Day 3: Getting Bittersweet that e-target victory for off your back food trucks

When someone created a website featuring Facebook photos of female students at Newmarket’s Sacred Heart high school, asking people to vote on whether they’d like to have sex with them, the girls fought back. They spoke up. They went down to the office and told their school principal. They told their parents. They contacted the police. Then they created posters about equality and women’s rights and put them up in the hallways. And they’re planning to keep the issue alive through more action — possibly a flash mob — next week. “It was really degrading. It’s cyberbullying and it’s not fair to anyone to have their photo taken from Facebook and used in that manner,” said Grade 12 student Maria Brisbane, who wasn’t initially targeted by the website but was added Wednesday after speaking out publicly. Last Friday, several students complained to the school, said Brisbane, “and the principals did every-

School superintendent Ron Crocco said the York Catholic board takes the incident “very seriously” and that if caught, the students behind the website could face suspension or expulsion. Teens were also reminded to increase privacy levels on their Facebook accounts so photos can’t be easily obtained.

Forty-second call may hold answers to Rob Ford case

It is a 40-second phone call whose contents could answer the biggest question of the crack cocaine video scandal: Did Mayor Rob Ford ask friend Alexander (Sandro) Lisi to retrieve the cellphone containing the embarrassing video? The call was made at 8:18 p.m. on Thursday, May 16 last Quoted

“You’re f—ing dead and everyone on your block is dead.” Threats allegedly made by Alexander Lisi

year, just as news of the video’s existence was breaking, according to police documents filed in court. What was said is a mystery, as neither Ford nor Lisi’s phone was subject to a wiretap, and neither man will talk to police. What immediately followed that call, according to a series of wiretaps released by a judge Thursday, were serious threats by Lisi to people whose phones were tapped, and discussions among several people of threats allegedly made by Lisi. According to calls police did intercept, the hours that followed that Ford-Lisi call were filled with threats by Lisi that unless the crack video was turned over, “you’re f---ing dead and everyone on your block is dead,” according to one man’s account of Lisi’s threat. At no time in the wiretaps does Lisi say anybody told him to retrieve the video. Over the next two days, Lisi spoke to several people connected to the crack video. To one, Lisi said: “Tell all his boys that it’s going to get worse and

worse, all summer, until that phone gets back and that the whole place is going to get lit up,” according to documents released by the judge. Toronto police have charged Lisi with extortion over alleged attempts to retrieve the video. Detectives are continuing to

investigate to learn whether others were involved. The Ontario Provincial Police, which was tasked with overseeing the Toronto detectives, have taken a back seat on the probe and will only assist if new information is provided to them by the Toronto police.

Food trucks a go — with conditions Toronto’s food truck era has begun — though not in the way food-truck operators wanted. In a landmark deregulation decision, city council voted Thursday to allow mobile food vendors to roam the streets and set up shop in surface parking lots and on-street parking spaces. However, council also approved a host of new regulations, partly in an attempt to satisfy the concerns of the influ-

ential restaurant industry and local Business Improvement Areas. “I think the restaurant industry was very successful at instilling fear in city councillors,” said Zane Caplansky, who owns Caplansky’s Delicatessen but also a food truck. “I think what they’ve given us, though, is a glimmer of hope to be able to show what we can do, to dispel those fears over time.” Food trucks will be pro-

hibited from stationing themselves less than 50 metres from any restaurant — which means much of downtown will be off limits. A maximum of two trucks will be allowed to operate on any block at once, for a maximum of three hours a day each; council’s licensing committee had recommended no limits on the number per block, and a maximum of five hours a day. TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Annual fee

Truck operators will pay a $5,067 annual fee, more than operators in other cities where trucks are popular. Business Improvement Areas and local councillors will be allowed to ask the city to create “restricted” zones where trucks are not allowed.

Thursday, while Ford was giving an impromptu press conference celebrating that he had been “cleared” in the Project Brazen 2 probe into alleged wrongdoing on his behalf, a Toronto judge ordered the release of wiretap information related to the case. TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Council OK’s $10M for BMO Field expansion Funding. Mayor among the few to vote against deal with MLSE Toronto will invest $10 million in expanding city-owned BMO Field after council voted 39-3 Thursday in favour of the deal. Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment, the city’s tenant

in the facility where Toronto FC plays, will put at least $90 million toward the $120-million expansion. Voting against the deal were Mayor Rob Ford and councillors Doug Ford and Mike Del Grande. “We’re very grateful for the leadership and support of the city,” said MLSE president Tim Leiweke. “This is an important issue, not just for Toronto

FC, but also the CFL, the Pan Am Games, our ability to host Winter Classics, Grey Cups, and the proposed 2026 World Cup bid for Canada.” The CFL’s Toronto Argonauts are looking for a new home, and the BMO Field project includes lengthening the field for football. Argos executive chair and CEO Chris Rudge said he was pleased by the near-unani-

mous vote and said the football team expects to be talking at length with MLSE about the plan. “It provides a perfect-sized stadium for us, and with covered stands to keep people out of the inclement weather,” Rudge said. Leiweke said MLSE will now work to obtain $10 million each from senior governments. torstar news service

Toronto council voted to give Mayor Rob Ford a second chance Thursday to vote on two motions he’d rejected Wednesday: One in support of dedicating a section of a major street to Nelson Mandela, the other to congratulate Canada’s Olympians. “I just want to thank all the councillors for their support,” Ford said afterward. Ford was the lone member of council to vote against a motion to honour Mandela with a street naming. As well, he voted against a symbolic motion to congratulate Olympic athletes. At the end of the meeting, Ford told reporters he had asked for the Mandela re-vote “immediately” after the vote. On Thursday, speaker Frances Nunziata told the chamber

Ford did “come up and mention to me that he voted incorrectly.” But the re-votes — both motions passed unanimously Thursday — did not defuse the controversy. Coun. Adam Vaughan said the re-vote should not have been allowed and Ford only changed his position to “save face” after he was subjected to “international ridicule.” “Once again, when Rob Ford makes a mistake, his first response is to lie and play the victim, and quite frankly all of us have had enough of that,” Vaughan told reporters. “It’s appalling that someone in his position would not understand how to honour someone like Nelson Mandela.” torstar news service

An Ontario judge was wrong to dismiss a defamation lawsuit against Rob Ford, a restaurant owner is arguing as he takes the case to the province’s highest court. George Foulidis sued Ford over comments he made to a newspaper — when he was a city councillor — suggesting an untendered, 20-year leasing deal between Foulidis’s company, Tuggs Inc., and the city was corrupt and that it “stinks to high heaven.” A judge dismissed the lawsuit in December 2012, ruling that Foulidis did not prove the comments were directed at him or that they were defamatory. Foulidis is asking for the Appeal Court to reverse the lower court’s decision, rather than order a new trial, and

Ford looks to 905ers for financial support, again Rob Ford will hold what appears to be his first major re-election fundraiser in Concord, a suburban industrial community north of Toronto, in the City of Vaughan. Details of the event, to be held May 8 at the Riviera Parque Banquet and Convention Centre, were included in a letter soliciting campaign donations and mailed to people who gave money to candidates in the 2010 municipal election. “Help Rob Ford STOP the GRAVY TRAIN from returning

to Toronto City Hall,” reads the letter, signed by Ford’s brother and campaign manager, Doug Ford. Social geographer Trevor McKenzie-Smith’s work can shed some light on why the Fords might hold a fundraiser outside city boundaries. McKenzie-Smith analyzed donations to Ford’s 2010 campaign and found many contributors weren’t eligible to vote for him because they lived in neighbouring municipalities. “Over $623,000 flowed in

from the GTA, accounting for 33.5% of money raised. Turns out that one out of every three dollars donated to the Ford campaign in 2010 came from outside Toronto,” the PressProgress website, a project of the non-profit Ottawabased Broadbent Institute, reported last November. In the past, the Fords have also blitzed 905 households with robocalls inviting residents to their annual Ford Fests, community barbecues that are free. torstar news service

For more than 12 years, Donny and Sue Lee’s Roxborough Smoke & Treats has been a midtown community hub. People stop by for smokes or chips or simply a friendly chat. But the Lees are now faced with closing their store, which is just north of the Rosedale subway station, because the rent is going up — way up. The tax assessment on the Yonge Street property increased by

more than 350 per cent, forcing their landlord to raise the rent. “I can’t afford to pay more,” said Donny. “Now I only have one choice: I have to go out. The only question is when.” The Lees received a letter from their landlord last month explaining that the plaza on the corner of Yonge and Roxborough had been re-evaluated last year at $16,188,000, from its previous assessment of just

$3,577,000. The Lees’ rent was hiked by $600, to more than $3,300 per month, and they were asked to

pay more than $5,000 in additional rent for last year to cover their share of the 2013 tax increase. TORSTAR news service

TTC APPLIES BEST PRACTICES, SHARES INFO WITH OTHER GLOBAL LEADERS A ANDY BYFORD CEO TORONTO TRANSIT COMMISSION

ll successful companies seek out best practices from around the world, as well as from other industries. Being open to new ideas is an enabler to continuous improvement. Transit is no different. The TTC actively participates in a number of national and international forums, each designed to share knowledge and to promote excellence in the provision of customer service. One such forum is the Nova Group of metros (subway systems) of which I am currently the Chair. Nova is made up of 16 metros from around the world, each of which shares operational and

performance data, enabling learning from others’ experiences in an effort to identify areas where each can improve. The TTC is also a member of the American Public Transportation Association. Closer to home, the TTC is a major player in the Canadian Urban Transit Association, a body that represents transit properties across the country and that helps members lobby stakeholders to fund and prioritize public transit. It’s also invaluable to learn from other industries. With that in mind, the TTC has recently broadened its reach when recruiting to key management positions. Of the six Group Station Managers re-

Due to the closure of Front St. for construction, shuttle buses will not service Union Station. Instead, buses will operate between Rosedale and King stations on Yonge St., diverting via King St. and Wellington St. to St Andrew Station. Customer service staff will be on hand to offer assistance, with Wheel-Trans buses available to accommodate seniors and persons with disabilities who use wheelchairs, scooters and other mobility aids. Additionally, Union Station will be completely closed for work associated with the Second Platform and Concourse Improvements Project. To access the PATH, proceed through Royal Bank Plaza on Front St. Customers heading to see the Toronto Blue Jays this weekend can take the subway southbound from St George Station and exit at St Andrew, the 6 Bay bus from Bay Station, or the 510 Spadina Streetcar for a short walk to the Rogers Centre.

The Group Station Manager role is a good example of a concept imported from elsewhere. In fact, it’s based on the job that I held in the London Underground in the mid1990s. The TTC also has much to share with other organizations and has a deep well of internal talent. But a key tenet of our modernization program is to be more receptive to new ideas and to introduce and adopt both innovative and proven ways of delivering our service.

And if so, what to do. Hackers and privacy thieves may sometimes come to us in ways we don’t expect; here are a few examples that might surprise you SEAN MCKIBBON Metro in Ottawa

After taking the normal precautions to protect our privacy and digital belongings — measures such as making strong passwords, using firewalls and anti-virus software, keeping computers and other equipment updated and using a VPN at public WiFi sites — people have to weigh how much further they have to go to stay safe.

While an individual of modest means might be less likely to be a target for hackers, their employers might be, says Wright. “Sometimes hackers use people as stepping stones,” he says. Important intellectual property or fat lines of credit can be very attractive targets for hackers.

who is going to have the easiest time of things is the person inside your company,” says computer security researcher Leigh Honeywell. “People call it the insider threat. “And that’s where having good hiring practices, having good internal security, paying attention that you are hiring good people — that’s what makes the difference there.” She adds that companies should also have layers of checks and balances in place so that if someone does go rogue they can be detected and stopped. But

voluntary policy where they commit to informing their users of breaches. Websites sometimes change their privacy policies. Even those run by people with the best of intentions sometimes get hacked. And there’s the weak link in the whole equation — people. “If you post too much info on FB and don’t have your privacy set properly — you can go on Facebook and find lots of people who have not put in any privacy restrictions on their information and that makes it really easy for people to target them.”

Spies like us? If you lose your phone, are people reading your financial statements? Most people want to keep their private affairs private and don’t want to be hacked, but how they feel about the privacy of others is a whole different thing. Security researcher Scott Wright, who runs a study called the Honey Stick Project, has some bad news. “People love to look at other people’s employment and salary information,” says Wright, who runs experiments in which he will drop unlocked USB keys and smartphones with fake files labeled things like “HR salaries,”

“concert tickets” or “passwords,” in different cities in Canada and the U.S. and then monitors what people do with them. “It’s not all that encouraging,” he says. “For USB drives, about 65 per cent of the time people will open them, plug them into their computer, double click on files, which could infect their computers.” For the phones, he says 80 per cent of the time people will go through the contents to see what’s on them. “And it’s not just to find contact information,” he says. Do the phones come back? “About 50 per cent of the time they will get returned.” SEAN MCKIBBON/METRO IN OTTAWA

A: Canadians face a growing number of threats … they may be tracked without their knowledge; they are vulnerable to hackers and fraudsters; and they may be surprised to find information they posted online used in ways they had not anticipated. When Canadians were asked about the privacy risks that most concerned them, computer privacy and Internet security were second only to concerns related to security of financial information. We have seen a growing number of investigations under the Personal Information and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) involve online issues. We recently completed an investigation on how Google’s online advertising service used sensitive information about individuals’ online activities to target them with health-related advertisements. Not only was this contrary to Canadian privacy law … it was also contrary to Google’s own privacy policy ... We were pleased Google agreed to implement our recommendations. In our last annual report on the Privacy Act, we raised concerns with respect to two government departments collecting personal information posted by an activist on her personal Facebook page. We recommended that the departments not access this type of personal information from social media sites unless they

Experts can’t tell when hard drives accessed, OPP says Gas plant cancellation. Lack of exact dates leaves possibility that Wynne oversaw the destruction of documents, PCs say Computer experts cannot determine when 20 of 24 computer hard drives in the Ontario premier’s office were accessed with a special password which could have allowed files to be erased, an OPP detective told a legislative committee Thursday. Police seized 24 hard drives removed from the premier’s office as part of their investigation into the destruction of

documents related to the Liberal government’s cancellation of two gas plants at a cost of up to $1.1 billion. But asked when they were accessed, Det. Const. Andre Duval of the OPP’s antirackets branch said they have not been able to determine that information for 20 of them. “They were able to determine for four work station hard drives the dates and times, so four out of the 24,” Duval told the justice committee Thursday. The dates are key to a Progressive Conservative accusation that Premier Kathleen Wynne could have overseen the destruction of gas plant documents, an accusation she denies. The OPP request for a search warrant said the password, allegedly provided to an outside

tech expert by former premier Dalton McGuinty’s chief of staff, was active from Feb. 6 to March 20, 2013, and Wynne was officially sworn-in as premier Feb 11. The Conservatives said Wynne cannot claim computer tampering was all done on McGuinty’s watch when investigators still can’t determine when 20 of the hard drives were accessed. “We did learn today that it is possible that those computers were accessed up until March 20, six weeks into her mandate,” said PC energy critic Lisa MacLeod. Wynne told reporters the detective testified that the investigation is focused only on McGuinty’s former chief of staff, David Livingston. the canadian press

The agency denied exacting any revenge, saying instead that those separated from the general population had been generating complaints by intimidating others to join the strike.

Marois pulls tax cut out Quebec election. PQ leader promises voters that, if elected, they’ll get some financial relief once the province’s budget gets balanced With just days left in the Quebec election campaign and her Parti Québécois apparently struggling in opinion polls, Pauline Marois came out with a surprising promise on Thursday: future income-tax cuts. The goodies would kick in only after the province balances its budget, which the PQ has said will occur in 2015-16. In an exchange with Michel Leblanc, head of the Montreal Board of Trade, Marois said a reelected PQ government would cut business taxes. She then told reporters later the promise would also extend to individual taxpayers. Asked why she waited until Day 30 of the campaign to mention the commitment, Marois replied, “Not a lot of people asked me (about tax cuts).”

“The board of trade asked me the question.” Marois was short on details about the cuts, which she surely hopes will help the PQ regain some momentum before Monday’s vote. “The middle class is heavily taxed,” she said. “We know that, and we want to alleviate some of that burden.” In a campaign dominated by talk of corruption, integrity and the secular charter, there had been no inkling of any taxrelief announcements since the election being called March 5. The surprise announcement was brushed off by both of her main rivals. Coalition Leader François Legault called it improvisation and a desperate move. The perceived front-runner, Liberal Leader Philippe Couillard, dismissed her pledge as a political play. “The last time I heard Madame Marois talk about taxes was when she scared everyone with retroactive tax hikes after they formed a government,” Couillard told a gathering in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, south of Montreal. “Is there anyone here who

Ousted Ukrainian president accused of using snipers, thugs to squash opposition Ukraine’s interim authorities accused the country’s ousted president of ordering snipers to open fire on protesters and getting help from Russian security agents to battle his own people — but their report Thursday provided no evidence directly linking him to the bloodbath in Kyiv. Acting Interior Minister

Arsen Avakov also charged that his predecessor employed gangs of killers, kidnappers and thugs to terrorize and undermine the opposition during Ukraine’s tumultuous winter of discontent. The preliminary findings revealed by Kyiv’s new leadership examined the months

of anti-government protests that culminated in the deaths in February of over 100 people in Kyiv, mostly protesters. That violence forced a truce between the opposition and the government, but the arrangement quickly collapsed and President Viktor Yanukovych fled to Russia.

Couillard accused Marois of taking the low road on the campaign trail and said voters are starting to tune out because of the barbs. Couillard took his main rival to task over comments she made Wednesday about him and accused fraudster Arthur Porter. Through an intermediary, Porter voiced his support for the Liberal leader from a Panamanian jail cell where he is awaiting a decision on extradition to Canada on fraud charges. In a brief interview posted online, Porter said he still considers Couillard a friend. Asked about Porter’s comments, Marois described the two men as “birds of a feather.” the canadian press

The response from the crowd was a collective “no.” While the PQ has promised a balanced budget in 20152016, Quebec’s interim auditor general said recently the government was being very optimistic if it thought it could achieve it within a few years. The PQ campaigned in 2012 on a promise to balance the budget in 2013-2014, the fiscal year which ended just a few days ago, on March 31. It eventually put off the objective after saying government revenues were way lower than anticipated.

It’s been a year since Rehtaeh died on April 7 after attempting to take her own life, which her mother says was due to months of bullying after a photo of her alleged rape was spread around school. A walk in her memory is

Parsons said the important thing is she brought up issues “that needed to be talked about.”

Deep hidden ocean located on Saturn moon Enceladus. Saturn’s little moon is probably not the only one with a subsurface sea; Saturn’s Titan moon may have an ocean Scientists have uncovered a vast ocean beneath the icy surface of Saturn’s little moon Enceladus. Italian and American researchers made the discovery using Cassini, a NASA-European spacecraft still exploring Saturn and its rings 17 years after its launch from Cape Canaveral. Their findings were announced Thursday. This new ocean of liquid water — as big as or even bigger than North America’s Lake Superior — is centred at

if the ocean extends to the north pole, said the lead researcher, Luciano Iess of Sapienza University of Rome. At the very least, it’s a regional sea some 40 kilometres deep under milesthick ice. On Earth, it would stretch at least from our South Pole up to New Zealand. Cassini’s rudimentary instruments cannot determine whether the moon’s ocean harbours any form of life. Another mission using more sophisticated instruments is needed for that. This latest discovery makes the interior of Enceladus “a very attractive potential place to look for life,” said Cornell University planetary scientist Jonathan Lunine. Cassini is to make three more fly-bys of Enceladus before 2017. THe associated press

U.S. officials create ‘Cuban Twitter’ to foster dissent

Lincoln. Lost lobster dies far from home

ZunZuneo. The popular social network was a USAID project in Cuba The U.S. government masterminded the creation of a “Cuban Twitter” — a communications network designed to undermine the communist government in Cuba, built with secret shell companies and financed through foreign banks, The Associated Press has learned. Project “ZunZuneo” lasted more than two years and drew 40,000-plus subscribers. First, the network would build a Cuban audience, mostly young people; then, the plan was to push them to dissent. It’s unclear whether the scheme was legal under U.S. law. Rajiv Shah, administrator for the

The Lincoln County Humane Society in St. Catharines sent out a tweet Thursday saying a lobster found abandoned in a box in a restaurant parking lot has died. The crustacean — dubbed Mickey the Lobster — was discovered Wednesday in a parking lot. The humane society’s executive director Kevin Strooband had said the investigation was ongoing, but suspected that the lobster was left there as a prank on April Fools’ Day. The animal shelter had been making plans to send the lobster back to the Maritimes where it probably came from. But now those hopes are dashed, although the humane society said on Twitter that it had received three offers to get Mickey home. Strooband said an investigation into how the lobster ended up in a box in the parking lot was ongoing. The Canadian Press

FireChat ignites off-the-grid convos Humans made fire... Now we’ve made a messaging app via wireless mesh networking so users can connect sans Internet A new mobile messaging application called FireChat is empowering nearby smartphone users to stay in touch even when there’s no cellular service or Internet connection. In just two weeks since its release on the iPhone, FireChat already has provided a flicker of hope for people pining for more effective, secure and affordable ways to communicate. That’s because the free messaging app harnesses a technology called wireless mesh networking, which might someday allow a myriad of devices to connect like links in a chain. The technique might some-

Hitching a ride

FireChat’s iPhone app piggybacks on an often overlooked feature called the Multipeer Connectivity Framework that Apple Inc. included in its latest mobile operating system, iOS 7, released last September. Apple says more than 80 per cent of people using its mobile devices rely on iOS 7.

day be used to tie together thousands of devices with built-in radios and make it possible to be online without having to pay for the access. It could also enable online communications in remote areas or disaster zones without Wi-Fi or cellular signals. Furthermore, the conversations in these so-called “offthe-grid” networks can’t be easily hacked into by spies and mischief makers or shut down by governments trying to stifle

free speech. “We are trying to create networks built by the people for the people,” said Micha Benoliel, CEO of Open Garden, maker of the FireChat app. Open Garden, a San Francisco startup with just 10 employees, is taking another step toward its ambitious goal with Thursday’s release of a FireChat app for Android phones. FireChat could be an even hotter commodity on Android given the demographic differences between that platform’s user base and the typical iPhone owner. The app already has been installed on more than a million iOS devices. Many smartphones running on Google Inc.’s free Android software are cheaper than Apple Inc.’s iPhone. That has made Android phones the top-selling mobile devices in less affluent countries, including in regions where Internet access is inadequate or expensive. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Nightmare Before Christmas does Game of Thrones COURTESY SOL NEELMAN

World of weird sports chronicled Ostrich racing in Nevada, lightsaber fencing in San Francisco and fire obstacle running in Wolverhampton, U.K., are some of the bizarre sports Sol Neelman has documented over the years. The photographer’s latest pictures feature in his second volume Weird Sports 2, which is currently fundraising on Kickstarter. METRO

Q and A

Epiphany led to niche photography SOL NEELMAN

Photographer based in Portland, Ore.

How did you get into weird sports photography? About ten years ago, a friend asked me, what

do I love? “Travel, sport, photography and weird s--t,” I replied. So I started researching about wild sporting events and sort of had an epiphany: I found fun things to photograph. So I quit my job at local newspaper The Oregonian and started travelling the world chronicling strange sports — 200 of them in nine years.

ANDREW FIFIELD metronews.ca

You may have heard that a little show called Game of Thrones is returning on Sunday, unleashing Season 4 on a very eager audience. But a lot has happened in Westeros over the past three seasons. Luckily, Cas van de Pol has put together a Nightmare Before Christmas-inspired musical number to bring you up to speed.

The Captain’s full of action Synopsis

Reel Guys

When we meet up with the recently defrosted superhero Captain America (Chris Evans), he is catching up with the modern world. He soon finds himself tangling with the chrome-armed Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan), a villain from Cap’s long distant past and battle against a threat from deep inside S.H.I.E.L.D., his own spy network. The Captain must determine who can be trusted. Will it be S.H.I.E.L.D. director Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), the flirty but deadly Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) or World Security Council bigwig Alexander Pierce (Robert Redford)? The decisions he makes could save his life and the lives of 20 million civilians. • Richard: ••••• Chris Evans, right, stars in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Richard Crouse gives the movie some credit for its good action sequences. CONTRIBUTED

Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Blockbuster’s plot is ripe with twists and turns and some genuinely thrilling moments Richard: Mark, movie by movie, Marvel is creating an interconnected universe. Like a giant jigsaw puzzle, the comic book company has pieced together something quite unprecedented: a series of films that aren’t sequels to one another, but when combined form a loud, brash whole. Captain America was a latecomer to the party, and

while the first film was a solid introduction, it didn’t have the sparkle of, say, the first Iron Man movie. The character seemed a bit beige; a do-gooder with no rough edges. The Winter Soldier addresses those concerns, fleshing out the character and providing some very good action sequences. What did you think? Mark: I’m not sure the word “think” applies much to the movie. But I did enjoy it, much more than the first installment. The plot seemed rooted in some reality, in a kind of paranoid thriller way, like Enemy of the State and Three Days of the Condor, and Robert Redford’s presence makes the connection

even more explicit. But I still don’t feel I knew Captain America any better in this one. He’s still a cipher to me — a sphinx with a very powerful garbage can lid. RC: This time out I thought Evans got deeper into the character. Physically he’s one big rippling muscle, but it’s his personality and attitude that make him interesting. He’s still a do-gooder, but one who questions his mis-

sions. “You’re holding a gun to everyone on Earth and calling it protection,” he says after learning of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s violent plan to bring peace to the world. It’s an edgy message from a Greatest-Generation type to a world where drones have become common and Edward Snowden rides the line between patriot and traitor. The message permeates the plot, which is ripe with twists and turns and some genuinely thrilling moments. MB: Dunno about the message, but there were two long memorable car chases, and that’s enough for me! Loved the cast — Redford, Samuel L. Jackson, Anthony Mackie, all great fun, but Scarlett Jo-

hansson was the cherry on the top of this sundae. She plays a lot of scenes without much makeup, which made me believe she was actually on an op. In the fight scenes, I’m sure Evans and Johansson used stunt doubles, but it looked they were doing their own work. Nice directing. RC: I enjoyed the performances. Johansson, in particular, is mad, bad and dangerous to know as Romanoff, and kicks so high it’s only a matter of time until she gets her own Avengers movie. MB: I’m looking forward to the next installment: Captain America and Tennille, where he saves the world and sings poppy ’70s love ballads.

She’s starting with the demon in the mirror more gradually thinking, “Oh no, she’s insane.” It’s quite a cool journey.

Oculus. Karen Gillan shaved her head for Marvel’s tent-pole summer film — but first she stars in a freaky thriller

Did you have any trouble with the American accent? I mean, I worked with a dialect coach a lot because I had a 13-page monologue to get through. There are certain sounds that I struggle with, or I just slip into this crazy Boston accent out of nowhere. I didn’t know what it was (laughs). We’ll just assume she spent some time in Boston at some point.

Metro World News in Hollywood

Scottish actress Karen Gillan is making the move to the big screen after making a name for herself on Doctor Who. She shaved her head for this summer’s big Marvel adventure Guardians of the Galaxy, but first up, she has the terrifying new psychological thriller Oculus, featuring Gillan as a young woman trying to prove a demonic mirror was responsible for her family’s bloody demise 10 years earlier.

I guess Disney has those connections now. Exactly. It’s like, “I know just who to send this to.”

Cooking up drama on the gridiron Draft Day. Director Ivan Reitman set out to make a football movie with emotion Ned Ehrbar

Metro World News in Hollywood

Ivan Reitman returns to the director’s chair with the football drama Draft Day, starring Kevin Costner as the beleaguered general manager of the Cleveland Browns. For Reitman, the film signals a change in what sort of material he wants to direct — which means someone else will be helming Ghostbusters III.

How do you go about getting non-football fans to care about football? That’s the magic trick of this movie. When we were making it, I knew that if it was only for football fans, then the film wasn’t right. Because it’s really not so much about football, even though it takes place in the football

world. It’s really about human drama and being under pressure and rising against it. And you have Kevin Costner as the guy dealing with that pressure. There’s just something about the guy that looks like he should be doing this and could have done it in his

life. I said this to him when I first met him, that there’s kind of this inner goodness that he represents, this all-American kind of good guy quality that we as men want to follow, and it’s what makes him effective as a movie star. It’s sort of what Gary Cooper and all those great, classical old-time Hollywood guys had.

always torn for that reason. And then with Harold Ramis’s death, it just didn’t seem right for me to continue as the director, and I actually thought I’d be more effective as the producer of the project.

How did he respond to that? He sort of smiled shyly at me and changed the subject.

Director Ivan Reitman believes Ghostbusters III is still worth making.

HAHAHA.COM/WAYNEBRADY

Being in charge of a majorleague sports team is such a public job, with so many fans and critics offering unsolicited opinions. Sort of like being a movie director, right? There’s 100,000 reviewers out there, not counting all the people who review your movie anyway as individuals and tell their friends, “Yeah, it sucked.” It’s part of public life today, and it’s why I could relate to the story very easily. I felt very much like his job is the job of a director in a movie. I’ve had to deal with those kinds of pressures.

What do you think about the diehard Ghostbusters fans out there who don’t think a third movie is a good idea? People are cynical, and there’s now a million critics out there who let everybody know on a daily basis what they think about everything. People are always almost 90 per cent negative on what they don’t know, because what’s in their imagination is not necessarily correct. I know we have a script that I think will work, and I have a long history of making things work. I’ve been wrong a bunch of times, but I think this is a really good one, and I think it’s worth making. The studio does, too. So we’ll see. It will either work or it won’t. This will be a very considered sequel, if it’s going to happen.

B E N Y A W

What are your priorities for choosing projects to direct at this point in your career? At this age, if I’m going to continue directing, I think it will be things that are a little smaller and more intimate that have a stronger emotional core to them. It sort of led to that decision of withdrawing from Ghostbusters as a director. I wanted to do it, but I was

Did you know that Arnold Schwarzenegger keeps talking up the planned Twins sequel, Triplets, during his press appearances? Oh yeah? I know he wants to do it, but I’m not sure if Universal wants to do it. We have an actually pretty good script that just came in. As a producer I’m certainly interested. I think there’s an audience for it, and I think the studio is trying to make up its mind.

Old-timers wield power behind the Iron Throne Respect your elders. Veteran actors prove influential players in the Game of Thrones Like every Game of Thrones fan, Charles Dance was gobsmacked by last season’s next-to-last installment. That episode floored

viewers with its ritualistic Red Wedding, a massacre staged by Lord Walder Frey, the bride’s father, who meant to settle a score with his hall of guests, and did. “I got quite a shock!” says Dance, speaking for everyone who saw it. “It was bloody in the extreme!” The fact that Dance was caught off guard is notable, since he’s a star of the

show. Indeed, the character he plays, Lord Tywin Lannister, had a hand in the bloodshed. But he didn’t actually appear in that episode, “and when I’m not in it, to be honest with you, I don’t read the script,” Dance says. “I catch up on what’s happening when the episode airs.” Game of Thrones, which

returns Sunday at 9 p.m. ET/MT on HBO Canada, will pack its next punch soon enough in the new season. Such is the nature of this epic fantasy, set on a makebelieve continent called Westeros, chock-full of warring kingdoms, rugged landscapes, lots of sex and swordplay, and, of course, fire-breathing dragons. If the scale of the series is vast, the source material is no less sprawling: the five-and-counting novels by George R.R. Martin in the series A Song of Ice and Fire. “I still have not read the books,” says Dance. “They frighten me, books that thick. And, anyway, we’re dealing with an adaptation. I think it’s counterproductive for actors to come to the set with well-thumbed copies of the book their film is adapted from.” Dance’s despotic Lord Tywin is the grandfather of King Joffrey, an infantile tyrant whose betrothed is the granddaughter of Olenna Tyrell. Lady Olenna is played by Diana Rigg. On-screen future in-laws, Rigg and Dance have known and worked together for decades, including a 1997 British TV adaptation of Rebecca. Little wonder they get on famously as they meet with a reporter at a Manhattan hotel.

Quoted

“I loved the idea of playing this naughty old bag.” Diana Rigg, who plays the matriarch Olenna Tyrell on Game of Thrones

Rigg says she hasn’t read the Game of Thrones books either. “I rely upon the directors to fill me in before a shot,” she confides. “They’re very good with reminders.” Asked what drew him to the show, Dance smiles and answers, “The writing was good, the costumes are great and, eventually, the location catering was fantastic.” “I loved the idea of playing this naughty old bag,” Rigg says, offering her own explanation. “It’s my idea of heaven.” Now 75, Rigg has had a rich and varied career in theatre, both in her native Britain and as a Tony Award winner on Broadway, as well as films including the James Bond caper On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. But her breakout role was in 1965 in the British TV thriller The Avengers, where she played the catsuit-clad karate queen Emma Peel. “It put me on the map,” she says. “Which a lifetime of Shakespeare wouldn’t have done.” Tall and imperial, Dance, 67, grew up working-class

in England and overcame a teenage stammer to devote himself to theatre. His breakout project was the 1984 British TV hit The Jewel in the Crown, which he followed with more theatre and such films as Michael Collins, Gosford Park and the British miniseries Bleak House. His first job: working as a dresser in the original West End production of Fiddler on the Roof. Then he landed a spot in a London repertory company with a crushing regime: “It was 16 plays in 16 weeks. ‘What’s my motivation?’ ‘Your weekly paycheque. Just learn the lines and don’t bump into the furniture.’” Likewise, Rigg paid her dues in repertory. Besides dashing onstage to say her lines, she was charged with such production chores as handling recorded sound effects and background music. “Once, when the curtain was coming down, I was supposed to play Ride of the Valkyries,” she says. Instead, she mistakenly cued up a polka. “The looks I got from the rest of the cast at our curtain call!” the associated press

Bi no more? ‘I am a gay man now,’ says Tom Daley Tom Daley would like to clarify his earlier statement about his sexuality. When the British Olympic diver first divulged that he is dating a man — Oscar-winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black, as it turns out — in a YouTube video in December, he was sure to mention, “Of course, I still fancy girls.” But in an interview on Keith Lemon’s Celebrity Juice, Daley revised his statement, saying, “I am a gay man now.” And while he found the coming out experience terrifying, Daley is still glad he did it. “I came out on YouTube as I wanted to say what I wanted to say without anyone twisting it. I told my family before I told the world. I was terrified,” he says. “I did it on YouTube because people were constantly digging and asking questions.” Metro World News

Nigella barred from boarding flight to the U.S. The U.S. Embassy in London says celebrity cook Nigella Lawson was denied permission to board a flight to the United States on the weekend. The embassy did not disclose the reason for refusing Lawson, who admitted during a recent court case that she had occasionally used cocaine. Embassy spokeswoman Lynne Platt said Thursday that Lawson was stopped from travelling

Sunday and had subsequently been invited to the embassy to apply for a visa. Lawson tweeted Saturday that she was going on vacation, but she also has worked in the U.S., where she cohosted TV cooking competition The Taste.

I really do feel badly for Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow. Say what you will about Gwyneth, no one ever accused her of not trying hard. And if someone who tries about 10 times harder than anyone else can’t win at marriage, what hope do mere mortals have? That’s not to say that the Paltrow-Martin marriage was all picket fences and soccer games. Rumour has it that prior to their conscious uncoupling, Paltrow and Martin engaged in a fair amount of conscious coupling with other partners, according to E! Online. Over the years, gossip

Gwyneth’s recent power struggle with Vanity Fair was reportedly the result of her attempt — ultimately successful — to keep the magazine from printing rumours of her affair with Florida businessman Jeffrey Soffer. She’s also been linked to Glee producer Brad Falchuk and attorney Kevin Yorn. Coldplay star Martin, meanwhile, has reportedly been spotted with Kate Hudson, Kate Bosworth, and Helena Christensen.

Germany’s global appeal LIQUID ASSETS

LIFE

I’m back from Germany — a winemaking country with a long history, both in its own vineyards and here in Canada. If you’re showing even a hint of grey hair, you probably remember Germany’s liquid output as the sweet and simple stuff your parents drank at bridge club parties.

But today’s German wines have a secret weapon. Predominately white, their balance of sugar and acidity make them extremely food-friendly, especially when you’re looking for a match with takeout. Sushi, Chinese, Mexican, Thai, anything spicy, and they can fill your glass.

I spent some time in the Mosel region: a beautiful part of the wine world populated by small fairy-tale towns where steeply planted vines grow on the slopes that rise from the banks of the meandering Moselle river. In the Mosel, Riesling is king, with wines like Dr.

Loosen’s 2012 ‘Dr. L’ Riesling ($13.95 - $18.99) offering soft, green apple/fruit expression and a palate-cleansing personality that pairs perfectly with the local cuisine. Pass the schnitzel. PRICES REFLECT RANGE ACROSS THE COUNTRY. SOME PRODUCTS MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE IN ALL PROVINCES.

This is one of the hottest tickets in town right now. So much so that it’s already sold out. So why are we telling you about it? Because we believe that when it comes to dim sum, anything is possible. So bribe, sneak, barter, or do anything else (legal) you have to do in order to be a part of this festival that’s featuring 10 vendors who plan on bringing your favourite dumplings to a whole new level.

Ah, the age old tradition of celebrating the Thai New Year with a huge water gun fight. All right, so it’s not a real tradition ... So what? Hanging out in a heated tent while you drench and get drenched sounds like a pretty fun time to us. Add chef Matt Blondin (Junk Bar), La Carnita, Come and Get It, Ardor Bistro, and Gushi to the day’s festivities and we’re pretty sure this is better than anything Wild Water Kingdom has ever offered.

Even if you don’t know art, you’ve heard of Francis Bacon. And if you do know art, you definitely know Henry Moore.

Blue Jays home opener. Veteran pitcher to make his first start in 2 1/2 years on Friday against Bronx Bombers On the eve of his first majorleague start in 2 1/2 years, Dustin McGowan was more stressed about the flight he was “fixin’ to get on.” “I hate flying,” the Blue Jays’ 32-year-old right-hander told Torstar News Service Thursday afternoon, just before he left the visiting clubhouse at Tropicana Field to head to the airport. McGowan flew to Toronto ahead of his teammates Thursday to get a good night’s rest before one of the most momentous starts of his roller-coaster career. A first-round draft pick in 2000, the hard-throwing righty made 27 starts for the Jays in 2007 and 19 the following year before landing on

the disabled list with a shoulder injury. Since then he has pitched fewer than 50 bigleague innings — a span of 5 1/2 seasons — as he endured multiple shoulder surgeries, as well as injuries to his knee and foot. It’s tough to imagine a career as checkered as his that found its way back on track. Yet, here McGowan is, set to take the mound at Friday’s home opener against the New York Yankees in front of a sold-out crowd. Though he knows the atmosphere will be raucous,

McGowan said Thursday he has no intention of trying to block out the crowd. “I definitely want to embrace it,” he said. “It’s going to be one of those games when there’s going to be lots of energy in the building and you want to take that momentum with you from the crowd. I’m sure there’s going to be a point in the game when I’m going to have to calm myself down and slow it down a little bit, but yeah, I want that crowd, I want it loud.” Jays fans are likely to oblige him.

Gone to the dogs ... and cat

• Each year, enough hot dogs are sold at Rogers Centre that, if they were lined up, they would cover the distance of 3,241 stolen bases. TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE FILE

• The league reached a licensing agreement with Hello Kitty creator Sanrio last winter, and now clothing, dolls and baseballs with the cartoon cat’s image will be sold at Jays games throughout the season.

The number of minutes it took for fans to snatch up tickets to the big game when they went on sale back in January.

In addition to the usual fanfare of the home opener and a game against the Yankees, it’s tough to think of another player on the current Jays’ roster who has been so universally rooted for as McGowan. His comeback start in September 2011 — then his first since July 2008 — was met with a stirring ovation. Friday figures to be the same, only with a packed house to boot. But for everywhere outside of Toronto, the spotlight on Friday will be squarely on McGowan’s counterpart with the Yankees, Masahiro Tanaka, the highly touted Japanese right-hander who’s making his major-league debut. McGowan said he doesn’t

look at it as a mano-a-mano matchup. “It’s not me versus Tanaka,” he said. “It’s the Blue Jays versus the Yankees. I’m sure it’s going to be electric in there because of him pitching his first game. I look forward to the challenge.” When McGowan was announced as the starter for the home opener in the final week of spring training, GM Alex Anthopoulos said he hoped to get away from the talk of his incredible story and focus instead on the fact that he’s simply a great pitcher. McGowan feels the same, but he knows his long road back to the big leagues is also part of who he is. “I’ll always have that with me because I focused so hard to get back to this point,” he said. “But yeah, there’s got to be a point where we forget about that and we just look forward. It’s good to come back from all of this, but I don’t want to have to come back from something else.” TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Melky Cabrera

Colby Rasmus

It’s been a new-look Cabrera this spring. The 29-year-old left-fielder from the Dominican Republic is back after having surgery to remove a tumour from his lower back. He played through pain in 2013, hitting .279 with 30 RBI in 88 games after joining the Jays as a free agent from San Francisco. Healthy enough, he’ll spell Rasmus in centre field as needed.

Rasmus is eligible for free agency in 2015, making this a big year for the 27-year-old centre-fielder. Rasmus had a banner season last year when he hit .276 with 22 homers, 66 RBIs and an .840 OPS (on base plus slugging). His 2013 performance earned him a one-year, US$7-million deal. Another quality season and he is looking at even bigger numbers.

1 3 5 R.A. Dickey

The erudite knuckleballer had a slow start last season before rallying to finish with a 14-13 record and 4.21 ERA. He knows improvement is needed. Dickey says he has prepared better this spring. “I feel more ready,” he said.

Dioner Navarro

The Jays are the fifth team in five seasons for the chunky Venezuelan catcher, who takes over from the departed J.P. Arencibia. At five foot nine and 205 pounds, Navarro isn’t a conventional pro athlete body type. “Attack, attack, attack,” is his preferred way to go at hitters.

Drew Hutchison

One of the few pitching success stories of the spring, Hutchison played his way into the starting rotation. John Gibbons compares him to former Blue Jay and current Met Shaun Marcum.

The Blue Jays host the New York Yankees Friday night in a home opener fraught with subplots and points of interest. Yankees star Derek Jeter will make the first Toronto trip of his final major league season. Jays pitcher Dustin McGowan will start a game for the first time since 2011. Masahiro Tanaka, the Yankees’ $155-million pitching ace from Japan, will make his major league debut. But the most anticipated element of the Jays’ home opener might be the Hello Kitty-branded gear available for the first time at Rogers Centre merchandise stands. This winter Major League Baseball reached a licensing agreement with Sanrio, the Japanese company that introduced that Hello Kitty cartoon character in 1974 and has plastered its image on everything from t-shirts to scissors to cutting boards. the canadian press

Encarnacion’s bats keep flying around Swirling into the stands. Losing it into the seats since the minors, says Edwin The count for Edwin Encarnacion has already begun. Not the number of home runs or RBIs the Blue Jays slugger will hit this season. No, the number of times he nearly decapitates a fan by sending his bat swirling into the stands. Heading into Thursday’s game, he had already twice lost his lumber in the seats — and while hard stats are elusive on this front, he may have the slipperiest grip in the majors. But the man himself is at a loss to explain it. “I don’t know where it comes from,” he said. Encarnacion, whose 78 home runs over the last two seasons rank third behind Miguel Cabrera and Chris Davis, said he usually loses his grip when he swings through a pitch without making contact, and he further suggested that “maybe” it happens when he

Wisniewski snapped a scoreless tie with his seventh goal of the season late in the second period.

Lowry stubborn in the face of pain NBA. MLSE president Leiweke marvels at Toronto point guard’s healing power

MLSE president Tim Leiweke expects to see point guard Kyle Lowry back on the court when the Raptors start the playoffs. Francis Wallace/Torstar News service

There’s not much that will stop Raptors guard Kyle Lowry from playing. Even doctors’ orders, it seems. In an interview with CBC’s George Stroumboulopoulos, Tim Leiweke told of Lowry’s doggedness in Toronto’s 119118 double-overtime loss to Oklahoma City on March 21. “Kyle has been carrying the whole burden for us all year,” says Leiweke, president and CEO of Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment. “He’s wearing out. Just aches and pains and finally at the end of the game we’re up, and they tell him: ‘That’s it. You’re shut down.’ And they take him back to the training table and the doctor said, ‘You’re done. You’re finished. You’re done for the night. And you’re done for a couple of games here ... you gotta rest.’ And then Oklahoma does their

The Raptors have clinched a playoff spot for the first time in six seasons, while the Toronto Maple Leafs are battling to make the postseason but their fate isn’t solely in their hands.

little run at the end and all of a sudden the doctor looks around and Kyle’s gone. “He’s literally darted from the training room without telling the doctors, goes back on, looks at the coach and says ‘I’m in,’ walks back into the game, checks himself into the game. The coach knew it, the coach was like, ‘Go.’ And we go to two overtimes with Oklahoma. They had to sit down with him after the game finally and just say, ‘Kyle, this is it. You’re done. You gotta take a couple games off.’ Lowry scored 25 points in his 46 minutes that night. The point guard sat out Wednesday’s 107-103 victory over the Houston Rockets

with a sore knee, the product of a hard knee-on-knee collision with Heat star LeBron James in Toronto’s loss at Miami two nights earlier. The Raptors have to hope the ailing guard shows the same remarkable healing powers as he did after that Oklahoma City game last month. “(Raptors GM) Masai (Ujiri) gets a call the next day,” Leiweke told Stroumboulopoulos. “Our athletic trainer who’s phenomenal, says, ‘You won’t believe this. I’ve never seen anything like it. I’m telling you, whatever was going on with him the swelling’s gone, he’s 100 per cent.’ And this was a guy who was saying we gotta do an intervention to keep him out. He told Masai he’s ready to go.” Stroumboulopoulos replied: “I don’t believe in miracles. That sounds suspicious. What’s going on?” “Yeah, well, if there was some secret potion we had, believe me, I’d put it in the Leafs dressing room, too,” Leiweke answered. The Canadian Press

New TFC midfielder an artist on and off the pitch Whether spearfishing in the blue waters off Cyprus, encountering a kangaroo on an Australian road or mulling over his latest art creation in his new Toronto home, Issey Nakajima-Farran is making the most of life. Club soccer has taken him to Japan, Singapore, Denmark, Australia, Cyprus and now back to Canada with Toronto FC. Thirty caps for the Canadian national team have added to his globe-trotting.

“I’ve loved it,” he said. “Getting to enjoy all these different cultures and places. You’re not only there for a week on holidays or whatever, you’re getting to enjoy a whole country for a whole year or two years, three years — Denmark, (it was) five years. “For me it’s just been a great experience.

been a dream career.” The 29-year-old midfielder’s life journey is just as diverse and interesting. Born in Calgary to a Japanese mother and a British-Canadian father (who was born in Rhodesia), he moved to Tokyo when he was three and London when he was 10. He spent his teenage years in the British capital, playing in the Crystal Palace youth system before heading to Japan to begin his pro soccer career.
