Mayor misled McGuinty: Feds

OPENS TODAY SEE BACK FOR DETAILS

Ford incorrectly told premier city needed $650M in provincial money for Sheppard subway to get Ottawa cash, spokesperson says Mayor Rob Ford was incorrect when he told Premier Dalton McGuinty the city couldn’t get $333 million from Ottawa for the Sheppard subway without $650 million from the province, a federal spokesperson said Thursday. The Harper government already intends to give the city the $333 million, said Vanessa Schneider, spokesperson for Transport

CNE. Fun

and Infrastructure Minister Denis Lebel. The province would need to be a “partner” in any funding deal, she said, but would not necessarily need to contribute $650 million. The $650 million in provincial money and the $333 million in federal money were tied together only under the former Transit City

agreement to build light-rail transit (LRT) on Sheppard, Schneider said. Ford abandoned that agreement in favour of his subway plan. “Basically, the conditions of the LRT agreement no longer exist,” Schneider said in an interview. A senior Ford official rejected any suggestion that Ford had misled McGuinty. TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Advocate urges routine TTC fare hikes STEVE RUSSELL/TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Let’s get this straight: Procar Mayor Rob Ford has told the TTC it can’t hike fares to solve its budget problems. Meanwhile, the city’s leading transit advocate is calling a fare freeze “madness” given the system’s operating challenges. Streetcar crusader and transit blogger Steve Munro believes predictable,

moderate fare increases are preferable to service cuts, given that the TTC is facing an $85-million operating shortfall next year. “If they have a fare freeze this year on top of other cuts they’re contemplating, it will be disastrous … just at the time the system is doing so well,” he said, referring to the 15-

million more riders the TTC is anticipating next year. Next year’s TTC budget is being crafted against Ford’s desperate financial pressures. After promising no service cuts and no layoffs, it’s nearly certain the mayor will have to resort to both if he’s going to close Toronto’s 2012 operating

shortfall, projected to be between $443 million and $774 million. But there’s reason to believe that a moderate hike wouldn’t drive away riders, says Munro. He points out that the ridership losses expected after last year’s 25cent fare increase didn’t materialize.

Via Rail commuters to Toronto are uniting to fight proposed ticketing changes that they say will make the system less flexible and convenient to them. It also prevents them from gaining the same HST exemption and federal income-tax break granted to GO train and TTC pass users. In reply, the company says that holding seats empty for commuters who might not show up is no way to run a railroad. Typically, commuters buy open-ended tickets in packets of 20 — two weeks’ worth — that allow them to board any train into work and home again. Under proposed changes, slated for late fall at the earliest, commuters could still buy in bulk but would have to book each ticket for a specific time. A missed train would lead to a rebooking fee if a passenger didn’t cancel before

train time. The current system, said Via Rail spokesman Ted Bytalan, leaves too many seats empty when riders take a later train or stay home. In June, Cobourg commuters sent Via Rail a petition of 160 signatures to complain of the changes. Others took up the idea on the London-WoodstockBrantford-Toronto route. They also organized a meeting with Via Rail officials in Brantford on Thursday. The petitioning commuters are also demanding — from Ottawa — the HST exemption and federal income-tax breaks.

Police looking for abducted spouse Peel police are searching for a woman they say was abducted by her estranged husband in Brampton

RICK MADONIK/TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Peel police have arrested a man accused of abducting his wife early Thursday, although the woman is still missing. Police found the truck the two were last seen in shortly after 7 a.m. at a parking lot near a hotel around Queen Street East and Rutherford Road in Brampton, not far from where Raquel Junio was abducted more than five hours earlier. Macdermid Ermacora, 43, of Brampton was arrested, police said, but his wife was not in the truck. “We’re very concerned for her well-being at this point and we’re just hoping that she is safe and that he’ll tell us where exactly she is,” said Const. George Tudos. Police were told a man had forcibly confined a woman on Deerfield Crescent, in the Torbram Road and Balmoral Drive area, shortly after 1:30 a.m. Witnesses saw a struggle as the woman was forced into a vehicle,

police said. “She was taken against her will,” said Tudos. “She was struggling not to get taken away.” Next-door neighbour Sarah Duhart said she was awakened by a commotion about 1:30 a.m. “I heard a little bit of yelling, but I didn’t think anything of it,” said Duhart, 23. She said she went back

to sleep, but police came knocking on her door about 3 a.m. Tudos said police are using tracking dogs and the identification bureau in their hunt. Since the truck has been found, police are concentrating their search in the Brampton area, Tudos said, adding that several people have reported spotting the vehicle in the area following the abduction. “We’re utilizing a lot of our manpower and we’re hoping we can come up with some clues or come up with the victim and return her safe to her family,” he said. Police sealed off a phone booth on Queen Street near Rutherford Road, close to where the truck was found and where they say Ermacora apparently made a phone call early Thursday. Tudos said it wasn’t clear who the man had called or whether he had alerted police to his whereabouts.

What happened to the Goddess of Democracy? TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Cheuk Kwan accompanied a guest to York University this week, hoping to show the visiting Hong Kong legislator a gold-painted statue commemorating the victims of the 1989 Tiananmen Massacre. To Kwan’s dismay and embarrassment, the 13foot tall icon — normally standing in the lobby of the campus student centre — had vanished. Its sudden disappearance had some wondering:

Could the statue’s removal possibly be the result of some sinister political pressure from the Chinese government? Or was it carted off simply because, as university administrators contend, the figure was attracting fruit flies? Not only was the statue removed, it appears it was tossed out with the trash. “The Goddess replica is an iconic symbol of China’s democratic movement. We’re upset that

‘I’m not him. No, really, I’m not’

Musical. Revue

@michaelbolton isn’t who you think he is @rogers can’t fix your cable @robford is not selling the zoo CONTRIBUTED

Michael Bolton remembers the day he discovered Michael Bolton. It was 1985, and he was in a record shop in Sudbury. “I remember thinking two things,” said the 50year old software consultant from Toronto. “‘Oh my God, I hope he’s not successful,’ and ‘If he is, my life is ruined.’” As Michael Bolton unbuttoned his denim shirt and let his long hair blow in the wind for ’90s music videos, the Toronto Bolton dealt with the repercussions. Every time he rented a car, there was a pause, a laugh, a comment. Now, more than 25 years later, there is another wrinkle in the forced relationship: Twitter. Toronto’s Michael Bolton signed up for Twitter first, and he’s not willing to relinquish the username @michaelbolton, even if it means receiving random messages about his lovely voice or

requests for autographs. On Twitter, simple usernames are important when you’re building a brand. Since selling a name is technically against the rules at Twitter, whoever gets there first gets the name, even if they’re not famous. Bolton says he has been approached for his name, but he won’t give it up. “My colleague said, ‘Don’t you have a heart? ... Give it up. Where’s your humanity, man?’” The same goes for Glenn Rogers, a senior in-

teractive producer in Brooklyn, N.Y. He signed up for Twitter when it was a start-up and chose @rogers, because it was simple. Every day, he receives up to 100 misdirected tweets. “One of my most memorable was NBA player Steve Nash tweeting that he was on his way to @Rogers centre to his thousands of fans.” He says Rogers approached him to cede the handle a year ago, but he wasn’t interested. He likes the shortness. He finds it amusing. So, too, does Rob Ford, director of technology at a Massachusetts school board. “My wife and I always get a good chuckle from tweets like ‘@robford wants to cut $700M+ including selling the zoo.’ If my three-year-old ever found out I was selling a zoo she would be heartbroken.” TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Taller, faster, steeper, yaaaaaaaaaaay! CONTRIBUTED

A roller-coaster being built at Canada’s Wonderland will be vying for a coveted title in the race to build the world’s tallest, fastest, steepest thrill rides. The Leviathan, which will stand 93.3 metres tall and accelerate up to 148 kilometres per hour, is set to debut next May. The 139-metre Kingda

Ka at Six Flags theme park in New Jersey holds the title as the world’s tallest coaster. Fastest belongs to the Formula Rossa in Abu Dhabi, which rockets to an astonishing 240 kilometres per hour. And Japan recently unveiled the steepest ride, the Takabisha, with a free falling angle of 121 degrees.

So which record is the Leviathan looking to break? “It will be the tallest and fastest coaster in Canada,” Wonderland spokeswoman Dineen Beaven said. The $28-million Leviathan will be Wonderland’s only giga-coaster, a term used to describe rides

more than 91.4 metres tall, and the park’s 16th in total. Only California’s Six Flags and Cedar Point, in Ohio, have more coasters, Beaven said. “It’s great to be able to rank with them,” she said. “We have a really wide variety, which is what I think makes our park appealing.” TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Let’s roll Swiss firm Bollinger & Mabillard is designing the Leviathan. It also created the Behemoth for Wonderland in 2008. The Behemoth currently holds the record for tallest and fastest ride in the country. The Leviathan will tower 23.3 m over its sister coaster and travel 23 km/h faster.

Chile dictatorship’s victim list grows

Somalia. Famine

About 32,000 gave testimony 9,800 recognized as victims of torture or other human rights violations SANTIAGO LLANQUIN/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE

Chile officially recognized 9,800 more victims of its dictatorship on Thursday, increasing the total number of people killed, tortured or imprisoned for political reasons to 40,018. A similar effort in 2004 determined that 27,153 survivors deserve monthly compensation from the government for human rights violations they suffered. Chilean President Sebastian Pinera accepted the official victim list on Thursday, which includes 3,065 people who were killed by Chile’s military or were simply made to disappear and are presumed dead. Survivors of rights violations will get lifetime pensions of about $260 US a

The previous total was tallied in 2004 in an effort led by bishop Sergio Valech. Chile had tallied the dead under President Patricio Alywin, Chile’s first democratically elected leader following the 19731990 dictatorship. Both efforts were praised for helping Chile’s democracy settle unpaid debts. However, Valech’s commission was criticized because one of its establishing principles was to keep secret for 50 years the identities of those responsible.

Top nations tell Assad: Go 30 U.S. President Barack Obama and the leaders of Canada, Britain, France, Germany and the European Union sent this message to Syrian President Bashar Assad on Thursday: Resign — you’re not fit to lead. “The Assad regime has lost all legitimacy,” said Prime Minister Stephen Harper. Assad “is imprisoning, torturing and slaughtering his own people,” Obama said. The dramatic messages from Ottawa, Washington, London, Paris, Berlin and Brussels were accompanied by a UN demand that the International Criminal Court probe Assad’s brutal suppression of his people. Meanwhile, tough new U.S. sanctions froze all Syrian government assets in

The moves intensified already mounting pressure on Assad, who has refused to ease his regime’s ruthless crackdown on a fivemonth-old opposition uprising. He has unleashed his security forces on numerous cities, killing nearly 2,000 people, many of them innocent civilians. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Savagery out of Sinai as gun gangs attack Buses, cars and an army patrol hit as fighters target southern Israel Israeli aircraft bomb Gaza in retaliation Airstrike kills a child It was one of the boldest attacks on Israel in years. Squads of gunmen armed with heavy weapons and explosives crossed into southern Israel on Thursday and attacked buses, cars and an army patrol. Israel said the Palestinian assailants from Gaza killed eight people after crossing through Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula. Exchanges of gunfire across the Israel-Egypt border continued late into the evening. But it wasn’t clear whether assailants were still at large within Israeli territory, Deputy Defence Minister Matan Vilnai said.

“The incident underscores the weak Egyptian hold on Sinai and the broadening of the activities of terrorists.” EHUD BARAK, ISRAELI DEFENCE MINISTER

The attacks stoked concerns that Palestinian militants might be exploiting instability in Egypt. Security in the Sinai desert, dominated by Bedouin tribes, has deteriorated sharply since February when longtime leader Hosni Mubarak was ousted in a popular uprising.

Many Israelis saw Mubarak as a source of stability. Within hours of the attacks, Israeli aircraft bombed southern Gaza in retaliation — and Gaza medical official Adham Salmia said five militants and one child were killed in a strike on a private home.

Cha-Ching. Earn more cash back than ever before.

The attacks on Israelis began at midday and appeared co-ordinated. Israeli security forces tracked down some of the assailants and killed seven in a gun battle, military spokesperson Lt. Col. Avital Leibovich said. Defence officials said three of the bodies were booby-trapped. In November, Israel began erecting a fence along the border with Egypt, in part to keep out Islamic militants in Sinai. The fence, which is to take up to two years to build, will cover at least 140 kilometres of the 250kilometre boundary.

Ambushed bus stained with blood It was shortly after noon in southern Israel and a civilian bus was heading toward the Red Sea resort city of Eilat. Suddenly, it was ambushed by gunmen armed with automatic weapons, grenades and suicide bomb belts. “We heard a shot and saw a window explode,” said passenger Idan Kaner. Then came another shot. “There was chaos in the bus …everyone jumped on everyone else,” Kaner said. TV video showed the bus with its windows shattered. Its seats were stained with blood. Luggage littered the aisle. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Pope blames greed for youth agony

DENIS DOYLE/GETTY IMAGES

Young people worry for future as they search for work during the economic crisis, Benedict XVI says Pope Benedict XVI denounced the profit-at-allcost mentality that he says is behind Europe’s current economic crisis as he arrived in hard-hit Spain on Thursday. He said morals and ethics must play a greater role in formulating economic policy in the future. Benedict made the comments as he travelled to Madrid for the Catholic Church’s World Youth Day, a weeklong Catholic festival that is taking place against a backdrop of the European debt crisis and social unrest among the young that exploded recently in the riots in Britain. Benedict said the crisis and sense of desperation among young people proved that ethics have been increasingly left out of

Faith in job search Unemployment in Spain is nearly 21 per cent — the highest in the eurozone. The Pope urged young people to keep fast in their faith. “With God beside them, they will possess light to walk by and reasons to hope,” he said.

formulating economic policy at local and international levels. He said the current crisis shows that a moral dimension isn’t “exterior” to economic problems but “interior and fundamental.” “Man must be at the centre of the economy, and the economy cannot be measured only by maximization of profit but rather according to the common good,” he said.

Catholics probe string of deaths 74 children died at two institutes over three years, almost 60 years ago Archives scoured for evidence A Dutch Catholic institute for disabled girls said Thursday it will review 40 deaths at the children’s home in the early 1950s. The review comes days after prosecutors began a criminal investigation into 34 deaths at a former Catholic boys’ institute in the same town and the same time period. The mysterious rash of deaths came to light during a search of Catholic church archives by a commission investigating possible sexual abuse. There is no evidence that the deaths in the southern town of Heel was investigated for common threads or links to each other.

Guus Feron, director of the St. Anna’s girls institute, said the institute routinely destroyed dossiers 15 years after residents left or died. He said one possibility would be finding records of a contagious illness. Eugene Baak, spokesman for the regional public prosecutor’s office, said the girls’ deaths are not currently thought to be suspicious. Prosecutors said that even if they find evidence, they are unlikely to be prosecuted due to the passage of time. Suspects may have died, and statutes of limitations apply to crimes other than murder.

Odd tips A spokesman said the investigating commission tipped his office with ”specific information” that the death rate at St. Joseph’s boys institute spiked sharply to more than 10 per year in 1952-1954. Dutch media reported that the priest who oversaw the sick ward of St. Joseph’s during those years was dismissed abruptly after a complaint by a doctor. The priest has not been publicly identified. St. Joseph’s closed in 1969.

news Tourists got his goat TYROL. No buts about it —

this billy goat was a pain in the butt. Austrian state broadcaster ORF reports a German tourist couple had their hands full for three hours with a goat that wouldn’t quit attacking them. To stop the butting, Steffen Prill was forced to grab the beast by the horns — and hold on. Prill says he literally dragged it down the mountain slope they were hiking on. He and Anja Buder, his wife, said Thursday that every time Prill let go, the horned assaults continued. Police called to the scene finally soothed the animal. There were no serious injuries — but ORF, citing police, says the goat’s owner will have to pay for Buder’s ripped trousers. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

STORM FLATTENS Three-day Belgian open-air festival’s international lineup included Foo Fighters, Eminem, The Offspring A storm swept through a popular open-air music festival in a town in eastern Belgium on Thursday killing at least three people and injuring more than 70 others, an official said. Ambulances and police cars raced to and from the site of the Pukkelpop festival, near the town of Hasselt, east of Brussels, late Thursday, their sirens blaring. Concertgoers described scenes of panic as the sky darkened, the winds whipped, rain poured, hailstones larger than one centimetre across pelted the crowds, and concert structures buckled. “It was frightening. It looked terrible. All the structures collapsed,” said Brinnie Gardner, 20, of Aukland, New Zealand,

It was crazy.” Hugo Simons, Hasselt’s head of emergency medical planning, told VRT radio that three people had died, 11 had been severely injured and 60 had sustained light injuries as a result of the storm. Organizers estimated that 60,000 people were at the three-day festival,

which started Thursday, when the storm broke. Many were streaming out of the grounds after the storm, which turned the festival site into a scene of mud and destruction within about 10 minutes. Video from the site showed stage equipment dangling in high winds as rain-soaked concertgoers at the music festival ran for cover. Trees and branches all around the area were downed, evidence of the sudden ferocity of the winds. Ambulances ferried the seriously injured to nearby hospitals. Some of those lightly injured were treated at a local sports complex. More than 20 ambulances were dispatched to the festival ground. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Revelers mill around near a collapsed marque tent after a storm hit the Pukkelpop music festival in Kiewit Hasselt, Belgium, on Thursday leaving at least three people dead and 70 others seriously injured, firefighters said. Two stages collapsed, one falling on the concert-goers. Some giant screens also fell down and trees were uprooted by the fierce storm.

Images of the disaster showed fallen lighting scaffolds. Dutch NOS television reporter Rick Hoogkamp, who was attending the concert Thursday, said several tents collapsed. An AP reporter saw concession stands blown down and a large food tent spread across the ground. One of those who watched a tent collapse was Laura Elegeert, 17, of SaintNicolas, Belgium. “It was utter confusion, mass panic,” Elegeert said. “People were trying to get out of this tent that collapsed by using their pocket knives and cutting holes in the fabric.”

You don’t always get what you pay for – especially when it comes to insurance Are You Paying Too Much? The motto “you get what you pay for” used to be true of most things, but the times, they are changin’, and this is no longer true for many things, most notably car insurance. In fact, you could be paying hundreds, or even thousands of dollars more than you should for your coverage. How is this possible? It is somewhat complicated to explain, but, to sum it up: Insurance companies base their rates on their experience with similar driver profiles and cars. Since no two companies’ experiences are exactly the same, it is rare that different companies will give you the same potential insurance premium for your profile and car.

Experience Counts It has been statistically proven that drivers over 50 years of age have fewer accidents and tickets than the average, and this means that there are more potential savings to be found for more experienced drivers. In fact, some companies actually specialize in serving the mature market, so it’s definitely worth comparing rates.

Loyalty May Not Pay If you are getting a loyalty discount you might be thinking that you are better off staying with your current insurance provider. This might be true, but it’s impossible to be certain without doing some research. You just might find that the potential savings far outweigh any loyalty discount being offered.

With a fall election on the horizon, the Ontario Tory leader told reporters Thursday he was wondering when the question would come up. The answer is yes, he lived a “pretty normal life” growing up and smoked — and inhaled — marijuana in his younger days. Tim Hudak, who was asked the question while touting a campaign promise to create a registry for homes that have been used as grow-ops or meth labs, added he hasn’t lit up “in some time.” The 43-year-old says he doesn’t support the decriminalization of small amounts of marijuana because “drug use is wrong” and grow-ops create

Goldman Sachs SIGMA X system would be the 11th in country Move comes as competition intensifies

Another new stock market is set to debut in Canada, this time in the hands of New York investment bank Goldman Sachs. The Wall Street firm said Thursday that it will bring its stock market system, SIGMA X, to Canada at an unspecified date. The SIGMA system is what’s known as a “dark pool” market — one that would allow investors to anonymously buy and sell stocks on the Toronto Stock Exchange. The stock market will be financed by numerous investors in addition to Goldman, including brokers, hedge funds and institutions, it said. “The growth potential of the Canadian equity

The move comes as competition in the stock market space intensifies. TMX Group, operator of Canada’s major exchanges, including the TSX, is in the middle of a hostile takeover bid for the company. The bidder, Maple Group Acquisition Corp., which groups a number of financial institutions and pension funds, is giving investors until the end of September to decide whether they want to tender their shares under the $3.8-billion offer. Goldman said in a release that its trading system would “provide a broad source of Canadian equity liquidity.” THE CANADIAN PRESS

Seems some scientists suggest these “geomagnetic storms” could have caused the unrest that week, as there is some evidence they impact human behaviour. Everything I did wrong that week I now unapologize for. Dads on vacation: This Tumblr blog (dadsonvacation.Tumblr.com) could really catch on.

Hours later, she tweeted she had married now-husband Zack Kehayov. We thought long courtships were the way to go to make sure the fit was there, but now whirlwind romances that you tweet about will be all the rage. Not. Kate Gosselin cancelled: Good riddance. TLC announced this week that Kate Gosselin’s reality show Kate Plus 8 will be shuttered after this season. The show reached its peak around the time the marriage of Kate and Jon was melting down before our eyes when the show was Jon & Kate Plus 8.

Feel so guilty I could barely sleep. Casey Anthony is a monster.” Enough said. Teen vampire: A 19-year-old dude in Texas broke into a complete stranger’s apartment on the weekend and began making “growling and hissing noises” while “biting and hitting” her. When apprehended, the kid told police, “I’m a vampire, and I’ve been alive for over 500 years.” Or he’s just watched Twilight one too many times.

Letters RE: No wildlife vet to aid dying deer, published Aug. 16, 2011 I am a veterinarian doctor from Colombia. I was shocked by this news and not being able to figure out why a situation like this is happening in a country like Canada. In my 30 years of experience as a wild animals doctor and co-founder of the Foundation Against Animal Cruelty in Bogota, Colombia, I had never heard a case where the authorities make irrational decisions that go against animal rights. I am pretty sure in Toronto there are hundreds of qualified immigrant doctors looking for a volunteer position available to take care of wild animals in Canada. Unfortunately, none of these institutions realize that there are overqualified people willing to contribute with our knowledge and experience so that a situation like this never happens in Canada. Finally, I would like you to think about Mahatma Gandhi’s idea that “the greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.” ARTURO HERRERA TORONTO

nicipal cemetery was built on the site of a burnt forest last week, without a permit and in breach of environmental, health and zoning laws. Glyfada officials countered that they acted “out of despair” as their existing graveyard is full. The ministry said Thursday it wanted all eight graves removed and their occupants reinterred, following talks with Church authorities. Cemetery congestion is common in Greece, where most of the dead are buried in graves that must be vacated after a three-year period. The powerful Orthodox Church opposes cremation.

WEEKEND, AUGUST 19-21, 2011

A day full of gimmicks One Day moves too slow and its romantic premise feels contrived Crouse and Breslin butt heads over the chemistry of Hathaway and Sturgess Richard: Mark, One Day is many things. It’s a style parade of hair and clothes from the past two decades and it’s an interesting take on how to tell a story but it’s also a little disconnected. I think the year-by-year format — we drop in on Jim and Anne every July 15 for 20 years — is the culprit. It begins to feel gimmicky by the early ’90s and by the millennium it almost feels as though it is playing out in real time. MB: Finally, a movie that asks the question: What happens when an insufferable prig meets an egomaniacal twit? The answer is: very little, at least until 15 years has passed. In the ’70s, there was a film and

play called Same Time Next Year, which used a similar gimmick. In that film, a couple meet every year at the same time for a sexy romp, and slowly fall in love. In this movie, the couple start off with a romantic friendship, and then consummate the relationship after many years. And there, Richard, is the indisputable evidence of why the ’70s was a much better time. RC: Ha! I'll give you that this might have been a very different story had it been set in 1974, but I thought the decades-long dance they do as they pretend not to be in love showed the chemistry between the two. The film has some serious

structural flaws but the spark between the two of them forgives many of the film’s sins. MB: Spark? What spark? I could barely see what they saw in each other. He’s a jerk, at least until half the movie’s over, and she’s a puritan with bad taste in eyewear. And her accent is as fake as the rest of this sentimental travelogue through time. The movie did make London look very appealing, though, so I kept wishing that a neutron bomb would go off, wiping the cast from the screen and leaving all the gorgeous architecture intact. RC: I clearly liked this more than you! I thought

Sturgess brought an easy charm to the character, and his transformation from happy-go-lucky student to lounge lizard TV presenter is effective. Hathaway’s appeal lies in the intelligence she brings to her characters. Here she plays a smarty-pants young woman set adrift in life, someone who is slowly finding the self confidence to be who she really wants to be. In Hathaway’s hands you never doubt that she’ll get there. MB: Usually, I’d love to be in Anne Hathaway’s hands. But not this time. And she wore the same Tshirt in bed in 1988 as she did in 1992. Did she ever wash that thing? Ewwww!

Paul Rudd is the ‘Idealistic’ idiot Actor wreaks havoc on his sisters’ lives in new film NED EHRBAR

The dreaded pink eye

SCENE@METRONEWS.CA MWN IN HOLLYWOOD

Call it the Trouble with Hippies. Paul Rudd’s new film, Our Idiot Brother, follows a hapless idealist (Rudd) who, after serving time for selling pot to a uniformed police officer, proceeds to crash with each of his three sisters (played by Elizabeth Banks, Emily Mortimer and Zooey Deschanel), wreaking havoc on their carefully constructed New York City lives in the process. Rudd admits that, despite the damage Ned creates in the film, his outlook on life is admirable.

While none of the actors describe themselves as particularly Method, Emily Mortimer was extremely helpful in establishing the family dynamic from the get-go. “Emily came to set with pink eye on the first day,” Elizabeth Banks remembers. “It was repulsive and made us not want to touch her. It really was sweet, it was like she did it for us.”

“It’s an idealistic way to live,” he says. “I think we try and strive for that not judgmental, not cynical way of an open and honest way of living. The world doesn’t really function like that. Families don’t really function like that. It’s a balancing act.” The trick to achieving the film’s believable bond between the siblings, Rudd insists, was not having any

money to make the film. “I’m sure it bummed them out a little bit sometimes, but we benefited from being a pretty lowbudget movie and not having trailers and places for people to escape and be alone and forced everyone to hang out with each other all the time,” he says. “It could have backfired and they could have hated each other, but luckily

everyone really enjoyed each other.” For some in the cast, though, it wasn’t just the working conditions that made the story accessible. Banks admits she felt some serious déjà vu when she read the script. “I am the oldest, bossiest daughter of a family of four. I have two sisters, one of whom is a divorced mother of two, and one of whom lives in Brooklyn

with four roommates,” she says. “I have a 26-year-old brother who sells pizza and maybe something else while delivering those pizzas. Yes, I really connected to the film in a deep way.” She could also relate to Ned, she admits, as she’s no stranger to causing strife by saying the wrong thing to the wrong family member. A particular email about her sister’s wedding comes

to mind: “Basically I was like, ‘When we go to the wedding, we’re just going to make the best of a bad situation.’ My sister ended up on the email forward and wrote me back, replyall, ‘I really wish I didn’t know this was how you were coming to my wedding,’” she says. “Needless to say, I was not in the wedding at my sister’s wedding, nor was my other sister.”

Movie reviews When Alexa Vega, star of the original Spy Kids, pops up on-screen in Spy Kids 4 as a full-fledged adult, it will make you feel old. Yes, it’s been 10 years since the first film, and while Robert Rodriguez’s grasp of micro-budget effects has come a long way, his knack for kid-friendly stories hasn’t. The jokes are groan-inducing even for the elementary school set, and the less said about the Aroma-Scope scratch-andsniff cards given out the better, except to point out that nearly half of the

Fright Night 3D Genre: Comedy/Horror Director: Craig Gillespie Stars: Anton Yelchin, Colin Farrell, David Tennant 811

Even if you’re a devotee of director Tom Holland’s original 1985 vampire comedy Fright Night, you might still be able to groove on Craig Gillespie’s

contemporary 3D remake. When Fright Night 3D comes into its own, adding new twists and relying on its novel setting and the strengths of its new cast and characters, only the most dour pundit would argue the movie is nothing short of a breath of fresh fetid air. CHRIS ALEXANDER

smell cues are flatulencerelated. While it might seem futile to critique the script of a movie like this, it’s truly amazing that Rodriguez managed to work the word ‘time’ into almost every line of dialogue. The movie also features Jeremy Piven in multiple roles, which really should be enough of a red flag on its own, and Ricky Gervais as the voice of a robot dog that speaks exclusively in fart jokes and Ricky Gervais stand-up bits. NED EHRBAR

Conan the Barbarian Genre: Action Director: Marcus Nispel Stars: Jason Momoa, Ron Perlman, Rose McGowan 81

The most impressive thing about Conan the Barbarian is star Jason Momoa’s rear end, which can practically stand up on its own. The same, sadly, can’t be said for Marcus Nispel’s movie. It’s a straight-forward revenge tale that jogs unenthusiastically from action setpiece to action set-piece, borrowing from enough of its predecessors to Whirligig Genre: Comedy/Drama Director: Chaz Thorne Stars: Gregory Smith, Fiona Highet 88 1⁄2

Filmmaker Chaz Thorne lays the quirkiness on thick in his new comicdrama Whirligig. When an anxiety-ridden ex-Mor-

make the whole thing feel overly generic. The movie’s first section, though, is killer, and the highlight is Conan as a boy, played by the ferocious Leo Howard. The resemblance to Momoa is

striking, but Howard’s barbarian is just that much more animalistic and feral. But when your hero is already a fearless warrior who can behead a whole gang of armed savages twice his size, where else can you possibly go with the character? The only real difference between Conan at the beginning of the movie and Conan at the end is that he’s older and played by a different actor. Maybe an entire movie about a preteen barbarian would’ve been a better idea. NED EHRBAR

mon returns to Nova Scotia, he hits rock bottom alongside his eccentric parents and their equally dysfunctional neighbours. While star Gregory Smith is a bright light of abnormality, the story’s novelty soon grows cumbersome. STEVE GOW

Griff The Invisible is an Australian indie twist on the DIY superhero movie like Kick Ass. What makes the film unique is that there’s no suggestion that Griff ever has a chance of becoming a hero. Despite his costumed antics, the character is clearly delusional and the film works best when focused more on the bizarre love story between Griff and an

equally unbalanced young woman than the crime fighting theatrics. Though the delusional would-be super hero has been done before, writer/director Leon Ford’s interest lies more in his character’s unhinged mental state and the sad reality that implies. That shift in focus makes for a far more resonant and emotionally complex movie than the gentle comedy appears to be at first glance. PHIL BROWN

The Lady Holmes Metro recently sat down with the star of Guillermo Del Toro’s latest film Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark HEIDI PATALANO

SCENE@METRONEWS.CA METRO WORLD NEWS IN NEW YORK

Katie Holmes

Joey Potter has grown up. The 31-year-old woman who became famous for that character on Dawson’s Creek so many years ago, is now poised and unflappable as she sits in New York’s Waldorf Astoria, sweetly answering questions about her latest film, Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark. Produced by the auteur of gore, Guillermo Del Toro, Dark centres around a young girl named Sally (Bailee Madison) who joins her father (Guy Pearce) and his new girlfriend (Holmes) to live at an old restored

to

mansion, which, Sally learns, harbours some creepy ancient creatures who are dying for some company. “They’re like cockroaches but worse because they’re slimy, so it’s like half-maggot, half cockroach,” Holmes says of the predatory homunculi. Where the actress, who has been married to fellow actor Tom Cruise for five years this November, is heavy on charm — she even thanked us for coming out in the rain to support the film — she’s light on candour. Holmes is one to, as we say in the business, “stick to the script” — not that we blame her. “It was a real thrill to work with Guillermo,” she

says when asked how doing this movie compared with the horror movies she did earlier in her career. “I loved the characters and the family dynamics that really bring the audience in. Then, all of a sudden something scary happens and you realize you’re on this thrill ride.” But how about those films like I Know What You Did Last Summer? She continues: “I started my career with The Ice Storm — that was a character-driven slice-of-life drama and horror. I feel fortunate. I’ve worked with a lot of really good actors and filmmakers, so it was nice to have that opportunity again in this picture.”

Young actor steps into a king’s shoes Jamie Campbell Bower set to play fabled King Arthur in Camelot Show imagines when Arthur was just a ‘scared and confused’ child JONATHAN HESSION

AMBER RAY

SCENE@METRONEWS.CA METRO WORLD NEWS IN NEW YORK

Jamie Campbell Bower wonders if it’s something other than his talents that helped him land roles in two of Hollywood’s most successful fantasy film franchises — Harry Potter and the Twilight saga — not to mention the role of legendary King Arthur in the new Starz epic, Camelot. “Maybe I have a look,” he ponders about his career in the genre. “Do you think I have a look?” After posing a few questions about tackling the iconic Arthur to the 22year-old, we’re pretty sure his appeal is more about charisma and confidence than just that smouldering stare. What kind of king do you play in Camelot?

A child. Torn from his home, from everything he thought he knew, and thrown into a position of great power. Our Arthur, to begin with, is scared and confused, but throughout the first season, and hopefully subsequent, he grows and develops into a man and into a true king.

The show airs Tuesday nights at 9 p.m. (9:30 NT) on CBC this fall.

How does he differ from other incarnations of the character?

Not many interpretations of the myth pick up the story [with Arthur as a boy]. People may have this preconceived idea of what King Arthur should be like — a big, bearded, brutish hero, but what we have done is add realism to the story. If — because there is no factual evidence that this man existed — he did exist, Arthur would have been a boy at some point, and what episodic television allows us is the time to ex-

plore the realities of life and a development of character. Did you have any apprehensions in bringing this legend to life?

Yes, of course. With great power comes great responsibility. It was terrifying for me but I love a challenge. Have you experienced any criticism for your interpretation of Arthur? Fantasy fans can be a tough crowd.

Yes. I think there are critics out there who have, like I said before, a preconceived idea of who this character is

and they are not willing to change that. The whole idea of our show is progression. It should be exciting to see this character grow. I suppose you can’t please everyone. Why do you think the fantasy genre is experiencing so much popularity right now?

Above anything, people want to be taken away from the monotony of daily life. They want to invest in characters. People want to be entertained. I don’t think it’s a genre thing per say — it should be all about story.

Kate Winslet has joined with fellow British actresses Emma Thompson and Rachel Weisz to form the “British Anti-Cosmetic Surgery League,” with all three vowing to never go under the knife, she tells the Telegraph. “I will never give in. It goes against my morals, the way that my parents brought me up and what I consider to be natural beauty,” she says. “I am an actress, I don’t want to freeze the expression of my face.”

Sandwiches: The next generation These combinations give new life to the lunch item that typically includes ham and cheese Experiment with different and unique fillings MATTHEW MEAD/ THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Lunch box sandwiches don’t have to default to ham and cheese or peanut butter and jelly. There are plenty of options to mix things up and keep them interesting. Ditching the sliced bread is a good place to start. Consider making sandwiches on a piece of baguette (or multiple smaller sandwiches on thin baguette slices). Or if crusty bread isn’t your kid’s favourite thing, try folding or rolling the fillings in a piece of lavash or naan flatbread. You can also get creative with fillings. Sliced meats can be combined with yogurt or cream cheese spreads, and cucumber sandwiches can be made more nutritious and filling by adding hummus.

Kids vs. veggies

Limit the stress of getting kids to eat their veggies with these tips. • Repetition is key. Some kids need to be introduced to a new food 12 times before trying it. • Offer variety when cooking meals by including cooked and raw veggies. • Luckily, veggies and fruits come in a rainbow of colours. Consider assigning a new colour to each week’s meal plan and let the kids weigh in. • Try prepared foods. For young kids, mixing pureed or minced vegetables into foods like meatballs, dips and stews is a good strategy. NEWS CANADA/ PC.CA

One of the questions I get asked the most is which wine producing country I enjoy visiting. Winemakers have a habit of growing their grapes in pretty interesting places, so it’s tough to answer. I’ve had adventures in Italy, Spain, Argentina, California and, most recently, France. That said, my time in South Africa may have been the best combination of new and mindblowing experiences. Sadly, South African wines have been limping along in popularity over the last decade. Without a major powerhouse producer that draws people down its liquor store aisle on a regular basis, the selection across the country is best known as a population of individuality — where standalone wines with unique personalities and funky names rule. Douglas Green’s 2010 The Beach House ($9.73 - $11.99) is a perfect example. A blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, it’s a relaxed white with fresh gooseberry aromatics and a crisp backbone of green fruit massaged by subtle honeyed undertones that taste like liquid summer.

TFC took a 1-0 lead an the 21st minute when Johnson took advantage of poor Tauro defending, beating two defenders to get clear in the box and putting a left-footed shot past Tauro goalkeeper Alvaro Anzola.

Esks looking mortal CFL EXTRA POINTS DAN TOTH

TORONTO@METRONEWS.CA

Nobody believed Edmonton could finish first in the West this season, not even the Eskimos, and seven weeks into the season reality is finally setting in. The Esks followed their surprising 5-0 start with consecutive losses, culminating with a putrid fourpoint offensive performance in Montreal in their second consecutive loss. After lighting up the scoreboard through that five-game win streak, the Esks have posted just 20 total points in the last two losses in which opponents have shut down the Green and Gold running game.

With Ricky Ray forced to throw, opposing defences have narrowed their focus on pummeling the Edmonton quarterback, recording 10 sacks. In the last two games Jerome Messam has collected just 47 yards along the ground, a far cry from the first five games when he provided the Esks with a balanced and often unstoppable attack. The Eskies get a reprieve this week against the B.C. Lions, before taking on the Calgary Stampeders in back-to-back contests starting Labour Day. A sweep and Calgary could be well on its way to first place in the West. Argos leading the crawl to playoffs by a nose: We’re only one-third through the CFL schedule but it’s hard to imagine B.C., Saskatchewan or Toronto deserving a berth in the playoffs in November, yet at least one will find a way. The Argos may have the

inside track, with four consecutive games against the Riders and Lions over the next month. A decent showing in the next four weeks could at least secure the Double Blue a crossover spot in the West. No flipping way: Give full credit to Saskatchewan’s Hugh Charles for his athletic prowess in scoring three Touchdowns against Calgary last week, but can the man not count? His third TD left the hapless Riders 17 points (yes, 17!!!) behind Calgary on the scoreboard yet the last-place Roughies running back was celebrating with backflips. Add selfish behaviour to the long list of problems in Ridervillle. Then came news this week out of Regina that Charles has been sidelined with an injury. The Riders aren’t disclosing details, but wouldn’t it be ironic if it happened during one of those flip-flops.

I HAVE THE SECRETS AND PRAYERS TO WIN IN THE GAMES. I SHOW YOU THE FACE OF YOUR ENEMY, TAROT, RUNAS, CARACOLES.
