There will be more than just a pungent aroma wafting over the Vancouver Art Gallery at Saturday’s annual 4/20 protest. Activists say a new wave of optimism has been lit under them by more polls showing overwhelming public support for marijuana legalization in B.C. “I feel like we’re at the beginning of the end of cannabis prohibition now,� said longtime pot campaigner Dana

Larsen, referring to the November referendums in Washington and Colorado that saw adult recreational use legalized. “I’ve been involved in this for 20 years and people have often said, ‘Oh, it’s just around the corner, they’re going to legalize it any day now.’ And I’ve always thought, ‘No, it’s going to be within my lifetime if I’m lucky,’ but ... I feel like there’s a pathway now to decriminalization for us in the province that didn’t exist before.� Larsen will be on the main stage at Saturday’s annual smoke-out, encouraging 15,000 to 20,000 giggling, redeyed revellers to get involved in his Sensible BC campaign, which aims to spur a provincial referendum in September 2014. An Angus Reid poll released Thursday found 73 per cent of British Columbians

support a proposed research trial to evaluate whether the taxation and strict regulation of adult marijuana use could reduce profits to organized crime and better prevent youth access. Another poll released this week, commissioned by Sensible BC, shows more than 70 per cent support for decriminalizing possession and urging the federal government to give B.C. the right to legalize the drug. Larsen says he has more than 1,000 volunteers, 20,000 people pre-registered to sign his referendum petition this fall, and robocalls scheduled to go out to every land-line number in the province starting this week, offering the option to pre-register for the petition.

Bike share

NEWS

Bixi’s Toronto troubles don’t affect plans here: City officials Bike-share company Bixi’s financial woes in Toronto won’t affect the launch in Vancouver, which was supposed to happen in spring 2013, according to city officials. Toronto’s bike share is a different model, a city spokeswoman said. Vancouver has said it will provide $1.9 million a year to operate such a system, whereas Toronto guaranteed Bixi a one-time loan of $4.8 million. “We are in discussions with Bixi Bikes, who would provide only the bikes, and also Alta with a goal of providing convenient, flexible and affordable cycling options to residents and visitors,” the spokeswoman said. Once negotiations with the two preferred vendors are complete, council will make a decision. While the promised launch date is quickly passing, city staff denied reports last month that the bike share would be delayed until 2014. However, the spokeswoman did not say when the issue is expected to go to council. EMILY JACKSON/METRO

Police issue Vaisakhi warning to parents Surrey RCMP are urging parents to keep a close eye on their kids at this weekend’s Vaisakhi celebrations after more than 60 little ones went missing last year. All of the children were eventually found, but this year police are offering some preventative tips to parents: Familiarize your children with their surroundings and have a designated meeting place. Point out the Surrey RCMP’s missing children’s tent at 28th Street and 75th Avenue. Make sure your child has some kind of ID and your contact information with them. Finally, snap a photo of your child before the event on your camera or phone, so that you have a current photo of what they are wearing in case you need to describe them to authorities.

‘For the people.’ Staff recommended city council give VAG the green light to move to new site EMILY JACKSON

emily.jackson@metronews.ca

Even if the art gallery gets new digs, Robson Square isn’t going anywhere. The bustling public space bordered by Robson, Georgia, Hornby and Howe Streets has

long been the de facto heart of the city, where Vancouverites gather to protest and to celebrate, whether for the Occupy movement or the 2010 Olympics. And urban planners and local businesses expect that to continue should city council, as recommended by staff, give the Vancouver Art Gallery the green light to move to a new site at Cambie and Georgia streets if the gallery raises at least $150 million by April 2015. Vancouver’s former chief planner Brent Toderian says that if the new gallery is

Magic all its own

“It’s about the nature of the space and its location that makes it the centre.... The VAG contributes to that but doesn’t create it.” Brent Toderian, the city’s former chief planner

designed properly it could strengthen the eastern part of downtown. However, he doesn’t expect it will replace the “iconic power of the steps and Robson Square.” He does, however, “strongly hope” the city hands the space to the Museum of Vancouver, currently located in the less ac-

cessible Kits Point. “The city should work very hard to make sure a cultural institution operates in the space,” he said, noting the structure, built in 1906, was a courthouse until the gallery took over in 1983. “If it were a net loss of culture to that space, that would be a significant loss.”

Woman sues therapist for alleged affair with ex-husband A Kelowna woman is suing her former marriage counsellor, alleging the therapist had an affair with her husband, ruining the couple’s chances of reconciliation. Sheila Candline, a travel consultant, claims she first sought counselling with Dr. Heather McEachern in 1995 when Candline was suffering postpartum depression. Her husband, Bruce Candline, attended counselling sessions at that time and in the years that followed, she says. Sometimes, the therapist would see the husband and

wife together; other times they attended counselling separately, the legal action says. The lawsuit says the Candlines began having marriage difficulties in 2010 and separated in July of that year, but

the wife continued therapy sessions until August 2010. The next year, the lawsuit claims, the wife began to suspect her husband was in an intimate relationship, but Bruce Candline denied it involved anyone his wife knew. The lawsuit states that Sheila Candline began hearing rumours that her husband was involved in a relationship with the couple’s therapist, which the husband eventually admitted to in April 2011. The ex-wife claims she suffered public and personal humiliation, psychological

distress resulting in depression and that the therapist’s intimate relationship with Candline’s ex-husband ruined any chances of reconciliation between the Candlines, who finalized their separation agreement in March this year but have not yet divorced. The plaintiff is seeking general damages, as well as aggravated and punitive damages, against McEachern, plus court costs and interest. The allegations have not been proven in court.

Spending vs. fiscal restraint Campaign day 3. NDP, Liberals offer opposing ways forward for B.C. The leaders of British Columbia’s two main political parties stayed in their comfort zones on Thursday, with Liberal Christy Clark touring oil-andgas country, and New Democrat Adrian Dix heading to Vancouver Island to announce a $372-million plan to spend more on teachers and students. The first three days of campaigning have solidified the message both camps are trying to hammer home: The Liberals want voters to buy into the promise of economic riches in the future in exchange for modest spending now, while the NDP is touting a government that would end the era of government cutbacks in social programs and put paying down the deficit and debt on the back burner. Dix told a crowd of parents and children who were at his announcement that 12 years of Liberal cuts and confrontation has left the province with too many overcrowded classrooms. An NDP government would spend $372 million over three years, including $265 million to hire new teachers, counsellors, education assistants and librarians. He said the money could be used to hire up to 1,000 specialized classroom assistants. “If you look at what’s happened over the last 10 years, education has unfortunately

been a battleground, and kids have suffered, and so we have to change that and that’s what this plan seeks to do,” he said. The NDP also announced it will provide $100 million to lower costs and more child care spaces for infant and toddler care. The money will reduce fees at existing licensed infant and toddler care facilities by 20 per cent and save families up to $2,000 a year. The New Democrats also say another $300 million that is sitting in the bank from the current Liberal government’s RESP fund is being set aside for use on other issues involving children, though the party declined to elaborate. In the province’s northeast, Clark toured a water-reclamation plant that takes sewage and purifies it for use in fracking. The average family income in Dawson Creek is $74,000,

Clark said, noting “natural gas will provide jobs for British Columbia and not just any jobs — high-paying jobs.” “LNG is the industry that will make British Columbia debt-free,” Clark said. The Liberal leader has said the export of LNG is worth $1 trillion in economic growth over 30 years. The product will fetch five times more overseas than it will in North America. Clark’s campaign has continually tried to suggest that a “tax-and-spend” NDP government would cost the province jobs and she said on Thursday that an NDP government would mean the death of the opportunity LNG could provide. The New Democrat platform released last week said an NDP government would expand the province’s carbon tax to include vented emissions from oil and gas operations. the canadian press

Justin Trudeau at Quebec’s National Assembly on Thursday. the canadian press

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 put online. the canadian press

‘Krrrpow, krr-cchsshhh’: Meet Prosthesis, a three-tonne robotic beast with four legs That’s my baby. Engineer aims to raise $250,000 to finish building electricitypowered creation Kate Webb

kate.webb@metronews.ca

Jonathan Tippett is looking for some walking-around money. Tippett, a mechanical engineer, is building a threetonne, five-metre-tall electricpowered walking machine named Prosthesis: The AntiRobot at Vancouver’s eatART Laboratory. He’s trying to raise $250,000 in cash and parts so he can complete it by August of next year. So far, one hydraulic leg is built and will be demonstrated

Eye the robot

• Early-bird tickets to Vancouver Mini Maker Faire, where the first leg of Prosthesis will be demonstrated, are available until April 30 at vancouverminimakerfaire.brownpapertickets. com. • To watch a simulation of the robot walking, go to metronews.ca and search “Prosthesis.”

at the annual Vancouver Mini Maker Faire on June 1 and 2 at the Pacific National Exhibition. “Your body has four limbs, so I wanted to make a fourlimbed machine that could be controlled with one of each of your limbs,” said Tippett, who

has been working on the project for the past six years with a core team of 10 volunteers. “I’ve fantasized for hours on end about how it’s going to feel.” A button that sets off an alarm warning will activate the robot, lowering a set of stairs to the ground. The brave pilot will then be able to step into the leg interface, hoisting herself onto a unicycle seat and strapping herself into a comfy all-encompassing harness. Her hands will slide into a pair of gauntlet fixtures, triggering the inflation of a series of air bladders that grip her back tightly and secure her body to the controls. Then — as Tippett envisions it — it’ll be all systems go. “You’ll just extend your legs and this 3,000-kilogram machine will just go ‘krrrpow’

Prosthesis will stand five metres tall when completed. Contributed/Jonathan Tippett

up to two storeys tall, and then you throw your arms forward and these 500-kilogram steel legs will just go ‘krr-cchsshhh’ when you hit the ground,” he

Town tends its wounds after blast MIT. Shooting on U.S. Texas fertilizer-plant explosion. Police wouldn’t elaborate on the number of deaths, but more than 160 people were injured in the titanic blast Rescuers searched the smoking remnants in West, Texas,

Thursday for survivors of a thunderous fertilizer-plant explosion, gingerly checking smashed houses and apartments for anyone still trapped in debris or bodies of the dead. Initial reports put the number of fatalities as high as 15, but later in the day, authorities backed away from any estimate and refused to elaborate. More than 160 people were hurt.

A breathtaking band of destruction extended for blocks around the West Fertilizer Co. in the small community. The blast shook the ground with the strength of a small earthquake and levelled dozens of homes, an apartment complex, a school and a nursing home. Its dull boom could be heard dozens of kilometres 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. The Associated Press

campus leaves officer dead

Authorities said a campus police officer at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology has died from injuries in a shooting on the campus outside Boston. Cambridge police and the Middlesex District Attorney’s office said 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 said the shooting took place about 10:30 p.m. local time Thursday outside an MIT building. Procopio said authorities were searching for a suspect or suspects. No arrests had yet been made. MIT police, Cambridge police and state police are involved in the investigation. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

On camera. FBI release images of 2 suspects in the Boston bombings

In these images released by the Federal Bureau of Investigation on Thursday, suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing walk near the finish line on April 15. fbi/the associated press

The FBI released photos and video of two suspects in the deadly Boston Marathon bombings and asked for the public’s help in identifying the men. The agency’s website crashed within moments Thursday. FBI Agent Richard DesLauriers said the images come from surveillance cameras near the explosion sites, taken shortly before Monday’s blasts at the world’s most famous marathon. The men are seen walking together in the crowd, and the one in the white cap is seen setting down a backpack at a site near the finish line, DesLauriers said. “We consider them to be armed and extremely dangerous,” 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 people 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 and jackets, 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. “It would be inappropriate to comment on the ethnicity of the men because it could lead people down the wrong path, potentially,” said FBI agent Greg Comcowich, a spokesman for the Boston FBI office.

Icelandic app helps relatives avoid hookups Have we met somewhere? All in the family. When users ‘bump’ phones, an not a good feeling alarm sounds if they’ve “It’s when you realize that got too much in common girl is a second cousin.”

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,” goes the catchy slogan.

Einar Magnusson, a graphic designer in Iceland’s capital, Reykjavik

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 ago,” said Einar Magnusson, a graphic designer in Iceland’s capital, Reykjavik. “It’s not a good feeling when you realize that girl is a second cousin. People may think it’s funny, but (the app) is a necessity.” The Associated Press

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 food-borne 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

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.

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.

METRO DISH OUR TAKE ON THE WORLD OF CELEBRITIES The Word

Justin Bieber

Maybe Anne Frank would have been a Belieber? 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?

Maybe Justin Bieber wasn’t so off-base with his speculation that Anne Frank would’ve been a fan of his after all. Frank’s step-sister, Eva Schloss, is coming to the maligned pop star’s defense, calling the brouhaha over Bieber’s sentiments left in a guest book at the Anne Frank House “so childish,” according to the Telegraph. “She probably would have been a fan. Why not?” Schloss says. “He’s a young man and she was a young girl, and she liked film stars and music. They make a lot of fuss about everything that is connected with Anne Frank.”

A glass of vodka cake? LIQUID ASSETS

LIFE

Peter Rockwell @therealwineguy liquidassets@eastlink.ca

This recipe serves four and contains 321 calories and 13 g fat per serving.

BRIAN MACDONALD, FROM ROSE REISMAN’S COMPLETE LIGHT KITCHEN (WHITECAP BOOKS)

Salmon walks plank to drool-worthy status Salmon with OrangeMiso Glaze. For added flavour, barbecue this simple dish using cedar planks

Presoak them in water for at least 8 hours to prevent burning. You can reuse the planks a couple of times. Each serving contains 38 grams of protein.

1. ROSE REISMAN

for more, visit rosereisman.com or follow her on twitter @rosereisman

You can either bake this fish or barbecue it on a cedar plank. The planks are available at fish stores, supermarkets or lumberyards.

Preheat the oven to 425 F. Spray a baking sheet with cooking oil (or have ready a presoaked cedar plank and preheat the barbecue to high).

2.

To make the glaze, combine the miso, orange juice, soy sauce, oil, sugar and orange peel in a small bowl.

3.

Remove 2 tbsp of the glaze and brush lightly over the salmon. Sprinkle with the sesame seeds.

4.

Place the salmon on the prepared baking sheet or cedar plank and bake or grill for 10 minutes per inch of thickness of fish, or

until the fish flakes easily when pierced with a fork.

5.

Serve with the remaining sauce on the side. Garnish each serving with a sprinkling of green onions and cilantro. ROSE REISMAN’S COMPLETE LIGHT KITCHEN (WHITECAP BOOKS) BY ROSE REISMAN

Ingredients • 2 tbsp yellow miso • 1/4 cup orange juice concentrate • 2 tsp low-sodium soy sauce • 2 tsp sesame oil • 5 tsp brown sugar

• 1/2 tsp grated orange peel • four 4-oz skinless salmon fillets • 2 tsp sesame seeds • 3 tbsp diced green onions • 2 tbsp chopped cilantro

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.

NHL. Dallas breaks game wide open in final frame to stop Canucks from clinching playoff berth Cody Eakin, Jamie Benn and Ray Whitney scored goals early in the third period to break open a tie game and help the Dallas Stars cruise to a 5-1 victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Thursday night. Vernon Fiddler and Erik Cole also found the back of the net and Kari Lehtonen returned from a three-game absence due to a groin injury

to stop 37 shots for the Stars, who are 6-1-0 in their past seven games. Dallas moved into a tie with Detroit for ninth in the Western Conference, trailing Columbus for the eighth and final playoff spot by two points. The Stars have five games remaining, including one against the Blue Jackets in Dallas on April 25 and the finale against Detroit at home on April 27. Derek Roy, who was traded from Dallas at the trade deadline on April 2, scored for Vancouver, which had a chance to clinch a playoff spot with a win. The Canucks led the Northwest Division by four points over Minnesota, which

Whitecaps the ‘underdog’ against FC Dallas The Vancouver Whitecaps will look for their first win since March 9, when they visit FC Dallas on Saturday. However, the Whitecaps will try and do so without strikers Kenny Miller and Corey Hertzog, who were not slated to travel to Texas. Miller has been bothered by a lingering hamstring injury, while Hertzog was injured during Wednesday’s training session at UBC

and is being held out of the lineup with what the club reported on Twitter on Thursday as “concussion symptoms.” Saturday will mark the first meeting of the season between the Whitecaps and FC Dallas. It will also be the fourth time in the past five games that the Vancouver side has played on the road. FC Dallas is off to a great start, with a 5-1-1 record

“It’s an exciting game for us because we, maybe for the first time probably this season, feel like we’re going in as the underdog,” Whitecaps head coach Martin Rennie said on Wednesday after the club wrapped up training at UBC. “That’s a nice position to be in sometimes and I think we’ll embrace that and really look forward to it.” CAM TUCKER/METRO

When Mike Reilly was traded to the Edmonton Eskimos on Jan. 31, it presented Thomas DeMarco with an opportunity. News of the trade eventually made its way to DeMarco, who was behind Reilly in the depth chart last year. “It definitely motivated me,” he said. “I was in the gym early — I was doing 5 a.m. workouts before I would go to work — and when I heard that, I (had) a little extra pep in my step. It was easier to wake up to get going.” Having won the job as the B.C. Lions’ thirdstring quarterback a year ago at training camp, the 24-year-old DeMarco is now in a position to become the prime back-up to Travis Lulay. There are other candidates vying for the backup spot, including Rudy Carpenter, who signed with the Lions nine days ago, and Jarrett Brown, who signed with the Lions in October when CFL teams were allowed to expand their practice rosters. It’s also possible the Lions could discover and sign another depth quarterback during one of their five remaining free-agent camps across the U.S. this spring. But as things stood Thursday, when the Lions wrapped up a three-day mini-camp at their Surrey practice facility, DeMarco was the No. 2 quarterback. “If we were to play tomorrow, absolutely he’d be the guy because he knows our offence the best. He’s operated it for a year now,” head coach Mike Benevides said of DeMarco. “Right now he has that position, but only on paper. We need everybody to elevate their game and to really prove to us that they can do it.” CAM TUCKER/METRO

MLB

Yankees get more bad news on Jeter 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 longterm questions about the 38-year-old shortstop’s future. Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Jeter should be able to resume his rehabilitation when the new crack heals, in four to eight weeks. the Associated press

the hockey news

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 reigning National League Cy Young winner Toronto went after in the off-season. 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. Righthander Esmil Rogers came in to pitch a clean seventh. The Canadian Press

The first time Byron Scott was fired, Lawrence Frank took his job. Now they’re both looking for work, and the NBA’s coaching carousel is already spinning in three cities. Scott was fired by the Cleveland Cavaliers, Frank was ousted by the Detroit Pistons and Doug Collins resigned as coach of the Philadelphia 76ers, all three on Thursday, a day after the end of the regular season. And now the wait continues to see what happens in other cities, such as Sacramento, Toronto and maybe even Atlanta.

The Canucks have an 83 per cent chance of being the No. 3 seed in the Western Conference, according to sportsclubstats.com. Heading into Thursday’s games, it was down to four teams Vancouver may logically face in the first round. Here, ordered from least to most preferred, is that quartet and why Vancouver would or wouldn’t want that draw. The percentage is the chance of that matchup in Round 1. The Canucks’ record against that team is in parentheses. (One thing to note of all four of the teams below ­ — they all sit in the top 12 in penalty killing. Bad news for a Canucks team that already struggles while a man up, scoring at just 15 percent.) Minnesota, 23% (2-2-0): The Wild are a tough out, but, as you’ll read, they’re the lesser of the evils. An upand-down season is on the slide again with a recent 4-6-1 stretch that’s seen them shut out three times. Goalie Nicklas Backstrom has been mediocre against Vancouver in his career, going 13-13-6 with a 2.63 CFL

Abbotsford’s Lokombo still No. 1 going into Canadian draft Bo Lokombo remained in top spot on the CFL Scouting Bureau’s final rankings list of top prospects ahead of next month’s CFL Canadian draft. The six-foot-three, 233-pound linebacker from Abbotsford is coming off a strong season with the University of Oregon Ducks.

The Canadian Press

goals-against average and .906 save percentage. San Jose, 23% (0-2-1): The Sharks struggle to score, but goaltender Antti Niemi has been out of this world (2.12 GAA; .926 SP) and will be in the Vezina Trophy discussion. The 29-year-old Finn also knows how to win in the playoffs — he was Chicago’s netminder during its 2010 championship. The Sharks are also deadly at home, where they’ve lost only once in regulation. St. Louis, 29% (1-0-2): As the Canucks got a taste of on Tuesday, the Blues have rounded into a team that’s as good defensively as any in the NHL. St. Louis has given up more than two goals just once in April and Brian Elliott, after being written off as a one-year wonder, is the league’s hottest goalie. He’s 4-1-0 with a 0.59 GAA and .974 SP in his past five outings. Los Angeles, 14% (2-0-1): Though the Kings are the only team among this foursome the Canucks have a winning record against, L.A. is still the team to avoid. Not only is last season’s upset, when the eighth-seeded Kings topped the Canucks 4-2 in Round 1, still fresh, but Los Angeles is heating up again: It has points in 10 of its past 12 games. NHL

Islanders rally past Maple Leafs John Tavares had two goals and an assist Thursday as the New York Islanders rallied past the Toronto Maple Leafs 5-3. The Islanders (23-16-5) came into the contest seventh in the Eastern Conference but moved to within two points of fifth-place Toronto (24-15-5) with the victory. New York overcame an early 2-0 deficit to win the first of five straight road games it will play to end the regular season. The Islanders earned their fifth win in six games as they chase their first Stanley Cup playoff berth since 2007 while the Leafs could have ended their eight-year post-season drought with a win over the Islanders and a Carolina victory over the Winnipeg Jets. the canadian press
