Police hunting for carjacking suspects JEEP STOLEN AT KNIFEPOINT FROM CHAPTERS’ PARKING LOT BY SUSAN ZIELINSKI ADVOCATE STAFF
BY CRYSTAL RHYNO ADVOCATE STAFF Poor ticket sales and a lack of volunteers has forced the cancellation of the Central Music Festival. Set to take place this Friday to Sunday, the seventh annual music festival was to have featured Bill Bourne, Amos Garrett, Captain Tractor and Randi Boulton among 27 acts. In a letter posted to the festival’s website on Monday, Mike Bradford, Central Music Festival Society president, said he cannot in good conscience move forward with this year’s festival. Reached around 5:30 p.m. on Monday, Bradford declined to answer any questions until Tuesday afternoon. Bradford said it has been a “difficult 24 hours” and needed some time. Boulton said she was “completely shocked” when she heard the show would not go on, especially since other events in the arts are doing well. “The province has been hurt so hard by storms this year,” said Boulton. “I know a lot of people who are spending their time this year donating to relief that way. I think the priorities have shifted to helping out our fellow neighbours.” Bradford said on the website this was the first event he’s ever had to cancel an event in more than 25 years. “I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you,” he said. With just four days until the festival was to start only 100 advanced tickets were sold. About 800 tickets and twice as many volunteers were needed to put on the festival. “I can’t see any benefit in thinking that we’ll have 700 people ‘walk up’ to the gate — we need to sell that amount of tickets in order to cover the expenses for the weekend,” said Bradford in the letter. There was no mention of refunds for those who have already purchased advance tickets. Early-bird tickets were $50 a person for the entire three-day festival and were available for the month of May. Regular single ticket prices varied depending on the day and the buyer. In the same letter, Bradford said the committee will regroup this fall to put together a festival for 2014 with a similar lineup. In 2012, an estimated 700 concert goers went to the festival each day. email@example.com

A witness to a mid-day carjacking in Chapters Red Deer parking lot believed the two suspects were approaching people for money before they stole a man’s Jeep at knifepoint on Sunday. “They came right up to my window. But they didn’t talk to me. They walked away. I’m very thankful,” said the woman, who had her six-year-old daughter in the backseat. “They were talking to a woman right behind me and they upset her so I was keeping an eye on them and I called the police. Something just didn’t feel right,” said the witness, who didn’t want to be identified. She thought she saw something in one man’s hand, possibly a tool to break into vehicles, and she followed the pair in her vehicle. She was a few rows away when the carjacking occurred. Red Deer City RCMP say that at about 2 p.m., a man was sitting in his Jeep when two men approached the driver’s side window, produced a knife and demanded he get out. When the owner got out, the two men got in the vehicle and fled the parking lot, located at 5250 22nd St. “He was very shaken up. I think he was in shock,” said the witness about the carjacking victim. Several people went over to help him before police arrived, she said. “We were all on the phone with police.” Red Deer RCMP Cpl. Sarah Knelsen said the last carjacking in the city was in the spring. “This is not a normal situation for Red Deer and we are treating it as a high priority and we’re investigating it still,” Knelsen said. One suspect was described as in his 20s, aboriginal, tall, and skinny. He had long dark hair in a ponytail and wore a baseball cap. The other suspect was also in his 20s, aboriginal, with short dark hair. He wore jeans and a T-shirt. The vehicle that was stolen was a 2012 Jeep Patriot with the Alberta licence plate SCC 344. Anyone with information to assist police in identifying the suspects is asked to call the Red Deer City RCMP at 403-343-5575, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477. firstname.lastname@example.org
Expense audit ‘flawed’, ‘unfair’: Wallin BUT SENATOR VOWS TO PAY BACK, WITH INTEREST, ANY DISALLOWED EXPENSES BY THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA — Sen. Pamela Wallin struck a defiant tone Monday after what she called a “fundamentally flawed and unfair” audit flagged more than $140,000 worth of travel claims dating back to her earliest days in the upper chamber. But Wallin, citing her desire to get back to her work representing the people of Saskatchewan, promised to pay back — with interest — any disallowed expenses “out of my own resources” once she is asked to do so. Sources familiar with the 95-page Deloitte audit say it recommends that the embattled former Conservative pay
back $121,000 in travel costs, and that an additional $21,000 worth of claims be more closely examined But Wallin made no apologies for traversing the country t o c h a m p i o n Pamela Wallin causes. “When appointed to the Senate in 2009, I was determined to be an activist senator — one who saw it as her job to advance causes that are important to Canadians,” she told a hastily assembled

news conference. “When invited to appear publicly and speak ... I saw it as my duty to accept whenever I was able to do so. Travel to these public speeches and appearances was — and is, in my continuing view — a legitimate Senate expense.” Wallin took issue with the way accounting firm Deloitte, which conducted the audit, used more recently established rules governing Senate travel and expenses to assess the validity of earlier claims. “It is my view that this report is the result of a fundamentally flawed and unfair process,” she said.
New trial ordered in death at bar CALGARY — A new trial has been ordered for a man convicted of killing a college student when a pickup truck rammed a group of people outside a bar in Central Alberta. Jeffrey Leinen of Calgary was convicted in December 2011 of seconddegree murder and aggravated assault in a crash outside the Texas Mickey Bar in Olds. He was sentenced to life in prison for the death of Nicholas Baier, an 18-year-old student at Olds College, and the injuring of a second student.

Italians wrap up scooter tour in Red Deer BY MURRAY CRAWFORD ADVOCATE STAFF Starting in Lethbridge, two Italians rode their kick-scooters more than 600 km through parts of Alberta, finishing in Red Deer. Sleeping on the side of the road, by a river, in a campground, with a group of Harley-Davidson riders or in a house thanks to one nice old hippie, David Ceccarelli, 41, and Andrea Gesmundo, 26, toured southeast and Central Alberta. “It’s a sport I’ve always done since I was a child,” said Ceccarelli. One of the sponsors, Yedoo out of the Czech Republic, provided the kick-scooters with a prototype motor. The two have been with the company for three years. “This kind is a cross-breed of a skateboard and a kick-scooter because you have to manage your balance properly,” said Ceccarelli. The Prato, Italy, natives have travelled all over the world from their home near Florence, doing trips through Scotland, across Iceland, Germany, Wales and England. The duo started in Lethbridge, then went to Taber, rode north on Hwy 36 and stayed a couple of nights at Dinosaur Provincial Park. “We stayed between rocks, lots of flies and everything,” said Ceccarelli.
They then went to Drumheller and looped towards Red Deer. “Originally we had to finish in Edmonton, but this travel has been like a straight jump into the ’70s,” said Ceccarelli. “We met a lot of very artful people like gypsies, hippies from the ’70s, Harley-Davidson group and we have always been adopted. So we decided to follow the Red Deer River to finish here because it sounds more familiar to us.” On Monday, they were heading to Calgary by airport shuttle before flying to Toronto and then on to Venice and home. Along the way, they have met with local media in the various communities they have been to. “At the end of this travel we have the rights for a book,” said Ceccarelli, who is a writer and illustrator. “A publishing house from North Italy has already bought it.” Gesmundo, who is deaf, is an accountant in Italy. They expected things to be a little smoother because of Alberta’s flat terrain. Ceccarellia said he broke his front wheel five times and had to change to a bigger one that could hold up. To fit it on his kickscooter, he had to undo his front brake. “He (Gesmundo) has broken seven spokes,” said Ceccarelli. “We found a very good man who helped us, a mechanic.” Next year they will traverse Spain, which Ceccarelli has done in the past. And they have their sights set on a tour of Japan’s Hokkaido Island.

AUDIT: Examined flights “Deloitte has — wrongly, in my view, and in the opinion of my lawyers — applied the 2012 changes made to the senators’ travel policy retroactively. The result is that travel expenses which were approved and paid by Senate finance in 2009, 2010 and 2011 have, in a number of cases, now been disallowed.” Wallin said she never knowingly tried to claim expenses that she didn’t believe were legitimate Senate business. “I want to be absolutely clear. I never intended to seek, nor sought, reimbursement for travel expenses in any situation where I did not believe such a claim was proper,” she said. “Where I made mistakes, I have already paid money back.”

The audit examined every flight Wallin took over 1,369 days between Jan. 1, 2009, and Sept. 30, 2012, between Ottawa and Saskatchewan, the province she represents — many of them with stopovers in Toronto of at least one night. A number of additional flights between Ottawa and other locales are also called into question by the audit, the source said. Conservative Sen. Marjory LeBreton, the leader of the government in the Senate, said Wallin will be expected to repay any expenses that didn’t pass muster.

Defence lawyer Jennifer Ruttan argued at an Alberta Court of Appeal hearing in April whether the judge’s charge to the jury properly accounted for the possibility that the October 2010 crash was an accident. In a two-to-one decision, the high court has ordered a new trial, stating that the judge in the original case failed to properly instruct the jury on the legal significance of the panic attack defence. Calgary lawyer Jennifer Ruttan, who represented Leinen during his appeal process, said she has not yet spoken to her client for further instructions. Correction Services Canada had not received instructions concerning Leinen’s release status as of Monday afternoon, said media relations officer Jeff Campbell. Under the existing sentence, he is eligible for day parole in October of 2021 and full parole in October of 2024. Whether Leinen can be granted release pending his new trial will have to be worked out in the court system, said Campbell.

Officials at Mountain View County are drafting their reply to a lawsuit alleging that they changed rules on a development project, causing financial damage to a private developer. Calgary-based Neuroese Properties, one of the firms involved in the Netook Crossing site east of Olds, wants the county to pay $32.3 million in damages after alterations were made in the municipal development plan. A realty adviser with Neuroese told the Advocate in November that county council’s decision to change the MDP in July 2012 and then repeal the Neetook Crossing North concept in October had adversely affected his project and others. “In essence, the MDP changes put the brakes on the Neetook Crossing North concept plan,” Styles said in an email to the Advocate. Neuroese has filed its statement of claim in Calgary Court of Queen’s Bench, naming the county as well as Councillors Paddy Munro and Kevin Good. The county’s reply to the lawsuit is due later this month. In a press statement issued on Friday, Deputy Reeve Patricia McKean said council is preparing its response. Members of the public were invited to participate in a “lengthy and thorough” process in which there were a variety ways of providing input, McKean said in her statement. “We are being forced to deal with this situation through the courts. Out of respect for that process, it would be inappropriate to further discuss this matter in the public arena,” she said. County council’s next meeting is on Wednesday.
ALBERTA Girl to receive life-saving drug

BY THE CANADIAN PRESS EDMONTON — The family of a three-year-old Alberta girl learned Monday she will receive a potentially life-saving drug for a disease that is causing cellular waste to build up in her joints and around her heart. The province announced it will fund enzyme replacement therapy for Aleena Sadownyk of St. Albert, just outside Edmonton. “It was very emotional,” Aleena’s father, Dane Sadownyk, said. “The first thing I did was pick up my daughter and give her a huge hug. “It’s been a challenging and a tough road.” A panel of medical experts with Alberta Health Services made the decision to fund the drug Naglazyme for Aleena. Health Minister Fred Horne did not intervene in the decision, saying it needed to be made for medical reasons alone, but agreed it was a good day for the Sadownyk family. “Obviously for the family it’s a positive outcome,” said Horne. “These decisions are difficult, and we face more and more of them all the time in Canada as we have more drugs becoming available to treat rare ... diseases.” The drug costs $300,000 or more per year for children, and because the dosage is tied to weight, can rise to $1 million a year for adults. Those on it are on it for life as the drug does not cure the illness, but simply stops it from worsening. The Sadownyks had been working with the province since the spring, after Aleena was diagnosed with Maroteaux-Lamy syndrome, also known as MPS VI. MPS VI patients lack the enzyme in blood that breaks down cellular waste. The waste then accumulates in the bones, tissues, and organs, leading to stiffened joints, heart and airway blockages, and potential death. Dane said he and his wife, Laura, noticed something was wrong with Aleena — their middle child of three children — when she had trouble raising her arms, touching her shoulder or making a fist. “We initially just thought she had arthritis because it does run in our family,” he said. As they learned more about the disease they got in touch with Andrew McFadyen, who advocates

for families dealing with MPS VI, to get funding for Naglazyme, which acts as an artificial enzyme to break down the cellular waste. The drug is not approved yet for use in Canada, although it is in other countries such as the United States. It is permitted in special cases in Canada and is paid for in B.C., Saskatchewan, Ontario, and Quebec. Of the nine children in Canada with the illness, Aleena was the only one not getting the drug prior to Monday, said McFadyen. Aleena was initially denied funding for the treatment under the Alberta Rare Diseases Funding Program, but was approved Monday under the Short Term Exceptional Drug Therapy program, which provides the treatment for six months. Horne said it’s up to the doctors to decide how and when the drug is administered after that. “The medical experts will make decisions around how the drug is made available, how the monitoring takes places, and with respect to the ongoing coverage,” he said. The parties had been quietly working on Aleena’s case for weeks when McFadyen, with the help of Heather Forsyth, health critic for official opposition Wildrose party, went public 10 days ago with a plea to Horne to intervene. “I was hitting roadblock after roadblock (along with) misinformation and a lack of knowledge about the process,” said McFadyen. “We couldn’t just leave it in the hands of the minister’s office to work through quietly. So that’s why we went public.” Aleena’s plight took off on social media and the opposition parties, even St. Albert government member Stephen Khan, publicly pushed for an expedited decision. Forsyth said she was overwhelmed Monday. “The prognosis wasn’t good if she didn’t get it,” said Forsyth. “We’ve just given this little girl a whole new lease on life, and jeepers why didn’t the government do something about this (sooner).” Horne said the criticism that the government moved slowly is unfair. He said those who had to make the decision were dealing with an unapproved drug and had to make sure it was right for this patient. “I think the decision was made on a timely basis,” he said.
Officers kill bear that went into food-filled tent CALGARY — The shooting death of a bear west of Calgary is serving as a grim reminder to people not to leave food
out at campsites. On Saturday morning, a four-year-old female black bear wandered into a mesh dining tent filled with food at a campsite in a provincial recreation area. Campers and wildlife officers tried to scare the animal away, but it refused to budge. Wildlife officers say they had to destroy the bear. The people staying at the campsite were evicted and fined $172.

time and provide a range-specific path forward for the recovery of that caribou population. The Little Smoky range, which has 80 caribou, is the worst off in the province. At least 95 per cent of the herd’s range is already classified as heavily damaged by energy and forestry development, putting the animals in imminent danger of dying out. “In the Little Smoky, things are very bad,” Campbell said. “Caribou are sensitive animals and forestry, oil and gas, roads, power lines and motorized recreation are all things that they shy away from. “Deer and moose are attracted to the disturbed habitat and the wolves follow. The only thing keeping the Little Smoky caribou is a mass wolf kill by the Alberta government which is unethical because they have not to date done anything to stop the destruction of new habitat.” Research suggests that caribou avoid being within 500 metres of any disturbed area, meaning even a narrow road cuts a one-kilometre swath through the bush. Although the Little Smoky caribou have remained stable for the last six years, that’s largely because of an extensive program of killing wolves that prey on them, Campbell said.

CALGARY — The Alberta government has banned logging for one year on a range used by endangered caribou northeast of Jasper National Park. All 15 of Alberta’s caribou herds have been shrinking rapidly, mostly due to habitat destruction by energy and forestry development. The latest move is geared at allowing range plan development that will protect critical habitat and help the caribou population recover. It comes after the Alberta government put a hold on new energy leases in both the Little Smoky and neighbouring A la Peche ranges on the border of the park earlier this year. “The oil and gas deferral in Little Smoky is almost symbolic because so much has already been disturbed and so much has already been leased,” said Carolyn Campbell, a wildlife specialist with the Alberta Wilderness Association. “With the logging, though, that’s more than symbolic if you stop actual, on the ground logging. That’s why we’re encouraged. “We’re seeing decisions coming out of this government that give credibility that they actually want to take some steps to actually guarantee caribou survival.” Campbell questions why a similar ban on logging on the A la Peche range hasn’t also been announced. The federal government’s boreal woodland caribou strategy, finalized in October 2012, mandates that provinces to develop range plans for woodland caribou survival. Alberta is set to start the process for the Little Smoky and A La Peche ranges later this month. The federal strategy states that plans must describe how critical habitat will be protected to attain a minimum of 65 per cent undisturbed habitat over

Rein in pipeline rhetoric It’s understandable that Stephen Harper finds the prospect of a $12- billion Energy East TransCanada pipeline to be “very, very exciting.” For the prime minister, the pipeline means jobs and jobs mean votes in 2015, and that surely excites Harper. But for anyone watching the prime minister recently using his bully pulpit to talk up TIM the benefits of HARPER the project and sing the safety of pipelines in Quebec and New Brunswick, an obvious concern arises. How can we believe in the integrity of a “science-based” environmental study of the pipeline when Harper is not only cheerleading for the project, but has left final approval in the hands of his cabinet? It is just this type of unlevel playing field — streamlined environmental review process, political approval getting way ahead of the regulator’s appraisal, the evangelical fervour and the nation-building rhetoric from the oil industry and politicians — that galvanized opposition on the West Coast
against Harper. It is also the over-the-top political proselytizing from Harper and his key ministers, and the misreading of U.S. politics, that has thrown approval of the Keystone XL in doubt. Neither the Northern Gateway nor Keystone is dead, but the future for both is cloudy. If we are witnessing the federal government overplaying its hand on Energy East, sparking opposition from the environmental lobby, First Nations and, perhaps, Quebec, we will be watching a government go down swinging, strike one, strike two, strike three all in one mandate. We are only 20 months removed from one of the Harper government’s worst communications pratfalls, on the eve of regulatory hearings on the giant Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline proposal in British Columbia. Natural Resources Minister Joe Oliver went after “radical environmentalists” who he claimed were trying to hijack the country’s regulatory system with their ideological agenda, using “jet-setting celebrities” and “foreign special interest groups” to further their goal. Harper, before Oliver went off, told Global TV in Vancouver that there are environmentalists who would oppose any project and paid only lip service to environmental assessment and First Nations consultations. Then-environment minister Peter Kent continued the communications
fiasco by accusing charitable environmental groups in Canada of “laundering” funds from offshore donors to obstruct Canada’s environmental assessment process. Keystone is so bogged down in domestic U.S. politics that President Barack Obama is reluctant to even nominate an ambassador to Ottawa because Republicans would likely put a “hold” on his or her appointment to try to force Keystone approval. A Nebraska court will hear a case Sept. 27 in which three landowners claim the state legislature acted unconstitutionally in allowing the governor to approve the pipeline route. If they win, TransCanada could be forced to redo its entire route selection process, adding years to the project and essentially taking it out of Obama’s hands. All this after a parade of Harper ministers travelled to Washington to preach the obvious simplicity of Keystone approval, including Harper’s infamous claim that approval was a “nobrainer.” A man who wrestled over the foreign takeover of the Saskatchewan potash industry for political reasons should have been able to fathom the politics of pipeline approval by the U.S. president. Energy East does have the best prospects of the trio. Under the proposal, TransCanada would move crude from Alberta to Quebec and New Brunswick for use in
Will the Internet survive spying? Edward Snowden is safe from American “justice” for the moment, and he will certainly go down as the most effective whistle-blower in history. His revelations are going to cause a wholesale restructuring of the world’s most important communications system, the Internet. And that, rather than his whereabouts and fate, is now the real GWYNNE story. DYER On Thursday, Lavabit, a U.S.-based email service provider that promised to keep its clients’ communications private, closed down. The U.S. National Security Agency approached it about six weeks ago demanding the same access to its customers’ emails that it has already extorted from big American Internet companies like Google, Facebook, Yahoo, Amazon and Microsoft. The company’s owner, Ladar Levison, is under an NSA gag order, but he wrote to his clients: “I have been forced to make a difficult decision: to become complicit in crimes against the American people, or walk away from nearly 10 years of hard work by shutting down Lavabit. I would strongly recommend against anyone trusting their private data to a company with physical ties to the United States.” The mass surveillance being carried out by the NSA not only gives the U.S. government access to everything Americans say to one another. It also destroys everybody else’s privacy, because the standard Internet routing protocol sends messages not by the shortest route, but by whichever route is fastest and least congested. That means, in most cases, through the United States, and therefore straight into the hands of

eastern refineries and export. It can use existing pipeline capacity through Ontario, needing to build a new line only in Quebec and New Brunswick. Quebec Premier Pauline Marois would have a better chance of selling the project at home if she negotiated with Alberta Premier Alison Redford, not a flag-waving prime minister. TransCanada took out full-page newspaper ads over the weekend promising economic benefits, but also pledging to build long-term relationships with landowners, local residents, First Nation and Métis communities. TransCanada will have to learn lessons from its heavy-handed expropriation of land in the U.S. for Keystone, and it will have to learn from Enbridge which badly underestimated opposition to the Northern Gateway. The Harper Conservatives have to tamp down their giddy enthusiasm and act more as responsible stewards of the economy and environment who will actually listen to independent assessments of the project. Energy East is going up against a population that has never been more aware — or wary — of the safety and environmental dangers of pipelines and if this is sold as a fait accompli, opposition will galvanize, as it should. The Conservatives have seen it happen on the West Coast and the United States. If it happens again, they have only themselves to blame. Tim Harper is a syndicated Toronto Star national affairs columnist.

the NSA. Snowden’s revelations so far have told us about two major NSA surveillance programs, both probably illegal even under American law. The first collects the mobile phone records of over 200 million Americans. Don’t worry your pretty head about that, darling, said Senator Dianne Feinstein, chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee: “This is just metadata, there is no content involved.” The NSA isn’t actually listening to your calls. Well, of course it isn’t listening to billions of calls. Machines can’t listen to calls, and who has the manpower to do it with human beings? But machines can quickly use the call logs (metadata) to identify everybody you ever talked to, and everybody they ever talked to, and so on out to the fourth or fifth generation. If one of those thousands of people ever spoke to somebody abroad with a Muslim name (or somebody who works for Siemens, or Samsung, or some other industrial competitor of the United States), they may take an interest in you. If you’re an American who has never had direct phone contact with anybody abroad, they may then apply to access the content of your calls and emails under the Prism program. The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court that reviews such applications has refused precisely 10 of them (out of 20,919) since
2001. Besides, the content of most Americans’ messages can probably be examined without recourse to the judges under one of the blanket authorizations issued by FISC. And if you’re not American, or an American resident who once spoke to somebody abroad by phone, then you’re in a free-fire zone. If you are American, you probably don’t care about that, because you are mesmerized by the guff about a huge terrorist threat that the security barons use to justify the endless expansion of their empire (now almost a million employees). A recent opinion poll by the Pew Research Centre found that 62 per cent of Americans think “fighting terrorism” is more important than worrying about personal privacy. But if you belong to the great majority of Internet users who are not American, are not in a perpetual sweaty panic about “terrorism” and have no protection whatever under American law from the NSA’s spying, then you will want ways to avoid it. So the market, or other governments, will such create ways. What’s needed is a big investment in Internet switching capacity in countries where the spies are not completely out of control. Then non-Americans can just join one of the many servers that will spring up to meet an exploding demand for secure Internet services.

To the citizens of Lacombe: Did you know that the proposed changes to garbage collection in the City of Lacombe affect every residence? Household garbage: Residents who currently have communal alley dumpsters are facing replacement of dumpsters with individual black rollout bins, which according to the Solid Waste Roadmap (SWRM) will cost you approximately $3.50 per month per household. According to Bylaw 316, these rollouts “shall be stored within the property in such a manner as to not be unsightly in appearance.” Recycling: In order to encourage more people to recycle, the SWRM is also recommending a blue tote rollout for each residence of approximately 300-litre size, using a third party contractor for collection, at an estimated cost of $8 per month per household for weekly pickup, or $6 per month per household for biweekly pickup. As well, the SWRM states that with the introduction of blue tote rollouts, the Wolf Creek Recycle Depot could be used solely for brush and wood chips rather than household recyclables. This means that city and county residents who currently use this facility would no longer have that option. Composting: The SWRM suggests that the current “grass bins” could become “compost bins” and accept everything from yard waste to food waste. There is a concern with odour and pests should this go forward. In order to deal with the compost material, the city proposes to purchase a “HotRot” system to process the compost at an initial capital investment of $528,400. This system operates only above -15C and would be purchased from New Zealand (only two currently in use in North America). Estimated increase to utility bills is unknown at this time. Those households currently using rollouts are affected by having a garbage rollout, a recycling rollout, with it being unknown at this time as to how composting will be instituted in their areas. At the city’s barbecue on June 28, large green rollouts for composting were on display. It should be noted that the rollouts must be placed at least two metres apart for pickup, must not weigh more than 75 pounds and the bin lids must be totally closed or they will not be picked up. The SWRM also states that by having every household separate their garbage from recycling and composting, there could be a possibility of changing to biweekly pickup. Every household in the City of Lacombe is impacted by these proposed changes. If you are concerned about losing your back alley dumpster to rollouts, it is imperative that you do the survey presented by the city — either online at lacombe.ca/garbage or in hard copy, which can be picked up at the city office. Please — do the survey! The survey needs to be completed well before the end of August. The survey results will be presented with recommendations to city council at their meeting on Sept. 9, which starts at 5 p.m. Let’s be present at the meeting — your attendance is important!

Official to review Nova Scotia Mistakes lead justice system in Parsons case to needless BY THE CANADIAN PRESS HALIFAX — A former chief prosecutor in Ontario who is reviewing the Rehtaeh Parsons case says understanding the role technology played before the teenager attempted suicide will be critical in improving how Nova Scotia’s justice system handles similar cases in the future. Murray Segal was appointed Monday by the Nova Scotia government to conduct a review of the initial investigation into Parsons’ case by police and the provincial Public Prosecution Service. As part of the review, Segal said he’ll consider the impact technology is having on young people and their families, as well as their interaction with the justice system and police. “I think that’s one of the critical pieces,” Segal said Monday via telephone from Toronto at a news conference in Halifax. “I think a lot of people are struggling with the impact of technology on young people and their families and I’m hoping to learn more about that and make recommendations that may improve the justice system.” Parsons was 17 when she was taken off life-support after attempting suicide in April. Her family alleges she was sexually assaulted by four boys in November 2011 and then bullied for months after a digital photo of the alleged assault was passed around her school in Halifax.
Her case was later reopened after police said they received new information. Two 18-year-old men are due in court Thursday to face child pornographyrelated charges after they were arrested last week. Nova Scotia Justice Minister Ross Landry said adapting to ever-changing technology has been a challenge in the justice system and Segal’s review will generate a “wealth of information” that can be applied to future cases. “To accommodate those changes takes wide dialogue,” said Landry. “I’m looking from this review to give us some insight on how best to move forward in not only this case, but in other cases.” Landry said his department is ready to make changes to the justice system. “Our overall goal and objective here is to improve, not defend the status quo, but (ask) how do we improve the way we look at these issues of cyberbullying?” said Landry. Segal’s review is expected to cost $200,000 and he has until April 1 to file his final report. The government says it will later be made public. Parsons’ mother, Leah Parsons, wrote on Facebook that she remains disappointed by the justice system. “Rehtaeh was failed over and over again and this week is just a reminder of all the failures,” she wrote. The girl’s father, Glen Canning, did not return messages seeking comment.
Retired judge to assist Toronto police in use-of-force review BY THE CANADIAN PRESS TORONTO — Toronto police Chief Bill Blair says he has appointed retired justice Dennis O’Connor to assist the force in its review of all police practices, including use of force. O’Connor presided over the inquiries into Ontario’s Walkerton water tragedy and the rendition and torture of Maher Arar, a Canadian of Syrian descent. He also sat on the Ontario Court of Appeal from 1998 until last year and served as the province’s associate chief justice for more than a decade. Blair made the announcement in a news conference this afternoon, saying he’s asked O’Connor to make recommendations and examine best practices from around the world. It comes a day before representatives for the families of seven people killed in police shootings are set to call for action to prevent other fatal police encounters. The family of Sammy Yatim, 18, who died last month after being shot by police on an empty streetcar, is scheduled to be among those appearing at a news conference Tuesday.

BY THE CANADIAN PRESS HALIFAX — The head of Nova Scotia’s largest health authority is apologizing after lab mistakes earlier this year led to one patient receiving an unnecessary mastectomy and another undergoing a needless biopsy. “Mistakes happen and this is one of those very unfortunate, devastating times,” said Chris Power, president and CEO of the Capital District Health Authority, which is responsible for health care in the Halifax area and part of a neighbouring county. In late April, pathology results were switched on charts for two patients, leading to one patient needlessly losing a breast and the other not being scheduled for the necessary surgery. In the second case, which happened a month later, Power said a diagnostic biopsy was conducted on the wrong patient after slides were mislabelled with incorrect patient identification. Asked why the health authority waited nearly four months to go public with the information, Power said: “We were sensitive to (the patients’) needs and we wanted to be sure that they got through this part of their treatment and care before we made it public.” The errors affected four patients, two who were misdiagnosed with cancer and given needless treatment, and two who were mistakenly told they did not have cancer and failed to receive the treatment they required. The mistakes were detected in laboratories at the Queen Elizabeth II Health Sciences Centre in Halifax, where samples from the entire health authority are collected to be processed and analyzed. An oversight system — referred to as a quality assurance mechanism — compares all processed tissue from before and after a surgery to ensure they are the same. “What’s supposed to happen is they match,” said Power. “But in this case they didn’t and that’s when we were alerted that we have a problem here.” The health authority said in a news release it is confident it has identified the only affected patients after reviewing other tissues taken during that time period. Since the incidents, Power said Capital Health has conducted two internal reviews, reviewed standard operating procedures and investigated best practices worldwide. “As devastating as this was for our patients it’s been a hugely difficult time for our staff who were involved as well,” said Power. “Nobody wants this to happen.” Power said the introduction of bar codes later this year and an automated laboratory system in 2014 will lower the likelihood of similar mistakes happening in the future.

OTTAWA — Statistics Canada has postponed the third and final release of data from the 2011 National Household Survey, the controversial replacement for the cancelled long-form census. The release — originally scheduled for Wednesday — will instead take place Sept. 11, said Statistics Canada census chief Marc Hamel. “We always perform quality checks up until the last minute on all of our data outputs, and in
the course of doing these normal procedures over the weekend, we noticed some issues in some of the data we were looking at,” Hamel said. “We have a couple of formulas that were not correctly applied, and it’s impacting a number of the results. So we will need to re-run the tables that we had planned for the release.”

Yatim’s death sparked public outrage after it was captured on surveillance and cellphone videos in which nine shots can be heard. The Special Investigations Unit is looking into the circumstances of Yatim’s death and Blair has said he would be conducting a separate probe to see if police procedures and training were followed. Const. James Forcillo has been suspended and the Toronto Police Association president has urged the public not to jump to conclusions. Following Yatim’s death, Blair said he understood the public had many questions about police conduct. “I recognize that there is a need for answers and that the public quite rightfully expects that the matter will be thoroughly investigated. I want to assure you all that this will be done,” he said at the time. “The public also has a right to demand that the Toronto Police Service examine the conduct of its officers to ensure that its training and procedures are both appropriate and followed. This will be done.” Ontario’s ombudsman has also launched an investigation, probing what kind of direction the provincial government provides to police for defusing conflict situations.

VERIZON’S ENTRY COULD HIT WIRELESS STOCKS FOR SEVERAL YEARS TORONTO — If Verizon enters the Canadian market it could hit the stock prices of domestic carriers for several years until the actual market impact of the U.S. telecom giant becomes known, says RBC Capital Markets analyst Drew McReynolds. Bell (TSX:BCE), Rogers (TSX:RCI.B) and Telus (TSX:T) have already seen their share prices impacted by the possibility that Verizon will enter Canada as the country’s fourth major wireless player, McReynolds said in a research note. “Although we believe the pullback in BCE, Rogers and Telus offers a potential buying opportunity for more risk-tolerant investors should Verizon not enter Canada, we see another leg down for the wireless stocks should Verizon enter,” he said. “Furthermore, we see the persistence of a major overhang on the group in this scenario for potentially several years until visibility on Verizon’s actual market impact emerges.” BCE’s chief executive George Cope recently said that Bell, Rogers and Telus have taken a cumulative hit of $15 billion on the capital markets since the news about Verizon’s possible entry broke. McReynolds is recommending investors move to invest in regional wireless companies Cogeco Cable (TSX:CCA), Quebecor Inc. (TSX:QBR.B) and Manitoba Telecom (TSX:MTS) to lessen risk. “Our bias is toward the regional operators until wireless visibility improves.” Verizon hasn’t confirmed whether it’s entering Canada’s domestic cellphone market, but there have been reports the U.S. giant is interested in buying new wireless companies Wind Mobile and Mobilicity, which have about 900,000 subscribers between them. — The Canadian Press

Emmanuel David, corporate executive chef at Boulevard Restaurant & Lounge in Holiday Inn and Suites Gasoline Alley, has created a wings-only menu with non-traditional flavours and suggested beer pairings for each.
Emmanuel David has cooked for royalty and earned medals at culinary competitions around the world. So it might surprise some that the corporate executive chef at Red Deer’s Boulevard Restaurant and Lounge has been focusing on chicken wings in recent weeks — that is until they see what he’s doing with poultry appendages. Tequila and juniper marinated wings, Mediterranean stuffed wings, habanera glazed chipotle wings and mild coconut crusted lollipop wings are among the offerings on Boulevard’s new chicken wing menu. There’s also spicy peanut butter and jelly wings, root beer barbecue wings and even poutine wings — complete with fries, cheese curds and gravy. “Who knew what you could do with chicken wings, the unlimited potential of chicken wings?” said David. Boulevard’s chicken wing menu, which has been available for about two weeks, includes 20 flavours. Some are grilled, others roasted and still others fried. Several are stuffed, with the bone removed and replaced with ingredients like ground chicken, shrimp, mushrooms and vermicelli noodles, in the case of Thai-style stuffed wings. “We really took a lot of time in developing and perfecting these recipes,” said David, adding that the process required about a month of kitchen work. While many restaurants and
pubs throw frozen wings into a deep-fryer, Boulevard works from scratch with whole fresh chicken wings. David makes many of his own ingredients, such as a scotch bonnet pepper sauce for his Grenadian invasion hot wings. “It’s hotter than habanera,” he said. “But it’s not only hot, it’s very, very flavourful.” Boulevard’s chicken wing menu even suggests an appropriate beer for each flavour of wing, such as Japanese Sapporo with its teriyaki glazed wings. In most instances, David has chosen regional beers from the likes of Edmonton’s Alley Kat Brewing Co., Calgary’s Wild Rose Brewery and Canmore’s Grizzly Paw Brewing Co. He plans to offer a modified wing menu at Boulevard every summer, keeping the most popular flavours and introducing new options. He doesn’t anticipate problems finding fresh alternatives. “To be honest with you, when I started I had 50 different flavours in mind.” Born and raised in Granada, West Indies, David came to Canada in 1977. He’s worked at a number of high-end restaurants and hotels, including the New Ramada Renaissance Hotel in Regina, where he prepared a state dinner for Queen Elizabeth II in 1987. David has overseen the kitchen at Boulevard, which is located in the Holiday Inn and Suites Gasoline Alley, for the past two years. hrichards@reddeeradvocate. com
New complex pushes permits to $17M in July UP FROM $14M AT SAME TIME LAST YEAR Approval for the final phase of Medican’s Sierra Michener Hill complex helped push the City of Red Deer’s building permit tally for July to just under $18 million. The 56-unit condominium, which will join 52-unit and 40-unit phases already built by Medican next to Extendicare Canada’s assisted living facility on Michener Hill, is valued at more than $5.1 million. That made up much of the $8.9 million in residential construction work approved by the city last month. Permits in the industrial category added another $6.5 million during July, with a release issued by the city attributing a big chunk of that figure to development in Queens Industrial Park. Commercial projects contributed $2.6 million, and work on public buildings added $20,000. The combined $17.9 million worth of building permits was up from $14.6 million for the same period in 2012. Last year’s total included $7.1 million in the residential category, $894,000 for industrial work, $6.5 million for commercial projects and $130,000 under the public classification. From January to July of this year, the city issued permits for $152.9 million worth of construction work, up from $142.1 for the same seven-month period in 2012. Residential approvals increased to $82.4 million

Medican has received building permit approval for the final 56-unit phase of its Sierra Michener Hill condominium complex. from $77.5 million, industrial permits to $31.7 million from $10.1 million and public permits to $37.5 million from $7.9 million, while the commercial total fell to $21.3 million from $46.6 million.
CIBC trying to retain half of Aerogold customers AFTER AEROPLAN OPERATOR PICKS TD FOR PROGRAM BY THE CANADIAN PRESS CIBC says it is willing to let TD Bank become the primary credit card issuer for the Aeroplan loyalty rewards program, as long as it’s allowed to keep half of the current Aerogold customers. The two rival banks and Aeroplan operator Aimia Inc. (TSX:AIM) have agreed to continue talks and are aiming to have a definitive compromise by Aug. 26, about 2 ½ weeks after an Aug. 9 deadline for CIBC to match TD’s offer. CIBC (TSX:CM) said Monday that it’s willing to have TD buy the half of the Aerogold portfolio whose clients only have credit cards to collect extra miles. A complete shift to TD would mark the end of a two-decade relationship between Aimia and CIBC. Aeroplan, which originated as Air Canada’s frequent flyer program, is now part of a broader international loyalty system operated by Aimia. CIBC has said previously the proposed deal between Aimia and TD Bank (TSX:TD) fails to honour the existing 10-year credit card agreement which expires Dec. 31. CIBC argues that Aimia’s deal with TD was structured in a way that “nullifies CIBC’s right of first refusal and ability to match.”
Sierra Michener Hill has been under construction since late 2009. In addition to the condominiums, the project consists of 38 duplex villas. Both are restricted to buyers 40 and older.
Blackberry weighs option of a sale as operations review gets underway BY THE CANADIAN PRESS
“In the event an agreement is not reached, CIBC retains its rights to exercise its legal options under the provisions of its existing contract with Aimia,” CIBC said in a news release Monday. Montreal-based Aimia says CIBC’s assertion is “without merit” and it is prepared to “vigorously defend” itself from any claim made by CIBC. However, it said the three parties will “work vigorously to try to reach an agreement, complete due diligence and finalize definitive documentation” within two weeks. “We are delighted to confirm TD as our new financial credit card partner,” said Aimia CEO Rupert Duchesne. “TD is a leading financial institution with a strong Canadian retail and global banking franchise that shares our customer-centric vision for Aeroplan and that is committed to building the program with us. “We are confident that the strength of the transformed Aeroplan program will drive increased engagement and market share among premium Canadian consumers.” The company said CIBC cardholders can continue to earn miles for the remainder of the year and that all Aeroplan miles are deposited into their accounts regardless which of the credit cards is used.
Hopes of BlackBerry returning to its glory days have all but disappeared as the smartphone company delivered the most damning proof that its new phones are a sales flop by moving forward with a plan that could result in the sale of its operations. The board of directors at the Waterloo, Ont.-based company launched a review of “strategic alternatives” on Monday, a move which it says could also potentially take BlackBerry in other directions, such as a partnership or joint venture. Regardless of the outcome, the company’s future is uncertain. BlackBerry could be scooped up by an interested buyer or even go private — an idea that has gained favour after reports said the board has recently opened to that option, even though it wasn’t specifically mentioned in the announcement. Whichever path BlackBerry takes, the role of Fairfax Financial chief executive Prem Watsa is almost a certainty. The head of Canadian insurance company Fairfax resigned from the BlackBerry board on Monday due to potential conflicts with the review process. The move suggests with near certainty that Watsa expects Fairfax will play a crucial role in the future direction of the company. Watsa joined the board in early 2012 as part of attempts to revitalize BlackBerry, then called Research In Motion, and he has since increased his stake to about 10 per cent of the company. “I continue to be a strong supporter of the company, the board and management as they move forward during this process,” he said in a statement issued by BlackBerry.

The S&P/TSX composite index gained 52.14 points to 12,594.27. The Canadian dollar was off 0.08 of a cent to 97.06. Shares of BlackBerry (TSX:BB) rose $1.08 to $11.13 as the struggling Waterloo, Ont.-based company said it’s weighing its options and has brought in a committee to assess strategic alternatives, which could include its sale or entering into a joint venture. The stock hit an intraday high of $11.25, which is still well below its 52-week record of $18.49. BlackBerry’s strategic review will be headed by Timothy Dattels, who joined BlackBerry’s board last year and is a senior partner at TPG Capital, one of the world’s largest private equity firms. The announcement comes amid unconfirmed reports that the company may go private — a move that could result in one or more investors buying out other shareholders and delisting the stock. Meanwhile, the gold sector on the TSX was the highest advancer, rising 5.35 per cent, as gold prices continued to climb on gains from last week. The December bullion contract rose $22 to US$1,334.20 an ounce. The materials sector also saw a notable lift, going up 4.23 per cent. Metals and mining was up 2.53 per cent, as September copper was up three cents at US$3.30 a pound. The energy sector slid 0.42 per cent as the September crude contract on the New York Mercantile Exchange saw an uptick of 14 cents to US$106.11 a barrel. South of the border, U.S. indexes were mixed as the Dow Jones industrials fell 5.83 points to 15,419.68 and the S&P 500 index was 1.95 points lower at 1,689.47. The Nasdaq climbed 9.84 points to 3,669.95, boosted by a rise in Apple Inc. shares after a blog reported the tech company will release its latest iPhone in September. The U.S. Treasury Department reported that it registered a $97.6 billion deficit for July but said it still remains on track to post its lowest annual budget gap in five years. July’s figure raises the deficit for the 2013 budget year to $607.4 billion so far — 37.6 per cent below the $973.8 billion

The government said steady economic growth, higher taxes, lower government spending and increased dividends from mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have helped shrink the deficit. Craig Fehr, a Canadian market strategist with Edward Jones in St. Louis, Mo., said the release of major economic news is winding down for the rest of the summer. “We’re right in the middle of the dog days of summer,” said Fehr. “Everyone kind of returns from holidays in September to resharpen their pencils. As we look at the markets this week, and more importantly not just this week, volatility is likely to start picking back up.” Fehr said investors will likely take a wait-and-see attitude to what will come in September, particularly if the Fed decides to move on tapering its $85-billion-a-month bond-buyback program. “We have all these things coming in the fall that will likely capture the markets’ attention,” he said. Investors are also anticipating the results of the latest U.S. retail sales figures for July, which will be released Tuesday. How much people are spending can be a key indicator of how stable the economy has become and where it is headed in the near future. Consumers’ confidence is closely watched because their spending accounts for 70 per cent of economic growth in the U.S. In other developments, rewards point operator Aimia Inc. (TSX:AIM) said it has selected TD Bank Group (TSX:TD) as the new primary credit card issuer for Aeroplan. The company says talks regarding a side deal with its longtime partner CIBC (TSX:CM) are ongoing. Aimia shares gained more than four per cent to $15.93 while TD fell 25 cents to $86.41. CIBC was $1.56 higher to $78.47. Aimia is scheduled to release their latest earnings report later Monday. Dollarama Inc. (TSX:DOL) says its chief operating officer is leaving the company to become president and CEO of a California-based discount retailer called 99-cents Only Stores. Chief operating officer Stephane Gonthier will remain with the Montreal-based company for a time to ensure a smooth transition. The company’s shares were down almost $1.84 to $75.99.

TransCanada reaches settlement with shippers THE CANADIAN PRESS CALGARY — TransCanada Corp. (TSX:TRP) says it has reached a settlement with shippers on the 2013 and 2014 annual revenue requirement for its NGTL gas system pipeline. The deal, through wholly-owned subsidiary NOVA Gas Transmission Ltd., fixes operating, maintenance and administration costs at $190 million for
2013 and $198 million for 2014. The Calgary company also says it has filed an application with the National Energy Board for approval of the settlement and final 2013 rates, as well as changes to existing interim rates to reflect the settlement. TransCanada is a natural gas and oil pipeline company, which also manages power generation and gas storage facilities.
BP sues U.S. gov. over decision to bar company from new contracts THE ASSOCIATED PRESS HOUSTON — BP on Monday sued the U.S. government over a decision to bar the oil giant from getting new federal contracts to supply fuel and other services after the company pleaded guilty to manslaughter and other criminal charges related to the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill. BP is seeking an injunction that would lift an order by the Environmental Protection Agency that suspends the company from such contracts. The Houston Chronicle reported that the suspension by the EPA was first issued in November 2012 and it only affects new federal contracts and not existing ones. The company was
ineligible for new contracts worth up to $1.9 billion to provide fuel to the federal government this year because of the suspension. BP has been a major supplier of fuel to the U.S. military. The newspaper reported the company said in court papers filed in Houston federal court that the EPA’s decision to suspend the company from such contracts and its continued enforcement of that order is arbitrary, capricious and “an abuse of discretion.” BP said in its court filing that the EPA order, which includes 21 different BP entities, was continued by the agency just last month after BP lost an administrative challenge to the suspension. An EPA spokesman declined to comment on BP’s court action, referring questions to the Jus-
tice Department, which also declined to comment. The well blowout that caused the spill killed 11 workers on the Deepwater Horizon oil rig and led to millions of gallons (litres) of oil spewing into the Gulf. BP agreed in November to plead guilty to charges involving the workers’ deaths and for lying to Congress about the size of the spill from its broken well, which spewed more than 200 million gallons (757 million litres) of oil. Much of it ended up in the Gulf and soiled the shorelines of several states. A federal judge in New Orleans in January accepted BP’s guilty plea, which also included the company paying a record $4 billion in penalties.
BLACKBERRY: No intentions of selling shares “Fairfax Financial has no current intention of selling its shares.” BlackBerry shares rose nearly 11 per cent, or $1.08, to close at $11.13 on the Toronto Stock Exchange, which is about $8 below the high in January when the stock was boosted by optimism for its BlackBerry 10 smartphones. In some ways, BlackBerry has been here before, with its future teetering on uncertainty, but the stakes are different this time around. BlackBerry launched a softer review of its “strategic business model alternatives” in May 2012, which some analysts had expected would turn into a sale of certain assets. That never materialized and the company went on to launch its new line of phones. Since then, the new high-end Blackberry 10 devices have struggled to gain favour in the highly competitive smartphone market dominated by Apple’s iPhone and the Android devices. In the United States, the phones were considered a dud almost as quickly as they hit shelves and other regions, such as Canada and the United Kingdom, delivered lukewarm sales figures. BlackBerry reached a crossroads last month when its new BlackBerry Q5, a cheaper version of the latest devices, arrived in stores to a tepid response. The phone was seen as a way to appeal to consumers who weren’t shopping for a high-end device, but it was met with both underwhelming reviews and sales figures anecdotally that fell short of expectations. Official sales data isn’t release by the company. It seems that nearly everywhere BlackBerry turns, the confidence in its future has faded, and even with a potential sale of its operations ahead of it, some observers still aren’t hopeful. “I think there is likely no bright future for Blackberry,” said Bernstein analyst Pierre Ferragu, in an email from the U.K. His firm has long been pessimistic about the company’s stock price. “Their technology isn’t differentiated anymore, which means consumers won’t switch to them and larger players won’t buy them out for that. Chinese vendors or a Microsoft could at some point be interested in buying what’s left of their user base — especially corporate clients and the brand —but that wouldn’t be at a premium of today’s stock price.” Other than that, the list of potential acquirers is short — with big players like Google and Apple out of the question — which makes it likely that a team of private equity players will make a move. The company’s strategic review will be headed by Timothy Dattels, who joined BlackBerry’s board last year and is a senior partner at TPG Capital, one of the world’s largest private equity firms. “Given the importance and strength of our technology, and the evolving industry and competitive landscape, we believe that now is the right time to explore strategic alternatives,” Dattel said in a statement. BlackBerry founder Mike Lazaridis will also likely be involved, as he still owns 5.7 per cent of the company’s outstanding shares. The biggest challenge is rallying enough large private equity partners who share a similar vision, and would be willing to fork over a huge chunk of money for a company teetering on an uncertain future. Questions will be raised about which pieces of the BlackBerry’s operations could generate the most revenues, a factor which garnered plenty of attention in mid-2011 when the company first began to see its smartphone device marketshare tilt drastically lower. QNX Software Systems, which BlackBerry acquired three years ago, has become a significant part of its business, playing a major role in the development of BlackBerry 10, as well as future technologies that integrate the operating system with automobiles. BlackBerry also owns a wide array of patents, estimated somewhere in the range of 10,000 to 15,000, that cover advanced wireless technology, security, enterprise mobility and software. “We don’t foresee any scenarios where the value of the company will be significantly larger,” said Tim Long, an analyst at the Bank of Montreal, in a note. “While a change in structure could result in a higher stock price in the near term, we do not envision any changes that would help Blackberry reverse the significant smartphone
CIBC: A wider range of options Aimia announced the credit card change before reporting a secondquarter net loss of $415.2 million or $2.43 per share, compared to $35 million or 19 cents per share a year ago. The company said a change in the breakage estimate for the Aeroplan program resulted in a $663.6 million hit to revenue. Excluding the change in the breakage estimate and several other items, revenue for the quarter was $540.3 million, up from $7.1 million a year ago. TD, parent of TD Canada Trust as well as a U.S. retail banking network, said it will offer Aeroplan customers more choice and grow its premium travel segment. “The co-branded Aeroplan credit cards will complement TD’s already strong lineup of cards, and allow our customers to select from an even wider range of options for earning great travel rewards,” said Michael Rhodes, executive vice-president of the company’s North American credit card division. With TD, Aeroplan Visa holders would be able to select from three levels of credit cards — enhanced premium, premium and mid-market — each with different benefits and mile earn rates. TD said it expects to provide a credit card for U.S. residents and a credit card for Canadian small business owners. TD has said the Aeroplan arrangement would not have a material impact on its 2014 earnings but would make “a solid contribution to 2015 earnings.” The deal calls for TD to make a $100-million up front payment to Aimia in 2014. John Aiken of Barclays Capital described CIBC’s offer to sell customers who only have Aerogold credit cards to TD a “common sense” approach that should benefit both Canadian banks. “We believe that this should defray some of the retention costs anticipated to be incurred by CIBC as it can focus on retaining the customers it has a more fulsome relationship with,” he wrote in a report. “For TD, it alleviates some of the risk that current Aeroplan cardholders will move to an alternative platform as it will likely make the transition much more seamless.” Aiken doesn’t believe the sale will reap a significant premium because TD likely believes it can successfully convince those Aeroplan Visa customers to switch providers. CIBC hasn’t disclosed the number of cardholders or the outstanding balances associated with its Aeroplan card. “While we view the potential sale of this 50 per cent of the portfolio as an incremental positive, given that the likelihood of retention would have been a challenge, CIBC is still faced with the $50 million expenditure to develop the new card offering, with additional marketing and retention costs after the new cards are issued,” said Aiken. “As well, the lost revenues from the potential portfolio sale will still weigh on the bottom line.” Drew McReynolds of RBC Capital Markets added there would be “considerable uncertainty” about the outlook for Aeroplan if there is a prolonged legal battle. The switch to TD will re-position Aeroplan for renewed growth over the medium term, but he said transition risk remains until terms of the potential deal among the three parties are announced. Brad Smith of Stonecap Securities said the outcome of the dispute “remains cloudy” despite CIBC’s willingness to sell customers with only Aerogold cards. “While we appreciate management’s efforts to retain as many card customer relationships as possible ... we would not place a high probability on a successful outcome given that access to the multi-product customer data was likely a major focus for TD in negotiating their agreement with Aimia,” he wrote in a report. He said the kerfuffle between CIBC and Aimia underscores how slowing domestic spending is escalating competition among Canada’s leading banks. On the Toronto Stock Exchange, Aimia’s shares closed up more than four per cent, gaining 63 cents to $15.93 in Monday trading. CIBC shares were up $1.56 to $78.47 while TD stock lost 25 cents to $86.41.

Sinkhole swallows Florida resort BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS CLERMONT, Fla. — It sounded like a thunderstorm as windows broke and the ground shook, but vacationers who were awakened from their rooms at a villa near Orlando, Fla., soon realized that the building was starting to collapse — parts of it swallowed by a 100-foot sinkhole that also endangered two neighbouring resort buildings. By early Monday, nearly a third of the structure at Summer Bay Resort had collapsed. All 105 guests staying in the villa were evacuated, as were those in the neighbouring buildings. No injuries were reported. The villa, with 24 three-story units, was reported as a total loss. Inspectors remained on the scene Monday afternoon to determine whether the other two buildings near the sinkhole — a common occurrence in Florida — would be safe to re-enter. The first sign of trouble came about 10:30 p.m. Sunday. Security guard Richard Shanley had just started his shift, and he heard what sounded like shouting from a building. A guest flagged him down to report that a window had blown out. Shanley reported it to management, and another window popped. The resort’s staff decided to evacuate the villa. Shanley said the building seemed to sink by 10 to 20 inches and bannisters began to fall off the building as he ran up and down three floors trying to wake up guests. One couple with a baby on the third floor couldn’t get their door open and had to break a window to get out, he said. “It’s a scary situation,” Shanley said, and guests credited him with saving
lives by knocking on doors to awaken them. Inside, they heard what sounded like thunder and then the storm of water, as if it were a storm. Evacuation took about 10 to 15 minutes, according to staff and witnesses. Amy Jedele heard screams coming from one of the adjacent buildings around 10:30 p.m., and several minutes later, the sounds of sirens. She and her fiance, Darren Gade, went outside. “That’s when you could hear the pops and the metal, the concrete and the glass breaking,” she said. The first portions of the building to sink were the walkways and the elevator shaft, Gade said. “You could see the ground falling away from the building where the building started leaning,” Gade said. “People were in shock to see a structure of that size just sink into the ground slowly. ... You could see the stress fractures up the side of the structure getting wider.” Then, as a part of the leaning building crumbled quickly into the ground, dust shot up around the site, amateur video of the collapse shows (http://bit. ly/1cuOc1u ). In one of the adjacent buildings, firefighters and police officers knocking on doors woke up Maggie Moreno of San Antonio. She couldn’t fully open the door to her unit. “It sounded like popcorn,” said Moreno, who was visiting with her husband, daughter and two grandchildren. “The building was just snapping.” Luis Perez also was staying at a nearby building. He said he was in his room when the lights went off around 11:30 p.m. He said he was on his way to the front desk to report it when he saw

Damage to buildings caused by a sinkhole 40 to 50 feet in diameter is seen at the Summer Bay Resort, Monday, in Clermont, Fla. Lake County Fire Rescue Battalion Chief Tony Cuellar says about 30 percent of the three-story structure at Summer Bay Resort collapsed around 3 o’clock this morning. Another section was sinking. firefighters and police outside. “I started walking toward where they were at, and you could see the building leaning, and you could see a big crack at the base of the building,” said Perez, 54, of New Jersey. Over the next five hours, sections of the building sank into the ground. Paul Caldwell, the development’s president, said the resort gave all affected guests other rooms. Some visitors — many of whom had to leave their wallets, purses and other
belongings behind in the quick evacuation — were given cash advances by Summer Bay. The Red Cross also distributed food, clothing and medicines to vacationers who had lost their belongings in their resort rooms. There were no signs before Sunday that a sinkhole was developing, Caldwell said. He said the resort underwent geological testing when it was built about 15 years ago, showing the ground to be stable.
Biden throwing hat in the ring for 2016 run BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON — Joe Biden is keeping his name at the top of likely Democratic contenders for the 2016 presidential election — even while the prime spot seems to have been claimed by former Secretary of State Hilary Rodham Clinton. As a two-term sitting vice-president, Senate veteran and Democratic Party luminary, Biden in any other year would have the right of first refusal for the Democratic nomination. This time, though, Biden’s decision and prospects are both irrefutably colored by Clinton, who a growing num-
ber of Democratic groups are hyping as President Barack Obama’s heir apparent as they seek to recruit her to join the race. So although Biden and other Democrats are looking to Clinton before they decide how to proceed, the vice-president is signalling that nobody should count him out just yet. With three years to go until next presidential election, Biden is polishing his connections and racking up favours in states key to winning the party’s nomination. Now 70, Biden would be one of the oldest presidential candidates in history if he decides to run. He has a crowded schedule of campaign events to boost Democrats run-
ning in mid-term elections this November. Many of those stops are in states that will be critical in the state-by-state Democratic primary process. Biden’s advisers and friends say those events reflect his role as vicepresident and a party leader, not some grand strategy to lay the groundwork for a presidential campaign he hasn’t yet decided to undertake. But Democratic activists and donors say the signals are all too clear when a two-time presidential candidate who is openly entertaining a third run makes the trek to early primary states. “He’s doing the smart thing ... He’s letting folks know he’s interested,” said Dick Harpootlian, who chaired the
South Carolina Democratic Party until earlier this year. He described the stops as a chance to “meet all the major players in the Democratic primary process, in one room, in one night.” That Biden is still interested in the top job is far from a secret, and in his current office, the writing is on the wall. “I have two portraits hanging: one of (Thomas) Jefferson, one of (John) Adams. Both vice-presidents who became presidents,” Biden told GQ last month, noting the former presidents’ self-satisfied expressions. “I joke to myself, I wonder what their portraits looked like when they were vice-presidents.”

No-cook cooking FOUR COURSES, NO SWEAT BY TONY ROSENFELD ADVOCATE NEWS SERVICES An invitation to dine entails a pact of sorts. You, the host, offer to properly nourish your guests; they, lucky
things things, get to show up and adore you for your labors. Nowhere in this social contract does it say you, the host, need to work up a sweat. Here’s a summer menu that’s sufficiently impressive without requiring any actual cooking, meaning no heating up the kitchen. Start with a smoked trout pate. Creme fraiche and cream cheese give the spread its req-
Blueberry and Lemon-Cream Icebox Cake
Smoked Trout Pate With Creme Fraiche and Dill Cucumber Strips
8 to 10 servings Ingredients 2 pints fresh blueberries, stemmed and rinsed 1/2 cup Lyle’s Golden Syrup (available at larger grocery stores, on the baking aisle) Finely grated zest and juice of 1 lemon 12 ounces mascarpone cheese 1/4 cup granulated sugar 2 cups chilled heavy cream 8 ounces graham crackers Confectioners’ sugar, for serving Steps Puree the blueberries in a food processor until smooth. Use a flexible spatula to push the puree through a fine-mesh strainer, pressing to extract as much as possible from the solids (discard them). There should be about 2 cups of strained puree. Return it to the food processor, along with the syrup and 2 tablespoons of the lemon juice, and blend until well incorporated. Reserve 1 cup as a sauce for serving; cover and refrigerate it. Add the mascarpone to the remaining blueberry mixture (in the food processor) and blend until the mixture becomes uniform and smooth. Combine the lemon zest, granulated sugar and heavy cream in the bowl of a stand mixer or hand-held electric mixer. Beat on low speed for about 1 minute, then on medium-high speed for about 2 minutes or until stiff peaks form. Use parchment paper to line the bottom and sides of the loaf pan (an initial light coating of cooking oil spray may help). Use an offset spatula to spread half of the blueberry-mascarpone mixture evenly in the bottom. Cover completely with the graham crackers, making a single layer that uses about one-quarter of the crackers; breaking them as needed. Next, use the spatula to spread half of the

lemon whipped cream evenly over the graham cracker layer, then repeat with another graham cracker layer, the remaining blueberry mascarpone mixture, a graham cracker layer, the remaining lemon whipped cream and a final graham cracker layer. Compress very gently; the assembled cake should come to the top of the pan. Wrap in plastic wrap and weight with a heavy plate or pan. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours and up to a day in advance. To serve, remove the weight and plastic wrap. Place a platter over the pan, then use both hands to invert the cake so it lands on the platter. Gently peel away the parchment paper and discard it. Whisk the reserved cup of blueberry puree so it becomes smooth and pourable. Drizzle some over each slice of cake, then sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar. Serve right away.

Stir in the scallions and mint, and set in the refrigerator to chill for at least 1 hour and up to 1 day; taste for salt, pepper and lemon juice after refrigerating (and before serving). For the salad: Combine the crab, corn, Scotch bonnet or habanero pepper, lime juice, sugar, salt and pepper in a mixing bowl; let the mixture sit for 10 minutes, giving it a gentle toss or two during that time. Stir in the cilantro and oil; taste, and adjust the seasoning as needed. Divide the soup among individual bowls. Spoon equal portions of the crab-corn mixture onto the center of each bowl.

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt Crusty baguette, cut crosswise into thin slices, or crackers, for serving Steps For the pate: Flake the trout into a food processor; pulse to chop. Add the creme fraiche, cream cheese, lemon juice, mustard, Tabasco and black pepper. Pulse until smooth. Transfer to a container.

For the cucumber: Trim, then peel the cucumber, preferably using a Y-shaped peeler. Applying greater pressure, use the peeler to shave wide strips into a mixing bowl until you reach the cucumber’s seed core, which can be reserved for a separate use. Add the vinegar, the tablespoon of dill and the salt, tossing gently to incorporate. To serve, spread a generous schmear of pate on the bread or crackers. Top with a few ribbons of the cucumber and dill.
Italian Chicken Salad With Fennel, White Beans and Heirloom Tomato Aspic 8 servings Ingredients For the aspic 2 1/2 pounds ripe heirloom tomatoes About 2 1/2 tablespoons (3 envelopes) unflavored gelatin 1/4 cup very hot water 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt 1 teaspoon chopped thyme leaves 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes For the salad One 3-pound rotisserie chicken 28 ounces canned, no-salt-added cannellini beans, rinsed and drained 1 small bulb fennel, quartered, cored and very thinly sliced (about 1 1/2 cups) 6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling 1/4 cup red wine vinegar 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice 3 ounces baby arugula (about 4 cups) 3/4 cup Parmigiano-Reggiano shavings (made using a peeler), plus more for garnish 12 leaves basil, torn, plus more for garnish Kosher salt Freshly ground black pepper Steps For the aspic: Lightly grease eight 4-ounce ramekins with cooking oil spray. Seed one of the tomatoes, letting the seeds, gel and liquid fall into the bowl of the food processor. Finely dice the flesh to yield 1/2 cup; transfer to a small bowl. Cut the remainder of the seeded tomato and the remaining whole tomatoes into 1-inch chunks and add to the food processor. Process until completely pureed, about 1 minute. Strain into a 1-quart liquid measuring cup through a fine-mesh strainer, using a flexible spatula to press through as much of the juice as possible; discard any solids in the strainer. You’ll need 23/4 cups of juice; reserve any extra for another use (such as a gazpacho or vinaigrette). If you don’t have enough juice, add water to yield a total of 2 3/4 cups. Transfer a generous 1/2 cup of the juice to a very wide, shallow bowl. (You need a large surface area.) Sprinkle the gelatin evenly onto the juice, letting it sit on the surface. After 10 minutes, add the hottest possible tap water and stir until the gelatin has dissolved and the mixture is thick yet not lumpy. Add it to the remaining 2 1/4 cups of tomato juice in the measuring cup, stirring to incorporate completely. Add the reserved 1/2 cup of diced tomato, along with the vinegar, salt, thyme and crushed red pepper flakes. Pour equal amounts of the aspic mixture into each ramekin. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until the aspic sets, at least 4 hours and up to 2 days. For the salad: Discard the skin, bones and
all visible fat from the chicken. Cut the remaining meat into 1/2-inch pieces, placing them in a large serving bowl as you work. The yield is about 6 cups. Add the beans, fennel, oil, vinegar and lemon juice, and toss well to incorporate. Let the salad sit for 5 minutes, so the fennel begins to soften and the chicken picks up the flavor of the dressing. Add the arugula, Parmigiano-Reggiano and basil, and toss well. Taste, and add salt and pepper as needed. To serve, dip a paring knife into hot water, then run it around the inside edge of each ramekin. Invert the aspic onto individual plates. Mound the chicken salad around or next to the aspic, and garnish with additional cheese and basil.

20 condors poisoned with insecticide in Chilean Andes SANTIAGO, Chile — Twenty condors were apparently poisoned with insecticide in the Chilean Andes cordillera and two of the giant birds have died, officials said Monday. Condors have wingspans of up to 10 feet (3 metres) and can glide on air currents for hours. But on Sunday they began crashing into the rocks high in the mountains near a hydroelectric plant. Chilean officials and volunteers rescued 17 that were foaming from the beak and were too frail to fly. Another sick condor and two dead ones were found Monday. They were all taken to a veterinary clinic in the city of Los Andes, some 40 miles (70 kilometres) east of the capital, Santiago. “The hypothesis is that they suffered organophosphate poisoning after they were exposed to insecticides used for agriculture,” veterinarian Eric Savard, who has been treating them, told The Associated Press. The 18 survivors are recovering with an antidote, antibiotics and saline solution, Savard said. They will remain under intensive care for 10 days. When they gain strength, the birds will be taken to Santiago’s Metropolitan Zoo for further care and then released in the same place where they were found, Pablo Vergara, regional director of Chile’s agriculture and livestock service, told local media. Vergara said two dead foxes and a dead cow were discovered in the same area. Officials have sent samples to a laboratory for testing. They say the vultures could have eaten poisoned meat or drunk water contaminated with insecticides. The Andean condor is one of the largest flying birds in the world. Biologists estimate only a few thousand are in the wild.
Judge tells U.S. quarter horse group to begin registering clones
Hyperloop hoping to become reality BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LOS ANGELES — Imagine strapping into a car-sized capsule and hurtling through a tube at more than 700 mph (1,126 kph) — not for the thrill of it, but to get where you need to go. On Monday, billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk unveiled a transportation concept that he said could whisk passengers the nearly 400 miles (643 kilometres) between Los Angeles and San Francisco in 30 minutes — half the time it takes an airplane. If it’s ever built. His “Hyperloop” system for travel between major cities is akin to the pneumatic tubes that transport capsules stuffed with paperwork in older buildings. In this case, the cargo would be people, reclining for a ride that would start with a force of acceleration like an airplane but then be turbulence free. Capsules would catapult through a large, nearly air-free tube. Inside, they would be pulled down the line by magnetic attraction. Each capsule would float on a cushion of air it creates — like an air hockey table in which the puck produces the air instead of the surface. To minimize friction, a powerful fan at the front would suck what air is in the tube to the rear. “Short of figuring out real teleportation, which would of course be awesome (someone please do this), the only option for super fast travel is to build a tube over or
LUBBOCK, Texas — The pre-eminent U.S. quarter horse organization must begin allowing cloned animals to be added to its prestigious registry, a federal judge decided Monday. The judge issued an injunction against the American Quarter Horse Association and its prohibition of cloned horses, and their offspring, from its registry. The registry adds financial value to listed animals. Two Texas ranchers had successfully sued the 280,000-member association, saying it was operating a monopoly by not allowing cloned horses. Jurors sided with the ranchers last month, ruling that association was violating antitrust laws, but the association — which has vowed to appeal — wasn’t immediately ordered to change its policy. U.S. District Judge Mary Lou Robinson announced the injunction during court Monday. It will take effect 30 days after she signs it, which may happen later this week. The decision could set a precedent because no American horse breeding groups currently allow cloned horses to be registered. “We’re thrilled. We’re just thrilled,” said Nancy Stone, the ranchers’ attorney. “It is definitely time.” She said members have been asking that the rules be changed since late 2007, but she acknowledged that less than a half dozen members have actually requested the change.

An image released by Tesla Motors, is a sketch of the Hyperloop capsule with passengers onboard. Billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk, on Monday, unveiled a concept for a transport system he says would make the nearly 400-mile trip in half the time it takes an airplane. The “Hyperloop” system would use a large tube with capsules inside that would float on air, traveling at over 700 miles per hour. under the ground that contains a special environment,” Musk wrote in his proposal, posted online. Capsules could depart every 30 seconds, carrying 28 people, with a projected cost of about $20 each way, according to Musk’s plan, which was posted online at http:// www.spacex.com/hyperloop. The proposed route would follow Interstate 5 — a well-travelled path linking California’s north and south through the agriculture-rich Central Valley. On a conference call Monday, Musk said that if all goes right, it could take seven to 10 years for the first passengers to make the journey between California’s two biggest metro areas. He put the price tag at around $6 billion — pointedly mentioning that’s about one-tenth the projected cost of a high-speed rail system that Cali-
fornia has been planning to build. Indeed, the Hyperloop was inspired by that rail system, which has a cost too high and speed too low to justify the project, Musk said. In a written statement, California High-Speed Rail Authority Chairman Dan Richard suggested that Musk was oversimplifying the challenges. “If and when Mr. Musk pursues his Hyperloop technology, we’ll be happy to share our experience about what it really takes to build a project in California, across seismic zones, minimizing impacts on farms, businesses and communities and protecting sensitive environmental areas and species,” Richard said. Like the bullet train, the Hyperloop didn’t take long to attract skepticism.

RDC FILM STUDIES GRAD WINS FESTIVAL AWARDS FOR TWO PROJECTS BY MURRAY CRAWFORD ADVOCATE STAFF Three years after finishing his thesis at Red Deer College, former film student Jeff Woodward submitted it to its first film festival. He came away with one of two awards from the interPLAY Film Festival in Fort McMurray. His thesis film earning one award and a newer short film earned an award for he and his lead actress. Winning for both the best short film narrative and best feature film narrative, Woodward was happy with how the
festival went. His thesis and winner for best feature film narrative, Tumaini: Leave A Little Room For Hope, tells the story of a teacher who fancies himself as an inspiration to his students, similar to the Dead Poets Society teacher. “He’s just returned from his first trip to Africa and he’s really experienced abject poverty for the first time in his life,” said Woodward. “He’s experiencing the guilt any normal person would experience after seeing people living and dying like that.” Because of this experience the teacher gets a ‘Bono-complex,’ believing he can save the
world and by doing so he misses that he is making an impact on the lives of the students he teaches. Eventually, he has a mental breakdown and has his classroom haunted by a 10-yearold African girl. His students have to save him from himself. “For whatever reason, we had never actually submitted it to this particular festival, which obviously we should have done,” said Woodward. The second film, the short One More Night, was Woodward’s first directing effort. It was shot in Edmonton last November and focuses on the awkward conversation surrounding a breakup.
“It’s the morning after the night together, after you’ve broken up,” said Woodward. “A couple meets at the party, end up spending the night together and we catch up when they wake up the next morning and it is about that really awkward conversation when one person really wants it to be over and the other wants to keep going. “It is pretty raw, actually.” Woodward’s friend and Red Deer native Whitney Richter played one person in the couple, along with Kayla Bigras. She won best actress at the festival.

Hearing voices from the past CORPORATE SPONSORS SOUGHT FOR PROJECT THAT RECORDS INTERVIEWS WITH VETERANS BY SUSAN ZIELINSKI ADVOCATE STAFF Veterans Voices of Canada is looking for corporate sponsors to help reach aging veterans before it’s too late. Allan Cameron, 46, founder of Veterans Voices, said the average age of Second World War veterans is 90 and Korean War veterans are not far behind. There’s likely just 10 years left to do as many interviews as possible, he said. Cameron has more than 70 veterans waiting to be interviewed, about 50 from the Second World War and the Korean War. Since 2006, he has videotaped close to 750 veterans telling their stories. “It never gets repetitive. There’s always
similar stories, but every veteran always has a different story to tell. You can have five veterans from one action, even within feet from each other, and every one of them has a different perspective on what they saw and what they did,” said Cameron, a Sylvan Lake resident. Veterans Voices of Canada is a non-profit organization preserving the memories of veterans and peacekeepers for those who served, their families and the public. Through his work, Cameron said he was finally able to find out how his great uncle Ernest Glenmore Hill died in France on July 25, 1944. One of Hill’s fellow soldiers read an article about Veterans Voices of Canada in which Cameron spoke about his great uncle. A photo of Hill was included and
the veteran recognized him and contacted Cameron. Cameron learned Hill was on a reconnaissance mission as a machine-gunner on a bren gun carrier when it was surrounded by German infantry. Hill ran into a nearby house for cover but he died in a hail of machine-gun fire. Last year, Cameron visited the farm where Hill was killed. “They took me right to the orchard where the German tank cut them off. It was quite a scene of carnage. A lot of deaths happened that day. The farmer actually cut down every apple tree except one because of what happened that day.” For more information about Veterans Voices of Canada, visit www.vetvoicecan. org. firstname.lastname@example.org

A small roof fire at Eastview Middle School caused minimal damage on Sunday night. Cody McClintock, associate superintendent with Red Deer Public Schools, said cleanup will cost a few hundred dollars. “It will be fixed today. “It will not affect the start up of the school,” McClintock said on Monday. At about 7 p.m., a nearby resident reported a small amount of smoke coming from the roof of the school at 3929 40th Ave. Red Deer Emergency Services say the fire, which affected a 1.5-by-1.5-metre area above the main entrance, was knocked down quickly. “It appears someone got access to the roof. “It appears it was deliberately set from what I understand. The police are investigating,” McClintock said. A small amount of water that leaked down into the main entrance area of the school needed to be cleaned up. Classes at Red Deer Public Schools resume on Sept. 3. email@example.com
The taps are being turned on at Red Deer’s first spray park today and all are welcome to come splash around in the city’s latest Centennial Legacy Project. The grand opening ceremony will get underway at 11 a.m. at the Blue Grass Sod Farms Central Spray and Play located in the northwest corner of Rotary Recreation Park at 47A Avenue and 48th Street. Lasting until 4 p.m., the ceremony will feature a free barbecue, entertainment, snacks and prizes. The 7,500-square-foot space encompasses 35 spray toys and two dump buckets with an onsite washroom and picnic tables, public parking and bicycle racks nearby. It has been designed to include a representation of the meandering Red Deer River and a railway trestle to replicate the old CP Rail bridge. The park also features a water reuse/filtration system, which the city says will mean the overall investment will be paid back in three years through realized savings in water con-
sumption. “This park’s a little different in the fact that we’re actually treating and recirculating the water. We chlorinate the water and recirculate it, so it’s a nice environmental feature,” explained project superintendent Jerry Hedlund. The park got its moniker through a pilot project that saw the city seek expressions of interest for the title sponsorship of the $1.1-million spray park and the recently opened $1.4-million Glendale Skate Park. While the latter opened without a title sponsor, Blue Grass Sod Farms was chosen as the winning bid for the water park. “We did have other interested parties, but this was the best fit,” said Shelley Gagnon, the city’s Recreation, Parks and Culture Department manager, citing the business’s family-oriented philosophy. Gagnon would not provide details on the terms of the sponsorship agreement, but said the business will have the opportunity to renew the relationship when it expires.

BAND CAMP REHEARSAL
BRIEFS Lawyer seeks more time to examine psychiatric reports on murder suspect The lawyer for a man accused of killing a Fort Saskatchewan woman and then dumping her body in a ditch near Innisfail has asked for more time to review psychiatric reports. Mark Damien Lindsay, 26, has remained in custody since March 15, 2012, when he was arrested in Port Coquitlam, B.C. on other charges. Lindsay is being held on charges of second-degree murder, interfering with human remains and obstructing justice in connection with the death of Jana Turner, 31, whose body was found on Oct. 9, 2011. Turner was reported missing almost two months earlier. A Red Deer lawyer speaking on behalf of Lindsay’s defence counsel, Robert Shaigec of Edmonton, said the defence needs more time to review the most recent psychiatric reports before setting a date for Lindsay’s trial. Shaigec and his client are to return to Red Deer Court of Queen’s Bench on Monday, Sept. 9.
DNA studied in relation to violence home invasion Criminal proceedings against a man charged in connection with a violent home invasion now swing on results from DNA testing. Jason Eljas Holkko, 25, was arrested on April 2, 2012, in connection with a incident at a home in the Kentwood subdivision of Red Deer. RCMP allege that two masked and armed men entered the house looking for someone who was not there. The suspects are alleged to have bound and beaten five people who were in the house before robbing them of a variety of goods, including a pickup truck. Currently in custody on charges arising from the incident, Holkko appeared in Red Deer Court of Queen’s Bench on Friday to confirm his plea of not guilty and set a trial date. However, defence counsel John MacNaughton asked that proceedings be adjourned for another month to give he and his client time to review the results of a DNA analysis he has recently received. Holkko is due back in court on Monday, Sept. 9.

FILM: ‘Spectacular’ performances honoured “Their performances were spectacular really,” said Woodward. “For me the job was to get out of the way and let them act.” It debuted at the Interrobang Film Festival in Des Moines, Iowa, before being submitted to the interPLAY festival. Woodward chose to submit to the interPLAY festival because it was a smaller Alberta one. He said he felt the films had a better chance at finding an audience at the smaller festival than at a larger one. The awards were handed out on Aug. 4. The film festival ran from Aug. 2 to 4. “It was really surprising,” said Woodward. “It was a last-minute decision to enter those films, so it was surprising and then, obviously, very gratifying, and to have Whitney Richter win for best actress for One More Night, it’s obviously very nice to have acknowledgement on your work in that manner. “Even though it is a small but growing festival, the crew up there do a really good job. It is a top-notch festival and it is a nice festival to get that acknowledgement from.” Woodward, who now lives in Edmonton, is working on a couple of feature films: a documentary project and a television show, all of which are in the beginning stages. firstname.lastname@example.org
SPLASH: Sponsorship City council approved a new sponsorship policy earlier in 2013, with the pilot project done to see how the community would respond to the city’s efforts in seeking sponsorship. “We have a ton of assets — building assets, program assets, special event assets — that council through the adoption of the policy has suggested that they are interested in looking at sponsorship as an alternative form of financial sustainability,” said Gagnon. “We will take our findings and recommendations back to council later this fall in terms of how these pilot projects worked out and then from there, coun-

A trial will be held next spring for a Lacombe man facing a series of pornography, drug and weapons charges. Kyle James Bracken, currently in custody, was arrested during a drug raid by Lacombe police. Bracken was subsequently charged with a series of offences, including producing drugs, possession of drugs for trafficking, possession of child pornography, voyeurism and possession of dangerous weapons. He was further charged with making child pornography and other sexual offences. Granted release shortly after the charges were laid, Bracken was returned to custody after missing his March 11 court appearance. He pleaded not guilty to all charges in Red Deer Court of Queen’s Bench on Friday, asking to be tried by judge alone. His trial is set for four days, opening on April 16, 2014.

You can’t Don’t let someone eat the view take advantage of you “What you allow is what will continue.” — Author Unknown “There,” said John, pointing to the right. “I think I see it.” After a brief search, we had found my car. It was nose down in the ditch at about a 30-degree angle. Drifting snow had obscured all but the back window and trunk. It would take some shovelling to even open the driver’s door. I withdrew the gloves from my coat pocket, pulled the toque down low over my ears and wrapped the scarf a little tighter around my neck. MURRAY John maneuvered the truck FUHRER onto the shoulder of the road and switched on the four-way EXTREME ESTEEM flashers. “You brought a tow-rope, right?” He nodded and we climbed out of the cab and into the frigid January night. I had been taken advantage of and felt like a fool. And the sad part was this was not the first time. This particular event happened some 30 years ago and shortly after I’d left home. A couple days prior, a colleague at work had asked to borrow my car. Initially, I told him no but he persisted. He had met a new girl in the city and “needed” to make a good impression. He promised to fill the car with gas and have it back at my apartment no later than Friday morning. I was reluctant but when he started talking about what good friends do for each other, I relented. Later, I would be angry and critical of myself because he wasn’t a friend. So why had I lent him my precious car when I had already made plans for the same evening? Perhaps you know the feeling when someone makes an unreasonable request and you agree to it not because you want to but because you fear the consequence of standing up and saying no. I had someone say to me once, “I’m sick and tired of being taken advantage of when all I tried to do is be kind.” Was I just trying to be kind or was there more to it? Often, being “used” comes down to a lack of assertiveness. Lots of people struggle with assertiveness and thus many get taken advantage of. Assertiveness is a skill essential to effective living and healthy self-
esteem. It allows us to respect and express our rights and feelings. If assertiveness is the key to stopping being taken advantage of, then the first step is to define the term. Assertiveness is the act of saying what we need or want, or protecting ourselves from what we do not want, while respecting the needs and rights of others. Assertive behaviour involves identifying the behaviour that concerns us, identifying our feelings about it and stating what we want to happen as a result. What causes people to avoid being assertive? Often it’s the fear of displeasing others and of not being liked. Fear of conflict often plays a significant role. In reality, the stress associated with not speaking up is often much greater than facing the potential conflict and resolving it in a constructive manner. Acting assertively requires that we be forthright, honest and clearly express our feelings, opinions and needs. And, not surprisingly, it is often the most effective way to resolve conflict or reach a compromise. When we speak of being taken advantage of, we’re often describing the emotion of resentment. Resentment gets a grip on us when we have not acted on our own behalf. The good news is, with persistence and practise, you can stop being taken advantage of and find your voice. If you feel that you are being taken advantage of and decide to speak up, the words you choose will make a big difference to the outcome. Experts in assertiveness training suggest we avoid using language that might sound accusing like “you did this” or “you said that.” Instead, they suggest we focus on “I” statements that convey our feelings to the other person. Other suggestions include stating our point-ofview without being hesitant or apologetic, refusing to be manipulated and respectfully volunteering our opinions even when they’re different from others. Body language plays a role. Experts suggest we face a person squarely with a straight upper body, maintain good eye contact and remain firm but calm. When I spoke to the colleague the next day about the whereabouts of my car, he admitted to hitting the ditch and said he had planned to tell me when I arrived at work. I told him it had been a cold walk to work and I would have appreciated a phone call. He responded by saying he hadn’t wanted to bother me as it had been past midnight when he finally arrived home.
Growing up on a ranch was wonderful; wide open spaces, horseback riding, and the intoxicating smell of freshly cut hay on a summer afternoon. Those are the things I remember most. Of course, farming also meant isolation, sick animals and the nauseating sight of a crop ruined by hail, rain or drought. Farming can be a cruel occupation. This year we’ve had so much rain the hay fields around us have grown thick and lush. Some are saying it’s the best crop of hay they’ve seen in 26 years. There’s just one problem . . . it won’t stop raining long enough to cut, dry and bale it. The hay that is getting put up is mostly what the locals refer to as “well washed”. SHANNON Sometimes having a sense MCKINNON of humour is the only thing that keeps a farmer sane. Once the hay has been cut it has to come off the field, so even when it has been washed so often it’s black, you still have to bale it. There are few sights more heartbreaking than a farmer spending time, fuel and twine putting up black bales of hay destined for burning. There is still plenty of hay standing, but now, even if it did stop raining, the hay is getting past its prime. Once the grasses and legumes start going to seed much of the nutritional value is lost. With such a narrow window to work with it’s a wonder any good hay ever gets put up at all, but — against all odds — it does. There are years when the fields are speckled with bright green bundles. Years where the hay makes it off the field, stacked and stored in its prime without a drop of rain. Of course, those are the years everyone has lots of good hay so the price drops. Such are the economics of farming. Hence the joke my father loved to tell about the farmer who wins the lottery. When he is asked what he plans to do with all his money he enthusiastically replies, “I am going to farm until it’s all gone.”

Ask son about frat before he pledges ★★★ Q: My teenage daughter has battled boredom and wasted a lot of time during summer break. What can I do to change that next year? Bob Waliszewski, director of Plugged In: It’s difficult to move from a schedule of structured six- to 10-hour days to total free time. And a bored teen will be unhappy and more likely to gravitate toward trouble. But counselors Tim Geare and Tim Sanford suggest that it’s possible to help structure your daughter’s life over the summer months and still have her feel ownership and excitement. Geare and Sanford recommend that parents decide the overall priorities and tone of the summer. Will every day begin at noon or dawn? Will there be a family vacation? Is there a financial goal for your teen? Is camp or a mission trip an option? How do siblings’ needs fit into the picture? How about summer school? Are there sports she could further develop? And most importantly, are there character qualities lacking in her life? Develop a vision for what you feel is in your daughter’s best interest. Consider her gifts, skills and interests, and develop options that will engage her imagination. Too many bored teens gravitate toward the TV or video game controller. While I don’t think these things should be taboo, I do recommend that your daughter “earn” the privilege: Every hour of reading a great book translates into 30 minutes of screen time. For older teens, employment is a key issue, but make sure any job supports the overall goals of the summer. If camp or a family trip is important, don’t let a job confound those priorities.

Q: Our son is heading off for his first year at college and wants to pledge to a fraternity. Is this a good idea for a freshman? I don’t know much about fraternities. Jim: The answer to this question depends on a number of factors. Not every fraternity resembles Animal House. While some may be considered almost entirely social in nature, others seek to bring together students who share similar interests or who are involved in the same academic disciplines. There are serviceoriented fraternities, ethnically and linguistically based fraternities, and even some fraternities whose purpose is JIM primarily religious or spiriDALY tual. That being the case, FOCUS ON FAMILY it’s important for you to discern what type of fraternity your son is hoping to join. Unfortunately, many do have a reputation for wild behavior and crazy parties. That’s not to mention the peer-group power they wield. It can have a huge impact on an impressionable freshman living away from home for the first time in his life. And some campuses are known for these types of frat houses more than others. Is the atmosphere on campus studious or “party like”? Is the fraternity in question spiritual, academic or purely social in purpose? If you don’t know, sit down with your son and find out. It’s also critical that you consider your son’s character. Is he firmly grounded in his beliefs? Does he know his own mind, or is he easily influenced by others? If you feel that he lacks the maturity to handle a fraternity at this point, encourage him to look for loyal companions elsewhere by pointing him toward other academic and social groups on campus.

This app will not harm your baby BY HANNA ROSIN ADVOCATE NEWS SERVICES WASHINGTON — The same group that targeted the Baby Einstein company for exaggerating claims that its videos would turn your baby into Albert Einstein has now moved on to Fisher-Price for its Laugh & Learn mobile apps. The group, called the Campaign for a CommercialFree Childhood, filed a complaint to the Federal Trade Commission, saying that Fisher-Price does not have a “single credible scientific study” showing that babies can acquire any skills or information from these apps. The campaign probably chose to target these particular apps because a major toy company owns them and they are highly popular with parents. But I imagine if they could, the good people of CCFC would ask the FTC to investigate every one of the hundreds of thousands of app developers listed in the education category of iTunes, because its founders believe that these developers rob children of the right to grow up “without being undermined by commercial interests.” CCFC similarly waited until the Walt Disney Company bought Baby Einstein in 2001 before filing a complaint against them. But with that franchise, the group had more of a legitimate claim about exaggerated marketing. Baby Einstein videos made very specific, direct claims that babies and toddlers would learn to identify shapes or colors or body parts, adding that there is a “little genius” inside your child, or that the child would have a “learning advantage” or test some specific percentage better on some particular measure of baby intelligence. These were the crude, early days of appealing to parental anxiety and ambition, and since then companies have gotten more subtle and smart. The iTunes page for Fisher-Price’s Laugh & Learn count-

ESTEEM: Learn to say no “I had to walk nearly a mile in the cold before I caught a ride into town,” he explained. “I was pretty much frozen by that point.” I suggested that he might want to call a tow truck. He shrugged and told me he had no money. I wondered how he had planned paying for gas. I read once, “Don’t ever let someone take advantage of you or treat you with disrespect. Being nice is one thing. Being taken advantage of is another.” I have worked long and hard on this issue and, though it still rears its ugly head, I have become much more adept at saying no. I called my buddy, John who picked me up after work in his old pickup truck. We found the vehicle about 15 miles out of town. John helped me dig the car out of the snow bank and with a lot of pulling, pushing and tire-spinning, finally managed to get it back onto the road. “John,” I asked as we waited for my car to warm up. “Am I taking advantage of you?” He looked at me and smiled. “Who actually showed up to help me move?” “Never tell me the sky’s the limit when (I know) there are footprints on the moon.” — Author Unknown
ing app says, for example, “Babies are encouraged to learn about numbers and animals through interaction with engaging animations and sound effects,” which, if you look at the app, they are. That doesn’t mean they will learn their numbers or morph into Isaac Newton, but, sure, encouraged they may be. There are two ways to approach the strange new reality of electronic toy invasion of pristine babyhood. A parent can pretend it’s not happening and insist on a nostalgic vision of childhood dominated by bubble blowing and sand-castle building, or parents can make reasonable choices about, say, how many and which apps they will let their toddler play with and have reasonable expectations for results (that it will occupy your baby, not groom her for Harvard). If you take the latter road, the Laugh & Learn apps are a perfectly reasonable choice. They meet the two criteria set out by Warren Buckleitner, founder of the Children’s Technology Review and expert on all things media for children: developmentally appropriate and interactive. The apps are based on the classic Fisher-Price Busy Box, a toy that’s been around at least since I was a kid. The concept is about as sophisticated as a rattle. In the real life version, you press, say, a purple star, and the Busy Box says “purple star.” In the app version, you touch a purple star and the same thing happens. The only difference on the app version is a baby can’t actually feel the bumpy star, but that’s not really a crime, is it? News stories about this latest children’s media war repeat the same claims that CCFC made about Baby Einstein — that studies have shown that children under 2 who are exposed to media develop ADHD or score lower on certain tests or are more likely to develop some kind of delinquency later in life. But those studies are highly disputed, and there produce to sell at Farmer’s Markets.

In the thick of the farming years my mother would often lament that farming was the only occupation where you worked all year to bring a product to market and then asked what they would give you for it, instead of demanding a profitable price. Then there’s the old adage that once in your life you will need a lawyer, a doctor, a policeman and a preacher, but every day, three times a day, you need a farmer.

are many that show the opposite: that children can easily learn things if the media is designed correctly, as I outline in a recent Atlantic story on children and touch technology. CCFC is exaggerating when they say there are no credible scientific studies that show kids can learn from apps. There aren’t that many, because apps aren’t that old, but there is plenty of exciting research showing that apps, because they are interactive, are precisely the right kind of technology for kids. In its Baby Einstein crusade, CCFC used to cite statistics showing that parents did not know that the educational claims were exaggerated. If that was ever actually true, it’s no longer. The generation of babies raised blindly on Baby Einstein videos is now in middle school, and we have had no reports of a prodigy boom. But if parents ever believed that a baby watching shapes drift by on a TV screen was going to turn into Einstein then they were willfully deluded. The cultural problem with kids and technology is deeper than false marketing claims. We American parents have a dysfunctional relationship with technology. We are terrified that too much of it will turn our kids into basement-dwelling losers but too little will mean they miss some opportunity at Silicon Valley greatness. We treat it like a precision instrument that we have to use in just the right way, instead of what it should be, which is a toy, a different way for kids to play.

RISING UP THE RANKINGS Milos Raonic is the first Canadian men’s singles player to be ranked in the top 10, thanks to his run to the final of the Rogers Cup. The star player from Thornhill, Ont., who lost to Rafael Nadal in Sunday’s final in Montreal, is No. 10 in the new ATP rankings released Monday. He moved up three spots from No. 13, his previous career high. Raonic didn’t have the biggest jump in the rankings among Canadian men. Vasek Pospisil of Vernon, B.C., who lost to Raonic in the Rogers Cup semifinals, rose 31 spots to No. 40 to reach his career high. Nadal moved up one spot to No. 3 after winning the Rogers Cup.

JAYS WASTE SOLID EFFORT FROM STARTER TO DROP THREE OF FOUR TO ATHLETICS BY THE CANADIAN PRESS Athletics 5 Blue Jays 1 TORONTO — J.A. Happ gave the Toronto Blue Jays everything but a win Monday afternoon. Alberto Callaspo doubled in two runs in a four-run ninth inning to power the Oakland Athletics past Toronto 5-1 at Rogers Centre. The win gave the A’s (67-50) three-of-four against the Jays (54-64). The defeat was a bitter pill to swallow for Happ, who is also mourning the loss of his grandfather. Happ allowed three hits, two walks and one run while striking out six over seven innings in his second start since being hit in the head by a line drive May 7 at Tropicana Field. “I definitely had a heavy heart,” Happ said. “I tried to use it. “I probably had a little bit of a different attitude, a little different outlook given the past few days. But I felt good and be glad to get with the family this week.” Happ was put on the threeday bereavement list after the game. The only run he surrendered came on the first hitter he faced as Chris Young belted his 10th homer this season and fifth by Oakland to lead off a game. After walking Young to lead off the third, Happ retired 14 consecutive batters until Callaspo hit his first double of the game with two out in the seventh. “It’s definitely something to build off,” Happ said. “I think that aggressiveness, a little more carefree maybe in my delivery in just trying to be aggressive in the zone was a good things for me and that’s usually when I have better results. “So I’ll definitely try to continue that.” Toronto manager John Gib-

But then everything fell in line.” Happ fanned Callaspo in the second after giving up a single and walk to open the inning.

Straily held Toronto to six hits and one run over 7 1/3 innings. Reliever Ryan Cook (5-2) pitched two-thirds of an inning for the win. “He was probably as good as we’ve seen him all year,” A’s manager Bob Melvin said. “Efficient, strikes, deep in the game. “He was aggressive with his fastball and he had a really good slider.

SURREY, B.C. — Steve Myddelton does not bleed Calgary Stampeders red anymore. After four-plus seasons with the Stamps, it took only one trip across the Rocky Mountains for the offensive lineman to gain a whole new perspective on his CFL career. “My outlook is very different from what it has been for the last five years — I’ll tell you that much,” said Myddelton after his first workout Monday with the B.C. Lions after the club returned to practice after a bye week. The Lions acquired Myddelton, a 27-yearold Barrie, Ont., native who is in the fifth year of a CFL career spent entirely with the Stampeders, for a conditional 2014 draft choice. Myddelton’s first game with his new team will could come at home Saturday, against his old team. B.C. traded for the guard last week in a bid to acquire depth after promising rookie Kirby Fabien was lost for the season with a knee injury that required reconstructive surgery. Myddelton was one of two new faces in the B.C. fold Monday. The Lions also added
defensive back Cameron Chism, a former Indianapolis Colt, to their practice roster. While Chism will likely have to wait a while for his turn, Myddelton is expected to draw into the lineup right away, although coach Mike Benevides was not offering confirmation. “I’m really excited to be here,” said Myddelton. “I can’t wait to play against Calgary. ”They’re playing really good football right now. The Lions are obviously one of the premier teams in the league year in and year out. It’s always an exciting matchup, and I’m excited to be on the other side of the ball for it.“ But Myddelton, a St. Francis Xavier University alumnus who was drafted by Calgary in the fourth round (30th overall) in 2009, holds no ill feelings against his former club after Stampeders general manager and coach John Hufnagel decided to move him to a West Division rival. “They’re a classy organization,” said Myddelton. “He’s a classy guy.” Now, Myddelton finds himself in the position of providing injury insurance after he battled injuries of his own. He lost his starting job with the Stamps after missing most of last season with a knee injury that required surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament. “I hurt myself two years ago but only missed four games towards the end of the season,” he said. “I came back last year and
was starting again, and then I blew my ACL out in practice and missed the remainder of the season, and this year there wasn’t really a spot for me.” Myddelton’s ordeal was compounded by the fact he is in the last year of his contract and slated to become a free agent at the end of this season. “I think all these things came into play,” he said. “So it was hard the first few games of the season, realizing where I sat and what was happening. So it was nice to have something finalized and know that I have a home here for the rest of the season.” He is grateful for an opportunity to help a Lions offensive line that is also grappling with centre Angus Reid’s back injury, which has placed him on the nine-game injured reserve list. Veteran guard Dean Valli, who has helped the Lions get through Fabien’s injury by starting in his place, is playing on a rebuilt knee. “I have sympathy, really, for the guys who’ve gone down,” said Myddelton. “It’s a hard thing to deal with. But I also know that they can come back from it, because here I am less than a year later. It’s not the end of anything. Also, it provided me with the opportunity to be here in the first place. So I’m taking that (opportunity) for what it is and trying to do my best while I’m here.”

tension filled primarily due to grip pressure. Tight grip pressure creates tension in the hands and works itself throughout the body. This tension resists the body from moving fluidly therefore compromising speed. Eliminating tension from the body is the first step to creating speed and this begins with grip pressure. Hard vs. fast, although a play on words, certainly is the first step to understanding how to create more speed. One of the most common questions I get when working with a student is should I slow my golf swing down. My playing partners have told me that I am swinging to fast and if I slowed my swing down I would hit the ball better. It seems that when a player is having difficulty making contact with the ball the answer to all of their problems (or at least how their playing partners see it) is to slow the swing down. The fact is that in all of the years I have been teaching, I
rarely see a golfer swing the club too fast. Generally speaking, poor contact is a direct result of incorrect body positions. Slowing the swing down does not mean that your body positions will improve. In fact, in most cases, I prefer and will instruct players to speed up their golf swing. Speed is a critical component to hitting the ball further. The second component is contact. If you do not have good contact, then all the speed in the world will not get the ball to travel further and in the direction you wish to go. Poor ball contact can be attributed to many different factors. Although too many to discuss in this article, one of the main factors is what is referred to as an “over the top move”, or an outside to in swing path. An outside to in swing path refers to the path the club head takes as you begin your downswing.

Jamaica’s sprint dominance continues FRASER-PRICE CRUISES TO WOMEN’S 100M WIN, CANADA’S THEISEN EATON SITS FOURTH AFTER FIRST DAY OF HEPTATHLON BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WORLD TRACK AND FIELD CHAMPIONSHIPS
MOSCOW — The U.S.-Jamaican sprint rivalry is turning into a rout at the world championships. With her long hot-pink hair slashing in the air behind her, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce captured the 100 metres Monday with a winning margin of Boltesque proportions. Fraser-Pryce sped to an early lead that kept growing and finished in a world-leading 10.71 seconds. She even had time to clench and pump her fist as she crossed the line. Silver medallist Murielle Ahoure of the Ivory Coast trailed by a massive 0.22 seconds, more than double the previous top margin in 30 years of world championships. Defending champion Carmelita Jeter of the United States took bronze the in 10.94. Like the mighty Usain Bolt, who won the 100 on Sunday, Fraser-Pryce now has two Olympic and two world titles in the 100 at the same age of 26. “I am Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce. I compare myself to nobody,” the Jamaican said. “What Usain has, he has. What I have is hard work.” What Bolt certainly doesn’t have is hair extensions sent over from a Jamaican hairdresser: “It makes me pretty — prettier.” Brianne Theisen Eaton, a native of Humboldt, Sask., was fourth Monday following the first day of the heptathlon. She trailef leader Ganna Melnichenko of Ukraine by 102 points and was just 26 points behind American Sharon Day, who was third. Also on Monday, Alex Genest of Lac-aux-Sables, Que., and Matthew Hughes of Oshawa, Ont., both advanced to the 3,000-metre steeplechase final. Hughes set a personal-best time of 8:16.93 to finish second in his heat. Genest was disqualified from his heat for lane lane infringement after posting a time of 8:24.56. Athletics Canada launched an appeal and Genest was re-instated and advanced to the final. Before a sparse crowd at Luzhniki Stadium, Fraser-Pryce gave Jamaica a 2-0 lead over the Americans in the sprint duel, showing the Caribbean island produces the world’s fastest runners. While Bolt is a slow starter and the greatest of finishers, Fraser-Pryce reacts to the gun like few others. “Most persons in the race are closers, when they get to 70 and 60 they are opening up,” Fraser-Pryce said. “But I knew I had an advantage. And that was my start. And that was what I focused on.” By the end, the others could only watch her tresses flap across the line, pretty in pink. The U.S. got its part of the glory, too, when David Oliver led a 1-2 finish in the 110 hurdles with Ryan Wilson second. It would have been a clean sweep had defending champion Jason Richardson not stumbled near the end and fell back to fourth.

Canada’s Brianne Theisen Eaton competes in the high jump in the heptathlon at the World Athletics Championships in the Luzhniki stadium in Moscow, Russia, Monday. Unlike Fraser-Pryce, Christine Ohuruogu never led in her race until the last moment of the 400 final to beat defending champion Amantle Montsho by four-thousandths of a second. She set a British record to regain the world title she first won in 2007, dipping at the line to cap a great comeback. “When I finished I didn’t know if I’d won it. I didn’t want to get over-excited until my name came up,” Ohuruogu said. Montsho said she was beaten by an elementary error — thinking she had won before crossing the line. “I did not see Christine coming from behind,” Montsho said. “If I knew that I would push my chest forward and would have made it.” At the end of Day 3 at the championships, the U.S. leads the medals standings with three gold and six
overall. Germany is second with four medals overall after Raphael Holzdeppe upset Olympic champion Renaud Lavillenie of France on a countback to win the pole vault. In the shot put, Valerie Adams became the first woman to win four straight individual world titles. The Olympic champion from New Zealand won with a toss of 68 feet, 6 inches. She has now won 38 straight events and has won every major championship at least twice. Christina Schwanitz of Germany took silver with and Gong Lijiao of China earned bronze. Pawel Fajdek of Poland won the hammer throw, ending the 23-meet unbeaten streak of Olympic champion Krisztian Pars of Hungary. Fajdek’s winning throw of 268-11 meant Pars had to settle for silver with a toss of 263-5.
Redemption sweet for Dufner Hockey prospect dies after collapse during training BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
PITTSFORD, N.Y. — Jason Dufner doesn’t have the same set of skills as Rory McIlroy and Adam Scott, though his career has shared the same path — from a memorable collapse at a major championship to redemption in pretty short order. And in this sport, redemption doesn’t always come easily. Just ask Dustin Johnson or Thomas Bjorn. There’s an even longer list of players who gave away majors in the final hour and never so much as earned another shot, such as Ed Sneed or Mike Reid. There was reason to believe Dufner might be part of the latter group. Go back just two years to Atlanta Athletic Club to find Dufner standing on the 15th tee with the PGA Championship in his hands. He was four shots clear of Anders Hansen and five ahead of Keegan Bradley, who had just made a triple bogey on the par-3 15th. What followed was painful to watch. Dufner hit into the water
and made bogey on the 15th. He hit into a bunker right of the 16th and made bogey. He hit the middle of the 17th green and still made bogey with a three-putt. Bradley answered with back-to-back birdies to catch Dufner, and then beat him in a playoff. “Maybe looking back 10, 15 years from now, I’ll feel disappointment that I let this one get away if I never get another chance,” Dufner said that day. He was certain there would be more opportunities. But then, everyone feels that way. McIlroy had a four-shot lead at the Masters in 2010 and shot 80 to tie the record for the worst score by a 54-hole leader. He vowed to learn from his mistakes, and it was the shortest lesson in major championship history. He won the very next major by setting the U.S. Open record of 268 at Congressional for an eightshot win. That wasn’t a huge surprise. McIlroy is a special player. More agonizing was watching Scott make bogey on the last four holes at
STORIES FROM B5
JAYS: Snowballed Callaspo, obtained July 30 from the Los Angeles Angels, also snapped a tie in the A’s 6-4 win Sunday with a tworun double in the eighth. Straily left after singles by Jose Reyes and Maicer Izturis put runners on the corners with one out in the eighth. Cook took over and Reyes scored the tying run on Callaspo’s error on a ball hit by Jose Bautista. But Edwin Encarnacion lined into an inning-ending double play. Donaldson led off the ninth with a single and pinch-hitter Brandon Moss doubled with one out. Josh Reddick, who had five homrtd the first two games of the series, was walked intentionally. Callaspo knocked in two runs off Toronto closer Casey Janssen (4-1) with his second double of the game. Stephen Vogt singled in another and Sogard hit a sacrifice fly. “I gave up that leadoff single and it just kind of snowballed one me,” Janssen said. “You have to give them a little bit of credit they swung the bats and I didn’t execute as good as I should have. “I think I threw a few more offspeed pitches, just trying to find a way to get an out. I threw a few more changeups than I usually do and I left one up to Vogt. Overall I just wasn’t very good.”
Royal Lytham & St. Annes, turning a four-shot lead with four holes to play into another British Open title for Ernie Els. Scott promised he would do better the next time. He truly believed there would be a next time, and he waited only two more majors to win the Masters. Dufner didn’t have that pedigree. When he threw away his shot at the PGA Championship, he had never won on the PGA Tour and never cracked the top 30 on the money list. At age 34, it was only his second year playing all four majors. Would he ever get another chance like that? Yes. And when he least expected it. That experience in Atlanta served Dufner well in the short term. He won twice on the PGA Tour the next year. He made the Ryder Cup team and went 3-1. And his popularity as the guy with no pulse took off when he was caught by a camera slumping against the wall, zoned out, while sitting next to elementary school children learning about focus.
CFL: More depth on the offensive line Benevides is glad to have more depth on the offensive line as his club prepares to face the Stamps, whom he rates as the team to beat in the West after their win over the previously unbeaten Saskatchewan Roughriders last weekend. Although offensive linemen often toil anonymously, the Lions coach is already quite familiar with Myddelton and likes what he has seen. “I know (Myddelton) from prepping against him, and I know this: He’s an extremely intelligent player,” said Benevides. “He’s a tough guy, he’s a guy that’s played and had some starts. Right now, he’s a very good lineman, who has experience, who’s been in the league now five years, that can step in. And, right now, if he stepped in right away, he’d have an understanding.” Chism, a 23-year-old Washington, D.C., native, who spent part of 2012 with Indianapolis before being released, was also brought in for depth purposes. He signed with the Colts as an undrafted free agent after starting 32 of his 44 games at Maryland, where he returned two interceptions for touchdowns. But he was released in September and did not receive another NFL opportunity this year. “He’s a guy that’s been on the radar a little bit,” said Benevides. Notes—The Lions knew of Chism from his days at Maryland and the fact he attended the same Forestville, Md., high school as B.C. defensive backs
BY THE CANADIAN PRESS BATHURST, N.B. — A 16-yearold prospect for the AcadieBathurst Titan junior hockey team died Monday after he collapsed during tryouts with the club. Photi Sotiropoulos of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League said Jordan Boyd felt some discomfort during a wind sprint at a rink in Bathurst, N.B. A first responder attempted unsuccessfully to revive Boyd before he was taken by ambulance to the local hospital, where medical staff determined he had died, Sotiropoulos said. An autopsy has been ordered to determine the cause of death. Sotiropoulos said the youth completed a full medical evaluation and was cleared to compete by the team doctor before the training camp began. “It’s very odd this would happen,” he said, adding there has only been one other training camp death in the league’s 30-year history. “It was horrifying news this morning. When you find out he was just 16 years old, that I think is the most tragic part.” He said the young man’s father
coach Mark Washington. a Lions slotback Nick Moore is expected to return to the lineup after missing the win over Winnipeg with an ankle injury. a B.C. defensive end Julius Williams has a chance to play after missing most of the season with a knee injury.
GOLF: Correct swing path A correct swing path would be one that approached the golf ball a little from the inside and then travels down the line that the ball is intended to travel. In other words, the line directly towards your target. Basically, an outside to in swing plane means that you are approaching the ball (in your downswing) from outside your intended target line (the line you intend your golf ball to travel) cutting across the ball creating a slice spin due to not making solid contact. This creates and in most cases is the root cause of any slice also creating a loss of distance. Therefore the first step to increasing your distance is to eliminate the over the top movement. One of the main causes to the movement is an incorrect swing plane in the backswing. During the backswing and downswing, you are attempting to make a circle around your body with your golf club. This circle is the same on both sides of your body and is extremely important to solid contact. This circle is the same as the angle of your club shaft when in your address position. During the backswing, the club
was watching the workout when his son collapsed. The family declined comment through the team. The five-foot, 11-inch forward is described by a former president of his minor hockey club in Halifax as a gifted player who had a bright future in the game. Paul MacIsaac, past president of the Bedford Blues, said Boyd had improved his offensive skills during his bantam season in 201112. “He was an excellent hockey player. He had quite a potential career and life in front of him,” MacIsaac said in a telephone interview. Boyd played last year for the Rothesay Netherwood School, a private school near Saint John, N.B., where he was noticed by the Titan organization. The league website says he was the team’s fourth-round pick and was selected 66th overall in the draft. “It’s shocking. It’s devastating. It’s unbelievable a young and strong and healthy person on his way to chase a dream is now gone,” said MacIsaac. “He was a big, strong kid. There were no health issues that anybody would have known of.”
head travels straight back away from the ball for approximately six inches. From here the natural rotation of the body works the club inside your target line and then as you hinge your wrists the golf club will start traveling upwards until it is positioned above your trail shoulder. This movement simulates a correct swing plane in most cases. An over the top movement is first of all created by taking the club to far inside the line early in the backswing. This places the golf club to far behind your trail shoulder at the top of the backswing. To get the golf club back to the ball a player has to reroute the club causing an over the top movement. In conjunction with this movement, most players who have an over the top movement will tend to grip the club too tight. A tight grip pressure generally causes tension but more importantly gives the player a feeling of control. Through this control they tend to swing the golf club using their hands primarily which causes them to use to much trail hand (right hand for right handed golfers) during the downswing. This control will not allow the club to drop down on plane therefore reroutes over the top. The result of an over the top movement will be poor contact with a loss of distance. Ensuring that you start with a relaxed grip pressure and do not take the club too far inside at the start of the backswing will most certainly assist in hitting the ball solid ultimately creating more distance. Have a great week of golf. Scott Bergdahl is the head professional at Lakewood Golf Resort

Man dies after fall from upper deck in Atlanta BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS ATLANTA — A man who fell about 20 metres from an upper-level platform at Atlanta’s Turner Field onto a parking lot during a baseball game died Monday night, police said. Atlanta police spokesman John Chafee confirmed the death of the man, whose name has not been released. The man fell during Monday night’s game between the Atlanta Braves and Philadelphia Phillies. “At this time there’s no indication of foul play and the fall appears accidental,” Chafee said late Monday. “It appears he fell from an upper-level platform to a secured lot below.” Chafee said police received the report of the fall just before 9 p.m. Monday. When officers arrived, they located a man who appeared to have fallen roughly six stories. The man was transported to Atlanta Medical Center and died of his injuries. Chafee said the fall occurred on the stadium’s back side. He said witnesses described the fall as accidental, but that police were not releasing other details of what they said. He said he did not know if wet conditions or alcohol were factors. Heavy rains had led to a nearly two-hour delay of the game, which was scheduled to start

at 7:10 p.m. A Braves spokeswoman declined comment earlier Monday night, referring calls to the Atlanta police. Monday’s accident wasn’t the first of its kind to happen at Turner Field, and marked at least the third time a sports fan has fallen from the stands in Atlanta in about a year. Isaac Grubb, 20, of Lenoir City, Tenn., died after falling over a railing at the Georgia Dome during a football game between Tennessee and North Carolina State on Aug. 31, 2012. Authorities said he landed on another man seated in the lower level, and that alcohol was a factor. A man fell about seven metres over a staircase railing at a Georgia Tech-Miami football game on Sept. 22, 2012 and was not seriously injured. In May 2008, a 25-year-old Cumming, Ga., man suffered head injuries when he fell down a stairwell at Turner Field during a game between the Braves and the New York Mets and later died. Police found that alcohol had factored into that accident, which the Braves had said was the first non-medical fatality to happen at the ballpark. Turner Field became the home of the Braves in 1997, a year after serving as the site of events for the 1996 Summer Olympics.

CFL PLAYERS OF THE WEEK THE CANADIAN PRESS TORONTO — A career-best accomplishment earned Jon Cornish two CFL weekly awards Monday. The veteran running back was named the league’s offensive player and Canadian player of the week after leading the Calgary Stampeders past the previously unbeaten Saskatchewan Roughriders 42-27. The native of New Westminster, B.C., rushed for 175 yards and scored a career-high four TDs in the game. Toronto Argonauts defensive back Alonzo Lawrence was named the top defensive player. He recovered two fumbles, forced another and had two tackles in a 38-13 win over the Montreal Alouettes. Teammate Chad Owens captured special-teams honours. The CFL’s outstanding player last season returned a missed field goal 118 yards for a TD and finished the contest with 247 allpurpose yards.
BUFFALO BILLS THE ASSOCIATED PRESS PITTSFORD, N.Y. — Calling himself “hard-headed,” Kevin Kolb thinks he’s ready to compete with rookie EJ Manuel for the starting quarterback job with the Buffalo Bills. Despite continued soreness in his left knee, Kolb returned to practice Monday for the first time in eight days with the intention of resuming an off-season-long competition with the Bills’ first-round draft pick. “They said, ’We’re going to ease you in.’ And I said, ’No you’re not. I want you to put me in,”’ Kolb said. “I wasn’t going to waste another day. I wanted to get out there.” Kolb acknowledged he has plenty of catching up to do since twisting his knee while slipping on a wet rubber mat during practice on Aug. 4. He missed five practices and was held out of the Bills’ preseason-opening 44-20 win at Indianapolis on Sun-

Dusty, voiced by Dane Cook, in a scene from the animated film Planes. The film offers plenty of celebrity voices and fabulous visuals.
Planes a sky-high crowd pleaser for kids ANIMATED OFFERING FROM DISNEY HAS STRONG VISUALS, ENGAGING STORY FOR YOUNG AUDIENCES is this one and it does. With a sequel already in production and set for release in 2014, the people at Disney clearly have sky-high expectations of Planes. Their confidence will likely be rewarded. Bruce DeMara is a syndicated Toronto Star movie critic.

Musburger, giving the control tower at New York’s JFK Airport a Kennedy-esque accent and a conversation between two female planes about an eligible but undesirable male flyer — “Nice enough guy, but way too much baggage.” Director Klay Hall has also corralled a slew of celebrity voices, among them British comic John Cleese as Bulldog, a de Havilland Comet; Stacey Keach as the gruff Skipper Riley, an aged Corsair who trains Dusty; and Julia Louis-Dreyfus doing a howlingly bad Quebecois accent as his love interest, Rochelle. And while the plotting is rather pedestrian, the humour mostly lame, what makes Planes a stand-out experience — not surprisingly, based on Disney’s vast and impressive history of animated classics — is the visuals. With so much of the action taking place in the stratosphere, the film is a visual treat throughout, including scenes of simple, homespun beauty, such as Nebraska cornfields, and others of breathtaking magnificence, capturing the majesty of the Himalayas and the Pacific Ocean during a raging storm. If ever a film was designed to take advantage of 3-D, it show. Scheduled performances start on Friday night at 5 p.m. and a church services goes on Sunday at 9 a.m. Performers include Visions Country Gospel, Ben Kellert, Freedom Seekers, The Lamontagnes, The Tapleys, Re Newed, R&J, Three and Company, Potters Clay, New Song Band, CJ Berube, Generations, Rob Fengstad, Gospel 792, Casual Country, Davina & Friends, Stewart Family Band, Gospel Trubadors and Victoria Street.

He may be a lowly crop duster, but he has a soaring ambition: to win an around-the-world race. Now, if only Dusty Crophopper could overcome his fear of heights. That’s the premise behind Planes, the latest feature out of DisneyToon Studios, a film clearly inspired by the anthropomorphic success of another Disney product, Pixar Studios’ Cars and Cars 2, which together grossed more than $1 billion at the box office. “I’ve flown thousands of miles and I’ve never been anywhere,” Dusty (voiced by comic Dane Cook) laments. But even after narrowly qualifying for the Wings Around the World event — after another competitor cheats and is disqualified — Dusty gets little respect from his fellow competitors, who disdain him as a “farm boy” who reeks of, um, compost. Planes follows the standard Disney formula to the letter: the mean-spirited alpha male villain named Ripslinger (voiced by Roger Craig Smith), who along with two nasty minions, Ned and Zed, will do anything to win against the underdog hero, Dusty, who manages to prevail through sheer pluck and with the help of friends old and new. While the film is clearly aimed at young audiences, there’s also an effort to bring along adults with a script that contains several humorous references that would be way over the heads of youngsters. To wit: naming a colour commentator Brent Mustangburger, a reference to sports personality Brent
