Arrest made following multiple homicide Investigation. Police tight-lipped about number of victims, motive for killing JOE LOFARO

A multiple homicide rocked a quiet Aylmer neighbourhood Thursday when a grisly discovery was made in a home on Rue Felix-Leclerc. Const. Pierre Lanthier said police received a 911 call at 1:15 p.m. and responded to 64 Rue FelixLeclerc. At the crime scene, he said “some” bodies were found, but didn’t disclose how many because the next of kin had not been notified. Neighbours said the

home used to be operated as a bed and breakfast, Neighbours told CBC News that a couple lived there with their daughter, her boyfriend and a young child. Police have one man in custody in relation to the major-crime investigation, but they did not release his identity or his age or whether he had any relationship with the victims. The investigation also led police to a second site at the Rivermead Golf Club, which is behind the home where the victims were found. There, police found an abandoned minivan. More details of the investigation are expected by Friday, Lanthier said. Follow Joe Lofaro on Twitter @giuseppelo

Staff did nothing wrong in ticketing students, says OC Transpo official Student complaints. Failure to fill out ID numbers led to $150 fine, race not involved: OC Transpo official GRAHAM LANKTREE

OC Transpo fare inspectors did nothing wrong in ticketing U-Pass-using student Michael Shembo Wednesday, said James Babe, program manager and chief special constable of the transit service’s transit safety and enforcement branch. And a second person who came forward complaining of mistreatment Thursday is also in the wrong, he said. Carleton University computer-science student Rebecca Zhou said that she was unfairly ticketed $150 and had her $75 bus pass confiscated by an OC Transpo fare inspector Wednesday morning. “The officer said my UPass had expired,” said Zhou. “When I purchased my May pass, I took the U-Pass to OC Transpo at the Rideau Centre

and asked if I can use it as ID and they said yes.” OC Transpo’s website says that students can buy a discounted OC Transpo monthly pass from May through August and use their U-Pass as photo ID. “She presented her U-Pass with a May student voucher,” said Babe, “but she was using an expired U-Pass that was valid until April 30, 2011. So that’s why she got the ticket. What happened at the Rideau Centre is that they probably just took a quick look at the pass and gave the OK.” As for Shembo, Babe said that he presented a monthly pass without any of the UPass ID numbers filled in. “In both these cases fare inspectors were doing their job properly,” Babe said. Shembo also received a $150 fine and has his passes confiscated. Babe denied Shembo’s suggestion that racial profiling played any role in the incident. “All our officers and constables get what we used to call race and ethnicity training,” Babe said.

Demonstrators blocked access to University of Ottawa administration offices Thursday morning, protesting a 4.3 per cent increase in tuition fees approved by the school’s board of governors in April. The protest was also an act of solidarity with Quebec students, demonstrators said. Campus security allowed the protesters to stay on the second floor of Tabaret Hall, but asked them not to use furniture in their barricade — a response protest spokes-

person Nicole Desnoyers called “reasonable.” The university has not yet fully adopted a budget for the upcoming year, and the students protesting the increase were hoping for a reversal in the decision if the budget is adopted at a meeting scheduled for Monday. University spokesperson Caroline Milliard said the tuition increase of 4.3 per cent is slightly lower than the five per cent recommended by the provincial government. “It’s also important for us to mention that 30 per

cent of the tuition increase is directed at financial aid and bursaries; that counterbalances the raise a little bit,” Milliard said. The university allowed the protest to continue because the students have a right to voice their views and they conducted themselves appropriately, Milliard said. While some people, including school president Allan Rock, were prevented from accessing their offices, they were able to get their work done elsewhere, she said. JESSICA SMITH/METRO

Who but Ottawa’s organ-donation champion Hélène Campbell could get highly trained doctors to dance in their lab coats for all the world to see? Campbell met media Thursday at the University Health Network in Toronto to tell the public about her recovery six weeks after her double-lung transplant. The press conference came one day after Campbell was presented with the Diamond Jubilee Medal by Canada’s Prime Minister Stephen Harper and his wife, Laureen.

Campbell has become Canada’s most recognized advocate for organ and tissue donation, after her attempts to boost registration rates hit the big leagues with celebrity endorsements from Justin Bieber and Ellen DeGeneres. Last fall she was diagnosed with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, which can only be treated with a lung transplant. “Look at me now. I can get up and show you my dance move if you like,” she said. “But only if you join me.” Campbell, her parents, transplant-program director Gary Levy and thoracic surgeon Shaf Keshavjee stood and wiggled their hips and arms on live TV. Campbell plans to return to school and continue her campaign, making her signature move the dance of organ donation. She also plans to make a commercial based on videos people sent to her of the dance. Her activism has led to a

spike in organ donations not only in Ontario, but as far away as Louisiana and Australia, said her father Alan Campbell. “We get messages almost daily from people who say, ‘I signed up,’” he said. Her doctors say more needs to be done. “People are upstairs in this hospital and across the country waiting for organs. Over the past five years 600 people have died who thought they were going to get organs,” said Levy. “I consider them casualties of the system we have. I’m hoping by working together, we can improve the system.” To register as an organ donor, go to

Mischievous ‘Elphin’ T-shirt could spin off others, artist says Logo mania. Even Elphin apartment owners ordered shirts Graham Lanktree

Artist Andrew King wants to bring other distinctive Ottawa logos to a T-shirt near you after selling out of two runs featuring the illustration of a pixie from the Elphin apartments on Metcalfe Street. “I’ve been getting emails from people saying they have fond memories of seeing the elf when living in Centretown,” Highway 417 accident

Police identify crash victim Police have identified a Kanata man as the driver of a jeep involved in a fatal single-vehicle crash on Highway 417 this week. Police say Dean Lambert, 42, was killed when his car rolled over as he was headed onto the 417 from the 416 shortly after 6 p.m. on Tuesday. “The cause of the collision was, basically, going too fast for the ramp,” OPP Const. Rheal Levac said. Ontario Provincial Police are continuing their investigation and asking anyone with information about the accident to contact Const. Armit at 613-270-9171. JESSICA SMITH/metro

King said. “If you live in Ottawa, you know that elf if you’ve been stuck at the stoplight there. People seem to have this connection to it.” After a first run of 20 shirts and a second run of 50 sold out, King said he’s keen to tackle other Ottawa landmarks. “I’m going to do Ottawa-themed shirts that only people from Ottawa would recognize.” The old font from Ottawa’s City Centre building could be among the series, he said, as well as the Civic Pharmacy sign at Holland and Carling avenues, and the sign outside Mellos restaurant in the Byward Market. King said that after finishing an upcoming art show he wants to sit down and pinpoint

five designs to make into shirts. “I don’t want to infringe on anyone’s copyright. I make $2 on these shirts, but people are proud of their city and want to show it off. “We’re all in the city together and pass by these things without talking about it with anyone else,” he said. “I’m just thankful that people share the same feelings as me. Who knew other people would want an Elphin shirt?” King says a third run of Elphin shirts will be available at Art in the Park in The Glebe running June 2-3.

ACORN. Group demands more social assistance in face of rising food costs Members of the Ottawa branch of ACORN — the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now — protested outside the Food Basics on Merivale Road on Thursday to demand Premier Dalton McGuinty improve social assistance. Lana Bogart of Ottawa said the price of food has been constantly rising over the years, while her social assistance funds have remained stagnant. “If they raise the rates, it would probably help people (get) jobs,” Bogart said. The group said the one per cent increase in socialassistance rates from McGuinty’s government is not enough. joe lofaro/metro

NCC seeks public input on new bridge Inter-provincial route. National Capital Commission proposes three alternative designs for evaluation Graham Lanktree

Consultants Christopher Gordon and Raynald Ledoux of Roche-Genivar estimate 5,800 trucks could be using the new bridge annually by 2031. GRAHAM LANKTREE/METRO

The National Capital Commission called on Ottawans Thursday to weigh in on plans for a new inter-provincial bridge that would ease traffic at the corner of King Edward and Rideau Streets. The NCC is proposing three different potential sites and will hold meetings in June so residents can evaluate each one. Two sites are proposed for the east end near Lower Duck Island and the Aviation Park-

way, while the third design would bisect Kettle Island in the west end. “The community has often expressed its desire to move large trucks from the downtown core,” said engineer Christopher Gordon, director of transportation planning and traffic with Roche-Genivar, who is consulting on the project. “We have had 18 meetings with residents and stakeholders and confirmed with the general public that these are the corridors that will be analyzed.”

During these meetings, community groups near potential sites have said the new bridge is a formula for snarled traffic in their community. The NCC presented the plans on its website Thursday. They say the new bridge will lighten traffic created by the 2,700 trucks that travel through the Kind Edward and Rideau Street intersection annually. By 2031, Roche-Genivar pre­ dicts 5,800 trucks will use the new bridge every year. “If we have one comment from a community and several from another community,” he said, “we will consider them equally. It’s not a numbers game, but based on the concerns expressed.” Follow Graham Lanktree on Twitter @MetroGraham

Alleged thief found snoozing at scene

Jailed woman left lying in urine, review finds

Chatham-Kent police made an easy arrest after a man allegedly broke into a building, stole a ring and fell asleep before he could make his escape. Officers responded to a break-and-enter around 10:30 a.m. Wednesday when the owner found a 19-year-old man sleeping inside the building on Wallace Street in Wallaceburg. According to police, the man forced his way into the building from the back door, causing about $50 in damage, and another $50 from cutting the alarm-system wires. After searching the man, police found a gold ring that was stolen from a jewelry box in the building and a bag of suspected cocaine. He’s been charged with break and enter, mischief under $5,000, theft under $5,000, possession of property under $5,000 obtained by a crime and drug possession.

A Nova Scotia woman who was jailed for public intoxication and later died following a stroke was left lying on the cement floor of the lockup for four hours in her own urine, a review of the Truro, N.S., police’s handling of the incident has concluded. The investigation found that Truro police did not properly monitor Victoria Rose Paul’s health while she was in custody three years ago. the canadian press

CP Rail customers look for alternatives during strike Day 2. Oil, fertilizer, potash among industries affected by Teamsters’ walkout Companies that rely on Canadian Pacific Railway to move their products across the country were looking at their alternatives on Day 2 of a walkout by 4,800 employees. CP suspended all freight shipments in Canada — affecting oil, coal, automotive, fertilizer and lumber industries, among others — after workers represented by the Teamsters Canada Rail Conference went on strike early Wednesday. Cenovus Energy Inc. moves about 2,000 barrels of oil per day by rail from its Bakken fields in Saskatchewan. That’s not a lot for a company that produced 156,850 barrels per day during its most recent quarter. Still, the oil company says it has felt a hit due to the CP strike. “We have been affected,”

spokeswoman Jessica Wilkinson said Thursday. “In the meantime, we’re looking to secure pipeline capacity to move that oil and we’re confident we’re going to get the pipeline capacity.” Other industries aren’t as fortunate when it comes to having a Plan B. Fertilizer producers have few, if any, fallback options, said transportation consultant Tom Maville, who works with the Canadian Fertilizer Institute. Last year 28 million tonnes of fertilizer were produced in Canada, most of which was transported to market by rail. Of that, about eight million tonnes of potash moved from 10 mines in Saskatchewan to the Port of Vancouver along Canadian Pacific’s tracks. Potash trains can stretch more than two kilometres in length. It would take two and a half trucks to move what a single railcar can, said Maville. “You’d need thousands of trucks, and they’d have to be specialized. They’re just not

there.” Maville said there’s limited storage capacity at the potash mines and at the ports, especially since it’s the height of Canada’s growing season. “In very short time there’s going to be nowhere to put

the product, which means you shut down mines, you close down plants and you lay off people,” he said. “That is a worst-case scenario, but that is the reality of what could happen here.” the canadian press

Funding student groups. Financing laws must be followed, province says Quebec’s striking student organizations have been warned to respect provincial election laws if they want to make good on their promise to help defeat Jean Charest’s Liberal government. The student groups, which have received considerable funding from unions inside and outside the province, have been told they will need to abide by laws that set strict limits on contributions. The warning from Quebec’s elections watchdog was prompted by a recent public pledge from the major student associations to launch an offensive against the governing Liberals in the next election. Crisis mode

The Canadian Press reported this week that tens of thousands of dollars in donations have already been shipped to student activists from unions outside and inside the province and, as the conflict drags on, new financial contributions are pouring in. THE CANADIAN PRESS Rules


Quebec law sets strict rules, including a $1,000 maximum for individual donations, limits on what a candidate can spend, and rules for calculating the value of goods and services provided.

Mass roundup of students triggers new attempt at talks Montreal rally.

The provincial education minister said Thursday that she expected to hold a “very, very important” meeting with student groups, likely early next week, after having had positive discussions over the phone.

Iran talks break off with pledge to resume in mid-June Nuclear program. International Atomic Energy Agency to sign a deal with Middle East nation in near future to probe nuclear work Tough negotiations between Iran and world powers over Tehran’s nuclear program ended Thursday with a plan to meet next month for another round of talks but agreement on little else.

breakthrough on international concerns about the Islamic Republic’s ability to build atomic weapons. The announcement capped two days of negotiations in Baghdad, where at times it appeared Tehran would withdraw from the talks. Meanwhile, Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency, IAEA, Yukiya Amano, from Japan, says he has reached a deal with Iran on probing suspected work on nuclear weapons. The agreement will be signed soon. Israeli leaders have been critical of the talks, claiming it allows Iran to buy time and drive a wedge between Washington and Jerusalem. Israel’s Defence Minister Ehud Barak says even moves by Iran to open its nuclear facilities to inspection won’t rule out a military strike. the associated press

Syria conflict ‘increasingly militarized’: UN The Syrian regime and an increasingly organized rebel force are carrying out illegal killings and torturing their opponents,

a UN panel says. But government forces are still responsible for most of the violence stemming from the country’s uprising, the panel added Thursday. The findings were released in Geneva, Switzerland, by the Independent International Commission of Inquiry on Syria, which said the conflict has become “increasingly

militarized.” The report was based on hundreds of interviews since March with victims and witnesses. “Fighters in anti-government armed groups were killed after capture,” it says. “In some instances, entire families were executed in their homes — family of those opposing the government.” the associated press

Swiss solar-powered plane aims to be the first to circle the globe First leg of trip ends in Morocco. Team hoping for good weather as plane is not designed to fly in bad conditions An experimental solar-powered airplane took off from Switzerland on its first transcontinental flight Thursday, aiming to reach North Africa next week. Pilot Andre Borschberg plan­ned to take the jumbo jetsize Solar Impulse plane on its first leg to Madrid, Spain, by Friday. His colleague Bertrand Piccard will take the helm of the aircraft for the second stretch of its 2,500-kilometre journey to Rabat, Morocco. Fog on the runaway at its home base in Payerne, Switzerland, delayed the takeoff by two hours, demonstrating how susceptible the prototype single-seater aircraft is to adverse weather.

The jumbo jet-sized Solar Impulse took off from Switzerland Thursday, headed for Morocco on the first leg of its planned intercontinental flight using no fuel but the sun’s rays. Laurent Gillieron/The associated Press

“We can’t fly into clouds because it was not designed for that,” Borschberg said

as he piloted the lumbering plane with its 63-metre wingspan toward the eastern

French city of Lyon at a cruising speed of just 70 km/h. Before landing in Madrid

in the early hours of Friday, Borschberg will face other challenges, including having to overfly the Pyrenees mountains that separate France and Spain. Just in case things go dis­ astrously wrong, Borschberg has a parachute inside his tiny cabin that he hopes never to use. “When you take an umbrella, it never rains,” he joked in a satellite call with the Associated Press. Piccard — the son of un­ dersea explorer Jacques Piccard and grandson of balloonist Auguste Piccard — will have to cross the windy Straits of Gibraltar from Europe to Africa. The team has been invited to Morocco by the country’s King Mohammed VI to showcase the cutting edge of solar technology. Morocco is about to start construction on a massive solar-energy plant at Ouarzazate. The plant will form part of a country-wide solarenergy grid with a capacity of 2000 megawatts by 2020.

Just the beginning

The mission is a dress rehearsal for a round-theworld flight in 2014. • In 2010, the Swiss flew

non-stop for 26 hours to demonstrate that the plane can stay airborne through the night.

• The project began in

2003 and is estimated to cost about $100 million over 10 years.

Robot vanity

Mars rover sees its shadow, takes a ‘self-portrait’ Even robots like to have fun. NASA’s rover on Mars showed off its playful side by snapping a photo of its own shadow. It’s the latest self-portrait since the rover, named Opportunity, landed on the red planet in 2004. The photo was taken in March, and the U.S. space agency released it this week. The solarpowered rover was at the rim of a massive crater. The late afternoon sun set the crater aglow, and Opportunity waited for just the right lighting to send a postcard back to Earth. After nearly five months in one spot, the rover is rolling again to explore more rocks. Its twin, Spirit, stopped communicating in 2010. The Associated Press

Otto Jensen. 101-year-old former boxer struck and killed by driver, 91 Even at 101 years old, Otto Jensen showed little sign of slowing down. The former boxer from Denmark still ran a photography studio and often could be seen crossing the street in front of it to get to a senior centre he frequented. On Tuesday night, while crossing that four-lane Burbank street, Jensen was struck and killed by a car driven by a 91-year-old woman. Jensen was a well-known figure in his hometown, where he served as grand marshal of the city’s centennial parade last year. His death saddened the community just north of Los Angeles. A poster tied to a tree near the crash scene had photos of Jensen, including one taken in 1930 when he was a 19-year-old boxer nicknamed “Bonecrusher.” An­other was dated last year, when he turned 100.

Fight fan to the end

• Jensen, who ran his photo studio for 60 years, remained interested in boxing and was an avid fan of Manny Pacquiao, the world champion fighter from the Philippines. In an interview last year, Jensen lauded Pacquiao as the greatest ever.

Police are unsure what led to the accident but said Jensen was crossing legally, although there wasn’t a crosswalk where he was hit and he nearly was across the street when he was struck. The driver, Mary Beaumont, stopped at the scene but was not arrested or cited. She said Wednesday that she was fine and declined further comment. the associated press

China. Couple arrested for allegedly burying collision victim alive Chinese authorities arrested a man and his girlfriend in the death of an elderly woman he knocked down while driving drunk and whose body was later found buried at a construction site. Police say the woman likely was alive when buried. The official Xinhua News Agency reported Thursday the couple was intoxicated and returning home from a bar in the eastern city of Cixi on April 30 when the Tunisia

man ran over the 68-yearold woman. Xinhua cites a witness as saying the couple carried the woman into their car saying they would take her to a hospital. Instead, they allegedly buried her to avoid responsibility for the accident. One report cites the man as saying the woman had stopped breathing. But Xinhua says police believe she was still alive.

Scuffle erupts in Ukraine parliament over new bill Opposing factions.

Serbian refugee to U.S. faces warcrimes charges

The prosecutor in a military tribunal has demanded the death penalty for Tunisia’s former dictator over his role in the deaths of protesters during the popular uprising that overthrew him a year ago. Zine El Abidine Ben Ali fled to Saudi Arabia and is being tried in absentia by both military and civilian courts in Tunisia for alleged crimes committed during his 23-year, iron-fisted rule of the North African country.

War on terror. U.S. cuts aid to Pakistan after doctor’s arrest A Senate panel expressed its outrage Thursday over Pakistan’s conviction of a doctor who helped the United States track down Osama bin Laden, cutting aid to Islamabad by $33 million — $1 million for every year of the physician’s 33-year sentence for high treason. The punitive move came on top of deep reductions the appropriations committee already had made to President Barack Obama’s budget request for Pakistan, a reflection of the growing congressional anger over its lack of co-operation in combating terrorism. The overall foreign-aid South Korea

budget for next year had slashed more than half of the proposed assistance and threatened further reductions if Islamabad failed to open overland supply routes to U.S.-led NATO forces in Afghanistan. Pushing aside any diplomatic talk, Republicans and Democrats criticized Pakistan a day after the conviction in Pakistan of Shakil Afridi. The doctor ran a vaccination program for the CIA to collect DNA and verify bin Laden’s presence at the compound in Abbottabad where U.S. commandos found and killed the al-Qaida leader in May 2011.

Lead emerges in 1979 missing-child case Man confesses. After 33 years, mystery of first missing kid on a milk carton may at last have an ending

New York City police spokesman Paul Browne holds up a photo of Etan Patz at a media conference in SoHo Thursday. Mary Altaffer/The Associated Press

A New York City law-enforcement official said Thursday that a man has told police that he suffocated Etan Patz, the six-year-old boy whose dis­appearance on his way to

school in 1979 helped give rise to the missing-children’s movement that put youngsters’ faces on milk cartons. Pedro Hernandez was pick­ed up late Wednesday in New Jersey, according to a law-enforcement official, and was being questioned Thursday by the Manhattan district attorney’s office. Hernandez worked at a con­venience store in the ne­i­ gh­bourhood where Patz li­v­ed, and moved to New Jer­sey short-

ly after the boy disappeared 33 years ago, according to a second law-enforcement official. He has been tied to the case in the past, and investigators recently received a phone call that tipped them off to him, the officials said. Hernandez said he suffocated the boy, then put the body in a box, walked down the street and left the box in an alley, the first official said. No body or box has been recovered, and Hernandez has not been charged. Investigators said they were still trying to confirm details of the man’s story. The development came just before the Friday anniversary of Etan’s disappearance, when detectives typically receive a landslide of hoaxes and false leads. “Let me caution you that there’s still a lot of investigating to do,” Mayor Michael Norway massacre


If found sane, killer will not appeal verdict The Norwegian right-wing extremist who has admitted to killing 77 people in a massacre last year said Thursday that he doesn’t plan to appeal the verdict if an Oslo court deems him sane. Two psychological examinations carried out before the 10-week trial started reached opposite conclusions on whether Anders Behring Breivik is psychotic — the key issue to be resolved during the trial, which began in mid-April.

Bloomberg said. A woman who answered the door at Hernandez’s Ma­ ple Shade, N.J., home confirmed he was in custody. The associated Press

Breivik has confessed to the July 22 massacre when he gunned down 69 people at a youth retreat on Utoya island after setting off a bomb in central Oslo that killed eight others. But he denies criminal guilt for the rampage, saying the victims had betrayed their country by embracing immigration. The self-styled antiMuslim crusader has strongly contested the psychological evaluation that deemed him insane for fear it would undermine his ideological reasoning. “If I’m found sane, I have no grounds to appeal,” the 33-year-old said at the end of Thursday’s proceedings in Oslo.

Whistler, B.C., two years ago. Robert Fawcett’s lawyer appeared on his behalf in provincial court in Pemberton on Thursday, but the matter will be moved to North Vancouver on June 19. Crown spokesman Neil MacKenzie said there are concerns over courthouse security. “The sheriffs will be better able to manage any concerns that might arise at their facilities in North Vancouver,” he said outside the small two-

storey building in Pemberton. MacKenzie said he understands there have been some threats made against Fawcett although he’s not directly aware of any himself. As for whether protesters might be expected outside the court, MacKenzie said he can’t say. Fawcett faces one count of causing unnecessary pain and suffering to the dogs in the animal-cruelty case that has drawn international attention.

Fifty-six dogs were dug up in a mass grave near Whistler after information leaked out in January 2011 through a workers-compensation claim of post-traumatic stress disorder. Bob Fawcett also posted details on a PTSD website, describing how panicked animals were shot or had their throats slit before being dumped into the grave. The animals had been a tourist draw during the 2010 Vancouver Olympics.

After the information leaked out about the cull, Fawcett and the company that bought his business, Outdoor Adventures, issued a statement in February 2011 that many of the dogs were old and sick and that efforts to have them adopted were unsuccessful. It said no instructions were provided to Fawcett on how to kill the dogs, but that he was known to have put down dogs humanely on previous occasions. the canadian press

Taking a stand at SlutWalk A man holds a poster as activists take part in a SlutWalk in Kolkata, India, on Thursday. The event was held to protest, among other issues, any form of sexual harassment of any gender in public places.

No more ice-cream headaches in B.C.

1962 wedding ring unearthed

A familiar sound of summer has been frozen out as councillors in West Kelowna, B.C., have voted to ban the tinny chimes of the ice cream truck. The newly adopted policy prohibits music or voice-amplifying devices from any mobile vending unit. The policy was adopted after district officials say they received numerous complaints about music blaring from the icecream and snack trucks. Councillors also voiced concerns about children running out into streets.

New EI rules take aim at frequent users Unemployment. StatsCan reported this week there were about 237,000 unfilled jobs in February Ottawa is tightening employment-insurance eligibility with new rules that hit repeat claim­ ants hardest, but will force all on the system to accept lowpaying jobs. The government says it will put strict definitions on what constitutes “suitable employment” and what the unemployed must do to find a job in order to get off EI. The new rules are expected to be in effect early in 2013. Human Resources Minister Diane Finley said the intent of changes is to get Canadians off EI and on to jobs for which they are qualified. “These changes are not about forcing people to accept work outside their own area nor about taking jobs for which they are not suited.” But NDP critic Peggy Nash accused the government of blaming the unemployed for the poor economy. “What we heard today is the minister scapegoating un­ employed Canadians ... that they are not trying hard

The changes create three new categories of unemployment with a sliding scale of expectations for jobs people must accept — depending on how often they have collected benefits in the past, and the

length they are currently on EI. Long-tenured workers, mostly employed over the past 10 years, can refuse a job outside their usual occupation that doesn’t pay at least 90 per cent of their previous hourly wage. However, even this cate­ gory of worker must lower expectations after 18 weeks

on the system and accept any “similar occupation” within the industry that pays at least 80 per cent of their previous scale. Frequent EI claimants, who have been on the system at least three times for a total of 60 weeks over the past five years, will be expected to take a similar job that pays at least 80 per cent of their previous

wage rate. After six weeks, claimants will have to take any job for which they are qualified, even if it is not in the same field, at 70 per cent of the previous pay. “Occasional claimants” must accept work paying at least 90 per cent of their previous scale in the first six weeks, 80 per cent in the next 12 weeks and 70 per cent after 18 weeks on benefits. The majority of claimants — 58 per cent — fall in this “occasional” category, Finley said. The government said it will also make it easier for the unemployed to find work by emailing them two “job alerts” a day, informing them of openings. As well, the EI system will be linked to the temporaryforeign-workers program to ensure Canadians are aware of employers’ needs. “Bringing in temporary foreign workers is not acceptable, especially when we have Canadians willing to work,” she explained. But in return, those on benefits will need to prove to government officials that they are genuinely looking for work, including applying for positions, attending interviews and keeping a record of their search activities. the canadian press

Canadians can withstand housing downturn: DBRS Credit-rating agency DBRS said Thursday that average Canadian households can withstand a catastrophic drop in home prices, but warned that a rise in unemployment would be a greater concern. The agency said a 40 per cent drop in prices or rising interest rates would put pressure on Canadian households, but not have a large impact on mortgage defaults.

“However, a combination of higher interest rates, lower property values and a drastic increase in unemployment would be of great concern as mortgage defaults are closely related to employment and individual family situations,” DBRS said in a report. “If unemployment spikes, many financially stretched households will be forced to sell their homes, putting greater downward pressure

on house prices and turning many people into both house poor and cash poor.” The report comes amid continuing warnings from Bank of Canada governor Mark Carney and federal Finance Minister Jim Flaherty that higher interest rates are just a matter of time and that Canadians need to ensure they don’t get in over their financial heads with loans and mortgages. the canadian press

The veteran Canadian actor, who died in a car crash last Friday, was a comic genius — having been a longtime performer with the Second City improv troupe and appeared in many TV comedies.

2 SCENE Scene in brief

One (and possibly the only) reason to see MIB3: Josh Brolin’s Tommy Lee Jones impression. HANDOUT

Third time’s not the charm Reel Guys


MIB3. Latest alien instalment from Will Smith falls flat despite a scarily good Tommy Lee Jones impression from Josh Brolin Richard: Mark, I was six when Apollo 11 happened and was incredibly bored by the whole thing. I couldn’t understand why the shows I liked were being preempted for moon launch coverage. The Cape Canaveral takeoff plays a big part in MIB3 and I felt like I was six again. Not filled with wonder but wishing I was watching something else. The movie has its moments, but by and large didn’t work for me. You? Mark: The movie was un-

even to say the least. I tend to like time travel plots and I enjoy anything set in the ’60s but there was a lot of dead space and repetition. But I was impressed with the art direction and Josh Brolin’s scarily accurate Tommy Lee Jones impression. RC: If this acting thing doesn’t work out for Brolin he does have a future as a Tommy Lee Jones impersonator. He could do weddings and Bar Mitzvahs and make a fortune. He’s that good. But I felt that despite a good bad guy, some cool creatures and Brolin, the movie didn’t have the charm or the energy of the first two movies. It reminded me of another effects laden Will Smith movie — Wild Wild West. MB: And I thought Will Smith really walked through this one as did Tommy Lee Jones. But the actor who


As the third instalment opens, Boris the Animal — a notorious intergalactic serial killer — is forty years into a life sentence. He’s locked away in the only place that will hold him, a super high security prison on the moon. After a daring escape he plans a full scale invasion of earth, but first he wants revenge on the man who put him in jail, MIB agent K (Tommy Lee Jones). The only way to thwart Boris’s evil plan is for Agent J (Will Smith) to go back in time to 1969 and stop Boris. •

stole the show for me was Michael Stuhlbarg who plays the autistic cosmic seer Grif-

fin. A completely original performance of a completely original character. And Bill Hader’s take on Andy Warhol made me laugh. RC: Absolutely. Both are bright spots. I also enjoyed Smith literally hurtling through time, the idea that Mick Jagger is an alien sent to the planet to breed with Earth women and the battle in the Chinese restaurant. All cool moments, but the magic of the first film is gone — even the fun stuff in this film seems to evaporate as soon the next scene starts — and don’t even get me started about the ending. MB: Even the film’s tone has a stop/start feel to it. The movie isn’t quite a comedy, not quite an action flick. The original got this mix just right, the sequel was close, but the third time is not the charm.

Efron’s revealing role

Zac Efron says he felt uncomfortable filming his revealing role in The Paperboy — and that’s the way he wanted it. The High School Musical actor moves into grown-up territory with the film by Precious director Lee Daniels, which is screening at the Cannes Film Festival. It’s a swampy slice of Southern gothic set in the 1960s, with Efron as an aspiring writer. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Hollywood puts a new twist on an old children’s staple — the fairy tale Mirror, mirror. With several fairy tale films in the works in the upcoming years, which one will end up being the fairest of them all? Steve Gow

Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters (January 2013) Hansel and Gretel tells the story of two siblings who get sucked into eating an old cannibalistic lady’s candy house

Snow White and the Huntsman is just one of several movies that is taking the fairy tale and adding an action-packed twist. handout

if only to get fattened up. In this version, Hansel and Gretel have become bounty hunters who seek revenge on nasty witches. Reason for optimism: The film stars Jeremy Renner (The Avengers). Plus, director Tommy Wirkola’s cult hit Dead Snow featured Nazi zombies so this is probably going to be a pretty dark fairy tale. Maleficent (2014) First published in 1697, Sleep-

ing Beauty has had many adaptations but never has the witch who cast that evil slumber spell been handed her own screenplay ­— until now. In Maleficent, the Sleeping Beauty story is told from the point of view of the villain and I’m guessing it’s not all her fault. Reason for optimism: Angelina Jolie is attached to play Maleficent and directing will be Robert Stromberg, the Oscar-winning production designer for Avatar.

Pan (Date TBD) Sure, Peter Pan is J.M. Barrie’s leotard-wearing Boy Who Wouldn’t Grow Up but in this upcoming dramatic spin, Pan is a killer being hunted for kidnapping by a cop named Hook. Reason for optimism: Besides a wicked plot, director Ben Hibon did some of the cool animation work in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1. Oz: The Great and Powerful

(March 2013) Originally published in 1900, The Wizard of Oz made its biggest mark on-screen with the 1939 classic film starring Judy Garland. Now Sam Raimi (The Evil Dead) is completing the origin story of how that simple circus magician became the wonderful Wiz. Reason for optimism: James Franco plays the Wiz. Plus, who wouldn’t want to see Raimi’s version of a flying monkey?

What about Jack?

Jack the Giant Killer Set for release in March 2013, this film is closely associated with Jack and the Beanstalk. It takes the fairy tale and twists it so the titular character must battle a race of giants in order to rescue a princess. Now how do you like those beans?


With Snow White and the Huntsman, starring Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron, hitting theatres on June 1, Hollywood has effectively re-established its love affair with the fairy tale. There’s no exact reason why, but with no less than a dozen folklore-based films in production, there’s one novelty to this new affection for re-inventing the fairy tale — an adventurous twist. It’s not an original idea but its surge may be in part due to producers seeking relatable franchises to compete with big money making superhero hits like The Avengers. Whether audiences will enjoy modern folktales like Sleeping Beauty takes to orthopedic mattresses is yet to be determined. Nevertheless here are a few forthcoming fairy tale flicks:

Join the cult Brit Marling’s Sound of My Voice follows a pair of documentary filmmakers (Christopher Denham and Nicole Vicius) going undercover to expose a cult led by the dialysis-dependent, enigmatic Maggie (Marling), who claims to be from the future. The film is an intriguing look at the power plays and mind games involved in indoctrination, leading the viewer to question exactly what is and isn’t true. But it’s not the first cinematic look at cults. We decided to see how it stacks up against two of our favourites. ned ehrbar metro world news in hollywood

Sound of my voice

Martha Marcy May Marlene

Plot: Filmmakers Peter and Lorna set out to expose Maggie, but risk getting wrapped up in her world.

Plot: A young woman (Elizabeth Olsen) escapes a rural, cult-like community but is haunted by her experiences there.

Plot: A depressed man (Edward Norton) seeks excitement and release through a bare-knuckle boxing group that quickly spirals into something bigger.

Type of cult: Messianic

Type of cult: Familial, not specifically religious

Type of cult: Non-religious, militaristic

Goal: Farming, fornicating and total subjugation to its enigmatic, folk singer leader, Patrick (John Hawkes)

Goal: Fighting, resuscitating masculinity, gleefully destroying modern society and the financial system, making soap.

Goal: Preparing for the coming food shortages and disasters Maggie insists are imminent. Armed?: They have at least one handgun.

Armed?: Yup. Olsen’s Martha/Marcy May is even encouraged to shoot a fellow cult member.

There isn’t much redemption in watching a film like Chernobyl Diaries. Then again, there’s not supposed to be. A gratuitous spectacle set at the now-abandoned site of the world’s worst nuclear disaster, a group of ill-equipped tourists get stranded only to discover they’re not alone. Oren Peli’s (Paranormal Activity) script isn’t wholly original, but mere suggestion and shaky cinematography will likely be enough to sell many tickets.

Set in nineteenth century London, Hysteria is a rom com about Mortimer Granville (Hugh Dancy), a young handsome doctor whose hand cramps led directly to the invention of the vibrator. As social commentary it’s lightweight, and a movie about the invention of the tool that revolutionized sexuality should focus on that and not the predictable rom com love triangle. I expected more than a comedy of manners with an off-colour edge from the story. As such, this is a rental, not a night out.

Based on playwright Terence Rattigan’s 1952 work, the film opens with Hester Collyer (Weisz)’s botched suicide following the crumbling of relationships with both her stuffy husband and alcoholic lover. Director Terrence Davies emphasizes Hester’s inner turmoil as she bristles against the societal expectations of post-war Britain. The anger and resentment that seethes out of each character, aided by some fantastic performances, makes Davies’ film jump off the screen.

SCENE WEEKEND, May 25-27, 2012

Summer music festival season is finally here. Instead of being exposed to one or two bands every other week or so like an entry-level fan, festivals give you a chance to squeeze in all of the bands you ever wanted to see (and plenty that you didn’t) in one musical cram-session. Not all summer music festivals are created equal, however, so here are a few coming up south of the border that we think are worth schlepping all the way for.

Pretty Lights All photos getty images

Wakarusa May 31-June 3, Ozark, Ark. Supersized festivals like this one are usually just as much for die-hard music fans as they are for tent and dirt enthusiasts, which has made this long-running music and camping festival in Arkansas such a hit. That and the eclectic lineups — this year the slate runs the gamut from heady electronic bro Pretty Lights, to neomod soul act Fitz and the Tant-rums, to indie beardos Blitzen Trapper, who were probably going to be hanging around nearby in the woods anyway.

For almost 15 years this has been one of the biggest electronic music festivals in the U.S.. Now that EDC is bigger than ever, it makes sense that the festival would expand exponentially too. Big names like Avicii, Tiesto, Afrojack and David Guetta headline.

This year the likes of Skrillex, Radiohead, Mogwai, Das Racist, GZA, Santigold, The Roots and Foster the People give the nation’s hipsters a really confusing idea of what Tennessee is actually like.


Pitchfork Music Festival

Old people like music too, and while they may not do as many drugs as they used to, sometimes it’s nice to go back and relive the glory days, if only for a weekend. Phil Lesh & Friends, The Flaming Lips, Bob Weir and Bruce Hornsby with Branford Marsalis, The Allman Brothers Band and your dad will all be there.

Master of her ‘Make-Believe’ Santigold. When it comes to spreading positivity, this pop princess is totally unstoppable PAT HEALY

Santigold became cemented into the lore of summer music three years ago. It all started when an eccentric guy dancing alone on a patch of grass far away from the stage at the Sasquatch Music Festival attracted hundreds of ecstatic revelers to join him, and eventually 5.9 million viewers on YouTube. All the while, singer Santi White was chanting a triumphant chorus of “I’ve got to be unstoppable.” “That was amazing,” says White, reflecting back on the moment. “When we were onstage, we noticed something far off in the distance and just saw this huge part of the crowd running across the field, and I remember afterward we were like, ‘Did you see that? What happened?’ And then when somebody sent it to me on YouTube I couldn’t believe it. I’ve heard that the video has been used in leadership classes.” This moment is a good metaphor for everything that the music of Santigold represents. The songs are playful and fun, but they are firmly rooted in the notion of spreading positivity. Releasing a self-titled debut in 2009, Santigold toured for two years and built a loyal following, so that when she released her sophomore album, Master of My Make-Believe earlier this month, the response was not entirely unlike the dancers running across the field to join in on the fun. “It’s great as an artist, starting out, to just spend some time building a fan base,” she says. “I was really grateful that the demand was there for so long.” The live show is equally deserving of that demand, with its cross of high energy and

high camp. Robotic backup singers flank White and occasionally bust into funny, oldschool dance moves. Backup musicians wear rubber flat-top wigs, making them look like comic book versions of ancient Egyptians. Oh, and there’s also a two-person horsey that comes out to dance. “I just closed my eyes one day and I saw lassos and a horse, and I was like, ‘We need lassos and a horse!’ and everybody looked at me like I was crazy,” she says of the eureka moment. “And then me and my girls went online and we found this cool horse outfit and we were like, ‘That’s the one!’ I wanted it to be theatrical in a very do-it-yourself sort of way, like a high school play.” Master of My Make-Believe opens in a call to arms, with the song, GO! against electronic pulses and jungle drums, Santi White sings about how haters have tried to steal her power away, “but they couldn’t take it.” “There’s truth to all of these songs,” she says, “and this one is just watching people in the super mainstream pick and choose and take bits of what’s going on in the underground. ... Also, that song is kind of like a tongue-in-cheek fun song. They’re kind of like mantra songs for me, where you just need to be like, ‘I’m the best!’ Especially when you’re working on a new record, and you really don’t feel like that. “There’s just times when you don’t feel like that, and it’s nice to be able to sing songs like that to make yourself feel good.”

Ian Astbury is home — sort of. Reclining in a chair at the back of an appropriately dark downtown club, the singer of the Cult is happy to be back in Ontario where he spent his early years in Hamilton and later years in Toronto. Now living in LA, he’s excitedly talking about the new Cult album, Choice of Weapon, part of which was produced by Canadian Bob Rock. This reunion seems to be sticking. (Ruefully) Reunion (laughs). We’ve been ‘reconvening’ for seven years. The first one, ’95 through ’99, I needed time. I needed to walk away. In ’99 we signed to Warner Brothers and the industry just went ‘kablooie’. It was a difficult time to come back. Then the Doors thing (a semi Doors reunion with Ian as singer) came along. Then I just started popping around doing stuff. There was Trent Reznor. We were potentially working on a group together…

Wait, wait! What potential group with Trent Reznor? We were kind of toying with the idea of doing something at one point. He was sniffing around. I think he was looking for what his next move was going to be. I’d love to work with Trent at some point, but we’ll see. You’ve had the same rhythm section in the Cult for a while. The Cult has actually had several careers within our 31 years. We fought to keep this (incarnation) together. This is also the most prolific version of the Cult with albums, EPs, reissues all coming over the last couple of years. I think we just got confident in terms of not judging (the material) before it came out. I’m the worst critic. I criticize it before it’s even been written. Working with the Doors was part of this new confidence. How did the Super Bowl commercial (the mash-up featuring Flo Rida and She Sells Sanctuary) come about? Budweiser approached us. It’s pitched to us as 150 million viewers. We thought this was an amazing opportunity to put the band’s name out there. It actually helped me pay back my publishing deal. I signed the worst deals in the ’80s. They’re still playing it, too. Where and when your band’s brand comes up in the culture, you don’t get to choose. Choice of Weapon is out now.

Sexy and he knows it Cover boy. Meet the high school senior with the vocal stylings of a man — we’d happily let Noah Guthrie sing the phone book for us Michelle Castillo

Metro World News

Seven million views and counting. Noah Guthrie’s cover of LMFAO’s Sexy and I Know It went viral because, instead of the usual poppy club hit, the version was a blues-tinged, acoustic ditty that showed of his very smooth vocals (physically, he doesn’t look so smooth). A free downloadable version of the song is available at We talked to Guthrie about his career and covers. How old were you when you started playing guitar and singing? I started to play guitar when I was 14 or 15. I’ve been singing my whole life in front of people since I was 13. Why did you decide to start

putting videos on YouTube? I wanted to get my name out. I’m mainly an original songwriter, but I do covers mainly to get my name out. How do you choose your covers? I usually choose something that is a little current, something popping on the charts. But, sometimes I’ll do a song because I like it. Why did you decide to cover Sexy and I Know It? It was a joke to myself and to the people that were subscribed to me on YouTube. I wanted people to get a kick out of it, but they got more kicks out of it than I thought they would.

What does your family say about your music career? I’ve never been told to look for something else because this isn’t a career. I’ve never been told that by my family. And, my manager has become a part of my family. It’s great to have a family that supports you. What did they think about the success of your cover of Sexy and I Know It? We thought it was funny that it was this one, the one I didn’t take seriously.

How did you come up with that interesting take of the song? I was just playing that groove. I don’t know how I started singing the lyrics. I think I sang the “wiggle wiggle” part and that was it.

What are you up to next? I have graduation on the 31st of this month. I go to an online school called K-12 South Carolina Virtual Charter School, and I’m about to graduate high school. I’m working on a new cover song that I don’t want to talk about yet. And, I’ll be opening up for Eddie Money and playing a big seminar, convention thing for some labels in New York.

What was it like being on the Today Show? I’ve watched that show since I was young. I love it. I lost my mind. I love Matt Lauer! I love Ann Curry!

Shirley Manson & co. hungry for more Not Your Kind of People. Scottish frontwoman revels in Garbage return, talks about new album Shirley Manson still remembers the words of wisdom Bono gave her about keeping a band intact for the long haul. “Split the money. You have to split the song writing so everyone is equal. (And) don’t buy houses, so that you don’t get consumed with decorating,” he told her. That might not have been the most coherent advice, but it’s worked for Garbage: the rockers are still together, and releasing their first album in seven years this week. Though they went on a hiatus, the band (which includes Steve Marker, Duke Erikson on guitars and keyboards and producer Butch Vig on drums) picks up where they left off with Not Your Kind of People. It’s been seven years — why this album now? Enough things had happened to us over the course of the last six to seven years that we were all filled up again — ready to make music from a proper place of enthusiasm and fun. I know I sound like a simpleton but it’s true. When we first sort

of broke out, we made music for pure reasons. We really had an amazing run. Then our band grew more successful, and our record company sold us to a major label, who then had major label desires to brand us. When that didn’t really work, they just lost all interest in us. As a result, we were floundering on a label that didn’t care about us. It was really joyless. It stripped us of all joy. What advice would you give a female rock singer trying to make it? I would say figure out what it is that you want to say. When you figure out what it is you want to say, you have to be willing to stand by that. You have to be willing to take a million slaps in the face, and keep standing up. the associated press

Bar wants us to feel sorry for her It’s hard out there for a supermodel. Bar Refaeli, who previously dated Leonardo DiCaprio, insists that despite her famous beauty, she gets very little male attention. “Let’s put it out there: no one hits on me. No one flirts with me. It’s very sad, actually,” Refaeli tells Conan O’Brien during an interview. “A guy who comes up to me (directly) works. I hope that will happen every now and again.” But if you plan on approaching Refaeli, be sure you’ve been to the dentist: “I want him to be sweet and kind with good values and morals,” she says of what she looks for in a guy. “But the first thing I notice is his teeth.

Brad Pitt’s pre-bachelor party? Paula Abdul. GETTY IMAGES

Simon would say what during sex? Paula Abdul insists she could never have an intimate relationship with former boss Simon Cowell, despite what his unauthorized biography might say. “According to him, we did a lot of hanging out,”

she tells Wendy Williams in an interview. “But I’ve got to tell you something, it would never ever happen because he’s selfish and he’d be a selfish lover and he’d call his own name out during sex if it ever happened.”


Although he insists there’s no date set for his wedding to Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt has been treating the Cannes Film Festival like a bit of a bachelor party. At a black-tie after-party for his new film Killing The Softly, the actor partied with everyone from Kylie Minogue to P.Diddy — who

stopped by for a congrats drink before getting back to his yacht — and put back some expensive booze with Jolie nowhere in sight. “With Brad’s impending wedding it almost had the feel of a sophisticated prebachelor party, with bottles of $390 Johnnie Walker whisky and plenty of cigars,” a guest, who we assume didn’t arrive by yacht, tells Us Weekly. “It was definitely a night for Brad to remember.” You’d think so. But then again, swanky whiskey with Diddy on the French Riviera might be Brad Pitt’s equivalent of warm wine coolers with the cat.

Sipping to a soundtrack of the past LIQUID ASSETS

Peter Rockwell @therealwineguy peterrockwell@eastlink.cca

I’m assuming with the ease of downloading, the idea of an age limit on viewing movies is for the most part out the window. Back in my underage days, the mere thought of a movie being “Rated R” was a call to arms. We had to try to see it — even if it meant risking being kicked out of the movie theatre. I’m proud to say the first restricted flick I successfully attended was Saturday Night Fever. Not only was it a great film, it had a soundtrack that spoke of the times. Hearing that Robin Gibb passed away last weekend got me watching it again (yes, I own it now) and thinking of when all the Bee Gees were Stayin’ Alive. With Robin gone to the big disco in the sky I plan on raising a toast to his talent tonight with a glass of the California’s 2010 Big House Red ($10.95 - $12.99). Combining an insane blend of more than a dozen grapes, it’s a fruit bomb that slaps the palate with a burst of blackberry/strawberry fruit and just a touch of spice that easily harmonizes with casual dining in between spins on the dance floor.

Life is but a (tasty) picnic Straight-Up Deviled Eggs. Elizabeth Karmel shares her classic recipe for a fave When I think about summer, I think about deviled eggs. Beginning with Easter and going straight through September, just about every activity — from camping and cookouts to beach vacations — can be enhanced by a plate of deviled eggs. It’s really just a matter of swapping the garnish to fit the activity or mood. If I am feeling down-homey, I add pimento cheese to my basic deviled egg mixture. If I want to spice it up, I add pureed chipotle. For the right occasion I’ll even get a little fancy and top deviled eggs with caviar. Still, no matter how good embellished deviled eggs are, my favourite remains what I call “straight-up deviled eggs.” They are as advertised — classic and simple. One of the beauties of deviled eggs is how well they travel. That’s why I call them party eggs.

After a spell of chilly weather, many are keen to show off their feet — even at restaurant patios while soaking up the rays. But those in the business of good manners agree that feet on public seats, especially in places where we eat, is a faux pas. “As soon as you get into public areas ... it’s no longer yours. It belongs to everybody,” said Suzanne Nourse, founder and owner of The Protocol School of Ottawa and co-author of The Power of Civility. “The true meaning of etiquette is not about the knife and fork: it’s how we treat other people. And putting your feet up — where somebody else is going to sit down later — is inappropriate.” THE CANADIAN PRESS

Giro d’Italia

Rodriguez retains lead over Hesjedal Andrea Guardini edged out favourite Mark Cavendish in a bunch sprint to win the 18th stage of the Giro d’Italia on Thursday as Joaquin Rodriguez kept his grip on the overall lead. Guardini, who finished last in the previous stage, timed his sprint to perfection to win in three hours 52 seconds. Roberto Ferrari was third. It is the fifth victory for an Italian rider this year, equalling the country’s 1974 record. Rodriguez maintained his 30-second lead over Victoria’s Ryder Hesjedal in the overall standings after Hesjedal finished 67th.

NHL. Both teams are downplaying memories of Messier’s guarantee in ’94 Eighteen years ago, Mark Messier set the stage for one of sports’ most dramatic moments. On the eve of the New York Rangers’ must-win Game 6 against the Devils in New Jersey in the 1994 Eastern Conference final, Messier guaranteed his team would force a deciding contest back at Madison Square Garden. The Rangers not only won, Messier backed up his boast with a hat trick. Fast forward to now. The teams once more head to a

Game 6, in New Jersey, with the Rangers — again the East’s top team — down 3-2, needing a win to stay alive. That’s where the similarity ends. This time, New York really isn’t the star-laden team that ended the franchise’s halfcentury Stanley Cup drought back in 1994. The Devils have shown repeatedly in this best-of-seven series they are just as good as their longtime, cross-river rivals. The only game the Rangers dominated was Game 5, and the Devils won 5-3. Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur is the only player remaining from the memorable 1994 series. Now 40, he was the difference on Wednesday night in New York. “I don’t see anything

that is similar,” Brodeur said Thursday in a conference call. “I know if you guys look at it, it looks the same. But it’s different teams and a different way of playing the game. That’s 18 years ago. That’s a

long time. I know I’m feeling a lot different. I’m feeling a lot more appreciative of what’s going on.” Rangers coach John Tortorella downplayed the comparison, saying his players were not even thinking about it. “Not to disrespect what happened,” he said, “but that has nothing to do with how we’re preparing.” The Devils are in position to advance to their first Stanley Cup final since 2003 and a meeting with the Los Angeles Kings, starting next week. All they have to do is win on either Friday here or Sunday in New York, where they have already won two of three. “I don’t think we’re looking at two chances,” said New Jersey forward Dainius Zubrus.

Impending Game 7 brings back memories for Erving NBA. Former 76er Dr. J getting nostalgic as old rivals prepare for deciding game

Julius Erving strolled through the 76ers locker-room as Philadelphia celebrated beating the Celtics to set up another Game 7 in Boston. “It brings back all the memories,” the Hall of Famer said after the Sixers forced the first seventh game between the old rivals since he teamed with Andrew Toney to lead Philadelphia past Boston and into the 1982 NBA finals. “It seemed like it always came down to them.... Coming out of the East, (it) was always Boston or Philly.” Jrue Holiday scored 20 points, and Elton Brand had 13 points and 10 rebounds on Wednesday night to lead the 76ers to an 82-75 victory over the Celtics that left the Eastern Conference semifinals tied 3-3. Both teams took the day

Roots of a rivalry

The Sixers and Celtics met 12 times in the playoffs from 1953-69 and five more times from 1977-85, fomenting an animosity that stretched from Bob Cousy and the Syracuse Nationals through Bill Russell and Wilt Chamberlain and into the era of Dr. J and Boston’s original Big Three of Kevin McHale, Robert Parish and Larry Bird.

off on Thursday to rest up for Game 7 in Boston on Saturday. “That’s all we wanted was to win ... and give ourselves a chance to go into Boston and see what happens on Saturday in Game 7,” Sixers coach Doug Collins said after his team stayed alive. “I want more. I want more. We’re going to get greedy, and we want more. We’ve fought, we’ve worked, and we’ve gone through a lot as a team.” the associated press

Perjury trial. David Segui says McNamee told him about Clemens’ ‘darts’ David Segui remembered “darts” but not dates. The former major leaguer testified for the prosecution Thursday in the Roger Clemens perjury trial, and he would have made a much better witness if he kept a better mental calendar. As it was, Segui was able to recall one specific moment that helped the government’s case: A telephone conversation he says he had with Clemens’ strength coach 11 years ago. “He mentioned that he had kept darts to get his wife off his back,” Segui said. Segui echoed the testimony of the six-week-old trial’s key witness. Brian McNamee told the jury last week that he saved a needle and other materials from an alleged steroids injection of Clemens in 2001. McNamee testified he was trying to allay his wife’s fears he would take all the blame if the drug use was discovered. “He mentioned that the relationship between Brian and Roger had put stress on his married life,” said Segui, recalling other parts of the conversation.

Segui, who has acknowled­ ged using performance-enhancing drugs during his 15-year baseball career with seven teams, wasn’t allowed to say that “darts” means “needles.” The judge ruled that the jurors will have to make that assumption themselves — unless McNamee were to return to the stand to explain. Segui, who became friends with McNamee when they met in Toronto during the 1999 season, also wasn’t allowed to relate a similar “darts” conversation because he couldn’t remember when it happened. “I’m not good with dates. I don’t log my life,” said Segui, who also couldn’t remember at what point during the ’99 season he was traded from Seattle to Toronto. Clemens is charged with ly­ ing to Congress in 2008 when he denied using steroids and human growth hormone. McNamee says he injected Clemens with both substances and saved some of the waste from the 2001 injection in a beer can. the associated press

Thames running out of chances in Toronto Ethan Rotberg

Eric Thames, the person, is nothing like Edwin Encarnacion. The always-grinning Thames emits an aura of exuberance. His post-game interviews give off a casual air as though he’s conversing with his Pepperdine University roommate. His Twitter is filled with book recommendations and GarageBand music creations. His captivating facial hair is always a talking point. Encarnacion, on the other hand — the former whipping

boy turned offensive Goliath — crushes home runs with a solemn demeanour. If not for the accompanying bat flip, you could be fooled into thinking “EE” was heartbroken by the round-tripper. But what ties them together is the early part of their Blue Jays careers. Both showed pop — Encarnacion had 21 home runs in 96 games in 2010, while Thames had 12 home runs in 95 games last year. When they each struggled with the bat to begin their second campaigns in Toronto, it was a concern. But it was their defensive play that really made them liabilities. Encarnacion made three

errors in the first two games in 2011. Thames, according to UZR — a metric that assigns a run value to a player’s defence — is the fourth-worst defensive outfielder in the majors this season. For Encarnacion, all it took was a move to DH last year and his hitting quickly improved. His shortcomings at third base were affecting the rest of his game — and it showed.

It’s trickier for Thames. With Encarnacion firmly anchored at DH, Thames will have to improve his defence if he wants fans — and the manager — to look past a prolonged offensive slump. After beating out Travis Snider for the left-field job in spring training, Thames’ window to prove he belongs is shrinking. Snider, currently nursing a sore wrist in Triple-A Las Vegas, is one red-eye flight away. Ethan Rotberg’s columns also appear online at metronews. ca. Follow him on Twitter @EthanDR.

How to play This is a substitution cipher where one letter stands for another. Eg: If X equals O, it will equal O throughout the puzzle.

How to play Fill in the grid, so that every row, every column and every 3x3 box contains the digits 1-9. There is no math involved. You solve the puzzle with reasoning and logic.

Aries | March 21 - April 20.

Gemini | May 22 - June 20.

You need to get out into the world and make sure important people know who you are. Cancer | June 21 - July 22. Let other people worry about the small stuff while you focus on the future and the many wonderful things it has to offer you.


Leo | July 23 - Aug. 22. You’ll come to a decision concerning your next big move. Whatever you decide, you must go for it 100 per cent. Virgo | Aug. 23 - Sept. 22.

You’re now in the perfect position to leave your mark on the world. Make sure it’s a positive one. Libra | Sept. 23 - Oct. 22. Old must give way to new sooner or later, and in your case it is most likely sooner. The planets indicate it is time to stop holding on to the past.

Scorpio | Oct. 23 - Nov.

21. Nothing in life is worth getting worked up about – right? Wrong! You’re a Scorpio and that means you are passionate by nature.

Sagittarius | Nov. 22 - Dec. 21. The planets warn you are being

too hard on yourself. Whatever mistake you made, forgive yourself.

Capricorn | Dec. 22 - Jan 20.

Make an effort to find out why a certain person is behaving in a certain way. They’re human, just like you.

Aquarius | Jan. 21 - Feb 18. You’ll have to make a choice of

some sort today and it’s very much a choice between future and past.

Pisces | Feb. 19 - March 20.

Try to read the signals today. Try to predict what other people are going to do before they actually do it. It’s not that hard. Sally brompton
