Three men shot in Kensington Market


Six cracks of gunfire woke Jon McCurley from his bed early yesterday morning. From his window above La Rosa’s Bakery in Kensington Market, he saw three men stumble out of the alley next to him, bleeding and pleading for help. One was shot in the arm, another in the leg. The third, struck in the stomach, crawled along the pavement. “It seemed like his legs weren’t working,” McCurley said.

They left splatters of red behind them — along the wall, across a row of garbage bins — to the end of the alley, where a white door was splashed with a long streak of blood. It was 4:30 a.m. Police say the victims attended an after-hours club in the basement of 213 Augusta Ave., when an argument spilled into the alley. The patrons of the club, called the Rainbow Palace, were questioned by police in two TTC buses. All three victims are ex-

pected to recover from their injuries. Police are searching for three suspects, and asking for more witnesses to come forward. Derek Benjamin, who promoted the event, said it was a monthly gathering for his nearby Caribbean culture shop, Genesis One. They shared vegan food and music, he said — not violence. No alcohol was sold at the event but some people brought their own, Benjamin said. He said the shooting in the alley had

Filion won’t stop after resigning Coun. John Filion recently resigned from the government management committee, angry that Mayor Rob Ford’s office ignored his requests to return to the planning and transportation committee that

he chaired when David Miller was mayor. Filion (Ward 23 Willowdale) said he will continue participating in planning committee meetings as a visiting councillor, without a vote, but he is also

Mayor Rob Ford’s tight but apparently slipping grip on the city agenda faces a new challenge — councillors launching their own committees and task forces. Mike Layton, an ardent cyclist, is forming an ad hoc body to replace the cycling advisory committee, which is among the city’s 20 citizen groups Ford is trying to scrap. The committees are in limbo but council recently voted to have Ford take another look at several, and report back by July. It was one of a handful of recent votes the mayor has lost. Layton (Ward 19, Trinity-Spadina) got the idea from his father, federal NDP Leader Jack Layton, who countered frustration at the loss of the cycling committee by asking: “Why don’t you just start your own?” Layton plans to be the committee’s voice at council, asking questions of city staff and passing on input on the plan for separated downtown bike lanes to be unveiled by public works

After he died eight years ago, his daughter Deirdre Stuart took over and last year tried to sell the lot online — asking price $1 million.

Sudan forces commit war crimes: Group


Evidence to be sent to UN Security Council President Omar al-Bashir already wanted for Darfur war crimes An advocacy group said yesterday that new satellite images provide evidence that northern Sudanese troops have committed war crimes, including ethnic cleansing, in the contested border town of Abyei where the forces took over more than a week ago. The Satellite Sentinel Project said in a statement that satellite images by DigitalGlobe show that the Sudanese army burned about one-third of all civilian buildings in the northsouth border town, used disproportionate force and indiscriminately targeted civilians. “The totality of evidence from satellites and ground sources points to statesponsored ethnic cleansing of much of the contested

Minister resigns amid scandal PIERRE VERDY/GETTY IMAGES

A French government minister who was accused of sexual assault resigned yesterday, the prime minister’s office announced. Junior civil service minister George Tron became the subject of a preliminary investigation into charges of rape and sexual assault after two women alleged that he had attacked them be-

tween 2007 and 2010. Tron, 53, is a member of President Nicolas Sarkozy’s conservative UMP party. A statement from Prime Minister François Fillon’s office noted Tron has denied the allegations and praised him for acting in the “general interest.”

Thousands protest Mladic arrest in Serbia



Nationalists furious that government apprehended wartime leader About 100 people arrested Thousands of demonstrators sang nationalist songs and carried banners honouring jailed former Bosnian Serb army commander Ratko Mladic yesterday as they poured into the street outside Serbia’s parliament to demand the release of the war crimes suspect, whom they consider a hero. More than 3,000 riot police took positions around government buildings and Western embassies, fearing that the demonstration could turn violent, as similar rallies have in the past. Riot police blocked small groups of extremists from reaching the rally. Some in the crowd, which numbered at least 7,000, chanted right-wing slogans. A few gave Nazi salutes. Demonstrators

said Serbia should not hand Mladic over to the UN war crimes court in The Hague, Netherlands. Demonstrators demanded the ouster of Serbia’s pro-Western President Boris Tadic, who ordered Mladic’s arrest. A sign on the stage read, “Tadic is not Serbia.” Supporters of the extreme nationalist Radical Party were bused in to attend the rally. Right-wing extremists and hooligan groups have also urged followers to appear in large numbers. The UN tribunal charged Mladic with genocide in 1995, accusing him of orchestrating the massacre of 8,000 Muslim men and boys in Srebrenica and other war crimes of Bosnia’s 1992-95 war.

PM tours historic town


Stephen Harper’s visit comes as country faces major money woes Prime minister takes break from economic talks during visit to Greece Hundreds of Greeks lined the streets of the town of Kalavryta yesterday to welcome Prime Minister Stephen Harper as he toured the site of a Second World War massacre by the Nazis. Harper was cheered as he entered the Agia Lavra monastery, where the Greek revolt for independ-

ence against the Ottoman empire began in 1821. In 1943, the Nazis executed 498 Greek men and boys and torched the monastery as a reprisal for attacks by Greek guerilla fighters. Among those killed was the grandfather of the PM’s spokesman, Dmitri Soudas. The people of the town about three hours’ drive

from Athens were obviously proud of their link to the Canadian government. Former mayor George Lazouras told those assembled at a monument to the massacre victims that Canada has allowed many people of Greek origin to live there and succeed. “One such proud example is your communications

officer, Dimitri Soudas,” Lazouras said via a translator. “That is why, prime minister, your presence here today has special importance and meaning.” Harper called the visit sombre. “These are things we must never forget even as we move forward together,” he said. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Church influence falters as Malta says ‘Yes’ to divorce

Church leadership issues statement expressing regret for its behaviour during referendum Priests urged parishioners to vote ‘No’ during sermons in country’s 400 Catholic churches LEON NEAL/GETTY IMAGES

Malta — a tiny, staunchly Catholic Mediterranean island — has voted in favour of legalizing divorce, according to the results of a referendum. Malta is the last remaining European Union nation that bans divorce. But what had been billed as a historic referendum has ushered in a “new Malta,” according to a leading politician. Yesterday’s final results of the polling the day before showed that 52.67 per cent of people voted in favour of divorce, according to the Times of Malta. Prime Minister Lawrence Gonzi, who had campaigned against di-

vorce, said parliament would respect the will of the people in the non-binding referendum and work on legislation to legalize divorce. The issue has been hotly debated and allegiances went beyond party lines. “This is a conservative society, but Maltese still live like Europeans. This regularizes their lives,” said analyst Saviour Balzan, whose newspaper, Malta Today, had campaigned in favour of the legalization of divorce. “It gives a new lifeline to hundreds of people.” Balzan also said the “Yes” victory makes Malta more European.

“Even though the result is not what I wished for, now it is our duty to see that the will of the majority is respected.” MALTESE PRIME MINISTER LAWRENCE GONZI, IN A TELEVISED SPEECH

“Divorce is not an obligation for a member state, but it brings us closer to Europe,” he told The Associated Press. “Europe is not just directives and legal impositions, it’s also about culture.” Malta, which also bans abortion, has long Catholic

traditions and the church’s influence on the nation’s 400,000 citizens is still significant. Some 95 per cent of the population calls itself Roman Catholic. Pope Benedict XVI visited the island last year. The Catholic Church does not permit divorce

but does allow annulments. Joseph Muscat, the prodivorce leader of the opposition Labor Party, said a new Malta had been born, the Times of Malta reported. The head of the Divorce Movement, Deborah Schembri, said the committee would remain active until divorce legislation was enacted. “Now the people have spoken, let us give them what they want,” she was quoted as saying by the newspaper. Turnout stood at around 72 per cent — a high figure by Western standards but among the lowest in Maltese voting. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Maltese cannot remarry Malta currently has laws that allow married couples to separate and work out the dividing of assets and the custody of children. But even couples who married in civil ceremonies — only allowed in the mid-1970s — cannot get divorces in Malta once separated. In short, they can’t remarry. Seven per cent of Malta’s citizens are separated. But marriage breakups are growing, with the annual rate hitting 27 per cent in the last several years. Also growing is the number of people living together unmarried. Partners who split up have no legal recourse for dividing assets or anything else. TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Conspiracy Culture co-owners Kadina Yu and Patrick Whyte.

What’s your attitude toward exercise?

Was 9-11 an inside job? Are crop circles evidence of aliens? And was Osama bin Laden a CIA asset? Step LIA GRAINGER inside Conspiracy Culture on METRO TORONTO Queen Street West near Roncesvalles and shop owner Patrick Whyte will happily explain why the answers to all of the above questions are quite possibly yes. “Oh, there’s definitely an appetite for this information,” Whyte says of the conspiracy-related material he sells. “People are searching for answers.” In the wake of the 9-11 terrorist attacks 10 years ago, Whyte found himself embroiled in just such a search. He wanted hard information — books, films, newspapers — about the numerous conspiracy theories that were ubiquitous online. Yet, in Toronto, he found next to nothing. Recognizing a void, Whyte decided the city needed a physical space where curious individuals could find alternative information. With the help of his wife and co-owner Kadina Yu, Conspiracy Culture opened its doors for business in 2006. “We felt we could help legitimize these ideas with a physical storefront,” says Whyte, flipping through a book on bin Laden’s ties to the CIA. You won’t find these sections at Chapters: Shelves labelled cryptozoology, mythical beasts, secret societies, and aliens and UFOs are stacked high with titles like Aliens and the Scalpel, Bird Flu: A Virus Of Our Own Hatching, and Chemtrails Confirmed. “We try to provide a range of titles so people can come to their own conclusions,” says Whyte, who spends much of his 60-plus hours in the shop each week conversing with devoted customers eager to have found someone willing to listen to their often colourful postulations. A popular topic of late has been bin Laden’s death: Whyte is quick to remind me that bin Laden’s real name is actually Tim Osman, and that he is probably still a CIA asset. More than a bookstore, Conspiracy Culture also hosts events and speakers on topics like UFOs, chemtrails and the Illuminati. “It’s definitely a hub for those devoted to finding the truth,” says Whyte, who is in the midst of planning a five-hour show at the Bloor Cinema to commemorate the 10th anniversary of 9-11. Whyte says many of his customers think of Conspiracy Culture as “a candy store for free thinkers.” For them, the truth is out there, so long as you question everything.

Cartoon by Michael de Adder Worth mentioning MOREHEAD CITY, N.C.

Archaeologists recovered the first anchor from what’s believed to be the wreck of the pirate Blackbeard’s flagship off the North Carolina coast Friday, a move that might change plans about how to save the rest of the almost 300-year-old artifacts from the central part of the ship. Divers had planned to recover the secondlargest artifact on what’s believed to be the Queen Anne’s Revenge but discovered it was too wellattached to other items in the ballast pile, said project manager Mark Wilde-Ramsing. Instead, they pulled up another anchor that is the thirdlargest artifact and likely was the typical anchor for the ship. Apparently, pirates had everyday anchors and special anchors just as the rest of us have everyday dishes and good china. In 1717, Blackbeard captured a French slave ship and renamed it Queen Anne’s Revenge. Blackbeard, whose real name was widely believed to be Edward Teach or Thatch, settled in Bath, N.C., and received a governor’s pardon. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


Case of mummy smuggling wrapped up The shipping label said the mailed package contained replicas of Peruvian ceramics. An X-ray machine used by customs agents discovered it really held three skulls and a mummy more than 2,000 years old. Authorities said Friday the package was intercepted at Argentina’s central post office, and an Argentine citizen who was waiting for the shipment has been detained as part of an investiga-

tion into illegal trading in ancient cultural artifacts. Officials speculated the package would have been relayed to a museum or a private collector in Europe, where such old bones are in demand because of the blankets and other woven material that surround ancient South American mummies. A preliminary evaluation by Argentina’s national archaeology institute determined the bones are from the pre-Inca Paracas culture on Peru’s coast, and date from between the 7th and 3rd centuries BC, officials said. Last year, Bolivian police foiled a similar mummy mailing enterprise and detained a woman who tried to send a Peruvian mummy to France. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

HAVE YOU SEEN ADS LIKE THIS? “MONEY PROBLEMS?” “CREDIT PROBLEMS? Pay NO interest” “Reduce your debt by up to 80%”

Do they sound too good to be true? That’s because they are only telling you HALF OF THE STORY! The procedure you are being sold is called a consumer proposal and may ONLY be administered by a licenced trustee in bankruptcy. After you pay these “consultants” a fee – hundreds, sometimes thousands of dollars – they refer you to a trustee to actually do the work (their ads don’t tell you that). Before you sign any forms, before you pay any fees, “google” consumer proposals and see for yourself… In order for a consumer proposal to be accepted you need to offer your creditors: 1) 2)

More money than they would get if you filed for bankrutpcy; and Enough money to make it “worth your creditors time” – currently that is around 1/3 of what you owe

There’s no mystery, there’s no clever deals or negotiation going on. These guys never actually speak to your creditors. So why are you paying them a fee? The choice is yours – if after you speak to a trustee, you still think there’s a reason to use one of these “consulting” firms then go ahead – to date, we’ve never heard of anyone going back once they hear the whole story… Still not convinced? Their first meeting is free – before you go back a second time and start paying their fees give us a call. We’ll walk you through all of your options and then you can decide what’s best for you and your family. One more thing – there are NO upfront fees to file a consumer proposal – if someone wants you to pay a fee BEFORE they file your paperwork then you aren’t dealing with the right people!

2 scene Box office

X-Men: First Class, which opens Friday, tells the story of how Magneto (played by Michael Fassbender), right, turned against his friend Charles Xavier (James McAvoy).

A First Class superhero film? Opening this week, X-Men: First Class is the prequel to an extremely successful franchise STEVE GOW


It’s curious that while Hollywood seems to be making less movies in general, we are entering a summer that features no less than four big-budget superhero blockbusters — including this Friday’s release of X-Men: First Class. “It’s probably down to the fact that maybe less people are going to the cinema and so they make films that are large in scale where you would

want to go see it on a big screen,” offered star Michael Fassbender recently from New York. “Genres take hold and they run for a while — I would say that’s one of the reasons (superhero movies hold up).” It probably doesn’t hurt that X-Men: First Class is also the prequel to a very successful franchise that began as pulp fiction in 1963. The beginning of the saga, X-Men: First Class features the original mutant superheroes and how the once-upright Magneto

Good vs. Evil Charles Xavier A powerful telepath who can control minds, Xavier recruits fellow mutants to stop a global threat. Magneto Erik Lehnsherr discovered his power of magnetism under terrible circumstances and sets his sights on revenge with his mutant ability.

(Fassbender) turned against his friend Charles Xavier (James McAvoy).

“There’s such an incredible history there,” said McAvoy of the franchise’s legacy. “But the main thing that runs through all the X-Men saga — whether it’s the comic books, cartoon-form or movies — is that sense of the outsider being the character that you’re exploring ... that has to be one reason why it’s stuck around for so long.” The previous films surely added fans to the franchise as well. However, McAvoy and Fassbender weren’t intim-

idated by expectations of portraying the respective roles that Ian McKellan and Patrick Stewart defined in the movies. “I definitely watched the films,” said Fassbender. “I was going to study Ian McKellan, perhaps as a young man and his movements, nuances, voice and then decided not to do that and just use the source material available in the comic books — to just take a totally fresh look at it, wipe the slate clean and go for something new.”

Kate, shmate: TV heavyweights eye Pippa Middleton First she had a facebook page dedicated to her derrière Now the likes of Barbara Walters and Oprah want Kate Middleton’s sis to rock American TV

Celebrity tweets



“I’ll make you a deal, you stop telling lies about me, and I’ll stop telling the truth about you (you know who you are).”

“Hey @Oprah — Get a job!” @peeweeherman

“Discover the power of carrots” at the Carrot Museum: ”

“I feel like my @Pink middle finger is sacred. I’ve been giving it away too easily.”


After making a splash at her sister’s royal wedding last month, Pippa Middleton is apparently in high demand — especially among U.S. TV heavyweights like Barbara Walters. “Years ago, when Kate broke up with Prince William briefly, Barbara tried to hire her as a View co-host,” a source tells the National Enquirer. “But now she thinks Pippa’s so

sassy, young and gorgeous, she’d be a fantastic fit. Ratings would be amazing!” But Walters isn’t the only one with her eyes on Middleton, as Oprah Winfrey “wants Pippa to host her own show for her OWN network,” according to the source. “O knows it would be a great ratings coup because Pippa’s a star on fire — and Americans are so obsessed with the royals.” METRO

The Snuzzie turns a baby’s cries into classical music, or the song of your choice.

Inventions we wish existed

You need this

Here are some great ideas with input from Mike Drummond, editor of Investors Digest

Protect-a-Bub This series of sunshades —attachable to strollers and car seats, and available worldwide — will protect your child from harmful rays. The “classic” edition offers UPF 50+, the highest amount possible. MWN

Add some pep to your family’s daily breakfast routine.

The Dummy Dispenser

The Snuzzie

What it does: Hanging

electronic muzzle device, the Snuzzie turns a child’s cries whatever sound you wish, via downloadable MP3s. Future versions will be able to identify what your child wants from each cry. Says Drummond: “Finally a product that addresses the most annoying consumer group — babies! In all honesty. this is a product for the narcissistic sadist — which happens to cover a large market segment, given the popularity of botox, and the Kardashians.”

What it does: An

from the crib like a Pez dispenser, it distributes pacifiers when the baby needs one — automatically. If the baby is too young to grab the dummy, a robot arm, covered in kid-friendly foam material, extends and places it gently in her mouth. Says Drummond: “I suspect Pavlov would love this little number. It encourages motor skills and links desires and behaviour, assuming the dispenser responds to baby cries.”

The Inflatable Stroller

The Self-Cleaning Floor

The PooLarm

What it does: Small

What it does: An invisi-

enough to fit in your pocket, this product inflates, with the press of a button, to a full sized stroller, made of durable plastic. Says Drummond: “I can get behind this product, having been behind far too many stroller-pushing parents at airport security checkpoints. This seems like a winwin-win for all concerned. The parent gets convenience; the baby gets something airy to ride in; and I don’t have to wait at airports.”

Climb every mountain How a tragic family circumstance inspired one man to reach for the top


When asked to scale the tallest mountain in Africa to improve the quality of life for children struggling with mental illness, Bryce Wylde only had to think for second. “I’ll do it,” he said. “Count me in.” Wylde is well known as one of Canada’s leading authorities on alternative medicine, for his weekly television show on CP24 and his guest appearances on Dr. Oz. But he had never spoken publicly about a subject that is close to

CP24 host Bryce Wylde will attempt to scale Mount Kilimanjaro in an effort to conquer the stigma of adolescent mental illness.

his heart. “My family has been riddled with mental health issues,” Bryce admits. He watched his late father struggle his whole

life and it left a lasting impact on how Bryce looks at life and health. Climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro is very challenging and I ask him what he’ll


be feeling the day he reaches the top. Will it be personal fulfillment, excitement and accomplishment? Bryce grows silent and his eyes slowly fill with tears. “That day I’ll be thinking about my Dad,” he says emotionally, “and the hope that other children will never have to go through what he did.”

Junior’s home from college


As students return home from school for the summer, parents brace for piles of laundry, late nights and a very different family dynamic After nine months away, campus and the place where college students grew up may seem like worlds apart. Summer at home – so often eagerly awaited by the students, their parents and siblings – is often a mixedup time of happy reunions, unexpected challenges and weird new family dynamics as not-quite adult kids return temporarily to the nest. “They have a whole new world, filled with new friends and new ideas, new independence,” and that sometimes clashes with things back home, said psychologist Karen Levin Coburn, a consultant at Washington University in St. Louis and author of Letting Go: A Parent’s Guide to Understanding the College Years. Cindy Jez, a 55-year-old real estate manager in Richmond, Va., has gone through these transition summers several times with her two oldest boys, a

Timeless wisdom Karen Levin Coburn’s book, Letting Go: A Parent’s Guide to Understanding the College Years, was first printed in 1988. Families should discuss expectations soon after their students arrive back home – things like curfews, household chores, family dinners, and spending money, so everyone is one the same page, Coburn said. Despite all their new-found independence, for college kids, home “is still their emotional touchstone. It’s just important for parents to be sensitive to that,” Coburn said.

“The first time they come back there’s always an adjustment period. There are still boundaries at home.” CINDY JEZ, MOTHER OF STUDENTS

junior and senior in college. “I remember crying when they first went to college. Now I’m crying when they come home,” she jokes. Don’t get her wrong – Jez loves having the boys back home. And yet, she also knows their return means piles of dirty laundry, a perennially lost TV remote, a disconnected security alarm to accommodate their late nights out, and jealousy from her two younger sons as the big men on campus suddenly get all the attention. “The first time they come back there’s always an adjustment period,” Jez said. They’re used to the freedom of college life, and “there are still boundaries at home.” “I try not to be a nag. I try to recognize that they’re young adults,” she says of sons Nolan, 20, and Cory, 22. “They need to have their own sense of responsibility. At the same time, I find myself constantly doing reminders. I’ll send them texts: Picked up eight pairs of filthy socks in the family room last night.” “It’s a balancing act” for everybody, Jez said. Meryl Pearlstein, a New York City public relations executive and writer, experienced that last summer when her son, Evan, returned home after freshman year at the University of Vermont. Having him

back home was a treat, and knowing he’d successfully navigated that first year away made Pearlstein and her husband proud. But with a younger son at home, “there are turf wars for the car, the living room, the TV and more,” Pearlstein said. “I do hate having World

Wrestling Federation on TV and finding snack wrappers in the living room.” And when Evan would announce that he’d be home at 3 a.m., “We said, ‘No you won’t.’” “There’s a bit of give and take over the summer,” Pearlstein said. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

On the health-care horizon

Globalization, immigration and an aging population are creating new career opportunities in health care Here’s how the medical world is going to change in the coming years

Growing older Canada’s population is expected to age rapidly until 2031, by which time the entire baby boom generation would have turned 65. The number of senior citizens could more than double, outnumbering children for the first time. By 2036, the median age of the population would range between 42 and 45 years, compared with the current median of 39.5. Projections also show Canada would have far more elderly people. In 2009, there were roughly 1.3 million people aged 80 or over. This could increase to 3.3 million by 2036. FROM STATISTICS CANADA STUDIES RELEASED LAST YEAR



f you have a mind for science and a heart for caring, the future looks full of promise. Thanks to changing demographics — an aging population and increased immigration — those interested in a career in health sciences have a wealth of options. “The future is bright because there is always going to be a job in health care,” says Dr. Jacques Bradwejn, Dean of the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Ottawa. As Canadians grow older and the popula-


tion becomes more diversified, he says, the field is ripe with opportunity. By 2025, one in four Canadians will be over 65, and those older Canadians will need help with their health. What that means for those interested in health sciences is a range of new career options. Home health care

Research shows people recover faster in their own homes, and a growing number of careers will revolve around providing that home-based care. In fact, experts are predicting hospitals will become places of training

rather than treatment, and homes will be the place where the bulk of care is received, says Aleksandra Zecevic who teaches aging and health at the University of Western Ontario. The “McJobs” of the future will be personal care workers, as corporations enter the field in the same way privatization took over garbage collection, and the current haphazard approach to home care becomes more efficient, predicts Dr. Ken Rockwood, professor of geriatric medicine at Dalhousie. A host of other opportunities will arise to meet the home health-care

There’s a growing need for professionals who can tackle emerging infectious diseases.

Geriatric rehabilitation is being combined with nutrition, physiotherapy and occupational therapy.

A growing immigrant population is demanding alternative approaches to health care.

lems — obesity, diabetes, heart disease, cancer and dementia. Integrated care will become key, creating a need for new disciplines such as geriatric rehabilitation aides with skill sets such as nutrition, physiotherapy and occupational therapy, Dr. Rockwood says. And, there will be more collaboration between health professionals, adds Doug Angus, director of the PhD Program in Population Health at University of Ottawa. “Traditionally we’ve trained people from a narrow clinical perspective,” but physicians, dieticians, physiotherapists and chiropractors will need to work together in family healthcare teams or community health centres.

Diversity The diversity of Canada’s population will continue to increase significantly during the next two decades. Between now and 2031, the foreign-born population of Canada could increase approximately four times faster than the rest of the population. By 2031, between 25 and 28 per cent of the population could be foreign-born. About 55 per cent of this population would be born in Asia. By 2031, nearly one-half (46 per cent) of Canadians aged 15 and over would be foreign-born, or would have at least one foreignborn parent, up from 39 per cent in 2006. FROM STATISTICS CANADA STUDIES RELEASED LAST YEAR


There will be a growing need for health-care providers who specialize in the elderly — from doctors of geriatric medicine, to gerontology-focused nurses and social workers — through programs like Grant MacEwan University in Edmonton, which offers a distance certificate program in Post-Basic Nursing Practice, UBC’s Okanagan campus two-year Bachelor of Social Work Aging Specialization, and Toronto’s Seneca College two-year diploma for social service worker in gerontology. Holistic health

A growing immigrant population will bring more opportunities. With different backgrounds come different requirements. One example, Angus says, is Vancouver General Hospital, which deals with a large Asian population and is combining Eastern and Western approaches to medicine. While a variety of colleges and institutes offer training in holistic and naturopathic medicines, mainstream health science

programs, like that at University of Western Ontario, now expose undergrads to alternative approaches in health care as well. Disease management

With immigration and globalization, there’s a growing need for professionals who can tackle emerging infectious diseases — think SARS and H1N1. Other diseases, like TB, are re-emerging and providing new challenges since they’re drug resistant. There’s a demand for epidemiologists and other professionals who can monitor the growth of viruses and bacteria, predict how populations might evolve and plan for pandemic preparedness. With an aging population and medical advances, conditions that once were acute and life-threatening, like diabetes and coronary artery disease, are becoming chronic illnesses that will require specialists in health promotion, disease prevention, disease management and rehabilitation to help patients and their families manage their disease.

The fields of engineering and computer science will also have a role in health care. Imagine a world where your “smart home” has toilets that automatically analyze urine to inform your fridge what nutrients

you need, or monitors that let you know by your heart rate or sweat rate to alter the room temperature. Some of the innovations are already happening, as robotics enable doctors to perform minimally invasive or remote surgery.

And with hundreds of new drugs introduced each year around the world, several colleges like Seneca and Humber in Toronto offer training for much-needed clinical researchers to design, monitor and manage clinical trials.

Taste the waste: unwanted food to be resold as lunch Millions of tons of food is wasted every year in the U.K. But it’s a culinary treasure trove for one café in Haringey, North London, that collects unsold supermarket food and cooks budget meals for hungry clients ANTHONY JOHNSTON


We would all cringe at the sight of unsold food from shops and restaurant tossed into roadside skips, but how would you react to unwanted food served in a restaurant for a hungry lunchtime clientele? This is exactly the business of FoodCycle, a London-based charity that turns surplus food from retailers into hearty budget meals. They run a community café in Haringey, north

London, which is abuzz with residents and moms pushing prams come lunchtime, feasting upon dishes of unused food produce donated by local supermarkets. The fruit and vegetables they get are a day or two past the shops’ sell-by date. Resold meat or fish is off the menu “for safety reasons,” café manager Jessica Veltman says. Every year 1.4 million tons of food are wasted by U.K. retailers while 11.9 million tons is thrown out by households, says WRAP, the government recycling body.



Good, not scary meal Starter: Parsnip & carrot

“At first, hellish images of moldy vegetables on my plate tormented me – but the taste made me think... mmm, this is yummy!”

soup. It was a little too peppery. Were they trying to mask something? Main course: Jacket potato, topped by aubergines, tomatoes, kidney beans and cheese. No sooner had I tucked into my meal

than it began to look like a dog’s dinner. But presentation aside, the potato filled a hole in my belly with tasty vegetable goodness. I was left satisfied. Dessert: Apple & cinnamon cake. Somewhat soggy but in truth scrumptious. Verdict: In the end, any ‘horror food’ images were a distant memory. The wholesome meal, and family-friendly ambience, put my mind – and indeed my stomach — at complete ease.

Jays get to White Sox early CHRIS YOUNG/THE CANADIAN PRESS

First inning homers pace Toronto’s blowout win Chicago starter irked by Bautista’s swagger Back-to-back home runs ended a long drought for Aaron Hill and Edwin Encarnacion. Hill hit his first homer of the season and first career grand slam before Encarnacion also hit his first homer, and the Blue Jays went on to beat the Chicago White Sox 13-4 yesterday. Encarnacion’s homer completed a six-run first inning for the Jays (27-26), who had 18 hits to win three of the four-game series. “It’s taken a while,” Hill said. “It’s always nice. It relaxes you a bit to get one on the board and you keep going.” Hill couldn’t remember hitting a grand slam in college, either. “It’s something I’ve always wanted to do,” he said. “Obviously, I’ve never done it before. To get the team rolling, especially in the first inning, it’s always nice.” Corey Patterson hit his

fourth homer of the season for Toronto and had four hits and three RBIs. He had a career high five hits including the game-winning homer Saturday in the 14th inning. Carlos Quentin hit his 13th homer for Chicago (2431) while Ramon Castro added his second of the season in the ninth inning. Blue Jays left-hander Ricky Romero (5-4) has often lacked run support this season but took advantage of the offence, allowing six hits and two runs in seven innings. Romero contributed in another way — Encarnacion used one of the pitcher’s bats to hit his home run before breaking it on a fifth-inning single. “I actually just got my bats in this week because we’re getting ready for interleague play,” Romero said, “And I told (Encarnacion) messing around, if you need a home run just go grab my bat because it probably has a lot in it.

“Sure enough, he comes out of the dugout and he’s kind of flashing the bat in front of me and I said, ‘Oh you are going to use it?’ And sure enough he goes out there and hits a home run with it.” Romero has a couple of other bats left from the shipment and he told En-

carnacion he is welcome to use one of them. “Just don’t break it,” he said. Romero said his warmup in the bullpen did not go well since he couldn’t get his arm angle where he wanted it. “But I battled and I let them put the ball in play and let the defence work,”

he said. “I started feeling a lot better in the last two or three innings. Mechanically, I felt the ball was starting to come out of my hand a little better.” Left-hander John Danks (0-8) allowed nine hits and nine runs in four innings on 96 pitches for the White Sox. THE CANADIAN PRESS

From the day Mike Gillis was hired as general manager of the Vancouver Canucks, he’s done things differently. The status quo isn’t good enough for Gillis. He believes just because something has worked in the past, it doesn’t mean it can’t be improved. In his three years in Vancouver, Gillis has ruffled feathers and his ideas have been mocked. But with the Canucks preparing to play the Boston Bruins in the franchise’s first Stanley Cup final in 17 years it’s hard to argue with the results. “We’ve tried to be as scientific in the approach of developing and interacting with players as we could be,” Gillis said while watching a recent Canuck practice from the stands at Rogers Arena. “I have no idea how much that has influenced the outcome. I think there is some influence for sure.” Gillis talks about the plan he devised for the Canucks. He won’t give specific details of the plan, but points at the team on the ice as its product. “We had a plan that we stuck to no matter what was going on around us, no matter what the speculation was around us,” Gillis said. “We knew we were going to have a good team. We didn’t know if we were going to be able to add parts that would make us a really good team. When those parts began to occur, we got progressively better.” The Stanley Cup final begins Wednesday at Rogers Arena. Game 2 will be Saturday. Gillis and his staff have managed to work within the confines of the NHL salary cap to build a Canuck team full of skill and deep in talent. Goaltender Roberto Luongo was signed to a 12-

year, $64-million US deal. It was a contract that satisfied Luongo while counting as a $5.33-million hit on the Canuck books each year. Gillis convinced other players like Daniel and Henrik Sedin, Alex Burrows and Ryan Kesler to re-sign for less money than what they might have received from other teams. The Canucks reputation as an organization that

wants to win while caring for its players resulted in free agents like defenceman Dan Hamhuis and centre Manny Malhotra picking Vancouver over teams willing to pay them more. “People have focused on the idea that players are taking less,” said Gillis. “Our commitment to them is we are going to spend every cent to make this team better. “If we didn’t follow through on that, we wouldn’t be able to get players to buy into that kind of idea. I think the guys here understand we are committed heavily to winning, no matter what it takes.” The team has a nutritionist. The Canucks dressing room has even been renovated. Henrik Sedin said it’s all made a difference. “They way they treat us in the room, the travel, everything, it’s a matter of guys really wanting to play here,” said the Canucks captain.

EARLY BIRD DEADLINE JUNE 9, 2011 Saint John Sea Dogs defenceman Simon Despres, centre, celebrates his goal with teammates last night.

Sea Dogs win Memorial Cup Jacob DeSerres solid in goal in return to final The second time was the charm for Jacob DeSerres. DeSerres stopped 34 shots to lead the Saint John Sea Dogs to a 3-1 Memorial Cup final win over the Mississauga St. Michael’s Majors last night, disappointing the Hershey Centre sellout crowd of 5,429. The 21-year-old was appearing in his second straight Memorial Cup final. Last year, he helped the Brandon Wheat Kings reach the title game before surrendering nine goals in a loss to the Windsor Spitfires. But the Calgary native was a rock for Sea Dogs, INDIANAPOLIS 500

Crash in last lap tips race JR Hildebrand was one turn away from winning the Indianapolis 500 on his very first try. Then, within sight of the checkered flag, the 23year-old Californian made the ultimate mistake. Hildebrand slammed into the wall on the final

who stormed out to a 2-0 first-period lead before DeSerres stood tall to help his club withstand a spirited comeback bid by the hometown Majors. Simon Despres, Zack Phillips and Jonathan Huberdeau scored for Saint John (3-1), which became the first Maritime team to win the Memorial Cup. Riley Brace replied for Mississauga (3-2). Saint John came out strong in the first period, outshooting the Majors 119. Despres’ unassisted short-handed goal just 2:24 into the first effectively quieted the big crowd. DeSerres made two stelturn, and Dan Wheldon drove past to claim an improbable Indy 500 win yesterday in his first race of the year. “It’s a helpless feeling,” Hildebrand said. Wheldon, the 2005 winner but without a full-time ride this season, appeared headed for his third straight runner-up finish as Hildebrand took the white flag with a comfortable lead and needing only to make it through the last of 200 laps around the 21⁄2-mile speedway.

lar saves after Saint John killed Mississauga’s power play, and that turned out to be important as Phillips scored at 13:17 to make it 2-0. The score flattered the Majors, considering the Sea Dogs didn’t score on four first-period power plays. But Mississauga outplayed the Sea Dogs in the second, outshooting them emphatically 15-6. After Maxim Kitsyn’s shot went off the post early, Brace finally gave the crowd something to cheer about at 14:41 of the second as he cut the Sea Dogs’ lead in half.






The first three turns went smoothly. Then Hildebrand came up on another rookie, Charlie Kimball, in the fourth turn. Instead of backing off, Hildebrand moved to the outside to make the pass, got in the rough patch of the track and lost control. He slammed the wall, allowing Wheldon to drive into Victory Lane. “I caught him in the wrong piece of track,” Hildebrand said. “I got up in the marbles and that was it.” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
