It might be a month late, but with double-digit temperatures forecast for the city well into next week, it looks like Winnipeg may finally be getting its spring. As of late Thursday afternoon Environment Canada expected to see nothing but sunny skies in the city Friday with a high of 13 C forecast — and it’s only going to get better for the weekend, according to Environment Canada meteorologist John Paul Cragg. “There should be a decent

starting what many Winnipeggers will likely be thinking about as temperatures normalize — spring cleaning. More than 300 students and staff from General Wolfe and Isaac Brock Schools hit the streets with brooms and garbage bags to take part in West End BIZ’s annual Sweep Off clean up. “The sunny day is just a gift,” said the West End BIZ’s executive director Gloria Cardwell-Hoeppner of the clean up that for the first time saw garbage bags collected and piled into a mountain at the end of the day. “We wanted the kids to really get a sense of how much they’re collecting and how much it all adds up to.” Cragg’s long-term forecast will be favourable to anyone who wants to get a little springcleaning done — he told Metro the city could expect normal spring temperatures into next weekend.

Task force. Susan Griffiths. Winnipegger dies with aid of doctor 10-year plan in Zurich, reignites assisted suicide debate in Canada for homeless coming soon Downtown BIZ members got a chance to learn more about a project to eradicate homelessness in Winnipeg Thursday morning during a presentation by the Winnipeg Poverty Reduction Council’s Task Force to End Homelessness. The task force, which was struck in 2011 shortly after the Downtown BIZ’s inaugural CEO Sleepout, is working to develop a 10-year plan that aims to significantly reduce the number of people living on city streets. The task force hopes to have their plan completed by the end of this year. “We’re trying to provide a blueprint of what it will take to end homelessness in the next decade,” said Rob Johnston, RBC regional president, who co-chairs the task force. He said that while concrete goals haven’t yet been established, the plan will include a series of milestones over its 10-year run. According to Johnston’s co-chair Cindy Coker, executive director of Supporting Employment and Economic Development Winnipeg, the task force has brought together a number of leaders from business, non-profit organizations and all levels of government to help develop the plan. “We can’t do this work in silos. We have to have all those folks at the table to try and address an issue that’s this complex,” said Coker, noting that the plan’s goal isn’t necessarily to prevent people from ending up on the street, but instead to get them back off it and to connect them with employment.

A Winnipeg woman won her battle Thursday for the right to die on her own terms, with the help of a doctor, before she could be completely consumed by a disease that was robbing her of control over her body. Susan Griffiths, 72, died peacefully with some family members by her side at the Dignitas clinic in Zurich, Switz-

erland, a friend confirmed. Switzerland is the only country that allows physicianassisted suicide for non-residents. Griffiths did not go quietly, though. She went public with her story in the hope that Canada may change its laws. “While it has been wonderful having some of my family around me, I am saddened that

other close friends and family members are unable to be with me in my final days,” she wrote in one of her final messages — an email to The Canadian Press on Wednesday. “I sincerely hope that Canadian laws will change soon to allow individuals like myself to make end-of-life choices at home.” THE CANADIAN PRESS

Bus drivers risk being hit with bottles, coffee

Winnipeg Transit assaults. Union says more needs to be done to keep staffers safe after 52 operators were assaulted by passengers in 2012 SHANE GIBSON

shane.gibson@metronews.ca

The head of the union that represents Winnipeg Transit employees is renewing calls for more to be done to keep drivers safe after data from 2012 shows 52 operators were assaulted by passengers last year. The numbers are down slightly from 2011 — when 63 drivers reported being assaulted and city council ordered a report on how to improve safety — but Jim Girden, president of Local 1505 of the Amalgamated Transit Union told Metro on Thursday there’s

still a big problem. “One is one too many… there shouldn’t be any assaults on bus operators,” he said. The incidents commonly start over fares, said Girden, and the assaults range from verbal abuse to physical assaults — sometimes with impromptu weapons. “It could be a pop bottle or a hot coffee,” said Girden, who also fears for the safety of riders. “Assaults on drivers are just a step away from assaults on passengers.” Girden would like to see footage of abusive passengers caught by bus cameras circulated to the media and also thinks having a couple police officers

dedicated to transit could help curb the bad behaviour. While the report ordered last year looked at what Transit currently does to protect drivers, Girden is anxious to see the results of another study coming to council this fall looking at what other cities with similar

issues have done. Coun. Brian Mayes (St. Vital), who sits on the committee waiting for the report and has been active on the issue, said he hopes to have the report back in time to include its recommendations in next year’s budget.

Mayors press province for more infrastructure cash PST pitch. Issue ‘too important’ to give up on, says Katz John Towns

winnipeg@metronews.ca

Mayor Sam Katz has added some allies in his campaign to get more municipal infrastructure funding from the province. At a press conference on Thursday, Katz stood shoulderto-shoulder with the mayors of Brandon, Morden, Steinbach, Portage la Prairie, Winkler, Thompson and Association of Manitoba Municipalities president Doug Dobrowolski to demand more funds to address crumbling infrastructure. “This isn’t just affecting Winnipeg or Brandon or Selkirk or Thompson or Steinbach — it’s everyone,” said Katz, who noted he and several other mayors had sent a letter to Premier Greg Selinger asking for at least one per cent of existing PST revenues for municipal-

ities. As of Thursday morning, he had received no reply. Municipalities have been asking for one per cent of PST for several years, Dobrowolski said, but have been rebuffed. “The premier has repeatedly told us that there was no new money, and he was not elected to raise taxes, yet here we are today,” he said, referring to the province’s across-the-board one per cent increase to PST. Brandon Mayor Shari Decter Hirst said the province needs a different framework

for decision-making between the Selinger government and municipalities. “What the province has forgotten is that they are merely the tax collector,” she said. “The money they’re collecting belongs to the people of Manitoba — and those people, frankly, don’t care whether it’s a provincial highway or a provincial sidewalk. What they’re looking for is for all of us to be working together, because it’s in their best interest when we do that.”

Phoenix Sinclair case. Document shines light on child’s death If social workers had kept better tabs on her family, little Phoenix Sinclair might have been permanently taken away from the mother who would help beat her to death, say newly released sections of an internal review. The 2006 report by Winnipeg Child and Family Services and two other reviews were released in their entirety for the first time on Wednesday. Only portions of the documents had been released previously at a public inquiry. “Most of the intervention in this case ... seems to be phone calls or visits by social workers to ‘warn and caution’ the family. It is clear this intervention was unsuccessful in resulting in any noticeable change within the family,” the report says. “Perhaps if this case had been kept open for an extended period of time, a social worker could have developed ... a trusting relationship with this family and positive change could have been sup-

ported. If no change had occurred through intense proactive involvement, perhaps Phoenix would have been removed from the parents’ care on a permanent basis with a clear rationale why it was necessary.” Manitoba child welfare has already been roundly criticized for failing to protect Phoenix. She was seized from her parents, Samantha Kematch and Steve Sinclair, after her birth in April 2000 because the couple had a history of violence and addiction and were not prepared to care for her. The inquiry has already heard that social workers frequently failed to keep track of Phoenix and would give her back to one or both of her parents without enforcing conditions such as parenting courses or addictions treatment. Phoenix was beaten to death by her mother and her boyfriend, Karl McKay in June 2005. the canadian press

Spur Festival

New festival aims to ‘Spur’ the ’Peg to get serious — in a fun way Winnipeg is playing host to a new festival this weekend that aims to engage citizens in a dialogue about some of the serious issues facing society. Spur Winnipeg kicks off on Friday evening with a keynote speech from environmentalist and journalist Paul Hawken on carbon, power and sustainability at Manitoba Theatre for Young People. The festival runs through Sunday with a number of events throughout the city featuring speakers, debates, musicians and artists. “We want to have debate and conversation about serious ideas, but have a lot of fun doing it,” said festival director Helen Walsh.

Lucky pilot and passenger walk away from crash Two people are being treated for non-life threatening injuries after an ultralight plane crashed in the RM of St. Clements near Gull Lake. Selkirk RCMP responded to the crash shortly after 2 p.m. on Thursday, along with emergency services personnel from the East Beaches Fire Department. The male pilot and female passenger appeared to have only minor injuries, said Selkirk RCMP spokesman Const. Paul Human. “They were removed from the scene via an ambulance, but they actually were able to walk under their own power, so their injuries were fairly minor. The injuries were mostly cuts and bruises,” he said. Police are investigating the wreckage, and the Transportation Safety Board of Canada was notified of the crash. As of late Thursday afternoon, the flight plan of the plane was unknown, and Human did not have information about where either the pilot or passenger were from. John Towns/For Metro

‘New York City was next on their list’ Boston terror investigation. Surviving suspect says he and his brother planned to attack Times Square

The Boston Marathon bombers were headed for New York’s Times Square to blow up the rest of their explosives, authorities said Thursday, in what they portrayed as a chilling, spur-ofthe-moment scheme that fell apart when the brothers realized the car they had hijacked was low on gas. “New York City was next on their list of targets,” Mayor Michael Bloomberg said. New York Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said Dzhokhar Tsarnaev told interrogators from his hospital bed that he and his older brother decided on the spot last Thursday night to drive to New York and launch an attack. In their stolen SUV they had five pipe bombs and a pressure-cooker explosive like the ones that blew up at the marathon,

Kelly said. But when the Tsarnaev brothers stopped at a gas station on the outskirts of Boston, the carjacking

Later that night, police intercepted the brothers in a blazing gun battle that left 26-yearold Tamerlan Tsarnaev dead. “We don’t know if we would have been able to stop the terrorists had they arrived here from Boston,” the mayor said. “We’re just thankful that we didn’t have to find out that answer.” the associated press

Deep cracks in the walls of a Bangladesh garment building had compelled police to order it evacuated a day before it collapsed, officials said Thursday. More than 230 people were killed when the building splintered into a pile of concrete because factories based there ignored the order and kept more than 2,000 people working. Hundreds of rescuers worked through the night and all day Thursday amid the cries of the trapped and the wails of workers’ relatives gathered outside. Late Thursday, rescuers located 40 survivors trapped

Racism. Apology to black firefighters in Halifax signals ‘new day’: Chief Firefighter Robert Gray paused for a moment and looked down at the small fire truck in his hand, a crowd of nearly 100 people watching silently. “Up until the last year and a half I would never have recommended this job to anyone,” Gray said. “But in the last 15 months or so, I do enjoy coming to work. It’s changed.” On Thursday morning, the human rights complaint against Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM) and its fire service around racism in the workforce came to an end as members of the Halifax Association of Black Firefighters (HABFF), HRM and the Nova Scotia Human Rights Commission gathered to hear an official apology, and present a plan to end discrimination in the future. “As an employer, we should have done more to prepare the work environment to be inclusive and protect you as employees and as people,” said HRM fire chief Doug Trussler. The complaint was filed by a group of black firefighters back in 2009, detailing several instances of racism since 2002. Many incidents involved racial slurs, but the common thread is that follow-up investigations into the incidents were inadequate. “Frustration just reached

a boiling point. They’d throw processes in, and then wouldn’t do them,” said Ray Adekayode, one of the firefighters who spoke during the meeting. Gray added that bringing up the specific acts of racism doesn’t help anyone in moving forward. “Better late than never but it’s still heartfelt,” Gray said about the apology. “Sitting here listening to that definitely lifted my spirits, and made me feel better.” The parties also introduced a 26-point plan acknowledging the shortcomings of the service and creating specific ways to ensure racism is eliminated.

Virus affects boys, too

Group wants HPV vaccine for boys A physicians’ group is calling on provinces and territories to widen their HPV vaccination programs to include boys. The Society of Obstetricians and Gynecologists of Canada says jurisdictions should follow Prince Edward Island’s lead and make their programs open to both genders. Recently P.E.I. became the first province to make the vaccine publicly available to both girls and boys. Males spread the human papillomaviruses that the vaccines are trying to protect against. As well, the viruses cause a number of types of cancer in males. THE CANADIAN PRESS Citizen applications

Feds aim to cut wait times Canada’s immigration minister says he wants to see citizenship applications processed in 12 months or less. Jason Kenney told a Commons committee he is concerned about the backlog of citizenship applications in the system. At the end of 2012, there were nearly 350,000 cases in the system, almost double the number since 2007. Some applicants claim they’ve been waiting as long as four years to receive their citizenship when they were initially told it would take a year. The source of the backlog is pinned to an increase in the number of applications coupled with officials putting them under more scrutiny. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Hundreds of Canadians are going to join thousands around the world next week in a challenge called Live Below the Line, created by the Global Poverty Project to raise awareness of poverty. The $1.75 figure is the Canadian equivalent of the extreme poverty line as defined by the World Bank. Some 1.4 billion people live on that amount for all their needs, not just food and drink.

lenge to raise awareness. From next Monday to Friday, participants are asked to spend no more than $8.75 total for all meals and drinks. They are not supposed to eat food they have on hand unless that cost is factored in. They can drink tap water. They’re asked not to accept donated items from friends or family, though

monetary donations are encouraged to help participants meet their fundraising goals. “For a lot of people, $1.75 a day is less than they spend on their morning coffee, so it is a step outside of most people’s comfort zone,” said Erin Deviney, Live Below the Line campaign manager in Canada.

Tories back long jail terms The complexity of including the perspective of victims in Canada’s criminal justice system was encapsulated Thursday in a single, 24-minute news conference on Parliament Hill. “It’s taken years for victims to try to get the message out that we are not these angry, vengeful people,” said Sharon Rosenfeldt, whose 16-year-old son Daryn was one of the victims of serial killer Clifford Olsen in 1981.

“However, there is victimization whether you want to accept it or not. There is an aftermath to crime.” Rosenfeldt was on hand as the Conservative government announced it would back a private member’s bill designed to keep some killers behind bars for up to 40 years before becoming eligible for parole. The measure, which capped the eighth annual Victims of Crime Week in Ot-

tawa, is the work of Manitoba Conservative MP James Bezan, who says he was motivated by the needs of victims of crime, not a desire to punish the perpetrators. Bezan’s bill would allow judges to impose sentences of up to 40 years without parole for murders which involve a kidnapping and a sexual offence against the victim — “the most sadistic of our society,” he said.

Surprise plot twist! Cancelled soap operas are resurrected online Daytime-TV drama. Digital programmers bet on 2 major series booted from ABC Taped to a wall at the entrance to the Connecticut Film Center in Stamford, Conn., is this greeting: “Welcome (back) to Pine Valley.” Pine Valley, of course, is the mythical setting of All My Children, a daytime drama that ran on ABC for nearly 41 years until it was snuffed in 2011. But now, in one of those plot twists so common to soap operas but so rare in the real world, All My Children has been raised from the dead. Was its cancellation just a bad dream, from which the show is now awakening? In any case, AMC will be back starting Monday with much of its august cast intact,

Bangladesh. Joe Fresh customers shocked at garment-factory tragedy As rescuers continued to pull corpses and survivors from the rubble of a collapsed garment factory in Bangladesh, some consumers in Canada were shocked to learn that items from their favourite brands were made there. The building collapsed Wednesday killing at least 238 people. Canadian clothing line Joe Fresh was among the customers of the factories operating in the building. Natalie Erb, 24, shops at Joe Fresh at least once a week for everything from yoga clothes

to office wear, she said. The news out of Bangladesh has the loyal customer disturbed about her purchases. “To be honest, I had never really done much research into where Joe Fresh manufactures their clothing, but knowing what I do now, I’m hugely disappointed in the company,” said the Halifax woman. Joe Fresh parent company Loblaw released a statement saying some Joe Fresh items were made in the factory and offered its condolences to the victims and their families. The Canadian Press

Retail. Some business areas need to be ‘reset,’ says Sears Canada CEO A year into a major transformation, McDonald outlined to shareholders the efforts that have been made and some of the plans for the future. He said the company is about “halfway through” the changes. So far, Sears Canada has managed to save about $100 million in costs and McDonald hopes to squeeze another $100 million to $200 million over the “next few years.”

Sears Canada chief executive Calvin McDonald says there is still much work to be done as the department-store retailer reconsiders what it sells in its stores and how many locations it operates. “We don’t have our balance 100 per cent right,” McDonald said at the company’s annual meeting on Thursday. “There are still businesses that we’re in today ... that are struggling, declining in the marketplace and we need to reset.”

Luxembourg. Court upholds EU ban on seal products

Protecting Manitobans from frequent flooding and an uncertain global economy

Canada’s embattled sealing industry was dealt another blow Thursday when a European Union court upheld a three-year-old ban on seal products. The General Court of the European Union issued a statement saying it rejected a challenge from a group that includes the Canadian Fur Institute, the seal processing industry and one of Canada’s largest Inuit groups. The Luxembourg-based court said the existing ban is valid because it fairly harmonizes the EU market while protecting the economic and social interests of Inuit communities. Even though the Inuit have an exemption that allows them to sell seal products in Europe, the Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami wanted the ban struck down because the group believes its markets will dry up if a wider ban remains in place.

RICHARD CROUSE AND MARK BRESLIN

SCENE

The movie takes place in a modern ice age. Survivors found refuge from the ice and snow far underground in places like Colony 7, a community run with an iron fist by former military man Briggs (Laurence Fishburne). The underground ecosystem is fragile at best. “It’s not the cold we need to worry about, it’s each other,” says Sam (Kevin Zegers). An uneasy peace holds until a routine call to Colony 5 goes unanswered. As Briggs and a rescue team truck across the blustery tundra to investigate, things at Colony 7 go all Lord of the Flies. Unfortunately it’s an even worse situation at Colony 5.

Kevin Zegers, left, and Bill Paxton star in The Colony. HANDOUT

Life on The Colony certainly lacks lustre Standard sci-fi. A group of feral cannibals provide some excitement from an otherwise cardboardcutout script Richard: Mark, I thought The Colony made good use of the situation to build atmosphere and tension. The icy outside and claustrophobic interiors (it was shot at the decommissioned North American Aerospace Defense Command base in North Bay, Ont.) do the trick, and keep you uncomfortable throughout. Shadows and creepy sounds stand-in for elaborate special effects, but when the going gets bloody,

old school nasty action effects — like a bisected bad guy skull — are effective and cringe inducing. Were you hot or cold on it? Mark: Somewhere between tepid and lukewarm, Richard. Although there’s nothing wrong with this movie, there’s not much that is original or memorable. It’s a little bit zombie, a little bit aliens, a little bit haunted house. The atmosphere and tension are well done, but that isn’t enough. The real mystery is how they got Laurence Fishburne to appear in what feels like a superior direct-to-video release. RC: I hear you. On the downside The Colony has many of the standard plot devices used in sci-fi thrillers — who doesn’t

see the sacrifice of the metaphorical red shirt coming? — and the ultimate survivors just happen to be the good-looking ones who escape to Adam and Eve it up elsewhere. But it makes up for its deficiencies with some excellently feral cannibals and an ending that, while hopeful, is still bleaker and cooler than we might expect if this was a big Hollywood movie. MB: I didn’t find the ending bleak at all. What I did find bleak was casting Bill Paxton and giving him a one dimensional papier mâché role. Mind you, none of the characters were particularly vivid. RC: Bill Paxton has been in WAY worse movies than this. I kind of liked the simplicity

of the whole thing. Reminded me of an old school action movie that stereotypes as a kind of shorthand to let the audience know what to expect. It’s not the characters that are interesting — they’re the standard hero, anti-hero types — it’s their actions. This movie doesn’t reinvent the wheel by any means, but the journey the characters went on entertained me. Besides, any movie featuring feral cannibals is OK in my books. MB: Hey, I like a feral cannibal as much as the next guy; I mean, it’s not like I’m a vegan. I was modestly entertained by the movie but I thought it could have been better with a few more rewrites. I will say this, though: North Bay has never looked better.

After the huge success of the first two Iron Man movies, followed by the Avengers, were you even in the position to turn down this third instalment? I signed up for three movies, so I didn’t have the choice. But I wanted to do it. I promise. Did you have a say when it came to the evolution of your character? Working on this kind of project, you’re dealing with so many egos. A guy in a suit tells you, “This is the movie I want to make.” And you’re like, “Hang on a minute, what are you going on about?!” Iron Man 3, is first and foremost director Shane Black’s movie. He wrote the script together with Drew Pearce, another super talented guy. They spoke to all

those involved for two weeks and then they disappeared. They came back two weeks later with a script that was 100 times better than what we had originally discussed. It was a surprise. Normally, with this kind of movie, you read the script and you think, “F—, how am I going to film this trash?” It’s another kind of surprise. After Avengers, is it nice to go back to being the main character? We absolutely wanted to come back to something more “real.” I have to admit, I love arriving on set and seeing how huge it all is. Bombs exploding and all … Only, when I go out and watch a movie, I’m a bit of a snob. The most important thing is the relationship between the characters. In Iron Man 3, Tony has no armour and no Pepper (Potts, his assistant and love interest, played by Gwyneth Paltrow). He really has to fight. He also has to deal with his panic attacks. Is that a hard thing for you to do as an actor, considering he’s also meant to be a superhero? I love that kind of challenge. I remember reading it in the script: “Tony speaks to his computer and suddenly, he has a panic attack.” I was like, what? Him? It seems

weird but that’s who he is. Jon Favreau, who produced the first two episodes and who plays Happy Hogan in this one, has always said that this kind of movie is about normal people who can do incredible things with technology. It’s the nasty guys that come from another planet. Can an actor sometimes feel “alone” in this kind of super production? We’re often alone in life, aren’t we? I do my thing; I try and stay focused and when I go back to my trailer, I play with my willy until someone calls me. And you have to be careful. I got a really bad knee injury on set. After Avengers and Sherlock Holmes, I had this feeling that I could do it all. Jump off a building? Sure! I wasn’t careful and we had to stop filming for six weeks. Your career has had a lot of ups and downs. Do you take your job as seriously as you used to? Honestly? You can take on two different attitudes when it comes to the way you deal with your life. You can try and control it. Or you can try and accept it. I think I worked harder than most people would have done on this kind of movie. I think I have a certain work ethic.

Don Cheadle’s been on a pretty intense world tour for Iron Man 3, and it’s beginning to wear on him. “I’m beat, but you know. It’s the home stretch,” he offers with a shrug as we sit down to start our interview in Los Angeles. That home stretch, by the way, is nothing to sneeze at: “We leave Thursday for New York, Toronto, it just goes on,” he says. But when you’re promoting one of the biggest superhero franchises on the planet — playing James “Rhodey” Rhodes, who suits up as Iron Man’s government-sanctioned counterpart Iron Patriot — this kind of schedule is par for the course. With a movie this size, I guess it’s what you signed up for. Yeah, you forget that. It’s like having a baby for a woman, you know. If I could remember this every time I did a movie, I’d probably just quit.

The humour level in this one seems amped up, especially between you and Robert Downey Jr. There’s more of it. I think if you look at the second movie, when we’re in the Japanese garden at the end, you kind of see where it’s headed. You see us starting that whole process at that point, and I think this is just sort of the further culmination of that. And I think there’s more that could be mined, and we’ll see if there’s anything that’s going to happen afterward. But yeah, it was nice to have the opportunity to really find some more colours in their relationship. Please drink responsibly. Must be legal drinking age.

Don Cheadle. When it comes to tough press tours, he’s a real Iron Patriot

How was it different for you as an actor having Shane Black directing compared to Jon Favreau? Well, having Shane be the writer of the piece, there’s a lot more of a shorthand, a lot quicker sort of availability to the writer when we’re going over the scenes and going through the scenes. There’s a lot of improv that happens, but the improv is in sort of a controlled playground, you know? There’s not a lot of improv that’s happening on camera.

A 9 on the pain scale

“You forget that. It’s like having a baby for a woman, you know. If I could remember this every time I did a movie, I’d probably just quit.” Don Cheadle on the gruelling press tours actors have to endure to promote films

Who mentioned that? Oh wait, me. (laughs) The movies, the family of Marvel movies, have been faithful to their own mythology, not necessarily to what the comic book dictates. You know, in the comic book Rhodey is in the Marines, Iron Patriot is a completely different character. So there’s a contained sort of mythology that the movies answer to, and that’s something that Marvel is continuously creating. So yeah, he might show up, I don’t know. I’d be down for it.

kins, the writers and the network as well that we’re able to get through it. And it’s three months out of the year, so it’s pretty selfcontained, and then I have the rest of the year to do the other things. I have a production company that’s pretty healthy right now, we’re doing a lot of stuff with them. And I try to get in some family time and rest and all that. (laughs) I have a daughter on her way to college, so that’s cool. So I’m pretty happy, it’s been a nice balance so far.

Is there anything you can do to lobby for that? No, but you can get on it. Just park yourself outside of Kevin Feige’s house.

And how much time does that leave to camp outside Kevin Feige’s house? That’s what you’re going to do. You have to ask yourself that question. Get on it, it’s important.

I’m sure that will go over very well. Well, get your friends. Don’t just do it by yourself. That’s not enough. That’s weird. How is the balance between making your TV show, House of Lies and your film work? It’s great. I mean, the show is a blitzkrieg when we’re doing it. It’s three months and we’re shooting an episode per five days, which is really, really fast. But it’s a testament to the production team behind us and our director, Stephen Hop-

Maybe this is brilliant marketing on Showtime’s part, or maybe I just have a simple brain, but I can’t drive past the L.A. diner House of Pies without thinking of your show. It’s your brain. (laughs) Now, that would be marketing. I should just buy the franchise. I think it’s just the one store. Well then that’s not such a big deal. Just walk in and get it. ned ehrbar, metro world news

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

The real-life tale of three Miami-based body builders (Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson and Anthony Mackie) who abduct a prominent local businessman (Tony Shalhoub) in a plot to grab his wealth is so outlandish that director Michael Bay flashes up a graphic in the last half hour reminding us this is “STILL a true story.” Playing like an episode of CSI: Miami performed by the Three Stooges, this is a violent, funny movie featuring likeable actors playing unlikeable people. richard crouse

••••• All the pretty lakeside country homes, big stars and cool clothes can’t save this family gathering comedy from instant oblivion. Flat humour leaning on fart, barf and orgasm jokes and painfully inauthentic dialogue is just the start. The actors are clearly giving their all, but they’re licked. Copping feels at dinner is about as funny as it gets. A blended family of one dimensional “types” dredges up its dirty secrets on the eve of the son’s wedding; this gives them license to act out. anne brodie

The director of award-winning film Senna is making a documentary about the late soul singer Amy Winehouse. The Winehouse family said in a statement Thursday that it had been approached with many documentary proposals, but Senna director Asif Kapadia and producer James GayRees presented a vision that would “look at Amy’s story sensitively, honestly and without sensationalizing her.” Celebrating film

Affleck to receive honorary doctorate Academy Award-winning actor and director Ben Affleck is among six artists, writers, scientists and educators selected to receive honorary degrees from Brown University at next month’s graduation ceremonies.

“I have a big thing about child actors, and that is I have an aversion to child actors who ‘act’ as opposed to child actors who can be natural, who can be real … Scarlett Johansson was a kid when we did The Horse Whisperer and I was very concerned if a child looked like they were acting it would be like fingernails on a blackboard.” Robert Redford, who stars along with acting newcomer Jackie Evancho in the film The Company You Keep. the canadian press

‘It was like the music was just waiting to happen’ Blues. Charlie Musselwhite talks about how he was just destined to collaborate with Ben Harper PAT HEALY

scene@metronews.ca

The particulars of the first time that Ben Harper and Charlie Musselwhite played music together are almost too perfect. During a session for John Lee Hooker, Harper played guitar and Musselwhite played harmonica on a song called Burnin’ Hell, which appeared on Hooker’s Best of Friends. Playing with a blues legend like Hooker solid-

ified their integrity, playing a song titled Burnin’ Hell solidified their badassness, and playing on an album titled Best of Friends — well, you get the picture. The two musicians guested on each other’s albums over the years, but it wasn’t until this year’s Get Up! that they fully ignited the creative spark that began in the late 1990s. “We’re both so busy, but we’ve both been wanting to get in the studio together for so long,” says Musselwhite. “Ben did one tune on an album of mine, and I did two or three on an album of his once, but we never had time to actually do a whole album together.” And when they did finally get into the studio,

it was exactly what Hooker had ordained it to be. “It was like the music was just waiting to happen. It just came pouring out of us. It was real spontaneous and it happened real fast,” recalls Musselwhite. Get Up! is a collection of 10 blues songs that feel so classic that it’s not immediately clear these are all brand-new recordings. “No overdubs except for the girls’ voices,” Musselwhite shares eagerly. Musselwhite wails on the harmonica and Harper lyrically delivers hard, old truths in new ways. Though there are more than 25 years between the two, the elder musician says Harper has an old soul. “He’s got some mud on his shoes,” chuckles Musselwhite about Harper.

land with MTV series My Crazy Beautiful Life. Half hour show filmed over last two years of singer’s life Ke$ha Kardashian? Not quite. The wild and playful pop star is a huge fan of the swarm of Kardashian reality shows, but says her new series is far from what you see on the small screen from Kim, Kourtney and Khloe. “I have a love for the Kardashians; I’m not going to lie to you,” the 26-year-old said in a recent interview. “I love that show, but it’s very different. I do not look as pretty as they do — like at all. During my show, there’s a lot of moments with no makeup at all, like I’m in a T-shirt running around in my underwear.” Six 30-minute episodes make up Ke$ha: My Crazy Beautiful Life, which debuted Tuesday on MTV. Her brother, Lagan Sebert, filmed the singer over two years

while she toured and recorded music. The show includes silly moments backstage, clips of Ke$ha making out with boys, as well as interactions with her fans, friends and mother Pebe Sebert, who co-wrote songs on each of Ke$ha’s albums. In one episode, Ke$ha stalks her ex-boyfriend, who was the subject of her 2010 tune The Harold Song. “I bumped into him recently and I was kind of like, ‘Sorry about that,’” she said. Ke$ha, who has a party-girl vibe, said some members of her team worried about what she would air on the show. “I’m pretty game for most things, honestly,” she said of what viewers will see. “There are issues that my record label has and my publicist, they don’t want me to do lots of things, but ... I feel like the message has to be genuine for me. That’s why I am showing all the imperfections.” Ke$ha’s reality show comes five months after she released her second full-length album,

Warrior, which features the smash single Die Young. The series could help push sales since the album has only moved 252,000 units, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It’s not matching the immediate success of her 2009 debut, Animal, which has sold more than 1 million albums and launched four Top 10 singles, including her breakthrough anthem TiK ToK. Cannibal, the EP she released 10 months after her debut, has reached gold status. Despite that, Ke$ha said that since releasing her debut she’s been calling the shots when it comes to her career. “Now I really run my (business). I don’t let anything slip through the cracks without me managing it, every aspect of it,” said Ke$ha, who will join rapper Pitbull on a co-headlining tour May 23 in Boston. “Because the media can be very critical and if they’re going to criticize something that I do, I want it to be very much something I was involved in.” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Justin Bieber

Do you beliebe he’s a stoner? Justin Bieber’s European tour hit another snag Wednesday night in Stockholm when police raided his tour bus, reportedly discovering a small amount of drugs and a stun gun, according to the Associated Press. A police officer working crowd control outside the bus noticed a suspicious smell and ordered the raid. The substance found aboard is said to be marijuana and has been sent to a lab for testing. Bieber had vacated

the bus half an hour prior to the raid to take the stage at the Globe Arena, and the bus was empty at the time of the search. “No one was cited or arrested,” a source says. “There were no violations.” Bieber himself doesn’t appear to be letting the news get to him. “Some of the rumours about me, where do people even get this stuff ?” he tweeted upon arrival in Finland Thursday morning. “Whatever. Back to the music.”

The closed captioning company that erroneously reported that the Boston Marathon bombing suspect still on the loose last week was named Zooey Deschanel has officially apologized to the New Girl actress, People.com writes. During Friday’s hunt for 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the closed captioning that appeared on Dallas-Fort Worth’s Fox 4 read “He is 19-year-old Zooey Deschanel.” Upon seeing the snafu for herself, Deschanel took to Twitter to write “Whoa!

Nod to spring LIQUID ASSETS

LIFE

Peter Rockwell @therealwineguy liquidassets@eastlink.ca

While the thermometers across the country may be telling a different story, spring has sprung. Just because you have to wear your coat to let out the cat doesn’t mean you can’t embrace all that’s fresh and lively about the season. The bright flavours synonymous with a spring menu can easily be found in a glass. White grapes like riesling, Viognier and Gewürztraminer offer plush fruit expression, no matter where they’re grown. They also make ideal partners for casual dishes, especially this week’s mint-led recipe. Softer red grapes such as pinot noir, grenache and merlot make a perfect partner for mushrooms, especially if they come stuffed with a little spice. A happy middle ground is a rosé wine. Though often accused of being the soda pop of the wine world, White Zinfandel’s status has risen, lately, thanks to the popularity of wines with a sweeter edge. Incredibly food-friendly, Beringer’s California Collection 2011 White Zinfandel ($9.95 to $12.49) is slightly drier than you might expect, with a thirst-quenching finish that shouts spring.

Sausage and spring greens enhance whole-wheat penne

This recipe serves four.

matthew mead/ the associated press

1. Bring pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook for a few minutes less than the recommended time on the box.

2. Meanwhile,

cut off and reserve Swiss chard stems. Chop Swiss chard leaves coarsely. Cut the stems into 1/2-inch lengths.

3. In skillet over medium-high,

heat oil. Add sausages and cook, stirring, 3 minutes, or until browned. Use slotted spoon to transfer sausages to a bowl.

4.

Return skillet to medium heat and add onion. Cook until golden, 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook, stirring, for 1 minute.

5.

Add Swiss chard stems to skillet, cover and cook 3 minutes. Remove lid and add half

Swiss chard greens. Stir and cook, stirring occasionally, until greens are slightly wilted. Add remaining greens, cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until completely wilted. Add tomatoes, hefty pinch of salt and the red pepper flakes, if using.

6.

When the pasta is almost done but not quite al dente, drain it, reserving 1 cup of the cooking liquid. Add pasta and 3/4 cup of the cooking liquid to skillet and simmer 4 minutes, adding more cooking liquid if necessary, until pasta is al dente and most liquid has evaporated. Add sausages, then season with salt. Divide mix among 4 shallow bowls and top each portion with some cheese. The Associated Press/ Sara Moulton, author of three cookbooks, includ-

Ingredients • 8 oz whole-wheat penne • 1 lb Swiss chard • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil • 4 oz sausages, halved length wise, then sliced 1/2-inch-thick crosswise • 1/2 cup finely chopped yellow onion • 2 cloves garlic, minced • 15-oz can (about 1 3/4 cups) chopped tomatoes, preferably fire roasted • Kosher salt • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes (optional) • 1 1/2 oz grated ParmigianoReggiano cheese

ing Sara Moulton’s Everyday Family Dinners.

Snack. Cedar-planked Pecan, Bourbon and Brown Sugar Glazed Brie 1.

Soak the cedar plank in water for at least 30 minutes. If necessary, weigh it down to keep it submerged.

2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl

stir together the brown sugar, pecans, dried cherries and bourbon. This step can be done up to a week ahead. If so, cover and refrigerate until needed.

3.

Heat the grill to indirect medium heat. The cheese also can be prepared in the oven. For the latter, heat it to 400 F.

4.

Place the brie on the wet

cedar plank. Spread the jam over the top of the cheese. Spoon the fruit and nut mixture over the jam. You may not need all of the nut mixture. Place the plank with the brie either on the grill grates or on a cookie sheet in the oven.

5. Either way, cook for 10 min-

utes, or until the brie is slightly softened and the sugar melts. Meanwhile, in bowl, toss apple and pear slices with the lemon juice. Arrange the slices and grapes around the side of the brie. Serve on the plank with a cheese knife. The Associated Press

Ingredients • Cedar grilling plank (about 6-by-8 inches) • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar • 1/4 cup chopped pecans • 2 tbsp dried cherries • 1 tbsp bourbon • 8 oz round brie • 1 tbsp no-sugar raspberry jam • 1 each Granny Smith apple and pear, cored and thinly sliced • 2 tbsp lemon juice • Small bunch of grapes • Water crackers, to serve

Recharging the Finnish Flash NHL. 42-year-old Selanne gets rare game off ahead of run at the Stanley Cup Teemu Selanne has finally agreed to do the unthinkable. Selanne, the NHL’s oldest player at 42, accepted coach Bruce Boudreau’s request to take a game off as the Anaheim Ducks visited the Vancouver Canucks on Thursday. “Obviously, I don’t like to take too (many) days off, but I believe it’s a good thing,” said Selanne. “Of course, it’s never happened to me.” The move was designed to make sure the Finnish Flash has plenty of dash as the Ducks return to the playoffs after missing the post-season a year ago. In the past, he said, the schedule never allowed him to rest voluntarily, because Anaheim had games that mattered as the season came to a close. But the rejuvenated Ducks have already clinched the Pacific Division title, the second

seed in the Western Conference and home-ice advantage in at least the first round of the playoffs. So Selanne was willing to rest in return for a chance to play in Anaheim’s final regular-season contest Saturday, at home against the Phoenix Coyotes, and get ready for the playoffs. He admitted the “brutal” lockout-compressed, 48-game regular season has taken its toll on him. “The first 25 games, I felt good, and then, the second half, I was still grinding,” said Selanne, who has 11 goals and 12 assists in 45 games this season. His energy level “has not been there” lately, but coaches, teammates and opponents alike marvel at his ability to excel when most of his peers

are retired. “It’s amazing that, at his age, he’s still one of the best players,” said Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo. “He’s got a knack for scoring goals — especially against us. He seems to find the net on a daily basis.” “Teemu, he’s a guy that you can count on, because he’s been there, he’s done it, he’s won a Stanley Cup, and he’s been a primary player in this league for a long time,” said Ducks forward Andrew Cogliano. The past few springs, Selanne has contemplated retirement as the season wound down. But he has deliberately avoided the question this year. With the demanding schedule, he would “probably have a negative experience thinking about next year.” The canadian Press

“It’s so funny how your body changes and how (many) little things you have to do when you get older.” Teemu Selanne says he has to do a lot more of his pre-game activities these days to be physically prepared.

The Anaheim Ducks’ Teemu Selanne, the NHL’s oldest player at 42, accepted coach Bruce Boudreau’s request to take a rare game off on Thursday. The Canadian Press file

Supersized: Clubs go big in NFL draft Year of the lineman. Chiefs make offensive tackle Eric Fisher top pick as skill positions take backseat in 2013 NFL teams bought in bulk early in Thursday night’s draft. Unlike the last few glamand-glitter years when bumper crops of quarterbacks reigned, this was pure brawn: More than 600 pounds at the outset with offensive tackles Eric Fisher of Central Michigan and Luke Joeckel of Texas A&M. The first seven picks were all linemen: Four on offence, three on defence. Fisher became the first Mid-American Conference player selected at the top when Kansas City’s new regime led by coach Andy Reid chose the six-foot-seven,

306-pound offensive tackle. “This is so surreal,” Fisher said. “I’m ready to get to work right now. I’m ready to start playing some football. I can’t process what’s going on right now.” Fisher was followed by the All-American Joeckel going to Jacksonville, defensive

end Dion Jordan of Oregon to Miami, which traded up with Oakland, and Oklahoma tackle Lane Johnson to Philadelphia. Not a skill position player yet in sight — a stark change from the last four drafts, when quarterbacks went first. The procession of linemen continued with BYU defensive end Ziggy Ansah, born in Ghana, going to Detroit; LSU defensive end Barkevious Mingo to Cleveland; and North Carolina guard Jonathan Cooper to Arizona. “That’s a lot of love for the big boys up front, which we usually don’t get,” Fisher said. That made for a ton of beef after the first seven picks. And they wore it well, with their designer suits that were barely ruffled when they each engulfed Roger Goodell in the now traditional bear hugs between draftee and commissioner.

Yankees power past Blue Jays

Resistance futile for Bucks Miami Heat forward Chris Bosh draws contact from Bucks forward Larry Sanders during Game 3 of the Eastern Conference quarter-final series on Thursday night in Milwaukee. The Heat won 104-91 to take a 3-0 series lead. Mike McGinnis/getty images

With Derek Jeter making his first visit to the Bronx this season, Robinson Cano hit a three-run homer and the New York Yankees used a flurry of early long balls to outslug the Toronto Blue Jays 5-3 Thursday night. Vernon Wells homered again against Mark Buehrle, and Francisco Cervelli also connected for New York, which overcame a 3-0 deficit to beat the Blue Jays for the third time within a week. The Yankees took two of three in a weekend series in Toronto. Jeter, out until probably mid-July because of a broken ankle, watched a no-frills New York lineup improve to 12-9. Hiroki Kuroda (3-1) settled after giving up homers to Edwin Encarnacion and Brett Lawrie in the first two innings, giving up six hits and three runs in six innings. He didn’t allow a hit after Munenori Kawasaki doubled with two outs in the second. the associated press

Crossword: Canada Across and Down

Horoscopes

Aries

March 21 - April 20 You may be independent by nature but lately you have allowed other people to lead you in directions that are not right for you. It’s time to put a stop to it. It’s time to reassert your autonomy. Do it now.

Libra

Sept. 24 - Oct. 23 Keep telling yourself everyone is different and everyone has their own way of dealing with life. In the greater scheme of things everything, and everyone, has its place.

Scorpio

Taurus

April 21 - May 21 Speak your mind without fear but be ready for the backlash. Some people are a bit touchy from yesterday’s eclipse, so it’s best to steer clear of certain topics. Unless you’re looking for a fight, of course.

Oct. 24 - Nov. 22 Yesterday’s eclipse stirred up emotions and it may be some time before you get back to normal. Remember that applies to other people as well, so don’t overreact if someone says something out of turn.

Sagittarius

Gemini

May 22 - June 21 The planets urge you to keep a low profile over the next 24 hours. Your emotional and physical batteries are depleted and you need plenty of rest to bring you back up to par.

Cancer

June 22 - July 23 Someone who is as different to you as is possible will inspire you to seek answers in a new direction. For quite some time now you have felt that something is lacking. Find out what it is.

Leo

July 24 - Aug. 23 Is someone in a position of power being nice to you because they want something that only you can provide? Or is their concern with your welfare genuine? It’s the former.

Virgo

Aug. 24 - Sept. 23 An opportunity is slipping away from you and you need to act fast. Most likely you have taken too long to make up your mind about it but you no longer have that luxury.

today

Nov. 23 - Dec. 21 If you don’t feel confident about taking on some new responsibility, don’t push it. The choice is yours to make and if certain people try to hurry you into making it, you should give it a miss.

Capricorn

Dec. 22 - Jan. 20 Steer clear of issues that are likely to be contentious. Even if someone asks you in a friendly manner what you think of a certain situation, it may be best to give an answer that can be taken several ways.

Aquarius

Jan. 21 - Feb. 19 You may find it hard to force yourself to be enthusiastic about something you don’t much enjoy doing. But seeing as you will have to do it, you might as well make the effort.
