Marshall’s gold missing, and disposable Doug will do nicely as a hostage until the Wolf Pack tracks down Chow and gets it back. Characters from previous installments return for
quick bits that serve as flashbacks, and there are glimpses of the originality that made this journey initially worth taking. But it’s short lived as Phil, Stu and Alan (and Chow) end up back in Las Vegas by way of Tijuana, where Chow and the lads show just how sad the whole business has become with a remarkably unfunny scene involving fighting cocks and a small room. Alan slips deeper into whatever nasty stuff is stewing in his melon, which occasionally leads to surreal moments and even some solid comic bits. His exchange with Bridesmaids’ Melissa McCarthy (fast emerging as a comic genius) as a horny Vegas pawnshop owner, barred from certain casinos for good reason, is sublimely funny. Back in Vegas, there’s no laughs jackpot, even with the aid of a crazed limo chase and some amusing business involving bed sheets and the roof of Caesar’s Palace. Lines that should be funny don’t hit the mark, making the events come with a sense of déjà vu punctuated with a nagging feeling that something is missing. What could it be? Oh yeah, humour. Initially a hilariously funny R-rated buddy flick wrapped around a missing-groom-in-Vegas yarn, The Hangover grossed an estimated $467.5 million, established the careers of its stars and earning a welldeserved place on my Top 10 movies list for 2009. Although it stumbled badly in the second instalment, Part II still earned more than $100 million more than the original. The Hangover Part III will likely set the box office aflame once again but it will be all thanks to the goodwill and good times of the original. The adventures of the Wolf Pack, we are told, ends here. And it brings to mind words about bangs and whimpers. Linda Barnard is a syndicated Toronto Star movie critic.

Summer tour season kicks off Rock is countering with $4 beer. That’s right, $4 beer. Taylor Swift versus Kenny Chesney: On the surface it seems like Swift and Chesney have little in common beyond format, but both have a gift for filling seats. At one time Swift was the pupil and Chesney the mentor out on the road, but these days they’re equals when it comes to touring. Both can fill stadiums with shrewd choices for opening acts and both have had so much success on the road, you wonder how they keep it up. Paul McCartney versus One Direction: This one reminds us that American teenage girls have been screaming their heads off at British boy bands for a half-century.
BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS All anyone’s been talking about are those aged wonders The Rolling Stones and their 50th-anniversary tour, but there’s so much more happening on the road this summer. It’s a crowded tour market and everyone is competing for your entertainment dollar. The average concert-goer very rarely leaves that comfy chair to head to the arena or stadium, so there’s something of a battle royale out there for your attention. In that spirit, we paired some of the hottest acts on the road to compete for your attention: Kid Rock versus Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z: Ever the populist (and shrewd marketer), Kid Rock recently called high ticket prices for the TimberlakeHova Legends of the Summer Tour “garbage” and is countering with $20 tickets for his own Best Night Ever Tour. Timberlake and Jay-Z are playing at some of America’s most beloved ballparks and offer some of the hottest material going in music right now. Kid

When J.J. Abrams took over the Star Trek franchise in 2009, he boldly went where the series hadn’t gone before — romantically — pairing Uhura with Spock. Many fans disliked the change. Some loved it. Others didn’t care, because they just wanted to see Kirk and Spock make out. This story is about that third category. For decades, Kirk/Spock has been one of the most popular couples in fan fiction, a genre in which fans write stories using characters from books, movies, TV shows and even real life. (Kirk/Spock spawned the subgenre “slash” — fan fiction about same-sex entanglements.) Fan fiction is having a moment right now, and not just because Star Trek Into Darkness has thrown a luscious new villain, played by Benedict Cumberbatch, into the mix. The success of Fifty Shades of Grey, originally written as Twilight fan fiction, has major publishing houses intrigued. In February, Simon & Schuster published Beautiful Bastard, a reworking of another Twilight fan fiction; the sequel is out May 28. Last fall, Penguin hired a 16-year-old to adapt her One Direction fan fiction into a young-adult novel. Maybe it’s about time. “Fan fiction is one of the great unsung popular literary movements of the past 50 years,” Time magazine book critic and author Lev Grossman wrote this month. His novel The Magicians and its sequel riff on the magical worlds of J.K. Rowling, J.R.R. Tolkien and others, so you know that dude reads fan fic. Fan fiction is like methadone to a heroin addict, offering a come-down from the high of the original creation. It’s a rebound relationship, filling the gaping hole left when a favorite series ends (or starts to decline). “It makes you realize that not all of what you love about the characters has to come from the original creators,” says an X-Files fan fiction author who writes under the pseudonym Jintian (she did not want her real name published). “It can come from people who love the characters just as much as you.” She discovered fan fiction while searching the Internet for information on The X-Files. Do that today, and you might stumble on Happy Generation, in which Mulder and Scully investigate the disappearance of Santa Claus, or The 13th Sign, a story envisioning Mulder and Scully living a quiet life with a baby and a Volvo. (“Scully would never believe it, but all he’d ever wanted to be was normal.”) Fan fiction goes much deeper than major franchises. The adventurous Googler will find stories set in the ‘verses (fan fic lingo for fictional worlds) of My Little Pony, The Adventures of Tom Sawye and Sonic the Hedgehog. Then there are crossovers, which merge two or more universes. Pride and Prejudice in Middle Earth exists, for instance. (Mr. Darcy is a hot elf.) So does a mash-up of Lord of the Flies and Legally Blonde: 6th CALGARY The Musical.

Heartbreaking yarn a great summer read The Light Between Oceans By M.L. Steadman $18.99 Scribner Publishing It will soon be time for summer holiday reading, so put this title at the top of your list. Be warned that at least four tissues will be needed to mop up. Tom Sherbourne came back from the war of 19141918 a changed man, as did all those lucky enough to come PEGGY back at all. FREEMAN He had seen friends blown apart in mid sentence. Many who came home were lost souls, who had seen too much, the “shell-shock” sidelining them for life. Tom wanted peace and quiet, and he found it as a lighthouse keeper on Janus Rock, half a day’s journey from Point Partageuese, South Western Australia. Tom is a salt-of-the-earth kind of guy. He has been
a brave soldier, much decorated, and he felt keenly the loss of his comrades. As a lighthouse keeper, he proved meticulous at record keeping, and making the place ship-shape. He saw no one but seabirds for months at a time; a healing time after the bitter war. In a rare trip to Partageuese, he meets Isabel and he can’t believe his good fortune. They marry and Isabel seems to thrive on their isolated island. When Isabel becomes pregnant, they are both excited. Isabel reads books and Tom worries over resources like any soon to be father. But Isabel miscarries and their dreams are curtailed. When the second pregnancy also ends in miscarriage, they are both shocked at the unfairness of life. Finally, she carries a baby almost full term, but one horrific night the child is stillborn. They are alone on Janus Rock and Isabel cannot bear to tell her parents of what she sees as yet another failure. Soon after, a small boat knocks against the shore of Janus Rock. On board are a dead man and a very much alive new baby girl. It is the baby’s cry that brings Isabel and Tom down to the boat.
Tom knows that his report must include the details of the landing and he sets out to do so. Isabel sees the arrival as a gift of God, after so much sorrow. The baby is anxious to be soothed and fed, and Isabel loves her on sight. The dead man must be buried and Tom does that, but Isabel prevails on him to “wait a bit” with his report. So the days pass. Tom is a man of principle and he warns Isabel that “somewhere there is a mother, missing her husband and child.” Isabel’s family knew she was due to give birth, and the men who come with the supply boat every few months, so they are not surprised that a baby has arrived. Time goes by and the little girl, Lucy, turns two years old. A visit is planned to the mainland to meet Isabel’s parents at last. On shore they hear of other’s losses and realize their actions have consequences. Their own dream must come to an end. It’s a heartbreaking yarn, and the author’s first book. Peggy Freeman is a local freelance books reviewer.
The sad saga of Amaranth Advisors MacArthur Genius
storms Princeton in Nigerian love story
BY ADVOCATE NEWS SERVICES In September 2006, hedge fund Amaranth Advisors collapsed after losing more than $6 billion in the natural-gas futures market. In Hedge Hogs, Barbara T. Dreyfuss tells the story of the math-whiz traders whose risky dance with deregulation led to the collapse. The star of Dreyfuss’s distressing tale is Brian Hunter, the Amaranth celebrity described by sycophants at the now- defunct Trader Monthly magazine as a top dog among a crop of “red-hot traders.” Dreyfuss, a former securities analyst, rehashes a lot that we know about Hunter’s antics. And despite admirable efforts to explain the arcana of futures trading, she may lose the lay reader when illustrating the Amaranth drama with details of widening or narrowing trading spreads. But she does a great job of putting Amaranth’s out-of- control trader into historical context, explaining the blitz of deregulation that set the stage for someone like Hunter to do maximum damage. Dreyfuss also captures the juvenile culture of trading luminaries who battle like enemies in some twisted fantasy. Hunter and futures trader John Arnold, founder of the hedge fund Centaurus Advisors, fight each other in trading duels more suited to the video game Halo than real life. “’If you want to succeed and make money, you want to destroy someone else,’ a trader tells Dreyfuss. “’That’s just how it works. If I want to be successful in this industry, I’m going to want to destroy five guys.’” Armed with degrees in physics and mathematics, Hunter started trading natural-gas futures at TransCanada in his native Calgary in 1998. He left for Deutsche Bank’s New York headquarters in 2001, where he worked in the global commodities markets division. By the time he left Deutsche Bank for Amaranth 2 ½ years later, he’d been demoted by a supervisor who would say later in a deposition that Hunter couldn’t be trusted to “do the right thing for the bank.” As is to be expected in the world Dreyfuss is describing, Hunter was “quickly scooped up” by Amaranth despite that rocky ending with Deutsche Bank. A year later, he parlayed an offer from SAC Capital Advisors’s Steven Cohen into a sweetened deal to stay at Amaranth. Money was a factor in the new agreement, but not the only one. Hunter demanded that he be allowed to move from Amaranth’s Connecticut headquarters to Calgary. He also wanted to be free from the oversight of a former Enron trader named Harry Arora who’d been keeping tabs on him. The star got what he wanted. Arora later quit, warning on his way out that Hunter “could blow up the entire firm.” By spring 2006, clients were seeing red flags in the sudden massive gains in Amaranth’s energy portfolio
BY ADVOCATE NEWS SERVICES
— up $1 billion in April. What goes up in a dramatic spike, those clients correctly figured, must come down. BlackRock, the New York investment-management firm, was concerned enough that it paid a penalty to bail out. After that, Hunter’s bosses began making the first of several unheeded requests that he cut back on his positions. In May, Amaranth lost more than $1.1 billion, and a death spiral was in full force. The book describes traders who manipulate markets and eviscerate pension-fund portfolios but don’t have a clue about the destructive roles they play. In June 2006, when Amaranth was on its slide to oblivion, the clearly out-of-control Hunter observed to a colleague that other people in the markets “were getting out of control.” In another exchange, a trader who works with Hunter refers to the “fricken deviant market.” It becomes clear to the reader pretty quickly who the deviants are here. Hint: They do not include “the market.”
gotiations were handled by Robert Barnett, the Washington attorney whose clients have ranged from President Barack Obama to former Treasury Secretaries Henry Paulson and Timothy Geithner.
Backstreet Boy Nick Carter to release memoir about substance abuse
Publisher: Sen. Elizabeth Warren has book deal; release planned for 2014 NEW YORK — U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, a favourite among liberals for her forceful advocacy for consumers and criticisms of the financial industry, has a book deal. The Massachusetts Democrat has an agreement with Henry Holt and Company for a book, currently untitled, to be released in spring 2014, the publisher announced Wednesday. Warren, a first-term senator elected last fall, will write about her childhood and early professional life, but the book will mostly be a “rousing call” for the middle class, according to Holt. She will describe her work on creating the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and her opposition to powerful interests in Washington and on Wall Street. She will also provide an insider’s view of Congress. “For decades, America’s middle class has been chipped at, squeezed, and hammered,” Warren, 63, said in a statement issued by Holt. “I am eager to tell the story about my experiences on the frontlines of policymaking and to talk about what has happened to working families in this country and how we work together to rebuild the middle class.” “Elizabeth Warren is a rare person in today’s political world: a fiery advocate who believes that David can beat Goliath,” said Holt’s president and publisher, Stephen Rubin. “Her core belief in the power of everyday citizens, along with her front row seat in Washington and her invaluable experiences as a teacher, lawyer, senator, wife and mother, show a devotion and fearlessness that will come though on every page of an elegant and informative book.” Warren was well represented for her book.

NEW YORK — Nick Carter isn’t only writing songs — he’s written a book.

Ifemelu and her boyfriend, Obinze, are middleclass Nigerians, hardly “starving, or raped, or from burned villages” but still “mired in dissatisfaction.” They consider Lagos a backwater and they want out. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s fascinating, infuriating novel Americanah recounts their respective experience of the United States and Britain and, later, of the Nigeria they return to. At 35, Adichie is already distinguished. Her 2006 novel Half of a Yellow Sun, about the Biafran War, won the Orange Prize for Fiction, and in 2008 she received one of the MacArthur Foundation’s “genius” grants. She writes beautifully polished, semiformal prose with a slight English accent. And she likes to argue. Ifemelu could be speaking for the author when, told that one of her opinions is “pretty strong,” she shoots back, “I don’t know how to have any other kind.” Americanah jumps around in time and space, from Ifemelu’s present at Princeton to her past in Lagos, to her early American years in Philadelphia and Baltimore, to Obinze’s difficult period as a paperless foreigner in London, and finally back to Lagos, where, after many years, they meet again. Insofar as this big, baggy novel has a structure, it’s their love story. But the real action is in their sharp observations of the alien cultures they encounter and their equally withering takedowns of their native land. Adichie reserves a special viciousness for privileged liberals, like Ifemelu’s first American beau and his friends, “sunny and wealthy people who existed on the glimmering surface of things.” She has no patience with their kindhearted cluelessness and finds them grotesquely insensitive about race. “Racism should never have happened and so you don’t get a cookie for reducing it,” Ifemelu writes (or rants) on the blog that becomes her ticket to success. Um . . . you don’t? The white volunteers who lost their lives in Mississippi during the struggle for civil rights — don’t they at least deserve a pat on the back? Ifemelu is such a porcupine of racial resentments that I was stunned when her blog addressed the following advice to white Americans: “American Blacks are not telling you that you are to blame. They are just telling you what is. If you don’t understand, ask questions.” Not me. Ifemelu is about the last person to whom I’d address a possibly vexing question about race, given her alacrity for dressing people down. I had started to think Adichie simply dislikes white liberals when she supplied Ifemelu with a black liberal “He cooked organic vegetables and grains . . . He ran every morning and flossed every night.” A virtuous stiff, and an academic to boot. Ifemelu can hardly seem to bear any of the men she sleeps with after Obinze. I wouldn’t find Adichie’s generalized contempt so annoying if she didn’t exempt her protagonists. With very few exceptions, she reduces the other characters, white and black, Nigerian and American and British, to easily satirized types while granting Ifemelu and Obinze the dignity of complexity. That may be why blogging suits Ifemelu. “Americanah” often reads like a gorgeously written blog. And because Adichie is such an accomplished arguer, I enjoyed having my buttons pushed even when I was seething. But I kept wishing for a Comments section. I could have pointed out, for example, that the book has a disproportionately small number of gay characters, and that those it does have are unsympathetically depicted. In truth, I think that’s a silly if not ridiculous piece of literary criticism. Adichie is under no obligation to give equal time and attention to every minority. In the novel’s own prickly terms, though, it’s fair. Adichie/Ifemelu (often I couldn’t differentiate their opinions) is constantly harping on the insensitivity of the majority and the invisibility of the minority. Well, other minorities can play that game. That’s all it is, though — a game. And you don’t get a cookie if you win. — Americanah is published by Knopf in the United States and Fourth Estate in Britain).

I see this all the time for proms. Why aren’t advisers attuned to this subtle, hurtful discrimination against the student who doesn’t have a date? And please don’t suggest that two friends go together and get the discount. Why should they have to pair up to fit an antiquated pricing model? — One Price for All Dear One Price: This isn’t intended to punish single people. It’s intended to sell more tickets. If buying two tickets costs less per ticket, people are more likely to purchase two, even if it means asking your grandmother’s next-door neighbor’s uncle. And while we agree that school events should not favor couples, friends also buy these discounted tickets and go in a group. We are all in favor of that. Dear Annie: You told “Begging for Mummy and Daddy” to avoid the “culture that contributes to your drug use,” meaning he should stay away from his pusher and friends who encourage it. That hint is too subtle for a drug user. You should have told him that leaving drugs in the bathroom could get Mummy’s house confiscated. You should have told him to go to the library and use one of their computers to turn in his pusher anonymously.

Wine cases recovered after sitting at bottom of harbour for three months BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS CHARLESTON, S.C. — A California winery on Tuesday recovered four cases of Cabernet Sauvignon that were submerged in Charleston Harbor three months ago in the first phase of an experiment to determine the effect of ocean aging on wine. Divers recovered four yellow steel cages containing the wine that was put in 60 feet of water back in February by the Mira Winery of St. Helena, Calif. Jim “Bear” Dyke Jr., the Charleston resident who owns the winery, says the wine will now be sampled and chemically analyzed. Later this year, he said, more wine will be submerged in the harbour for twice as long as the winery continues to experiment with ocean aging. Wine has been aged in the ocean before by wineries both in Europe and on the West Coast. Mira wants to do a systematic analysis of the effects of such aging, Dyke said. “There is no better place than in Charleston to make history and that is what we have done today,” he said. “Charleston is known as a food and wine destination for its innovation and we believe our southern roots and Napa grapes are adding another chapter
to this story.” Winemakers have long known that wine recovered from sunken ships has a unique taste. The ocean is thought to have something to do with that. “There are definite differences in temperature and pressure, motion and light that we don’t see on land,” said Gustavo Gonzalez, the winemaker for Mira Winery. Part of the initial experiment was to test the steel cages to make sure they would survive being in the ocean and also to protect the wine, he said. In the second phase, wine will be put into the water right at the beginning of the aging process. The wine that was submerged in February had already been aged for some time on land. “The idea is to have an even better comparison with wine that has never seen shore aging and has only had water aging,” he said. The winery bottles its wine in August and September. The next batch of ocean-aged wine will be submerged as soon as it is bottled and will likely remain in the harbour until May or June of 2014, he said. Gonzalez said he’s hopeful that the average wine drinker, not just the connoisseur, will be able to tell the difference in ocean-aged wine.

Doctors save boy by laser-printing an airway tube so he can breathe BY MARILYNN MARCHIONE THE ASSOCIATED PRESS In a medical first, doctors used plastic particles and a 3-D laser printer to create an airway splint to save the life of a baby boy who used to stop breathing nearly every day. It’s the latest advance from the booming field of regenerative medicine, making body parts in the lab. In the case of Kaiba (KEYE’-buh) Gionfriddo, doctors didn’t have a moment to spare. Because of a birth defect, the little Ohio boy’s airway kept collapsing, causing his breathing to stop and often his heart, too. Doctors in Michigan had been researching artificial airway splints but had not implanted one in a patient yet. In a single day, they “printed out” 100 tiny tubes, using computer-guided lasers to stack and fuse thin layers of plastic instead of paper and ink to form various shapes and sizes. The next day, with special permission from the Food and Drug Administration, they implanted one of these tubes in Kaiba, the first time this has been done. Suddenly, a baby that doctors had said would probably not leave the hospital alive could breathe normally for the first time. He was 3 months old when the operation was done last year and is nearly 19 months old now. He is about to have his tracheotomy tube removed; it was placed when he was a couple months old and needed a breathing machine.
And he has not had a single breathing crisis since coming home a year ago. “He’s a pretty healthy kid right now,” said Dr. Glenn Green, a pediatric ear, nose and throat specialist at C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital of the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, where the operation was done. It’s described in Thursday’s New England Journal of Medicine. Independent experts praised the work and the potential for 3-D printing to create more body parts to solve unmet medical needs. “It’s the wave of the future,” said Dr. Robert Weatherly, a pediatric specialist at the University of Missouri in Kansas City. “I’m impressed by what they were able to accomplish.” So far, only a few adults have had trachea, or windpipe transplants, usually to replace ones destroyed by cancer. The windpipes came from dead donors or were lab-made, sometimes using stem cells. Last month, a 2-year-old girl born without a windpipe received one grown from her own stem cells onto a plastic scaffold at a hospital in Peoria, Ill. Kaiba had a different problem — an incompletely formed bronchus, one of the two airways that branch off the windpipe like pant legs to the lungs. About 2,000 babies are born with such defects each year in the United States and most outgrow them by age 2 or 3, as more tissue develops. In severe cases, parents learn of the defect when the child suddenly stops breathing and dies. That almost happened when Kaiba

Kaiba Gionfriddo plays with the family’s dog, Bandit, outside his Youngstown, Ohio, home. Born with a birth defect that caused him to stop breathing every day, he can now breathe normally, with a first-of-a-kind biodegradable airway made by Michigan doctors using plastic particles and a 3-D laser printer. was six weeks old at a restaurant with his parents, April and Bryan Gionfriddo, who live in Youngstown, in northeast Ohio. “He turned blue and stopped breathing on us,” and his father did CPR to revive him, April Gionfriddo said. More episodes followed, and Kaiba had to go on a breathing machine when he was two months old. Doctors told the couple his condition was grave. “Quite a few of them said he had a good chance of not leaving the hospital alive. It was pretty scary,” his mother said. “We pretty much prayed every night, hoping that he would pull through.” Then a doctor at Akron Children’s Hospital, Marc Nelson, suggested the
experimental work in Michigan. Researchers there were testing airway splints made from biodegradable polyester that is sometimes used to repair bone and cartilage. Kaiba had the operation on Feb. 9, 2012. The splint was placed around his defective bronchus, which was stitched to the splint to keep it from collapsing. The splint has a slit along its length so it can expand and grow as the child does — something a permanent, artificial implant could not do. The plastic is designed to degrade and gradually be absorbed by the body over three years, as healthy tissue forms to replace it, said the biomedical engineer who led the work, Scott Hollister.

America’s record-low teen birth rate stems from robust declines in nearly every state, but most dramatically in several Mountain States and among Hispanics, according to a new government report. All states but West Virginia and North Dakota showed significant drops over five years. But the Mountain States of Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Nevada and Utah saw rates fall by 30 per cent or more. In 22 states, teen Hispanic birth rates plunged at least 40 per cent, which was described as “just amazing,” by the report’s lead author, Brady Hamilton of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. What’s driving the declines? No one can say for sure. Experts believe the explanation is complicated and probably varies a bit from state to state. The national figure has been falling since 1991, aside from a brief interruption in 2006 and 2007. The CDC report is based on birth certificates for 2007 through 2011. Last year, the CDC announced the overall improvement in teen births: a record low of 31 births per 1,000 teens ages 15 to 19. That compares to 42 births per 1,000 five years earlier. The new report focuses on state figures in 2011: ● Lowest rates are in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Vermont, each with rates under 17 per 1,000. ● Highest rates overall continue to be in the South, led by Arkansas and Mississippi, each with rates of about 50 per 1,000. In Arkansas, the majority of teen births are to white moms. In Mississippi, the majority are black. ● White teens continue to have the lowest birth rate nationally — about 22 births per 1,000. Black teens saw a larger improvement, but their rate was still more than twice the white rate, at 47 per 1,000. ● Overall, the Hispanic rate plummeted from 75 to 49 per 1,000, now virtually a tie with the black rate. The teen drop in the last five years coincided with an overall decline in births.

Following this, he moved to Red Deer and worked with the Alberta Research Council Hail Project, and later with the City of Red Deer until he retired, at age 70. Harold loved spending time around the house and yard with his family and was a loving husband, father and friend. He rode his bike and walked daily well into his mid 70’s and occasionally worked with the core of Commissionaires after retirement. He was a handyman, able mechanic and skilled artist. Harold had a lifelong love of hockey, playing recreational, commercial and no-hit hockey for almost 50 years and in his 20’s was recruited by the NHL Detroit farm team. Harold struggled with Parkinson-plus syndrome over the past 2 years. We thank the nurses and doctors at palliative care and the Red Deer hospital for their care and compassion and to home care for their assistance during the last months. Harold is being cremated, followed by a private family service. We will have a remembrance and celebration of Harold’s life later this summer. Condolences and visits by friends are welcome at the family home.

There were many more campfires and fishing trips, holidays and visits, gardening and woodworking projects to enjoy. You were the type of friend and neighbor that few have the honor to know in their lives and we all feel blessed to have had you as part of ours. We will miss your warm greetings, childlike enthusiasm, unselfish helping hands, and the small gifts you brought that added a little special to an ordinary day. You spoke highly of all your friends and neighbors, and you touched the hearts of us all. Without close family by your side we all felt for you. Your dogs, BJ, Scooter and Elmo, brought cheer to your days and they were the only family you had in these recent years. You loved them so much and they loved you in return. They were your “boys”! Now you return to rest with your parents, Evelene (Ev) and Albert (Bert) (Amer’s Radiator Ltd.), and your “boys” at your side. Bob we are the ones you loved and left behind but we are all here to take care of your wishes now that you have left this world. We will do right by you Bob. You left your footprint on this world and we will remember you always and miss you dearly for the rest of our lives.

Police and forensic officers search the scene of a terror attack in Woolwich, southeast London, Thursday. The British government’s emergency committee met Thursday after two attackers killed a man in a daylight attack in London that raised fears terrorism had returned to the English capital.
Muslim hard-liners ID suspect of London terror slaying BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LONDON — A man seen with bloody hands wielding a butcher knife after the killing of a British soldier on the streets of London was described as a convert to Islam who took part in demonstrations with a banned radical group, two Muslim hard-liners said Thursday. Police raided houses in connection with the brazen slaying of the off-duty soldier, identified as Lee Rigby, of the 2nd Battalion The Royal Regiment of Fusiliers, who served in Afghanistan. In addition to the two suspects who were hospitalized after being shot by police, authorities said they had arrested a man and a woman, both 29, on suspicion of conspiracy to murder. Police would not say whether it appeared Rigby had been targeted specifically because of his military service. Although he was not in uniform at the time he was killed, he was said by witnesses to be wearing a T-shirt for a British veterans’ charity. Authorities have not identified either of the two wounded suspects and have not said when they would do so. Officials in Britain usually wait to name suspects until charges have been filed. Anjem Choudary, the former head of the radical group al-Muhajiroun, told The Associated Press that the man depicted in startling video that emerged after Rigby’s death was named Michael Adebolajo, a Christian who converted to Islam around 2003 and took part in several demonstrations by the group in London. The BBC broadcast video from 2007 showing Adebolajo standing near Choudary at a rally. Omar Bakri Muhammad, who now lives in Lebanon but had been a radical Muslim preacher in London, also said he recognized the man seen on TV as Adebolajo and said he attended his London lectures in the early 2000s. Bakri, speaking from Lebanon, said he remembers Adebolajo as a “shy person” who was keen to learn about Islam and asked interesting questions. “He used to listen more than he spoke,” Bakri said. “I was very surprised to learn that he is the suspect in the attack.” Mary Warder, who has lived in the Woolwich area for more than 30 years, told the AP said she had seen both of the suspects preaching on the streets. Shopkeepers, however, said they couldn’t remember seeing them. The two men suspected of killing the 25-yearold Rigby had been part of previous investigations by security services, a British official said Thursday, as investigators searched several locations and tried to determine whether the men were part of a wider terrorist plot. There also was no clear indication on when or where the suspects may have been radicalized. Rigby, the father of a 2-year-old boy, was slain Wednesday afternoon outside the Royal Artillery Barracks in the Woolwich area of south London while horrified bystanders watched in the busy city known for its decorum. The bizarre scene was recorded on witnesses’ cellphones, with one of the two suspects boasting of their exploits and warning of more violence as the soldier lay on the ground. Holding bloody knives and a meat cleaver, they waited for the arrival of police, who shot them in the legs, according to a passerby who tried to save the dying soldier. A British government official said one of the two men tried to go to Somalia to train or fight with the terror group al-Shabab. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak about the police investigation, would not say if the suspect had been arrested or whether he had made any other trips to the country. Citing unidentified sources described as having “knowledge of British jihadis,” the BBC’s “Newsnight” program reported that one of the suspects in the attack was arrested last year on his way to joining al-Shabab. Prime Minister David Cameron vowed that Britain would not be cowed by the horrific bloodshed, and that it would reject “the poisonous narrative of extremism on which this violence feeds.” In Washington, President Barack Obama said the U.S. “stands resolute with the United Kingdom” in the fight against violent extremism. There were few signs of alarm on the streets of London, which has been hit by terrorist attacks during a long confrontation with the Irish Republican Army and more recently, in July 2005, by al-Qaida-inspired suicide bombings that killed 52 commuters. “It’s hateful, it’s horrific and upsetting. But it doesn’t seem to have made much of a difference,” Christian White, 43, said at King’s Cross station, close to the site of one of the 2005 bombings. “Londoners are used to living in a city where life is complicated.” Even so, security was increased at military
barracks and installations in the capital, with extra armed guards added in many cases. Police said extra patrols were added at sensitive areas, including places of worship, transport hubs and congested areas. Both of the hospitalized suspects had been part of previous terrorism investigations by Britain’s security services, according to a British official who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak about the police inquiry and cautioned that details could jeopardize future trials. It was unclear how recent the investigations were, whether the men were loosely tied to other suspects being investigated, or whether they themselves had been put under surveillance, which could have included being watched by undercover investigators or having their phone calls and emails intercepted. Dramatic video showed a black man — animated, hands stained with blood and holding a meat cleaver — criticizing the British government and the presence of U.K. troops in foreign lands. Maajid Nawaz, a former Islamist now with the London-based Quilliam anti-extremism thinktank in London, said the video and emerging details indicated the men had been inspired by al-Qaida even though they may not have been directed by any specific affiliate to attack the soldier. “There is always mood music playing before these attacks happen,” Nawaz told the AP. “In this instance, I’m not saying they are operationally linked to al-Qaida, but these men clearly felt an affinity to this global jihadist zeitgeist. And they wouldn’t have had to have visited any foreign countries for this ideology to have resonated with them.” Security officials have been worried over the recent increase of men seeking training and fighting opportunities in countries such as Syria, Somalia and Yemen. Dozens of British men and women are said to have been radicalized by U.S.-born militant cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, the militant leader who was killed in a 2011 U.S. drone strike in Yemen. A Twitter account used by members of Somalia’s al-Shabab militant group made a lengthy post Thursday about the attack in Woolwich. The Twitter account referenced the video in which the bloodied suspect called the attack “an eye for an eye.” The tweet said the British army had a “woeful record of abuses” against Muslims worldwide. “We swear by almighty Allah we will never stop fighting you,” the man in the video declared, complaining about British troops fighting Muslims. “We must fight them as they fight us.” The camera then panned away to show a body lying on the ground. This video, with its venomous threats, may provide the lasting image of the tragedy. Police in the eastern England county of Lincolnshire said a property was searched in connection to the Woolwich attack. Police said a search warrant had been obtained but would not provide details. Police were also scouring the attack site for further clues. There also was a police raid on a public housing complex in east Greenwich just outside of London thought to be related to the investigation. One man was arrested Wednesday outside a mosque in Essex after he threw a smoke bomb, police said. He was also found to be carrying knives and is expected in court Friday. No one was injured. Separately, police in Kent said they charged a 45-year-old man with religiously aggravated criminal damage and burglary. The man, Andrew John Grindlay, was arrested Wednesday night. There were no incidents reported at London mosques. Police called for calm and said there were 1,200 officers deployed on the streets. Britain’s security threat remained the same since the killing, but security officials said they were reviewing preparations for the June 1718 Group of Eight summit in Northern Ireland. Obama and other world leaders are expected to attend. Police defended the speed of the department’s response to the Woolwich attack. Assistant Commissioner Simon Byrne said police were on the scene nine minutes after receiving the first emergency call. Once it became clear that guns were involved, firearms officers were called and arrived 14 minutes after the first call to police, he said. The Ministry of Defence said Rigby, who joined the army in 2006, was a machine-gunner posted in Cyprus, Afghanistan and Germany before becoming a recruiter who assisted with duties in the Tower of London. Nicknamed “Riggers,” he was an important member of the Corps of Drums who was known for his good nature and wit, and his love of his hometown soccer team, Manchester United, according to fellow soldiers.
