Mall shooting victim targeted: Police Eaton Centre killing. Family mourns Ahmed Hassan, 24, one of the victims of a lone gunman who opened fire in a busy mall food court As investigators continued a manhunt Sunday for the suspect in the shooting rampage at the Eaton Centre, friends and family of the young man gunned down gathered at a downtown home to mourn him. Groups of young women in brightly-coloured head scarves idled around the compound as the sun set; older women could be seen inside. “I just can’t (talk) right now … I’m sorry,” a visibly distraught young woman said as she stood in the doorway. She identified herself as the sister of Ahmed Hassan,

the 24-year-old man killed in Saturday’s bloody shooting. Detectives have since said that Hassan was known to police and that the shooting was targeted. He was believed to have gang ties. Hassan was killed instantly when a gunman opened fire at Eaton Centre’s food court around 6:30 p.m. on Saturday. Seven others were injured, including a 13-yearold boy who was visiting from Port Hope. The shooting also triggered pandemonium inside the mall as hundreds ran for their lives. The shooter is now the subject of one of the largest manhunts in Toronto’s history, which includes dozens of homicide detectives spanning many divisions. Detectives spent all of Saturday night and Sunday at the Eaton Centre trying to piece together the sequence of events. They watched surveillance footage. They interviewed eyewitnesses.
Gang links explored
“Whether this is a gang-motivated shooting has not been definitely determined, but I can say that it is closely being looked at given that at least one of the victims has known gang associations.” Det. Sgt. Brian Borg Acting Deputy Chief Jeff McGuire said multiple teams of investigators are involved, including homicide, the Guns and Gangs Task Force and several divisions. “We have pulled in all the resources we have at hand,” McGuire said. What police did not do is release a description of the suspect and details such as the type of weapon used and how the shooter escaped the mall. torstar news service

Business goes on near scene of shooting A day after the downtown Eaton Centre food court erupted in a flurry of gunfire, leaving one man dead and two critically wounded, the bustling scene at Yonge Street and Dundas Street West returned to some semblance of normalcy. Groups of tourists posed for pictures in the pedestrian plaza adjacent to Sears, and dinner-goers dined at open-air restaurants, unconcerned with the brazen act of violence that occurred metres away 24 hours earlier. “There does seem to be a lot of activity,” said Abigail Gamble, communications manager for the Downtown Yonge Business Improvement Area. “Police did such a good job of managing the situation; that is what’s giving people the confidence to come back out on the street. They realize that this isn’t something that happens every day.” Several area businesses reported fewer patrons Sunday, which they attributed to the mall’s closure. “This is more of a shock to the community, than a shock to the business,” said Jason King of Salad King, on Yonge north of the Eaton Centre. TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE
“It was instant panic. It was almost as if you stepped on an anthill and everyone just flooded right out of the whole place.” Toronto Blue Jay Brett Lawrie, who was at the mall when the shooting occurred. An avid Twitter user with 128,691 followers, he was among the first to tweet reports of the shooting from the scene.
‘It’s a sad day for the Eaton Centre’
Downtown. Residents gather at Yonge and Dundas to hold vigil Sasha Valentine was shoe shopping at the Eaton Centre when she heard the shots. “I heard shooting, saw people screaming, running to our levels,” she said. “I was freaked out, shaking and crying.” Yet one day later she was back, standing at Dundas and Yonge, joining Torontonians in an effort to reclaim the space they know as their own. “You know what? I’m still going to the Eaton Centre,” she said. “I’m not going to stop because of one stupid act.” A sheet of white paper with pink flowers scrawled with messages in black pen was taped to the centre’s rotating glass doors. “I wish that was the last,” said one message. “Peace is on the way,” said another. Across the street, a vigil was taking place in YongeDundas Square. There was a small crowd of people, some holding clear plastic cups with tea candles inside. Four policemen on bikes stood close by, casting long shadows in the evening sun. “There is a feeling of helplessness,” said vigil organizer Karen Ho. “The person who died was very close in age to myself.” Cheri DiNovo, MPP for Parkdale-High Park, said earlier in the morning at church she prayed for the shooter to turn himself in. “It’s shocking and it’s sad,” she said. “It’s our community’s hurt.” Jennifer Wiechen used to work in the Eaton Centre, a place she describes as home. “I know a lot of people

there,” she said. “It’s a sad day for the Eaton Centre, it’s a sad day for Toronto.” Many people, like Spencer Hotton, a 21-year-old welder, were calling for an end to violence. “We have the right to be safe, we have the right to be happy,” he said. The mall will reopen Monday, but the food court is expected to remain closed. TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Update on victims Police suspect one victim, a 23-year-old man who suffered multiple gunshot wounds to the neck and chest and remains hospitalized in critical condition, may have been a target and also have gang ties. At Sick Kids, police said a 13-year-old boy with a gunshot wound to the head was still critical “but better.” At St. Michael’s Hospital, Moniruz Zaman said his
niece Tasnia Mahmood, 25, was recovering well after being hit in the left leg. A 28-year-old pregnant woman, who went into labour after she was knocked down in the stampede following the shooting, was released from hospital Sunday without having the baby. St. Michael’s spokesperson Cyndy DeGiufti couldn’t say how many months pregnant the woman was. Two women and a man injured in the shooting have been released from hospital. TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Mixed martial arts hits T.O. mats Amateur tournament. AMMA event on the weekend, the city’s first heather Buchan
Four months after the Ontario government gave its stamp of approval to amateur mixed martial arts matches, the province’s firstever such event took place at the Toronto Pro Supershow in downtown Toronto over the weekend. Sixty-eight amateur athletes, including kids as young as 10 from across the country
went head-to-head in the full contact combat sport that combines techniques from boxing, kickboxing, wrestling, jiu jitsu, Muay Thai, taekwondo, karate and judo. Daniel Kechego made history on Saturday, winning the first bout at Ontario’s firstever sanctioned amateur MMA tournament. Kechego, who grew up on the Chippewas of the Thames First Nation, near London, and now trains fulltime in Cambridge, says that despite the sport’s notoriety for violence, he always feels very positive energy. “We all have the same goals and dedication, so we’re all family,” said the 18-year-old. Kechego along with his

final opponent Matt Kippenhuck of Newfoundland have their sights set on turning professional. “This is the
first amateur fight for me and I’d like to get at least five more fights before turning pro,” said a disappointed Kippenhuck. Muzammal Nawaz, president of the Council of Amateur Sport Kickboxing, now tasked with governing amateur MMA, credits the televised Ultimate Fighting Championship with the recent surge in popularity of MMA, saying that since February’s announcement, interest from clubs across the country has been huge. “Now that it’s sanctioned, there is going to be a gradual growth rate of the industry maturing the way other sports do,” says Nawaz.

Cyclists ride into the heart of the city

Good neighbours. Funds raised for orphaned boys Four young girls sat on a bench, cheering on runners and trying to make sense of something a young girl — or boy — never should. “I think it’s good for the boys to be here because it kind of gets their mind off what happened,” said 10-year-old Bailey McLaughlin. What happened shocked a tight-knit community in Oakville and devastated the family and friends of 43-year-old Katherine Newman, who was found stabbed to death last January in her Treetop Terrace townhome.

band Kyle Newman was later shot dead by police, a matter now in the hands of the provincial Special Investigations Unit. Many people were affected. But three lives changed the most — those of the Newman
boys: Thomas, 12, Joshua, 10, and eight-year-old James. “It’s just been awful,” said Liz Benoit, one of Newman’s close friends. On Sunday, a walk/ run fundraiser, “Strides for Friends,” was held at the boys’ old school, Mother Teresa in Oakville, to raise money for their education. It was organized by Newman’s circle of girlfriends, a 20-woman coffee group. “It was all about let’s have fun and let’s have a good day for Katherine,” said organizer Barb Crawford. “And let the
boys know the community is always here. They’re always welcome.” Some 400 people participated in the five- and 10-kilometre events, including the brothers themselves. The total amount raised won’t be known for a couple of days — but relatives say it will surely help. “I’m so grateful,” said Walter Stayshyn, Newman’s father. The boys are now in the care of Newman’s brother, Ted Stayshyn, who lives in Dundas with three kids of his own. torstar news service

Manhunt continues after Magnotta spotted in France Body-parts case. French newspaper reports police were able to trace suspect’s itinerary through cellphone activity
The suspect in the gruesome killing and dismemberment of a Chinese student in Montreal was spotted in France over the weekend but police aren’t ruling out the possibility he could still be on the move. Montreal police confirmed Sunday that Luka Rocco Magnotta was in the European country as recently as Friday. “The man was seen in France, that’s what French authorities told us,” police spokesman Ian Lafreniere told reporters. Lafreniere cautioned that Magnotta may no longer be in France, and wouldn’t rule out the possibility he had since returned to Canada or headed elsewhere in Europe. “He’s someone who has been known to travel, so we’re not taking any chances and we want to keep an open mind,” Lafreniere said. “We’ve received more than 360 tips — it’s huge, people really want to help.”
Murder victim Jun Lin facebook
Magnotta, 29, is wanted in the slaying of Jun Lin, 33, who was a student at Montreal’s Concordia University. Lin’s torso was found in a suitcase that had been left out for garbage collection outside Magnotta’s Montreal apartment last week. Other severed body parts, including a hand and a foot, were mailed to the offices of political parties in Ottawa. French media reported Sunday that personal belongings of the porn actor were found in a hotel in suburban Paris. The reports said police discovered pornographic magazines as well as air-sickness bags from the flight he took to Paris from Montreal. Police believe Magnotta fled to France on May 26. the canadian press
Military. Tories redraw defence spending plans The Harper government is redrafting its extensive, multi-billion shopping list of equipment for the Canadian military in an exercise many observers believe will set more sober expectations in a time of austerity. The revision to the Canada First Defence Strategy is slated to be complete and ready for public consumption by fall, multiple sources have told The Canadian Press. Although Defence Minister Peter MacKay describes the hallmark plan as a “living document,” the reset comes at a time when the government has been hammered politically
over the F-35 stealth fighter, an issue that tarnished the fiscally responsible image that the Conservatives try to project. Defence sources say there is a baseline expectation that the promises made in the original 2008 document will be mostly kept, but whether the government will be buying in the quantities outlined at the height of the Afghan war is another matter. Insiders believe that a redrafted wish list will take some of the bite out of opposition attacks and restore public confidence rattled by the F-35.
A surveillance image provided by Interpol shows a man who authorities believe is Luka Rocco Magnotta at a security checkpoint area. Police are investigating two claimed sightings in France of the Canadian wanted in connection with a gruesome murder in Montreal. interpol/the associated press Federal politics

Zimmerman back in Florida jail George Zimmerman, the neighbourhood-watch volunteer charged with murder in the killing of an unarmed black teenager, surrendered to police Sunday and was booked into jail after having his bail revoked two days earlier. The shooting of 17-yearold Trayvon Martin sparked protests across the U.S., and spurred debate about whether race was a factor in Zimmerman’s actions and in the initial police handling of the case. Martin was black; Zimmerman’s father is white and his mother is from Peru. Zimmerman’s legal team said in a tweet that he was in police custody. Zimmerman’s bail was revoked because the judge said he and his wife lied to the court about their finances so he could obtain a lower bond. On Sunday afternoon, about 40 minutes before the posted deadline to surrender, Zimmerman was listed as an inmate on the jail website. He was listed as being held without bail and having $500 in his jail account. Seminole County Sheriff Donald Eslinger said Zim-

Queen celebrates Diamond Jubilee on River Thames London. More than one million spectators line the London river in the rain to salute Queen Elizabeth II’s 60 years on the throne The River Thames became a royal highway Sunday, as Queen Elizabeth II led a motley but majestic flotilla of more than 1,000 vessels in a waterborne pageant to mark her Diamond Jubilee.
In a colourful salute to the island nation’s maritime past, an armada of skiffs and sailboats, rowboats and paddle steamers joined a flowerfestooned royal barge down an 11-kilometre stretch of London’s river. With a crowd of rainsoaked spectators estimated by organizers at 1.25 million, the pageant was the largest public event in four days of celebrations of the monarch’s 60 years on the throne. Monday, the queen will join thousands of revellers at an outdoor concert beside Buck-
ingham Palace, headlined by pop royalty including Paul McCartney and Elton John. With any luck, the weather will improve. Sunday was dismal and damp, with rain scuttling plans for a ceremonial flypast, but that didn’t stop Union Jack-waving spectators forming a red, white and blue wave along the pageant route.

Tension building in Egyptian election race An Egyptian presidential candidate, Ahmed Shafiq, who was the last prime minister in the regime deposed by last year’s popular revolution, lashed out at his Islamist rival Sunday, warning he and his fundamentalist group would monopolize power and take Egypt back to “the dark ages.’’ It was a sign that the runoff race between Shafiq and the Muslim Brotherhood’s Mohammed Morsi was turning into a bitter contest over who could frighten the voters of his rival more. The two face off in a June 16-17 vote. “The Brotherhood repre-

Pope Benedict XVI celebrated an open-air mass for one million cheering faithful Sunday, capping a weekend visit to Milan viewed as a respite from a Vatican scandal, but fresh leaks of Holy See documents have only fuelled the intrigue. If the new leaks are authentic, the development could indicate that the recent arrest of the Pope’s butler might not have stemmed the scandal as top Holy See officials had hoped. The three-day visit to Milan during a weekend of Catholic events meant to boost support for families was also an opportunity for the 85-year-old pontiff to show he is still firmly at the helm of his church. On Sunday, Benedict announced that he hoped to go to Philadelphia in 2015 for a similar
pro-family event. The weekend had been viewed as a welcome break from the so-called “Vatileaks” scandal. Benedict appeared relaxed and at ease throughout the visit. But the leaks continued even during his trip, with the daily La Repubblica publishing documents on Sunday it said it received despite the butler’s arrest. One of the letters was a high prelate’s complaint that he had not been consulted on the approval of a liturgy for a Catholic group in Spain, while two others reportedly bear the signature of the Pope’s secretary.

Jet crashes into crowded Nigeria neighbourhood, killing 153 Deadly accident. Challenges of life in Nigeria underscored — not enough water available to douse smouldering wreckage A commercial airliner crashed into a densely populated neighbourhood in Nigeria’s largest city, killing all 153 people on board and others on the ground in the worst air disaster in nearly two decades for the troubled nation. The cause of the Dana Air crash was unknown Sunday, as firefighters and police in Lagos struggled to put out the flames around the wreckage of the Boeing MD83 aircraft. Authorities could not control the crowd of thousands gathered around to see the crash site, with some crawling over the plane’s broken wings and standing on a still-smouldering landing gear. Harold Demuren, the dir-
ector-general of Nigeria’s Civil Aviation Authority, said all on board the flight were killed in the crash. Lagos state government said in a statement that 153 people were on the flight travelling from Nigeria’s central capital of Abuja to Lagos in the nation’s southwest. The flight’s pilots radioed to the Lagos control tower just before the crash, saying the plane had engine trouble, a military official said. The official spoke on condition of anonymity as he was not authorized to speak to journalists. Rescue officials feared many others were killed or injured on the ground, but no casualty figures were immediately available. Firefighters and local residents were seen carrying the corpse of a man from one building, its walls still crumbling and flames shooting from its roof more than an hour after the crash. President Goodluck Jonathan later declared three days of national mourning in Africa’s most populous nation. the associated press

Turks protest plan to curb abortion Thousands of demonstrators on Sunday staged the largest protest yet against plans by Turkey’s Islamic-rooted government to curb abortion, which critics say will amount to a virtual ban. Around 3,000 women, ranging from around 20 to 60 years old, gathered at a square in Istanbul’s Kadikoy district. Some carried ban-
ners that read “My body, my choice” and shouted anti-government slogans. Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has called abortion “murder,” and his government is reportedly working on legislation to ban the operation after 4 weeks from conception, except in emergencies. Abortion is presently legal
in Turkey up to 10 weeks from conception. Analysts say Erdogan is pursuing a delicate strategy of beefing up Turkey’s regional power with a large population, while trying to balance the country’s demographics in the face of a high birth rate among the country’s Kurds. the associated press

Ontario man dies after bridge fall 60-metre plunge. Tourist may have climbed over safety fence at Vancouver suspension bridge
“It’s a very tragic incident, but it’s not a police investigation at this point.” Cpl. Richard De Jong, RCMP spokesperson
Metro in Vancouver
Police and staff at the Capilano Suspension Bridge are extending their condolences to the family of a St. Catharines, Ont. tourist who fell 60 metres to his death Saturday. The 30-year-old man, whose name has not been released, apparently climbed over the railing of the suspended Cliff Walk feature at the North Vancouver park but slipped and fell onto the canyon floor below around 5:50 p.m. The victim had been on vacation with extended family. North Vancouver RCMP say
they’re looking into whether the man had climbed over the safety fencing to retrieve a credit card. “We were taking statements from witnesses and heard (about the credit card) as well,” said RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Richard De Jong on Sunday. “It’s a very tragic incident, but it’s not a police investigation at this point as there doesn’t seem to be any criminal intent.” The park was closed for the rest of the day as police investigated and search-and-rescue crews recovered the man’s body. It was re-opened Sunday, and counsellors were on hand to help any traumatized staff.

He also writes that as an actor with many gay friends, he “should know better.” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Investigators are braving dangerous avalanche conditions while removing the wreckage of a helicopter crash in northwestern, B.C. Three people were killed Friday when the A-Star 350 helicopter went down on Sleeping Beauty Mountain near Terrace, B.C. Police say investigators encountered a small snow slide during the recovery of the bodies Saturday.
They say Transportation Safety Board investigators continue to remove wreckage from the crash site. Bailey Helicopters has confirmed that one of the pilots killed in the crash was 45-yearold Peter Bryant. Police say they have now identified all three men killed in the crash but won’t confirm their identities until next of kin have been notified. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Sexy safe-driving ads crash, burn with women’s advocates ‘Bridget’. Face of Halifax Harbour Bridges’ ad campaign offending feminist organizations Some say she’s a confident, crime-fighting avenger, devoted to protecting drivers in Atlantic Canada’s largest city. Oh, and she does it while looking good in heels. But others say “Bridget” — the fictional face of a sexy, safe-driving ad campaign in Halifax — is an offensive stereotype that succeeds only in insulting men and degrading women. In particular, the campaign has crashed and burned with women’s rights advocates, who argue women have for too long been objectified in advertising and the media. “We were quite surprised
and disappointed with the approach,” said Irene Smith, executive director of the Avalon Sexual Assault Centre, a feminist organization in Halifax. “It just seems to me that it’s offensive to many, many women who’ve experienced any form of sexual violence or harassment or been subjected to sexist jokes and innuendoes.” Halifax Harbour Bridges launched the campaign May 14 to raise awareness of speeding, tailgating and texting while driving on the two bridges that span the city’s harbour. “We wanted to have a campaign that’s a little humorous, tongue-in-cheek, and we also wanted the messages to come from a person and not an organization,” said communications manager Alison MacDonald, adding the commission wanted to get people’s attention with “a strong, female character.” The canadian Press

Buffett hopes lunch auction raises big bucks It’s true that Warren Buffett hired the hedge fund manager who won the last two private lunches with him that are part of an annual auction, but he doesn’t expect the event to become a recruiting tool for Berkshire Hathaway. Rather, Buffett says it’s miraculous that he found one of Berkshire’s two new invest-
ment managers through the lunch. He offered Ted Weschler a job after he’d paid nearly $5.3 million over two years to dine with Buffett. Buffett said he just hopes the 13th annual online auction will again raise a significant amount of money for the Glide Foundation, which provides social services to the poor and homeless in San Francisco. Bidding begins Sunday on eBay and continues into Friday evening. Most of the big bids tend to arrive late in the auction. the associated press

Interest rate hike? Experts think not Economic outlook. Friday’s report on Canadian GDP showed a 1.9 per cent growth, well below the central bank’s April call for a 2.5 per cent advance
PEACE OF MIND Available June 1– 21
Is the next move for Mark Carney to cut interest rates? The question would have seemed unthinkable a few weeks ago given that the Bank of Canada governor’s last pronouncement on the subject was to issue a wink and a nudge about coming hikes. The signal-sending language — “some modest withdrawal of the present considerable monetary policy surplus may be appropriate” — contained in the April interest-setting statement sent markets into speculation hyper-drive that rates could be heading north as early as the summer. Tuesday’s upcoming announcement was never in play and isn’t in play now. Economists are as unani-
Carney’s previous signal on interests rates was predicated on the assumption that Canada’s growth rate would smoothly expand at about 2.5 per cent throughout 2012, enabling the economy to return to full capacity in the first half of 2013.
mous as can be that Carney will keep the policy rate moored at one per cent a little while longer. But now the speculation has turned full circle about the nature of the next move, whenever it comes. “The state of the world is increasingly making clear that a rate hike at this point would be premature,” said Avery Shenfeld, chief economist with CIBC World Markets. The revived crisis in Greece, the growing banking crisis in Spain, unresolved debt problems in Italy and Portugal, had already lengthened the odds on Carney moving this fall. the canadian press

After the city council equivalent of a back alley knife fight, plans for transit expansion in Toronto Matt Elliott are finally showing signs of life. firstname.lastname@example.org But there’s a dirty little secret about the light rail lines set for North York, Etobicoke and Scarborough that no one wants to talk about: by funneling new riders onto jam-packed trains on the Yonge subway line, these necessary additions to our transit system could actually make things worse for thousands of already-frustrated commuters. In other words: imagine your current squished subway ride with a few thousand more close-quarters friends. To combat this nightmare scenario, Toronto needs to wade back into a conversation about transit expansion. It’s time to talk about building subways again. No, not the fantasy subways Mayor Rob Ford pushed for. His scheme — never funded — called for all-suburban underground lines that may have lost the TTC tens of millions of dollars in unrecoverable operating costs. Instead, politicians and planners need to turn their attention back to an idea for subway expansion that’s been kicking around since the 1980s. Transit geeks have called it ‘the downtown relief line,’ but former mayoral candidate Sarah Thomson, who’s been putting together a campaign designed to build support for the new subway line, likes to refer to it as ‘the city subway loop.’ It’s a name that better recognizes the line’s far-reaching benefits. As Thomson and other supporters see it, the new route would form a large ‘U,’ covering a vast section of downtown and the suburbs. Starting in the east-end at Eglinton and Don Mills, the subway would head south to connect through Leslieville. From there, it would turn west through downtown, stopping in the heart of the financial distract via Wellington Street. In the west, the line would curve back up toward Eglinton and Keele. It just might be the most important infrastructure project Toronto can build right now. In Thomson’s estimation, this is the only project that can “really put a dent in Toronto’s gridlock,” making for a network that can actually accommodate demand from riders. “Transit systems are like the blood systems in the body,” she says. “If the heart isn’t working well, you get problems in all the other arteries.” By all accounts, the heart of Toronto’s transit system — the ever-crowded Yonge subway — isn’t doing so well. The city subway loop, endorsed by virtually every transit expert in Toronto, looks to be the best long-term fix — especially with expansion looming. But before commuters can board the new trains, the plan needs support from politicians, business leaders and riders. And, most critically, the city needs a workable funding plan that can put construction on track.

‘Little angels’ rush to senior citizen’s side after fall on subway platform News Worth Sharing Media will always have to report on the tough stuff. But we know that Canada is full of compassionate individuals, inspiring projects and stories worth celebrating. Here’s just one. Fay, a senior citizen, has been living in Toronto for more than 30 years — plenty of
time to become somewhat jaded by the rudeness on sidewalks and in transit that typically comes with “life in the big city.” Recently, however, her views changed. On her way to a doctor’s appointment, Fay slipped and fell on the bus platform level of the Sheppard subway station. It was around 4 p.m. — dismissal time for the elementary school cohort.
Two young boys rushed to Fay’s side and hovered over her, fussing, “like a mother hen with her chicks, which was so comforting,” she says. Fay calls the anonymous pair “little angels,” who stayed with her until an ambulance arrived. She was in such shock that she forgot to ask their names, or to say thank you. In addition to her heartfelt thanks, Fay promises “a big
meal with all the trimmings,” if they should ever meet again. Are you Fay’s ‘little angels?’ Email us and we’ll put you in touch. Craig and Marc Kielburger

Corey Hart’s comeback a point of ‘pride’ for singer
Remix. Sunglasses at Night singer gets inspired to remake Truth Will Set You Free and bring its gay-positive message to the forefront When Corey Hart included Truth Will Set You Free on his 1988 album Young Man Running, few among his legions of fans likely realized that the song was intended as a gaypositive anthem of affirmation for anyone struggling with his or her sexuality. For one thing, the Montrealborn pop star wanted it that way. He was intentionally cryptic in the lyrics of the soaring tune, couching the true meaning of its be-yourself-at-all-costs mantra in subtext. The reason for the secrecy? Hart wanted to protect the close friend who had inspired the song, someone whose sexuality was a source of self-doubt and pain. Now, Hart is issuing a dance floor-friendly remix of the tune, one which swaps the contemplative soft-rock of the original for an icy club groove and pulls those themes that coursed under the original’s surface to the fore with new lyrics inspired, in part, by the 1998 murder of gay university student Matthew Shepard. And to make positively sure those newly prominent themes resonate, Hart — who willingly receded from the musical spotlight to raise his children — will mark his first Canadian performance in a decade during Toronto’s Pride festival. “The gay aspect of this song was an important message that I wanted to send out there, especially being a straight man — I thought it was important to say this,” he added. “It was important for me to be at a gay pride event and to go out there and sing the song, and spread the message of the song.” But it certainly wasn’t a typ-

ical journey to get to this point. The idea to re-record his 24-year-old song began with an unsolicited email request from a DJ whom Hart had never heard of. Since launching an official website last year, Hart receives dozens of pitches each week from people who want to remix or sample his tunes, and he almost always says no. This request was different. For one thing, 1Love — whose real name is Paul Todd — wasn’t writing in regard to either Sunglasses at Night or Never Surrender. Hart was intrigued, but it wasn’t until he got to know Todd that he became persuaded to revisit the track. Todd wasn’t a “successful Donald Trump-type” running some big production company, as Hart puts it, but a music lover from Kingston, Ont., who was driving a cab at night to support his four kids. Even though Hart was initially a “little put off” with Todd’s first attempt at tackling a new version of the song, their personalities clicked. By then, Hart had made up his mind to issue his first single in 12 years. “I became attached to wanting the song to come out, wanting the song to be heard — and also wanting to help him.” Hart felt that Todd’s early remix didn’t have enough musicality to it, so he sent it to musician friends in Toronto and Montreal who added textures until the gleaming song found its pulse. Perhaps more important to Hart was the opportunity to re-record his vocals with new lyrics. “I felt (it was) necessary to take the song much further than I had in 1988,” Hart said. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Andy Samberg has wrapped his seven-season run on Saturday Night Live, a spokeswoman for the actor-comedian said Friday. Samberg won’t return as a cast member next season, according to his publicist, Carrie Byalick. Samberg’s exit follows that of SNL cast mem-
ber Kristen Wiig. Like other Saturday Night Live alumni, Samberg will be seen on the big screen. His new movie with Adam Sandler, That’s My Boy, is out this month. Samberg’s SNL highlights reel would feature his satiric rap videos in-

William Shatner’s weird world Where no man has gone before. The 81-year-old icon gears up for another season of Weird or What? From hosting the Junos in Ottawa to a multi-city U.S. tour of his Broadway show, William Shatner has been a man on the move for much of 2012 with a red-hot career that leaves little time for respite. The week ahead is no exception as the Canadian pop culture icon prepares to head to Johannesburg for work with plans to eke out a few days for a photographic safari in the interior. “I’m really excited by that. What I’m not excited about is a 22-hour airplane ride,” the affable actor said candidly from his home in Los Angeles. Despite his stacked schedule, the tireless 81-year-old
continues to have a hands-on role with William Shatner’s Weird or What? which is back for a third season beginning today at 10 p.m. ET on History Television. Shatner is host and executive producer of the series which explores truelife tales of the unknown and unexplainable, and features first-person accounts, expert commentary and reconstructions of the mysterious events in question. In addition to narrating Weird or What? and delivering tongue-in-cheek quips onscreen, Shatner said he’s active behind the scenes, consulting on stories and looking at scripts. “It’s more than just a couple of weeks of working on the show as the wraparound. I’m intimately involved in the show, so there’s no telling how much time that takes,” he said. Tonight’s spine-tingling episode chronicles real-life accounts of human encounters
William Shatner’s back for another round of Weird or What?
with beastly creatures, including a New Jersey mother and son seeing the fabled Jersey Devil. The “massively interesting” stories featured on Weird or What all pique the interest of the inquisitive Shatner. Even as he peruses scripts, Shatner said he tries to seek out his own explanations for unusual happenings. He’s also fascinated by the notions of multiple
matt sayles/the canadian press
and alternate universes and the bending of time. “Since we know nothing and everything is mysterious, the explanations for mysterious events assume an even more unknown quantity,” said Shatner. “So we try to explain scientifically what may have happened in a mysterious event, but we can’t be sure that that is the explanation.” The Canadian Press
Shatner’s Canuck side
Pining for poutine William Shatner, a Montreal native, admits he hankers for poutine while away from his hometown, and said he’d relish the chance

Justin Bieber takes a backstage tumble
Justin Bieber is recovering from a possible concussion and a bruised ego after walking into a glass wall backstage at a Paris concert, according to TMZ. The singer returned to the stage to finish his set, but he reportedly lost consciousness briefly backstage after the show. Local doctors diagnosed him with a concussion. Bieber is taking it well,
though, posting on Twitter, “Just smacked my head and needed some water. All good. I’m Canadian. We are tough.” This isn’t the first time Bieber has been fooled by the translucent nature of glass walls and doors.

SCANDINAVIA’S #1 SELLING CHILI FAT BURNER
Brooke Mueller has landed herself back in rehab, but the situation might not be as bad as it seems. Despite a history of drug abuse and saying “I do” to Charlie Sheen, the sometimes-actress’ lawyers say the stay is a perfectly routine “pre-planned event,” and that reports of a crack-cocaine binge with her ex-husband are entirely false. For his part, Sheen doesn’t know who he agrees with just yet — but that doesn’t mean he won’t attempt to talk about it. Here’s his statement on the matter to TMZ: “I can’t speak to anyone’s opinion or judgement. I was there, they were not, their tepid hearsay is a baseless static drone. “A mantra, their theme. I refuse to be held hostage by their ‘constitutional’ privilege, to judge those who can and who do. nabobs. CS” It took a while, but we

Charlie, this is familiar territory: sleep in, take a shower, throw on a little bronzer and surface in gym clothes with a leafy bag from Whole Foods. This showingup-to-breakfast-in-sunglasses stuff is for amateurs. Has he learned nothing? When asked who will play him in the inevitable biopic, Bill Clinton generously settled on George Clooney during an interview on Piers Morgan Tonight. Now, as for Hillary? He’d like to cast Meryl Streep. We think this was a compliment, but Bill, trust us: assuming you’re still around for a next time, the answer you are looking for here is “Angelina Jolie, Charlize Theron or a young Heidi Klum.”

Caesarean births linked to child obesity New research published in the Archives of Disease in Childhood claims that C-sections may double the risk of childhood obesity. Big news, considering that around one in three babies are born this way in Canada. The study followed 1,255 mothers and babies between 1999 and 2002. The babies were weighed at birth, six months and age three. Around one in four were C-sections, and those babies tended to weigh more than those from vaginal births. According to researchers, there is the “difference in the composition of gut bacteria acquired at birth between the two delivery methods.” Apparently babies born by C-section have more Firmicutes bacteria and fewer Bacteroides bacteria in their guts. (Obese people have higher levels of Firmicutes bacteria.) It is believed that gut bacteria influences insulin resistance, inflammation and fat deposits. Another good reason to avoid elective, non-emergency Caesarean births. JULIE GREEN YUMMYMUMMYCLUB.CA

When yes is better than no First response. Saying no comes naturally when children ask for anything outside of the master plan, but it can stifle development JENNIFER KOLARI
“Mommy, let’s have a picnic lunch under the dining room table. “Why would we do that when we have a table?” I said without even looking up from my emails and piled-up paperwork. “Why not?” asked my daughter. I tore myself away from the screen to look at her. She was flushed with excitement. Even the ends of her hair seemed to be electrified as she bounced from foot to foot, imploring me with her cockeyed smile “Sure, let’s do it!” I said. She was surprised by my answer. We ate, played games and giggled, and I was a much happier woman than I would have been had I remained hunched over my computer. “Thank you,” I said to my daughter. “For what, Mommy?”
“For taking me on a picnic,” I said. “Well, you should thank yourself, too. You’re the one who said yes.” Parents usually go to “no” as a first response when their children ask for anything outside the master plan. “No, I don’t want you to build a cushion fort in the living room right now; it makes a huge mess.” I’ve done it. But if a child wants to build a fort or engage in any other activity that promises a transient mess, why not let him or her? Your little one has an idea and exploring ideas is such an integral ingredient of our kids’ development. How else are they going to figure out what works or how to solve their own problems? Saying “no” comes naturally because we think doing so is without consequences. We’re wrong. Not only do we limit our children’s personal possibilities, we also compromise many opportunities to bond with them and to show them a different side of ourselves. So, next time, consider going straight to “yes.” I guarantee the experience will be as satisfying and memorable for you as if you had planned the whole thing yourself.

Seeking sustainability — in space Space mining. Harvesting minerals and other substances from near-Earth asteroids a new possibility
By the numbers
The number of mineral-rich asteroids close to Earth that spacecraft can reach using less energy than a trip to the moon.
It’s a fact of life in the space age. As vital resources become depleted on Earth, an infinite, inexhaustible treasure trove awaits us — from beyond. Space mining, the harvesting of minerals and other substances from nearEarth asteroids, has traditionally been the realm of science fiction. But now, an innovative company of opportunists is actually trying to make this happen. “Everything is science fiction, right up to the point where it’s science fact,” says Chris Lewicki, president and chief engineer of Planetary Resources. “Our approach is to keep
Asteroids contain huge amounts of iron and water, as well as valuable rare metals like platinum.
our eye on the goal of space resources, and the development of an economy off the planet. There are a number of things that really have only coalesced in the last few years that I think make this a great time to be considering this challenge.” Fuelling this is the dis-
covery of literally thousands of near-Earth asteroids in the past decade. These space-borne hunks contain huge amounts of iron and water, as well as valuable rare metals such as platinum. “These asteroids have only a very slight amount of
gravity,” Lewicki explains. “You don’t really orbit them as much as you dock with them — like a space craft visiting the International Space Station. The ability to leave that asteroid also doesn’t take much energy.” Space exploration requires metal and water
in abundance. But they’re heavy, and it costs tens of thousands of dollars to lift even one pound of material from Earth into space. The short-term goal of asteroid mining is to reach for the stars with materials that are already out there.
“We can take something as basic as water, and turn it into rocket fuel. And the ability to refuel in space will be critically important for travelling around the solar system. And the iron you find in space is so pure, it has many of the properties of stainless steel.” This is a whole new level of sustainability — a long-term future built without relying on Earthbound resources. “We’re looking to make space exploration common place,” Lewicki says. “We’ll end up with a prospecting spacecraft in Earth’s orbit — maybe as soon as five years from now.” For more info: sources.com

The houses that Elio built Giving something back. Generous entrepreneur one day decided to use wealth to aid those stricken by poverty
Guide to life
Elio’s personal mottos: • Put God first at all times and in all things. You will discover that this is true wisdom.
The In-Credibility Factor
• Let love motivate everything you do.
Teresa Kruze email@example.com
• In all relationships follow the golden rule: As you would like others to do to you, do likewise to them.
Elio Madonia was strolling with his wife while on vacation in the Dominican Republic when he turned down the wrong street and walked into a poverty-stricken neighbourhood.
• In all dealings let fairness prevail. • At all times protect your good name (reputation) for it is worth more than gold.
Elio gives his two cents
“We work a lifetime to acquire wealth. Then we look back and say, ‘Is this all there is to life?’” All this experience, talent, skill and knowledge is now wasted on the golf courses of the world.” Elio Madonia
Visit: thesamaritanfoundationdr.com Elio Madonia, seen here on the far left, presents a house to a family in need along with a group of donors who helped to build it.
“I pointed my finger at God saying, ‘Why do you allow this to happen?’ At one point I heard a voice speaking to me. ‘If you are really concerned, why don’t you do something for them?’”
Elio was a pillar of the Italian community in Toronto and had recently sold his interest in several beverage companies. He was also newly retired. The mayor of the town do-
nated a piece of land and Elio went to work, building 25 new homes for the families he had met. That was in 1990. Today, Madonia and The Samaritan Group have built and donated
10 villages filled with 1,200 homes, six schools, five medical centres and 12 churches. “We work a lifetime to acquire wealth. Then we look back and say, ‘Is this all there is

Better to skip break room and skip to the loo Germs. ‘High degree of contamination’ found on 75 per cent of faucets in the rooms where workers go to take a breather CASSANDRA GARRISON Metro World News
Hold on to your lunches and get ready for some nauseating news — a study ‘Dr. Germ’
Desks are dirty, too Professor Charles Gerba of the University of Arizona’s Department of Soil, Water and Environmental Science is a fellow lucky enough to be nicknamed Dr. Germ. His studies of germs in the workplace have shown that the average office desktop has 400 times more bacteria than the office toilet seat. Gerba’s researchers found that a person can leave a nasty trail of viruses on every surface he or she touches — and viruses can live on surfaces for up to three days. They also noted that people who reported cleaning with a disinfectant had 25 per cent fewer bacteria in their offices than those who didn’t. This prompted Dr. Germ to recommend using disinfecting wipes daily on surfaces in the office. New Canada
that looked at germ counts in communal office break rooms found that the popular sites of co-worker lunch hours actually happen to be filthier than the average toilet seat. The research was conducted by Kimberly-Clark Corporation, a company that manufactures cleaning and disinfectant products, and consulted on by University of Arizona microbiologist Charles Gerba, according to Health Day News. Researchers collected more than 5,000 swabs from office break rooms and their findings will make your skin crawl: 75 per cent of break room faucets, 48 per cent of microwave handles, 26 per cent of refrigerator handles, 23 per cent of water fountain buttons and 21 per cent of vending machine buttons have “high degree of contamination.” That makes the break room the dirtiest hot spot that workers touch in a day at the office. The study didn’t specify on the what types of germs were found in break rooms, but in Gerba’s earlier work studying office desk tops, he found germs like diarrhea-causing norovirus, parainfluenza, and drugresistant staph (MRSA). “The two things you spread in a break room are office gossip and germs,” Gerba said. How do these germs keep finding their way into the break room? Through common, everyday occurrences that you probably don’t think twice about, like using a dirty sponge to wipe out your coffee cup. “You’re really

wiping your mug with E. coli,” Gerba said. Another way office employees spread germs is by greeting each other, a common activity when bumping into one another in the break room. “You’d be better off kissing each other than shaking hands,” Gerba said, noting that our palms are loaded with germs that can make us sick.
Do germs spread faster than gossip in your office?

4 SPORTS Belmont Stakes
“It’s all about the horse. As long as the horse is going great, we’re all doing good. If he was battling and then I was getting a lot of stuff from other areas, it would be difficult. As long as he’s doing good, everything else is just talk.” Doug O’Neill, the trainer of Canadian-owned I’ll Have Another, is learning just how difficult it is to avoid all the roadblocks as he prepares his Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner for a chance to become the first Triple Crown champion in 34 years. The 44-year-old trainer shrugs off — at least publicly — the criticism thrown his way for numerous drug and medication violations, including a 45-day suspension issued last week in California. But ever since the colt was put on a van to New York, there have been a number of bumps on the road to the Belmont Stakes, such as a traffic jam on the New Jersey Turnpike. I’ll Have Another will not be able to wear the nasal strip he wore when he won the Derby and Preakness. The horse also went without regular exercise rider Jonny Garcia until a week ago because of visa issues. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Bruins goalie taking year off
Canada holds U.S. to a draw in friendly
Woods matches Nicklaus for wins
Boston Bruins goaltender Tim Thomas says he’ll sit out next season. “At the age of 38, I believe it is time to put my time and energies into those areas and relationships that I have neglected,” Thomas said on his Face-
book page Sunday.
Facing CONCACAF powerhouse United States in a friendly at BMO Field Sunday night, the Canadians adopted a defence-first stance to keep a clean sheet in a 0-0 draw before 15,247 fans.

behind the 16th green, Woods holed a flop shot from 50 feet away that turned bogey into birdie and sent him on his way to a stunning comeback Sunday in the Memorial. It was his fifth win at Muirfield Village, and the 73rd of his PGA Tour career to match Nicklaus at No. 2 all-time. Sam Snead won a record 82 times. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Doughty living his dream with the Kings NHL. Ontario native has been key in Los Angeles’ 14-2 record on run to Stanley Cup The seed was planted in Drew Doughty’s mind long before he got this close to the summit. As a kid who grew up worshipping the Los Angeles Kings, the slick defenceman always envisioned himself helping lead the organization to a Stanley Cup. “Before I was even drafted I had a ton of meetings with the L.A. Kings staff,” Doughty recalled Sunday at the Kings practice facility. “Every single one of those meetings, Dean always brought it up to me: ‘Are you going to be that guy to help us win that first Stanley Cup in franchise history?’ My answer was always ‘Yes.’” The Kings are oh-so-close to making it a reality. With a pair of 2-1 overtime victories over the New Jersey Devils to open the championship series, Los Angeles flew back across the continent with an opportunity to wrap it up at Staples Center. This is bordering on fantasyland stuff for Doughty, who grew up in
London as a Kings fanatic and owned small black-and-silver replica sweaters bearing the names “Gretzky” and “Hrudey.” Those two men were key players in the Kings’ only other previous trip to the Stanley Cup final, which ended with a fivegame loss to Montreal in 1993. The current group has gone further than any team in the franchise’s 44-year history. Doughty’s contributions have been impossible to ignore throughout the playoffs and he’s taken it to another level at the most important time — logging a team-high 32 minutes of ice time in Game 2 and scoring a highlight-reel goal to boot. These are exciting times for a Kings team that has steamrolled its competition and only dropped two games since the regular season ended in early April. It would take an upset of historic proportions for New Jersey to win the series. Of the last six Stanley Cup finals that began with the road team winning the opening two games, five ended in sweeps. The other was over in five games. “We really believe we can win a game tomorrow night,” Devils coach Peter Deboer said. “If we do, it’s a different series.” THE CANADIAN PRESS

Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista gave Toronto starter Drew Hutchison an early lead by blasting a three-run homer in the first inning. It was more than enough support for the rookie righthander, who held the Boston Red Sox to five hits over seven innings as Toronto avoided a sweep with a 5-1 victory Sunday afternoon at Rogers Centre. “Hutch continues to mature right in front of our eyes,” said Blue Jays manager John Farrell. “Staked to a five-run lead, he kept going out and putting up zeroes and keeping the momentum on our side.” The Blue Jays added two

more runs in the second inning to chase Daniel Bard. Toronto (28-26) ended a twogame skid with the victory and moved into a tie with fourthplace Boston (28-26). Both clubs are three games behind the first-place Tampa Bay Rays in the tight American League East.
“Once again I was able to find my arm slot and get into a good rhythm out there,” Hutchison said. “The offence did a great job putting numbers on the board early. I just stayed with (catcher) J.P. (Arencibia) really and the defence was playing great so it was another good outing.” Bautista connected on a 3-2 pitch for his 14th homer of the season. “When he stays with a consistent approach and he has an understanding of what the strike zone is going to be, he’s one of the most feared hitters in baseball,” Farrell said.

Ricky Ray embraces Argos’ high-tempo training camp CFL. 75 players look to win one of 46 spots on Toronto’s roster under new head coach
QB Ricky Ray throws to a receiver on the first day of practice before cuts begin. The team gathered at the upper practice field at University of Toronto, Mississauga Campus. RICK MADONIK/TORSTAR news service
There was a lot of huffing and puffing on Day 1 of the Toronto Argonauts training camp and no one appreciated the high-tempo pace more than quarterback Ricky Ray. “This has been pretty new for me. This is my 10th year and I’ve never been around a head coach who preaches this kind of tempo in a system that is pretty complex like this one,” Ray, 31, said on Sunday. About 20 minutes into first of two practice sessions, head coach Scott Milanovich had Ray running a no-huddle offence with scrimmages soon following. It looked as if the Boatmen were in a mid-season session instead of the first day of training camp at the University of Toronto’s Mississauga campus. But that’s the way things operated in Montreal where Milanovich ran the offence for
the past four years, and the 75 players looking to win one of the 46 spots on the Argos better get used to it quickly. “I think it’s definitely going to benefit us in the long run,” said Ray, the team’s undisputed No. 1 QB, who was traded in the off-season from the Edmonton Eskimos where he threw for 24 TDs and 4,594 yards in 2011. “We’ve seen how Montreal has gotten off to hot starts almost every year and I think it has a lot to do with the tempo they have in their practices, which we’re using now. “The biggest strength of Scott is his communication skills. He’s so direct. He lays everything out in front of you. He doesn’t like to leave anything up to guess work. We know exactly what to expect when we come out here and guys aren’t surprised.” As training camp progresses, one of the big things that will emerge is who will be Ray’s No. 1 target as the team tries to rebound from a lastplace 6-12 finish from a year ago in the East.
“Jim Barker (GM) and his staff have done a great job getting people in here to compete and try to take jobs. That’s the nature of pro football. The veterans and rookies better be going full speed on every play.” Head coach Scott Milanovich

You might be Overpaying for Car Insurance There are ways to save without impacting coverage Each insurance company charges a different rate to insure the same driver with the same exact coverage – and these rates vary considerably. By not shopping around for car insurance, you could be paying hundreds, or even thousands, of dollars more than you should. Insurers use their own claims experience to determine their rates and each company will have a different history with
each driving profile and car combination. This could mean that you are overpaying for car insurance – and with so many insurance companies, odds are you may not be currently insured with the company that offers the best rate for your driving profile. The car you drive, where you live, where you drive, and your driving record are all factors that may affect your insurance rate. While most of these items are under your control, others such as the insurance company’s experience and corresponding rates are not. One insurance company may

charge more for being insured in your postal code, while others may charge more for insuring sport cars. Understanding all of these considerations and knowing that each insurance company charges different rates will help you find the best car insurance rate that suits your needs. The best way to save on your car insurance is to compare your insurance rate to those offered by other companies. But it can be extremely time consuming to compare the rates individually and brokers only offer rates from 4 to 5 different companies. Web sites like
InsuranceHotline.com make it easy to compare your rate against the lowest available rates within their network of over 30 insurance companies.

Top-seeded Djokovic shaky in French Open victory Rally. Top-seeded man survives scare to come back from two sets down

Novak Djokovic won even though he felt like nothing was working. A much less-known player named David Goffin lost, but he walked out of Roland Garros feeling like the luckiest guy in the world. It was a strange, grey Sunday at the French Open that didn’t always fit the script — and even included an early exit by the top-seeded woman,
Victoria Azarenka. The top-seeded man, Djokovic, punctuated the weirdness, in need of his third career comeback from two sets down to post a fourth-round victory over 22nd-seeded Andreas Seppi of Italy, 4-6, 6-7 (5), 6-3, 7-5, 6-3. “Today, I played a very poor match,” Djokovic said. Goffin, in the draw as a “lucky loser” after falling in qualifying, found himself with a one-set lead against none other than his childhood favourite, Roger Federer, before falling 5-7, 7-5, 6-2, 6-4. At the end, the 21-year-old got a hug from the
16-time major champion that left him smiling. “I’ve had an extraordinary week,” he said. “I went through the quallies with a bit of luck. Then I played my best tennis. I played three great matches. The icing on the cake was to play here with Roger.” Other than the fact that he grinded it out and won, and that his hopes of winning his fourth straight Grand Slam tournament — the “Novak Slam” — are still alive, Djokovic conceded there wasn’t much to build on from this win, his 25th straight in the majors.
