Public housing CEO on chopping block


Report damning. But Mayor Ford says it’s just ‘politicking’ Taking a page from Mayor Rob Ford’s crisis playbook, embattled Toronto Community Housing Corp. chief executive Gene Jones had a lawyer speak for him Thursday in advance of the meeting where he might be fired. The TCHC board of directors will convene Friday to discuss the ombudsman investigation that alleged numerous violations of hiring, promotion and conflict of interest rules.

Ford held a news conference to repeat his support for Jones and his criticism of ombudsman Fiona Crean, whom he accused of “politicking” and working for “special interests” he did not identify. Ford argued that TCHC is “a hell of a lot better” than it was when he came to city hall 14 years ago. Modifying a statement he usually utters about himself, Ford said: “Is it perfect? No. But none of us are.” Crean found that Jones’ TCHC hired and promoted without competition, created positions with no job descriptions, handed out unjustified raises, presided over reckless firings, ignored potential con-

flicts of interest and changed agreements to limit severance without telling employees. Crean rejected Ford’s accusations. “This investigation is no different than any other ... I’ve done in the last five years,” she said. “My job is to represent citizens when they have problems with their local governments, and I’ve just completed an investigation ... plain and simple.” Jones did not make any public comments. An employment and labour lawyer, Soma Ray-Ellis, appeared on CP24 on his behalf, saying Jones is beloved by TCHC tenants. TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Police board calls for biasfree officer training

TTC chair wants bus service reinstated to 2012 levels


Const. James Forcillo

Officer charged in killing back to work The return to work of a police officer charged in the videotaped gunning down of a teenager on an empty streetcar was denounced Thursday by the victim’s family and supporters. In a statement, they said they would be protesting on Sunday against the police handling of Const. James Forcillo. A preliminary hearing to determine whether Forcillo, 30, should stand trial is currently underway. He faces a charge of seconddegree murder for the police shooting of Sammy Yatim. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Toronto Police Services Board Chair Alok Mukherjee, left, and board member and city councillor Michael Thompson, have a private conversation during a special board meeting Thursday that was also open to the public. The Toronto Police Services Board is hoping a new policy on carding — the stopping, questioning and documenting of citizens in noncriminal encounters — will reduce a disproportionate impact on black people. There are 31 recommendations, which, if approved, would be phased in over three years. The board is also calling for bias-free officer training. JIM RANKIN/TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Law Society rejects Christian law school 28-21 vote. The Law Society of Upper Canada has voted against accrediting B.C.’s Trinity Western University law school that bans gay sexual intimacy

The Law Society of Upper Canada has voted against accrediting a controversial law school that bans gay sexual intimacy. Society benchers (directors) voted 28 to 21 against the Christian B.C. university law school, meaning graduates will not be able to apply to the Ontario bar. There was one abstention. The vote came after a full-

day of debate Thursday and another full-day debate April 10. Trinity Western wants to open the law school in 2016 and has the conditional approval of the Federation of Law Societies of Canada, the go-ahead from the B.C. government, and — most recently — accreditation from the Law Society of British Columbia. Controversy over the school has centred on the school’s “community covenant” — a five-page document students must sign that includes a promise to abstain from “sexual intimacy that violates the sacredness of marriage between a man and a woman” — in particular, concerns its discriminatory. Bob Kuhn, president of Trinity Western University, made

a plea to benchers Thursday morning, suggesting to vote no would be akin to “institutional bullying.” “If you disapprove, your decision will have validated the vitriolic, verbal and written attacks made against my community,” he said. Even some of the 21 benchers who supported accreditation took advantage of deliber-

ations to say they did so against their own personal beliefs. “I’ve been forced to conclude that I must vote for accreditation,” said Barbara Murchie. “We’re bound to do so by law.” “Maybe the covenant is good or bad or ugly, but the covenant is clothed by freedom of religion,” said Harvey Strosberg, who established a gay, lesbian and transgender reception at Osgoode Hall in 1998. The issue has become so contentious a Victoria lawyer has gathered more than 1,100 signatures to hold a new B.C. Law Society meeting to try to reverse the decision and lawyers based in Toronto and B.C. have filed a lawsuit against the B.C. government for approving the school in the first place.

Look, up in the sky, it’s Sign Man TD Tower. Gower Bursey maintains one of the highlights of the downtown skyline, making sure hundreds of neon tubes stay lit up on top of the building at Bay and Front The honking, grinding, cursing chaos of city life gets left behind every time Gower Bursey climbs 244 metres to work in the morning. Up there, the noise of urban life is reduced to stillness, with the distant thrum of middling traffic on the Gardiner Expressway mingling with the whooshing of the high-up wind. “OK guys, let’s get at ’er,” Bursey calls to his two-man crew. “Play no more. It’s time to work.” Bursey is responsible for keeping a mainstay of the downtown Toronto skyline lit up and looking sharp. For 20 years now, he’s changed the neon lights on the bright green TD logo that tops the bank’s tower at Bay and Front, as well as the red Canada Trust symbol before it. At 60, Bursey is a seasoned sign man. And proud of it. “This looks beautiful at night once it’s working,” he says with a smirk as he dons

his blue coveralls before hitting the job. “Just fantastic.” Bursey, a man with a rascally kindness and grey stubble that thickens to a white goatee on his chin, started his own company in the mid-’80s, called Burtek, a mélange of his family name with the word “tek.” “Everything in the ‘80s was ‘tek’ this and ‘tek’ that, so I just ran the words together,” he says. He maintains signs on several buildings around town, but the TD contract is his biggest job. The TD sign he works on looks like a cube from the ground, but it’s really four panels on each side of the white steel tower on top of the office building. Each side is made up of 325 green and white neon tubes, arranged vertically and ranging in length to conform with the bank’s logo. Harnessed to a long rope, Bursey climbs into a metal rectangular platform that hangs over the edge of the sign’s southern face by a cable on each end. With Burtek employee Paul

Goss at his side, they carefully belay down and get to work. Hundreds of feet below is the skeleton of the half-built Union Station, gently swinging cranes and the big blue lake in the distance dazzling. A third employee, 30-yearold Bursey apprentice Ben

Needham, ties individual tubes to a rope and lowers them down. Goss and Bursey work the tubes into slots on the sign, sealing them in with a dab from a silicone gun. “There you go. We’re getting the flow going,” Bursey quips. “Three guys who know what

they’re doing can do an awful lot of work.” Despite the harrowing height of his work, Bursey doesn’t talk about danger. He has, however, lost certain belongings to the wind, though nothing heavy or large has ever blown over the edge. He

TTC won’t launch Presto on first new streetcars: Report

The TTC will roll out the first of its new low-floor, air-conditioned streetcars on Spadina on Aug. 31. But, contrary to months of promises, the first of those vehicles won’t incorporate Presto fare-card readers. It will be Nov. 3 before the new vehicles begin accepting electronic payments, says a report from TTC CEO Andy Byford to the transit board on Wednesday. The TTC will be testing Presto on the new streetcars before it goes live in November. Until then, riders will have to use an interim solution “that will accept tokens and cash, and issue proof-of-payment receipts/transfers to customers,” says the report. “The fare-payment service on the new streetcars when they go into service will consist only of a single-ride vending machine and ticket validator,”

said TTC spokesman Brad Ross. Initially TTC riders using Presto will have to tap their card on an electronic reader when they enter the vehicle and then tap a machine on board the vehicle to get a proofof-payment receipt. That second tap is temporary until Presto is fully deployed across the TTC. It’s a measure that allows riders to transfer to subway stations or other nonPresto equipped vehicles, said Ross. The delay is in part to make sure the new streetcars and the Presto system work properly. “We want to make sure we get it right. We’re not going to test Presto on the first day of the new streetcar,” he said. The first wave of the Presto rollout on the TTC will continue through 2015. It includes the introduction of the system at an additional 11 subway

stations. The 14 stations that already provide Presto readers will also have updated equipment during that period, says Byford’s report. The report adds: “Discus-

sions between Metrolinx and TTC continue towards developing an overall schedule for Wave 2 and the full implementation of Presto.” TORSTAR news service

Elaborate ‘promposals’ causing prom-blems for GTA high schools As the school year ends ... Bans, limits being considered for ‘disruptive’ events “Promposals” are elaborate, endearing and sometimes expensive — but some educators say they’re also disruptive and are clamping down on them. Whether the result is a ban or simply limits on when they can be staged, it’s clear that the promposal trend — a creative way of asking someone to the prom — is on principals’ minds as the school year nears its end. North York’s Earl Haig Secondary School announced Wednesday that promposals may take place only before or after school hours. The rule was imposed “because of concerns from staff, because promposals were happening during school hours — kids were being pulled out of class,” said principal Renata Gonsalves.

Big questions

Promposals have morphed into elaborate events. Students have arranged scavenger hunts, hired airplanes to fly banners, purchased hundreds of balloons or even interrupted assemblies to pop the question. Video of the events get posted to Facebook and YouTube.

Sign of the times

From the corner of your block to the auction block Toronto is auctioning off pieces of the city’s history starting next week. About 100 decommissioned street signs will be put up for sale online Monday. A spokesman says there are about 1,750 old signs to be sold off and each will be displayed on an auction site for 60 days. the canadian press

as long as they don’t threaten safety or interfere with learning. Gonsalves said Wednesday’s announcement “was to give students the message that we are all for promposals — we think they are kind of neat — but they should happen after school hours.” If students do stage them during the school day, they won’t be punished, she added. “We’ll let them finish and we’ll scoot them along ... get them back to class. We do believe in love.”

ith spring finally here, the TTC is preparing for the impacts of what will be a very busy construction season in the city. Together with the City of Toronto, we want to get as much construction completed as possible this year to minimize the amount of disruption during next summer’s Pan Am/ Parapan Am Games. Road construction impacts TTC service and we adjust and add service to account for that. Add to the mix, a number of critical TTC projects and this will be a challenging year for the TTC, especially for its bus and streetcar services.

Among TTC projects this year will be an undertaking of major works at various locations along Queen Street East, which are linked to our state of good repair program. As well, there is the ongoing construction of Leslie Barns at Leslie Street and Lake Shore Boulevard East that will house the next-generation, low-floor streetcar fleet. I fully recognize the impact to 501 Queen streetcar customers and to those riding other routes that will be affected by this essential work. We will release full details of this work shortly, including a video that explains everything that needs to be done and the transit options available to cus-

tomers during construction. On Queens Quay, Waterfront Toronto continues to work on their transformation of the waterfront. Once complete, the TTC will install new rail and overhead wires to allow the 509 Harbourfront and 510 Spadina streetcar services to once again run the full length of their normal routing. Work along Spadina this summer will also necessitate a brief return of the Spadina bus along Spadina Avenue before the exciting debut on Aug. 31 of our brand new, low-floor streetcars. Thank you in advance for your patience while we all work together to improve infrastructure and transit in Toronto.

I started with the TTC as a summer student in the Human Resources Department and really enjoyed working alongside a dedicated and friendly staff. What I like most about working in the Occupational Health & Claims Management section is knowing that I am a part of a team that strives to make a difference every day to colleagues we serve. By ensuring every staff member receives the quality of service expected from the TTC, everyone is hard at work assisting with any matters facing our colleagues. It’s a rewarding experience at the end of the day knowing that I am able to help in any way I can.

EVENTS APR. 25-27:

· Toronto Blue Jays at Rogers Centre. Subway to St Andrew Station, five minute walk south.

APR. 30: · Toronto Raptors at Air Canada Centre (if necessary). Subway to Union Station.


Toronto made transit history in last Sunday’s Beaches Easter Parade as four generations of the TTC’s streetcar fleet – the Peter Witt, PCC, CLRV and new low-floor streetcar – rode the rails together for the first time.

· 504 King streetcars turning back eastbound at Roncesvalles; 505 Dundas and 506 Carlton streetcars turning back eastbound at High Park Loop from 5:30 a.m. Saturday, April 26, to 4:30 a.m. Sunday, April 27, for overhead wire upgrades. 504 King and 505 Dundas replacement buses will operate northbound from Sunnyside Loop via The Queensway, Roncesvalles, Dundas to Dundas West Station and southbound from Dundas West Station via Edna, Dundas, Roncesvalles, The Queensway to Sunnyside Loop.

with a disability or a physical limitation requiring priority seating. Priority seating, also marked with posted signage, is located near the front entrances of TTC buses and streetcars and near many doors on subway trains. Customers without disabilities who choose to sit in a priority seating area are required to vacate the seat for a person with a disability. Failure to voluntarily give up a seat could result in a fine of $235 plus applicable charges.

Making the TTC more accessible is a 2014 Customer Charter commitment. In addition to designated priority seating on vehicles, the TTC is enhancing accessibility this year by accommodating more Wheel-Trans trips (Wheel-Trans now operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week), implementing the Support Person Assistance Card program, and introducing new low-floor streetcars, starting with the 510 Spadina route on Aug. 31.

Robocall probe turns up no evidence Long-awaited report. ‘No discernible pattern of misdirection’ found A three-year investigation into allegations of fraudulent robocalls during the last federal election has found no evidence of intent to deceive voters,

nor any evidence of an orchestrated scheme beyond Guelph, Ont. A long-awaited report from commissioner of elections Yves Cote will come as vindication for the Conservative party, which has faced a cloud of suspicion for years over widespread reports of non-party supporters being directed to the wrong polling stations in

Pierre Poilievre, the minister of state for democratic reform, said the report proves

the Conservatives ran “an honest and ethical campaign” in 2011. Cote’s investigation is separate from robocall allegations during the same election in Guelph, where a young Conservative campaign staffer, Michael Sona, faces Elections Act charges for his alleged role in calls that impersonated Elections Canada.

Elections Act. Tories frame maligned bill as Ottawa elites vs. average Joes What’s a government to do when a litany of parliamentary watchdogs, academics, aboriginal leaders, editorialists and opposition politicians say your legislation stinks? If you’re Stephen Harper’s Conservatives, you seize the opportunity to make the debate over the Fair Elections Act into a political wedge issue — average Canadians

versus the Ottawa elites. Pierre Poilievre, the minister of state for democratic reform, spelled this out Thursday in a luncheon speech in Ottawa, borrowing a favourite phrase from former Ontario Conservative premier Mike Harris — “common sense” — to draw a line between ordinary folks and the out-of-touch political class.

Vatican calling. Pope’s phone call to divorcee leads to questions regarding church rules call from Argentina’s former archbishop, Jorge Mario Bergoglio, on Monday afternoon at their home in San Lorenzo, in the Argentine province of Santa Fe. Sabetta said his wife, Jacqui Lisbona, then took the call and spoke directly with the Pope. Word spread after Sabetta posted on Facebook that the Pope had called. Then came news stories speculating that Francis will do away with the ban on divorcees — or even their spouses — accepting the wine and bread that represents the blood and body of Christ, and full membership in the church. But Lombardi’s statement — issued in Italian, English and Spanish — cautioned that “consequences related to the teaching of the Church are not to be inferred” from the Pope’s private conversations.

What Pope Francis may tell Catholics in private telephone conversations doesn’t reflect church policy, the Vatican’s spokesman said Thursday. An unusual statement from The Rev. Federico Lombardi came after days of speculation that the Pope wants to change Roman Catholic Church rules barring communion for faithful people who remarry after getting divorced. The question arose after Francis reportedly called an Argentine woman who had written to him for guidance, saying her parish priest had denied her access to the sacraments because her spouse’s previous marriage had not been annulled. The woman’s husband, Julio Sabetta, said Francis told his wife that she was free of sin and should take communion anyway. Sabetta said he took the

No cheerleaders for the Bills

Putin wants more cyberspace control

The Buffalo Bills cheerleaders will be making no appearances this year, a decision that comes days after a lawsuit over pay and working conditions. Stephanie Mateczun, manager of the Bills and president of Stejon Productions Corp., wouldn’t explain the suspension. Two days earlier, five former cheerleaders sued the company and NFL team. One cheerleader said they had to take a “jiggle test” so their boss could assess their physiques. The cheerleaders seek unspecified back pay and legal fees. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

President Vladimir Putin has mocked the Internet as a CIA project and pledged to protect Russia’s interests online. The Kremlin has been anxious to exert greater control over the Internet, which opposition activists — barred from national television — have used to promote their ideas and organize protests. Russia’s parliament this week passed a law requiring social media websites to keep their servers in Russia and save all information about their users for at least half a year. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Garbage-to-energy plant ordered to stop burning medical waste Aborted fetuses. Order comes after learning waste from B.C. may contain human tissue An Oregon county commission has ordered an incinerator to stop accepting boxed medical waste to generate electricity after learning the waste it’s been burning may include tissue from aborted

fetuses from British Columbia. Sam Brentano, chairman of the Marion County board of commissioners, said late Wednesday the board is taking immediate action to prohibit human tissue from future deliveries at the plant that has been turning waste into energy since 1987. “We provide an important service to the people of this state and it would be a travesty if this program is jeopardized due to this finding,” he said in a statement.

“We thought our ordinance excluded this type of material at the waste-to-energy facility. We will take immediate action to ensure a process is developed to prohibit human tissue from future deliveries.” Kristy Anderson, a British Columbia Health Ministry spokeswoman, told The Associated Press that regional health authorities there have a contract with a company that sends biomedical waste, such as fetal tissue, cancerous tissue and amputated limbs, to

Small percentage

Marion County estimates that the facility processes 635 tonnes of in-county medical waste each year and about 1,100 tonnes from elsewhere, making it a small percentage of the total waste burned.

Oregon, where it’s incinerated in the waste-energy plant. The B.C. Catholic, a Van-

couver-based newspaper, identified the plant as Covanta Marion, based in Brooks, Ore. When contacted by The Associated Press on Wednesday, a Covanta Marion representative said he did not know if fetal tissue was included in shipments from Canada or elsewhere. The facility is owned and operated by Covanta in a partnership with Marion County. According to its website, it processes about 500 tonnes per day of municipal solid

waste, generating up to 13 megawatts of energy sold to Portland General Electric. County spokeswoman Jolene Kelley said medical waste has been included in the program for some time, but the commissioners never had any indication that fetal tissue might be included. “We learned that today,” she said. Commissioners did not say why they believe medical waste shipped to the plant should be free of fetal tissue. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Smackdown. Tories ban restaurants from using foreign worker program

Yellow ribbons a symbol of hope for return of passengers A female relative of a passenger aboard the sunken ferry Sewol is consoled by her husband as yellow ribbons are displayed as a sign of hope for the safe return of missing passengers at a port in Jindo, South Korea, Thursday. Divers made their way deeper into the submerged wreck of a ferry that sank more than a week ago as the death toll neared 160 and relatives of the more than 140 still missing pressed the government to finish the grim task of recovery soon.

Amid a roar of criticism, Employment Minister Jason Kenney took action Thursday against the government’s scandal-ridden temporary foreign worker program by banning restaurants from accessing it. Kenney issued the surprise moratorium hours after the C.D. Howe Institute released a scathing study into the program that concluded it had spurred joblessness in B.C. and Alberta, two treasured Tory strongholds. The smackdown to Canadian restaurants came despite Kenney’s insistence in recent weeks that only a small number of companies were abusing the program and his repeated vows to deal with those bad actors harshly, including with fraud charges if necessary. “I am announcing an immediate moratorium on the

food services sector’s access to the temporary foreign worker program,” Kenney said in a statement. He added his ministry will not process any new or pending applications for temporary foreign workers from restaurant operators, and any unfilled positions tied to previous approval will be suspended. “This moratorium will remain in effect until the completion of the ongoing review of the temporary foreign worker program,” he said. Some stakeholders suggested Kenney’s latest effort was feeble. “I don’t think he’s gone far enough,” said Stephen Hunt, the Western Canada director for United Steelworkers. “This is just another Band-aid that they seem to want to put on this program.” the canadian press

Bad news for lazy dogs: A new device, called Whistle, lets pet owners track how much exercise — or sleep — their fourlegged friends are getting. Whistle is similar to popular activity trackers designed for humans. It wraps around a dog’s collar and syncs with a smartphone app, collecting data on how much activity and rest the pet had. We tried it out on a dog who would much rather sleep under the couch than chase a ball. It’s no surprise to find out that the pup wasn’t getting at least 30 minutes of movement a day.

Most daring BASE jumpers ANDREW FIFIELD


Metalheads have soft spot for cats It’s hard to imagine metal musicians being especially affectionate. But beneath the darkness is a softer side as photographer Alexandra Crockett reveals in her book Metal Cats. Her images capture hard-core metalheads as they pose with their felines. METRO

Q and A

Just a silly idea ALEXANDRA CROCKETT

Photographer, 30, based in Oakland, Calif.

How did this photo series come about? I texted about 30 of my

metalhead male friends who I knew had cats. I said, ‘Hey, if I did this kind of, like, silly weird idea, what would you think about that?’ And they were all like, ‘Oh my God, I really want to!’ The project took me four years as I travelled along the West Coast.

If there’s one thing that illicit leaps from Whistler gondolas and some of America’s tallest buildings teach you, it’s that it’s hard to keep a good BASE jumper down. But the idea of sneaking to the peak of Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, is likely a leap too far. So what’s the plan for hopefuls wanting to drop from the uppermost height of human construction? There’s not really much you can do but bide your time and keep your fingers crossed for an invite. That seemed to work out just fine for champion jumpers Vince Reffet and Fred Fugen. (Via Skydive Dubai)

SCENE WEEKEND, April 25-27, 2014


What women don’t want Reel Guys


Married man Mark King (Game of Thrones’s Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) tries to push infidelity to Tiger Woodsian heights by cheating on his wife (Leslie Mann) with multiple mistresses, including Carly and Amber (Cameron Diaz and Kate Upton). “We got played by the same guy,” says Carly. The three women form an unlikely friendship, drowning their sorrows in a sea of tequila shots before hatching a plan to humiliate and financially ruin the three timer. • Richard: ••••• • Mark: •••••

Leslie Mann, Cameron Diaz and Kate Upton are three women wronged in The Other Woman, which opens this weekend. CONTRIBUTED

The Other Woman. Revenge comedy falls to tired stereotypes on how women view men, but at least the outfits are chic Richard: Mark, with The Notebook, director Nick Cassavetes made one of the most romantic movies of recent years. With The Other Woman, his pendulum has swung in the opposite direction. This is an antiromance flick about sex, lies and adultery but it’s ripe with laughs and some fun performances. Mann

goes all in as a Lucille Ballon-the-verge-of-a-nervousbreakdown type, Diaz has great comic timing, and even Kate Upton, who will never be accused of giving Meryl Streep a run for her money, is charming and funny. It’s not Bridemaids funny, but I laughed out loud quite a few times. You? Mark: Is it possible to like a movie but hate its sexual politics? Because that’s how I felt about it. I laughed, especially when Leslie Mann was onscreen. This movie is certainly her personal best. She’s amazingly loose and funny, especially in the first third of the film. But the revenge plot against the

cheating husband left me feeling queasy. He’s set up as such a cardboard lothario that he made the Kate Upton character look deep. There’s a positive male role model in the film, Mann’s brother, but he’s so anodyne and threatless that I couldn’t take him seriously as a character. The movie is interesting as a series of Rorschach tests about how women must view men — either cads or eunuchs — but I had to banish these thoughts or I couldn’t enjoy the comedy. RC: I see what you’re saying, and I suppose the film is a bit mean-spirited and not terribly subtle in its exam-

ination of the dynamics between men and women, but it does get the girl power stuff right, and I think that’s more the point of the film. This isn’t a movie about the men; they are simply the McGuffins that forward the plot. This is a movie about female bonding rather than female blaming. MB: Anyway, at least it’s a good-looking movie, and the women’s outfits are chic. Don Johnson is given a part that’s more than a cameo, but less than a role. I think he could have been onscreen more with a beefed-up part. But Nicki Minaj, as Diaz’ assistant, steals every scene she’s in.

I thought she was a hoot. Richard, did the soundtrack bother you? Such obvious choices, like New York, New York when the husband enters the city, or the Mission: Impossible theme when the three women tail the husband to find out what he’s up to. RC: Absolutely. The soundtrack is as subtle as CosterWaldau’s cheesy pick-up lines. Five minutes in, I was willing to bet Girls Just Wanna Have Fun would play … and I would have won that bet. MB: And I bet the women will cheer and the men will groan at this flick.

Director. Camille Delamarre Stars. Paul Walker, David Belle

Set against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangier, an underground musician, deeply depressed by the direction of human activities, reunites with his resilient and enigmatic lover. Their love story has already endured several centuries at least, but their debauched idyll is soon disrupted by her wild and uncontrollable younger sister.

In a dystopian Detroit, abandoned brick mansions left from better times now house only the most dangerous criminals. Unable to control the crime, the police constructed a colossal containment wall around this area to protect the rest of the city. For undercover cop Damien Collier (Paul Walker) every day is a battle against corruption. For Lino (David Belle), every day is a fight to live an honest life.

An aging fighter (Dominic Purcell) in search of redemption steps into the ring with a hungry young pugilist (Izaak Smith) with something to prove in this boxing drama featuring James Caan and Louis Gossett, Jr. The film also features Famke Janssen, Kim Coates, Adam Beach, Sheila McCarthy and Michael Ironside.

From the producer who brought you The Woman In Black and Let Me In comes the unnerving tale of The Quiet Ones. Tucked away in an estate outside of London, Professor Coupland along with a team of university students conduct an “experiment” on Jane Harper, a young girl who harbours unspeakable secrets. What dark forces they uncover are more terrifying than any of them expected.

Gina Carano stars as Ava, a trained fighter with a dark past. When her new husband (Cam Gigandet) vanishes during their Caribbean honeymoon, Ava uncovers a violent underworld of conspiracy in the middle of an island paradise. Armed with a deadly set of skills, Ava sets out to discover the truth — and to take down the men she thinks are responsible for his abduction, one by one.

“For the past nine years, Reel Canada has been introducing young people and new Canadians to great Canadian films and the response has been overwhelmingly positive,” says Jack Blum, executive director of Reel Canada.

adians,” Blum says. “We just believe that if we can overcome the ‘awareness’ barrier created by the huge promotional budgets Hollywood commands for its product, that people will embrace our fantastic legacy of great cinema.” To help celebrate the inaugural National Canadian Film Day, Cineplex has donated screens to show a variety of homegrown films, including



the festival hit C.R.A.Z.Y. and Paul Gross’s Passchendaele. The Reel Canada website boasts that great Canadian films will be “available in more communities on a single day than ever before in our nation’s history.” “There are screenings happening all over the country,” says Blum, “literally in every province and territory as well as online and on TV. Of course, if you’re in Toronto, the place

to be is the Royal on College, where Bruce McDonald and Don McKellar will be presenting Highway 61 and Last Night.” Blum waves the flag when discussing the importance of exposure to Canadian films. “Canadian movies reflect Canadian experience. Period. When people see themselves and their world depicted on screen it gives them a stronger sense of where they live and what community or communities they belong to.”

The folklore: The genetically ill heir to unethical Oscorp Industries, Harry Osborn seeks vengeance on Spidey after the webslinger refuses a potentially lifealtering blood transfusion. In the Marvel universe, after taking a formula, Osborn gets enhanced strength and equips himself with a “goblin glider,” exploding pumpkin bombs and, consequently, a pretty knockout Halloween costume.

The Folklore: An electrical engineer that accidentally gains mutagenic powers that enables him to capacitate electricity (and then shoot it from his fingertips, naturally), Electro turns from a shy, introverted Spider-Man fan to power-hungry vengeance seeker who unites with the Green Goblin in order to gain fame.

The Folklore: The Rhino may historically be a Russian thug that participated in an experiment that bonded his skin to be hard as nails but in this film, he teams up with Goblin and gets outfitted with a heavily-armoured suit that enables him to become a raging, machine gun-toting maniac of destruction.

scene WEEKEND, April 25-27, 2014


Daily Show’s Bugle boy boogies to HBO John Oliver. Stint as Daily Show guest host provided springboard to comedian’s new topical comedy series When the time comes for a young bird to leave the nest, he’s often more than ready to go and doesn’t care too much what Papa Bird thinks. The analogy doesn’t apply to John Oliver, the former Daily Show featured player who debuts his new HBO topical series Sunday at 11 p.m. EDT. He’s extremely loyal to Jon Stewart, recognizing Stewart’s role in giving him the opportunity to get ahead, and sought the Comedy Central host’s blessing to move to HBO. “I have a pretty intense debt to him,” said Oliver, whose show is called Last Week Tonight. “I wouldn’t be doing this if it wasn’t for him.” Oliver, a native of Britain who was always interested in topical comedy, admired Stewart’s show from afar and in 2006 applied for and earned a job on the Daily Show. His path to HBO began last year, when Stewart called and said he was taking the summer off to produce a movie. Would Oliver mind filling in as guest host for a couple of months? He hung up and his legs went weak. Oliver’s wife didn’t help much when he recounted the conversation and she said, “Oh, that’s risky.” She was right. But her husband nailed it, keeping a formidable machine running smoothly and establishing a comic personality of his own: More bemused and less neurotic or angry than Stewart. Oliver said he really didn’t have a sense of how well it was going until Charlie Rose was a guest toward the end of his tenure. The CBS newsman said the audience had loved him. Had he thought about his next step? “That was the first time I’d heard that,” Oliver said. “He looked at me like I was a complete moron. My only barometer for going well was Jon not being mad at me when he came back.” His phone offered more clues. Offers for work started coming in. It was Oliver’s moment of opportunity, and both he and Stewart recognized it. HBO offered prestige and creative freedom to build a show as he saw fit, so Oliver signed on. It’s hard to describe something that hasn’t been on the air yet, but Last Week Tonight seems to be an apt title. Oliver will give a comedic take on stor-

ies in the news. It sounds similar to the Daily Show, but he realizes his challenge will be to take on topics that Stewart and Colbert haven’t already done, along with not making the telecast seem dated by the time it goes on the air. Another challenge is for Oliver not to let his respect for Stewart and the Daily Show to lead him into making a program that feels like a pale imitation.

“John Oliver does bring something kind of different,” said Jonathan Gray, a media and cultural studies professor at the University of Wisconsin in Madison. “The Daily Show is primarily about American politics and so much about John Oliver’s shtick reminds you that he’s not an American. It’s not the insider humour of Stewart. It’s more of an outsider’s observations.” Oliver, 37, is clearly aware of

how dangerous it can be for an outsider to make jokes about Americans. He defuses any worries with a self-deprecatory attitude. “I clearly love it here,” he said, “because I live here out of choice. You can’t really talk about anything that America has done without acknowledging that Britain had already done it much worse hundreds of years ago.” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Kevin Dunn. ‘It’s like all bets are off’ on HBO’s VEEP OSW-2148

Veteran character actor Kevin Dunn, who’s known for having a gentle, genial demeanour, is relishing being able to swear all the time on the expletive-rich political comedy series Veep. “It’s pretty liberating,” the 57-year-old said with a laugh in a telephone interview. “You spend most of your time, depending on the project, toeing a certain line — but with Veep it’s like all bets are off.” The Chicago native plays Ben Caffrey, chief of staff to the

U.S. president, on the Emmynominated HBO series that’s into its third season and was recently renewed for a fourth. It airs Sundays at 10:30 p.m. EST on HBO Canada. Ben first appeared on the show last season and became a blunt, curmudgeonly confidante to Vice-President Selina Meyer, played by Julia LouisDreyfus. His character has emerged as a fan favourite this season as he tries to ingratiate himself

with Selina, who is building a campaign after the president announced he doesn’t plan to run for re-election in two years. While Selina and the rest of her comical staff race around in a foul-mouthed frenzy of crisis management and scheming, Ben sits back and responds to how everyone else is reacting. But Ben does have a bipolar side and self-medicates with pills and a nine-cup Thermos filled with who knows what. And as Dunn puts it, despite

Ben’s collected demeanour, sometimes “you think he’s just going to go off on a bender somewhere and you won’t be able to find him.” “It’s like everyone on the show — you don’t know what their tipping point is, or when they might lose all control of their faculties. They all have this kind of Achilles thing where you get that uneasy feeling that something is going to go wrong.” the canadian press

After not A Very Long Engagement, Jodie Foster weds girlfriend Alexandra


Is Clooney Wynning this feud? Star storms out of dinner with hotel developer George Clooney didn’t have the best time dining with hotel and casino developer Steve Wynn during a visit to Las Vegas recently. The actor reportedly stormed out of a dinner with Wynn and a few associates after an argument over the Affordable Care Act, though each party has their own version of events. “When he’s drinking, he considers himself a close, personal buddy of the president,” Wynn tells the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “He got up and said, ‘I don’t have to listen to this f—ing stuff.’ The only person who got excited at the table was George, and he ran

Jodie Foster is a married woman. The 51-year-old Oscar winner wed girlfriend Alexandra Hedison over the weekend, Foster’s publicist confirmed, but offered no other details. It’s the first marriage for Foster, who came out publicly in a rambling, heartfelt speech at the 2013 Golden Globe Awards, where she accepted

off to another bar. Clooney’s fun to be with when he’s sober. If you have a chance to drink with him, you want to get there early, and don’t stay late.” Clooney, for his part, sent a statement via his publicist: “I said the president was my longtime friend, and then he said, ‘Your friend is an a—hole,’” Clooney says.“At that point I told Steve that he was an a—hole and I wasn’t going to sit at his table while he was being such a jackass. And I walked out. There were obviously quite a few more adjectives and adverbs used by both of us.” METRO WORLD

Oprah’s vengeful exstepmother dishes on star THE WORD

While Richard Gere is still in the process of divorcing Carey Lowell, his wife of 11 years, the Pretty Woman star has reportedly started dating Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi, according to Star magazine. “They’re just

getting to know each other,” a source says, adding that the romance “started very recently.” Gere and Lakshmi started spending time together when he headed to New York to work on his current film. METRO WORLD NEWS

Oprah’s ex-stepmother, Barbara Winfrey, wants revenge. After she divorced Oprah’s father Vernon, Oprah pushed Barbara out of the house where she lived with Vernon and which Oprah owned. Now Barbara is retaliating by dishing all in a Daily Mail interview. Here are the best bits: 1. She claims she has never seen Oprah and her long-term boyfriend, Stedman Graham, kiss, hold

hands or seem romantic. 2. “If it’s not more than friendship, they’re giving every appearance that it is,” she said about the close friendship of Oprah and Gayle King. 3. Oprah is obsessed with skin colour. “It’s a real thing for her. It’s one of the things she liked about Stedman. He has what we call ‘high yellow’ skin and soft hair … she liked that.” 4. Oprah forces everyone to sign a confidentiality agreement. “Once you’re in Oprah’s world, she owns you,” she noted. 5. There are rumours that Vernon is not Winfrey’s biological father. Barbara claims he wanted to do the DNA test but Oprah refused. “She knows it would prove he IS her father. She can’t quite believe that such a silly man could make such a magnificent creature,” she said.

It’s a boy for Olivia Wilde and fiancé Jason Sudeikis, who welcomed a son, Otis Alexander, last Sunday, the actress announced via Twitter. “Ladies and gentlemen, Otis Alexander has left the building! (I’m the building),” she tweeted, including a closeup photo of her with the newborn.

Bacon and Egg Pie: Bake a different type of pastry tonight THE FREE RANGE COOK Annabel Langbein

1. Preheat oven to 200 C. Place a flat baking tray in the oven to heat — the pie will sit on this and the heat will help it to crisp. 2. Cut a piece of baking paper to fit a 40 x 30 cm baking dish or roasting pan. It should cover the base and reach about 3-4 cm up the sides. Remove the baking paper from the baking dish or roasting pan and lay it flat on your bench. Dust it with a little flour and lay 2 pastry sheets on top. Join the pastry sheets by pressing them together firmly with a small overlap. Roll out the pastry to cover the paper. Lift the paper with the pastry and lay it into the baking dish or roasting pan (it will reach 3-4 cm up the sides). 3. Sprinkle the bacon over the pastry. Top with the sliced potato and sprinkle with the herbs. Break 8 whole eggs over the top.

4. In a mixing bowl, lightly whisk the remaining 6 eggs with the milk, salt and pepper. Pour this evenly over the whole eggs. 5. Roll out the remaining sheet of pastry very thinly and cut it into narrow strips. Arrange the strips in a lattice pattern on top of the pie, trimming off any excess. 6. Place the prepared pie on top of the heated baking tray and bake for 12-15 minutes until the pastry is starting to puff and turn golden. Reduce the heat to 180 C and bake until the pastry is golden and cooked through on the base — about a further 35-40 minutes. 7. Serve warm or at room temperature with a salad and pickles or chutney. It will keep in a covered container in the fridge for 2-3 days. WATCH THE ANNABEL LANGBEIN FREE RANGE COOK MONDAY TO THURSDAY AT 5:30 P.M.

A perfectly Roasted Pepper Pesto 1.

Rinse the peppers and pat dry. Place them on a baking tray and roast at 240 C for about 15-20 minutes until the skin is blistered and blackened. Remove from the oven and cover with a tea towel or put in a plastic bag to sweat. This will make it much easier to remove the skins later. Set aside to cool for about 20 minutes.

the oil in a small pan and sizzle the garlic and paprika for a few seconds. This helps bring out their flavour. Place this mixture

in a food processor or blender.

3. Remove the skins and seeds

from the peppers, saving the juices if you can. Place the flesh and any reserved juices in the food processor or blender with

the garlic and paprika mixture. Add the almonds and coriander. Season with salt and pepper and purée until smooth. Pesto will keep in a covered container in the fridge for a week. ANNABEL LANGBEIN, GUSTOTV.COM

Ingredients • 6 red peppers • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil • 2 cloves garlic, crushed • 1 tsp paprika (plain) • 1 tsp smoked paprika

• 1/4 cup almonds, roasted • 1/4 cup fresh coriander, chopped • salt and ground black pepper


With so many unique grape varieties growing around the world, you could drink a wine made from a different one every day for the rest of your life and never come close to saying you tasted them all. I recently tried a Turkish wine made from Öküzgözü: a piece of fruit native to Turkey’s Elazığ province. I hadn’t had it before and love that after decades of walking the wine beat, I’m still finding new-to-me juice. Of course you don’t have to go that far afield to try something other than merlot and chardonnay. There are plenty of mainstream countries producing wines from lesser known grapes. Puglia, the heel of Italy’s boot, has almost exclusive rights to Negroamaro — a dark, brooding berry that delivers well above its typically inexpensive price point. The 2012 Mezzomondo Negroamaro IGT ($8.95 $11.99) is majorly aromatic with dark berry fruit flavours and the grape’s classic light bitter finish, which makes it a perfect partner for meaty tomato sauces and weekend barbecues.

Date: May 24-25 Location: Various

Date: May 9 Location: ACC

Date: May 2-31 Location:

It’s not for another month, but the 15th annual Doors Open Toronto has just released the participating locations in this year’s lineup, making it the talk of the town. This is one of the best ways to get to know the Toronto that you’re quite literally not allowed to see any other time of the year. This year’s theme is Secrets and Spirits: Exploring the Mysteries Behind the Door. Not sure why they’re pushing a Halloween theme in May, but we’re still in.

What can’t Dallas Green do? The former frontman of Alexisonfire is now performing at the ACC. (That’s right, indie has come a long way to be selling out arenas.) Playing with MTL indie band Half Moon Run, this show has been pegged by many in the music industry as a can’t-miss. We suggest you buy your tickets now or start searching Craigslist for a missed connection with an extra seat.

With more than 175 participating venues throughout the city, you’re going to be making Contact whether you intend to or not. But you should definitely try making an effort to see some of the 1500 national and international artists on display on purpose. The list of participants and locations is already out, so pick and choose the art that inspires you most. After all, this is the biggest photography event in the world.

Date: Apr. 25 Location: Bata Show Museum

Date: Apr. 27 Location: Bellwoods Brewery

An elegant social fundraising event that mixes the sophistication of James Bond with the culinary delights of its host city and also happens to be held in a unique location? Yup, we’re in. The Bond Affair Pop-Up Dinner Series is being held tonight at the Bata Show Museum and will feature a four-course menu prepared by a top industry chef. All proceeds from the event will benefit Literature for Life.

We promise this is classier than it sounds. It’s in support of women’s breast cancer research. A series of unique, one-off craft beers will be tapped in honour of the event, with all proceeds being donated to PYNK, a breast cancer program for young women under 40 at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre. If you love beer and you hate cancer, this is definitely where you want to be on Sunday.

Raptors in need of star from Game 2

NBA playoffs. Coach, teammates confident DeMar DeRozan can rise to the occasion

After a wobbly playoff debut, Raptors star DeMar DeRozan returned to attack mode for Game 2 against the Brooklyn Nets. The 24-year-old Toronto guard had just 14 points in Game 1, with eight of those coming from the free throw line, in a 94-87 loss to visiting Brooklyn that saw DeRozan miss 10 of 13 shots. On Tuesday, a different DeRozan took the court. As he approached the Nets basket, it was as if his brain was in overdrive as it diagrammed possible plays. The possibilities seemed endless: dish off to a teammate, drive to the basket, pull back and take a shot. The Raptors will need more of the same Friday when the series switches to Brooklyn’s Barclays Center for Game 3. While Toronto preaches a team approach, the Raptors know good things happen when DeRozan is rolling. “I was just trying to feed him,” Toronto guard Greivis Vasquez said of Game 2. “I was just trying to get him the ball — it was just, ‘Go, go. We need you to get confidence.”’ Mission accomplished. DeRozan finished with 30 points, 17 of which came in the fourth quarter when he made four of five shots and nine of 11 free throws. He finished the game with five fouls, hanging his head at one

point at the end of the bench while his teammates huddled during a timeout. But he was on point when he returned to action in the 100-95 win. DeRozan’s fourth-quarter output was just two points off the club playoff record of 19, set in 2001 by Vince Carter against Philadelphia. Again and again, DeRozan answered the veteran Nets as they tried to claw their way back. For coach Dwane Casey, DeRozan showed his maturity by taking the shots the defence was giving him rather

Jeff Teague flung in a wild three-pointer after the officials appeared to miss him stepping out of bounds, and Kyle Korver finished off Indiana from beyond the arc to lead the Atlanta Hawks to a 98-85 victory Thursday night and another lead in the series with the top-seeded Pacers. Hardly playing like a No. 8 seed that finished 38-44 during the regular season, the Hawks took control in the third quarter and held off the Pacers to go up 2-1 in the best-ofseven series. Game 4 is Saturday in Atlanta. The Hawks were up 84-78 with the shot clock running down when Teague launched a running shot from the wing — after his foot seemed to clip the line. It counted, even after a video review.

MLS. Toronto FC’s bye week a time for healing the walking wounded It’s a bye week for Toronto FC, but team trainers are still working overtime. Toronto (3-3-0) has had as many as 10 players getting treatment this week. The good news is that star striker Jermain Defoe ran past reporters Thursday, after working out separately from the main squad under bright sunshine at the team’s north Toronto training ground. Defender Doneil Henry has also resumed light training after a calf and knee injury. Defoe (hamstring) and Henry have both missed the last three games. Midfielder Michael Bradley, who played in Saturday’s 2-1 road loss against FC Dallas, did not practise Thursday. He had a previously scheduled minor procedure on a

nerve issue in his foot that has been bothering him for some time. “It just means he’s just got to get off it (the foot) for

a week,” said manager Ryan Nelsen. “This was always planned, to do it at this time when we have a couple of weeks off.” Bradley, who did not look like himself against Dallas, had missed the previous game against Colorado due to quadricep and groin issues. Midfielder Jeremy Hall is a longer-term injury concern, however, with an Achilles injury. Most of Toronto’s walking wounded should be back in practice next week with Bradley and Defoe both expected to be available for selection for TFC’s next outing, May 3 against the visiting New England Revolution. New England (2-3-2) hosts defending champion Sporting Kansas City this weekend. The Canadian Press

Navarro put the Blue Jays on the board in the bottom second inning with a solo shot for his first homer of the season. Juan Francisco followed with a single and scored when Rasmus belted a two-run blast. Norris settled down after his rough inning and faced the minimum 11 batters until hitting Encarnacion with a pitch in the sixth inning. Bautista had an RBI single in the eighth inning and has now reached base in all 22 games this season. The Canadian Press

Goaltending is everything Fleury takes the heat. Penguins’ goalie under fire, even with Crosby and Malkin not scoring One of the great things about the world we live is the instant access to information we neither need nor fully understand. For instance, when MarcAndre Fleury pulled one of the great choke jobs — even for him — in NHL first-round playoff history on Wednesday, Twitter’s #Fleury hashtag trended to the top and was still going strong on Thursday. Weird thing, though — it was going strong in Russian. It’s clear the Penguins have a lot of Russian fans, not Fleury. And that’s the world Fleury lives in. The team’s great when it’s winning. The goalie’s horrible when it’s losing. The Penguins are tied 2-2 with the Columbus Blue Jackets. They surrendered a 3-0 lead and in the last minute of

Fleury versus Price Now compare the braincramped Fleury to the savvy Carey Price. Did Montreal ice the puck and do his linemates need a rest? Price has a problem with his equipment. Is there a player in his crease? Price makes sure to “get hit” by him, just in case. A goal is called back. Is there a stoppage in play so Price can skate to the bench? Why not trip an unsuspecting Tampa player or two en route?

PLAY WEEKEND, April 25-27, 2014



By Kelly Ann Buchanan


Sept. 24 - Oct. 23 No matter how determined you are to make an impression on people in positions of power you must not run yourself into the ground.



April 21 - May 21 All things may be possible for you now but the planets warn you should be tying up loose ends rather than starting anything new. Are you prepared for what is to come? Get your act together.


May 22 - June 21 You will find it easy to get your way. Others will take it for granted that you are the boss and do as you say. If you use charm rather than coercion you will find that everyone will do almost anything for you.

Oct. 24 - Nov. 22 You won’t be shy about letting those you care for know how much they mean to you. Creatively, too, this should be a good day for you, so let your artistic side come to the fore.


Nov. 23 - Dec. 21 If you have been too busy to spend much quality time with loved ones recently, you will get the chance to make up for it over the next few days. You’ve had your fun, now you want those you have feelings for to have fun as well.



June 22 - July 23 No matter how much others might question your beliefs, if you are happy with them there is no reason to change. Yes, some of your ideas may seem irrational, but so what?


July 24 - Aug. 23 Make sure you get value for money today because if you don’t take care of your cash, others will get rich at your expense. You may not care now how much things are costing you but you will when you can no longer afford them.


Aug. 24 - Sept. 23 If you make an effort to reach out to those you love, this will be an enjoyable day. Some may be of the opinion that you lack the human touch but obviously they don’t know you.

Dec. 22 - Jan. 20 You want to go out and have a good time but you also want to express your feelings openly and honestly. Yes, you can do both. This is the perfect day to use those three magic words: “I love you”. Mean them.


Jan. 21 - Feb. 19 You are on a winning streak at the moment and the planets indicate it will continue into the weekend. It doesn’t have to be just about money — you will be lucky in love as well.


Feb. 20 - March 20 You will feel good about yourself today, thanks to the influence of Venus, planet of harmony, in your sign. Try to avoid work that may be strenuous because it’s unlikely that your heart will be in it. Sally BROMPTON
