Veer vows to unify city JEFFERIES PONDERS FUTURE AFTER 18 YEARS IN PUBLIC OFFICE BY CRYSTAL RHYNO ADVOCATE STAFF Tara Veer is Red Deer’s new mayor. Veer, a third-term councillor, took a deciding 9,400 votes, followed by Cindy Jefferies in a close second with 7,971 votes. An emotional Veer called Monday evening’s results surreal and thanked her volunteer team and supporters. “I am just honoured to be able to serve Red Deer in this capacity,” said Veer, 35. “It’s going to be a great four years and the best is yet to come.” Veer said she has had a love of politics since she was a young age. Veer said the city took a chance with her at a very young age as a councillor and now they have trusted her in the role of mayor. “I just feel so honoured and privileged to be able to represent the people of my community that I know and love so dearly,” said Veer. She said the goal now is to work with the new council and bring unity in the community. Jefferies, 50, thanked her team of volunteers and supporters for their work over the campaign. Disappointed, she said her team ran a good race but it did not go her way. Jefferies said she was unsure of the deciding issue. “It may have come down to the bike lanes,” said Jefferies, also a third-term councillor. “It may have come down to looking like I was the one who was going to take our city more forward and perhaps invest in it and spend a little more money. That may have been the issue but it’s really hard to say.” Jefferies said she is not worried about what is next for her. She has spent 18 years in public office, serving on Red Deer city council since 2004 and for nine years on Red Deer Public School District board before that. “I have a list a mile long of projects that I would like to work on,” said Jefferies. “I’m going to sit down over the next little bit and maybe take a holiday.”

Incumbents dominate at the polls LEE, JOHNSTON AND HANDLEY BREAK THROUGH BY SUSAN ZIELINSKI ADVOCATE STAFF Red Deerians clung tightly to all five council incumbents in Monday’s civic election. Dianne Wyntjes, Buck Buchanan, Lynne Mulder, Frank Wong and Paul Harris were all re-elected to Red Deer city council. That left three seats open to new candidates Lawrence Lee, Ken Johnston and Tanya Handley. Wyntjes received the most votes with 9,840, followed by Buchanan

LOTTERIES

RED DEER CITY COUNCIL guys.” Red Deer First launched their campaign early and was the first of its kind in a Red Deer municipal election. The six candidates shared the same principles of fiscal responsibility, transparency and accountability, economic development, safer streets and quality of life. Red Deer First member Handley said campaigning as team was unique and helped her win. “The way I campaigned was a little different than 24 of the candidates. I had a great team behind me. Lots of help with sign repair and campaigning,” Handley said. But it was still a surprise to win, she said.

Dennis Moffat, the oldest candidate at 80, and a former councillor, did not get elected but took the ninth position with 5,437 votes. Buchanan said voters were probably overwhelmed with the record slate of 30 candidates and had a fear of the unknown. “I think there was a certain amount of angst in regards to some the Red Deer First people. I think there was this, ‘We don’t want this because we just don’t know about it,’ ” said Buchanan, a second-term councillor. “I think that helped the incumbents to a certain degree. We know these

“My head is spinning a little right now. I don’t know how much sleep I’ll get tonight.” She said joining the five incumbents will be an “interesting proposition.” “They definitely have a lot of experience. I certainly need to learn from them and work together as a group and collaborate.” Harris said he was a little bit nervous looking at who will make up the city council. “There seems to be a little bit of a divide between progressive people and people who are regressive. Now is going to have to be the time to build some consensus and make sure that we can articulate why things need to be done and how they’re going to help the city,” said Harris, who has been on council for two terms.

Shelby Herchak, 22, wiped away tears while an agreed statement of facts read into court said the boy’s injuries were consistent with a motor vehicle accident or a significant fall. “He has sustained severe injuries including a fractured skull and brain trauma. Surgery was attempted, but he was ultimately taken off life support and succumbed to the injuries,” Crown prosecutor Julie Morgan said as she recounted the facts. “The cause of death was blunt force trauma to the head and neck. Significant force was applied to the infant victim’s head — similar to forces in

a motor vehicle collision or a 10-foot fall, resulting in devastating, fatal injuries.” Herchak was originally charged with second-degree murder in the death of son Daniel on Aug. 9, 2010.

The infant had been admitted to Alberta Children’s Hospital. Court heard there were no witnesses to what happened, but Herchak’s mother and father were in the home at the time.

He was pleased fellow incumbents were re-elected and also excited to have new faces. Mulder, who will begin her third term on council, said she was also glad the incumbents were coming back along with some new blood. She said running against 30 candidates was not much different from running against 25 candidates in 2004, when she was first elected. It’s hard for the candidates to get to know each other when there are so many, which changes the flavour of the campaign, she said. “It was an interesting election. There was a lot more negativity, which I’m not used to,” Mulder said. Wyntjes said she was glad to see all the incumbents return. “We run individually as candidates, but now after the council is determined and sworn in, we have to come together to get the work done.” Lee said it was a daunting slate of candidates and voters had to decide if they really wanted to see a radical change on council. “I think people get a little nervous when they actually hit the polls. During the forums and the debates a lot of people were saying there needed to be change. I think it really sinks in after a while that the experience the present council had really means something.” Johnston said the incumbents have done well and voters trusted that team to continue to do well. “I look forward to some good debate, some good collaboration. I think really Red Deer has an incredible team going forward for the next four years,” Johnston said. Wong said it was tough with 30 candidates running for council and Red Deer could have benefited from a ward system. “But we’re a bit behind. We’re scared I guess. We don’t like change even though we say we embrace change,” said Wong, who has been on council since 2004. szielinski@reddeeradvocate.com

COMMENT

A4

TUESDAY, OCT. 22, 2013

A vote for Red Deer’s future Red Deerians have rejected the parsimonious approach to civic government. And they have opted for a mayor and a group of councillors who have proven skills and broad experience in running this city. So we can assume that the majority of citizens endorse the Red Deer we know: a city that delivers a broad range of quality services. And we can assume that most citizens expect the new council to approach the future in a similarly expansive way. (The results of Monday’s votes are clear; and if you chose not to vote, we can assume you either endorsed the status quo or you were too disinterested to do otherwise, so the rest of us looked after it for you.) Despite an undercurrent of dissatisfaction that ran through the campaign, the path mapped out over the course of the last nine years, under Mayor Morris Flewwelling and his council, has

OURVIEW JOHN STEWART resonated with voters. Putting six returning councillors back to work (one, Tara Veer, is now mayor; the other five incumbents are Lynne Mulder, Paul Harris, Dianne Wyntjes, Frank Wong and Buck Buchanan), and electing people with long track records of community service (Lawrence Lee and Ken Johnston) should ensure that Red Deer remains a progressive, dynamic city. And one that stays true to the principles entrenched over the last decade. Red Deer is a good place to live, and the people charged with forming its vision and guiding civic services toward that vision have, for the most part, got it right. But that doesn’t mean the voters, or council, should be smug or unmindful of the messages of discord we heard over the last few months as debate

raged about the future of Red Deer. Tanya Handley’s presence on the new council is a clear signal, if muted (she is the only Red Deer First candidate to be elected). We cannot forget what inspired many of the record number of candidates to run in this election: a frustration with the nature of decision making, a feeling that too little information is shared, and a firmly held belief that council has not always spent our money carefully. For many critics, the bike lane fiasco is the ultimate example of a council with a sometimes weak grasp on what its constituents want. Even if it was a decision made with the best of intentions — and it was — it failed on too many levels. The critics seethed about cost, breadth, consultation (or lack thereof) and cumbersome implementation, to name a few. It is up to Veer and her council to make sure they learned well from the criticism, and from the failure of the

bike lane pilot project. It is up to the rest of us to stay plugged in to the process of civic governance, so proposals that teeter can be tossed or reformed before they become a costly reality. In part, that means council must do a better job of keeping us informed. It also means council must do a better job of tuning in to public concerns. This group should have a short learning curve, given their collective experience. And they then can quickly get on with the business of enriching our lives. Red Deerians have elected a council that reflects a broad view of what it takes to maintain a livable city. (It’s also, over the longer term, the more costly choice.) But we can be excited that we have chosen to continue to build on our strengths, rather than to retrench or retreat. John Stewart is the Advocate’s managing editor.

Advocate letters policy The Advocate welcomes letters on public issues from readers. Letters must be signed with the writer’s first and last name, plus address and phone number. Pen names may not be used. Letters will be published with the writer’s name. Addresses and phone numbers won’t be published. Letters should be brief and deal with a single topic; try to keep them under 300 words. The Advocate will not interfere with the free expression of opinion on public issues submitted by readers, but reserves the right to refuse publication and to edit all letters for public interest, length, clarity, legality, personal abuse or good taste. The Advocate will not publish statements that indicate unlawful discrimination or intent to discriminate against a person or class of persons, or are likely to expose people to hatred or contempt because of race, colour, religious beliefs, physical disability, mental disability, age, ancestry, place of origin, source of income, marital status, family status or sexual orientation. To ensure that single issues and select authors do not dominate Letters to the Editor, no author will be published more than once a month except in extraordinary circumstances.

You can’t dictate what knowledge is valuable Of the guest columnists in the Comment section of the Advocate, a byline I particularly like to follow is that of Gwyn Morgan. He’s an Albertan who has achieved business success and his opinions are a healthy mix of practical business and social studies. But his article on Monday, When skills, jobs at odds, stands as a good example of why business leaders can create rather poor public policy. Morgan believes so strongly in the correctness of a skills model for higher education that he sets aside his belief in freedom of choice. He also attempts to dictate the roles of our colleges and universities. And while doing so, he just adds more rotation GREG to a failed practice of profesNEIMAN sional associations chasing their tails. You can’t dictate what kind of learning is good and what kind is useless, and then wonder why the university graduates who listened to you can’t find jobs in their field of study. Alberta seems to cycle through oversupply and shortage of all kinds of professional skills, like the rotation of an oilsands bucket wheel. If borrowing $30,000 (plus savings and summer employment earnings) for a basic degree is a good investment, Morgan points to a CIBC study that says tacking on another $25,000 or more for an advanced degree is even better. But the CIBC statisticians (and Morgan) might have done better to poll the grads themselves. Doctor shortage? Not any more. As of 2010, Canada had 70,000 working physicians. That was 203 per 100,000 people, up 35 per cent since we recognized

the shortage in 1980. New physicians, graduating with enormous debt, can’t make student loan payments, house payments and set up a practice on a new physician’s salary. So they are going back to school for the specialties that pay better — and then find they can’t find a clinic that will take them on and they’re back in general practice. Alberta has a high proportion of nurses with science degrees. But barely more than 30 per cent of our nurses have a full-time job (it’s over 60 per cent for the rest of Canada). Monday’s Advocate actually had an ad for full-time nursing positions. How many new grads will even have their applications read for those gems? Not many, if any, I suspect. In the skills that Morgan cherishes, engineers are finding long waits to land an engineering job. Twothirds of our graduating engineers end up working in a field outside of engineering, almost 30 per cent of them in “survival jobs,” according to the Council for Access to the Profession of Engineering. How many lawyers are too many in a society? The answer, it seems, is about the number we have right now. The hunt for unpaid articling positions is extremely competitive, and the prospects for young lawyers to move up the ladder in their firms is not great. But we graduate more and more each year. These are in the professions that restrict the number of students who can enter, but the demand for entry is way beyond what the professions can bear. Alberta has one school for dental hygienists. At the University of Alberta, entrants must first complete one year of a regular university program, and they only take about 40 new students a year. So what happens? An 18-month program in Ottawa is 70 per cent Alberta students. You can’t tell students which careers they should pursue, and you can’t tell universities where they should be putting all their resources.

The CIBC report rather snorted about the practicality of a degree in medieval history. Morgan suggests that humanities classes with only 10 students ought to be cut outright. But a more rational approach says they should be kept — or even expanded. For most students, these are not their core programs; they are options that students in science, arts, and education can take to round out their studies, to develop a rational world view. That’s what makes a university degree different than a tech school diploma. A technician monitoring the readouts at a gas plant will make more money than a new lawyer, teacher and perhaps even a new doctor. So will a welder with experience and a willingness to work long shift rotations far from home. That’s the money market. The knowledge market runs on different parameters. Life is more than just gaining the biggest possible paycheque. Morgan claims that our ivory towers are graduating students without “foundation knowledge” as he puts it, while expecting businesses to fill the gaps. That’s backwards thinking, in my view. The “foundation knowledge” is taught in the programs Morgan says have no value. The middle way, it seems, lies in programs like Red Deer College’s Donald School of Business, in apprenticeship and trades programs — alongside the humanities. Besides, decades of pushing the professions is resulting in decades of indentured labour from highlyqualified people who can’t find jobs to match their training. But if you try to dictate through control of the budget process which programs are useful and which are not, you will only end up chasing your tail. Greg Neiman is a retired Advocate editor.

BRIEFS Duffy lawyer breaks silence

BY THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA — Mike Duffy once promised his side of the story on his dealings with the Prime Minister’s Office and the $90,000 payment of contested expenses. On Monday, his lawyer helped break the senator’s silence with what he called “the tip of the iceberg” of evidence. Donald Bayne spent nearly an hour alleging how Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s staff and key Conservative senators developed a scheme to have Duffy take the fall for wrongdoing that even they agreed he had not committed. Harper, meanwhile, continued to lay blame for the matter Monday on a single person — his former chief of staff Nigel Wright. “The whole political decisionmaking about this has been a fiasco,” Bayne told reporters. Duffy is facing the threat of suspension without pay from the upper chamber for “gross negligence” in the management of resources, along with colleagues Pamela Wallin and Patrick Brazeau. Conservative motions are expected to be introduced today.

OTTAWA — A large survey of science professionals in the federal public service has found that almost 25 per cent of respondents say they have been directly asked to exclude or alter information for “non-scientific reasons.” Some 71 per cent of those surveyed said political interference is compromising policy development based on scientific evidence, and almost half of those who took part said they were aware of cases in which their department or agency suppressed information. The study, entitled “The Big Chill,” was commissioned by the Professional Institute of the Public Service of Canada, and paints a disturbing picture of government scientists who feel they are being muzzled. More than 4,000 federal scientists — out of more than 15,000 who were invited —responded to the union-commissioned, online survey handled by the polling firm Environics. “A chill has settled on federal gov-

THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA — The federal Public Safety Department is worried about the emergence of three-dimensional printers that can easily manufacture guns without any kind of licensing control. The department is commissioning a study that will look at the advent of 3D technology and the feasibility of crafting firearms, gun parts and ammunition. It is also interested in possible technological solutions that could be applied to such printers to prevent them from making guns. In May, the U.S. government made headlines when it ordered a Texasbased website to remove blueprints for using a 3D printer to manufacture a handgun. Files for the “Liberator” gun were quickly downloaded more than 100,000 times, prompting concern in Washington and state capitals, the Public Safety Department notes. The possibility of cheaply produced firearms has also stirred concern in Europe. Aside from the fact the newfangled printers could allow someone to make a weapon in their basement, the fact the guns can be constructed from non-traditional materials, such as plastic, have sparked fears they could slip through airport security checkpoints undetected. The Public Safety Department recently issued a call for a contractor to carry out a study on the budding phenomenon. The notice points out that legal possession of a firearm in Canada requires a licence and, in the case of handguns and other restricted guns, a registration certificate. In addition, a firearms business licence is needed to manufacture a gun. While 3D printers have been around for some time, their price has dropped to between $1,500 and $5,000, making them more accessible. The machines rely on computer software to fashion everything from airplane parts to human bones, all to exacting specifications. “The emergence of 3D printing could transform manufacturing of firearms such that firearms could be more easily made by individuals and groups,” the notice says.

Ambrose made the comments as U.S. Senate confirmation hearings loom for Gil Kerlikowske, President Barack Obama’s pick to take over the powerful Customs and Border Protection agency. As head of the White House’s Office of National Drug Control Policy, Kerlikowske has spent years trying to curtail what he’s described as a prescription drug abuse “epidemic” in the United States. The United States is hardly on its own grappling with the problem — in 2010, for the first time, Canada inched past the U.S. to become the highest opioid-consuming country, per capita, on the planet.

Corporate spending jump forecast ON SIGNS OF IMPROVED U.S. ECONOMY: CIBC BY THE CANADIAN PRESS TORONTO — Spending by Corporate Canada is expected to ramp up in 2014 as global economies, particularly the U.S., continue to show signs of improvement, says a report by CIBC Economics. The study released Monday by economist Benjamin Tal says Canadian companies are holding onto a near-record amount of cash, an estimated $5.7 trillion, yet have been reluctant to invest in capital projects due to economic uncertainty. But as some of the world’s

largest economies show clear signs of strength, these firms will be more willing to spend that money in 2014. “Recently, business in Canada has had the ability to step up capital investment but a lack of growth in the domestic and international economies provided little incentive to do so,” wrote Tal, the deputy chief economist at CIBC World Markets. “While it is widely expected that stronger growth in the US next year will have an upside benefit for Canada, what might surprise many is how quickly and significantly Corporate Canada will ramp up spending to capitalize on the

long awaited rebound in global demand.” He said the bank’s Composite Indicator of Corporate Canada’s Strength is at an all-time high, and nearly a full point above its long-term average. The index uses nine factors to measure Canadian businesses including return-on-equity, business confidence, and cash-to-credit ratios. “Given the highly elevated level of our index, the ability of Canadian corporations to respond to improving U.S. demand has never been better,” said Tal. The bank estimates the U.S. economy will expand by 3.2 per cent next year, more than

more impressive when the mighty energy sector is excluded,” he wrote. The study also pointed to a current record-low number of bankruptcies in Canada as another indicator that businesses will be more willing to spend reserve cash. It noted that 3,150 companies declared bankruptcy in the 12-month period ending June 2013, a drop of eight per cent from a year earlier. Despite this, the study says other factors, such as downward trend in profit margins for Canadian businesses, may discourage some.

double the projected pace in 2013. While China is forecast to grow by four per cent, compared with three per cent this year. Tal says historically, growth in the U.S. leads to more capital spending in Canada. On average, one per cent of growth south of the border translates into a three per cent change in capital expenditures by Corporate Canada, according to the study. This change could also be seen across a majority of sectors. “In fact, improvement in key measures such as cash position and profit margin in recent years actually appears

Red Deer still ranked as one of top entrepreneurial cities Agricultural FEDERATION OF INDEPENDENT BUSINESS RANKING groups thrilled CANADA-EU TRADE DEAL

BY HARLEY RICHARDS ADVOCATE BUSINESS EDITOR Red Deer continues to distinguish itself as an entrepreneurfriendly city — at least as far as the number-crunchers at the Canadian Federation of Independent Business are concerned. The national business advocacy group has ranked Red Deer as one of the top entrepreneurial cities in Canada: fourth out of 107 urban centres considered, and second among those with populations between 25,000 and 149,000. Red Deer’s overall placement was an improvement from its sixth-place showing last year. In 2011 and 2010 the city was seventh on the CFIB list, and in 2009 it was 32nd. Topping this year’s rankings, called Communities in Boom: Canada’s Top Entrepreneurial Cities, is a compilation of Calgaryarea communities: Airdrie, Rocky View County, Cochrane and Chestermere. In second place is Lloydminster, followed by Saskatoon, Sask.; Red Deer and Leamington, Ont. Grande Prairie is sixth, with a group of communities around Toronto placing seventh. Rivière-du-Loup, Que. is eighth, the Edmonton-area communities of Strathcona County, St. Albert, Parkland, Spruce Grove and Leduc combined for ninth spot, and Rouyn-Noranda, Que. is 10th. The city of Edmonton is 17th, while the city of Calgary is further down the list at 48th. The other Alberta communities ranked are the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo (15th), Lethbridge (30th) and Medicine Hat (35th). John Sennema, manager of Red Deer’s Land and Economic Development Department, said he’s happy with the city’s strong showing in Communities in Boom. Such recognition boosts Red Deer’s image with prospective investors, he said. “We’re getting more and more calls from different folks out of province who want to come and set up shop here,” said Sennema, adding that favourable showings in rankings like CFIB’s probably play a role. How the city scores in the different criteria used by the CFIB in determining its rankings can also help identify areas where improvements might be needed, he said.

John Sennema, Red Deer’s Land and Economic Development manager, in front of City Hall on Monday. The Canadian Federation of Independent Business has ranked Red Deer as the fourth most entrepreneurial city out of 107 across Canada. Those criteria, which number 14, are lumped into three broad categories: presence, perspective and policy. Presence refers to the scale and growth of business ownership, and industrial diversity; perspective to optimism and plans for growth; and policy to the influence of local government through actions like taxation and regulation. The CFIB considered Red Deer’s scores to be “very strong” in the policy and perspective cat-

egories, and “moderate” when it came to presence. In the case of policy, Sennema said the city has been working hard to create a business-friendly environment. “When I talk to my coworkers and our other managers, we are trying to facilitate business,” he said. “There’s no doubt about that in my mind. It’s kind of nice to get that validation.”

Agricultural producer groups are bubbling with enthusiasm following the announcement on Friday that Canada and the European Union have reached an agreement in principle on liberalized trade. The Canadian Cattlemen’s Association and Alberta Pork both used the term “extremely pleased” in releases describing their reaction to the tentative deal, with the CCA going a step further and calling the development a “gamechanger.” Such enthusiasm may be justified in the case of Canada’s red meat industry, where producers have in the past struggled to remain viable. The Canada-EU Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) is expected to boost Canada’s annual beef exports to Europe by $600 million, and pork sales by $400 million. The value of grains and oilseeds exports has been calculated at $200 million. “It’s a very positive deal,” said Doug Sawyer, a Pine Lake-area cowcalf producer who chairs Alberta Beef Producers. “It’s a mature market with lots of money.” Sawyer said he’s happy with the increased volumes of Canadian beef that can be exported to the EU under the deal. “I wasn’t sure we’d get quite this much quota.” But he’s also pleased that the agreement commits to addressing “technical barriers” that have hindered meat exports to Europe in the past. “You can have all of the quota in the world,

but if there are difficult technical barriers, then you just can’t get access to it. “What’s really positive about this deal is they’ve committed to have the technical barriers completed within 12 months. That tells me that they’ve probably done a lot of work on it beforehand.”

VOTE UNLIKELY A8 Canadian producers and processors will have to comply with European production requirements, but Sawyer is confident this will happen. “I think as an industry we’re poised to meet those. If the money is there, we’re ready to go.” Although the United States is currently negotiating its own trade agreement with the EU, Sawyer said Canada has gained a big advantage by striking a deal first. Other producer associations that have come out in support of the CETA agreement include the Canadian Canola Growers Association, Alberta Barley, the Alberta Wheat Commission and Pulse Canada. The National Farmers Union has taken the opposite stance, calling the agreement “disastrous for our economic sovereignty.” Also upset is the Dairy Farmers of Canada, mainly because the proposed deal increases European cheese producers’ access to Canada. Patrick Bos, whose Ponoka-area Rock Ridge Dairy Ltd. produces cheese from goat milk, said he isn’t sure how his operation will be impacted, because it serves a local market. “I think it’s going to affect the big players more than the small guys, but I’m not sure.” hrichards@reddeeradvocate.com

Trade deal to help Canadian ports but won’t reverse trade to Asia BY THE CANADIAN PRESS Canada’s new trade deal with the EU will eventually help eastern ports expand their business with Europe but won’t reverse what has been a momentum swing to Asia, experts said Monday. Port of Halifax CEO Karen Oldfield said the recently negotiated Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement will “jet propel” existing trade with Europe without undercutting trade with other global regions. “I don’t think it will shift the pendulum back necessarily,” she said in an interview. “I think it will just grow the pie to an even bigger pie.” European trade represented 38 per cent of the east coast port’s business last year, the second-largest destination behind Asia and triple the activity with Latin America and the Caribbean. More than 416,000 containers passed through the

TSX:V 959.82 + 8.85

port in 2012, of which 52 per cent were exports. The port’s top five exports are newsprint and paper, wood pulp, manufactured goods, seafood and vegetables. She said reducing and eliminating tariffs on many products will grow European exports, helping companies that sell products including locomotive engines, automotive parts, seafood, minerals and soy beans. Oldfield points to $115 billion worth of largescale capital projects such as an underground mine in Voisey’s Bay, NL, and P.E.I. soybeans. “It will make it much more advantageous for Canadian companies to be looking at Europe versus say what many Canadian companies do today, which is just look south of the border, exporting into the United States.” North America’s closest deep water port to Europe has all the infrastructure in place but Oldfield said Canadian officials will have to work on trade missions to educate the European public about the

agreement. The Port of Montreal is also positive about the trade deal but spokeswoman Sophie Roux said the benefits of the new pact would not be realized overnight. Northern Europe accounts for nearly 47 per cent of the 1.4 million carloads shipped through the port annually, followed by 19 per cent for the Mediterranean and 13.7 per cent for Asia. The port expects to reach full capacity by 2020 and may further expand on land it owns in Contrecoeur, Que., northeast of its current facilities in Montreal. As the second-largest container port in Canada and leading port in the east, Roux said the Port of Montreal should maintain its competitive advantage over rivals. “We’re really the longest way to come in by water but it’s most economical and then it’s the shortest route by train to reach the Midwest. “So I think we would conserve our competitive edge,” she said in an interview.

The S&P/TSX composite index rose 50.44 points to 13,186.53. The rise followed a jump of almost two per cent last week, and leaves the TSX up about six per cent year to date. Maple Leaf Foods (TSX:MFI) is looking at the possibility of selling its bakery business, which includes a 90 per cent interest in Canada Bread (TSX:CBY), maker of Dempster’s and other brands. Based on recent stock market values, Canada Bread had a value of about $1.6 billion prior to the announcement Monday. Maple Leaf shares jumped $1.33, or 10.45 per cent, to $14.63, while Canada Bread shares surged $4.92, or 8.03 per cent, to $66.17. The Canadian dollar was down 0.06 of a cent to 97.08 cents US two days before the Bank of Canada’s next interest rate announcement. U.S. indexes were mixed as investors looked to a heavy week of earnings data and economic reports that were held up because of the partial U.S. government shutdown that dragged on until late last week. The Dow Jones industrials declined 7.45 points to 15,392.2, the Nasdaq gained 5.77 points to 3,920.05 and the S&P 500 index added 0.16 of a point to 1,744.66. The major economic report of the week is the U.S. government’s employment report for September. That’s due on Tuesday and could provide investors with an indication as to when the Fed will start reducing its US$85 billion worth of monthly asset purchases. On the earnings front, McDonald’s earned $1.52 billion, or $1.52 per share, in the latest quarter, which was a cent better than forecast. But its revenue increase of two per cent to $7.32 billion missed expectations of $7.33 billion and its shares were down 61 cents to US$94.59.

After the close, Netflix reported third-quarter earnings per share of 52 cents, three cents better than estimates. It also beat on revenue and its shares jumped seven per cent in after hours trading in New York. The gold sector led TSX advancers, up about 2.5 per cent while December bullion rose $1.20 to US$1,315.80 an ounce. Barrick Gold Corp. (TSX:ABX) rose 46 cents to C$19.53. The base metals sector rose 1.36 per cent as December copper lost early momentum and was unchanged at US$3.30 a pound. HudBay Minerals (TSX:HBM) was ahead 24 cents at C$8.52. Financials also provided lift with CIBC (TSX:CM) ahead $1.37 to $85.35. The industrials sector gained 0.46 per cent and Bombardier (TSX:BBD.B) shares closed at a 52-week high after it said Flexjet has placed firm orders for 30 more of it Learjet 85 aircraft. Bombardier shares rose 22 cents, or 4.33 per cent, to $5.30. Techs led decliners as BlackBerry (TSX:BB) shed 12 cents to $8.52. The November crude contract on the New York Mercantile Exchange fell $1.59 to US$99.22 a barrel — its lowest level since July 1 — amid rising supplies of crude and lower demand. The energy sector declined 0.28 per cent and Canadian Natural Resources (TSX:CNQ) gave back 39 cents to $33.39. It is also a heavy earnings week for Canadian companies, particularly those in the resource sector and with companies related to that group, including the country’s two big railways. Canadian National Railways (TSX:CNR) posts earnings Tuesday and Canadian Pacific Railway (TSX:CP) reports on Wednesday and both are expected to show rising revenues from greater shipments of crude oil.

Halliburton 3Q profit rises, tops estimates BUT REVENUE MISSES WALL STREET’S VIEW BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS DALLAS — Halliburton Co. boosted third-quarter net income by 17 per cent on strong revenue from its international operations, which offset sluggish growth in North America. Halliburton helps energy producers drill for oil and gas, and it’s still seeing too much capacity for pressurepumping services in North America as oilfield-service companies fight for a bigger share of the shale oil and gas boom. That’s driving down prices for contractors like Halliburton. “We anticipate pricing pressure will continue as contracts renew during the next quarter or so,” Chairman and CEO Dave Lesar said on a conference call with analysts. “Accordingly, we are already working on adjusting our cost structure,” which he said would include job reductions. Company officials told analysts that as they learn to operate more efficiently, they found they had too many people for the available work. That doesn’t foreshadow a longer slowdown in the business, they said, and they didn’t give job-cut figures. Halliburton took $38 million to cover severance payments and write down

asset values in the quarter. Houston-based Halliburton also said operations in Colorado continued to be affected by last month’s flooding. The stock fell $1.10, or 2.1 per cent, to $51.37 in midday trading. The shares began the day up 51 per cent in 2013. For the three months ended Sept. 30, the Houston-based company earned $706 million, or 79 cents per share. Its earnings were $707 million excluding discontinued operations. A year earlier it earned $602 million, or 65 cents per share. Revenue rose 5 per cent to $7.47 billion, led by improvement in international operations including Russia, the North Sea and Angola. In North America, the company’s largest region, revenue declined 2 per cent as the U.S. land rig count was flat and there was — according to Halliburton — about 20 per cent too much service capacity. Total revenue was below Wall Street’s consensus forecast of $7.50 billion. The company expects profit margins to improve in North America next year as activity expands in the Gulf of Mexico and Halliburton benefits from initiatives that it calls “Battle Red” and “Frac of the Future” — the latter is a reference to hydraulic fracturing or “fracking.”

BlackBerry says BBM app is ready for iPhone, Android devices THE CANADIAN PRESS WATERLOO, Ont. — BlackBerry says its popular instant messaging service is now ready for Apple’s iPhone and devices using the Android operating system, following a technical glitch that delayed the launch by about a month. Andrew Bocking, head of BBM operations, said in a BlackBerry blog post on Monday that BlackBerry Messenger would be available for free starting Monday on Apple, Google and select

Samsung app stores. “The demand for BBM on Android and BBM on iPhone continues to be amazing,” Booking said. In September, an unreleased version of the BBM software for Android was posted online, causing technical conflicts with the official version the company had prepared for release, BlackBerry said at that time. BlackBerry (TSX:BB) decided to yank the BBM app while its programmers worked to solve the problem. The BBM instant mes-

saging service has been a popular feature for Blackberry users because it allows real-time text messages on a secure server, but doesn’t require a customer to purchase an SMS text package from their wireless carrier. BlackBerry has said it wants to turn BBM into a revenue generator for the company through advertising partnerships. Shares of the company closed down 12 cents at $8.52 on the Toronto Stock Exchange on Monday.

Canadians unlikely to get vote, says Ottawa TRADE DEAL WITH EU

OTTAWA — Canadians will soon get a chance to view the text of the recently announced trade deal with the European Union, but aren’t likely to have an opportunity to pronounce final judgment in an election campaign. Conservative ministers began the sales-pitch phase of the new Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement at a news conference Monday, announcing a series of cross-country events to demonstrate the benefits of the deal. But it was unclear just how much input ordinary Canadians who are not part of stakeholder organizations will be able to provide, or whether they will be given a formal avenue to express their views. NDP trade critic Don Davies said what the government is planning at the moment is not nearly sufficient, given the boast that the EU deal is arguably the biggest Canada has negotiated — more sweeping than free trade with the U.S. or NAFTA — at least in terms of influence, if not direct impact on the economy. “Canadians have a right to be consulted in a meaningful way ... and in

a way that allows us to inject some of that input into the agreement,” said Davies. “This is part of their behindclosed doors, secretive, let-insidershave-input approach to trade.” The NDP has reserved final judgment on the deal until they see the final text, something that may not be available for several months. Earlier Monday, Trade Minister Ed Fast and Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird said the deal has wide support, including from the provinces, and brushed aside questions of whether the government would wait to ratify the deal until after the next election. Canadians got a chance to vote in a general election before ratification of the country’s two previous big trade accords — the deal with the U.S. in 1988 and NAFTA in 1993. “During the last election we made it very clear what our government’s trade agenda was going to be ... Canadians knew when they voted (for the Conservatives) we would be moving forward to implement this trade agreement,” said Fast. He said legislation would be tabled

When those changes

were applied to the 2012 data, Red Deer’s ranking for that year slipped from sixth to eighth — making its 2013 placement even more impressive. Richard Truscott, the business organization’s Alberta director, said he was pleased to see Alberta communities rank high relative to the rest of the country. “These cities continue to be relatively good entrepreneurial hot spots,” he said. “But it also means there’s still plenty of work to be done by all city governments in Alberta. A stronger focus on developing small business-friendly policies would surely improve their rankings even further.” The CFIB represents more than 109,000 small and medium-sized businesses across Canada. hrichards@reddeeradvocate.com

Ward system rejected PLEBISCITE: 72% OF RED DEER VOTERS PREFER CURRENT AT-LARGE SYSTEM BY MURRAY CRAWFORD ADVOCATE STAFF Red Deer voters have decisively rejected switching to a ward system, with 71.7 per cent of plebiscite respondents preferring to maintain an at-large voting system. With 46 of 46 polls reported on Monday evening, 13,314 voted against a ward system; 5,240 voted for it. The ballot question, part of the municipal election, asked voters if they wanted to divide the city into wards or to maintain the status quo and keep the at-large voting system, which allows voters to select up to eight councillors. City Coun. Frank Wong was one of the three councillors who brought the question forward, Chris Stephan and Buck Buchanan were the other two. “We keep bragging we embrace change,” said Wong. “We actually are chicken, we don’t embrace change. “We’re not very progressive.” He pointed to numerous Ontario cities smaller than Red Deer that have ward systems and Brandon, Man. Frustrated by the result, Wong wasn’t sure if

there was much point in pursuing wards going forward. Coun. Lynne Mulder voted against including the plebiscite on the ballot. “I’m not against the ward system, but I don’t think we’re there yet,” said Mulder. “I don’t think we’re a big enough city. “I would hate to see us lose focus on the larger vision and become focused on potholes in each little ward.” Although she was happy with the outcome, she said the debate hasn’t ended yet, saying it could resurface as an issue eight years from now during another election year. “It never will be, because as we get larger we will need a ward system,” said Mulder. “It won’t be the end of it.” The ballot question almost never happened as council initially rejected putting it on the ballot six to three. Garfield Marks started a petition to include the question and started a group, Let us Vote, aimed at including the ward question on the ballot. He said the group succeeded in that people were given the option to vote on the topic.

“They said it was too complicated an issue for the public,” said Marks. “I think the numbers show that it’s not too complicated.” Even though the ward system was rejected, he said the purpose of voting on the issue was to show the public needs to be involved. It shows we shouldn’t leave the public out when they make these big decisions.” During the campaign, Dave Cournoyer, a political observer and blogger, spoke at a forum about the pros and cons of a ward system. He said numerous jurisdictions in Alberta have wards, citing counties, the regional municipality of Wood Buffalo as well as Calgary and Edmonton. “There is no perfect answer and there is no perfect system,” said Cournoyer. “The ward system allows residents to have their own individual representative. “Is Red Deer at the point where it needs to move to a ward system? It is a city verging on 100,000 people and the population is only going to continue to grow. It’s something Red Deerians just aren’t ready for at this point, but maybe they’ll be having this discussion later on.” mcrawford@reddeeradvocate.com

McIntyre scores upset in Sylvan

Familiar faces control board BY RENÉE FRANCOEUR ADVOCATE STAFF

BY PAUL COWLEY ADVOCATE STAFF A former Sylvan Lake councillor, Sean McIntyre, rode a tidal wave of support to the mayor’s seat in a major upset victory in Monday’s municipal election. McIntyre picked up 1,966 votes to incumbent mayor Susan Samson’s 678. Political newcomer Melesa Starcheski was a distant third with 99 votes. McIntyre, who was first elected as a councillor in 2010, is a lifetime resident and well-known local volunteer and the co-ordinator of the community’s annual Shake the Lake festival. McIntyre said he was taken aback by his strong showing. “I was absolutely blown away. I didn’t expect anything nearly as decisive,” he said. “Job number one is going to be connecting with the new team on council and really discovering their strengths and putting those to work for the people of Sylvan Lake.” The biggest issue facing council will be to continue to push for an urgent care centre for the community. “We’ll be working very hard on advocating to the provincial government to see Sylvan Lake get the health care it deserves.” McIntyre also wants to see the town improve its communications with its own staff and residents. He recognized Samson for the amount of work she has done for the town. “Her commitment to urgent care and lake health have benefitted everyone in the community, and for that I’m grateful.” Incumbent mayors also lost in Bentley, where Joan Dickau was defeated by Lynda Haarstad-Petten, and in Sundre, where incumbent mayor Annette Clews lost decisively to Terry Leslie. In Lacombe, incumbent Mayor Steve Christie held off a strong challenge from former councillor Grant Creasey to hold onto his seat by a count of 1,662 votes to 1,599. Christie said the close result “definitely doesn’t play into the hand of complacency. It shows we’ve got some work to do and get fired up and ready to go.” Council said the town had some real momentum building prior to the election with the coming development of a new commercial area on the east side of Hwy 2A. The town is also developing industrial lots to help boost the tax base and more residential developments are planned. He wants to see council keep that momentum going. Creasey said he and his team waged a “valiant but disappointing” battle, but he is already thinking about four years down the road when the next municipal elections will be held. “I’m certainly not going anywhere,” said the long-time local resident and owner of two businesses. Olds Mayor Judy Dahl handily won her seat with 1,366. Art Baker followed with 450 votes and Shirley Schultz had 42. In Penhold, Dennis Cooper was reelected as mayor and the woman he defeated for the seat in the last election, Julia King, won a seat on council. The community saw a big change on

With the addition of King, council has a mix of experience and newcomers. All of the new council members have been out listening to the community and he expects the next four years will be an energetic time for Penhold. In Blackfalds, there was a rematch from the last election with Mayor Melodie Stol facing off against former mayor Wayne Tutty. Stol won handily with 519 votes to 250. The entire six-member council was acclaimed. In the Town of Ponoka it was a nail-

biter to the end with Rick Bonnett taking the unofficial count by a single vote 960 to 959 over Doug Gill. A recount is almost a guarantee in the town, whose long-time mayor Larry Henkelman chose not to run again. In Rocky Mountain House, Mayor Fred Nash held on to his seat in the face of challenges from former mayor Jim Bague and Sheila Mizera. Eckville Mayor Helen Posti, who has held the job since 1991, was once again given the seal of approval by her community for another four years. Acclaimed in 2010, Posti defeated challenger Laurie Phillips. pcowley@reddeeradvocate.com

One fresh but also familiar face will be sitting at the Red Deer Public School District board meetings after Monday night’s trustee race. Jim Watters, who served as a public school trustee from 1998 to 2010, was voted back in after a three-year hiatus with a total of 4,943 votes. “It’s emotional. I’m humbled and grateful,” Watters, 58, said. “I look at my past record and I’ve worked hard and I plan to keep doing that. That’s what I told the people. I’ve walked the talk and I’ll continue that for the voters that gave me this opportunity.” All of the incumbents were re-elected with the exception of Lawrence Lee, who ran for and won a spot on city council. Red Deer College instructor Bill Stuebing is taking on his seventh term as trustee, after winning 6,759 votes, along with colleague Bev Manning, the former vice-chair, who came in second place with 6,754 votes. “I’m real happy with the results and looking forward to working with the board,” Stuebing, 69, said. “We’ll have an organizational meeting at end of the month and then we’ve just got to hit the ground running. The issues haven’t gone away because of the election.” Manning, 56, said she felt the community had spoken and approves of the direction the board has been heading. “I think we really need to work at strong community involvement now and see if we can find more and better ways of communicating to work together. That’s one of my top priorities,” said Manning, a graphic designer. Bill Christie, 66, came in third with 5,833 votes. He said he was feeling happy and relieved as the final results were announced at the Golden Circle. Christie was followed by Cathy Peacocke at 4,943 votes. Peacocke, 55, was first elected in 2007. This will be her third term. Dick Lemke, 70, was at home waiting for the final numbers and said he was pleased to hear he’d been reelected with 4,823 votes. This was his fourth time running for the board, having been elected in 2004 and again in 2010 after he narrowly missed out on a seat in 2007. Dianne Macaulay was also voted in for a fourth term with 4,849 votes. This was her sixth time running. “I’m feeling excited, nauseous and relieved. I’m grateful I’ve been given the opportunity again; it’s been kind of a hairy year for me and I was just not sure if I still had their support,” Macaulay, 45, said. “And I’m so proud of everyone who put their names forward and everyone who came out to vote — what awesome numbers.” Fourteen contenders were in the running for trustee, the largest list of candidates since 1995. Others in the running who didn’t make the cut were Lianne Kruger at 4,442, Shari Hanson at 3,811, Milt Williams at 3,587, Ben Ordman at 3,299, Kerri Kenworthy at 3,227, Raymond Yaworski at 2,553 and Kurt Spady at 2,314. New for the trustees this election, terms will be four years instead of the previous three. rfrancoeur@reddeeradvocate.com


A10 RED DEER ADVOCATE Tuesday, Oct. 22, 2013

Incumbents dominate Catholic board BY MYLES FISH ADVOCATE STAFF All of the incumbents running for re-election on the Red Deer Catholic Regional School Division board will be back for another four years, after a record number of ballots were cast for the board race on Monday. Incumbent board chair Adriana LaGrange topped the list of candidates again, with the 3,274 votes she received 1,000 more than she earned in 2010. Incumbent trustee Anne Marie Watson finished a close second with 3,168 votes received. In third was David Bouchard with 2,845 votes, while Guy Pelletier was fourth with 2,804 and newcomer Murray Hollman picked up the last spot with 2,056 votes. LaGrange, 52, said she was humbled by the support she received after a

“very positive” campaign that featured candidates who were well informed on the issues. The return of incumbents, she said, will allow the board to maintain an element of stability. “There’s quite a learning curve when you become a trustee for the first time, so I think the fact that the majority are incumbents I think will allow for us to hit the pavement running and we can catch Murray up to speed pretty quick,” said LaGrange. Watson, 45, was re-elected, moving up from fourth place in 2010 to second in 2013. She said she noticed a lot of interaction with the public during the campaign, and through that heard that the board can be more involved going forward. “The one issue that really hit home with me was engagement. Talking with some of our teachers, they would like to see trustees in the school more often and parents would like to see trust-

ees at school council more often,” said Watson. Bouchard, 60, got onto the board in 2010 by a mere 42 votes, but had no such trouble this time, finishing a comfortable third. Bouchard spent election night in Israel, where he has been on a mission trip for the last week. Fourth was Guy Pelletier, who was running as a one-term incumbent. The 47-year-old said that continuity will benefit the board as it works to get a new high school for Red Deer. He said the campaign laid bare the fact that the board needs to do a better job of engaging the people it represents. The new blood on the board is Hollman, who was the youngest candidate at 27. As he watched his lead over the sixth-placed candidate steadily grow throughout the night, he said he was nervous, “with an undertone of excitement” as it became clear he would

gain a seat. He said he learned a lot during the campaign and is ready to step in to work with the six re-elected trustees on issues of space and inclusion going forward. He takes the place of Elaine Halter, who did not seek re-election. First-time candidates Cory Litzenberger and Brandie Towers finished sixth and seventh, respectively. Litzenberger earned 1,809 votes while Towers got 1,585. Joining the five trustees on the board will be incumbents Diane MacKay and Liam McNiff, who were both acclaimed in their rural wards. MacKay represents the communities of Innisfail, Bowden, Olds and Didsbury, while McNiff’s ward includes Rocky Mountain House, Caroline, Eckville and Sylvan Lake. It will be MacKay’s third term and McNiff’s fourth. mfish@reddeeradvocate.com

ALBERTA ROUNDUP

Calgary embraces Nenshi IVESON TAKES OVER IN EDMONTON Photo by THE CANADIAN PRESS

BY THE CANADIAN PRESS

Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi celebrates his re-election as mayor at his campaign headquarters in Calgary. Nenshi rode a wave of popularity to a 74 per cent mandate.

It was a coronation in Calgary on Monday as wildly popular Mayor Naheed Nenshi handily won reelection. There was also a blowout in Edmonton, where former city councillor Don Iveson took over the top job from departing mayor Stephen Mandel. As voters across Alberta headed to the polls in the municipal elections, there seemed to be just one certainty — that the man who guided the province’s largest city through a devastating flood would be returned to office. From the minute election results started rolling in, it was apparent Nenshi would easily defeat former councillor Jon Lord and seven other hopefuls to win his second term. With 188 of 227 polls reporting, Nenshi had captured a whopping 74 per cent of the vote. The efforts of volunteers to help the city rebuild were uppermost in his mind as he took the podium at his election headquarters. “We were reminded of something this summer,” he told cheering supporters. “The extraordinary nature of the people who live in this place.” Nenshi became a national figure for his tireless efforts to rally Calgarians swamped by the deluge in June. He worked so hard and such long hours that at one point a Twitter campaign started up urging him

to get some sleep. Even without the flood, Nenshi is a near-constant presence on social media in the city, retweeting pleas to help find lost pets or passing along community event announcements. During his speech, he also made reference to a controversy that erupted when a secretly taped video surfaced showing a meeting of developers discussing a plan to defeat members of city council perceived to be anti-development. “Calgarians have spoken loud and clear about the kind of community they want,” he told supporters. “A community of great, livable, walkable neighbourhoods everywhere. Not a community of never-ending sprawl, not a community of subsidized development.” In Edmonton, Iveson also led from the moment results started coming in. The 34-year-old captured the imaginations of many voters with Kennedy-esque pleas for Edmonton to lead on an innovation agenda. “City-building is difficult work and the next four years aren’t going to be easy,” Iveson told supporters during his acceptance speech. “Nothing great is easy.” He stressed what he sees as a “new sense of op-

timism” and a “more confident swagger” in the city, but also paid tribute to his mentor, Mandel, who he credited for bringing Edmonton to a new level during his nine years in office. In Fort McMurray, Melissa Blake won her fourth consecutive term as mayor of the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo. She campaigned on improving and stabilizing the housing situation in the oilsands boomtown, along with bylaw changes to improve traffic flow and a new mega-development of stand-alone stores and retail outlets. Lethbridge welcomed Chris Spearman as the new mayor to replace incumbent Rajko Dodic, who did not seek re-election. Spearman championed green initiatives such as curbside recycling. One of the few upsets of the night came in Medicine Hat, where two-term incumbent Norm Boucher was defeated by veteran councilman Ted Clugston, who got more than 50 per cent of the votes. In Grande Prairie, incumbent Mayor Bill Given was also re-elected over local United Way president Gladys Blackmore. Following on provincial legislation changes, all municipal politicians will now serve four-year terms.

TUESDAY, OCT. 22, 2013 On Nov. 3, Hindus will celebrate one of their biggest religious holiday, Diwali, better known as the festival of lights. In India, this day is marked with bright lights, lighting of firecrackers, gift exchanges and a lot of sweets. The main sweet of the festivities is barfi, a sweet confection that because of its texture and appearance could be a close kin to fudge. Eaten and served in bite-sized pieces, barfi MADHU is a very popular sweet BADONI in India. Just like bringing a bottle of fine wine when you visit someone for the first time, a decorative box filled with different kinds of barfi is a traditional present taken as a hostess gift. y closely y associated with Because barfi is very many Indian festivals, it is quite c common to see Indian sweet shops both in India a and here overflowing with a huge varieties of them during many Indian celebrations. Barfi also plays an important importan role in worship and is offered to deities in te temples, where it is called prashad. Similarly, Similar it is quite common to include it in the plate of food that is first offered Laxmi — goddess godde of wealth, du during the Diw wali prayer. Although y you can purc chase barfi at IIndian sweet shop in Edmonton and Calg Calgary, there are some traditionalists who still sti stick to the old ritual of making it at home du during Diwali. My mom is one of those people. Growing up up, the build-up to Diwali began w when my mom started making her barfi. “If you are offering offer it to the gods, then you have tto ensure that it is pure and mad made with clean hands and soul,” was the rationale my mom used to exp explain why she made barfi in the ki kitchen instead of buying from the st store. I am glad she did because, like many things, the taste of store bou bought cannot rival the homemade. Every barfi maker has their own versions of the recipe. Tradi Traditionally, barfi was made with milk tha that was cooked slowly until the liquid was reduced to a fudge-like consistency. This milk m solid was then flavoured with either saffr saffron, vanilla essence, cardamom or rose water. Depending on type of barfi being prepared, cash cashews, almonds, pistachios or fresh coconut were a added. makin was patientThe tedious part of barfi making l waiting iti f the th liquid li id milk ilk to t be reduced to ly for soft, doughy mass. For this, the milk was cooked on medium heat and continually mixed to prevent the milk from burning; definitely not a job for the weak shouldered or the impatient cook. Waiting for the milk reduction alone was enough to deter some enthusiast from taking on the task of making barfi at home. Fortunately, the modernists have replaced the tedious task with similar textured and flavoured substitutes like paneer (Indian cheese), ricotta cheese, sweetened condensed milk or dry milk powder. By using one or combination of these, even the purist have a hard time distinguishing the milk reduction mass from its substitution. Like fudge, barfi comes in different varieties. Although plain, coconut and nut varieties have stood the test of time, there are selections of new flavours making waves. Pumpkin, mango and chocolate-based barfi, although traditionally not popular, are fast gaining more lovers. Unlike fudge, which is typically cut into small squares, barfi can come in log, diamond or even flower shapes. These pieces are sometimes decorated with edible silver foil, different colours or simply with nuts. I am including my mom’s barfi recipe that she has prepared for over 30 years and some others that are my favourites. Madhu Badoni is a Red Deer-based freelance food writer.

Carol Burnett awarded top comedy prize BY KATHERINE BOYLE ADVOCATE NEWS SERVICES

Britney Spears introduces Miley Cyrus at IHeartRadio Music Festival last month in Las Vegas. Her new album, Britney Jean, will be released on Dec. 3.

Britney Spears juggles being a ‘crazy mom’ with career as a sexy pop star BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LONDON — Britney Spears may take on a sexy pop star persona in the video for her latest single Work B---- , but at home she says she feels like a “crazy mom.” Speaking in London, the 31-year old singer says these days she juggles the demands of an international singing career with taking care of her two sons, Sean, eight, and seven-year-old Jayden. “Once you’ve done a shoot ... you have to come in and do homework and fix dinner twice and it’s a lot of work,” she told The Associated Press. “But I think as women we just manage it, we make it work.” Spears says she worked hard with her fitness trainer to get into top shape for her new video, stick-

ing to two or three small meals each day. The American singer admitted, however, that she struggled to stave off food cravings in the weeks leading up to the video shoot, saying: “I love to eat my popcorn at night!” And the first thing she ate afterward? “Just chocolate, chocolate, chocolate,” she said. Work B---- is the lead single from Spears’ eighth studio album Britney Jean — the name her family calls her — and she says it’s her most personal album to date. Produced with will.i.am, Spears co-wrote every track, including a song about her split with Jason Trawick in January. “’I think it will make girls not feel alone in this situation,” she explained. “When they’re alone in their

Ten years after she received the Kennedy Center Honors, Carol Burnett was back in Washington on Sunday, accepting the country’s top comedy award. And no, outraged masses, this isn’t the first time the Kennedy Center has tried to give her the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor. “They asked me quite a few times, but I could never work it out with my schedule,” Burnett said to reporters at the red carpet who all wondered why the first lady of variety had to wait 16 years to receive an award that seems Bob Mackie-tailored for her talents. Indeed, unreserved love and gratitude were on display Sunday night. Perhaps Tina Fey said it best when she crooned in her opening tribute to Burnett, “I love you in a way that is just shy of creepy.” “A lot of female comediennes are going to come out and say that ‘I love you so much,’ “ Fey said, “but I’m saying it first!” proved since the Beach She was right.

B1 Scaring up more garbage

TUESDAY, OCT. 22, 2013

SPOOKTACULAR EVENT AT WASTE MANAGEMENT FACILITY BY LANA MICHELIN ADVOCATE STAFF The Red Deer Waste Management Facility will provide some scary fun on Saturday during a Waste Reduction Day Spooktacular event. Local residents don’t have to be haunted by the amount of garbage that’s piling up in their yards, houses or garages — they can haul old batteries, fluorescent light bulbs, electronic and other hazardous waste to the landfill, say event organizers. Halloween candy, cookies and hot chocolate will be available at the first annual Spooktacular, which runs from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the City of Red Deer’s Waste Management Facility. Ballots for the chance to win an iPad will be handed out in exchange for the various waste that’s brought in. Up to six ballots per person will be given for the following: ● bringing in old batteries

● dropping off used compact fluorescent light bulbs ● bringing e-waste (computers, monitors, TVs) ● taking in household hazardous waste (old paint, chemical cleaners) ● dressing in costume ● and coming with a travel mug. “We really want to make this a fun event for families,” and at the same time create a learning opportunity to promote the three Rs: reduce, reuse and recycle, added Lauren Maris, environmental program specialist for the City of Red Deer. “We want people to understand the connection between the waste they produce and where it ends up.” Bus tours of the landfill are scheduled to run on the hour between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. The city’s waste management facility takes dropoffs of household hazardous wastes, recycling materials and electronics to keep these items out of the landfill. This is important because of the increasing amount of garbage that residents of

growing Red Deer produce. City statistics show that 1.6 million tonnes of garbage were buried in the old local landfill in the nearly three decades between 1972 and 2001, while more than 1.2 million tonnes of waste have already been packed into the new landfill since it opened in 2001. “The more people reduce their consumption, reuse items or give them away to others and recycle ... the more we can extend the life of our landfill,” said Janet Whitesell, waste management superintendent for the city. The city’s waste management facility already gives regular tours to Grade 4 students, as part of their curriculum. Maris said, “We thought maybe we should open our doors to everybody ... to see what kind of spooky (hazardous) items they can bring in!” For more information, call visit www. reddeer.ca/waste. lmichelin@reddeeradvocate.com

Longboarder’s dad finishes cross-Canada trek Brandon Harrison, 18, is still recovering in hospital from a stroke he suffered during his Long for Life longboarding trek across Canada, but that hasn’t stopped his father. Harrison’s father Michael Floyd made it to Victoria on Oct. 13, completing his son’s trip. But he didn’t put his board in the water, a symbolic gesture meant to show he is waiting for his son to finish the trip. Harrison’s trip was conceived to raise awareness and funds for research for cancer and heart and stroke. Harrison’s grandmother Roxanne Traubert, of Red Deer, said her grandson’s attitude is great, even though it is a long way

until he has a full recovery. “He’s confident, he knows he is going to be able to finish it,” said Traubert, adding this stroke is much worse than his first. “The first one affected his vision a little bit, it didn’t affect his mobility. This one paralyzed his left side, his face is OK, he has movement from the hip to his knee and not anything in his arm yet.” She said right now Harrison is learning to balance and walk in a limited capacity. Harrison has battled strokes and cancer throughout his life. He was diagnosed with cancer when he was two-and-a-half years old, given a 25 per cent chance to live with a fist-sized tumour

on his spine. After extensive treatment, he was declared cancer-free. Then at 15 he had his first stroke as AV malformations — purposeless blood vessels — in his brain burst. Two years ago, he had a mild stroke after a blood vessel burst. He recovered and embarked on a summer-long longboard ride with his father. That trip ended for Harrison on Sept. 7 in Red Deer when he suffered his most recent stroke. Traubert said they are hoping to have Long for Life events next summer, and hopefully Harrison is able to complete the trek.

Man jailed for possession of stolen property A Red Deer man who turned himself in after RCMP found stolen property at his home has been sentenced to four months in jail. Curtis Troy Sear, 39, pleaded guilty in Red Deer provincial court on Monday to possession of stolen property in connection with goods reported missing from a stolen pickup truck on Aug. 7, 2012. Additional charges were withdrawn, including possession of a prohibited weapon and possession of an illegal drug. Crown prosecutor Jillian Brown said the investigation started when RCMP found a sto-

len pickup truck on a rural road outside of Blackfalds at 9 a.m. Later in the day, the truck’s owner found items that had been in the truck being offered for sale online and went to the address to inspect them. The man who came to the door was wearing a necklace that had been inside the truck. He also had the same tires that had been in the stolen truck. Brown said he reported his findings to police, who then searched Sear’s home. Sear was sentenced to four months in jail, minus the 91 days he has spent in custody since turning himself in at the

Red Deer City detachment. Judge Bert Skinner also ordered that Sear stay at least a block away from the home of the person who owns the truck for a period of one year following his release. Sear is due back in court later this week to enter a plea on charges arising from a separate incident, as well as charges that he breached conditions of his release for 2012 incident. In a statement released on July 26, 2013, Innisfail RCMP said a member from the detachment was on patrol near Penhold at about 6 a.m. and decided to run a check on two pickup

trucks that were stopped at the side of the road. The two men with the trucks were in the process of hooking up a trailer with a skid steer mounted on its deck. Police allege that the trailer and skid steer had been stolen from a work site near Bowden. Sear and Red Deer resident Shawn Davis Olsen, 38, were arrested and jointly charged with multiple offences, including possessing property obtained by crime and possession of cocaine. Both men are to return to court on Friday to enter their pleas.

Fire keeps evacuees out of homes BY THE CANADIAN PRESS Residents of an tiny Alberta community near the site of a train derailment remained out of their homes for third day as CN Rail struggled to get the upper hand on a fire that was threatening the area. Staff monitoring the derailment near Gainford were planning another controlled burn Monday evening to get rid of any remaining propane in pressurized tank cars that left the track over the weekend. It’s the second time in as many days that CN (TSX:CNR) had attempted to vent and then ignite the gas that remains on the train. CN had hoped to have people home after a first controlled burn on Sunday night. “Unfortunately when we went to inspect the cars ... we found that not all the cars had vented their propane,” said Warren Chandler, a spokesman for the railway. “We hoped for an early return, but in the interests of safety, we can’t do that yet.” The controlled burn procedure involves placing small explosives on the hulls of the derailed propane tank cars, then detonating them to punch small holes in the pressurized car shells. The gas vapour ignites as it escapes and is supposed to burn off in a controlled manner. Gainford residents have been out of their homes since early Saturday morning when 13 cars on a freight train went off the rails about 80 kilometres west of Edmonton. Two explosions were reported, so people were ordered from their homes as a precaution. No one was injured. As of Sunday, 126 people had registered with the evacuation centre. Three of the rail cars were carrying liquefied petroleum gas, commonly known as propane, and caught fire. Four of the derailed freight cars were carrying crude and didn’t break open. CN said those units have been removed from the scene. Parkland County spokeswoman Jackie Ostashek said some impatient residents have begun taking matters into their own hands. “There have been some concerns about people trying to breach the roadblocks. We’re trying to ensure that people understand what we’re doing and why we’re doing it,” she said. Emergency crews have escorted a few people back to their property, she said. “Where it was safe to do so, we did have fire crews assist people to go back. They took them there only after the determination that they were outside the immediate threat area. It is not something we are encouraging doing and only in exceptional circumstances.” Mayor Rod Shaigec acknowledged there’s frustration among those affected. “All the reports that I have is that they are satisfied with the information they’re receiving,” he said. “Certainly there’s people that are frustrated. (But) every measure is taken to ensure this is going to be addressed as quickly as possible with the focus on safety. “We’re not going to let people back until we get the notice that all the crews on the ground are satisfied that it is safe to be back.” Evacuees are being asked to document their expenses while they are out of their homes so that CN can reimburse them. “We will ensure that verified claims for damages are promptly honoured,” Chandler said. On the weekend, officials said there had been no damage to private property in the vicinity of the blast. On Monday, Chandler would not confirm that. CN said it is not ready to say what may have caused the derailment or what damage may have occurred, either to the rail company’s infrastructure or the Yellowhead Highway, Northern Alberta’s main east-west artery. The highway remained closed Monday.

EXTREME ESTEEM

Alberta is looking for more full-time nurses.

Question: Our daughter’s first semester away at college was an academic disaster. We haven’t seen evidence of any other troubling behaviors, so we’re not quite sure what to think. Should we threaten to withdraw funding for college? Jim: Sending a child off to college can be an emotionally difficult event JIM for a family, DALY and when the initial result is disappointing, it’s hard not to feel upset. Even the best of students often experience a drop-off in grades during their first year in college. The world of the university is very different from that of high school, and a freshman typically undergoes a certain amount of culture shock. She has to learn her way around a new and confusing campus, and adapt to a strange schedule that involves a great deal more time working outside of class than sitting in a lecture hall. In your daughter’s case, she has to adjust to a new living situation and being responsible for her own eating, sleeping and study habits. It also involves processing a whole host of new friends and acquaintances. On top of everything else, she may suffer from homesickness. Once she’s navigated this, she has to find time and energy to devote to physics, English, geography, French and chemistry. It’s not an easy assignment. You should certainly retain the op-

FOCUS ON FAMILY

tion to defund her education if things don’t improve. But for now, I’d encourage you to find out what’s going on, what she needs from you, and what will help ease the adjustment process. It’s possible that she’s longing for some reassurance from you. She may be desperate to know that you have confidence in her and are willing to stand by and support her during this challenging transition. I have a feeling that specific answers will emerge out of your relationship with your daughter. So don’t jump to conclusions. Instead, take the time you need to talk things through. Question: My wife and I are constantly getting in power struggles. How can we get beyond this? Dr. Greg Smalley, Vice President, Family Ministries: Why do power struggles cause us such trouble? It’s simple. In every power struggle, couples see themselves as adversaries. This can be as subtle as insisting on “making a point.” The problem is, even if one member of the pair “wins” the point, it means an automatic loss for the relationship. If one person in the marriage “loses,” then both persons in the marriage lose. There is no such thing as a win/lose scenario in marriage. I encourage you to make a commitment to a new way of doing things and to abandon the failed, old model. This begins by establishing what my colleague, Bob Paul, calls a “No Losers Policy.” In a No Losers Policy, couples agree that it will never be acceptable, from this point on, for either of them to walk away from any interaction feeling as if they had lost. Each spouse has to feel good about the solution.

When you make influenza immunization an annual event, you protect yourself, your family, and our community.

Influenza Immunization FALL INTO THE ROUTINE

Alberta is a province that has grown to over 4 million people and is still growing. Our health system is growing, too.

Influenza Immunization is now available, free of charge, to all Albertans six months of age and older.

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.

UPCOMING CLINICS IN YOUR LOCAL AREA

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.

Assorted salts are shown. Hypertension Canada has raised the recommended amount of daily sodium intake to 2,000 mg, the equivalent of roughly one teaspoon of salt.

2,000 mg of dietary sodium a day OK BY THE CANADIAN PRESS A group that advises doctors on how to best help patients prevent high blood pressure is shaking up its advice on the amount of sodium Canadians should get in their diets. Hypertension Canada announced it has raised its recommended amount of daily sodium intake for most adults to 2,000 milligrams, the equivalent of roughly five millilitres or one teaspoon of salt. The organization’s recommendations task force — made up of almost 70 doctors, nurses, dietitians and other health professionals from across Canada — decided to raise the daily sodium target to 2,000 mg after reviewing the latest research about the effects of salt on blood pressure. Previous recommendations advised Canadians aged 14 to 50 to limit their daily sodium consumption to 1,500 mg, those 51 to 70 to aim for 1,300 mg, and those 70 and older to ingest even less — 1,200 mg. But task force co-chairman Dr. Raj Padwal said research shows that cutting salt intake to even 2,000 mg a day from 3,600 mg can significantly improve blood pressure levels. “The second reason is that 1,500 or 1,300 or 1,200 ... it’s simply not feasible because the average intake in the Canadian population is 3,400 milligrams, which is about a teaspoon and a half of salt.” In 2010, a sodium working group chaired by Health Canada advised Canadian adults to try to cut salt con-

sumption by a third so they could reach a maximum of 2,300 mg a day by 2016. The group said 1,500 mg daily is considered adequate intake. At the same time, the food and restaurant industries were urged to voluntarily pinch back the sodium in their products. About 75 per cent of sodium in people’s diets comes from processed foods, not from sprinkling meals with salt during cooking or at the table. Padwal, an internal medicine specialist at the University of Alberta, conceded that variations in intake targets from different organizations are likely confusing people. “Based on our review of the (research) literature, we’re very comfortable with this cutpoint and ... the fact that it reduced blood pressure.” Research has suggested that reducing excess dietary sodium could prevent the premature deaths of 30 to 40 Canadians a day from heart disease and stroke, or roughly 11,000 to 15,000 a year. Keeping blood pressure levels under control helps prevent heart attacks and strokes. Padwal said it’s important for consumers to remember that much of their sodium comes from processed foods, which makes it a hidden source. “Nobody really eats sodium or even salt,” he said. “You don’t sit down at your dinner table and portion out your food and have a portion of salt that you scoop into your mouth. You eat food.” That’s why another key recommendation from the Hypertension Canada task force is to eat a healthy diet, including high-fibre foods and fresh fruits and vegetables. “And by doing so, your sodium intake will naturally decline. You don’t have to worry about the numbers ... your sodium intake will naturally be around two grams.”

VALUE: Dig deeper If we dig a little deeper, we find fear, poor self-esteem and a lack of self-awareness. The problem with false impressions is just that: they’re false, an illusion. And what is illusion must eventually give way to reality often creating disappointment or resistance. Some people are convincing actors but eventually the curtain falls, the costumes and makeup come off and the house lights come up. What then will the audience behold? Relationships built upon an honest presentation of self are always healthier and more enduring. This ancient piece of wisdom has been echoed by sages down through the ages but never as eloquently as by Shake-

speare’s Hamlet: “This above all: to thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the night (follows) the day, thou canst not then be false to any man.” As time went by Rick’s daughter began to make further demands. If Rick was picking her up after school or following a visit with a friend, he was also to park at least two blocks away. He was never to meet the parents of her friends or introduce himself as her father. Eventually Rick and his wife sat down with their daughter to discuss the issue. “You don’t know what it’s like,” she cried. “It’s hard to make friends today.” Rick’s wife explained that no lasting friendship would be built on a false impression. She suggested that her daughter try being open and honest, maybe inviting one of the girls over to the house for a visit.

Reluctant, even fearful at first, Rick’s daughter eventually acted upon her mother’s advice. Predictably, some of girls scoffed at the request and rejected her outright when they learned of her modest existence. One girl did accept the offer and over time became a close friend. And that friendship, founded upon honesty, endures to this day. Want to make a good impression? Make an honest one. There will be those who appreciate it and those who won’t, but the ones who do won’t be disappointed when the house lights come up. Murray Fuhrer is a self-esteem expert and facilitator.

Late goal lifts Flames past Kings BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Flames 3 Kings 2 LOS ANGELES — T.J. Brodie scored the tiebreaking power-play goal with 29.7 seconds to play, and the Calgary Flames rallied for a 3-2 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Monday night. The Flames were awarded a power play with 2:12 left in regulation when Dennis Wideman fell to the ice near the benches, drawing a hooking penalty on Anze Kopitar. Brodie collected a bouncing puck in the slot and beat Jonathan Quick for the third power-play goal of the night for the Flames, who had lost on first two stops of their fivegame trip. Mike Cammalleri scored in his season debut for the Flames, and rookie Sean Monahan added another powerplay goal in the second period. Karri Ramo stopped 27 shots in his first victory for Calgary. Jeff Carter scored a tying short-handed goal late in the second period for the Kings, who had won 17 of their previous 19 home games. Quick made 22 saves, and Drew Doughty scored an early power-play goal in just Los Angeles’ second loss in seven games. All five goals in the game were scored on special teams. Calgary’s league-worst penalty kill gave up another goal, while the Kings had one of the NHL’s best penalty-killing units before giving up three to the Flames. Both teams started slowly in a tentative first period, with Kings coach Darryl Sutter throwing out novel line combinations and trying new players on special teams. Calgary didn’t record a shot on goal in the final 13:52 of the period. Los Angeles went ahead during a power play late in the period when Doughty put a wrist shot in the top corner of

Ramo’s net for his third goal of the season. Doughty has goals in back-to-back games after the $56 million defenceman went without a point for seven consecutive games. Cammalleri evened it on a power play early in the second period, beating Quick after a cross-ice pass from Jiri Hudler. Cammalleri, the Flames’ leading scorer last season, sat out the first seven games of this year with an upper-body injury.

Monahan put the Flames ahead at the close of a sharp passing sequence for the Flames, batting home a loose puck on another power play. The 19-year-old centre already has six goals in his first eight NHL games since Calgary chose him with the sixth overall pick this summer. The Kings evened it up with an impressive short-handed rush from Carter, who took the puck at his blue line and fended off Mark Giordano be-

fore throwing it at Mike Richards in front, where the puck deflected off Wideman’s stick and beat Ramo. Carter, who led the Western Conference with 26 goals last season, has five goals in another strong start for the Kings. NOTES: Los Angeles D Robyn Regehr played his first 11 NHL seasons with Calgary before getting traded to Buffalo in 2011. ... Hudler had two assists. He has scored in each of the Flames’ eight games this

season, the only player in the NHL without a scoreless game yet this season. ... Los Angeles scratched F Jordan Nolan for the first time this season. Matt Frattin returned to the lineup. ... Ramo started his second straight game despite giving up five goals in San Jose last Saturday. Joey MacDonald is expected to start Tuesday in Phoenix. ... Dodgers C Tim Federowicz and “Parks and Recreation” star Retta also attended.

Giants get first win over sloppy Vikings NFL BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Giants 23 Vikings 7 EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — With six losses on their resume, the New York Giants could have been wondering if they would ever win a game this season. Instead, they searched within to see what they are made of. “The players and coaches have great pride in what we’re doing,” Eli Manning said Monday night after — at last — the team’s first victory, 23-7 over the Minnesota Vikings. “We just had to keep going, get rid of some of the mistakes, and play the way we need to play.” They were efficient, if not overwhelming, which is all they needed to be against the mistake-prone Vikings (1-5). The Giants began the season as the team turning over the ball

(minus-16 difference) while showing little penchant for playing defence. But against the Vikings, they had three takeaways to one lost fumble. Peterson, the league’s MVP last season and a 2,000-yard rusher, was held to 28 yards five days after his 2-yearold son was buried in South Dakota. The man accused in the death was indicted on second-degree murder and manslaughter charges, prosecutors said Monday. “It was tough sledding. We couldn’t get anything established up front,” Peterson said. “I was focused on preparing for the game, unfortunately it didn’t work out the way we wanted to. It was tough. The defence made it hard.” Peterson was not helped by a rusty Josh Freeman, making his debut as Vikings quarterback after being signed as a free agent when Tampa Bay cut the 2009 first-round draft pick. Freeman frequently missed open receivers, and several of his throws sailed yards beyond his targets. Coach Leslie Frazier said he con-

sidered taking out Freeman, but that the score was close enough for him to stick with his new QB. Josh Brown kicked three field goals and Rueben Randle caught a 24-yard TD pass for New York (1-6). “For us, we can’t look too much past a win and a step in the right direction,” defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins said. “We can’t look beyond the next step.” Marcus Sherels provided Minnesota’s points with an 86-yard punt return, but his fumble without being hit during a runback midway in the third quarter set up New York at the Vikings 3. Peyton Hillis, signed last Wednesday with the Giants in dire need of running backs, surged in from the 1 for a 17-7 lead — New York’s biggest in 2013. The lead grew on Brown’s 23-yard field goal to finish off a 16-play, 75-yard drive, and to 23-7 on his 36-yarder. Another Vikings mistake handed those points to the Giants: Rookie Sharrif Floyd, a defensive tackle of all things, fumbled at Minnesota’s 18 while returning a short kickoff.

“We needed to get one on the board,” defensive end Justin Tuck said. “I told (general manager) Jerry Reese that I think we have a shovel to start digging our way out of this hole. Hopefully, tonight is something we can build off. It’s still a long way to climb out of this hole. But this was something that we could get the ball rolling.” The Giants controlled the clock and the ball for most of the opening quarter and led 3-0 when Sherels broke his spectacular punt return — the third against the Giants this season. He sped down the left sideline virtually untouched, then twice faked out punter Steve Weatherford. By the time Weatherford reached Sherels, it was at the goal line — where Weatherford brought him down with a horse-collar tackle. Minnesota had a total of 8 yards on punt runbacks heading into Monday night. But Sherels set a team mark with 119. Before Sherels’ sprint, New York had gone 17 plays and used up the first 9:36, but bogged down at the 16 and Brown made a 35-yard field goal.

Stamps O-line prepares for Riders with Alex Hall BY THE CANADIAN PRESS CALGARY — The Calgary Stampeders offensive line made room for Jon Cornish to run for 175 yards and four touchdowns the last time the Saskatchewan Roughriders visited McMahon Stadium. Then Calgary’s offensive linemen held CFL sack leader Alex Hall to zero sacks when the Winnipeg Blue Bombers came to town earlier this month. Can they continue their success Saturday, now that Hall is a Roughrider following his trade from Winnipeg? A 42-27 loss to Calgary on Aug. 9 was an anomaly for a Saskatchewan defensive line that was talented enough before Hall’s arrival Oct. 6. Saskatchewan is tied for second in the CFL in sacks with Montreal and ranks second in stopping the rush. The Roughriders’ defence contributed to 28 points scored off turnovers in a 35-14 win over the B.C. Lions last Saturday. “Their front four, front five now that Alex Hall has joined the club, they’re great run defenders and pass rushers,” Calgary head coach John Hufnagel said Monday following the Stampeders’ team photo. “It’s going to be a big challenge for our offence to be able to run the ball efficiently and effectively and protect our passers.” Calgary (13-3) and Saskatchewan (11-5) have already secured home playoff dates, so it’s now a matter of who hosts the division semifinal Nov. 10 or the final Nov. 17. Calgary can secure first in the West Division with a win or a tie Saturday. Saskatchewan can extend the race for first place to the last week of the regular season with a victory.

Calgary and Saskatchewan are 1-1 against each other this season, so Saturday’s victor would get the higher playoff seed in the event they’re tied in points at the conclusion of the regular season. “Truthfully, I’m very pleased this game means something for both teams,” Hufnagel said. “It’ll get us playoff ready.” Calgary’s Charleston Hughes has pulled even with Hall for the league lead in sacks (15). Stampeder defensive end Cordarro Law is second with 12. But Saskatchewan’s John Chick, the CFL’s defensive player of the year in 2009, Tearrius George, Jermaine McElveen and Ricky Foley can be hard on opposing offensive lines with a combined 29 quarterback tackles between them. While acknowledging Saskatchewan’s prowess on the defensive line, the Stampeders aren’t prepared to say the Roughrider front four with Hall will be their toughest test this season. “I think Saskatchewan’s defensive line is a huge strength for them,” Stampeder tackle Edwin Harrison said. “Any time you can add a player like Alex Hall to your unit, you get an immediate upgrade as a unit. “I don’t want to say we don’t look at our opponent, but every game is a big game. Every game we have somebody who is a quality opponent. “It will definitely be a huge test for us, an important test for us, but it will be a huge test and a huge game for our team because it’s the next game. Make no mistakes, this team, it doesn’t matter who we play.” Calgary leads the CFL in fewest sacks against and most rushing yards, a testament to the offensive line’s performance. They’ve done it with a rotating cast of characters, because the offensive line wasn’t exempt from the

injuries besetting the Stampeders at almost every position this season. Harrison began this season on the nine-game injured list because of a lingering knee injury. The latest ailment is left tackle Stanley Bryant, who is questionable for Saturday’s game with a knee injury. Right tackle Dan Federkeil moves back into the lineup after missing five games with a groin injury, but right guard Dimitri Tsoumpas remains sidelined with a concussion. J’Michael Deane and Spencer Wilson have rotated in where needed on the right side. Rookie centre Brett Jones and guard Jon Gott are the only two linemen who have managed to stay in games week to week. Harrison says a lot of homework goes into adapting to personnel changes almost every week. “Every guy in our group does an outstanding job of preparing themselves to play each and every week,” he said. “I don’t think a lot of people know how much time we put in, not only on the practice field, but in the meeting room and at home. “As an offensive line, if everybody in that room isn’t on the same page, we will not be successful.” How significant is Calgary’s containment of Hall on Oct. 5 and the dismantling of the ’Riders defensive line in August heading into Saturday’s game? Not very, offensive line coach Mike Gibson said. “Those games didn’t define who we are,” he said. “Our body of work is defined by who we are. They were part of it no doubt. “We’re first in the league in rushing, we’re first in the league in the least sacks and that wouldn’t happen with just two games. We see good defences week in and week out and we just have to be prepared to play.”

Reserves star in Raptors’ OT win NBA PRE-SEASON BY THE CANADIAN PRESS TORONTO — To Dwane Casey’s way of thinking, it was more than just overtime. It was an invaluable lesson. So, through much of the fourth quarter and two extra sessions Monday night, the Toronto Raptors head coach never thought of returning his starters to the floor against the New York Knicks. This is the pre-season, a time to learn about your team. And for your players to learn about themselves. The Raptors reserves got to play a starring role in a 123-120 double overtime win before 15,701 at the Air Canada Centre, improving their pre-season record to an impressive 5-1. “It was a great experience for those young kids to really play in those situations,” Casey said. “In the regular season, most likely, unless something catastrophic happens, they’re not going to be out there.” Second-year guard Terrence Ross led the way, hitting six of the 13 threepoint shots he attempted on the night. None was bigger than a rainbow from beyond the arc as the buzzer sounded to end the first overtime period, tying the game at 113-113 and setting the stage for another five-minute session. “It prepares you for future games if you ever get in that situation, what to do, what not to do,” said Ross, who finished the night as the game’s high scorer with 27 points. “It’s always kind of nerve-wracking (in a game) no matter how many times you go over it in practice. “So, getting in that live experience it helps.” The games don’t count. But that doesn’t mean they don’t matter.

Casey said because “nobody’s guaranteed minutes,” it was great to see the bench players battle down the stretch and eventually pick up the win. Especially after they struggled earlier in the game. “I owe it to the players to try and execute down the stretch,” Casey said. Toronto power forward Tyler Hansbrough, who since signing from Indianapolis in the off-season has already become a fan favourite for his aggressive style of play, forced overtime with a dunk in the dying seconds of the fourth quarter. He took a pass at the top of the key, spun on his defender and waltzed to the basket. “They’re very important minutes,” Hansbrough said of the fourth quarter and overtimes. “You never know if a starter is going to go down or something and you’re going to be in that situation, especially late in the game. “It was important to get some guys some experience.” Among the starters, DeMar DeRozan had 21 points and seven rebounds in 29 minutes while Rudy Gay added 19 points and seven rebounds in 26 minutes. Kyle Lowry chipped in 11 points in 24 minutes. “It was entertaining to watch, especially to see the other guys get out there and get a chance to compete,” said DeRozan. “It definitely helps because you have to understand every play and every situation is critical.” The Raptors were an impressive 6-1 in the pre-season last year but ended up posting a 34-48 record in the games that count for something in the standings. They missed the playoffs for a fifth straight season. The Knicks took a 79-77 lead into the final quarter after Toure Murry’s one-handed prayer from centre court found the mark at the buzzer. The shot restored a New York lead, which climbed as high as 13 points earlier in

The Raptors, who host Memphis on Wednesday and finish the pre-season at Milwaukee on Friday, open the regular season on Oct. 30 when the Boston Celtics visit Air Canada Centre. The Knicks took a 60-51 lead into the locker room at halftime as Metta World Peace had eight points in eight second-

quarter minutes off the bench. The former Ron Artest, who signed a two-year deal with New York after four seasons with the Los Angeles Lakers, hit a pair of three-pointers in the quarter. The Knicks bench was the difference in the first half, outscoring their Raptors’ counterparts 30-14. The Raptors had led 30-29 after one quarter on the strength of Gay’s 11 points and 10 from DeRozan.

Roman Hamrlik retires after 20 NHL seasons Giguere, Avalanche NHL ROUNDUP

TORONTO — Veteran defenceman Roman Hamrlik announced his retirement Monday, ending a 20-year NHL career that included three all-star appearances. Hamrlik was drafted first overall by the Tampa Bay Lightning in the 1992 NHL Entry Draft. He played 1,395 regular-season games and 113 post-season games with Tampa Bay, Edmonton, the New York Islanders, Calgary, Montreal, Washington and the New York Rangers over his career. Hamrlik, from Zlin, Czech Republic, scored 155 goals and had 483 assists for 638 points while averaging over 23 minutes in ice time per game over the course of his NHL career. “As a kid growing up in communist Czechoslovakia, I never imagined that I would one day have the opportunity to

play in the National Hockey League,” Hamrlik said in an NHLPA statement. “It has been a great honour and a privilege to spend 20 seasons playing in the greatest hockey league in the world. “I will always cherish the wonderful memories I have of my time spent in North America while playing the game I love, making sacrifices and pursuing my hockey dreams.” His best offensive year came in the 1995-’96 season, when he had 16 goals and 49 assists for the Lightning. He had a career-high rating of plus-22 with the 2006-’07 Calgary Flames. Hamrlik had one assist and was minus-4 in 16 games last season with the Capitals and Rangers. He was an unrestricted free agent this season before retiring. Hamrlik, who was an all-star in 1996, 1999 and 2003, represented the Czech Republic internationally and helped his country win the gold medal at the 1998 Nagano Olympics.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS AVALANCHE 1 PENGUINS 0 PITTSBURGH — Jean-Sebastien Giguere turned aside 34 shots for his second shutout in 11 days. The resule was the Colorado Avalanche edged the Pittsburgh Penguins 1-0 on Monday night. Gabriel Landeskog scored the game’s only goal 5:26 into the second period as Colorado improved to 8-1, the best start in franchise history. The game was billed as a fight for bragging rights between Pittsburgh star Sidney Crosby and Colorado rookie Nathan MacKinnon. The former No. 1 picks both are from Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia in Canada. Instead, Giguere stole the show. Pittsburgh went 0 for 7 on the power play and lost for the first time at home despite outshooting the Avalanche 3414. Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 13 shots for the Penguins (7-2).

EDMONTON — The Edmonton Oilers have traded Mike Brown to the San Jose Sharks for a fourth-round pick in the 2014 draft. Brown had been in the lineup for eight of the Oilers’ nine games and had zero points, a minus-1 rating and 19 penalty minutes. The

5-foot-11 grinder joins a Sharks team that is 8-0-1. “Mike plays a speed game and fits the ’Fast, Hard and Supportive’ mantra that our team wants to play with,” Sharks general manager Doug Wilson said in a statement. “He is a player with tremendous character, knows the Western Conference well and brings a tough, physical ingredient to
