Crafting good day for mom

The family and friends of a missing Edmonton-based soldier continued their search in the river valley yesterday evening as the official search was called off on Friday. The last sighting of 25-year-old Master Cpl. Richard Curnow was at the start of a 10-kilometre run with other members of the military in the Hawrelak Park area Thursday morning. “Someone had passed him and someone else should have passed him ... and then he wasn’t there,� sister-in-law Victoria MacKenzie said. The soldier’s wife, Justine MacKenzie-Curnow, said she doesn’t believe the stress of his two tours in Afghanistan as a bombdisposal expert has anything to do with his disappearance. His sister-in-law also said that he’s been living on the south side for a while and is familiar with the area. “From what I’ve heard, they’ve

old daughter together. Posters have been put up and distributed throughout the area. Curnow’s disappearance is not being considered suspicious, according to police. NANCY GORDY

SHELLEY WILLIAMSON/METRO

Four CN train cars go off rails CN officials are investigating a train derailment yesterday morning. Four cars on a freight train jumped the tracks near the Clover Bar Yard in east Edmonton around 11 a.m. According to Lindsay Fedchyshyn, a spokesperson for CN, early indications are the train was not carrying dangerous commodities, confirming only that it was general merchandise in the cars. No one was hurt in the incident, and the company wasn’t sure when it would be cleared up. METRO

Senior assaulted in break-in Police are looking for a suspect after an elderly woman was assaulted during a break-in at the Edmonton Chinese Seniors Lodge. At about 3:45 a.m. yesterday, officers responded to a break-in at a groundfloor suite at 95 Street and 102A Avenue. Police say the 80-yearold resident is currently being treated in hospital. The suspect, who fled, is described as an adult male, about six feet tall with long dark hair and dark clothing. Anyone with information should call the police at 780-423-4567. METRO

Brownfield sites like this one on Whyte Avenue are being considered for interim use as parks, vendors location or public art spaces, thanks to a report being discussed today at city hall.

City mulls plans for brownfields

Task force hoping to ‘turn community blights into neighbourhood assets,’ says report Revenue, grants being touted as motivators for site owners to agree to alternate uses SHELLEY WILLIAMSON

@METRONEWS.CA

As the city committee charged with tackling the issue of erstwhile gas stations meets today, it is with hopes of finally gaining ground in the battle of the brownfields. “Together I think we have the best chance in years to make something happen,” said Coun. Tony Caterina, one of five members on the contaminated

gas stations task force. The city council committee will mull interim uses for brownfields awaiting remediation, from public art and solar panels, to food courts, park space and vendor kiosks. The meeting coincides with rumblings the province will also create a task force, said Caterina, calling it “a good sign that they’re taking it seriously.” The city task force will dig into reports offering options to fuel the sale or

remediation of brownfields with taxes, and making remediation insurance mandatory for new gas stations. That’s good news for business owners like Chris Hansen, whose Burlington Tobacconist on Whyte has overlooked the onetime Imperial Oil station at 105 Street. Hansen would like to see parking or green space there but worries the latter will draw late-night loitering, he said.

Brownfield facts Some 50 brownfield sites pepper the city, including a handful in Beverly, on 118 Avenue, and one on Whyte Avenue.

Most brownfield sites are located in high-traffic, walkable areas, which give the potential to generate revenue for landowners, according to a city report being considered today.

HEATHER MCINTYRE/METRO

High-idle areas may be targeted by new bylaw Seven Alberta municipalities have some sort of anti-idling bylaw Edmonton looking at banning idling near ‘high vulnerability populations’: Report

HEATHER MCINTYRE

@METRONEWS.CA

Despite the benefits, enforcing an anti-idling bylaw in certain areas may prove to be difficult, says one city councillor. Tomorrow, a council committee will hear options on curbing idling in areas where there is a “concentration of high vulnerability populations,” such as schools, hospitals and seniors’ centres, says a new report. “Part of the problem is that, on private property, I don’t know how much jurisdiction we would

have,” said Coun. Tony Caterina. One example of such a bylaw is North Bay, Ont., where there is no idling within 100 metres of school property or municipal buildings. The information was requested after councillors were told in January that a public-awareness campaign put in place instead of a city-wide antiidling bylaw in 2009 did not reduce idling. Should the city finally choose to move forward with a bylaw, the enforcement would rely on citizens to provide evidence. “A big red flag is that

Idling in front of schools may cost you if the city chooses to bring forth a geographically focused idling bylaw.

it’s complaint-driven,” said Caterina. “Somebody would have to phone in after standing there for three and a half minutes.”

He thinks the province should be involved instead of municipalities creating different bylaws one at a time.

U.S. wants to speak to wives of bin Laden

Search for B.C. man continues

Missing man’s wife found after surviving seven weeks in wilderness She relied on snow and a small amount of trail mix, losing 30 pounds

Sheriff’s deputies searched for the husband of a Penticton, B.C., woman who survived for seven weeks after they became stranded in remote mountains in Nevada, holding out hope that he could still be alive. Rita Chretien, 56, told investigators the last she saw of Albert Chretien, 59, was on March 22, when he set off for help on foot with a GPS unit three days after their van got stuck in mud on a national forest

Not a single kid or teacher showed up when the eight-room school in Salavat, Afghanistan, opened about a month ago. “The insurgents told us, ‘Don’t go to the school.

Afghan. Education

The United States wants access to three widows of Osama bin Laden being held by Pakistani authorities to help answer questions about whether any officials knew the al-Qaida chief was living in the country, a U.S. official said. Information from the three women left behind in the house after American commandos killed bin Laden could also reveal the day-to-day life of bin Laden, what he has done since the invasion of Afghanistan in 2001 and the workings of al-Qaida. Several children were taken into custody, some or all of them believed to be bin Laden’s.

The Pakistani government has strongly denied it knew of bin Laden’s whereabouts, but Western governments have long regarded Islamabad with suspicion. Its armed forces have historical links with Islamist militants, whom they used as proxies in Afghanistan and India. U.S. commandos killed bin Laden and up to four others, including one of his sons, at the compound on April 29. They took the body of bin Laden and quickly buried it at sea. Pakistani officials have given little information about the identities of the women and children. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

New MP Video of captive T.O. shocked by man issued victory

Canadian Cpl. Gabriel Ferland teases children on their way to school in the town of Salavat, Afghanistan, yesterday. “This is the best thing that happened to me in Afghanistan in 18 months — children going to school,” Ferland says. COLIN PERKEL/THE CANADIAN PRESS

The federal government is saying little about a video of a Toronto man captured by the Taliban in October while in Afghanistan. The video of Colin Rutherford, 26, was released yesterday. In an accompanying email, the Taliban threatened to put Rutherford on trial for espionage if Canada doesn’t meet its demands. A Taliban spokesman said the Canadian government was aware of the demands.

The elusive, newly elected New Democrat who made headlines for going to Las Vegas during the election campaign has finally given an interview. Ruth Ellen Brosseau told a Quebec newspaper that her victory came as a shock but that she’s excited about the opportunity. Brosseau plans to quit her Ottawa bartending job. The single mother speaks little French but says she is trying to improve.

Fire workers fight a blaze at a church surrounded by angry Muslims in the Imbaba neighbourhood in Cairo late Saturday. Christians and Muslims fought in the streets after news spread that a Christian woman who married a Muslim had been abducted and was being held against her will.

Religious riots in Egypt turn deadly Residents say police are doing nothing to intervene Relations between Egypt’s Muslims and Christians degenerated to a new low yesterday after riots overnight left 12 people dead and a church burned. The attack on the church was the latest sign of assertiveness by an extreme, ultraconservative

movement of Muslims, known as Salafis, whose hostility toward Coptic Christians recently has met with little interference from the country’s military rulers. The violence erupted late Saturday with Muslims and Christians pelt-

ing each other with stones in another part of Cairo. The bloodshed began after news spread that a Christian woman who married a Muslim had been abducted and was being kept in a church against her will. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Lost jobs regained: StatsCan Canada’s employment recovery is almost complete after a strong April added 58,300 new jobs, enough to finally lift full-time work back to pre-recession peaks. In an unexpected twist, almost all the jobs — 54,800 — were created in Ontario, whereas in the rest of the country employment was mostly flat. The overall unemployment rate fell one-tenth of a point to 7.6 per cent, matching the lowest level since the early months of the 2008 recession, when it peaked at 8.7 per cent. The weak spot was that most, 41,100, were part-time jobs. Even so, the addition of 17,200 full-time employees was almost enough to match economists’ expectations for all workers, though total hours remained slightly under the pre-recession peak.

About half of the 248 companies that make up the TSX composite index have reported earnings so far this season. A majority, 39 out of 69, beat analysts’ expectations, with 23 missing. “It’s certainly positive, but I find that the big picture is really the overall sentiment,” said Jennifer Dowty, portfolio manager for Manulife Asset Management. “You can have a company that reports reasonable numbers, but if the whole market is in a downdraft and no one wants to step in and buy, the upside potential may be capped.” THE CANADIAN PRESS

As a kid, I felt pretty hard done by. Living in a small house with eight other people and sharing a room with TERENCE HARDING two older brothers was no METRO EDMONTON fun at all. Meals were basic, to say the least. Christmas and birthdays were pretty much non-events when it came to presents, and I rarely got to wear clothes that one of my brothers hadn’t worn before me. I had occasion to think about my childhood the other day when I attended a breakfast meeting for the Youth Emergency Shelter Society (YESS). In listening to the speakers and their stories, it became apparent that my childhood was pretty good after all. My father did not beat my mother or drink away his paycheque. I never came home to find my mother passed out from a drug overdose. No one sexually molested me. There was always food on the table and a roof over my head, and I never had to the walk the streets at night “More than 500 looking for a place to sleep because no one cared about young men and women between me.Many clients of YESS are the ages of 15 not so lucky.

If you want to know more about its services, I encourage you to visit its website. Now that the weather is getting warmer, it is easy to forget about those with no home to go to. But the next time you pass a garbage can on the street, think about the fact that the garbage is protected from the elements better than the young people YESS serves.

China’s production of green technologies has grown by a remarkable 77 per cent per year, according to the report, which was commissioned by the World Wildlife Fund for Nature and which will be unveiled today at an industry conference in Amsterdam. Denmark derives 3.1 per cent of its gross domestic product from renewable energy technology and energy efficiency, or about $9.4 billion US, the report said. China is the largest producer in money terms, earning more than $64 billion, or 1.4 per cent of its gross domestic product.

Seinfeld discovers the world wide web Famous comedian decides it’s time to get online Why now is the perfect time to launch his unique website — and it has nothing to do with flaunting his past fashion choices GETTY IMAGES

Most working comedians know the importance of having a web presence to list upcoming events, promotional material, and hopefully develop a muchneeded fan base. But when you’re a comic on the level of Jerry Seinfeld, do you really need a way to promote yourself ? Well, yes — just in a different way. “I wanted a very restricted concept; I didn’t want to have a site with like mugs t-shirts, concert dates. I find that annoying,” he says about how his new site, jerryseinfeld.com, will be different. “I just couldn’t wait any longer and I finally came up with an idea that I liked.” Instead, the site, which launched on Friday, is a repository of nearly every recorded comedy appearance from Seinfeld — a career that spans 36 years. One of Friday’s introductory clips was from his first time on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson in 1981 — posted 30 years to the day. Seinfeld, who is very

Ex-American Idol judges will reunite for U.S. take on X Factor Paula Abdul is officially going back to work for Simon Cowell, as she recently closed a deal to serve as a judge on Cowell’s American version of X Factor, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Abdul joins fellow judges Cowell, producer L.A. Reid and Cheryl Cole, who served as a judge on the U.K. version of the show. The deal was reportedly signed just in time for Abdul to start work taping the show’s judging rounds.

The Mitsubishi was reportedly broken down in the carpool lane and not moving when the collision occurred. The other driver was taken to a hospital to treat minor neck pain, while Beckham and his 12-yearold son, Brooklyn, were uninjured. METRO

The gender bender Today is Pink Toenail Day for families who promote modern interpretations of gender roles A controversial J. Crew ad inspired the day by celebrating a boy’s love of the colour pink If a girl wants to try her hand at baseball or ice hockey, she’s likely to be praised as plucky. But if a boy likes the colour pink? Well, that’s a toenail of a different colour. Last month, J. Crew unleashed a furor when a promotion depicted its creative director, Jenna Lyons, painting her five-year-old son Beckett’s toenails with pink nail polish. “Lucky for me, I ended up with a boy whose favourite colour is pink,� the caption read. Dr. Keith Ablow, a psy-

chiatrist and regular guest on Fox News, didn’t approve. “It may be fun and games now, Jenna, but at least put some money aside for psychotherapy for the kid,� he wrote on Foxnews.com. “This is a dramatic example of the way that our culture is being encouraged to abandon all trappings of gender identity.� In fact, Lyons and her son had stepped on a cultural land mine.

in the past, but they remain a pervasive part of popular culture and a benchmark for parents. Moreover, the changes in recent decades have been more dramatic for girls than boys.

So Ablow quickly found support. One Million Moms, an offshoot of the conservative American Family Association, urged followers to write protest letters to J. Crew and asserted that “nontraditional activities ... can be destructive and damaging to a child’s identity and self-esteem.� Just as quickly, there was a backlash from people who liked Beckett’s pink toenails.

Add Italian flavour to your life Try this Asian-Italian take on spinach, goat cheese and roasted pepper cannelloni MATTHEW MEAD/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

East and West combine for these cannelloni, which are made by rolling a very Italian-style filling of spinach, cheese, mushrooms and roasted red peppers in Asian-style egg roll wrappers. Ricotta cheese combined with tangy goat cheese gives the filling some bite, but if you prefer you can use all ricotta for milder results. Here we’ve called for jarred marinara sauce as a convenience, but by all means use homemade sauce if you have it. Look for fresh egg roll wrappers in the produce aisle (often near the tofu) of most supermarkets, or purchase them at Asian specialty markets.

Preparation:

Spread 1/2 cup (125 mL) of the marinara sauce in bottom of 13 x 9 inch (3.5 L) baking dish; set aside. In bowl, using a fork, mix together ricotta, goat cheese, parsley, basil and cornstarch until well combined. Season with salt and pepper. Lay an egg roll wrapper on work surface. In a strip along one edge, spoon about 1/4 cup (60 mL) of the cheese mixture. Top with a bit of the spinach, roasted peppers and mushrooms. Roll wrapper into a tube around the fillings, moistening the edge with water and pressing it firmly

Selecting eco-friendly moving companies and what services they offer BEN KNIGHT

LIFE@METRONEWS.CA

Packing everything you own into boxes and moving from one home to another is one of the most chaotic, disruptive times in anybody’s life. If ever there’s a day to forget all about the environment, it’s the day you move. Intriguingly, Canada’s biggest and oldest moving companies don’t agree. Mayflower Canada, United Van Lines and many others now offer helpful, inexpensive green options to help you tread softly on the planet while moving to your new home. “Moving, historically, has not been anything that’s been environmentally friendly,” says Lisa Hulet, vice-president of marketing for Mayflower

“People have too much stuff, and they don’t know what to do with it. We’re just trying to help customers – and ourselves – to live more responsibly, and do our business more responsibly. ” LISA HULET

Canada. “A lot of customers didn’t know there were alternatives.” Mayflower launched its Go Green program late in 2009. Their trucks don’t idle and conserve gas by not speeding. The company also offers a range of useful, ecofriendly services to make the process cleaner. “Before the truck even arrives, the moving consultant would go into the customer’s house and talk about what they need to move, and what stuff they don’t want to move,” Hulet

explains. “We have a partnership that can safely remove all your old electronics in an environmentally friendly manner.” Mayflower has forged an alliance with disposal company 1-800-Got-Junk, for example, and 80 per cent of its pickups are recycled, or distributed to charities. “It’s about educating the consumer — and the movers themselves — to offer more environmental best practices,” Hulet notes. “For the customer, it’s about educating them before the moving truck

even comes to the door.” She adds that moving is the only time people ever have to deal hands-on with all their accumulated possessions at one time. It’s a perfect time for purging – and that’s a great chance to recycle. “One of the saddest things, I think, is that storage is one of the fastestgrowing industries in North America,” she concludes. “People have too much stuff, and they don’t know what to do with it. We’re just trying to help customers – and ourselves – to live more responsibly, and do our business more responsibly. I know that our customers have been really happy about that extra guidance. They’re so happy to learn they don’t actually have to move all their stuff.”

videos posted on YouTube. Khan hasn't stopped - he spends most of his days working on new videos and hopes his growing project will be a disruptive force that shakes up the education system, forces innovation and maybe even gets the price of schooling to decrease. Perhaps even down to zero, or the cost of an Internet connection. “My mindset back when I started was that I would really like to make something that would eventually be a resource on the web

where anyone could learn anything,” Khan explained in a recent interview. “I envisioned it as something for individual learners or self-motivated learners, or maybe homeschoolers, then after a couple summer camps started to use it I thought, 'Wouldn't it be cool if this was like the operating system for a real school?”' He believes the Khan Academy already offers a “pretty comprehensive” curriculum for math and science. “You could even

get through the first few years of college with Khan Academy,” he says. Most videos run about 10 minutes and include Khan's folksy lecturing and some simple illustrations. Topics as basic as addition and subtraction are covered, while there are about 145 videos to learn all about physics. There's a small section on history - mostly about U.S. history and the French Revolution - and videos about investing and the business world, a nod to Khan's former career working for a hedge fund company. Khan notes that Canada is a big market for the site, with more Canadians watching videos on a per capita basis than Americans. He envisions that within five years the Khan Academy or other similar resources could give a child “a fairly good education,” close to what they'd get in a traditional school, even at the university level. For that to truly happen, he'd like to see an accreditation process developed that would let kids take advantage of free educational resources online and get real credit for that knowledge.

With summer vacation visible and on the horizon, it can be tough for teens to maintain focus on their studies during the home stretch. “It’s a huge problem this time of year,” says Judy Arnall, a speaker and bestselling author from Calgary. “The stretch between spring break or the Easter holidays and the end of June is probably the hardest one because the weather is getting nicer and kids want to be outside more.” For parents looking to help their kids break out of this funk, Arnall says parents must show empathy and an understanding of what their kids are going through. “The parent’s role is to

show empathy and to facilitate problem solving with their teens,” she says. This requires parents to be flexible and accommodating with what their teens feel they need to do to succeed. Arnall also recommends parents map out a plan with their kids and break it down into small chunks so that what lies ahead doesn’t seem so daunting. Even if there are disappointing academic results, parents must continue to be encouraging. “It’s important for parents to be very positive, to really appreciate what the students have done right,” says Mark Federman, an education speaker from Toronto. He says it’s common for parents to focus solely on the results of a test or paper and say things like

work harder or study harder. He cautions that this is not the right approach. “The student perceives this as punishment, even though the parent may intend it as encouragement,” says Federman. This is why he encourages parents to highlight the positives because it will help boost their teen’s selfesteem. One other possible way of motivating them is through offering incentives, but this isn’t a great idea. Arnall says it sets up an expectation and a sense of entitlement Federman isn’t a fan either. “My philosophy is extrinsic motivators only work to a very limited degree because with carrots and sticks, you inevitably need bigger sticks and sweeter carrots,” he says.

MONDAY, MAY 9, 2011

Nursing week “Canada’s registered nurses are over a quarter of a million strong,” says Judith Shamian, president of the Canadian Nurses Association. “They are involved in every aspect of our health system — research, patient advocacy, health policy and administration, public health, prevention and management of chronic disease, rehabilitation and recovery and, of course, the special kind of direct clinical care for which we are known best.” National Nursing Week is held the second week of May to celebrate Canadian nurses and their dedication to patient care and the health-care system. The purpose is to remind everyone of the many ways nurses contribute to the well-being of Canadians. May 12, which is Florence Nightingale’s birthday, was designated International Nurses Day in 1971.

This organization CAREs for nurses Agency helps foreign-trained nurses qualify to work in Ontario All that Lia Musetti wanted was to be a Registered Nurse in Ontario. But she was convinced it would never, ever happen. The 49-year-old RN from Sao Paulo, Brazil immigrated to Toronto in 1996 and, on at least three occasions, ordered a package from the College of Nurses of Ontario about how to upgrade her education. Every time, she would look at the pile of papers and shake her head dismally. “It seemed hard, almost impossible.” Then in 2004, Musetti decided she had to get back into nursing and signed up for a two-year Registered Practical Nursing program at George Brown College. But after two years of practising, she realized her heart wasn’t in it — she wanted to be an RN. She mustered the courage and finally started the process

1,000 CARE has helped more than 1,000 internationally educated nurses, representing more than 140 countries. Zubeida Ramji, executive director of the organization, says many are from Philippines, India, China and Iran. to get her license in Ontario. It wasn’t easy: the College of Nurses wanted her to take 17 credits. Musetti was on the verge of giving up on her dream forever when she heard about the Creating Access to Regulated Employment, better known by its acronym CARE. In the end, she took three credits and was

helped with exam preparation. Within months, she had cleared all her exams and now works for St. Elizabeth Healthcare as a community nurse. “I love it and I couldn’t have done it without CARE,” she says. Almost 10 per cent of the province’s registered nurses and practical nurses received their initial training outside Canada. CARE was launched in 2001 to help them get accredited to work here. Initially funded through a grant from the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities, it now receives money from Citizenship and Immigration Canada. “CARE provides support to international nurses who immigrate to Ontario and want to pursue the profession,” explains Zubeida Ramji, executive director of

Just under 10 per cent of Ontario nurses trained outside the country the organization. Most have a lot of experience but they have to go through a regulatory process and meet requirements of the College of Nurses. “CARE helps navigate the system so that these internationally educated nurses have greater chances of becoming successful in a reasonable period of time,” says Ramji. The amount of time it takes the nurses to get licensed in Ontario depends on their nursing education and experience. “CARE doesn’t have any control over that,” says Ramji. The college does the assessment and tells them what they need to do. Some complete the process in as few as four months, but most take about 18 to 20 months.

Detroit nets three goals in the third period to beat the San Jose Sharks Tomas Holmstrom broke a tie with 6:08 remaining, and the Detroit Red Wings had three third-period goals to avoid elimination with a 4-3 victory over the San Jose Sharks yesterday. Danny Cleary and Jonathan Ericsson also scored in the final period to send the series back to Detroit for Game 6 tomorrow night. After winning the first three games, San Jose is clinging to a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven series. Logan Couture, Joe Pavelski and Devin Se-

toguchi scored to help the Sharks take a 3-1 lead early in the third period. Then

the Red Wings scored two quick goals before Holmstrom redirected the winner past Antti Niemi. Niklas Kronwall also scored, and Jimmy Howard made 39 saves for Detroit. The Red Wings took a huge step toward adding to their already storied history. Only three NHL teams have overcome 3-0 deficits to win a best-of-seven series. The 2010 Philadelphia Flyers, 1942 Toronto Maple Leafs and 1975 New York Is-

landers are the only teams to win a series after losing the first three games. With Chicago winning three straight to force a Game 7 against Vancouver in the opening round, there’s plenty of recent precedent that Detroit can push San Jose to the brink. The Red Wings already have overcome a repeat of last season, when they went down 3-0 to the Sharks — just like this year — before being eliminated in Game 5 at San Jose. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

So long, Phil. So long, chances for another Lakers three-peat. Hello, Western Conference finals for Dirk Nowitzki and the Dallas Mavericks. Jason Terry tied an NBA post-season record with nine three-pointers and the Mavericks matched a league playoff mark with

20 threes on their way to a 122-86 victory over the Lakers yesterday and a sweep of their second-round series against the most successful coach in NBA history and the two-time defending champions. Phil Jackson left the court with a tight smile, accepting hugs and handshakes from Dallas coach Rick Carlisle, Jason Kidd

and Mark Cuban. It was the first time he’d been swept in his 21 post-seasons on the sideline. It hadn’t happened to Bryant and the Lakers since 1999, the year before the Zen Master arrived in L.A. While Jackson would have preferred going out with a 12th title, this exit does nothing to tarnish his legacy. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Bombers select top linebacker in CFL draft The Winnipeg Blue Bombers selected St. Francis Xavier linebacker Henoc Muamba first overall in the CFL Canadian college draft yesterday. The six-foot, 230-pound Muamba was Canadian university football’s top defensive player last season. But the Mississauga, Ont., native is expected to contribute immediately on Winnipeg’s special teams as he learns the nuances of the Bombers defence. Winnipeg secured the first overall selection for the first time since 1975 after posting a leagueworst 4-14 record last year. The move wasn’t a surprise as Muamba was in Winnipeg yesterday so the CFL club could unveil its first overall pick in the Manitoba capital. “I’m excited,” Muamba told TSN. “I’m ready to go back to work and make an impact on the team.” The Edmonton Eskimos followed by taking Rice offensive lineman Scott Mitchell at No. 2. The six-foot-five, 295pound Mitchell, a Montreal native who grew up in Ottawa, was the topranked draft prospect by the CFL’s Scouting Bureau and had been mentioned as a first-overall candidate. The Calgary Stampeders moved up to No. 3 in a trade with the B.C. Lions and selected Calgary Dinos receiver Anthony Parker. The six-foot-two, 215pound Parker struggled mightily in Calgary’s 29-2 Vanier Cup loss to Laval but bounced back with a stellar showing at the CFL’s evaluation camp. Calgary head coach and GM John Hufnagel said Parker has been on his radar screen for some time. “He has been,” Hufnagel said. “There are a lot of quality receivers in the draft and we wanted to make sure we came out of the first round with a receiver. “We’re glad Anthony was available.” THE CANADIAN PRESS
