Speaking up on slowing down City council soon to hear survey results on speed-limit pilot More than 2,000 residents interviewed via phone in July, August HEATHER MCINTYRE

@METRONEWS.CA

Residents slowing down in six city neighbourhoods for more than a year were recently asked whether they want to keep their foot on the brake or put it back on the gas pedal. A reduced speed limit of 40 km/h from 50 km/h was implemented in May 2010 as part of a six-month pilot program, and the city hired a consultant to survey more than 2,000 residents this summer. “In Woodcroft, it’s a clear indication of what they want to do,” said city transportation boss Bob Boutilier. “Others are relatively close.” In Woodcroft, 78 per cent said

they’d prefer the lower limit. “It all has to do with reaction time and giving drivers an opportunity to stop if they see a child,” said resident Patricia Grell, who would actually prefer 30km/h. Program results show that five of the six communities saw a reduction in collisions and all six saw speed reductions. In Beverly Heights, a nearly 50-50 split on speed doesn’t surprise resident George Karbonik. “The people that are on the main routes definitely want the 40,” he said. “The people that are off the main routes, and the further off they are, they moreso want the 50.” Kathy Morrison lives along 114 Avenue and likes the reduced speed. “When it’s 40, most cars are

ness centre, library and more. Board chair Debbie Engel said some young people find it difficult to combine sports, other activities and personal lives with desired academic grades in three years. “It’s not just about (high school completion),” said trustee Marilyn Bergstra. “It’s about moving beyond that and into post-secondary education. “And this is that ticket.” The $11.6-million facility will be paid for by the city and repaid by the board.

Even if one or more of the communities involved in a reduced residential speed limit pilot project keeps its speed limit capped at 40 km/h, it doesn’t mean the rest of the city is going to follow suit.

Other methods, such as narrowing wide streets or installing speed bumps, can be considered. “Those are things that need to be looked at,” said transportation manager Bob Boutilier. “Not one (measure) will apply to everything.” And while the pilot project could open the door for others to come forward and make their cases for a lower limit, Boutilier isn’t sure it’s a

good idea. He said the wellknown 50 km/h limit will not be changed provincewide, and to do so in some parts of the city and not others would be expensive. “Every roadway with a different speed limit, we would need to put a sign up,” he said. “That’s every cul-de-sac and every side road. That’s tens of thousands of signs.” HEATHER MCINTYRE

Tory crime crackdown Giant justice bill touches drugs, parolees, refugees, terrorism Critics say the measures just don’t work SEAN KILPATRICK/THE CANADIAN PRESS FILE

Drugs, refugees, parolees and terrorism. The Conservative government touched them all when it introduced sweeping new criminal-justice changes yesterday. But the Tories dismissed the cost to taxpayers and the downward direction of crime trends. “We’re not governing on the basis of the latest statistics,” Justice Minister Rob Nicholson said in Brampton, Ont. “We’re governing on the basis of what’s right to better protect victims and law-abiding Canadians.” Prime Minister Stephen Harper has moved to make good on an election promise to bundle a series of proposed measures as part of his self-described “tough-on-crime” agenda.

“Canadians … deserve to feel safe in their homes,” Justice Minister Rob Nicholson said yesterday.

The 110-page omnibus bill tabled in the Commons affects nine pieces of existing legislation including changes to drug laws, youth sentencing, the pardons system, detention of refugees, parole and house

arrest and anti-terrorism measures. The government won praise from victims’-rights groups and at least two provinces. But critics say the measures are hugely expensive

Going down … Crime rates in both Canada and the United States have been trending downward in near lock-step for at least a decade. Many American state governments are attempting to unravel harsh minimum-sentencing provisions and bring in more parole and housearrest options in an effort to ease the crushing cost of incarceration.

and have been proven ineffective — or worse — over three decades of increasingly draconian “tough-oncrime” campaigns in the United States. Many of the new provisions will increase the number of offenders facing sentences of less than two years, putting more strain on provincial jails. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Libyans flee siege in Gadhafi’s hometown Ex-rebels claim control over much of southern city of Sirte Transitional government says it will press on with rebuilding efforts despite continued fighting putting up a fight, but three of his men and 19 pro-Gadhafi tribesmen were killed. He said it would take another week for his forces to take control of all of Libya’s southern desert and its borders with Algeria and Niger. Several groups of officials from Gadhafi’s regime, as well as one of the dictator’s sons, have fled to Niger. Earlier, residents fleeing Sirte said they had been living under a state of siege with Gadhafi’s forces preventing them from leaving, while living conditions deteriorated and the city came under constant rocket fire and NATO bombardment.

Portraits of an unpopular leader

Graffiti depicting Libya’s ousted Moammar Gadhafi is seen on a street yesterday in Tripoli.

Libyan graffiti artists are taking advantage of newfound freedom to make fun of ousted leader Moammar Gadhafi on the streets of Tripoli. For 42 years, the authoritarian leader banned writing or drawing on public walls. Artists are now expressing themselves throughout the capital of two million people, and their favourite topic is Gadhafi and other former members of his regime on

storefronts and office buildings. One picture mocks Gadhafi’s habit of calling himself the king of kings of Africa by calling him the “monkey of monkeys of Africa.” Another shows the longtime leader’s public relations officer Youssef Shakhir with a rat’s tail and holding prayer beads, because people said he always held them in appearances.

Air Canada has reached a tentative contract deal with the union for its flight attendants, averting a possible strike that would have disrupted operations at Canada’s biggest airline. The Canadian Union of Public Employees said yesterday it is recommending

Air Canada’s 6,800 flight attendants accept the deal. “It’s business as usual and customers can continue to make their travel plans on Air Canada with confidence,” Susan Welscheid, Air Canada’s senior vice-president of customer service said.

Tims truly exports itself Tim Hortons’ new Dubai location represents “the first true export of the brand,” CEO Paul House said yesterday, but even after the outlet opened its doors to crowds of Canadian expatriates Saturday, the chain is not rushing toward a global presence. “It’s a historic moment,” House said. Though the chain has already opened extensive operations in the U.S., selfserve kiosks in the U.K., and a temporary location at the Kandahar Airfield in Afghanistan, this store is its first full-serve restaurant outside of North America. The menu is identical, and although Dubai is a “mature” coffee market, with many Starbucks, Tims sees opportunity in its value-priced food options not readily available in the region, House said.

TECHNOLOGY

Future car drives itself It can talk, see, drive and no longer needs a human being to control it by remote. The car of the future — completely computercontrolled — is on the streets of Berlin. All summer, researchers from the city’s Free University have been

testing the automobile. The vehicle manoeuvres through traffic on its own using a sophisticated combination of devices, including a computer, electronics and a precision satellite navigation system in the trunk, a camera in the front, and laser scanners on the roof and around the front and rear bumpers. “The vehicle can recognize other cars on the road, pedestrians, build-

ings and trees up to 70 metres around it and even see if the traffic lights ahead are red or green and react accordingly,” explained Raul Rojas, the head of the university’s research group for artificial intelligence. The scientists have worked on their research car, a Volkswagen Passat worth $551,800 US with lots of built-in special technology, for four years. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

In August, the Air Canada flight attendants had resoundingly rejected a tentative deal CUPE negotiated with the airline, forcing the two sides back to the drawing board. The key areas of dispute were wages, pensions, crew rest, working conditions and work rules. CUPE said it will hold meetings of its membership in Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto and Montreal over the next week. A strike deadline had been set for just after midnight today, though federal Labour Minister Lisa Raitt had warned she would introduce back-to-work legislation. Minutes after the deal was announced, Labour Minister Lisa Raitt called on union members to ratify the agreement. “The objective of the legislation that we put on notice yesterday has been achieved and we are so very pleased that air service for Canadians will be protect-

ed,” she said. A walkout in June by the airline’s customer service agents lasted just three days before a deal was reached under a threat by Raitt that she would legislate them back to work. The Air Canada deal was announced soon after the two sides resumed face-toface talks and hours after they broke off negotiations. It prompted Air Canada’s shares to soar more than six per cent, gaining 10 cents to $1.69 in afternoon trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange. The union held rallies at Parliament Hill in Ottawa and other locations. Sal Occhiuzzi, 54, a flight attendant for 31 years, said workers just wanted a fair deal that will allow them to recover some of the money lost in the last decade. “We helped the company out when things were tough and we all gave a lot and it’s time for the company to give a bit back,” he said.

Governments ‘must act swiftly’: Bank of Canada Bank of Canada governor Mark Carney is issuing a call to action to governments and laying partial blame on their ineffectual responses so far for taking the world to the precipice of a new recession. In a hard-hitting speech to a business crowd in Saint John, N.B., Carney said yesterday the combination of sovereign debt worries and bad politics have sapped investor confidence. “The combination of high debt loads and unpredictable politics is toxic,” he said. The no-nonsense language highlights the importance Carney gives to the upcoming meetings of the G20 finance ministers and International Monetary Fund later this week. But it also underscores the gravity of the situation as he sees it. Europe’s fiscal and debt problems are serious but fixable, but governments must act swiftly to fix them, he said. He said the U.S. is

While these problems — and solutions — lie mostly outside Canada, Carney said that the Canadian economy will not skirt by unscathed.

GINGER-SPERM BAN TURNING SOME HEADS JUST SAYIN’ ...

Redheads are special. I know. I’ve been married to one for 33 years come Oct. 6. They’re fiery, fierce, funny PAUL SULLIVAN and fantastic. The air crackles METRO as they walk down the street. Some even come with an added bonus: freckles. I defy anyone to resist the charms of a fat-faced, green-eyed, red-headed moppet adorned with freckles. It can’t be done. So what’s with the world’s largest sperm bank, the Danish firm of Cryos International, turning red-headed donors away? Apparently the demand for green-eyed red-headed moppets adorned with freckles has dropped off, except in Ireland, where red-headed sperm sells like hotcakes according to the director, some guy named Ole (not to be confused with Olé, which ain’t Danish). The Irish breed as many redheads as four-leaf clovers, but there are also up to 18 million redheads in the U.S.A., and Scotland is the epicentre, where 13 per cent of the “Red-headed population sports a carrot babies have an top.

A redhead is called Fergie, or maybe Gus. And definitely Colleen. Take it from me. As you can tell from the photo that accompanies this column, I should be considered completely neutral on matters of hair. I’d be happy to have some, period. I dimly remember having brown hair, which clogged the drain for a few years before making an early exit. I think I’m what they call Black Irish, which is ridiculous as 99 per cent of me is pink, especially with prolonged exposure to the sun. Most redheads aren’t so good in the sunlight either, as they don’t need the competition. We simply can’t allow redheads to be eclipsed by reproductive science (talk about an oxymoron).

Cartoon by Michael de Adder Worth Mentioning AVATAR. The Walt Disney

Co. said yesterday it has agreed on an exclusive deal to build attractions based on James Cameron’s Avatar at its theme parks, starting with its Animal Kingdom park in Orlando, Fla. Construction is set to begin in 2013 and is expected to be finished about three years after that. The Avatar attraction is to be an immersive land spanning several acres and will cost less than half of the estimated $1 billion US it cost to expand Disney California Adventure Park, or around $400 million US. CEO Bob Iger made the announcement at a news conference yesterday. Cameron, who is working on the second and third instalments of the top-grossing film of all time, said the attractions would be a way to bring the lush world of Pandora to life, and would include animatronics and potential multimedia shows that use 3-D and holographic technology. “This is a pretty darned exciting project,” Cameron told reporters.

Something missing in the audience ... oh yeah, men Turkey has come up with a radical solution for tackling crowd violence at soccer games: ban the men and let only women and children in. Under new rules approved by Turkey’s soccer association, only women and children under the age of 12 will be admitted to watch games — for free — involving teams which have

been sanctioned for unruly behaviour by their fans. Yesterday, women formed long lines around Fenerbahce’s Sukru Saracoglu stadium. The game kicked off with Fenerbahce and Manisaspor players hurling flowers at the spectators. The visiting team was greeted with applause, instead of the usual jeering. Fenerbahce was sanctioned by the association in July following trouble by fans who also attacked journalists for what they regarded as critical coverage of a match-fixing probe that involves the league champion. Fenerbahce president Aziz Yildirim is among 30 suspects detained in the case. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Taylor Lautner looks to shed his werewolf image with his first solo project The teen heartthrob promises to keep our pulses racing in his new flick

The ‘next Tom Cruise’

SCENE@METRONEWS.CA METRO WORLD NEWS IN HOLLYWOOD

If you ever find yourself searching for the room where you’re scheduled to interview Taylor Lautner, look for the one with the duo of hulking security guards suspiciously eyeing every room service attendant or housekeeper that walks down the hall. That’s the place. It makes sense that Lautner would need to take certain precautions given that he’s been an international megastar since the age of 16, thanks to a little something called Twilight. Now at the ripe old age of 19, with his time as werewolf Jacob Black wrapped on the final installment of the series and set to come to an end in November 2012, Lautner is looking to grow from teen idol to leading man with his first solo project, Abduction, an action adventure helmed by John Singleton. As grateful as Lautner is for the success of the Twilight franchise, one has to wonder if he isn’t more than a little excited to escape certain byprod-

Film synopsis Abduction is “a thriller centred on a young man who sets out to uncover the truth about his life after finding his baby photo on a missing persons website,” according to IMDB.

ucts of the series’ success, like the hysterical screaming teens that swarm him wherever he goes. Asked if he ever grows weary of hearing shrieks, he shakes his head. “I love that noise,” he smiles. “We feed off of their energy. When we walk into a room, an auditorium or a red carpet and there’s thousands of fans screaming, it really gets us pumped. I remember the first time we ever heard it was at Comic Con for Twilight and we were like, ‘Whoa! What is going on?’ But now we’re

kind of used to it. We love it.” Leaving the Twilight series behind and embarking on more mature roles, Lautner has been hailed as “the next Tom Cruise,” a distinction he embraces with a “Gee, shucks, me?” attitude. “Tom Cruise has been my idol my entire life. I love his career path, his choices, so to have a tenth of the career Tom Cruise has had would be a dream for me,” he offers shyly. One thing Cruise and Lautner have in common, besides those delightfully

toothy grins, is a love of performing their own stunts. As an accomplished martial artist, Lautner is extremely physically capable and was thrilled to

tackle the action sequences of Abduction, which included boxing, riding on the hood of a careening car and sliding down the sheer glass face of an escalator overhang. “When I hear about the stunts that my character is going to do, I want to do them myself,” Lautner beams. “Selfishly, they sound fun, but our goal with this movie was to make it seem as real and grounded as possible and it always helps when the real actors are doing the stunts.”

Canadian singer J.D. Fortune says he’s no longer a member of the band INXS and that the split is amicable. In a post on his blog yesterday, Fortune says he was not fired and didn’t quit, but that the band will continue without him. He says he’s now developing “several exciting projects as a solo artist.” THE CANADIAN PRESS

‘A different type of relationship’ CONTRIBUTED

Harry Connick Jr. gets wet.

RICHARD CROUSE

SCENE@METRONEWS.CA METRO WORLD NEWS HOLLYWOOD

Harry Connick Jr. says working with his co-star everyday was “really incredible.” He’s not talking about Morgan Freeman or Ashley

Judd, although he enjoyed spending time on set with them. No, he’s referring to Winter, the titular star of his new film Dolphin’s Tale. Winter is the real-life inspiration of the story of a bottlenose dolphin whose tail was lost in a crab trap.

Rescued and rehabilitated by the folks at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, the giant marine mammal was equipped with a prosthetic tail which allows it to swim normally. “I’ve been around dolphins before but there is something different about

her. I guess it’s because she’s been so ultra socialized, she’s been around so many different people since she was months old that maybe there is a different type of relationship she has with humans. I’m not sure. There is something you can feel. It’s pretty cool.”

Jonah Hill is understandably a little hoarse when we meet up with him at the Four Seasons Hotel in Boston. The night before, he had been partying with the staff of the Harvard Lampoon in nearby Cambridge. “Oh my gosh, one of the best nights of my entire life,” he says. He gets a little starry eyed. “It was very inspirational because not only have a lot of the great comedy writers of our time and before passed through there and were a part of that organization, but it was inspirational and moving in that I always felt like,

I know you must be sick of talking about your weight, but could you give me a CliffsNotes’ version?

I completely understand

people’s interest in it. I went to a nutritionist. I wanted to be healthier. It’s really as simple as that. It’s not that talking about it bothers me; it’s just how uninteresting my answers are. I wish I had something more interesting to say. At the Video Music Awards you made a crack that “people keep saying, ‘now that you’ve lost weight, you’re probably not funny anymore.’” And then you go and do a dramatic film!

I just like all kinds of movies. To me it’s about making good movies. I’m lucky enough to spend my life doing this, and I’d like to it when I’m an old man. I’d like to have a few DVDs — or whatever space tech-

nology they have — to show to my grandkids and go, ‘This is what I spent my life doing.’ Hopefully there’s three or four in there that are just worthy of having said I spent my life doing something... At what point did you know you wanted to try a drama?

I think I’ve always wanted to take this turn — it just had to be the right thing. … With all these talented people, I mean it was a no brainer. The truth is I feel very similar right now at this moment in my career to how I did when Superbad was coming out, because Superbad was my introduction to people. I was this underdog, an unlikely star. I was not famous

Brad Pitt, left, and Jonah Hill star in Moneyball.

and I was the star of this big motion picture. I was saying ‘Hey, I’m Jonah. I’m in this movie. I’d like to do more of this and I hope you accept me.’ And I got really lucky and it was really popular. But now when I’m in a comedy, you hear, “Jonah Hill is in a comedy,” and it’s not unexpected anymore. It’s completely expected, and I feel

grateful and lucky for that. So now I feel the same way because I’m re-introducing myself by saying ‘Hey, I’m Jonah and I’m in this different kind of movie that you’re definitely not used to seeing me in, a different kind of performance. And I’d like to do more of this and I hope you accept me.’ So it’s a very surreal dreamlike experience.

Your first day in Arizona, in the heart of the Sierra Ancha’s stones, try gearing up with a wetsuit and a helmet to inspect the Salome Canyon underworld. Scramble and swim in some of the most spectacular natural playgrounds in the world. At times down in the canyon, you will be able to touch both granite walls rising 200-feet above you and rappel a 40-feet rushing waterfall. Spend a divine night at the luxury Royal Palms Resort and Spa, and wake up early to climb the Camelback Mountain in Phoenix. Imagine the sensation of making one with the mountain, of floating like a bold eagle above the rocks while admiring the sunrise on the city. Take the afternoon to go deeper in the Sonora desert and hike among the boulders. Get on your mountain bike on the third day and race among cacti and other unwelcoming, yet beauti-

ful spiky trees in McDowell Regional Park. Make sure not to step on a rattlesnake or a tarantula nest; they abound in the area. Unwind in the afternoon, kayaking on the gentle stream of the Salt River, where you might come across wild mustangs. On day four, you will board a Cessna (a four-seater plane) to fly over the Grand Canyon. In the Grand Canyon National Park, sore muscles permitting, you will embark on a 1200foot descent down the canyon. It’s a spectacular trek through more than 40 million years of geological history. Save a day to drive down to Tucson and live among cowboys for a while at the White Stallion Ranch.

Start the search in September. Seriously. STUDENT VOICE TOMMY TAM TALENTEGG.CA

Most college and university students start their summer job search in February. But actually, job searching much earlier — in September — can lead to summer employment. In the beginning of September 2010, I began looking for work-study positions at my university. The Federal Work-Study Program allows students like me to gain some extra cash while still putting school as their first priori-

ty. The program restricts students to a maximum of 12 working hours per week and usually runs from September to early March. After sending my resumé and cover letter to a few work-study positions, I was invited for an interview and was granted the position of Research Assistant at the Department of Health Policy, Management and Evaluation (HPME). I truly enjoyed my time and my work with the professor and her team, but found myself searching for a summer job as April 2011 came around. To my surprise, my pro-

Where Tommy is now

I am currently a graduate student at the Department of Health Policy, Management and Evaluation (HPME), the same department where I held a workstudy position.

What I learned Key take-aways from Tommy’s experience: Don’t leave job-searching to the last minute. If you want a job after graduation, then start applying when employers are hiring: in September. Networking is vital to landing any job — if employers can put a face to a name, you’ll stand out from the numerous resumés they receive every day.

ber really paid off. Based on my experience, I would recommend career centres continue actively promoting and advertising the Federal Work-Study Program so that students can be informed of these types of opportunities. The Federal WorkStudy Program has

worked wonders for my career and I sincerely hope that it will do the same for others as well. I also hope that my fellow students learn how important it is to start your job search early, in September when companies are hiring students who are going to graduate that year. Students often

start their job search in February or even later on in the year but I hope I can encourage students to start their job searches as early as possible. TALENTEGG.CA, CANADA’S ONLINE CAREER RESOURCE FOR STUDENTS AND RECENT GRADS, WANTS TO HEAR YOUR STUDENT VOICE. SHARE IT AT TALENTEGG.CA.

WORKPLACE WINNERS ALWAYS WELCOME ISTOCK

WORKPLACE LAW

a promotion, most will complain and they will do so immediately. The problem with them, however, is not what they say it is when they say it. But the Stoic is different. He or she is cool under pressure and patient when it matters most. More importantly, the Stoic understands when not to complain.

Last week I introduced you to my favourite workplace “losers”; those people who just love to fail, and why their idiosyncrasies often cost them their own cases. But Canadian workplaces have a number of “winners” as well. These people play the game right and they often come out ahead. Here are some of their winning attributes: The Peacemaker

Companies do not value employees who create or participate in stupid arguments as much as

The Opportunist

While a quarrelsome nature may be lurking in the background, a workplace winner knows how to keep things cool and professional

those that avoid them. The Peacemaker understands this concept and avoids workplace quarrels, especially those between colleagues and he

or she never takes sides in a meaningless dispute. Rather, the Peacemaker offers an objective opinion and unbiased advice to others.

The Stoic

Employees have a tendency to seek instant gratification, usually to their own detriment. When they are denied a raise or

In law, just like in life, timing is everything. The Opportunist knows this concept well and lurks for an opportunity to take advantage of a good situation. The Opportunist may not be the best at whatever he or she does at work but by being in the right place at the right time, they get credit from their employers. The Optimist

No one likes a grouch at work. This is not news to the Optimist, because he

or she is valued by an employer for a positive attitude, even if it is sometimes a facade. The Game Changer

Employers obviously value employees who make a difference more than those who just sit on the fence. But the Game Changer does more than just contribute. He or she is strategic and savvy, so their involvement usually leads to success. DANIEL LUBLIN IS AN EMPLOYMENT LAWYER WITH WHITTEN & LUBLIN LLP.

Winnipeg welcomes new Jets They came, they cheered and they screamed “Go Jets go” as a 15-year separation between Winnipeg and NHL hockey was put on ice last night as the Jets made their return with a 61 win. It was just an exhibition game against the Columbus Blue Jackets and a split-squad one at that. Columbus also won their half of the series at

home 5-1. But the smallest arena in the league was packed with 15,004 jersey-wearing, ecstatic fans who screamed their lungs out at the MTS Centre. They had lots to cheer. The first fight erupted less than a minute in and Winnipeg’s first goal was scored by Paul Postma within the first eight minutes.

And Jets top draft pick Mark Scheifle scored twice and had two assists. “It was heartbreaking to lose them and to get them back like this is extremely exciting,” said Kevin Francis, who attended the game with his son John. “I couldn’t be happier,” said Francis, one of many who lined up and arrived more than an hour early.

Weir wants to get back before Masters Mike Weir is facing a long road to recovery from surgery, but still hopes to return to the PGA Tour before next year’s Masters.

The lefty from Bright’s Grove, Ont., told reporters on a conference call yesterday he’s hoping to play a couple events before next year’s first major in April. Weir said he’ll need to be patient during recovery and won’t rush back to action. The 41-year-old had the extensor tendon in his right elbow repaired on Aug. 18. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Motor

Charge time

Space

The iMiEV’s 49-kilowatt (66-horsepower) electric motor is located in the rear and directs its 145 pound-feet of torque to the rear wheels. The iMiEV’s top speed is 130 km/h, but driving at that velocity for any length of time will quickly sap its 330volt lithium-ion battery pack positioned beneath the passenger floor. Mitsubishi places the typical range at about 135 kilometres per charge, less than the 160 kilometres claimed by the Nissan Leaf and other electrics.

A 240-volt home charging system will top up the iMiEV in about six hours. Plug it into a regular 120-volt home outlet, however, and it’s an agonizingly-long 22.5 hours. That doesn’t leave much time in the day for driving. What will eventually be needed is a network of public charging stations that allow all electric vehicle owners to top up the batteries in the shortest possible time.

The iMiEV’s true purpose is abundantly clear: a short-haul urban commuter pod that can also tackle more mundane chores. It will easily accommodate four adults as long as they’re packing light. However with only the front seats in use, cargo capacity with the 50:50 rear seatbacks folded flat matches the space available in the larger Nissan Leaf.

There’s a revolution under way, and it’s being fought with volts and kilowatts. This is the new-age arsenal of which those shopping for electrically powered automobiles such as Mitsubishi’s iMiEV will become increasingly familiar. The iMiEV hatchback

Lean, green cuisine that’s scheduled to arrive here in late 2011 joins the all-electric Nissan Leaf and Tesla roadster plus the gasoline-supported Chevrolet Volt as pioneers in the automotive clean-energy movement. Additional models, including the Mini E and

Smart Fortwo Electric, are currently (pun intended) in limited production, while Ford’s Transit Connect van and compact Focus will become electrified for the 2012 model year. Other automakers, both large and small, have similar plans to

join the electric motorpool. At this point, the iMiEV will be one of the smallest electrical offerings to be mass produced for general consumption. But in terms of accommodations and price, it should prove to be one of the more attractive.

Base price: $40,000 Roomy hatchback gets high marks for functionality, if not for elegance. WHEELBASE MEDIA

The lightweight (1,180 kilograms) and efficiently designed iMiEV is bound to succeed on price alone. The fact that its minimalist and futuristic styling will play well with the eco crowd should help keep Mitsubishi’s green machine solidly in the black right from the outset. Revolution? Ready, aim, charge.

VOLKSWAGEN PUSHES Recycling your ride FOR NO. 1 STATUS

OARA 2011

AUTO PILOT MIKE GOETZ DRIVE

@METRONEWS.CA

All the big cheeses at big automotive companies are male. I think that’s why we always hear talk about who is – or who is gunning to be – the world’s No. 1 automaker.

I

t has something to do with sales and profits, yes, but a bit more to do with testosterone. The latest “king of the hill” rhetoric emanated from the Frankfurt Auto Show, which is in full swing this week. Volkswagen issued a statement at the show, detailing how they plan to spend 62.4 billion euros (about $84 billion) in the coming five years to boost its worldwide production. Currently the VW group, which includes VW, Audi, Skoda and Seat brands, ranks third in the

world motor vehicle production rankings. But it wants the No. 1 status, currently held by Toyota. Also ahead of VW at the moment, is No. 2 man, General Motors. Yes, that same General Motors that filed for bankruptcy protection back in 2009. “Top of the agenda for us are investments in environmentally-friendly, sustainable models and drives,” noted CEO Martin Winterkorn, in VW’s statement. One of those sustainable models sure to drive future volume is the VW Up, shown for the first time in production trim at the show in Frankfurt. The “mini” or “city” Up is a class smaller than Golf, so we probably won’t see it here in North America, which would be a shame, because it’s looks pretty good. And where VW is adding future production speaks volume about which world markets are expected to produce the most incremental sale growth in future years. Those markets would be China, Russia, etc., and North America and Europe not so much. I guess being No. 1 would be a good thing for

List

During this stage of the recycling process, what’s left of a car is referred to as the hulk.

any automaker, but I sometimes wonder if people forget about the baggage that comes with being No. 1 at anything. It doesn’t take long before the cooler kids start looking the other way, or throw rocks at you when you’re not looking, because you are now the boring establishment, and had it coming. And you can forget about having any “underdog” support you once enjoyed. So go ahead, take your place at the top of the hill if you want to, just bring a helmet.

Behold ... The final resting place of your deceased vehicle Once considered scrap, endof-life cars are now considered an asset, dismantled and sold for the value of their parts and metal. It’s a process that involves both reuse and recycling once they go to their final resting place. Some 1.2 million vehicles come off the road in Canada every year, according to Steve Fletcher, managing director of the Automotive Recyclers of Canada. Good recyclers will get as much as they can from each one. “First, they’ll remove any parts that can be directly resold,” he says. “Engines, transmissions, mirrors, taillights, anything that doesn’t have to be reworked and can be directly reused.” Next, the recycler drains the 20 to 40 litres of fluid that each one may hold, including gasoline, antifreeze, transmission oil, brake fluid, washer fluid and engine oil. Fluids that are fresh enough are used in company vehicles, while

DRIVING FORCE JIL MCINTOSH DRIVE@METRONEWS.CA

old or excess liquids are sold for recycling or reuse. “We’re paid six to eight cents a litre for oil,” Fletcher says; it will be re-refined into recycled oil or burned in asphalt furnaces. “We want the lead acid battery, not just for the environmental reasons, but because it’s worth $4 to $5 as a core that can be refurbished,” Fletcher says. Freon is extracted from the a/c system using special equipment, and is either sold or reused. Recyclers also check for mercury-filled switches, which were used in some older vehicles to activate the under-hood light, and which must be handled as toxic waste. “From here, the recyclers start to take it down by the metal,” Fletcher says. “That’s anything like the

copper in radiators, or aluminum in the wheels or engine.” What’s left is called the hulk and it’s flattened in a giant press, mainly to make it more convenient to ship. If the seats, trim or windshield weren’t good enough to reuse, they’re simply left in and pressed during the process. From there, the hulk is shipped to a facility that shreds it into fist-sized chunks. Magnets and other secondary recovery systems such as pressurized air are used to separate the metals, which are then sent for recycling, while foam, carpet and glass go to landfill. “On an average vehicle, you’ll get 75 per cent recycled as metal,” Fletcher says. “Once you factor in the parts we take out, such as tires and (reusable) parts, up to 83 per cent of the vehicle is recycled. You get about $500 to $600 for the metal in a flattened hulk for about $100 in time and effort, so a car has positive value.”

This Jeep should Command your respect Common issues

SECOND GEAR

2006 to 2010 Jeep Commander

Some issues have been reported with electronics, suspension and other systems by owners in online forums, though a Jeep mechanic should be able to check for and diagnose any of the Commander’s common problems. One such problem is a random engine stall-out situation that poses a safety risk. This could be caused by a transmission fluid filter or overly sensitive ignition switch. Ask the vehicle’s seller if they’ve ever experienced this sort of problem.

JUSTIN PRITCHARD

DRIVE@METRONEWS.CA

Taking a place above the Grand Cherokee in the Jeep brand’s product lineup, the Commander was available from 2006 to 2010 inclusive. Based on the Grand Cherokee, it was blockier looking, bigger, and boasted three rows of seating and room for seven occupants. Commander packed plenty of capability and traction on the road less travelled with the Quadra Drive II 4x4 system on board. Look for features like heated leather seats, navigation, a driver computer, parking sensors, power accessories, remote entry, a sunroof and plenty more.

Engine Look for a 3.7-litre V-6 with 210 horsepower, or a 4.7-litre V-8 with 235 horsepower until 2008, and 305 horsepower thereafter. Chrysler’s 5.7-litre HEMI V8 with 330 or 357 horsepower was also available, depending on the year. All models got an automatic transmission.

What owners like

What owners dislike

Owners praise the stereo system, interior and exterior styling, and performance with the HEMI V-8. A comfortable ride, towing power, the braking system and Commander’s offroad capability are also highly rated.

Comfort and space in the Commander’s second and third seating rows are common gripes, as is fuel economy and rearward visibility.

Verdict It’s primarily styling, towing ability and off-road capability that will draw used vehicle shoppers to the Commander. If you’re looking for good fuel mileage, you’d best move to another model.
