Murder victim found in freezer BY PAUL COWLEY ADVOCATE STAFF A Red Deer murder victim whose body was found in his residence is believed to have been killed during a break and enter, say police. The body of Curtis Leroy Rangen, 43, of Red Deer was found in a chest freezer during a regularly scheduled welfare check by mental health workers on May 3 at a Potter’s Hands Housing apartment M a r k William building at 61st Bitterman Street and 58th Avenue in Riverside Meadows. Police are not saying how he died or why a first-degree murder charge was laid. Rangen does not appear to have known his attacker. Police believe he died between April 30 and May 1. “Certainly at this point we don’t believe there was any previous relationship,” said Red Deer RCMP Supt. Warren Dosko at a Thursday afternoon news conference in Red Deer. An intensive investigation was launched involving up to 40 police officers and thousands of hours of work. Officers involved included those with the Alberta Law Enforcement Response Teams (ALERT), a 400-strong force created in 2006 to target the most serious crimes, said Dosko. A suspect was tracked to Kamloops, where RCMP arrested him. Mark William Bitterman, 30, of no fixed address has been charged with first-degree murder in connection with Rangen’s death. He is in custody and was scheduled to make his first court appearance in Red Deer today. Rangen’s death is the city’s second confirmed homicide this year. On Jan. 1, Lloyd Robert Sarson, 25, of no fixed address, was found dead as a result of gunshot wounds in a vehicle in an alley in Eastview. A Canada-wide warrant has been issued for a 17-yearold Manitoba boy. RCMP Sgt. Ryan Singleton, of Calgary’s major crimes unit, said it is not believed that two others arrested on June 13 in Kamloops along with Bitterman were involved in Rangen’s death. “We believe they are associates of Mr. Bitterman. We do not believe that they were involved in this homicide at all. “We believe it was a targeted break and enter to a residence,” said Singleton.

A2 RED DEER ADVOCATE Friday, June 21, 2013

Sundre evacuates as river level rises TOWN DECLARES A STATE OF EMERGENCY BY LANA MICHELIN AND PAUL COWLEY ADVOCATE STAFF More than 50 homes and an RV park were evacuated in Sundre as the town declares a state of emergency due to fast-rising river levels. Dykes created in the 1970s and ’80s to safeguard the community are expected to be breached in the next 24 to 32 hours, if rainfall continues to melt snow at the headwaters of the Red Deer River, said Mayor Annette Clews, who noted this was determined at about 11 a.m. Thursday. “Within the next 24 hours, we could be in serious danger,” added Clews. The mayor was working to ensure that the town’s Emergency Response Plan was being followed as police and emergency crews went door-to-door asking residents of the low-lying east side of the town to leave their homes because of the potential for flooding. Clews said the occupants of some 50 homes are being asked to stay with relatives or relocate to a temporary shelter at Olds College. The Riverside RV Park in the town’s southwest is also under a mandatory evacuation order. Clews said about four or five of the RV lots hold permanent homes. She didn’t know how many recreational vehicles were in the temporary lots. Around 6 p.m. the evacuation order was extended to a block west and south of the downtown intersection. Municipal staff and volunteers of the town of 2,700 residents were busy sandbagging to shore up Sundre’s infrastructure. Clews said the river has not yet overflowed its banks but is running very high. If the heavy rain continues, she said the town will be jeopardized. “A lot of areas are getting saturated, but the river itself is the danger ... we would like people to stay away from the river.” Town officials are closely monitoring river levels upstream of Sundre. Coun. Myron Thompson said his wife, Dorothy,

some of her friends and a number of local seniors are among those who have left. Thompson said Alberta Environment has already told them to expect higher flood levels than in 2005, when portions of the town, and its airport were left under water. Thompson said based on what he saw at the main bridge in town he wouldn’t be surprised. “There’s a ton of water going under there right now and it’s going at a mighty fast pace.” Local politicians have lobbied the province for years to address erosion problems and protect banks from overflowing, he said. Even a dam upstream has been suggested to control spring runoff. “This is exactly what we’ve been fighting for for years. Get that upstream work done.” Mountain View County declared a state of emergency a couple hours after Sundre and issued mandatory evacuations for residents southwest and east of Sundre along River Road and along the Red Deer River. The county has the same evacuation plan as Sundre. Ryan Morrison, director of emergency management, said as of 7 p.m. about 30 people have left these areas and about 27 showed up at the temporary shelter. Mountain View County Coun. Paddy Munro said his son went out to the river and reported that water had already found its way around a small berm built by the county and was creeping across low-lying areas to the RV resort and airport. A number of county roads were closed because of rising water. Just outside Sundre, landowner Wayne Johnston said the water has already covered low-lying areas and surrounds a pump jack below his home. Earlier on Thursday, the rising waters seemed to have found some of the oil left over from a spill a year ago a short distance upstream. A Sundre Petroleum Operators Group representative phoned him in the morning to tell him an “oil sheen” had been spotted on the river.

Red Deer declares state of emergency


A state of emergency is in effect for Red Deer. The warning was issued at 8 p.m. following a flood warning that was issued upon receiving notice that Alberta Environment is to release a significant amount of water from the Dickson Dam. Tara Shand, a city public affairs officer, said no specific time was given for when the “significant amount of water” would be released. River levels are expected to reach maximum levels at approximately noon today. The City of Red Deer activated its Emergency Operations Centre at 5:30 p.m. and personnel are on standby and are monitoring the potential for flooding based on information from Alberta Environment, as well as reviewing and enacting parts of its emergency response plans. The city has also closed access to its major trail heads and warns citizens to stay off all of the trails. The city has closed access to the CPR Bridge due to high river volumes. It is not safe to be on or close to this bridge. Residents are reminded to stay off the river and away from river banks. In the event of flooding, the city recommends residents take the following precautions: ● Ensure your basement faucets, outside gas valve and electricity are shut off. ● If the area around the fuse box or circuit breaker is wet, stand on a dry board and shut off the power with a dry wooden stick. ● Check your basement sump pumps periodically for water and make sure the pumps are working. ● Stay away from streamsides and warn children of the dangers of fast-moving water. ● Avoid using rivers and streams in the Red Deer area for recreational purposes. Cyclists and pedestrians should beware of water covered roads and pathways and should not attempt to travel on or cross a flooded roadway. Stay tuned to the city’s website at, as well as local radio stations, Facebook and Twitter (@CityofRedDeer) accounts for information and updates. Updates are also available by calling the Emergency Hotline at 403-342-8132, 24 hours-a-day.

The river is running so fast now he doubts there is anything to see. “It’s cleaning it up.” Red Deer County has warned residents to stay away from the Red Deer and Little Red Deer Rivers, and will post regular updates on its website www. Alberta Municipal Affairs Minister Doug Griffiths stated at a news conference Thursday that Environment Canada rain forecasts will have a big bearing on how the situation is handled. “With Mother Nature, things change quickly and we have to be prepared for that.” So far, 12 Alberta municipalities have issued states of emergency, although they are all dealing with different crises — from very high rivers to overflowing banks and in some cases, flooded roads. The campground at Red Lodge Provincial Park, near Bowden, was evacuated on Thursday. The park was also closed after Alberta’s river forecast centre upgraded their flow advisory for the Little Red Deer River to 300 cubic metres per second, compared to the normal flow of 15 cubic metres per second. Griffiths said Calgary issued a State of Emergency because its river levels were as high as during the flood of 2005. The military is on stand-by to assist if the flooding situations moves from a crisis to a disaster, said Griffiths. But as of Thursday afternoon, there was no need to mobilize soldiers — although Griffiths said some military representatives, as well as members of all government departments, are part of the Provincial Operations Centre that’s overseeing the crisis. Griffiths praised the actions of local police, firefighters and other emergency workers for handling precarious flooding situations in the various Alberta municipalities.

Patricia Neely. Town spokesperson Joan Botkin said the rescue boats were struggling with a strong current, but added, “that’s our priority. Right now it is ‘Save the people. Get the residents out of there.”’ Danielle Smith, a Highwood resident and Wildrose Opposition leader

in the legislature, said she and other residents frantically sandbagged around the hospital, but could not keep water from rushing past the doors, forcing patients to higher floors. “I’ve been talking to people who have been here for 35 years or more who saw the 2005 flood, who saw the 1995 flood, and say this is way worse,” Smith told a radio station in Calgary.


er and wider. “All you can hear is like boulders and trees. I watched a refrigerator go by, I watched a shed go by, I watched couches go by. It’s insane.” The flooding was particularly destructive in communities just south of Calgary such as High River, Turner Valley and Black Diamond, where the Highwood River swept away two people. “One female adult had been stranded on a trailer and also a second adult male had been stranded on a nearby flatbed,” said Cam Heke of STARS air ambulance. “We did respond to the area. The female adult was no longer on the trailer and was missing. We did conduct a search along the river and we were unable to locate that missing person. “However, the male adult was on the trailer and local emergency services with another helicopter organization ... were able to rescue that man.” In High River, where residents were under a mandatory evacuation order by late Thursday, the water trapped residents in their cars and forced others to flee to the rooftops of their homes. Streets became tributaries, swamping vehicles. Randy Livie said he came into town to help a friend and almost didn’t get out. “It was over my hood,” he said. “There was a jeep in front of me and he stalled out. “There was a minivan that went in front of me. He stalled out. This other car he came in and he started floating away — he bailed out. He had crutches. A truck pulled up and helped him out. It’s just wild down there.” The river carried boats and trees into bridge abutments, he said. High River Mounties were asking that people with motorboats help rescue at least a dozen stranded homeowners. “We have people on their rooftops who were unable to evacuate fast

fixed address, has been charged with numerous Criminal Code charges. Mazzei and Poitra both appeared in Red Deer court on Thursday. They will remain in custody until their next court appearance on July 3. All three face charges of robbery with a firearm, extortion with a firearm, kidnapping with a firearm, forcible confinement, uttering threats, theft over $5,000, unauthorized possession of a firearm, use of an imitation firearm in the commission of an indictable offence and use of a firearm while committing an indictable offence. Police allege that in two instances, men contacted a female from an online website and set up a location and time to meet with them. Once the men arrived at the meeting place, two male suspects brandishing a knife or firearm would steal money, credit cards and in one instance a vehicle from the victim. Police said during one of those robberies, a male was held against his will for an extended period before escaping and contacting police.


Torrential rains and widespread flooding throughout southern Alberta on Thursday washed out roads and bridges, sent residents scurrying for safety, and delivered up surreal scenes of cars, couches and refrigerators just floating away. The RCMP put out a call for help to the Canadian Armed Forces, which sent in two helicopters and a Hercules aircraft to help extract people stranded by water. Officials with the City of Calgary said as many as 100,000 people in lowlying neighbourhoods could be forced from their homes due to heavy flooding, an evacuation that would take place in stages over the next few days. Bruce Burrell, director of the Calgary Emergency Management Agency, said water levels on the Bow River aren’t expected to subside until Saturday afternoon. “Depending on the extent of flooding we experience overnight, there may be areas of the city where people are not going to be able to get into until the weekend,” he told a news conference. Burrell said they suggested that workers in downtown Calgary, which borders on the river, leave work early Thursday if they live in threatened areas, so they could prepare to evacuate. Other workers were advised to consider staying late so as to lighten the rush-hour load on roads that might be needed for evacuations. But as the evening progressed, many downtown neighbourhoods were ordered evacuated, and there was fear that many businesses and restaurants would be vulnerable to flooding. It also raised the possibility that downtown Calgary could resemble a ghost town on Friday. Evacuees were being asked to stay with friends or relatives, though recreation centres were being set up to accommodate those who had no place to go. They were also asked to mark their front doors with a giant “X” so that first responders wouldn’t have to stop at homes that were already emptied. The Calgary Zoo, located on St. George’s Island, shut down in the afternoon and said it would also be closed Friday. “Rest assured Animal Care are working closely with our facilities team to ensure the safety of all of our animals during this period of flood risk and are following our established emergency protocols,” the zoo said on its website. The Bow River Basin was battered with up to 100 mm of rain. There were flashpoints of chaos from Banff and Canmore and Crowsnest Pass in the Rockies, to Calgary and beyond in the north and south to Lethbridge. “I woke up at about three o’clock in morning to the sound of this kind of rumbling and it was the creek,” said Wade Graham, a resident of the mountain town of Canmore, west of Calgary. “At first it was just intense, pretty powerful, amazing thing to watch. As daylight came, it just got bigger and bigger and wider and wider, and it’s still getting bigger and bigger and wid-

Energy security at risk THE CHOICES MADE TODAY ON ENERGY POLICY WILL HAVE AN IMPACT ON BOTH THE FUTURE OF CANADA’S AND THE GLOBE’S ENERGY SECURITY BY KEN GREEN SPECIAL TO THE ADVOCATE When we talk about energy policy here in Canada, whether provincial or national, the discussion usually revolves around investment, jobs, revenues, and the environment. That’s generally been the terms of discussion on the recently killed Northern Gateway pipeline: who’ll get the money, who’ll get the jobs, and who’ll bear the risk. But there’s another dimension to energy policy that is often left out of the discussion, which is the idea of energy security, not only for Canada, but for the world as a whole. And decisions like Northern Gateway do little to add to Canada’s energy security. A recent Fraser Institute report drills into the issue of Canada’s energy security, drawing from an International Index of Energy Security Risk compiled by the Institute for 21st Century Energy, an offshoot of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. The index assesses risks to energy security in 25 countries (using 28 criteria) that constitute the world’s largest energy users over the years 1980 to 2010. Canada makes a strong showing, coming in at No. 8 in

the index in the 2012 report, but that needs to be taken in perspective: Canada’s energy security risk has been increasing from 2009, and its place on the index is falling: Canada ranked seventh as of 2009. Canada’s ranking is one down from the United States. With regard to Canada, the Chamber’s international index concludes that: “On balance, Canada’s energy security is about average, but it has tremendous potential to improve its own security. It can also contribute to better the energy security for other nations through further development of its oilsands.” Ah, but there’s the rub, for the index observes that such improvement is contingent on market conditions as well as the development of infrastructure that could bring Canada’s oilsands production to market. And there are significant threats on both fronts. With regard to market conditions, changes in U.S. oil and gas production are rewriting energy market dynamics with amazing speed. Because of those developments, Canada’s unique “market conditions” face a serious challenge in coming years. About 30 per cent of Canadian oil production, and 37 per cent of its gas production are consumed internally. The other 70 per cent of Canadian oil production is exported to the United States, while 63 per cent of Canadian natural gas production is exported to the United States. According to the Canadian National Energy Board, Canada exported 1.9 million barrels of oil per day, mostly to


refineries in the U.S. Midwest. Exports of natural gas were approximately nine billion cubic feet per day in 2010. In 2009, all but 0.8 per cent of Canada’s petroleum exports were shipped to hubs in the United States. That could be a problem, because the International Energy Agency recently estimated that the United States will become a net exporter of natural gas by 2020 and will be almost self-sufficient in energy by 2035. That’s not to say that the U.S. won’t have a market for Canada’s heavy crudes: some U.S. refineries need it, and might prefer a Canadian supplier to, say, Venezuela. Which brings up the issue of Northern Gateway, Keystone XL and other pipeline access to Canada’s East and West Coast: it doesn’t really take an International Index of Security Risk to tell us that failure to gain approval for alternate paths to market (and thus the ability to diversify markets) for Canada’s oilsands production looms large as a risk to Canada’s energy security and energy-economy, in decades to come. And diversified market access offers benefits beyond Canada’s borders:

One lesson that comes out of the Chamber’s International Index is that free trade in energy and energy products reduces risk for everyone involved. Finally, as the Fraser report points out, other studies show the security of world oil reserves improved sharply after the discovery of Canada’s oilsands reserves. The world’s energy centre-of-gravity is beginning to shift from the Middle East to North America, but that won’t continue if Canadian resources are locked up in Canada, as decisions like Northern Gateway threaten to do. It’s all well and good (and important) to discuss investment, jobs, revenues, and environmental protection when we’re discussing energy policy, but there are still broader factors to consider. The choices made today on Canadian energy policy will have direct impact on the future of Canada’s energy security, and global energy security as well.

Why should survival be the property of the rich? In Canada, if you have a heart attack, you have a 15 per cent chance of dying within the next 10 years. That’s if your income is $60,000 a year or better. If your income is $30,000 a year or less, your chances of dying with in the next decade jumps to 35 per cent. That’s the gist of a two-page news story in the Globe and Mail recently. Even though all Canadians, rich and poor, have the same access to health care, demographers can track and predict outcomes from heart attacks, based on income. The Institute for Clinical GREG Evaluative Sciences identiNEIMAN fied 1,368 Ontarians who had suffered a heart attack between 1999 and 2003. Then they examined the 2013 stats and counted how many of them had died. The pattern of markedly increased survivability based on income showed up. When the numbers were screened for education, the same pattern appeared, but to a lesser extent. In essence, despite universal health care, the rich are doubly more able to survive heart attacks than the

poor in Canada. The study could not pinpoint the actual mechanism income played. Researchers could only surmise that wealthier people generally make better lifestyle choices. That includes the desire, ability and personal support to get therapy (let’s just call it exercise) to get better, after that severe personal warning about the mortality of us all. Canadians should not need reminding that regular exercise is the cheapest and best medicine to both prevent cardiovascular disease, and to recover from an attack. That much is medical gospel. But an active lifestyle should not have any connection to income. Exercise is as cheap as a secondhand bike or a good pair of shoes. That, plus a desire to live. Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of Canadians. About 60,000 Canadians suffer heart attacks each year, says the health Agency of Canada. Some 16,000 die right off, and the rest become the subject of 10-year survivability studies. Recently, Canadians were also invited to take part in a national challenge to increase their own physical activity, in part by changing the way they get to work and run their daily errands. Across the country, 21,708 people registered to take part in the annual National Commuter Challenge. Logging in their daily commutes by bike, by walking, car pooling or transit, the algorithm on the

After attending ending college here years ago ago, I’m very excited to return to Red Deer. I’ve been fortunate to work with great people in both small and large dealerships, and seizing the opportunity to work with the teams at MGM Ford Lincoln, Go Auto Direct, and Go RV and Marine was an easy decision. We offer a diverse range of quality products and have access to a huge selection as part of the Go Auto family, but what really sets us apart is our commitment to customer service. Flat commission sales, free service loaners, 24/7 customer support, and Go Card savings and rewards are just a few things we’ve done to give you a better car buying and service experience.

REBELS PART WAYS WITH GOALIE COACH Brent Sutter, president/ general manager/ head coach of the Red Deer Rebels, announced Thursday that Brent Belecki will not return as the team’s goaltending coach. Belecki joined the Rebels prior to the 2010-11 season and worked with two winners of the Western Hockey League and Canadian Hockey League goaltender of the year, Darcy Kuemper (2010-11) and Patrik Bartosak (2012-13). Belecki spent only 40 days per season in Red Deer due to his employment as a Calgary firefighter. “We are going in a new direction with increasing the role of our goaltending coach,” said Sutter. “The increased role will involve working with prospects and our scouting staff. Unfortunately, Brent’s job as a firefighter in Calgary and with a young family, he was not able to commit to spending the time that is required for this expanded role. We’d like to thank Brent for his work with our goaltenders.” Sutter is finalizing a deal with another goaltender coach and will make an announcement next week regarding the new hire.

MIAMI WINS BACK-TO-BACK NBA CHAMPIONSHIPS AFTER GAME 7 WIN OVER SAN ANTONIO BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Heat 95 Spurs 88 MIAMI — LeBron James and the Miami Heat remain atop the NBA, and not even a proud push from the San Antonio Spurs could knock them down. James led the Heat to their second straight title, scoring 37 points and grabbing 12 rebounds in a 95-88 victory Thursday night in a tense Game 7 that was tight until Miami pulled away in the final minute. Winning the title they needed to validate the best season in franchise history — and perhaps the three-superstar system they used to build it — the Heat won the second straight thriller in the NBA’s first championship series to go the distance since 2010. “It took everything we had as a team,” Dwyane Wade said. “Credit to the San Antonio Spurs, they’re an unbelievable team, an unbelievable franchise. This is the hardest series we ever had to play. But we’re a resilient team and we did whatever it took.” Two nights after his Game 6 save when the Heat were almost eliminated, James continued his unparalleled run through the basketball world, with two titles and an Olympic gold medal in the last 12 months. “I work on my game a lot, throughout the off-season,” said James, who was MVP for the

second straight finals. “I put a lot of work into it and to be able to come out here and (have) the results happen out on the floor is the ultimate. The ultimate. I’m at a loss for words.” He made five 3-pointers, defended Tony Parker when he had to, and did everything else that could ever be expected from the best player in the game. The Heat became the NBA’s first repeat champions since the Lakers in 2009-10, and the first team to beat the Spurs in the NBA Finals. Players and coaches hugged each other after the game, the respect between the franchises that was obvious when the series started becoming even more apparent after two straight classics. Fans stood, clapped and danced across the final minutes, when every score was answered by another score, each stop followed by a better stop. The Heat pushed their lead to six points a few times midway through the fourth but the Spurs kept coming back. The Spurs, so close to a fifth title just two nights earlier, couldn’t find a way to grab it in this one, perhaps the last shot Tim Duncan, Parker and Manu Ginobili will ever get together. “In my case I still have Game 6 in my head,” Ginobili said. “Today we played an OK game, they just made more shots than us. LeBron got hot. Shane, too.

Those things can happen. But being so close and feeling that you are about to grab that trophy, and seeing it vanish is very hard.” They were trying to become the first road team to win a Game 7 on the road since Washington beat Seattle in 1978, but those old guys ran out of gas just before the finish. Duncan had 24 points and 12 rebounds for the Spurs, but missed a shot and follow attempt right under the basket with about 50 seconds left and the Spurs trailing by two. James followed with a jumper — the shot the Spurs were daring him to take earlier in the series — to make it 92-88, sending San Antonio to a team a timeout as Glenn Frey’s “The Heat is on” blared over the arena’s sound system. He then came up with a steal and made two free throws for a six-point lead, and after Ginobili missed, James stalked toward the sideline, knowing it was over and he was the last one standing again. Wade had 23 points and 10 rebounds for the Heat, who overcame a scoreless Chris Bosh by getting six 3-pointers and 18 points from Shane Battier. Streamers fell from the arena ceiling onto the white-clad fans for the second year in a row, but this one meant so much more after how close the Heat were to losing it. They were down 10 in the

fourth quarter of Game 6 before James led the charge back, finishing with a triple-double in Miami’s 103-100 overtime victory. This one was nearly as tight, neither team leading by more than seven and the game tied 11 times. Kawhi Leonard had 19 points and 16 rebounds for the Spurs, who had been 4 for 4 in the championship round. Ginobili had 18 points but Parker managed just 10 points on 3-of-12 shooting. The Heat collected the Larry O’Brien again from Commissioner David Stern, presiding over his final NBA Finals before retiring next February. He couldn’t have asked for a better way to go out. James avenged his first finals loss, when his Cleveland Cavaliers were swept by the Spurs on 2007. That helped send James on his way to South Florida, realizing it would take more help to win titles that could never come alone. He said he would appreciate this one more because of how tough it was. The Heat overpowered Oklahoma City in five games last year, a team of 20-something kids who weren’t ready to be champions yet. This came against a respected group of Spurs whose trio has combined for more than 100 playoff victories together.

Hawks need to tighten up defense going home BY THE CANADIAN PRESS CHICAGO — Jonathan Toews didn’t think the Chicago Blackhawks would need six goals to win Game 4 of the Stanley Cup final. By the time Patrick Sharp scored with 8:41 left in the third period to make it 5-4, he figured it would be enough. It wasn’t, but the Blackhawks managed to tie the series when Brent Seabrook’s overtime goal gave them a 6-5 win over Boston. Still, they know they must adjust on the defensive end going back to Chicago for Game 5 Saturday night. “There’s a give-and-take as far as the quality and quantity we give up. We always measure how we play is what we give up,” coach Joel Quenneville said. “I just don’t think we want to just exchange scoring chances, knowing that we’re giving up odd-man breaks. That’s not part of our game, and it’s not part of the way we want to play.” That open style certainly suits the Blackhawks better than the Bruins, even as Claude Julien took exception to the notion that his team played “rough-and-tumble” hockey and not much else. Boston doesn’t want to get into an end-to-end game, considering the ways Chicago can turn up the speed and have it translate into offence. “I don’t think any coach likes the back-

and-forth, exchanging chances,” Julien said. “Although it’s exciting for the fans, you’re looking for some zone time.” Eleven goals made for quite the departure from Games 2 and 3 when the teams combined for five. It was just another twist in a series that Blackhawks right-winger Patrick Kane called “pretty bizarre.” “I guess it’s good for the fans to keep watching and keep them guessing for what’s next,” Kane said. Not so good for the coaches, goaltenders and defences involved. Game 4 was the first real rough night of the playoffs for Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask, even though most of the goals weren’t on him, and Quenneville had to reaffirm his stance Thursday that Corey Crawford would remain in net for the Blackhawks moving forward. Crawford’s teammates assumed some of the pressure for the offensive explosion and explained what they need to do to cut down on Boston’s chances. “I think as forwards we can maybe be a little more responsible and getting in shooting lanes the way they would against us,” Toews said. “I think there’s something to be said about blocking shots and maybe helping our goaltender out a little bit more.” Seabrook, whose goal 9:51 into overtime ensured the Blackhawks wouldn’t be lamenting some defensive breakdowns, credited forwards for backchecking and conced-

ed that things opened up once the Bruins went all-out to come back from a couple of two-goal deficits. Nevertheless, getting back to defensive fundamentals is key. “It’s big for our team to play at both ends of the rink,” Seabrook said. “You know, we’ve taken pride in our defensive game all year. I think some penalty-kill goals last game, I think that’s uncharacteristic of our group, and we’ve got to shore that up for the next game. We’re not going to be able to score six against Boston every night.” If it’s up to Rask and the Bruins, the Blackhawks won’t score six goals the rest of the series. But Julien isn’t going to apologize for his team breaking out of a stereotype and scoring five goals. “We should be happy with that,” he said. “The goals that we gave (up) a lot of times were just guys not being in the right place where they should have been. Instead of stopping in our positions, we did a lot of curling last night, which is usually a sign of our team struggling.” Pushing the pace is not a sign of Chicago struggling. Quite the opposite for a team equipped to trade chances. Still, there’s something dangerous about the risks associated with keeping up that kind of tempo.

Big markets to host next World Juniors MONTREAL AND TORONTO TO HOST 2015 AND 2017 HOCKEY CHAMPIONSHIPS BY THE CANADIAN PRESS MONTREAL — They promise to be the biggest world junior hockey championships ever. Hockey Canada announced Thursday that the 2015 and 2017 championships will be co-hosted by Canada’s two largest cities — Toronto and Montreal. “We’re taking this to a whole new level,” Hockey Canada president Bob Nicholson said. News conferences were held a few hours apart in both cities for the tournaments that organizers expect to set records for attendance and revenue. Both cities will host a preliminary round group at each event, with Toronto hosting the medal round in 2015 and Montreal hosting the medal round in 2017. Team Canada will be based in Montreal for the round robin in 2015, and in Toronto in 2017. Canada has also been confirmed as host of the 2019 and 2021 tournaments. They wanted to start that run with an extravaganza. Hockey Canada set aside the normal bidding process to work out a complex deal with the Montreal Canadiens and Toronto Maple Leafs, two provincial governments and the three major junior leagues to hold the tournaments in the two Original Six cities. “This was a different process than we’ve had before and the reason is that we have the ’15, ’17, ’19 and ’21 world juniors,” said Nicholson. “Both Montreal and Toronto have been in the bids before. “When we started discussions with the Canadiens and Maple Leafs, we knew this was the direction we wanted to go.” The two events will coincide with other celebrations, including the 100th anniversaries of both the Maple Leafs and Hockey Canada, the 150th anniversary of Canada’s confederation, the 50th of Montreal’s Expo 67 and the 375th of the founding of Montreal. “It’ll be exciting to have world calibre junior hockey played right here,” said Canadiens owner and president Geoff Molson. “For Montreal, it’s going to be great exposure and also a big economic benefit.” Montreal hosted a world junior tournament once, when Slava Fetisov’s Soviet Union won gold and a 16-year-old Wayne Gretzky led Canada to a bronze medal at the old Forum in 1978. Toronto has never hosted the event. The tournament will be played at the 21,273-seat Bell Centre in Montreal and at Air Canada Centre in Toronto, which seats 18,819 for hockey but can hold 19,746 with standing room. They hope to top the record of 444,718 fans at the 2012 world juniors in Calgary and Edmonton, which netted a $21-million profit that was shared by various hockey organizations. But Nicholson doesn’t just want sold-out games. He wants the seats to be filled with fans. They hope to find a ticket sales system that will ensure maximum attendance, although the NHL clubs’ season ticket holders will have to be appeased. Tim Leiweke, president of Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment, said there were many complex issues, including conflicts of sponsorships among the various organizations, that had to be resolved. “There were a lot of behind-the-scenes negotiations to try to sort this out,” he said. “It would have been an easy one to fall apart. “There were probably 20 things that could have killed this deal and I think both organizations did a good job of fighting through the issues. We’re not just getting this for the first time in Toronto. This is going to be the centrepiece for our 100th anniversary.” The Canadian Sport Tourism Alliance evaluated the economic impact of the 2012 event at $86 million, although there is much debate on the accuracy of economic spinoff estimates. Nicholson said benefits

from the Montreal and Toronto tournaments could top $200 million combined. “If we do this right, with all the other platforms, $200 million might be a soft number,” he said. “We feel it can get higher than that, especially if we package the tickets in a different way. “We’re going to be creative about that to make sure that as many people as possible get in to see this. We left 185,000 people on the outside looking in at Calgary and Edmonton, so is there a way to get more into the games?” Hockey Canada also announced a 10-year broadcasting extension with TSN and RDS. Nicholson said the upcoming junior championships had no bearing on the extension. This will mark the 11th and 12th times Canada has hosted the tournament, which starts around Christmas. While it was once held in smaller centres known for supporting junior hockey, the trend in recent years is to boost revenue by staging it in bigger cities. Nicholson expects that to continue, but said pre-tournament games will be held in major junior arenas. After Montreal in 1978, it was held in Hamilton in 1986, Saskatoon in 1991, Red Deer, in 1995, Winnipeg in 1999, Halifax in 2003, Vancouver, Kamloops and Kelowna, B.C. in 2006, Ottawa in 2009 and Regina and Saskatoon in 2010. Profits from the tournament go into developing hockey across Canada, while visiting teams also benefit.

BY ADVOCATE STAFF Todd Gleeson of the Red Deer Cheney Karate Studio will take his undefeated record into the main event of Saturday’s Superfights 21 card at the Sheraton Hotel. Gleeson, who has six wins and a draw on his record, will take on Adam Blanchette (9-3) of Vancouver with the Western Canadian Muay Thai Super Cruiserweight (200 pounds) title on the line. Promotor Lyle Cheney is also Gleeson’s coach and likes his potential and chances of winning Saturday. “Todd is extremely powerful. He’s tall and he’s a hard worker and a really good athlete,” said Cheney. The 13-fight Muay Thai/kickboxing card has remained intact since Cheney first put it together, a rare occurrence. “So far no one has backed out or anything like that. It’s almost spooky,” he said. Included on the undercard is a 155-pound Muay Thai bout between Dwain Soon (8-7) of Calgary and Adam Brown (71) of Regina, both former title-holders. “They are absolutely two very good fighters,” said Cheney. Ticket sales have been strong for the annual event, which always draws a large gathering. “It should be a good end-of-the season event for us,” said Cheney. Doors open at 6 p.m., with the first bout starting at 7:15 p.m. The Superfights 21 card (all fights consist of three two-minute

He is also coming off a fourth-place finish after being in the final pair at the U.S. Open, something he said has him playing with confidence. He opened the day by making the first of eight birdies during a bogey-free round. He was also at 8-under with three holes to play before shooting par on the final three holes. “This is a golf course where you can

HEAT: Already best in NBA history Duncan is 37 and Ginobili will be a 36-year-old free agent next month, the core of a franchise whose best days may be behind them. Meanwhile, it’s a potential dynasty along Biscayne Bay, but also one with a potentially small window. Wade’s latest knee problems are a reminder that though he came into the NBA at the same time as James and Bosh, he’s a couple of years older at 31 with wheels that sometimes seem older. James can become a free agent again next summer with another decision — though hopefully not another Decision — to make. He’s comfortable in Miami and close with Wade, and the Heat have the leadership and commitment from owner Micky Arison and president Pat Riley to continue constructing a championship core around him. Why would he want to leave here? San Antonio’s most recent title came at James’ expense, a sweep of the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2007. The Spurs’ exploited the weaknesses in James’ game though knew someday they would be gone, Duncan telling him afterward that the league would someday belong to James. And James simply isn’t giving it back. He came in averaging 33.8 points in Game 7s, already the best in NBA history, and was even better in this one.

CUP: You’d better cash in, or you’d better take advantage “You know if you’re going to get something at the other end, you’d better cash in, or you’d better take advantage of the puck because you know it’s going down the other end, so you want to make sure you manage that better,” Quenneville said. “I don’t think you want to just get out there and exchange high-quality chances because the team that’s a little more patient will probably have a little more success if that’s the case.” Patience is easier for the team that possesses the puck, something Julien pointed out was crucial to returning to “Bruins hockey.” He meant getting offence going the other way, not slowing things down to a crawl. From the Blackhawks’ perspective, it’s more about making the right decisions while also maintaining a quicker pace. “As far as our speed and our puck control, I think we were very responsible with it,” Toews said. “It’s something we want to keep going forward with, and I think we can even build on in the next game. The better you play and the more you have the puck, and when you score a big goal especially in our own building come Saturday night, it’s going to give us even more energy.” Energy came and went with changes in scoring in Game 4. Both teams will try to contain those wild swings of momentum, and which one manages to do it best could end up with the Cup. That requires a change, even for the Blackhawks. “We’ve got to be expected to come out and win a Game 1-0, 2-1,” Seabrook said. “Those are the kind of games that are going to be going forward here, and we’ve got to be better in all zones.”

“Get Ready For Summer”

MUNICH, Germany — Ernie Els took the lead in the first round of the BMW International Open on Thursday after an eagle and seven birdies steered him to a 9-under 63. The South African, who won the British Open in 2002 and 2012 and the U.S. Open in 1994 and 1997, almost had a second eagle at the last that would have equaled a course record. Still, he was content with a twoputt birdie that gave him a onestroke lead. “It doesn’t really mean much until Sunday. But getting into the race, so to speak, early on in the tournament is nice, to be right in the hunt,” Els said. Matthew Baldwin of England, Sweden’s Alex Noren, Dutchman Robert-Jan Derksen and Germany’s Martin Kaymer, who delighted the home crowd in the afternoon by finishing with three successive birdies, and nine in all, have a share of second place after carding 64s. “I had a lot of chances on the back nine and I pretty much made all of them,” said Kaymer, who won this tournament in 2008. Baldwin and Noren both had eight birdies in the morning, while Derksen had six, as well as an eagle in the afternoon. English pair Matthew Nixon and Tom Lewis, along with Alexander Levy of France, are tied for sixth, one stroke further back. “Hats off, it was just everything went right, holed a lot of putts and that’s that, really,” Nixon said.




Martin Kaymer of Germany watches the ball during the BMW International Open at Golfclub Eichenried near Munich, southern Germany, on Thursday. “I had two eagles and my dad is always telling me I’m rubbish at par-5s so hopefully he’ll feel better about that.” Els finished tied for fourth at the U.S. Open last week and had a share of sixth place at the Wentworth Club in his previous two tournaments. “I’ve really been working hard at my game,” the 43-year-old said. “I could feel that things were coming around a bit. I’ve had a bit of an iffy year up to now, but I really feel that my swing feels good and my body feels good, so I can swing the club properly.” Els started at the 10th, and fired five birdies in the outward 31. He holed a 40-foot birdie putt on the short second, before doing brilliantly on the par-five sixth.

Despite finding himself in the rough facing a flag guarded by water, he drove the ball almost 250 yards to within five feet of the hole, before putting for the eagle. “It’s just a pleasure to play, not to go through a torture chamber like I did at the U.S. Open. So, a nice start,” Els said. American Dustin Johnson was among a group of 10 to finish with 6-under 66s, including South Africa’s Brandon Stone on his professional debut. “I drove it well, hit it well. I holed a couple putts but I missed quite a few short ones,” said Johnson, who managed six birdies. “I’m happy with where I’m at right now and I’m looking forward to coming back in the morning and playing better.”

be aggressive off the tee if you want to be, but you can also play it safe,” he said. “I choose to be mostly aggressive, and it gives me some short irons. I’m happy to take on pins with my short irons. So it’s a combo of things, but all I know is when I step on that tee, I feel like I can hit any shot out here.” Watson finds himself in contention again after winning in 2010 and tying Hoffman as the runner-up a year ago. He said there is a reason so many familiar names are at the top of the leaderboard.

CROMWELL, Conn. — Charley Hoffman couldn’t help but think about last year as he stood on the 17th tee Thursday at the Travelers Championship. A year ago, Hoffman hit a similar tee shot right and into the water, staring at a double-bogey, bogey slide on the final two holes of the tournament in which he lost a two-stroke lead and eventually the title. This time, his drive stayed on the fairway. He finished with a par and then a birdie to complete a first-round 61, one shot off the course record. “Believe it or not, I was thinking about it going down 16, 17, 18,” he said. “If I could have just gotten those balls in play, I would have been defending champion here. But this year, I got off to a good start and obviously a little more focused on those last two holes. Hopefully I’m there again this year.” His 28 on the back nine was the lowest nine holes on the PGA Tour this year, and puts him one shot up on Hunter Mahan, who posted an early 62. Bubba Watson was two strokes back. Hoffman said he thought he might have a chance to go even lower, and was flirting with 59 after making eagle on 10 and 12, and going to 8-under par with a birdie on 16. “I knew I had some chances coming in,” he said. “But when it’s said and done, as I displayed last year, 16, 17 and 18 aren’t an easy test. So I was just trying to make some pars coming in.” Hoffman, Mahan and Watson all have interesting histories in Connecticut. Mahan is the 2007 champion and has two second-place finishes in his 11

“These are guys that love this course, that love this tournament, they love Travelers and how they’ve treated us here,” he said. “And so, you’re always going to see pretty much some of the same guys up there because they enjoy this area and this golf course.” Graham DeLaet of Weyburn, Sask., is in a group of six golfers four strokes back at 65. Calgary’s Stephen Ames, Ottawa’s Brad Fritsch both opened with an even-par 70. Mike Weir of Brights Grove, Ont., shot a 74. The biggest ovation of the day came when Justin Rose was introduced on the first tee as the U.S. Open champion. Rose went on to shoot a 67, leaving him in good shape heading into Friday. “Obviously, I’m playing well,” he said. “I just knew I had to get through today without too much damage. If you manage to keep it in the mid-60s for most of the week, you should do pretty well.” Rose also announced that he is changing management companies, leaving British-based 4Sports & Entertainment for Excel Sports, the same company that represents Tiger Woods. “I just felt with me playing so much here in the States and where I felt my game was going, I just felt it was a decision I wanted to make,” he said. The round marked the pro debut of Chris Williams, the top-ranked amateur in the world the past season. The former University of Washington star shot a 1-over 71, with two bogies and a single birdie. “The first tee, I was a little nervous,” he said. “But then it was the same old, same old. I didn’t play very well, so that was pretty frustrating, but I got it out of the way.”

Collaros leads Argos past Alouettes CFL EXHIBITION BY THE CANADIAN PRESS Argonauts 24 Alouettes 20 TORONTO — Zach Collaros doesn’t put much stock in one game. But in the Toronto Argonauts’ battle between backup quarterbacks, his game Thursday certainly didn’t hurt him either. Collaros ran in one touchdown and threw for another to lead Toronto to a 24-20 victory over the Montreal Alouettes on Thursday in the final pre-season game for both teams. “I don’t think I sent a message, they’ve seen enough of all the quarterbacks,” said Collaros, who played just one game for the Argos last season. “I don’t know how much that will change anything.” Collaros, who’s battling Trevor Harris for the No. 2 spot behind Ricky Ray, clinched the win in a homecoming of sorts for the defending Grey Cup champions when he threw a 29-yard touchdown to Juaquin Iglesias at 12:29 in the fourth quarter in front of 6,204 fans at Varsity Stadium. With CFL cutdown day looming on Saturday, Collaros completed 5-of-9 pass attempts for 72 yards, and rushed for 14 yards on three carries. He ran in a one-yard touchdown after assembling his own scoring drive late in the third quarter. Harris was 9 of 16 for 79 yards and a touchdown. “I thought they did well,” Argos coach Scott Milanovich said of his two backups. “We struggled in the first half offensively, and there were a lot of reasons for that, but until I see it I’m not going to know what was happening for Trevor. “I thought we did a better job offensively adjusting in the second half and gave Zach a little better opportunity to be successful.” Harris, who played in two regular-season games last year for Toronto, wasn’t reading too much into Thursday’s final dress rehearsal either. “The coaches told us they evaluate everything, everything equally,” Harris said. “Practices and walkthroughs and the way we carry ourselves, gratitude and effort every single day — those are big things that they look into and this was one part of it and I’m sure they’ll weigh this in how they want to weigh it in and make their decisions likewise and accordingly.” Ray, meanwhile, started for the Grey Cup champs, but threw just three incomplete passes in his brief playing time. Milanovich was pleased with the win, but not so much the performance. “There’s a lot of things you’re trying to get out of a pre-season game, but winning’s a habit, so is losing, so it’s always important for us to try to come out on top. We’ll certainly take it,” the coach said. “But we

Als backup Josh Neiswander was 6 of 8 for 84 yards. A festive atmosphere welcomed the Argos back on the field in their first game since they beat the Calgary Stampeders in last November’s 100th Grey Cup game. Fans gave the team a standing ovation during introductions. “It sort of had a throwback feel for us in a way, sort of like an under-the-lights ’Friday Night Lights’ type of feel,” Harris said. “So it was kind of fun, with the stands on one side and the lights. Obviously quarterbacks will tell you all that we’d rather play in a dome without the wind and stuff, but it was a great time out there.” The night marked the first CFL game played at downtown’s Varsity Stadium in 55 years. Fans lined the stadium gates along Bloor Street, peering

through the rails. Several hundred fans paid $30 for standing-room-only tickets, and lined the west side of the running track. Toronto Mayor Rob Ford and CFL commissioner Mark Cohon were seated in the front row, and shared a handshake before kickoff. Reggie Williams scored Toronto’s other touchdown, a circus catch in the end zone on a 16-yard pass from Harris that put the Argos up 9-7 lead in the second. Arland Bruce and Michael Campbell scored touchdowns for Montreal. Bruce caught a 32-yard pass from Calvillo for the first touchdown of the game, while Campbell caught a 47-yard bomb from Tanner Marsh in the third. Delbert Alvarado booted two field goals of 19 and 36 yards. Curtis Steele rushed for 87 yards on eight carries for Toronto.

Ticats’ rookies shine in victory over Bombers


Hamilton Tiger-Cats quarterback Henry Burris makes a pass during second quarter CFL pre-season action against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in Guelph, Ontario Thursday. BY THE CANADIAN PRESS

GUELPH, Ont. — Raymond Brown couldn’t have picked a better time to register his first three-pick game. The rookie had three interceptions, returning one 115 yards for the touchdown, as the Hamilton Tiger-Cats pasted the Winnipeg Blue Bombers 52-0 in the final CFL exhibition game for both clubs. Brown, a defensive back from Kansas, picked off Justin Goltz in the end zone and returned it for the TD on the final play of the second quarter to give Hamilton a commanding 35-0 half-time lead. “One of the biggest job interviews of

my life but it’s football and you let the cards fall where they may,” he said. “You can’t think about that but I hope I did (make a statement). “I saw him (Goltz) come to the side and there was only one receiver that way, I just glided over. I know he didn’t see me and he threw it to me. The coaches have to make a tough decision and I respect them for whatever decision they make.” Brown wasn’t the only Ticats rookie to shine. Running back Lindsey Lamar returned a punt 76 yards for a touchdown while safety Erik Harris had an interception and fumble recovery and receiver Greg Ellingson had two catches for 88 yards — including a 58-yard

TD grab. Lamar took Mike Renaud’s 46-yard punt the distance on the final play of the first quarter to put Hamilton ahead 14-0. With receiver-returner Chris Williams continuing his contract dispute, the Ticats could be in the market for a special-teams dynamo. “I feel like I’ve done everything I can,” Lamar said. “I came, I showed up, I did everything the coaches asked me to do, I put my head down and worked hard. “It’s out of my control now, it’s in God’s hands.” CFL teams must reduce their rosters to 46 players by 10 p.m. ET on Saturday. “We have some players and that’s a good thing,” said Ticats head coach/GM Kent Austin. “We understand there’s some tough decisions that have to be made and that’s unfortunate but we’re going to have to make them as a staff.” The first-year players shone in Hamilton’s first “home” game at Alumni Stadium on a simply gorgeous evening. The facility on the campus of the University of Guelph will be the Ticats’ home away from home this season while a new venue is being built. The usual seating capacity here is roughly 7,500 but has been increased to 13,000 for Ticats games. The announced attendance for Thursday’s game was 12,732. Although the game was Hamilton’s first at Alumni Stadium, Ticats starter Henry Burris said the club is settled in. “This is already home and we look forward to getting here and testing out the new locker-room,” Burris said. “We’re so happy to be here and to be able to play in this atmosphere, we’re excited about it.” The Ticats will move into their new stadium next season. The facility will also stage the soccer competition for the 2015 Pan American Games. Hamilton finished the exhibition season with a 2-0 record while Winnipeg was 0-2. The two clubs were tied

for the CFL’s worst record last year at 6-12. Chevon Walker, Andy Fantuz and Harold Mutobola had Hamilton’s other touchdowns. Luca Congi booted the converts and three field goals while Brett Lauther had a single. Winnipeg kicks off the 2013 regular season Thursday hosting the Montreal Alouettes at new Investors Group Field. Hamilton travels to Toronto next Friday night to face the Grey Cupchampion Argonauts at Rogers Centre. The two teams took different approaches to this contest as Winnipeg came with just 41 players while Hamilton dressed 64. Among the notable Bombers missing was starting quarterback Buck Pierce, who didn’t make the trip after going 0-for-5 passing in the club’s first exhibition game, a 24-6 home loss to Toronto last week. Goltz got the start and completed 12-of-21 passes for 101 yards and two interceptions as Winnipeg didn’t get over centre field until just over two minutes were left in the opening half. Chase Clement, who left Hamilton’s camp in 2009 after just a single practice, and Max Hall took second-half snaps for the Bombers, who committed nine turnovers (six interceptions, two fumbles, downs). It was a miserable pre-season for Winnipeg, which was outscored 76-6 in the two games and could only muster two field goals. “The Little Sisters of the Poor would’ve beaten us,” Bombers head coach Tim Burke said. “Usually when you turn the ball over three times you’re going to lose so when you do it nine times I guess it equals three losses.” Burris started for Hamilton and looked solid, completing 13-of-17 passes for 198 yards and two TDs in the opening half before giving way to sophomore Dan LeFevour to start the third. Walker opened the scoring with a one-yard TD run at 7:43 of the first, which was set up by Harris’s interception.

Parades kicks late field goal as Stampeders top Riders REGINA — Rene Paredes scored his third field goal of the game from 29 yards with less than three minutes left as the Calgary Stampeders beat the Saskatchewan Roughriders 24-23 on Thursday in the final CFL pre-season game for both teams. Six days after the Roughriders scored twice in the final minute to beat the Edmonton Eskimos by a touchdown, it was Saskatchewan that couldn’t hold a fourth-quarter lead. Down 23-14 after three quarters, the Stampeders drew within two points 41 seconds into the fourth on LaMarcus Coker’s one-yard touchdown run. The Roughriders moved into scoring position twice after that but failed to capitalize, missing one field goal from 48 yards and bobbling the snap on another from 36. Saskatchewan opened the scoring on its first possession of the game, which primarily featured the first-team offences and defences for each club. Starting quarterback Darian Durant recovered his own fumble and passed to Rob Bagg at the sideline for a first down on the third play of the drive, and Kory Sheets ran for a one-yard TD three plays later. Calgary replied with 14 straight points on field goals of 37 and 35 yards from Paredes’ field goal, a

26-yard touchdown pass from Drew Tate to Rob Cote before the first quarter was up and a 63-yard punt single from Rob Maver that bounced past Riders returner Jock Sanders and into the end zone. Saskatchewan’s sputtering offence got a jolt after Calgary punter Maver conceded a safety early in the third quarter. Sheets’ second touchdown of the game, a 12-yard rush midway through the third, put Saskatchewan ahead 16-14. Sheets followed up on the next possession with a 50-yard run from near half that set up a four-yard TD toss from Durant to Scott McHenry that put Saskatchewan ahead 23-14. Sheets finished the game with a game-high 97 yards rushing on 10 runs. Durant finished 14-of-23 passes for 112 yards with one touchdown and one interception. Drew Willy and Tino Sunseri relieved Durant in the fourth quarter. Willy was 2 for 5 for 24 yards and Sunseri was incomplete on his only throw of the game. Tate played the first half at quarterback for the Stamps before giving way to Ryan Perrilloux, Kevin Glenn and Bo Levi Mitchell in the second half. Tate went 9 for 21 for 107 yards and a touchdown. Perrilloux was 1 for 3 for 14 yards in two series of action. Glenn finished 4 for 5 for 39 yards, and Mitchell closed out the game completing all four passes he

attempted. Calgary opens the regular season June 28 at home against the B.C. Lions while the Roughriders are in Edmonton June 29 to take on the Eskimos.

Raptors’ coach says he is ready to work with new GM THE CANADIAN PRESS TORONTO — Dwane Casey can breathe a sigh of relief knowing his role as head coach of the Toronto Raptors is secure, at least for the time being. New general manager Masai Ujiri said on Wednesday that Casey will be back for the final year of his contract. That decision may not have caught many people by surprise, but Casey says he didn’t dismiss uncertainty surrounding his job that came with Ujiri’s arrival. “There’s always doubt,” Casey said at a press conference at the Air Canada Centre on Thursday. “When you see coaches like George (Karl), Lionel (Hollins), those colleagues lose their jobs, there’s always doubt.” Casey also witnessed a shake-up within his own organization over the past month. Bryan Colangelo, the former Raptors GM who announced in April that Casey would be back in his head coaching role for the 2013-2014 season, was ousted from his own position and replaced by Ujiri a month later. The 56-year-old Casey said a fear of failure has kept him going. “That’s what motivates me, and I hope that’s what motivates our players,” he said. “I’ve

never taken anything for granted, whether it was this job or any job I’ve had. I’m always fearing failure. I always want to do a good job and that’s what I work for.” Casey joined the Raptors in 2011 after winning the NBA championship as an assistant coach with the Dallas Mavericks. But since becoming a head coach in Toronto he has managed a 57-91 record. The Raptors, who began their 2012-2013 campaign full of promise after signing young Lithuanian Jonas Valanciunas and acquiring Kyle Lowry and Landry Fields through trades during the off-season, finished the season with a 34-48 record and missing the playoffs for the fifth consecutive year. Casey hopes this year will be different. With a new GM in place, Casey says he’s excited to begin preparing for the upcoming season alongside Ujiri, a man who he’s known for years. “I know what Masai is about,” Casey said. “He’s about a lot of the same things that I stand for — the toughness, playing hard, being accountable — all of the things it takes to win. “What I want to do, what is my vision and his vision, is to get to where it’s a constant, where

Whitecaps sign Danish star goalie Ousted SALES EVENT

THE CANADIAN PRESS VANCOUVER — Rumours became reality Thursday as the Vancouver Whitecaps signed veteran Danish goalkeeper David Ousted. Pending receipt of his international transfer certificate, the former Danish Superliga star will be eligible to play in Major League Soccer on July 9. He can’t play sooner because an international transfer window does not open before then. “We just felt that if we didn’t (sign him) in this window, he would go elsewhere,” said Whitecaps president Bob Lenarduzzi. “We felt we were in a situation where it was important to lock him up.” Ousted’s arrival was expected following several recent media reports in Denmark that linked him to the Whitecaps. Ousted, 28, played 10 seasons in Denmark, including four campaigns in the top-flight Superliga. He earned 35 clean sheets in 103 matches for Randers FC over the past three seasons while helping the club finish third in the 201213 Superliga and qualify for the UEFA Europa League. The six-foot-three Roskilde native made 39 total appearances in the final season in his homeland, earning 14 clean sheets. Six of his appearances came as he helped Randers reach the Danish Cup final, where it lost 1-0 to Esbjerg fB. He also made six appearances for Randers in the 2010-11 UEFA Europa League. The Whitecaps pursued Ousted after Vancouver’s goalkeeping coach Marius Rovde, a Norwegian who is tapped into the Scandinavian market, learned that he was out of contract and available. Given Ousted’s age, said Lenarduzzi, the club believes he can help in the short and long terms. “He sets a very commanding presence,” said Lenarduzzi, who has seen him on video. “He’s (about) six-four and is a good shot stopper. His size would suggest that he’s quite comfortable coming for crosses in the box.”



GM Holmgren says Flyers will buy out last two years of Briere’s contract

SAN JOSE, Calif. — The San Jose Sharks have signed forward Raffi Torres to a three-year contract that will keep him off the free-agent market next month. General manager Doug Wilson announced the signing on Thursday. Torres was eligible to become an unrestricted free agent on July 5. Bringing Torres back was a major off-season priority for Wilson despite the forward’s suspension for the final six games of the second round for an illegal hit on Los Angeles’ Jarret Stoll. Torres provided a spark after being acquired from Phoenix at the trade deadline and had expressed a strong desire to stay in San Jose. Torres had two goals and four assists in 11 regular season games with the Sharks and also scored an overtime goal to beat Vancouver in the first round.

you’re in the playoffs, and build a program that’s going to be sustainable over the test of time.” According to Casey, he and Ujiri have already begun that process together, despite any uncertainty surrounding Casey’s job security. “We’ve spent the last couple weeks, probably since (Ujiri) got the job, talking, texting or emailing almost every single day,” the Raptors coach said. “We share the same outlook, we know what we need to improve on, what direction we need to go to, and the bottom line is to keep developing what we have. “Our ultimate goal is to develop not just into a team that sneaks into the playoffs, but a team that can consistently say, ’Hey, we have a chance to fight for a championship.”’ As Casey spoke, the Miami Heat and the San Antonio Spurs were preparing for Thursday night’s Game 7 NBA finals match-up. It may be tough to picture Toronto in a do-ordie championship setting right now, but Casey has his sights set high. “I want to be in that situation with the Raptors one of these days,” he said.


of his contract.

Sharks sign Torres to three-year deal

PHILADELPHIA — Danny Briere’s time with the Philadelphia Flyers is over. Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren has announced the team will use a compliance buyout on the last two years of the centre’s contract. Briere, who spent the past six seasons with the Flyers, was due $5 million over the next two seasons. Instead of counting $6.5 million against Philadelphia’s salary cap, he will become an unrestricted free agent. The buyout cannot become official until at least 48 hours after the Stanley Cup is awarded, but Briere being bought out was widely reported and the team confirmed the move Thursday. “This was a very difficult decision for us to make as Danny has been a very good player for us over the past six years,” Holmgren said in a statement. “Danny came to our organization as a free agent in July of 2007 and has been a tremendous player, person and role model in all aspects.” Briere, 35, helped the Flyers reach the 2010 Cup final. He had 30 points in 23 playoff games that season. It’s uncertain whether the Flyers will use their other compliance buyout on goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov. Under NHL rules, teams have the option of two amnesty buyouts to terminate contracts before the start of the 2014-15 season. “They know it’s not easy for the players in the organization to be in that situation, so I’m sure they’ll handle it with class as well and try to do the best for the team and also for Bryz,” Briere said.

Sabres sign Enroth to a two-year extension BUFFALO, N.Y. — The Buffalo Sabres have signed backup goalie Jhonas Enroth to a two-year contract extension. Enroth was scheduled to become a restricted free agent before signing on Thursday. Enroth had a 2.6 goals-against average and a shutout in going 4-4-2 in 12 games last season, his third in the NHL. Buffalo selected Enroth in the second round of the 2006 draft. Overall, he has a 2.72 goals-against average, three shutouts and a 21-18-10 record in 53 career games. He’s coming off a solid spring, during which Enroth was chosen the World Ice Hockey championships top goalie in helping Sweden win the gold medal. Enroth has the potential of taking over the No. 1 job in Buffalo with starter Ryan Miller entering the final year

Sports Hall recognizes impact of WHA RENEGADE LEAGUE’S IMPACT ON PROFESSIONAL HOCKEY FEATURED IN EXHIBIT AT CANADA’S SPORTS HALL OF FAME BY THE CANADIAN PRESS CALGARY — The World Hockey Association lasted less than a decade and has been defunct for more than 30 years. But the renegade league’s impact on professional hockey in North America then and now warranted recognition from Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame on Thursday. With help from WHA alumni, the Hall unveiled an exhibit featuring jerseys, photos and pennants from such teams as the Cleveland Crusaders, San Francisco Sharks, Calgary Broncos and New York Raiders. The conversation piece was a hockey stick that once belonged to a 17-year-old Wayne Gretzky who started his pro career with the Indianapolis Racers. The stick bears his name incorrectly spelled “W. Gretsky.” The Hall has scheduled an appreciation day for the WHA on Saturday. The Avco Cup, the championship trophy on loan from the Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame, will be on display. The public will have an opportunity to meet players. “I’m actually quite surprised there is this recogni-

tion of the World Hockey Association,” former player Gerry Pinder said. “I don’t think I ever believed this was going to happen.” The WHA operated from 1972 to 1979 and lured dozens of NHL players to its clubs by offering higher salaries and the ability to move between teams. Bobby Hull, Gordie Howe, Derek Sanderson, Frank Mahovlich, Jacques Plante, Dave Keon, Pat Stapleton and Mark Messier are among the hockey luminaries who count themselves as WHA alumni. The NHL saw the WHA as a threat and expanded rapidly to keep WHA teams out of markets. The NHL also absorbed four WHA clubs when the league ceased operations in 1979. The WHA also aggressively recruited European players, of which there were few in the NHL at the time. For players, the WHA offered a chance to revolt against what they saw as the tyrannical NHL and get paid a lot more to play hockey. An NHL salary in 1972 was $25,000 and players’ restrictive contracts handcuffed them to one team for the duration of their career, according to The Rebel League: The Short and Unruly Life of the World Hockey Association by Ed Willes.

Lawsuit claims Patriots’ Hernandez shot man in face after strip club visit

When Pinder defected from the NHL’s Chicago Blackhawks to the WHA’s Cleveland Crusaders “we were told in no uncertain terms by members of the National Hockey League executives, ‘If you go to the WHA, you’re not coming back to the National Hockey League.”’ Pinder didn’t test that vow as he ended his career with the WHA’s Edmonton Oilers in 1977-78, although Hull and Cheevers were absorbed back into the NHL. “More pioneers I would say than rebels,” Pinder said. “When I left the National Hockey League, I wasn’t making very much money. I think in my first year I tripled my salary. It was a recognition the players were worth something.” Stapleton, who played for Canada in the 1972 Summit Series, was another Blackhawk who jumped to the WHA. He says the league’s greatest legacy was providing more NHL job opportunities today. “It exposed more players to it either from Europe, U.S. college, Canadian universities,” Stapleton pointed out. “Now, there’s 700 and some spots. At that time there was 240 spots, so you’ve tripled it right?” The WHA exhibit will remain in Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame until June 2014.


Canadian beach volleyball duo win but miss out on knockout round THE CANADIAN PRESS



borough. On Wednesday, at least seven state troopers searched both sides of a road just off the street where Hernandez lives. The officers used thin poles to pull back plants and search through undergrowth along the road. The Patriots drafted Hernandez out of Florida in 2010. Since then, he has combined with Rob Gronkowski to form one of the top tight end duos in the NFL. He missed 10 games last season with an ankle injury and had shoulder surgery in April but is expected to be ready for training camp. Last summer, the Patriots gave him a five-year contract worth $40 million. Hernandez said after he was drafted that he had failed a drug test while with the Gators and had been upfront with NFL teams about the issue. Sports Illustrated reported that the link between Hernandez and the case was a rented Chevrolet Suburban with Rhode Island plates that police had been searching for. The Associated Press could not independently confirm the report. Lloyd’s neighbour Larry Connors said a black Suburban with Rhode Island license plates was towed out of the yard of Lloyd’s house after his body was found. Lloyd had been driving it for a few days, but Connors had never seen it before that.

Lawsuit seeks to force NCAA to share sports revenue with student athletes BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS OAKLAND, Calif. — Former college basketball standout Ed O’Bannon and his lawyers sought on Thursday to dramatically expand his lawsuit challenging the NCAA’s ban on compensating athletes in a move that could expose the organization and its member schools to billions of dollars in damages. O’Bannon and his lawyers asked a federal court judge to turn their antitrust lawsuit into a class action, representing thousands of former and current college athletes. The lawsuit demands that the NCAA find a way to cut players in on the billions of dollars earned by college sports from live broadcasts, memorabilia sales, video games and in other areas. U.S. District Court Judge Claudia Wilken didn’t rule on either the merits of O’Bannon’s case or his demands to turn the case into a class action. It could take weeks, even months, before Wilken rules.

Instead, she ordered O’Bannon’s lawyers to revise the lawsuit to fix some legal technicalities, including explicating adding current players to the lawsuit. Lawyer Michael Hausfeld said he will file a new lawsuit that includes current players, but will seek to keep their names confidential. “They are afraid of retaliation,” Hausfeld told the court. NCAA lawyer Greg Curtner is against certifying the lawsuit as a class action, arguing that the claims of thousands of collegiate athletes are too different to be treated the same. For instance, certain athletes bring in more revenue than others and have different legal claims at stake. The NCAA argues that many of the athletes receive scholarships in exchange for playing sports and to pay student athletes would ruin amateur athletics. To pay athletes more than that would ruin collegiate sports, the NCAA argues. The debate over compensating college players is almost as old as the NCAA, founded in 1906.

the Boston Bandits semi-pro team. Media camped out Thursday at Hernandez’s home, on the Rhode Island state line not far from the Patriots’ stadium in Foxborough. A news helicopter followed along as Hernandez drove in a white SUV from his home to the stadium, then got out and went inside. Patriots spokesman Stacey James said the team had no comment on why Hernandez was there. He said earlier that the team did not anticipate commenting publicly during the police investigation. A Massachusetts State Police emergency response team on Thursday was searching the brush with metal detectors and poles on a road leading to the entrance to Hernandez’s subdivision. Hernandez lawyer Michael Fee acknowledged media reports about the state police search of Hernandez’s home as part of an investigation but said he and the player wouldn’t have any comment on it. Lloyd’s mother, Ursula Ward, would not say how Lloyd knew Hernandez and did not say whether police told her how her son died. An uncle said Lloyd had a connection to Hernandez but wouldn’t elaborate.

MIAMI — New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, already connected to a homicide victim in Massachusetts, is being sued in South Florida by a man claiming Hernandez shot him in the face after they argued at a strip club. The lawsuit filed late Wednesday by 30-year-old Alexander Bradley comes as police in New England investigate the death of 27-year-old semi-pro player Odin Lloyd. Lloyd’s body was found in an industrial park near Hernandez’s home in North Attleborough, Mass. Lloyd’s family has said he had some connection to Hernandez but would not elaborate. In his federal lawsuit seeking at least $100,000 in damages, Bradley claims he and Hernandez were with a group in February at Tootsie’s club in Miami when the two got into an argument. Later, as they were driving to Palm Beach County, Bradley claims Hernandez shot him with a handgun, causing him to lose his right eye. Bradley, who is from Connecticut, also suffers from jaw pain, headaches, permanent injury to his right hand and arm and will probably need further surgery, according to the lawsuit. He has already undergone facial reconstruction surgery and has plates and screws in the right side of his face. Bradley “will require extensive medical care and treatment for the rest of his life,” the four-page lawsuit says. Bradley did not mention Hernandez in a Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office report at the time. Bradley, found shot and bleeding Feb. 13 in an alley behind a John Deere store, insisted to investigators he did not know who shot him and gave only a vague description of possible assailants. A store employee found Bradley after hearing a shot outside, but the store’s video surveillance system wasn’t working. Hernandez’s lawyer did not immediately respond Thursday to an email seeking comment about the lawsuit. The lawsuit does not mention how Hernandez and Bradley are acquainted. In another development Thursday, police in Providence, R.I., said Hernandez was taunted in May by a man at a nightclub near the Brown University campus but walked away. The man followed Hernandez for three blocks and a crowd formed, held back by police while Hernandez got into his vehicle and left. Meanwhile, in Massachusetts, family and police were mum on the nature of Hernandez’s relationship to Lloyd, who played for

ROME — Canada’s Jamie Broder and Kristina Valjas won their final round-robin match Thursday but were edged out of a knockout round berth at the FIVB World Tour beach volleyball event. Broder, from Victoria, and Valjas, from Toronto defeated Emilia and Erika Nystrom of Finland 21-18, 21-19. Both teams finished tied for third spot in Group G at 1-2. The Finns advanced as they had the better overall point differential. In men’s play, Ben Saxton of Calgary and Chaim Schalk of Red Deer, Alta., dropped a 24-22, 19-21, 15-13 decision to Clemens Doppler and Alexander Horst of Austria. The Canadians must win on Friday to have a shot at advancing to the knockout round.

Extendicare facing strike ROYALS RECRUITING The Red Deer Royals are recruiting. Any youth between the age of 12 and 20, and with at least two years experience on a woodwind, brass or percussion instrument, and those interested in joining the Colour Guard are encouraged to audition. On Monday and Tuesday at 7 p.m. at Westerner Park, at 4847A 19th St., people are invited to attend meetings and auditions.

ABOUT 1,200 SENIORS CARE STAFF VOTE OVERWHELMING TO STRIKE BY SUSAN ZIELINSKI ADVOCATE STAFF Health-care staff at Extendicare Michener Hill voted overwhelming to strike in a vote held on Wednesday. About 1,200 seniors care staff with Alberta Union of Provincial Employees are voting at eight Extendicare sites provincewide after Extendicare rejected the majority of a mediator’s recommendations for settlement. AUPE negotiator Kevin Davediuk said 98.9 per cent of staff who voted in Red Deer voted to strike. He said that AUPE has probably never achieved such a mandate before in its history. As of Thursday, six of the eight Alberta

votes have been held. “The vote percentages for a strike are very similar to Red Deer. We’ve never had turnout or support like this in a strike vote,” Davediuk said on Thursday. The last vote will happen in Athabasca on June 27. The union says Extendicare is pushing for net earnings rollbacks; drastic reductions to sick time that would force staff to work sick, creating hazards for both staff and residents; and the lowest number of named holidays in any health-care agreement in Alberta. It is the first time all eight Extendicare sites in Athabasca, Mayerthorpe, Edmonton, Red Deer, Calgary and Lethbridge have bargained together. Extendicare Michener Hill has 300 to 325 AUPE members. They include licensed

practical nurses, health-care aides, therapy support staff, maintenance workers and food service staff. Registered nurses are not included. Red Deer workers have been without a contract since Dec. 31. Due to the magnitude of the dispute, the mediator has asked Extendicare and AUPE to meet again. Talks are set for July 2 and 5. “If there’s not a deal by then, we’ll commence serving strike notice,” Davediuk said. It would probably be some form of rotating strike, he said. “We’re not going to put the system in jeopardy. We’re going to be real careful. Staff are very concerned about resident care and families.”

Motorists traveling down Gaetz Avenue are now greeted by an arch over Little Gaetz Ave.

Archway finally heralds Gaetz Ave. transformation BY CRYSTAL RHYNO ADVOCATE STAFF A large archway with the word “downtown” is moving the $9-million transformation of Gaetz Avenue to its finale. The archway was placed over the entrance on Gaetz Avenue, just north of 52nd Street, on Thursday. Charity Dyke, Greater Downtown co-ordinator, said there’s only some minor road work remaining in the multi-year redevelopment project. Dyke said the archway creates a much-needed visual cue for visitors to Red Deer and those living in the city. When visiting the city in 2011, Roger Brooks, a Seattle-

based expert on downtown revitalization, said he could not find Red Deer’s downtown. Brooks asked others staying at a local hotel and they didn’t know either. Brooks said Red Deer’s downtown needs defined districts, a brand, clustered speciality businesses and better signs. The city is searching for its “identity” in its Uncover Red Deer project and is making some progress on its major Greater Downtown Action Plan involving Historic Downtown, Railyards and Riverlands, the three districts that make up the downtown. “We need people to visit the downtown and we need people to live in the downtown,” said

Dyke. “The important part of that is people need to know where our downtown is.” Dyke said they want people to visit the stores, the restaurants and the activities happening in the downtown. A ribbon-cutting ceremony with fun activities for the whole family is slated for July 12. “Celebrate our centennial year and the completion of the Gaetz Avenue revitalization,” she said. Since 2011, crews have been repaving the streets, adding paving stones, old-fashioned street lights, more trees and sidewalk enhancements on Gaetz Avenue.

The City of Red Deer is searching for the right person to lead the redevelopment of Riverlands. A project manager would report to Kim Fowler, the city’s director of planning, but would be responsible for overall project planning and co-ordination and management of smaller sub-projects. Riverlands is considered to be Red Deer’s preeminent project and will create the future identity of the city. In 2011, Red Deer city council approved the Riverlands Area Redevelopment Project, which essentially transforms the downtown industrial area into a vibrant new community. The temporary 14-month position comes with a salary range between $97,000 to $121,000. Her or she would be responsible for $21 million in assessed value of 75 acres of land (before development). Red Deer city council approved the position at budget time in January. Fowler said the person would essentially get the project underway and up to a marketable stage. This is one of the three major plans within the Greater Downtown Action Plan. Coun. Paul Harris reasoned this position cannot be put on the desks of city staffers. He said there is a specific skill set needed that will help transform a piece of land that will “put Red Deer on the map.” The ideal candidate would have a degree in urban planning or land economics, experience in project management, comprehension of municipal land development and other skills. The posting closes on June 28.

Pipelines have few safeguards: expert BY PAUL COWLEY ADVOCATE STAFF SUNDRE — Despite the high environmental and health stakes, most oil companies’ pipeline leak detection systems offer few safeguards, says a U.S. pipeline safety expert. Nineteen out of 20 pipeline leaks went undetected by remote sensors from 2002 to 2012, according to data from the U.S. Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration published by Only one out of five leaks over 42,000 U.S. Anthony Swift gallons (159,000 litres) was detected by sensors, said Anthony Swift, an attorney and pipeline safety expert from the New York Citybased Natural Resources Defense Council. “They are missing a large number of very large spills,” said Swift, who spoke to about 20 people at Eagle Hill Community Hall, 20 km northeast of Sundre, on Wednesday as part of a three-stop tour in Alberta on pipeline safety. The forums were co-hosted by the Alberta Surface Rights Group, Greenpeace, Council of Canadians and Sierra Club. Most spills are found by oil company workers or landowners. Albertans shouldn’t feel any better protected. Canadian pipeline standards require a leak of five per cent of a pipeline’s capacity to be identified within five minutes. If the leak is from two to five per cent,

regulations require it to be detected within a week, and for a leak of one to two per cent, companies have a month. Below one per cent of capacity, there is no detection requirement. Better detection technology is out there, said Swift. It is used in Germany, where more stringent requirements have kept spills to a minimum. However, North American companies have been slow to follow. Failing to act quickly can be disastrous. In Michigan in July 2010, a pipeline operated by Calgary-based Enbridge Inc. ruptured at a tributary of the Kalamazoo River, spilling about 3.2 million litres of diluted bitumen from the oilsands. The leak went undetected for hours and cleanup cost close to $1 billion. Closer to home, there have been a number of recent spills. Apache Canada is still trying to figure out what caused its pipeline to leak about 9.5 million litres of contaminated water from oil production earlier this month. Also this month, Plains Midstream had to clean up about 950 barrels of natural gas liquids and byproducts spilled in northwestern Alberta. Plains was also the company behind a 3,000-barrel oil spill into the Red Deer River near Sundre a year ago. In 2011, a Plains pipeline leaked 28,000 barrels of oil northeast of Peace River. Alberta Surface Rights Group president Don Bester said regulators are doing a worse job of checking pipelines than they did when he was in the business in the 1970s and ’80s. “The regulation has got tougher. The enforcement has gone to zero,” he said. Doug Malsbury, who raises cattle a few

kilometres east of Penhold, wants to know why the government is hanging on to a longawaited report on pipeline safety. Alberta Energy Minister Ken Hughes promised on Monday to release the report for public comment this summer. Malsbury, a member of the surface rights group, is skeptical. The report — which he suspects is full of bad news — will only come out if U.S. President Barack Obama has already approved the Keystone XL pipeline transporting oilsands crude to Gulf Coast refineries. If that doesn’t happen? “I don’t think we’ll ever see (the report), to tell you the truth.” Malsbury said he has two high-pressure ethane lines running through his property and Nova Chemicals diligently checks them by plane twice a week and sends him testing results. “If Nova can do it, why can’t Apache or PennWest (Exploration)?” he said. Swift said some oil and gas companies do their jobs well. But in the absence of strong regulations, too often there is a “race to the bottom,” he said. Those present were urged to keep the pressure on government to do a better job of regulating pipeline safety. Mike Hudema, of Greenpeace, pointed out the province’s pipeline safety report was ordered only after 55 groups joined together to demand it. Albertans must make their voices heard to get action at the government level, he said. “There comes a tipping point when I believe (politicians) need to listen.”

Bail to be considered for robbery, shooting accused

Standoff suspect ordered to trial

Bail is to be addressed next week for one of two Red Deer men accused of shooting and robbing a third man in the rural area southwest of Sylvan Lake on June 3. Daniel Huddlestone, 34, and Cameron Monkman, 28, are charged with offences including attempted murder, armed robbery, aggravated assault and various firearms offences in connection with the alleged crime. Sylvan Lake RCMP say the wounded man was found walking along a road. RCMP further allege that both suspects are members of an outlaw motorcycle club, the Malicious Crew, which is believed to have connections with the Hells Angels. Monkman was released last week on $2,000 cash bail. Huddlestone remains in custody pending his bail application, scheduled for Red Deer provincial court on June 27. Both suspects have reserved pleas to that date

One of the suspects arrested after a police standoff in Red Deer on May 14 has been ordered to stand trial. David Kertesz, 27, was arrested by Red Deer City RCMP investigating reports of a kidnapping and armed robbery in the Pines subdivision at about 2 a.m. Police determined that suspects had holed up in a residence on Halman Crescent. A standoff ensued during which several suspects were taken into custody. Kertesz faces 18 charges as a result of the incident, including kidnapping, armed robbery, extortion, forcible confinement and a variety of firearms offences. Represented by Red Deer lawyer Lorne Goddard, he pleaded not guilty in Red Deer provincial court on Thursday and asked to be tried by Court of Queen’s Bench judge alone. A date for his trial is to be set during his arraignment, scheduled for July 12. Also charged was Garnet Colby Mcinnes, 22, who was arrested later in the month in connection with a series of incidents, including the alleged kidnapping and robbery on May 14. Mcinnes has not yet entered pleas on the charges he is facing. Both men remain in custody.

Sylvan Drive In Movie rescheduled The Town of Sylvan Lake has rescheduled its Drive in Movie to June 28 due to an inclement weather forecast. The movie Goonies was suppose to be shown on Friday, June 14, during 1913 Days. The movie will now be shown at 10:30 p.m. on June 28 in the Canadian Tire parking lot Admission to the movie is free but Canadian Tire staff will be on hand to accept donations to its Jumpstart program. Viewers just have to turn their radio dial to 87.9 FM to enjoy the show.

Sufferers of stiff joints may get a small amount of relief thanks to a grant. A sum of $3,000 has been granted to the Arthritis Society, Alberta and Northwest Territories Division by the Red Deer and District Community Foundation. “We are very grateful to the Red Deer and District Community Foundation for recognizing that people suffering from arthritis can benefit from education programs that help them learn to self-manage this disease,” said Liz Kehler, education and services manager for the Arthritis Society, in a press release. The grant will help subsidize the society’s education and volunteer coordinator, who trains and mobilizes volunteer education facilitators in Red Deer and area.

noon and 4 p.m. Michener supporters and AUPE members are invited to participate. The Keep Michener Open campaign will continue throughout the summer. So far, more than 15,000 signatures have been collected and the goal is to reach 30,000. The petition will be presented in the legislature in the fall. The province announced in March that the centre for people with developmental disabilities will close and that 125 residents from there will be relocated, starting in September. The announcement was unexpected. In 2008, the province promised that residents, whose average age is 60, could remain at Michener until they die. AUPE anticipates as many as 400 of Michener’s 640 staff will be laid off, redeployed or retrained.

Household debt ratio falls Canadian household indebtedness has taken another step back from last year’s highs, with the closely watched debt-to-income ratio dropping to a still-high 161.8 per cent in the first quarter of 2013. Statistics Canada reported Thursday that it was the second quarterly decline in a row in the ratio of household debt to disposable income. It was at 162.76 in the third quarter of 2012 and fell to 162.62 per cent in the fourth quarter of last year. It was the third consecutive quarter in which Canadian household debt grew more slowly than assets. Statistics Canada said that household net worth advanced 1.9 per cent in the first quarter, led by gains in the value of equity holdings and pension assets.

Cineplex beefs up movie tickets Canadians who would like to own the films they’ve just seen at the theatre will soon have a chance to double-up at the boxoffice, as part of an agreement between Cineplex Inc. (TSX:CGX) and several major Hollywood studios. The country’s largest theatre chain is about the launch SuperTicket, a hybrid of both a movie admission and a digital download of the same film. When moviewatchers buy their Cineplex ticket either online or at the box office, they’ll also have the option to pre-order a digital copy of the same film. The online version will become available to them around the time it’s headed to DVD. The digital copies will be in UltraViolet, which allows sharing of the digital downloads on multiple devices like desktop, laptop and tablet computers or smartphones. Cineplex says it’s a first for the movie industry, which has been looking for new ways to boost sales of home entertainment, as the popularity of physical media begins to fade. — The Canadian Press

Renters facing tougher time AS VACANCY RATE DIPS, COST FOR RENTING RISES BY HARLEY RICHARDS ADVOCATE BUSINESS EDITOR It’s taking more and more legwork to find an apartment in Red Deer these days. But you’d better be sitting down when it comes time to discuss rent. Vacancy rates in the city continue to fall, according to Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp.’s spring 2013 rental market survey, the results of which were released on Thursday. And with these declines have been a corresponding rise in rental costs. The survey, which was conducted in April, calculated the local vacancy rate for two-bedroom apartments at 1.8 per cent, down from 2.5 per cent for the same month in 2012 and 3.8 per cent in April 2011. And two-bedroom units were the most plentiful type of apartment. The average vacancy rate for bachelor suites was 0.7 per cent (down from 3.5 per cent in April 2012), for one-bedroom apartments it was 1.4 per cent (down from 1.7 per cent) and for three-bedrooms it was one

per cent (down from 1.5 per cent) — for an overall average of 1.6 per cent (down from 2.2 per cent last spring and 6.4 per cent two years ago). The CMHC survey found that the average monthly cost of a two-bedroom apartment in Red Deer in April was $902. That compares with $843 the previous spring and $820 in 2011. The average overall rent in April was $840, up from $781 a year earlier and $767 in 2011. Rental costs this spring ranged from $571 for a bachelor suite (up from $558 last April) to $1,009 for three-bedroom accommodation (up from $955). One-bedroom units climbed to $762 from $714. Among urban centres in Alberta with 10,000 or more people, the overall apartment vacancy rate in April was 1.5 per cent, as compared with three per cent a year earlier. “Employment gains and heightened levels of net migration pushed vacancies lower in most of the province’s urban markets between the two survey periods,” said Lai Sing Louie, a CMHC regional economist.

The year-over-year vacancy rate in the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo tumbled to 2.8 per cent from 10.8 per cent, with CMHC attributing this to oilsands investment and a growing labour market. A two-bedroom apartment in Wood Buffalo averaged $2,229 in April. At the other end of the spectrum was Lethbridge, with an April vacancy rate of 6.9 per cent, down from 7.1 per cent. The average rent in the Southern Alberta city was $816, as compared with $820 the previous year. In Lacombe, the overall apartment vacancy rate fell to 0.4 per cent in April, as compared with 4.9 per cent the previous year. But in Sylvan Lake the vacancy rate was calculated at 1.5 per cent, up from 1.1 per cent. The average rent for all types of apartments in Lacombe was down slightly in April, to $816 from $820. In Sylvan Lake, overall rents were up to an average of $859, from $805.

Alberta tries to ease process for temporary foreign workers to stay BY HARLEY RICHARDS ADVOCATE BUSINESS EDITOR The Alberta government is trying to make the federal temporary foreign workers program less temporary. Deputy Premier Thomas Lukaszuk announced on Thursday that temporary foreign workers in the province will now be allowed to apply for permanent residency under the Alberta immigrant nominee program — which the province administers in conjunction with the federal government. Previously, nominations had to be made by employers. “There is no guarantee that every worker that will apply for this process will be nominated because we still have a federal cap of how many workers can stay per annum,” said Lukaszuk during a news conference at a lumber mill in Acheson. “However, this will make the process simpler and transfer the decision to the worker from the employer.” Lukaszuk, who is also Alberta’s minister of Enterprise and Advanced Education, explained that employers

Chronic joblessness puts youth at risk THE CANADIAN PRESS

The change to the Alberta immigrant nominee program applies to temporary foreign workers who have been employed for at least two years in an occupation that has a chronic shortage of workers. Those eligible to apply can do so until Nov. 28, 2013. “That is good news to Alberta employers,” said Lukaszuk.

Young Canadians are at risk of chronic unemployment as growing numbers are graduating well-educated, but with no work experience, a CIBC report suggests. About 420,000 youth aged 15 to 24 — or nearly one in 10 young Canadians — are neither employed nor enrolled in school, the report found. The economic reality for young Canadians today is very different than that of previous generations, said CIBC deputy chief economist Benjamin Tal, the report’s author. “They are basically on the sidelines doing nothing,” he said in an interview. “They will not be able to penetrate this very competitive labour market.” In a market where previous experience is essential, youth aren’t able to find the summer jobs and part-time work required to build a resume, Tal said.

That’s forced some to choose between individuals when seeking to retain foreign workers on a permanent basis. Lukaszuk stressed the importance of temporary foreign workers to Alberta’s economy. Currently, he said, there are some 70,000 such employees in the province — not far be-

hind the peak of 75,000 prior to the economic downturn in 2008. Lukaszuk said his government’s priority is still to train and employ Albertans and Canadians. But the demographic reality is that there are insufficient people to keep pace with employers’ needs, and it’s better to hire and train foreign workers as permanent staff rather than as temporary ones.

WORKERS: Stability expected “It will provide them with a more permanent workforce, where they will not be continuously training workers and then after four years sending them back to their countries of origin and having a revolving door labour force. “That will bring stability to our communities, as we will have permanent neighbours, permanent coworkers, permanent friends.” The Alberta government has made several other modifications to the Alberta immigrant nominee program during the past month. These were designed to make it easier for employers to nominate temporary foreign workers in high-demand occupations, including in the manufacturing, hospitality and trucking industries. Jonathan Seib, policy co-ordinator with the Red Deer Chamber of Commerce, welcomes the province’s efforts in this regard. “What they’re doing is trying to ensure that they capitalize on the full 5,500 certificates that they can give out as part of the Alberta immigrant nominee program.” Obtaining those certificates became more difficult last month, after the federal government tightened some of the rules governing its temporary foreign worker program. The province’s subsequent changes to the Alberta immigrant nominee program should help counter these, said Seib. “That’s going to really make sure we take full advantage of the number of certificates that the federal government allows us.” The Red Deer Chamber has been pushing to make the temporary foreign worker program more accessible to Alberta businesses. At the recent Alberta Chambers of Commerce conference and policy session, it sponsored a successful resolution calling upon the federal government to reverse some of its changes to the program, and to implement others that will make it more effective. Next Tuesday, officials from the Chamber and local businesses are scheduled to meet with federal Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism Minister Jason Kenney in Red Deer. That same day, Chamber executive director Tim Creedon and representatives of the Alberta Chambers of Commerce will chat with Lukaszuk and Alberta International and Intergovernmental Relations Minister Cal Dallas. “We’re hitting as many fronts as we can,” said Seib. “This is the Number 1 issue on our radar.”

EVOLVE: Partnership On the project, the students have been able to see two housing innovators come together. Landmark specializes in custom builds and pre-fabrication at its Edmonton plant, while Avalon has been in-

volved in the construction of five carbon neutral homes since 2004 in partnership with SAIT. The 1,858-squarefoot, narrow two-storey infill-style home being built in Red Deer is similar to the Discovery 5 Net Zero home built by Avalon last year, but without many of the bells and whistles that made the Calgary-built house fully carbon neutral. “(The Evolve home) is going to be really close to that level. “It’s going to put energy back into the grid. It’s going to be designed ultra-efficiently; it’s not going to use a lot of electricity,” explained Trevor Gamelin, operations manager with Avalon Central Alberta. Building of the house exterior was completed on Thursday, and once the foundation is ready on the Clarks’ Sylvan Lake lot, it will be disassembled and moved out to the community. The build/disassemble/move/rebuild model is possible because of the partnership, said Gamelin. With Avalon’s past builds at SAIT, the resulting moves have been done with the homes whole, a process that has cost up to $100,000 and required the blocking off of roads and taking down of utilities. Landmark general manager Lorne Erickson said his company fits somewhere between ‘mainstream’ and ‘experimental’ and hopes other builders will see such a project and develop their own ideas for sustainable, nontraditional builds. He hopes those in the market for a newly-built home explore their options for unconventional builds. As part of the project, the Clarks are paying full market value for the home and the builders are donating any profit they would normally make back to the college. That money that will go towards RDC scholarships.

YOUTH: One in five has never held a job “Now, while more education is positive, increasingly, students are completing their education without any work experience and are more likely to be caught in the no job—no experience, and no experience—no job cycle,” he said in the report.

One in five unemployed youth, aged 15 to 24, has never held a job, Tal found. That’s 40 per cent higher than the long-term average and close to the record high of the 1990s. “The current environment of part-time work, temporary jobs, corporate and government restructuring and downsizing is especially tough on young people whose lack of experience and seniority make them much more vulnerable to labour market changes,” Tal said in the report. Youth are more educated than ever before. While the percentage of youth aged 15 to 19 who are enrolled in school is relatively static, students seem to be in school longer. Enrolment rates in the 20- to 24-year-old age group are rapidly increasing, with 44 per cent currently in school, the report found. One major problem area Tal highlighted is the transition youth undergo moving from school to workforce. Policy-makers need to create options in which education and work-related training are combined, Tal said. This would allow youth to find jobs while in school and close the learning gap that exists when students transition into the work world. A university degree in any subject is no longer enough, he said. Instead, youth need to choose disciplines that offer practical experience and long-term employment opportunities. Taking advanced courses and networking with people are two ways that high school students can distinguish themselves. Youth today have more opportunities than ever before to creatively make a name for themselves and improve their clout in a competitive job market, such as using online platforms for networking, Tal said. “Do whatever it takes to make you different,” he said in an interview. The youth unemployment rate is more than double the unemployment rate for Canadians aged 25 and older — a record-high ratio that needs to be addressed, Tal said. “For Canada’s economy to grow and our standard of living to remain high, this is an imperative,” he said in the report. The Canadian education system must find ways to incorporate skills that enhance students’ employability directly into the curriculum, Tal said.

MARKETS CLOSE TORONTO — The Toronto stock market headed deeper into the red for a second day Thursday after the U.S. central bank signalled that investors will have to get used to less economic stimulus and ultimately higher interest rates. The S&P/TSX composite index ended its worst single-day sell-off since April 15 by closing down 299.71 points or 2.44 per cent at 11,968.57. That left the TSX down 465 points or 3.75 per cent so far this year. The slide cut across all sectors as the TSX was also caught up in headwinds resulting from a disappointing read on Chinese manufacturing, which sent prices for oil and copper tumbling. The greatest damage to market sentiment came from the Fed after chairman Ben Bernanke signalled an end to the central bank’s US$85 billion of bond purchases each month, likely slowing later this year and ending in 2014. The timing depends on economic data. The Canadian dollar also got caught up in the volatility, tumbling 0.94 of a cent to 96.4 cents US. New York’s Dow industrials and the S&P 500 posted their biggest losses of the year. The Dow plummeted 353.87 points to 14,758.32 after dropping 206 points Wednesday, while the Nasdaq fell 78.57 points to 3,364.63 and the S&P 500 index lost 40.74 points to 1,588.19. The Fed has been buying bonds as a way of keeping long-term interest rates low in the hope of boosting borrowing and spending. But the inflow of cash into financial markets has also helped fuel a boom on many world markets, including New York where the Dow industrials had been up more than 16 per cent on the year. That rally, which extended to Europe and Japan, left Toronto in the dust, in large part because the TSX is so heavily weighted in favour of resource stocks that have suffered because of a sluggish global recovery. Analysts say that investors weren’t expecting Bernanke to say the program could end so quickly, and are now having to adjust their holdings to anticipate higher U.S. interest rates. Thursday’s market slide was the latest instance of volatility that started May 22 when Bernanke first mentioned that the U.S. central bank could be ready to start tapering its bond purchases. Indications of such a slowdown of bond purchases have also had the effect of sending bond yields higher. That is because prices would be impacted by the Fed not buying as many bonds. When bond prices are depressed, the yield moves higher. The benchmark U.S. 10-year Treasury was down from early highs but still at 2.42 per cent late Thursday afternoon, up sharply from 2.25 per

cent before the Fed’s announcement Wednesday afternoon. The yield had been as low as 1.6 per cent at the beginning of May. Those rising yields have caused big problems for another part of the market — interest rate sensitive stocks on the TSX such as utilities, telecoms, REITs and pipelines. Resource stocks have also taken a beating on the TSX, reflecting lower commodity prices and sluggish global growth, with the base metals sector is down 16 per cent this month and 30 per cent year to date. Those stocks fell steeply Thursday after HSBC said that the preliminary version of its monthly purchasing managers index for China fell to a nine-month low of 48.3 in June, down from 49.6 in May. Numbers below 50 indicate a contraction in the manufacturing sector. Commodities slid as a result of demand concerns following the disappointing Chinese data and the higher U.S. dollar. A higher U.S. dollar pressures commodities because a stronger greenback makes it more expensive for holders of other currencies to buy oil and metals, which are dollar-denominated. The price of copper on the New York Mercantile Exchange lost eight cents to US$3.06 a pound, leaving the base metals sector down almost five per cent. Gold has also suffered mightily, with the TSX global gold sector down more than 40 per cent year to date after dropping more than seven per cent Thursday. Gold stocks have already had a tough time as the bottom line of miners has been under pressure from rising costs to get the ore out of the ground. On top of that, bullion prices have been slammed. Aggressive monetary stimulus programs by central banks have supported gold prices since the 2008 financial crisis and subsequent recession, partly because of worries about inflation. But prices have eroded as inflation remains tame and the global economic outlook continues to improve. On Thursday, gold fell $87.80 to US$1,286.20 an ounce, putting it below $1,300 for the first time in nearly three years. Goldcorp Inc. (TSX:G) faded $2.12 to C$24.81 while Barrick Gold Corp. (TSX:ABX) declined $1.45 to $17.10. The July crude contract fell $2.84 to US$95.40 a barrel, pushing the energy sector down 2.3 per cent. Suncor Energy (TSX:SU) gave back 68 cents to C$30.83. The utilities sector gave back 4.74 per cent while TransAlta Corp. (TSXL:TA) declined 48 cents to $12.91. The telecom sector shed 2.27 per cent and BCE Inc. (TSX:BCE) was down 97 cents to $43.15.

Rona takes rebuilding step with sale Boies. “The biggest factor (in the sale) is to focus internally on running what we’re really good at, which is a retail, hardware operation and really focusing on the profession and the contractor business in lumber and building materials.” Although the division contributed less than 10 per cent of the company’s overall revenues, it required a lot of capital and attention from executives, Boies said. The sale is the Montreal-area company’s first major transaction since new chief executive Robert Sawyer stepped into the role in April after holding various other positions in the retail industry.

BY THE CANADIAN PRESS MONTREAL — An effort to rebuild struggling hardware retailer Rona is moving ahead with the planned sale of its commercial and professional division for $215 million. The operations, which focused on plumbing, heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems, will be acquired by EMCO subsidiary Talisker Plumbing Corp., the company announced Thursday. Rona (TSX:RON) created the division when it acquired commercial trades supplier Noble in 2007. “It’s one step in the right direction,” said chief financial officer Dominique

Mounties broaden senate expense probe appointed to the Senate by former prime minister Jean Chretien. He quit the Liberal caucus and now sits as an independent, pending the outcome of his court action. In his application, Harb says he lived in a rented apartment in central Ottawa when he was an MP. However, shortly after his appointment to the Senate, he purchased a house in the Pembroke area and consulted with Paul Belisle, then Senate clerk, about whether he was entitled to declare his new house as his primary residence. Since it was more than 100 kilometres outside the national capital region, Belisle informed Harb he could declare it as his primary residence and claim a housing allowance and living expenses for a secondary residence in Ottawa. Harb says he followed all the rules and that Sen-

BY THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA — The police investigation into the Senate expenses scandal grew wider Thursday with the release of court documents that indicate the Mounties are now looking into a second senator. Documents released from the Ottawa courthouse show the RCMP’s Sensitive and International Investigations unit has obtained property records for a house in Cobden, Ont., once owned by Sen. Mac Harb. Property records show Harb sold the house at 62 Durack Line Rd. in Cobden, about 120 kilometres west of Ottawa, two years ago. The court documents mark the first acknowledgment that the RCMP is investigating Harb. Cpl. Lucy Shorey, a spokeswoman for the RCMP, declined further comment. “We are not in a position to comment any further at this time,” Shorey wrote in an email. The name “Project Amble” is written under the heading “Nature of Event” on the exhibit report. It’s unclear if the name refers only to the Harb investigation or to the Senate probe more broadly. Harb, a Liberal who now sits as an independent, is among the senators in trouble for improperly claimed living expenses. Following an external audit, Harb was ordered to repay $51,500 in housing and living expenses claimed over the twoyear period of the audit. But the Senate has since demanded that he repay $231,649, covering eight years. Harb filed a court application Monday to have the Senate’s repayment order quashed. Harb was an Ottawa city councillor from 198588 and represented the riding of Ottawa Centre as a Liberal MP from 1988-2003, when he was

ate administration and finance officials approved his residency declarations and his expense claims. Although the external auditors concluded the rules were not clear, Harb says the Senate’s internal economy committee disregarded that conclusion, imposed stiffer criteria for declaring primary residency and then applied it retroactively to him. Harb also argues that the internal economy committee was not impartial, that the Prime Minister’s Office interfered in its decisions and that he was denied his right to legal counsel and a fair hearing. Sen. Patrick Brazeau, a former Conservative who now also sits as an independent, is also vowing to go to court to fight the Senate’s order that he repay $48,745 in improperly claimed living expenses. Harb’s lawyer said Thursday the senator was unaware the RCMP was looking into his expenses.

Canadian troops arrive in Kabul OTTAWA — The final rotation of Canadian troops destined for the training mission in Afghanistan began to trickle into the war-ravaged country this week. It is happening as NATO military planners come to grips with one of the greatest challenges of the war — recovering thousands of vehicles and tonnes of equipment after more than a decade in the field. Just over 100 soldiers from bases in Edmonton and Shilo, Man., boarded a transport plane for Kabul where Canada’s commitment to the Afghan military will continue until its mandated conclusion on March 31 next year. Roughly 900 Canadians still serve in Afghanistan.

OTTAWA — The Defence Department appears to have broken the law by failing to publish the latest personal information listings of Canada’s electronic eavesdropping agency. Under federal privacy law, ministers are obliged to list the personal data banks — which hold information about individuals — compiled by agencies in their portfolios. However, there is no public listing this year for Communications Security Establishment Canada, known as CSEC, which reports to the defence minister. The omission has prompted University of Ottawa professor Amir Attaran to lodge a complaint with the federal privacy watchdog. The issue arises amid concerns about the sort of personal information CSEC and its close American ally, the National Security Agency, is collecting.

Two killed in blast at fireworks warehouse BY THE CANADIAN PRESS COTEAU-DU-LAC, Que. — A massive explosion at a fireworks warehouse killed two female employees as it rattled homes and sent up a cloud of smoke that could be seen for kilometres outside Montreal. The subsequent fire then prompted a shutdown of the adjacent highway, causing a huge traffic jam, and an evacuation of dozens of homes, businesses, a campground, and a school. Provincial police said the bodies of two female employees were found in the wreckage. The initial explosion at B.E.M. Fireworks occurred just before 9 a.m. Thursday and completely destroyed the building, which was reduced to charred scraps. A series of sparkly blasts followed. Those multicoloured clusters popped above the rest of the thick, dark smoke emanating from the blast site, located near Valleyfield, Que., roughly 60 kilometres southwest of Montreal. The original blast vibrations could be felt for kilometres and the smoke was also visible from neighbouring municipalities. About 150 firefighters, from 14 different departments, were called in. “We got really, really, really scared,� said Ginette



Liboiron, who runs a convenience store across the highway overpass. “I thought my store was falling to the ground. It shook like you can’t imagine... We all went outside to see and saw the big, incredible smoke. “Then the fireworks went off.� According to its website, B.E.M. has been designing and manufacturing pyrotechnics and fireworks for 25 years. One area resident said the explosion scared her cats. Another said his dog slammed into a wall. The two panicked felines went scampering under the bed. Madeleine Boucher said she watched the explosion from her window 700 metres away. “It was impressive,� she said, joking that the incident would have prettier at night. “Wasn’t very pleasant, though... I wouldn’t say I was scared for myself, no, but I’d have been scared if I lived closer.� Another man, whose dog slammed into the wall, was about to have breakfast with his wife. Roland Desforges says his wife thought the explosion might have been a plane crash or an act of war. But he says he instantly suspected it might be the neighbouring fireworks plant. He says he went to the overpass to get a look. He believes the initial explosion occurred in the middle of three buildings on the compound: in the

production plant, which he says is centred between the fireworks store and its storage facility. “In seconds there was nothing left,� Desforges, 68, said of the plant. The company occupies a sprawling property near Highway 20 that includes a store and warehouse. According to the Quebec business registry, the company employs between six and 10 people. An investigation into the blast cause is underway. But the provincial government has already expressed some concerns about a lack of fire hydrants near the site. Fire crews struggled to access water as the closest hydrants were on the other side of the highway. The town’s mayor, Robert Sauve, justified that absence of hydrants next to a pyrotechnics plant by saying it had been there for decades. The area evacuees were allowed to return home in the afternoon. Liboiron said she has run the nearby store for 37 years and had never worried about being next to the fireworks factory. That indifference went up in a monumental puff of smoke. “It was gigantic,� she said. “It went high up in the air, then it became black, black, black.�

today is very different than that of previous generations, said CIBC deputy chief economist Benjamin Tal, the report’s author. “They are basically on the sidelines doing nothing,� he said in an interview. “They will not be able to penetrate this very competitive labour market.� In a market where previous experience is essential, youth aren’t able to find the summer jobs and part-time work required to build a resume, Tal said. “Now, while more education is positive, increasingly, students are completing their education without any work experience and are more likely to be caught in the no job—no experience, and no experience—no job cycle,� he said in the report. One in five unemployed youth, aged 15 to 24, has never held a job, Tal found. That’s 40 per cent higher than the long-term average and close to the record high of the 1990s.

“The current environment of part-time work, temporary jobs, corporate and government restructuring and downsizing is especially tough on young people whose lack of experience and seniority make them much more vulnerable to labour market changes,� Tal said in the report.

WINNIPEG — Almost two dozen children have been seized from a devout southern Manitoba Mennonite community amid charges that youngsters were assaulted with cattle prods, whips and leather straps. Documents from Manitoba Family Services show the youngest of 23 children taken from their homes is nine months old; the oldest is 15. The documents don’t detail alleged abuse but do say one 13-year-old boy “does not want to return home.� Two adults from the tiny orthodox community were charged in March with various counts of assault and assault with a weapon on several boys and girls between July 2011 and January of this year. Court documents listed a whip, a prod, a board and a leather strap as weapons. This week, two more adults appeared in court to face similar charges involving 12 alleged victims. The allegations are similar — that the assaults were repeated and over roughly the same 18-month time frame. The two were released pending their next court appearance. Court documents show the children seized are from five families, including one family of nine kids ranging in age from one to 13.

MONTREAL — The wife of Canada’s former spy watchdog will spend at least one more weekend in detention while a judge considers whether to grant her bail. Lawyers representing Arthur Porter’s wife, Pamela, argued for her freedom Thursday during a bail hearing in Montreal. Quebec court Judge Robert Marchi heard arguments and decided to deliver a decision on Tuesday morning, after Quebec’s holiday long weekend. Pamela Porter, 52, is accused of helping her husband, the former head of Security Intelligence Review Committee and of the McGill University Health Centre, launder millions of dollars. She has been detained since being arrested by authorities in Panama on May 26th. She has remained behind bars since being returned to Canada. The evidence presented was subject to a publication ban. Porter herself took the stand as did two police officers with Quebec’s anti-corruption squad UPAC who testified on behalf of the Crown. Prosecutors have opposed bail because they believe she is a flight risk. “We have our view that she does constitute a flight risk and freeing her would impact on the confidence of the public on the administration of justice,� said Crown lawyer Marie-Helene Giroux. This is the first time out of 106 arrests made by UPAC where the prosecution is asking an accused remain detained. Others have been granted bail, often on strict conditions and sometimes with hefty monetary deposits. “I believe each coaccused has their own case and different and various factors that are different from this case,� Giroux said. Pamela Porter’s lawyer, Jean-Claude Hebert, declined comment. Porter faces one charge of conspiracy as well as another related to laundering more than $22 million.

Although vocalist Brad Mates recalls “just scraping by” at the beginning when his band of former high school buddies were tirelessly playing bars around Grande Prairie, the group’s mix of original and cover tunes were bursting with spontaneous energy. Over-the-top success hit a decade later, when Emerson Drive became the first Canadian-based country band to reach No. 1 on U.S. charts with Moments in 2006. “There were more opportunities and hit songs,” Mates said — including Testify, I Love This Road, You Still Own Me, Belongs To You and The Extra Mile. But the kind of exuberance the group showed in its earliest days was still remembered as something special. Mates said, “that’s the sound we were chasing after” for the latest Emerson Drive album, Roll. The band members, who are now mostly in their mid 30s, with spouses and kids, self-produced this CD after a two-year lull in recording to try to capture

that unquantifiable ingredient that ignited live performances. “We wanted to take complete control of our music this time around, so that all the weight was on our shoulders,” said Mates, who will perform with Emerson Drive on Saturday, June 29, at the Delburne Agriplex, as a fundraiser for the non-profit Anthony Henday Historical Society (museum). “We thought if it works out well, or if it doesn’t work out well, it’ll still be a positive situation because it pushes you in the studio ... (and) if you’re not pushing the envelope, you’re being safe.” So far, fan reaction to the album has been fantastic. Roll has produced three Top 10 singles: She’s My Kind of Crazy, Let it Roll and the quieter With You. Mates said band members are also thrilled with it. “It’s still an Emerson Drive album,” he added, but one with a harder, rock-flavoured edge. He is particularly fond of Love Hangover, “a dark horse song that will probably never make it as a single.” The lyrics take a sideways look at romance, he said. “At first, you think it’s about somebody who’s had a horrible experience and was completely trashed” by a relationship, but a closer listen will reveal it’s actually about somebody who’s unprepared

for the emotional turbulence love brings. She Always Gets What She Wants is the next single slated for release. “It represents the sound we were going after,” said Mates, who looking back at the last 18 years, sees a blur of concerts, recordings and shared experiences. A few painful memories also surface, such as the 2007 departure and later suicide of the band’s troubled former bassist Patrick Bourque. Fiddler David Pichette is the latest musician to leave the group. He announced in May he wanted to spend more time with his family. “We left on great terms,” said Mates, who with guitarist Danick Dupelle, drummer Mike Melancon and keyboardist Dale Wallace plans to continue as a foursome, with additional contract players hired whenever needed. “There’s so much stuff we’ve gone through as a group. I don’t know how you can bring somebody new in all of a sudden.” Mates added that connection between band members “keeps us working harder to find that, to get back to that, perfect sound.” Tickets to the 8 p.m. concert are $50 (rush seating) from Delburne Hardware, 403-749-3911.

World War Z offers first-rate zombie terror BRAD PITT SPRINTS OVER PLOT HOLES IN THE FILM THAT WOULD SINK A LESSER ACTOR World War Z 2.5 stars (out of four) Rated: 14A Zombie thriller World War Z bites back on the theory that movie stars no longer matter. The undeniably magnetic Brad Pitt sprints over plot holes that would sink a lesser actor. He almost single-handedly saves a picture that appeared doomed from months of rewrites, reshoots and other vexations. At a time when blockbuster movies no longer require Alist talent — quick, can you name the lead actor of current box-office champ Man of Steel? PETER — Pitt demonstrates why he’s HOWELL still worthy of marquee designation. His combination of macho heroics and regular-guy empathy raises pulses and inspires rooting interest in a story that is otherwise filled with howlers, and not just the undead kind. Pitt’s resourceful Gerry Lane somehow manages to find clear highways when all others are clogged with fleeing humans. He travels to zombie zones to acquire info that a simple telephone call or email could have supplied. He makes connections and deductions that would leave Sherlock Holmes scratching his head. But he keeps moving — his battled-tested motto is “movement is life” — and he carries us with him. The zombies seem to abide by the same dictum, since they sprint, climb and leap like undead Olympic athletes. Pitt gets strong support from relative unknowns who make his star shine even brighter: Texas actress Mireille Enos as Lane’s determined wife and mother of their two young daughters; South African actor Fana Mokoena as Lane’s take-charge United Nations boss; Dutch filmmaker Ludi Boeken as a clued-in Mossad agent; and Israeli actress Dan-

Brad Pitt stars in a scene from ‘World War Z.’ iella Kertesz as an impromptu military ally. World War Z also points up the differences between storytelling on the screen and page. Director Marc Forster’s adaptation of the 2006 bestseller by Max Brooks retains the global zombie pandemic angle but dispenses with the past-tense multiple voices of the source novel, a dramatic device that helped make the book more than just another zombie yarn. Much of the book’s astute political and social commentary is similarly stripped out, and there’s only fleeting reference to major occurrences as the zombie horror spreads (“D.C. has gone dark”). An atomic blast glimpsed from an airline window is never explained or referred to again. The reductionism is understandable, though, because you’d need a TV miniseries to get everything in. Forster and his army of screenwriters (including Lost scribe Damon Lindelof) depict the “Great Panic” of worldwide zombie infestation entirely through the weary eyes of Pitt’s Lane, an ace UN investigator who thought he’d retired from a life of scouring international hotspots. Lane’s one-man quest to save the planet gets ludicrous at times, especially when he, possessing only

first-aid medical skills, starts lecturing trained virologists about how the zombie plague spreads. This likely won’t matter to moviegoers hungry for the thrills that World War Z amply provides, which include a harrowing up-close moment that will remind you of a certain Chianti-sipping doctor. The film simply bypasses the brain, offering firstrate set pieces of the mounting zombie terror: from the jammed streets of Philadelphia to a besieged Jerusalem to a threatened airliner, the speedy “Zekes” are just one step behind our hero and always threatening to catch up with him. A third act set inside a World Health Organization lab in Cardiff, Wales, has been understandably described as a tacked-on finale, since it was reportedly shot and added at great expense after early testing found the film wanting. Yet it actually works, providing a welcome change of pace by exchanging skin-crawling suspense for the earlier break-neck action. The whole movie seems in many ways like a fortunate accident. But there’s no doubting the deliberate wisdom of making a star of Pitt’s talent and stature the lead. Peter Howell is a syndicated Toronto Star movie critic.

TORONTO — Dave Foley had familiar company in the recording booth as he laid down voice work for his latest animated feature. Foley played opposite Sean Hayes as an on-screen couple for several episodes during the sixth season of the hit sitcom Will & Grace. The Canadian actor, writer and comedian has reunited with the Emmy winner to portray Terry and Terri, two-headed monster siblings in the upcoming film Monsters University, a prequel to the hit 2001 animated flick Monsters, Inc. “I knew Sean pretty well, and it was really fun to just walk in the studio with him,” Foley said Tuesday. “We immediately started ad-libbing, and we have pretty good chemistry together.” While voice work is typically a solitary process, Foley said the makers of Monsters University felt it important to bring the “sibling squabbling quality” to life. “They brought Sean and I into the sessions together so that we could improvise and so that we could talk over each other and have it be very naturalistic.” The latest instalment of Monsters sees the oneeyed, pint-sized Mike Wazowski (Billy Crystal) and the burly, shaggy, spotted James P. Sullivan (John Goodman) as college freshmen who find themselves on the outside looking in at their school’s Scare Program. The pair end up joining a rag-tag collective of fraternity members — which includes Terri and Terry — in hopes of earning their way back into the fold. “It’s definitely about the underdogs achieving something, but also to me, about that balance of the individual in the group and being responsible for other people and the team,” Foley said. “That difference between individual effort and teamwork . . . I think is a great message for kids to be responsible for other people, and that you can get further along by taking care of each other.” The Toronto-born Foley of Kids in the Hall fame has a lengthy list of live-action film and TV credits, including the upcoming CTV comedy series Spun Out. But the comedy star has established a significant on-screen presence with voice roles, including a trio of previous Disney-Pixar flicks: A Bug’s Life, Cars and Toy Story 2.

Madonna premieres MDNA concert film in NYC; talks secret project Madonna’s new conNEW YORK — Madonna said there were days when she was exhausted during her recent MDNA world tour, but she decided to press on. You won’t see those behind-the-scenes battles in her new concert film, The MDNA Tour, which premieres Saturday on the online and cable network Epix. But you will see the 54-yearold pop icon performing — mainly highlights from her Miami shows — for two hours on her tour, which started in May of last year and wrapped in December. “There’s no such thing as not in the mood because the show must go on, right?” the singer said at the film’s premiere Tuesday night at New York’s Paris Theater. “I’m a human being like everybody else, so I would have my nights, my bad nights and I would cry and I would say, ’I don’t want to do this.”’ Madonna told a feverish crowd of fans, her dancers, her tour team, socialites and members of press that she wanted her shows to be a relief for those paying to see her. Madonna’s tour, which included design help from her 16-year-old daughter, Lourdes, also featured her 12-year-old

The art of social change FAITH RINGGOLD CHALLENGES AMERICA TO SEE ITS TRUE COLOURS BY ADVOCATE NEWS SERVICES WASHINGTON — Fifty years after the racial upheaval of the 1960s, Americans often like to say they don’t see colour. They pretend not to see it even when it’s right in front of their faces, says artist Faith Ringgold. It’s a worldview she finds delusional, counterintuitive and impossible for artists like herself who traffic in colour and shades of meaning. “You don’t have to not see,” Ringgold says. “You can see and accept and love and allow. It’s okay. It’s okay. The more you look, the more real everybody becomes, and it’s okay.” That’s one of the many messages in the comprehensive survey American People, Black Light: Faith Ringgold’s Paintings of the 1960s, opening Friday at the National Museum of Women in the Arts. They are paintings of a nation convulsing from civil rights and feminist ideals. They are the faces and bodies of people going through massive social change during a time when the abstract traditions of Pollock and De Kooning held sway, and minimalism and pop art — cubes and commercial imagery — were ascending. It is a message that has come back around, though it’s taken decades. The 49-piece exhibition unfolds chronologically, taking up eight galleries and provoking visitors with paintings of enormous size, arresting intimacy and unsettling intensity. They are marked by large, emoting eyes, her signature U-shaped line descending from the eyebrows around the nose, and “highkeyed” blues, reds, and greens, colors that dominate not with brightness, but with depth. It is a style she calls super-realism — one that demands that viewers engage. The pictures are of people alone with their thoughts, alone with their mirrors, or using other people as mirrors. They are blacks and whites together in crowds, silent, or smug, or alienated. Or, as in the case of 1967’s Die, dripping blood, and savaging one another. There are words painted inside American flags, black and brown faces alight with the beauty of self-love, along with posters of revolution: Free Women, Free All Political Prisoners, All Power to the People. “Every time people struggle, they survive, they do better and then they forget and they end up back where they started from,” Ringgold says. People learn to speak up, to make themselves seen and heard and counted, then suddenly they stop doing those things. “It has happened over and over again. It is so sad that it takes so long for people to understand what needs to happen in order to be free.” Ringgold, 82, a Harlem native, was an icon of the Black Arts Movement, a conscious, communityconnected, politically engaged artistic aesthetic that shared philosophical corollaries with the black power movement of the 1960s and 1970s. But she is most celebrated for her revival of African American story quilts beginning in the late 1970s. After the early 1970s, Ringgold says people didn’t want to show her early paintings, “and I mean they didn’t show it,” she says. “It was a political time, but not with art,” which was “beautifully abstract, but abstract. And here I come with these images of black and white people and a lot of people got angry at me.” When an artist becomes famous for a certain thing, it can take time “for historians and galleries to reconnect with what an artist did early in their career,” says museum director Susan Fisher Sterling. But everything that informs Ringgold’s story quilts was in process in her earlier work, Sterling says. “It was the proving ground, if you will. The first stages toward that desire to create a different view of African American life and her sense of herself as a woman, and an artist and as an African American, not necessarily in that order.” Sterling says Women in the Arts is the last venue in a tour of Ringgold’s 1960s work that began in 2010 at the Neuberger Museum of Art in Westchester County, N.Y., and continued on to Spelman College in Atlanta and the Miami Art Museum. The paintings begin in 1963 — the year of the March on Washington and the assassinations of John F. Kennedy and Medgar Evers — with the intimacies of “American People.” Neighbors features four unsmiling white figures, a family, seemingly of one accord in their aloofness. Portrait of an American Youth is an image of pervasive sadness and stifled promise. A young man in suit and tie, seated and going nowhere against a white figure in the background and red, white and blues all around. In the hierarchy of The In Crowd a suited black man is at the bottom of a pile with a white hand across his mouth, his own hands nowhere to protest. Though the white man, Mr. Charlie is a rare smiling portrait, it conveys only menace and

Artist Faith Ringgold’s American People Series #18: The Flag Is Bleeding, 1967 challenged Americans to look beyond the red, white and blue. duplicity; an archetype of such singular historical resonance, it disturbs, even decades later. “You have these tremendous social changes going on and Ringgold’s art addressed those social changes, says Sterling. “There’s no gloss-over on that.” Early in her career, Ringgold’s canvases fit on easels, but by 1967, she had secured a large gallery space, sent her daughters (one of whom is noted feminist writer Michele Wallace) to Europe for the summer and began to stretch out. Her paintings grew larger and more imposing (72 by 144 inches for Die), their size a metaphor for the bigness of the issues she grappled with. Also in 1967, Ringgold began exploring African American skin tone, diversity, beauty and love with tonal studies of abstracted faces in Black Light. It is work that presaged the “black is beautiful” idea, Sterling says. It was a notion that was bubbling up, and Ringgold caught it and made it her own. The series represents an evolution in her art and activism; a reflective move to the interior of a people. She rendered events of the late ‘60s in text-based works, often painting words — “Music,” “Dance,” “America,” “Love” — on her canvas. Her later political posters used complementary colours, red and green to vibrating, three-dimensional effect, and Ringgold concentrated her artist’s voice on specific issues. The United States of Attica is a densely worded “Map of American Violence” covered in murders, wars, uprisings and numbers of dead. In 1970’s The People’s Flag Show, she painted these words in allcapital letters, unpunctuated and running together: “the American people are the only people who can interpret the American flag. A flag which does not belong to the people to do with as they see fit should be burned and forgotten.” In the late 1960s and early 1970s, Ringgold’s art and activism became more organized and took on more of an overtly feminist bent. She organized protests by black artists demanding their work be shown at New York’s Whitney Museum of American Art and Museum of Modern Art.

“I started out trying to open up museums to African Americans, because we weren’t getting any opportunity to show our work,” Ringgold says. But she noticed the curators would invite only the men in to talk. She worried that all her agitating seemed to make it easier for black men alone to walk through doors that were once closed. That’s when she became a feminist, Ringgold says. “I don’t need to be struggling for something that’s against me. I’m for others, but I’m also for me.” A protest at the Whitney museum led to exhibitions of works by artists Betye Saar and Barbara Chase-Riboud in the museum’s 1970 Sculpture Biennial, the first black women ever included. Ringgold herself has never had an exhibition at the Whitney. Even all these years later, Ringgold says she’s excited to be showing her early work. “I’m excited because it’s in Washington D.C., and it’s the only women’s museum [dedicated to women in the arts] in the country.” From 1969 to 2010, she says she didn’t show her ‘60s work at all, which is why much of it remains in her possession. But “I did not stop working,” she says. She has constantly reinvented herself, writing her autobiography in words, or writing her autobiography in quilts. She’s written 17 children’s books. From 1987 until 2002, she taught at the University of California at San Diego. Her publicly commissioned work People Portraits, 52 mosaics, was installed in the Los Angeles Civic Center subway station in 2010. She’s created a deck of Obama family playing cards. And she is working on a series of acrylic paintings that will be the illustrations for a forthcoming book Harlem Renaissance Party, to be published by Harper Collins. In her autobiography, she wrote: “I have always wanted to tell my story, or, more to the point, my side of the story.” To do that, “you have to stay in the game,” she says. You can’t be turned around, or turned out, or stopped. “People don’t mean any harm,” Ringgold says. “Don’t let them do you harm.” “Just keep working.” 5402-47 St. Red Deer MOVIE LINE 346-1300 PAIN & GAIN

Fans can get a sneak peek at Battle of the Sous Chefs when the first episode is posted on beginning on Thursday.

character is a bit over the top, a silly sort of a Moneypenny to James Bond. Jake discovers that, the Retreat Centre is closed, the chapel has no record of the wedding, and not even her sister knows where to find Natalie. In this techy world, it is almost impossible to leave no footprints, but Jake is at a dead end. I know I’m telling you a lot of the story but there is a mystery here, with roots going back in time. The college is involved but no one is talking. Other very nasty people are looking for Natalie, so there are fights and death. Jake is six foot six and 230 pounds, so even though he is a good guy, he can handle himself in a scrap. This is not a deep, literary mystery, it is a light, easy, fanciful read. Sometimes Jake seems a bit of a lightweight himself and oddly the killing does not seem to depress him too much. But it is a good twisty mystery. Harlan Coben has written 23 books many as part of a series. This is not a series but a stand-alone story. Peggy Freeman is a local freelance books reviewer.

Kwan’s affluent upbringing McFadden wins $65,000 results in Crazy Rich Asians Griffin Poetry Prize at gala BY THE CANADIAN PRESS TORONTO — Zipping to global hot spots on private jets, dropping more money in one shopping spree than most people make in a year, and playing with exotic pets in luxurious homes was commonplace in author Kevin Kwan’s social circles during his childhood in Singapore. “As a kid I went to a party one day and this woman had a chimpanzee, which I just was overjoyed to meet a chimpanzee in a private home,” the New York-based Kwan recalled during a recent stop in Toronto. “I was dragged to some tea with my mom. I didn’t want to go, and I get there and there is a chimpanzee in the backyard. Like, how often do you see that? And I got to bond with it and I got to carry it. It was wearing diapers.” Kwan’s affluent upbringing inspired his breezy debut novel, “Crazy Rich Asians,” a comical page-turning romp that’s a perfect summer beach read and has been lauded in magazines, including Vogue, O and Elle. It’s also earned praise from such bestselling authors as Jackie Collins, Plum Sykes and Michael Korda. The newly published satire follows Manhattan-based professor Nicholas Young, heir to one of the largest fortunes in Asia, as he takes his “ABC” (American-born Chinese) girlfriend Rachel Chu to Singapore to attend a grand wedding and meet his relatives. The Youngs are one of three filthyrich families featured in the “Romeo and Juliet”-meets-“Cinderella”-meets“Dynasty” story, which compares the modest “old money” attitude to the “new money” tribe of pomp and grandstanding in Southeast Asia. It also highlights divisions between mainland Chinese and “overseas Chinese.” Like the Youngs, Kwan said his family also keeps a low profile about its fortunes and has a “sense of obligation that if you have money, you need to be charitable and help other people.” “It’s hard to talk about it because I’ve always grown up coming from a very private family and you just never want to talk about yourself,” he said. “It’s rude, it’s not polite, it’s kind of tacky. So promoting this book has been a whole new challenge, because my default is just to play things down and not talk about it.” The bespectacled 39-year-old did

say he lived “in a nice house” in Singapore — a rarity and privilege in a region where most live in apartments due to scarcity of land. He attended private school there until age 12, when his family moved to Houston to pursue business interests. Kwan attended high school with children of NASA astronauts, got a degree in media studies at the University of Houston, then moved to New York to study photography at the Parsons School of Design. His childhood was “very lucky, privileged,” but was “in no way as extreme” as those of the characters in “Crazy Rich Asians” (Doubleday Canada). “But I have been an intimate observer of some of the privilege that you see in this book,” added Kwan. “Everything in the book is fiction, but it’s loosely inspired by stories from the past and things I saw and stories that are still playing out right now.” Kwan embarked on the novel after being a creative consultant on visual books for Oprah Winfrey, Gore Vidal and Elizabeth Taylor. He also wrote the art book “I Was Cuba,” co-authored “Luck: The Essential Guide,” and did set design consulting on Broadway. He started writing “Crazy Rich Asians” in 2010 in New York after his father got very ill and the two spent many hours reminiscing about their childhoods. “It was a pretty dark time for me and so I wanted to sort of find a way to amuse myself,” said Kwan, who assured his family members they would not appear in the pages. As he crafted the universal tale of complex families, he took inspiration from several authors, including Dominick Dunne, Jane Austen, Edith Wharton and Anthony Trollope. “I wanted to tell kind of an Asian version of ’Downton Abbey,”’ said Kwan. “Asia is going through its own gilded age and there’s a great literary tradition of looking at this world, skewering this world, satirizing it, and I just felt like this is a missing gap. “Because there’s all this money being made over in the Far East and there are lots of economic books about it ... but no one’s just telling a fun, family story with a romance thrown in. “No one’s really telling it from the perspective of these people that lead these lives, and showing the drama and complications that occur when you have that kind of money.”

BY THE CANADIAN PRESS TORONTO — Toronto’s David W. McFadden appeared utterly shocked to win the $65,000 Griffin Poetry Prize on Thursday night, thanking his daughter Jennifer for being “such a wonderful person” and providing inspiration for his collection. McFadden’s “What’s the Score?” (Mansfield Press) was named the winner of the lucrative accolade at a gala attended by literary luminaries including Margaret Atwood, Michael Ondaatje, Susan Swan and Michael Winter. “I can’t talk, I’m sorry, but I can read,” said a tongue-tied McFadden as he referred to a prepared speech in which he also thanked the prize creators, his family and his editor and publisher. “I didn’t expect this. I didn’t know what I was doing up there,” he said with a laugh in an interview after receiving the prize. “All I know is that I feel sorry for all the great poets that haven’t had this experience.” The author of 35 books of poetry, fiction and travel writing, McFadden started publishing poetry in 1958 and has been previously shortlisted for the 2008 Griffin Poetry Prize, as well as for three Governor General’s Awards. In their citation of “What’s the Score?” the judges said: “With their arch yet affable tone, these ninety-nine irreverent and mock-earnest poems lay siege to the feelings of boredom, anxiety, and alienation that afflict a culture obsessed with wealth and prestige, leading us, again and again, down the road of excess to the palace of wisdom.” Meanwhile, “Like a Straw Bird It Follows Me, and Other Poems” (Yale University Press), by Ramallah-based Palestinian poet Ghassan Zaqtan and translated from Arabic by Fady Joudah of Houston, won $65,000 for the international Griffin honour. Zaqtan has written 10 poetry collections while Joudah is an internal medicine doctor as well as a translator and poet himself. Speaking in Arabic translated by Joudah, Zaqtan thanked his fellow nominees, the prize creators, his poet

father and his mother, “who was essentially the librarian of the house.” He and Joudah also thanked late Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish, who published Zaqtan’s work in a magazine that caught the translator’s attention. “That’s how we came together as two brotherly souls, I think, who had never met or spoken,” Joudah said in an interview. “I began on the work simply by asking him permission through email and he sent me the texts and then later on, as time passed, we spoke and then years later we met.” Zaqtan’s visa to enter Canada to attend the Griffin gala was initially denied by the Canadian embassy in Cairo but after Joudah and other writer groups took to social media to garner support for him, the visa was eventually granted. “I think the visa thing is recognizably an unfortunate twist of events,” said Joudah. “But it was solved and I think one’s thoughts turn most importantly to the celebration of beauty and poetry.” The Griffin prize, he added, “really puts, in part, Palestinian poetry in a light that it should have been under and in for quite some time. And it’s about time and I am happy for that.” This is the 13th year for the Griffin, which recognizes one Canadian and one international poet. Judges Suzanne Buffam of Vancouver, Mark Doty of the U.S., and China’s Wang Ping each read 509 books of poetry, from 40 countries, including 15 translations. Toronto businessman Scott Griffin created the honour along with trustees including Atwood and Ondaatje. The prize money includes $10,000 each finalist received for participating in Wednesday evening’s readings. Guests at the Thursday bash feasted on shrimp tacos, truffled wild mushrooms, beef tenderloin and mini chocolate bars. The night was a celebration of poetry, which former Griffin winner A.F. Moritz called “a guardian of the health of language and the creativity of language.” He lamented its marginalization, adding: “If there were more of a balance of poetry and all that it represents, or (it was) more central in our culture, our culture would be doing a lot better.”

When Toronto chef Christian Pritchard visited Yukon Territory last year, he was enraptured by the plethora of delicious and unusual ingredients and proposed the idea of a culinary festival to feature the bounty amid spectacular scenery. Fast forward through months of organizing, and the Yukon Culinary Festival, which kicked off Thursday and runs through Monday, is giving residents and visitors a chance to sample local delicacies under the midnight sun. “This is the first ever culinary festival of this magnitude in the Yukon, but more than that it’s the first ever multi-day territorywide culinary festival in all the territories north of 60 in Canada,� Blake Rogers said in an interview from Whitehorse, where he’s executive director for the Tourism Industry Association of the Yukon. The festival will feature gastronomic delicacies, cooking demonstrations and opportunities for foraging, all with an aim of promoting local food and products. “A lot of people south of 60 don’t know a lot about the culinary scene in the north,� said Rogers, who moved to the area from Nova Scotia and acknowledges he too is still learning. “To be honest, that’s part of the reason why we really wanted to have Christian (Pritchard) come up and do a lot of the facilitation throughout the event is to kind of have it through the

joined forces. Among them were the Yukon Outfitters Association, Yukon Historical and Museums Association, Yukon First Nations Tourism Association and Klondike Institute of Arts and Culture. Another sponsor is Yukon Brewing, which uses local ingredients such as fireweed and honey in its craft beer. Air North, whose inflight kitchen serves local fare, including locally roasted coffee, is hosting a golf tournament that will take advantage of the lengthy days. In the Midnight Sun Food Crawl, participating restaurants have been tasked to create at least two dishes made using a local ingredient and will stay open between 9 a.m. and 1 a.m. so that visitors can dine under the midnight sun. The event overlaps with the June 21-27 Adaka Cultural Festival in Whitehorse, a First Nations event that has been running since 2011. It features a community feast and bannock-making contest along with drumming and dancing. Pritchard, who has organized culinary tours to Italy and the Niagara wine region, said he hopes the event will attract Canadians to travel in their own country and experience its culture and scenery. “This is the first step in a culinary revolution of the great people of the Yukon and I mean everybody — the people that have come up, the southerners and the First Nations — making an effort together.�

eyes of a visiting chef. “What does the Yukon have to offer, to showcase that amazement and wonder, but also include local chefs to share their knowledge with Christian and to really capture all that and to showcase it for the rest of Canada.� As a self-described “city kid,� Pritchard said he’s eagerly anticipating the foraging event, hoping he’ll find lots of great ingredients to cook with. “When you’re in food, as I am, food’s always an ongoing education. ... Food is like music. Music has 12 notes. Look what comes from those 12 notes. In food we have many more notes to play,� he said. “The great thing is in the Yukon these notes are almost undiscovered in the people south of 60, but the sheer beauty of this territory, it’s just mind-blowing.� He confesses to being delighted by such unique ingredients as wild game, spruce tips, berries and birch syrup. Rogers said there’s an Arctic char fish farm in the area as well as jelly made from fireweed, the territory’s flower. Apples are grown in the Dawson area. He’s also been won over by the area’s root vegetables. Growth in cold soil concentrates their sweetness. The culinary festival coincides with the June solstice, when the sun barely sleeps. Organizers hope the ambitious multi-day, territorywide event will become an annual affair. It was originally conceived as being small, but it grew as various partners

Ancient Cambodian city discovered AIRBORNE LASER SPOTS CITY COMPLEX OF ROADS AND CANALS THAT WAS HIDDEN UNDER DENSE FOREST constructed in the 12th century during the mighty Khmer empire. Angkor Wat is a point of deep pride for Cambodians, appearing on the national flag, and was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Archaeologists had long suspected that the city of Mahendraparvata lay hidden beneath a canopy of dense vegetation atop Phnom Kulen mountain in Siem Reap province. But the airborne lasers produced the first detailed map of a vast cityscape, including highways and previously undiscovered temples. “No one had ever mapped the city in any kind of detail before, and so it was a real revelation to see the city revealed in such clarity,” Uni-

BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS SYDNEY, Australia — Airborne laser technology has uncovered a network of roadways and canals, illustrating a bustling ancient city linking Cambodia’s famed Angkor Wat temple complex. The discovery was announced late Monday in a peer-reviewed paper released early by the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The laser scanning revealed a previously undocumented formally planned urban landscape integrating the 1,200-year-old temples. The Angkor temple complex, Cambodia’s top tourist destination and one of Asia’s most famous landmarks, was

versity of Sydney archaeologist Damian Evans, the study’s lead author, said by phone from Cambodia. “It’s really remarkable to see these traces of human activity still inscribed into the forest floor many, many centuries after the city ceased to function and was overgrown.” The laser technology, known as lidar, works by firing laser pulses from an aircraft to the ground and measuring the distance to create a detailed, three-dimensional map of the area. It’s a useful tool for archaeologists because the lasers can penetrate thick vegetation and cover swaths of ground far faster than they could be analyzed on foot. Lidar has been used to

explore other archaeological sites, such as Stonehenge. In April 2012, researchers loaded the equipment onto a helicopter, which spent days crisscrossing the dense forests from 800 metres (2,600 feet) above the ground. A team of Australian and French archaeologists then confirmed the findings with an on-foot expedition through the jungle. Archaeologists had already spent years doing ground research to map a 9-square-kilometre (3.5-square-mile) section of the city’s downtown area. But the lidar revealed the downtown was much more expansive — at least 35 square kilometres (14 square miles) — and more heavily populated than once believed.

“The real revelation is to find that the downtown area is densely inhabited, formally-planned and bigger than previously thought,” Evans said. “To see the extent of things we missed before has completely changed our understanding of how these cities were structured.” Researchers don’t yet know why the civilization at Mahendraparvata collapsed. But Evans said one theory is that possible problems with the city’s water management system may have driven people out. The next step for researchers involves excavating the site, which Evans hopes will reveal clues about how many people once lived there.

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — The U.S. space agency has eight new astronauts — its first new batch in four years. Among the lucky candidates: the first female fighter pilot to become an astronaut in nearly two decades. A female helicopter pilot also is in the group. In fact, four of the eight are women, the highest percentage of female astronaut candidates ever selected by NASA. Monday’s announcement came on the eve of the 30th anniversary of the launch of the first American woman in space, Sally Ride. She died last summer. The eight were chosen from more than 6,000 applications received early last year, the second largest number ever received. They will report for duty in August at Johnson Space Center in Houston and join 49 astronauts currently at NASA. The number has dwindled ever since the space shuttles stopped flying in 2011. Many astronauts quit rather than get in a lengthy line for relatively few slots for longterm missions aboard the International Space Station. NASA Administrator Charles Bolden said these new candidates will help lead the first human mission to an asteroid in the 2020s, and then Mars, sometime in the following decade. They also may be among the first to fly to the space station aboard commercial spacecraft launched from the U.S., he noted. Russia ferries the astronauts now. “These new space explorers asked to join NASA because they know we’re doing big, bold things here — developing missions to go farther into space than ever before,” Bolden said in a statement.

award with Best and Macleod shared his with Collip. The discovery of insulin in the 1920s had an enormous impact on people with diabetes worldwide. Prior to its development, the disease was mostly treated with a strict diet, which inevitably led to starvation if not death from the disease. When five-year-old Teddy Ryder arrived in Toronto for treatment, he weighed just 27 pounds. The following year, he wrote to Banting from his home in Connecticut, informing him that, “I am a fat boy now

Patient letters and charts, photographs, lab notebooks and other documents record the process of discovery and insulin’s development at the university. Banting and Macleod were awarded the 1923 Nobel Prize for medicine. To give credit, Banting shared his cash

She was raised on a farm near Aberdeen, SK. and being independent, she moved to Calgary on Canada Day, 1967. Doreen lived and worked in Calgary and when her first husband died in 1980, she took her lay off pay from Gulf Canada and bought a home in Airdrie for her daughter, Carrie and her.

Doreen worked at The Bay in Calgary for 3 years and then 9 years at Bower Mall Bay where she was known as “The Shoe Lady”. Once diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Dementia, she resided at Symphony Aspen Ridge Long Term Care. Doreen is survived by her husband, Dean; mother, Sylvia Bunka of Calgary; sister, Vera (Blair) of Calgary and brothers, Richard of Saskatoon and John of Vancouver. She was blessed with a daughter, Carrie (Shannon) Burns of Airdrie and grandchildren, Nathalie, Grace and Aaron as well as step-children, Jennifer (Trevor) Scheible and Darcy Cowan of Calgary. Doreen will also be missed by numerous relatives and friends. She was predeceased by her father, Steve; infant sister, Linda and her first husband, Richard Cundiff.

Tyrone was born in Red Deer and moved to Quesnel, BC, went to school there and then finally came back home to Red Deer to start a career in the oilfield. He made his way up the ladder to be a Derrick hand. Things got slow in 1986 and he made a career change to be a bouncer and a great DJ at the Windsor hotel. After 7 long years of doing that, he came back to the oilfield and this time stayed with it. He made his way to rig manager for Bear Drilling and then for Trinidad drilling from Canada to the USA and Mexico. He loved working long shifts and also enjoyed his time off.

Demonstrators burn flags of the Workers’ Party where crowds gathered to celebrate the reversal of a fare hike on public transportation, in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Thursday. After a week of mass protests, Brazilians won the world’s attention and a pull-back on the subway and bus fare hikes that had first ignited their rage. Protesters gathered for a new wave of massive demonstrations in Brazil on Thursday evening, extending the protests that have sent hundreds of thousands of people into the streets since last week to denounce poor public services and government corruption. Not surprisingly in the land of samba, Thursday’s protests quickly took on the feel of a party in the afternoon, without much of the vandalism and confrontations with police that had marked earlier demonstrations. People of all ages, many of them draped in flags, gathered in front of the majestic domed Candelaria church in downtown Rio, while groups elsewhere pounded out Carnival rhythms or chanted slogans targeting Rio state’s governor. Vendors circulated among the masses, hawking popcorn, soft drinks, churros and even hot dogs grilled on the spot over smouldering charcoal. Men and women collecting recyclables darted about snatching up crumpled tin cans from under protesters’ feet. At one point, a police helicopter flew over the crowd, which booed and pointed green lasers at the craft. When shirtless youths, many of them with T-shirts wrapped round their faces, pushed and jostled their way through the crowd, people spontaneously broke out into a chant of “Without violence!” Several city leaders have already accepted protester demands to revoke an increase in bus and subway fares in the hopes that anti-government anger cools. In Sao Paulo, where demonstrators blocked Paulista Avenue, organizers said they would turn their demonstration into a party celebrating the lower transit fares. But many believe the protests are

no longer just about bus fares and have become larger cries for systemic changes. That message went to the heart of Brazilian power, the capital of Brasilia, which saw its largest demonstration yet with 20.000 people gathered in the Esplanada dos Ministerios, the government centre. The crowd marched down the enormous plaza with signs highlighting different causes and rainbow flags defending gay rights. Many also denounced a pending bill in Brazil’s Congress that would allow psychologists to treat homosexuality as an illness. Police formed a barrier in front of Congress to keep protesters from climbing on the roof of the building as they did Monday, when 10,000 protesters filled the capital. “The house is ours, the house is ours!” some 50 demonstrators chanted as they ran into the pool facing Congress. A stronger line of defence was formed in front of the presidential palace, where President Dilma Rousseff was meeting with advisors, according to her press office. Spokespeople not say whether the president was discussing the protests going on throughout the country. “This is the start of a structural change in Brazil,” said Aline Campos, a 29 year old publicist in Brasilia. “People now want to make sure their money is well spent, that it’s not wasted through corruption.”

With U.S. set to arm rebels, it enters a tangle of rivalries around factions syria by THE ASSOCIATED PRESS BEIRUT — Syria’s rebels have received shipments of more powerful weapons from Gulf allies in recent weeks, particularly anti-tank and anti-aircraft missiles, that have already helped stall aggressive new advances by regime forces. But those same shipments have sparked feuding and squabbling among rebel factions, illustrating the complications the United States will face as it starts directly arming the rebels, a major policy shift by the Obama administration. Every shipment enters a tangle of complex rebel politics, with dozens of brigades and battalions operating on the ground, riven by jealousies, rivalries and competition, with radical Islamist fighters dominant. Moderate brigades complain Islamists are being favoured. Islamists say they are being unfairly blamed. On the ground, rebels are making efforts to organize themselves to better funnel weapons and more effectively fight, but they often stumble over the same splits. The new shipment earlier this month— said to be only the second sent by Gulf countries since November, and the first ever known to include some anti-aircraft missiles — caused a stir among rebels who say it went to one of the extreme Islamist groups, Ahrar al-Sham. The group is the strongest member of the Syrian Islamist Front, made up of 11 Islamist factions, which appears to be increasingly posing as a parallel to the Western-backed Free Syrian Army, a loose umbrella group of rebel fighters. “The distribution was not fair,” said Zeineddine al-Shami, a spokesman for the First Brigade of the Free Syrian Army in the Damascus area. “It was random, based on the people they know.” Rebels in the Damascus area have struggled in recent weeks against a stepped-up campaign by regime forces, backed by Lebanese Hezbollah and Iraqi Shiites fighters, to push them out of suburbs that have been rebel strongholds. Ahrar al-Sham is one of the most well-established rebel groups to emerge in the Syrian conflict, with fighting units in nearly all the provinces. It has co-ordinated to some degree with the new unified Supreme Military Council of the Free Syrian Army, created in December to incorporate the disparate rebel brigades, but it still maintains an independent command. Although it calls itself a moderate Islamist group, activists and residents in areas the group controls describe them as hardcore. Alongside Jabhat al-Nusra, an al-Qaida-linked force that includes many foreign jihadis, Ahrar al-Sham controls Raqaa, the only city the rebels managed to fully seize in Syria. One activist reported seeing Ahrar al-Sham fighters threatening to cut off an old man’s hands for smoking, a vice for observant Muslims. Ahrar al-Sham denied it received the weapons. Its leader Abdullah al-Hamawi wrote on his Twitter ac-

count Wednesday that reports his group has received new anti-tank missiles “can only be taken in the context of attempts to incite factions against each other.” Whether the denial is true or not, it reflects the deep sensitivity among the factions over who gets weapons. “They deny it for a simple reason, because of the high competition, even conflict, between groups,” Mustafa Alani, a Dubai-based expert on Gulf countries’ policies including aid to Syrian rebels, said. “And they don’t want to appear as having been adopted by outside parties.” President Barack Obama has resisted directly arming rebels, fearing getting mired in the conflict, now in its third year with some 93,000 estimated dead. The U.S. is also concerned that stronger weapons could fall into the hands of extremists. Until now, it has only consulted as regional allies including Saudi Arabia and Qatar began sending ammunition and lighter arms last year through Jordan and Turkey, while the Americans provided non-lethal equipment. The countries have never publicly confirmed their involvement in arms shipments. But earlier this month, Obama announced the United States would begin providing arms and ammunition, after President Bashar Assad’s military dealt the rebels serious setbacks. U.S. officials say they want weapons to go to more moderate factions. The most likely funnel would be the Supreme Military Council, headed by Gen. Salim Idris, a defector from Assad’s military. The recent shipment was provided by Gulf nations, not directly by the U.S, according to activists. Alani said it included Russian anti-tank missiles, which rebels have previously obtained from raids on Syrian military arsenals, and some Chinese anti-aircraft missiles in small quantities. The United States and its allies have been highly reluctant to provide anti-aircraft missiles to the rebels, but the rebels have been desperate for them to counter regime aircraft that relentless pound their positions. Alani would not say how many anti-aircraft or anti-tanks missiles were in the shipment, but said a figure of 250 missiles that has circulated was “exaggerated.” He said there was already evidence of rebels using the new anti-tanks missiles in the city of Aleppo to counter two weeks of intensified regime assaults on their neighbourhoods, and in the southern province of Daraa. “This could change the features of the battle greatly in favour of the rebels.” The shipment also illustrates the problem of defining moderate or Islamist factions. Alani said Ahrar al-Sham is seen by some as a relatively moderate Islamist force. FSA leaders argue that funneling weapons through Idris’ command structure will strengthen moderates and sideline Islamic radicals, who have been among the most powerful fighters in the field.
