Province funding highway, sewer projects BY LANA MICHELIN ADVOCATE STAFF
BY CRYSTAL RHYNO ADVOCATE STAFF Eight new officers will join Red Deer’s police force this fall. Red Deer city council opened its SMOKING BYLAW purse strings to re- EXTENDED A3 lease $355,350 in funding to hire the new officers and four municipal staffers. At its Jan. 9, operating budget meeting, council said they would release the funding subject to the policing standards review. Council adopted the governance, policing plan and crime prevention and community safety model on Monday. Coun. Tara Veer said council has heard the debate in the community about whether the RCMP or a municipal force would better serve the community. She said the root of this debate is not having a police service levels or standards in place. “It marks a shift from a reactive policing force to a proactive policing service both on the crime prevention and enforcement front,” said Veer. “This is certainly a road map for the future. Now that we have a plan we can work it. Council and administration will hold the police accountable to that and ultimately the public will hold council accountable.”

Hwy 2 resurfacing and the completion of a regional wastewater project was part of a multimillion-dollar provincial funding announcement made by Alberta’s Transportation minister on Monday. “People depend on roadways to get to school and work safely,” as well as to get their products to market, said Ric McIver, who recognizes Central Alberta’s growing population and need for reliable transportation routes. McIver said he’s committing more than $23 million towards travel safety improvements along Hwy 2 between Red Deer and Carstairs, where an estimated 30,000 vehicles travel daily. Much of this money is slated for nighttime repaving work on two sections of the highway this summer. Resurfacing will start one km north of Innisfail and continue to Red Deer, on both north and southbound lanes. Work will also be begin one km north of Carstairs and proceed to Hwy 27, again, on north and southbound lanes. As well, the province discovered two roadside rest stops near Red Deer on Hwy 2 were the scenes of a higher than usual number of vehicle accidents. The decision to remove these two highway rest stops — one southbound, opposite the Alberta Sports Hall of Fame, and the one northbound between Hwy 42 and McKenzie Road — was made reluctantly, said McIver, because these were obviously well used by motorists.

The finger-pointing has begun in Quebec while investigators search for causes of a devastating train derailment that has triggered a still-rising death toll. Statements from various players in the events that led to the disaster pointed Monday to a possible dispute about what happened and who’s to blame. The main antagonists in that disputed chain of events are a rail company and the municipal fire department in a town next door to now-decimated LacMegantic. The fire chief in Nantes said he can’t believe a train was left running
EXPLOSION HIGHLIGHTS RISK OF OIL TRANSPORT A8 and unattended in the hours before the disaster, when it had already just been in flames. Patrick Lambert said his team had been trained by the Montreal, Maine & Atlantic railway to handle fires on its line — and that it had intervened to fight four fires on the company’s trains in the last eight years. He said a resident called late Friday to report a fire in the locomotive, with flames leaping out from the chimney. A dozen firefighters intervened to put out the blaze in Nantes, which is about 10 kilometres up a slope from Lac-Megantic.

STORIES FROM A1
POLICE: New hires expected to start work on Oct. 1 The plans outline the service levels and standards for the police to meet in the community. RCMP Supt. Warren Dosko said having the benchmarks in place sets a foundation for future policing talks around allocation of resources and why the resources are needed. Dosko called this a critical step forward for policing in Red Deer. “It’s important to connect those dots so everybody understands what those resources will be used for,” said Dosko. The police prioritize calls from the public on three levels with Priority 1 being the most urgent. This may include a major incident like loss of life or risk of loss of life. Priority 3 calls are considered routine calls that do not require immediate police assistance. The new standard will require police officers to respond to Priority 1 and Priority 2 calls within six minutes, 100 per cent of the time. Dosko said right now the police are already meeting this target. About 60 per cent of all police calls are considered Priority 3. “One of our big priorities is how we manage the Priority 3 calls,” said Dosko. “One of the initiatives we are working on is becoming the Priority 3 call taking services right in the detachment so we get control at the onset of the call.” Currently the Southern Alberta Operations Centre answers the calls first and transfer them to the Red Deer detachment. “We are looking at becoming that call taker to do a better job of taking control of those calls initially so we can provide a better service to mitigate the impact on the front line,” said Dosko. Four of the new hires will be front-line constables and the other four will be supervisors. The new hires are expected to begin work on Oct. 1. Coun. Paul Harris said he was pleased that they were able to meet the deadline. He said it was very important to have these guiding documents so they knew what the police would be doing with the resources. “This puts it in place,” said Harris. “I feel quite comfortable and confident that we have a document guide us with the release of funds.” Policing standards highlights: ● Emergency Police Services accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week ● Priority 1 and 2 calls responded to within six minutes ● Priority 3 calls will be responded to based on a differential call model that will be determined in consultation with council ● At least one follow-up contact with any complainant, victim or witness in need firstname.lastname@example.org
FUNDING: Invested a total of $370 million in region The trouble is, there wasn’t enough room to extend the acceleration and deceleration lanes. And in some cases, parked vehicles were extending dangerously into highway traffic. McIver said provincial studies will be done to determine whether safer rest stops can be constructed elsewhere along this stretch of Hwy 2. Meanwhile, there are nearby opportunities for motorists to pull off, either into Gasoline Alley or Red Deer. As Hwy 2 paving gets underway, the interchange at Hwy 2 and Hwy 27 will also be upgraded. Improvements will be made to the exit ramp from Hwy 2 and new ramps will be added to Hwy 27. The goal is to improve traffic flow and safety for those entering and exiting of Hwy 2, said McIver. The minister noted his government has invested a total of $370 million across the region in recent years in transportation improvements, initiatives and waste water projects. Among them is the $121 million the province is spending on the South Red Deer Regional Wastewater project. This 100-plus-km project will pipe waste water from Olds, Bowden, Innisfail, Penhold, and the counties of Mountain View and Red Deer to the City of Red Deer for treatment. The main purpose is to clean regional wastewater to a higher standard than can be achieved by smaller municipalities. “It’s important to keep the river pristine,” said Dennis Cooper, chair of the South Red Deer Regional Wastewater Commission, who noted 200,000

Workers discuss some of the work being done at the Central Spray and Play spray park under construction just north of the Golden Circle on Monday afternoon. The spray park is scheduled to have its grand opening on August 6. people get their drinking water from the Red Deer River and will benefit from an improved quality of water being pumped back in. Cooper said the province’s previous commitment of about $107 million for the project, which was started in 2006, was bumped up to allow for inflation. He’s very glad to receive the money, which will pay for 90 per cent of the project (the remaining 10 per cent will come from participating municipalities). Although the regional wastewater pipeline was supposed to be completed by 2010, Cooper said the complexities of the effort were greater than expected. The new anticipated completion dates are January of either 2015 or 2016. The commission will discuss which is more feasible. As part of the regional wastewater project, the provincial government previously gave the City of Red Deer $57 million for upgrades to the local water treatment plant. email@example.com
DISASTER: Rail World, Inc. defends safety record That same train eventually rolled down into LacMegantic, derailed, and exploded into balls of fire, killing at least 13 people and leaving nearly 40 more missing. Lambert said that when his crew had intervened, the engine was shut off as per the standard operating procedure dictated by MMA. The blaze was extinguished within about 45 minutes.
And that’s where the fire department’s involvement ended, he said. “The people from MMA told us, ’That’s great — the train is secure, there’s no more fire, there’s nothing anymore, there’s no more danger,”’ Lambert told reporters. “We were given our leave, and we left.” The case is now being probed by the federal Transportation Safety Board, as well as the provincial police. The rail company tells the story differently. Edward Burkhardt, the president and CEO of the railway’s parent company Rail World, Inc., suggested Monday that the fire crew didn’t do enough — and even suggested that the decision to shut off the locomotive to put out the fire might have disabled the brakes. “As the air pressure deflates, they (the brakes) will become ineffective and an hour or so after the locomotive was shut down, the train rolled away,” Burkhardt told the CBC on Monday. While the fire service in Nantes has said it left the train in the care of a track-maintenance employee, Burkhardt said it’s possible that person might not have known how to secure the brakes. “When they get a call about a locomotive having a fire, why did they not rouse the engineer (from bed) and take them out there with them?” he asked. Burkhardt appeared to downplay his company’s role in the disaster: “Is any of this huge negligence? No, you can’t point to that.” He did not return repeated calls and emails Monday. Burkhardt had said in a weekend interview with The Canadian Press that the brakes had been properly applied by the company, and he defended its safety record.

Scouts, energy companies create career plan BY MURRAY CRAWFORD ADVOCATE STAFF
Part of being prepared, the Scouts motto, is getting young people ready for their careers and lives. Scouts Canada, in partnership with Imperial Oil Foundation and ExxonMobil Canada, is developing a Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) pilot program with that aim. Calgarian Andrew Price, Scouts Canada Chief Commissioner and board chair, said about 25 to 30 troops will be involved in the pilot program that will start in the winter of 2014, with the program being available to all scouts by fall 2014. “Scouts has always been about the development of well-rounded youth,” said Price, adding they’ve had elements of STEM buried in their programming. “We’ve realized it is important to help the leaders to be a little more
focused and give them some nuggets of activity ideas and ways they can get kids interested in all the aspects of what we’re trying to do.” Price made the announcement during the Scouts Canadian Jamboree 2013, taking place at Camp Woods near Sylvan Lake. Imperial Oil and ExxonMobil will donate $1 million for the program over the next five years. “One of our core development pillars is the core intellectual pillar,” said Price. “It’s also a really good fit because it is leveraged across what we do.” He pointed to some of the outdoor activities such as building rope bridges or even catapults as some of the possibilities with this program. Demonstrations were set up after the announcement of the program. Some Scouts had the opportunity
Sylvan Lake council warned debt will rise significantly BY PAUL COWLEY ADVOCATE STAFF Being one of Alberta’s fastest growing communities comes at a price. Sylvan town council reviewed its 10-year $128-million capital plan on Monday and councillors were told to expect town debt to rise significantly to pay for future projects. A table showing debt loads up to 2018 provided by director of finance Darren Moore showed that debt would peak at about $24.9 million in 2018 — 67 per cent of the town’s allowable debt limit. That’s up from this year’s projected debt of $11.3 million. Those numbers assume that all of the proposed projects are approved by council and go ahead. Mayor Susan Samson said following the meeting that the level of projected debt is a “real concern. “It’s always nice to say you’re going to hold the line on taxation increases and things like that. But the reality is we experienced some tremendous growth in the late ’90s and now we’re trying to play catch up.” A census is underway and the final tally is expected to be in the 13,000 range for the town, which sat at about 7,500 in 2001. “That signifies a community that’s very popular, and people want to live here and move here and work here. And to do that you have to have those amenities.
“When you look at what the 10-year capital plan is there is nothing frivolous there.” Road improvements, a new multiplex facility, a community hub, trails and library expansions are among the planned projects. “Those are institutional structures that residents expect and they expect a certain level when we are the size that we are.” Samson said paying for future growth will likely mean higher tax increases than the two- to three-per cent increases seen in recent years. “To suggest anything else would be a disservice to our residents.” The biggest ticket item on the horizon is the multiplex, which council has committed to keeping at $16.5 million. Financial support from neighbouring communities, the province and significant local fundraising will be required, she said. “There’s only so much money we’re going to allocate from taxes and reserves for this.” Adding to the burden is the continual downloading from the province of new responsibilities, and their connected costs to municipalities, while cutting back on grants and transfers. ● Council approved the demolition of the former Caribbean Flava restaurant on Lakeshore Drive. The restaurant at 4613 Lakeshore Drive has been closed for some time. Council had no word on what is planned for the site. firstname.lastname@example.org
Council declares outdoor events including markets smoke-free them at their particular events. A lot of the large event organizers weren’t aware of a large smoking problem.” The anti-smoking signs are expected to be in place within the next month at the places designated smoke-free zones earlier this year. Scott said this bylaw also allows people to let smokers who may be puffing in an area designated as smoke free to butt out or move to another location. email@example.com
The hammers started swinging as the seventh annual Build a Kid to Cure campaign got underway in Timberlands on Monday. Laebon Homes has once again stepped in to lend its house-building expertise to the fundraising effort that will see a complete home built at a lightning pace. Laebon and a dedicated group of volunteers built a house in a mere 92 hours last year. Dave Wild, one of the campaign organizers, said they plan to go a little slower this year. “We think we’ve done the extreme build to the extent you can do it,” he said. This year’s home is already under construction at 410 Teasdale Dr. Wild said along with the Golf a Kid to Cure tournament on Aug. 23 at Alberta Springs Golf Course, they are hoping to raise about $150,000 to $200,000 for the Kids Cancer Care Founda-

Red Deer’s public market is now a smokefree zone. City council unanimously approved the extension of its Smoke Free Bylaw to ban smoking at outdoor public events including markets, festivals and concerts that require a City of Red Deer Special Events or Use of Streets permit on Monday. This includes events like the Central Alberta Children’s Festival and Canada Day celebrations. “This will make a big difference,” said Coun. Lynne Mulder. “I think it is in the best interest of our community. Not only our children but everybody.” Earlier this year council revised its bylaw to ban smoking within 10 metres of playgrounds, sports fields, spray parks, toboggan hills and skate parks. While the revised bylaw does not include park spaces, Mulder said this could be the next step. “This isn’t the end of this but we felt very strongly of getting the special events part done particularly in light of the market in the summer,” said Mulder. “At least we will have it in effect for a good part of the market.” Greg Scott, director of community services, said they heard a mixed response from event organizers in the community. Scott said these events are activity based so
there’s not a lot of people who smoke at these events and there would be no impact. Scott said there were others who were concerned with the enforcement piece. He said the bylaw would be enforced basically the way it is now through a bylaw officer or RCMP officer. “It’s not up to you to be the enforcer of the bylaw,” said Scott. “It’s up to somebody who has trained to do that. “We also heard from community associations that it is not an issue for
“There is a huge buzz and having this many kids out having a great time is awesome,” said Price. At the jamboree, the Scouts have the chance to be involved in all sorts of activities including canoeing, sailing, a low-ropes course, zip-lining, archery, stilt-walking, rock climbing, raft building, snorkeling, hiking and many more activities. Price said the role of scouting is still very relevant and important in the development of young people. “We need good citizens and the cool thing about Scouts is that we’re global, we’re the largest youth movement in the world, we’re in all but about four countries and that gives a great platform for the young people that are in this scouting movement to be good global citizens,” said Price. “It is a really powerful way that young people can be involved at a young age in things that are important to them and are important to society.” firstname.lastname@example.org

The making of a mayor So you want to be the mayor of Red Deer? Lucky for you, since the opportunity will soon present itself. Mayor Morris Flewwelling has just seven more meetings before he saddles up and rides away (maybe literally since he is a bit MARY-ANN of a gentleman BARR cowboy) into retirement. He has served Red Deer very well over the past three terms, since he first won the mayor’s chair in 2004, and for the previous several terms as a councillor. His will be big shoes for anyone else
to fill with the same amount of integrity, grit, intelligence and commitment to Red Deer. There’s good reason why he was recently named one of Alberta’s 50 most influential people by Alberta Venture Magazine, judged on ability to shape opinion and action. But now that we are getting to the close of his excellent run in municipal politics, it’s time to look ahead, to what Red Deer’s next mayor might look like. Canadians have certainly seen some very public examples lately of the best and worst in mayors. Here’s a checklist if you have a mind to run for mayor: Firstly, you don’t have to be a rock star — but it does help. Just ask the citizens of Calgary, who have the good fortune of having Naheed Nenshi for their mayor during a time of great misfortune. If you didn’t know Calgary’s secret before the devastating flooding hit Calgary, you probably do now. Nenshi has been everywhere, en-
couraging citizens to carry on, thanking emergency workers and everyone else for their efforts, and flipping a few pancakes, too, with the arrival of the Calgary Stampede. Citizens and media love him — because he’s an amazing leader. In him, as well as in many good mayors, we will find most or all of these other qualities as well. You put people and community ahead of politics any day anytime. You show no favouritism. You are nonpartisan but any political party would want you as a candidate. You do not partake in scandalous behaviour but you do like to party. You have great civic pride and you instill it in others. You have the ability to win people’s trust. You are smart, and you can answer most any question about your city. You have warmth and a great sense of humour. You inspire others and show great
leadership through tough times. You embrace multiculturalism. You are compassionate and you can cry in public when it’s appropriate. The media loves to quote everything you say and you create a buzz wherever you go. You get social media. You love to socialize and can relate to everyone, from the Queen to a pauper. You never criticize except those who attack, endanger or insult your community. You are a diplomat and expert at dispute resolution. You have boundless energy. You do not need sleep. And finally, you are huggable like a teddy bear. That’s all — if you think you are up to it, nomination day for municipal elections is Sept. 23. Mary-Ann Barr is Advocate assistant city editor. She can be reached by email at email@example.com or by phone at 403-314-4332.

Is this the end of the Arab Spring? If the people in charge of the various opposition parties in Egypt had any strategic vision, they would not have launched the mass protests that caused the army to oust President Mohammed Morsi on July 4. They would have bided their time and waited for the next election. Because there is probably still going to be a next election in Egypt, despite the coup, and now the Muslim Brotherhood might actually win it. There is a good deal of chatter in the media at the moment about the “end of the Arab Spring,” some of it by commentators who can barely conceal their delight. Egypt, GWYNNE with almost one-third of the world’s total Arab population, DYER was the great symbol of the democratic movement’s success, and now Egyptian democracy is in a mess. But the drama still has a long way to run. Morsi is now under arrest, as are many other leading members of the Muslim Brotherhood, and the passionate demonstrations and counter-demonstrations in the streets of Egypt’s cities make it hard to imagine that any compromise is possible. Indeed, Russian President Vladimir Putin warned last weekend that Egypt risks stumbling into a civil war like the one that has devastated Syria. Opposition leader Mohamed ElBaradei, on the other hand, justified the military coup by claiming that it had been the only alternative to civil war — which could, he said, have been as bad as Somalia. Really? One suspects that he doesn’t know much
CENTRAL ALBERTA’S DAILY NEWSPAPER Published at 2950 Bremner Avenue, Red Deer, Alberta, T4R 1M9 by The Red Deer Advocate Ltd. Canadian Publications Agreement #336602 Member of the Audit Bureau of Circulation Fred Gorman Publisher John Stewart Managing editor Richard Smalley Advertising director
about Somalia. Indeed, one suspects that he doesn’t really know much about his own country either (he has spent most of his career abroad). There was no risk of civil war in Egypt before last week’s military intervention, and there is no risk of civil war now either. What we are seeing is a no-holds-barred struggle for power between rival political movements, in a system where the political rules are newly written, hotly disputed and poorly understood. And all the players have made some serious mistakes. The Muslim Brotherhood, on the basis of last year’s 51.7 per cent majority for Morsi in the presidential election, assumed that it had the unquestioning support of half the population. This was probably not true. Many voted for Morsi in recognition of the Muslim Brotherhood’s long resistance to six decades of military dictatorship. Others voted for him in gratitude for the Brotherhood’s unfailing support for the poor, or in disgust at the fact that Morsi’s only opponent in the second round of the election was a leftover from the Mubarak regime. Perhaps as few as half of them actually voted for the Brotherhood’s core project of Islamizing Egyptian law and forcing its own version of Islamic values on Egyptian society — but the Brothers seemed to think they all had. Even if that had been true, trying to impose fundamental changes on a country with the support of only half the population was not wise. Some of the constitutional changes that Morsi imposed, and some of his tactics for pushing them through, may actually have been the result of political compromises within the Brotherhood, where he constantly had to fend off the fanatics who wanted even more extreme measures. Nevertheless, the secular opposition parties inevitably saw him as an extremist, and genuinely feared that he would some-

how manage to force the whole package on Egypt. So the secular parties responded with extra-constitutional tactics of their own: mass demonstrations that were explicitly intended to trigger a military takeover that would sideline Morsi and the Brotherhood. In only four days of demonstrations, they succeeded, in large part because the army, a resolutely secular organization, had its own grave misgivings about where Morsi’s government was taking Egypt. But the army hasn’t actually seized power. It has appointed Adly Mansour, the head of the Constitutional Supreme Court, as interim president, with the task of organizing new parliamentary and presidential elections. It will not be possible to exclude the Muslim Brotherhood from those elections without turning the whole process into a farce — especially since the Brotherhood will probably be going through some changes of its own. The Muslim Brotherhood took little part in the 2011 revolution and the men at the top, including Morsi, were utterly unprepared for power. They are now likely to be replaced by a younger generation of leaders who are more flexible and more attuned to the realities of power. They might even win the next election, despite all Morsi’s mistakes this time round. That’s the real irony here. If the opposition parties had only left Morsi in power, his unilateral actions and his inability to halt Egypt’s drastic economic decline would have guaranteed an opposition victory at the next election. Now it’s all up in the air again. But democratic politics is far from over in Egypt. Foolish things have been done, but the Arab Spring is not dead.

TORONTO THE WET
Harper meets with MPs, setting stage for cabinet shuffle TOEWS BECOMES LATEST TO LEAVE HIS POST AND QUIT AS MP BY THE CANADIAN PRESS

A woman gets back into her flooded car on the Toronto Indy course on Lakeshore Boulevard in Toronto on Monday. Record-smashing rains knocked out power for hundreds of thousands of residents across the Greater Toronto Area, including the majority of Mississauga, and so badly flooded some roads and major highways that drivers abandoned their waterlogged vehicles. Environment Canada said some parts of the GTA had been drenched with more than 100 millimetres of rain, trouncing the previous one-day rainfall record of 29.2 mm in 2008 for Toronto and even beating the 74.4 mm monthly average for July.
Member of Ontario premier’s team faces child porn charges TORONTO — A former Ontario deputy education minister, who was also on Premier Kathleen Wynne’s transition team, was charged with child pornography offences on Monday. Benjamin Levin, 61, of Toronto, is facing five charges, including two counts of distributing child pornography and one count of making child pornography. Levin, currently a professor at the University of Toronto, was arrested Monday after police executed a search warrant at his home following an online child exploitation investigation. He is also charged with counselling to commit an indictable offence and arrangement of a sexual offence against a child under 16. Levin appeared in a Toronto court on Monday afternoon and was remanded in custody until July 10, when he will make a bail application. “He’s anxious to defend these charges and we intend to vigorously do so on his behalf,” said Levin’s lawyer, Gerald Chan. “What we’re going to argue to the court is this is not someone for whom bail should be denied. He’s in no danger of leaving the jurisdiction ... or committing any offence if he’s released.” Chan added that Levin was “holding up fine” and
had the full support of his family. The premier’s office confirmed Levin served on Wynne’s transition advisory team but wouldn’t comment on the charges. Wynne’s office said the transition team met for the last time June 12, when she thanked members, including Levin, for their work helping her take over the reins from outgoing premier Dalton McGuinty. Levin served under McGuinty as deputy minister of education from late 2004 to early 2007. Ontario Education Minister Liz Sandals said Levin was recently involved with her ministry through contract research projects and guest speaking roles in his capacity as a professor — work that has been suspended pending the outcome of the investigation. “The government of Ontario takes allegations of this nature extremely seriously,” Sandals said in a statement. Levin’s resume states he had given numerous presentations and seminars in New Zealand. Levin also served as Manitoba’s deputy minister of advanced education and deputy minister of education, training and youth between 1999 and 2002. According to a resume posted online, Levin has a bachelor of arts degree from the University of Manitoba and a master of education degree from Harvard. He is currently a professor and research chair in education and leadership at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education at the University of Toronto.

Body of man missing for nearly 30 years found in B.C. lake IN STORY WITH A TWIST BY THE CANADIAN PRESS PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. — The BC Coroners Service says a private searchand-recovery company scouring Francois Lake in the province’s Interior has solved a mystery almost 30 years after a man disappeared. The body of John Angus Mowat, who was last seen on July 13, 1984, was discovered at the bottom of the lake on June 30. Thirty-three-year-old Mowat of Burns Lake was fishing when he disap-
peared. His boat was later found with his fishing rod and a freshly caught fish, but Mowat was nowhere to be seen. At the end of June this year, another person went missing on the lake and family members hired a private search company to try to recover their relative’s body. Those search efforts led to the discovery of Mowat’s body under about 175 metres of water, but the location of the other body is now another mystery.

OTTAWA — Most people head into Quebec’s Gatineau Park in the summer to hike, go mountain biking or hit the water, but a handful of late have been popping in to interview for one of the most important jobs in the country. Prospective and current cabinet ministers took leafy Meech Lake Road last week to meet with Stephen Harper at the prime minister’s country home at Harrington Lake, northeast of Ottawa, The Canadian Press has learned. Harper has been holding the meetings to discuss his plan for an upcoming cabinet shuffle, say Conservative sources who spoke on condition of anonymity. The timing of the shuffle, which could come as early as Wednesday, remains murky. And in a testament to the discretion both demanded by and afforded the boss, few details have surfaced about what politicians were told. Such discussions would likely include an analysis of how a minister feels they have done on the job, said Keith Beardsley, a former senior aide to Harper. That is likely compared to the mandate letter — essentially a to-do list — the minister was given when they were appointed. “That will come into part of his weighing have they done their job or not, whether or not they’ve met their mandate letters — and at the same time it’ll be how he judges their performance, whether it’s in question period or otherwise,” Beardsley said. “I think by then he’s probably made up his mind anyways, but it gives everyone a chance to have their one-on-one.” What is known is there are now five vacancies to fill — on Monday, Public Safety Minister Vic Toews was the latest to announce he was leaving his post. Toews is also quitting as an MP. “I am leaving public life in order to focus on my family and to pursue opportunities in the private sector,” Toews said in a statement Monday. “I leave with a store of many wonderful memories, lifelong friendships and a sense of having accomplished many of the things I set out to do when I first began my political journey.” Other departures from cabinet include junior ministers Ted Menzies and Diane Ablonczy, Fisheries Minister Keith Ashfield, and Government Senate leader Marjory LeBreton. Because LeBreton’s replacement will no longer be a member of cabinet, that means all five openings will come from the Commons. Other inferences can be drawn from the recent departures. With Menzies and Ablonczy on their way out, that leaves room for a new face or two from Calgary and outlying areas, such as Michelle Rempel or Blake Richards. Gender is another factor — with LeBreton and Ablonczy leaving, the proportion of women at the table will likely be addressed. Ashfield’s resignation from cabinet leaves a vacancy for a minister from New Brunswick; possibilities include Robert Goguen, Mike Allen or John Williamson. In Manitoba, with Toews gone, Candice Bergen or James Bezan could be names in the hopper. There are always possibilities for surprises, however. Jaws dropped in 2006 when Harper’s first cabinet included former Liberal minister David Emerson as minister of international trade. Some Conservatives will be watching to see if Harper brings in new caucus leadership in the Commons, such as the whip and the House leader, in view of recent backbench tensions.

Brotherhood urges revolt against army CALLS COME AFTER 54 PEOPLE KILLED, ALMOST ALL PROTESTERS DURING UNREST IN EGYPT BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS CAIRO, Egypt — Egypt was rocked Monday by the deadliest day since its Islamist president was toppled by the military, with more than 50 of his supporters killed by security forces as the country’s top Muslim cleric raised the spectre of civil war. The military found itself on the defensive after the bloodshed, but the interim president drove ahead with the army’s political plan. He issued a swift timetable for the process of amending the Islamistbacked constitution and set parliamentary and presidential elections for early 2014. The killings further entrenched the battle lines between supporters and opponents of ousted President Mohammed Morsi, who was removed by the military July 3 after a year in office following mass demonstrations by millions of Egyptians. Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood called for an uprising, accusing troops of gunning down protesters, while the military blamed armed Islamists for provoking its forces. The shootings began during a protest by about 1,000 Islamists outside the Republican Guard headquarters where Morsi, Egypt’s first freely elected leader, was detained last week. Demonstrators and members of Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood said troops descended on them and opened fire unprovoked as they finished dawn prayers. “I was in the last row praying. They were firing from the left and right,” said Nashat Mohammed, who had come from southern Egypt to join the sit-in and was wounded in the knee. “We said, ’Stop, we’re your brothers.’ They shot at us from every direction.” After a battle lasting about three hours, at least 51 protesters were killed and 435 wounded, most from live ammunition and birdshot, emergency services chief Mohammed Sultan told to the state news agency. At a nationally televised news conference, Army Col. Ahmed Mohammed Ali said police and troops came under “heavy gunfire” at around 4 a.m. and attackers on rooftops opened fire with guns and Molotov cocktails. A soldier and two policemen were killed, and 42 in the security forces were wounded, eight critically, he said. While he said troops had a right to defend the facility, Ali did not directly explain how the protester deaths occurred. He expressed condolences but offered no apologies for the deaths. A collection of video of the clashes provided by the military to Egyptian TV showed protesters on rooftops lobbing projectiles at troops below, including firebombs and toilet seats. It also showed some armed protesters firing at close range at the troops, but it did not show what the military did. It was also not clear at what time in the fighting the videos were shot. It included aerial views of the clashes. Several witnesses from outside the protest said the gunfire started when troops appeared to move on the camp. University student Mirna el-Helbawi told The Associated Press that she watched from her 14th floor apartment overlooking the scene, after she heard protesters banging on metal barricades, a common battle cry. El-Helbawi, 21, said she saw troops and police approaching the protesters, who were lined up on the street behind a make-shift wall. The troops fired tear gas, the protesters responded with rocks, she said.

Egyptian army stand guard around the Republican Guard building in Nasr City in Cairo, Egypt, Monday. Egyptian soldiers and police opened fire on supporters of the ousted President Mohammed Morsi early Monday in violence that left dozens of people killed, outside the military building in Cairo where demonstrators had been holding a sit-in. Soon after, she heard the first gunshots and saw the troops initially retreat backward — which she said led her to believe the shots came from the protester side. She saw Morsi supporters firing from rooftops, while the troops were also shooting. The Freedom and Justice party, the Muslim Brotherhood’s political arm, called on Egyptians to rise up against the army, which it accused of turning Egypt into “a new Syria.” “This could be a moment of extremism for both sides” of the equation, Mohammed Mahsoub, a member of the Islamist Wasat Party told Al-Jazeera TV. The sole Islamist faction that backed Morsi’s removal, the ultraconservative Al-Nour Party, suspended its participation in talks on forming a new leadership for the country. The group is now torn by pressure from many in its base, furious over what they saw as a “massacre” against Islamists. Reeling from scenes of bloodied protesters in hospitals and clinics, many with gaping wounds, some of Egypt’s politicians tried to push new plans for some sort of reconciliation in the deeply polarized nation. Sheik Ahmed el-Tayeb, the grand imam of AlAzhar, the most prominent Sunni Muslim institution, demanded that a reconciliation panel with full powers immediately start work and that those detained in recent days be released. Five prominent Brotherhood figures have been jailed since Morsi’s fall, and Morsi himself is held in detention in an unknown location. El-Tayeb’s announcement he was going into seclu-
sion was a symbolic but dramatic stance — a figure seen as a moral compass by many Egyptians expressing his disgust with all sides in the events. Egypt’s Coptic popes have at times gone into seclusion to protest acts against the Christian community, but the sheik of Al-Azhar has never done so. Struggling whether to fully bolt from the new leadership, the ultraconservative Al-Nour Party denounced what it called incitement against fellow Islamists. Speaking to Al-Jazeera TV, the party’s chief Younes Makhyoun raised the possibility of calling a referendum on Morsi as a compromise measure. There were multiple calls for an independent investigation into the bloodshed as a way to establish the truth and move forward. The military-backed interim president, Adly Mansour, ordered a judicial inquiry into the killings. Significantly, the statement from his office echoed the military’s version of events, saying the killings followed an attempt to storm the Republican Guard’s headquarters. The new leadership announced a fast-track timetable that would lead to elections for a new parliament within about seven months. Under the plan, two panels would be appointed to made amendments to the constitution passed under Morsi. Those changes would be put to a referendum within about 4 ½ months. Parliamentary elections would be held within two months, and once the new parliament convenes it would have a week to set a date for a presidential election.
Evacuation began badly in San Francisco plane crash

A fire truck sprays water on Asiana Flight 214 after it crashed at San Francisco International Airport on Saturday, in San Francisco.
ATTENDANT DESCRIBES DRAMATIC MOMENTS IN EVACUATION THAT SAVED 305 LIVES BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS SAN FRANCISCO — The evacuation of Asiana Flight 214 began badly. Even before the mangled jetliner began filling with smoke, two evacuation slides on the doors inflated inside the cabin instead of outside, pinning two flight attendants to the floor. Cabin manager Lee Yoon-hye, apparently the last person to leave the burning plane, said crew members deflated the slides with axes to rescue their colleagues, one of whom seemed
to be choking beneath the weight of a slide. Lee on Sunday described several dramatic moments in the remarkable evacuation that saved 305 of the 307 people on the plane that crashed Saturday while landing in San Francisco. One flight attendant put a scared elementary schoolboy on her back and slid down a slide, said Lee, in the first comments by a crew member since the crash of the Boeing 777. A pilot helped another injured flight attendant off the plane after the passengers escaped.
Lee herself worked to put out fires and usher passengers to safety despite a broken tailbone that kept her standing throughout a news briefing with mostly South Korean reporters at a San Francisco hotel. She said she didn’t know how badly she was hurt until a doctor at a San Francisco hospital later treated her. It was still unclear whether the pilot’s inexperience with the aircraft and airport played a role, and officials were also investigating whether the airport’s or plane’s equipment could have malfunctioned. Aviation and airline officials said although the pilot has flown a Boeing 777 nine times — for a modest 43 hours in total — it was the first time he was landing that wide-bodied jet into San Francisco. Investigators have said he had realized he was flying too slow and too low, and tried to abort the landing and go back up in the air, but he failed. Lee, 40, who has nearly 20 years’ experience with Asiana, said she knew seconds before impact that something was wrong with the plane. “Right before touchdown, I felt like the plane was trying to take off. I was thinking, ‘What’s happening?’ and then I felt a bang,” Lee said. “That bang felt harder than a normal landing. It was a very big shock. Afterward, there was another shock and the plane swayed to
the right and to the left.” Lee said that after the captain ordered an evacuation, she knew what to do. “I wasn’t really thinking, but my body started carrying out the steps needed for an evacuation,” Lee said. “I was only thinking about rescuing the next passenger.” When Lee saw that the plane was burning after the crash, she was calm. “I was only thinking that I should put it out quickly. I didn’t have time to feel that this fire was going to hurt me,” she said. Lee said she was the last person off the plane and that she tried to approach the back of the aircraft before she left to doublecheck that no one was left inside. But when she moved to the back of the plane, a cloud of black, toxic smoke made it impossible. “It looked like the ceiling had fallen down,” she said. San Mateo County Coroner Robert Foucrault said two people killed in the crash — both 16-year-old students from China — were found outside the jetliner. More than a third of the people onboard didn’t require hospitalization, and only a small number were critically injured. The San Francisco fire chief, Joanne Hayes-White, praised Lee, whom she talked to after the evacuation.
Report castigates Pakistani officials for failing to detect bin Laden BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS ISLAMABAD, Pakistan — Al-Qaida founder Osama bin Laden was able to live in Pakistan undetected for nine years because of a breathtaking scale of negligence and incompetence at practically all levels of the Pakistani government, according to an official government report published by a TV channel on Monday. The 336-page report was written by a commission tasked with investigating the circumstances surrounding the covert U.S. raid that killed bin Laden in Pakistan in May 2011. The pan-Arab Al-Jazeera satellite channel published the report on its website after it was leaked to the station by unknown sources. Pakistani officials did not respond to requests for comment on the report’s authenticity. The U.S. Navy SEALs raid that killed bin Laden in the northwest town of Abbottabad outraged Pakistani officials because they were not told about it beforehand. U.S. officials have said they kept Pakistan in the dark because they were worried the al-Qaida founder would be tipped off.
The fact that the compound where bin Laden was hiding was located only about one kilometre (half a mile) from Pakistan’s equivalent of West Point led many in the U.S. to suspect Pakistani officials of aiding the al-Qaida chief, although Washington never found evidence to back that up. The report said it also found no evidence that current or former Pakistani officials helped bin Laden hide, although it couldn’t rule it out completely. It said very little is known about the network of support that bin Laden enjoyed in Pakistan, other than the group of family and backers that lived with him in Abbottabad. The report lambasted all levels of government, including the powerful army and intelligence services, for failing to detect the terror leader as he lived in six different places in Pakistan over nine years. “To summarize, negligence and incompetence to a greater or lesser degree at almost all levels of government are clear,” said the report, which was based on testimony from more than 200 witnesses, official documents and site visits. The criticism of the army and intelligence services was noteworthy in a country where officials often
steer clear of taking these powerful organizations to task. But it’s unclear if the report will cause any real repercussions. The commission recommended the government make the report public for fear it would be ignored or suppressed, but that never happened, even though it was completed months ago. The report was published on the same day that The Associated Press reported that the top U.S. special operations commander ordered military files about the raid on bin Laden’s hideout to be purged from Defence Department computers and sent to the CIA, where they could be more easily shielded from ever being made public. The report said it was shocking that nobody in the Pakistani government discovered bin Laden while he was living in Abbottabad for six years in a compound described as “hardly normal,” because it was somewhat isolated from homes around it, had very high walls and was protected by barbed wire. Bin Laden wore a cowboy hat when he moved around the compound to avoid detection from above. “The extent of incompetence, to put it mildly, was astounding, if not unbelievable,” the report said.

Most crops good, great BY HARLEY RICHARDS ADVOCATE BUSINESS EDITOR It’s early in the crop year, but the term “bumper” remains a possibility. The most recent provincial crop report, prepared by Agriculture Financial Services Corp., said conditions across Alberta are well above five-year averages. It rated 85 per cent of crops as being in good or excellent condition. The assessment for Central Alberta is somewhat lower, with 76 per cent of crops scoring good or excellent. Excessive moisture, especially west

AGRICULTURE of Hwy 2, was cited as the reason for the difference. “Certainly the west part has had a little more than they really want,” confirmed Harry Brook, a crop specialist at Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development’s Ag-Info Centre in Stettler. But, he added, moisture levels are generally good. A farmer east of Stettler even told Brook recently that he’d welcome some rain. In both Central Alberta and the province as a whole, crop
development is ahead of last year’s pace and the five-year average. That’s despite a late winter. “Although we seemed to start a little later this year than we normally do, we’ve actually had warmer-than-average weather,” explained Brook A few hot days accelerated crop growth, he said, and there haven’t been sustained periods of wet and cold. However, the moist and humid conditions are raising concerns about disease, said Brook.

The International Monetary Fund says the 17 European Union countries that use the euro risk being mired in low growth and high unemployment if they don’t get their banks lending again and urgently reform labour markets. In an assessment published Monday, the IMF identified four areas for action: problem banks need to be identified and helped so the whole financial sector has the confidence to lend; a unified set of banking rules need to be drawn up; the European Central Bank should continue its loose monetary policy; and countries must make their economies competitive, including by freeing up their labour markets. The report warned that “centrifugal forces across the euro area ... are pulling down growth everywhere” and that without serious reforms, the region could suffer long-term damage to growth. — The Canadian Press and The Associated Press

Construction approvals for a pair of schools in Red Deer gave the city’s June building permit tally a $20-million boost and helped push the six-month total for 2013 ahead of the figure for the same period in 2012. The city issued an $11.4-million permit for the new kindergarten-to-Grade 12 Francophone school at 4810 34th St. and another valued at $8.7 million related to the kindergarten-to-Grade 5 Catholic school at 60 Clearview Dr. It also authorized $3.7 million worth of work on a new Shell gas bar and Tim Hortons drive-through at 62 Carleton Ave. These permits contributed to the $33.6 million in construction approved last month. For the same period in 2012, the figure was $21.9 million. Thanks to the new schools, permit values related to public projects reached $21 million in June, as compared with $2.7 million a year earlier.

“That, coupled with the fact we have a very tight rotation in Central Alberta — a lot of producers using a wheat-canola rotation — disease levels have been climbing the last few years. “My concern is the more you keep having a tight rotation, the greater your risk of something coming along that will just sideswipe you.” Last year, for instance, aster yellows hit canola yields unexpectedly hard. Brook urges producers to monitor their fields closely for disease and pests.
Schools boost permit tally
Statistics Canada says municipalities issued $7.3 billion worth of building permits in May, up 4.5 per cent from April. The agency says it was the fifth consecutive monthly increase and was generated mostly by the residential sector in Ontario and the non-residential sector in Quebec. Nationally, residential sector permit values increased 4.2 per cent to $4.6 billion in May. The value of residential building permits was up in seven provinces, led mostly by Ontario, Alberta and Nova Scotia, while British Columbia posted the largest decline.

Rifco makes Globe’s top 1000 ranking Photo by ASHLI BARRETT/Advocate staff
Danielle Haslip, a member of the training team, prepares dough for a pizza at Famoso Neapolitan Pizzeria, which is scheduled to open this Wednesday in Red Deer. The Alberta-based restaurant chain markets its pizza as authentic to that produced in Naples, Italy, with ‘00’ Caputo flour and tomatoes from Italy, as well as whole milk mozzarella. The dough is hand-stretched and pizzas baked in bell-shaped ovens at about 900 F. Famoso’s other offerings include sandwiches, salads, gelato, tiramisu and specialty coffees. Located at 5016 51st Ave., the former site of the Blockbuster video store, the Red Deer restaurant has seating for about 80, plus a patio.
Red Deer-based Rifco Inc. (TSXV: RFC) has earned some ink in The Globe and Mail’s Report on Business Magazine. Rifco, which provides consumer financing for new and used vehicles, was ranked No. 493 in the magazine’s “Top 1000: Exclusive rankings of Canada’s most profitable companies,” published June 27. The rankings included the 1,000 largest publicly traded Canadian corpo-
rations, with these listed in order of their after-tax profits in the most recent fiscal year. Rifco earned $2.5 million, as of its March 31, 2012 year end. The company ranked 16th when it came to largest return on equity, with a 61.2 per cent figure. And Rifco was listed among the “Rookies of the Year” that cracked the Top 1000 list for the first time.

Canadian companies remain cautious ON INVESTMENT, HIRING BY THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA — Companies are pulling back on their investment plans and keeping hiring modest amid growing uncertainty over the economic recovery, a Bank of Canada survey of business intentions suggests. The latest quarterly survey from the central bank, released Monday, shows little appetite in executive offices across the country for the kind of investment decisions that would trigger stronger growth in Canada. The Bank of Canada has called on businesses to invest more in order to be in position to take advantage of the global economic recovery when it comes.

MARKETS CLOSE TORONTO — The Toronto stock market racked up a solid advance Monday amid rising metal prices, while traders looked to the kickoff of the second-quarter earnings season in the U.S. with results from resource giant Alcoa Inc. The S&P/TSX composite index advanced 73.96 points to 12,208.87. The Canadian dollar closed up 0.07 of a cent to 94.7 cents US amid data showing surprising strength in the Canadian housing sector in May. Statistics Canada reported that building permits worth $7.3 billion were issued in May, up 4.5 per cent from April. Economists had expected a drop of around 10 per cent. U.S. indexes ran ahead, building on strong gains from the end of last week after job creation figures from June blew past expectations. The Dow Jones industrials gained 88.85 points to 15,224.69, the Nasdaq was ahead 5.45 points at 3,484.83 and the S&P 500 index advanced 8.57 points to 1,640.46. After the close, Alcoa (NYSE:AA) posted quarterly earnings and revenue that beat expectations. The aluminum giant earned seven cents a share, a penny better than forecast. Revenue came in at $5.85 billion, surpassing expectations of $5.8 billion and its stock was 1.4 per cent higher in after hours trading. Despite the results, Alcoa had a tough quarter as its debt rating was downgraded to junk by Moody’s Investors Service on May 29, cutting the rating by one notch to Ba1 from Baa3 with a stable outlook. Moody’s cited weaker aluminum demand on slower growth in China and a recession in Europe for the move. Alcoa stock had closed up 11 cents to US$7.92, a long ways from its 52-week high of $9.93. Banks JPMorgan and Wells Fargo are also among companies that will report earnings this week. Analysts predict that earnings growth for U.S. companies in the Standard & Poor’s 500 index rose three per cent in the second quarter. While growth is down from five per cent in the first quarter, earnings are expected to remain close to record levels. Canadian corporations haven’t done nearly as well. Earnings for companies came in at $74 billion for the first quarter, down 1.2 per cent from the previous quarter with resource companies in particular hit by rising costs and lower commodity prices. On the TSX, railway stocks were lower amid questions about the transport of crude oil in the wake of a derailment over the weekend in LacMegantic, Que. At least five people are dead while about 40 people are still missing. Canadian National Railway (TSX:CNR) was down 73 cents to $102.73 and Canadian Pacific (TSX:CP) was off 52 cents to $126.69. Meanwhile, stock in pipeline company TransCanada (TSX:TRP) gained 82 cents to $46.41. TSX advancers were led by a rise of almost three per cent in the utilities sector. The group, like other interest sensitive sectors including pipelines and telecoms, have been under selling pressure since late May when U.S. Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke suggested that the central bank could taper its program of bond purchases. His remarks had the effect of pushing bond yields higher. The benchmark U.S. 10-year Treasury stood at 2.65 per cent late Monday afternoon, up about a full percentage point from May. Just Energy Group (TSX:JE) improved by 30 cents to C$6.45 while Canadian Utilities (TSX:CU) climbed $1.57 to $37.42. Oil prices were little changed after unrest in Egypt helped push the price of crude up seven per cent last week. The August crude contract on the New York Mercantile Exchange dipped eight cents to US$103.14 a barrel. But the energy sector climbed just shy of one per cent and Suncor
Energy (TSX:SU) gained 47 cents to C$31.60. Financials also provided lift with the sector ahead 0.75 per cent. Manulife Financial (TSX:MFC) gained 59 cents to $17.89 after earlier hitting a new 52-week high of $17.94. Mining stocks, which lead TSX sector declines for the year so far, fared poorly with the base metals sector down 0.13 per cent while copper prices edged up three cents to US$3.10 a pound after sliding 11 cents on Friday. Turquoise Hill Resources (TSX:TRQ) rose 43 cents to C$6.20 while Teck Resources (TSX:TCK.B) fell 37 cents to $21.18. The gold sector was down 1.5 per cent even as bullion prices headed higher amid a sign that the recent steep price drop may be coming to an end. The August bullion contract on the Nymex rose $22.20 to US$1,234.90 an ounce after strategists at Deutsche Bank said much of gold’s correction may have already happened. Prices have been particularly under pressure since the Fed indicated it could scale back bond purchases and data showed an improving U.S. economy and tame inflationary pressures. Gold now is down more than 30 per cent from a peak of around $1,900 an ounce in September 2011. Goldcorp Inc. (TSX:G) faded 55 cents to C$24.91 and Kinross Gold (TSX:K) dropped 13 cents to $4.85.

Mortgage changes cool market: study BY THE CANADIAN PRESS Ottawa’s move to tighten Canada’s mortgage rules a year ago helped cool down the country’s real estate market by forcing some first-time home buyers to delay their purchases, economists say. A Bank of Montreal (TSX:BMO) study suggests roughly one in five potential first-time homebuyers have postponed their purchase since Finance Minister Jim Flaherty introduced his new lending rules a year ago Tuesday. The rule changes included a reduction to the maximum amortization period to 25 years from 30 for insured mortgages. It was the fourth time Flaherty tightened mortgage lending rules in as many years, incrementally dropping the longest amortization period from 40 years. “It did take a bit of steam out of the market because it essentially forced quite a number of potential buyers, especially first-time buyers, to wait a while longer,” BMO’s chief economist Doug Porter said in an interview.
About 19 per cent of those polled by BMO said they decided to wait longer to buy their first home, while 66 per cent said the changes have not affected their timeline. Meanwhile, 14 per cent said they planned to buy sooner. A recent report by the Bank of Nova Scotia (TSX:BNS) estimated the mortgage rule changes may have pushed 10 per cent of potential buyers out of the market. Both Porter and Scotiabank economist Adrienne Warren said the changes helped the country’s overheated real estate market achieve its desired soft landing. “I think it was almost the perfect soft landing for policy makers,” said Porter. “It cooled, but it didn’t undergo a so-called hard landing. Sales did drop pretty heavily the first couple months, but then they stabilized and they’ve started to creep back up again.” Housing sales in the Greater Toronto Area were down by less than one per cent in June from a year ago while the average selling price climbed 4.7 per cent, ac-

PERMITS: Value rises Industrial permits added $2 million, up from $1.5 million in June 2012; commercial approvals totalled $4.7 million, down from $9.2 million; and residential projects contributed $5.9 million, as compared with $8.5 million a year earlier. Halfway through the year, the city has issued permits for a combined $135 million in construction, up from $127.5 million for the January-to-June period of 2012. Public permits accounted for $37.5 million of the 2013 tally, up from $7.7 million in the same category last year; industrial permit values climbed to $25.2 million from $9.3 million; commercial approvals added $18.7 million, down from $40.1 million; and residential projects accounted for $53.6 million, down from $70.4 million.
CROP: High production expected Last year, Canadian farmers benefitted from crop failures in the United States and other countries. But with many of the big producing areas of the U.S. escaping drought conditions this year, the expectation is production will be high. “If you look at the futures market, there’s very heavy downward pressure on the new crop prices,” said Brook. “They’re anticipating a big crop this year, and that’s going to bring crop prices down significantly.” While painful for crop farmers, that would help livestock producers, who last year were hurt by high feed costs. firstname.lastname@example.org
cording to recent figures from the Toronto Real Estate Board. Meanwhile, sales in Vancouver were up about 12 per cent in June compared to the previous year. Going forward, rising mortgage rates could block more prospective buyers out of the market, Warren said. Mortgage rates have been at all-time lows since the economic downturn, but fixed rates have slowly started to rise in the past two months. “The recent upward drift in mortgage rates could dampen housing demand in the second half of the year, especially in highpriced markets such as Toronto and Vancouver where affordability is more strained,” Warren said in a statement. The Bank of Montreal online survey polled 2,000 Canadians between Feb. 25 and March 5. The polling industry’s professional body, the Marketing Research and Intelligence Association, says online surveys cannot be assigned a margin of error because they do not randomly sample the population.
COMPANIES: Want expansion first But the survey of 100 representative firms suggested that executives appear to be saying the expansion must come first. “Expectations regarding the economic outlook remain muted,” the bank said of the responses. “Firms continue to express concerns about the prospects for domestic demand.” “While many firms note that gradually improving U.S. demands bodes well for their sales outlook, they generally expect U.S. growth to be slow over the next 12 months and competitive conditions in the U.S. market to remain intense.” On the key question on investment intentions, the balance of opinion — while still positive — declined for the third time in a row. Thirty-five per cent said they expected to increase their spending in the next 12 months, but 26 per cent said the opposite and 39 per cent planned the same level. The balance of positive investment intentions over negative of nine percentage points was among the weakest since the recovery began in 2009. “Many firms continued to indicate that economic uncertainty has caused them to delay some current or future projects, or to manage risks by targeting new or different segments of demand or choosing investments with smaller capital outlays,” the bank said. As well, on sales expectations, almost as many firms expect growth over the next year will be weaker than the previous 12 months as those anticipating a pick-up. CIBC economist Peter Buchanan said analysts had expected that firms would be more optimistic on the future sales question, rather the positive balance of opinion fell from 24 percentage points in the spring to nine points in the summer survey. “The latest Business Outlook Survey shows companies turning more cautious in the face of recent uneven growth, softer commodity prices and market volatility,” he wrote in a note to clients.
Deadly Quebec rail explosion highlights risks of oil transport BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON — The explosion of a runaway oil train in Canada highlights the risks that come from transporting oil, no matter the method. Spills from rail cars occur more frequently than from pipelines, but tend to be smaller. The Quebec disaster on Saturday that by late afternoon Monday was blamed for more than a dozen deaths underscores a trend in which North America’s oil is increasingly transported by train, as plans for new pipelines stall and existing lines struggle to keep up with demand. Since 2009, the number of train cars carrying crude oil hauled by major railroads has jumped nearly 20-fold, to an estimated 200,000 last year. Much of that comes from the Bakken oil patch in North Dakota and Montana, including the oil that spilled Saturday in Quebec. Because of limited pipeline capacity in the Bakken region and in Canada, oil producers are increasingly using railroads to transport oil to refineries.
D I L B E R T
The train that derailed early Saturday was on its way to a refinery in New Brunswick, Canada. All but one of the train’s 73 tanker cars were carrying oil when they somehow came loose, sped downhill nearly seven miles into the town of Lac-Megantic, near the Maine border, and derailed, with at least five cars exploding. It was not clear how fast the cars were moving when they derailed. The Canadian Railway Association estimates that as many as 140,000 carloads of crude oil will be shipped on Canada’s tracks this year — up from 500 carloads in 2009. The Quebec disaster is the fourth freight train accident in Canada this year involving crude oil shipments. Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, who has been pushing the Obama administration to approve the controversial Keystone XL oil pipeline from Canada to the U.S. Gulf Coast, has called railroad transit “far more environmentally challenging” than pipelines. Harper says the 1,700-mile Keystone project, which would carry oil derived
from tar sands in western Canada to refineries in Texas, is crucial to his country’s economic well-being. “The only real immediate environmental issue here is, do we want to increase the flow of oil from Canada by pipeline or via rail?” Harper said during a visit to New York in May. Fadel Gheit, an energy analyst at Oppenheimer & Co. Inc., said it would be a mistake to view the Quebec disaster as a boost for the Keystone project. “It’s almost jumping from the frying pan into the fire. I look better because the other guy looks worse,” Gheit said Monday. Gheit, who supports the Keystone pipeline, said Harper and other pipeline proponents will need to persuade the Obama administration on the project’s merits, rather than the dangers of rail. “If I have a choice of importing oil from Canada, Venezuela or Saudi Arabia, where would I feel much better with?” he asked, calling the answer obvious. Kate Collarulli of the Sierra Club said pitting railroads against pipelines was a false choice. “To say we have to choose between rail and pipelines is cynical and defeatist,” she said, calling oil a “dangerous fuel” no matter how it is transported. A report by the U.S. State Department this spring said that development of tar sands in Alberta would create greenhouse gases, but makes clear that other methods of transporting the oil — including rail, trucks and barges — also pose a risk to the environment. For instance, a scenario that would
move the oil on trains to mostly existing pipelines would release 8 per cent more greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide than Keystone XL, the report said. Even without the pipeline, extraction of oil from the tar sands is likely to proceed, the report said. The Sierra Club and other pipeline opponents challenge that idea, noting that while light crude from the Bakken is relatively easy to move by rail, moving the heavier tar sands oil by rail faces significant economic and logistical obstacles. The Association of American Railroads, an industry trade group, declined to comment on the Quebec disaster, citing the ongoing investigation and the loss of life. But in a “fact sheet” produced before the July 6 explosion, the group said that 99.9 per cent of all rail-bound hazardous materials shipments reach their destination without incident. Over the past 10 years, the number of rail cars containing hazardous material that were damaged or derailed declined by 38 per cent, according to the Federal Railroad Administration. The Association of Oil Pipe Lines called pipelines the safest way to deliver crude oil and petroleum products. In 2012, U.S. pipelines transported over 13.5 billion barrels of crude oil, gasoline, diesel and jet fuel across the nation, with 99.99 of those reaching their destination safely, the group said. Large mainline pipes, like the proposed Keystone XL, historically have faced a very low incident rate, the group said.

He said, “How is it more legitimate to grab a doughnut when under stress than to pour myself a cocktail?” There is a HUGE difference. I grew up in a home where both of my parents were alcoholics. Alcohol changes a person’s behavior toward others. Food does not. I would much rather have had obese parents than emotionally damaging alcoholics. I wouldn’t have needed so many years in therapy. — Lynn in Louisville Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Gay-themed music video finds success MUSICIAN STEVE GRAND’S VIDEO EXPLODES ON YOUTUBE BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LOS ANGELES — He’s a musician without a record label, a card holder without any remaining credit. And the gig that supplies what he calls “food money” may now be in jeopardy. But after events of the last week, Steve Grand said “I would die a happy man today,” and not for the reasons he’s suddenly getting attention. Grand’s first music video, for his country-tinged rock ballad All-American Boy, was posted on YouTube last Tuesday. By Monday, it had exploded, attracting more than 400,000 total views —— nothing for top-charting videos from bigname recording artists, but an impressive figure for one from a complete unknown whose only promotion has been internet buzz. The video cost just $7,000, a fraction of the major-names’ going rate, but it was a fortune to Grand, who came up with the entire budget himself by maxing out his only plastic to tell the video’s story. All-American Boy portrays a young gay man who misreads signals from an apparently straight “all-American” male friend. On a day hanging out with the gang, the two guys and a girl take off in a car. She drives, as the guys sit together in the back, with the straight man, at one point, falling asleep on the gay man’s shoulder. Feeling like a third wheel, the girl eventually, angrily

Musician Steve Grand, right, and actor Nicholas Alan appearing in this production still from the music video All-American Boy. Grand’s self-financed, gay-themed video has been viewed more than a quarter-million times since it was posted on YouTube on July 2. drives off, leaving the two men to pal around in the woods, where they end up stripping down and going skinny-dipping — even sharing a quick kiss. Ultimately for the straight guy, it was just all in good fun. But for the gay man, it was something much more significant, and he is left dazed, confused and longing. The story was inspired by one of Grand’s own. “I was a 13-year-old boy (at
camp),” noted the 23-year-old singer-songwriter, speaking by phone from his hometown Chicago. “One of my counsellors was warm and strong and he took an interest in me —— not sexually, but as a friend, and it really moved me. I remember leaving with a horrible ache in my heart.” While All-American Boy is told from the gay man’s perspective, Grand said he knew its tale of unrequited love would resonate across lines of
sexuality. He’s received hundreds of postings on YouTube, Twitter and Facebook from viewers, both straight and gay, saying they understand such rejection and heartache. “I’m not a crier,” noted Grand. “But since this all began, since people have been reaching out, I’ve been beyond moved, because so many people have felt what I felt, been through what I’ve been through.”
Grand said that upon discovering he was gay in eighth grade, he told friends, which quickly got back to his parents. They insisted he go to socalled “straight therapy,” which he endured for five years. But it didn’t work. He logged his full freshman year at Belmont University in Nashville, but, due to the costs, returned to Chicago. His recent employment has run the gamut from modeling to supplying music for Catholic church events, the latter being what he called the “foodmoney” gig. Grand said he has no idea where the YouTube success may take him, though he does admit he’s “not much of a singer” and more of a songwriter. “Of course, I want to continue to grow as a man and grow as an artist,” he commented. For now, Grand appears happy just being the moment, immersed in all those postings. “Just the hundreds of people who have said, ‘Your story is my story. Thank you for this,’ is enough for me.” “Like I said, I would die a happy man today,” Grand continued. “And it’s the first time in my entire life I can say that.” Follow Michael Cidoni Lennox at http://www.twitter.com/ MikeCLennox Online: http://stevegrand.bandcamp.com
Rapper/chef serves up emotions ROGER MOOKING CAN’T HELP USING FOOD METAPHOR
Edmonton-raised rapper/celebrity chef Roger Mooking can’t help but use a food metaphor to describe the making of his new hip-hop album, Feedback. “I wanted the album to be like chocolate truffles dipped in nails,” says the former Bass is Base beatboxing percussionist, who co-hosts TV’s Heat Seekers and stars in Everyday Exotic and Man Fire Food. “Like really creamy, dense centres but raw, jagged edges.” The wide ranging emotions on Feedback, out today, reflect the roller coaster ride Mooking has been on since releasing his 2008 album Soul Food. In the past five years, the amiable Trinidad native became a culinary star, opened and sold restaurants, did charity work locally and around the world, and went through some gutwrenching, unspeakable heartbreak with his wife. “I’ve had a lot of kids, we’ve lost some kids,” says Mooking, 39, in a recent interview. “We’ve just gone through a lot — a lot of ups and downs and just dramatic changes in the last five years and I felt that I had to just get it off my chest, really.” Mooking said he and his wife lost two children — one in 2009 and another last year — in childbirth. The father of three with another on the way (or, father of six, as he likes to say) lays his feelings about the tragedies bare on the powerful track Oh My God, which begins with the sounds of a church organ, a thunderstorm and an echo of Mooking screaming the title phrase. “Everything you need to know is on that record. “Truly everything,”
says Mooking, who also rhymes on the song about his faith being tested. “I don’t know if I would ever perform Oh My God live,” he adds later. “I can hardly listen to it, it just takes me too deep, you know what I mean? “But I needed to get that out.” The tunes Life is Fighting and Shoulder to Cry On also indicate Mooking is getting a lot out of his system on the album that was produced by Byron Wong and Chin Injeti, his former bandmate from the Juno-winning R&B/acid jazz/soul trio Bass is Base. But the disc also offers a joyful dancefloor groove with songs including Make Em Say (Watch Me) and The Afterparty. The Hum, meanwhile, is a bass-heavy ode to the energy and vibrancy of urban life; relationship woes are touched on in Must Have Been Love, Daddy’s Little Secret and We Should Go Back; and Centrefold is a tale of a self-absorbed fameseeker. “By far, this is my most personal record ever to date,” says Mooking, who recorded the project over a year in Toronto, Vancouver and Jamaica. “I made a very conscious effort to just be very frank.” It’s not completely personal, though. Mooking says some songs reflect the experiences of those he’s met through his travels with the charities World Vision Canada and Save the Children. “Because that’s really what feedback is about ... it’s really about a community, people communicating and telling their universal stories,” he says. In the vein of one of his favourite albums, A Tribe Called Quest’s Midnight Marauders, Mooking included a female narrator between songs. The voice is that of Odessa
Chambers, daughter of legendary reggae singer Jimmy Cliff. The narration further explores the album’s “feedback” theme and adds another voice to a disc that doesn’t have autotune or other “featured” artists. “I made a conscious decision to make a record that I carry,” says Mooking. “I’m sick of hearing songs right now that, it’s a good song but like, whose record is it? Is it Chief Keef’s record, is it Meek Mill’s record? You don’t know whose record is what anymore because there’s so many features on every record.” Overall, Feedback delivers an old-school hiphop vibe that harkens back to Mooking’s days breakdancing with his older B-boy brother in their parents’ basement in Edmonton, and MCing in rap battles at the local mall during cheap-movie Tuesdays. “I love hip hop man,” says the former member of Juno-nominated hiphop crew The Maximum Definitive. “It’s the core of what I think about every day listening to music. “It’s the root of me personally, it really speaks to me.” And even though he’s become a renowned chef, he never wants to give up his music. “I see a lot of parallels between cooking, creating dishes, and writing

RED DEER WOMEN SHARE A REMARKABLE HISTORY OF SECOND WORLD WAR SERVICE BY CAROLYN MARTINDALE ADVOCATE CITY EDITOR Two air force women who lived through high drama during the Second World War now swap war stories from the same Red Deer seniors home. Claire (Hall) Fairbairn and Barbara (Mckenzie) More, both 92, tracked and relayed the positions of enemy vessels and planes during the 1940s. They worked in air force operation rooms on opposite sides of the Atlantic Ocean. The two women have a rare kinship. Given advancing age, there are few women left who share their experiences. Fairbairn, a native of Mortlach, Sask., served with the Royal Canadian Air Force, women’s division, from 1942 to 1944. She relayed the positions of German submarines that threatened convoys of troops and freight along the East Coast of Canada. Fairbairn was stationed in St. John’s, Nfld., and Sydney, N.S. Until her arrival at St. John’s, she was unaware there were enemy submarines in Canadian waters. Fairbairn was part of an effort to protect the critical North Atlantic shipping lanes between Canada and Britain from invading boats. More performed similar spotting duties in an operations room at Dyce near Aberdeen, Scotland, to provide protection from German bombing raids. A native of Yorkshire, England, More served with the Women’s Auxiliary Air Force from 1941 to 1945. At the time, women did not pilot planes in active combat, but they faced the same dangers working in operational war zones. More recalls during the Battle of Britain “we were bombed almost every single night.” She remembers being jarred awake by sirens that sent them racing to the underground air raid shelters. Fairbairn recalls giving up her seat on a plane to an officer only to watch in horror as the plane went straight up in the air, burst into flames and came crashing down. “Everyone was killed. Fire everywhere. It was terrible,” Fairbairn said. En route to one of her postings, Fairbairn describes a gut-wrenching ship ride during high seas when there was a loud crash. Sirens signaled an enemy torpedo. They were about to be lowered to lifeboats below when the all clear sounded. They learned that the hit was from a giant wave. After arriving safely at their destination, they learned an earlier ship was lost to an enemy hit. Both women remember having huge respect for the pilots. More said: “When the pilots went up, you didn’t know whether

Habitat starts next homes Members of Habitat for Humanity Red Deer turned sod on Monday for new homes to be built in Grandview. The building at 3916 44th Ave. will be the 24th build and the first triplex for the local chapter of the international organization, which arrived in Canada during the mid-1980s. Sandy Gervais, director of development for the Red Deer group, said three families have been selected for the units, which should be ready for them to move in before Christmas. Habitat for Humanity builds homes for families who have never owned a home and could not afford to build or buy one on their own. Families earn their down payments by working alongside the volunteers who will build their homes. Mayor Morris Flewwelling, who was
TRIPLEX PROJECT among the dignitaries gathered to open the new project, said Habitat for Humanity offers a hand up rather than a handout. “We support the concept of helping families break that barrier of adversity with just a little help from their friends, neighbours and community,” Flewwelling said in a statement released prior to the 4 p.m. event. Habitat Canada president and CEO Kevin Marshman said the national organization has ramped up its goals, planning to provide homes for 1,800 families from 2012 through 2016. Habitat Canada’s 69 affiliates, including Red Deer, have served 2,200 families since building the first home in 1985 in Winkler, Man.

Man convicted in fatal collision Sentencing has been adjourned until early in October for a Red Deer man convicted on Friday of dangerous driving causing death. Gordon Lepore, 56, was convicted by Justice Dennis Thomas in Edmonton Court of Queen’s Bench in connection with a fatal collision on May 3, 2011. Court heard that Lepore was on Hwy 63, heading north toward Fort McMurray, when his one-ton pickup truck crossed the centre line and struck a southbound vehicle driven by Maria Aquino. After hearing from several witnesses, including those who saw the vehicle drifting back and forth across the highway, Thomas determined that Lepore had fallen asleep at the wheel. Sentencing has been adjourned to Oct. 4 to allow for the preparation of a pre-sentence report.

RCMP investigating private zoo’s trespass complaint BY THE CANADIAN PRESS THREE HILLS — The owner of a beleaguered private zoo in Alberta says people who secretly shot a behind-the-scenes video of his cages and animals are nothing but domestic terrorists. Guzoo owner Lynn Gustafson said he has filed a trespassing complaint with RCMP over the video, which was shot on the Canada Day weekend and has been posted on YouTube. The video, shot by a self-proclaimed unidentified whistleblower, shows graphic pictures of dirty cages, maggots in a feeding bowl and dead animals at the facility near Three Hills in central Alberta. “Domestic terrorists is what they are,” Gustafson said Monday. “The government has six months to do something about this group ... or I will shut my gates to the public. It will be for my family and my friends.” The video is just the latest problem facing the family-owned facility. In May, Gustafson called RCMP after someone cut holes in the fences around Guzoo, which is home to more than 400 animals, including a lion, a tiger, wolves, bears, bison, lemurs, camels, coyotes and emus, as well as domestic critters.

ment. The group posted a statement about the images on its website. “CCAAWPS feels this is the most damning evidence to date, depicting the extremely neglectful and substandard operations at Guzoo, that have always existed and continue to exist,” reads the message. Over the years people have lodged complaints with the Alberta Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and the province. Gustafson said an ASPCA officer was at Guzoo on Friday to investigate a complaint that was sparked by the video, but he said no charges were laid. The association said it investigates complaints, but won’t comment on investigations unless a charge is laid. Gustafson said the ongoing controversy over Guzoo, which promotes itself as a “Licenced Zoo and Animal Sanctuary,” is not hurting business. “This is the best summer we have had,” he said, estimating the zoo draws around 500 people on a busy day. “Mother’s Day was a record day for attendance and yesterday (Sunday) beat that again. “It is kind of gratifying. We must be doing something right.”
said More. Fairbairn said: “It was the adventure of a lifetime.” She was wide-eyed as she made her very first train, boat and plane trips en route to postings on Canada’s East Coast. Fairbairn and More said that air force women on both sides of the Atlantic were poorly regarded inside and outside the forces. More remembers the air force men didn’t believe women belonged in the air force. “They thought we would be interfering,” More said. “They adjusted and so did we.” Fairbairn said many civilians were hostile to air force women, who they regarded as the lowest of the low. “They were afraid we would steal their men.” A photograph of Fairbairn taken 70 years earlier shows a pretty woman in an air force uniform flashing an engaging smile. “We didn’t look too bad in a uniform,” Fairbairn said with a smile. firstname.lastname@example.org
Fairbairn said in her operations room, the big maps were on the wall. They were constantly being updated with positions of Canadian convoys and enemy submarines. More and Fairbairn remember other traumatic war incidents shared by family in the service. More said her oldest son was 14 years old when she first heard her husband, a medical student in the army, was in the operating theatre when the hospital was bombed, killing a man they had worked three hours to save. “When I think of all the horrible things he must have seen,” she said. Fairbairn said it was only a year before he died that her brother Eric told her that he recalled running beside a fellow soldier who was shot dead beside him. He also remembered the grim task of collecting the ID tags from dead soldiers so families could be told of their deaths. More ponders the losses and the dangers. “You wonder yourself, how did we survive? I guess we were tough,” said More.

Guzoo has been the focus of animal abuse concerns since it opened in 1990. In March 2011 someone posted pictures of a goat with its face covered in blood on Facebook. The Alberta government ordered Guzoo shut down in 2011 over concerns about animal care, but later reversed its decision. The province granted the zoo a new one-year operating licence in April. Officials with Alberta Environment, which regulates zoos, could not immediately be reached for comment. Last fall a government spokeswoman said an inspection of the zoo’s operations in July 2012 showed no problems with the health or condition of the animals. Gustafson declined to comment on the content of the video or the animal welfare activists. “They have been here about four times now. They have escalated. When this started out it was just a verbal thing a couple of years ago,” he said. “Now they start damaging property and breaking and entering.

FOCUS ON FAMILY
SLICE OF LIFE
ing romance alive in spite of the stresses of parenthood: When your husband comes home from work, let him know that you’re happy to see him. Don’t greet him with a laundry list of complaints or “honey-do’s” before he’s crossed the threshold. Demonstrate your love with a heartfelt embrace. Don’t allow the kids or the family dog to be the most excited ones to see him. Give him a few moments to unwind if possible. And even when you’re exhausted, make an effort to show interest in his world. Do you know what’s happening at his workplace? He’ll feel affirmed if you’re as interested in his day’s events as you would like him to be in yours. Also, schedule some uninterrupted “couple time.” Take the initiative to clear a night, arrange childcare and make some plans. You don’t have to wait for your husband to get the ball rolling. Regular “date nights” are critical. Finally, remember that men are affirmed by a positive sexual response from their wives, just as women are by thoughtful gestures from their husbands. Your husband will feel loved and honored when you initiate sex, especially if he realizes that you’ve had to plan carefully for intimate time with him at the end of a busy, tiring day.

Baggage is how you feel about things
books on relationships, provides a compelling description of emotional baggage: history is what has happened in our lives. Baggage is how we feel about it. According to Parrott, our psychological perspective on our past determines, to a great extent, our personal health and vitality. Even the most “perfect” upbringing has its baggage. Says Parrott, a traumatic event or abuse isn’t required to have emotional baggage. We would be hard pressed to find anyone who doesn’t have some emotional baggage. Whether it involved the death of a loved one, a divorce, physical abuse or emotional abuse — even disappointments and unfulfilled expectations — we all seem to pick up a few bags along the way. The issue is not the existence of baggage but how we choose to deal with it. According to Parrott, “Everyone has a history and an emotional response to it. What matters, when it comes to being a healthy, thriving human being, is whether or not you have deliberately unpacked your baggage.” Parrott goes on to say that a failure to unpack will certain thwart our personal growth and may even impact our physical well-being. We may never feel truly free or significant until we make peace with this emotional baggage. “The healthiest among us… explore what they feel and why they feel the way they do about their history. This act of simply identifying and labeling their emotions as they explore their past serves as an amazing springboard to personal growth, self-insight and maturity. In order to get beyond your past, you sometimes need to get into your past.” The old saying “time heals all wounds” only holds true if we actually begin the healing process. To that degree, Dr. Parrott offers the following therapeutic suggestions. Identify blind spots. This step requires total honesty and a willingness to face issues. Says Parrott, reaching this level of self-responsibility may require the help of therapist or, at least, an honest and trusted friend.

Pilgrims revere Rose Prince HUNDREDS GATHER IN THE B.C. COMMUNITY OF LEJAC FOR AN ANNUAL PILGRIMAGE BY THE CANADIAN PRESS LEJAC, B.C. — Hundreds of pilgrims, some from as far as Ontario, gathered in the British Columbian community of Lejac on the weekend for the annual Rose Prince pilgrimage. The young native woman, who died in 1949, is credited with numerous miraculous healings. Some believe the dirt of her grave holds healing properties. Some pilgrims scooped small quantities into plastic bags and pouches at Saturday’s pilgrimage, while others rubbed the dirt over parts of their bodies afflicted with injuries or sickness. Jean Felix took part because of her daughter’s arthritis, which was diagnosed when she was 16-months-old. Felix said doctors told her it could not be cured. “She has not had a flare-up since we have been coming,” Felix said. “It’s our fourth year. Her doctors are amazed.” Although many refer to her as a saint, Father Vincent James of St-Andrews Parish in Fraser Lake said canonization takes time and is subject to many scientific examinations. That did not deter the crowds of people who gathered for this year’s event. Originally from Fort St. James, about 100 kilometres north of Lejac, Prince came from a devout Roman Catholic family. As a young native girl she was sent to Lejac Residential School in 1922 at the age of seven. When it came time for her to leave at 16, she asked to be kept on as staff. She worked at the school until her death from tuberculosis.

STORY FROM PAGE B3
BAGGAGE: Taking ownership It will certainly require a level of self-awareness and courage that only comes from time in reflection and an honest commitment to self-esteem building. Stop the blame game. It may seem easier to go through life foisting the responsibility for baggage upon the shoulders of others: parents, siblings, an employer or a heartbreaker. It only appears to be easier. In reality, a failure to take ownership of issues makes life far more difficult and often much less enjoyable. Pointing the finger doesn’t change anything. Practise forgiveness. In order to be free of emotional baggage, it is crucial to reach a point of letting go of the hurt and extending forgiveness, especially to oneself. No matter how fierce, deep or protracted, no matter how much effect it’s had, failing to extend for-
giveness retains the burdens of bitterness, fear and regret. As for the gentleman in the above-mentioned story, I would never wish such an experience upon anyone. To lose everything — all of our memories — would be devastating. With perseverance and courage, there are ways that we could forget the injustices of the past, or if not forget them, then learn to give them far less prominence in our lives. H.E. Davey, author of Japanese Yoga: The Way of Dynamic Meditation, once wrote, “Emotional baggage, which is carried over from the past, colours our perceptions. Likewise, past conclusions and beliefs, based on reasoning that may or may not have been accurate, also tint our perception of reality,… keep us from seeing life as it really is at any given moment.” We may not have the option to erase our unwanted memories and ship our emotional baggage off to a faraway land, but we do have the option to take charge of it and therefore choose how it affects us. Decide now what you will choose to remember and what you will let go. Murray Fuhrer is a self-esteem expert and facilitator. His new book is entitled Extreme Esteem: The Four Factors. For more information on self-esteem, check the Extreme Esteem website at www.extremeesteem.ca.
and many children outgrow the first device and will need to be refitted with a second one to reshape their heads properly. As most provincial health insurance plans don’t cover the cost, parents must pay out of pocket, she said Knowing how common the condition is among Canadian infants is important “because it has a huge impact on our health-care system,” she said. “If you look at head shape clinics across Canada, currently some of them have a six- to eight-month wait. “So you want to be able to prevent this or catch it early.”

Almost half of Canadian infants develop flat areas on the back of their heads by the age of two months, likely the result of sleeping face-up to prevent sudden infant death syndrome, a study suggests. The study by Calgary researchers is believed to be the first in Canada to look at the incidence of what’s known as plagiocephaly, a flattening of the back of a baby’s skull. “What we found out was that when we studied infants that were seven to 12 weeks of age coming into two-month immunization clinics in Calgary, almost half of them had some sort of flat spot on their head,” said Aliyah Mawji of the school of nursing at Mount Royal University in Calgary. “That was pretty surprising. I didn’t anticipate that it would be that high.” Plagiocephaly occurs because the bony plates of a baby’s skull are soft and have not yet fused together. This flattening at the back of the head — typically on one side or the other, based on how the infant lies — can cause facial and other changes. “If they’ve got a flat spot on one side, what that likely means is that they’ve got the forehead protrusion on the same side and they also have a bit of ear shifting forward on the same side,” said Mawji. While the distortions are cosmetic and rarely cause a medical problem, left untreated they can become permanent and affect the child later in life. “I would assume that if you’ve got a child that looks a little bit different than some of the other kids in their class, they might be at risk for bullying,” she said. “Because you’ve got the chin that points in the other direction, you’ve got some shifting of the nose and the ears and the eyes and the forehead. “They’re going to look a little bit different. So we do need to be careful about that.” The study, published in Monday’s issue of the journal Pediatrics, involved 440 infants aged seven to 12 weeks who were assessed for plagiocephaly during well-baby visits at four Calgary community health centres in 2010. Researchers found that 205 — or 46.6 per cent — had some head-flattening. Almost two-thirds were affected on the right side of the back of the skull and almost 80 per cent had a mild form of the condition. Only a few of the infants had flattening on both sides of the back of the head, a condition called brachycephaly. Mawji said newborns often have some flat spots on their skulls as a result of their position in the womb or from pressure during vaginal birth, but this
usually resolves at about six weeks of age. Flat spots that persist are usually caused by how the child lies during sleep, activities during waking hours and feedings. “So if the baby is constantly placed in the same position, so either the same feeding position or the same sleeping position or being left in car seats or bouncy swings, we see more of what we call the positional plagiocephaly,” Mawji said. While the condition can be treated with specially fitted helmets, parents can take a few simple steps to prevent their baby’s head from becoming misshapen, she said. “The first thing that’s really important is to continue putting their babies to sleep on their back. We don’t want people changing their position of sleep ... because that would increase the chance that they would have sudden infant death syndrome. “But make sure that you’re varying the side of the head that the baby is turning to. So, for example, if you’re putting your infant to sleep on their back and they automatically turn their head to the right, because that’s comfortable for them, the next night what you want to do is turn their head to the left, and then alternate back and forth. “And that should help prevent the position of just the one flat spot on one side of the head.” Mawji said parents should also make sure that babies are not left too long in devices such as car seats or bouncy swings that put pressure on their skulls and can contribute to flattening. “What we recommend is only putting your infant in the car seat for travel purposes. When you get to your destination, you need to take your infant out of that car seat,” she said. “Same for a bouncy swing — get a different type.” Moms also should avoid holding their baby with the same arm for breast or bottle feeding, and alternate arms from one feeding to the next, she said. “Another thing that parents can do is promote tummy time, even when your baby’s a week old, that’s not too soon to start. “So lay the baby on its tummy, awake and supervised. It helps build muscle strength in the neck and shoulders and arms. “That will help the baby reach their developmental milestones, which is really important, and it also keeps the baby off their head,” Mawji said, advising that infants be put on their bellies for a few minutes with every diaper change. Steps such as these can prevent the need to have a child fitted with a helmet. These devices work by reshaping the skull over time, but they need repeated adjustments as the baby’s head grows and are also expensive. A helmet typically runs between $1,000 and $3,000,

Detroit Red Wings defenceman Chris Chelios holds the Stanley Cup after the Red Wings defeated the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup finals in Pittsburgh on June 4, 2008. Chris Chelios and Scott Niedermayer seem to be shoo-ins for the Hockey Hall of Fame. But will it be the year for Fred Shero, Pat Burns or Eric Lindros?
TORONTO — Lou Lamoriello gets chills at the mere suggestion that Pat Burns could be inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame some three years after his death. “He loved the game, was very successful at what he did and really was a misunderstood person at different times,” the New Jersey Devils general manager said of the late NHL head coach. “I would be just ecstatic if Pat went in.” The 2013 class will be announced today, and Burns is one of a few borderline candidates yet again, joining the likes of two-time Stanley Cup-winning Philadelphia Flyers coach Fred Shero and Hart Trophywinner Eric Lindros. A couple of the best defencemen of the 1990s — Chris Chelios and Scott Niedermayer — are favoured to get in, but after that it’s up for debate. Lindros won the Hart Trophy, Ted Lindsay Award and Art Ross Trophy during the lockout-shortened 1994-95 season and was considered the most dominant player in the NHL for a short period of time. His career, spent mostly with the Flyers, was cut short by concussions, though his 1.138 points per game has him ranked 15th among retired players. Burns won 501 games, one Stanley Cup and three Jack Adams Awards as a coach of the
Montreal Canadiens, Boston Bruins, Toronto Maple Leafs and New Jersey Devils. In 12 full seasons behind the bench, the team he coached missed the playoffs only once. “It’s the resume from top to bottom of a Pat Burns that gives him the criteria to be considered, and then it’s up to the committee and the people there to make that decision on what they do as far as how the voting process goes,” Lamoriello said in an interview Monday. Lamoriello hasn’t campaigned on Burns’s behalf, but Flyers owner Ed Snider has for Shero, who won back-to-back Cups as Flyers coach in 1974 and 1975. Shero was considered an innovator when it comes to having a coaching staff and integrating systems of play, and his posthumous candidacy has become stronger in the decades following his death in 1990. “I think it’s a disgrace that he’s not in the Hall of Fame,” Snider said. “The guy has accomplished all kinds of great things, and I don’t know what he’s being punished for. Is it because of the Broad Street Bullies? If so, then I shouldn’t be in the Hall of Fame, Bobby Clarke shouldn’t be in the Hall of Fame, Billy Barber shouldn’t be in the Hall of Fame, Keith Allen shouldn’t be in the Hall of Fame. The bottom line is he did an outstanding job, and he deserves to be in it.”

Jays first half has been inconsistent BY THE CANADIAN PRESS TORONTO — The Toronto Blue Jays have been at their inconsistent best this season. The optimism that surrounded the team at the start of the year was nearly snuffed out by a terrible start. An 11-game winning streak brought some much-needed relief and got people talking again. The 43-45 Blue Jays are hovering near the .500 mark and need a second-half surge to get in the playoff mix in the American League East. This is a team that has as many question marks now as it did in the spring. There have been some big disappointments and some intriguing surprises over the first half of the season. The new-look starting rotation has struggled more often than not. The bullpen — thought to be a soft point by many observers at the start of the year — has been dominant. Sluggers Edwin Encarnacion and Jose Bautista are posting big numbers again but too many weak points remain through the lineup. First baseman Adam Lind is enjoying a bounceback year and shortstop Jose Reyes has impressed with the bat and the glove. Injuries have taken a big toll and forced manager John Gibbons to be creative with his lineup. So is this the squad that was among the worst in the major leagues over the first six weeks of the season? Or is it the one
that looked as if it couldn’t be stopped last month? It’s hard to tell. “Well that little run we made in the last few weeks, we’re resilient, we could have disappeared,” Gibbons said in a recent interview. “We’re still on that fringe, we can go one way or the other so we need to play good baseball from here on out. “It would have been easy to really just disappear but they didn’t do that. They show up to play every day and that’s all we can ask for.” The rotation looked so deep in early April that there were several candidates for the ace title. However, the performances have been so uneven since that the team doesn’t have a clear No. 1 starter. R.A. Dickey has only shown flashes of his Cy Young form. Josh Johnson missed seven weeks with triceps inflammation and has yet to get on track. Mark Buehrle soaks up innings but often allows a lot of earned runs. Brandon Morrow was mediocre before going down with a forearm injury and J.A. Happ saw limited action before taking a liner off the head and injuring his knee. As a result, stop-gap measures on the mound have been the norm. Without the stellar crew of relievers, the Blue Jays would really be in trouble. Closer Casey Janssen has been excellent and left-hander Brett Cecil has posted all-star numbers. Steve Delabar’s strikeout totals are top flight and Juan Perez and Aaron Loup have also been quite effective.

I quickly got his attention and said, did you know you have a fleecy sheet hanging out the back of your hat? Now you may think this is funny but if you search your memory banks I am sure that this has happened to all of us at one time or another. I, being the nice guy, thought that he would kindly say thank you, remove the sheet and it would just be his and my little inside joke. Surprisingly enough, that started a ten minute conversation about how the fleecy sheet would help keep the mosquitoes away. Well, you could well imagine my response and quite frankly the motivation for this intro. After playing the course I quickly asked him how it worked. His response was that they left the back of his neck alone but still swarmed his face. My friend may not have kept the mosquitoes away that day but most certainly made a fashion statement as he looked like he was a member of the legionnaire’s battalion in Africa. Another interesting remedy was tree sap. Using tree sap apparently also keeps the mos-
quitoes away. I suggest the next time you go out and play take a little tree sap (I now sell that in the pro shop) and spread it under your eyes as if you were a football player. It may or may not work, but you would start a new trend and make a fashion statement for golfers. If nothing else I am sure it would scare the heck out of those pesky insects. What’s next, bat pee applied just below your ear lobes? Whatever remedy floats your boat, the bottom line is if you fail to prepare, prepare to fail! Understanding the proper swing motion when you take the club into your backswing and properly applying it to your golf swing will most certainly assist you in hitting the ball more consistent, ultimately lowering your scores. One of the more common swing flaws in the backswing is called the sway. The sway is a lateral motion of your right hip (for right handed golfers) as you take the club to the top of your backswing.

Canadian teams get wins at Universiade BY THE CANADIAN PRESS KAZAN, Russia — The Canadian women’s volleyball and basketball teams made successful debuts at the World University Games on Monday, while the men’s soccer squad took a big step towards securing a spot in the quarterfinals for only the second time in program history. In volleyball, Canada downed Norway 25-21, 25-14, 25-19 and is closing in on its first quarterfinal appearance at the Universiade since an eighth-place finish in Beijing in 2001. Lisa Barclay of Brandon, Man., and Alicia Perrin of Creston, B.C., paced the winners on offence with 11 and eight kills, respectively. Perrin added three blocks. Victoria’s Shanice Marcelle, who carried the Canadian flag into Saturday night’s opening ceremonies, added five kills, three blocks and 12 digs. Canada plays its final Pool B match Wednesday against Brazil. Algeria, which was also set to be in the group, withdrew just before the start of the competition. “I’m happy we’re moving closer to the quarters but I would have loved to play Algeria,” said head coach Arnd Ludwig, who is also at the helm of the senior national team. “I would have preferred to play an extra match rather than have an additional day off.” In basketball, the Canadian women jumped out to an 18-6 lead after the opening quarter and never looked back on their way to a dominating 76-48 victory over Japan. Lindsay Ledingham of Regina scored a match-high 19 points in 18 minutes on the court. The six-foot forward from the University of Regina, was perfect on eight field goal attempts and missed her only shot of the contest from the foul line, where she went 3-for-4. “This result is not really a surprise. We’ve been building towards playing well and the girls have been outstanding, they’ve really learned to play well together,” said head coach Fabian McKenzie.
The Canadian men’s soccer, basketball and water polo squads were also successful on the fourth day of competition, while men’s volleyball and women’s water polo suffered their first setbacks. In men’s soccer, Paul Clerc of Coquitlam, B.C., and Mario Kovacevic of Woodbridge, Ont., scored as Canada blanked Peru 2-0 to remain undefeated after two round-robin matches. Canada (1-0-1) faces Brazil (1-0-1) in its final Pool D match Wednesday. A win will see them through to the next round. The men’s basketball team improved to 2-0 with a lopsided 137-43 win against the United Arab Emirates. They resume pool play Wednesday against Australia. Brady Heslip of Burlington, Ont., and Kyle Wiltjer scored 22 points apiece, while Dwight Powell had 21. Head coach Jay Triano used his entire bench as every player saw at least 10 minutes of action. In water polo, the Canadian men jumped out to a 6-1 first-half lead and then held off a comeback from Georgia to win 10-9 and improve to 1-2 with two games remaining in the preliminary round. The men’s volleyball team suffered an unexpected setback in Group D action, dropping a four-set decision (20-25, 25-19, 17-25, 22-25) to Chile. In women’s water polo, Canada saw its preliminary round record drop to 1-1 following a crushing 24-4 loss to host Russia. In athletics, four Canadians competed in finals on Monday. Derek Lord of Whistler, B.C., had the top finish with a fourth position in the men’s 10,000 metres. He crossed the finish line in 29:12.90. In the men’s and women’s 100m, Sam Effah of Calgary and Shai-Anne Davis of Richmond, B.C., both took sixth place. In the women’s discuss, Rayann Chin of Pickering, Ont., was 11th with a throw of 46.44 metres. In beach volleyball, Melissa Humana-Paredes of Toronto and Taylor Pischke of Winnipeg won their only match of the day, while Rachel Cockrell of Winnipeg and Charlotte Sider of Ottawa went 1-1.

Orioles’ Davis highlights nearly complete Home Run Derby field BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK — Baltimore Orioles slugger Chris Davis, who leads the majors with 33 homers, will be one of eight participants in the Home Run Derby next Monday night during AllStar festivities at Citi Field. Davis was chosen by American League captain Robinson Cano of the New York Yankees. They will be joined on the AL squad by Detroit Tigers bopper Prince Fielder, who won the event last year and in 2009, and a player yet to be announced. New York Mets star David Wright, the National League captain, selected 20-year-old Washington phenom Bryce Harper along with Colorado outfielders Carlos Gonzalez and Michael Cuddyer. Major League Baseball announced the field Monday — or at least most of it. Cano won the 2011 Home Run Derby in Arizona.

Tate status unclear after injury to forearm Subsequent surgery and rehabilitation sidelined him for all but the final two games of the regular season. He then fractured a bone near the wrist of his throwing arm in the West Division semifinal win over Saskatchewan. Glenn was Calgary’s starter in the division final victory over the B.C. Lions and in the Grey Cup loss to the host Toronto Argonauts. Tate said he began feeling pain in his arm a month ago, but completed 19 of 27 pass attempts and threw three touchdowns in a 44-32 season-opening win over the Lions on June 28. The 27-year-old played an excellent first half in Regina. A pair of touchdown throws and 222 passing yards paced the visitors to a 21-14 lead at halftime. But Tate struggled in the second half and Stampeder penalties also aided a Saskatchewan comeback. “He was so focused and doing a great job,” Stampeder offensive coordinator Dave Dickenson said of Tate. “When he was getting pain in his elbow, it took away from his mental side of the game. He’d be the first to admit it. We lost our flow and it really hurt us.” Tate has become accustomed to questions about his health. “This is how it is, right? Starting quarterback goes out, everybody has to ask the questions and put it in ink,” he said. Glenn compiled 4,220 yards in passing for 25 touchdowns and a completion rate of 66.7 per cent during Tate’s absences last year. The 34-year-old was 4-for-7 for 41 yards in relief of Tate in Regina. “If was the number one, two or three guy, I’m always going to prepare as if I’m going to play,” Glenn said. “I’ll just wait to see what happens. I’m ready to go if the situation arises.”

Snider pointed to Shero leading an expansion team to a Cup and beating the Soviet Red Army in 1976 as primary reasons he should be in the Hall of Fame in the builder category. Though Shero hasn’t made it yet, it’s hard to find a reason to keep Niedermayer or Chelios out in their first year of eligibility. Niedermayer captured the Norris Trophy as the league’s top defenceman in 2003-04 and was a first- or secondteam NHL all-star four times. He was part of four Cup-winning teams, three with the Devils and one with Anaheim and was the Conn Smythe winner as the Ducks captain in 2007. “I don’t think you can ever overestimate how important he was,” Lamoriello said. “He was a team player and a teammate that everybody respected.” Chelios played 1,651 games in 26 seasons, good for fifth all-time. He took part in his final game at age 48 and is considered the best U.S.-born player in NHL history based on three Norris Trophies, seven first- or second-team all-star selections and three Cups. “He was probably the most competitive player I have played with,” said Eric Weinrich, who played defence with Chelios with the Chicago Blackhawks. “He was an underated offensive player, because he was such a tenacious defenceman. Cheli played just as hard during the lockout against the men’s league guys. He always wanted to win. I learned about competing every night watching him practise and play. Cheli should be remembered as one of the greatest ever.” Shanahan, in his second year of eligibility, could be next in line after Chelios and Niedermayer. He recorded 656 goals and 698 assists in 1,524 games and was a first- or second-team all-star three times. Other borderline candidates include Housley, Blake and forwards Dave Andreychuk, Theo Fleury and Jeremy Roenick. Up to four inductees can make up a class, including someone from the builder category. That builder could be Burns, who would be honoured 10 years after winning the only title of his career. “Pat came here and he had never won a Cup, he came here and won the Cup,” Lamoriello said. “You never realize how important that was to him, and then after he went through what he did, the relationship that he and I had and the type of person that I got to know, I’d be ecstatic.”
GOLF: Backswing Players tend to make this mistake primarily due to the fact that they are attempting to place their weight on their back foot in the backswing. This motion creates one of the most common mistakes golfers make which is a form of a reverse pivot. This causes you to become extremely inconsistent in your ball contact but generally will cause you to contact the ground before you hit the ball. The golf swing is more of a rotational motion rather than a lateral motion. Our attempt during the backswing is to start the golf club moving back by turning our shoulders. Once the shoulders start rotating, your torso will follow, then your hips and finally the left knee (for right handed golfers) will rotate towards your back leg and in some cases your left heel will lift off of the ground slightly. In your address position, your weight starts even on both feet. As you swing to the top of your backswing you need to have approximately 70% of your weight on your back foot. It’s how we get our weight to our back foot that is in question and will determine if you sway or not. As indicated earlier, the golf swing or swing motion is more of a rotational motion rather than a lateral motion. Understanding how the weight gets to your back foot will assist you in avoiding a swaying motion. First of all, the function of the hips is simple to rotate. There is no lateral motion with the hips at all in the backswing. Therefore it is not the hips that take your weight to your back foot. The function of the upper body or shoulders is also to rotate. There is however a lateral motion to the right (for right handed golfers) with the shoulders as you turn to the top of your backswing. Allowing your upper body to not only turn but to move laterally will place your weight on your back foot at the top of the backswing. Most golfers have an issue with this because they’re trying to keep their head still. In my view, one of the worst phrases in golf is to keep your head still! The head has to move slightly (approximately an inch) to allow your weight to transfer to your back foot therefore creating a proper coiling swing motion. This coiling motion is referred to as loading and if done properly will allow you to unload through the ball to your finish position. In other words, if done properly, you will use your big muscles (butt and tummy) rather than your small muscles (arms) to hit the ball. Eliminating the sway by creating a better coiling motion in the backswing will most certainly assist in creating consistent contact with the ball, increasing your distance and direction therefore lowering your scores and increasing your overall enjoyment of the game. Play well and have a great week on the course. Scott Bergdahl is the head professional at Lakewood Golf Resort
Injuries have been a factor throughout the lineup as well with Reyes and Brett Lawrie of Langley, B.C., missing significant time with ankle injuries. Melky Cabrera has battled hamstring issues all year and his range in left field has been significantly hampered. While the big bats of Bautista and Encarnacion have come through, centre-fielder Colby Rasmus and catcher J.P. Arencibia have yet to fully hit their potential. Munenori Kawasaki was a pleasant surprise as a fill-in for Reyes and outfielder Rajai Davis has been solid but newcomers Emilio Bonifacio and Maicer Izturis still look unsettled. The wild-card race remains a possibility and if the starters give the team a chance, the Blue Jays have the potential to be playing meaningful baseball in September for a change. “We just have to keep the momentum going our way and just focus on what’s allowed us to win games and that’s been great pitching and timely hitting,” Bautista said.

Froome gains momentum over Tour de France rivals THE ASSOCIATED PRESS SAINT-NAZAIRE, France — Given the dominant way Chris Froome is riding, he could take a big step toward winning the Tour de France on Wednesday. That is when Froome gets the chance to extend his lead over the likes of two-time champion Alberto Contador, 2010 winner Andy Schleck and his successor Cadel Evans in the Tour’s first individual time trial, one of his favourite disciplines. Froome’s rivals are already lagging behind after two punishing days of climbing in the Pyrenees that underlined the British rider’s status as clear favourite for the race. But Contador, who is nearly two minutes behind overall, has not given up hope. “I will try and do something,” Contador said Monday. “Everyone’s legs are hurting, but if you don’t think you can succeed then you never will. So we have to take a few risks.” The 28-year-old Froome has demonstrated panache and resilience over the weekend. First, he crushed his rivals with a brutal acceleration up to the finish line on Saturday’s eighth stage, and the next day he fended off attacks from rivals without the help of his teammates on an even tough-
possibly lose any time. If anything, he will keep on gaining it. That is providing his Sky teammates don’t have another bad day like Sunday, where they were dropped in the early climbs. “If we get another chance like this we will make the most of it,” Contador said. There is a glimmer of hope for Contador and others if they can work together against Sky when the race returns to the high mountains on Sunday. But that is easier said than done. Contador takes heart from having won the Spanish Vuelta last year, where Froome finished about 10 minutes behind in fourth overall. “I was in survival mode at the Vuelta,” Froome said. “If people want to make comparisons that’s up to them, but I don’t feel I was at my best.” Wednesday’s 33-kilometre (20.5-mile) dash from Avranches to MontSaint-Michel is a chance for him to put more time into Contador. “It’s a very flat time trial and that is a disadvantage for me,” Contador said. This is the 100th edition of the Tour and also the first since Lance Armstrong was stripped of his seven straight titles (1999-2005) for serial doping. Froome has said twice so far during the race that he is riding clean.

er mountain stage. “They were probably thinking about getting some time back on me,” Froome said. “I knew that those were attacks that I had to cover.” It is hard to spot any weakness in Froome, who finished runner-up to his Sky teammate and countryman Bradley Wiggins last year — when he had to curtail his own attacking instincts to serve Wiggins. After nine nervous, crash-filled days and 1,513 kilometres (940 miles) in the saddle, Monday’s rest day near the cooling waters of the Loire-Atlantique region could not come soon enough for the battered peloton after the stifling heat of southwestern France. Contador, Schleck and the 36-year-old Evans now have to figure out a way to take the yellow jersey off Froome. Contador is 1:51 behind in sixth; Schleck is four minutes back in 15th place; Evans is 4:36 adrift in 16th. Given that Froome has looked the strongest in the mountains, and is among the favourites on Wednesday, they have a lot of thinking to do. “It’s been a super first week,” Froome’s Sky team manager Dave Brailsford said. Unless Froome has an accident — and there have been several highspeed spills so far — it is hard to see where he can

move up the division standings. “We’ve got to play better than we did in the first half but I expect us to stay in this thing,” he said. “But we’ve got to be solid. We’ve got to get really good starting pitching and we’ve got to swing the bats. “We really like where our bullpen is at but it all starts on the mound with our starting rotation. If they pitch good, we’ve got a shot.”
STORIES FROM B5
CALGARY — The health of Drew Tate is in question again. After overcoming an injury-riddled 2012 season, the Calgary Stampeders quarterback is dealing with another injury — a strained forearm muscle in his throwing arm this time. Tate was on the field for Monday’s practice at McMahon Stadium. He worked on his footwork, but did not throw the football. Head coach and general manager John Hufnagel said Tate’s status was day-to-day. The coach wasn’t sure Tate would be able to play Friday in Montreal against the Alouettes. “We have to let it settle down,” Hufnagel said. “We’ll see how long it will take to get him back on the field throwing. Calgary and Montreal both started the season 1-1. Tate did not finish Friday night’s 3621 loss to the Saskatchewan Roughriders, leaving with about five minutes remaining. Veteran backup Kevin Glenn cleaned up in Regina, while Tate stood on the sidelines with an ice pack on his arm. “There’s a little pain there, but we’ll see tomorrow, see how it feels,” Tate said following Monday’s practice. “Am I confident I will be able to play in Montreal? I’m confident if I am called upon to play, I will play very confidently. If they tell me to go in there, I’m going to fire that ball.” Tate’s first full season as Calgary’s No. 1 pivot in 2012 was interrupted by injuries, starting with a separated shoulder in Week 2.

announcements DICK (Nee Deck) Katherine (Kay) Rose Katherine passed away peacefully with her family by her side on Friday, July 5th, 2013, at the age of 90 years. Katherine was born on December 13th, 1922 at Denzil, Saskatchewan. She left home to join the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1943 and worked as a leading aircraft woman until 1946. After the war, she lived and worked in Lacombe, AB where she met and married Pius Dick in 1948 where they resided for a short time before making Red Deer their permanent residence. Kay worked as a waitress before getting a very convenient job at the West Park Nursing Home directly across the street from their new home. She worked in the laundry department until the provincial government moved the department to the Red Deer Regional Hospital. She transferred to the new location and remained until her retirement in 1988. Kay was much loved everywhere she worked and in each of the communities she lived. Her kind and generous heart made it easy for her to make friends. She and Pius loved to travel. They enjoyed many airplane trips, bus trips, cruises, and travelling in their motor home. They spent many winters in Arizona after retirement and the friendships kept accumulating. Her hobbies were many and changed as the years progressed. She spent endless hours working on needle point, rug hooking, fabric painting, making afghans and many 1000 piece puzzles. She also loved cooking, baking, her garden and flowers. If she wasn’t canning or freezing it, she was baking and cooking it. Kay taught her three children the importance of family through the love she displayed for her own parents, brothers, sisters, in-laws, and all their children. She will be very deeply and sadly missed but lovingly remembered and always cherished in the hearts of her family and dear friends. Kay leaves to mourn her loss, daughter Lorraine (Karl) Martinek, her son Wayne and Susan Hawkins, her son Ronald; five precious grandchildren: Sonia, Curtis (and Taryn), Danelle, Kristina (and Casey) and Desiree (and Simon); and her very special eight great grandchildren, Kyah, Jared, Aliyah, Kius, Jakob, Talissa, Jabin, and Kaylan. She will also be sadly missed by her sister, Irene McDonald and brother Jack (and Edna) Deck as well as numerous nieces, nephews, and countless dear friends. Kay was predeceased by her parents Jacob and Lena Deck; three brothers, Frank, Roy, and John; and two sisters, Helen Deck and Josephine Lisch. Prayers will be held at Sacred Heart Catholic Parish, 5508-48A Avenue, Red Deer, AB on Wednesday, July 10th at 7:00 pm. Funeral Mass will be celebrated at Sacred Heart Catholic Parish on Thursday, July 11th at 11:00 am. Both will be officiated by the Reverend Father Martin Carroll. Interment will follow at the Alto Reste Cemetery, Red Deer, AB. In lieu of flowers, the family has suggested a memorial donation in Kay’s honour be made to a children’s charity of your choice. Condolences may be forwarded to the family by visiting www.eventidefuneralchapels.com. Arrangements entrusted to EVENTIDE FUNERAL CHAPEL 4820 - 45 Street, Red Deer. Phone (403) 347-2222
GERRARD Kathleen Gerrard entered the gates of Heaven in the early morning of July 4, 2013, passing away peacefully at the Rosefield Care Centre in Innisfail at the age of 92. She was born on August 13, 1920 at Knee Hill Valley, the second of two daughters born to Irish immigrants George and Esther Brownell. She attended Steadman School, and completed high school in Innisfail. She graduated from Normal School in Calgary in 1941. Kathleen married Wilbert Gerrard on July 16, 1947 and they lived on their farm northwest of Wimborne for 30 years. There they raised their two daughters, Beverly and Joy. She had a long, fulfilling teaching career, beginning in the one room schools of Milner and Steadman. She also taught at Bowden School, and for 17 years in Wimborne. Kathleen was a very hard working farmer’s wife, always ready to lend a hand wherever it was needed. She was a loving and caring mother and grandmother, and a dedicated teacher. She was good at multi-tasking, and was successful in balancing a busy life of family, farming, and teaching. She had a passion for her flowers; she could make anything grow, and her garden was full of color and beauty. She loved attending the annual flower shows, where her efforts were always rewarded. She took special pride in her roses, of which she had numerous varieties. Kathleen and Wilbert were active members of the Wimborne Alliance Church, where Kathleen taught Sunday School and was leader of a girls’ club for many years. Her strong and constant faith in God was evident in every aspect of her life. In 1977, Kathleen and Wilbert sold their farm and moved to Red Deer, where she did some substitute teaching. They attended the Deer Park Alliance Church there. Over the next few years they were able to enjoy travelling to various destinations together. After Wilbert passed away, Kathleen made many new friendships as she continued her travels throughout the world. Kathleen is survived by her loving daughters, Bev (Bert) Whatley of Wimborne, and Joy (Dave) Casselman of Olds; five grandchildren, Carmen (Brent) Leischner, Kyla (Daniel) Wilson, April (Dave) Richardson, Julie Casselman and Aaron Casselman; eight great-grandchildren, Jayden, Aliyah and Liam Leischner; Olivia and Caleb Wilson; and Autumn, Aria and Lochlan Richardson. Kathleen is also survived by her brother-in-law Bill Huss, and numerous nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her husband, Wilbert, in October of 1981, her parents, George and Esther Brownell, and her sister, Georgina “Ena” Huss; parents-in-law, Alex and Janetta Gerrard; brothers-in-law, Sandy Gerrard, Stan Gerrard, and Lester Saunders; sisters-in-law, Verna Gerrard, Marguerite Gerrard, and Chrissie Saunders, and a nephew, Keith Huss. Kathleen’s family would like to thank the wonderful staff at the Rosefield Centre for their kindness and compassion over the past seven months. A private family interment will take place on July 10, 2013 at the Alto-Reste Cemetery in Red Deer. A celebration of Kathleen’s life is planned for August with details available at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial tributes may be made directly to the Canadian Cancer Society or the Alberta Heart & Stroke Foundation.

Jessie is predeceased by her parents Frank a n d E l s i e Ya r d l e y, h e r husband Curtis Larry of 52 years, sister Irene (Wes) Cline, her grandson Keith Randall, numerous aunts, uncles, in-laws and nephews. Jessie was born in Calgary, AB on October 6, 1930 at the Grace Hospital. She went to elementary school in Calgary, grade 5 in Sundre, then back to Calgary for grades 6 through 9. In 1945-6 she worked at the White Spot in downtown Calgary as a waitress. Then she worked at the White Dot on 9th Ave as a waitress for two years. Next she worked at Clennans Coffee Shop on 8th Ave W. Her wage was $15/week. She started out as a waitress, then to grill cook, head cook, head waitress, and back to cook. This restaurant sat about 100 people and as cook, Jessie could remember all the orders as they yelled them in for her, as well as the other cooks. Jessie married Curtis Larry Tonneson in March 1950 and they honeymooned in Banff. Soon followed were Curtis, Pamela, Wendy and Darlene. They moved to the Clive district in 1964 and the family was complete with the arrival of Joanne and Susan. Jessie was a successful entrepreneur operating the A&W drive-in in Ponoka, Catering, as a cook for Jomacks in northern Alberta, and managing the kitchen in the Lacombe Auction Market where everyone respectfully enjoyed her burgers, coffee and delicious pie every week. She was an instrumental volunteer with the Tees Agricultural Society, the 50+ Seniors Group, and the Tees UCW cooking for the famous turkey suppers that were held for many years. Hummingbirds, gardening, swimming, delicious baking, horses, watching the pacer races, and looking after her many fowl were some of her passions. Jessie’s family was most important to her and she insisted on feeding everyone at every visit. She was the instigator in most of the family water fights. We invite you to a casual gathering (evening tea) to celebrate Jessie’s life at the Tees Community Hall on July 16th from 7-9 PM. A family Interment service will be held at a later date.

Sinkhole forces choice for Louisiana community BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS BAYOU CORNE, La. — The sob is deep and exhaled on a frustrated sigh. “I cannot stand this!” The words burst from Annette Richie and ping off the bare walls of the empty living room as her neighbours of 20 years, Bucky and Joanie Mistretta, recall happier times along Bayou Corne. “I know, I know,” Joanie Mistretta said, soothing her. “You come back now and it’s just sad.” They were supposed to be planning camping trips, cookouts and potlucks. Instead, the Mistrettas, the Richies and many neighbours in the swampy Assumption Parish community are packing up decades’ worth of belongings, chased from waterfront homes that were supposed to be retirement nests by a gas-emitting, 22-acre sinkhole less than a mile away. The sinkhole, discovered Aug. 3, resulted from a collapsed underground salt dome cavern about 40 miles south of Baton Rouge. After oil and natural gas came oozing up and acres of the swampland liquefied into muck, the community’s 350 residents were advised to evacuate. Texas Brine Co., the operator of the salt dome, is negotiating buyouts of residents who have not joined lawsuits filed against the company. Texas Brine spokesman Sonny Cranch said 92 buyout offers have been made, with 44 accepted so far. The Mistrettas, retired educators, are taking the buyout offer. Richie, a high school literacy teacher, and her husband are part of a class-action lawsuit that’s scheduled for trial next year. Both families have bought new houses, in Ascension and Assumption parishes.
After two decades together in Bayou Corne, they won’t be neighbours anymore. “We just feel that this place is not ever going to be what it once was,” said Bucky Mistretta. “It was just a beautiful, pristine place on the bayou. And now that’s gone, and we just don’t feel safe about what’s underneath us.” Residents who want to stay are wrestling with the same fears as their fleeing neighbours: Is it safe? Will the slowgrowing sinkhole undermine the area’s infrastructure, including Louisiana 70? And will the natural gas bubbling to the surface on the bayou accumulate in confined spaces and cause an explosion? Although parish officials have said they don’t think either will happen, they are monitoring both issues. Gas has been detected under at least four homes on the north side of the community, but the levels were low, said John Boudreaux, director of the Assumption Parish Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness. Officials expect the sinkhole area to stabilize once debris fills the void created by the collapsed cavern. However, the land has continued to shift and the hole has continued to grow. A salt dome is a large, naturally occurring underground salt deposit. Companies drill on the dome’s outskirts to create caverns in which to extract brine that is used in the petrochemical refining process, or for storage of such things as hydrocarbons. Officials say a cavern was being mined too close to the edge of the Napoleon Salt Dome, which caused the “unprecedented” side wall collapse. The state fined the company $260,000 last year for its slow response in following state directives to build a containment berm around the sink-
hole and to install air monitoring devices in homes. Dennis Landry, a 20-year property owner who developed and sold the lots in his subdivision and who owns a boat launch business that fronts Sportsman Drive, is staying put despite the sinkhole. “It’s hard to leave a beautiful little bayou paradise unless you feel it’s absolutely necessary, and thus far, we’re just hanging on,” he said. “We go to the meetings. We get daily reports. We check the blog for any information. We have gas monitors inside of our homes. We just take it day by day.” Louisiana Highway 70 divides this pint-sized community of trailers, wood and brick homes. The south side is newer, sports an upscale subdivision of 22 houses and has Bayou Corne flowing through the backyards. With street names like Crawfish Stew, Sauce Piquante, Bream Street and Sportsman Drive, it’s clear that the bayou flowing through en route to Lake Verret is the main draw for many of the residents. Boats and campers are a fixture in most driveways, whether paved concrete or a bed of rocks. The “no trespassing” signs in many yards, however, are new. After 26 years, Kenneth Simoneaux said he is ready to leave his acre of lush land bordering a narrow canal that empties into Bayou Corne. He and his wife are living in a 29-foot camper trailer in what he calls “a concrete village” in nearby Pierre Part. “I never thought anybody could push me to the point where I would actually be ashamed to admit where I live,” he said, sitting on a folding chair outside his trailer. “I was so proud of my home. I’m lost.”

U.S., China kick off annual dialogue with talks on cybersecurity BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON — U.S. and Chinese officials began formal discussions on cybersecurity Monday, kicking off four days of talks to build co-operation and broach issues that divide the two world powers. Washington is increasingly concerned about the Chinese theft of U.S. intellectual property, but it has put been on the defensive by the revelations about U.S. surveillance by National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden. A bilateral working group on cyber issues that was announced in April held its first meeting Monday at the State Department, with both civilians and military taking part. The U.S. side was led by the co-ordinator for cyber issues, Christopher Painter;

tory of Hong Kong refused to extradite Snowden — a move which U.S. officials implied that Beijing was involved in. Officials are likely to play down those differences in this week’s talks. The Obama administration says resolving the cybersecurity issue is key to the future of ties between the world’s two largest economies, and U.S. businesses are also speaking out. “The U.S. in the cyber arena is trying to drawing a bright red line,” Brookings Institution scholar Kenneth Lieberthal, wrote in a commentary. “Effectively, the U.S. position is everyone conducts espionage; we don’t object to Chinese espionage, they should not object to ours. But the U.S. does not do commercial espionage to benefit our own firms’ competitive position, the Chinese side does, and we insist that they stop.”
