Way of life under siege BY PAUL COWLEY ADVOCATE STAFF


When Michael and Marion McLetchie look out from their rural Innisfail home now they see hundreds of acres of prime and pictur-

esque farmland. But not for long, the couple says. Saskatoon-based Federated Co-operatives Ltd. has been granted permission to build a fuel depot that will see

20 tanks, each 10 metres high, sprout on a farm field a few hundred metres west of the McLetchies, just north of Innisfail. That prospect is bad enough, but

Marion has little doubt it won’t be the end of the industrialization of the site. “It’s going to mushroom into a huge gigantic thing eventually,” she said in a recent interview.

Marcus (left) and Robert Ornella act out a vignette representing the 1970s in Sylvan Lake as part of the town’s centennial celebrations on Saturday.

Alexander Loiselle was not quite sure what to make of Sylvan Lake 100 years on. As Loiselle — or at least John Treleaven, in his act as the town’s first permanent settler — told the attendees of the Sylvan Lake centennial jubilee ceremony on Saturday, a lot has changed since he first made his way to the area in 1899 from Quebec via Michigan. There are now eight schools, he exclaimed, “and they teach French!” And, oh, he said, the town’s traffic is so constant, so fast — “Main Street could never be used as a tobogganing hill as it used to be.” But despite his incredulity towards skateboarding and all the other examples of modernity in the growing town, Loiselle could still hold on to the town’s central attraction. “The burnished trail of a sunset across the water. The sudden dark ferocity of a summer storm. The reflection of autumn leaves burning the water into liquid gold, and the sharp crystalline beauty of winter ice . . . Beneath all of its unfamiliarity, the heart of my 1913 lake still beats.” The act, performed by Treleaven, was one of 10 vignettes written by Judy Hinshaw for the celebratory event. The vignettes — one for each decade of the town’s history — featured actors reminiscing about the old boat house, Varsity Hall, and the old grain elevator, while talking about what was new and exciting in the town during each period. The vignettes and performances by the H.J. Cody concert band interspersed a chronological look at Sylvan Lake’s history by Michael Dawe. The historical look back ended with a look forward for the community that now numbers over 13,000 inhabitants, 70 per cent of whom are under the age of 44.

REPORT: Milestones

COUNTY: Similar concerns over biofuel proposal The McLetchies and other residents believe the county should have done an area structure plan for the whole area before approving industrial developments piecemeal. Similar arguments were raised a few years ago when a giant biofuels plant was proposed for land not far away on the west side of Hwy 2A. Their concerns also went unanswered then too, they say. The biofuels project eventually fell victim to the recession and didn’t go ahead. Steve Turner, who lives even closer to the proposed bulk fuel depot, had planned to retire on his land. “I was told they’ll never build anything across from me, that it’s straight agriculture,” he said. Turner said his and neighbours’ property values will take a hit when the storage facility is built. Who is going to compensate them, he asks. Nearby residents also have no idea what else is planned for the 120-acre site and how big the Federated Co-op complex might get. Dust, traffic and what would happen if there is a fire are other concerns at a facility storing up to 2.9 million litres of farm fuel. Turner said there is no need to build the facility so far from Innisfail, where industrial-zoned land is located adjacent. Federated could even move the tank farm elsewhere on the site, which would put it farther from local residents. “I don’t understand why they have to put it so close to a residential area,” agreed Len Hopkins, who lives with his wife near the site. “It strikes me as a little bit of a lack of foresight in Red Deer County planning.” Richard Wagers was born and raised in the area and feels the county is dropping its responsibility to preserve agricultural land. “That’s my concern, that we’re moving into not just industrial, but a town setting.



Montreal kosher restaurants firebombed BY THE CANADIAN PRESS MONTREAL — A kosher restaurant in Montreal has been the target of a firebombing for the second time in three nights. Police say there were about 30 people in Chops Resto Bar shortly after

“They should be looking after the county as a rural area. It’s just an assault on the land.” Why, residents ask, approve an industrial land use so far from Innisfail. Build out from the town, not the other way around, they argue. Coun. Philip Massier, was among five council members who voted in favour of Federated’s rezoning from agricultural to medium industrial and area structure plan changes. Massier said the area was already deemed future industrial land in the intermunicipal development plan. “So we felt it was going to be an industrial site into the future, here was the first one in and away we go,” said Massier. There are also benefits to the agricultural community to having a fuel depot there. Massier said he understands why residents would prefer to see development start at the town and move outward. “In a perfect world, I guess that’s how it might occur too, but that’s not how they chose to develop. “It’s hard for us to tell people where to develop. It’s their land, they kind of choose what pieces get developed first. Massier said the county intends to create a full plan for the area and it is moving up the priority list. Mike Thompson, petroleum development co-ordinator for Federated, told council during the public hearing about three to eight delivery trucks will visit the site per week. An emergency management plan will be created and the site will meet or exceed all regulations. The company has offered similar sites for 30 years without incidents, he said. Thompson could not be reached for further comment. Residents are hoping to appeal to county councillors to change their mind on the project, which was approved on May 7. Federated Co-op’s project meets county plans including its Municipal Development Plan and an Intermunicipal Development Plan with Innisfail, which designates the area for future indus-

Police scaled back their search in late May due to poor weather, prompting Srawn’s family to offer first $15,000, then $50,000 to anyone who “rescues or recovers” him. Dr. Tej Sahota, whose wife is Srawn’s cousin, says the reward has now been increased to $100,000. The official search for the 25-yearold Canadian military reservist from Brampton, Ont., wound up last weekend. Officials have said the chances of finding Srawn alive have decreased but his family has said it won’t give up its efforts.

The county’s planning department determined the tank farm is suitable and “will not negatively impact adjacent land uses.” Since the project was approved by council as a direct control district, it cannot be appealed to the subdivision and development appeal board. “We’re looking at the possibility of whether we can legally challenge what they’ve done,” said McLetchie.

Saturday. The storm dumped at least 60 millimetres of rain in many parts of the Maritime provinces and was blamed for knocking out power to thousands of customers. New Brunswick’s Grand Manan Island reported more than 90 millimetres. The centre says Andrea is not expected to have any more impact over land, though marine gale warnings remain in effect for waters southeast of Newfoundland.

Vince Mulhall makes a slow low pass with his Sig Kadet LT-490 trainer model airplane at the Bawtinheimer Airfield on Sunday.

Plane truth: flying models fun BY MYLES FISH ADVOCATE STAFF Bob Sharpe is quick to correct Rob McCoy when he suggests that Sharpe’s wife “thinks” McCoy created a monster in her husband. “No, she knows you created a monster,” he says with a laugh. For it was five years ago that Sharpe walked into McCoy’s machine shop and told him “you can laugh your ass off if you want, but I’ve always wanted to fly remote-controlled airplanes.” Unbeknownst to Sharpe, McCoy was already something of a fanatic when it comes to model airplanes. “So he got me started and now I have 40 of them,” explained Sharpe while out at Bawtinheimer Airfield southeast of Red Deer. The two men are among the 50 members of the Central Alberta Radio Fun Flyers, a group of enthusiasts for whom owning a few dozen model planes might be closer to the norm than an oddity. The group was founded in 1976 with six members, once had a disgruntled member burn down the


clubhouse, and has adversaries in a few neighbours near the flying field who are no fan of the relatively low din the planes emit. But McCoy, the club’s president, says it is a pleasant pastime that is easily accessible to all. He initially wanted to become a pilot, but found model airplanes to be the next best thing. “I’ve always been interested in planes, and I could never afford to get my pilot’s licence. Back in the day when I first started talking about it, I was making $435 gross a month. It cost $40 to fly a plane for an hour, and they said you should do 10 hours a month,” said McCoy. And though he has now spent thousands on his “madness” for the miniature aircraft, not to mention the 200-some hours he spent assembling

one of his planes — an antic he festooned with musical notes and a picture of his beloved mandolin — he said it need not be an expensive pursuit. It is an opinion shared by Will Gross, a national champion last year in model airplaning. “It’s probably one of the cheapest hobbies out there . . . For $500, you can have a really nice airplane that’s going to give you a lot of satisfaction, a lot of fun,” said Gross. It can be cheaper too. Gross has started his son, at five years old, on an $80 machine. Gross got involved in the sport nine years ago, and is now up to doing 1,100 flights per year. While the plane he uses for precision acrobatics costs around $7,000, he has earned himself sponsorships and this year will travel

to Johannesburg, South Africa for the world championships. Though he does many difficult advanced manoeuvres such as a rolling circle or an equilateral triangle with his busy thumbs, he says he hasn’t crashed a plane in over four years. “Most people have the idea that model planes are these little things that you just whip around, and then they see a big plane doing passes so low and how powerful the engines are. People get really excited about those things,” explained Gross. The public will have its chance to get excited about such things on June 22, as CARFF will host an airshow at the Bawtinheimer Airfield on McKenzie Road. The free show starts at 1 p.m., with introductory flights to be offered with an instructor in the morning, also for no charge. For a map to the airfield and for more information on the club, visit For further information or to join, contact McCoy at 403-3965747.

Food regulator stops investigating anthrax EDMONTON — Canada’s food regulator has stopped riding herd on anthrax, a disease that can kill cattle, bison, other grazing animals and, in rare cases, people. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency says it will no longer investigate and quarantine anthrax-infected farms, collect samples for testing, vaccinate livestock or oversee and help pay for the cost of disposing animals that die of the disease. New rules that went into effect this spring say livestock producers, with the help of private veterinarians, are expected to take responsibility for preventing and dealing with anthrax. “It is very much a business decision or a cost-benefit decision on the basis of the producer and their veterinarian,” said Dr. Penny Greenwood, national manager of domestic disease control for the CFIA. “When it is a business decision, it is really not appropriate for CFIA to be involved in the control of those diseases, as opposed to diseases that are very difficult to control.” Anthrax is caused by naturally occurring bacteria in spores in soil. The spores can become active during hot weather that follows heavy rains or flooding. Animals that ingest the spores can get sick and die very quickly. If the animal carcass isn’t disposed of properly, more spores end up in the soil. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in the U.S. says people can become infected with anthrax by handling products from infected animals, inhaling anthrax spores or eating undercooked meat from infected animals. The infectious disease can kill people, but the CFIA says human cases of anthrax are rare and usually mild.

The disease is most prevalent in Western Canada. Last summer, there were anthrax cases reported in cattle and bison in Saskatchewan. In 2011, there were cases in Manitoba. Outbreaks can be severe under certain conditions. There were more than 800 cases of anthrax in Saskatchewan in 2006 and more than 100 in Manitoba. More than 200 wild bison died of the disease in the Northwest Territories in 2012. Greenwood would not comment on whether federal budget cuts are behind the policy change. She noted that there have been fewer cases of anthrax recently and the disease is preventable with a readily available vaccine. “When we look at a disease such as anthrax where we know we cannot eradicate it from Canada ... we felt that our efforts were better utilized in other areas such as emerging diseases or foreign animal disease,” she said from Ottawa. The federal government still requires producers to report anthrax cases. Industry groups such as the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association are spreading the word about the new policy to producers. The association advised its members last week on what to do if they suspect anthrax: immediately contact a veterinarian, move surviving livestock away from infected animals and limit wildlife scavenging the carcass. Producers are also being warned not to move a dead animal and to hire someone to pick up and dispose of the carcass. Rob McNabb, the cattlemen group’s general manager, said the beef industry will watch how the new policy unfolds. “We will continue to monitor and, if for some reason things get out of con-

trol, then I guess we will have to revisit preventing the spread of spores. it,” McNabb said from Calgary.

Mismanagement behind wait times CANADA’S HEALTH-CARE LEADERSHIP NEEDS TO START TAKING A SERIOUS LOOK IN THE MIRROR BY ROBERT GERST SPECIAL TO THE ADVOCATE Wait times in the Canadian healthcare system have been ‘manufactured’ through archaic and technically corrupt approaches to managing capacity. That’s the conclusion of Full House: Understanding and expanding capacity in health care, the feature article of the latest Six Sigma Forum, a peer reviewed journal of The American Society for Quality (ASQ). Full House demolishes the PR inspired myths that population growth (Alberta), or restructuring of services (Ontario), are why the Canadian healthcare system has been so ineffective at addressing wait times. Using the same corrupt approaches to managing capacity, Alberta, and other jurisdictions, has produced results opposite to those intended. Efforts to improve efficiency have increased costs and

reduced efficiency. The millions spent on reducing wait times has instead, reduced system capacity driving wait times skyward. Even wait time reduction recommendations made by the Health Quality Council of Alberta (HQCA) used these same archaic approaches. As a result, Full House predicted the recommendations would have no lasting effect. Alberta Health Services (AHS) new three year plan, announced last week, confirms these predictions. The new plan replaces the two year old, five year plan, and was accompanied by warnings from the Health Minister that Albertans will likely be facing longer wait times this summer. Only six months ago, the Health Ministry and AHS announced that wait times were being successfully reduced through the very same HQCA recommendations that Full House predicted wouldn’t work. While plans may change, the excuses remain the same. Once again, population growth was presented as a significant problem. But a bigger problem is the inability of AHS to do basic arithmetic. Citing a 7 per cent increase in demand in the province’s largest hospitals, AHS Chief Executive

Officer, Dr. Chris Eagle said, “I cannot provide the capacity. It’s not reasonable to provide the capacity to keep up with that.” That’s probably true, but Alberta’s population growth last year was only two per cent. That leaves five per cent, and the bulk of the demand issue, unexplained. Population growth isn’t, and never has been, the problem. Eagle appears to admit as much when he later stated; “We have to look at what’s driving those people to come to those emergency departments. Why are they not receiving care earlier in the community?” Seriously? AHS is asking this question? Well, here’s the answer. People aren’t receiving care “earlier in the community” because over the past five years the cornerstone of Alberta’s health-care efficiency strategy has been demolishing community healthcare capacity. Services have been centralized and consolidated in pursuit of economies of scale. Occupancy and utilization have been maximized in search of efficiency. These efforts had one possible and easily predictable outcome — increased costs combined with growing wait times throughout the system. The decade long effort to reduce wait times in the Canadian health-care

system now arguably represents the largest single failure in the history of Canadian public administration. Never before has blatant mismanagement wasted so much in achieving so little. People have died. None of this changes with Alberta’s new three year health-care plan. Nor is anything changing in B.C., Manitoba, Nova Scotia, or anywhere else in Canada. Everyone is doing the same thing but expecting different results. We all better buckle up. It’s going to be a bumpy ride. Hopefully soon, leaders in our health-care system will step up, look in the mirror, and see that the failure to reduce wait times lies not in our stars but in ourselves. To help them see that truth more clearly, on Friday May 31, the ASQ and Six Sigma Forum, took the unusual step of making Full House publicly available as an open source article available to all.

Proud of students and volunteers involved in heritage fairs In early May, Grades 4 to 9 students across the province presented projects on Canadian history at regional heritage fairs. The last weekend in May, one student from each of the five regional fairs represented their area at the annual Historical Society of Alberta annual general meeting and banquet. Student projects presented to the Historical Society of Alberta were: the history of curling, Chinese Canadian immigration to Western Canada; the life and work of Sir Frederick Banting; Black History in Alberta; and Dye Farms. The five students who researched, created and presented these projects were amazing representatives who show us all that there is a passion among the young to learn about Canadian history and that there are great stories to share. Thanks to the parents, teachers, organizers and volunteers behind the five regional fairs. Thank you also to the thousands of students from across the province who participated in the fairs at the school, regional and provincial levels. Thank you for showing us that history is being taught in our schools and thank you for showing us that the many youth do appreciate and understand our history. I encourage more schools and people from across the province to get involved in next year’s Heritage Fair. Five regional fairs are held in Calgary, Edmonton, Grande Prairie/ Peace River, Lethbridge and Red Deer each year. Belinda Crowson President The Historical Society of Alberta

Big Move. It’s also looking at new financing tools to ensure funding levels are adequate and continue into the future. But before we spend enormous amounts on improvements, we need to ensure projects contribute to a region-wide rapid transit network using the latest technology and adhering to the highest sustainability standards. They should also move the most people in the most cost-effective way. That’s why a proposal to use diesel trains for the Air-Rail-Link plan to connect downtown Toronto with its international airport in Mississauga is concerning. A rapid transit link with the airport is long overdue, but heavy diesel trains emit particulates and other contaminants, including known carcinogens. The proposed rail line would be close to dozens of schools and daycare centres, several long-term care facilities and a chronic respiratory care hospital. Numerous experts, including Toronto’s Medical Health Officer, have urged the Ontario government to abandon its diesel plan in favour of electric trains that could be better integrated into a region-wide rapid transit network. Vancouver, San Francisco, Portland, Seattle and New York City have consistently ranked among the most livable cities on the continent, in part because they take the environment into account for planning decisions. They all have world-class public transit systems that move residents in a safe, affordable and sustainable way. It’s time for Toronto and its suburbs to do the same. Effective transit and transportation solutions can spur economic productivity, protect the environment and improve quality of life.

Restrictions on alleged terrorist eased HARKAT CAN HAVE MOBILE PHONE, TRACKING BRACELET STAYS: FEDS BY THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA — The federal government says it will allow an Ottawa man accused of terrorist ties to have a mobile phone but balks at the idea of giving Mohamed Harkat access to the Internet or removing his electronic tracking bracelet. In documents filed with the Federal Court, the government says it is also open to dropping a requirement that Harkat get prior approval before travelling out of town. The concessions would ease current release conditions for Harkat, but fall short of the full list of freedoms he will seek Tuesday during a one-day Federal Court hearing. It has been more than a decade since Harkat, a refugee from Algeria, was arrested under a national security certificate on suspicion of being an al-Qaida sleeper agent. He has essentially been living under house arrest with stringent conditions for seven years. Harkat, 44, lives at home in Ottawa with wife Sophie, but wears an electronic GPS bracelet on his ankle, must


Mohamed Harkat pauses during a press conference on Parliament Hill marking the 10th anniversary of his arrest and detention on a security certificate, Monday, Dec. 10, 2012 in Ottawa. check in with authorities regularly and cannot leave the capital area without permission. He is denied access to a mobile phone or a computer with Internet connectivity. “I feel dehumanized and degraded on a daily basis,” Harkat says in an affidavit in support of his request for less

onerous conditions. “The GPS ankle bracelet I am required to wear is a constant reminder of this.” Harkat denies any involvement in terrorist activities. He says his decade-long ordeal has taken a toll, and that he’s been treated by a psychiatrist for anxiety, depression, post-

traumatic stress disorder and insomnia for the last three years. “I feel that much of my psychological difficulties are a result of the extremely restrictive conditions under which I live,” he says in the affidavit. Harkat’s psychiatrist, Dr. Colin Cameron, says his patient takes four medications — two of which have had to be increased a number of times over the last three years — to manage his “significant depressive, post-traumatic stress and anxiety symptoms.” In a brief to the court, Harkat’s lawyers call the current release conditions “harsh and excessive.” Harkat argues his current lack of access to the Internet prevents him from emailing family members, the Justice for Mohamed Harkat Committee, legal counsel or even the Canada Border Services Agency, which monitors his daily movements and approves or denies travel requests. In addition, he says, he “feels uneasy” about not having a mobile phone in the event of an emergency when away from home — noting his

wife suffers from diabetes and his nephew has allergies that require him to carry an epipen. In its court submission, the government says the conditions imposed on Harkat — including GPS monitoring and the prohibition on Internet access — are proportional to the danger. Security certificates have been used since 1991 to deport non-citizens accused of being terrorists or spies. The person named in a certificate receives only a summary of the case against them, which critics say makes for a mockery of fundamental justice. Harkat’s case has been bound up in legal proceedings since the former pizza delivery man’s arrest on Dec. 10, 2002. In October, the Supreme Court of Canada will hear a challenge of the security certificate system brought by Harkat and his lawyers. The hearing will come more than five years after the Conservative government revamped the certificate regime in an effort to make it consistent with the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

State-snooping scandal prompts warning JOURNALISTS NEED TO PROTECT SOURCES BETTER BY THE CANADIAN PRESS MONTREAL — A scandal over state snooping on journalists in the United States is prompting media-watchers to consider new techniques to protect sources. Anonymity of sources is considered sacrosanct among journalists and essential to their safety, reputation, and ability to act as public whistleblowers. But journalists are lagging behind when it comes to protecting sources in the digital era, critics say. “There is a general lack of awareness (among journalists) about what ubiquitous surveillance looks like,” said Jonathan Stray, who teaches computational journalism at Columbia University. Everything from the websites you visit, the calls you make, and even your phone location, are logged somewhere, Stray said. The same applies to reporters. “That affects the type of stories (journalists) can do,” he said. In 2011, Christopher Soghoian, who

works for the American Civil Liberties Union, wrote an article in the New York Times titled, “When secrets aren’t safe with journalists.” It urged reporters to take new steps to protect sources and information. Two years later, he paints a rather dark picture of the situation. The Associated Press revealed last month that the U.S. Department of Justice seized some of its phone records, as part of an investigation to identify one of its sources. A Fox News Reporter has also been investigated after publishing a 2009 article about North Korea, and quoting a source within the Obama administration. “Nothing has really changed,” Soghoian said. Journalists on sensitive beats — like national security — are targeted more than others, he said. And those particular reporters aren’t necessarily the most adept with new information-security technology, like email encryption. “Generally it’s the older journalists who’ve spent years building sources. It takes a while for these folks to learn about these new technologies,” Soghoian said. Few organizations and even fewer journalism schools offer training in that area.

=Journalists need to use the concept of threat-modeling, Stray said. That begins with asking some questions. “Every time I communicate with somebody, that information is recorded,” said Stray. “Who has access to it? How? Is that a threat to my work?... “You don’t know what tools you need until you figure out what problems you’re trying to solve.” Danny O’Brien, the Electronic Frontier Foundation’s international director, echoed Stray’s opinion. “You have to teach your sources about this as well,” he said. “In the case of whistleblowers, those people aren’t aware of the protection they can take.” Whistleblowers are at particular risk. About a week ago, The New Yorker unveiled Strongbox — a secure way for people to leak confidential information to them. Files sent through Strongbox are encrypted and only two reporters from the magazine have access to the files leaked. The system was intentionally designed so that, even in the event of a court order, it would be almost impossible to track down a leak.

The New Yorker is one of the only media outlets using such a system for now. “News organizations are going to have to spend some money, both to set these kinds of systems up and more importantly to train their journalists to securely handle the materials once you have them,” Soghoian said. There still is a lot of work to be done but there is hope, O’Brien says. “It’s getting slowly better, journalists realize they’re targeted in this way,” he said. “There are definitely protections journalists can take to protect themselves from surveillance online.” Unlike in some states in the U.S., journalists in Canada don’t enjoy any special legal rights when it comes to their sources. “A journalist a has no more legal protection to protect someone’s identity than any other member of the general public,” said Hugo Rodrigues, president of the Canadian Association of Journalists. The Supreme Court ruled in 2010 that journalists don’t have a constitutional right to protect their sources, following a case involving a National Post reporter who covered the Shawinigate scandal.

‘The Michaels’ reflect on decade of progress SAME-SEX MARRIAGE

TORONTO — Ten years ago, their unprecedented wedding stood for hope, equality and inclusion. A decade later, Michael Leshner and Michael Stark — Canada’s first legally married same-sex couple — believe the battle to have their union recognized by the courts has made it easier for today’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Canadians to feel accepted. “We were, I think, the last major group that in the public imagination was very discriminated against,” said Leshner. “Once you have marriage you have full equality. That was won that day.” Nicknamed “the Michaels,” the pair’s quick civil ceremony in Toronto came just hours after Ontario’s Court of Appeal pronounced the Canadian law on traditional marriage unconstitutional on June 10, 2003. While Ontario was the first to legally recognize same-sex marriage, many other provinces followed soon after. Two years later, the federal government legalized same-sex marriage countrywide with the gender-neutral Civil Marriage Act.

“The marriage case drove the stake through the heart of legalized homophobia,” said Leshner, who at 65, is the older of the couple that’s been together for a total of 32 years. “There’s so much to be thankful for but still so much to be very worried about ... we have to be very mindful that in parts of the world gays and lesbians are being seriously physical harmed or worse.” The significance of gaining equality in the eyes of Canadian law hasn’t been forgotten by those who fought for their right to wed. Robin Roberts — who was among eight couples in British Columbia to win the right to marry a month after the Ontario ruling — was reminded of the importance of her legal battle during a recent conversation with a young stranger. “He had not known that there was a time in Canada when same-sex marriage was not legal,” said the 65-yearold Victoria resident. “I think it’s really significant because it just levels the playing field — if you want to get married you have that option.”

Having that choice legally available to same-sex couples did much to help estranged families, added Roberts, explaining that her wife rebuilt relationships with her siblings once their union was recognized by the courts. “Her two only brothers had not spoken to us for 20 years. The day after it became legal, her younger brother phoned and said congratulations then he proceeded to ask her all the questions he should have asked 20 years earlier,” Roberts explained. “This is why we did it — to help families accept each other. It seemed astounding to us that legal marriage could make a difference.” For Jane Eaton Hamilton, also a litigant in the B.C. case, the legalization of same-sex marriage laid the foundation for social acceptance of LGBT youth. “The anti-bullying movement has been in direct result from the samesex marriage push and the increased visibility of queers,” said the 58-yearold, who remains a strong supporter of same-sex marriage despite her own divorce two-and-a-half years ago. “Canadians generally are far more accepting of the LGBT community.”

The federal minister of aboriginal affairs says he understands quite well why First Nations youth are rebelling, but says that as he travels the country to speak to aboriginal communities, he senses far more consensus with federal policies than confrontation. Bernard Valcourt says it’s no wonder there is frustration among aboriginal young people as they cope with overcrowding, poor health, high unemployment, violence and high rates of incarceration. “My sense is that the impatience we smell out there, it comes mainly from these young aboriginals, who I feel and I sense are getting frustrated at the little progress they see, themselves,” Valcourt said in an interview in his Parliament Hill office. “They look at their family in terms of their brothers and sisters and parents; they don’t see much change in certain areas.” Valcourt says his government has demonstrated a willingness to find practical solutions, starting with education — a priority most First Nations leaders agree with. “What is the most fundamental, substantial, substantive approach that will correct and contribute to changing the situation if not education?” Valcourt asked rhetorically. “This was an idea that was promoted by the leadership of the aboriginal leaders in the country.” Valcourt was named minister — what he called a “daunting challenge” — in the aftermath of the Idle-No-More protests and liquids-only hunger protest of Attawapiskat Chief Theresa Spence last winter. Activists are gearing up for more demonstrations and blockades in the next few months, already deep into plan-

ning a “solidarity summer” that would include urban protests as well as direct action on First Nations lands. Valcourt says he recognizes the right to demonstrate and speak out, but he would prefer discussions to find solutions instead. “I would rather have



Despite the positives, however, there are some who think the entrenching of same-sex marriage in Canadian society has resulted in a “dumbing down” of LGBT culture and of the other kinds of relationships that can be had, said Hamilton. “Some people feel that the only good queer is a married queer and there’s a hierarchy in our relationships with that being the pinnacle,” she said. “We need a lot of work on queer acceptance, safety in schools, anti-bullying, protection against hate crimes... the same sorts of issues that we’ve always had to work on.” While there’s no doubt there’s still room for improvement when it comes to same-sex issues and acceptance, there are many who see Canada as an international leader in the field. “You only have to look at how much longer it’s taking other major democracies to take the same steps to realize how on the cutting edge Canada has been on this issue,” said Kathleen Lahey, a law professor at Queen’s University. “The courts have helped make it clear that these are matters of fundamental human rights and I think it has helped improve the level of social acceptance in Canada.”

Chicago Blackhawks right wing Patrick Kane celebrates his game-winning goal with center Andrew Shaw during the second overtime period in Game 5 of the NHL Stanley Cup playoffs Western Conference finals against the Los Angeles Kings Saturday. Photo by THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

KANE’S GOAL IN DOUBLE OVERTIME PUSHES THE BLACKHAWKS PAST L.A. AND INTO STANLEY CUP FINALS AGAINST THE BRUINS BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Blackhawks 4 Kings 3 CHICAGO — Patrick Kane skated toward the middle of the ice, dropped to his knees and pumped his right arm, surrounded by a sea of red jumping up and down in waves. The hats began to come down as the Chicago Blackhawks rushed in to celebrate another trip to the Stanley Cup finals. It was an emphatic checkmate at the end of a long night. The Los Angeles Kings’ NHL reign is over. Kane scored his third goal of the game 11:40 into the second overtime period and the Blackhawks beat the defending champion Kings 4-3 on Saturday to advance to the finals. “Right now I think it’s almost like I’m in a different zone, like in the Twilight Zone or something,” Kane said, calling it the best game of his career. “I’m kind of out of it. It’s

definitely a good feeling, though.” Corey Crawford made 33 saves, and Duncan Keith scored in his return from a onegame suspension as the top-seeded Blackhawks eliminated the Kings in five games in the Western Conference finals. Chicago will host the Eastern champion Boston Bruins in Game 1 of the best-ofseven championship series on Wednesday night. Boston completed a sweep of the Pittsburgh Penguins on Friday night. “It’s a special couple places. The tradition of the Bruins and the Hawks is special,” Chicago coach Joel Quenneville said. “I’m sure, you know, the rivalry could return instantly come Game 1. I think it’s good for the league. It’s good for hockey. Two great hockey markets. We’re very excited to be a part of it.” This is the first finals matchup of NHL Original Six franchises since 1979, and it will pit two of the last three champions

against each other. Chicago won the Cup in 2010, ending a 49-year drought. Boston captured the title the following year. “Every series presents its challenges,” forward Patrick Sharp said. “Watching Boston, they’re rolling right now. Another tough series ahead of us.” Los Angeles managed to recover after trailing 2-0 in the first period and 3-2 late in regulation in the longest game in franchise history. Mike Richards and Anze Kopitar both had a goal and an assist, and Jonathan Quick finished with 31 saves. “We got beat in the conference finals by the best team in the conference at the end of the day,” Kings coach Darryl Sutter said. “We accomplished everything. Once you set the bar up there, then that’s your bar. So obviously we’re disappointed to lose to Chicago, but we’re certainly not disappointed in how we played.” Kane was in the middle of a quiet postseason when he finished off Bryan Bickell’s shot for his third playoff goal in Chicago’s 3-2 win in Los Angeles on Thursday. The talented forward yelled in relief after that goal and came up with his best performance of the playoffs in Game 5. After Crawford made a couple of big saves in the first overtime, Jonathan Toews carried the puck up the left side during a 2-on-1 rush in the second extra session. He then made a cross-ice pass to Kane, who one-timed a shot past Quick and into the right side. “You know, the shift before, actually Jonny had the same play, and the puck fumbled on him,” Kane said. “I knew he was coming back to me. Just tried to wait for the defenceman to go by me. Tried to get it off as quick as I could in the net.” The rollicking sellout crowd of 22,237 erupted in joy as Kane started the celebration for the Blackhawks. A distraught Quick remained face down on the ice as his teammates emptied the bench for the post-series handshakes. Chicago was poised to finish off Los Angeles in regulation when the Kings scored the tying goal with 9.4 seconds remaining. Kopitar took a long shot from the right side and Richards managed to tip it by Crawford, leading to a celebration for the Kings while the crowd groaned in disbelief. “So emotional,” Kane said of the lost lead. “You start thinking about it when it goes to 14 seconds away from going to the final. It stuck with us for the first overtime. It was nice to close it out for sure.”

Krueger gets Heat axed by Oilers beat GM MACTAVISH SAYS TEAM IS CLOSE TO HIRING NEW HEAD COACH BY THE CANADIAN PRESS EDMONTON — Ralph Krueger paid the price Saturday for the Edmonton Oilers’ latest disappointing season. Krueger is out as head coach after guiding the Oilers to a 19-22-7 record this past season. Edmonton finished 12th in the Western Conference and missed the playoffs for the seventh straight year. Ralph Krueger General manager Craig MacTavish said he spent a week in discussions with Krueger about bringing on a veteran assistant coach. “During the process of me conducting those interviews, I recognized I was trying to add a coach that was more closely aligned with the way I wanted to run the team and less about supporting Ralph and the head coach of our team at the time.” Krueger spent one season as head coach after serving as an associate coach for two seasons. MacTavish, who took over as general manager this spring, said the team is “very close” to hiring a new coach. But he said the deal hasn’t been formalized, yet, and wouldn’t say who it was. The Oilers, who are loaded with top young players like Taylor Hall, Jordan Eberle, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Nail Yakupov, will have their third coach in three seasons. Some of the potential options include Lindy Ruff, Alain Vigneault, John Tortorella along with Dallas Eakins of the AHL’s Toronto Marlies. Krueger, 53, was the head coach of the Swiss national team from 1997-2010. He led the team to 12 world championship appearances and three Winter Olympics. He also previously coached VEU Feldkirch in Austria’s first division. MacTavish admitted the decision to remove Krueger would be disruptive to the Oilers, but he said his other concerns trumped any issues about continuity. “Philosophically, I differ somewhat with Ralph and it doesn’t mean my strategy is right or Ralph’s strategy is right. But I’m the general manager and it’s my job and my decision to make and that’s why I’ve made that decision,” MacTavish said. MacTavish noted that he was still interested in bringing on a new assistant coach. He also said there were more “difficult decisions” to come and that it would be a “tumultuous” summer for the club. He lauded Krueger’s commitment to the players and the Oilers organization. “I don’t think this was in any way fair to Ralph. This wasn’t about being fair to Ralph. I mean, it was a consideration in this. You always want to be as fair with your personnel and your staff as possible. ... “Ralph was unquestionably 100 per cent committed to the Edmonton Oilers. His passion and energy is amazing and we wish him nothing but the best as he moves forward in his impressive career.”

Spurs to even NBA Finals THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Heat 103 Spurs 84 MIAMI — Back with a blowout, and no, the Miami Heat didn’t need LeBron James to do more. Not when Mario Chalmers and everyone else did everything right. Chalmers led the charge, James broke out to finish it with a flurry and the Heat used a 33-5 run to blow away the San Antonio Spurs 103-84 on Sunday night to even the NBA Finals at one game apiece. James missed 10 of his first 13 shots and the Heat trailed by a point late in the third quarter before unleashing the lethal brand of basketball that led them to a franchise-record 66 wins this season. Chalmers finished with 19 points, and James had 17 points, eight rebounds and seven assists while shooting only 7 of 17 from the field. “I know my shooters only need a little bit of room to get the shot off,” James said. “For me, I struggled offensively, but the shooters made some good shots.” The Heat made 10 of 19 3-pointers and got 13 points from Ray Allen, and 12 points and 10 rebounds from the previously slumping Chris Bosh. Danny Green made all six shots, including five 3-pointers, and scored 17 points for the Spurs.


Miami Heat small forward LeBron James blocks a shot by San Antonio Spurs center Tiago Splitter during the second half of Game 2 of the NBA Finals, Sunday, in Miami. The Miami Heat won 103-84. They host Game 3 on Tuesday night. Tony Parker had 13 points on 5-of-14 shooting for the Spurs, who were so precise in their 92-88 victory in Game 1 but threw the ball all over the white-surrounded court Sunday, committing 17 turnovers that led to 19 Miami points. Tim Duncan shot 3 of 13 and finished with nine points and 11 rebounds. James insisted he wouldn’t force himself to do more after he had a triple-double in Game 1 but never seized the opportunity to take control of the scoring as the game was slipping away from the Heat. He didn’t need to. Not with Chalmers making big shots, the Heat’s defence forcing the Spurs to look shaky all over the floor, and a barrage of second-half 3-pointers. James finally got some openings late, hanging from the rim an extra second not long after a sensational blocked shot freed him up for a fast break. The often-maligned Chalmers is frequently found in Heat highlights

being yelled at by James or another Miami veteran. But he’s as cocky as any of the superstars in Miami, and he has the big-moment plays to back up his bravado, from a tying shot for Kansas in the 2008 NCAA championship game to his 25 points in Game 4 of last year’s finals. The point guard sparked the Heat late in the third, after San Antonio had taken a 62-61 lead. He converted two three-point plays, Allen and Mike Miller nailed 3-pointers, and James made only his third field goal of the game during a 14-3 finishing spurt that sent Miami to the fourth with a 75-65 advantage. They opened the fourth with nine straight points to make it 84-65, and capped the run at 94-67 when James made a 3-pointer, erasing any chance of their first twogame losing streak in five months. The Spurs had only four turnovers in Game 1, tying an NBA Finals record low. But they surpassed that total in the first quarter.

Rangers rally to beat Jays, prevent sweep BY THE CANADIAN PRESS Rangers 6 Blue Jays 4 TORONTO — The Texas Rangers used the long ball to get in the position for a comeback win on Sunday. A lack of focus from Toronto slugger Jose Bautista in a big ninth-inning situation helped them seal the victory. Nelson Cruz, David Murphy and Adrian Beltre homered as the Rangers scored six unanswered runs in a 6-4 victory over the Blue Jays at Rogers Centre. Texas (37-25) salvaged the finale of the three-game series and ended Toronto’s three-game winning streak. The Blue Jays (27-35) had the potential tying run at second base with one out in the ninth and Bautista at the plate. The Toronto slugger didn’t like a called strike by umpire Gary Darling and it appeared to rattle him for the rest of the at-bat. When Bautista struck out, he jawed with the umpire and was ejected from the game. Bautista has never been shy about voicing his displeasure with umpire calls. Manager John Gibbons said it was just one at-bat, adding he’s not concerned that his slugger might be getting a reputation. “It doesn’t help him, that’s for sure,” Gibbons said. “But it really hasn’t been a problem this year. Today it kind of blew up but look over the season, it really hasn’t been an issue. So we’ve just got to move on.” Bautista declined to speak with reporters after the game. Rangers closer Joe Nathan got Edwin Encarnacion to pop up to end the game for his 19th save of the season. “We’re going through some tough times but nobody’s going to feel sorry for us,” he said. “We have to find a way to get wins.” Toronto looked to be on its way to a series sweep after Adam Lind hit a three-run homer in the Blue Jays’ four-run third inning. But the Rangers chipped away at starter Josh Johnson and trailed by a run after five innings. Texas scored an unearned run in the sixth off reliever Juan Perez and went ahead on Beltre’s homer in the seventh off losing pitcher Neil Wagner (1-1). Murphy added a solo shot in the eighth off Dustin McGowan. Reliever Neal Cotts (2-0) worked one inning for the win. The Blue Jays had six hits on the day and did all of their scoring off Texas starter Justin Grimm. Melky Cabrera reached on a two-out walk and moved to second on an infield single by Bautista. Encarnacion’s single brought Cabrera home and set the stage for Lind, who took a 1-0 pitch deep for his sixth homer of the year. Johnson held the Rangers off the board for the


Texas Rangers Adrian Beltre (right) is congratulated by teammate David Murphy after hitting the gamewinning solo homer off Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Neil Wagner during seventh inning action in Toronto on Sunday. first three innings before Texas halved the lead in the fourth. Cruz hit a solo shot — his 15th homer of the year — and Chris McGuiness had an RBI double after a Murphy walk. Johnson got Leonys Martin to ground out with two runners on to end the rally. The Rangers made it a one-run game an inning later. A.J. Pierzynski doubled down the right-field line and moved to third on an infield single by Beltre. Pierzynski scored when Cruz singled to left. Johnson got Murphy to pop up with runners on the corners to preserve Toronto’s lead. The Jays righthander allowed five hits, three earned runs and four walks while striking out four. “He was cruising right along there and then he ripped a blister on his finger,” Gibbons said. “I don’t know how much more he had in him anyway but that didn’t help things. But he was throwing good, but they made him work, (he threw) a lot of pitches.” Johnson said the blister was on his middle finger but it didn’t burst. He expects to make his next scheduled start. Perez came on in the sixth and put runners on the

corners with one out. Texas tied the game after catcher Josh Thole threw the ball well wide of second base on Craig Gentry’s steal. That allowed Leury Garcia to trot home with an unearned run and Gentry moved to third base. Gentry later made a baserunning gaffe, which allowed Toronto to record a double play to get out of the inning. Elvis Andrus flared a ball into shallow centre field and second baseman Emilio Bonifacio made a nice over-the-shoulder catch for the second out. Gentry broke for home way too early and was doubled off. In the bottom half, Colby Rasmus hit a one-out single and Thole walked. Andy LaRoche flew out, ending Grimm’s day. Cotts came on and got pinchhitter Mark DeRosa on a strikeout. Grimm allowed five hits, four earned runs and three walks while striking out six. Wagner replaced Perez with two out in the seventh inning. Beltre greeted him to the game by hitting his 14th homer of the season.

Nadal beats Ferrer for eighth French Open championship BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS PARIS — If Rafael Nadal truly was going to be challenged, if his bid for an unprecedented eighth French Open championship would be slowed even a bit, this might have been the moment. Leading by a set and a break 70 minutes into Sunday’s final against David Ferrer, another generally indefatigable Spaniard, Nadal faced four break points in one game. The last was a 31-stroke exchange, the match’s longest, capped when Nadal absorbed Ferrer’s strong backhand approach and transformed it into a cross-court backhand passing shot. Ferrer glared at the ball as it flew past and landed in a corner, then smiled ruefully. What else was there to do? Dealing with Nadal’s defence-tooffence on red clay is a thankless task. His rain-soaked 6-3, 6-2, 6-3 victory over Ferrer on was Nadal’s record 59th win in 60 matches at the French Open and made him the only man with eight titles at any Grand Slam tournament. “I never like to compare years, but it’s true that this year means something very special for me,” Nadal said, alluding to the way he managed to come back from a left knee injury that sidelined him for about seven months. “When you have a period of time like I had,” he added, “you realize that you don’t know if you will have the chance to be back here with this trophy another time.” But he does it, year after year. He won four French Opens in a row from 2005-08, and another four in a row from 2010-13. “Rafael was better than me,” said Ferrer, who had won all 18 sets he’d played the past two weeks to reach his first Grand Slam final at age 31. “He didn’t make mistakes.” A week past his 27th birthday, Nadal now owns 12 major trophies in all — including two from Wimbledon, one each from the U.S. Open and Australian Open — to eclipse Bjorn Borg and Rod Laver and equal Roy Emerson for

the third-most in history. Nadal trails only Roger Federer’s 17 and Pete Sampras’ 14. “Winning 17 Grand Slam titles, that’s miles away,” Nadal said. “I’m not even thinking about it.” This was Nadal’s first major tournament after a surprising second-round loss at Wimbledon last June. Since rejoining the tour in February, he is 43-2 with seven titles and two runner-up finishes. He’s won his past 22 matches. “For me, it’s incredible,” said Toni Nadal, Rafael’s uncle and coach. “When I think of all that Rafael has done, I don’t understand it.” Let’s be plain: No one, perhaps not even Ferrer himself, expected Nadal to lose Sunday. That’s because of Nadal’s skill on clay, and at Roland Garros, in particular, but also because of how Ferrer had fared against his friend and countryman — and videogame competitor — in the past. Ferrer entered Sunday 4-19 against Nadal. On clay, Nadal had 16 consecutive victories over Ferrer, whose only head-to-head win on the surface came the first time they played, in July 2004, when Nadal was 18. Nadal had yet to make his French Open debut then, missing it that year because of a broken left foot. On May 23, 2005, Nadal played his first match at Roland Garros, beating Lars Burgsmuller 6-1, 7-6 (4), 6-1 on Court 1, known as the “bullring” because of its oval shape. And so began the reign. Nadal won a record 31 consecutive matches at the French Open until the fourth round in 2009, when Robin Soderling beat him. In 2010, Nadal started a new streak, which currently stands at 28. There was occasional shakiness this year. Nadal lost the first set of each of his first two matches, and was pushed to a tiebreaker to begin his third. His fourth match, a straight-set win against No. 15 Kei Nishikori, “was a major step forward,” Nadal said. Still, he barely edged No. 1-ranked Novak Djokovic in a thrilling semifinal.

Spain’s Rafael Nadal reacts after defeating compatriot David Ferrer in the men’s final match of the French Open tennis tournament at the Roland Garros stadium Sunday, in Paris. Nadal won 6-3, 6-2, 6-3.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The support of a handful of old high school buddies, the calming influence of a veteran caddie and timely putting were exactly what Harris English needed to pull out his first PGA Tour victory. English won the St. Jude Classic on Sunday, birdieing two of the final three holes to hold off Phil Mickelson and Scott Stallings by two strokes. “I had probably 10 high school friends out there today,” English said. “And I know that if I make a birdie or a bogey, they’re probably going to be the same and they’re rooting me on. I was just really relaxed out there today. Bogeyed eight and nine, which was tough. But I knew if I kept it together on the back nine, I could make a run at the thing.” The 23-year-old former Georgia star in his second year on tour survived a final round where he had six birdies and five bogeys. He finished with a 1-under 69 for a 12-under 268 total to get the victory in the same state where he helped Baylor in Chattanooga win four Tennessee high school golf titles. English said caddie Brian Smith also helped him refocus as he made the turn. “I really didn’t think I’d be in this seat right here coming off 9,” English said. “I thought I kind of made some really dumb bogeys on eight, nine and kind of shot myself out of the tournament. But Smitty was saying, ’Hey let’s go beat this back nine. Let’s get back under par for the tournament for the day, and let’s get after it.’ So it was almost pedal to the metal.” English got four of his birdies on the back nine and saw on No. 14 that he was the lead at 10 under. He made a 5-foot birdie putt on No. 16 to tie Stallings for the lead, but Stallings bogeyed No. 18 to give English the lead to himself. English made a 17-foot birdie putt on No. 17, and

overcame shaking hands as he twoputted No. 18 to pick up the winner’s check of $1,026,000. “It’s quite an unbelievable feeling,” English said. Mickelson shot a 67, and Stallings had a 68. Mickelson said English finished strong and has been playing some great golf, but the four-time major winner got most of what he wanted after not playing the previous three weeks as he tuned up for the U.S. Open at Merion Golf Club. “I’m really encouraged with the way I hit my irons,” Mickelson said. “Got to get the 3-wood in play a little bit more, although next week at Merion distance won’t be as critical as TPC Southwind. I’ll be able to hit higher and softer shots.” English became the fourth player to win the event in his first start since the tournament moved to TPC Southwind in 1989 and the second straight after Dustin Johnson a year ago. David Hearn of Brantford, Ont., was the top Canadian. He shot 1 under Sunday to finish tied for 18th af 4-under 276. Calgary’s Stephen Ames (71) and Ottawa’s Brad Fritsch (73) finished tied for 56th at 2-over 282. English won the Southern Amateur in 2011 and was an amateur when he won on the Tour at the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Invitational in July 2011. He moved to the PGA Tour in 2012 and finished 79th on the money list. Now he has his fourth top 10 this year and a precious invitation to the Masters for the Georgia native. It looked as if Stallings, a two-time winner on tour, would add his third win in three years when he took advantage of consecutive bogeys by English on Nos. 8 and 9 to go up by three strokes. Stallings was 12 under at the turn with four birdies on the front side. But he finished with a double bogey, a birdie and a bogey in his final four holes. “You have to learn from the experiences that you have like this today and hopefully I’ll get a little bit better break next time,” Stallings said.

SPORTS EDITOR Cougars 4 Raiders 0 Cougars 3 Lightning 0 At first glance, it appeared as though the Notre Dame Cougars had pulled off a major upset in Saturday’s Central Alberta High School Soccer League girls final. But was the Cougars’ 4-0 victory over the previously undefeated Lindsay Thurber Raiders at Edgar Park truly a shocker? “Oh, no. I think our girls gave it 110 per cent in our (regular season) game when we did lose to them 4-2 and that game could have gone either way,” said Cougars coach Laurna Paetz. “Today it went our way. “The last game we missed shots and today they missed shots. It was a good team that we played today and a good victory.” Chelsea Antonio posted the shutout for the Cougars, who got a goal from each of Renee Harder, Cierra Stephens, Teala McEwan and Katelyn Kyle. The Raiders were 7-00 during regular-season play while scoring 67 goals and allowing just two. The Cougars finished second with a 5-11 slate with 41 goals for and eight against. “I’ll be honest, I kind of feel like the Pittsburgh Penguins right now,” said Lindsay Thurber coach Darren Kochan. “Our girls scored 67 goals this year and today we were just snake-bitten. We kind of ran out of luck and momentum. It happens in soccer.” The Cougars dumped

Red Deer Renegades forward Paula Dadensky chases down Kathy Curtis of Lethbridge FC during Alberta Major Women’s Soccer League action Saturday at Great Chief Park. Dadensky scored twice as the Renegades prevailed 4-1.

Renegades 4 Lethbridge FC 1 The Red Deer Alberta Major Women’s Soccer League squad struggled mightily in recent years, but what’s in the past stays in the past, coach Ado Sarcevic suggested Saturday. “Whatever happened in the past two years . . . I guess this is the best start obviously,” said Sarcevic, following the Red Deer Renegades’ 4-1 win over Lethbridge FC at Great Chief Park. The Renegades are off to a 2-0 start in the 2013 season, a far cry from the early and lasting difficulties experienced by the former Red Deer City team, which was winless last season while netting a total of four goals. “Are we truly believing in the team and the players we have? Again, it just that mentality and the players’ mentality, especially the ones who have been with the team for quite some time, that you always start slow or we didn’t score many goals,” said first-year coach Sarcevic, whose club opened the season June 2 with a 4-0 win over the host Calgary Alliance. “Now we have scored more goals in two games than in all last year.” Strikers Paula Dadensky struck for two goals — her third and fourth of the season — for the Renegades, who will attempt to nail down a third consecutive victory Wednesday when they host 0-1-1 Edmonton Northwest United at 7:30 p.m. at Great Chief Park.

Claire Wallace and Teagan Donald also tallied against winless Lethbridge (0-3), whose lone goal was courtesy of Nikki Furukawa. Sarcevic said the quick start has provided his players with a major boost of confidence. “Absolutely, and that’s what we will try to build on when we play Wednesday here,” he said. “Hopefully we can get a positive result there too, but what’s important is now we know that we have enough talent and we are able to play good soccer while scoring some goals and at the same time defending (well).” The Renegades prevailed Saturday despite the absence of regulars Sydney Daines, who scored twice in the seasonopener, and Shannon Middlemiss. “Anther good thing about this year is if we’re missing a player or two still there is enough depth on the bench that we can replace those players,” said Sarcevic. “I think that adds an extra dimension to the team.” Another key to success, the coach suggested, is controlling emotions. In other words, keeping both the highs and the lows at a manageable level. “That’s what we tell the girls,” said Sarcevic. “We had a good start and enjoyed the past week and today it was time to work again and we worked hard again. “We prepared ourselves and worked hard this game and got a win. That’s awesome. This is two games in a row now, but the third game is on its own. We are down on the ground. We are not going up there high (with emotions).”

Thurber boys win bronze at Rugby Bucs blowout Vandals STANNIX THROWS THREE provincials, girls lose in consolation TOUCHDOWNS, TEAM GETS THREE LETHBRIDGE — The Lindsay Thurber Raiders were medalists in the tier 1 provincial high school rugby championships during the weekend, ripping St. Francis Xavier of Edmonton 48-19 in the bronze-medal match. The Raiders opened with a 15-0 win over Edmonton W.P. Wagner before falling 10-0 to Lethbridge Collegiate Institute. The LCI squad down Henry Wisewood of Calgary 28-12 in the goldmedal game, while Wagner was a 27-0 winner over Okotoks Foothills in the consolation final. Meanwhile, the Lindsay Thurber girls posted a 1-2 record in the tier 1 provincials, losing 27-0 to W.P. Wagner, dumping Father Mercredi of Fort McMurray 38-5 in the second round and suffering a 37-0 loss to Calgary Western Canada in the consolation final. Raymond got past F.P. Walshe of Fort McLeod 8-3 to win gold.

Wagner defeated Sherwood Park Bev Facey 32-14 in the bronze-medal match. In tier 2 girls play, Rimbey scored a 22-0 win over Frank Maddock of Drayton Valley in the consolation final. Rimbey earlier fell 36-5 to County Central of Vulcan and knocked off Cold Lake 17-10. Host Winston Churchill defeated Springbank 7-5 on kicks to win the gold medal and County Central thumped Beaumont 61-17 to win bronze. The Rocky Mountain House West Central Rebels picked up the sportsmanship award in the tier 2 boys division. West Central opened with a 12-7 victory over Edson Parkland, then lost 36-0 to Winston Churchill in the second round and 25-10 to Beaumont in the bronze-medal game. Winston Churchill captured the tier 2 title with a 45-7 rout of Banff.

SPECIAL TEAMS TOUCHDOWNS Andrew Stannix, splitting time with Nathan Stearns at quarterback, threw three scoring strikes Saturday as the Central Alberta Buccaneers blitzed the visiting Lloydminster Vandals 62-7 in an Alberta Football League mismatch. Catching touchdown passes for the Bucs at Lacombe’s MEGlobal Athletic Park were Richard Snyder, Matt Merkley and Tylor Johnson. Stearns and Curtis Williams each rushed for a major, while Snyder and Merkley each contributed a punt-return touchdown and Johnson returned a missed field goal 128 yards for another score. Johnson added a field goal and seven converts, Josh Sorensen chipped in with a two-point conversion and Kenton Poelzer scored a safety. The Bucs, who led 38-0 at halftime, were dominant defensively as linemen Ian Keetch and Mike Clarkson each recorded three quarterback sacks. The 2-0 Buccaneers return to action June 22 at 6 p.m. against the visiting Calgary Gators.

Vettel coasts to First Canadian GP win BY THE CANADIAN PRESS MONTREAL — Sebastian Vettel wasn’t losing any sleep over never having won the Canadian Grand Prix, but when he finally did it, he did it in style. The triple world champion for the Red Bull team pulled out to a comfortable lead from pole position and was never threatened as he added the Canadian GP to his list of 29 career Formula One victories on Sunday afternoon. The German, who has a commanding 36-point lead in drivers standings, took the chequered flag 14.4 seconds ahead of Ferrari ace Fernando Alonso, his closer pursuer on the track and in the standings. “It is important to us, but I wasn’t desperate to win here,” said Vettel. “I think we had strong results in the past. “It wasn’t a shame coming in here not having won this race, so I wasn’t desperate when I got up this morning, thinking ’I have to win, I have to win.’ But I was very pleased because it’s a very nice race.” Vettel raced nicely himself, winning for the third time this season. After rain complicated preparations for all the teams during practice and qualifying on Friday and Saturday, there was warm, dry weather at race time. It made for one of the least eventful Canadian GPs ever, without the usual slipping and sliding into walls normally seen on the tightly cornered Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. Only two drivers — Sauber’s Nico Hulkenberg and Caterham’s Giedo van der Garde — failed to finish in the 22-car field. Vettel held off Lewis Hamilton’s Mercedes on the first turn from the start and pulled away. He led virtually the entire race, and had only one mishap on the 52nd of 70 laps when he cut across the grass after going into a chicane too quickly. “I was pushing hard in the begin-

ning to open a gap,” he said. “It’s Canada and you usually go close to the walls. “Sometimes I was closer than I wanted, but fortunately I didn’t crash.” As for taking a shortcut, he said: “I could have stayed on the track but it was quite tight. I didn’t want to risk a spin, so I decided to cut. I lost four or five seconds on that corner, but it was fine. It seemed the safe option.” Well behind Vettel, a fierce battle raged as Alonso recovered from a disappointing qualifying by moving up from sixth place to his fourth top-two finish in seven races this year. He got past Mark Webber’s Red Bull and Nico Roberg’s Mercedes and then zeroed in on Hamilton, the defending champion and a three-time Canadian GP winner. Alonso made a bold passing move on lap 62 that just failed, but then caught the Briton going into the first turn on the following lap. Hamilton tried desperately to catch up, but fell short. “He was very quick and it was difficult to keep him behind, but I tried my best,” said Hamilton, the 2008 world champion who said he didn’t have enough grip in his tires, especially during the tighter turns, to hold off Alonso. “I got closer, but he was generally too quick for me. “But it’s still generally a good result, considering these guys are massively quick.” Vettel leads drivers standings after seven races with 132 points to 96 for Alonso, who moved past Kimi Raikkonen’s Lotus (88 points) into second place. Hamilton is fourth with 77. Webber finished fourth in the race ahead of Rosberg, who won two weeks ago at the incident-filled Monaco Grand Prix,. At that race McLaren’s Sergio Perez nearly bumped Raikkonen off the track, prompting the usually reserved Finn to say someone should punch him in the face.


Red Bull driver Sebastian Vettel of Germany crosses the finish line to win the Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal, Sunday. Alonso emphasized how much more civilized the competition was in Montreal. “It was nice to race with such talented drivers, so intelligent drivers,” Alonso said. “You fight at 300 km/h and you feel safe. “You’re racing and competing. It can go your way or the other way, but this is real racing. I’m happy to see this back after Monaco, where it was a bit different.” There was also a surprise sixth place finish from Jean-Eric Vergne, which delighted the modest Toro Rossi squad. It was his and the team’s best finish of the season.

“The best result for me, of course, but also the highest finishing position since Vettel’s results for the (Toro Rossi) team in 2008,” said Vergne. “It is even more satisfying because it was a normal race in the dry, with no one going out in front of me, so we achieved this position fair and square.” Raikkonen had a miserable week. He was dropped two grid positions for ignoring a caution flag during qualifying and then suffered the ignominy of being lapped by Vettel after only 35 laps of the race. But he fought back to finish ninth and tied Michael Schumacher’s record of 24 consecutive races in the points.

Plenty to love about Hawks and Bylsma says Bruins Stanley Cup showdown


CHICAGO — Two franchises, rich in history, talent and star power. Two winning teams that know what it takes to bring home the Stanley Cup. Intrigue, in the form of a schedule that kept them away from each other for an entire season. Oh, there’s plenty to love about this series. The Stanley Cup finals kick off Wednesday night when the Chicago Blackhawks host the Boston Bruins in the first finals matchup of Original Six franchises since Montreal beat the New York Rangers in five games way back in 1979. The mighty Blackhawks, winners of seven of the last eight games, have a deep roster that really found its identity when pushed to the limit by the Detroit Red Wings in the second round. Then there are the playofftested Bruins, who rolled over favoured Pittsburgh during an impressive sweep that gave them a chance for a second NHL title in three seasons. It’s a gift wrapped in a bow for a league still trying to recover from a bitter lockout that wiped out 510 games and pushed the start of the season back to Jan. 19. “It’s a special couple places, the tradition of the Bruins and the Hawks is special,” Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said. “I’m sure, you know, the rivalry could return instantly come Game 1. I think it’s good for the league. It’s good for hockey. Two great hockey markets. We’re very excited to be a part of it.” Chicago advanced with a 4-3 double-overtime victory over Los Angeles on Saturday night, using a hat trick from Patrick Kane to eliminate the defending cham-

pion Kings in five games in the Western Conference finals. Back in the Stanley Cup series for the first time since 2010, the Blackhawks are in search of another title to pair with their six-game victory over the Philadelphia Flyers three years ago. “Everyone has that drive to win the Cup,” Chicago forward Andrew Shaw said. “It’s going to be a long road ahead here. It’s surreal. I’ve wanted this since I was a kid. I’m excited to get started.” Boston is rolling again after losing its spot atop the Northeast Division in the final days of the regular season. The Bruins have won five in a row and nine of 10, boosted by a familiar group of stars who led the way when they won it all in 2011. David Krejci scored four times in the Pittsburgh sweep and leads Boston with nine goals and 12 assists in the playoffs. “The excitement is there,” Bruins coach Claude Julien said Sunday. “You’ve heard people say, ‘Once you’ve been there, you want to go back.’ It’s true, we really want to go back; we made it happen. We’re excited about it and we also know what kind of challenge lies ahead for us. It’s about acknowledging that and being ready for it.” While Boston and Chicago have kept an eye on each other for a while now, there’s no way for either team to grab a real hold on what to expect at the very beginning of the series. That’s because the abbreviated 48-game schedule due to the lockout included no games against teams from the other conference. That’s right, the Bruins and Blackhawks haven’t played since Oct. 15, 2011, when Boston won 3-2 in a shootout in Chicago. There

are no mutual opponents this year, not even an All-Star game to compare the players from each conference. “I think all the information is out there for both teams to understand how we both play,” Julien said. “There’s no secrets there. Again, like I said, it’s only the head to head, how the two teams are kind of going to clash, what’s going to happen when we do. It’s as simple as that. “It’s about having confidence in what you plan on doing and going out there and executing it, that’s all you can do.” The Bruins were on the brink of elimination when they trailed Toronto 4-1 with less than 11 minutes left in the third period of Game 7 in the first round. But they managed to beat the Maple Leafs 5-4 in overtime. The Blackhawks had their own great escape in the second round, coming back from a 3-1 deficit to eliminate the rival Red Wings in seven games. The comeback included a three-goal flurry in Game 6 that erased a 2-1 deficit heading into the final period. The twin comebacks for Boston and Chicago increase the potential for a compelling series for the title. Now mix in a couple of the NHL’s best all-around forwards in Patrice Bergeron of the Bruins and Jonathan Toews of the Blackhawks, plus a slew of talented players on each side, and there are convincing arguments to be made for either team to win the title. “Here we are again,” Toews said. “We got a great chance to go back to where we want to be. We know there’s going to be some more tough moments that we’ll have to battle through. We’re confident we can do that as a team.”

PITTSBURGH — As the Pittsburgh Penguins embark on an off-season that figures to include significant changes, coach Dan Bylsma insists the goalie position won’t be one of them. Bylsma called Marc-Andre Fleury “a franchise goalie . . . this franchise’s goalie” on Sunday, one month to the day after Tomas Vokoun made his Penguins post-season debut in place of Fleury as Pittsburgh’s starter. Fleury started every playoff game the Penguins played since being taken with the No. 1 overall draft pick in 2003 until Bylsma opted to go with Vokoun for Game 5 of a first-round series against the New York Islanders. Fleury played just 43 minutes the remainder of the playoffs, fueling speculation he might be traded or bought out of his contract this summer. Not so, Bylsma said Sunday. “Marc-Andre Fleury, I’m not sure the definition of ’franchise goalie,’ (but) he’s our No. 1 goalie,” Bylsma said two days after the Boston Bruins completed a stunning sweep of the Penguins in the Eastern Conference finals. “He’s a No. 1 goalie for this franchise and he will be going forward. “We were in a situation where Tomas Vokoun went into net and won the third and fourth games of a series for us and continued to play in our net. But Marc-Andre Fleury is a guy who’s going to come back to our team and he’s going to be the No. 1 goalie. He’s going to be the franchise goalie. He’s going to be this franchise’s goalie.” The 28-year-old Fleury has two years and $10 million left on a seven-year contract extension he signed with Pittsburgh after leading the Penguins to the Stanley Cup Finals in 2008. He backstopped them to the Stanley Cup title a year later, going a combined 30-14 with a 2.31 goalsagainst average and .920 save percentage over those two post-season runs. Since, though, it’s been a much different story. Over the past four postseasons, Fleury is 14-16. He hasn’t posted a save percentage of .900 or better or a goals-against average of 2.50 or better in a playoff year since. Last year, in a first-round series defeat to the Philadelphia Flyers, Fleury allowed 26 goals in six games. He gave up 17 in the equivalent of less than five full games this season — including 14 in a threegame stretch before losing his job. “I didn’t change anything from Game 1 when I had a shutout to Game 2 when I had four goals against,” Fleury said Sunday. “I don’t think there was a technical problem; I think there were a few bad bounces, hit a skate, there was something every game that went in — and then it’s a four-goal game instead of a two-goal game, and that made everything worse. “Sometimes you start thinking a little more. You want to win and you want to do good for your team. It’s disappointing at the end of the night those four are in the net.”

Players get to know U.S. Open venue ARDMORE, Pa. — Merion Golf Club opened the gates Sunday to fans who wanted to buy U.S. Open merchandise. Some of them got a free glimpse of Tiger Woods. But not for long. Woods played 13 holes under hazy sunshine, far different conditions from what he saw two weeks ago in the wind and rain that made the shortest U.S. Open course in nine years feel much longer. He was among a scattering of players who spent a lazy afternoon getting to know a golf course that last held a major championship 32 years ago. But while no one in the field played in that 1981 U.S. Open that David Graham won with a flawless final round, Kevin Chappell is among those getting reacquainted. Chappell played four competitive rounds in 2005 during the U.S. Amateur, the litmus test for the USGA to make sure Merion was still current with the modern game. He lost in the third round that year, and while the surroundings look different with the grandstands and hospitality areas, one thing hasn’t changed. “It’s a tour event on steroids,” Chappell said. Merion is 6,996 yards on the scorecard, making it the first major championship under 7,000 yards since Shinnecock Hills (also 6,996 yards) for the 2004 U.S. Open. But the yardage can be deceiving. One of the par 5s is 628 yards, and Geoff Ogilvy figured there would be dozens of players who struggle to reach the green in three shots, much less get home in two. Another par 5 has been shifted to the right, bringing out-of-bounds close to the edge of the fairway. It has a par 3 of only 115 yards — the other par 3s all are over 240 yards. And perhaps the biggest change from most recent U.S. Opens is the rough. It’s long and thick. “The rough is longer than we’ve seen,” said Ogilvy, who had never seen Merion until arriving this weekend. “You can’t make grass grow in four days, but you can cut. Although I don’t think they will.” USGA executive director Mike Davis was making the rounds Sunday afternoon, checking on a course that received about 3 ½ inches of rain Friday, so much that the creek near the par-4 11th green was starting to creep over the rock wall. It was back to normal Sunday, though the forecast is suspect for a big part of week. Chappell played 18 holes with former Masters champion Zach Johnson and Tim Clark, and he couldn’t help but notice how many of the fairways have shifted to move closer to the trouble. Then, he clarified what he meant by “trouble.” “Closer to the boundary stakes,” he said. Some of the fans leaned against the railing by the

Park outlasts Matthew in extra holes to win LPGA Championship BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS PITTSFORD, N.Y. — Fatigue gave way to relief for Inbee Park upon learning that playing 36 holes in one day weren’t going to be enough to win the LPGA Championship. Rather than fret about the eight fairways missed, and the three-shot lead she relinquished on the back nine Sunday, Park refocused before the first suddendeath playoff hole. “Nothing seemed to be working, So I really cleared my head, and just looked at the fairway,” Park said. “And I just smashed it.” It took three playoff holes, but the top-ranked South Korean star persevered by draining a 20-foot birdie putt on the par-4 18th to outlast Catriona Matthew and claim the rain-delayed major. Park won her fourth title of the season and second of two majors in what became an extended golf marathon at the 6,500-yard, water-logged Locust Hill Country Club outside of Rochester. The two-round final day was forced after torrential rains postponed the start of the first round Thursday. By 8 p.m. on Sunday — about 12 hours after Park teed off to open the third round — a winner was finally decided. “It’s almost a miracle that I won today,” Park said. “I think I got lucky there, too. And I really tried to fight off and tried not to give up. That really paid off.” Park closed with a 3-over 75 to match Matthew at 5-under 383. The 42-year-old Matthew, from Scotland, got to the playoff in an altogether different fashion. She finished with a bogey-free 68 before anxiously waiting to see whether that was enough to give her a shot. “When I started the last round, I probably didn’t realize I could win,” Matthew said, noting she was seven shots back when the final round began. “So to play well, and get into the playoffs was obviously pretty good. Obviously, when you get into it, it’s pretty disappointing. But overall, a pretty good week.” After both made par on the first two playoff holes, Matthew struggled off the 18th tee on the third. After having difficulty advancing the ball out of the rough just below the green on her third shot, Matthew missed a 50-foot par chip. The 24-year-old Park also won the Kraft Nabisco in California in early April and has four victories this year. With the victory, Asian players have won nine straight majors. Also the 2008 U.S. Women’s Open winner, Park became only the seventh player to win the LPGA’s first two majors in a season, and the first since Annika Sorenstam won the same two events in 2005. Park has seven career LPGA Tour victories, six in her last 22 starts. In claiming the $337,500 first prize, Park increased her season winnings to $1.22 million, and moved into 25th on the LPGA Tour’s career list at just under $6.5 million. Suzann Pettersen and Morgan Pressel tied for third, a shot behind the leaders. Pettersen had the low round for the tournament, closing with a 65. Pressel collapsed after she opened the day with a two-stroke lead through two rounds at 6-under 138. “I’m definitely disappointed, but it’s the first time in a long time I’ve contended,” said Pressel, winless since 2008. “I’m happy with the way that I played this week as a whole. I had chances. Nothing went in. And that happens.” Trailing Pressel by five shots midway through the third round, Park surged into a one-shot lead with birdies on four of her final six holes for a 68. Despite her struggles, it was a lead she wouldn’t relinquish. Park spent the final two rounds playing in the final threesome with Pressel and Chella Choi. Tied with Pressel at 7 under with nine holes left, Park appeared to take control in building a threeshot lead after the 12th hole. Pressel bogeyed Nos. 10 and 12, while Park drained a 3-foot putt for a birdie on No. 11.


road on the left side of the 15th hole, so close to the fairway that they could have a personal conversation with Hunter Mahan, and even applaud his short iron to about 12 feet. Merion has a lot of meat early in the round, particularly the opening six holes. What follows is a seven-hole stretch of par 3s and par 4s, the longest at 403 yards, which is short by today’s standards. It’s where the birdies are to be made, assuming the ball is placed in the correct part of the fairway. And then comes the strong finish. Mahan opted for a driver off the 15th hole — it’s about 290 yards to cover the bunkers dotting the right side, so he picked out a tall fir tree just left of them. It was an aggressive play, and that’s that Chappell expects to see from several players. But not all of them. “There will be a big discrepancy in play,” Chappell said. “You can challenge some of these holes if you want to.” The winning score at Merion has improved each of the previous four U.S. Opens. Olin Dutra won at 293 in 1934, followed by Ben Hogan at 287 in 1950, Lee Trevino at 280 in 1971 and Graham at 273 in 1981. Chappell can see something along the lines of 10-under par if the week gets enough rain to make the greens soft. Yes, Merion can hold its own against the best in the world. “There’s too many wedges,” he said, referring to the middle stretch of the golf course. Ogilvy was walking up the 12th fairway when he pointed to the thick grass framing the landing areas and said, “There won’t be any scoring records this week.” There was rain early in the week at Olympia Fields in 2003, which softened the course. Vijay Singh shot 63 in the second round. Jim Furyk was at 10-under 200 to set the 54-hole record at the time, and despite bogeys on the last two holes, his 272 tied what was then the U.S. Open record. It was soft at Congressional in 2011 when Rory McIlroy set the new standard, finishing on 16-under 268. “I think there will be low rounds, but I don’t think the total will be low,” Ogilvy said. There’s no telling what this week will bring at Merion, though Ogilvy figured it would start from the tee. “It takes a lot of practice to work out some of these lines,” he said. “On 10 of the holes (minus the par 3s),

The venerable course once thought to be too short and small to stage the USGA’s marquee event will host the U.S. Open this week. you’ve got to be comfortable. There’s no specific clue where to hit it. You have to know it. Off the tee, it’s quite awkward. Someone who drives it the best this week will fare quite well — not the straightest, but the best.” Furyk, Phil Mickelson and Steve Stricker played Merion in the 1989 U.S. Amateur. Chappell, defending U.S. Open champion Webb Simpson and New Orleans winner Billy Horschel were among those at the 2005 U.S. Amateur, while Morgan Hoffmann and Rickie Fowler played Merion in the 2009 Walker Cup. The biggest difference? Except for one qualifying round at the U.S. Amateur, that was match play. The worst anyone could do was to lose a hole. Starting Thursday, they have to count every stroke on every hole.

Riggers drop shootout against A’s The Red Deer Riggers had their bats going at full force but their pitching couldn’t contain the opposing team’s bats during their game Sunday. The Riggers dropped a 15-12 decision to the Ft. Saskatchewan A’s at Great Chief Park. Curtis Bailey was 2-4 with a grand slam and a double to lead the Riggers offensively while Matt Fay was 3-4 with a double and RBI and Jason Chatwood was 2-4 with two RBI’s.

In a scary moment during the game Curtis Mazurkewich was hit in the head with a pitch and had to the leave the game. He ended up being alright but wound up with a black-eye. The pitching had a tough night as starter Joel Peterman was knocked around for five runs (four earned) in 3 1/3 innings but his relief didn’t fare much better. Davin Gulbransen gave up another five runs (four earned) in 1 1/3 in-

nings and Sean Maguire was also touched up for five runs in 3 2/3 innings of work. The Riggers will try to get back in the win column with a pair of games this week starting with hosting the Parkland White Sox at Great Chief Park at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday. They will then travel up to Ft. Saskatchewan to try and get some revenge on the A’s at 7 p.m. on Wednesday.

Frost wins first senior major by one stroke at Regions BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — David Frost never flinched in his showdown with Hall of Famer Fred Couples even with his first major championship on the line and a late rain delay to ponder the stakes. Frost parred the final two holes to hold on for a one-stroke victory over Couples on Sunday in the Regions Tradition, the South African’s first major title in 17 attempts on the Champions Tour. “We came in from the break and I said to myself, It’s not going to be easy,” Frost said. “Freddy’s got nothing to lose. He’s going to go out there and hit the shots and fire at the pins. I’ve just got to kind of accept it and be up to the challenge.” Both birdied No. 16 after play resumed with the sun shining after a delay of 1 hour, 8 minutes for lightning in a round played at times in driving rain. Couples and Frost both shot 4-under 68, and Frost finished at 16-under 272. It was Frost’s second victory of the season and fifth career win on the 50-and-over tour. “We both played very hard today. I don’t know who wanted it more, me or him,” said Frost, who took over the points lead from Bernhard Langer. “He’s just such a tough competitor. I didn’t think I had it in me, all the good shots he hit out there. I just had to

try to stay on top of him.” The two bumped fists coming up on 18 in what had ultimately turned into a two-man duel. “He played very well,” Couples said. “I gave him pretty much everything I had. I hit some pretty good shots. I drove it pretty well. He was just better the whole day. He stayed one ahead and that’s where we ended up.” Also the Toshiba Classic winner in March in California, Frost hit his approach shot to 10 feet of the closing hole and two-putted to match Couples’ par. Couples had sent his approach into the bunker at right and his potential birdie putt went just to the left. The next round of heavy rain started within a couple of minutes of the end of the round, which opened in the morning with a two-tee start. John Cook and Esteban Toledo finished three strokes back, while Michael Allen, Russ Cochran and Duffy Waldorf were 12 under. Cook closed with a 66 and Toledo, Mexico, had a 67. Couples was seeking a second straight win in a major. He sat out the Senior PGA Championship three weeks ago but won the Senior British Open in 2012. Frost had come close in a major before but this time managed to nurse his one-stroke lead through the final round. He lost to Tom Lehman in a threeway playoff at the 2010 Senior PGA Championship.

Top Rod Oszust, General Sales Manager, and the entire team at Southside Dodge would like to congratulate these top three performers for the month of May. Their continued dedication and commitment to customer satisfaction makes this accomplishment possible.

A simulated refugee camp in Red Deer will give people a first-hand understanding of the experiences and life inside one. Last year, more than 700 people attended the camp where they were given a new ID, that of a refugee, and learned about food and water distribution, shelter, school, employment — essentially everything from registration to resettlement. The fourth annual event is open to the public from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. The goal this year is to temporarily turn 1,000 people into refugees. The camp will be held on June 20 at the parking lot across from the Kinex Arena, at 4725 43rd St. For more information, call 403-346-8818 or email publicawareness@

Early Wednesday morning, Harry Watchmaker set out on the highway from Red Deer to Edmonton for a meeting. Not far along his journey, he looked up and saw what appeared to be two suns, one on top of the other. On Saturday, he sung and drummed a song about the sun at the Feast to Remember the Children event. His connection to the giant life-giving orb seems a natural fit, considering the infectiously sunny disposition of the man from the Kehewin Cree Nation. But a period of terrible darkness is not far away, the six years he spent at the Blue Quills Indian Residential School in the early 1960s implanted in his memory. “We got hit so many times. Even if you didn’t get hit, you see a kid get hit, you feel it. “One day I got up, I couldn’t walk. My legs just gave way. I couldn’t walk for four days. I see these kids playing, I wanted to play. “My legs just about lost their nerves from the hits,” Watchmaker, 62, recalled. For the last four years, he has been travelling around the province, offering support to Aboriginals, encouraging them to tell their stories. He will tell his own story at the March 2014 Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) national hearing in Edmonton, the last of the seven national events to take place. “That’s when I’ll be ready. I don’t want to rush, I don’t want to forget about anything that

My story will be my story,” he said. Others chose to share their stories through public hearings in Red Deer on Thursday and Friday at Alberta’s first TRC event. On Saturday, the event wrapped up with visits to cemeteries where 20 to 40 of the children who attended the Red Deer Industrial School from 1893-1919 were buried, and a public feast and ceremony that drew around 200 people. As part of the ceremony at Fort Normandeau, the fourth and final commemorative event organized by the Remembering

the Children Society, the names of the 325 students who were forced into attending the Red Deer school across the river from Fort Normandeau were solemnly read off. Society president Charles Wood of the Saddle Lake Cree Nation said the weekday hearings went extremely well, the fact that hundreds of school children were able to take in some of the event and learn about Canadians’ shared history being paricularly heartening. “I feel now that we are into a new era,” said Wood, “I think we’re on a good road.”

The fact that through the TRC Canadians are beginning to hear of the harm governments did to Aboriginals and their communities through residential schools and other policies is a positive outcome, TRC chairperson Justice Murray Sinclair said. The harm from residential schools has extended through seven generations, he said, and is seen today in the disproportionate rates of Aboriginals who are criminally victimized, in prison and in foster care. “That dysfunction stems from the impact of residential schools upon the ability of families to take care of each other. People who came out of the residential schools were unable to parent properly. “You can’t learn to parent when you live in an institution. You can’t learn to love when you were raised in an environment where love is prohibited,” said Sinclair. Speaking for 45 minutes to the assembled crowd at Saturday’s event, Sinclair stressed that education is critical so that young Aboriginals can come to know who they are, where they come from, where they are going, and why they are here. “The education system was important for the government as a tool to take us away from our identity, and now we have to see that the education system is an important tool to get us back to our identity.” The next of the five regional Truth and Reconciliation Committee events will take place from June 18-19 in Slake Lake. The national event for Alberta will take place March 27-30, 2014.

Artifacts collected for ‘Witness Blanket’ project BY MYLES FISH ADVOCATE STAFF While the Truth and Reconciliation Commission is working to ensure that the stories of the thousands of young children forced to attend Indian Residential Schools are not lost to history, one artist is on a mission to ensure that the inanimate remnants of the sad legacy live on as well. Carey Newman, a carver from Sooke, B.C. on Vancouver Island, is working on an ambitious goal to collect 2,500 pieces of memorabilia representative of the residential school era and all the parties involved. Among the 200 pieces he “has to have” are things from the Parliament Buildings, the Supreme Court, each of the provincial legislatures and churches involved in residential schools, and, most importantly, something from each of the nearly 150 residential and day schools that once existed in this country. On Saturday, he got a big contribution to his efforts, when the Remembering the Children Society presented the project with a piece of white sandstone from the old foundation of the Red Deer Industrial School and a red brick which was part of the school’s boys’ residence. Newman’s undertaking will see him assemble all the pieces into a “Witness Blanket” with objects mounted onto a cedar base. He likened the plan to that of a beaded bracelet “where there

“In Salish culture there is a tradition of ‘blanketing’ - when a blanket is given to offer protection, strength or public recognition. In that manner, this blanket will stand as a woven testament to our shared history, upholding and honouring the

survivors and their families,” explained Newman. His own father is one of those survivors, having attended a residential school in Mission, B.C. Newman said his father never shared his experiences with his children when they were younger, and was only able to unburden himself partially when he gave a statement at a Victoria Truth and Reconciliation Commission event. “The day I turned the age that he was when he was taken, our relationship took a really drastic turn away from an amiable father-son relationship and it wasn’t until we’d been through a bunch of counselling, a bunch of learning to communicate that we were able to repair that damage. It was the day he lost his father, essentially. It’s not a direct effect, but it’s the kind of thing that happens to the subsequent generations,” said Newman. Newman is still in the early stages of collecting for the project. He has two helpers who will be making gathering trips across the country — Rosy Steinhauer, the grand-niece of former lieutenant-governor and residential school survivor Ralph Steinhauer collected the Red Deer artifacts — until the end of the year. Newman is receiving support for his project through the Truth and Reconciliation Commission fund, and plans to have it completed in 2014. For more on the endeavour, visit

Healthy breakfast may be behind man’s diabetes BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS ENCINITAS, Calif. — Geoff Soza was celebrating his 30th wedding anniversary in Yellowstone National Park when the 64-yearold man learned the hard way that his seemingly healthy breakfast habit of mixing thawed berries with Greek yogurt had exposed him to a national outbreak of hepatitis A. Dozens of illnesses have been reported, and federal officials have recalled a frozen berry mix sold by Costco and Harris Teeter in seven states. Soza, a semi-retired contractor, was resting at his Encinitas home this week after an ordeal that threatened to put him on a liver transplant list. He hadn’t felt right in the weeks before leaving for Yellowstone on May 29 — but his lack of appetite and disorientation didn’t merit cancelling the trip. “I thought, ’I’m getting something. I’m coming down with something’ and I thought I’d just ride it out and live with it,” he said. His wife, Rita, said he doesn’t complain much as “a very active, tough kind of person,” but he seemed lethargic when they flew to Salt Lake City and rented a car to drive to the park. On the second night of their trip, the Sozas called paramedics who examined Geoff and recommended he visit St. John’s Medical Center. They didn’t think a medical evacuation was necessary. They thought they could wait until morning, but after a few hours, Rita drove three hours on dark rural roads to Jackson, Wyo. Doctors initially thought Geoff Soza’s gall bladder needed to be removed after finding signs of inflammation and stones. But general surgeon Dr. Michael Rosenberg halted the surgery, scheduled for June 1, because of Soza’s elevated liver enzymes. After more tests, Soza was diagnosed with hepatitis A, Rosenberg said. Soza could have suffered liver damage or excessive bleeding if the surgery had gone ahead as planned, Rosenberg said. Doctors told Soza they could treat him, but if it didn’t go well, they would have him taken to a regional liver transplant centre in Utah. “That’s when it really struck me, like, ’Really? Liver transplant?’ ” Geoff Soza said. Luckily, such measures are rarely, if ever, necessary for hepatitis A, Rosenberg said.

Judge’s rulings question U.S. transplant policy’s fairness BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


Rita Soza poses for a picture in her home in Encinitas, Calif., Wednesday, June 5, 2013. Soza’s husband, Geoff Soza may have exposed himself to a national outbreak of hepatitis A, possibly from his healthy morning eating habits. Hepatitis A can be spread by the ingestion of a microscopic amount of fecal matter from an infected person, typically a food worker who hasn’t washed their hands. Symptoms include fever, fatigue, loss of appetite, abdominal pain and jaundice — a yellowing of the skin or eyes. There is no specific treatment. The ill can feel sick for weeks — or up to six months — as their body heals itself. Healthy and health-conscious, the Sozas always inspect their foods and select organic produce. They were surprised to learn that some of the fruit from Townsend Farms of Fairview, Ore., was from outside the United States. The Centers for Disease Control said the recalled berries included products from Argentina, Turkey and Chile, in addition to the United States. But the packaging convinced the Sozas the fruit was all-American because it bears the slogans “Grower. Processor. Distributor.” and “Field to Farm to Family, since 1906.” “It was our distinct impression that these are raised under U.S. standards, especially organic food standards,” Rita Soza said.

Geoff Soza said he chose the berries to have for breakfast for about 6 months. The Sozas are fairly adventurous eaters who like to experiment with new foods. Frozen berries were the last thing he thought would make him sick. “I would have thought it would be from fish or something like that, but not ever from fruit, especially berries,” Soza said. Rita Soza said after she learned of the berries, she was upset by Costco’s response, saying she unsuccessfully tried to call the number on her membership card for information — but she couldn’t get a live person on the phone. She returned home to find a message on her answering machine Tuesday. Costco Vice-President for food safety Craig Wilson said the company contacted 240,000 members with information about the outbreak and received more than 10,000 calls over the weekend. Some of those sickened by the berries have filed lawsuits seeking medical costs and damages, and at least one suit filed in Los Angeles this week seeks class action status. The Sozas say they haven’t decided to take legal action.

WASHINGTON — It’s a life or death matter: Who gets the next scarce donated organ? In an unprecedented challenge to the nation’s transplant system, a federal judge has allowed one dying child — and a day later another — to essentially jump the line in rulings that could have ramifications for thousands of people awaiting new organs. Over and over, the nation debates the fairness of transplant policies, from Mickey Mantle’s liver in the 1990s to people today who cut their wait times by moving to another city where the list is shorter. But back-to-back rulings by a federal judge this week appear to be a legal first that specialists expect to prompt more lawsuits from people seeking a shorter wait, just like the parents of two patients in a Philadelphia hospital — 10-year-old Sarah Murnaghan and 11-year-old Javier Acosta. “People who have privilege or people who complain more loudly or have political voice shouldn’t be able to claim special treatment,” said Lawrence O. Gostin, a prominent health law professor at Georgetown University, who questioned the legal basis of the rulings. Transplant policies aim to be “fair and just for everyone, not just for that one heartwrenching case.” Johns Hopkins University transplant surgeon Dr. Dorry Segev put it more starkly: “Every choice that is made in transplantation in favour of one patient means the likely death on the list for another patient.” Indeed, when Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius refused to intervene in Sarah’s case, she pointed out that three other children also at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia were in the same condition, and 40 other seriously ill Pennsylvanians over the age of 12 also were awaiting a lung transplant. The Murnaghans challenged a lung transplant policy that matches children under 12 with pediatric donors, who are rare, or offers them adult lungs only after adolescents and adults on the waiting list have a chance at them. The family said Sarah will die without a new set of lungs soon and argued that children under 12 should have equal access to adult donations. Javier Acosta’s family of New York City filed a similar lawsuit Thursday, saying he may die on the waiting list like his brother did two years ago. Like Sarah, Javier’s lungs have been destroyed by cystic fibrosis. “The problem is, we can’t build a system around making exceptions for everybody that isn’t getting the transplant when they need it,” Dr. John Roberts, who heads the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network’s board, said Thursday. The bigger issue that these lawsuits raise: Should the nation’s transplant policy be changed so that children always get preference? Roberts said that is a fair question that society needs to debate, and if so, what age to set as the cutoff. Do 16-year-olds get the same preference as grade-schoolers? Segev, the Hopkins surgeon who transplants kidneys and livers, offers a tougher example: What if an organ was available that would give a 25-year-old a 98 per cent chance of success and a 15-year-old a 5 per cent chance of success — who gets it, especially if the 15-year-old is a little sicker?

Saudi demands delay research into MERS source says CDC TORONTO — Last October, scientists from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control went to Saudi Arabia to try to find the source of a new virus which at that point was known to have killed one Saudi man and left a man from Qatar gravely ill. The CDC scientists are still waiting for a chance to test the samples they took during that investigation. Those specimens remain in Saudi Arabia, tied up in prolonged negotiations for a material transfer agreement the Saudi government has insisted the American agency sign. The situation is frustrating the American scientists and impeding efforts to find the source of a virus which has now infected 55 people, killing 31 of them. It’s also ironic. Dr. Ziad Memish, the Saudi deputy health minister, has complained bitterly and publicly that the Dutch laboratory that first identified the MERS coronavirus applied for a patent on its genetic sequence and has been requiring labs that want virus samples to sign just such an agreement, known in research lingo as an MTA.

The scientist who heads the CDC division which is waiting for the Saudi samples said it is uncommon for the agency to be asked to sign an MTA to study samples taken during the course of an outbreak investigation. The team was in Saudi Arabia at the invitation of the kingdom’s government. Mark Pallansch, who is director of the CDC’s division of viral diseases, said it is also unusual for it to take this long to negotiate and sign an MTA. He would not comment on why the negotiations have been so protracted. “We are told at this point that we are close,” Pallansch said. “So I do have some degree of hope that we will indeed have this completed in the near future.” The fact that the American public health agency is still waiting, seven months later, for samples collected during an outbreak investigation came as a shock to an international health law expert who has been following the issues related to intellectual property claims on the Middle Eastern Respiratory Syndrome virus, or MERS. “The fact that negotiations are still going on about an MTA ... is very surprising,” David Fidler, who teaches at Indiana University, said Friday when

are themselves one of the key obstacles to getting research done on the coronavirus.” “We need to dig into that as well as these other questions that have been thrown around.” The WHO and several national public health agencies have expressed concern that the lack of information flow from Saudi Arabia is limiting the world’s ability to assess the risk posed by MERS. While infections have occurred in several other Middle Eastern countries — Jordan, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates — and cases have been exported to Britain, France, Tunisia and Italy, the lion’s share of cases have occurred in Saudi Arabia. According to the WHO’s tally, 41 cases have occurred or emerged from the kingdom, and 26 of them have been fatal.

In an interview, he noted Memish had complained at the recent World Health Assembly — the annual meeting of the World Health Organization — that the need for laboratories to sign an MTA with Erasmus Medical Centre in Rotterdam was slowing down scientific research on the MERS virus. “Well here we have apparently a Saudi MTA with the CDC, the negotiation of which is causing delays in terms of getting samples and getting scientific research done,” he said, adding it raises questions about whether “decisions that Saudi Arabia has made

Nuclear liability cap to be raised Sources tell The Canadian Press that federal Natural Resources Minister Joe Oliver is set to roll out his plan to raise the liability cap that Canadian nuclear operators would have to pay in case of an accident. That amount is now set at $75 million but that is widely considered outdated, especially in the wake of the Fukushima disaster that caused tens of billions of dollars worth of damage. The federal Conservatives have put forward legislation several times in the past that would have increased the liability cap to $650-million, but the bills have failed every time. This time, documents obtained by Greenpeace earlier this year showed Ottawa was contemplating raising the liability cap somewhat higher than $650-million.

Apple updates expected Apple is expected to reveal a digital radio service and changes to the software behind iPhones and iPads today as the company opens its annual conference for software developers. Apple hasn’t said what it will unveil at the Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco. But the major announcements are expected during today’s keynote presentation. The conference runs through Friday. This year, Apple is expected to show off a simplified look on iPhones and iPads. If the speculation is correct, it would be the most radical design change since the iPhone made its debut in 2007, showing consumers that phones could do much more than make calls and exchange messages. This week’s event comes at an important time for Apple. The company’s stock price has fallen amid concerns that another breakthrough product isn’t imminent.

Chedda’ Heads heading out with gourmet grilled cheese BY HARLEY RICHARDS ADVOCATE BUSINESS EDITOR Richard Dowling is taking grilled cheese sandwiches onto the road. The managing partner of Chedda’ Heads expects to be serving up the classic meal from his food truck this week. But his toast-and-cheese offerings will be a step up from the sandwiches Mom used to serve, with selections like The Hellbent, Three Amigos and Rearview Mirror. “We’ve got seven gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches,” said Dowling. “We don’t do hotdogs, we don’t do burgers — we’re grilled cheese.” Customers will be able to opt for Mac N Cheesy, including Mac N Cheesy with Pulled Pork. Also on the menu are sweet potato chips, soup, cookies and more. There’s even a gluten-free sandwich. All will be prepared aboard a 1999 Chevrolet P30 commercial truck, which has been retrofitted with a commercial grade kitchen. Its stainless steel interior includes an oven, grill, burners, deep-fryers, coolers and sinks. Orders will be taken at a serving window using an iPad, and then transmitted to the cook inside via a wireless printer. Payment can be made via Interact, debit, credit or cash. “I’ve been wanting to do this for over 3 ½ years,” said Dowling of his mobile venture. The idea originated during a trip to New York City, when the Red Deer resident was struck by the busy food trucks there. After researching the industry, Dowling decided to start his own motorized restaurant, and eventually settled on the comfort food that his mother used to make. Setting up a specialized food truck was not cheap, he acknowledged, saying only that the cost was “north of a lot.”


But Dowling is optimistic his business will be a hit. He points to the growing popularity of food trucks in cities like Calgary. “It’s growing. People want it; there’s a need for it.” Dowling plans to dispense his grilled cheese sandwiches at Food Truck Friday in downtown Red Deer, as well as at the Red Deer Public Market on Saturdays. He also hopes to be on hand for the Downtown Farmers’ Market on Wednesdays, and at other select events and private functions. Chedda’ Heads has already been invited to set up shop at various commercial and industrial sites in the city. Customers will be able to track the truck’s location via Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Chedda’ Heads is expected to operate 10 months a year, with staff ranging from two to four or more during busy events like Westerner Days. The colourful truck is already turning heads as it drives about the city. “It handles nice,” said Dowling of the 24-foot vehicle. “You just have to make sure you take the corners wide.”


Green-building leader faces fight with states A small number of U.S. states are joining a fight against the nation’s leading name in green building, saying its standards discourage builders from using wood grown in their own forests. The U.S. Green Building Council’s program is called Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, or LEED. It’s so popular it grants voluntary environmental certification to roughly 1.5 million square feet of new construction daily. But some governors and lawmakers say strict standards for what LEED considers sustainably grown wood are hurting growers in their states. The Green Building Council says the controversy is being drummed up by forestry groups trying to force it to accept lesser standards. — The Canadian Press and The Associated Press

TORONTO — The Toronto stock market likely faces more tough slogging in the weeks ahead as resource stocks lose ground alongside commodity prices amid a slowing global economy. And the other major TSX pillar, financials, will likely find gains elusive amid a slowing economy and housing sector. At the same time, New York markets could be in for more volatility as traders try to gauge the intentions of the U.S. Federal Reserve as far as easing up on stimulus. This week is also thin for economic data, with traders looking to U.S. retail sales and Canadian manufacturing shipments. North American stock markets had very different outcomes last week as the Dow industrials edged up 0.87 per cent amid a stronger than expected reading on American job creation last month. The showing left the blue chip index up 16 per cent for the year. But the TSX had yet another disappointing week, losing 2.14 per cent, led by declines in energy and base metal stocks, leaving the main index down about 60 appoints year to date. “Unless the resource sector, unless commodities mount a significant recovery and rally in the last half of the year, it’s difficult to come up with scenario where the Toronto stock market does a lot better, let alone catches up the U.S.”, said Andrew Pyle, portfolio manager at ScotiaMcLeod in Peterborough, Ont. The resource sector has been dealing with a double whammy of chunks of the eurozone stuck in recession while Chinese economic growth is well off the highs or recent years. The International Monetary Fund in late May trimmed its growth forecast for China this year from eight per cent to 7.75 per cent due to weaker global demand. “What’s happening on top of that, you have Canadian banks that are being looked at less favourably than U.S. banks, you have a lot of analysts out there now saying US banks offer better potential for growth than Canadian banks and that’s a big chunk of the TSX,” added Pyle. The U.S. markets have their own particular headwinds to face in the form of the fallout from comments by Fed chairman Ben Bernanke last month that the U.S. central bank might pull back on its $85 billion-a-month bond-buying program — known as quantitative easing — if economic data, especially hiring, improves significantly. Other Fed officials have spoken about a winding down of asset purchases sooner. Those remarks set off a wave of volatility across stock markets, as QE has kept interest rates and bond yields low and also helped fuel a strong rally on stock markets this year. But rising speculation about an easing of Fed purchases of bonds has also had the effect of depressing bond prices and raising yields, leaving the benchmark U.S. 10-year Treasury at about 2.15 per cent, up sharply from around 1.6 per cent at the beginning of May. “I think that’s what really spooked the market, (and it) just shows how dependent the bond market and stock markets have been on the whole quantitative easing program,” said Pyle. Rising bond yields are negative on two fronts. One, they can depress equities because investors feel they don’t have to invest in stocks to get a decent return. The other concern is that they could put the blocks to a steady bright spot in the American economy this year — the housing market U.S. home prices soared 12.1 per cent in April from a year earlier, the biggest gain since February 2006, while sales of previously-occupied homes ticked up to a 3 ½ year high that month.

Financial education improving: not there yet



The report card on how well Canadians are doing educating their children about money and finances has some good and some not-sogood grades. In its latest financial literacy study, BMO Financial Group found that while the majority of Canadians believe teaching children about money matters is important and is a key to a healthier economy, very few actually spend much time discussing money manage-

ment with them. Canadians almost universally recognize the importance of developing good financial habits early in life. In fact, 99 per cent of survey respondents agreed about the importance financial literacy can play in bringing about national prosperity. Yet only 18 per cent of Canadian parents spend a lot of time with their children discussing money

and financial matters. “The survey results clearly indicate that Canadians put a premium on getting to our kids early to teach them the basics of personal finance and that we, as a society, need to place more of an emphasis on this,” said Jacques Menard, chairman of BMO Nesbitt Burns and vice-chair of the Federal Financial Literary task force.

MONEY: Distance and disconnect “But less than 20 per cent of parents spend any time or ample time talking to their children about money. So between what we think and how we behave there is a distance and a disconnect.” Despite its importance, parents spend more time talking to their children about school, their hobbies and friends and what they want to do in the future in life than they do about money. “Somehow we never get around to that. We’re not comfortable doing that,” Menard said. In the study, 96 per cent of Canadians agreed that more needs to be done to teach children and teenagers in school about finances. Parents do believe that their children are more financially literate than they were at their age. Nearly half of Canadians feel it’s significant that children under the age of nine have a basic understanding of personal finances on introductory practices, like how to budget for the next holiday. And the majority of Canadians believe it’s important for pre-teens and high school and university students to be financially literate. “There is a growing interest in all sectors for improvements in financial literacy, recognizing the challenge that many people face with their financial decisions today,” said Gary Rabbior, president of the Canadian Foundation for Economic Education (CFEE). BMO has partnered with the CFEE to develop a new program called “Talk to your kids about money” to help young Canadians learn about money and personal finances. The program has both a home and school component.

The school program targets Grade 7 teachers and students. All teachers are encouraged to have a lesson relevant to their subject area — which could be social sciences, history, geography, language arts, music, art, drama or mathematics — but with a focus on a money topic. It includes lesson plans linked to provincial curricula. The teacher registers on the program’s website and is provided with sample lessons for the province in which they live. Access also is available to the lessons in other provinces that teachers can use for comparison or to get other ideas. The lessons do not require much preparation and are designed to be fun, engaging and educational for both the students and teachers. The home program provides support for parents and guardians to talk to children of all ages about the subject. The program’s website provides ideas, activities, tools and resources to help parents and guardians engage children in talks and activities about money. They are organized by age ranges (five to seven, eight to 10, etc.) and there are ideas for activities in the community, day trips, games, music, and TV shows and movies to watch. There is no charge to teachers or parents/guardians to participate. The program is available immediately to parents and guardians across the country. The CFEE is working with provinces to have the program integrated into their compulsory school programs, as well as a network of about 1,000 immigrant-serving agencies across the country which recognize the importance of helping newcomers and past immigrants with the financial challenges they face integrating into Canada and settling here. Talbot Boggs is a Toronto-based business communications professional who has worked with national news organizations, magazines and corporations in the finance, retail, manufacturing and other industrial sectors.

Finance review of GST rules for financial services called “broadly” revenue neutral THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA — The Harper government says an internal review of how much GST Canada’s banks and other financial institutions should pay will not be a tax grab. “The expectation is that any changes made as a result of the examination should be broadly revenue neutral,” said Stephanie Rubec, spokeswoman for the Finance Department. “It is done as part of the department’s routine examination of the tax system to ensure it is operating efficiently and to identify areas for potential improvement.” The department quietly launched the wideranging review last summer to examine GST rules from 1991 that have failed to keep pace with the galloping complexity of new financial services in Canada and abroad. The finance sector is generally exempt from the GST or HST, but certain associated services — called “supplies” in tax argot — may be taxable. And as the sector evolves rapidly, there’s deepening confusion about just what is owed to the Canada Revenue Agency, and on what services, for the value-added tax that is often harmonized with provincial tax as the HST. Canada’s insurance industry, for example, faces a $1-billion bill for back taxes by the end of this month, a GST liability critics say has been largely obscured for the last seven years. “The GST/HST, along with other value-added tax regimes worldwide, has struggled to keep up with the pace of change in the financial sector,” says one recent study commissioned by the Finance Department, obtained under the Access to Information Act. “While the exemption of financial services from GST/HST may have been politically and administratively expedient at first ... ambiguity about the scope of the exemption and about its application to new products and cross-border transactions have lead to extraordinary complexity and compliance challenges.” The department created a six-member team last year that has ordered a series of in-

depth studies, and has made several dozen presentations to finance industry stakeholders. KPMG was also hired to create a $170,000 database describing the myriad of “supplies” in the banking and investment sectors, for use in analyzing potential GST or HST payable. Another $73,500 report commissioned from Deloitte provides an indepth look at value-added taxes for the financial sector in Singapore, South Africa and Japan. Yet other detailed studies look at Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom, and at Canada’s insurance industry. Rubec says the review “is being conducted on a first-principles basis, with no pre-conceived outcome,” and that the team has not been given a deadline. “This is a long-term analytical exercise, and no public output is anticipated in the near future.” A University of Calgary economist, who advises the finance minister as part of an economic council, says an overhaul of the GST rule book is long overdue. “The GST is not as well-designed as it could be,” Jack Mintz said in an interview. “There’s a lot of exemptions. “All the special credits and preferences in the system (mean) the base is actually a lot

narrower than it should be, and that actually creates some of the difficulties.” Mintz says the Finance Department has started the overhaul by focusing on the financial sector because “it’s the area that has gotten the most pressure from the business community.” A tax partner at PricewaterhouseCoopers Canada, who has sounded alarms about revamped GST rules affecting the insurance industry, criticizes the “revenue neutral” goal. “To impose a condition that a bundle of changes for a policy upgrade be neutral is unfortunate, and precludes a best-for-Canada outcome, in my view,” Michael Firth said in an interview. “It’s like saying you can go white-water rafting, but only in the lounge.” The review team is thus prevented from tossing out recent GST legislative changes that hit the insurance sector with back taxes, which would be revenue negative, he said. But Mintz said he supports the goal of revenue neutrality, noting that an exercise that broadens the base of goods and services taxed by the GST could allow the government to lower the current rate while maintaining existing revenues. “Let’s fix problems but not try to raise revenues,” he said.

The auto industry is on a hiring spree as car makers and parts suppliers race to find engineers, technicians and factory workers to build the next generation of vehicles.

American auto industry about to go on hiring spree DETROIT — The auto industry is about to go on a hiring spree as car makers and parts suppliers race to find engineers, technicians and factory workers to build the next generation of vehicles. The new employees will be part of a larger, busier workforce. From coast to coast, the industry is in top gear. Factories are operating at about 95 per cent of capacity, and many are already running three shifts. As a result, some auto and parts companies are doing something they’ve been reluctant to consider since the recession: Adding floor space and spending millions of dollars on new equipment. “We’re really bumping up against the edge,” says Michael Robinet, managing director of IHS Automotive, which forecasts auto production. “So it really is brick-and-mortar time.” The auto industry’s stepped-up hiring will help sustain the nation’s job growth and help fuel consumer spending. On Friday, the government said U.S. employers added 175,000 jobs in May, roughly the monthly average for the past year and a sign of the economy’s resilience. At 7.6 per cent, U.S. unemployment remains well above the 5 per cent to 6 per cent typical of a healthy economy. Growth is still modest, in part because of higher taxes and government spending cuts that kicked in this year and weak overseas economies. But the housing market is strengthening, and U.S. consumer confidence has reached a five-year high. The auto industry’s outlook is bright. Vehicle sales for 2013 could reach 15.5 million, the highest in six years. To meet that demand, automakers must find more people. Hundreds of companies that make parts for automakers have to hire, too, just to keep up. “As volume goes up, we will really need to add heads,” says Mel Stephens, a spokesman for Lear Corp., which makes automotive seats. From January through May, automakers and parts companies hired 8,000 workers, a relatively slow rate. But the pace is picking up. The Center for Automotive Research expects the industry to add 35,000 over the full year. The hiring plans are widespread. Chrysler Group LLC, Honda Motor Co., General Motors Co., Mercedes-Benz and Ford Motor Co. plan to add more

than 13,000 people this year. Large parts companies such as Lear, BorgWarner Inc. and TRW Automotive Holdings Corp. are hiring at factories and research centres. Smaller suppliers are adding jobs as well. The auto business has helped keep the economy afloat while Americans wait for the rest of the business world to start hiring. Since 2009, 1 in every 4 manufacturing jobs added in the U.S. came in the auto industry, says Daniel Meckstroth, chief economist for the Manufacturers Alliance for Productivity and Innovation, a manufacturing trade group. The auto industry is just under 7 per cent of U.S. manufacturing jobs. Car companies and parts makers created 167,500 jobs from the end of the recession in June 2009 through May. At the same time, U.S. auto sales rose from a low point of 10.4 million in 2009 to an annual rate of more than 15 million so far this year. Chrysler’s comeback gave Jeff Caldwell the confidence to leave a human resources consulting firm. Caldwell joined the company in February as an assembly line supervisor at a Jeep Grand Cherokee factory in Detroit. He supervises 100 workers who build the SUV’s chassis. “I knew Chrysler was moving in the right direction,” says Caldwell, 29, who was born in Detroit and always had an interest in cars. “They kind of reinvented themselves, and I really wanted to get in while I could.” Smaller companies also are joining in. Automotive business at Waukesha Metal Products in Sussex, Wis., is so strong that the company is near its capacity to make metal parts for axles, drive shafts and interiors. It’s adding $1 million worth of equipment near Milwaukee and building a plant in Mexico to be closer to companies it supplies. Most industry analysts predict that U.S. auto sales will rise gradually during the next five years. Estimates for this year range from 15 million to 15.5 million, compared with 14.5 million a year ago. LMC Automotive, a Troy, Mich., forecasting firm, predicts that sales will gradually increase to 17 million in 2017. That level would be almost equal to the boom years of the late 1990s and early 2000s. Analysts say sales will climb as more people reach driving age.

Stroumbo starts anew with CNN OLD STYLE FOR A NEW GENERATION BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK — It’s a safe bet that George Stroumboulopoulos will be the first male CNN personality to wear two earrings and a skull ring from a designer who made one for Keith Richards. Stroumboulopoulos, whose new nighttime talk show premiered Sunday, is more curious than dangerous, though. The show gets a solid time slot for its debut, airing after the season finale of Anthony Bourdain’s successful Parts Unknown.

Then it will settle into a regular spot on Fridays at 11 p.m. Eastern for the summer and, if things go well, maybe beyond. It’s part of CNN’s attempt to branch out beyond news programming at certain times, represented most prominently by Bourdain’s show. The effort started before the arrival of new network boss Jeff Zucker — Stroumboulopoulos had his first contact with the network last summer before Zucker arrived — but the enthusiasm continued with the change in management.

Stroumboulopoulos (STRAHM’-boo-lahp-yoo-lus) hosts a nightly talk show on the CBC in Canada, where his friendly style seems to encourage celebrities to talk. “I hope that people pick up something new about the person I’m interviewing and find out a way to relate to them,” he said. “I want them to find a connection.” For CNN, the show represents an old style for a new generation. Stroumboulopoulos, 40, said his interest in politics was fu-

eled less by politicians than by listening to the Clash and Public Enemy. He’s eager to interview Snoop Lion, the former Snoop Dogg, on his show because he considers him such an important figure in hip-hop. Rap artist Wiz Khalifa, comic Martin Short and actor Keanu Reeves are the guests on his first show. Other confirmed interviews for the show’s 10-week run include Keanu Reeves, Martin Short, Betty White, Bill Maher, Sharon Stone and filmmaker Werner Herzog. The show will tape before

a studio audience in Los Angeles. Stroumboulopoulos said he’s not gunning for the job of CNN’s other general interview program, Piers Morgan, and said he likes the way Morgan conducts interviews. For the moment, he’ll fit the CNN show in with a schedule that includes the CBC show (which airs twice in the evening) and a weekly music and talk program he does for a CBS radio station. “This is what I do,” he said. “I don’t even have any dependents in my life. I don’t even have a plant.”

Rama Burshtein is first ultra-Orthodox woman to direct for general audience NEWS SERVICES WASHINGTON — It’s way past lunchtime inside a hushed Georgetown hotel lobby, and a film publicist is frantically calling restaurants. She has to find kosher food. Now. “It’s 3 and I just feel sooo bad,” she says, wiping away her smudged mascara. “The first place never showed.” This is an unusual challenge in an industry in which it would be more normal to meet diva demands for, say, all white food. But the request is for an unconventional film director: Rama Burshtein. She’s the first ultraOrthodox Jewish woman to write and direct a feature-length film for a general audience — a notable achievement since her highly insular community typically forbids watching secular television and movies. Fill the Void, opening in Washington this weekend, is also one of a small number of films to focus on an Orthodox religious community from within. It tells the story of Shira, a lovelorn brideto-be whose sister, Esther, has just died while giving birth. The 18-year-old protagonist has to choose between wedding her bereaved brother-in-law so he won’t leave the country with his newborn to marry someone else, or face letting down her grieving mother, who is pushing for the arrangement so she can keep her grandson nearby. If its themes of dutyversus-romance and family-versus-freedom sound a little like a Jane Austen plot, then it feels a little bit like one, too. Except this time, the setting is the cloistered

Rama Burshtein world of Israeli Hasidic Judaism. Burshtein transports viewers into the rhythms and rituals of the ultraOrthodox, with scenes of exuberant, music-filled Sabbaths and strongwilled women, like Shira’s disabled, spinster aunt. “I’m a storyteller more than anything, and I realized that we had no cultural voice. Most of the films about the community are done by outsiders and are rooted in conflicts between the religious and the secular,” says Burshtein, 45, a solidly built — “okay, zaftig,” she offers — mother of four who was born in New York and lives in Israel. “I wanted to tell a deeply human story.” The film was released last year in Israel during a particularly intense period of political and social tension between secular and ultra-Orthodox Hasidic Jews, known as Haredim inside Israel. Despite the acrimony, the film was Israel’s submission in the foreignlanguage category for the Academy Awards, and it won seven prizes at the Ophirs, the Israeli Oscars. Burshtein might be the ideal person to bring outsiders into the Orthodox world. She is what’s known as

(Before she became religious, she graduated in 1995 from the Sam Spiegel Film and Television School in Jerusalem, the most prestigious institution of its kind in the country.) Many baal teshuvas have influenced art and music, especially inside Israel, said Rabbi Shmuel Herzfeld, who leads the Washington synagogue Ohev Sholom, which is Orthodox. Most famously, perhaps, was Hasidic reggae-rapper Matisyahu, who last year stirred controversy by shaving his beard, a sign of piety among Hasidic men. One baal teshuva actress is Mayim Bialik, the child star of the 1990s sitcom Blossom who is now on The Big Bang Theory. “It’s this phenomenon where you have grown up with a certain skill and passion, and you become religious and want to use your skills,” Herzfeld said. “There’s a great energy around this in Israel.” But can art and religious fervor exist side by side, without compromising each other or having to censor unflattering truths? “Sometimes,” Burshtein said. “But not always. It’s really about what drives you to make art. Is it about, come see me, just for the attention? Or is it trying to create something from a deep place?” Most baal teshuva artists aren’t as religious as Burshtein. Burshtein and her bearded husband, Aharon, a ritual circumciser — or mohel — caused double-takes when they appeared on the red carpet at last year’s Venice International Film Festival, where newcomer and secular actress Hadas Yaron won a best actress award for her portrayal of the conflicted Shira in Fill the Void. “We certainly didn’t look like the typical redcarpet types,” Burshtein chuckled. Today, she’s wearing a maroon coiled scarf over her hair and a dress that covers her knees, elbows and collarbone — as is commanded in Haredi modesty laws — along with girly flats with big bows. “My voice for this film would not be a fighting voice, or a loud voice,” she says, patiently waiting for that late lunch. “I’m not a subversive looking for a revolution. I wanted to tell this family’s very difficult story.” She first overheard the story her movie is based on at a hospital, where an Orthodox matchmaker was talking about a sister who was debating whether to marry her brother-inlaw. Emily Wax writes for the Washington Post.

Colourful artwork by three talented Central Alberta students was selected as a decorative cover page for a Senate Aboriginal Committee report. The art was created by Amber Gordon, Alesian Larocque and Destiny Auger during a finger-painting night at the Buffalo Lake Cultural Interpretive Centre. Senators visited the centre in the fall of 2012 as part of a study on Métis identity and saw the artwork on the wall. When deciding on a report cover, and reviewing photos from all the communities they visited, this painting was selected because senators felt it captured the essence of the report, The People Who Own Themselves: Recognition of Métis Identity in Canada.

Malkovich hailed as hero THE CANADIAN PRESS A 77 year old Ohio man says he‘ll be forever grateful to actor John Malkovich for coming to his rescue during a frightening incident in Toronto. The Toronto Star reports Jim Walpole and his wife Marilyn, 79 were visiting the city on Thursday. Walpole told the newspaper they‘d just finished dinner at a downtown restaurant and were walking back to the King Edward hotel when he tripped and fell on a piece of scaffolding that gashed his neck. Malkovich just happened to be standing nearby and Walpole says the acclaimed actor rushed to his aid, applying pressure to his wound to stop the flow of blood until paramedics arrived.

RDC students win top honours at film awards Two Red Deer College students won top honours at the Alberta Film and Television Awards. Amanda Trimble and Shawn Knievel received the Rosie award for Best Student Production for the film Dear 604/ Cher 604, which they co-produced. The awards were given recently in a ceremony in at Edmonton’s Winspear Centre. “The Rosies are the highest level of professional recognition in Alberta,” said Don Armstrong, a Motion Picture Arts instructor. “We are tremendously proud of Shawn and Amanda.” RDC students received a record 17 nominations for Rosies this year for commercials, dramas, made-for-TV mini-serials, acting, cinematography and musical scores. Many of these nominees are current or former students of the Motion Picture Arts program. It offers intensive, post-diploma training for college graduates and industry professionals.

The Broken Chain We little knew that morning that God Was going to call your name. In life we loved you dearly, In death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you, You did not go alone; For part of us went with you, The day God called you home. You left us peaceful memories, Your love is still our guide; And though we cannot see you, You are always at our side. Our family chain is broken, And nothing seems the same; But as God calls us one by one, The chain will link again.

by THE ASSOCIATED PRESS SEOUL, South Korea — The rival Koreas agreed Monday to hold seniorlevel talks this week in Seoul, a breakthrough of sorts after Pyongyang’s recent threats of nuclear war and Seoul’s vows of counterstrikes. The two-day meeting starting Wednesday will focus on stalled cooperation projects, including the resumption of operations at a jointly-run factory park near the border in North Korea that was the last remaining symbol of inter-Korean rapprochement until Pyongyang shut the border and pulled out its workers this spring during a period of heightened tensions that followed its February nuclear test. The details were ironed out in a nearly 17-hour negotiating session by lower-level officials. It was the first such meeting of its kind on the Korean Peninsula in more than two years and took place at the village of Panmunjom on their heavily armed border, where the armistice ending the threeyear Korean War was signed 60 years ago next month. That truce has never been replaced with a peace treaty, leaving the Korean Peninsula technically at war. The agreement to hold the talks was announced in a statement early Monday by South Korea’s Unification Ministry. North Korea’s official news agency, KCNA, also reported the agreement. Dialogue at any level marks an improvement in the countries’ abysmal ties. The last several years have seen North Korean nuclear tests, long-range rocket launches and attacks blamed on the North that killed 50 South Koreans in 2010. The meeting Wednesday will also include discussions on resuming South Korean tours to a North Korean mountain resort, the reunion of separated families and other humanitarian issues, officials said. The issue most crucial to Washington, however — a

run factory park at the North Korean border town of Kaesong and vowed to ramp up production of nuclear bomb fuel. Seoul withdrew its last personnel from Kaesong in May. The summit marks a political and diplomatic victory for South Korean President Park Geun-hye, who took office in February and has maintained through the heightened tensions a policy that combines vows of strong counter-action to any North Korea provocation with efforts to build trust and re-establish dialogue. Representatives of the rival Koreas met on the peninsula in February 2011 and their nuclear envoys met in Beijing later that year, but government officials from both sides have not met since. Sunday’s meeting follows a summit by U.S. President Barack Obama and Chinese President Xi Jinping in California in which the White House said “quite a bit of alignment” was found on North Korea, including an agreement that Pyongyang has to abandon its nuclear weapons aspirations. China provides a lifeline for a North Korea struggling with energy and other economic needs, and views stability in Pyongyang as crucial for its own economy and border security. But after Pyongyang’s nuclear test in February, China tightened its cross-border trade inspections and banned its state banks from dealing with North Korea’s Foreign Trade Bank. North Korean leader Kim Jong Un late last month sent to China his special envoy, who reportedly told Xi that Pyongyang was willing to return to dialogue. President Park will travel to Beijing to meet Xi later this month. North Korea was probably motivated to hold talks with Seoul because it wants to ease a sense of crisis over its deepening isolation from the rest of the world, including ally China, said Chang Yong-seok, a senior researcher at Seoul National University’s Institute for Peace and Unification Studies.

push to persuade North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons — isn’t set to be discussed. While there was broad agreement, Seoul’s Unification Ministry said in a statement, sticking points arose over the delegation heads and the agenda. Seoul will send its top official for inter-Korean affairs while Pyongyang said it would send a senior-level government official, without elaborating. North Korea said the two sides would additionally discuss how to jointly commemorate past inter-Korean statements, including one settled during a landmark 2000 summit between the countries’ leaders, civilian exchanges and other joint collaboration matters, according to the South Korean ministry’s statement . While it wasn’t immediately clear who’ll lead the North Korea side, a minister-level summit between the Koreas has not happened since 2007. Analysts express wariness about North Korea’s intentions, with some seeing the interest in dialogue as part of a pattern where Pyongyang follows aggressive rhetoric and provocations with diplomatic efforts to trade an easing of tension for outside concessions. Pyongyang is trying to improve ties with Seoul because it very much wants dialogue with the United States, which could give the North aid, ease international sanctions and improve its economy in return for concessions, Kim Yong-hyun, a professor of North Korea studies at Dongguk University in Seoul, said. Nuclear matters won’t be on the table, Kim said, because Pyongyang wants issues related to its pursuit of atomic weapons resolved through talks with Washington or in broader, nowstalled international disarmament negotiations. After U.N. sanctions were strengthened following North Korea’s third nuclear test in February, Pyongyang threatened nuclear war and missile strikes against Seoul and Washington, pulled its workers from the jointly

Adana on Saturday night, clashes have been reported between Erdogan supporters and protesters. Protests have been held in 78 cities across the country since May 31, sparked by a violent police crackdown on a peaceful protest objecting to the redevelopment of Taksim Square and its Gezi Park. They have since morphed into a general denunciation of what many see as Erdogan’s increasingly authoritarian ways after a decade in power, and as an attempt to impose his conservative, religious mores in a country governed by secular laws. The protests have attracted a diverse crowd from all social backgrounds and age groups. Three people have died, including a police officer in Adana who fell into an underpass under construction while chasing demonstrators. More than 4,300 protesters have sought medical treatment, human rights groups have said. “We showed patience but our patience has its limits,” Erdogan told a crowd of thousands of party supporters who turned out to cheer his arrival at Ankara airport on Sunday, in the third of

about seven speeches given through the afternoon and evening. Looking much like a candidate on a campaign trail, Erdogan delivered speeches at two airports, a sports hall, two Ankara districts and atop a bridge before heading to his party headquarters. At each, thousands of supporters turned out to cheer him. “Stand firm, don’t yield, Turkey is with you,” they chanted. Erdogan called repeatedly for the protests to end. “I call on my brothers who are duped: please put an end to your actions. Look, we have come to these days with patience. As a prime minister I say: enough!” In a separate speech, he added: “Otherwise I will have to speak the language you understand. Patience has an end. You cannot show Turkey as a country where there is an environment of terror.” As he spoke, tens of thousands of protesters turned out in Istanbul’s Taksim Square, while thousands more turned out on the seafront in the western coastal city of Izmir, television footage showed. In the capital,

police used water cannon to break up a gathering by thousands of demonstrators in Ankara’s Kizilay Square. Clashes also broke out between about 2,000 protesters and riot police in Sultangazi, a troubled neighbourhood on the outskirts of Istanbul populated mainly by Kurds and Alevis. Erdogan once again belittled the protesters, calling them “capulcu,” the Turkish word for vandals. “If you look in the dictionary, you will see how right a description this is,” he said. “Those who burn and destroy are called capulcu. Those who back them are of the same family.” The protesters have turned Erdogan’s label of them as “capulcu” into a humorous retort, printing stickers with the word, scrawling it on their tents and uploading music videos onto social network sites. “All they do is to break and destroy, to attack public buildings ... They didn’t stop at that,” Erdogan said. “They attacked daughters who wear headscarves. They entered Dolmabahce mosque with their beer bottles and their shoes.”

Thousand evacuate as floods continue to wreak havok on central Europe by THE ASSOCIATED PRESS BERLIN — Thousands of people have been evacuated from their homes in a region of eastern Germany where the Elbe river has flooded and burst through a dam, while swollen Danube was approaching Budapest where soldiers and volunteers are building flood walls, officials said Sunday. Parts of the south and north ends of the Hungarian capital are already under water, but the city’s downtown area, including the parliament building and several large hotels near the river bank, are seemingly out of direct danger as flood walls were built to a height of 30.5 feet (9.30 metres). Officials said nearly 8,000 volunteers and specialized crews in Budapest had strengthened flood walls by packing and placing one million sand bags and many are also monitoring defences for any leaks. At least 21 flood-related deaths have been reported in central Europe, as rivers such as the Danube, the Elbe and the Vlatava have overflowed after a week of heavy rains and caused extensive damage in central and southern Germany, the Czech Republic, Austria,

Slovakia and Hungary. The latest fatality was an 80-year-old man who died of a heart attack in Austria on Sunday while cleaning up debris caused by flooding, the German news agency dpa reported. In Magdeburg, the state capital of Saxony-Anhalt in eastern Germany, more than 23,000 residents had to leave their homes Sunday afternoon after many streets and buildings were flooded and electricity was shut off, dpa said. The neighbourhood of Rothensee was especially hard-hit by the floods of the Elbe river — residents were being evacuated with tanks, trucks and buses. “Rothensee is filling up like a bathtub,” Germany army spokesman Andre Sabzog told dpa. Around 700 soldiers were trying frantically to build a dam of sandbags around a power substation. A flooding of the substation would not only leave thousands of households without water, but also lead to a breakdown of the neighbourhood’s dewatering pumps. Another 8,000 people had been evacuated from the town of Aken and its neighbouring villages after a dam on the Elbe river broke Saturday, police spokesman Uwe Holz said.

Father, brother among victims in Santa Monica shooting rampage


SANTA MONICA, Calif. — A woman who was critically wounded in the Santa Monica shooting spree died Sunday, bringing the total number of victims killed by the gunman to five. Marcela Franco, 26, died of her injuries at UCLA Medical Center, according to Santa Monica College spokeswoman Tricia Ramos. Franco had been a passenger in a Ford Explorer driven by her father, campus groundskeeper Carlos Navarro Franco, 68, who also was killed in Friday’s attack. They were going to the school to buy textbooks for classes the young woman was enrolled in for the summer, president Chui L. Tsang said in a statement posted on the college’s website. “Her family was with her by her side” when she died, Tsang said. Police Sgt. Richard Lewis confirmed the suspect’s identity Sunday as John Zawahri. Meanwhile, investigators trying to determine why he planned the shooting spree focused on a deadly act of domestic violence that touched off the mayhem. The heavily armed man’s attack against his father and older brother at their home led to the violence in Santa Monica streets, lasting just a matter of minutes until he was shot to death in a chaotic scene at the college library by police. Authorities had not immediately named the shooter or the two men found dead in the house because next of kin was out of the country and hadn’t been notified. Lewis said his name was released Sunday after his mother cut her trip short and came back to the country. Lewis said she was being interviewed by investigators. Investigators were looking at family connections to find a motive because the killer’s father and brother were the first victims, an official briefed on the probe who requested anonymity because he wasn’t authorized to speak publicly told The Associated Press. The husband of a woman shot during the rampage said a bullet nicked his wife’s ear and she’ll likely have to live with shrapnel in her shoulder. Debra Lynn Fine, 50, was released in good condition late Saturday from Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, according to a hospital statement. Bullets missed his wife’s vital organs by inches, Russell Fine told the AP Sunday. “She will have some shrapnel for the rest of her life,” he said. “One bullet clipped her right ear and took some small bit with it. She will probably have some reconstructive surgery for that.” She was resting at home. The killer, who died a day shy of his 24th birthday, was connected to the home that went up in flames after the first shootings, said police Chief Jacqueline Seabrooks. His father, identified as 55-year-old Samir Zawahri, and 24-year-old brother Christopher, lived in the house.

BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON — A 29-yearold contractor who claims to have worked at the National Security Agency and the CIA was revealed Sunday as the source of disclosures about the U.S. government’s secret surveillance programs, risking prosecution by the U.S. government. The leaks have reopened the post-Sept. 11, 2001, debate about privacy concerns versus heightened measure to protect against terrorist attacks, and led the NSA to ask the Justice Department to conduct a criminal investigation into the leaks. The Guardian, the first paper to disclose the documents, said it was publishing the identity of Edward Snowden, a former technical assistant for the CIA and current employee of defence contractor Booz Allen Hamilton, at his own request. “My sole motive is to inform the public as to that which is done in their name and that which is done against them,” Snowden told the newspaper. Stories in The Guardian and The Washington Post published over the last week revealed two surveillance programs. One of them is a phone records monitoring program in which the NSA gathers hundreds of millions of U.S. phone records each day, creating a database through which it can learn whether terror suspects have been in contact with people in the U.S. The Obama administration says the NSA program does not listen to actual conversations. Separately, an Internet scouring program, code-named PRISM, allows the NSA and FBI to tap directly into nine U.S. Internet companies to gather all Internet usage — audio, video, photographs, emails and searches. The effort is

The Guardian identified Snowden as a source for its reports on intelligence programs after he asked the newspaper to do so on Sunday. designed to detect suspicious behaviour that begins overseas. Snowden said claims the programs are secure are not true. “Any analyst at any time can target anyone. Any selector. Anywhere. Where those communications will be picked up depends on the range of those sensor networks and the authority that that analyst is empowered with,” Snowden said, in accompanying video on the Guardian’s website. “Not all analysts have the power to target anything. But I, sitting at my desk, had the authority to wiretap anyone, from you or your accountant to a federal judge to even the president if I had a personal email.” He told the Post that he would

“ask for asylum from any countries that believe in free speech and oppose the victimization of global privacy” in an interview from Hong Kong, where he is staying. “I’m not going to hide,” Snowden told the Post. “Allowing the U.S. government to intimidate its people with threats of retaliation for revealing wrongdoing is contrary to the public interest.” The Post declined to elaborate on its reporting about Snowden. The spokesman for the Director of National Intelligence said intelligence officials are “currently reviewing the damage that has been done by these recent disclosures,” adding that “Any person who has a security clearance knows that he or she has an obligation to protect classified information and abide by the law.” He referred further comment to the Justice Department. In a statement, Booz Allen confirmed that Snowden “has been an employee of our firm for less than 3 months, assigned to a team in Hawaii.” The statement said if the news reports of what he has leaked prove accurate, “this action represents a grave violation of the code of conduct,” and the company promised to work closely with authorities on the investigation. Director of National Intelligence James Clapper has decried the revelation of the intelligencegathering programs as reckless and said it has done “huge, grave damage.” In recent days, he took the rare step of declassifying some details about them to respond to media reports about counterterrorism techniques employed by the government. Snowden told The Guardian that he lacked a high school diploma and enlisted in the U.S. Army until he was discharged because of an injury, and later worked as a security guard with the NSA.

NASA’s Mars rover heading to new destination OPPORTUNITY ROVER WELL AHEAD OF NEXT MARTIAN WINTER BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LOS ANGELES — NASA’s Opportunity rover is rolling across the Martian surface again, leaving behind a clayrich rock in search of more discoveries. Mission managers said Friday that the plan calls for arriving at its new destination — 1 ½ miles (2 kilometres) to the south — by August so that the solar-powered rover can be in a favourable spot before the next Martian winter. Opportunity has been exploring Endeavour Crater since 2011. It’s the largest of five craters examined by the sixwheel rover so far and contains some of the oldest deposits dating back to the first billion years of Mars’ history. Before trekking off last month, Opportunity used a grinder to scrape away the top layer of a light-colored rock for a peek inside. The rock was so lumpy and covered with crud that it took the rover several tries to crack open its secrets. Unlike other rocks that Opportunity inspected during the past nine years, the latest told a different story: It contained clay minerals, a sign that water coursed through it, and formed in an environment that might have been suitable for microbes. Previous rock studies by Opportunity pointed to a watery past on Mars, but scientists said the water was acidic. “This is water you can drink,” said mission chief scientist Steve Squyres of Cornell University.


This image provided by NASA shows a panoramic view from NASA’s Mars Exploration rover Opportunity of “Solander Point.” The space agency said Friday June 7, 2013, the six-wheel, solar-powered rover is driving to a new spot in Endeavour Crater after spending 20 months at a site brimming with evidence of water-altered rocks. Since landing on opposite ends of the red planet in 2004, Opportunity and its twin, Spirit, have impressed scientists with their longevity. Both outlasted their original, three-month warranty. While Opportunity continues to

plow ahead, Spirit’s mission came to an end when it got stuck in sand and stopped communicating in 2010. Project manager John Callas said Opportunity showed signs of wear, but was otherwise in good health. It recently experienced a bout of amnesia

with its flash memory, but Callas said it was not serious. Opportunity is not the only Mars rover on the move. Earlier this week, NASA said its newest rover, Curiosity, will soon head to a Martian mountain.

Politics get dirty as South African protesters lob excrement BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS JOHANNESBURG, South Africa — It takes mudslinging to another level. Last week, protesters tossed human excrement at a convoy carrying the leader of South Africa’s main opposition party, who seeks to court followers of the ruling African National Congress ahead of national elections next year. Tuesday’s unsavoury salvo did not directly hit Helen Zille, head of the Democratic Alliance who is also the premier of the Western Cape, the only one of nine South African provinces that is not run by the ANC. On Monday, protesters dumped the contents of portable toilets on the steps of the Western Cape legislature in a backlash against the sanitation policy of Zille’s administration, which, in the absence of sewage facilities in some poor and crowded townships, offers portable flush toilets to shack dwellers at no cost. The harshest critics of Zille — whom she dismisses as political grandstanders — say this policy smacks of apartheid, the system under which the best resources were reserved for the minority whites and blacks were confined to areas with inferior services. Politicians on both sides of the political divide say they are still dealing with the legacy of “apartheid geography,” though critics say official incompetence is also slowing progress. In a statement, the ANC’s youth league condemned the dumping of excrement at the Western Cape legislature, and said it would investigate a report that at least one member was involved. It said, however, that grievances over the quality of services in the Western Cape are genuine and that some people there are compelled to use what it described as a “dehumanizing ’glorified bucket system,’ which was said to replace the notorious open toilets.” The bucket system, whereby people use buckets to dispose of excrement, is associated with the indignities of apartheid, which ended in 1994. All-race elections in that year brought anti-apartheid leader Nelson Mandela to the presidency, opening an era of mostly peaceful politics but they seem to be becoming more barbed with so many in this nation of more than 50 million still lacking decent living conditions and opportunities. Zille’s convoy was splattered with feces when she was departing an event in Khayelitsha township in Cape Town, one of more than 200 settlements around Cape Town, to promote environmental living. A protest allegedly including at least one member of the ANC’s youth league had been building outside the venue before the incident. “What can I say? Another day at the office,” Zille said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press. She said such protests are part of a campaign by ANC supporters to make the Western Cape seem “ungovernable” in the run-up to national elections next year, and ignore data showing the province has a leading sanitation record in the country. Zille defended the sanitation policy, saying the city picks up the waste


In this photo taken Tuesday June 4, 2013, protesters toss human waste at a vehicle carrying opposition Democratic Alliance (DA) leader and Western Cape premier, Hellen Zille, unseen, in the Khayelitsha township, Cape Town, South Africa, Tuesday, June 4, 2013. from the toilet tanks two or three times a week, making the service safe and hygienic. “Because land gets occupied at such a rate, and so densely, it is almost impossible to retrofit the land with proper services,” said Zille, noting that Cape Town had grown by 30 per cent

between the censuses in 2001 and 2011. But Magasela Mzobe, national coordinator of the ANC youth league, said the Western Cape administration was not collecting waste on time as it had promised. Zille, 62, was a muckraking journalist who helped expose evidence of a

police coverup in the death of antiapartheid activist Steve Biko in 1977, and received death threats for her work. In her new David-versus-Goliath venture, she hopes to capitalize on creeping discontent with the ruling party, whose credentials as a liberation movement once led by Mandela have been tarnished by corruption, unemployment and other problems. Toilets are a hot-button issue in South Africa, which is struggling to provide services to many frustrated citizens in a country with a wide gap between rich and poor, despite expectations that the end of apartheid would improve the quality and dignity of life for all. Some reports about open latrines and other dismal privies in South Africa’s townships have drawn the scrutiny of the country’s human rights commission, which considers poor sanitation to be a violation of basic rights. According to census data, the proportion of households with flush toilets connected to the sewage system increased from 49.1 per cent in 2001 to 57 per cent a decade later. During the same period, the households using the bucket toilet system halved to 2.1 per cent. Last month, Tokyo Sexwale, South Africa’s minister for human settlements, said it is unacceptable that some government entities and municipalities have failed to provide proper sanitation even after receiving funds. He cited “recent scandalous cases” in the Western Cape and the Free State, which is run by the ruling party to which Sexwale belongs. “There is a serious stench of the bucket system in some parts of the country,” he said.
