Emergency crews work at the scene of a train derailment near Gainford, west of Edmonton, on Sunday. There were explosions reported and the community was evacuated as a precaution.

CN defends safety record THIRD DERAILMENT IN A MONTH, FORCES EVACUATION OF ALBERTA COMMUNITY BY THE CANADIAN PRESS GAINFORD, Alta. — CN Rail is defending its safety record after three high-profile derailments involving trains carrying hazardous materials within the space of a month while apol-

ogizing for the latest mishap. Thirteen cars on a CN (TSX:CNR) freight train carrying a cargo of oil and liquefied petroleum gas went off the rails near the tiny hamlet of Gainford, about 80 km west of Edmonton, early Saturday morning. There were two explosions reported

and the community was evacuated as a precaution. The situation was so volatile that firefighters simply backed off and let the fire burn itself out. They estimated it could take at least 24 hours for that to happen and told a news conference late Saturday that

it could be up to 72 hours before residents could return to their homes. Saturday’s mishap occurred two days after residents in the Alberta community of Sexsmith were forced from their homes.

Pheasants freed Fundraiser for Jaysen brings cash, plea to help foreign workers BY BRENDA KOSSOWAN ADVOCATE STAFF

The release this fall of more than 16,000 pheasants at key locations in Central and Southern Alberta — including sites around Buffalo Lake and Red Deer — marks what conservationists hope is a fresh start in gamebird management. Starting in the early 1900s, ringneck pheasants have been raised in captivity and then released into Alberta’s wilds to provide hunting opportunities for enthusiasts and their dogs, rancher and businessman Stan Grad, co-founder of Upland Birds Alberta said on Saturday. A few of the handsome birds and their less flamboyant mates, native to Asia, manage to survive and raise young in rougher and more isolated areas, where they can run out and grab some grain and then hide in heavy bush.

RIVERSIDE MEADOWS MURAL

Contributed photo

Shirley Hocken stands in front of a large photographic mural depicting Riverside Meadows’ past, present and future. The mural, which was unveiled on Saturday, cost $3,600. It is on the west wall of the neighbourhood’s community centre at 6021 57th Ave. and incorporates archival photos, as well as new ones taken by local photographer Mirjam Rand. It also features a digital art border. The two-by-four-metre mural was funded by money left over from the community’s centennial celebrations budget from 2011, said Hocken, chair of the Riverside Meadows’ centennial committee. The mural was composed by Red Deer artist Carol Lynn Gilchrist. It was unveiled during a ceremony at the Riverside Meadows Community Centre.

STORIES FROM PAGE A1

ISSUES: The big picture While those issues are being dealt with, Migrante Alberta says members of the public as well as the thousands of temporary workers being brought to Canada need a better understanding of the big picture. That picture includes the abuses many workers suffer because they are unaware of the protections available to them, Luciano said during a discussion held after viewing a documentary focussing on temporary foreign workers in Canada. Montreal filmmakers Marie Boti and Malcolm Guy, supported by provincial and federal grants, created The End of Immigration? to give an overview of various aspects of the program, including interviews with employers, government officials, non-government agencies and workers. Danilo De Leon, an Edmonton carwash worker featured in the documentary, told the gathering afterward that he and his fellow workers desperately need their stories to be heard by Canadian citizens, employers and government as well as by workers who are or who are becoming involved in the program. Migrant workers come to Canada unprepared for the hardships and sacrifices they will make in their efforts to improve conditions for themselves and support their families at home, said De Leon. They are charged heavy fees that are against the law, they may be paid less than local workers, and they are not told about the rights and protections available to them, he said. Luciano compared the migration of workers to Canada from places like the Philippines to a slave trade. Workers coming to Canada are not informed of the guaranteed to them under Canadian law, he said. They are told where to send their money and given some orientation on cold weather and Canadian culture, but no one is giving them vital information that would protect them from abuse in the workplace. Some agencies and churches are trying to fill the gaps, but there are situations in their employment where workers are not able to exercise those rights, said Luciano. There is no mechanism that looks into the workplace to ensure that people are being properly paid and properly treated, he said. “A lot of Canadians do not know what is going on. Meanwhile, migrants are pitted against Canadian

workers, for, quote-unquote, stealing their jobs,” said Luciano. However, in their documentary, Boti and Guy describe a situation in which a rapidly growing number of migrants are being brought from other countries, especially the Philippines, to do jobs that Canadian workers won’t take. One Red Deer employer says in the film he can’t keep local workers for more than two weeks, because they get snatched up by better offers from the oilfield. “These migrants came here as a source of cheap labour. We want you to tell our story,” said Luciano. Jhong de la Cruz Red Deer nurse Jhong de la Cruz said after the meeting that the operators of Fas Gas have been supportive of Reyes and are working on bringing his mother from the Philippines so she can be with him. She is still awaiting approval for her entry visa, said de la Cruz, who is a permanent resident awaiting his citizenship. Parkland Fuel purchased 100 tickets for the event and a trust accounts has been set up at Scotiabank to collect donations for Reyes. bkossowan@reddeeradvocate.com

BIRDS: Can fall prey But many fall prey to coyotes and raptors because they cannot find sufficient cover and food sources close together, so the captivity program has been necessary to sustain populations for hunting, said Grad. “In the 60s and 70s and 80s, there was great habitat and lots of wild pheasants. Alberta was known for its great population of wild birds,” said Grad. Movie actors and other high profile people would come up from the United States for the fall pheasant season, injecting thousands of dollars into communities like Vauxhall and Brooks. Grad said he became alarmed when he learned that there had been a big drop in the number of birds being released, from 70,000 birds 20 years ago to under 7,000 in more recent years. The number of bird hunters had also decreased, but flattened out couple of years ago and is now starting to rise, with increased interest among women and youths, said Grad.

There are some areas where the wild populations are holding their own, and populations of native species such as Hungarian partridges and spruce grouse are actually starting to rise. But Alberta needs more pheasants to populate those areas where they have not been able to thrive on their own, says Grad. Along with the ongoing loss of natural habitat, the recent bankruptcy of a Brooks-area company that had been raising large numbers of pheasants has severely reduced the available supply of replacement birds, he said. About four years ago, Grad pulled together a group of like-minded individuals to look at those numbers and start working on sources for birds to be released in areas where the wild populations are not being sustained. “In recognizing this increased need for more birds and that, ultimately, the government was going to drop pheasants altogether, . . . we decided that the first thing we needed to do is raise a little money (and) do an economic impact study for the province.” Upland Birds Alberta was formed to raise the money, perform the study, and find a way to put new energy into the province’s pheasant release program. Grad and company raised nearly one quarter of a million dollars, opened a bank account and hired a consultant, Ken Bailey, formerly from Ducks Unlimited. The group then went to work with DU, the Alberta Conservation Association and Nature Conservancy Canada to perform the study and develop a management strategy. They learned that every dollar spent on tags and birds spun into $9 in economic impact in areas where the birds were released. UBA went on to purchase hybrid pheasants from a supplier in Wisconsin to supplement the pheasant program in Alberta, finding the hybrids to be a bit smaller and hardier than the ringnecks that were traditionally released here, said Grad. There were still some questions, however, about who would raise the money and manage the program over the long term, he said. Sustainable Resource Development really didn’t want it, said Grad. His group did not feel capable of taking the job. The ACA was ready, however, and has now signed an agreement with SRD to manage the release program in 2014, relieving the UBA of those responsibilities. Grad believes the new agreement will turn things around for people who like to hunt pheasants, meaning there will be some reduction in future in the pressure they put on populations of native birds. bkossowan@reddeeradvocate.com

STORY FROM PAGE A1

DERAILMENT: Residents to remain evacuated for two more days Four CN rail cars carrying anhydrous ammonia left the rails at Sexsmith. That followed the derailment of 17 CN rail cars, some carrying petroleum, ethanol and chemicals, in western Saskatchewan on Sept. 25. There were no injuries in any of the derailments. Officials said residents of a village who were forced from their homes after a train wreck and fire were expected to be out of their homes for up to two more days. Parkland County issued a news release on Sunday stating that its mandatory evacuation order affecting about 100 people in Gainford remains in effect. CN said late Sunday that a “controlled burn” was being done on the contents of six of the cars containing liquefied petroleum gas. Company spokesman Warren Chandler said the decision to conduct the burn was reached with Transport Canada, Alberta Environment and officials in Parkland County. “The parties agree that this is the safest and most effective way to allow the residents to return to their homes as quickly as possible,” Chandler said. Chandler wouldn’t say how the burn was being conducted, but noted that large flames and smoke would be visible. Earlier in the day, the company said CN crews worked Saturday night to move the four cars carrying crude oil a safe distance from the cars laden with liquefied petroleum gas. Despite the cluster of derailments, a CN spokesman said rail remains a safe way to transport materials. “CN’s safety record has been very solid, in terms of its main track derailments last year, they were the lowest on record,” said company spokesman Mark Hallman. “The vast majority of commodities, such as dangerous commodities, that are transported from origin to destination, more than 99 per cent reach destination without any accidental release.” Federal New Democrat MP Olivia Chow took issue with that assessment. She called on the federal government to take stronger action to improve rail safety. “The latest train derailment, fire and evacuation tell the Conservative government that vague promise without a clear work plan is not enough,” Chow said in an email.

She said inspections need to be increased and automatic braking systems need to be mandated. Municipalities also need to be given better information about what dangerous goods are being transported on trains. Federal Transport Minister Lisa Raitt’s office issued a statement saying the federal government has invested over $100 million in rail safety and brought in tougher fines for companies that violate safety regulations. Three of the rail cars on the train that derailed Saturday caught fire. They were carrying liquefied petroleum gas. Four freight cars carrying crude didn’t break open, Hallman said. CN said the train was travelling to Vancouver from Edmonton. The Gainford area remained under a state of emergency Saturday night. Travel on the Yellowhead Highway — the main east-west corridor in northern Alberta — was restricted. The Transportation Safety Board was sending investigators to the scene to determine the cause of the derailment. In a statement, CN said the track was tested last week as well as last month and no issues were found. It also said an inspection of the train when it left Edmonton on Friday found no problems. CN was clearly sensitive to the public relations fallout from the derailment. The company brought in some of its top brass to manage the situation, including Chief Operating Officer Jim Vena. He apologized to the residents of Gainford for the disruption and promised the company would get to the bottom of what happened to prevent it from happening again. “We run a safe railroad, but we do have incidents,” Vena said. The recent derailments come as documents obtained by Greenpeace suggest CN is considering shipping Alberta bitumen to Prince Rupert, B.C. in quantities matching the controversial North Gateway pipeline. A departmental briefing note obtained under access to information laws said CN was reportedly working with Chinese-owned oil giant Nexen to examine transporting crude by rail to be loaded onto tankers for export to Asia. CN denied it made a specific proposal for Prince Rupert, but said it will consider any such project as it comes up. The Northern Gateway project has faced intense scrutiny and criticism and it was unclear whether the project would get the necessary approval. There has also been intense scrutiny over shipping oil by rail following July’s horrific derailment of a Montreal, Maine and Atlantic train in LacMegantic, Que. The subsequent fire claimed 47 lives.

When skills, jobs at odds BY GWYN MORGAN SPECIAL TO THE ADVOCATE What is the return on a university education? Sadly, many students graduate to find that their $30,000 debt (cross-country average) has bought them employment prospects no better than what they had when they left high school. After four or more years on campus, they emerge on the wrong side of the skills without jobs/jobs without skills gap that the Canadian Chamber of Commerce estimates will see over half a million post-secondary graduates working in low skills jobs by 2016, while 1.5 million skilled jobs go unfilled. So what’s the problem? A study released recently by CIBC World Markets reached the unsurprising conclusion that too few students

are choosing to study in high demand areas. Deputy chief economist Benjamin Tal, co-author of the report stated: “Despite the overwhelming evidence that one’s field of study is the most important factor determining labour market outcomes, today’s students have not gravitated to more financially advantageous fields in a way that reflects the changing realty of the labour market. Across subjects, the biggest bang for the buck comes from fields such as medicine, law and engineering. A look at the dispersion of earnings across fields of study shows there is a much greater risk of falling into a lower income category for graduates of the humanities and social sciences. ... Most Canadians are aware that, on average, your odds to earn more are better with a degree in engineering than a degree in medieval history.” The CIBC study comes after commentators, including me, have pointed

out the folly of continuing to waste precious educational dollars to turn out huge numbers of surplus arts and social science students, while turning away applicants for in-demand fields. Compounding their appalling academic inertia, universities are dealing with revenue shortfalls by cutting back engineering, medicine and other skillsshort enrolment in equal proportion to skills-surplus programs, killing the aspirations of an even greater number of high achieving students, while further reducing the economic competitiveness of our nation. Even tiny steps towards reducing arts funding meet with vocal opposition. Last months’ decision by the University of Alberta to axe 20 arts programs, none of which had more than 10 students enrol at any point in the past eight years, came under heavy fire from ever vigilant defenders of arts funding.

Feeling the heat, academia’s vested interests have shifted into defence mode, as evidenced by a commentary headlined Universities educate, employers train by Max Blouw, chair of the Council of Ontario Universities and president of Wilfrid Laurier University, which ran on Sept. 3 in the Globe and Mail. It is simply incomprehensible to me to assert that the role of universities is to graduate students without such basic foundation knowledge and then to expect employers to provide it. It’s time for Blouw and his colleagues to put the interests of their students, and our country, ahead of defending their elitist perch in those hallowed ivory towers. Gwyn Morgan is a retired Canadian business leader who has been a director of five global corporations. This column was supplied by Troy Media (www.troymedia. com).

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Post-secondary funds defy logic I write this letter to clarify recent funding shifts in Alberta post-secondary education (PSE) and to raise a voice of dissent against the ministerial handling of education funds. The minister’s tactics and explanations in these matters are bullying and highly motivated toward industry interests. These changes do little to serve the overall project of education as a way to benefit society; rather, the changes serve industry needs and further narrow the economic, political and cultural scopes of the province. On March 7, 2013, minister Thomas Lukaszuk announced budget cuts to PSE. Revoking a promised two per cent increase and implementing a 7.2 per cent cut, Lukaszuk effectively diminished PSE funding by 9.2 per cent. Across the 26 provincial institutions, a total of $147 million was cut. Programs were closed. Courses were cut. Class sizes increased. Employees lost jobs. Employees who kept their jobs saw workload increases with no pay adjustment. When these cuts happened, I wrote to the minister to ask for a reconsideration of these actions. His response stated that the province was “strategically repositioning the system to be more efficient, effective, and sustainable so we can continue to deliver world-class education into the future.” He also claimed that PSE funding over the past 10 years, increasing 45 per cent, were unsustainable. These words sound impressive — particularly sustainability and the need to be parsimonious — yet the total outcome of the cuts, at that point in time, was an across-the-board slash to education facilities and delivery. I would see this “world-class” move in line with other international economic cuts like Greece, Portugal and Spain, not somewhere like Norway. After claiming that PSE cuts were due to fiscal restraint and sustainability, it was with great disbelief that I read, on Oct. 9, the news of a new grant for the University of Calgary of $142.5 million to upgrade the engineering school. Given Lukaszuk’s explanations, I wondered about the source of the finances. The explanation is that the U of C grant was for infrastructure whereas the cuts in March were from operating budgets. On the surface, this appears quite devious, but it is actually worse than it appears. Effectively, the minister has cut 26 institutions, across all faculties, all programs, all courses and redirected the money not simply to one institution, but to one faculty and one program. So much for diversification. Yet, to rationalize this as infrastructure budget rather than operating budget simply raises the question of the future operating budget of this new school. Who will staff and maintain the building? Who will teach courses and conduct research? If infrastructure and operating budgets are separate, would it not stand to reason that we must draw further from operating budgets to make the engineering building tick? This means a greater drain on operating budgets from the all other sectors of the PSE landscape recently damaged by the cuts. A more naked display of industry partisanship is difficult to imagine. The cynicism is acute. I can, perhaps, do little to change anything. I am simply connecting the dots here, but I think this situation deserves more coverage and context than it has received. Public education is a social good, not an industry tool. It worries me, as I believe it should worry most people, that our provincial government would so clearly narrow the educational and vocational opportunities for our current and future students. The fortuitous resource wealth of Alberta should open up opportunities and possibilities, not shut them down. Roger Davis Red Deer

ly modified to tolerate herbicides, known as “Roundup Ready” crops. Instead of tilling fields, farmers spray herbicides that kill all plants but the crop. This has wiped out much of the milkweed. With a decline of monarchs in Mexico and pervasive threats during migration, it wasn’t entirely surprising that they arrived in Canada six weeks later than normal this summer in unprecedented low numbers. Point Pelee National Park in Leamington, Ont., even cancelled its annual monarch count because of lack of butterflies. While the future of the monarch looks bleak, we can all help ensure its survival. At home you can create a butterfly garden to provide habitat and food for monarchs and other pollinators. Plant milkweed and nectar-producing native flowers, like wild bergamot, New England aster and black-eyed Susans — especially ones with yellow, pink, orange and purple flowers. Adding these plants to gardens, balconies, parks and green spaces — and encouraging local schools, businesses and institutions to do the same — will help bees and butterflies stay healthy and well-fed. So, while the monarchs have already begun their journey south, I encourage you to start preparing for next year’s butterflies. Head to your local nursery and get your milkweed on. And do what you can to bring nature to your neighbourhood. Scientist, author and broadcaster David Suzuki wrote this column with Jode Roberts. Learn more at www.davidsuzuki.org.

PM calls four byelections BATTLE FOR OPPOSITION SUPREMACY STARTS BY THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA — The battle for opposition supremacy is on after Prime Minister Stephen Harper set Nov. 25 as the date for four federal byelections. Harper called the byelections on Sunday for Toronto Centre, the Montreal riding of Bourassa and the Manitoba ridings of Provencher and BrandonSouris. Toronto-Centre and Bourassa are longtime Liberal strongholds, left vacant after the resignations of former interim leader Bob Rae and veteran MP Denis Coderre. However, New Democrats are making a concerted effort to snatch the two ridings away or, at least, make significant inroads. Both the Liberals and NDP are running star candidates in the two ridings. The Manitoba ridings are longtime Conservative fiefdoms, left vacant after the retirement of former minister Vic Toews and backbencher Merv Tweed, and are widely expected to remain so. But a raging controversy over the party’s alleged

interference in the choice of candidate in BrandonSouris has angered some Tories and given the opposition parties some hope of scoring an upset. The Toronto and Montreal byelections will likely be the most closely watched, with New Democrats intent on proving they’re the real alternative to the governing Tories, despite public opinion polls suggesting the NDP has sunk back into its traditional third-place slot since Justin Trudeau took the helm of a rejuvenated Liberal party in April. The Liberals are running Chrystia Freeland in Toronto Centre. She’ll be up against the NDP’s Linda McQuaig. Both are former journalists and authors who have written extensively on growing income inequality, a key issue since all three main federal parties are vying to be seen as the champion of the middle class. McQuaig was out of the gate immediately Sunday, challenging Freeland, via a You Tube video, to a debate “any time, anywhere.” “We’re going to do everything possible to get her elected,” NDP Leader Tom Mulcair said in an interview, calling McQuaig “extraordinary,” “amazing” and “a star.” Bourassa is one of the few Quebec ridings that didn’t fall to the NDP when the so-called orange wave swept the province in 2011 and Mulcair said the

NDP is “going to throw everything we can at it, starting with an absolutely exceptional candidate, named Stephane Moraille.” Moraille, an immigrant from Haiti, is a lawyer and erstwhile singer with Juno-award winning Bran Van 3000. She’s going up against Liberal star recruit Emmanuel Dubourg, a former member of the Quebec legislature who is also of Haitian descent. The Green party’s chosen contender, former NHL star and deputy party leader Georges Laraque, could have complicated the Liberal-NDP showdown in Bourassa. But he stepped down last week after he was charged with five counts of fraud related to a dispute with a former business partner. He said he wants to focus on clearing his name. Trudeau has already been campaigning in both Manitoba ridings, although the chances of knocking off the Conservatives seem slim. “Liberals are taking every byelection seriously,” Trudeau said in a statement Sunday. “ I have travelled across this country and I have heard Canadians’ calls for something new, something better.” Toews won Provencher in 2011 with a whopping 70 per cent of the vote, while Tweed took BrandonSouris with a similarly impressive 64 per cent. But Mulcair predicted both Manitoba byelections will be “three-way races” this time.

SENATORIAL SUSPENSIONS

Tory move sparks fierce debate BY THE CANADIAN PRESS

of the Senate. But he said he can’t be sure, because such issues haven’t been tested in court in recent years. “By and large these provisions are used very rarely, and any government is cautious in using them because they set a precedent and you don’t want it to be easy for a majority in either House to remove a member they don’t like, just because they don’t like them,” said Franks, a professor emeritus at Queen’s University. Liberal Senator George Baker told reporters last week he was concerned by creating such a precedent with the case before them. “The Senate is above all rules in that they can set their own parameters for rules...what I’m saying is it’s unfair to do that, it’s very unfair and it’s only right that some senators would express the other opinion however unpopular it is to try and persuade the majority to go the other way,” Baker said. The former law clerk of the House of Commons, Rob Walsh, took to Twitter to outline why he feels the Senate could suspend the trio, but not without pay. He said the pay is guaranteed by statute, the Parliament of Canada Act, “to ensure protection from political intimidation/control.” “Cons. motion politically driven to win public favour for Cons Govt when Senate may be partly responsible for wrongdoing,” he tweeted.

He just seemed to good to be true, said Lutz, relaxing at home with her new husband and his son, Galaxia, on the morning after a dream wedding that they could never have pulled off on their own. Her skepticism proved unfounded and, earlier this year, the future couple, Maluk and Karen Ayom, became engaged after a five-year romance. They had not even started their wedding plans when they learned about and entered a contest from a Toronto-based organization, the Wedding Saviours, that arranges and covers the costs for deserving couples. In a statement released early last week, Wedding Saviours founder Brenda Holdsworth announced that Lutz and Ayom had won the contest and would be wed at the Chalet in Westerner Park on Saturday, courtesy of a long list of donors and organized by local wedding planner, Jennifer Lightle. Holdsworth said Lutz and Ayom were selected because they have both experienced and overcome series of hardships. Raised on a farm near Innisfail, Lutz was diagnosed with a cranial clot that threatened her life. Her father, Reynie, died a

Mercedes Cruz, HIPPY program co-ordinator for Central Alberta Immigrant Women, goes through an overview of modules that are part of the program.

HIPPY program helps new Canadians to become kids’ first teachers BY BRENDA KOSSOWAN ADVOCATE STAFF Teaching new Canadians to be their toddlers’ first teachers gives benefits far beyond the schoolwork they cover, says the petit former accountant who now runs a HIPPY Canada program in Red Deer. Recruited by the Central Alberta Immigrant Women’s Association, Mercedes Cruz took charge in summer of its Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters program as a means of helping both the children and their caregivers. CAIWA calls them caregivers, because it isn’t always the moms who are taking part, but can be other members of an immigrant family who are raising the children and could use some help being introduced into their new communities, says Cruz. CAIWA has run a HIPPY Canada program for about five years, with the Citizenship and Immigration Canada funding 55 families a year in Red Deer and the surrounding region, says Cruz. Geared at helping caregivers prepare their children for

school, the HIPPY program she co-ordinates is set up specifically for newcomers who are awaiting Canadian citizenship. To be eligible, the caregivers must be on permanent resident status with children aged from three to five years old. The program is run from October through June, divided into a number of modules in which home visitors work with the caregivers to provide instruction to the children. Because of the way it is set up, the program goes well beyond showing caregivers how to be their children’s first teachers, says Cruz. Born and raised in the Philippines, she is familiar with the isolation and hardship young women face when they leave their families behind to take jobs in Canada. Cruz had to leave a fouryear-old daughter — now a young adult — to take her first job here. She recalls the incredible loneliness she felt in those days, sitting in a shopping mall, searching faces and not seeing anyone familiar. Such isolation is extremely difficult for someone who is

accustomed to having a large extended family at home along with a wide circle of friends, says Cruz, whose children have since joined her in Canada. While she is still familiarizing herself with the ins and outs of HIPPY, Cruz says she has found it an invaluable way of helping newcomers make friends and break out of the isolation they feel when they move into a new community, far from home. Already this year, she has a waiting list of people who would like to take part in the program as soon as their children reach the minimum age of three years old. And she is hopeful that CIC funding will increase so more families both within Red Deer and from the surrounding area can be brought into the program. Today, she and fellow HIPPY Canada workers are meeting in Calgary to learn more about their program and to help in its ongoing development.

A Red Deer man who was investigated for dangerous driving has been sentenced to five years in prison on weapons, drugs and driving offences. Saleem Mike El-Majzoub, 28, was arrested in Sylvan Lake in the fall of 2012 by RCMP seeking a suspect from a dangerous driving incident in Red Deer on Sept. 13 of that year. El-Majzoub originally pleaded not guilty and asked to be tried in the Red Deer Court of Queen’s Bench on 14 offences. They include two counts of possessing a weapon dangerous to the public, three counts of possessing a prohibited weapon, two counts of unauthorized possession of a firearm, two counts of dangerous driving, two counts of possessing drugs for trafficking, one count of possessing the proceeds of crime and two traffic tickets — one for failing to stop for police and one for failing to hold a valid driver’s licence. Scheduled for a preliminary hearing on July 30, El-Majzoub changed his plea to guilty on Aug. 2 on a lesser number of charges, including possessing a weapon dangerous to the public, possessing a prohibited firearm, possessing drugs for trafficking and evading police. He was given a global sentence of five years, including four years on the drug charge. El-Majzoub was given 332 days credit for the time he spent in custody awaiting trial.

A8 Slow times for oilpatch deals

MONDAY, OCT. 21, 2013

AMID MARKET UNCERTAINTY, FOREIGN INVESTMENT RULES BY THE CANADIAN PRESS CALGARY — It’s a tough time to be looking for a deal in the oilpatch, due to a combination of market uncertainty and confusion over federal foreign investment rules introduced during the past year. With Canada’s major energy companies set to report their third-quarter results over the next few weeks, observers say investors will be eagerly awaiting an update on how the firms are slimming their portfolios by selling non-core assets. The likes of Talisman Energy Inc. (TSX:TLM) and Canadian Natural Resources Ltd. (TSX:CNQ) have had Western Canadian natural gas assets on the market for some time, and Encana Corp. (TSX:ECA) signalled recently that it, too, intends to pare down its gas holdings. “Why we’ve not seen those assets being picked up is potentially a function of the sustained low gas prices. I think that there is uncertainty in the business community,” said Lance Mortlock, a partner in Ernst & Young’s oil and gas practice in Calgary. There’s also uncertainty over how quickly multi-

billion-dollar liquefied natural gas export facilities can be built on Canada’s West Coast, enabling sales in lucrative Asian markets. Brian Pow, director of research at Acumen Capital Markets, describes the current mergers-andacquisition environment in the oilpatch as a story of “haves and have nots.” “There’s a lot of broken companies and, generally, the game’s changed such — LANCE MORTLOCK, A that the going prices to do drilling have gone up a heck of a lot,” he said, noting that firms with the best management teams and production profiles are having an easier time. Ernst & Young recently penned a report advising companies that it’s no longer enough to rely on commodity price cycles or short-term, piecemeal cost-cutting measures to manage in these uncertain times. Instead, the study recommends companies use

performance improvement programs that boost efficiency across the board. It’s an approach the manufacturing sector has used for some time, and one that’s only beginning to catch on in Canada’s oilpatch, Mortlock said. “Staying competitive requires making more structural changes to your business that are more sustainable,” he said. Pow suspects the PARTNER IN ERNST & YOUNG struggle to build new export pipelines out of Alberta and new federal rules on investments from foreign state-owned enterprises might be causing some hesitation as well. Many oilpatch firms rely on foreign dollars to develop resources that would otherwise stay untapped for a long time.

MARKET OUTLOOK

TSX watched to build on gains BY THE CANADIAN PRESS

Bank of Canada Governor Stephen Poloz speaks to the Vancouver Board of Trade in Vancouver on September 18, 2013. The Bank of Canada’s elite economists are getting some bad grades — for their writing skills. An internal review of the work of the central bank economists who advise the governor finds them ungrammatical and wordy.

Audit finds Bank of Canada’s economists write poorly MANAGERS MUST EDIT THE BELOW-STANDARD ENGLISH OR FRENCH BY THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA — An internal report card says the Bank of Canada’s economists don’t write too good. “Economists’ writing skills were identified by many as an area for improvement,” says an audit ordered by the central bank. “This includes difficulties being succinct, grammatically correct, and prioritizing the data into useful information.” Auditors examined an elite group of bank economists, most of them with graduate degrees, who regularly dissect the current state of the Canadian and international economies. The group’s advice is in high demand by Stephen Poloz, the governor, and his five deputies,

who together must set Canada’s monetary policy in a volatile financial climate. The workload of the group has grown tremendously since the global meltdown of 2008, the audit notes. “The number of requests for analysis coming from the Governing Council members has increased as they seek to understand the impact of a growing number of factors impacting the economy, respond to questions concerning short-term forecasting, and prepare for public appearances,” says the internal report. Ad-hoc demands by the governor and others for quick analysis, which now absorb up to half the time of these economists, also appear to have created a paper jam as managers must then ed-

it the below-standard English or French. “The cause for lengthy review was in part attributed to writing skills, both in terms of basic communication, as well as how to convey an appropriate level of detail in telling ‘the story,”’ says the audit. The group clearly needs training in writing skills, the report concludes, and the bank’s management agreed to provide it. The Canadian Press recently obtained a largely uncensored copy of the audit under the Access to Information Act. Last year, the central bank provided only a redacted copy, in which all references to the economists’ weak writing were deleted.

TORONTO — Traders will be anxious to see this week if the Toronto stock market can carry on the steady gains racked up during October that took the TSX to its highest levels in more than two years. Investors will also look to the Bank of Canada’s latest interest rate announcement and what is expected to be a steady flow of economic reports that were postponed because of the lengthy partial U.S. government shutdown. The stars seem to be finally aligning for the Toronto Stock Exchange, which closed above 13,000 last week for the first time since late July 2011, a sign that the resource-heavy market is perhaps bouncing back after suffering through falling commodity prices, the European Union debt crisis and a slowing in the Chinese economy. “Canada is always a late cycle market because of the resource domination,” observed Wes Mills, chief investment officer at Scotia Asset Management PM Advisor Services. “So, as the global economy continues to improve, Canada will start showing up more on people’s radar.” A variety of indicators bode well for the TSX, including a sharp decline in the price differential between West Texas Intermediate crude and Brent crude, along with data last week that showed the Chinese economy rebounded in the latest quarter to 7.8 per cent from a two-decade low of 7.5 per cent in the second quarter. Also, the European Union is also offering signs of clawing its way out of a deep malaise. Mills said that global growth is improving, with the signs expecting to continue into 2014. But it’s not just resource stocks that have propelled the Toronto exchange to a point where it is up 5.65 per cent year-to-date. The other major pillar, financials, is up 15 per cent year-to-date and more than three per cent for October alone. “The financials were held back a good part of the year... on views that the housing market was too expensive, going to roll over and there was excessive credit risk in the banks,” said Mills. “(But) the housing market has done quite well. So financials have picked up and of course insurance was always picking up as the market was doing better and interest rates were backing up a little bit.” Gold miners continue to be the biggest weight on the TSX with the exchange’s Global Gold sector down 44 per cent year-to-date and down 12.6 per cent this month alone. Bullion prices are down 20 per cent from the start of the year.

said Cynthia Caskey, vice-president and portfolio manager with TD Wealth Private Investment Advice. “Tax free savings accounts are a good choice for young people because of the flexibility they offer and there’s a wide range of options for how to use the money — from storing it in a highinterest savings account to investing it in more volatile instruments, such as mutual funds, equities or listed securities.” Both studies found that millennials want to remain in control of their investments. More than 70 per cent in the Merrill Lynch survey described themselves as being “self-directed” in their investing, perhaps because they have a hard time believing that advisers have their best interests in mind.

In the TD survey, 18 per cent said they learned about saving and investments on their own and 48 per cent said they manage their portfolios directly online. Millennials employ a variety of investment strategies. Forty per cent take a long-term, buy-and-hold approach, 34 per cent have a mix of index and actively managed funds, 31 per cent regularly buy and sell to maximize gains, 27 per cent are primarily invested in actively managed funds to beat the market, and 15 per cent are primarily invested in index funds and ETFs to match the market. “Today’s young investors are savvy when it comes to building and managing their portfolios,” said Alfred Chung, director of TD Direct Investing. “With mobile technology, those who embrace the selfmanaged investing approach can retrieve real-time stock quotes, access markets and research, and place real-time trades from their smartphone.” The Merrill Lynch study also found that millennial investors tend to be skeptical and don’t take the advice or recommendations of financial professionals at face value. “It is not enough for millennials to accept recommendations based on vague references to experience or past performance: they want to be shown the math,” the report says. “Millennials simply seem to question whether paying for financial advice is worth it.” Talbot Boggs is a Toronto-based business communications professional who has worked with national news organizations, magazines and corporations in the finance, retail, manufacturing and other industrial sectors.

ENERGY: Rules causing foreign investment slide Typically a deep-pocketed foreign player, often state-owned, will kick in a portion of the funding needed to develop a resource in exchange for a slice of production. The Canadian company gets a muchneeded cash infusion, while the foreign company can secure a stable supply of energy for its home country. But, as former Conservative cabinet minister Jim Prentice noted earlier this month, foreign investment has dropped off recently — and he says it’s the new rules that are, in part, chasing it away. Speaking at a London conference, Prentice, now a senior CIBC executive, said foreign investment in Canada had dropped precipitously this year — $2 billion so far in 2013, down 92 per cent from $27 billion during the same period last year. The rules came about late last year following intense public debate over whether Calgary companies Nexen Inc. and Progress Energy ought to be taken over by Chinese and Malaysian interests, respectively. Though the Harper government ultimately waved those deals through, it put limits on the amount of control state-owned enterprises can have in the Canadian energy sector in the future. Yuen Pau Woo, president and CEO of the Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada, has said the definition of what constitutes a “state-owned’ player is of concern to the Chinese. “Technically speaking, every company is under the influence of the government, so potentially every single Chinese investment above $300 million could be subject to the new SOE guidelines and that can’t be good for investment in Canada,” he told a business forum last month. George Addy, a partner at law firm Davies Ward Phillips & Vineberg, agrees the nebulous definition of what constitutes “state-control” is having an impact. For instance, it’s unclear whether the rules would encompass funds that manage the pensions of government employees. By that measure an organization such as the Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan could fall into that category, if the tables were turned. “I think we used to have a competitive advantage over other countries as to the predictability of our foreign investment review process and I think we’ve lost some of that edge,” said Addy. “So the foreign investment community in Canada is now competing with more countries to attract foreign direct investment. They’re basically competing with alternative investments in other countries.”

AUDIT: Economics dense in jargon But after a complaint to the information commissioner of Canada and a subsequent year-long investigation, the Bank of Canada relented and delivered a mostly intact copy of the March 2012 document. The audit otherwise praises the work of the socalled “Current Analysis” section of the central bank. Spokeswoman Jill Vardy declined to respond immediately to questions, saying the Bank of Canada was currently in a communications “blackout” ahead of Wednesday’s key policy announcement, when the bank announces the overnight rate that influences general interest rates. The “blackout” policy in the days leading to the announcement forbids senior bank officials from “speaking to the news media or other outside parties about the economic outlook and the direction of monetary policy, or about anything else that could be considered relevant to economic outlook and their interest rate decision.” Vardy said the economists who were reviewed by the auditors take part in the process by which the bank determines its monetary policy. “Given that your questions pertain to the economic staff and departments that are involved in formulating the economic outlook, we consider the (blackout) guidelines to apply,” she said in an email. Economics, by its very nature, is a discipline dense in jargon. The last monetary policy report, issued by the central bank in July, for example, offered sentences such as: “Financial fragmentation continues to impair the transmission of monetary policy, however, as reflected in the divergence between lending rates in the peripheral and core economies.” Federal government policy requires bureaucrats to speak plainly to the public.

ENGINEERING BEGINS IN CENTRAL VALLEY BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS FRESNO, Calif. — Trucks loaded with tomatoes, milk and almonds clog the two main highways that bisect California’s farm heartland, carrying goods to millions along the Pacific Coast and beyond. This dusty stretch of land is the starting point for one of the most expensive U.S. public infrastructure projects: a $68 billion high-speed rail system that would span the state, linking the people of America’s salad bowl to more jobs, opportunity and buyers. Five years ago, California voters overwhelmingly approved the idea of bringing a bullet train to the most populous U.S. state. It would be America’s first high-speed rail system, sold to the public as a way to improve access to good-paying jobs, cut pollution from smog-filled roadways and reduce time wasted sitting in traffic while providing an alternative to high fuel prices. Now, engineering work has finally begun on the first 30-mile (48-kilometre) segment of track here in Fresno, a city of a halfmillion people with soaring unemployment and a withering downtown core littered with abandoned factories and shuttered stores. Rail is meant to help Fresno, with construction jobs now and improved access to economic opportunity once the project is finished. But the region that could benefit most from the project is also where opposition to it has grown most fierce. “I just wish it would go away, this high-speed rail. I just wish it would go away,” says Gary Lanfranco, whose restaurant in downtown Fresno is slated to be demolished to make way for rerouted traffic. Such sentiments can be heard throughout the Central Valley, where roads are dotted with signs such as: “HERE COMES HIGH SPEED RAIL There goes the farm.” Growers complain of misplaced priorities, and residents wonder if their tax money is being squandered. Aaron Fukuda, a civil engineer whose house in the dairy town of Hanford lies directly in one of the possible train routes, says: “Peo-

ple are worn out, tired, frustrated.” Voters in 2008 approved $10 billion in bonds to start construction on an 800-mile (1,300-kilometre) rail line to ferry passengers between San Francisco and Los Angeles in 2 hours and 40 minutes, compared with 6 hours by car now during good traffic.

rabilia and yellowing newspaper restaurant reviews line the fauxwood walls in the space that Lanfranco has owned for most of his life. Lanfranco says the sum he was offered to buy the property does not come close to replacing the space he owns, debt-free. The adjacent parking lot — a rare commodity — is packed with pickup trucks and cars each day at lunchtime. Lanfranco declined to say how much he was offered, and the offers are not public record. “It’s not like it’s just a restaurant that I’ve owned for a couple of years and now I can just go replace it. It’s something that I’ve put the last 45 years of my life into,” the 66-year-old says. His is just one of hundreds of properties the state needs to buy for the rail project or seize through eminent domain if they cannot reach a deal. Many owners are resentful after years of what they say have been confusing messages and misleading information. Rail officials acknowledge that the agency hasn’t always communicated with those most affected by the project, and part of their work in the Central Valley is strictly public relations. “Frankly, it set us back, because we, in effect, created questions and even opposition by just failing to give people answers,” says Jeff Morales, the authority’s chief executive officer since 2012. For supporters, high-speed rail is the solution to California’s future transportation needs, when the state’s already jammed, rutted highways and busy airports won’t be enough for a population expected to hit 46 million by 2035. It will create hundreds of goodpaying jobs for several years as officials tear down buildings, draw engineering plans, survey wildlife and, eventually, lay track. It will also help move the Central Valley beyond the dominant low-wage agriculture sector, Morales says. “By connecting Fresno, Bakersfield and the other cities of the Central Valley to Los Angeles and San Francisco ... it just creates more opportunities for people,” he says. “It creates a whole different sort of economy that’ll just raise the Central Valley.”

RAIL IS MEANT TO HELP FRESNO, WITH CONSTRUCTION JOBS AND IMPROVED ACCESS TO ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY Since then, the housing market collapsed, multibillion-dollar budget deficits followed, and the price tag has fluctuated wildly — from $45 billion in 2008 to more than $100 billion in 2011 and, now, $68 billion. Political and financial compromises led officials to scale back plans that now mean trains will be forced to slow down and share tracks in major cities, leading critics to question whether it will truly be the 220-mph (355-kph) “highspeed rail” voters were promised. The high-speed rail business plan says trains will run between the greater Los Angeles area and the San Francisco Bay Area by 2029. But construction has been postponed repeatedly, and a court victory this summer by opponents threatens further delays; a Sacramento County Superior Court judge said the state rail authority’s plan goes against the promise made to voters to identify all the funding for the first segment before starting construction. Even the former chairman of the California High-Speed Rail Authority, Quentin Kopp, has turned against the current project, saying in court papers that it “is no longer a genuine high speed rail system.” In the Central Valley, there is intense distrust of the authority, which has started buying up property, land and businesses, some of which have been in families for generations. At the dimly lit Cosmopolitan Cafe, office workers line up alongside farmers and paramedics to order sandwiches as waitresses expeditiously call out order numbers. Four decades’ worth of memo-

Environmentalists, unions seek common ground to fight global warming, protect jobs THE ASSOCIATED PRESS PITTSBURGH — The nation’s largest labour unions are ready and willing to help fight global warming, but are cautioning environmentalists that workers need new clean-energy jobs before existing industries are shut down. The four-day Power Shift conference in Pittsburgh is training young people to stop coal mining, fracking for oil and gas, and nuclear power, but organizers also want workers to join the battle against climate change. Union leaders say their workers want to help build a new, green economy. “Global warming is here, and we can work and get it fixed together,” United Steel Workers president Leo Gerard said in a Friday night address at Power Shift. But other labour groups note that while they share the same longterm clean energy goals with environmentalists, there are challenges. “It’s not just as simple as ‘No Fracking”’ or other bans, said Tahir Duckett, an AFL/CIO representative who spoke at a Saturday Power Shift panel that sought to promote dialogue between environmentalists and workers. Duckett said workers need new jobs to make a transition to clean energy, noting that shutting

down industries such as coal “can turn entire communities into a ghost town. “We cannot bury our heads in the sand and pretend like people aren’t fighting for their very survival.” Richard Fowler, a Power Shift moderator, said that instead of talking about a “ban” on a particular industry, environmentalists should talk about solutions that provide jobs. “That’s what is missing,” said Fowler, a radio host and member of Generational Alliance, a Washington, D.C. based coalition of community youth groups.

Rough start to health-care program COMPUTER PROBLEMS PLAGUING ONLINE SIGN-UPS FOR NEW U.S. HEALTH INSURANCE BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

It took him about a week and a half, but Weaver kept going back to the healthcare. gov website until he opened an account and applied for a tax credit that will reduce his health care premiums. “We need to stop the arguing and move forward to make it work,” he says. In his mid-50s, with high blood pressure, high cholesterol, but otherwise good health, Weaver said those conditions made it hard for him to get coverage previously.

Hurricane Raymond heads towards storm-damaged stretch of Mexico BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS MEXICO CITY — Newly formed Hurricane Raymond swirled on Sunday toward Mexico’s southern Pacific coast, an area already devastated by rains and mudslides from Tropical Storm Manuel last month. The U.S. National Hurricane Center predicted Raymond would take a sharp westward turn and head out to sea before reaching land, but warned that the Category 1 storm still might get as close as 50 miles (80 kilometres), bringing the threat of heavy and possibly dangerous rains. In a region where 10,000 people are still living away from their homes one month after Manuel caused widespread flooding and left landslide risks, officials hurried to get emergency teams in place and weighed possible further evacuations. Mexican authorities pinned their hopes on a cold front moving from the north that could help force Raymond to turn away from the coast, said the head of Mexico’s National Water Commission, David Korenfeld. “The cold front coming down is what makes it (Raymond) turn to the left, but that is a model,” Korenfeld said. “If that cold front comes down more slowly, this tropical storm ... can get closer to the coast.” Raymond’s centre was about 135 miles (215 kilometres) south of the beach resort of Zihuatanejo and had maximum sustained winds of 75 mph (120 kph) early Sunday evening. The storm was moving north-northwest at about 6 mph (9 kph), the U.S. hurricane centre said. It said some additional strengthening was expected overnight and the storm’s forward motion was forecast to slow. Authorities in southern Guerrero state, where storm deluges caused about 120 deaths from flooding and landslides in September, were more worried about Raymond’s potential to bring more heavy rains than its winds.

The state government closed seaports, set up 700 emergency shelters and urged residents in risk areas to take precautions. Officials were expected to decide late Sunday on whether to order more evacuations, including from low-lying areas of Acapulco that flooded during Manuel. Forecasters said Raymond was expected to slowly approach the coast late Monday or Tuesday but then begin to meander. The centre said Raymond was likely to become a hurricane “very soon.” Forecasts warned that heavy rainfall was possible along the southcentral Mexican coast in coming days and could cause life-threatening flash floods and mudslides. A tropical storm warning and hurricane watch was in effect from Acapulco west to the seaport of Lazaro Cardenas. “There will be rain for the next 72 hours along the Pacific coast, very heavy rain, torrential rain,” Korenfeld said. The potential for damage from such rains is high. About 50 dams in the area were still over capacity, and officials were releasing water to make room for expected rainfall. Dozens of hillsides along the coast are thought to be unstable and could collapse from additional rain. In advance of the storm, the government moved helicopters and work crews to the places that problems were most likely. Some villages high in the mountains of Guerrero were still without electricity and phone service following Manuel. About 5,000 people in Guerrero are still living in shelters after their homes were flooded, and another 5,000 who were evacuated from homes built on hillsides at risk of mudslides are staying with relatives on safer ground. In Zihuatanejo, near the Ixtapa resort, authorities sent emergency personnel into low-lying areas to warn people to seek safer ground, said Miguel Quiroz, a local Red Cross dispatcher.

The protesters however ignored the advice, marching out of the main gates to hold “prayers for the dead” — honouring students killed in earlier clashes between security forces and protesters in July. The protests come amid heated debate over a new law that would place tougher restrictions on demonstrators, which includes imposing heavy fines and possible jail time on violators.

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama is expected today to address the problem-plagued rollout of his signature health-care legislation, which has suffered an embarrassing start with a cascade of computer problems plaguing online sign-ups for health insurance. The rough rollout has been a black eye for Obama, who invested significant time and political capital in his first term getting the law passed, with the goal of insuring millions of Americans without coverage. Administration officials say more than 476,000 health insurance applications have been filed through federal and state exchanges. The figures mark the most detailed measure yet of the problem-plagued rollout of the insurance marketplace. However, the officials continue to refuse to say how many people have actually enrolled. And without enrolment figures, it’s unclear whether the program is on track to reach the 7 million people projected to gain coverage during the six-month sign-up period. Obama will directly address the technical problems with the health care websites Monday morning during an event in the White House Rose Garden, according to the White House. Officials said the president finds the glitches unacceptable and will outline for the public steps the administration is taking to address the troubles. Obama will be joined during the event by people who have already enrolled in insurance programs through the new exchanges. The administration has not said how many people have enrolled during the first three weeks of sign-ups. The Health and Human Services Department reported Sunday that it “is bringing in some of the best and

brightest from both inside and outside government to ... help improve HealthCare.gov. We’re also putting in place tools and processes to aggressively monitor and identify parts of HealthCare.gov where individuals are encountering errors or having difficulty using the site, so we can prioritize and fix them.” Administration officials initially blamed a high volume of interest from ordinary Americans for the frozen screens that many people encountered. Since then, they have also acknowledged problems with software and some elements of the system’s design. The officials said technology experts from inside and outside the government are being brought in to work on the glitches, though they did not say how many workers were being added. Officials did say staffing has been increased at call centres by about 50 per cent. As problems persist on the federally run website, the administration is encouraging more people to sign up for insurance over the phone. The officials would not discuss the health insurance rollout by name and were granted anonymity. Despite the widespread problems, the White House has yet to fully explain what went wrong with the online system consumers were supposed to use to sign up for coverage. Interest in the insurance markets appears to continue to be high. Officials said about 19 million people have visited HealthCare.gov as of Friday night. Americans seeking health coverage through the legislation must fill out applications before selecting a specific plan. The forms require personal information, including income figures that are used to calculate any subsidies the applicant may qualify for. More than one person can be included on an application.

Escape Plan locked in implausibility STALLONE/SCHWARZENEGGER ACTION FILM OVERLY COMPLEX BY BRUCE DEMARA SPECIAL TO THE ADVOCATE

At the

Escape Plan 1.5 stars (out of four) Rated: 14A Hoping the latest prison drama provides some cinematic escapism? Don’t plan on it. Escape Plan is the newest vehicle for aging action stars Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger and, in this case, it’s a lemon or possibly an Edsel. It’s never a positive sign when a film’s distributor delays the screening of a film until well past the deadline for reviews that would appear on the day it opens, as has happened here. It’s a cynical strategy, one intended to bypass the critics and go straight to the people, and it’ll probably work. Escape Plan is one of those films that can safely be regarded as critic-proof. If you’ve seen the trailer, you know all you need to about the plot. Stallone plays Ray Breslin, an expert of breaking out of federal maximum security prisons, who is hoodwinked into testing a new privately run facility for people who “should not be allowed out in the real world.” In the allegedly escape-proof prison, known as The Tomb, he meets Rottmayer (that’s Ah-nold with a beard) and together they plot their eventual liberation. In one particularly eye-rolling scene, Breslin constructs a sextant from various odds and ends to determine their global position. Perhaps to deflect criticism that the story is aimed at the Neanderthal crowd, the story is cluttered with subplots, including the search for a terrorist named Mannheim, which means putting the squeeze on Rottmayer, and

an alliance with a Muslim guy, which goes to show you they’re not all bad. The story also flips back and forth between the prison and the feeble efforts by Breslin’s colleagues to find him after his tracking device is forcibly removed. It helps pad the film to almost two hours but the problem is it feels like padding, which leaves Hush (Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson) and Abigail (Amy Ryan) with little to do but look troubled. The third member of the team is Lester Clark (Vincent D’Onofrio) and it only takes his obsessive use of hand sanitizer for one to suss out that he’s the one who’s betrayed Breslin. There are no surprises with Stallone and Schwarzenegger, both of whom trade plenty of buddy-buddy trash talk with typically poor elocution, punctuated by f-bombs (the only word that either seems to pronounce with clarity and conviction). Jim Caviezel plays Warden Hobbes with a sociopathic silkiness that feels disturbingly authentic and poor Sam Neill plays the prison doctor with a hushed, almost aching sheepishness. Equally unsurprising is that the prison’s foolproof security system has more holes than the plot and that Breslin and Rottmayer will successfully make good their getaway thanks to one implausible circumstance after another, including prison guards who

B1 Rebels shot down by Hitmen

MONDAY, OCT. 21, 2013

SUTTER SAYS TEAM HAS LOTS OF WORK TO DO AFTER PAIR OF LOPSIDED WEEKEND LOSSES BY GREG MEACHEM ADVOCATE SPORTS EDITOR Hitmen 5 Rebels 2 The effort was better but the end result was the same. One night after turning in a putrid performance in a 4-0 WHL loss to the visiting Edmonton Oil Kings, the Red Deer Rebels had a little more jump in their stride Saturday at the Centrium. However, they fell well short once again, losing 5-2 to the Calgary Hitmen before 5,239 fans. “I liked the things we did in the first and third periods, but in the second we took eight minor penalties and a lot of guys ended up sitting and got out of the flow of the game,” said Rebels GM/head coach Brent Sutter. “We got behind the eight-ball and allowed a good team to get momentum. We tried to get back into it in the third but at times tonight it was like we were hitting a wall. “We have to learn to be a 60-minute team. I thought our work ethic and compete level was certainly better tonight throughout our lineup, but obviously it hasn’t been a good last couple of weeks and we have lots of work to do.” Despite being outshot 208 in the opening period, the Rebels took a 2-1 lead into the first intermission on goals from Conner Bleackley — his team-leading seventh of the season — and Dominik Volek and stellar work from netminder Patrik Bartosak. Bleackley stripped the puck from defenceman Josh Thrower and undressed netminder Chris Driedger at 9:46, and Volek buried a rebound of a Bleackley shot to break a 1-1 tie at 18:38. But that was it for the Reb-

els, who were outshot 16-4 in the middle stanza before bouncing back to outshoot their guests 15-10 in the third period, albeit failing to score. Hitmen captain Jaynen Risling moved in from the blueline and pulled the visitors even with a power-play tally a mere 1:29 into the second period, and Colby Harmsworth and Elliott Peterson connected to give Calgary a 4-2 lead after 40 minutes. Peterson rounded out the scoring with an empty-net, short-handed goal at 17:58 of the final frame. Jake Virtanen had Calgary’s first-period marker. Sutter again touched on the lack of guidance shown by his veteran players. “We have to get everyone to understand that there’s a certain way we have to play and it has to come from our older group. They have to carry the torch with this and show the leadership,” he said. “Obviously it was a disappointing weekend. We played two rival teams and didn’t get anything out of it. At the end of the day we just weren’t good enough.” The Rebels were without No. 1 defenceman Haydn Fleury on Saturday. With Fleury, who was hurt Friday and was sporting a pair of crutches 24 hours later, and Kolton Dixon (concussion, indefinite) out of the lineup, the Red Deer blueline featured three rookies. While he admitted to being concerned about the manner in which his team was owned on back-to-back nights, Sutter said the shortage of experience on the back end hurt. “I’m not making excuses, but I want to see a full lineup. It’s been a battle here with injuries,” he said. “We’ve had to use guys who

The Rebels lost 5-2. haven’t played in the league before against some top teams and that’s not an easy thing for them. “Yet you have to learn from it and get better from it. At the same time, there has to be more responsibility from certain players in the dressing room to get better.” The Hitmen improved to 7-3-0-1 with the victory and looked every bit the part of a contender. “I think we have the capabilities to be a contender in the east again, for sure,” said Risling. “It’s still early and guys

are still getting used to playing with other people. The coaches are trying different line combinations and kind of getting used to everything that way. “We’ve done a pretty good job of that so far and hopefully we’ll continue that as the season goes on.” The Rebels, who host the Saskatoon Blades Friday and the Kootenay Ice Oct. 30 before heading out on a sixgame, nine-day road trip that concludes Nov. 9 at Lethbridge, slipped to 6-7-0-0 and into ninth place in the Eastern Conference.

“We fall a game below .500 and we have to have a good week (of practice) here and get ready for next Friday,” said Sutter. “We have two more games at home before we go on a road trip. Everyone in the conference is hunched together and we have to stay in the pack and find ways to get points. “This weekend is something we have to be concerned about. We have to recognize and face facts and work to get better.” gmeachem@reddeeradvocate. com

Flames fall prey to Pavelski, Sharks BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Sharks 6 Flames 3 SAN JOSE, Calif. — Joe Pavelski jumped into the team points lead after scoring twice and assisting on two other goals. Not that he was paying much attention. Pavelski scored two power-play goals, helping the San Jose Sharks remain unbeaten at home with a 6-3 victory over the Calgary Flames on Saturday night. “There are three, four, five guys like that here,” Pavelski said. “It’s so early in the season for that.” Brent Burns, Scott Hannan, Patrick Marleau and Logan Couture also scored for the Sharks, who have won their first five at home. “We have a great comfort level here,” Sharks’ captain Joe Thornton said. “We come out strong, heavy and jump on teams. We’re aggressive from the drop of the puck.” Sean Monahan, Mikael Backlund and Jiri Hudler scored for the Flames, who lost their second straight after opening the season 4-0-1. “This is by far the best team we have played,” Calgary coach Bob Hartley said. “At the same time it was the worst game we’ve played. We made some bad decisions that cost us some goals. We made bad decisions and went to the box for unnecessary reasons and there was a little bad luck.” Antti Niemi stopped 16 of 19 shots to record his 11th career win over the Flames, his most against any team. It was also his 100th as a Shark. Karri Ramo, making his first start since the season opener, made 30 saves. “Five goals, you can’t be happy about that,” Ramo said. “I felt like I was a little bit behind. When you keep giving them power plays, they are going to hurt you.” The Sharks were 3 of 9 on the power play and have

scored 11 times over their last 36 chances. “The power play was huge,” Thornton said. “Especially in the third period, when they got two quick goals on us. It was good to respond.” Burns gave the Sharks, who are 8-2-1 against Calgary in their past 11 meetings, the early lead with an easy tap from in front of the net. Pavelski beat Kris Russell to a puck in the corner and fed a wide-open Burns less than a minute into the contest. “It’s always fun scoring on the first shift,” Pavelski said. Hannan made it 2-0 in the final minute of the first period with a long shot. Monahan put the Flames on the board with a power-play goal early in the second period. Sven Baertschi fed him the puck from behind the net, making it easy to beat Niemi. Pavelski and Marleau, who has a goal in five straight games, each scored on power plays — both getting an assist on the other’s score — to give the Sharks a 4-1 edge heading into the third period. “The first one I kind of set up in front of the net and Pavey gave me an outstanding pass through the box,” Marleau said. The Flames scored twice in the first four minutes of the final period to pull to 4-3. Lee Stempniak took a shot that bounced off Niemi’s pads directly to Backlund, who notched the short-handed goal before the Sharks’ goalie cold recover. Hudler scored two minutes later after taking a nice crossing pass from Monahan. Pavelski redirected Couture’s shot for a powerplay goal midway through the third period to put the Sharks on top 5-3. “Pav was in a great spot,” said Couture, who wore the ’A’ on his uniform for the first time. “We’ve worked on that play with the puck coming off the board and I just tried to get it to him.” Couture added an empty-netter with 1:22 remaining to play.

Dubnyk leads Oilers to road win over Senators BY THE CANADIAN PRESS Oilers 3 Senators 1 OTTAWA — After a very shaky start to the season, Edmonton Oilers goaltender Devan Dubnyk is finding his feet. Dubnyk turned aside 35 shots and collected his first win of the season on Saturday as the Oilers downed the Ottawa Senators 3-1 and Edmonton nears the end of a six-game road trip. The win comes after Dubnyk’s 37-save performance on Thursday was wasted in a 3-2 loss to the New York Islanders. “It’s nice to get out there and be myself and just worry about playing goal,” Dubnyk said after watching his save percentage balloon over the past two games. “It hasn’t been an easy start and it was nice the last two games just to re-

lax and go play hockey and know that I can be ready for these guys.” Ryan-Nugent Hopkins scored twice, including once into an empty net, and Jordan Eberle also scored for the Oilers (2-6-1), who halted a five-game losing streak. They wrap up the road trip in Montreal against the Canadiens on Tuesday. Chris Neil had the only goal for the Senators (3-3-2) and Robin Lehner made 18 saves in just his second start of the season. The Senators continue to be one of the most penalized teams in the NHL. On Saturday, Ottawa took seven penalties resulting in six power plays for the Oilers, and although none of them cost the Senators a goal, it is a situation that needs to be corrected. “Penalties are not something we’re going to forget about,” said Ottawa captain Jason Spezza, adding that the Oilers took a lot of penalties (six) them-

selves. “It was a game where both teams were taking penalties and it’s not like other games where it was lopsided. We’ll continue to talk about it until we start to take less penalties.” Senators forward Milan Michalek was called for goaltender interference when he ran into Dubnyk and teammate Jared Cowen was given an interference penalty as the play continued down into Ottawa’s end. The Oilers generated only one good scoring opportunity on the ensuing power play as they looked to build on a 2-0 advantage. After the Senators killed off both penalties they were quickly given a power play of their own as Ladislav Smid was called for hooking, but they too were unable to create anything offensively. “It was good to see how calm the guys were after that,” Nugent-Hopkins said.

“We didn’t get too much momentum off (the power play) and obviously not a goal which would have been huge, but we stuck with it and pulled out the two points. Ottawa got on the scoreboard as Neil was credited with his first goal of the season on a shot that looked more like a missed popup than a hockey play. In a scramble at the side of the Oilers’ goal Neil batted the puck out of midair and it seemed as though Dubnyk tried to catch the puck as it came down, but instead it landed in behind him and then went in. “We said in between periods that it wasn’t going to be a pretty one that went in, and that’s a prime example of a dirty goal,” Neil said. “You go to the net and you get rewarded and we just didn’t do enough of that and their goalie was able to see way too much.”

Alouettes take down Tiger-Cats MONTREAL WIN TIGHTENS PLAYOFF RACE IN CFL’S EAST DIVISION BY THE CANADIAN PRESS Alouettes 36 Tiger-Cats 5 MONTREAL — The Montreal Alouettes’ quarterback carousel has taken a promising turn with 2006 Heisman Trophy winner Troy Smith. The former Ohio State star who only joined the Alouettes in August threw three touchdown passes in his first CFL start as Montreal downed the Hamilton Tiger-Cats 36-5 to tighten the race for playoff positions on Sunday afternoon. “It’s been cool,” Smith said of his quick adaptation to 12man football. “My teammates have helped me out tremendously. “The adaptation is definitely still going on. I’m trying day in and day out to get things down pat. It’s been fun.” The team announced this week that CFL all-time passing leader Anthony Calvillo, who has been out since August with a concussion, will not return this season. That made finding a starter to finish out the campaign and take Montreal into the playoffs has been a priority. Tanner Marsh had a good stretch but then faltered, as did Josh Neiswander. Now it is Smith’s turn, and he passed the first test by completing 17 of 35 passes for 247 yards, three TDs and no interceptions.

“He did a great job,” said coach Jim Popp. “I don’t know if he was nervous. “We didn’t run everything right. It’s great to be able to take what we did today and improve on it. We know there’s a lot of upside to what we’re doing. We were moving the ball and scoring and we got over that 30-point mark like we said we needed to do.” S.J. Green, with two, and Arland Bruce were on the receiving end of TD throws, while Tyrell Sutton ran one in. Sean Whyte had two field goals as Montreal won for the third time in four games. The third-place Alouettes (7-9) are hoping to overtake Hamilton (8-8) for second place in the East Division and the right to play host to a playoff game. The teams meet again on Saturday in Guelph, Ont., with the winner taking the season series between the two clubs. The Montreal defence held CFL offensive player of the week C.J. Gable to no yards on three carries and only 39 yards on six catches. It also limited Henry Burris to 106 passing yards before he was replaced by Dan LeFevour late in the third quarter. Coach Kent Austin didn’t know what to make of a team that was coming off winning its season series with firstplace Toronto, who they can

They were anaemic on attack, and ruined a handful of positive plays with penalties. “Just generally speaking, for whatever reason, we weren’t ready to play and they were,” said Austin. “They brought the game to us. “They were more physical than us. They just whipped us in all three areas of the game. We weren’t disciplined. We had too many penalties. I’ve got to figure out why we

weren’t ready to play like we have been the last couple of weeks. 'I’ve got to get to the bottom of it. I’ve got to get my team better prepared.” The Ticats’ only scoring came from a Luca Congi field goal and a safety. “We executed our defence,” said Montreal linebacker Shea Emry. “We’ve had lots of games where we put that many points up and we let teams slip back in. “There were times we al-

most did that, but then we didn’t let them capitalize on those penalties or plays.” Smith has seen mostly spot duty since he signed, but after Neiswander struggled in a loss to Winnipeg last week, Popp decided to give the former Baltimore Raven and San Francisco 49er a start. Smith, the fourth Alouette quarterback to start a game this season, didn’t disappoint as he threw for 207 yards and three TDs in the first half as Montreal opened a 31-3 lead.

The Saskatchewan Roughriders’ middle linebacker forced two fumbles before halftime and knocked down a key second-down pass early in the first quarter as the Riders clinched a home playoff game for the first time since 2010 with a 35-14 win Saturday over the B.C. Lions. Saskatchewan (11-5) won its third straight game and the season series with B.C. (9-7), meaning it can finish no lower than second in the CFL’s West Division. The Lions (9-7) will finish third and travel to Regina or Calgary for the West semifinal. The Riders and Stampeders will play next Saturday in a must-win for Saskatchewan if it wants to maintain a chance at first place. “Mike lives one more week. He’ll keep the job for one more week,” quipped Riders head coach Corey Chamblin. “That’s what I’ll say about Mike McCullough. “His biggest test will be against (Stampeders running back) Jon Cornish. If he can prove that he can stay there, then he can play for the rest of the year at that spot.” McCullough forced turnovers two and four during a stretch in which B.C. coughed up the ball four times in five offensive plays. His first came when he stripped Lions running back Stefan Logan at the end of an 11-yard run to set up a 14-yard field goal by Chris Milo. His second victim was B.C. receiver Courtney Taylor, who coughed up the ball near midfield. Riders quarterback Darian Durant then threw 42 yards to Weston Dressler to set up a one-yard TD plunge from Kory Sheets and extend the team’s lead to 27-7 The game was McCullough’s sixth straight start in place of the injured Rey Williams. “I’m not going to replace him, he’s one of the best in the game,” McCullough said of Williams, out for the season with a knee injury suffered Sept. 8. “I just come in and do my own game. If I’m going to try and beat him I’m not going to be successful. So I’ve just got to do what I can do and we’re doing good on defence so we’re happy.” They were good enough Saturday to force eight turnovers in all, six of which resulted in 28 points. Late in the first quarter B.C. quarterback Thomas DeMarco fumbled under pressure from John Chick and the returning Weldon Brown returned the loose ball 46 yards for a touchdown and a 10-7 Saskatchewan lead. Three offensive plays later, DeMarco threw over the middle right into the arms of Riders halfback Carlos Thomas, leading to a 20-yard touchdown pass from Durant to Dressler. McCullough forced his second fumble of the game on the very next play, and on the play after that Taylor bobbled a catch that ended up in Craig Butler’s hands after a diving interception near midfield. Milo missed the ensuing field-goal attempt but the ball went deep enough for a single, and he nailed a 15-yard kick before halftime to extend the lead to 31-7. Milo had kicked his longest score, from 30 yards out, on Saskatchewan’s third possession of the game to get the Riders on the board. The Lions let Saskatchewan know they were still alive when Lin-J Shell intercepted Durant in the third and turned that into a seven-yard TD catch by Shawn Gore. But Tristan Jackson and Dwight Anderson added interceptions for Saskatchewan in the fourth quarter, and B.C. turned the ball over on downs late in the quarter allowing Milo to kick a 38-yard field goal to put the game away.

THE CANADIAN PRESS Argonauts 26 Blue Bombers 20 WINNIPEG — Andre Durie and Dontrelle Inman caught touchdown passes and Swayze Waters booted four field goals as the Toronto Argonauts clinched a home playoff date and knocked the Winnipeg Blue Bombers out of the post-season picture with a 26-20 win on Saturday. The narrow victory boosted Toronto’s record to 10-6 and stretched their lead atop the CFL East Division over the surging Hamilton TigerCats (8-7), who travel to Montreal for a game on Sunday. Winnipeg fell to 3-13 and were mathematically eliminated from the playoffs. The Bombers did make a valiant effort at the end. After being down 233 at halftime, Winnipeg kept Toronto scoreless in the third quarter and upped their own points to 23-10 with Will Ford’s one-yard TD run at 5:36 of the third. Bombers quarterback Max Hall then put up a nine-play, 94-yard scoring drive that ended with Rory Kohlert’s 27-yard TD reception to cut To-

ronto’s lead to 23-17 at 5:02 of the fourth quarter. Winnipeg placekicker Sandro DeAngelis surprised the crowd at Investors Group Field by completing a successful onside kick and recovered the ball himself at Winnipeg’s 50-yard line. The Bombers were forced to punt, and Mike Renaud booted a 40-yarder that Chad Owens took, but could only return to Toronto’s 14-yard line. Toronto punted and Winnipeg tried another comeback from midfield. Receiver Mike SimsWalker, a former NFLer with Jacksonville and St. Louis, made two long

catches in his impressive CFL debut and got the Bombers down to Toronto’s 13-yard line. But on second down with two yards to go, the Bombers committed a huge error as Hall got called for a time-count violation and the Bombers lost a down. DeAngelis made the 20-yard field goal and closed the gap to 2320 with 2:05 left in the game. Ray responded with a pass to Jason Barnes and got to Winnipeg’s 30-yard line, but the drive sputtered and Waters had to boot a 33-yard field goal for a 26-20 lead with 1:06 to go. Hall marched the

Bombers to Toronto’s 49-yard line, but couldn’t make enough connections and Winnipeg had to give up the ball on downs. Argonauts quarterback Ricky Ray, back for his second game after recovering from a shoulder injury, didn’t have his usual stellar outing, completing 21-of-35 pass attempts for 246 yards and his second interception of the season. Hall had his best quarterbacking performance of the season, going 30-of-50 for 385 yards with one TD and one pick. Waters also booted Toronto field goals from 37, 23 and 37 yards.

Valasquez stops Dos Santos to retain title UFC 166 BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS HOUSTON — Cain Velasquez stopped Junior Dos Santos in the fifth round Saturday night at UFC 166 to retain the heavyweight title. Dos Santos came out firing to start the final round, but Velasquez (13-1) worked him down to the mat only to have Dos Santos (16-3) get back up against the Octagon walls. The two traded lefts before Velasquez landed a left and took Dos Santos down head-first to the mat, causing referee Herb Dean to stop the bout at 3:09. “It was a pretty tough fight,” Velasquez said. “It was very difficult. It was a tough night. I give him a lot of credit, he is a tough fighter. We were ready for everything. We trained hard in camp and prepared for everything. I tried to get him down this time. I was trying to throw crisper punches this time. I love the competition.” The fight was third between the two. Dos Santos beat Velasquez in 1:04 in the first meeting in 2011, and Velasquez won the second by unanimous decision in 2012. “I’m definitely satisfied,” Velasquez said. “I just hope there are no more excuses on his part. That’s it.

We don’t look for the finish. We just put more pressure on and when it happens, it happens.” In the co-main event, Daniel Cormier (13-0) unanimously outpointed Roy Nelson (20-9) in a heavyweight bout, with all three judges scoring it 30-27. Velaquez took Dos Santos down twice in a row midway through the third round with several rights and pounced on him on the ground, but Dos Santos was able to make it to his feet. In the post-fight press conference Dana White said he thought the fight should have been stopped in the third round. “I’ve been around this sport and boxing for a long time and seen men who are too tough for their own good,” White said. “I think Junior Dos Santos is one of them in the last Cain fight and this Cain fight. I think that fight should have been stopped. I don’t think he should have taken more punishment.” Velasquez remained on the attack, landing several rights with Dos Santos up against the wall, opening up cuts on Dos Santos’ left ear and mouth. Velasquez continued the attack to begin the fourth round, landing several combinations in the first 40 seconds of the fourth round, and he continued the assault up against the Octagon wall. Dos Santos was able to break free and land a left. However, Velasquez landed more combinations, including a left that opened up a cut above Dos Santos’ right eye that stopped the fight for a moment be-

fore it was determined he could continue. Following the restart, Velasquez continued to land combinations, with Dos Santos getting in a left once. “He beat me up. What can I say?” Dos Santos said in the ring after the fight. “He’s a great fighter. I just want to give a good fight to the fans.” Dos Santos was not in the post-fight press conference. Velasquez landed several lefts to start the second round and a kick to the head as well, cutting Dos Santos on the bridge of his nose. Velasquez had Dos Santos locked up against the walls of the Octagon several times in the second round, but Dos Santos landed a right at the end of the second round. Velasquez took Dos Santos to the mat midway through the first round, but was unable to land any hard shots, and Dos Santos got to his feet. The two went after it from the start, with Velasquez landing a couple lefts, and Dos Santos hitting an uppercut to go along with two lefts. The crowd was firmly in Velasquez’s corner throughout the fight, yelling “Si, se puede” numerous times for the Mexican. In the co-main event, Cormier took Nelson down in each of the three rounds, including less than a minute into the bout, but he could not keep Nelson down. Cormier controlled the bout, landing more strikes than Nelson, but Cormier was not able to land combinations.

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Brandon Gibson (10) jumps over Buffalo Bills free safety Aaron Williams (23) and strong safety Da’Norris Searcy (25) for a touchdown during an NFL game, Sunday, in Miami Gardens, Fla. JETS 30, PATRIOTS 27, OT EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Nick Folk kicked a 42-yard field goal with 5:07 left in overtime. Folk got a second chance after he missed a 56-yarder moments earlier. But Chris Jones was called for unsportsmanlike conduct for pushing a teammate forward to try to block the kick, a new NFL rule. New York, given new life, ran the ball three times to set up Folk’s winner. Geno Smith threw a touchdown pass and ran for another score as the Jets (4-3) topped Tom Brady and the Patriots (5-2). New England tied it at 27 with 16 seconds left on Stephen Gostkowski’s 44-yard field goal. New England had defeated New York in six straight regular-season meetings, and saw its 12-game winning streak against the AFC East end. STEELERS 19, RAVENS 16 PITTSBURGH (AP) — Shaun Suisham drilled a 42-yard field goal with no time remaining. Suisham’s fourth field goal of the day pushed the Steelers (2-4) to their second straight win. Ben Roethlisberger completed 17 of 23 passes for 160 yards and a touchdown. He hit Antonio Brown for a pair of big gains on Pittsburgh’s final drive, putting Suisham well within range to win it. Running back Le’Veon Bell ran for a season-high 93 yards on 19 carries. Joe Flacco passed for 215 yards and a touchdown, but couldn’t stop the defending Super Bowl champions (3-4) from losing for the third time in their last four games. PACKERS 31, BROWNS 13 GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Aaron Rodgers guided an undermanned offence with 260 yards and three touchdowns, and Eddie Lacy ran for another score. Lacy finished with 82 yards, while tight end Jermichael Finley had a 10-yard touchdown catch in the first quarter before leaving with a neck injury. The team said he had movement in his extremities. Green Bay (4-2) won its third straight game. Rodgers finished 25 for 36 in methodically carving up Cleveland (34) despite already being without two of his top targets in injured receivers James Jones and Randall Cobb. The defence took care of the rest

Alberta is looking for more full-time nurses. Alberta is a province that has grown to over 4 million people and is still growing. Our health system is growing, too. To keep up, our nursing workforce has grown by 13 percent since 2010. And as it continues to grow, we need to create more full-time nursing positions, so patients get the consistent, reliable care they need from our nurses. Right now in Alberta, only 31 percent of nurses work full time compared to a national average of close to 60 percent. We will always need some nurses working part time. But more full-time nurses makes sense for patients, nurses and our health system.

COLTS 39 BRONCOS 33 INDIANAPOLIS — Andrew Luck threw for three touchdowns and ran for another Sunday night, outplaying predecessor Peyton Manning in a 39-33 victory over the previously unbeaten Denver Broncos. The victory ended the Broncos’ 17-game regular-season winning streak in the first game Manning played against his former team since being released in March 2012. Manning finished 29 of 49 for 386 yards with three TDs and one interception. He was sacked four times and tried desperately to rally the Broncos late. But the Colts (5-2) took advantage of his and Denver’s uncharacteristic mistakes. Luck converted an early fumble into a TD pass. Indy got nine points out of a second-quarter strip sack, and Luck scored on a 10-yard run in the third quarter, a drive helped by a series of defensive penalties. When the Broncos (6-1) finally had a chance to tie it, Manning was intercepted. Indianapolis has not lost consecutive games under Luck. CHIEFS 17, TEXANS 16 KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Jamaal Charles ran for 86 yards and a touchdown, Alex Smith also ran for a score and the scrappy Chiefs held off the banged-up Houston to remain unbeaten. The Chiefs were forced to punt the ball to Houston with 1:46 left in the game. But after Case Keenum threw an incompletion on first down, the young quarterback was stripped by linebacker Tamba Hali at his 2. Derrick Johnson recovered the fumble for the Chiefs. Smith simply kneeled from there as time ran out, allowing Kansas City (7-0) to extend the second-best start in franchise history. The 2003 team began the season 9-0. Keenum, making his first NFL start in place of the injured Matt Schaub, threw for 271 yards and a touchdown for the Texans (2-5). But he didn’t get much help from his run game after Arian Foster left in the first quarter with a hamstring injury and did not return. REDSKINS 45, BEARS 41 LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — Roy Helu’s third touchdown, a 3-yard run with 45 seconds to play, lifted the Redskins. Robert Griffin III completed 18 of 29 passes for 298 yards with two touchdowns and one interception for the Redskins (2-4), who have both of their wins against backup quarterbacks. This time it was Josh McCown, who entered in the second quarter after Jay Cutler left with a groin injury. Griffin also ran 11 times for a season-high 84 yards against a defence depleted by injuries, but the breakout performance came from rookie tight end Jordan Reed, who caught nine passes for 134 yards and one touchdown. McCown, playing in a regular-season game for the first time since the 2011 season, completed 14 of 20 passes for 204 yards with one touchdown. Matt Forte rushed for three touchdowns, Alshon Jeffrey had 105 yards receiving, and Devin Hester tied Deion Sanders’ NFL record for return touchdowns with an 81-yard put runback for the Bears (4-3).

Francisco cruised. Tramaine Brock also intercepted a pass, Justin Smith had two of the 49ers’ three sacks and Kassim Osgood recovered a muffed punt for a TD. The Titans (3-4) lost their third straight even with Jake Locker throwing for 326 yards with two TD passes in a fourth-quarter spurt that came up short. BILLS 23, DOLPHINS 21 MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — Mario Williams forced a fumble when he sacked Ryan Tannehill with less than three minutes left, setting up the winning field goal. Dan Carpenter, released in August after five seasons with the Dolphins, beat his former team by making a 31-yarder with 33 seconds to go. Rookie Nickell Robey returned an interception 19 yards for a touchdown on the third play of the game to help the Bills build an early 14-0 lead, but they had to rally after Brandon Gibson caught his second touchdown pass of the game to put Miami ahead. The injury-plagued Bills (3-4) ended a streak of six consecutive road losses, including two this season, while Miami (3-3) lost its third game in a row. BENGALS 27, LIONS 24 DETROIT (AP) — Mike Nugent’s 54-yard field goal as time expired lifted the Bengals. The AFC North-leading Bengals (5-2) won a game for the second straight week by the same score thanks to Nugent’s right foot. He made an overtime kick to give Cincinnati a win after it blew a 14-point, fourthquarter lead at Buffalo The Lions (4-3) looked like they did enough to send the game to OT, but rookie Sam Martin shanked a punt just 28 yards to midfield in the final minute.

JUNIOR B HOCKEY Landon Potter fired three goals to lead the Stettler Lightning to an 8-4 Heritage Junior B Hockey League win over the Red Deer Vipers Saturday at the Arena. Dylan Houston tallied twice for the visiting Lightning, who got additional goals from Connor Doucette, DJ Kistner and Joel Meredith. Replying for the Vipers were Connor Einhorn, on a penalty shot, Kale Lapointe, Brendan Dennis and Chris Robertson. Simon Thielman turned aside 33 shots for Stettler. Anthony Hamill and Klay Munro combined to make 27 saves for the hosts. Stettler took all five minor penalties called in the game. The win was the second in two nights for the Lightning, who on Friday downed the visiting Three Hills Thrashers 3-1. Scott Ternes, Kyler O’Connor and Adam Ternes, into an empty net, had the Stettler goals, while Tyler Newsham scored the lone marker for Three Hills. Thielman blocked 27 shots for the winners and Brady Hoover made 30 saves at the other end. The Thrashers bounced back Saturday to bury the visiting Ponoka Stampeders 11-2 behind two-goal performances from Lucas Jones, Spencer Fournier, Tom Vanderlinde and Tyrel Severtson. Newsham, Chris Williams and Lucas Deibert also scored for the hosts. Tye Munro and Tyson Crampain answered for the Stamps, who were outshot 53-33. On Sunday, the Blackfalds Wranglers doubled up the visiting Airdrie Thunder 6-3 as Tiann Anderson scored twice and Conner Zenchuk made 26 saves. Also scoring for the winners, who outshot their guests 38-29, were Kristopher Dalton, Jared Guilbault, Trent Hermary and Garrett Glasman. The Wranglers hit the road Friday and dropped a 6-5 decision to the Okotoks Bisons, the visitors’ goals coming from Matthew Johnson, Chance Abbott, Hermary, Colten Southwick and Guilbault. Thomas Isaman made 30 saves for the Wranglers, who were outshot 40-36.

CHINOOK HOCKEY LEAGUE The defending Allan Cup champion Bentley Generals easily won their 2013-14 Chinook Hockey League regular-season home-opener Sunday, dumping the visiting Innisfail Eagles 7-0. Connor Shields and Cody Esposito each tallied twice for the Generals, who opened their season with a 4-3 shootout win over the host Fort Saskatchewan Chiefs Saturday night. Also scoring for the Generals Sunday were Randall Gelech, Chris Neiszner and Curtis Austring, while Travis Yonkman stopped 24 shots for the shutout. The Eagles, who trailed 4-0 after one period and 5-0 after 40 minutes, got a combined 36-save outing from starter Jonathan Larose and Bryce Luker. On Saturday, Austring tallied the lone shootout goal to lift the Generals past the Chiefs. Gelech, Shields and Donald Morrison had regulation-time goals for Bentley. Todd Ford turned aside 29 shots for the winners. Chiefs netminder Jim Watt kept his team in the game with a 44-save performance. On Friday, the host Eagles downed the Okotoks Drillers — a first-year Chinook League team — 5-3 as Tylor Kellor notched the winner on a late thirdperiod power play and then sealed the deal with an empty-netter. The other Innisfail goals were supplied by Darrin Robak, Luke Boyer and Aaron Boyer. Luker made 29 saves for the win as the Eagles held a 45-32 edge in shots.

The Notre Dame senior boys volleyball Cougars won’t be satisfied with anything less than a berth in the provincial tier 1 high school championship tournament in late November. That’s understandable, considering the team is ranked fifth in the province. “We’ve been playing well. Our practices have been going well and the guys are really focused,” said fourth-year head coach AJ Mahoney, whose host squad took top honours in the Cougar Classic tournament during the weekend with a 3-0 (25-12, 25-17, 25-18) win over the Sherwood Park Salisbury Sabres in the championship final. “This is probably the most complete team I’ve had and we’ve set some pretty high goals for ourselves for the end of the season,” added Mahoney, whose team didn’t lose a set in the tournament. The Cougars, who open regular-season play Thursday against the visiting Hunting Hills Lightning, have already experienced a measure of success this fall, reaching the semifinals of the prestigious, 24-team Panther Invitational tournament at Spruce Grove, an event that features clubs from across western Canada. The Cougars are led by captains Daimyn Biletsky, a middle blocker, and Bennett Bolen, who plays an outside position. “They did a lot of work in the off-season to really prepare themselves,” said Mahoney. “And then our other Grade 12s have come prepared to step into starting roles and make sure that they deserve to stay there.” The other Notre Dame starters are outside hitter Eric Jensen and Michael Pearce, Libero Nolan Bruin and setter Colton Bodwell. New to the team are Kane LeBlanc, Nick

Schumacher, Jesse Muirhead, Alex Elkins, Jordy Quinn and Devin Sheridan. “We have great depth and it’s looking good for next year too,” said Mahoney. This season the Cougars senior boys and girls teams are playing all of their league games against the other two Red Deer schools — Hunting Hills and Lindsay Thurber. “We decided to do this just for travel reasons. It was eating up a lot of our budget and it wasn’t always beneficial,” said Mahoney of the Red Deer schools withdrawing from the Central Alberta League. “We had guys coming home late when they had school the next day and we had nine or 10 league games in a 12-week season. It ended up being a lot with all the travel and competing in tournaments.” Mahoney admitted that some of the rural schools were also in favour of the Red Deer schools forming their own league. “That was part of it, but the bottom line is we have a great league set-up here,” he said. “It’s nice that all three (city) high schools are fairly strong and we can get that good competition without necessarily having to rely on outside sources for it.” Just one of the three Red Deer schools — in both the boys and girls categories — will qualify for the provincials Nov. 28-30 at Edmonton. The first-place team will get a bye into the zone final and will face the semifinal winner for the rights to advance. “It’s going to be tough,” said Mahoney. “Lindsay Thurber is quite strong again this year, they’re ranked No. 1 in the province. That’s who we’re aiming for, we have our sights set on them. “We’re going to continue to build so that we’re ready for the challenge at the end of November.” ● Cougars senior girls firstyear coach Mike Kelly is in

Airdrie’s Roy wins Elks junior bonspiel Michael Roy and his Airdrie rink downed Jeremy Harty’s foursome out of Okotoks/Nanton 5-4 Sunday in the division one final of the Red Deer Elks junior bonspiel at the Pidnerney Centre. The Roy crew earned a cheque for $900 for taking top honours in the Alberta Junior Curling Tour event, while Harter’s team won $500. Semifinal losers Kyler Kleibrink of Okotoks, who had Ty Parcells of Red Deer at lead, and Carter Lautner of Edmonton each picked up $300. Daylan Vavrek of Grande Prairie was a 6-4 winner over Colin Harty of Okotoks in the division two final, pocketing $600 in the process. Harty earned $300 and rinks skipped by Maria Sherrer of Lacombe and Sam Smith each picked up $200 for finishing third and fourth. In the division three finale, Logan Mortemore of Edmonton was a 9-3 winner over the Red Deer College 1 team skipped by Kaitlyn Sherrer of Lacombe.

MINOR HOCKEY Minor midget AAA The Red Deer Northstar Chiefs split a pair of weekend home contests, falling 5-3 to the Calgary Blackhawks Saturday and beating the Southeast Tigers 3-1 Sunday afternoon. Braden Olsen tallied twice in Sunday’s victory. Reed Engman also scored for Northstar and winning netminder Lane Congdon made 22 saves as the Chiefs held a 41-23 advantage in shots.

charge of a relatively inexperienced group, although he’s been pleased with the players’ attitude and athleticism. “We have a younger, hardworking group. We also have an athletic group, but we don’t have a lot of experience,” he noted. “We’ve seen glimmers of hope this fall, and then we’ve taken a step back. But we’re still moving forward. “This is a very coachable group and they’re wiling to get in there and learn from experience.” Back for another season are Libero Kelsie Caine, setter Madison Schmidt and right sides Jenna Soroka and Brynna Maloughney. The rookies are setter Dori Henderson, outsides Megan Hansen, Karley Jackshaw and Celina Dion, middles Olivia Piche, Kelsey Jackshaw and Hayley Hollings, outside/Libero Cierra Stephens and Libero Kirsten Pinkney. “We have a young team, but there’s a lot of potential there as well. If the girls can get that confidence, which is huge, and put everything together then they’ll be able to compete with a lot of teams.” So far this fall, the Cougars have qualified for the semifinals of the Red Deer College tournament and placed in the top eight of the University of Alberta tourney. The also finished second in their pool in the Panther Invitational, before losing to a Vancouver team in a cross-over playoff. “We’re just hoping to get better each week,” said Kelly, who is assisted by Robyn Best and Megan Schmidt. “We don’t want to peak early, we’re looking to peak in the middle of November and towards the end of the month. We’ll keep learning and working hard.” Salisbury defeated the Sylvan Lake Lakers 2-0 in the girls final of the Cougar Classic.

Wolverines 3 Grizzlys 2 WHITECOURT — Jordan Davies potted the winner early in the third period as the Whitecourt Wolverines slipped past the Olds Grizzlys 3-2 in an AJHL contest Saturday. Goals from Taylor Bilyk and Chris Gerrie staked the Grizzlys to a 2-0 lead after 20 minutes, but the hosts pulled even with second-period power-play goals off the sticks of Colten Mayor and Evan Warmington. Whitecourt netminder Tanner Kovacs turned aside 30 shots. Jake Tamagi made 21 saves for Olds. A line brawl at the conclusion of the game resulted in 11 game misconducts, including six to the Grizzlys.

RDC teams end regular season with wins BY DANNY RODE ADVOCATE STAFF Kings 6 Broncos 1 It would have been easy for the RDC Kings to take the Olds College Broncos for granted. After all the Kings are one of the premier teams in the Alberta Colleges Men’s Soccer League while the Broncos were winless on the season. But the Kings had first place on the line when they took to the field against the Broncos Sunday afternoon at RDC and showed it as they rolled to a 6-1 victory, which wrapped up first place in the South Division. The Kings put themselves in position to capture top spot for the first time since the 1980s, with an inspired 3-1 win over the Trojans at SAIT Saturday. “We earned ourselves a bye into the semifinals and all the credit to the guys,” said Kings head coach Steve Fullarton. “The win at SAIT was huge , , , a great character builder, and today’s win was a professional effort as we didn’t take anything for granted. “I couldn’t be more delighted.” The one team the Kings, 7-3-0, had problems with this season was the Lakeland College Rustlers, who they lost to twice. “The result a couple of weeks ago against Lakeland was a kick in the butt, but the players had two weeks to think about it and they made amends. Yesterday and today they were brilliant.” Andrew Jevne and Mark Ibbotson scored twice each against Olds with singles added by Gurjit Sandhu, on a penalty kick, and Logan Grenier.

Mahad Mohamed scored for Olds against RDC netminder Morgan Drews. Nolan Hamilton scored twice against SAIT with Ibbotson collecting a single marker. Rayden Beveridge was in goal. The Kings led 2-0 early against SAIT, who scored late in the first half. “The second half they came at us, but we defended well and when Nolan got his second goal we were able to relax a bit,” said Fullarton. The Kings face the winner of the NAIT-Medicine Hat quarter-final match. Grant MacEwan finished first in the north and will meet the winner of the Lethbridge-Concordia quarter-final. The Kings will play for a medal no matter what happens, but that’s not what Fullarton is after. “The league is sending two teams to the nationals and that’s our goal,” he said. The Kings will go into the playoffs relatively healthy, although they’ll likely be without Jeremy Gopal, who received a red card Sunday. Queens 3 Broncos 0 The Queens finished off their regular season with a 3-0 win over the Broncos, but it was a 1-0 loss to SAIT on Saturday that cost them second place in the South Division. “We finished in a tie with them and they held the edge in head-to-head,” said Queens head coach Dave Colley. “While we would have liked to finish second, I’m proud of the girls in making the playoffs. “We went into the season with four returnees and only 12 players and were looking to add players after we opened camp. After our first trip to Medicine Hat I didn’t think we would make the playoffs,

We hit the crossbar, had one goal called back on a questionable offside and another ball was cleared from the line by a de-

fender.” Colley loves the fact he’ll have at least half his team back next season and looks for the experience they get at the league playoffs in Medicine Hat as a bonus. “We lose some good players, but we’ll have double the number of girls back and some third-year players, which is important,” he said. Kayla Blacquiere scored twice against Olds with Tatiana Aspillaga connecting

once. Jesse Stewart recorded her fifth shutout of the season. The Queens face NAIT in the quarter-finals while SAIT and Grande Prairie clash in the other quarter-final. Medicine Hat won the South Division and MacEwan the north. “We worked our backsides off to get here and we’ll go to the playoffs and enjoy ourselves. I know we’ll play a very good team, but we’ll see,” said Colley. drode@reddeeradvocate.com

Kings get pair of OT wins over Concordia in men’s hockey RDC ATHLETICS BY ADVOCATE STAFF Kings 5 Thunder 4 (OT) EDMONTON — For the second time in a little over 24 hours the RDC Kings needed extra time to pull out a victory over the Concordia University College of Alberta Thunder in Alberta Colleges Men’s Hockey League action. On Friday the Kings edged the Thunder 3-2 in Penhold, then finished off a high-scoring affair Saturday with a 5-4 victory at the Glengarry Arena. Dustin Lebrun notched the winner at 1:52 of the five-minute extra period, as he brought the puck out of the corner, made a move on netminder Rhys Hadfield and roofed his shot. “A real nice play from in close,” said Kings head coach Trevor Keeper. “That was the way you had to beat their goaltender. He’s big and covers the bottom of the net and is real tough to beat from the outside.” The win gave the Kings a 6-2 record and moved them into a tie for first place with the SAIT Trojans, 5-1-0-2, who split a weekend doubleheader with the NAIT Ooks. The Kings never trailed as Mike Marianchuk opened the scoring at 6:06 of the first period with a shorthanded marker with Jeremy Smith tying the

HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL The Sylvan Lake Lakers and Lacombe Rams kept their Central Alberta High School Football League championship hopes alive Saturday. Both teams advanced to the league semifinals as the Lakers downed the Stettler Wildcats 222 and the Rams stopped the Camrose Trojans 3818. The Lakers, who finished fourth in their division, never trailed the Wildcats, who were first in their division, holding quarter leads of 1-0, 12-0 and 21-2. Shon Zenert had two touchdowns and Landon Rosene one for the Lakers with Aden Samill kicking two converts and

Josh Barrie a pair of singles. The Stettler points came on a safety. Rosene led the Lakers with 123 yards rushing on 17 carries while Trent Kondor had 52 yards on eight carries. Rosene also caught three passes for 28 yards. Nick Baharally led the ‘Cats with 74 yards rushing on 10 carries while Thomas Cassidy had 56 yards on 10 tries. The Lakers face the Rocky Mountain House West Central Rebels and the Rams meet the Hunting Hills Lightning in semifinal action. The Rams-Lightning game is expected to go Friday at 7 p.m. at Great Chief Park.

FIGURE SKATING BY THE CANADIAN PRESS DETROIT — Canada’s Kirsten Moore-Towers and Dylan Moscovitch set a personal best score en route to the silver medal in pairs on Sunday at Skate America, the first stop on the ISU Grand Prix figure skating circuit. World champions Tatiana Volosozhar and Maxim Trankov of Russia won the gold medal with 237.71 points, Moore-Towers and Moscovitch followed at 208.45 and Ksenia Stolbova and Fedor Klimov of Russia were third at 187.35. It was the same top-three order after Saturday’s short program. “This is the kind of start we definitely wanted in an Olympic year,” said Moscovitch, from Toronto. “It’s a confirmation that we are doing the right thing with our programs. And we know there is still a lot of room for improvement.” Moore-Towers and Moscovitch’s previous best overall score was 199.50 set in a fourth place finish at the world championships last season. “It’s really been a combination of factors that’s helped us achieve these scores this early in the season,” said Moore-Towers from St. Catharines, Ont. “Our programs are a lot more consistent and we are a lot better at telling a story when we perform.”

game at 18:42. RDC took a 3-1 lead early in the second frame as Pat Martens and Riley Point connected at 1:28 and 5:01. However, the Thunder got power play markers from Brock Genyk and Chase Fallis and it was 3-3 after 40 minutes. The Kings once again took the lead in the third period on a goal by Riley Simpson at 6:28, but Smith notched his second of the game at 17:03 against RDC goalie Mike Salmon to force overtime. “It’s a tough building to play in,” said Keeper. “It’s a little rink with a concrete wall along one side. It takes some getting used to. I can see their team having an advantage because they are used to it.” Salmon finished with 34 saves for the Kings, who had 45 shots on Hadfield. The Kings return to action on the weekend as they host Keyano College of Fort McMurray Friday at 7:15 p.m. and Saturday at 1:30 p.m. at the Penhold Regional Multiplex. Queens 78 Eagles 69 The ACAC Women’s Basketball League season couldn’t have started any better for the RDC Queens. The Queens put together a strong finishing kick to beat The Kings University College Eagles 78-69 in Edmonton Saturday. “We were down by five, but put together a kick down the stretch to win,” said Queens head coach Mike Woollard. “It was a strong team effort. We got balanced scoring and we did a good job of taking care of the ball. They used a press all game and we finished with 20 turnovers. That would have been

double last year.” Jessica Foley was named the RDC player of the game, finishing with nine points, seven rebounds and two assists. Desirae Paterson had 17 points and Mozanga Ekwalanga had 10 points and 10 boards. “We had a good preseason and eventhough we didn’t win much we learned a lot about playing together and you could see that today,” said Woollard. “There was a lot of energy, we executed when we had to and pulled out a big win against a good team. It appears as if we’re going in the right direction.” Kings 82 Eagles 73 It was a tale of two games for the Kings. They dominated the opening half, leading by 20 before letting down in the third quarter. “By the start of the fourth quarter we were tied,” grumbled Kings head coach Clayton Pottinger. “But we also ran into foul trouble, which didn’t help either.” Jacob Cusumano had 18 points, Ashaunti Hogan 17 and Lloyd Strickland 12 for the Kings. “They were our most consistent players,” said Pottinger. The RDC teams are on the road again next week as they visit Keyano College in Fort McMurray on Friday and NAIT on Saturday. They open at home Nov. 1 against Olds. ● The Olds women took both of their games against St. Mary’s University of Calgary — 65-40 Friday and 60-43 Saturday— while the men’s lost both games to St. Mary’s — 103-73 and 94-75.

Allen closed with a 5-under 65, also birdieing the par-5 18th in regulation to match Browne at 13-under 197 at Rock Barn. Browne shot a 64, charging to the lead with seven birdies over a nine-hole stretch. In the playoff, Allen put his

second shot within 10 feet, and Browne hooked his second shot badly into the rough off the green. Allen’s eagle putt just lipped out, and he tapped in for birdie. Browne missed a 40-foot putt for birdie and settled for par. Second-round leader Bernhard Langer had a 69 to finish third at 11 under.

Bearded BoSox ready for fresh-faced Cards BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WORLD SERIES

Big Papi, Dustin Pedroia and the bearded guys from Boston. Michael Wacha, Trevor Rosenthal and those fresh mugs from St. Louis. Pretty neat face-off in this World Series. Cardinals-Red Sox, once again in October. Fully rested, they’ll start Wednesday night at Fenway Park with Boston opening as a slim favourite. Post-season stars from past and present — Carlos Beltran, David Freese, John Lackey, David Ortiz and Adam Wainwright. Juicy plotlines — can Gold Glove catcher Yadier Molina shut down Jacoby Ellsbury and the runnin’ Red Sox? Can all-world closer Koji Uehara stop Matt Holliday and the Cardinals? Plus, plenty of history — think Stan Musial vs. Ted Williams in 1946, Bob Gibson vs. Carl Yastrzemski in ’67 or Pedro Martinez vs. Albert Pujols in 2004. Or, perhaps more memorably that last time, Curt Schilling and the bloody sock vs. The Curse. The Red Sox and Cardinals are hardly arch enemies, however. They haven’t played since Kevin Youkilis homered over the Green Monster in the 13th inning on June 22, 2008. This year, Boston and St. Louis bounced back from disappointments and tied for the most victories in the majors with 97. Not since the Braves and

Yankees in 1999 have league win leaders met in the World Series (the Cardinals and Red Sox were the top-scoring teams in their leagues, too). Mike Napoli, Shane Victorino and Boston’s scraggly band rose under first-year manager John Farrell, a season after the team hit bottom under Bobby Valentine with its most losses in nearly five decades. Matt Carpenter, Matt Adams and St. Louis rebounded a year after wasting a 3-1 lead in the NL championship series against the Giants. Manager Mike Matheny got lots of help from a rookie-laden staff. Wacha was the MVP of the NLCS and is 3-0 with an 0.43 ERA in the post-season. Rosenthal took over the closer role with a 100 mph fastball. Shelby Miller, Carlos Martinez and others also made major contributions. The Cardinals captured their 19th NL pennant by trouncing Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers on Friday night in Game 6 of the NLCS. “Watching them last night, they’ve got a fantastic team. And a lot of young power arms that will walk to that mound,” Farrell said. The Red Sox earned their 13th pennant Saturday night, riding Victorino’s go-ahead grand slam to a 5-2

victory over Detroit in Game 6 of the ALCS. Uehara was the MVP with a win and three saves. “It’s been a special ride,” Pedroia said, “and we’re still going.” For Beltran, this will be his first time in the World Series. For the Cardinals, it’s their fourth trip in 10 years. For the Red Sox, it’s their third Series visit in the last decade. And they hope for a repeat performance from 2004, when they never trailed during a four-game sweep of the Cardinals and won their first championship since 1918. Johnny Damon playfully called his Boston teammates a bunch of “idiots” and Kevin Millar exhorting them to “Cowboy Up!” Manny Ramirez was the MVP of the series while Ortiz showed he was more than a slugger, switching from designated hitter to snazzy fielder at first base when the Series shifted to old Busch Stadium. There are just a few leftovers from that fall. Ortiz lined a key grand slam in this ALCS. Molina is now regarded as baseball’s best defensive catcher — he was 21 in that ’04 matchup and a backup to Matheny. Now, their teams are set to meet for the fourth time in a World Series. Aside from Dodgers-Yankees, there hasn’t been a more common pairing since that initial Red Sox-Cardinals meeting in 1946. Here we go again. “We’ve still got one more step,” Victorino said.

Simpson pulls away for six-stroke win in Las Vegas BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Ducks stay hot with win over Stars BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS DUCKS 6 STARS 3 ANAHEIM, Calif. — Emerson Etem got his first career short-handed goal late in the second period after Corey Perry scored twice to tie the game, and the Anaheim Ducks extended the best start in franchise history with a 6-3 victory over the Dallas Stars on Sunday. The defending Pacific Division champions have won seven straight following a 6-1 loss at Colorado on opening night, tying the longest streak in club history. Anaheim captain Ryan Getzlaf had a goal and three assists, and 43-year-old Teemu Selanne extended his goal streak to three games. Ryan Garbutt, Brenden Dillon and Shawn Horcoff scored during the final 10 minutes of the first period for Dallas. Jack Campbell made 41 saves in his NHL debut. Anaheim goalie Frederik Andersen also made his NHL debut in net, replacing Jonas Hiller at the start of the second with a 3-1 deficit. Andersen stopped all 24 shots he faced, two days after he was promoted from Norfolk of the AHL because of Viktor Fasth’s lower-body injury. BLUE JACKETS 3, CANUCKS 1 COLUMBUS, Ohio — R.J. Umberger scored his first goal of the season with 8:46 left and Columbus ended a four-

game losing streak with a victory over Vancouver. Curtis McElhinney, making his first appearance for the Blue Jackets in place of Vezina Trophy winner Sergei Bobrovsky, had 37 saves. Bobrovsky was given the night off. Marian Gaborik and Ryan Johansen also scored for the Blue Jackets, who won for the first time at home this season after losing their first two. Henrik Sedin had the goal for the Canucks. Eddie Lack stopped 26 shots in place of Roberto Luongo, rested on the second night of back-to-back games for Vancouver. Umberger and Johansen each had an assist.

TORONTO — Lanni Marchant was taking her first steps when Oshawa, Ont., native Sylvia Ruegger set Canada’s record time in the women’s marathon in 1985. On Sunday, the 28-year-old took that mark and beat it. Marchant set the new Canadian record at the Toronto Waterfront Marathon with a time of two hours 28 minutes, besting Ruegger’s mark of 2:28:36. Krista DuChene of Brantford, Ont., crossed the finish line 32 seconds after her Canadian teammate, clocking in at 2:28:32 to also beat Ruegger’s time. “The day was perfect. Both Krista and I ran

PREDATORS 3, JETS 1 WINNIPEG — Carter Hutton made 37 saves for his first NHL win to lead Nashville past Winnipeg. Eric Nystrom, Patric Hornqvist and Matt Cullen scored for Nashville. The 27-year-old Hutton was given his second career start when Predators coach Barry Trotz chose to rest Pekka Rinne after the team’s victory Saturday night in Montreal. Evander Kane had the lone goal for Winnipeg. The Predators had only seven shots in the second period, but made three of them count as they took control of the game. The win extended Nashville’s point streak to five games. Nystrom opened the scoring 20 seconds into the second period with a short-handed effort.

perfect. I am ecstatic right now,” Marchant said after the race. “I think Sylvia Ruegger was ready for Canadian women to take that jump and set a new record.” Marchant will take home $8,000 in prize money plus a $28,000 bonus for her record-breaking time. The London, Ont., native placed 44th at the women’s marathon at the world track and field championships in Moscow last summer after experiencing significant cramping in the left side of her body. She said she thought about her experience in Moscow during the Toronto race. “My calves didn’t cramp as bad as the worlds, but they definite-

ly started to hurt. ... After the first 10 kilometres I though, ’OK, you are feeling alright. Stay with the group until 20 km.’ And then 20 km came and then 30 km,” Marchant said. “I guess about 33 km or 34 km in, I kind of pulled away from Krista and I was (thinking), ’I have to keep going.’ The worlds was in the back of mind, and with a flip of a switch things can go wrong. So I thought ’take control, stay patient.”’ Prior to the Moscow event, Canada had not had a woman run the distance at a world championship since 2003. Marchant and DuChene represent a resurgence in the sport among Canadian women. DuChene, who clocked a personal best at the Toronto event, said she was happy to be running alongside Marchant through most of the race.

NHL ROUNDUP

LAS VEGAS — Webb Simpson got the fast start he has looking for — in the final round at TPC Summerlin and in the PGA Tour’s new wraparound season. Simpson birdied two of the first three holes Sunday, pulling away for a six-stroke win in the second event of the season. “One over through three yesterday and 2 under today felt like a huge difference,” Simpson said. “And it was because it really let me slow down and pace myself, and you know, try to let the guys come after me.” Winning for the first time since the 2012 U.S. Open, Simpson closed with a 5-under 66 in the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. He finished at 24-under 260 after opening with rounds of 64, 63 and 67 to take a four-stroke lead into the final round. “As we were going kind of middle of the round, pins were tough, greens were drying out and I knew it would take a really special round for somebody to shoot 7, 8 under,” Simpson said. “So, I felt like I was in control, and I asked my caddie, once I hit it on the green on 17 where we stood. And I was just thankful that I was able to kind of manage my golf ball the last couple rounds.” Simpson earned $1.08 million for his

fourth PGA Tour title. In addition to the U.S. Open last year at The Olympic Club, he won the Wyndham Championship and Deutsche Bank Championship in 2011. Ryo Ishikawa and Jason Bohn tied for second. Ishikawa, the Japanese player who had to play the Web.com Tour Finals to regain his PGA Tour card, shot a 65. Bohn had a 66. Charley Hoffman was fourth at 17 under after a 64. “When you get that far up the leaderboard every putt you make is worth big dollars and big FedEx Cup points,” Hoffman said. “So, to get the year started off on the right foot, you always want to make those putts.” Chesson Hadley, second entering the final round, had a 70 to drop into a tie for fifth at 16 under with Luke Guthrie, Troy Matteson and Charles Howell III. Guthrie and Matteson shot 64, and Howell had a 65. Matteson had seven straight birdies — on Nos. 9-15 — to fall one short of the tournament record set by Jerry Kelly in 2003. “It was a really good ball-striking round,” Matteson said. “As a matter of fact, when I got to 16, I thought I was going to get that eighth one and I ended up hitting the pin and almost going into the lake, so I would have had a tap-in there. But you know what, all in all it’s a great end to my week. I didn’t quite figure it out in the middle (of the tournament), but I certainly put it together today.”

Rift between U.S. and Israel exposed in talks with Iran

WORLD

BRIEFS

Documents say U.S. gained access to email of Mexican president

ISRAEL’S PM CALLED ON U.S. TO STEP UP PRESSURE ON IRAN DESPITE POSSIBILITY OF EASING TOUGH ECONOMIC PRESSURE BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS JERUSALEM — Just days after the first round of global nuclear talks with Iran, a rift appears to be emerging between Israel and its closest ally, the United States. Israel’s prime minister on Sunday called on the U.S. to step up the pressure on Iran, even as American officials hinted at the possibility of easing tough economic pressure. Meanwhile, a leading Israeli daily reported the outlines of what could be construed in the West as genuine Iranian compromises in the talks. The differing approaches could bode poorly for Israel as the talks between six global powers and Iran gain steam in the coming months. Negotiators were upbeat following last week’s talks, and the next round of negotiations is set to begin Nov. 7. Convinced Iran is pursuing nuclear weapons, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu believes the Iranians are trying to trick the West into easing economic sanctions while still pushing forward with their nuclear program. Iran insists its program is for peaceful purposes. “I think that in this situation as long as we do not see actions instead of words, the international pressure must continue to be applied and even increased,” Netanyahu told his Cabinet. “The greater the pressure, the greater the chance that there will be a genuine dismantling of the Iranian military nuclear program.” Israel considers a nucleararmed Iran a threat to its very survival, citing Iranian references to Israel’s destruction. Netanyahu says pressure must be maintained until Iran halts all enrichment of uranium, a key step in producing a nuclear weapon; removes its stockpile of enriched

uranium from the country; closes suspicious enrichment facilities and shutters a facility that could produce plutonium, another potential gateway to nuclear arms. Despite Netanyahu’s warnings, there are growing signs that any international deal with Iran will fall short of his demands. Over the weekend, U.S. officials said the White House was debating whether to offer Iran the chance to recoup billions of dollars in frozen assets if it scales back its nuclear program. The plan would stop short of lifting sanctions, but could nonetheless provide Iran some relief. In an interview broadcast Sunday on NBC, U.S. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew said it was “premature” to talk of easing sanctions. But he stopped short of endorsing the tough Israeli line and suggested the U.S. would take a more incremental approach in response to concrete Iranian gestures. Asked whether he was worried the U.S. might ease the sanctions prematurely, Netanyahu urged against a “partial deal” with Iran. “I don’t advise doing that,” he said on NBC’s Meet the Press. Details from last week’s talks in Geneva have remained tightly guarded, but short-range priorities have been made clear. The U.S. and allies seek to roll back Iran’s highest-level uranium enrichment. Iran wants the West to start easing sanctions. The Israeli daily Haaretz on Sunday reported what it said were the key Iranian proposals last week. Citing an unidentified senior Israeli official who had been briefed by the Americans, the newspaper said that Iran is ready to halt all enrichment of 20 per cent, limit lower-level enrichment of 5 per cent and scale back the number of centrifuges it is operating for enrichment. It also claimed that Iran expressed willingness to

Bolivia coca growers kill member of eradication squad, hold eight hostages LA PAZ, Bolivia — Bolivian authorities say a second member of a government coca eradication squad has died of gunshot wounds suffered in an ambush by coca growers, who are holding eight others hostage. Interior Minister Carlos Romero says 20 more members of the joint military-police team were wounded in Saturday’s attack in the community of Apolo, 90 miles north of La Paz. It was the first fatal attack on an eradication team during the nearly eight-year presidency of Evo Morales, a coca-growers union leader. Romero says a police officer died Sunday. An army lieutenant died Saturday from a bullet that pierced a lung. Local leader Gregorio Cari accuses security forces of attacking growers with tear gas and gunshots. The government considers two-thirds of Bolivia’s coca crop legal. But it eradicates unapproved cultivation.

Kenyan soldiers caught on camera looting items during mall attack KAMPALA, Uganda — Men in fatigues walked out of a store in Nairobi’s Westgate Mall like ordinary shoppers, holding plastic bags heavy with unknown items after Islamic extremists staged an attack. Others looked behind counters as they descended into the shopping centre to fight the militants, and lifted items. In security camera video seen by The Associated Press Sunday, some members of Kenya’s armed forces appeared to loot a store during the four-day siege of what used to be Nairobi’s most upscale mall. At least 67 people were killed in the attack.

reduce the operations of its most controversial nuclear facilities, and perhaps open them to unannounced inspections. Netanyahu’s office declined comment on the report, though it confirmed the U.S. has kept it updated on the nuclear talks. The Yediot Ahronot daily newspaper said an “explosion” between Netanyahu and President Barack Obama appears to be inevitable. While Israeli officials are intrigued by the Iranian offer, it said “officials in the prime minister’s inner circle harbour a deep concern ... that the American president is going to be prepared to ease sanctions on Iran even before the talks have been completed.” Ephraim Asculai, a former official of the Israel Atomic Energy Commission and currently a research fellow at the Institute for National Security Studies, said it was too early to talk of a gap between Israel and the United States because the U.S. position on a compromise was not yet clear. He said the most important thing is to prevent Iran from stalling while it moves forward with its weapons program. But Yoel Guzansky, an Iran expert at the institute and a former national security aide in the prime minister’s office, said there will always be a gap between the U.S. and Israel due to their different military capabilities and the level of threat they face. Guzansky said Israeli officials realize that they will not get everything they seek, and are pressing a maximalist view in hopes of getting as many concessions out of Iran as possible. “It appears that the Americans are interested in a scaled approach,” he said. “Israel is very concerned about this and it has good reason to. It’s afraid the deal will become a slippery slope,” he said.

MEXICO CITY — A report citing documents from National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden says the U.S. gained access to the email system of former Mexican President Felipe Calderon. The German news magazine Der Spiegel cited the Snowden documents in a story posted Sunday. Der Spiegel says the documents describe an operation dubbed “Flat liquid” that claim to have accessed Mexico’s “presidencia” domain, which was also purportedly used by members of Calderon’s Cabinet. Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, where Calderon is now a fellow, did not respond to emails requesting comment. Earlier, a document dated June 2012 indicated the NSA had read current Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto’s emails before he was elected. Pena Nieto has said that would be an illegal act if it occurred, and his administration has demanded an investigation.
