Crime capital of Canada Manitoba tops provinces for violent crime

Manitoba is once again leading the country in violent crime. Data released Thursday by Statistics Canada shows there were 3.6 murders for every 100,000 people in Manitoba last year, the highest rate among the provinces.

Manitoba also recorded a higher robbery rate than any other province: Twice as high as the national average. Saskatchewan posted the highest rate of serious assaults among the provinces, with Manitoba a

Food, clothing, shelter — and a gym membership? It’s not the first thing people offer to low-income Winnipeggers, but Siloam Mission opened a gym Thursday with free access to its patrons. “When you’re living on the street, the first thing to take a beating is your health,” said Vicki Olatun-

dun, manager of Siloam Mission’s onsite Saul Sair Health Centre. “Many (patients) have expressed their desire to work out, but simply can’t afford a gym membership.” University of Manitoba Occupational Therapy students, Craig Bennett and Nadine Blankvoort, interned at Siloam earlier this year. They developed a fitness program and made cold calls to fitness centres, looking for donated

equipment. “To go from a concrete floor covered in dust and half-walls put up ... in six weeks,” said Bennett, gesturing around the room. “We certainly couldn’t have done any of this without the community involvement and the backing of our managers.” “We’ve had a lot of positive feedback from Siloam patrons,” said Blankvoort. The gym is open from 2 to 4 p.m, Monday to Friday.

Autobahn A very good and very professional production of one of bad boy Neil LaBute’s more varied and likeable works. In fact, even if you can’t stand the guy (like me), it’s a damn good play and a damn fine production, though it does cut one of the vingettes to make the show run in Fringe time. Each segment is a lovely short story; some are funny, some are sad, some are both. The segments deal with LaBute themes: power, violence, men, women — all the happy stuff. If I hadn’t just seen it, I’d go see it again. In fact, I think I will, and I might bring the wife if we’re not fighting, or she hasn’t betrayed me, or me her. Did I mention it is very good?

Fear Factor: Canine Edition Even if you’re not a dog person, there’s no denying the power and poignancy of John Grady’s story of a man and his dog. In this case, the dog is Abby, and Grady relates a series of stories involving his beloved companion. Grady tells these stories with a smooth patter and a dry wit, but delivers a powerful emotional punch with the framing story — one in which he faces the decision of

whether or not to put an ailing Abby to sleep. Saying that there were considerable sniffles and much dabbing of eyes at the end of Fear Factor: Canine Edition may suggest how that story ends. But knowing where John and Abby’s story will — and must — end does little to dull its impact. JOFF SCHMIDT/CBC REVIEW CREW

A House Fell tackles serious subject matter in a notso-subtle way. But that’s the problem. In real life, racism and homophobia are mostly hidden — a fact that’s barely considered here.

Winnipeg the robbery capital: Data

JAMES TURNER/METRO

City violent-crime reduction targets to be unveiled in short order, police chief says Robberies one of few crimes committed by kids to climb last year JAMES TURNER

@METRONEWS.CA

Police, government, social-welfare agencies and citizens must each share the burden of battling social problems contributing to Winnipeg’s sky-high robbery rate, the city’s top cop says. Winnipeg’s rate of robberies was more than double the national average in 2010 (176 per 100,000 residents), according to statistics regarding policereported crime released by Statistics Canada Thursday. It’s a grim statistic that comes despite a 13 per cent drop over 2009 robbery levels here, and declines in many other major centres. “It’s high. And that’s a real concern for us as a police service and it should be a real concern for the citizens of Winnipeg,” said police Chief Keith McCaskill. But police aren’t social workers and can’t be expected to enforce the law and solve society’s ills at every turn of the road, McCaskill suggested, naming addictions and poverty as major issues contributing to the high number of robberies. Police already run a cadet program for kids, place officers in schools and take a leading role in a number of city crimeprevention programs.

Expert opinion Robberies are well-reported to police, so it’s unlikely a statistical anomaly is at play in Statistics Canada’s recent crime findings, said University of Manitoba criminologist Rick Linden. But robberies are difficult to prevent or predict, and it’s hard to point to one thing that could help bring the number of them down, Linden added. Police can do geographic mapping and increase patrols, but that won’t get to the root of the problem, Linden suggested. “It’s not amenable to quick fixes. … It really is the case where you have to reduce the culture of violence, starting with kids and working your way up,” Linden said.

“We have to be part of it, we have to make sure we do as much as we can, but it’s a community at large that has to work hard to reduce the crime in this city,” said McCaskill. “Socially, there (are) some issues. … All of those things have to be attacked by government, the city, by the community to get people steered away from those,” he said. Officers have been analyzing crime data and tar-

geting neighbourhoods where violent crime is occurring and it appears to be working, McCaskill said, citing internal data showing violent crime has dropped since the start of the year. He named parts of the city’s north and west ends as problem areas: These are also the locations where the majority of robberies have happened so far this year, city data shows. “We recognize where violent crimes as a whole are being committed and that’s where we have to put our resources.” Between Jan. 1 and July 19, police have recorded 770 non-commercial robberies, according to city statistics. That’s a decline of four per cent over the same period in 2010. For more news, visit metronews.ca/ winnipeg

Police Chief Keith McCaskill addresses local media after Statistics Canada released an omnibus crime survey based on 2010 data Thursday.

Other StatsCan findings People like weed: Canadian drug crimes climbed by 10 per cent in 2010, driven largely by offences related to cannabis. Child pornographers caught: There was a 36 per cent jump in the number of child-pornography offences last year. Manitoba leads homi-

Ex-general fined for affair

Federal officials have released the names of 30 suspected war criminals they say entered the country illegally. The government launched a website Thursday identifying the suspects and is asking the public to report any information that could lead to their whereabouts. There are stringent measures to prevent war criminals from entering the country, but it can be difficult to spot those who apply for asylum using false passports, he said.

Former No. 1 man in Afghanistan pleads guilty to having illicit relations there then urging a cover up The dramatic fall from grace of a once-rising star in Canada's military culminated Thursday in a $7,000 fine and a symbolic reprimand. This was after former Brig.-Gen. Daniel Menard had already gone from being a prominent military commander, to an unemployed civilian fighting to keep his family and rebuild his tattered reputation. It unravelled following an affair with a subordinate, a fling that began in Canada and continued in the makeshift military living quarters in the dusty confines of Kandahar. Menard pleaded guilty Thursday before a military

Military rules Prosecutors cast the case in purely military terms: regulations bar soldiers from having intimate relations while on deployment. The rule even applies to married couples — which Menard and his subordinate were not. When someone at such a senior rank flouts the rules, the military says, it undermines morale and weakens the chain of command.

because he will retain his previous rank and pension benefits. Menard had faced a maximum of two years in prison or a dishonourable discharge from the military. Lt.-Col. Louis-Vincent d'Auteuil, a military judge, cited principles of integrity, honesty and leadership as he read out his verdict. “This happened in the worst place, at the worst time — in a theatre of operation,” he said. He said Menard had an admirable career to that point, which is why he was made a general at such a young age. D’Auteil said that positive track record was also

Remains of Hitler’s confidant burned LENNART PREISS/DAPD/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

The bones of Adolf Hitler’s deputy Rudolf Hess were exhumed under cover of darkness, burned and secretly scattered at sea after his grave became a shrine for thousands of neo-Nazis, a cemetery official said Thursday. Workers removed Hess’ remains from his family’s plot with the permission of his relatives, cremated the bones and dispersed them before dawn on Wednesday, said Andreas Fabel, a cemetery administrator in the Bavarian town of Wunsiedel. Hess was captured in 1941 when he parachuted

into Scotland saying he wanted to negotiate peace between Britain and Germany. The attempt was denounced by Hitler, and Hess later told British authorities that the Nazi leader knew nothing of it. Hess spent the rest of his life as a prisoner of the Second World War allies and since his death in 1987, became a martyr for the far-right. Neo-Nazis have used the anniversary of his death as an occasion to hold large rallies, with Wunsiedel — near the Czech border — often a focal point. With the lease on the

town decided it was best to remove the remains, Fabel said. Charlotte Knobloch, a German Jewish community leader, said the move sends a “clear message.” “I'm happy that the Nazi shadow over Wunsiedel has finally come to an end,” she said. Holocaust survivors also welcomed the move. “There is now one less place of evil in the world,” said Elan Steinberg of the New York-based American Gathering of Holocaust Survivors and their Descendants.

At the Nuremberg trials after the war, Hess was found innocent of war crimes and crimes against humanity, but sentenced to life in prison for crimes against peace. Hess died on Aug. 17, 1987, at age 93. Allied authorities said he hanged himself with an electrical cord.

Sell before prices cool: Report Housing market may return to slow period not seen in about 15 years Prices could significantly decline The time may be right for Canadian homeowners to consider selling as industry experts forecast that prices should soon hit a peak and at best flatten over the next few years. The Royal Bank forecast Thursday that the Canadian market will return to a period of much slower sales and pricing growth. “Going forward, the housing market will look much like the second half of 1990s, with minimum growth in resales and minimum growth if any in

terms of pricing,” said senior economist Robert Hogue. In its housing market outlook report, the bank forecast that home resales will grow by 0.9 per cent this year and remain unchanged in 2012, while home prices will increase by 4.4 per cent this year and a slight 0.4 per cent in 2012. That would mark a moderation or cooling off from strong growth enjoyed between 2002 and 2008. That period was followed by

volatility caused by the global recession and domestic policy changes — such as a sharp drop in interest rates, three rounds of mortgage rule changes and the introduction of the HST in Ontario and British Columbia. RBC expects Canada’s economy will grow by about three per cent this year and next and continue to generate more jobs and income to offset the cooling effect from higher interest rates.

Attitudes toward Muslims have become slightly more positive in the United States, Britain, France, Germany and Russia compared with five years ago, though negative views between Muslim countries and the West persist on both sides, a Pew Center survey found. The survey, by Pew’s Global Attitudes Project, found majorities of Muslims surveyed in five of six Muslim-dominant countries and the Palestinian territories described non-Muslim Westerners as selfish and greedy. In all of the six Western countries surveyed, less than 30 per cent of non-Muslims said they consider Muslims respectful of women.

scene Scene in brief

Chris Evans in Captain America.

Old-fashioned action Richard Crouse and Mark Breslin agree that Captain America is more of an action flick than another superhero movie But it has flaws, like sloppy CGI

Richard Crouse: Mark, I went into this with low expectations. I’m kind of superheroed out these days, but I was pleasantly surprised. It’s a bit long, but it doesn’t feel like the other hero movies we’ve seen recently. The hipness of Iron Man is absent, the jokey feel of Thor is gone. Instead, this is an old-fashioned action adventure movie with extraordinary poets at the heart of it. What did you think? Mark Breslin: I’m superheroed out as well but this guy’s no superhero: he’s an enhanced mesomorph with a magic frisbee! The movie works as an action flick, but it’s missing the irony of the source materi-

al. Is America so desperate to believe in its military that it has to go back to “the last good war” to feel good about itself ? And I have other complaints too, like the sloppy CGI. In the beginning, Chris Evans as a 99-pound weakling looked like a bad photoshopped pic from 2003. RC: I liked its lack of irony. Perhaps part of the appeal is that in the complicated times we live in it’s refreshing to see a movie that harkens back to a simpler time when the enemy was easily identifiable and a strong guy with a colourful shield and plenty of heart could be a hero. The premesomorph Evans may have been a bit sloppy CGI-

wise, but you have to admit, Red Skull’s lack of identifiable facial features was a nice villainous touch. MB: It may say too much about me that I always enjoy the villain rather than the hero. And Hugo Weaving was very good indeed, especially with his red skull. And Tommy Lee Jones always brings his game to a movie, even if the role was rote. Same with Stanley Tucci and Toby Young. The satiric USO tour sequence was fun. And I liked the way the movie ended. See, Richard? I can find the good in anything, even jingoistic propaganda. RC: I know it’s jingoistic

propaganda, but it’s 1940s jingoistic propaganda! I liked the way the movie paid tribute to the rah-rah movies of WWII and B movies of the period. The bad guys are really bad, but never fear! The good guys are better. Where else are you going to see giant bombs, each labeled for extra evil effect with the name of the city they are meant to destroy? MB: The labeling of the bombs was exactly what I wanted more of! I would forgive this movie its flaws if its strengths were greater. But it’s mostly derivative storytelling, choppy editing and unmemorable dialogue. Good action, though.

Neil Patrick Harris in the Smurfs

NED EHRBAR

MWN IN HOLLYWOOD

Aside from getting the chance to help update a beloved franchise, there was one main draw about starring in the Smurfs for Neil Patrick Harris: It was nothing like his over-thetop How I Met Your Mother character. “I spend six-and-a-half, seven months a year playing the chewing-on-thescenery Barney Stinson, and so I look for a role that is different than him in some way during my off time,” he says. And his character, Patrick Winslow, a father-to-be and put-upon marketing exec whose New York apartment becomes a hide-

out for Smurfs, is indeed nothing like Barney. The character is also apparently a departure from Harris himself, who admits he wouldn’t be as welcoming as his on-screen persona if a gaggle of little blue people were to invade his home. “I’d probably Taze them and keep them in a small box and quickly find a reality show or some way to make a profit from it, and travel around like the Warner Bros. cartoon with the frog,” he says before stopping to consider the severity of his answer. “I’m Gargamel, apparently.” The notoriously sunny actor strays to the darker side of humour again when pressed on what his

Smurf name would be, were he to suddenly find himself three apples high. “I’d be Snuff Smurf, and I’d end the suffering of all the dying smurfs everywhere,” he says, grinning, before thinking better of himself. “That was a dark answer,” he says. “Let’s say Magical Smurf because I like magic.” Just because Harris has now starred alongside the legendary Smurfs doesn’t mean all his Smurf-related questions have been answered. “Who’s shagging Smurfette, really? They always kind of go, ‘Ooh,’ and then they pass out, but I want to know what’s going on late at night in Smurf Village,” he says. “Does she get passed from Smurf to

Smurf ? Is she a one-Smurf girl? Is Papa involved? That doesn’t seem right at all. She could swing the other way.” While Harris has been having fun exploring the world of Smurfs over the summer, it will soon be time to get back to work on his hit sitcom — not that he knows exactly what’s happening next. While Harris’ Barney is apparently set to tie the knot, they haven’t told him who he’s marrying. “I keep prying them for information, but they fear that I’ll someday be sitting at a big rectangular table around a bunch of people asking me questions and say something that I’m not supposed to.”

Twilight stars surprise fans at Comic-Con Early risers among Twilight fans have gotten a chance to see what some of their big-screen idols look like first thing in the morning. Not long after dawn broke Thursday, Ashley Greene, Nikki Reed, Elizabeth Reaser and other costars of the supernatural movie franchise made a surprise visit to greet fans who had camped out for days to catch a preview of the next Twilight flick at Comic-Con. Greene, Reed and Reaser, who play members of the Cullen vampire family, were joined by Julia Jones and Boo Boo Stewart, who co-star as kinfolk in the rival werewolf pack. The actors signed Twilight posters, mugs and other movie memorabilia, posed for pictures with fans and even served some breakfast goodies to “Twihards,” some of whom were in line since Monday afternoon to get into the preview at Comic-Con, a massive gathering for fans of comics, video games, television and film.

the movie. The only real fault is an emotional storyline about Timberlake’s character’s father and Alzheimer’s, which grounds the movie to a halt. NED EHRBAR

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 crippling depression. PHIL BROWN

Dane voluntarily checked himself into a facility to work on getting off pain meds, says his rep Grey’s Anatomy star Eric Dane, who is expecting his second child with wife Rebecca Gayheart, quietly checked himself into rehab last month as a “preventative measure” to deal with a dependency on painkillers, according to Star magazine. “Eric felt things spiraling out of control and decided he needed to get some help,” a source says.

The actor’s rep confirms the rehab stint, saying in a statement that Dane “voluntarily checked himself into a treatment facility to help him get off of pain medication that he was prescribed for a sports injury that he suffered over the recent hiatus. He reports back to work next week. Business as usual.”

Jennifer Lopez is reportedly putting her split with Marc Anthony behind her and she started with a performance at a Ukranian wedding, for which Lopez was reportedly paid $1 million, according to Us Weekly. “Are you happy?” she asked the 500 guests at the lavish bash, according to a source. “I am happy, because I am here with you today!” And friends of the singer say she isn’t just putting on a brave face. “She is jumping back into work and being a mom with all her energy and she is really ex-

Hydration Sherry Torkos, a pharmacist, shares her top tips for staying hydrated on-the-go. 1. Pack a cooler full of ice and natural spring water for long trips. 2.

Vive la French wines PETER ROCKWELL LIQUIDASSETS@EASTLINK.CA TWITTER: @THEREALWINEGUY

In our current wine world — where fruit forward juice from the southern hemisphere rules — French winemakers have a tough time catching a break. That may be bit hard to believe since almost every grape populating New World wine labels has its roots in France. French wines, though, have a reputation for being full-bodied and not so easy drinking. I spent two weeks travelling the country and was pleasantly surprised to re-discover how approachable its wines actually are, especially the reds from Beaujolais. Balanced, soft and fruity, they’re ideal introductions to French wines and make perfect summer sippers after a short time in an ice bucket. I got a chance to shake the hand of “the” Georges Duboeuf during my trip and his 2010 Beaujolais-Villages ($13.05 - $16.99) — made with grapes selected from among 38 specific villages — is a refreshingly foodfriendly mix of mashed red fruits, light tannins and bright acidity.

Blanks leads after first round of Canadian Open

Journeyman Kris Blanks shot a 3-under-par 67 for the lead after Thursday’s first round of the RBC Canadian Open. Canadian Matt McQuillan was in a group of 11 players one stroke back at two under. Joining McQuillan in the group at 2 under were Ernie Els, Bill Lunde and Kevin Kisner. Several other players flirted with the lead. Sean O’Hair was 4-under at one point, then had bogeys on the last three holes.

NFL players hold key to a deal Team facilities open Saturday if NFLPA approves agreement to end lockout, commissioner says NFL owners voted overwhelmingly in favour of a tentative 10-year agreement to end the lockout, pending player approval Thursday. The vote was 31-0, with the Oakland Raiders abstaining from the ratification, which came after a full day of meetings at an Atlanta-area hotel. While owners pored over the terms, commissioner Roger Goodell spoke on the

phone several times with NFL Players Association head DeMaurice Smith. “Hopefully, we can all work quickly, expeditiously, to get this agreement done,� Goodell said. Players still had to sign off on the deal — and they must re-establish their union quickly for the agreement to stand, the NFL said. Players didn’t vote on a full pact Wednesday because there were unresolved is-

sues; they planned to have a conference call later Thursday. However, Smith wrote in an email to the 32 player representatives shortly after the owners’ decision:

“Issues that need to be collectively bargained remain open; other issues, such as workers’ compensation, economic issues and end of deal terms, remain unresolved. There is no agreement between the NFL and the players at this time. I look forward to our call tonight.� Final issues involved how to set aside three pending court cases, including the anti-trust lawsuit filed

against the NFL in federal court in Minnesota by Tom Brady and nine other players. NFL general counsel Jeff Pash said the owners’ understanding is that case will be dismissed. One thing owners had sought but won’t get, at least right away, is expanding the regular season from 16 games to 18. That won’t change before 2013, and the players must agree to a switch.

Fans in a frenzy over Riders’ lacklustre start DAVE CHIDLEY/THE CANADIAN PRESS

CFL EXTRA POINTS

“Last year’s West Division champs, who’ve represented the West in three of the last four Grey Cups, are in need of a shakeup and not so much for their record but for the way the team has lost.”

DAN TOTH

WINNIPEG@METRONEWS.CA

Greg Marshall waited a lifetime for his first CFL head coaching job, but will he wait just as long for his first win? At 0-3, some passionate Saskatchewan fans are calling for the new coach’s head on a platter while other scapegoats range from erratic starting QB Darian Durant to defensive co-ordinator Richie Hall, who replaced ‘D’ guru Gary Etcheverry in the off-season. Hamilton stomped on Saskatchewan in a 33-3 victory last weekend that could have been even worse if the Tabbies offence had clicked on several scoring chances. Last year’s West Division

Struggling Roughriders’ quarterback Darian Durant has become one of the top targets of fan angst in Saskatchewan.

champs, who’ve represented the West in three of the last four Grey Cups, are in need of a shakeup and not so much for their record, but for the way the team has lost.

Durant has tossed up twice as many interceptions (six) as touchdown passes this season and his team has been dominated in consecutive weeks by Edmonton, Montreal and Hamilton. The D-line is unable to supply any pressure

on opposing QBs while the secondary has been dissected in each loss. The focal point for fan frustration is Marshall, who must be wishing he had chosen a less stressful line of work. Cleo’s on the clock: It’s year two of the Cleo Lemon Experiment, and as the Toronto Argos prepare for their home opener Saturday against Winnipeg, the status of the team’s No. 1 pivot is getting shaky. Yes, he managed to guide the Double Blue to the East final last season — thanks in large part to a fine Argos defence — and helped beat Calgary in Week 1 this season, but at some point he needs to shows signs he’s developing into a CFL quarterback. Nobody expects Lemon to be another Doug Flutie (although that would be nice), but Lemon’s inability to pile up touchdowns or captivate the Argos fan base has reached a critical point. In a quarterback-dri-

ven league, Lemon needs to grab the wheel and start driving or the Argos will have to turn to backups Dalton Bell or Steven Jyles. It’s their turn. B.C.’s slow star nothing new under Buono: Is it time to fire Wally Buono? When the B.C. Lions last started a season 0-3 in 2002, the perfect solution was to gas Steve Buratto and replace him with Adam Rita. Lions owner David Braley said this week he’s confident in Buono (for now) and you can’t really blame him for sticking with a winner. Buono’s Lions have suffered slow starts the last two seasons before turning it around in the second half of the year. Additional pressure to make a move this season comes from hosting the 2011 Grey Cup, but whacking Buono at this juncture is an unlikely solution.

Andy Schleck closes in on Tour de France leader Voeckler in Stage 18 ‘I’m not afraid to lose’: Schleck

Tour de France leader Thomas Voeckler speeds down Agnel pass on Thursday.

Andy Schleck led a daring attack in the Alps to win the 18th stage of the Tour de France on Thursday, a display of panache that puts him within seconds of the yellow jersey. France’s Thomas Voeckler, in a show of grit of his own, narrowly kept the coveted leader’s shirt by muscling up a punishing final climb to limit the damage at the end of the 205-kilometre trek from Pinerolo, Italy, to Galibier Serre-Chevalier ski station in France. Schleck, a 26-year-old rider from Luxembourg, attacked on the second of three grueling climbs and held on all the way up to

Agonizing Alps The pack scaled more than 60 kilometres of total climbs Thursday, about one-third of which had a gradient of more than 9 per cent. Tour director Christian Prudhomme called the 23.7-kilometre Col d’Agnel — at 2,744 metres — the hardest climb in this year’s race.

the highest-altitude finish in the race’s 108-year history, on the fabled Galibier pass. “I told the team yesterday that I had this in mind.

I wasn’t going to be fourth in Paris,” Schleck said of his place in the standings as the stage began. “I said I’d risk it all and it worked well ... Tomorrow is another day, and I hope to have the yellow jersey.” Frank Schleck was second on Thursday behind his younger brother, by two minutes seven seconds, and two-time Tour runner-up Cadel Evans of Australia was third. Voeckler was 2:21 behind, keeping his overall lead over Andy Schleck by a mere 15 seconds. The elder Schleck is third overall, 1:08 back. Evans is fourth, 1:12 off the pace with three stages left.
