Drop-in centre seeks rezoning exception City planning. Kettle Friendship Society eyeing expansion with mixed-use building EMILY JACKSON

Nancy Keough, executive director at the Kettle Friendship Society, front, wants the city to grant an exception to its rezoning freeze during the Grandview-Woodland community-planning process. JENNIFER GAUTHIER/FOR METRO

Every day at lunch, people with mental illness are turned away from the Kettle Friendship Society’s drop-in centre on Commercial Drive because there aren’t enough seats. The Kettle is desperate for more space, but its plan to partner with developer Boffo to erect a mixed-use building on the Venables Street site has been “caught up in the crossfire” of a rezoning freeze during the Grandview-Woodland community-planning process, executive director Nancy Keough said Thursday. The society wants the city to make an exception and look at its application before the neighbourhood plan is complete, especially since city council is considering extending the planning timeframe in response to community backlash to proposed tower heights at Commercial and Broadway. “We can’t afford to wait another year or two just to apply,” Keough said, adding the proposal includes “des-

perately needed” social housing. More than 100 people have signed a petition supporting Kettle’s early application and the majority of the community approved the expansion at several meetings, Keough said. The Kettle has called the Drive its home since 1976 and helps 3,500 people annually. But the city will not consider making an exception for Kettle based on its current proposal, city planner Matt Shillito said Thursday. While the community supports Kettle and its services (the expansion would increase its space to 12,000 square feet from 7,500), the building’s proposed 15-storey height has caused “significant concerns,” Shillito said. To qualify for an exception, a project must have a majority of social or supported housing or “substantially advance” the city’s objectives, he said. With its proposed 30 social-housing units and about 150 market units, this building doesn’t meet the criteria. Plus, the city wants to plan for the neighbourhood as a whole instead of one-off projects, Shillito said. “As important as the Kettle is, we have to be consistent.” City council is expected to decide whether to extend the community plan, and hear Kettle’s arguments for fast tracking, on Sept. 25.

Police say it’s time to truly focus on distracted driving Month-long blitz. Campaign brings more tickets, education and a push for stronger laws LUKE BROCKI

vancouver@metronews.ca

Vancouver police Staff Sgt. Howard Chow swerved across several lanes of traffic Thursday morning, ran over a skateboarder, smashed into a dump truck, then jumped the curb and crashed into his own house as onlookers laughed at his dismal performance in the distracted-driving simulator. It was a moment of levity in a press conference with a solemn message: Police and ICBC are losing their threeyear battle against distracted drivers in British Columbia. Laws punishing the use of cellphones behind the wheel have been in place since 2010, but deaths caused by distracted drivers continue to mount even as the number of violation tickets — each worth

$167 and three penalty points — issued has doubled to 4,000 per month. “We hope for increased sanctions. We want to get tougher,” said Victoria police chief Jamie Graham, chair of the traffic-safety committee of the B.C. Association of Chiefs of Police, as he kicked off a month-long campaign. “Drivers continue to flaunt the law and engage in this kind of behaviour,” he said. “We have told our officers ... you can write as many tickets as you want.” Graham said tougher ticketing blitzes would be one part of a three-pronged approach this September that will also include education and discussions with the B.C. government to fortify existing legislation with car seizures and jail time for offenders. John Dickinson, director of road safety at ICBC, said the company’s data suggests drivers are 23 times more likely to crash while texting and that the practice kills roughly 93 people in the province every year.

Park board swears it’s not about the money The OneCard, a symbol of the dispute between the park board and six rogue centres. CONTRIBUTED

The park board is once again saying money isn’t the driving force behind the plan to centralize community-centre operations after reports suggested that anticipation of an audit prompted the entire overhaul. According to minutes from a November 2012 meeting between community-centre association presidents, the as-

sociations were under the impression the park board wanted to control finances throughout the system before an expected audit on government spending. The minutes indicate the park board wanted to do this by quickly negotiating a new joint-operating agreement. But the park board was not expecting an audit, according

to a statement sent Thursday in response. It had, however, informed associations that the provincial auditor general had just been appointed to review practices in municipalities. The park board maintains its motivation for a new operating agreement lies in access for all citizens, equity among centres and operational sus-

tainability and accountability, according to the statement attributed to general manager Malcolm Bromley. Yet allegations of a “cash grab” have been rampant throughout the negotiation process, which is dragging on for all but six centres that chose instead to sue the park board. EMILY JACKSON/METRO

Should the feds fund research on how bitumen behaves at sea? Debate continues. Prof says government funding research that benefits companies is nothing new

A timeline of greased wheels

The federal government has a long history of spending public money to benefit the private sector. • The National Research Council (NRC) and Industry Canada have been funding aerospace research since the Second World War that primarily benefits one Canadian company, Bombardier.

The debate continued to rage on Thursday about whether the federal government should spend millions of public dollars on measures Green Party leaders charge are “greasing the wheels” for Enbridge’s proposed Northern Gateway pipeline.

PNE Prize Home winner announced

1 dead, 4 injured in 3-vehicle crash

Lightning and thunder couldn’t stop 49-year-old Dean Cockerill of Gibsons from winning the 2013 PNE prize home on Thursday afternoon. The stormy weather pushed the lottery’s draw back by a few minutes, but ultimately Cockerill’s name was called on live television. This year’s grand prize is a 3,000-square-foot home in the B.C. Interior ski resort of Sun Peaks. Celebrity designer and reality TV star Jillian Harris designed the home, which is valued at $1.2 million.

A 78-year-old woman was killed and four others were injured in a three-vehicle crash in Richmond on Wednesday afternoon. A Dodge Caravan was travelling east on Blundell Road at No. 5 Road when it collided with a Toyota Corolla. Those two vehicles then crashed into a Mercedes, the lone driver of which escaped without injury. The 52-yearold Corolla driver is in critical but stable condition, but her elderly back-seat passenger did not survive. Three others were taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Architects wanted to envision new gallery Vancouver Art Gallery. New building planned to be 300,000 square feet, twice the size of the current facility: Director The Vancouver Art Gallery is officially looking for architects to help transform a downtown parking lot into the cultural institution’s new home. The gallery launched an open request for qualifications on Thursday to choose the designers of the new centre to be built on a 1.8-acre site at Cambie and Georgia streets. Vancouver city council in April authorized staff to negotiate a memorandum of understanding with the gallery association for a 99-year lease on a city-owned plot of land, after years of complaints from the

gallery that its existing building at Robson Square is so small and crowded the majority of its permanent collection had to go on tour or be hidden away in storage. The new building is planned to be 300,000 square feet, twice the size of the current one, and would include an auditorium and dedicated classroom and studio space, gallery director Kathleen Bartels said on Thursday. Interested architects must contact the gallery by Oct. 4. According to April’s City of Vancouver staff report, the gallery needs to raise $150 million from the federal and provincial governments by 2015 as a condition of the lease. Bartels declined to comment on the fundraising efforts to date, but said she expects private donors to step up once the winning design architects are announced in the first quarter of 2014.

Lawyer Tony Paisana, left, guides his client Mumtaz Ladha into an elevator to go back into court at B.C. Supreme Court in Vancouver on Sept. 4. Darryl Dyck/the canadian press

Accused told immigration she needed a caregiver Human-trafficking trial. Mumtaz Ladha said she suffered from vertigo, osteo-arthritis A British Columbia woman accused of human trafficking told immigration officials she was bringing her Tanzanian caregiver to Canada because she needed her help during a twomonth visit, the woman’s trial heard Thursday.

No choice but to destroy bear family: Officers Conservation officers had no other choice but to destroy a mother bear and her cubs in B.C.’s Okanagan, said the officer in charge of the district. Officers were called Tuesday afternoon to investigate

said she suffered from vertigo and osteo-arthritis, and needed to bring her longtime employee. The application submitted to the Canadian embassy in Dar es-Salaam said the single, 23-year-old mother of one would be staying with her and would be supported by her for the duration of the visit. The first application was denied, noting there was no proof of funds provided by either the woman or Ladha. Upon request, the woman also submitted a Canadian bank statement from Ladha showing a balance in excess of a complaint that the bears were harassing a person’s livestock, said Barb Leslie, inspector in charge of the Okanagan for the Conservation Officer Service. When they arrived to the area in the District of Coldstream they found the animals treed, but when the trio came down, the mother began acting aggressively, said conservation officer Sgt. Josh Lockwod.

$549,000. A visitor’s visa was issued allowing the woman, who cannot be named due to a court publication ban, to remain in Canada for up to six months after her arrival. On June 3, 2009, the woman fled Ladha’s home in the wellheeled British Properties neighbourhood of West Vancouver for a women’s shelter. Ladha is accused of luring the 22-year-old woman to Canada with the promise of a job in a hair salon, only to force her to work around the clock as a maid in her $4-million West Vancouver mansion. THE CANADIAN PRESS

“The sow bear came right back and approached the officer. At that time she was dispatched.” Leslie said tranquilizing the cubs wasn’t a safe option for either the officers or the public, with a school nearby. “It’s unfortunate that this had be to done. These bears had been in the area since they came out of hibernation in May,” she said. THE CANADIAN PRESS

80 students handed sensitivity training for pro-rape chant Halifax. Chant has been taught to firstyears at Saint Mary’s University for years RUTH DAVENPORT Metro in Halifax

The president of the Saint Mary’s University Student Association says he knew about and participated in a chant glorifying the rape of underage girls — but will not step down. “We want to be some serious advocates about sexual assault and we want to turn this around and educate more students,” said Jared Perry during a news conference in Halifax Thursday. Eighty student leaders and three SMUSA executive mem-

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 anymore.” 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 probably my life,” he said. “I feel that there’s opportunity here to make some changes and I really do want to turn this around.” Saint Mary’s president Dr. Colin Dodds called the chant “completely inexcusable.” “I am taking measures to ensure it does not happen in the future,” he said in a statement.

Obama presses world leaders to support a strike on Syria G20 summit. U.S. president runs into opposition to proposed 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

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

Please email resumes to: infinitealadrianlam@live.com

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.

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 cancels 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?�

just fascinating to watch them.

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

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.

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.

– BRuce DeMARA, TOROnTO STAR

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.

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.

Just not doing it isn’t easy sometimes, but it would have saved a world of confusion and grief in Fontaine’s glossy Australian soap opera. Obvious trouble ensues when a woman and her best friend embark on affairs with each other’s sons. The film’s highly sensual and steamy but a dark foreboding hangs in place. Unfortunate oneliners arise because of the delicate subject matter, but on the whole it’s an intriguing, smart and organic story of four people driven by human forces. B:10” anne brodie

Just what is going on with Lamar Odom? The Internet was abuzz on Thursday with the news that troubled Kardashian man piece Lamar Odom had checked himself into rehab in order to save his marriage to Kourtney Kardashian.

King of global grapes LIQUID ASSETS

LIFE

Peter Rockwell @therealwineguy liquidassets@eastlink.ca

There are a lot of grapes in the wine world. 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 fruit, it’s one of the few grapes that keeps its core taste profile when it travels. You’ll find its blackberry to black currant flavours and typically oakinfluenced power whether you’re catching a cab in Bordeaux, France 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. 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.

Jensen eager to find a way back to The Show Young Stars Classic. Canucks’ 2011 firstround pick looks to impress in Penticton CAM TUCKER

cam.tucker@metronews.ca

You can’t blame Nicklas Jensen for being a little anxious as the summer days ticked away and the Young Stars Classic loomed closer. A first-round pick of the Vancouver Canucks in 2011, Jensen had what is known as a cup of coffee in the National Hockey League last season, playing in two games before his re-assignment back to Chicago of the American Hockey League. Not so much a cup of coffee as it was a couple sips. He comes to Penticton for the Young Stars tournament wanting more than that. “You’ve been working out all summer for this, so the last two weeks, especially, I’ve been restless, walking around just wanting to start,” said Jensen earlier this week. Jensen, 20, was in the lineup when the Canucks prospects took on the San Jose Sharks prospects Thursday at the South Okanagan Events Centre. He’s one of the veterans on

the Vancouver squad, given his brief experience in the NHL. “He probably knows that it’s getting close to his time where he can get a legitimate shot to make the team,” said Travis Green, head coach of the Utica Comets, the Canucks’ new AHL affiliate.

His foray into professional hockey yielded good results early on, when he scored six goals in eight games combined between the regular season and playoffs with the Chicago Wolves in 2012. Last season provided the steepest learning curve. His call-up to the Canucks

taught him just how fast the NHL game is. “They all know what to do before they get the puck,” said Jensen. “It’s not necessarily all skating and speed, it’s the mental game, too. They’re just so quick in their decisions.”

The man who coached the Canadian women’s soccer team to an Olympic bronze medal, 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 been accomplished. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Aries

March 21 - April 20 You need to get your work-rest balance sorted out. Most likely you have overdone it in recent weeks and now need to crash out for a while. Next time, try not to go to such extremes.

Taurus

April 21 - May 21 Creative and artistic plans are under good stars but you may not be able to do all the things you were hoping to ­­— at least not yet. You’ll know when the time is right to act.

Gemini

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

June 22 - July 23 According to the planets there is someone out there who is trying to make you look bad. Why? Because they are jealous, that’s why. In a way, you should take it as a compliment. But watch your back as well.

Leo

July 24 - Aug. 23 Expect a certain amount of criticism today, most likely from people who do not agree with your spending plans. Perhaps they have a point but they won’t change your ways by going on and on about it.

Virgo

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.

Oct. 24 - Nov. 22 Before you commit yourself to a new plan, you must work out how much it is going to cost in time, effort and money. You may need help from family or friends. Ask and you will receive.

Sagittarius

Nov. 23 - Dec. 21 You need to make a decision concerning your status and with Jupiter, your ruler, about to be touched by the Sun you can make it with confidence. Whatever it is you desire, the universe will give it to you.

Capricorn

Dec. 22 - Jan. 20 Make sure you know all the facts about a situation, especially if it could cost you money if it goes wrong. Once you have signed your name, there will be no going back.

Aquarius

Jan. 21 - Feb. 19 You may have been super confident yesterday, when the moon was new. But like the moon, your moods can change rapidly and you will want to keep it low key today.
