Outsourcing bus-cleaning jobs


TTC chair Karen Stintz said the union did not respond to an offer to meet the TTC’s price of $18 an hour, from the $27 cleaners currently earn.

record ridership with 528 million riders projected for 2013, each rider will require a 78-cent subsidy. Seventy per cent of TTC operating revenue comes from fares, among the highest recovery rates of North American transit systems. At the same Toronto Transit Commission meeting Thursday, an angry transit workers union president Bob Kinnear warned executives that there will be retribution for the TTC board’s decision to outsource its bus cleaning. Councillors on the Toronto Transit Commission approved the contracting-out of 159 jobs in a bid to save $4.29 million a year. Kinnear wouldn’t rule out any job action, but said, “We are going to do everything we can to ensure there’s no disruption to the riders.”

A five-cent hike in the price of a token — $2.50 on a monthly Metropass — has been approved in principle by the TTC as it seeks to close a $28-million gap in its operating budget. The commission says the Jan. 1 increase would provide $18 million, leaving $10 million still to be found. “No one likes fare rises. Ideally we wouldn’t have to raise the fares,” said TTC CEO Andy Byford. “But

there’s basically four pressures on the TTC budget. Those are fares, subsidies, efficiencies and service levels. I don’t want to cut the service levels.” The TTC hasn’t yet finished its budgeting, but the fare increase is based on the assumption that the city won’t be increasing its transit subsidy this year — leaving it at the $411 million it gave the city this year. Although the TTC is attracting

Scathing report

Mayor’s staff ‘compromised’ civic appointments: Ombudsman



Ontario has two West Nile-linked deaths confirmed Two people in Ontario have died after contracting the West Nile virus in what provincial public health officials have called the worst outbreak in a decade. Health officials in the province’s southwest attributed the death of a 71-year-old man in WindsorEssex County to the virus Thursday. Public Health Ontario says there have been 220 confirmed and probable cases of West Nile in the province as of Sept. 25. That includes a 74-yearold Toronto man whose death two weeks ago has been attributed to the virus. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Rosedale students walk out for teachers Students at Rosedale Heights School of the Arts send a message in support of their teachers on Thursday. JESSICA SMITH/METRO

‘STOP BILL 115’. Student body president used Facebook to organize the protest — which attracted about 200 students JESSICA SMITH

Yelling slogans, waving signs and showing passing motorists “STOP BILL 115” written on their stomachs, Rosedale Heights School of the Arts students held a walkout on behalf of their teachers Thursday. Student body president Raevv’n Leedham organized

the walkout protest on Facebook. About 200 students came out, while others stayed in class. Leedham said the protest isn’t about students losing their extra-curricular activities — which have continued at her school — it’s about their teachers’ rights. “People come to Canada to have the freedom, the rights to be what they can, what they aspire to be, and I feel that the Ontario teachers have been stripped of their rights as Canadian citizens,” she said. “They’re not being treated with the respect that Canadians should be treated with. Every single teacher and every single citizen in Canada has a right to negotiate and fight for the right to what they believe

they deserve.” Leedham said the students are protesting because the teachers can’t right now. “Without naming names, a lot of teachers have been very supportive of this, not directly telling us you should walk out, but they heard about it and said it was very thoughtful and they really ap-

preciated what we are doing and showing them we really care,” Leedham. Sabio Emerencia-Collins said he was protesting to protect his teacher’s rights because they’ve supported him. “Rosedale has an array of spectacular teachers, from every single department I’ve been involved in,” he said. “Every single teacher I’ve encountered has been outrageously supportive of me as a student and my fellow students.” Students across the province, including in Ottawa, Brampton and Vaughan, have protested to support their teachers. The “Putting Students First Act,” formerly known as Bill 115, received royal assent on Sept. 11.


Interference from Mayor Rob Ford’s office that “compromised” the process for citizen appointments to city boards and agencies included an attempt to stop staff from targeting “diverse” candidates in recruitment ads. That’s the conclusion of city ombudsman Fiona Crean in a scathing report released Thursday — the results of which, compiled through dozens of interviews given under oath, were quickly contested by Ford and his allies even as they accepted all four of Crean’s recommendations. Crean found, among other things, that a councillor pointed at staff during a closed-door meeting and shouted, “I’m going to get you,” after they raised concerns over the fact his favoured candidate had a conflict of interest.

That’s just one scene from David Kim’s Gangnam Style parody video, which features the York University biology student shaking his thing across campus to the tune of the wildly popular and infectious Korean pop song. Kim, 20, shot the video with a couple of friends this week and uploaded it to YouTube Tuesday. To their mutual shock, it had garnered more than 90,000 views by Thursday morning. The video shows Kim dancing among blank-faced students on an escalator and atop the counter of a Tim Hortons. He’s seen approaching bystanders in a cafeteria while gyrating ridiculously, and at one point climbs onto the hood of a car at a stop light. The song by Korean rapper Psy has garnered more than 291 million views on YouTube since July. Torstar News service

Local competitive dancers will flock to Toronto’s Guvernment entertainment complex this Sunday for a chance to break into the industry at the city’s second World of Dance festival. “World of Dance is all the aspects of urban dance under one roof for one day,” said Nami Sugimoto, the Toronto show’s project manager. Toronto’s eight-hour hiphop and R&B event features two dance competitions evaluated by a panel of industry-renowned critics, including judges from Canada’s So You Think You Can Dance reality show, MuchMusic personalities, and the founder of Essence dance crew. Participating dance groups underwent a gruelling selection process. They submitted their best choreographed moves on tape to audition for

a spot. “It’s quite the competition,” said Sugimoto. “It’s not just your local backyard dance group that you kind of put together. These are guys that are serious about what they do.” After all, money and fame can be the competition’s reward. Winners from the under-18 youth division walk away with $500 and those from

the upper division snag $1,500. Many of last year’s participants performed as guests at other World of Dance events, said Sugimoto, giving them even more exposure before industry insiders. The competition hits multiple stops across Canada, the U.S. and Europe. This will be the event’s second time in Toronto and it’s a stop Brendan Lee, the president of the show’s Can-

adian contingent, fought for, said Sugimoto. He recognized the booming dance industry in the city, she said, and the amount of talent. Last year, more than 3,000 spectators watched the familyfriendly event. Tickets are still available for this weekend’s festivities at vendors across the city or can be purchased for $30 at the Guvernment on Sunday.

• Chaotic Crew, last year’s runner-up in Toronto’s youth division, will try to reign supreme. • So You Think You Can Dance Canada judges Tré Armstrong, Lisa Auguste and Teya Wild will be present, as will Mike Cameron, dancer for the Michael Jackson Immortal tour, and Kojo (Tuch) Mayne, dancer and choreographer with Do Dat Entertainment.

Cancer survivor gives back with ‘Pink Love’

Molly Scott lets her niece Stella tattoo her head back in May 2011 to “lighten up the situation.” contributed

The CIBC Run for the Cure didn’t mean much to 33-yearold Molly Scott when she tagged along for the first time three years ago. But that all changed just one year later, after the Toronto resident unexpectedly came across an unusual lump in her breast by “fluke.” “I was in the backseat coming home from my grandmother’s 100th birthday. I had a scratch, the way you would on your forehead, elbow, whatever,” says Scott. “For whatever reason, I scratched right on top of a lump. It sounds crazy, but

when I tell my story, I feel that I was fully directed to this spot.” Scott describes the next two years as being the darkest of her life. She was young, career-driven and had all the hopes and dreams someone her age might have, but being diagnosed with Stage 2B cancer left her with an uncertain future. She had a fountain of love and support coming from her friends, family and colleagues, but Scott couldn’t help but feel alone during her battle with cancer. “It was lonely. Anyone who

But she rallied all her friends and family, all 30 of them, and raised $40,000 in total. Her group “Pink Love” became the runner-up for the top team fundraiser. With her cancer officially in remission, Scott is getting her life back on track, focusing on work and family and looking to give back to those who helped her along the way. Phoebe ho/For Metro

Youth empowerment takes centre stage Phoebe Ho

Expect scores of excited teenagers and some deafening screams coming out of the Air Canada Centre Friday. With three additional locations on the eight-city tour this year, this is going to be the biggest We Day event since it first started back in 2007, according to Craig Kielburger, co-founder of the charity Free the Children’s. “It’s the first time We Day is going to be national, that’s the most fundamental difference. We have almost doubled the number of We Days; it’s incred-

ibly exciting,” he says. The event might be growing in size, but We Day’s core message is the same. Kielburger says it’s all about empowering youth to take action “so kids don’t feel alone when they stand up for a cause, and to give them support to make their dream possible.” Nearly 20,000 Toronto high school students will get free access to the show, as long as they commit to take action on at least one local and one global issue via Free the Children’s year-long programs. They’ll get to see some highprofile motivational speakers and performers, including Jennifer Hudson, Al Gore, Martin

highly anticipated speakers is Spencer West, a man who is sharing his story after losing both his legs at an early age. “Spencer West, he’s a young

man who has no lower body. He walks on his hands,” says Kielburger. “This summer he climbed Mount Kilimanjaro, did it on his hands to raise money for clean-water projects in Africa. So many students followed him on Twitter ... it’s amazing.” Getting to see the impact of their actions is also a big part of the show. This year, Wilson Meikua and Jackson Ntirkana, here in Toronto for their second We Day, have travelled all the way from Kenya to show students how their own actions have changed their lives. Having now completed his rite of passage in Masai warrior training and a university

degree in wildlife and botany, Meikua’s got all sorts of experiences since attending a Free the Children school back home. One of the most memorable ones was his first time standing in front of tens of thousands of students on stage at We Day. “That was a very big number for me,” he says. “It was my first time to speak to such a big crowd like that. But when I was in high school I was the president.... There was about 700 kids in school, I had to talk to them every morning in assembly. But that first time talking to so many people like that, it was very cool. It was one of the best experiences.”

‘There’s something different about the energy on We Day’ With We Day set to roll in Toronto on Friday and seven other cities across the country over the next few weeks, there’s been a lot of buzz about some of the high-profile speakers and performers headlining the show. This year’s host for We Day Toronto, MuchMusic VJ Jesse Giddings, who has been an integral part of the show, shares his experience with Metro.

Waterloo, and just standing up on stage for that first time and seeing thousands of young people there and just feeling that energy and realizing that everyone was there for the same reason — they all wanted to make a difference, find a way to get more involved in the community and world.

What’s been the most memorable moment for you since you joined the We Day team three years ago?

It’s definitely different. I hosted the MuchMusic Video Awards earlier on in the summer. I was standing up there, there were ... probably 10,000 youth on the street and parking lot, filling

And knowing everyone is there for the same reason and everyone there is wanting to be inspiring others or to be inspired, it’s just such inspiration and encouragement. It gives me hope that with the next generation, they are standing up, they do have a voice. You’re a designer, model, actor, musician and a VJ. What do you enjoy doing most?

of that, and this year not only do I get to host a live event, I get to host the broadcast TV version. And on top of that, Free the Children allowed me to design a T-shirt last year ... (and) again, I’m asked to design

This was pretty much it. I was a dreamer from a young age. My mom, she had her work cut out for her — I never stopped dreaming. I wanted to act, design clothing, start a company. I can remember I wanted to start a clothing company and do something positive for my school. It’s something that I’ve always dreamed of doing and been very blessed and fortunate to be here now.

Advice to dreamers like you?

First is to think outside the box. You’ve gotta be creative, you’ve gotta be willing to do what other people aren’t. When I was auditioning for MuchMusic, I knew I had to do what other people weren’t wiling to do — that was practising in front of a camera every day. I pretended like I was on MuchMusic. I’m sure my roommates thought I was crazy, but I knew ... a lot of people wouldn’t give it that kind of commitment. That’s always been my strategy, to be willing to do and put in more work than anyone else. phoebe ho/for metro

Law. Woman wins landmark claim case against insurer The Ontario Court of Appeal has overturned a lower-court ruling that would have severely restricted benefits awarded to victims of serious accidents. The case centred on an accident claim filed by Anna Pastore, a 60-year-old Toronto woman. She was struck by a car on the street while visiting in Montreal for a wedding in November 2002, according to her appeal lawyer Joseph Campisi Jr. Pastore suffered significant pain and impairment as a result of her fractured left ankle.

A medical team concluded Pastore had a catastrophic impairment consisting of a “marked impairment in her activities of daily living.’’ But her insurance company refused to accept this finding. Roger Oatley, senior partner with a Barrie-based law firm acting in the case on behalf of the Ontario Trial Lawyers Association, called the ruling a “big deal for accident victims because considerably more people will be able to access the benefits that they need.’’ torstar news service

The two men left the residence and the 16-year-old male was able to escape.” Police are appealing for the public’s help in finding two suspects wanted in the case. RCMP Sgt.

When we developed our vision for the TTC of “a transit system that makes Toronto proud,” we knew that there was a lot to do to make that aspiration a reality. I have said that it will take up to five years to transform and modernize the TTC,

SCOTIABANK NUIT BLANCHE The TTC is pleased to provide extra bus, streetcar and subway service to this year’s Scotiabank Nuit Blanche beginning Saturday, Sept. 29 until the morning of Sunday, Sept. 30.

which I think is realistic given the scale of the challenge. But I’m certainly not saying that you, my customers, should wait that long to experience improvements. This first year has been primarily about laying the foundations. We have developed business goals and key performance indicators to describe what we need to achieve and measures to track our progress. We have set in place a framework to hold everyone to account and to make our performance more

transparent. And we have started to make inroads into the cost base of the company. But I was equally determined to deliver what I call “quick wins” to show that we are serious about customer service: refurbished washrooms, cleaner vehicles and, coming soon, debit and credit facilities at all TTC stations. There’s still more to do on customer information and to reduce the number of short-turns. Over the next few years, we will complete

BAY LOWER The TTC’s Bay Lower Station was originally used by the public when the Bloor-Danforth subway, between Keele and Woodbine Stations, opened on Feb. 25, 1966. The station was constructed to allow the TTC to operate a fully-integrated subway so that customers could travel without transferring between the Bloor subway line and the Yonge subway line, providing they boarded the correct train. However, in September of the same year, a decision was made to close Bay Lower, as this integrated system resulted This shot was for the movie Resident Evil: Retribution. in many problems.

In 2007, and again in 2010, the TTC productions, including Johnny Mnemonic starring Keanu Reeves, conducted major track work on the Don’t Say a Word starring Michael Bloor-Danforth line near St George Station. As a result, subway trains, both Douglas, NY Minute with the Olsen twins, and, last year, Total Recall with eastbound and westbound, diverted to Colin Farrell and Jessica Biel.

Furlong fights back against abuse allegations Denies any wrongdoing. Former VANOC head threatens legal action over newspaper story

Canada-U.S. Current, former cops accused of smuggling food over border A southern Ontario police force has charged one current and one former officer in a “largescale” scheme to smuggle cheese and other food items into Canada. Niagara Regional Police say cases of cheese and other foods were purchased in the U.S. and smuggled into Canada, without declaring the items or paying duty. The items were then prepared for distribution to restaurants in southern Ontario. The suspects are from Fort Erie, Ont. They face a slew of charges including: conspiracy to commit an indictable offence, false or deceptive state-

Ambrose. ‘Sex-selection abortion’ played role in supporting motion The federal cabinet minister responsible for the Status of Women has offered some explanation for why she voted in support of a pro-life motion. Rona Ambrose says on Twitter that she’s long been worried about discrimination against girls through “sexselection abortion.” She stunned observers Wednesday when she rose in favour of a motion to strike a committee to examine the definition of a human being.

John Furlong reads a statement on Thursday during a news conference called to address allegations of abuse. daryl dyck/the canadian press

John Furlong vows to take legal action against the Georgia Straight newspaper after it published a story alleging he physically and mentally abused aboriginal children as a teacher at a Burns Lake school. The story features allegations, from alleged victims’ signed affidavits, that Furlong, then 18, abused students in physical-education classes he ran at Immaculata Elementary School. The former head of the Vancouver Organizing Committee for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games (VANOC), alongside lawyer Marvin Storrow, addressed media Thursday afternoon to issue a denial. “I want you to know I

categorically deny absolutely any wrongdoing and I believe that the RCMP, in looking into this matter, will discredit the complaint entirely because it just did not happen,” Furlong read from a prepared statement. “I feel that my character has been recklessly challenged and I have no choice now but to proceed with legal action.” Furlong did not take any questions at the hastily called press conference in Vancouver, where the Order of Canada recipient now works as executive chairman of the Vancouver Whitecaps soccer club. RCMP released a brief statement confirming they’re “aware of the allegations involving John Furlong and are investigating.” The Georgia Straight issued a brief reply to Furlong’s statement. “The story was backed up with eight sworn affidavits. Marvin Storrow did not make Mr. Furlong available to respond to questions from the journalist, Laura Robinson,” the weekly paper states.

Guilty murder verdict after 10 years A decade of uncertainty ended with a cry of anger from a convicted murderer in a Beijing courtroom on Thursday as Li Ang lashed out at the court that found him guilty of the 2002 killing of his girlfriend, Amanda Zhao. The couple were studying in the Lower Mainland and lived together in Burnaby, B.C., when Zhao’s body was found. “It’s unfair. I’ve been wronged,” yelled Li after he was sentenced to life in

prison, according to a relative of Zhao’s who was in the courtroom. The now 28-year-old Li was convicted of strangling Zhao in 2002 and stuffing her body in a suitcase before dumping it at Stave Lake on the outskirts of Vancouver. Due to a lack of evidence, Li was released by Canadian authorities and fled Canada back to his native China, where he lived with his parents and changed his name to Li Jiaming.


“After a 10-year struggle we are relieved.” Li Junjun The cousin was speaking on behalf of Amanda Zhao’s parents

Investigators gathered enough evidence to charge Li after he had fled the country. He was arrested last summer when Canadian authorities finally gave in and sent the evidence for the

case to Beijing after a long battle in which China insisted the trial be conducted there. As part of the agreement, China agreed to waive the death penalty. Trials in China are notoriously quick, but this one took a full year. Li’s lawyer Zou Jiaming said little about why the case took a year to process. Zou said her client will appeal the intentional-homicide guilty verdict.

Buddhist statue made from piece of meteorite This image provided by NASA shows a Martian rock outcrop near the landing site of Curiosity. It’s thought to be the site of an ancient streambed. The rover is searching for microbial life. NASA/the associated press

Mars rover uncovers signs of ancient streambed Scientists say NASA’s newest Mars rover has found signs that a stream once flowed across the planet’s surface near the site where it landed. Curiosity touched down in a crater near the Martian equator last month. The red planet today is dusty and dry but scientists think it was once warmer and wetter. Evidence of an ancient stream came from analyzing the size and shapes of pebbles and gravel near Gale Crater.

Mission scientists said Thursday it appeared the water was fast-moving and deep. Images from space have provided hints of a watery past at Curiosity’s landing site. The latest discovery on the ground confirms that. Curiosity is headed toward a spot where three types of terrain meet. The rover’s ultimate destination is a mountain rising from the centre of the crater. the associated press

‘Iron Man’. Statue made from the Chinga meteorite which crashed to Earth 15,000 years ago An ancient Buddhist statue that a Nazi expedition brought back from Tibet shortly before the Second World War was carved from a meteorite that crashed on Earth thousands of years ago. What sounds like an Indiana Jones movie plot appears to have actually taken place, according to European researchers publishing in the journal Meteoritics and Planetary Science this month. Elmar Buchner of the University of Stuttgart said Thursday the statue was brought to Germany by the Schaefer expedition. The Nazi-backed venture set out for Tibet in 1938 in part to trace the origins of the Aryan race, a cornerstone of the Nazis’ racist ideology. The existence of the 10.6-kilogram statue, known as “iron man,” was only revealed in 2007 when its owner died and it came up

“I am not a historian. But the ‘iron man’ does not look like a Buddha to me from my cultural background,” he said. “It looks more like a warrior with ... (a) resemblance of Genghis Khan,” said Qing-Zhu Yin, a researcher in geology at the University of California. • The Nazis were probably attracted to the statue by a left-facing swastika on its front. The swastika has been used by various cultures.

for auction. German and Austrian scientists were able to get permission from its new owner, who wasn’t disclosed, to conduct a chemical analysis that shows the statue came from the Chinga meteorite, which crashed in the area of the Russian and Mongolian border around 15,000 years ago. The meteorite was officially discovered in 1913, but Buchner said the statue could be 1,000 years old. Linking the statue to the meteorite was credible, experts said. the associated press

Chinese activist artist says he won’t pay rest of $2.4M fine Ai Weiwei. Artist’s supporters have interpreted the penalty as official retaliation against his activism Activist artist Ai Weiwei said he does not intend to pay $1.1 million demanded by Beijing tax officials after he lost a final appeal in the case on Thursday, a defiant stance that threatens further confrontation with authorities. Beijing’s No. 2 Intermediate Court rejected a second and final appeal of the $2.4-million fine levied against Ai’s design company for alleged tax evasion. The company earlier submitted a financial guarantee of $1.3 million to officials in order to get a review of his case. That money will be automatically collected, Ai said, but he won’t pay the difference. “Our intention is that we are not going to pay,” Ai said.

He said he wasn’t sure what will happen as a result and still had to discuss the plan with his lawyers. The fine was levied last year, soon after he was released from detention in an overall crackdown on dissent. Ai and his company, Fake Cultural Development Ltd., accused the tax bureau of violating laws in handling witnesses, gathering evidence and company accounts. The court rejected those claims, and the ruling cannot be appealed again. Ai said he was disappointed but not surprised. “What surprises me is that this society, which is developing at such a rapid rate today, still has the most barbaric and backward legal system,” he said. “I think it’s a bad omen.” Ai said the Beijing court should have given him written notice of its judgment three days in advance, but instead notified him by phone Wednesday, the day before the ruling. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Stuck in China

Ai Weiwei says authorities have yet to return his passport effectively barring him from leaving the country. His passport was taken after he was detained without explanation for three months last year. Authorities had said they would give his passport back after a probationary period that ended in June. • Not having the passport

has kept him from going to exhibitions of his work and other engagements in Washington, New York and Berlin, he said.

• A sculptor, photographer

and installation artist, Ai has used his art and online profile to draw attention to injustices in Chinese society and the need for greater transparency and rule of law.

Icebreaker sails Arctic Ocean — a first for China

Chinese icebreaker Xuelong, or Snow Dragon, docks in Shanghai Thursday after an 85-day scientific quest across the Arctic Ocean. It is the first Chinese vessel to cross the Arctic Ocean. Xinhua-Pei Xin/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

A Chinese icebreaker docked Thursday at Shanghai after becoming the first vessel from China to cross the Arctic Ocean, a landmark trip that is part of Beijing’s efforts to expand its presence in the Arctic. With melting icecaps accelerating the opening of new shipping routes and the exploration of oil, gas and mineral deposits in the Arctic, China has been eager to gain a foothold in the region. The icebreaker Snow Dragon returned to Shanghai after wrapping up a three-

month mission that took it from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic via the Arctic, the Shanghai-based Polar Research Institute of China said in a statement. The vessel’s 119 crew members completed an oceanic survey in waters around Iceland with their Icelandic counterparts. Though it has no territorial claims in the Arctic, China has been lobbying for permanent observer status on the eight-member Arctic Council in a bid to gain influence. During summer months

when they are passable, Arctic shipping routes between China and Europe are 40 per cent faster than travelling through the Indian Ocean, the Suez Canal and the Mediterranean Sea. The institute’s statement said Snow Dragon gained “first-hand information about navigation in Arctic sea lanes as well as the oceanic environment, and carried out useful exploration and practice for our nation’s ships that use Arctic passages in the future.” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Syrian government sends mass texts telling rebels to surrender Psychological ploy. Army warns fighters it’s time to lay down their weapons, get rid of foreign supporters Syrian authorities sent text messages over cellphones nationwide Thursday with a message for rebels fighting President Bashar Assad’s re­ gime: “Game over.” The messages signed by the Syrian Arab Army also urged the rebels to surrender their weapons and warned the countdown to evict for­ eign fighters has begun. The texts appear to be part of the regime’s psychological battle against the rebels, but are highly unlikely to have any ef­ fect on fighters intent on top­ pling Assad. Syrians say they began re­ ceiving the messages a day after rebels bombed a military command centre in Damascus — a major security breach of the heavily guarded capital

His office says he’s being recognized as “a champion of democracy, freedom, and human rights.” Past winners include Jean Chrétien, France’s Nicolas Sarkozy and former British prime minister Gordon Brown. The prime minister also sat down later in the day with Abbas, and was scheduled to meet on Friday morning with Netanyahu.

Frustrated scientist develops pain reliever for ailing wife. Bobby Orr speaks up to help people in pain. In 2007, pain medications had failed to help Dr. Joseph Gabriele’s wife get out of bed for more than a year. As a respected specialist in molecular pharmacology, Gabriele was forced into his laboratory outside the university in pursuit of developing a pain reliever that would relieve Sue’s exhausting struggle for peace and comfort. The natural pain reliever he created is known as LivRelief. Gabriele understood he must follow his moral compass in order to help others overcome pain; particularly those who had given up hope. Dr. Gabriele asked himself - What athlete has impeccable integrity; suffers pain from severe injuries; and is sensitive to helping others?

Bobby Orr was the ideal candidate. Orr has two artificial knees. Six surgeries and chronic pain cut short his career. With little-to-no downside, Orr skeptically agreed to sample LivRelief. “After three weeks, I went to my wife Peggy and said “Could this be in my head? She said let me try this on my elbow. A few days after that she came back to me and said do you have any more of that stuff?” Orr gave LivRelief to his sister who has arthritis in her hands, and aslo to his nephew and his golf pro. Two years have passed. “The results have been incredible. I would recommend it to anyone suffering in pain”

Now, retail stores across Canada and the United States are stocking up on LivRelief Pain Relief Cream and LivRelief Nerve Pain Relief. Priced at $30. Find LivRelief at: Shoppers Drug Mart, Rexall, select pharmacies, Metro, Sobey’s, GNC, Big Carrot and local health food stores. People like telling other people about pain relievers that work well. PLEASE SHARE your opinion and experience at You could help others find their answer to pain relief. No computer and you would still like to help? CALL toll free 1.888.788.2320. Guarantee: Let’s face it. We all have unique bodies. Not every medication has the exact same effect. If it doesn’t work for you, you’ll know it quickly. Simply return it in 30 days. You’ll have either pain relief or your money back.

Top court’s anonymity ruling gets likes The Supreme Court of Canada was widely praised Thursday for granting anonymity to a teenage girl so she can pursue a lawsuit over a bogus Facebook page that she says defamed her. The ruling was welcomed as a necessary step in child protection in the Internet age, one that extends to victims of cyber-bullying the same legal right to anonymity that is currently granted to sexual assault complainants, children in family-law disputes and most accused criminals under the age of 18.

Bank of Canada Governor Mark Carney is seen at Spruce Meadows Roundtable in Calgary on Sept. 7. The continuing speculation that Carney will run for Liberal party leadership puts him and the bank, who are supposed to be independent and non-partisan, in an awkward position. Kin Cheung/the associated press

The Bank of Canada is trying to douse rampant speculation that Mark Carney is a potential candidate for the leadership of the Liberal party. The bank pointed Thursday to an interview Carney gave last spring in which he said he’s not contemplating a career in politics and insisted he’s focused on his twin jobs as governor of Canada’s central bank and chairman of the international Financial Stability Board. However, his denials to date have not been sufficiently categorical to dissuade some Liberals from dreaming of a Carney candidacy. A “Mark Carney for leader” Facebook page has popped up. It has garnered one friend so far — Tim Murphy, one-time chief of staff to former prime minister Paul Martin.

and sterling economic credentials would give the party much-needed credibility and turn what is shaping up to be a Justin Trudeau cake-walk into a must-watch contest.

Murphy and another former Martin insider, Richard Mahoney, are among the names of influential Liberals rumoured to have urged Carney to take the plunge. Neither could be reached for comment. Speculation about Carney’s possible interest in the top Liberal job has swirled for a couple of years. But the rumour mill went into hyper-drive Wednesday after news broke that Justin Trudeau will formally launch his leadership bid Tuesday in Montreal. the canadian press

Delay jailing Amish while harvesting, say lawyers

Documents. Defence attorneys say clients, out on bond, accused of hair-cutting attacks, don’t pose a threat

Putting all of the Amish men and women convicted in beard and hair-cutting attacks on fellow Amish behind bars now during harvest season would create a financial hardship for their families and could leave their children hungry this winter, their lawyers argued. Nine of the 16 Amish people convicted a week ago have remained free, but the government wants them locked up before sentencing early next year. A federal jury in Cleveland convicted all of the defendants of hate crimes in the hair attacks last fall that prosecutors said stemmed from religious disputes among the Amish in eastern Ohio. Prosecutors say they targeted hair because it carries spiritual significance. The leader of the group was found guilty of orchestrating the cuttings in an attempt to shame mainstream members who he believed were straying

Following the convictions, prosecutors said detention is mandatory for the defendants and asked that bond be revoked. U.S. District Court Judge Dan Aaron Polster is weighing the request, while the defence plans to appeal the convictions. Several of the people convicted are married, and prison terms could leave children with one or more parents behind bars. Attorney Joseph Dubyak for one woman, Linda Schrock, says she should be allowed to remain free until sentencing, in part, because she’s busy harvesting crops and canning food for her 10 children. Her husband, who has also been convicted, has been jailed since his arrest. “She is the sole support of these children,” he wrote.

Jesus papyrus. Vatican newspaper adds to doubt The Vatican newspaper has added to the doubts surrounding Harvard University’s claim that a 4th century Coptic papyrus fragment showed that some early Christians believed that Jesus was married, declaring it a “fake.” The Vatican newspaper, L’Osservatore Romano, published an article Thursday by leading Coptic scholar Alberto Camplani and an accompanying editorial by the newspaper’s editor, Giovanni Maria Vian, an expert in early Christianity. They both cited concerns expressed by other scholars about the fragment’s authenticity and the fact that it was purchased on the market Painting may be stolen

Piece may have gone missing six decades ago A painting believed to be by French impressionist PierreAuguste Renoir that a woman bought for $7 at a flea market may have been stolen from a museum six decades ago.

without a known archaeological provenance. “At any rate, a fake,” Vian entitled his editorial, which criticized Harvard for creating a “clamourous” media frenzy over the fragment by handing the scoop to two U.S. newspapers only to see “specialists immediately question it.” Karen King, a professor of early Christianity at Harvard Divinity School, announced the finding last week at an international congress on Coptic studies in Rome. The text, written in Coptic and probably translated from a 2nd century Greek text, contains a dialogue in which Jesus refers to “my wife,” whom he identifies as Mary. The Associated Press

An auction house has put the sale of the painting on hold after a reporter discovered documents in the Baltimore Museum of Art’s library showing the painting was there from 1937 until 1949. Museum officials said Paysage Bords de Seine was stolen in 1951. The museum director told the reporter the FBI is investigating. The Associated Press


Mona Lisa earlier version has art experts baffled Double. Leonardo da Vinci’s painting made 10 years before the one in the Louvre, says non-profit foundation The mystery behind the most enigmatic smile in art — Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa — just got a little more complicated. In a coming-out party of sorts in Geneva, rounds of flashbulbs popped Thursday as the non-profit Mona Lisa Foundation pulled back the curtain to present what it claims is a predecessor of the world’s most famous portrait. But even the experts brought in by the foundation weren’t sure about that claim. The art world is prone to all sorts of rumours and speculation — and, periodically, discoveries that jolt accepted norms. Two years ago, a retired French electrician claimed that he had turned up 271 Picasso

works that had been sitting for decades in his garage — and Picasso’s heirs claimed theft. But a new claim about the world’s most famous painting, which draws millions of visitors to Paris’ Louvre Museum each year, resonates like a thunderclap in the art world. It also prompts a new look at a painting that still raises a lot of questions for experts — not least the timeless “Is she smiling or not?” At the presentation, Alessandro Vezzosi, director of the Museo Ideale Leonardo da Vinci, said the painting was intriguing but needs further study. He declined to line up behind the foundation’s claims that it was truly a Mona Lisa predecessor painted by da Vinci. “The Isleworth Mona Lisa is an important work of art deserving respect and strong consideration — as well as a scientific, historic and artistic debate among specialists rather than a purely media interest,” he said. The Associated Press

A painting attributed to Leonardo da Vinci and representing Mona Lisa is seen during a preview presentation in a vault in Onex near Geneva. The Mona Lisa Foundation claims there have always been two portraits: the one in the Louvre in Paris and a version made 10 years earlier. Laurent Gillieron/the associated press

Cost-cutting shifts burden to provinces, budget officer says Financial outlook. Parliamentary official projects lower levels of government will add enough debt to resemble Greece, Italy Ottawa’s cost-cutting measures have put it on a sound fiscal track for the future, but the provinces are left holding the bag, says Canada’s budget watchdog. Parliamentary Budget Officer Kevin Page’s latest long-term projection on government finances suggests Ottawa has little to fear from the loss of revenue and rising costs tied to the aging population. Page also judges the Canada Pension Plan and Quebec Pension Plan fiscally sound. But the report, released Thursday, shows provinces and municipalities adding so

much debt over the next 70 years or so they would resemble Greece and Italy if something is not done. The report calculates that provinces and their municipalities have a fiscal gap of about two per cent of gross domestic product now — or $36 billion — and by 2086 will have debt worth 350 per cent of GDP. Meanwhile, Ottawa will be in a structural surplus. Page cautions that this is a “what if” scenario and is not a forecast, but adds that governments need to be aware of the fiscal track they’re following to ensure they make the right policy decisions. “We’re not saying in the report that the provinces have to panic and start taking measures right now,” Page said in an interview. “But in terms of dealing with aging demographics ... if they wait five years the gap goes from something like two to 2.3 (per cent of GDP).

CN tests out natural-gas trains in oilsands region Retrofitting project. Converting diesel-fired locomotives could cut CO2 emissions by 30% Canadian National Railway is exploring whether it’s feasible to use cheap and relatively clean natural gas to power its trains instead of diesel. To start out, CN has retrofitted two of its existing diesel-fired locomotives to run mainly on natural gas. It’s testing the locomotives along the 480-kilometre stretch between Edmonton, a key energy processing and pipeline hub, and the oilsands epicentre of Fort McMurray, Alta. Longer term, CN and three other partners are looking at developing an all-new natural gas locomotive engine as well as a specialized tank car to carry the fuel. Natural gas giant Encana Corp. is providing the fuelling, which, along with maintenance, will be taking place in Edmonton.

Canadian National Railway is testing two natural-gas-fired locomotives, like the one shown above, in Alberta’s oilsands region to see if it’s feasible to switch from diesel to a fuel that’s cheap, plentiful and relatively clean. Canadian National Railway

Energy Conversion Inc., the U.S. company that’s supplying the conversion kits to CN, says the move will cut carbon dioxide emissions by 30 per cent and nitrogen oxide emissions by 70 per cent over a locomotive duty cycle. “Natural gas has a lower

carbon content compared with diesel fuel, so that locomotives using natural gas — if the railway technology employing this form of energy ultimately proves viable — would produce significantly fewer carbon dioxide emissions,” said CN chief operat-

ing officer Keith Creel in a release. Railcars currently carry machinery and construction materials up to the oilsands, and extraction byproducts such as petroleum coke and sulphur south. The Canadian Press

My daughter is lucky enough to be one of the attendees. Watch for upcoming WeDay events in Calgary, Winnipeg, Montreal and Vancouver. Be the change. Billie Joe Armstrong. After his epic, profanityladen onstage meltdown at a Las Vegas show in a YouTube video that went viral, it was obvious something was wrong with Green Day’s lead singer. It was explained days later, when the band announced he entered rehab seeking treatment for substance abuse. Yes, rehab is — just as hookups and breakups are — par for the course in celeb land. 10 Reasons Why... A British woman, Emily Hatridge, has a hilarious YouTube TV show called 10 Reasons Why..., which has wry episodes on topics including plastic surgery, dieting, sex tapes, cheating and dating. Her clever premise is that “everything in the world can be explained with 10 reasons.” Which in our ADD-world works brilliantly. Or maybe five reasons would work better. Flavour Flav. At the iHeartRadio Music Festival, Public’s Enemy’s Flavour Flav was super excited to meet Gwen Stefani backstage — “Gwen Stefannnnni!” he said in excitement after meeting her. Only problem is it wasn’t Gwen Stefani, it was Miley Cyrus. And Miley didn’t correct him. It’s OK: When people mistake me for David Beckham or Brad Pitt, I don’t correct them either. Buzz Bishop. Calgary media personality Buzz Bishop received worldwide media attention — and much backlash — after writing a blog post in which he admitted to liking his five-year-old son Zacharie more than his two-year-old Charlie: “If I were to be absolutely honest, my older son is my favourite of the two,” he said. I don’t know what else to say, except WTF was he thinking saying that? Myspace 2.0. Struggling to reinvent itself, the social network owned in part by Justin Timberlake released a well-received teaser video this week displaying a massive redesign — kinda of a Pinterest/Facebook/Instagram/Twitter combo. The focus is more on music and the creative community. With JT behind it and still 54 million fans, a comeback is possible. Speechless in Seattle. Green Bay defeated Seattle Monday night when they intercepted a Hail Mary pass on the last play. Except the replacement refs (the regular refs were locked out) awarded the Seattle receiver a TD, giving the Seahawks victory. And creating a Twitter frenzy from appalled fans. “These games are a joke,” Hall of Fame Troy Aikman tweeted. Indeed. Tuxedo Stan. The feline whose owner has him cheekily running for Halifax’s mayoral race to raise awareness about stray cats in the city got a huge endorsement this week when Anderson Cooper plugged him on The Ridiculist segment on CNN. There are now 6,500 people and counting on his Stan’s Tuxedo Party Facebook page. That’s way more than his closest competitor. A human. Justin Trudeau. The 40-year-old son of late PM Pierre Trudeau is expected to announce his leadership run for the federal Liberal Party Tuesday, making politics in Canada immediately far more interesting and “sexy.” Trudeau has a great shot at winning, so long as Tuxedo Stan (see No. 10) doesn’t run. the list WEEKEND, September 28-30, 2012

Real estate tainted by Nazi leader An exterior view of Adolf Hitler’s birth house in Braunau am Inn, Austria, is seen Thursday. With its thick walls, huge arched doorway and deep-set windows, the 500-year-old house near the town square would normally be prime property. Because Hitler was born here, it has become a huge headache for town fathers forced into deciding what to do with a landmark so intimately linked to evil.



• The building was most

recently used as a workshop for the mentally ill, which some saw as atonement for the murders of tens of thousands of disabled people by the Nazi regime. But that tenant moved out last year for more modern quarters.

“We are already stigmatized ... We, as the town of Braunau, are not ready to assume responsibility for the outbreak of World War II.” Johannes Waidbacher Mayor of Braunau am Inn told the Austrian daily Der Standard

• The departure reignited

debate on what to do with the house, with the mayor declaring he preferred creating apartments over turning the building into an antiNazi memorial.

The Associated press



Recent departure

Tourists visit

Fear of attracting neo-Nazis persists One major fear: The house could fill up with Hitler worshippers if converted into living space. “These are certainly people we don’t want here,” said town council member Harry Buchmayr, noting that most visitors are not normal tourists, but neo-Nazis stopping to pay homage to Hitler, even though he spent only the first few months of his life in the building.

Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon-Levitt play the same character in the time travel flick Looper. HANDOUT Reel Guys


Nothing average in this film about Joe Looper. Joseph Gordon-Levitt channels Bruce Willis in time travel flick. Metro’s Ned Ehrbar sits in for Mark Breslin this week Richard: Ned, the actors aren’t the stars of the movie, the ideas are. Is it airtight? Nope, but what time travel movie is? Future crime bosses could have done the killing themselves and sent the bodies back to be disposed of, but where’s the fun in that? We need the two Joes in one place to get the story revved. It’s what happens after that is interesting. Did you buy into the story? Ned: I totally bought into the story, thanks in large part to how it’s told. Having been a

huge fan of Rian Johnson’s first film, Brick, I realize I’m more than a little predisposed to love this. He takes the noir brushstrokes used in that film and sends them into the future, creating one that’s gritty and real enough to be believable. Heck, he even makes time travel and telekinesis feel mundane within the world of the film, which is a neat trick. RC: It sure is. He uses the sci-fi premise to allow the character of Joe in both forms to examine his life; past, present and future, and discover what’s really important to him. It’s humanist science fiction that values people over special effects. It’s also a wildly entertaining chase movie, with enough sci-fi to keep the left side of your brain engaged while the right brain will thrill to the chase. NE: I’ll admit I was wary of

the decision to use prosthetic makeup to make Joseph Gordon-Levitt look more like Bruce Willis, but they pull it off for the most part. And the way the two actors work together to create one character — rather than have Gordon-Levitt just do a Willis impression — is fantastic. It’s also the most I’ve enjoyed Willis in years. RC: It’s two, two Joes in one. I thought Gordon-Levitt nailed the cadences of Willis’s voice. Willis is Willis, but he does world-weary like no one else. I also enjoyed Emily Blunt as a protective mother whose son (Pierce Gagnon) is on Old Joe’s hit list. Ditto Jeff Daniels who takes a break from The Newsroom to play the looper boss. NE: Great performances all around, for sure, in a movie that’s smart, well-made and just so much fun. I wish I

Thirty years in the future time travel is illegal. The only people who use it are criminal organizations who send undesirables back to the past to be disposed of. Joe (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is an experienced looper — or present day trigger-man. He doesn’t count on a crime lord from the future ordering his loop be closed. That is, sending his future self, Old Joe (Bruce Willis), to present day to be executed. •

30 Selective admissions

Do phonesex-chat operators keep their job a secret? While Lynnea admits that close friends and family know she works as a phone-sex operator, she typically tells people in social settings that she works as a phone operator for the Home Shopping Network. Though she currently has a long-term boyfriend who knows and accepts her profession, she said the topic wasn’t always easy to navigate. “There have been guys I dated in the past that weren’t going to accept it, but that’s also someone I was not going to spend my life with, either,” she said. “I have had some that have gotten concerned as if I am cheating on them, but that’s not the case.”

Want to pull in six figures? Try a career in talking dirty Phone sex. Even with the Internet, dial up fun is still appealing to some — here a few women talk about their jobs as operators cassandra garrison

Metro World News in New York

The sleeper comedy For a Good Time, Call, in theatres across Canada, has perked interest in the world of phone sex. It’s a long-time industry that is still quietly plugging away, despite the rise of Internet porn. The film chronicles the adventures of two young women who launch a phone sex line together out of their New York City apartment. It’s not long before they’re rolling in thousands of dollars. But while real-life phone sex operators say the money is definitely good, they also

caution that it doesn’t happen overnight. Lynnea, 30, is a phone sex operator based outside Pittsburgh. She’s been in the industry for more than 10 years, and told Metro the notion of quick cash while working from home during her college years is what drew her to explore the profession. In her first year, she made $20,000. Now, she said, she easily makes $160,000. “It’s not quick money, you have to build your clientele,” Lynnea said. “It took about five years till I was rolling in money and I’m not making a million a month, but I’ve been able to purchase a home, I get new vehicles, I get exotic vacations, I can do all of that.” Ruby, a phone sex operator who got into the industry as a stay-at-home mom, plays about 16 different female characters over the phone, from the hot and sexy Caitlin to the busty Roxanne. She answers calls that are routed to her through

her company’s dispatcher and gets paid 50 cents per minute. For her, the big money with phone sex — which she describes as narrated porn — comes from repeat clients who she can keep on the line. Her longest call lasted more than 10 hours. “It’s probably not realistic to make $10,000 in a month. You have to get publicity, you have to advertise,” said Ruby, who is originally from Queens in New York but is now based in Florida. “If you can land what we call in the business a whale, you are going to do well, but those are few and far between.” And, according to these PSOs, as phone sex operators

Kinky calls

Worms, dryers and other odd requests

call themselves, phone sex takes a lot more than a little dirty talk. It takes a certain personality to keep clients interested, leading them to call back again, they said. And a PSO has to be willing to explore the deepest depths of sexuality. Lynnea refuses to talk about anything that is illegal in real life, like pedophilia or bestiality. But Ruby, a so-called “notaboos” PSO, will discuss any fetish a client wants to talk about. “Anything goes,” she said. “If you want to talk about reading a library book or you want to talk about getting your (expletive) cut off, that’s fine — I’m an actress.”


“It took about five years till I was rolling in money and I’m not making a million a month, but I’ve been able to purchase a home, I get new vehicles, I get exotic vacations, I can do all of that.” Phone sex operator Lynnea, who makes $160,000 per year talking dirty.

Films like For a Good Time, Call... spark an interest in the phone sex industry. handout

Aside from fielding calls from drunk or mentally disturbed people (which is about 15 per cent of the time, according to Ruby), PSOs encounter just about every sex fetish out there. While the majority of men who call are either looking to play out fantasies where they are dominated or experimenting with another man, Ruby and Lynnea said they’ve received plenty of requests that surprise even them. “One of the ones that always sticks out is dryer boy,” Ruby said. “He wanted to make believe he was in the dryer and he was being tumbled around.” Another man who calls Ruby likes to wear pantyhose and fantasize that she is shoving 1,000 worms down his stockings, she said. “I always say I have heard everything and then I get something new,” she said. Metro


Is it your calling? The job offers good money — and some real freaky clients Phone sex operators predict a rise in interest from women considering joining the profession following the release of For a Good Time, Call. “Every time there is some type of media exposure, I got swamped with applications,” Lynnea said, adding that prospective PSOs have to brace themselves for disturbing calls. “You are going to encounter every issue because you are talking to men nationwide,” she said. “You will encounter racists who want you to use racial slurs in your

phone sex.” Ruby said aside from needing a land line and committing to a 20-40 hour week, a PSO has to be outgoing, imaginative, knowledgeable about sexual fetishes and, most importantly, able to offer a human connection over the phone. “You need compassion. Sometimes the call is the only nice part of their day,” Ruby said. “They may have really crappy lives. I like to think I’m giving them a little bit of sunshine.” Metro

Workin’ 9 to 6. Juggling a family and a career as a phone sex operator Ruby, a single mom, started taking calls as a PSO from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. in a room on the other side of the house from where her kids were sleeping. She told Metro once her son became an adult, she told

him what she really does for a living and he supports her. “I’m very up front with it, I’m not ashamed of what I do,” Ruby said. “This is my job, just like if I was a nurse or a teacher.” Metro

Hockey Strike: The Movie With the NHL strike in high gear, there’s no hope for Canada’s sport in sight and hockey players are fleeing to lace up their skates in Europe. As such, fans are forced to look for silver linings. With historical labour disruptions creating such classic cinematic hits as Norma Rae, Matewan and 2010’s Made in Dagenham, one ponders whether the 2012 hockey strike couldn’t at least make a decent movie, depending on the outcome, of course. Steve gow

Real-life version

Player’s version

Stars: NHL commissioner Gary Bettman, NHL Players Association chief Donald Fehr, and many hockey players

Stars: Brad Pitt (playing all the athletes), Jack Nicholson (as Fehr), Kevin James from Paul Blart: Mall Cop (as Bettman)

Plot: Bettman is asking Fehr that the players’ share of hockey-related revenue (HRR) be reduced up to 14 per cent. Fehr doesn’t accept and the athletes are locked out. While fans suffer, many players take offers to play in Europe. Owners/players are still multi-millionaires.

Plot: Fehr holds Bettman’s head in a toilet until he agrees to increase the HRR and wear a dunce-cap all season long. The players in Europe double salaries for playing on two teams and fans throw roses on the ice during the first returning game.

Bettman’s Version

Fan’s version Stars: Larry the Cable Guy (playing every role except the fans)

Stars: Bruce Willis (as Bettman), Rob Schneider (as Fehr), Keystone Cops (as Players)

Plot: A group of dedicated hockey fans invent a time machine and go back decades before Bettman and Fehr were in charge, when tickets were reasonably priced and hockey wasn’t just a business negotiation between the rich.

Plot: Bettman the Hero holds out until the season is almost cancelled. Fehr comes crying, pleading for his forgiveness and accepts an astronomical wage rollback. Players who went overseas are replaced with the chimpanzees from the MVP: Most Valuable Primate movies. Who would play Gary Bettman in a movie? getty images

Won’t Back Down

Hotel Transylvania

Beauty is Embarrassing

Director. Daniel Barnz

Director. Genndy Tartakovsky

Stars. Maggie Gyllenhaal, Viola Davis

Stars. Adam Sandler, Selena Gomez



If it weren’t for alluring performances from Oscarnominees Viola Davis and Maggie Gyllenhaal, Won’t Back Down would be as bland as its uninspired title. A heavy-handed drama about a single mother and an overworked teacher who use bureaucracy to overtake a failing school, the Daniel Barnz (Beastly) drama is predictably aimed at rousing audiences. But while topical enough in today’s times, the obvious outcome won’t make the grade with most audiences.

It’s not that the notion of a hotel exclusively for misunderstood monsters seeking refuge from hostile humans isn’t clever, but in Hotel Transylvania at least, the premise overstays its welcome. Featuring the voices of such talents as a vampiric Adam Sandler and Selena Gomez, the family-friendly film aims high with a visual play on gothic gags that unfortunately only endure as long as you are entertained by such things as flatulent B-movie monsters.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower

Eddie the Sleepwalking Cannibal

Stars. Wayne White

Director. Stephen Chbosky

Director. Boris Rodriguez


Stars. Logan Lerman, Emma Watson

Stars. Thure Lindhardt, Dylan Smith, Georgina Reilly



The teenage coming-of-age drama is one of the most difficult things to capture on film. Yet the Perks of Being a Wallflower, written and directed by Stephen Chbosky and based on the book he wrote, pulls it off with aplomb. Troubled teen Charlie falls in with a group of similar social misfits, each with their own hang-ups. A moving film, Perks cannily captures adolescence, reminding us how happy we are to be done with it.

A unique blend of two quirky cultural sensibilities, this funny, bizarre Canadian-Norwegian horror comedy manages to be both charming and stomach churning, sometimes within the same scene. When a once famous painter takes a job teaching in a northern Canadian town, he is charged with “babysitting” a sweet-natured simpleton named Eddie. Only problem is that Eddie is prone to late night sleepwalking and snacking on human flesh.

Boundary pushing. Movie that’s testing Filipino sensitivities in the Academy Award nomination process An indie drama that explores the loneliness and missed opportunities of an ailing, 70-year-old gay man is testing Philippine sensibilities about sexuality and, if it passes the Academy Awards’ nomination process, may get a shot as the country’s entry in the best foreign-language film competition next year. Bwakaw, or Voracious, has received positive reviews and local awards, and is doing the rounds of international film festivals in Toronto, New York, Hawaii and Tokyo. Writer and director Jun

Filipino writer and director Jun Robles Lana is behind Bwakaw. the associated press

Robles Lana says the movie is named after a stray dog with a voracious appetite for life that Rene, the main character, strikes a friendship with. Bwakaw’s zest for life con-


trasts with Rene’s grumpy disposition. Rene, who came out of the closet in his twilight years, thinks it is too late for love and only awaits his own death. He has made a will and labeled his few possessions to be given away to his few friends. He even bought a coffin at a funeral home’s closingout sale. But when Bwakaw dies after an illness, Rene, played by veteran actor Eddie Garcia, finds new appreciation for life. “It’s the dog that basically teaches him to live life to the fullest,” Lana said in an interview Wednesday. “It’s really more about loneliness, although you can’t help that some people or critics are branding it a gay film simply because the character is gay, but that’s really beside the point,” he said.

“I guess there’s stuff that surprises me. I really haven’t gone into deep, heavy discussions with people about the time travel logic and what they got and what they didn’t, but so far the most surprising thing has been the stuff that we were trying to communicate seems to have gotten through. When you’re making a movie, it feels like to some degree you’re putting a message in a bottle and chucking it out to sea, and years later to talk to people who’ve seen it and hear that things landed for them, that feels really good.” Writer-director Rian Johnson on audience reactions to his new film, Looper.

Darrell Roodt has taken flak for casting American actors in Winnie — his biopic about Nelson and Winnie Mandela. But the South African filmmaker is making no apologies. “It’s fine for Clint Eastwood

to come to town and bring Morgan (Freeman),” defended Roodt recently referencing the American icon’s 2009 hit Invictus. “But as soon as a South African does it, he gets nailed to the wall. My answer to this is very simple: I didn’t hire American actors to play Nelson and Winnie, I hired great actors to play them.” The veteran director may have cast Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson and nominee Terrence Howard to bring the one-time president and first-Lady of South Africa to the big screen but he believes the proof is in the stars’ stellar performances — particularly Howard who not only takes on the uncanny appearance of Mandela, but did

so even before it was necessary. “He was astonishing. He was my choice when I was writing it and just to be around him when he was doing that was quite amazing,” said Roodt. “He was Mandela six months before he came to shoot. Every time I had a phone conversation with him it was like talking to Mandela on the phone.” While the film (which hits theatres October 5) mostly centres on the controversial life of Winnie Mandela (who was an aggressive anti-apartheid activist all throughout her exhusband’s 27-year incarceration), Roodt also saw the drama as a beautiful love story. “The book that it’s based on, the very last line says ‘and

Nicholas Brody Played by Damian Lewis When we first met him… Brody, the Marine sergeant who was held by al-Qaida as a prisoner of war for eight years, returned to the U.S. a war hero, but was suspected of being “turned” by terrorists and viewed as a risk to national security by CIA operative Carrie Mathison. “In the first season, he was a man just trying to re-enter civilian life,” Lewis says. “There was a degree of damage which elicited some sympathy from the audience, but at the same time he also was the menace. So people were terrified of him.” What’s to come Now a U.S. congressman, will Brody achieve his goal of destroying America from within? “Brody made a mission statement at the end of the first season, saying he wanted a nonviolent political subversion of American policy,” Lewis says. “He would like to think he’s in control of his own destiny. He absolutely won’t be is my prediction for this season, and I think he will live in a state of heightened anxiety and paranoia and uncertainty. Essentially, he’s everybody’s b—. He’s pretty f—ed.” Quoted

“He’s like a suppurating sore that will, I imagine, need to be lanced at some point.” Damian Lewis on where we find Brody in Season 2

Carrie Mathison Played by Claire Danes When we first met her… As a CIA agent in Iraq, Carrie was told of an American POW who had been turned into an al-Qaida sleeper agent. Suffering from bipolar disorder — something she hid from nearly everyone — she became obsessed with the recently released Nicholas Brody, who fit the description of the terrorist. “There was that crescendo of mania at the very end (caused by Carrie’s bipolar

disorder), but throughout that first season, it was sort of simmering,” Danes says of her character’s condition. Though her illness complicated things, Danes believes the highly intelligent Carrie had “some suspicion that maybe her condition was responsible for her genius. I think that’s probably true for a lot of people with the condition,” she adds. What’s to come After Carrie’s condition was made public, the disgraced operative sought treatment through electroconvulsive therapy. Undergoing the procedure, which can cause memory loss, led to her being unable to recall key information she uncovered about Brody — even after she is

Schmid plays ‘man of many faces’ in Showcase period drama Copper Hit TV. Ontario actor Schmid talks portrayal of Robert Morehouse in 1864 New York City stephen eramo

When it comes to class barriers look no further than Showcase’s hit period drama Copper. Set in 1864 New York City, most of its characters live in either the impoverished immigrant neighbourhood of Five Points or the affluent Fifth Avenue. Robert Morehouse is among Manhattan’s elite, having been born into a privileged family. A U.S. Civil War veteran, the conflict took its physical toll on the handsome young man while also instilling in him a newfound respect for the less fortunate. He returned home a changed person, as actor Kyle Schmid found when stepping into Morehouse’s well-polished shoes. “Since the beginning I’ve

always seen Morehouse as a man of many faces and someone who’s still trying to figure out who he really is as a man,” notes Schmid. “I think for the majority of his life he always vied for his father Norbert’s attention as well as validation, and in taking part in the war, a whole new world was blown wide open for him. “Morehouse masks many of his admirable and even dangerous qualities at times with alcohol, drugs and women. He also has the opportunity to play some of the show’s fun and lighter notes, which I think is great because those moments undermine how serious and quite capable he really is.” On the battlefield, Morehouse met Detective Kevin Corcoran (Tom Weston-Jones) and Dr. Matthew Freeman (Ato Essandoh), both of whom continue to play a part in his life.

Haven, based on the novella The Colorado Kid from horror/ thriller author Stephen King, follows former FBI agent Audrey Parker (Emily Rose) who becomes a cop in Haven, Maine and soon discovers the small town’s many secrets, which also hold the key to unlocking the mysteries of her lost past.

Sherlock’s legacy and Stephen King adaptations — this week on TV If you think you know Sherlock Holmes, a new fast-paced documentary directed by Gary Lang offers compelling evidence that the famous fictional sleuth has influenced the 21st century in ways few could imagine. With help from a dynamic cast of real-life characters and a visual style designed to provoke and amuse, The Real Sherlock Holmes — airing Friday — dares to deduce that modern forensic science, espionage and even space travel might have evolved differently were it not for Holmes. (History)

“Morehouse’s relationships with Freeman and Corcoran for me began as one thing and developed into something else entirely,” says the Ontario native. “At first I thought they had this kind of kinship or bond that was stronger than the negative ideology of the time. However, after watching our characters grow throughout the first season, I realized that their ‘friendship,’ although layered with respect, was created more out of need and use of one another.” Behind the scenes, the actor enjoyed working with the entire Copper cast, including Geordie Johnson (Norbert Morehouse). “Jordi is so much fun to work with,” he says. “He not only plays his character so well, but the laughs and great times we had off-camera were fantastic and helped the sometimes long days go by so easily.” Is Schmid pleased with how Robert’s story arc plays out in Copper’s first season? “I am, and without saying too much or giving anything away, I think the best is yet to come.”

Canoe buddies set to paddle through TV season Paddling Bryans. Next adventurous series of simple-recipe show begins Monday It’s hard to know what makes a hit TV show these days. Networks can spend millions trying to mount a big Broadway Smash every week or float a nuclear submarine drama like Last Resort, and what is everyone talking about? Honey Boo Boo. It seems low-budget reality shows such as Breaking Amish or Hillbilly Hand Fishing have just as much of a shot as dramas about mob doctors or comedies about new girls. So don’t dismiss a show about two guys from Quebec in a canoe. The Paddling Bryans return Monday, October 1 on Travel+Escape for a second season of, well, canoeing and paddling. Former schoolmates, Bryan Adams and Bryan Wallwork, just love jumping into their canoe, named “Sakakawea,” and heading out on monthslong canoe trips. “It’s named after a na-

tive American goddess,” says Wallwork. “It’s bad luck to get into a boat without a name,” says Adams. Both have day jobs — one as bartender, the other

working in family-run potash mine — but canoeing has been their calling for most of their 29 years. Last year they took on an epic outdoor adventure: pad-

dling 5,555 kilometres from Milk River, Alta., to New Orleans, La. The journey took six months. When their buddy Wilder Weir heard what they were

up to, he had two thoughts: “You’re going to die,” he told them, “and we have to film it.” Weir, who’d had experience in television, went out and bought the most expensive camera he could afford. He handed it off to the Bryans with instructions to “shoot everything.” Without any kind of a TV deal, Weir than cut the hours and hours of digital material into an eight-minute “sizzle reel,” basically zeroing in on a knee injury to one of the Bryans which threatened to capsize the entire project. “That first trip was really a learning experience between paddling together and learning to use cameras,” admits Adams, no relation to that other Bryan Adams — although he will sing Summer of 69 when asked nicely. The show’s second season, consisting of 13 episodes and a noticeable upgrade in camera work and other production values, will follow the paddling pair down the Colorado River on a 2,330 journey past the Grand Canyon straight down to the U.S./Mexican border.

Lil Wayne is not only making rap history, he’s making rock ’n’ roll history. The rapper has surpassed Elvis Presley as the male with the most entries on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. Lil Wayne now has 109 songs on that chart with Thursday’s debut of Game Songs – Celebration, where he is a guest alongside Chris Brown, Tyga and Wiz Khalifa. Of his 109 charted songs, only 42 are led by Lil Wayne. Presley totalled 108 songs on the Hot 100 since it launched in 1958.

Celine Dion, Jennifer Hudson and Usher will pay tribute to the late Whitney Houston in a one-hour TV special. We Will Always Love You: A Grammy Salute to Whitney Houston will tape Oct. 11 at the Nokia Theatre L.A. live. It will air Nov. 16 on CBS. Tickets for the event go on sale Thursday. The Recording Academy announced Thursday that the special will also include Houston’s most memorable performances and interviews with various artists. More performers will be announced. Houston died at age 48 in February. Authorities called her death an accidental drowning, complicated by heart disease and cocaine use. The compilation album, I Will Always Love You — The Best of Whitney Houston, will be released on Nov. 13.

K’naan’s first book offers glimpse into his tough childhood Children’s story. When I Get Older is a window into rapper’s life growing up in his native Somalia As a newcomer to Canada, K’naan was able to find a source of both solace and expression through music. The launch of his first-ever children’s book represents a full-circle moment of sorts for the award-winning rapper, as he fuses literature, art and music to share his childhood story of the immigrant experience. While the Somali-Canadian poet and MC initially planned — and still hopes — to pen a memoir for adults, When I Get Older: The Story Behind ‘Wavin’ Flag’ documents a pivotal period of K’naan’s life geared toward a younger audience.

into life growing up in his native Somalia, and his mother’s decision for the family to flee the African country following the outbreak of civil war in 1991. It includes vibrant illustrations by Rudy Gutierrez as well as a brief summary on the history of Somalia. When I Get Older chronicles the challenges K’naan

faced adjusting to life in New York and later Toronto, where he describes feeling like an outsider in his new environment, from his clothes to contending with a crude classmate. “I thought it would be really more interesting for me — at this moment anyway — to write a little story contextualizing certain things which could seem so mythical to kids, and putting them in simple words around a song they already love,” K’naan said in a recent phone interview. Music will again be in the forefront for K’naan with the upcoming release of Country, God or the Girl on Oct. 16. The new album will include a number of high-profile collaborations, including with Bono. K’naan and the U2 frontman have previously teamed up outside of the recording studio to bring awareness to the plight of famine in Somalia. The canadian Press

Deadmau5 had lots to say in a recent interview with Metro. handout

Deadmau5 shows he’s far from the timid type Interview. Electronica superstar lashes out at Metro writer during an interview about his new album Tarin Elbert

The magic carpet that lifted Joel Zimmerman from his modest days as a computer geek in Niagara Falls, Ont., to the apex of electronica soars on. He was the first-ever electronic artist to front Rolling Stone, blew the wow-meter whistle with his Grammy performance, and just unleashed his sixth long player, already a near chart-topper in all places that matter. Deadmau5’s >album title goes here< (“There’s no message in the title,” he said during a Skype one-on-one), drives into you like a train at the get-go. From the sultry rumble of Superliminal, to the hump-hump pump of There Might Be Coffee, and the “let me do the time-warp with your head” shiver of the Close-Encounters-themed Closer, the happy beats just don’t stop. Well then, who needs “Molly?” For those who don’t know, that’s a reference to Deadmau5’s expletive-laced Facebook rant directed at Madonna, after she asked partiers at the Ultra Music Festival: “How many people in this crowd have seen Molly?” Clearly, a thinly veiled reference to the drug MDMA, also referenced in the title


A few choice quotes from the interview • Do you dance? “Not really, I am usually the head-nodder guy.” • What’s the most clubfriendly track on the album? “Closer is definitely more the clubby tune.” • Who do you listen to? “Radiohead, Nine Inch Nails, Boards of Canada, lots of different stuff.”

of the old girl’s new album. (Metro was barred from asking Deadmau5 about this.) Millions of Mouse fans, however, do have the opportunity to engage the feisty Zimmerman on social media, something he enjoys immensely. “That’s important to me… it’s opening up that transparency between artist and fans, let them know what you’re up to,” he said over Skype. “I have pretty much dedicated

my life to my career and my career to my life, to share that with other people is a wonderful thing.” When asked how he felt about some of his fans being high at his concerts, Zimmerman responded with: “You are a dumbass for making such a stupid statement — all of the fans at my show are high? Are you high right now? I don’t think that is a fair statement, I’d like to avoid that question.” No, we said some of your fans … Can you talk about what the experience is like for you, then, creating this technological orgy during your performances? “I am just too busy with my machines … I just go into auto-pilot and go through the motions, as I do every show. Just try to deliver the best quality-sounding thing, as opposed to showboating it, I mean that’s what the production gear is for,” Mouse said. “I much prefer eyes on the gear, and take care of all that and let the show itself dazzle everyone as opposed to me getting played on a CD player and fist-pumping and doing cartwheels with two leopards,” Mouse roared. What does Zimmerman think of Billy Joe Armstrong’s (Green Day) meltdown? “I did not see it, I wasn’t there and I don’t know him. I wish him well. …What does that have to do with the album?” It was a question requested from a fan, sent to Metro via Twitter. “Well, I could ask questions on Twitter.” Dead silence … Deadmau5 killed the call. Ouch, this Mouse has claws.

Is Gaga a slut?

Lady Gaga has a lot of friends around the world, but Staten Island Borough President James Molinaro is definitely not one of them. “There’s Gaga. I would call her a slut. This slut is influencing many, many children,” Molinaro said at an anti-drug event earlier this week, criticizing Gaga’s recent actions at a concert in Amsterdam during which she smoked marijuana on

stage. “She’s a slut in the pure word, in the pure meaning of the word,” he explained. “A slut is someone that’s immoral or uses improper conduct. So she’s using improper conduct. So she’s a slut. Anyone that would expose people that look up to them and who their idol is, to the use of narcotics, to me is a slut, male or female. It doesn’t matter.”

if you sort of sense there’s an incompatibility, then in any relationship regardless of the status of the individual, it kind of is best to go separate ways,” he says. “I think if you’re a devoted tennis professional and you get married to a crystal meth addict, you might have trouble. I’ve been in a lot of trouble.”

The new trend in Hollywood baby names? Naming your child after a geographical location. In the past month, Nick Lachey and wife Vanessa Minnillo named their baby Camden, as did Kristin Cavallari and fiancé Jay Cutler. Next up in the locale-asa-name trend? Reese Witherspoon, who gave birth to a baby boy named Tennessee James on Thursday. “Reese Witherspoon and husband Jim Toth welcomed Tennessee James into their family today,” her rep confirmed to People magazine. “Both mom and baby are healthy and the entire family is thrilled.” For those of you who are keeping track at home (and hopefully none of you are), let me bear the brunt of this useless information for you. There’s also Brooklyn Cruz (son of Victoria and David Beckham),

Bronx Mowgli Wentz (son of Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz, Egypt (son of Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz), Paris Jackson (daughter of Michael Jackson and some very wellpaid egg donor), and India Hemsworth (daughter of Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky). As for me, I’m holding out for a little Tajikistan Spears some time in the near future. What if it’s all been a lie? So much time, effort and column space has been spent dissecting the marriage (Demi is a cougar!) and the eventual divorce (Ashton likes cheap, young Vegas tail!) between Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore.

Liquid Assets

Germany can compliment India’s finest LIQUID ASSETS

Peter Rockwell @therealwineguy

Readers are always asking me for a cheat sheet to help them make the perfect food and wine pairing. While I really wish I had one, the best advice I can give is to look for synergy. By that I mean eats and drinks that originate in the same place always taste better together. The closer the origins of both the liquid and solid are, the better the marriage will be because winemaking is the yin to the culinary industry’s yang. So what do you do when a country is famous for its unique cuisine but not for its wine output? India is a classic example. Though it’s been pressing grapes for decades, it doesn’t export much and the eclectic nature of a plate of Indianthemed eatables is almost grounds for divorce when trying to create the perfect wine marriage. The crisp effervescence of a dry sparkling wine is a good way to go. As is a white with a hint of sweetness. The Germans do that kind of vino best, with Schmitt Söhne’s 2011 Relax Riesling — a bright, refreshing wine that will soften the blow of even the most aggressive curried dishes.

Make a dessert that will certainly take the cake Dessert. The star of Ace of Cakes, Duff Goldman, offers advice to home bakers trying to master sweet treats meredith engel

Metro World News in New York

Having conquered the world of cakes (and reality TV), Ace of Cakes star Duff Goldman went right to his next challenge: chocolates. Though we met up with him to learn about his new cake-inspired truffle collection for Godiva, we couldn’t help but ask how to make a cake the highlight of any party. Here’s his advice for home bakers everywhere. Be a cake whisperer “The cake — this is gonna sound weird — but it does talk to you. It tells you what (it wants). You have a white

cake and there’s nothing on it, you put one thing on there and all of a sudden you’re just like, ‘Oh, now I need to do this.’ The human mind seeks harmony. I’m serious — you want things to work. A major chord sounds really good, a chord that isn’t played right doesn’t sound good, and there’s a reason: We want harmony. Same thing with when you’re making a cake.” Let your nose guide you “When the cake’s in the oven, your nose will tell you when it’s done. And you develop that sense. Any pastry chef will tell you: They stop setting timers after a year. When I was working at a hotel in Colorado, I could put something in the oven and just leave, call and be like, ‘Hey, can you go in the bakery and pull out the tray of cookies in there? They’re done.’” Don’t buy cookbook



Goldman swears that the best cake recipes may be right under your nose, at your school’s or church’s bake sale. “Chefs (have) really low self-esteem. They get very paranoid and they don’t want to tell people their secrets. Most chefs, when they write a cookbook, chances are they leave a little ingredient out or they change a little something — or maybe they just found a recipe online, tweaked it a little bit and put it in a book. But the church bake sale? Betty Blue McMillan, she wants you to make those cookies right.” Conquer the calligraphy Is your “Happy Birthday” always illegible? Goldman’s got the solution. “I have a very shaky hand,” he says. “When you’re decorating, lift the tip of the bag off the cake a little bit. That takes the wiggle out. Lift it up and lay it down, and then as it lays down it lays down in a nice, straight line.”

Make perfect buttercream

We scored tips from Elisabeth Allwein, the director of product development for Cheryl’s Desserts, a U.S.-based maker of sweets. • Use real ingredients. “It’s

real vanilla, real peppermint extract, nice coca ­— it’s the real ingredients and then the way you mix them.”

• Don’t let your ingredients

get too warm. “I don’t leave my butter out for too long because I don’t want it to get too warm and almost broken down during the mixing process.”

• Get creative. “I think of

buttercream as the canvas and then I embellish it. If I want it to be something that’s more comforting and homey for this season, I might put a little maple syrup in it.

Just Opened: Tallboys Craft Beer Bar Just a couple of weeks ago, the city got another injection of craft beer excellence with the opening of Tallboys Craft Beer House at 838 Bloor St. W. This Bloorcourt area bar/pub focuses on, not surprisingly, craft beers served in tallboy cans. It also features a notable selection of grub like the Koreatown burger and Basa fish tacos.

Just Opened: Momofuku Noodle Bar Rejoice, ladies and gents, because the first of David Chang’s Momofuko restaurants has opened up in the illustrious ShangriLa Hotel (190 University Ave.). Noodle Bar is all about the ramen — exceedingly gourmet ramen that is. (Try the Kimchi Stew, dare you not to love it.) Also on slate are his famed stuffed buns and some noteworthy bites like the smoked chicken wings.

Just Opened: 25 Liberty Where will you find 25 Liberty, the newly opened bistro in Liberty Village? At 25 Liberty St., of course. Luckily, the food found within goes much further than the moniker’s creativity. Think beautiful beef carpaccio, rack of lamb with stuffed artichokes, and truffle risotto. The latest haute comfort food spot also boasts a rich room with vibrant orange banquettes amidst white walls and walnut floors.

The other St. Patrick’s Day Celebrate that oh-soBavarian of traditions at the St. Lawrence Market’s north building on Oct. 4 at Toronto Oktoberfest. Lederhosen is optional, beer is not at this “authentic Bavarian festival.” Join hundreds of others as they ring in Oktoberfest in notable style, replete with dancers, brews and tons of surprises all ready to celebrate what some like to call the “other St. Patty’s Day.”

Paws for the cause gala On Oct. 11 at 99 Sudbury, the dogs are back for the third annual Paws Gala in support of Paws for the Cause, an amazing endeavour that raises funds to help support the Central Ontario Veterinary Referral Program.

League cancels entire pre-season

Chelsea captain John Terry was banned for four matches on Thursday for racially abusing an opponent in English soccer’s most high-profile racism case.

Tigers Triple Crown contender Miguel Cabrera watches his home run leave the park on Sept. 16 in Cleveland.


Entering the home stretch to history MLB. Tigers’ Cabrera has real shot at Triple Crown as season nears end

Miguel Cabrera’s drive sailed high into the Detroit night — so high, in fact, that leftfielder Alex Gordon had time to drift over to the fence and wait a couple seconds before reaching over and robbing the slugger of a home run. That snapshot was a good example of why nobody has won baseball’s Triple Crown in 45 years. It takes a special blend of power, discipline, consistency — and yes, luck, if you believe in such a thing. But Cabrera is making perhaps the strongest bid since Carl Yastrzemski accomplished the feat in 1967. With six games remain-

ing, Detroit’s 29-year-old third baseman tops the American League in batting average and RBIs and trails home-run leader Josh Hamilton by only one. “I heard a lot from the fans about the Triple Crown. I can’t repeat most of it, but I’m sure you can guess,” said Gordon, the Kansas City outfielder who did his part to slow Cabrera’s pursuit by taking that homer away Wednesday night. Cabrera won his first batting title last year, hitting .344 to complete a “career triple crown” after winning home run and RBI titles in previous seasons. Now he’s trying to become the first player since Yastrzemski to sweep all three categories in the same season. Yastrzemski figures it’s only a matter of time before somebody new joins the club. Since his Triple Crown season, other

seemingly unapproachable marks have been surpassed. “When Rose broke Cobb’s hit record, I never thought that would happen,” Yastrzemski said. “When Ripken broke Gehrig’s consecutive game record, I never thought that would happen either. So it’s going to happen.” In 1967, Yastrzemski hit

.326 with 44 homers and 121 RBIs. After Thursday’s 5-4 victory over Kansas City, Cabrera was hitting .326 with 42 homers and 133 RBIs. “I want to keep my game the same way,” Cabrera said recently. “I don’t want to put extra pressure because we’ve got a lot of pressure right now in our division. I think it’s going to be a big mistake if I put extra pressure on myself.” Jeff Bagwell was the only recent player to finish in the top two in each Triple Crown category; in the strike-shortened 1994 season, he was first in RBIs and second in both average and homers. In 1992, Gary Sheffield led the National League in hitting but finished two behind in the home-run race and nine back in RBIs. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

The NHL’s collective bargaining talks are set to restart with a session that is likely to run through the weekend. And with the league announcing the cancellation of the remainder of the preseason on Thursday, negotiations will have to pick up steam to prevent the loss of meaningful games. The league and NHL Players’ Association have blocked off Friday, Saturday and Sunday for meetings in New York after spending more than two weeks away from the bargaining table. The talks resume with the scheduled Oct. 11 start to the regular season drawing near. THE CANADIAN PRESS NFL

Regular referees return to the field The replacement officials are gone and the NFL is sorry it took so long. Now fans can go back to complaining about the calls made by the regular refs.

Not so durable in Double Blue?

Mitchell yet to be subdued by Lions

Bombers in tough vs. Jackson

Injured Toronto QB Ricky Ray gets loads of accolades for his skill level and Grey Cup titles, but rarely do fans remember his durability. Although out this week with a sprained MCL, other than a five-game stretch in Edmonton a few years ago, Ray has never missed more than one game in a season since his rookie year in 2002.

Lions brass can’t allow Khalif Mitchell to parade his bogus account for his on-field “throat-slash” gestures last weekend in Edmonton. Mitchell was fined for making the banned gestures towards his opponents. The Lions need to assess similar punishment for their player, who apparently thinks league rules don’t apply to him.

Bombers coach Tim Burke must be excited his defence won’t face the injured Ray on Saturday against Toronto. That said, the Bombers won’t have an easy time earning a second straight win as Ray has been replaced by Jarious Jackson. Burke coached against Jackson in U.S. college, and says he “respects” Jackson’s mobility and arm strength.

3 5 1 CFL’s own ref mess

A big difference between the CFL and NFL is the media’s treatment of inept officiating. When Tristan Jackson’s obvious pass interference against Johnny Forzani went uncalled on a key third down late in the Riders-Stamps game last week, TSN’s Glen Suitor suggested it was a “close call.” But replays showed Jackson should have been flagged.

Risky business in Edmonton backfield

The Eskimos QB carousel is expected to take another turn this week when backup Matt Nichols makes his first start at quarterback Friday in Calgary. Injured Steven Jyles is apparently healthy enough to play, but was booed by his hometown crowd during last week’s loss to B.C. Kerry Joseph, a more palatable option, is also on the mend, leaving the offence in Nichols’ inexperienced hands.

Cornish bears public punishment

Jon Cornish took the “cl” out of class this week by mooning fans in Regina, and the Stamps endured heaps of public embarrassment as president Lyle Bauer, head coach John Hufnagel and Cornish issued apologies. Cornish probably should have been suspended, but the humiliation the franchise has endured through this incident is punishment enough.

Scott Milanovich decided it was time to bring in the big gun. With his team having lost two straight, the starting quarterback on the sidelines and a pivotal road game looming, the head coach called on Mike (Pinball) Clemons to inspire the players Thursday. Mission accomplished. “(He’s) one of the greatest players ever in this league,” said quarterback Jarious Jackson, who will start Saturday in Winnipeg in place of Ricky Ray, who injured his knee in last Sunday’s loss in Montreal. “Just being around him gives you goose bumps, and gets you

And, he did a great job. The guys enjoy it.” Torstar News Service

Leaf-bound players excited for AHL season Quoted NHL lockout. Training camps around the AHL I’m going to go out and do is try and have a opened Thursday with “All good start with the Marlies here. We’ll see where established NHLers like things end up.” Jordan Eberle present Goaltender Ben Scrivens says he’s grateful for the chance to play during the NHL lockout

There were no long faces as the Toronto Marlies reported for the first day of work in a season that began with as much excitement as it did uncertainty. Even the handful of players that were bound to be Maple Leafs rather than Marlies — at least if there wasn’t a NHL lockout — had no trouble seeing the bright side of their situation. “It’s going to get us ready,” forward Nazem Kadri said Thursday. “Once something does get resolved, we’re going to be already in skating shape and mid-season form (and we’ll) be able to step into that NHL training camp all ready to go.” Kadri split time between the AHL and NHL the last two seasons and spent part of his summer working out under the watchful eye of Gary Roberts. It was done with the goal of playing out of the Air Canada Centre rather t h a n

Ricoh Coliseum this year, an aspiration that remains on hold because of the NHL’s labour dispute. Goaltender Ben Scrivens and blue-liners Jake Gardiner and Korbinian Holzer were also expected to play for the Maple Leafs — and might yet get to do so if a new collective bargaining agreement can be drafted. The possibility of only spending a short amount of time in the AHL is something Scrivens admits will be in the back of his mind, although he was quick to add that he’s grateful for the opportunity to have somewhere to play during the lockout. “You can’t

help but acknowledge that (a promotion to the NHL is) a possibility, but I can’t control anything like that,” said Scrivens. The Toronto players are hardly alone in their situation. Training camps around the AHL opened Thursday with established NHLers, including Ryan NugentHopkins and Jordan Eberle reporting to Oklahoma City, Jeff Skinner suiting up in Charlotte, and Adam Henrique joining Albany. The presence of so many quality players and the extra attention being paid to North America’s top developmental league during the lockout has brought a noticeable buzz to the AHL. For the Marlies, that only added to the positive momentum they built during a run to

the Calder Cup final in the spring. The team expects to start the season playing in front of sellout crowds that include key members of the Maple Leafs hockey operations staff, including general manager Brian Burke. Above all else, that’s why Marlies coach Dallas Eakins isn’t worried about seeing a letdown from the players who might otherwise have been in the NHL. “You’re being watched every night here,” said Eakins. “There is not a night where one of my bosses are not upstairs watching these players and our guys know that. So if you’re going to come in to camp unmotivated, I’m going to drop you down to the bottom of the list, your ice time will be cut and it will be impossible for you to get a shot.” Making a strong impression in the AHL will be more important than ever because NHL training camps will almost certainly be shortened once a new agreement is reached. That’s just another reason why players are viewing their chance to spend the lockout in the minors as an opportunity rather than a burden. “This is a developmental league, it’s a league to prepare you,” said Kadri. “Being here for one more year or one month or two months or three months is really not going to hurt anybody.” the canadian press

Gala concludes ’72 celebrations

pick the winners and you could win big. Visit for a tutorial.


Paul Henderson still can’t explain it, even 40 years later. Sitting on the bench with time winding down in the eighth and final game of the ’72 Summit Series, Henderson abruptly stood up and yelled at Pete Mahovlich to come off. “I felt I had to get on the ice,” Henderson recalled recently. “A tie was no good, they were going to claim victory because they had scored more goals than we did. I really wish I had an answer, but I don’t. I just felt I had to get out there, I felt I could score a goal.” He was right, of course. Henderson fired a rebound past the Soviet Union’s Vladislav Tretiak to give Canada a series-clinching 6-5 victory at Moscow’s Luzhniki Ice Palace. Exactly 40 years to the day after that iconic goal, the 69-year-old Henderson and the remaining members of the Canadian squad will cap a month of celebrations with a gala dinner Friday night. “Thank goodness Peter thought it was a coach yelling at him and came over the boards and I jumped over,” Henderson said. Henderson, who has been battling cancer since 2010, was one of Canada’s top goal scorers in the Summit Series. But his deciding goal remains one of the biggest and most memorable in Canadian hockey history, a fact he didn’t really appreciate until watching Sidney Crosby’s winning goal for Canada at the 2010 Winter Games in Vancouver. “I think one of the things we don’t do well as Canadians is celebrate a lot of

times, but especially with hockey,” Henderson said. “When Crosby scored, man, I was jumping up and down and so I understand what Canadians were doing when I scored.” But Henderson wouldn’t have scored if not for Phil Esposito, the heart and soul of the ’72 team who fired the first shot at Tretiak. “I was at the faceoff dot to the right of Tretiak,” Esposito said. “(Soviet defencemen Yuri) Liapkin and (Valeri) Vasiliev screwed up and the puck squirted and I was skating backwards to go back and I just shot it at the net. “Like nine out of 10 times I hit the net, I very seldom missed the net when I had an opportunity to hit it ... and Tretiak, for some unexplained reason, pushed the rebound straight out and Paul, who had fallen behind the net, got up and

came out because they must have lost him, just came out and put the rebound in.” Goaltender Ken Dryden, another Montreal Canadien, skated the length of the ice to celebrate Henderson’s goal with his teammates before the reality of the situation set in. “I have no recollection except I do remember the celebration of it,” Dryden said. “I remember clunking down the ice and being in that pile of celebration and then

thinking, ‘I’ve got to get hold of myself, there’s still 34 seconds to go, get a grip.’” Hollywood couldn’t have written it better, Henderson said. “I’m 69 and I can’t think of anybody who has lived a better life than I have, even with cancer,” he said. “I wouldn’t change places with anybody. “Canadians celebrate this, I get it every day, and I think it was a meaningful time for Canadians who were alive and can remember at that point.” The Canadian Press

play WEEKEND, September 28-30, 2012



March 21 - April 20 Try to see those you deal with as individuals in their own right rather than as pieces on a chessboard to be moved at your whim. Paying attention to other people’s needs today will bring benefits to you as well.


April 21 - May 21 Take stock of your daily routine and decide where you can make savings in time and effort. Also make sure your physical health is not compromised in any way. If you feel you need a break then take one.


May 22 - June 21 Saturn, the taskmaster of the zodiac, moves out of your fellow Air sign of Libra in a week or so but already it feels as if your personal load is less heavy. Try not being quite so serious about life.


June 22 - July 23 You need to focus more on domestic matters today, and that means less time for social activities. There will be plenty of time for fun and games later but for now you must put loved ones first.


July 24 - Aug. 23 Interesting new people will come into your life today and over the weekend, the kind of people who inspire you and know how to make you laugh. All in all, the world seems a better, happier, sunnier place.


Aug. 24 - Sept. 23 Both at home and at work you are encouraged to pay more attention to the value you place on both possessions and relationships. Some things are worth fighting for. Some things are for life. Do you know what they are?

By michael WiEsenberg

Canadian Spellings Featured


Sept. 24 - Oct. 23 As Saturn nears the end of its two-year journey through your sign, you should look back and learn from events that may not always have been to your liking. Admit it: they’ve made you a better person.


Oct. 24 - Nov. 22 You need to face up to problems that you have somehow managed to avoid these past few months. You can hide your feelings from others but you cannot hide them from yourself, so do what has to be done — now!


Nov. 23 - Dec. 21 The planets are asking you to push your pride to one side and admit, if only to yourself, that you don’t know all the answers. This can be a time of positive change in your life, but you must be humble.


Dec. 22 - Jan. 20 Saturn, your ruler, is making its last push through the career area of your chart, so opportunities on the work front can be expected. The fact is you are capable of so much more — so start doing it.


Jan. 21 - Feb. 19 If knowledge is power then you will gain in strength over the next few days and by the time Saturn changes signs on Oct. 5, you will be on your way to fame and glory. Will it really be that good? Yes!
