Sit-in planned to fight tar sands Protesters’ message to Parliament: ‘All people in Canada deserve a clean energy future that promotes climate justice, where treaty and indigenous rights are respected and the health of our communities and environment are prioritized’ JESSICA SMITH

@METRONEWS.CA

A group of environmental activists is preparing to get arrested for participating in a sit-in in the foyer of

Centre Block on Sept. 26, organizers announced in a recent letter to supporters. “We are asking each person to make a personal commitment, to weigh all the factors, and if you feel it is appropriate, to join with peo-

ple from across the country in a peaceful, arrestable civil-disobedience action on Parliament Hill,� the letter to “friends, allies, and supporters� reads. The Council of Canadians, Greenpeace Canada and the Indige-

nous Environmental Network are organizing the sit-in to protest tar sands development. The plan is “to peacefully and responsibly go through the main doors of Parliament to the foyer of Centre Block and sit down,� the let-

Cab-fare increase takes a back seat

JOE LOFARO/METRO

JOE LOFARO @METRONEWS.CA

Cab fares in Ottawa aren’t going up this year after all, the city said Thursday after the local taxi union withdrew its rate-increase request of 10 per cent. The city’s community and protective services committee was set to vote on a recommended 2.5 per cent hike in cab fares

Thursday but the president of the CAW Local 1688 Ontario Taxi Union, Amrik Singh, said he backpedalled for economic reasons. “The economic realities of today are that people are spending less,” said Singh. “This is not the right time for us to ask for (an) increase.... We want to make taxi service af-

fordable as much as possible.” “CAW Local 1688 Ontario Taxi Union has demonstrated they are excellent corporate citizens by withdrawing their request for a fare increase,” said Coun. Mark Taylor, chair of the community and protective services committee in a press release.

Alleged robber gets shot by police officer Shooting comes after a Gatineau police officer fired at a suspect as he allegedly drove at police outside strip club last month JESSICA SMITH/METRO

@METRONEWS.CA

A Gatineau police officer shot a robbery suspect who was fleeing the scene of a break-in, said a spokesperson for the Québec provincial police, which investigates officerinvolved shootings in the province. At about 12:45 a.m. Thursday, police were called to a house on

Chemin de la Savane for a break-in, when they saw a person get into a car and attempt to leave, said QPP Sgt. Ronald McInnis. Then an officer fired his gun and shot the suspect. The suspect got away in a Chrysler Intrepid that had been stolen from the Hull area, he said. “A few minutes later we received a 911 call for somebody who got injured,” said McInnis. “Police officers located

Two of the people who died in a home on Saguenay Street in Gatineau last week were murdered, and the killer, who was a family member, shot himself to death, police said Thursday. Patrick Mongeon-Johnson, 32, shot and killed his mother, 51-year-old Lucie Johnson, and her partner, Denis Lagacé, 59, and then killed himself on the evening of Sept. 7, said police. Their bodies were found two days later, when police made the grisly discovery after getting a call from

minor injury, added McInnis. No gun was found with the suspect and police are not sure if he fired one, McInnis said, as they continued to search the field where the stolen car was recovered and the area around the house where the shooting occurred. The Gatineau police called the QPP to take over the investigation at about 4 a.m., said McInnis.

Ottawa paramedics treated two men for ammonia inhalation at Scotiabank Place Thursday after the chemical leaked near the ventilation system of the building. The building was evacuated at around 12:49 p.m. and when the Ottawa Fire Services hazardous-materials team arrived, the air was assessed and sampled for ammonia. One man, 47, was trapped inside an elevator when the fire alarms were pulled.

He had extreme difficulty breathing from exposure to ammonia and suffered from airway chemical burns, paramedics said. He was treated with high-concentration oxygen. The second man, 55, had an asthma attack due to exposure to ammonia. Paramedics treated him with medication and highconcentration oxygen. Both men were listed in stable condition in hospital. Staff and visitors were allowed back inside at approximately 3:25 p.m. Ottawa police closed Frank Finnigan Way and Cyclone Taylor Boulevard. The roads were reopened at 3:50 p.m. METRO

Velvet LeClair’s arrest resulted from “a girl’s night out gone wrong,” but the arresting officers were not to blame, a lawyer for the Ottawa police said Thursday. Matthieu Charron is representing the Ottawa Police Service and constables Norman Redmond and Mark Talbot in a $50,000 lawsuit brought by LeClair. She alleges she was assaulted during her arrest, then groped and subjected to sexual taunts by a group of officers in the police cellblock. Both officers said they did not recall such comments or conduct. Redmond and Talbot both testified they had pulled over the overcrowded car that LeClair and five friends were taking home after a night out in the

and they arrested her for public intoxication. As they were escorting her to their cruiser, they said LeClair followed them and demanded to know why they were arresting her friend. When LeClair hipchecked Const. Redmond from behind, they said, she was arrested for obstructing a police officer. LeClair resisted, they said, and the officers each grabbed one of her arms and pinned her to the police car to handcuff her before driving both women to the police station. A third woman in the car, Adrienne Gowing, was also arrested. She testified yesterday that she was repeatedly denied a phone call, manhandled and verbally abused by police. Lawyers for both sides are to make final arguments Friday.

some of LeClair’s time in the cellblock in 2007 is of poor quality, and police argue, in their defence of her $50,000 lawsuit, that they only used “reasonable force” to quell what they say was violent resistance to a mandatory search. LeClair testified about being raped years before her arrest and also spoke about becoming hysterical in police custody.

Capital named one of the worst-dressed cities in the world Orlando and Maui top dubious rankings The very worst

@METRONEWS.CA

It’s a dark day for our city when the Jersey Shore is ranked as “better dressed” than Ottawa — albeit not by very much. A list of the “worstdressed cities in the world” compiled by MSN Travel put Ottawa as the eighth worst and ranked Jersey Shore — known for people with “unnaturally orange tans” and “instantly flammable, shellacked hair” — 10th. (Not to mention that Jersey Shore is not a city, but a geographic area.) “As a city populated by

fashion effort is made. Everyone looks like they’re frozen in the 1980s,” the scathing fashion review of Ottawa reads. “Men sport the same boring navy suits that hang like shapeless curtains across their shoulders, women choose sensible shoes, sedate colours and are unremarkably respectable.... Quite frankly, it’s perhaps the least sexiest city in Canada.” If there is one bright spot, Ottawa ranked better than Vancouver — which was skewered for bringing yoga pants to the world.

Judith, the youngest, works for the foundation’s international wing. Darrell, the former director of the foundation, now works for the Terry Fox Research Institute, which supports cancer research projects.

For decades, the Fox family has shared the story of Terry’s determination and courage. After losing a leg to bone cancer, he left his home near Vancouver for St. John’s in the spring of 1980. From there, the 21year-old ran nearly a marathon a day for 143 days, but was forced to stop outside Thunder Bay when cancer recurred in his lungs. He died the next summer. Family matriarch Betty Fox played the largest role in preserving her son’s memory, said Fred Fox. This year’s Sept. 18 run marks the first since she died in June. “It hasn’t quite sunk in yet.

The Terry Fox spirit lives on in 11-year-old cancer survivor On Sunday, thousands will remember Fox, the 21-year-old who had a goal: To run across Canada Local events will take place coast to coast Jason Ayer was just seven years old when he was diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumour, but the Toronto boy still remembers the exact day he heard the news: Thursday, Nov. 8, 2007. Through 71 weeks of chemotherapy, he said thoughts of Terry Fox and his goal to run across Canada with a prosthetic leg helped keep his spirits up. “Terry has been my hero,� Jason said.

“He didn’t let his cancer get in his way. “I was going through a little bit of the same thing (as Terry). I didn’t have to get my limb amputated but I did have to go through the pain and chemotherapy.� Now in remission, the 11-year-old is sharing his story with students in the Toronto area in advance of the annual Terry Fox Run, the largest single-day cancer fundraiser in the world.

“Jason is so personable. He is willing to speak about (his cancer) — and not afraid.� FRED FOX, BROTHER OF TERRY FOX

It’s a role Terry’s brother Fred Fox is glad young Jason is brave enough to play. “It’s so important to have cancer survivors out there to share their journey and show that research does work. They’re

the living proof of the progress that’s being made,� Fox said. “Not many are that comfortable speaking about their experience, but Jason is so personable. He is willing to speak about it — and not afraid.� Jason tells how he celebrated when he went into remission on June 6, 2009. “We had a big street party. We got a fireman to come and a magician and a bouncy castle,� he said. TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Mulcair gains support JACQUES BOISSINOT/THE CANADIAN PRESS

NDP caucus splintering into rival leadership camps Vote in March Two Quebec MPs are urging Thomas Mulcair to go for the NDP leadership, creating the impression of a draft movement for the Montreal MP. Mulcair has claimed to have the support of “a very large majority” of the party’s 59-member Quebec caucus, although he has yet to formally declare his candidacy. Francois Lapointe and Jamie Nicholls emerged from an NDP caucus retreat Thursday to lend credence to that claim. “The person I’ve chosen to support is Thomas Mulcair,” announced Nicholls, a Montreal MP. “He’s somebody who’s been very supportive to the Quebec caucus. He has helped us in so many ways.” Nicholls said there’s “a

groundswell of support” for Mulcair. “Within the caucus, I've talked to a few people and they’re ready to support Tom.” Similarly, Lapointe urged Mulcair to take the plunge, calling him an “exceptional” parliamentarian. Until now, most Quebec MPs have said they’re waiting to see who enters the race before deciding whom to support. Both Lapointe and Nicholls denied they were asked to make public professions of support. A third Quebec MP, Claude Patry, later said he too supports Mulcair. And a fourth, Robert Aubin, said he’s strongly inclined to support Mulcair, whom he credited with getting him elected. Another prospective candidate, British Columbia

NDP MP Thomas Mulcair refused Tuesday to confirm his candidacy for the leadership of the party.

MP Peter Julian, also won an endorsement Thursday, from Windsor MP Brian Masse. So far, party president Brian Topp is the only declared candidate. He has already racked up an impressive roster of endorsements, starting with party icon Ed Broadbent and Quebec MP Francoise Boivin.

Greenpeace celebrates 40 years Four decades ago, a group of environmentalists boarded a former fishing vessel in Vancouver and set off toward Alaska, sailing up the West Coast to protest planned nuclearweapons testing by the United States. The ship, which was christened the Greenpeace, was intercepted by the U.S. navy and never reached the Alaskan island of Amchitka. But the stunt generated a barrage

of media attention. The group, which long ago adopted the name Greenpeace, is returning to Vancouver this week to mark its 40th anniversary. “The remarkable thing about 40 years is that the organization is still standing — and not only is it standing, it’s thriving,” says Greenpeace International’s executive director, Kumi Naidoo, who will be on hand for the anniversary.

U.K. raises barrier to prosecuting war criminals Britain has amended a law Thursday to make it tougher for ordinary citizens or activist groups to get arrest warrants against suspected war criminals or torturers â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a move that angered some human rights lawyers and activists. Britainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s universal jurisdiction law allows British courts to prosecute foreigners accused of crimes against humanity, no matter where the alleged crimes were committed. The principle of

International law Although universal jurisdiction is a concept in international law, British judges have been more open to the concept than those in other countries.

the law is rooted in the belief that certain crimes â&#x20AC;&#x201D; such as genocide, hostagetaking and torture â&#x20AC;&#x201D; are so serious that they must be addressed anywhere it is possible to do so. Under the new amendment ratified Thursday, private citizens can still pursue arrest warrants, but the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chief prosecutor must approve them. Justice Secretary Kenneth Clarke said the change will ensure that â&#x20AC;&#x153;the balance is struck between ensuring those who are accused of such heinous crimes do not escape justice and that universal jurisdiction cases are only proceeded with on the basis of solid evidence.â&#x20AC;? In the past, attempts have been made to obtain warrants to arrest visiting foreign dignitaries such as Henry Kissinger, Chinese Trade Minister Bo Xilai and Tzipi Livni, former foreign minister and now leader of the opposition in Israel.

Cruise ship fire kills 2 Sabotage was not suspected â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Our suspicion is that there was an explosion in the machine room,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Norwegian acting police chief said SVEIN OVE EKORNESVAG/SCANPIX/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

An â&#x20AC;&#x153;intenseâ&#x20AC;? fire in a cruise shipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s engine room killed two crewmen Thursday, injured nine others and forced over 200 passengers to evacuate a popular cruise off Norwayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s western coast. Police suspect an accidental on-board explosion. Thick black smoke billowed from the stern of the boat, the MS Nordlys, even before it pulled into the dock at Aalesund, 375 kilometres northwest of the capital of Oslo. Police sealed off parts of the town as the smoke engulfed nearby buildings.

The shipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s emergency evacuation began after the fire started at 9 a.m., with more than 100 passengers piling into lifeboats in the frigid waters. The rest of the shipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 207 passengers and 55 crew were evacuated at the dock at Aalesund, with some crew staying on board to fight the fire. Aalesund Hospital said nine people had been admitted, two with serious burns and smoke injuries. Police said all of the injured and dead were members of the shipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crew.

French President Nicholas Sarkozy, centre, and British Prime Minister David Cameron, back left, greet people gathered in a square during their visit to Benghazi, Libya, on Thursday.

Libyans open their arms to western leaders Visit gives boost to leadership of New Transitional Council Release of assets to help beat loyalist forces British Prime Minister David Cameron and French President Nicolas Sarkozy offered broad support for Libya’s new rulers Thursday, promising to unfreeze billions in assets and help in finding Moammar Gadhafi, even as revolutionary forces attempted their first significant assault on the ousted leader’s hometown. The western leaders — the first to visit since Tripoli fell late last month — got a welcome worthy of rock stars from jubilant Libyans grateful for NATO airstrikes that helped turn the tide of the war in their favour. Staff at a hospital in Tripoli applauded the two men as they visited wounded patients. Schoolchildren in Benghazi wore T-shirts that said “Generations will never forget the favours and support from Great Britain” and “Sarkozy:

Benghazi loves you.” But tight security in both cities was a reminder of the fact that Gadhafi is still on the run and his supporters are holding out in three major strongholds, including his hometown of Sirte. Gadhafi’s spokesman, Moussa Ibrahim, chided the foreign leaders for their short trip, claiming that pro-Gadhafi fighters “are everywhere.” He told the Syrian al-Rai TV station, “This visit by Sarkozy and Cameron is a launch of an imperialist project in Libya.” Ibrahim did not say where he was, nor where Gadhafi was hiding. In a surprise advance, revolutionary forces entered the outskirts of Sirte, 400 kilometres southeast of Tripoli along the Mediterranean coast, on Thursday and were facing rocket fire, according to a member of

the military council from the city of Misrata, which was leading the assault. Cameron acknowledged the fight wasn’t over and pledged NATO would continue to support the antiGadhafi fighters. He said his message for Gadhafi and those fighting for him was: “It is over. Give up.” Britain and France led international support for the rebellion. This could put the two countries in a good position to cash in on lucrative trade and oil business. Sarkozy denied any hidden agenda. “We did what we had to do because we believed it was the right thing,” he said. The visit also gave a high-profile stage for Cameron and Sarkozy to boost their images at home amid domestic woes fuelled by sluggish economies. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

A rebel fighter flashes a victory gesture at a checkpoint at the northern gate of Bani Walid, Libya.

Libyan assets So far, the UN has approved the unblocking of about $6 billion US from banks in the U.S., Britain and France. A spokeswoman for the British prime minister, who spoke on condition of anonymity in line with policy, said a new United Nations Security Council resolution authorizing the release of all frozen Libyan assets has support of all five permanent members.

NATO, rebels fight on NATO forces continue to go after the holdout loyalist forces in Libya. Airstrikes hit 24 targets on Wednesday, including several radar systems and surface-to-air missile systems near Sirte, Bani Walid and Sabha as well as smaller holdouts Waddan and Zillah, the alliance said. Revolutionary forces entered Sirte’s outskirts Thursday in a surprise advance on the pro-Gadhafi city, fighting resistance from loyalists. Ali Gliwan, a member of the rebel military council, said fighters crossed a ma-

jor highway overpass at the southwestern entrance of the city, and were met by rocket fire from Gadhafi loyalists. The fighters advanced into the city centre, clashing with snipers and with members of an elite unit of Gadhafi troops barricaded in a leader’s residence, Gliwan said. He reported four fighters on his side had been killed and seven wounded. Gadhafi’s whereabouts remain a mystery, but his loyalists hold various pockets in central and southern Libya. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Analysts estimate that as much as $110 billion is frozen in banks worldwide. Britain has also won approval from the UN sanctions committee on Libya to release a further $950 million immediately to fund public-sector salaries. Britain will also offer funds for weapons decommissioning, mine clearance, medical assistance for those with grave combat injuries, and specialist help in locating and secure chemical weapons.

St. Thomas factory shut down 27th Ford plant closed since 2008 The Ford assembly plant in St. Thomas, Ont., closed Thursday after four decades and some eight million vehicles. With closure, the last of 1,200 employees were thrown out of work. A decade ago, there were about 3,600 union members at the factory. The final sedan rolled out of the plant and with it the end of a 44-year history that included building Fairmonts, Pintos, Mavericks and other autos. The plant had been building full-sized sedans

such as the Lincoln Town Car and Crown Victoria, but sales had fallen steadily for years. The workers have known since 2009 that the plant would close, but they had hoped it would stay open. The union and Ford have worked out compensation packages. A Ford spokesman said the company remains committed to Ontario, having recently invested in its engine plant in Windsor and its assembly plant in Oakville. THE CANADIAN PRESS

BlackBerry profits take a nosedive OLIVER LANG/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

expected $4.5 billion US in revenue and a profit of 90 cents per share. The technology firm based in Waterloo, Ont., announced earlier this year 2,000 job cuts, or about 11 per cent of its global workforce in a bid to cut costs in a highly competitive smartphone market. A year without a brand new BlackBerry launch hurt the Canadian technology icon, analysts said, as rival Apple and Google’s Android devices picked up ground. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Housing market steady: Analysts The global economic turmoil that roiled stock markets around the world in August did little to dampen the Canadian housing market, which continued to show strong gains in sales and prices. Analysts expressed surprise on Thursday that the wildly volatile swings on North American, European and Asian stock markets had little impact on housing, which for many years has been a pillar of economic growth in Canada. While many analysts had expected a big slump — as Canadians felt poorer because of the stock losses and worried about a weak global economy — sales of resale houses remained steady and prices rose. The figures, released by the body that represents the bulk of Canadian real

estate agents, suggest that the housing sector — propped up by low mortgage rates and solid regional economies — will continue to drive growth in the national economy. For years, housing has been a big job creator across Canada and has helped boost appliance, furniture, hardware and the retail sectors. The Canadian Real Estate Association’s August resale housing report showed sales of existing homes maintained the same levels seen in July and increased significantly from the same month the year before. New listings also remained steady, the association said, adding the number of balanced local real estate markets is currently the highest on record. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Research In Motion Ltd. reports its profit plunged by more than half in the second quarter, falling short of analyst expectations. The BlackBerry maker, which keeps its books in U.S. dollars, reports second-quarter net earnings of $329 million US or 63 cents per diluted share on $4.17 billion in revenue. That compared with a profit of $797 million or $1.46 per share on $4.62 billion a year ago. Analysts’ estimates compiled by Thomson Reuters had on average

Kienan Hebert: “OMG I can confirm that Kienan Hebert was returned by suspect @ around 3 a.m.” That was the shocking NEIL MORTON tweet sent out by RCMP METRO spokesman Dan Moskaluk Sunday saying that three-year-old Sparwood, B.C., boy Kienan Hebert was brought home safe. Randall Hopley allegedly abducted him five days earlier in a case that gripped the nation. Miracle. SYTYCD cancelled: Fans were shocked this week when it was announced CTV ratings-winner So You Think You Can Dance Canada, which showcased the country’s vibrant young dance community, was being canned. This on the heels of the finale of Season 4, which Jordan Clark, 19, of Tottenham, Ont., won. Time to bring back Electric Circus (or EC, as so many fans knew it). The Sound of Silence: Paul Simon’s beautiful The Sound of Silence, written in 1964 in the aftermath of the assassination of JFK, took on a whole new meaning for both an older and newer generation when he sang it on the 10th anniversary of 9-11 at Ground Zero. The song was perhaps the poignant moment of the tribute, and already has over a million views on YouTube. For some, it will now be the 9-11 memorial song. Anderson: It’s RidicuList how busy Anderson Cooper is: He’s behind the anchor chair and jetsetting around the world covering world events for CNN’s AC 360, and now he has a new daytime talk show. Anderson debuted this week, where the pop-culture junkie takes off his tie and sits on a sofa to interview guests (Snooki!). Sounds promising as long as he doesn’t start channelling Maury Povich. Get to Know Your Community — Ride a Bike: Fall’s a great time to be a tourist in your own Canadian community, to explore spots you wouldn’t normally visit. And what greener way to do so than on a bike? For inspiration, check out the new Get to Know Your Community — Ride a Bike poster at jacksoncreek.ca. Online dating study: According to an online dating study released this week by WhatsYourPrice.com, women “in general prefer to date men who are approximately six years older than they are, but who are less than 10 years older.” I’m only a year older than my wife. No wonder she says I’m immature. Madonna and hydrangeas: Last week, Madonna dissed a fan who gave her hydrangeas at a Venice Film Festival press conference. “I absolutely loathe hydrangeas. He obviously doesn’t know that,” she whispered in a moment caught on tape that went viral on the interwebs. Her response this week? A tongue-incheek Madonna’s Love Letter to Hydrangeas on YouTube. Nice apology, Material Girl. Steve Nash: Steve Nash opened the Toronto Stock Exchange this week for a health company he has partnered with, Liquid Nutrition, which will be opening more franchises here. Apparently everyone there wanted a piece of Nash. Let’s see: Nash is Canadian, an NBA star, fights obesity, has a charitable foundation, an Order of Canada, a star on Canada’s Walk of Fame, is articulate and has 615,000 Twitter followers. Steve Nash for prime minister.

Cartoon by Michael de Adder Worth mentioning Yes, it could happen. But it’s a stretch. Contagion, a Hollywood thriller that opened last weekend, rocketed to No. 1 at the box office through its gripping tale of a fictional global epidemic driven by a new kind of virus. Audiences have gasped in horror at what happens to Gwyneth Paltrow. Before it was out, the movie made real-life disease investigators anxious, too, though for a different reason: They had worried the filmmakers would take so many artistic liberties with the science that the result would be an incredible movie that was ... not credible. Well, cue the applause. “It’s very plausible,” said Dr. Thomas Frieden, head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which would investigate such an outbreak. A new virus jumping from animals to humans? Nothing fictional about that. Global spread of a disease in a few days? In this age of jet travel, absolutely. A societal meltdown if things get bad? Plan on it.

WEIRD NEWS

No need to say ‘rhymes with China’ anymore Celebrities are gabbing about it openly. A growing number of grooming products cater to it. And a recent TV commercial hails it as “the cradle of life” and “the centre of civilization.” A generation that grew up with more graphic language and sexual images in the media is forgoing the decades-old practice of tiptoeing around female genitalia. The new freedom to talk about the

vagina comes as marketers spend more to get women to buy products for the area. “Vajazzling” — gluing on sparkly gems such as Swarovski crystals to jazz up a bikini wax — became a phenomenon last year when Jennifer Love Hewitt mentioned it on the former TBS talk show Lopez Tonight. Bettybeauty Inc. sells pubic hair dye, ranging in colours from black, brown and blonde to hot pink. Some women are looking to cover grey hair, while others just want a fun colour, the founder says. “When I came out with it, there was this kind of burst of, ‘Oh my god, you solved our problem. I didn’t realize how much grey hair was down there.” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Ryan Gosling puts in a stellar performance in Drive.

Scene in brief

A strong, silent type Ryan Gosling is an intriguing man of few words in the action-packed Drive Film is a tension-filled, artfully shot escape, with a great soundtrack to boot Metro World News Hollywood Correspondent Ned Ehrbar sits in for Mark Breslin this week. Richard: Ned, Gosling isn’t the easy charmer of Crazy, Stupid, Love, he plays Driver like a coiled spring. There hasn’t been a leading man this closemouthed since Rudolph Valentino was the king of the silent screen. He’s a man of very few words, but his silence hints at an active inner life and his actions certainly speak to having a past. It’s a brave and strange performance, either emotionally shut down, or simply cool-as-acucumber, take your pick. Ned: Definitely the strong silent type. But I guess if

your best friend is a scheming, motor-mouthed deadbeat like Shannon (Bryan Cranston), you learn to keep your mouth shut. The expression Gosling has on his face most of the time seems just as likely to turn in to a smirk or have him burst into tears, making him fascinatingly impossible to read. But he certainly knows when to put his foot down, so to speak. As electrifying as Gosling’s toothpickchewing Driver is, the performance that impressed me the most was Albert Brooks as former movie producer and current mob boss Bernie Rose. I never thought the sight of the star of Lost in America would fill me with dread,

but there you go. RC: Albert Brooks walks away with the movie in his blood stained hands. Gosling, Mulligan and Bryan Cranston are all great, but the character you remember is the exmovie producer-turnedgangster Rose. He delivers what may be the best bad guy line of the year. When Gosling’s character refuses to shake his hand because his hands are dirty from working Rose says, “So are mine.” Great stuff. NE: The only real criticism I’d make of Brooks is his performance makes Ron Perlman’s character, Rose’s less well-spoken partner Nino, stand out for

being so conventional. But that’s really about the only complaint I can put against the film. Every shot is artfully composed, and the tension-filled sequences of Gosling waiting for his getaway driving gigs to begin will make you reconsider how long you can hold your breath. And the music — I’ve been listening to the soundtrack every day since it was released last week. RC: It’s funny that a movie that values silence so much — there are l-o-n-g pauses in the dialogue — has such a great soundtrack, but there you go, just another surprising thing about an unconventional but intriguing movie.

JASON STATHAM: Fancy film star Clive Owen has met his match. Going up against Clive Owen: That’s a good day at the office, right? Yeah, he’s a real intense individual. He takes his work very seriously. The whole movie sets itself up where we never, ever come face to face. It’s like this cat-and-mouse game. I don’t want to be doing what I’m doing, I don’t want to see this guy, I want to get in and out, get the situation taken care of it and get out, and he’s just got to be the man to stop that happening. So when he gets a hold of me, it’s a bit of an intense situation. We both have a lot of different sort of films behind our backs, and he’s got such great respect and such great critical acclaim. You know, I’ve done stuff that’s appealing to a different audience, and hopefully we’ll get the two to come together.

CLIVE OWEN: I will kill Jason Statham with kindness. Going up against Jason Statham: It’s actually a pleasure doing those big fight scenes with someone like Jason because he’s so experienced. He’s technically really gifted and really good at them. You know, I’m pretty good technically with those fights. I’ve done quite a bit of them myself. You can really commit, but you know that there’s an understanding and an element of safety. There is a moral ambiguity in that [Killer Elite] is not about good guys and bad guys. When they do come together, you want to see a bit of fireworks. [Real tough guys] are much more low-key than you would think. They don’t strut around, they don’t act tough.

Disney has gone back into their vaults and dusted off their 1991 classic The Lion King and given it a 3D overhaul, releasing it to screens anew. The film looks and sounds incredible but it’s not necessarily the audio/ visual razzle dazzle that might strike many parents. Rather, compared to the studio’s more recent, considerably sunnier fare like Toy Story, Bolt and Tangled, The Lion King is a much darker affair than you might recall. Something Jack can attest to. Jack is my 4-and-a-halfyear-old son, and I decided

to take him along to the press screening, further exemplifying the ‘circle of life’ theme of the film itself. I vividly recall watching The Lion King as a kid, the last gasp of my childhood before adolescence consumed me whole and “cartoons” ceased to have appeal. So sitting in that darkened theatre, Jack by my side, was surreal and rather lyrical, both of us humbled before massive projected 3D images of illustrated African savannah, tumbling fauna, stoic royal felines and red eyed predators. Jack was rightfully awed…but also more than a little bit upset. Maybe it was the core

Screenwriter Aline Brosh McKenna is like the McDonald’s of female friendly rom-coms. She churns ‘em out good and regular and the meals always taste about the same. They go down easy and leave you greasy. But in this romcom factory, sometimes

the deep-fryer’s not working just right and you’re left with the tepid mush that all these films really are. This is a film based on the book by the same name, written by Allison Pearson. By most accounts it was a palatable story about a hard-working mom whose demanding job sometimes puts her at odds with mommy duties. Translated to 90 minute short-hand, it becomes a screechy, silly caricature that leaves little room for subtlety.

There are a lot of remakes out there that never should’ve happened. However, Straw Dogs won’t fall under that category. Although in its new incarnation, it will be demoted from the classic status that the original 1971 version had, this pulpier take poses a strong argument for being relevant, at least for two weeks in the box office. James Marsden and Kate Bosworth play arrogant, Hollywood ex-pats hoping to enjoy some peace while renovating a house

and barn where the wife (Bosworth) grew up in Blackwater, Miss. Aleksander Skarsgaard plays a polite but mildly threatening ex-boyfriend who is contracted to rebuild their roof. As the L.A. couple’s very un-Southern ways grate on the locals, something sinister begins to encroach on their once-happy marriage.

Going for broke

RICHARD CARTWRIGHT/CBS/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Beth Behrs and Kat Dennings: Two budding stars ready to rock new sitcom 2 Broke Girls premieres Monday on Citytv and CBS As their interview takes place in late July, Beth Behrs and Kat Dennings can count a grand total of one week spent working together. That was when they filmed the pilot for 2 Broke Girls â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and that was in April. But joining a reporter for breakfast at Melâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

Drive-in, a Valley landmark, they share laughs and a chemistry that seems years in the making â&#x20AC;&#x201D; just as they do on their sassy new comedy as struggling waitresses at a Brooklyn greasy spoon. While waiting for production to resume in early August, they solidified

their friendship. Kat: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been checking in with each other every few days.â&#x20AC;? Beth: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll randomly text Kat about something Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m watching on TV in the middle of the night: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;You need to see this!â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;?

Orders are taken. Kat calls for wheat toast and, more urgently, a cup of joe. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nectar!â&#x20AC;? she rejoices when the coffee arrives. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not bad.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like diner coffee,â&#x20AC;? Beth agrees as her cellphone sounds off. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh, gee,â&#x20AC;? she sighs after checking the number displayed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This guy has been calling me all morning. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say my name on my message, so maybe he thinks Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m someone else. He keeps leaving these intense, long messages.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Let me do it, let me do it!â&#x20AC;? says Kat, eagerly snatching the phone and, in the guttural tone of a longshoreman, growling into it: â&#x20AC;&#x153;WHAT!!! Who IS this? WRONG number! NEVER call again!!!â&#x20AC;? They both dissolve into laughter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That makes me SO happy!â&#x20AC;? Kat giggles. On 2 Broke Girls, their characters will form a similar bond. But not instantly. First, they have to size each other up. Kat plays sarcastic, street-wise Max Black, who, to make ends meet, must work two jobs, one of which is the night shift at

Beth plays chic Caroline Channing, whose ritzy Upper East Side lifestyle has abruptly come undone after her money-manager father got busted for financial shenanigans. Like Max, Caroline is now broke, too, and is seeking refuge at the diner waitressing alongside Max, who warily receives her not only as a co-worker but as a flat-mate, too. So not only is 2 Broke Girls a buddy comedy, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a fish-out-of-water sitcom, with Caroline the Brooklyn-beached fish. In playing their roles, they both speak of trying to avoid stereotypes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Caroline is a girl who

Debbie Harry and Blondie move forward

JEFF GENTNER/GETTY IMAGES

Band has new album out this month Set to go on tour during fall Looking forward to performing new material Few would call Debbie Harry a geek, but the gorgeous Blondie singer has no problem with technology. In fact, she’s always embraced electronic innovation. “That’s part of our business, really,” Harry said. “We rely on technology to produce our music and perform concerts. A lot of our instruments are tied to computer or synthesizer technology. “The change from analog to digital, that was a big change. But it’s sort of more natural in a way; it’s the way the brain actually operates, instead of the old mechanical way. I don’t feel like a Luddite in any way.” Personal evolution is important, too; so the

On the web Panic of Girls is exclusively available through Amazon. Debbie Harry explains the partnership: “Because we’re independent, we don’t have any distribution — so it’s an ideal situation for us. On a personal level, I’ve been dealing with Amazon as a consumer for a long time. Anytime I’ve gotten anything from Amazon, it’s been quick and painless.”

band’s fall tour is not about revisiting their splendid hit songs like Heart of Glass or Dreaming. The New York Citybased new wave pop veterans’ new album, Panic of Girls, is out this month to

add new sounds. “I think that’s the best part of it,” Harry says of recording a new album. “We are in a very cushy position, because we are well known. But going around playing the older hits and everything wouldn’t be, oh, I don’t know … it just wouldn’t be as inspiring or interesting as trying to make new music. “Let’s face it: As our lives change, our experiences change and our insights improve. It’s more relevant to sing or talk about things that are happening today. “The world is changing so quickly. The difference in communications since the Internet came into being — the world is so different now and we’re a part of it.” METRO

METRO NEW YORK SCENE@METRONEWS.CA

Los Angeles-based group Lifehouse burst onto the scene in 2001 with Hanging By A Moment, the first single off their debut album No Name Face, and since then, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve recorded four more albums and have another in the works. We spoke to lead singer Jason Wade about his writing process, the new album and how heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spending his off-stage time in Beantown. So how has your sound changed since your earlier material?

And that can be tiring and wearing on you as well. You always feel that you are just bleeding on this canvas for everybody to analyze, so it was refreshing not using my own relationships for the world to see.

It is going good. We are just in the process now of doing demos and I am transitioning into writing more by

myself and channelling some of the earlier Lifehouse music. I really donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to put too much pressure on it and rush it and just make a record like our previous albums just because they did well.

BEIJING, China — When you’re deep in the bowels of economy class, a 12hour flight across the Pacific is not pleasant. I was about five hours out of San Francisco when the hallucinations kicked in. As deep vein thrombosis clotted my blood and the Brazilian sleeping pill did something other than put me to sleep, I ended up conducting a question-andanswer session with myself. Here’s what I remember.

Well, at least they still sell things that look like milk crates. Why do people keep giving money to Madonna to direct films?

Why haven’t there been more songs written about 9-11? I mean, that was a defining moment for so many things.

Given the reviews of W.E., they won’t anymore. Best go back to fulfilling the obligations of that $120million deal with Live Nation. Time to go on the road again, dear.

Other than The Rising by Bruce Springsteen, Let’s Roll from Neil Young and a couple of country songs, the events of that day haven’t really been captured in song. The trauma may have been too great.

Hasn’t anyone had enough of U2 by now?

Aren’t people tired of hearing Gary Glitter’s Rock and Roll, Part 2 at sporting events? And Crazy Train? And Are You Ready for This?

After a less-than-successful album, a two-year world tour and a documentary at TIFF, all that’s left for 2011 is a reissue of Achtung Baby. There may be four albums’ worth of material in the works, but they really need to go away to dream things up again.

Jay-Z has 99 problems and his children are one Rapper reportedly paid former lover to not disclose he fathered her child ALL PHOTOS GETTY IMAGES

Jay-Z is happily expecting a child with wife Beyoncé, but it may not be his first. Star magazine is reporting that the 41-year-old hip-hop icon fathered a love child with model Shenelle Scott nine years ago, before he and Beyoncé were an item. Jerard Andrews, the father of the man who was previously believed to be the child’s father, says DNA tests have concluded Jay-Z’s paternity. “Shenelle told me that Jay-Z gave her $1 million to keep her mouth shut. My understanding is that he’s paying her child support,” Andrews says. “Shenelle took the money and bought herself a really nice house in Trinidad that the whole family lives in now.”

He has an enormous amount of respect for her.” As it turns out, work got in the way this time around. “She’s very busy with her career,” the source says. “And he’s had injuries and wants to focus on his game. They’re dedicated professionals.”

FBI looking into hacked cell The FBI is reportedly on the case of who hacked Scarlett Johansson’s phone and leaked nude photos of the actress online, according to Fox News. The photos surfaced online this week, and TMZ reports that Johansson made the request for the FBI investigation herself. The Feds are reportedly already investigating more

than 50 other cases of celebrity phone and e-mail hacking. Johansson’s lawyers have been furiously sending removal notices to any websites posting the images. Despite that, the photos have been widely populating gossip and celebrity sites the past two days. METRO

Honouring Star Wars PETER ROCKWELL LIQUIDASSETS@EASTLINK.CA TWITTER: @THEREALWINEGUY

I remember when I saw Star Wars. I was a kid on vacation with my parents and we went to a theatre in Brewer, Maine to witness what would arguably become the biggest revenue generating stream in movie history. This walk down memory lane is brought to you by todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s release of the Blue-ray versions of all six Star Wars movies. I need them like I need another corkscrew, but giving George Lucas money is an addiction I just canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to kick. Even though Darth Vader is only a child with poor acting skills in The Phantom Menace, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve chosen a brooding wine to supplement my pursuit of this ultimate version of what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve already seen a hundred times. Chile is cabernet country and the ViĂąa ErrĂĄzuriz 2009 Max Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon ($16.85 $19.99) is powerful for the price, packing a youthful punch of deep berry fruit, smoky oak and chewy tannins. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great with steak and its flavour force stays with you. PRICES REFLECT THE RANGE ACROSS

Many may not realize how international their daily meals are. Ketchup was developed from a Chinese sauce but got its name in Malaysia. Mustard began with the Romans but assumed its present form in France. Add to that list chutney, a condiment Europeans discovered in India that has become popular worldwide. It usually consists of chopped fruits, vinegar, spices and sugar cooked into a chunky spread. Nonsweet vegetables such as peppers, onion and garlic can also be added. Common spices used include ginger, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, allspice and cardamom. It can be hot and spicy or sweet and sour.

Illness puts Raonic’s return in question Canada’s Davis Cup team has proven they can win without star player Milos Raonic, but they would rather not have to do it again. Raonic’s much-anticipated return to tennis could be on hold, as the hard-serving 20-year-old from Thornhill, Ont., fell ill earlier this week after arriving in Israel

for Canada’s match against the host country. Raonic was hit with a bug, says Davis Cup captain Martin Laurendeau, and his status for Friday’s second singles match against Amir Weintraub is uncertain. “He’s in the process of recovering and getting his strength back,” Laurendeau said during a conference

WEEKEND, SEPTEMBER 16-18, 2011

call Thursday. “He wants to play. He trained this afternoon, he’s really worked hard to be here and play for Canada. He deserves to play and he will if he can.” Raonic hasn’t played since injuring his hip at Wimbledon in June. He underwent surgery July 5 in Vail, Colo., and announced

his tournament return would be this weekend’s Israel matchup. Laurendeau believes having this specific Davis Cup target date inspired Raonic to a faster recovery. “It really looked bad for the first few months after his injury,” Laurendeau said. “But Milos is so determined, he’s got Davis Cup

as a top priority on his calendar and I think that was the key to success in his rehab.” If Raonic can’t play Friday, the team will go with Peter Polansky of Thornhill. Raonic is also scheduled to play the first singles match on Sunday against Dudi Sela. THE CANADIAN PRESS

This jersey brought to you by ... KEITH BEATY/TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Jason Schwabe, the Toronto Maple Leafs’ co-ordinator of community and player programming, models the new practice jersey.

Leafs to debut sponsor patches on practice jersey Part of rich deal with shipping firm Purolator The Toronto Maple Leafs have taken a first small step down the slippery slope toward European-style shirt sponsorship. On Friday morning, the Leafs will debut a creditcard sized patch on the chest of the team’s practice jersey advertising the Purolator brand. It’s one part of a sponsorship deal that has the Canadian shipping giant paying the club an amount in the low seven figures, according to MLSE sources. The Leafs become the sixth NHL franchise to take advantage of the league’s new (and in certain U.S. markets, desperate) search for additional revenue. At this point, it’s an experiment contained to morning skates and the offseason. The road leads, of course, to the sacramental cloth players wear on game days. Shirt sponsorship in the

modern, splashed-in-bigletters-across-the-front sense started in Germany’s Bundesliga in the early 1970s. It was deeply unpopular, but within a decade everyone was doing it. British soccer club Manchester City recently signed a 10-year, $625-million US sponsorship deal with Etihad Airways, the major component of which is their shirt-front billboard. At some point business logos will migrate from practice jerseys to NHL game uniforms as well, because too many clubs need the money to survive. When and if the NHL’s most famous symbols begin to fade in the capitalist clutter, purists will wonder if anything is sacred anymore. The slow creep of commerce across the ocean and into North American sport suggests that nothing ever was. TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Today’s horoscope Aries March 21-April 20 If someone in a position of power offers you advice today, you should listen and learn. Taurus April 21-May 21 Try not to get upset or uptight today. How you react to provocation will determine what happens next. Gemini May 22-June 21 The depth and intensity of your feelings will surprise you today, but don’t try to deny that they exist. Cancer June 22-July 22 Someone you meet will attract you like a moth to the proverbial flame.

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

Leo July 23-Aug.23 Someone in a position of authority thinks highly of you. Use him or her to get what it is you desire. Virgo Aug. 24- Sept. 22 If you start a new relationship today, it’ll last a lifetime. If an existing relationship needs spicing up, it’s time. Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 23 Spend less time on other people’s problems and more time on your own. Scorpio Oct. 24-Nov. 22 Sit back and let life come to you, and expect surprises of an extremely pleasant nature.

Sagittarius Nov. 23-Dec. 21 It’s okay to focus on material

things. It’s not all about money, of course, but a lot of it is.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 20 Creatively, you are on a high right now. Produce something special.
