Gretzky asked to buy MLSE

One exec says having The Great One on board is a ‘dumb’ idea $1.5 billion needed

Jackson Rathbone and Ashely Greene at the red carpet premiere for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 on Thursday outside the Winter Garden Theatre in Toronto. The 24-year-old Greene said one of her favourite moments in the film is the long-awaited wedding scene, which was shot outdoors in Squamish, B.C. DAVE STARRETT/FOR METRO

Cold weather doesn’t bite Twilight fans’ zeal Dozens of dedicated Twilight fans braved frigid temperatures to greet their idols at a Canadian premiere that featured co-stars Ashley Greene and Jackson Rathbone. “It’s been a little insane, but this is incredible,” Rathbone said. Greene, who plays the vampire Alice Cullen, said she was worried no one would linger outside the downtown theatre as temperatures hovered at 0 C. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Add Wayne Gretzky’s name to the list of people now said to be interested in buying Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment. The Great One was asked “months ago,” according to a source, to be involved by groups kicking the tires on the Ontario Teachers’ Pension Fund’s $1.5-billion share of the conglomerate. Gretzky told Sportsnet he hasn’t decided whether he would be involved with the unnamed U.S.based interests. What exactly his role would be — whether figurehead, president or in the management team — is unclear, but trying to add him as “Canadian content” for a U.S. owner makes a lot of sense, said Sportsnet analyst John Shannon, a for-

mer league executive. “They are trying to make it look like there is a Canadian-content factor,” said Shannon. “It’s Wayne Gretzky. There’s nobody more passionate about the game of hockey than The Great One.” One executive within the MLSE empire thought having Gretzky on board is a “dumb” idea. “Whoever buys this needs $1.5 billion, not Wayne Gretzky,” said the executive, asking not to be named. Rogers is also said to be interested. TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Girl falls from sixth-floor balcony Police are expected to lay charges after a three-yearold girl tumbled from the sixth-floor balcony of a Scarborough apartment building in the early-morning hours of Thursday. “Mommy, mommy,” she cried out, lying on a strip of grass by the building surrounded by a sharp wrought-iron fence, according to media reports.

But her mother didn’t come. Police had to knock on a few doors before finding the 24-year-old barricaded in her apartment, refusing to allow them inside, said Staff Sgt. Mike Gottschalk. The tactical unit had to be called in to break down the door, he said. The woman, who was “under some duress,” was taken to

hospital. She remains in custody. The girl was in and out of surgery all day. Some residents of the seven-story 915 Midland Ave. building woke to screams coming from the apartment around 4:30 a.m. As dawn broke, they struggled to make sense of what police are calling a “suspicious incident.”

Judge to rule Monday on whether the Occupy Toronto movement must move on from St. James Park Affidavits from four protesters challenging the city’s eviction notice are among the evidence Justice David Brown will consider in deciding whether the Occupy Toronto movement can remain in St. James Park. They argue disbanding the camp will destroy their movement and prevent them from working collectively to understand and resolve social and political problems. Here are some excerpts from their sworn statements: Bryan Batty, 24, Humber College business management student The encampment serves as a “model of transparency and respect” ... It’s a “symbol of the evolution of humans, from the nationalist rhetoric of our forefathers, to a true unification of all humankind.”

Lana Goldberg, 30, graduate student in political science at York University Occupiers are practising an alternative model of society. “I am intending to convey that we, the people, care about the world, are unhappy with the current state of affairs, want to put in the time and effort to improve it, and are willing to put our lives on hold and live in a park in order to bring about substantial changes.” Mari Reeve-Newson, 24, child and youth worker and Ryerson University student Without the encampment “it would be difficult to connect on a human level with like-minded people.” It also “represents to members of the public that there is hope that things can change.” TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Mari Reeve-Newson is one of the Occupy Toronto protesters who filed a charter challenge to stop the city from kicking the protesters out of St. James park.

Asking Ontario to be a good parent RICK MADONIK/TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Youth push for change in treatment of foster kids Justine mourned her 21st birthday like a death. “I remember sitting in my room by myself the day I turned 21,” she says. “I had been alone a million times before, but I never felt alone like I did that day.” After spending half of her young life as a Crown ward in the care of Children’s Aid, the province was cutting her loose. “Leaving care for me was sudden and very scary,” she recalls. “It felt like a punishment for all my growth, success and achievement.” Justine is one of an estimated one million Canadians who as children have been cared for by the state. On Friday, Justine and other young people from foster care start a bold experiment never attempted before in Canada. With the support of the Office of the

Success story Degree. Unlike most former foster kids, Justine completed her education. Not only that, she excelled. She graduated high school as an Ontario Scholar. She completed a four-year honours degree in social work and women’s studies on a full academic scholarship and scored at the top of her class.

Provincial Advocate for Children and Youth, they are holding their own hearings at Queen’s Park in the hope of making changes in light of shocking statistics. Just 44 per cent of Ontario’s current 8,000 to 9,000 Crown wards will complete high school and fewer still will go on to post-secondary education. They are more likely to live in poverty, experience

unemployment and homelessness, struggle with mental health and become involved with the criminal justice system. Justine, 24, Carlos, 27, and Shanna, 20, are three young people who have first-hand experience living and leaving foster care in Ontario. All are playing different roles as two days of Legislative hearings begin Friday at Queen’s Park. Justine is one of 48 who will address the proceedings. Carlos is one of 10 panellists who will run the hearings and listen to submissions. Shanna is one of four organizers. Despite their different roles, they all have the same goal: To make the Ontario government a more responsible parent.

Former Crown wards Shanna, 20, centre, Justine, 24, and Carlos, 27, pose in the Amethyst Room at Queen’s Park. They are participating in Legislative hearings Friday on youth care.

McGuinty says the ball’s not in his court TANYA TALAGA/TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Speaking at Don Mills Collegiate Institute on Thursday, Premier Dalton McGuinty declined to referee the controversy over a ball ban at Earl Beatty Public School. On Monday, students at Earl Beatty in the city’s east end received a letter saying they could no longer bring soccer balls, volleyballs or even tennis balls to school. The letter cited a “few serious incidents” in which students

and parents were hit by flying balls. Everybody wants to make sure kids are safe and active, said McGuinty on Thursday. His wife, Terri, is a primary school teacher in Toronto. “I don’t think balls are registered weapons, the last time I checked,” McGuinty joked. “But I am sure we are going to find a way forward and balls will be back in that schoolyard.”

Higher IQ for York Region traffic jams Municipality set to begin using real-time traffic monitoring system in January built around cellphones Traffic jams are not getting better, but they are getting smarter, thanks to the people stuck inside them. As drivers, transit passengers and pedestrians move across a wide, fastgrowing swath of the GTA — ranging from Vaughan and King in the west, Markham in the east, and all the way up to Georgina — Steven Kemp will follow along in real time, from the comfort of his office.

Canines vie for the spotlight at Woofstock Woofstock, North America’s largest festival for dogs and their two-footed companions, heads indoors for the holidays with the second annual

time traffic lights, lane closures, and plan smarter road improvements. The solution was designed by Waterloo-based Intelligent Mechatronic Systems (IMS). It relies on the very people who are using each roadway and path, any time of day. This information system relies on two “pings” each cellphone sends to a communications tower every second during a call. This amounts to approximately 4 billion pings a day in the GTA, according to IMS marketing vice president, Blair Currie. IMS picks up this inforWinter Woofstock. Pugs in parkas, schnauzer Santas and merry mutts, all dressed to the canines, vie for the spotlight while dashing dachshunds compete in “Wiener Dog Races,” Christmas canines lap up to the jolly guy in red for “Breakfast with Santa,” and more. Canines can put their best paw forward in pop-

mation through a contract with Rogers, uses GPS to strip out people who are inside buildings, then applies proprietary software to create a living grid of all traffic moving in the area. “From a traffic engineer’s point of view, we’ve never had access to this level of data before,” says Kemp. Until now, York Region relied on decades-old means to measure traffic, including hiring “students sitting in lawn chairs” to count cars at a fixed location, on a particular day, the engineer says.

be in place by January — at a cost of $201 million next year. The grant could save Ontario families $1,600 per student in university and $730 per student in college every year for

every family earning $160,000 annually or less, McGuinty said at Don Mills Collegiate Institute. “This is good for families, it is good for young people and the economy at the same time,” he said.

Benetton pulls pope ad The photo of the pope kissing Sheik Ahmed el-Tayeb of Cairo’s al-Azhar institute, the pre-eminent theological school of Sunni Islam, was on Benetton’s website all day Wednesday but was pulled about an hour after the Vatican’s protest. Al-Azhar suspended interfaith talks with the Vatican earlier this year after Benedict called for greater protections for Egypt’s minority Christians. In a statement, the Treviso, Italy-based clothing manufacturer said it was sorry that its image had offended the faithful and that as a result “we have decided with immediate effect to withdraw this image from every publication.” The other images, including the one of Obama, are still on its website.

Kiss a less than lovely trick: Vatican

Shock ads long a part of Benetton’s publicity strategy Company has used death row inmates, people dying of AIDS

The Vatican is taking legal action against the Benetton clothing company to prevent the circulation of an ad featuring a fake photo montage of Pope Benedict XVI kissing a top Egyptian imam on the lips. The Vatican said Thursday the image is “offensive not only to the dignity of the pope and the Catholic Church, but also to the sensibilities of believers.” Benetton withdrew the ad immediately after its debut Wednesday once the Vatican denounced it as an unacceptable provocation. Benetton had said its

“Unhate” campaign was aimed at fostering tolerance, but the Vatican’s daily newspaper Thursday called it “an insult to believers in the name of profit.” The campaign’s fake photos feature a half-dozen purported political nemeses in lip-locked embraces, including President Barack Obama and Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, and North Korean leader Kim Jong Il and South Korean President Lee Myungbak.

Martin makes no apology for potty-mouthed tirade NDP MP vents on Twitter after Tories shut down budget debate Followers jump to more than 3,000 ADRIAN WYLD/THE CANADIAN PRESS

Longtime New Democrat MP Pat Martin says he’s not sorry for unleashing a string of profanity on the social media site Twitter. Martin dropped a few Fand S-bombs on Wednesday night after the Conservative government shut down debate on a budget bill. “This is a (expletive) disgrace ... closure again. And on the Budget,” Martin tweeted. “There’s not a democracy in the world that would tolerate this jackboot (expletive).” The comments set off a stir in the Twitterverse after they were retweeted by some of Martin’s 1,600 followers.

A woman activist who posted nude pictures of herself on her blog to protest limits on free expression has triggered an uproar in Egypt, drawing condemnations from conservatives and liberals alike. Some liberals feared that the posting by 20-year-old university student Aliaa Magda Elmahdy would taint them in the eyes of deeply conservative Egyptians ahead of Nov. 28 parliamentary elections in which they are trying to compete with fundamentalist Islamic parties. Nudity is strongly frowned upon in Egyptian society, even as an art form. Elmahdy’s posting is almost unheard of in a country where most women in the Muslim majority wear the headscarf and even those who don’t rarely wear clothes exposing the arms or legs in public. Elmahdy wrote on her blog that the photographs — which show her standing wearing only stockings — are “screams against a society of violence, racism, sexism, sexual harassment

and hypocrisy.” The blog has received 1.5 million hits since it was posted earlier this week. The posting comes at a time when Egypt, a nation of some 85 million people, is polarized between Islamists and liberals ahead of the elections, the first since the February ouster of former President Hosni Mubarak. Members of the most hardline Islamic movement in Egypt, the Salafis, have warned voters during their campaigns that liberals will corrupt Egypt’s morals. “This hurts the entire secular current in front of those calling themselves the people of virtue,” Sayyed el-Qimni, a prominent self-described secular figure, said referring to Islamists.

If there’s any animal on Earth that could inspire people to engage in preventing man-made climate change, the polar bear is it. Majestic, powerful and deadly, the cuddly-looking bears are under direct threat from a warming

planet, and they’re already showing the symptoms. “What you’ll find in the short term is that polar bears will have to turn to other (foods),” said Dr. Pete Ewing, a marine scientist with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF). Last week, for example, scientists came across a group of about 15 polar bears eating rotten grain destined for the landfill. “There’s a population of polar bears here that are desperate. They haven’t been able to put on enough

weight of bears. They even found a bear that had died of starvation recently. As the summer ice in the Arctic melts at a faster rate, and winter ice comes in more slowly, the polar bear population declines. And the more it declines, the more scientists and groups like the WWF worry. Just last week, the Canadian government classified polar bears as a “species at risk.” That’s one step away from endangered. Ewing said scientific models show there’s no

stopping the inevitable decline of summer ice, so scientists are trying to figure out where the polar bear has the best chance of survival. In the meantime, people need to start reversing the damage they’ve caused to the Arctic through the consumption of fossil fuels — but they shouldn’t be overwhelmed. “There have been massive changes in our society over the last few hundred years,” said Ewing. “There’s no reason we can’t change again.”

Arctic research The WWF has been funding polar-bear research in Churchill on and off for the past 30 years, said Dr. Pete Ewing, but the Canadian government has not been maintaining its level of funding in recent years. “Arctic research can be difficult, it’s expensive,” said Ewing. “But for an Arctic nation like Canada … the World Wildlife Fund has been able to step in and help when (the Canadian government) has not.”

Wayward bears do time in jail Humans, bears coexist thanks to unique program Each year about 35 bears are put in ‘jail’ then lifted by helicopter to a location 60 kilometres away ELISHA DACEY

@METRONEWS.CA

When your town’s biggest nuisance can kill you with a casual swipe of a paw tipped with razor-sharp claws, grabbing the nearest shotgun when confronted with one seems a prudent idea. But that thinking led to the deaths of dozens of polar bears in and around Churchill, Man., a few decades ago. “Basically, if a bear came into town, it got shot,” said Manitoba Conservation’s Bob Windsor, who has helped remove about 100 bears from Churchill over the past three years. “That was not acceptable.” The Polar Bear Alert program changed all that, said Windsor. The program is simple: local residents call the Polar Bear Alert Line to tell conservation officers of an approaching bear. A humane trap is set, and the bear is taken to “Polar Bear Jail.” From there, they’re later lifted by helicopter to an area away from the town. The Polar Bear Alert Line

What happens to bears in jail?

Polar bears are incredibly strong. Once they’re captured, the bear trap is chained to the cell they’ll be held in, so that they won’t push the trap right out of the facility. Once held, they are tranquilized and researchers assess the bears’ condition. They

are tagged and tattooed so Manitoba Conservation can see whether a bear returns. Conditions inside the jail are cool and sparse. There is as little human interaction with bears as possible. Bears are not fed. They can go months without eating, and if they’re fed they tend to come back to the facility once released. After a quarantine period, bears are tranquilized and then carefully wrapped up in a net so their heads and ear tags don’t get tangled. The net is attached to a helicopter and the bear is taken to a safe location. Researchers make sure the bear is alert before leaving the area, as wolves have been known to prey on a groggy bear.

is manned at all times. Windsor said the program, while simple, has been extremely effective, cutting down on the number of polar bear deaths.

“We haven’t had a fatality (from a polar bear) in the town of Churchill since 1983,” said Windsor. “When I look at it that way, it makes it all worthwhile.” ELISHA DACEY/METRO

Coke, WWF team up for Arctic Home

ELISHA DACEY/METRO

Fifteen years ago, groups like the World Wildlife Fund did not partner with groups like Coca-Cola. The ultimate American brand, Coca-Cola’s perceived cultural pervasiveness and arrogance meant they were the enemy. But not anymore. Coca-Cola Canada president Nicolaos Koumettis said the company has actively tried to shed its image of taking over the world to one that preserves it over the past decade. “What happened is that we all learned, and that includes the WWF ... that if you want to achieve something big, you have to work in partnership. “We’ve worked with the WWF for many years on water conservation, and now it was time to take it to a new level.” Arctic Home is a major campaign launched by the WWF and Coca-Cola to raise money for polar-bear research in the Arctic. Koumettis said Coca-Cola will donate $2 million over the next four years toward that research.

Arctic Home is a new partnership between the WWF and Coca-Cola designed to generate awareness of the plight of the polar bear.

Gerald Butts, president and CEO of WWF Canada, said working with corporate partners who want to make the world better can affect the most change. “In general, you can make things happen a lot quicker with companies, especially on big issues,” said Butts, adding that Coke is one of the world’s biggest users of water, sugar, aluminum and other

commodities. “If they decide they are only going to buy goods that are procured and grown in a certain way, then we can change the supply chain overnight. We could lobby 100 governments for 50 years and never get them to change.” To promote the campaign, Coca-Cola changed its can from the traditional red to white with silver po-

lar bears. “It wasn’t a hard decision,” said Koumettis. Donations can be made at iCoke.ca. Coca-Cola will match donations from North America up to $1 million, in addition to money already pledged. ELISHA DACEY

Polar bears essential to Churchill: Mayor There are arguably only two industries in Churchill, Man.: Shipping and tourism. And both are under threat. The economy over the past five years means tourism is down overall, said Mike Spence, Churchill’s mayor and owner of Wat’chee Lodge. “Tourism has been down over the last couple of years due to the economy,” said Spence. “It’s understandable. People have less money to spend.” Churchill currently has a stable population of about 900 people, which doubles during bear season. However, Churchill’s population used to be

Tourist draws Tens of thousands of people flood to Churchill every year, mostly to see the polar bears. Excursions to see the northern lights in winter, birds in spring and beluga whales in summer also draw tourists to the town.

much bigger. “I grew up here when it had 6,000 people,” said Spence. “Tourism wasn’t even on the drawing board.” The population dwindled, however, when the

Canadian Armed Forces moved out, so citizens had to start looking for new ways to bring money back into the town. “Tourism began to be kicked into gear because we had more bears coming through (the town) because the military wasn’t keeping them out.” In the late 1980s, tourism exploded. Since then, the polar bear has become synonymous with Churchill. “When you’re tagged with the moniker The Polar Bear Capital of the World, there’s a lot of pride in that,” said Spence. ELISHA DACEY

Ultimate logo

Polar bears have been used as a logo for everything from diamonds to sports teams. The polar bear has been the official symbol of CocaCola since 1922. It started with an ad campaign in France and grew from there. Canadian company Polar Bear Diamonds uses the bear as its official symbol. The Hudson Bay Helicopters uses a polar bear in its logo.

Value of summer ice Ice is hugely important in the life cycle of polar bears, even in summer Here are 6 reasons why: ELISHA DACEY

@METRONEWS.CA

1. Polar bears’ favourite food is ring seals, and ring seals are hunted from the ice. If the ice has disappeared, the bear is forced onto shore, where seals can’t be hunted. When the ice freezes over in winter, there is little to eat. 2. With fewer seals to feast on, the female polar bears don’t gain enough weight. While there may be other sources of food available, the fatty ring seals provide a higher caloric content. 3. If female polar bears

don’t put on enough weight, they are less likely to become pregnant or carry cubs to term. 4. Fewer pregnancies means there are fewer polar bears. 5. Polar bears also prefer to avoid each other. Less sea ice in the summertime means bears will have more frequent encounters with other bears and less space to roam. 6. The loss of summer ice is already having an effect on polar-bear populations. Bears are resorting to eating nutritionally deficient foods such as kelp, and instances of cannibalism are on the rise.

Melting ice taking its toll The melting of Arctic ice in the summer will be both an economic blessing and a curse, says marine scientist Dr. Peter Ewing. • Warmer summer months mean longer shipping seasons for the port of Churchill, Man. Passages that were previously ice-covered will become much easier to navigate. More shipments means more jobs. It also means the easier shipment of necessary goods to Northern Canada. • Local Inuit will see a vast cultural change. Peoples who hunt and trap to feed their fami-

lies will see their traditional culture evolve as bears, seals and other Arctic animals disappear. The government will have to deal with an entire culture that can no longer support itself. • People do not understand the role the Arctic plays in regulating weather, said Ewing. A melting Arctic means the Earth will heat up even faster, leading to more violent weather and flooding, which will result in more damage to cities and infrastructure, not to mention the loss of life. The total bill for all this chaos is impossible to estimate accurately, but some reports have put it at trillions of dollars. ELISHA DACEY

Family of fallen soldier testifies

Military reservist’s kin open up about loss, agony at hearing Former friend who killed soldier found guilty ANDREW VAUGHAN/THE CANADIAN PRESS FILE

George Megeney regrets a talk he had with his nephew before the young reservist departed for Afghanistan and his subsequent death at the hands of a fellow Canadian soldier. The uncle was one of several members of Cpl. Kevin Megeney's family to testify on how the shooting of the Nova Scotia reservist by a friend and colleague in 2007 has affected them. Their statements came one day after a military judge found Matthew Wilcox of Glace Bay, N.S., guilty of criminal negligence causing death and negligent performance of

Freedom 55 dream fades

Boeing. Orders

Many seniors resort to reverse mortgages to help finance their lifestyles Canadians may have to put aside dreams of being financially free by their mid50s. A majority will carry mortgage debt long after they become eligible for seniors discounts, according to Royal Bank’s latest housing survey. Three-quarters of Canadians surveyed for the poll

Another one-third of Canadians who are 55 or older have at least 16 years left on their mortgage term, the bank found. Concerns about post-retirement debt have been growing since the recession, when many Canadians saw the value of their savings wiped out due to

losses on equity markets. Another problem lies in statistics that point to seniors being lured by low interest rates to pile on debt. A recent TD Bank report noted that those 65 years and older racked up debt at three times the average pace over the past decade. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Boeing lands huge order Boeing said Thursday that Indonesia’s Lion Air plans to buy 230 jets, the airplane maker’s biggest order ever. Lion Air said it plans to buy 201 of Boeing’s 737 Max planes, which are getting design tweaks and new engines to make them more fuel efficient, and 29 extended-range 737s. The orders were announced during President Barack Obama’s trip to Bali, Indonesia.

Government urged to put a price on water The federal advisory body on sustainable development wants governments to put a price on water used by industry — even though Canada is awash in H2O, and companies are getting better at using it efficiently. “A price on water reduces intake by industry resulting in more water conservation and better water use efficiency,” the National Round Table on the Environment and the Economy says in a report. Researchers found that

The study 86% found that natural-resource sectors account for 86 per cent of Canada’s overall water use. The largest user by a wide margin is the thermal electricity sector. while water-heavy industrial activity is expected to increase by about 40 per cent to the year 2030, water usage will rise just three per cent, which Canada may not be able to afford.

Ottawa unveils new pooled pension plans

Critics’ views Ken Georgetti, president of the Canadian Labour Congress, called PRPPs “a piecemeal approach” that

rewards banks, insurance companies and mutual fund firms instead of offering real retirement security options for everyone.” Paul Moist, national presi-

dent of the Canadian Union of Public Employees, said expanding CPP is the way to ensure Canadians have a secure, decent income in retirement.

Welcomed by bankers, self-employed professionals, business owners Criticized by labour leaders The federal government says it’s tabling legislation to establish pooled registered pension plans to help Canadians save. The savings vehicle is designed for the self-employed or those working for small firms that cannot afford pensions. Ottawa and the provinces agreed to the initiative last December. Minister of State for Finance Ted Menzies announced in Toronto that the PRPPs will give small firms and their workers access to a large privately administered pension plan for the first time. He says about 60 per cent of Canadians don’t contribute to a private pension plan currently.

“Polls have shown that 74 per cent of Canadians don’t make contributions to RRSP and other private pension vehicles because they can’t afford it. This new PRPP legislation does nothing to address this simple fact.” PAUL MOIST, CUPE NATIONAL PRESIDENT

The PRPPs, however, are voluntary and allow workers to opt out, and do not require firms to contribute. Critics, including some provincial governments,

have argued that the new plan is inadequate to meet the need for greater retirement security and have asked the government to expand the Canada Pension Plan. But the Canadian Federation of Independent Business, a 108,000-member lobby group for small- to mid-sized companies, praised the Harper government for making the PRPPs voluntary and called on provinces to follow Ottawa’s lead. The Ontario Medical Association, which represents the province’s mostly self-employed doctors, also issued a statement in support of the pooled pensions.

CANADA SHORT ON DRUGS, NBA SHORT ON GAMES THE METRO LIST

1

Adult education. U.S. Prez Barack Obama raised eyebrows at the APEC summit in Hawaii with MIKE BENHAIM his comments regarding ChiMETRO na’s economic responsibility. Obama stated that now that they’re a fullgrown economic power, it is time to “Act like a grownup.” China’s delegates responded by saying, “I know you are, but what am I?” Stick it to da man! An Ontario man drove his car through the front doors of Waterloo Regional Police headquarters last Sunday. Police believe it was deliberate because, instead of stopping, he continued driving around the reception desk before crashing into a vending machine. No one was hurt, but the man’s Twix bar did remain lodged on the coil dispenser, and his change was never returned. That is frustrating. Where my drugs at? Apparently Canada is experiencing some dubious medication shortages. Health Canada says their only concern is drug safety, while distribution is left to the pharmaceutical companies. The reason for the shortage is unknown as is the extent and impact because our government does not collect such data. To be fair though, the shortage will not affect the majority of Canadians. It’s really just the sick people. Hands off. Brief note in case of ambiguity: Showering with your 11-year-old son at the gym — fine. Showering with someone else’s 11-year-old son — NOT FINE! Any questions, Penn State? Smooth Criminal. Last week, Michael Jackson’s personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter for negligence believed to have caused the singer’s death in 2009. He faces up to four years in prison while Michael’s plastic surgeons get off scot-free. Too much too soon. Seventeen-year-old Justin Bieber recently dished out 100,000 pounds on a new Range Rover with a custom sound system worth 50,000 pounds. This is just one of many for Justin, including a Batman-themed Cadillac and a Ferrari, which he recently smashed. When I was 17, my parents grounded me for a fender-bender in my mom’s 1978 Monte Carlo. Just saying. In yo’ face. Just when we thought they were close to an agreement, the NBA lockout hit an impasse this week. With a shortened season looming, millionaires on both sides could not arrive at an answer to the question “How many millions is too many millions?” The likely answer now is “No millions at all.” Sweet Jesus. Canadian comic Russell Peters will perform a nativity sketch in his Christmas special, which airs on CTV and The Comedy Network in December. He has chosen Pamela Anderson to play the Virgin Mary, which is funny because it marks the first time her name and the word “virgin” have ever appeared next to each other in the same sentence. A sad farewell. Canadian comic Stewart Silver passed away suddenly at age 44 this week. A national Yuk Yuk’s mainstay for the past two decades, fellow Montrealer, dear friend and all-around good guy will be sorely missed. On behalf of the entire comedic community, I offer our condolences to his family. We thank you for the laughs. R.I.P.

photo of the day Letters I have been reading and watching the stories of Jenna Morrison’s premature departure due to a cycling accident. The claim is if we have separate cycling lanes or truck guards then there would be no more deaths. I find this hard to believe. I am a cyclist who has been cycling in Toronto for 35 years. I still cycle from north of the 401 to the lake during all hours of the day on all the major streets. I have had a few encounters with vehicles but have avoided confrontations by stopping and letting them go ahead of me. How many cyclists ride between the curb and vehicles when the vehicles are stopped at a red light? The cyclist is supposed to stop behind the last car and not advance until that car does. I see this all the time along with cars that have started their right turn and a cyclist will ride in front of the car causing the vehicle to stop quickly. This is against the law for a cyclist besides taking a huge risk. I believe cyclists will continue to get hurt or killed if they take unnecessary chances. GLENN TORONTO

WEIRD NEWS

Flight almost gets flushed A jammed lock on an airplane bathroom door caused anxious moments for the pilots aboard a flight from North Carolina to New York City. The captain told air traffic controllers he accidentally got stuck on the LaGuardia Airport-bound Chautauqua Airlines flight from Asheville on Wednesday night. When a passenger with an unfamiliar accent tried to alert the co-pilot in the cockpit, the co-pilot became alarmed and notified air traffic

controllers, according to a recording of the radio exchange from the website LiveATC.net. “The captain has disappeared in the back and I have someone with a thick foreign accent trying to access the cockpit right now, and I’ve got to deal with this situation,” the co-pilot says. A controller tells him to consider declaring an emergency. The captain eventually got himself free from the lavatory. He told controllers there was no threat. “The captain — myself — went back to the lavatory and the door latched ... and had to fight my way out of it with my body to get the door open,” the captain says. “There is no issue, no threat.” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

MOBILICITY

the previous year. Wireless service caused the most headaches; and 80 per cent of all complaints had to do with billing errors and contract disputes.

M ETRO CUSTOM PUB LISH I NG PRESENTED BY

Many wireless customers are unhappy about the cost of their service too, according to the J.D. Power and Associates 2011 Canadian Wireless Customer Satisfaction Study. The study also showed that the cost of monthly contract service has increased on average to $78 in 2011 from $71 in 2009. Furthermore, just about half of customers in the study who had a wireless sales experience within the past six months were switching or considering switching carriers to one of the newer wireless service providers such as Mobilicity. Burnaby, B.C. realtor Ian Su is a good example. He switched to Mobilicity to free himself of all the additional charges on his old $45 plan. He had actually started to limit calls he made to clients unless he was at the office or a coffee shop with free WIFI – and that was stressful and reduced his productivity. His solution was to buy a Mobilicity Android smartphone with unlimited talk text and data service. As Su discovered, the industry is getting more competitive – and this is especially true as the holiday season approaches. Earlier this week, Mobilicity cut its regular monthly rate plans by 50 per cent for a limited time.

THIS CHANGES

EVERYTHING NEW WIRELESS SERVICE PROVIDERS PUT CUSTOMERS FIRST

Leasa Sulz couldn’t believe it! When she’d signed up for a wireless plan back in 2008, she’d negotiated unlimited texting. But her bill was for more than $1,000 with $970 of that for texting. Then it took Sulz, of Edmonton, an aggravating five months to reverse the charges and fix the problem.

She’s not alone. In fact, these types of complaints are on the increase. Canada’s Commissioner for Complaints for Telecommunications Services received 8,007 official complaints about cellphones, home phones and internet service in 20102011, an increase of 114 per cent over

Named one of Canada’s Top 25 Up and Coming Information and Communication Technology start-ups in 2010, Mobilicity scored highest in overall customer satisfaction – +28 per cent higher than the average wireless company. The company provides unlimited talk, text and data plans, affordable North American coverage, and popular handsets and smartphones with no contracts or extra or hidden fees. Says Mobilicity’s CEO Dave Dobbin: “There are no contracts and you won’t receive an outrageous bill at the end of the month with surprise charges and extra fees. The price of the plan is the price that you pay, it’s that simple.”

MOBILICITY: MAKING A DIFFERENCE

• Vancouver consultant Chad Brown switched to Mobilicity after he received a $475 bill from a large carrier last spring. One thousand outgoing daytime minutes in his old $45 plan weren’t enough. “But now I don’t have to worry about going over.”

• When Vineet Sharma, a sales analyst, moved to Toronto from Australia, he ended up buying a top-of-the-line Android phone from Mobilicity and put it on the carrier’s $35 unlimited talk and text plan. He added unlimited data for an extra $10. Sharma had never thought to access email or the internet due to high wireless data calls. “But with Mobilicity, I pay a fixed monthly rate. If my plan says it is $45, it’s only going to cost me $45.”

• When Ottawa office manager Eugenia Montes switched her family to Mobilicity, she cut their monthly $200 bill in half. Now, thanks to her plan’s unlimited North America long distance and global text features, Montes calls and texts friends and family in New York regularly. “I’d be crazy if I didn’t switch.”

SHOPPING FOR A SMARTPHONE? HERE ARE 5 HELPFUL TIPS There’s a reason smartphones are all the rage and industry analysts are projecting over a billion people around the world will own one by 2013. Smartphones offer the functionality of a mobile phone, computer and media player all in one savvy device.

2

For those who want to regularly browse the web, watch video and play games, a touch-screen Android smartphone, like the Samsung Nexus S, is a better bet with its large, vivid, touchresponsive display and app marketplace.

But with so many from which to choose, making a smart smartphone decision isn’t always easy.

3

The key is to determine how the device will be used beyond making phone calls, according to unlimited wireless carrier Mobilicity who offers consumers these handy tips:

4

1

For avid texters and emailers, smartphones with a raised keyboard, like on the new BlackBerry Bold 9900, are recommended because they enable quick and easy typing and messaging.

Music and movie buffs should get enough onboard memory to store their favourite tunes and flicks. For most, 16 GB of space should do the trick. Business professionals will appreciate cool value-add features like the ringer on the HTC Panache Android smartphone which can be silenced in meetings or other quiet areas, simply by turning the device over. It also has a front-facing camera so users can take perfectly framed self-portraits and videos.

5

Whether the phone is for you or a friend, look beyond the price of the hardware. Calculate the longterm usage costs, especially since data can be expensive. Look for an unlimited data plan that is truly unlimited and prevents the possibility of a whopper of a bill from watching YouTube, checking email and downloading hot, new apps every month.

KEEPING

IN TOUCH THE BEST (AND MOST INEXPENSIVE) GIFT OF ALL

If budget or circumstance means you won’t get home for the holidays this year, don’t despair. Celebrating with faraway friends

and family is getting easier and more affordable thanks to advances in Canada’s mobile phone market, says Anthony Booth, chief customer officer at Mobilicity, an unlimited wireless carrier.

“Canadians are finally starting to enjoy lower wireless rates with unlimited plans that include free long distance across Canada and the U.S.,” he explained. ���Now, calling relatives located thousands of kilometres

away can be as affordable as calling people in the same city from your mobile phone.” Long-distance calling aside, Booth says there are many other ways to inexpensively stay connected to everyone over the holidays using a smartphone.

STAY CONNECTED Send quick holiday greetings, updates and photos via Twitter or BlackBerry Messenger (BBM). If you don’t have a data plan or would rather text, go with a carrier like Mobilicity that offers free global texting.

VIDEO GREETINGS Use your smartphone with a front-facing camera, like the HTC Panache, to film a video holiday card as an alternative to a traditional greeting card. Simply upload to a private link on YouTube and email your loved ones the link. Prefer talking in real-time? Some carriers offer affordable global long distance rates that rival calling card rates.

ONLINE CALLING Internet-based calling apps like Skype will let you talk to your heart‚s content without the worry of a costly bill.

timetres at its thickest point, it’s one of the slimmest laptops on the market. It’s also incredibly light, weighing only 2.38 pounds.

your face and continuously focus, even if you move. HP PhotoSmart eStation — $399 It’s an all-in-one printer with a twist! Sure, it can print, scan, copy and fax, but the seven-inch LCD display holds a secret … you can detach the touchscreen and use it as a basic tablet. Read e-books, send email, log onto Facebook or control your printer wirelessly. You can also download a select number of apps from HP, which will allow you to print everything from recipes to colouring book pages for your kids right from the tablet.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 — starting at $499 An Android tablet with snappy performance thanks to its 1GHz Dual Core processor. The 10.1-inch screen makes it easy to surf the web (including Flash content), or watch movies.

If you are in a creative mood you can record your own HD movie via one of two cameras (2 megapixel and 3 megapixel) built into the device. A battery that lasts up to nine hours makes it ideal for travel. Wi-Fi and 4G models are available. Microsoft Touch Mouse — $79.99 This optical mouse features a touch sensitive surface to allow for finger gestures on PCs running Windows 7. Users can scroll through webpages, minimize windows and much more. Thanks to BlueTrack Technology this mouse will work on virtually any surface! iPad 2 — starting at $519 Apple’s iPad 2 remains the No. 1 tablet on the mar-

ket. Its stylish form factor and intuitive operating system make it easy for anyone to pick up and use. With more than 500,000 apps available in Apple’s app store, there truly is an app for everything. While the cameras may not be quite as good as those found on other tablets, they are ideal for FaceTime chat (free video calling from one Apple device to another). The fact that you can’t view Flash content on this device still hasn’t deterred people from falling in love with the iPad 2.

Best gifts come from the heart HEATHER BUCHAN FOR METRO

Yes, it’s the season of giving, but that doesn’t mean you have to overspend at Christmas. Here are some quick tips for ways to enjoy the holidays without feeling the burden of spending. It’s a reminder to us all that some of the greatest gifts come from the heart. Making edible gifts Making edible gifts is a

great way to save money on presents at Christmas. Whether it’s shortbread cookies, brownies, jam, homemade granola, cake or syrup, the confectionary options are endless, as are the ways in which to package your culinary creation in a festive, but inexpensive way. The gift of time Giving the gift of time is a meaningful way to show just how much you care. Whether it’s giving a rel-

ative a handmade gift certificate to be redeemed

throughout the year for a special home-cooked dinner, a foot massage, a night out while you watch the kids, or a house clean, this type of gift can, many times, be much more appreciated than buying them an object. Giving time to the community also gets children to think beyond themselves during the holidays. This could involve volunteering as a family at a local charity

or shelter or dedicating an afternoon to helping out at a food bank or serving a meal at a drop-in centre. Inexpensive family activities There are numerous ways to enjoy time with family and friends leading up to and during the holidays without spending a ton. • Buy a gingerbread house kit at the supermarket ($10 to $15) and devote an

evening to making it together. • Dedicate a weekend afternoon to making Christmas tree ornaments to adorn your tree. Not only is this valuable family time, but it’s a creative outlet for all members of the family and, best of all, handmade ornaments are meaningful for holidays to come. Most of the materials can be bought at art supply stores or dollar stores.

Choose charity for that special someone TERESA CHIYKOWSKI FOR METRO

This holiday season take the guesswork out of deciding what to buy for the person who has everything. Eliminate the awkwardness of exchanging cheques or ugly sweaters with your siblings. Avoid the frenzied trip to the mall and the search for that all-elusive parking spot. Give a charitable gift. Gifts that “give back” come in all shapes and sizes and offer something for just about everyone. So, if you are in the market for that perfect charitable

gift for that special person in your life, where do you begin? Here are some ideas to get you started. Thousands of charities that start at home CanadaHelps.org is a onestop shop for giving that allows you to donate to any Canadian charity.

Synopsis

Team Werewolf: Need some convincing to get hairy with Richard? Ginger Snaps and Dog Soldiers expand on the werewolf story. The Howling and An American Werewolf in London both contain Reaganera thrills. And, of course, no lycanthropic list would be complete without The Wolf Man. Team Vampire: Looking for a good vampire flick to sink your teeth into? Coppola’s Bram Stoker’s Dracula has thrills and atmosphere. But a more unusual choice would have to be Shadow of the Vampire, one creepy flick. For over-the-top wild fun, nothing beats Nic Cage as a reluctant vampire in Vampire's Kiss.

In the Twilight series, Bella has a hard time deciding if she wants a vampire or werewolf bite.

A ‘biting’ battle Richard Crouse and Mark Breslin pick supernatural sides in an age-old battle Richard: Mark, on the occasion of the release of Breaking Dawn, the nextto-last in the Twilight saga, it’s time we finally debated the burning question on the lips of every Twihard — who would win in a fair fight between a vampire and werewolf ? I’m on Team Werewolf for this one. Big fangs coupled with hot-blooded animal instincts trumps the oversized molars of the nocturnal undead any day (or night for that matter). Mark: Fighting each other, Richard, you might have a point. But in a fight against humans, I have to say I’m a vampire man. You can spot a werewolf a mile away, enough

time to run for cover. But vampires can be undetectable, until it’s too late. They can seem perfectly normal until they open their mouths, kind of like members of the Tea Party. It really comes down to the relative dangers of brute force versus seduction, doesn’t it? RC: Perhaps so. Bella, the vampire groupie of Twilight, certainly finds the blood-suckers irresistible, but I’d suggest Jack Nicholson, as the hirsute gentleman in Wolf, is much more of a charmer than the vampires of Near Dark. They don’t seduce as much as manipulate, taunt and slaughter their victims in the nastiest of ways.

MB: The vampires in Near Dark should be thrown out of the Vampire Union! But if you’re using Jack Nicholson as an example of the urbane, more mature werewolf, let me submit Frank Langella in Dracula and George Hamilton in Love at First Bite as vampiric counterparts. The sadder but wiser vampire for me! But really, Richard, who would you rather meet in a dark alley? Kate Beckinsale or Benicio Del Toro? Case ... closed ... I think. RC: Hmmm… I’ll take Kate, but remember Underworld? She played a beautiful vampire but who was she in love with? A werewolf. I rest my

case. In the battleground of love chalk one up for the werewolves. To answer our original question I checked with the authority — the internet — and found this: “In a fair fight (no weapons) a werewolf will destroy a vampire in a few seconds (unless the vampire is smart and tries to run away).” I rest my case. MB: Ahh, but the vampire is nothing if not smart — way smarter than the werewolf — smart enough not to engage in a fight that he cannot win. But I’ll concede to you on this one. I’ll be in the corner ... sulking ... with Kate Beckinsale to give me solace.

Meeting Kermit When The Muppets iconic star Kermit The Frog came to Toronto a few weeks ago for a media press conference hosted by Metro’s own Richard Crouse, this scribe brought his fouryear-old son Jack out to meet him. Sitting attentively in the front row amidst a sea of print, radio and TV elite, Jack — who had just

come from a press screening of the film — listened and watched wide eyed as Kermit fielded reporters’ questions and engaged in all manner of witty banter. When Crouse called an end to the event, Jack moved closer, offering Kermit a picture he drew and hoping to shake the Frog’s fuzzy hand. Kermit obliged, of course, carefully saddling up beside the

understandably starstruck lad, posing for a photo and a hug. It was the kind of moment a child — and a film loving parent — only dream of experiencing and if the look on Jack’s face and the excited stories he now relates daily about that moment are any indication, the over fourdecades-old Muppets franchise still has massive magic.

The man who had his own masturbation station in the laugh out loud bromance I Love You, Man, may seem like the least likely candidate to revive a legendary children’s entertainment franchise, but that’s exactly what charming multi-hyphenate actor/writer Jason Segel did with his latest picture, The Muppets. Segel (who also wrote and starred in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, as well as serving as one of the leads on the smash hit sitcom How I Met Your Mother) penned the screenplay and stars as Gary, happy go lucky brother to melancholy muppet Walter, a felt-skinned kid who is obsessed with the late, lamented variety series The Muppet Show. When the siblings — along with Gary’s fiancée Mary (Amy Adams) venture to Hollywood to find Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie et al, they pal around with a legion of Henson heroes, run afoul of an evil oil baron and spearhead a comeback show. It’s all rather marvelous, heartfelt fun. “When I started this project,” said Segel in Toronto recently to promote the film, “I made it mandatory that we had to acknowledge that the Muppets aren’t as famous

anymore. And I’ll be honest, there was some controversy, there was some ego involved there, but it was important. But it became the core of the film, that the Muppets have to put on a show to remind the world about them.” Over 270 Muppets make it onto the screen, including such obscure characters as the diabolical Uncle Deadly and the massive Sweetums. In fact the only Muppet created for the film is Walter, our entry point into the film. Originally, however, Walter was designed to be a very different character. “In my early drafts Walter was a puppet, my ventriloquist dummy and the secret is that he’s actually alive,” admits Segel. “But when the puppeteers got involved in the process, they said you never acknowledge that these character are puppets, ever. So instead, we made him my brother…and we never acknowledge it!” The Muppets is ideal family fare, with enough antics and tunes to please the kids and plenty of humour to please the parents. In other words, it’s a classic Muppets outing in every sense. “It was all about balancing levels of nostalgia … and about making sure people just have a great time at the movies,” says Segel.

Movie reviews

The Descendants Genre: Comedy/Drama Director: Alexander Payne Stars: George Clooney, Shailene Woodley 8811

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 Genre: Drama Director: Bill Condon Stars: Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner 8

Lurching toward the conclusion of the Twilight series, the first half of Breaking Dawn hits screens with a resounding thud, committing a sin the previous films had at least managed to avoid, despite their faults: The new film is incredibly boring. There’s precedence for this two-book split, of course, as the Harry Potter folks divided their final installment into two mas-

sive films over the past year. But the effectiveness of this move only further highlights how unnecessary it is with Breaking Dawn. The events of the film’s first hour — planning the wedding, going through with the wedding, going on a honeymoon and Bella getting knocked up — could’ve taken 15 minutes in the hands of filmmakers less concerned with overindulging the series‚ diehard fans. But then, maybe they were right to do it this way, as there’s clearly no other possible audience for this than Twihards. NED EHRBAR

Director Alexander Payne’s first film since Sideways continues his exploration of men disconnected from their lives. Centred on the tough choices Matt King (Clooney) must make after his wife is left in a coma, King is forced to reconnect with his two daughters, deal with his Café de Flore Genre: Drama Director: Jean-Marc Vallée Stars: Vanessa Paradis, Kevin Parent, Helene Florent 881

The two stories that make up Café de Flore, are bound together by a song called Café de Flore. More importantly, however, is the idea of the uncompromising power of true love

sick wife’s infidelity and shepherd a family land deal in their native Hawaii. The Descendants lays bare the raw and mixed emotions that come when making decisions without having all the answers. IAN GORMELY that connects the stories of a jet-setting Montreal disc jockey (Kevin Parent) and the single mother (Vanessa Paradis) of a Down syndrome child. The main pleasure here is watching Paradis throw glamour out the window and deliver a gritty, but lovingly rendered performance as a protective mother. RICHARD CROUSE

Happy Feet Two Genre: Animation Director: George Miller Stars: Elijah Wood, Robin Williams, Pink 8811

The original Happy Feet and its sequel don’t look or feel like other movies for kids. Director George (Mad Max) Miller is a maximalist director who opens up the usual kid flick palette with swooping cameras, wide-open vistas and beautifully ef-

fective 3D. Featuring a cast of thousands — animated penguins as far as the eye can see and “krillions” of krill — Happy Feet Two is made on a scale that would make Cecil B. DeMille proud. It’s also a step above most kid’s movies. Joyful and beautiful to look at, it has more to say about life, love and the pursuit of happiness than most movies aimed at adults. RICHARD CROUSE

The lyrics of the song include: “We came here to party (ROCK!)/We didn’t come here to fight/ We both get a lot of attention in the press / You sellin' books and wanna be the president / We sellin’ hooks and the flow is heaven sent/ We both hustlin’ so why we tustlin’.� RedFoo told the Washington Post that after the incident made national news, “both parties were fighting.

Demi Moore and Ashton are done

GETTY IMAGES

Demi Moore is ending her marriage to Ashton Kutcher. The 49-year-old actress announced her divorce plans to The Associated Press Thursday, saying sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doing it with â&#x20AC;&#x153;great sadness and a heavy heart.â&#x20AC;? She said that â&#x20AC;&#x153;as a woman, a mother and a wife, there are certain values and vows that I hold sacred, and it is in this spirit that I have chosen to move forward with my life.â&#x20AC;? Moore adds that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a trying time for her and her family, so she asked for people to respect her privacy. Moore and Kutcher were wed in September 2005. The coupleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s relationship became tabloid fodder in recent months as rumours swirled about Kutcherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s alleged infidelity. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

EMILY RICHARDS

The appeal of quick breads isn’t merely the ease, though you have to love any baked good that is no more complicated than mixing a bunch of things together, then baking. But it also is the adaptability and flexibility of these recipes that have earned them such a coveted place in the home kitchen. They can be flavoured with nearly any combination of ingredients, from sweet all the way to savoury and spicy. They also can be baked in numerous styles — loaves large or small, as muffins, even simply as muffin tops (if you have the right pan). To help get you baking this fall, here are two basic quick bread base recipes; one savoury and one sweet. Each recipe includes suggested flavourings – easy ways to take a basic bread and turn it into so much more.

• 500 ml (2 cups) allpurpose flour • 50 ml (1/4 cup) cornmeal • 12 ml (2 1/2 tsp) baking powder • 5 ml (1 tsp) salt • 30 ml (2 tbsp) sugar • 250 ml (1 cup) sour cream • 45 ml (3 tbsp) melted butter • 2 eggs • 250 ml (1 cup) cooked, mashed potato (unseasoned) • Mix-ins (see fact box)

This recipe makes 1 loaf or 12 muffins.

For loaf, spread batter into prepared pan. Cook until a wooden skewer inserted at the centre comes out clean, 60 minutes. For muffins, spoon batter into prepared tins and bake 20 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes in pan, then turn out onto a cooling rack. Let loaf cool fully before cutting.EMILY RICHARDS IS A PROFESSIONAL

Whoever thought up raking leaves needs a good talking to. Not that I couldn’t use the exercise, it’s just that the whole exertion thing really detracts from the enjoyment of my favourite time of year. I love fall, and even though mid-November can be a bit dreary, this calm before the preChristmas storm is a perfect opportunity to light that first fire of the season and get comfy with a glass or two of red wine. When the weather outside starts to chill, reds — especially those with a good balance of tannin and bright berry fruit — make for fine imbibing with or without food. Find one with an accent of residual sugar and you’ve got a cocktail tipple that easily overshadows the appeal of a pint of ale or fancy mixed drink. One of the latest new wave wines that isn’t afraid to throw around a bit of sweetness is Apothic Red 2009 Winemaker’s Blend ($14.99 $17.48). Made by E & J Gallo, it’s a swirling mix of syrah, zinfandel and merlot that’s smooth and juicy with a finalé of big berry fruit.

Breast Fest 2011

Rethink Breast Cancer – a not-for-profit that provides support for young women whose lives have been affected by breast cancer — is hosting Breast Fest, a consortium of films and events that explore the spectrum of issues surrounding breast cancer. This annual festival — taking place at the ROM today through Sunday — seeks to empower women by repurposing traditional media in an interactive way.

107th Annual Santa Claus Parade

This Sunday marks yet another year for what is arguably the city’s favourite street extravaganza: the 107th Santa Claus Parade. Starting at Christie Pits and snaking through Hogtown to its final destination at the St. Lawrence Market, the annual parade will feature street performers, floats aplenty and of course, a merry ending with good ol’ Saint Nick.

Chef's Challenge

No Bull Burgers

FBI Pizza Opening

The 2011 Mirror Ball will transform the Royal York Hotel into a Vaudevillian paradise this Saturday night. Attendees will sip on a bevy of bevvies while being mesmerized by mind-reader Mysterion, contortionist Mercedes Chenard and a special performance by Lady Luck Productions. The Mirror Ball helps support the Look Good Feel Better and Facing Cancer Together programs.

An event we've been looking forward to ever since the first release we saw this summer, Chef's Challenge for a Cure brings together some of North America's top notch celeb chefs for two-days of epic culinary competitions. Last year, Chef's Challenge raised $1.1 million for Mount Sinai Hospital. Chef's Challenge takes over the MTCC November 26th and 27th.

Apparently the city's lust for haute patties has yet to reach its breaking point. No Bull Burgers promises fresh, local and organic burgers —sans bull, of course — to Corktown's bubbling food scene. While many will frequent for the traditional fare, don’t hesitate to try the delicious double grilled cheese burger. Find No Bull Burgers at 179 Parliament St.

Westenders rejoice! FBI (Full-Blooded Italian) Pizza is opening at 2336 Lake Shore Blvd. W. and is looking to change the face of Toronto's available-fordelivery pizza. In cahoots with Queen Margherita Pizza — one of the city's favourite authentic 'za destinations — FBI has toppings like porchetta, mortadella, and prosciutto. Molto bene!

Predators defenceman Ryan Suter celebrates with teammates after scoring against Maple Leafs goalie Ben Scrivens on Thursday.

Leafs off-key in Music City Toronto has now lost five of six Martin Erat scored two goals and Pekka Rinne made 38 saves Thursday to lead the Nashville Predators to a 4-1 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs. Nashville has won five of seven, while Toronto has dropped five of its last six. Ryan Suter and Matt Halischuk scored the other Nashville goals. JohnMichael Liles replied for Toronto.

Erat has two goals, Rinne makes 38 saves for Nashville 1-0 lead just 5:48 into the game with his fourth goal in four games. From the goal-line just to the right of the Toronto net, Mike Fisher sent the puck toward goalie Ben Scrivens. Erat got the puck, and beat Scrivens with a wrist shot to the short side. Liles tied it at 10:36 of the second. With the Maple Leafs on a power play and both

teams attempting to change lines, Liles picked up the puck at centre ice and drove into the Nashville zone on the right side. Liles beat Rinne with a wrist shot from the circle. Nashville regained the lead less than two minutes later when Suter’s shot from the left side through traffic beat a screened Scrivens.

Suter scored his fourth of the season, matching his total of each of the previous two seasons. Erat gave Nashville a 3-1 lead at 2:05 of the third, capitalizing on a cross-ice pass from Fisher with the Predators on a 2-on-1 break. Halischuk added an empty-net goal to seal the win.

Jays’ playoff odds improve Extra wild card will be added as soon as next year One more excuse for Blue Jays’ failure to compete since their two World Series wins nearly two decades ago just disappeared in a show of hands at the owners meeting in Milwaukee on Thursday afternoon. In a progressive and dramatic move, MLB owners have voted to add a second wild card to the mix as early as next year, taking away the Jays’ long-standing excuse of playing in the same division as the free-spending New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox. The exact format for the added wild-card play-in is yet to be determined. But the fact is that one of the 10

On the move Baseball owners unanimously approved the long-delayed sale of the Astros, a transaction that requires the team to move from the NL Central to the AL West in 2013.

teams that had missed the playoffs will now be stepping onto the October dance floor. The addition of a second wild-card in baseball had always been expected, but it was thought that it was only going to be implemented in 2013, tied to the Houston Astros’ ownership change and that franchise shifting

over to the AL, evening league memberships at 15 franchises apiece. At a private meeting with baseball writers at the All-Star Game in Phoenix this July, union chief Michael Wiener emphasized that the players were heavily in favour of adding one more team to the postseason mix but that they felt it would not be fair under the current format, because while 35.7 per cent of AL players would be making the playoffs, only 31.3 per cent of National Leaguers would. That major disagreement has been overcome by the fact that the leagues will be equal by 2013. TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

FIFA boss in hot water again Blatter faces outcry, calls to resign in ‘handshake’ racism feud With FIFA still reeling from corruption allegations, Sepp Blatter faced a sharp backlash and calls for his resignation Thursday following his comments downplaying the problem of racism in football. The FIFA president provoked outrage by suggesting in television interviews Wednesday that on-field racial abuse

could be settled by a handshake and quickly forgotten. Britain’s sports minister called Thursday for Blatter to go “for the sake of the game,” the European Union described his remedy for racism as “completely unacceptable” and the global players’ union said his comment was “a remarkable mistake.”

Former England and Manchester United striker Andrew Cole wrote in a newspaper column that Blatter was “clueless” and an “out-of-touch buffoon.” Blatter’s latest gaffe follows previous verbal missteps such as suggesting that women players should wear tighter shorts, and gay fans should refrain from having sex at the 2022 World

Cup in Qatar where homosexual acts are illegal. Blatter managed to further discredit FIFA just weeks after he won some praise for promising to confront allegations of financial wrongdoing by senior colleagues as part of wide-ranging reforms following damaging allegations of bribery, voterigging and ticket scams. The latest gaffe by the

HAROLD CUNNINGHAM/GETTY IMAGES

“I’m not saying about discrimination, but it’s foul language, it’s a foul play” SEPP BLATTER

75-year-old Swiss official sparked a furor in England, where authorities are investigating two allegations of racial abuse involving Liverpool and Chelsea players in Premier League games. “This is the latest episode that calls into question whether this man should be the head of world football,” British

Sports Minister Hugh Robertson said. “For the sake of the game, he should go.” Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand and Blatter then traded barbs on Twitter in an unusual exchange of views between a professional athlete and an international sports official. Ferdinand had led a growing chorus of disapproval from black players when he wrote Wednesday that Blatter’s views were “so condescending its almost laughable.” In Brussels, EU spokesman Dennis Abbott denounced Blatter’s view as “completely unacceptable.” “It is not OK to racially abuse someone on the sports field, shake hands at the end and say ‘That’s OK.’ It is not,” Abbott told The Associated Press.

Can Ticats pen feel-good Final chapter? DAVE CHIDLEY/THE CANADIAN PRESS

CFL EXTRA POINTS DAN TOTH

TORONTO@METRONEWS.CA

Ticats quarterbacks Kevin Glenn, left, and Quinton Porter warm up at practice in Hamilton on Thursday.

The Hamilton Tiger Cats can’t possibly pull off another upset like the one we witnessed last Sunday in Montreal, can they? Hamilton was the most schizophrenic team in the CFL this season, surprising even themselves by knocking off the two-time defending Grey Cup champs in the East semifinal. The trick now is to repeat the performance Sunday in a defensive battle in Winnipeg. The Ticats defence will need to get to Bombers quarterback Buck Pierce, find a way to stop Winnipeg’s running game, and create some turnovers. Is that asking too much?

The vaunted Bombers defence, which coined the term “Swaggerville” and incensed opponents across Canada this season, will have its hands full stopping Tiger-Cats back Avon Cobourne but has a track record to back up their boasts. The Blue Bomber defence allowed the fewest first downs, fewest offensive yards, tied for the lead with the most pass interceptions and posted the most quarterback sacks. Winnipeg’s three wins over Hamilton this season makes them a significant favourite in the East final, although the Tabbies proved in Montreal they can’t be taken lightly. Our pick: Winnipeg by 3 Eskimos vs. Lions: Jerome Messam’s absence from Sunday’s West final might say more about his contribution to the Edmonton Eskimos this season than if the exciting running back could play in this playoff

intends to re-sign marginally talented backup quarterback Steven Jyles as the Toronto Argos starter next season. The reality is Barker’s Argos are desperate for a proven winner on offence who can also sell tickets and Calgary QB Henry Burris is a perfect fit in both categories. At the same time, it’s hard to believe the Stampeders will punt the CFL’s 2010 Most Outstanding Player, but it comes down to a numbers game — the zeroes on Burris’s paycheque. At a reported $350,000$400,000 per season, Burris is easily the highest player on the Stamps and his departure will clear up at least $200,000 of cap space for 2012. With only one team in dire need of a QB, Calgary is handcuffed in a possible trade and Barker’s Bluff doesn’t improve their chances of getting fair market value.

showdown. Messam tore the meniscus in his left knee in last weekend's win over Calgary and is out for the season, possibly killing the Esks’ chances of upsetting the heavily favoured B.C. Lions. Messam quieted his many critics this season by becoming the first Canadian in more than a decade to rush for 1,000 yards and his loss is an obvious blow to the Eskimos’ chances. Backups Calvin McCarty and Hugh Charles don’t have Messam’s running ability. Messam kept defences honest, buying time for Eskimos quarterback Ricky Ray to get the passing game in gear, which is still the key to Edmonton’s offence. Our pick: B.C. by 6 Jyles not top of list in Argos’ QB plans: Jim Barker is wearing his best poker face, but he’s not fooling anyone. Barker is telling everyone who’ll listen that he
