Danger under Gardiner: Report Highway hell. Engineering firm’s review differs from city’s ‘visual’ inspection The underbelly of the Gardiner Expressway is rife with deteriorating chunks of concrete that present a “significant hazard to public safety,” an outside engineering firm hired by the City of Toronto has concluded. IBI Group found serious

problems with the way city engineers go about identifying these problem zones. Its independent analysis uncovered sizeable cracks, spalls (pieces that have detached from a larger mass), problematic patches, and splitting in six areas where the city found “no signs of surface deterioration.” But the report also cautions it is impossible to guarantee concrete won’t fall off in the future, no matter what precautions are taken. The outside engineers recommended that the city im-

plement protective measures, such as debris netting, fibrereinforced plastic, and closing areas beneath the Gardiner to pedestrians. This damaging report — finished just days before the two top bureaucrats in charge of the Gardiner file left their jobs — was released to Torstar News Service through a freedom of information request. Emails and briefings indicate the problem is larger than acknowledged, with some confirmed and potential incidents never coming to light.

The first reports of concrete falling off the 60-year-old Gardiner Expressway surfaced in the summer of 2011. Chunks ranging in size from a toonie to a baseball have been documented in media reports. Half a dozen instances made headlines between May and July of this year. In the months after, city staff and public works chair Denzil Minnan-Wong appeared in print and on television to assure the public the highway is safe. When asked about the IBI Group’s find-

ings, Coun. Minnan-Wong at first appeared irritated. He had not seen a copy. Several hours later, the public works chair said the city had work to do. “We commissioned a peer review to determine if our visual inspection was sufficient. And it turns out that we were correct to do that, because we found it was insufficient,” said Minnan-Wong. “I should have seen this earlier,” he added. Minnan-Wong said the committee is moving to increase capital spending on

How it’s done • The firm’s review —

which was subcontracted to Coffey Geotechnics — was conducted over five days in late August and early September using sound technology. The City of Toronto relies on visual inspections.

Teen boy charged after sexting investigation

Students standing up to bullying coast to coast Grade 8 students from Claude Watson School for the Arts in North York rehearse for a play Thursday about the Reena Virk bullying case.

Province to teachers: Ignore union advice ‘A way forward’. Laurel Broten seeks meeting with ETFO president after her reviled bill leaves teachers, Liberals at an impasse A move by Ontario elementary teachers to minimize comments on report cards has sparked waves of political comment, with Education Minister

Quoted

“Teachers have every right to express their concerns with the government, but it should be expressed to the government, not by taking actions that put at risk the success of our students.” Education Minister Laurel Broten

Laurel Broten giving the idea an F, while the teachers’ union claimed it’s playing by the rules. “The bare minimum is not good enough for the students

of this province,” Broten said Thursday after the Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario (ETFO) advised members to fill in only the minimum of comments on fall progress reports

— a sentence, perhaps, rather than a paragraph — to protest the province’s unpopular wagefreeze bill. Broten said she has invited ETFO president Sam Hammond to a meeting early next week. Hammond released a statement saying he looks forward to meeting with the minister. However, Broten warned that a report card with lots of blank space will “leave parents in the dark” and implored teachers to ignore the advice. TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

A teenage boy is facing charges after a teenage girl was exploited through sexting, according to Toronto police. Police said the boy and girl started a six-monthlong relationship online, through a social media site. During this time, police said the girl sent intimate photos of herself to the boy. He allegedly used the photos to try to coerce her into sending him a video of herself. After she refused, the boy allegedly hacked into the girl’s email account and sent the lewd photos to her email contacts. Sex Crimes Unit Det. Const. Dayna Boyko said “the girl is very upset about the situation” but was brave enough to come forward to the police. The boy is charged with extortion, threatening death, and making, possession and distribution of child pornography. TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE Open lot

New Jane Jacobs Park for downtown? The City of Toronto is poised to bid on a derelict downtown lot in hopes it can be transformed into a park instead of yet another thicket of condominiums. Coun. Kristyn WongTam is leading the charge to buy 11 Wellesley St. W., east of Queen’s Park, and turn it into a park named for Jane Jacobs, the celebrated Toronto-based urbanist who died in 2006. The Ontario government owns the 2.1-acre lot, between Wellesley and Breadalbane streets and Yonge and Bay streets, which has languished since the 1980s. TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

How pandas made it to T.O. Diplomatic persistence. Michaëlle Jean asked Chinese president three times before he agreed to panda loan Former governor general Michaëlle Jean asked China’s president three times during a high-level government reception in 2010 before he finally agreed to loan us the two giant pandas headed here next spring. During an event the zoo held Thursday to show work going on at its revamped enclosure that will house pandas Ji Li and Er Shun for five years, Dr. Ming Tat Cheung, a Toronto cardiologist and Toronto Zoo board member, described the encounter that paved the way for the animals’ visit to Canada. Cheung, who at the time

headed the zoo’s Panda Acquisition Task Force, believes that without Jean’s polite diplomatic persistence, the long sought after agreement with the Chinese may have taken much longer to secure. Intense back channel discussions that included the zoo, officials in Ottawa, and Chinese officials had been going on for some time before then, but with no major breakthrough. But Cheung says the key conversation happened during a reception in Beijing, held on the last of a six-day trip Jean and Cheung took to China in the summer of 2010. Cheung says he vividly remembers Jean sitting beside the Chinese president at a table and telling him three times that Canada wanted to have the pandas. “The president, he kept changing the subject. Finally he said OK,” Cheung recalls.

Headed to the zoo

The Toronto Zoo’s giant panda exhibit is situated in the zoo’s Eurasia section. The completed renovation will feature two outdoor exhibit areas, which include climbing structures, and a pool. • A September 2009 staff

report predicted the animals would boost attendance by 450,000 visitors in the first year, by 150,000 the second year, by a small number in the third year, and none at all in years four and five, when the novelty trails off.

• In 1985 Qing Qing and Quan Quan, the last pandas to visit Toronto, stayed for a 100-day visit.

TTC makes case for relief line

A TTC study on the potential for a new “downtown relief” subway line paints a nearapocalyptic vision of commuting to Toronto’s core by 2031 — if transit officials don’t come up with a relief valve. The level of overcrowding, with demand up by a projected 50 per cent, will dwarf today’s discomfort on the Yonge subway. Existing plans to increase GO and TTC capacity won’t be enough to stem the overflow of commuters trying to get into the downtown core every day, according to the report that goes before the TTC board on Wednesday. By then, the population living south of College

A new high

The TTC broke a ridership record, carrying 510 million transit users between Oct. 3, 2011 and Oct. 2 of this year. The system is on track to carry 514 million riders by the end of this year.

Street between Bathurst and Parliament will nearly double. Employment is projected to grow 28 per cent, and demand for transit downtown will jump to 236,000 trips in the morning peak, from 155,000 now. “The most serious capacity issues are related to long- and

medium-distance trips from the east and north,” says the Downtown Rapid Transit Expansion Study. Crowding on the Yonge-University-Spadina subway line, which carries about 30,000 people an hour in the morning rush, will be further exacerbated by riders boarding at new stations on the Spadina subway extension into York Region, set to open in 2016. A second phase of the study will look at what route and stations the relief line would use. But maps in the report suggest a DRL running south from Pape, west along King Street to St. Andrew Station.

They must spend an additional three years under community supervision. Torstar News Service

Dropout Drake says he’s pumped after finally graduating high school While winters continue to become milder than 20 years ago, this coming one will snap back into the steadily below-zero temperatures and snow shovelling of the late 1990s. LUCAS OLENIUK/torstar news service

No repeat of last year’s mild winter: Forecasters Snow, followed by small children on sleds. That paraphrase of a famous old newspaper weather forecast pretty much sums up the winter Toronto can expect, according to meteorologists. “Assuming this forecast goes right,” AccuWeather senior meteorologist Brett Anderson added as a proviso after detailing the long-range predictions. “It’s back to reality after a ridiculously short winter last year.” The private U.S. weather forecasting company took a jab in August at predicting the coming Toronto winter and will update its prognostications again in November.

As a public-service provider, Ottawa’s Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario offers the same treatment for autism as a private clinic, but it also has the role of allocating funds used at private clinics and competes for the same qualified staff. Some argue there’s an inherent conflict of interest in the arrangement. sean mckibbon/metro

Are private clinics losing out in the funding stakes? Autism. Regional treatment providers oversee funding for private service while providing the public option — and some worry there’s a conflict of interest ALEX BOUTILIER

Metro in Ottawa

After 17 months of waiting for funding for treatment of her son’s autism, Anne Rahming was at her breaking point. Her four-year-old son, Mića Jovanović, had been in a private clinic since he was diagnosed with severe autism spectrum disorder. During that time, Rahming paid about $80,000 out-of-pocket to keep Mića in intensive behavioural intervention, a therapy designed to teach him to interact with the world. Rahming had applied for funding to keep Mića with his team at Portia Learning Centre in Kanata. After waiting for more than a year, she was offered a spot at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario, something she didn’t want, for fear Mića would lose progress by starting from scratch in new surroundings. She says she was told it would be another year before she got funding to keep Mića at Portia. She was going to go public with her story, and said

Susan Richardson, vice-president of patient services at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario in Ottawa. contributed

as much to the Ministry of Children and Youth Services (MCYS). “Coincidentally, on the same day that I alerted the AIPEO (Autism Intervention Program of Eastern Ontario), we were offered DFO (direct funding option) for our son,” Rahming wrote in an official complaint to the provincial ombudsman. The Ministry of Children and Youth Services doles out funding for intensive behavioural intervention to regional providers. Those regional providers, such as the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO), then divvy it up among families in their area. Demand outstrips funding, so regional providers have waiting lists. Families can apply for direct service — a spot in the hospital’s program — or direct funding, which can be used for private clinics. The gist of Rahming’s

complaint is that public providers of intensive behavioural intervention are essentially in a conflict of interest. She points to a 2004 ombudsman’s report that found public-service providers are in direct competition for a limited supply of qualified staff in the field. “It would seem there has long been an understanding at MCYS that regional service providers are, indeed, market competitors within this process — and ones who are also market shapers, it would seem,” Rahming wrote. Susan Richardson, CHEO’s vice-president of patient services, doesn’t think there’s a conflict in offering the same service as private clinics, as well as overseeing funding for families using them. “We are very focused on what is in the best interest of children. That’s our incentive,” Richardson says. “We don’t get more money. We have a fixed budget.” Richardson says the ministry funds intervention at public-service providers such as CHEO out of a separate pot from the money set aside for private providers such as Portia, despite having a single waiting list. The regional provider is simply complying with the program framework set forth by the ministry, Richardson says. But that’s cold comfort for hundreds of Ontario families such as Rahming’s, butting their heads against the system — or worse, those who can’t afford to give their children the same chance Mića has.

Independent mediator

Ministry setting up complaints board The provincial government is in the midst of creating an independent appeal board for complaints about intensive behavioural intervention (IBI), Ontario’s minister of children and youth services says. “Outside of our regional offices and outside of those facilities that offer autism services, there’s going to be an independent mechanism that parents can go to if they’re unhappy or if they disagree with a decision based on eligibility for IBI or based on a discharge decision,” Dr. Eric Hoskins says. He adds that the province recently raised funding for applied behavioural analysis, the broader treatment umbrella under which IBI falls, by $25 million. The ministry expects that 8,000 children will benefit from that investment. alex boutilier/metro

Anne Rahming waited 17 months for funding for treatment of her son’s autism. Mića Jovanović, who turns five next month, is in the intensive behavioural intervention program at the private Portia Learning Centre in Kanata, a suburb of Ottawa. Mike Carroccetto/for METRO How the waiting list works • Children deemed eligible

for intensive behavioural intervention get placed on the waiting list.

• At the time, parents are

asked if they want the direct service option offered by public providers (DSO) or the direct funding option for private clinics

(DFO). • The family at the top of

the list is offered the first spot that opens up, be it DSO or DFO.

• That family can refuse and

remain at the top of the list until their preferred option is available.

Gatekeeper

“The ministry basically gives us funding for (the public service), funding for (the private service) and we’re told to administer the waiting list based on the guidelines they provide.” Ann Fuller, spokeswoman for the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario, on the role of public-service providers in making funding available for treatment of autism

U.S. president’s daughters’ school evacuated The D.C. private school attended by the daughters of President Barack Obama says it briefly evacuated after it received a phone call that it considered suspicious.

A Bangladeshi man snared in an FBI terror sting considered targeting U.S. President Barack Obama before settling on a car bomb attack on The Federal Reserve in New York City, a law enforcement official told The Associated Press on Thursday. The official, who was not authorized to speak publicly about the investigation and talked to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity, stressed that the suspect never got beyond the discussion stage.

TORONTO MOVES: FOR SCHEDULES AND MORE, GO TO TTC.CA

CHARTING A FIVE-YEAR COURSE OF ACTION ANDY BYFORD CEO TORONTO TRANSIT COMMISSION

Last week, I talked about the new TTC vision statement: “A transit system that makes Toronto proud,” and how that forms the first element of our 10-point program to transform and modernize the TTC.

The second element is the development of a strategic plan and associated goals, targets and measures to track our progress. This is essentially a master plan to paint a picture of how the TTC will look in five years, and to set out how we achieve our vision. While the plan will cover physical improvements to the network, it also needs to describe what we will do to change how you feel you are treated and valued as a customer.

In addition to details around the big ticket items like new streetcars and migration to a PRESTO smart card, a lot needs to be done in terms of our management style and capability, and our delivery of more consistent customer service across the system. Where are we thus far? The first draft of the plan is nearing completion. It is built around a suite of business goals that, between them, will deliver a transformed

MAKING THE TTC THE EASIER WAY The Toronto Transit Commission is committed to making travelling on the system easier for persons with disabilities and for seniors, and to improving access to the conventional system for all of our customers. All 1,800 TTC buses are now accessible, providing an extensive network of accessible service in the city. You will recognize an accessible TTC bus by the blue international wheelchair symbol displayed above the front right bumper next to the entrance door, and by the blue lights on either side of the route destination sign above the windshield. You will recognize an accessible bus stop by the blue international wheelchair symbol on the bus stop pole. Reminder: Not all stops along accessible routes are accessible. Lift or ramp-equipped and low-floor buses are designed to carry customers who are unable to board, or have difficulty boarding conventional buses. These include people who use wheelchairs, scooters, walkers, crutches, or canes and for those who do not use a visible mobility aid, but who would benefit from using a lift or ramp. In addition, today, most stations have escalators and more than half of our subway and Scarborough Rapid Transit

Today, more than half of our subway/RT stations are accessible. stations are equipped with elevators and other accessible features. Station features include automatic sliding entrance doors, easier access fare gates, intercoms on the interior and exterior of elevators, and a closed-circuit TV on each elevator. Updates on the operating status of our elevators and escalators are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Customers can get updates by calling 416 539-LIFT (5438), the TTC Information Line at 416 393-INFO (4636) and pressing 5 (or TTY 416 481-2523), or by accessing “Elevators and Escalators” on the TTC website.

SERVICE CHANGES Construction: • 72A Pape buses will divert via Church, Wellington, York, King, Church, The Esplanade for work related to the Union Station Second Platform and Concourse Improvements Project until December. • 59 Maple Leaf buses are diverting via Maple Leaf, Uphill, Pelmo, Gary, Oak, Weston, John, Elm, Church until Nov. 10 due to the Metrolinx-GO Transit

HOW TO CONTACT US

The new Toronto Rocket subway trains feature many accessible features, including multi-purpose areas for customers with mobility devices. And the news keeps getting better. The next generation of TTC streetcars will be fully accessible. The first test streetcar has already arrived in Toronto. Accessible, low-floor streetcar service is scheduled to begin in 2014 when the first of 204 low-floor streetcars begin replacing the existing streetcars. Low-floor streetcars will be more comfortable, more spacious, and yes, equipped with air conditioning.

CLOSURES Rail Expansion Project. • 506-306 Carlton diverting via Ossington, Dundas, Bay, Oct. 20-22. Shuttle buses will operate. • 509 Harbourfront streetcars replaced by buses until spring 2013. • 510 Spadina streetcars replaced by buses until Nov. 18. For more information on these and other routes, please visit www.ttc.ca.

From midnight Friday, Oct. 26, to Sunday, Oct. 28, the Bloor-Danforth line will be closed from Keele to Kipling Stations for scheduled track construction. Frequent, accessible shuttle buses will operate from Keele to Kipling Stations. One Wheel-Trans vehicle will be on standby at Dundas West Station. Regular subway service resumes Monday, Oct. 29.

TTC. Once finalized, the plan will be used to drive improvement across all areas of our service. Progress will be tracked via Key Performance Indicators so we know where more focus is required. It will also be used as a tool to keep staff and managers apprised of how we’re doing and the direction in which we need to head. It’s all part of what makes the TTC CEO job such an interesting and compelling challenge.

Scout ‘perversion files’ made public Alleged abuse. Nearly 15,000 pages of documented sex abuse allegations involving the scouts were released Thursday U.S. Boy Scout leaders, police officials, prosecutors and mayors helped hush up numerous child sex abuse

allegations against scoutmasters and other volunteers, according to details in a trove of nearly 15,000 pages of so-called “perversion files” compiled by the Scouts from 1959 to the mid-1980s. Portland attorney Kelly Clark released the files on Thursday online. The Associated Press obtained copies of the files weeks in advance and con-

ducted an extensive review of them. The files document allegations of sex abuse by Scouting volunteers across the country. The Scouts have been collecting the documents since the early 1900s and continue to do so. At a news conference, Clark blasted the Boy Scouts for their continuing legal battles to try to keep the full collection of files secret.

“You do not keep secrets hidden about dangers to children,’’ said Clark, who in 2010 won a landmark lawsuit against the Boy Scouts on behalf of a plaintiff who was molested by an assistant scoutmaster in the 1980s. Clark’s colleague, Paul Mones, said the files in the Portland case represent “the pain and anguish of thousands of Scouts” who were abused by Scout leaders.

The two attorneys were releasing all 14,500 documents used in the Portland case at their website: kellyclarkattorney.com. Clark has been in possession of the files since he represented a Portland man who was abused by his assistant scoutmaster in the 1980s. That lawsuit culminated in a jury finding in his client’s favour in 2010. The Associated Press

Apology. Dunham takes back Homolka tweet that ‘crossed that line’ Girls star Lena Dunham is apologizing for making a Paul Bernardo joke on Twitter that drew immediate fire from Canadian fans. The 26-year-old HBO phenom suggested she and her celebrity friends dress up as Bernardo, Karla Homolka and one of their victims for Halloween. She said in a tweet to fellow comics Mindy Kaling and B.J. Novak: “You guys go as killer Canadian couple Paul Bernardo & Karla Homolka. I’ll be her sister they murdered.’’ Fans complained online and even the lawyer for Bernardo’s victims weighed in when contacted by a Toronto reporter, saying Dunham “crossed that line.” Dunham is now apologizing, saying in a followup tweet: “Obviously didn’t Fame Daddy

Catholic scandal

ITV duped by sperm bank hoax

Priest accused of stealing church money

A celebrity sperm bank? Maybe not yet. A British television network says it was duped by an actor pretending to be the chief of celebrity paternity service Fame Daddy. ITV’s This Morning program carried an interview Wednesday with a man identified as Dan Richards. He said his company would match women with famous and affluent sperm donors. On Thursday the network said it had been misled. Several newspapers also ran stories about Fame Daddy, whose slick website claims a roster of donors, including an Olympic gold medallist and a Formula One driver.

Police in Croatia say they’ve arrested a Catholic priest who allegedly made off with more than a million euros of church money. Police said Thursday they launched a criminal probe against priest Sime Nimac after the Church accused him of illegally selling church land for the equivalent of $1.7 million and taking the sale money. They said Nimac was arrested on Wednesday in the capital of Zagreb. The case has drawn much public attention in Croatia. Local media have reported that Nimac also ran off with a married woman who had allegedly helped him draw the money from the bank. Jutarnji List newspaper said Nimac denied the allegations against him.

Some restaurants want diners to cut the chatter Taking on the digital crowd. Owners split over the use of cellphones in their restaurants

“There’s no place to get away from the chatter,” said Julie Liberty of Miami, who started the Facebook page Ban Cell Phones From Restaurants earlier this year. “Everything has a soundtrack, including when you go into the ladies room. That’s just not right.” Some restaurateurs go with the digital flow. Sarabeth Levine, of New York City-based Sarabeth’s, said she’s perfectly fine with people chatting, playing games or even taking pictures. It’s free advertising, after all. “I’m happy to have our customers,” Levine said. “They come, they tweet, they Facebook, they bring their children. It’s high energy to begin with. I mean, people are noisy even in the way they speak today.” Others take a middle ground, like the high-end Washington, D.C., restaurant Rogue 24, where hostesses politely tell guests that if they do take pictures, please do so without a distracting flash. “I mean you can’t fight it,” said owner R. J. Cooper. “Why fight a losing battle?”

The digital divide is wider than ever between diners who talk, tweet and snap pictures mid-meal and those who wish they’d just shut up, shut down and be present. Caught at the centre of the discord are restaurant owners and chefs, who must walk the careful line of good customer service for both those who dine under the influence of smartphones, and those who won’t. But as the devices have morphed into an unrelenting appendage for texting, photography and games, more restaurateurs are challenged to keep the peace. Owners who once relied mostly on “no cellphones, please” signs, increasingly are experimenting with everything from penalties for using phones, discounts for not and outright bans on photography.

Omnibus budget changes. Big bill tables widespread revisions and reductions The latest omnibus budget bill from the Harper government makes changes to everything from the Indian Act and the Canadian Labour Code to the Canada Shipping Act. The bill kills off independent tribunals that examined things such as hazardous materials in the workplace and set the rates for employment insurance premiums, while making workers pay taxes on their employers’ contributions to group health and accident insurance plans. It also sharply reduces project approvals required under the Navigable Waters Protection Act, sets time limits on worker complaints under the Canada Labour Code and makes additional changes to an Environmental Assessment Act that was essentially rewritten by the Conservative government last spring. It lays out a whole new act for the building of a new bridge from Windsor, Ont., to Detroit, while exempting the project from “a number of federal laws under which permits, approvals or authorizations would normally be required.” The bill — the second of two massive implementa-

tion acts based on the March federal budget — contains no surprises, said Finance Minister Jim Flaherty, who angrily accused the opposition of being too lazy to read last spring’s federal spending blueprint. “What’s in the bill today is in the budget,” Flaherty snapped in the House of Commons. “If you haven’t read the budget, I say to my honourable friends on the other side, I don’t know what you did all summer.... Do your work. Do your job.” Critics suggest the devil is always in the details — and at 457 pages, the omnibus legislation includes a lot of them. the canadian press

Calgary couple who survived Costa Concordia wreck ‘hope for justice’ Finding peace after trauma. Passenger who opted to swim for safety rather than abandon her husband awaits results of inquiry Jeremy nolais

Metro in Calgary

Survival was only the beginning. That’s the working title of a book Andrea Davis is penning about her ordeal aboard the ill-fated Costa Concordia cruise ship, and the subsequent struggle upon returning home to Calgary. Davis and her husband, Laurence, had only just ordered a bottle of wine at a dining hall aboard the massive vessel when it smashed into rocks off the Tuscan Island of Giglio on Jan. 13. With water pouring into the ship, Davis refused to separate from her husband and take one remaining seat aboard a lifeboat. Instead, the couple swam for shore together, spending more than 20 minutes in frigid water. Back at home, Davis was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder. In July, the couple returned to the island for the first time since the wreck to view the ship, still overturned at sea, and meet with some of the locals, who embraced them with open arms. “I knew that this was a medical prescription for me, something I needed to do

Andrea Davis plants a kiss on her grandson after arriving at Calgary International Airport in January, days after surviving the Costa Concordia shipwreck. Metro file In it together

“They had one spot (on the lifeboat) and they asked Andrea if she wanted to come in, and we looked at each other and decided we’re in this together. ‘There’s no way we’re separating.’” Costa Concordia shipwreck survivor Laurence Davis After about a 20-minute swim in frigid water, Davis and his wife, Andrea, made it to shore with minor scrapes.

... to walk across the rocks, to see the path that we had climbed through on that dark and scary night, to see

how far we were from land, to see the sunken ship and this horrific, rested memorial of our trauma,” she said.

The Davises have been watching closely as an inquiry into the Concordia wreck and the actions of Capt. Francesco Schettino, who could stand trial for multiple counts of manslaughter and abandoning ship, got underway this week. “We hope for justice ... everyone in this world deserves justice,” Davis said. Thirty-two people died in the Costa Concordia tragedy.

Britain looking for spy kids Apprentice 007s. British program open to bright 18-year-olds who will undergo technical training and work placements How’s this for a job title — secret agent’s apprentice. The British government is recruiting teenage apprentice spies and codebreakers without university degrees in a bid to deepen the talent pool of its intelligence services for the era of cyberterorrism and cyberwarfare. Foreign Secretary William Hague announced the program Thursday in a speech at Bletchley Park, Britain’s Second World War code-breaking headquarters. “Young people are the key to our country’s future success, just as they were during the war,” Hague said. “It will be the young innovators of this generation who will help keep our country safe in years to come against threats which are every bit as serious as some of those confronted in the Second World

War.” The Foreign Office said the apprenticeship program aims to find up to 100 new recruits for GCHQ — Britain’s electronic surveillance agency — and the MI5 and MI6 and intelligence services. The idea is to expand recruitment of spies beyond the traditional method of a discreet “tap on the shoulder” at university. The program will be open to bright 18-year-olds with backgrounds in science, technology, engineering and even computer gaming. They will undergo a two-year course of university classes, technical training and work placements before starting full-time jobs. High-school students will also be invited to take part in a “national cipher challenge” competition intended to inspire pupils to consider careers in mathematics and cybersecurity. The Foreign Office said the goal was to “harness the expertise of its young people, who have grown up with a world of social media, global connectivity and interactive gaming, to make sure we can tackle the threats and challenges of the 21st century.’’

This 2009 file photo shows Mike Hillyard, one of the volunteers who rebuilt a replica of the Turing Bombe machine that played a crucial part in cracking the Nazi Enigma Code, standing by the machine at Bletchley Park in Milton Keynes, England.

Anti-marijuana ad racist and inaccurate, says Williams

Montel Williams

Danny Johnston/The Associated Press

Talk show host Montel Williams accused an ad against legalizing medical marijuana of resorting to “racism” after the commercial depicted an African American drug dealer. Williams, an outspoken supporter of medical marijuana, appeared Thursday at the state capitol alongside

egregiously racist, false statement you’ve ever seen in your life,” Williams said. “They’ve (got) people sitting in a picture holding guns, talking about medical marijuana, and of course they happen to be of different colours to make sure you’re as irritated and angry as you can be.”

Jerry Cox, the president of the Arkansas Family Council and a member of the coalition, denied that the ad was aimed at stoking any kind of racial animus and defended the spot as accurate. Cox noted that the ad also features white actors portraying marijuana users.

Fear not mama, we’re just trying to help Baby elephant rescue. Kenyan national park video goes viral — with good reason How do you pull a baby elephant out of a deep, muddy hole? A rope and a Land Rover. Then the payoff: A frantic baby elephant sprint to mom. A heartwarming video of the rescue of a baby elephant in a Kenyan national park gained a mass of viewers on Thursday. The video shows the rescuers’ potentially dangerous faceoff with the mother elephant and their struggle to get her calf out of a 1.5-metre hole. Vicki Fishlock of the Amboseli Trust for Elephants faced down the mother with her Land Rover, and made a high-pitched aye-aye-aye call to drive the mother off. Thirty muddy minutes later, after two men struggle to

Britain’s Court of Appeal has affirmed a lower court ruling that Samsung’s Galaxy tablet computer is “not as cool” as Apple’s iPad and therefore doesn’t infringe Apple’s rights. The issue in the case was whether Samsung infringed on the design Apple registered in 2004. The lower court in July had declared Samsung’s Galaxy computers “do not have the same understated and extreme simplicity which is possessed by the Apple design. They are not as cool.” In their ruling Thursday, all three justices who heard the appeal ordered Apple to publicize the court rulings to “dispel commercial uncertainty,” and make sure consumers are not biased against Samsung. Judge Robin Jacob wrote in the unanimous opinion: “The acknowledgement must come from the horse’s mouth. Nothing short of that will be sure to do the job completely.” The Associated Press

Its last U.S. print edition will be its Dec. 31 issue. The paper version of Newsweek is the latest casualty of a changing world where readers get more of their information from websites, tablets and smartphones. It’s also an environment in which advertisers are looking for less expensive alternatives online.

CRTC rejects BCE’s acquisition of Astral Surprise decision. Proposal was one of biggest takeovers ever submitted to regulator The federal broadcast regulator gave an unequivocal thumbs down to BCE Inc.’s takeover of Astral Media on Thursday, declaring in no uncertain terms the $3.4-billion deal was not good for Canadians. The surprise decision by the CRTC was announced after stock markets closed and marked the first major ruling for newly installed commissioner Jean-Pierre Blais. Not only did Blais, who took over in late June, turn down one of the biggest takeovers ever submitted to the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission, he left little doubt about where he stood, or how he would respond should BCE return with a modified but essentially similar proposal. “This transaction would

have resulted in an unprecedented level of concentration in the Canadian marketplace and we had grave concerns that BCE would be able to use its market power in an unfair manner and engage in uncompetitive behaviour,” he said. “Simply put this was not a good deal for Canadians” that could have restricted choice and raised prices of services, he added.

Defining moment

“This is a defining moment for the CRTC. They have stared at Canada’s largest corporation and one of the largest deals in Canada and said ‘No.’” Telecom analyst Iain Grant, noting the CRTC hasn’t delivered a ruling of this magnitude since 1992, when it approved competition for long-distance calling

He pointed out that had the regulator allowed the deal, BCE would have controlled almost 45 per cent of the English TV viewership and almost 35 per cent of the French. As well, it would have become the largest radio station operator in Canada and controlled over half of TV pay and specialty services. “At the end of the day, BCE demonstrated clearly that the proposed transaction would be good for BCE, but we were not persuaded that it was in the best interest of Canadians,” he said.

space jump is pretty dope Worried that you’ve missed the week’s big news and you’re Paul Sullivan feeling inadequate around the metronews.ca water cooler? Fear not! You’ve come to the right place: The Metro List, where the news lives. Felix Baumgartner. I double-dog dare ya to climb 38 kilometres in a balloon, open the hatch and then jump out. No problem, says the Austrian daredevil, who broke the sound barrier while he was at it. Then he opened his parachute and hit the ground walking. Baumgartner says his daredevil days are done, but wasn’t it another Austrian guy who said, “I’ll be back”? On the other hand. Lance Armstrong won’t work in this town — or any other — again. His main sponsor, Nike, abandoned him after the U.S. AntiDoping Agency released testimony from 11 of his former teammates, who claimed they helped him ride to seven tainted Tour de France victories. But Nike still endorses Michael Vick and Kobe Bryant, a dog killer and a man who was once accused of rape, respectively. Oh well, at least they didn’t take banned substances to give themselves an unfair advantage ... right? The saddest story. Teenager Amanda Todd went looking for love in all the wrong places, i.e. the Internet, and was hounded by the fallout until she killed herself. Before she did, she recorded a haunting video and released it on … the Internet, possibly hoping for some kind of cyber-vindication. You’d like to think her tormentors learned their lesson, but some were still online bullying her memory this week. There’s enough bitter irony in this one story to last a lifetime. Hot enough for you? By you, I mean climatechange denier, you. September was the hottest ever. In the world. If that’s not enough, it was the 331st straight month with above-average temperatures. Anyone who continues to think this global-warming stuff is a hoax reminds me of that lobster sitting in a nice warm bath, and he’s starting to turn pink. Rock ’em sock ’em NHL labour negotiations. The NHL offers to share revenue 50-50 with the players, but the boys are still young enough to be able to read the fine print on the offer, so this thing ain’t settled yet. But at least they’re getting down to it. Timing is interesting. For most of the players, this is their first week without a paycheque. Whoa, dude. Then there’s this elk. This is not a joke. We repeat, this is not a joke. An elk has spent the last three years mooning (moo-ing?) over a herd of cows in the B.C. Interior. This year, well, he leapt the fence. Conservation officers caught him, tranquilized him and — the final indignity — sawed off his six-point antlers (safety measure), then let him go, far from the madding cows.

Photographer’s viewpoint

Canadian earns global recognition

“The penguins definitely fed off my energy. But I was lucky as I was almost killed by a deadly leopard seal the previous day!”

A photo titled BubbleJetting Emperors by Canadian photographer Paul Nicklen has won the globally acclaimed Veolia Environnement Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition. This image of the chaotic underwater world of emperor penguins at the edge of the Ross Sea, in Antarctica, beat over 48,000 entries from 98 countries to claim the prize. Metro

Bird vs. airplane captures prize

For the image, Nicklen stayed motionless, waiting for the penguins. Suddenly the birds blasted up from the depths and, with frozen fingers, Paul captured this incredible image. “It was a fantastic sight,” Nicklen said. “Hundreds launched themselves out of the water and onto the ice above me. It was a moment that I felt incredibly fortunate to witness and one I’ll never forget.”

Teenage amateur photographer Owen Hearn (U.K.) won the overall award for under-17s with his image of a red kite and an airplane captured on his grandparents’ farm. “With the bird and plane, you can see the connection between nature and humans,” Hearn told Metro. “The life of these birds is decided by how far we develop and encroach into their environment.” Metro

Reel Guys

RICHARD CROUSE AND MARK BRESLIN

TORSTAR ARCHIVE

Hair-raising films for the Halloween season

Frightful fare. The Reel Guys talk about the films that give them the creeps Richard: Mark, I’m a fan of old school horror. Not Freddy and Jason, or even b-movies like The Astounding She-Monster, but the kind of thing that gave my grandmother nightmares, Dracula, Frankenstein and the Mummy. I love the Universal creature features, so the new one-stop-shopping Classic Monsters Collection Blu Ray has enough to keep me busy until Halloween. Eight monsters! Nine movies! Twelve hours of extras! What keeps you up at night? Mark: My mortgage, Richard. As far as scary movies go, I have to confess I’m one tough cookie — it’s pretty

hard to scare me. If there’s just a tiny note of humour, I can’t take the flick seriously. And I don’t believe in monsters, vampires, or ghosts. But what does scare me is the horror of people behaving very, very badly — anything to do with psychopaths gives me the creepy-crawlies. I’m thinking of Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer, In the Light of the Moon (the Ed Gein biopic), Monster (Aileen Wuornos) or the long list of fictional serial killer movies — Se7en, American Psycho, Silence of the Lambs. Quite an impressive sub-genre when you think about it. RC: In Cold Blood always freaks me out. It’s not a horror film in the traditional sense, but because it’s a true story of a senseless murder it sends shivers down my spine… and elsewhere. I usually stick to monster

movies, because I’m petty sure a werewolf isn’t going to attack me on the walk home. Two werewolf faves are Cure of the Werewolf with Oliver Reed and Ginger Snaps, which takes a bite out of the usual lycanthrope myth, spinning it as a teenage girl coming-of-age story. Are there any fictional creatures that get to you? MB: Well I wouldn’t want to meet Leatherface in a dark alley; in fact, I wouldn’t want to meet him at the Four Seasons for smart drinks either. But one kind of horror film that does creep me out is the “home invasion” movie. I’m thinking of Funny Games (both European and U.S. versions), The Strangers, even the paint-by-numbers Nic Cage vehicle Trespass gets under my skin. Because this stuff actually happens, y’know?

Boo

Anyone looking to have the hairs on the back of their necks raised this month won’t have trouble finding something to do the trick. Silent Hill: Revelation, Sinister and Paranormal Activity 4 (is it four times scarier than the first one?) are all in theatres, but the Reel Guys have some other tinglers you may not have considered.

RC: Yeah, perhaps I’m more just escapist in my taste of creepy movies. I’m not drawn to true horrific crime unless the criminal is the Creature from the Black Lagoon. MB: Now that’s one home invasion I’d like to see. But I wouldn’t want to clean up afterwards.

Alex Cross Director. Rob Cohen Stars. Tyler Perry, Matthew Fox, Rachel Nichols

••••• Tyler Perry is the new Alex Cross, stepping into the role Morgan Freeman made famous in Kiss the Girls. In this new thriller the detective underestimates a serial killer (a skeletal Matthew Fox) and that rare mistake in judgment ends up changing his life. The problems here are many, starting with a TV movie-ready script. The only unused cliché is, “Just the facts, ma’am,” but, I’m sure screenwriters are already crafting that line into Alex Cross 2: My Name’s Not Madea. richard crouse

Paranormal Activity 4 Director. Henry Joost, Ariel Schulman Stars. Stephen Dunham, Katie Featherston, Kathryn Newton, Alexondra Lee

••• • • Paranormal Activity fans (or what’s left of you) are in for the same ride as usual, but this one should have never started. The fourth installment in the franchise offers viewers the same predictable thrills and a weak storyline that is all too familiar. This series started off strong, as the first film explored new territory in the horror genre and went on to be considered one of the scariest movies of all time. Unfortunately there is nothing left to squeeze out of this story. Olivia morrow

The Paperboy Director. Lee Daniels Stars. Zac Efron, Nicole Kidman

••••• The Paperboy may be the long-awaited follow-up to the award-winning hit Precious but director Lee Daniels’ shouldn’t hold his breath for nominations this Oscar season. Set in 1969, this Southern melodrama explores two brothers investigating the questionably incarcerated hillbilly husband of an oversexed seductress (Kidman). While Daniels’ cloaks the film in intolerance and tension, the rambling plot and overcalculated shocks simply antagonize its audience — especially an infamous scene involving Kidman peeing on Zac Efron’s jellyfish sting. steve gow

Diana Vreeland: The Eye has to Travel Director. Lisa Immordino Vreeland Stars. Diana Vreeland, Anjelica Huston

•••• • The late-legendary fashionista that helped popularize both blue jeans and bikinis is the subject of the charming documentary Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel. While filled with energetic anecdotal interviews and archive footage, the slightly scant exploration of her sometimes tyrannical behaviour as editor of Vogue/Harper’s Bazaar is curious but given the director is her granddaughterin-law, the tribute remains satisfying. steve gow

Tai Chi Zero Director. Stephen Fung Stars. Yuan Xiaochao, Angelababy

••••• Hong Kong spits out wushu films like Hollywood spits out sequels. So it’s nice to find one that leans on more than just slo-mo fight scenes. The film follows kung-fu prodigy Lu Chan who travels to Chen village to learn a powerful form of the martial art, only to discover that villagers won’t teach their secrets to outsiders. Director Stephen Fung mixes elements of steam punk, anime and video games into this tale of a small village fighting modern industrialization striking a tone similar to Scott Pilgrim. ian gormely

Celebrating his 50th birthday, James Bond has been learning some new tricks — but 3D isn’t one of them. Producers of the spy franchise say they have no interest in making a Bond film in 3D. The upcoming Skyfall is the first Bond film to be released since Avatar made 3D a common and often lucrative practice for blockbusters. “3D is fantastic for the right material, but we’re not sure Bond is the right way to go,” said Skyfall producer Barbara Broccoli in a recent interview. “With our movies, there’s a lot of challenges to 3D, particularly when you’ve got a lot of action and a lot of quick cutting.” Broccoli and her half-brother Michael G. Wilson have shepherded the last seven Bond films, preserving the franchise as a family business. Skyfall, premieres next week in the U.K. and opens Nov. 9 in the U.S. the associated press

Susan Sarandon joins the Cloud Atlas circus Part of something big. Actress was thrilled to join up with the Wachowskis and help them create their epic vision Ned Ehrbar

Metro World News in Hollywood

From playing a former 1960s radical on the run in the Company You Keep to gueststarring as a former middle school teacher out of jail and still romancing a former student in 30 Rock, Susan Sarandon likes to keep things interesting. So naturally she was eager to join the company of Cloud Atlas, playing four different characters for directors Lana and Andy Wachowski and Tom Tykwer. The experience was, as Sarandon puts it, “like joining the circus.”

What was the draw for you to take on all of these roles? I just love the Wachowskis, and I had met Tom before when I was doing Speed Racer. Actually, they gave me the book as a parting gift at that time and I loved the book, and I wasn’t thinking about it being made into a movie, but when they got it all together years later and said, “We miss you, come spend some time with us and play in Berlin,” even without knowing what they wanted me to do I knew that it was something that I could bear to talk about for days on end at junkets and that it would be a really interesting experience. How much does being able to bear talking about something for days on end normally factor into your decision? It’s major, because seriously you give so much energy. If it’s not something that excites you for some reason,

you feel like a hooker. I mean, you can’t do it for the money. It has to be something that either has a concept or a character that you’ve not done before. It can be just fun. You never know how something’s going to turn out, so you can’t ever make a decision based on what you think will be successful and what won’t. What about this one? This one was like joining a repertory company, and the spirit of the people that would take that kind of a chance, that would do little parts and big parts and bounce all over the place and put their egos aside was a very unusual, unusual camp to belong to. It was like joining the circus. It was very exhilarating for everybody, I think, even the people who worked much harder than I worked, because you knew you were a part of something that was very special, and everybody was game.

When you work with Lana and Andy, they’re always very, very well-prepared, but this one, because it was so complicated, it really felt like you were taking off and going into outer space or something, in terms of what it was attempting. There was a certain excitement at being asked to be part of it that I just wanted. Even just historically, I thought it was a really groundbreaking attempt. Are you going to be popping up on the last season of 30 Rock? Not so far as I know, no. As far as I know, there’s no plans for that. Alec [Baldwin] had said to me, “I’d like to end up with you at the end of the show.” I don’t know how that would happen, but I said, “Yeah, sure, it sounds good.” It’s fun to do these little things where you don’t have to be on something for seven years, but you get to just come in and play a little.

Reflux

By Dr. Chakib Hammoud, M.H.,PhD.

The USDA now recommends to eat 50% alkaline food (vegetables, legumes, salads, fruit). Health professionals suggest 80% alkaline food. Unfortunately, North American people eat 90% acidic food (meat, pasta, rice, bread, pastries, sweets, junk food). If you cannot change your diet to USDA’s 50% or closer to 80% alkaline food, consider to supplement with a natural health product that #39 helps to increase your pH alkaline level close to a healthy #7. Ask for Bell Acidic Stomach/Alkaline Balance #39. It’s inexpensive, has no side effects and may eliminate the need for anti-acid pills many people take. As a bonus, an alkaline balanced body prevents many illnesses. See guarantee printed on box.  Reflux gave me a sore throat and I could not sing in the church choir anymore. After taking Bell #39 I have no more reflux and rejoice in singing again. Helene Giroux, 65, Quebec, QC  Have family history of heartburn. For last 10 years I suffered a lot with acid reflux. I told all family members about #39 being all natural, giving quick relief and having no side effects. Michael Fasheh, 49, Port Ranch, CA Very happy with acid reflux relief. Last 4 years had increasing reflux despite taking anti-acid products. I am also trying to eat more alkaline food. Grzegorz Smirnow, 43, Mt. Prospect, IL

Bladder & Yeast Infection

Bladder & Yeast Infection #31 works within a day or two! My experience in the last 4 years is that whenever I feel symptoms of an infections I take two capsules for a day or two and the infection is gone. I love this product. Pat Pearce, 53, Brantford, ON  30 years of bladder infections gone! For 30 years my doctor prescribed antibiotics. As soon as the #31 medication finished the next bladder infection came back. After 2 days taking Bell # 31 I noticed a complete relief of my infection I had all these 30 years. God bless you all for helping all of us women. Emell Whitaker, 69, Bronx, NY  Bladder infections kept on coming back. Since starting Bell Bladder & Yeast Infection #31 my infection was gone and I now take it from time to time for prevention and I have no more bladder or yeast infections. I told family and friends how good Bell products are. Thank you! Maria Racz, 60, Vancouver, BC Went to the bathroom 10 times in an hour and more frequently at night!. In the last 2 years I went a number of times to the doctor and got different antibiotics and none of them worked. My urination would burn enormously. I bought your Bell Bladder & Yeast infection #31. I can now work all day or sleep all night without getting up to go to the bathroom. I am not afraid anymore to drink water when I am thirsty. Praise the Lord! Thank you! Harriett Priester, 60, North Charleston, SC

The Wallflowers make it up as they go New music. Jakob Dylan talks about how his band made Glad All Over, their first album in seven years, different from the others As producers are known to do, Jay Joyce called Jakob Dylan to discuss plans be-

fore they were scheduled to start recording The Wallflowers’ first album in seven years. Joyce was surprised when Dylan said he really didn’t have anything. “We had a couple of songs, nothing but a bunch of stuff on a laptop that I said, ‘This might sound like this. This might sound like this,’” Dylan recalled. “But they were lyrics,”

Joyce said in mock protest. “I was like, ‘This is what I got,’” Dylan, 42, said with a laugh. The singer and producer got together recently in Nashville to talk about Glad All Over, the first Wallflowers’ album since 2005’s Rebel, Sweetheart. This time around the Grammy winners tried something different as Dylan — no longer comfortable with his lead

songwriting role — took a step back and tried to blend into the band. In the past, he’d shown up at sessions with demos and strong feelings. This time, there were no demos or completed lyrics; just ideas the group — which includes longtime members Rami Jaffee on keyboard, Greg Richling on bass and guitarist Stuart Mathis with new drummer Jack Irons —

playing. I was worried about being fired from the band.” Joyce also kept the band on track, wrapping recording in a month. His presence helped Dylan achieve his goal of having five guys in a room — and only five guys — working out the songs. “I wanted to keep it simple,” Dylan said. “I knew when we got here we weren’t going to be about perfect chord patterns and structures. It wasn’t going to be that type of songwriting. It was going to be knocking the things out on the run. After this many years of not doing this, if we were going to do it we just didn’t want it to be heavy and didn’t need any ballads or mid-tempo things. We just wanted to have fun.” That ethos shows up several places on the album, but perhaps nowhere better than Reboot the Mission. Featuring a guitar-andvocal cameo from The Clash’s Mick Jones, Reboot the Mission is funky, wideopen and a little loopy with self-referential lyrics that refer to the band’s days in the studio.

took and ran with. “If you (pre-write), those songs come with an implied feeling, groove, tempo,” Dylan said. “They can limit the bass player. They can limit the drums. You’ve already got your vocal locked in and you’re not going to budge. So it can be stifling. You realize you’re bolted in with what the song already was. This lets the band lead, lets the band get out and front, and I can find a way to fit in the opposite way.” “It could have gone horribly wrong, man,” Joyce said. “It was sort of fun. That’s what attracted me to it: ‘Oh, (expletive), this is scary!’” What emerged is a writhing, rhythm-heavy album that has Joyce’s grimy fingerprints all over it. The rising Nashville producer known for crafting hits with artists as varied as Eric Church, Cage the Elephant and Little Big Town first met the band when T Bone Burnett flew him to Los Angeles to play guitar on their 1996 debut, Bringing Down the Horse. When Joyce’s name came up, Dylan jumped. He felt like Joyce would know where they were coming from and could play guitar on the album. “Plus,” he joked, “I don’t like to meet anyone new.” “I was just a band member,” Joyce said. “My job in this situation was first of all be part of the band. So I was worried about my guitar

solved murder — they know who the killer is but the police never found out — a lost love [who] died suddenly, they’re in denial [about their death]. A spirit, I believe, is still trapped here is because they’re not ready to move on. They want to keep living. Or they’re dead and they’re just stuck here, in purgatory, because they know that if they go to hell, it’s gonna be worse.”

The basic tools

“The evolution of technology, the engineers that we work with — electrical engineers that have worked at NASA — they are designing this equipment for us,” Bagans says.

of these lying around? You can use it to talk to ghosts. Once you identify some inexplicable energy, record yourself talking to the potential spirit and play it back on a speaker. “These microphones will pick up sounds that we can’t hear,” Bagans says. “They’ll pick up subfrequencies. And when spirits speak they can speak within these subfrequencies, in the white noise that’s generated by the recorders.”

And there’s also a reason why they choose your particular home to haunt. “It’s still a fight of who owns the place. There’s a living person there but there’s a ghost that wants the living person out.” Are you haunted?

If you’re one of the “nine out of 10” who Bagans predicts has experienced some supernatural activity in your home, don’t panic, he advises. “Just let it be, because I think that if you try and communicate with them, like what I do, then once they realize — like in the movie Ghost — that you can hear them, they will just bug you even more. If that’s what you want, get a digital recorder and talk with them. If you directly start communicating with them, they’re gonna know that they’ve gotten your attention. That’s what they’re trying to do — get your attention.”

When Zak Bagans saw his first ghost — a woman at the foot of his bed in Detroit — he knew he was part of a rare breed of people. But he was disappointed to see how lightly people were taking his experience. “I was really getting aggravated telling this story to people,” the host of Ghost Adventures on Travel+Escape says. “I’d tell the story and then we’d go eat a sandwich and that’s it. I experienced something that is legit. And that put me on this quest and it changed everything about me after that.” The paranormal expert now seeks out spirits for a living, and he doesn’t listen to the naysayers around him. “The evidence that we are capturing now is not just flickering lights and door knocks,” he says. “I want to welcome people that don’t believe and talk with them and show them the steps and have them accompany me on investigations.” Bagans says the ghosts that still linger on earth do so for a reason. “[They] have something to say,” he says. “There’s something unsolved in their life, whether it’s an un-

Spicy side of your cocktail LIQUID ASSETS

Peter Rockwell @therealwineguy liquidassets@eastlink.ca

metronews.ca WEEKEND, October 19-21, 2012

The spice route This time of the year always sees us returning to the foods that we know and love — pies, soups and stews. Bal Arneson of the Food Network’s Spice Goddess, tells us how to remake our favourites.

LIFE

DAN CLAPSON When you grow up in Nova Scotia, like I did, it’s a given that your first taste of spirits will come from the fountain of rum. Not just any rum, I’m talking black rum. Jet black rum. It’s the kind of tipple that grows hair on your chest and offers you memories to last a lifetime (along with some you wish to forget). Sadly, most everywhere else in Canada rum isn’t held in such high esteem — proving a favourite of Johnny Depp wannabes and those who find a popular cola brand the ultimate cocktail mix. While I’m cool with that, there is a certain “je ne sais quoi” to rum that appeals to the pirate in all of us. That said, a glass of rum’s 21st century persona is less yo-ho-ho and way more spice — which is opening liquor cabinet doors across the country. The Kraken Black Spiced ($27.99 - $32.99) is the epitome of dark rum’s new personality. Inky black, rich and spicy, it drinks as well over ice as it does blended into any rum-based concoction. Plus, packaging fans will love the bottles two-handled grip and the menacing giant squid on the label. PRICES REFLECT THE RANGE ACROSS THE COUNTRY. SOME PRODUCTS MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE IN ALL PROVINCES.

Bal Arneson, cookbook author and Food Network Canada personality, is definitely one lady who knows her spices. You can watch her reinventing delicious dishes on her popular show, Spice Goddess, as well as a resident judge on Shaw’s new cooking series, Cooking with Fire. Here’s how Arneson uses Indian spices at home to transform some traditional autumn staples…

Cranberry Sauce “Fennel seeds, a full, heaping tablespoon. Every time you’re taking a bite, you’ll get a burst of licorice flavour in your mouth. It’s just perfect!”

DAN CLAPSON

Hot Chocolate

Apple Pie

Beef Roast

“A pinch of clove will give it a nice, fresh flavour. Clove is so strong, so just a tiny, tiny pinch! And, a pinch of cardamon on top of the whipped cream.”

“When I mix my apples (for the pie), I always add green cardamon seeds. The seeds have a nice floral flavour. Once you try it with the cardamon, you can never go back to the regular apple pie!”

“Garam Masala! It’s a powder and my go-to spice! I make my own garam masala…cumin, cardamon, clove, coriander, curry leaf, bay leave, mustard seeds. Add it in along with your regular dry spice rub.”

Butternut Squash Soup “Definitely crushed coriander and cumin seeds. Coriander will give it a nice nutty flavour and the cumin will add a warming feeling to (the soup).

Curried Pumpkin. Transition the pie staple to something more savoury “One of my jobs as a child was to remove the seeds from the pumpkin before my mom could cook with it,” remembers Bal Arneson.

The next generation of grocery store items

Koko Patisserie’s artisanal pastries were named among the top 10 most innovative products at the Grocery Innovations Canada conference and trade show. the canadian press/ HO - Darren foster

New and exciting bites. Pizza cones, new ethnic foods, artisanal fare heading to stores Ice cream may soothe cravings for a frosty, sweet treat, but those craving something warm and savoury might soon be munching on cheese and pepperoni in a cone. Vince Pettinicchio, CEO and managing director of Quebecbased Aliments MSU Foods Canada Inc., said the pizza cone was a European fad that started four years ago. His company is the Canadian importer of the product which he sees as “revolutionary in its category.” “You can hold it in your hand, you can walk around with it,” he said during the recent Grocery Innovations Canada conference and trade show in Toronto. The two-day event offered a glimpse into the future of emerging food products Canadian consumers could soon see at the supermarket. Grocery Innovations Canada, John Scott, president and CEO of the Canadian Federation of Independent Grocers, said that the growing presence of ethnic foods on store shelves is one that “continues to explode.” Vincent Uy of British-Columbia-based 7000 Island Foods said his company is targeting mainstream Canadian consumers with its Pulo Philippine Cuisine product line.

While initially focused on the B.C. and Ontario markets, the company plans for a national distribution of the Canadian-made marinades and cooking sauces with Philippineinspired flavours like coconut adobo and pineapple tamarind, he added. Sandeep Khanna, director of marketing for Weston Bakeries Limited, said the company was inspired to bring Canadian consumers flatbreads with a focus on South Asian, Mediterranean and Persian cooking as it launches its Flat Oven Bakery line. “We believe there is a tremendous opportunity for consumers to actually use these products in their everyday cooking — not just when they feel like cooking Indian food or Greek food...,” Khanna said. Such alternatives could include using barbari flatbread to make bruschetta or margherita pizza, or chapati roti as a wrap for kids’ lunch, he noted. Growing consumer interest in where products are made and an interest in healthier options were also reflected among the homegrown offerings. Long before going trans-fat free was the craze, Kirby and Marcie Punshon of Reginabased Koko Patisserie used all-natural ingredients in their baked goods. The range of artisanal pastries, treats and cakes are sourced from Saskatchewan organic flour milled by a farmer just outside of the city. “Those were just our principles when we started, and now it seems to be the emphasis

which is great,” said Kirby, who started the business with Marcie out of their home kitchen. “But it’s still on a pure ingredient deck. It still has to be pure butter, it still has to be pure peaches — it can’t be flavourings. It has to be the real stuff.” Koko Patisserie took home honours among the top 10 most innovative products at the conference and trade show, and is expanding beyond its Saskatchewan base with entry into B.C. and Ontario.

Top Four Insurance Discounts Revealed Discounts you might not be aware of and how to get them. Discounts are the quickest and easiest way to reduce your insurance premiums, but you may be unsure sure which discounts are available and how to qualify for them. These top discounts can save you a lot of money and qualifying for them is easier than you’d think. Multi-Policy Discount – This discount goes beyond having two cars on one policy.

You may qualify for a discount on your car insurance and on your home insurance when you have both policies with the same insurance company. It is the easiest way to reduce your overall insurance bill; simply purchase multiple policies with the same company. Longevity Discount – Most insurance companies offer discounts to customers who have kept a policy with them for a long period of time. Keep in mind that it doesn’t hurt to shop around for quotes and compare – the savings that you could receive with another insurance company could outweigh

the longevity discount. Safety Features Discounts – Each insurance company has its own list of safety features that would qualify for a discount. Common features include installing winter tires or an approved anti-theft device. There are also standard safety features that new cars are equipped with – anti-lock brakes, front and side airbags as well as a passenger seat air bag that can turn off; making it safer for young passengers. Good Driver Discount – It pays to keep a safe driving record. Some car insurance companies will offer a discount for keeping

your driving record clean for a set number of years. In some cases, this discount may increase over time as you continue to maintain that record. The discount can be substantial in some cases. Be sure to ask for these discounts when obtaining insurance. And remember, the very best way to keep your insurance premiums low is to shop around for better rates. Insurance quoting sites like InsuranceHotline.com can help by comparing your insurance rate against over 30 car insurance companies to find you a lower rate available for your driving profile.

Think you have a great insurance rate? Be sure. The difference between thinking and knowing is a closer look, and that’s what you get on InsuranceHotline.com.

‘In a nutshell, it doesn’t look good’ NHL. Union offers fall flat, taking air out of optimism for full season The NHL labour situation appears grim after an exchange of proposals between the league and the union accomplished little. The NHL Players’ Association rejected an offer from the league that would see revenue split 50-50 between the league and the players. The union countered with three different proposals, which league commissioner Gary Bettman called “thoroughly disappointing” on Thursday. “None of the three variations of player share that they gave us even began to approach 50-50, either at all or for some long period of time,” Bettman said. “It’s clear we’re not speaking the same language.” Union executive director Donald Fehr disagreed, saying two of the proposals would see the players take a fixed amount of revenue, which would turn into an approximate 50-50 split over the term of the deal provided league revenues continued to grow. The third approach would be a 50-50 split, as long as the league honoured all existing contracts at full value. The NHLPA showed up to the meeting with a show of force, including star players Sidney Crosby, Jarome Iginla, Jonathan Toews and Eric Staal. Like the leaders of the two sides, the players did not seem optimistic after the afternoon meeting. “We came in here today with those proposals thinking that we could really make some progress, and to hear those words (from Bettman) kind of shuts it down pretty quickly,”

Sidney Crosby speaks at a press conference following negotiations in Toronto on Thursday. CHRIS YOUNG/THE CANADIAN PRESS Quoted

“I don’t know what the next step is. I’m obviously very disappointed.” NHL commissioner Gary Bettman

Crosby said. “In a nutshell, it doesn’t look good.” Bettman said the league’s proposal is fair and would allow for an 82-game season to start Nov. 2. But Fehr said the players could sacrifice nearly $1.8 billion in revenue under the league’s proposal. Fehr said concessions made by the players in the last round of bargaining have cost them $3.3 billion over the term of the last agreement. The players currently get 57 per cent of revenues. “This is not a good day,” Fehr said. “It should have been, but it’s not.” Bettman said no new talks are immediately scheduled. He said he is still hopeful the league can have a full season, but time is running out.

Fallout

Crosby more seriously considering Europe There was simply no way for Sidney Crosby to hide his disappointment. Just one week after telling The Canadian Press he was confident a deal could be

struck that would save the NHL season, the Pittsburgh Penguins captain acknowledged Thursday that he was going to start looking closer at what options might be available to play in Europe. “A little harder, yeah,” said Crosby. “I think that’s something that everyone’s got to figure out. You try to figure out where things stand and I don’t think they’re in a great spot right now.”

Prince Fielder waved his arms frantically, gleefully calling off his teammates before catching the final out. From the moment Fielder signed his massive contract in January, an entire city had been waiting for a moment like this. Max Scherzer capped a stupendous stretch for Detroit’s starting rotation, and the Tigers advanced to the World Series, beating the New York Yankees 8-1 Thursday for a four-game sweep of the AL championship series.

Scherzer took a no-hit bid into the sixth against a Yankees team that hit .188 in the postseason and .157 in the LCS. New York went quietly in the ninth inning, the last three batters shut down in order. Detroit won its 11th American League pennant and first since 2006. The Tigers have five days off before the World Series starts Wednesday at defending champion St. Louis or 2010 winner San Francisco.

Andrea Bargnani is bruised but not beaten. The big man, who left Wednesday’s pre-season win over Washington in the third quarter with a bruised left calf, did not practise Thursday but is travelling with the team for its game against the New York Knicks in Montreal on Friday. Bargnani missed 35 of 66 games last season with a series of injuries to the same calf. Toronto team officials were quick to point out that this is just a bruise from being kicked and not the kind of strain that ruined his 2011-12 season.

Hart takes fall for blowout loss in Honduras Hart’s record

Soccer. Resignation of Canadian men’s team coach effective immediately. No interim head coach for the time being In a corridor under the stands at the decrepit Estadio Olimpico Metropolitano, a numb Stephen Hart refused to make excuses after watching Canada implode in a shocking 8-1 loss to Honduras. His team was well-prepared. The heat was not a factor. His players were all professionals. Reminded that he was not on the field during the debacle, Hart paused and said simply: “But it’s my responsibility.” Hart, 52, lived up to that credo two days later by handing in his resignation as national

Hart’s record as coach was 20-15-10 in various stints from 2006 to 2012, ranking him second in wins and first in win percentage among Canadian coaches.

happen.” The resignation will not be welcomed by the majority of Hart’s players, who regarded their laidback coach with respect and affection. “The disaster in Honduras had nothing to do with coaching or tactics,” said veteran fullback Ante Jazic, who missed Tuesday’s game through illness. “Ultimately with that result, that scoreline, heads were going to roll.

What’s the rush in T.O.? CFL Extra Points

Dan Toth toronto@metronews.ca

2 4 6 Roughriders can’t deny what could have been; Burris looking with longing at Stampeders sideline; No delicate way to discuss fragile Pierce’s future Photos by The Canadian Press/Torstar News Service/Getty Images

First thing’s first for ailing Alouettes

Burris to get first-hand look at former club

1 3 5 A real Argos head scratcher

Argos head coach Scott Milanovich needs to be wary of pushing QB Ricky Ray back into action after missing three games with a knee injury. The Argos are unlikely to catch the firstplace Alouettes with just three games remaining, so why risk losing your most important player prior to the playoffs?

You always want to clinch a playoff spot as early as possible, providing an opportunity for key players to rest before the playoffs. The Alouettes know this only too well. Montreal requires just one win to secure first place in the East, but are without running back Victor Anderson, receiver S.J. Green, and kick returner Trent Guy.

Reaching boiling point in B.C.?

Lions GM Wally Buono says he “hates Twitter and Facebook” and for very good reason. Buono would like to be able to control his players on and off the field, but is helpless when the likes of Lions defensive lineman Khalif Mitchell uses social media to publicize his ignorance as he did this week by making a racial slur.

It’s strange to think that had QB Henry Burris accepted a demotion this season with the Stamps, he could have been at the controls of Calgary’s offence Friday night in place of injured Drew Tate. Instead, Burris is leading the visiting Hamilton Tiger-Cats against Kevin Glenn, who has been solid as Tate’s replacement.

Rough road ahead in Regina

Head coach Corey Chamblin tried putting a positive spin on last week’s loss in Edmonton, where they squandered a shot at hosting a playoff game in November. The Green Machine has lost the season series to both Calgary and Edmonton and now faces a tough stretch with games against Montreal (Saturday), Toronto and B.C. to end the season.

Only a matter of time for Pierce

This is getting hard to watch. Now that fragile QB Buck Pierce has been cleared by team doctors to play, it’s just a matter of time before he becomes seriously injured. Pierce, who missed the last two games with a concussion, has appeared in just five games this year.

Returning Ray relying on experience vs. Bombers

DEFEnCE

Ricky Ray insists he’s more concerned about how fast he can regain his timing with his receivers than the formidable Winnipeg pass rush he will face in Friday night’s game at the Rogers Centre. Wearing a brace on his left knee, Ray knows he won’t be dazzling anybody with his footwork. So he’ll need to throw the ball quicker and the linemen protecting him must do their part to prevent the CFL’s leading quarterbacksacking team from knocking him to the turf. “I’m probably not going to run for 100 yards a game like I did before my injury,” said Ray with a smile on Thursday after

Quoted

“There is always pressure. I want to perform well every time regardless of the situation.” Argos quarterback Ricky Ray

revealing he would definitely be starting against the Blue Bombers. “My game is being more of an in-the-pocket kind of a guy so it shouldn’t affect me too much. They’re good at getting to the quarterback. But as a quarterback, I can help out the O-line by making good reads and not holding on the

ball too long. The O-line can hold onto their blocks longer as well. But we all have to work together. “For me, I’m just worried about playing well. It feels better than training camp because I have some experience with this offence. For me, it’s how am I going to be with the people coming at me?” Ray, 32, hasn’t played since early in the first quarter of a game in Montreal on Sept. 23 when he strained his ACL in his left knee after centre Jeff Keeping fell on him. The Argos lost 31-10 to the Alouettes. Toronto then lost two of its next three games with backup Jarious Jackson running the

One more win

Last Sunday’s loss to Montreal for all intents and purposes ended the Argos’ hopes of a first-place finish in the East. • Toronto must win one

of its last three games to secure a playoff spot and a victory over Winnipeg will end the Bombers’ postseason hopes.

50 Horoscopes

Aries

March 21 - April 20 There may be an element of truth in what others are saying about you today, so don’t just ignore it. You’re not too old to learn and the best kind of learning is the kind that increases your self-awareness.

Taurus

April 21 - May 21 A rather tense day is possible and, just this once, you may have no option but to confront someone you don’t get along with. Where some issues are concerned, there can be no middle ground. Fight to win.

Gemini

May 22 - June 21 Daydreaming can be a lot of fun but don’t let it keep you from doing what you should be doing. Routine tasks may be boring but they must be done and they must be done well, so get on with it.

Cancer

June 22 - July 23 Do not be offended if a loved one wants to spend some time alone. They have some serious inner issues to deal with and the only way they can do that is to isolate themselves from outside influences.

Leo

July 24 - Aug. 23 There is no point getting angry about what happens today. All you can do is let fate take its course and hope it leads you somewhere worth going. Don’t take your frustrations out on those who care for you.

Virgo

Aug. 24 - Sept. 23 Give yourself permission to try new things. Don’t worry that others might say you are being irresponsible. If you can dream it, you can do it — it’s as simple as that. Maybe that’s what they are afraid of.

Libra

Sept. 24 - Oct. 23 You will get the chance to get rid of something that is holding you back from fulfilling your potential. Take it or you may look back in a few weeks and wish you had been a bit more adventurous.

Scorpio

Oct. 24 - Nov. 22 Someone has let you down and your first reaction will be to do something nasty to them in return. If you get into the revenge business, you could start a feud that never ends.

Sagittarius

Nov. 23 - Dec. 21 The depth of your feelings may be making you uncomfortable but there is no point pretending they do not exist. No matter how hard you try to deny them, they will bounce back even stronger.

Capricorn

Dec. 22 - Jan. 20 You won’t be pleased if someone treats your concerns in a flippant manner but try not to overreact. When all is said and done, there are more important things on which you should be spending your precious time and energy.

Aquarius

Jan. 21 - Feb. 19 You are a force to be reckoned with and anyone who does not believe that now will be made to believe it when the Sun changes signs on the 23rd. You have big plans, plans that will soon turn into realities.
