Bruins make emotional return to Boston ice NHL. Fans mourn and then cheer as Bruins return to action Emerging from a moment of silence with a deafening cheer, fans at Wednesday night’s Bruins game paid tribute to the victims of this week’s Boston Marathon bombing with a stirring national anthem and a thunderous chant of “U.S.A.!” The sold-out crowd at the first major sporting event in the city since Monday’s attack lined up for metal-detecting wands and random car inspections to get into the TD Garden. Once inside, they watched a sombre video with scenes from the race, ending with the words, “We are Boston, We are Strong.” The players on the ice for the opening faceoff banged their sticks in the traditional salute, drifting back off the MLB

ACAD student kills chicken in cafeteria Police. Investigators have yet to determine if the student will face charges KATIE TURNER

katie.turner@metronews.ca

Students at the Alberta College of Art and Design were witness to a less-than-appetizing lunchtime demonstration Thursday, as a student reportedly killed a live chicken in the cafeteria. Second-year photography student Morgan Fraser said she and some friends were sitting in the cafeteria when a student pulled a live chicken out of a box, calmed it, slit its throat and then proceeded

to remove its head, feathers and some of its limbs. “You had people crying and really upset about it,” she said. “I don’t think people were too happy with it.” Fraser estimates it was about 45 minutes before people intervened, and she said she heard rumours the student had planned to eat the chicken raw. Officials with ACAD and Calgary police said they’re now investigating. Duty Insp. Rick Tuza said officers were called to the school around 12:15 p.m. “When we arrived, we were able to determine that this was an act as part of an assignment to perform and film a public protest,” he said. Tuza said police spoke with the student but haven’t

taken him into custody. He said they’ll be consulting with the Crown on the next steps. Chair of the School of Visual Art, Richard Brown, said the school is conducting its own investigation and has yet to make a decision on what, if any, disciplinary action will be taken against the student. “We certainly don’t condone the killing of a live animal — absolutely not,” said Brown. He said ACAD fosters an environment where students are able to pose questions. “Obviously, it wasn’t the best way to articulate those questions,” he said. A post on ACAD’s Facebook page indicates they’re offering support to students who witnessed the incident.

Transit. Overtime costs still over budget

Mount Royal student leaders Kaylene McTavish, left, and Michelle Dennis organized a sit-in protest at the university library on Thursday during ongoing protests over provincial funding cuts. Universities across the province are grappling with a 7.3 per cent cut to provincial funding. JEREMY NOLAIS/METRO

jeremy.nolais@metronews.ca

Government officials touted a full freeze on Alberta postsecondary tuition on Thursday that had already been announced, but students were quick to point out they’re still in line to pay more.

Metro reported last week that an additional $16.5 million in government funding will see scheduled 2.15 per cent tuition hikes rescinded at the University of Calgary and Mount Royal University. But both schools are tacking on extra costs in the form of services fees: U of C will raise its fees by $150 to $450, and Mount Royal will introduce a $240 charge. Advanced Education Minister Thomas Lukaszuk said all he can do is urge universities to reconsider non-instructional fees. “We can only regulate tuition and inflation-

ary costs of tuition,” he said. At Mount Royal, it seems likely students will be paying more for fewer services. Executives told those gathered at a general faculties meeting on Thursday that while the university trimmed nearly $5 million from its budget through program-

ming suspensions and intends to raise $4 million more through revenue-generating initiatives, a further $5 million will come out of budgets for services, maintenance and other areas. “We are being forced to eat our own children,” said Mount Royal dean of communications Marc Chikinda, who will see theatre and music performance diplomas in his faculty suspended. A few students in attendance wept as Chikinda addressed the crowd. WITH FILES FROM ANNALISE KLINGBEIL/ METRO IN EDMONTON

Overtime spending has come down since Calgary Transit blew its budget by $3.9 million in 2011, but it was still $2 million over budget in 2012 and, so far this year, is $700,000 over budget, aldermen heard on Thursday. “We’re in the negative for overtime currently,” transit director Doug Morgan told the city’s audit committee in the wake of a report that found the department had exceeded its 2011 budget by 71 per cent. Morgan said 2011 was an unusual year because Transit was “a bit surprised” when council decided to add 140,000 hours of service late in 2010, after initially planning to reduce service hours. As a result, overtime was needed to fill many of those extra shifts, Morgan said. The 100th anniversary of the Calgary Stampede and preparations to open the west LRT made 2012 a heavy year for transit service, too, he added. Morgan noted Transit’s overall budget in 2012 was $4.8 million to the positive, largely because of increased ridership. Ald. Richard Pootmans asked how operators’ absentee rate of 15.3 days per year compared to other jurisdictions. Staff from the city auditor’s office said other cities have similar rates but, regardless, a sick-and-accident rate that high requires management attention. Morgan said Transit is working with operators to improve their overall health. ROBSON FLETCHER/METRO

Logger still anonymous to couple he helped save Anniversary. Fort Macleod couple says they are happy and healthy one year after harrowing ordeal robson fletcher

robson.fletcher@metronews.ca

Anja and Jacob Oosterwijk were rescued after four days of being lost in the B.C. backcountry by contacting a logger over a radio they found in an uninhabited cabin. handout file

It’s been one year since Anja and Jacob Oosterwijk were rescued from a four-day ordeal lost in the British Columbia backcountry, thanks to the help of an unidentified logger they managed to contact via a crackly radio signal. The man likely saved their lives, but the husband and wife from Fort Macleod never learned his name and never had the chance to say thank you directly. “We really wanted to

thank him,” Anja said this week, recounting the events of April 2012. The Oosterwijks made national headlines after they failed to report back to family after setting out on a day trip to Fernie, B.C. The couple’s SUV got stuck after they took several wrong turns along the way, and they opted to abandon the vehicle and set out on foot. After trudging through deep snow in search of shelter all night, they happened upon an empty cabin in the Bull River area. For days, however, the couple was stuck in what Jacob described as a “beautiful prison” in the woods.

Boiling snow for water and subsisting on macaroni and sugar they found in the cabin, the couple searched for anything they could use to effect a rescue. Finally, on the third day, Anja said her husband found a radio she had initially overlooked, believing it was just a battery. They turned it on and it worked. Within hours, they received a reply to their calls for help. “We asked him: ‘Who are you?’” Anja recalled. “He said, ‘Just a logger.’” That logger contacted RCMP and the couple was rescued a short while later. The family asked for the logger’s name but police wouldn’t reveal his identity. Anja said they now respect his desire to remain anonymous, and have stopped searching for him. “It’s not that we’re not grateful — for sure, we are

— but it’s just that he didn’t want to give his name,” she said. Anja said the family asked police to thank the mystery logger on their behalf. And, if he happens to read this too, she said they are still grateful for his help. Legal privacy

RCMP spokesperson Doris Stapleton said police cannot legally reveal the identity of the logger if he wishes to remain anonymous. • “We abide by the privacy act,” Stapleton said. “Personal information under the control of a government institution shall not, without the consent of the individual to whom it relates, be used.”

Record revenue, record numbers for growing Calgary airport Eastern access. Negotiations with city still underway to expedite extension of Airport Trail to connect with Metis Trail robson fletcher

robson.fletcher@metronews.ca

The Calgary Airport Authority set a record year for revenue in 2012 and will set a record for capital spending in 2013, according to its CEO. “For the first time we exceed $300 million in revenues,” Garth Atkinson said of the past year, at the authority’s annual general meeting on Thursday. Looking forward, Atkinson said construction of an additional runway and international terminal will cost more than $800 million, making 2013 the largest single year of capital investment in the airport’s his-

tory. Paving of the runway is set to begin in earnest in mid-May and run until September. The shell of the new terminal, meanwhile, should be mostly complete by the end of the year but will require two more years of interior work before it opens, Atkinson said. The authority is also still in talks with the city about extending Airport Trail east to Metis Trail, and potentially relaxing the previous condition that the city first construct interchanges in the area. Ald. Jim Stevenson hopes that happens sooner rather than later, arguing it will make sense to connect the airport to the east once the southeast leg of Highway 201 opens this fall, giving motorists another major airport route other than Deerfoot Trail. Atkinson said the authority’s main concern about that remains the potential for opening up the route to non-airport traffic, but he’s willing to work with the city.

Calgary Airport Authority CEO Garth Atkinson speaks at the organization’s annual general meeting on Thursday. Robson Fletcher/Metro

Runway renumbered

Change due to shift in magnetic North Calgary International Airport plans to renumber its runways this year due to a change in the Earth’s magnetic field. As part of a natural process, the magnetic North Pole has been slowly drifting from where it was when the runways were built, said Larry Stock, general manager of the Springbank Airport, where runway numbers will also be changed. “Runways are numbered according to the magnetic heading,” Stock said. “Runway 34 in Calgary is numbered 34 because it about lines up with 340 degrees magnetic.” The slow drift of the magnetic pole means runway numbers need to be adjusted every 60 or 70 years, he added.

Roads. Calgary’s collision and casualty rates show decline over 10-year period Trends in collision data collected over the past 10 years show safety on Calgary roads is improving. Collision rates from 2002 to 2012 have decreased by 15 per cent over the past decade, with the casualty rate (collisions involving injuries or fatalities) dropping by 51 per cent. Joana Domarad, transportation safety specialist with the City of Calgary, says while it’s difficult to pinpoint the exact reasons why road safety has improved, she’s sure that certain practices have likely helped. “In terms of road safety, the city has been implementing countermeasures continuously through the years,” she said. From intersection upgrades to enhanced pedestrian and cyclist safety measures, Domarad says things have been getting better in the last decade. City statistics show that pedestrian injury and fatality rates have dropped by 36

per cent, and cycling injury and fatality rates have decreased by 42 per cent. “We’ve put together new policies and initiatives such as the cycling strategy and the complete streets guide,” she said. Domarad says it’s difficult to predict if the collision-rate data will continue to trend downwards in the years to come, but the city will keep monitoring them. “We do keep track of this data so the future will show where things will go, but we’re hoping (rates will keep declining).” katie turner/metro

This weekend, Youth Central will kick off Youth Week, a seven-day celebration that acknowledges the dedication of youth advocates and volunteers around the city. As someone who supports the event, I’d like nothing more than to write about how each and every one of Calgary’s youth is inspiring and respectful. But if you’ve ever been on a CTrain, you know that’s not necessarily true. Truthfully, like many adults, some kids are just jerks. Even though it’s been 12 years since I was a teenager, I still find many of them intimidating, and as we’ve seen in recent cases of cyber-bullying, they can be shockingly mean. Social

Far from a model youth

“When I was a kid, I was barely involved in my community. I spent many of my free hours deciding which character from Saved by the Bell I was most like.” media have forced these kids to become adults way before they’re emotionally capable of handling responsibility, thus throwing them into adulthood before they’ve even learned to drive. So for me, I need things like Youth Week to remind me that there are actually kids out there doing really cool things — things that are genuinely making this city better. They are doing things I never did as a kid and rarely do as an adult. They’re volunteering, they’re working with city council and they’re building better neighbourhoods, not just complaining on message boards. Impressively, they seem to be doing it

without an ulterior motive or publicist with a cameraman at the ready. I’m not writing this column on some sort of high horse or soapbox. Quite the opposite, actually. When I was a kid, I was barely involved in my community. I spent many of my free hours deciding which character from Saved by the Bell I was most like (Mr. Belding) and writing Boy Meets World fan fiction. I certainly wasn’t a contributing member of society, unlike some kids. Adults don’t make it easy to be a kid. We’re judgmental, we seemingly make up rules on the fly and quite often we make being an adult look horrible. There

are the grown-ups who still smoke, or the ones who use cellphones at the dinner table or behind the wheel, and we try to teach kids to love themselves for who they are, while we spend hundreds of dollars on clothes, makeup, hair products and footwear. It doesn’t seem like we’ve left them with much hope for growing up. So those who do persevere really should be recognized and appreciated more than they are. Like many events based around raising awareness, the point of Youth Week likely won’t stay with you after April, but the way we treat youth in Calgary, whether it’s tomorrow, next week or next year, that’s something that will resonate with them long after we’re living in our retirement communities.

City littering complaints plummet 46% Step up smokers. Bylaw officers say discarded cigarette butts remain a concern in downtown core Jeremy nolais

Stiffer fines and improved tally is 46 per cent below community pride are behind numbers for 2010, the first a steep drop in the number of full year of enforcing littering Calgary littering complaints, fines ranging from $500 for general violations all the way according to bylaw services. In 2012, 359 complaints up to $1,000 for tossing burnwere filed by citizens re- ing material — namely cigagarding improper disposing rettes — from a vehicle. “We are seeing people, of trash and seven fines were issued. But Abdul Rafih, a time and time again, reaching down and picking up garbage centre-city bylaw peace offiT:6.614” cer, points out that complaint that isn’t even necessarily

theirs,” Rafih said. Other initiatives, such as Mayor Naheed Nenshi’s 20-Minute Makeover and increased cigarette ash-disposing bins in the downtown core have helped, too, Rafih said. “The primary focus is education and voluntary compliance,” he added. But both bylaw officers and Calgary Downtown Asso-

ciation head Maggie Schofield said they’re still worried about discarded cigarettes, which do account for the vast majority of littering complaints. “(Cigarettes) end up in our waterways and our gutters and it costs the City of Calgary, it costs our cleanup people (and) the downtown building managers a lot,” Schofield said.

A former Alberta health CEO who signed off on private U.S. care for a colleague at taxpayer expense repaid the money Thursday — but Health Minister Fred Horne faced renewed calls for a broader probe into possible improper spending. Horne said there is no need for more investigation because there is no evidence of other mistakes by Sheila Weatherill. “Do I have any reason to believe there are payments similar to this? Absolutely not,” Horne told reporters after releasing to media the letter that accompanied the $7,800 cheque from Weatherill. Weatherill repaid the bill after the opposition Wildrose party made public Monday the bills from Michele Lahey’s trip to the Mayo Clinic in January 2007. At the time, Lahey was chief operating officer for the former Capital Health Region and Weatherill was the region’s CEO. Lahey went to the prestigious clinic to make sure that the treatment she had received

in Alberta had eradicated her cancer. The cost was $7,225. Opposition leaders say they’re being stymied trying to get Weatherill’s expenses released under freedom of information legislation and say it’s time Horne cleared the air. “How about a forensic audit into all the expenses of the health regions going back to the (Allaudin) Merali era?” Wildrose leader Danielle Smith asked the house. Horne said anyone who wants that information can get it under the freedom of information rules. But he said he can’t help with that. “I’m not the party that makes a determination about the release of information under that (freedom of information) act,” said Horne. NDP Leader Brian Mason labelled the answer weak. “That act is to get information that the government wants to give,” replied NDP Leader Brian Mason. “It doesn’t prevent the government from giving it.” THE CANADIAN PRESS

Trial. Confession of accused newborn killer should be allowed: Crown A prosecutor says a woman accused of killing two of her newborns was fully aware of the possible consequences of a video confession and it should be accepted at her trial. Crown lawyer Jayme Williams wants the court to rule that two taped police interviews with Meredith Borowiec, 31, may be admitted as evidence. “Both of the statements taken by the Calgary Police Service were in fact voluntary,” Williams argued Thursday in her submission to Queen’s Bench Justice Peter McIntyre.

“The fact they are video recordings allows the court to look at the demeanour of both the police and the accused,” she said. “There’s nothing to suggest the accused was mentally unable to answer questions. She is coherent throughout,” Williams added. Borowiec is charged with second-degree murder in the deaths of two newborns in 2008 and 2009. She was charged just over a year after a third child was found alive in a Dumpster in October 2010, which prompted a lengthy police investigation. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Creative Calgarians will have the chance to construct pedal-powered pieces through an upcoming workshop that aims to turn broken bikes into practical works of art. The Pedal Powered Contraption Workshop is one of several workshops being held in advance of Beakerhead — a five-day, citywide celebration that will mesh arts and engineering togeth-

Awareness initiative

Lung recipient helping launch fund for patients Lung transplant recipient Hélène Campbell is trying to raise awareness of a fund that helps patients with the costs of waiting for a donor. Launching on April 22, the Transplant Patient and Family Support Fund is the result of a partnership of the Toronto General, Western Hospital Foundation and the Multi Organ Transplant Program, said Campbell. “Basically there are a lot of out-of-pocket costs

for transplant patients and their families during the tissue and organ donation experience and the minimum is $10,000,” she said, adding that transplant patients must live within two hours from Toronto. “Not everyone is as fortunate as I am with the amount of support I had. And I know even though we had that much support it was still stressful with out-of-pocket costs that you don’t think you would need, like oxygen, or the medication, transportation.” She said she is hoping to raise enough money for 30 families in the first two months.

Modelling agencies have been trying to recruit Sweden’s next top catwalk talent at the country’s largest eating-disorder clinic in Stockholm, its doctors have claimed. “We find this absolutely reprehensible. They (talent scouts) have been standing outside our clinic and trying to pick up our girls because they know that they are skinny,” Anna-Maria af Sandeberg, chief doctor at the Stockholm Center for Eating Disorders, told Metro recently. “It absolutely sends the wrong signals when what the girls need is treatment,” she added.

ous,” DesLauriers said, asking the public not to approach the men. He said there is no additional danger that the FBI knows of at the moment. Monday’s blasts killed three and injured more than 180 others. The images came out hours after U.S. President Barack Obama promised a grieving city to hunt down whoever was responsible. The images show two young-looking men wearing baseball caps, wearing jackets and carrying backpacks along the race route and weaving through the crowd. The planting of the backpack is not depicted in the video footage that was made public. The FBI would not discuss the men’s ethnicity. At an interfaith service honouring the victims, Obama called the perpetrators of the attack “small, stunted individuals who would destroy instead of build.” The Associated Press Attorney’s office says the officer was responding to a report of a disturbance when he was shot multiple times. His name was not immediately released. State police spokesman Dave Procopio says the shooting took place about 10:30 p.m. local time outside an MIT building. Procopio says authorities are searching for a suspect or suspects. No arrests have been made. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

War trial. Bosnian-Serb Shootings in Manolada leader may testify on ‘inhuman, unprecedented’ conspirator’s behalf Greece. Three suspects remain at large after 29 Bangladeshi labourers shot at strawberry plantation Greek officials promised “swift and exemplary” punishment for three strawberry-plantation foremen on Thursday, who allegedly shot and injured 29 Bangladeshi labourers protesting late pay. Police are seeking the three suspects who disappeared after Wednesday’s shootings, which occurred during a confrontation with some 200 Bangladeshi farm workers in the country’s rural south who say they have not been paid for half a year. Seven Bangladeshi workers were still receiving treatment in local hospitals, but none has life-threatening injuries. Government spokesman Simos Kedikoglou condemned the “inhuman, unprecedented and shameful” shootings near the village of Manolada in the southern Peloponnese region. The plastic-topped greenhouses that cover Manolada’s broad plains account for most of Greece’s strawberry output, using cheap labour by Asian immigrants often housed in primitive conditions. There have been several attacks on migrant strawberry workers in recent years, but Wednesday’s was the worst so far.

“The barbarous attack ... conjures up images of a slaverybased South that have no place in our country,” Justice Minister Antonis Roupakiotis said. Political parties and trade unions expressed shock and about 100 people took part in a protest by labour groups outside the labour ministry in Athens. “Before the shootings, there was an altercation between the foreign workers and the three foremen over six months’ outstanding wages,” police spokesman Christos Parthenis said. “After that, the three fugitives left the spot, and returned shortly later holding two shotguns and a handgun, and

opened fire on the crowd.” Police found five used shotgun cartridges at the spot. Authorities have arrested the owner of the farm, which is about 260 kilometres southwest of Athens. On Thursday, they also arrested a local man on suspicion of hiding the three fugitives. The labour minister ordered an urgent inspection of work conditions at the Manolada strawberry farms. But the country’s main labour union, GSEE, accused the government of failing to properly investigate conditions at Manolada, which it likened to a modern form of slavery. the associated press

Analysis

The two alleged chief architects of Serb atrocities committed during the 1992-95 Bosnian war could meet in a United Nations courtroom for the first time, if one of them gets his wish. Former Bosnian-Serb leader Radovan Karadzic sought a subpoena Thursday to compel his one-time military chief, Gen. Ratko Mladic, to testify in his defence during his genocide trial at the Yugoslav war-crimes tribunal. Although the two BosnianSerb wartime strongmen are on good terms in the UN detention unit where they are both being held during their separate trials, Mladic’s lawyers argue that the former BosnianSerb army commander has the right to remain silent in Karadzic’s case because it is so closely interwoven with Mladic’s own trial. In a letter to Karadzic’s law-

yer, Mladic’s legal team says a suspect has “the protected right to remain silent and not testify or be forced to testify so as to potentially incriminate himself” and that the right extends to Mladic not having to appear as a witness in Karadzic’s trial. the associated press

Economic crisis fuelling Poland. Warsaw-uprising survivor recalls hardships turmoil Greece is caught in its worst financial crisis in decades, and is surviving on international rescue loans granted in exchange for harsh austerity measures. It is in the sixth year of a deep recession, with unemployment at a record 27 per cent. The economic pain, coupled with waves of illegal immigration in recent years, has fuelled a rise in anti-immigrant sentiment that swept members of an extreme far-right party into Parliament last year. Golden Dawn, which holds 18 of the house’s 300 seats, is currently polling third in opinion surveys, at about 10 per cent. The party denies accusations from most mainstream opponents that it is neo-Nazi, although its website brims with Nazi literature and references. The party issued a statement Thursday condemning the Manolada shootings. It then added: “We also condemn those who illegally employ illegal immigrants, taking the bread away from thousands of Greek families.” “All illegal immigrants must be immediately deported,” it said. the associated press

Many decades since the events, Jakub Gutenbaum still squirms at the thought of scalding-hot walls in the basement he was hiding in during the Warsaw ghetto uprising, as houses overhead were on fire. Talking to The Associated Press on Thursday, the 83-yearold Gutenbaum recalls how German troops came into his hiding place and forced everyone out at gunpoint. Gutenbaum, his mother and little brother, lived through the horror of the uprising, an against-all-odds-revolt by hundreds of lightly armed Jewish fighters against a much larger Nazi force that broke out 70 years ago on Friday. Gutenbaum will be among

Published photos slighted nation, say court and security agency A court in Belarus has branded a book of news photographs “extremist,” agreeing with the state security agency that the book set out to humiliate the country. The work consists of photos taken in 2010 that won prizes in the 2011 Belarus Press Photo com-

Some of the photos were made by photographers working for international news agencies, including The Associated Press, Reuters and AFP. The security agency, which is still called the KGB, said the photos were selected to “humiliate national honour and dignity.” the associated press

After months of quiet, a U.S. State Department report has cleared the way for a final decision on the plan by Calgary-based TransCanada. Opponents are now focused on the new U.S. secretary of state, John Kerry, who will make a recommendation to U.S. President Barack Obama on whether to green-light the project.

A former justice of the peace has been charged with murder in the slayings of a Texas district attorney and his assistant, who had prosecuted him for theft, officials announced Thursday. Eric Lyle Williams, 46, was charged in the shooting deaths of Kaufman County District Attorney Mike McLelland and his wife, Cynthia, last month, and assistant prosecutor Mark Hasse in January. Williams is being held on $23 million US bond. Williams has been jailed since he was arrested Saturday and charged with making a terroristic threat for allegedly emailing an anonymous threat to law officers one day after the McLellands were found dead.

They also wrapped a sevenmonth boy in a blanket and put him in a plastic container to silence him.

away from the town about 32 kilometres north of Waco. Waco police Sgt. William Patrick Swanton described ongoing search-and-rescue efforts as “tedious and timeconsuming,” noting that crews had to shore up much of the wreckage before going in. Searchers “have not gotten to the point of no return where they don’t think that there’s anybody still alive,” Swanton said. He did not know how many people had been rescued. There was no indication the blast, which sent up a mushroom-shaped plume of smoke and left behind a crater, was anything other than an industrial accident, he said. The Wednesday night explosion rained burning embers and debris down on terrified residents. The landscape was wrapped in acrid smoke and strewn with the shattered remains of buildings, furniture and personal belongings. The Associated Press

Cops worry about vigilante justice after Nova Scotia teen’s suicide The RCMP say they’re concerned that posters that have appeared on Halifax streets in support of four boys accused of sexually assaulting Rehtaeh Parsons,17, could incite vigilante behaviour against the teens. The brightly coloured posters bear the words, “Speak the Truth” in large, bold print and urge people to support the boys, though it does not identify them. “There’s two sides to every story,” the posters read. “Listen before you JUDGE.” RCMP Cpl. Scott MacRae said Thursday the posters don’t break any laws, but police say they have received a number of complaints about them. The Nova Scotia girl’s family said she hanged herself last week after she was sexually assaulted by four boys and a photo of the alleged incident was distributed online.

“gross mismanagement” levelled against Shirish Chotalia in a report released Thursday by the public-sector integrity commissioner. Mario Dion’s two-year investigation concluded that Chotalia’s behaviour toward some employees and members of the tribunal constituted harassment and abuse of authority. The report casts Chotalia as a tyrant who belittled and insulted her staff to the point of tears. She spied on her staff and kept a secret file on one employee, the report said, even though that person had never been told of any problems. Her aggressive interrogations of some staff caused “severe anxiety.” the canadian press

Trudeau. New Liberal leader inaccurately attacked by PQ in Quebec Justin Trudeau made his first visit to meet Quebec politicians on Thursday and it was Trudeau 1, Parti Québécois zero at the end of the day. The PQ couldn’t wait to confront its latest nemesis, the first-born son of old foe Pierre Elliott Trudeau. But its attack Thursday turned out to be a real clunker. A provincial PQ cabinet minister Jean-Francois Lisee, delivered a lengthy denunciation at a news conference where he accused Trudeau of behaving like some “young prince” because, he alleged, Trudeau had “demanded” to

meet the leaders of all parties at the same time. However, it turns out that information was wrong. People from various quarters, including the Quebec premier’s office, disputed the basis for the attack. “It was a communication error. And that error was transmitted to Mr. Lisee and Mr. Lisee ‘scrummed’ on bad information,” said a spokesman for Quebec’s PQ Premier Pauline Marois. “The request was to meet the three leaders — but individually.”

Tinderbox: Koreas

Top U.S. general to visit South Korea on Sunday The top U.S. military officer, Gen. Martin Dempsey, is adding a South Korea stop to his previously announced trip to China to meet face to face with his South Korean counterpart on the North Korea situation.

Dempsey and his counterpart, Gen. Jung Seung-jo, held a video teleconference Thursday and reaffirmed their nation’s security alliance. On his South Korea visit Sunday, Dempsey will also meet with the senior U.S. commander there, Gen. James Thurman. Thurman and the chief of the South Korean military both cancelled plans to go to Washington this week due to the heightened

tensions with North Korea. Thurman was supposed to testify before Congress. A spokesman for Dempsey, Col. David Lapan, said Dempsey added the South Korea stop in order to discuss North Korea and other topics. There have been heightened tensions in the area in recent weeks as North Korea flexed its military muscle and missile ambitions. the associated press

Two planets found: could support life? Planetary duo. Just 1,200 light years away, NASA telescope finds two planets — the ‘best candidates’ for being habitable NASA’s planet-hunting telescope has discovered two planets that seem like ideal places for some sort of life to flourish. And they are just the right size and in just the right place. One is warm, the other chilly. The distant duo are the best candidates for habitable

planets that astronomers have found so far, said William Borucki, the chief scientist for NASA’s Kepler telescope. And it has got astronomers thinking that similar planets that are just about right for life — “Goldilocks planets” — might be common in the universe. The discoveries, published online Thursday in the journal Science, mark a milestone in the search for planets where life could exist. In the four years that Kepler has been trailing Earth’s orbit, the telescope has found 122 exoplanets — planets outside our solar system. In the past, those planets haven’t fit all the criteria that would make them right for

life of any kind from microbes to man. Many planets aren’t in the habitable zone — where it’s not too hot and not too cold for liquid water. And until now, the few found in that ideal zone were just too big. Those are likely to be gas balls like Neptune, and that’s not suitable for life. Similarly, any Earth-size planets weren’t in the right place near their stars, Borucki said. In the Goldilocks game of looking for other planets like ours, the new discoveries, called planet Kepler-62-e and Kepler-62-f are just right. And in the habitable zone. the associated press

You meet someone, there’s chemistry, and then come the introductory questions: What’s your name? Come here often? Are you my cousin? In Iceland, a country with a population of 320,000 where most everyone is distantly related, inadvertently kissing cousins is a real risk. A new smartphone app is on hand to help Icelanders avoid accidental incest. The app lets users “bump” phones, and emits a warning alarm if they are closely related. “Bump the app before you bump in bed,” says the catchy slogan. Some are hailing it as a welcome solution to a very Icelandic form of social embarrassment. “Everyone has heard the story of going to a family event and running into a girl you hooked up with some time

Food bugs: Report shows campylobacter is on the rise U.S. health officials are seeing more food poisonings caused by a bacteria commonly linked to raw milk and poultry. A study released Thursday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said campylobacter cases grew by 14 per cent over the last five years. The report was based on foodborne infections in 10 states, and found that overall, food poisonings held fairly steady in recent years. There were no significant jumps in cases from most other food bugs, including salmonella — shown above in a petri dish — and E. coli. But campylobacter rose, and last year accounted for more than a third of food-poisoning illnesses in those states and about one-tenth of the deaths. CDC/The associated Press

Canadian shops stay bullish on cupcakes despite U.S. downturn Anything but halfbaked. Local goods still go down a treat jessica smith

Metro in Toronto

Don’t worry, the great cupcake crash of 2013 hasn’t hit Canada. Prominent bakers say our cupcake industry is better structured than its U.S. counterpart and will withstand the “cupcake crisis” going on south of the border. “Forget gold, the gourmet-cupcake market is crashing,” The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) declared Wednesday, in an article that chronicled the rise and fall of the Crumbs Bake Shop Inc. stock price. At the peak of the U.S. cupcake boom in mid-2011, Crumbs traded at $13 a share, the Journal reported. With 67 cupcake shops, Crumbs locations have nearly doubled in the last two years. As of Wednesday, it was $1.70 after a precipitous drop of 34 per cent on Friday, in the wake of Crumbs’ announcement of falling

sales. The analysts weighed in. The problems are not confined to Crumbs, but reflect sector-wide decline. “The novelty has worn off,” Kevin Burke, managing partner of investment banking firm Trinity Capital LLC, told WSJ. “It’s a short-term trend and we’re starting to see a real saturation,” Darren Tristano, executive vicepresident at Technomic Inc., a Chicago research and consulting firm that specializes in the food industry, told WSJ. “Demand is flat. And quite frankly, people can bake cupcakes.” None of that fazes cupcake baker and owner of Toronto’s Dlish shop, Verge Manuel. “I think the U.S. market is different than what you see in Canada,” he said. “They’re suffering from over-saturation — chain upon chain, selling franchises to anyone who can put up the money.” Business is booming for Dlish, which recently opened up a second location in Toronto’s tony Yorkville neighbourhood, to complement its Queen West flagship cupcake shop. Manuel plans to open up a third

scale and gentrifying neighbourhoods, so the idea that cupcakes in general will go down-market when chains expand into malls is a real concern, he said. Jean Blacklock, owner of Prairie Girl Bakery, is planning to open her third shop this week. She already has a store in Toronto’s First Canadian Place and said malls are now attracting high-end retailers, and gourmet cupcakes belong there. Blacklock is very familiar with Crumbs and believes the company’s stock price is only a reflection of the

location by the end of 2013. Despite getting many offers from people wanting to buy a Dlish franchise, Manuel has resisted that fast money to keep quality high by making sure any Dlish cupcake shop remains under his control. “You have to ask yourself, do you want to become the McDonald’s of cupcakes?” he said. “Our philosophy is freshly baked on-site cupcakes.” While Crumbs is seeking to expand to suburban malls, Canadian gourmet cupcake shops have been generally confined to up-

We need to tell our girls that they are at risk when they drink. We need to tell them that their peers will take advantage of them, mock them, ostracize them, and, yes, even rape them. We need to teach them to stand up to what is ahead and that even their friends will hurt, crush, humiliate, and even rape them. I think we need to teach boys more about consent, responsibility, respect, and healthy sexual relationships. They need to be informed that a conversation should come before sex. They need to know that women live years in shame and guilt when they rape them. Doreen Coady, Enfield, N.S.

RICHARD CROUSE AND MARK BRESLIN

Olga Kurylenko and Tom Cruise star in Oblivion.

HANDOUT

Just another pretty film Oblivion. Tom Cruise’s new post-apocalyptic thriller is all style with very little substance Richard: Liz, this is one stylish movie. Every frame could be clipped and hung on the wall to garner oohs and ahhs from your house guests. Everything about it looks great. Morgan Freeman even wears a jaunty cape. But, I’m afraid the style took precedence over the substance. There is much to like here, but for me the story starts to go slightly out of orbit in the last hour and never quite becomes earthbound again.

What did you think? Liz: Richard, I agree. The sights from Jack and Vika’s fabulous tower in the sky ... the sweeping aerial scenes ... and don’t get me started on Jack’s secret mountain hideaway where he listens to Zeppelin on vinyl — the stunning visuals made me crave life in a post-apocalyptic world. The wild tale was fun, until it turned into a renegade Armageddon. I don’t know if Joseph Kosinski ran out of ideas as he wrote, but the last half feels a bit hastily cobbled together. RC: It does. I won’t give away any spoilers from the last half because the plot

thickens near the end, but it still manages to be kind of standard. Of course there is a scene of Cruise outrunning a giant fireball, and does everyone in post apocalyptic worlds listen to classic rock? But, having said that, I liked a lot of this. This is the kind of movie Tom Cruise was born to star in, the sort of thing that made him a superstar. What did you think of costar Olga Kurylenko? LB: Olga’s Bond Girl cred makes her the perfect counterpoint to Cruise’s action hero swagger — his comfort in these types of roles is palpable and you can just sit back and enjoy the ride. After

a few flops last year, Tom is back in my good books! RC: Nobody outruns a fireball quite like Cruise and I thought Riseborough brought a lot of humanity to a character who isn’t required to do much. A lot of the heavy lifting is left to Olga’s character, and while she’s beautiful, I’m afraid she has the range of an emoticon. She does much better work in To the Wonder. LB: Riseborough was great in her role — though her character’s refusal to question the status quo irked me. I like my ladies a little stronger. This is no Minority Report, but it’s a fun futuristic adventure fronted by Tom Cruise.

SCENE

Tom Cruise plays Jack Harper, a security and drone maintenance man on planet Earth 60 years after a war with the alien Scavs destroyed all life on the planet. Nearing the end of his mission, he and girlfriend Victoria (Andrea Riseborough) are due to return to home base, now located in outer space. Thing is, Jack doesn’t want to leave. He has memory jolts, shards of recollections of the life he led before the war and he wants to stay and explore them. When he discovers a survivor, Julia (Olga Kurylenko), he begins to question everything about his existence. Liz Brown sits in for Mark Breslin.

chainsaw in human hair as he tries to decapitate a corpse. Aside from a few creative liberties, everything in Pain & Gain did happen in Miami in the mid-90s, when a couple of bumbling bodybuilders came up with a get-rich quick scheme that involved kidnapping, extortion and eventually murder. The real-life criminals — Daniel Lugo and Noel Doorbal — now sit on Florida’s death row. Bay pulled the story from a three-part crime series by Pete Collins that was published in the Miami New Times in 1999. The series outlines the missteps Lugo and Doorbal took, from trying to return a bloodied chainsaw to Home Depot, to failing to ensure one of their intended victims was actually dead — after they blew him up in a

car and then ran him over twice. It’s hard to deny the story is darkly funny, something seemingly pulled from the brain of Quentin Tarantino, with torture scenes in warehouses filled with sex toys. But the fact that it’s been turned into a crime comedy doesn’t sit well with some people — including one of the victims, Marc Schiller, who last week told the Huffington Post he was “appalled” at the film. But Bay was expecting mixed reactions to the movie. “I want people to be conflicted (when they see this film),” he says. “I want to show a lot of grey areas. When you return a chainsaw that you’re trying to cut a body up with — with hair in it — to Home Depot, to get a bigger chain-

saw, you don’t think that’s kind of funny? It’s not your cookie cutter movie.” It’s smart storytelling, according to Johnson, who plays a character that was a composite of two real men who played lesser roles in the crimes. “In the beginning you want to go on the journey with these guys; they’re kind of likeable, but at the end, all that gets thrown out the window and you’re happy and satisfied that they get punished,” he says. Bay hopes that the movie shows crime from the perspective of the criminal. “(Criminals) sometimes think they’re not doing something morally bad, or they think they deserve (what they’re stealing). You really go into a criminal’s mind (with this movie).”

Kevin Zegers tries out life in The Colony While filming The Colony, Kevin Zegers forged a friendship with renowned actor Laurence Fishburne over a rather unique common bond. “He started (in the film industry) when he was really young too, so without being pushy, he was very open to talk about how he dealt with it all,” said the one-time child star (now 28) during a recent interview. “I still hear from him all the time.” Zegers has of course matured from earlier days playing opposite a basketball-dunking dog in 1997’s Air Bud. In fact, the young talent is more recognized these days for his acclaimed work in such awardwinning films as Transamerica and his stint on TV’s Gossip Girl. In The Colony however, Zegers has atypically turned to

On Zegers’ to-do list

“I would love to work with Darren Aronofsky,” said Zegers of the Black Swan filmmaker. “I like people who are not gentle, especially filmmakers … actors always have more than they like to give and he sort of knows that.” The Colony, starring Kevin Zegers, opens next Friday. handout

sci-fi action, playing opposite Fishburne in the apocalyptic thriller. Set during a futuristic ice age, Zegers leads an outpost struggling to survive against an onslaught of virus and a maniacal mob. “That was kind of the draw for me going into it,” said Zegers of the uncharacteris-

tic role. “I just finished a sixmonth period drama thing and I kind of wanted some fun and (to) run around and kick some ass and this thing came. Especially with Laurence and Bill (Paxton) already attached, I thought they had sent it to the wrong person.” As unexpected as the part

may be for fans of Zegers however, the choice is at least in line with the actor’s own career goals. “I try not to make bad movies. (Acting is) what I do for a living but I also feel like I’m a fan and so if I’m going to make a movie like this, I want to make a good movie like this,” admitted Zegers. “That’s kind of the only barometer that I have.” steve gow, metro

How to fall Upside Down in love Tale of two worlds. Kirsten Dunst and Jim Sturgess talk about romantic times on neighbouring planets Ned Ehrbar

Metro World News in Hollywood

Kirsten Dunst and Jim Sturgess star as lovers literally from different worlds in Juan Solanas’ mind-bending Upside Down, in which two neighbouring planets share an atmosphere but have opposing gravities. The premise makes for some dramatic class distinctions as well as impressive visuals and stunts. And admittedly, it took some time for the actors to wrap their heads around it. I have to say, this is probably one of the most interesting high-concept concepts I’ve seen for a love story. When people ask you about it, how do you explain it to them? Jim Sturgess: Yeah, just that, that it is a very classic love story in itself, at the heart of it. That it is just about forbidden love, which is a story that we’re all familiar with, but just set in a completely unique kind of amazing, fantastical world. And when they ask about things like the different gravities? Kirsten Dunst: Well, I mean, you have to suspend some

belief and have a childlike mind almost while watching it, in a way, I think. I think if you start to become cynical about, “Well that wouldn’t happen in science,” well guess what? We’re making a fantasy film, you know what I mean? And it’s very romantic, and a lot of things are explained, but then you have to kind of extend your imagination. It’s a fantasy movie, so... And did it take any time to wrap your own heads around as you were getting ready to film it? JS: It did in the beginning. Just from reading the script it did. It was hard when it was all just words on a page, you had no visual reference so you had to conjure up your own ideas of what the worlds look like. And then Juan was amazing in that he sent us some graphic designs of how the worlds worked. It really wasn’t until that point when I saw it visually and saw it through Juan’s eyes that I understood what the film was and what he was trying to make. Because yeah, you have to build those worlds up in your mind just from words on a page, so it’s a totally different experience to when you watch the film, where it’s all just sort of given to you. There’s also such an impressive sense of style in the movie, in the design and in your costumes. Is there

anything either of you took away from it for your own personal style? KD: I actually kept some of my clothes. But Juan’s wife, Paula (Moore), she did all my wardrobe for the movie. So it’s just like Frenchy ... like a hippie vibe, but very expensive cashmere draped around me all the time. Up top! I got style up top. JS: They made me the sort of jacket that I wore. They tailored that, so I stole that for sure. And I stole my ground zero grey lab coat with my name tag, so I still have that in my ward-

No tells the true story of how a mainstream ad-man (Gael Garcia Bernal) helped design the political campaign that brought down Chilean despot Augusto Pinochet. By turning dour directives about dictatorship into fizzy, jingleenhanced commercials preaching “happiness,” No is both eye-opening and oddly humorous. Although filmmaker Pablo Larrain’s use of vintage low-quality cameras and actual footage may jar moviegoers, the device ultimately accomplishes much more than nostalgic kitsch. Steve gow

Man of Steel director promises Superman reboot will have poignancy along with the action scenes everyone is looking for Zack Snyder is hoping his Superman reboot Man of Steel turns out to be not just a blockbuster, but a movie with a capital M. There are panoramic aerial battles on Krypton, there are touching moments between young Clark Kent and both his biological and adoptive fathers, there are close-ups of a fist pounding into ice, and there is lots of big-budget flying. “I wanted the movie to be a big movie-going experience, full of action, full of emotion and full of the biggest super hero in the world,” Snyder said Tuesday before giving the Las Vegas movie theatre convention CinemaCon a brief glimpse. “I wanted to give to the cinemas of the world a big, giant ‘movie’ movie.” The film follows in the modern tradition of the naturalistic superhero movies.

The Will Smith Timeline

Will and Jaden Smith are not only the stars of After Earth, the upcoming sci-fi adventure film, they’re also Metro’s special guests on Monday. The father and son sit down for an intimate and exclusive Q&A with Metro to discuss the Earth’s future and what impact we’re having on the environment. In the meantime, here’s a look at our future, as seen through the movie camera lens.

1968

On Sept. 25, Willard Christopher “Will” Smith was born in, as you know from the Fresh Prince theme song, West Philadelphia.

Richard Crouse scene@metronews.ca

Idiocracy

all photos contributed

Idiocracy takes place in a world ruled by advertising and commercialism, where the average IQ has dropped into the low 20s. Private Joe Bauers (Luke Wilson), an average American frozen for 500 years as part of an experiment, is thawed and released into the year 2505. The world has changed, and now he’s the smartest man on Earth. Best future Earth quote? “I’m Secretary of State, brought to you by Carl’s Jr.”

1980s

With pal Jeffrey Allen Townes, a.k.a DJ Jazzy Jeff, Smith created feel-good rap songs like Parents Just Don’t Understand and Summertime. And in…

1988

…they won the first-ever Rap Grammy. In…

1990

…his rap fame landed him a starring role on a sitcom, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.

Children of Men Children of Men takes place in 2027 after 20 years of human infertility has left society on the brink of collapse. Clive Owen plays a civil servant who helps a pregnant West African refugee (Clare-Hope Ashitey) escape the chaos and possibly save the world. Best future Earth quote: “Your baby is the miracle the whole world has been waiting for.”

best future Earth flicks

1993

His first major film role, Six Degrees of Separation, was based on the play about a con artist (Smith) who poses as Sidney Poitier’s son. The role got him acting cred. But it was in…

1995

…that he became a movie star, appearing opposite Martin Lawrence as one half of Bad Boys. The film grossed $141 million worldwide.

1996-97

Then came the real hits: Independence Day cemented his status as a blockbuster draw, and Men in Black proved Will + sci-fi = billions.

Americathon Silent Running

In WALL-E, set in the year 2700, Earth is now a dystopian world rendered uninhabitable by wasteful and excessive humans who exited the planet centuries ago. A waste removal robot named WALL-E lives alone, until a search robot named EVE changes his life. Best future Earth quote: “Too much garbage in your face? There’s plenty of space out in space!”

Silent Running is the story of a man (Bruce Dern) who tends all that is left of Earth’s plant life in large interplanetary greenhouses. When he is ordered to destroy the foliage and return to Earth, he takes another deadly, but more eco-friendly, path. Best future Earth quote: “On Earth, everywhere you go, the temperature is 75 degrees. Everything is the same; all the people are exactly the same. Now what kind of life is that?”

1997

Smith marries actress Jada Pinkett, his best co-star since Tommy Lee Jones.

The Smiths — Will, Jada, Jaden, Willow — are a powerhouse. They rap, act, direct, produce and write.

To pay off a $400 million debt, the president tries many things, including filling the Statue of Liberty with jellybeans for a “guess how many” contest before staging a wild telethon. Best future Earth quote: “Everyone all across the country was watching the telethon. From what was left of New York, to the first all-gay state, North Dakota. All eyes were glued to their sets.”

You go into a lot of detail about the pain in your past, especially your turbulent childhood in Kentucky. What was that like? It was difficult and therapeutic. I visited some places that I’d put in the back of my mind, locked the door and thrown away the key. They were things that hurt just a bit to go back to. But what I learned was reliving those moments prepares you to move on for the future. How is writing a book different than writing songs? Songs come to me very quickly, usually in a moment of inspiration colliding with desperation. The book was a long pro-

A different kind of writing

cess of homework, diligence and getting the facts right. I had to sit and think of it a whole lot more. You know an interview can’t happen without us asking about Miley. What kind of advice have you given her about the business? A lot of the advice I gave was advice my dad gave to me, like, “If you ain’t happy, it

ain’t workin.’” What’s up next for you? I’ve written a TV pilot. I still love film, I love acting and I’ve written a new album. I’ve been writing songs as I wrote the book — it’s been an infinite source of emotions and I’ve been able to translate it into music. No sense in slowing down — I love what I’m doing.

After the spectacular success of his Christmas album — eight times platinum in Canada, thrice in the U.S., a Juno Award win for album of the year — Michael Bublé might have felt a certain pressure in trying to create a follow-up, the sleigh bells ringing in his ear turning gradually deafening. Instead, he says he went into To Be Loved — out Tuesday — feeling more blithely self-assured than he’d ever been in the past, committing to a breezy live-off-the-floor recording strategy and declining to polish away the resultant small blemishes in his production. He had the most fun he’s had recording an album, he says. And the principal reason he was so unfettered? He says that the news that his wife, Argentine model Luisana Lopilato, was expecting their first child made everything else seem a little less pressing. “I think the whole lack of trying (to top Christmas) came from me finding out I was having a baby — I think when that happened, it made me very brave,” Bublé said during a recent chat in Toronto. “The truth is, really, my

Michael Bublé says his impending fatherhood has already given him a strength and confidence that can be heard on his upcoming new album, To Be Loved. Michelle Siu/the canadian press

priorities just flip-flopped, and I went: ‘What’s important to me? My wife’s health. My baby’s health. My family. And then this record.’ If people love it, that’s awesome. If they don’t love it? You know what, I’ve done pretty well. “Not that I didn’t care, because of course I care, but I wasn’t insecure.” Bublé, of course, has been provided plenty of reasons for such validation within the industry. It’s clear he’s not immune from the influence of naysayers, whether imagined or not — when discussing the Junos, he calls it a “thankless job” because “no matter how good I do, or how funny it is, there will be people that just can’t stand me” — but the slights

He’s so cool

“I’m doing something that maybe isn’t as commercially accessible but is really cool.” Michael Bublé Talking about the road to success he has taken

seem to weigh less on Bublé now than they did at a more diffident stage of his development. For instance, when asked about the dearth of similarminded crooners operating on such a large scale, he disagrees and points out that for a long time he felt he was in close competition with other artists intent on cruising

down the same lane. “When I started, I remember looking at (manager) Bruce Allen and saying: ‘Bruce, man, we’re in trouble here. We’ve got (Harry) Connick, we’ve got Jamie Cullum, we’ve got Matt Dusk, we’ve got Peter Cincotti — I’m going to get buried here.’ He used to say, ‘You’ll be the last man standing, kid.’” So why has Bublé succeeded to an extent that others haven’t? “Maybe I’m not following everybody else. I’m not doing the same thing everybody else does. I’m not just writing a song and having the rapper rap a thing over it. I’m doing something that maybe isn’t as commercially accessible but is really cool,” he said. The canadian Press

Forget sparkly vampires, this show’s got bite Hemlock Grove. There may be werewolves involved, but don’t expect any syrupy Twilight fare There are certain expectations when horror master Eli Roth puts his name on a project. Chief among them: gore. But that’s not what his new series Hemlock Grove is about, says star Famke Janssen, nevertheless admitting the vampireand-werewolf tale does its best to push the envelope in its own way. Executive-produced by Hostel writer-director Roth, the Netflix series is kicking up buzz online with a gruesome trailer that clearly sets it apart from

syrupy Twilight fare while staking claim to a more adult-oriented look at high school angst. “I never would have signed up had it become a full horror show,” says Janssen, best

known for playing Jean Grey in the X-Men movies. “If it constantly was trying to push the buttons in the gore department it’s just not that interesting to me. We’ve seen it, especially when it comes to the vampire-werewolf genre. We’ve seen plenty of it.” Janssen says she was drawn to off-kilter characters and their pained interactions. The supernatural drama debuts Friday when Netflix releases all 13 episodes at once on its online streaming service. Each hour-long episode revolves around the residents of a former Pennsylvania steel town reeling from the brutal killing of 17-year-old Brook Bluebell. And any of Hemlock’s peculiar inhabitants could be the culprit. THE CANADIAN PRESS

It’s also no surprise that CHICAGO has wowed audiences all around the world, from Mexico City to Moscow, from Sao Paulo to South Africa.” “Whether you’ve seen the Academy Award-winning film and want to experience the show live on stage or whether you’ve seen it before and want to recapture the magic, CHICAGO always delivers.”

“CHICAGO” is one of the most noted and longest running musicals on Broadway. Loosely based on a murder case in the 1920s that grabbed the attention of the media, it is a satirical look at the way society turns criminals into celebrities. Those criminals are Velma Kelly and Roxie Hart who stand accused of murdering their respective lovers. They are immediately vaulted into the spotlight by the media aided by their somewhat less than ethical lawyer and PR machine, Billy Flynn. When they are eventually acquitted of the crimes the press ends their love affair with the girls leaving them alone and penniless.

Series explores life after prison fit on the Sundance Channel — it’s languid, with dappled sunlight, long silences and a meditative quality. How will it be received, in an era of cliffhangers, hooks and bingeviewing? “There is a bit of a ‘did he do it, did he not do it,’ that’s an ongoing ‘what’s gonna happen?’ But ultimately, that’s not what the show is about. The show is about private lives. And as a viewer, I become very empathic because I really care about everybody,” says Spencer. “And it’s timely,” she adds, mentioning the West Memphis Three case. “People are spending their lives in prison and then getting off because of DNA. So it’s foreign and yet it’s known.” Spencer was a natural fit for the sister Amantha — she grew up partly in the Redneck Riveria of northern Florida.

Rectify. The Sundance Channel show looks at what happens after you’re set free michael freidson

Metro World News in London

Thanks to advances in CSI-like technology, more convicts are being released from prison early, exonerated by DNA evidence. “I’m glad to be free,” they usually say, “and start my new life.” And then what? How do they ease back into a world that has left them behind? That’s the premise of the new Sundance Channel series Rectify, from a producer of Breaking Bad. Daniel Holden (Aden Young), convicted of raping and murdering his teenage girlfriend, is freed 19 years later, left in the care of his sister (Abigail Spencer) and worried mom (J. Smith Cameron). Meanwhile, a Senator fights to prove he’s guilty. Outside, Daniel is as trapped as in. The series was shot on location in Georgia — in a real house, among locals. Creator Ray McKinnon was inspired to do for the South what Scorsese did for New York. “I’m not from New York,” says the writer/director, best known as an actor on Deadwood and Sons of Anarchy, “but I knew something about ‘Mean Streets’ was authen-

from a Deliverance caricature. “These are complex people.” The new Breaking Bad? Rectify is from a producer of Breaking Bad, but it’s a natural

Jail time McKinnon has spent some time in prison — “Mostly drinking offenses. My 20s were … a self-destructive time. Well, teens too.” — but nothing compared to Daniel. “The time I spent in a jail cell was very short, so it was a completely different experience. I just remember — there’s something about the idea of having something that restrictive and how that, in a strange way, because of the lack of choices, gives you a lack of freedom that too many choices don’t. This show taps into that.”

TV picks

Happy Endings could be ... ending There aren’t a lot of reasons to be upbeat about the future of Happy Endings. Although there are rumours the show could get picked up by a new network, ABC has launched a “save this show” campaign. So it’s possible the two episodes being aired Friday could be among the hilarious ensemble comedy’s last. (ABC, City)

Smash moves to Saturdays It’s never a good sign when a show is shifted to the

viewership dead zone that is Saturday nights, so fans of Smash probably want to tune in now while they still can. In this week’s episode of the low-rated Broadway drama, a nervous Ivy gets support from an unexpected source on opening night while Tom and Julia mull their next move. In real life, the show’s cast might be doing the same. (NBC)

Beckhams losing their ‘working-class accents’ New research proves that David and Victoria Beckham are losing their workingclass roots — or at least their working-class accents, according to the BBC. A study at the University of Manchester charting the Beckhams during the six years they lived in the United States finds that their blue collar brogues have dramatically diminished. For example, David previously

All of this means that Posh Spice is in fact getting more posh. “We think this may be connected with the fact that she’s forged a different career as a widely respected fashion designer,” Naomi Proszynska, a linguistics expert involved in the study, says.

Lisa Rinna to join RHOBH? the word

Dorothy Robinson scene@metronews.ca

I don’t know if I should feel proud of Lisa Rinna’s tenacity in attempting to stay in the public’s eye or sad. In any case, it looks like the TV personality is angling for a comeback, this time on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Yes, Rinna is aiming for an injected-lip showdown on the Bravo show, apparently replacing Adrienne Maloof.

“Producers had initially asked Lisa to become a part of the show when it first launched, but she turned it down because she decided to do her own reality show for TV Land,” a source told RadarOnline.com. That show, Harry Loves Lisa, wasn’t long for this world. “Lisa might come across as very sweet, but she isn’t a pushover,” the source says. Interesting choice, RHOBH. And good for you, Rinna. I always feel like she’s teetering between some form of mainstream television greatness, or appearing on the cover of a Sky Mall magazine. Maybe this is a step in the right direction?

As a James Bond aficionado, I was more than a bit disappointed that vodka didn’t make an official appearance in his blockbuster, Skyfall. I watched it again the other night, from the comfort of my own couch, and took a tally of the liquor brands that made their way into the flick. Heineken lager, The Macallan single malt scotch and Courvoisier VSOP cognac got plenty of screen time — all purchased no doubt. You’d have to be me to recognize the bottle of Bollinger champagne — its appearance obviously not purchased. But short of Bond sipping a martini, nary a mention of his favourite tipple, vodka. A vodka martini is a boozy cocktail that can turn off even the worldliest secret agent. That’s why producers have been scrambling to flavour their output with just about anything to make them more approachable both with and without mix. Three Olives Cake ($24.95- $28.98) is a neutral spirit from, coincidently, England that, well, tastes just like cake. Though I doubt Ian Fleming would approve, it’s a fine way to celebrate 007’s 50th birthday. Just forgo the candles. PRICES REFLECT THE RANGE ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

Dickey leaves, but Jays stave off White Sox MLB. Toronto’s highly touted pitching acquisition leaves game in 6th as precaution R.A. Dickey’s best performance of the young season for the Toronto Blue Jays was overshadowed by muscle spasms that forced him from the game. The veteran knuckleballer pitched six innings of two-hit ball to go along with seven strikeouts before leaving Thursday as Toronto went on to defeat the White Sox 3-1 to earn a series split with Chicago. Dickey (2-2) also gave up just one walk before exiting with neck and back spasms. He says if it wasn’t for the building discomfort that peaked in the sixth, he could have gone the distance. “I had a knuckleball tonight where I would have thrown a complete game,” said Dickey. “So it was unfortunate that it acted up on me. It was just getting tighter and tighter.” It was the second straight quality effort for the Jays ace, who allowed one run over 6 1/3 innings in a 3-2 win in Kansas City last time out. His first two starts were rough outings, but Dickey is starting to look like the reigning National League Cy Young winner Toronto went

after in the off-season. “I would say (it was my best),” said Dickey. “I knew I was close. Temperatures are warming up, there’s some humidity in the dome, I had a good feel for it. I was in the strike zone all night long. Something to build on for sure.” Rajai Davis, Edwin Encarnacion and Munenori Kawasaki each had an RBI for Toronto (7-

9), which won the opener of the four-game set before dropping the next two. Blue Jays manager John Gibbons seemed optimistic Dickey’s injury wasn’t serious enough that the pitcher’s next projected start — during a road series in Baltimore — would be in question. “We’ll see how it develops the next couple days,” said

Gibbons. “You have to calm it down, no question about that. But he’s a tough guy. I’m sure we’ll see him in five days.” With two outs in the sixth and Toronto leading 3-0, Dickey had trainer George Poulis and Gibbons come to the mound for a talk. He finished the inning by getting White Sox infielder Jeff Keppinger to fly out.

Derek Jeter will be sidelined until after the all-star break because of a new fracture in his broken left ankle — a blow to a New York Yankees team already reeling from injuries and one that raises long-term questions about the 38-year-old shortstop’s future.

Canadian welterweight Jordan (Young Gun) Mein and Rory (Ares) MacDonald have come a long way since meeting as teenagers back in June 2006 in Lethbridge. Both were 16 in what was Mein’s first pro MMA fight and MacDonald’s third. MacDonald — then fighting out of Kelowna, B.C. — won their encounter at Rumble in the Cage 17, a hometown show put on by Mein’s father Lee, by rear-naked choke at four minutes four seconds of the first round. “I remember being very disappointed, (having) let down all my friends and family,” recalled Jordan Mein.

in Seattle. Both are televised cards. The two fighters are now 23, but old beyond their years in fighting terms. Mein (27-8) is coming off an impressive showing in his UFC debut in March, when he knocked out veteran Dan Miller in the first round at UFC 158 in Montreal. MacDonald (14-1) has won four straight since losing to Carlos (The Natural Born Killer) Condit at UFC 115 in June 2010. Mein hopes he gets to meet MacDonald again. “Absolutely. I’m doing my best to keep my career on path and to keep winning. And he’s doing that as well. So I’m sure they will line up eventually.” Said MacDonald: “You never know what happens. Right now I’m just thinking about Jake. If I can continue to win and Jordan continues to win, then maybe it will get set up.”
