Edmonton park still occupied Edmonton joined more than 1,700 cities worldwide in Occupy movement Saturday Washrooms, food, clothing, blankets donated to downtown camp No problems or police involvement as of yesterday HEATHER MCINTYRE/METRO



They have occupied a downtown park and will continue to do so until at least tomorrow morning. About 60 people camped overnight at Jasper Avenue and 102 Street following an Occupy Edmonton rally with more than 1,000 Saturday at Churchill Square. “I want to stay here for as long as we need to,” Colton Suvanto said yesterday. “This is the perfect location. There are so many businesses out here.” Land owner Melcor will allow it until 10 a.m. Tuesday, said camp organizer Michael Thomas. What happens at that time remains to be seen, he said. The movement, which began on Wall Street last month, is supposed to be fighting against corporate greed and a better system for the “99 per cent of us.” More on Occupy Canada protests {page 5}

Rash of slayings keeps police on the move It was a busy week for homicide investigators in and around Edmonton. At about midnight on Thursday, Edmonton police responded to reports of a 22-year-old man dead near a parked vehicle at 131 Avenue and 69 Street. It is the city’s 43rd homicide of the year. An autopsy for the man is slated for today at 1:30 p.m. Police also released the identities of two men found dead on Tuesday morning near Rosehill Cemetery, in an SUV riddled with bullet holes. Police say Trevor Greenway, 26, and Jason Trundle, 36, died of gunshot wounds in what was not a random act. No details about possible suspects were released. Meanwhile, RCMP in Spruce Grove/Stony Plain are treating the death of teacher Jolene Marie Cote, 36, a mother of two who was found dead early Thursday at her home across from the Edmonton Springs Golf Course, as a homicide. On Saturday, members of Parkland Search and Rescue Society combed the property and the area surrounding Cote’s residence. RCMP are not releasing the cause of death and said they are “exploring different avenues of investigation.”

Implementing a turnstile system at LRT stations would cost $15 million, plus about $5 million a year in operating costs, all to save an estimated $2 million lost annually to fare cheaters, a city report says.

Of 76.3 million rides, 4.5 per cent taken for free in 2010: ETS Turnstiles make more sense once system gets larger, councillor says HEATHER MCINTYRE


There is simply no positive way to spin it: Turnstiles are not the right way to combat fare-box cheaters because the system is too expensive, a city report says. It would cost more than $5 million in staffing, operating and maintenance costs to save an estimated $2 million a year lost to cheaters, says the report, which goes be-

fore city council’s transportation committee tomorrow. And that’s on top of the $15 million it would cost to install the turnstiles, along with implementing smart-card or other fare technology, since ETS fare is paper-checked visually. “I’m disappointed that the costs are high,” Coun. Don Iveson said. “But for the same amount of money … you could hire eight peace officers on the system.” The open concept of

Edmonton’s 15 LRT stations was also noted as a challenge. Iveson said a smartcard system — plastic cards pre-loaded with fare money — would help. “Rather than making it harder to cheat, smartcard technology makes it easier to be honest about paying your fare,” he said. A capital-region committee is already looking into a regional fare. Developing smart-card technology is part of their long-range plan.

By the numbers Councillors asked for information on turnstiles in March, after learning most of the 6,500 tickets issued last year were for fare evasion. The report says turnstiles would reduce last year’s fare evasion of 4.5 per cent to 1.6 per cent. Edmonton Transit is patrolled by 61 peace officers who issue fines of $250 to those who haven’t paid their fare.

Hooking up homeless with small comforts Groups come together for largest event of its kind in Canada Offer homeless and at-risk care and support SHELLEY WILLIAMSON


Homeless Edmontonians and those at risk of being on the streets got to leave some worries behind for a few hours yesterday. By 1:30 p.m. about 1,100 had passed through the Shaw Conference Centre doors, where they were treated to dental care, hot meals, employment and health support, legal advice, rental information, free books, toiletries and more at Homeless Connect. Popular pampering beHEATHER MCINTYRE/METRO

ing snapped up were haircuts and photography services, perks many not at-risk can take for granted. “People make a lot of assumptions about what homeless people need,” said Susan McGee, executive director of Homeward Trust Edmonton. “The fact that you can get a portrait is not something they often get a chance to do.” Internet and free international phone calls were also a popular hook-up. Lines began to form beginning at 5:30 a.m. for the event’s 10 a.m. start, said McGee.

Many came for a specific service, such as laundry, access to dental care or a hot meal and a flu shot in preparation for a long winter on the streets. For Crystal Mountain, the event was a chance to connect with familiar faces. “If you’re on the streets in Edmonton, you come here and you find all the people you see,” said Mountain, who attended with her parents-in-law. “I came for the books, mainly, but also to see what resources were available. It’s excellent, and the food is awesome.”

A connection More than 450 volunteers helped connect about 1,400 attendees with more than 65 service providers at yesterday’s Homeless Connect event. Since Homeless Connect began, more than 2,400 volunteers have delivered services and resources to more than 9,200 homeless and at-risk Edmontonians. Participating organizations included Pearle Vision, Marvel College, Flo’s Beauty Salon, Coinamatic, Alberta Health Services, Mac’s, Kindness in Action, EPS, Hope Mission, BMP Photography and Edmonton Public Libraries.

City floats deep price for lake Making the lake at Hawrelak Park more “swimmable” could net the city a price tag of $60 million, according to a report before a council committee today.

The $25M estimated cost of making the lake at Hawrelak Park swimmable, without a filtration system, according to the report. Stephen Mandel asked for the report detailing the

costs of making it a permanent beach. The report estimates capital construction costs alone to be $3 million. It also recommends parking and amenities, change facilities and a filtration system for the waterway, bringing the bill to $60 million. METRO





Many taking part in Occupy Canada movement brave crisp fall weather to camp out at parks A day after kicking off their movement with loud voices and larger numbers, Canadians who gathered to decry corporate greed and social inequality spent yesterday nailing down their action plan for the coming week through long meetings with smaller groups. By late yesterday afternoon the numbers of Occupy Canada participants had thinned, but many expected their ranks to swell today as the financial sectors they were protesting reopened. “Today’s going to be a major day for planning a large impact for Monday as a demonstration for (when) the stock exchange opens,” said Niko Salassidis, 20, who set up the Occupy Toronto Facebook group.

No trouble yet The protests across Canada have been orderly so far, marked by cordial relations between police and demonstrators — a sharp contrast to the riots that erupted during last year’s G20 demonstrations in Toronto and following Vancouver’s Stanley Cup loss in June.

“We plan to make a very large statement.” But Bryan Hyshka, 21, a volunteer at Edmonton’s downtown camp site, added many of the protesters had to be at work today, so it was unclear how many would be available to continue the protest during the week. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Rome cleans up after rioters clash with cops GREGORIO BORGIA/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Rome’s mayor said yesterday that it could cost at least $1.4 million US to recover from the havoc wreaked by rioters who smashed windows, tore up sidewalks and torched vehicles after breaking off from a peaceful protest. The estimate came as cleanup work continued in damaged neighbourhoods, where many charred vehicles remained parked along the streets. The hundreds of rioters infiltrated a march Saturday by tens of thousands of demonstrators unhappy about the global financial crisis — part of a worldwide version of the Occupy Wall Street protests in New York. The protesters, some wearing gas masks and many in hoods, ripped up cobblestones and slabs of sidewalk to hurl at police and buildings, and smashed windows with hammers. Police responded with water hoses and tear gas. Protesters also stormed into a church, tore a crucifix off the wall and smashed a statue of the Virgin Mary.

Rome Mayor Gianni Alemanno inspected the damaged neighbourhood near St. John in Lateran Basilica yesterday. He called the rioters “animals.” Interior Minister Roberto Maroni, whose ministry includes the state police corps, said he would brief the Senate tomorrow about the rioting and the measures to be taken to avoid a replay. Maroni told a news conference that he has urged investigators to “carefully study the images” that

might have been captured by bank and other surveillance cameras so the rioters could be brought to justice “and pay for what they did in an exemplary way.” A city sanitation crew yesterday whitewashed a wall near the Colosseum to remove graffiti. Charred hulks of dozens of parked, unoccupied cars set ablaze by the rioters still lined several streets, but most of the shattered glass and chunks of hurled stone had been swept away Saturday night.

Students push for gender-free bathroom

Some transgender people bullied no matter which bathroom they use Many using handicapped washroom MARK STAHL/THE CANADIAN PRESS

Students at some universities on the Prairies are pushing for gender-neutral washrooms for transgender people who don’t feel comfortable having to choose between bathrooms for men or women. Those behind the idea suggest that the prospect of having to pick a genderspecific bathroom can lead to health issues since many ignore the call of nature until they can find a suitable bathroom. “Not everyone conforms to gender binaries of either male or female,” said Ro Mills, a transgender student at the University of Winnipeg. “I’ve seen a lot of other people’s identities change

while here at university, and during that transition, even before, it can make going to the washroom really, really difficult or embarrassing. Using a public restroom shouldn’t really be a privilege. It should just be a

given right.” Gender-neutral washrooms are still a relative rarity. The University of Western Ontario in London converted some bathrooms for the disabled to gender-neutral ones in 2008. The University of Victoria and McGill University in Montreal both have at least one genderneutral washroom. Some argue that the bathrooms further stigmatize a group already striving for acceptance, but Mills said having a genderneutral washroom that everyone could use would simply recognize the diversity of today’s campus.

Gaining ground in the Apple-dominated tablet computer market has been akin to pushing a rock up a mountain for Research in Motion. And there’s a hill they’re at risk of dying on: Parliament Hill. Political Ottawa remains addicted to RIM’s signature BlackBerry smartphone, but when it comes to which tablet computers to adopt, Apple’s iPad is the favoured son. Conservative MP Peter Braid is one of the few MPs who uses RIM’s Playbook instead. It’s an obvious choice, as Braid represents Waterloo, Ont., where RIM is based. When BlackBerry service went down around the world last week, it wasn’t just the company who felt the slap. Many Canadians take personal pride in the fact the device that even the U.S. president couldn’t live without comes from Canada. Even in the wake of the service meltdown, Braid said, people still remain confident in the company. And when it comes to the tablet, he’s hoping to try to convert over more fellow parliamentarians. “I talk to some people about it from time to time,” he said. “People understand why I feel as strongly as I do about promoting RIM.” In choosing the iPad

I promised myself I wouldn’t write another word about the downtown-arena debacle. But promises are TERENCE HARDING made to be broken. METRO EDMONTON I started out thinking that the downtown arena was a good idea. But when the financing issues arose, I began to have second thoughts. Then the issues with Northlands came to the fore. Expecting that organization to give up on Rexall Place and roll over and die seemed a bit much. Then there was the CRL issue, the cost of providing services for the development and who knows what else. What should have been a straightforward proposition has spun wildly out of control. The question is why. The arena issue has been nothing if not divisive. On the one hand, there are supporters who seem willing to sell their grandmothers if it puts an arena in the “On the one downtown.

Even with all the media already a coverage around the arena, billionaire.” he still remains Edmonton’s Howard Hughes. He doesn’t speak to Edmontonians about what he wants and needs and why — and that comes across as arrogance on his part. I have no idea whether he is, in fact, arrogant, but as any public-relations practitioner will tell you, perception is reality. I think many people do not trust Mr. Katz. That’s not a surprise. It’s hard to trust someone you know nothing about. Because of that lack of knowledge, Mr. Katz has become a symbol rather than a person. I believe many Edmontonians see Mr. Katz as the epitome of greed, a poster boy for the privileged, someone who thinks he is rich and powerful enough to make a municipality do his bidding. I am not sure any of those things is either fair or accurate, but in the absence of any evidence to the contrary, I am not surprised when I hear people express such opinions.

Worth Mentioning California’s largest industry group for doctors is calling for the legalization of marijuana even as it maintains that the drug has few proven health benefits. Trustees of the California Medical Association adopted the new stance at its annual meeting in Anaheim, according to a Los Angeles Times report. Dr. Donald Lyman, the physician who wrote the group’s new policy, said doctors are increasingly frustrated by the state’s medical marijuana law, which allows use with a doctor’s recommendation. Physicians are put in the uncomfortable position of having to decide whether to recommend a drug that’s illegal under federal law, Lyman said. “It is an open question whether cannabis is useful or not,” he told the newspaper. “That question can only be answered once it is legalized and more research is done.” The CMA acknowledges health risks associated with marijuana use and proposes regulation similar to alcohol and tobacco.

Don’t throw yourself in my backyard Hundreds of Toronto-area residents have signed a petition listing grievances with the Parachute School of Toronto including roaring noise, noxious fumes and rogue skydivers landing on their properties. “If they wreck anything,” says resident Paul Nicholls, “say they land in your Azaleas and destroy them, that’s criminal trespass.” Recently, Nicholls went to Georgina

town hall to present the petition, signed by 200 other aggravated Georginians, and lobby for change. A town-council report on the matter is expected early next week. The school has been operating since 1974, though it used to run out of Arthur, Ont. In 2002, it relocated in Georgina — north of Toronto — to be closer to its Toronto customers. It runs from May to October, from 9 a.m. to sunset, five days a week, during which some thousand flights take place. Of the 400 jumps conducted weekly, Adam Mabee, president of the parachute school, says just a couple of skydivers miss their target, the airport. The worst damage was to an awning and he paid the repairs. TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Gaga does Marilyn Lady Gaga channels Marilyn Monroe at concert honouring Bill Clinton’s foundation GETTY IMAGES

Lady Gaga enjoyed her “first real Marilyn moment” with former President Bill Clinton. The envelope-pushing pop superstar was one of several musicians who performed Saturday night at the Hollywood Bowl during a concert celebrating the 10th anniversary of Clinton’s foundation, which has sought to improve global health, strengthen economies worldwide, promote healthier childhoods and protect the environment for the past decade. “I always wanted to have one, and I was hoping that it didn’t involve pills and a strand of pearls,” Gaga joked. Emerging from atop an all-white treehouse, Lady Gaga sported a wavy blonde ’do and red lips like Marilyn Monroe, who famously crooned Happy Birthday, Mr. President to President John F. Kennedy in 1962. Lady Gaga similarly serenaded Clinton and changed several of her lyrics to reference him, including swapping the title of Bad Romance for Bill Romance. “I thought, ‘My God. I get Lady Gaga, and I will have a heart attack celebrating my 65th birthday,’” Clinton later said. Clinton, who turned 65 on Aug. 19 but celebrated his birthday at a posh Hollywood party Friday night, sat between wife Hillary and daughter Chelsea in the front row throughout

Saturday’s event at the outdoor venue set against the Hollywood Hills. Other famous attendees included Maria Bello, Ashton Kutcher, Jason Segel, Ellen DeGeneres, Colin Farrell and Chevy Chase. “I am the only person in history who got to be President and then had a postpresidential birthday party



attended by both Lady Gaga and the Secretary of State,” Clinton joked on stage. “I want to thank Hillary because we met 40 years ago this year. When I met her, she was already doing the kind of work you see here long before it was cool.” Other performers included Motown legend Stevie Wonder, country star

Kenny Chesney, Toronto rapper K’Naan, Colombian crooner Juanes and R&B singer Usher. Usher kicked off his performance with a take on Joe Cocker’s rendition of the Beatles classic With a Little Help From My Friends before launching into his hits Yeah and OMG. The R&B singer accidently

split his pant legs while dancing to reveal his bare left leg. The wardrobe malfunction didn’t stop Usher, who continued with his routine, telling the crowd: “I work hard.” Bono and The Edge of U2 closed the concert with a mostly acoustic set that included such tunes as Desire, One and Sunday Bloody Sunday, which Bono sang directly to Clinton. The duo — who were accompanied by a string quartet and Edge’s laptop — closed with Miss Sarajevo. Bono tackled the operatic part of the tune originally sung by the late Luciano Pavarotti. Clinton himself is no stranger to performing. The saxophone-playing politician memorably belted out Heartbreak Hotel when he visited Arsenio Hall’s show during his 1992 presidential campaign. Clinton didn’t pick up the instrument Saturday night, despite a plea from Lady Gaga, who informed him: “I wish you were playing sax with me tonight, baby.” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Harry Potter, Pee Wee Herman and Darth Vader among honourees at Spike TV’s Scream Awards

Heroes and villains from the worlds of horror, fantasy and sci-fi shared the stage at Spike TV’s annual Scream Awards. More television event than traditional awards ceremony, the Scream Awards were presented in an amphitheatre built on the Universal Studios backlot just for the occasion. The Saturday night show was as much about how the awards were presented as who got them, but for starters, the top honourees were Harry Potter, Darth Vader, Nicolas Cage, Pee Wee Herman and Robert Downey, Jr. Resembling a psychedelic circus, one side of the stage was a life-sized dollhouse populated by costumed characters; the other a staircase topped by a gi-

winners and also filled the makeshift theatre for the two and a half hour presentation, which is set to air tomorrow as a two-hour special on Spike TV and VH1. Potter took the night’s top prize. The eight-part film franchise was named the Ultimate Scream, which awards presenter Chloe Grace Moretz described as “the most awesome, most rocking thing that the universe has ever seen.” Audience members were given glow sticks before the winner was announced, and when Potter star Daniel Radcliffe accepted the prize by video from New York, fans there were waving the same lights. Co-star Ralph Fiennes, who played Lord Voldemort, also appeared by video to accept an award for favourite villain. Vader, though, won the Ultimate Villain award. Star Wars creator George Lucas presented the Sith Lord with his prize. Vader, who accepted the award personally, said he’s found it difficult to concentrate on his work recently because he’s constantly “living in fear of how George Lucas is going to digitally enhance you for the next DVD.” Meanwhile, Lucas announced that the first Star Wars film converted to 3-D will open in February.

Sucking – sucks? A thumb or pacifier may bring peace to your household but what are the implications? EMMA E. FORREST LIFE@METRONEWS.CA METRO WORLD NEWS

You’ve swaddled and shushed, but your baby’s still howling. So you reach for a pacifier, or encourage thumb sucking. Is this OK? Thumb versus pacifier use is an issue that divides parents. Thumb sucking is a natural behaviour. Children have been observed thumb sucking in the womb. Pacifier proponents

believe keeping your baby calm when he or she is crying for no reason is better for psychological wellbeing. There are genuine positives: Pacifier use is believed to reduce the prevalence of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. You can also control when your baby uses it (which you can’t do with a thumb) and when it’s time to end nonnutritive sucking (NNS) — as it’s termed — a pacifier can be thrown out. The downside is that if

your baby becomes dependent on it, you’ll be up throughout the night to pop it back in. Later, it becomes a barrier to speech. So while this sanity-saver seems like a good option, NNS can have implications for growth. “The greater the amount of time during the day that the child engages in non-nutritive sucking, the greater the forces that the growing bones and associated soft tissues will be exposed to,” explains Dr. Sarah Hulland, a paediatric

dentist. “In turn (this) can cause a change in the relationship of the oro-motor complex, so how the mouth is shaped, how the dentition inter-relates, how the lips can close, how the tongue behaves in the mouth (can be affected).” Hulland warns that soother sucking should be limited to settling your baby. “Sucking on soothers can lead to significant restructuring of the oro-facial complex, which usually manifests itself as an open

bite where the front teeth don’t meet. This can lead to difficulties closing the lips and a tongue thrust.” In response, pacifier producers are creating more ergonomic soothers. But getting kids to stop can be tricky. “The easiest way to stop pacifier sucking is to keep soother-access to essential-use only,” explains Hulland. “And for thumb suckers, remove thumb from a child’s mouth or replace it with an alternative comforter.”

Let the money rain down ISTOCK PHOTOS

Turn your humble rain barrel into a cash saving device Conserving your water has never been easier BEN KNIGHT


Drip by drip, drop by drop, water is getting more expensive. It’s tempting to wonder, sometimes, why we are paying so much for something that regularly falls out of the sky for free. Not that purification, pumps and infrastructure aren’t hugely important. But aren’t there ways to use all that water that simply hits your house anyway? Yes, and so we turn to the humble rain barrel. “Catching rain water for your garden is fun,” says Bob Burgess, princi-

pal of Gulf Islands Rainwater Connection Ltd. on Thetis Island, B.C. “And it gives you the best possible water for your garden.” A simple, low-tech device can fill up 10 to 15 times in a typical Canadian year. The water’s not drinkable, but it’s cheaper — and cleaner — for lawns, gardens and plants than the more expensive treated water that gushes from your hose or sprinkler. And if you feel like investing in a more complex system, rain water can also be used indoors. “The building code — now — allows it to be

Turn your traditional rain barrel into cash.

used for toilets without purification,” Burgess says. “That’s a nice way to save money — and water — 12 months a year.”

That requires a tank, underground in most of Canada, where it can be protected from freezing. “The underground tanks are more expensive.

You’re probably spending $2,000 on the tank, and another $1,000 on the pump. By and large, you’re looking at more like $4,000 to $5,000. And

that depends on how easy it is. If it’s a brand new house, it would be really easy.” Potable water systems are available, converting rain into drinking water. But they run in the $25,000 to $35,000 cost range — far more than most Canadians would ever be willing to spend. But there’s an easier, cheaper side to this. Just the simple act of putting a rain barrel under your downspout heightens awareness of water conservation, making it easier to find other effective, every-day ways of cutting consumption. “That’s exactly the idea of the rain barrel, is that it gets people interested,” Burgess says. “Here’s a line: It’s raining, it’s pouring, the wise man is storing.” ISTOCK PHOTOS

Believe it or not, NASA created a list of the best air-filtering plants. Decorate your home or office with a combination of spider plants,

peace lilies, snake plants (a.k.a. mother-in-law’s tongue), elephant ears, weeping figs, rubber plants or bamboo palms (a.k.a. reed palm). All of these are some of the most popular house plants, so they’ll be easy to find, and they’re also easy to care for. Back in the 1980s, NASA did a study to look at which plants were best able to filter the air of the space station. And if it’s good enough

Cardinals headed to Series St. Louis bullpen bottles up Brewers, earning team a chance to play Rangers for title




An afterthought in early September, the St. Louis Cardinals are taking their wild ride all the way to the World Series. David Freese hit a three-run homer in the first and manager Tony La Russa turned again to his brilliant bullpen for seven sturdy innings as St. Louis captured its 18th pennant with a 12-6 victory over the bumbling Milwaukee Brewers last night. Albert Pujols and the wild-card Cardinals took out the heavily favoured Phillies in the first round, then dispatched the division-rival Brewers on their own turf in Game 6 of the NL championship series. Looking for its second title in six seasons, St. Louis opens the World Series at home Wednesday night with ace Chris Carpenter on the mound against the AL champion Texas Rangers. Trailing by 101⁄2 games in the wild-card race on Aug. 25, the Cardinals surged down the stretch and took advantage of a monumental collapse by Atlanta to win a playoff spot on the final night of the regular season. Now, bolstered by a

group of no-name relievers who keep answering La Russa’s call, the Cardinals are back in the World Series for the first time since beating Detroit in 2006. What a relief ! It was a disappointing end to a scintillating season for Prince Fielder, Ryan Braun and the NL Central champion Brewers, who finished with a franchise-record 96 wins, six games ahead of St. Louis. Baseball’s best home

team collapsed in the NLCS, though, losing twice at Miller Park in an error-filled flop. It was likely Fielder’s final game with the Brewers, too. He’s a free agent after the season. Rafael Furcal and Pujols hit solo homers off Chris Narveson and St. Louis built a 9-4 lead by the time the bullpen took over for Edwin Jackson in the third inning. The group of Fernando Salas, Marc Rzepczynski, Octavio Dotel, Lance Lynn

and Jason Motte allowed two runs the rest of the way. For the series, St. Louis relievers finished 3-0 with a 1.88 ERA over 282⁄3 innings. The biggest scare came when Pujols appeared shaken up after tagging out Braun in the fifth inning when he fell hard on his right forearm on a close play at first base. The three-time MVP was slow to get up, but stayed in the game. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Unfamiliar foes The last time the Rangers and Cardinals faced off was in a 2004 interleague series in Texas. Even in this era of interleague play, that’s the only time the Cardinals and Rangers have met when it meant something. According to STATS LLC, that matches the fewest games between a pair of opponents in the majors, tying the Mets-White Sox.

IndyCar, its drivers and owners, have decided to end the race. In honour of Dan Wheldon, the drivers have decided to do a five-lap salute to in his honour.”

The race was only minutes old when Wheldon, who started at the back of the 34-car field and was in position for a $5 million US payday if he could have won the race, was one of 15 cars involved in a wreck that started when two cars touched tires. Several cars burst into flames, and debris was all over the track, some of the impact so intense that workers needed to patch holes in the asphalt. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
