New city report suggests striking out Telus Field West Rossdale. Redevelopment will be in the red without closing baseball site
Flip through to find the answer.
TEGAN AND SARA GUEST EDIT WITH PRIDE
Telus Field’s future may include a wrecking ball instead of baseball if the city is to break even on the redevelopment of the West Rossdale area, according to a city report. The report examining the proposed redevelopment concludes there is just not enough land to build the kind of sustainable neighbourhood the city wants and to pay for the improvements to the area. “West Rossdale is really only a small number of properties
and city blocks,” said the city’s manager of urban planning, Peter Ohm. “We haven’t got enough revenue to cover the cost of that development.” The report, which council will debate next Tuesday, examines the future of the area, including the former power plant site, and discusses what the city’s options are for the future. Knocking down Telus Field is part of a range of options, and without including demolition or relocation it would lead to the city making a $17.3-million profit on the overall redevelopment. All of the other scenarios forecast a loss for the city, with the highest being $38.3 million. He said the Rossdale redevelopment likely means the city has to at least consider the park’s future. “We would like to work on
what the future of Telus Field is, relative to the potential that council might want to break even or make a little bit of money on this city building project,” he said. Mayor Don Iveson said he was aware the city would eventually have to answer the question about he future of Telus Field, but he stressed nothing has been decided. He said whatever happens with Rossdale, it has to make sense for the city. “We have a vision for the neighbourhood down there, but it needs to be feasible,” he said. Coun. Scott McKeen, who represents the area, said he would have a hard time seeing the stadium go. “They would have some convincing to do with me to convince me to tear down Telus Field,” he said.

Committee approves public consultation plan for bike lanes
The game begins
Hidden cash tweets land in YEG An online craze that has people running around cities across North America searching for hidden cash has shown up in Edmonton. Clues are posted on the Twitter account @YEGHiddenCash. It started in San Francisco by an anonymous donor who called it a “social experiment for good.” The first clue in Edmonton was posted on Twitter early this morning, and a man found the cash taped to a lamppost at Jasper Avenue and 104 Street.

Blatchford vision scaled back The grandiose vision for the redevelopment of the City Centre Airport will need to have its wings clipped to avoid a $280-million loss, according to a city report. The financial analysis of the proposed airport redevelopment into the Blatchford subdivision concluded that some of the proposal’s original features would have to be curtailed if the city is going to avoid fall-
ing deep into the red. Instead, city administration is proposing an alternative redevelopment model that keeps some components like the district energy system, while dumping others like a pneumatic garbage system. The city’s re-worked proposal would eventually generate a $45-million profit, according to the report council will debate next
week. Mark Hall, the project’s executive director, said the city would still achieve the overall vision, but in a way that’s more feasible. “We haven’t dropped anything from the concept — what we’ve done is put it in a form that’s actually achievable,” he said. Mayor Don Iveson said he still believes the scaled-back scenario can achieve what
the city wanted. On top of that, Iveson said the area would be cheaper over the long run. “This dense development is going to pay a lot of taxes. It’s going to be very efficient for us to service,” he said. RYAN TUMILTY/METRO

City admin to consider south-side bike route Cycling infrastructure. Speakers say they would support connector route STEPHANIE DUBOIS
Stakeholders are ready for the city to start creating more bike infrastructure in the core areas — specifically south of the river — the city’s transportation committee heard Thursday. Many of the speakers at the meeting said there’s still a lot of work to be done moving forward, with some asking for additional routes and design guidelines like a north-south route to connect bikers crossing the river to the proposed 83 Avenue bike route. “Old Strathcona loves bikes. If you invest in bike infrastructure in Strathcona, you will not see the backlash as in other communities,” said speaker Conrad Nobert. The discussion was part of
By the numbers
From 2010-13, the city created 65.5 kms of on-road bike infrastructure at a cost of $3.4 million.
the city’s proposed four-year bike lane infrastructure plan, which outlines the steps needed moving forward to get cyclists connected in the city. Although routes aren’t approved pending budget approval and consultation, north-south routes are being proposed for downtown but are lacking on the south side of the river, said Coun. Ben Henderson. “We need it linking from anywhere in the south and it would be nice to know that we’re getting it into our thinking. We dealt with it on one side of the river but not the other,” he said. A motion was carried for city administration to consider a north-south connection to the 83 Avenue route.
The city is doing things differently when it comes to talking about bike lanes, and the transportation committee is OK with that. After hearing from stakeholders that not enough discussion on bike lanes was done in the past, city administration proposed a six-step consultation plan for bike infrastructure that could take up to two years, according to public engagement program manager Michelle Chalifoux on Thursday. “We’re erring on the side of caution with consultation,” said Mayor Don Iveson during the meeting. Council asked for a more detailed plan to go to the transportation committee on the public consultation for the four-year bike lane infrastructure plan.
The transportation committee requested the city consider a north-south connector route to the proposed 83 Avenue route Thursday. COURTESY CITY OF EDMONTON

ETS Stealth buses unveiled as part of transit pilot project On the road. Starting Monday, passengers will get to ride pilot buses for free if they fill out survey STEPHANIE DUBOIS
City officials weren’t on stealth mode on Thursday as they showed off the two new ETS Stealth electric buses, which will be tested on city roads. As part of a pilot project running from June 9 until October, the buses will pick up Edmontonians on different routes so city officials can see if the buses can handle ETS circuits. “An ETS Stealth can show up at any route,” said Linda Kadatz, ETS Bus Operations Divisional Supervisor. The Stealth bus pilot project is a move by the city to look at different ways they can improve their fleet, with city councillors adding
The city is spending $120,000 on the two buses for the pilot project.
there are a lot of benefits to the zero emission on street level buses. “I was really impressed. It was one of the quietest rides I’ve ever had in my life,” said Coun. Andrew Knack. As part of the pilot project, passengers who hop aboard the Stealth bus will ride for free but will have to fill out a survey on the bus. The electric bus being tested is not equipped for the city winters, as there is no built-in heat, said officials. The buses can hold 40 seated passengers, plus standing room, and can travel 90 km/h. If the pilot project goes well, the city will be looking into testing electric buses that are built to withstand winter temperatures.
The ETS Stealth bus will hit city streets on June 9 and will pick up passengers as part of a pilot project. Stephanie Dubois/Metro
Twin toddlers, one dead
Crown wants up to 20 years for father in abuse case A Crown prosecutor says an Edmonton man whose twin toddlers were starved and abused before one of them died in hospital should serve 18 to 20 years in prison. The prosecutor made the recommendation before showing a judge photos of the emaciated, bruised bodies of the two-year-old girls. Their father, who cannot be named, pleaded guilty earlier this year to manslaughter, aggravated assault and failing to provide the necessaries of life. Paramedics called to the family’s home in 2012 found the girls, who were no bigger than six-monthold babies, strapped in infant car seats. The father has admitted that while he didn’t physically hurt the children, he knew they were starving and suffering. His wife still faces charges, including seconddegree murder, but no trial date has been set. Court heard previously that the two-year-old girls had been deprived of food and were severely malnourished. the canadian press
Wildrose pledges more money for LRT
Wildrose leader Danielle Smith metro
The Wildrose Party is pledging more money for light-rail transit in Calgary and Edmonton if elected. The party announced its transit platform on Thursday and promised to commit $1.2 billion over four years for LRT expansion in both cities. “Wildrose believes LRT expansion in our two major cities is absolutely critical to
our future economic prosperity and reducing our environmental impact, and that’s why we’ve made this commitment in writing today,” party leader Danielle Smith said in a release. The party is proposing to pay for the extra funds through surpluses they believe can come from watching the bottom line carefully.

Smith said the plan would amount to about $50 million a year more for Calgary and Edmonton than they are in line to receive under current funding arrangements. “The future has never been brighter for these great Canadian cities.

Murder charges. Police search for suspect in connection to shooting Edmonton police are searching for a suspect allegedly responsible for a shooting Monday night that left a 22-year-old dead.

Police have issued seconddegree murder charges for Kalab Abberra Kitil, also 22, in connection with the shooting. He also faces five other weapons charges. According to Acting Staff Sgt.

Investigation continues after body found outside of bar Neighbours of a now-closed Edmonton pub where the body of a woman was discovered Wednesday said the area is generally quiet since the bar shut down. Formerly known as MacTaggart’s Twisted Kilt Pub and Eatery, police cordoned the building near 174 Street and Stony Plain Road off Thursday as they investigated the suspicious death. The women’s body was
found in a shed used to store empty kegs outside of the bar, which was known for its scantily-clad waitresses that dressed in micro-kilts and revealing shirts. Amanda Barbeau, the kitchen manager of neighbouring Fuss Cupcakes, said there hasn’t been much activity at the building after MacTaggart’s closed a little over a year ago. “It’s a scary situation to have happen so close to

Is Edmonton ready for FIFA 2015? What about 2026?
EPSB. Parents prepare for school closure decisions Edmonton parent Kelly Verhegge has a unique perspective when it comes to the fate of three Edmonton schools being considered for closure. Now a mother of two daughters, Verhegge attended Rundle, Lawton and Highlands School when she was a youngster and said she remembers the schools feeling dated. “When I went there for school, they were old then and I can’t imagine how the public school board would begin the upkeep on them now,” she said. Edmonton Public School Board has spent the better part of the last eight weeks consulting with the communities of nine different schools, including the three Verhegge attended, in order to choose a possible three to close down and replace with a larger, more modern facility. Living in the Beverley community, Verhegge opted to enrol her daughters in a Catholic school, but said
EPSB is set to announce its decision June 18 for the schools in the Lawton, Westmount and Highlands areas.
she would absolutely switch them both to a new school if the Lawton neighbourhood were chosen. “I think it would be a fantastic thing for Beverly, especially for the north side,” Verhegge said. According to EPSB managing director Lorne Parker, the district needs to make a change, because the status quo can’t remain. “We’re looking for areas where we have the strongest levels of support,” he said. “We don’t see this as a situation where we’re doing something to the community that is a negative initiative.”

FIFA 2015 Women’s World Cup
“Let’s fill that stadium, let’s make it red, let’s show Edmontonians support the girls on the road to becoming champions.” Trish Zimmerman, GM of the Edmonton FIFA 2015 committee jor world event like it since the 2001 IAAF. The international athletics games were an embarrassment due to scant attendance and a dull downtown that had British media dubbing the city “Deadmonton” throughout. But lots has changed, not just in terms of Edmonton’s cultural life, but the city and nation’s passion for the Beautiful Game. Canadian soccer, football, futbol — whatever you prefer to call it — is on a precipice right now. Previous to 2008, Canadian matches drew fewer than 10,000 spectators; 10,000 or more is standard today. The country also now has three Major League Soccer teams, and who could forget Christine Sinclair and team Canada’s all-star
showing at the 2012 Olympics? The growing up of Canadian soccer, says FC Edmonton broadcast announcer and Plastic Pitch magazine editor Steven Sandor, has much to do with the success of the inaugural U-19 (now U-20) Women’s World Cup in 2002, held in Victoria, Vancouver and Edmonton. Another great showing at the 2007 U-20 men’s tournament, also held in Edmonton, proved to FIFA that this country and city can love the game. “They (FIFA) weren’t expecting much,” says Sandor, who also edits Avenue magazine. “And then 50,000 people showed up. It was a crazy moment, like, ‘Maybe this country does have a support of soccer that we don’t know about.’”

Sandor explains that the early U-20 games were a process that led to a successful bid for the FIFA 2015 Women’s World Cup, but the end goal is hosting the 2026 World Cup. “We’re the only country that’s officially said we’re in it to win it,” he says. By process of elimination (a continent can only host the World Cup once every 12 years and South America, its birthplace, will almost certainly want to host the centennial 2030 tournament), it comes down to North America or Africa. Since Mexico has already hosted twice and the U.S. seems disinterested, that makes Canada North America’s frontrunner. Given Edmonton’s past successes, we’d almost certainly be a host city. We’ll know in 2018. The only thing that could get in the way, says Sandor, is Canadian’s lack of support of the 2015 women’s cup. “If the stadiums are half full, FIFA is going to say no (to 2026),” he says.

City police don’t see proposed new prostitution laws dramatically impacting their operations, which they say have long focused on the demand for sex, not the supply. On Wednesday, in response to a recent Supreme Court decision, the federal government introduced a host of proposed changes to Canada’s prostitution laws. Among the changes are tougher laws around 16-year-old girl

Edmonton police have laid charges against a man they allege forced a 16-year-old girl to work in the sex trade. The vice unit started the investigation in November 2012 and the 16-year-old girl told them she had met a man over the Internet in an online chat room. After
exploitation and limits on how sex work can be advertised. The changes put an emphasis on the demand for the sex trade by making buying sex illegal, while making selling it legal in many circumstances. Edmonton police vice unit Staff Sgt. Jerry Nash said the unit has always focused on those buying sex. “We have always focused on the consumer side, the johns, the pimps and the a brief romantic relationship ended, she was forced to work in the sex trade, police said. The head of the unit said the young woman was forced to work in the sex trade with all of the proceeds going to the older man. “It’s believed she was involved for approximately one month and very unfortunately in that time had approximately 100 customers,” said Staff Sgt. Jerry
exploitation,” he said. Nash said any interaction police have with those selling sex has been focused on getting them out of the trade. “Any of the enforcement we have done in the recent past has always been aligned with some of our partnering agencies, to assist with getting that individual into an exit strategy from the sex trade,” he said. Edmonton also licenses dozens of body-rub parlours, but the city’s director of licensing, Garry Dziwenka, said they can’t look to make any changes until at least the law has been passed in parliament. “When the law is passed we will assess our licensing scheme at that time,” he said. Nash. Nash said police initially made contact with the young woman during a sting operation and deliberately moved slowly on the investigation until she was ready to help. Detectives arrested Sean Patrick Wilson, 27, on May 21 and he has been charged with procuring for prostitution, living off the avails under 18 years, and sexual assault. Ryan Tumilty/Metro

With the country playing host to World Pride celebrations in Toronto this summer, Metro Canada is showing its support for the LGBTQ community with its first Canadian guest editorship. Multiple Juno winners Tegan and Sara are using their guest editorship to acknowledge some of the young people across Canada who are working to make a difference in the LGBTQ community

Year after year, album after album, our music has offered our fans a soundtrack for their experiences in life and love. The process of sharing our music with our fans and having them share their experiences with us is a cathartic cycle. As we have become more successful, that cathartic cycle has become about much more than love and loss in the romantic realm. Fans aren’t just sharing stories about heartbreak related to romance, they are sharing stories about heartbreak related to being LGBTQ: Awful tales of being kicked out of their houses for being gay; sad stories about their parents forbidding them to see their same-sex partners; gut-wrenching accounts about being bullied at school because they are queer. As sad as these stories have been, increasingly they’ve started to have a current of hopefulness pulsing through them. One after another,
Tegan and Sara share a few words about other LGBTQ Canadian musicians online at metronews.ca
our LGBTQ fans have told us our music is helping them through. Parents have started coming to our shows with their LGBTQ teenagers to thank us for being role models. They have questions and worries just like our Mom did when we came out: Will the world accept my child? Can my child still be successful and gay? The answer is yes. Emphatically, yes. We hope our success brings peace to these parents and reassurance to the young LGBTQ people we talk to each day. Most of all we hope to continue to be a beacon of change to the mainstream. When we started our career 16 years ago, we did not have the foresight to know how significant being out would be to
our career and lives. However, we always had an instinct that being open and honest about our sexuality — with media and fans alike — was the only way to live in our public life. It felt counterintuitive to hide who we were when our music was so sincere and transparent. Sara and I were aware that our career and audience would be better served by brutal honesty and openness rather than omissions about our experiences as gay people. How could we possibly sell our music if we weren’t open about the content of the music? Looking back, I’m proud that we had the fortitude to withstand some of the sexism and homophobia we faced. Though, truthfully, when I reflect on those early days, I don’t often see us struggling or hurting over these obstacles. I just see two really strong kids, irritatingly confident, forging ahead in face of anything that was thrown our way — just like I see so many of our young fans in the LGBTQ community doing themselves today.

Proceeds from sales fund the organization’s work promoting LGBTQ rights, awareness and equality. Revel & Riot also provides a wide range of LGBTQ resources online, including a database of community organizations, articles and videos. But it always comes back to the art. “It’s interesting what graphics can do,” Storey says. “It’s profoundly important to have writing and resources and material available to support the message ... “But good graphics can bring people to the cause in the first place. It catches someone’s eye, they share the image — it’s a very effective way to get a message across quickly.”

It was only natural that Emy Storey would eventually turn her hand to a project beyond designing band T-shirts and album cover art. “I had wanted for a long time to fuse the personal and political and pursue a project that was involved with gay rights,” says the Montrealbased graphic designer about the impulse that led her to start Revel & Riot. “In terms of graphics representing the movement, there really hadn’t been a lot. You’d go into a gay bookstore and you’d try to buy a T-shirt and it always looked the same,” she says, referring to the rainbow
and pink triangle designs — images that haven’t changed much since the 1970s. So Storey applied her graphic design talents to the problem, creating new takes on the classic imagery and printing them on Tshirts.

The filmmaker’s progress What I Love About Being Queer. From short film to Tumblr account to book: The evolution of Vivek Shraya’s multimedia project
What goes into designing a T-shirt? Revel & Riot’s Emy Storey gives us insight into some of her creations online at metronews.ca.

Austen Gilliland “I try to focus on the ways the world has gotten better for queer people, especially in my lifetime,” says Vivek Shraya, “but hearing people who are 10 years younger than I am going through the same thought processes I was going through when I was coming out — ‘My parents won’t accept me. I think I’m disgusting. Is this a phase? Will it go away?’ — that selfhate, I find really disturbing.” Shraya is a human rights adviser by day, a musician, filmmaker and author by night. It was his interactions with the LGBTQ students he met through his work for Diversity, Equity and Human Rights Services at Toronto’s George Brown College that inspired one of his biggest projects to date: What I Love About Being Queer. “I wanted to create a project that showcased the positive aspects of being queer,” he says. “To say to these students, ‘Hey, you know, this complicated part of yourself that you don’t know how to reconcile right now is also something that makes you beautiful. It’s something that should be celebrated.’” To answer their questions, he asked one of his own. “I thought, Why not ask people what they love about being queer?” Shraya says. It was a question he wasn’t sure he could answer himself. “I think a lot of us have grown up in a world where we learned the opposite first; where we learned all the negative things about being queer.” Growing up as a gay South Asian in Edmonton in the ’90s, he was well acquainted with the negatives — homophobia and a sense of isolation, just to start — but this was a chance to refocus. He set up his film equipment in his living room and asked friends to contribute, then reached out to “people who had inspired me: Educators, activists, artists. I wanted a lot of people of colour;

that was important to me.” In the end, the film featured 34 people — but Shraya didn’t want to stop there. “I was increasingly aware that there was no way for me to actually fully capture the amazing diversity of the queer community,” he says. That’s where Tumblr came in. “That made it an open project. Anyone, anywhere, could submit their answer.” Within six months, he had more than 200 submissions from around the world. The idea for the book came from his friend Farzana Doctor, a Lambda-winning author and project contributor, who suggested that publishing a coffee-table book would be a great way of extending the reach of the project. At first, Shraya wasn’t convinced. “It’s really powerful to see so many different queer bodies expressing what they love about being queer on film,” he says. He worried that immediacy and intimacy would be lost on paper.
Along with his What I Love About Being Queer project, Vivek Shraya also wrote God Loves Hair, a collection of 21 short stories about a child navigating the complex realms of sexuality, gender, racial politics, religion, and belonging. Visit metronews.ca for excerpts and a video of Shraya reading from the collection.
and the book was recently nominated for a Lambda Literary Award. In a world where so many cultural representations of the gay community have a tragic aspect, Shraya is happy to focus on the positive. “Those [tragic] stories are important to showcase, but I also think it’s important to show that we have rich lives,” he says. “We build community, we make great art, we’re hilarious. There are all these other facets about us that sometimes get lost.”
But then he thought races, orientations and corabout what the book would ners of the globe. Sales have been global, have meant to him as a young man. “If someone had hand- too. Shraya has shipped coped me a book like that when I ies across North America, and was 16, when I was struggling to Germany, Peru, Brazil and with who I was ... I couldn’t India. They’ve already raised have imagined something more than $11,000 for the Positive Space like this, then,” he says.

If there was a poster child for the LGBTQ youth community in Edmonton, Kiana Chouinard might be it. The 18-year-old, now in her first year at the U of A, has taken her own coming-out story to thousands of high school students in Edmonton and area, first as president of her own school’s GayStraight Alliance (GSA), and since then as teacher, speaker and committee member. “I’m a middle child from a big, loud family — I just can’t be quiet,” Chouinard said. She wants others to speak freely, too, pointing to GSAs and a program called fYrefly in Schools as hugely important to LGBTQ teens and their peers. These initiatives provide a safe space to talk, dispel myths and “just to normalize it.” fYrefly in Schools is a retreat for sexual and gender minority youth now in its 11th summer in the Edmonton area, Chouinard has been helping facilitate the program since the pilot in her Grade 10 year. She describes it as supportive and informative for all high school students: gay, straight, homophobic, questioning or closeted. “If I had that presentation when I was in school, I’d be so far ahead. A lot of internalized homophobia could’ve been avoided.” fYrefly co-founder Kris Wells spearheads both the school workshops and ISMSS (Institute for Sexual Minority Studies and Services) at the U of A. In 2013, the fYrefly team delivered over 155 free workshops in Edmonton Liberating youth

and Calgary schools. Wells said that through these programs, youth like Chouinard deliver a powerful peer-to-peer message to students in ways that adult professionals cannot. “The workshops and weekends are like a booster shot against homophobia. The kids come away wanting to start GSAs in their own schools and to make a positive difference,” Wells said.
Chouinard’s recent work on the nohomophobes project, which targets the use of casual homophobia in social media, highlighted the world-wide use of slurs like “faggot”, “dyke” and even “that’s so gay”. • She said acknowledging the use of such language
in daily life helps reduce bullying and change the culture in school and beyond. • “I find it liberating to help other youth. There’s nothing better than helping someone be themselves,” Chouinard said.

RCMP’s ‘worst nightmare’ over after suspect arrested RCMP shootings. Police from across Canada had been brought in to help track down 24-yearold suspected shooter Justin Bourque
New Brunswick as is our country.” Police had urged people with any information on Bourque’s whereabouts to call 911. The Moncton man was wearing military camouflage and carrying two rifles in a picture of him released by police on Twitter on Wednesday night. The identities of the officers who were shot have not been released by police. But late Thursday, the National Post identified one of the officers fatally shot as Const. Dave Ross, a police services dog handler with the RCMP. The newspaper quoted the sister-in-law of the man’s wife as saying he had a young son, with another child expected in September.

A nerve-racking search for the heavily armed gunman had been underway throughout Thursday in Moncton, nearly a full day
after he allegedly shot three New Brunswick Mounties dead and injured two others in one of the worst mass shootings in the RCMP’s history. “This is working through your worst nightmare,” Assistant Commissioner Roger Brown, the Mounties’ commanding officer in New Brunswick, told a news conference. Brown appealed for public calm in a city that had been under a virtual siege since Wednesday evening. “This is a very, very dangerous situation,” he said. Officers were unable to confirm the identity of the suspect on two other occasions when he might have been sighted on Thursday, Supt. Marlene Snowman said.

Will Njoku said, via Twitter, “I just want this to be over,” as he and hundreds of residents were waiting for police to find the man suspected of having shot and killed three RCMP officers. Njoku spoke with media outlets from his home in Moncton following the shooting Wednesday night, sharing his experience as helicopters flew overhead and police searched the neighbourhood for any sign of the gunman. “I just want this to be over for all of us.… Worried for my neighbors,” Njoku tweeted Wednesday.
“It’s just such an unreal and uneasy feeling.” Moncton resident Audrey Vaughan
Heavily armed RCMP officers searched through the night for Justin Bourque, 24, whom they caught early Friday. Police had asked residents in a large section of the city to remain indoors until the suspect was found. Around 11:30 a.m. Thursday, Njoku said via Twitter he and his family had spent the night in their basement, then moved upstairs and locked themselves in a bathroom. “Taking no chances,” he tweeted. A former Yarmouth County woman living in Moncton was also on lockdown, and said there will forever be a sense of “innocence lost” in the city her family calls home. Audrey Vaughan, who lives in Moncton with her husband, Jim, and their son
Jimmy told the Yarmouth Vanguard Thursday morning no one had gotten much sleep. “There’s just so many little patches of wooded areas and green space, and (Bourque) knows the area, he’s from here. Any little noise and you’re looking out the window,” she said. Vaughan said it’s incredibly sad to think about the RCMP officers who died in the line of duty, and her heart “just broke” thinking of the families and fellow Mounties who had to continue the search. Vaughan said Moncton is “just not going to look the same again.” “That’s the hard part. He’s taken away something from all of us,” she said. with files from the Yarmouth County Vanguard

At G7: Harper, Obama opposed to meeting Putin G7. Harper and Obama firmly against plans of several fellow leaders to meet with Russian president: Source Prime Minister Stephen Harper joined U.S. President Barack Obama in opposing the plans of some G7 leaders to meet Russian President Vladimir Putin this week, The Canadian Press has learned. During two days of closeddoor G7 leaders’ talks in Brussels, Harper and Obama were firmly aligned against the plans of several fellow leaders to sit down with Putin, a source close to the talks said Thursday. Harper has consistently urged other countries and Canadian businesses to actively isolate Putin on the world

stage. France invited Putin to Friday’s commemoration in Normandy to mark the 70th anniversary of the D-Day invasion, which began the liberation of Europe from the Nazis. Putin’s imminent arrival
has exposed cracks in an otherwise united G7 front that produced a public declaration denouncing his annexation of Crimea and provocations in eastern Ukraine. British Prime Minister David Cameron, French President Francois Hollande and German Chancellor Angela Merkel are to meet Putin this week and engage him on the Ukraine crisis. Hollande and Cameron both were to meet Putin on Thursday in Paris. His meeting with Merkel is to come in the French resort of Deauville on Friday. Hollande has mused that the Normandy setting might be conducive to a positive meeting between Putin and Ukraine presidentelect Petrol Poroshenko on Friday. Behind closed doors, Harper and Obama were reported united and clear they had no intention of meeting Putin. the canadian press

New evidence on moon’s birth A new study strengthens the notion that our moon was created by a collision between Earth and a planetsized object some 4.5 billion years ago. German scientists studied moon rocks gathered by
astronauts nearly a half-century ago in the Apollo 11, 12 and 16 missions. They analyzed various kinds of oxygen atoms and found the moon rocks have a different makeup than Earth rocks. That fits with the idea that the moon
would contain material from the object that struck Earth. The results also suggest that the moon may be a 50-50 mix of material from the object and Earth. The study was published Thursday in Science. the associated press

A lone gunman armed with a shotgun opened fire Thursday in a building at a small Seattle university, killing one person before a student subdued him with pepper spray as he tried to reload, Seattle police said. Police say a student building monitor at Seattle Pacific University disarmed the gunman and several other students jumped on top of him and pinned him down until police arrived. A man in his 20s died at
the hospital and a critically injured 20-year-old woman was taken to surgery, Harborview Medical Center spokeswoman Susan Gregg said. A 24-year-old man and a 22-year-old man were in satisfactory condition. None of the victims was immediately identified. Police initially reported that they were searching for a second suspect. They later said no one else was involved. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Kawaii overload with debut of Pepper the robot Will sell for $1,900 US. Japanese billionaire kicked the ‘kawaii’, or cute culture, up a notch with humanoid robot A cooing, gesturing humanoid on wheels that can decipher emotions has been unveiled in Japan by billionaire Masayoshi Son, who says robots should be tender and make people smile. Son’s mobile phone company SoftBank said Thursday that the robot it has dubbed Pepper will go on sale in Japan in February for $1,900 US. Overseas sales plans are under consideration but undecided. The machine, which has no legs but has gently gesticulating hands, appeared on a stage in a Tokyo suburb, cooing and humming. It dramatically touched hands with Son in a Genesis or E.T. moment. Son, who told the crowd that his longtime dream was to go into the personal robot business, said Pepper has been
programmed to read the emotions of people around it by recognizing expressions and voice tones. “Our aim is to develop affectionate robots that can make people smile,” he said. Cuddly robots are not new in Japan, a nation dominated by “kawaii,” or cute culture, but no companion robot has emerged a major market success yet. Japanese electronics and entertainment company Sony Corp. discontinued the Aibo pet-dog robot in 2006, despite outcry from its fans. At that time, Sony had developed a child-shaped

entertainment robot similar to Pepper but much smaller, capable of dances and other charming moves, which never became a commercial product. Honda Motor Co. has developed the walking, talking Asimo robot, but that is too sophisticated and expensive for home use, and appears in Honda showrooms and gala events only. Even then, it is prone to glitches because of its complexity. Many other Japanese companies, including Hitachi Ltd. and Toyota Motor Corp., not to mention universities and startups, have developed various robots, big and small, which entertain and serve as companions.

Google Street View a ‘godsend’ for Greece A Google car is presented to the media in Athens on Thursday. Google has launched its Street View map service in Greece after winning approval from the privacy authority that blocked the ground-level map application five years ago. Company officials said the service went live after “extensive and detailed” negotiations with the country’s Data Protection Authority, which last year lifted objections made to the project in 2009. Culture Minister Panos Panagiotopoulos attended a launch event in Athens and said the map service would help the crisis-hit country’s vital tourism industry, describing Greece as an “endless archaeological park.” “We have so much to show off. This is a godsend,” he said. “Everyone knows how difficult things are, with all the obstacles that are there when dealing with the Greek state. We are trying to overcome these difficulties.” Google was allowed to gather photos for Street View while waiting for formal approval to start the service in Greece, the 56th country where it is now available. The company also had been permitted to display cultural sites on a related service. Thanassis Stavrakis/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Publishing

Nepalese students hug trees en masse on World Environment Day on the outskirts of Kathmandu, Nepal. ALL PHOTOS NIRANJAN SHRESTHA/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
The dog days are coming REBECCA WILLIAMS
2,000+ attempt Guinness record for World Environment Day More than 2,000 people, mostly students wearing their school uniforms, gathered in Nepal’s capital on Thursday in a bid to set a world record for the largest collective tree-hugging event. Parliament members, office workers and even Buddhist monks also took part in the attempt, joining the students at a park on the outskirts of Kathmandu. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
“Tree hugger” is usually a pejorative term, but there’s evidence that getting cosy with the woods is good for you.

Future flick Edge of Tomorrow puts time on Cruise control Synopsis
Set at the height of a worldwide battle between the human race and seemingly indestructible aliens called Mimics, Tom Cruise plays William Cage, a marketing genius whose ads have inspired millions of people to enlist by telling them the story of hero Rita (Emily Blunt), a legendary warrior with more Mimic notches on her belt than the rest of the army combined. When pressed into combat, something strange happens. Cage gets caught in a time loop, reliving the same day over and over. Eventually he’ll learn enough to beat this unbeatable foe. Trouble is, he has to die every day... • Richard: ••••• • Mark: •••••
Emily Blunt and Tom Cruise star in the time-travelling sci-fi thriller Edge of Tomorrow. CONTRIBUTED
Clever and entertaining. But unlike his character, Cruise’s latest film doesn’t have the ability to re-do its more lacklustre moments Richard: Mark, two thirds of Edge of Tomorrow is as unCruise-like a movie as Tom has ever made. The Groundhog Day been-there, done-that section of the film is inventive, often played for laughs and presents Cruise in a way we’ve rarely ever seen him —
as a coward. It’s a refreshing twist for him and gives him a chance to exercise his rarely used comedic chops. You know he’s going to turn heroic sooner or later, but it’s a blast to see him do something just outside his usual wheelhouse. Mark: Richard, I enjoyed his cowardly weasel schtick as much as you. I didn’t find the Groundhog Day type plot as inventive, though — it’s been done in other movies like Source Code and About Time, but the mashup with Starship Troopers was different. The problem I had was that the necessary repetitiveness became
inevitably boring after a while, and I felt like I was watching someone slowly get very good at a violent video game. RC: It does rely a bit too heavily on video game-style violence at the end, but I have to disagree with you on the repetitiveness of the time loop. I thought director Doug Liman figured out clever and entertaining ways to show the same thing over and over, keeping it exciting with interesting editing and changing perspectives. The first two reels are packed with energy and invention. It’s only when the conventions that made the story enticing are
put aside in the last reel that the movie becomes a standard Cruise action flick. A good Cruise action flick but still more standard than the promising first hour. MB: Cruise has been in some dogs lately, but this isn’t one of them. And normally I would have dismissed the last third as too conventional, but at least it’s the only part of the movie that puts Cruise and the viewer on the same level — neither knows what’s going to happen next. I just found the time-loop a bit boring, which I also felt in Groundhog Day. I’m in the minority here, Richard, and I know

it. What did you think of Emily Blunt? RC: I’m a fan, but this is something different for her, and for action movies in general. Big budget blockbusters don’t usually make room for female characters unless they are sidekicks or girlfriends. Here Blunt avoids being objectified and is as strong, if not stronger than Cruise. MB: I also liked Bill Paxton. Even liked watching him do the same dialogue again and again, but with a growing sense of befuddlement and disassociation as the scenes progress.

Wolfcop blends the fuzz with the fuzzy Canadian director playfully shifts shape of werewolf genre. Wolfcop trailer wows horror fans to win film-financing contest Chris Alexander
How’s this for high concept: Alcoholic cop gets the bite from a beast and turns into a blood-hungry monster during the full moon and ultimately becomes a better officer in the process. That’s the bizarre gist of Wolfcop, a riotous Canadian romp from writer/ director Lowell Dean, a Saskatchewan-reared filmmaker whose gonzo sensibilities suit the hirsute story sublimely. “We didn’t want to do something derivative,” Dean told Metro last week. “At the same time, we had to make a movie within the constraints of our low

budget. So we just tried to think of what we haven’t seen on screen in any werewolf movie in a while. The touchstone film for me is An American Werewolf in London and there’s plenty of its DNA in Wolfcop.” Certainly, the playful yet gory push and pull that drives
Wolfcop hearkens back to John Landis’ immortal 1981 classic, but when it comes to Dean’s werewolf, the transformation makes Rick Baker’s award-winning FX designs seem like mere growing pains. No, when Wolfcop’s cursed lawman Lou Garou (Leo Fafard) shifts shape, it’s gleefully

revolting, with skin splitting, bursting and slipping off to reveal the screaming monster inside. It’s wild, sophisticated stuff and even wilder considering the film cost peanuts to produce. “The film scene was shrinking in Saskatchewan as we had just lost our tax
credit,” notes the director of Wolfcop’s challenged genesis. “So our question was, how would we do this? The Hobo with a Shotgun trailer was very inspirational for us and like that trailer, our trailer we produced to get financing was more of a scene. Our plan was to use it to try to find rich dentists and what not, and when we came across CineCoup it was too good to be true.” CineCoup is the Cineplex steered national film-financing contest that was almost completely dictated by fan response and an elaborate voting process. And even though many observers of the contest called it for Wolfcop to win, Dean was never completely convinced. “Even when we were in the top five, I was telling my partners we wouldn’t win and just to ride with the amount of press we were getting. I really had no idea.” Wolfcop has been getting international buzz and recently made the cover of Canadian horror bible Rue Morgue. Advance reviews are glowing
and many are calling Dean a horror hero. But now that the blood has dried and the film is on the cusp of release, the question begs, what’s next Mr. Dean? “Why, Wolfcop 2, of course!” Of course. Exclusively online

Coppola said there was a lot in the characters’ stories she could relate to, and that she made the film in the hopes that her audience, whatever their age, would feel the same. Coppola tried to keep the film authentic by casting young actors to play key characters. Among them are Emma Roberts, Julia Roberts’ niece, who plays the timid April, and Jack Kilmer, Val Kilmer’s son, in the part of tender but easily influenced Teddy. “They would tell me the

Yes, this South London band wants their name spelled in ALL CAPS, apparently. If you’re into the same musical quirks as Franz Ferdinand, give this a listen.
With parts of western Africa in the midst of another Ebola outbreak, a trio of rappers created this dance track to help spread the word and urge everyone to be careful.
Video game review
Name. Watch Dogs For. Xbox 360/PS3/Xbox One/PS4/PC Rated. Mature 17+
••••• If Watch Dogs were a movie it’d be boring. Its hero lacks charm and his tale of vengeance meanders painfully. Thankfully as a game it’s full of car chases and gangland shootouts, enhanced with the ability to hack traffic systems and remote-trigger explosions. Chicago is full of people to spy on and its realism creates a wonderful playground for online hacker battles. Accessing secret areas and tracking down others is where things get interesting and I’d happily trade in all the action missions for a game focused just on that. Kris Abel

A bloody new take on vampires The Strain. Guillermo del Toro returned to Toronto to film the much-anticipated TV series based on a trilogy of novels he co-wrote Mexican director Guillermo del Toro’s new series, The Strain, is probably the most hotly anticipated television debut of the summer season. But don’t expect del Toro’s fresh take on vampirism, which debuts July 13 on FX Canada, to be anything but bracingly and blood-chillingly original. “I wanted to go much more beyond the man in the cape with the fangs and the funny accent,” del Toro said, recalling his own youth as a “pale, thin kid” who had a deep fascination with vampires. The Strain, based on a book trilogy he co-wrote with Chuck Hogan, was shot almost entirely in Toronto, the same city del Toro chose to shoot his bigbudget monster-versus-robots
“I didn’t want the heroes to be great; I wanted them to do things that were wrong.” Director Guillermo del Toro
Corey Stoll plays Dr. Ephraim Goodweather, the head of a team that investigates biological threats in The Strain, set to debut on FX Canada on July 13. Mexican director Guillermo del Toro shot the series almost entirely in Toronto. contributed
movie Pacific Rim, which hit movie screens last year. The story begins when a biological hazards team in hazmat suits discovers a planeload of apparently dead passengers on the tarmac at a New York airport who turn out not to be so dead. They’re infected
with a parasitic organism that turns them into bloodthirsty vampires. It doesn’t take long for the parasitic infection to become a global crisis. Del Toro said he’s recently fallen in love with high-quality episodic television and saw it as the right medium to adapt the
novels. “I realized that the long arc allows you to live with the characters in the way that no other medium does. It’s not just a weekly adventure that is opened and closed. But you could actually follow characters for long arcs that last a season,
two seasons or more. I was really attracted to that storytelling form, “ he said. Del Toro said he’s also created characters who are all too human in terms of their flaws. “The idea with The Strain is that the vampires are striving for perfection and unity and uniformity, and the humans are a ragtag band of really marginal characters. ” Casting of actors, including House of Cards’ Corey Stoll as Dr. Ephraim Goodweather, a biological hazards expert, and David Bradley as former professor and Holocaust survivor Abraham Setrakian, took close to seven months. Unexpectedly, there was no shortage of network suitors. “Every network we went to wanted the show. I was really, really quite amazed but that is not normal in the life of a storyteller. Usually we get kicked
five times, and the one guy that gets it, you find by a pure miracle, said del Toro.” Eric Schrier, president of original programming and productions for FX Networks, said the series is the “most ambitious” ever undertaken by the network. Schrier noted that the experience of shooting in Canada was so positive, the network decided to locate Fargo, based on the Coen Brothers film, to Calgary, and Wayward Pines, which the network is producing for Fox, to Vancouver. “We had never shot a production in Canada until The Strain and this year, we spent over $100 million in production dollars across Canada,” he said. “The crews and people here in Canada have been fantastic and we’re looking forward to doing more production here.” Torstar News Service

CTV looks to cover all its bases with fall lineup CTV unveiled a varied fall lineup Thursday, betting that a mixed bag of family comedies, superhero series and gritty dramas will capture the broadest audience of Canadians. Bell Media, which runs CTV, appeared to be taking aim at its competitors with its announcement Thursday. Rogers Media has built its schedule around hockey, for which it paid a whopping $5.2 billion, while Shaw Media
is targeting primarily women with its drama offerings. In contrast, CTV is banking on shows that it hopes will have mass appeal. Among them are four new superhero series: the Ben McKenzie vehicle Gotham, Marvel’s Agent Carter, The Flash and Forever. CTV is also looking to build a strong Thursday night comedy block with The Millers, starring Beau Bridges and Will Arnett as father and son, and the similarly titled The McCarthys joining ratings hits Two and a Half Men and The Big Bang Theory.

Clubs, drugs, Power for suburban moms Produced by 50 Cent. Creator of drug-trade drama is betting that everybody can relate to show’s message Power, a gritty new drama debuting Saturday, is executive produced by 50 Cent and chronicles both the underpinnings of a brutal drug-trade life and the glamour of the clubs. It debuts Saturday at 10 p.m. on Super Channel. But its creator, Courtney Kemp Agboh, balks when it’s described as urban entertainment. The Emmy-nominated producer, whose credits include The Good Wife, sees the story as one that everybody can relate to — even suburban moms. “In a real sense it’s a show about a universal question,” she says. “Does your past dictate your future? Can you change who you are? … The show is really about a larger thing.” Power stars Omari Hardwick as Ghost, a drug dealer

When my dad died, I felt like I really needed to write about him and write about his experiences.” The death of Agboh’s father in 2011 was a turning point for her. It was after he died that Power began to become a reality. “This is the first show I ever pitched, the first show I ever sold, the first show I ever wrote for money,” she said.
“Things happened at once.” It’s another high point for Agboh, who started off as a magazine writer before leaping into television writing, then producing. “I wanted to be the first black female editor-in-chief of Vogue magazine and that totally didn’t work out,” she laughed. As one of the few black women behind a TV series, there are obvious comparisons to Shonda Rimes, whom with the success of shows like Scandal and Grey’s Anatomy has become one of the most powerful figures on television. But Agboh sees few similarities besides their skin colour and gender, both of which she downplays . “I don’t think it’s about the race or gender of the showrunner; I think it’s about what’s compelling and what will bring people back,” she said. “I’m grateful to Shonda if in fact her existence allows people to see me in a different way, but I don’t think that we do the same thing nor should we be expected to.” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Justin Bieber’s racist skeletons just keep coming out of that old closet
Dr. Drezillions snaps up $40M mega-mansion If Dr. Dre is looking to downplay reports that he’s basically a billionaire now, his latest real estate purchase isn’t helping. The rap mogul has reportedly closed on the $40 million mega-mansion in Brentwood, Calif., previously owned by Gisele Bundchen
and Tom Brady, according to E! News. “He’s about to close on the house (that he) and his wife, Nicole, purchased,” a source says. The 18,700 square-foot estate sits on four acres and has five bedrooms and nine bathrooms, plus a home gym, solar panels and a chicken coop.
Cox, 49, lives up to … er … in Cougar Town MELINDA TAUB
Metro World News in New York City
Maddening: Cameron puts Benji on a leash for a walk to the coffee shop Cameron Diaz has been pretty coy about her rumored romance with Good Charlotte musician Benji Madden, but not anymore. The new couple confirmed their status by strolling hand-in-hand while grabbing coffee earlier this week,
according to Us Weekly. “Cameron and Benji have actually known each other for years.” a source says. (Benji is) not her first rocker. She likes rockers and she loves bad boys. Right now, they’re totally into each other.”
Courteney Cox really does inhabit Cougar Town: The former Friend, 49, is reportedly set to marry Snow Patrol guitarist Johnny McDaid, who’s 12 years her junior. Though the two have been dating for less than a year, things have been going so well that they’re discussing getting engaged, insiders say. “Johnny loves her daughter Coco, and he wants to marry Courteney. They have
discussed getting engaged and everyone thinks it is going to happen,” a source tells Page Six. Coco is Cox’s 10-yearold daughter with her first husband David Arquette. They were married for 14 years, divorcing in 2013 after a long and rocky separation. Cox and McDaid met through Cox’s close friend Jennifer Aniston, who apparently approves of the relationship. “All of Courteney’s friends love Johnny, which is great because Jen wasn’t so fond of David Arquette,” the source says. Ha! Poor, poor David Arquette. I’m glad Jennifer Aniston isn’t best friends with my boyfriend. I feel certain I wouldn’t pass muster. I can’t even play guitar.
Justin Bieber’s past keeps coming back to haunt him, as yet another video has surfaced showing the then-14-year-old singer parodying his One Less Lonely Girl hit by using a racist slur instead, according to the Sun. Sources say his team has known about the video for years but refused to pay the $500,000 demanded by whoever ended up leaking it. As is becoming his custom, Bieber was quick to apologize, the second time he’s done so for a racist video from his past in less than a week. “Facing my mistakes from years ago has
been one of the hardest things I’ve ever dealt with,” he says in the new statement. “But I feel now that I need to take responsibility for those mistakes and not let them linger. … At the end of the day, I just need to step up and own what I did.” He might want to save some of that owning, though, as Page Six reports that there could be “15 to 20 more minutes” of footage of Bieber using racial slurs that have yet to be released, footage that “explicitly shows this was more than just one regrettable joke,” a source says. Wonder what the next apology will look like.

Beer born in Ontario LIQUID ASSETS
Peter Rockwell @therealwineguy email@example.com
Back in the ’80s, Bob and Doug McKenzie turned our appreciation of a cold brew into something as iconically Canadian as playing street hockey or sewing a maple leaf on your backpack. In this age of innovative craft beer, two other Canucks have taken our liquid history a little more seriously. Alan McLeod and Jordan St. John’s new book Ontario Beer: A Heady History of Brewing from the Great Lakes to the Hudson Bay (The History Press, $21.99) is a lovingly researched look back at the life and times of Ontario’s vibrant brewing culture. Finding a beer from that province with national distribution, not made by a big-time brewery, can be tough. While Creemore Springs’ Premium Lager (473 ml, $2.85 - $3.99) may be part of the Molson family, it’s kept its regional personality with a shot of malt and light hops. It’s well-rounded and session worthy (meaning you can enjoy a few in one sitting). It’s a great barbecue beer, meeting sweet and savoury flavours somewhere right in the middle.

When in doubt, wrap your app in prosciutto Baked ProsciuttoWrapped Jalapeno Poppers. There is a simple way to slim down these traditionally fat-laden bites Standard jalapeno poppers are thumb-sized hot peppers stuffed with cream cheese and cheddar cheese, then breaded and deep-fried. Yummy, but most home cooks aren’t too excited for the mess of deepfrying. That’s why there also is a baked version — half a jalapeno stuffed with cheese and wrapped in bacon. Neither is all that healthy. So this version delivers gratification without overdoing it. From a culinary point of view, jalapeno poppers make complete sense. Nothing tames a chili’s heat like dairy. That’s why so many cultures serve their fiery entrées with dairy as a side dish. Mexicans team up Ingredients • 4 oz fresh goat cheese • 1 oz grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese • 1/4 cup finely chopped scallion greens • 2 tsp grated lemon zest • 6 jalapeno peppers • 3 oz (12 slices) prosciutto

spicy tortillas with crema. Indians serve hot curries with yogurt-based raita. And that’s why cheese is right at home in a jalapeno popper. But it doesn’t have to be high-fat cheese. The fresh goat cheese in this recipe delivers the required creaminess, while a modest amount of Parmigiano-Reggiano delivers the required flavour. Brighten up the filling with scallions and lemon zest, then wrap the stuffed jalapeno in prosciutto. Though it has a lot less fat than bacon, prosciutto
boasts big pork flavour. And when it’s baked, as it is here, it’s nice and crispy, which eliminates the need to coat the pepper with bread crumbs.

FIFA must re-vote if corruption is proven: UEFA boss
‘Brazil Cost’ unlike its neighbours World Cup visitors, welcome to Brazil, land of soccer, sun and sky-high prices. Unlike nearby Latin American nations where a tourist’s U.S. dollar or European Union euro seemingly stretches forever, Brazil is astoundingly expensive. If one’s budget isn’t immediately busted by the flight or the hotel, it will soon be done in by the $10 caipirinha cocktail, the $17 cheeseburger or the $35 pepperoni pizza. Known as the “Brazil Cost,” the high prices are the result of high taxes and steep import tariffs, combined with bad infrastructure, a dose of inefficiency and a shot of bureaucracy.

Stanley Cup final. Facing the Kings Battle-hardened Kings ‘a pretty big challenge’ “They’re one of the best teams I’ve seen in a long
time.... We’re going to have to be better than we were.” Rangers coach Alain Vignault on the Kings
The Los Angeles Kings are a mountain to climb, and the size of the challenge comes home the closer you get. The New York Rangers finally had a first-hand look in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup final, mounting an early assault before Los Angeles knocked them back to win 3-2 in overtime. Asked to compare the physicality of the well-drilled
Kings to the three teams the Rangers have beaten in the playoffs to date, New York coach Alain Vigneault neatly summed up the challenge before the Blueshirts. “Philly was a physical team and they played on the edge,” he said. “Pittsburgh played more of a skill game, but they also had quite a few players that played on the
edge. Montreal was a real structured team. So they were three different opponents. “This one here is structured. They’ve got skill. They’re physical. So makes it a pretty big challenge.” You can add battle-hardened to that list. In the dog-eat-dog Western Conference, the Kings
have come to the final the long way. They have had to run the gauntlet of San Jose, Anaheim and Chicago — teams that finished 15, 20 and 11 points, respectively, ahead of New York in the regular season. And they did it without home-ice advantage. “We’re a team that’s just never going to go away,” said Los Angeles forward Kyle Clifford. “Doesn’t matter what the score is, we’re going to play our hardest and do what we do best.” Game 2 will be played Saturday in Los Angeles.

Canada’s Eugenie Bouchard played like someone who belonged in the final four of a Grand Slam on Thursday. She gave Maria Sharapova a stiff challenge at the French Open before the Russian veteran pulled away late for a 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 victory, derailing Bouchard’s attempt to become the first Canadian to reach a major singles final in the Open era. As painful as the defeat was for the 20-year-old from Westmount, Que., it will go down as another valuable learning experience on the heels of her
first Grand Slam semifinal appearance at this year’s Australian Open. A look of dejection was etched on her face as she left the court after the nearly twoand-a-half-hour-long match. It was clear Bouchard wasn’t just happy to be on the big stage. She wanted the victory and was crushed when it didn’t happen. “It was a tough battle; it was what I expected,” said Bouchard. “I didn’t play as well as I had earlier in the tournament. It’s always disappointing to be

Jays swing Tigers by tail for sweep MLB. Toronto has won 19 of its last 23 games, breaking out brooms against Detroit, Oakland and Boston John Gibbons was all smiles in the visiting manager’s office after his Toronto Blue Jays wrapped up yet another sweep of one of the American League’s most successful teams. “We’re feeling good right now,” Gibbons said. “We’re confident, and we’re playing good baseball. We’re rolling.” Juan Francisco and Brett Lawrie hit consecutive home runs in the sixth inning off Justin Verlander, and the Blue Jays completed a three-game sweep of the Detroit Tigers with a 7-3 victory Thursday. The AL Eastleading Blue Jays have won 19 of 23, including sweeps of defending champion Boston, AL West-leading Oakland and AL Central-leading Detroit. “It’s a great atmosphere — we’ve got a lot of positivity in here,” Lawrie said. “Everyone likes to have fun, and everybody’s comfortable with one another.” J.A. Happ (5-2) allowed three runs and seven hits in 6 1/3 innings for Toronto. Casey Janssen got the final out for his 10th save in 11 chances. He needed only one pitch to retire Nick Castellanos on a line drive to left with two on. Melky Cabrera also homered for the Blue Jays. Verlander (6-5) allowed six

runs — five earned — and eight hits in seven innings. He walked four and struck out four. Toronto scored three runs each in the fourth and sixth innings. “My fastball was great today, but I just missed some offspeed pitches,” Verlander said. “If I execute those four or five pitches, this would have been a fantastic game. I feel like I’m turning the corner with the mechanical adjustments I’ve made. I know the results don’t reflect that, but I felt great out there.”
With the score tied at 3, Adam Lind drew a leadoff walk in the sixth. Francisco followed with a homer to right, and Lawrie’s drive to left made it 6-3. “Against a guy like that, you
can’t really be on your heels,” said Lawrie, who did not have an at-bat against Verlander before Thursday. “You’ve got to be ready to go. Worked a couple good at-bats against him today, and ended up putting one in play, and it ended up being big for us.” It was the 10th homer of the season for both Francisco and Lawrie. Toronto has hit a major league-leading 87. The Blue Jays won despite the absence of slugger Edwin Encarnacion, who missed the game with a back issue. The aSsociated PRess

With an air conditioning failure making it feel like basketball in a sauna and causing LeBron James to battle cramps that knocked him out of the game’s decisive stretch, the Spurs pulled away to win the opener of the first finals rematch since 1998. Manu Ginobili had 16 points and 11 assists, and Tony Parker added 19 points and eight assists for the Spurs, who shot 59 per cent and improved to 6-for-6 in NBA Finals Game 1s. Duncan said the heat was a

significant factor in the game. “I don’t know what happened to LeBron, but I think all of us were feeling the heat,” Duncan said. “We were all dehydrated.” James finished with 25 points but played only 33 minutes, and Miami was outscored 36-17 in the fourth quarter. The Associated Press
