In the packed seats at the Holy Redeemer Church in Kanata

Thursday, people passed tissues to one another to wipe their tears as memories of Jamie Hubley’s high points in life were shared by those who knew him best.

More than 300 family members and friends attended the funeral for Hubley, the eldest son of Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley. The 15-year-old A.Y. Jackson Secondary School student took his own life Saturday after suffering from depression and being bullied by his peers for being openly gay.

During the service friends and family remembered a “natural born performer.” “When James sang, the whole room lit up with his big, bright smile,” said Luke Spiro, Hubley’s friend since Grade 2. Even those who didn’t know Jamie personally still came to pay their respects to the teen whose

death has shaken the whole community. “I think people now understand how much this has affected everyone,” said Michaela Dorans, a fellow student, after the ceremony. “Things will be better.” The Hubley family asked that donations be made to support the Youth Services Bureau.

Hit-and-run driver found guilty on 10 charges The packed courtroom was silent as a jury found Sommit Luangpakham guilty of all 10 charges for crashing a van into five cyclists on March Road, July 19, 2009. The victims spoke up for the first time since the trial began. “The end of the trial has lifted a great weight from my heart that my family and I have been bearing since my friends

and I were struck down by the criminal negligence of one man, a man who has not shown any remorse for his actions,” said one victim Mark White. Luangpakham was charged with five counts of dangerous driving causing bodily harm and fleeing the scene of an accident. He is also facing a civil suit from the cyclists. His lawyer argued

the 47-year-old fell asleep at the wheel briefly, only noticing after the crash that he’d hit something and didn’t stop as he thought it was a small post. Crown lawyer Matthew Humphreys argued that it would have been impossible for him to miss the “bodies bouncing off, into and over” his van.

Accused drunk driver able to drive $15,000 in bonds signed for by accused and his parents Must be under supervision JESSICA SMITH

@METRONEWS.CA

Maxime Morin-Leblanc left the Ottawa Courthouse on bail yesterday afternoon, four days after he was arrested and accused of hitting and killing a pedestrian in the ByWard Market while driving drunk. Morin-Leblanc is charged with criminal negligence causing death, impaired operation of a motor vehicle and failing to provide breath sample. He was arrested after Alexandra Dodger, 27, was hit by a car going the wrong way down St. Patrick Street at about 3 a.m. last Saturday, police said. She died in hospital. Morin-Leblanc and both of his parents each

posted a $5,000 bond. He must live at either of their houses and abide by a curfew. He is allowed to drive but only when accompanied by one of a short list of approved people. He must abstain from alcohol and drugs and not go to any places that primarily sell alcohol. The accused is scheduled to appear in court Nov. 2. Dodger was a recent McGill law graduate who was articling for Amnesty International. She is being remembered by her law school through online tribute messages from colleagues and professors. Dodger is described as a brilliant and compassionate woman who was dedicated to social justice and human rights.

DEATH OF A LIBYAN Local says Gadhafi’s overthrow marks beginning for new Libya

@METRONEWS.CA

Libyans in Ottawa reacted with excitement, hope, and emotion Thursday after learning that revolutionary forces had captured and killed Moammar Gadhafi. “Exhilarated is the word that comes to mind,” said Ikram Elmuradi, 35. “I’m super excited.” The 69-year-old dictator was killed Thursday when the National Transitional Council (NTC) forces stormed his hometown of Sirte. Elmuradi, who was born in Tripoli, shared the news with friends and family after the reports came in. She got ahold of her aunt in Tripoli who told her the capital city was in an “uproar of celebrations.”

Emotion struck Elmuradi again just thinking of the phone call. “It’s that draining feeling you get when all of a sudden you can’t believe this is the end — or the beginning, really, of a life,” she said. “It was beautiful.” She said joy in Libya was felt in Ottawa, too, and many people she phoned here were both happy and relieved. Libyans here planned a Facebook event to hold a celebratory rally on Parliament Hill Thursday evening. As optimistic as Elmuradi is, she said Libyans will now go through many growing pains as the NTC rebuilds the country. “We’re basically starting from scratch. And that’s why we need the support of the whole world, not just Canada,” she said. JOE LOFARO/METRO LIBYAN TV/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

DICTATOR HASSENE DRIDI/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Canadian military to leave Libya Canada’s military mission in Libya is expected to end by early November following Thursday’s death of Moammar Gad-

hafi. The dictator’s demise marked the end of four decades of erratic and brutal rule that saw world leaders both engage and cast out the leader of the oil-rich nation before he was finally driven from power by his own people. NATO leaders were to decide Friday on a firm

end date for its military support of the rebels. The NATO-led mission, backed by a United Nations resolution, intervened in Libya in March when Gadhafi refused to end a bloody crackdown on the revolution that was part of a wave of uprisings across the Arab world. Gadhafi’s death means

he’ll never able to terrorize his own people or the world again, Prime Minister Stephen Harper said. “The Libyan people can finally turn the page on 42 years of vicious oppression and continue their journey toward a better future,” Harper said. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Libyans living in Tunisia celebrate outside the Libyan Embassy in Tunis on Thursday.

Gadhafi killed in hometown Dragged from hiding in a drainage pipe, a wounded Moammar Gadhafi raised his hands and begged revolutionary fighters: “Don’t kill me, my sons.” Within an hour, he was dead, but not before jubilant Libyans had vented decades of hatred by pulling the eccentric dictator’s hair and

parading his bloodied body on the hood of a truck. The death Thursday of Gadhafi, two months after he was driven from power and into hiding, decisively buries the nearly 42-year regime that had turned the oil-rich country into an international pariah and his own personal fiefdom. It also thrusts Libya into a new age in which its transitional leaders must overcome deep divisions and rebuild nearly all its institutions from scratch. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Chamber of Commerce in talks to bring Finance Minister Jim Flaherty in as a speaker: Exec. director JESSICA SMITH

@METRONEWS.CA

Treasury Board President Tony Clement, told a gathering of Ottawa business people Thursday he will be presenting an open-government plan as part of the international Open Government Initiative led by the U.S. and Brazil, in spring 2012. It will make data and information more available and open up lines of dialogue with citizens, he said, but he did not reveal any details of Canada’s plan. Clement made the announcement at city hall,

where he was to speak about his government’s plan to trim its spending by up to $4 billion over 2012. But details on that will have to wait, he said. “This project comes to a head in budget 2012,” said Clement. “This will be when all the results of our efforts will be made public.” He added that he hopes the Deficit Reduction Action Plan will not just permanently eliminate $4 billion of government spending but also modernize the civil service. Clement has asked each government organization to propose two budget

plans — one that cuts five per cent and one that cuts 10 per cent — then he will make recommendations. Mayor Jim Watson said the city has been preparing for government layoffs by trying to help boost private industry, primarily in tourism and technology Executive director of the Ottawa Chamber of Commerce Erin Kelly said she was happy to hear that the cutting plans will be made public soon. She said the Ottawa business community is eager to know more about civil-service job losses to aid employees transitioning into the private sector.

Biologist’s dance video on doctoral work wins international award as creative passion surfaces A Canadian scientist has won an international award for her PhD thesis – the dance remix of it anyway. Queen’s University biologist Emma Ware is one of four winners of Dance Your PhD, a unique and lighthearted annual contest that asks researchers to convert their doctoral thesis into a dance video. “I wasn’t expecting that, but it is exciting,” Ware said upon hearing the results Thursday. Her thesis, entitled A Study of Social Interactivity Using Pigeon Courtship, yielded a moody, blackand-white video that shows how responses from

Fun break The idea behind the contest is to give young scientists a fun break from the pressure of fulfilling the requirements of their doctorate, said founder John Bohannon, a science journalist and sometime Harvard researcher. But he said it also gets the researchers thinking about what it takes to get their work across to the public.

female pigeons affect mating displays from the males. The judges, who included both professional dancers and scientists,

praised it for mirroring exactly with the dancers the experimental processes that Ware used on her pigeons. “I’ve always been very interested and passionate about dance as well as science,” said Ware, who helped start a dance club at her university. “For me, it was kind of like two worlds colliding and this was a great opportunity.” Not that science and art are necessarily opposed, she added. Despite her win, however, Ware won’t be continuing her research. “Right now, I’m trying to get into medical school.” THE CANADIAN PRESS

New Brunswick’s official languages commissioner says politicians and government agencies should use both official languages when they use Twitter and Facebook. Michel Carrier says when elected members engage the public on social media websites, they should do so in both French and English, just as they would when sending a letter or fax. Carrier issued the call in his annual report released Thursday. He says he doesn’t want his recommendation to discourage politicians or civil servants from using social media, though he doesn’t use Twitter himself. New Brunswick is Canada’s only officially bilingual province. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Greeks riot as cuts get approved Violence precedes lawmakers’ vote in favour of new austerity bill General strike undergoes second day Greek lawmakers passed a deeply resented new austerity bill Thursday, caving in to the demands of international creditors in order to avoid a national bankruptcy, as a second day of riots left one protester dead and more than 100 people wounded. The austerity measures won 154-144 in the 300member parliament despite dissent from a prominent Socialist lawmaker who voted against a key article of the bill. The vote was expected to pave the way for a vital €8-billion ($11-billion) payout from creditors within weeks so Greece can stay solvent. Clouds of tear gas

choked central Athens ahead of the vote as riot police intervened to separate rival demonstrators who fought for several hours with firebombs and stones outside parliament. A 53-year-old construction worker died of heart failure after attending a mass rally, while 74 protesters and 32 police officers were hospitalized with injuries, police and state hospital officials told The Associated Press. Several dozen more injured protesters received first aid from volunteer medics who set up a makeshift treatment site on Athens’ main Syntagma Square. Police said they detained

2 U.S. women guilty in Somali terror case Two U.S. citizens of Somali descent who claimed they were helping the poor in Somalia were convicted Thursday in Minneapolis of conspiring to funnel money to a terrorist group as part of what prosecutors called a “deadly pipeline” sending funds and fighters to al-Shabab. Amina Farah Ali, 35, and Hawo Mohamed Hassan, 64, were each charged in federal court with conspiracy to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization.

After a day of keeping the nation guessing, the first lady announced the baby’s name on her website Thursday night: Giulia. “I’m very touched by the numerous messages of congratulations that are coming in since the birth of our little girl Giulia,” BruniSarkozy wrote. “We are lucky to have been blessed by a new ar-

tors to track Canadians’ progress in areas such as community spirit, education, health, environment, leisure and democratic engagement. While GDP measures what companies and government produce, the well-being index measures how Canada and its people are faring. It shows that between 1994 and 2008, well-being improved by just 11 per cent. The economy over that period grew by 31 per cent. So while investment and corporate activity were ticking along at a decent pace, Canadian households saw only minor improvements in their lifestyle. The index’s subcomponents show that quality of life actually deteriorated over that time frame in areas such as the environment, leisure and culture, and time use. A typical household is now working harder and longer to keep on track financially, at the expense of having free time with family and friends, enjoying arts and culture, and volunteering.

A generation of solid economic growth has meant little in the everyday lives of most Canadians, according to a new index of wellbeing. The finding is a yellow light for decision-makers that social unrest is just around the corner unless deep changes are made, warns Roy Romanow, the advisory board chairman of the University of Waterloo group that created the index. The index suggests the middle class, in particular, is eroding. “There are some very, very troubling signs,” Romanow said in an interview. “I think if we continue on this trajectory we’re going to have bigger and bigger disparities. You can never build a solid political, social and economic community with wide disparities.” The Canadian Index of Wellbeing is meant to be GDP’s alter ego, measuring the quality of life in society in ways gross domestic product does not. The index has been years in the making, pulling together 64 indica-

Like the demonstrations themselves, Occupy Wall Street’s media operation has no clear leader or simple message. Some of its volunteers work to help reporters whose cameras and microphones dot Zuccotti Park, even as many protesters express an aversion toward the press. The media volunteers have counted at least 500 outlets that have sent reporters to the park, including a New Zealand newspaper, a college newspaper from Texas and a documentary filmmaker from Australia.

Last weekend the group held media training sessions for protesters to give tips in dealing with combative reporters Julianne Pepitone, a reporter for CNNMoney.com who has been covering the protest since it began, said that in the early days, media volunteers would often approach her in the park and ask if she needed any help. It struck her as a welloiled machine. Still, it can get frustrating covering a leaderless movement. “When you speak to these people, they are very careful to say, ‘I don’t speak for the whole revolution. No one does,’” she said.

The rally follows a string of protests that have taken place across the country, including in front of Labour Minister Lisa Raitt’s constituency office north of Toronto. The flight attendants voted to strike but were barred from walking off the job after Raitt referred the case to the quasi-judicial board. THE CANADIAN PRESS


business Thailand floods curtail storage-drive production Computer manufacturers face shortage of critical component The personal computer industry, already reeling from depressed demand, has been dealt another setback: Massive flooding in Thailand has curtailed production of a critical component — computer storage drives. Factories producing a third of the country’s hard drives have temporarily closed as flooding has gradually spread since August. Prices have spiked, and Apple warned that its Mac products will likely be affected. Computer manufacturers, the companies that supply hard drives and the makers of components for those drives are all bracing for troubles. What’s not yet clear is what extent PC production lines will be affected and whether PC makers will absorb costs or pass them along to consumers. Thailand makes about a quarter of the world’s hard drives and is the sec-

ond-largest producer behind China, according to IHS iSuppli. Market research firm IDC estimates that the flooding has already affected a third of the country’s output, equating to more than 120 million hard drives a year. Avian Securities says the slowdown is already leading to price spikes that have added several dollars to the cost of some drives. The flooding has killed 317 people, mostly from drowning. Nearly 9 million people have been displaced or otherwise affected. Estimates of the economic cost were $3 billion and rising. The biggest hard drive makers — Seagate Technology PLC and Western Digital Corp. — have warned of delays. Companies such as Apple and Dell have said they are monitoring the situation.

Authorized Steve Jobs bio due Monday Steve Jobs had a disdain for people who put profits first. In an upcoming authorized biography of the late Apple CEO, he calls the crop of executives brought in to run Apple after his ouster in 1985 “corrupt people” with “corrupt values” who cared only about making

money. Jobs was often bullied in school and stopped going to church at age 13, according to “Steve Jobs,” by Walter Isaacson, which will be published Monday by Simon & Schuster. Advanced sales of the biography have topped bestseller lists since Jobs died Oct. 5 after a long battle with cancer at age 56. The book was originally scheduled to come out in March 2012. The release date was moved up to Oct. 24 following Jobs’ death. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Quebecor president PierreKarl Peladeau insists his company is not engaged in a vendetta against its CBC competitor, but is instead upholding a public duty to probe the affairs of a government-funded Crown corporation. The media mogul appeared Thursday at a parliamentary committee hearing into why the CBC is fighting access-to-

hundreds of information requests, mainly from Quebecor's many media outlets, and suspects an orchestrat-

ed campaign to damage it. But Peladeau denies that the quest for information is anything more than independent journalists doing their work. Still, he went on to threaten legal action against the CBC for putting out a statement earlier this week about Peladeau's own lack of accountability in receiving public funding. THE CANADIAN PRESS

LIONS AND TIGERS AND ARAB RULERS THE METRO LIST PAUL SULLIVAN METRO

Is it just me, or does the world get weirder by the week? Consider the following evidence, as we assemble this week’s zeitgeist, item by item:

WEEKEND, OCTOBER 21-23, 2011

Can money buy happiness?

77%

NO, MO MONEY MO PROBLEMS

23%

YES, I’M HAPPIEST WHEN I CAN BUY WHAT I WANT

1

Moammar Gadhafi: It’s been a bad year for jihadists and despots: Mubarak, bin Laden and now the terrorist clown (or is that clown terrorist?) gets his.

2

Bicoastal bliss: The feds launch a lot of boats with $35 billion. Stephen Harper could get elected king this morning, at least in Vancouver and Halifax, where the ship-building industries are enjoying an instant revival. We’s the bys what build the boats. Buy Canadian, eh?

3

Shark-fin ban: Toronto city council votes Monday on a motion to ban the sale of shark fins and shark-fin soup. Did you know that 73 million sharks a year are killed for their fins and that some species have been reduced by 90 per cent? Save the sharks! Switch to tomato bisque!

4

Chinese toddler: A poor little two-year-old girl was run over — twice — by some jerks, and more than a dozen people walked around her as she lay screaming for nearly 10 minutes. It’s causing a lot of hand-wringing in China. Let’s just hope that when they stop wringing, they actually start helping people who need a hand.

5

Jungle book: The other unhappy story everyone’s talking about is the guy who let all his lions and tigers loose in Ohio and then killed himself. It turned into a bad day for the whole menagerie as state deputies turned into big-game hunters, and now most of the lions, tigers and, oh my, bears are dead. At last report, there was one lone monkey out there. My advice: don’t monkey around. Get out of Ohio.

6 7

Torture enablers are people too: George W. Bush comes to Metro Vancouver Friday, and the Occupy people want him arrested for war crimes. Hail (and rocks and rotten tomatoes) to the Chief. True blue: Steven Slater, the guy who escaped from his job as a Jet Blue flight attendant — literally — down the emergency chute, avoids hard time. But has to pay the airline back for damaging their chute: $831.25 bucks a month. And he thought life was tedious before. But then there’s the book tour to look forward to.

BieberWatch: Justin Bieber’s tour stops in Peru, the home of his doppelganger, Alejandro Avilez Kamp, the Peruvian Justin Bieber. Geez, there are two of them.

Worth Mentioning Doctors sometimes call the anesthesia drug by its nickname — milk of amnesia. Patients are calling it the “Michael Jackson drug.” Ever since propofol was blamed in the singer’s death, patients who seldom asked or cared about what kind of sedation they were getting are suddenly peppering their doctors with questions about the potent drug. “You won’t believe how many people ... ask me: ‘Are you going to give me the Michael Jackson drug?’” said Dr. H.A. Tillmann Hein, president of the Texas Society of Anesthesiologists. While some initially balk at going under, fearing they will end up like Jackson, they come around after Hein explains that propofol, widely used for surgeries and other procedures for more than 20 years, is safe when used by a trained professional. Propofol gained notoriety in 2009 after an autopsy found Jackson died of an overdose. Prosecutors have accused his personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, of giving the 50-year-old pop icon a lethal dose at the singer’s rented Los Angeles mansion. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Just like that, a planet is born Astronomers have captured the first direct image of a planet being born. Adam Kraus, of the University of Hawaii’s Institute for Astronomy, said the planet is being formed out of dust and gas circling a two-millionyear-old star about 450 light years from Earth. The planet itself, based on scientific models of how planets form, is estimated to have started taking shape about 50,000 to 100,000 years ago. Called LkCa 15 b, it’s the youngest

scene Scene in brief

Paranormal Activity’s recurring characters Katie and Kristi Rey are creepy little kids in this instalment of the franchise.

Horror hat trick Paranormal Activity franchise should be getting old, but the third instalment still offers plenty of scares Film a shining example of ‘found footage’ genre

Richard: Mark, I have to say, I’m a bit of a sucker for things that go bump in the night and even though the Paranormal Activity series should be a little long in the tooth by now, it still made me jump. Are you as big a fraidy cat as I am? Mark: I usually pop a Xanax before I see a horror film so I can better appreciate the movie for its technical merits. But I didn’t for this one. And yes, the movie did frighten me, but only in the last 15 minutes, which were terrific. I found it a bit too long getting going and had a bit too much dark humour to create that air of dread

right off the top. The first two installments of the franchise really creeped me out; this one is better made, but didn’t give me the punch until the end. RC: This one is 99 per cent anticipation, one per cent payoff, but the one per cent is pretty good. I think the low-fi feel of the movies — the picture really does look like home video most of the time — combined with really natural performances from unknown actors make the Paranormal Activity movies feel like real “found footage” movies. Most movies of the genre are a little too slick. These

aren’t. There’s no music, no stars and it feels like you’re watching something that could be real ... almost. MB: Yes, and that’s not easy. It takes real filmmaking talent to look this artless. One thing I love about the series, and this movie in particular, is how much of the plot takes place at the edges of the screen. You really have to pay attention to see what’s really happening in the frame. And the static takes almost feel like some European art film, although the technical innovation of the oscillator-cam in this film is inspired. I was also pleased

that the movie had a backstory and plot, although, cleverly, you don’t realize it until the movie is done. RC: This one is a prequel, featuring the recurring characters Katie and Kristi Rey as creepy little kids. Not sure what’s next though ... maybe Paranormal Activity in Outer Space? MB: Well, before the screening, we were warned that to prevent privacy, the theatre would be continuously scanned using night vision technology. Paranormal Activity 4, anyone?

Johnny Depp describes his friendship with Hunter S. Thompson as a ‘love affair.’

NED EHRBAR

SCENE@METRONEWS.CA METRO WORLD NEWS IN HOLLYWOOD

Johnny Depp has been working to bring Hunter S. Thompson’s the Rum Diary to the screen since shortly after the two of them discovered the manuscript for the book in Thompson’s attic. With the film finally hitting theatres, Depp shares with Metro, in his own words, some of his memories of his close friendship with the late author. Meeting Hunter for the first time

IN THEATRES OCTOBER 28TH

It was around Christmas time of 1994. I was in Aspen, and this friend of mine said, ‘You should come to the Woody Creek Tavern. I’ll have Hunter come down if you want to meet him.’ Somewhere around midnight the front door opened and all I could see initially were sparks — just sparks shooting everywhere, and then people jumping for cover. You could hear this sort of muffled, ‘Out of my way, you bastards!’ The sea parted, and the sparks stopped and he arrived right in front of me, and then this southern gentleman came over and said, ‘My name’s Hunter, how do you do?’ And that was it. From that second on, if we were apart we

were on the phone constantly. It was a love affair, a major love affair that hung around until he made his exit.”

with Hunter — just me and him for five straight days. And so all the stuff you read about in Fear and Loathing with the grapefruits and saving the shrimp cocktails, all that stuff ? All true.

Keeping up with the King of Gonzo Journalism

“We shared the same sense of adventure. One of the things I’ll cherish all my life is that whenever Hunter felt the need to wander out and explore, he’d call me. He’d say, ‘Colonel’ — he used to call me Colonel, Col. Depp — ‘Colonel, I need you in Havana in a week.’ I was in the middle of a film in England. I said, ‘I think I could probably work it out, all right.’ And then you find yourself on a plane to Havana. These memories are seared onto my brain.” On the road with Hunter

We were on a book tour, and he wanted me to go on the road with him as his road manager and as his head of security. He would refer to me as Ray, his head of security. So he’d say, ‘I’d like you to meet Ray, my head of security.’ And they were like, ‘That’s Johnny Depp.’ And he’d go, ‘No! His name is Ray.’ And he just stayed with that. We ended up in San Francisco because his back went out on him on the tour. So I was essentially locked in a hotel room with him, in a suite

Learning of Hunter’s suicide

“I was here, in Los Angeles. If you knew Hunter — if you really spent time with him and you knew how he negotiated life and dictated the way he was going to live his life — you knew he wasn’t going to be the guy who just sort of slipped off the chair and went away. You knew it was going to be self-inflicted. I wasn’t particularly shocked, because you knew it would happen one day. But then you start cursing the bastard, thinking, Come on, man. One last phone call? Maybe some hideous practical joke before you do it? But he did actually ultimately have the best practical joke of all, because his last wish was to be blown out of a giant cannon in his back yard. Now, there are no giant cannons of that size. He wanted 150 feet of cannon, and then I found out that the Statue of Liberty was 151 feet tall, and I thought he’d really hate me if it were any smaller than the Statue of Liberty. So we changed the plans and we built it up to 153 feet tall. We broke the records then. The great joke is that we

Becoming Hunter The Rum Diary marks Depp’s second on-screen appearance as an alter ego of Hunter S. Thompson, after first taking on Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas in 1998. But Depp wasn’t the first person to try to embody Thompson, and his predecessor had some advice, it turned out. “I think it was the first day of shooting on Fear and Loathing, and I had already sponged up so much of Hunter that I couldn’t help but be Hunter,” Depp says. “And I got this phone call, first day of shooting, from Bill Murray, who’d played him in Where the Buffalo Roam. And Bill says, ‘Johnny, I just want to warn you, you’ve got to be careful.’ I said, ‘About what?’ He said, ‘Well, you know the way you become as Hunter and the way you speak as Hunter, how you sort of learn how to think like him? It never goes away.’ And I was already in so deep, it was like, ‘OK! There’s nothing I can do about it now.’”

were all forced to focus on something else as opposed to focusing on the loss of a great, great friend. Now it was a question of how do we shoot the bastard into the stratosphere legally and get away with it?”

Director Roland Emmerich takes on the literary establishment with his new film that questions whether Shakespeare really wrote all those plays NED EHRBAR

SCENE@METRONEWS.CA METRO WORLD NEWS IN HOLLYWOOD

While he was busy making millions with disaster films like Independence Day, the Day After Tomorrow and 2012, German director Roland Emmerich secretly had a completely different kind of film in mind — a film about the true authorship of Shakespeare’s plays. And while he does manage to sneak an explosion

or two into Elizabethan London, Anonymous is indeed a completely different film than what he’s made before, and he always knew bringing it to the world would be “an uphill battle.” Do you have your own opinion about the identity of Shakespeare?

I side with the artists and writers. I side with Mark Ryland, Derek Jacobi, Walt Whitman, Henry James, Sigmund Freud, Charlie Chaplin, Orson Welles — ALEXANDRA WYMAN/GETTY IMAGES

all these people believed that the man from Stratford didn’t write it. The problem with this whole thing, anyway, is there’s the literary establishment — the educators, the professors, the school teachers and all these people who write books about the man from Stratford. They’ve devoted their whole lives, and now the Master of Disaster comes along and makes this movie — maybe I’m the antichrist, we don’t know yet. They’re thinking I am. But whatever it is, they have to bedevil me, they have to kind of think this is all nonsense, but it isn’t. And it’s an uphill battle, I knew that going in. What made you want to take on this subject?

Roland Emmerich

The orthodox scholars have a huge problem with the work of Shakespeare. How do they want to explain that? How can a commoner write only about the point of view of an aristocrat? Why is there so much poetry? It’s very hard to believe that it was written by a

Anonymous presents the controversial theory that it was the Earl of Oxford who penned Shakespeare’s plays.

guy who was a younger man who was just coming to London as a commoner. The whole thing just doesn’t make sense. We wanted to just show another version of it, just an alternate history. The last time we spoke, you were casting this film. How is it to show the finished product to the world?

It’s a little nerve-wracking, but it’s always nervewracking whenever you make a movie. You have to show it, you know? I actually do movies mainly because I want to see them, but films are so expensive, you have to show them to people. Lots of people! And that’s always nerve-wracking for me because I’m just afraid that they’ll throw tomatoes at me or something. It’s not your usual subject matter.

Yeah, it was very risky to

make, because boy if I would f--- that one up, then people would say, “Oh, my God. Do we need that?” But I think we did a pretty good job, so hopefully the people will not say that. But it was just a pleasure to work with these incredible actors. I had on this film the freedom to cast whoever I wanted, and because of that it was really a joy to do it. Also, it was the first movie I did in Germany in 20 years. I chose Germany because I felt most at home there and I know a lot of people there and I have a great group, which could be all Germans because I speak German. How did the mostly English cast feel about that?

They thought we were kind of like Hobbits who speak in their secret language, you know?

What about Shakespeare’s sexuality? There’s been plenty of speculation about Shakespeare’s sexuality, with many scholars claiming evidence supports the idea that his young patron, the Earl of Southampton, was actually his lover. It’s something Emmerich kept out of Anonymous. “There was a time where everybody thought Shakespeare was gay, which I think when you look at the plays he wasn’t,” the director explains. “There were too many tortured relationships with women. And you can explain this with [the Earl of Oxford],” who Emmerich theorizes wrote the plays, “but with the man from Stratford, you can’t really explain that.

On CBS’ The Mentalist, Simon Baker’s character has things all figured out. He’s able to read people, surroundings and situations so well that he can solve crimes. In real life, Baker, along with most people, was unable to anticipate or make sense of the financial crisis that hit the U.S. in 2008. His latest film, the financial drama Margin Call, focuses on a 24-hour window on the eve of the collapse. He plays a banker fighting to keep control. The movie also stars Kevin Spacey, Jeremy Irons and Demi Moore. The Australian actor says he remembers the general confusion felt by the public during that time. “It was all over the news and in the papers. ... It was so hard to see people in the position of making those decisions. It was such a grey area, certainly for me. How do they make these decisions? Who’s there in the room? Yesterday it was fine and today it’s all a mess.” The timing of Margin Call coincides with a monthlong protest called Oc-

George Clooney says Hollywood can be a ruthless place — but it’s nothing compared to the world of politics. The star, who plays a U.S. presidential hopeful in The Ides of March, said yesterday that “there’s a certain cutthroat element to the business” of moviemaking, but added that actors share a spirit of generosity that he doesn’t often see in politics. Most performers “are pretty kind to one another,” Clooney told reporters ahead of a gala screening of the movie at the London Film Festival. “Because you’re so lucky if you get to the position where you get to be in a film,” Clooney said. “You’re very privileged, and you understand that it’s not just your brilliance that got you there, that you’re standing on the shoulders of a lot of

happy accidents along the way.” Clooney directed, cowrote, produced and stars in the tale of a Democratic presidential contender, with Ryan Gosling as an idealistic aide swept up in a sex scandal in the final days of a closely fought primary campaign. The film also stars Philip Seymour Hoffman and Paul Giamatti as rival campaign managers, and Evan Rachel Wood as an ambitious intern. Clooney said the movie, adapted from a play by Beau Willimon, is “a pretty cynical look at politics.” He has said he held off filming it amid the wave of optimism that accompanied the 2008 election of President Barack Obama. Three years later, amid political division and economic gloom, that positive mood is long gone.

The waxwork of George Clooney is posed within the replica Oval Office at Maddame Tussauds in London. Clooney plays politics in his latest film, The Ides of March.

into the even more unforgiving world of politics.

Clooney, whose own private life is the subject of constant scrutiny, said he’s not tempted to step

“Hollywood is a bit more forgiving,” Clooney said, “because they don’t expect us to be saints.”

“I think that the ‘hope’ part of the hope message has been tamped down a bit,” Clooney said. “It’s all cyclical,”

he added. “It’ll change back again. I feel fairly optimistic about the way our country works.” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Dogs days gone ‘darker’ American version of Wilfred promises to stay dour, says star HANDOUT

SCENE@METRONEWS.CA

Ten years on, TV viewers still can’t seem to get enough of actor Jason Gann in a floppy dog suit. Which is just fine with the Aussie star of Wilfred, a short film that became an Australian TV series, only to be reinvented recently as an American sitcom. “It’s not like I’ve been wearing the suit for all 10 years. There have been long gaps,” laughs Gann, who was in Toronto Wednesday to promote Wilfred’s debut on the new FX-Canada. “But I could easily do it another 10 years. As long as people find the character funny and interesting.” In its American incarnation, Wilfred centres on a suicidal lawyer (Elijah Wood) who meets a comely neighbour and her dog Wilfred (Gann). Except Ryan sees Wilfred as an angry, pot-smoking man in a shabby dog suit. What ensue are odd adventures in which Wilfred shows Ryan how to overcome his fears and embrace life. Gann — who also co-created the series — says fans of the original Aussie ver-

sion shouldn’t worry that the show has been sanitized for North American audiences. “I never saw the two versions as all that different. To me, it just feels like the show and the character have evolved.” The American version has already proven a hit, with a second season already confirmed. “When I first read it, I laughed my ass off,” says American actress Fiona Gubelmann, who plays

Wilfred’s owner Jenna. “There are so many lines you just don’t forget easily.” She says the most difficult thing is keeping a straight face during film-

ing with a man-sized dog in your ear. “I’d be having a serious conversation with Elijah and all I hear behind me is ‘Ball! Ball! Ball!’. You really have to learn to block it out.” One element the American version does lack is some of the original’s swearing and nudity. “We had to work harder to keep it dark,” says Gann. “But I think we were so successful, we made the show even darker.”

When executives with Extreme Makeover: Home Edition contacted builder Sam Clifton about a project in Joplin, Mo., he told them it was a great idea, but building a single home wouldn’t send much of a message to a community that lost more than 7,000 of them to a devastating spring tornado. So on Wednesday, work began on a project to build seven homes in seven days that will be featured on the popular ABC show. It is another effort by volunteers to reshape the southwest Missouri community that’s still in the early stages of recovering from the May 22 twister that killed 162 people, one of the worst tornadoes in U.S. history. The homes, which are going up a few blocks from the city’s hospital, which was destroyed, will be far from opulent. Clifton, who is overseeing the project, said the new units will be functional, 1,300- to 1,800square-foot homes, similar in size and style to many of the dwellings destroyed in the tornado. “We want to help get the community going,” Clifton said. “Get some excitement going in the town. That’s my goal.” The TV show typically re-

builds a single home for a family that has been struck with some tragic circumstances. In Joplin’s case, the seven homes are being built along the same street, just a few blocks from the hospital that was destroyed in the tornado. Clifton said 10,000 volunteers have signed up to help with the project. Twenty-one general contractors from around the region have signed on, along with literally hundreds of skilled tradesmen. The families will be sequestered away from Joplin until Oct. 26, when host Ty Pennington will deliver the famous “move that bus” proclamation and they’ll see the homes for the first time.

Keaton book gives scoop on Woody GETTY IMAGES

She would know: Going out with Woody Allen was like being in a Woody Allen movie, Diane Keaton writes in an upcoming memoir. The Academy Awardwinning actress starred with Allen in such favourites as Sleeper and Love and Death and got an Oscar for Annie Hall, in which her baggy-panted WASP meshed unforgettably with Allen’s patented schlemiel. Allen and Keaton dated for a few years and remain close. “I was his endearing oaf. I had him pegged as a cross between a ‘White Thing’ and the cockroach you couldn’t kill,” Keaton, 65, writes in Then Again, which comes out next month and is excerpted in the November issue of Vogue, arriving Oct 25. “We shared a love of torturing each other with our failures. His insights into my character were dead-on and hilarious. This bond remains the core of our friendship and, for me, love.” Keaton writes that she met Allen in 1968 when they worked together in Allen’s stage comedy, Play It Again, Sam, roles they reenacted for the 1972 film version. Allen is the divorced neurotic who channels the spirit of Humphrey Bogart. The actress falls for

him in the script and did in real life. “How could I not? I was in love with him before I knew him. He was Woody Allen. Our entire family used to gather around the TV set and watch him on Johnny Carson. He was so hip, with his thick glasses and cool suits,” she writes. “He was even betterlooking in real life. He had a great body, and he was physically very graceful.” In what for Allen must have been a sign of true love, he even recommended an analyst. “Woody got used to me. He couldn’t help himself; he loved neurotic girls,” writes Keaton, whose other boyfriends have included Al Pacino and Warren Beatty. Keaton’s book centres on her close relationship with her mother, Dorothy Hall, and includes excerpts from family journals and letters. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

It wasn’t long ago that Bette Midler blasted Lady Gaga on Twitter for appearing in a costume that was similar to Midler’s famous mermaid-in-a-wheelchair get-up. Now the Divine Miss M is extending an olive branch by suggesting Gaga buy some of her originals. “I think she should go for a real wheelchair and a real fishtail because these are really beautiful. They are decorated and handbeaded,” Midler said. “If she is interested, she can have whatever she wants because she is a very talented girl and I love her a lot.” Gaga and the rest of the world will soon be able to bid on that costume and more, as she’s selling some of her outfits through Julien’s Auctions in Beverly Hills on Nov. 12, with some of the proceeds benefiting her charity, the New York Restoration Project. Was it crazy going through all of the costumes, sizes and styles?

It was my weight. It was my height. It was the fashion. It was what colour my hair was. It was who I was living

with, or who I was in love with. It is very, very moving, but it is also time to spin that stuff out into the world. You get to a certain point in life and you say, ‘Do I really want my daughter to have to deal with this when I am gone?’ It is just so massive and you don’t. You really don’t. You want people to have the joy of it while you are still alive. What are some of the items that you could not part with?

The dress that I wore to the red carpet for the opening of The Rose. I kept that back. That was the dress that made me cry because it was such a wonderful time in my life and I was surrounded by friends and I was so thin. You are selling the iconic mermaid costume?

Not just one. Some of my best ones are up for auction, and some of my chorus girls are up for auction, and I am waiting for Gaga to get in there and grab hers. Some of the wheelchairs are up for auction. I mean, there is a selection from everything. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Bette Midler is parting with some of her most famous wears for a good cause.

Questions More questions for Midler What if Gaga buys your entire collection? I would be thrilled. I hope she buys at least a little bit. It would be fun. There are so many wonderful ideas and so much of it. So much of it is so funny. Do you look back on some of this and think, I can’t believe I wore that? You can say I can’t believe I dressed up as a fish. You can say that. You can say I can’t be-

lieve I came out in a pair of knickers that were up to my neck. I can’t believe I wore a pair of pants up to my neck. You can say that about practically everything. But, I remember it all so fondly. It was a great ride. Just the best ride, just the most fun. How did choose? Some of the stuff is so well known and iconic, they kind of cherry-picked what they thought was the stuff that the fans and interested parties would respond to the most, and that is what they chose.

RECYCLING MUSIC WILL ONLY GO SO FAR SOUND CHECK

“A big part of why we keep recycling the music of the old innovators is because of technology. With the Internet, it’s never been easier to access the past.”

ALAN CROSS SCENE @METRONEWS.CA

I’m working my way through Retromania by Simon Reynolds, a book that explores why we seem so fascinated with fetishizing music of the recent past.

R

etro can be loosely defined as everything old is new again. Anything can be retro: fashion, art, advertising, movies, TV

and, of course, music. Reynolds points out that for the first time in human history, we’ve never been this obsessed with our own immediate past. Retro isn’t some antiquarian pursuit. We’re nostalgic for things within recent living memory. We still worship the music of the 60s. The rock giants of the 70s — Zeppelin, the Stones — are as big as they ever were. Clubs still hold Retro 80s nights and acts like OMD and Spandau Ballet are on the road again. Lately, it’s been all about celebrating the grunge era of the 90s with reunions (Soundgarden), documentaries (Pearl Jam) and commemorative CD reissues (Nirvana, U2). Meanwhile, current acts

have become very successful by recycling the past. I love the White Stripes, but hasn’t Jack White just put a fresher garage-rock spin on the blues? The Strokes, Franz Ferdinand and Interpol are New Wave and postpunk with new coats of paint. Isn’t Lady Gaga just Madonna 2.0? And while Adele, Amy and Duffy have made brilliant records, they sound like something transported ahead from 1966. And think about this: give me a single new sound/genre that will endure beyond the first years of the 21st century? There have been a few — grime, dubstep, maybe whatever Kanye is doing — but I’m not sure we’ll be wistful about this music ten years

from now. A big part of why we keep recycling the music of the old innovators is because of technology. With the Internet, it’s never been easier to access the past. And because so much of our immediate musical past has been preserved through YouTube, iTunes and millions of fan websites, it’s easier to mine it for ideas and influences. That’s great. But what happens when we run out of the past? Do we just start over? Or has as this music been around long enough that it’s become an artifact and can now only feed on itself ? Or will someone have come along to push popular music forward? These are all extremely big questions. Something to think about the next time you hear about the next big reunion tour.

Dum Dum gets a smarter sound Group speaks to Metro about changing up approach LAUREN DUKOFF/METRO WORLD NEWS

PAT HEALY

SCENE@METRONEWS.CA METRO WORLD NEWS IN BOSTON

The difference between the music of I Will Be the Dum Dum Girls’ 2010 debut, and this year’s Only in Dreams, is undeniable. Yet singer and guitarist Kristen Gundred tries to deny it. At least at first. “To me it’s not a dramatic shift,” she says. “It’s part of a process.” The singer, who writes all of the songs and goes by the stage name of Dee Dee, says that if there is any difference, it may have to do with her recording setup.

The Dum Dum Girls

The Dum Dum Girls EP from this summer, He Gets Me High, is a perfect transition between the two types of Dum Dum sounds. It also features a killer cover of The Smiths’ There Is A Light That Never Goes Out.

“A lot of times, it’s just a song I love,” says Dee Dee of her covers philosophy. “Or it’s something where regardless of the style ... there’s an undeniable pop element of the song I can cover in a very Dum Dum Girls way.”

HOW IT ALL BEGAN Jack Reacher was once an elite military cop but while undercover in pursuit of a brutal serial killer something happened. In The Affair the #1 New York Times bestselling author tells the start of the Reacher saga, a thriller that will take Reacher—and you—right to the edge . . . and beyond.

Three albums in and Metronomy, the electropop quartet based in Brighton, England, are only now getting name recognition in the U.S., Canada and in their native country. The second part is especially odd, because earlier this year they received a Mercury Prize nomination (the U.K. equivalent to a Grammy) for their latest album, The English Riviera. But frontman and Metronomy mastermind Joseph Mount is philosophical about the newfound fame. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Certainly with the English music press, you sometimes need to prove your

times is that it’s been in vogue for performers and musicians to write these books,” he says, “and people have been after me for the past decade to do one.” So does this mean that a Wolf memoir is forthcoming? His answer is loaded with both possibility and trepidation. “It’s in there, and it’s got to come out, so I would imagine so,” he says, “But there’s very few books of that nature that I find worthwhile.” You might have to wait, however. But in his live performance tonight he will be telling quite a few stories, mixed in with solo material and Geils fan favourites. “Sometimes when we’re backstage and the stories come out, they just end up onstage,” he says. Highlights on any given night might include tales of being chased down a back alley by Sly Stone, hanging out with Van Morrison, when the Irish singer called Cambridge home in the late ’60s, recording with Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, or living with David Lynch

Big, bad Wolf There was only one time that Peter Wolf can remember actually rehearsing a story. The J. Geils Band frontman heard people yelling out specifics from a story he had told to introduce the song, Must Of Got Lost after it appeared on a live album in the ‘70s. “I didn’t even know what people were yelling out when they were yelling out, ‘Raputa! Raputa!’ and people were getting into it and I had to sit in a hotel room and memorize it.”

while at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts. “It was sort of like the odd couple,” says Wolf of Lynch. “He was very neat and meticulous. I was sort of the bohemian mess.” Keeping with this bohemian mess tradition, Wolf says the stories he shares are very off-the-cuff. “Some nights we’ll put in 18 songs or sometimes 16 songs, depending on if I just rap on,” he says. “It’s all just very spontaneous.” GETTY IMAGES

Twilight star takes big bite out of gay rumours in media

ALL PHOTOS GETTY IMAGES

Kellan Lutz says straight men generally make for bad housemates Twilight hunk Kellan Lutz doesn’t mind the gay rumors going around about him — and he insists he knows where they come from. “I don’t Google myself, but I’ve heard that people think I’m gay. I’ve heard it all,” he tells the Advocate. “See, I don’t really go after girls. Most of the girlfriends I’ve had have come after me. So it’s really funny when girls get offended because I don’t hit on them. They will transform their insecurity into, ‘Oh,

that makes sense, because I heard you’re into guys and have a boyfriend.’ I’m like, ‘Seriously? That’s your tactic to get me to like you?’ There will always be rumors, but I know who I am.” Lutz also claims that he’d rather live with gay men than straight men. “They’re the cleanest, and they just take care of stuff,” he explains. “Straight guys are just kids who don’t pick up after themselves.”

Hunky Kellan takes rumours about his love life in stride.

You have to love the Europeans. Not only do they treat wine like it’s a part of everyday life, they have a ritual of pre-dinner drinks that makes booze a natural companion to their dining culture. They do it up best in Italy. Order a glass of the appealingly bitter Campari ($20.99 $27.49) and soda as a liquid preamble to your meal at any resto (here or there) and you’ll get a nod from your waiter that suggests he knows you know how to drink Italian. One of my favourite Italian cities to imbibe in is Verona in the province of Veneto. It’s surrounded by the wine regions of Valpolicella, Bardolino and Soave, and the popular sparkling wine Prosecco is made nearby. The Veronese are crazy for The Spritz: A mix of two ounces of Campari’s little (and less bitter) brother Aperol ($21.99 - $25.98) with an equal part Prosecco and a dash of sparkling water. Served over ice in a large wine glass and garnished with a slice of orange, it’s an appetite enhancing refresher. Thanks to its bright orange colour, it’s also an appropriate tipple for the fall season. PRICES

SENATORS

Quoted

“It was me, it's all on me. I'm guilty. Absolutely.” JETS COACH REX RYAN, WHO HAS APOLOGIZED TO CHARGERS COACH NORV TURNER. RYAN SAID ON WEDNESDAY THAT “I WOULD HAVE HAD A COUPLE OF RINGS,” IF SAN DIEGO HAD HIRED HIM AS COACH IN 2007. THE COMMENTS WERE TAKEN AS A SLIGHT AT TURNER, WHO HAS COACHED THE CHARGERS SINCE 2007 WITHOUT WINNING A TITLE.

JETS

Milan Michalek had two goals and an assist and Craig Anderson made 35 saves as the Ottawa Senators earned a 4-1 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday night. Jason Spezza notched two assists, and Daniel Alfredsson also scored for the Senators (2-5-0), while Colin Greening also added a pair of assists. Dustin Byfuglien scored the lone goal for the Jets (14-1), who were playing their third game in four nights. Ondrej Pavelec stopped 26 shots. It was the Senators' first win this season at Scotiabank Place. Ottawa got off to a strong start with a fourminute power play after Alexander Burmistrov was given a double minor for high-sticking. The Sens had a couple of good chances, but Pavelec was solid. The Jets, playing in Ottawa for the first time since November 1995, took a 1-0 lead late in the first period as Byfuglien drilled a shot from the blue-line that cleared traffic and got past Anderson. The Senators have now been outscored 14-2 in the first period.

Ottawa’s Craig Anderson, left, watches the play as Winnipeg captain Andrew Ladd, centre, battles with Jared Cowen.

Senators

The Senators were without defenceman Matt Carkner (knee, four weeks) and RW Bobby Butler (groin, indefinite). RW Zenon Konopka and D Brian Lee were healthy

scratches. Winnipeg was without RW Eric Fehr (shoulder, indefinitely), C Ben Maxwell (upper body, indefinitely), D Ron Hainsey (upper body, day-to-day). Defenceman Randy Jones and C Jim Slater were healthy scratches for the Jets.

Ottawa tied the game early in the second with a power-play goal as Michalek battled for a rebound in the crease. The Senators then took the lead for good when Spezza took

a pass from behind the net and beat Pavelec high glove-side. This marked just the second time this season that the Senators held a lead in a game and the first time

game notes

14-2

The Senators have now been outscored 14-2 in first periods so far this season. they would not relinquish it. A turnover at centre ice by Johnny Oduya proved costly as Alfredsson intercepted the pass and beat Pavelec high stick-side to give Ottawa a 3-1 lead midway through the third. Michalek scored his second into an empty net with

under a minute left to play. The winger has five goals on the season. Jesse Winchester returned to the lineup for the first time since suffering a shoulder injury on the opening day of training camp, but the Senators lost Peter Regin midway through the first with a shoulder injury and he did not return. Winnipeg's Andrew Ladd left the game early in the third after taking a puck in the face, but returned with just over five minutes remaining. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Canadian gold rush continues in Mexico CFL EXTRA POINTS DAN TOTH OTTAWA@METRONEWS.CA

John Hufnagel’s decision to bench quarterback Henry Burris this week shocked the reigning CFL Most Outstanding Player, but it’s the right move at the right time and almost every other coach

Michelle Li won an all-Canadian women's badminton final at the Pan American Games on Thursday, defeating Joycelyn Ko 21-13, 21-12. It was a second golden day for the 20-year-old from Markham, Ont., who won doubles gold Wednesday with partner Alexandra Bruce. Ottawa's Mo Zhang beat Xue Wu of the Dominican Republic in the women's table tennis final to qualify for the 2012 London Olympics and Quebec City's Elise Marcotte and Montreal's Marie-Pier Boudreau-Gagnon won gold in the women's synchronized swimming duet free routine.

Lots of upside to Stamps QB decision wishes he had the luxury of such a tough choice. Stamps backup Drew Tate has given every indication, despite limited action, that he’s the real deal and ready to step into the starting role. If Hufnagel’s hunch is right, Tate will be one of the top stories down the stretch and into the playoffs. Fail, and Hufnagel’s got one of the best QBs of this era fuming on the sidelines and

waiting for a chance to redeem himself. What could be better? The ideal scenario for Calgary is if Tate lights it up when he gets his chance, making the 36-year-old Burris and his salary in the $350,000 range expendable in the off-season. Burris would attract a handsome return in a trade (could any team need a QB more than Toronto?) allowing the Stamps to pad their Canadian talent with some Double Blue draft picks. The Argos, after wasting a

year and a half with the Cleo Lemon experiment, are now saddled with career backup Steven Jyles, who has shown only brief glimpses of potential in his half-dozen games running the offence. Most outstanding finish: Has a quarterback ever won the Most Outstanding Player award after an 0-5 start to the season? It could happen after B.C. Lions pivot Travis Lulay struggled early this year only to turn the season around with an eight-game winning streak and a guaranteed playoff

berth. While Lulay floundered, head coach Wally Buono appeared destined for the firing line. Fast forward two months and the Lions are fighting for first in the West and Wally is an obvious candidate for coach of the year honours. Saskatchewan riding Durant to the bitter end: Question a coach’s decision about the starting quarterback and you usually get the patented answer, “He gives us the best chance to win.” That holds true for Saskatchewan Roughriders

head coach Ken Miller, who is starting quarterback Darian Durant Friday night in Calgary. The game means nothing to the Riders, who can’t earn a playoff spot this season. But why Durant? There are question marks about Durant’s abilities after a disappointing season, but the man’s got a broken bone in his foot. The Riders should be playing backups Ryan Dinwiddie and Cole Bergquist to choose a successor. Surely by now they know what Durant can do.

Leo July 23-Aug.23 A good deed done with no thought of reward will have no end of positive effects over the next few weeks. Virgo Aug. 24- Sept. 22 Someone you meet on your travels will open your mind to possibilities you never dreamed of before. Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 23 The most important thing now is that you resist the temptation to follow the herd. Go your own way! Scorpio Oct. 24-Nov. 22 Stand back from yourself. Try to see why you think and act in certain ways. It makes it easier to change.

For today’s crossword answers and for expanded horoscopes, go to metronews.ca

Today’s horoscope Aries March 21-April 20 There seems to be a lot of stress in your life at the moment and you need to find ways to handle it. Exhale. Taurus April 21-May 21 Take responsibility for your own thoughts and actions. Make sure everyone knows who you are. Gemini May 22-June 21 If you’re convinced co-workers would not betray you, then give them the power to make decisions. Cancer June 22-July 22 Push your luck a bit. You are exceedingly sharp mentally at the moment, so you’ll see trouble before it arrives.

43 Dove’s call 44 Meadow 45 Always, in verse

Sagittarius Nov. 23-Dec. 21 Use your powers of persuasion

if you want to get something done.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 20 You’ll be in the mood to take a few risks today and there’s a good chance that some will pay off. Aquarius Jan. 21-Feb. 18 If you sit around waiting for other people to make the first move today, you won’t get much done. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20. For a change everyone seems to approve of what you are doing, which is nice. But don’t let their praise go to your head. SALLY BROMPTON
