Eaton Centre shooting suspect faced weapons charges before Christopher Husbands. Suspect was out on $4,000 bail and under house arrest

Less than five weeks before the Eaton Centre shooting, accused murderer Christopher Husbands was in a Hamilton courtroom facing nine weapons

charges and five counts of breaching bail. Husbands, 23, who is facing two counts of first-degree murder and five counts of attempted murder, walked free in Hamilton after a prosecutor withdrew the nine weapons charges, which involved a loaded .40 calibre handgun. At the time of the mall shooting on June 2, Husbands

was out on $4,000 bail and under house arrest for an outstanding sexual assault charge from November, 2010. Husbands has been detained for the Eaton Centre shootings pending his next court appearance Aug. 25. On April 23, Husbands was in Hamilton court before Superior Court Justice James Ramsay on a 17-count indict-

ment. He was facing nine weapon charges, two counts of obstructing a police officer, five counts of breaching his bail conditions and one count of possession of marijuana. The weapons charges relate to a March 29, 2010, incident in Hamilton in which Husbands was found sleeping in a 2004 Nissan Maxima. Hidden in a vent of the vehicle was a Heck-

ler and Koch .40-calibre handgun. The firearm magazine was capable of holding more than 10 rounds. By the end of the hearing, prosecutor Carey Lee would withdraw the weapons charges and proceed on just five counts — two of obstructing a police officer, two of breaching a bail condition and a single count of possession of marijuana.

Husbands pleaded guilty to those five charges. He did not have a record, according to a court transcript. Torstar News Service left numerous messages for Lee, 50, who is on a previously arranged, six-month sabbatical. A pair of letters left in the mailbox of his Hamilton home have gone unanswered. torstar news service

Cuddly creatures. Toronto Zoo names new inhabitants There were no “cute fights” but there were lots of smiles on Thursday as the Toronto Zoo announced the names of its youngest residents. The zoo’s three rare white lion cubs, two penguin chicks and lone Babirusa piglet were all officially named following an online vote for the public’s favourite monikers. All six of the animals were born in captivity: White lion cubs Names: Fintan (male), Makali and Lemon. Meaning: Fintan, from the Irish “Fionntán,” means “little fair one.” Makali is Swahili and means “daring,” while Lemon was named for her bright yellow coat. African penguins Names: Chupa and Matata Meaning: Neither name comes from any particular meaning, but Cynthia Shipley, manager of public relations and events for the zoo, suspects Matata may be homage to the Disney movie The Lion King’s song Hakuna Matata. Babirusa pig Name: Muna Meaning: Muna comes from the Swahili word for “hope,” appropriate considering babirusas are critically endangered and Muna, a female, will be able to breed in about a year’s time.

Schedule ‘out of sync.’ Tunnelling was held up four months for probe into worker’s death TTC officials don’t know whether they will be able to meet the scheduled late-2015 opening of the $2.6-billion Spadina subway extension into York Region. They have yet to determine how much time they can recover from the months lost to an investigation that followed the death of a young construction worker on Oct. 11, 2011 at the York University work site. It will be fall before the impact of that delay is known and publicly reported. “The schedule is out of

sync, and we lost time because of this fatality…. The real issue is whether we can recover this lost time or not,” said TTC chief capital officer Sameh Ghaly. An Ontario Ministry of Labour spokesman confirmed that a Do Not Disturb order — which requires an accident scene remain untouched — was in place between Oct. 11 and Feb. 16 on one sector of the construction site. Meantime, two of the TTC’s four giant tunnel-boring machines — affectionately known as Torkie and Yorkie — are sitting idle near the Schulich School of Business on the York University campus. Work called compensation grouting, which protects the foundation of the business school, is now proceeding. But that has to be finished before

Crash. TTC driver charged after bus slams into downtown building A TTC bus driver has been charged with careless driving after a bus collided with two vehicles and slammed into a building on Queen Street West. The driver, 55, was headed north on Peter Street on July 22 when the bus collided with a Nissan headed west on Richmond. The bus continued along Peter, striking a taxi. It finally came to a halt when it crashed into a building on the west side of Peter at Queen. Three people, including the driver, were taken to hospital with minor injuries.

The driver was charged on Thursday with failing to stop at a red light and careless driving and is expected to appear in court in September. Police are aware of what caused him to lose control but would not reveal that information, a sergeant from Traffic Services said. He confirmed that neither alcohol nor drugs was a factor. It is still unclear why the driver ran the red light, police said. The driver will also face internal discipline from the TTC, a company spokesperson said. torstar news service

Toronto couple’s app puts voice to photographs A new app promises to let budding memoirists sidestep the tedious task of typing and tell their life stories in photographs by recording their own voice with each photo. The new app — SPOKEnPHOTO — developed by Toronto husband-and-wife team Hamid Arabzadeh and Lynne McEachern allows users to record their voice on top of photos on a smartphone, then send them directly to family and friends. McEachern, co-founder of Spoke Technologies, says her

inspiration came from trying to update her long-distance parents about her children’s fast-changing lives. “My husband and I have been developing SPOKEnPHOTO for the last year and are so proud to see Canadians get excited about adding voice to their photos this summer,” she said. “My kids are growing up so fast, so I use SPOKEnPHOTO to share special family moments via my iPhone with relatives abroad.” metro

Premier willing to recall house to get teachers to work Quoted Labour. McGuinty says province can’t afford from the pay hikes as it struggles “Everyone Supreme Court to the with $15B deficit government’s own

Premier Dalton McGuinty reminded teachers Thursday he has the power to recall the legislature for an emergency session before Labour Day in order to introduce legislation that will force them back to work. Education Minister Laurel Broten angered unions, school boards and teachers on Monday by saying the Liberal government will use legislation to force labour peace if they don’t sign contracts by the end of the month. There are no details on what that legislation will be. But before the Liberals do that, McGuinty stressed he is “hopeful” the school boards

expert, Don Drummond, has said legislation will be overturned and leave us paying more in the long run. The premier ... seems more interested in playing politics than getting real results.” NDP MPP Jagmeet Singh

can do what Ministry of Education officials couldn’t — negotiate agreements with the province’s teaching unions. So far, only the Ontario English Catholic Teachers Association (OECTA) and a small support-

staff union have worked out agreements. “We are running out of runway. School is about to begin. I am calling on all of our school boards and teacher groups to do everything they possibly can at their level now to see if they might secure agreements based on the road map we set out, based on our agreement with OECTA,” McGuinty told reporters while visiting St. John’s Catholic School in Kitchener. On Sept. 1, if deals aren’t in place, all the existing contracts roll over and the teachers will all get pay hikes. The Ontario Public School Boards’ Association is balking at the challenge the premier has given them. It is August, many are on vacation and now the province wants the boards to reach 400 collective agreements. torstar news service

Refugees headed back home with aid from feds

Sharryn Aiken

torstar news service

At least 128 failed refugee claimants have jumped at the chance to return home with a little help from the federal government. Since the Assisted Voluntary Return and Reintegration program was launched on June 29, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) has interviewed 508 people, referred 294 to the International Organization for Migration (IOM), which admin-

isters the program abroad, and enrolled 128. Ten failed claimants have already left for their home countries. Under the program, Ottawa offers up to $2,000 and a oneway plane ticket to any refugee claimant denied asylum who will voluntarily go home. Failed applicants go back without losing the ability to return legally, and receive money to re-estab-

lish themselves; meanwhile, the government gets prompt

removal and saves the cost of tracking and deporting failed claimants. European countries offering a similar program have had low participation rates, pointed out Sharryn Aiken, a law professor at Queen’s University. “So this sounds like a pretty decent uptake,” she said. “But I can’t fathom why so few were finally accepted in the program.”

It is a mystery. A CBSA spokesperson said it gauged eligibility of applicants and then referred them to the IOM. The IOM did not respond to requests for an interview. Processing times vary from case to case, but the IOM aims to return individuals to their home countries within 30 days of their eligibility interview with the CBSA, said a spokesperson. torstar news service

Rafferty appeals life sentence Tori Stafford killing. Appeal papers appear to have been filed from Kingston Penitentiary Michael Rafferty, the man sentenced to life for the killing of eight-year-old Tori Stafford, is appealing his conviction on grounds the judge failed to properly instruct the jury. In the appeal received by the Court of Appeal for

Ontario on July 26, Rafferty also says the “jury failed to apprehend the evidentiary requirement to convict for firstdegree murder.” If a new trial is ordered, he would like a trial by jury, Rafferty wrote from prison. Rafferty missed the 30-day deadline to appeal his conviction but asked for an extension, attributing the delay to an “inability to use the telephone to contact legal counsel.” It is not uncommon for those sentenced to life to appeal.

Rafferty, 31, was sentenced May 15 in the abduction, rape and murder of the eight-yearold Woodstock girl. Tori went missing on April 8, 2009, triggering one of the largest manhunts in Canadian history. Rafferty and TerriLynne McClintic, then lovers, were arrested a month later and charged. Tori’s remains were found on July 19. McClintic pleaded guilty to first-degree murder and was sentenced to life in prison in April 2010. Rafferty’s trial, with shocking twists and turns, lasted 10

weeks. The jury took about a day to render a guilty verdict. But presiding judge Thomas Heeney was criticized for excluding character evidence. The jury never heard about evidence seized from Rafferty’s laptop, including child pornography, torture videos and a movie about the abduction of a little girl. The jury also did not hear that Rafferty liked choking women during sex. Heeney later defended his decision, saying the evidence was legally inadmissible. Torstar newS service

Disgraced staffer returns to the fold

Annan resigns from Syria mission

A Liberal staffer who resigned in disgrace after splashing the lurid details of a Conservative cabinet minister’s messy divorce all over Twitter in response to the Harper government’s Internet snooping bill has resurfaced with the party. Former Parliament Hill aide Adam Carroll is now working at Liberal party headquarters. A spokeswoman wouldn’t divulge details about his new gig. A steady stream of tweets disclosing Public Safety Minister Vic Toews’ divorce file spurred political intrigue on Parliament Hill earlier this year, as speculation abounded over the identity of the person behind the Vikileaks30 handle. Carroll quit his job in the Liberal research bureau once he was identified as the source of the account. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Frustrated by Syria’s escalating civil war, Kofi Annan announced Thursday that he will quit his high-profile role as special envoy to the country at the end of the month, giving reasons that amounted to scathing criticism of world powers’ failure to unite to stop the chaos in the Arab state. Annan told reporters that when he accepted the job, he wanted to help find a peaceful solution to the crisis, to stop the killings of civilians and human rights abuses, as well as to place Syria on a path toward political transition. Annan told reporters that he cannot go on when the Security Council doesn’t fully back him, particularly because of the stalemate between its five veto-wielding members: Russia and China on one side, the U.S., Britain and France on the other.

RIM to launch PlayBook for faster networks Research In Motion is launching its new PlayBook tablet for advanced networks that will have a faster Internet experience, giving the Canadian tech company an updated product to sell before its new smartphones come to market. RIM’s latest PlayBook will be launched next week — in Canada first — and is designed for wireless networks with speeds equivalent to highspeed home Internet services on land lines. The 4G LTE PlayBook tablet computer will be available Aug. 9 at Rogers, Bell and Telus — Canada’s three largest carriers. RIM said Thursday the price of the new PlayBook, which has 32 GB of memory storage, will depend on the region and provider. But Telus said it will sell for $549.99. The new PlayBook is also ready for corporate email systems and keeps business information secure and separate from personal information, RIM said. However, PC Magazine analyst Sascha Segan said any anticipation is for RIM’s next generation of smartphones called BlackBerry 10.

Restructuring • There are reports that RIM will shutter its few companyowned North American retail stores and reveal details of 3,000 jobs to be cut under a previously announced restructuring plan by the BlackBerry maker. • A source familiar with RIM’s retail presence said Wednesday that the company’s last existing storefront in Michigan will soon shut down, as well as nine airport locations.

“Consumers are past the PlayBook now and they’re waiting to see what happens with BlackBerry 10,” said Segan, lead analyst for mobile devices. The BlackBerry 10 smartphones, expected to be even more like mobile computers, are due out in 2013, about a year later than RIM had announced — leaving the company with an older inventory of smartphones to sell. In addition to a faster Internet experience with LTE (LongTerm Evolution) technology, RIM’s new PlayBook will give

users clearer and smoother video streaming, multi-party video conferencing capabilities and fewer delays when there are multiple video game players, Segan said. The original PlayBook was launched in April 2011, but sales have been slow and RIM has discounted some of the models amid stiff competition. RIM is phasing out the 16 GB PlayBook which was retailing for as little as $199 to focus on higher-end models. Segan noted the latest PlayBook was supposed to be out last fall and was announced in February 2011. RIM said the new PlayBook has the tablet’s latest operating system software and also allows users to manage messages from Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. The built-in calendar and contacts apps is integrated with social networks, providing users with information about their contacts at their fingertips. RIM said its latest PlayBook will be available in the coming months from carriers in the U.S., Europe, South Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean. the canadian press

snoop lion, a silver medal and twitter shenanigans

Land of Arctic aliens


Fifty Shades of parody. My fave parody Neil Morton of Fifty Shades of Grey Metro is housed on Twitter, @50ShedsofGrey, which already has more than 70,000 followers since launching. It describes itself as “erotica for the not-toomodern male.” Sample tweet from this ‘shed porn’: “We tried various positions — round the back, up against a wall . . but the bottom of the garden was the only place for a really good shed.” Lol. The Campaign. Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis made a stop in Toronto Monday to promote their political comedy The Campaign (out Aug. 10). They pulled out all the stops — including a red carpet screening of the movie and a visit to the Hockey Hall of Fame, where they showed up not in a limo, but on a Zamboni. Great campaigning Canadiana style. @stats_canada. The hilarious new Twitter account @stats_canada pokes fun at Statistics Canada — and the whole notion of demographic statistics and what relevance they have to Canadians. With tweets like “70% of Canadians believe Gordon Lightfoot is a yoga position,” and “At any given time, 3 million Canadians are on a Timmie’s run,” this is a 99.9999 per cent must follow. Bengals can’t tweet. The NFL’s Cincinatti Bengals have been banned from tweeting during training camp at the stadium by their coach Marvin Lewis to try and help them focus while they work out the next few weeks. Holy social media crackdown! What’s next? No phone calls either? I don’t get it. Big Brother. A national casting call for the first Canadian edition of Big Brother began this week. The show will launch on the Slice network this winter, and applicants can apply at I couldn’t apply to the upcoming Bachelor Canada (I’m married), but maybe I’ll take a crack at this — or hold out for a Real Househusbands of Canada. Jonah Lehrer. The writer resigned from his staff writer position at The New Yorker after he admitted to making up Bob Dylan quotes for his best-selling non-fiction book Imagine. Where will Lehrer and the book go from here? The answer, my friend is blowin’ in the wind. But a hard rain’s a-gonna fall. Snoop Lion? 40-year-old Snoop Dogg announced this week that, 1) he is longer rapping (he’s switching to reggae) and 2) he’s changing his name to Snoop Lion after a spiritual and artistic rebirth while in Jamaica where he was given the new moniker by Rastafarian priests. This is one heck of a mid-life crisis. Milos Raonic. In an epic four-hour long Olympic tennis match, Canada’s tennis star came out on the losing end to France’s Jo-Wilfried Tsonga  6-3, 3-6, 25-23. The third set was three hours long. As sports journalist Bruce Arthur tweeted during the match, “17-17, Tsonga serving. What a glorious moment it will be when Raonic or Tsonga’s son wins this match one day.” Brady Bunch. Fans of the 70s hit show The Brady Bunch are salivating at the prospect of the show making a comeback. With Vince Vaughn as executive producer, CBS is apparently developing a reboot of the cult comedy. If this goes well, will remakes of Three’s Company, Welcome Back, Kotter and WKRP In Cincinnati be waiting in the wings? Canadian medals. In perhaps one of Canada’s most exciting Olympic-medal wins this week, our relatively inexperienced men’s eight rowing team made a dramatic surge in the final 500 metres of the 2,000-metre race to overtake the hometown Brits and win a silver. Almost better than gold. Beauty moment, eh? Baby mama drama. A new love and relationship reality series with the working title Single and Pregnant is casting in the United States for single and pregnant women. It’s being cast by the team behind Jersey Shore.

Niccolò Bonfadini/Solent


Stunning photo of otherworldly landscape Who is guarding the frozen north? Judging by this mysterious photograph, these giant ‘ice worms’ sprouting out of the ground. This incredible yet surreal picture actually shows trees buried in thick snow, on a landscape located close to the Arctic Circle. Metro spoke with Italian photographer Niccolò Bonfadini on his eerie, yet striking image. Metro

Behind the lens

• Bonfadini took this stunning shot while camping alone in Finland’s beautiful Riisitunturi National Park. “I was blown away by the otherworldly landscape, everything was white as far as the eye could see. Everything was frozen,” he told Metro. • The young photographer of course faced many challenges in this barren frozen world. “What made the trip harder than average was the fact that I was completely alone. But I prefer it like that, I don’t like crowds,” he said. “My backpack weighed about 30 kilograms. What I ate

consisted of powdered, freeze-dried food. And the temperature can go as low as -40 C.” • “The morning I took this picture was a very special one,” Bonfadini said. “I had slept with my tent on top of a hill to watch the sunrise. An eerie mist was forming around the trees, enhancing the mysterious atmosphere. The three trees were standing right in front of me. They immediately appeared to be like sentinels to me. That is why I decided to name the photograph ‘Sentinels of the Arctic.’” He added: “Some thought they were volcanic eruptions and clouds. To me they seemed to be alive like

Niccolò Bonfadini submitted frozen people.” • “I used both a medium format analog camera and a Canon DSLR camera. Some graduated neutral density filters placed on the lens helped me achieve this result. By placing the filter’s darker side against the sky it helped to retain more details in the lighter parts of the image by keeping their luminosity down.”

Kate Beckinsale in Total Recall. THE CANADIAN PRESS Reel Guys


All chase, no sci-fi

Total Recall. Too busy to be boring, this remake is a decent action flick, but falls flat as a paranoid sci-fi mind-bender

place. I loved the original, Richard, but it had a nice, slow build and was a sly “mindbender” as you call it. I don’t know why they had to attempt a remake, unless it was to see what would happen if you put a real actor in the lead. But, sorry, it’s Schwartzenegger 1, Farrell 0.

Richard: Mark, the original Total Recall was simultaneously beaten up on release for its level of violence and praised for its complex story. The same can’t be said for the remake. The body count is still high, but the story plays more like a high-tech version of The Fugitive than a scifi mind-bender. It’s a pretty good chase movie, but the scifi falls flat.

RC: Farrell is much more of an everyman than Arnold was, but I thought he pulled off the running, jumping, shooting and stabbing well enough. I was more taken, though, with the female characters. The original treated women like window dressing but here Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel are given meaty, action-packed parts. Beckinsale uses all the tricks she learned on the Underworld movies, kicking butt and taking names in every scene she’s in, and while Biel won’t need to wake up early on Academy Award day, she hands a physically energetic performance.

Mark: As does the storyline, the characters, the dialogue, and most importantly, the satire. It’s too busy and kinetic to be a boring movie, but you don’t care much about why all the carnage is taking

MB: I liked Biel, but Beckinsale’s one expression wore thin on me quickly. I did like the production design, though it was clearly influenced by Blade Runner. I liked the elevators that move vertically and horizontally, the flying cars were great (and actually looked credible), but the army of bots looked so much like George Lucas’ droids that I expected Jar Jar Binks to show up in a cameo. RC: Ha! Beckinsale may only have one expression, but it’s a pretty good one. As for everything else, it seems to me the movie values violence and action above all — more than story, humour or even the legendary three-breasted hooker who is glimpsed for all of two seconds. This movie clearly appreciates bullets over breasts. MB: Good to know where you stand on that one, Richard! I wouldn’t call it a bad movie, but a missed opportunity.

Set in a dystopian world where most of the planet is uninhabitable, Farrell plays a troubled factory worker desperate to escape a life of grinding drudgery. Without telling his wife (Kate Beckinsale) he goes to Rekall Corp. to have a virtual vacation. They sell implanted memories, like video games for the mind. But something goes wrong and soon our hero is thrown into a deadly world of intrigue where he can’t be sure what is real and what isn’t. •

Richard: •••••

Mark: •••••

Philip K. Dick, who wrote the original story decades ago, was a master of the paranoia missing from the remake, and I’m pretty sure the master would not approve.

16 Drama



360 Director. Fernando Meirelles Stars. Anthony Hopkins, Rachel Weisz


The Queen of Versailles

Celeste and Jess Forever

Director. Lauren Greenfield

Director. Lee Toland Krieger

Good people sometimes do bad things is the prevailing message behind 360, the latest film to attempt to create an interlocking cast of characters à la Babel. But where those films used flawed characters to convey a broader message, director Fernando Meirelles (City of God) seems disinterested in saying anything else. Frost/ Nixon scribe Peter Morgan’s script is airtight and the performances, which pair Hollywood A-listers like Anthony Hopkins and Rachel Weisz with lesserknown faces, are all strong. But with little to rally behind, Meirelles’ actors are left flapping in the wind.



Ruby Sparks Director. Jonathan Dayton, Valerie Feris


Girlfriend Boyfriend

The Invisible War Directors. Kirby Dick, Amy Ziering

••••• WEEKEND, August 3-6, 2012

••••• Just when you thought you couldn’t possibly muster sympathy for a spoiled billionaire, here comes The Queen of Versailles — a stirring documentary that examines a time-share mogul and his family just as they begin building a 90,000-square-foot house. But tones shift after the economy collapses and Lauren Greenfield catches the dangers of living beyond one’s means like a fly on the wall. Or in this case, like one of Jackie Siegel’s stuffed dead dogs on the mantle. Steve Gow

ian Gormely

Stars. Rashida Jones, Adam Samberg

••••• While Celeste and Jesse Forever may assist in converting Rashida Jones (TV’s Parks and Recreation) into a mainstream movie star, it certainly does little for Adam Samberg. Co-written by Jones, the quirky premise of a married couple trying to divorce while keeping a close friendship starts strong but soon zeroes in too much on its female lead. Still, this amusing comedy (albeit a bit uneven in tone) should relieve many moviegoers from the exhausting onslaught of straight-ahead big-budget summer blockbusters.

Stars. Joseph Hsiao-Chuan Chang

••••• The new fantasy from indie darlings Paul Dano and Zoe Kazan uses an ancient story — the myth of Pygmalion who fell in love with one of his creations, only to have her come to life — as inspiration to explore an even older issue of how men and women relate to one another. It’s a refreshing fantasy that grounds itself in reality as much as possible. Dano and Kazan, a couple in real life, bring great chemistry along with acting chops, elevating what could have been a grungy male fantasy into a sweetly observed look at loneliness and love. richard crouse

Steve gow

••••• The love triangle is standard romantic drama stuff, but here it is given more room to breathe — 20 years, in fact. The film charts the three-way crush between two boys and a girl, and the twist is that Boy A has a secret yen for Boy B, though Boy B prefers the girl. Two decades later, against a politically charged 1990s Taipei backdrop, their threesome comes to head. Girlfriend Boyfriend is anchored by a strong performance by Joseph Hsiao-Chuan Chang as the initially struggling Liam, a boy whose love for another boy has to be kept mum. Chris Alexander


Stars. Kori Cioca, Susan Burke, Ariana Klay

••••• The Invisible War opens with the statement: “All statistics in this film are from U.S. government studies.” According to this data, more than 20 per cent of female veterans have been sexually assaulted while in service. The U.S. government has had a wealth of (shocking) data on sexual assault and rape in the military for decades and yet nothing has been done to stop it. The documentary clearly aims to change this. The facts this film presents are alone worth the price of admission. But the honest, powerful testimony of the victims make it a must-see. REGAN REID


“A magical, MODERN-DAY LOVE STORY, one with razor-sharp edges and a tender heart.”

Comedy Quoted

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days Director. David Bowers Stars. Zachary Gordon, Steve Zahn

••••• In the latest adaptation of Jeff Kinney’s popular books, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days focuses on lazy Greg Heffley’s aimless summer vacation. Most notably, he tells his parents he got a job to cover up sneaking into a country club. Harmless but hardly inventive, the film may improve upon the franchise’s previous outings, but without a solid narrative Wimpy Kid seems as restless as a hyperactive adolescent on summer break.

“I would say really the only time it came into play was the three years of trying to get the movie made. Being an executive producer and a co-writer and knowing it was such a great part for me to be able to play, it was hard to keep taking the blows of the thing getting set up and then the thing crumbling. It was tough, but once I got on set, for me my only challenge that I wanted to tackle was doing a good job in the role and carrying the film, so I had to really shut all the other stuff down, you know?” Parks and Recreation star Rashida Jones, who co-wrote and appears in the new film Celeste and Jesse Forever NED EHRBAR

Bob DiPiero isn’t a household name, but he’s probably had more No. 1 hits than the country music superstars who’ve fronted his songs, like T:10”McGraw, Brooks & Dunn and Strait. But it isn’t the fact that

he’s had, oh, 15 No. 1 hits and countless other charting songs that surprises DiPiero. It’s that he’s still in the game. “The thing that most amazes me is that I’m still doing this 30 years from the first song that I ever had recorded, which was by Reba McEntire. That’s like three lifetimes in a songwriter’s career,” DiPiero half-jokes. “It’s my love and my passion, so I just feel lucky every day I still get to write songs.” The CMA board member also helmed the annual songwriter’s tour, basing it on Nashville’s Bluebird Cafe’s

in-the-round songwriter sessions, which similarly feature the people behind the hits with big stars often dropping by. Last summer, Kenny Chesney sat in on a tour stop and this year Carrie Underwood does likewise. “Kenny really has a songwriter’s heart. That’s the key to these shows, especially when we have these iconic performers like Kenny and Carrie. They are both songwriters, they are both involved in writing their songs and choosing their songs. They take a seat at the shows with the right credentials.”

Macaulay Culkin ‘dead in six months’? Monica Weymouth

Macaulay Culkin hasn’t been doing much these days, but we just assumed that was because he’s Macaulay Culkin. The National Enquirer, however, claims that the actor has spent the past few years in a heroin hangover that’s only getting worse. “He’s been hooked for a year and a half, and his drug of choice is either heroin or oxycodone,” a source tells the paper (which, yes, we read — you’re welcome). “Mac is surrounding himself with junkies and lowlifes. It’s a real tragedy.” Despite intervention, a friend tells the paper he’s not listening, hence the photos of him looking gaunt and dishevelled: “His closest friends fear that he’ll overdose or his heart will explode. If he doesn’t get help and enter rehab now, he could be dead in six months.” Culkin’s team, however, says there’s no truth to the story. “The report ... is not only categorically without merit, but it is also impossibly and ridiculously fictitious,” his publicist tells E! Online. If Culkin is struggling with addiction, we sincerely hope he gets the professional help he needs. If he isn’t, well, we still sincerely hope he gets the professional help he needs — starting with a shave and ending with a trip above ground.

Bad girl chef Nadia G heats up your backyard Long weekend. The Food Network star offers her tips for throwing a memorable barbecue get-together DAN CLAPSON

Our favourite bad girl in the kitchen, Nadia G, who is currently in the process of creating season three of her hit Food Network cooking show, Bitchin’ Kitchen, has two cookbooks under her belt and a style that’s all her own. If anyone knows how to throw a rockin’ backyard barbecue this long weekend, it’s Nadia! She imparts some great summer party inspiration. What are some of your goto summertime dishes? I have a bunch of go-to dishes, but I like updating the hotdog by grabbing spicy Italian sausage and using minced giardiniera as the relish. Combing mustard with maple syrup (is also great for) giving the hotdog experience a new twist. Cooking for idiots. What is one thing someone can throw onto the grill that’s virtually impossible to screw up? Anyone can cook anything on a BBQ in foil. That’s always a great trick. You’re not using the direct heat and you can give the food the time it needs to cook completely. How can someone add a simple Italian flare to


With all due respect to wine fans, whiskey lovers are the ultimate liquid nerds who collect, study, analyze and keep to the traditions of their chosen spirit. Much of that tradition has been tossed out the window this summer with a variety of flavoured whiskies hitting store shelves. For all you aficionados who just called 911, they’re bringing a whole new audience to whiskey. While the Scots have held off for now, North American distillers have jumped on the infused booze bandwagon with the zeal of an audience at a Justin Bieber concert. Now, before you go all Lemon Gin on me, I’ve tried them all. Know what? They’re quite interesting, particularly Jim Beam’s Red Stag Black Cherry Bourbon ($26.25 - $28.49). Though the name alone may be enough to send some American whiskey buffs into convulsions, I was quite charmed by its nice balance of natural black cherry flavour and the bourbon’s charred, upfront personality. Cocktail options abound with the fruit aspect of the booze holding its own against many a mix. That said, I prefer it served ice cold straight from the fridge all by its lonesome.


Top 5 Tips

Here are the backyard barbecue tips Nadia thinks everyone should know. •

Playlist Essentials. You can’t go wrong with Girl Talk. They’re like your own personal DJ.

Simple Dish. Fish with lemon, olives and cherry tomatoes wrapped in tin foil.

Drink. Mojito. Quick to make and hard to screw up.

Dessert. Sorbet topped with vodka. Vodka tastes good with everything.

Safety first. Extra sunscreen. People start having a few drinks and before you know it, you have sun burnt guests.

barbecuing? I like to make a simple Italian ‘salsa’ (bruschetta). It tastes delicious with meat or fish, with tortilla chips, crostini, even on roast potatoes, whatever it is! If you had to pick: sangria, mojito or beer and why? I’d have to say a mojito. I’m just a simple girl getting kicked out of bars in threeinch stilettos. When things have too much flavour, like sangria, it can be a bit much with all the fruit and the wine, you also got some soda in there. You need to tread lightly. Parties can get a little rowdy sometimes. Any advice on how to politely remove a drunken idiot?

Food Network chef Nadia G. SUBMITTED

How to remove a drunk person? Yeah…I’d have no one left at my backyard party! Ha, ha, ha. What kind of party is that?

If you could invite anyone to a summer barbecue, who would it be and why? Anyone? Chris Farley ‘cause he knows how to party!

A rockin’ good Grilled Apricot and Feta Salad 1. Vinaigrette: In food proces-

sor, blend 4 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, 3 tbsp of champagne vinegar, honey, vanilla extract, and garlic clove. Fold in the poppy seeds, sea salt and pepper.


This recipe serves four.


Apricots: Heat a barbecue or a grill pan to medium-high. Baste the apricot halves with extra-virgin olive oil. Using tongs, sear the fleshy side of the apricots for 90 seconds, and then turn over to sear the skin side for 1 minute more. Remove them from the heat, and let cool.

3. Pickled onions: Heat a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onion slices, pour in the remaining champagne vinegar, stir, and simmer until the onion slices turn bright pink, about 30 seconds. Remove from the heat and let cool slightly.


Divide the apricot halves equally among 4 plates. Sprinkle each serving with 1/4 cup of crumbled feta and a heaping tablespoon of pickled onions. Drizzle with the vinaigrette, and garnish with fresh mint leaves. COURTESY OF NADIA G

Capture summer in your cabinet Canning. Think about the months ahead while you’re snacking on fruit this summer It’s hard to think of canning in July, when you’re still hungover from strawberries and busy licking sticky peach fingers.

But Marisa McClellan — the crafty Philly canner behind popular blog Food in Jars and its new spin-off cookbook — urges you to think of the months ahead while you’re snacking your way through the farmers market. “If you’re looking to eat more locally and want to eat fruit in January, you have to can,” she says.

As we enter the peak of “canning season” — April through October — we checked in with McClellan for a little fresh inspiration. Peaches Go ahead and pick too many — McClellan’s site is packed with peach recipes. Try a simple peach butter, or dress up traditional canned peaches with a little bour-

bon or brandy. Okra “Okra pickles are a great thing for people who aren’t sure about okra — you reduce its slime factor, and it turns into something really crisp and delicious,” says McClellan. Kohlrabi Poor kohlrabi is famous for

being the last one picked during the CSA box draft. But with the help of a food processor, this little cabbage-like veggie is the perfect jar candidate. “It’s a really good one for pickling,” says McClellan. “It’s super crunchy, and when you toss it with a vinegary liquid it just becomes bright and crisp and all of those things that you want in a pickle.” Apricots “Apricots are one of those fruits that don’t taste spectacular plain, but when you

cook them into jam, it’s spectacular,” says McClellan. “Pick up a quart, cook them with a little bit of sugar and you’re done.” Whatever you do with jams, don’t alter the sugar ratios. “If you see a jam recipe and you think that’s too much sugar, you can’t change the recipe,” she warns. “If you slash the sugar, you end up with syrup. It’s not as if you’re eating a whole jar of jam in one sitting — or, well, you shouldn’t.” MONICA WEYMOUTH/for metro

Does loyalty mean better insurance rates? Drivers should look past loyalty as a means to saving money. Many drivers assume that staying with the same insurance company for a long period of time leads to the best car insurance rates. While this may be true for some people who have a good driving profile and obtain loyalty discounts, it is not always the case. The rates charged by different insurance companies to insure the same driver, with

the same car, for the exact same coverage, can vary by hundreds and even thousands of dollars. And with so many insurance companies providing car insurance in Ontario, odds are you are not currently insured with the company that offers the best rate for your driving profile. One of the ways insurance companies try to keep customers around is by offering perks to loyal customers. Often insurance customers believe that by looking for a new insurance policy they will wind up paying more since they’ll have to forfeit any loyalty discounts and perks they have earned. In

many cases, however, a lower rate with another insurance company could save you money because the rate difference offsets any earned loyalty rewards from your current company. There is no risk to taking some time to shop around and get insurance quotes. And your current insurer will not know that you are looking, unless you tell them. Comparing car insurance quotes will give you a better idea of how your current rate stacks up in comparison with what is available at another company. Insurance quoting sites like can help by providing

CFL. Aware of his stats, rushing leader says his main goal is to help his team win games

Mobile sports

Cory Boyd is making the most of his chances this season. Through five games, the Toronto tailback is the CFL’s leading rusher with 424 yards and is averaging a solid 5.7 yards per carry. That’s not too shabby considering Argonauts head coach Scott Milanovich figures his team has only run the ball effectively in two of its contests to date. “I’m not disappointed,” Milanovich said following

Thursday’s practice. “We know we can do it. “It’s just like everything else, we need to be more consistent. We had a couple of opportunities where we could’ve run it well and we have to take advantage of that.” Toronto’s aerial attack, spearheaded by veteran quarterback Ricky Ray, has played a major role in the club’s offensive resurgence in 2012. The Argos (3-2) sport the CFL’s second-ranked passing attack with Ray, the former Edmonton Eskimos star currently the league’s secondleading passer.

attack that’s ranked fourth overall, averaging 98.8 yards per game. However, after running for a season-high 168 yards in a 36-27 road loss to Hamilton on July 14, Boyd has rushed for a combined 107 yards on

27 carries in Toronto’s last two contests, both wins. Despite that, the six-footone, 213-pound Boyd tops the CFL rushing ranks, 57 yards ahead of impressive Hamilton rookie Chevon Walker. And while Boyd is typical of most running backs in wanting the ball as much as possible, he says his main goal is helping Toronto rack up wins. “I’m always looking to make a big play whenever I get the ball,” he said. “If it’s one time, two times, however many times I’m just trying to capitalize on every opportunity. “I’m already ready. It just takes one carry for me to get right.” THE CANADIAN PRESS

Jim Furyk finally made some birdies — a lot of them — for a 7-under 63 to take the lead Thursday in the Bridgestone Invitational.

RAY FINDING HIS WAY JUST FINE New Argos QB thriving under coach Milanovich; Stampeders have gone Johnny Knoxville; and Roughriders fans need to take a deep breath

A 37-year-old flag-bearer. A 39-year old cyclist. Sailors in their 40s. A retirement-aged show jumper. Canadians might be tempted to think the Olympics are pushing the boundaries of middle age this year, given the vintages of some of the athletes representing this country at the London Games. Scan the code for the story.


Dan Toth

Toronto Argos: QB Ricky Ray needed about five minutes to feel comfortable running Scott Milanovich’s Argos offence. Ray has completed 69% of his passes and is second in passing yards with 1,542 yards. Ray has also thrown twice as many TD passes as interceptions, a ratio that will make you a winner most weeks.

B.C. Lions: We’ve gone from asking ‘What’s wrong with the Lions?’ to tagging them one of the top teams in the CFL through five weeks. After losing two straight, an impressive win in Calgary has them perched among five teams tied for the top record at 3-2. Parity reigns as 10 games this season (50%) have been decided by four or fewer points while the usually dominant West Division holds just a 6-4 record against the East. Edmonton Eskimos: QB Steven Jyles is under more pressure to perform than any

player in the CFL. That’s what makes his fumble last week in Winnipeg that prevented a possible comeback win over the Bombers so glaring, despite posting his best game statistically as an Eskimo. Maybe Jyles is trying too hard to make Esks fans forget Ricky Ray. Calgary Stampeders: Why do so many talented Stamps players act like jackasses? This week it was Jon Cornish’s turn, criticizing the play of his offensive line after his putrid performance in rushing for minus-1 yard

on six carries in a loss to B.C. Even though he later apologized, it’s an unwritten rule that you never trash the big men who get paid to make you a star. Saskatchewan Roughriders: After gassing huge fourth-quarter leads in backto-back games, some Rider faithful are calling for the firing of defensive co-ordinator Richie Hall, and the banishment of QB Darian Durant. Good gawd people, give your heads a shake. The Riders are 3-2 and tied for first in the West. What did Green fans

expect, an undefeated season? The team’s current record is a more accurate reflection of who they are. Hamilton Tiger-Cats: It’s still very early and the Tabbies are only 3-2, but three straight wins and some sensational play from Henry Burris makes him an early-season favourite as the best off-season acquisition. Burris leads the league with 15 TD passes and has earned offensive player of the month for July, making the Cats’ off-season swap with Calgary look like a stroke of genius for Steeltown’s finest.

Andreanne Morin clutched her Olympic silver medal, as if remembering every early morning training session and aching muscle that preceded it. “For me this is the culmination of my 12 years of rowing,” said the 30-year-old from Quebec City, after Canada’s secondplace finish in the women’s eight Thursday. “I’m talking to you and holding onto this (medal) quite tightly, because it’s the proof, the material proof of what I’ve done. “It’s a lot about the journey and what you live with these teammates. That’s how I look at it today. It was an exceptional race, it really was.” The Canadian women lost to an exceptional team. The U.S., champions in Beijing, have not been beaten in six years. But it was a photo finish in May when the two met at a World Cup in Lucerne, Switz-

erland, where the U.S. won by just 0.03 seconds. On Thursday, the powerful Americans led all the way to win in six minutes 10.59 seconds. The Canadians charged at them down the stretch, posting the fastest splits in the final 1,000 metres, but could not peg them back and finished in 6:12.06 ahead of the Dutch in 6:13.12. “I have to take my hat off to the U.S. crew,” said Peter Cookson, Rowing Canada’s high performance director. “We literally did everything we could to try to win the race. “When you look at all the training we did and all the physiology work we did, all the recovery work we did with that

group. And they’re an unbelievably great group of women in our Canadian boat. And for them to get beat, that must take a really great crew to beat them.” Cookson noted the women’s eight had come from “not a great place in 2009,” when they barely made the final at the world championships. Now they are the team keeping the U.S. on their toes. To a woman, the Canadians were beaming after the race. They were also emotional, knowing a changing of the guard is inevitable after the Olympic quadrennial. But there were no regrets. The women clambered over the fence in front of the friends

So we have no regrets even though it wasn’t necessarily the colour of medal we had hoped for.” Added Winnipeg’s Janine Hanson: “Silver’s great. We can’t be disappointed with that at all.” The medal was the second for Canadian rowers here. The men’s eight won silver behind Germany on Wednesday.

Phelps bests Lochte for his first solo gold in London

Michael Phelps added to his medal collection with his first individual gold of the London Games, and handed Ryan Lochte a double disappointment on his rival’s final night in the pool. Phelps set the tone right from the start Thursday to become the first male swimmer to win the same individual event at three straight Olympics, capturing the 200-metre individual medley for his 20th career medal — and 16th gold. He touched in 1 minute, 54.27 seconds, just off his winning time in Beijing, but still good

enough for gold. Lochte settled for silver and Hungary’s Laszlo Cseh took the bronze. So a farewell games that started as a bit of a disappointment for Phelps is definitely looking up. He’s now won two golds and two silvers in five races — not up to his standards when he went 8-for-8 in China four years ago, but a fitting capper to a brilliant career that still has two more events to go. As soon as Phelps finished off Lochte, he hopped out of the pool and headed to the nearby diving well to warm down, knowing he still had a semi-

final of the 100 butterfly before the night was done. He was the top qualifier in that one, setting up a rematch in Friday’s final against Milorad Cavic — a Serbian who still seems to think he got to the wall first in Beijing but lost by a hundredth of a second. “Going into every call room, I said it’s my last semifinal or my last prelim or my last semi of the 100 fly, so tonight is the last semi ever,” said Phelps, who plans to retire from swimming as soon as he touches the wall for the final time in London. “We’re kind of chalking up all

SPORTS: London Games WEEKEND, August 3-6, 2012


Bolt’s chance to take over London Track-and-field. 2008’s 100-metre champion wants to be ‘living legend,’ but will face big test in countryman Blake By the time Usain Bolt’s showboating, record-breaking, gold-gobbling act on the track got revved up at the Beijing Games four years ago, Michael Phelps was already firmly established as the star of those Olympics. Nothing anyone did — even Bolt’s unprecedented sweep of the 100, 200 and 4x100-metre relay with bestin-history times — could possibly steal the spotlight from Phelps and his eight-gold performance in the pool. Now it’s a different story. The first week of the London Olympics left a noticeable vacancy on centre stage. As if on cue, up steps Bolt, the effervescent Jamaican sprinter who comes in with the most to win, and lose, as the 10-day athletics meet begins Friday at 80,000-seat Olympic Stadium. Bolt wants nothing less than to become a “living legend” and is well aware

that repeat victories in the two individual sprints will put him there. Of course, he’ll need to be better than countryman Yohan Blake, who upset Bolt in the 100 and 200 finals at the Jamaican trials. Win or not, Bolt is guaranteeing a good show. “Hands down. For sure,” he said. “I’m thinking this could easily be one of the fast-

est 100 metres anybody has ever seen, because these guys have shown a lot of potential

throughout the season. There are guys that have been running fast, especially because

it’s an Olympic year.” Bolt was coasting, thumping his chest before he crossed the finish line when he set the world record in Beijing at 9.69 seconds. At the world championships a year later, he lowered it to 9.58. Bolt and his coach, Glen Mills, both say a 100-metre run in the 9.4-second range is possible, but only if the weather in London co-oper-

ates. The forecast for Sunday’s final calls for murky skies with a 30 per cent chance of rain. Beyond Bolt and Blake, nearly every main contender in the marquee event has a good story to tell. There are Americans Tyson Gay (oftinjured, still in search of an Olympic medal) and Justin Gatlin (2004 Olympic champion, back in 2012 after a four-year doping ban), and another Jamaican, 29-yearold Asafa Powell, a former world-record holder who is still fast.

Hayden back in pool hours after win Celebrating an Olympic medal all night instead of swimming another race was not an option for Brent Hayden. Hours after winning his bronze in the 100 freestyle, Hayden was back on the start blocks in the 50-metre freestyle Thursday.

He didn’t make it to the final, but he still felt it was worth doing. “I’m in an event in the Olympics,” Hayden said. “You’ve got take that opportunity. For me, it’s never going to come around again. “I knew I was an outside shot, but I knew if I did nail my race, I knew that I would have actually had a shot to be in the final and maybe even go for a podium.”

Brent Hayden prepares for his 50m freestyle semifinal Thursday.

Crossword: This, That, and the Other


March 21 - April 20 You will find it hard to get through your “to do” list today ­­— your heart is just not in it. In which case, why not take the hint and relax for a while? It’s not as if you haven’t earned it.


April 21 - May 21 You may be tempted to cut a deal that gives you less than you know you are worth but you are strongly advised not to do it. If you give in once, you will be expected to do it again and again.


May 22 - June 21 You seem to be at peace with yourself at the moment, which isn’t something you can say too often. Wherever you go and whatever you do, nothing will faze you. If only every day could be this easy!


Sept. 24 - Oct. 23 Find a way to escape the daily grind, if only for a few hours. You need to spend some time by yourself to get your thoughts in order and decide what you ought to do next. Clear a space for your mind.


Oct. 24 - Nov. 22 Take time out from your busy schedule today to get to know someone who is sending you signals you cannot ignore. Could it be the start of a new romantic relationship? Yes. But it’s not the only possibility.


Nov. 23 - Dec. 21 How often do you say the three magic words “I love you”? Not often enough. Make it your number one priority today to remind the most special person in your life that you still care deeply for him or her.


June 22 - July 23 If you are a typical Cancerian you will want to do something creative today, something in which you can involve both your head and your hands. It will be more exciting if you do it with like-minded people.


July 24 - Aug. 23 You are in a generous mood at the moment — you want to share your good fortune with the whole world. That may not be possible but you can share it with a special few, who in turn will share it with others.


Dec. 22 - Jan. 20 You may be a bit of a workaholic by nature but you can sense it is time to slow down. As the week draws to a close you should draw a line between work time and play time ­­­­— and favour the latter.


Jan. 21 - Feb. 19 You are in love with the world and everyone in it. Well, OK, maybe not everyone, but most people, the good people, the ones who share your desire to make the world a better place. Very few don’t.
