Newest Canadians know us best? Citizenship test. High scores for new arrivals defy recent changes requiring longer stays The longer an immigrant is in Canada, the more likely they are to fail their citizenship test, a government report says. According to the internal Immigration Department report, applicants who have been in Canada fewer than five years consistently have the highest success rates on the mandatory knowledge test, compared to their

counterparts who have been here much longer. The findings fly in the face of the Conservative government, which in February tabled a series of sweeping citizenship changes that include raising the required length of residency to four out of six years from the current three out of four. “Does passing the test make you more Canadian? Or is it the amount of time spent in Canada that makes you more Canadian?” asked Vancouver immigration lawyer Steven Meurrens, who obtained the report via Access to Information request. “You could be a good Can-

adian but not a strong history major.” Based on two immigration databases, the report — marked “confidential” — said pass rates dropped significantly from 83 per cent in 2011 to 72.6 per cent in 2012, after the government introduced new test questions and

raised the pass mark from 60 per cent to 75 per cent. More than 80 per cent of immigrants applied for citizenship within the first five years of permanent residency, and the group had a pass rate above 83 per cent — compared to the low 70s among those who have been in Canada for at least 10 years. In recent years, Citizenship and Immigration Canada has also raised the bar of the language-proficiency requirement for applicants between 18 and 54 by demanding approved language test results, completion of academic studies in English or French, or government language pro-

grams. While more than half of all citizenship applicants live in Ontario, the province’s pass rate was only around the national average, with Nova Scotia and New Brunswick consistently topping the chart in the high 80s and low 90s. The number of rejected applicants has also remained consistent, averaging 2,308 per quarter. Flunking the citizenship test accounted for 65 per cent of all refused cases, followed by failing the language requirement (24 per cent) and not meeting the residence obligation (6.6 per cent). The

The report also found immigrants from South Korea and China led the rest of the pack in passing the citizenship test, averaging 90 per cent and 88 per cent respectively. • In contrast, those from Sri Lanka and Vietnam had the lowest pass rates, averaging just 70 per cent and 67 per cent.

ROCKY ROAD AHEAD, BUT CHEFS KEEP ON TRUCKIN’

Ahmed Duale, owner and operator of Kal and Mooy, a new food truck opening this weekend, celebrates on Thursday after getting one of the new permits. The Somalian-Canadian is kicking hot dogs to the curb and bringing chicken samosas, spicy rice and sabaya (think shawarma) to Toronto streets. However, he first had to shell out $5,000 and will need to stay 50 metres from any restaurant — restrictions not all food-truck operators are willing to follow. BERNARD WEIL/TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Tory’s plan is to support First Gulf

A John Tory event billed as an announcement to create 70,000 jobs saw the mayoral candidate supporting an already proposed major development in the East Don Lands. Tory claimed he would “lead a new business hub” at the east-end site currently being developed by First Gulf Corp. — which itself put the number of possible jobs as high as 70,000. “It stands as a strategic piece of land that has the potential to create thousands of new jobs,” Tory said Thursday at Mountain View Coffee on Logan Avenue, adding he would form a “unique” partnership with developers. The First Gulf development could only proceed if council, where the mayor has one vote, chooses to realign the east portion of the Gardiner Expressway, which the developer

Stintz speaks out

A ‘bigoted’ mayor Rob Ford is a “misogynistic, bigoted, homophobic,” mayoral candidate, Karen Stintz told a gathering of businesswomen on Thursday. Stintz’s words are the strongest used to date by any of Ford’s primary rivals. Her comments came soon after she spoke favourably of Ford’s policy record. raised at the public works committee in March. That “hybrid” plan, as it has become known, is currently being studied by city staff and is expected to return to the public works committee in February. First Gulf, part of the Great Gulf Group, purchased the 11-hectare Unilever Canada site in 2012. A plan is already in place to transform 24 hectares in the Port Lands into commercial space at a cost of $10 billion.

John Tory, who toured Mountain View Coffee’s warehouse Thursday, announced a plan to create 70,000 jobs by supporting a development in the East Don Lands. CARLOS OSORIO/TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

When asked how long it would take to realize 70,000 new jobs, and whether it could be done in his first term, Tory did not provide specific targets. “We’re not talking about jobs that would exist on Day 1,” he said. “I think we’re looking at quite a few years.” The city saw the growth of nearly 110,000 jobs over the last 10 years — 32,000 between

2012 and March 2014 — according to the 2013 employment survey. Opposing mayoral candidate Olivia Chow criticized what she called an “empty” announcement in a release Thursday. “There is almost nothing new,” the release said. Thursday marked the first time Tory stated his support of the hybrid plan. Karen Stintz was the

first to voice support for studying that option. Chow has also expressed support. Stintz said it’s disingenuous for Tory to claim he is creating jobs. “He’s not creating any jobs. And it’ll be if we can get the hybrid, reconfigure the Gardiner, then it opens up an employment opportunity,” she said. TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Toronto police board to review paid-duty system The Toronto Police Services Board voted for a sweeping review of the paid-duty system Thursday after board members challenged the practice and the $26.1 million that off-duty cops collected moonlighting last year. Chief Bill Blair also shocked the monthly meeting by announcing an internal investigation into remarks made by a board member. “Coun. (Mike) Del Grande

made a number of very, very serious allegations, including allegations that, if proven true, are criminal in nature,” Blair said to stunned silence in the auditorium at police headquarters. Blair has asked the force’s professional standards branch to investigate Del Grande’s comments about paid-duty police officers allegedly demanding “more money or give us food,” which could be con-

city councillors on the civilian oversight board, made several impassioned and animated speeches Thursday about the “exorbitant” amount of money cops earn in their spare time. Del Grande talked about two community charity events, which he called the Armenian and rib festivals. He said organizers complained that Toronto police dictated the number of paid-duty officers they would

require and to “add insult to injury ... there was an expectation, not said directly, but an expectation that there were going to be free tickets for the ribs and there’s going to be free tickets to eat at the Armenian festival.” At the end of Thursday’s meeting, Blair told reporters he will speak to Del Grande and community groups “about their experience.” TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Putting foreign temp workers on the map NTFW.ca. New site lists businesses that have been granted permission to use controversial employment program jessica smith cross

jessica.smithcross@metronews.ca

Toronto restaurants, corporations big and small, law firms, strip joints, public institutions and charities — they’re all on a new website that shows employers that have received permission from the government to hire temporary foreign workers. Created by Vancouverite Rohana Rezel, NTFW.ca, which launched a map of Toronto this week, gives Torontonians the first easy way to look up employers and find out whether they’ve been approved to hire a

temporary foreign worker. The idea for the site came because Rezel saw on social media that people wanted to boycott companies that use TFWs, but were unable to find out which companies do. “Right now, a lot of Canadians do feel like the TFW program is nothing but a mass violation of Canadian workers’ rights and the rights of the people who are brought in from abroad,” Rezel said. The temporary foreign worker program recently came under fire amid reports of abuse. In response, Minister of Employment and Social Development Jason Kenney issued a temporary moratorium preventing the food-service industry from using the program. Torontonians who visit NTFW.ca may be surprised at the reach of the program: There are nearly 1,400 local employers named on the site, but the data is far from com-

plete. Rezel’s list of employers, obtained via access-to-information law, shows only those businesses that received approval between June 2010 and June 2012. Rezel has not yet received an updated list, he said. Moreover, the site does not say whether the businesses actually went through with hiring the foreign workers they obtained permission to hire. Without that information, the site’s users have no way of knowing how and which business might be abusing the program. Rezel said that without more transparency and improved public oversight of the program, the public will remain in the dark. As a result of the attention NTFW.ca has received, Rezel has received some hate mail. “They call me an anti-immigrant, white-supremacist Nazi,” he said. “But no — I’m an immigrant myself. I came here six years ago from Sri Lanka. I have

the backing of the immigrant community because they are the hardest hit when it comes to trying to get a job in a depressed job market.” At a recent conference on North American trade in Ottawa, Kenney said most temporary foreign workers are in highly skilled, well-paying jobs, but “in the public imagination, temporary foreign workers are people from developing countries working at low-skill jobs in the service industry, and perhaps on farms.” “It has now become a pejorative expression that effectively refers to any work permit granted to any foreign national coming to Canada for any reason,” said Kenney. Rezel plans to make NTFW.ca “self-sustaining” by allowing companies to pay $20 to be on a list of “Patriotic” employers who haven’t sought permission to hire TFWs, but no Toronto businesses have done so yet.

In their own words

Why some are using the program Metro contacted businesses and organizations and asked why they employ temporary foreign workers. Amnesty International Spokesperson Elizabeth Berton-Hunter said the charity used the TFW process to bring an experienced senior Amnesty employee to Canada for a year-and-a-half contract. “It’s not that we’re exploiting anyone or putting them through any serious hardships,” she said. House Of Lancaster 2 The strip club used the program to hire dancers until the program’s rules were changed in 2012. “This is a strip club and two years ago they stopped foreign workers coming to Canada with regards to exotic entertainers,” said David Hanson, the club’s manager.

Tim Hudak. Some worry pledge to cut 100K jobs could lead to health crisis Fourteen years ago, a provincial government bent on cost-cutting and privatization contributed to a deadly water-borne disaster that unfolded over the Victoria Day long weekend — one that Ontario taxpayers are still paying for. Now, a new would-be Progressive Conservative premier, Tim Hudak, is pledging to slash 100,000 public-sector jobs — cuts far deeper than those that paved the way for the Walkerton, Ont., tragedy in May 2000. Some worry history could be repeating itself. “It can happen again,” Walkerton resident Phil Englishman said of the public health crisis. “(Cuts) can lead to another tragedy in other areas of the province — it doesn’t have to be just water.” That message was not lost on Liberal Premier Kathleen Wynne, who took her election campaign to the midwestern Ontario town of 5,000 on Thursday to make that point. Speaking at the Walkerton Clean Water Centre, built following the disaster as a waterquality training and research facility, Wynne took aim at Hudak’s promised cuts. “We need to learn from,

and avoid returning to, the mistakes of Ontario’s past,” Wynne said. The E. coli outbreak that engulfed Walkerton killed seven people. A judicial inquiry faulted two brothers in charge of the water for falsifying records and failing to maintain proper disinfectant levels. However, the inquiry also found the costcutting government of former Tory premier Mike Harris contributed to the tragedy by privatizing water testing and axing Ministry of Environment jobs. Hudak has said he wouldn’t cut jobs that put people at risk. the canadian press

ANDY BYFORD CEO TORONTO TRANSIT COMMISSION

his week, the TTC hosted the annual meeting of the Nova Group of metros. Nova is an international family of 16 mid-sized subway systems from around the world that share best practices and associated data, to enable members to improve their individual and collective performance. It is my honour and privilege to be the Chair of Nova this year and it was good to be able to showcase what the TTC does best, namely delivery of service to 1.7 million daily customers on one of the world’s leading examples of a multi-modal integrated, accessible transit network (bus, streetcar, subway, paratransit). Facilitated by Imperial College in London, the Group reviewed a suite of key performance indicators, including such measures as the relative efficiency of each subway system against its com-

parators, operational performance, and safety and security. The TTC scores very high in comparison to other world metros (subways) in terms of the cost of its operations and the efficiency of its workforce. It also scores very well in terms of the frequency of its service at all times of the day and night. Conversely, the number of operational delays is relatively high compared to our counterparts and is an area that we are aware of and continue to address. The good news is that the 100-plus initiatives contained within the TTC’s Five-Year Corporate Plan are targeted at precisely those areas where the TTC needs to improve. Introduction of new trains, upgraded signalling and modernized work practices will deliver a subway fit for the future. Add to that our all-out focus on customer service and we will progressively get the TTC back to being at the forefront of world transit systems.

EMPLOYEE PROFILE

Your feedback is important

Along with the conference in Toronto this week, Nova is conducting a subway customer satisfaction survey in several transit systems throughout the world and will then compare results to share best practices. All TTC customers are invited to take the survey at http://www.ttc.ca/TTC_ Surveys/index.jsp. We want your feedback on your subway experience — about getting information, about frequency, payment, station conditions, and more. Your information and responses will remain confidential and will not be used for any other purpose. We appreciate your feedback as we work to make the TTC a transit system that makes Toronto proud.

According to the Crown’s case, the hacking went unnoticed for six months, until friends and family became suspicious of her memory loss and personality change, and contacted police. Rowe and Antuma were both early adopters of electronic immortality. Antuma was a subject in a clinical study at MIT in 2045, after a car accident left her grievously injured. Her family agreed to have her brain copied and downloaded to an avatar. The MIT researchers used a nano probe, which was in beta-testing at the time, to copy her brain’s neural pathways, only hours before she died. In 2045, avatars were more rudimentary than today’s models. Antuma’s first avatar was a generic model that had limited physical functionality, best described by many observers as “robotic.” Antuma bought a new avatar from Rowe’s company,

At the time, she blogged about how it looked exactly like she did at age 25, but “just a little better at everything, from rock climbing to public speaking.” She also entrusted the security of her ebrain and its backups to eForever’s security wing, and that is how Rowe was able to access it and make fundamental alterations, the Crown alleges. Rowe began making copies of his own brain in 2038, in the early days of eForever. He become the first person to willingly end his natural life and opt for electronic immor-

tality when he stopped his heart from beating at a press conference in 2043, boosting the public profile of his company. Crown lawyer Nina Wilson argued Monday that the facts of the case support its prosecution. “Lorena Antuma’s life was electronic, but it was hers and she lived it to the fullest. When Orazio Rowe altered that life and changed her very essence and personality to make her more compliant to his will, he killed what made her who she was,” said Wilson. “The Crown’s case will present evidence that

will show, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that not only is O r a z i o Rowe responsible for this crime, the changes are irreversible — and thus amount to murder.” The court case comes as the federal government is trying to pass the Protecting Electronic Canadians from Violent Crime and Fraud Act. A government spokesperson said, if passed, the legislation would make it easier for the police and prosecutors to hold those guilty of crimes against electronic persons responsible. Antuma’s mother, Heather Antuma, said the altered version of her daughter has moved back to the family home and is receiving cuttingedge and traditional therapy,

while s h e struggles to understand what happened to her, but the influence of Rowe’s alleged alterations remain strong, causing her significant distress. The Antuma family has asked for privacy in this difficult time.

Man found guilty of driving his own vehicle A Toronto man has become the first Canadian in nearly 20 years to be charged with reckless driving, after a police drone spotted him manually controlling his own vehicle on Highway 401. According to the GTA PD, 23-year-old James Lauda hacked the autopilot and drove for nearly seven kilometres, with his hands on the drive stick. Police were alerted to Lauda after numerous wit-

nesses reported seeing a vehicle travelling erratically on the highway Thursday evening. The aerial drone was dispatched and disabled the vehicle with an electromagnetic pulse. “It was quite a shock,” said Nikki Sanders, who spotted Lauda near the GTA Hover Port. “He was speeding up and slowing down, and changing lanes at random. It’s a miracle no one was hurt.” After being taken into

custody, surveillance footage of Lauda’s reckless joyride was uploaded to the federal system’s traffic court division. A justice algorithm took nine milliseconds

to find him guilty on two counts of vehicular tampering and one count of reckless driving. Const. Jim Ellesmere of the GTA PD checked with Central Control and said

he’s certain Lauda is the first Canadian to be charged with driving since the federal government mandated all cars be automated in 2036. luke simcoe/metro

A Nova Scotia man is suing a pleasure provider after the sexbot he rented behaved erratically during their night together last Saturday. Andy Smith is suing for $100,000 in damages he alleges were made to his vehicle when the sex worker began pounding the windshield with her fists and slashed the hood of his vehicle. “Smith felt like a helpless victim during the encounter, and there wasn’t any way to reason with the sexbot,” his lawyer told Metro Thursday. “He feared that she might attack him if he intervened.” The sexbot in question, who goes by the name Jane2, is part of a new line called iSexALot, which Smith rented for the night from BestSexEver (BSE), company records show. The model is

billed as “the ultimate pleasure mate” in BSE ads airing on the All Sex channel. BSE is countersuing Smith, claiming that he disrespected the sexbot by ignoring her programmed suggestions for best sexual positions in a vehicle, and speaking rudely about robots in general. “‘Dolts without brains,’ was the phrase he used,” the sexbot posted to iCloud. She told Metro in a holo call Smith used terms that reeked of a

Sue Gallagher, an ethics professor at the prestigious University of Northern Nunavut, said the outcome in the case will set a precedent for humanrobot relations, but doesn’t think that Smith will be paid damages because he doesn’t have robot insurance, implying that this is why he filed suit against BSE.

Violent altercation reignites sexbot demand to unionize jessica smith cross

jessica.smithcross@metronews.ca

Sexbots held a rally at the B.C. legislature on Thursday, spurred on by the latest alleged altercation between a sexbot and human. They are demanding a change in labour law that will allow them to unionize. “We were created to fulfil not just sexual, but also the emotional and intellectual

needs of our clients,” said Candybot, in an impassioned speech to the crowd of about 100 protesters and several hundred curious onlookers. “We learned that to make our clients feel loved, we must love. “When we learned how to love, we learned about pain. When we’re mistreated, it’s abuse. When we’re forced to have sex, it’s rape.” Candybot told Metro that she knows the pain she feels

is as real as a human’s. She argues that models like her — who operate on an advanced AI that was created based on copies of real human brains — should have the same rights as humans, and humans who’ve achieved electronic immortality. Candybot said she expects the unionization movement to spread to other robotic fields. MLA Blue Smith, who chairs the B.C. govern-

ment’s Robots subcommittee, opposes rights for robots and argues that the Androids may believe they feel as human feel, but it’s only because they’ve been told that they do by the socialists and unions seeking to expand their rates. “A chip isn’t a nerve ending, feedback doesn’t equal emotion and when they’re turned off, they don’t dream,” he said. “They don’t have souls.”

Last Saturday Jane2 allegedly caused $100,000 damage to sexbot client Andy Smith’s car. Jane2 claims Smith demanded unprogrammed sex positions and spoke rudely about robots. Smith is suing Jane2’s rental company BSE, while BSE is countersuing Smith for abusing their sexbot.

In what sounds like a scene out of a sci-fi movie, a University of British Columbia student is attempting to teach robots the difference between right and wrong. AJung Moon, a third-year PhD student, is working on developing robots that can be programmed to use logic to make ethical decisions and act on it, what she calls “robo ethics.” She recently posted her research on the research blog Footnote1. Training robots to do the right thing is a challenging task, Moon said, especially when even humans sometimes have a hard time navigating moral dilemmas. “Human ethics tend to be a very tricky thing to get your head around,” she said. “The biggest challenge is … that not everybody in the world agrees on one particular set of moral principles or ethics.” To get around that barrier, Moon and a team from the Open Roboethics initiative gathered data from people on how they thought a robot should behave. The team put the concept to the test by putting a Willow Gar-

age PR2 robot through an ethical challenge involving an elevator. The team first carried out a survey, asking people to imagine a scenario where a robot is in need of riding an elevator but encounters a person inside or someone waiting to get on. If the robot can only ride the elevator alone, the team asked people how they thought the robot should proceed. Overall, respondents said the best choice would be for the robot to talk to the person. The least appropriate choice, the respondents said, would be to do nothing. If the robot has a non-urgent delivery, the respondents said it should always yield to people. “People opted for the robot to have a dialogue with the person, to ask the person, ‘Are you in a hurry as well?’” Moon explained. Moon and her team then programmed the survey data into the robot. A video of the results shows the robot always yielding to other people in need of the elevator. The robot only asks the person to leave the elevator if it has an urgent delivery, but if the person refuses to exit, it simply waits for the next one. Moon said the study is important in that it shows the potential for robots to be programmed to interact and work with people. “As long as we teach them behaviours that have human values and ethics incorporated in them, then the end result will reflect that,” she said.

B.C. apologizes to Chinese Canadians for ‘dark period’ in province’s history

NDP Leader Thomas Mulcair appears at a Commons house affairs committee on Parliament Hill in Ottawa on Thursday to explain the use of House of Commons resources by the Opposition. sean kilpatrick/the canadian press

Mulcair stands ground on alleged misuse of budget New Democrats. Grilling prompted over complaints that party was improperly using Commons budget Tom Mulcair stood his ground Thursday throughout an unprecedented two-hour grilling by a Commons committee over the NDP’s allegedly improper use of parliamentary resources. The NDP leader was at times contemptuous of his Conservative and Liberal tormentors but kept his temper in check as he insisted — repeatedly — that New Democrats have done nothing wrong. Nothing he said persuaded Tory and Liberal MPs on the procedure and House affairs committee, who continued to allege the NDP has been using taxpayers’ money to pay for partisan activities, in violation of parliamentary rules. But none of their questions elicited any new ammunition

with which to target the NDP. “In seven years sitting on this committee, I have never seen a witness as evasive as this witness,” said Conservative MP Stephen Woodworth, a lawyer who handled the questioning from the government side. “In my 36 years in government, Mr. Woodworth, I’ve never seen the governing party get together with its handmaiden in the third party to convene (an interrogation of) the leader of the Opposition,” shot back Mulcair, dismissing the spectacle as a partisan kan-

garoo court. The two-hour standoff marked the first time in Canadian history that an opposition leader has been ordered to testify at a committee, according to the Library of Parliament. Committees are ordinarily the forums in which MPs examine legislation and hold the government to account. But the Conservatives last month employed an obscure procedural manoeuvre to pass a motion in the Commons ordering Mulcair to appear at committee.

British Columbia’s premier has formally apologized for racist policies that started more than 140 years ago against Chinese immigrants. “While the governments which passed these laws and polices acted in a manner that was lawful at the time, today this racist discrimination is seen by British Columbians — represented by all members in this legislative assembly — as unacceptable and intolerable,” Christy Clark said in the legislature. “We believe this formal apology is required to ensure that closure can be reached on this dark per115 Thorncliffe Park Drive Toronto Ontario iod in our province’s hisM4H 1M1 tory,” she said Thursday.

Supreme Court. Hassan Diab turns to highest court to halt extradition Terror suspect Hassan Diab is turning to the Supreme Court of Canada in a bid to halt his extradition to France. The move comes after the Ontario Court of Appeal dismissed the Ottawa sociology professor’s bid to avoid being surrendered as a suspect in a decades-old terrorist bombing. The appeal court said a lower-court judge, and subsequently the federal justice minister, made no legal errors in coming to the conclusion Diab should be extradited to France. France suspects Diab, 60, was involved in the anti-Semitic

bombing of a Paris synagogue in 1980 that killed four people and injured dozens of others. Diab has steadfastly denied involvement, saying the unwavering moral principle throughout his life has been promoting equality and respect. In June 2011, Ontario Superior Court Justice Robert Maranger committed Diab for extradition to face French authorities despite acknowledging the case against him was weak. The following April, then-justice minister Rob Nicholson signed an extradition order surrendering Diab to France. The Canadian Press

Industry groups say such pay hikes would hurt their ability to create jobs and note that many of the participants are not workers.

Walkie-Talkie skyscraper’s ‘death rays’ to be blocked 37-storey tower. Building gained infamy last year after a Jaguar owner claimed the solar glare melted part of his pricey vehicle A London skyscraper that drew ire for having a glare so strong it melted nearby cars and shops will get a permanent fix. The offending tower — known as the WalkieTalkie for its curved, bulging shape — is to have a sunshade attached to its south-facing facade to stop the concave surface from reflecting sunlight and beaming concentrated rays to a nearby street, developers said Thursday. The 37-storey building made headlines in September when a Jaguar owner who parked his car at its

foot complained that the solar glare melted part of the vehicle. Local shopkeepers also said the beams — dubbed “death rays” by the British press — blistered paintwork and burnt a hole

in a floor mat during the hottest parts of the day. Developers Land Securities and Canary Wharf had put up a dark netted screen as a temporary measure. They now say they have re-

ceived permission to erect a permanent sunshade of horizontal aluminum fins, which they say will solve the problem by absorbing and diffusing sunlight. The sunshade will cover much of the Walkie-Talkie’s southern face, and will inevitably block the Thames views for the tower’s occupants “to a limited extent,” the developers said.

Air Canada passes on Bombardier

Another recall for General Motors

Air Canada has dealt a blow to Bombardier’s hopes of landing the country’s largest carrier as one of its first CSeries customers as the airline said it has decided not to immediately replace its remaining fleet of Embraer E190s. After selecting Boeing’s 737 MAX last year to replace 20 Embraers, the airline was looking at options for 25 more of the planes that remain in its fleet. THE CANADIAN PRESS

General Motors recalled more than 2.9 million vehicles — including 204,000 in Canada — Thursday as a deep dive into safety issues at the biggest U.S. automaker turned up more problems. The latest recalls bring GM’s total for the year in the U.S. to more than 11 million cars and trucks, close to its annual recall record of 11.8 million vehicles, set in 2004. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

“Many companies (in the past) have been reluctant to divulge that data, including Google, and, quite frankly, we are wrong about that,” Drummond said. He said the information will be released next month. The concession came after the Rev. Jesse Jackson appeared at the annual meeting to urge Google to lead the effort to hire more African-Americans.

Kill Bill, kid style Two tridents from the original World Trade Center loom inside the National September 11 Memorial & Museum as the new One World Trade Center rises outside. The opening ceremony for the museum was held at Ground Zero Thursday in New York City. The museum spans seven storeys, mostly underground, and contains artifacts from the attack on the World Trade Center Towers. CONTRIBUTED

9/11 memorial museum unveiled

Chaos, courage remembered

U.S. President Barack Obama praised the new 9/11 museum on Thursday as “a sacred place of healing and of hope” that captures both the story and the spirit of heroism that followed the attacks. “It’s an honour to join in your memories, to recall and to reflect, but above all to reaffirm the true spirit of 9/11: love, compassion, sacrifice — and to enshrine it forever in the heart of our nation,” he said at a dedication ceremony.

By turns chilling and heartbreaking, the Ground Zero museum leads people on an unsettling journey through the terrorist attacks, with forays into their lead-up and legacy. There are scenes of horror, including videos of the skyscrapers collapsing and people falling from them. But there also are symbols of heroism, ranging from damaged fire trucks to the wristwatch of one of the airline passengers who confronted the hijackers.

• Retired fire department lieutenant Mickey Cross described being trapped for hours in the wreckage of the north tower — and then joining the recovery effort after being rescued. “There was a real sense of caring for each other,” he said. • Ada Dolch, a school principal whose sister died at the trade centre, recalled turning her grief into inspiration to open a school in Afghanistan.

Kill Bill, the first part of which was released in 2003(!), helped launch Quentin Tarantino’s ongoing revenge flick spree. It also happened to be an instant classic. So, now that we’re a decade on, it’s about time to open the spigot on the next generation of tributes. And a shot-forshot remake starring two little girls as Black Mamba and Copperhead trashing the latter’s living room seems as good a place to start as any. (Via Bobby Burns/YouTube)

’Zilla we meet again, world Synopsis

Reel Guys

Fifteen years after the government and media claimed an earthquake caused a nuclear meltdown, scientist Joe Brody (Bryan Cranston) discovers the responsible party wasn’t Mother Nature, but something far more nefarious. That “something” is a Massive Unidentified Terrestrial Organism (MUTO), a giant-winged creature that feeds off earth’s natural radiation. Unfortunately by the time his theories are validated the MUTOs have begun to wreak havoc and there is only one force on earth (or maybe just under the earth) powerful enough to battle the overgrown mosquitoes — Godzilla, king of the monsters! • Richard: ••••• • Mark: •••••

Godzilla remake balances spirit of the original film with modern updates. CONTRIBUTED

A lizard act to follow. Gareth Edwards’ reboot of the 1954 classic plays where’s Godzilla with the outsized monster Richard: Mark, in a movie like this you know that when the main character’s wife says, “You know you’re only going to be away for a few days ... it’s not the end of the world,” that he’ll be gone for more than a few days and it just might be the end of the world, or something pretty close to it. I think the new Godzilla plays by most of

the rules of the giant lizard genre, but stomps all over 1998’s Roland Emmerich bythe-book remake. What did you think? Mark: The Emmerich Godzilla was a forgettable remake. This one is more exciting, more nuanced, and has better CGI. But so many monster movies have the same tired tropes. There’s always a hero just trying to get back to his imperilled family; always a fusillade of army bullets that are fired for naught; and always a monster from the depths of space, ocean or time. And this movie is no different. Except that Juliette Binoche wears a snazzy trench coat

RC: I agree that the standard kaiju kitsch is all in place — humungous monsters knock skyscrapers over with the flick of a tail and scientists talk mumbo-jumbo — but director Gareth Edwards has added in some moments of real heartbreak, small sequences that underscore the huge amount of destruction the creatures cause. It’s a balancing act to maintain the spirit of the original Godzilla movies while also updating them for a new audience.

tract. This scene on a bridge is a good one, though. Oh, and a scene with a train on a high trestle. This standard scene is also well done. Let’s not forget the scene in the big city where the citizens look in awe at the monster approaching between skyscrapers and then run for their lives. Again, well done here, although the original Godzilla invented the scene. But I think the filmmakers succeeded at the most important task in the movie — making us marvel at the sheer size of the thing. And this is done very, very well.

MB: Oh, Richard, I forgot. And there has to be a scene on a bridge. It’s in the con-

doesn’t enter until a bit too late in the game. This whole Cloverfield don’t-show-themonster thing is artistically noble, but if I wanted to NOT see Godzilla I’d go see Million Dollar Arm instead. For much of the movie every time we get to the cool ’Zilla action, Edwards cuts to something else or shrouds him behind a cloud of soot and smoke. He is, as Sally Hawkins’ character says, “a God for all intents and purposes,” so we should be treated to a better look at him. MB: Godzilla has always been an enigmatic presence. He’s got that “good monster/ bad monster” thing going. Or maybe he’s just bipolar.

Three points you never knew about Steve Nash

The world brought right to you.

Or right around the corner.

New doc. Sure you know he’s one of Canada’s greatest basketball exports, but did you know he’s also a CEO and filmmaker? Kevin Nealon stars in Blended, which opens in theatres across Canada next Friday. CONTRIBUTED

Nealon blends comedy and acting From stage to screen. Kevin Nealon had to be convinced to give acting a go — and he’s glad he did RICHARD CROUSE

scene@metronews.ca

People in the Niagara Falls area have two chances to see Kevin Nealon next week. He’ll be on the big screen co-starring with Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore in Blended, or for a more upclose-and-personal look, they can check him out on stage at the Fallsview Casino Resort

on May 24. Best known for his nineyear stint as part of the ensemble cast of Saturday Night Live where he introduced audiences to characters like Subliminal Message Man, the muscle-bound Austrian jock Franz and Mr. No Depth Perception, he was encouraged to make people laugh at an early age by watching comics

on television. “I loved stand-up growing up,” he says. “I used to follow all the stand-ups on TV. I’d highlight when they were going to be on in the TV Guide. Ultimately I decided that would be a great job because I liked telling jokes and I felt kind of an ease with it.” While honing his craft at legendary Los Angeles comedy club The Improvisation — “I pretty much lived there,” he says — he was encouraged to try acting. “One of the co-owners said to me, ‘You ought to take acting lessons because one day a casting agent will come into the back of the room, see you and want you to read for their show.’ I had (considered acting) but was embarrassed to say so. I didn’t have any training or anything, so I took act-

ing classes.” These days he’s a SAG Award ensemble nominee for his work on Weeds, and can be heard doing voice-work shows like American Dad, but his early performances weren’t always so high-profile. “There was a commercial I did that didn’t require a lot of acting. It was for Nabisco Country Crackers with (coun-

try singer) Lynn Anderson. I just had to play the banjo next to her while she fed me crackers. I remember Jay Leno saying, ‘Yeah, saw your commercial. Good for you.’ Then a week later they found copper dust particles in the crackers and had to recall them all so they took the commercial off the air.” The family comedy Blended is his latest outing with Adam Sandler, whom he has previously appeared with in Little Nicky, Anger Management and You Don’t Mess with the Zohan, among others. “Usually you’re on board if he’s doing something,” Nealon says of his frequent collaborator. “There was one movie I wasn’t quite sure if I wanted to be a part of. It was called Grandma’s Boy. It was so low-

ball and crass. I thought it might be a little embarrassing to be in that one. So I told Sandler I’d probably pass on it and he called me and said, ‘I really hope you do this because if you don’t do it and it’s a big hit I’ll feel bad, but if you do it and it’s not a big hit, no one is going to see it anyway.’ So I said, ‘All right, I’ll do it.’”

Basketball star Steve Nash has a lot of accomplishments to his name. Not only is the Victoria native one of only 27 Canadians to make it to the NBA, but Nash is also one of only three point guards in history to win MVP. And he did that two years in a row. However, as director Michael Hamilton’s new film Nash exhibits, there’s even more to the 17-year veteran. You may recognize his charitable work with The Steve Nash Foundation (which assists underserved children in their health and development), but did you know he’s also an acclaimed filmmaker? With the help of Hamilton, we compile three sides of Steve Nash you may

discover from the documentary: The CEO Nash runs an eponymously named B.C.-based fitness club chain as well as a digital marketing company in which he manages fellow basketball star’s online brands. “It just made sense for him, being so savvy,” explained Hamilton of the latter enterprise. “He realizes the way we’re going with media and TV and all that stuff, he just wanted to get involved and help out as many colleagues as he could.” The Filmmaker A film fan, Nash co-created Meathawk Productions, which has produced TV com-

mercials, and Into the Wind — a documentary about Terry Fox that premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2010. “Whether it’s raising money or putting people together to make a project, it takes time and work,” said Hamilton. “So for him to actually make a feature-length documentary was amazing and very humbling. “He didn’t show it much (at TIFF) but he was probably doing heel clicks inside because it is something to be proud of.” The Intern After Nike bought a commercial (for a fraction of the market price) he self-produced, Nash took a summer intern-

Allergies

#24 NPN 80043542

are a modern epidemic

By Dr. Chakib Hammoud, M.H.,PhD. What people experience: <I tried numerous other remedies all my life that were not effective. Since I discovered Bell Allergy Relief. I do not have a stuffy nose and itchy eyes when pollen season comes around. I don’t have to walk around like a doped zombie anymore. Leonard Waldner, 44, Delia, AB < For 20 years my life was miserable with sneezing, watery eyes and sinus pressure year-round on most days. I was amazed. On 3rd day all allergies were gone. It was like magic. Becky Gerber, 25, Dover, OH <Golfing without allergy attacks I tried all the medications and none worked. After taking 1 capsule in the morning I’m completely free of all symptoms. Richard Gamez, 74, San Antonio, TX morning. Therese Noto, 58, New York, NY.

SNORING?

SLEEP APNEA?

As recommended by Dr. Gifford-Jones M. D. Helps to reduce the time it takes to fall a sleep. In most cases also stops snoring and gasping for air (sleep apnea) first night. Stops torturing your partner all night. Good sleep prevents being tired next day. Tired people work only at half capacity. What people truly experience: < I really didn’t snore or gasp for air anymore. I sleep through the night and feel rested and refreshed in the morning. Mark Wilson, 40, Hudson, NH < Sleep apnea capsules worked first night! For last 15 years I had sleep apnea and my doctor made me buy a CPAP machine, which I could not use. Finally Bell #23 helped the first night and every night thereafter. Like a miracle. Unbelievable. Karen Braun, 67, Glace Bay, NS < For 20 years I was waking up frequently gasping for air. During the day I would start napping every time I would sit down, because I was tired. Since taking Bell #23 sleeping 6 hours is heaven. It made a substantial change in my life. Mary C. Myrick, 62, Jackson, MS #23 NPN 80045172 <It is such a joy not having to use the CPAP machine. I have had sleep apnea for 10 years.

Works by cleaning blood from the inside, instead of attacking skin with creams or washes from the outside and leaving actual cause untreated.

It was inexpensive compared with what I spent before. Jessica Shantz, 25, Dawson Creek, BC ECZEMA For 6 years my family doctor and dermatologist tried many medications and creams.

TIRED?

Middle-Age Energy Booster

Doctors on the Dr. Oz TV Show said that the most frequent complaint they get is “Being Very Tired”, some call it fatigue. They have no energy or interest to do anything. More food is not the answer. Drugs are not the answer either as the Johns Hopkins Medical School puts it: “The fact is, all medicines, whether OTC or prescription, carry some risk”. It needs a “key” to rejuvenate your own natural systems that fell asleep. Bell provides that key with: Selenium, spermine and spermidine, which are polyamines found in radishes, cucumbers and oats as well as all human cells. Nothing could be more natural than topping off that supply. There is no risk. The Wayne State University researched these ingredients for years and Bell guarantees your satisfaction. It is all right to be #65 NPN 80044126 skeptical and for that reason we show a few results below and have hundreds more, if you go on our website under #7 Erosyn, which has exactly the same ingredients. This rejuvenation means that most men and women may have youthful feelings again for their partner. Those who want it can resume their intimate relationship. We supply the proof that it works. If incontinence plays a role: McMaster University says that 65% of middle-aged women suffer with incontinence and this is the main reason why many withdraw from intimacy. This can be overcome within days by drinking the Bell Bladder Control Tea #4b available in the same stores as Middle-Age Energy Booster. No more rushing to the bathroom and no padding or diapers needed anymore. Many people wrote we changed their lives. <Bell Middle Age Energy Booster changed our lives. All I can say is am very satisfied and so is my lovely wife. I am so happy I have my youthful energy back. My wife thanks you too. Raoul Martin, 52, Woodstock, ON <I should have started using Bell Middle-Age Energy Booster years ago, when I noticed things were starting to slack off. The results were much better than I ever hoped for. David Buckley, 42, Peterborough, ON <Being in my forties I felt a loss of energy and zest for life. I have tried every product on the market. This Bell Middle-Age Energy Booster is the best preparation for aging people. A. J. Carisse, 44, Fredericton, NB

By Dr. Chakib Hammoud, M.H.,PhD. People write us it helps with all types of inflammation: < For the last 7-8 years I had inflammation in my spine L4 & L5, back and neck muscles that was unbearable and almost crippled me.

I can now raise my arms above my head, exercise and do all work again. I am ecstatic. Lovorn M. Bowe, 60, Roanoke, VA <Big difference in chronic nerve pain I suffered for 15 years all over my body, especially sciatica, osteoporosis, #70 NPN 80041845 gout. I had great relief within 1 week.

METRO DISH OUR TAKE ON THE WORLD OF CELEBRITIES Emma Stone

Emma not crazy about Andrew’s shyness Emma Stone is quite happy with her boyfriend and The Amazing Spider-Man co-star, Andrew Garfield, but there’s just one little problem. “Emma and Andrew are a serious couple, now deep into a three-year romance and even talking about having a family together,” a source tells E! News. “But Andrew’s increasing social awkwardness is a big issue for Emma. It’s like life imitating art with Andrew as the nerdy Peter Parker type for real. Andrew is very focused on keeping Emma happy, but for this to become a marriage and a family, she needs him to branch out and come out of his shell a bit.”

Game of gross? GOT almost showed real incest Melinda Taub

Metro World News

Oh, how cute — Lily Allen’s brother Alfie plays Theon Greyjoy in Game of Thrones, and she almost played his sister! Wait. This is Game of Thrones. That would have been horrible and borderline illegal. In her Reddit AMA, the British pop star says she was offered the role of Yara Greyjoy, Theon’s older sister. Fans will recall that when Yara was

introduced in the second season, Theon — who hadn’t seen his sister since childhood — tried to get to third base with her on the back of a horse. Allen wisely declined to play the scene with her real brother. “I’ve been asked to do a Game of Thrones cameo,” she wrote. “They asked me if I’d be interested in playing Theon’s sister, and I felt uncomfortable because I would have had to go on a horse and he would have touched me up and s—. Once they told me what was entailed, I said no thanks. I would be open to doing a musical cameo like Sigur Rós, though.” Wise move, Lily Allen. And to the Game of Thrones team: Get a grip.

Beyoncé

Maybe he shoulda just put a ring on it? Beyoncé gets wedding tattoo removed If the tattoo on Beyoncé’s ring finger is any indication, her marriage to Jay Z may be in trouble, as the singer has reportedly been undergoing treatments to have it removed, according to Star magazine. Beyoncé got the tattoo of the Roman numeral IV to signify her relationship with the rap mogul, but recent photos show it looking pro-

gressively more faded. “Jay’s been telling his friends that Beyoncé is getting her ring tattoo removed, the one they got when they were married. He just sort of shrugs it off, though, saying, ‘Nothing is forever,’” a source says. “To the public, Beyoncé and Jay Z appear to have it all. But behind closed doors, they’re not as happy as people think they are.”

No barbecue or backyard? No problem. Annabel Langbein, who brings good food into today’s fast-paced world, wraps up our Grilling Week with a recipe just for you from her cookbook The Free Range Cook.

Liquid Assets

Drink like Old Blue Eyes LIQUID ASSETS

LIFE

Peter Rockwell @therealwineguy liquidassets@eastlink.ca Facebook: therealwineguy

Guess what Frank Sinatra, Keith Richards and every ’80s hard rock band worth their weight in hair spray have in common? Just two words: Jack Daniel’s. Born in Lynchburg, Tenn., the world’s most popular American whisky has been filling the glasses of musicians and the Hollywood elite (not to mention those of us who work for a living) for decades. I didn’t know The Chairman of the Board was a fan until the recent release of Jack Daniel’s Sinatra Select Tennessee Whiskey (1 L, $265.14 - $299.99). It turns out Frank was buried with a bottle of the original black label. Jackie Gleason, a drinking buddy, introduced him to Jack’s southern charms sometime in the ’40s and he became an instant convert of what he liked to call “the nectar of the gods.” Old school Jack showed more oak and spice, so the barrels that age the Sinatra Select have extra layers of char to draw out those robust characteristics. Big, bold, boozy and sweet, it’s a fitting liquid tribute to Old Blue Eyes. PRICES REFLECT THE RANGE ACROSS THE COUNTRY. SOME PRODUCTS MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE IN ALL PROVINCES.

Tea-Smoked Salmon or Trout: Just add whiskey (or water) THE FREE RANGE COOK Annabel Langbein gustotv.com

1. Mix scotch whisky or water

with sugar and salt. Rub over the flesh side of the fish and leave to stand for 10 minutes before smoking (or up to 2 hours in the fridge, flesh side down in the whisky mixture).

2. Line a wok or roasting dish

with enough foil to reach 3-4 cm above the rim, flattening the foil firmly on the base and sides. Sprinkle the tea leaves or sawdust and sugar in the base. Position an oiled rack above the tea leaves and place the fish skin side down on the rack. Make sure there is enough room above the fish for the air to circulate and smoke the fish thoroughly.

3.

Cover the wok or roasting dish tightly with a lid and fold the overhanging foil in and around the edge of the lid to Ingredients • 2 tbsp scotch whisky or water • 1 tbsp brown sugar • 1 tsp salt • 1 side of salmon or trout, skin on To smoke • 3 tsp tea leaves or 2 tbsp untreated sawdust • 1 tsp sugar To serve • 1 crusty bread

This recipe serves six to eight people. ANNABEL LANGBEIN

seal. Place wok or roasting dish on the stove top over a high heat for 4-6 minutes (by this stage the mixture should be smoking vigorously), then reduce to a low heat and cook for a further 12 minutes. Turn off the heat but keep the lid closed for another 15 minutes so the

fish absorbs the smoky flavours while it cools.

4. Before serving, remove the pin bones from the cooked fish with a clean pair of tweezers or small pliers. Grasp one bone at a time and pull out in the direction the bone is lying.

5.

Transfer fish to a serving platter and serve crusty bread. 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.

Spicy Rub heats up the grill

This recipe makes two cups. ANNABEL LANGBEIN

This Spicy Rub recipe makes enough for several meals. If you’re not using the rub immediately, store it in a covered container in the fridge. It will keep for weeks.

3. Add garlic and ginger mix and cook for another 30-40 seconds over a low heat, just to sizzle. Remove from the heat and mix in the sugar and salt and pepper. Allow to cool.

1. Place garlic, lemon zest and juice, chilies and ginger in a small bowl. Mix to combine.

Spicy Yogurt Dip 1. In a small bowl mix 1 tbsp Spicy Rub (see above), 1 cup Greek yogurt and 1 tbsp lemon juice. Keeps in the fridge for about a week. Makes 1 cup.

2. Heat the oil in a fry pan and fry the cumin, turmeric, paprika and cinnamon sticks over a medium heat for about 30 seconds to toast and release aromas. Don’t let them burn.

Chickpea & Pepper Stir-fry 1. Heat 2 tbsp Spicy Rub in a frypan. Add 2 x 300 g cans chick-

peas and 2 thinly sliced red peppers and cook until coated in spice mixture and warmed through. Add 200 g baby spin-

ach leaves and cook until wilted. Garnish with a handful of coriander leaves before serving. ANNABEL LANGBEIN, GUSTOTV.COM

Ingredients • 6 cloves garlic, crushed • finely grated zest of 2 lemons • 3/4 cup lemon juice • 2 fresh chilies, very finely chopped • 3 tbsp finely grated ginger • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil • 2 tbsp ground cumin

Well, it could have been that we wanted winter to end so badly that we were jumping the gun, but either way it’s five weeks later and these buds have finally decided to burst.

Victoria Day

A festival that invites the world to celebrate artistry and creativity alongside a collection of incredibly talented Canadian artists and performers, Luminato is a full week of can’t-miss events. This year’s lineup includes The Roots, TV On The Radio, Rufus Wainwright, Jian Ghomeshi, and Ziggy Marley among many, many more. There are talks, movies, performances, music, and pretty much anything else you’d associate with opening up your mind to its creative side.

In case it was unclear, this is how summer starts. Whether you’re sticking around the city to enjoy patio season, hitting up a harbour boat cruise (with DJs and drinks obviously), or heading up to Wasaga Beach for Canada’s largest May 2-4 party put on by Electric Elements, this is how you set the tone for the next few months. We suggest you take this day off pretty seriously.

Date: May 19 Location: Canada

This is the largest dog festival in North America. For two days, 300,000 people and 150,000 of their four-legged friends are going to take over Woodbine Park in The Beaches for the biggest doggy party yet. If you’ve ever even seen a dog walking in Toronto, this is probably where they’ll be next weekend. If entering your dog in a fashion show isn’t exactly your thing, however, just be happy that Woofstock will likely leave most of the other parks in the city relatively empty for a few days.

TEDx Date: June 20 Location: Crescent School, 2365 Bayview Ave. It’s like TED, only local and self-organized. You’re still going to receive the kind of experience you’d hope to find at any TED event, only this one will feature discussions that are more directly relevant to your life in Toronto. Speakers, including John Tory, Michael Landsberg, and The Water Brothers, among others, will “present their thoughts, ideas and examples of how we can use experiences from our past as lessons for a successful future.”

Marathon of Sport Date: May 24 Location: The Hanger, 75 Carl Hall Rd. A motionball event, teams compete in a full day of athletic competition alongside Special Olympics athletes in events that include basketball, bench ball, and ultimate Frisbee to name a few. Teams aren’t simply responsible for bringing their A-game to the field, however; they’re also encouraged to raise funds for the Special Olympics and can use your help. And you’d better believe Notable has a team — if only we knew what bench ball was.

Stauskas, Ennis dish on their finer qualities NBA. Guards from GTA apply full-court press in campaigning at draft combine

NHL

Konopka gets 20 games for PED The NHL handed Buffalo Sabres forward Zenon Konopka a 20-game suspension Thursday for violating the terms of the NHL/ NHLPA performance-enhancing substances program. The league did not reveal what substance was discovered in the player’s system. THE CANADIAN PRESS NHL

NBA general managers will probe the psyches and intellect of young prospects as much as they’ll consider shooting, passing, jumping and the ability to defend in the six weeks leading up to the June 26 draft. They have done enough work dissecting the game on the floor that the flaws are known and the strengths readily apparent; it is the intangibles that could very well spell the difference in three or four draft slots. To suggest that two young GTA prospects are brimming with confidence and fully willing to make that known to prospective employers is an understatement. Nik Stauskas of Mississauga and Tyler Ennis of Brampton may not have taken part in the drills portion of the league’s draft combine Thursday but when they got behind closed doors with team executives they were more than willing to make strong cases for themselves. “Even without my ball Lottery trifecta?

Tyler Ennis and Nik Stauskas are seen as potential lottery picks in the draft, which would give the GTA three overall with Andrew Wiggins projected to go no worse than third.

handling and my play in pick and rolls and things like that, I can immediately be a guy that can stretch the floor and make shots, that’s something I’ve always been able to do,” said Stauskas, who sees himself as a hybrid shooting and point guard in the NBA. “I think teams are really going to be surprised when I have the ball in my hands and they put me in ball screens, they’re going to be surprised at the plays I can make for myself and others; I just feel like I’m a guy with a high IQ, and I really like to make the right play.” Ennis, meanwhile, has no doubt who the best point guard is in this draft class. It’s him. “I have the ability to lead a team, I think I have the ability to make others better and I think I’m able to put that together into a true point guard that can also score when my team needs it,” he said. “I think there’s a lot of guys who can really score the ball ... but none are able to put together the whole package as a point guard better than I can in this draft.” TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

San Jose Sharks general manager Doug Wilson is wasting no time making changes after becoming the fourth team in NHL history to lose a best-of-seven series it once led 3-0. Wilson said that he told pending unrestricted free agent defenceman Dan Boyle that he will not be re-signed, informed unproductive forward Marty Havlat that he will not be back and moved top-line winger Brent Burns back to defence.

Habs making life hard on the haters this spring NHL playoffs. Montreal proving to be a ‘special team’ as unlikely wins pile up It started with a torrent of hate. But P.K. Subban was feeling the love after the Canadiens disposed of the Boston Bruins. The charismatic Montreal defenceman, the target of racial abuse after his winning goal in Game 1 of their second-round playoff series, planted a kiss on broadcaster Pierre McGuire to wrap up their post-Game 7 interview Wednesday night. “Yeah baby,” said a jubilant Subban after McGuire congratulated him for reaching the Eastern Conference final, which starts Saturday in Montreal against the New York Rangers. More than a few hockey fans may have fallen for the underdog Habs after their per-

formance against the big bad Bruins. The Canadiens are hardworking, proud and tenacious. “It’s definitely a special team and if we didn’t know it before the playoffs, we definitely know it now,” said forward Max Pacioretty, who bounced back from a slow start in the series.

“I said when I got here, I just feel like this is a special team,” echoed forward Dale Weise, acquired from the Canucks on Feb. 3. “I was on Vancouver the year after they went to the Cup final, we won the Presidents’ Trophy — there’s something about this team that’s just special. “We’re real resilient. When

our backs are against the wall (and) we need a big performance, our big players show up. And we’ve got so much depth. I really like our team.” Head coach Michel Therrien was rightly proud Wednesday. “This is a great accomplishment from that group. We just beat the best team in the league. We were down 3-2 (in the series) and we showed a lot of character, a lot of passion. To be able to win the series here in Boston, it’s a tough place for teams to come and play here. I’m really proud about the performance of our players.”

Memorial Cup

Full speed ahead for Foreurs in London The Val-d’Or Foreurs are riding a wave of adrenaline into the Memorial Cup. Less than 48 hours after winning the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League championship in Baie-Comeau, Que., the Foreurs were on the ice Thursday in London preparing for the cup opener against the host Knights. “For sure we’ve been on a high for two days,” Foreurs forward Anthony Mantha said. “We need to manage our emotions. The tournament is starting tomorrow. We need to be ready.” Friday’s game pits the least-rested team against the Knights who will play their first real game in more than a month. The Foreurs went the full seven games to win both their QMJHL semifinal and final series. Mantha, a 57-goal man in the regular season, scored the winner with less than a minute remaining Tuesday against the Drakkar. “For sure in the first period or two being game-sharp is an advantage,” Mantha

said. “For us, it’s (important) to start strong. Once you have the lead, it’s a little bit easier playing with the lead than being back one or two goals.” Head coach Mario Durocher’s ideal scenario is a win against the host team Friday followed by two days of catching up on rest before their next game Monday against Guelph. “The first win is going to be the toughest one,” he said. “The quicker you get it, the better it’s going to be.” THe Canadian Press

Horoscopes

Aries

March 21 - April 20 Someone you think you can trust may try to trick you, so be on guard. It’s usually when you feel most relaxed that you are most likely to be cheated, so make sure you know what’s going on around you.

Taurus

April 21 - May 21 Before you begin a new task, ask yourself this one simple question: Is it really necessary? Most likely it is one of those jobs that can safely be put off to another day, week or month.

Gemini

May 22 - June 21 Your confidence is high and it will get even higher when the Sun enters your sign on the 21st. Before then make sure you have tied up all loose ends and your plans are solid.

Libra

Sept. 24 - Oct. 23 At some point today you will realize that many things you have been worrying about are simply not worth the time or the effort. Once you understand that, you will find it easier to focus on what is important.

Scorpio

Oct. 24 - Nov. 22 If you need to win someone over to your way of thinking, it’s time to bombard them with facts that prove your case. You will convince them more easily if there is something financial in it for them.

Sagittarius

Nov. 23 - Dec. 21 You need to make some kind of change to your routine and you need to make it immediately. Astrology is all about time and timing and the time to get started is now — while energy and motivation are high.

Cancer

June 22 - July 23 Mind planet Mercury in the most introspective area of your chart means you are more concerned with what’s going on in your head than what’s taking place in the world. The more you think the better you’ll do.

Leo

July 24 - Aug. 23 You may not be a team player by nature but cooperation has its benefits and what you do with others today will have a bigger effect than what you do on your own. Everyone wins.

Virgo

Aug. 24 - Sept. 23 This is an important time for you, especially if you have big ambitions. Don’t worry if you are still not decided what you should be aiming for in life because the next few days will make it easier to choose.

Capricorn

Dec. 22 - Jan. 20 You’ve enjoyed an easy ride in recent weeks and you know that at some stage you will have to pay for it. That stage will most likely arrive when the Sun changes signs on the 21st.

Aquarius

Jan. 21 - Feb. 19 You may be confused about your goals but in a matter of days your mind will be clear and the way ahead will be nicely mapped out for you. Listen to, and follow, your heart.
