West Cracroft Island


Three people dead in float plane crash

Alexa Dredge, left, and Katie Nordgren, two students in Simon Fraser University’s Department of Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies, started a website to draw attention to harassment on Metro Vancouver’s transit system. CONTRIBUTED

Site exposes women’s transit horror stories Sexual harassment. Women share tales of being followed, touched on TransLink EMILY JACKSON

A 12-year-old girl in a schooluniform kilt who had multiple men follow her home off the bus. A young woman who froze in her bus seat while a man rubbed his bare foot against her for 30 minutes. (“I felt SUPER gross but I still don’t know if it

counts as sexual harassment.”) These are a few of the anonymous stories submitted to “Harassment on TransLink,” a website set up by two Simon Fraser University undergrads to draw attention to sexual and gender-based violence on Metro Vancouver’s transit system. Dozens of stories have poured in just five days since they launched the website for a gender-studies class, fourthyear student Katie Nordgren said Thursday. She and her classmate Alexa Dredge started the project due to the personal experience of “not feeling very safe riding public transit.” The volume of stories

Step up

“I would love it if bystanders would feel empowered to step up, especially big dudes who aren’t physically at risk.” Transit spokesperson Anne Drennan

doesn’t surprise Nordgren — she has been sworn at for ignoring advances and even had her headphones pulled out — but she was disturbed by the severity of many incidents (including death threats) and the silence of bystanders. Transit police weren’t sur-

prised to hear the stories, either, spokeswoman Anne Drennan said. The problem is sexual harassment is rarely reported. “We take harassment of any kind very, very seriously,” she said. “If we don’t hear about it, we can’t investigate it.” Sexual assaults tend to be under-reported (especially less violent acts such as groping or indecent exposure) because victims are ashamed or don’t think police can catch the suspect. “People tend to go to work and say, ‘You wouldn’t believe the creep I encountered on the SkyTrain,’ rather than reporting to police,” Drennan said.

Three people were killed Thursday when a small float plane crashed on a remote island off British Columbia. A Cessna 185 float plane carrying a pilot and two passengers crashed just before noon on West Cracroft Island. West Cracroft is among a series of remote islands east of Alert Bay, about 275 kilometres northwest of Vancouver. The crash happened on land near Potts Lagoon, a body of water that is home to a community of float homes, though the RCMP had yet to determine where the plane was headed. Cpl. Darren Lagan of the RCMP said search-andrescue personnel and RCMP officers from nearby Alert Bay headed to the scene, where they found all three people dead. “At this point, we are not releasing any details on those two passengers and pilot. Obviously in the very early hours of this, we have yet to make contact with their family and notify them of the tragic loss of their loved ones,” said Lagan. Lagan said a commercial shrimp boat was in the area and helped search-and-rescue officials determine where the plane went down. “They were an excellent source of information for the rescue co-ordination centre for the rescuers who were heading in,” he said. Three investigators from the Transportation Safety Board were headed to the scene, a spokesman for the agency said. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Jaw broken. Cops ask for public’s help in solving brutal attack on tourist A violent and apparently random attack on a 22-year-old tourist from the United Kingdom has Vancouver police asking for the public’s help. The woman had just split up with friends when she was attacked from behind at Main Street and 3rd Avenue on Oct. 19 around 3:30 a.m. She was knocked to the ground, where she was repeatedly kicked in the head and body until she was knocked unconscious. When she came to, she made her way to Main and Broadway and got in a taxi. The South Asian driver took her to her home near Main and East 56th Avenue, where she realized she needed to go to the hospital. “She doesn’t remember anything about the attack and doesn’t remember

Seemingly random

Police do not believe the attack was sexually motivated, nor do they believe it was a robbery, as the woman had nothing stolen.

much about the cab ride,” Sgt. Randy Fincham said at a Thursday news conference, asking anyone who saw the woman to call police. “We are also hoping to identify the South Asian taxi driver who assisted the woman the night of the attack so he can also provide much needed information.” The woman suffered a broken jaw, which was wired shut, and spent a day in hospital.

Get the shot or get a mask. Province wins battle over health workers’ flu rights A B.C. health-care workers union has lost its grievance against a provincial policy requiring members to get a flu shot or wear a mask during flu season — a development that may embolden other provinces to follow suit. An arbitrator appointed by the provincial Labour Relations Board ruled the policy is reasonable and a valid exercise of the employer’s management rights. “Health-care workers do not have to immunize; they have a choice to immunize or mask during the influenza season,” Robert Diebolt wrote in his decision, dated Slash wounds

Surrey man hurt in carport scuffle

A 47-year-old Surrey man suffered slash wounds after he confronted a man rifling through his carport early Thursday morning. The man thought he heard animals in his carport, but when he went to check he spotted a man going through his belongings. The two fought and the homeowner was cut twice with a sharp object, RCMP said in a news release. Jeff Hodson/Metro

There have been puzzling changes in the behaviour of northern resident killer whales that live off the north-central coast of B.C. and Alaska, says a Vancouver Aquarium scientist.

Time running out for Sensible B.C. Will it heat up or burn out? Quest for weed referendum a third done at halfway point Emily Jackson

Halfway through Dana Larsen’s campaign to decriminalize marijuana in B.C., he wishes he had more signatures, but still thinks he has a chance to meet his goal. About 120,000 signatures

had been collected as of Thursday, the official halfway point in Sensible B.C.’s 90-day campaign to force a provincial referendum on the issue. That’s about one-third of the between 400,000 and 500,000 signatures needed to trigger a referendum by the Dec. 9 deadline, Larsen said. “We’re not giving up hope yet; we’re doubling down on our efforts,” he said, noting momentum has been growing as awareness builds. More people are signing up to canvass for the cause, with volunteer numbers swelling to 3,300 from 1,400,


“I think we’ve got a good chance of pulling this off.” Dana Larsen or Sensible B.C.

he said. But it will be a challenge to get signatures from 10 per cent of registered voters in each of 85 electoral districts. Vancouver West End and Nelson are pretty much done, but canvassers are struggling in urban areas such as Burnaby, South Vancouver and

Surrey. Conservative Fraser Valley areas such as Abbotsford and Chilliwack have been surprisingly supportive, Larsen said. His theory is that Vancouver dwellers might be more complacent since law-enforcement typically ignores people smoking joints as they walk down the street, whereas smaller areas might “feel the threat of prohibition.” Whatever happens, Larsen noted this referendum attempt has gathered more signatures than any other except the HST.

Women to face charges over ‘bath salts’ Charges are pending against two women from West Kelowna after the seizure of potentially lethal drugs known as bath salts mailed from China. The Canada Border Services Agency seized 16 kilograms of methylone in three packages at the Vancouver International Mail Centre, where it processes mail for Western Canada.

The relatively new and highly addictive synthetic amphetamines being imported into the province comes in the form of a white or brown crystalline powder that looks like salt, the RCMP’s federal Serious Crime branch said Thursday. One parcel was intercepted on Aug. 23, and the other two on Aug. 26. They were both

destined for West Kelowna, where the two women were arrested on Sept. 19. Heather Ardiel, chief of the mail centre, said the parcels were declared as table salt. The substance was placed in a plastic bag wrapped in tin foil. “The CBSA places a high priority on the detection and interdiction of illegal drugs

at designated ports of entry,” Ardiel said. The so-called bath salts, which can be snorted, smoked or liquefied and then injected started showing up in Eastern Canada as early as 2011, and Mounties say users experience elevated heart rates and hallucinations and could easily overdose.

Trailer-park nightmare finally over for one resident Others still without power

‘Overjoyed.’ Stephen Chalmers has a new home thanks to donors from across the country

Eight residents with nowhere else to go still live at the Beladean Trailer Park in Surrey, which has been running on generators for nearly six weeks since an inadequately supervised motel demolition knocked the power out on Sept. 14.

Metro in Vancouver

As Stephen Chalmers stepped into his bright, spacious, new 1999 fifth-wheel in Langley, on Thursday, he went silent and just took it all in. Then, he burst into tears. “I live in a palace,” he said, his voice quivering with relief after having survived nearly six weeks in a run-down Surrey trailer park without power. Chalmers, who suffers from multiple mental illnesses including depression, was pushed to his limit when the landlord, K.B. Properties, failed to hire a health-and-safety co-ordinator for the demolition of the neighbouring Beladean Motel. The demolition crew hit live hydro wires, and ever since then the Beladean Trailer Park has been running on unreliable generators — and even those the landlord failed to provide until the city got involved. Chalmers wanted to leave, but his leaky 1989 trailer was too old and broken down to be accepted at most other trailer parks. Realizing how desperate the situation was, his sister, Marilyn Chase, started a crowdfunding campaign on with Metro’s assistance. Within five days the campaign hit its goal of $5,000. Metro then partnered with the

Travelhome trailer dealership in Langley, plus a very generous anonymous donor who heard Chalmers’ story on Classic Rock 101 and offered another $5,000, to buy him a refurbished, family-sized 26-foot trailer. On Thursday Travelhome staff also surprised Chalmers, who lives on disability, with plenty of home furnishings, such as pots and pans, towels, bedding and gift certificates for groceries. “I’m overwhelmed, overjoyed, ecstatically happy,” Chalmers said, before adding he wanted to send a message to the donors across the country

and as far away as Norway who made it all possible. Chalmers’ message to donors

“I don’t pass out the word love very often, but the amount of love that you people showed me is overwhelming, and for that I thank you and I love you.” Stephen Chalmers Chalmers has found a new, quiet trailer park to live in,

and is thrilled that he will be reunited with his beloved shih tzu, Spaghetti. He has been unable to live with her for the past two years because his old, leaky trailer wasn’t safe for her. “It means that I’m not totally alone,” he said. “The love that that dog shows me is absolutely undying and unconditional.” Several local politicians, including two MLAs and Surrey city councillor Barinder Rasode, showed up to the key handover to wish Chalmers well, and to promise him they will continue to fight for harsher penalties for negligent landlords.

“As we head into the winter and you look at serious issues like people not having electricity or heat, we are working on it right away,” said Rasode. “We’re hoping in the next couple of weeks that we’ll have a recommendation (on tougher bylaws) from our bylaws department.”

• “Everyone is trying to ease the stress occurring for the residents at the trailer park,” he said. • “The Hyland House Mobile Outreach team is working with people there to see if we can get them re-housed in collaboration with B.C. Housing and everyone who is at the table supporting us.”

Colour Information:

Rusty Johnson doesn’t like to brag but he does like to point out the facts of his barbecuing career. Since he first lit up a grill four years ago, the Port Moody griller has finished in the top bracket of every competition he’s entered. “I was never a losing team, I never had to work my way up,” the 32-year-old father of two said. “Whenever I go to a contest, I think — and I say this in a confident sense — it’s my competition to lose.” Next month, Johnson — who works for Shaw in his day job — will be the only British Columbian competing in the World Barbecue ChamCreative (Designer/AD/CD)


“I’ll sleep in a little cot beside my barbecue with alarms set to check on stuff.... You’re sitting there watching a piece of meat cook and it’s scary because you have 10 hours. At the end you have to cut in to it and see if you actually cooked it well.” Rusty Johnson on cooking competitions

pionships in Las Vegas. With a grand prize of $50,000 and the opportunity to promote his fledgling catering business, Johnson says he’d be delighted receiving any award for his grilling. He’s entering three categories: ribs, brisket and pork shoulder. While some may think it’s just cooking, Johnson compares competitions to endur-

ance races. “I’ll sleep in a little cot beside my barbecue with alarms set to check on stuff,” Johnson said. “You’re sitting there watching a piece of meat cook and it’s scary because you have 10 hours. At the end you have to cut in to it and see if you actually cooked it well.” Since entering his first beginner’s competition in Portland in 2009, he’s since competed in local and national competitions, taking home awards for his pulled pork, burgers, ribs and sirloin tri-tip. Johnson says winning has helped keep his dream alive. Top-of-the-line barbecues go for thousands of dollars and entrance fees range from $100 to $200. He says he wouldn’t be able to afford his passion if he wasn’t winning. There is one downside. “People never invite me and my family over for dinner. They always want to come over to my place and have me barbecue for them,” Johnson said.

NEWS WEEKEND, October 25-27, 2013

Ongoing scandal shows deep rifts in Tory ranks Getting nasty. Debate continues to rage over bid to oust disgraced senators Duffy, Wallin and Brazeau — and now it’s personal The Harper government’s bid for summary execution of senators Mike Duffy, Pamela Wallin and Patrick Brazeau has turned into an agonizingly slow soap opera that is exposing a nasty — and increasingly personal — family feud within the Conservative caucus. Debate over government motions to suspend, without pay, the three erstwhile Conservatives continued to rage in the Senate for the third straight day — with no end in sight. Thursday’s debate saw Marjory LeBreton, former government leader in the Senate, fire back at Duffy for alleging she was part of a “monstrous” conspiracy to intimidate him into accepting a secret deal to pay back ineligible expenses or face being disqualified from sitting in the Senate. She variously described Duffy’s claims as “utterly preposterous,” “blatant falsehood” and “stretching credulity.” And, although LeBreton didn’t directly question Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s judgment in appointing Duffy ‘Sickening’

Reform plan ruled unconstitutional

An Edmonton man has been sentenced to 14 months for what the judge called “sickening” abuse of a puppy. Kristopher David Barwell had pleaded guilty to causing injury, wounding or maiming an animal. When veterinarians first saw Zeus, a border collie, the dog’s hips were broken, there were maggot-infested wounds all over its body and bullets were found in his thigh and tail. After extensive treatment, the dog was given a new lease on life.

The Harper government’s most recent attempt at Senate reform has been declared unconstitutional in a stinging court ruling rendered Thursday. The Quebec Court of Appeal has released an opinion that the federal government had no right to create Senate elections and set term limits without seeking provincial approval. It says the fathers of Confederation considered the role of the Senate in great detail, and the conditions they drew up were essential to uniting the country.

journalism, trading as he did, more often than not, on gossip and the latest hot rumour,” LeBreton told the upper chamber. “And sometimes I was so disgusted that I felt like putting my foot through the television set.”

When anyone complained, Duffy would say, “It’s showbiz,” LeBreton said, implying that Duffy has taken the same approach to justifying his role in the Senate expenses scandal. the canadian press

Sex-assault claim. Sask. woman who felt ignored by police turns to YouTube A Saskatoon woman has turned to YouTube to have her voice heard after she says her allegations of sexual assault were dismissed by police. In a video uploaded to YouTube on Tuesday, 29-yearold Rebecca Campbell levels the accusations against her co-workers at a local restaurant. Campbell alleges the ordeal began 10 years ago after an acquaintance took advantage of her. “We had been at a party together and at the time I was actually homeless,” Campbell told Metro. “He had offered to let me crash on his couch

for a couple days, so I left the party with him and he attacked me and raped me.” Although she said she originally went to the police, she feels she was dismissed. A spokesperson for the Saskatoon Police Service, Alyson Edwards, said upon seeing the video, an officer from the sex-crimes division contacted Campbell. “We wanted to reach out to her right away so we could resolve any issues or concerns that she has and we wanted her to know that we do take her complaint very seriously,” said Edwards.

Condemned Paris tower turned into work of art Dereliction to creation. Graffiti artists take over apartment tower slated for demolition Condemned apartments covered in spray paint have probably never been in such demand. An apartment tower in eastern Paris that overlooks the Seine has been turned over to 105 street artists from around the world, giving them a chance to turn the trash-filled residence into art installation during the building’s final days. All their work in “Tour Paris 13” — named for the district the tower is in — will vanish by the end of the year, as the nine-storey building will begin to be demolished next week. Would-be visitors have lined up for up to eight hours for a one-hour visit.

The new art world

“We are the new artists. Graffiti art is the world’s biggest art movement.” Mear One, Los Angeles artist

“I didn’t want the spectators to come and look at art. I wanted the spectators to come and enter an art work,” said Mehdi Ben Cheikh, the gallery owner who initiated the project. “There are things everywhere — we enter a room, and have to turn around in every direction to understand the surroundings.” The result is a tower exhibiting a range of artistic styles. There’s a skull-inspired mural, Arabic calligraphy, a bloody bathroom, and a glowin-the-dark cow crawling with snakes. A handful of tower residents are refusing to leave until the bitter end. the associated press

Newtown. Demolition begins on building, site of deadly school shooting An official says the demolition has begun of the U.S. school where a gunman shot dead 20 young children and six adults in December. The top elected leader in Newtown, Conn., Pat Llodra, said Thursday that the demolition of the old Sandy Hook Elementary School building will take several weeks. Contractors are being asked to destroy materials to eliminate nearly every trace of the building. A new Newtown school is expected to open by December 2016. Students have been

Guyana. Judge rules man can marry girl he allegedly raped and impregnated A Guyana judge’s decision to allow the marriage of a 15-year-old girl to the man accused of raping and getting her pregnant has riled the South American country. Chief Justice Ian Chang ruled that the couple could marry on humanitarian grounds after the girl became pregnant. Her parents petitioned the court to authorize the union, saying they had given up trying to persuade

her to return home. They said that the next best thing was to allow her to marry. The couple wed on Oct. 11. The girl’s 38-year-old husband is still facing statutory rape charges. The case will be heard next month. He faces at least five years in prison if found guilty. Women’s rights activists said Wednesday they were researching whether the ruling is legal. the associated press

Abduction case aftershocks Roma. Negative reporting on minorities has re-emerged via recent cases: Council of Europe’s Commissioner for Human Rights A Roma woman in Bulgaria has undergone DNA testing and faces preliminary charges of child selling as authorities investigate if she is the mother of a young girl found living with an unrelated couple in Greece, authorities said Thursday. Though the tests have yet to prove Sasha Ruseva, 35, is the biological mother of the girl known as “Maria,” the woman’s admission that she once left a baby behind in Greece opened her up to a formal investigation. Ruseva acknowledged to Bulgarian TV that she had been questioned about the girl, believed to be five or six years old, who was found during a raid for drugs and weapons in a Roma camp

in central Greece last week. Ruseva said she gave birth to a girl while working as an olive picker in Greece. The child’s case gained global notice. Ruseva said she wanted the girl back if tests prove she is the girl’s mother. But she denied taking any money for giving up her baby to another Roma family years ago. The preliminary charges filed against her allow authorities to start an investigation into whether money changed hands for the child. Greek authorities took custody of “Maria” after a prosecutor present during the camp raid noticed the blond, blue-eyed and pale-skinned girl looked nothing like the couple raising her. A DNA test confirmed she was not related to them. Ruseva said she recognized the Greek Roma couple in the “Maria” case as the same people with whom she left her child.

Portugal. Madeleine McCann case reopened Portugal’s public broadcaster says prosecutors are reopening the police investigation into the disappearance of British child Madeleine McCann, after a review of evidence found new leads in the case. The public prosecutor decided to reopen the case after “new indications” emerged, though the prosecutor gave no details in a report seen on Radiotelevisao Portuguesa. The case was closed in 2008 because no crime was detected. The girl vanished during a family vacation in southern Portugal’s Algarve region in May 2007, just before her fourth birthday. A team of detectives from northern Portugal began reviewing the evidence two years ago. British police have also been sifting through the case files and have identified new avenues of investigation. the associated press

Anti-government ideology a growing concern Sovereign citizens? Libertarian-inspired philosophy said to pose threat to officers and public safety Training for frontline officers and better information sharing between police and government agencies can help protect

law enforcement officials from potentially aggressive “sovereign citizens,” says a newly declassified briefing to Canadian police chiefs. The presentation, prepared for a meeting of the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police, calls the libertarian-inspired philosophy “a growing concern” that poses a “threat to officer and public safety.” Enforcement agencies are

becoming increasingly wary of sovereign citizens, members of the Freeman-on-the-Land movement and other like-minded people who resist police and government authority. Adherents say they shun violence and merely want to live free of government-imposed shackles. However, police say those who espouse the ideology have been involved in numer-

ous violent encounters with law-enforcement and government employees in the United States and, to a lesser extent, in Canada. Freemen commonly claim they do not require a driver’s licence, insurance or vehicle registration, police say. And advocates frequently assert a right to have weapons for self-protection, among other things. the canadian press

The former University of California police officer who pepper-sprayed Occupy protesters has reached a worker’s compensation settlement with the university system.

Video of Pike pepper-spraying the protesters went viral online.

A British soccer fan has been jailed for 12 months for punching a police horse in the head after his team lost a derby match. Barry Rogerson was one of several fans arrested after violence erupted following Newcastle United’s 3-0 loss to Sunderland on April 14.

Spy charges threaten U.S. alliances Reaction from Europe. Leaders denounce Obama administration over eavesdropping allegations European leaders united in anger Thursday as they attended a summit overshadowed by reports of widespread U.S. spying on its allies — allegations German Chancellor Angela Merkel said had shattered trust in the Obama administration and undermined the crucial transAtlantic relationship. The latest revelations that the U.S. National Security Agency swept up more than 70 million phone records in France and may have tapped Merkel’s own cellphone brought de-

nunciations from the French and German governments. Merkel’s unusually stern remarks as she arrived at the European Union gathering indicated she wasn’t placated by a phone conversation she had Wednesday with President Barack Obama, or his personal assurances that the U.S. is not listening in on her calls now. Other leaders arriving for the 28-nation meeting echoed Merkel’s displeasure. Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt called it “completely unacceptable” for a country to eavesdrop on an allied leader. Echoing Merkel, Austria’s foreign minister, Micheal Spindelegger, said, “We need to re-establish with the U.S. a relationship of trust, which has certainly suffered from this.” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Russia. FBI investigates culture-exchange official Russia on Thursday angrily dismissed espionage accusations against a Russian cultural-exchange official in Washington, saying the U.S. claims were unfounded. The FBI is looking into whether Yury Zaytsev, the head of a Russian governmentrun cultural exchange program, tried to recruit young Americans as intelligence assets, a U.S. intelligence official told The Associated Press.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the probe was still underway. The magazine Mother Jones first reported the story. The Russian Foreign Ministry said it was “bewildered” by the reports and said the “fabrications they contained had nothing to do with the reality.” Zaytsev dismissed the accusations as an attempt to hurt ties between Moscow and Washington.

Honouring veterans For Metro

As Nov. 11 approaches, activity at the Chinese Benevolent Association (CBA) has kicked into high gear with Jun Ing volunteering at the helm. He is making sure the Remembrance Day service honouring Canada’s Chinese veterans comes off without a hitch. “The (Chinese) veterans volunteered to fight for a country for which they had no citizenship,” said Ing, adding that the Chinese volunteers for the Canadian military during the Second World War didn’t have the right to vote. Today, many young people aren’t aware of this important piece of history of the Chinese community in Vancouver, Ing said. That’s partly what this Remembrance Day service is for — to generate awareness. Ing came to Vancouver

from Hong Kong when he was 10 years old, and today works as a professional engineer. He first started volunteering for the CBA and other Vancouver-based Chinese cultural organizations in 1993, and quickly noticed a language and cultural disconnect between the people in the many local Chinese organizations and the mainstream. “I thought maybe I could help fill that gap a little bit,” said Ing, who volunteers upwards of 25 hours every week. A key skill Ing has contributed is his written and oral fluency in both English and Chinese, said Helen Wu, who has worked for more than 10 years alongside Ing at the CBA and other Chinese cultural organizations. Ing’s language skills have allowed him to operate seamlessly between cultures. “A lot of work depends on him,” she said.

“He acts as a bridge between the Chinese community and the mainstream,” added Wu, who describes Ing as a “jack of all trades” for his willingness and ability to take on any task that comes his way. She said that, along with the hours of paperwork and event co-ordination, Ing manages to teach four free Chinese martial arts classes at the CBA every week. Wu said she is especially impressed with Ing’s work on the Chinese New Year parade, which will be celebrating its 40th anniversary this spring. “When we’re hosting this event, it’s not just for the Chinese community,” said Ing, adding that a diverse array of cultural organizations participate in the Chinatown Chinese New Year parade. “I think this is important for us to share our culture ... this is what multiculturalism is all about.”

Jun Ing, with his wife Jackie, is a longtime volunteer in Vancouver. Contributed

The people have spoken. Vij’s Railway Express wins people’s choice award Toronto’s Bar Isabel has been named Canada’s best new restaurant for 2013 in an annual survey conducted by EnRoute magazine. Vij’s Railway Express, a mobile restaurant inspired by an Indian rail carriage with a menu that explores regional flavours and dishes of India, won the people’s choice award. The food truck, owned by cookbook author Vikram Vij and his wife Meeru Dhalwala, came out on top in an online poll decided by Canadians. It’s the 12th year for the

top 10 list and the first time EnRoute decided to publicize the short list of 35 restaurants opened between late spring 2012 and June 2013 that were nominated by a volunteer panel of food and hospitality industry leaders, and let Canadians vote for their favourite. “I love that the people’s choice award went to a food truck from one of this country’s great chefs,” Ilana Weitzman, editor-in-chief of Air Canada’s in-flight magazine, said in a statement.

Loblaw makes amends with compensation Damage control. After deadly factory collapse in Bangladesh, where Joe Fresh produced clothes, company pledges to help workers and families Grocery giant Loblaw Companies Ltd. says it will provide longterm financial assistance to the victims and families affected by a deadly factory collapse in Bangladesh in April. The company said Thursday the compensation will go to those who worked at the New Wave Style factory, which produced clothing for Loblaw’s Joe Fresh clothing line. The company will also pay three months in wages to workers until the longer-term funds kick in.

The New Wave Style factory was one of five manufacturing plants in the Dhaka plaza that collapsed, killing more than 1,100 workers on April 24. Loblaw did not disclose the total compensation amount. In addition, the company has joined with British clothing retailer Primark to provide financial assistance to workers of all retailers in the factory plaza. “Should the other brands not step forward and join in this funding, we will join Primark and immediately contribute to the payment of three months wages for the approximately 3,600 individuals involved, regardless of the brand apparel that was being produced in their workplace,” said Bob Chant, Loblaw’s senior vice-president of corporate affairs and communications.

Loblaw has previously donated $1 million to Save the Children Bangladesh and the Centre for Rehabilitation of the Paralysed, to help those in the country’s garment industry. This latest announcement marks the six-month anniversary of the deadly factory

collapse, which has been called the industry’s worst disaster. Following the accident, Loblaw signed a five-year pact to improve fire and building safety in Bangladesh. Several other big retailers have also signed the pact including Benetton, trendy Swedish fashion chain H&M, C&A of the Netherlands, British retailers Tesco and Primark, and Spain’s Inditex,

owner of Zara. The agreement requires that the companies conduct independent safety inspections, make their reports on factory conditions public and cover the costs for needed repairs. The companies that agreed to the pact join two other retailers that signed the contract last year: PVH and German retailer Tchibo. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Reel Guys


Less talk, more action The Counselor. Existential speeches bog down a promising dark crime drama Richard: Mark, The Counselor is the feel bad movie of the year. Bleak and hopeless, it’s a crime drama that examines the reasons and consequences of crime instead of focusing on the crime itself. It’s a stylish cautionary tale about the worst of human behaviour driven by greed, lust and hubris; a non-action, action movie where most of the fireworks are in McCarthy’s dialogue. Luckily actors like Bardem, Pitt and Fassbender are there to keep the fuse lit. What did you make of it?

Mark: I’m convinced there’s a decent movie embedded in this overstuffed, overwritten film. First, let’s take out all the portentous, existential speeches delivered by even the most tangential characters. Then, we could cut about two-thirds of Michael Fassbender’s pained reaction shots. He looks like he’s got indigestion after being force-fed the script. Oh, and get rid of the opening soft-core scene between him and Penélope Cruz. Then, there might be a grimly sardonic movie on the order of No Country for Old Men. But as it is, I could only enjoy it for the acting, the scenery, and Bardem’s collection of 80’s Versace shirts. RC: I liked it more than you, but only by one of Javier Bar-

dem’s crazy Brian Grazier hairs. Talky to the extreme, the entire movie is built around dialogue that sounds like it flowed from the hardest boiled crime writer out there, which I guess McCarthy is now that Elmore Leonard is working from his celestial typewriter. Catch phrases abound — “You don’t know someone until you know what they want,” for example — but it is wordy. Sometimes brilliantly so, but the pacing, particularly in the first hour, will be thought of as hypnotic by some, slow by others. My main disappointment was Diaz, who I didn’t think could deliver the dialogue. You?

line readings. But back to the script... the plot is revealed slowly, in layers, which will not be to everyone’s liking. You just know you are in the company of some very bad people; you’re just not sure why. This mysteriousness kept me interested for awhile; then I started counting the speaking parts and calculating the budget. Even at scale, it must have mounted up. And semifamous actors keep showing up for only one scene, never to be seen again, like Ruben Blades. And Richard, was that John Leguizamo in an uncredited scene?

MB: Diaz was OK because she looked the part and that got her through some clunky

MB: Fits right in with the movie’s aesthetic of more is more.

RC: Yes! It’s cameo city!


In Cormac ‘No Country for Old Men’ McCarthy’s screenwriting debut, The Counselor, he tells a gritty story of a greedy lawyer (Michael Fassbender) in over his head after dipping his toe in the narcotics trade with drug lord Reiner (Javier Bardem) and his sociopath girlfriend Malkina (Cameron Diaz). When the deal — smuggling 625 kilos of cocaine from Mexico to Chicago — goes south, the counselor finds his life swirling out of control. Spiraling around this grim vortex are womanizing middle-man Westray (Brad Pitt), prison inmate Ruth (Rosie Perez) and the counselor’s long-distance girlfriend Laura (Penélope Cruz).

For possibly the first year since the Academy expanded the big category to up to 10 nominations, it might actually be tough to pick just 10. But for us, it doesn’t matter what other films get nods since 12 Years a Slave has it in the bag already.

We’ve already seen some fantastic performances this year, with more on the way, but the stars are aligned for Matthew McConaughey following a string of great, risky performances over the past two years leading up to his amazing work in Dallas Buyers Club.

Sandra Bullock is an easy favourite for the nervewracking Gravity, but we’re hoping Academy voters have long enough memories to finally give Cate Blanchett her due for her work in Woody Allen’s latest.

• 12 Years a Slave — projected winner • Gravity • Dallas Buyers Club • Nebraska • Captain Phillips • Wolf of Wall Street • Inside Llewyn Davis • American Hustle • Secret Life of Walter Mitty

Best supporting actor Probably more crowded than any other category, we still can’t imagine any supporting actor performance leaving as much of an impression as Michael Fassbender’s electric, terrifying slave owner. Honourable mention to Jared Leto’s transformative work in Dallas Buyers Club. • Michael Fassbender, 12 Years a Slave — projected winner • Jared Leto, Dallas Buyers Club • Daniel Bruhl, Rush • Christian Bale, American Hustle • Tom Hanks, Saving Mr. Banks

• Sandra Bullock, Gravity • Cate Blanchett, Blue Jasmine — projected winner • Judi Dench, Philomena • Meryl Streep, August: Osage County • Kate Winslet, Labor Day

Best director

This is the category where the Academy generally feels comfortable rewarding newcomers, and we hope that continues with Lupita Nyong’o for her startling debut in 12 Years a Slave.

While we’d love a 12 Years a Slave sweep, Gravity was also an amazing filmgoing experience — and a four-year labour of love for Alfonso Cuaron. He should be rewarded for the achievement.

• Lupita Nyong’o, 12 Years a Slave — projected winner • Sarah Paulson, 12 Years a Slave • Jennifer Lawrence, American Hustle • Kristen Wiig, Secret Life of Walter Mitty • Julia Roberts, August: Osage County

••••• Robert Redford plays a sailor on a solo yacht trip on the Indian Ocean. When his boat collides with an abandoned shipping container he must use all his resources to survive. The actor is in every frame of this film and although he only speaks a dozen or so lines, manages to create a compelling persona of a man hell bent on survival against increasingly difficult odds. All is Lost is more audacious than it is entertaining, but it showcases Redford’s effortless star power. Alone and figuratively naked, he holds the screen for the entire 106 minutes. richard crouse

••••• It’s juvenile and tasteless but let’s not pretend the stunts the Jackass team cook up aren’t daring. In Bad Grandpa, Jackass mastermind Johnny Knoxville spins a narrative into the mix, playing a sex-obsessed octogenarian who teams up with his pre-pubescent grandson to pull provocative pranks on the unsuspecting public. Although the “story” ultimately suffers on behalf of the gags, Knoxville and young Jackson Nicoll are extraordinary, especially when they push buttons in a little miss princess pageant. steve gow WEEKEND, October 25-27, 2013



Escape from Tomorrow

Thanks for Sharing

Director. Randy Moore

Director. Stuart Blumberg

Stars. Roy Abramsohn, Elena Schuber

Stars. Mark Ruffalo, Gwyneth Paltrow



To say the least, Escape From Tomorrow is an adventurous film. Not only did filmmaker Randy Moore shoot at Disneyworld without permission but he adapted the footage into a surreal horror movie about a father having a trippy vacation that involves a seductive underage duo and being tormented by cheery mascots that turn demonic. While the premise holds promise, the story never oversteps its own ambition, partly because Moore’s skulking protagonist is as creepy as a satanic Donald Duck. steve gow

Making a playful comedy about sex addiction may not be a cinematic cakewalk, but with Thanks for Sharing, filmmaker Stuart Blumberg plays the multi-character dramedy a touch too light. Starring Mark Ruffalo, Gwyneth Paltrow and pop singer Pink (looking at home on the screen), the predictable premise revolves around addicts focused on forging ahead with new romances. While the story prematurely fizzles out of familiarity, the instinctive talents of the performances are sweepingly seductive. steve gow

Shaken, stirred and written down Picker, David Picker. The man who brought James Bond to the big screen reveals how he succeeded and how he failed in his new book matt PRIGGE

Metro World News in New York City

Film exec David V. Picker doesn’t have the flamboyance of a Robert Evans. But his track record is arguably even more staggering. As a producer, including a stint as president of United Artists in the ’60s and ’70s, he helped bring James Bond to the movies, as well as the Beatles and Woody Allen. His new book, Musts, Maybes and Nevers: A Book About the Movies, details his successes and occasional disasters over a lengthy career. This is a largely positive book, though you do call Robert Altman an unprintable word. Some of the people I dealt with I had enormous respect for and liked. Some of the people I had respect for and didn’t like. Some of the people I dealt with I neither respected nor liked. It’s the nature of the beast, but in the world of the arts, it’s probably even more — how should I say? — more colourful. Producer David V.

have good business sense, they understand that in order to get support for what they do, they have to deal with the financial reality. Some of them are very good and extremely caring, others — on both sides of the table — couldn’t care less. The cliché of the ’60s and ’70s was there was a greater creativity than there is now. I’m not sure that’s true. There was certainly great freedom, but I just saw two movies in the last few days that are fantastic, and they couldn’t be further apart in economic content. You go see Gravity and you go see Nebraska, and you see two fabulous movies that couldn’t be further apart in the economic risks involved and the potential gain involved. And yet both got made and are absolutely fabulous films. You mention not only great, beloved films you were


involved with, but also disasters. But some, like The Fugitive Kind and Electra Glide in Blue, have come around to some retroactive acclaim. Even Ishtar has a cult following now. Well, that doesn’t make it good. I don’t think Ishtar is a very good movie. The Fugitive Kind is a terrible picture. It just doesn’t work. That’s my opinion. Other people may think it’s a classic of some kind. They’re entitled to think that. ... The one thing about the arts is everybody comes away with their own opinions. Some people look at modern art and say it’s just junk. Other people look at it and think it’s fabulous and interesting. You stress how hard it is to predict success in the movie business. Even James Bond — a British series starring a then-unknown — was risky. Every movie’s a risk. I think making Dr. No for a million dollars wasn’t a giant risk. The difficulty was getting the rights. Initially Ian Fleming wasn’t going to sell them. Then he sold them to somebody who couldn’t get it made. Then it (came) to us. One of the partners had a deal with Columbia, but Columbia didn’t want to do it then. It’s hard to look back today and say, “What do you mean they didn’t want to do the first James Bond?” But they passed and I got it. There’s no accounting for how those decisions are made, and ... it’s water under the bridge.

Hailee Steinfeld. After an Oscar nom, True Grit actress has been choosing her roles wisely Ned Ehrbar

Metro World News in Hollywood

Since getting Hollywood’s attention — and an Oscar nomination — for True Grit in 2010, 16-year-old Hailee Steinfeld has kept some impressive momentum going. This fall, she debuted Can a Song Save Your Life at the Toronto International Film Festival before seeing Romeo and Juliet hit theatres. Now she co-stars in the longawaited film adaptation of the science-fiction novel Ender’s Game. It’s still early in your career, but you’re making some great choices. There’s really been no specific method in terms of picking roles or any of that. I find that everything that I’ve done has been so

Hailee Steinfeld, left, stars in Ender’s Game, which opens next Friday. contributed

different from the last, and I think that’s a reason why I love that and I’m attracted to certain roles. But it’s a

process that involves my agents and my parents, so there’s a lot of filtering before it gets to me. It comes down to just sort of loving the idea and loving the whole story and wanting to be a part of it. You’re also doing a lot of adaptations, which is becoming a common theme. Yes! Which again is not necessarily intentional but really helpful. I always find it interesting when some actors don’t read the book (something is based on) — which is starting to make more sense to me given the fact that you’re given a script to make a movie, and it may or may not have anything to do with the book. I remember when I shot True Grit, the fact that it was a book and had been done before was huge for me and it helped me so much. And then with Romeo and Juliet and Ender’s Game, it’s

just a couple hundred extra pages of knowledge. With Ender’s Game, some viewers seem to be looking for a love story between yours and Asa Butterfield’s characters where there isn’t one. Is that frustrating? Yeah, right? I know. I think in some ways it’s expected. But the beauty of the relationship is that there’s no pressure in terms of liking each other or any of that. They don’t have to fall in love to trust each other. There doesn’t have to be any of that. They have a really great friendship, which I think is really special. And again, they’re in Battle School. People aren’t secretly going out, there’s none of that happening. There’s no place to go, there’s nothing to do, you’re under strict rules and you’re away from your family so all you really want is a friend.

Bringing Dracula back to life in a new way Television. Creator of the new series, Cole Haddon, talks about re-imagining the Count and using a vampire to take on the one percenters

Ned Ehrbar

Metro World News in Hollywood

Screenwriter and comic-book scribe Cole Haddon makes his first foray into network television with Dracula, a re-imagining that pits Bram Stoker’s bloodsucker (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) against a super-rich Christian secret so-

ciety in 19th-century London. What’s the process for finding a new way to work with a familiar property? I think it always begins with the theme, which always seems to be something that’s frustrating me about the world at the moment. I don’t know if there’s any reason to really go back to these stories

unless you find ways to make them relevant to modern audiences. It’s finding that thing that matters to me today, then finding a way to create conflict in the world with that, really. You’re using a very particular evil that’s prevalent today. How did you land on that?


Dracula will air on NBC. contributed

One of the challenges with Dracula is that he’s a supernatural monster, and I do not have much faith myself. So wandering in the world of the supernatural isn’t terribly exciting. However, having a character born of some sort of supernatural damnation and pitting him against an organization that’s founded on fundamentalist principles, that have incredibly crazy ideas about spreading their religion across the globe via holy war seemed very fascinating to me. It’s the conflict between science and faith that exists in the world — at least in America — today. They’re not just fundamentalists, though. There’s also the oil barons and the one percenters represented. Well, the Order in this world is very much the forces of conservatism. It’s religion that has absorbed capitalism and made it part of its religion in order to oppress the masses. It also allows me to comment on my disdain for fossil fuels.

When you’re pitching this to a TV network, how much of that do you leave out? It’s astonishing, but to NBC’s credit, whenever I talked about it they asked for more. I never felt censored by NBC in this regard, and at the end of the day just by virtue of editing and development some references have been left out, but it is very apparent that the villains of this world are the fundamentalists, and they have very specific ideas for what the

More gore, please

“Every time I tried to censor myself, I was told I didn’t go far enough.” Cole Haddon, creator of the new Dracula series, on how network television will censor sexual content, but welcomes violence.

20th century should be, and I just happen to disagree with all of that. It has to be a tricky thing to pull off, making the audience side with a vampire. It was my initial hesitation. Because of the fact that he’s a villain in the novel through and through, there’s nothing to empathize with about him. He is a monster, so without a real motivation or a reason for audiences to connect to him, there was no reason to do it for me. That’s why we had to find an origin story that made him a character you could in fact empathize with. When you’re writing a horror-based show for network TV, what’s the selfcensorship level? Every time I tried to censor myself, I was told I didn’t go far enough. That’s the bizarre irony of network television, where we no longer can show the amount of skin that we did in 1994 when NYPD Blue was on the air, but if it comes to violence, the threshold is so much further down the line. So more often than not we got to do whatever we wanted in the gore factor.

Brian Wilson promising crafted tour performances Music. Beach Boys founder, who is on tour with Jeff Beck, says he’s gotten better over time Brian Wilson says that with time, he’s become a stronger performer. “It’s gotten better. We’ve had a little practice. ... The musicianship, the vocals have

Wilson, the 71-year-old singer/songwriter, even said he’s improved since the Beach Boys’ 50th anniversary tour last year. “It was a very sentimental experience, but the vocals are even better now.” But Wilson wouldn’t talk about the drama with Mike Love surrounding the band or

what the future of the group entailed. Wilson and Love, cousins and founding members of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band the Beach Boys, have been embroiled in a series of divisive lawsuits in the last while. The Associated Press

of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam, who has a higher profile, was reportedly to be paid only $125,000 before he dropped out. Expect Dornan to get that or less. Word is he’s Northern Irish. Does he have a sexy accent? A bit.

Wait, Jamie who? Dornan. Lindsay Lohan Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart. all images getty

Are Pattinson and Stewart hooking up on the DL? Maybe things aren’t so over between Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart after all. The Twilight co-stars, who officially split up five months ago, have reportedly been seeing each other on the sly, according to Life & Style magazine. “They’ve always had a passion

for each other, so even though the relationship didn’t work out, they still hook up when they’re in L.A.,” a source says. “Rob doesn’t see a future with Kristen at this point in time, but he likes to hook up with her. He’s made it clear that they are not exclusive.”

Lindsay Lohan’s behaviour over the past week has been raising eyebrows, leading skeptics to suspect the effects of her courtordered 90-day rehab stint may have worn off, but her dad, Michael Lohan, insists all is well. “I’ve seen and speak to Lindsay constantly, and every time I do she is clear of mind, and by no means do I have any suspicion of her relapsing in any way,” he tells Radar Online. “Maybe she goes out at night, but who doesn’t? She’s up in the morning and she’s doing the right thing.”

Oh, from Game of Thrones? No, from Once Upon a Time, that TV series with fairy tale characters. He played the Hunstman in the Enchanted Forest and Sheriff Graham in Storybrooke, the show’s alternative universe. Where else have I seen him? Possibly Marie Antoinette, if you were one of the six people who saw that. Or from magazine ads. He was a Calvin Klein model and the face (and body) of Dior Homme.

Peter Rockwell @therealwineguy

who appreciate fine wine. What gives beer the edge when it comes to the “cool factor” is that consumer attitude regarding adding flavour elements to beer is much more open minded than those of their counterparts in the wine world. That gives breweries carte blanche to add inspiration to

their autumn ales, with many focusing on October’s official gourd — the pumpkin. The output of most small, regional breweries is sold close to home, so visit them, or hit your local retailer, to see what’s being brewed in your own backyard. Montreal’s McAuslan Brewing’s St-Ambroise Citrouille

The Great Pumpkin Ale (4 by 341 ml, $9.95 - $10.95) is available across the country. Infused with cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, clove and, of course, pumpkin, it balances its vegetal expression with an undercurrent of subtle spice. PRICES REFLECT THE RANGE ACROSS THE COUNTRY. SOME PRODUCTS MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE IN ALL PROVINCES.

We all scream for scary treats By the time you’ve carved an army of pumpkins, costumed your pint-sized ghouls and purchased bushels of candy, time for cooking up spooky grub may be in short supply. These treats don’t require much time or energy so you can still do the Monster Mash. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS/HALLOWEEN SPOOKTACULAR BY MATTHEW MEAD

Goblet Grave

Vampire Doughnuts

Head to craft store and pick up a silicone skull and crossbones ice cube tray. Fill each cavity with plain Greek yogurt, then use offset spatula to smooth the tops and remove any excess yogurt from the tray. Freeze until solid (overnight is best).Let the cubes soften at room temperature for several minutes, then remove the ice cubes from the tray. Arrange cubes in a small bowl set over a larger bowl of crushed ice. Serve alongside goblets of grape juice.

Arrange a stack of honeyglazed doughnuts on a large serving tray. Use bamboo skewer to poke two fang holes in top of each, then dribble red gel food colouring coming out of the holes and down the sides of the doughnuts.

Candied Apple Craniums

Doughnut Spider

Wash and dry 6 apples. Insert large candy stick. Set aside. Place 12 ounces of white candy melts in heat-safe bowl. Set bowl over saucepan of simmering water. Stir until the candy has melted. Dunk each apple into candy melts, spooning up sides and over the top for an even coating. Set coated apples upright on waxed paper. Use a rolling pin to roll out Tootsie Rolls until flat. Use a paring knife to cut round eyes and a heart-shaped nose from the flattened

Set a chocolate glazed doughnut in centre of large serving platter. Place chocolate cake doughnut against it. Glazed doughnut forms spider’s body; the cake doughnut is the head. Place 2 chocolate doughnut holes on top of cake doughnut to form eyes (use a dab of frosting to hold them in place). Top each doughnut hole with dab of white frosting, then gently press a chocolate chip into each. For legs, arrange three sets of three chocolate doughnut holes coming off

Tootsie Rolls. “Glue” the eyes and nose (mount the “heart” upside down) to the apples using piping gel or a bit of purchased frosting.


For winemakers, fall is all

about harvesting. Brewers, meanwhile, turn to the creation of limited edition craft ales — many of which take their names and flavour cues from the season. Local brews are hotter than Hades, with their fans applying a reverence for their stylistic differences that’s arguably surpassed only by those

of each side of the “body” doughnut.

Schneider again falls short vs. Canucks NHL. Vancouver records second straight road win after regulation CAM TUCKER

On Thursday





Cory Schneider can’t beat his former team. And the New Jersey Devils are having trouble beating any team. Mike Santorelli scored the only goal in the shootout, and the Vancouver Canucks edged the Devils 3-2 on Thursday night.

In a matchup of former teammates, Roberto Luongo got the best of Schneider — who used to be his backup in Vancouver. Luongo turned aside Travis Zajac, Adam Henrique and Patrik Elias in the tiebreaker to make Santor-

elli’s goal stand up. It was New Jersey’s second loss to Vancouver this season, and Schneider, acquired in a draft-day trade over the summer, played in both of them. The Devils are just 1-5-4 overall, and the only things keeping them out of last place in the newly formed Metropolitan Division are the similar slow starts by the New York Rangers and Philadelphia Flyers. “Not a very good one by me,” Schneider said. “Just two real bad goals that cost a point. We should’ve never went to a shootout. No disrespect to

Vancouver, I thought I kind of gave them two goals there. (Luongo) made some big saves in the third, they hung around and won the shootout. “So, it’s my fault we lost the point tonight.” Luongo made 28 saves before the shootout. Schneider stopped 19. Ryan Kesler and Daniel Sedin scored in regulation for Vancouver. Patrik Elias and Eric Gelinas tallied for New Jersey. The goal was Gelinas’s first in the NHL. He was called up from Albany of the AHL on Wednesday.

Esks quarterback isn’t changing his style

Thursday wasn’t the first time in his football career Mike Reilly spent time talking to the media about the hard-hitting nature of the game. Truth about Reilly is he loves the physical element. Even if he’s been on the receiving end of numerous hits, some clean and some illegal, this season. “I understand that hits are a part of the game and I’ll be the first one to say … that’s one of the things I love about the game,” the affable Eskimos quarterback said Thursday. The Eskimos are in Vancou-

ver to play the B.C. Lions on Friday night. Reilly, once a backup with the Lions, has now become the face of the Eskimos franchise, which has endured its share of hardships in the wake of the Ricky Ray trade to the Toronto Argonauts. In his first year as a starter, Reilly sits third amongst CFL quarterbacks with 3,836 passing yards, to go along with 22 touchdowns and 16 interceptions. However, it’s been commonplace to see Reilly pick himself

off the turf after absorbing one hellacious hit after another. “I need to improve a lot of parts of my game, but in terms of changing the style, not at all, it hasn’t crossed my mind,” Reilly explained. The Eskimos, even with so much riding on Reilly in the longer term, share his stance, and are just as adamant about it. “Mike plays the game the way the game is supposed to be played,” said Edmonton’s head coach Kavis Reed.

Carlyle Mitchell was supposed to spend the soccer season in Edmonton. A Vancouver Whitecaps player award? Forget it. Heck, so much as seeing the pitch during the 2013 Major League Soccer season once seemed impossible. Yet on Wednesday morning, Mitchell, the 26-year-old centre back, was accepting the Whitecaps’ Jock MacDonald Unsung Hero Award. Behind Andy O’Brien, Jay DeMerit, Johnny Leveron and Brad Rusin, Mitchell wasn’t going to see much, if any, playing time with the first club. That paved the way for his loan to FC Edmonton in the NASL. But injuries on the back line, beginning with DeMerit and then eventually claiming O’Brien and Rusin, meant Mitchell was recalled back to Vancouver and inserted into the lineup out of pure necessity. “Guys have injuries, you know, so when you’re called you’ve got to be ready,” said Mitchell. Blessed with raw athletic talent, Mitchell’s game was not free of mistakes, which were magnified at times because the Whitecaps, as an entire club, struggled to defend. But largely, the Whitecaps were able to tap into some of Mitchell’s potential. His unsung hero recognition acknowledged the contributions of a player who was asked to shoulder so much more than was expected of him when the season began. “As far as Carlyle is concerned, a just reward that he’s received,” said Whitecaps president Bob Lenarduzzi.

Raptors extend contracts of Ross, Valanciunas The Toronto Raptors have exercised the third-year team options on the entrylevel contracts of centre Jonas Valanciunas and guard Terrence Ross, extending the deals through the 2014-15 season. The Raptors had until next Thursday to exercise their option on both players. The seven-foot, 257-pound Valanciunas joined the Raptors after being selected fifth overall in the 2011 NBA draft and spending the 2011-12 season playing overseas. He was named to the

2012-13 NBA all-rookie second team after finishing the year ranked third among rookies in rebounds (6.0), blocks (1.26) and field-goal percentage (.557). Valanciunas also ranked seventh among rookies averaging 8.9 points in 23.9 minutes. A native of Utena, Lithuania, Valanciunas became the fifth rookie in franchise history to start on opening night. Ross, a six-foot-seven, 197-pound forward, was selected eighth overall in the 2012 draft. Last season he posted averages of 6.4 points, 2.0 rebounds and 17.0 minutes in 73 games. He shot .332 (65-196) from beyond the arc and finished fifth among rookies in made three-pointers. the canadian press

save. John Lackey took the loss. Game 3 is Saturday night at Busch Stadium. Jake Peavy is set to start for Boston against Joe Kelly. Wacha had already extended his scoreless streak to 18 2/3 innings —- a record for a rookie in a single post-season — before Ortiz tagged him in the sixth. A day after Ortiz homered after nearly hitting a grand slam earlier in an 8-1 romp, Big Papi connected for his fifth home run of this post-season and 17th of his career. Dustin Pedroia drew a oneout walk and, with the Fenway Park crowd on its feet, Ortiz hit a full-count changeup over the wall in left-centre-field. Lackey worked around four hits in slowing the Cardinals. He pitched a day after turning 35 — it was his first Series start since 2002 when, as a rookie for the Angels, he beat Barry Bonds and San Francisco in Game 7.

Canada’s Vasek Pospisil reached his third quarterfinal of the season as he knocked out big-serving Croat Ivo Karlovic 6-3, 6-4 Thursday at the Swiss Indoors tennis tournament. Pospisil, whose seasonending goal is to improve his ATP Tour ranking enough to qualify for one of the 32 seedings at January’s Australian Open, dominated Karlovic in 59 minutes. The world No. 40 never faced a break point, while striking five key aces. “I played really well today and did a lot of things well,” Pospisil said. “I’m thrilled … over how it went.” the canadian press
