A ‘bigger and better’ Stampede this year The Calgary Stampede begins Friday and goes on until July 17 New midway foods to watch out for this year include the pulled-pork parfait and the glazed doughnut burger KATIE TURNER

With more deep-fried deliciousness, plenty of cowboy attire and even a human cannonball, this year’s Calgary Stampede is set to be bigger and better than ever. “Every year we try to put on the Greatest Outdoor Show on

Earth, and every year we try to add things to make it bigger and better,” said Jennifer Booth of the Stampede. Booth said the royal couple’s visit helped to make this year even more special but that next year’s centennial celebration will be even more grand. “This year will be the best and then next year even better!”

At least one Calgarian can’t wait to throw on her boots for the next 10 days. “I’m the hugest fan,” said Julie Kwinter. “Last year my goal was to go out every single night until midnight — and I made it. But this year my goal, the only thing I hadn’t done, was be in the parade, and this year I’m going to

be in the parade,” she said, adding she’s riding on the Mount Royal Centennial float. Kwinter said her hopes for this year’s Stampede festivities are simple. “I hope the weather is great ... and I hope that I don’t get too sick of beer in a can.” More coverage {pages 2 and 4} CONTRIBUTED

Hotels see a royal spike in bookings July in Calgary means Stampede. For hotels it means no vacancy. The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth draws thousands to the city. The royal visit has added to that pandemonium. “It’s wonderful that the royal couple are visiting and it also has lead to a greater volume of guests. Especially on the two days leading up to Stampede,� said James Tingley, general manager of the Delta Bow Valley in downtown. “We are basically sold out,� he added. The Fairmont Palliser has seen a 10 per cent growth in sales over last year’s Stampede, according to communications manager Jessica Reynolds. Reynolds could not confirm that the royals were staying at the Palliser, but the Royal Suite has been recently renovated to the tune of $15,000 to $20,000, Metro reported in June. In most years, according to Tourism Calgary CEO Randy Williams, the Stampede adds over $100 million to Calgary’s economy. This year he expects growth above five per cent. “The Royals have helped people decide that they indeed want to go to the Stampede,� he added. TODD VAUGHAN

The Duchess of Cambridge greets six-year-old Diamond Marshall in Calgary Thursday.

William and Kate touch down in Cowtown Royals fulfil wish of six-year-old cancer patient, don cowboy hats later Busy itinerary, including Stampede, before tour ends Fri. There were a few grumbles among Calgarians on Thursday when Prince William and Kate initially appeared to pass on a decades-old tradition, but for others it was hats off to the royals for fulfilling the wish of a sick little girl. With winds gusting, the couple did not immediately don the cowboy hats presented to them by Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi upon their arrival in the city — a

60-year-old ceremony called “white hatting.� Instead, the Duchess of Cambridge quickly turned her attention to Diamond Marshall, a six-year-old girl decked out in a pretty pink dress with a matching band encircling her bald head. Diagnosed with from Stage 4 undifferentiated sarcoma last December, Diamond had two life-saving surgeries in recent months and had spent nearly a

month in intensive care. The youngster’s biggest wish was to one day meet a “real princess.� She had written Kate a note from the hospital bed where she watched the royal wedding earlier this year, and the Children’s Wish Foundation went to work. The Duke and Duchess wrap up their nine-day Canadian visit on Friday, when they are to open the Stampede parade, visit the

zoo, meet homeless youth, attend an Alberta government reception and lay a wreath before leaving Canada and heading to Los Angeles. Later, while attending a rodeo demonstration the couple emerged before the crowd wearing their custom-made, white Smithbilt hats, which are considered Calgary’s version of the key to the city.

Did you know ... Lego was invented in Denmark? This is just one of the several things Calgarians can learn from the Calgary Stampede Parade as the floats roll by. Jens Laursen of the Danish Canadian Club has been making floats for the parade for three years, and he says the blueprints for this year’s float are unique. “We used actual Lego to design our Lego float,” he said. The Danish float was built by 11 members of the club over a two-month span. Brick by brick, friendships were forged and reaffirmed over that period. “It’s the social aspect. You really get to know someone when you work on a project,” Laursen said. This is the 40th float that the Danish Club has built since 1967. Another float designer who knows a thing or two about building is Mike Rezansoff, manager of Building Trades of Alberta Southern. He says the parade is a great way to create awareness of all the opportunities in the field. “We can contribute to the community and also

encourage people to choose a trade as a career choice,” he said. The Builders float features miniature replicas of a 19th-century Calgary building, a mid-century brick building and a larger version of Calgary’s own Bow Building. The Danish Club also wants to raise awareness. “The parade is great for tourism, and hopefully we can encourage new members to join us,” Laursen said.

Stampede city The Calgary Stampede Parade kicks off Friday morning with a pre-show at 7:30 a.m. The parade itself starts at 8:55. The parade is expected to attract 400,000 people. Marching side by side will be more than 750 horses and 3,000 people with 167 entries. Animals will produce 10 tonnes of manure. The parade takes two hours to pass any one point on the route. The first Calgary Stampede Parade took place on Labour Day, 1912. Today it is the secondlargest in North America, after the Rose Bowl parade in Pasadena, Calif.

Jens Laursen of the Danish Canadian Club is one of 3,000 people marching this year. The club’s float is made from one of Denmark’s greatest gifts to the world — Lego.

Determined Filipino family ignores skeptics to succeed in Canada When Erick Alfonso meets immigrants who feel overwhelmed, he gives them hope by telling his own family’s story. In fact, the Manila native and his wife achieved personal success in a remarkably short time, by ignoring skeptics who scoffed at their Canadian dreams.

Erick also gives pep talks on job searches, based on his experience and that of his wife’s, Maria Rosario, who within a year moved from a temporary accounting job to accounting manager with a local ďŹ rm.

“We didn’t do anything special, but we were determined. By believing in ourselves and supporting each other, we got through each difďŹ culty,â€? says Erick. “It is possible‌ If you show what you can do, you can build the right connections and open the door to a new life in “They told us that you need Canadian experience Canada.â€? to find a job,â€? recalls the former IT project THIS ADVERTORIAL IS PREPARED BY SCOTIABANK. manager at a Philippine bank. “But we decided to try because we knew it was a good country to raise our kids.â€? Now working as a Manager of Customer Service at Scotiabank in Calgary, Alberta, Erick remembers how friends discouraged them from migrating to Canada with their ďŹ ve young children.

Now established as a Scotiabank Manager, Erick Alfonso welcomes other new Canadians to his branch.

Upon arrival in Canada in 2006, the Alfonsos discovered that many Filipino compatriots were juggling low paying jobs to survive. While Erick also took a temporary factory job to pay the bills, he refused to give up hope. “A friend told me to open my ďŹ rst bank account at Scotiabank, and the teller was so helpful that I decided to submit my resumĂŠ,â€? recounts Erick. To his amazement, the branch manager hired him within a month as a casual teller, and two months later, gave him a full-time customer support role. “I was lucky that Scotiabank gave me the chance to prove myself,â€? notes Erick, who has risen through the ranks and now serves many Asian customers at Calgary’s Castleridge Centre Branch. “I can relate to them because I remember arriving with no bank account and no permanent address. The Scotiabanker explained everything to me, and I try to do the same for others today.â€? For example, Erick recommends the Scotiabank StartRight Program for Newcomers, which includes a free day-to-day bank account for one year , a wide range of VISA card options and a number of other customized services and benefits. He also provides plenty of ďŹ rst-hand ďŹ nancial advice. ÂŽ

“Since many newcomers arrive with personal savings, I help them invest their savings wisely, including short-term investments such as a TaxFree Savings Account (TFSA), which lets them earn tax-free income that they can access later for other needs,� says Erick. He also explains the importance of building a Canadian credit history. “Some newcomers are afraid to use credit cards, but I tell them how it can help them achieve other goals if they use it responsibly.�

YOU’LL LOVE OUR PARADE, WILLS IN DEFENCE OF ... MIKE MORRISON METRO CALGARY

The Calgary Stampede parade is a time-honoured tradition that sees hundreds of thousands of people descend upon the typically deserted streets of downtown Calgary. While you’d probably think that I would find the Calgary Stampede parade annoying, it’s quite the opposite. I love the parade! I’m actually a big fan of all parades in general. That’s why I drive northbound Deerfoot in afternoon rush hour, If you turn your music up really loud and start waving, you can pretend you’re in your own special parade — the

“I love the parade! I’m actually a big fan of all parades. That’s why I drive northbound Deerfoot in afternoon rush hour. If you turn your music up really loud and start waving, you can pretend you’re in your own special parade — the traffic goes at about the same speed.” traffic goes at about the same speed. Plus, ever since our Santa Claus parade was put on unofficial hiatus, the Stampede parade is pretty much all we’ve got. The parade is a great opportunity to get yourself prepared for the actual Stampede. Looking around at the crowds, you’ll probably see the variety of people you’ll be dealing with over the next 10 days. Chances are you can see the parents who think the parade is specifically for their kids and their kids only. There are the tourists who bought every tacky piece of Canadiana at that random tourist shop on

Stephen Avenue. And then there are the Calgarians whose homes become like a crowded motel every July, packed with friends, cousins and long-lost family members who just happen to visit you during the Stampede … but only if you live close enough to the grounds. This is perhaps the most difficult group to spot, but look for the excessive nodding and picture taking — caused by the effort to pretend they haven’t already seen the parade 12 times. Of course, this year’s Stampede is a little different, thanks to a certain duo who’ll be gracing us with their presence. No,

not Nenshi and his extremely affectionate sister, but the royal couple. (Wills and Kate, if you’re reading this, you should add me to Twitter: @mikesbloggity.) Since their visit isn’t packed with the most exciting itinerary, the parade will definitely be a highlight for them. Maybe the multi-generational group of Stampede Princesses can teach Kate a thing or two about waving, while I talk to the future king about going bald gracefully. While a few hours of being slightly splashed by horse urine may be not appeal to everyone, I am not one of those people. The Stampede parade really is for every Calgarian, but just maybe not for the same reasons. Mike Morrison is the perfectly bald head behind Mike’s Bloggity Blog. He also tweets regularly from @mikesbloggity.

Parents now have a new tool in their hunt for daycare in Alberta. The province upgraded its website Thursday, adding a “look-up tool” for inspection reports for licensed child-care and contracted day homes provincewide. Calgary dad Shane Byciuk and his wife plan to put their 18-month-old Kyron in daycare this fall. “I think it would be a great tool. The thing is a lot of the day homes aren’t regulated, though,” Byciuk said. INSECT OUTLOOK

The number of months records go back on the province’s child-care ‘look-up tool.’ He said he hopes it will also improve daycare standards. “I would never put my kid into a unlicensed or unverified daycare because you just don't know what you’re getting,” he explained. “If they’re checking them out and there is history, I think that’s a great thing.” Complaints, visit dates, past actions taken against killed off a large number of pine beetles, this year’s temperatures let many more survive. Southwestern Alberta’s beetle population was the lowest in the province and continued to decline from last year. Pine beetles have already destroyed portions of forests in British Columbia and Alberta. The province has spent more than $300 million in less than 10 years to try and control the beetles. METRO

facilities and timelines for dealing with issues are among details found on the site. But it’s still a drop in the bucket of what’s needed, argued NDP MLA Rachel Notley. “I think it’s an ever-so-modest improvement but it doesn’t get to the heart of the challenges facing young families,” said Notley. She said the shortage of affordable, licensed options leaves many settling for less. Parents can search the site at child.alberta.ca by name, program type, postal code or kids’ age.

Man with machete holds kindergartners hostage for six fearful hours A man carrying a machete barged into a Malaysian kindergarten and held children and teachers hostage for six tense hours Thursday. The man threatened to kill the children unless he was given a gun, police said. The children were heard singing in what was believed to be an attempt to calm the man. Finally, police shot him in the head. The 30 children and four teachers were not harmed, officers said.

Anthony to be freed Sentencing comes 3 years after her daughter was reported missing

Authorities in Florida say Casey Anthony will be freed July 17, not Wednesday as previously announced, based on a recalculation of the time she has served. The 25-year-old Anthony was acquitted by a jury Tuesday of killing her twoyear-old daughter, Caylee, punctuating a case that captured Americans and bitterly divided many over

whether she got away with murder. Judge Belvin Perry gave her the maximum sentence of four years for four convictions of lying to authorities. He denied a defence request to combine the misdemeanour counts, which could have made her eligible for immediate release. Anthony was given credit for the time she has

already served and her good behaviour. Judge Belvin Perry also fined her $1,000 US on each of the four counts. Before her sentence was announced, the 25-yearold Anthony was animated, smiling and occasionally played with her hair, which was let down for the first time since her trial began in late May.

Insanity verdict for ‘zombie’ stabbing A teenager from Canada who allegedly stabbed to death a 21-year-old man in Glasgow after hearing voices saying the man was a zombie who was going to attack him, has been found not guilty of murder by reason of insanity. Scottish media reports say a jury at the High Court

in Glasgow cleared 19-yearold Tianhui Zhan of murdering Michael Davis on Oct. 13, 2010. Davis had just finished work and was on his way to a second job when Zhan allegedly stabbed him three times. He underwent surgery but died the next day. The court heard that Zhan, who is of Chinese origin but lives in Canada, travelled to Glasgow after hearing voices saying he should go there. He is receiving treatment for paranoid schizophrenia. THE CANADIAN PRESS

The Dalai Lama and House Speaker John Boehner leave a news conference on Capitol Hill in Washington Thursday.

Dalai Lama unites U.S. politicians Democrats, Republicans greet spiritual leader China complains about the official reception In a rare show of unity, U.S. Republican and Democratic leaders found a cause to rally around Thursday: their support for the Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama. The Nobel Peace laureate arrived in Washington this week for an 11-day Buddhist ritual and was invited to the Capitol to meet with leaders of the House of Representatives. His visit already has drawn criticism from ChiYELLOWSTONE

Park won’t capture killer bear Yellowstone National Park authorities will not try to capture a female grizzly bear that killed a backcountry hiker because the bruin was trying to defend its cubs when it was surprised by the man, a spokesman said Thursday. The mauling of Brian Matayoshi, 57, was a

na, which regards the Dalai Lama as a separatist troublemaker and bristles at any official recognition of the exiled Tibetan leader. The White House has yet to announce whether he will meet with U.S. President Barack Obama as he did, albeit in lowkey fashion, on his last visit in February 2010. The Dalai Lama recently gave up his leadership of Tibet’s government-inexile. Beijing accuses him

of seeking Tibet’s independence from China. The Dalai Lama remains the spiritual leader of Tibetan Buddhism. Thousands of expatriate Tibetans will seek his blessing during his current stay in Washington, his longest visit yet to the U.S. capital. Lawmakers of both parties have called for the Dalai Lama to be received at the White House.

purely defensive act, park spokesman Al Nash said, adding that Yellowstone typically does not try to capture or remove a bear in what he called “a wildlife incident.” It was the first fatal grizzly attack inside the park in 25 years — but the third in the Yellowstone region in just over a year. The attack occurred on Wednesday about two kilometres up a popular backcountry trail and not far from an area that is one of the park’s top attractions.

Home prices may have reached peak: Experts Home prices continue to push to new post-recession highs, but experts worry that recent increases may be concealing signs of a substantial decline. Statistics Canada’s new housing price index rose 0.4 per cent in May from April. Year-over-year, the index was up 1.9 per cent from May 2010, following an identical increase in April. Meanwhile, a Royal LePage house price survey and market forecast found that Canada’s residential real estate market saw sizable year-over-year price increases in the second quarter. The price hikes were evident across all housing types surveyed, with the national average price of a detached bungalow ris-

ing the most — 7.5 per cent year-over-year to $356,625. A standard two-storey home rose 6.1 per cent to $390,163 and the price of a standard condominium 3.5 per cent to $238,064. “In many of Canada’s regional markets, we saw house prices appreciate at a significantly faster rate than wages and salaries, and this trend cannot continue indefinitely,� said Phil Soper, president and chief executive at Royal LePage. “We expect price gains to moderate considerably in the latter half of 2011, which should reduce the stress associated with purchasing a new home,� Soper said. Royal LePage said signs of moderation, although they vary from region to region, are beginning to

become apparent and the average price of a home is expected to end the year 7.7 per cent higher than at the end of 2010. Sales volume nationally is forecast to decrease by two per cent over the same period. Economist David Madani at Capital Economics said the Royal LePage report underscores some of the concerns he has about the state of Canada’s housing market, as price barometers from several sources indicate price increases are out of step with market activity. The Canadian Real Estate Association found the national average price in May gained 8.6 per cent to $376,817 and the most recent data from the Teranet index showed prices were up 4.4 per in April.

Obama declares U.S. debt crisis

U.S. President Barack Obama meets with congressional leadership in the White House on Thursday to discuss the country’s debt. From left are House Majority Leader Eric Cantor of Va., House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of Calif., House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio and the president.

President Barack Obama declared a debt-crisis session Thursday with congressional leaders “very constructive� but said the parties were still far apart in their attempts to avert a first ever default of U.S. financial obligations. He said he would reconvene the negotiators on Sunday. Thursday’s meeting came amid signals the White House was willing to cut spending on major benefit programs for the

elderly, while Republicans indicated they might consider new steps to raise revenue. Such a compromise could leave both parties upsetting their political bases ahead of next year’s congressional and presidential elections. Democrats are already campaigning as defenders of social programs while Republicans oppose any tax increases. The White House has also said the president is

aiming for deficit reduction closer to $4 trillion over 10 years — an ambitious number that would nearly double the roughly $2 trillion that had been at the centre of negotiations. Raising the U.S. debt ceiling is usually little more than a formality but Republicans who control the House of Representatives say they won’t go along without major spending cuts.

Rupert and Wendi Murdoch arrive for the 2011 Allen and Co. Sun Valley Conference on Thursday in Idaho. News Corp. announced it is shutting down the News of the World.

Murdoch axes News of the World Paper accused of bribing sources and phone hacking

The Murdoch media empire unexpectedly jettisoned the News of the World Thursday after a public backlash over the illegal guerrilla tactics it used to expose the rich, the famous and the royal to remain Britain’s bestselling Sunday newspaper. The decision stunned the paper’s staff of 200 and ignited speculation that Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp. plans to rebrand the tabloid to help salvage a bid for a lucrative TV deal. “This Sunday will be the last issue of the News of the World,” James Mur-

doch, son of the media magnate, announced in a memo. Allegations of immoral and criminal behaviour at the paper — including bribing police officers, hacking into the voice mail of murdered schoolgirls’ families and targeting the phones of the relatives of soldiers killed in Afghanistan and the victims of the London transit attacks — cast a cloud over News Corp.’s plan to take ownership of British Sky Broadcasting. Faced with growing outrage, Murdoch stopped the

presses on the 168-year-old paper, whose lurid scoops have ranged from Sarah Ferguson’s claims she could provide access to exhusband Prince Andrew to motor-racing chief Max Mosley’s penchant for sadomasochism. The paper has been losing advertisers since the phone-hacking scandal escalated this week, with Ford and Vauxhall, J. Sainsbury and Boots pulling out, among others. Police are examining 4,000 names of people possibly targeted by the tabloid. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Cartoon by Michael de Adder Worth mentioning BENGHAZI, Libya.

Moammar Gadhafi is loved in Libya’s rebel capital — as a subject for street artists to mock. Caricatures of the Libyan leader dot walls and buildings across Benghazi in renderings that range from crude sketches to elaborate satire such as Gadhafi being knocked around by a rebel-flagged boot or depicted with a Nazi swastika. Before Libya’s uprising, even a hint of dissent risked a crushing response from Gadhafi’s security forces. Now, it’s open season on Gadhafi in rebel-held territory. For some aspiring cartoonists — and others wanting to make their mark — this means getting out their spray paints and markers to display their opposition. Rida, a 35-year-old barber and interior designer before the rebellion, makes dozens of Gadhafi sketches each day. Some have shown him in a trash can or with his clothes blown off by a U.S. jet fighter. “I cannot fight with arms, but I can kill him with my pencil,” said Rida.

WEIRD NEWS

Can you teach the same dog new tricks? A dog that went missing seven years ago will be reunited with her original owner after living for all that time with another family in the same Arkansas town. Andrew Navarette told animal control officers that he let his Shih Tzu, Mimi, out in the backyard of his Rogers, Ark., home seven years ago, but when he went to retrieve her she had disappeared, the Rogers Morning

News reported Thursday. Navarette was unable to track Mimi down, even though she had a microchip containing his contact information. Some time later, Kim Rafter of Rogers acquired the animal from someone in good faith, renamed her Gizmo, and has cared for her ever since. Meanwhile, Navarette relocated to Woodlake, Calif. Last Saturday, Mimi showed up at an animal shelter in Rogers where officials found the chip and called Navarette, who had kept the same cellphone number. Assistant shelter manager Matt Colston said Navarette was excited Mimi had been found and said he would pay for the Shih Tzu to be shipped to his home in California. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Charlie Day, Jason Sudeikis and Jason Bateman in Horrible Bosses.

Bosses delivers the goods Richard Crouse and Phil Brown agree the premise of Horrible Bosses is a bit tired Despite that, it’s a funny movie that induces pants-wetting laughs

SCENE@METRONEWS.CA

Movie writer Phil Brown is sitting in for Mark Breslin this week. Richard Crouse: Phil, of course no reasonable person would break into their bosses homes looking for ways to kill them, but this is a comedy so we’ll accept that. Or will we? I thought the movie started off strong, funny and well paced, but its central premise — let’s kill our bosses! — seems forced and it sucks some of the funny from the middle part of the movie. What did you think? Phil Brown: Richard, I’ve got to go the other way. The premise of having a terrible boss that makes

your life hell is sadly all too relatable for many, but the opening bad boss gags felt tired even with the R-rated facelift. It didn’t click for me until the murder element turned the movie into a live action cartoon with a sick sense of humour. RC: Interesting, I felt as though I was watching a funny enough movie marred by a silly premise. It’s one thing to have some drinks and joke about killing your boss, it’s quite another to act on it. I don’t want to beleaguer this point, but the crucial setup scene to me felt forced, like a weak lead in to a funny punch line. Having said that, Charlie Day

made me laugh. A lot. PB: The whole premise is old and they even namedropped two movies that did it better (Strangers On A Train and Throw Mamma From The Train). I think we can both agree that things really got rolling in the second half when it deviated from that form. Charlie Day definitely induces pants-wetting laughter consistently and I think the cast made this movie work through an improvisation festival. The only problem is that comedy style kills narrative momentum and there was no real tension in the thriller aspect of the story. Though I suppose the laughs are more important.

RC: And there are plenty of laughs. I don’t want to be Debbie Downer here. The movie is funny. It was cool to see Kevin Spacey revive his character Buddy from Swimming with Sharks, and if this doesn’t wipe away any traces of Rachel left over from Jennifer Aniston’s TV work I don’t know what will. Now, I guess, she’s America’s Foul Mouthed Over Sexed Sweetheart. PB: In my mind, she always will be. Despite the inconsistencies, Horrible Bosses delivers the goods and will always be the only movie featuring Colin Farrell doing a coked-up Michael Keaton impression with a comb-over.

A Pooh for a new century

HANDOUT

Disney gives Winnie the Pooh a more contemporary feel, yet stays true to the classic charm of the original RICHARD CROUSE

SCENE@METRONEWS.CA

Winnie the Pooh has Canadian roots. The beloved A.A. Milne creation, a potbellied bear with a taste for “hunny,” was based on a real-life Canadian black bear that lived at the London Zoo. Brought to the zoo by Lieutenant Harry Colebourn during the First World War, the bear was named Winnie after the soldier’s hometown of Winnipeg. It’s fitting, then, that the new Disney Winnie the Pooh movie had many Canadians help bring it to the screen. “It’s like winning the lottery having worked here,” says Alberta native

Brian Ferguson of his 21 years working at the House of Mouse. His first job after joining the company was animating the company’s mascot in Mickey Mouse’s Prince and the Pauper. “It’s such a simple design,” he says, “but if you get a pencil thickness off in the proportions, it looks wrong.” That’s a lesson he took with him when drawing the classic characters in Winnie the Pooh. “The people who did the first Winnie the Poohs were masters and the stuff they did then, wow,” he says. “Even as an experienced animator I look at it and go, ‘Oh my goodness, I wouldn’t have thought of that.’ It’s subtle little things that make a character be

just a little away from normal. It’s the subtle difference between, ‘I would never have done it that way,’ to ‘I would never have thought to do it that way.’” Nik Ranieri, a Torontonian with 23 years at the studio, adds that while the classic look of Winnie the Pooh has been maintained in the movie, efforts have been made to update the feel of the film. “When I watch the film there are some things in there I don’t think you’d see in the old ones,” he says. “Look at the character of Rabbit. Some of those poses and expressions are a little more manic, but it doesn’t take away from the charm of the original. It just adds a little bit of contemporary

Disney’s Winnie the Pooh

feel to it.” For Vancouverite Clio Change, Winnie the Pooh marks a landmark — it’s her first Disney film. “I think I was four when I

told my dad I wanted to work here,” she says. “He said, ‘OK, you can sell Coke in the parks in a mouse suit.’ Luckily it was animation instead.”

When I ask her if all the Disney Canucks have their own table in the cafeteria she nods and laughs, “We eat maple cookies and drink syrup.”

Captain America keeps his name Captain America will keep its patriotic title in most of the world when the superhero adventure hits the big screen. Paramount Pictures and Marvel Studios gave distributors around the world the option of shortening the title of Captain America: The First Avenger to simply The First Avenger, out of concern about antiAmerican sentiment. But the only countries that took them up on it were Russia, Ukraine and South Korea. In other territories, the movie will go out with the full title, a sign that the brand value of the Marvel Comics hero trumps any potential anti-U.S. feelings in some parts of the world. Movie titles often are changed in foreign coun-

tries for cultural reasons or because the original names don’t translate well. Starring Chris Evans as

the patriotic super-soldier, Captain America opens in U.S. theatres July 22.

Kevin James wanted to make a family movie — one that would be stupendously inoffensive. He has managed to do that with talking animals in way — amazingly — that isn’t actually as boneheaded as the premise sounds. As a man passionate about his zookeeping job, James’ character gets ad-

vice from his talking animals (voiced by the likes of Nick Nolte and Cher) on how to win back an ex. It’s goofy, obvious, contrived and corny (there is a trip to TGI Friday’s with a dancing gorilla, after all), but the humour is silly enough to amuse kids without resorting to toilet humour or sleaze for the adults. With this box of chocolates, you know exactly what you’re going to get, and that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. HEIDI PATALANO

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Music video guru and Thumbsucker director Mike Mills exorcizes some demons from his father’s death with this sweetly melancholic autobiographical comedy. Ewen McGregor plays Mills and Christopher Plummer plays his father who came out of the closet at 75 before dying of cancer shortly thereafter. There’s also a painfully realistic love story between the broken character played by McGregor and an equally damaged actress played by Melanie Laurent. It’s a movie about life, loss and finding love despite neurosis and depression. PHIL BROWN

WEEKEND, JULY 8-10, 2011

With the final Harry Potter movie hitting theatres next week, Metro takes a look at life after a decade of Hogwarts

A Potter post-mortem COURTESY WARNER BROS

We take a stab at writing book 8 everal years after the fall of Voldemort — and the flight of the remaining Death Eaters to Brazil — newly Certified Public Accountant Harold J. Potter has finally started to settle down into a normal, almost Muggle-ish life. He and his new bride Ginny Weasley, flush with excitement over the birth of their first son James Sirius Potter, now battled nothing more sinister than the occasional dirty, levitating diaper. It seemed as though peace and contentment had finally come to Harold and his friends. That is until, one day, Harold was sent on a business trip to the Ministry of Magic. There he was informed that, through a complicated series of risky dragon scale default swaps and unregulated wand sales to nonmagical beings, the very economic foundation of their magical world was in jeopardy. And worse, it was revealed to Harold that the new Minister of Magic — Harold’s old Quidditch teammate Oliver Wood — had just been found brutally murdered in a Slytherin dormitory at Hogwarts. Upon hearing the news, Harold’s thoughts immediately turned to Voldemort, the only being capable of such effortless cruelty. But then the terrified Ministers told Harold the name that had been scratched into the skin of poor Oliver, and Harold knew that he faced a new enemy. The name scratched into Wood’s body, the ministers told Harry, was...Mrs. Norris. DREW TOAL

S

Wands out one last time: Daniel Radcliffe in a scene from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2.

What’s the next big series? The Hunger Games Premise: Every year, one boy and one girl must fight to the death in a televised event, brought to you by the Capitol, the evil government in charge of the land of Panem. The movies: The first is filming now. Jennifer Lawrence, Oscar-nominee, will play our hero, Katniss Everdeen. Chances of it taking off: High. It’s not corny, but clever.

What’s next for the Potter stars? Daniel Radcliffe (Harry) Currently singing and dancing in the Broadway musical How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, the 21-year-old earned rave reviews, even if the production itself didn’t. People want to like him and he wants to be liked. That said, The Woman in Black, a moody ghost story due next year, doesn’t look like a blockbuster. Chances of future success: 4 out of 5 wands

Emma Watson (Hermione) Snow White and the Huntsman Premise: Inspired by Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, the plot finds our heroine cast out by a wicked witch, and ordered to die at the hands of a hunter. Then she meets midgets. It’s the first of a planned series. The movies: Kristen Stewart leaves one franchise for another, playing a tough version of Snow White. Chances of it taking off: Fair. Do young audiences really care about classic fairy tales?

Already a fashion magazine staple, Watson has left the genre ghetto for trendy indies. She’s just finished filming The Perks of Being a Wallflower, a comedy co-starring Paul Rudd, and will star opposite Michelle Williams in My Week with Marilyn, about Marilyn Monroe. Sadly, she won’t have a college degree to fall back on — Watson left Brown University last fall before graduating. Chances of success: 5 out of 5 wands

Rupert Grint (Ron) Percy Jackson and the Olympians Premise: A kid discovers his dad is the Greek god Poseidon — and mythological creatures are on the attack. Rick Riordan’s series has five books so far. The movies: The first — subtitled The Lightning Thief and directed by Potter vet Chris Columbus — was released last year. The second is in the planning stages. Chances of it taking off: Despite a lack of buzz, the first film made more than $200 million worldwide. The Hobbit Premise: The prequel to Lord of the Rings finds Bilbo Baggins battling orcs and spiders to save a kingdom. The movies: Director Peter Jackson is back. Ian McKellan is back. Orlando Bloom is back. Gollum is back. And The Office star Martin Freeman stars. Chances of it taking off: Men are weak. The Blood of Numenor is all but spent. But this movie will be a massive success. SAM CASTONE

Is he ambitious, or just a stoner? Either way, Ron will continue to do what he did in between Potters: make likeable movies that no one will see, including the war drama Comrade and Eddie the Eagle, about the U.K.’s first Olympic ski jumper. Chances of success: 3 out of 5 wands

Tom Felton (Draco) He can die saying he starred in Harry Potter and was Emma Watson’s first on-set crush; what more does Felton need to do? His choice: Getting attacked by primates in Ride of the Planet of the Apes, out this August. Chances of success: 2 out of 5 wands

Alan Rickman (Snape) He’s always chasing Harry Potter — now all the way to Broadway. Rickman will star in The Seminar, a new play, this fall. Chances of success: How dare you ask? After Die Hard, Potter and countless plays, the man’s a legend. Plus, we’re too scared to say ALL PHOTOS GETTY IMAGES otherwise. SAM CASTONE

Brent Butt, whose Vancouver-set sitcom Hiccups returned with new episodes at the end of May. “Maybe in the summer you get a chance to pop out a little more.”

The boys are back

The belief that most people cool down their viewing habits when the weather turns hot is not true, says Butt, convinced that a sizable number of couch-potatoes exist yearround. The fresh crop includes a new season of CTV’s Flashpoint, premiering on Friday. Film and TV star Paul Gross executive produces HBO Canada’s edgy satire The Yard, also debuting Friday, about the day-to-day struggle for supremacy between two schoolyard gangs. On Global, the song-anddance competition Canada Sings debuts Aug. 10, pitting workplace glee clubs against each other in front of judges Vanilla Ice, Jann Arden, and Simple Plan rocker Pierre Bouvier. Those are all on top of last month’s return of

The long-awaited Trailer Park Boys followup hits the air July 22 on Action, with Mike Smith, Robb Wells and JP Tremblay playing very loose versions of themselves. The Drunk And On Drugs Happy Funtime Hour centres on a fictional sketchvariety TV show that runs off the rails when the cast mistakenly ingests a powerful hallucinogen.

Dourdan busted for drugs CSI star Gary Dourdan was killed off that hit series and later arrested for drug possession in 2008. Now he’s in trouble again. After smashing into several parked cars back in June, the cops arrested him for — guess? — drug possession yet again, ac-

cording to TMZ, which has now identified the drug: OxyContin, the painkiller known as “hillbilly heroin” because it’s popular in the American south. Police did not indicate how much jail time he would be looking at.

Combining wine with anything but an empty glass has been called a lot of things — and not all of them pretty. It’s never bothered the Spanish. Their recipe for warm weather refreshment has survived for centuries as the popular red winebased, Mediterraneanmixer sangria.

A must-win for both sides Losers of Friday’s game will find themselves in a 0-2 hole to start the season JEFF MCINTOSH/THE CANADIAN PRESS

STAMPS

LIONS

4 sports

Time: 8:30 p.m., Friday TV: TSN

It’s routine for players to say every football game is important. Maybe what they mean is there are some losses a team really needs to avoid. It’s only the second week of the CFL season but already the B.C. Lions and Calgary Stampeders play a game where a loss could have ramifications down the road. The Lions and Stamps are both coming off defeats in the opening week of the season and don’t want to be 0-2 heading into week three. While getting back to .500 is important for the Lions, veteran cornerback Davis Sanchez likes the idea of putting Calgary in an early hole “It’s huge,” Sanchez said after the Lions went through a brief workout at their practice facility. “Calgary has already lost a game. If we can get them to 0-2 against us, it might mean a lot come November. It’s two teams that at the end of the day could be fighting for the West championship. It’s important to jump on them now.” Calgary lost 23-21 to the Toronto Argonauts last week at McMahon Stadium while B.C. fell 30-26 to the Alouettes in Montreal. The Lions gave up 20 second-quarter points to

the Als but battled back in the second half, outscoring Montreal 16-3. Sanchez said the Lions defence needs to start strong in the regular-season, home-opening game at Empire Field. “The offence played pretty well last week but we put them in a bad situation getting down early,” said Sanchez. “There is nothing from an X’s and O’s standpoint we are going to do differently. “We just have to come out with a little more energy and not be flat coming out of the gate, which I think we were last week.”

The Lions took some undisciplined penalties last week and quarterback Travis Lulay was the victim of several dropped passes. Lulay said what hurt the most was having drives stall, resulting in Paul McCallum field goals. “We need to score touchdowns when we get those opportunities down in the red zone,” said Lulay, who threw for 366 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions against the Als. “There was a couple of times we came away with field goals.” Wally Buono, the Lions

coach and general manager, expects a better performance from his team this week. “The thing about the early part of the season is you have to work through a lot of different issues,” said Buono, who leads all CFL coaches with 243 victories. “This has been a good week of practice for us.” During the week, Buono apologized to his players for a decision he made late in last week’s game. Trailing by seven points, and facing a thirdand-five, Buono decided to have McCallum kick a 38-

yard field goal instead of gambling or punting the ball deep. Montreal scrimmaged at its 35-yard line and ran out the remaining 1:42 to win the game. The decision has been criticized by callers to radio sports programs and in comments on the Internet. “I was wrong,” Buono said. “It’s a decision you make. “At the end of the day, you can’t be afraid to make a decision based on what criticism or praise you are going to get.” THE CANADIAN PRESS

DeLaet may miss Canadian Open with back injury Graham DeLaet is unsure if he’ll be able to compete on home soil at the RBC Canadian Open. After sitting out the first few months of the PGA Tour season recovering from back surgery, the 29year-old has returned to the sidelines with some stiffness and discomfort. It may keep him from playing the Canadian Open at Vancou-

ver’s Shaughnessy Golf and Country Club in three weeks. “I just love that golf course and the Canadian Open is obviously important to every Canadian, but I’m going to have to wait and see how I’m feeling,” DeLaet said on Thursday. A decision on his status probably won’t come until just before the July 21-24

tournament. DeLaet has played two amateur events at Shaughnessy in the past and considers it his favourite course in the country. It’s been a trying 2011 season for the native of Weyburn, Sask., who suffered a back injury while playing hockey as a teenager and has dealt with varying levels of pain since.

DeLaet elected to have surgery in early January to remove a portion of a herniated disc and endured a few months of recovery. He eventually returned to competition on the Nationwide Tour in June and made two additional appearances on the PGA Tour before withdrawing from the AT&T National last week. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Glenn’s gabbing gaffe and thoughts heading into Week 2 “It was Printers who overreacted in a similar situation with the B.C. Lions two seasons ago. He was released and the former MVP hasn’t been seen since.”

CFL EXTRA POINTS DAN TOTH

CALGARY@METRONEWS.CA

Hamilton quarterback Kevin Glenn should take a lesson from Casey Printers, a former MVP whose big mouth and attitude had him punted from the Canadian Football League. Going public with his displeasure after being pulled out of Hamilton’s seasonopening loss to the

Winnipeg Blue Bombers, Glenn said, “It just felt like a smack in the face.” It was Printers who overreacted in a similar situation with the B.C. Lions two seasons ago. He was released and the former MVP hasn’t been seen since. Quarterbacks are supposed to be team leaders, especially when everything goes wrong. How they react to adversity is just one of the many ways they are evaluated.

Glenn was pulled in favour of backup Quinton Porter with the Tiger-Cats down by four points after the Hamilton starter threw his third pick. He was back on the field this week, hopefully with a better attitude, taking reps with the Tabbies’ first-team offence as the club prepares for the Edmonton Eskimos. Buckin’ Tough: If Winnipeg Blue Bombers fans are convinced the team is going nowhere without Buck Pierce at QB this season, they must have been terrified to

see their star get thumped in Week 1. Although Pierce bounced back on his feet, Hamilton linebacker Jamal Johnson hit him so hard it knocked the breath out every Manitoba resident. Pierce proved he’s a tough dude, but the Bombers need to evaluate their pass protection to keep him on his feet. Esks’ ace in the hole: The constant recycling of CFL coaches often comes back to bite teams. The Saskatchewan Roughriders are a case in point after the Eskimos exploited the Green’s defensive tendencies in Week 1. Edmonton offensive co-ordinator Marcus Crandell quarterbacked the Riders and knows the patterns of Riders defensive mastermind Richie Hall, who is back in Regina after two years in Edmonton as head coach. Esks QB Ricky Ray shredded the Riders D in Week 1, going 21-for-27 for 294

yards and three TDs. Kicking crisis in Calgary: Lose an import receiver or running back to injury and you can have a plane full of recruits in town overnight. Lose a Canadian kicker, as the Calgary Stampeders did last week against Toronto, and you really understand pain. The Stamps are without injured placekicker Rob Maver (leg) this week and have added Rene Paredes, a player so obscure he isn’t even a household name in his own house. Paredes spent four seasons at Concordia where he converted 54 of 79 field-goal attempts. The 26-year-old non-import emerged from a pack of kickers the Stamps airlifted into town to try out, including CFL veterans Jamie Boreham and Matt Kellett.

Pirates no longer taking on water A year after enduring 105 losses, new manager has turned perennial losers into National League feel-good story JARED WICKERHAM/GETTY IMAGES

One by one, a seemingly endless train of reporters filed into first-year Pirates manager Clint Hurdle’s office on Wednesday. Last season, the afternoon media session for a midweek game against a last-place opponent like Houston might have drawn a handful in this town where the Steelers rule and the Penguins are a marquee attraction. But it seems like everybody wants to hear what Hurdle has to say these days. An afterthought for virtually an entire generation, these pesky Pirates were only 1 1⁄2 games behind the National League Central lead as play began on Thursday. “There’s been a mindset change in this clubhouse and in this organization,” second baseman Neil Walker said. “I think it’s a lot of guys, but Clint Hurdle has come in here and instilled confidence in every single

one of us.” In stark contrast to insipid predecessor John Russell, Hurdle is at his best with an audience. He cracks jokes, but he’s also not afraid to provide a stern hand with his players. Perhaps no one knows both ends of that this sea-

son better than centrefielder Andrew McCutchen, the team’s best position player. McCutchen was disci-

plined by Hurdle in May and left out of the lineup for not running out a ball in the dirt after he struck out.

But when McCutchen was a surprising omission for an all-star spot last weekend, Hurdle criticized those involved for the decision. “That shows one way that he’s supportive and he’s behind us,” McCutchen said. “It feels good to be

able to hear what he had to say and to have that support by saying what he had to say and not really caring (about repercussions). “That’s the person he is.” Hurdle has recently spoken of the “joy” this season has brought him. The Texas Rangers’ hitting coach last season — after being fired midway through his eighth season as manager of the Colorado Rockies in 2009 — Hurdle said after a recent victory, “I’ve had a lot of different teams, but this team is an absolute blast to manage.” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEED ANOTHER HUG

Yesterday’s answer Andrew Schultz, Meteorologist

A look at the weather TODAY Min 15° Max 19° For today’s crossword answers and for expanded horoscopes, go to metronews.ca

Today’s horoscope You could get a bit touchy today, especially if you suspect someone is aiming to usurp your position. Taurus April 21-May 21 This is a great day for networking, for making connections that will be good for you in the future. Gemini May 22-June 21 You must earn more or spend less — or maybe you’ll have to do both. Cancer June 22-July 22 You may feel as if you don’t have a care in the world but today’s cosmic influences may bring you down a bit.

Yesterday’s answer

Fill in the grid, so that every row, every column and every 3x3 box contains the digits 1-9. There is no math involved. You solve the puzzle with reasoning and logic.

Sagittarius Nov. 23-Dec. 21 You seem to be unusually suspicious of late. Seriously, no one wants to hurt you.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 20 A feud simmering for some time will come to a boil rather quickly.

Aquarius Jan. 21-Feb. 18 Anything that is petty will not only distract you but annoy you, too. Steer clear of trivial people. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20. Try to tone down your act a bit over the next 24 hours — but only a bit. SALLY BROMPTON
