Lukaszuk. Labour crunch ‘compounded’ by June flood

Parents from Calgary’s northwest community of Royal Oak are seen cheering in May as the provincial government gave the green light to a new school in their area. The province announced Thursday it will go the public-private partnership route to build that facility and eight others in Calgary by 2016. METRO FILE

New schools likely to open amid 2016 election season Public-private partnerships. Opposition alleges the Tories are using children as pawns JEREMY NOLAIS

jeremy.nolais@metronews.ca

Finishing touches will be put on new schools across Alberta just in time for the 2016 election season if the Tories stay true to a construction timeline laid out Thursday. The province announced it will go the public-private partnership (P3) route on 19 of 28 new schools, including eight of nine in Calgary and

both projects planned for Edmonton. The plan is to save $50 million through partnering and have all P3 facilities ready for staff and school supplies in June 2013, said provincial Infrastructure Minister Wayne Drysdale. But opposition critics couldn’t help but notice that the timeline for the schools would see their completion come just months after a likely 2016 provincial ballot. “Why a year and a half after the (2012) election are we announcing finally that we’re finally going to start getting shovels in the ground?” questioned Wildrose education critic Bruce McAllister. “Well, they do make for a great photo op at election time, don’t they?”

In numbers

• The Calgary Board of Education expects its schools to be 87 per cent full by the time any of its six newly planned facilities open in 2016. • The board also anticipates needing an additional 25 facilities over the next five years to keep pace with enrolment growth.

It remains to be seen if the province can stay on track with what many have said is an ambitious timeline for constructing the schools. Drysdale expects contracts

will be signed for all facilities — 28 new schools and two modernizations — by next summer and he hopes to open even the largest buildings, including a 1,500-student high school in Calgary’s northeast, by fall 2016. But the city’s recently unveiled Robert Thirsk High School took nearly four years to build after a contract was signed with Clark Builders in October 2009. “I guess that’s the reason we like going to P3s, because once you sign the contract they’re always on time and on budget,” Drysdale said, noting such contracts put the responsibility on the private partner to stick to the planned construction schedule.

Alberta’s deputy premier and post-secondary minister says he’s asked institution presidents whether they will consider tailoring their enrolment plans to address a labour crunch “compounded” by June’s flood. Thomas Lukaszuk said there’s no guarantee of additional funding for the sector hit hardest in last year’s budget but added that he will begin compiling financial plans for 2014 “very shortly.” “It’s almost two independent worlds making independent decisions, but they have to inform each other,” he said of the labour market and postsecondary sector. But the minister refrained from indicating whether schools able to train professionals currently in high demand would receive kinder financial treatment come budget time. Metro reported earlier this year that trades-friendly institutions like Calgary’s SAIT and Edmonton’s NAIT took smaller overall cuts to provincial funding in the last budget due to increases in apprenticeship technical training grants. Lukaszuk said the provincial labour market was already struggling to keep pace in key areas like truck operating, engineering and the hospitality industry, and those areas have been put under even greater strain by thousands of rebuild and restoration projects related to damage caused by the flood. Jeanette Sutherland, manager of workforce and productivity with Calgary Economic Development, said there has been a greater focus on skilled trades work in residential buildings since the flood, but only slight project delays are being reported so far.

Saddledome renos should be complete within a week Major repairs. First eight rows were under water in late June Calgary Flames president Ken King is “very confident” repairs to the flood-damaged Scotiabank Saddledome will be complete in time for the team’s first exhibition game next Saturday. “We are very close,” he said Thursday as work crews continued to plug away at the massive project. “Everything is in place to go.” After the arena was inundated with floodwaters in late June, several major concerts set for July had to be postponed and it had been uncertain whether the facility would be ready for the NHL season. But King said there is now little doubt of that, and the Flames will almost certainly be hitting the ice on Sept. 14 to

take on the Edmonton Oilers in pre-season action. The Saddledome is actually set to host two concerts by the Eagles on Sept. 11 and 12, said director of building operations Robert Blanchard, a feat he described as hard to imagine in the immediate aftermath of the flood. “Seventy-five days ago, we would have been standing under nine feet of water,” he said while offering media a tour at ice level. “In that time, it’s probably been about 650,000 man hours put into the building to get it back to where it is.” In addition to brand new equipment on the entire lower level — everything from electrical panels to kitchen stoves — the arena now has all-new glass and more than 2,500 brand-new seats. “We sourced them out of Mexico City to get them here on time and to get the ones that would fit,” Blanchard said of

Replace, not upgrade

Robert Blanchard, director of building operations, said the task was to replace — not upgrade — damaged equipment, as the Flames don’t expect to be in the Saddledome for much longer. • “If we did major upgrades on this level, we’re still left with a concourse that doesn’t function properly for us,” he said. “All sorts of other areas in the building are just 30 years old and obsolete and just don’t work for us.”

Calgary Flames fans greeted the team’s hiring of Brian Burke as president of hockey operations Thursday with a mixture of excitement, concern and hope that he might help turn around the struggling franchise. “I’m excited about it,” said Jefri Hiebert. “Burke is a really smart guy; he knows his hockey. I think he got a run out of town unnecessarily in Toronto. He built a solid team from what was

basically a mess.” Chris Ferneyhough, however, wasn’t so sure about Burke’s previous stint as general manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs. “I found his act started to wear thin after a while. Seemed more concerned with maintaining his ‘code’ rather than improving,” said Ferneyhough, who is originally from Ontario and still counts himself as a Leafs fan, but also follows the

and “strong beliefs” are just what the Flames need right now. “The franchise seemed totally lost these last few seasons,” he said.

Real or replica? Police kept busy with fake firearms Wasted resources. Negligent owners could face bylaw fines Jeremy nolais

jeremy.nolais@metronews.ca

Only two of these six firearms are real, according to Calgary police. Can you spot the difference? If you guessed that No. 11 and 12 were real, you’re right. Jeremy Nolais/metro

It doesn’t take much to mistake a paintball or pellet gun for the real thing, say Calgary police, who’ve been kept busy responding to calls in recent months where an airpowered firearm was thought to pose real danger. Insp. Mike Tillotson said the most recent incident saw more than a dozen tactical and K-9 officers dispatched to Nose Creek amid reports someone was armed with a military-style assault rifle. It took nearly 90 minutes for officers on the ground

and aboard the HAWCS helicopter overhead to determine the firearm actually fired paintballs, not bullets. “The last thing we would want to see is somebody accidentally or inadvertently putting themselves into a dangerous situation,” he said. Police displayed 21 firearms Thursday, some real and some not, to get across the point that even up close many replicas can fool the average eye. In some cases, officers have found firearms that have been spray-painted to look more realistic or vice versa, Tillotson said. He also warned it’s an offence to fire any air-powered rifle or to transport such weapons with an ammunition round in the chamber unless within the area of a designated shooting range. To fire such weapons out-

side of Calgary city limits, the shooter must obtain permission from a landowner. Tillotson said Calgary police do go through weaponsfamiliarization training, but added that replica firearms are becoming increasingly realistic. “I can tell you, anecdotally, that from the spring to the fall we’ll have at least several pellet-gun- and BB-gun-related calls per week,” he said. Tillotson said the officers responding to firearms calls that ultimately prove to be fake are potentially being diverted away from other more serious situations.

Scanning a comfort to owners of dead pets Identification. ‘You always hope that you can contact more owners, just to let them know where their animal ended up’ Jeremy nolais

jeremy.nolais@metronews.ca

Animal services technician Karen Birk scans a dog for identification in 2011. While this pooch was alive and well, Birk would use a similar method to attempt to identify dead animals brought by the city’s shelter. Metro file

Scanning animals found dead on Calgary streets for identification has led to a degree of closure for dozens of pet owners, according to city animal services. In August 2011, the city launched a program to check the bodies of animals gathered by road crews for implanted chips or identification tattoos before transporting them to a landfill or having them cremated. Over two years, 186 owners have been notified of their animals’ deaths and given the

option of claiming the body or leaving it in the hands of the city, says Tara Lowes, manager of administration and shelter operations. “You always hope that you can contact more owners, just to let them know where their animal ended up,” she said. The rate of identification, which is about 30 per cent given that city crews have collected 594 dead animals since the program was launched, is much higher than it was previously, when animal services would rely solely on collars for identification, Lowes said. She noted that cats — the most common type of dead animal found by city crews — are not required to wear a collar. The Calgary Humane Society sees frantic owners come by the organization’s shelter every day looking for their lost pets, spokesperson Christy Thompson says. Even in the worst-case scenarios, she said it’s important to

A 33-year-old mother who left her five-year-old son alone in a car while she shopped at an Edmonton toy store has been charged with child abandonment. A passerby noticed the boy and stayed with the vehicle as the boy revved the car’s engine and hung his body out of the vehicle. “At times the child was viewed sitting on the edge of the door, kind of Dukes of Hazzard-style, half in and out of the vehicle,” Sgt. Gary Willits said. Police believe the child was at first secured in the back seat, but was able to unbuckle himself and move to the front seat. The incident happened on Aug. 15. When police responded to the call, the vehicle was no longer at the reported location. The citizen who witnessed the incident took photos of the vehicle and licence plate, and officers were able to track down the parent and investigate the claims.

As a result of the investigation, which included video from inside the toy store of the mom shopping for 30 minutes, the 33-yearold mother was charged with abandoning a child. She was also charged under the Child Youth Family Enhancement Act with willfully causing a child to be in need of intervention. Annalise Klingbeil/metro

provide some consolation. “It’s another reason why we’re really pushing for people to use the permanent (pet) ID, whatever that looks like for them,” Thompson said. Still, even with the improved identification program, which is considered to be the first of its kind in Canada, Lowes conceded the circumstances surrounding many animal deaths remain a mystery. “We’ve had some pretty bizarre cases of animals coming where dogs have actually been in their dog beds, but they’re on the road,” she said.

At this point, the Oct. 21 election might seem as though it’s years away. But the truth is the weeks leading up to the big day will go by faster than you can imagine, and before you know it, you’ll be walking into your polling station deciding who will be running Calgary for the next four years. In the hours, days and weeks leading up to the municipal election, tweets, Facebook statuses, websites, commercials and newspaper editorials will fill your head with suggestions on who you should vote for and why. But, as someone who writes one of those columns, let me tell you this: Trust no one. Instead of waiting for columnists, editorial boards and commercials to tell you who would make the best mayor,

But remember, trust no one

Ask the candidates what the city is doing to prepare for the next flood city councillor and schoolboard trustee, why not make the decision yourself? While Mayor Nenshi seems like a guaranteed win, why not use the opportunity to ask him and anyone running for city council some tough questions. (My suggestion would be to ask them on Twitter, where your query is less likely to be vetted by their staff.) Ask the candidates what the city is doing to prepare for the next flood. Ask them about legalizing secondary suites and what is being done about the next leg of the C-Train. Ask them questions on issues you are concerned about. While you’re asking the tough questions, why not ask yourself why people like Preston Manning and the Manning Centre seem so eager to involve themselves in our municipal

election? They are offering training to candidates and releasing survey results to the media. Their website declares that they are “building Canada’s conservative movement.” So when a candidate comes knocking on your door, ask them about their relationship with the Manning Centre. Do we really want our city council to be divided between conservatives and liberals? Or, should councillors make decisions based on each individual issue? Oh, and don’t forget about that controversial video that featured a prominent homebuilding industry executive, painstakingly dissecting each ward, looking for “businessfriendly” councillors.

While political leanings in Canadian media don’t seem as blatant as they are in the U.S., it doesn’t mean that we should be lazy and not do our own research. I recently read an interview with Kevin Taylor about his campaign in Ward 7. I wholeheartedly disagreed with Taylor’s stance on the $52-million surplus. But, instead of trusting the typically right-leaning paper’s interview, I reached out to Taylor to confirm that he really did want to return the money to taxpayers. He confirmed what he said in the interview, which means he likely won’t receive my vote in October. But that’s my decision. Which is really the best part of an election season — it often feels like the only time we actually have a say, so why not say something?

Artist hopes this plastic has a fantastic message BYOB. Calgarians encouraged to visit gallery and bring their own plastic bags to donate to local artist’s exhibit GLENN KELLY

Rosemary Brown stands amongst tangled branches, peeking out from behind as she drapes plastic over them like some sort of rare and elusive bird assembling a nest. The branches and plastic take on a unique form, all part of the local Calgary artist’s newest creation, Plastic Fantastic, which sits on display at the Epcor Center’s Ledge Gallery. For Brown, Plastic Fantastic has been a process that has taken more than two years, when she was first inspired by the idea of plastic and how it can take on beautiful forms yet be so detrimental to the environment. “It would be hard for us to think of a world without plastic. It’s in everything. It’s light, it’s versatile, it’s easily moulded, it’s cheaper than other things. That’s why it proliferates in our society,” says Brown. “But there are serious consequences for us, and for our

environment.” The art installation is ongoing and continually growing until Oct. 5, when Brown plans to have filled the entire Ledge Gallery, creating a relative forest of structures. The art installation has an informative message about the current state of recycling and

the environment, Brown says, one that teaches the public about what needs to happen in order for positive change. “For me, I think of all of the environmental education that’s happened, the three Rs, and yet in the States and in Canada, a very small percentage of plastic bags are actually recycled. That

would be the start: how to encourage people to do more of that and to think further and more deeply about plastic and what we can do about consumption,” she said. Calgarians are encouraged to stop by the gallery and bring their own plastic bags to donate to the exhibit.

Keys Please. Volunteer allegedly threatened with gun The volunteer organization whose driver had a gun allegedly shoved in her face overnight said those confrontations are rare. Calgary police have since apprehended two suspects in connection with an incident near Kensington Road and 10 Street NW around 1 a.m. Thursday morning involving a volunteer for the drinking and driving prevention company Keys Please. The incident involved one of the suspects in the back seat of a Keys Please vehicle allegedly pulling a gun on a volunteer driver when she refused to turn up the radio. Keys Please general manager, Ginger Greenwood, admitted that although rare, the confrontation has left both the driver and other members at the company shaken. “It is shocking. I mean strange things do happen, but I’m sure we’re all wracking our brains to see if there’s anything else we can do to make it safer for our drivers,” said Greenwood. “We have never had an incident like this in 17 years,” she said. Duty Inspector Jim Stinson confirmed that both suspects were apprehended shortly after the incident and are now in police custody. A shotgun was recovered from the scene. Glenn Kelly for Metro

Time to get the popcorn popping. The Calgary International Film Festival announced its lineup on Thursday, with more than 200 films premiering from 36 countries. The festival will showcase local features, as well as bring together several collaborations between Canadian and foreign filmmakers. “This year we’re seeing a 10:53 AM theme of really strong films

from Alberta, both in the shorts and the features. I think we’re also seeing the global nature of the films,” said Steve Shroeder, executive director of the CIFF. “We have films ranging from the most serious art-house movies and subtitled foreign films all the way through to what I like to call big dumb fun, just crazy belly laughs, action, ridiculous good times. We love that spectrum and

everything in between,” The CIFF will also feature a new Audience Choice Award, which will allow attendees to vote for their favourite feature, a festival first. Schroeder says the new award will help gather attention from the international film community and provide a way for audiences to engage with the filmmakers. “The audience wants that engagement.

Transit. Council poised to expand low-income pass eligibility — again It appears low-income transit passes will be made available to thousands more Calgarians next year, pending approval from city council Monday. “There’s a bunch of people that this will make a significant difference for,” Ald. Brian Pincott said Thursday. A recommendation to further expand eligibility for the discounted monthly passes was passed by a committee this week with no debate and is now set for approval at the full meeting of council on Sept. 9. Pincott, who championed the idea last year, has been in Newfoundland all week for a Federation of Canadian Municipalities conference, but said he was pleased to see the move supported at committee. “I’m absolutely thrilled that it sailed through that way,” he said. If approved at council, the eligibility threshold will

be increased to equal the low-income cutoff (LICO), a measure calculated by Statistics Canada, which is estimated to include 94,300 Calgarians. The threshold currently stands at 87.5 per cent of LICO, up from 75 per cent in 2011. Low-income passes cost $44 per month versus $94 for a regular pass, and Bonnie Pacaud of the group Fair Fares said the difference is substantial for many people. “It’s significant in terms of buying food, paying bills,” she said. “That’s a lot of money when you only have a limited amount of money.” Robson Fletcher/metro

The LRT ground to a halt Thursday as an armed man travelling with a 22-calibre rifle brought a heavy police response to the system. Police first received reports of the man at about 4:30 p.m. from the Belgravia-McKernan station and, working with Edmonton Transit, stopped the train at the Churchill LRT station to search the train. While that search was underway, police say the man was arrested nearby at 95 Street and 103 Avenue. Police Insp. Chad Tawfik said the weapon was not loaded,

a bolt was removed and the man had no ammunition on him, but there was no way for other passengers to know. “It was in plain view. It wasn’t in a bag or anything that was concealing it and that generated a lot of attention,” he said. Tawfik said officers are still determining possible charges, but he stressed firearms have to be transported responsibly. “If you are going to be transporting firearms, it has to be done according to the law.” Ryan Tumilty/Metro in Edmonton

Edmonton cops cleared in man’s jail death Edmonton police have been cleared in the death of a 34year old man who died while in a police cell last year. The man died after a prolonged struggle with police that included being hit with a Taser. The medical examiner ruled the man’s death had been caused by excited

delirium associated with presumed illicit drug use. “These officers were lawfully attempting to restrain a male who was described as possessing super-human strength. I have determined the officers did not cause the death of this affected person in their attempts to control him and therefore, no charges will flow as a result,” Cliff Purvis, ASIRT’s executive director, said in a media release.

Woman who wrote on Taliban killed Home invasion. Indian author had previously escaped Afghanistan and execution in 1995 An Indian woman whose memoir about life under Taliban rule was turned into a Bollywood movie was shot dead Thursday by suspected members of the Islamist militia, officials said. The killing of Sushmita Banerjee was the latest in a string of attacks on prominent women in Afghanistan, adding to fears that women’s rights — in a country where many are barely allowed outside the house — will face

setbacks after U.S.-led foreign forces fully withdraw in 2014. The militants arrived before dawn at Banerjee’s residence in eastern Paktika province, which lies in Afghanistan’s east — a region where the Taliban are especially influential. Her husband, Jaanbaz Khan, answered the door, only to be quickly bound and blindfolded, provincial police chief Gen. Dawlat Khan Zadran said. The militants then dragged Banerjee outside and shot her at least 15 times, Zadran said. Banerjee — who was from Kolkata, India — wrote A Kabuliwala’s Bengali Wife. It later became the basis for the 2003

film Escape from Taliban. The book described how she met Jaanbaz in India and agreed to marry him despite her parents’ disapproval and the fact that he was Muslim while she was Hindu. According to summaries of the book online, Banerjee moved to Afghanistan as Jaanbaz’s second wife, only to find that life would become unbearable with the Taliban increasing their hold over the country. In an interview posted on India’s Rediff website, Banerjee described trying to flee Afghanistan multiple times, and how she was ordered executed as a result. She made it back to Kolkata in 1995.

Mounties have placed a 68-kilogram pig carcass, equipped with a radio tracking device and a temperature gauge, in the river near North Battleford. Police will head out on the water next week to track

the carcass’s movement toward Nipawin. They hope their longplanned experiment will turn up potential patterns of where bodies go when they drift downstream. Const. Tyler Hadland says several people have presumably gone missing in the river and their bodies have not been found. The Canadian Press

Obama presses world leaders to support strike against Syria G20 summit. The U.S. president runs into opposition to military action from Russia, China and the European Union U.S. President Barack Obama pressed fellow world leaders on Thursday to support a U.S.-led strike on Syria, but he ran into opposition from Russia, China and even the EU — which condemned the recent chemical weapons attack in Bashar Assad’s country but declared it too soon for military action. “The use of chemical weapons in Syria is not only a tragedy but also a violation of international law that must be addressed,” Obama insisted during a meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at the G20 summit, where he mostly made his case behind the scenes. China’s G20 delegation spokesman, Qin Gang, was

among those who countered, saying: “War isn’t the fundamental way to solve problems in Syria.” The prospect of military action against Syria overshadowed the global growth agenda at the two-day summit, which opened Thursday in the Russian city of St. Petersburg. Leaders did, however, discuss the crisis during a dinner hosted by Russian President Vladimir Putin, one of the Syrian government’s strongest supporters. While Obama has long called for the ouster of Assad, the chemical weapons attack near Damascus two weeks ago pushed the U.S. to the brink of military action for the first time during Syria’s civil war. The U.S. position on Syria has increased tensions with Putin, one of Assad’s most important backers. Putin has blocked efforts at the UN to take action and has questioned intelligence reports U.S. officials say link the chemical weapon deployment to the Syrian leader. the associated press

Chemical warfare?

U.K.: New evidence gas used

Russian President Vladimir Putin shakes hands with U.S. President Barack Obama during the G20 summit in St. Petersburg, Russia, on Thursday. The threat of missiles over the Mediterranean is weighing on world leaders on the shores of the Baltic this week, and eclipsing economic battles that usually dominate when the G20 economies meet. Dmitry Lovetsky/the associated press

U.K. scientists have found new evidence that poison gas was used last month outside the Syrian capital of Damascus, U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron said Thursday. In an interview with the BBC, Cameron said that the evidence being examined “further shows the use of chemical weapons in that Damascus suburb.” The BBC’s account of the interview did not make clear whether the tests had determined who was responsible for the chemical strike — a critical question facing world leaders as they gather in Russia to debate a response to the Aug. 21 attacks. the associated press

PM Harper takes firm stand on Syria, debt-reduction

U.S. to scale back stimulus gradually: Russian official

Prime Minister Stephen Harper is taking a firm position on two controversial issues at this year’s G20 summit, with little hope of achieving a wider consensus with his fellow leaders on either front. With Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird and Finance Minister Jim Flaherty in tow to hammer home his messages, Harper made it clear that a military strike is necessary against Syria, and that countries should be setting hard targets for reducing their debts, as Canada is now doing.

Russia’s finance minister says U.S. President Barack Obama assured G20 leaders that the U.S. will be scaling back its stimulus policy. The prospect of the U.S. Federal Reserve scaling back its policy of quantitative easing has dampened hopes of a global recovery and has already caused weakness in emerging-market currencies. Anton Siluanov told reporters that in response to other world leaders’ concerns, Obama said that the U.S. will be withdrawing stimulus “gradually.”

Tax offensive sets sights on Google, Amazon

Human-rights activists stage individual protests at G20

Russia’s finance minister says that G20 leaders have agreed on a plan to take on multinational companies who tuck away their profits in offshore jurisdictions. Speaking after Thursday’s first G20 session, Anton Siluanov said that leaders are indignant over the policies of cross-border giants like Google and Amazon, who “make money in one country” but pay lower taxes elsewhere. The G20 leaders agreed on a plan that would prevent these companies from using loopholes and tax havens, Siluanov said.

Spaced out along St. Petersburg’s main thoroughfare, about a dozen activists staged protests to attract the attention of leaders of the world’s biggest economies to human-rights violations in Russia. Activist Iosiph Skakovsky said they held individual protests because mass protests are often banned or disrupted by police. Activist Natalya Tsymbalova was protesting “discrimination of sexual minorities, falsification of elections, pressure on NGOs, violation of the freedom of public assembly.”

Puppy love used to treat soldiers’ PTSD At your service. Fundraiser aims to expand access to companion dogs for soldiers with PTSD Warrant Officer Jocelyn (Butch) Boucher had one of those stressful, unenviable jobs that always seem to fall to senior non-commissioned officers in the military. An air force intelligence and research analyst, it was Boucher’s responsibility in the fall of 2008 to anticipate for the commander of HMCS Ville de Quebec what Somali pirates were up to in the Gulf of Aden. It was a mission with lethal potential, one that the frigate and her crew of some 225 had not anticipated — nor had they established a network of intelligence contacts necessary to operate in those perilous waters, where freighters were being hijacked almost daily. There were moments, Boucher says, when you never knew what was going to happen next. Boucher was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress following the deployment, and now awaits word on whether a medical discharge will end his military career

“Since Spirit has joined us, joined my family, she is an ice-breaker, the one that allows me to open up and talk about these events that have happened in my life.” Warrant Officer Jocelyn Boucher, on how his dog Spirit has helped with PTSD recovery

of more than three decades. He’s one of the thousands of veterans whose “heart and soul have not come home” from the conflicts the country sent them to, said Philip Ralph, a Canadian Forces Baptist minister and member of Wounded Warriors Canada. The charity kicked off a planned 2014 cycling fundraiser Thursday with a pledge to put the proceeds toward expanding programs that help veterans access service dogs for therapy. A growing body of research, mostly in the United States, has shown how soldiers with post-traumatic stress bond with the dogs, and ease their anxiety. Boucher, who has his own dog Spirit, says acceptance of the therapy needs to be more widespread. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Pawrty politics. Mayor Stubbs not feline so great after attack The honorary mayor of a tiny Alaska town is noticeably absent this week, when he should be hanging out at the general store or sipping his water-catnip concoctions from a wine glass at the pub next door. Instead, Stubbs the cat is sedated and under veterinary care after he was badly injured in a vicious dog attack in Talkeetna, a quirky community of 900 that elected him in a write-in campaign 15 years ago. Talkeetna has no human mayor, so you could say 16-year-old Stubbs is the reigning leader. “He’s everybody’s guy,” said Stubbs’ owner, Lauri Stec, who manages Nagley’s General Store, where the orangey-beige cat lives and mingles with lo-

‘Humans are above dogs’ The mayor of the Romanian capital says there will be a referendum on whether thousands of stray dogs should be euthanized after a four-year-old boy was killed by a stray this week. Sorin Oprescu said Thursday that the date for the ref-

bers will undergo sensitivity training after a video surfaced of them leading hundreds of first-year students in the chant, which spells out the word “young” with lines like, “U is for underage, N is for no consent.” Perry said the chant has been taught to frosh for years. He said he and the other leaders just didn’t think about the message. “It’s more about the rhyme and the chant behind it,” he said. “As odd as it sounds, we didn’t see the message.... We now realize that it’s extremely serious and we don’t want it to happen any more.” Perry has resigned as chair of the Students Nova Scotia group, but will not give up the office of SMUSA president. “It’s definitely the biggest mistake I’ve made throughout my university career and Shellie Zimmerman pleaded guilty last week to a misdemeanour for lying during a bail hearing after her husband’s arrest for the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin last year. A day after the plea, she told ABC’s Good Morning America she wasn’t sure she wanted to stay married. ABC first reported the divorce

Saint Mary’s president Dr. Colin Dodds called the chant “completely inexcusable.” “My colleagues and I were shocked by this incident and are deeply sorry that our students, and now the community at large, were exposed to disturbing sexually charged material,” he said in a statement. “I am taking measures to ensure it does not happen in the future.” Thursday. After George Zimmerman was released on bail, she said the couple spent nights in a 20-foot trailer in the woods. Her husband wasn’t in court with her last week as she was sentenced to a year’s probation and 100 hours of community service. the associated press

Crime

Abuse charges against Mennonites justified: FS boss The CEO of Manitoba’s general family services authority says social workers were justified in removing dozens of children from an oldorder Mennonite community and he doesn’t know when — or if — they will all be able to return home. Jay Rodgers says the case is unique in Canada, but he has no doubt the children were seized from their parents for good reason. Up to 40 children from the orthodox community were taken early this year after 13 people from the community were charged with child abuse. “I don’t have any concerns that the action that was taken was not justified,” Rodgers said Thursday, a day after parents of 18 of the children appeared in court to try to regain custody. “As this process has unfolded, there is lots that we have to learn about their culture. That’s true. But it was not a cultural misunderstanding, I don’t believe, that led to the actions.” In July, RCMP said they had arrested 13 people on assault charges that included allegations that the children were struck with cattle prods, whips and leather straps. The alleged abuse is said to have taken place between June 2011 and January of this year. THE CANADIAN PRESS

I take my coffee transparent ... Grounds for discussion. Open-expense movement hits the Hill Sen. Doug Black says he’s already getting questions about his $179.99 office coffee-maker. But the freshly appointed, elected Conservative senator from Alberta says public reaction to his online posting of itemized, taxpayer-funded expenses has been “overwhelmingly” positive — and “a ton of work.” The Senate expense scandal that continues to rock the Conservative government has

prompted a common understanding on Parliament Hill that the reporting of MP and senator expenses requires much greater transparency, timeliness and vigour. Amid much partisan jockeying over reforms, it is two Conservative senators who are leading the way by example. Bob Runciman, a former Ontario cabinet minister, announced this week he’ll join trailblazer Black in the upper chamber by posting itemized expenses online every three months. Runciman says he’s trying to “help Doug out in encouraging others to follow the lead.”

Green dreams? Pot bill Human-trafficking case. in Puerto Rico up for Accused woman said she discussion in legislature was bringing in caregiver Legislators in Puerto Rico are preparing to debate a bill that would allow people to use marijuana for medicinal purposes in this conservative U.S. territory, officials said Thursday. The measure would create a system to legally produce the substance and allow state health officials to regulate it, said Rep. Jose Baez, one of the bill’s two authors. It calls for a classification of medical conditions and requirements that would allow patients to smoke marijuana

in their homes. Conditions would range from cancer to glaucoma to anxiety. The measure also would allow the island’s health department to award special permits to patients to grow their own pot if they couldn’t afford to buy it at an authorized clinic or if they lived too far from the clinics. “Treating this strictly as something that should be punished has clearly not worked,” said Rep. Carlos Vargas, the bill’s other author. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Indonesia. Protesters target Miss World pageant with chants, banners Indonesian Muslim hardliners resumed protests Thursday against the Miss World pageant, as organizers insisted that the event would go on as scheduled this weekend on the resort island of Bali. In Jakarta, the capital, about 1,000 members of the Islamic group Hizbut Tahrir Indonesia rallied outside the building housing the local organizer of the contest.

Chanting “Allah akbar,” or “God is great,” the protesters, mostly women, waved banners reading “Reject Miss World.” Protests were also held in the Sumatran cities of Medan and Pekanbaru, and in Makassar in Sulawesi. Protesters gathered at local council buildings and called on the government to revoke the permit for the contest. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

“It’s a fabrication by the National Intelligence Service,” Lee Seok-ki shouted at a police station in Suwon, a city just south of Seoul, before being driven to a detention facility. South Korean lawmakers voted Wednesday to lift Lee’s legislative immunity against arrest. It was the legislature’s first passage of such a motion over rebellion charges. Lee, a first-time lawmaker from the small United Progressive Party, has long been hounded by claims he supports North Korea. He is accused by the spy agency of holding a secret meeting in May of about 130 party members and discussing strikes on crucial South Korean infrastructure targets should war break out between the Koreas. He allegedly believed that high tensions between the two countries this past spring could lead to war. Lee has denied the allegations, accusing the spy

Court decision. Terror suspect’s unrelated crimes pardon revoked The lawyer for a man charged in an alleged plot to attack a VIA Rail train says it’s “absurd” for the parole board to revoke a pardon it once granted to the man for unrelated crimes when the new charges have not been proven in court.

Egypt’s interior minister escapes bomb attack Assassination attempt. It’s the first attack on a senior government official since a coup toppled the country’s Islamist president Egypt’s interior minister narrowly escaped an assassination attempt Thursday when a suspected car bomb tore through his convoy, wounding 22 people and leaving a major Cairo boulevard strewn with debris — the first such attack since the military ousted the Islamist president. Thursday’s bombing against Mohammed Ibrahim was a substantial escalation in the confrontation between the new leadership and Islamists. It also hiked fears of a militant campaign of revenge for the coup and raised the likelihood of an even tougher hand by authorities against protest-

Blaze caused by hunter: Forest Service Yosemite National Park. Giant wildfire has so far cost $81 million to fight A gigantic wildfire in and around Yosemite National Park was caused by an illegal fire set by a hunter, the U.S. Forest Service said Thursday.

The agency said there is no indication the hunter was involved with illegal marijuana cultivation, which a local fire chief had speculated as the possible cause of the blaze. No arrests have been made, and the hunter’s name was being withheld pending further investigation, according to the Forest Service. The only legal hunt-

ing allowed at the time the fire started Aug. 17 was archery for bear and deer. A Forest Service statement gave no details on how the illegal fire in a remote canyon of the Stanislaus National Forest had escaped the hunter’s control. Because of high fire danger across the region, the Forest Service had banned fires outside of developed

camping areas more than a week before the fire started. The Rim Fire has burned nearly 961 square kilometres — one of the largest wildfires in California history and has cost $81 million to fight. In some cases, people who have started wildfires in California have been sued to pay for the costs and damages. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Crikey, it’s a croc! Reptiles seized from Ottawa-area home A Gatineau, Que., man may be facing bylaw charges after 14 reptiles, including several exotic varieties, were discovered by Gatineau police as they executed a search warrant at his home Thursday, following complaints from neighbours. “Spectacled caimans do get big enough to cause very, very serious injuries,” said Matthew Korhonen, curator of Little Ray’s Reptile Zoo in Ottawa’s south end, which has taken in the haul of animals, which included a spectacled caiman crocodile, which can grow to eight feet long and weigh in at 70 to 100 pounds. Police searched the home Thursday after animal-control

officers were denied entry by a man who was later seen leaving the home with a large snake, police said. Once inside, they found the spectacled caiman, three boa constrictors, a 91-inch-long Burmese python, five non-venomous snakes roaming the apartment, an iguana, a bearded dragon and a snapping turtle. The man potentially faces charges under local bylaws for possession of non-venomous reptiles that could pose a danger, possession of exotic reptiles not contained in a terrarium and possession of a pit bull without a licence. The dog has been handed over to the SPCA. GRAHAM LANKTREE/metro in ottawa

Kids smoking e-ciggies: Survey Children — like adults — are increasingly trying electronic cigarettes, according to the first large national study to gauge use by middle and high-school students. About two per cent of the students said they’d used an e-cigarette in the previous month, according to a survey done last year. That was up from one per cent in 2011. More kids still smoke

on Back-to-School Essentials

traditional cigarettes than the new electronic ones, and it’s not clear how dangerous e-cigarettes are. Some e-cigarette makers said Thursday that they support regulations to keep them out of kids’ hands. But some are wary of steps that might affect adult buyers. Future regulations shouldn’t “stifle what may be the most significant harm reduction opportunity that has ever been made available to smokers,” Murray Kessler, chief executive of Lorillard Inc., owner of Blu Ecigs, said in a statement. the associated press

Privacy. Google seeks to dismiss Gmail lawsuit

metronews.ca WEEKEND, September 6-8, 2013

Yahoo unveils first major logo revamp Branding. Whimsical purple emblem hasn’t been changed for most of firm’s 18-year history

In this photo illustration, the Google logo is reflected in the eye of a girl. The tech giant’s practice of scanning Gmail messages is the subject of a lawsuit in the U.S. Photo Illustration: Chris Jackson/Getty Images File

Google’s attorneys say their long-running practice of electronically scanning the contents of people’s Gmail accounts to help sell ads is legal, and are asking a U.S. federal judge to dismiss a lawsuit that seeks to stop the practice. In court records filed in advance of a federal hearing Thursday in San Jose, Calif., Google argues that “all users of email must necessarily expect that their emails will be subject to automated processing.”

The class-action lawsuit, filed in May, says Google “unlawfully opens up, reads, and acquires the content of people’s private email messages” in violation of California’s privacy laws and federal wiretapping statutes. The lawsuit notes that the company even scans messages sent to any of the 425 million active Gmail users from nonGmail users who never agreed to the company’s terms. The Associated Press

Yahoo has adopted a new logo for the first time since shortly after the Internet company’s founding 18 years ago. The redesigned look is part of a makeover that Yahoo Inc. has been undergoing since the Sunnyvale, Calif., company hired Google executive Marissa Mayer to become Yahoo’s CEO 14 months ago. Mayer has already spruced up Yahoo’s front page, email and Flickr photo-sharing service, as well as engineered a series of acquisitions aimed at attracting more traffic on mobile devices. The shopping spree has been highlighted by Yahoo’s $1.1-billion US purchase of Tumblr, an Internet blogging service where the company rolled out its new

logo. “We wanted a logo that stayed true to our roots (whimsical, purple, with an exclamation point) yet embraced the evolution of our products,” a statement on the website says. The revision is the first time that Yahoo has made a significant change to its logo since a few tweaks shortly after cofounders Jerry Yang and David Filo incorporated the company in 1995.

has attracted a lot of attention, but so far it hasn’t provided a significant lift to the company’s revenue. Yahoo depends on web advertising to make most of its money, an area where the company’s growth has been anemic while more marketing dollars flow to rivals such as Google and Facebook. Yahoo’s stock has climbed by nearly 80 per cent, but most of that gain has been driven by its 24 per cent stake in China’s Alibaba Holdings Group. Investors prize Alibaba because it has emerged as one of the fastest growing companies on the Internet. The Associated Press

A new report suggests that a growing number of older workers are taking on part-time jobs, which in turn is pushing up the unemployment rate among teenaged students. The CIBC World Markets report says the unemployment rate for students aged 15 to 18 who are seeking part-time work has climbed to a record high of more than 20 per cent in Canada. The report also notes that employment among those in the 15-18 age group has fallen by 22 per cent since 2007, even though the overall population in that age group has declined by only four per cent.

As a matter of fact, they’ve worked their way up from youth to franchise a store, and now they are paying for my education, because they know and respect teachers and education. They also respect hard work and dedication to their job. So before Mr. Mazerolle belittles cashiers maybe he should realize, that last time I checked, cashiers are people, too. Hilary Pryce, Toronto

• Richard: ••••• • Mark: ••••• Riddick is heavy on the filters and crazy creatures, but light on entertainment. CONTRIBUTED

Reel Guys

RICHARD CROUSE AND MARK BRESLIN

Just plain Riddickulous Riddick. Tawdry graphics, cheesy dialogue and gratuitous nudity doesn’t even make this film campy fun Richard: Mark, Riddick should have been titled Riddickulous. With its cheap effects, cheesy dialogue, gratuitous nudity and testosterone-laced characters, it might provide midnight movie-style nostalgia for anyone who grew up on direct-to-video sci-fi flicks in the 1980s. Anyone else might want to go back to the original movie in this series, Pitch Black, and

enjoy a movie that actually kinda makes sense. This is the rare movie that is actually better when the star isn’t in it. What did you think? Mark: The movie has a look, I have to admit, and it kept me connected to the film for the first 40 minutes. The director has never met a filter he didn’t like. But Vin Diesel didn’t bother me as much as the movie itself. It’s so grim and ugly it’s hard to watch. And after the first 40, kind of boring, which is unforgivable. RC: I agree with you about the stark look of the film. There’s no eye candy, although some of the creatures are pretty cool, but

I’m on the opposite page regarding Diesel’s solo act for the first 40 minutes. I didn’t think this movie worked at all until he gave up the Survivorman act and the bounty hunters showed up. Then, for my money, it became a typical bad movie instead of a surreally bad film. MB: And didn’t that part of the film feel to you like a video game right down to the tawdry graphics? And if it’s silly you’re looking for, I’m glad to see that women in outer space are still wearing eyeliner. RC: You want silly? How about fending off a vicious dog-creature by starting an impromptu game of fetch?

SCENE

In Vin Diesel’s fourth outing as the mercenary-turnedenforcer, he has been doublecrossed and left for dead. “I don’t know how many times I’ve been crossed off the list,” he mumbles in a voice-over, “but this ain’t nothing new.” He spends his days battling aliens until not one, but two teams of bounty hunters land on the planet. The first team, lead by Santana (Jordi Mollà) wants Riddick dead so they can collect the ransom. The other team, headed by Boss Johns (Matt Nable) wants him alive for questioning. As the bounty hunters bang heads, Riddick plans a wild scheme of vengeance and escape from this desolate planet.

Or maybe using words like “jamoke” in the far distant future. If the movie had embraced its silliness instead of taking itself so seriously in all the wrong ways, I might have enjoyed it more! MB: I might have enjoyed it more if it were a completely different movie. I like Diesel in his Fast and Furious franchise, so maybe this flick needed some car races to soup it up. As I watched it, I gave it some grudging admiration for the purity of its grim vision. Then there’s an eleventh hour act of gratuitous kindness that makes no sense at all and ruins what little the film has going for it.

Drinking Buddies Director. Joe Swanberg Stars. Olivia Wilde, Jake Johnson

••• • • Mumblecore stalwart Joe Swanberg trades up actorwise in Drinking Buddies, which sees the lesser lights of his previous movies replaced by big-wattage actors like Olivia Wilde, Anna Kendrick and Jake Johnson. This story of two couples who disband and tentatively shift romantic partnerships following a tense weekend at the cottage has more wit and shape than Swanberg’s previous films, but it’s also surprisingly conventional: a crossover move from a director who has made his name by staying safely tucked within a low-budget niche. adam nayman

When women find Passion watch them.

Wild ride. Thriller has Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace getting a little bit crazy

Rachel McAdams’ character feels a lot like a grown-up version of her character from Mean Girls. Had you seen that film already? Of course. Oh, I knew Rachel could play it. I’d seen her play it before. Playing a dark, manipulative lady is a hell of a lot of fun, and she had a lot of fun doing it.

Ned Ehrbar

Metro World News in Hollywood

Brian De Palma’s latest pulpy thriller, Passion, pits Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace against each other as ad agency colleagues who are out for blood after McAdams takes credit for Rapace’s idea for an ad. There’s a lot of craziness going on in the film, including more than a little intimacy between its female leads — and none of that was De Palma’s idea, he insists. Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace both get the chance to really hit the crazy button in this. That’s right. I mean, it’s like with Rachel — that phone call. When she gets the phone call about the guy who can-

cels the date, she heaved the phone (across the room). I forget which take that was. Wow! Unbelievable. And then she picks up the phone and figures out whatever she’s going to do next. She calls up an old lover and, “You want to come over?”

There is a lot of, shall we say, fluid female sexuality in this film. I just let the girls go with the scene and just sat back to see what would happen. The way that Dani (played by Karoline Herfurth) offered herself to Isabelle (played by Rapace) —

“Kiss me!” — and then starts to undress her! All the girls, all their intimate stuff, was all improvised. They just play it. They make it as real as possible. If something’s not working, we try something else, but they were all fantastic, and it was just fascinating to

You use a split-screen during a pivotal scene in the film. How have the reactions been to that? It seems to work. Everybody seems to talk about it a lot. It’s not like I just have a paint box of things I want to stick in my movies. I look at the scene, and I think, “What’s the best way to shoot this?” Also, I’ve never done a murder where you have a split-screen and you have these two fantastically beautiful women on each side, and then suddenly a knife slashes somebody’s throat and you see somebody with a mask splattered with blood. I’d never done it before.

Cabaret. Michelle Williams to take on iconic Liza Minnelli role Michelle Williams will make her Broadway debut next year in a role best known by Liza Minnelli — fishnet-and-bowler -hat-wearing chanteuse Sally Bowles in Cabaret. The Roundabout Theatre Company confirmed Wednesday that the former Dawson’s Creek and Brokeback Mountain star will join Alan Cumming in the revival. Williams takes over after Emma Stone withdrew due to scheduling conflicts. Previews will begin March 21 with an opening set for April 24 at the Roundabout Studio 54 theatre on Broadway, the last home of the show, which ran for more than 2,000 performances from 1998 to 2004. It won the Tony Award in 1998 for best musical revival. Cumming, who will be reprising his 1998 turn as Master of Ceremonies, recently ended a one-man Macbeth. Also reprising their parts from the 1998 production: Sam Mendes and Rob Marshall, who will direct. Marshall will also choreograph this time as well.

Mumblecore methods work well with booze Ned Ehrbar

For some actors, director Joe Swanberg’s mostly improvised method can be daunting, but others — like his Drinking Buddies cast of Olivia Wilde, Ron Livingston, Anna Kendrick and Jake Johnson — find it exhilarating. Swanberg gives us some insight into his writing and editing process and his stringent “no yelling” policy for himself on set.

The plot

Set in 1931 Berlin, Cabaret centres on the world of the indulgent Kit Kat Klub as it becomes intertwined with the world outside, which gets more precarious on the brink of the Second World War. The songs by John Kander and Fred Ebb include Willkommen and Tomorrow Belongs to Me.

the associated press

How much of this was improvised and how much did you plot out? The plot was pretty heavily figured out before we shot anything. The size of the movie and the infrastructure involved meant that we had to schedule it, we had to lock down locations. We had to know what the story was going to be and even what the scenes were going to be in a vague way. Being my own editor allows me to be

a little more open as a director. Editing becomes a lot of the writing process. How do you go about pitching this sort of process to actors? It’s a very conversational pitch. I talk about where the themes came from, how I relate to the story, what I’m pulling from my own life and I feel like that’s a nice lead-in to discussing how their own stories can enter into the picture.

Free Flickr’s photo-taking app has gone professional with a significant update that adds 18 seebefore-you-shoot filters and adjustable effects plus a suite of editing tools for cropping, sharpening, balance and exposure.

Did you find some actors just didn’t quite go for that? Sure. I met a lot of great actors, people whose work I admire, who just either weren’t excited by the improv process or for one reason or another thematically this wasn’t a story they were interested in telling right now. I mean, there’s a lot of reasons why somebody would or wouldn’t want to do this movie, but I think people were all curious. Do you think being an actor helped with that conversation? A little bit, maybe. Hopefully it helps me as a director. I certainly feel like it makes me a better communicator and it makes me more empathetic to that experience.

All right, summer’s over, school’s back in session and the parade of brainless summer fare has come to an end. ‘Tis the season that films compete for your admiration. Well, at least some of them. matt prigge

Films to see as the leaves start to fall Metro World News in New York

Ender’s Game (Nov. 1) What: Orson Scott Card’s classic 1985 novel about kids (Asa Butterfield and Hailee Steinfeld) trained for military battle against aliens finally gets the big budget adaptation for which its author likely always pined. Why: The novel is one of scifi’s brainiest, and hey, there’s Harrison Ford presumably grumbling up a storm as one of the elders.

The Armstrong Lie is Alex Gibney’s second high profile doc in six months.

Why not: In case you haven’t heard, Card is a gigantic homophobe who called for revolution if gay marriage was ever implemented and now thinks people who hate him are being intolerant. But this isn’t the first — or gazillionth — time a legitimately awful human being has produced good art. Will get an Oscar for: Most talented dedicated homophobe.

contributed

The little films...

• How I Live. The everubiquitous Saoirse Ronan once again plays a young girl in duress, this time stuck on her lonesome in the countryside as a third world war breaks out.

Ben Kingsley in Ender’s Game. contributed

Dallas Buyers Club (Nov. 1)

at all, and his latest concerns time travelling: A young man (Domhnall Gleeson) tries to change his love life with magic and — whaddaya know? — gets Rachel McAdams.

What: Matthew McConaughey plays the real-life Ron Woodruff, a homophobe who in 1986 was diagnosed with HIV and started smuggling cheap, illegal drugs to stay alive. Why: McConaughey is evidently still on the Great Comeback Tour that began last year with Bernie, Magic Mike and Killer Joe and is continuing with Mud and The Wolf of Wall Street. Good. Why not: This could be selfimportant. But it sounds crazy enough that it might just work! Will get an Oscar for: Best Matthew McConaughey performance of 2013.

Why: The most annoying thing about Curtis is that, insufferable though his films regularly are, they tend to have various degrees of charm. Why not: He still made Love Actually. The Hunger Games comes out on Nov. 22. Contributed

About Time (Nov. 1) What: British rom-com artist Richard Curtis (Love Actually) long ago became a genre unto himself, but lately he’s been trying to wiggle his way out. Pirate Radio wasn’t romantic

Will get an Oscar for: Best attempt to shake up a desiccating career with a sci-fi gimmick. Thor: The Dark World (Nov. 8) What: Everyone’s favourite hammer-wielding Norse god who’s the source of fish-out-

of-water jokes (Chris Hemsworth) goes solo again. This time he battles totally different superpowerful beings. Why: The first was moderately amusing, though presumably this time our square-jawed brickhouse of a hero knows better than to request a horse at a pet shop. Why not: In other words, what’s left to show? Will get an Oscar for: Best use of a Hemsworth brother. The Wolf of Wall Street (Nov. 15) What: Martin Scorsese returns to keyed-up, gleefully amoral Goodfellas mode, only this time about even worse people: stockbrokers (played by Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill).

• The Armstrong Lie. You think Tyler Perry makes too many movies? This look at Lance Armstrong is Alex Gibney’s second high profile documentary in the

last six months, after the disappointing Julian Assange hit job WikiLeaks: We Steal Secrets. • Nebraska. Alexander Payne follows up The Descendants with this more simplified drama, shot in black-and-white and following a road trip taken by a man (Will Forte) and his grumbling father (Bruce Dern).

Why: If this isn’t ridiculously entertaining and hugely quotable, then there’s no god.

society with her archery skills while choosing which nice boy to be with.

Why not: There’s probably no god anyway. But seriously, there’s zero chance this isn’t a blast. Have we mentioned Matthew McConaughey, currently waist-deep in career repairmen mode, is in it?

Why: The books (or at least the first one) are some of the easiest reads in memory. And by easiest, we mean they’re stupid and poorly written without being distractingly so a la the works of Dan Brown.

Will get an Oscar for: Best movie ever.

Why not: The Battle Royale films (even the somewhat underrated sequel) do this better, and give you R-rated carnage to boot. But do they feature “futuristic” names like Haymitch Abernathy and Caesar Flickerman?

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (Nov. 22) What: Some girl with a weird name that rhymes with “cat piss” (Jennifer Lawrence) continues her adventures outsmarting a dystopian future

Book BLACK DIAMOND, AB on your calendar!

Will get an Oscar for: Best terrible names.

No, no, no, it doesn’t matter if dad’s a babe, it just needs to be set in the ’80s.

If I am going to watch a show about a dad, then at least make sure he looks like Chris Meloni

Family Ties was OK, but Robin Williams ruled the early ’80s on Mork and Mindy

Speaking of crazy, Leah Remini be damned, it’s all about Scientology and Kirstie Alley

Cheers was funny, but if there was a groundbreaking Thursday night show, it was Will and Grace

Who cares about saving the world? You just want to have fun like that crazy Aussie, Rebel Wilson

Sure those singles are having fun, but it’s time to settle down and get married

She’s practically spent the last five years of her life in front of the camera thanks to back-to-back-to-back reality shows Bethenny Ever After, Bethenny Getting Married and Real Housewives of New York City, not to mention The Apprentice: Martha Stewart several years before that. Her next TV venture is simply titled Bethenny, and although the daytime talk show puts the outspoken entrepreneur back in the spotlight, Frankel says she’s

intent on making sure the series is not about her. “This talk show is an evolution of a relationship between me and women that has started from the Apprentice to going through the struggles I had as a single woman on the Housewives and then doing my own show,” Frankel said during a promotional stop in Toronto in June. “It’s not that I do it for the sake of doing it and this show isn’t really about me. It’s about women and if there’s something that I’m going through that women are going through then we will all talk about it together. “This will be a different experience because it’s not just me living my life for everyone to see without them being able to talk about how it affects them and what they’re going through.” And there’s been plenty of talk over the way Frankel

has lived her life in recent months. The tabloid magnet has kept the headlines coming with supposed behind-thescenes drama on her new show, her divorce and custody battle with estranged husband Jason Hoppy and non-stop speculation over the nature of her relationship with billionaire Warren Lichtenstein. Rather than turn people off, the constant media scrutiny has cemented her fan base, suggests Frankel, arguing that people feel like they know who she is, and consider her a pal. “I’m fortunate that I’ve had a reality show where people have seen my life and have been in my home, so hopefully they trust me and they know that this is who I am on camera, off camera, this is just who I am.” Frankel previewed her chat show last year with a test run on Fox in the United

States and E! in Canada. Backed by Ellen DeGeneres, the series offered a light-hearted mix of celebrity interviews, fashion advice and frank girl talk. Frankel says she expects upcoming episodes to be guided simply by whatever women are talking about. “It’s kind of a deconstructed talk show. The structure probably won’t be the same every day and it probably won’t be exactly the same as last summer,” said the 42-year-old, adding that a lot of details had yet to be worked out. “A lot of people already started adopting a lot of the format that I did last summer on other shows and I’m a person that just kind of wants to keep it moving forward and have it be innovative so we’ll be whatever is uniquely true to me on that day.” Bethenny debuts Monday on CTV. the canadian press

The rest of the list includes hits from Florida Georgia Line, Justin Timberlake, Bruno Mars and Selena Gomez. Oscar nominee Anna Kendrick’s Pitch Perfect soundtrack hit, Cups, is ninth. Thicke’s Blurred Lines was also named Spotify’s song of the summer. The Associated Press

Peel off your clothes, it’s AlunaGeorge! Debut album. Aluna Francis gives Metro the lowdown on her romantic flops and an insight into her working relationship with George Reid

It’s been a whirlwind year for you two with all the excitement surrounding Body Music, but do you think you’ve lived up to the hype? Well, we knew we couldn’t play to the hype because the hype is its own thing, so the only thing we had to do was create the album we wanted to create and we did that.

Richard peckett

Is the girl-boy electropop format popular because it’s so accessible? Yeah, yeah I think so. It could be the birth of the home studio and I like the process of the production being intrinsic to the song writing process because I find sound and rhythm as a foundational aspect to a track are equal to the melody and the lyrics.

Metro World News

In a music industry rife with commercial mush, it can be to tough to forge an identity — but AlunaGeorge have done just that with their signature sound. It’s a harmonious union of George Reid’s catchy hooks and intros and Aluna Francis’s slinky, rasping lyricism. It’s seductive and distinctly London. The duo is right on tune with what’s pulsing out of the UK’s airwaves, along with young peers like Disclosure, MS MR, Jessie Ware and Charli XCX. The 24-year-olds are indeed the darlings of electropop and their twice-delayed debut album only dropped at the end of July. Metro chatted to Francis, the duo’s vocal half, about making music both in and for the bedroom.

certainly did have an attempt to do it but, hmm, my talents lie elsewhere. Your album is called Body Music. In an ideal world what should the guys and girls be wearing to dance to your beats? I think you should have a few layers on so that you can peel them off one at a time.

time going, “I really wish you hadn’t.”

Has anyone tried to serenade you in the past? What’s your cheesiest dating tale? Oh god, yeah, my first boyfriend (laughs). I’ve got like a vague recollection of standing there, like, “Aww,” cringingly trying to be positive and feel like it’s nice that someone has written you songs but at the same

Thanks for the tips. In the past, your working relationship has been termed a “musical fling.” Have you ever been tempted to make more than just music in the bedroom with George? I’ve never mixed business with pleasure. I think they’re

too completely and utterly incompatible experiences. I remember in one of my old bands, we got a new drummer and he drove me home and I don’t know what he said but it was obvious that he had the hots for me and I was like, “Mate, that is totally inappropriate and I’m afraid we can’t work together any more.”

OVER 50% SOLD

Why is it that the boys are usually parked up behind the technical equipment, while the girl takes the showcase vocals role? Boys and their toys, I guess. There’s still a kind of a different appeal to boys and girls from a social standpoint because that side of music has often been saturated by guys — and things don’t change that quickly. I don’t know a lot of girls who have picked up being able to produce music in their bedroom. I

Of ‘vintage blipster couture’ and sexuality Zebra Katz. Metro unmasks the Grace Jones-esque, gimp mask-wearing performer richard peckett

Metro World News in London

Zebra Katz is the man behind that menacingly intoxicating track Ima Read. Before his song made its way onto last year’s Rick Owens runway and into the charts, the 26-year-old was an underground New York hiphop artist. Now, the Brooklyn-born gay rapper’s cult following has gone global, with dronelike fans mimicking the slow

pulsing, voguing-perfect repetition of lyrics. He’s something of a phenomenon. Even Busta Rhymes got involved on Katz’s mixtape DRKLNG — and Ima Read has been remixed close to 100 times. The track’s evolving and so is the sound and style of Katz — real name Ojay Morgan — with one-of-a-kind stage performances and a penchant

for some pretty out-there ensembles. You have a theatrical, cabaret-esque stage presence. How would you describe your personal style? I call it “vintage blipster couture.” I get a lot of high-end stuff and one-of-a-kind pieces, which I mix with shades from the dollar store. Also, I’ve been into trading pieces

with people on tour. Your mother used to sew. Did she influence your love of fashion? Yes. I let her dress me for a really long time until I got to, like, high school. Did you customize clothes from an early age? At high school, I was selling customized, bedazzled bandanas and I would make crazy costumes for high school teams. I’d even cut jeans up and make them into bags because that was really big at the time. You quit your catering job the day that Rick Owens played Ima Read at his runway show. Is music paying the bills? Hmm, I’m getting there. I’m also working with Premier Model Management on collaborations and doing “flower events.” You’re one of only a few openly gay rappers. Does your sexuality influence your lyrics? Most people think that I’m sexually quite ambiguous, so I don’t think it’s an influence. How do you feel about being pigeonholed with the term “queer rap?” I think if people base their opinions on a title like

Zebra Katz gives the crowd the silent treatment. getty images

“queer rap,” listeners aren’t understanding what I’m about. I don’t think that music categorization should be based on sexual identity because it doesn’t help define the artist. What title do you prefer? I think Black Arts Movement or Renaissance would be better suited — and that’s not me being egotistical. You don a gimp mask on stage. Where did you pick it up? It was buried away in a vintage store in San Francisco. The mask’s become a ritual for my performance. I lost it twice and I left it in Moscow with a bunch of models who did some things to it.

Rizzle Kicks are out to shake you up Interview. The cheeky Brighton boys tell Metro they want to get you out and partying to their latest album, Roaring 20s Richard Peckett

Metro World News

On stage, Rizzle Kicks — Jordan Stephens and Harley Alexander-Sule — are like kids hopped up on far too many E numbers. They’re in your face — Stephens especially. He refers to himself as a “liability.” But it’s their party boy stage personas that produce the mischievous-looking duo’s infectious summer anthems. After all, who hasn’t got down to their hit track Down With The Trumpets? The 21-year-olds’ next album release, Roaring 20s — which was released on Sept. 2 — runs in a similar but ballsier vein, with catchy

You’ve got over a million followers on Twitter. Do you get any indecent proposals from groupies? Dude, some girls on Twitter say the dodgiest sh—, yeah — and they literally look like they’re about 14 or something.

What would you do if the label dropped you? That’s the one thing that I’m very comfortable with. I know that me and Harley are really talented individually. If I turn around tomorrow and release the second album and everyone’s like, “Sorry, mate, you’re over” and the label dropped us, I’ve got some other sh— I can do, man. I could pursue my love for directing, TV writing.

Do you reply? No, it’s as shocking as hell. Those things are scary. It’s an absolute minefield. Sometimes I find myself scared by the prospect of

In the song Lost Generation you say that you’re a slut, so how many girls have you slept with? That comment was not meant to be honed in on me — it’s about sexism. The punch line in that was actually, “But I’m a boy, it’s all good.” The only thing that we can conclude from that statement is that if a girl had slept with as many people as I’ve slept with, they may be considered a slut. Do you share everything, you and Harley? Yeah (laughs). … Are you asking if we share women? Noooo. Do you two ever fall out? What are your roles in the duo? No, it’s a very calm relationship. I spend 70 per cent of my working life trying to antagonize Harley on the basis that he doesn’t get wound up. He’s so tranquil and like, chilled. He doesn’t rise to me at all — that’s why we kind of work.

The origin: Star Wars like you’ve never seen it before The Star Wars. Before the wildly popular movie there was Lucas’ rough draft and now it’s coming to life in comic form A young, idealistic rebel from a desert planet seeks to fight an unjust, tyrannical emperor with a space station capable of destroying planets. Star Wars, the 1977 film? Not quite. Try The Star Wars, the 1974 rough draft by George Lucas that, ultimately, turned into the wildly popular and still culturally resonant film. Dark Horse Comics is bringing the original script to life as an eight-issue miniseries — with Lucas’ blessing — giving fans a different take on Darth Vader (no helmet), Luke Skywalker (he’s older and a general), Princess Leia,

Han Solo (he’s green), C-3PO and R2-D2 along with new ones like Anikinn Starkiller and his father, Kane. Series writer J.W. Rinzler, an executive editor at LucasBooks, called the series a “once in a lifetime project” and the chance to tell the first story in the Star Wars pantheon. “This is not something you could film,” Rinzler said of the original script and his adaptation of it. “Here’s a giant city and then here’s a giant vista filled with huge spacecraft. (Lucas) was doing his blue sky version of what he wanted to do. He knew this was not going to be filmable.” The story has similarities to Star Wars, but the differences throughout The Star Wars are plentiful and noticeable, Rinzler said, and readers will notice many of them as they explore each page, some big, some small.

Forever Evil. New DC Comic sees evil take hold and a surprise hero emerge There are always bad guys in comic books — rogues and evil geniuses out for world domination. In DC Comics’ slate of New 52 titles there’s about to be nothing but villains as the universe finds itself under assault and protected by an unlikely hero: Lex Luthor. Writer Geoff Johns said the opening pages of Forever Evil this week promise to upend readers of DC Entertainment’s comics as the crossover ripples throughout the publisher’s titles and turns “inside out,” the nature of DC Comics’ longstanding characters, both good and bad. “The Justice League is gone and the Crime Syndicate is here. You have all the villains in new roles, and the world has been really altered. The strongest team in the world isn’t what you’d expect — it’s a team of villains,” he said of the baddies from an alternate Earth. It’s also a chance for Luthor, who throughout DC’s long history has been cold, calculating and devious — everything dia-

bolical to Superman’s inherent good. In the upcoming series, and the crossovers, he takes on the role of hero. “Our tagline for the story is ‘Evil is relative.’ One of the most important characters is Lex Luthor, who decides someone has to stand up to these villains and stop them,” Johns said. “And he’s the one. He knew this day would come, he knew the people with powers flying around would need to be stopped and he’s the one that has to do it.”

King of global grapes LIQUID ASSETS

There are a lot of grapes in the wine world. They number in the thousands. While some are variations on a single varietal, the majority are standalone berries — many of which never see a vine outside of their particular geography. Some, though, are international superstars. Think chardonnay, sauvignon blanc and riesling on the white side, and pinot noir, merlot and cabernet sauvignon on the red side. Cabernet sauvignon is arguably king. An accommodating piece of fruit, it’s one of the few grapes that keeps its core taste profile intact when it travels. You’ll find its classic blackberry to black currant flavours and typically oak-influenced power whether you’re catching a cab in Bordeaux, France (where it originates) or Ontario’s Niagara Peninsula. Cabernet has had a love affair with California for decades. Famous for producing powerful, palatepounding wines in The Golden State, the recent Cali trend is toward plump, juicier versions. Trinchero Family Estates’ 2011 The Show Cabernet Sauvignon ($17.95 to $19.99) is about red berry expression and balanced tannins. Though great with beef, it’s a pleasing mouth full of wine without a real need for food. PRICES REFLECT THE RANGE ACROSS THE COUNTRY. SOME PRODUCTS MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE IN ALL PROVINCES.

An A+ for creativity School lunch. Skip the tired ham-and-cheese sandwich and roll up this Any-Way-YouWant-It ‘Sushi’ No, this isn’t real sushi. It is a whole-wheat tortilla filled with meat, then rolled up and sliced into maki-style sushi rounds. It’s fast, easy, delicious and healthy. If you like, add vegetables (leafy greens and grated carrots work particularly well). You can even accompany this with containers of honey mustard or barbecue sauce for dipping the “sushi.” Want to take this in a different direction? Substitute peanut butter for the cream cheese and a banana for the meats. Sprinkle in a few mini chocolate chips, then roll and slice.

1. Spread cream cheese evenly over one side of tortilla. Be sure to spread cream cheese all the way to the edge, as this helps seal the roll shut and keep it from unwrapping. 2. Arrange the meat (and any vegetables you want to add) in an even layer over the tortilla. Be sure to leave about 1 inch of cream cheese exposed along the edges. Ingredients • 1 to 2 tbsp cream cheese • 8-inch whole-wheat tortilla • 1 to 2 oz thinly sliced meat (salami, steak, cooked chicken or turkey, or deli meats, such as ham or prosciutto)

Pop-Up Beakerhead

Broadway across Canada

This event runs from Wednesday until Sunday Sept. 15 in the Suncor Energy Plaza (111 - 5th Ave. SW). Pop-Up Beakerhead seeks to merge the ideas of artists, architects and engineers in the city. There are five teams of designers and students who have five days to design and build pop-up pavilions that are capable of hosting future events and exhibitions. The event is anticipated to do well here based of the fact that Calgary has the most engineers per capita of all Canadian cities. In addition, Calgary’s art scene is really flourishing. There are bound to be some unique and innovative designs coming out of the competition. beakerhead.org.

War Horse comes to Calgary Tuesday. This is the incredible story of a horse named Joey who is sold to the cavalry and shipped overseas to help out with war efforts during The First World War, and the boy named Albert who can’t forget about Joey. The horse ends up serving for the cavalry on both sides. Albert is too young to enlist so he sets out on a courageous mission to find his horse and bring him home. The play will be at Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium, located at 1415 14 Ave. NW. For tickets: broadwayacrosscanada.ca.

‘Wonderful opportunity’

John Herdman to coach Canada’s women soccer team until 2020

THE CANADIAN PRESS

U.S. Open

Frustrated Murray loses to Wawrinka Andy Murray’s reign as defending U.S. Open champion ended Thursday in a surprising, frustration-filled 6-4, 6-3, 6-2 quarterfinal loss to ninth-seeded Stanislas Wawrinka. Third-seeded Murray won his first Grand Slam title at Flushing Meadows last year and his second at Wimbledon this July. But he was overmatched from the beginning on a blustery day in Arthur Ashe Stadium in New York. After making 15 unforced errors against only eight winners in the first set, Murray cracked his racket on the court, then mangled it after walking over to the sideline. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Behind the scenes. Fiery Brian Burke says he doesn’t intend to be in the spotlight in Calgary One of the NHL’s biggest personalities vows to work in the background for the Calgary Flames. Veteran hockey executive Brian Burke was named the team’s president of hockey operations, a position the Flames created for him in an effort to return to the playoffs after a fouryear absence. Burke will “assume overall responsibility of the sport side of the Calgary Flames.” General manager Jay Feaster will report to Burke, while Ken King remains president and CEO of the Calgary Sports and Entertainment Corporation. In addition to the Flames, the company encompasses the American Hockey League’s Abbotsford Heat, the Western Hockey League’s Calgary Hitmen, the Canadian Football League’s Calgary Stampeders and the National Lacrosse League’s Roughnecks.

Newly named Calgary Flames president of hockey operations Brian Burke speaks after being announced to the position at a news conference, as Flames president and CEO Ken King, left, and general manager Jay Feaster look on in Calgary on Thursday. JEFF MCINTOSH/THE CANADIAN PRESS

Burke’s description of himself on Twitter is “a dash of truculence.” He’s brutally honest and unfiltered, so reporters both love and loathe him depending on the day. “I don’t intend to be front and centre,” Burke said Thursday during a news conference at the Scotiabank Saddledome. “That would be a nice break after being front and centre and

getting into a lot of little scraps in the media. “I know people think I need to be driving the bus all the time. I’m actually a pretty good teammate. “The guy you should talk to every day should be the coach. The transactional guy, if you make a trade ... the guy that should explain it should be the guy that pulls the trigger on the trade and that’s Jay.” Flames owners aren’t normally present at team announcements, but chairman Murray Edwards and others in the ownership group sat in the front row of seats Thursday.

• Brian Burke was fired as president and general manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs in January. He had been working as a part-time scout with the Anaheim Ducks since February. • A dual citizen of the United States and Canada, Burke sits on the board of directors for Rugby Canada and is the director of player personnel for the American men’s hockey team at the 2014 Sochi Olympics.

The man who coached the Canadian women’s soccer team to a historic bronze medal at the London Olympics has made a long-term commitment to remain with the program. John Herdman said extending his contract with the Canadian Soccer Association through the 2020 Summer Games gives him the chance to build on what has already been accomplished. “It’s a wonderful opportunity to be able to lead a legacy,” he told a news conference.

Stamps could face amped-up Eskimos squad after GM rant CFL. Edmonton changes up O-line rotation after having its QB battered by Calgary defence It will be a thoroughly tickedoff Edmonton Eskimos offensive line that takes the field Friday for their CFL rematch with the Calgary Stampeders. While they were laughing and having fun at the end of the team’s walk-through Thursday, the linemen said afterwards they are an upset group — angry at their performance for the first 50 minutes of their 37-34 loss in Calgary and further annoyed by comments Monday from general manager Ed Hervey, who called out guard Simeon Rottier. “When he calls out one guy

like that, you have to respond,” Thaddeus Coleman said of Hervey’s comments. “He’s (Rottier) still your brother, he’s still here. But we have to move forward, everybody has to step up. Get a win all this stuff goes away.” Hervey’s declaration that Rottier would not play Friday, and he didn’t care if he played again this season, prompted several changes to the line. The 1-8 Eskimos will go with an offensive line with three imports, a rarity in the CFL. Tackles Coleman and Cliff Louis and guard Miles Mason are also all rookies. Head coach Kavis Reed said he can’t remember the Eskimos ever playing three imports on the line but said it’s possible because the team has had the flexibility most of the season. They played an im-

Sagan builds on Tour of Alberta lead

FIBA Americas

Canada coach Triano likes effort against Mexico Despite a 22-point victory on Thursday, Canadian men’s basketball coach Jay Triano was most impressed with his team’s defence when the game was on the line. Brady Heslip scored 21 points off the bench as Canada defeated Mexico 89-67 at the FIBA Americas Championship. The guard from Baylor University was 5-of-8 from three-point range as Canada improved to 3-1. Canada saw a 12-point lead cut to just 60-58 at the start of the fourth quarter after being outscored 27-20 in the third. “In the fourth quarter, when we started making shots, the thing that we were impressed with most was that we scored 29 points ... but they only had nine,� Triano said. “I thought our defensive effort in the fourth quarter was outstanding.�

May 22 - June 21 It will be so easy to say the wrong thing at the wrong time to the wrong person today. If you do open your mouth when you should have kept it closed, you should apologize quickly.

Cancer

Aug. 24 - Sept. 23 Plan every step carefully. You cannot afford sloppy thinking now, not if you are to move up in the world and become the mover and shaker you know you can be. Think and act like a professional.

DO NOT WRITE YOURSELF OFF

“Then the Lord turned to him and said, “Go with the strength you have, and rescue Israel from the Midianites. I am sending you!” “But Lord,” Gideon replied, “how can I rescue Israel? My clan is the weakest in the whole tribe of Manasseh, and I am the least in my entire family !” (Judges: 6:14-15). Gideon focused on his weakness rather than his potentials. Nevertheless, down play your weakness and magnify God given potentials in you.
