A shift toward the centre WILDROSE FILLS POLICY GAPS, AFFIRMS EQUALITY FOR ALL AND COMMITS TO REDUCING GREENHOUSE GASES BY MYLES FISH ADVOCATE STAFF Centrally located in Red Deer, the Wildrose party’s annual general meeting over the weekend was about moving the party a little closer to the political centre as it prepares for another electoral fight against the Progressive Conservatives three years down the road. Nearly 500 party members gathered at the Sheraton on Friday and Saturday, where through a series of near-unanimous votes, they opted to scrap some of their once-signature policies while affirming a belief in equality for all and committing to reduce greenhouse gases. The changes, said party leader Danielle Smith, were made to clarify the party’s beliefs for voters who may have been scared away from the party in the 2012 election campaign in which the party appeared sure to win in the lead up, only to finish a distant second on election night. “We’re still a conservative party. The values that we hold are, I think, clarified. I think that we had a couple of holes in our policy book that were filled. We had no policy on greenhouse gases; now we do. We had no policy on equality rights; now we do,” said Smith, who received 90 per cent support from party members in a leadership vote on Friday night.

SMITH, REDFORD TO FACE OFF TODAY A3 Resolutions committing the party to reducing greenhouse gases and aligning the province’s environmental standards with other jurisdictions were carried strongly, though one member in the debate called global warming “the biggest scam in human history.” And though a policy proposal to defend the rights of all people regardless of race, religion, gender or sexual orientation did not make it to the floor because it was deemed to be poorly worded, party members did vote uniformly in support of a special motion stating the equality of all.

Wildrose Party members vote on a policy motion at the party’s annual general meeting at the Sheraton Red Deer Hotel on Saturday. Through a number of near-unanimous votes, party members voted to delete or amend some of the party’s once-signature policies, while committing to fight climate change and defend human rights through other motions. The party also removed from its policy book support for conscience rights and the dismantling of Alberta Human Rights Commissions, while scrapping “firewall” ideas such as the creation of a provincial police force or a provincial constitution. “I think that there are some misunderstandings or misinterpretations of what our party stands for based on some controversial statements made by two candidates,” said Smith in reference to a candidate’s statements uncovered during the 2012 campaign that said gays would spend eternity in the “lake of fire, hell” and another’s belief that he had an advantage because of his being a Caucasian. “I think that this is the reason why our members felt so strongly about making some positive affirmations about what we stand for because I think all of us are feeling hurt by the fact that we are perceived in a certain way because of


some comments that a majority of us didn’t support.”

If there was anything scary about the city’s Waste Reduction Day Spooktacular event on Saturday, it was realizing just how long some Red Deerians have held onto electronics long past their usefulness. Among the many spent devices brought in to the city’s Waste Management Facility on the day were a microwave probably not in use for decades and some televisions and computers far older than any of the costumed kids in attendance. On the warm fall day, hundreds came out with hauls of the old and unwanted from their basements and backyards — boxes of fluorescent lights,

BY MYLES FISH ADVOCATE STAFF In an era where anyone can shoot a video and thousands of films are accessible from a person’s couch, Matt Grue does not think film is the impossible dream it once was. Good thing, because for Grue, film is the medium that the story he wrote needed.

bags of batteries, cans of old paint and even one now-beerless growler all filled up the recycling containers set up for the free special event. After giving a popular bus tour of the landfill, Janet Whitesell, the city’s waste management superintendent, said locals do a decent job of diverting recyclables from the waste stream. But with a municipal goal of reducing the amount of per capita waste sent to the landfill by 40 per cent by 2023 — from 812 kg per capita per year to 500 kg per capita per year — residents have a long ways to go. The targets are set out in the city’s Waste Management Master Plan, unveiled earlier this year.

This despite the fact that when Grue’s Year After Year premiered on a Red Deer stage in 2010, it won praise and respect for what could be produced locally. But for the Red Deer College alumnus, live performance did not allow for the subtext, depth, and character exploration he always wanted audiences to see. And so the musical production has made its way onto the big

screen, Grue and company working around a miniscule budget and time sensitivity to create the “definitive version” of the story. “We made an independent, micro-budget feature film musical in Red Deer, Alberta. And it has a beginning, middle, and an end. In all seriousness, that doesn’t really compute.

FILM: Likened to adult version of hit show Glee “Those elements combined don’t make a lot of sense,” said Grue, who wrote and directed the film. Dustin Clark directed and edited the film, while Curtis Labelle composed the music and Stephanie Ridge and Spenser Pasman wrote the lyrics. Grue said the film is like an adult version of the hit TV show Glee, though the local production uses original songs. He said the diversity of characters and their struggles in the film will allow for audiences to easily latch onto something they see on screen. “I think there are a lot of access points for an audience to really get sucked into it,” he said Sunday in advance of the film’s invitation-only premiere. The show is centred around seven friends in their late 20s who — in between gathering for main character Bill’s 28th and 29th birthday parties — struggle to navigate personal relationships and professional ambitions. Of the principal actors, only Joel Crichton, playing Bill, acted in the stage production. The group of friends is made up of Kate (Sarah Hemphill), Hunter (Matthew Thiel), Todd (Chris W. Cook), Laura (Zina Lee), Peter (Andrew McKenzie), and Rachel (Elena Porter). The actors live around Alberta; most of them also attended Red Deer College. Crichton reprises his role as Bill, a middling writer with a future that appears to be growing bleaker as he ages another year. After having dealt with some of the film’s themes in his own life, he said that he has a better understanding of and appreciation for the work of art this time around. While at first skeptical of Grue and Clark being able to put together a proper film, Crichton said during filming he saw the benefits of a renewed vision for the story. “I think the stage show ended up feeling a lot like a concert with scenes in between. In addition to making the leap to film, the script just developed and deepened and got better,” he said. None of the six other principal actors had ever seen the stage show. Hemphill, who as Kate is hampered by her conflicting emotions towards Bill throughout the film, said one message from the film is to take life as it comes. “We all go through these huge ups and downs and this film is not just about one singular person. It really focuses on the six of us and what we go through as grown adults, whether it’s divorce, getting married, or that love that you can’t obtain or are afraid to obtain,” she said. All the action was shot in one month last August, with eighty per cent of the film shot in Red Deer, with Innisfail, Edmonton, and Vancouver the other filming locations. Grue said the process taught him that there is a lot of visual diversity in Red Deer, and he hopes locals will appreciate that art can thrive in the city. “I hope that everybody else begins to recognize that it isn’t always the city you’re in or the environment that you’re in that makes great artists, it’s the people that you assemble and the vision that you create for them,” he said. Grue said the film is not necessarily a finished product yet, with edits possible even between shows during the week-long public screening to take place at Cardinal Cinemas from Nov. 1-7. Showtime is 6:15 p.m. every evening. The film was put together by the Matchbox Theatre Foundation and Ozmosis Entertainment, in association with Ignition Theatre.

The party’s environment critic Joe Anglin, who represents the Rimbey-Rocky Mountain HouseSundre constituency, told party members during the environmental policy debate that the province’s industry sector is looking for a government that will help it access the markets of countries that are setting firm environmental targets. He said he expected the emotional debate, but not the overwhelming vote of support the motions got in the end. “We are conservatives. To say we want to conserve the environment, that goes hand in hand. A lot of the time environmentalists get labelled ‘tree huggers’ or ‘old hippies’ and that’s just not true. Your average farmer out here has just as much respect for water and for land,” said Anglin, a former leader of the provincial Green Party. He said the party’s seemingly sudden shifts actually represent a slow evolution that began with discussions before the last election. The party faithful, by and large, have been believers for years, he said, but have not had their beliefs put down in formal policy. “Where we got our reputation from was when this was a party of 45 members. We peaked somewhere around 26,000 members ... We grew,” said Anglin. Despite saying during the environmental policy debate that not acknowledging the role of greenhouse gases on a warming planet should be “a hill we have to be prepared to die on,” Gord Tulk of Innisfail said he came away from the meeting proud to be a Wildrose party member. He said the party is engaged in a natural progression as it seeks to build trust among Albertans. “If you look at the federal Conservative government, they evolved to the centre as well as they got closer to power, as, frankly, the demographic of their grassroots changed. This is a less hardcore conservative party than it was in the past, especially in regard to social issues,” he said. Smith, who will be back in Red Deer on Nov. 8 to tour Michener Centre on an invitation from those fighting its closure, said her party will continue to prod the government on the issue in the new legislative sitting that begins today.

In an attempt to avoid any such future candidatefuelled embarrassments, the party also voted for stricter candidate-vetting rules. For future campaigns, prospective candidates will have to complete a questionnaire and party staff will search for public statements and writings made by contestants.

processing organics. “It’ll be a big change,” said Whitesell, “Forty per cent of your garbage is potentially organic and compostable. “We’re planning that in 2014 we’ll design our organics collection pilot for the residential sector, and run the pilot in 2015.” Part of the planning will be judging the feasibility of such a project and whether the processing should be city-run or private. In future years Whitesell said she expects more plastics, takeout containers, and construction waste will be accepted under the city’s waste-diversion program. She said the city is working on a waste audit to determine what actually makes up the waste drop-offs at the landfill; through that process she has noticed that there is lots of room for improvement throughout the business sector. “If you stand out there, it does get a little disheartening at times,” she said of the landfill. Since the province started its e-waste recycling program in 2004, 5.5 million televisions and computers have been recycled, said Elizabeth Gray, communications manager with Alberta Recycling. Nearly 12 million litres of paint have been recycled since 2008 and the equivalent of 78 million car tires have been recycled in the province over the last 20 years. After something is dropped off in a bin, it goes to one of the handful of recyclers in the province. For e-waste, individual units are broken down and the glass, metals, and plastics are separated before being shipped off to approved facilities — mostly in North America — for “downstream processing.” “They can’t just send it anywhere. They have to send the material to approved downstream processors ... We know that their material is going to not just a reputable company, but a company that has environmental controls as well,” said Gray. Recycled latex paint is made into new paint, while oil-based paints are used in energy recovery. Paint cans are recycled, and recycled aerosol spray cans may become rebar down the line. Crushed glass from fluorescent light bulbs, however, is landfilled, as there is no market for it, said Gray. Household hazardous waste goes to the Swan Hills Treatment Centre in northern Alberta, where it is disposed of. Whitesell said many people do not know that they can drop off household hazardous waste for free at the landfill at any time. dead at the scene. Weather and road conditions were believed to be factors in the collision. RCMP shut down the highway around the scene until late afternoon as they investigated.

Fall feud set to resume PC, WILDROSE PARTIES PREPARE TO SQUARE OFF IN LEGISLATURE BY THE CANADIAN PRESS EDMONTON — The feud between Alberta’s two rival right-centre parties resumes today in what has become — depending on your spin preference — a battle between the debt deniers and the climate change deniers. Premier Alison Redford is expected to outline the priorities for her Progressive Conservative government’s fall sitting in a noontime speech today to the Edmonton Chamber of Commerce, an hour or so before both parties square off again in the legislature chamber. What will be debated in the house has been kept largely under wraps. Redford’s government has moved away from past practice of outlining its priorities or holding a throne speech. Government House Leader Dave Hancock has said the sitting will see legislation to implement new rules surrounding the disastrous June floods that displaced tens of thousands and caused billions of dollars damage in and around Calgary. Late Sunday, the premier’s office sent out an email saying there will also be legislation to reduce traffic congestion. “The legislation would give the province the ability to respond to local needs and designate lane use such as creation of priority bus lanes, car pool lanes, and slow moving vehicles,” said the email. Otherwise, Albertans looking for more information have been directed to a short government video that promises in words flashed across a screen that Redford’s team will continue “Building Alberta.” Redford recently told the chamber of commerce in Fort Saskatchewan she expects the Wildrose will try to make hay out of her plan to borrow $17 billion over four years to pay for infrastructure to accommodate hundreds of thousands of newcomers. “We don’t have debt in this province. We have infrastructure in this province,” Redford told the chamber on Oct. 18. “We have roads in this province, schools in this province, and hospitals in this province. “We can’t start saying that we’re going to balance the books on the backs of people who either were impacted by flood, or (on) people who weren’t impacted by flood that still need roads and highways and hospitals and schools.” Redford had promised a balanced budget in last year’s election campaign, but this year delivered a spending document that runs in the red on the operations side to go with the billions of dollars in capital borrowing. Wildrose leader Danielle Smith said Albertans won’t be fooled by such sophistry. Smith said the debt is unnecessary, the result of poor planning, bloated management and capital spending based on political favour rather than objective rationale. “Last year at this time we warned you that Alberta’s finances were in serious trouble, and for months on end the government continued to deny it, until January when the premier invented the bitumen bubble (of declining profits for oilsands bitumen) as an excuse for poor planning and reckless spending,” said Smith. “We warned Albertans that the Alberta government would go seriously into deficit and debt. “They (the Tories) denied it for awhile, but then they created a budget that even the auditor general can’t comprehend to obscure the fact they will spend our entire $17-billion rainy day fund as well as rack up $17 billion worth of debt by 2016.” Smith’s party worked to defuse a public relations

Delegates also voted overwhelmingly to reaffirm its commitment to equal rights for all, including homosexuals. Both issues fatally wounded any chance for a Wildrose win the 2012 election. In the days before that vote, Redford’s team reversed surging Wildrose polling numbers by suggested the party was rife with bigots, adding that Alberta would look like a global punch line if it had a premier jetting to Washington and Brussels to announce climate change is bogus. The weekend Wildrose convention, held at a Red Deer hotel, had a surprise visitor on Saturday. Cal Dallas, Redford’s minister for international affairs, dropped in to remind reporters that when the Wildrose decided to embrace climate change on Friday, it hurriedly cancelled a party fundraiser with noted author/filmmaker/climate change denier Bruno Wiskel. “Let’s be real about what’s really going on here,” said Dallas. “Is there (actual) change in the context of approach to policy? No.” The hostility between the two parties is palpable, extending beyond the usual antagonisms of ideological rivals elbowing for position to grab the same brass ring. It is essentially a family feud. The Wildrose has become home for provincial Tories who could no longer stay within a party they believe has lost its commitment to fiscal prudence and preaches grass-

roots democracy while practising top-down decision making. The Wildrose and the PCs have become enemies to the knife, leading to legislature debates fraught with personal insults or worse. Wildroser Shayne Saskiw, in the house, once called Redford’s sister Lynn a criminal for making improper expense claims. One unnamed Tory backbencher was once overheard shouting across the aisle mocking Wildrose house leader Rob Anderson’s Mormon religion. This past week saw the government announce it will no longer give the opposition notice of government news conferences. Then the Wildrose kicked out three PC observers at the Wildrose convention, saying the PCers tried to — CAL DALLAS pass themselves off as Wildrosers in order to spy and subvert. Both Alberta’s opposition NDP and the Liberals say that during this sitting they want to push to end what has become government by stealth under Redford. They say while Redford promised transparency in the house, the reality is much different, with fewer sitting days and frequent Redford absences. They say fewer bills are introduced, and those that do come forward are long on motherhood statements but short on detail, leaving the actual rules to be decided upon behind closed doors. “Under Redford’s leadership, transparency has all but evaporated in the province of Alberta,” said NDP Leader Brian Mason. Liberal house leader Laurie Blakeman branded it cynical politics. “If you don’t tell people what you’re plan is, how can you be held accountable for it later?” she asked.


Officers, dogs give special show to Premier and mayors thank people following dog’s death talk charters, transit going to?” asked Tammy Krywiak, who owns several dogs, including a German shepherd guard dog. Rooyakkers, meanwhile, said he was surprised when he found out there wasn’t already a special law protecting police animals. Quanto is the fifth Edmonton police dog to die in the line of duty. A police dog named Caesar was the last animal killed in 1998. The throne speech did not specify what Quanto’s Law would entail. Paul Vukmanich faces a number of charges following Quanto’s death, including dangerous driving, criminal flight, resisting arrest and cruelty to an animal.

EDMONTON — The mayors of Calgary and Edmonton talked about moving forward together during a weekend breakfast meeting with Alberta Premier Alison Redford. Naheed Nenshi, who was re-elected in Calgary last Monday, says it had been months since he met with the premier and Edmonton’s mayor at the same time. Nenshi says there was a feeling during Saturday’s meeting in Edmonton that there should be more conversations at that level, rather than delegating the job to different ministries. Edmonton Mayor-Elect Don Iveson says the conversation focused on the role big cities play in the growing province. Iveson says they spoke about a timeline for keeping up work on new city charters, which would give cities more taxing and spending authority. He says they also discussed the importance of completing rapid transit networks in both cities in a timely fashion.

Edmonton police dogs and their handlers have performed public demonstrations before, but one on Sunday held special meaning following the fatal stabbing of one of the force’s dogs earlier this month. Many people brought their families to a public park in below-freezing temperatures to get an up-close look at the dogs and to express how much they appreciate them. “It’s sad, obviously, to hear of any kind of any kind of harm to an animal. But these kinds of dogs in particular, they put their lives on the line for all of us,” said Wade Rooyakkers, who attended the demonstration with his children. Quanto, a German shepherd, was stabbed to death Oct. 7 while trying to take down a man accused of fleeing a car with stolen plates. Staff Sgt. Troy Carriere with the police department’s canine unit said officers have been showered with support and sympathy from Edmonton, and from across Canada, since Quanto’s death and they wanted to hold the special demonstration to express their gratitude. Carriere said the support from people has come in the form of emails, gifts at the kennels and support to the Edmonton Humane Society. “Every night my handlers go out to pro-

Carriere, who travelled to Ottawa in support of the proposed legislation, said current laws are meant to prosecute people who abuse or torture animals. He said the way they’re worded, it’s difficult to lay charges against someone who hurts or kills a service animal. “In 2013, we’ve apprehended 260 criminals that would have gotten away,” Carriere said. “Without our dogs being able to do the jobs that they do, those guys are back on the street.” Supporters of a new law to protect police dogs weren’t hard to find at the demonstration on Sunday. “The canine unit is important to us. If we don’t protect them, who’s

tect and serve the community, and now when we need the support over the last couple of weeks, the community has stepped up and supported us,” Carriere said. Handlers allowed the dogs to mingle with the crowd and gave permission to pet some of them. One smiling toddler, in her mother’s arms and wearing a purple parka, said, Ruff! Ruff!“ to one of the German shepherds. The federal government said in its throne speech this month it will bring forward “Quanto’s Law” to protect animals that work with police. Police complained in Quanto’s case the strongest criminal charge that could be laid was cruelty to an animal.

Alberta’s progressive lead THIS IS NOW THE ECONOMIC, POLITICAL AND SOCIAL CENTRE OF CANADA BY ROBERT MURRAY SPECIAL TO THE ADVOCATE If one was to rely solely on Canadian media reports on the recent Alberta municipal elections, you would think Alberta went through a seismic political shift from radical conservatism to a sudden progressive awakening in one fowl swoop. Most of this discussion is focused on the mayoral re-election of Naheed Nenshi in Calgary and the election of Don Iveson as the new mayor of Edmonton. It is certainly true that the mayors of Alberta’s two major cities are progressive in their political ideologies but Alberta’s political landscape has been shifting for quite some time and really should come as no surprise. The external perceptions of Alberta across Canada continue to perpetuate a stereotype that should be long gone by this point. It is astounding to follow the commentary on Alberta from B.C., Ontario and the Maritimes, in particular, as they seem shocked that Albertans would elect politicians who are not labelled as traditionally conservative. More than anything else, this proves that the rest of the country continues to misunderstand the Prairie

provinces and the regional dynamics that have been at play for many years in the West. It is all too easy to point to the fact that of Alberta’s 28 seats in the House of Commons, only one is not held by the Conservatives, that being the one held by the NDP right in the heart of Edmonton. At the provincial level, the Progressive Conservative Party has been in power since 1971, thus leading observers to conclude that Alberta, and Albertans, are as conservative as ever. But a closer examination shows a far different trend: Alberta’s appetite for conservatism, and what is even meant by “conservative,” has been undergoing dramatic changes. Alberta’s political landscape has diversified as it has continued to grow in population. Variables such as the growth in the oil industry, the movement of corporate powerhouses from Ontario to the West, the recruitment of labour forces from other provinces in Canada, and the growth in immigrant populations have all contributed to an urban boom in both Edmonton and Calgary, and have begun to impact the demography of the province. As is the case in many of Canada’s large urban centres, as larger and more diverse populations move in, the political pref-

erences of the city change and often become more progressive. The nature of Alberta’s conservatism itself has also been transformed. Looking back to the 2012 election, Alison Redford’s election as the province’s first female premier can be attributed primarily to Albertans’ fears over perceptions that the Wildrose Party’s ideological base was radically farther to the right compared to the centrist/moderate platform of the PCs. Social conservatism has become increasingly taboo and utterances of social conservative positions by Wildrose Party candidates leading up to the election (especially on the issue of sexual orientation) stunted the momentum that many believed would carry Danielle Smith to victory. The question remains whether Alberta is truly more progressive in nature and whether recent trends demonstrate a shift in Western political attitudes. Arguably, progressivism has been emerging for decades, and one need only look to electoral trends and outcomes in federal, provincial and local elections to see that conservativeminded candidates have had to change their brand of conservatism, that nonconservative parties are far more com-

petitive in electoral races, and that the population of the province has evolved so much that traditional thinking in Alberta has undergone profound change. Recognizing the evolution in the interests and diversity of Alberta’s residents, politicians and political parties have been forced to reinvent themselves and have set limits on just how conservative they can be without incurring the wrath of an increasingly centrist voting public. The issue moving forward will be whether Alberta’s politicians will be able to find an effective approach to policy creation that can reap the benefits of the province’s conservative past and combine elements of its emerging urban-progressive thought. Sustainable policy strategies that are able to combine new and old thinking are pivotal for the good of Alberta and Canada as whole. Alberta is very much the current economic, political and social centre of Canada and it is time the rest of the country began paying attention to what is truly going on, rather than relying on outdated or ignorant stereotypes.

Salmon still face an upstream battle As the days get cooler and shorter, millions of salmon are making the arduous journey up the rivers and streams of British Columbia to the spawning grounds where they were born. Waiting for this rich pulse of life from the Pacific Ocean are bears, gulls, wolves, eagles, ospreys, crows, pine martins and dozens of other species. Communities and businesses wait, too. It’s fitting that this time of year also marks the first anniversary of the final report of the Cohen Commission of Inquiry into the Decline of Sockeye Salmon in the Fraser River. The record decline in sockDAVID eye returning to the Fraser SUZUKI River in 2009 provided the initial push for a federal judicial inquiry. Now, four years later, the offspring of those salmon are returning to spawning grounds in dismally low numbers — so low that sockeye salmon fishery closures are widespread. What happened to Justice Bruce Cohen’s 75 carefully crafted recommendations to rebuild Pacific salmon? What will happen to the industry and communities that depend on them? The Cohen Commission took three years, 2,145 exhibits, 892 public submissions and 138 days of hearings with 180 witnesses to create its report. The David Suzuki Foundation worked with lawyers at

Ecojustice to provide research and testimony to help ensure the inquiry looked into problems within the current management system. With optimism that the federal government was taking the decline of wild salmon seriously, this independent and thorough review created a blueprint for action. What had become a contentious and polarizing issue had a direction forward. That clear direction, however, has been followed with near silence and little effort from the government. Although politicians say they’re reviewing the report and taking actions “consistent with the recommendations,” the few steps they have taken, such as providing grants for research projects, miss the mark and don’t address the significant issues and opportunities raised by Cohen. The government’s own Wild Salmon Policy, released in 2005, provides a strong template for salmon conservation and formed a key plank of Cohen’s recommendations. It’s time to bring this policy to life with a cost-itemized plan for determining tasks, delegated responsibility for carrying them out and defined timelines. The government hasn’t even appointed a champion to navigate the complex social, economic, ecological and political world of wild Pacific salmon. The commission concluded that climate change is one of most troubling stressors for the fish. Salmon are sensitive to water temperature changes and Fraser River waters are projected to warm. Canada must do its part to address climate change if fisheries management is to have any influence on the future of these amazing creatures and all those that depend on them.

came under the inquiry’s scrutiny. The Department of Fisheries and Oceans continues to both promote and regulate the salmon farming industry. Cohen recommended DFO separate these conflicting mandates and end its responsibility to promote farmed salmon. DFO should return to what it did well: gathering relevant scientific data, applying it and making it available to the public. Cohen called for a freeze on fish farm expansion in the Discovery Islands, along an important salmon migratory route, and removal of farms if impacts aren’t addressed by 2020. The commission interviewed British Columbians and received a clear message: don’t risk the future of wild salmon and their important contribution to the fabric of First Nations culture, coastal communities and the whole of Canadian life. A year has passed, the testimony is in, the evidence heard and $26 million spent. It’s time for action to rebuild wild Pacific salmon runs, so this iconic fish can be shared and enjoyed for generations to come. The fate of wild salmon is too important to be left to languish in government offices. We can’t go on setting up inquiries to review problems and then ignore their recommendations. This is a serious report with a clear blueprint to address problems. It deserves a serious response. As the salmon struggle to make their miraculous journey up B.C.’s wild rivers, we have to tell Prime Minster Stephen Harper and Fisheries Minister Gail Shea it’s time for the government to get moving too.

Suspension drive stalls in confusion BY THE CANADIAN PRESS


Suzanne Legault, Information Commissioner of Canada, speaks during a press conference at the National Press Theatre in Ottawa, Thursday Oct. 17, 2013, following the tabling of her annual report in the House of Commons. Legault has been flooded with fresh complaints that the Harper government is too often citing security to withhold documents requested under the Access to Information Act.

Flood of security-related complaints overwhelms staff of info watchdog

RCMP — refusing even to acknowledge the receipt of requests, much less respond to them. “I am seeing signs of a system in crisis, where departments are unable to fulfil even their most basic obligations under the Act,” Legault told a closed-door meeting of bureaucrats last month. Clement has countered that no previous government has released more material under the Access to Information Act, and that requests are becoming more complex. Under the Access to Information Act, every resident of Canada can request records from the federal government for a $5 application fee. More than 40,000 such requests are received each year, many of them subject to exemptions and long delays. The information commissioner acts as a watchdog, investigating complaints and occasionally taking the government to court, though she lacks order-making powers. Almost 1,600 complaints were received in 2012-2013. The office currently has 41 people in its investigations unit, eight of whom have been given special security clearance by the RCMP to probe sensitive government files. Increasing the number to 12 would require an amendment to the Access to Information Act.

OTTAWA — The Conservative drive to suspend three of its black-sheep senators without pay is sputtering amid an apparent difference of opinion between the prime minister and his leader in the Senate as Tories in the upper chamber seek to end debate on the sanctions. Sen. Claude Carignan has suggested he’s open to amending the measures against Sens. Patrick Brazeau and Pamela Wallin, though not Mike Duffy, following explosive allegations that he offered a backroom deal to Brazeau even as the prime minister publicly declared zero tolerance for the senators’ purported misdeeds. Carignan is slated to consult with the Conservative caucus in a closed-door meeting this morning about whether to amend the suspension proposals. Some Conservative senators, including Hugh Segal and Don Plett, the former president of the party, have complained that the move to suspend the senators ignores due process and the rule of law, a point Wallin also made in her remarks to the Senate last week. It’s all evidence of disarray among Conservatives that could create opportunities for those looking to defeat the suspension motions in the days to come. Jason MacDonald, a spokesman for Harper, denied Sunday that Carignan, the government’s Senate leader, was acting on behalf of the prime minister. “These senators have already been found by auditors to have claimed inappropriate expenses,” MacDonald said in an email. “We don’t direct the activities of the Senate and cannot comment on the discussions they have had or may be having. What I can say is that we remain firm on this important point: Senators who have already been found to have claimed inappropriate expenses should not be collecting a public paycheque.” On Parliament Hill on Friday, Brazeau said Carignan offered him a deal just hours earlier to receive lighter sanctions from the Senate in exchange for a public apology. Brazeau said Carignan pulled him aside outside the Senate chamber to make the offer. “The deal was, that if I stood in this chamber, apologized to Canadians and took responsibility for my actions, that my punishment would be lesser than what is being proposed,” Brazeau told the Senate. Carignan responded that his offer was one made out of “friendship,” adding he’d always been open to “friendly amendments.” “It’s like every motion, it could be amended,” Carignan later told reporters. “When we realize that if somebody apologized to Canadians a it’s something that we could take in account and perhaps change the motion. Or he could also move an amendment to say, look, I apologize and I want to reduce the sanction. He could do that. And it’s exactly what I said to him.” Senate Conservatives are aiming to end debate Monday on the controversial proposal to suspend the three senators. A motion, to be tabled three days before the Conservative party convention kicks off in Calgary, would impose a time allocation for the debate. James Cowan, Liberal Senate leader, has said he’s puzzled why his Conservative colleagues are trying to rush the process. All three senators, clearly angered by the government’s hard line, appeared before the Senate last week to make stunning allegations that they were victims of conspiracies, personal vendettas and were approached with backroom deals in attempts to lessen the PR damage to Conservatives. Duffy said he was threatened with expulsion from the Senate if he didn’t go along with the plan to repay his expenses. He added the prime minister himself ordered him to repay the money, something Harper confirmed. The prime minister also reiterated in the House of Commons that he had no knowledge that Nigel Wright, his former chief of staff, cut a $90,000 cheque to Duffy to pay the senator’s expenses although he acknowledged a few others did. If the suspension motions pass this week, the three senators — all of them currently under an RCMP investigation — would be without paycheques within days. Former Liberal Sen. Mac Harb quit the chamber in August amid his own alleged expenses improprieties and is also being investigated.

RECENT DETAINEES IN EGYPT DREW A LOT OF MEDIA ATTENTION; HUNDREDS MORE REMAIN IN PRISONS OUTSIDE CANADA BY THE CANADIAN PRESS MONTREAL — For nearly two months all eyes were turned to John Greyson and Tarek Loubani, the Canadian activists held in an Egyptian prison before being allowed to return to Canada. Two other detained Canadians, Greenpeace activists Alexandre Paul and Paul Ruzycki, have also been in the headlines as they remain held in a Russian prison and could face a lengthy prison sentence on piracy charges. But there are other Canadians detained abroad who don’t have such a network of supporters, and fail to capture similar public attention. Overall, 1,590 Canadians are in prison outside the country, according to figures provided by Canada’s Foreign Affairs department, accurate to Oct. 10. The bulk of them — 1,097 — are behind bars in the United States. The rest are in prisons in more than 85 other countries. Foreign Affairs wouldn’t provide a breakdown on the circumstances or duration of detention, nor how many cases the government is actively contesting. But human-rights groups continue to monitor a number of cases where they believe Canadians are being wrongly detained or have been the victim of human-rights violations. Often, it can take years to bring a Canadian back home. Earlier this month, Hamid Ghassemi-Shall was finally able to return to Canada after 64 months in an Iranian prison, including a year in solitary confinement. Ghassemi-Shall emigrated to Toronto, where he working as a shoe salesman, following Iran’s 1979 revolution. He was arrested on espionage charges while visiting his ailing mother in 2008, and faced the death penalty. International pressure, including a stream of letters from supporters to the Iranian government,

may have been a factor in helping to keep him alive, according to Amnesty International Canada. Each case “has a delicate strategy depending on the circumstances of the case,” said John Tackaberry, a spokesman for the human rights group. That can mean a public-relations blitz or, alternatively, working quietly behind the scenes. Most cases don’t get nearly as much attention as Greyson and Loubani did, Tackaberry said.

the federal government can offer in terms of assistance, according to one former Canadian diplomat. “All the Canadian government can do is ensure that the person in prison gets fair treatment under the laws of the country where they are,” said Eric Morse, now with the Royal Canadian Military Institute. “Anything else is strictly informal.” Many of the arrests involve drug-related charges, Morse said, and the arrested are often in shock at the situation they find themselves in. In an effort to dissuade others, the federal government has a collection of wrenching testimonials on its travel-advisory — ERIC MORSE, FORMER DILPOMAT website from Canadians caught trying to smuggle drugs overseas. Foreign Affairs Minister John Horror stories abound.

Side deal stalled BY THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA — Canada and the European Union are hoping the momentum of last week’s free-trade announcement will carry over into a troublesome side agreement. Sources close to the talks say the separate Strategic Partnership Agreement — which covers nontrade matters such as human rights — may get a shot in the arm from the recent signing in Brussels of the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement. Prime Minister Stephen Harper flew to the European capital Oct. 18 to sign an agreement-in-principle with European Commission president Jose Manuel Barroso. The far-ranging deal improves the exchange of goods, services, investment and labour. That capped four years of negotiations, but it’s expected it will take another 18 to 24 months to finish the fine print and ratify the pact. Both sides need to sell it to their member provinces and countries. The other piece of unfinished — and related — business is the Strategic Partnership Agreement, which Canada and Europe began negotiating in 2011 and has been linked to the broader trade and investment pact. Canada is balking at the inclusion of language in a final text that would refer to the importance of affirming human rights and non-proliferation efforts. The EU insists that all major agreements it negotiates contain language that promotes human rights and fights the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction — and it doesn’t want to make an exception for Canada. The EU’s new ambassador to Canada, Marie-Anne Coninsx, has said that the two pacts are linked and there won’t be a deal on one without the other. “We have the feeling that there’s more mutual understanding after the trip to Brussels,” a source close to the negotiations told The Canadian Press on the condition they not be identified. “It looks better, but nothing is agreed until everything is agreed.” Conservative cabinet ministers expressed optimism Friday the partnership will be made final. Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird said he met with Canada’s negotiators Friday and said he was encouraged, despite the fact “a few hurdles” remain. He did not elaborate. “I’m confident we can secure the strategic partnership,” Baird said. “I’m optimistic this won’t be any impediment to the trade deal going forward. We’re keen to conclude the discussions. “I hope it will be easier than the trade agreement itself.” International Trade Minister Ed Fast said “discussions at the very highest level” are continuing and have been productive. “There are very few issues yet to be resolved, and I believe at the very end of the day, we’ll be able to conclude that, as we have concluded the actual trade agreement itself.” Baird, Fast and several of their cabinet colleagues were active across the country last week, appearing at events to pump the free-trade deal.

Crafts prove to be very handy BY MYLES FISH ADVOCATE STAFF


Excitedly calling chainmaille armour “new and different” might not fit in the context of military history, but for the craft show circuit, it is a unique entrant that got Scott Gilroyed’s booth a lot of attention at the Our Best To You art and craft sale over the weekend. Gilroyed came out from Winnipeg especially for the popular sale held at Westerner Park, now in its 22nd year. He has been making the maille for the last eight years, and now with a partner runs Dragonwing Fashions in Winnipeg. Chainmaille shirts, which take about 50 hours to make and sell for upwards of $650, are popular among Medieval recreationists and those who do live action role-playing and cosplay. But the bikini tops and colourful jewelry Gilroyed had on display at the sale have drawn the eye of exotic dancers and others.

“It’s not just armour anymore. It can be clothing, and the jewelry is probably the mainstay of what we do,” he said. While his booth is also present at a number of comic conventions through the year, Gilroyed said his craft has been very well received on the craft show circuit as well. There were 210 exhibitors at the annual show, which features only products handmade in Canada. The show is juried to ensure an even mix of exhibitors among different categories, and show manager JoAnne Fahey said there are significant waiting lists in some disciplines. While there were a number of booths of art, clothing, food, and Christmas decor, only at Art Price’s booth could you grab yourself a ‘beer holster.’ The cowboy-hatted Calgarian came up with the idea back in 1995, but not as a means to keep near some suds. Rather,

he fashioned the initial leather beverage holder after having to deal with a mucky water bottle he could not hold onto while working outside. “A few of my neighbours said ‘Gee, that’s pretty handy, Art, maybe you could make me one.’ That started back in 1995 and now I’ve been doing it for 19 years. I’m semiretired and do about 10 shows a year. It’s a lot of fun,” he said. He said the holsters can be used to hold just about any beverage, while some handymen have used the holsters for holding drills or ranchers have used them to hold needle guns. At the Red Deer show, one woman even bought six of them for her and her bridesmaids to wear at an upcoming wedding. The one thing the holster won’t hold, though, is a handgun, a design element that fits right into Price’s way of life. “I’m into having fun, not making war,” he said with a hearty laugh.


Historic home is a popular tourist attraction BY PAUL COWLEY ADVOCATE STAFF The tinny sound of a venerable Victrola provided a welcoming serenade at Lacombe’s Michener House Museum. To walk through the door is to step back more than a century to when the Rev. Edward Michener and his wife Mary moved to this small farming community of 100 people and set up home in the Methodist parsonage. Less than a year later, in April 1900, son Roland was born. He would become one of Canada’s most popular governors general, a post he held from 1967 until his retirement from public life in 1974. While Michener only lived in the house for a short time as a baby, it remained connected to him and was named a Provincial Historic Resource in 1977. About seven years earlier, the local Chamber of Commerce had expressed interest in preserving the home, which had seen additions and many renovations over the years. A society was formed the following year and several years of renovations began in 1980. The home was opened to the public as a museum in May 1984. Paintings by Mary Michener grace the walls of the living room, which has been redecorated with period furniture and restored with the decorating tastes of the day. Upstairs, there are a number of showcases recounting Michener’s fascinating life. A gifted student and athlete, Michener had the highest academic standing in the province when he graduated from the University of Alberta in 1920. He had taken a short break to join the fledgling air force in 1918, but the war ended before he finished his training. He was named a Rhodes Scholar and studied at Oxford, finishing in 1923 with degrees in civil law and jurisprudence. Michener’s career in law led to a political career that saw him hold provincial office and he later entered federal politics, winning as representative for a Toronto riding in 1953. He later became House Speaker. Michener and his party were defeated

The birthplace of the late governor general Roland Michener, the historic home is a popular stop for tourists. in 1963 and in 1964 he was appointed Canadian high commissioner to India and the following year he became ambassador to Nepal. As governor general, Michener was immensely popular and known as Canada’s jogging governor general for his fitness regimen. It became such a trademark that political cartoons of the day depicted him in jogging clothes, says museum guide Sayde Vockeroth. Showcases upstairs have a number of items from Michener’s life, including his air force cap, family photos and other mementoes. There are a number of furnishings that date back to when the Micheners lived in the house. Michener managed to track down the bed he was born in and other bedroom furnishings, which had been sold a couple of times over the years and were traced to B.C. A staircase and upstairs floors are also original. A church organ in the living room once played in the now-gone Methodist church that was located next to the house. Vockeroth, a Red Deer College first-year education student, has been guiding tours of the home since she was in Grade 9. “It’s always nice to have visitors who are really excited about it,” she says. “Everybody loves the record player and the organ.” Among her favourite artifacts is a unique cooking pot divided into three sections so

several items could be prepared at once. “We should still have something like that,” she says with a laugh. “As a college student, it would be nice.” Michener always had the air of a gentlemen. Even as a young man, he preferred fairly formal clothes. “He was a always very clean cut, properlooking man,” she said. Vockeroth admires how Michener brought a very clear-eyed view of the role of the governor general as the Queen’s representative in Canada. The museum is a frequent stopping point for local visitors. “During the summer, we’re actually really busy,” she says. Even on cold winter Saturdays, it is not uncommon for a dozen people to pass through. Among those visiting recently were George Geddie, and his wife Heather and his sister Heather. “I absolutely loved it, “ said sister Helen. “The place has such a wonderful energy and spirit.” George was captivated by the warbling Victrola. “It instantly transported us back to the Zeigfeld Follies girls dancing.” The Michener House Museum is open Saturdays over the winter from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. but is closed over lunch. It can also be visited by appointment. Call 403-782-3933. Admission is free but donations are welcomed.

Surplus stirs watchdog’s interest FEDERAL GOVERNMENT’S $7-BILLION BUDGET SURPRISE TO BE INVESTIGATED BY THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA — The surprising revelation last week that Ottawa is almost $7 billion ahead of schedule for eliminating the deficit is attracting the scrutiny of the budget watchdog. The No. 2 man in the Parliamentary Budget Office says officials have asked the Finance Department for clarification. “We’ll look at it because it will affect our own numbers, and try and figure out what the source of it is,” says Mostafa Askari. “There’s a part we still don’t understand ... as to why departments spent less than what they were expected to ... and why they (Finance) didn’t see it in March,” when the budget was tabled. In a report last week, the government pegged the deficit for the 201213 fiscal year at $18.9 billion, rather

than the $25.9 billion estimated in the March budget. The lion’s share of the difference — about $4.9 billion — came from lower program spending, including on the public service.

tives heading into an election year. The Conservatives have promised to introduce income splitting for tax purposes once the budget is balanced, a measure likely to boost the party’s chances in the scheduled 2015 election.

Nash says she believes Prime Minister Stephen Harper has issued orders to get the budget balanced as quickly as possible to load his campaign platform with goodies, noting that in this month’s throne speech, the government pledged more restraint.

Regulators look at making financial services fees more transparent BY THE CANADIAN PRESS TORONTO — The fees Canadians pay to invest in mutual funds are under scrutiny as the national securities regulator reviews whether the often used embedded compensation system is in the best interest of investors. Earlier this year, Australia and the U.K. banned so-called “trailing commissions” in their financial services industries following two massive fraud scandals. While industry and consumer advocates in Canada are at odds over whether such a ban would meet the aim of increased transparency in the industry, they do agree change is needed. “It is very confusing for consumers right now,” said Jonathan Bishop, a research analyst with the Ottawa-based Public Interest Advocacy Centre. In Canada, mutual fund and investment advisers can be paid by their clients in a number of ways,

including an hourly rate or a flat fee. Most commonly, however, they are paid through an embedded fee system, usually a predetermined percentage taken directly from a client’s total investments. This amount, called a management expense ratio (MER) is set by fund companies and is generally around 2.5 per cent annually. It covers a variety of fees including the adviser’s cut, which ranges around one per cent. The industry has been criticized for a lack of regulation when it comes to disclosing embedded fees to consumers. Not all investors are aware of how much they pay in these fees, because they’re not billed, or know that other payment options are available. The Canadian Securities Administrators, responsible for securities regulations across the country, recently addressed the disclosure issue by requiring investors to be given a breakdown

of embedded fees and the services they cover for each quarter. This requirement will be fully implemented by July 2016. The Ontario Securities Commission is planning a formal review of the fee system, the services available and whether further regulations are needed. During the summer, it collected feedback from a public forum it held with industry stakeholders. “Any step towards disclosure is a positive approach,” said Bishop, adding that the Public Interest Advocacy Centre would prefer to see embedded compensation in place until the industry can find “common ground” on the best approach for consumers. PIAC suggests stiffer regulations on how advisers describe the services they offer, and the cost. It also wants scheduled meetings between advisers and clients to discuss their portfolios and fees.

TORONTO — The Toronto stock market looks set to build on strong gains racked up so far in October as traders prepared for another heavy week of earnings news from some of the biggest Canadian corporations. Investors will also look to the U.S. Federal Reserve’s next interest rate meeting for clues as to when the Fed might start ratcheting back on key stimulus involving the monthly purchase of US$85 billion of bonds. While the battered Canadian currency could find some support after Statistics Canada releases its latest take on economic growth. The Toronto Stock Exchange racked up a gain of 1.25 per cent last week, the fourth straight advance for a market that had largely stalled for much of this year, dragged down primarily by base and precious metal stocks. But a slew of positive earnings reports and the feeling that the global economic recovery continues to improve has taken the TSX to its highest levels since the summer of 2011, leaving it up seven per cent year-to-date. And that advance has occurred during what is historically one of the worst months of the year for equity markets. “It is a pretty good environment for the next two or three months,” said Sadiq Adatia, chief investment officer at Sun Life Global Investment. “Equity markets are moving higher, bond yields have come off a little bit and it’s kind of, without jinxing it, the perfect environment right now.” But he cautions that the mood will grow more cautious at the beginning of 2014 ahead of another round of wrangling about U.S. government funding and raising the debt ceiling again. Last week featured positive reports from big mining companies, including Teck Resources (TSX:TCK.B) and Goldcorp (TSX:G). This week, some of the biggest energy companies will take their turn as traders look to Suncor Energy (TSX:SU) and Canadian Oil Sands (TSX:COS) on Tuesday while Imperial Oil (TSX:IMO) posts results on Wednesday. “We have seen oil prices be high for most of the quarter, coming off a bit over the last little while,” Adatia said. Prices held on close to US$110 for most of the quarter, inflated somewhat by geopolitical anxiety centred on Syria. “But they have been pretty high, and probably more than expected, so it will be interesting to see how they translate that into earnings,” he said. Other major companies reporting include transportation giant Bombardier (TSX:BBD.B) and First Quantum Minerals (TSX:FM) on Thursday. Meanwhile, there will be more speculation about what the Fed might want to do about tapering its asset purchases as the central bank meets Wednesday. Traders had thought the Fed would move last month to start winding up those purchases but the central bank surprised markets by leaving its latest instalment of quantitative easing intact.

Canadians unprepared for the unexpected



It doesn’t seem to matter whether it’s setting aside money for an emergency or saving for retirement, Canadians just don’t appear to be financially prepared for many of life’s eventualities. BMO Bank of Montreal’s third annual rainy day survey, for example, recently found that while 66 per cent of Canadians feel financially prepared to handle a rainy day, the majority (51 per cent) have less than $10,000 in savings to cover unexpected expenses, 20 per cent have up to $5,000, 14 per cent have between $5,000 and $9,999 and 17

per cent have less than $1,000. Eighteen per cent of Canadians have set aside $50,000 or more for a rainy day. Many financial experts and advisers recommend setting aside up to six months of your income for possible emergencies. “Financial emergencies, such as a broken furnace or major car repairs, can crop up at any time, and without some form of financial cushion can potentially cause households to take on more debt than is necessary,” said Janet Peddigrew, BMO vice-president.

A BMO Wealth Institute report found that even with a financial plan, very few Canadians have considered how major unforeseen events could affect their lifestyle and financial situation. Eighty-four per cent believe that a disability would cause the biggest financial problem for them, followed by a separation or divorce, declining health of a spouse or partner, and the death of a spouse or partner.

PLAN: Can be helpful “A financial plan can be very helpful in ensuring you are well-prepared for life’s milestones — such as buying a house, saving for a child’s education, and retirement — but one of the biggest mistakes individuals make is not stress-testing that plan against unforeseen events that can cause financial derailments,” said Chris Buttigieg, senior manager of wealth planning strategy with BMO Financial Group. “By working with a financial professional who understands the potential impact of life events, such as job loss or disability, Canadians can develop a more practical and proactive plan that provides greater peace of mind.” The loss of income, drawing down on savings and high medical costs caused by a disability or illness can quickly add up and become a financial burden on a spouse or family. BMO suggests that people set up an emergency fund to cover costs during a short-term disability, put money into a tax free savings account for future needs, and consider disability, income replacement, long-term care and critical illness insurance to reduce the impact on finances. The premature death of a spouse or partner can have a huge impact on your financial situation. Many people will turn to insurance, the government, employer group insurance and personal savings to cover the shortfall. However, they should also review their financial plan, beneficiary designations, will and power of attorneys, and buy term insurance to cover costs that have a short time period, such as a remaining mortgage, an education fund for children or income replacement. They should also consider permanent insurance to cover longer term needs and build up savings on a tax-deferred basis. A key to financially surviving the often difficult process of obtaining a divorce is to have your financial house in order. Seventy per cent of Canadians are financially unprepared to withstand a separation or divorce, with 57 per cent relying on personal savings to support their new lifestyle. BMO suggests reviewing and updating your financial plan, updating beneficiary designations on life insurance policies, employee group insurance, RRSPs and TFSAs, getting legal advice on wills and power of attorneys and adjusting them as necessary, switching jointly-owned assets to single ownership, determining if any new or additional insurance coverage is necessary, and updating credit and eliminating responsibilities or guarantees.

SURPLUSES: Putting a squeeze to the system In Martin’s case, the sizes of surpluses were underestimated, a practice Harper and Flaherty have criticized and pledged to end. But former PBO Kevin Page, who has quarrelled with Flaherty in the past, said he doesn’t believe the minister is deliberately under-promising on the fiscal numbers. Page said during the Martin restraint years in the 1990s, officials cut capital expenditures, such as maintenance and upgrades of equipment, but that proved a false economy in the long run. The move only delayed spending to later years and often increased costs. “I’d worry about the prime minister and finance minister saying there’s too much money in the system, just put the squeeze to it, we don’t care how, because we’re not going to the election in 2015 with some kind of deficit,” he said. That is becoming increasingly unlikely given the new deficit level, says Scotiabank senior economist Mary Webb, who specializes in federal and provincial finances. She says the current, lower starting point of $18.9 billion means Flaherty can do much better than the $18.7-billion level he was supposed to get to this fiscal year, which runs to March, making the final leap to balance 2014-2015 possible. Webb notes that in the March budget, Ottawa forecast the deficit shrinking by $12 billion between the 2013-14 and 2014-15 fiscal years. “Let’s take an optimistic scenario and say the deficit is down to $10 billion after this year, then the question is can they cut $10 billion in one year. Well they were going to, so why not?” For that to happen, all would need to go well for the government, she said. And Flaherty himself has noted Ottawa is facing additional costs this year as a result of the Lac-Megantic train derailment and Alberta flooding. But the minister has also included a sizable $3-billion cushion for “risk” in his projections, so Ottawa is that much closer each year than it is reporting. Webb says the federal government typically “outperforms its deficit target,” so although unlikely, she says there may be another Flaherty surprise down the road.

EMBEDDED: Driven by market Ed Skwarek with Advocis, a group which represents 11,000 financial advisers across the country, said demand for the embedded compensation system is driven by the market. “It’s always been that way; since inception,” he said. Skwarek, who will join a panel discussion Monday on the issue at the annual Advocis Regulatory Affairs Symposium in Toronto, said the bans overseas may have been aimed at making the fee system more transparent but has pushed some investors out of the market. “With the switch that has taken place, they’re cutting out a large segment of people who aren’t investing because they can’t afford it,” he said, referring to rates for advisers that can average $300 an hour, or flat rates of between $1,000 and $3,000. But the Small Investor Protection Association, a national non-profit organization, said consumers would get a better deal if embedded compensation were to be banned because the increased competition would raise the quality of advice and products. “Even if it (the fees) were a little more expensive, the advice would be pure, would be tailored to that person and be in their interest,” said chair Ken Kivenko, whose group represents members with an average net worth of $500,000. He likened some financial advisers in the embedded fee system to “salesmen,” as their fees are derived from the sale of products such as mutual funds. “How much advice are you really getting?,” he said. If they (advisers) don’t make a sale, then they don’t eat. Is that advice?“ “Our members, there’s no question about it, they feel like they are being screwed,” he said.


This Sept. 13, 2013, file photo shows a Twitter App and stock tracker on an iPhone, in Koln, Germany. Twitter’s stock debut is the biggest coming-out party since Facebook, and the New York Stock Exchange has won the fight to host it.

NYSE holds successful dry run to prepare for Twitter IPO AIMING TO AVOID FACEBOOK FIASCO BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The New York Stock Exchange says its test run of Twitter’s initial public offering on Saturday was a success, as the exchange takes pains to avoid the technical problems that marred Facebook’s debut. While the NYSE frequently does testing on the weekend, this was the first time the exchange conducted a mock IPO. Early Saturday, traders from member firms gathered with NYSE staff to run simulated buy and sell orders, test the flow of those orders and open the stock. “This morning’s systems test was successful, and we’re grate-

ful to all the firms that chose to participate,” NYSE spokeswoman Marissa Arnold said in a statement. “We are being very methodical in our planning for Twitter’s IPO, and are working together with the industry to ensure a world class experience for Twitter, retail investors and all market participants.” Twitter will be the biggest technology IPO since Facebook went public in May 2012. While Nasdaq won Facebook’s listing, one of the biggest IPOs in years, the debut was hit with trading delays and order failures. The Securities and Exchange Commission later fined Nasdaq $10 million, the largest sum ever

levied against an exchange. Twitter, which is expected to go public sometime before Thanksgiving, has chosen to list on the New York Stock Exchange. It plans to sell 70 million shares between $17 and $20 each for a possible take of $1.6 billion. Shares will trade under the ticker “TWTR.” This year has been a hot one for IPOs as sharp gains in the stock market have boosted demand for initial public offerings. Over 150 companies have gone public in the U.S. this year, up more than 50 per cent from the same period in 2012, according to recent data from IPO tracking firm Renaissance Capital.

First passengers arrive at Dubai’s new airport PART OF ITS AMBITIONS TO DOMINATE AIR TRAVEL BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — A flight carrying a little more than 100 passengers from Budapest touched down Sunday at Dubai’s new Al Maktoum International Airport, a modest first arrival for a terminal designers hope will be the world’s largest in just 10 years. The United Arab Emirates’ most flashy city-state, known for its high-flying ambitions, already gave the new airport the code DWC for Dubai World Central. The name mirrors Dubai’s vision of itself as a connection point between east and west. The airport’s construction and development is forecast to cost more than $32 billion.

When complete, it will have five runways capable of handling 160 million passengers a year. About 63 per cent of that will be people in transit, said Dubai Airports CEO Paul Griffiths at the inauguration of the new passenger terminal. Aviation comprises 28 per cent of Dubai’s gross domestic product, some $22 billion a year. Much of the current revenue comes from Dubai International Airport, which is the fourth busiest airport in the world serving around 57 million passengers last year. That airport, though, is expected to reach its full capacity of 90 million passenger by 2020. The new Al Maktoum International Airport is an attempt to hold Dubai’s edge in the market. “There is a lot of pressure to

get the airport running,” Griffiths said. “Its ambition is to be the world’s largest airport and the world’s largest hub.” Dubai’s pivotal location on the eastern tip of the Arabian Peninsula makes it a gateway from Europe to the east, said Josef Varadi, CEO of the privately-owned Hungarian Wizz Air. His company’s passenger flight was the first to arrive at the new airport. The airport has been open since 2010 to cargo flights. Around 36 freight operators regularly operate at the airport. However, with just three agreements signed with passenger airlines, DWC still has miles to go before it rivals other destinations.

Appetite for lumber growing THE CANADIAN PRESS There’s no sign that China’s appetite for lumber is waning despite its somewhat slower economic growth, according a top executive of West Fraser Timber who sees demand remaining strong not only for his company but for other producers as well. West Fraser (TXX:WFT) vice-president Chris McIver says the Vancouver-based company has shifted its sales efforts inland from China’s coastal markets because it believes there’s still plenty of demand for lumber. “There’s tremendous need for lumber, whether it’s from us or from elsewhere in the world,” McIver said in a recent interview. “So (China’s) overall economic growth may slow, but we don’t see demand for our product slowing. In fact we see it growing.” Analysts expect West Fraser’s adjusted profit for the third quarter will

increase six per cent from a year ago to $1.35 per share, according to estimates compiled by Thomson Reuters. The company issues its earnings after markets close Monday. Canfor Corp. (TSX:CFP) and Acadian Timber Corp. (TSX:ADN), also based in Vancouver, issue their results Wednesday after markets close. West Fraser, one of Canada’s largest lumber producers, began exporting more of its production to the Asia-Pacific region after 2007 — when U.S. demand collapsed along with that country’s housing market. About 30 per cent of its Canadian production is currently exported to


China, Japan and Korea, compared with just five to eight per cent in 2007, when Japan was West Fraser’s main Asian market. Although U.S. housing industry has finally begun to recover from one of its deepest recessions on record, West Fraser Timber doesn’t foresee a drop in Canadian shipments to China. The world’s secondlargest economy grew by 7.8 per cent in the third quarter and the central government in Beijing aims to keep growth above 7.5 per cent. That’s barely half of the 14.2 per cent China’s expansion in 2009, but far above what’s expected in the Canada, the

United States, Europe or Japan. McIver said challenges remain in central B.C. because of mountain pine beetle infestations but the industry is in better shape than it was five or six years ago. “It was pretty much a depression in our industry but we are very encouraged about the future and the future for our employees and the future for prospective employees.” Shipments of B.C. softwood lumber to China are on track to set a new record in 2013. For the first eight months through August, shipments were running 2.4 per cent higher than 2012.

Republicans have questions READY TO QUESTION SEBELIUS ABOUT TROUBLED ROLLOUT OF HEALTH CARE LAW BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON — Republicans said Sunday they intend to press Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius on the Obama administration’s troubled launch of, the online portal to buy health insurance, the linchpin of the president’s signature legislative achievement. The Obama administration will face intense pressure next week to be more forthcoming about how many people have actually succeeded in enrolling for coverage in the new insurance markets. Medicare chief Marilyn Tavenner is to testify during a House hearing on Tuesday, followed Wednesday by Sebelius before the House Energy and Commerce Committee. The officials will also be grilled on how such crippling technical problems could have gone undetected prior to the website’s Oct. 1 launch. “The incompetence in building this website is staggering,” said Rep. Marsha Blackburn, the second ranking Republican on the panel and an opponent of the law. Democrats said the new system needed time to get up and running, and it could be fixed to provide millions of people with affordable insurance. Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear, a Democrat, said the system was “working in Kentucky,” a state that has dealt with “some of the worst health statistics in the country ... The only way we’re going to get ourselves out of the ditch is some transformational tool,” like the new health insurance system. Some states such as Kentucky have set up their own online exchanges which appear to be working better than the federal website which covers three dozen states. Many Republican-led states refused to set up their own exchanges because their governors op-

pose the health care overhaul, claiming it will cost jobs and increase government spending. The marketplaces are the gateway to obtaining health insurance under the new health care law, which requires most Americans to have coverage by Jan. 1. Middle-class people who don’t have insurance on the job can purchase a private plan with new tax credits to make the premiums more affordable. Low-income people will be steered to an expanded version of Medicaid — the government-funded program that provides health care coverage for the poor — in states that agree to extend the safety net program. The U.S. has been the only major developed country without a national health care system, and the overhaul was supposed to change that. The system is not the centralized, government-run setup seen in places like Britain and instead uses various ways to require or encourage Americans to get private or, for the poor or elderly, government-provided insurance. What’s become known as “Obamacare” is the closest the U.S. has ever come to universal health care after a century of efforts, and it has been under heavy attack by opposition Republicans from the start. Now, with congressional elections coming next year, Republicans are using the troubled launch of the government website to regain momentum after their effort to defund Obamacare led to a 16-day partial government shutdown. Blackburn said she wanted to know much has been spent on the website, how much more it will cost to fix the problems, when everything will be ready and what people should expect to see on the site. Blackburn and Republican Rep. Mike Rogers also raised questions of whether the website could guard the


In this Oct. 21, 2013, photo, U.S. President Barack Obama, standing with supporters of his health care law, speaks in the White House Rose Garden in Washington about the problem ridden rollout of his health care overhaul. For nearly five years, Republicans have struggled to make a scandal stick to Obama’s White House. One by one, the controversies with shorthand names like Solyndra, Benghazi, and Fast and Furious, hit a fever pitch, then faded away. But the disastrous rollout of his signature health care law may be a problem with the kind of staying power Republicans have sought. privacy of applicants. “The way the system is designed it is not secure,” said Rogers, who is chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. The administration sought to reassure applicants about their personal information. HHS spokeswoman Joanne Peters said when consumers fill out their applications, “they can trust that the information they’re providing is protected by stringent security standards and that the technology underlying the application process has been tested and is secure.” The botched rollout has led to calls on Capitol Hill for a

delay of penalties for those remaining uninsured. The Obama administration has said it’s willing to extend the grace period until Mar. 31, the end of open enrolment. That’s an extra six weeks. The insurance industry says going beyond that risks undermining the new system by giving younger, healthier people a pass. Their premiums are needed to offset the increased cost of covering older people with pre-existing conditions who now cannot be turned down for insurance. Several Democratic senators are among those calling for a delay to the penalty for noncompliance. Sen. Joe Man-

chin, who is seeking a yearlong delay to the penalty for noncompliance, said his approach would “still induce people to get involved, but it will also give us the time to transition in. And I think we need that transition period to work out the things.” The administration was under no legal requirement to launch the website Oct 1. Sebelius, who designated her department’s Medicare agency to implement the health care law, had the discretion to set open enrolment dates. Officials could have postponed open enrolment by a month, or they could have phased in access to the website.

Cousin arrested after murder UK braces for severe storm with of mom and four kids in NYC strong winds, possible flooding BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK — A Chinese immigrant who neighbours said struggled to survive in America was arrested Sunday on five counts of murder in the stabbing deaths of his cousin’s wife and her four children in their Brooklyn home — using a butcher knife. The suspect, 25-year-old Mingdong Chen, implicated himself in the killings late Saturday in the Sunset Park neighbourhood, police said. “They were cut and butchered with a kitchen knife,” said Chief of Department Philip Banks III. Two girls, 9-year-old Linda Zhuo and 7-year-old Amy Zhuo, were pronounced dead at the scene, along with the youngest child, 1-year-old William Zhuo. Their brother, 5-year-old Kevin Zhuo, and 37-year-old mother, Qiao Zhen Li, were taken to hospitals, where they also were pronounced dead. Chen is a cousin of the children’s father and had been staying at the home for the past week or so, Banks said. He came to the United States from China in 2004 and seemingly struggled to make it, Banks said. “Ever since he came to this country, everybody seems to be doing better than him,” he said. On Saturday night, Chen had apparently been acting in such a way that concerned Li, Banks said. She tried to call her husband, who wasn’t home, but couldn’t reach him. Banks said Li called her mother-inlaw in China, who also was unsuccessful in reaching her son. The motherin-law reached out to her daughter,

who lives in the neighbourhood, Banks said. She and her husband came to the house and banged on the door, then called police. Officers in the area investigating another matter responded, Banks said. “It’s a scene you’ll never forget,” he said. The victims had wounds in their necks and torsos. Chen was in custody and wasn’t immediately available to comment. He also faces counts of assault on a police officer, which happened while he was being processed, and resisting arrest, Banks said. Bob Madden, who lives nearby, was out walking his dog when he saw a man being escorted from the building by police. He was barefoot, wearing jeans, and “he was staring, he was expressionless,” Madden said. Yuan Gao, a cousin of the mother, said the man had recently moved to the area and had been staying with different people. Fire department spokesman Jim Long said emergency workers responded just before 11 p.m. to an emergency call from a person stabbed at the residence in Sunset Park, a working-class neighbourhood of adjoining two-story brick buildings with a large Chinese community. Neighbour May Chan told the Daily News it was “heartbreaking” to learn of the deaths. “I always see (the kids) running around here,” Chan said. “They run around by my garage playing. They run up and down screaming.”

BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LONDON — The worst storm in several years was forecast to hit the U.K. on Sunday, bringing heavy rain, hurricane-force gusts and the expectation of flooding and transport disruption. As winds picked up and Britain prepared for the storm — dubbed St. Jude and Stormageddon on social networks — major sports events such as a regular NFL game in London between the San Francisco 49ers and Jacksonville Jaguars at Wembley Stadium kicked off regardless. Prime Minister David Cameron told government agencies to ensure that contingency plans are made for transportation, schools and power supplies during the storm, which could have gusts stronger than 80 mph (128 kph) — akin to those in hurricanes. Britain does not get hurricanes due to its geographic location. The storm is expected to move across the country and head out over the North Sea by this afternoon. Britain’s Met Office said it could cause widespread and severe disruption from falling trees, power cuts and flooding.

Martin Young, the Met Office’s chief forecaster, said that while the storm is “major” for the U.K., its winds are not expected to be as strong as those seen in the “Great Storm of 1987, which saw gusts of 115 mph (185 kph) and left 18 people dead. Ahead of Sunday’s storm, Heathrow Airport warned travellers to expect delays. Rail networks cancelled many trains preemptively up through Monday morning, citing the high risk of trees and other debris expected to fall on train lines. Once the so-called St. Jude storm — named after the patron saint of lost causes — passes through Britain, it is expected to hit parts of the Nordics this afternoon. The Danish Meteorological Institute issued a warning, saying winds of hurricane-strength are expected in some parts of Denmark and heightened water levels in western Jutland near the town Esbjerg. The Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute also issued a warning, saying it expects hurricanestrength winds to hit southern and western Sweden on Monday evening, potentially causing damage and disruptions to travel services.

Iconic punk poet dead at 71 BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


Sarah Vaughan in 1963. She would perform the coolest rendition of the coolest song ever a decade later.

The coolest song ever sung SARAH VAUGHAN’S VERSION OF SUMMERTIME BY DAVID HAGLUND ADVOCATE NEWS SERVICES Among the various totems of cool, from dark shades to dance moves, none are as essential to the whole concept as popular songs. More often than not, though, when people describe a song as cool — which, of course, they continue to do every day — they mean that the musicians who play it seem cool to them or that you would be a lot cooler if you liked it. Pop songs themselves are rarely cool. They’re hot — lustful, angry, sad, boastful, celebratory. Passionate, in one way or another. A huge proportion of pop songs are love songs, which insist on the singer’s need or desire for another person. But coolness is not about need and desire. It’s even-keeled. Unflappable. As Carl Wilson has pointed out in Slate, the term cool itself, in its contemporary usage, is often credited, correctly or otherwise, to Lester Young, a sax player, and its arrival in the mainstream was signaled by the Miles Davis album Birth of the Cool and the West Side Story number simply titled Cool. But before Davis’ dad gave his son a trumpet and before Sondheim and Bernstein got near Romeo and Juliet, George Gershwin wrote a pop aria that captured “cool” better than any song that has come since. It’s called Summertime, and you’ve heard it a thousand times. You’ve also heard it by a thousand people: Last year The New York Times said that there were more than 25,000 different recordings of the tune. That would mean a new one had been made nearly every day since the song was first performed

in 1935. I’m not sure I believe that. But rest assured that many, many people have recorded this song, and some of them were cooler than others. None of them were cooler than Sarah Vaughan. And her imperfect, more-thanonce interrupted performance of the tune at the Cascais Jazz Festival in 1973 demonstrates the song’s underlying coolness as well as any rendition I’ve seen or heard. “Summertime” is ostensibly a lullaby; it’s sung to a baby, after all, whom the singer tells to “hush,” in the traditional fashion. Among the songs that seem to have shaped it are All My Trials, itself based on a lullaby from the Bahamas and an inspiration for the lyrics, and Pipi-pipipee, a Yiddish lullaby. (A Ukrainian lullaby, Oi Khodyt Son Kolo Vikon, has also been suggested as a possible source.) Some slower versions of the song emphasize its sleepiness: Ella Fitzgerald was wont to perform it this way, for instance, and so was R.E.M., though not as often. Others elicit its melancholy undertow: Mahalia Jackson, who recorded it as a medley with another of its musical sources, Motherless Child, did a sad Summertime that cannot be outdone. Vaughan’s version is cooler, sexier. And when she sang it in Portugal in 1973, at that now-defunct jazz festival founded by the fado singer João Braga and inaugurated by Miles Davis (among others) two years before, the song’s coolness saved her performance from a bevy of frustrations. Vaughan opens by nodding to the conditions she’s dealing with. “It’s summertime, and the livin’ ain’t easy,” she sings. (Somewhere, Big Daddy Kane sympathizes.) But then she casually rubs the head of a camera-

man trying to sneak by her — the filming of the concert appears to be causing many of her problems — and blows a kiss at someone in the crowd after laughing off a bad bit of feedback. She then has to stop and do something that is, in theory, decidedly uncool: “Watch me,” she tells the crowd, “Look at me.” She gets four more words out before having to stop again and explain to everyone how hard it is for everyone on stage that night. Summertime was originally composed for two (fictional) black women, but it was written by two white men: the Jewish George Gershwin and the South Carolinian Edwin Dubose Heyward, who created the characters, Clara and Bess, who sing it, and composed the lyrics. When the opera it’s a part of, Porgy and Bess, was first performed, Duke Ellington denounced it for Gershwin’s lampblack Negroisms. But he came around. And Summertime, which mixed folk and blues and jazz and old Jewish lullabies, and originally aimed to bring peace and quiet to Catfish Row, has been masterfully done for decades by black as well as white performers, by Africans and Americans and by people from every other inhabited continent as well, so far as I can tell. If, as seems likely, the idea of cool as it’s come down to us originated among black Americans and involves dealing with impossible difficulty, then Summertime is it, as much as any song could probably be. And Vaughan, who never cared for musical boundaries, and who could make her way through the song despite anything that might befall or bedevil her, is the coolest. David Haglund writes for Slate.

NEW YORK — Lou Reed, the great punk poet of rock n’ roll who profoundly influenced generations of musicians as leader of the Velvet Underground and remained a vital solo performer for decades after, died Sunday at 71. Reed died in Southampton, N.Y., of an ailment related to his recent liver transplant, according to his literary agent, Andrew Wylie, who added that Reed had been in frail health for months. Reed shared a home in Southampton with his wife and fellow musician, Laurie Anderson, whom he married in 2008. Reed never approached the commercial success of such superstars as the Beatles and Bob Dylan, but no songwriter to emerge after Dylan so radically expanded the territory of rock Lou Reed lyrics. And no band did more than the Velvet Underground to open rock music to the avant-garde — to experimental theatre, art, literature and film, to William Burroughs and Kurt Weill, to John Cage and Andy Warhol, Reed’s early patron. Indie rock essentially begins in the 1960s with Reed and the Velvets; the punk, New Wave and alternative rock movements of the 1970s, ’80s and ’90s were all indebted to Reed, whose songs were covered by R.E.M., Nirvana, Patti Smith and countless others. “The first Velvet Underground record sold 30,000 copies in the first five years,” Brian Eno, who produced albums by Roxy Music and Talking Heads among others, once said. “I think everyone who bought one of those 30,000 copies started a band!” Reed’s trademarks were a monotone of surprising emotional range and power; slashing, grinding guitar; and lyrics that were complex, yet conversational, designed to make you feel as if Reed were seated next to you. Known for his cold stare and gaunt features, he was a cynic and a seeker who seemed to embody downtown Manhattan culture of the 1960s and ’70s and was as essential a New York artist as Martin Scorsese or Woody Allen. Reed’s New York was a jaded city of drag queens, drug addicts and violence, but it was also as wondrous as any Allen comedy, with so many of Reed’s songs explorations of right and wrong and quests for transcendence. He had one top 20 hit, Walk On the Wild Side, and many other songs that became standards among his admirers, from Heroin and Sweet Jane to Pale Blue Eyes and All Tomorrow’s Parties. Raised on doo-wop and Carl Perkins, Delmore Schwartz and the Beats, Reed helped shape the punk ethos of raw power, the alternative rock ethos of irony and droning music and the art-rock embrace of experimentation, whether the dual readings of Beat-influenced verse for Murder Mystery, or, like a passage out of Burroughs’ Naked Lunch, the orgy of guns, drugs and oral sex on the Velvets’ 15-minute Sister Ray. An outlaw in his early years, Reed would eventually perform at the White House, have his writing published in The New Yorker, be featured by PBS in an American Masters documentary and win a Grammy in 1999 for Best Long Form Music Video. The Velvet Underground was inducted into the Rock and Roll of Fame in 1996 and their landmark debut album, The Velvet Underground & Nico, was added to the Library of Congress’ registry in 2006. Reed called one song Growing Up in Public and his career was an ongoing exhibit of how any subject could be set to rock music — the death of a parent (Standing On Ceremony), AIDS (The Halloween Parade), some favourite movies and plays (Doin’ the Things That We Want To), racism (I Want to be Black), the electroshock therapy he received as a teen (Kill Your Sons). Reviewing Reed’s 1989 topical album New York, Village Voice critic Robert Christgau wrote that “the pleasure of the lyrics is mostly tone and delivery — plus the impulse they validate, their affirmation that you can write songs about this stuff. Protesting, elegizing, carping, waxing sarcastic, forcing jokes, stating facts, garbling what he just read in the Times, free-associating to doomsday, Lou carries on a New York conversation — all that’s missing is a disquisition on real estate.”

Rebels get back to work GO THROUGH HARD PRACTICE IN EFFORT TO END FOUR-GAME LOSING STREAK BY GREG MEACHEM ADVOCATE SPORTS EDITOR The Red Deer Rebels were back at work Sunday, but without their sticks. The Rebels were on the Centrium ice, skating, skating . . . “We had a tough practice today, but we have to get our work ethic back to where it needs to be,” said Rebels GM/head coach Brent Sutter, without using the term ‘bagskate’. “If we want to get back into the win column, we have to earn wins. You have to earn what you get and right now we’re not earning anything.” Indeed, the Rebels have squandered the large majority of a seven-game homestand that concludes Wednesday versus the Kootenay Ice. In fact, since opening the season with three wins, Red Deer has gone 3-8-0-0 to this point and is mired in a four-game losing streak. “We’ve done a lot of video work with the players,” said Sutter, whose club made it four setbacks in succession with Friday’s 4-3 home-ice loss to the rebuilding Saskatoon Blades, a club that is currently flourishing because of solid work habits. “We’ve made too many soft plays, we have to be harder on things and our overall game just needs to be better. We need to be sharper and more aware on the ice.” Sutter was hoping his club would respond following a series of strong practice sessions last week. But then, the same mistakes resurfaced in Friday’s game. “It’s a little bit of an attitude thing we have that we have to change,” said the Rebels bench boss, who is running out of patience. “We have to understand what we are as a team and understand the way we have to play within the identity of our team. We have to be a hard-working, team-orientated, structured team. Those are all big things.” On a positive note, netminder Patrik Bartosak did not suffer a concussion — as originally feared — when we was run over by Blades forward Collin Valcourt Friday night. “We thought he had a concussion, but all of the tests came back negative,” said Sutter. Bartosak, however, is questionable for Wednesday’s outing, although he should be able to accompany the team on a six-game road trip that starts Friday in Victoria. With Bartosak’s status for Wednesday up in the air, Sutter will bring in Rylan Toth from the North Battleford midget AAA team to serve as back-up to Taz Burman. The Rebels open their road trip with back to back games versus the Victoria Royals Friday and Saturday, then move on to Kamloops for a Nov. 5 meeting with the Blazers. From there, the Rebels will meet the Kelowna Rockets Nov. 6 and will take on Kootenay and the Lethbridge Hurricanes Nov. 8 and 9. Red Deer’s next home game following the trip is Nov. 15 against the Moose Jaw Warriors. ● The Rebels could know as early as this week if defenceman Mathew Dumba will be returning from the Minnesota Wild. Dumba has played eight games with Minnesota — and has two points with a goal and an assist — and if he plays tonight versus the Chicago Blackhawks and Friday against the Montreal Canadiens, the first year of his three-year entry level contract will kick in.


Boston Red Sox’s David Ortiz scores on a sacrifice fly by Stephen Drew to tie the game in the fifth inning during Game 4 of the World Series between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Boston Red Sox on Sunday, at Busch Stadium in St. Louis. Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina, left, was unable to receive the throw from left fielder Matt Holliday on the play.

Boston bounces back JONNY GOMES HITS THREE-RUN HOMER, RED SOX BEAT CARDINALS TO EVEN WORLD SERIES AT TWO APIECE BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Red Sox 4 Cardinals 2 ST. LOUIS — There’s no telling how these wacky World Series games will end. One night after a rare obstruction call, Jonny Gomes hit a decisive homer when he wasn’t even in the original lineup and Koji Uehara picked off a rookie at first base for the final out. An entertaining, even goofy World Series is tied at two games apiece following Boston’s 4-2 victory Sunday night, which ensured the title will be decided back at Boston’s Fenway Park. “Emotional roller-coaster here, obviously,” Gomes said. Inserted into the lineup about 75 minutes before gametime, Gomes hit a tiebreaking, three-run shot off reliever Seth Maness in the sixth inning. Felix Doubront and surprise reliever John Lackey, both starters during the regular season, picked up for a gritty Clay Buchholz to help the Red Sox hang on. And of course, another bizarre ending: Uehara picked off pinch-runner Kolten Wong — with postseason star Carlos Beltran standing at the plate. It was the first post-season game in history to end on a pickoff, according to STATS. Game 5 is Monday night at Busch Stadium, with Boston left-hander Jon Lester facing Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright in a rematch of the opener won 8-1 by the Red Sox. Gomes helped get Boston started in the fifth when he followed David Ortiz’s leadoff double with a 10-pitch walk that tired starter Lance Lynn, who had faced the minimum 12 batters through the first four innings. Stephen Drew’s sacrifice fly tied the score 1-all, erasing a deficit created when centre fielder Jacoby

Ellsbury’s third-inning error advanced Matt Carpenter into scoring position for Beltran’s RBI single. Ortiz, who homered in the first two games of the Series, had three of Boston’s six hits and was the club’s leader, smacking his hands together and screaming at teammates to get going when he pulled into second base on his double. Then, after the fifth inning, he huddled the Red Sox for a pep talk in the dugout. Not long after, Gomes’ drive put Boston ahead 4-1 in the sixth. With adrenaline taking over, Gomes spiked an arm through the air as he rounded first base, yelled and banged his chest with a fist twice. Teammates tugged on Gomes’ beard for good luck when he got back to the dugout, including a two-handed pull by Mike Napoli. While talk of umpires’ calls dominated discussion following two of the opening three games, this one turned on a manager’s pregame decision. John Farrell’s original Red Sox lineup didn’t include Gomes, but Victorino’s back had been bothering him since Saturday, so Daniel Nava was moved from left field to right and from fifth to second in the batting order. Gomes was inserted into the No. 5 hole behind Ortiz. “Since I signed up for this game, all I wanted was the opportunity,” Gomes said. “I just wanted to be in the box.” Gomes had been 0 for 9 in the Series before the home run, and Red Sox outfielders had been 4 for 40 with no RBIs. Following Dustin Pedroia’s two-out single and a four-pitch walk to Ortiz by Lynn, Maness threw five straight sliders to Gomes, who sent the last one into the Red Sox bullpen in left as Matt Holliday kept running back only to run out of room.

Bachman turns on overdrive against Kings GOALTENDER MAKES 47 SAVES IN DEBUT FOR OILERS BUT LOSES IN SHOOTOUT BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Kings 2 Oilers 1 SO LOS ANGELES — Anze Kopitar scored the deciding goal in a shootout and the Los Angeles Kings beat the Edmonton Oilers 2-1 on Sunday night for their seventh victory in nine games. The Kings outshot the Oilers 48-18 in regulation and overtime. Nail Yakupov scored for Edmonton on a power play in the second period and Mike Richards tied it less than 14 minutes later. The Kings are 5-0 in games that have gone past regulation. Jonathan Quick improved to 4-0 in shootouts, having stopped 10 of 11 shots he’s faced in tiebreakers. In 2010-11, he led the NHL with 10 shootout wins and had an .818 save percentage. Richard Bachman made a careerhigh 47 saves in his Oilers debut after getting recalled Sunday from Oklahoma City of the American Hockey League. The three-year veteran played his first 32 NHL games with the Dallas Stars, posting a 14-10 record and a 2.94

goals-against average. Last April 9, he stopped all 22 shots he faced against the Kings in relief of an injured Kari Lehtonen and got credit for a 5-1 victory at Dallas. Another potential goal by Richards was disallowed by referee Mike Leggo with 6:08 left in the third period. Bachman made the initial save on Jeff Carter’s 25-foot wrist shot from the slot, and teammate Matt Frattin made contact with him just before Richards fired the rebound over the fallen goaltender. But there was no penalty called on Frattin. Kings centre Jordan Nolan, who hadn’t had gotten a penalty in his first 10 games, brawled with Luke Gazdic at 2:09 of the second period — just 3 seconds after Edmonton’s Ryan Jones duked it out with Kyle Clifford. Kings defenceman Jake Muzzin was sent off for interference 20 seconds later, and the Oilers opened the scoring on the ensuing power play as Yakupov converted a rebound of Anton Belov’s 55-foot one-timer. Bachman, playing because of a Devan Dubnyk’s sore ankle, stopped the first 19 shots he faced before the Kings

tied it at 16:58 of the second period. Carter beat Belov to a loose puck behind the Oilers’ net and fed it out to Muzzin, whose one-timer was stopped by Bachman before Richards converted the rebound. Edmonton had a power play for 4 full minutes in the first, as Drew Doughty got a hooking penalty exactly two minutes after Jarret Stoll was sent off for the same infraction. The Oilers came up empty that time and finished 1 for 4 with the man advantage, after coming in a league-worst 1 for 21 on the road. It was a bumpy opening period for the Oilers. Center Ryan Nugent-Hopkins crumpled to the ice after a knee-on-knee hit by Clifford at the 7:44 mark and remained there for a couple of anxious moments before he was assisted to the bench by a couple of teammates. But he was back in time for the start of the Oilers’ first power play. Just 1:09 after the hit on NugentHopkins, defenceman Ladislav Smid went crashing into the back of the net in the Oilers’ zone and knocked it off its moorings after successfully defend-

ing a 2-on-1 rush by Carter and Clifford. NOTES: The Kings are following the lead of the Clippers, and will be covering up the Lakers’ championship banners and retired numbers with gigantic photo banners of their own players along the west wall of Staples Center. The change is expected to take place in the next couple of weeks, according to a member of the building crew who received a memo to that effect. ... The Kings are 13-1-6 against Edmonton since the start of the 2008-09 season. The only regulation loss during that stretch was a 3-0 decision at Los Angeles on Nov. 3, 2011, when they took 19 shots at Nikolai Khabibulin and 22 more that were blocked by his teammates. ... Stoll, who spent his first five NHL seasons with Edmonton, has yet to score in the Kings’ first 12 games — the 11-year veteran’s longest goal drought from the start of a season. ... Edmonton F Ryan Smyth didn’t get to play against his former team because of a groin injury that kept him in sidelined for the fourth straight game. ... The Kings and St. Louis Blues are the only teams in the league that don’t have a rookie on their active roster.

Flames cook Capitals in return home BY THE CANADIAN PRESS Flames 5 Capitals 2 CALGARY — From the opening shift to the end of the game, it was clear the Calgary Flames were happy to be back home. Calgary scored on the first shift, and Michael Cammalleri scored twice as the Flames cruised to a 5-2 win over the Washington Capitals on Saturday. Cammalleri’s first goal gave Calgary a 3-1 lead 13-minute mark of the first period. “I thought it was nice for us to come out with a high energy start,” said Cammalleri, who was playing in his fourth game after missing the first seven with a hand injury. “(We) just came off a nine or 10-day road trip, quite a lot of travel and I thought it was a testament to the group’s will to win the way that we were able to get going off the start.” The Flames surprised by starting the season 3-0-2. But things didn’t go as well on a difficult five-game road trip in which they were able to pick up just a single win. “We ended with two losses and that didn’t feel good for anybody but at the same time, you regroup, you’re excited to come home, excited to play in front of our fans and know that if we can put some wins together we’re right back where we want to be,” said Cammalleri, who also had an assist and has five points (three goals, two assists) on the season. The Flames big achievement was holding Capitals star Alex Ovechkin to no points for the first time in eight career


Calgary Flames goalie Karri Ramo makes a save against the Washington Capitals during third period NHL action in Calgary, Saturday. Calgary went on to win 5-2. games against Calgary. In the first seven, he amassed eight goals and seven assists. “The start, we weren’t ready for it. They jumped on us right away, scored first shift. They had momentum and we kept making mistakes in our zone,” said Ovechkin. Slow starts have been an issue for the Capitals all season. They’ve been outscored 12-6 in the first period. “I don’t think we jump in

right away. Something has to be happening. We have to score or there needs to be a big play by a goalie,” said Ovechkin. “We were a little sleepy out there tonight.” Not only did Ovechkin, the NHL’s third leading scorer, get shutout, but so did the Capitals No. 2 ranked power play, which went 0 for 4 against a Calgary penalty kill that entered the night ranked 29th.

“The plan was to not allow (Ovechkin) to get the puck. The only place in the game where it was pretty tough was on the power play. He’s so skilled and playing on the far side, he is basically impossible to cover,” said Flames coach Bob Hartley. “Karri Ramo had a couple of big saves on him and I thought that 5-on-5, the Stajan line and whoever was playing on D against Ovie did quite a

job.” Also scoring for Calgary (5-4-2) was Kris Russell, Jiri Hudler and Curtis Glencross, with Russell and Dennis Wideman finishing plus-five. Calgary, which has yet to lose in regulation at the Saddledome (3-0-1), continues its three-game homestand Wednesday night with the Toronto Maple Leafs in town. Jason Chimera and Aaron Volpatti scored for Washington (5-6-0), which saw its threegame winning streak come to an end. The Capitals have two stops left in a five-game road trip, the in Vancouver on Monday. It was the second and final meeting of the season between the two teams and for Holtby, the night went similar to the first meeting, when he was pulled 16:22 into the first after three goals on 11 shots and the Capitals down 3-0. On this night, it was three goals in 12:50 and a 3-1 deficit. Calgary got off to a fast start, jumping out to a 1-0 lead on a superb opening shift by the line of Cammalleri with Calgary kids Joe Colborne and TJ Galiardi. The trio hemmed the Capitals in their end nearly the entire time and the persistent pressure led to Russell’s first goal as a Flame at 1:04. “We weren’t happy with the way we had come out to start the previous games. We knew that we were behind the 8-ball and we didn’t want to have it happen, especially to a team like this,” Russell said. “We did a good job of really making sure we were focused from the start and ready for that first shift.”

Stampeders edge Roughriders Pair of Banks to clinch West Division title TDs leads Ticats BY THE CANADIAN PRESS Stampeders 29 Roughriders 25 CALGARY — With both defences taking away space all over the football field, it took a quarterbacking change and the nimble legs of Jon Cornish to give the Calgary Stampeders a 29-25 win over the Saskatchewan Roughriders on Saturday. The CFL’s leading rusher kept adding to his gaudy numbers this season and scored the winning touchdown with just over two minutes to play. The New Westminster, B.C., native plowed three yards into the end zone for the last score of a heated, see-saw battle between the two teams with the best records in the CFL. But Calgary (14-3) secured first place in the CFL’s West Division with a game remaining for the right to host the division final Nov. 17. “That’s why you work so hard throughout the regular season and when you get close you want to clinch the deal,” Stampeder head coach John Hufnagel said. “This wasn’t a must-win situation for us, but we did want to win it in front of our home fans.” The Roughriders (11-6) get the division semifinal Nov. 10 against the B.C. Lions. The winner advances to face the Stampeders at McMahon with the division winner earning a berth Nov. 24 in the Grey Cup in Regina. With Calgary trailing 15-10 after the first half because of turnovers, Hufnagel replaced starting quarterback Kevin Glenn with Drew Tate, who completed 11-of-16 passes for 181 yards. Tate also ran for a touchdown and his 37-yard pass to wide receiver Jeff Fuller in the fourth

OLDS — A thirdperiod power-play goal by Trent Geiger was the winner as the Calgary Canucks edged the Olds Grizzlys 2-1 in an AJHL game Saturday viewed by 601 fans at the Sportsplex. Derek Thorogood notched a first-period power-play marker for the visitors. Chris Gerrie drew the Grizzlys even with a man-advantage tally in the second period. Colin Cooper came up big in the Calgary net, stopping 36 shots. Ethan Jemieff made 21 saves for Olds. The Grizzlys are in Sherwood Park Wednesday to take on the Crusaders, then hook up with the Okotoks Oilers in a home-and-home set, Friday at Okotoks and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. at the Sportsplex.


“We’re not going to win kicking field goals. It’s always a dog fight when we play these guys and tonight was no different.” Sheets and Calgary defensive end Charleston Hughes had traded social media barbs via Twitter heading into the game because Sheets had declared himself that best back in the league. Hughes collected three and Cordarro Law two of Calgary’s seven sacks in the game, while the ’Riders registered three. Hughes took over the league lead in sacks with 18. Saskatchewan’s Alex Hall didn’t register one in the game to remain at 15 and one ahead of Law. “There was a lot of talk throughout the week,” Hughes said. “I wanted to back it up. “It was something like a statement game. For one, that I am the best defensive end in this league and for two, the second-best defensive end in this league is right next to me. Cordarro Law.” Roughrider defensive back Dwight Anderson, a Stampeder for three seasons before heading to Saskatchewan, had a direct message for his former team. “We’re the better the team anyway,” Anderson said. “Calgary sucks.” The Roughriders are under considerable pressure to participate in the Grey Cup hosted by their province. A win Saturday would have extended the race for first place in the division to the final week of the regular season, although a Stampeder victory over the Lions on Friday would have put it out of Saskatchewan’s reach. Saturday’s game may have been a preview of the division final, which would pit the top offences and defences in the league against each other again.


Tiger-Cats 27 Alouettes 24 GUELPH, Ont. — Brandon Banks says all he had to do was run — 107 yards to the end zone — to secure his Hamilton Tiger-Cats second spot in the CFL East and a home playoff berth. “All I had to do was catch the ball and run down the sideline,” said Banks, who only signed with the team Sept. 30 after three seasons with the Washington Redskins. “It was the other 11 guys working their butts off getting me great blocks.” When Montreal kicker Sean Whyte missed his 42-yard field goal short with little more than four minutes left in the game, Banks caught the ball and took it up the left sideline for the score and a 27-23 lead, the Ticats’ first of the game. That was Banks second of two fourth-quarter touchdowns as the Tiger-Cats came from behind to defeat the Montreal Alouettes 27-24 in front of 13,012 at the University of Guelph’s Alumni Stadium on Saturday. The Ticats were down by as much as 16-0 in the second quarter before clawing their way back. Hamilton (9-8) has wrapped up second spot in the CFL East Division and will host the semifinal, against the Alouettes, on Nov. 10. Montreal falls to 7-10. S.J. Green, Geoff Tisdale and Duron Carter scored touchdowns for the Alouettes. C.J. Gable also scored for the Ticats. Hamilton kicker Luca Congi hit field goals from 22 and 25 yards. Montreal kicker Sean Whyte missed his two field-goal attempts, from 42 and 41 yards. “We got fortunate that they missed the field goal, right?” said Hamilton head coach Kent Austin. “Because they could have easily made the field goal. But you watch our guys’ effort in blocking downfield on that . . . Just great effort. Guys just playing to the whistle and playing hard.” With his first completion of the game, Burris moved into fourth spot for CFL all-time career pass completions, ahead of Danny McManus (3,640). But that was the only bright spot in his numbers for the day, with zero touchdown passes and one interception that was returned 64-yards by Tisdale for the score. Rookie back-up Jeremiah Masoli threw one TD pass for Hamilton.

quarter was the play preceding Cornish’s TD. “We were having a little bit of problems with our offensive line,” Hufnagel said of his halftime decision. “I had guys who weren’t 100 per cent healthy after the first couple of series and we wanted more mobility at that position.” Calgary concludes the regular season on the road against the Lions on Friday, while the Roughriders are at home to the Eskimos. With Tate, who spent much of this season managing an arm injury, back in the mix, it renews the question of which quarterback will start in the post-season. Hufnagel said following the game it is possible Glenn, Tate and Bo Levi Mitchell will all take snaps against the Lions. Cornish’s 109 yards padded his own single-season rushing record for a Canadian running back to 1,721 this season. Saskatchewan’s Kory Sheets, the league’s No. 2 rusher behind Cornish, had 42 yards on 11 carries. Glenn and Cornish each fumbled the ball twice in the first half. Glenn completed 11-of-17 passes for 120 yards and threw a touchdown pass to Anthony Parker before he was replaced by Tate. Stampeder kicker Rene Paredes made his three field-goal attempts in front of an announced 33,671 at McMahon Stadium. Darian Durant threw a touchdown pass to Taj Smith that gave Saskatchewan a temporary lead in the fourth quarter. The veteran quarterback also ran for a TD for Saskatchewan in the game. Roughrider kicker Chris Milo was 4 for 4 in field-goal attempts. “We squandered it,” Durant said. “The defence gave us plenty of opportunities to put some points on the board.

“I take a lot of pride in the at-bat in front of me and behind me,” Gomes said. “Obviously, Big Papi is pretty much an intentional walk. I did what I could to give him a little protection.” Carpenter singled in a run in the seventh off Craig Breslow in the seventh after pinch-hitter Shane Robinson doubled with two outs against Doubront on a ball that skidded away from Gomes. Junichi Tazawa came in and got Holliday to hit an inning-ending grounder to second, a night after allowing a tiebreaking, two-run double to Holliday. Doubront got the win with 2 2-3 innings of one-hit relief. Lackey, the Game 2 loser and Boston’s probable Game 6 starter, pitched the eighth for his first relief appearance in nine years, overcoming a two-base throwing error by third baseman Xander Bogaerts — Boston’s seventh error of the Series — and a wild pitch.

With a runner on third, Lackey got Jon Jay to pop up and David Freese to ground out. Uehara, Boston’s sixth pitcher, got three outs for his sixth save this postseason, completing a six-hitter. Lynn was the hard-luck loser, leaving with the score tied and two on for Maness, who allowed Gomes’ homer on his fifth pitch. A night after one of the craziest endings in Series history — an obstruction call on Red Sox third baseman Will Middlebrooks — Boston ensured the Series will return to Fenway Park for Game 6 on Wednesday night. “We stayed away from throwing the ball down the third base line tonight,” Gomes said. It was a special anniversary for both teams. Exactly nine years earlier, the Red Sox completed a four-game sweep of the Cardinals across the street at old Busch Stadium for their first championship since 1918. And two years earlier, Freese hit a tying, two-run, two-out triple in the ninth against Texas and a winning homer in the 11th to force a Game 7, which St. Louis won the following night.

Buchholz, in his first appearance since the AL championship series finale on Oct. 19, fought through shoulder issues and his velocity topped out at 90 mph. He lasted a season-low four innings and 66 pitches before he was lifted for a pinch-hitter, but he allowed just an unearned run and three hits. “We have guys with heart. Clay, he brought everything he’s got,” Ortiz said. “I have never seen Clay throwing an 88 mph fastball.” Fielding for the Red Sox became trouble again in the third when Carpenter singled to centre with one out, and the ball appeared to take a high hop and roll away from Ellsbury. Carpenter sprinted to second on the second error of the Series by Ellsbury — who had just three during the regular season. Beltran singled into centre field two pitches later, making him 8 for 10 with 12 RBIs with runners in scoring position during the post-season. After Ortiz’s double to the right-centre field wall in the fifth, Gomes fell behind 0-2 in the count and then worked out his walk.

Kings cruise to win over Huskies BY GREG MEACHEM ADVOCATE SPORTS EDITOR Kings 6 Huskies 1 Tired of playing extra minutes, the RDC Kings kept the pedal to the metal Saturday and rolled to a 6-1 Alberta Colleges men’s hockey win over the Fort McMurray Keyano Huskies before close to 150 fans at the Penhold Regional Multiplex. The Kings avoided overtime for the first time in four outings by firing three unanswered third-period goals to easily secure the two points inside of regulation time. “We made that mistake last night — we gave them two goals in just under a minute,” said Kings two-goal scorer Pat Martens, reflecting back on Friday’s 4-3 overtime win in which the Huskies sniped two third-period goals in 27 seconds to erase a 3-1 deficit. “Today we turned around and played a full 60 minutes. We hadn’t done that the previous three games.” The Huskies looked disorganized and undisciplined early, taking four penalties in the first six minutes and change. But the Kings quickly repaid the favour and were nailed with the next four minors before the period ended. Kyle Lapenskie and Martens (power play) scored first-period goals for the Kings, who watched Huskies forward Blair Wilson cut the lead to 2-1 just 1:50 into the second stanza. The Kings were assessed five of six penalties in the period but were able to restore their two-goal cushion late in the frame when Dustin Lebrun took a stretch pass from Brent Wold, broke in alone and banked a shot off the post and behind Huskies netminder Jeff Puddephatt. The Kings’ penalty woes continued early in the third period as Clay Petrie

was assessed a checking-from-behind minor and game misconduct and Riley Point was fingered for interference. However, RDC’s penalty killers were perfect, going 10-for-10 in total, and the Kings put the game away with thirdperiod goals from D.J. McGrath, Wold (power play) and Martens, who swept around a Huskies defenceman, cut to the net and beat Puddephatt with a wide deke. In addition to their excellent penalty killing, the Kings were two-for-six on the power play. “Specialty teams win hockey games and today we won that battle. That was the difference,” said Martens. “We took too many penalties, although not a lot of them were bad ones. They were a little soft, I thought,” said Kings head coach Trevor Keeper. “But whatever, that’s how it is. “Our penalty kill is close to 90 per cent this season and it was better today because we were tighter on their points around the top of their umbrella. We talked about that and the guys did a good job.” As for his club’s two-for-six showing with a man advantage . . . “That’s kind of where we’ve been sitting lately,” said Keeper. “We’re getting a couple of (power play) goals every game.” The Kings bench boss reminded his team after 40 minutes of the Huskies’ comeback and strong third period the night before. “We talk about not letting them stay in it today,” said Keeper. “Yesterday Keyano had a really good third period. They got more that half of their shots in the third and we allowed it to go to overtime. “Overtime is good in terms of building confidence for later in the year, but we especially talked about coming out in the third today and dominating and

Mike Salmon made 29 saves for RDC. The Kings improved to 8-2-0-0 and moved into a first-place tie with the 7-1-0-2 SAIT Trojans. “Our goal is to get better every

week,” said Keeper. “We’re a rookie team, inexperienced at this level, but the guys are really good at doing what we ask and they’re getting better every week.” Next up for RDC is a home-andhome set with the Trojans, Friday at Penhold (7:15 p.m.) and Saturday in Calgary.

Blockbuster deal sends Vanek to Islanders UNIONDALE, N.Y. — The New York Islanders acquired forward Thomas Vanek from the Buffalo Sabres on Sunday night for forward Matt Moulson, a first-round pick in 2014, and a second-round pick in 2015. The 29-year-old Vanek, a former University of Minnesota star from Austria, had four goals and nine assists in 13 games this season for Buffalo. In nine seasons with Buffalo, he had 254 goals and 243 assists in 598 games. Moulson, who will turn 30 next week, had six goals and three assists in 11 games this season. He has 124 goals and 109 assists in 333 games in seven seasons with the Los Angeles Kings and Islanders. Both Vanek and Moulson can become unrestricted free agents after this season. Vanek is being paid $6.4 million this season and carries a salary cap charge of $7.14 million. Moulson is earning $3.9 million and is expected to command

While the Islanders are losing a fan favourite and key linemate for captain John Tavares in Moulson, they are adding another proven star and goal scorer to play with Tavares. Moulson has led the Islanders in goals in three of the past four seasons. Vanek has scored 40 goals twice and was an All-Star in 2009. Vanek led Buffalo in power-play goals in seven of his nine NHL seasons and topped the league with 20 in the 2008-09. In 36 career playoff games, Vanek — the No. 5 pick in the 2003 NHL draft — has 15 goals and five assists. This trade came at a particularly curious time as chants of “Fire Darcy!” have been directed at general manager Darcy Regier during recent home games. Buffalo will host the Dallas Stars on Monday and their new coach Lindy Ruff, the winningest coach in Sabres history, who was fired in February and replaced by Ron Rolston, whose job also isn’t safe. “It’s part of the business,” Rolston said of Ruff’s dismissal and return. “Coaches change jobs. He did great things for the organization, and I’m sure they’ll have something for that. “We’ve got bigger things to focus on ourselves. Worry about things that we can have control over.”

BULL RIDING THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LAS VEGAS — J.B. Mauney won his first Professional Bull Riders championship Sunday, earning $1 million for the season points title and another $250,000 for topping the six-round PBR World Finals. The Mooresville, N.C., rider wrapped up the season title by winning the fifth round with a 91-point ride on Harlem Shake. He finished the season with earnings of $1,810,711. Mauney was the lone rider to have six successful rides, the last a winning 93 on Wipeout in the championship round. He is the only finals competitor to ride all six bulls twice, a feat he first accomplished in 2009 when he won the finals aggregate title. Two-time defending world champion Silvano Alves of Brazil finished second in the world title race, 977.75 points behind Mauney. Alves also was second in the event aggregate. Mauney, 538.5 points

behind Alves entering the finals, won the final four rounds. He pointed to an unprecedented break from May 12 to Aug. 16 for his success. “Before I got married (in May 2012) I didn’t listen to nobody,” Mauney said. “They always tried to tell me to take breaks and I always felt that you’ve got to be tough to ride bulls, so I felt I could (ride) with pain. “The best thing I ever did was take that break. It got my mind right. I went home, didn’t even think about bull riding, forgot about it and came back with a brand new attitude and my body felt great. This is the best I’ve ever felt in my whole career and it showed up in my riding. Everything was going great.” Mauney is the third non-Brazilian to win the world title in the last eight years. “All them guys that are riding tonight are here because they are the best bull riders in the world,” Mauney said. “It doesn’t matter where you’re from. All the Brazilians have won it the

past few years. They were just better at their job than the rest of us. I take my hat off to every one of them, especially Silvano. He tries his guts out every single time. There’s no back up in him.” Bushwacker won the World Champion Bull Award for the second time in three years. Mauney rode him in Tulsa, Okla., this season to end a streak of 42 consecutive buckoffs that started in 2009. Joao Ricardo Vieira, a Brazilian who finished third in the world championship race, claimed the PBR Rookie of the Year Award.

more on the open market. The Sabres were likely to lose Vanek in free agency after this season, the final year of a seven-year, $50 million deal the Sabres matched after Edmonton signed him to an offer sheet in July 2007. Whether or not the Sabres re-sign Moulson, the draft picks they acquired from New York will help in a rebuilding plan for a team that is off to an NHLworst 2-10-1 mark and 0-6-1 at home. The process began in earnest last season when the Sabres traded three core veterans, including captain Jason Pominville, for draft picks and prospects. Buffalo has had two first-round picks in each of the past two drafts. Veteran goalie Ryan Miller also is in the final year of his contract and is another candidate to be traded. Vanek has served as a co-captain this season, wearing the ’C’ for home games. The Islanders also are in a rebuilding process as they look to improve on last season when they reached the playoffs and provided a challenge to the Pittsburgh Penguins in a six-game, first-round series. New York has been up and down early this season, going 4-4-3 in its first 11 games, including 2-2-3 at home.

Raiders looking beyond the rankings HIGH SCHOOL VOLLEYBALL BY DANNY RODE ADVOCATE STAFF The rankings may change but as for now the Lindsay Thurber Raiders are the No. 1 ranked 4A boys’ high school volleyball team in the province. Head coach Terence McMullen likes the fact his team is highly ranked, but isn’t about to worry if it changes. “We’re definitely up there, but really we’re not worried about the ranking as of now, it means more at the end of the season going into the provincials,” he said. “It’s definitely a feather in our hat and we’ll work hard to keep it, but we do have a target on our back.” The Raiders may see that ranking slip a touch after they lost 17-25, 25-22, 10-15 to Bev Facey of Sherwood Park in the final of the 40th annual LTCHS senior tournament Saturday. Facey came in ranked fifth in the province. “They’re a big team and we haven’t faced a lot of big teams. It’s a good match for us to work on some things so we can stay at the top of the pile,” said McMullen prior to reaching the final.” The Raiders are an experienced group with nine Grade 12s, two Grade 11s — setter Fischer Kooman and left side Jarrett Zilinski and one Grade 10 — six-foot-three middle Ben Holmes. The Raiders do have some height of their own in six-footsix left side Tanner Rehn and two six-foot-five right sides in Scott Irvine and Parker Cook. The other veterans are left sides Gaige Rehn and Brian Grenier, middles Kieran Sudlow and Jayden Halsey, setter Matthew Graham and libero Cody Domoney.

“We’re lucky in that seven of the Grade 12 kids play together on the Kings Club team and so they have a lot of experience and chemistry together,” said McMullen. “But also the other kids are stepping up. Even the younger guys are picking it up as they practice against the older group and they need to keep their level of play up to get in there. “The important thing is to make sure we play at our level, and not let down or get complacent. And hopefully our best is better than who we’re playing. If so we’ll have a pretty successful year.” Meanwhile, the female edition of the Raiders was ranked seventh heading into their tournament and finished tied for third after losing 16-25, 2125 to fourth-ranked Sir Winston Churchill of Calgary in the semifinals. Churchill went on to beat Catholic Central of Lethbridge 25-23, 22-25, 15-6 in the final. Raiders head coach Kirsten DeZutter is excited about the rankings,. “We’re hoping to be competitive every time we step on the court and we’ve been pushing to be the best we can be so we can reach our potential,” she said. “So far we’ve been competitive in all the tournaments we’ve been in. “The strength of the team has been team unity. We win as a team and lose as a team. We’re a very cohesive, hardworking, caring group, which makes it easy to coach as everyone has to be at their best and support each other. We just don’t rely on one individual.” DeZutter has six Grade 12s, four Grade 11s and two Grade 10s. Outside hitters Rivver

Lindsay Thurber Raiders Molly Rumohr, left, and Emma Newton block a shot from the E.P. Scarlet Lasers during the opening game of the 40th Annual Lindsay Thurber Varsity Volleyball Tournament on Friday. Flewell, McKenna Barthel, Kennedy Graham and Kelsie Smale along with middles Jamie Cheney and Emma Newton were all with the team last year and in Grade 12. The two Grade 10s are middle Kelsey Lalor and outside hitter/libero Kaylee Domoney. The Grade 11s are setters Bretton Bowd and Molly Rimohr, outside hitter Tara Sudlow and outside hitter/libero Alyssa Wiebe. For DeZutter this year is a bit of a change after coaching with Barb Young for several years. “I used to do it alone, then with Barb, so this is a change for sure,” she said. “But I have a great team with me in Kate

Archer, Robyn Froese and Dallas Snider.” The Raiders play in a 4A conference against only Hunting Hills and Notre Dame after playing in the Central Alberta League with the 3A team for years. “It was a mutual thing as the 3A teams wanted their own league and we took the opportunity to just play against ourselves locally. This way we get to practice a bit more plus the athletes don’t have as many late nights.” On the boys’ side, the Raiders reached the final with a 25-11, 25-21 win over Dr. E.P. Scarlett of Calgary while Facey downed Notre Dame 19-25,

25-8, 15-9.

RDC opens volleyball season with sweep of Medicine Hat Rattlers BY DANNY RODE ADVOCATE STAFF Kings 3 Rattlers 0 After a bit of a up and down start to the season Friday the RDC Kings looked more like the defending Alberta Colleges Men’s Volleyball League champions Saturday. The Kings did defeat the Medicine Hat Rattlers 3-0 on Friday, but they had a much easier time Saturday afternoon downing the Rattlers 25-18, 25-15, 25-12. “We were a little more consistent for sure,” said Kings head coach Aaron Schulha. “On Friday we experienced a bit of home-opener, firstmatch jitters, but today the guys came better prepared. It was more businesslike for everyone as they did what they should do.” The Rattlers simply didn’t have the depth, or the blocking, to handle the Kings, especially at the net. Setter Sam Brisbane was outstanding, as he controlled the play offensively, moving the ball around between his outside hitters and middles. “Chris Osborn is beginning to take over in the middle, which means things open up a bit for our outside hitters,” said Schulha. “And we did a good job of getting the ball up to Sammy who did a good job of getting everyone involved and getting them the ball.”

Tim Finnigan led the Kings with 10 kills, two stuff blocks and an ace while Braden O’Toole had eight kills, four aces and four digs. Osborn added eight kills, two aces, five digs and a block. Schulha went to his bench in both the second and third sets and the Kings didn’t lose any momentum. “We have a deep group, and really it’s week-to-week who will be our starters,” he said. “The next six guys off the bench are capable and don’t let down when they’re called upon, which is nice for the coach.” While the KIngs are dominate offensively their defence wasn’t bad either. “That’s something we’ve been working hard on,” said Schulha. “Our offence isn’t an issue and we’ll have success as long as we look after our serving and passing.” Parker Maris had 10 digs for the Kings while Brett Young led the Rattlers with eight kills and three digs. Queens 3 Rattlers 0 The Queens took a similar route to the Kings as they rolled over the Rattlers 25-9, 25-11, 25-21 to complete a weekend sweep. “We were sharper than Friday,” said Queens head coach Talbot Walton. “We served well., We’ve been talking about depth in serving and whether we went short or long it enabled us to push their passers around and allowed our blockers more time to get

JUNIOR B HOCKEY The Red Deer Vipers earned five of a possible six points in weekend Heritage Junior B Hockey League action, beating the host Airdrie Thunder 6-2 and the visiting Coaldale Copperheads 5-2, and losing 5-4 in overtime to the host Okotoks Bisons. Chris Robertson sniped two goals in Friday’s win at Airdrie as the Vipers erupted for five unanswered goals to recover from a 2-1 deficit. Troy Klaus and Ryan Thomson had short-handed markers for the Vipers, whose additional goals were courtesy of Kolton Gillett (power play) and Connor Einhorn. Anthony Hamill made 28 saves for the winners, while Eric Moltzahn picked up three assists. On Saturday, the Vipers got single markers from Gillett, Thomson, Robertson, Colton Weseen and Justin Corbett in the win over Coaldale at the Arena. Klay Munro stopped 30 shots for the win.

The Vipers, with Cole deGraaf potting a pair of goals — including one with 33 seconds remaining in the third period that forced overtime —dropped a 5-4 overtime decision to the Bisons Sunday at Okotoks. Einhorn and Nathan Dennis also scored for Red Deer, with Hamill making 22 saves. In other weekend Heritage League games: ● The Ponoka Stampeders were 5-1 losers to the visiting Cochrane Generals Saturday. Details were unavailable. ● The Three Hills Thrashers got past the visiting Airdrie Thunder 5-4 Saturday, 24 hours after losing 7-3 to the visiting Mountainview Colts. Connor Ablett, Kelby Stevens and Lucas Jones scored against Mountainview, while Brody Dirk made 35 saves. Details from the Saturday game were unavailable. ● The Medicine Hat Cubs were 1-0 losers to the host Stettler Wildcats Saturday. Details were unavailable.

established. It made playing defence easier as we touched a lot of stuff and allowed us to dig around the blocks, which allowed us to run our offence.” Karissa Kuhr led the Queens with eight kills and three digs while Alex Donaghy had five kills, two aces, two digs and two blocks and Miranda Dawe came off the bench and had six kills and six digs in less than two sets. Walton was able to use his bench in the second and third sets. “Still it’s important that we start the same group of athletes so they’re prepared and will get into a rhythm and be able to establish some sort of control of the game,” said Walton. “That way when we make our subs they’re more confident as they’ve seen the level of volleyball being played because they’ve practiced against that group every day. “As well it’s important for the starters to play well so the when the bench players do come in they can play freely.” Brooke Sutter added four kills and four digs, libero Maddi Quinn had 12 digs and was the player of the match and setter Bronwyn Hawkes and Ashley Fehr both played confidently. Madison Mitchell had five kills and five digs for the Rattlers. The RDC faces Olds in a home-andhome series this week — Friday in Olds and Saturday at RDC.

Generals score four unanswered goals in third period to down Drillers CHINOOK HOCKEY LEAGUE The Bentley Generals fired four unanswered thirdperiod goals to defeat the visiting Okotoks Drillers 6-2 in a Chinook Hockey League game Friday. Kyle Bailey led the 3-0 Generals with a hat-trick performance, while single goals were added by Connor Shields, Logan Sceviour and Sean Robertson. The Generals fired 45 shots at Okotoks netminder Todd Ford. Travis Yonkman made 26 saves for Bentley. Meanwhile, the host Innisfail Eagles gave up a late power-play goal to Doug Auchenberg and dropped a 3-2 decision to the Fort Saskatchewan Chiefs. Jason Nopper scored both Innisfail goals, both on the power play. Jim Watt made 36 saves for the Chiefs, while Eagles netminder Bryce Luker blocked 34 shots. The Generals were set to host the Stony Plain Eagles Saturday but the game was postponed due to ice conditions at the Bentley Arena.

Woodland takes silver at championships RDC ATHLETICS BY ADVOCATE STAFF EDMONTON — RDC’s Devin Woodland turned in an outstanding race to capture silver in the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference cross-country running championships Saturday. Woodland finished the eight-kilometre race in 27 minutes 10 seconds, which was 31 seconds faster than the time he turned in over the same course three weeks ago. Lethbridge College’s Edwin Kaitany, who is the latest in a long line of runners from Kenya to compete for the Kodiaks, won the title in 26:23. Woodland defeated SAIT’s Kenton Sportak by three seconds. “It was no surprise to see Edwin win as he won all four previous ACAC Grand Prix races this year,” said RDC coach Brian Stackhouse. “It was a real battle with Sportak, who is a strong 800-metre runner and has a strong kick. To win the silver Devin pushed the pace with about two-kilometres to go to open up a large enough gap that Sportak couldn’t close it. “It certainly was an exciting finish and all three medalists deserved credit for an excellent and courageous race.”

Kaitany won the Grand Prix title with Woodland second, Alex Harding of Lethbridge third and Sportak fourth. Jordanna Cota had her best race of the season, finishing eighth in the women’s 5km run in a time of 20:37, which was 26 seconds faster than her time three weeks before. “All the best runners compete in the ACAC championship and it’s impressive to see Jordanna finish in the top 10,” said Stackhouse. Vanessa Trofimenkoff off Grant MacEwan finished first in a photo finish with Jamie Wigmore of Grande Prairie. Both finished at 19:14 with Lesley Koopman of Grant MacEwan at 19:29. Trofimenkoff was first in the Grand Prix standings with Cota seventh. Noah Arychuk was 16th for RDC in the men’s race at 30:22 with Tyler Nelson 42nd at 34 minutes and Kevin Buckel 65th at 41:52. Nelson was 1:33 faster than his time three weeks prior. The RDC men finished sixth with Grant MacEwan first with SAIT second and Lethbridge third. Samantha Debree placed 26th and Emily Maplethorpe 27th at 22:50 and 22:56. Laura Friesen came in at 23 minutes for 30th while Robyn He-

bert (23:54) was 43rd, Catherine Alcorn (24:21) 47th, Anna Duda (24:21) 48th, Sidney Moss (24:36) 52nd and Nicole Willson (25:36) 63rd. SAIT won the team title with Lethbridge second and Grande Prairie third. RDC was fifth. RDC will compete at the Canadian finals, Nov. 9 in Toronto. Basketball Kings 83 Ooks 77 Despite playing their second game in as many days and travelling from Red Deer to Fort McMurray and back to Edmonton, the RDC Kings turned in a solid two-way performance to down the NAIT Ooks 83-77 in ACAC Men’s Basketball League action Saturday. “It was a hard-fought game and the second one of the weekend,” said Kings head coach Clayton Pottinger. “Both of our opponents played just one game and only had to concentrate on us, plus we did all the travelling. But it was two gutsy performances and two wins.” The Kings ran their record to 3-0. Matt Johnson led the Kings with 14 points while Mari Peoples-Wong added 13, Clay Crelin 12 and Brian Prenoslo 11. Ooks 80 Queens 46 The Queens didn’t have as much success as they looked tired and couldn’t handle the Ooks constant pressure. “They pressed the whole game and

we had 40 turnovers, plus gave up 20 offensive rebounds,” said Queens head coach Mike Woollard, whose squad sits at 1-2. Mozanga Ekwalanga and Desirae Paterson had 10 points each for RDC while Jessica Foley added seven. Kaitlin Bracho had seven rebounds and Sarah Williamson six. RDC opens their home schedule Friday against Olds. Griffins 3 Hockey Queens 1 The RDC Queens ran into penalty trouble and it cost them in a 3-1 loss to the Grant MacEwan University Griffins in ACAC Women’s Hockey League play in Edmonton Saturday. “We took a bunch of lazy penalties and they came back to bite us,” said Queens head coach Bob Rutz. “We were good five-on-five, but we also didn’t convert when we had the chances either. It was one of those nights.” Laura Salomons opened the scoring for the Queens at 6:15 of the first period while on the power play, but then the Griffins scored three times with the man advantage — Sasha Lutz and Kailey Curran in the first period and Sydney Hawkeswood in the second. The Queens finished with 37 shots on Brenna McNulty while Moriah Andrews faced 36 in the RDC goal. Queens return to action Thursday when they host the NAIT Ooks at 7 p.m.

Gordon wins, title race tightens Kings soccer team wins bronze as Kenseth and Johnson leave at ACAC championships Martinsville tied THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


MARTINSVILLE, Va. — Jeff Gordon used an unprecedented chairman’s selection to get into the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship 48 hours before the opening race. Now Gordon is trying his hardest to parlay that exemption from NASCAR chairman Brian France into a fifth title. Gordon pulled into the championship picture Sunday with a win at Martinsville Speedway, his first of the season, to move from fifth to third in the Sprint Cup standings with three races remaining. Not too bad for the guy who started the Chase as the 13th driver in the field when France decided Gordon had been denied the ability to fairly race his way into the 12-driver field by the manipulations of at least three other organizations at Richmond. “I don’t like how we got in it, being an added 13th team,” Gordon said. “But we’re certainly not going to say ’No, we won’t take it.’ We wanted to be in it. We feel like we were in a position to earn our way into it, and I think that this team would have performed like this whether we were in it or not. “To me, that decision just meant that what we’re going to be racing for is a championship instead of for ourselves and pride.” The win was Gordon’s eighth career victory at Martinsville, but first since he swept the two races at the track in 2005. He’s tied with Hendrick Motorsports teammate Jimmie Johnson for Martinsville victories, but both trail Richard Petty (15) and Darrell Waltrip (11) on the career list. Most important, though, is that he’s just 27 points behind the leaders in the race for the Sprint Cup. Matt Kenseth and Johnson left Martinsville tied atop the standings headed into Texas Motor Speedway. Gordon is third in the standings, with Kevin Harvick 28 points out and Kyle Busch 36 points behind. “I do feel like it’s plausible,” Gordon crew chief Alan Gustafson said. “I think we can go win these next three races, and I think that anything can happen. It’s not going to be easy, never is easy, it’s not going to be easy for them, either.”

EDMONTON — The RDC Kings didn’t let the disappointment of a loss in the semifinals stop them from winning bronze at the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference men’s soccer championships. The Kings, who lost 3-0 to the NAIT Ooks Saturday, came back to edge the Lethbridge Kodiaks 2-1 Sunday. “I’m extremely proud of the players,” said Kings head coach Steve Fullarton, who is coach of the year in the south. “They didn’t let the disappointment of the loss to NAIT stop them. They were determined to come home with something, and they deserved it.” The Kings jumped into a 2-0 lead in the first

half against the Kodiaks on goals by Mark Ibbotson and Sam Day. “It was Mark’s ninth goal of the season, quite an accomplishment for a rookie,” said Fullarton. “Sam’s goal came on a rebound after Nolan (Hamilton) was stopped by their goalie.” Fullarton started backup goalie Morgan Drews in the first half and he made a spectacular save to keep the score 2-0 at the break. Rayden Beveridge played the second half and also played a major role in the victory. “Lethbridge came out determined in the second half and put a lot of pressure on us, plus we played the last 10 minutes down a man when Andrew Jevne received a

red card. But to the guys credit they dug deep and defended well.” On Saturday the Kings dominated play in the first half, but couldn’t convert, which eventually did them in. They trailed 1-0 at the break, which came at the wrong time, according to Fullarton. “We were putting a lot of pressure on them and dominating play at the time.” NAIT came on in the second half and controlled the play. “I have no complaints as they have a strong side and our effort was there.” Grant MacEwan won both the men’s and women’s titles, beating NAIT 3-1 in the men’s final and 3-2 in the women’s game.

Jeff Gordon celebrates winning the NASCAR Sprint Cup auto race at Martinsville Speedway in Martinsville, Va., Sunday. Kenseth led a racehigh 202 laps and was out front on the final restart with 77 laps remaining and Gordon lurking in third. Gordon stalked him for more than 50 laps, thinking to himself, “What would Jimmie Johnson do, or better yet, what would Richard Petty do?” before finally making the pass for the lead with 21 laps remaining. Gordon didn’t look back in snapping a 32-race losing streak dating to last year’s season finale at Homestead. “Matt drove a really first-class calibre race today and I didn’t know if we were going to get him, but it sure was awesome when we finally did and just kind of hoped there were no cautions,” Gordon said. The victory clinched the manufacturers’ championship for Chevrolet, which won for the 11th consecutive season and 37th time overall. Chevrolet did it this year in the debut season of its SS race car. Kenseth tied his career-best with a secondplace finish, closing the gap on Johnson, who was up four points as they came into one of Johnson’s best tracks and one of Kenseth’s worst tracks. He had to drive from the middle of the pack

to save his finish after a call not to pit midway through the race backfired, but Kenseth was still a bit disappointed not to leave with the victory. “Whenever your team puts you in front for that last run and you’re out there leading, you get beat, you’re always a little bit disappointed,” Kenseth said. “I just got beat by honestly experience and a better driver of this track. I was hesitant to change my line and do the things he was doing because what I was doing got me there. Just got too tight at the end. Wish I could do it over.” When it was time to leave, though, Kenseth found the silver lining. “I mean, gosh, for how Martinsville has been for me, how could you not be pleased?” he said. “The only guy happier is Jeff. I feel like when my team is at its best and we do everything right, I feel like we can race anybody at these next three tracks. Anything can happen, but man, we’re in it.” Clint Bowyer finished third, his best finish of the Chase, and moved two spots in the standings to sixth. Defending Sprint Cup champion Brad Keselowski, who is not part of the Chase, was fourth.

Packers 44 Vikings 31 MINNEAPOLIS — Aaron Rodgers has the Green Bay Packers on a roll, even without three of his best receivers. With help from a powerful running game, Rodgers picked apart what was left of Minnesota’s defence on Sunday night. Ignoring the injuries around him, Rodgers threw two first-half touchdown passes to Jordy Nelson and guided the Packers to a 44-31 victory over the Vikings on 24-for-29 passing for 285 yards. Christian Ponder’s encore went poorly for the Vikings (1-6), who sent out a different starting quarterback for the third straight week. Adrian Peterson gained a quiet 60 yards on 13 carries, Greg Jennings had just one catch against his old team and the Vikings offence counted only three plays in the third quarter as the Packers (52) pulled away in their final game at the Metrodome, now known as Mall of America Field. Ponder didn’t turn the ball over, but he was again out of sorts in the pocket all night and unable to make much happen at all if his intended target was

65+ MEN’S BASEBALL PHOENIX, Ariz. — The Red Deer Gary Moe Volkswagen Legends gave up three runs in the bottom of the eighth inning and lost 9-8 to the undefeated California Sonoma County Oaks in a 65+ World Baseball Championship semifinal Saturday. The Legends led 7-4 after plating three runs in the top of the seventh inning. The Oaks responded with two in the bottom of the frame and the Legends scored one in the top of the

eighth before Sonoma struck for three runs and the victory. The Gary Moe squad, led at the plate by Cliff Skibinski (three-for-four), stranded the tying run at second base in the top of the ninth. Ron Unrau had two walks and scored three runs for the Legends, while Lyle Lorenz was two-for-three with two walks and five stolen bases. Libinski and Greg Fisk shared pitching duties in a losing cause.

covered. He finished 14 for 21 for 145 yards against a defence missing three starting linebackers to injury and added a late touchdown run. The Vikings beat the Packers 3734 last December to make the playoffs. But they needed 199 yards rushing from Peterson and the best game of Ponder’s career to do it, because Rodgers has rarely found resistance from this defence in purple. In his last eight games against the Vikings, he has 22 touchdowns and only three interceptions while completing roughly three-quarters of his passes. The Packers have won seven of those. Micah Hyde had a punt return for a touchdown for the Packers, who never punted and held the ball for more than two-thirds of the game to counteract Cordarrelle Patterson’s opening 109-yard kickoff return for a touchdown. The Packers have won 15 of their last 16 games against NFC North teams. Patterson put the Vikings in front before Ponder even touched the ball, with a breathtaking run through the middle of Green Bay’s kickoff coverage that was so fast only Hyde, the rookie cornerback from Iowa, had a chance to tackle him. Even the longest possible play in the sport wasn’t enough for the Vikings to feel good about facing Rodgers, though.

Williams caps season with 11th win WTA CHAMPIONSHIPS BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS ISTANBUL, Turkey — The way this season has been going for Serena Williams, there was only one fitting way for it to end. Williams capped a career year in style Sunday, earning her 11th title of 2013 by coming from behind to beat Li Na 2-6, 6-3, 6-0 for her second straight WTA Championships crown. Williams became the eighth woman to win 11 or more titles in a year and the first since Martina Hingis had 12 in 1997. She is also the first to repeat as champion at the season-ending WTA Championships since Justine Henin in 2007. “It was an awesome year of tennis,” said Williams, who sank to her knees after firing a backhand winner on her second match point. The victory brought Williams’ prize money total for the year to $12,385,572. The only player, male or female, to earn more in a year was Novak Djokovic with $12,803,737 in 2012 and $12,619,803 in 2011. The American won her fourth WTA Championship, having captured the elite tournament for the top eight players also in her debut in 2001 and in 2009 and 2012. Williams has won 78 of 82 matches this year and will finish the year as the top-ranked player for the third time in her career after 2002 and 2009. Williams’ titles this year included the French and U.S. Opens for a total of 17 Grand Slam crowns. Her winning percentage of .951 is the best on the tour since 1990. Martina Navratilova had an 86-1 record and a .989 percentage in 1983. Still, Williams said she would have preferred to have won at least one more Grand Slam title. “I live to win slams. I mean, obviously I’m so excited to be the WTA champion,” Williams said. “I can’t

say it’s the best (season). I can’t say it’s not the best. I don’t know. I really don’t know.” Li was in her first WTA Championships final and will finish the year at a career-high No. 3. The final featured two players above the age of 30 for the first time in the championships’ 43-year history. Williams is 32 and Li is 31 but both are playing some of their best tennis. Li got off to a better start over a sluggish-looking Williams, who struggled a day earlier to beat Jelena Jankovic and complained later of being exhausted after a long season. “I felt good this morning, much better than I did yesterday, but then in practice I was like, ’Oh, no.’ I was a little worried, but I just hung in there and just kept going and going,” Williams said. The Chinese was quick to break serve for a 2-1 lead and rolled through the first set, which ended with Williams netting a forehand and hitting a backhand passing shot wide. Williams won a key game at the start of the second set that went to nine deuces and lasted nearly 12 minutes as the American fended off two break points before finally prevailing with a service winner. “I guess looking back it was definitely a very important game for me to win,” Williams said. “She had been on a real roll. I guess I was determined to win that game at any cost.” Li blasted an ace, her only one of the match, to level at 3-3. But she produced a double-fault and a forehand error to give Williams a chance to serve out the set. Williams needed three set points to close it out. “After a set and a half, I was feeling no more energy left. It’s a tough tournament, because I played five days in a row,” Li said. “Every opponent (is in the) top eight, so you never have an easy match in this tournament.” It was another double-fault by Li that gave Williams a break of serve at the start of the third and the American never looked back.

Woodland, Moore headed to playoff at CMIB Classic BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia — After a day of constant lead changes and rain delays, Gary Woodland and Ryan Moore will have to wait one more day to decide who takes home the CIMB Classic trophy. Woodland and Moore finished tied for the lead at 14-under 274 after the final round on Sunday, a stroke ahead of Kiradech Aphibarnrat and Chris Stroud at 13 under. The sudden-death playoff was postponed until Monday morning due to darkness. In a steady rain with shadows being cast by the floodlights overhead, Woodland had a chance to win the title on the 18th hole but missed a 10-foot birdie putt just wide by an inch. “I thought I made it when I looked up and it just broke too much at the end there,” he said. “But it was a tough day and obviously to come down to the last putt, obviously I’d like to have made it.” Moore, the co-overnight leader, made a nice up-and-down recovery after hitting into the rough to salvage par and force the playoff. “I was scrambling there on the last hole just to somehow make a par and kind of see what happens at that point,

and fortunately, I still get another shot at it,” he said. The back nine was filled with suspense as the names atop the leaderboard kept shuffling back and forth and thunderstorms twice delayed play for a total of about 3 ½ hours. Woodland, Moore and Kiradech made the turn with a share of the lead, but Woodland moved one clear with a 10-foot birdie putt on the 10th hole— his first outright lead of the tournament. He didn’t hold onto it for long, however, bogeying the 11th to move back into a three-way tie. Kiradech also had chances to move ahead with two birdie putts within six feet on the 11th and 12th holes that he missed by inches. On the next hole, a much longer birdie putt caught the outside edge of the hole and curled away, causing the Thai golfer to cringe and drop his head in frustration. Woodland birdied again on the 14th to go up a stroke before play was suspended by lightning for the second time, with only nine golfers left on the course. When they returned to the course in a driving rain, however, Moore holed a 4-footer for birdie on the 16th to tie it up again and both players parred the rest of the way. Both Woodland and Moore are aiming for their third PGA Tour title. Woodland, whose world golf ranking had dipped to 268th this summer, has

Pettersen successfully defends Taiwan title for fourth win of season THE ASSOCIATED PRESS YANGMEI, Taiwan — Suzann Pettersen successfully defended her title in the LPGA Taiwan Championship on Sunday for her fourth tour victory of the year and third in her last five starts. The Norwegian star closed with a 3-under 69 for a five-stroke victory over Solheim Cup teammate Azahara Munoz. Pettersen finished at 9-under 279 and earned $300,000 for her 14th LPGA Tour title. She has five LPGA Tour victories in Asia and won a Ladies European Tour event in China this year. “It feels great to come here and defend my title and play as well as I did,” Pettersen said. “It was very tough out there. Since the very first shot on Thursday, the conditions gave us a very big challenge. Today, Azahara gave me an even

bigger challenge. She played really good on the front nine well. She played really good all around. I think I can almost thank her for keep pressing and keep pushing me because I just had to keep staying aggressive and try to make birdies.” Munoz, the former Arizona State player from Spain, shot a 70. She was within a stroke after Pettersen bogeyed the par5 ninth, but fell back on the back nine. Pettersen birdied Nos. 13, 14 and 18, and Munoz birdied the 12th before dropping stokes on Nos. 13 and 16. “I was 4 under through 12 holes, and I was really playing really well,” Munoz said. “I made two bogeys coming in, but I hit two really good shots and one came up short and one came up long. Just misjudged the wind a little bit, but I played really well.” Sweden’s Caroline Hedwall, another Euro-

BMW MASTERS BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS SHANGHAI, China — Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano called it the perfect win, even though his final hole Sunday to win the BMW Masters was anything but perfect. Fernandez-Castano chipped in from across the green for birdie on the tough 17th hole at Lake Malaren to build a three-shot lead. Then, he let memories of Jean Van de Velde’s collapse creep into his head, and only when the 33-year-old Spaniard holed a 2-foot putt for double bogey did he exhale. “I made it a little more complicated,” Fernandez-Castano said. He still closed with a 4-under 68 for a one-shot win over Francesco Moli-

been in excellent form since August when he won the Reno-Tahoe Open and earned a last-minute spot in the PGA Championship. He then finished in a tie for second behind Adam Scott at The Barclays a couple weeks later. Moore is coming off a top-10 finish at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open in Las Vegas last weekend, an event he won in 2012. “Obviously we’re both playing really well,” Woodland said. “We’re going to come out and you’re going to try to have to make birdies because Ryan is going to do that and I’m going to try to do the same. “Changing a flight is not the end of the world to come back and have a playoff tomorrow.” For Kiradech, who won the Malaysian Open title earlier this year on the same course in Kuala Lumpur, it was a lost opportunity to become the first Thai winner on the PGA Tour and earn a two-year tour exemption and invitations to the Masters, PGA Champion-

ship and a host of other lucrative tournaments. He said he let his nerves get to him down the stretch. “The front nine, I played good golf, just concentrate on the greens, didn’t look for the results, just tried to play my best golf. When the back nine (came), I have the chance to win. Every time I look at a scoreboard, they put a lot of pressure (on) me,” he said. Australian Aaron Baddeley shot a 6-under 66 to finish in fifth at 12-under 276, a stroke ahead of Jimmy Walker in sixth. Canadian Graham DeLaet, who briefly took a share of the lead on the back nine Sunday before faltering with a bogey and double bogey, was level in seventh place with Harris English and Charles Howell III at 10-under 278. Phil Mickelson finished in a tie for 19th at 5-under 283 after shooting a 74, his worst round of the week. But he was nonetheless pleased with his game, days after proclaiming his swing to be “as far off as it’s ever been.”

pean Solheim Cup player, was third at 2 under after a 70. The second-ranked Pettersen won the LPGA Lotte in Hawaii in April and had consecutive victories in September in the Safeway Classic in Oregon and the Evian Championship in France. She pushed her season money total to $2,241,847, leaving her $93,613 behind topranked Inbee Park with three tournaments left. Park, a six-time winner this year, did not compete in Taiwan. Pettersen also is trying to pass Park in the world ranking. “Yeah, being No. 2 is pretty much the first loser and I’ve been No. 2 behind four great No. 1s,” Pettersen said. “I’ve been No. 2 behind Annika (Sorenstam), I was No. 2 behind Lorena (Ochoa), I was No. 2 behind Yani (Tseng) and I’m No. 2 behind Inbee.

nari (64) and Thongchai Jaidee (66). Luke Guthrie, the 23-year-old American playing in Asia for the first time, didn’t make a birdie until the 13th hole and closed with a 71 to finish alone in fourth, two shots behind. Fernandez-Castano gave Spain its first European Tour win this year, extending the streak to 20 years of at least one Spanish victory. But this was more for him than country. The victory gets Fernandez-Castano into the HSBC Champions next week in Shanghai, critical for him to stay in the hunt for the Race to Dubai. He moved up from No. 35 to No. 4 in the standings, and the World Golf Championship offers $8.5 million in prize money. He won 851,346 euros at the BMW Masters, putting him well ahead on the European Points portion of the Ryder Cup standings.

LUANN Oct. 28 1864 — The Quebec Conference adjourns after weeks of discussion and debate. The delegates from Canada, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and P.E.I. summarize proceedings in a blueprint for Confederation called Seventy-Two Resolutions (Quebec Resolutions), which are sent to the British Parliament and the provincial legislatures for approval; it will take two more years before
