Universities lose millions for building maintenance Big repairs. Money for basic maintenance trimmed in budget RYAN TUMILTY

With hundreds of millions of dollars in backlogs, Edmonton’s post-secondary institutions will have less money this year to repair aging buildings. Post-secondary institutions suffered cuts to their operating funding during the last budget, but they also saw cuts to the infrastructure maintenance program, which helps pay for basic maintenance of things such as roofs and heating systems. The University of Alberta grant went from $22 million to $17.4 million, as the school wrestles with a $685-million deferred-maintenance backlog. NAIT’s grant was reduced to $2.8 million from $4.8 million, as the school deals with $60 million in backlogged maintenance projects. At the University of Alberta, where nearly half of the school’s 500 buildings are more than 40 years old, delays on maintenance projects are expected. “Essentially it will mean that we will have to delay some projects that are scheduled for maintenance and renewal,” spokesperson Bryan Alary said.

With a $685-million backlog in maintenance work, the University of Alberta and other schools in the province lost millions in infrastructure dollars in the provincial budget. RYAN TUMILTY/METRO While the school doesn’t yet know what projects might not go ahead, officials are looking at different ways to fund some of the repairs, Alary said. “It’s premature to say specifically what project would be affected. We are reviewing the impacts of this and looking at possible alternative funding sources,” he said.

NAIT spokesperson Frank Landry said the cut in funding will force the school to re-evaluate priorities. “The most important projects, whatever is at the top of the list, will continue to get done and the reduction means projects not deemed priorities or essential at this point will be delayed.” Landry said the school

This proof was produced by the following department:

focuses on health and safety issues and then looks at infrastructure improvements that will protect buildings over the long term. “There is a scale of things and some of the stuff at the bottom will just get pushed over to a later date,” he said. In an emailed statement, the government said the cuts to infrastructure mainten-

ance came as a result of the harsh fiscal realities facing the province. It also said the cuts were done on an institution-byinstitution basis concentrating on the schools that least needed the money. “Institutions in relatively good condition saw their IMP grant reduced more than others,” the statement says.

Budget backlash

Students plan mass rally

Brent Rathgeber. After a week in the spotlight, the former Tory MP moves to the press box for the Edmonton Prospects RYAN TUMILTY

While he vaulted into the national spotlight last week for calling foul on the Conservative government, on Sunday he was making that call on the baselines in Edmonton. Edmonton MP Brent Rath-

Future uncertain

Brent Rathgeber was elected in 2008 and 2011. He said he hasn’t yet decided if he will run again in 2015.

geber, who made headlines when he quit the Conservative caucus, spent the weekend at his new gig calling the Edmonton Prospects play-byplay. He said the job is a nice change of pace from life in Ottawa for a lifelong baseball fan. The assignment is a volunteer position and his com-

mentating goes out over Internet radio, allowing mostly players’ families to keep up on the Prospects. “I get paid a hotdog during the seventh inning, which I expect I am going to have to declare to the ethics commissioner given all the new interest in graft,” Rathgeber joked. The Blue Jays are unlikely to come calling for Rathgeber, but he stays on top of the play while interjecting the odd bit of colour. Patrick Cassidy, one of the team’s managing partners, said knowing Rathgeber’s interest, they approached him earlier this year and so far it has worked out.


Principals across the Edmonton Public School district are warning high school students they will be marked absent if they participate in a rally scheduled for the Alberta legislature this week. Hundreds of students are expected to leave class at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, walk out the front doors of their schools, and get on buses booked by student organizers and paid for by the Alberta Federation of Labour. The AFL couldn’t be reached for comment, but its online event schedule shows participation in the protest. The buses will take the high school students to the legislature, where they will have a “mass high school party” while protesting cuts by the Alberta government to education from kindergarten to Grade 12. “We decided and we realized that students need to make their own voice known,” said co-organizer Hayden Weir, a Grade 12 student at Jasper Place High School. Weir said he decided to organize the event with friend Samantha Kennedy after lamenting budget reductions that have resulted in cuts to programs and extracurricular activities. Weir estimated more than two dozen buses will be sent to public and Catholic high schools to ferry students to the rally. Edmonton Public School Board spokesperson Jane Sterling said the district has asked principals to post information on their schoolzone sites, stating the event is not being organized or endorsed by the district.

“He was sounding pretty good,” he said. “Not bad for a government man.” After a whirlwind few days following his Wednesday night resignation, Rathgeber said he looks forward to returning to Parliament Hill and being able to speak for his constituents. “I feel good about it. I feel liberated.” He said the Conservatives have to return to their principles and remember what brought them to power in the first place. “I genuinely hope the party does turn this around, because they have been off course for a while and Canadians will suffer.”

Verizon story source outed at his own request The Guardian. Ex-CIA employee Edward Snowden said his motive was to ‘inform the public’; NSA seeks criminal investigation A former CIA employee and National Security Agency contractor is the source of The Guardian’s disclosures about the U.S. government’s secret surveillance programs, the British newspaper reported Sunday. The leaks have reopened a debate about privacy concerns versus heightened measures to protect against terrorist attacks, and led

His background

Edward Snowden said that he lacked a high school diploma and enlisted in the U.S. Army. • After leaving the army, he got his foot in the door with the NSA working at a covert facility. • He then worked for the CIA in information technology. By 2007, he was stationed in Geneva.

America’s NSA to ask for a criminal investigation. The Guardian said it was publishing the identity of Edward Snowden, 29, a former

technical assistant for the CIA and current employee of defence contractor Booz Allen Hamilton, at his own request. “My sole motive is to inform the public as to that which is done in their name and that which is done against them,” said Snowden. The NSA has been collecting the phone records of hundreds of millions of Americans. U.S. President Barack Obama has said the programs have been authorized by Congress and are subject to supervision. “What I can say is that in evaluating these programs, they make a difference in our capacity to anticipate and prevent possible terrorist activity.” the associated press

Journalism. U.S. state snooping prompts debate on source protection A scandal over state snooping on journalists in the United States is prompting mediawatchers to consider new techniques to protect sources. Anonymity of sources is considered sacrosanct among journalists and essential to their safety, reputation, and ability to act as public whistle-blowers. But journalists are lagging behind when it comes to protecting sources in the digital era, critics say. “There is a general lack of

awareness (among journalists) about what ubiquitous surveillance looks like,” said Jonathan Stray, who teaches at Columbia University. Everything from the websites you visit, the calls you make, and even your phone location are logged somewhere, Stray said. The same applies to reporters. Whistle-blowers are at particular risk.

Canadian military

Defence survey to shed light on silent crime Results of an anonymous survey to be released in the fall by National Defence will shed more light on the extent of military sexual assault, including what has been called the silent crime of male-on-male rape. Almost 68,000 troops, 86 per cent of them men, were asked last year to voluntarily complete the Canadian Forces Workplace Harassment Survey. It asks their gender, years of service and rank, along with 100 questions ranging from personal harassment to whether they’ve been raped. It’s the first such survey since 1998. Results could provide valuable insight into the extent of sexual violence in the Canadian military — an issue that former soldiers and others say is rarely reported. The extent to which men are sexually assaulted by other men is even more cloaked in silence, they say. the canadian press

Anti-apartheid leader battles grave infection; in serious condition Nelson Mandela received visits from family members on Sunday at a hospital where the former president and antiapartheid leader was being treated for a recurring lung infection, while South Africans expressed their appreciation for a man widely regarded as the father of the nation. There was no official update on 94-year-old Mandela after his second night in the hospital. His condition was described as “serious but stable” on Saturday. The office of President Jacob Zuma had said that Mandela was taken to a Pretoria hospital after his condition deteriorated at around 1:30 a.m. on Saturday.

Alleged abuse

Ten years ago, their unprecedented wedding stood for hope, equality and inclusion. A decade later, Michael Leshner and Michael Stark — Canada’s first legally married same-sex couple — believe the battle to have their union recognized by the courts has made it easier for today’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Canadians to feel accepted. “Once you have marriage you have full equality. That was won that day,” said Leshner.

The pair’s quick civil ceremony in Toronto came just hours after Ontario’s Court of Appeal pronounced the Canadian law on traditional marriage unconstitutional on June 10, 2003. While Ontario was the first to legally recognize same-sex marriage, many other provinces followed soon after. Two years later, the federal government legalized same-sex marriage countrywide with the gender-neutral Civil Marriage Act. the canadian press

Flexible firms let employees buy, sell vacation days Want more time off work to hang out at the beach? Need a little cash and have vacation days to spare? Some U.S. companies are allowing their workers to buy and sell vacation time, a perk that gives workers more flexibility in managing their time off. The novel approach might help employees buy some extra days off to take the trip of a lifetime or spend more time with a newborn. Co-workers could sell off unused days to get some extra money.

iRadio music service, iOS update expected at Apple conference San Francisco. New look for iPhones, iPads could be most radical design change to mobile software since 2007 Apple is expected to reveal a digital radio service and changes to the software behind iPhones and iPads on Monday as the company opens its annual conference for software developers. Apple hasn’t said what it will unveil at the Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco. But the major announcements are expected during Monday’s keynote presentation. Last year, Apple used the conference to announce its own mapping service, better integration with social networks and improvements to virtual assistant Siri. It also announced

thinner MacBooks with highresolution screens. The conference runs through Friday. This year, Apple is expected to show off a simplified look on iPhones and iPads. If the speculation is correct, it would be the most radical design change

since the iPhone made its debut in 2007, showing consumers that phones could do much more than make calls and exchange messages. This week’s event comes at an important time for Apple. The company’s stock price has fallen amid concerns that another breakthrough product isn’t imminent. Although CEO Tim Cook has said people shouldn’t expect new products until the fall, Apple is likely to preview how future products will function in its unveiling of new services and features. Monday’s highlight is expected to be an updated version of iOS, the software that runs iPhones, iPads and iPod Touches. It will be called iOS 7 and will come with new devices expected to go on sale this fall. Owners of recent models such as last fall’s iPhone 5 will likely be eligible for free upgrades.

Skirting the issue Swedish train driver Martin Akersten poses wearing a skirt in Stockholm on May 31. Akersten says he and more than a dozen other drivers and conductors in the Swedish capital have started wearing skirts in the summer as a protest against train company Arriva’s uniform policy, which doesn’t allow shorts. An Arriva spokesman says the company wants its staff to look “nice and proper,” but can’t stop men from wearing “women’s clothes” if that’s what they want because it would be discrimination.

Canada’s food regulator is no longer getting involved in cases of anthrax, a disease that can kill cattle, bison, other grazing animals and, in rare cases, people. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency says it will no longer investigate and quarantine anthrax-infected farms, collect samples for testing, vaccinate livestock or oversee and help pay for the cost of disposing animals that die of the disease. New rules that went into effect this spring say livestock producers, with the help of private veterinarians, are expected to take responsibility for preventing and dealing with anthrax. Anthrax is caused by naturally occurring bacteria in spores in soil. The spores can become active during hot weather that follows heavy rains or flooding. Animals that ingest the spores can get sick and die very quickly. If the animal carcass isn’t disposed of properly, more spores end up in the soil. The Canadian Press

Running a food bank is a tough job. Racing against expiration dates and providing not only enough food, but also enough varieties of food to meet basic nutritional needs are just some of the challenges. It’s a breathtaking balancing act, especially for grassroots groups that are often understaffed or unfunded. “Sometimes food banks, depending on their location in the province, feel as though they are operating in isolation,” says Jessi Evanoff, co-ordinator of the Alberta Food Bank Network Association (AFBNA), which recently held a conference

George Stroumboulopoulos’ new CNN talk show premiered Sunday night.


Strombo brings style to CNN Network sea change. New mandate and management has the purveyor of American news looking to branch out into new territory It’s a safe bet that George Stroumboulopoulos will be the first male CNN personality to wear two earrings and a skull ring from a designer who made one for Keith Richards. Stroumboulopoulos, whose new nighttime talk show pre-

miered Sunday, is more curious than dangerous, though. The show gets a solid time slot for its debut, airing after the season finale of Anthony Bourdain’s successful Parts Unknown. Then it will settle into a regular spot on Fridays at 11 p.m. Eastern for the summer and, if things go well, maybe beyond. This is part of CNN’s attempt to branch out beyond news programming at certain times, represented most prominently by Bourdain’s show. The effort started before the arrival of new network boss Jeff Zucker — Stroumboulopoulos

had his first contact with the network last summer before Zucker arrived — but the enthusiasm continued with the change in management. Stroumboulopoulos already hosts a nightly talk show on the CBC, where his friendly style seems to encourage celebrities to open up. “I hope that people pick up something new about the person I’m interviewing and find out a way to relate to them,” he said. “I want them to find a connection.” For CNN, the show represents an old style for a new generation. Stroumboulopoul-

os, 40, said his interest in politics was fuelled less by politicians than by listening to the Clash and Public Enemy. He’s eager to interview Snoop Lion, the former Snoop Dogg, on his show because he considers him such an important figure in hip-hop. Rap artist Wiz Khalifa, comic Martin Short and actor Keanu Reeves were the guests on his first show. Other confirmed interviews for the show’s 10-week run include Betty White, Bill Maher, Sharon Stone and filmmaker Werner Herzog. The show will tape before

a studio audience in Los Angeles. Stroumboulopoulos said he’s not gunning for the job of CNN’s other general interview program, Piers Morgan, and said he likes the way Morgan conducts interviews. For the moment, he’ll fit the CNN show in with a schedule that includes the CBC show (which airs twice in the evening) and a weekly music and talk program he does for a CBS radio station. “This is what I do,” he said. “I don’t even have any dependents in my life. I don’t even have a plant.” THE CANADIAN PRESS

Let’s go ride a bike


Welcoming your kids to the wheel world CEO and avid Cadbury Bicycle Factory supporter Erica Ehm speaks to the unexpected education one can acquire on a bicycle. Monday, June 10, 2013

What can young ones learn from getting on a bicycle for the first time this summer? The first bike ride is a real bonding moment between parent and child. It’s really their first big opportunity for independence. It’s a very special moment. It can be tough for them at first — but it teaches persistence and fitness. It’s a very important message to instill in your kids, that it’s important to go out and play. METRO

Exclusively Online

In Africa, bicycles have a profound impact on students’ lives. A bike can cut travel time to school by up to four hours a day. • The Cadbury Bicycle Factory is an initiative that has built more than 18,000 bicycles to help students in Africa get to school every day. • By playing a free online game, kids can prompt

Cadbury to continue to donate the individual parts that will make up a full bicycle for a student in need.

Want to be healthier? Juggle a family and a full-time job New study. Our expert weighs in on a report claiming moms who work outside the home enjoy better mental and physical health IT’S ALL RELATIVE Kathy Buckworth,

A recent survey found women who worked full time outside the home after having children had better mental and physical health by age 40 than those who had not. This has of course raised interest, as one might assume that working full time while managing a family would be more stressful, and stress is a known factor in contributing to mental and physical challenges. It would appear that this isn’t necessarily accurate. Why would this be? Personally, I’m not entirely surprised by the findings. I think Albert Einstein had stayat-home moms in mind when he defined the word “insanity” as “doing the same thing over

Women who have kids and work full time have been found to have better mental and physical health by 40. ISTOCK

and over again and expecting different results.” Have you ever been at home with young children? Have you tried to get them to clean up their rooms, pee into the toilet or stop hitting their sister? No matter how many times they are told (clearly it is not “nagging” when it is simply giving them excellent advice), the outcome is often the same. Nothing changes. At least

not immediately, and not without years of bribing and threats. Add to that the fact that my research (I drove around a bit) shows that there isn’t a big list moms can carpool to at the end of the day in order to check off: a) continued successfully raising child, b) ensured food was edible and in good portion size and c) minimum health standards were met. Many moms at home just

don’t get to feel that sense of accomplishment that comes with actually moving something forward and affecting change. Not in the short term, at any rate, and one of the most distressing things a parent of young children can hear from parents of older children is that it “never gets easy.” There’s no such thing as a performance review when you’re on the home front: ex-

cept for the ones you get from snarly teenage girls who aren’t necessarily focusing on your positive attributes, as the ones in a professional work environment might. Unless, “You suck” is now a good thing in the way that “that’s so sick” has become. (I do try.) The reward system for moms at home also leaves something to be desired. In that there really isn’t one, except for the playground high fives you exchange with a friend when your kid wasn’t the one kicking someone else off the slide. Compare this to the workplace, where most employees can expect to be treated with a modicum of respect, have performance reviews which don’t include door slamming (to be fair, there aren’t any doors in most cubicles), and best of all, they get to take on new responsibilities with the positive achievement of old ones. Being relieved at duties you’ve perfected is something moms at home never get to experience. Until the kids are the ones to leave home, that is.

that doesn’t mean you won’t be able to secure a job that’s right for you.” Khamisa and other experts share two ways for job-seeking grads to distinguish themselves in a competitive job market and work toward kick-starting their careers. Build a network Do you have any professional contacts in your area of study or field of expertise? If not, there’s no time like the present to start making connections. Attending industry events, joining a professional umbrella organization or engaging with individuals working in the field to ask about key needs in their area — and how you can fill them — could help build your network, said Khamisa. “That’s the really powerful thing in a job search when it’s a tighter market — to get that face time with people who are in the field you’d like to work in.” Another good way to obtain information and build a network is through informal interviews, said Bruno Castilloux, manager of career services at

Keep connected While many people will be keen to “jump right into jobsearch mode,” Khamisa said that’s not the best way to start a relationship with a potential contact. Khamisa said the job search should be a time of exploration. It’s often easier when

individuals are initially seeking out information and learning about a particular industry and the needs of an organization before hunting for a specific position, she noted. “Reaching out and connecting takes courage ... and I guarantee you there will be times where people don’t get back to you or are just too busy or aren’t receptive,” she said. “But the magic happens when you persevere and you keep going. And eventually, you will connect with a group of people who will help you and support you as you move forward.” Khamisa added she once had a client who developed 10 contacts through cold calling. She continued to keep in touch over several months and ended up getting three different job offers. Placing a phone call isn’t just limited to maintaining professional contacts. When individuals reach the stage where they’re submitting applications, a followup call is another way to show initiative, said Danielle Bragge, a partner with The Headhunters, a Canadian recruitment firm.

The accident occurred shortly after the checkered flag waved to signal the end of the race.

Sebastian Vettel wasn’t losing any sleep over never having won the Canadian Grand Prix, but when he finally did it, he did it in style. The triple world champion for the Red Bull team pulled out to a comfortable lead from pole position and was never threatened as he added the Canadian GP to his list of 29 career Formula One wins on Sunday afternoon. The German, who has a commanding 36-point lead in drivers standings, took the checkered flag 14.4 seconds ahead of Ferrari ace Fernando Alonso, his closer pursuer on the track and in the standings. “It is important to us, but I wasn’t desperate to win “The recovery vehicle had lifted the car to return it to the pits, and while doing this, the worker dropped his radio and attempted to pick it up,” Matteo Bonciani, F1’s head spokesman, said as he read a statement to reporters. “As he did this, he stumbled and was hit and run over by the recovery vehicle.” Officials would not immediately release the identity of the victim, but said he was a member of the Automobile Club de l’Ile Notre Dame. Hospital officials said in a statement that he was a volunteer at the track. The Associated Press

here,” Vettel said. “I think we had strong results in the past. “It wasn’t a shame coming in here not having won this race, so I wasn’t desperate when I got up this morning, thinking ‘I have to win, I have to win.’ But I was very pleased because it’s a very nice race.” Vettel raced nicely himself, winning for the third time this season. He held off Lewis Hamilton’s Mercedes on the first turn from the start and pulled away. He led virtually the entire race, and had only one mishap on the 52nd of 70 laps when he cut across the grass after going into a chicane too quickly. The Canadian Press

Johnson and everyone else at Pocono Raceway Jimmie Johnson absolutely dominated Sunday at Pocono Raceway for his third victory of the season. The Sprint Cup points leader, Johnson pulled away on both of the last two restarts over the final 10 laps to pull into Victory Lane at Pocono for the first time since he swept both races in 2004. Johnson also won the Day-

tona 500 and at Martinsville Speedway this season. He led 128 of 160 laps for his 63rd career cup win and was never challenged a week after his run at a possible win at Dover International Speedway was taken away by a penalty off a restart. Greg Biffle was second and Dale Earnhardt Jr., Johnson’s teammate, was third. Dover winner Tony Stewart was fourth, followed by fellow Stewart-Haas Racing driver Ryan Newman. “I really didn’t have anything for Jimmie,” Biffle said. “Jimmie was in a league of his own.” The Associated Press

Well-oiled machines to clash in cup final NHL playoffs. Bruins and Blackhawks made short work of their opponents in conference finals

Two franchises, rich in history, talent and star power. Two winning teams that know what it takes to bring home the Stanley Cup. Intrigue, in the form of a schedule that kept them away from each other for an entire season. Oh, there’s plenty to love about this series. The Stanley Cup final kicks off Wednesday night when the Chicago Blackhawks host the Boston Bruins in the first finals matchup of Original Six franchises since Montreal beat the New York Rangers in five games way back in 1979.

The mighty Blackhawks, winners of seven of their last eight games, have a deep roster that really found its identity when pushed to the limit by the Detroit Red Wings in the second round. Then there are the playoff-tested Bruins, who rolled over favoured Pittsburgh during an impressive sweep that gave them a chance for a second NHL title in three seasons. It’s gift-wrapped in a bow for a league still trying to recover from a bitter lockout that wiped out 510 games and pushed the start of the season back to Jan. 19. “It’s a special couple places, the tradition of the Bruins and the Hawks is special,” Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said. “I’m sure, you know, the rivalry could return instantly come Game 1. I think it’s good for the league. It’s good

Unfamiliar foes

Due to the lockout, there were no interconference games this regular season. • The Bruins and Blackhawks haven’t played each other since Oct. 15, 2011, when Boston won 3-2 in a shootout in Chicago.

for hockey. Two great hockey markets. We’re very excited to be a part of it.” Chicago advanced with a 4-3 double-overtime victory over Los Angeles on Saturday night, using a hat trick from Patrick Kane to eliminate the defending champion Kings in five games in the Western Conference final. Back in the Stanley Cup series for

the first time since 2010, the Blackhawks are in search of another title to pair with their six-game victory over the Philadelphia Flyers three years ago. “Everyone has that drive to win the cup,” Chicago forward Andrew Shaw said. “It’s going to be a long road ahead here. It’s surreal. I’ve wanted this since I was a kid. I’m excited to get started.” Boston is rolling again after losing its spot atop the Northeast Division in the final days of the regular season. The Bruins have won five in a row and nine of 10, boosted by a familiar group of stars who led the way when they won it all in 2011. David Krejci scored four times in the Pittsburgh sweep and leads Boston with nine goals and 12 assists in the playoffs. The Associated Press

PLAY Monday, June 10, 2013



March 21 - April 20 Try to realize that not everyone thinks or feels the same way as you. A clash of viewpoints is likely today but it will only be a problem if you insist that you are right and others are wrong.

Oct. 24 - Nov. 22 The planets will smooth your path as the new week begins and you will find it quite easy to get your way both in the professional sphere and in your private affairs.

April 21 - May 21 You may prefer to stick with what you know and trust today rather than take a risk on something new. That’s up to you, of course, but it’s also a shame because a little bit of courage could change your life completely.


Nov. 23 - Dec. 21 Try not to let little things annoy you today because if your temper gets the better of you there is no telling where it might lead. Whatever other people might say or do treat it all as a big joke.


May 22 - June 21 Keep telling yourself that the changes now taking place are not nearly as bad as some people claim. As a matter of fact they could actually be beneficial, for you anyway, so make sure you have a positive attitude.


Dec. 22 - Jan. 20 If a commitment of some sort is not working out then maybe you should cut your losses and get out. It won’t be easy but let common sense (and the contents of your wallet) guide you.


June 22 - July 23 You are not as conformist as some people think and what you do over the next few days will prove that fact several times over. Expect a bit of a backlash though.


Jan. 21 - Feb. 19 Some things can be put off indefinitely because they are not really important but you have been putting off something that MUST be forced through to a conclusion. Make this the week when you finally crack it.


July 24 - Aug. 23 Try not to give too much away today, especially on the work front where knowledge is most definitely power. The less others know about what you are up to the more likely it is your efforts will be a success.
