A winter without the deep freeze — or so says Rob Weather website watches the skies from Charleswood Creator takes his work home with him SHANE GIBSON

4th warmest on record

@METRONEWS.CA

Work began Thursday on the demolition of the former A&B Sound building at the corner of Portage Avenue and Donald Street. Demolition is expected to take four to six weeks and crews will also take down the Wild Planet building and part of the Mitchell Copp building over the coming months. SHANE GIBSON/METRO

Before the tower rises...

Once the buildings are leveled work will begin on building the foundation for Longboat Development Corporation’s mixeduse tower, 311 Portage Avenue at Centrepoint and the Groupe Germains’s ALT Hotel. The 200,000-square-foot project will incorporate a new 20-storey tower.

While it may come as a surprise to hear it’s been the fourth warmest winter on record and the mercury hasn’t dipped below -30 C in Winnipeg this winter, it’s old news for the creator of a privately run Winnipeg weather website. Rob’s Obs, short for Rob’s Observations, is updated with live weather data collected from a high-end weather station in the creator’s backyard every five minutes. Rob admits to being a bit of a weather-junkie. “It is part job, part hobby, and part passion for me,” said Rob, who has worked as a meteorologist with Environment Canada

for 26 years, and asked to remain anonymous. “I’ve always been interested in meteorology as far back as when I was a teenager.” Rob started the website as a hobby in 2001 after buying and installing a weather station at his Charleswood home that can automatically upload data to his website. “I started it up to provide a little more information than you might find elsewhere,” explained Rob. “It’s a more interactive way

of keeping on top of the weather.” The site provides up-to-theminute temperature, wind, precipitation, and humidity information as well as forecasts, radar, and satellite imagery. What started as a way of mixing business with pleasure for the creator has morphed into something much larger — his site averages 200 hits per day, but has seen as many as 1,000 on days when severe weather strikes. To keep up with the demand Rob has also set up a blog and a Twitter account, and laughs when asked if his weather knowledge makes him better at small talk than the rest of us. “Or most boring, depending on your point of view,” he said.

Make bullying a crime: Manitobans The power of pink just got stronger. A new Angus Reid poll released Wednesday shows a majority of Manitobans think bullying should be a crime. Fifty-eight per cent of those polled in Manitoba and Saskatchewan said they believe bullying should be a crime, even with no physical violence. Across Canada, the on-

line survey of 1,006 Canadian adults found that 65 per cent of respondents believe bullying should be considered a criminal activity. The results were released on National Pink Shirt Day, a campaign that encourages students to wear something pink to show they don’t tolerate bullying. Bullying itself is not an offence under the Criminal Code, but behaviours asso-

ciated with it, such as harassment, mischief, theft and uttering threats, can lead to criminal charges. The poll also found there’s overwhelming support for legislation against cyber-bullying, with nine in 10 Canadians saying they would like to see a law enacted in their own province similar to one proposed in the U.S. that would make it illegal to use electronic

means to “coerce, intimidate, harass or cause other substantial emotional distress.” A large proportion of Canadians believe high school (94 per cent) is the worst environment for bullying, followed by elementary school (88 per cent) and college and university (43 per cent), the report found.

Poor score for Disraeli Bridge Report rated bridge a 3 out of 10 one month before a woman plunged to her death in her SUV ELISHA DACEY

@METRONEWS.CA

A report obtained by Global Winnipeg says the guard rails on the Disraeli Bridge were found to be in “poor” condition a month before a young Winnipeg woman plunged to her death in her SUV. On Jan. 19, Kaitlyn Fraser, 19, lost control of her SUV and hit the rail on the Disraeli Bridge as she travelled northbound. The SUV smashed through the rail, teetered on the edge of the bridge for a moment then fell to the river below. The SUV hit the ice surface of the Red River. Fraser later died in hospital. City officials said afterwards the rails had been deemed safe in an inspection done a month earlier. Global Winnipeg obtained

the report through an access to information request. A City of Winnipeg spokesperson confirmed the report states the guardrail, sidewalk, curb and pedestrian rail were all rated as poor and given a safety rating of three out of 10. One means immediate action is needed, while a two rating means critical condition. City officials said the railing was still safe, although admitted if it had garnered a two rating, the bridge would have been shut down. The Disraeli bridge is currently being replaced as the city has determined it has reached the end of its lifespan. For more local news visit metronews.ca/ winnipeg

Man says doctors operated on wrong leg

WEEKEND, MARCH 2-4, 2012

Chemicals. Unearthed A fire at Eastside Collision on Marion Avenue at 5:30 a.m. Thursday unearthed potential explosive chemicals.

Rick Campbell says he hasn’t been able to return to work and feels the procedure has left him disabled A Manitoba man says he went into a Winnipeg hospital hoping to improve his mobility but left barely able to walk. Rick Campbell of Clandeboye, Man., says he had surgery on a torn Achilles tendon at Seven Oaks Hospital last March. But he says they operated on the wrong leg. A year later, Campbell says he still hasn’t been able to return to work and feels the mistake has left him disabled. He says he didn’t come forward earlier because he didn’t want anything to affect his treatment, but says he’s going public now after learning of other medical issues at the same hospital. A critical review is un-

derway at Seven Oaks after a Winnipeg woman was sent home following a series of tests, later collapsed on her front porch and couldn’t be revived. The woman’s daughter is calling for answers regarding what happened. But Campbell says he has no faith those answers will come. “They’re going to call her in after they do the investi-

gation and tell her this is what we found and this is what we’re going to do to change it and nothing is going to change,” he says. The Winnipeg Regional Health Authority said patients have the right to know right away when an error was made. “We have a responsibility to disclose all information, all known facts, what we learned, what the recommendations are and what are we going to change, arising from that particular situation,” said spokesman Real Cloutier.

Derailed VIA train had been doing almost 108 km/h Switch under investigation requires slowing to 24 km/h A passenger train that derailed while switching tracks — killing three engineers and injuring 45 passengers — was travelling at almost 108 km/h when it derailed west of Toronto on Sunday, says The Transportation Safety Board. The speed limit while changing tracks at that particular switch is 24 kilometres. “While we know the excess speed caused the derailment, this is not the end of the investigation,” lead investigator Tom Griffith said Thursday. “It’s only the beginning. “We need to figure out why. We need to understand the environment in which the crew was oper-

ating and why they made the decisions they did.” Griffith said the train’s black box also shows the brakes were not applied before the crash. When asked if track signals to alert the crew were working, Griffith replied: “Were the signals 100 per cent? We don’t know that right now.” He said there’s no indication the signals were malfunctioning, adding he doesn’t know why the brakes weren’t applied, or why the speed was so high. Two of the engineers, Peter Snarr, 52, and Ken Simmonds, 56, both of Toronto, were experienced drivers, each with more than 30 years in the industry. A trainee, Patrick

Teen seriously hurt in car-surfing stunt A car-surfing incident has left a 19-year-old Ontario man with life-threatening head injuries and the driver facing criminal charges. Police say the man was standing on the hood of a Toyota as it drove down a street in Ajax, just east of Toronto, on Wednesday night. Witnesses tell police

the car braked, sending the man flying off the hood to the asphalt. He’s in a trauma unit at a Toronto hospital. The 19-year-old man police say was the driver Ali Malik, is charged with dangerous driving and dangerous driving causing bodily harm. THE CANADIAN PRESS

“We had three experienced people at the front of that train. Why were they doing that? That’s what we have to find out.” TOM GRIFFITH, LEAD INVESTIGATOR

Robinson, 40, of Cornwall, Ont., joined them in the cab to observe. The switch involved requires the train to slow to 24 kilometres instead of the usual 72 kilometres. THE CANADIAN PRESS

And he tweeted again after a crash late in the race. He may not have won Daytona, but he tripled his number of followers, going from 65K to 200K.

Ginger Ale on plane: It might well be because people associate it with treating motion sickness (it settles the stomach), but have you ever noticed that basically 50 per cent of people on a plane order ginger ale? Outside a plane, you rarely see someone order it. Unless it’s with rye. Tall observation to finish your week. Follow Neil Morton on Twitter (@neilmorton).

A cook that plays with his food Emile Picard samples some fresh maple syrup poured on snow at the Au Pieds de Cochon sugar shack Thursday in StBenoit-de-Mirabel, Que., but don’t tell the folks at this Ottawa winter festival about Martin Picard’s latest creation. If organizers forbade him from serving foie gras at last year’s event because of a backlash by animal-

rights activists that prompted him to cancel his appearance altogether, it’s unlikely he’d be invited back to cook his new dish, named “Confederation Beaver” — that is, the bucktoothed national emblem stuffed with its own tail in a slow-cooked sauce of cream and pig’s blood. The second cookbook from the celebrity Montreal chef emphasizes a philosophy of cuisine that made him a hero to like-minded foodies. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Sugar Shack RYAN REMIORZ/THE CANADIAN PRESS

A lobster and smokedmeat omelette is one of the featured menu items at the Au Pieds de Cochon sugar shack.

A must-read The cookbook has a section with lessons such as how to skin the fur from forest rodents and how to braise a beaver’s tail until it’s suitable for stuffing. It also contains an illustrated history of sugar shacks filled with anecdotes, a guide to producing maple syrup, a story envisioning a postapocalyptic world where all that’s left is the sugar shack, and more.

Synopsis

2

In this adaptation of Dr. Seuss’s most serious book, 12-year-old Ted (voice of Zac Efron), hopes to impress a girl (Taylor Swift) by giving her a tree. You see, she’s never seen a real one because they live in Thneedville, a town where everything is fake. Even the trees are battery operated. His search for the tree leads him to the Once-ler (Ed Helms), the keeper of the last tree seed, who tells him about The Lorax (Danny DeVito) and why all the trees disappeared. Ratings: Richard: 11 1⁄2 Mark: 111

RICHARD CROUSE & MARK BRESLIN

scene Scene in brief

Kids will like the cute creatures in The Lorax.

One for the trees The Lorax is light on plot, but still carries the strong pro-environmental overtones that made the Dr. Seuss story controversial Richard: Mark, by and large, I liked The Lorax. It has some good characters, a strong central message for kids (particularly if they are interested in gardening) and some good laughs, but I left the theatre with the unshakeable feeling that It would have made a better short film. At 70 pages, the book doesn’t quite offer up enough to fill out a feature length movie. It felt padded and not quite what the Dr. Seuss ordered. You? MB: It wasn’t the padding that bothered me as much as the hectoring tone of its pro-environmental, anti-

entrepreneurial message. Finally, a film for the whole Socialist family! But the great eye candy and production numbers puts this kid flick in the plus column for me. Surely you liked the chorus of singing goldfish? RC: The goldfish are part Andrews Sisters, part Greek Chorus and are the best thing in the movie. Loved them, and I liked much of the movie, but it just didn’t feel Suessy or Seussian, or whatever the word would be, enough. Kids will like the cute creatures and the Lorax’s giant orange handlebar ‘stache, but for me it was too fre-

netic to be considered a faithful translation of a Seuss book. MB: I never read the book so I had no expectations. I guess the obvious thing that’s missing is Seuss’ trademark rhyming dialogue. But I thought the movie was true to his visual style. And I was grateful that it was animated rather than those horrible live action Seuss adaptations using over-caffeinated comedians. RC: Tell me about it. The best Seuss adaptation starred horror legend Boris Karloff! The Grinch Who

Stole Christmas is the benchmark; it really brings the good doctor’s characters to life. The Lorax, for all its charms, doesn’t really feel like Dr. Seuss. It just doesn’t feel green-eggs-andhammy, or in non-Seuss terms, magical enough. Do you think kids will like it? Will they get the ‘save the planet’ message? MB: I think it’s aimed at kids four to nine. The message is so explicit it would be hard to miss. Parents can enjoy it for the visual imagery and pop culture jokes. But it doesn’t have the depth of a Pixar film or classic Disney.

The Hunger Games author Suzanne Collins has given a big thumbs up to the upcoming film version of her millionselling dystopian novel. In a message that appeared Thursday on the Facebook page of The Hunger Games, Collins wrote that she was “really happy” with the movie. She praised director Gary Ross for remaining faithful to the book. The film will be released March 23. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Kitsch keeps grounded

Movie reviews

Actor Taylor Kitsch has a big year ahead with lead roles in two major films, including John Carter Why he tries to stay out of Hollywood HANDOUT

Project X Genre: Comedy Director: Nima Nourizadeh Stars: Thomas Mann, Oliver Cooper, Jonathan Daniel Brown 11

John Carter hits theatres next Friday.

and a house to finish.

NED EHRBAR

SCENE@METRONEWS.CA METRO WORLD NEWS IN HOLLYWOOD

Your face basically is the marketing campaign for John Carter.

Taylor Kitsch is well aware that a lot is riding on 2012 for him, career-wise. With lead roles in a pair of presumed blockbusters — this month’s John Carter followed by Battleship in May — and Oliver Stone’s Savages later this year, Kitsch is set to have his status in Hollywood solidified one way or the other. But he has other things on his mind —

Yeah, yeah. I mean, that is something you never, ever get used to. I think it really is a once-in-a-lifetime kind of year for me coming up with these three films. It’s insane. I think it’s also a cool moment just to have within yourself, like it’s really come full-circle for the most part through the struggle or whatever it was to get to this point.

You’ve referred to living in Austin as “staying out of the s---” and avoiding the trappings of Hollywood. How do you manage that?

I think because of having a later start and knowing who I am and being grounded within myself, I don’t need that to be validated. That’s a big thing for me, and I truly am in it for just the work. Even at the beginning, people were like, “Maybe you should go to this party to meet this guy,” and I never wanted to or never will get a job that way — to schmooze, to do this and that. I’ll get it through my work. That’s the way I am, and Austin is just an amazing escape. And being Canadian doesn’t hurt, right?

Yeah, my Canadian upbringing, man. My mom raised us three boys by herself. To say the least, we didn’t have a lot of money. And it’s the core

Ghosts of franchises past Before John Carter and Battleship, Taylor Kitsch made a leap into big-budget franchises by playing Gambit in 2009’s Wolvernine. There was talk before the film’s release of jumping into a Gambit spin-off film. After the release, not so much. So what happened? “I think it was just really s----- in the sense of it being put out there before it was ready,” Kitsch says of Wolverine and the reception it received. “I don’t know if they ever came back from that kind of buzz, which is just an unfair thing.”

things that truly matter at the end of the day anyways, so to be in front of all that stuff, you’re able to laugh at it rather than need it. That’s the difference.

Costa, Thomas and JB are three nerdy high school kids who, like every other high school kid in every other high school movie, decide to throw a house party that will get them noticed and attract otherwise unattainable ladies. Thomas (Mann), whose parents are out of town for the weekend, wants to throw himself a birthday bash that will be “big enough to be cool.” He figures 50 people maximum should do the trick. But his foul-mouthed

We Need to Talk About Kevin Genre: Drama Director: Lynne Ramsay Stars: Tilda Swinton, John C. Reilly, Ezra Miller 111

Kevin (Miller) has had severe emotional problems all his life. He’s cruel, manipulative, rebellious, apparently consumed with hatred targeted at his sister and mother Eva (Swinton). But her husband (Reilly) loves the boy and can’t accept her reports of him forcing a pet hamster down the sink food crusher, or injuring his baby sister

friend, Costa (Cooper, who makes Jonah Hill in Superbad look saintly), has other plans. He spreads the word through every medium possible — including Craigslist — and suddenly this cool-but-manageable party gets absolutely out of control (think the nights the Hangover guys can’t remember, but with more drinking, drugs and damage).Though you’ve probably heard all the jokes before in any number of the teen party movies that have come before it, you’ve never really seen a party like this one. Project X, after all, tells the story of “the most epic high school party ever.” REGAN REID

or masturbating in front of her. Eva is completely isolated and ruled by Kevin. One day, she’s proven right when he commits an unthinkable crime. A new kind of suffering begins as the vigilantes and hatemongers show up. Ramsay’s raw family portrait focuses on the natural born bully, his power and asks how he came to be. Swinton is transcendent, as always, and her fragile/strong duality is put to good use, but Miller is amazing. ANNE BRODIE

MUSIC RELEASES FOR SPRING SOUND CHECK

ALAN CROSS SCENE @METRONEWS.CA

Now that spring is within sight, plans are well underway when it comes to some major releases that will be with us well into the fall and toward Christmas. And there are some big names on this list. Bruce Springsteen and The E-Street Band/Wrecking Ball (Tuesday)

The Boss’ 17th studio album is an angry affair, a protest against the things and the people that brought about The Great Recession on America. Springsteen says that the record has a lot in common with 1982’s Nebraska. Meat Loaf/Hell in a Hand-

basket (Mar. 13)

Yes, Mr. Aday is back, although fans know that this record was released in Australia back in the fall. Co-writers on the record include Dave Kurshner (Velvet Revolver) and Canada’s Tom Cochrane. Chris Brown/Fortune (Mar. 16)

Despite a heavy effort to rehabilitate his image after the Rihanna incident, things haven’t been going all that well. What will the marketplace say when his fifth album comes out in a couple of weeks? Adam Lambert/Trespassing (Mar. 20)

Second album from the American Idol dude just before he goes on the road as the new lead singer for Queen this summer. Madonna/MDNA (Mar. 27)

WEEKEND, MARCH 2-4, 2012

It’s hoping that Madge will give the industry a big boost with a world tour and this new album. However, Give Me All Your Luvin’ has, shall we say, been something of a disappointment big boost with a world tour and this new album. However, Give Me All Your Luvin’ has, shall we say, been something of a disappointment for her and Interscope, her new label. Was that a stumble out of the gate or the portent of something more dire?

get the Grammy performance, either. Bonnie Raitt/Slipstream (Apr. 10)

Ms Raitt’s 16th album and her first since 2005. Will she have her first gold album in a decade? Train/California 37 (Apr. 17)

The Drops of Jupiter/Calling All Angels band from San Francisco return after three years hoping for more American Music Awards and Grammy nominations like they got last time. Jack White/Blunderbuss (Apr. 24)

After an entire career of working within bands (White Stripes, Raconteurs, Dead Weather) or working behind the scenes with older stars (Loretta Lynn, Wanda Jackson, Tom Jones), Jack is finally putting his own name front-and-centre. He’s off to a great start with the first single, Love Interruption.

Chris Brown’s new album Fortune is slated for release on Mar. 16. With all the attempts to remake his image it will be interesting to see how his latest effort does.

Happy birthday indeed, Bieber

Seems like just yesterday he was a fresh-faced kid singing his heart out on YouTube Justin celebrates his 18th year by spending big money ALL PHOTOS GETTY IMAGES

DOROTHY ROBINSON SCENE@METRONEWS.CA

Happy birthday indeed, Bieber. When you’re the most famous 18-year-old in the world, cake ain’t cutting it. No, Justin Bieber had a much better Thursday than you did. Let’s start with the gifts. On Wednesday, Bieber’s manager stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show to surprise him with a Fisker Karma — that’s an eco-friendly sports car for all of you

Kia drivers — estimated to be worth at least $100,000. As for himself, Bieber is looking to buy two L.A.area mansions priced between six and eight million dollars, according to TMZ. Yesterday, we can only assume that he drove his new car to scope out his potential new Hollywood pads — when he wasn’t parachuting or hitting up his dinner party, that is. Justin! The whole point of being 18 is that you don’t yet need to buy things to make you happy. Have fun, kid, but we hope you have some serious funds set aside for 28. MONICA WEYMOUTH/ DOROTHY

Turn out dough into bowl and knead lightly into a smooth dough. Shape into flat square. On sheet of parchment paper with a floured rolling pin, roll out to a 9inch (23 cm) square, about 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick. Slide onto a baking sheet and refrigerate 20 mins or until cold. Using knife, cut square into 8 equal strips. On diagonal, make seven cuts along each strip, about 1 inch (2.5 cm) apart, into 56 diamonds (there will be triangles at the ends of the strips – either press together into diamonds or bake as triangles).

I’m glad you can’t tell a wine by its label. If you could, there’d be an awful lot of boring juice on the shelves. You can blame the trend in ho-hum bottle bling on the critter label backlash a few years back. Once customers got sick of cartoon animals on their wine bottles, marketers couldn’t sink the ark fast enough and set sail on the good ship mundane. Argentina and South Africa are major offenders. Their sections look like wallpaper with one cookie cutter label after another. I have a place in my heart for any winery that shows as much inventiveness outside the bottle as it does in. The People’s 2010 Pinot Noir ($16.95 - $19.99) from New Zealand wins on both fronts. Designed by kiwi artist Martin Poppelwell, its label font has an urban vibe reminiscent of a bistro’s chalkboard wine list. The liquid has a hip, bright flavour that oozes plump strawberry and subtle tannins, which pairs well with roast poultry and lighter meat dishes. PRICES RFLECT THE RANGE ACROSS

JOHN WOODS/THE CANADIAN PRESS

Return to Ottawa just one challenge for CFL’s top dog Mark Cohon’s second tour of duty as CFL commissioner looks to be a busy one. Last month, Cohon signed a three-year extension to continue on the job he assumed in 2007 when he succeeded Tom Wright. Cohon has helped bring stability to the league but there is plenty more to do. This year’s Grey Cup at Toronto’s Rogers Centre marks the 100th anniversary of the CFL’s championship game. Once that’s done, there will be negotiations on a new television deal — the present one with TSN expires after the 2013 season. And in 2014, Cohon hopes the league will be back in Ottawa with an expansion franchise kicking off its return in a new Frank Clair Stadium. The 45-year-old Cohon says he still loves the challenge. “It’s work that in the end you know you’re really making an impact, a difference, not even just for the teams and the players but also the country,” Cohon said in an interview. “And that’s when you wake up and say, ‘Hey, I have a job that really matters,’ and that’s why I like it.” THE CANADIAN PRESS

Evander Kane scores on Florida Panthers goaltender Jose Theodore on Thursday night.

Quoted

Kane leads Jets in rout of Panthers Scores two goals, adds two assists in big win over division rival Evander Kane scored twice and added two assists as the Winnipeg Jets routed the Florida Panthers 7-0 on Thursday. Ondrej Pavelec made 33 saves to earn his fourth shutout this season for Winnipeg (31-27-8), while Kyle Wellwood and Blake Wheeler both had a goal and an assist. Jim Slater, Bryan Little and Nik Antropov also scored. Jose Theodore made 20 saves on 24 shots in the start for Florida (30-21-12), which had a three-game winning streak snapped. He was pulled after Little’s goal made it 4-0 at the 4:35 mark of the third period. Scott

behind the division-leading Panthers and one point ahead of idle Washington. Florida, which sits third in the Eastern Conference, has three games in hand on the Jets, as does Washington, which next plays Friday at home against New Jersey. Little’s goal at 4:35 of the third came on a rare fiveon-one, with Florida defenceman Erik Gudbranson the lone man back. Jets defenceman Randy Jones sent a short pass to Wheeler, who passed the puck across the net to Little and he popped it in over Theodore. The fans stood and gave

the players a standing ovation for the rare attack. Kane is on a career-best eight-game points streak with seven goals and seven assists. The crowd started chanting “We want perfect” as they cheered for a shutout. Wheeler netted the game’s final marker at 17:58 as Winnipeg tied a franchise record for singleperiod goals with five in the third. Florida has won three of five meetings with the Jets this season. They play once more in Florida. Winnipeg is now (4-1-2) in an eight-game homestand. THE CANADIAN PRESS
