Welcome to the Jungle

BUT REPAVING JUST A PLEASANT COINCIDENCE BY BRENDA KOSSOWAN ADVOCATE STAFF Cyclists racing down through Red Deer during the upcoming Tour of Alberta can expect an especially smooth ride — mostly. City crews are work- BIG NAMES ing on downtown sec- CONFIRMED tions of Ross Street this FOR TOUR B5 week with intentions to move east up the hill on Saturday and continue working eastward from there. The bike race arrives in Red Deer on Thursday, Sept. 5. Unfortunately, one section of Ross Street hill will be left as it is because of underground work that needs to be done first. That section will likely not be paved until next year, said Heather Britton, public works technologist for the city. Cyclists can also expect a much rougher ride when they turn north off Ross Street and onto 48th Avenue, which is not part of this year’s recrowning schedule, said Mayor Morris Flewwelling.

Urban fruit grower Dubber Hanson shows off a Norland apple off one of his fruit trees in his yard in Highland Green in Red Deer. BY SUSAN ZIELINSKI ADVOCATE STAFF Dubber Hanson says he makes a great deep-dish apple pie. He said the secret is plenty of cinnamon. But maybe it’s the fresh fruit from three apple trees in the backyard of his Highland Green home. “This is what got me hooked,� said Hanson, 67, before he plucked off one of the tree’s pale green, medium-sized apples and took a bite. “Just two more days,� he said. That’s when it will be harvest time, judging by the sweetness of the apple in his hand. The tree came with the house when

Hanson bought it 10 years ago. He didn’t know it was an apple tree. When it blossomed in the spring, he expected crab apples. One year, he had to use two-by-fours to prop up its branches that were laden with apples. “There were a thousand apples on it. No exaggeration at all.� Now Hanson has three apple trees in his north-facing backyard. They include a MacIntosh and a Norland. He also has two cherry trees, a plum tree, a pear tree and an apricot tree. “Everyone used to call it the orchard. Now they call it the jungle,� the urban fruit grower said on Thursday. A few apples are scattered on the

ground under his Norland tree. The apples came early this year. “We’ve got fruit dropping. You’ve got to watch them like a hawk.� Only one apricot remains dangling after a bumper crop. His family used to call it “dad’s apricot stick� because it was so spindly and didn’t produce much. “Three months ago we were out here and I said, ‘Come fall, I’m just going to saw it down. Cut it up for firewood.’ “I think that tree can understand English. It went to work,� Hanson said with a laugh.

Blue-green algae advisory puts a damper on activities at Gull Lake A blue-green algae advisory has put a damper on activities on Gull Lake until further notice, bringing an early end to some summer activities. Located about 12 km east of Hwy 2, Gull Lake is surrounded by campgrounds, cabins and campgrounds. Two large provincial parks, including a public beach area, sit on the south and southwest shores of the lake. Alberta Health Services issued a blue-green algae advisory on the lake on Wednesday. Residents and visitors are advised to not drink the water or allow pets to drink the water, not swim or wade or allow pets to swim or wade in the lake and avoid contact with algae along the shoreline. Lynn Henkel, an owner of Summerland Leisure Park, which is on the south side of Hwy 12, across from the south tip of the lake, said they had only one cancellation so far in light of the advisory. “They have children and the beach was the weekend entertainment,� said

Henkel. “That’s the only cancellation I’ve had.� On the whole, though, Henkel said it has been a good summer for the park. People may also want to limit their consumption of whole fish and fish trimmings from the lake, as fish may store toxins in their liver. However, it is safe to consume fish fillets from this lake. Blue-green algae produces a toxin that can cause serious illness to animals and humans who drink or have skin contact with the contaminated water. According to AHS, this advisory will remain in effect until further notice. Symptoms usually appear within one to three hours and are resolved within two days, they include skin irritation, a rash, sore throat, sore red eyes, swollen lips, fever, nausea and vomiting or diarrhea. Boiling blue-green algae contaminated water does not remove the toxins. Other lakes affected by blue-green algae advisories in Central Alberta include Pine Lake, Pigeon Lake, Alix Lake and Haunted Lake.

Hiking Trans Canada Trail brings man back to Red Deer LIFE WAS CHANGED FOREVER WHILE LIVING IN CITY BY MURRAY CRAWFORD ADVOCATE STAFF After hiking more than 13,000 kms across Canada Dana Miese had a chance to see something he hadn’t seen since he was a teenager, the house in Red Deer he lived in when his life was changed forever. Speaking Thursday as he was approaching the pedestrian bridge, formerly the CP rail bridge, from the south Miese said he lived in a white house in what is now Riverside Meadows in the mid-1980s. “The reason I’m doing this is my dad had a brain aneurysm when I was 12 years old in that old white house by the railway track that I’m about to see for the first time in a very long time,” said Miese, 39. Miese’s father was in a coma for five years in an Edmonton hospital after suffering a brain aneurysm. “This is the first time I’ll see the house that changed my life forever,” said Miese. “It took my dad five years to learn how to walk again efficiently, but then he had a stroke and lost the ability to walk. “My dad is my best friend, he’s awesome, nothing gets his spirits down. His favourite thing to do was for him and I to walk. So I told my dad ‘everyone talks the talk, I’m going to walk it and I’m going to walk enough for the both of us.’ Here I am 13,000 kms later.” Starting on May 6, 2008, in Cape Spear, Newfoundland, he set out with a goal to cover 23,000 km on a solo hike across the Trans Canada Trail. He has been to more than 800 cities and cities on his journey. He typically walks six months per year. “In Manitoba, my family was brought over in a Red River boat, dropped off just south of Winnipeg,” said Miese. “Now the old cart trail, into Winkler has been turned into the Trans Canada Trail. I walked through the town where they had to be registered and I walked to where they settled and to this maple tree where my great great grandparents were married.” On Thursday he had walked more than 30 kms and said when he finished he will be happy to have set a

Almost 14,000 km along the Trans Canada Trail, Dana Meise walked over 30 km on the trail in Red Deer Thursday. record for a solo hike, something that will be next to impossible to take away from him. Throughout his walk he has taken video, pictures and written some of his experiences down with plans

to write a book and film a documentary. He hasn’t picked a publisher yet, but has drawn interest and is considering self-publishing.


PAVING: Years in the planning stages It’s a pleasant coincidence that Ross and 55th Streets will both be covered in new pavement when the tour comes into Red Deer, Flewwelling said on Thursday. “It’s part of our crown paving rehabilitation program,” he said. Planning would have been finalized in the spring of last year, subject to budget approvals. “There’s a major plan for all of the road repaving. It’s very comprehensive. When we rebuilt 32nd Street, that one was a biggee — that was about four years in the planning,” said Flewwelling. Even before they reach Red Deer, the racers will ride over freshly-laid chip seal on the portion of Hwy 11 that brings them into the city from Hwy 815. Val Mellesmoen, marketing, communications and broadcast manager for the Tour of Alberta, said the peloton association does require that all road surfaces be paved. Tour organizers have not asked any communities along the route to upgrade their road surfaces, said Mellesmoen. “In general, almost any paved highway in Alberta meets the standard. Any kind of paving that might be happening in and around that area is coincidence, probably,” she said. Britton said she did not have a detailed schedule for the Ross Street work on Thursday afternoon, but will post information on the city’s website as that schedule is made final. Motorists can check for updates at and should also pay attention to signs in the area for information about pending road closures. The 175-km Stage 2 of the Tour of Alberta comes into Red Deer on Sept. 5, with racers to complete three loops once they enter the city. They will hit top speed heading down Ross Street, then turn north on 48th Avenue and east on 55th Street to climb the Michener Hill, before heading south on 40th Avenue and back to Ross Street, ultimately finishing in the city centre. Access to the city centre will be limited during

FRUIT: Ripening fast The small pear tree in the backyard won’t have much fruit this year. But one of two trees in front of his house has about 100 pears ripening. “The pears are small. You just pull off the stem and eat the whole thing. The core is so tender. They are absolutely delicious.” He can’t understand why people would plant anything but fruit trees. He said summers without fruit on his trees are the worst. A late frost can kill blooms. Hail can also knock fruit around, marring its skin, even though it still tastes good.

“You never know what to expect. The fruit this year is a lot smaller, but I’ve never seen it ripen so fast.” The plum tree in his backyard didn’t produce this year. Harvests can be unpredictable, he said. “All of sudden — wham — you’ve got fruit just dripping off.” Hanson said he’d like to see more people grow fruit in Red Deer. They could learn from each other and have someone to turn to when they encounter problems. “We need to have some dialogue around this town.” Maybe someone has experience with kiwi. Hanson has been waiting three years for the vine in his front yard to blossom. “I haven’t got anything. Hopefully one of these days I’ll get kiwi fruit.”

Province offers to buy homes in floodways BY THE CANADIAN PRESS


A flooded neighborhood in High River on Saturday, June 29, 2013. The owners of about 250 homes in six southern communities devastated by flooding are being given the option to sell out to the provincial government. “We don’t have a choice. We don’t have a say.” Chris Anger and his wife Betty were in the neighbourhood, but after the flood they moved back into their first home, which they had been using as a rental property. Their tenants moved out and Betty Anger was scrubbing the floor Thursday trying to complete the cleanup. The rental house should be eligible for the provincial buyout. “I guess it’s better than nothing, isn’t it?” said Chris Anger. “My wife wants to move. She wants ... out of High River, but she’s content coming back here for the time being.” Anger said, no matter what, he and his wife won’t be returning to the Hamptons. He said the aggravation isn’t worth it and he’s tempted to let the bank take the house. He doubts it would sell even if it were rebuilt. “Sell over in the Hamptons? I don’t think that will

Foster parents unaware girl had been sick before: judge BY THE CANADIAN PRESS HOBBEMA — A report from an inquiry into an Alberta baby’s death says the child’s medical history should have been forwarded to her foster family. But provincial court Judge Bart Rosborough says that still might not have prevented the one-year-old girl’s death. The judge notes that the foster parents weren’t informed that the girl had been treated for respiratory problems, including pneumonia. The baby, who is not identified, died of pneumonia in March 2009 while in the care of an agency that provides child-welfare services to the Samson Cree Nation south of Edmonton. The child had been sick, but her foster family assumed it wasn’t serious. Her caregivers didn’t seek medical attention until she was discovered not breathing in her crib. Rosborough acknowledges in his report that a previous case of pneumonia doesn’t make a person more likely to get pneumonia again. He also notes that the foster parents should have realized earlier that she was seriously ill and should have been better trained. Still, he writes, failure to inform the foster family of the girl’s medical information was the factor that put her most at risk. “Failure to observe this requirement should trigger an escalating series of notifications up to the director level,” Rosborough writes in his report, which was released Thursday.



Huge homecoming splash: Calgary Zoo hippos return after forced out by flood CALGARY — The Calgary Zoo’s two hippos have returned to their home two months after they were forced out by flooding. The zoo says Sparky and Lobi have returned to their pool at the African Savannah exhibit. The complex was badly damaged in June floods that swamped Calgary and much of southern Alberta. Water levels rose high enough for the dangerous herbivores to swim over the top of their enclosure and roam freely about the African Savannah building. Zookeepers feared the animals could swim out of the building onto zoo grounds and escape. Staff put up barriers to contain the hulking hippos. The zoo has only partially reopened since it shut down during the flood. It has had to find new homes for dozens of animals, has shut down several buildings and laid off about 300 employees.

Alberta sends crews to U.S. to fight raging wildfires burning in three states EDMONTON — Alberta is sending teams of experienced firefighters to the U.S. to help fight raging wildfires burning in three states. The province says it is sending a total of 59 firefighters to Montana, Oregon and Idaho. They include crews that rappel out of helicopters and others who are trained to attack fires as soon as they break out. The province has an agreement with these states to share firefighters during emergencies. The wildfire threat in Alberta now ranges from low to moderate.

It says the girl’s birth parents had serious addictions and the mother voluntarily surrendered custody to child-welfare officials after bringing the baby to hospital with pneumonia in December 2008. The mother had been “diligent” in seeking medical treatment for her daughter, who “was noted to cry a great deal and would experience ’wheezing’ or mild difficulty with her breathing from time to time.” When the Kasohkowew Child Wellness Society received information that the mother was using cocaine and was pregnant with another child, the girl was transferred into the care of a woman who worked for the society, and her husband. Rosborough says that should have been considered a conflict of interest and should not be repeated. “It is often natural to repose trust and confidence in those with whom one works. Standards can be relaxed and safeguards not observed. That may well have occurred in this case.” Rosborough also notes there was testimony during the inquiry that the Kasohkowew society lacked adequate resources and had management troubles. There was testimony that staff had used agency funds for cultural activities and to attend out-ofcountry training. Rosborough says the inquiry was not the proper place to investigate management issues at Kasohkowew, but he adds he was convinced a review is necessary. He also says the province should investigate what he calls the “significant disparity” in the level of funding provided for children off and on reserves. The fires burning in these states have forced the evacuation of more than 1,250 homes.

Police dog helps nab Alberta Jaguar driver following high speed chase WHITECOURT — A suspected drug dealer is parked in an Alberta jail after leading police on a chase that involved a speedy Jaguar and a slower but determined police dog. RCMP and Alberta Sheriff traffic units tried to stop the luxury car on Monday night near Whitecourt, but the driver drove off at speeds exceeding 230 km/h. Police say the Jaguar ended up going off the road, and a suspect fled on foot into a forest. Officers tracked him down with the help of the police dog, which helped police make the arrest. Police say they seized a loaded handgun and quantities of meth, cocaine, heroin and oxycodone pills. Brian Buxton of Sylvan Lake faces dangerous driving, drug trafficking and weapons charges.

Bookkeeper accused of stealing $1 million from Alberta oilfield company RED DEER — A former bookkeeper for an oilfield company in central Alberta has been charged with stealing more than $1 million from her employer. Blackfalds RCMP began to investigate in October 2012 into a report that an employee appeared to be altering financial documents and taking money from a business in Red Deer county. Police did not name the business or where it is located. Mounties say the employee was employed by the company from 2006 to 2011 and was in charge of bookkeeping, accounts receivable, payroll, and day end returns. It is alleged the employee stole the money over the five years she worked for the company. Shelley Davidson, who is 36, of Cochrane, is scheduled to appear in provincial court in Red Deer on Sept. 20 on charges of theft and fraud.

happen in 100 years. “We can rebuild all we want and we will never get out what we put into it and I don’t think anybody in the Hamptons — I don’t think anybody in High River — is going to sell for a long, long time.” Griffiths said he realizes Hampton residents aren’t going to be pleased with Thursday’s announcement. “This a policy to deal with the floodway. It’s the fastest-moving water that’s the most dangerous,” he said. “The Hamptons are neither in the floodway or the flood fringe. I know they suffered damage. We have the (recovery) program which will help them rebuild their homes — tear them down and rebuild them — because that is a viable neighbourhood and a viable community,” he added. “I know that some of them are frustrated and they don’t want to be there, but they have the option of rebuilding their homes and moving if they like.”

Colourful quilts from Saskatchewan heading to flood evacuees BY THE CANADIAN PRESS MOOSE JAW, Sask. — More than 230 handmade quilts are heading to southern Alberta as a gift of love to people who lost their homes in the floods in June. Arlyce Thompson, who owns Quilter’s Haven in Moose Jaw, Sask., put out the call for quilts after hearing of the devastating losses in the town of High River. The entire town was evacuated and hundreds of people are still out of their flood-damaged homes and living in temporary trailer camps. Quilters responded from all over Saskatchewan and even a few from Ontario. Thompson estimates that they have over $160,000 worth of merchandise to give to the people of High River. She and other volunteers loaded up her van Thursday and she and her 87-year-old mother plan to drive to High River on Friday to deliver the quilts. “It started because I felt sorry for myself because the same day that they were flooded, I got a flood in my basement in Caronport,” Thompson said. “Then the next day I heard about how bad it was in High River. You hear about so many of them who lost everything and they didn’t even have a blanket or quilt to cover themselves with.”

It’s an environmental choice.


BRAGG CREEK — The Alberta government is offering homeowners living in floodways a chance to get out. The owners of about 250 homes in six southern communities devastated by flooding in June are being given the option to sell out to the provincial government. Even if the houses weren’t damaged, owners are eligible for a buyout worth the tax-assessed value of their home. The cost of the program could run as high as $175 million. “We know that floodway development is dangerous. Development in these areas puts lives at risk and is an ongoing risk to taxpayers as well,” Municipal Affairs Minister Doug Griffiths said Thursday. “I’ve equated it many times to building on the train tracks. This new policy will allow Albertans in the impacted floodways another option to rebuild their lives and will provide protection for all Albertans going forward.” Griffiths said the government will pay 100 per cent of this year’s property-tax assessed value. More than 100 of the affected homes are in High River, 57 are in Medicine Hat, 50 are in Calgary and another 36 are in Bragg Creek. Any homes the government buys out are likely to be destroyed or sold and moved from the flood area, Griffiths said. “The way that this program is set up it is my anticipation that there will be very, very few people who will not take the 100 per cent assessment — take their value and move to another location,” he said. “We want to make sure we take the property ... the home ... out of the floodway. Whether or not that means the home gets torn down or picked up and relocated ... we’ll work on that on a case-by-case basis.” The offer does not apply to the hard-hit Hamptons neighbourhood in High River. After the Highwood River overflowed its banks, water filled the area and settled to create an extensive lake. Homes sat under water for several weeks and will need to be torn down. Some owners there have said they want a buyout, so they have the financial freedom to make a decision about their future. “I would have taken (a buyout),” said Jamie Ellice, a real estate agent who built his home in the Hamptons just four months before the flood. “I’m not asking for the world. I just want what I had on June 19. I want it back.” Ellice said the government could have simplified things with a buyout in the Hamptons instead of insisting the homes be remediated and made safe for habitation. Most are expected to be torn down.

A line has been crossed BUT THERE’S ANOTHER STORY BEHIND THE LETTER OF HATE — AND ANOTHER SOLUTION I would like to see an interview published, with a spokesperson from the Ontario Crown Attorney’s Office, explaining why delivering a very disturbing letter to a grandmother in Newcastle is not a hate crime. The one-page letter, stuffed into Brenda Millson’s mailbox, has been widely quoted, but the full copy GREG available online shows how NEIMAN much of it has been left out of the coverage and follow-up. This note really does read like something a CSI-type crime series scriptwriter would dream up. Max is a 13-year-old with autism who sometimes lives with his grandma in the Ontario town. He was described in a venomous computer-printed letter to his caretaker as “your wild animal kid.” In most jurisdictions, describing other people as subhuman would raise a red flag of hatred. Especially if you advocate — with


multiple!!!!!!! hits!!!!!! to the EXCLAMATION KEY!!!!!!!!!! — that the boy be killed. “You had a retarded kid, deal with it .... properly!!!!!” says the letter. How do you deal with a “retarded” kid (or, in this case, grandchild)? The letter answers: “They should take whatever nonretarded body parts he possess and donate it to science.” If not, the letter goes on to imply, Max is no good to anyone. If you were a lawyer in the Ontario Crown Attorney’s Office, wouldn’t you consider this letter to be hate, expressed in a criminal way? In Ontario, they must set the bar pretty high. The author, signed: “One pissed off mother!!!!!” even describes her hatred, for the lawyers in the Ontario Crown Attorney’s Office who might have missed it. “I HATE people like you who believe, just because you have a special needs kid, you are entitled to special treatment!!!! GOD!!!!!!” When you use “I hate” with the capslock key down, while describing a child with a disability as not human, something that should be killed to harvest his organs, and expressing direct hatred as well to people who take care of disabled children ... well, I’m not a lawyer, but I can see where a line has been crossed. Finding the writer shouldn’t be too hard. Police just need to knock on a

few doors and ask questions of neighbours. A home within earshot of Millson’s back yard, where Max often vocalizes either happiness or discontent, if it has normal children in it, would probably provide the suspect. And then, rather than having the entire world just rant at someone’s gross insensitivity, we could possibly see some healing occur. From decades of dealing with stories of tragedy, both in the Advocate newsroom and as a volunteer for people with “special needs,” I know there’s another perspective here that isn’t being addressed. On a TV sitcom, someone would say at this point: “Someone needs a hug.” In its barest essence, I’d say that’s probably true here. Obviously, someone isn’t coping with his or her life right now. Finding and confronting the writer would probably be the first, most important step toward a whole heap of good. Think about the global outrage that has followed coverage of this news story. I’m sure the writer of the letter has considered it at length by now. That’s the easy part. But if we are outraged at this level of insensitivity to the lives of Max and the people who care for him, we are bound to at least try to understand the forces that would drive someone to put

such evil thoughts onto paper, fold up the letter and hand deliver it to another person’s door. That’s the hard part. For all we know, this letter could be a thoughtless prank gone horribly wrong. If that’s the case, the writer needs to be found, and some new information delivered to the writer. Like, about the consequences of expressing hatred and the harm that it does. Right now, police are said to be investigating other avenues than a prosecution under hate laws. That’s a bit of good news. The Crown attorneys dropped the ball here and though I can’t see what police could do to pick it up again, at least a simple look through the neighbourhood would identify the writer. But if, as a society, we are looking for better outcomes than simply identifying and punishing someone, we’re dropping the ball as well. Because behind that hateful letter, there is someone who needs a chance to confess, repent — and even to ask forgiveness. Perhaps even, someone who, with the right information, could become a potential friend. At the very least, someone with a personal story that can add a chapter to the one we’ve seen so far.

Queue jumping inquiry a waste WE SPENT $10 MILLION JUST TO STATE THE BLINDINGLY OBVIOUS BY ROBERT GERST SPECIAL TO THE ADVOCATE On Wednesday, Justice John Vertes released his Health Services Preferential Access Inquiry Report on allegations of health-care queue jumping in Alberta. The inquiry’s terms of reference ordered it to consider: ● Whether improper preferential access to publicly funded health services is occurring. ● If there is evidence of improper preferential access to publicly funded health services occurring, make recommendations to prevent improper access in the future. We knew the answer to the first question before the inquiry spent its first nickel. Yes, it’s occurring. But probably not as much as had been hyped in the media. And what were the conclusions of the inquiry report? Yes, it’s occurring. But not as much as had been hyped in the media. Ten million dollars to confirm the hopelessly obvious. But what about the second question? The value of this report lies in the recommendations. Recommendations designed to ensure what largely didn’t happen before will never happen again. Here are all 12 recommendations with some clarifications. ● Strengthen the queue-jumping provisions of the Health Care Protection Act. We need to better define and broaden the scope of what does, and does not, constitute queue jumping. Right, because those working the system weren’t quite clear on the definitions. ● Expand whistleblower protection. Whatever one thinks of Liberal Leader Raj Sherman’s politics, he was a whistleblower on this affair. The inquiry made sure no one will be so stupid as to act as a whistleblower again by singling him out and stating his allegations were unfounded. Although the inquiry waited all the way to page two before doing so. ● Clarify the scope and application of profes-

sional courtesy. Doctors shouldn’t let other doctors get preferential treatment, unless it’s really necessary, in that case its fine. Whew, that clarifies it. ● Reduce wait times. A recommendation that will actually do something. After all, you can’t have queue jumping if you don’t have a queue. The inquiry didn’t add much detail here because, you know, AHS has done such a bang-up job at this so far. ● Develop and implement wait list management strategies. The first component of which is “standardized concepts and terms.” Oh I get it, there was queue jumping because we hadn’t standardized the concept of queue jumping. ● Develop standardized referral procedures and booking systems. Operations management experts, queuing theory and existing empirical evidence all suggest this will make things worse. So it’s perfect for AHS. ● Consider creating the position of Health Advocate. The advocate will provide “advice and advocacy assistance to patients.” To do what? Jump the queue! ● Develop a policy on courtesy calls. When was the last time developing a policy on an issue actually fixed the issue? Expect the same here. ● Develop a policy on special accommodation during a pandemic.

What’s the distinction between ‘special accommodation’ and ‘preferential treatment?’ Whatever it turns out to be, let’s call it the Calgary Flames difference. ● Develop policies for the private patient path. The report states that it is unclear whether the private patient path is a problem or not. But as long as we’re creating policies, let’s make one for this, too. ● Strengthen access, triage and booking procedures. In other words, do what we are doing now, but do it better. This is a group hug recommendation. Next, world peace. I recommend everyone just get along. ● Develop a policy on preferential access. Doctors and nurses didn’t know that queue jumping was wrong. This has just been a gigantic misunderstanding. We were simply lacking a policy to make it clear. Next, a policy on claiming expenses for personal butler services. Wait, no, we got that one. I agree that it pays sometimes to admit the obvious. But $10 million? For this?

Illegal spying may have taken place: report CRITICS URGE HARPER TO ENSURE FEDERAL SPY AGENCY NOT PRYING INTO CANADIAN LIVES BY THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA — Critics are urging the Harper government to lift the veil that shrouds Canada’s electronic eavesdropping agency in the wake of an overseer’s report that suggests ordinary Canadians may have been illegally spied on. In his final report to Parliament before he leaves his post, commissioner Robert Decary says some of the spying activities at Communications Security Establishment Canada may have affected Canadians in the last year. However, thanks to poor recordkeeping, Decary — a retired judge who has been the agency’s independent watchdog since 2010 — said he can’t be sure. “A number of CSEC records relating to these activities were unclear or incomplete,” said the report, tabled Wednesday.

“After in-depth and lengthy review, I was unable to reach a definitive conclusion about compliance or non-compliance with the law.” CSEC says, however, that it did not break the rules. “The commissioner’s statement about a lack of records is a reference to a single review of a small number of records gathered in the early 2000s, in relation to activities directed at a remote foreign location,” the agency said in an emailed response. “This conclusion does not indicate that CSEC has acted unlawfully. It indicates that certain material upon which the commissioner would have relied for his assessment was incomplete or not available for a number of reasons.” The report comes amid startling revelations about the interception of Internet communications from Americans and British citizens by their respective governments. But at least one analyst likens De-

cary’s findings to “accounting errors” amid massive amounts of electronic data. Canadians need not be alarmed by the report’s findings, said Ray Boisvert, until last year a deputy director with the Canadian Security Intelligence Service. Inadvertently tracking a few innocent Canadians is inevitable, considering the piles of information being sifted through government computers, said Boisvert, who spent 30 years with CSIS and the RCMP. “Given the massive volume of millions and billions of pieces of data tracked, those are kind of like accounting errors,” Boisvert told The Canadian Press. “Is there a grand conspiracy to dupe Canadians or to pry (into their personal lives)? No, absolutely not.” The report nonetheless contradicts statements made in June by Peter MacKay, the defence minister at the time,

who denied the government was spying on Canadians, NDP defence critic Jack Harris said Thursday. Any illegal snooping on Canadian citizens “has to stop,” Harris said. “Minister of National Defence Rob Nicholson needs to release all information related to this spying immediately,” he added, noting that the resumption of Parliament is being put off until at least October. “The Harper government can’t continue its practice of hiding, prorogation or not.” Julie Di Mambro, a spokeswoman for Nicholson, said the government takes the privacy of its citizens seriously, and that targeting of Canadians by the spy agency is not tolerated. “The privacy of Canadians is of utmost importance,” Di Mambro said in an email. “CSEC is prohibited by law from directing its activities at Canadians anywhere in the world or at any person in Canada.”



PM tries to strike balance between economic, social development BY THE CANADIAN PRESS


MP Olivia Chow (right) looks on as Sarah Layton and her daughter Beatrice sit on a bronze statue of Jack Layton, the former NDP leader, after its unveiling at Toronto’s ferry terminal on Thursday. The revealing of the statue, which is a gift from the Ontario Federation of Labour, coincided with the city renaming the terminal for the ferry that links the city to Toronto Island after the popular politician. Chow says the statue and the renaming of the ferry terminal were huge honours and would have meant a lot to her husband, who died Aug. 22, 2011. “Being in this place, the starting place for so many wonderful journeys, brings back a flood of joyous memories,” Chow told those gathered for the unveiling. Chow said she and Layton were married on Toronto Island 25 years ago and that a tandem bicycle was a wedding present she and Layton gave each other.

Trudeau unapologetic for using marijuana BY THE CANADIAN PRESS QUEBEC — Justin Trudeau says, yes, he’s inhaled a few times and, yes, he was already a member of Parliament the last time he did and, no, he has no regrets about it. The Liberal leader laid out his past marijuana use in a lengthy interview and in an exchange with reporters in which he made no apologies. He said he’s smoked pot five or six times in his life — including three years ago during a backyard get-together — and never really liked it much. Now that he’s come clean about using pot, he said, he’d like to move on and talk about the hundreds of thousands of people who have a criminal record for it. Trudeau sought to shift the focus onto his policy of legalizing marijuana when asked by reporters about his drug use and whether it had been a mistake. “No, it wasn’t a mistake,” Trudeau told journalists in Quebec City. “I do not consume cannabis. I am not a big consumer at all. I tried it... “I’ve never tried other types of hard

drugs. I am not a consumer of marijuana but, yes, I’ve already tried it. I used it — maybe five or six times in my life.” He said he believes public opinion has moved on and he’s confident that Canadians will judge him less harshly than his political opponents. What matters now, Trudeau said, is ending a marijuana prohibition policy that he says costs law enforcement $500 million a year and has left 475,000 people with criminal records since the Conservatives took office in 2006. He has said that issue touched his own family. Trudeau originally made the marijuana admission in a candid interview with the Huffington Post, in which he also revealed that his youngest brother, Michel, was charged with marijuana possession shortly before his 1998 death in an avalanche. He said he’s smoked pot only five or six times in his life, never enjoyed it much, and doesn’t do it anymore. He said he was never known as the pot aficionado in the family. Trudeau also told the website that because he never smoked much he was never the one among his group of friends to buy the weed.

He said he last smoked marijuana about three years ago at his house in Montreal, outside on a patio by the pool. “We had a few good friends over for a dinner party, our kids were at their grandmother’s for the night, and one of our friends lit a joint and passed it around. I had a puff,” he was quoted saying. Trudeau was elected to Parliament in 2008. Trudeau’s admission will doubtless give more fodder to the Conservatives, who’ve been pointing to his support for legalizing and regulating marijuana as evidence that he doesn’t have the judgment to be prime minister.

RANKIN INLET, Nunavut — Stephen Harper looked to strike a balance between the enormous social deficit of the Far North and the region’s overwhelming resource potential when he sat down with Inuit leaders from across the country on Thursday. Much of his week-long tour of the Arctic and northern territories has been geared toward laying the foundation for an anticipated mining boom that’s partially the result of a warming climate. There’s been cash for training in this impoverished labour market, specific programs for education in mining, and a $100 million renewal of a federal geo-mapping program meant to point resource companies toward potentially rich veins — measures that will play well in southern Canada. Absent from the hop-scotching calvacade of economic initiatives has been discussion of the crushing poverty of many northern communities, the lack of adequate housing and social ills, including sky-high rates of suicide. Sitting down with Inuit leaders from across the country, Harper attempted to reconcile the disconnect. “We have, I think, all shared goals in seeing strong, healthy, prosperous Inuit families and communities,” he said. “We see progress being made, but we also recognize there are big changes in terms of the rapidity in historic development, stresses on the environment, social challenges that we all have. But I think everybody here today is extremely positive about the potential opportunities for the next generation of young Inuit people.” Critics accuse the prime minister of single-mindedly championing the notion that a rising tide of economic prosperity can lift a community while forgetting that some individuals to drown. Not so, Harper said. “Economic development really is critical to social development,” he said. “That said, we don’t rely on that entirely throughout this country, not just in the North. Governments support vital ranges of social services for people, health, education, you know, you go through the list. These remain critical things for governments to do.”

Foreign fighters blamed for gas attack BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


DAMASCUS, Syria — Syria’s deputy prime minister told The Associated Press that foreign fighters and their international backers are to blame for a purported chemical weapons attack near Damascus that the opposition says killed at least 100 people, the deadliest such attack in Syria’s civil war. Government forces, meanwhile, pummeled the targeted rebel strongholds where the alleged attack occurred with airstrikes and artillery for a second day, violence that was likely to complicate any swift investigation into the mysterious circumstances surrounding the deaths. Deputy Prime Minister Qadri Jamil’s comments were part of a government campaign to use the horror over the deaths to boost its narrative about the conflict — that Syria is under assault by foreign Islamic radicals. It is an argument that has powerful resonance with the Syrian public as the presence of militants fighting alongside Syria’s rebels increases. Rebels blamed the attack on the Syrian military, saying toxic chemicals were used in artillery barrag-

es on the area known as eastern Ghouta on Wednesday. Jamil did not directly acknowledge that toxic gas was used against the eastern suburbs but denied allegations by anti-government activists that President Bashar Assad’s forces were behind the assault. The murky nature of the purported attacks, and the difficulty of gaining access to the sites amid the carnage of Syria’s war and government restrictions on foreign media, has made it impossible to verify the claims. But they have fueled calls in the West for greater action against Assad’s regime as amateur videos and photos showed images of the dead, including scores of lifeless children, wrapped in white cloths and lying shoulder to shoulder, while others struggled to breathe. Many pointed to the fact that their pale skin was unmarked by any wounds as evidence that it was a chemical attack. The U.S., Britain and France along with a host of other countries demanded that a team of United Na-

tions experts already in Syria be granted immediate access to the site. The timing of Wednesday’s attack — four days after the UN team’s arrival — has also raised questions about why the regime would use chemical agents now. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon added his voice to the calls on Thursday, urging the Syrian government to allow the UN team now in Damascus to swiftly investigate the alleged use of chemical weapons outside the capital. President Barack Obama has called chemical weapons a “red line” for potential military action, and in June, the U.S. said it had conclusive evidence that Assad’s regime had used chemical weapons against opposition forces. But it has so far shown no inclination to intervene. State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said Thursday the administration was unable to conclusively determine the use of chemical weapons but added “we are focused every minute of every day since these events happened yesterday on doing everything possible within our power to nail down the facts.”


In this courtroom sketch, Staff Sgt. Robert Bales, left, appears before Judge Col. Jeffery Nance in a courtroom at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Wash. on Tuesday during a sentencing hearing in the slayings of 16 civilians killed during pre-dawn raids on two villages on March 11, 2012.

U.S. soldier sorry for killing 16 Afghan civilians BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS JOINT BASE LEWIS-MCCHORD, Wash. — The U.S. soldier who massacred 16 Afghan civilians during pre-dawn raids last year apologized for the first time for his “act of cowardice,” but could not explain the atrocities to a military jury considering whether he should one day have a shot at freedom. Staff Sgt. Robert Bales said he would bring back the victims of his March 11, 2012, attack “in a heartbeat,” if possible. “I’m truly, truly sorry to those people whose families got taken away,” he said in a mostly steady voice. “I can’t comprehend their loss. I think about it every time I look at my kids.” Bales, 40, did not recount specifics of the horrors, but described the killings as an “act of cowardice, behind a mask of fear, bullshit and bravado.” He said he hoped his words would be translated for the nine villagers who travelled from Afghanistan to testify against him — none of whom elected to be in court to hear his words. The father of two from Washington state was serving his fourth combat deployment when he left his outpost at Camp Belambay, in Kandahar Province, in the middle of the night to attack two villages, exhibiting an unimaginable brutality as he slaughtered men, women and children screaming for his mercy. The massacre prompted such angry protests that the U.S. temporarily halted combat operations, and it was three weeks before Army investigators could reach the crime scene. Bales pleaded guilty in June, and the six-member jury is deciding whether his life sentence should include the chance of parole. If Bales is sentenced to life with the possibility of parole, he would be eligible in 20 years, but there’s no guarantee he would receive it. He will receive life with parole unless at least five of the six jurors say otherwise.

Jury starts deliberating on Fort Hood rampage FORT HOOD, Texas — The Army psychiatrist accused in the deadliest mass shooting ever on a U.S. military base turned down his last chance Thursday to defend himself before a verdict, while military prosecutors asked jurors for a unanimous murder conviction in the 2009 Fort Hood rampage. “The defence chooses not to make a closing statement,” Nidal Hasan told the judge — ending a speedy trial in which insisted on representing himself but offered little defence. Prosecutors laid out a detailed roadmap of their case during their closing argument, saying there was no question that Hasan planned and carried out the attack. “The facts I laid out to you give you only one option,” the prosecutor, Col. Steve Henricks, told jurors. “The accused without a doubt — without any doubt at all — had a premeditated design to kill.” Jurors began deliberating Thursday and were dismissed for the day after several hours. Deliberations are scheduled to resume Friday morning. A unanimous conviction would allow prosecutors to seek the death penalty against Hasan, who faces numerous counts of premeditated murder and attempted premeditated murder for the attack that killed 13 people and wounded more than 30 at the Texas Army post on Nov. 5, 2009.

Mexico officials find mass grave east of capital TLALMANALCO, Mexico — Mexican authorities said Thursday they have found a mass grave east of Mexico City and are testing to determine if it holds some of the 12 people who vanished from a bar in an upscale area of the capital nearly three months ago. At least seven corpses had been recovered from the grave in Tlalmanalco, Mexico City prosecutor Rodolfo Rios told reporters at a news conference. He said the victims could not be identified from clothing, and the cause of death had not been determined. The federal Attorney General’s Office said agents had received information about possible illegal weapons on the property known locally as Rancho La Negra, and obtained a search warrant. When they started looking around, they discovered the grave, Renato Sales Heredia, an assistant attorney general, told reporters. The young bar-goers vanished from the afterhours Heaven club at midday May 26, just a block from Mexico City’s leafy Paseo de Reforma, the capital’s equivalent of the Champs-Elysees. Some of their relatives showed up on the property being excavated, crying and covering their faces from the media.

‘I am Chelsea Manning’ SOLDIER CONVICTED IN LEAKS CASE WANTS TO LIVE AS A WOMAN BEHIND BARS BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS FORT MEADE, Md. — Three years after rocking the Pentagon by leaking a mountain of secrets, Bradley Manning created a whole new set of potential complications for the military Thursday by asking to be known as a woman named Chelsea and to undergo hormone treatment. Manning’s gender-identity struggle — a sense of being a woman trapped in a man’s body — was brought up by the defence at the court-martial, and a photo of the soldier in a blond wig and lipstick was submitted as evidence. But the latest twist, announced the morning after Manning was sentenced to 35 years in the military prison at Fort Leavenworth, Kan., surprised many and confronted the Pentagon with questions about where and how the Army private is to be imprisoned. The former Army intelligence analyst disclosed the decision in a statement provided to NBC’s Today show. “As I transition into this next phase of my life, I want everyone to know the real me. I am Chelsea Manning. I am a female. Given the way that I feel, and have felt since childhood, I want to begin hormone therapy as soon as possible,” the statement read. The statement asked people to use the feminine pronoun when referring to Manning. It was signed “Chelsea E. Manning” and included a handwritten signature. The Associated Press Stylebook calls for use of the pronoun that is either an individual’s preference or is consistent with the way the person lives publicly. The news agency said


In this undated file photo provided by the U.S. Army, Pfc. Bradley Manning poses for a photo wearing a wig and lipstick. Manning plans to live as a woman named Chelsea and wants to begin hormone therapy as soon as possible, the soldier said Thursday, a day after he was sentenced to 35 years in prison for sending classified material to WikiLeaks. in a statement it would let that “be our guide as this story develops.” However, Leavenworth spokesman George Marcec said later Thursday that if Manning wants to go by Chelsea in prison, a name change would have to be approved in court and then a petition submitted with the Army to change its records. The AP said it was seeking additional details from Manning’s attorney, David Coombs, and until then would use only gender-neutral terms in reference to Manning. Coombs did not respond to email and telephone messages

but told Today he hopes Leavenworth officials will accommodate Manning’s request for hormone treatment, which typically involves high doses of estrogen to promote breast development and other female characteristics. However, George Wright, an Army spokesman at the Pentagon, said the Army does not provide such treatment or sexreassignment surgery. He said soldiers behind bars are given access to psychiatrists and other mental health professionals. A lawsuit could be in the offing. Coombs said he will do “ev-

Tour bus overturns along freeway; more than 50 injured LOS ANGELES — A tour bus carrying gamblers to an Indian casino overturned on a Southern California freeway Thursday, injuring more than 50 people on board, authorities said. The bus went through a chain-link fence off the side of Interstate 210 around 10 a.m. and ended up on its side down a dirt embankment between the freeway and railroad tracks in Irwindale. Ambulances and helicopters converged on the freeway in eastern Los Angeles County and firefighters laid out red, yellow and green tarps to evaluate the injured. Fifty-two people, mostly elderly, were hurt in the rollover with minor injuries, according to doctors. Eight needed immediate medical attention including five who were flown by helicopter to Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center. The patients, who suffered blunt force trauma, didn’t speak English and needed translators.

Disgraced Chinese politician mounts feisty defence JINAN, China — Disgraced politician Bo Xilai denied taking $3.5 million in bribes from businessmen and cross-examined one of them with a lawyer’s precision, launching an unexpectedly spirited defence at the trial aimed at capping China’s biggest scandal in decades. It appeared to be a last-ditch effort by the former political star to repair his carefully cultivated reputation as a man of the people. Prosecutors ended months of suspense about the details of his charges, rolling out accusations that featured a villa in France, a hotair balloon project and a football club, giving a glimpse of how colourful corruption can look in China. Bo’s verbal sparring displayed the mediasavvy politician’s keen sense of how to portray himself well in tough situations. He thanked the judge for letting him speak, asserted that he was pressured into making a confession and was selectively contrite.

erything in my power” to make sure Manning gets his way. And the American Civil Liberties Union, the Human Rights Campaign and other advocates for gays, bisexuals and transgender people said Manning deserves the treatment. “In the United States, it is illegal to deny health care to prisoners. That is fairly settled law,” said Mara Keisling, executive director of the National Center for Transgender Equality. “Now the Army can claim this isn’t health care, but they have the weight of the medical profession and science against them.” A Federal Bureau of Prisons policy implemented last year requires federal prisons to develop treatment plans, including hormone treatment if necessary, for inmates diagnosed with gender-identity disorder. But the bureau oversees only civilian prisons. Manning’s case appeared to be the first time the therapy had come up for a military prisoner. Manning, 25, was convicted of Espionage Act violations and other crimes for turning more than 700,000 classified military and diplomatic documents over to the secrets-spilling website WikiLeaks. Coombs said the soldier could be paroled from prison in as little as seven years. After sentencing, Manning was returned Thursday to Leavenworth. Leavenworth is an all-male prison. But the staff has some leeway to separate soldiers from the other inmates based on the risk to themselves and others, Marcec said. Manning would not be allowed to wear a wig or bra, and would have to meet the military standard for hair, Marcec said.

ADDING SAFETY STAFF Hall of Fame defenceman Brian Leetch and former You Can Play executive director Patrick Burke are joining the NHL’s department of player safety. Announced by the NHL on Thursday, Leetch is taking the position of manager of player safety that had been held by Rob Blake, who was named assistant GM of the Los Angeles Kings last month. Burke will serve in the new position of director of player safety. Leetch, who spent the majority of his career with the New York Rangers, ranks eighth among NHL defencemen with 1,028 career points. Burke, a former Philadelphia Flyers scout, is one of the founding partners of the You Can Play Project, which fights sexual orientation discrimination in sports.

SUTTER LIKES MAKEUP OF THIS SEASON’S REBELS AND EXPECTS TO SEE TEAM IMPROVE FROM LAST YEAR BY GREG MEACHEM ADVOCATE SPORTS EDITOR Onwards and upwards. Upwards, not only in terms of moving up in the Western Hockey League standings, but also in height and weight. Red Deer Rebels general manager/head coach Brent Sutter fully expects his 201314 club to improve on last season’s fourthplace finish in the Eastern Conference and advance further than the second round of the playoffs. He likes what his veteran players offer, and yet he knows more that mere talent is needed if the team is to experience success this season. The club’s lack of size and grit was never more apparent than in last spring’s second-round playoff loss to the larger Calgary Hitmen. “Our expectations are high, and yet you look at the makeup of our team and you certainly see good and bad,” Sutter said Thursday. “You see where your needs and wants are to get you to where you can be an elite team at this level and compete to win. I think we saw in the second round of the playoffs last season what we’re missing and it showed as different times throughout the year. “We want to get bigger and tougher and bring in more character, yet we certainly want to have speed and skill too. But skill is over-rated if you don’t have the other

aspects to go with it , and those are the aspects we had to improve on.” To that end, Sutter acquired his nephew — 20-year forward Lukas Sutter, who last season played at 214 pounds — from the Saskatoon Blades in June, and this week picked up six-foot-four defenceman Spencer Morse from the Moose Jaw Warriors. In addition, he’s invited six-foot-two, 181-pound rearguard Kirk Bear, six-five forward Ian Parker and six-one and sixthree forwards Jordan Ross and Duncan Campbell to training camp, which opens Saturday at the Centrium with a 90-minute rookie session starting at 7:30 p.m. Bear, an 18-year-old who has been listed by the Rebels, had 22 points (3-19) in 44 games with the midget AAA Notre Dame Argos last season. Parker, 17, played for the junior Seattle Totems and scored 15 goals and collected 40 points in 52 games, while Ross and Campbell, both 17, played midget AAA hockey in Tisdale and Brandon, accumulating respective totals of 26 points

Alouettes rally late to stun Lions BY THE CANADIAN PRESS Alouettes 39 Lions 38 MONTREAL — Rookie quarterback Tanner Marsh had confidence in the hands of receiver Eric Deslauriers. But to Deslauriers, Marsh’s pass was a work of art. Sean Whyte kicked a 14-yard field goal on the final play of the game after Marsh threw a 57-yard pass to Deslauriers with 1.9 seconds remaining to give Montreal a come-from-behind 39-38 win over the B.C. Lions on Thursday night. Marsh’s last-gasp pass to Deslauriers at the seven-yard line set up the improbable comeback as the Alouettes overcame a 28-14 deficit before what remained of a crowd of 22,456 on a rainy night at Molson Stadium. “I’ll give him a jump ball every single time,” said Marsh, who replaced Josh Neiswander to begin Montreal’s fourth offensive series. “He’s a great athlete and makes plays when he needs to.”

The club has additional size up front with the likes of 16-year-old Adam Musil, who’s a lock to be on the regular-season roster, and fellow rookie hopefuls Cole Chorney and Earl Webb. “When you look at the group of players, we’re going to have some 17-year-olds and some 16s who are going to push to make the team this year,” said Sutter. “If they show us that they are where we think they are, we’ll probably have to make room for them because they will probably have passed some of the other guys on our roster. “But that’s part of progression . . . that’s part of continuing to grow as a team. My job as a GM was to make sure I started filling those holes when the season was over. It’s a work in progress, but certainly with the guys we’ve added, the experienced guys we have coming back and the promising prospects . . . I like our team.” Sutter was the recipient of excellent news when he was informed by the Los Angeles Kings following this year’s NHL draft that netminder Patrik Bartosak would be returned to the Rebels. The 20-year-old Czech, the top stopper in the entire Canadian Hockey League last season, will start at least 55 games in 2013-14. “That’s the biggest key to anything. You can’t succeed at any level if you don’t have stability at that position and Patty certainly brings that,” said Sutter. Bartosak’s return will also aid the Rebels long-term in that Sutter won’t have to rush 16-year-old Taz Burman — the club’s appointed ‘goaltender of the future’ — leaving 17-year-olds Rylan Toth, the possible favourite, and Grant Naherniak to vie for the back-up position this season.

Hot Ray leads Argos against injury-plagued Stamps BY THE CANADIAN PRESS TORONTO — Ricky Ray’s on a roll, and he knows it. The veteran quarterback has a completion average approaching 90 per cent over his last three starts and is a big reason why Toronto is the CFL’s hottest team. That’s not exactly good news for an injury-plagued Calgary Stampeders squad that will face the Argonauts at Rogers Centre on Friday night. Ray, 33, has completed 64-of-73 passes his last three starts for 851 yards and eight touchdowns. He finished 30-of-35 passing for 413 yards and three TDs in Toronto’s 3633 home win over Edmonton on Sunday and is second overall in passing with 1,768 yards with 14 TDs and no interceptions. And the 11-year veteran, who’s in his second season with Toronto, says he can feel he’s in the groove. “Yeah, just because things are going well

and we’re making a lot of plays,” he said. “We had a couple of games early on in the year where things were a little bit tougher to come by and we weren’t making as many plays so definitely you feel like you’re doing a lot of good things out there.” This season, Ray has completed 143-of183 passes, a 78.1 per cent clip. Calgary offensive co-ordinator Dave Dickenson holds the single-season record of 74 per cent set in ’05 with B.C. Dickenson also set the CFL passer-efficiency record of 118.8 that season but Ray’s boasts a mark of 133.0 thus far. Toronto (5-2) heads into a rematch of last year’s Grey Cup having won four straight. “I don’t think it slows down, I think in a sense I’m just able to make quicker decisions,” Ray said. “I’m just seeing things good right now and am able to get the ball out of my hands without second-guessing or holding on to the ball. “That’s when I feel like I’m playing good when I’m just back there making quick deci-

sions and letting it come out of my hands.” That actually started late last season after Ray missed three games with a knee injury. Toronto lost 44-32 to Winnipeg in Ray’s return but ended its campaign with five straight wins, including a 35-22 decision over Calgary in the 100th Grey Cup at Rogers Centre. “I think it started towards the end of last year but I think it’s carried over and he’s maybe taken it a step higher so far this year,” Argos head coach Scott Milanovich said. “Ricky seems to be on the same page with the new receivers, particularly John (Chiles), and picked up where he left off with the other guys and Jason Barnes has kind of started hot like he finished last year. “I think the combination of all those things has contributed to Ricky’s numbers and play.”

Rain delays hold up first round at Liberty National




shot in the 60s. That group might have included Rory McIlroy, except for a few loose swings. He had three double bogeys and still managed a 71. McIlroy blasted out of a bunker and over the 15th green. His approach found the water on No. 5. And his tee shot on the ninth took a wicked kick off the cart path, over the bushes and a fence and out-ofbounds. “The rest of it was actually pretty good,” he said. Stadler needed a good start. He hasn’t had a top 10 since New Orleans in late April, and he started these playoffs at No. 87. Only the top 100 advance to the second tournament next week outside Boston, and the top 70 from there go on to the third event in Chicago. “I’ve had a pretty lousy summer, but really started hitting the ball a lot better a couple of weeks ago and was looking forward to playing some golf again here recently,” he said. “Finally got something out of it today.”

EDMONTON — Teen golfing sensation Lydia Ko served notice Thursday she doesn’t plan to give up her CN Canadian Women’s Open crown without a fight. The 16-year-old New Zealander fired a 5-under 65 in the first round at Edmonton’s Royal Mayfair Club to tie for the early clubhouse lead with American Angela Stanford. American Paula Creamer finished third, one shot back, while Canadian Jessica Kirby of Paris, Ont., was a surprising fourth, two shots off the pace after the morning rounds. Ko stunned the golf world last year when she won the Canadian Open event in Vancouver at age 15. She came out firing Thursday, birdying four of the first seven holes, followed up by two birdies and a bogey on the back nine under blue skies and calm winds. She said that, ironically, when she birdied the 417-yard first hole, she figured she was in for a bad day. “When I start off with a birdie I haven’t really played that well, so yeah I was kind of nervous that I did make a birdie on the first,” she said. She added she felt a bit of pressure coming in as the one to beat. “Because you’re the defending champion, people are going to expect more,” she said. “(But) I called my dad a couple of days ago and he just said, ’Relax. You can’t control everything. Just play the game that you want to play.”’ Kirby, who turned pro earlier this year, said playing in the LPGA’s Manulife Financial Classic last month in Waterloo, Ont., (finishing tied for 41st) helped ease the nerves in front of crowds in Edmonton. “I felt very comfortable out there and ended up making a few putts and a good round,” said Kirby. She is ranked 560th in the world, but tabbed as one of the future stars of Canadian golf. Stanford was steady from start to finish, hitting 13

JERSEY CITY, N.J. — Kevin Stadler teed off just after breakfast and finished right before dinner. It took him nearly 11 hours to complete a 7-under 64 at Liberty National, his lowest score on the PGA Tour since the first week of February. And he still isn’t guaranteed to be the first-round leader at The Barclays. The FedEx Cup playoffs got off to a soggy start Thursday with two rain delays that lasted six hours. It was a start-again, stop-again day on the bank of the Hudson River, but that didn’t stop Stadler. He ran off three birdies early, then returned from the second delay and threw in four more birdies on a soft golf course. Asked if it was difficult to stay mentally prepared, Stadler replied, “I’m never really mentally prepared. Same as usual. It was all good.” Tiger Woods, the No. 1 player in the world and in this playoff series, came out of the first delay by missing a short birdie putt on the par-5 13th and then rolling in three straight birdies to get into the mix. He cooled slightly after the slightly longer second delay, and failed to make birdie on any of the par 5s in his round of 67. Graham DeLaet of Weyburn, Sask., also had a 67. Woods didn’t mind the long day. He was more concerned about the next long day on the horizon. Only the top half of the draw finished the round. The later starters — Ben Crane played only two holes — were to resume the round Friday morning and then go straight to the second round. That left the top half facing extra holes on Saturday to get the tournament caught up. “We’re done,” Woods said. “It was a long day, and tomorrow will be a short one. And then Saturday will be pretty much a marathon.” British Open champion Phil Mickelson and Masters champion Adam Scott were among those who didn’t finish. PGA champion Jason Dufner had a 71, while U.S. Open champion Justin Rose recovered from a double bogey on the par-5 13th for a 68. David Hearn of Brantford, Ont., opened with a 73. Camilo Villegas, who started the season with conditional status and is No. 110 in the FedEx Cup standings, ran off four straight birdies around the turn and was the only player to reach 8 under — for now — until backto-back bogeys late in his round. He had a 65, along with Henrik Stenson and Ryan Palmer. “Three breakfasts, three warm-ups, two lunches and a bunch of birdies, which is good,” Villegas said. Jason Day and Matt Kuchar shot 66. Day made two bogeys that kept a good round from getting away from him. His ball dropped over the rocks and into the water to the left of the fifth green, and he got up-and-down from there. On his closing hole, the par-4 ninth, his drive went deep into the bushes and forced him to take a penalty drop. He got onto the green and made another bogey. The rain allowed for some low scoring at Liberty National, which hosted The Barclays in 2009 and produced a winning score of 9 under. The course also went through significant changes to soften some of the landing zones and green complexes. Plus, there is virtually no rough. Nothing allows for low scoring quite like soft conditions, however. Nearly half of those who finished their rounds


of 18 greens in regulation, carding three birdies on the front nine and two on the back. The 35-year-old from Fort Worth, Texas, is looking for her sixth LPGA win and has been playing her best golf of the season to date. She ended up tied for 17th at the Women’s British Open earlier this month, and finished in the top five in the three events prior to it. Not all the news was good out of Texas Tuesday. No. 2 ranked Stacy Lewis of The Woodlands, near Houston, had a day to forget. She had five bogeys over her first seven holes and finished with a round of 4-over 74. Lewis, winner of the British Open, saw her U.S. team taken apart last weekend by the Europeans at the Solheim Cup, in Denver. It was the first time the Euros had taken the trophy on U.S. soil, and Lewis said the letdown crept into her game Thursday. “I played terrible all day,” she said. “I didn’t make any putts. I didn’t hit the ball very good and the start just didn’t help. “I was tired out there. Mentally I wasn’t in it. Just coming off the last week is still tough.” Anything to work on prior to Friday? she was asked. “No, honestly I need to get away from it right now. Probably the best thing I could do is walk away.” Like Stanford, Creamer is also playing some of the best golf of the season. The 27-year-old from Mountain View, Calif., started her day with a bogey out of the gate, but made a late charge after the turn, carding four birdies on the back nine to move into contention. There are 156 players vying for US$2 million in prize money, with $300,000 going to the winner. With Ko still classified as an amateur, she is not eligible for the prize money. Should she win Sunday, the cash would go to the second-place finisher. Notes: Canadian Lorie Kane of Charlottetown carded 1-over 71, good for six strokes back. In 14 events this year, Kane has missed the cut nine times and never finished higher than 41st.

RDC Kings get offensive boost by adding Innifail’s Simpson BY DANNY RODE ADVOCATE STAFF

RDC HOCKEY ond season. The five-foot-eight, 185-pound Simpson was named to the AJHL’s South all-rookie team following the 2009-10 season and was on the AJHL’s South Division all-star team in 2010-11. His first year at Ohio State proved to be a write off as he played two games before being injured for the rest of the season. Last season he played 34 games, scoring three times and adding two assists. He decided to return to Central Alberta and was accepted into electrical engineering at RDC. There’s a possibility Keeper will add one more forward before the team looks to open the Alberta Colleges Men’s Hockey League camp, Sept. 1 at 5:30 p.m. in Penhold. “We have one other player, who’s looking at getting his courses,” said Keeper. “He played pro in Colorado in the Central Hockey League after spending some time with Mount Royal and Grant MacEwan in the college League.” Keeper wouldn’t mind adding some defensive depth, but that’s easier said than done.

The RDC hockey Kings’ offence received a boost Thursday with the addition of Innisfail native Riley Simpson. The 20-year-old Simpson played junior hockey for two seasons with the Brooks Bandits of the Alberta Junior Hockey League before spending the last two seasons with the Ohio State Buckeyes. “He definitely is a nice addition to our team,” said Kings head coach Trevor Keeper. “You can’t teach scoring and he has the potential to be one of the better offensive players in the league.” Simpson played bantam AAA hockey with the Red Deer Rebels White team and was a pick of the Kootenay Ice in the 2008 Western Hockey League Bantam Draft. He spent a season with the Red Deer Northstar Chiefs in minor midget AAA before joining the Bandits. He had 16 goals, 18 assists and 48 minutes in penalties in 34 games his first season then added 35 goals and 41 helpers to go with 70 minutes in penalties in 59 games. In the playoffs he had seven goals and one assist in nine games the first season and three goals and seven helpers in 10 games his sec-

“I would have liked to have seven or eight defencemen, but right now we have six,” he said. “But this year everyone is looking for D-men. It seems to be an area that’s a little thin. If we don’t get anyone else some of the guys we have up front have played some defence, so they can help out. “Right now we’re good up front and in goal, and the guys we do have on defence are solid players.” There’s a chance the Kings’ camp may not open until Sept. 3. “They’re repairing the plant in Penhold, so it’s still up in the air if they’ll be ready by the Sept. 1,” said Keeper. “If they’re not ready they said they should be by Sept. 3.” The Kings don’t practice Sept, 2 but will be on the ice the following three days at 4:45 p.m. Keeper confirmed Thursday the Kings will open their preseason schedule Sept. 13 at 7 p.m. in Penhold against the SAIT Trojans. They play SAIT Sept. 14 in Calgary and will host the University of Alberta, Augustana Vikings Sept, 19 in Penhold.

Calgary Hitmen’s Calder Brooks handles the puck as Red Deer Rebels goaltender Patrik Bartosak covers the net during game three in the WHL Eastern Conference semifinal at the Centrium last season. Bartosak will be one of the returning veterans counted on to help Rebels improve from last season.


REBELS: Started to add the pieces Veteran Bolton Pouliot will check into main camp Monday, but at the age of 19 he might be a long shot to gain the No. 2 spot. It’s not often that a club will carry 20- and 19-year-old goaltenders, but if Pouliot has a great camp Sutter could be convinced to send Toth and Naherniak back to the midget AAA level for further seasoning, which might not be a bad thing. “Naherniak is a kid who’s been part of our program for a few years, yet there have been some weaknesses in his game,” said Sutter. “There are areas he needs to improve in and if he doesn’t play here he can go back to Moose Jaw and play with a team (Generals) hosting the Telus Cup. That experience alone should benefit him going into the following season. “I really like our goaltending situation. Patty returning to Red Deer was huge in the process of developing the goalies in our system. And having Tay-

lor (newly-hired goaltender coach Dakers), who can spend a lot of time not just with our goalies but also our prospects, is significant, especially with the new (Hockey Canada) rules where you can no longer draft European goaltenders.” Among the Rebels’ key returnees are forwards Rhyse Dieno, Brooks Maxwell, Conner Bleackley, Dominik Volek, Matt Bellerive and Wyatt Johnson, and defencemen Mathew Dumba — who will likely start the NHL season with Minnesota and might not be back — Brady Gaudet and Haydn Fleury. Sutter will be looking for impressive camps from returning 18-year-old forwards Scott Feser, Christian Stockl and Cory Millette, who will be pushed by a rookie crop that includes Grayson Pawlenchuk, Meyer Nell and Mathieu Lapointe. On the back end, the Rebels boss wants a bigger season from Kayle Doetzel, who was passed over in June’s NHL entry draft. Fellow returnee Devan Fafard is a virtual lock, while rookies Jake MacLachlan and Kaleb Denham, and second-year man Riley Boomgaarden are also in the picture. “I really like our team. I like our prospects, I like what’s coming,” said Sutter. “Now it’s going to sort itself out over the next three weeks. Our expec-

BASEBALL CHAMPIONSHIPS Team Alberta posted a 1-1 record during the opening day of the Canadian bantam girls’ baseball championships in Bedford, N.S. Thursday. Alberta, which is coached by Dwayne Lalor of Red Deer, beat Manitoba 18-8 and lost 10-0 to Quebec. Meghan Cameron of Rimbey was one-for-one with four walks and three RBIs against Manitoba while Kelsey Lalor had three walks, scored twice and drove in a run. Hayley Lalor was one-for-three with a run and RBI. Torrie Craig of Clive finished one-forthree with two runs and a walk. Christine Suominen of Lacombe played, but didn’t have an at bat. Hayley Lalor pitched two innings against Quebec allowing two runs on two hits and three walks. Suominen also pitched, but didn’t get an out. She allowed two rnsn on three walks and no hits. Alberta faces B.C. and Nova Scotia today and Ontario and Newfoundland and Labrador on Saturday. Quebec also beat Nova Scotia 8-5 Thursday while Ontario downed Newfoundland 12-6 and Manitoba 21-10. B.C. stopped Newfoundland 7-3 and Nova Scotia 2-1. ● The senior men’s baseball championship also opened in Windsor, Ont., Thursday with the Fort Saskatchewan A’s edging Nova Scotia 3-2 and the Parkland White Sox dropping a 5-4 decision to Windsor. Matt Fay of the Red Deer Riggers was zero-for-one with two walks for the A’s while Jaret Chatwood had an RBI and Jason Chatwood scored once. Pitcher Dustin Northcott of the Riggers is also with the A’s. Tom Muhlethaler drove in a pair of runs in the bottom of the fifth to give Jordy Alexander of Calgary the win. Alexander went seven innings, allowing five hits. Riggers Joel Peterman took the loss for the White Sox, allowing three runs in 1 1/3 innings. The A’s face New Brunswick II and Newfoundland today and Ontario Saturday. The Sox take on B.C. today and New Brunswick and Manitoba Saturday. In other games Thursday, New Brunswick II defeated Newfoundland 14-6 and lost 7-4 to Ontario. B.C. edged New Brunswick 5-4.

tations here are always high. Our veteran players all have to be better and yet they should be, being a year older and with more experience. “It’s encouraging, and yet you want to see it. I think we’ve started to add the pieces we need regarding the way we want to play. As an organization you have to continue to move forward.” ● Rookie camp resumes Sunday with a goaltender session at 1 p.m. and a scrimmage at 3 p.m., and concludes Monday with the goalies on the ice from 2-3 p.m. and scrimmages at 3 p.m.. Main camps open Monday at 5 p.m., with scrimmages set for 1:30 and 6 p.m. Tuesday. Practices will be staged at 9, 10:15 and 11:30 a.m. Wednesday — followed by a Black and White preview scrimmage at 5 p.m. — and camp will conclude with the Black and White intraquad game at 7 p.m. Thursday . . . Five Rebels veterans will attend NHL camps, with Dumba off to Minnesota Aug. 31, Bartosak, Dieno and Doetzel departing for Los Angeles, Minnesota and Nashville Sept. 3, and Sutter leaving for Winnipeg Sept. 4.

RALLY: Pretty ball Deslauriers said watching the pass coming in made him feel “like a photographer.” “It was such a pretty ball,” Deslauriers said. “It was just up there forever.” Marsh threw for 329 yards despite completing only 14 of 32 pass attempts, including four interceptions. “I showed that I was a rookie,” said the 23-year-old Texan. “I made a lot of rookie mistakes that I have to fix to be a successful quarterback in this league, no doubt, and I’ve got to keep learning. It was a great team win but I did a lot of bad things and I’ve got to fix them.” Marsh, who was a senior at Arkansas Tech last season, also rushed for 71 yards on nine carries, including his first touchdown run in the third quarter after completing his first touchdown pass to S.J. Green in the second quarter. Tyron Carrier returned a kick 90 yards to draw Montreal within 38-33 but the Alouettes failed to convert a two-point attempt. Whyte had four field goals in the game. The Alouettes (3-5) won for the first time in three games under general manager Jim Popp, who became Montreal’s interim coach after he and owner Robert Wetenhall fired Dan Hawkins on Aug. 1. Tim Brown returned a missed field

goal 124 yards for a touchdown early in the third quarter and Travis Lulay threw a pair of touchdowns to Shawn Gore for B.C. (5-3), which had won two in a row. Paul McCallum kicked five field goals for the Lions and Lulay threw his second touchdown pass to Gore, a 29-yard catch-and-run in the fourth quarter to put B.C. up 38-27. McCallum, who kicked his fourth field goal at the end of the first half to put B.C. up 21-7, hit a 33-yarder in the fourth. The veteran kicker also completed a 12-yard pass to Anton McKenzie for a first down on a fake punt.

RAY: Solid protection up front Ray has also received solid protection up front as Toronto’s offensive line has allowed a league-low 12 sacks, one less than second-place Calgary. “We watched games from early last year, even Week 2 when we played Calgary, and you can see the difference in his feet,” Milanovich said. “A quarterback’s accuracy, in my opinion, is all based on his footwork and body position. “He was getting hit at that time last year and just wasn’t as comfortable in the pocket and that can affect your accuracy. This year we’ve been protecting him much better.” Calgary (5-2) won’t be at full strength Friday night. Veteran slotback Nik Lewis, a perennial 1,000-yard receiver, is out after suffering a fractured fibula in last week’s 26-22 loss to B.C. Receiver Maurice Price (ankle), offensive lineman Dimitri Tsoumpas (concussion) and running back Jon Cornish (thigh contusion) also won’t play. The loss of Cornish — last year’s CFL rushing leader who’s second this year with 749 yards — is huge. Among the Stampeders on the ninegame injured list are receivers Johnny Forzani, Joe West and Chris Bouman, offensive lineman Edwin Harrison and defensive linemen Etienne Legare and Corey Mace. “Chris (Argos defensive co-ordinator Chris Jones) will still have to stop the run against Calgary, whether Jon plays or not,” Milanovich said. “That’s been their MO and what they like to hang their hat on. But after a week like we had last week you’ve also got to expect them to test our secondary. I still believe any defence has to stop the run first and make a team one dimensional.”

Yankees sweep series with Jays BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Yankees 5 Blue Jays 3 NEW YORK — Andy Pettitte, Alex Rodriguez and the New York Yankees are making their move in the AL playoff race — thanks in large part to all the wins they are piling up against Toronto. Pettitte pitched six effective innings, and Curtis Granderson homered to help the surging Yankees win 5-3 on Thursday after a 3 ½-hour rain delay, their 10th straight victory over the Blue Jays. New York took advantage of a missed call by the umpires to win its fifth consecutive game and 10th in 12 overall. “We’re feeling good about ourselves, and you knew this was going to happen,” Pettitte said. “It was just a matter of when, and you hope it’s not too late.” Eduardo Nunez hit a tworun single for the Yankees, who improved to 12-1 against Toronto this season with their second four-game sweep of the Blue Jays. New York moved within 3 ½ games of the second AL wild-card spot heading into a weekend series at Tampa Bay. “We’ve got a good shot,” Granderson said. “We still control our destiny.” The Yankees have won 13 home games in a row against Toronto, their longest streak against one team since a 14-game run vs. Kansas City from August 2002 to April 2006. The last-place Blue Jays have lost five straight and 11 of 15. The only other opponent to sweep a pair of four-game series from them in one season was the 1978 Milwaukee Brewers. Toronto had a lead in every game of this series, just as it did during New York’s four-game whitewash at Yankee Stadium in late April. The Blue Jays have dropped 22 of 24 in the Bronx, dating to 2011. Their 10-game skid vs. New York is their longest against one team in a single season since losing 11 in a row against

Boston in 2002. “It’s hard. Yankee Stadium is a tough place. The sad part is we’re in every game, basically all year. We just couldn’t put them away with a lead,” said manager John Gibbons, ejected in the fifth. Rodriguez made a pair of important defensive plays at third base and worked a walk that started a rally. Pettitte (9-9) gave up four hits and three walks to win his second consecutive start after going 0-3 in his previous five. His only blemish was J.P. Arencibia’s leadoff homer in the fifth. With his 254th victory, the 41-year-old lefty tied Jack Morris and Hall of Famer Red Faber for 42nd place on the career list. After the Blue Jays scored twice off Shawn Kelley in the seventh, Boone Logan struck out pinch-hitter Adam Lind with two on to preserve a 5-3 lead. Preston Claiborne, just recalled from the minors, worked a scoreless eighth, and David Robertson pitched a perfect ninth for his second save. Mariano Rivera was rested after appearing in three games over the previous two days. “Each day you’re able to make up a little ground, it seems more attainable — and that’s good for the guys in that room,” Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. The start was delayed for 3 hours, 32 minutes — though it wasn’t raining when play was supposed to begin. Light, steady showers fell throughout much of the delay, and the game didn’t start until the storm front cleared. The sun broke through as Pettitte trotted out to the mound to begin his warmups. Aided by an incorrect call, the Yankees took a 2-1 lead against J.A. Happ (3-3) on a confusing play in the fifth. With the bases loaded and one out, Vernon Wells hit a sinking liner to centre that was caught by a tumbling Rajai Davis just before it hit the

But the umpires ruled it a trap as Nunez scored the go-ahead run. Thinking the ball had been caught, Chris Stewart tried to scramble back to second and was thrown out by Davis — after he fumbled the transfer. Gibbons came out to argue the ball was caught. Instead, Wells was credited with an RBI on an 8-4 fielder’s choice. “We scored a run, that’s all that matters,” he said. Gibbons was ejected, for the fifth time this season, by first base ump Scott Barry. Toronto pitcher Mark Buehrle was tossed by third base um-

Big names in cycling confirmed for inaugural Tour of Alberta road race and time trial national championships this year; and Marcus Burghardt, a former Tour de France stage winner and winner of the GhentWevelgem classic in Belgium. Joining Sagan will be current Danish national time trial champion Brian Vandborg and rising star Damiano Caruso, while Team Argos-Shimano will highlight Patrick Gretsch, a former Stage winner of the USA Pro Challenge and second in this year’s German national time trial championships. Belkin-Pro Cycling Team, the Netherland’s top professional team, will be led by Dutchman Robert Gesink, the 2012 Tour of California champion and winner of the 2010 Gran Prix Montreal World Cup race, and Jack Bobridge the 2011 Australian road race champion and Olympic silver medalist at the London Olympic Games on the track, and TomJelte Slagter, the 2013 champion of Australia’s top race, Tour Down Under. “We’ve certainly attracted a top-notch field for the first Tour of Alberta,” said Jim Birrell, Tour of Alberta race director and managing partner at Medalist Sports, technical partner for the event. “The people of Alberta, and all of Canada, will be able to see Tour de France and Olympic heroes as well

as many former and current national champions of their countries.” Among the other top riders announced are current Canadian national champion Zach Bell, 2012 Canadian champion Ryan Roth, both of Champion System; current U.S. national champion Fred Rodriguez; former Tour of Utah stage winner Jacob Keough of UnitedHealthcare team; Edmonton native Ryan Anderson and current U.S. time trial champion Tom Zirbel, both of Optum presented by Kelly Benefit Strategies; Will Routley of the Canadian national team; and Spaniard Francisco Mancebo, a former Tour of Utah winner and top 10 Tour de France finisher, riding for 5 Hour Energy p/b Kenda Racing Team. The race will feature more than 20 professional cyclists from Canada and athletes from more than 20 countries. “We are committed to building Canadian cycling through this event,” said Brian Jolly, the Tour of Alberta chairman. “This event is not only great for Alberta but all of Canada. We are introducing a worldclass event to Canada with a world-class field. We’re on the right track for success.” The Tour makes a stop in Red Deer on Sept. 5. The 175-kilmetre leg begins in Devon and finishes at 4736 50th St. in Red Deer.

throw out Lawrie on a slow bouncer in the fourth, saving a run. The third baseman, who returned this month from hip surgery and a strained quadriceps, also grabbed a sharp grounder and stepped on the bag to start an inning-ending double play with the bases loaded in the fifth. “Just smoked, right down the line. I mean, I just put my glove down. That ball caught me, almost,” he said. “That was a big play.” Granderson led off the bottom half and homered into the second deck in right, tying it at 1.

Panthers pounce on mistake-prone Ravens THE ASSOCIATED PRESS PANTHERS 34 RAVENS 27 BALTIMORE — Ted Ginn Jr. returned a punt 74 yards for a touchdown and the Carolina Panthers’ defence scored three times in a 34-27 preseason victory over the mistake-prone Baltimore Ravens on Thursday night. Drayton Florence took an interception 71 yards into the end zone, Thomas Davis scored on a 2-yard fumble return and linebacker Luke Kuechly picked off another of Joe Flacco’ passes late in the second quarter to set up a 54-yard field goal by Graham Gano. Carolina (2-1) had only 67 yards in offence before halftime, yet reeled off 24 straight points after Baltimore (2-1) scored on its first possession. Late in the third quarter, D.J. Moore intercepted a pass by Tyrod Taylor and ran 31 yards for a touchdown to make it 34-17. Flacco, the Super Bowl MVP, played into the third quarter and went 18 for 24 for 169 yards and a touchdown. Panthers quarterback Cam Newton completed 10 of 19 passes for 99 yards. LIONS 40, PATRIOTS 9 DETROIT (AP) — Reggie Bush had

five catches for 103 yards to help Detroit rout New England. The Patriots’ first-team offence, which was precise and efficient in the first two games of the exhibition season, was anything but in preseason game No. 3. Tight end Zach Sudfeld and running backs Brandon Bolden and Shane Vereen lost fumbles and Tom Brady threw an interception in four of New England’s first five possessions. Brady played four series in the first two preseason games combined, completing 18 of his 20 passes for 172 yards and two touchdowns in two victories. But in a half of work Thursday at Ford Field, he was 16 of 24 for 185 yards and the second-quarter interception by Detroit cornerback Chris Houston. Detroit starter Matthew Stafford also played the entire first half, and helped lead Detroit’s first team to a better showing than it had in its first two exhibition efforts. The starters played seven series in those games — a win over the Jets and a loss in Cleveland — and managed only a pair of field goals. Stafford finished 12 of 25 for 166 yards and touchdown.

IZMIR, Turkey — Stephen Maar of Aurora, Ont., scored 15 points to lead Canada to a 25-15, 25-15, 27-29, 25-18 victory over Tunisia on Thursday to open the 20-country FIVB U21 world men’s volleyball championship. Five Canadians reached double digits in scoring. Brad Gunter of Courtenay, B.C., and Danny Demyanenko of Toronto each added 14 points, Ryley

Barnes of St. Paul, Man., had 13 and John Goranson of Red Deer, 10. ”We are happy to win the match today,” said Canadian captain Milan Nikic of Calgary. ”The third set is always the toughest set to close up the match. They got back against us but I think our reaction showed our talent when we recovered in the fourth set.“ Canada has a day off Friday before resuming round robin play on Saturday against Rwanda. In the other pool C match Thursday, the U.S., defeated Rwanda in four sets. Canada faces Serbia on Sunday and the Americans on Monday.

EDMONTON — The 2011 Tour de France winner Cadel Evans of BMC Racing Team, the current world’s No. 2-ranked rider Peter Sagan of Cannondale Pro Cycling, and 2012 Tour of Italy winner and Canadian Ryder Hesjedal of Team Garmin-Sharp, headline a star-studded field for the inaugural Tour of Alberta, Sept. 3-8, it was announced in a news release. “We’re elated to announce the participation of some of the world’s top cyclists, which confirms our intentions of making this a great field in the inaugural year of the Tour,” said executive director Duane Vienneau. “To have a former Tour de France winner, Cadel Evans, one of the most prolific winners today in professional cycling in Peter Sagan, and Canadian cycling hero and a Tour of Italy champion Ryder Hesjedal in the same race is amazing, and will make for a spectacular experience for everyone involved.” Sanctioned by the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI), cycling’s governing body with a 2.1 ranking, the Tour of Alberta is one of the highest level pro cycling events in Canada and North America. Joining Hesjedal on Team Garmin-Sharp is 2012 USA Pro Challenge winner Christian Vande Velde of the United States, three-time Tour de France stage winner David Millar of Great Britain, seven-time U.S. National Champion in the time trial David Zabriskie, and Lachlan Morton of Australia, who won stage 3 in the 2013 Tour of Utah. Australia’s top team Orica-GreenEDGE will feature Peter Weening of the Netherlands, the recent winner of the Tour of Poland and a stage winner in both Tours of Italy and France; and Cam Meyer, a stage winner at this year’s Tour of Switzerland and Tour de France (team time trial). Joining Evans on BMC Racing is Brent Bookwalter, who finished second overall in both U.S.

Info, bonding, but no skating at Canada’s camp OLYMPIC MEN’S HOCKEY BY THE CANADIAN PRESS CALGARY — Steve Yzerman would prefer to get Canada’s players on the ice at the upcoming orientation camp for the Olympic men’s hockey team. But the price tag to insure players against injury is too high for Hockey Canada, so the four-day camp starting Sunday in Calgary will consist of informational meetings about the Games in Sochi, Russia, and fostering team chemistry off the ice. “Not going on the ice isn’t the end of the world,” says Yzerman, the executive director of the national men’s team. “There’s lot of other things that need to be done in preparation, logistically going through how we’re going to get there, where we’ll stay, where family and friends may stay, a walkthrough of the venues, drug testing policy, a lot of informational things we need to go through and get out of the way. This is a good time to do it.” Forty-seven players — five goaltenders, 17 defencemen and 25 forwards — are scheduled to arrive in Calgary on Sunday and head to Hockey Canada’s headquarters at Canada Olympic Park on the city’s west side. Canada can take three goaltenders and 22 skaters to Sochi. Among the summer camp invitees are 15 players who won Olympic gold in Vancouver in 2010, including Sidney Crosby. The Pittsburgh star’s overtime goal lifted Canada to a 3-2 win over the U.S. in the final. Players invited to the same orientation camp in

the summer of 2009 skated daily and finished with an intra-squad game that drew a sellout crowd to the Scotiabank Saddledome. The Saddledome is undergoing restoration from severe flooding in June, but that’s not keeping the players off the ice next week, says Yzerman. “It’s strictly insurance,” he explains. “It’s because of the high cost of insurance Hockey Canada is obligated to place on the players we’re not going to skate.” It’s up to each country’s federation to insure NHL players against injury at summer camps. Hockey Canada president Bob Nicholson has said that would cost over $1 million for the invited 47, whose combined 2013-14 salaries total $259 million, according to Canada’s isn’t the only ice-free summer camp. USA Hockey has also decided against an on-ice component to its men’s Olympic camp in Arlington, Va., on Monday and Tuesday. The 2014 men’s Olympic hockey tournament will be played on wide, international ice, which places a premium on a player’s skating ability. The new Markin MacPhail Centre at COP boasts a rink that size. When asked if he wished the Canadians could make use of it next week, Yzerman said “yes” twice. The 2002 Olympic gold medallist was also executive director of the victorious 2010 squad. He says even a couple of practices could lay important groundwork for the Winter Games in February. “We have such a limited amount of time to prepare,” said Yzerman, the general manager of the Tampa Bay Lightning. “I think we’ll have two, maybe three, practices in Sochi prior to the Olympics. “The summer camp, and it’s only a few days and

six months in advance, but it’s a little time for the players and coaches to get on the ice and kind of run through some of the systems, the way they’ll play, the power play, penalty killing, neutral zone and things like that. “At least you’ll have an idea way ahead of time as to how we’re going to play. That, to me, was the most important part of going on the ice in August for a few days.” Strategy can still be communicated without skating, Yzerman adds. Head coach Mike Babcock and assistants Lindy Ruff, Claude Julien and Ken Hitchcock will have a video session with the players in Calgary. “I’m sure we’ll go over different stuff,” says Pittsburgh Penguins forward and camp invitee James Neal. “It’s a lot tougher when you’re not on the ice, but we’re going there for a reason and I’m sure it will help us,” It’s also crucial players get face time with the coaches, support staff and each other, Yzerman says. “The more time they can spend together, the more comfortable they’ll be when they get to Sochi and that’s a big part of it, particularly for the young players that haven’t been to NHL all-star games, haven’t been to Olympic camps before,” Yzerman says. “They’ll walk into the (dressing) room and have spent time with Sidney Crosby before, they’ve spent time with some of these veteran guys and they’ll be much more comfortable around them.” He says players will have time to golf, fish and go for dinner together, as well as work out while they’re in Calgary. NHL training camps start earlier this season because the league breaks Feb. 9-26 for the Winter Games.

Argos coach Milanovich comes to defence of Als’ Calvillo TORONTO — Scott Milanovich came to Anthony Calvillo’s defence Thursday. The Toronto Argonauts head coach said the media criticism Calvillo has endured this season is unfair and the veteran quarterback’s critics have been too quick to forget his many achievements in his 16 seasons with the Montreal Alouettes. “I’ve had a hard time watching what’s going on with Anthony, particularly the heat he has taken from the media,” Milanovich told reporters in his news conference prior to Friday night’s game with Calgary. “The guy is a firstballot Hall of Famer and has held that organization on his shoulders for years and years. “I feel like it’s not fair to him. That’s from an outsider that at one point was his coach and even today still feels protective of him.” Calvillo, who turns 41 on Friday, missed Montreal’s game Thursday night with B.C. due to a concussion suffered in Sunday’s 24-21 loss to Saskatchewan. Thirdyear veteran Josh Neiswander was scheduled to make his first CFL star in Calvillo’s absence. But the injury to Calvillo just adds to the challenge of what’s been a season to forget so far for the struggling Alouettes (2-5). The six-foot-one, 200-pound Calvillo, in

Dice-K gets another shot with Mets

his 20th CFL season and pro football’s all-time passing leader, is sixth among league passers with 1,322 yards. Calvillo began the 2013 campaign with a career completion percentage of 62.5 per cent but this year has completed 115-of196 passes (58.7 per cent) with six TDs and five interceptions. That’s a far cry from Calvillo’s production the five previous seasons un-

won two Grey Cups, two CFL outstanding player awards and was named a league all-star three times. This season, Montreal’s offence is ranked last in total yards (280 per game), passing yards (214.6), completion percentage (56.6) and second-last in scoring (22.3 points per game). New coach Dan Hawkins was fired after just five games and replaced on

an interim basis by GM Jim Popp. But predictably a lot of the criticism for the Alouettes’ offensive woes this season has been directed at Calvillo. Milanovich earned two Grey Cup rings with Montreal before leading Toronto to a CFL championship last year. He said there’s much more to appreciate about Calvillo than just his ability to play football.

“I know what kind of person he is, what kind of man he is so I don’t like to hear those sorts of things,” Milanovich said. “As a friend, a concussion is always scary. “I don’t know the specifics of how serious it was or how long he’ll be out or what his status was on the sidelines. I sent him a text this week (to say) I was thinking of him. I’m always concerned for those guys.”

6 speed S/S automatic - A sporty twist to a proven performer.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK — The New York Mets are the latest team to take a chance on Daisuke Matsuzaka. The Mets signed the Japanese right-hander to a one-year contract on Thursday and plan to start him in the opener of a weekend series against the Detroit Tigers. The 32-year-old Matsuzaka was released by Cleveland on Tuesday at his request. He had spent the entire season at Triple-A Columbus after failing to win a spot in Cleveland’s rotation during spring training. After working through early season injuries, Matsuzaka had pitched well in recent weeks, going 4-4 with a 3.56 ERA and 54 strikeouts in 10 starts for the Clippers since July 2. He was 5-8 with a 3.92 ERA in 19 minor league starts overall. The game against the Tigers will be Matsuzaka’s first major league appearance since he went 1-7 with an 8.28 ERA in 11 starts for Boston last year.

GREAT STREETS UP FOR RECOGNITION A busy public market at and a exceptionally beautiful Main Street are both in the running for recognition as Great Places in Canada. Lacombe’s Main Street is leading the Great Streets competition while the Red Deer Public Market is up against stiff competition in the Public Places division. Organized by the Canadian Institute of Planners, the competition invited nominations in three categories. There were no local entries for the Neighbourhoods category. Web users are invited to visit greatplacesincanada. ca to vote for their favourites. To see local entries in person, visit Red Deer Public Market on Saturday mornings in the Red Deer Arena parking lot. Lacombe visitors can drop in to the Stopping House Cafe and the Flatiron Museum for a closer look at some of the historic buildings on Main Street. Voting closes on Sept. 23, with winners to be announced during World Town Planning Day on Nov. 8.

LACOMBE’S HISTORIC HOMES OPEN FOR TOUR A few of the historic homes unique to Lacombe will be open for public tours on Saturday. The Lacombe Historical Society has arranged a tour that includes the Puffer, Michener, Morrison and Owens residences. It runs from 1 to 4 p.m., winding up with tea at the Morrison House Cafe. Tickets are $25 each, available at the Flatiron Museum on Main Street and the Morrison Cafe at 5331 51st Ave. Call 403-7823933 or 403-755-6935 to learn more.

STETTLER TENNIS FUNDED Improvements will be made to the tennis courts in Stettler thanks to a $5,000 contribution from the County of Stettler. County council approved the allocation at its Aug. 14 meeting, with the money going to the Stettler Tennis Club out of the country’s special recreation funding reserve.

Water monitoring will continue on Lacombe Lake, after five years of study has found that bacteria and nutrient levels remain high in the lake three km north of the city. Testing of the lake began in 2008 when pressure from lakeshore residents convinced Lacombe County to establish a monitoring program. Residents suspected that water being diverted into the lake from Whelp Creek was contributing bacteria and excess nutrients to the water body, and so the creek diversion — in place since the 1960s to control stream flow during periods of high water levels — was closed off for the 2008-12 testing period. The findings from the testing period showed that nitrogen levels in the lake exhibited a decreasing trend over the five years, suggesting the creek had been a significant source of nitrogen to the lake. However, bacteria and phosphorous levels did not significantly decrease. While the county will continue to prevent Whelp Creek from flowing into the lake, it will no longer organize the lake monitoring program. That task will fall to the Lacombe Lake Stewardship Society, created in 2012. The group is now tasked with creating an action plan for water quality monitoring and improvement for the lake. Cliff Soper, a member of the group and a county councillor, said that plan will likely include expanding the monitoring it does of the lake and its surroundings. “One of the things we would like to do is do an analysis of what’s in the watershed — plants, animals, what activities take place — and that’s a fairly expensive proposition. “We need an analysis. We’re not sure what’s going on in the watershed,” said Soper.

Totem poles to mark group’s 50th anniversary PARKLAND CLASS HELPS PEOPLE WITH DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITIES Two totem poles will be officially unveiled on Saturday to mark the 50th anniversary of a Red Deer organization that provides community services for people with developmental disabilities. More than 400 people are expected to attend the event at Parkland Community Living and Supports Society (Parkland CLASS) at 6010 45th Ave. The location is just north of River Glen School in Red Deer. The event runs from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., with the official program starting at 1 p.m. Phil Stephan, chief executive officer of the society, says the event will celebrate the an organization that started with six families who came together to provide education for children with special needs. Over the next 25 years, the organization evolved to provide advocacy, respite care for families, and in-home support.


BRIEFS Edmonton police arrest robbery suspect Edmonton police have arrested a suspect wanted in connection with at least three armed robberies in Red Deer. Cpl. Leanne Molzahn, media liaison officer for the Red Deer City RCMP, said local police have been tracking a suspect

By 1988, the group had 45 staff and provided services to 42 families. After 1988, the organization became involved in supporting de-institutionalization of adults with developmental disabilities. In the following 20 years, Parkland CLASS constructed more than 25 community group homes in Red Deer and area. Today, the society is one of the largest providers of special needs accessible housing in Alberta. The organization supports more than 40 community group homes for adults and children and delivers a variety of community-based programs, family support, independent living support, recreation and social activities and respite care. While the majority of its services are delivered in Central Alberta, the organization has expanded to provide support and outreach training to the western Arctic. On

who threatened staff with a tire iron at three Red Deer liquor stores on three consecutive days. Molzahn said in a news release issued on Thursday that an armed suspect got undisclosed quantities of cash from the Cyrious Liquor Store on Tuesday, Aug. 13, a Sobey’s Liquor Store on the next day and the Liquor Crossing Wine Centre on the day after that. Video surveillance from the three stores confirm that the same suspect was responsible for all three incidents, Molzahn said in her release. Currently in custody, Ryan



an international scale, it has partnerships in Argentina, Peru and Mexico. More than 600 staff and foster caregivers provide support to more than 450 adults, children and families. Stephan says the 10-metre-high totem poles to be unveiled on Saturday are “incredible works of art.” One of the totem poles tells the history of the organization in painted carvings. The second totem pole depicts wildlife and nature scenes. Sharon Grimshire will be a special guest at the unveiling. A staff member for more than 30 years, she is the daughter of one of the organization’s founders and her sister received services from Parkland CLASS for more than 50 years, said Stephan.

Adams, 34, is due in Red Deer provincial court today to answer three counts each of armed robbery and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose. He is facing three additional counts of armed robbery in Edmonton.

Motorcyclist dies in crash A 40-year-old motorcyclist died in a collision with a minivan near Markerville late Wednesday night. The collision occurred at the


intersection of Hwy 781 and 592. Innisfail RCMP and emergency services were dispatched to the scene at 11:10 p.m. The man driving the motorcycle died on scene. The 17-year-old female driver, the lone occupant of the minivan, was transported to hospital with non-life threatening injuries. RCMP say the weather was clear and traffic was light at the time of the collision. The matter is still under investigation but police say early indications show neither speed nor alcohol were factors in the crash.

Astronaut recounts near-drowning on spacewalk

Trying to make batteries even better


Mega storage and energy modulation is the Holy Grail for full-time production in large wind or photovoltaic systems. Batteries typically are the long-standing mode of electrical storage and with their inherent shortcomings in size, energy storage capabilities, environmental hazards and extreme cost, as of yet are in limited use controlling large solar or wind systems. Researchers the world over are working hard to change that and with new developments in battery design, we are not too far off from seeing around-the-clock utilization of alternate energy. The United Kingdom is about to install and test EuLORNE rope’s largest battery bank. Rated at 6 MW / 10 MWh, the OJA lithium manganese oxide (LMO) battery will be used to modulate wind farm energy production and is expected to be operational, testing overall performance, by 2016. With an estimated cost of US$28.7 million, the system is relatively expensive. But development of these systems is estimated to provide a projected savings of US$4.6 billion a year in standard production cost by 2020. Japan as well is in the game, and they hope to have a 60 MWh system for regulating power from their wind farms, on the northern Island of Hokkaido, in service by 2015. It is into this market that the focus is being directed to lowering the cost of battery banks. Rare earth batteries such as lithium are expensive and research is ongoing to reduce these production costs. Researchers at the University of Maryland have been working on the marriage of common materials to produce large battery banks that are relatively inexpensive. Sodium ion batteries are their improvement to battery design; the idea was pursued because the sodium ion is abundant and is “environmentally benign.” Although the materials are common and inexpensive, they bring their own problems to the table. The biggest hurdle to overcome is a phenomenon known as “sodiation.” This causes the anode in the battery to swell by as much as 420 per cent and literally destroy it in as little as 20 cycles. Using a novel approach and an old and common material, wood fibre, researches Liangbing Hu and Teng Li have managed to create an anode that can withstand these extreme forces. Their prototype has been successfully cycled over 400 times with an initial capacity of 339 mAh/g. Wood fibre is, by nature, designed to move large quantities of mineral rich water and being very common, provides a perfect solution. To make it work, the researchers coated the wood fibre with a 10 nm (nanometer) single-walled carbon nanotubes followed by a tin film. Normally sodiation would destroy the brittle tin film but the soft wood fibres allow the sodium ion to move while absorbing the resulting mechanical stress. The sodium ion battery will never be used to replace lithium ion technology nor is it intended to do so. The intent is to provide large system modulation at relative low cost. The use of common materials that are found almost everywhere will go far in this pursuit.


Astronaut Karen Nyberg assists astronaut Luca Parmitano remove his space suit after the aborted spacewalk aboard the International Space Station on July 16. A dangerous water leak in the helmet of Parmitano drenched his eyes, nose and mouth, preventing him from hearing or speaking and what should have been a routine spacewalk came to an abrupt end. Parmitano said it seemed like an eternity — not just a few minutes — until he peered through “the curtain of water before my eyes” and spotted the hatch. Cassidy was close behind. The astronauts inside quickly began repressurizing the air lock, to get to the spacewalkers. “The water is now inside my ears and I’m completely cut off,” he said. He tried to stay as still as possible to keep the water from moving inside his helmet. He knew that because of the repressurization, he could always open his helmet if the water overwhelmed him. “I’ll probably lose consciousness, but in any case, that would be better than drowning inside the helmet,” he wrote.


Cassidy squeezed his glove. Parmitano managed to give the universal OK sign. “Finally, with an unexpected wave of relief,” Parmitano saw the internal door open, and the crew pulled him out and his helmet off. He remembers thanking his crewmates “without hearing their words because my ears and nose will still be full of water for a few minutes more.” NASA has traced the problem to his spacesuit backpack which is full of life-support equipment. But the precise cause is still unknown as the investigation continues into quite possibly the closest call ever during an American-led spacewalk.

Extra bite: mosquitoes are worse this summer in parts of U.S.; heat and heavy rain are blamed THE ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON — The tiny mosquito all too often has man on the run. And this summer, it seems even worse than usual. “You can’t get from the car to inside our house without getting attacked, it’s that bad,” high school teacher Ryan Miller said from his home in Arlington, Va. Minutes earlier, he saw a mosquito circling his 4-month-old daughter — indoors. Experts say it’s been a buggier-than-normal summer in many places around the U.S. because of a combination of drought, heavy rain and heat. It may be worst in the Southeast, which is getting hit with three years’ worth of bugs in one summer, said Jonathan Day, who studies insects at the University of Florida. Two years of drought were followed by incredibly heavy rain this year. During dry spells, mosquito eggs often didn’t get wet enough to hatch. This year’s rain revived those, along with the normal 2013 batch. In parts of Connecticut this summer, mosquito traps had double the usual number of bugs. Minnesota traps in July had about triple the 10-year average. And in central California, traps had five times as many of one key species as the recent average. Humans have been battling the blood-drinking bugs for thousands of years, and despite man’s huge advantages in technology and size, people are not getting the upper hand. Just lots of bites on the hand. “We have to keep fighting just to hold our own,” said Tom Wilmot,

past president of the Mosquito Control Association and a Michigan mosquito control district chief. And in some places, he said, the mosquitoes are winning. In southwestern Florida around Fort Myers, Lee County mosquito control was getting more than 300 calls per day from residents at times this summer, a much higher count than usual. But the more impressive tally was the number of bugs landing on inspectors’ unprotected legs: more than 100 a minute in some hotspots, said deputy director Shelly Radovan. Across Florida near Vero Beach, Roxanne Connelly said there have been some days

this month when she just wouldn’t go in the backyard. It’s been too bad even for her — and she’s a mosquito researcher at the University of Florida and head of the mosquito association. Many communities fight back by spraying pesticides, but mosquitoes are starting to win that battle, too, developing resistance to these chemicals. Soon many places could be out of effective weapons, Connelly and other mosquito-fighters said. Miller, who teaches environmental sciences, said he normally would oppose spraying but has been lobbying for the county to break out the pesticides this year. The

county told him there was no money in the budget and recommended he hire a private pest control business, he said. The type that buzzed his daughter — the Asian tiger mosquito, named for its striped body — hit the U.S. a quarter-century ago in a batch of imported scrap tires in Houston and eventually spread to the Northeast, the Midwest and, in 2011, the Los Angeles area. Climate change is also likely to worsen mosquito problems in general because the insects tend to do better in the hotter weather that experts forecast, said Chet Moore, a professor of medical entomology at Colorado State University.

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — The Italian astronaut who nearly drowned in his helmet during a spacewalk last month is sharing more details about the terrifying experience, revealing how he felt all alone and frantically tried to come up with a plan to save himself. Luca Parmitano wrote in his online blog, posted Tuesday, that he could no longer see as the water sloshed around in his helmet outside the International Space Station. “But worse than that, the water covers my nose — a really awful sensation that I make worse by my vain attempts to move the water by shaking my head,” the former test pilot wrote. “By now, the upper part of the helmet is full of water and I can’t even be sure that the next time I breathe I will fill my lungs with air and not liquid.” Parmitano, 36, a major in the Italian Air Force making just his second spacewalk, wasn’t sure which direction to head to reach the station’s hatch. He tried to contact his spacewalking partner, American Christopher Cassidy, and Mission Control. Their voices grew faint, and no one could hear him. “I’m alone. I frantically think of a plan. It’s vital that I get inside as quickly as possible,” he wrote. Parmitano realized Cassidy — making his way back to the air lock by a different route — could come get him. “But how much time do I have? It’s impossible to know,” he said. That’s when Parmitano remembered his safety cable. He used the cable recoil mechanism, and its three pounds of force, to “pull” him back to the hatch. On the way back, he pondered what he would do if water reached his mouth. The only idea he came up with, he said, was to open the safety valve on his helmet and let out some of the water. “But making a ‘hole’ in my spacesuit really would be a last resort,” he wrote.

Penn West cuts staff Penn West Petroleum (TSX:PWT) says it has cut 25 per cent of its workforce since the beginning of the year. The Calgary-based oil company says its head count now stands at 1,600. The company says it has reduced its staff by 30 per cent since last fall. CEO Dave Roberts says the move is meant to restore Penn West’s competitiveness. The company expects to take a $25-million charge in the third quarter in connection with the layoffs. Penn West warned of job cuts in June when it announced that Roberts would be replacing Murray Nunns as CEO and that the company would be cutting its quarterly dividend by half.

Number of EI beneficiaries rises Statistics Canada says the number of people receiving regular employment insurance benefits in June was up 0.9 per cent to 512,300. The government agency says the number of beneficiaries has recently been on a downward trajectory. It says the number of people receiving regular benefits declined 6.4 per cent compared with June 2012. There were increases in the number of beneficiaries in Alberta, Quebec and Newfoundland and Labrador, while there were decreases in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Prince Edward Island and the rest of the provinces saw little change. To receive EI benefits, individuals must first submit a claim and the number of claims provides an indication of the number of people who could become beneficiaries. After a decline in May, the number of initial and renewal claims was little changed in June, at 227,100, although claims were down 3.3 per cent compared with June 2012. —The Canadian Press

Wireless price war ‘not likely’ LIKELIHOOD OF VERIZON ENTERING CANADA’S TELECOM MARKET ‘50-50:’ TELUS CEO BY THE CANADIAN PRESS Consumers shouldn’t expect a price war if U.S. telecom giant Verizon enters the Canadian cellphone market, says the CEO of Telus, one of the country’s biggest wireless providers. “That’s typically not Verizon’s style,” chief executive Darren Entwistle said Thursday in an interview with The Canadian Press. “Their philosophy has been more on premium pricing,” he said, adding that Verizon’s focus would be on its business clients that have operations in Canada in the Montreal and Toronto areas. “So I think that mitigates the probability of a wider price war within the consumer market segment.” Entwistle added that he now thinks the likelihood of Verizon coming to Canada is “50-50.” And he isn’t the only one who thinks a price war is unlikely. Moody’s Investors Service also believes that Verizon’s entry into the Canadian market wouldn’t mean a price war, noting in a new report that the American giant would need to invest more than $3 billion just to

get started in Canada’s wireless industry. The battle would be more about the user experience than an all-out price war, because Verizon would need to develop a topquality network, which would be costly and time consuming, Moody’s said. “We do not believe a new competitor would launch a price war in order to gain market share, as its position would not be sufficiently low cost to support such an effort,” it said. Entwistle, meanwhile, noted that Telus (TSX:T), Rogers (TSX:RCI.B) and Bell (TSX:BCE) have taken a cumulative loss of $14.7 billion on the capital markets since word of Verizon possibly coming to Canadian broke in June. “A minor portion of that has been ameliorated, but essentially the loss is still in that particular zip code and that is deeply frustrating,” he said. “There’s been a slight improvement because there’s some speculation that is becoming more prevalent that Verizon is going to elect not to come to Canada. So that has supported a bit of the stock price recovery.” Verizon could not be reached for comment Thursday. The Globe and Mail has reported that Ve-

rizon is putting off a potential acquisition of new players Wind Mobile and Mobilicity and may only participate in the January 2014 auction for wireless spectrum, which will see telecom companies bidding on radio waves needed to make cellphone networks operate. Entwistle said he believes Verizon is more interested in lowering its own roaming costs and would focus on large markets such as Toronto and Montreal. “I don’t think they have a commitment to rural Canada,” he said. He noted that Verizon turned down money from the American telecom regulator to develop network infrastructure in rural areas south of the border. Verizon is planning to develop its own strategy for rural areas in the U.S. “If they’re not going to build in the rural U.S., they are sure as hell aren’t going to build in Canada within the rural domains,” he said. Entwistle repeated that he has no problem competing with Verizon, but wants a level playing field. Telus, Rogers and Bell have complained that Verizon is being given advantages since under the auction rules it’s treated like a new player entering the Canadian market.


Glitch halts trading BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK — Trading on the Nasdaq stock exchange halted for three hours Thursday, renewing concerns about the pitfalls of computer-driven trading. The outage disrupted what had otherwise been a quiet summer day on Wall Street, and sent brokers and traders scurrying to figure out what went wrong. It was the latest in a growing list of snafus to hit financial markets, though hardly as stunning as the “flash crash” that set off a sudden stock-market plunge in May 2010. “The market has gotten quite complex and needlessly so,” said Sal Arnuk, cofounder of the brokerage Themis Trading. The Nasdaq, a stock exchange dominated by the biggest names in technology, sent out an alert shortly after 12 p.m. EDT, saying it was stopping trading because of problems with its system for disseminating prices. The Nasdaq composite index spent much of the afternoon stuck at 3,631.17. Trading resumed at 3:25 p.m. EDT. Thirty-five minutes later, trading ended for the day with the index up 38 points, or 1 per cent, at 3,638.71. Nasdaq said it wouldn’t be cancelling any open orders, but that customers could cancel orders if they wanted to. The Nasdaq shutdown appeared to occur in an orderly fashion and didn’t upset other parts of the stock market. One stock that did take a hit was the parent company of the exchange, Nasdaq OMX. That stock fell $1.08, or 3.4 per cent, to close at $30.46 in heavy trading. In Canada, a spokeswoman for the TMX Group said the Toronto Stock Exchange was not affected by the disruption. Government agencies, the Treasury Department and the White House released statements saying they were following the disruption. “We are monitoring the situation and are in close contact with the exchanges,” said John Nester, a spokesman for the Se-


The Nasdaq logo is displayed on its building in New York, Thursday. Nasdaq halted trading Thursday because of a technical problem, the latest glitch to affect the stock market. curities and Exchange Commission. “This afternoon, the President was briefed by the White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough on this afternoon’s disruption of the Nasdaq,” said Josh Earnest, the White House’s principal deputy press secretary. It was another sign that the days of stock brokers in colorful jackets, roaming the floor of the stock exchange, have faded away. Now, powerful computer programs dominate trading by sifting through reams of data and executing trades in fractions of a second. That makes trading faster and, arguably, more efficient. But it also introduces more possibilities for errors that can jolt the entire market. Last year, BATS Global Markets tried

to go public on its own exchange but had to back out after a computer error sent the stock price plunging to just pennies. Facebook’s public offering last spring was also error-riddled, as technical problems kept many investors from knowing if their trades had gone through and left some holding unwanted shares. And in April, the Chicago Board Options Exchange shut down for a morning because of a software problem. Then there’s the 2010 “flash crash,” where the Dow Jones industrial average fell hundreds of points in minutes before eventually closing 348 points lower. It was one of the first major blips that brought the potential dangers of computer-driven, highfrequency trading into the public sphere.

Job vacancies fall in Canada BY THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA — The Canadian Federation of Independent Business says the number of job vacancies dropped slightly during the second quarter, an indication of a weaker labour market. The group representing small and medium-sized businesses says there were 289,800 unfilled jobs in the private sector during the April-July period, a drop of about 5,000 from the previous quarter. The estimate is higher than the 225,000 job vacancies reported by Statistics Canada in May, although the two surveys were in agreement that vacancies are dropping. CFIB chief economist Ted Mallet says the problem appears more acute for small businesses, which have a vacancy rate more than twice that of larger firms. The CFIB notes that, historically, vacancies fall as the un-


MINISTER JASON KENNEY employment rate rises. At 2.4 per cent of the market, the job vacancy rate in the CFIB survey remains higher than levels seen just following the recession, but lower than the 2.8 per cent pre-recession peak in late 2007 and early 2008, when the unemployment rate stood near six per cent. July saw the jobless rate rise one-tenth of a point to 7.2 per cent as the economy shed 39,000 workers. The small business lobby group released the survey results in advance of a “Twitter chat” Thursday afternoon with Employment and Social Development Minister Jason Kenney. During the online event, participants called for better labour market information, im-

proved vocational training to address skilled trades labour shortages and solutions to high youth and Aboriginal unemployment. The federal government, with support from business groups, has argued Canada faces an imminent labour shortage, requiring changes to employment insurance. “Acute labour shortages of skilled labour are a real problem in many regions... We need to ensure that Canadians have the skills needed to fill local labour shortages,” Kenney tweeted. “Key problem is the skills mismatch: too many jobs without people and people without jobs.” In the March budget, the gov-

ernment also pledged to create a jobs grant program whereby Ottawa, the provinces and businesses share equally — up to a total of $15,000 — in the cost of training a worker for an unfilled job. The so-called “job grant” has been opposed by some provinces as ill-thought-out and an intrusion on their jurisdiction. Some participants in the Twitter chat, mainly labour groups, questioned whether there actually is a labour shortage in Canada. In a statement, the Alberta Federation of Labour said the Twitter forum was meant to perpetuate the “labour shortage myth” and called the exercise a “cheap gimmick aimed at justifying low-wage policies like the expansion of the Temporary Foreign Worker program,” which enables companies to bring in workers from abroad to fill short-term needs.

MARKETS CLOSE TORONTO — The Toronto stock market closed higher Thursday with mining stocks leading gains on the back of strong manufacturing reports from China and Europe. The S&P/TSX composite index jumped 101.2 points to 12,674.35. Traders’ patience was sorely tried after technical difficulties led to a halt of Nasdaq traded stocks from around midday to about half an hour before the 4 p.m. EDT close. The index closed up 38.92 points at 3,638.71. The Nasdaq exchange in New York sent out an alert to traders shortly after noon saying that trading was being halted because of problems with a quote dissemination system. Elsewhere in New York, the Dow Jones industrial average was ahead 66.19 points to 14,963.74 and the S&P 500 index up 14.16 points to 1,656.96. The Canadian dollar was lower amid retail sales data for June that was much weaker than economists were expecting. The currency closed down 0.39 of a cent at 95.09 cents US after Statistics Canada reported that retail sales fell by 0.6 per cent. Economists had forecast a 0.4 per cent dip following a strong 1.9 per cent rise in May. Also, the American currency continued to strengthen after the minutes of the last Federal Reserve policy meeting, published Wednesday, showed most officials appeared comfortable with the idea of starting to reduce the Fed’s monetary stimulus this year. There was some disappointment that the Fed minutes didn’t contain clarity over whether the so-called tapering will begin in September or December. The Fed has been purchasing $85 billion of financial assets a month to lower interest rates and spur growth. The asset purchases have also helped keep a strong rally going on U.S. markets. But the mood improved Thursday after a survey from HSBC provided further evidence that China, the world’s second-largest economy, may be over its recent soft patch. Its monthly purchasing managers’ index, a gauge of business activity, rose to 50.1 points for August from July’s 47.7. Numbers above 50 indicate an expansion in activity. Meanwhile, the monthly composite PMI, which includes both manufacturing and services for the 17-country eurozone, rose to 51.7 in August from 50.4. The index, published by financial information company Markit, is

now at its highest level since June 2011 and provides further evidence that the eurozone recovery from recession is gathering pace. The positive data helped send oil and metal prices higher. The mining sector led advancers, up 4.18 per cent as September copper on the Nymex gained two cents to US$3.33 a pound. HudBay Minerals (TSX:HBM) improved by 35 cents to C$7.05 while Teck Resources (TSX:TCK.B) climbed $1.05 to $27.33. The gold sector rose about 1.8 per cent while December bullion edged up 70 cents to US$1,370.80 an ounce. Barrick Gold Corp. (TSX:ABX) rose 61 cents to C$20.57. The Toronto-based company announced earlier Thursday that it will receive $300 million from the sale of three mines in Western Australia to South Africabased Gold Fields Ltd. The energy sector rose almost one per cent as the October crude contract on the New York Mercantile Exchange climbed $1.18 to US$105.03 a barrel. Suncor Energy (TSX:SU) was up 53 cents to C$35.38. Outside of the resource groups, the industrials component was up 1.6 per cent with Canadian Pacific Railway (TSX:CP) ahead $4.42 to $128.33. The financial sector climbed 0.55 per cent as Manulife Financial (TSX:MFC) improved by 37 cents to $17.49. On the corporate front, HewlettPackard shares fell 12.45 per cent to US$22.22 after the company missed on earnings and revenue in the latest quarter. Revenue fell eight per cent to $27.2 billion and earnings ex-items came in at 86 cents a share. Analysts had expected earnings of 87 cents per share on revenue of $27.3 billion, according to FactSet. Shares in Abercrombie & Fitch plunged 17.67 per cent to US$38.53 as the retailer to teens missed analysts estimates and also gave a third-quarter earnings forecast well below expectations. The company earned US$11.4 million, or 14 cents per share. That’s down from $17.1 million, or 20 cents per share, a year earlier. Revenue dipped one per cent to $945.7 million while U.S. sales fell eight per cent. Analysts had expected earnings of 28 cents per share on revenue of $996.7 million.

American Airlines, US Airways ask for court date on lawsuit to block merger BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS DALLAS — American Airlines and US Airways want a trial in the government’s lawsuit against their proposed merger to start in November, three months sooner than the date picked by federal officials. The airlines estimated that the trial would last 10 days, meaning that even if they win, the merger won’t close until late this year. American parent AMR Corp. had hoped to complete the merger and come out of bankruptcy protection in September. It said in a court filing Thursday that the delay is costing AMR $500,000 a day in professional fees such as lawyers’ bills for its bankruptcy case. The merger was steaming toward final approval this month until the

E OF M O H ,000 0 1 $ THE SH CA AY W GIVEA

U.S. Justice Department and six states threw up a roadblock. They filed a lawsuit in federal district court in Washington, D.C., to stop the merger, saying it will reduce competition and lead to higher fares and extra fees for consumers. The Justice Department favours a trial starting no sooner than Feb. 10. The case might never get to trial. The airlines are likely to keep trying to negotiate a settlement that would require concessions — at a minimum, giving up takeoff and landing slots at Reagan National Airport outside Washington — but allow the merger to go ahead. Publicly, however, both sides have sounded as if they’re ready to fight, not talk. The airlines asked the court for a Nov. 12 trial. The Justice Department hasn’t yet requested a date.

Dorel to assemble bikes after buying Brazil’s largest bike maker THE CANADIAN PRESS MONTREAL — Dorel Industries will manufacture bikes in-house for the first time since it entered the business nine years ago, after acquiring a majority stake in a Caloi, a South American bicycle manufacturer. A factory owned by Caloi in northern Brazil will assemble Dorel’s Cannondale, Schwinn, Mongoose and GT bike brands for the Brazilian and export markets. “It’s a major foothold into South America,” chief executive Martin Schwartz said Thursday. “The fact that they’ve got a fairly large, fairly efficient factory in Brazil gives us a lot of latitude to do a lot of different things.” Schwartz wouldn’t provide the exact purchase price for the 70-per cent stake, but some estimates suggested the acquisition will cost about $100 million, based on typical margins for such a business. Until now, Dorel (TSX:DII.B) has relied on contracts with manufacturers in China and Taiwan to make its various bicycle lines. Caloi’s manufacturing plant in Manaus, Brazil produces more than 750,000 bikes a year and could assemble at least 15 per cent of Dorel’s global product line, he said. While Brazilian labour costs are on par, or even higher than, in Asia, the decision to manufacture in South America’s largest country will allow Dorel to avoid hefty import duties, Schwartz said. It could also pave the way for exports to Europe by bypassing high duties imposed on goods made in Asia.

tablish its own production hub and allow the company to more easily introduce its popular brands into the growing Brazilian market. “I think it’s a good fit for them,” he said in an interview. “There’s a noticeable shift right now in Brazil where the market is moving more upscale.” The analyst added he doesn’t think moving into production marks a shift in strategy for Dorel, but instead will be a cheaper way to boost sales while avoiding costly duties. “If you want to sell bikes in Brazil you have to manufacture them in Brazil. “That’s just the nature of the beast there,” he said.

Schwartz said the bikes will not be shipped to the U.S. market, but that producing parts and assembling in Brazil will allow the company to benefit from lower costs and duties imposed on imports to Brazil. Dorel said Caloi is Latin America’s largest bicycle brand and has an estimated market share in Brazil of more than 40 per cent. Founded in 1898, Caloi makes a full range of bicycles from highperformance to children’s models, including mountain bikes, urban, recreational and road bikes.

“First,” this author says, “forget the anthropomorphisms.” Dogs are not people. They don’t need a raincoat for the rain, are not necessarily depressed when they look at you with sad eyes, and they probably don’t want a lavender bath. Discovering the “umwelt” of a dog, understanding his abilities, experience and communication will help us see how the world of the dog and his owner overlap and how they differ. What a dog smells (lots!), sees and hears helps them make sense of their world, and they do most of it from two feet off the ground. The author starts out by talking about wolves, the ancestor of the domestic dog. She traces our present-day pets down through the ages, including specialized breeding of foxes. So we come to Fido. First the nose. People have six million sensory receptor sites compared to sheepdog noses with two hundred million. Beagles have three hundred million. No wonder they don’t want a lavender bath! A walk through the park is a veritable symphony of smells. Ears that may be soft and velvety, floppy or upright, don’t miss much. The audio range of humans is 20 hertz to 20 kilohertz from lowest pitch to a high squeak. Dogs detect sounds up to 45 kilohertz. That’s ultrasonic. Of course, barking is done in many different tones and indicates many attitudes. Entreaties for company or warning of strangers. Sometimes barking is contagious — we’ve all heard of the famous “midnight bark.” This book may tell you all you ever wanted to know about dogs and their traits. The author talks about ball-chasing dogs and “anthropologist” dogs. Some long-nosed dogs will chase a ball forever and the anthropologist dogs are “students of behaviour.” They study us. “They know what is typical and what is different. They don’t grow tired of the study, and they don’t grow up to be us.” Many questions are asked in this study. Can dogs really tell time? Do they know what a day is? Do they see themselves in a mirror? Do they have a sense of self? “Does he have memories of his life?’ Or is a dog’s memory like Snoopy’s: “Yesterday I was a dog, today I’m a dog, tomorrow I’ll probably be a dog.” Finally, there is the question of right and wrong. Does a dog know when he’s getting a scolding, does the lowered head and the slinking off to bed mean anything? Well, his owner’s look of displeasure, now that’s gotta hurt. This author believes dogs should be allowed to be dogs — roll in it, sleep on it, dump it out and smell it, it’s a doggy world. I don’t like to give the story away, but I have to believe that after 300 pages of studies, there are a lot of things that just don’t matter to a dog. They sleep, they eat, they bark, they love us. It’s all good. Peggy Freeman is a local freelance books reviewer.


BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK — Adam Carolla has a dream. The actor-comedian and host of The Adam Carolla Show has a deal with HarperCollins imprint It Books for President Me, a blueprint for the world he’d like to see. It Books announced Wednesday that President Me will come out in June 2014. It will feature Carolla’s “pointed, hilarious rants.” Not everyone has been amused. Carolla has been criticized in recent years for his remarks about Filipinos, transgender people and women comics. Carolla’s previous books include the bestsellers In Fifty Years We’ll All Be Chicks and Not Taco Bell Material. He has been crowdfunding a movie about comedians called Road Hard. He plans to write, direct and star in it.

A pair of lesser yellowlegs hang out in a slough southeast of Red Deer. These fearless birds have been seen chasing off gulls and raptors from nesting and feeding grounds, accompanied by a cacophonous rhapsody of calls. They were also widely hunted as a delicacy but now enjoy full protection. Red Deer is the southerly edge of the yellowlegs’ summer range. They winter in the West Indies and South America.

Tech N9ne, the Kansas City speed rap pioneer and co-founder of the Strange Music recording company, will bust a rhyme on Monday at the Lotus Nightclub as part of his Something Else Canadian Tour from Montreal to Vancouver.

Rap at the speed of Tech N9ne BY ADVOCATE STAFF

Tech N9ne, the American indie rapper who’s sold over a million albums and collaborated with Cee Lo Green, T-Pain, Snoop Dogg, will perform this month in Red Deer. The Kansas City speed rap pioneer and co-founder of the Strange Music recording company will bust a rhyme on Monday at the Lotus Nightclub, as part of his Something Else Canadian Tour from Montreal to Vancouver. Tech N9ne (born Aaron Dontez Yates) had an unstable childhood in Missouri. He never knew his father and his mother had physical disabilities, which left him searching for answers in religion and music. His first rapping stints were in the 1990s with

groups called Black Mafia, Nnutthowze and The Regime, formed by Yukmouth. By 2001, he had co-founded Strange Music and was releasing albums, including Absolute Power, which tripled in sales following Tech N9ne’s decision to offer legal downloads to listeners through his website. It was his personal protest against anti-downloading campaigns. In 2007, his album Killer was released and Tech N9ne exceeded one million in sales over this entire catalogue — an amazing accomplishment for an independent artist. His 13th studio album, Something Else, came out to critical acclaim earlier this summer. The first single from it, B.I.T.C.H. (an acronym for Breaking In To Coloured Houses), features rapper/singer T-Pain.

The release is broken into three sections called Earth, Water and Fire, and also features guest appearances by Green, The Doors, Game, Wiz Kalifa, B.o.B., Big K.R.I.T and Kendrick Lamar, among others. Tech N9ne, who was influenced by old school hiphip, is known for his dynamic rhyme schemes, speed rapping skills, and songs that touch on weightier issues, including abortion and infidelity. Several of his tunes have appeared in films, including Alpha Dog, and Born 2 Race, TV serials, including The Hills, and video games, such as Madden NFL 2006 and Midnight Club. Tickets are $35 in advance or $40 at the door. For more information about the show at 4618 50th Ave., call 403-346-1101.

The Butler an inspired history lesson THERE’S A QUEST FOR WHOLENESS AT THE HEART OF THE STORY The Butler 2.5 stars (out of four) Rated: 14A Lee Daniels’ The Butler serves up multiple stories of great moment and purpose over more than 80 years of U.S. ferment, and they’re almost too much for one movie to bear. The film is the factually PETER “inspired” account of one HOWELL black butler’s devotion to eight U.S. presidents in the aptly named White House. It’s an emotional father/son love story across multiple decades. The Butler is also a sweeping history of the American civil rights movement, from the cotton-field slavery of the 1920s through the social unrest of the 1960s and up to the 2008 election of Barack Obama as the first African-American U.S. president. To pack all this and more into a two-hour movie seems like madness, especially considering that title character Cecil Gaines (played by Forest Whitaker and loosely based on real White House butler Eu-


gene Allen) is required to keep his emotions bottled up for most of the film. It’s a bravura feat that is almost entirely interior, a marvel of containment, but we can always intuit what he’s thinking. Cecil’s job serving America’s top leader requires absolute focus and discretion: “You hear nothing, you say nothing. You only serve,” he’s told on Day 1 of his White House assignment. That’s tough to illustrate, much less make dramatic, but Daniels (Precious, The Paperboy) has never been one to shirk from a challenge. And this one comes with the Oscar catnip of not only Whitaker’s shining performance but also strong turns by Oprah Winfrey (as Cecil’s alcoholic wife Gloria) and David Oyelowo (as Cecil’s righteous and rebellious son Louis). The movie opens in current times, with a 90-yearold Cecil staring at a portrait of George Washington, as he awaits a White House meeting that will symbolize his life’s work and dreams. Daniels and screenwriter Danny Strong (Game Change) soon flash us back to Cecil’s younger days, as a cotton picker in Macon, Ga., where he witnesses horrific brutality to his family at the hands of a racist white sharecropper. A plantation elder (Vanessa Redgrave) takes pity on young Cecil and, in a gesture considered kindly for the era, she promises to train him to be a “house n---er” so he can escape violence.

Can good dads make for good TV? BY WILLA PASKIN ADVOCATE NEWS SERVICES NEW YORK — Modern Dads, A&E’s new reality show about four fathers performing primary child care, premiering this week, is proof that something positive can come from even the worst junk. The junk in this case was NBC’s flaccid multicamera sitcom Guys With Kids, about exactly what its title says, which lingered on for much of last season. Modern Dads is the reality TV version of Guys with Kids — just as Laguna Beach was the reality TV version of The O.C., and The Real Housewives of Orange County the reality TV version of Desperate Housewives — and the genre jump is a serious upgrade. Unlike on its scripted predecessor, on Modern Dads, fathers actually like their children and their spouses. Modern Dads is filmed in Austin and follows four fathers in their late 30s and early 40s. The dads are Nathan, a nervous new father to a just-walking son; Stone, a single dad and the crew’s resident Romeo; Sean, rapscallion stepfather to two girls; and Rick, the portly veteran with two sons and twin infant daughters. The premiere episode does what it can to wring drama out of lives dominated by trips to the playground and well-packed strollers, opening in black and white with Nathan saying, “In my line of work, there’s blood, sweat and tears,� and Rick offering, “Your mind wanders for two seconds, someone gets killed.� But by the time the colour kicks in, the show’s true stakes are revealed: there’s a lot more planning of princess parties than wrestling with mortality. The low-key happenings on Modern Dads do not make for reality TV trash nirvana, but they are an antidote to the war-of-the-sexes and I-love-my-kidsbut-they-really-cramp-my-style cracks that are so often found on sitcoms, going all the way back to The Honeymooners and I Love Lucy. Here are four men who do the diapers and the housework and are not emasculated by it. They are not bitter and paranoid. Every day is not a referendum on their machismo. Their marriages are partnerships. Their kids are not cock-blocking burdens, but tiny humans they genuinely enjoy. At the end of an episode in which Nate has been neurotically baby-proofing his home for hours and hours, he says, his voice cracking, “I am madly in love with my son.� It’s not an original sentiment, but it is one you rarely see on a TV show. In one storyline that would, on almost any sitcom, have been a long riff on the obsolescence of men, Sean tries to build a medieval stock for Rick’s daughters’ princess party. He buys some two-by-fours and gets to power-sawing, while both he and his girlfriend, Rachel, do on-camera interviews about how Sean does not know how to build a thing and Rachel invariably “does all the woodworking and crafts in the house.� After a couple of attempts, Rachel and Sean amiably decide he’s going to go have a tea party with the girls, and she’s going to deal with the power tools. The takeaway is not that Rachel wears the pants in the family, but that both Rachel and Sean are comfortable and aware of their different skill sets. To top it off, the punch line is at the opposite of Sean’s expense. Rachel tells the camera, “I love my boyfriend, he is the best dad, but the only tool he is good with is the one he was born with.� Really, that’s the only one that matters. Being an engaged and decent father is not a recommendation for being on a reality show — it’s probably actually something of a demerit. The guys on Modern Dads don’t have the verbal shimmy or outlandish instincts of reality TV naturals. They really are here to make friends and their show can be correspondingly bland. But blandness in this context is so preferable to the alternative. It’s easy to imagine some horror-show version of Modern Dads, one starring a bunch of dudes more interested in getting famous than in their kids, desperate for attention and happy to use their children as adorable accessories, trying to balance juvenile behavior with child-rearing. Just for not being that, Modern Dads gets a pass. If it’s not a terrific reality show, at least it’s not terrific for a terrific reason: the dads’ priorities are too much in order for them to be great entertainment.

While the world is ending, The Wall: Cut off in the they’ll have another round outside world BY JEN CHANEY ADVOCATE


NEWS SERVICES We’ve seen the world crumble dozens of times in this, the summer of mass destruction movies. We’ve watched Kryptonians destroy major cities (Man of Steel), Brad Pitt battle his way through a zombiepocalypse (World War Z), behemoths rise from beneath the sea (Pacific Rim) and the Rapture ruin an otherwise killer party at James Franco’s house (This Is the End). But we haven’t seen the breakdown of social order depicted with as much wit — that’s right, apocalypses can be fun! — as director Edgar Wright and actors Simon Pegg and Nick Frost bring to The World’s End. This British trio first broke out stateside with 2004’s Shaun of the Dead, a cult favorite that invented a new cinematic category, the zombie rom-com. The World’s End pulls off a similar crosstonal trick by merging the overplayed Armageddon genre with the equally overplayed arrested-male-adolescent trope and creating the sci-fi, coming-of-middle-age, apocalypticacomedy. The World’s End understands that entering one’s 40s often feels like the end of the world, so it asks, “Hey, what if after hitting 40, it turned out the world actually was ending?” It’s a twisted, boozy, tongue-in-cheek window into the early-’90s-nostalgic soul of Generation X. No Gen Xer is more nostalgic for the early ‘90s than 40-something Gary King (Pegg), the severely alcoholic misfit at the heart of The World’s End. Gary has not moved beyond the night that he and four of his closest school buddies attempted a pub crawl but failed to make it to their final destination, a bar called the World’s End. More than two decades later and still wearing his uniform of a


quick and lets the jokes fly (“It’s like seeing a lion eating hummus!” Gary gasps as he watches Frost’s Andy sip water instead of beer). The World’s End marks the final installment in the loosely defined trilogy that included Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. But let’s hope Wright, Pegg and Frost concoct more wild doomsday scenarios together. Their work makes for a good time at the movies and, in the case of The World’s End, closes this year’s apocalyptic summer movie season on a destructive yet pleasing note.

The idea of escaping to the idyllic solitude of a Walden-like locale has an allure in our hyperdigital age. But there’s a flip side, which comes quietly and unsettlingly to life in The Wall, Austrian filmmaker Julian Polsler’s adaptation of Marlen Haushofer’s 1963 novel. Thoreau could return to society whenever he pleased; the protagonist in The Wall doesn’t have that luxury. The film is told mainly in flashbacks as an unnamed woman (played by the terrific German actress Martina Gedeck, known for The Lives of Others) scribbles on sheets of paper the strange incidents that have befallen her since arriving at a remote Alpine hunting cabin years earlier. A hypochondriac collector had invited the woman to his home to explore his acquisitions, but after he and his wife set off for a nearby village, she is alone — and, after an invisible, soundproof wall mysteriously materializes, left completely isolated and trapped in the mountain valley. The woman can’t seem to find a way out, but even if she could, it seems she may not want to leave. As she explores the perimeter of her confinement, she sees people on the other side, and the alternative looks bleak. Men and women appear to be frozen in time. So she sets about discovering how to live alone in the wilderness. She harvests wheat, learns to hunt, chops wood and talks to her growing brood of companions, which includes not only an adorable pooch, Lynx, but also a cow and a cat. Although there are a couple of startling events — the appearance of the wall and a late episode of violence — much of the story consists of everyday life, which comes off as a routine rather than anything off of Survivor. Polsler’s film is quietly deliberate without ever feeling slow, thanks to a few handy assets at his disposal. The first is the setting — mountains, forest and streams inhabited by little more than herds of roaming stags. Nearly every shot looks like a stunning example of nature photography. The surroundings and low-key action mesmerize the way a snow globe might. The flashback setup also benefits from an understated tension. There are differences between the narrator we see reminiscing about her isolation and the woman who appears in those scenes. Some questions about the story creep in over the course of the film. The narrator never mentions family or missing friends, and her attempts to escape her enclosure feel a bit halfhearted. But these irritations are small in comparison to the larger questions that dog the viewer in more provocative ways long after the movie has ended. Uncertainties like: Would I have what it takes to survive in that situation? It might even give audiences a new appreciation for honking horns.

Simon Pegg, far right, along with his buddies play former classmates who convene for a boozy trip down memory lane in the witty The World’s End. trench coat and Sisters of Mercy T-shirt, Gary persuades his now older, more mature friends (played by Frost, Sherlock’s Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine and Eddie Marsan) to return to Newton Haven, England, and complete the crawl. But in the middle of their malty, hoppy trip down memory lane, something alarming happens; they get attacked by unanticipated forces and quickly realize their home town is no longer what it once was. To say much more about The World’s End’s version of Armageddon would drain the movie of its ability to giddily blindside its audience. Let’s just say those unanticipated forces are robotic and kinda goopy when decapitated. Besides, this movie’s pleasures are less about its villains and more about the interplay between Pegg and Frost. After serving as the childish dimwit to Pegg’s


BUTLER: Casting choices frequently inspired Some 31 years and a mentor or two later, Cecil finds himself with a wife and two young sons and a new job as butler to President Dwight D. Eisenhower (Robin Williams) at the start of Ike’s second term of office. The clock seems to tick faster as Cecil gets to know the White House backstage routines, with the kibitzing help of a cook and a fellow butler, played by Cuba Gooding Jr. and Lenny Kravitz, respectively. He’s obliged to keep up with changing administrations, from Republican to Democratic and back again, as Eisenhower is followed by John F. Kennedy (James Marsden), Lyndon B. Johnson (Liev Schreiber), Richard Nixon (John Cusack) and later Ronald Reagan (Alan Rickman). A few presidents are skipped, wisely, avoiding a numbing countdown and allowing us to savour presidential turns that sometimes yield to caricature but are never less than entertaining. Some are even revealing, as is the case with Rickman’s multi-layered Reagan. Outside of the dignified calm of the White House, there’s a riot goin’ on, with racially charged civil

more responsible grownups in Shaun of the Dead and its follow-up, the buddy cop/action parody Hot Fuzz, Frost finally gets to play the straightlacer, and Pegg, the infantile, manic pint-chugger. It’s clearly a blast for them to flip the script, especially for Pegg, who liberates himself physically and vocally. To catch every word in some of his rat-a-tat sentences, one may need to see The World’s End three times. When an insane barroom brawl repeatedly thwarts Gary’s attempts to sip a cold one, Pegg hurls himself into exasperation mode with an energy reminiscent of John Cleese during a Basil Fawlty fit. Wright, who wrote the screenplay with Pegg, directs with the same wry zip he brought to the trio’s previous collaborations, as well as 2010’s Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.” He keeps the pace

rights confrontations that involve Cecil’s headstrong son Louis, who is determined to participate in every protest going, from diner sit-ins to Freedom Rides to Black Panther fist-waving. The life roles of Cecil and Louis couldn’t be different, something Daniels underscores by cutting between scenes of the father sedately serving toffs while the son is noisily assaulted by racist yokels. The tension between a father espousing devotion and dignity and a son demanding justice helps maintain continuity in The Butler, as does another subplot involving Gloria’s depression and her illicit interest in a neighbour (Terrence Howard). Love bonds are really put to the test in the film. Daniels isn’t the most subtle of directors, but he’s an arresting one. His casting choices are frequently inspired and he can be surprisingly conservative. The soundtrack, for example, has more classical music in it than it does rock, soul and R&B. “We got two faces: ours and the ones we’ve got to show white people,” Cecil says in The Butler, giving voice to America’s unjust racial divide. The film covers a lot of ground with many players, sometimes risking collapse, but it never lets us forget the quest for wholeness at the heart of the story.

DELANEY Jean Jan. 15, 1933 - Aug. 6, 2013 It is with immense sadness that Jean’s family announces her peaceful passing on the morning of August 6th, 2013. Beatrice Jean was born in Innisfail, AB on January 15, 1933 to Bill and Ivy Lewis, and was raised on the family farm with her brothers, Jim, Bob and George, in Spruceview, AB. After completing her education, Jean joined the RCAF where she met and married Bill Delaney. Their union produced three sons, Keith, Kevin and Craig. After retiring from the RCAF in 1968, the family moved to Red Deer, AB to be close to Jean’s family. Jean and Bill divorced in 1971, at which time she embraced raising her three boys on her own, creating a very special family bond. She was their biggest cheerleader and always supported every endeavor with love and wisdom. She was incredibly close to her grandchildren, Ryan, Trisha and Danielle, Katie and Cody, and her five great grandchildren. Jean also had very loving relationships with all of her nieces and nephews, brothers and sister-in-laws, and always made everyone feel special. During her brief battle with cancer she constantly reassured everyone that things were going to be ok, more concerned for those left behind than herself. She showed the same strength and courage as her mother Ivy possessed during her own battle with cancer. We had seen this strength nine years ago when she lost Keith, remaining by his side until the end. Jean is survived by her two sons and their families; Kevin and Evelyn (Danielle, Katie and Cody) and Craig and Tricia, and Keith’s children, Ryan and Trisha and their families. She is also survived by her brother George and his wife Helen, and far too many nieces, nephews and friends to mention. Every one of them held a special place in Aunty Jean’s heart, and her in theirs. Her loss has left an immense hole in our family and she will be truly missed. Jean was predeceased by her parents, Ivy and Bill, her brothers Bob and Jim, and her beloved son, Keith. Jean’s family would like to convey a special thank you to Wendy Parcels, who cared for Jean throughout her sickness. Your love, kindness and care for Jean made this journey easier for all of us. We truly appreciate all you have done. A celebration of Jean’s life and accomplishments will be held at Gaetz Memorial United Church, 4758 - 50 Street, Red Deer, AB on Saturday, August 31, 2013 at 1:00 p.m. with a reception to follow at the Red Deer Lodge, 4311 49 Avenue, Red Deer, AB. Condolences may be forwarded to the family by visiting Have a safe journey Mom.† We love you!
