Defamation suit against mayor gets tossed by judge Court. Restaurateur failed to prove Ford’s comments regarding ‘corruption and skullduggery’ were referring to him: Ruling

A judge has rejected a businessman’s $6-million defamation suit against Mayor Rob Ford. The businessman, Boardwalk Pub restaurateur George Foulidis, alleged that Ford defamed him in comments to the Toronto Sun’s editorial board during the 2010 election cam-

paign. Ontario Superior Court Justice John Macdonald found that Ford’s words were not defamatory — and that Foulidis didn’t even prove that Ford was referring to him in particular. Ford’s lawyer, Gavin Tighe, said the mayor is “pleased with the result.”

Foulidis’s lawyer, Brian Shiller, said they will consider an appeal but are in the early stages of reviewing the decision. Foulidis had alleged that his reputation was severely damaged by Ford’s criticism of the no-bid 20-year contract city council awarded Foulidis’s

company, Tuggs Inc., for the exclusive right to sell food on city land in the Eastern Beaches. Asked by a Sun journalist about “the Foulidis deal,” Ford responded that immense “corruption and skullduggery” occurs during council’s “incamera” closed sessions, then

continued: “If Tuggs isn’t, I don’t know what is. And I can’t accuse anyone, or I can’t pinpoint it, but why do we have to go in-camera on a Tuggs deal?” It’s obvious Ford was saying only that he “sensed or suspected” corruption, Macdonald wrote. torstar news service

Teen arrested for Facebook fight video A Mississauga mother said her 13-year-old son is scarred for life after he was arrested at his middle school and brought to a police station in handcuffs over a video he posted to Facebook. The Tomken Road Middle School student is alleged to have recorded a cellphone video of a scrap between two female classmates off school property on Dec. 17 and then posted it to his online profile. The boy’s mother said her son was called to the school’s office on Dec. 19, where he was arrested by police, handcuffed and taken from the building to a police cruiser as other stu-

Quoted

“How is an adult or an educator going to justify this situation — traumatizing a child and handcuffing him? Who’s the bigger bully?” Mother of a 13-year-old Mississauga boy who was arrested at his middle school over a video he posted to his Facebook profile of a scuffle between two classmates

dents looked on. After a year of reported tragedy that has shed light on cyber-bullying of schoolaged children, the boy, who can’t be identified under the Youth Criminal Justice Act, was charged with mischief. His mother, who also can’t

be named to protect the boy’s identity, said the principal and school trustee called to say her son would be suspended for a month and transferred to another school. On Thursday, Peel police said an underage female student, who also cannot be iden-

tified, was charged with assault on Dec. 19. Const. Erin Cooper said the boy’s mischief charges relate to interfering with the victim’s reasonable use and enjoyment of Facebook, as outlined in the Criminal Code. Police could not confirm whether the boy was handcuffed during arrest. The boy’s mother said she’s not condoning the fight or her son’s actions, but doesn’t understand why he is being singled out in a situation she said was unfairly escalated by administration and police.

‘Gay penguins’ father chicks at Toronto Zoo Holiday arrivals. Separated from each other for the breeding program in 2011, Buddy and Pedro spent all summer with their respective female mates The holiday season has been a busy one for nesting penguins at the Toronto Zoo — five chicks have hatched to four couples, including Buddy and Pedro, once famously dubbed the “gay penguins.” All five chicks are healthy and show promise of surviving past the crucial three-week mark. Most chicks who make it past that point will have healthy lives. Of five chicks born last breeding season, just three survived. Zookeepers are optimistic that a year of bonding over buckets of fish, swims and long waddles on the beach has prepared the couples for better breeding. The first attempt to breed

At first there was much public hand-wringing over the separation of Pedro and Buddy, but their offspring are essential to keeping the endangered African penguin species around. • And the two seem to be handling the breakup well. “They’re certainly still friends — we’re very fortunate that our group gets along very well with each other,” said zookeeper Brandon Wyatt.

Two police officers seriously injured in crash Two police officers were airlifted to hospital after their cruiser collided with a pickup truck in East Gwillimbury, the second serious crash on the same road in just a few hours on Thursday. York Region media officers Sgt. Kelly Bachoo and Const. Andy Pattenden suffered serious but non-lifethreatening injuries in the crash around 4 p.m. at McCowan and Mount Albert roads, York police said. The driver of the pickup truck suffered minor injuries. TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE Scandal fallout

Ornge says whistleblowers to be protected Ontario’s embattled air ambulance service said Thursday it is taking steps to protect whistleblowers as it strives to bounce back from a series of scandals, including a criminal investigation. Ornge said it is implementing a new whistleblower policy that will allow employees to voice their concerns in a confidential manner without fear of reprisal.

‘Still friends’

them was met with challenges — Pedro and his partner Thandiwey failed to produce any eggs, while Buddy and his mate, Farai, had two chicks but they were smothered because the pair built the nest too small. Both are now fathers with their respective female partners. Pedro came first, with his chick hatching Dec. 16, followed by Buddy on Dec. 23.

Friday and Saturday are expected to have highs around zero, with more flurries.

December neared its end, Ilsa Naveed, 13, started to worry that the snow wouldn’t come. On Thursday morning, the family awoke early, having heard weather reports that Toronto would finally get a dump of the white stuff. It did — the city was blanketed in 15 centimetres, the first proper snowfall of the season, while the wider GTA

had about 10 centimetres. “We were really happy to see snow after all,” said Ilsa, smiling at her younger brother and sister as they threw snowballs, piled powder into castles and mountains and made snow angels, behind a library on Thorncliffe Park Drive. Cousins Shamir, 6, and Zymal, 5, Imran, who have lived in Toronto for four years, spent hours outside Thursday with the Naveeds, showing them how it’s done. “We feel a light coming from the snow,” said Erum. “It’s beautiful....

Hitting the bottle. 41% of Canadians spend over $50 on booze in a weekend: Survey How much do you spend on booze in a weekend? If it’s more than $50, you’re among friends. A survey from Play Taxi Media shows 41 per cent of Canadians spend over $50 from Friday to Sunday, with 23 per cent of this group regularly spending more than $100. Play Taxi Media, a Canadian-based media company with a national network of touch screens in taxicabs, surveyed more than 8,000 riders in November about their drinking habits. Beer was out in front as the favourite boozy beverage among those surveyed, with 37 per cent saying they

prefer it to other drinks. Wine came in second at 22 per cent. Amongst beer drinkers Heineken was top choice at 39 per cent, over Corona (29 per cent), Molson Canadian (24 per cent) and Labatt Blue (eight per cent). Vodka is the most popular spirit, with 35 per cent of surveyed riders preferring it, followed by whisky, then rum. And it’s likely a lot of people got a bottle of alcohol as a gift this Christmas, as only 17 per cent of respondents said they’ve never bought booze for someone else. Play Taxi Media

Monster storm grounds flights, causes car pileup

‘A series of setbacks.’ Doctors still cautiously optimistic about Bush Sr. Former U.S. President George H.W. Bush remained in the intensive care unit Thursday at a Texas hospital after suffering “a series of setbacks,” including a stubborn fever, his spokesman said. In a brief email Wednesday, Bush spokesman Jim McGrath said the 88-year-old had been admitted Sunday to Methodist Hospital. He said Bush, the oldest living former U.S. president, was alert and talking to medical staff. He said doctors were cautiously optimistic about Bush’s treatment and that the former president “remains in guarded condition.” On Thursday, McGrath told The Associated Press he had no new information on Bush’s condition and that he would release another statement “when events warrant it.” Bush has been hospitalized since Nov. 23, when he was admitted for a lingering cough related to bronchitis after being in and out of the hospital for com-

plications related to the illness. A fever that kept Bush in the hospital over Christmas had gotten worse, and doctors had put him on a liquids-only diet Wednesday. “It’s a stubborn fever that won’t go away,” McGrath said. The former president achieved notoriety in retirement for skydiving on at least three of his birthdays since leaving the White House in 1992. the associated press

Mandela’s grandson, Mandla Mandela, said he hopes “it won’t be too long before he’s with us back in Qunu, where he belongs,” but acknowledged that the doctors’ assessment is critical to any decision to travel. Mandela was admitted Dec. 8 to a hospital in the South African capital of Pretoria, 50 kilometres north of Johannesburg. The ex-president was treated for a lung infection and also had a procedure to remove gallstones. Mandela is revered around the world as a symbol of sacrifice and reconciliation; a legacy forged in the fight against apartheid. the associated press

The doctors treating former South African leader Nelson Mandela believe he should remain in Johannesburg for now to be close to medical facilities that can provide care to the 94-year-old, the government said Thursday. Mandela left a hospital Wednesday evening after nearly three weeks of treatment, and was brought to his home in the Johannesburg neighbourhood of Houghton. The anti-apartheid icon, also known by his clan name, Madiba, has spent more time in recent years in the rural village of Qunu in Eastern Cape province, where he grew up.

Southern Ontario was spared the worst of the storm.

The U.S. gunman who lured two firefighters to their deaths died of a self-inflicted shot to the head and wasn’t hit by return fire from a police officer, New York State Police said Thursday. Investigators still hadn’t made a positive identification of the body found in 62-yearold William Spengler’s burned house. They have said

they believe the remains are those of his 67-year-old sister, Cheryl Spengler, who also lived there. Spengler set his home and a car on fire before dawn on Christmas Eve, took up a sniper’s position and opened fire on the first firefighters to arrive, authorities said. He wounded two firefighters and a police officer. Autopsies showed that volunteer firefighter Michael Chiapperini died of a single gunshot and Tomasz Kaczowka was killed by two, police said. Trooper Mark O’Donnell said investigators weren’t releasing information about how Spengler got the military-

style Bushmaster .223-calibre semiautomatic rifle, 12-gauge shotgun and .38-calibre revolver found with his body. He said they’re still tracing the history of the guns. Spengler spent 17 years in prison for killing his grandmother with a hammer in 1980 and was barred from possessing weapons as a convicted felon. Authorities said they had no encounters with him after he was released from prison. After Monday’s attack, investigators found a typed letter laying out Spengler’s intention to destroy his neighbourhood and “do what I like doing best, killing people.” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Police chief wants earlier last call at Halifax nightclubs Halifax’s new police chief is drawing ire from the bar industry following his call to make nightclubs stop serving at 2 a.m. Jean-Michel Blais, who’s been on the job since October, wants the province to amend regulations that allow clubs with cabaret licences to serve liquor until 3:30 a.m., citing booze-fuelled late-night violence in the downtown entertainment district. The executive director of the Restaurant Association of Nova Scotia, Gordon Stewart, called it a “knee-jerk reaction”

to the problem. “He’s putting it on the back of the bar industry,” said Stewart. Most bars in the province do last call at 2 a.m. But there are eight watering holes with cabaret licences, four of those in Halifax. Police argue that cutting people off earlier would put a dent in a crime spike that happens between 2 and 4 a.m. in Halifax’s lively downtown bar district that has more than 250 licensed establishments. In 2011, there were 155 assaults on weekend nights in

the area, with a third of those occurring between 3 and 4 a.m. Property damage, drunk driving and liquor offences were also higher. “The later you’re getting, the more violence you’re seeing,” said Halifax Regional Police spokesperson Pierre Bourdages. Police are in “preliminary” discussions with the province, he said. “We’re devoting an enormous amount of police resources just to this area on weekends.... There’s a cost to society of this.” TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Chief’s hunger strike drags onward Attawapiskat. New Democrat MP fearful of a national crisis should things worsen An aboriginal chief’s decision to go on a hunger strike until the prime minister agrees to a meeting has entered a deadly serious phase, a New Democrat MP said Thursday. Charlie Angus, who stood by Attawapiskat Chief Theresa Spence as she began her fast on Dec. 11, says he’s now reaching out to area chiefs to see what steps can be taken to solve what’s at risk of becoming a national crisis.

“This is much bigger than Theresa Spence, it’s much bigger than any individual community,” Angus said Thursday as he prepared to travel to Ottawa to visit Spence on Friday. Spence launched her protest earlier this month with a vow to “die” unless the Conservative government started showing more respect to First Nations concerns and aboriginal treaties. She is demanding a meeting between the Crown, Prime Minister Stephen Harper and First Nations leaders to create a new relationship. Her remote northern Ontario reserve was catapulted into the spotlight late last year after Angus wrote about the

dire housing and economic conditions. The crisis in Attawapiskat was followed by a historic Crown–First Nations gathering in Ottawa in January, where Harper met with aboriginal leadership to discuss economic and social development. Aboriginal Affairs Minister John Duncan has expressed disappointment that Spence will meet with other politicians but

not him. “Given your willingness to accept meetings now I am hoping that you will reconsider my offer, as a Minister of the Crown, to meet or speak with you,” Duncan wrote Spence late Wednesday night. Though Spence has declared a hunger strike, for the last two and a half weeks she has subsisted on some soup and tea. The Canadian Press

Young victims of sex tourists get second chance Cambodia. Former Mountie co-founded centre for exploited girls after helping to catch Canadian perpetrator

T:12.5”

At a nondescript, discrete compound in Cambodia, young girls form an orderly queue to be served noodles in the NewSong centre. The newest among them, a seven-year-old nicknamed Srey, barges past the line, grabs fistfuls of the slippery food and bolts out the door. She’s spotted in the backyard, furtively stuffing her face like an animal. Her adult caregivers don’t bat an eye. It’s one of the child’s first meals since being rescued from a backstreet brothel where she was forced into sex with adult men — almost certainly Canadians among them.

“When she wasn’t actually being abused by customers, they kept her chained below a table,” said Brian McConaghy, the Vancouver-based former Mountie and co-founder of the rehabilitation centre for sexually abused and exploited girls. The brothel owners would

scrape their leftovers onto the floor when they were done eating. Srey’s every meal was a competition with their dogs. McConaghy will visit the girls again in January, including now 10-year-old Srey and several teens who were the victims of Canada’s first prosecuted childsex tourist, Donald Bakker. The Vancouver man was arrested nearly a decade ago, largely as a result of the thenRCMP forensics investigator McConaghy. Each time he returns to the sanctuary, which he set up after leaving the RCMP to devote himself to victims, he sees signs indicating Canadians are still committing “grotesque” crimes against the country’s most defenceless. Predators believe themselves immune and critics argue Canada’s record doesn’t contradict them: Only five men have been punished under Canadian laws against child sex tourism in 15 years.

Egypt’s top prosecutor has ordered an investigation into accusations against opposition leaders, from left, Mohammed ElBaradei, Amr Moussa,and Hamdeen Sabahi. the associated press File

Egypt opposition accused of treason Incitement. Allegations come one day after Morsi called for national dialogue to heal rifts Egypt’s chief prosecutor ordered an investigation on Thursday into allegations that opposition leaders committed treason by inciting supporters to overthrow Islamist President Mohammed Morsi. The probe by a Morsi-

appointed prosecutor was launched a day after the president called for a dialogue with the opposition to heal rifts opened in the bitter fight over an Islamist-drafted constitution just approved in a referendum. The opposition decried the investigation as a throwback to Hosni Mubarak’s regime, when the law was used to smear and silence opponents. The probe was almost certain to sour the already tense atmosphere in the country. The allegations were made

initially in a complaint by at least two lawyers sent to the chief prosecutor earlier this month. They targeted opposition leaders Mohammed ElBaradei, a Nobel Peace laureate and former head of the UN nuclear agency, former Foreign Minister Amr Moussa, and Hamdeen Sabahi. Both Moussa and Sabahi were presidential candidates who ran against Morsi in the last election. The opposition dismissed the allegations. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


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

LOOKING FORWARD TO AN EXCITING YEAR ON THE TTC W

ANDY BYFORD CEO TORONTO TRANSIT COMMISSION

ith 2013 just around the corner, a critical year in our quest to modernize the TTC is before us. Having laid the foundations for a more business-like and customer-focused approach in the past 12 months, I want the TTC to make real progress in improving customer satisfaction this coming year. Early in 2013, we will launch the first-ever TTC Customer Charter. This is a statement of what you can expect from us by way of ongoing, basic service delivery. But it will also commit us to specific, time-bound improvements to be delivered each quarter. We will publicly report against these commitments so that you can hold us to account. We will also begin to roll out a new way of managing our subway service early in 2013. Based on the well-proven London Underground model, Group Station Managers will be accountable for groups of stations and adjacent bus and streetcar interchanges, with a mandate to improve customer service and safety, to motivate and manage groups of staff and to be highly visible members of the local community. This will be the first part of a transformation of our staffing model that will see a much more proactive approach to customer service as we phase out the existing fare system and replace it with the PRESTO fare card over the next few years. The

process will also involve reconfiguring stations to allow staff to engage more with customers and help them where and when they need it. The coming year will also see further rollout of Toronto Rocket trains, testing of the new lowfloor streetcars and reintroduction of articulated buses on certain routes. We will also complete the modernization of Pape Station. Next year, I want us to drastically reduce the number of short turns on our surface routes. This will be achieved through better supervision and a more rigorous approach to control of vehicle bunching. I also intend to improve communication to customers where such short turns are unavoidable. Other improvements next year will include customer safety and security through our team of Transit Enforcement Officers, customer information via rollout of better on-system information, as well as improvements to the way we engage with stakeholders and our neighbours. All of this has to be achieved within a tight budget with no increase in subsidy from 2012. By constantly seeking to be more efficient and through adoption of modern business practice, I believe all of this can be delivered, and it is my job to do just that. From all of us here at the TTC, have a happy, safe and prosperous new year!

That didn't sit well with Zuckerberg's sister, Randi, who tweeted at Callie Schweitzer that the picture was meant for friends only and that posting the private picture on Twitter was “way uncool.” Schweitzer replied by saying the picture popped up on her Facebook news feed.

To or from the fiscal cliff? U.S. President Barack Obama returned to the White House in Washington, D.C., Thursday, from his Christmas break in Hawaii to deal with the fiscal cliff. A last-gasp effort Thursday to avoid automatic tax increases and spending cuts got off on the same convulsive, partisan tone that marked congressional attempts to resolve the impasse before lawmakers headed home for Christmas. With a Dec. 31 deadline for an agreement to avert the so-called “fiscal cliff” rapidly approaching, leaders in each party demanded the other side take the initiative. Alex Wong/Getty Images

biebs watch, mother nature A new twist on the old shell game pays a visit and antisocial media the list

Paul Sullivan metronews.ca

1

It’s time for the last Metro List of 2012! So let’s rearrange those deck chairs before we fall off the fiscal cliff … or something like that.

Cliff-diving. The U.S. legislative and executive branches are playing a giant game of chicken with the global economy. Unless someone blinks and passes emergency legislation, the United States could bump its head on the debt ceiling early in the New Year and plunge the world into another 2008-style recession. Happy New Year, right? Boxing Day madness. The annual post-Christmas shopathon is crazier than ever this year, as people across the country brave arctic temperatures while waiting in line to save a few dollars on stuff they don’t need, right after a Christmas orgy of giving each other stuff they don’t need. Could be a case of shop till you drop off the fiscal cliff.  O little town of Attawapiskat. This poverty-stricken Ontario First Nation has become the focal point for a national aboriginal protest movement. Chief Theresa Spence is 17 days into a hunger strike and says unless the Prime Minister sits down to a meeting on her terms, she’ll keep it up until she dies. First Nations people have taken up her cause and are jamming the malls and streets, disrupting the above-mentioned shopping frenzy. Over to you, Mr. Harper. Worst social-media trend ever. People in the U.S. tweeting pix of themselves grinning and gripping their new Christmas presents: AR-15 assault weapons — the very same type that was used in the Sandy Hook school shooting in Connecticut. With any luck, they won’t shoot their eye out. Or anyone else’s, for that matter. The nerve Randi Zuckerberg, the sister of the man who invented Facebook, the world’s foremost invasion of privacy, is PO’d at a friend who shared a Zuckerberg family photo already posted on Facebook. Huh? Hey, it snowed. Mother Nature is not done with Toronto after all, bestowing a post-Christmas gift of 15 centimetres of snow on the metropolis. Forget about planting that palm tree, maybe. Mayor Rob Ford, to his credit, does not call in the army, a Snow Day tradition established by the last bad boy mayor, Mel Lastman. OK, I built it, so where is everybody? Calgarian Norm Price goes to a lot of trouble and builds a giant skating rink on his property. It’s even got lights for nighttime skating. Only trouble is: No skaters. Sure, it’s cold, but Norm is offering hot chocolate and hot dogs. Whatever, Norm’s used to giving till it hurts. Last Christmas, he gave his sister a kidney. Beats an AR-15, I’d say. Jelena watch. Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez could be getting back together. The on-again, off-again couple were spotted going all on-again at the Salt Lake City airport. (What else is there to do at the Salt Lake City airport?) Don’t worry about all that bad news. Things are going to be OK after all.

Turtle vision

Shell shocker

Student aims to save the turtles Nathan Weaver, right, a student at Clemson University, talks to his professor, Rob Baldwin, on Dec. 12 as they wait to see if a fake turtle he is using in his research is run over near Clemson, S.C. Weaver is placing the fake turtle on roads near the campus to see how many drivers intentionally run over it. the associated press

Incredible journey

“I’ve heard of people and from friends who knew people that ran over turtles. But to see it out here like this was a bit shocking.”

7

It takes a turtle seven or eight years to become mature enough to reproduce, and in that time it might make several trips across the road to get from one pond to another, looking for food or a place to lay eggs. A female turtle that lives 50 years might lay more than 100 eggs, but just two or three are likely to survive to reproduce, says Rob Baldwin, Nathan Weaver’s professor at Clemson University.

Clemson University student Nathan Weaver, who watched as seven drivers within one hour swerved and deliberately ran over the plastic turtle he placed on the road.

Reptilian remedies

Are turtle trestles the answer? Weaver, who became interested in conservation through the Boy Scouts and TV’s Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin, wants to figure out the best way to get turtles safely across the road and keep the population from dwindling further. Among the possible solutions: turtle underpasses or an education campaign aimed at teenagers on why drivers shouldn’t mow turtles down. the associated press

Joaquin Phoenix turns in an unforgettable performance as a Naval veteran who becomes deeply involved with a cult upon his return from the war in The Master. HANDOUT Reel Guys

RICHARD CROUSE AND MARK BRESLIN

Best of the big screen The year in review. From childish charms to fantastic frights, Metro’s movie mavericks reveal their top picks from 2012 Richard: Mark, I’m very surprised to find that when I look back at my favourite films of the year, many of them fall under one category — kids’ films. ParaNorman harkens back to a time when Disney used to make creepy cartoons like The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, before it was decided that children shouldn’t be exposed to anything except talking animals and stories about the ecology. I also loved Brave and Madagascar 3. How about you? Mark: Richard, I have a two-

Blast from the past

The Reel Guys are taking a break from looking at film screens to look back at the year that was at the movies. They’ve sat through a cinematic blend of the good, the bad and the ugly this year and today they look back on the good times.

year-old at home, so the thought of kids’ movies just reminds me of my lack of sleep and the drool on my sweater. My favourite film of the year was definitely not for kids — The Master. Two brilliant actors — Philip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix — facing off in a story about power and ideals in a post-war cult, was about as good as it gets for me. Not that the film was perfect — it

had no ending and ran out of steam in the last 20 minutes. But it was an ambitious film about ambition. RC: I loved The Master as well, but man-oh-man did I get some hate mail regarding my endorsement of the movie. It was polarizing and those who hated it were quite vocal. Less controversial, but almost as strange, was Cabin in the Woods. I can tell you there has never been a slasher flick quite like Cabin. The subversive mix of horror movie lore, post-modern self-awareness and gruesome gags isn’t new, but rarely has it been this smartly presented. MB: I loved Cabin in the Woods, but another favourite horror film this year was Sinister, with Ethan Hawke. It was truly disturbing and got under my skin in a truly creepy way. But here’s a movie I loved that most

people couldn’t sit through: Cosmopolis by David Cronenberg. Plotless, talky, theoretical as a grad thesis, but the most relevant film of the year in terms of what’s really going on. And Paul Giamatti’s burst of lucid insanity at the end of the movie was as good a piece of acting and dialogue as anything I’ve seen this year. RC: I liked that too, as well as newer releases like Django Unchained, Zero Dark Thirty and The Guilt Trip, but I also want to mention The Grey from earlier on. The mix of Liam Neeson, wolves and unbridled manliness made The Expendables look positively delicate by comparison. MB: I liked The Grey as well. But I always like to put a comedy on my list and this year it was Lola Versus, an indie picture that was like Annie Hall from Diane Keaton’s point of view.

Not Fade Away Director. David Chase Stars. John Magaro, Jack Huston

••••• The core of the story revolves around rock ‘n’ blues music, wannabe New Jersey rock star Doug (John Magaro) and the repercussions of living through the turbulent 1960s. Sopranos creator David Chase nicely sets up the decade and the anti-establishment stance personified by the soundtrack’s music, but is let down by episodic storytelling and the lack of really compelling characters or situations. From the opening moments the story builds to an anti-climax, and on that score it delivers, providing one of the oddest and least satisfying conclusions to a movie in recent memory. richard crouse

Merlin’s magic rooted in show’s talented writers Final season. The fantasy TV series based on Camelot’s cast of characters balances intense scenes with a certain lightness

Merlin

When and where can I watch? • The show. Merlin’s new season airs on Space starting Jan. 2

Stephen Eramo

scene@metronews.ca

Since arriving in Camelot, a young man named Merlin has secretly used his magical powers to not only help protect the legendary kingdom, but also unlock its many secrets. In doing so, our unsung hero discovered that he and Camelot’s future king, Arthur, shared a common destiny. In the fifth and final season of the hit fantasy TV series Merlin, the now-King Arthur and his loyal servant Merlin are pitted against evil forces committed to destroying Camelot. Throughout it all, the one constant is their enduring friendship. “When we first met Merlin, he was a young man and Arthur (Bradley James) was a young prince,” says Colin Morgan, who plays Merlin. “In the past five seasons, my character has gone from being a poodle to an Irish wolfhound. It’s been a big learning curve for him as well as Arthur. They’ve grown up together, both as characters and in their friendship. Merlin and Arthur are essentially complete opposites, but have to work side-by-side towards the same goal.”

Bradley James stars as Camelot’s now-king, Arthur, in the fifth season of Merlin. handout

“With Merlin and Arthur, you can be in the middle of telling this full-blown opera given the intensity of their dilemma, and they can turn it into an operetta. I’ve always liked when the two of them are facing certain doom

and they bring a lightness to the situation,” adds Bradley James. Merlin’s two-part season five opener, called Arthur’s Bane, is set three years after the year four finale and sees the return of the show’s most

beautiful and formidable adversary, Morgana, played by Katie McGrath. “It’s interesting because what they (the show’s writers) did with Morgana in the time between seasons four and five really helped me with my performance because it moved my character on from where she was in the fourth season,” says McGrath. “The fact that she had been directly persecuted for being magical sort of vindicated her feelings of anger towards Arthur. That reinforced Morgana’s belief that she was doing the right thing in trying to remove him from the throne. “So if it’s possible, she is now more determined than before, and maybe a little bit crazy, too.” Looking ahead, what will Morgan miss most about Merlin? “I think we all agree what we’ll miss most will be the people,” says the actor. “We had to do a lot of things bordering on the ridiculous to the emotionally charged, and without the support of everyone working on the show, that could have been very difficult, but it wasn’t. It was a genuinely enjoyable experience.”

Top-of-theline fizzy fun LIQUID ASSETS

LIFE

As much as it pains me to admit it, I know that most of you will be having sparkling wine for the first time this year as an adiós toast to the end of 2012 and the start of 2013. What kills me is that a glass of bubbles can be so much more than just a ching ching supporting actor to a standalone celebration: Brunch enhancer (check), accommodating big meal mate (check), Super Bowl junk food companion (check)! For top-of-the-line fizzy fun, uncork a bottle of champagne. Most bubbly production tricks were originally put to bottle in the French region (about an hour north of Paris) that shares its name and that pedigree never comes cheap. Less expensive versions — using champagne’s “traditional method” of winemaking — can be found from countries the world over. Just pick your price range and fill your flute. The hottest trend in alternative effervescence is Prosecco, a light-bodied wine made from the glera grape in northern Italy. With its festive froth, ripe, tropical fruit and cleansing acidity, La Marca Prosecco ($17.95 to $17.99) will help make your midnight merry. Happy New Year’s to one and all! PRICES

Canadian juniors backing Subban as top goaltender Malcolm Subban’s acrobatics, experience and flair have made him Canada’s starting goaltender at the world junior hockey championship ... for now. Instead of letting the goaltending question linger deep into the tournament, coach Steve Spott felt it better to end speculation after Canada’s opening game and infuse Subban with the confidence of knowing he’s the man in net for the tournament. “Malcolm’s play is going to dictate how far he goes, but right now he’s the guy we’re going to continue to run with and it’s going to be up to him to carry the ball,” the coach said Thursday. The Belleville Bulls goalie has size, reach and speed, plus familiarity with the wider ice in Europe because Belleville’s Yardmen Arena is the same size. The six-foot-two, 200-pound Subban sells his glove saves with a flick of the wrist, which tells the players in front of him

Close call

A nervous moment came in Canada’s practice Thursday when Boone Jenner collided with defencemen Xavier Ouellet in the neutral zone. •

Both players got slowly to their feet. Jenner can’t play until Monday because of a three-game suspension.

“They’re both fine,” coach Steve Spott said.

“I got his.” “I feel like making those saves obviously helps a lot, and making them a little fancy gives the team a little confidence,” Subban said. “Just knowing your coaches have the confidence in you, that you’re going to play all the games, that helps a lot obviously as well.” So after stopping 25 of 28 shots in Canada’s 9-3 win over Germany to open the tournament, the 19-year-old from Toronto will be back in the net for Friday’s Pool B game versus Slovakia. Canada tops the pool at 1-0 with three points. The Slovaks forced Russia to overtime Wednesday before the hosts pulled out a 3-2 victory for two points.

Subban’s point-blank pad save on Germany’s Tobias Rieder in the third period Wednesday demonstrated he can make game-changing saves. “Everyone has seen that save that I don’t think many people could make it,” goaltending coach Ron Tugnutt said. “When he makes that save, the bench kind of straightens up and gets

excited.” The flaw in Subban’s game has been lapses of concentration resulting in questionable or soft goals. Jordan Binnington of the Owen Sound Attack is less flamboyant in net, but his solid technique made the goaltending competition interesting at selection camp in Calgary.

Spott believes Subban has the mental resilience to recover from gaffes, but prefers the Boston Bruins prospect not make them in the first place. “These are one-goal games and if our goaltender goes to sleep for one second that could determine a gold or a silver medal,” Spott said.

If there were any doubts about Canada’s scoring touch at the Spengler Cup, they were emphatically put to rest Thursday. Byron Ritchie scored two second-period goals to lead Canada to a convincing 5-0 win over host HC Davos. Canada (1-1) took better advantage of its offensive chances in this contest against the defending tournament champion than it did in its opener, a stunning 2-1 overtime loss to German side Adler Mannheim. “None of these guys were happy about losing last night and they certainly showed it in their play tonight,” said head coach Doug Shedden. “We put

Players like Jason Spezza, Sam Gakilled teammate and friend Jerry Brown, according to documents released by police Thursday.

Sinclair the clear choice for Canada’s top female Bobbie Rosenfeld Award. Canadian women’s soccer captain has won nearly every athlete-of-theyear award this month Little about Christine Sinclair’s brilliant performance at the London Olympics came as a surprise to her teammates. But it allowed the rest of the world to finally see the captain they all know so well. The 29-year-old star of Canada’s women’s soccer team lifted her squad to a bronze medal at last summer’s Olympics, Canada’s first medal in a traditional team sport since 1936. The result firmly entrenched her as a Canadian sports hero and brought global acclaim to a player who has been among the best for years. It also capped a tremendous season that earned her the Bobbie Rosenfeld Award as The Canadian Press female athlete of 2012. “She’s always been one of the best in the world; she’s always been fantastic, and what’s great about this year is that the world got to see her at the highest stage — Olympics,” said Canada’s veteran goalkeeper Karina LeBlanc. “The world was watching, and she showed what we’ve all known for so long. “People are starting to see all sides of her — her funny side and her humble side. She’s a phenomenal athlete and she believes so much.” Sinclair earned 269 points, including the majority of

Olympic trampoline champion Rosie MacLennan was second with 118 points, ahead of speed skater Christine Nesbitt (76), tennis player Eugenie Bouchard (30) and hockey player Caroline Ouellette (27). “It’s a huge honour,” the Burnaby, B.C., native said before deflecting praise to her teammates. “I’m proud of our team. We had a goal this year heading into the Olympics, and that was to bring home a medal, and we

AHL. Marlies stick with their winning formula The first-place Toronto Marlies are looking like a model of success in the American Hockey League this season. For the second year in a row, the Marlies are playing winning hockey by following an organizational model of defence and accountability. But there’s more to the success of Dallas Eakins’ team than just following a blueprint. The Marlies, after living up to expectations with an appearance in the AHL final last season, are refusing to let any kind of setback derail them in 2013. That has proved challenging because the roster is overflowing with locked-out NHLers, making ice time difficult to come by for many players. The Marlies have charged into first place in the North Division, riding an 11-2 streak as they get set for a weekend series in Grand Rapids, Mich. Toronto is loaded with NHL-calibre players, so it’s fair to set expectations at a high level. The club has suffered injuries to several key players — Jake Gardiner, Jussi Rynnas, Nazem Kadri and Mike Zigomanis — yet still managed to succeed. The commitment to defence and responsibility is firmly entrenched from last year’s run to the final. This year, with the NHL lockout running into the new year, there is much more public focus on the team, yet the increased attention hasn’t distracted the from fulfilling that commitment. “I think the city has paid more attention to what our players are doing individually and as a team,” Eakins said. “We have outstanding young men who are leaders and are of high character. We

“Any wins that have my name attached is all because of our players’ commitment on those given nights and throughout the season.” Toronto Marlies coach Dallas Eakins, who on Dec. 22 passed Paul Gardner to become the Marlies’ winningest coach since the team moved to the AHL in the 1970s.

want these kind of individuals representing our city of Toronto’s name. The players understand their place in this hockey-first city.” Indeed, the city is paying more attention to the Marlies, and it’s not entirely owing to the lockout. The team sold out the Air Canada Centre on Boxing Day — 18,800 fans filled the rink — to set a new indoor-attendance record for the AHL. The record crowd also vaulted the Marlies’ 2012-13 attendance to unprecedented levels. The club has jumped from sixth in the AHL in pergame attendance to second , at 7,025. torstar news service

Horoscopes

Aries

March 21 - April 20 Try not to be too easily influenced by what other people say. If you are not certain what to believe it may be tempting to follow the crowd, but that could lead you in the wrong direction. Be independent and patient.

Taurus

April 21 - May 21 Because you find it hard to see the wider picture and understand how things fit together, you may find yourself at a bit of a loss today. Never mind. Everything will make sense once the full moon begins to wane.

Gemini

May 22 - June 21 No one is perfect, not even you, so accept that mistakes will be made and that it is all part of the game called Life. Strive to raise your mind above petty differences – in the greater scheme of things they really don’t matter.

Cancer

June 22 - July 23 Today’s full moon in your sign urges you to be realistic about what you can achieve. It also tells you to form alliances with people who can help you get what you want.

Leo

July 24 - Aug. 23 If you take too much for granted over the next 24 hours, it could end in disappointment when your efforts bring in less than you think you deserve. Confidence is a fragile thing – don’t do anything that might lead to its loss.

Virgo

Aug. 24 - Sept. 23 There may be one or two tense moments with a loved one today, but you are entitled to stand up for yourself. Alternatively, if you can’t be bothered with confrontation, just stay out of their way.

By betty martin

Crossword

Libra

Sept. 24 - Oct. 23 Something will happen today that catches you unaware. Should you have seen it coming? Maybe, but that’s a question that no longer matters. What counts is what you are going to do next. Be bold. Seize the initiative.

Scorpio

Oct. 24 - Nov. 22 You are entitled to your opinions, but if at some stage today it becomes obvious that your opinions are wrong, you must change them. If you keep pushing a viewpoint that is out of date, your reputation may suffer.

Sagittarius

Nov. 23 - Dec. 21 The full moon warns if you give away too much personal information now you will regret it later. Beware strangers who seek to strike up a rapport. Chances are they’re after something — most likely your hard-earned cash.

Capricorn

Dec. 22 - Jan. 20 If you are wise, you will wait until today’s full moon has begun to wane before pushing ahead with a plan or project. You should also get other people involved, even if it is something highly personal.

Pisces

Feb. 20 - March 20 What you want to do and what family and friends want to do are likely to be two entirely different things today, in which case you must either compromise or go off on your own. Compromise is better.
