Transit pledge proves tempting NDP vow to cover half of operating costs catches attention of TTC chair Plan is contingent on promise to freeze fares KATE ALLEN/TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Coldplay’s Chris Martin, left, and Jonny Buckland perform live from the MuchMusic parking lot in downtown Toronto last night. Coldplay’s new album, Mylo Xyloto, is set to be released Oct. 24. CONTRIBUTED/MUCHMUSIC

She’s known as a right-leaning city councillor, but TTC chair Karen Stintz doesn’t deny the appeal of the Ontario NDP’s public-transit platform. After all, the city has been asking the province to restore its transit operating subsidy for years. Ontario NDP Leader Andrea Horwath has promised that if she wins the Oct. 6 election, her party will take over nearly half of Toronto’s operating subsidy of about $500 million annually for the TTC, including Wheel-Trans. “It would be a huge contribution,” allowing the TTC the reliable funding it needs to operate strategically rather than lurching from one financial crisis to the next, said Stintz. The NDP promise, contingent on a promise to freeze fares for four years, would be worth about $225 million a year. To put that in con-

consider a 10 cent fare hike in the name of eliminating a $101-million projected operating shortfall in 2012. But growing the system would require some flexibility on the issue of the fare freeze, said Stintz. Left-leaning transit blogger Steve Munro agrees, estimating the TTC’s operating needs will grow by about six per cent — about $90 million annually, not including new costs such as opening the Spadina subway extension. “In four years, the TTC’s costs will be $360 million greater than they are today, and if all of this goes to the subsidy account, that will bring Toronto to a subsidy level above $800 million. The provincial share would be more than the entire amount set aside by the NDP for this program in their budget estimates (of $375 million by 20152016),” writes Munro. TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Applause as Port Lands plan passes unanimously

Man shot by Toronto cop, SIU confirms

Doug Ford, who was lobbying colleagues late last week to affirm a Sept. 6 executive committee vote to seize the Port Lands, sat rigid through debate

The Special Investigations Unit has confirmed that a Toronto police officer shot a 24-year-old man “at least once” on Monday. Ankur Patel remains in serious condition at St. Michael’s Hospital after he was shot around 1:30 p.m. Monday near the Eaton Centre. Police spokeswoman Const. Wendy Drummond said the shooting involved “a person with a knife.”

City Coun. Mike Layton is applauded by fellow councillors following his tribute to his late father, Jack Layton, during yesterday’s meeting of city council.

In a rare show of calm after choppy debate that roiled the city, council voted unanimously yesterday to stick with, and speed up, the current Port Lands development plan. All councillors, plus members of the public gallery, erupted in applause after the final vote. Many councillors then stood and turned toward the gallery, giving mem-

bers of the public an ovation for their guiding input. Among the handful who remained seated were Mayor Rob Ford and Coun. Doug Ford, whose zeal to replace Waterfront Toronto’s mixed-use neighbourhood plan with flashier, attractions-based development helped spark the debate. TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Nod for Doug Ford Opponents. During congratulatory speeches about a motion that ditched the mayor’s plan to seize control of the Port Lands from Waterfront Toronto, even left-leaning opponents gave Doug Ford a nod, saying his boisterous talk of a megamall, Ferris wheel and

monorail helped focus public attention on the future of the neglected lakefront. Raising the issue. “Councillor Ford, you done good,” said Coun. Pam McConnell, whose Ward 28 includes part of the Port Lands. “You raised the issue and we’re here to resolve the flurry of discussions.”

Toronto city council has voted unanimously to require that pet stores obtain cats and dogs from humane societies, shelters and rescue groups. The aim is to block stores from obtaining pets from puppy mills. “The goal is to stop animal cruelty,” said Coun. Glenn De Baeremaeker. “I think this is a wonderful day in the city of Toronto for anyone who loves cats, dogs, puppies, and wants to ensure animals are treated humanely.”

Judge takes on Halton cops

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 2011

Mayor. League

Accuses officers of excessive force in two cases Recommends they be sent for retraining RANDY QUAN/TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

A provincial court judge in Halton has taken on police in the region, releasing two rulings in less than a month that rebuke officers for using excessive force. One officer, Const. Erich Paroshy, who works at Halton’s Burlington division, is named in both cases, one of which resulted in a man’s broken arm and the other with a man pepper-sprayed in the face. In both rulings, Ontario Court Justice Lesley Baldwin came down hard on the officers and suggested they be retrained in the appropriate use of force. In the first ruling, released on Aug. 19, Baldwin acquitted Kyle Davidson of assaulting a peace officer, resisting arrest and being intoxicated in public in June 2009. Police believed the 26-

in January 2009 when Bogumil Dyrda was disoriented after a car crash. Police, believing him intoxicated, placed him under arrest, and a struggle ensued. Baldwin rejected the officers’ evidence that they smelled alcohol and said the case “involved the excessive use of police force.” Joseph Bloomenfeld, the Dyrda brothers’ defence lawyer, said Baldwin’s rulings took “courage.” “She had the strength to write a judgment that’s going to ... impact on people that she deals with all the time,” he said. Halton police said they were aware of Baldwin’s latest judgment, and the Professional Standards Bureau is conducting an investigation, spokesman Dave Cross said.

Justice Lesley Baldwin

year-old had kicked at a police cruiser. In the struggle to arrest him, Davidson’s left arm was fractured by Const. Paroshy. Calling police conduct “harsh and callous,” Baldwin dismissed the charges. In the second ruling, released on Sept. 8, Baldwin acquitted brothers Bogumil and Stanislaw Dyrda of assaulting a peace officer, stemming from an incident

Drum teacher acquitted of touching student Food bank use down CONTRIBUTED

A former rock drummer has been found not guilty of fondling a little girl, now 9 years old, while giving her music lessons. Brian Bolliger, 55, was a drummer with True Myth, a progressive rock group from London, Ont., which put out two albums in 1979 and 1981. He had taught music for 29 years.

For more than two years, Bolliger gave the girl weekly drum lessons, but in 2010 she complained to her mother that Bolliger had touched her. The Crown suggested that he put his hand down the girl’s pants and shirt while she practised the drums in his studio. Bolliger repeatedly de-

nied the allegations. “That’s not me,” he insisted. Judge William Bassel dismissed the charges yesterday, saying there were inconsistencies in the girl’s testimony and the Crown had not proved the offence “beyond a reasonable doubt.” TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Food bank use in the Greater Toronto Area has eased to less than 1.1 million visits in the past year, the Daily Bread Food Bank says in its annual report. But those numbers remain “unacceptably high” and are still 14 per cent above 2008, before the recession hit, the report says.

Of 1,082,000 visits to GTA food banks between March 2010 and March 2011, most visits — 908,000 — were in Toronto. That is down from almost 1.2 million visits in the GTA in 2009. Housing costs are the main reason people go hungry, the report says. TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

A town seduced by the written word

CAROLA VYHNAK/TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Uxbridgians are wild about the written word Also nuts about knitting, as it pairs well with reading Their lives are an open book. And no one turns the pages faster or with more fervour than the bookworms of Uxbridge. “We love our books in this town,” declares Ellen Skinner, who devours four a week and keeps a pillow on the floor to catch her ereader in case she dozes off late at night. Sure, lit lovers are everywhere. But consider this: Uxbridge boasts 28 book clubs, including one that has met for 104 years. And people don’t just read the stories — they live them, as they did when the downtown core was magically transformed into Harry Potter’s world of Hogsmeade a few years back.

Literary legends The township of 19,000 has bragging rights as Lucy Maud Montgomery’s home for 15 years. Legends like Timothy Findley, Michael Ondaatje, and Yann Martel didn’t need to be asked twice to drop in for readings.

Uxbridge, in Durham region northeast of Toronto, is also home to one of Canada’s most beloved bookstores, Blue Heron, whose owner Shelley Macbeth’s love of literature “take(s) reading to a new level,” says a fan who helped the 22year-old shop into Canada’s top 10 favourites in a CBC survey. TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

paign. The goal is to force reporters to limit their questions to the only new topic of the day, the one the leader just announced — or more frequently re-announced — even though the campaign will often be on the road for another 12 hours that day and face many other issues. McGuinty is running what critics call a “bubble” campaign, where the leader is mostly protected from reporters.

Arab Spring a sign of hope: UN

New United Nations General Assembly opens World must find solution for Israel-Palestinian peace: Sarkozy SPENCER PLATT/GETTY IMAGES

Global leaders pointed to democratic uprisings across the Arab world as a sign of hope in a world wracked by conflict, climate change and other crises yesterday. The Arab Spring that saw peaceful protesters rise up against repressive regimes was a major focus of this year’s ministerial meeting, along with the Palestinians’ bid for UN membership. “From Tunis to Cairo, from Tripoli to Damascus, from Benghazi to Sanaa, populations too long crushed by oppression rose up and claimed the right to be free at last,” French President Nicolas Sarkozy said. Sarkozy proposed an

Israel-Palestinian peace process timetable, with talks to resume in a month and a final deal to be reached in one year as part of a stepped-up effort to

push Palestinian leaders to abandon an application for full UN membership that the U.S. and Israel oppose. The Palestinians have pledged to submit their request for full statehood this week, a move the U.S. has said it will veto if it comes before the UN Security Council, where it holds a permanent seat. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said the Palestinians deserve a state, Israel needs security and the stalemate over reviving negotiations must be broken. He pledged the UN’s “unrelenting efforts to help achieve that peace through a negotiated settlement.” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Migrants clashed with police and residents on the tiny Italian island of Lampedusa yesterday. Television footage showed riot police wielding clubs and beating the migrants as they jumped from a balcony near the island’s commercial port. The clashes came a day after migrants set their overcrowded holding centre on fire to protest Italy’s policy of forced repatriations. Some 26,000 Tunisians and 28,000 people of other nationalities from Libya have arrived in Lampedusa this year since the beginning of the Arab revolts. Residents on the island have complained they are being overwhelmed with

Angry residents also assaulted TV crews and other journalists covering the rioting, telling them to leave the island alone. The clashes left several people injured, the reports said. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Trio headed for hideout? Police say bank robbery netted fugitive siblings $5,200 At least nine firearms retrieved from vehicle A sister and two brothers had planned to head to Mexico with money stolen in a Georgia bank robbery, then obtain fraudulent documents and elude authorities before the trio, now accused in a cross-country crime spree, were caught in Colorado, a detective said. The details in the case emerged during a hearing Tuesday, with Colorado Springs police Det. Larry

Dyer saying the youngest of the three, Ryan Edward Dougherty, 21, told him that he hatched the idea the day he was sentenced to register as a sex offender. Dougherty had earlier been convicted of sending sexually explicit text messages to an 11-year-old girl. Colorado District Judge Claude Appel ruled that prosecutors had enough evidence to place Dougherty,

his brother Dylan Stanley Dougherty, 26, and their sister Lee Grace Dougherty, 29, on trial for crimes related to a high-speed chase and shootout. The siblings are accused of bank robbery, shooting at police officers and they are suspected of two car thefts. None have entered pleas. A scheduling conference was set for tomorrow.

Memoir out today

Clifford Olson is led away from court in Regina, Sask., on April 4, 1996.

Few tears shed for dying Olson Clifford Olson, Canada’s most reviled serial killer, is just days from death, families of his victims say. The news sparked an outpouring of vitriol yesterday. A national newspaper was forced to block most of the public commentary on its website — an illustration of how Canada feels about Olson. “A good-news story,” wrote one reader.

“His final judgment will be in a higher court,” said another. Sharon Rosenfeldt, the mother of one of Olson’s 11 victims, said Olson — serving 11 concurrent life terms — has been moved to a hospital in Quebec. Rosenfeldt said she was told by a Corrections Canada official that the 71-year-old killer’s cancer has spread. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Soldiers and police block o an area where 35 bodies lay under an overpass in Veracruz, Mexico.

Grisly rush-hour find Gunmen dump 35 bodies on city street in Mexico Local media reported 12 of the victims were women Suspected drug traffickers dumped 35 bodies at rush hour beneath a busy overpass in the heart of Veracruz city, Mexico, as gunmen pointed weapons at frightened drivers. Horrified motorists sent Twitter messages warning others to avoid the area near the biggest shopping mall in Boca del Rio, part of the metropolitan area of Veracruz city.

The gruesome gesture marked a sharp escalation in cartel violence in Veracruz state, which sits on a route for drugs and Central American migrants heading north. The Zetas drug cartel has been battling other gangs for control of the state. Veracruz state Attorney General Reynaldo Escobar Perez said the bodies were left piled in two trucks and

on the ground under the overpass. Among the bodies was a local police officer who had gone missing two weeks ago. Many of the victims were strangled, some bled to death and one person had been shot. State Gov. Javier Duarte said an intelligence database shows that all 35 victims had a criminal background. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Recent incidents in France and Japan are reminders of nuclear danger Editor Melita Kuburas tours ground zero and villages surrounding site of the world’s worst nuclear disaster

Into the radiation zone: Metro visits MELITA KUBURAS

@METRONEWS.CA IN UKRAINE

Security guards at the entrance to the 30-kilometre exclusion zone have a list of rules for our group as we wait to enter the contaminated area. “Do not touch anything, wear long sleeves and closed-toe shoes.” This is followed by a stern caution from the guide taking UN Development Programme volunteers inside. “Remember, you are not tourists here.” After the recent

Chornobyl

Fukushima disaster in Japan, the International Atomic Energy Agency announced this week a projected slowdown on the growth of nuclear power. Chornobyl to this day is evidence of what happens when things go wrong. More than 25 years after the Chornobyl meltdown, about 3,500 people are still required at the plant just to keep safety mechanisms operating. It can’t be fully shut down. Another 3,000 work as maintenance, security and decontamination staff outside of it — although they only work two weeks a month, due to

high radiation levels. Standing in front of reactor No. 4, which is enclosed in an aging, rusted tomb called the “sarcophagus,” our beeping hand-held dosimeter shows external radiation levels to be about 30 times higher than in the capital, Kyiv. “But this isn’t the most radioactive place we will see,” the guide says with a sardonic grin. “I will show you where it’s much higher.” This spot turns out to be a patch of moss behind the cultural centre in the abandoned town of Prypiat. The town used to be home to

about 50,000 people who evacuated in about three hours the day after the accident. To avoid panic, residents were told they would be returning to their homes, so they packed light. Their belongings were left to decay, were destroyed in the decontamination process or were stolen by looters. Some personal items are still strewn amid the rubble — Soviet posters, children’s books, an old tennis shoe in the Cultural Centre’s gymnasium. The town today is just decrepit buildings amid overgrown foliage.

Giovanni Mozzarelli, program officer at the United Nations Development Programme in Ukraine, holds a dosimeter in front of nuclear reactor No. 4 in Chornobyl during a day trip to the exclusion zone on Aug. 30. The external-radiation reading on the beeping dosimeter showed levels to be about 30 times higher than in Ukraine’s capital, Kyiv.

While the Ukraine government is legally bound to deliver subsidies to those living in affected regions, the average resident receives the equivalent of less than 50 cents per month. That’s not nearly enough, considering that they had been promised salary bonuses for finding work and money to pay for students’ breakfasts.

Dmytro Petrushenko, head of the Bordianka District State administration, said that if all of the promised subsidies were paid out in full, it would amount to one fifth of Ukraine’s entire state budget. “We need a radical change — an elimination of all subsidies,” the government official advocates.

Price rise temporary, experts say Canada’s inflation rate jumped last month, but with the economy’s foundations in quicksand, there is little prospect of a Bank of Canada response. The gain in the consumer price index to 3.1 per cent, from 2.7 in July, reverses a recent trend towards more moderate inflation. Bank of Canada gov-

business ernor Mark Carney and most analysts remain convinced that the higher-than-expected price increases are due to temporary factors. Bank of Montreal economist Michael Gregory adds that August’s jump was also partly due to one-off “administered” increases, such as adjustments to electricity rates and insurance premiums.

Apple to unveil iPhone 5 Device on sale in U.S. within few weeks of announcement, sources say MARK LENNIHAN/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE

Apple’s newly minted CEO Tim Cook is expected to make his first big product announcement on Oct. 4, the day sources say Apple will launch the highly anticipated iPhone 5. AllThingsD, a widely trusted tech blog, pegged the early October date after months of speculation and conflicting reports. Of course, the blog stipulated that Apple could switch the date at any time. The pressure is on Cook to live up to Steve Jobs’ famous announcements, where the now-legendary co-founder of Apple would convince millions to buy the company’s latest and greatest technology. To reinforce his credibility as the new leader of the world’s largest company, Cook will likely “quarterback” the announcement, according to AllThingsD.

Tim Cook, Apple’s new CEO, is expected to reinforce his credibility as the new leader of the world’s largest company by “quarterbacking” the iPhone 5 announcement.

The Twitterverse was in an uproar on the news, with “Apple to announce iPhone 5” trending worldwide for the majority of

yesterday morning. No word yet when iPhone lovers in Canada will get a chance to buy the product. Fans on this

Like it or not, Facebook overhauls your home page FACEBOOK.COM

Facebook has launched the biggest overhaul of users’ home pages in years, upping the stakes against competitors and providing “a nearly constant stream of stuff to look at,” according to one tech analyst. The new News Feed, the latest and largest in a month of roll-outs, eliminates the need to toggle from new posts to top posts and combines all the “top stories” at the top,

The CRTC is blocking companies from offering television programs exclusively to their mobile or Internet subscribers in new rules for cable and telecom operators that also own TV networks. The regulator said yesterday that any program broadcast on television, including hockey games and other live events, must be made available to competitors under fair and reasonable terms. However, the CRTC will allow companies to offer exclusive programming to their Internet or mobile customers if it is produced specifically for the Internet or a mobile device.

Cartoon by Michael de Adder Worth Mentioning U.S. REAL ESTATE. In America, it’s starting to feel as if there are two housing markets. One for the rich and one for everyone else. Consider foreclosureravaged Detroit. In the historic Green Acres district, a haven for hipsters, a pristine, three-bedroom brick Tudor recently sold for $6,000 US. Yet just 25 kilometres away, in the posh suburban enclave of Birmingham, bidding wars are back. Multimillion-dollar mansions are selling quickly. Sales this August were up 21 per cent from the previous year. In the luxury sector, the recession is a memory and sales and prices are rising. But everywhere else, the market is moving sideways or getting worse. In the housing market inhabited by most Americans, prices have fallen 30 per cent or more since the peak in 2007. That’s a steeper decline than during the Depression. Almost a quarter of American homeowners owe more on their house than it’s worth. Another quarter have less than 20 per cent equity.

War Horse starts its run in Toronto in February 2012.

Get on your war horse Famous near life-size puppet takes Toronto by storm

BACKSTAGE PASS IAN GORMELY

METRO TORONTO

Torontonians are used to seeing stars in town promoting their latest project. But it’s not very often said star can be packed away into a box and shipped as cargo.

But then, Joey, the titular equestrian in War Horse, is no ordinary star. A puppet, Joey is the culmination of 30 years of work from the Handspring Puppet Company. Founded by Basil Jones and Adrian Kohler in 1971, the company quietly built a reputation in their native South Africa until the opportunity to adapt Michael Morpurgo’s children’s novel for the National Theatre of Great Britain came along (Steven Spielberg’s version hits the big screen

in December). “Adrian’s father was a cabinet and yacht maker and his mother was a puppeteer,” explains Jones. “When we met at art school in 1971, puppets were all he could think of.” Both were on hand this Monday as Joey made his premiere in Hogtown to explain how the construction of this two-thirds lifesize puppet. It takes three people to operate: one remains next to the puppet controlling head and facial move-

ments while another two carry him (and anyone who happens to be riding him) on their shoulders while manning his legs. All three have to move in unison as Joey moves from a short trot to a brisk gallop. The horse is covered in mesh to allow the actors to see where they’re going. But what was most impressive was the level of detail they’d built into Joey, giving the actors control over his ears, tail and even his breathing, each of

which they call important emotional indicators. “The small movements that a puppet does are very important” explains Kohler. “One of the things that we like to think of is people in the audience nudging the person next to them saying, ‘Did you see that?’ The movement is subtle enough for you to think that other people might not have seen it.” War Horse starts Feb. 2012. Tickets go on sale Monday, Sept. 26.

Double the pleasure Sarah Michelle Gellar plays twins in new show Ringer AMBER RAY

SCENE@METRONEWS.CA

Fans of Sarah Michelle Gellar have double the reason to tune in to her new drama, Ringer. In this relationship-driven thriller, the former Buffy the Vampire Slayer star plays identical twins — Bridget, a former addict who is on the run after witnessing a murder, and Siobhan, a New York City socialite with a seemingly perfect life. When Siobhan goes missing after the estranged sisters had just begun to reconcile, Bridget assumes her twin’s identity, only to learn Siobhan was hiding more than a few dark secrets of her own. That essentially means Gellar is playing three characters in the series — Bridget, Siobhan, and Bridget-pretending-to-be-Siobhan.

Proving herself

HANDOUT

Bello has nothing but love for her new show, Prime Suspect AMBER RAY

SCENE@METRONEWS.CA

Make no mistake — Global’s Prime Suspect is not a remake of the classic British crime thriller starring Helen Mirren. Aside from title, what it borrows from its overseas counterpart is a strong, yet flawed, central character determined to prove she’s a damn good homicide detective, no matter what the men in her squad think of her. On the eve of the big premiere, we caught up with star Maria Bello, who plays Detective Jane Timoney with an absorbing wit and attitude. Does the title Prime Suspect help create buzz or draw criticism from fans of the British series?

You know, we’ve been so lucky in a way. People have recognized immediately that it’s a way different show. So then the comparisons stop. Did you have any apprehensions stepping into this role?

Before I took the job, I said no to it. I was scared of being put in some sort of a box and not being able to be collaborative or creative, which often happens in TV.

I didn’t want to not see my son; my friends who work on these kinds of shows sometimes work 14 or 5 hours a day. I met the producers — Pete Berg, Sarah Aubrey, Alex Cunningham, they’re so brilliant — and they said to me, “It won’t be like that. We trust you to create this character how you see this character and collaborate with us. And you’ll never work more than 12 hours a day and you will have a life.” And they’ve lived up to their promises and it’s just the most extraordinary job I’ve had. Can you talk about making Jane Timoney your own character? Details like her scarves and the hat and smoking — how much input did you have in those little things that are so much a part of her?

But I really fought for it and said, “Listen, she has her own style. I know great policewomen, as well as men, who have great style.”

Maria Bello stars in Prime Suspect, which airs tonight on Global

3OROCK, ROCKS WHAT THE WHAT?

The brilliant Amy Stofsky, the costume designer, she and I had the exact same idea for the clothing, which is an updated Katharine Hepburn. You know, that kind of male-female look that she’s really feminine, but at the same time wears these kind of sexy men’s clothes. And I went in that direction and at first the (producers) were like, “Well, uh, I don’t know.”

The remake tries to distance itself from the camp of the 1970s version, striving to be a more grounded action series. The first episode begins with two Angels — a former thief played by Rachael Taylor and a disgraced police officer played by Annie Ilonzeh — seeing the third member of their team killed during a mission. Their boss Charlie Townsend and his assistant Bosley — played by Ramon Rodriguez — persuade the survivors to recruit a new Angel, a street racer played by Minka Kelly. With Drew Barrymore — an Angel in the 2000 and 2003 films — serving as an executive producer, the show was developed by Al Gough and Miles Millar, the duo behind the hit WB show Smallville, which followed the exploits of a young, pre-Superman Clark Kent. ABC had been planning to bring back Charlie’s Angels for several years when Gough and Millar got involved last spring. They acknowledge that fans have certain expectations and will scream if they aren’t met. The original Charlie’s Angels was a cultural phenomenon when it debuted in 1976, making stars of Farrah Fawcett, Kate Jackson and Jaclyn Smith.

The first episode of the new Charlie’s Angels is scheduled to air at 7 p.m. ET Thursday on CTV, the 35th anniversary of the original’s premiere. “When you say you’re going to reboot Charlie’s Angels, you certainly are just hanging a big target on your back,” Gough said. “What you want to do ideally is reconnect with an audience that loved the show when they were younger and also bring new fans to it.” But the new show starts fresh: These Angels aren’t saints. In the original, the women had all trained to become L.A. police officers but sexism in the department had left them relegated to menial positions, so Charlie recruited them to be real detectives. In the new series, the Angels all have sketchy pasts. Charlie recruits them to give them a second chance, using the skills they developed as criminals to do good. “They’re sort of Angels with dirty faces,” Gough said. Taylor said she and her co-stars are looking forward to putting a modern twist on the mythology. “Even though they were extremely cool and successful, we just want to do our own version,” Taylor said.

From the trailer park to Afghanistan Director Mike Clattenberg talks about moving from the Trailer Park Boys to more serious fare Afghan Luke story of a reporter’s attempt to gather the truth in Afghanistan RICHARD CROUSE

SCENE@METRONEWS.CA

So many movies are being made in Halifax these days the city is informally nicknamed Haliwood. Hollywood fare like Titanic and Dolores Claiborne have frequently used the city as a backdrop but lately Canadian filmmakers have taken back the streets from their Hollywood counterparts. Thom Fitzgerald’s new film Cloudburst recently filmed there, Hobo with a Shotgun cast a lurid light on its streets and Charlie Zone is a thriller set against the city’s soft underbelly. “There’s a lot going on in the city,” says native Nova Scotian Mike Clattenberg. He should know. As the director of The Trailer Park Boys he made seven seasons of the show and two spinoff movies in “the Fax.” His new film, Afghan Luke, starring Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines star Nick Stahl, was conceived in Halifax, but set in a place where “everything is true but the facts.” A gonzo look at one reporter’s efforts to report on the truth of what is happening in Afghanistan, it’s a departure from the work the director is best known for. “I loved the 10 years we did Trailer Park Boys,” says Clattenberg. “There was insane drunk lunacy; blowing up cars. “All that stuff was really fun but it was really nice doing something entirely different, 80 per cent drama, 20 per cent

insanity, whereas Trailer Park was the other way around,” he says. While interiors and post production were done in Halifax, Clattenberg had to look further afield for exteriors. “The first gigantic challenge was to shoot a film that is 90 per cent exteriors, set in Afghanistan, in Canada during the rainy season,” says Clattenberg. “We eventually found Ashcroft and Cache Creek, British Columbia, about five hours from Vancouver.” The setting mimicked Afghanistan’s rugged, mountainous terrain so much the film’s technical advisor Wafi Gran gave it the thumbs up. “He said the next time he pines for Afghanistan he’s just going to go there and hang out. “He really thought that it looked like his home town,” In one respect, however, the location was almost too authentic. “I didn’t expect dust storms, but we had them,” Clattenberg says. “It really worked for the film, but the most dangerous thing for our gear is sand. “The guys had to work three and four hours after wrap every night cleaning the equipment because when the sand came up, we were like, ‘Let’s go. We have to shoot!’”

Harry Connick Jr.: The dolphin whisperer

HANDOUT

Actor says he formed close bond with a very special marine mammal RICHARD CROUSE

SCENE@METRONEWS.CA

Harry Connick Jr. says working with his co-star everyday was “really in-

credible.” 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 Clear-

water Marine Aquarium, the giant marine mammal was equipped with a prosthetic tail that allows it to swim normally. “When you really got to spend time with her you

got the sense that she was aware of your feelings more than your presence,” he says. “There were times when I had to apply the prosthetic to her, when you thought she could wipe me out with her tail if she wanted to but she was very calm. It was strange, like an otherworldly type of communication. “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.” “When we got her she was about 60 pounds and about two-and-a-half or three feet long,” says David

Yates, CEO and director of the Clearwater Marine Aquarium. “Very, very small. A dolphin that small, with that kind of trauma, is not expected to live at all.” But Winter defied expectations and is now an inspiration for visitors to the aquarium, and starting this weekend, to movie audiences. “I know exactly how the movie is going to impact people because we see it every day around here in real life,” says Yates. “Winter is a young dolphin who lost her tale and wouldn’t give up, simply wouldn’t quit. People look at her, especially kids and they realize she is different, and what kid doesn’t think they are different? “But they look at Winter and go, ‘You know, she’s different and she’s OK. I’m different; I’m going to be OK.’ That’s the essence of the movie.”

Jennifer Aniston wasn’t pleased with ex-husband Brad Pitt’s comments to Parade magazine about their marriage last week, according to Us Weekly. “She was annoyed. She thought it was rude and inappropriate,” a source says. But her team of handlers and publicists “went ballistic” — and haven’t been satisfied with Pitt’s mea culpa after the fact, according to another source. “No one believes his words were taken out of context. He said what he said,” the source says. “We think he’s jealous she’s in love.”

West Hollywood moves toward ban on fur sales but leather isn’t affected

BEST TAKE ON SPORTY: NICOLE FARHI Spring’s biggest trend has looked a bit young and junior at some shows. But Farhi made it look clean, polished and cool for 9-to5ers who can’t necessarily get away with wearing see-through mesh jerseys and patchwork leggings in the office. Her clean, crisp, minimalist shorts, blouses and dresses in white- and lemon-coloured cotton made a strong case for simplicity.

THE GAME

BEST PARTY ATMOSPHERE: TOPSHOP UNIQUE Philip Green’s high street extravaganza feels like a hotter and hotter ticket with each season. A preshow cocktail hour filled with snacks, bubbly and famous faces (Anna Wintour, Naomi Campbell and Kelis) set the stage for what ended up feeling like one big party. The clothes were a clever mix of urban street wear and opulent Egyptian references.

NEW NAME TO KNOW: J.W. ANDERSON

BIGGEST CROWD PLEASER: CHRISTOPHER KANE

The Brit has only been designing women’s wear for a little over a year, but is already on the tongues of nearly every major editor. The biggest selling point: Unusually constructed clothing that boasts rarefied craftsmanship, at affordable prices. Keep an eye out for his patchworked leather, mesh and cotton jackets and trousers.

He showed a subversive take on those lady-like, Aline brocade dresses that dominated the ’60s by slicing them and inserting sheer panels, tricking them out with crystal embroidery and plastering them with plastic flowers (kind of like your grandmother’s old shower curtains.) They were expertly constructed and looked unlike anything else shown in the past two weeks.

MOST SURPRISING: BURBERRY It was a bit of a shock to see models walk down Burberry Prorsum’s runway in wild wax prints and traditional African shapes. This is Burberry, after all, a brand that waves its old English heritage around like the friend you have who never misses a chance to remind you that she’s a descendant of [insert name of old, titled, moneyed family here.] That said, the new look breathed some life into the house’s repertoire.

Blast from the past ’70s silhouettes and ’60s preppy highlight fall style trends STEPHANIE ORFORD FOR METRO

Don’t let the Indian summer fool you, fall is just around the corner and it’s time to dress the part. Frankly, with these trends afoot we can’t wait for the leaves to start falling. Karen Richter, Showroom Manager for H&M Canada, shared her top fall/winter trends for 2011. Thick-knit sweater with leather sleeves, $69.95, and blanket scarf, $59.95, from H&M. Brash Zippy Riding Boot, right, $79.99 at Payless. Isabel Toledo for Payless Lazer Hidden Platform Shootie, 79.99. ANDREAS SJÖ D IN/H&M PHOTO

The ’70s Womanly silhouettes define the ’70s fashion revival this season, like skirts and dresses that hit below the knee. Wide-legged dress pants can be paired with a blouse that ties in a large, floppy bow at the collar. Go for a relaxed tailored look with a trench coat worn over flared dress pants or jeans. Key colours are camel, cognac and orange. The ’60s This look is more preppy and girlish with short and straight silhouettes. The A-line shift dress is a key piece, and is best worn with a high-heeled loafer and classic accessories like a multitude of jangling metal bangles. Important colours are beige and navy with bright pink, mustard or orange accents. Glam Think rich colours and textures. Expect dramatic black and jewel tones — like crimson, emerald,

cobalt — in sumptuous fabrics like satin, velvet and silk fringe. Wear this look now in black and deep red nail colours. The trend will become more visible in clothing as the holiday season approaches. Important pieces for women include the men’s style tuxedo and the kimono jacket. Flower power The floral prints that have sprouted up in seasons past show no signs of withering. Warm up the fall chill with vibrant flower print shirts, pants, dresses, or shoes. Layering This trend is perfect for cold Canadian winters. It’s all about volume — piling on layers and layers of knits. A tunic worn over loose trousers, or a chunky knit sweater dress over wool leggings is great for keeping warm this season, especially when topped with a coat, boots and a shearling hat.

Footwear The chunky heel — It’s back for fall in pumps with or without a platform, booties and knee-high boots (to wear under those long ’70s skirts). Western influence — Look for boots in rich brown leathers and suedes that seem like they might belong in a stirrup. Try softening the look with a floral dress. Curved heel — These quirky shoes can help make an otherwise conservative outfit a little more playful. Conspicuous socks — Keep your tootsies warm and beguile onlookers by wearing solid or patterned socks with your high heels. Best worn scrunched down near the ankle.

Faux fur It’s a big trend this season. H&M will be selling a wide range of faux fur garments and accessories including jackets, vests, faux fur trimmed sweaters, coats, and even bags and boots. Off the runway, the trend is best worn in small doses.

My initial inspiration was that I wanted to take the

customer on a journey... that’s what I’m going to say for now...we’re going on a journey.

Last time we spoke with you, you were just about to show your first Attitude Jay Manuel collection and the public hadn’t seen it yet. Now that it’s arrived in Sears stores and the billboards are everywhere, how are you feeling?

To see it all here and realize that we’re past the runway show and it’s on the floor and seeing the excitement... it’s really been a kind of like a weird dream to be honest. And now that we’re in a normal work flow and have been moving into spring/summer — the show is in three weeks — we realize we’ve all learned so much from this experience. What kind of feedback have you received from customers?

It’s been very positive. What I love to hear and the best compliment I can get is when someone tweets me and says, ‘I wear a size 14 and I went in and found a suit that fit me’. That makes me feel good because when working with the pattern drafters I was literally pinning and chalking and working on those pieces to make sure they fit well. If I came upon the Attitude collection in Sears and a Jay Manuel angel appeared on my shoulder what would he

One of the things that I would say is that fashion should never be intimidating. It’s there to service you. And secondly, if I could guide you somewhere in particular I would say that the most universally flattering silhouette is the wide-legged trouser. If you haven’t tried one on before, reach out and try one because you’d be so surprised how it fits. You’ve held so many titles in the fashion industry. How does creative director rank in comparison?

As Katz puts it, “Greenbuild is packed with opportunities to experience the architectural, political and financial capital of Canada (I’ll have to tell her about Ottawa), while learning about its long legacy of green building leadership and innovation.” Katz encourages delegates to “take a tour inside the inner workings of Toronto’s greenest buildings.

The prefab stone age Toronto’s condominiums go back to the future with precast concrete The material stands up longer to exposure to the elements and also has environmental benefits DUNCAN MCALLISTER

DUNCAN MCALLISTER

@METRONEWS.CA

In days of old, Toronto condominiums were almost entirely constructed with precast concrete exteriors. These buildings had a stately look to them, almost like the sandstone structures of a bygone era. More recently, most condos have either a glass wall construction or are surrounded by glass balconies. We’re beginning to see a return to the precast trend, and in addition to aesthetic qualities, there are other benefits as well. Precast stands up longer to exposure to the elements, as it is less porous than brick or stone and requires less exterior maintenance. There’s also an environmental advantage. It acts as a layer of insulation and for building owners, that can add up to savings on heating and cooling. Most Torontonians are well aware of the recent spate of incidents involving glass panels falling from condominium towers. Precast offers a welcome safety factor. The fact that the windows are set into the exterior walls means that glass panels are unlikely to drop out. Governor General Award winning architect, Stephen Teeple, designer of OpArt lofts in Oakville, talks to Metro about the

DUNCAN MCALLISTER

use of precast concrete. What was your rationale to go with precast exteriors with OpArt?

We’re looking to do something kind of fun and a little bit more artistic and so we had imagined a kind of randomly perforated solid as an artistic representation of the building and the precast was a really good way to achieve that. We want to do some special finishing on the precast to make sure that it’s very crisp and bright and not the same old look, so we’re actually going to stain it bright white.

The material can offer a clean and classic look.

What advantages can be realized with the use of precast?

We can get a greater level of insulation, better proportion of window to wall and windows that don’t fall out of the buildings. I live in a condo and have an all glass facing bedroom and it seems fairly bizarre sometimes. So precast is good for insulation?

We can get a good amount of insulation behind all of the precast, which is always better than glass. Even though glass has improved in its performance over the years, it’ll still never be as good as a solid surface. But it’s the artistic expression that was the true genesis. Are there other condo devel-

opments using precast?

In downtown Toronto there’s some very nice ones that use a mix of window wall and precast, there’s a number of them around. It’s a fairly efficient material as well, in terms of construction timing and so on, so it has a lot of advantages. You do see it on other buildings, there’s a sort of more standard of language of it I would say, and this is using the same technology

to achieve a different look and feel.

Advantages Precast concrete is very versatile, as it can be moulded and cast into various shapes. It gives the designer flexibility in terms of ornate structures and can be surfaced in different ways.

Precast concrete is less porous than brick or stone and requires less exterior maintenance.

CHILDREN AND JOINT HOME OWNERSHIP LEGAL MATTERS

JEFFREY COWAN HOME @METRONEWS.CA

A. I am getting older and thinking of my kids and their inheritance. My house is my most valuable asset and it was

mentioned to me by a friend that to avoid estate taxes on the value of my home when I pass away, I can transfer the ownership to my children and myself. Is this a good suggestion?

A: There is no problem doing the actual transfer to one or more of your children and yourself, which when held jointly, allows for a ‘right of survivorship’ thereby transferring

your ownership to the remaining owners when you die without becoming an estate asset. This of course means there is no estate tax payable on the value of the house. However, there are some concerns that you need to consider before you take this step. 1. If you place one or more of your children on the title to your house and they have their own home, the

increase in the value of the property from when they were transferred onto title to the date of your death is taxable on their portion under capital gains tax (it is not their primary residence). If you plan on living a good long time from now, this could lead to some serious tax consequences for your kids when you die. 2. If there is any outstanding mortgage or line of

credit on your home, you must pay Land Transfer Tax on the portion attributable to your child’s ownership. 3. If you are transferring the house to just one of your children, you should specifically state in your Will that the home should be sold and the value of the transaction be split between your children, otherwise, the owner/child may be tempted to claim

it as their own and cause huge strife amongst your beneficiaries. Indeed, transferring the title to your kids and you is a form of estate planning that can be effective in reducing the estate tax burden but it should be entered into with care and proper tax/legal advice.

From a rented space to a place to call home THINKSTOCK.COM

A good bed and headboard can give “a sense of permanence.”

Living in a rented apartment can feel like a floating liaison But that doesn’t mean you can’t have some fun — well, for a short time at least RICHARD PECKETT

LIFE@METRONEWS.CA METRO WORLD NEWS LOS ANGELES

We’ve all lived in those dreadfully poky, rented city apartments that have the personality of a monastic cell. But rather than seeing renting a flat as a state of limbo between homeleaver and homeowner, we should embrace the space and make it our own (but do see tenancy agreement for dos and don’ts). Thankfully, Kishani Perera is an LA-based interior designer whiz to the stars (including funny man Ben Stiller and cult favourite Gary Oldman). Here are her tips to help perk up your pad.

Give it some personality “You’ve got to commit to making it your own — it’s not just a transient space. Paint it. Give it some warmth with a soft colour

wash of blue, grey or even taupe just to get rid of that hotel feel,” instructs Perera. “Remember, the floor is a canvas too. Dress it with a patterned or textured rug,” she adds.

Bed down “Buy a good bed and headboard — it gives your bedroom a sense of permanence. A futon or a floating mattress won’t do,” our expert says. You don’t live in a crack den so, “It’s worth it, if only for a short time and you can always reupholster or add throw cushions to give it a new look.”

All good things come in small packages “People tend to buy tiny pieces of furniture for tiny spaces, which actually makes it look smaller,” Perera explains. Create an optical illusion in any space by, “playing with the scale by utilizing the height. Tall

“People tend to buy tiny furniture for tiny spaces, which actually makes it look smaller.” INTERIOR DESIGNER KISHANI PERERA

bookcases and large mirrors draw the eye up and away from the cramped floor space. Contrary to popular belief, painting dark colours creates the illusion of a larger space.”

Go wild with whimsy Your home is not a hospital ward, so do try to avoid stark sterility with something similar to Perera’s curveball solution. “It’s nice to have one crazy element of whimsy. Maybe an antique disco ball. Just something that gives it a kooky, personal touch.”

Save the pennies “Window drapes are not worth the splurge. They

rarely work in the next property. Cheap solutions such as white sheer drapes from IKEA are inexpensive and give a room some added texture and feeling.” You can be a Scrooge elsewhere too. “Coffee tables can be bought cheaply and change the whole ambience of a room. One year you could have a lacquered red one — the next a Moroccan style,” the expert muses.

Sofa Keep it simple. Templeton apartment sofa, $3,895, jonathanadler.com

Focus Walls

Pros • Adds drama to a small recess or niche. • Wallpapers can be pricey but not if you go all frugal and stick to just one wall. • It’s an easy way to express your flair without going off-the-wall!

THROWAWAY FUN Curtains One size certainly doesn’t fit all. Chloe Gauze curtains, $20, urbanoutfitters.com

Keep walls sacred “Use a decal wallpaper, which are easy to take down and nowadays they don’t look too juvenile.” Yes, papering a rented pad does read a little drastic, so here’s one for the less nasty types among you: “I’m big on placing knick-knacks or candles in groupings around the room — they’re interesting, fuss-free and you’ll save on major revamping,” shares our interior supremo.

Cons • You may be in danger of scaring people with your split personality. • It’s popular with provincial hair salons — enough said. • You’re only creating a dilemma for yourself in the decorating department

gar, because of its acidity, can be good for (cleaning) hard water and soap scum,” said Rebecca Sutton, a senior scientist with the Environmental Working Group, a public interest group devoted to protecting health and the environment. Baking soda, on the other hand, is alkaline, said Annie B. Bond, author of books on green living, including Home Enlightenment. Mix the baking soda with some water and make a paste, and it can be used as a scrub. And don’t forget the soap — a mild castile soap made from olive or vegetable oils. Some solutions for typical bathroom trouble spots:

rinse with hot water,” Consumer Reports’ Greener Choices website says. “You might have to repeat the procedure more than once or leave the baking soda and vinegar to ‘cook’ overnight.”

THE BATHTUB

THE TOILET

Vinegar will help get rid of the soap scum. If you need to scour, try a paste of baking soda and water.

“The toilet bowl is difficult, even under the best of circumstances,” Bond said. “Go to a health food store and get a really good bathroom toilet product.” For those who want to try a homemade product, Consumer Reports suggests pouring a cup (250 ml) of borax into the toilet and letting it set overnight. “In the morning, scrub and flush,” it said. “For an extra-strength cleaner, add 1/4 cup (50 ml) vinegar to the borax.”

THE SINK

You can brighten the sink and “get the white back” by pouring in vinegar and leaving it there for a while, Bond said. Also, try the soft scrub made from baking soda and water. “It’s not a matter of elbow grease. It’s a matter of letting it set for a period of time,” she said. THE DRAIN

“To de-grease and sweeten sink and tub drains, pour 1/2 cup (125 ml) of baking soda down drain followed by 1 cup (250 ml) vinegar; let bubble for 15 minutes;

‘Greenwashing’ Sutton cautions consumers to be alert for “greenwashing,” in which a company promotes the one green aspect of the product but doesn’t give the full picture of other ingredients. Go for products that are biodegradable and solventfree, have a bio base, and are low in volatile organic compounds.

I then left these near my side door, under the bench, where I would sit to tie my shoes. Every time I would walk the dogs, I trained them to sit as soon as we got inside the house and I would then use the clean, dry cloths to wipe their feet.

Heirloom linens back en vogue Craftsmanship and uniqueness of fine old linens is drawing decorators who like to mix old and new Place a vintage quilt on a modern slab bed or dress an antique lace tablecloth with chic tableware J. BOULAY/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Contemporary home decor is yielding a little this season to a more traditional style evocative of the Edwardian and Victorian eras. We’re seeing steamer trunks used as tables, Victorian illustrative prints and wallpapers, and new versions of period furniture. If you’re interested in experimenting with this look without going all in, consider vintage linens.

Prepare your garden for winter

ISTOCK

Stop pests from setting up in your veggie patch in the cooler months Now’s the time to plant spring bulbs pers flare — with a great reveal at the end.

DIY IDEAS Once the cooler weather arrives there are many things that gardeners — both pro and amateur alike — should be doing to keep their landscapes healthy. Follow these simple guidelines through the fall and your efforts will be rewarded in the spring, with a garden that looks better than ever thanks to the work you’re doing now. From simple upkeep to major overhauls, Renovation Realities airs on DIY Network Canada, proving that even in home improvement the truth is often stranger than fiction. Follow these renos as budgets skyrocket and tem-

Lawn care Now is the time to start adding new seed to dead or bare patches on your lawn. After spreading it, ensure you keep the new seeds moist by watering them daily until they germinate. Do your best to keep falling leaves off the seeds, without disrupting them from the ground. Vegetable gardens At this time of year you must clean up your vegetable garden as the old plant debris that is found there becomes a home for pests and diseases in the cooler months. So get it off the garden and into the compost pile.

There are still some crops that are great going into fall that will keep your vegetable garden active, including broccoli, kale, and squash. Most of these fall crops actually taste better after a few light frosts, so be patient with them! Landscaping This is the absolute best time of year to plant trees and shrubs because it allows months for a healthy root system to develop without the foliage baking in the heat of summer. Once planted, ensure your new plants are watered at least once a week. Flower gardens Plant your spring bulbs now, or store them in a cool, dry place.

A little landscaping now will reap beautiful rewards in the spring.

Start thinking about your spring colours and plant bulbs for tulips, daffodils, crocus, iris, and hy-

acinth. You can also divide your perennials and plant perennial seeds for next

spring. RENOVATION REALITIES AIRS WEEKDAYS AT 8:30 P.M. ET/PT ON DIY NETWORK CANADA

BLUE JAYS

Former Blue Jay Vernon Wells hit a home run and drove in four runs and Dan Haren pitched eight solid innings as the Los Angeles Angels defeated Toronto 7-2 last night. Wells hit a two-run single against reliever Jesse Litsch in the sixth and hit a two-run homer, his 24th of the season, in the eighth against reliever Casey Janssen. Angels centre-fielder Peter Bourjos hit his 12th homer and tripled in a three-hit game as the Angels won their second in a row from the Blue Jays. Maicer Izturis had three hits and two RBIs for the Angels who outhit the Blue Jays 14-6. Haren (16-9) held the Blue Jays to four hits — including Eric Thames’ 11th homer of the season to lead off the sixth — and one run. He ended the eighth inning when a line drive by Thames hit his left arm and deflected to second baseman Izturis who got

The Angels who lost the first game of the fourgame series will try to win the series today in the Blue Jays’ final home game of the season. Dustin McGowan (0-1) had a solid start as he continues his comeback from two shoulder surgeries. He allowed five hits and two runs and struck

out eight in five innings in his third start and fourth outing since returning to the majors for the first time since 2008. Bourjos did most of the damage against McGowan, scoring in the third after a leadoff triple and hitting a home run in the fifth. The Angels (85-70) took the lead with a run in the third with a one-out single by Izturis through the drawn-in infield scoring Bourjos who led off with his 10th triple of the season.

Lawrie done

Brett Lawrie’s season is over after he fractured his right middle finger and was placed on the 15-day disabled list yesterday.

The 21-year-old third baseman took a ground ball off the finger while fielding during batting practice and he left the field. He later had X-rays, which revealed the fracture. Lawrie batted .293 with nine home runs and 25 runs batted in 43 games since making his majorleague debut on Aug. 5.

MALE OR FEMALE 18 YEARS OF AGE OR OLDER? Free of daily medications?

The transition was inevitable since the Jaguars selected Gabbert with the 10th pick in April’s draft. Del Rio had hoped to take it slow with the former Missouri standout, even planning to give him a year to watch and learn behind Garrard. But Garrard struggled in the pre-season and was outplayed by McCown, a career backup. Del Rio named McCown the starter five days before the season opener. McCown did enough to win the opener against Tennessee, but his ninth start in eight seasons was a debacle. He was picked off four times, could have thrown a couple more and was sacked for a safety — all in just three quarters.
