To abolish or not to abolish? That is the question Senate. Saskatchewan Party to ask members about scrapping the upper house in wake of expense scandal

A DREAM DAY

Premier Brad Wall says his party will hold a referendum to see whether its members think the Senate should be abolished. A resolution on getting rid of the upper house was defeated in a split decision at the party’s convention last November. But Wall — who supports scrapping the Senate — says a recent expense scandal has prompted some to ask that the issue be revisited. “I’ve indicated what my personal position is, but if we’re now going to try to advance it in some forums on the national stage, or with

other governments, probably the first question I would get asked ... is, ‘How do your members feel about it?”’ said Wall. Only a fraction of party members, about 250 people, voted on the resolution at the convention. There are about 12,000 Saskatchewan Party members. The referendum is to be done over the next few weeks and the results announced in early July. Wall says if the party supports abolishing the Senate, he’ll push the issue at the annual premiers meeting in July and consider moving a constitutional amendment motion in the Saskatchewan legislature this fall. “If we go with a mandate, not just from this particular process but from the people of Saskatchewan ... we could encourage all of the premiers of the country to have a free vote (in their legislatures),”

said Wall. “Maybe really it is time, not just because of the current scandal, but I think just because of what’s been a long-running debate about the Senate.” The RCMP is examining the claims of several senators including Mike Duffy. Duffy left the Conservative caucus after it was revealed that the prime minister’s chief of staff, Nigel Wright, wrote Duffy a $90,000 cheque to repay the senator’s disallowed housing expenses. Wright later resigned. Saskatchewan Sen. Pamela Wallin has “recused” herself from the Conservative caucus over questions about her expenses. A constitutional amendment to abolish the Senate would need the support of two-thirds of the provinces representing at least 50 per cent of the population. THE CANADIAN PRESS

SPCA hoping for barking success Cause for Paws. Organization teams with Shaw TV for inaugural telethon to raise cash, awareness

jane.caulfield@metronews.ca

When it comes to taking care of our furry friends in need, the Saskatoon SPCA relies on community support. And this year, it will be looking for your support in a brand new way with Cause for Paws — the first-ever telethon airing on Shaw TV Saskatoon on Sunday. “It’s an idea that we’ve been wanting to do for a while, we just needed all of the pieces to align,” said Declan McAuley, volunteer and public relations co-ordinator for the SPCA. “It wasn’t until (Shaw) showed up and really came through with that gung-ho spirit that we were really able to do it.” McAuley says the six-hour telethon will be a great way

to engage and educate the public on a variety of petrelated issues. It will also feature success stories and animals currently available for adoption. “Education is a big component. We are going to be talking about responsible pet ownership and perhaps clear up some myths about who we are and what we do,” said McAuley. While there is no set fundraising target for the telethon, McAuley says they are unofficially aiming for $50,000, adding that any amount raised will be a big help. Daniella Ponticelli, executive producer of the telethon, says working with the SPCA to produce the live television event is a labour of love for everyone at Shaw TV Saskatoon. “We all have very personal connections with the SPCA,” said Ponticelli. The event will be aired live from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday. It can also be streamed online through the Shaw TV Saskatoon website. To donate, head to saskatoonspca.com.

Construction workers dig in at gallery site

Construction activity at the site of the future Remai Art Gallery of Saskatchewan in downtown Saskatoon. MORGAN MODJESKI/METRO

Shovels have hit the ground at the site of the Remai Art Gallery of Saskatchewan. Although work on the $71-million gallery started roughly four weeks ago, excavation at the site only started last Friday, officially putting the project in the early stages of construction. “I’m very pleased that the excavation has started and that we’re moving along according to schedule,” said

Jeanna South, special-projects manager with the city. “We’re quite excited to see some very good progress this summer — weather permitting.” She says there will be a noticeable increase in activity at the site and in the surrounding area. “I think what people will probably want to know is when we have some detours and other work that moves

beyond the site, and that will happen on a few occasions,” said South. “But at this time, the work is within the fenced area on the Remai gallery site and it’s going very well.” Jason Aebig, president and trustee board chair of the future gallery, says the start of construction has been a long time coming. “What we’re seeing now at that site is a combination of a great deal of work

over the last three years,” said Aebig. “Now that we’re starting to see some activity at that site, it’s gratifying to know that all that work has been worth it. “For a lot of us, we’re just really excited to see that these plans are coming to fruition.” The official groundbreaking for the gallery is scheduled for June 7.

Mother with incurable lung cancer given ticket to ride Being brave. 42-yearold gets to live her dream of driving a Ford Mustang A dream came true for a 42-year-old Saskatoon woman with incurable lung-cancer on Wednesday afternoon. With the help of Cameco, the Saskatchewan Roughriders, the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency and Vaughn Wyant Automotive Group, Tracy Doell, will get to live her dream of driving a lease-free convertible Ford Mustang for the next 24-months. Doell, who was announced as the new ambassador for the Cameco Touchdown for Dreams program, was all smiles at the Delta Bessborough, where she laid eyes on her new ride. And with a life expectancy of eight to 19 months, she said there’s a motto she lives by. “Every day is a gift,” said Doell. “Every day is a new day, and you have to live it to the fullest as much as you can because life is uncertain and you don’t know what’s going to Passed assessment

Jonathan Huntington, manager of community investment with Cameco said having an impact on someone’s life is the whole idea behind the campaign. “We’re all about trying to make a difference in this community and I know our partners, the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency and the Saskatchewan Roughriders feel the same way — this program touches lives, this program makes a difference.” Doell officially received the keys to her dream car at the Cameco Touchdown for Dreams Gala on Wednesday night where she delivered the keynote address. Every year the Cameco Touchdown for Dreams program grants wishes for five women with a life-threatening diagnosis of cancer. Morgan Modjeski/Metro

Teen faces child porn charges after sex video posted Exploitation. 14-yearold turns himself in to police, will appear in court on June 20 haley ryan

Metro in Halifax

A 14-year-old boy from Preston, N.S., has been charged with making child pornography after police allege he posted a sexual video of himself with another teen online. On April 8, investigators in the RCMP-Halifax Regional Police integrated child exploitation unit say they learned of a video showing a 15-year-old girl performing a consensual sexual act with a 14-year-old boy.

Echoes of Rehtaeh Parsons

• Rehtaeh Parsons, a 17-yearold Cole Harbour, N.S., teen, took her own life in early April, two years after she was allegedly gangraped and then bullied by classmates over a shared photo of the incident. • Glen Canning, Parsons’s father, took to Twitter Wednesday: “Still it didn’t take long in this case as opposed to the 1 ½ (years) + for Rehtaeh’s case. Hard to figure this out.”

“Once it’s been recorded, it becomes child pornography because of the age of the person involved,” said Halifax Regional Police Const. Pierre Bourdages.

Police say the video was taken at a party where alcohol was being consumed, then posted to a social media site. The website deleted the video after police made them aware of the case. “However, given the nature of the Internet we can never really be sure that the video is not anywhere else,” Bourdages said. Police also confiscated the phone with the original video. The youth turned himself in to police on May 24 and was arrested. The 14-year-old is charged with possession and making of child pornography, and making child porn available to others. He has been released on conditions to not contact the victim, use the Internet or a device that can access the web.

Pipe baby’s mom says she couldn’t afford abortion

Dr. Henry Morgentaler, who helped overturn Canada’s abortion law 25 years ago, died Wednesday at his Toronto home. He was 90. To his enemies he was a mass murderer, but to many he was the man who shed light on back-street abortions and put women’s health and choice on the front pages of newspapers, TV screens and radio airwaves.

MADNESS

The mother of the Chinese newborn trapped in a sewer pipe in a stunning ordeal caught on video had raised the initial alarm and was present for the entire two-hour rescue but did not admit giving birth until confronted by police, reports said Wednesday. The 22-year-old woman, whose name was not revealed in state media reports, confessed to police when they asked her to undergo a medical checkup. The woman told police she could not afford an abortion and secretly delivered the child Saturday afternoon in the toilet. She said she tried to catch the baby but he slipped into the sewer line and that she alerted her landlord of the trapped baby after she could not pull the child out. The baby was mostly unhurt, according to local reports. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Crack scandal fascinates U.S. At least they’re paying attention. Many Americans can finally say they know something about Canada America’s fascination with the Rob Ford crack-cocaine scandal is showing no signs of dissipating almost two weeks after news emerged of an alleged cellphone video that appears to show the Toronto mayor sucking on a

crack pipe. NBC’s The Today Show featured a segment Wednesday on the latest developments in the scandal that’s engulfed Ford’s administration, while an array of different U.S. and international news outlets are covering each and every twist and turn in the saga. “Any time you have to hold a press conference and say: ‘I don’t smoke crack’ — not a good day,” “Today” co-host Savannah Guthrie said of the show’s report from Toronto. Ford has called the crack-

smoking accusations against him “ridiculous” and said the alleged video doesn’t exist. But interest in the story has only intensified in the U.S. amid an exodus of Ford employees this week and a reported tip to one of the mayor’s closest staff that a young man could have been killed in relation to the alleged video. “Murder Now Part of Toronto Mayor Rob Ford’s Crack Cocaine Video Scandal,” shrieked a headline this week on the Hollywood

Reporter website. “Was Someone Murdered For The Rob Ford Crack Video?” asked another in New York magazine. Toronto police, for their part, have reportedly said their investigation of the matter isn’t a homicide probe. The Atlantic, meantime, poked fun at Ford’s denial of crack-cocaine use. “I did not have smoking relations with that crack pipe,” a post on the mag’s website jokingly quoted Ford as saying.

Control, delete

Office records in danger: Sources Emails and telephone records in Toronto Mayor Rob Ford’s office are in danger of disappearing, Torstar News Service has learned. The electronic records, which may reveal

knowledge of discussions of the video scandal, were ordered destroyed this week. Sources say people who were told to delete the records are balking at the order. One source Torstar spoke to was alarmed at the potential loss of “evidence of attempts” to retrieve a video that appears to show Ford doing drugs and making a homophobic slur. TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

In the fall of 2008, then mayoral candidate Gregor Robertson took some heat when it was discovered that he had a $173 unpaid fine for travelling two zones on SkyTrain on a one-zone fare. Robertson had planned to challenge the fine, but ended up paying it ahead of the civic election, which he won handily.

Toronto

The latest in a string of Mayor Rob Ford scandals started with the Toronto Star and Gawker reporting that there is a video appearing to show Mayor Rob Ford smoking crack and muttering “I’m f---ing right-wing,” calling Justin Trudeau a “fag,” and calling the high school football players he coached “just f---ing minorities.”

Unlike his predecessor, the current mayor of Halifax is so far scandal-free. The only whiff of controversy came just after Mike Savage was sworn in, when he revealed he used his campaign funds to pay himself a $10,000 monthly stipend for the three months after he quit his regular marketing job to run for office. It didn’t contravene any campaignfinancing laws.

Ottawa

Saskatoon Regina Regina Mayor Michael Fougere is squeaky clean, having been in office for about seven months.

When first elected as mayor in 2003, Saskatoon’s Don Atchison caused a stir when he insisted that people – from residents to media to office staff — had to dress in semiformal (as in, a tie) attire to meet with him in his office.

Calgary

In 2011, popular Calgary mayor Naheed Nenshi accepted a flight to Toronto paid for by a private company to speak at a symposium. No conflict of interest was found. This year, many raised eyebrows at a $400-per-ticket, closedto-public event Nenshi held to launch his upcoming civic campaign.

Halifax

Mayor Jim Watson, a self-described “boring” mayor, has been criticized for engaging in semi-frequent “Twitter fights” with outspoken constituents.

Montreal London

Mayor Joe Fontana was charged in November with fraud under $5,000, breach of trust by a public officer and uttering forged documents after an RCMP investigation. He is accused of using a $1,700 federal government cheque to cover a room deposit for his son’s 2005 wedding reception. Fontana denies the allegations, which have not been proven in court.

Montreal is currently governed by interim mayor Michael Applebaum, pictured, who took power after Gérald Tremblay resigned in November amid the Quebec corruption inquiry. There was testimony that Tremblay was aware of his party’s alleged illegal financing and price-fixing in the construction industry, but did nothing to stop it. Tremblay denies he was aware of wrongdoing.

Everest. Octogenarian gives up bid to be oldest man to climb mountain An 81-year-old Nepalese man has abandoned his attempt to climb Mount Everest, leaving a Japanese mountaineer with the record as the oldest person to scale the world’s highest mountain. A team member said Wednesday Min Bahadur Sherchan turned back Tuesday because weather conditions were worsening late in the spring climbing season for the Himalayas. He would have made the attempt sooner but had funding problems that were resolved only last Germany

week. Sherchan became the oldest Everest climber in 2008 at age 76. He held the record until last week, when 80-year-old Japanese climber Yuichiro Miura scaled the mountain. Miura, who returned to Tokyo on Thursday after his successful climb on May 23, expressed sympathy for Sherchan, saying he faced difficult odds due to the brief climbing window he was facing.

Hundreds more flocked to the square outside the building as Vincent Autin, 40, and his 30-year-old partner, Bruno Boileau, were wed.

MPs, parties face big CRTC fines Robocalls. Regulator dishes out $369,000 in penalties after investigation into campaign practices Political parties, elected officials and the telemarketer used by the elusive “Pierre Poutine” to make fraudulent telephone calls during the 2011 federal election have been slapped with hefty fines for breaking the rules for robocalls. The CRTC made the announcement Wednesday that it has dished out $369,000 in penalties as part of an investigation into the use of robocalls. The regulator also hinted that more fines are coming. The federal Conservatives and NDP, Ontario’s Progressive Conservatives, Alberta’s Wildrose party, Liberal MP Marc Garneau, Conservative MP Blake Richards and Edmontonbased RackNine Inc. were all fined for various offences. The penalties run from a few thousand dollars for Garneau up to $90,000 for Wildrose — the largest amount ever levied against a political party by the CRTC. Wildrose acknowledged the fine last week. So far, the regulator says, Wildrose, the Ontario Conservatives, the NDP, RackNine and Garneau have all paid their fines. The federal Conservative party, which was fined $78,000, and Richards, who was fined $14,400, have yet to pay and have 30 days to do so. “We appreciate the co-operation we received during our investigations,” CRTC chief compliance officer Andrea

Rosen said in a statement. “We expect political party associations and candidates who are running for office to put appropriate safeguards in place to ensure compliance with the Unsolicited Telecommunications Rules in future campaigns.” Fred DeLorey, a Conservative party spokesman, said the fine would be paid Wednesday. “We appreciate that the CRTC is clarifying rules for all federal political parties and applying them across the board,” he said in a statement. “We co-operated fully with the CRTC when this matter was brought to our attention by meeting with them and providing all documents they requested. “We will be paying the fine today and we will be seeking

But the other fines came as a surprise. The Conservative party was fined for a robocall campaign in Saskatchewan between Jan. 31 and Feb. 1 related to proposed changes to riding boundaries.

Khadr moved to Alberta jail after threats on life Former Guantanamo detainee Omar Khadr woke up in an Alberta prison Wednesday after months in isolation at a penitentiary in Ontario where an inmate had threatened his life, The Canadian Press learned. Khadr was flown to the Edmonton institution Tuesday, potentially ending a situation in which he had been deprived of prison programming that complicated efforts to seek parole, his lawyer Dennis Edney confirmed. “Hopefully, this is a positive step in his long journey to freedom,” the Edmontonbased Edney said. The transfer allows Khadr to be closer to his lawyer and should obviate concerns about any negative influence from his family in Toronto, some of whom expressed sympathy for al-Qaida several years ago. The Toronto-born Khadr, 26, was transferred to Canada last September to serve out the remainder of an eight-year sentence handed down by an American military commission for war crimes he pleaded guilty to

committing as a 15-year-old in Afghanistan. He spent the next several months in segregation in Millhaven penitentiary west of Kingston, classified as a maximum-security inmate even though he was considered minimum security before leaving Guantanamo. Khadr was finally allowed onto the range in February. In March, prison authorities asked him to work on the food line, handing out but-

ter to other prisoners. When an inmate asked for more, Khadr refused. “This guy threatened to stab Omar,” Edney said in an interview. As a result, authorities moved him back to solitary confinement, where he remained in his cell for at least 23 hours a day. “This is someone who has just spent 10 years of his life in that hellhole that is Guantanamo Bay,” Edney said. According to Correctional Service Canada, Khadr was eligible for day parole in January, but he has yet to have a hearing. He is also eligible for full parole on July 1. Edney said stringent rules around the “hole” made it difficult for the prisoner to take part in programming, something a parole board would want to see in considering whether to grant him any early release. “Nothing works for this kid,” Edney said Tuesday ahead of the transfer, adding Khadr was “just desperate” to get on with his life. “He tells me it’s horrible in prison.” the canadian press

Suicide claims. Quebec judge who murdered wife has appeal dismissed A retired Quebec judge sentenced to life in prison for murdering his wife has failed to have his conviction overturned. The Quebec Court of Appeal announced Wednesday it has dismissed an appeal by Jacques Delisle, who was found guilty last June of first-degree murder. Delisle, who spent nearly a quarter-century on the bench, is believed to be the first Canadian judge to ever stand trial for murder. A jury found him guilty in the shooting death of MarieNicole Rainville in November 2009. Delisle, who is in his late 70s, was given a life sentence without possibility of parole for 25 years. Delisle maintained his wife was in poor health and that her death was a suicide. She died of a bullet to the head. The Crown argued during Delisle’s month-long trial that Mickey-Mouse bomb

Worker arrested in connection with Disneyland blast Police arrested a Disneyland employee on suspicion of putting a so-called dry ice bomb in a theme park trash can where it exploded, authorities said Wednesday.

Delisle’s lawyer argued there were procedural errors that led to the guilty verdict. But in a 41-page ruling released Wednesday, the province’s highest court said the former magistrate failed to show the verdict was unreasonable. • As for the decision to convict on a first-degree murder charge as opposed to a lesser charge, the appeals court ruled that given Delisle was planning a life with his mistress, the verdict was one a jury could reasonably render.

Repeated warnings. Eritrea diplomat ousted over ‘diaspora tax’ levy The Canadian government is expelling the head of Eritrea’s consulate in Toronto over the levying of a “diaspora tax” on Eritrean expatriates A release from Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird says Semere Ghebremariam O. Micael has been declared persona non grata and must leave by next Wednesday. The release says Canada has repeatedly warned Eritrea to “respect international sanctions and Canadian law.” In December 2011 the

United Nations Security Council adopted a resolution that condemned Eritrea’s use of a tax on expatriates to help the country buy weapons and arm opposition groups. And last fall Canada issued stiff warnings about a two-percent levy being solicited by the Eritrean consulate in Toronto. The government says Eritrea is welcome to propose a new candidate for their consular office, but says that person must be prepared to play by the rules. the canadian press

Brian McArdle had not worked after a stroke left him paralyzed and partially blind. The former security guard, 57, could not eat by himself, but as part of the U.K. austerity campaign, McArdle was assessed, found fit to work and his support was stopped. The following day he died of a heart attack. Such tragedies form the premise of The Body Economic: Why Austerity Kills, a startling new book from epidemiologists David Stuckler and

David Stuckler, co-author of The Body Economic: Why Austerity Kills

Sanjay Basu. They mined data sets from the past century and across the world, and found the numbers show the hidden cost of health spending cuts. “What we learned is that recessions are neutral to health. What matters is how politicians respond,” Stuckler told Metro. “When they make deep cuts to vital social protection systems it can turn social hardship into severe epidemics.” No example is starker than Greece, where a 40-per-cent cut to health spending has al-

lowed HIV infection rates to double. Mosquito-spraying programs were stopped, and malaria returned after being controlled since the 1970s. Over 200 medicines vanished from pharmacies as budgets shrank. “The evidence of a causal link is compelling,” said Professor

Martin McKee of the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine. A less visible mental health crisis is also growing. The World Health Organization report a 40-per-cent rise in suicides in Italy between 2007 and 2010, with local studies attrib-

uting most to economic issues. Stuckler’s research found that in the EU and U.S. since 2007, the number of suicides has been 10,000 higher than historic averages. The author denies such increases are a normal part of an economic downturn.

Not every country chose austerity, and no health crisis occurred in Iceland, where people voted to keep healthcare access rather than bail out their failing banks. It also established a body to monitor government responses to economic problems, and Stuckler wants similar accountability in other countries. Back in the UK, the first lawsuits have been served against the government for health cuts that backfired — meaning the policymakers behind austerity could also pay a price.

Inundated inbox. Gmail design aims to tame flood of messages Google has unveiled a new Gmail interface for users who struggle to cope with overwhelming torrents of messages. The new design, which Google says is being rolled out to users over the next few weeks, automatically sorts emails into a handful of separate tabs along the top of the inbox: • Primary — for messages from friends and family. • Social — for emails from social networks, media-sharing sites and online dating services. • Promotions — for regular mail-outs from retailers, daily-

deal sites and other businesses.

• Updates — storage for noti-

fications and confirmations involving receipts, bills, and financial statements. • Forums — for emails from online groups, discussion boards, and mailing lists. Users can remove one or more of the tabs and control where emails from certain senders get routed. The new interface, which can be turned off, will also be available on the mobile Gmail apps for Android devices, the iPhone and iPad. The Associated Press

Censorship. Singapore requires news websites to be licensed Singapore’s government says a new policy will require online news websites to be licensed, a move that is being criticized as a form of censorship in a country where media outlets are already strictly controlled.

They also will be required to remove content found to be in breach of MDA

Do Look Back in Anger Grumpy young men. Production explores issues of class and redemption BACKSTAGE PASS

Simon Hiatt saskatoon@metronews.ca

If you’ve encountered Saskatoon actor Rob van Meenen recently and he seemed a little off, don’t take it personally. It likely has more to do with the preparations for his latest role than anything you may have done. “During the process I’ve found that my fuse has shortened, and I don’t know if that means I’m doing a good job in rehearsal, but not a good job of leaving rehearsal perhaps,” van Meenen said. Van Meenen stars as Jimmy in Look Back in Anger, a character who he describes as a “tortured soul” who constantly lashes out at his upper-class wife and the roommate with whom they share their dingy apartment. The character may be extremely negative, but the chance to finally stage this production leaves van Meenen with nothing but good feelings. “It was a play that was gnawing away inside me, I Had to do it

“It was a play that was gnawing away inside me.” Rob van Meenen, actor who plays ‘tortured soul’ Jimmy in Look Back in Anger.

wanted to do it since the first time I read it,” van Meenen said. However, he had some trouble convincing his choice for director, Pamela Haig Bartley, to lead the production. He says she initially viewed the work as too misogynistic. “I said ‘no’ the first time they asked me,” Haig Bartley said. “But then I decided it would be a really good challenge and quite fascinating to have a female director for this play.” Written by John Osborne and set in post-Second World War London, Look Back in Anger is considered the first of the “angry young men” plays, and was first produced in 1956 to mixed reviews, due to its lower class setting and darker material. Haig Bartley says one of the reasons she changed her mind about taking on the project is she sees echoes of the play’s themes in what is happening in these modern times. “It ties into the notion of the 99 per cent, the notion of people who are feeling lost,” Haig Bartley said. “But there are also glimmers of redemption in Jimmy.” The play also presented the unique opportunity for the drama professor; with the exception of Blaine Hart who plays Colonel Redfern, she has taught everyone involved in the production. “It’s really fun to work with them as professionals. “It’s very different because when you’re directing in an institution there’s a huge teaching component. We can just focus on problem solving and making it a strong production.” Look Back in Anger runs through June 9 at Studio 914, located at 914 20th St. W. For tickets call (306) 667-1221.

Jules Mercier and Rob van Meenen rehearse a scene from Brick and Mortar Theatre Company’s production of Look Back in Anger, which runs through June 9 at Studio 914. SIMON HIATT/FOR METRO ‘Prove us wrong’

Production afirstfor Saskatoon Although it is regarded as highly influential and

important, the cast and crew believe this is the first time the play has been performed here. “People know of it, but we haven’t been able to find a record of it being performed here,” said director Pamela

Haig Bartley. “That will be the challenge for the audience, prove us wrong; ‘Were you in this production or have you ever seen it before?’” van Meenen added with a laugh.

Metro World News

Dave Franco is known as two things: James Franco’s little brother and an on-screen jerk. In 21 Jump Street, he played an entitled high school drug dealer. In Warm Bodies he was the bitter boyfriend of a girl in love with a zombie. “I promise this is not a representation of me,” Franco says. “At first it was really fun and liberating playing something outside of myself, to be mean. But after a while, not only have I exhausted this kind of role, but people start thinking this is how I really am. I promise I’m a nice guy.” In Now You See Me, a big-

with a playing card,” he reveals. “I wanted it to look realistic.” Though the film’s cast is filled with big names, it’s hard to be star-struck when your brother is James Franco. He claims his brother didn’t get him into the business. “His manager is the one who dragged me into this whole mess,” he says. “My brother has been very supportive. But we don’t talk about acting all that much. That said, he did tell me to be patient; to wait for projects I’m genuinely passionate about.” “True devotees of le Carré . . . appreciate that he’s best read slowly, savoured—like a peaty malt—sip by sip, sentence by — THE HERALD (U.K.) sentence.” “Part vintage John le Carré and part Alfred Hitchcock . . . the suspense in Our Kind of Traitor is genuine and nerve-racking.” —MICHIKO KAKUTANI, THE NEW YORK TIMES

The production style introduced new aspects that he needed to get used to. “Louis Leterrier is a very visual director, and a lot of the scenes have multiple cameras flying about, circling around you,” Franco says. “Most of the time you have no idea whether or not the camera is catching you.” He also had to learn card tricks. “I can now cut a banana

CARRÉ

A COUNTER-TERRORIST OPERATION, code-named Wildlife, is being mounted on the British crown colony of Gibraltar. Its purpose: to capture and abduct a highvalue jihadist arms buyer. Its authors: an ambitious Foreign Office minister, a private defense contractor who is also his bosom friend, and a shady American CIA operative of the evangelical far right. So delicate is the operation that even the minister’s private secretary, Toby Bell, is not cleared for it.

A DELICATE TRUTH

A NOVEL

Three years later, a disgraced Special Forces soldier delivers a message from the dead. Was Operation Wildlife the success it was cracked up to be—or a human tragedy that was ruthlessly covered up? Summoned by Sir Christopher (“Kit”) Probyn, retired British diplomat, to his decaying Cornish manor house, and closely observed by Kit’s daughter, Emily, Toby must choose between his conscience and duty to his Service. If the only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing, how can he keep silent?

On playing younger

Franco is 27 years old, but looks like a kid. That’s why he often gets roles playing younger characters. • Quote. “I don’t love it,” he says, “but it’s more about the role than the age. Everyone always says,

especially in the business, it’s great to look a lot younger than you are, for longevity’s sake. But sometimes I just want to look my damn age and play a character my age. I don’t want to play high school again.”

Daniel the boy becomes Radcliffe the man

James Lipton

Daniel Radcliffe isn’t opposed to more entries in the Harry Potter franchise, but don’t expect him to suit up as the title character anymore — even if J.K. Rowling were to write it. “No more schoolboy stuff,” he tells Time Out. “A cameo as Harry’s dad? That would be perfect.”

James Lipton reveals his surprising past — pimping in Paris Long before he hosted Inside the Actors Studio, James Lipton enjoyed a brief but profitable stint as a pimp in Paris, he admits to Parade magazine. “It was only a few years after (the Second World War). Paris

was different then, still poor,” he says, explaining that running a bordello gave him enough to live off of for a year. “I did a roaring business. That’s how I lived. I was going through my rites of passage, no ques-

tion about it. It was a great year of my life.” Lipton’s feelings about the practice of prostitution have clearly changed, though: “I think if you can’t earn it on your own, then you don’t deserve it.”

Bynes targets cop in most recent Twitter tirade Amanda Bynes took a break from starting fights with other celebrities on Twitter to brag about how things are going with her latest legal troubles. “My lawyer is getting my case dropped,” she tweeted. The lawsuit-happy starlet also addressed the police officer she claimed sexually

harassed her during her arrest last week: “His punishment will be being the cop who sexually harassed someone who would never find him handsome enough to be my boyfriend. That’s worse than any time in jail,” she wrote. “But I am suing him for money compensation. I love having more money in my bank!” The police, though, don’t seem too concerned about Bynes’ suit. “NYPD Internal Affairs investigators have found no evidence to corroborate Ms. Bynes’ allegations,” a spokesman tells E! News.

Mayer and Perry get tongues wagging again Two months after once again breaking up with Katy Perry, John Mayer has apparently smoothed things over with the Firework singer enough to make the guest list for her Memorial Day party at her new Hollywood Hills home, according to Us Weekly. “They seem to be back together — or back together-ish,” a source says. “They were very flirty and having a really good time together. They have good chemistry.”

What the makeup artist says

“It’s all about creating a base that grips,” explains LA-based makeup artist Mélanie Inglessis. “For lipstick that lasts and doesn’t bleed, apply a light layer of concealer or powder to your lips before adding colour. Or use a lip pencil that is the same colour as your lipstick. Draw the entire lip and colour it inside. The pencil is matte and creates a solid base.”

“Glitter may be a summer festival must, but don’t use it on your eyelids. It’s a loose particle, so you’d need a creamy, sticky base underneath to press the glitter on. And keep away from creamy eye shadow, as this is going to smudge,” warns Inglessis. She recommends products that have a long-lasting effect such as a matte eye shadow or waterproof mascara. Another trick to stop things from melting away is to dab some concealer under the eyes: “The more your skin is bare, the more oil it has. The concealer will act like a shield and keep things in place,” she adds.

What the makeup artist says

“Rule number one: use the right foundation for your skin type. If you have oily skin, don’t go for a liquid foundation but one that’s powder based,” suggests Inglessis. “A face primer will give you a good base on which to apply a foundation. It absorbs excess oil and mattifies your skin, ensuring that makeup doesn’t move.”

Bright ideas for your dining room A reader asks: I am looking for a chandelier to hang over my traditional dining table. Does it have to be the traditional brass/crystal style light fixture? DESIGN CENTRE

Karl Lohnes home@metronews.ca

Lofty Style

Consider choosing an over-the-table light fixture that is more reflective of your space rather than worrying about matching the table and chairs below. The juxtaposition of a modern light fixture over an old table can add an interesting and eclectic look to your dining area. Consider looking at the architectural design of your space. In an arts and crafts home choose a light fixture with that style; in a loft choose something modern; in a Victorian home choose a period style of light. Matching the light fixture to your decor will add some validity to your choice and take the guesswork out of choosing a style not directly related to your dining table. Here’s a few classic examples; all at $200 or less. Try hanging one of these over a traditional dining table and listen to your dinner guests’ oohs and ahhs.

Victorian Style

Raw metals, exposed rivets and soldered seams add true industrial style above the table. Victory Pendant, $200, CB2.com.

Drama, drama, drama adds theatrical elements to high ceilings and ornate mouldings. Concerto 6-light Black Chandelier, $180, homedepot.ca.

Arts & Crafts Hand-crafted-looking metal and oiled bronze finishing adds to the worker arts-and-craft-style house. Add decorative square shades for a designer touch. Jamestown 5-light Chandelier, $180, livinglighting.com.

Lamp designs inspired by Japanese paper lanterns light up modern decor Akari. The lamps are popping up everywhere — from painter Georgia O’Keeffe’s home in New Mexico to Tony Stark’s bedroom in Iron Man 3 The round, white, paper light shades sold at Ikea for $5 are a familiar item in contemporary interior design. But these inexpensive lanterns are knockoffs of light sculptures created by the renowned artist Isamu Noguchi in the early 1950s. The Noguchi lamps — called akari, the Japanese word for light — were inspired by traditional Japanese lanterns used in ancestor worship. Over the decades, the akari became classics of mid20th century modern home decor. Noguchi’s original designs are still handmade in Japan; they come in a variety of colours and dozens of geometric designs — including the wide-

ly imitated white sphere — and range in price from $100 to $1,000. The story of how the late Noguchi came to create akari is rooted in the recovery of Japan’s post-SecondWorld-War economy and the cross-cultural currents that influenced his spare, bold, modernist esthetics. Noguchi’s mother was American; his father Japanese. They never married. Born in 1904, Noguchi spent years in both countries during his youth. After the Second World War, he was greatly admired by the art and design community in Japan, and at some point met the mayor of the town of Gifu, where local industry centred around making lanterns for ancestry worship, using paper from mulberry trees. “The mayor asked Noguchi, ‘Can you help us resurrect our lantern business?’” said Jenny Dixon, director of the Noguchi Museum in Long Island City, N.Y. “That’s how

the akari were first produced. They were exported as an economic product and were wellreceived by the design community.” She added that Noguchi “papered them sculpturally. He didn’t call them lanterns or lamps; he called them light sculptures.” Noguchi’s concept “stood in sharp contrast to 1950s contemporary, modern, efficient lighting trends,” said Peter Barna, provost of Pratt Institute, the art and design college in Brooklyn. Popular lighting options of the day included track lights, adjustable desk lamps and “pole lamps with conical shades,” added Barna, a former president of an international lighting design firm. There are hanging lamps, as well as table lamps and floor lamps with metal legs or small, black, circular bases. Many appear breathtakingly elegant; others have a whimsical, futuristic look.

Only a few stones away from singing Kumbaya by the fire DIY ideas. Bring the feeling of the cottage home this summer with your own stone fire pit

Beth J. Harpaz/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

As summertime approaches, people start spending more of their days and nights outdoors, especially for summer dining and entertaining. Building a fire pit in your backyard creates a focal point in your outdoor design and adds warmth, light and ambiance, making your space a natural gathering spot for socializing, entertaining and relaxing. With a few tips, Indoors Out can help you build the perfect fire pit to complement your social schedule this summer. Step 1: Check building codes in your area Before you begin building a fire pit, make sure that you are aware of building codes and regulations. Choose an area that is away from your house

and any low-hanging trees. You’ll also need to take precautions when digging holes so that you don’t hit any utility lines. Step 2: Purchase stone Decide on a location for the fire pit and determine its size and shape. Using these measurements, select your materials from a stone yard. To save time, choose a pre-sorted premium stone such as palletized stone, which are uniform in size, shape and quality. Step 3: Form a circle Lay your stone pavers in a circle in the approximate size and shape of your fire pit. Most fire pits are typically about 36 to 44 inches in diameter. Step 4: Dig your hole Dig a hole about 12 inches deep once you’ve formed your circle. Step 5: Fill with sand Pour sand into the bottom of the hole and pack until its level.

Step 6: Lay your stones Start laying your wall stones around the outside of the hole. Continue to stack the stones until they are about 12 inches above the ground. Step 7: Fill with sand Pour a layer of sand into the ring of stones so that it covers the first layer. This should be approximately four inches deep. Your fire pit is now ready to try out at your next get together. Indoors Out airs weekdays at 3 p.m. ET/12 p.m. PT on DIY Network Canada

Add water and wine to same skillet. Season with salt and pepper and bring to a boil. Place salmon steaks in skillet; simmer for 6 minutes over low, turning once. Add julienned vegetables to skillet and cook for another 2 minutes until salmon feels firm.

Cookbook of the Week

Gone fishing “I never met a fish I didn’t like,” Jeff Morrison of Ottawa states with conviction. The avid sportsman, known as The Outdoors Guy in his blog, can now add author to his resumé with not one but two cookbooks coming out June 1 — Canadian Fishing Cookbook and Canadian Outdoor Cookbook. Morrison has travelled the nation pursuing his passion for catching and eating just about every type of fish and seafood imaginable. Consequently, his Fishing Cookbook, “is sort of like reading through a diary of my outdoor life.” While some dishes in the book may be more common in the regions where the fish originates — Maritime cod, northern pike, Pacific halibut, — most are accessible in fresh or frozen versions at supermarkets and fishmongers across the country. Other featured species — walleye, bass and trout, for example — are naturally found coast to coast. The Canadian Press

Brent Seabrook sent a wrist shot past goalie Jimmy Howard’s glove 3:35 into overtime to give the Chicago Blackhawks a 2-1 victory over the Detroit Red Wings in Game 7 of their second-round playoff series on Wednesday night. The Blackhawks, who had the best record in the NHL

regular season, rallied from a 3-1 series deficit to reach the Western Conference final against the defending Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings. For just the second time in NHL history, the final four teams remaining in the play-

offs are the four most recent Stanley Cup winners. Chicago captured the Cup in 2010. Seabrook picked up a loose puck and skated in on Howard through the middle of the ice, with Detroit defenceman Niklas Kronwall in front of him. His shot hit Kronwall’s leg before it sailed into the left side of the net for the defenceman’s first goal of the postseason. “I was just trying to step up,” Seabrook said. “The coaches have been on me all year to get up and jump into the play.” The sellout crowd of 22,103 roared as Seabrook skated over to the boards and was mobbed

by his delirious teammates. Howard put his arm around Kronwall, who was down on one knee, and tried to console him while the Blackhawks celebrated. It was quite a change from the end of the third period, when the Blackhawks thought they had scored the go-ahead goal. But it was waved off with less than two minutes remaining by referee Stephen Walkom, who called a pair of penalties behind the play. Henrik Zetterberg scored the tying goal in the third period for Detroit. Howard finished with 33 saves.

Melky Cabrera had three hits, including a two-run single, and four Toronto pitchers combined on a four-hitter to lead the Blue Jays past the Atlanta Braves 3-0 on Wednesday night. Last-place Toronto went with a pitcher-bycommittee approach to fill a hole in the rotation. Esmil Rogers lasted 3 1/3 innings in his first start since 2011, and two pitchers just up from the minors shut down the Braves. Juan Perez (1-0) went 2 2/3 innings, Neil Wagner got through the seventh and eighth, and Casey Janssen earned his 11th save with a 1-2-3 ninth. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Happy days are over

Iggy’s deadline decision on trial vs. Bruins

Jarome Iginla GETTY IMAGES

Faced with the choice of his hockey life, Jarome Iginla figured he couldn’t go wrong. As the hours before the March 28 trade deadline ticked away and the suitors for the Calgary Flames’ captain dwindled down to Boston and Pittsburgh, the six-time all-star understood both franchises provided him a chance to win his first Stanley Cup. Only one, however, included playing with good friend Sidney Crosby. And when the Penguins lured Iginla east the ripple effect forced the Bruins

to a backup plan that turned out better than they imagined. Spurned by Iginla, the Bruins acquired Jaromir Jagr from Dallas hours later. Now the two clubs find themselves in each other’s way as the Eastern Conference finals get set to begin Saturday. “I knew that there was a possibility this would be the case,” Iginla said. While it appeared for a few hours the Bruins had the inside track, Iginla insists he didn’t back out of a deal with Boston when the Pens

swooped in at the last minute. “I never said yes and then no,” Iginla said. Though the Bruins initially disagreed — claiming an agreement was in place — they have since moved on. “I always thought you had to go through them to get to where we want to go at some point,” Boston general manager Peter Chiarelli said. “It’s been well chronicled, the Iginla stuff and the Jagr stuff, so we’re happy with who we got.” So are the Penguins.

Coach Dan Bylsma placed Iginla on a second line with reigning NHL MVP Evgeni Malkin and all-star forward James Neal for the playoffs and the results have been sublime. Iginla has rolled up four goals and eight assists in the opening two rounds of the playoffs. “You want to play together and play hard and not disrupt (their chemistry),” Iginla said. “So you find different places to go and contribute. ... I’ve been enjoying it and I think it’s been getting better and better.” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
