He mentioned Bell TV as one example of how customers will be better served under Bell. The service allows people to stream live and on-demand television over their phones and mobile devices. Currently it is available to Bell customers, but not Latitude customers. Existing Latitude customers will keep their phones and phone numbers. The conditions of their contracts will be the same under Bell. The actual transfer of contracts will likely take place early next year, said Flaherty. After that, customers will begin to receive their bills from Bell instead of from Latitude. Prepaid customers will likely be the last to switch over, he said. Bell has committed to fulfilling the promises that NorthwesTel made in its five-year modernization plan, said Flaherty. That plan would see 4G cellular service expanded to almost all communities across the North. The CRTC is currently reviewing the plan, and has yet to make a ruling. Bell did not respond to a request for comment by press time. Contact Jacqueline Ronson at jronson@yukon-news.com

Ski hill to open this winter Jesse Winter News Reporter

M

ount Sima will open this winter. When Friends of Sima president Laurie Henderson made the announcement to a packed press conference on Tuesday afternoon, the room erupted in cheers and applause. “There is absolutely no doubt, no doubt in my mind that we couldn’t have done this without the significant support of the Whitehorse community,” Henderson said. The society plans to have the hill open for skiing by Dec. 20, assuming the weather cooperates. “In the 30 years I’ve lived here, I’ve never seen anything like this, and I’m very proud to be a part of it,” she said. Over the course of the fall, the Friends of Sima have pulled off a surprisingly successful fundraising campaign, bringing in more than 800 pledges to buy seasons passes, and amassing more commitments from local business, ski and snowboard associations, and the territorial government. But when Friends’ vice-president Rod Taylor was asked at a press conference two weeks ago how much actual cash the society had, he emptied his jeans pockets and shrugged. In order to make their scheme work, the society was hoping to make good on 85 per cent of those 800 pledges. They came close, converting 500 (or just over 61 per cent) into

Friends of Mount Sima’s Laurie Henderson and Rod Taylor celebrate a successful campaign to keep the ski hill alive with a prize draw on Tuesday at the Sport Yukon building. Yukon Freestyle president Lynda Harlow, right, pulls a winner. $215,000 in cash in the bank. Combined with commitments of $70,000 from the Yukon government, $20,000 each from the hill’s three user groups – Snowboard Yukon, and the alpine and freestyle ski associations – and another $70,000 from Softball Yukon, the ski society has a total commitment of around $500,000.

“We have about $500,000 and we need about $1 million to run the hill for the winter,” Taylor said. Most ski hills are lucky if they can open with 25 per cent of their total operating funds already in the bank, he added. The trail to Tuesday’s announcement wasn’t a smooth run.

Originally, the Yukon government’s contribution had depended on a “significant” contribution from the City of Whitehorse. Earlier this fall, the society had approached the city asking for $72,000 to help run the hill, but the city refused. After that disappointment, Softball Yukon stepped into fill

the gap, offering a $20,000 gift and a $50,000 one-time loan, and the Yukon government promised to honour its commitment with or without the city. “As you know, taking over from (the Great Northern Ski Society) has been a bit of a challenge,” Henderson said. “This is not risk free, what we’re doing. Opening a ski hill of this magnitude is a complicated thing. We have Don Wilson, who has long been involved with the hill. He has agreed to be our acting general manager. Snow, weather … we have to keep those things in mind,” Henderson said. The society will continue its fundraising drive. Taylor said until now, the society had focused on approaching businesses with a close connection to the hill because they wanted to avoid asking for too much before they could commit to opening the facility. With that promise now made, he said the society will be looking to the broader business community for sponsorship, and hopes to keep selling season passes as the winter gets closer. The current price for season passes - $395 for an adult - will remain in place until Halloween. Starting Nov. 1 it will be going up, Henderson said, though she didn’t say what the increase would be.

Leef named chair of northern caucus Yukon MP Ryan Leef has a new job description. Along with his regular duties as the territory’s member of Parliament, Leef is the new chair of the government’s northern caucus. “Essentially, I’m now responsible for organizing the group and the agenda items, the meeting times and stuff. It’s a small group, small but mighty,” he said. The northern caucus includes Leef, Environment Minister Leona Aglukkaq, Yukon Senator Dan Lang and Nunavut Senator Dennis Patterson. Senator Patterson was the previous chair. The N.W.T. isn’t part of the northern caucus because it has an NDP MP, Dennis Bevington, and a Liberal senator, Nick Sibbeston. “We meet on a weekly basis to talk about pan-territorial issues. We each have an appreciation for what’s going on in our territories. We combine common themes and advice to the prime minister and the federal ministers to enhance their understanding of the North,” Leef said. The group isn’t directly connected to the Arctic Council, but Aglukkaq chairs that group. Being able to discuss Yukon and northern issues with her means she can forward concerns to the Arctic Council, said Leef. (Jesse Winter)

though Manning may be an addict himself, he was also clearly part of a commercial organization, as opposed to someone selling only to maintain his habit. Others charged as a result of the undercover operation have already been sentenced. In the case of crimes like this, it is important to send a message that “if you traffic drugs in the North you are going to jail,” the lawyer said. The amount of drugs sold combined with the commercial nature of the operation means jail is required, Phillips said. Manning’s lawyer, Jennifer Cunningham, argued that her client would be well suited for a conditional sentence in the community with strict conditions. After being released on bail last September, two months after his arrest, he had to abide

by strict conditions including a curfew and had no problems, she said. She argued that Manning, who has been using cocaine since he was 17, was “not fully of mind” during the six months he was interacting with the undercover officer. If he was not an addict, he would not have been in that situation, she said. Since being released on bail he has been attending counselling and Narcotics Anonymous meetings, where he received his 12-month chip, a symbol of a year of sobriety. During that time he went to Yukon College, was a student in the carpentry program, and hopes to eventually get his journeyman’s certificate, she said. Speaking for himself at the end of the hearing, Manning called the Yukon College program “a pleasure” and said it gave him a career and direction

his life has never had. In high school he couldn’t imagine a life without drugs, he said. “By the time you realize you don’t call the shots anymore, you give up,” he said of his addiction. He said he went from getting high three or four times a week to every day. Manning claims he “almost lost his life a handful of times” after nearly overdosing. Phillips was skeptical of that claim. She pointed out that the undercover officer said Manning looked healthy. Manning told the judge he “deserves everything that is happening to me right now” and that he has spent the last 14 months trying to make amends. Contact Ashley Joannou at ashleyj@yukon-news.com

New condominium rules coming Jacqueline Ronson News Reporter

T

he Yukon government is fast-tracking new condominium laws for the territory. The Condominium Act was enacted in 1976 and no longer meets the requirements of today’s developers, owners and boards. And with condo development and sales ballooning in the Yukon, that has led to some problems. Helen Booth is the president of Whitehorse Condominium Board 95, which represents condo owners in Falcon Ridge. The lack of clear rules has left that board embroiled in more than one legal fight with the developer. “As the president there, I’ve been uniquely positioned to see how the act has been misinterpreted by a number of people in the Yukon, and how those misinterpretations have led to significant problems for owners over the years,” said Booth. Updating the act is a great first step, but educating people about how to interpret the new rules will also be crucial, she said. “So far the documents that have come out have been really plain language and straightforward and easy for people to understand, but that’s going to need to continue so that we don’t have people kind of just making different interpretations about how to deal with certain issues on their own.” Sonny Gray is a property manager and condo owner in Whitehorse. He also leads the Whitehorse Condo Association, which represents condo owners. The lack of appropriate rules

for reserve funds and condo fee studies can be a big problem for owners, he said. Older condos in particular tend to set condo fees based on day-to-day operating costs, he said. That becomes a problem when a big capital investment is required, like a roof replacement. “Most developers are pricing units, in terms of condo fees, to sell. So they’ll lowball the condo fee. They don’t do a study. And that’s something that’s a big deal. It should be

mandatory to do a condo fee study prior to selling units. “That should be the basis of your condo fee. Not a number you just pulled out of a hat that will sell.” As a property manager, he’s often coming into developments and breaking the bad news that condo fees will have to go up to cover long-term costs, he said. “I’d say 95 per cent of the time when we take on a new contract as a property manager, we’re the bad guys. Because we

come through the door and we go, ‘OK, well you guys are going to have to increase your condo fees.’ And they go, ‘Oh, well if we hadn’t hired you guys, we wouldn’t have had to increase them.’ Well, no, you would have, one way or another. You had to.” The government has done a great job engaging with stakeholders on updating the act, he said. “So far, we’ve been involved with every step of the process, which is excellent. We couldn’t

ask for anything better.” The government has begun drafting the new legislation, and hopes to have it ready for the fall of 2014, according to a news release. That’s great news, said Gray. “We got it bumped, really, because they were shooting for 2015. So the fact is that 2014 is months away, we’re on track. It would be nice to have it for the fall of next year.” Contact Jacqueline Ronson at jronson@yukon-news.com

ing the territorial government to implement this for a few years, she said. “Most other jurisdictions in Canada and in other countries have an electronic health record, and it has shown to be highly beneficial to pharmacists, physicians and other health-care providers.” Dr. Rao Tadepalli, president of the Yukon Medical Association, said that the issue of electronic health records has been on the agenda for at least eight years. Patients often assume that the doctor has their full medical history in front of them, when that is often not true, he said. “At the end of the day we depend on you to tell us if you’ve taken the medication. There’s a lot of history missing.” Living said that establishing a prescription tracking system is only one part of a much lar-

ger project to bring electronic health records to the Yukon. “It’s not as easy as just setting up a tracking system for one program. There are a number of other things that have to come into place before we can even look at that.” One complicating factor is that all the groups who might need access to health records are currently all working with different systems, she said. And it’s not just doctors and pharmacists that deal with prescription medications, said Living. Dentists and some nurses, too, have limited powers to prescribe. “How do we make everything work together?” The government has been looking at this seriously for a while, but it’s not as simple as it might seem, said Living.

that most Yukoners will not be aware of: a proposal from the YMA that would see government pay physicians thousands of extra dollars for taking on new patients. It’s a proposal we are resisting. Physicians are self-employed and like all self-employed workers, they can work as much or as little as they choose, either part-time, full-time, or with many extra hours. The government pays the physicians for each service a patient receives. The resulting pay for general practitioners ranges from $140,000 to a current high of $959,000 for the top

paid family physician in Whitehorse. The average hovers around the $317,000 mark, with a number who make in excess of $650,000 per annum. These are fee-for-service general practitioners, not specialists such as general surgeons or obstetricians. Government also provides physicians with funding for continuing medical education, education support, locum support, maternity/ paternity benefits, office start-up, office renovation, physician re-location, assistance to new graduates of the College of Family Physicians

and the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons to cover some educational expenses, medical practice insurance, and recruitment and retention bonuses for physicians. From our perspective, the Yukon government is already doing its share to support physicians. Our responsibility now is to ensure recruitment efforts continue and to examine new service delivery models that will benefit Yukoners, along with the valuable services traditionally provided by physicians.

Alison Anderson, the territorTheir equivalent of the Yukon government recently revoked ial minister of regional develop-

ment, responded by saying the mining sector shouldn’t be concerned by the decision. The Northern Territory’s chief minister, Adam Giles, seems to have more confidence in territorial lawyers than Yukon minister Currie Dixon, who said earlier this year that Yukon government lawyers aren’t as good as the lawyers who work for Chevron (which owns big claims in the Peel watershed). Northern Manganese has filed for compensation of over $1 billion, which works out to about 20 per cent of the Northern Territory’s budget. Of course, the claim hasn’t been approved by the court and the actual payout, if any, could be much smaller. Two other companies may also file big claims. Furthermore, despite attempts by Chief Minister Giles and his government to attract mining investment to the Northern Territory, the controversy seems sure to worry mining investors thinking about projects in other parts of the territory. The Northern Territory, however, is not as dependent on the mining industry as the Yukon is. Giles recently said that about $5 billion of the giant Inpex natural gas project will flow to local businesses, which is expected to create several thousand jobs. The Northern Territory also has a relatively large tour-

ism business. A friend tells me that the Barramundi fishing is superb, although the crocodiles, sharks and deadly jellyfish make salmon fishing with grizzlies look low risk. The Groote Eylandt controversy provides a few lessons for us. First, making big go/no-go decisions at the political level without solid technical advice can create big problems. The Northern Territory seems not to have a credible and trusted environmental assessment process. They don’t have a version of our Yukon Environmental and Socio-economic Assessment Board. YESAB may not be perfect, but it does do a good job in general of assembling the scientific facts on a specific project and weighing the social, economic and environmental pros and cons before making a recommendation to the powers that be. The Yukon legislature’s committee on fracking is supposed to report next spring. Do they have a credible technical secretariat to support their deliberations, or will they be trying to sift through conflicting presentations from industry, government departments and environmental groups themselves? It will be a daunting task for any MLAs who aren’t, for example, petroleum engineers or hydrologists.

On climate change, for example, the world’s governments have set up a scientist-led body called the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change to make technical reports that politicians can use as they make decisions. Critically, these scientific reports are public. IPCC reports are not controversy-free, as any surfer of climate change conspiracy web sites can attest, but think how much more confused and controversial the issue would be if governments were working without these facts on the table. Second, delayed decisions can drive controversy and cost. Seabed mining has not suddenly become controversial. If the Northern Territory government had made a decision before industry had spent millions on preliminary exploration, they might have saved themselves a lot of trouble. Finally, politicians in a large jurisdiction have to be very careful about the legal risks they run. If the politicians in Darwin have really exposed the Northern Territory to a billion-dollar settlement, that will have a devastating impact on government services.

Are chicks brighter than babies? by NICHOLAS D. KRISTOF

S

ome Americans are wondering whether to eat chicken in the aftermath of the latest salmonella outbreak. But there’s another reason to avoid poultry, and that’s the inhumane way birds are often raised. We tend to feel more sympathy for calves with large, cute eyes, but, as an Oregon farmboy, I have to say that poultry are far from the nitwits we assume – and of the two-legged folk I’ve met over the decades, some of the most admirable have been geese. Even as a boy, I was struck that our geese mated for life, showing each other tenderness and support without obvious marital squabbles or affairs. If there are philandering geese, I have never met one. I remember being impressed by the way our geese shared

family obligations. A mother goose would sit on her nest, while her mate would set out into the fields and find, say, an overlooked stash of corn kernels. Instead of sneaking a few for himself, he would rush them back to his “wife.” The nobility of geese was most on display at execution time. My job as an 11-year-old when we beheaded the geese was to capture a bird and take it to the chopping block as my dad wielded the ax. So I would rush at the terrified flock and randomly grab an unlucky goose. The bird in my arms would honk in terror and try to escape, and the other geese would cower in the corner of the barn. Then one goose would emerge from the flock and walk tremulously toward me, terrified but unwilling to abandon its mate. It would waddle after me toward the chopping block, trying to honk comfort to its mate. Even as a child, I was awed. This was raw courage and fidelity – and maybe conjugal love, although it sounds hokey to say

so – that made me wonder if these animals were actually our moral superiors. Maybe my farmboy recollections reflect anthropomorphism or soggy sentimentality. But, in the last decade or so, scientists have conducted experiments that tend to confirm the notion that poultry are smarter and more sophisticated than we give them credit for. For starters, hens can count – at least to six. They can be taught that food is in the sixth hole from the left and they will go straight to it. Even chicks can do basic arithmetic, so that if you shuffle five items in a shell game, they mentally keep track of additions and subtractions and choose the area with the higher number of items. In a number of such tests, chicks do better than toddlers. A lengthy study this year from the University of Bristol in Britain, The Intelligent Hen, lays out the evidence for the chicken as an intellectual. The study also notes that hens are willing to delay gratification if the reward is right. Researchers in one study

gave hens the option of two keys, one of which would wait two seconds and then give the hen three seconds of food, and the other would force a wait of six seconds but offer 22 seconds of food. After learning that trade-off, 93 percent of hens preferred the delay with more food. Chickens communicate with different calls to warn about ground predators and birds of prey. Still other calls signal food. Hens are social animals, preferring the companionship of those they know to strangers. They recover more quickly from stress when they are with an acquaintance. Their brains are good at multitasking, for the right eye looks out for food, while the left watches for predators and potential mates. Poultry watch television, and, in one experiment, learned from watching birds on TV how to find food in particular bowls. Look, farmbirds are not Einsteins. But evidence is mounting that they’re smarter than we have assumed, and just

because they don’t have big brown eyes doesn’t mean that they should be condemned to spend their lives jammed into tiny cages in stinking, fetid barns, with bodies of dead birds sometimes left rotting beside live ones. I don’t know myself where to draw the lines. I eat meat, so this entire column may be braised in hypocrisy. But just as we try to protect dogs and cats from undue suffering, without necessarily considering them our equals, it makes sense to minimize animal suffering more broadly when we can. So even when there are no salmonella outbreaks, there are good reasons to keep away from wretched birds raised in factory farms. For my part, whenever I’m offered goose, I think back to my childhood and see those brave birds stepping forward, gallantly trying to console their mates. Whatever we make of these animals, we needn’t scorn them as “birdbrains.” Nicholas D. Kristof writes about international affairs for the New York Times.

Prime minister ordered me to repay disallowed expenses, Duffy tells Senate Jennifer Ditchburn and Joan Bryden The Canadian Press

OTTAWA en. Mike Duffy says Prime Minister Stephen Harper, concerned about how the senator’s burgeoning expense scandal was going over with the Conservative “base,” ordered him to repay $90,000 in disallowed housing allowance claims. In a riveting speech to his Senate colleagues, Duffy spun a tale of “conspiracy” as he described a February meeting with Harper and his then chief of staff, Nigel Wright, during which the senator pleaded his innocence. “But the prime minister wasn’t interested in explanations or the truth,” Duffy said, recounting what Harper himself told him. “’It’s not about what you did,”’ Duffy quoted Harper as saying. “’It’s about the perception of what you did that’s been created in the media. The rules are inexplicable to our base’ … “I was ordered by the prime minister to pay the money back, end of discussion.” Duffy said when he later complained that he couldn’t afford to pay the money back, Wright offered to “write the cheque.” He does not, however, make clear whether Harper was privy to that part of the discussion.

S

Duffy said he spoke by telephone several times with Wright, repeatedly insisting that to “pay back money I didn’t owe would destroy my reputation.” “The PMO piled on the pressure. Some honourable senators called me in P.E.I. One senator in particular left several particularly nasty and menacing messages: ‘Do what the prime minister wants, do it for the PM and for the good of the party.’ “Finally, the message from the PMO became, ‘Do what we want or else.”’ The “else,” Duffy said, was that the Conservatives on the powerful steering committee of the Senate’s board of internal economy, David Tkachuk and Carolyn Stewart Olsen, would declare him unqualified to sit as a senator. “’However, if you do what we want, the prime minister will publicly confirm that you’re entitled to sit as a senator for P.E.I. and you won’t lose your seat,”’ Duffy quoted Wright as saying. “I said, ‘They don’t have the power to do that.’ He said, ‘Agree to what we want right now or else.”’ Duffy said he made one last effort, arguing he’d done nothing wrong and didn’t have the money to reimburse the Senate in any event. “’Don’t worry,’ Nigel said. ‘I’ll write the cheque. Let the lawyers handle the details, you just follow the

plan and we’ll keep Carolyn Stewart Olsen and David Tkachuk at bay.”’ Tkachuk rose immediately after Duffy to vehemently deny either he or Stewart Olsen were part of a conspiracy to force Duffy to accept Wright’s deal. “Nothing could be further from the truth,” he told the chamber. Indeed, he noted that his internal economy committee issued a statement in late February specifically noting that it didn’t have the mandate or jurisdiction to make any findings as to whether senators met the constitutional requirement that they be resident in the provinces which they were appointed to represent. Duffy said at least two PMO lawyers were involved in crafting the deal. Duffy is protected from legal action over the allegations because his comments were made in the Senate chamber. He also did not provide documentation, though claimed to have written material that would back up his allegations. The embattled senator’s remarkable narrative – his first extensive public comments since the scandal erupted earlier this year – comes as the Senate debates the merits of a concerted Conservative effort to censure him and two other former Conservative colleagues. Duffy and former Conservative caucus colleagues Pamela Wallin and

Patrick Brazeau face the prospect of suspension without pay for “gross negligence” in their management of Senate resources. A number of Conservative and Liberal senators say the move amounts to finding the trio, who are under RCMP investigation, guilty before they’ve been charged or convicted of any crime. Duffy and Wallin have threatened to challenge the move in court and Brazeau is asking for a public hearing into his expenses. Citing numerous court rulings in the past, Claude Carignan – government leader in the Senate – maintained the Senate has the exclusive power to govern its own internal affairs and to impose sanctions on those who break its rules. The Senate has already concluded that Duffy and Brazeau broke the rules for claiming housing allowances and living expenses and that Wallin broke the rules for claiming travel expenses, he noted. And he said all three have recognized their transgressions by agreeing to reimburse the chamber. The violations “occurred in such a manner and with such frequency

that it constitutes wilful contempt to our institution,” Carignan said, arguing that they “must act with disciplinary action to protect its dignity as well as preserve the public trust in the Senate and Parliament.” Liberal Senate leader James Cowan proposed that the motions be referred to a special committee that could hold public hearings and give the three senators a chance to air their side of the story. While he stressed that he has “no sympathy for these three senators” and believes they should be disciplined, Cowan said they are entitled to due process. Sen. Marjory LeBreton responded briefly to an allegation from Duffy’s lawyer, Donald Bayne, that she wrote to Duffy in 2009 telling him that Senate residency rules were not defined. Asked whether she had sent him such a message, LeBreton said, “Absolutely not.”

EU deal puts Mulcair’s pro-trade rhetoric to the test Joan Bryden Canadian Press

OTTAWA ut up or shut up. That’s the politically unpalatable choice facing NDP Leader Tom Mulcair, now that the Harper government has inked a tentative free-trade agreement with the European Union. Since taking the helm of the NDP some 19 months ago, Mulcair has tried hard to put a more moderate face on the party’s traditional anti-trade tendencies. He’s championed fast-track freetrade negotiations with Japan and pushed for priority talks with India, Brazil and South Africa. Yet so far, the NDP under Mulcair’s watch has actually supported only one trade deal, with Jordan. He’s been walking a tightrope on the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement, or CETA, with the EU. Mulcair has professed enthusiastic support in principle for a deal, while simultaneously expressing grave concerns about Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s ability to negotiate a deal that doesn’t sell out dairy farmers, forbid municipalities and provinces from adopting buy-local procurement policies or result in skyrocketing prescription drug costs. New Democrats are continuing to walk that fine line for now, insisting they can’t conclude whether the

P

deal is, on balance, a good or bad thing for Canada until they’ve seen the text – which has yet to be final and may be months, even years, down the road. “We cannot really take a position on this until we see the text of an agreement. … We do have to take into account the impact on all industrial and commercial sectors,” deputy trade critic Guy Caron said in an interview Friday. “If we judge that the deal is overall good for Canada, then we will support it. If we feel that Canada is not coming out well from this deal, then we’ll oppose it. But at this point, it’s really too early to say.” Eventually, however, Mulcair will be pushed off his tightrope and the fall, on either side, carries political risk for the NDP. If he winds up opposing the deal, he’ll be painted by Harper as an anti-trade extremist and risks jeopardizing his efforts to reassure the business community that the NDP would be prudent public administrators. The Conservatives aren’t waiting for Mulcair to take a position on the deal. In a taste of what’s in store if the NDP comes out against CETA, Tory MPs have already adopted a new mantra: While Harper is pursuing free trade, the NDP supports “no trade” and the Liberals support “the drug trade.” The latter is a snide reference to Justin Trudeau’s support for legalizing marijuana. But the trade deal

with the EU has not actually been much of an issue for the Liberal leader, who has declared his party to be “resolutely pro-trade, pro-free trade,” although he, too, is awaiting the text. On this issue, the Tories are training their big guns on the NDP. In the House of Commons on Friday, Conservative MPs repeatedly accused Mulcair of opposing the deal – and all the jobs and economic opportunity they maintained will go with it – before he even sees it. In Brussels, Harper didn’t name the NDP specifically but clearly had the party in mind when he

dismissed ideological opponents of free trade as “a very small and extreme part” of the political spectrum in Canada. If, on the other hand, Mulcair ultimately supports the deal, he risks alienating many of the NDP’s traditional allies in the labour and anti-globalization movements, not to mention potentially angering voters in rural Quebec, where both NDP support and the dairy industry are concentrated. “From a workers’ perspective and defending the interests of workers in Canada, we’ve expressed grave concerns on that (deal) and

we would hope that the party, reading the stuff that we’ve put out and other groups have put out, would share those concerns,” said Angelo Dicaro, national representative for Unifor, the country’s largest privatesector union. While Unifor is also awaiting the text to see if its worst fears are confirmed, Dicaro said leaks thus far suggest the CETA is less a trade deal than a “corporate bill of rights,” which would enhance the ability of corporations and private investors to “do as they see fit.” The Trade Justice Network – which includes a cross-section of Canadian labour, environmental, farmers, student, health, human rights and public interest organizations, most of which would normally be sympathetic to the NDP – issued a statement Friday demanding immediate release of the draft text of the deal and a public review of it. “What we have seen strongly suggests it is a bad deal for Canada,” the network said. While it’s responsible for the NDP to reserve judgment until it has seen the text, Council of Canadians trade campaigner Stuart Trew said he’s concerned the government won’t release the text until the deal is signed. “If the NDP – or any party, for that matter – would like to see parts of this deal changed, then the only opportunity to do that is prior to the signing.”

Conservatives throw down gauntlet with media Lee-Anne Goodman and Mike Blanchfield Canadian Press

OTTAWA rime Minister Stephen Harper and his Conservative caucus members are back at work in Ottawa and spoiling, it seems, for a fight – and not just with their traditional House of Commons rivals. These days, while Liberal and NDP members of Parliament are sporting their share of political shiners, so too are the journalists who cover them. Sparring between the Prime Minister’s Office and the Parliamentary Press Gallery is hardly new. But the gloves came off on Wednesday when a dispute over access to a government caucus meeting turned into a Conservative fundraising pitch. Most of the media gallery refused to show up for Harper’s speech to caucus members on Oct. 16 when his office insisted on allowing only photographers and TV cameras to attend – no reporters. Before the day was out, the Conservatives were using the dispute to raise money – a fundraising letter accused the “Ottawa media elite” of sinking to a “new low” – in hopes of turning Canada’s love-hate relationship with its journalists to the party’s political benefit. In closing the door to reporters, the Prime Minister’s Office was surely mindful of the last time it invited the media to a caucus meeting – this one at the height of the controversy surrounding Harper’s chief of staff, Nigel Wright, and his $90,000 cheque to Mike Duffy. On that day last May, reporters shouted questions at Harper as he entered the room and took the podium, demanding to know more about why Wright – who resigned his post just days earlier – had paid off the embattled senator. So when reporters were barred from Wednesday’s caucus meeting, television, radio and print outlets – with the exception of Sun Media – refused to cover the speech, insisting their journalists be allowed in rather than having to rely on the PMO’s own transcripts.

P

However, Dave Ellis – the cameraman in question – was told he would not be allowed to cover Harper’s trip to Malaysia and Indonesia the following week, even though he was already accredited to attend. Ultimately, the PMO backed down and allowed Ellis to board Harper’s plane. “They are remarkably effective at fundraising, so they’ll pick these fights and then send out a fundraising email and say: ‘See, we’re standing up for you,”’ said Jansen. “And they also believe the average Canadian simply doesn’t care that the media is shut out of events, that it’s not an issue that is going to cause them any trouble on election day.” Christopher Waddell, director of the School of Journalism and Communication at Carleton University in Ottawa, called the Conservatives’ anti-media tactics puzzling.

In budget deal, Obama emerges stronger, but victory comes with strings attached Julie Pace Associated Press

WASHINGTON resident Barack Obama emerged far stronger than his Republican adversaries in Washington’s latest fiscal fight. He gave away virtually nothing and his hard-line tactics exposed deep divisions among Republicans and growing public frustration with the conservative party. But Obama’s victory came with strings attached. Under his watch, big swaths of the federal government were shuttered for 16 days, forcing hundreds of thousands of workers off the job and restricting many services. The nation was brought to the brink of a default for the second time in two years. Congress’ last-minute deal generated yet another round of looming deadlines on the same issues – funding the government and raising the country’s borrowing limit to prevent a default on its obligations. And there is no guarantee that Republican opposition to Obama’s objectives will be dampened in any way. “What comes next is very unpredictable,” said Steve Schmidt, a Republican strategist. “The notion that this group of people is going to be chastened by this, while it seems obvious, is uncertain.” Indeed, there’s little consensus among Republicans about how to proceed in the aftermath of the budget crisis. Some conservatives who demanded changes to Obama’s health care law in exchange for funding the government have signalled they’re ready to dig in for another fight. Among them is Kansas Rep. Tim Huelskamp, who said Republicans may have “lost the battle but we’re going to win the war.” But other Republican lawmakers are demanding that their party make a course correction. “Hopefully, the lesson is to stop this foolish childishness,” said John McCain, the longtime Arizona

senator who ran unsuccessfully for president against Obama in 2008. Republicans will have to quickly settle on a strategy. The deal that ended this month’s standoff only keeps the government open through Jan. 15 and extends borrowing authority through Feb. 7, though emergency measures may give the administration another month before reaching the debt limit. The agreement also requires bipartisan negotiators to issue a report by Dec. 13 on broader budget issues like spending levels and deficit reduction – matters over which the White House and congressional Republicans have long been at odds. What happens during this next round of deadlines will help clarify whether Obama’s October win has

Marianne managed the production and delivery of 37,230 patient meals during her career –a commendable accomplishment.

Marianne also led many key strategic initiatives within the Nutrition and Food Services department.

done anything to alter the political dynamic in Washington or whether it was an isolated achievement. The White House said the president is entering the next phase of the debate with a similarly unyielding strategy. Aides said he is willing to make concessions as part of a larger budget deal but won’t let Republicans make funding the government or lifting the debt ceiling contingent on certain outcomes. Some Republican leaders had assumed Obama would abandon that hard-line stance during the most recent debate. Many were taking their lessons from the last budget and debt fight in 2011, when Obama indeed made concessions to keep the government open and avoid a default.

But Republicans misread how political shifts in Washington over the past two years had affected the president, and in particular how Obama’s resolve had been stiffened by the fact he doesn’t have to run for office again. Staunch conservatives also ignored warnings from more moderate Republicans, who argued that Obama would never agree to changes in the health care law, which is intended to provide coverage for millions of uninsured Americans and remains the president’s signature legislative achievement. “A fundamental flaw – and probably the biggest flaw – was that they were negotiating for something that wasn’t really negotiable,” said Patrick Griffin, who served as President

Bill Clinton’s legislative affairs director during the 1995 government shutdown. The start of the government shutdown coincided with the start of sign-ups for the “Obamacare” law’s health insurance exchanges – a rollout that was marred by widespread problems. In an ironic twist, the Republican insistence on shutting down the government in order to make changes to the law wound up overshadowing its glitches and a glaring embarrassment for the president. The result of the miscalculations: a wave of public opinion polls showing that the Republicans took the biggest hit as the budget war dragged on. A Washington PostABC News survey released Monday found 74 per cent disapproved of the way the Republicans in Congress were handling negotiations over the federal budget, up 11 points since just before the shutdown began. Views on how Obama and congressional Democrats handled the budget battle tilted negative but did not change significantly over the course of the shutdown. Despite their dour approval ratings, Republicans may again try to test whether Obama is willing to hold his hard line in the new year. But Obama – long a believer in the power of public opinion – is banking that the anger Americans aimed at Republicans in recent weeks will persuade them to shift course. “The Republicans recognize this was not a good strategy and seeing the horrible reaction from the American people, I’m pretty sure they’re not going to run this play again,” the president said.

China’s major cities have some of the world’s worst smog. The government was long indifferent to the environment as it pursued economic development, but has begun launching

some anti-pollution initiatives after mounting public frustration. Last month, China’s cabinet released an action plan that aims to make a small reduction in the country’s heavy reliance on coal to below 65 per cent of total energy usage by 2017. According to Chinese government statistics, coal consumption accounted for 68.4 per cent of total energy use in 2011.

Mark Bozzuti-Jones, who arranged for Death Cafes to be held at Manhattan’s famous Trinity Church, said the discussion should be open to all views, regardless of whether they conform to religious teachings. “I suspect every person probably has a different understanding of death, the afterlife, no afterlife,” Bozzuti-Jones said. “The different views may provide some form of healing.” Kushner said he doesn’t need any firm answers to benefit from Death Cafes. “I like the idea that we live with this great mystery,” he said. “Wouldn’t life be boring without it?”

Her manager, Barry Orms, said Monday that Austin, as an asthma sufferer, would have been “affected by the amount of pollution.” He said that it wasn’t their goal to place blame, and that “Patti has expressed our belief that the Chinese government can be a

leader in this very important issue.” On the morning ahead of her concert Friday, Beijing’s air was visibly polluted, with the city’s environmental monitoring centre warning children, the elderly and those with respiratory illnesses to reduce outdoor activity. China’s major cities have some of the world’s worst smog. The government was long indifferent to the environment as it pursued economic development, but has begun launching

some anti-pollution initiatives after mounting public frustration. Last month, China’s cabinet released an action plan that aims to make a small reduction in the country’s heavy reliance on coal to below 65 per cent of total energy usage by 2017. According to Chinese government statistics, coal consumption accounted for 68.4 per cent of total energy use in 2011.

THE

ARTS

A musical trip through the spin cycle Jacqueline Ronson News Reporter

T

his week at the Yukon Arts Centre, evalyn parry will present Spin, a show about bicycles for people who live outside of the box. It’s a hybrid show that incorporates elements of song, music, spoken word, theatrical storytelling and visual multimedia. parry will be accompanied by a percussionist playing a vintage bicycle, the sounds amplified through contact microphones. The show traces the rise of the bicycle through the late 19th century, and how that cultural moment tied into the suffragette movement, changes in female fashion and women’s emancipation in general. But it is also a contemporary story about consumption and mass production. One of the central stories is that of Annie Londonderry, who in 1895 became the first woman to cycle around the world. The journey was “quite an adventure story, and a very interesting, complex story as well,” said parry. Londonderry was the master of another sort of spin as well, said parry. The cyclist financed the trip around the world by selling advertising space on her bike and clothes, she said. It was one of the first example of women and sports endorsement, said parry. parry connects to Londonderry’s story as an avid cyclist and an advocate for cycling as urban transportation, she said. But she also connects to it as an artist, said parry. “She’s also pedalling a similar path that any independent artist is today. That was my way in, connecting this complicated relationship that you have with selfpromotion and having to use your ingenuity to figure out how to connect with media and make a story about what it is that you’re doing. “She was a master of that. So not only did she pull off this incredible physical feat, but she was able to really spin a great story to the media and engineer fame for herself.” parry didn’t set out to retell the story of one woman’s journey around the world on a bicycle. Initially, the show was intended to be about parry’s own relationship to cycling. But as she got deeper into the research, the connection between the rise of the bicycle and early feminist movements drew her in. And there was another theme that emerged, said parry. “The third thing in my mind was this idea of spin and how things get bought and sold and spun to us, especially as women.” All three are exemplified by the story of Londonderry’s adventure. “I couldn’t believe that all my themes got combined into one story

Artist evalyn parry fuses spoken word, music and theatre in her one-woman show, Spin, at the Yukon Arts Centre Thursday and Friday. from 120 years ago. It was like a gold mine, discovering her story.” But Londonderry’s story is only one of the threads that will be used to help parry spin her own story of the bicycle’s place in our world. She describes the different pieces of the performance as “spokes that add to something greater than the sum of their parts.”

parry is no stranger to the Yukon. She has been up several times for different creative projects over the years. What keeps her coming back is meeting the interesting, creative people who live here, she said. “I feel in the North that I connect a lot to other people who, for one reason or another, live out-

side the box in some way, and are interested in alternatives. I think something about the weather and being in a place of extremes must attract singular kind of people.” And that, really, is what Spin is all about. “I think that the themes actually transcend the bicycle. There’s human themes about freedom and

about autonomy and following your passion and living outside of the expectations of society.” parry will perform Spin Thursday and Friday at 8 p.m. at the Yukon Arts Centre. Tickets are available at www.yukontickets.com. Contact Jacqueline Ronson at jronson@yukon-news.com

To decline a drink, whether because it is alcoholic, sugarladen or merely repulsive, and whether the reason is religious, medical or preference, a guest need only say, “No, thank you.” If your guest volunteered more information in a misguided but well-meant desire to explain his behavior, he has now done so and no additional action is necessary. If his intent was to criticize your behavior, then no good can come of further probing. A guest who expects you to put him at ease by scooping up alreadyserved drinks from other guests is asking too much.

Ram girls, Warrior boys remain undefeated Tom Patrick News Reporter

T

he senior volleyball season is shaping up very differently for teams from two Whitehorse high schools. The Porter Creek Rams senior girls are undefeated while the senior boys are still looking for their first win in Super Volley. The F.H. Collins Warriors senior boys are undefeated while the senior girls are winless in the Whitehorse league. The Vanier Catholic Secondary Crusaders are somewhere in the middle. “Things are good. We’ll just keep on working, keep on doing what we’re doing, and hopefully it works out in our favour,” said Rams senior girls coach Amy Palamar. Porter Creek’s senior girls moved to a 3-0 Super Volley record with consecutive wins at home last Wed-

nesday and Thursday. The Rams held on for a five-set win over the Vanier Crusaders after dropping a two-set lead on Thursday. The defending Yukon champs squeaked out the win 25-22, 25-11, 21-25, 20-25, 15-13. The Crusaders (1-2) have been dealing with slow starts and lags in energy in middle sets so far this season. “We’re working on it, we’re getting better, we’re gaining our momentum, we’re just having slow starts that we’re hoping to improve on,” said Crusaders co-captain Sydney Young. “We just need to get our focus in faster, not let it get to the second set before we start to get going. We need to get our momentum up and keep happy and not let anything get us down.” The Rams took the hard-fought win on a kill from right-side Maddi Jarvis. Jarvis was named her team’s Player of the Game following the

Rams’ four-set win over the Warriors on Wednesday. Middle Teah Dickson was the Rams’ Player of the Game on Thursday. “They played outstanding and they had good energy,” said Palamar of the two players. Crusaders setter Chanel Newell was named her team’s Player of the Games on Thursday. “We were really impressed with her levelheadedness because she’s just getting used to the setter role,” said Crusaders coach Roz Tait. “She did well at being in control and was a good leader for the team.” The Warriors (0-2) will be looking to the Dawson City Invitational Volleyball Tournament this week for their first win. “We did really well with serving; we only missed five serves in those sets,” said Warriors assistant coach Jackie Taylor of Wednesday’s game. “We passed really well, our sets were good, so we just need to work on kill

ing the ball and finishing our points.”

Crusaders cruise over short-benched Rams Porter Creek’s senior boys didn’t have many options on Thursday. With just six players dressed for the game, there was a lot of exposed pine on the Rams’ bench. “We only had six players to play that night, so we were a little shortbenched,” said Rams head coach Derick Bilodeau. “One of our starters couldn’t play, so we had to move everyone around to different positions to try and accommodate that.” The visiting Vanier Crusaders made quick work of the Rams with a 25-23, 25-13, 25-20 straight-set win on Thursday. The Rams (0-3) lost in five sets to the undefeated Warriors (2-0) the previous night. “We have to play more consistent when it comes to the simple things in the game – not making mistakes on our side, being more consistent on

our serving, more consistent with our attacks, getting balls on the court and not making mistakes ourselves,” said Bilodeau. Rams power Kyle Lowes was named his team’s Player of the Game on Wednesday against the Warriors and teammate Zach Haynen got the nod on Thursday. “He set for us on the Thursday night, which he doesn’t normally do, and he did a pretty good job,” said Bilodeau. Steven Wolfarth, captain of the defending Yukon champ Crusaders (2-1), was named his team’s Player of the Game for his work as middle on Thursday. “It was a good game and PC did their best,” said Wolfarth. “PC was down one player, but they still did a really good job. “We worked well, we did a lot of good passing. We had troubles with our serving, but we brought that up and did really good serves.” Contact Tom Patrick at tomp@yukon-news.com

hitehorse speedskater Troy Henry didn’t land a spot at the World Cup or set any personal best times, but he is nonetheless pleased with her performance at the World Cup Long Track Trials over the weekend at Calgary’s Olympic Oval. The 24-year-old went headto-head with the fastest longdistance skaters in the country and broke into the top-10 in the 10,000-metre at the event used to select Canada’s team for the World Cup next month. “I didn’t qualify for the World Cup, but I did place pretty well,” said Henry. “These races are about as thick as they get in Canada for the long-distance stuff. Unless it becomes an international competition, for example the North American (championships) or a World Cup or something like that, this is the toughest of the Canadian guys that come to this event.” Henry skated to seventh out of 13 skaters, with a time of 14:11.59, in the 10,000-metre on Sunday. He also placed 11th out

of 16 top skaters in the 5,000-metre, clocking a time of 6:45.95 on Thursday to start the competition. “This is including the national team skaters,” said Henry. “The winning time was 6:28, so I wasn’t too far off. “My personal best is 6:42 but air pressure wasn’t quite the same as when I set that. The air pressure has quite a bearing on the times. The higher the air pressure, the more resistance there is.” Henry, who is a member of the Whitehorse Rapids Speed Skating Club and the Olympic Oval Program in Calgary, also competed in two events at the Olympic Oval Invitational that was held concurrently to the World Cup trials. Henry sped to fourth out of 41 skaters in the 1,500-metre, logging a time of 1:51.76, just 0.23 from the podium. He also placed 11th out of 35 skaters in the 500-metre the previous day on Friday. “The results that I got in the invitational show I should probably have been in the (World Cup) trials for the 1,500, but I just didn’t have enough points from last year,” said Henry. Henry qualified for the

World Cup trials through the accumulation of points from last season. He placed 12th in the 5,000-metre at the North American Speed Skating Championships in Salt Lake City, Utah, last March. He finished the Canada Cup series with seventh in the 10,000-metre and 20th in the 5,000-metre in Calgary. Last season was Henry’s first full season competing in long-track since making the jump from short-track. Henry won over a dozen medals in short-track in four Arctic Winter Games appearances between 2002 and 2008. He has also represented the Yukon at three Canada Games, including two summer Games in cycling. On the bike Henry won the 2011 Tour of Anchorage and the 2012 Tour of Juneau. “The results I got at national team trials may not seem very high rankings, but they are very good results for me and I’m quite pleased with them,” said Henry of the trials. “That’s against the best guys in Canada.” Contact Tom Patrick at tomp@yukon-news.com

ANNIE'S

COMICS

MAILBOX

ADAM

Dear Annie: I am 29 years old, own my home and support myself. I am in a serious relationship with a wonderful man who is African-American. All of my life, my family has been ruled by my maternal grandmother. My “nana” doesn’t approve of this relationship because my boyfriend is black and I am white, and this has caused much heartache for me. My mother says I am not allowed to bring my boyfriend to family functions, because “it will kill my grandmother.” She also says I am selfish to continue this relationship despite the fact that my parents and nana don’t approve. Annie, I’m planning to marry this man. I don’t feel that I should have to give up my happiness because my family cannot accept the man I have chosen to spend my life with. How do I convince my parents that I’m entitled to happiness regardless of what they think? I am in so much pain because it seems that my parents care more about my nana’s feelings than their daughter’s future. — Devastated Dear Devastated: If this is the man you are going to marry, then do it and stop worrying about your family’s approval. You should pay attention to them if your choices are poor — if you pick abusers or addicts, for example. But if your guy is good to you and you will take care of each other throughout life’s ups and downs, you do not need to please anyone else. While it would be sad if your family cannot eventually learn to accept this, please have the courage of your convictions. Dear Annie: I disagree with your response to “Rejected,” whose wife spends her time online or with her widowed mother instead of in the bedroom. If this had been a woman writing about her husband, your first reaction would have been to suggest an affair. I think this explains everything. My ex used to do the same thing when she “visited her aunt.” I found out when I saw an envelope addressed to a P.O. Box and read about her sexual exploits. She is probably staying with him so she won’t have to give him money in a divorce. — Been There and Had It Done to Me Dear Been: You could be right. However, he said they have been married for 34 years. For many women, sex after menopause becomes a miserable chore or even a painful experience. We wouldn’t rule out an affair, but we think it’s more likely she’s simply avoiding intimacy.

Solution to Tuesday’s puzzle

No digit can be repeated in a solution, so a 4 can only produce 1 and 3, never 2 and 2. Solution published tomorrow. © 2013 The Mepham Group. Distributed by Tribune Content Agency. All rights reserved.

11/6/13

To solve Kakuro, you must enter a number between 1 and 9 in the empty squares. The clues are the numbers in the white circles that give the sum of the solution numbers: above the line are across clues and below the line are down clues. Thus, a clue of 3 will produce a solution of 2 and 1 and a 5 will produce 4 and 1, or 2 and 3, but, of course, which squares they go in will depend on the solution of a clue in the other direction.

Kids Korner Younger kids can enjoy Uncle Art’s Funland, while older ones can test their knowledge with Shortcuts.

This edition of Shortcuts is sponsored by Plank-ton.

This cartoon should surrender. lackbeard was one of the most well-known and feared pirates of his time, but very little is known about his life before he became a pirate. One of the largest mysteries is his real name. Most historians refer to him as Edward Teach or Edward Thatch, but Blackbeard was also known by many other last names, including Tash, Drummond and Thache.

Part of Blackbeard’s intimidating presence was that he was 183 cm (6 ft. 4 in.) tall and towered over most of the men that lived during his time. What is a Blackbeard’s least favorite color? Maroon.

While Blackbeard was known to be a fierce pirate, there is no evidence that he actually murdered anybody.

Blackbeard was a ferocious fighter. In his final battle, he received 20 sword wounds and was shot five times before he finally fell. Can you help this research ship find the nervous wreck?

In 1717, Blackbeard, working under Capt. Benjamin Hornigold, captured a large French slave ship named “La Concorde.” Blackbeard renamed the ship “Queen Anne’s Revenge” and made it his flagship. In 1996, researchers discovered the wreck of the Queen Anne’s Revenge. The Queen Anne’s Revenge was armed with nearly 40 guns.

Blackbeard’s fierce reputation was so well known that ships and coastal towns would often surrender upon seeing his ship.

Why do pirates want to make people walk on me?

How much does Blackbeard pay for corn? About a buck an ear.

Can you find the hidden words? Search carefully because some words are backward or diagonal. I A M T H E W A L R U S S BLACKBEARD REVENGE SHIP S H O U T G D E N I G H N EDWARD TOWN A W E A K N S W M N T E E THATCH ANNE N P R F O E H P A I E L E BATTLE TIME N I U L A V I A H R T O U PIRATE FLAG P S I T E E P C T T D O Q QUEEN FUSE E T A G E R T R A I N S I TEACH BOB T O A D R A E B K C A L B PISTOL B L U S H O C K N O W O W HAT LIT F O O T O O T H U B B L E

In 1718, Blackbeard and his ships blockaded the port of Charleston, South Carolina, for nearly a week. Blackbeard left after receiving a chest of medicine as ransom for hostages he had taken.

Blackbeard was named after his long, thick beard that he braided with ribbons. He is also said to have put lit cannon fuses under his hat to make himself seem even more terrifying during battle.

Blackbeard’s flag showed a bleeding heart and a devilish skeleton holding an hourglass and a spear. The hourglass showed his potential victims that time was running out and that they should surrender immediately.

For more information on Blackbeard, check out these books: “Pirates!” by Christopher Maynard (DK Children) or “Pirates, Privateers, and Rebel Raiders of the Carolina Coast” by Lindley Butler (University of North Carolina Press).

Why couldn't the 13-year-old see the pirate movie? It was rated arrrrr.

Distributed by Universal Uclick for UFS, Inc.

The flintlock pistol was used by many pirates. It could fire only one shot and took a long time to reload, so pirates usually carried several pistols during a raid. Blackbeard carried six pistols that he wore across his chest.

Where does Blackbeard go to dance? A cannon-ball.
