Big, bold and blue

10th Blue Nose Marathon to reach Boston, Bahrain


When dogs heal vets Retired Capt. Medric Cousineau says his dog Thai has helped banish depression, anger, paranoia and suicidal thoughts. DEVAAN INGRAHAM/FOR METRO

Trauma. Blue Nose the start of quest to raise funds for veterans with PTSD to get service dogs

What it takes

“The (Blue Nose) ‘Just Give ’er’ motto ... for us it really becomes our mantra. If we don’t push it to the max, we’re going to get run over by life.” Retired Capt. Medric Cousineau


Marathons are a challenge for anyone, but for one Eastern Passage man, Sunday’s Blue Nose is just training for a much longer journey. Retired Capt. Medric Cousineau and his service dog Thai will walk the halfmarathon in preparation for a 50-day walk this summer, launching a challenge to government policy.

The pair will begin the “Long Walk to Sanity” from Dartmouth to Ottawa on Aug. 1 to raise awareness of the impact of service dogs on veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder. “I’m one of the lucky ones,” he said. “I came out the other side on the end of a leash.” Veterans Affairs Canada doesn’t currently fund service dogs for PTSD, which Cousineau calls a “complete

disconnect.” The former Air Force navigator was injured during an ocean rescue in 1986 and suffered decades of mental illness. He was paired with Thai through an American agency in 2012 — and the difference has been life-altering. Thai interrupts devastating night terrors and overrides dissociative episodes and flashbacks, slowly bringing Cousineau back from the

razor’s edge of depression, anger, paranoia and suicidal tendencies. “I go out in public now and I do things I haven’t done in years,” he said. Cousineau said Thai has had a significant effect on his physical wellbeing, too. “If you’d told somebody a couple of years ago that I was going to do the Bluenose half-marathon, they’d have looked at you and said, ‘What, in a taxi?’” he said. He’s hoping to raise enough money through the campaign to buy dogs for 50 veterans. “I am not going to accept that we’re going to stand around and do nothing, because there is a solution,” he said.


The 10th annual Blue Nose Marathon is poised to be the biggest and most global race in the event’s history. Not only are 14,000 runners expected to register for Sunday’s events — the largest number yet — a handful of those won’t even be here in Halifax. “HMCS Toronto is in Bahrain right now, and about 50 crew members are running the Blue Nose in a combination of on the ship and on land,” said event chair Gerry Walsh. “That’s never been done before; that’s kinda cool.” With the bombing of the Boston Marathon still a raw memory, Walsh said the victims and survivors will be honoured with a moment of silence before Sunday’s races. “On our bib we have a little square that says ‘Boston Strong,’” said Walsh. “Also, all those Nova Scotians who were running (in Boston) but could not finish have been admitted free to our event.” Although it’s the 10th anniversary event, Walsh said at this point it feels like any other race coming together. “I always get really excited during this week because it’s so much fun and it’s really the culmination of a year of hard work and planning,” he said.

Nathan Cross. North Preston murder added to unsolved crimes program The murder case of a North Preston man from 2011 is the latest homicide to be added to the province’s Rewards for Major Unsolved Crimes Program. On April 24, 2011, 21-yearold Nathan Cross was shot standing with a group of people outside of a home on Churchill Terrace. Police say Cross, who was wearing body armour, was shot several times and died en route to hospital. Halifax RCMP spokesman Cpl. Scott MacRae told Metro last month that police have received “a little bit of information” related to the case but investigators “still believe that there’s more information and valuable details out there.” He said there were witnesses in the area at the time of the shooting and their information could help solve the crime, and result in charges being laid. Under the province’s awards program, anyone who gives information that leads to an arrest or conviction could receive up to $150,000. “I urge anyone with information related to Nathan Cross’ homicide to please come

forward,” Justice Minister Ross Landry said in a statement Thursday. ”No piece of information is too small and could be just what the police need to solve this case.” This isn’t the first tragedy to strike the Cross family. Nathan’s mother, Laura Lee Cross, is also part of an unsolved homicide case. The remains of the 33-year-old Dartmouth woman were found at a logging road near Halifax Stanfield International Airport in 2002, one year after she was reported missing. Anyone with information on the Nathan Cross murder investigation is asked to contact police on Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477. Philip Croucher/metro

A man accused of confining and sexually assaulting a teenage boy at a home in rural Nova Scotia will plead guilty to some charges in the case, his lawyer said Thursday.

Taylor said the remaining charges would be dropped by the Crown, likely during sentencing about two or three weeks after Leblanc pleads. Leblanc, 48, is charged with seven offences in relation to the alleged incident last fall in

Upper Chelsea. They include sexual assault, sexual assault causing bodily harm, forcible confinement, uttering a death threat, kidnapping, administering a noxious substance with intent to cause bodily harm and breach of conditions. Taylor said Leblanc will also enter guilty pleas next Thursday in an unrelated case in which he allegedly photographed and sexually assaulted two boys, aged five and two. He

also didn’t specify which charges Leblanc will plead guilty to in that case. Leblanc was arrested in December 2010 and charged with two counts of sexual assault, as well as single counts of sexual interference and making, accessing, distributing and possessing child pornography. Leblanc will be sentenced on both matters simultaneously, Taylor said, adding that the defence and the Crown will submit a joint sentencing recommendation. “We’ll work out the final details and come back, but there’s no need for a lengthy delay.” Taylor wouldn’t elaborate on what kind of prison term he is seeking. the canadian press

Martin said the four-day tourney, taking place in the Salter parking lot from Aug.

15 to 18, will feature teams from Canada, the U.S., England and Germany, compet-

ing for the inaugural Canada Cup. “This is Volleyball Canada’s new tournament to challenge the world,” he said. “It’s guaranteed that we’ll have a number of athletes who played at the London Olympics last year … so we’re really excited about that.” Martin said the stadium will remain roughly the same size, at about 2,000 seats, and ticket prices will remain between $10 and $20. However, fans will now have the option of taking in a nighttime game during round-robin play. “After work you can come out on a warm summer evening and go for dinner downtown and then come check out some really cool volleyball and then maybe head out on the town afterwards,” Martin said. The event will be preceded with a professional ten-

nis exhibition match on Aug. 12, featuring former worldranked No. 1 player Jim Courier playing another legend. Before the game, Courier will host a tennis clinic with local young tennis players, and Tennis Nova Scotia will host an exhibition match for amateurs. “Our hope is that it opens up a completely different demographic,” Martin said. “It’s a great way to expose the entire event and experience to a new group of people.” Quoted

Heritage. Groups express interest in acquiring Cape Breton lighthouses

Justice Minister Ross Landry says his department will monitor turnaround times for DNA and forensics analysis at the new labs. metro file

Forensics lab closure cause for concern: Justice minister Shutting down in 2014. Lawyers worried consolidation of RCMP labs could lead to court delays Nova Scotia’s justice minister says he remains concerned the RCMP is planning to close a forensics laboratory in Halifax.

Ross Landry says he’s unhappy about the loss of jobs and he’s disappointed the cut announced last year came after the provincial government completed contract negotiations with the Mounties. A spokeswoman for his department says the RCMP has informed the province it will close the lab in 2014 as part of a national consolidation of six labs into three locations.

Bottom line


The amount of money the RCMP say will be saved by closing the forensic laboratories.

The RCMP announced in May 2012 that labs in Regina, Winnipeg and Halifax will closed and their work will be

handled in Edmonton, Vancouver and Ottawa. Landry says his department plans to monitor whether the remaining labs maintain the existing turnaround times on DNA and forensics analysis. Halifax defence lawyers have said they’re worried the closure will lead to delays and infringe on their clients’ right to a timely trial. the canadian press

Several Cape Breton community groups plan to petition the federal government to obtain 26 lighthouses in the region. Barry MacDonald of the Nova Scotia Lighthouse Preservation Society says there were 548 petitions for lighthouses across Canada, including 92 in Nova Scotia. About 480 active and 490 inactive lighthouses nationwide were declared surplus in 2010, including about 150 in Nova Scotia. Under Ottawa’s Heritage Lighthouse Protection Act, they could be transferred to new owners wishing to take advantage of their heritage designation or tourism potential. The lighthouse preserva-

Dispute over prices

Cape Breton lobster fishermen going back to work Lobster fishermen along the eastern coast of Cape Breton are ready to set their traps and go fishing after six days of staying ashore in a fight for higher prices. Fishermen met earlier Thursday afternoon and agreed to accept a price of

$4.25 per pound. According to fisherman Herb Nash, it’s 25 cents better than the initial offer of $4 but still 75 cents less than what they received in the beginning of the season last year. Nash says while many are disappointed, most will be heading out Friday morning. Lobster fishermen can’t afford to stay ashore any longer since they have only two months in which to sell their product, a release said. Cape Breton Post

Man dies after being struck by van in parking lot Clayton Park strip mall. Victim died in hospital, police say philip croucher

Police say a man has died after being hit by a van in a parking lot in Clayton Park. Just before 6 p.m. on Wednesday, police were called to 287 Lacewood Dr. after a 73-year-old man was hit by a van as it was leaving a parking space near the Lawtons Drugs in the busy strip mall. Police say the victim’s injuries weren’t believed to be serious at the time. He was taken to hospital by para-

medics and ended up dying overnight. “We can’t determine at this time if there was any fault,” said Halifax Regional Police spokesman Const. Pierre Bourdages. “It will be part of the investigation into the collision.” A decision on possible charges hadn’t been determined, he added. Bourdages was also unsure if the victim was struck as the vehicle was backing out of the parking spot, or if it happened as the van began to move forward. Ongoing investigation

Police say an autopsy was scheduled for Thursday.

The campaign brought in $75 million for scholarships, which Dykeman said was one of the most important parts. “(That) now generates probably about another $3 million in scholarships that we can disperse every year,” he said. “It attracts really good students, and it attracts students who are really smart but couldn’t otherwise come to university.” The school received four gifts over $5 million and four over $10 million. A student-learning commons will eventually be added to the Life Sciences Building, Dykeman said, which is an example of “adding value” to existing spots on campus He said it is hoped the campaign will help other universities by showing philanthropists how much can be done by helping an institution. “It allows us to do the extra things for our students that we wouldn’t otherwise be able to do,” he said.

Mayor appears to smoke crack in video: Torstar

Spencer West

Double-amputee completes trip from Edmonton to Calgary Spencer West scaled Mt. Kilimanjaro on his hands last summer but said completing the trek between Edmonton and Calgary was an even greater challenge. The legless man Thursday completed the Free the Children campaign We Walk 4Water, which aimed to raise awareness and funds for clean water in Africa. “I’m tired, my arms are killing me, I’m ready for a few days of sleep, but that last little bit to have those kids cheering for us brought up our energy again,” he said. West used his hands and wheelchair to travel 300 kilometres in 11 days with his two best friends, David Johnson and Alex Meers. The intention of the campaign is to provide 100,000 people with clean water for life, according to West, with a $25 donation providing clean water for one person.

‘False and defamatory’. Lawyer retained by Toronto’s Rob Ford asks how reporters can verify what someone is doing or smoking in a video A cellphone video that appears to show Toronto Mayor Rob Ford smoking crack cocaine is being shopped around that city by a group of men involved in the drug trade. Two Toronto Star reporters have viewed the video, which appears to show Ford sitting in a chair, inhaling from what appears to be a glass crack pipe. Ford is incoherent, trading jibes with an off-camera speaker who goads the clearly impaired mayor by raising topics including Justin Trudeau and the high-school football team Ford coaches. At one point he is heard calling Trudeau a “fag.” Later in the 90-second video he is asked about the football team and he appears to say, “They are just f-----g minorities.” The Star had no way to verify the video, which appears to clearly show Ford in a well-lit room. Attempts to reach Ford and members of his staff were unsuccessful.

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford talks to reporters in his office Thursday. Two Toronto Star reporters have viewed a video appearing to show Ford smoking crack. DAVID RIDER/torstar news service

A lawyer retained by Ford, Dennis Morris, said that Thursday’s publication by the Gawker website of some details related to the video was “false and defamatory.” Morris told the Star that by viewing a video it is impossible to tell what a person is doing. “How can you indicate what the person is actually doing or smoking?” Morris said. Ford’s chief of staff, Mark Twohey, would not listen to questions by the Star on Thursday night and abruptly hung up when the Star called. The video was taken on a smartphone by a person who said he has supplied crack cocaine to the Mayor. Throughout the video Ford’s

eyes are half closed. He lolls back in his chair, sometimes waving his arms around erratically. He raises a lighter in his hand at several points and moves it in a circle motion beneath the glass bowl of the pipe, then inhales deeply. The Star reporters were shown the video on the evening of Friday May 3 in the back of a car parked in an apartment complex in Toronto’s Etobicoke neighbourhood. Both reporters, prior to watching the video, studied numerous city hall-related videos of Ford and to the best of their abilities they separately concluded the man in the video was Mayor Ford. torstar news service

Cave paintings point to early intelligence Big brains. Muchmocked relations may have been more advanced, while human IQ keeps dropping

Coin toss used to break mayoral election tie What do you do when two candidates running for mayor in the Philippines get exactly the same number of votes? You get them to toss a coin. Marvic Feraren and Boyet Py both received

3,236 votes for mayor of San Teodoro town in Mindoro Oriental province in Monday’s elections. The Elections Commissions suggested the two flip a coin five times each, which is allowed under the country’s Election Code to break a tie. Feraren won Tuesday, but not before a second round of coin flipping. They tied in the first round too. the associated press

Sophisticated paintings indicate that Neanderthals could have matched human intelligence, analysts claim. The discovery of “exquisite horses and outlines of bison” in a Spanish cave suggests that mankind’s poorly regarded relations were capable of abstract thought, according to research in the science journal Nature. The artworks were thought to be a product of early humans, but new dating technologies indicate they are more than 40,000 years old and may have originated from before humans lived in Europe. This follows the recent discovery of sophisticated tools and ornaments that contradicted the primitive depiction of Neanderthals. “They could innovate on their own,” said study author Julien Riel-Salvatore of the University of Colorado Denver. “My research suggests that they were a different kind of human, but humans nonetheless.” The Neanderthal brain was larger than man’s, although it was believed that large parts were devoted to vision and simple function,

producing different thought processes. But recent discoveries have led to a new debate on the species’ capacity and even efforts to clone one for public interest purposes. This has had the support from Harvard genetics professor George Church, who claimed that “Neanderthals think differently than we do. They could even be more intelligent than us.” Another assumption about human intelligence was challenged this week by research claiming that IQs are dropping. The well-known Flynn

It ends this week when millions of dollars are likely to change hands as what may be the world’s largest game-worn collection of memorabilia from the world’s best player from the sport’s last great dynasty goes on the auction block. Shawn Chaulk, a quick-tosmile former Newfoundlander whose hoard of everything Wayne Gretzky makes grown men weak in the knees, says

it’s all been nothing more than an attempt to get closer to the game he loves. “When you’re a fan, fans are usually at a distance,” he recently told The Canadian Press in the basement office of his home in Fort McMurray, Alta. The space is a forest of game-used Gretzky hockey sticks, a dressing room of game-worn Gretzky jerseys and a trainer’s bagfull of assorted pucks, gloves, helmets and skates — all touched, used and sweated in by the Great One himself. the canadian press

Supreme Court to rule on Walmart baby case Left in a bathroom stall.

Mother’s Day shooting. Accused brought to court, faces $10 million bond

Bosma case. Police find incinerator on murder suspect’s farm property

As the tally of those wounded in a Mother’s Day parade shooting in New Orleans ticked up to 20, the suspect made his first court appearance on Thursday, remaining silent as a judge set his bond at $10 million US. Prosecutors said a witness picked out a photo of Akein Scott, 19, from a lineup. An arrest affidavit said the unidentified witness told investigators that Scott was the person seen in a surveillance video that police released to the public as they searched for him for three days. The witness also said Scott was carrying a silver-andblack semi-automatic handgun at the shooting scene, according to the affidavit. Scott, shackled and wearing an orange prison jumpsuit, stood by as his court-appointed attorney handled the proceedings. Magistrate Judge Gerard Hansen set Scott’s bond at $10 million — $500,000 on each of the 20 counts in the shooting. Authorities earlier said 19

Attack ads have kids telling Tories to grow up Playing politics. Grade 5 students write letters to PM, compare commercials targeting Trudeau to ‘cyberbullying’ Some Grade 5 students have some advice for Prime Minister Stephen Harper: Stop being mean to Justin Trudeau. Seven students from an Ottawa-area Catholic school have written to Harper asking that he pull Con-

servative attack ads, which began running within hours of Trudeau claiming the Liberal leadership last month. Teacher Natalie Casault said the idea came from the students themselves during a lesson on government last month. To the kids, she said the ads looked just like cyberbullying, which they’d learned about a couple of weeks earlier. The ads feature video of Trudeau doing a mock striptease for a charity event, his head surrounded by fairy dust as a narrator sneeringly recounts his past experi-

ence as a camp counsellor and drama teacher. Casault, who teaches at Ecoles des voyageurs in Orleans, Ont., said she didn’t raise the issue, a student did. “He said, ‘Yeah, they’re really not nice, he did a charity and they’re laughing at him and he looks like a clown and they’re saying he’s just a simple teacher and that’s not fair. They can’t do that, madame, that’s cyberbullying.’” Other students agreed, so Casault suggested they write letters to Harper. One little girl did and read it to the class, which eventually prompted others to write their own. “They said, ‘You know, if it was me right there, I’d be crying.’ And they’re cute because they would say, ‘You know, I think Justin is really sad about this,’” Casault said. the canadian press

Going negative

The letter-writing campaign comes as a new poll suggests the ads targeting Trudeau may have backfired. • The ads were more likely to leave a negative impression about Harper and the Conservatives than about Trudeau and the Liberals, according to The Canadian Press Harris-Decima survey.

Duffy resigns from Conservative caucus Unanswered questions. Senator stepping aside amidst spending scandal Senator Mike Duffy resigned from the Conservative caucus to sit as an independent Thursday night amid a controversy over his housing claims, leav-

ing a host of questions about the nature of his expenses and why the prime minister backed him for so long. The employment status of Stephen Harper’s chief of staff, Nigel Wright, remains unchanged — despite his secret gift to Duffy to help repay the improper expenses. Only a week ago, the Conservative government was hailing Duffy’s leadership for

repaying the funds the Senate said he owed. Senate Leader Majory LeBreton declared the matter closed. But then it came to light that Wright had cut Duffy a personal cheque to cover the repayment in March. Harper’s office characterized it as a personal gift, but this week Duffy called it a loan. The Canadian Press reported Thursday that Duffy

campaigned for the Conservatives during the April 2011 election while claiming to be on Senate business. “Mr. Duffy’s claim that he had secured a bank loan came as a complete surprise. All of the revelations relating to the expenses during the campaign are new,” a government official said on condition of anonymity. the canadian press

Greenhouse gas. Harper says technology is key to reducing emissions Technological change will prove to be the key to cutting greenhouse-gas emissions, Prime Minister Stephen Harper told a blue-chip audience on Thursday. Simply imposing emissions targets or trying to cap economic growth to reduce emissions isn’t going to work, Harper said during a question-and-answer session at the Council on Foreign Relations in New York City. “I am convinced that, over time, we are not going to ef-

fectively tackle emissions unless we develop the lower-emissions technology in energy and other sectors,” he said. “That is the thing that will allow us to square economic growth with emissions reduction and environmental protection. I’m convinced if we cannot square those, we are not going to make progress globally.” Any realistic international agreement to limit emissions has to cover everyone, not just the developed world, he added.

Cambodian factory collapse is another grim moment for global garment industry Rescuers work at the site of a factory collapse in a village south of Phnom Penh, Cambodia on Thursday.

About 50 workers were inside the factory when the ceiling caved in, said police officer Khem Pannara. He said heavy iron equipment stored on the floor above appeared to have caused the collapse. The accident comes about three weeks after a building collapse in Bangladesh killed 1,127 people in the worldwide garment industry’s deadliest disaster.

Letters RE: Mayor Defends Use Of Wartime Prostitution, published May 15


Barbie house opens with controversy The Barbie Dreamhouse Experience, near Berlin’s trendy Alexanderplatz shopping district, is a life-sized house full of Barbie fashion, furniture and accessories. It’s open to the public until Aug. 25 before it moves on to other cities in

Europe. The attraction is not without criticism. A topless woman from female rights group Femen targeted the opening of the Dreamhouse Thursday, holding a burning doll on a crucifix and dozens of other protesters flooded the premises with signs, shouting. METRO

Re-evaluating the dream

“For us, this so-called Dreamhouse symbolizes the beauty craze and the discrimination of women in modern day life. It presents a cliché of the female role in society.” Michael Koschitzki, Socialist Alternative editor told NBC News The protest was supported by other left-wing demonstrators shouting “pink stinks” who were swiftly ejected from the Dreamhouse site by security staff.

May I suggest a proper headline for your article on a Japanese mayor justifying sexual slavery during the Second World War? “Mayor defends use of wartime rape.” In your article you quote the mayor as saying kidnapping, forcible confinement, rape, torture, and beatings were not sex trade, but in Japan were necessary to “maintain discipline.” Let us be clear: torture and sexual abuse are never necessary, and

gaming. Level-sharing with friends, battling “dream monsters” and customizable characters sweeten the pot. (Free)

can never be justified as a means of maintaining discipline. What happened was rape. The use of so called “comfort women” was neither discipline nor sex trade. It was abuse and torture. Tens of thousands of young women were kidnapped as sex slaves by the Japanese army during the Second World War. Many women were teenagers. Many died. Japan has never formally apologized nor compensated for this war crime. It was a war crime. It was torture. It was rape. The women who were abused deserve nothing less than a full apology. So does the world. Catherine Henry, on behalf of Olivia Chow, MP New Democratic Party

SCENE WEEKEND, May 17-20, 2013



With Star Trek Into Darkness set to take movie audiences where no audience has gone before over this long weekend, the Reel Guys thought they would have a look at other movies that explore the final frontier.

Reel Guys


Stars of outer space Film’s final frontier. With Star Trek the must-see movie this weekend, the Reel Guys look back at their favourite flicks from another world Richard: Mark, Into Darkness is the best pure popcorn flick of the year so far. It is state of the art in every way, particularly when it comes to the effects. As great as it looks, I’m a sucker for ’50s B-movie effects like the 40foot tall martian in the low budget 1959 space opera The Angry Red Planet. The campy creature was actually a 15-inch tall puppet made

from elements of a rat, bat, spider, and crab and was later featured on the cover of the Misfits’ album, Walk Among Us. What are some of your favourites? Mark: Interesting you mentioned Angry Red Planet. I saw it when I was 10 at a downtown matinee and still shudder at the scene where the astronaut was turned into lime Jell-O. But when I was 16, Barbarella became my favourite movie set in outer space — that is, Jane Fonda’s cleavage. But if it’s cheese you’re looking for, I want to nominate Mars Needs Women, a made for TV movie from 1967. Basically a beach party flick set in outer space featuring amazons, strippers and secre-


taries, it’s best appreciated late at night with the kind of wine that comes in a box. RC: Box wine has enhanced many a bad movie for me. No wine needed for Moon, a unique and fascinating sci fi film directed by David Bowie’s son, Duncan Jones. Set on a space station, it’s the story of a worker, played by Sam Rockwell, who discovers he may not be alone on his mission. To say anymore would ruin a really well constructed movie that cares more about ideas than special effects. MB: Moon is a classy puzzle movie that owes a lot to Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey, the classiest space movie ever, maybe even too classy for its own good. Is it heret-

ical to say that it bored me a bit? Alien sure didn’t bore me. And its sequels, even the weak ones, kept me excited. But let’s remember that not all space movies are necessarily monster movies. I’m thinking of The Right Stuff and Apollo 13, two films that rightly celebrate the courage and tenacity of the early astronauts. Both very exciting movies, I think. RC: I agree, and let’s not forget In the Shadow of the Moon, a beautifully shot documentary that features real life astronauts like Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong. MB: On a lighter note, let’s not forget Galaxy Quest, the funniest movie to take place in outer space.


Star Trek Into Darkness promises to take movie audiences to another galaxy.

26 Drama

Mud Director. Jeff Nichols Stars. Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon

••••• This slow moving Mississippi river-set movie features infidelity, murder and theft, but at its heart it isn’t really about any of those things. Not really. Instead it’s a story about the things we do for love. When two 14-year-old boys discover a mysterious stranger named Mud (Matthew McConaughey) living on a remote island, they get drawn into a possibly illegal scheme to reunite the loner with his true love Juniper (Reese Witherspoon). Methodical and moody, the film takes its time telling the story, but the performances are stellar and quietly effective. richard crouse

Jordana Brewster lives life in the fast lane Fast & Furious 6. In a high action movie full of muscles and mayhem, actress taps into her maternal side Richard Peckett

Metro World News

There are very few movies where you can use phrases like “oiled bodies” and “torqued to the max” and accurately describe both men and machines — but Fast & Furious 6 is one of them. It’s the series’ latest gear-head film where muscle Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) and the rest of his car-thievin’ gang smash bang and wallop their way through yet another international criminal threat. The sixth instalment brings its hefty carbon footprint to London to stop the evil Brit, Owen Shaw (Luke Evans), with

all the death-defying stunts, explosions and sick-making driving we’ve come to expect from the franchise. Amongst all of the testosterone-fuelled fist pumping and steely looks, there’s the relative calm of Jordana Brewster, who plays Mia Toretto, Vin Diesel’s onscreen sister and linchpin of the “criminal family.” We chat to Jordana about real-life speeding, babies and why guys who drive souped-up cars are “douche bags.” It’s an intense, high-octane movie that frankly gave me heart palpitations. What gets your heart racing? Ah, you know, I’m really claustrophobic, so that’ll get my heart racing. Any bad experiences? I think it’s something that comes with age, and I’m only 33, but it happened in my late 20s: I got in a plane and it felt really enclosed and I started freaking out and I just couldn’t

breathe. You play quite a maternal role in the latest Fast and Furious, has the film made you broody at all? Has it made me broody? Meaning wanting a baby? Yeah. I definitely want kids really soon. I would like two or three, so I better get started and my husband, who is eleven years older than me, is game whenever I’m game. The girls do as much fighting as the guys, are you a little envious that you didn’t get a few more fight scenes? A little bit. That was a sacrifice … I love what the baby brings into the mix. I love that it shows (Diesel’s character) Dom’s sweet vulnerable side. The fact he has a new nephew shows the new dynamic in Mia and Brian’s relationship, but I didn’t get to kick ass like Gal (Gadot), Michelle (Rodriguez), and Gina (Carano).

Catch Jordana Brewster in Fast & Furious 6 in theatres next Friday. handout

I’ve been in quite embarrassingly pathetic scuffles. Have you ever been in a proper fight? A girl slapped me once. I went to an all girls’ school in New York and a girl slapped me in the dark room — I was developing pictures — and she slapped me and I slapped her back. It was a bitch slapping.

Is that the worst girly battle you’ve been in? Actually no, my sister and I would get in really bad fights when we were younger and I would threaten to bite her all the time. So I would bare my teeth and that was my threat…Yeah, we were just really aggressive.

This Hangover is all Alan Zach Galifianakis. The weirdest part of the trio becomes the focal point of this final instalment Ned Ehrbar

Metro World News in Hollywood

What’s one more trip to Las Vegas between friends? The Hangover Part III finds Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms) and loose cannon Alan (Zach Galifianakis) teaming up for one last road trip gone wrong. Only this time, Galifianakis’ Alan goes from comic relief to main character, which is a particularly risky proposition — at least according to Galifianakis. Alan really takes centre stage in this instalment. Yeah, as disheartening as that is (laughs). No, I mean we’ll see if the audience thinks that an Alan storyline is sustainable for a movie — I mean a lot of Alan. There’s

The Hangover Part III opens next Friday. handout

a lot of Alan in this. I was excited because we got to explore Alan a little bit rather than have him be just a one-dimensional character that’s kind of weird and saying random things. In this third instalment I think there’s a little bit more of an emotional arc with him, which I appreciate. It’s more of a story than just jokes with Alan this time. I don’t know at the end of this where Alan goes. I think it’s kind of open-ended, but at least he seems like he’s on the right path. I was going to ask where you see him five years from now. Running the Tea Party. No, that’s just a good-natured joke. I don’t know where Alan would be. Hopefully he’s married, and he probably drives by Phil’s house a lot and honks to see if Phil will come out, and then Phil maybe looks through his blinds to see who it is, if it’s Alan outside. Every other Thursday Phil will come out and say hi to him.

They’ve been billing this as the final instalment. Why is the trilogy the standard for film series? Well, part of it is overstaying your welcome, I think. After the first one I was fine with just leaving well enough alone, to be honest. But then it was so fun to do the movies, and I thought there was more to explore, ultimately. But after the third one ... it’s part of, as I said, not overstaying your welcome, and just the timing of it seems right to not do anything else with this. I’ve never really thought about the trilogy thing. The good thing about the third one is it allows kind of a nice goodbye. With the second one there’s no closure, really. There was an event, they’ll go on with their lives. This one seems like there’s a little bit of closure. The Hangover films have been phenomenally successful. If this one follows suit, do you think you’ll have to try to talk them out of making a fourth one?

Well, I think it’s bad to do movies because of economic gain. As an entertainer or an actor, you want to try to do other things and challenge yourself to try other roles, and it’s time to move on. I think everybody feels that, the director and the other actors — and not out of anything but love. There won’t be a fourth. Speaking of doing new things, you’re currently filming Birdman, a comedy from Alejandro Gonzalez Iñarritu, who’s better known for heavier films. It’s a comedy, and Alejandro hasn’t made one. He’s a great filmmaker, obviously. The little I can tell you about (it)is you kind of know you’re in the hands of a really experienced technician and great filmmaker. It’s been a really great work experience for me. I’m there with really serious actors who’ve done really accomplished work. I think I’m the only one in the cast who’s never won a trophy ...


The best work of his career. -Joe Morgenstern,

Prepping for Star Trek Into Darkness Captain Kirk, Spock and crew are back in Star Trek Into Darkness, battling a terrorist bent on destroying Earth. Besides watching the first Trek film, what more should you do to prepare? Take a look at our top five primers. sam castone Metro World News


Amok Time

Khan or no Khan, Darkness has a formidable foe — Benedict Cumberbatch stars as John Harrison. Genre-nerds already adore the Brit from Sherlock, the newish BBC series, in which he brilliantly solves crimes despite, or because of, what seems like Asperger’s. The actor brings a leonine power, and sexiness, to the well-worn role. Indeed, he’s a sex symbol, despite resembling, in his words, Sid the Sloth from Ice Age, or, in a blogger’s words, “a horse-faced twot.” (Already seen Sherlock? Then see his Stephen Hawking in Hawking).

At the heart of the show, and the movies, is the relationship between Spock and Kirk. One’s logical. The other’s a romantic. But they’d do anything for one another. For proof, watch the 1967 episode Amok Time. Headed to a president’s inauguration, Kirk breaks the rules and diverts his ship to the planet Vulcan, to help Spock mate with his presumed wife. After complications, Kirk appears to die, rendering an uncharacteristically distressed Spock unable to love any other partner.

Assignment: Earth Yes, Earth. The setting of Star Trek Into Darkness may surprise non-fans: Our planet, with a London that doesn’t look entirely different from today’s. Although the series usually takes place in space, the original Star Trek did get back to Earth a number of times. Catch Assignment: Earth, when the crew travels back to the swinging ’60s to meet a James Bondtype, or Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, in which aliens contact humpback whales in San Francisco.

Space Seed and Star Trek II: Wrath of Khan When Star Trek Into Darkness was announced, rumours swirled about the identity of the villain — would it be Khan? Fans hoped so. A genetically engineered, bare-chested freak show (played by Ricardo Montalban), Khan, first seen on the TV series, once controlled much of Earth. When unfrozen in the future, he aims to take over the Enterprise, but is exiled by Kirk. Years later, he seeks revenge — this time, on the big screen, in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. Although the nemesis in Darkness is named John Harrison, there’s a possibility — because the films follow a different timeline — he could somehow morph into, to quote Star Trek II, “Khaaaaan!”

Although it’s hard to pinpoint precisely why Arrested Development failed to connect with many viewers during its initial, three-season, 53-episode run, it seems likely that one reason was the show’s narrative density. While its main thrust was chronicling Michael Bluth’s efforts to corral his wildly dysfunctional family, the series featured countless plot lines that slowly shifted into focus thanks to asides and ever-evolving references that rewarded obsessive attention spans and returning fans rather than firsttime or sporadic viewership. Now that the show is finally back, creator Mitch Hurwitz spared no effort in creating 15 new episodes that are as complex and layered as their predecessors. But even though audiences will enjoy the luxury of sorting through them all at once thanks to their simultaneous release on Netflix May 26, the show’s cast is quick to observe that even they struggled occasionally to wrap their heads around dialogue that might eventually be meaningful in as many as three or four different ways. “I’ll try to explain it clearly but it’ll come out probably really confusing,” confesses Michael Cera, who rejoined the show’s fourth season as a writer as well as a co-star. “But there

was one scene that was like a five-page scene in the computer lab, and different sections of this scene would appear in different episodes. So you’d be actually having to deliver a line that made sense in multiple, different contexts, that actually play against each other, and we’d have to deliver it in a way that tries to work for all three of those. And then you’d see an episode and you have different information and it means something totally different. That was really confusing.” Ironically, Portia de Rossi, who plays Michael’s delusionally well-intentioned sister Lindsay, insists that the structure of the episodes, which follows just one character’s point of view rather than all of them, should actually be easier, not more difficult, for viewers to understand. “It’s easier to digest than the original series, because we were following storylines A, B, C, D, E, and F,” she explains. “Now,

we’re just following this one character, so in a way it’s easier to watch, and we’ve got a little bit more time to tell the story — as much time as we need.” What seems to excite the cast the most is not simply the process of reuniting for more fun, but for the experience of creating something that seems largely unlike anything else that’s been on television — even including in the original show. David Cross, who plays Lindsay’s feckless husband Tobias, says that audiences will thrill at the experience — that is, after they get used to it. “I think it’s going to be a bit of an epiphany or a revelation,” he says. “You’re going to realize, ‘There’s a structure to this that I wasn’t aware of when I started watching.’ That’s going to make everybody triple-excited, and there’s going to be a sense of discovery to it that I think will be really exciting, and really define what TV can do.”

Big networks, big names, big plans What’s changed for FOX, NBC and ABC as they battle for ratings. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Fox network’s new season plans

NBC’s plans for the upcoming television season

Highlights of ABC’s fall schedule

What’s new Jack is back! A signature character from Fox’s history, Kiefer Sutherland’s Jack Bauer returns with 24, at least for a little while. Fox is launching a series of high-profile miniseries, and the first will come next May with a 12-episode run of 24, which went off the air in 2010. The second such series, Wayward Pines, will be a thriller produced by M. Night Shyamalan and starring Matt Dillon, based on the novel Pines.

What’s new A lot. The long-struggling network invested heavily in new programming, and has ordered 17 new series for next season. John Malkovich as Blackbeard. James Spader as a wanted fugitive. Dracula brought to life. A cops drama from the guy who made Law & Order. More supernatural stuff from J.J. Abrams. A cooking show. A quiz show. A home renovation show. If a couple of these make an impression on viewers, NBC will be thrilled.

What’s gone Randy Jackson, for one. The last of the original American Idol judges is leaving with the franchise in a ratings free-fall. Fox was keeping mum on the issue Monday, but Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban may want to avoid long-term leases. Fox programming chief Kevin Reilly said the show will likely revert to a three-judge panel. He blamed format issues more than the judges for this year’s ratings problems.

What’s gone The newsmagazine Rock Center, in a move sure to cause bad blood between NBC’s news and entertainment divisions. Matthew Perry’s star vehicle Go On, failing to recreate that Friends magic. And about two dozen other sitcoms you never watched.

What’s new Tuesday night. ABC is scheduling four of the eight new series on its fall schedule for Tuesday night, making it an entire evening of new shows. That’s a bold move for a network, which usually likes to couple new series with established ones on its schedule. One of them, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., is a crime-fighting series based on a comic book and produced by Joss Whedon. That might even entice — gasp! — some men to watch ABC.

Star power Seth MacFarlane. J.J. Abrams. M. Night Shyamalan. They may not generate celebrity magazine covers (although MacFarlane did host the Oscars this year), but they are the type of brandname creative forces that Fox’s young audience respects. They all have projects coming up on Fox during the next year. Seth MacFarlane

What they need If American Idol is never going to be the dominant force it once was — and that would be asking an awful lot — Fox needs another show that can be attractive to all audiences. Let’s face it. Even if The Following was Fox’s most popular newcomer this year, a show about a serial killer is never going to fill that bill.

Star power Michael J. Fox is a beloved sitcom actor, respected even more for his dignity in handling Parkinson’s Disease. Now he’s essentially turning those real-life experiences into a sitcom, where he will play a sportscaster going back to work. Interestingly, NBC gave Sean Hayes a more prominent spot on a Thursday night schedule geared to broad-appeal comedies, perhaps so Fox won’t feel the pressure to save the network. What they need Somebody to save the network. Big move Revolution moves to Wednesday nights, where it will no longer have the advantage of a big audience tuning in for The Voice. Chicago Fire moves to Tuesday. Moving successful shows to new nights is always risky, perhaps even more so for programs at an early stage in their development.

Michael J. Fox

What’s gone Happy Endings, Body of Proof and Malibu Country. Big move Cutting Dancing With the Stars from two nights to one in the fall, eliminating the Tuesday results show. On its face, that seems a strange decision for what is usually ABC’s most popular show. But the Dancing audience is filled overwhelmingly with older women, and advertisers consider that one of the least valuable demographic groups. ABC entertainment chief Paul Lee said the network will try to cast more dancers popular with a younger audience. Star power James Caan. Well, maybe he was in 1980 or so. But ABC is asking him to largely carry a new show, Back in the Game, where he plays “an opinionated, beer-guzzling ex-athlete who never quite made the cut either as a single father or professional baseball player.” What they need James Caan Viewers. Lee talks about building a brand with sophisticated and emotional shows. That’s nice, but ABC is in the same boat as every other broadcast network not named CBS. It can use a breakout hit or two.

It was instant creative chemistry when Sebu Simonian and Ryan Merchant met through Craigslist a few years ago — which is fortunate, because Merchant was the only one who responded to Simonian’s post. “He was looking for a producer to help him with his solo project,” Simonian says. “He sent me some samples of his songs, which were really good. When we got together, we collaborated immediately.” The pair spent a couple of years penning jingles for TV commercials, but they always Just Breathe

had other projects floating around, too. “We collaborated on all kinds of stuff and putting together ideas,” says Simonian. “We realized all that repertoire was prime material to start a band.” So they did just that, starting the band Capital Cities in 2010 and putting out an EP the following summer. Their debut album, In a Tidal Wave of Mystery, comes out June 11. As for describing their style, Simonian says Michael Jackson, Pink Floyd and The Beatles are among their influences. You could call it

alternative-pop, or techno, or alternative- dance with a blend of upbeat, catchy tunes — or something else altogether. The indefinable quality is “somewhat intentional.” “It doesn’t matter to me what we’re categorized,” Simonian says. “Ryan and I try to make good music. Overall, we definitely like to make it dancey — electronic, in-your-face, fun and upbeat and joyous — but we do try to venture into the dark side sometimes with experimental sound. Sometimes the lyrics take turns, and we try to balance it out with depth and more edgy and dark moments.”

Chloe Sevigny

Sevigny says ‘comfortable shoes’ will chase off Paltrow’s Met Gala blues

Chloe Sevigny thinks Gwyneth Paltrow may be overreacting by claiming she’s through with the Met Gala. (Paltrow has sworn off the swanky New York event after finding this year’s “unfun” and too hot.) “Maybe her sleeves were too tight. If you’re in a dress where you can’t breathe, then you’re not comfortable,” Sevigny tells New York magazine. “You have to wear comfortable

shoes and an outfit you can be OK in.” The most important thing, according to Sevigny, is to not take it all so seriously. “I think it depends on what table you’re at, and who you’re with, and obviously your attitude,” she says. “But it’s a lot of hoopla over not a lot. Everybody thinks it’s so much pressure, and you do the carpet and it’s such a big deal, and it’s just a museum fundraiser, you know?”

Peter Rockwell @therealwineguy

I’ve met winemakers who think they’re rock stars, so I guess it’s only fair that a rock star can think himself a winemaker. Dave Matthews, the man behind the newly released The Dreaming Tree wines, is only the latest celeb to grape it up. The roster of famous names making wine reads like an awards show guest list: Mike Weir, Dan Aykroyd, Francis Ford Coppola, Sting, Wayne Gretzky, Madonna, and Brangelina. While I’d never suggest the others are dialing it in, Matthews has been hands on in choosing his Californian wine partners, and the resulting juice (if you’ll forgive the obvious pun) sings in the glass. The DT 2011 Chardonnay ($16.95 - $19.99) is a buttery chard with woodsy spice that just may have all you “anything but chardonnay” zealots burning your membership cards. Its red sister, The DT 2010 Crush ($16.95 - $19.99), is a mega, merlot-led blend of California North Coast fruit with a rolling flavour of plums, raspberry jam and brown sugar that will duet well with a red meat-themed, long weekend barbecue.

Fucale continues to prove he’s a winner Hot hand. Netminder is racking up the victories and hopes that doesn’t change at Memorial Cup ANDREW RANKIN

Memorial Cup prelims

Friday Saskatoon vs. London, 9 p.m. Saturday Portland vs. Halifax, 8 p.m. Sunday Saskatoon vs. Halifax, 8 p.m.

Zachary Fucale has proved one overriding fact to his head coach this year. “He really knows how to win,” said Dominique Ducharme following a recent practice. It’s not only that the 17-year-old netminder led the Halifax Mooseheads to its first ever QMJHL title with a 16-1 record, it’s the way he did it. He admits that his performances weren’t always stellar. There’s the four-goal period in Game 2 of their semifinal series against Rouyn-Noranda, and the six goals he sacrificed to the same club five days later in Game 4. But in both cases he pulled through, just like he did in the pressure-packed overtime victory he won in Game 3 during the series sweep. “Everyone contributes in their own way,” said Fucale, the highest-ranked junior goalie going into June’s NHL draft. “I have a job and I pride myself on doing it the best I can. It’s really not that complicated for me.” Those closest to the teenager know he’s a committed student of the game who brings a rare combination of poise and

athleticism to the rink. “He’s paying attention to details,” said Ducharme. “He’s really smart, on the ice he has the ability to read the play, he learns quickly and he can apply the things he learns on the ice, those little details to polish his game.” He’s happiest, even joyous when he’s between the pipes, a quality he said he’s come by honestly. “My parents always look at the good side of life and always had a joyous attitude about life.” He’s carried that same mindset to Saskatoon where at the Memorial Cup he knows he’ll be facing the biggest challenge of his young career. “We’re facing the best teams and the games are going to be even tighter. But we’re prepared. We’re going in there as confident as we can.”

Mooseheads’ Ryan Falkenham quietly rising to the occasion QMJHL. Forward stays humble despite making all the right moves Andrew rankin

By now most Herd fans have forgotten about Ryan Falkenham’s two blocked shots in a key moment of the team’s QMJHL semifinal. With the Halifax Mooseheads at home and up 1-0 in the series, they found themselves on the penalty kill in overtime against the RouynNoranda Huskies. In those critical moments, with momentum on the line, Mooseheads head coach Dominique Ducharme sent out his trusty 17-year-old forward. The Halifax native promptly blocked two point-blank rockets, setting the table for Martin Frk’s eventual gamewinner.

“Those were two huge plays. They don’t show up on the score sheet but those are big plays that make you win in the playoffs,” Ducharme said. True to his blue-collar approach, the amiable Halifax native was quick to downplay the praise. “It’s just being sharp, you know,” Falkenham said. “The plays I make are simple plays. Penalties need to be killed, shots need to be blocked. Other players put the puck in the net. Dom is good at getting everyone involved.” There’s little flash in Falkenham’s game. Instead, he uses his adept speed and hockThe mark of a professional

“For a coach, it’s reassuring. You know every night what you’re going to get from Ryan.” Mooseheads head coach Dominique Ducharme on Ryan Falkenham

ey sense to create timely turnovers, blocked shots and hits that look effortless. “He’s always working hard, he’s consistent in always taking care of details,” Ducharme said. He’s great on the PK, he’s got speed, intensity, and he’s smart. After an injury-plagued sophomore season, Falkenham still managed to register 10 goals in 45 games. The five-foot-10, 175 pounder is hungry for more. Ducharme is confident he has it in him to be a 20- to 25-goal scorer. “He’s a solid young man, he’ll be a great leader.” Naturally, Falkenham’s biggest moment of the season arrived last Friday when the Herd won its first QMJHL title. But the real highlight arrived after the hoopla and fan fair died down. “You’re back in the dressing room and you have the (President’s) Cup and you’re with the boys. That stays with you.”

For Matthew Boudreau, there’s only one way to describe how he and the Halifax Mooseheads have been treated since landing in Saskatoon on Wednesday. “We feel like kings right now,” the Mooseheads forward said, after the team’s first skate at the Credit Union Centre on Thursday. “We don’t even take our own bags to the rinks.”

The Mooseheads are in Saskatchewan aiming for juniorhockey supremacy at the fourteam Memorial Cup. They got there in style, taking off from Halifax in a 747 chartered plane. On arrival, the media frenzy started and took direct aim at Mooseheads stars Nathan MacKinnon and Jonathan Drouin, both projected top-five NHL draft picks in June.

The team’s also been taking advantage of some firstrate accommodations. “At our hotel we have so many people taking care of us,” Boudreau said. “We have some private suites for us to just relax. I just looked out the window of the hotel this morning and I can’t believe how flat it is.” As for the host rink, he says everyone on the squad is

enjoying it so far. “It reminds me of Saint John’s rink, but a lot bigger.” Mooseheads’ veteran defenceman Konrad Abeltshauser is loving the venue and can’t wait to get going against Portland Winterhawks on Saturday. “We tested out the ice and the boards, it is a beautiful set up,” he said.

Brad Marchand scored with 4:20 left in the first overtime and the Boston Bruins beat the New York Rangers 3-2 in the first playoff game in 40 years between the Original Six teams. Marchand, Boston’s top goal scorer in the regular season, got his first of the post-season on a pass from Patrice Bergeron.

the crease. The Bruins carried the play throughout overtime. They applied constant pressure, but couldn’t score during a power play when Derek Dorsett was penalized for interference at 2:20 of overtime. Boston nearly won in regulation, but Johnny Boychuk’s shot from the right point clanged off the left post with one-tenth of a second remaining. Then he hit the left post at the other end of the ice at 6:34 of overtime. Zdeno Chara gave Boston a 1-0 lead at 12:23 of the second before Ryan McDonagh tied it with 1.3 seconds left in the period. Derek Stepan put the Rangers ahead 2-1 just 14 seconds into the third period, and Torey Krug tied it on a power play with his first NHL goal in four career games. The Associated Press

March 21 - April 20 This has been a busy week for you, so maybe you need to slow down a bit. Right. And maybe the Sun will rise in the west and the tide won’t come in. Aries never slows down — it’s not in your nature.


April 21 - May 21 Mars in your sign gives you all the energy and ambition you need to make a name for yourself, so go for it. Too often in the past you have waited for other people to take the lead.


May 22 - June 21 The thing you need to realize is that you don’t have to enjoy something to be good at it. If fate points you in a certain direction today then that is the direction you should move.


June 22 - July 23 Listen to what others say you should do today — then do the opposite. You know your mind better than they do so follow what your instincts tell you.


July 24 - Aug. 23 Today, you will be confronted by someone who has more power than you but that must not be allowed to faze you. They may have might on their side but you have right and that’s why you will win in the end.
