Someone knows what happened Sketch of witness unavailable because man’s head was down, police say Three people cleared in parallel investigation into tampering FACEBOOK.COM

Gatineau police are searching for a key witness in their investigation into the killing of Valérie Leblanc. “We need the public’s help to find this person,” Sgt. Jean-Paul Lemay said at a press conference Thursday. “At the present moment he is considered an important witness.” They are asking the man to step forward and members of the public to call police immediately if they see him. Police have compiled a description of the witness based on tips they received from the public since last Tuesday, when passersby discovered Leblanc’s lifeless body in Gatineau Park. A 20-to-30-year-old white man was spotted close to the scene of the crime by several people, police said. The man was walking a mountain bike “decisively” between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. with his head down. The bike had big

tires and a straight handlebar. The man is approximately six feet tall, 200 pounds and of a “naturally strong build” — but not athletic, said Lemay. He has short black hair, a chubby face, pointed nose and pointed chin, and is without a beard or moustache. He also has “a summer tan, with a particular olive complexion.” The man was wearing an open black jacket, made of “supple tissue, something like nylon,” said Lemay. Underneath he wore a black T-shirt, possibly emblazoned with a red and gold logo or design. He wore a black cap with a rounded visor that was “personalized to fit the face of the person” and creased black pants. He was also described as looking worried and untidy. Meanwhile police said the Crown attorney’s office has cleared three of the four people originally charged with “indignity to the human body” and

obstructing police, said Sgt. Pierre Lanthier. Police will submit the final results of this investigation to the office in the coming days and the Crown will decide whether the fourth person will be charged, he said. While this person is not related to the death of Leblanc, he or she remains an important witness, said Lanthier.

Gatineau police Sgt. Jean-Paul Lemay explains police are looking for an important witness who was spotted last Tuesday with a bicycle near the scene where Valérie Leblanc’s body was found.

Classes go on despite strike Almost 500 support workers are on strike at Algonquin College, but school officials say classes are going ahead as normal. Talks between management and the Ontario Public Service Employees Union broke down over wages and job security after three days of negotiation. The union represents administrative staff, IT specialists, maintenance workers and non-teaching staff at Ontario’s 24 community colleges. Management offered a 1.5 per cent salary increase for each of the first two years and 1.75 per cent in the third year. The union wants a three per cent annual raise. METRO CONTRIBUTED

New MRIs in Ottawa Valley

@METRONEWS.CA

The Ontario government is funding the installation of two new MRI machines in the Ottawa Valley, one at Queensway Carleton Hospital and another at Pembroke Regional Hospital, Ottawa West-Nepean MPP Bob Chiarelli announced Thursday. The MRI at Queensway is scheduled to operate for 40 hours a week in early 2012, while Pembroke’s MRI will operate in late 2012. METRO

Plans for a special shuttle between the rehab centre at Ottawa General and the hospital’s main bus stop got lukewarm reviews from bus riders at the centre on Thursday. OC Transpo announced the shuttle on Wednesday after the service reduction to the rehab centre bus stop was met with numerous public complaints. The cut to the bus stop, announced this spring, is part of the cost-saving Network Optimization Plan. This Sunday, only Route

106 will service the rehab centre stop and only in the rush hours before 10 a.m. and after 3 p.m. The next closest stop is at the other side of the Ottawa General Hospital campus. The accessible taxi van will run every half hour between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., bringing people to the main Ottawa General Hospital bus stop. Rehabilitation patient Ramesh Saxena found out about the changes when he saw the sign at the rehab stop on Thursday. “It won’t affect me much because I only come here twice a year, but I’m sure it will inconvenience other

people,” he said. Catherine Gardener, chair of the accessibility advisory committee, said the addition of the shuttle is a good thing because it shows the city is willing to compromise on transportation issues, but she still has concerns about the shuttle. “There will still be people going to the rehabilitation centre who are stranded because they can’t get into this taxi,” she said. Some wheelchair users are unable to use that type of accessible van and others will have to wait a long time when there are too many people with wheelchairs, strollers and walk-

ers to fit into the vehicle. The cost of the shuttle will be split between the city and the hospital — also a concern for Gardener. “Health-care dollars should be going to health care,” she said.

Suicide-prevention benefit concert organizers backpedal after publicists deny reports stars attending JOE LOFARO

@METRONEWS.CA

LivingWorks Education Inc. surprised many Wednesday by announcing that U2 front man Bono and actor Colin Farrell would attend the World Suicide Prevention Day concert in Ottawa at Centrepointe Theatre. But it turns out the announcement was erroneous. The London-based company that represents Bono, RMP, said Thursday that Bono is not attending. Farrell’s publicist also said that the report is false. One of the concert’s organizers, Scott Chisholm,

said he was told by the bassist of the Irish rock band Friends of Emmet that Bono would attend. “I don’t know how direct the communication was, but it was confirmed with us through Keith Geraghty of Friends of Emmet that Bono will be coming,” said Chisholm, founder and CEO of Collateral Damage Project, one of the organizers of the event. That tip led to the announcement by LivingWorks stating that both Bono and Farrell would attend the concert as guests. Chisholm acknowledged Thursday that he had a hard time

selling tickets to the event. “That’s the stigma that suicide brings,” he said. “That’s why we need the people in those seats.” Tickets for the concert went on sale at the beginning of August, and City of Ottawa spokesperson Barre Campbell said about 100 tickets had been sold before Thursday. After the Bono announcement, though, the total had risen to 500 less than 24 hours later. Campbell added that the city is accepting requests for refunds, which can be processed over the phone at 613-580-2700, or via ctboxoffice@ottawa.ca.

No refunds have been requested so far, he said. The event, which LivingWorks is presenting, will

But Entourage star is, with Teenage Paparazzo Fans of Entourage’s Adrian Grenier will be able to meet the American actor in Ottawa when he screens his new documentary, Teenage Paparazzo, on Sept. 10. Grenier, who plays Vincent Chase on the hit HBO series, is on a Canadian tour to promote the documentary he directed and wrote, which explores the

rare life of 14-year-old Austin Visschedyk. The teenage shutterbug caught Grenier’s eye one night in Los Angeles and he wanted to understand why the teen was snapping pictures of celebrities. “You really see the culture of Hollywood and how it affects people, and how a lot of people, especially at a

young age, are influenced by it and want to be celebrities,” said Ottawa promoter Michael O’Farrell.

O’Farrell and his team at Marquis Entertainment went after Grenier’s people to bring him to Ottawa to screen the documentary. He saw the film a week ago and said people will love it. The documentary will be screened at the Rainbow Cinema inside the St. Laurent Shopping Centre. After the screening, Grenier

will take questions from the audience alongside the film’s co-producer, Evan Ferranto. Grenier will also attend an afterparty at Mansion and Lobby nightclubs where guests can get a chance to meet the Entourage star and get pictures taken with him.

Cops blasted over Dyke March ‘We all felt safer marching without police present,’ reads Facebook letter NATHANIEL WESTLEY/FOR METRO

AMEN JAFRI

OTTAWA@METRONEWS.CA

The Ottawa Dyke March committee is circulating a letter it sent to police Tuesday morning, condemning officers for their actions during the group’s seventh annual march on Saturday. “Throughout the march, police officers belittled, berated and threatened our marshals and volunteers. Our marshals reported that the police were extremely aggressive towards them,” reads the letter posted on Facebook, addressed to Ottawa police Chief Vern White and Ottawa Police Services Board chair Eli ElChantiry. A Facebook posting asks individuals to re-post the message and to include their names as an undersigned if the letter accurately reflects their own experiences with police.

The Ottawa Dyke March went ahead Saturday despite organizers’ decision not to pay for a permit from police.

Instead of purchasing a $1,500 permit for the march and allowing police to control traffic — as is customary — the committee deliberately left it to its own marshals. They chose not to march with police to respect members of the

community who are threatened by their presence, said committee member Sam Whittle, adding the committee thought it was “a lot of money for one group.” Police attended the march anyway. “In one case, they told

someone that if one of their friends got hit by a car, they would be held responsible,” said Whittle. “It’s really unfair, because that wasn’t our attitude towards them.” El-Chantiry has asked Sgt. John Medeiros, who oversees community diversity and race relations, to look into the matter. “Part of this whole process will look into whether a report was made, and we will speak to the officers who were involved,” Medeiros said. The police have also requested a meeting with the committee. “We have to engage in some kind of dialogue to rectify the situation,” said Medeiros. He recently sent a courtesy email to the chair and vice-chair of the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender Liaison committee, informing them of the matter.

Ottawa-based patent licensing firm Mosaid Technologies Inc. is cutting a deal that could help it defend a takeover bid from an Ottawa-based rival, analysts say. Mosaid will take control of some 2,000 patents and patent applications originally filed by mobile giant Nokia. Under the deal, Mosaid is buying Luxembourg-based Core Wireless Licensing S.a.r.l., which has a portfolio of 400 Nokia patent families, and is paying for the acquisition through royalties from future licensing and enforcement revenues. “This is one of the

strongest standards-essential wireless portfolios available on the market and we are thrilled that we have acquired this outstanding

portfolio and have the opportunity to monetize it,” CEO John Lindgren said in a statement Thursday. The patents are potentially very valuable — with about 1,200 used in 2G, the current 3G and the growing 4G technology, and about 800 wireless implementation patents. Mosaid, currently the target of a hostile, $480-million takeover bid by patentlicensing rival Wi-LAN, said it believes licensing, enforcing and monetizing the wireless portfolio will pull in more money than the company’s total revenues since it was formed in 1975.

Booze, crowding blamed for riot RYAN REMIORZ/THE CANADIAN PRESS

Crowd ballooned out of control prior to Stanley Cup game: Report Communication was lacking Police were in a state of confusion and had lost control of the massive crowd hours before the start of Vancouver’s Stanley Cup Game 7 loss, says a report reviewing the June 15 riot. The report paints a frightening picture leading up to puck drop, with thousands of people unexpectedly packing the city’s downtown, many of them already fuelled with alcohol. The independent review found that instead of being in control, police were forced to react to numerous reports of vandalism and people being forced against barricades. The report’s authors found that co-operation among the Vancouver Police Department and the RCMP had improved significantly since the 1994 riot in Vancouver, but there

Report findings A report on the Vancouver riots found a number of problems, including: Preparedness: Crowd was larger than expected and arrived earlier than police had anticipated. This led to officers being overwhelmed. Communication: Commander’s radio didn’t work, preventing riot police from getting in place. Batteries for loudspeakers also hadn’t been charged.

were still problems. They recommend the creation of a regional tactical squad to deal with large events and a special court be established to deal with suspected rioters.

Arctic shipwreck hands over historic bounty FRED CHARTRAND/THE CANADIAN PRESS

Archeologists diving on a 19th-century shipwreck have brought back a small cache of artifacts they hope will tell them more about the lost Franklin expedition. With youthful enthusiasm, veteran staff from Parks Canada showed off

items plucked from the deck of HMS Investigator just eight metres beneath the freezing Arctic waters. The former merchant ship made two voyages to the Arctic in search of Sir John Franklin’s storied expedition, but was aban-

doned in 1853 after becoming stuck in the once-impenetrable Arctic ice. The ship was found last year in Mercy Bay, off Banks Island in the Beaufort Sea. A team of six divers, including one from the U.S. Parks Service, conducted

Earth’s orbit needs cleaning

Music. Beats

Too much space junk littered around planet: Report High-tech cleaning technology touted as solution NASA/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Space junk has made such a mess of Earth’s orbit that experts say we may need to finally think about cleaning it up. That may mean vacuuming up debris with weird space technology — cosmic versions of nets, magnets and giant umbrellas, according to the chairman of an expert panel that issued a new report on the problem yesterday. There are 22,000 objects in orbit that are big enough for officials on the ground to track and countless more smaller ones that could do damage to human-carrying spaceships and valuable satellites. The International Space Station has to move out of the way of debris from time to time. “We’ve lost control of the environment,” said retired NASA senior scientist Donald Kessler, who headed the National Academy of Sciences report. Since the space age began 54 years ago, civilization has littered Earth’s orbit with leftover parts that come off during launches, as well as old satellites. When scientists noticed that this could be a problem, they came up with agreements to limit new space junk and those plans had been working. Those agreements

One idea making the rounds is of a satellite that is armed with nets that could be sprung on wayward junk.

past four years — a 2007 Chinese anti-satellite weapon test and a 2009 crash-in-orbit of two satellites — put so much new junk in space that everything changed, the report said. The Chinese test used a missile to smash an aging weather satellite into 150,000 pieces of debris larger than fourtenths of an inch (one centimetre), and 3,118 pieces can be tracked by radar on the ground, the report said. The report is from the National Research Council, an independent organization chartered by Congress to advise the government on science. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Baby’s abduction, beating a mystery Attacker released on bail before assault Attempted murder charge dropped due to lack of proof JAMES TURNER

No one will ever know why Nikita Eaglestick abducted a 13-month-old Winnipeg girl and repeatedly smashed her face into the pavement. But the 21-year-old mentally disabled woman now faces the prospect of spending six years in prison after pleading

guilty to child abduction and assault causing bodily harm in connection to the Sept. 1, 2009, attack. The assault “was so horrendous that it’s actually difficult to find words to describe it,” prosecutor Jennifer Mann told Court of Queen’s Bench Justice Deborah McCawley.

The woman ran off and was arrested minutes later. Mann said she couldn’t offer any explanation for the attack, adding Eaglestick was heavily intoxicated. The baby has since made a full recovery.

Let’s go back to work in Libya,

Welcome home, sailors

Sanctions lifted Canadian firms can do business there again

HMCS Charlottetown and her crew of 240 were due to arrive home Friday morning. The frigate left Halifax in March to take part in NATO operations off Libya. It was to arrive in the Halifax dockyard at 10 a.m. Friday. Friends, family members, government ministers and military top brass were preparing to welcome the sailors home. Charlottetown and the military were lauded by Prime Minister Stephen Harper Thursday. He gave them a big pat on the back for helping to rout dictator Moammar Gadhafi.

Canadian companies can go back to work in Libya. Prime Minister Stephen Harper says Canada is lifting the sanctions it imposed on Libya because dictator Moammar Gadhafi is no longer in power. “Canada is taking this first step to remove our unilateral sanctions that were put in place against the Gadhafi regime in order to assist the Libyan people transition justly, safely and securely toward a democracy,” Harper said. Harper’s announcement followed a similar move by the European Union, and comes as he and other world leaders meet in Paris to chart Libya’s future. The sanctions prevented Canadian firms from doing business with the Gadhafi

Dennis DesRosiers noted it has been an unusual year for the auto industry with the Japanese automakers hit hard by the earthquake and tsunami that disrupted their manufacturing and caused shortages for dealerships.

mented, I think we need to wait another year or maybe two to see whether they are sustainable in the medium to long term,” DesRosiers said. Ford Canada chief executive David Mondragon noted that while the Canadian economy is still in a period of recovery, Ford maintained its leadership position for the second consecutive year. It sold 25,927 vehicles in August, its best results for the month in 23 years and up eight per cent from a year ago. Meanwhile, General Motors Canada took the No. 2 position, with 25,045 vehicles sold — a seven per cent increase from the month last year. Chrysler Canada saw the biggest percentage increase in sales among the so-called Detroit Big Three automakers, driven by a doubling in car sales. An 18 per cent increase in Jeep sales also helped the company. David Adams, president of the Association of International Automobile Manufacturers of Canada, noted the growth in sales came as consumer confidence slipped. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Too much buzz, not enough buy

CE. Trade fair

Smartphone use is growing, but mobile e-commerce is slow to take off Tiny screens, security holding it back When it comes to mobile shopping, so far there’s more buzz than buy. As the number of people who use iPhones and other smartphones grows, companies selling everything from hardware to high fashion are touting all the new applications they’re rolling out that allow shoppers to do anything from check a store’s inventory while in the dressing room to ordering

prescriptions. Retailers are betting that selling their wares on a device that people carry around all day can encourage consumers to spend money during an economic downturn. But so far, consumers mostly are using their phones to look up locations and compare prices and stopping short of tapping the “buy” button. Why? In part because they find it hard to shop on the tiny screens and they don’t quite think it’s safe to input their

credit card information into their phone. Mobile purchases are growing faster than online sales, which are increasing at around 10 per cent a year. But mobile commerce is expected to account for $6 billion US, or just two per cent of overall e-commerce sales this year, according to Forrester Research. “The transactions aren’t anywhere close to a big number,” says Siva Kumar, whose company, TheFind, offers mobile price-checking applications. “But the first stage of any revolution is that people start using the new tool.” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Graduates have average debt of $27,000: Canadian student group

Students often take it for granted they will graduate with a “D” for debt after college or university, and worry about having enough money while they’re in school. A third of first-year postsecondary students expect to have significant debt when they graduate, according to a recent RBC Royal Bank poll on student

savings and spending. The poll also found that 54 per cent were worried about having enough money for school. As academic an exercise as it may seem, budgeting can make a difference in terms of students “stressing” about their money, said Kavita Joshi, director of student banking at RBC. Although families can

have different approaches, students can begin to understand the importance of saving and budgeting when they get part-time jobs before they go off to post-secondary education. “If you plan, you can plan to spend,” Joshi said. “That’s the key.” The problem is that not a lot of students stick with budgeting. RBC is reaching out to students on its Facebook page, telling them about student advice seminars in its branches to help them

plan and pay for their education. The bank also has an online tool that students can use called myFinancetracker to track spending in specific areas. The Student Finance 101 Society website, a non-profit and educational site, encourages students to start paying back loans as soon as possible once they've graduated, because an “interest meter” starts ticking even though there’s a six-month grace period before repayments begin. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Budgeting can help students experience less stress when it comes to money.

Everyone liked him. He lived in my old ’hood for a while and every time you saw him with his wife and daughters, he was smiling. That’s what people will remember most about the big redhead from Saskatchewan. His big, permanent smile. Calvin Locke: The singer/songwriter is about halfway through a 100 Day Tour across Canada to raise funds and build awareness for children’s cancer charities. He doesn’t have any gigs booked, but plays spontaneous gigs in random places out of his ’87 Chevrolet Beauville van. Follow Locke’s amazing journey on Twitter @calvinlocke or his website IPlayMusicForPeople.com. Sebastian Bach and Irene: Bach’s New Jersey home that was once featured on MTV Cribs was destroyed during Hurricane Irene. He said on his Facebook page, “I will always love New Jersey but now there is literally nothing left for me here except memories of a past life. Hello, Los Angeles. Hello, New Life.” Uh, Sebastian, not to dissuade you, but have you heard that Cali gets the occasional earthquake? Space Oddity Children’s Book: Canadian illustrator Andrew Kolb has given modern love to a David Bowie song by creating a “concept book” for kids (it could also be an avant-garde coffee table book for adults) based on his classic space epic, Space Oddity. It’s a really neat idea, imagining Bowie’s song in visuals as Kolb does. The free download available at KolbIsNeat.com is temporarily removed due to legal rights around the song, but here’s hoping Bowie’s peeps give permission. Prof Quits Over Parking Spot: Dalhousie University prof Dan Middlemiss quit his job in frustration at the Halifax school after 30 years of teaching because of a severe shortage of parking spaces, a problem that has apparently been ongoing. I once wrote an article for my high school newspaper on my school’s parking problems called The Pain of Parking At Adam Scott. But my parents didn’t let me quit being a student. iPad Made of Wood: A woman in South Carolina purchased an iPad from two men in a McDonald’s parking lot at a discounted rate. When she later opened the FedEx box it was in, she discovered it was just a block of wood with an Apple logo painted on it. Lesson learned: If you’re approached in a McDonald’s parking lot about buying an iPad, first make sure it’s actually an iPad and not just a piece of wood painted black with an Apple logo. Beyoncé’s Twitter Record: Beyoncé’s baby bump reveal at the end of her MTV Video Music Awards performance caused quite a stir on social media, breaking a new Twitter record with 8,868 tweets per second.

Cartoon by Michael de Adder Worth mentioning A visit by a Chinese leader meant to spread goodwill has instead left Hong Kong fuming. In the two weeks since the visit, journalists have taken to the street in protest. Professors have taken out newspaper ads and students demanded the police chief resign. The uproar is the latest clash of cultures between the authoritarian government in Beijing and Hong Kong, the former British colony returned to China’s control but allowed to keep its capitalism, civil liberties and Western-style legal system. Sparking the outrage were the security arrangements put on for Vice Premier Li Keqiang, a rising star in the Chinese leadership. Hong Kong’s vigorous press complained they were kept far away from Li during the few events they were allowed to cover. While such tactics are standard procedure in mainland China, Chinese leaders are usually more careful not to alienate freewheeling Hong Kong. The heavy-handed security has served to heighten concern in Hong Kong that its autonomy is being eroded by a mainland government.

WEIRD NEWS

Airport security is nothing to sniff at What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. The U.S. attorney in Nevada says a German traveller was caught with more than a kilogram (2.2 pounds) of cocaine encased in more than 80 plastic pellets in his digestive system while trying to board a flight from Las Vegas to London. Christopher Adiegwu was indicted Tuesday in federal court on a count of possession of cocaine with intent to

distribute. Arraignment is set for Sept. 9. He faces up to 40 years in prison and a $5-million US fine if convicted. A local TV station reported that U.S. customs agents took note of the 43year-old’s suspicious behaviour at McCarran International Airport and thought he might be smuggling drugs. KTNV-TV says after they searched him and didn’t find anything, they took him to hospital for X-rays, when the pellets were revealed. He was given laxatives to pass the pellets. Court records identify the man as a German citizen and native of Nigeria who was travelling under a visa waiver. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Fall into Oscar season

The serious films of fall are replacing the breezy flicks of summer Richard Crouse and Mark Breslin weigh in on the Academy Award favourites

Richard: Mark, the silly season is pretty much over. That should mean an end to superhero stories, remakes, reboots and reimaginings and a beginning to Oscar season, right? It seems like the studios want to remind us of the balmy days of summer because it appears to me there’s still lots of silly stuff on the way. When I see movies like Paranormal Activity 3 and Johnny English Reborn on the schedule it feels like summer in October. MB: Richard, come on, the theatre owners need to pay their rent. And that

means popcorn sales. Which means sequels, remakes and all the rest. But have no fear! Leonardo DiCaprio will be donning the fat suit to play J Edgar Hoover. What could be more original — and weird — than that, unless it was Bob Dylan starring in a Ben Johnson biopic. Surely there’s some stuff coming up that has piqued your interest... RC: Absolutely. Wedged in between remakes like The Thing are some Oscar contenders like Moneyball, Ides of March, and Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy but I think the movie I’m most

excited to see is My Week with Marilyn. It’s the story of Marilyn Monroe and Laurence Olivier and their tumultuous relationship as they made The Prince and the Showgirl. It’s the kind of turning the camera on itself that Hollywood does really well. MB: That does sound good! I’m most excited about The Descendents, which pairs George Clooney and Alexander Payne, who directed Sideways, in a Hawaii location. I’m also jazzed about David Cronenberg’s new movie, A Dangerous Method,

which imagines a love triangle among Freud, Jung, and a hot female patient. Freud and Jung rarely are seen in the same movie, but Cronenberg’s got a lot of clout these days. Interestingly, these are all autumn releases. The Christmas slate looks kind of tepid to me. What do you think? RC: Tepid! Not with A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas topping my Christmas list. Looks hilarious. On the other end of the scale is The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. If anyone can improve on the originals, it’s David Fincher.

Opening in theatres this Friday is Apollo 18, a found-footage film about what happened when two astronauts made a secret mission to the moon in December of 1973. Also opening in theatres is Shark Night 3D — from Snakes on a Plane director David Ellis. METRO

Kenny Wormald Star of Footloose reboot talks about the pressure of stepping out in Kevin Bacon’s dancing shoes HEIDI PATALANO

SCENE@METRONEWS.CA METRO WORLD NEWS IN NEW YORK

Step aside, Kevin Bacon. Kenny Wormald is about to reinvent what the world thinks of when they hear the word Footloose. Well, actually he’s not that brash. Wormald just wants to make sure he doesn’t dishonour Bacon, who first inhabited the role of Ren MacCormack in 1984’s original dance epic. As a seasoned dancer, the 26year-old Boston native was excited to take on the role for its 2011 reboot, but is holding his breath for the film’s release. “Now that I’ve complet-

ed the film and I’ve seen it, the pressure is more on whether the world is going to accept me as that character,” he says. “But I was a huge fan of the original and I knew how close to the heart people held this film. You just want to do good for them and do good by Kevin [Bacon].” Since Wormald is relatively new on the Hollywood scene, we asked the former dancer for Justin Timberlake a few random questions in order to get to know him better. What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given?

You’ve got two ears and one mouth. You should listen twice as much as you talk.

Marc Anthony told me that when I was dancing for J. Lo. Did Justin Timberlake ever give you good advice?

No he never told me what to do but he showed me through action, how to handle being a megastar…just being a humble dude and keeping your family close and saying thank you to everyone. He is literally loved by everyone around him. That is something that I strive for and I believe that will help you stick around in this business for a long time. If you had to eat at one fast food chain for the rest of your life, which one would it be?

might’ve been by myself one time and changing the channel, it was on again and I watched it. Reality TV is kinda stupid for the most part, but they’re actually talented. Do you have a favourite word?

Lately we’ve been saying, “done.” Like your friend is

calling you saying, “hey bud you wanna go see a movie in 30?” “Done.” …which is now becoming “dunzo.” At a party you’ll find me…

Making the best playlist possible because usually when I go to my friend’s house, the music sucks and I’m immediately trying to get on his iTunes.

Jamie Bell gets animated

The Adventures of Tintin star talks technology and morphing into his childhood hero Says motion capture no different from live action acting

FRED TOPEL, CRAVEONLINE.COM

CHILLING!”

Jamie Bell can handle just about any challenge he can face as an actor. After all, his first role ever was that of the iconic 14 year old dancing savant in Billy Elliot, back in 2000. Earlier this year, he fenced his way through complex fight scenes in icy rivers for the Roman epic The Eagle. And this winter, he will take on one of the most beloved characters of all time using motioncapture technology for The Adventures of Tintin. It would seem that acting with a green screen might be a difficult thing to do, but Bell is quick to dismiss this as any kind of

challenge. “An actor who enters into a motion capture film will bring to the table exactly what they bring to the table in a live action film,” he says. As a young child, the now 25-year-old Brit had loved the Tintin comics, which served as an inspiration to him. Not many people get to see themselves animated into one of their favourite fictional characters from childhood and for Bell, seeing animated scenes from Tintin was a little unsettling. “It’s weird seeing my facial articulations, all that stuff, on another person’s body with another person’s face, but I think that’s only weird to me,” he says.

So long, uncanny valley!

“The uncanny valley thing, which obviously for us to talk about, is death,” says Bell. “An uncanny valley is when the eyes are not engaged in an emotional way. Luckily, they’ve managed to fix that. I feel like people are going to forget what uncanny valley means and that’s what we’re looking for.”

Hollywood’s movie princess Appearing in this fall’s action-thriller Abduction, Lily Collins is proving her acting prowess with some major gigs HEIDI PATALANO

SCENE@METRONEWS.CA METRO WORLD NEWS IN NEW YORK

Maybe call her this year’s Emma Roberts. As the daughter of artist Phil Collins, 22-yearold Lily Collins may have had an inside track to Hollywood stardom, (like Roberts, niece of Julia), but that doesn’t mean her early success was unearned. This fall, Collins will be appearing alongside Taylor Lautner in action-thriller Abduction (Sept. 23rd) and she’s currently shooting one of two Snow White films due to hit theatres next year. She took a moment from the set of the Snow White, currently being shot in Montreal, to chat with Metro. In Abduction you seem to be running from lots of explosions and fires. Did Taylor Lautner have any advice on how to approach the stunt work?

He seems to be quite fearless in life anyway. He’ll just be standing and then all of a sudden he’ll do a back flip because he can do that … He just jumps into

things without being afraid so it kind of motivated me, with my lack of experience, to try to dive into it as well. Tell us about shooting Snow White.

I’ve been in Montreal since the end of May. It’s been long and grueling. Fencing and fight training and wearing costumes that weigh so much every day. It’s a fairy tale every single moment and it’s been incredible. How do you feel about the fact that there’s another Snow White project being shot right now with Kristen Stewart in the same role?

I’m very aware of the other project and I’ve read the script and I know that they’re so different.

A picnic finale

It’s officially the last long weekend of summer Make it count with a delicious yet simple to make picnic of Seafood Salad Rolls, Potato Salad MATTHEW MEAD/ THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEWS CANADA

Both of these recipes make six servings and don’t require much time to prepare.

Tired of the same old picnic food? These two recipes switch things up. The Potato Salad is grilled, while the Seafood Salad Rolls save you money by using imitation lobster.

Grilled Potato Salad Preparation:

1 2

Cut potatoes into 8 wedges each and place in bowl with red peppers. Add oil, basil, rosemary, salt and pepper and toss. Place potato wedges and pepper on greased grill over medium high heat and grill about 20 minutes, turning once or until golden and tender. Remove from grill and thinly slice red peppers; return to bowl with potato wedges.

Dressing: Whisk oil, vinegar, tomatoes and garlic. Pour over grilled potatoes and peppers. Add olives, basil and capers and toss gently to combine. Serve warm or cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days. NEWS CANADA

Seafood Salad Rolls Preparation:

1

Roughly chop shrimp and lobster meat into bite-size chunks. In a large bowl, combine both with smoked salmon. Mix in red pepper, shallot and celery, then set aside.

A storm brews in Bermuda PETER ROCKWELL LIQUIDASSETS@EASTLINK.CA TWITTER: @THEREALWINEGUY

Believe it or not, sometimes I travel without a liquid reason — well, sort of. As you read this, I’m hanging out in a small pub in Bermuda with a large cocktail in hand. Though there are lots of opportunities to buy wine on the island, fermented grape juice is definitely not the national drink. That spot is reserved for an indigenous version of rum, which is deep and dark, yet very wellrounded. Gosling’s Black Seal (750 ml, $26.80 $32.99) has been making magic from sugar cane since 1806 and you can’t visit Bermuda without tasting the mixed drink madness that is a Dark ‘n Stormy. It’s a simple combination of one and a half ounces of Gosling’s Black and ginger beer (a soft drink with a much richer and sharper flavour than ginger ale). In a tall glass filled with ice, add the rum and top with the ginger beer. Garnish with a lemon or lime wedge if (like me) you like a touch of citrus. It’s a bright, spicy cocktail worthy of the British heritage of the island. PRICES REFLECT THE

PATRICK SEMANSKY/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Hockey world looks for answers after deaths

at Camden Yards. With the score six-all, Johnson drew a walk from Willie Eyre (1-1) and Lawrie followed with his seventh home run. Lawrie went 3 for 5 and scored twice. Escobar was 4 for 5 with two RBIs. The four hits matched a career high. Shawn Camp (2-3) finished the seventh inning, Jon Rauch worked a perfect eighth and Frank Francisco got three straight outs for his 12th save. The defeat assured Baltimore (54-81) of a 14th straight non-winning season.

A feeling of disbelief began giving way to introspection as the hockey world sought to come to terms with the loss of a third NHL tough guy in a matter of months. Wade Belak’s apparent suicide in a downtown Toronto hotel and condo sent shockwaves through the hockey community, prompting the NHL and NHL Players’ Association to launch an immediate review of its programs to determine “whether concrete steps can be taken to enhance player welfare and minimize the likelihood of such events taking place.� Belak’s death closely followed those of New York Rangers forward Derek Boogaard and Winnipeg Jets forward Rick Rypien. However, unlike those men, the 35-year-old gave off no signs of trouble prior to being found dead on Wednesday afternoon. “From what I understand right now, there were no warning signs,� NHLPA special advisor Mathieu Schneider said Thursday in an interview. “Maybe we’ll learn something different over the next few weeks. But everyone that I’ve heard from so far is just in shock.� Belak leaves behind wife Jennifer and daughters Andie and Alex. The family will hold a private funeral service in Nashville on Sunday.

Brett Lawrie high-ďŹ ves his teammates in the dugout after hitting a two-run home run on Thursday.

The Titans and Chris Johnson have agreed to terms on a four-year contract extension ending the threetime Pro Bowl running back’s holdout.

Johnson has led the NFL in yards rushing the past three seasons and refused to report to training camp without a new deal. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Lawrie and Johnson homer, Escobar gets 4 hits to lead Jays past Orioles

Brett Lawrie has been in the majors for a month, and the Baltimore Orioles already have seen enough of the kid from Canada. Lawrie hit a tiebreaking two-run homer in the eighth inning, Yunel Escobar had his second straight four-hit game, and the Toronto Blue Jays defeated Baltimore 8-6 on Thursday. Lawrie made his debut at Camden Yards on Aug. 5. Since that time, he leads all rookies in homers (seven), triples (four) and extrabase hits (17). “Lawrie continues to play and swing the bat as good as you can expect,�

acting manager Don Wakamatsu said. Given his .340 batting average, it’s safe to say the Langley, B.C., native has exceeded expectations. “No doubt,� Wakamatsu said. “You can’t sell him short.� Especially when facing Baltimore. Lawrie is batting .417 in six games

against the Orioles, all at Camden Yards. In addition, three of his seven homers and eight of his 20 RBIs have come in Baltimore. “It’s a home away from home. It’s where it all started,� Lawrie said. “We’ll be back here some day.� It will be too soon for the Orioles. “He’s a big ol’ boy,� Baltimore’s Nick Markakis said. “He can swing the stick, no question about that. Their whole team can swing.� Kelly Johnson also homered for the Blue Jays, who had 26 runs and 42 hits in taking two of three

Dare to BE the difference - Join Us! THE SKI PATROL IS LOOKING FOR NEW MEMBERS DO YOU LIKE TO SKI OR SNOWBOARD? INTERESTED IN LEARNING FIRST AID? YOU LIKE HELPING OTHERS? VOLUNTEER AND PAID OPPORTUNITIES AVAILABLE

Five years ago,

when I first joined the Canadian Ski Patrol System (CSPS), I knew the training was handy, but never expected to use my knowledge to help save a life! On my first day of recruit training, I thought: “There’s no way I’ll remember all of this stuff!” But, the 60-hour training course was well planned and ensured success for all who joined in my “rookie” year. At that point, my first aid knowledge was limited to band-aid use. The instructors were well versed and had a vast knowledge of all the material that was covered. I couldn’t believe they were volunteers too. Watching their team work and the camaraderie between them was impressive. If one didn’t know the answer, he looked upon the other instructors in the group for advice. After all was said and done, the 100 multiple choice question final exam and practical diagnostic were completed at the end of November and I scored 100% on both! That was when I decided the system works and wanted to be more involved even more… My Rookie year was the year Ottawa saw 400+cm of snow and the hills in the OttawaGatineau region opened earlier than usual. I skied 42 days that winter, 6 of which were On-Hill training. The on-hill trainer was also very knowledgeable and set me up for success. I feel extremely comfortable in the handles of a toboggan and treating someone on the side of

a ski hill in snow up to my waist or in -40 degree weather. The on-hill training was impeccable! That following spring, I participated in the Assistant Instructor course. This is a 16 hour certification course to ensure you have the right tools and knowledge for effective teaching practises. Last year I took the Instructor course, which is the same idea, but gives more information and delves deeper into adult teaching and learning styles.

Team Work

Just when I thought my training, developing and learning were at their peak, I met a Certified Level III (by the Canadian Ski Instructor Association - CSIA) instructor who took my skiing to the next level. Because of him, I earned the Level II CSIA Instructor Certification. I hope to share with fellow patrollers what I learned and help improve skills just like the Level III instructor did for me. Every August, we instructors recertify on our skills and knowledge. Last year’s lesson was very different. When a gentleman from the public collapsed in the park, we were called to action. Without even thinking, instinct kicked in. After the Ottawa Paramedics took over, I reflected on the system and the training. What I learned in class, on hill and at our annual recertification. I was amazed - the system REALLY works! Because of a fast-acting team I was a part of, and superior training, the gentleman is alive today.

Learning New Skills

When reminiscing on what I have learned, knowledge I have gained, and the fact that it contributed to a chain that saved a life. He lived after being fully ressucitated. I am thankful I Dared to BE the Difference!! Classes start on either Tuesday, September 13th or Saturday, September 17th. Our shortened and modified course for Medical Professionals runs for 4 days in November. Registration for all courses available on our website!
