RCMP probing G8 funds

Aboriginal. Day

Mounties looking into case despite auditor general finding no evidence government was trying to deliberately mislead Parliament The RCMP are looking into allegations the Harper government misappropriated funds in order to lavish $50 million on a cabinet minister’s riding prior to last year’s G8 summit. The probe comes on the heels of an auditor general’s report earlier this month, which concluded the government “did not clearly or transparently” explain how the money was going to be spent when it sought approval for a G8 legacy fund for Tony Clement’s riding. The Mounties’ involvement was prompted by a complaint from former Liberal MP Marlene Jennings. She was interviewed for an hour last week by three RCMP officers. “My sense is that they’re taking it very seriously,” Jennings said in an interview yesterday.

Master Cpl. AJ Winters of Halifax participates in the 10th annual Ceremony of Remembrance at the National Aboriginal Veterans Monument in Ottawa yesterday. SEAN KILPATRICK/THE CANADIAN PRESS

Honouring Aboriginal veterans

Yesterday was National Aboriginal Day. “Thousands of First Nations, Inuit and Métis people have served in the First and Second World Wars, in the Korean War and in other times of conflict. More than 500 of these individuals made the ultimate sacrifice and are buried in cemeteries around the world,” Veterans Affairs Canada said in a statement.

Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird shrugged off news of police involvement in the matter. “What this is, is a defeated Liberal candidate in the last election pulling off a public-relations stunt,” he told the Commons. Jennings, who was defeated in the May 2 election, first sought an investigation in the midst of the election campaign. Her complaint was prompted by an early draft of the auditor general’s report, which was leaked mid-campaign. The early draft was much more blunt than the final version released on June 9. It concluded the government “misinformed” Parliament about the G8 legacy fund and suggested it may have acted illegally. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Public Works cuts just the beginning: PSAC CONTRIBUTED

The 687 layoffs announced at Public Works and Government Services Canada are just the beginning of budgetary belt tightening, warns the Public Service Alliance of Canada. “I’m appalled at the way that they are doing this,” said PSAC president John Gordon. “More than 80 per cent of them are going to be here in the national capi-

tal region. And it’s all geared in my view toward privatization and contracting out of public-sector work.” Gordon said the layoffs are the result of a strategic review performed at the department last year. He said the federal government’s budgetary pledge to perform another review to reduce government spending

Lansdowne court fight begins

by $4 billion a year by 2014 will result in “a massive overhaul of employment in the public service.” Gordon said the government can’t reach its goal of reducing the public service by 80,000 positions through attrition. “I think it’s largely in Ottawa that the impact would be felt,” said BMO deputy chief economist Doug

Porter. Barry Nabatian, director at Ottawa market research firm Shore Tanner and Associates, said the most recent announcement is not as great a concern to Ottawa’s economy as what cuts may lie ahead. “The cause for concern is how much and how fast,” Nabatian said.

Case about accountability, obligation of municipal governments to protect the best interests of citizens: Lawyer JESSICA SMITH

@METRONEWS.CA

The Friends of Lansdowne’s fight against a plan to redevelop Lansdowne Park began in earnest in court yesterday. The large courtroom was nearly full of spectators — many of whom laughed when the lawyer for the Friends, Steven Shrybman, referred to the Lansdowne Partnership “Scam” instead of “Plan.” “I haven’t had that Freudian slip before and I won’t repeat it,” he added. Lawyers for the City of Ottawa were mostly silent as Shrybman outlined his case against the city’s agreement with the Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group (OSEG) to redevelop

the park. Shrybman told court the city acted illegally in its procurement process and in its failure to act in good faith. He also alleged the deal’s benefits constitute “bonuses” for OSEG. He took the court back to 2007, when the council of the day approved a plan to hold a design competition but never concluded the competition. Shrybman argued OSEG “jumped the queue” by offering its proposal directly to the city and that the city broke its own procurement rules by beginning talks with OSEG, halting the plans for a design competition and eventually coming to an agreement with the group. The case continues today at 10 a.m.

Just say no to feeding birds POOP CULTURE. The third edition of “Help Keep Wildlife Wild!” is underway in the cities of Ottawa and Gatineau. The campaign aims to build awareness of the negative consequences of feeding wild birds and its impact on the environment. It also seeks to preserve the region’s geese population in urban parks. The NCC says feeding birds can give them health problems, and their excrement may reduce water quality. As the number of geese grows in Mooney’s Bay and Petrie Island beaches, an NCC working group will install “No Bird Feeding” signs in key areas. JOE LOFARO

Wading pools to open Friday SPLASH. Summer marks

the beginning of wadingpool season, and many of Ottawa’s 54 wading pools will be open on Friday. The pools are closed in bad weather, so city officials say that if the sky looks dodgy, you can call the Seasonal Recreation Office (613-580-2590) to find out if the pools are open. But keep in mind that some city pools will not open until June 29. Pool hours and other info are posted at ottawa.ca/parks.

Carl Maceijewski used to sleep somewhere on the street, or in a shelter room with 80 other guys. Now he has a room of his own with a kitchenette. Maceijewski has been living at Ottawa Inner City Health for about a year, after surviving on the street for five. The centre provides care in every sense of the word — mental-health care, physical care, addiction treatment and housing — all in one location. The “treat-everything-allat-once” strategy is helping, Maceijewski said. “My temper is fast. It’s like, if I think something’s going to happen, believe me, I’ll react first. But lately now, I’ll look at the guy and say, ‘Why? Why are we going to argue? Why are we going to fight?’” he said. “Now I say, ‘I’m sorry,’ and usually that’s the end of it.” Yesterday the centre where Maceijewski found refuge hosted a party in MacDonald Gardens Park, where staff and the people they serve got a chance to mix it up over cake and barbecue. “We’re celebrating 10 years of service to the homeless community,” said Wendy Muckle, exec-

utive director of Ottawa Inner City Health. “We know with this population, if you treat only one thing at a time it just doesn’t work and they only get worse,” she said. “In the past 10 years we’ve served a little over 4,000 individuals, people who

were homeless for long periods of their life with complicated problems.” Maceijewski, who said he has a liver problem and not much time left, said he wasn’t always on the street. “I drank my way there. I lost my house, my boat,

my cottage, my van, my station wagon, my lawn mower. I sold a $2,000 lawn mower for $100, then I ran out of funds, had nowhere to go and came downtown.” After going through a “wet” program for his alcoholism, he moved into a room at Inner City Health. “I’ve got no knocks,” he said. “I love it where I am. I wouldn’t give it up for anyone.”

Quick action douses ByWard Market fire JESSICA SMITH/METRO

It took firefighters 20 minutes to put out a blaze in a custom T-shirt store in the ByWard Market yesterday. But they stayed on the scene for more than an hour to ensure there were no hidden flames creeping through the roofs and walls of the old building, Ottawa Fire Service spokesman Marc Messier said. Fire officials later determined that an extension cord used for permanent wiring was a contributing factor to what was deemed

an accidental fire. Firefighters responded to a call at about 6:45 a.m. from an alarm company and a witness who reported flames shooting out of the window of Bang-On. “Crews forced their way in, made their way to the back of the store, found the stairs leading down to the basement, worked their way to the front of the store in the basement and located the fire,” Messier said. Bang-On and Allegro, a womenswear store next

door, are on William Street, across from the market square building. Damages to the building and merchandise were set at about $300,000. “The challenge here was basically the age of the building, so we put in a second-alarm fire early on,” Messier said. The units above the stores show “For Rent” signs. They were vacant when the fire broke out and no one was hurt, Messier said. JESSICA SMITH

Will and Kate’s Canadian tour revealed Prince William and his new bride, Catherine, will travel by passenger jet, bush plane, naval frigate and canoe as they tour Canada next month on their first official overseas trip since their April 29 wedding. The royal couple will attend Canada Day celebrations in Ottawa, dragon boat races in Charlottetown, a street hockey game in Yellowknife and the Stampede Parade in Cal-

gary on their nineday visit. William and Kate’s official itinerary, just released, sets a busy pace for the young couple, beginning with their arrival in Ottawa June 30 and ending with their departure from Calgary July 8. William and Canadi-

an Prime Minister Stephen Harper plan to make speeches at the national celebration. There will be a

video link to Canadian forces in Afghanistan. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will also visit Quebec, where they’ll tour a children’s hospital in Montreal and attend a military ceremony in Quebec City. In between, they’ll spend a night aboard HMCS Montreal, a navy frigate, for a leisurely sail down the St. Lawrence River.

In Yellowknife, they’ll board a float plane for the isolated native community of Blachford Lake, where they’ll take a canoe ride before departing the Northwest Territories for the Calgary Stampede. “This will be perhaps the largest, most-watched royal visit in Canada’s history,” Canadian Heritage Minister James Moore said. “We do expect a record number of Canadians to come out to the public

4th time’s a charm? Tories try Senate reform New bill backed by Tory majority Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s quest to reform the Senate began again in earnest yesterday, his new bill for term limits and support for Senate elections bolstered by the Conservative government’s majority mandate. But the proposed Senate Reform Act, intro-

duced by junior democratic reform minister Tim Uppal, is already expected to face opposition outside of Ottawa and perhaps even within the red chamber. Quebec Premier Jean Charest has promised to go to the courts if the provinces aren’t consult-

Would limit senators appointed after October 2008 to one nine-year term ed and don’t provide their consent for any changes to the Senate. Other provinces, including Ontario, British Columbia and Nova Scotia, have said they would prefer its abolition. Uppal has said he will not let that opposition or court cases stand in the

way of implementing the reforms. This is the fourth time the Conservatives have attempted to bring forward reforms, but the first within the context of a majority government. At the same time, some Conservative senators have expressed reservations about the reforms.

The Conservative government points out that Parliament unilaterally changed the age restriction in 1965 through an amendment to the Constitution. Before then, senators were appointed for life. The other part of the bill provides a framework

for provinces interested in starting up Senate elections. The prime minister would be obliged to consider the elected senators from the provinces, but ultimately would still make the final decision on appointments. THE CANADIAN PRESS SEAN KILPATRICK/THE CANADIAN PRESS

Other images include a man with a tracheotomy smoking and a mother holding a baby with smoking swirling around them.

Chin up! It’s summer

Frustrated farmers in Manitoba say their fields are full of fish. David Reykdal normally sees hundreds of cattle on his farmland. But thanks to this summer’s flooding, he’s seeing thousands of … carp. Reykdal wonders what he’s supposed to do when the water recedes and he’s left with a lot of dead fish. Darcy Hardman is the emergency co-ordinator for the rural municipality of St. Andrews but for now he’s on loan to the rural municipality of Siglunes to help out with the problems being caused by overland flooding. He says he and municipal officials will be getting together soon to toss around some ideas. But he says with high levels of water expected for a while yet, he’s assum-

ing “the smart carp are going to swim that way and get back out into the lake again.” The high water levels are expected to keep rising into mid-July, so cattle farmers say they are facing an uncertain future.

The Israeli government yesterday appealed to Apple Inc. to remove an application called ThirdIntifada from its App Store, saying the program glorifies violence against the Jewish state. Israel’s information minister, Yuli Edelstein, sent the request in an email to Steve Jobs, the chief executive of the iPhone maker. “Intifada” is the Arabic term for two violent upris-

“I am convinced that you are aware of this type of application’s ability to unite many toward an objective that could be disastrous. I therefore turn to you with the request to instruct the immediate removal of the application in question.” EXCERPT FROM ISRAELI INFORMATION MINISTER YULI EDELSTEIN’S EMAIL TO APPLE CEO STEVE JOBS

ings against Israel over the past two decades. The free application encourages its followers to share opinions and organize protests

against Israel. It is linked to a website that helped organize violent clashes with Israeli troops recently along Is-

rael’s frontiers with Lebanon and Syria. “Upon review of the stories, articles and photos published by means of the application, one can easily see that this is in fact antiIsrael.... Furthermore, as is implied by its name, the application calls for an uprising against the State of Israel,” Edelstein wrote. There was no immediate comment by Apple. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SEAN KILPATRICK/THE CANADIAN PRESS

Liberal leader Bob Rae says proposed law to end postal strike is ‘undemocratic’ NDP to vote against bill

Prime Minister Stephen Harper responds to a question in the House of Commons yesterday.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper says including wage provisions in backto-work legislation for Canada Post workers is a fair approach. But critics and the opposition say it makes the bill biased in favour of management of the Crown corporation, which locked out its employees last week after a series of rotating strikes. The Canadian Union of Postal Workers says the rates outlined in the bill are less than what Canada Post put forward in its final offer, effectively punishing them for exercising their right to collective bargaining. Opposition Leader Jack Layton said yesterday the

legislation sends a dangerous signal to workers that if they don’t accept management terms, the government will step in and impose them. Harper did not explain why the wages were included in the bill. “This conflict has been ongoing and it is causing harm to Canadians who are not there at the table,” he said during question period. “We are acting in the best interest of the Canadian economy and we are also acting in a way that is fair for all the employees of the Canadian government.” The two sides were to meet yesterday to continue negotiations. Upon in-

troducing the bill Monday, Labour Minister Lisa Raitt had said part of its purpose was to kickstart stalled talks. New Democrat MP Yves Godin said his party will vote against the bill.

Opposition bristles over back-to-work bill

THE CANADIAN PRESS

Jobs on the line The Canada Post bill is being debated, and the government hopes to see it passed before MPs leave on their summer break at the end of the week. The legislation requires both sides to submit their final offer on non-wage issues and an appointed arbitrator will pick the best one.

The Tories are trying to limit debate, while the opposition parties are trying to scuttle the bill altogether. “The most vulnerable of Canadians are receiving minimal service and it’s time to restore full service to all Canadians. Businesses are hurting. Jobs are on the line,” said Tory MP Ed Komarnicki.

Canada’s big cities attract poverty: StatsCan Canada’s biggest urban areas are stuck in a rut of persistent poverty, while mid-sized cities are gaining ground despite the recent recession, new data from Statistics Canada show. The metropolitan areas of Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal have poverty rates far above the national average, according to a report on income in Canada in 2009. But Quebec City and Victoria, on the other hand, have seen steady and significant declines in the number of people living with

low incomes over the last decade, despite the recent recession. The trends are no surprise to Mike Creek, who works with homeless and impoverished people in Toronto, after spending years in poverty himself. “If you stick around in a smaller community and you have that shame (of living in poverty), you become stigmatized. So I think it’s easier for someone to pack up their bags and try some place else,” Creek says. Urban centres, he says, “provide more opportuni-

After more than a decade of slow, steady decline in the proportion of people living below StatsCan’s low-income cutoff, poverty has started to edge up again. It now stands at 9.6 per cent of the population, up from 9.2 per cent in 2007 and 9.4 per cent in 2008 — but below the 15 per cent seen at the peak of poverty in 1996.

Urban income In Vancouver, the incidence of low-income was 17.8 per cent in 2000. By 2009, it had declined just slightly to 16.9 per cent — the highest for urban areas across the country. Toronto takes second place. The 2009 poverty rate of 13.2 per cent is slightly higher than the 12.4 per cent at the turn of the millennium.

Montreal is in third, with 13.1 per cent — although that’s much lower than 19.7 per cent in 2000. Quebec City. In contrast to the big cities, Quebec City has seen its rate plummet, to just 4.9 per cent in 2009 from 15.7 per cent in 2000. Victoria has seen its incidence of low income fall from 16.2 per cent in 2000 to 6.3 per cent in 2009 — although progress has come in fits and starts.

OCEANS ARE OVERRATED ANYWAY JUST SAYIN’ ... PAUL SULLIVAN METRO

metronews.ca

voices

So you wake up, get out of bed, drag a comb across your head. You open your iPad and the first thing that hits you is: “Mass extinction threatens

oceans.” You spill your coffee in your lap and read a little more: “Multiple ocean stresses threaten globally significant marine extinction.” This from an international meeting of marine scientists who say if things keep going the way they are we will suffer the kind of mass extinction that did in the dinosaurs millions of years ago. The scientists tick off the “multiple oceans stresses”: Global warming, acidification, lack of oxygen, pollution and overfishing. The scientists call for “urgent and unequivocal action” or we’re done for. How do you deal with this stuff ? Put down your toast and call 9-1-1? “Hello? The oceans are threatened with mass extinction? Can you come right away? The coral “Some people reefs are already starting to die! Hurry!” just take their That’s the trouble with heads and bury global warming. It’s just them at the too big to get your head around. Some people just beach. Global take their heads and bury warming? What them at the beach. Global global warming?” warming? What global warming? This is merely natural climate fluctuation. Except all these scientists say it isn’t. “In fact,” they say, this is “unprecedented in the Earth’s history because of the high rate and speed of change.” Scientists? What do they know? How about the real experts, the dissenting journalists and oil company executives — what are they saying? The guy at climate-resistance.org isn’t worried. He dismisses the whole thing as The Fishy, Wishy-Washy report: “Just a couple of dozen eco-warriors in a single room, chatting about their fears.” Well, not to worry. The guy at the climate-resistance website says to chill out. So here we sit, amidst the crumbs, trying to figure out if these greybeards are really just little boys crying wolf, or a bunch of chickens freaked out about the marine equivalent of a falling sky. It’s the same thing on the sky-is-falling front. I mean, greenhouse gases? Come on! Just a bunch of (bad) scientists trying to whip us into a frenzy in order to secure funding. Although I’m not quite sure how funding follows frenzy. The government is no help. It keeps getting the Fossil Award for its well-known addiction to the tar sands and fracking — which is as dirty as it sounds. Oh, well. A couple of nice summer days and all this oceans-dying stuff will be behind us. After all, we have to get ready for Kate and Wills’ state visit. I wonder what she’ll wear. How do you think she’ll look in a biohazard suit?

Cartoon by Michael de Adder Worth mentioning LE BOURGET, France. The plane making one of the biggest splashes at the Paris Air Show carries a grand total of one person and is often delayed because there’s too much wind or too little sun. Andre Borschberg pilots the Solar Impulse, a prototype aircraft powered exclusively by sunlight. While that has put him into the record books as the first pilot to fly 24 hours in an entirely solar-powered plane, it also causes aggravations that travellers anywhere could relate to. Like the time it took him 16 hours to fly to Paris from Brussels — five hours to cover the distance and another 11 hours circling over the airport, waiting for wind conditions to settle down enough for him to land. The plane has a slim dragonfly fuselage with a cockpit that fits just one pilot. Its enormous wing is entirely covered with 10,000 energy-capturing solar cells similar to the ones used in some homes, which generate about 40 horsepower, “the same as a small motor scooter,” Borschberg said.

He should have taken the left at Albuquerque He’s healthy, well-fed and far from home. And he’s quickly become the most popular attraction on a New Zealand beach. If only he could talk. A young penguin apparently took a wrong turn while swimming near Antarctica and endured a 3,200-kilometre journey to New Zealand, the first time in 44 years that one of the creatures has been sighted there in the wild.

Christine Wilton was walking her dog Monday when she discovered the black-and-white bird. “It was out of this world to see it,” she said. “Like someone just dropped it from the sky.” Wilton said the scene on Peka Peka Beach reminded her of the 2006 movie Happy Feet, in which a young penguin finds himself stranded far from home. The bird “was totally in the wrong place,” she said. Estimated to be about 10 months old and 80 centimetres tall, the Emperor penguin was probably born during the last Antarctic winter and may have been searching for squid and krill when it got lost, experts said.

Getting a little help from her friends Girl-Power: Britney Spears, Katy Perry, Nicole Kidman give Selena Gomez boost in new projects The new record — which has three songs co-penned by Gomez — is out next week DARREN CALABRESE/THE CANADIAN PRESS

Katy Perry and Britney Spears appear on a CD together but it's not the latest Now compilation. Rather, the pop singers have written songs on Selena Gomez & the Scene’s new album, When the Sun Goes Down. “I did have a lot of artists that I was very lucky enough to have songs written by and it’s a good, uplifting album,” Gomez said of her third CD. “It’s really fun and very dance-y and I hope people like it.” Spears co-wrote the dance song Whiplash, while Perry co-penned That’s More Like It. Singer Priscilla Renea — who cowrote Rihanna’s California King Bed and Cheryl Cole’s Promise This — co-penned three songs on Gomez’s album, including the lead single and Top 40 hit Who Says. And the disc has a writing credit and guest appearance from British singer Pixie Lott. “I think it’s a powerful CD,” Gomez said in a recent interview. The 18-year-old’s first two albums have reached gold status. The new record — which has three

HANDOUT

Cameron Diaz and Phyllis Smith star in Columbia Pictures’ comedy Bad Teacher.

BAD TEACHER NOTHING NEW IN FOCUS RICHARD CROUSE SCENE@METRONEWS.CA

etroit columnist Bob Talbert once wrote, “Good teachers are costly, teachers cost

D

but bad more.” Of course he wasn’t talking about actual dollars, but the emotional cost of a sketchy education. He could also have been talking about the new Cameron Diaz movie, Bad Teacher, in which she plays – you guessed it – a bad teacher! More concerned with hooking up with a wealthy co-worker (played by her real life ex Justin Timberlake) than with her students, she doesn’t make much of an effort to actually educate until she learns there’s a cash bonus for the teacher with the highest classroom grade average. Bad teachers are nothing

new on the big screen. In Animal House, Donald Sutherland played stoned-out college professor Dave Jennings. Sutherland said he has regrets about the film. Not that he had to parade around dressed only in a shirt and effectively moon the audience, no, he bemoans that he didn’t accept a percentage of the box office as payment. “(Director John) Landis phones up and says, ‘I'm going do this movie called Animal House, and they want to give you two-and-a-half per cent of the profits.’ “And I said, ‘No way! I've got to have my daily salary everyday.’ So I got paid for one day's work and threw way $2 million!” Probably the worst teacher ever appears in Class of 1984, a trashy school drama starring Roddy MacDowell as Terry Corrigan, a fed up teacher who threatens his unruly class with a loaded gun. Director Mark L. Lester claims the scene was based

on a real event, although a follow-up sequence showing an unbalanced Corrigan attempting to run down his students was pure fiction. Due to excessive violence the movie was banned in several countries but is of interest to Canadian audiences for a performance by Hamilton, Ont. punk band Teenage Head. One bad movie teacher actually redeems himself. When we first meet Fast Times at Ridgemont High’s Mr. Hand (Ray Walston) he’s prone to saying things like, “What is this fascination with truancy?” to his students, but near the end of the movie he softens and even pulls out all the stops to help his worst student, Spicoli (Sean Penn), graduate. Ray Walston, so memorable as the uptight Mr. Hand, almost didn’t get the part, however. It was originally offered to Munster’s star Fred Gwynne who declined over objections to the film’s sexual content.

Leonardo DiCaprio and Blake Lively are still enjoying each other’s company, despite rumors the new couple had already split up. DiCaprio and Lively hit a private resort in the coastal town of Carmel, Calif., though they did venture out into town for some shopping and coffee. “Blake ordered two cap-

Winehouse calls off Euro shows VICTOR R. CAIVANO/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Troubled diva Amy Winehouse has cancelled the rest of her European summer concert tour and scrapped all public performances after an embarrassing appearance in Serbia, her spokesman said yesterday.

A short hop and skip over the Ottawa River, Quebec’s Outaouais region offers a captivating contrast to the madness of Parliament Hill just minutes away. Here, Gatineau often takes the spotlight, drawing visitors to its Casino du Lac Leamy and Canadian Museum of Civilization. But look beyond the highrises and you’ll find the real Outaouais. In and around Gatineau Park, a playground to many of Ottawa’s VIPs, time slows as you coast through quaint boroughs like Wake-

The Artists’ Studio Tour is an award-winning trail that takes visitors to the workshops and studios of many specialized local artists and craftspeople. Meet people like Russ Zietz, a professional log builder who now creates wood art and mixed media furnishings with a creative Canadian flair, and Mud Pies Pottery’s Carrie Leavoy, a potter who creates

Japanese-inspired products. For those seeking artisanal edibles, visit the Boucanerie Chelsea, where owners Line Boyer and James Hargreaves have perfected the art of smoking fish and meat. Using only sustainable fish and the sawdust left over from carving out baseball bats, the smokehouse boasts delicately flavoured smoked salmon, scallops, shrimp and tuna. Nearby, don’t miss the award-winning restaurant, Les Fougères, where seasonal cuisine gets the fine dining treatment in a country-elegant dining room, recently named one of the

most romantic restaurants in Canada. Homemade cured meats, terrines and Quebec cheeses are featured alongside local produce like venison, duck and bison. If you suffer from sensitive skin, dryness or eczema, be sure to visit the Savonnerie Olivier Chelsea, where Sonya Ann Legault makes all-natural skincare products like soap, shampoo, bath oil, baby products, makeup remover and shaving cream.

Bewitching Salem offers Witchery and covens aside, there’s a lot more to this thriving community than haunted happenings Salem — the very name conjures witches. Witches hanged in the notorious trials of 1692, witch houses and covens, a Salem Witch Museum and the Witch Dungeon Museum. This city of 41,000 souls is so closely identified with its witch history that flying witch logos adorn police cars and firefighter uniforms — and Salem High School’s mascot is, shockingly, a witch. A thriving, modern witch community practises witchcraft and even has a new public relations outfit, the Witches Education Bureau. Tourists flock to the Salem Common during the town’s “Haunted Happenings,� a monthlong celebration of Hal-

At a nearby mall, a ghoul dressed in black, his face painted white with fake blood around his mouth, stands near a black coffin, spooking customers for a kitschy thrill near a house of horrors. These are typical tourist encounters in this historic Massachusetts seaport.

Salem, one of early America’s most significant seaports, was founded in 1626 by a group of fishermen from Cape Ann. Its name is derived from the Hebrew word for peace, “Shalom.” During the American Revolution, Salem became the centre for privateering, a form of official piracy that authorized captains of private ships to seize British merchant vessels and confiscate valuables. Its maritime dominance in the 1800s also helped Salem produce America’s first millionaires.

STAYCATIONS

The 31st annual TD Ottawa International Jazz Festival starts tomorrow and runs until July 3, featuring about 300 of our nation’s top jazz artists.

Celebrate like Royalty Get those feet tapping at this year’s jazz fest, featuring hundreds of artists from across the country Become a true artissmo at the national art gallery Celebrate Canada Day on Parliament Hill with the Royal newlyweds PAULINE ANDERSON FOR METRO

Don’t fret if you can’t get away from the city this week as Ottawa has enough decadence to make you feel like Royalty. Start your pampering with some of the best jazz in the nation at the 31st annual TD Ottawa International Jazz Festival, running from June 23 to July 3. With its beginnings in 1980 as a humble two-day

weekend of jazz, the festival is now one of the biggest celebrations of domestic talent this country has to offer, attracting some 300 artists. This year, see K.D. Lang & the Siss Boom Bang band perform at several of Ottawa’s finest venues. Single ticket prices range from $28.25 to $56.50, excluding improv shows and depending on the venue. Gold passes are now sold out, so act fast to get a bronze pass for $158.20 or CHRIS JACKSON/GETTY IMAGES)

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are set to arrive in Ottawa on June 30.

$73.45 for students, which gives you access to all Confederation Park Concerts, Studio Series, the National Arts Centre, Late Night Jamming, and more. See ottawajazzfestival.ca for more ticket information and concert schedules. Next, arrange a visit to the National Gallery of Canada to see the great works of Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio, one of Europe’s most esteemed and original artists. The special loan exhibit — Caravaggio and His Followers in Rome — made its exclusive Canadian debut at the Gallery this past weekend and runs until early September. With about 60 works being showcased on the 400th anniversary of the death of this brilliant but temperamental Italian art master, this is one collection not to be missed. Take the kids along with you to the gallery so they can share in the artissimo experience. Work with other families on a massive fabric copy of a

masterpiece showcased in the gallery or get creative and make an art piece of your own. Try on a period costume depicted in one of several paintings on display. Friendly staff are available every step of the way. Take your kids on a self-guided tour and then, before you leave, take a peek at the artissimo gallery, where several children have showcased their original work. Best of all, these activities are all free with admission. Started in 1998, the artissimo art initiative is on every weekend from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Starting June 25, activities run every day of the week until the end of the summer. After a day at the gallery, make sure to take a photo with the kids next to Maman — Louise Bourgeois’s master work of a giant spider made of bronze, stainless steel, and marble — located just outside the gallery’s main entrance. Next, stroll to nearby Nepean Point to check out,

not only the great view, but also Roxy Paine’s One Hundred Foot Line — another stainless steel art structure. This 30.5 meterhigh piece is one of three similar pieces called Dendroids. It’s Paine’s tallest and to many, his most impressive work. Kids love this powerful depiction of a tree that has lost all its branches and leaves. Paine’s accomplished work is a commentary on the close relationship of Canada’s capital with both industry and nature. For information on all Gallery activities and exhibits visit gallery.ca. Complete your Royal week by catching a glimpse of Prince William and Princess Catherine, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, when they arrive on July 1. Join much of the rest of the city in welcoming the royal newlyweds on their first visit to Canada together and celebrate another year of national pride. Canada Day festivities

officially begin at about noon on Parliament Hill, which will be surrounded by a car-free zone for the day. When night falls, enjoy the magnificent fireworks display on the hill.

Jazz Fest Tips The 31st Annual Jazz Festival runs June 23 to July 3. Ticket Prices range from $28.25 to $56.50. Gold passes are sold out, but Bronze passes are still available at a cost of $158.20 for adults, $73.45 for students. Bronze passes give you access to all Confederation Park Concerts, Studio Series, National Arts Centre, Late Night Jamming and more. Visit ottawajazzfestival.ca for more information

Seeing Parliament on foot

ISTOCKPHOTO/THINKSTOCK

A casual stroll from Parliament Hill to the Mint, with a market detour takes about an hour Add another hour for other must-see attractions PETER DOYLE

FOR METRO

With its historic buildings set in a picturesque location, Parliament Hill is among the most popular tourist destinations in the National Capital Region. And while there is plenty to explore onsite — yearround tours of the Senate and House of Commons, for instance, and the daily changing of the Ceremonial Guard in high summer — it also makes a perfect starting point for a family walking tour. Your first stop should be the Capital Infocentre (across the street from Parliament Hill), which offers the latest information on current events and activities, and self-guided tours.

Unless your kids are exceptionally interested in Canadian history, it’s likely best to skip tours of Centre Block (home to the Senate and House of Commons) and East Block (Office of the Governor General and Privy Council Chamber). Visitors of all ages however, will enjoy the climb up the Peace Tower to take in the remarkable view of downtown Ottawa. Try to time your visit with the peal of bells during the daily carillon concert at noon. Once you’re back on the ground, walk behind Centre Block and check out the Library of Parliament — a marvel of Gothic architecture — and the majestic view of the Ottawa

River and distant Gatineau Hills. Leaving Parliament Hill, turn left and walk over the bridge spanning the Rideau Canal. If energetic, take the stairs down and check out the series of locks leading to the Ottawa River. If not, continue around the Chateau Laurier — one of Canada’s historic railway hotels — and head for Major’s Hill Park, an ideal spot for a picnic lunch. If you didn’t bring a lunch, head for the Byward Market (across Mackenzie Avenue and Sussex Street) where you’ll find lots of fresh fruits, vegetables and baked goods, along with dozens of restaurants. This year, the market doubles as an art gallery: three court-

yards along Sussex Street feature high-quality reproductions from the Portrait Gallery of Canada. As you leave the market, take a few minutes to explore two unique street sculptures: the National Peacekeeping Monument and Maman, a giant spider in front of the National Gallery. The gallery is well worth a visit, of course, and admission is free for children under 12 (and for everyone on Thursday evenings). Another kid-friendly option lies one block east: the Royal Canadian Mint. Open Tuesday through Saturday, the Mint offers 45minute tours for $10 per family on weekends (weekday rate is $13). Call ahead for reservations.

A casual, family-friendly stroll around Parliament Hill and the Rideau Canal is a great way to take in Ottawa’s natural and architectural beauty.

Man with a plan STUDENT VOICE TALENTEGG.CA

After completing university, I immediately created a job hunting strategy and used that strategy to find an incredible opportunity in Australia for a Canadian start-up. Here is a break-down of my job-hunt strategy:

job areas or industries. While it may seem counter-intuitive to limit your search, it is actually much easier to tailor your application to specific jobs when they’re all in the same industry. Motivation:

Keep yourself motivated and positive – nobody wants to hire someone who is down in the dumps. This is an often overlooked but important job hunt tactic. Polish:

Make sure every aspect of the job hunt is done properly, from having a well written, proofread cover letter to doing mock interviews with someone who can give useful feedback. I have been on both sides of the interview table and I can say that people who

have a polished resumé, are dressed appropriately, and are comfortable in their knowledge of the position and the company are rare. Get involved:

Companies want students who are motivated and show a history of success. You may think this means work experience, but it can also mean extracurricular activities and sports teams. So, get involved in any way you can! My advice to employers would be to try to craft a job posting in a way that speaks of your brand. Using the typical, dated job posting formula just isn’t going to work anymore. TALENTEGG.CA, CANADA’S ONLINE CAREER RESOURCE FOR STUDENTS AND RECENT GRADS, WANTS TO HEAR YOUR STUDENT VOICE.

Keep your contacts warm and give them a reason to want to hear from you and ultimately help you. Nobody wants to hear from a job searcher only when they need their help. Interact with them via their preferred method of communication. Sometimes this is informally through Twitter, and sometimes it’s a quick email to ask them how their vacation was. By no means should you waste anyone’s time, but building and keeping rapport, even after you secure a job, is an essential part of the job hunt. I had a spreadsheet (literally!) that showed me who all of my contacts were, where they worked, and when I last spoke to them. Don’t be robotic about it, but a little organization helps keep you on track.

However, Saladini’s remarkable dedication to his job also made him a target. As a midnight shift supervisor, Saladini seldom saw his family. But, his hard work paid off when Affinia finally promoted him to a supervisor on the company’s daytime shift. Saladini figured he was set with what he referred to as the “golden shift” at work. But soon after, Affinia needed to fill a void when business picked up and, instead of hiring an extra employee to take on some of the overflow in work, the company figured that Saladini would do the job, without protest. Saladini was summoned to a meeting with his boss and told that his shift schedule would change and, along with it, he would now be given more work without a corresponding increase in

pay. Although Saladini initially agreed, his loyalty soon morphed into anger, believing that he was being exploited by the company for having worked so hard before. Saladini spoke with his boss stating that he did not want his shift to change but he was quickly told that he did not have a choice. He could either report to the new shift, or the company would view him as having resigned. When Saladini refused to agree, he was told to hand in his keys and escorted out of work. However, Saladini was not going to go quietly this time. Believing that the ultimatum to take the new shift or resign was tanta-

mount to a dismissal, he sued Affinia for wrongful dismissal, and recently he won! Canadian courts are loath to uphold resignations proffered under circumstances of pressure or an ultimatum and instead will usually find that the employee had been fired. Here, when Saladini’s boss told him that he must either take the job or resign, he was effectively terminated, according to the judge, who noted that Saladini was told to hand in his keys and leave, which is far more consistent with a dismissal than a resignation.

Work burnout:

Are you feeling the heat?

High expectations are at the root of most office meltdowns

Recognize the signs and take care of yourself ISTOCK

symptoms of stress, such as fatigue and decreased mental function, says Posen. Regular exercise helps reduce stress and elevates people’s moods. Eating well is also very important and one should stay away from caffeine. “Caffeine actually generates a stress reaction in your body,” says Posen. “It stimulates adrenaline, releases cortisone and blocks a natural relaxant in the brain.” While cutting back

With the great expectations placed upon people in today’s always-connected work society, many are feeling the effects of burnout. The good news is it can be eliminated, but it requires people to be honest about what they’re going through. “Unfortunately, people are embarrassed by being burned out and they feel there is a stigma and perhaps a sense of failure they haven’t been able to cope, so they’re often very reluctant to go to the very people that can help them,” says Hilary Predy, the associate vice president of business solutions with Adecco Canada, a human resources company. Burnout doesn’t happen overnight and usually stems from high (and often unreasonable) expectations placed on people,

Face it. You’re biting off more than you can chew at work, and your body and brain are none too happy about it.

says Dr. David Posen, a stress management expert in Oakville, Ont., who has written three books on the topic. Posen says high expectations lead to high levels of effort, which drain people of their energy and lead

them to physical, mental and emotional exhaustion. Some of the early warning signs include mental and physical fatigue, irritability, impatience, sleep disturbance and decreased concentration. To avoid burnout, it is

important people set realistic expectations for their work and what they can accomplish. They must also take good care of themselves and get enough sleep, as many of the symptoms of sleep deprivation are

one’s work hours may seem counter-intuitive, Posen says his patients find they become more productive by working less. For people who are ready to talk with their employer, Eddy Ng, a human resources management professor at Dalhousie University in Halifax, recommends they take advantage of their employee assistance program (EAP) and call the confidential line to get professional help. In the case of smaller firms that don’t have an EAP, it will probably be necessary for people to talk with their boss. Ng says people should ask for help and says it is helpful if they explain why they are burned out. Possible reasons could include workload, unfair treatment, role conflicts and work/life demands. “Burnout can be reversed,” he says.

Thrashers sale gets unanimous approval The NHL board of governors has unanimously approved the sale of the Atlanta Thrashers, paving the way for the club to move to Winnipeg for next season. True North Sports and Entertainment bought the team last month and announced it was bringing the Thrashers to Winnipeg, which lost the Jets to Phoenix after the 1995-96 season. Yesterday’s vote by the board was the final hurdle in the process to relocate the team. The votes on the sale and the relocation were unanimous among the league’s owners. “We are very honoured by the NHL board of governors’ unanimous decision today,” Mark Chipman, True North’s chairman of the board, said in a statement. “We know that the fans of this province have an appetite for NHL hockey that is rivalled by few in the league and intend to work very hard to make Manitobans proud of our franchise for years to come.” There was a different emotion in Atlanta. “It’s a sad day for hockey fans in Atlanta, but the franchise is going to a good place and run by good people,” Thrashers president Don Waddell said. “I wish them well, because a lot of good people are going to go with them.” The sale is reportedly for $170 million US, including a $60-million relocation fee that will be split by the rest of the owners.

Serena Williams shows her emotions after winning her first-round match yesterday.

Williams in tears after winning return Health problems had kept her from playing in a Grand Slam event for a year Federer, Djokovic both advance to the next round of Wimbledon Returning to Grand Slam tennis after a year away with health problems, Serena Williams opened her Wimbledon title defence yesterday by beating Aravane Rezai in three sets — then burst into tears on Centre Court. After serving her 13th ace to close a 6-3, 3-6, 6-1 victory, Williams buried her face in her towel and sobbed from her courtside chair. She was still crying as she left the court, overcome with emotion after enduring a long layoff that included two foot operations and treatment for blood clots in

her lungs. “I usually don’t cry ... but it’s just been so hard,” the four-time Wimbledon champion said. “I never dreamt I would be here right now. And then to win. I just wanted to win at least one match here.” Following Williams on Centre Court was Roger Federer, who began his chase for a record-equalling seventh Wimbledon championship by beating Mikhail Kukushkin of Kaza-

khstan 7-6 (2), 6-4, 6-2 in the wind. Second-seeded Novak Djokovic, playing for the first time since his 43match winning streak was stopped by Federer at the French Open, sailed into the second round with a 64, 6-1, 6-1 victory over Jeremy Chardy of France. Djokovic dropped only 11 points on serve. Canadians Rebecca Marino and Stephanie Dubois advanced to the second

round after posting their first career wins at the All England club. But Aleksandra Wozniak of Blainville, Que., struggling with her comeback from an elbow injury, lost her first-round match to Czech Barbora Zahlavova Strycova 7-6 (7), 6-4. And Frank Dancevic of Niagara Falls squandered two match points in a 3-6, 3-6, 64, 7-6 (6), 6-2 loss to Brazilian Ricardo Mello. Vancouver’s Marino defeated Patricia MayrAchleitner of Austria 6-3, 7-6 (5). THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

“Hypothetically, you’re talking about a guy who in his last year in the National Hockey League had 75 points. That’s leading our team last year ... It’s tough not to think about adding 75 points to your roster if that’s something you’re capable of doing.” PITTSBURGH PENGUINS

Rematch takes much less time The rematch of the longest match in tennis history certainly was a lot shorter.

quicker than the last time we played.” Isner also won their first-round marathon at the All England Club in 2010, when play twice was suspended by darkness and the match shattered all sorts of records, including for most time on court, most total games, longest set and most aces.

Raptors now in Casey’s hands

CHRIS YOUNG/THE CANADIAN PRESS

New coach introduced ahead of tomorrow’s NBA draft Reportedly beat Lawrence Frank for Toronto job Dwane Casey may not know hockey, but the Toronto Raptors’ new head coach wants to bring some of the sport’s hard-nosed character to the struggling NBA team. The Raptors introduced the former Dallas assistant yesterday, nine days after he helped the Mavericks win the NBA title. Casey partially credits the Mavericks’ performance against LeBron James and the Miami Heat to breaking down hockey video. “We felt like we were playing too soft against Miami to start the series and it really set the tone (defensively),” Casey said at the Air Canada Centre. “I don’t know a lot about hockey. I know I’ll learn about it. But we spliced in (footage of ) those guys checking players up into the (glass), into the boards and that type of thing, and that’s the way we want to play. “We want to make sure people feel us when they cut through the lane. And that’s a mindset, and that’s having a disposition — a bad disposition.” Casey takes over one of the NBA’s worst defensive

“Defensively I’m going to be a hands-on control freak, so to speak. Offensively I’m going to trust them and give them freedom.” RAPTORS HEAD COACH DWANE CASEY

squads coming off a 22-60 season. The 54-year-old native of Morganfield, Ky., said his top goal is to give the Raptors a “defensive identity.” Casey replaces Canadian Jay Triano, who was shuffled into the front office earlier this month and stood quietly at the back of the news conference. General manager Bryan Colangelo said the move made sense for both Casey and the Raptors. “This is the right fit for Dwane Casey and it’s the right fit for the Toronto Raptors organization,” Colangelo said, adding Mavs head coach Rick Carlisle called him just hours after winning the title to see what it would take for Casey to get the job in Toronto. THE CANADIAN PRESS

New Raptors head coach Dwane Casey speaks to members of the media yesterday.

NBA deal mired in cap issues Saying it reflects a “desire to go as far as we can to avoid a lockout,” NBA commissioner David Stern revealed yesterday that owners have moved off their insistence on a hard salary cap. Players don’t see it that way. So it appears the cap system remains the biggest obstacle to a new collective bargaining agreement before the June 30 deadline. Stern said the league has proposed a “flex cap,” in which teams would target a uniform dollar amount to spend, but would still be permitted to exceed up to an unspecified level. Players say it’s still a hard cap, because the ceiling would eventually kick in. Stern said the owners’ proposal ensures total players’ compensation would never fall below $2 billion US a year in a 10-year contract, slightly less than the league paid this season. He said the average player salary would be about $5 million and deputy commissioner Adam Silver said the goal would be a 5050 split of basketball revenues. The players currently get 57 per cent. Stern refused to call this his last offer, but he said the “cupboard is getting barer and barer.” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Battery in the back

Cooling things down

Fuel economy

The eAssist gets its energy supply from a 115-volt lithium-ion battery that’s positioned behind the rear seat. The 29-kilogram battery’s compact size means that the LaCrosse’s 60:40 split rear seat will still fold flat for additional storage as before (unlike some other hybrid models), but with only about a 15 per cent reduction in trunk space.

Lithium-ion batteries tend to generate a lot of heat, as anyone who has ever operated a laptop computer on their lap can readily attest. To help cool things down, an electric fan is used that draws air from a vent located on the parcel shelf behind the rear seat. According to Buick, the fan motor will not be noisy enough to disturb any passengers.

Buick promises that the driving experience with the new hardware won’t differ from piloting a regular gas-engine model. But what will be different is the fuel economy rating that the LaCrosse is expected to generate: 8.01/100 km in the city and 5.4 on the highway. Those numbers represent a significant 26 per cent improvement in city fuel economy and 16 per cent on the highway over the 2011 LaCrosse’s 10.8/6.5 city/highway rating.

The new eAssist technology will become standard equipment in all four-cylinder-equipped LaCrosses without, according to Buick, adding a premium for it.

DRIVE@METRONEWS.CA WHEELBASE MEDIA

Seekers of fuel-efficient mid- and full-size luxury sedans have had little choice but to shell out a hefty premium demanded by Lexus, BMW and Mercedes-Benz for a luxury gaselectric hybrid model. That’s about to change later this year when General Motors’ Buick division rolls out its 2012 LaCrosse equipped with the eAssist system. As the name implies, eAssist is an electrified helper motor that doesn’t independently power the car, but kicks in when the LaCrosse is accelerating or heading up hill. But that’s only part of the story, so much so that GM avoids using the term “hybrid” when referencing

this technology. Without getting overly geeky, eAssist begins with a 15-horsepower liquidcooled electric motor-generator that replaces the LaCrosse’s traditional alternator. Beyond providing power enrichment for the 182-horsepower 2.4-litre four-cylinder gas engine when needed, the generator also automatically shuts it down anytime the car comes to a stop, then instantly fires the engine up again when the driver takes his or her foot off the brake. In addition, eAssist cuts off the gas engine’s fuel supply whenever the LaCrosse is decelerating, while at the same time maintaining necessary power to the car’s braking, steering and other electronic controls. Pretty slick stuff.

Base price: $42,900 Well-appointed Toyota Prius-based model not for the performance-minded.

Engine (hp): 2.4-litre DOHC I4 (182) combined with 15horsepower electric motor. Transmission: Six-speed automatic. Market position: The eAssist LaCrosse takes on traditional luxury hybrids with its combination of excellent fuel economy, at a selling price that’s expected to vary little, if at all, from its previous gas-engine-only drivetrain. Mileage: L/100 km (city/hwy) 8.0/5.4.

TESLA TAKES ON QUASI MAINSTREAM

Top Gear

Tesla, maker of all-electric vehicles, is going mainstream — or at least to Tesla’s version of mainstream. California-based Tesla arrived on the Canadian automotive landscape last year, with one model — the Roadster, a little allelectric ditty offering lots of get-up-and-go, and lots of exclusivity with its starting price of $125,000. By next summer, Tesla will have another model — the Model S. A $57,400 luxury-sports sedan that will seat 5, or 7 with the optional rear-facing child seats. By 2013 we can expect Model X (a tall wagon or SUV kind of thing), and sometime after that, another sedan (a BMW 3 Series competitor kind of thing). Tesla is determined to build and sell about 100,000 vehicles a year, which is more or less capacity of the formerToyota plant (in Fremont, California) that Tesla took over last year.

The upcoming Model S. and future sale tactics expected from Tesla are almost — but not quite — a move toward mainstream.

This sounds like mainstream volume, but don’t be fooled. Tesla isn’t interested in anything mainstream. The technology of the cars isn’t mainstream, and either is how it intends to market and sell and service its growing volume. We caught up with Tesla’s main man in Canada, Hans Ulsrud in Toronto. While the Model S concept looks pretty fetching, Ulsrud assured me that the production car “looks even better.” Tesla Canada’s first sales facility will be located in Toronto later this year, but don’t go looking for it where dealerships usually congregate, like in those big, sprawling “auto malls” just outside the city. Ulsrud said the showroom will be in one of the premier shopping malls in the GTA. And for

style and feel, he said, “Think Apple Store…” The same sales executive behind Apple’s infiltration into the malls is behind Tesla’s retail strategy — George Blankenship. Tesla Santana Row was the first such store (San Francisco), followed by Tesla Park Meadows is the second (Glendale, Colorado). This calls for separate service facilities. Toronto’s service facility opened just this week, near the airport. Tesla Service also does house calls. According to Ulsrud, other key Canadian cities for Tesla are Montreal, Calgary and Vancouver. (All around late 2012, or early 2013.) You can now reserve a Model S, with a (refundable) deposit. The first 2,000 will be special “Signature” editions. Ulsrud noted that half of the 200 Signature models

Compass with manual gearbox will be the safest bet

mission, or a bucking or “jerking” sensation when decelerating, could be signs of trouble. Opt for a manual-equipped model where possible. Finally, check the ceiling liner around the map lights, as well as carpeting in the front footwells for signs of moisture — which could indicate a leaky sunroof or drain tubes.

What’s the 4-1-1 Model: 2007 to 2010 Jeep Compass. Vehicle type: Compact crossover/4x4.

JUSTIN PRITCHARD

DRIVE@METRONEWS.CA

Though the Jeep Compass wasn’t a diehard mudslinger like its siblings, it intended to attract a new buyer to the brand with its fuel efficiency, city-friendly sizing and promise of affordable adventure. All models got standard four-cylinder power and front wheel drive. The larger, 2.4-litre, 172 horsepower engine is typically preferred. Compass could be fitted with an “intelligent” AWD system that featured a driver-lockable centre differential for enhanced trac-

tion. Transmission choices were a manual five-speed box or a Continually Variable Transmission (CVT). Look for features like heated seats, Bluetooth, premium audio, a sunroof and multimedia connectivity. A household power outlet was also available, and split-folding seats enhanced cargo capacity when required. Sizing was in the same ballpark as a Toyota Matrix, Dodge Caliber or Mazda 3.

ciency and versatility moved the Compass from dealer lots more than offroad prowess, though Compass was capable of light to moderate off-road work as needed. What owners like

Manoeuvrability, flexibility, all-season traction with 4x4 models and styling, all seem to be rated positively by the majority of Compass owners. Car-like ride quality, the up-level stereo and fuel mileage were also

The verdict

praised. What owners dislike

Owner-stated complaints tend to centre around cheap interior plastics, sluggish performance from models with the CVT transmission, road noise, blind spots and limited ground clearance and off-road abilities. Common issues

When test-driving a used Compass, “listen” to the vehicle’s front end for signs of clunking, popping or grind-

ing sounds while steering or travelling over bumps. Unwelcome noises could indicate a worn-out suspension component, and numerous owners have reported premature wear of these parts. Driveability issues with the CVT transmission, including reduced or sluggish acceleration, could be a computer-related problem fixed by rebooting or re-flashing the vehicle’s computer brain. Grinding sounds from the CVT trans-

Low resale values, good mileage and family-ready versatility will be the primary draws to the Jeep Compass in the used market. Shoppers seeking out a model with a manual transmission and a clean bill of health from a Chryslertrained mechanic should enjoy fairly solid reliability and affordable all-season driving confidence.

Putting more Sport into a sporty car PORSCHE

Many cars have ‘Eco’ buttons to help maximize fuel economy

to push the “Sport” button on the console. Depending on the vehicle, activating the button might increase the steering resistance, change the throttle response or the transmission’s shift patterns, adjust the shock absorbers or vary the exhaust. “Our cars have numerous options and it depends on what is fitted to the car,”

holding each gear longer, keeping the engine at higher r.p.m., and locking out the higher, fuel-efficient gears — the reason cars use more fuel in Sport mode. Finally, if it’s a Porsche equipped with a special “sport” exhaust, there’s one more benefit. “It will open a flap in the exhaust to make it louder,” Yap says. “It doesn’t give you any more power, but it makes it louder.” And to a sports car fan, that definitely makes it better.
