No clear answer from dam panel

Bloodthirsty kitty attacks ex-actor

Bryn Ward, real estate agent and former actor, was viciously attacked by a stray cat during a showing of a New Westminster home on Tuesday. CONTRIBUTED

‘Oh my god, not my face.’ Stray cat surprised realtor at showing SAM SMITH

It was like a scene out of a horror movie. The real estate salesperson showing the client a new home in New Westminster. Everything is going well, then suddenly, a noise. THUNK. There should only be the agent and the client in the house ... So who, or what, made the sound?

Instead of calling 911 or simply stepping out the house, real estate agent (and former actress, most notably on Party of Five) Bryn Ward decided to investigate. “All of a sudden this cat, we didn’t even know there was a cat in the house, jumped on (my client) and she fell backwards over a table and the cat was on top of her,” Ward said. Having been a pet owner, Ward felt confident enough and decided to jump in and grab the animal. “I was trying to get the cat off of her and then it turned on me,” she said. “Now it’s hanging off my face and all I’m

thinking is ‘Oh my god, not my face,’ and this cat would not stop. Like, it just, I thought it was going to kill us.” Ward finally managed to tear the cat off her face and lock it in a room, but not before getting clawed and bitten on her arms and legs. But as she put the cat down that’s when she saw them — the kittens. “I guess it was a stray cat that the owner had been feeding and took it into the house a few days ago, and it had kittens,” she said. “I don’t blame it, it was protecting its kittens right, but holy cow.” Ward and her client quickly

went to Royal Columbian Hospital for their wounds. “I remember asking my client after, ‘Is it bad?’ and they said go look in the mirror, and it was like Carrie, I just had blood streaming down everywhere,” she said. Ward now has stitches on her face, a black eye, and cuts all over her body. She hasn’t done any more showings since the incident on Tuesday, May 6, but that’s not to say she’s going to stop. “But I will definitely be cautious every time I book a showing,” she said. “Call me if you don’t have a crazy cat, I’m happy to sell your house.”


The joint review panel weighing the future of the massive Site C dam in northern British Columbia says the benefits of the multibillion hydroelectric project are clear. But in a report that gives no clear yes or no answer, the panel said the proponent, Crownowned BC Hydro, has not demonstrated the need for the dam on the timetable it set out. “Site C is not an ordinary project. At $7.9 billion, it might be the largest provincial public expenditure of the next 20 years,” said the report that was released to the public on Thursday. B.C. will need new energy and new capacity at some point and the dam on the Peace River would provide a large amount of inexpensive power that would be low in greenhouse gas emissions, it said. “Site C would seem cheap, one day,” the report said. “But the project would be accompanied by significant environmental and social costs, and the costs would not be borne by those who benefit.” In the 471-page report, the panel cited significant adverse effects on fish, wildlife and plants. “The Peace River region has been and is currently undergoing enormous stress from resource development,” the panel said. Among the recommendations, the panel said the dam proposal should be referred to the B.C. Utilities Commission for a detailed examination of project costs. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Yaletown residents suing city over proposed Emery Barnes Park tower Petition. Group says city wasn’t transparent enough about plans for 36-storey structure


“We don’t feel that it’s been a fair or a lawful process that the city has undertaken.” Jon Green, president of the Community Association of New Yaletown

Thandi fletcher

A group of Yaletown residents is suing the city of Vancouver to try to stop the construction of a condo “mega-tower” in the popular Emery Barnes Park. The Community Association of New Yaletown says city staff were not transparent enough about plans for the proposed 36-storey condo tower at the northeast corner of the park. “We don’t feel that it’s been a fair or a lawful process that the city has undertaken,” said community association president Jon Green.

The group is taking their concerns to the B.C. Supreme Court in a lawsuit against the city and the development permit board, claiming city staff withheld information about

the proposal from the public. A petition filed Tuesday asks for judicial review of the rezoning approval for the proposed development at 508 Helmcken St. It also asks the court to re-

view the development permit board’s decision to increase the density for a proposed 13-storey social housing building across the street at 1099 Richards St. The developments are the

result of a land-swap deal between Brenhill Development and the city. Brenhill traded the property on Richards Street for the city-owned lot on Helmcken, where the developer wants to build a 36-storey tower with 454 residential units, some retail space and a private preschool and kindergarten. In exchange, the developer would provide replacement housing for the residents of the aging Jubilee House social housing building currently located at 508 Helmcken. Green said residents are worried the proposed tower’s high density will bring hundreds of new people to an already-busy park. They are also

concerned the tower’s height will have a negative impact on the park’s open and inviting feel. “We’d like to see the park expanded so even more people can enjoy it,” he said. Green, who lives in Yaletown, insisted his group is not opposed to density, but that the proposed project “goes too far.” “We’re all for density but if you look at most buildings around there, they’re all around 18 storeys,” he said. The city said in a statement that it has just become aware of the petition filed by the Community Association of New Yaletown and is currently evaluating it.

Trans Mountain Pipeline. Energy expert calls Kinder Morgan’s economic plan ‘fabricated and fictitious’

Cirque du Soleil’s Totem visits Vancouver About 60 men and women pushed more than 100 supporting poles to raise the Cirque du Soleil big top at Concord Pacific Place. Totem opens on May 15, and runs through July 6. Jennifer Gauthier/Metro

A former BC Hydro CEO and an expert with 40 years worth of experience in the energy industry has called Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain pipeline economic case, as presented, a lie. Marc Eliesen, who was granted intervenor status in the proposal before the National Energy Board, said the company has put forward a plan that deliberately paints a positive picture without the economic sense to back it up. “My conclusion, I’ll await some of their answers, but in my judgment it’s quite clear the economic case that they’ve presented is fabricated and fictitious,” he said. “When you forecast oil prices into the future, anyone who attempts to do that, they know they’re going to be wrong,” he said. “How can anyone say what the oil prices will be in 20 years, when you don’t know what’s going to

take place in the next three or six months?” The Trans Mountain Pipeline project aims to increase capacity for oil transportation from Edmonton to the West Coast from 300,000 to 890,000 barrels per day. The projected capital cost is roughly $5.4-billion. Eliesen also doesn’t like the lack of sensitivity analysis which is meant to account for potential variables in expenses and costs. “I’m sure, Kinder Morgan for example, doesn’t make an investment decision without undertaking this kind of analysis,” he said. “They would have to do it.” Eliesen submitted 300 questions as an intervenor on May 2 and will receive answers from Kinder Morgan by June 4. Metro reached out to Kinder Morgan for comment, but no calls were returned before press deadline. Sam Smith/for Metro

No injuries

Downtown sex shop collapses City engineers are investigating why a section of the roof of a downtown Vancouver sex shop came tumbling down early Thursday. Vancouver firefighters were called around 3:30 a.m. to the one-storey building at Helmcken Street between Granville and Howe, said spokesman Capt. Gabe Roder. Roder said the building had a 20-foot overhang that “fell away” onto the sidewalk of Helmcken Street. One person was in the building at the time but there were no injuries, he said. While the cause of the collapse is not yet known, Roder said city engineers have determined that the risk of any further collapse is “highly unlikely.” “This is not what we could call a major structural collapse,” he said, adding that engineers are continuing to investigate the cause of the collapse.

UBC responds to softball team’s lawsuit Legal battle. School says it was entitled to change status from varsity to competitive club UBC has officially filed its response to the women’s softball team’s civil lawsuit against them, stating the plaintiffs’

claims have no merit and the university was entitled to make the changes it did. The response, filed Wednesday, stems from the school’s softball club taking the university to task over the decision to downgrade their team from varsity to competitive club status by September 2015. They claim the school made its decision based on gender discrimination and has breached

its contract. But the school says this is untrue. “The university is entitled to review and make changes to its varsity sports program,” UBC states in a media release. “Prior to making changes the university consulted with its varsity teams and the university athletics community through its sports review process.” All 29 teams were carefully

evaluated, the school stated, and the women’s team was just one of five to get realigned to competitive club status. The planned one-year transition means the team will still play at the varsity level next year. The university has also said it will honour existing athletic scholarships for the duration of the athletes’ eligibility. Sam Smith/For Metro

Protest. Thousands expected at ‘No Enbridge’ rally With a decision looming from the Prime Minister’s Office sometime in June, local opponents to Enbridge’s Northern Gateway pipeline are ramping up their efforts to stop the project. Thousands are expected to attend a “No Enbridge” rally on Vancouver’s Sunset Beach on Saturday to let the government know exactly how much they don’t want this pipeline, which would carry oil from Alberta to B.C.’s coast. “We think it’s really critical we take this moment to call on Harper to do the right thing,” said Ben West, director at ForestEthics Advocacy. “It’s also important as a reminder to people that no matter what the prime minister does, this isn’t the end of the conversation.” West expects the protest to be the largest yet against the Who wears short shorts?

pipeline. About 5,000 attended the group’s last major protest, held at Science World in November 2013. If the federal government does approve the project, opponents will go to every length possible to tie it up in lawsuits (First Nations hold title to land the pipeline hopes to traverse), organize politically against the government and even resort to civil disobedience, West said. “That’s a last resort,” he said, but if it comes down to it, organizers will help ensure it is done safely. “I think the Harper government will be making a very big mistake if they don’t pay attention to the level of outrage and frustration there is on the ground in this province.” The protest takes place Saturday at Bute and Beach Avenue between 2 and 5 p.m. Emily Jackson /Metro

Pop-up program

Dry, hot summer predicted

City hall coming to a neighbourhood near you

It’s gonna be a long, hot summer, Vancouverites. Well, at least it will be if’s summer 2014 forecast, released this week, is correct. “We have aboveaverage confidence that the summer will be very warm compared to normal with less rainfall over much of British Columbia,” the forecast says. A combination of high pressure and abovenormal sea surface temperatures in the Pacific bodes well for Vancouver in particular.

For those who don’t want to trek to city hall, the city has decided to bring city hall to you. The mayor launched on Thursday a pop-up city hall program that will provide easy access in your neighbourhood to municipal services including blue box pick up, voter registration, information on job opportunities and public consultations. “People have busy lives, and it’s not always convenient to stop by City Hall during the work week,” Mayor Gregor Robertson said.

Plebiscite a go, despite Putin’s plea The photocopy machines churning out the ballots for eastern Ukraine’s sovereignty referendum have been clattering around the clock for days. Even the powerful Vladimir Putin can’t stop them. Despite the Kremlin leader’s plea to postpone Sunday’s vote, the pro-Russia rebels in Ukraine who call themselves the Donetsk People’s Republic

said they’ll go ahead with the referendum. Ukraine has in recent weeks grown perilously polarized — with the west looking toward Europe and the east favouring closer ties with Russia. Support for the referendum is most pronounced among eastern Ukraine’s proudly Russian-speaking

working class. Rage against the central government that came to power after months of Ukrainian nationalist-tinged protests is blended with despair at Ukraine’s dire economic straits and corruption. Along with the vote in the eastern Donetsk region, a similar and even more hastily improvised referendum is due to take place Sunday in the

neighbouring Luhansk region. Together they have about 6.5 million people. The referenda are similar to the one in Crimea in March that preceded Russia’s annexation of that strategic Ukrainian Black Sea peninsula. Like the one in Crimea, they are regarded as illegitimate both by Kyiv and the West. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Military failed to stop Boko Haram attack: Locals At least 50 killed. Villagers say security forces knew insurgents were nearby Residents of a Nigerian town attacked by Boko Haram criticized security forces for failing to protect them despite warnings that the Islamic militants were nearby. At least 50 bodies have been recovered, many horribly burned, in the town. The attack on Gamboru, in remote northeastern Nigeria near the border with Cameroon, is part of the Islamic militants’ campaign of terror that included the kidnapping of teenaged girls from a school, 276 of whom remain missing and believed held by Boko Haram. The death toll from the Monday afternoon attack in Gamboru was initially reported by a senator to be as many as 300, but a security official said it is more likely to be around 100. Some Gamboru residents said bodies were recovered from the debris of burned shops around the town’s main market, which was the focus of the attack.

Is the real cost of fracking Metro wraps up its look at the controversial practice. Alberta couple blames nearby operations for hair loss, nosebleeds Cam Tucker

Nielle Hawkwood began noticing that her hair was falling out about four years ago. She also began experiencing skin irritation — as did her husband, Howard — as well as nosebleeds. Two years ago, she was diagnosed with alopecia, which causes significant hair loss. “The dermatologist said something has affected my immune system,” said Nielle, during a visit in April to the couple’s 456-hectare cattle ranch nestled amongst the rolling brown hills north of Calgary. They have been there for 34 years and it’s been in Howard’s family since 1972. Both Nielle and Howard believe their recent health problems are the result of an increase in fracking wells being drilled in the area — 110 in the past four years and another 39 projected for this year. The closest is four kilometres from their ranch. They assert that the hair loss, skin irritation and nosebleeds did not exist before the rise of fracking in

the area. For its part, Lochend Industry Producers Group (LIPG), which consists of four different oil and gas companies active in the area, says there has been no water contamination and that the risk of water or air contamination to people living within 10 kilometres from a fracking well is “exceedingly” small. The companies set surface casings — a concrete and steel barrier that line the well to prevent fracking fluid from entering the ground water — to 600 metres, double the required regulatory depths in the Lochend area. As well, the group says, the productive fracking zone is approximately 2,200 metres below the ground, far below a typical water well that sits at around 45 metres deep. But the health issues raised by the Hawkwoods could prove a cautionary tale for residents and industry in Northeast B.C., where a massive expansion of shale gas fracking is underway. “I think those are fair and legitimate questions that the public are asking,” said Geoff Morrison, the manager of B.C. operations for the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers, about health and environmental concerns. “We’re trying to do an improved job of reassuring the public about our practices so they can come to reasonable conclusions about safety. “Social licences have two components: One is doing the right thing and being regu-

Call for a moratorium

The Hawkwoods are among a group of Alberta residents who have issued an open letter to Premier Dave Hancock demanding a moratorium on horizontal fracking, similar to bans in place in Quebec, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland and Labrador.

lated in the proper way, and the other is communications. For us, in B.C. … we’ve been well-regulated and are doing the right thing.” A recent study by the Council of Canadian Academies found human health and well-being may be affected by the various environmental effects resulting from shale gas development. “Health impacts are not well understood and additional research is required,” the report concluded. Metro requested an interview with Alberta’s Ministry of Health about any health complaints near the Hawkwoods’ ranch and related to fracking, but a spokesperson was not made available. The Hawkwoods, however, aren’t only worried about their own health. Last spring and summer, the Hawkwoods say 18 of their cows died, while seven others appeared thin and unhealthy, and did not calve. A necropsy of one female bovine conducted last April — the document of the testing was viewed by two Metro reporters — noted the cause of death was undetermined, but the Hawkwoods believe water contamination was the

cause and fracking the culprit. The sudden deaths of some of the Hawkwood’s cows not only has a financial impact — each cow is worth about $1,800 — but also to the reputation of his ranch. LIPG points out that it receives very few concerns and most of those are focused on increased traffic, dust and noise associated with increased activity. They say member companies take complaints very seriously and the majority of concerns are answered to the complainant’s satisfaction. “There has been a very small group of residents who individually and collectively have expressed their opposition to resource development and we continue to work with them to address their concerns,” said LIPG in an email. However, with their growing concern over health and environmental effects, the Hawkwoods have contemplated moving away from their ranch, which has been in their family for five decades. “I’m a little bit upset about it. So where do I go? I love living in the area.”

Howard Hawkwood has experienced skin irritation, which he believes was caused by fracking activity near his ranch. A study by the Council of Canadian Academies found “additional research is required” on health impacts of fracking. MATT KIELTYKA/METRO

Pits of dead moose and loss of wildlife habitat

A pit, one of many along the Alaska Highway, contains the carcass of a moose. MATT KIELTYKA/METRO

If you pull over on northeastern B.C.’s Alaska Highway and drive a few hundred metres into the bush, you’ll smell it first. Then you’ll see flies buzzing over a deep pit. It is filled with decomposing moose carcasses. These pits dot the highway, said Carl Gitscheff of the B.C. Wildlife Federation — the final resting places of the large animals killed by the high traffic of trucks and transport trailers required by the gas industry. He estimates that more than a dozen moose are

killed daily. While Gitscheff, a trapper and hunter in the region, hasn’t noticed any mutations or internal health problems in the animals, the gas industry’s massive footprint has carved out crucial pieces of wildlife habitat. They’re competing for land because good oil and gas country, he says, is also good wildlife country. “When you have a geological formation that makes coal and oil and gas, for whatever reason it’s also

good for wildlife.” Pipeline right of ways can destroy wildlife connections between land and water, he said. He added that one solution would be boring underground to build instead of digging the surface. Exploration activity can destroy trees and scare away female animals who nest in them, leaving young marten and fisher to die. “Companies should be obligated to mitigate this. Who’s going to push that? The public.” Emily Jackson/Metro

doubt about it, and it’s to the industry’s benefit to do a better job.” — Carl Gitscheff of the B.C. Wildlife Federation On B.C.’s striving to be a world leader in environmental practices “We can harvest the resources we have and leave a lighter footprint. We can do better. We have that opportunity here in British Columbia.” — Fort St. John, B.C., mayor Lori Ackerman Emily Jackson/Metro

There are mounting calls for British Columbia to join other provinces and ease its foot off the liquefied natural gas (LNG) pedal to better study the health and environmental impacts of fracking. The Council of Canadian Academies (CCA) last week released a report concluding that there isn’t enough scientific study about the impacts of fracking to declare it safe. The independent report specifically cited concerns about well integrity, emissions and the possibility of water contamination. Quebec, Nova Scotia, and Newfoundland and Labrador have all had similar concerns and placed moratoriums on the practice. But the B.C. government has refused to do the same. “I don’t agree with (the CCA),” Rich Coleman, the minister responsible for LNG, told media. “[The report] does not give me any cause for concern because I know we already study this on a regular basis. We track it on a regular basis and we know what our stats are. I think we have it pretty much right.” Lack of confidence Not everyone shares the government’s confidence. The proposed TransCanada North Montney Mainline project in northeast B.C. would see a 301-kilometre pipeline carry natural gas through Halfway River First Nation territory. “The elders look out their back window and that line will

be right there,” said Halfway River Chief Darlene Hunter. “It’s just like me coming into your backyard and ripping up your place and being OK with that.” Striking a balance between economic development and health concerns has been a challenge for many First Nations, according to Prophet River Chief Lynette Tsakoza. “Right now it’s a big concern,” Tsakoza said. “Every nation wants economic development, and at the same time we’re trying to fight for our territory, our environment and our water. Everything.”

Fears around fracking Dr. Warren Bell, a family physician in Salmon Arm, B.C. and founding member of the Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment, believes the fears around fracking are justified. “There’s abundant evidence in the Eastern States where fracking has been going on for some time. You’ve heard of a burning drinking water scenario, and that’s because chemicals have come up far, far away from the well site simply because in this process of fracturing, you allow gases to escape. Methane plus the chemicals used in fracking, some of which are carcinogens, are starting to appear in places they shouldn’t be.” The province has commissioned its own human health assessment into oil and gas development in northeast B.C., which is currently underway by a company called Intrinsik Environmental Services. The findings are expected to be handed over to the Ministry of Health sometime this summer. Fort St. John Mayor Lori Ackerman, who wants to see increased air monitoring in her city, said the community welcomes the study.

“If there are issues, then necessity is the mother of all invention and let’s take a look at how we can correct that,” Ackerman said. “If we don’t have baseline [air quality] information, then this is a way to get it, through this study.” Critics, however, are concerned the findings may fall on deaf ears. The NDP Opposition has accused the provincial government of undermining the environment with regulation changes that allow for gas development on protected agricultural and park lands. The Liberals also attempted to scrap the environmental assessment process for sweet natural gas plants in April. But those plans were reversed within hours after government and industry reps were ejected from an LNG conference hosted by shocked and angry First Nations leaders in Fort Nelson. Forced to apologize Environment Minister Mary Polak was forced to apologize for “failing to discuss the amendment with First Nations prior to its approval.” West Coast Environmental Law Association lawyer Anna Johnston warned the steps amount to “a slide towards environmental deregulation.” That hasn’t stopped the government from trying to reassure the public that fracking — so integral to B.C.’s economic outlook — is safe. “We in British Columbia do fracking better than anybody else in the world,” Premier Christy Clark told Metro after announcing an LNG trade mission to Asia on April 30. “We learn from what we do here because, in 50 years of fracking, there hasn’t been a single reported case of water contamination in British Columbia. That’s a pretty good record.” with files from Thandi Fletcher

Tim’s says Doug, not mayor, spotted at Toronto location Rob in rehab? Coffee chain ‘confirmed’ Doug Ford was at restaurant on Tuesday, but refuses to release images Tim Hortons has “confirmed” it was Doug Ford — not the mayor — who visited a franchise location in the Junction on Tuesday morning, a spokesperson told the Star. Michelle Robichaud, manager of public relations for the coffee chain, said employees at the west-end Tim Hortons reviewed video from security cameras and concluded it was Coun. Ford who attended the restaurant. Mayor Rob Ford is purportedly in rehab. Tim Hortons is refusing to release images from its cameras to prove Rob Ford wasn’t there. “It is, for sure, Doug,” said Robichaud. “That’s all I want to say right now — that it was reviewed internally and we can confirm it’s Doug.” Rob Ford announced he was going to rehab last week to deal with an “alcohol problem,” and has reportedly made calls to a Toronto Sun columnist from a treatment facility. Sixteen-year-old Cayla Clarkson, however, claims she saw the mayor outside the Tim Hortons near Dundas Street West and Clendenan Avenue Tuesday around 9 a.m. A Tim Hortons employee who would not share her name also told the Star the mayor came into the restaurant that morning and ordered coffee and a sandwich. On Wednesday, Doug Ford told reporters “that was me,”

explaining he stopped at the Tim Hortons on his way to work at City Hall. Clarkson could not be immediately reached for comment Thursday. In an earlier interview, though, she stuck to her story, claiming she is “97 per cent sure” it was Rob Ford who went into the restaurant and then came back out and got into his vehicle. “I was standing behind his car, and I had my phone out because I was going to take a picture of him, but then he looked at me and then I kind of put my phone away, because he didn’t really seem to be the happiest person,”

U.S. sailor charged for hacking attempt A former U.S. navy nuclear systems administrator has been charged with trying to break into the Toronto Police Service computer system. There was no immediate word on Thursday on whether Nicholas Knight, of Virginia, had any success in his online attack as part of a hacking group called “Team Digi7al.” Knight, 27, worked on an aircraft carrier in the nuclear reactor department. Also charged was Illinois community college student Daniel Krueger, who studied network administration.

“The Navy quickly identified the breach and tracked down the alleged culprits through their online activity, revealing an extensive computer hacking scheme committed across the country and even abroad,” U.S. Attorney Danny Williams said in a prepared statement. The men also tried to hack into the computers of more than 30 other organizations, including the U.S. Navy, the U.S. National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Los Alamos National Labora-

Knight and Krueger have each been charged with conspiring to steal identities, obstruct justice and damage a protected computer. The scheme was detected in June 2012 by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service, when it was alerted that someone had breached the Navy’s database, according to the Northern District of Oklahoma’s Attorney’s Office. torstar news service

‘People tried to stop it.’ Woman killed by bear at oilsands site wasn’t alone A union official says a woman killed by a bear at one of Canada’s major oilsands sites was with several workers who tried to scare the animal away. The 36-year-old Suncor employee was an instrument technician, who was doing electrical work at a job site near Fort McMurray, Alta., when the bear attacked her Wednesday. “It was ... seven people that were working in a group area and she was attacked by this bear out of that group and dragged off,” Scott Doherty, a spokesman for Unifor, told The Canadian Press. “People tried to stop it and do everything they could. Obviously they are fairly horrified at what they saw and witnessed.” Doherty said the union does not believe the workers were carrying bear spray. He said they remained in the area until police and wildlife officers arrived. Another union official said the woman’s co-workers blasted air horns to scare the bear

The book is a collaborative effort by leading Canadian researchers who identify nine key trends. The authors conclude surveillance of all kinds is expanding rapidly due to society’s newly digital existence at work, rest and play. Prof. David Lyon of the Surveillance Studies Centre at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ont., cautions that there is no grand conspiracy.

The Sarfraz family pulled into a dark, deserted mall parking lot. As sunrise approached, Aisha Sarfraz, 8, was joined by other girls in a growing line outside the Indigo bookstore at Yorkdale Mall in Toronto. Just after 7 a.m., Sarfraz got to go behind the black velvet curtain. The girls (with mothers, fathers and brothers in tow) rushed past the books and into the new pink-and-white American Girl store within the Indigo. “It was fun,” said the fan. The morning ended with another line at the register and a $941 receipt. The price of the dolls, which start at $125, did not deter more than 5,000 people in Toronto and Vancouver from checking out Indigo CEO Heather Reisman’s latest business gambit last weekend. While books become a harder sell, Canada’s only national bookstore chain is stocking everything from dolls to Poppin office supplies to toasted coconut marshmallows. For fiscal 2013, its consolidated revenues slid 4.4 per cent to $892.5 million. Reisman is set to announce fiscal 2014 results on May 27. They declined to comment for this story. “They’re obviously working out what they’re going to evolve to,” said Maureen Atkinson, a retail analyst at J.C. Williams Group. “Not everything they’re testing will be a hit.” Back in 1995, U.S. book-



What we lose When Harry meets Sally again it is in the self-help section of a New York City bookstore. In the rom-com classic Billy Crystal (Harry) and Meg Ryan (Sally) eventually live happily ever after, after bumping into each other at a Shakespeare & Co. store. Whether you are looking to pick up a book or a long-lost lover, when we lose bookstores we lose the possibility of running into an old friend, or making a new one, between the book stacks. The bestselling fantasy writer and bookstore fanatic Guy Gavriel Kay recently lost his favourite local haunt, Book City. He would often pop in to see what would pop up and tickle his fancy. store giants Barnes & Noble and Borders Group planned to open superstores north of the border. Reisman was head of Cott Beverages, and was approached to lead Borders’ bid. The plan was quashed, as it did not meet Canada’s ownership policies for foreign booksellers. Borders filed for bankruptcy in 2011. Barnes & Noble’s bid also failed and it is limping towards its 100th birthday in 2017. Reisman, now 65, has proven to be remarkably resilient over the years. After the Borders deal crumbled she opened her first Indigo Books, Music & More store in 1997 in Burlington, Ont. By 2001 Indigo and Chapters merged, effectively giving the tastemaker a monopoly on Canada’s book mar-

Hopping online is just not the same. If the 1989 flick was set in 2014 perhaps Sally would have popped up on Harry’s Twitter feed. Perhaps he would have just scrolled right past her. “A lot of our culture

ket. Just like in the board game Monopoly (which you can now buy at Indigo) the dice mostly rolled in Reisman’s favour. The superstore format was a hit with consumers and by the end of 2009 the savvy businesswoman had 96 superstores and 151 small-format stores, according to Indigo’s financial reports. But the game is changing. By the end of 2013, Indigo was down to 131 small stores. By the end of May it will have closed three superstores in Toronto this year, including the World’s Biggest Bookstore. When a 22,000-square-foot Chapters store closed in Toronto in February, the founder pinned the closures partially on soaring rents. But that’s only

part of the tale. “If you are in the book business you have to be online because that’s where the customers are,” said Atkinson. Reisman has seen the writing on the wall. At least for now, physical paperback books are still the No. 1 choice for readers, making up 58 per cent of sales in 2012, followed by hardcovers at 24 per cent, according to BookNet, a nonprofit that collects data on the industry. But many of those books are now bought online. Indigo launched chapters. in 2001. In 2002, the Canadian version of, came along. Amazon is now the world’s largest online retailer, with revenue of $74.5 billion US in

Selling online cuts overhead costs, but it is cut-throat. The “Heathers Kids Pick” The Day the Crayons Quit is $19 in Indigo stores, but $13.72 in the online store for Plum Rewards users — the same price as on Price-matching seems to be working. From Oct. to Dec. 2013, Indigo’s online sales surged 19.3 per cent to a record $41.5 million, said a release. And then there’s ebooks. Indigo launched the e-reader Kobo to much fanfare in 2010. By the end of 2011 Kobo Inc. was sold for $315 million US. It’s looking like a smart move as a 2013 BookNet study found the appetite has already plateaued at about 15 per cent. A Pew Research Center report shows 32 per cent of ebook readers read them on their phones, while 78 per cent of tablet owners read them on those devices. But the competition for ebooks remains stiff. The Day the Crayons Quit is $11.99 for the Kobo edition, while’s Kindle version is $8.99. The young Aisha is a bit old-fashioned. She still buys the real thing in person at Yorkdale’s Indigo. Her mother and little brother usually tag along. The store is trying hard to appeal to mothers too, offering everything from Godiva chocolates to a 50-per-cent off sale this week on five books for Mother’s Day. But Aisha’s mother, Sarah, can’t recall ever buying anything for herself. “I’m not a reader, I’m a movie person,” she said. If Indigo is to make it to its 20-year anniversary and beyond it will have to find a way to get all those moms, dads and brothers who lined up alongside the girls for the American Girl store to buy something too.

Neighbors. Frat boy humour is always funny — but Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne bring some maturity to the fold

boys would be a nightmare in real life, but in reel life, it’s a great situation for humour. The movie is not so much a story as it is an idea played out in a series of gags, but it is funny. Raunchy, but funny.

The former is extremely funny: Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne have a comedic chemistry as good as any great vaudeville duo. The frat boys, unfortunately, are mostly indistinguishable and their scenes made me long for Animal House. Why cast the wonderful Christopher MintzPlasse and give him so little to do?

the less physical charms of Mintz-Plasse. The real charm here, though, as you say, lies with Rogen and Byrne. They have great chemistry, and are a natural match — like frat boys and bongs. Their story doesn’t hinge on the war with the neighbours, however, as much as it does the way they battle against growing up. Their need to be thought of as cool while still being responsible adults, is very funny and adds a nice subtext to what could have been simply a very silly comedy.

MB: And in this way, the movie could be seen as a sequel to Knocked Up. Both films deal with Rogen as a dad and a late bloomer to maturity. Neighbours wouldn’t be nearly as successful if the couple were older or stuffier. It hits the right note of them being almost young enough to take part in frat-house shenanigans, but not with the responsibility of a newborn.

Get set for a leaner, meaner Godzilla Return of the reptile. New Godzilla pays homage to the nightmare of the film that started it all


“It’s hardwired into our DNA, so as our caves become bigger, like 30-storey buildings, our fears become bigger, too. I think this is why we’ll always have subconscious fear of giant creatures attacking our cities.”

Chris Alexander

Godzilla director Gareth Edwards on our fear of giant creatures

Sixty years ago, a reptilian nightmare was birthed from the bowels of Tokyo to lay waste to everything in its path, roaring like atomic death and sending Japan into a pop culture swoon. The film was 1954’s Gojira, shipped to the U.S., dubbed, padded with footage of character actor Raymond (Perry Mason) Burr looking concerned and re-titled Godzilla. Sequel followed sequel, new monsters were introduced and a global phenomenon that spanned generations and multiple-medias evolved, its scaly, iconic shadow still looming large. And now, Legendary Pictures and British director

properly prepare him for the myth he would end up inheriting. “My first experience watching a Godzilla movie was when I was still at school,” Edwards, whose previous film was the innovative indie hit Monsters. “But I only saw the original black-and-white version when I was in my 30s after the British Film Institute rereleased the film on DVD. I had actually been watching it a few days before I got the call from my agent. He asked if I was sitting down, so I did. They then asked ‘Legendary have called and

asked if you’d be interested in Godzilla?’ After that, I made a point of tracking all 28 of the films down and completing my collection. I even bought the Hanna-Barbera Cartoon — that how keen I was to be a good student!” Anyone who has seen the spine-shaking theatrical trailer for Edwards’ Godzilla redux knows that Edwards and company are not fooling around. This isn’t a mere man-in-a-suit Toho Studios ’Zilla romp, nor is it the smarmy, dumbed-downdino opus of the 1998 Roland Emmerich fiasco. This Godzilla is a nightmare, akin to the original film. A tale of human folly answered by the apocalypse in the form of a massive prehistoric force of destructive nature. In short, this is a horror movie. And yet, Edwards promises not to sacrifice the story’s humanity in favour of numbing shock. “I think all filmmaking is about finding the right balance between things,” notes the director. “The spectacle is pointless if you don’t care about the outcome, but if we focus purely on the characters then it would make for a very frustrating Godzilla movie.  From my point of view, the films that got this

right like Jaws, Alien and Jurassic Park, have great characters that you really grow to care about whilst they’re slowly pulled in deeper and deeper into the situation. If you actually sit and analyze these films, the real monsters don’t turn up for about an hour, but it never feels that way because you’re so invested in what is happening at every turn.” If Godzilla does well at the box office, there will no doubt be more films to follow. And if it doesn’t?  Well, there will likely still be more, such is the enduring appeal of the character and what it represents, as Edwards explains. “I think for millions of years we’ve lived as part of nature where every day there was the constant threat that an animal would come and kill our loved ones or attack our cave. It’s only in the last few generations that we live in cities and  have pushed nature out, but that fear of the animal coming doesn’t go away. “It’s hardwired into our DNA so as our caves become bigger, like 30-storey buildings, our fears become bigger, too. I think this is why we’ll always have subconscious fear of giant creatures attacking our cities. “

Everything we thought we knew about food and exercise for the past 30 years is dead wrong. Fed Up is the film the food industry doesn’t want you to see. From Katie Couric, Laurie David (Oscar-winning producer of An Inconvenient Truth) and director Stephanie Soechtig, Fed Up will change the way you eat forever.

Starry-eyed teenager Camilla Swanson wants to follow in her mother’s footsteps and become a Broadway diva, but she’s stuck working in the kitchen of a snobby performing arts camp. Determined to change her destiny, she sneaks in to an audition for the summer showcase and lands a lead role in the play, but just as rehearsals begin, blood starts to spill.

Scarlett Johansson plays an alien in human form who is on a journey through Scotland.

From childhood friends to co-stars I Used To Be Darker. Canadian actors from a long line of thespians make their feature debut together


“I guess the fact that my parents make a living acting and directing has let me see the idea of becoming an actor as not being a totally ridiculous pursuit.” Deragh Campbell on following the family tradition of acting

Adam nayman

In the fine new independent drama I Used to Be Darker, Hannah Gross and Deragh Campbell play cousins reconnecting after a long separation. In real life, the two actresses — who hail from Toronto and Niagara-on-theLake, respectively, and are both making their feature debuts — are actually best friends. “I’ve known Deragh since I was three days old,” says Gross. “Our parents were very close friends and she was one of the first people to visit me in the hospital. She banged on the radiator and I looked on disconcertedly

mother runs the Shaw Festival, while Gross’s parents are famously Canadian acting royalty (Paul Gross and

Martha Burns). “I guess the fact that my parents make a living acting and directing has let me

acterizations are impressively complex. The pair met Baltimorebased director Matt Porterfield together in 2010 at a screening and after-party for his acclaimed film Putty Hill, and quickly became friends — as well as potential future collaborators. “Matt auditioned Hannah the next time he was in New York where Hannah was studying [acting] at NYU,” explains Campbell. “I was giving Matt notes on drafts of the script and mentioned that I could do an Irish accent, and he auditioned me via Skype and gave me the part. So it was basically the ultimate tagging along with your best friend.”

see the idea of becoming an actor as not being a totally ridiculous pursuit,” says Campbell. “Sometimes I feel like I would benefit from thinking about it as being more far-fetched.” “I think on some level we were both a little resistant,” adds Gross on the topic of getting into the family business. Although Deragh was more obviously (hesitant) than me. She went to school for creative writing and I went to school for theatre, albeit experimental theatre. That was my very small rebellion.” I Used to Be Darker is a modestly produced film, but it’s a good showcase for its young stars, whose char-

Ghosts/ Big Wreck

All Justice No Peace/Biblical

Hello Kitty/ Woods of Trees

Although the first single and title track of the fourth Big Wreck album came out a month ago, the video only surfaced last week. Ghosts will be out June 10.

Heavy psych-rock from Toronto. If you’re in Toronto for Canadian Music Week, their Saturday night gig at the Mod Club is going to be pretty, pretty crowded. Their debut album is called Monsoon Season.

You’ve probably heard about the backlash Avril Lavigne has been getting over her latest video. Black metal band Woods of Trees covers the song, taking a few, er, liberties with the lyrics. Fortunately, the video has subtitles.

You dodge, duck, and jump to the rhythms of your own music collection in this fun obstacle course game from the creators of Guitar Hero, Rock Band, and Dance Central.

See that symbol? It means you can scan this image with your Metro News app to listen to Alan’s recommended songs this week.

Here’s to the toughest job out there. Happy Mother’s Day. She’s a teacher. A nurse. A driver. A therapist. A fashion designer. A cook. A referee. And so much more. For all that they do, Workopolis salutes mothers everywhere for their hard work.

••••• Beautiful watercolour illustrations come alive in this Montreal-made role-playing game about a little girl who must gather quirky companions against the darkness of a fairy tale land. The way people speak in prose, the way the sky feels alive, the way windmills keep secrets, all help to create a world that feels fresh and fun to explore. The battles play with time in an interesting way while the monsters are curious and intriguing. Beneath it all is the poignant, thoughtful theme of a girl dealing with her father marrying someone new. Kris Abel

Cool mom Jada OK with Willow’s bedroom photo Willow Smith’s mom Jada Pinkett-Smith has strong feelings about photos of her 13-year-old daughter in bed with an adult man: She’s strongly cool with it. Pictures surfaced earlier this week of Willow Smith in bed with her friend, 20-yearold Moises Arias. It’s not as bad as it sounds at first blush: Willow’s fully clothed (though Arias is shirtless) and they don’t appear to be touching. Willow’s mom Jada, though, says the pic is fine. “Here’s the deal: There was nothing sexual about that picture or that situation,” the actress told TMZ. “You guys are projecting your trash onto it,

Meeting Justin Bieber was superbad, Seth Rogen says Melinda Taub

Metro World News

It’s on: Seth Rogen has become one of the first celebrities to call Justin Bieber out on his crap.

The comedian says his Bieber-related distaste goes back to the early days of Bieber fever. Bieber and Rogen were both backstage at a German talk show when word came that the singer had requested to meet the comedian. “I was like, ‘Sure, I’ll meet him,’” Rogen told Howard Stern. “So I went outside to meet him and he was acting like I asked to meet HIM! It was very nonchalant, ‘Yo man. What’s up?’ and I was like, ‘What the

f—, I don’t give a f— about (you), I don’t want to meet you. Don’t act all nonplussed to meet me. I didn’t want to meet you. I was totally cool not meeting you ... But I was like, fine, I wouldn’t have said anything, I was like, ‘He’s a bit of a motherf—er.’” Yesterday, Bieber responded via Twitter, casting the incident in a somewhat different light: “Seth Rogan (sic) sorry I didnt (sic) bow down when I asked 2 meet u was probably a bit shy and

There’s never a dull moment when you have dinner with an Aussie winemaker. When Neil McGuigan is at your table you can multiply the fun by at least 1,000. I met up with him earlier this week in Halifax at the Agricola Street Brasserie — the city’s hottest new resto. The first time we shared a glass, it was on his home turf in New South Wales’s beautiful Hunter Valley. McGuigan’s got a lot to be happy about. He makes the best-selling red in Australia and has been named Winemaker of the Year by the U.K.’s prestigious International Wine & Spirit Competition three times. Here in Canada he’s best known for championing the versatility of the white sémillon grape and creating bright, easy-drinking wines that pour well above their price point. The 2012 McGuigan Black Label Shiraz ($10.99) is a mini fruit bomb with ripe berry flavours, smooth tannins and a juicy finish. It’s got enough body to fight it out with grilled meats, yet is playful enough to wash down barbecued hamburgers and hotdogs. PRICES REFLECT THE RANGE ACROSS THE COUNTRY. SOME PRODUCTS MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE IN ALL PROVINCES.

Only the best for Mom: Twice Baked Whitebait Souffles THE FREE RANGE COOK Annabel Langbein

1. Preheat oven to 180 C. Generously butter six 1 cup ramekins and put in fridge to chill.

2. In a medium saucepan, melt

the butter until sizzling but not browned. Stir in the flour and cook, stirring, for about 2 minutes until the mixture forms a smooth paste. Whisk in the milk, nutmeg, salt and pepper and lemon zest and bring back to a boil, stirring constantly, until the sauce thickens.

3. Add lemon juice and whisk

until smooth. Remove from heat and beat in egg yolks one at a time. Taste for seasoning — it should taste highly seasoned. Fold through whitebait or smoked salmon and herbs.

4. Place egg whites in a clean,

dry bowl and beat until they form soft peaks. Add one quarter of the egg whites to the whitebait mixture and stir until well mixed. Then fold the remaining egg whites gently through the mixture.

5. Fill the buttered ramekins to

the top, then run your thumb around the inside edge of the dishes so the soufflés puff evenly. Set the ramekins in a deep roasting dish and pour boiling water around them until it comes about halfway up the sides of the dishes. This water bath will help the soufflés cook

evenly. Bake until they are lightly puffed, browned and just set in the centre – about 1520 minutes. (The soufflés can be cooked right through at this point if you prefer. Cook for about 20-25 minutes total.)

6. Remove soufflés from oven

and the water bath and leave to cool. They can be covered and refrigerated for up to 2 days. When you are ready to serve them, preheat oven to 220 C. Pour 1 tbsp of cream over each soufflé. Place on a tray and cook until they are risen, crusty and golden — about 12 minutes from refrigerated. WATCH THE ANNABEL LANGBEIN FREE RANGE COOK MONDAY TO THURSDAY AT 5:30 P.M. EST, STARTING APRIL 28 ON GUSTO TV, CANADA’S NEW FOOD & LIFESTYLE CHANNEL. VISIT GUSTOTV.COM FOR FULL PROGRAM LINE-UP AND MORE GREAT RECIPE IDEAS.

Ingredients • 50 g butter, plus extra to butter ramekins or cups • 1/2 cup flour • 1 3/4 cups milk • pinch of ground nutmeg • 1 tsp salt • generous shake of white pepper • finely grated zest of 1 lemon • 4 tbsp lemon juice • 5 egg yolks • 1 cup whitebait or 1 cup finely chopped smoked salmon • 2 tbsp finely chopped soft herbs such as basil • 5 egg whites To finish • 6 tbsp cream

This recipe serves six. ANNABEL LANGBEIN

Sweet! Honey Vanilla Panna Cotta 1. Place 1 cup of the cream in a

saucepan with the vanilla pod, honey and sugar and heat, stirring, until the sugar has fully dissolved. Simmer for 1 minute.

2. Remove pot from heat and

lift out the vanilla pod. Split pod open and scrape out seeds. Add seeds back into the cream mix and whisk to combine (rinse leftover pod and store it in sugar container — it will add nice flavour to the sugar).

This recipe serves six to eight. ANNABEL LANGBEIN


Place the cold water in a small bowl and sprinkle the

gelatin over the top, stirring until it is fully absorbed. Add the soaked gelatin to the hot cream, stirring until it is fully dissolved. You will know when it is dissolved because there will be no visible granules.

4. Cool the mixture for 15-20

minutes, stirring often (it needs to be cool before the buttermilk is added or it will split). Lightly whip the remaining cup of cream and stir it into the cooled mixture, then whisk in the buttermilk until the mixture is smooth.

5. Divide the mixture between 6-8 serving glasses. Cover and refrigerate until set. This should take about 3-4 hours or up to 24 hours. To serve, divide Sunshine Fruit Topping over the top of the set panna cottas.

Serve chilled.


Topping: Wash, peel and finely dice 3 peaches. Mix with pulp of 4 passionfruit and 1 tbsp liquid honey. ANNABEL LANGBEIN, GUSTOTV.COM

Ingredients • 2 cups cream, divided in half • 1 vanilla pod, split length wise, or 2 tsp vanilla extract • 1/2 cup honey • 1/2 cup sugar

• 4 tbsp cold water • 4 tsp unflavoured gelatin • 2 cups buttermilk To serve • Sunshine Fruit Topping

UBC preps for first round of NAIA Championship

Trotz interested in ’Nucks coaching job The Canucks need a head coach. Barry Trotz is out of a job. Will the two parties fill each other’s needs? GETTY IMAGES FILE

NHL. Former Predators bench boss hasn’t spoken to Canucks about the position CAM TUCKER

The Vancouver Canucks are in need of a head coach, and Barry Trotz has admitted an interest in the vacant job. Trotz, who in the middle of April was relieved of his head coaching duties with the

Nashville Predators, the organization he had been with for 15 seasons, spoke on Team 1040 radio on Thursday. “I’m interested in every job that’s out there right now. Obviously I have a home in British Columbia, in the Vernon area,” Trotz told the sports talk radio station. “I’ve watched the Canucks organization a little bit from afar and played against them in recent years and there’s a lot of quality people there, so absolutely. I’m interested in every opportunity right now.” The Canucks, with Trevor Linden as the club’s new

@lmarieadeline #SecretRevealed

president of hockey operations, fired John Tortorella last week, following just one season with him behind the bench. Trotz, who had 557 career wins as head coach in Nashville, said he has not had any contact with the Canucks organization about the job. “They have other issues to deal with right now,” he said. “At this point, I am in absolutely no hurry to do anything. I’ve been contacted by a few teams. As I said, I’m in no rush to do anything right now. Everybody has their own time frame. There’s a couple of teams that have basically said,

‘Give us some time and you’re on our short list.’ So that’s where I am.” The Canucks are also in the process of finding a new general manager. Darren Dreger of TSN reported Thursday that he heard Jim Benning, currently an assistant GM with the Boston Bruins, met with the Canucks on Wednesday, and is considered the frontrunner for the job in Vancouver. “Some believe Benning is getting the Canucks job and Linden is simply waiting until the conclusion of Round 2 to make it official,” Dreger reported on Twitter.

Managing in baseball can be tough enough — thinking ahead, dissecting scenarios and playing the percentages. It’s not easy. For a stretch late this past winter, not only was Terry McKaig trying to balance the intricacies of that sport as the manager of the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds men’s baseball team, but he was also trying to preserve his program from losing its varsity status, which was a definite possibility when the school undertook its contentious sports review. “There were a lot of days this year where I was too busy, whether it was working on our proposals for the review process,” McKaig, named the NAIA West manager of the year for 2014, said Thursday. McKaig credits the leaders on the team — players like Sebastian Wong, Cam Firth and Matt Spillman — and assistant coaches Shawn Corness, Wayne Corness and Fred Beitler for helping keep the team focused on baseball while its manager was ensconced in paperwork. The team was among a group of four that maintained varsity status, but are now categorized as having more time to pursue hybrid funding opportunities. The Thunderbirds, even with the sport review distraction looming over them earlier in the season, had a 32-11 overall record and have earned a berth in the opening round of the NAIA Championship, which for them, begins Monday in Santa Clarita, Calif.

SPORTS WEEKEND, May 9-11, 2014

Bruins take a bite out of Habs at home NHL playoffs. Boston rookie Matt Fraser slots OT winner in Montreal to even their series at 2-2 Rookie Matt Fraser scored 1:19 into overtime to give the Boston Bruins a 1-0 victory over the Montreal Canadiens and even their Eastern Conference semifinal playoff series on Thursday night. Fraser, called up Wednesday from AHL Providence and playing his first career NHL playoff game, jumped into a scramble in front of goalie Carey Price’s net and slid the puck under him into the net. Johnny Boychuk’s point shot had taken a high hop off the end boards and Price and defenceman Mike Weaver had trouble controlling the bouncing puck. The victory evened the best-of-seven series at 2-2 with Game 5 set for Saturday night

in Boston. The Bruins outshot Montreal 34-33 in an intense, sometimes nervously played game that was less a goaltending duel between Price and Tuukka Rask as a match of determined, defensive teams. The teams played their first

scoreless period in regulation time of the series in a tightchecking first marked mainly by icings and missed passes. Boston’s Carl Soderberg had the best chance in the final minute after P.K. Subban’s blind back pass was intercepted, but Price looked to get a piece of it as it went off the cross bar. Another goal-less period followed as shooters misfired, particularly Max Pacioretty on a setup from Thomas Vanek, and both goalies held their ground. Each team went on the power play once, but even that failed to break the deadlock. The Canadiens went on the attack in the third, peppering the Boston net and outshooting the Bruins 14-7. But the Bruins got a power play and Reilly Smith hit a goalpost, only to see Brian Gionta stoned by Rask alone in front of the net at the other end a moment later. The Canadian Press

April 21 - May 21 You may believe that if you don’t act soon your big chance will pass but it isn’t true. The sense of urgency you feel is an illusion and what happens over the next three days will prove it.


May 22 - June 21 You know there is a flaw in your plans but you are tempted to ignore it. If you push ahead regardless, you are sure to regret it. Work out where it is you have gone wrong first.


June 22 - July 23 What you hear today may annoy you but is it worth getting worked up about? If you allow yourself to get angry over what others say, they will have succeeded in their aim.


July 24 - Aug. 23 Make sure you do not commit yourself to anything you cannot back out of later. Most times your instincts can be trusted but this may be the one time when they let you down.


Aug. 24 - Sept. 23 Don’t change anything for the sake of it today because you will only have to change it back again later. It might be better to stick with what you know about, even if it is not what you want. Wait and see what the weekend brings.


Sept. 24 - Oct. 23 You should expect some deception over the next 24 hours, even from people you think you can trust. Don’t hold grudges against people who let you down. It happens.


Oct. 24 - Nov. 22 It does not matter how convinced you may be that you are in the right and others are in the wrong. You won’t get far if you insist they come round to your way of thinking. Look for a compromise solution.


Nov. 23 - Dec. 21 You will be caught off by something you did not expect today. You have taken certain things for granted when you had no reason to do so. Admit you made a mistake and do what you can to put it right.


Dec. 22 - Jan. 20 Do what you can to bring people together today but if it proves too tough a task just back off and let them fight it out. Do not get involved on a personal level yourself. If you choose sides you’ll be the loser.


Jan. 21 - Feb. 19 Make sure you have all the facts because it is the only way you can be certain you are not being deceived. The planets warn that unscrupulous people won’t hesitate to cheat you.
