Canmore homes along Cougar Creek barely hung on as the town struggled to deal with flooding Thursday. CRAIG DOUCE/ROCKY MOUNTAIN OUTLOOK/THE CANADIAN PRESS

Free coffee and the best in entertainment.

People and homes were washed into rivers and potentially hundreds of thousands were displaced as rapid floodwaters gushed into southern Alberta towns, hamlets and the City of Calgary Thursday. At press time, emergency alerts remained in the communities of Red Deer, Canmore, Okotoks, High River, Turner Valley and Black Diamond. Damage estimates will likely take days to sort out, but many people appeared lucky to be alive, pulled from rushing waters by helicopters, boats and even construction and farm vehicles. But significant damage was still expected to come in Cal-

gary, with officials projecting water levels would peak sometime after midnight. More than 15 communities were expected to be hit by significant flooding in the city. “It appears that we’re in for substantial flooding, probably flooding like people have never seen in their lifetime,” said Bruce Burrell, director of the Calgary Emergency Management Agency. Elsewhere, severe damage had been reported in Canmore, where parts of homes were washed away as the once trickling Cougar Creek gushed over the banks Thursday morning. South of Calgary, downtown Okotoks filled with water, flooding a seniors’ complex, hotel and the town’s main street. More than 150 people were left stranded on their rooftops in High River as the Highwood River washed into the town, and military personnel were called in to assist with evacuations. Damage also appeared significant in Bragg Creek, Redwood Meadows and other

areas. Turner Valley dealt with a scare earlier in the day as flooding ruptured a sour-gas pipeline. Water levels in the Elbow River were believed to be the highest since the 1950s, officials with Calgary’s water services division said. The Bow River would still potentially rise into the weekend depending on rain levels in the mountains. Images of the incredible damage made headlines across Canada, and Prime Minister Stephen Harper issued a statement late Thursday. “Our thoughts and prayers are with those families who have been affected by the serious flooding in Calgary and southern Alberta,” he said. “I want to assure Albertans that the federal government has offered any and all possible assistance to the province of Alberta in response to the situation.” WITH FILES FROM DARREN KRAUSE, KATIE TURNER & ROBSON FLETCHER

City in crisis. Floods pummel Calgary, up to 100,000 evacuated JEREMY NOLAIS

jeremy.nolais@metronews.ca

Elysse Berg thought it was a joke at first. “I got a text message telling me I was going to have to evacuate,” she recalled. “I didn’t believe it.” That was at 6:20 p.m. on Thursday. Within 40 minutes, Berg had packed up valuables, three pets and raced out of her Bowness basement suite, hoping to get out of the path of overflow from the Bow River.

“It’s like the apocalypse in here,” she said, sitting in traffic heading to higher ground. “There’s no direction, nobody talked to us, nobody came and knocked on our door.” Police began ordering mandatory evacuations in other areas of the city hours earlier, as the Elbow River poured in at a rate eight or nine times greater than what it typically would this time of year. Residents were urged to use electrical tape to mark their doors with an X, signalling to emergency responders that their home had been vacated. Calls to 911 spiked by 50 per cent, but most were simply asking for information, said Deputy Police Chief Trevor Daroux. At press time, no injuries had been reported.

But the horror for Calgary residents — up to 100,000 were expected to be evacuated by midnight — may not be over, as Bruce Burrell, director of the Calgary Emergency Management Agency, said more rain forecast for the mountains this weekend could bring further overflow. “This isn’t going to be an incident of hours — this is going to be an incident of days,” he said, adding damage estimates would begin being tabulated Friday. Water also flowed over St. Patrick’s Island, and images on social media indicated Bowness Park had turned into a lagoon. The rising levels also appeared to threaten the Peace Bridge, but no damage had been reported.

NEWS

It didn’t take long for people living by Calgary’s rivers to recall the panic of the city’s last major flooding incident in 2005. That summertime surge marked the first and only time Calgary had declared a state of emergency — until Thursday. More than 40,000 homes were flooded and 1,500 people evacuated. “It was really bad then,” said Pauline Hall, who lived along the Elbow River. “We had to leave for 2-3 days.” Projections of the fallout from Thursday night’s flooding called for a far greater disaster. City officials warned residents to be prepared for even more damaging water flows. But rain was only spotty earlier in the day, and many residents, such as Ali Reinhart, who lives near Hall, spent the morning surveying river levels in the Mission area. She recalled staying with her parents in 2005 and not being able to travel. “I remember it very well,” Reinhart said. “I guess we’ll wait and see what happens.” Crews worked to establish a berm in Mission along Elbow Drive; however, residents were still ordered to evacuate. Mission resident Kelsey Hipkin took no chances, darting into her basement suite in the afternoon to retrieve clothes, cherished photographs and a laptop. “I’m glad I was paying attention to social media,” she said. “If I hadn’t been, I might have just gone home after work without knowing what was going on.”

City comes together

• SAIT Polytechnic opened its student residences and were offering hot food out of the campus Denny’s. • Pets were being taken at the Animal Service Centre on Portland Street S.E. • The Calgary Drop-In welcomed all homeless, despite their basement being flooded. • Hundreds more opened up their homes to victims, inviting complete strangers to stay with them on social media.

This way or that way? U of C signs to cost $12M I saw the sign, not quite yet. Tough March budget will likely see three-year University of Calgary project delayed Jeremy nolais

Most students at the University of Calgary can find the MacEwan Student Centre, but locating particular faculties on campus can prove to be a challenge. Metro file photo

Thousands flock to the University of Calgary every day, but many end up driving in circles or scratching their heads as they analyze complex campus maps. “I could cite lots of examples where a visitor, a first-timer to the university, would struggle,” said Bob Ellard, university vicepresident of facilities management and development. “Is it a disaster? No, because in time you ask people, you find your way around, but a lot of our signage ...

dates back 40-plus years.” Former U of C student Bruce Hart said he found it a particularly daunting task to navigate the campus after coming from the smaller confines of a high school. “There are so many different buildings and it’s hard to know which faculty you’re in,” he said. “I think they could definitely use more signs in the buildings.” Ellard himself admits he was lost his first day on the job and ended up being late for a meeting at the administrative building. The university also suffers from its road network, he said, given that no single road runs the entire way around campus with entry points for each area. Certain buildings’ names are outdated on maps as well. Ellard and fellow planners have crafted a three-year plan to improve directional signage both inside and outside of buildings as well as add addi-

The plan, however, comes with a $12-million price tag, something the school simply cannot afford given its current financial predicament. Provincial funding at the school was cut 8.3 per cent in the March budget after officials had been promised a two per cent increase. In response, the school has trimmed enrolment in the arts and will likely not rehire 50 positions lost through retirement. Ellard admits way-finding funding may very well get lost in the shuffle, a particularly un-

• Student funding did pay for a “refresh” of the main entrance signs and campus map at the University of Calgary last year, according to Bob Ellard, vice-president of facilities management and development. • Some signs will be upgraded in the main entrance areas of buildings at the U of C this summer, Ellard said, but the rest of his plan to enhance way-finding on campus in indefinitely on hold.

Church provides dose of positivity in defence of

Mike Morrison calgary@metronews.ca

It might not surprise you, but I’m not really known as being a church-going guy Growing up, my mom tried, but up against four uninterested kids, she quickly lost the battle. Since then, I’ve made the occasional cameo at church on Christmas Eve, partially because it’s a family tradition, but mostly as a “just in case.” Last week, I broke my nearly lifelong Sunday church attendance record when I decided to go and watch my friend give his first sermon as a pastor here in Calgary. Any time I get the chance to watch any of my friends who are actors, dancers or musicians, I go and support them. I didn’t really think of Nick speaking at his church as being any different. My friend Krista and I planned to make a discreet entrance into the back of the chapel and quietly cheer on our high-school classmate. The plan was botched almost immediately, as the church’s greeters instantly noticed us as being new to the congregation. We were greeted with big smiles, handshakes and friendly questions about our lives.

The inner-city cynic that has grown suspicious of anyone that makes eye contact with me was taken aback, especially when I realized that these greeters weren’t going to followup their friendliness by asking for money or smokes. For the next hour, church was essentially nothing like I thought it was going to be. Likely in an attempt to attract younger audiences, churches are now cooler than they used to be. They use PowerPoint presentations, they’re on Twitter and they make jokes about formerly taboo subjects. Add a few fun choral performances and free hotdogs after the service and, even though I didn’t necessarily buy what they were “selling,” I was actually having a good time. My biggest takeaway of the day was how refreshing it was to be around people who were completely positive about everything for an entire hour. I’m not sure how often I’ll go back — getting up early on a Sunday definitely takes a better person than I — but it’s nice to know that whenever I need a boost of positivity, there’s always a church just around the corner.

Jamie Niessen, president and CEO of Propellus, formerly Volunteer Calgary, shows off the new name and vision for the organization on Thursday at Telus Spark. katie turner/metro

Volunteer Calgary takes on new role, new name Propellus Beyond volunteerism. Organization broadens scope of services in non-profit sector Katie turner

katie.turner@metronews.ca

After years of connecting volunteers with non-profits, one Calgary organization is propelling in a new direction. At their annual general meeting Thursday, Volunteer Calgary announced a new vi-

sion and a new name for the more than five-decade-old organization. The new name, Propellus, reflects the group’s new widened scope of services, according to president and CEO Jamie Niessen. “For more than 50 years, we’ve been empowering nonprofit organizations to learn and to grow and we’ll continue to do that under a new banner and a new name,” he said. “Propellus looks beyond volunteerism … but we’re looking at all forms of nonprofit management, not just

profit management services under one roof, so the sum is greater than the parts,” Niessen said. “We can help organizations learn how to engage volunteers but also give their staff the training they need to go back and make change in their organization.”

Residency. Alberta changes ‘Last hoorah.’ Local comic worker nominee program bids farewell to Calgary Rodjie Madrid’s youngest child has grown up largely without his father. Madrid has been working under the temporary foreign worker program at Spruceland Millworks for five years, while his two children, ages nine and four, have grown up in the Philippines. “My youngest grew up without me most of the time,” he said. Madrid is one of hundreds of foreign workers who might have an easier path to permanent residency in Canada thanks to a change the provincial government announced yesterday. The change will allow temporary foreign workers to nominate themselves for permanent residency, where previously only their employers could nominate them. Deputy Premier Thomas Lukaszak said it only makes sense to encourage temporary foreign workers in high-demand occupations to stay. “Why send them back home to the Philippines or another country just to replace them?” he said.

looks to the nominee program, but makes the ultimate decision, based in part on a quota system. Ben Sawatzky, CEO of Spruceland Millworks, said 20 per cent of his employees are temporary foreign workers and he would like to see more of them be able to stay. “You recognize these people’s potential for more senior roles, for leadership roles in the company, but you can’t allow them to go there because you know you are going to lose them.” Ryan Tumilty/metro

After enduring three years of bad Family Guy jokes, local comic Chris Griffin will be celebrating some of his last moments as a Calgary resident performing at Sled Island. The Calgary native followed his dream of working in publishing right after high school, and eventually realized comedy was where his heart lay. At the age of 29 he began doing comedy as a way to “say something that mattered.” “I’m really excited to be doing Sled Island for the first

time. Those guys have been tremendously supportive,” Griffin said. Following his three Sled Island performances, Griffin will be holding his own show as a “last hoorah” at the Epcor Center next weekend. He will be moving to Vancouver in August and wanted to leave Calgary with a big show where he could showcase some other comedians. “It’ll basically be a summation of things I’ve done in Calgary.” Allison Parder/for Metro

High River. Little time to react to flooding, resident says Sheri Goodman of High River was on her way to work at 6:40 a.m. on Thursday, when she called her husband, Cory, to warn him of rising waters. At the time Cory said he figured everything was OK, not to worry. By 9 a.m. he had called her back. “He said, ‘Uh-oh — it’s going over the bank and it’s going to flood the downtown,’” Goodman said. At 10 a.m. Cory called her again. “He goes, ‘We’re f----d,’” she said. Goodman said they immediately jumped into action as the Highwood River was topping the bridges in the area. Boats around the golf course near where Goodman and her family live were being picked up, swept into the bridges and smashed, she said, and water was gushing into area homes through fireplaces, windows and into the walkout basements. She and her husband towed out a fifth-wheel trailer, their truck and a boat, and Goodman drove in the minivan with one of her kids. “Me and Adam barely got out. We were starting to float.” RCMP spokesperson Sgt. Patricia Neely says about 150 people were stranded on rooftops in the flooded areas. “Obviously, (High River’s) emergency operation centre is in effect and they’re looking for volunteers to fill the sandbags and help with the sandbagging efforts,” Neely said on Thursday. Goodman, who lived in High River during the devastating 2005 flood, said that disaster pales in comparison to what she saw on Thursday.

Help is on the way

• Fraser Logan, publicaffairs officer at CFB Edmonton, confirmed that Canadian Forces search-and-rescue units were dispatched to southern Alberta, but could not provide more details. • In a statement, the Prime Minister’s Office said two helicopters, a Griffon and a Cormorant, were dispatched to help flooded communities.

“We had time to prepare for that flood in 2005,” Goodman said, noting most people then just sandbagged along the perimeter of their land and waited out the flood. This time, they had no time to prepare. The speed of this flooding caught them off guard, she said. “This happened in two hours. It is insane.” She’s unsure what the family will go back to, or when they’ll be allowed back. When they left their home, water had already soaked their basement. She and her family are staying at her parents’ place near Okotoks. Schools in High River have been evacuated, and Goodman said patients were being transferred from the hospital in the backs of trucks. Communication in the area has been difficult. Goodman said cell service was out in many areas, and the power is also affected. Darren Krause/Metro

Several homes in Canmore were lost to the raging waters of Cougar Creek as the normally small waterway swelled due to heavy rains on Thursday, residents say. “Yes, homes have been lost. I’ve seen photos of one but you can count on more than that,” said Wade Gra-

ham, who estimated 25 to 50 homes along Grotto Road were under threat. “My house is OK for now, but we’re starting to see water come across the street,” Graham said when reached by phone on Thursday morning. “The rain has let up but we’ve got 100 millimetres more rain (in the forecast) coming still.” Duncan Hume, who lives adjacent to Cougar Creek on Bow Valley Trail, said portions of three homes on Grotto Road had fallen into the creek as of 12:30 p.m. “One more is in danger of going in,” he said on a cellphone while looking down at the area from a nearby dike. “The water is still coming in. It’s getting higher, by the

looks of it.” Even more homes appeared to be under threat, Hume added, and debris from other houses was flowing downstream. “A fridge is going down the side here now,” he said. “Every now and then you’ll see a piece of furniture on its way down.” Local wildlife photographer John Marriott posted a video to YouTube depicting the creek encroaching onto the backyard of his home on Grotto Road at 10 a.m. Shortly afterward he tweeted: “Oh no, house 6 up from ours just went in.” Reached by phone at 4:45 p.m. at a neighbour’s house after evacuating his own, Marriott said the situation

had gotten even worse. “Up the street, two houses from us, there are eight houses in a row that have been compromised now,” he said. “None of them have actually fallen fully into the creek, but there are varying degrees of foundations gone or they’re hanging over the bank or half the house has fallen in.” Marriott said the water level in the creek appeared to be receding, albeit slightly. “It’s still raging, but it has gone down a bit for sure,” he said. “But now it looks like it’s going to start raining again.” In the 20 years that he has lived in Canmore, Marriott said he had never seen any flooding like this.

Capsized trailer

Where’s an ark when you need one: Calgary Zoo evacuated

One of two people believed to have been swept away by floodwaters on the swollen Highwood River was rescued on Thursday but the other was still missing as of press time. STARS air-ambulance spokesman Cam Heke said a third-party “non-STARS helicopter” was able to rescue a man from the top of a trailer floating in the river. Earlier in the day, rising waters swept away a house trailer in an area south of Black Diamond. It’s believed two people were inside. “STARS was requested to aid in a search-andrescue effort after reports of two adults going missing following the capsizing of that trailer,” Heke said. He said STARS crews conducted an aerial search of the area for 40 minutes before being forced to return to Calgary to refuel. The crew then had other emergencies that required immediate attention, he said. Metro, with files from

Senior management ordered the Calgary Zoo to vacate the premises on Thursday afternoon due to flooding. The City of Calgary closed the two bridges leading to St. George’s Island, forcing the zoo to shut its gates. Though the zoo has been evacuated, that doesn’t mean the animal residents are left “high and dry.” Trish Exton-Parder at the zoo said essential staff will stay and look after remaining people and animals on the grounds. “Animals are either taken to the upper back areas of their enclosures, taken to higher ground or in severe situations they are sent to our conservation centre in Dewinton,” she said.

Environment Canada also issued a rainfall warning for the area, extending into Friday. “An intense low-pressure system has positioned itself over Southern Alberta and will remain in place into Friday,” the agency warned. “Showers are still expected with 10 to 25 millimetres forecast by Friday evening.”

Downtown Okotoks evacuated Residents in the low-lying areas of Okotoks were under mandatory evacuation late on Thursday afternoon as the Sheep River continued to rise. Officials were knocking on doors on the town’s main road, Elizabeth Street, as well as other streets in the downtown area. Several roads were closed around the river. Mayor Bill Robertson said the commercial area downtown was also evacuated as

well as a seniors’ home near the river. “All those seniors are now up at the Okotoks Recreation Centre in the curling arena,” Robertson said. “They’re probably going to be there for the night, maybe longer.” Robertson said the Sheep River was expected to crest at about 6 or 7 p.m. and, while still early, he said this instance could be worse than a similar one eight years ago: “2005 was certainly big — this could be bigger. It’s hard to say at this point.” For updates on the situation in Okotoks, go to okotoks.ca. katie turner/metro

Turner Valley residents vacate after sour-gas pipe bursts Flooding ruptured a sourgas pipeline in the Turner Valley area on Thursday morning, prompting an evacuation of about 150 people, RCMP say. The province issued a critical hazardous-materials alert for the town of about 2,500 at 11:01 a.m, due to the release of toxic hydrogen-sulphide gas. The leak happened at the south end of the community in an exposed section of pipe owned by Calgary-based Legacy Oil and Gas, according to Cara Tobin of the Alberta Energy Regulator. “Any amount of hydrogen sulphide is a concern,” Tobin said. “The company hasn’t detected any dangerous levels of H2S at the break point, but our air-monitoring unit is on site and will confirm that data,” Tobin added.

Two Vancouver firefighters have been reprimanded for sending a package containing a box of tampons and recipes from women’s magazines to the Port Coquitlam fire department after it hired its first female members in more than a decade. The package was sent a few weeks ago and addressed to a male friend of the senders who works in the PoCo department, but was intercepted before it got to him. Vancouver Fire Chief John McKearney said the sexist prank was completely unacceptable, and the pair have both had letters of discipline put in their files. “When it was brought to my attention, I did an investigation, the two members came forward and they went

through a disciplinary hearing before a panel of chief officers, and they were subsequently disciplined,” McKearney said Thursday. “It was a stupid, ignorant prank, but they took full responsibility. Both members are young members in our organization. ... They didn’t even stop to think how this would affect members in both organizations and our citizens and especially our women firefighters.” He added that both culprits are “terrific individuals”

Conflict-of-interest case. Supreme Court will not hear appeal against Ford The Supreme Court of Canada decided Thursday it will not hear an appeal in a conflict-ofinterest case involving troubled Toronto Mayor Rob Ford. The appeal sought to restore a lower-court ruling, which last year found Ford in a conflict of interest and ordered him removed from office.

The matter dates to 2010, when Toronto’s integrity commissioner ruled that Ford — at the time a city councillor — had abused his position by using official letterhead and other council resources in fundraising letters which generated $3,150 for his football foundation. the canadian press

and said the act was “totally out of character” for them. Gord Ditchburn, president of the union that represents Vancouver firefighters, agreed with McKearney and said the Port Coquitlam fire department has accepted an apology from those responsible. “These two individuals have been model employees over the years and it was an incredibly stupid lack of judgment, and they regret this,” he said. “We do a tremendous amount of work to make sure that our workplace is very respectful.” Alleged abuse

Documents from Manitoba Family Services show the youngest of 23 children taken from their homes is nine months old; the oldest is 15. The documents don’t detail the alleged abuse. Two adults from the tiny orthodox community were charged in March with various counts of assault and assault with a weapon on several boys and girls between July 2011 and January of this year. This week, two more adults appeared in court to face similar charges involving 12 alleged victims. THE CANADIAN PRESS

One-third of women worldwide suffer domestic violence: WHO Report. Assault by an intimate partner found to be the most common kind of violence experienced by women

According to the UN, more than 600 million women live in countries where domestic violence is not considered a crime.

Africa, Middle East

About a third of women worldwide have been physically or sexually assaulted by a former or current partner, according to the first major review of violence against women.

lence as being slapped, pushed, punched, choked or attacked with a weapon. Sexual violence was defined as being physically forced to have sex, having sex because you were afraid of what your partner might do and being compelled to do

something sexual that was humiliating or degrading. The report also examined rates of sexual violence against women by someone other than a partner and found about seven per cent of women worldwide had previ-

ously been a victim. In conjunction with the report, WHO issued guidelines for authorities to spot problems earlier and said all health workers should be trained to recognize when women may be at risk and how to respond

appropriately. Globally, the WHO review found 30 per cent of women are affected by domestic or sexual violence by a partner. The report was based largely on studies from 1983 to 2010. the associated press

The rate of domestic violence against women was highest in Africa, the Middle East and Southeast Asia, where 37 per cent of women experienced physical or sexual violence from a partner at some point in their lifetime.

RCMP probe 2nd senator in widening expense scandal Court documents. Mac Harb under investigation as 11 Duffy-linked Tories get pulled into the fray The police investigation into the Senate expenses scandal grew wider Thursday with the release of court documents that indicate the Mounties are now looking into a second senator. Documents released from the Ottawa courthouse show the RCMP’s Sensitive and International Investigations unit has obtained property records for a house in Cobden, Ont., once owned by Sen. Mac Harb. Property records show Harb sold the house at 62 Durack Line Rd. in Cobden, about 120 kilometres west of Ottawa, two years ago. The court documents mark the first acknowledgment that

the RCMP is investigating Harb. Cpl. Lucy Shorey, a spokeswoman for the RCMP, declined further comment. “We are not in a position to comment any further at this time,” Shorey wrote in an email.

The name “Project Amble” is written under the heading “Nature of Event” on the exhibit report. It’s unclear if the name refers only to the Harb investigation or to the Senate probe more broadly. Harb, a Liberal who now

sits as an independent, is among the senators in trouble for improperly claimed living expenses. Following an external audit, Harb was ordered to repay $51,500 in housing and living expenses claimed over the two-

year period of the audit. But the Senate has since demanded that he repay $231,649, covering eight years. Harb filed a court application Monday to have the Senate’s repayment order quashed.

Taliban offer to free U.S. soldier in exchange for senior operatives Prisoner exchange. U.S. noncommittal about proposal to trade Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, held since 2009 The Taliban proposed a deal in which they would free a U.S. soldier held captive since 2009 in exchange for five of their most senior operatives at Guantanamo Bay, while Afghan President Hamid Karzai eased his opposition Thursday to joining planned peace talks. The idea of releasing these Taliban prisoners has been controversial. U.S. negotiators hope they would join the peace process but fear they might simply return to the battlefield, and Karzai once scuttled a similar deal partly because he felt the Americans were usurping his authority. The proposal to trade U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl for

Bergdahl’s family waits

Bergdahl’s parents earlier this month received a letter from their son through the International Committee of the Red Cross. • They did not release details of the letter but renewed their plea for his release. • The soldier’s captivity has been marked by only sporadic releases of videos and information about his whereabouts.

the Taliban detainees was made by senior Taliban spokesman Shaheen Suhail in response to a question during a phone interview from the militants’ newly opened political office in Doha, the capital of Qatar. The prisoner exchange is the first item on the Taliban’s

agenda before even starting peace talks with the U.S., said Suhail, a top Taliban figure who served as first secretary at the Afghan Embassy in the Pakistani capital of Islamabad before the Taliban government’s ouster in 2001. “First has to be the release of detainees,” Suhail said Thursday. “Yes. It would be an exchange. Then step by step, we want to build bridges of confidence to go forward.” The Obama administration was noncommittal about the proposal, which it said it had expected the Taliban to make. “We’ve been very clear on our feelings about Sgt. Bergdahl and the need for him to be released,” State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said. “We have not made a decision to ... transfer any Taliban detainees from Guantanamo Bay, but we anticipate, as I’ve said, that the Taliban will all raise this issue.” the associated press

shot in the face and neck could only communicate by blinking his eyes, but those blinks helped lead to what could end up as life in prison for the man convicted of murdering him. Ricardo Woods, 35, was sentenced Thursday to 36 years to life in prison for the murder of David Chandler. The murder trial drew national attention when the judge allowed jurors to see a

The defence tried to block the video, saying Chandler’s blinks were inconsistent and unreliable. Woods showed no visible emotion as the judge sentenced him Thursday. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Twitter executive crossing over to Obama’s team

MP questions leniency shown to ad mogul

The White House says Twitter executive Nicole Wong is joining the Obama administration as the deputy U.S. chief technology officer. Wong has also been a vice-president at Google and testified before Congress about how the company protects users’ privacy. Internet privacy has become a major issue for the White House following revelations about the massive collection of data from phone and Internet companies.

British Labour Party lawmaker Sandra Osborne asked in the House of Commons Thursday if there is one rule for the rich and famous, and another rule for everyone else after police gave Nigella Lawson’s husband a “caution” after advertising mogul Charles Saatchi, 70, admitted assaulting the celebrity chef in a restaurant. In photos published Thursday, Lawson, 53, was shown not to be wearing her wedding band.

Joblessness. Canadian youth at risk of chronic unemployment: CIBC

Going to see World War Z this weekend? Cineplex will soon start selling the SuperTicket, a hybrid of both movie admission and a digital download of the same film. Jaap Buitendijk/Paramount Pictures

New Cineplex ticket lets you download film later Movies. Deal with major studios means theatre patrons can pre-order digital copy Canadians who would like to own the films they’ve just seen at the theatre will soon have a chance to double-up at the box office, as part of an agreement between Cineplex

Inc. and several major Hollywood studios. The country’s largest theatre chain is about to launch SuperTicket, a hybrid of both a movie admission and digital download of the same film. When movie-watchers buy their Cineplex ticket either online or at the box office, they’ll also have the option to pre-order a digital copy of the same film. The online version will become available to them

“I’m convinced that by the end of the summer, we will have at least, if not all of them, 95 per cent of them.” Cineplex president and chief

Keep the summer memories forever with an Olympus TG-2 iHS camera.

A new report says Canadian youth face the risk of chronic unemployment despite being more educated than ever. The report by CIBC says a lack of summer jobs and parttime work makes it difficult for youth to gain the experience necessary for permanent positions. About 420,000 youth aged 15 to 24, or nearly one in 10 young Canadians, are neither employed nor enrolled in school. CIBC deputy chief economist Benjamin Tal, the study’s author, says these youth likely do

not have the skills necessary to compete in the labour market and will likely remain chronically unemployed. The report suggests combining education and work-related training to help youth find jobs while in school. It also says that the government and corporate Canada should be more focused and effective in preventing further worsening of the situation. “For Canada’s economy to grow and our standard of living to remain high, this is an imperative,” Tal said. The Canadian Press

Social media. Instagram adds 15-second video clips Facebook is adding video to its popular photo-sharing app Instagram, following on the heels of Twitter’s growing video-sharing app, Vine. Instagram co-founder Kevin Systrom said Thursday that users will be able to record and share 15-second clips by tapping a video icon in the app. They can also apply filters to videos to add contrast, or make them black and white or different hues. “This is the same Instagram we all know and love but it moves,” he said at an event held at Facebook’s Menlo Park, Calif., headquarters.

Obama mistakes chancellor for soul singer Politics can be hard on the ego, as British Treasury chief George Osborne learned when U.S. President Barack Obama apparently forgot his name at this week’s G8 summit. Britain’s Sun and Financial Times newspapers reported Thursday that Obama repeatedly referred to the Chancellor of the Exchequer as “Jeffrey” — and later apologized, saying he had been thinking of soul singer Jeffrey Osborne. Jeffrey Osborne, whose hits include On the Wings of Love, said he was delighted the president was a big fan. The Associated Press

NASA shows how lush our Earth is Scientists have collected a year’s worth of satellite observations to create a series of images showing the entire world’s vegetation. NASA spent 12 months gathering data from its Suomi National Polarorbiting Partnership satellite to reveal the stark contrasts between lush, green and dry, arid regions of Earth.

NASA’s Suomi NPP measures plant growth, vegetation cover and biomass production from satellite information. It is calculated from the visible and near-infrared light reflected by vegetation. The data is also used to measure cloud and aerosol properties, ocean colour, sea and land surface temperature, ice motion, fires and the planet’s albedo (reflected sunlight). METRO

RICHARD CROUSE AND MARK BRESLIN

Zombie film needs life World War Z. Brad-Pitt-helmed apocalyptic thriller a victim of dim lighting and lacklustre action

possible to see Brad laying a whooping on the undead, which is the whole reason you buy a ticket to a movie like this.

Richard: Mark, I like zombie movies. I also like Brad Pitt, so I’m disappointed that World War Z feels a bit dead on its feet. It has several thrilling scenes — the zombie hordes crawling over one another to scale a giant wall is really cool — but it doesn’t even have the oomph of an episode of The Walking Dead. I know zombie apocalypses happen in dimly lit places, but the low light in the first hour of the movie makes it almost im-

Mark: Richard, low light means less makeup for the aging Mr. Pitt. But I liked this movie, and I’m not a fan of zombie flicks. The movie reminded me of Contagion but with corporeal viruses that you could actually see. The gore is tasteful, which not everybody will like, but it meant I could concentrate on the story and Pitt’s haircut. But you’re right about the low light. At times I thought I was watching a grad thesis from the Canadian Film Centre. RC: The “aging” Mr. Pitt still looks better than I do on my

eyewear

best day, low light or not. My problem with it had more to do with not be able to see what was going on. This is a 3D action movie that actively tries to not show you all three dimensions of a good chunk of the action. It builds some atmosphere, but anyone with any braaaaains would have turned up the lights. On the other hand an exciting scene on an airplane really shows what a horror it is to fly in economy class. MB: Ha! That was one of the good scenes, as was the entire Israel sequence, which I think was making a sly point about the limitations of a fortress-state. The long scene in the research facility felt like an exercise in taut, old-fashioned moviemaking, and the opening chase on the

highway was harrowing and involving. But let’s talk about the real stars of the picture: the zombies. They moved fast, which I liked, and often as a mass, frighteningly, by the thousands, creating an indelible image of a foe that may not just be zombies, but communists. RC: It’s just that the movie doesn’t offer up any really great zombie one-on-one head splitting action à la The Walking Dead or great characters. One or the other would have breathed some life into this movie. MB: Outside of Pitt, none of the characters really stick out, with one exception: David Morse’s cameo as a turncoat CIA agent. Scarier than the zombies.

•••••

•••••

There’s nothing quite like a Sofia Coppola directed flick. Her latest, the based-on-fact The Bling Ring is ripe with her bright, breezy, sensual style, charting as it does the days and nights in the lives of a gaggle of spoiled, empty rich kids obsessed enough by celebrity that they stalk and then rob the homes of the glitterati. Gently riffing on just how dour our social-networkdamaged, empty-calorie-obsessed society has become, the movie almost plays like a horror film, albeit one laced with pummelling electro-pop music. A work of serious pop art.

If you’re a fan of the “Before” movies, watching Before Midnight will be like reconnecting with old friends. In the almost 20 years since we first met Jesse and Celine (Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy) they have flirted and talked through the vagaries of life in two films, Before Sunset and Before Sunrise. Now they are a committed couple with twin daughters, but their introspection continues courtesy of beautifully written and performed conversations that explore how fissures can develop no matter how deep a couple’s connection.

••••• With films like Wall-E and Ratatouille, Pixar became as known for developing thoughtful, streamlined family fare as it did for animation advancements, but Monsters University shows these pioneers could be losing their sharpness. A prequel to 2001’s Monsters, Inc., the standard storyline follows unassuming eyeball Mike Wachowski as he struggles to succeed in the schooling of scaring kiddies. Sure, it’s fun and froth for the preteen set but the film’s simplified formula simply falls flat against Pixar’s best work. steve gow

Roland Emmerich, director of White House Down and Independence Day, says the West Wing gave him the cold shoulder this time around. handout

Two White House flicks, one summer White House Down. Independence Day director didn’t get a chance to decimate America’s house of power this time Ned Ehrbar

Metro World News in Hollywood

Maybe it’s because he’s best known for blowing up the White House in Independence Day, but when director Roland Emmerich turned to the West Wing for help in making White House Down — his new film about the White House overrun by terrorists — he got the cold shoulder. “We applied for shooting permits and were denied,” Emmerich says with a laugh. “I don’t know why, it’s strange.” If the plot sounds familiar, it may be because there has already been one movie about terrorists taking over the White House this year. Given the success Olympus Has Fallen has already enjoyed, is Emmerich worried about comparisons? “No, not really worried. I mean,

maybe a little bit because naturally I would’ve been much happier being the first out, but also I didn’t want them to rush it,” he says. “I’m not terribly concerned. Hopefully it will work. We’ll see June 28 if this will go over nicely.” The fact that there are two White House takeover movies so close to each other is a total coincidence, Emmerich insists. “I had a White House project with Sony for 10, 15 years, and it never came together for several reasons. And so when they bought this spec script by Jamie Vanderbilt, they immediately thought of me and sent it to me the same day they bought it,” he says, explaining that work started very quickly on his new

project. “And then all of a sudden people said, ‘There’s another movie,’ and I said, ‘Really?’ And then I was so deep into it I couldn’t really get out of it. And I also didn’t want to.” But what is a coincidence, according to Emmerich, is the fact that movies with the president as a hero weren’t as popular while Bush was in the White House as they are now or they were under Clinton. “It’s not jingoistic when somebody like (Clinton or Obama) is in the White House to do a White House movie,” he says. “And also these are smart people and you can make them smart characters, which naturally was a little bit difficult under Bush.”

Before Midnight

No superheroes for Emmerich

A quick glance at Roland Emmerich’s filmography turns up an interesting fact: Just about everything he’s done has been an original film — not based on other source material or an existing franchise. It makes him something of an anomaly, of which he’s well aware. “It’s very hard to get original movies done these days,” he

says. “People tend to just like franchises. I don’t know what it is — and all over the world. It’s not just in America.” But don’t expect him to change his ways anytime soon: “I have, for example, a hard time making a movie about a comic book hero because I didn’t grow up with comics. For me they kind of inevitably feel silly,” he says.

How much dumber can this guy get? Dumb and Dumber To. Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels are set to reprise their roles as the inept Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne

Jeff Daniels says that Harry Dunne hasn’t gained one IQ point in 20 years. the associated press

NOW!

Nearly 20 years after Dumb and Dumber was released, Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels are reuniting for Dumb and Dumber To. Daniels said Carrey approached directors Peter and Bobby Farrelly two years ago about doing a sequel. “Jim has been against all sequels, and you know, understandably so. ... But he turned 50 and that will mellow you out, and suddenly he’s going, ‘Let’s have some fun. ... Come on,’ and we’re going, ‘Great,’ and so the Farrellys said, ‘This isn’t a money grab. Let’s really write a great

second movie that takes the original and then blows it up even further, and so I think they did that,” Daniels said in an interview Wednesday. Universal Pictures, which acquired the domestic distribution rights after Warner Bros. dropped out, confirmed the sequel. “It’s taken two years to get the studios and all that stuff worked out,” Daniels said. “The easiest thing to say in Hollywood is ‘no.’ You keep your job if you say ‘no.’ If you say ‘yes’ and you’re not right, you lose your job. There’s a lot of ‘no.’ And we had a lot of ‘no’ for two years and finally ‘yes,’ it’s comin’ around, and I think it’s got a chance to be I hope better than the first one.” Daniels said he’s read the script and calls it “painfully funny.” The original premise wasn’t that deep. It followed two well-meaning but moronic friends, Lloyd Christmas

Jeff Daniels

Daniels, 58, is known for his critically acclaimed roles in The Squid and the Whale and The Purple Rose of Cairo. He stars as a cable news anchor in the HBO series The Newsroom, which returns for its second season on July 14.

(Carrey) and Harry Dunne (Daniels), as they travelled cross-country to find the owner of a briefcase filled with money. “We’re middle-aged and still that stupid. Our IQ has not gone up one point combined,” he said. “So it’s a frightening thing. You’re gonna see the two of us standing there trying to put thoughts together and you want to put underneath, ‘Kids don’t do this at home.’ It’s that stupid.” The Associated Press

The devil is back. And she’s still wearing Prada. Ten years after The Devil Wears Prada, the main character, Andy, is back for a sequel, Revenge Wears Prada. Author Lauren Weisberger kicked off the launch this month, complete with pink drinks, champagne and plenty of the alternating red- and white-covered books. Metro spoke with Weisberger at the Gilt City launch party in New York City. She said that after surveying a decade of changes herself, she wanted to explore what Andy’s life would be like 10 years on.

In the book, Andy — engaged and now helming her own magazine — encounters fresh challenges of her own while also preparing to walk down the aisle. One of those challenges? Well, we’ll let you guess, but it includes a familiar face. How did you decide to bring back Andy for a new book? I’d been thinking about it for a really long time. So much happens in all of our lives in 10 years. I just got really curious about what would be going on with Andy and Emily and the whole crew. I thought it would be really fun to not just check in with them and pick up their story 10 years later, but to create a whole 10-year backstory, so it was kind of the best of both worlds.

characters? It was a little strange, but I really liked it. It’s great and it’s fun to sit down with an empty screen, and you can just start from scratch. For me, the challenge came in wanting to stay true to them, wanting to keep them the same people that the readers recognized and connected with the first time, but also letting them grow up and face their own obstacles. What will Andy face in this new book that she wouldn’t have faced 10 years ago? Ten years ago she was wideeyed, fresh-faced, straight out of college, super naive. And 10 years have gone by, and she’s way more experienced in the industry now. She’s doing what she loves, which is writing. She’s founded this magazine, and I think she’s much more confident, much more sure of herself. She’s a proper grown-up.

How was it different writing this book than your other novels, where you started fresh with brand-new

Stop shaking and hold on a minute Taking their sweet time. Alabama Shakes frontwoman Brittany Howard says band in no rush to make second LP For those impatiently anticipating new music from southern-fried blues-rock breakouts Alabama Shakes, frontwoman Brittany Howard has a familiar message: be patient. “I think writing-wise we’ve gotten better and we’ve gotten more detailed and we’ve just gotten tighter, really. I think the only thing I want is more time,” Howard said in a telephone interview last week from her home in Athens, Ala. “I know people want another record. But we’d been playing these songs for like three years before people heard the old record, Boys & Girls. It’s time for us to write new songs and I don’t want to be rushed doing it, because we weren’t rushed before. So I’m gonna take my time.” It’s hard to blame Howard The good life

for wanting to duplicate what was obviously a winning approach to the band’s headturning debut. That record — an appealing set of rock songs drenched in blues, soul and gospel — dropped last April, receiving positive reviews and eventually racking up gold sales in the U.S. and U.K. The band was nominated for three Grammy Awards at February’s gala, including a nod in the major best new artist category. While they didn’t take an award, they left the night winners after Howard put her mighty vocals on display during a tribute to the Band’s late singer Levon Helm. Though in her mid-20s, she has a soulful, smoky instrument that sounds as though it belongs to a wizened vet twice her age. On Thursday, the band has a sold-out show at Toronto’s Echo Beach, with

concerts in Vancouver, Edmonton and Calgary to follow in late July. With her load-bearing pipes, lively stage presence and unique, self-taught style of playing guitar, Howard is the unquestioned focus of the quartet’s live performances. She says she’s still adjusting to that spotlight. “Some days, yeah I’m comfortable, and some days I’m nervous,” she said with a chuckle. But having spent time at home recently has given Howard even more perspective on what’s changed. “I didn’t really have a house a year ago,” she said. “I lived in a room a year ago. Now I have a house here in Athens. So yeah, it’s a lot different. It’s awesome. I have my friends come over. I just treat ’em good, I treat ’em right — because I’m able to.”

After tragedies and time, Rogue Wave rolls back in New album. Zach Schwartz talks about the motivations behind Nightingale Floors and how they’ve gotten through the ebbs and flows of life Nolan Gawron

Metro World News

After taking some time off between Rogue Wave records, Zach Schwartz (a.k.a Zach Rogue) and company are back on tour supporting their recent LP Nightingale Floors, their fifth full-length album, and the first on Vagrant Records. “I needed a break in general, you know — from everything,” says Schwartz. “Just being on the road with Permalight — to play those songs live was not easy to do and it didn’t seem to sound like us. I didn’t like the trajectory of where we were going live and I had to take some time away and get some perspective. I did this band called Release the Sunbird and I also scored a TV show for HBO (On Freddie Roach.) I think both of those experiences are what led me to make Nightingale Floors.” Permalight, Rogue Wave’s 2010 release, was seen by many to be a marked departure from the band’s signature sound — including Schwartz himself. “Everything is a reaction to something else,” he says. “We started to do Permalight and I had all of these physical

On the core of the band and working together. • Quote. “It’s always about me and Pat, ever since we met. Either we’re on parallel (levels) or if I’m doing a vocal track he’s on some

weird instrument tracking onto his computer or 4-track machine. We pull all the tracks together we like and mix them up … like salad. We’re a salad band. A quilty, salady band,” said Zach Schwartz.

problems where I couldn’t move my body and I had lost feeling in my hand, so I felt that I wasn’t able to do any playing. At the time I want-

ed to make really rhythmic dance-beat music because I was excited to just be playing again. The problem is we are not really a dancey band.

It’s great, but it’s not great for us. We’re supposed to be a little more loose — that’s our sound — and it ebbs and flows. We don’t have perfection; we have expression. It was an experiment and I’m glad we did it, but I think Nightingale Floors is much closer to how we play.” Schwartz says his hand hasn’t totally healed, but he’s feeling better. “I try and bandage it. It’s not as bad as it was, which was great. There’s some things; my hand is still numb, but I’ve learned to deal with that and I’m not bedridden. Well, not yet,” he says. Together with longtime collaborator Pat Spurgeon, Rogue Wave are back to that summertime sound that has come to define the band’s catalogue. But look deeper and you’ll realize that the poppy hooks and inherent hopefulness that ease into their breezy melodic instrumentation often mask the melancholy of the lyrics that lurk underneath their swooning harmonies. No strangers to bad luck and tragedy, besides his own personal health problems, Rogue lost his friend and former bassist Evan Farrell in complications following a house fire, and Spurgeon almost lost his life from kidney failure. “These are songs about letting go of the past and trying to have control over things that you can never, ever control,” says Schwartz. “You can’t control the fact that you’re going to die. Everyone you know is going to, and all you can do is just accept it and really live.”

TV movie. Convicted killer’s story hits the small screen and surprisingly manages to engross and entertain

WE HAVE OVER 330 NEW AND 850 USED VEHICLES AVAILABLE! 2012

She doesn’t boil a pet bunny. But Jodi Arias displays wicked knife technique in a new Lifetime movie that could have just as well been titled Fatal Attraction for Cable News. Premiering Saturday at 8 p.m. ET on Lifetime, Jodi Arias: Dirty Little Secret is a ripped-from-cable-news saga of a woman scorned who last month was found guilty of killing her former lover, motivational speaker Travis Alexander. On June 4, 2008, Arias stabbed and slashed him nearly 30 times, slit his throat and shot him in the head in what prosecutors said was jealous rage, and what Arias unpersuasively argued was self-defence, when, according to her, he attacked her. But you know all that. Dirty Little Secret unearths no secrets, dirty or otherwise. Every sordid detail, it seems, has been trumpeted for years by the media, then recycled for months during Arias’ trial in Phoenix that got blanket coverage on TV and in particular on cable’s HLN, vaulting that network to record ratings. Now comes the inevitable made-for-TV film. Portraying what led up to the crime, it’s tucked handily between the May verdict for the murder trial and the July retrial in the life-or-death penalty phase. The big surprise: Dirty Little Secret is a pretty good

film. It’s a draw-you-in, sudsy melodrama stocked with guilty pleasures: romance, sex, obsession, betrayal and vengeance. Tania Raymonde (perhaps best remembered as Alex Rousseau on Lost) is swell as Jodi, with a remarkable likeness to this young woman no man could resist, at least not Travis as he fought a losing battle with his Mormon principles to feast on this forbidden fruit. Jesse Lee Soffer makes a fine Travis — glib, blandly wholesome and all too relatable in his mission to have it both ways, relationship-wise: treating Jodi as a red-hot plaything while he nurtures a “suitable” wife-worthy prospect. Trouble arises, of course, as love-struck Jodi bridles at the strictly recreational role she plays in Travis’ life. Even joining the Mormon church can’t earn her an upgrade from her booty-call status. Travis argues that he never promised more. When Jodi was

gazing into his eyes, he tells her, “You saw lust. You saw weakness. But you didn’t see love. It was never there.” So, for a time, Travis thrives as a satisfied two-timer, while Jodi is increasingly desperate to please. “I just want to be the girl that he wants,” she tells a chum. Then she snaps. Dirty Little Secret charts a step-by-step, we-all-knowwhere-this-is-headed run-up to her grisly payback, a scene lyrically staged as a slow-motion massacre to give the audience equal doses of horror and dramatic catharsis after having witnessed Travis push her past the breaking point. Well done. It’s dandy entertainment and the film also serves as a refreshing alternative for telling the tale, dramatized for maximum titillation while, in its tidy, two-hour package, efficiently stripping away the wretched excess.

Don is draped over a moral abyss Mad Men. While the ladies step up will the lead character’s destructive deeds see him seek redemption or carry on as usual? Breaking up is hard to do. That is, unless you’re in Mad Men, which this season has been free-and-easy in its fragmentation. By now Peggy Olson and her radical beau are splitsville. So are Pete Campbell and wife Trudy, who caught him philandering one too many times. Twice-wed Roger Sterling, currently solo, saw his knotty relationship with his mom torn asunder with her death this season, and he’s alienated from his daughter and grandson. And don’t forget the latest romantic entanglement of Don Draper, whose marriage to winsome Megan seemed on suicide watch as, every chance he got, he scorched the sheets with downstairs neighbour Sylvia.

Jon Hamm’s character Don Draper is on a downward spiral. The associated press

The only notable comingtogether: the stormy merger of Sterling, Cooper, Draper and Pryce with former rival ad agency Cutler, Gleason and Chaough, which has assembled a bickering band of ad execs only slightly more collegial than either house of Congress.

Is the unmoored zeitgeist of 1968 to blame for this season’s pattern of upheavals? Does the Vietnam War, the assassinations and riots help account for the turmoil on the show? Or the ’60s drug culture? Whatever, the psyches on Mad Men in this, its sixth and pen-

ultimate season, seem to be unravelling as the season finale approaches (Sunday at 10 p.m. EDT on AMC). The male psyches, anyway. On the other hand, the sisters increasingly are doin’ it for themselves. Peggy Olson is stronger, more clear-eyed and

outspoken than ever. Tough, pneumatic Joan Harris, has truly come into her own in recent weeks, notably when she went rogue and landed a major account all by herself (a no-no for a woman in this Alpha Male shop). All in all, it’s been a satisfy-

ing, illuminating season well served by the superb cast. This season, as usual, Mad Men stuck to its elliptical ways, rarely saying too much or gobsmacking the viewer with an OMG moment. All the more shocking, then, when in a recent episode — by the worst mischance — Don’s teenage daughter, Sally, caught Don in the sack with Sylvia. For a girl already alienated by her parents’ divorce, by her own roiling adolescence and perhaps by the youth rebellion the ’60s, this is traumatic. And Don knows it. Throughout the season, he seems to have hastened a downward slide. Not only has his private life been extra messy, he has also sabotaged his agency’s campaigns. Now, after Sally barged in on him, his shame is beyond measure. At last week’s fadeout, viewers left him in a state of surrender: on his office couch, curled in a fetal position. Among the questions for the season finale: How can Don begin the process of redeeming himself ? And will he? The associated press

Susan Lucci maid to make ’em laugh and be devious Devious Maids. Multifaceted actress looking forward to being part of new show that follows the lives of five Hispanic house servants

Susan Lucci and executive producer Eva Longoria. invision for lifetime/ap photo

For decades, audiences knew her as a dramatic — some may even say melodramatic — soap actress, but there is another side to Susan Lucci. “She is so hysterically funny, and I think that is something really new and interesting because I don’t think people have seen her be this funny and this free,” says Ana Ortiz, who stars with Lucci on the new Lifetime series Devious Maids. “I used to look at people on film doing comedy and my hat goes off to them,” says Lucci. “‘How do they do that with so many takes, so many bits and pieces?’ I already had so much

respect for them.” Premiering this Sunday, the series follows five Hispanic maids who work for some of the wealthiest and most powerful families in Beverly Hills. As the season is unveiled, the maids show they can be as devilish, scheming and witty as their employers. Devious Maids is executive produced by Eva Longoria and Marc Cherry — the man who also created Desperate Housewives. “Just the name Marc Cherry. ‘Marc Cherry has a new show? Yes, I would like Excited

to be a part of that.’ Then, when I read the script it was a page turner,” says Lucci, who plays one of the high-society mavens. “There are hilarious aspects and then there are intriguing things: the twists, the turns, the surprises. He does them so well. “All the characters,” says Lucci, “are fully realized characters. There is not one cardboard, cartoon in the entire group.” “There is funny, heart, drama and sex,” adds Ortiz, who played Hilda Suarez on Ugly Betty. It, like Devious Maids, was based on a successful Spanish-language TV show that aired in Latin and South America. “I have had good luck with these novellas-turnedAmerican shows. For me it was a no-brainer. There is, for lack of a better term, a real upstairs/ downstairs quality that I think people are really tuning into right now,” says Ortiz. “It’s the two worlds colliding.” Metro

Controversy

Criticism. While it hasn’t officially aired yet, Devious Maids has already faced criticism for its portrayal of Hispanic women as servants, criticism that Eva Longoria, who executive produces the series with Marc Cherry, takes exception to. Response. “You are telling me their stories aren’t worth telling, that maids are not complex, that they don’t have a life, that they don’t have a story to tell? They do,” Longoria says, who adds mothers who worked as maids have raised many successful Hispanic people in the U.S. “With the demographic of the United States changing rapidly we should represent our diverse country on television.”

Tinker with the perfection that is this season’s finest treat by sandwiching it between some delicious additions When it comes to enjoying an ice cream sandwich buffet, encourage your guests to get a little crazy.

When you think of French wines, what place first comes to mind? I asked a cross section of wine lovers (OK, my drinking buddies) and they all came up with the same thing: Bordeaux. Bordeaux is the original home of grape kings like Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, along with some of the most gorgeous real estate in the wine world. This region is where the château hits the fan. I recently had a chance to tour Château Mouton Rothschild, one of the classiest wine estates in France and the home of its famous red with the prestigious First Growth status. That kind of wine comes with a price. A recent vintage of Mouton will set you back more than $1,000. But there’s more to the winery than their superstar bottle. It also makes Mouton Cadet, a pair of wines (red and white) that have been shipped to Canada for decades. Though the region is red wine territory, its whites are true undiscovered gems. The 2011 Mouton Cadet Blanc ($12.99 to $15.99) is fresh and bright with a light citrus expression that works wonders with a seafood menu. PRICES REFLECT THE RANGE ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

National Aboriginal day

Weekend, June 21-23, 2013

Celebration

Chris Edwards For Metro

Friday is National Aboriginal Day, a celebration of all Aboriginal cultures in Canada, and of the contributions those cultures make to this country today. Recognizing the heritage of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples, it is a learning experience for all of us. It’s a lot of fun, too. National Aboriginal Day was first celebrated June 21, 1996, having been proclaimed the week before by then governor general Roméo LeBlanc. The date was mean-

ingful — June 21 marks the summer solstice, the longest day of the year, one recognized with festivals in many Aboriginal societies. The National Indian Brotherhood (now the Assembly of First Nations) had called for formal recognition of the date nearly 15 years before. Today, NAD events are held across the country, open to all. This year’s list includes familyfriendly events like pancake breakfasts, games, art and museum displays, powwows and more, in communities as far-flung as Regina, New Westminster, B.C., Montreal, and Thunder Bay, Ont.

Success stories appearing on YouTube With the growing popularity of online video sharing sites such as YouTube, Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada has produced a series of “success story” videos to engage Canadians and raise awareness of the benefits of resolving

specific claims with First Nation communities. “Many Canadians are unaware of all the unique projects, investments and partnerships that are taking place in First Nations communities across the country, thanks in large part to negotiated

settlements,” says Anik Dupont, director general of the specific claims branch of Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada. The entire video series is available at youtube.com/ AANDCanada or by visiting aandc.gc.ca. News Canada

Film can shape attitudes Chris Edwards For Metro

Jesse Wente is the head of film programmes at TIFF Bell Lightbox. Contributed

Range of societies

National Aboriginal Day gives all Canadians the chance to learn about Aboriginal history and identity. But to do that, we must overcome more than a century’s worth of misconceptions — many perpetuated, and even created, by the film industry.

Jesse Wente (Ojibwa) is the head of film programmes at TIFF Bell Lightbox in Toronto. He curated last year’s First Peoples Cinema: 1500 Nations, One Tradition — a film program spotlighting films directed by First Peoples from around the world, including First Nations peoples, Inuit, and Métis. The following is an interview with Wente.

Q

How much power do you think film has to shape public attitudes about a given group? It’s quite huge. If you look at the history of indigenous people, particularly in North America, for the last 100 years or so anyway, popular understanding did come from film. Perhaps more so in the U.S., but I won’t let Canadians off the hook. It’s

A

Q

Proud of our past, Excited for our future.

The Canadian Constitution recognizes three groups of Aboriginal Peoples — Indians (First Nations), Inuit, and Métis. Within each of these groups can be found a range of societies and cultures, defined and distinguished from one another by geography, religion, and politics.

On National Aboriginal Day, Bow Valley College proudly celebrates the opening of our new Aboriginal Centre.

First Nations The term has been used to refer to both status and non-status Indian peoples in Canada. There are 634 First Nation communities (reserves) with First Nation governments across the country.

why there is such a misunderstanding about the actual history of this continent. Representations of indigenous peoples onscreen started at the dawn of cinema — some of the very first films ever made, by Thomas Edison, were of indigenous dancers. We’re talking 1894. This was before there were movie theatres. What’s interesting is that, since the late-1970s, indigenous artists have increasingly been responding to that history. You’ve written that, early on, indigenous cinema was dominated by documentarians. Were they trying to set the record straight? Early indigenous documentary filmmakers were trying to capture events, as they happened, from a perspective they would recognize. Events were unfolding that those filmmakers felt compelled to capture from an indigenous perspective ... Up until then, you very rarely saw contemporary indigenous people depicted onscreen. National Aboriginal Day recognizes three groups: First Nations, Inuit, and Métis. Do you think the Métis experience has been as well-represented within the indigenous new wave as have the experiences of First Nations and Inuit? No, probably not … But I think that’s more a product of a lack of Métis filmmakers, or a lack of ability to get those films made. I think they’re probably underrepresented, given the size of the population, and the fact that Inuit films are so highly regarded (as they should be — they’re some of the best films ever made in this country). But this will eventually work itself out, and we’ll get more Métis voices making and producing pictures.

Interview. Student desires to make a positive difference Approximately 10 per cent of the University of Regina’s students self-identify as Aboriginal. Moses Gordon is one of them. A history major beginning his fourth year of studies this fall, Gordon is also a band member of the George Gordon First Nation, born and raised in Regina. The following is an interview with Gordon. This summer you are working as a student assistant at U of R’s Aboriginal Student Centre (an on-cam-

What does National Aboriginal Day mean to

To me, National Aboriginal Day is a celebration of the vibrancy of Aboriginal culture today and its contributions to Canadian society … However, if it were a statutory holiday, more people would be free to participate in the festivities. With proper support, NAD could become a promising holiday, promoting and celebrating inclusivity among all Canadians. Chris Edwards

Rookies Lindsay Lamar and Raymond Brown gave Hamilton Tiger-Cats coach Kent Austin plenty to mull over Thursday night.

Argos backup QB building case to crack club Zach Collaros ran in one touchdown and threw for another to lead the Toronto Argonauts to a 24-20 victory over the Montreal Alouettes on Thursday in the final pre-season game for both teams. Collaros, who’s battling Trevor Harris for the Argos’ backup position, clinched the win in a homecoming of sorts for the defending Grey Cup champions when he threw a 29-yard touchdown to Juaquin Iglesias at 12:29 in the fourth quarter in front of 6,204 fans at Varsity Stadium. With CFL cutdown day looming on Saturday, Harris was 6-for-19 for 79 yards and a touchdown. Ricky Ray, meanwhile, started for the Grey Cup champion Argos, but threw just three incomplete passes in his brief playing time. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Hawks, Bruins shifting back to basics in Game 5 NHL playoffs. Exchanging chances not on to-do list for Chicago or Boston in Saturday’s cup clash Jonathan Toews didn’t think the Chicago Blackhawks would need six goals to win Game 4 of the Stanley Cup final. By the time Patrick Sharp scored with 8:41 left in the third period to make it 5-4, he figured it would be enough. It wasn’t, but the Blackhawks managed to tie the series when Brent Seabrook’s overtime goal gave them a 6-5 win over Boston. Still, they know they must adjust on the defensive end going back to Chicago for Game 5 Saturday night. “There’s a give-and-take as far as the quality and quantity we give up. We always meas-

ure how we play is what we give up,” coach Joel Quenneville said. “I just don’t think we want to just exchange scoring chances.... That’s not part of our game, and it’s not part of the way we want to play.”

That open style certainly suits the Blackhawks better than the Bruins, even as Claude Julien took exception to the notion that his team played “rough-and-tumble” hockey and not much else.

The World Hockey Association lasted less than a decade and has been defunct for more than 30 years. But the renegade league’s impact on professional hockey in North America then and now warranted recognition from Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame on Thursday. With help from WHA alumni, the Hall unveiled an exhibit featuring jerseys, photos and pennants from such teams as the Cleveland Crusaders, San Francisco Sharks, Calgary Broncos and New York Raiders. The conversation piece was a hockey stick that once belonged to a 17-year-old Wayne Gretzky who started his pro career with the Indianapolis Racers. The stick bears his name incorrectly spelled “W. Gretsky.” The Hall has scheduled an appreciation day for the WHA on Saturday. The Avco Cup, the championship trophy on loan from the Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame, will be on display. The public will

have an opportunity to meet players. “I’m actually quite surprised there is this recognition of the World Hockey Association,” former player Gerry Pinder said. “I don’t think I ever believed this was going to happen.” The WHA operated from 1972 to 1979 and lured dozens of NHL players to its clubs by offering higher salaries and the ability to move between teams. Bobby Hull, Gordie Howe, Derek Sanderson, Frank Mahovlich, Jacques Plante, Dave Keon, Pat Stapleton and Mark Messier are among the hockey luminaries who count themselves as WHA alumni. The NHL saw the WHA as a threat and expanded rapidly to keep WHA teams out of markets. The NHL also absorbed four WHA clubs when the league ceased operations in 1979. The WHA also aggressively recruited European players, of which there were few in the NHL at the time. For players, the WHA offered a chance to revolt against what they saw as the tyrannical NHL and get paid a lot more to play hockey.

Boston doesn’t want to get into an end-to-end game either, considering the ways Chicago can turn up the speed and offence. “I don’t think any coach likes the back-and-forth, exchanging chances,” Julien said. “Although it’s exciting for the fans, you’re looking for some zone time.” Eleven goals made for quite the departure from Games 2 and 3, when the teams combined for just five. It was just another twist in a series that Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane called “pretty bizarre.” Not so good for the coaches, goaltenders and defences involved. Game 4 was the first real rough night of the playoffs for Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask, even though most of the goals weren’t on him, and Quenneville had to reaffirm his stance Thursday that Corey Crawford would remain in net for the Blackhawks moving forward.

There are a number of storylines heading into the CFL regular season, which kicks off June 27. Here are five worth keeping an eye on: The Canadian Press

Hawkins era in Montreal

Argos’ quest to repeat

Dan Hawkins has a tough act to follow as the Montreal Alouettes head coach. Not only does he have no CFL coaching experience, he replaces Marc Trestman, who led the club to a 59-31 regular-season record and two Grey Cup wins over five seasons before being named head coach of the NFL’s Chicago Bears.

The Toronto Argonauts will attempt to win consecutive Grey Cup titles for the first time since 1996-97. Toronto captured the 100th Grey Cup last year with a new head

1 3 5 No Ticats in Steeltown

The Hamilton TigerCats will play their home games in Guelph, Ont., as a new venue is being built where Ivor Wynne Stadium once stood. The Ticats missed the playoffs last year with a 6-12 record, costing head coach/GM George Cortez his job after just one season.

Riders look to keep streak alive

Serving as Grey Cup host has proven quite beneficial the last two years. In 2011, the BC Lions beat Winnipeg at BC Place before Toronto dispatched Calgary last year at Rogers Centre. This year’s game will be played at Mosaic Stadium in Regina, which puts the onus on the Saskatchewan Roughriders to keep the home streak alive.

coach (Scott Milanovich) and quarterback (Ricky Ray), and both return with a year together under their belt.

Much change in B.C.

BC Lions GM Wally Buono re-signed freeagent receiver Emmanuel Arceneaux as well as QB Travis Lulay, OLs Jovan Oliafoye and Ben Archibald and LB Solomon Elimimian. The most significant move involved Geroy Simon, who was traded to Saskatchewan after 12 seasons in Vancouver.

Money matters

Messi to face questioning on tax fraud claims Lionel Messi and his father were ordered by a Spanish court on Thursday to appear for questioning in September as part of an investigation into tax fraud allegations. A court in the Mediterranean coastal town of Gava near Barcelona accepted a state prosecutor’s complaint alleging Messi and father Jorge defrauded the Spanish tax office of 4 million euros ($5.3 million US). The Barcelona and Argentina star and his father will appear before Judge Anju Deb Rani in Gava on Sept. 17. That will form part of an investigation to determine whether grounds exist to charge them with tax evasion. If charged and found guilty, Messi and his father could face a fine amounting to 150 per cent of the concealed earnings and between two and six years in prison. The associated Press

PLAY

Sept. 24 - Oct. 23 You have made one concession too many and now you must put your foot down and let others know the free ride is over. You may not want to be aggressive about it but you must make it clear you mean business.

Taurus

Scorpio

Oct. 24 - Nov. 22 Your confidence is high now that the Sun is moving in your favour again but don’t take foolish risks. Socially, you will be in demand and an invitation of some kind could even lead to a new business opportunity.

April 21 - May 21 You may be baffled by some of the things that have gone on in recent weeks but now they are behind you, put them out of your mind.

Gemini

May 22 - June 21 So you made an error of judgment. You are human like everyone else and make mistakes like everyone else. That you made that error means you at least had the guts to try something new.

Sagittarius

Nov. 23 - Dec. 21 It would appear someone is trying to pressure you into doing something you don’t really care for. No matter how strongly they come at you, don’t give in.

Cancer

Capricorn

June 22 - July 23 You may not see eye-to-eye with someone but that does not mean you are destined to fall out. A lot depends on how willing you are to accept that what they do and say is just as valid as what you do and say.

Dec. 22 - Jan. 20 You won’t be in the least bit shy about telling people what they should be doing today — and if they’re smart they will listen to you and act on your recommendations. You can see more clearly than they can.

Leo

Aquarius

July 24 - Aug. 23 You will change your opinion about something that only a few days ago you seemed so sure about. The problem is that nothing is static, not even your thoughts. Just accept it.

Jan. 21 - Feb. 19 Your attitude towards an issue of some kind will change today. It may even be the opposite of how you thought about it before. In the middle somewhere lies the truth.
