hockey history in the flesh Fred Sasakamoose, the first Canadian aboriginal NHL player, sits in the Vancouver Giants dressing room at Pacific Coliseum on Thursday. Sasakamoose was on hand as the Giants unveiled a tribute jersey for the Alkali Lake Braves, a First Nations hockey club from the ’30s. The tribute is linked to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission events being held at the PNE this weekend. Story, page 32. JENNIFER GAUTHIER/FOR METRO

A man shooting up in the back doorway of an alley with dirty water. A First Nations elder found dead in her rocking chair with a needle in her arm. Countless people overdosing and dying alone in dilapidated single-room-occupancy hotels. That was what addiction looked like in the Downtown Eastside before Insite, North America’s first legal supervised drug-injection site, opened its doors, said Mark Townsend of the Portland Hotel Society, which helps operate the site. But 10 years later, despite continuous opposition from the federal Conservative gov-

ernment, the picture is much brighter. “We brought people inside. To me that’s the really great thing,” Townsend said Thursday as Insite readies to celebrate the 10th anniversary of its first supervised injection on Saturday. Not a single death has occurred during more than two million visits under Insite’s watchful nurses and counsellors, all because a group of allies from the community, the city and the province decided “not to treat addicts like animals,” Townsend said. The attitude toward the site has dramatically changed since it opened, he said. Just this week, police officers broadcasted their support by recommending drug users go to Insite to prevent deaths. And the statistics prove Insite has successfully reduced

harm over the past decade: The rate of HIV-AIDS has dropped in the neighbourhood and people who use Insite are more likely to enrol in detox programs. Despite such research supporting Insite, Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s government led a charge against the site with its “tough on crime” agenda. Yet attempts to close Insite were shut down by the B.C. Supreme Court, the B.C. Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court of Canada. Other municipalities, including Toronto, are looking into getting their own supervised injection sites. And there’s still an uphill battle with Ottawa when it comes to funding treatment and prevention, Townsend said. The Rainier Hotel, for instance, needs funding to keep operating beds for vulnerable women, he added. EMILY JACKSON/METRO

Municipalities aim for a ‘GE Free’ B.C. Keep it away from us. Local government representatives vote to ask the province to ban genetically engineered plants and animals EMILY JACKSON

Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts NICK WELLS/FOR METRO

Organic-food lovers scored a win at the expense of massive agriculture corporations — and perhaps B.C. farmers

— at the Union of B.C. Municipalities conference on Thursday. Local government representatives voted to ask the province to ban genetically engineered plants and animals from being imported, exported, grown or raised in B.C. They also want the province to craft legislation declaring B.C. “GE Free,” a stance that’s already been adopted by the European Union. A Fuji apple farmer from the Okanagan threw his support behind the ban. It’s hard to export tree fruit if they’ve

been exposed to genetically modified material, he said, especially since more and more countries want to ban the material. A Richmond cattle rancher also supported the ban, stating it’s harder to sell his alfalfa-fed cattle to processors in Alberta if the plants are genetically engineered. But the decision was far from unanimous. Municipalities simply don’t have the knowledge to make such a decision without consulting farmers, a representative from Squamish said. A Vancouver Island chick-


Surrey will re-examine whether to install crosswalks near Princess Margaret high school, following the tragic death of a teen on Wednesday, says the city’s mayor. Amarpreet Sivia, 16, was struck and killed by a motorcycle while crossing 128th street and 69A Avenue on Wednesday at about 11:30 a.m. Two friends were also struck and were taken to hospital. “We have complaints from the community ... seeing kids running across that street and I think we need to engage in conversation around safety,” said Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts, in Vancouver on Thursday. “We will do whatever it is that we can do to ensure that it is safe as possible.” The intersection is listed in a 2011 report sent to Surrey city council as a “dangerous intersection”. Two other girls, both 17, were also struck in the accident, with one suffering minor injuries and the other listed in serious but stable condition as of Thursday. NICK WELLS/FOR METRO

en producer said it simply isn’t possible to feed the world’s people without applying science to food. Others proposed better labeling of food instead of an outright ban, which they suggested would hurt trade and the farmers. A North Okanagan representative noted that GE material is used for insulin for diabetics, and suggested the ban could harm their treatment. Follow Emily Jackson on Twitter @theemilyjackson

The prosecutor in the Laura Szendrei murder case says the offender’s courtroom apology must be taken with a grain of salt. During her closing submissions in Surrey Provincial Court Thursday, Wendy Stephen said that the Delta teen’s killer used all the right words, but his actions belie the remorse he was attempting to convey a day earlier. “Remorse can’t be accepted at face value,” said Stephen, who said the issue is one Justice Robin Baird must “grapple with.”

Before his arrest, Stephen said, the killer was only concerned about himself. When confronted by an undercover police officer about the crime, instead of expressing remorse or empathy for Szendrei, he said, “Oh my god, I thought I was done with this, I thought it had gone away.” The killer behaved normally for months after the crime, expressing how “awesome” his birthday party was just six days after the murder. He took deliberate steps to destroy evidence, from bleaching the pipe he had beat Szendrei over the head with and hiding it at his father’s business, to taking the clothes he wore that day to Mexico while on vacation and disposing of them. “One must look at this carefully,” the prosecutor said. Stephen argued that the 20-year-old offender — who cannot be named because he was a 17-year-old young offender during the Sept. 25, 2010, murder in Delta’s Mackie Park — only began to express remorse after “the jig was up.”

He pleaded guilty to seconddegree murder only after a lengthy preliminary inquiry convinced him he would be convicted of first-degree murder, she said. The murder was the culmination of a spike of escalating assaults by the offender that year. He admitted to sexually assaulting three women in Burns Bog, starting off with groping and ending with him attacking the third woman from behind, before Sept. 25. On Wednesday, the killer took the stand to explain his “evil and destructive choices.” “It was so wrong, and I’m sorry for what I did,” he said. “I never intended to kill somebody. I was so depressed and feeling so alone at the time. However, in no way should I have resorted to something as terrible as attempting to commit rape.” The Crown wants Justice Baird to sentence the offender as an adult, which would bring with it a life sentence in prison with no chance of parole for seven years.

Tentative deal heads off looming strike in B.C. schools

Don’t like your city council? You may be stuck with them for another year after the 2014 elections. In a narrow vote, Union of B.C. Municipalities decided Thursday to ask the province to extend the time between civic elections to four years from three years. The idea is to save taxpayers money and to avoid overlap with provincial elections, which resulted in absentee councillors as they ran for seats in Victoria and a general lack of legislative direction. But not everyone is impressed by the notion of longer terms, especially in rural communities. Many rural representatives pointed out that they’re paid a tiny stipend for their work compared to urban politicians, who advocated for longer terms.

Looming job action by 33,000 unionized public school support staff in B.C. has been averted. The B.C. Public School Employers’ Association and CUPE B.C., which represents 27,000 of the affected workers, say a tentative two-year contract has been reached. It contains a total 3.5 per cent wage increase over the life of the deal, with a one per cent boost retroactive to July 1, a 2.5 per cent increase on Feb. 1, 2014, and a final hike of half a per cent next May. The agreement expires June 30, 2014. Both sides must still ratify the tentative pact, with voting dates to be announced, but CUPE negotiators say the terms will be recommended to the CUPE B.C. K-12 Presidents’ Council for endorsement.

UBCM. Vancouver gets nod to change campaignspending rules Vancouver finally got a tool to help quell accusations that its city council is in the pocket of rich developers. The Union of B.C. Municipalities voted Thursday to allow Vancouver to create its own municipal campaign-finance rules, something the city has been trying to do for a decade amid skyrocketing campaign spending. Political parties spent an unprecedented $5.2 million in 2011, including a single donation of $960,000 by a developer to the NPA, but the province wouldn’t let Vancouver change its rules without the support of the UBCM. “Citizens have become high-

ly critical and cynical about our elections — they feel that our elections are being bought,” Green party Coun. Adriane Carr said before imploring other delegates to support the Vancouver-centric motion. (She was elected with the smallest amount of cash.) The only person who spoke against the motion was NPA Coun. George Affleck. While it’s unclear what the new rules will look like as “extremely robust” consultation is necessary, they will involve spending limits for individuals and parties and contribution limits, said Vision Vancouver Coun. Andrea Reimer. Emily Jackson/Metro

Outdoor adventurer Garry Last credits his satellite phone with saving his life after he broke his leg just two days into a month-long solo expedition in remote northern B.C. earlier this month. Courtesy

An outdoor adventurer who broke his leg during a monthlong solo hike in northern B.C. two weeks ago says the trip would have been his last if it hadn’t been for a satellite phone he brought along to keep school kids up to date on his trek. Garry Last, 58, who now lives at the foot of the Rocky Mountains just south of Hinton, Alta., was crossing a creek just two days into a monthlong trek across B.C.’s Spatisizi Wilderness when the bridge snapped, sending him hurtling toward the water and rocks below. “My knee landed on a boulder, and that’s when it broke,” recalled the veteran explorer, just out of surgery at an Edmonton hospital Monday.

“As soon as I hit it, I knew my knee was toast because — combined with the pain — I heard this horrible crack.” Alone with nearly 70 pounds of gear on his back, a broken leg and just his dog Jock to keep him company, Last quickly pulled out his satellite phone to call for help — but had to crawl some 50 feet to a clearing where he could get reception. Within two hours, a helicopter flew in to take him out of the bush. “A fellow went missing in the same area about five years ago, and they never found him.... It’s very lucky I had the phone,” said Last. Amazingly, Last, who’s done thousands of hiking and ski trips into the mountains and completed six solo Arctic expeditions over a 30-year career of exploring, isn’t letting the experience slow him down. He told Metro just hours after surgery that he’s already planning his next trip: An expedition into the McKenzie Mountains next summer. “I’m going to go hiking with my crutches while I recover,” he laughed.

Apology. Coca-Cola cancels promotion that produced ‘retard’ cap

‘Racially offensive’. Ottawa football team to drop Redskins name, logo

Coca-Cola issued a written apology Thursday to the Alberta family that found a vitamin water cap bearing the words “you retard” as part of a promotion the company has now cancelled. “This word should not have been included due to the English connotations and we have taken action,” David Thomson, vice-president of still beverages for Coca-Cola Canada, wrote in a Sept. 19 letter to Doug Loates. “This includes cancelling the promotion, stopping production of bottles with these caps and destroying any remaining caps within our inventory.” The nationwide promotion saw a random English word followed by a random French word written on the inside of bottle caps. “Retard” had made the list of appropriate French words, as the context was intended to mean “late.” The French word “douche,” meaning shower, was also the subject of a separate complaint.

Families mourn loved ones Russia. Oil activists Bus-train crash victims. Cause of collision that killed six at Ottawa rail crossing still in question JOE LOFARO

Metro in Ottawa

Ottawa police released the names and ages of all six victims in Wednesday’s crash between an OC Transpo doubledecker bus and a VIA Rail train in Barrhaven, Ont. Numerous agencies and people in the community have been moved to express condolences to the families of the victims, and some families communicated statements about their loss through the Ottawa police. Friends Connor Boyd and Kyle Nash both attended John McRae Secondary School before moving on to study at Carleton University. Boyd’s friend Kayla Bennett wrote on her Facebook page: “Connor Boyd you were such an amazing person. I have

Grieving wife

Terry Woodard, whose husband, David Woodard, 46, was driving the bus Wednesday, spoke with AM 640’s John Oakley. • “David was in good health. He didn’t fall asleep at the wheel.... Either he didn’t see the lights or the barricade wasn’t down just in time,” she said. • In a Facebook post she wrote: “Today I lost my HUSBAND the love of my LIFE my best friend ...”

everyone for their support and ask for privacy to grieve at this time.” A statement issued on behalf of Karen Krzyzewski’s family reads: “We are very saddened by the loss of Karen. She was a gentle spirit who

was caring and compassionate to others. She loved life to the fullest. Karen was the mother of two young adult children. She is survived by her parents and a brother and two sisters.” No family statements were released through police con-

cerning the final two crash victims; Rob More, 35, and Michael Bleakney, 57. Bleakney’s Google Plus and LinkedIn profiles listed him as a geotechnical engineer at Public Works and Government Services Canada.

Two Canadian activists are among a group of 25 people who were being held at gunpoint aboard a Greenpeace ship, the environmental group said Thursday. Arctic Campaign Coordinator Christy Ferguson said Paul Ruzycki of Port Colborne, Ont., and a man from Montreal whose name was not released were arrested when Russian Coast Guard officers boarded their vessel, which Greenpeace says was in international waters. Ferguson said at least 15 members of the Coast Guard used helicopters and ropes to rappel on board the Arctic Sunrise, a Greenpeace ship carrying a crew bent on protesting offshore oil drilling in the Arctic. The crew were being held in the ship’s mess, she said, adding no injuries have been reported. The incident took place Thursday. the canadian press

Mount Sinabung flares up again More than 15,000 residents have fled a volcano that rumbled to life less than a week ago in Indonesia. Local airlines have been warned to avoid flying near the mountain as thick ash continues to spew from its crater, an official said Thursday. The 2,600-metre volcano first erupted Sunday after being dormant for three years. A larger eruption occurred two days later. Volcanic ash and thick smoke were belched up to three kilometres into the air. The volcano’s last eruption in August 2010 killed two people and forced 30,000 others to flee. the associated press

Mumbai, India. Police charge five in gang rape of young photojournalist Police in Mumbai filed charges against four men and a juvenile in the gang rape of a photojournalist that fuelled further debate about women’s safety after a fatal assault in New Delhi sparked mass protests. The 600-page charge sheet filed in a magistrate’s court lists details of the attack last month in Mumbai, citing 86 witnesses and DNA evidence, the Press Trust of India reported Thursday. It said a separate charge sheet was filed with a juvenile court against the minor boy. The 22-year-old photojournalist was on assignment with a male colleague at an abandoned textile mill in Mumbai’s Lower Parel area — where luxury malls and

condominiums stand alongside slums — on Aug. 22 when they were approached by several men who offered to gain permission to shoot photos in the building. Once inside, the pair was attacked. The male colleague was beaten and tied up while the attackers took turns raping the woman. The Mumbai charges come a little more than a week after a New Delhi court sentenced four men to death for the fatal gang rape of a 23-year-old medical student on a moving bus in the capital last December. That attack sparked huge protests in the capital and prompted discussions about violence against women. the associated press

A car lies buried in mud after flooding triggered by Tropical Storm Manuel in Mexico. the associated press

Dozens killed by Mexico’s storms Acapulco. Tropical Storm Manuel ravages nation, destroying 35,000 homes and killing at least 97 A mass of dirt, rock and mud swept down the hillside in the remote mountain village of La Pintada, burying half the hamlet and leaving 68 people missing in its mad race to the river bed below. It was the biggest known tragedy caused by twin weekend storms that struck Mexico, creating floods and landslides across the nation and killing at least 97 people as of Thursday — not counting those missing in La Pintada.

wave struck on Monday afternoon, Mexico’s Independence Day. Nancy Gomez, 21, said Thursday she heard a strange sound and went to look out the doorway of her family’s house, her one-year-old baby clutched in her arms. She saw the ground move, then felt a jolt from behind as her father tried to push her to safety. When the rain-soaked hillside, drenched by days of rain during the tropical storm, gave way, it swept up Gomez in a wave of dirt that covered her entirely, leaving only a small air pocket between her and her baby. Eventually, relatives came from a nearby house and dug her and the baby out. the associated Press

Homeless man’s honesty pays off Big reward for a big heart. More than $91,000 has been donated to a fund for Glen James after he turned in a backpack filled with thousands of dollars The overwhelming response to a fund set up for a Boston homeless man who turned in a backpack he found filled with more than $40,000 in cash and traveller’s cheques is a “statement to everyone in America,” says the Virginia man who started the drive. In just over two days, more than $91,000 has been donated to the fund for Glen James. James flagged down a police officer Saturday after he found the backpack containing $2,400 in cash and

almost $40,000 in traveller’s cheques at the South Bay Mall In Boston. The man who lost it told workers at a nearby mall store and they called police, who later returned the backpack to him. Boston police honoured James with a special citation Monday. After reading media accounts of James’ honesty, a stranger, Ethan Whittington

of Midlothian, Va., started a fund for James on the crowdfunding site By early Thursday, $91,855 in donations had been made. Whittington, a 27-year-old accounts manager for a marketing firm, said he decided to try to raise money for James after reading about his honesty. Now Whittington says he’s overwhelmed by the generosity of strangers. “The fact that he’s in the situation he is, being homeless, it blew my mind that he would do this (turn in the backpack),” Whittington said Wednesday. “It’s caught on like wildfire ever since,” he said. “It’s brought me a lot of hope.... This isn’t only about rewarding a great guy. I think it’s a statement to everyone in America. If we come together and work toward one thing and work together, then we can make it happen.” the associated press

Gen Yers aid Syrian refugees Jordan. As their leaders dither over Syria, Western 20-somethings roll up their sleeves to help country’s refugees ELISABETH BRAW

Metro World News

Every morning, Dina El-Kassaby heads to the Zaatari, Jordan refugee camp. The enormous site, located seven kilometres across the border from Syria in northern Jordan, requires an enormous staff. It has quickly grown from nothing to housing some 150,000 Syrian refugees in one year. And they have nowhere to go. El-Kassaby, a 22-year-old from Vancouver, is one of the surprising number of young Westerners who’ve opted to work there. “There’s a stereotype that refugees are lazy,” she notes. “That’s false as far as Syrians are concerned. There are nurses, teachers, lawyers, and truck drivers here. Almost everyone I talk to asks about work opportunities. Women are well-educated, too.” Down Zaatari’s main thoroughfare, refugees have set up myriads of unofficial shops, selling everything from shampoo to wedding dresses. They call the dusty patch the “Champs Elysees.” Perhaps it’s this civilized aspect of the Syrian conflict that inspires young Westerners to help: After all, until a year ago the refugees lived middle-class lives not unlike ours. Or perhaps it’s the recognition that we could find ourselves in the same situa-

tion. Or is it shame over the fact that 100,000 Syrians have been killed, more than 4.2 million people are displaced within Syria and two million have fled to other countries, while the West dithers over a course of action? David Lampert, an 18-yearold from Vermont, asked his online Arabic teacher how to volunteer in Jordan, and travelled to the town of Mafraq near Jordan’s border with Syria. “I just wanted to help the Syrian people,” he explains as I meet him at the local church. Mafraq, a town of 60,000, now houses some 20,000 Syrian refugees. The church, supported by Mercy Corps, an NGO, provides necessities like

• Job surplus. With many aid workers returning home after several years or just several months, there’s plenty of turnover. That means lots of job openings. • Job site. Visit, which lists virtually every aid worker opening, from a communications internship at the UN Refugee Agency to multi-year postings for managers. You can search by level of work experi-


food and blankets to newly-arrived families, as well as a safe space for children and parents to rest. Canadian Haitham Betts, 23, also helps out at the church, doing odd jobs and simply spending time with the new arrivals. “Helping people when they’re in a crisis situation is so important to them on a personal level,” he says. Of the UN World Food Programme’s staff of 80 in Jordan, 33 are aged 35 or younger — nine of them Westerners. Mercy Corps reports that 80 per cent of its volunteers are 35 and under. Of course, this hugely complex and fast-moving

refugee crisis isn’t managed by 20-somethings. “It’s important to remember that the people in charge are officials with long-time emergency experience,” notes Marc Vergara, UNICEF’s Head of Communications in Jordan. And local Jordanian staff carry out a wide range of tasks, from delivering food to mounting tents. But the young Westerners are right here on the ground, providing a crucial service to thousands of desperate people. “I want people at home to understand the horrific levels of violence going on in Syria, and how terribly difficult it is to pack up and leave,” Aoife McConnell, a 27-year-old UN




How to become an aid worker

• Adapt & help. You have to be willing to adapt to new living conditions. And of course you have to be willing to help. You’re not a colonial manager.




Aoife McConnell, 27, from Ireland: “It’s really tough to get the message out.” ELISABETH BRAW/METRO WORLD NEWS

Refugee Agency worker from Ireland, tells me when I meet her in Mafraq. “But it’s really tough to get the message out,” McConnell adds. “The reality in the world is, how can we ask people who’re worried about their


own economy to give money to Syrian refugees? “But consider this: Every night when you go to bed, another 1,000 Syrians have made the heart-wrenching decision to leave and are crossing over the border to Jordan.”


ence (hundreds of jobs are available for those with 0-3 years’ experience), country and area of work. The site tells you how to apply. • Email. Like UN Refugee Agency worker Aoife McConnell did, you can also send your resumé to NGOs. For the UN World Food Program, for example, email jordan.recruitment@ • Pay. NGOs typically pay a monthly salary, and a good one for the standards of the respective country. The employer often provides housing and trips back to one’s home country.

Getting by at a camp is a hospital. With a little help “Now good time to from Italian friends get in there” Above the thousands of sandcoloured tents in Zaatari flies an Italian flag. It’s the Italian hospital: Seven doctors, 10 nurses and one dentist work in the modest building. “We have around 700 patients per week,” Dr. Basham Anakrih, a Jordanian surgeon, tells me as I visit. As we speak, a man in a wheelchair is brought in by his son; he hands Anakrih a prescription that needs to be signed. The young doctor asks him a few questions and signs the form. Meanwhile, in an-

other surgical room — closed only by a curtain — a colleague of Anakrih circumcises a baby boy. Though the hospital is small — the camp’s French and Moroccan hospitals have beds — it performs a crucial service to the Zaatari camp. “All equipment is paid for by Italy,” explains Anakrih as he proudly shows me the hospital’s incubator and X-ray machine. Jordan provides the hospital staff. ELISABETH BRAW/METRO WORLD NEWS


Syria and the region are Level 3 (the highest UN emergency level). That means that UN agencies worldwide are asked to supply staff, because they need people with experience in emergencies or technical skills like water and sanitation. UNICEF usually has

15 people in Jordan — now we’re at 50. The UN will make many of the staff assisting Syrian refugees permanent. Right now we’re planning for the next two to three years. Of course we can only guess how many refugees will cross the border to Jordan, but our estimate is that we’ll have one million refugees here next year. Both the UN and the NGOs are looking for people with the skills I mentioned, so now is a good time to try to get in if you have the expertise. In addition to full-time staff, the UN and NGOs also have staff on a consulting basis.

Three high-profile chefs were bursting with excitement during their first day on the set as judges for the new TV show MasterChef Canada. Restaurateurs Michael Bonacini, Claudio Aprile and Alvin Leung will put home chef contestants through their paces in the Canadian version of the Gordon Ramsay hit, expected to debut on CTV in the winter of 2014, the network announced Thursday. “It was incredible.

SCENE WEEKEND, September 20-22, 2013



• Richard: ••••• • Mark: •••••

Reel Guys


Hugh Jackman pulls out claws of a different kind for Prisoners.


How far would you go? Prisoners. Hugh Jackman shines as a volatile vigilante in this film about fractured families searching for justice Richard: Mark, Death Wish — the Charles Bronson revenge drama — painted its main character as a vigilante hero, someone who evened the score when the police couldn’t. Prisoners isn’t as cut and dried. It asks the question, how far would you go to get the information you need to protect your family? As played by Hugh Jackman, Keller Dover is a conflicted man.

I think he knows what he’s doing is wrong, but doesn’t see a choice. Either way, it’s going to get audiences talking about the ethics of vigilantism. What did you think? Mark: There will be a lot of debate about the rougher scenes in this film. But it’s a debate that has been in the news all through Jack Bauer’s similar dilemma in 24 and the American waterboarding controversy. It probably goes back to Machiavelli and his “ends justifies the means” dictum. But no matter which side you are on this is a gripping thriller that didn’t let me go for its full two and a half hour running time. RC: It is good stuff, but it al-

most felt like two movies to me. The first hour-and-a-half is a good family drama about a man pushed to extremes after the disappearance of his daughter, while the last hour feels different. I don’t want to give anything away, but it becomes more like an episode of Criminal Minds than the first part. I enjoyed both halves, but I preferred the complexity of the family drama. MB: I guess the long first half gives it the depth so the second half feels more than an episode of Criminal Minds. It requires great acting, which it has, although seeing Hugh Jackman in the lead, I kept expecting him to burst into song in the first half hour. Did you like Paul Dano?

Should he send Brad Dourif a cut of his paycheque? RC: I thought the performances were uniformly strong. We’re used to seeing Jackman differently — as a superhero or as a 19th century balladeer — but here he’s really volatile and powerful. Dano takes a tough, thankless role and in the little screen time he isn’t chained up or worse (no spoilers here!) keeps us wondering about the guilt or innocence of his character. MB: There are a lot of plot twists in this movie and Dano’s character is only one of them. This is the kind of movie you should see with an empty bladder because you won’t want to miss any tricks.


Keller and Grace Dover (Hugh Jackman and Maria Bello), Franklin and Nancy Birch (Terrence Howard and Viola Davis) and their kids spend Thanksgiving together. After dinner the youngest members of the family, Anna Dover (Erin Gerasimovich) and Joy Birch (Kyla Drew Simmons) go for a walk and never return. The police, led by Detective Loki (Jake Gyllenhaal), arrest a suspect, Alex Jones (Paul Dano) who Keller is convinced is guilty. When Alex is released, Keller takes matters into his own hands. Kidnapping Jones, he tries to beat a confession out of him. When that doesn’t work his methods escalate.

He’s one spicy meatball — again she looks at me like, “No it’s not. You’re crazy.” I just hope maybe when she sees this one that she realizes it’s actually her dad, because she loves Flint Lockwood, and my wife and I are like, “That’s your father.”

Bill Hader. Former SNL star has had a few big life changes — so it’s nice to go back to a familiar role Ned Ehrbar

Metro World News in Hollywood

Bill Hader is adjusting to life after Saturday Night Live and as a recent New York-to-Los Angeles transplant. Luckily there’s some familiar territory to ground him, like his latest, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2, the followup to his hugely successful 2009 animated film. Now if only he could get some credit at home for the franchise. This isn’t your first animated film. How’ve you found voice acting? All you do is just yell all your lines, every single one. All my lines in this movie, I’m screaming — even when it’s a very nice intimate moment

with me and Sam Sparks. I’ve been doing voice work for a while and I love it. The thing is, everyone always assumes that it’s really easy, and it’s like the hardest work I’ve ever done. When I

leave a session for any of the animated things I’ve done, my brain doesn’t work. It’s incredibly hard work. But it’s very gratifying. And now that I have kids it’s great — when they’ll recognize that it’s me.

Eventually. Eventually? My four-year-old loves the first movie but won’t accept that that’s me as Flint. I’ll be like, “That’s Daddy!” And

Just before you finished up Saturday Night Live, you posted a failed sketch online featuring you and Justin Bieber as country singers that never made it out of dress rehearsal — and featured the set collapsing on Bieber. Why release it? Oh yeah, it’s one of my favourite moments ever in a show. In my whole time being there that was one of my favourite times ever. Everything that could go wrong went wrong. It was the wrong audience for that thing, it was just everything about it went horribly wrong. It was fantastic. It was just like watching your house catch on fire and just laughing. It was great.

Recurring sketches on SNL can be a double-edged sword. The audience likes being in on it, so we do the Californians or whatever and people know what to expect. But then we get a lot of flack for it — “Well, it’s just the same thing again.” But you’re really doing those sketches for the live audience, and the live audience likes to be in on it. So when I’d come out as Stefan or something, any time we would mess with it — we would do it at dress rehearsal where I would kind of mess with the structure of it a little bit — it would always lose people. How has the move from New York to L.A. been? We just got out with the kids and everything. It’s crazy. It’s all right, it’s just been really intense because my wife had a movie coming out this summer — she wrote and directed The To-Do List. I was supposed to be at the press day for it but I threw up that morning.

Doing justice to a Wilde romance Rush. Olivia Wilde wanted to show the love model Suzy Miller had for James Hunt during their short marriage Olivia Wilde was more than

Metro World News in Hollywood

happy to show up for Rush — even if her part only took nine days to film — just to get a chance to be directed by Ron Howard. In the film, Wilde plays Suzy Miller, a high-society fashion model briefly married to Formula 1 driver James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth). Nice work if you can get it. You don’t get a lot of screen time to get this character across.

Yeah, she’s there to serve a purpose — I think to show a bit of James Hunt’s personal life, which was tumultuous. I loved the way that he charmed Suzy. She wasn’t just impressed by his fame or looks, it was the way he approached her with such fearless romanticism. She’s a really interesting woman. She remembers James very fondly, which was a big clue for me. I wanted to do justice to the love story that I believe existed between them. She had a great career and certainly didn’t marry him for his money. They married out of a spontaneous romantic spirit, and I really wanted that to show. I think in retrospect she really loved him and was glad they had that time together. You’re playing a famous woman who has to deal with a lot of attention from the press and paparazzi, something you do quite well in

What Wilde wants

Wilde says she’d love to get into directing. “I made a short years ago. It was my first foray into it and it kind of gave me confidence to do it again in a bigger way,” Wilde says of stepping behind the camera. “It let me know that I’ve never been happier than when I was on set directing. It just finally felt like I put on shoes that fit. I was determined to do it again, but with the right story that I wrote — it must be a different skill to direct someone else’s script. I would like to try that, but I think the next one will be something I write. I’m working on that now.”

not letting it feel like a personal attack on you but understanding it as its own bizarre industry — and a necessary evil for certain parts of this job.

I think I get it easier than a lot of other people, so I try not to complain. But there Drama

are moments when you’re just overwhelmed by it. But who knows? My hope is that with social-networking and Facebook culture everybody’s turning themselves into a celebrity, and maybe the complete lack of privacy for everyone will backfire and people won’t support the industry that specializes in stalking. That would be nice. Crime/Drama

In what is a fictional reimagining of his own documentary Planet B-Boy (which he conveniently references throughout), Benson Lee’s Battle of the Year tells the story of an American breakdancing “dream team” who compete against odds for the world’s title. With predictably formulaic plotting and characters as cardboard as a breakdancer’s podium, Battle at least has some amazing dance and choreography. It’s just too bad those sequences appear edited together by a speedfreak with a penchant for cutaways.

Has anybody in the movies ever happened upon a large sum of money and gone on to live happily ever after? Things haven’t been going well for John Moon (Sam Rockwell). He’s been bouncing from job to job ever since the bank foreclosed on his farm, spending occasional weekends in jail whenever he gets caught poaching deer up at the nature conservancy. Life goes from crummy to downright miserable when another illegal hunting trip ends with John accidentally shooting a young woman dead. There are plenty of grimy characters but precious little suspense. Sean Burns

Fandom makes people do weird things. In Austenland, Jane Hayes (Keri Russell) blows her savings on a Jane Austen “experience” run by Jane Seymour in a bid to meet her own Mr. Darcy. Predictably things don’t pan out and Jane finds herself caught in a modern Pride & Prejudice situation, held back by her social status and falling for the wrong guy. It’s a clever set up, but writer-director Jerusha Hess can’t seem to break out of the rote romantic comedy box. Worse, the jokes fail to yield any laughs.

Salinger that the author would have hated more than Salinger, stylistically speaking. This is a standard expository doc of overly dramatic music cues, filled with constant inserts of an actor furiously typing away while chain-smoking.

Not dead yet, and she’s proud of it Salty comic Sarah Silverman says she feels like a hypocrite admitting she was hurt by jokes about her age at Comedy Central’s recent roast of actor James Franco, given the nature of the special and the jabs she took at others on the dais. But she also feels humour about women getting older is “an easy conceit.” Last week on the FX series Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell, the 42-year-old standup star said she was taken aback and her self-esteem took a hit when her age was skewered by some of the younger roasters on the special that aired earlier this month in the U.S. In an interview to discuss her headlining gig at Toronto’s second annual JFL42 comedy festival on Friday, she acknowledged she “said brutal jokes about people, too” on

On getting older

“Wrinkles are your life, that’s you on there, that’s your experience. There has to be a point where we embrace that and don’t fight it.” Sarah Silverman, on the pressure some women feel to shoot up their faces with Botox and fillers

the program. But she added, “It’s a very accepted thing, even in the most progressive of circles, to shame women for the crime of not dying.” “It’s a self-worth thing that takes more work to combat if you’re a woman than a man,” said Silverman. “I mean, Jesus — I think I’m the age Steve Carell was when he made his first movie, you know, and I’m deemed old.” The Manchester, N.H., native said she understands some people’s perception of her age may be off because she’s been in show business since age 21, when she was a writer and occasional per-

former on Saturday Night Live. She then went on to appear in various series and films, eventually landing her own show, The Sarah Silverman Program, which ran from 2007 to 2010. Her recent projects include a role in Canadian filmmaker Sarah Polley’s 2011 romantic dramedy Take This Waltz, and the JASH comedy YouTube channel, which she co-created. “It’s just a weird perception thing, and that’s fine. I’m old news in some ways,” said Silverman, who recently filmed an HBO standup special that will air in November. “But just in terms of, as soon as a woman gets old enough to be vital and have opinions and be strong and express herself, she’s often shamed into crawling under a rock — and a lot of women do it because they aren’t given the chance.” Silverman lamented the pressure some women face to “shoot up their faces with Botox and fillers ... and then they get criticized for that.” THE CANADIAN PRESS

An homage to the past

From left, Jeff Garlin, Wendi McLendon-Covey, George Segal, Troy Gentile, Sean Giambrone and Hayley Orrantia in a scene from The Goldbergs, a new sitcom premiering Tuesday, Sept. 24, at 9 p.m. ET. the associated press

The Goldbergs. New series based on archive of VHS tapes from writer’s childhood From I Love Lucy at the dawn of TV, through Roseanne and Seinfeld and scores of longforgotten shows, situation comedy has found inspiration in the lives of its creators. But few sitcoms have been more autobiographical than The Goldbergs, which draws on the childhood and high-decibel domestic life of Adam Goldberg, who grew up to be an actor, director and producer. But before that, as this show reveals amusingly, was a pint-

sized videographer, capturing the hijinks of his home life as a preteen with his family’s shoebox-sized VHS camcorder. This was the 1980s, a simpler time when “there were no parenting blogs or peanut allergies,” as the show notes wistfully, “just a whole lot of crazy.” Now the archive of tapes young Adam recorded (along with vivid memories he retains as an adult) propel The Goldbergs, a full-throated, funny and oddly charming comedy that serves as a timeless homage to child-raising. “This is how you communicate: You scream and yell and a minute later everything is fine,” says Goldberg. “Then you move on.” And since there are more

than 100 tapes reaching all the way into Goldberg’s college years with his family, there will be no shortage of source material if the show catches on. (It premieres Tuesday at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.) Goldberg says he nursed the idea for the show for years. “For a long time I just wasn’t ready to write something so personal about my family,” he says. “Then I had kids of my own, and I was able to look at how my parents raised me with some perspective.” Goldberg, now 42 and the father of a 5-year-old boy and a 2-year-old daughter, is ably portrayed as a precocious, camerawielding 11-year-old by newcomer Sean Giambrone. Adam’s overbearing moth-

er Beverly and gruff, excitable dad Murray are played by Wendi McLendon-Covey (Bridesmaids) and Jeff Garlin (Curb Your Enthusiasm). Viewers who wonder just how true-to-life the series is will have their doubts eased at the end of the first episode, when snippets from the show unfold alongside clips from Goldberg’s tapes that mirror the scripted words and actions. Goldberg says the family members were initially “wary and nervous” at the notion of a sitcom about them, “but when they took another look at those old tapes, they were very touched: We yelled a lot, but at the end of the day we really loved each other.” the associated press

Lohan on the straight and narrow

The Word

Kate Winslet. all photos getty images

Kate Winslet is going to stay Kate Winslet Despite marrying Ned Rocknroll last year, Kate Winslet won’t be taking his name, as she “was never going to change my name to Rocknroll,” she tells the Telegraph. And apparently it has nothing to do with how ridiculous her husband’s legally changed name might sound. Winslet reasons that she didn’t change her name when married to Jim Threapleton or Sam Mendes, either. “I quite like Kate

Winslet. In fact I think it’s very flashy,” she says. “I’m proud of my name because I’m one of three girls and we have one boy in our family so essentially the only person who is going to carry the name along is my brother and he doesn’t have any children at the moment.” Winslet, who is already mother to Mia Threapleton, 12, and Joe Mendes, 9, is currently pregnant with her first child with Rocknroll.

It’s Dawson’s Creek all over again the word

Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson have been together for seven years, making them one of Hollywood’s more successful couples. But their first date was so awful, he’s lucky he ever got to see her again. “He thinks he asked me out on a date, which is not true, because I did not agree to that. I agreed to have drinks with him,” Kruger said during an appearance on Conan on Tuesday.

Through the power of an eager expression and a clean shirt, Jackson managed to turn drinks into dinner — where, the German beauty says, he talked about himself for an hour and a half, in a restaurant that made her ill. “It was overgrown with beautiful flowers, to which I had a huge allergic reaction — like really, really bad. I was

sneezing and coughing and my eyes were watery.” He took her home in a stinky car his dog had chewed up, and when he went in for the kiss she seriously considered slapping him. All of which answered a burning question I didn’t know I had: How much does Joshua Jackson resemble Pacey in real life? Answer: So much!

In her post-rehab bid to stay clean, Lindsay Lohan has apparently found the right kind of partner. The troubled starlet is reportedly dating former football player Matt Nordgren, according to Us Weekly. “He’s a great influence on her, and her friends and family love him,” a source says. “He’s older, a successful businessman and he has been a great friend to her. He’s also a Christian and won’t drink around her. He’s trying to keep her sober and on the straight and narrow. He’s really good for her.”

A Sosaties sidekick LIQUID ASSETS


Peter Rockwell @therealwineguy

If I learned one thing about South Africa when I was touring its Cape vineyards a few years ago, it was that its population is gaga for grilling. They love it so much that the country’s national holiday is called National Braai Day. Sosaties is a South African twist on the Mediterranean kebab that typically skewers lamb, apricots and curry powder. Liquid partners don’t come easy. Even if it’s deployed lightly, the curry makes this dish a wine pairing challenge. While an off-dry, white wine made with riesling or chenin blanc will hold up well when your plate throws some heat, sauvignon blancled white blends are a less conventional, though equally accommodating, choice. The Beach House 2012 Sauvignon Blanc Semillon ($9.95 to $11.99) combines bright, citrusy flavours with a soft, tropical undercurrent that makes a great mate for shellfish and the spicy side of Sosaties’ personality.

S is for scrumptious South African Sosaties

This recipe, a South African take on kebabs, is a staple of the country’s National Braai Day celebrations.

Braai. The Afrikaans term for barbecue is a custom so prevalent in South Africa that it was given its own holiday. Celebrate on Sept 24. 1. Heat the oil in a frying pan

and sauté the onion rings and green pepper blocks until very lightly cooked, making sure the onion rings remain intact. Drain them on absorbent paper.


Combine the apricot jam, vinegar, sugar, bay leaves, garlic, salt, pepper, turmeric and

curry powder in a ceramic or glass bowl and add the onion rings and green pepper.

3. Add the meat to the mixture

and marinate for 24 hours in the fridge, stirring two or three times.

4. If the apricots are not soft,

soak them in a little water until plump. You might also want to soak the skewers so that the exposed ends do not burn to charcoal during the cooking process.

5. When you are ready to cook, thread the cubes of meat, apricots, onion rings and peppers onto the skewers. Your barbecue’s temperature should be


Ingredients • 50 ml olive or cooking oil • 2 large onions, both sliced into broad rings • One green pepper cut into approx. 2.5 cm squares • 3 tbsp of smooth apricot jam • 15 ml wine vinegar • 1 tbsp brown sugar • 2 crushed bay leaves • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed

375 degrees or a medium heat. The recommended cooking time is 6 minutes per side with a half turn at three minutes.


Pour the marinade into a

• 1/2 tbsp salt • 1/2 tsp of pepper • 1 tsp turmeric • 1 tbsp curry powder (mild korma to hot madras – the choice is yours) • 500 g boned leg of lamb, cut into 2.5 cm cubes • 125 g dried apricots

saucepan, bring to a boil and keep warm to serve with the sosaties. CHEF CHARLES KERR, CHEF DE CUISINE, CATERING, OF THE DISTILLERY RESTAURANTS CORPORATION

Remembering a historic journey


Lions say Simon can forget about friendship

Fred Sasakamoose. The first aboriginal Canadian NHL player speaks during the Giants’ jersey unveiling CAM TUCKER

It all started on a frozen slough on the Sandy Lake Reserve in northern Saskatchewan. That’s where Fred Sasakamoose began his journey toward becoming the first aboriginal Canadian to ever play in the National Hockey League, and where he learned to “dance” on his skates, as he joyfully described it. Sasakamoose was on hand Thursday when the Vancouver Giants unveiled a new tribute jersey — paying homage to contributions to hockey by First Nations — that they will wear in Friday’s home opener against the Victoria Royals at the Pacific Coliseum. His grandpa would take Sasakamoose down to the slough, chilled to hardened ice in the dead of those often brutally cold prairie winters, and shovel off the snow. Sasakamoose would then take to the ice on bob skates. His stick was crafted from a willow tree, the puck from frozen horse manure as opposed to vulcanized rubber. His childhood was interrupted when he was taken from his family to the St. Michael’s Indian Residential

The Vancouver Giants host the Victoria Royals in their WHL home opener Friday at the Pacific Coliseum. • The Giants are looking to rebound from last season, when they finished with a league-worst 21-49-2-0

Despite those traumatic experiences, he went on to play four years of junior hockey for the Moose Jaw Canucks during the early 1950s, before history came to him by way of the telegram — “There was no …” as he pointed to a reporter’s iPhone. It was a notice that he had been called up to the Chicago Blackhawks. When Sasakamoose received the news he was heading to the NHL, memories of his grandpa came back. “He never left me.”

BC Lions defensive back Ryan Phillips will always cherish his friendship with Geroy Simon. But not so Sunday. The friendship will be put on hold when Phillips and the Lions visit Simon and his new club, the Saskatchewan Roughriders, in a key West Division matchup at Mosaic Stadium. Geroy Simon “I THE CANADIAN PRESS (played) with him for eight years and he’s definitely been a great mentor, a great guy, a great teammate and a personal friend,” said Phillips, a 30-year-old Seattle native. “Our families are connected and things like that. “But, at the end of the day, once we get between those lines, Geroy’s definitely the enemy. He’s in the green and white, so he’s definitely the opposition. So we’ve got to make sure we take him out and minimize him and make sure he makes no big plays — because I know he’s looking forward to coming in and making a couple big plays against us.” B.C. (7-4) can move into a second-place tie with Saskatchewan (8-3), which has lost two straight. This will be the first meeting between the teams since Simon, who played 12 of his 15 CFL seasons with the Lions, was traded to Saskatchewan in January.

March 21 - April 20 It’d be smart to keep your opinions to yourself over the next 24 hours, but it’s unlikely you will. Maybe it’s for the best. Maybe it’s time you lay down the law. But make sure you stick to the law too.


April 21 - May 21 You’re not allowed to fail. At least that’s what you tell yourself. The planets say different — they say you’re human like everyone else.


May 22 - June 21 Mercury, your ruler, is at odds with Pluto, planet of excess, which means you will most likely open your mouth and put both feet in it — again. Just be careful what you say does not cost you some serious money.


June 22 - July 23 You want to be totally honest but you fear that if you speak your mind it will be taken as a declaration of war by certain people. What of it? That’s their problem, not yours. Speak up.


July 24 - Aug. 23 There is something that needs to be cut out of your life and if you don’t get rid of it now, you may be stuck with it forever. Pluto power will help you to be ruthless today.


Aug. 24 - Sept. 23 You may be in the minority as far as certain viewpoints are concerned but according to the planets you are on the side of the angels, so stop worrying about what others might think and do what you know to be right.

Sept. 24 - Oct. 23 Libra is a cardinal sign, which among other things means you enjoy arguing about controversial issues. Today though, you must make sure that all your facts are just that.


Oct. 24 - Nov. 22 You’ll shock people with what you say, and with the forthright way in which you say it. Pluto, your ruler, is moving in your favour again, so chances are you’ll get away with it.


Nov. 23 - Dec. 21 Why are you so scared to make contact with new people? Whatever the reason, get over it because you will meet some interesting characters today — the kind who can open doors and swell your bank balance.


Dec. 22 - Jan. 20 You have every right to express your opinions but don’t forget others have a right to disagree with you. Some of the feedback you get today may not be favourable but it will make you think and that’s good.


Jan. 21 - Feb. 19 Try not to get bogged down in details. Once you look closely at one thing, you will start looking closely at everything, and there’s just no need. You’re a “big picture” person, so leave the small stuff to others.


Feb. 20 - March 20 Don’t waste time explaining to others why you decided on a certain course of action. Either they don’t understand or they think it will inconvenience them. SALLY BROMPTON
