Blaze cancels classes

Firefighters get 9-1-1 call just after noon as thick black smoke billows from grade school JOE LOFARO/METRO

A suspicious fire at Broadview Public School yesterday caused $60,000 in damages to the school and cancelled today’s classes. The exterior of the rear of the school was damaged when a fire started on a couch that someone put on the roof of a one storey mechanical room. There was smoke damage in two or three classrooms as well as light smoke throughout the school, Ottawa Fire Services spokesperson Marc Messier said. Pam Peers, whose kids go to Broadview Public School, was aware of the couch that was on the roof. “I think teenagers have been putting a couch up there and it’s been taken down, and put up again,” she said. “There are a lot of kids in the neighbourhood so maybe they were fooling around. It’s hard to know.” There were no reported injuries and no one was inside the building when firefighters arrived. A message on the school’s website said the school will reopen tomorrow.

Double runs raise lots of funds

Ottawa hosts ‘biggest and best Army Run yet,’ says Lt.-Gen. Peter Devlin Book of remembrance honours Terry Fox’s mom, Betty JOE LOFARO

@METRONEWS.CA

Runners in Ottawa pounded the pavement Sunday in support of two very different charities: the Canada Army Run and the Terry Fox Run. More than 16,000 Canadians — civilians and military personnel — took part in the fourth annual Army Run, raising almost $100,000 from the Ottawa event and a mirror event held at Kandahar Air Field in Afghanistan. The money will support Soldier On and the Military Families Fund. Meanwhile, an estimated 2,500 people at Carleton University went running, walking,

Omnibus tops Commons agenda Parliamentarians are back to work today It’s the first chance the Conservatives have to move on their law-and-order election promises JESSICA SMITH

@METRONEWS.CA

The Conservatives are set to introduce a massive omnibus bill on terrorism, youth crime, wiretapping and other planks of their tough-on-crime platform. Terrorism tops the list, with the new bill promising, in its title, Justice for Victims of Terrorism. The Tories campaigned on allowing victims to sue terrorists and supporters. Two controversial, temporary anti-terrorism measures implemented after 9-11 will be reintro-

duced, Prime Minister Stephen Harper said in a recent TV interview. Crime legislation — on young offenders, sentencing and child predators — that was introduced but not passed before the election, is expected in the same bill. The exact wording of measures in the omnibus bill won’t be made public until it is introduced today, but the opposition parties are already raising alarms. The New Democrats say measures that would allow law enforcement to mon-

itor Internet activity without a warrant will amount to “legalized widespread snooping on average citizens.” The Conservatives say the measures will give law enforcement agencies “up-to-date tools to fight crime in today’s hightech telecommunications environment.” Before the debate, the legislative session will begin with tributes to Jack Layton.

The bill Here’s what the omnibus bill is expected to do on: TERRORISM Allow police to detain terrorism suspects for up to three days without charges. Allow judges to jail witnesses who won’t testify about terrorism. Allow terrorism victims to sue terrorists and their supporters.

YOUTH CRIME Simplify pre-trial detention rules so youths accused of serious crimes — including property crimes over $5,000, sexual exploitation and murder — can be jailed before trial. Expand “violent offence” definition so youths who endanger public safety during a crime can be jailed. TELECOMMUNICATIONS Make telecom providers install surveillance software, allowing police to track Internet and mobile-phone activity. Make telecoms disclose cus

tomer information to authorities. SENTENCING End house arrest for perpetrators of violent crimes, including sexual assault. End pardons for sexual assaults on minors, offenders with three convictions prosecuted by indictment. CHILD MOLESTATION Create or increase mandatory minimum jail time for certain sexual offences involving children. Outlaw “grooming” — i.e. making laws against giving sexually explicit material to a child for the purpose of committing an offence.

Quake rocks India Rescuers work to find people trapped under fallen buildings Nepal, Bangladesh also shaken

including two men and a child who were killed when a brick wall toppled outside the British Embassy in Nepal’s capital, Kathmandu.

A former Air Canada pilot and his wife were among nine people killed in Nevada after a 1940s-era plane crashed during an air show. George Hewitt, 60, and his wife Wendy, 57, were sitting with a group of vintage-military-plane owners when a P-51 Mustang crashed near a grandstand at the Reno air show on Friday, killing them instantly. The couple reportedly had moved recently from Washington to Fort Mohave, Ariz., after Hewitt retired. He was born in Winnipeg and flew as a pilot with Air Canada for about 40 years. The Seattle Times reported Hewitt owned a small post-Second World War plane originally built by the same company that made the P-51 Mustang.

A strong earthquake shook northeastern India and Nepal, killing at least 16 people, damaging buildings and sending lawmakers in Nepal’s capital running into the streets. The quake, with a preliminary magnitude of 6.9, struck at 6:10 p.m. yesterday local time and was felt across northern and eastern India, including in the capital of New Delhi. It triggered at least two aftershocks of magnitude 6.1 and 5.3, Indian seismology official R.S. Dattatreyan said. He warned more aftershocks were possible. At least five people in India’s Sikkim state were killed and more than 50 were injured, according to the state’s top official, Chief Secretary Karma Gy-

Jobs over deficit: Obama Plan proposes minimum tax rate for earners of more than $1 million Even as President Barack Obama prepares his opening bid on long-term debt reduction, the White House wants to keep the focus on jobs and is determined to avoid getting sucked into another budget fight with lawmakers. Administration officials see the task of attending to deficits as necessary but not necessarily urgent, compared with the need to revive the economy and increase employment. The White House also sees this as the time to draw sharp

contrasts with Republicans. So when Obama announces at least $2 trillion in deficit reduction measures today, he is not expected to offer all the compromises he reached with House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, in July. The plan represents an economic bookend to the $447 billion in tax cuts and new public works spending that Obama has proposed to as a short-term measure to stimulate the economy and create jobs.

UBS trading scandal loss up to $2.3B Oswald Gruebel, the chief executive of UBS, has dismissed calls for his resignation as politically

the trader, 31-year-old Kweku Adoboli, was already under investigation. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

POLICE MUST BE TRANSPARENT, ACCOUNTABLE URBAN COMPASS

Last week was not the best one for Ottawa police, as the Ontario Special Investigations Unit laid STEVE COLLINS assault charges against two METRO OTTAWA officers in the arrest of a homeless man and a judge considered allegations of cellblock mistreatment in a woman’s lawsuit against the force. It’s important to remember that little news coverage results when police do their job well. Complaints get the attention, but they are exceptional cases, and overall they were down 25 per cent in the first half of this year from the same period in 2010. According to a report to the Police Services Board, of 194 complaints lodged, 116 were resolved, 113 of those without disciplining the officers involved, and three with informal discipline. This overwhelming trend of resolution without any disciplinary consequences for officers might, howev“This er, discourage some from registering a complaint. overwhelming Lawrence Greenspon, trend of the lawyer representing resolution Roxanne Carr, one of at least six people suing Otwithout any tawa police over their disciplinary treatment in holding cells, consequences last year remarked that he hears about one complaint for officers a week about police might... misconduct, and he usualdiscourage some ly advises clients not to from registering bother with the complaints process, which a complaint. ” he considers a “waste of time and energy.” It’s not unusual for someone who’s been arrested to find their interaction with police essentially unsatisfactory, but both of last week’s cases included serious allegations. Hugh Styres, the homeless man found sleeping on the sidewalk, ended up in hospital with facial fractures, allegedly inflicted by police in arresting him. Styres was also charged with assault. Velvet LeClair claims she was arrested with excessive force after a night out in the Market and then subjected to sexual assault and crude comments in custody. LeClair’s case was complicated by the lack of a complete cellblock video, the uncut version of which has been destroyed, and the poor-quality excerpts remaining seem to contradict some of her recollections. Video was key in the prominent case of Stacy Bonds. She is suing for $1.2 million over her arrest and subsequent treatment in custody, including a strip search. The SIU has charged one of the officers involved with sexual assault. The courts will determine what actually happened in these cases, but police did well to acknowledge public concerns in the wake of the Bonds case by adding audio recording to cellblock cameras. Future abuse allegations are thus less likely to boil down to the word of the complainant against that of police.

Cartoon by Michael de Adder Letters Why are people starving to death in Somalia, Ethiopia and Kenya? The world has no shortage of food. Americans, Canadians and Europeans are dying of diabetes, cholesterol and obesity. The western countries are consuming too much food at the expense of the rest of the planet. Just to feed our appetite for meat requires huge amounts of agricultural land to grow plant-based feed to fatten livestock animals. We are on a downward spiral. We treat our pet rocks and gardens better than children and people experiencing real human suffering. Decisions are made all for the sake of money, power and privilege, or should I say control of oil and resources. I hate to go all Jesus on you, but Christ did say that it is easier for a camel to go through an eye of a needle than a rich man to enter the Kingdom of God. This biblical quote makes a lot of sense. Greed is a sin and it has played a major part in shaping the world and its citizens into either haves or have nots. ALEX SANGHA

Recovered message in a bottle a ‘miracle’ A Japanese teenager expressed her gratitude yesterday after a U.S. sailor in Hawaii found a bottle she had tossed into the sea off Japan’s southern coast as a child. Saki Arikawa, 17, said she had almost forgotten about the bottle and initially couldn’t believe it was found after five years. She said “it’s a miracle” the bottle was found. “It’s incredible,” she said.

The clear glass bottle was found Thursday by Navy Petty Officer Jon Moore during a beach cleanup at the Pacific Missile Range Facility on Kauai island. The bottle contained four origami cranes — symbols of peace in Japan — as well as a photo of Arikawa’s elementary school class and a note dated March 25, 2006, and signed by Arikawa saying she wanted it to be “a graduation memory.” The bottle was one of five she tossed into the ocean in 2006 as her sixth-grade class graduated from Kokubu Elementary School in Kagoshima. Three other bottles had previously been recovered, including two in Alaska and a third at another location in Hawaii. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Dolphin-friendly Freeman Actor Morgan Freeman talks about working with Winter the dolphin in Dolphin Tale STEVE GOW

SCENE@METRONEWS.CA

There are few actors that can upstage legendary Oscar-winning thespian Morgan Freeman. But of course that’s exclusively including human actors. In his latest movie, Freeman’s co-star is a dolphin. “That’s why they play such big roles (in our lives),” said Freeman recently about the animals’ natural acting ability. “And it’s like they’re doing their own thing — you

don’t know if they’re trained to do this stuff or if they’re showing off. I’m fascinated by them because I’ve seen them do stuff like that in the wild.” Specifically, Freeman is talking about Winter, the charming subject and star of this Friday’s release of Dolphin Tale, an inspiring story of a young marine mammal that was saved with the use of a prosthetic after losing its tail in a tragic accident. “I think this is a particularly special dolphin,” in-

sisted director Charles Martin Smith. “She has so much personality and she’s such a character. She’s basically the equivalent of a human 10-yearold … when I first started working on the script for this I sat with her for three days and watched her and (observed) all the things that she does that I could write into the script.” Among those traits included some interesting human-like habits and even an affinity for human contact.

was an agreeable improvement on some of his previous co-stars. “I worked with a bear one time and the guy said ‘don’t look him in the eye’. That’s a note I need — don’t look the damn thing in the eye,” laughed Freeman. “(Winter) has been in this aquarium for most of her life and even if she was wild, it wouldn’t bother me because somehow it appears that (dolphins) have the same kind of affinity for us as we have for them.”

Squash gets you fall ready This Squash Crumble will work as a side dish or even as a tasty dessert MATTHEW MEAD/ THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

The natural sweetness of butternut squash makes it a wonderfully versatile ingredient. This spiced and baked dish, for example, can be served as a sweet side alongside a roast and the traditional fixings or topped with ice cream for a delicious dessert.

Ingredients: Filling: • 45 ml (3 tbsp) brown sugar • 15 ml (1 tbsp) cornstarch • Pinch salt • 2 ml (1/2 tsp) cinnamon • 1 ml (1/4 tsp) nutmeg • 1 butternut squash (about 900 g or 2 pounds), peeled, seeded and cut into 2.5 cm (1-inch) chunks • 3 baking apples (such as Granny Smith), peeled, cored and cut into small chunks

Reclaiming the backyard TIMBER PRESS/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

New book shows how to find stuff for your yard without making a trip to a store Learn what you can do Trash talk has helped Matthew Levesque fashion an inventive career in garden design. He holds “creative reuse” workshops, and his “yardscaping” creations made from locally available items have become austerity-chic collectibles. “I’m trying to get people thinking about alternative sources for their materials,” said Levesque, author of The Revolutionary Yardscape. “Lots of landscape people are beginning to pay attention.” A slumping economy is forcing consumers to be as imaginative about finding landscaping supplies as they are about using them. Levesque is a master at crafting yard decor from cast-off materials that otherwise would stuff landfills or litter vacant lots. He turns toolboxes into

planters, and makes walkways from tumbled, recycled glass. He uses doors for fences and links small ceramic tubes into rain chains, a substitute for downspouts. “It’s the art of using what we’ve got,” said Levesque, who also operates what he describes as a “thrift store for house parts” in San Francisco. “I use my garden as a test kitchen, trying things out to see if they work.” Ignore the cookie-cutter

This walkway is made from scrap steel plates and remnant cedar planks from a fence.

garden furnishings sold at big box stores and nurseries, Levesque said. Instead, reclaim building materials with recognizably local origins so you can make one-of-a-kind

statements. “What is a flowerpot but a hole with a bottom and sides? Through reuse, a great many things can fit that description,” he said. Where should you look

for reclaimable building supplies? Salvage yards are great spots to start, Levesque said. “They generally offer goods at reasonable prices, and often the proceeds go

to an affiliated non-profit endeavour,” he said. “This is a quick place to find beautiful old windows, doors, racks of sheet metal and other useful stuff.” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Today, the Jim Pattison Group is Canada’s third largest privately owned company, but when I ask him to share his story he stops me quickly. “At our company we don’t talk about ourselves,” he says quietly. “We’re not fancy and we didn’t do much different.

In the age of autospellcheck, it’s tempting to thumb out double-time memos with no regard for the art of spelling. Still, career counsellors warn, your lack of SMS manners could cost you. “People are losing the art of putting together a complete couple of sentences,” says career coach Sue Thompson. “You need to consider to whom are you writing.” “It’s all about building

rapport,” agrees Shirin Khamisa, founder of Careers By Design. If your emails are responded to with snappish, unpunctuated replies — no “Hey, how are you,” no “Nice to hear from you” — then you might, she suggests, keep your correspondence curt. “But if it’s a person who has a more personal touch, then I would reciprocate,” she adds. “Those niceties are very important in building relationships, even online — and especially online — because we need that glue to

hold us together.” Older workers, Thompson notes, can be made uncomfortable by an overload of web abbreviations. “Baby boomers are going to expect a fairly concise, but formal email,” she says. And they’ll likely place a greater importance on spelling, she adds. “Some people will really consider your spelling, whether you know the difference between ‘your’ and ‘you’re.’ Just respect the person to whom you’re writing. That’s what etiquette is.”

Three key ways to jinx a potential job Acing the interview isn’t always easy; sabotaging it is quite a lot more simple Avoid these pre-job blunders You already know to spellcheck your resumé and give a nice firm handshake, but these days, there’s a lot more between you and your new gig. Tony Lee, publisher of CareerCast.com, advises on the biggest red flags recruiters encounter. Being too casual

Sometimes, being your lovable, charming self isn’t the best approach. “One of the biggest problems is people think of themselves as being pretty smart, so they think they can wing it — they’ll impress companies and interviewers and recruiters just by being themselves,” says Lee.

“But you really need to be ready to show why you’re the best candidate and are ready for the job. Make sure you’re not too casual in your approach.” Submitting a general application

Even if the positions you’re applying for are similar, take the time to personalize each cover letter and resumé — it’ll make you stand out from the majority of applicants who don’t. “One of the biggest complaints we hear from employers is that candidates aren’t very savvy about applying for jobs,” says Lee. “They fire off the same application for every job without tailoring it for that

position.” Not explaining gaps in employment

If you haven’t been working, you’re far from alone. But it’s important to account for that time to prospective employers. “They’re afraid that if you’ve been out of work for a couple years than you’ve fallen into bad habits. What you have to show is that you’ve been active,” says Lee. “If you can show that in the last year you helped manage three events at your children’s schools that helped raise over $20,000, it shows that you’ve been active.” METRO WORLD NEWS

Rays continue to close gap on Red Sox The ball struck David Price in the chest and bounced in the air, a hit that could have devastated Tampa Bay’s playoff chances. But Evan Longoria fielded the carom and threw to first for the out, Price stayed in the game and the Rays beat the Red Sox 8-5 yesterday to take three out of four in Boston and close within two games in the AL

wild-card race. The Red Sox have lost 11 of 14 and are left rooting for the New York Yankees,

who play the Rays seven times in the last 10 games. “To be able to do this against this team here, if that can’t bolster your confidence nothing really can,” Rays manager Joe Maddon said. “Now it becomes more viable. You can see the light at the end of the tunnel, and now it’s not attached to an oncoming train.”

Blue Jays pitcher Brandon Morrow works against the Yankees at Rogers Centre yesterday.

GROUP BY FINISHING THE WEEKEND UNDEFEATED

After a run of poor results, Blue Jays starter Brandon Morrow changed his approach for yesterday’s series finale against the New York Yankees. The adjustment paid off in a big way. Morrow allowed just four hits over eight shutout innings and Adam Lind hit two solo homers as Toronto blanked New York 3-0 in the rubber game of the three-game set. The 27-yearold said he was determined to be more aggressive from his warmup session right through to his final pitch. “I went as hard as I could for as long as I could,” Morrow said. He finished with eight strikeouts, one walk and threw 78 of his 107 pitches for strikes. Morrow (10-11) used his cutter on several occasions and tinkered with his pacing. The right-hander had allowed 13 earned runs in his

two previous outings and dropped six of seven decisions before bouncing back against the Yankees. “Today he was unhittable,” Lind said. “When he has that kind of stuff he’s one of the best pitchers in the big leagues.” Frank Francisco recorded his 16th save as Toronto improved to 77-75 while New York fell to 91-60. It was a glorious day for a late summer game and Lind gave the 34,657 fans at Rogers Centre plenty to cheer about. Both of his blasts came off Yankees starter Freddy Garcia (11-8), who lasted 4 2⁄3 innings. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Panthers rookie Cam Newton.

Aaron Rodgers threw for 308 yards and two scores and the Green Bay Packers withstood another 400-yard passing day from Carolina rookie Cam Newton to beat the Panthers 30-23 yesterday. A week after throwing for 422 yards, Newton topped himself with 432 yards and a touchdown. He also ran for a 4-yard touchdown with 37 seconds left to bring Carolina (0-2) within seven, but the Packers (20) recovered the onside kick

to seal the victory. Rodgers found Greg Jennings for a 49-yard touchdown early in the third to put the Packers ahead for good. Then, after Clay Matthews stopped Newton on a fourth-down run inside the five, Rodgers found Jordy Nelson for an 84-yard touchdown to make it a two-possession game. The Packers’ defence forced Newton into three interceptions — two by Charles Woodson. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Around the NFL

In other action yesterday: Ryan Fitzpatrick threw a sixyard touchdown to David Nelson with 14 seconds left and the Buffalo Bills scored five second-half TDs to overcome a 21-3 first-half deficit in a 38-35 win over the Oakland Raiders.

Matthew Stafford threw two of his four TD passes to Calvin Johnson and the Detroit Lions are 2-0 after a 483 rout over the Kansas City Chiefs, the largest margin of victory ever for the Lions. The Pittsburgh Steelers bounced back from an opening weekend loss to Baltimore as Ben Roethlisberger threw for 298 yards and a TD in a 24-0 romp over the Seattle Seahawks. Mark Sanchez threw two TDs and Antonio Cromartie had two interceptions as the New York Jets beat the Jacksonville Jaguars 32-3.
