Mayor Sam Katz says he’s confident Investors Group Field won’t be “getting back together” with the traffic woes that plagued the Winnipeg Blue Bombers pre-season game when Taylor Swift performs this Saturday. “I’m confident that all of the problems that I saw at the Bomber exhibition game can all be resolved,” said Katz following Wednesday’s executive policy committee meeting. “It was like the opening of a restaurant. It was a trial run.” Katz said “there’s no question” that a big issue was how

slow traffic moved once it turned onto Chancellor Matheson Road and University Crescent, and he suggested having more experienced people and proper signs “so people know where to go.” Kevin Donnelly, GM of True North Sports and Entertainment, the event’s organizer, said there will be signage, and parking lots will open at 2 p.m., hours before the gates open at 5 p.m. Donnelly also confirmed park-and-rides will be available, and information on their locations should be on the Investors Group Field website by Thursday. Donnelly said taking into account the ages of the concertgoers, they’ve expanded the capacity of pickup and drop-off spots to 1,400. A checkpoint that caused delays during the June 12 Bombers game has been scrapped, he added.

More charges. Kids taken Cancer-Care Manitoba. from orthodox Mennonites New program reaches out




MP Shelley Glover has re-filed her election expenses with Revenue Canada after allegations of improper spending came to light.



While many are excited the bell of Batoche may be brought back home, Manitoba Métis Federation president David Chartrand called those who offered its return “robbing thieves” for trying to sell it to the highest bidder.



The sexual assault trial of Orthodox archbishop Seraphin Storheim will not resume until September. The Crown closed its case Tuesday and the defence has said it expects to call witnesses when the trial resumes Sept 12.

Children have been removed from an orthodox Mennonite community in southern Manitoba, where more adults have been charged with assaulting youngsters. Manitoba Family Services confirms that children from the community have been taken into care and are being placed in “culturally sensitive” locations, but would not say how many or reveal any other details. Two adults have been charged with assault and assault with a weapon against a

combined 12 children. That is in addition to similar charges laid in March against two other adults in the community. All four are accused of hitting children with objects such as cattle prods and leather whips. Defence lawyer Scott Newman, who represents the first two people charged, says the case is still in its early stages and he is awaiting more disclosure from the Crown.

Esplanade Riel. New restaurant takes over former Salisbury House space on the bridge

ing the 80-seat restaurant, replacing the lights, table, chairs, booths, floor, wallpaper, all of the equipment in the kitchen and adding a dessert stand. She says the couple hopes to operate Chez Sophie’s bridge location year-round, with private functions and special events like jazz nights attracting customers in the winter. “When you go downtown to eat, you have to park a couple blocks away anyway and do that even in the winter, so what’s the difference?” Rousseau says. “It’s Winnipeg, just dress well and take a walk. It’s worth it.” Rosie Blais agrees. The 22-year-old — who ordered the spinach and goat cheese quiche on her first visit to the new Chez Sophie — grew up and works in St. Boniface and is a big fan of the restaurant’s other location. “I love the atmosphere ... there’s something really exciting about being on the bridge.”


A new program from CancerCare Manitoba hopes to speed access for cancer patients to be diagnosed and treated. Called the First Nations, Métis and Inuit Cancer Control program, it will help increase access for “all Manitobans facing barriers to cancer services, resulting in less stress and worry for patients and their families,” said Health Minister Theresa Oswald. The program will have several outreach services, including a patient access co-ordinator who will work to connect

patients, families and healthcare providers. Staff will also travel to First Nations and Métis gatherings around Manitoba to share information with the goal of catching cancer earlier, said Oswald. “The program will also reach out to new Canadians and other populations who face challenges in accessing cancer services due to factors such as language, geography or lack of knowledge about cancer screening, prevention and care options,” she added.

Bonjour, Chez Sophie

Chez Sophie — the new restaurant on Esplanade Riel — quietly opened its doors on Monday. The Parisian restaurant, owned and operated by husband and wife Stéphane and Sophie Wild, didn’t hold an official opening, but word got around quickly. “It’s summer and everybody’s walking on the bridge and they go ‘Oh, it’s open,’” floor manager Caroline Rousseau said. “We rolled our tables twice (Wednesday) for lunch and supper will probably be the same.” Chez Sophie, which also has a 30-seat location — Chez Sophie Bistro — in St. Boniface, replaces the bridge’s previous tenant, Salisbury House. Rousseau says the Wilds invested $250,000 in renovat-

Guatemalan-CMHR partnership to ‘break long silence’ Winnipeg’s Canadian Museum for Human Rights has partnered with a Guatemalan organization that is building its own memorial to human rights violations in the small central American nation. Stuart Murray, president of the CMHR, signed a memorandum of understanding with the chair of Memorial Para la Concordia, Julio Solorzano Foppa, on Wednesday following a panel discussion at the University of Winnipeg. “We want to help break the long silence surrounding human rights atrocities,” said Murray. Solorzano Foppa, the son of former Guatemalan president Juan Jose Arevalo, saw his own family affected by the dictatorship of the 1980s — his mother, poet Alaide Foppa, and two

brothers disappeared. Their remains have never been found. “We are, let’s say, surrounded by either indifference from one part of the population

or aggression from some sectors that do not want human rights to be part of our life, our political, social and democratic life,” he said, adding he was given a tour of the museum and found it incredible. “We’re very hopeful that this relationship (with CMHR) will grow and that we will have an impact in changing a country.” The memorandum means the two groups will share information, expertise and exhibits. Memorial de la Concordia is aiming to build a museum on the site of the National Police Historic Archives, which was accidentally discovered in 2005 and contained information on the gross human rights violations ordered by the state.

Two men stabbed after trying to stop alleged thief Winnipeg police are probing an assault in the 200 block of Edison Avenue. Two men told police they saw an unknown man inside a neighbour’s vehicle shortly after 12:30 a.m. Wednesday. When they confronted the suspect, he stabbed them both before running away. Both men were taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The suspect is described as aboriginal, 17- to 22-yearsold, about 6 feet tall and with a mole on his face. Anyone with information should call police at 204986-6219 or CrimeStoppers at 204-786-TIPS. metro

Wednesday at John de Graff Elementary School, Premier Greg Selinger announced an investment of more than $15 million to renovate or build 28 classrooms in six school divisions across the province, including two new classrooms at John de Graff. “The schools are chosen based on the demand and the amount of pressure in the school to have additional classrooms,” Selinger said. “For example (John de Graff) has 400 children. In a K-5 school there’s lots of pressure and two additional classrooms will allow us to

meet the objective of getting it down to about 20 children per class. Currently in Manitoba, there are five new schools under construction or in the design phase in Thompson, Winkler and Winnipeg. In February, the Manitoba government announced an additional $4 million to hire teachers across the province, another part of its initiative to cap K to Grade 3 classes at 20 students by 2017. The Premier said much of the capital for these early education investments is coming out of the recent PST increase.

Crime. Police kept busy with string of robberies Is it the nice weather? The mosquitoes driving them crazy? For whatever reason, Winnipeg police were kept busy with a string of robberies. First, police arrested three male teens accused of robbing a 23-year-old man in the area of McMeans Avenue East and Kildare Avenue East on Tuesday. The teens demanded and received the man’s personal property before running away. Police caught up with them and arrested two 16-year-olds and a 17-year-old. Police are also on the hunt for a bank robber who robbed a bank just before 2 p.m. in the 200 block of Portage Avenue, with the second coming in at about 3 p.m. in the 1400 block of Portage Avenue. The suspect is described as

black, about 5 foot 5 inches tall, 35-40 years old with a shaved/ bald head. Police are looking, too, for a thief who robbed a disabled man of his medications. The theft was in the 400 block of Pacific Avenue shortly after 3:30 p.m. Two men, one confined to a wheelchair, told police an unknown man snatched a duffel bag off the wheelchair. The bag contained medications belonging to both victims, including 240 Tylenol 3, 177 Xanax and 59 Restoril. And finally, police are looking for a man who they say robbed a restaurant in the 800 block of Henderson Highway around 11 a.m. Police are looking for a white man, 30, about 5 foot nine inches tall with a medium to heavy build.

High school could be bad for your health High school may improve students’ minds, but it does the opposite for their bodies. A new study from the University of Waterloo suggests Canadian students in Grade 12 are in worse health than their younger high-school peers. The research, published in the latest issue of the journal BMC Public Health, found that by the time students reach senior year, they’re at a significantly increased risk for chronic diseases such as diabetes and lung cancer. It shows that over four years of high school, the number of smokers went up 170 per cent, binge drinking jumped 167 per cent and marijuana use rose by 124 per cent. What’s more, the vast majority of students — more than 89 per cent — didn’t meet Health Canada’s guidelines for minimum physical activity and barely seven per cent reported eating enough fruit and vegetables. The study’s co-author, Scott Leatherdale, says the

About the study

• The study used data collected from more than 31,000 high school students in nine provinces who filled out the substance use section of the 2010-11 Canadian Youth Smoking Survey. • The national schoolbased survey is funded by Health Canada and co-ordinated by the University of Waterloo. One Canadian study finds students in senior grades are at a higher risk for chronic diseases such as diabetes and lung cancer. istock images

fact that large proportions of graduating students fail to meet the most basic healthy living recommendations is cause for concern. Having even one of the risk factors measured can increase the likelihood of disease, and by Grade 12, the average stu-

dent shows three, he said. Students in higher grades appear to be at the greatest risk, he added. “The only way to avoid a large future burden of preventable disease is to develop more integrated and realworld models of intervention in Canadian high schools,” he said in a statement. the canadian press

“This is going to be a major undertaking,” an emotional Rae told a surprise news conference Wednesday in the foyer of the House of Commons. “It’s clear to me that it will take a lot more time and it simply isn’t possible to do both jobs at the same time.” The 64-year-old’s unexpected announcement caps a political career that has spanned 35 years and two parties.

Trip out on this opiate rock BACKSTAGE PASS

Jared Story

Unknown Mortal Orchestra is the product of New Zealand native Ruban Nielson, who makes fuzzed-out, psychedelic grooves during sleepless nights in his Portland, Oregon basement. The nocturnal music maker — formerly of Kiwi noise rock band The Mint Chicks — started UMO in spring of 2010, when he anonymously posted the track Ffunny Ffrends to his Bandcamp profile. The trippy tune caught the attention of some popular bloggers and UMO has since made two full-length albums, including II, released in February on Jagjaguwar. UMO’s psychoactive/retrospective sound can partly be attributed to Nielson’s affinity for analog recording techniques. He uses multiple tape recorders in combination with Pro Tools audio software. “I’ll record to tape and then to Pro Tools or I’ll record with Pro Tools and then re-amp to tape,” Nielson says. “Most of the tracks end up having tape involved on some level. Tape just sounds way better to me.” “When people talk about

what’s better about the modern recording era, they talk and they talk and they talk, but none of the stuff they say is about the way it sounds. Even if you’re making a dub step record, it would sound better if you used tape in some way. It’s just better. Convenience is the only thing that makes people not record analog.” Nielson — who is joined in UMO by bassist Jake Portrait and drummer Riley Geare — says he enjoys recording alone. But he wants to try bringing in other people on the third UMO album, having recently worked with engineers Russell Elevado (D’Angelo, Al Green) and Mark Ronson (Amy Winehouse, Adele). “I just want the records to get better and better,” Nielson says. “I don’t necessarily want to trade in what’s working for something different, but there’s only so far I can take it by myself. It’s a lot of work to do an entire record by you. It gets exhausting. It would be nice to just be an artist for a few days, just getting to concentrate on music and not everything else.”

Breathing life into a story about the undead

Blockbuster material?

Brad Pitt crossed his Zs for new film Brad Pitt wanted to build a better blockbuster. During the years Hollywood shifted toward increasingly bigger spectacles and superhero tentpoles, one of the movies’ biggest stars largely stayed on the sidelines, focusing instead on ambitious ensembles. But the zombie apocalypse World War Z, which opens Friday, is Pitt’s bold, long-gestating, big-budget effort to enter the franchise fray. It’s been a humbling crusade. “These films are much more difficult than I realized,” Pitt said in a recent interview over coffee at a restaurant off Times Square. Based on the 2006 sci-fi novel World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War by Max Brooks (son of Mel), the $200-million-plus film has had a rocky path to theatres. It’s gone through a swarm of screenwriters, several key crew changes, a postponed release date and, most notably, a reshot ending. But most moviegoers that Thursday, June 20, 2013

Brad Pitt’s experience making World War Z was humbling. the associated press

make it to the film — far from the flop many predicted — will likely wonder what all the fuss was about. The reviews have largely been positive for World War Z, a riveting, brisk thriller with a refreshingly — and, for summer movies, atypically — human protagonist who relies purely on his intellect and experience as he shuttles around the world trying to solve the zombie pandemic that’s engulfed most of the planet. Pitt’s former United Nations investigator has no superpowers, no gun, and as Pitt says, “can’t even run that fast.” The Associated Press

World War Z. What sets this zombie movie apart from other summer thrillers is the familial realities weaved in the story, says Mireille Enos Steve Gow

Society has become obsessed with the undead. Not only are zombie movies persistent fixtures of the multiplex but the walking dead can be seen on television, in video games and even read about in published guides to surviving fictional outbreaks. So with World War Z set to open, how does star Mireille Enos think the film will fare in such a saturated market? “Well, on an action level, we have the fastest zombies,” offered the actress during an interview in Manhattan. “There’s also the family story, which is a survival

story, and then there’s a global story — the zombies I think act as metaphor for the different crises on our planet.” Metaphors aside, World War Z (which itself is based loosely on a hit novel) may be more noteworthy as Brad Pitt’s first such shot at the zombie genre. In fact, Pitt also produced the film in which he plays a United Nations’ investigator forced to abandon his loving wife (Enos) and children to explore an uncontrollable global viral outbreak that turns ordinary citizens into flesh-eaters. “I think that’s why he’s the star that he is — he’s an everyman and he’s such a normal guy that people see themselves and respond to

that,” says Enos of Pitt’s appeal as a family man-turnedreluctant hero. “He’s obviously a family man himself and loves that role. You can just feel it every time he talks about his family.” As filmmaker Marc Forster has insisted, it was important to ground the thriller in that level of familial realism. And, Enos adds, it’s especially vital in a summer filled with extraordinary superheroes and far-flung space adventures. “(Brad’s character is) not a superhero even though he’s an action hero,” said Enos. “He just wanted to play it as a dad with a set of skills but he’s just doing his job.” Everything Enos

• The best zombie movie ever? “This is my favourite because it’s the only one I’ve ever seen,” laughed Enos. “I don’t do well with (film’s that are) gory. Luckily, ours is action-packed, full of suspense.” • Shine on, bright star. Alongside her hit TV show The Killing, Enos is a rising movie star in Hollywood with no less than three projects hitting theatres.

Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus says it’s better to go green


Sopranos star James Gandolfini dies at 51 James Gandolfini, who won three Emmys for his role as Tony Soprano on HBO’s The Sopranos, reportedly died in Italy Tuesday after suffering a heart attack, TMZ reports. Gandolfini, who was 51, was in Italy to attend the 59th Taormina Film Festival in Sicily. He first garnered fame playing a hitman in 1993’s

True Romance. But it was his role as the brash, troubled mob boss Tony Soprano that earned him legions of fans of the six-season HBO series. Gandolfini is survived by his wife, Deborah Lin, who gave birth to the couple’s daughter in October. He has a teenage son from a previous marriage. METRO NEW YORK

Katy Perry can’t stay away from the fireworks For her first appearance on the cover of Vogue, Katy Perry isn’t holding much back, especially about her split from ex-husband Russell Brand. “Let’s just say I haven’t heard from him since he texted me saying he was divorcing me December 31, 2011,” she tells the magazine. As for why their marriage didn’t work out? “I think a lot of times strong men do want

an equal, but when they get that equal they’re like, ‘I can’t handle it,’” she says. Perry also addresses her romance with John Mayer, quashing rumours they’re together again. “It’s over, I was madly in love with him. I still am madly in love with him,” she says. “Beautiful mind, tortured soul. I do have to figure out why I am attracted to these broken birds.”

Paula Deen revealed as racist jerk? THE WORD

Dorothy Robinson

The fearless National Enquirer claims to have unearthed a video of famed “chef” Paula Deen allegedly admitting to using the N-word as well as making a myriad of terrible racist jokes, aimed at African Americans and Jewish people. The Enquirer claims Deen was filmed in a May 17 deposition to defend herself and her brother Bubba Hiers against a giant lawsuit filed by the former general man-

ager of their Savannah, Ga., restaurant. Metro has not seen the video, so we have no way of verifying its authenticity. Lisa Jackson is suing the family for use of defamatory language by Deen and sexual harassment and infliction of distress and assault by Hiers. The worst from the tape? The Inquirer alleges Deen admits to saying that she wanted “black waiters to play the role of slaves in a wedding party she was planning.” Deen also reportedly gave several examples of when she used the N-word and fesses up to making racist jokes about “Jewish people, rednecks, black folks... I can’t determine what offends another person.” Her defence is “they’re jokes.” Actually, no they aren’t. Even in Georgia, those aren’t jokes.

Miley Cyrus isn’t being shy when it comes to her opinions on drugs and alcohol. “I think alcohol is way more dangerous than marijuana — people can be mad at me for saying that, but I don’t care. I’ve seen a lot of people spiral down with alcohol, but I’ve never

seen that happen with weed,” she tells Rolling Stone during an online Q&A. “As long as it isn’t illegal, there are far more dangerous things. And it’s legal in the state of California. So I’m happy to live in California, a place where you can be whoever you want to be.”

Sadly no. I, too, have thought for many years that Borax was a safe, good cleaning product to use in our homes. However, I have recently learned the following from the David Suzuki Foundation web-site and I quote, “The Georgia Strait Alliance’s Toxic Smart Solutions factsheet says ‘while borax is also one of the least hazardous domestic cleaning products, it is not without an environmental impact.

Creamy sauce dresses up meat This mouth-watering dish takes no time at all to prepare and the reward is delicious! The pink peppercorn crust is complimented so well by the creamy, cheesy Canadian Cambozola sauce. This one is sure to please your family, guests or even just yourself.

1. Bring steaks to room temperature, about 20 minutes. Pre-heat barbecue to medium-high heat. 2. In a small bowl whisk together garlic, olive oil, Worcestershire sauce and thyme. Brush steaks with marinade and firmly coat with the peppercorns reserving a 1/2 tsp (2 ml) to garnish sauce. 3. Place steaks on a greased grill in the centre (to allow even heat circulation). Grill covered, turning once, until steaks are medium-rare, about 8 minutes or until desired doneness. Transfer to a cutting board and let steaks stand 6 minutes before

Bruins doing their part to help heal heartache NHL playoffs. Cup run helping city get past hurt from attack at Boston Marathon They have come to wave flags or meet players or just appear on the video screen, invariably to standing ovations, during the Boston Bruins’ run to the Stanley Cup final. Many are in wheelchairs, some are in uniform, and others have been honoured on behalf of those who couldn’t make it at all. As the Bruins attempt to win the NHL championship, they have shared the spotlight with the victims and first responders from the Boston Marathon bombings, using them as “Fan Banner Captains.” The Bruins are hoping a cup can contribute to the healing. “I think we can help, in

probably a large way,” Bruins coach Claude Julien said this week after the Stanley Cup final returned to Boston for Games 3 and 4. “Everybody is looking right now for something to cheer about, smile about. “I guess it doesn’t fix the things or the people that have been lost. That will never be fixed. At the same time you have to try to heal.” Two bombs exploded at the Boston Marathon finish line on April 15, killing three people and injuring hundreds more. The Bruins, who had been scheduled to play that night, postponed that game but returned two days later with an emotional pre-game ceremony and a gritty overtime loss that clinched a berth in the playoffs. Since then, an organization that has long had a close relationship with the military and first responders has brought in those affected by the bombings

— doctors, police and EMTs, along with marathon volunteers, runners and spectators. “You do what you can, obviously, to lift people’s spirits,” Bruins forward Milan Lucic said. “I remember how the city was and reacted to all of that, and it wasn’t a good feeling at all. At the end of the day, you know, we’re fortunate to be living our dream to be playing a game. “Having this to try to take people’s minds off things is something that’s cool to be a part of, and that’s what we talked about before. ” Before Game 4 of the Stanley Cup final on Wednesday night, an ad on the scoreboard asked fans to contribute to the One Fund, the charity established to help the bombing victims. Marc Fucarile, the last of 31 bombing victims treated at Massachusetts General Hospital to be released, was invited onto the ice to wave a banner that said “Boston Strong.” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Hefney casting no stones at Bombers CFL. After being caught with pot and then cut in pre-season, veteran DB returns to the field with Stampeders Jonathan Hefney holds no grudges against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. The veteran defensive back is now with the Calgary Stampeders after being released by the Bombers following four seasons with the CFL club. Hefney, 28, was a twotime CFL all-star with Winnipeg. But the five-foot-nine, 185-pound defensive back

was arrested for marijuana possession in his native South Carolina on May 31 and didn’t promptly notify Winnipeg officials of the incident. Hefney played in Winnipeg’s 24-6 exhibition loss to the Toronto Argonauts last Wednesday but was released Saturday. “I really don’t know,” Hefney said about why he was let go by Winnipeg. “I just know I’ve got a job now. “I’m just going to go out here and be happy and play football.” Hefney joins a Calgary squad that finished second in the West Division standings last year and went on to face Toronto in the 100th Grey Cup. With such stars as run-

Last season, Winnipeg and the Hamilton Tiger-Cats finished tied for last in the East Division standings with identical 6-12 records as both clubs missed the playoffs. “I’m really happy and excited to come to a team that just went to the Grey Cup,” Hefney said. “Just looking at the offence they’re explosive, nobody can really stop Nik Lewis and Jon Cornish from running the ball. “Their defence likes to hit, they fly around ... they play everything that I think I’m about.” Hefney, a native of Rock Hill, S.C., has appeared in 60 career CFL games. He has registered 241 tackles, two sacks, 13 interceptions, six fumble recoveries and two forced fumbles.

March 21 - April 20 Your reaction when confronted by an obstacle is to kick it out of the way, but you must be more subtle today. You should also try to remember that other people’s feelings are not always as robust as your own.


April 21 - May 21 The best way to deal with a problem is pretend it doesn’t exist. The more you focus on negative things, the more likely it is they will keep going wrong. “Positive thinking” is more than just a slogan.


May 22 - June 21 There are far too many distractions in your life and if you want to move ahead in areas that are really important to you then you need to cut back quite ruthlessly on activities.


June 22 - July 23 The Sun moves into your sign tomorrow and a new solar year begins, making this the ideal day to look back over the past 12 months. Whatever mistakes you made, forgive yourself and move on.


July 24 - Aug. 23 You may appear open and outgoing to the world at large but you have secrets like everyone else. One secret is likely to be revealed over the next few days. Pretend you don’t care.

Aug. 24 - Sept. 23 If you have not finished a project of some time by now, it might be best to forget about it. That is the message of the stars today and while it may sound a bit negative, it’s not.


Sept. 24 - Oct. 23 When the Sun crosses the career angle of your chart tomorrow, you must turn your attention to your reputation. Could it be better? Yes, it could. You must identify how.


Oct. 24 - Nov. 22 In recent weeks it seems you have been cruising on autopilot but that will change with the Sun’s change of signs tomorrow. Suddenly you will be more alive again. Suddenly you will be back in control.


Nov. 23 - Dec. 21 Try to get your point of view across in a calm way. It will help if you are clear in what exactly it is you want to say. Make that your priority today then speak up tomorrow.


Dec. 22 - Jan. 20 Try to help others because the good deeds you do for them now will come back to you over the next few weeks. Above all, remember you can’t always have things your own way. You have to give ground.


Jan. 21 - Feb. 19 There is no need to apologize for things that are not your responsibility. Someone you live or work with will try to shift the blame for a failure of some kind on to you today but you must have none of it.
