Riders’ Smith to stand trial for brutal assault Nightclub beating. Teammate Anderson has charge dropped SARAH TAGUIAM

Saskatchewan Roughriders wide receiver Taj Smith will stand trial for aggravated assault, though the same charge against teammate and defensive back Dwight Anderson has been dropped. After a two-day preliminary hearing in Regina’s provincial court, a judge ruled on Thursday that there isn’t enough evidence to proceed with a trial for Anderson. “It’s good to go back and concentrate about football,” Anderson told reporters outside the downtown courthouse

after the hearing wrapped up. “We got this part of it out of the way and now, to be honest, let’s move on.” Smith and Anderson were accused of beating a 20-year-old man in front of a crowd outside Regina’s Pure Ultra Lounge last August. The altercation left the man with serious injuries. Evidence presented in court was under a publication ban. Smith will go on trial, the judge said. He left the courthouse without speaking to media. “We expected he will be put to trial for these matters,” said Crown attorney Adam Breker. “The way the evidence came out, we put it before the judge and she made her determination — and after having heard all the evidence, it’s not a huge surprise that she made the decision she did.” Anderson said the charge

Moving on

“I’m just going to worry about my situation right now, and my situation is now dealt with.” Riders defensive back Dwight Anderson

hadn’t weighed on him in the past several months. “I know I didn’t do anything, so I just knew I had to go through the court system and that was going to take time,” Anderson said. An aggravated assault charge against Roughriders wide receiver Eron Riley in the same incident was dropped on June 4. Dates for Smith’s trial have yet to be announced. “I’m going to let (Smith) and his lawyers take care of that situation,” Anderson said.

Saskatchewan Roughriders wide receiver Taj Smith, left, and defensive back Dwight Anderson leave provincial court in Regina on Thursday. Both players were charged following the beating of a man outside a Regina bar last August. The charge against Anderson was dropped, though Smith will continue to stand trial. Inset: Anderson said he’s relieved that he won’t go to trial after a judge found insufficient evidence to proceed against him. SARAH TAGUIAM/METRO

Riders to face the enemy on home turf Redblacks. Ottawa team to make debut at Mosaic Stadium MARCO VIGLIOTTI

It is perhaps the most monumental exhibition game ever played at Mosaic Stadium. And it owes none of its significance to its famed host team, the Saskatchewan Roughriders. On Saturday, the Ottawa Redblacks will make their Canadian Football League

debut in Regina against the Riders in both teams’ first pre-season game of 2014. “It’s one of the most significant (milestones), because it actually has the team on the field playing football,” Jeff Hunt, CEO of the Redblacks, told Metro, noting that the tilt is officially an Ottawa home game. “It’s been a long time coming.” The long-running first franchise in the nation’s capital famously shared the Roughriders moniker — actually, Rough Riders — with Saskatchewan. The exhibition opener was

originally to be played in Ottawa, but was moved to Regina after Redblacks officials realized that the team’s new stadium, TD Place, wouldn’t be completed in time for the game. Hunt said Mosaic Stadium was quickly identified as a suitable replacement, mainly because of the Green and White’s strong fan support. In Saskatchewan, he added, “CFL football is more important ... than anywhere else in the country.” Despite the distance, some Ottawa football fans are planning to make the trip to Regina for the game.


The Redblacks are the third CFL franchise to call Ottawa home after their most recent predecessors, the Renegades, folded following the 2005 season.

Joanne Pomalis, a former Regina resident living in Ottawa, is among them. “Everyone in Ottawa is very excited to have football back,” she said, adding that as a Riders fan she will root for Saskatchewan.


A union representing specialized health-care workers is appealing to the Saskatchewan government to bring in a mediator to restart stalled contract negotiations. Karen Wasylenko, president of the Health Sciences Association of Saskatchewan, says the union has “no choice” but to lobby the government after talks with the Saskatchewan Association of Health Organizations (SAHO) reached an impasse. She says negotiations broke down after SAHO abruptly cancelled four days of scheduled negotiations. “We were hoping that with the four days we wouldn’t have to do this ... but they turned around and cancelled on us without giving any reason,” Wasylenko told Metro on Thursday. Doug Forseth, CEO of SAHO, said his organization is “disappointed” that the union has declared an impasse. “We feel that more discussion and negotiation through the regular bargaining process was needed and could have gone forward,” Forseth said. According to Wasylenko, the primary issue for union members is “chronic understaffing” in health regions. Forseth, however, refused to comment on the nature of the discussions with the union, stating that it’s not “productive to negotiate in the media.” He added, though, that “there are still a lot of issues that need to be sorted through.” The union represents more than 3,400 specially trained workers including paramedics, hospital pharmacists and physical therapists.

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 #65 NPN 80044126 right to be 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

Province wants auditor to review French school board books Money woes. Financial concerns could leave teachers without a payday The Saskatchewan government wants the province’s auditor to take a look at the books of a French-language school board because of money problems. Education Minister Don Morgan says he’s concerned about the financial position of the Conseil scolaire fransaskois, which said earlier this month that it might not be able to pay teachers on time. “The idea of paying a teacher late or not at all is something that’s not acceptable,” Morgan said on Thursday. “They should not have to worry about whether they will have money for groceries or their own mortgage pay-

ments, so we will make sure that they get paid.” President Andre Denis says the board was audited by the province in 2012-13. He says if the provincial auditor accepts the mandate to review the books again, the board will co-operate. “The CSF has undertaken concrete actions to stabilize the (board’s) financial situation and to achieve a balanced budget in 2014-2015,” said Denis. “As with the ministry, the Conseil will await provincial auditor’s recommendations following her assessment of the (board’s) financial situation.” The board says it has already cut administrative jobs, reduced training and put prekindergarten for three-yearolds on hold in schools where there was an extra cost to staff the program to help address a $4.4-million shortfall. Morgan said the French-

Highway lines ready to get fresh coat of paint

Saskatchewan’s highways are getting a makeover, as the province has begun painting lines on more than 50,000 kilometres of roads. The province’s highway system — the largest in Canada per capita — undergoes line repainting every season, starting in mid-May or early June. “Lines provide drivers with critical information about where their wheels should be and where they can safely pull over during an emergency situation. They

also alert motorists to passing opportunities and intersection locations,” Highways Minister Nancy Heppner said on Thursday in a release. “Wear and tear from traffic, snowplow blades and the elements mean these important safety tools need to be repainted each year.” A total of 47,753 kilometres of centre and shoulder lines are set to be painted, along with 29,065 km of pavement signs such as those with arrows and stop bars.

All lines must be repainted by Dec. 15, according to Ministry of Highways spokesman Joel Cherry. “Saskatchewan is growing, has a lot of harsh weather elements and has more traffic all the time,” Cherry said, “and that affects all aspects of our transportation system including lines.” About 1.2 million litres of paint and 660,000 kilograms of spherical glass beads, which add reflection on paint for night driving, will be ap-

plied to the pavement. Some left-over glass beads will also be used on the lines, Cherry added. The entire project has a budget of $7.2 million. Five paint trucks will travel the province to work on the lines. All drivers are asked to slow down to 60 km/h when passing the trucks with flashing lights. “We ask that drivers follow this law to ensure their safety on the roads,” Cherry added.

BlackBerry intercepts used in mob crackdown


Islamic militants vow to march to Baghdad

Project Clemenza. Police say more than a million messages were analyzed as evidence, leading to arrest of 31 suspected gangsters Police in Quebec say they used intercepted BlackBerry communications to take down two alleged organized crime groups operating in the province. The RCMP said Thursday more than one million private messages were intercepted and analyzed as evidence as part of an operation dubbed Project Clemenza. Officials from the RCMP and Montreal Police said it is the first time this investigative technique has been used on such a large scale in a criminal investigation. “This is the most important interception of this kind performed as part of a major investigation in North America.”

Islamic militants who seized cities and towns vowed Thursday to march on Baghdad to settle old scores, joined by Saddam Hussein-era loyalists and other disaffected Sunnis capitalizing on the government’s political paralysis over the biggest threat to Iraq’s stability since the U.S. withdrawal. The militants also declared they would impose Shariah law in Mosul and other areas they captured. Three planeloads of Americans were being evacuated from a major Iraqi airbase north of Baghdad, U.S. officials said, and Germany urged its citizens to immediately leave parts of Iraq, including Baghdad.

World Cup revelry matched by rage as protests get violent Turmoil in host cities. Black Bloc adherents infect crowd angered by billions spent on sport Protesters and Brazilian police clashed in Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and at least three other World Cup cities on Thursday, around the first match of soccer’s premier event. Just after the match started, about 300 protesters marched along Rio’s Copacabana beach to denounce lavish spending on a sports tournament in a nation with profound social needs. The protest was peaceful, but there were worries that could change as adherents to the anarchist “Black Bloc” tactic were seen in the crowd. Violence did break out elsewhere. In Sao Paulo, more than 300 demonstrators gathered along a main highway leading to the stadium. Some tried to block traffic, but police repeatedly pushed them back using tear gas and stun grenades. A few protesters suffered injuries after being hit by rubber bullets, while others choked on tear gas. An Associated Press photographer was injured in the leg after a stun grenade

exploded near him. CNN reported on its website that two of its journalists were also injured. “We’re in a country where the money doesn’t go to the community, and meanwhile we see all these millions spent on stadiums,” said student Tameres Mota, a protester at the Sao Paulo demonstration. Meanwhile, about 300 protesters gathered in central Rio de Janeiro; police took a few into custody. In Belo Horizonte, about 200 clashed with police, some smashing doors and windows. About 1,000 gathered in Porto Alegre, with some breaking property and hurling stones, authorities said. Police scattered about 150 protesters in the capital city of Brasilia, according to a local newspaper. The Associated Press

Pope Francis has a message for the World Cup: Let soccer be a showcase for teamwork and solidarity, not racism and greed. The Argentine-born Pope recorded a video that aired on Brazilian TV ahead of Thursday’s opening match. In it, Francis said soccer teaches three lessons that can promote peace and solidarity: the need to work hard to reach goals, the importance of fair play and teamwork and the need to respect opponents. “To win, we must overcome individualism, selfishness, all forms of racism, intolerance and manipulation of people,” he said. He said being “greedy” in soccer, as in life, is an obstacle. Francis, a lifelong fan of the Buenos Aires club San Lorenzo, has amassed an enormous collection of jerseys since his election and has met with many visiting teams. The Associated Press

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,

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.

Revelling in a riotous rainbow of messages A picture’s worth a thousand words. Emy Storey’s Revel & Riot T-shirts speak for themselves Austen Gilliland For Metro

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.

“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 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.

Saskatoon teen seeks gender, sexual equality in classroom Television taught 19-year-old Thomas Gendzwill of Saskatoon about the aspects of life his high school failed to mention. He remembers watching 1 Girl 5 Gays on MTV Canada — a show that speaks frankly about homosexual issues — after he came out as bisexual at 14. That’s when he realized how his education was letting him down. “I talk to some older gay men who are in their late 20s and they talk about Queer As Folk,” said Gendzwill, who graduated last year. “1 Girl 5 Gays was my Queer As Folk.”

But most other aspects of society are heteronormative, he said, so he still had a long way to go before fully understanding the many identities and variances captured under the LGBTQ banner. Attending several forums over the past few months with the non-profit youth diversity initiative Jer’s Vision gave Gendzwill the knowledge and confidence he needed to enact change. “I was astounded that at 19, completely done high school, I had not learned a lot of these things,” he said. “I was learning a whole bunch

more about HIV and hepatitis C ... I was also learning about transgender people.” Now, Gendzwill is determined to bring equality into the classroom. He plans to reach out to the Gay Straight Alliances at public schools and develop a strategy for incorporating standardized LGBTQ curricula into sexual education. “I feel as though sex ed is a great platform for kids to learn about our community,” he said. Gendzwill added that this would both lift the stigma of certain STIs and reduce

anxiety for youth who don’t know about gay and lesbian sex or how to properly minimize their risk of contracting life-changing infections. “It’s important that kids learn about how to be safe,” said Gendzwill. He also said that having a single-stall gender-neutral washroom in every school would create a safer space for queer and trans* students. One day, Gendzwill hopes to bring all of his interests together to work in the media industry that first inspired him and make it more inclusive. Jacob morgan/metro

Former teacher dies in hoarder’s squalor, cat in lap Help was available

California. Rita Corpin, 72, was pronounced dead in her yard of natural causes; she owned three homes

“I wish we would have known about this. We probably could have salvaged her.” Fire Insp. Darren Johnson A member of the Orange County Task Force on Hoarding’s executive committee.

Orange County firefighters wearing hazmat suits had to climb over vegetation and trash piled 1.5 metres high to get to a yard where a woman died in a chair amid debris with a kitten in a carrier on her lap. County Register reports that firefighters arrived Tuesday night at the Rosewood Avenue home of Rita Corpin, 72, who was pronounced dead in her yard. No foul play is suspected.

Corpin owned two other Orange County homes where animal control officials attempted Wednesday to capture more than 60 feral cats. The retired high school history teacher owned two dogs and fed area cats regularly, Santa Ana police Cpl. Anthony Bertagna said. Because her home was so full of debris, Corpin lived alone in a truck in her drive-

way, Bertagna said. It took officials several hours to remove Corpin’s body from the property because of the trash and overgrown plants. Over time, the hoarding and neglect at Corpin’s properties prompted 26 contacts by Santa Ana city officials, city spokeswoman Tanya Lyon said. The city levied fines and warned Corpin about her properties’ poor condition, but she eventually refused to allow city officials on her properties, Lyon said. By making small changes, Corpin prevented the city from seeking a search warrant to perform inspections. The Orange County Task Force on Hoarding said the group had not worked with Corpin. the associated press

Businessman’s grave ransacked

Pleased to meat you, George Artist Alex Valhouli puts the finishing touches on Meat Rushmore, a four-metre-tall, five-metre-wide meat replica of the U.S. Mount Rushmore Memorial. It was created to celebrate the third annual National Jerky Day and was on display Thursday in New York. It’s made from 1,600 pounds of beef, pork and turkey jerky. Stuart Ramson/the associated press

Three people, including a daughter, are accused of ransacking the grave of a U.S. businessman in search of his “real will,” only to find a pack of cigarettes in his hand. Eddie Nash died of a heart attack in 2004 at age 68. His cemetery vault in New Hampshire was found cracked last month, the casket opened and his remains searched. The body was left intact. An arrest affidavit names Ginette Dowse, 71, Michael Day, 37, and Nash’s daughter, Melanie Lynch, 52. Lynch had made comments about her father being buried with “the real will,” police said. Day was arrested Tuesday and jailed on charges of interference with a cemetery and criminal mischief. His lawyer didn’t return a phone call. Dowse and Lynch are out on bail. the associated press

Surveillance. White House pushing local cops to zip it The Obama administration has been quietly advising local police not to disclose details about surveillance technology they are using to sweep up basic cellphone data from entire neighbourhoods, The Associated Press has learned. Citing security reasons, the U.S. has intervened in routine state public-records cases and criminal trials regarding use of the technology. This has resulted in police departments withholding materials or heavily censoring documents in rare instances when they disclose anything about the purchase and use of such powerful equipment.

J-Lo helps World Cup kick off in style

Sticker shock in Brazil 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 US caipirinha cocktail and the $17 cheeseburger. And those are the prices city-dwelling Brazilians saw even before the World Cup set off a new standard of sticker shock. The dizzying prices are referred to here as the “Custo Brasil,” or “Brazil Cost” — the mixture of high taxes and steep import tariffs, combined with bad infrastructure, a dose of inefficiency and a thick shot of bureaucracy. Demand leading up to a big event like the World Cup naturally raises prices. But, since costs already were

What things cost in Brazil

Brazil protects its local industries by charging high tariffs on imported goods. The iPhone 5s costs $649 in the U.S. but has a starting price of $1,250 US in Brazil. A pepperoni pizza will cost you $35 in Brazil. Brazil’s $6.28 Big Mac is among the most expensive in the world.

high to begin with, tourists should prepare to dig deeply into their wallets and not be too miffed to receive goods or services of inferior quality,

said Rafael Alcadipani, a business administration professor at the Getulio Vargas Foundation, Brazil’s top think-tank. “Anything you buy in Brazil will be more expensive than in the United States or Europe, but the quality is going to be worse,” he said. Hotel rates in many of the World Cup host cities more than doubled ahead of the tournament. Massachusettsbased TripAdvisor reports visitors to Rio will face the highest prices, with hotel rates averaging $445 per night. Even the more affordable host cities will set travellers back a good amount: $457 per day in Cuiaba and $477 in Sao Paulo. “The Cup prices are ridiculous. Everything shot up. The only thing you can buy in Brazil is a bikini, a cachaca (Brazilian sugar cane liquor) and a pair of Havaianas (sandals),” said Gillian Santos, a Brazilian who now lives in Belgium.

The sun rose Thursday on a tropical nation hosting its first World Cup in 64 years. Nearly half the world’s population, well over three billion spectators, are expected to watch soccer’s premier event and get a glimpse of the country that in two years will host the Summer Olympics. But just hours before play was to begin, it still wasn’t clear which Brazil we would see. Would it be the irreverent nation known for its festive, freewheeling spirit? Or would it be the country that, for the past year, has been a hotbed of fury over poor public services, discontent over a political system widely viewed as corrupt, and deep anger over the $11.5 billion US spent on hosting the World Cup? “The world is going to see multitudes cheering for soccer — but also demanding that our country change,” Helen Santos, a school teacher, said as she walked home in Rio de Janeiro. “The world needs to see that we’re a serious country. We’re not just a nation of soccer, but a country striving and demanding the government provide better education and health care. The world needs to see the reality of Brazil, not just the sport.” Street protests have lessened in size since last year, when Brazilians staged raucous rallies against the government, overshadowing the Confederations Cup soccer tournament. For two weeks, dozens of places were roiled by unrest. Whether Brazilians have moved past such disruption is uncertain. “I hope the soccer outshines the protests, but I also know there remains a climate

However, protesters and Brazilian police clashed in Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and at least three other World Cup cities on Thursday ahead of the first match. About 300 protesters marched along Rio’s Copacabana beach. In Sao Paulo, more than 300 demonstrators

gathered along a main highway leading to the stadium. In Belo Horizonte, another Cup host city, about 200 protesters clashed with police at a rally in a central plaza. In southern Brazil, Porto Alegre, another host city, saw about 1,000 people gather, with some breaking windows and hurling stones at police. About 150 protesters in the capital city of Brasilia were scattered by police using tear gas and rubber bullets, THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

The Canadian Sealers Association blames heavy sea ice and trade issues for a big drop in the commercial hunt off Newfoundland this spring. Executive director Frank Pinhorn says just fewer than 55,000 harp seals were landed, compared to 91,000 last year and 69,000 in 2012. Pinhorn says about 65 boats went out compared to 45 the year before, but many had trouble getting through unusually thick sea ice.

He says the number of seals landed was far below the federal quota of 400,000 while the price held steady at about $35 for the best pelts. The association is calling on Ottawa to more aggressively deal with seal product bans that block access to markets in several countries. The federal government has challenged a European Union ban at the World Trade Organization but lost again on appeal last month. the canadian press

The four-day London conference is organized by Brit-

They hope representatives of the more than 100 countries present will back a new protocol laying out how sexual violence in conflict zones should be investigated and prosecuted. They say they want to end the “culture of impunity” for wartime sex crimes. Pitt watched from the audience as Jolie and Hague spoke to delegates at the east London conference venue.

The U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday sided with juice maker Pom Wonderful in its long-running false advertising dispute with Coca-Cola. Matt Rourke/the associated press file

It’s Pom Wonderful news for juice maker Sweet justice? Top U.S. court rules Pom can go forward with a lawsuit alleging a competitor’s label is misleading Coca-Cola’s version of pomegranate juice is not quite the real thing, and a competitor has another chance to prove it in court. The U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday sided with juice maker Pom Wonderful in its long-running false advertising dispute with the

Coca-Cola Co., a decision that could open the door to more litigation against food makers for deceptive labelling. The justices ruled 8-0 that Pom can go forward with a lawsuit alleging the label on a “Pomegranate Blueberry” beverage offered by Coke’s Minute Maid unit is misleading because 99 per cent of the drink is apple and grape juice. Lower courts had ruled in favour of Coke because the label conforms to the law and to Food and Drug Administration rules. But the Supreme Court re-

versed, finding that the juice label may technically comply with FDA rules but may still mislead consumers for different reasons. Writing for the court, Justice Anthony Kennedy said federal FDA laws and trademark laws complement each other in the regulation of misleading labels. He said it is unlikely Congress intended FDA law to preclude all trademark actions in the food and beverage arena because that would mean “less policing” of misleading labels than in other industries.

Crazed gunmen and mass shootings have become such a common occurrence, we’re almost numb. But it took a photo of Danny, the K9 companion of RCMP officer Dave Ross, to bring the tragedy of gun violence home. The photo, of Danny the German shepherd sniffing his master’s hat and looking around for him at the funeral, went viral this week, and will continue to haunt us in the days to come. There’s always Justin Bieber. It’s not quite comic relief, but it will do. Notorious Canadian twit Justin Bieber continues to make the wrong kind of news, this time for getting caught on video using the N word, not once but twice. It doesn’t really matter that both incidents happened when he was 14 and 15. His goose is now pretty much cooked and he’s barely out of his teens . Fresh out of PR spin, he’s turned to God, and was recently baptized in a New York pastor’s bathtub. Well, whatever works, but I suspect God is too busy helping the Tea Party Brat to take care of ours.

Augmented reality goes old-school ANDREW FIFIELD

Pothole vigilantism goes artsy The perfect pothole might not exist for many people — but for artist Jim Bachor, it’s one with a nice oval shape. Bachor began filling potholes a little more than a year ago, after one in front of his house became a hassle. He doesn’t just fill them with cement, though. He’s turned pothole-filling into a public art project. He fills them with mosaics. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Public art, practical outcome While his art isn’t a permanent solution to the problem, it’s at least a small fix, he says. The city hasn’t shut down his project, and some community members have expressed gratitude. Gerry Shaheen says Bachor and his crew are welcome anytime to fill potholes in his city. “I’ll pave the way for them,” Shaheen said with smirk. “No pun intended.” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


• Bachor uses the Chicago city fl ag design in his pothole art. • Some versions hold phone numbers to local auto repair shops, while others simply read POTHOLE. • His most recent installment — #21914 — pokes fun at the huge number of potholes that exist in the city.

So augmented reality has only been around for a few years, and we’re still a ways away from it catching on in a huge way. However, that hasn’t stopped animator Marty Cooper (@hombre_mcsteez) from already deciding to take the modern edge off the technology by using a few basic colours and some animation cells to give augmented reality a nice, vintage feel. As a bonus, you’ll also get to meet the cutest baby sasquatch you’ve ever seen. (Via Gnarcal/YouTube)

Reel Guys



The 21 Jump Street high school undercover cops Schmidt and Jenko (Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum) are back, but this time they’re narco cops. That is until they botch an investigation into drug lord Ghost’s (Peter Stormare) operation. Their failure gets them demoted back to the 22 Jump Street (they moved across the road) program. Jump Street’s Captain Dickson (Ice Cube) sends them undercover, as unlikely brothers Brad and Doug McQuaid, to college to arrest the supplier of a drug named WHYPHY (WiFi). The bumbling, but self-confident duo infiltrates the college, but campus life threatens to blow apart their partnership. • Richard: ••••• • Mark: •••••

but the self-aware jokes did make me laugh even though it is essentially a remake of the first film, with a few more Laurel and Hardy slapstick gags and amped-up explosions. What was your take?

Jump Street. Tatum and Hill’s second outing as bumbling cops takes self-aware jabs at the business of sequels Richard: Mark, Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum are producers on the new Jump Street film, which, I guess, explains all the jokes about how much everything cost. At one point Hill actually says, “It’s way more expensive for no reason at all.” I don’t know how much the movie cost to make,

Mark: Richard, I liked this instalment way more than the previous outing. I loved all the self-referential gags, including the brilliant end-credits that hilariously make fun of the inevitable sequels that will follow. I credit the directors, Phil Lord and Chris Miller, for the knowing pop culture sophistication they brought to the film.

They directed the first one, too, but they’ve grown more confident since their Lego Movie hit, which also tweaked the audience’s expectations in a similar way. RC: The end credit sequence, which maps out the next sequels from number 3 to installment 43 — they go to Beauty School and Magic School among other places of higher learning — is probably the funniest part of the movie. The stuff that comes before is amiable, relying on the Mutt and Jeff chemistry of Hill and Tatum for laughs. It’s boisterous and aims to please, but best of all are the self-referential jokes.

By clowning around about the difficulty in making the sequel better than the original, they’re winking at the audience, acknowledging that this is basically a spoof of Hollywood sequels. It’s subversive, meta and kind of brilliant. MB: Yep. Because I can see explosions and pratfalls in any “action comedy”; it’s the subversive stuff that makes this movie stand apart. The intergender fight sequence between Jonah Hill and Jillian Bell (who is incredible throughout the film) is as subversive a take on sexual politics and

“rape culture” that you will ever find. It’s these kinds of scenes that kept me laughing through the picture. The black stoner twins, played expertly by The Lucas Bros, were a masterpiece of writing and comic timing. RC: I agree, but ill-timed jokes about Maya Angelou and Tracy Morgan were sore thumbs for me, but that’s more coincidence, I guess than bad taste. MB: I don’t think those jokes were deliberate, but they sure broke the spell for me. But then Ice Cube’s comic rants got me back.

Why Australia is a perfect setting for a post-apocalyptic film more the people that might kill you. In a way, it’s a kind of geopolitical inversion of the world in present day, because the world of The Rover in a way sort of exists on the planet today. It just happens to be in super-violent, resource-rich countries like Nigeria or West African states where there still is an infrastructure and official organization, but it’s just incredibly cutthroat, and there is violence bubbling under the surface at all times.

The Rover. Aussie filmmaker takes to his home to film tale about a man out for revenge in a hostile world Ned Ehrbar

Metro World News in Hollywood

Australian filmmaker David Michod made quite a first impression in Hollywood with his 2010 debut, Animal Kingdom, so a lot of eyes were on him as he chose a followup. That choice is now here in the form of The Rover, a post-apocalyptic tale about a man (Guy Pearce) out for revenge against the guys who stole his car. Australia seems to lend itself to these post-apocalyptic settings. I love this kind of movie, people stranded in a really

inhospitable landscape. And in some ways it doesn’t get more inhospitable than Australia largely because 80 per cent of the country is desert and there are so few people out there. It’s both epically beautiful and wholly terrifying when you’re out there, because you know that only a couple of little things would need to go

wrong and you could die. For instance, New Zealand doesn’t really have any animals, so there’s lots of beautiful stuff to look at, but it also makes it a little bit dull. I realized how much I love roaming in the bush in Australia because at any moment something that might kill you could pop out. Of course, in The Rover it’s

There is a sort of sense of anger threaded through this narrative. I can’t remember at what point in the writing process this started to happen, but I started to funnel a lot of my anger and despair into the world of the movie and specifically into Guy’s character — anger at the willingness that the people today seem to have to just let the world fall into disrepair

solely to service the rampant greed of a very small number of people. You look at the invasion of Iraq on a certain level, and it would seem to me that the only reason that administration embarked on that ludicrous endeavour was to enrich their friends. I mean, to cause so much suffering in order to enrich a small number of people is pathologically evil. And it’s difficult, when you think about these things, not to get angry. Exclusively online

Card countin’ Affleck gets kicked out of Windsor casino A day trip to Caesars Windsor turned into a dark night for Ben Affleck last month. According to Radar Online, the 41-year-old actor took a break from filming Batman v. Superman in Detroit to hit the Canadian casino on May 31. “He sat down and played for roughly 20 minutes before security heard he was

there. They made the dealers stop what they were doing and asked him to leave. Ben seemed pretty mad,” a source told Radar. Affleck is a well-known card shark, having been banned from casinos in Las Vegas for counting cards; his reputation appears to have preceded him at Caesars. Metro

Next time you’re driving in America, glance at the bike lane. Do you see a lovely butt and very shiny hair? You may be sharing the road with a princess-adjacent socialite. Beginning June 15, Pippa Middleton is biking across America. Pippa and her brother James Middleton are participating in the Race Across America, a cross-country bicycle race from Oceanside, Calif., to Annapolis, Md.

Justin Bieber

They’ll be part of an eightperson relay team with their friend James Matthews, raising money for the foundation named for James’ brother Michael Matthews. Michael Matthews passed away at the age of 22 while descending from Mount Everest. The foundation begun in his name raises money for education for poor children around the world. If you want to cheer on the Middletons, I would aim for the nice flat Illinois bit to see her at her best. I imagine the Rockies are terrible for hair shininess.

Bieber says I love you, one deleted Instagram photo at a time Social media is the bane of the fickle heart, as Justin Bieber is proving with his erratic postings pertaining to on-again, off-again girlfriend Selena Gomez. While it has seemed that the couple had finally split for good in recent months, Bieber doesn’t seem so sure.

Just this week, he posted a close-up photo of the two in an embrace with the caption, “Our love is unconditional.” Suggesting a tentative Romeo, he quickly deleted the posting — but not before many of his 16 million Instagram followers screengrabbed it and re-posted it.

Pink is the new white when it comes to casual back deck sipping wine. Rosé has been the warm weather go-to for Europeans for years and Canada is starting to catch up. Sadly, our opinion of blush wines has been influenced by white zinfandel: a popular, but polarizing, version that’s typically confectionary and usually sweet (most rosé is dry). Though pleasant enough, their reputation as a simple tipple for those new to wine hasn’t done classic rosé styles any favours. A rosé’s pink hue comes from dark grape skins coming into contact for a short while with the juice. The longer they’re together, the darker the wine. Spain has a history of rosé production using indigenous grape varietals. The Marqués de Cáceres 2013 Rosado ($13.95 $16.29) is made from tempranillo and its balance of juicy, berry fruit with a refreshing dryness is a benchmark. As well as tasting great, rosé wines are fantastic with food — especially if the dish is eclectic or has an aggressive, dominating flavour. PRICES REFLECT THE RANGE ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

Neymar’s brace keeps party jumping in Brazil

Scan the image with the Metro news app to relive some of the match’s critical moments


Neymar gave Brazil a winning start to its home World Cup, scoring twice to lead the host nation to an unconvincing 3-1 victory over Croatia in the opening game on Thursday. In his 50th match with Brazil, the 22-year-old forward scored a goal in each half to help the hosts survive an early scare and escape disaster in front of a packed Itaquerao Stadium after Croatia had taken an early lead. Marcelo found his own net while trying to clear a low cross by Ivica Olic in the 11th minute, but Neymar then showed why the nation’s high hopes are all pinned on him. He equalized in the 29th minute, clearing a defender in midfield before making a run toward the edge of the area and firing a perfectly placed low shot that went in off the post. The game turned on a controversial penalty awarded by Japanese referee Yuichi Nishimura in the 71st minute when striker Fred went down

inside the area under minimal contact from defender Dejan Lovren. Neymar scored from the spot for his 33rd goal with Brazil. The Barcelona star got a standing ovation when he was substituted near the end of the match. “It’s important to start these tournaments with the right foot, with a victory,” Neymar said. “I’m happy that I got to score, but the entire team deserves credit. We maintained our calm and showed we could battle back.” The Croatians were furious. “If that was a penalty, we should be playing basketball. Those kinds of fouls are penalized there,” Croatia coach Niko Kovac said. “That is shameful, this is not a World Cup referee. He had one kind of criteria for them and another for us. The rules were not the same,” Ko-

The San Antonio Spurs have three more chances to grab the championship trophy that slipped away last year. The way they’re dominating the Miami Heat, they might need just one. Kawhi Leonard had 20 points and 14 rebounds, and the Spurs routed the Heat again, winning 107-86 on Thursday night to open a commanding 3-1 lead in the

NBA Finals. The Spurs can win their fifth NBA championship with a victory at home in Game 5 on Sunday and avenge their seven-game loss to Miami last year. And if the Heat are going to deny them again, it will take the biggest comeback in NBA Finals history. LeBron James tried to keep the Heat in it with 28 points and eight rebounds,

but Dwyane Wade was just 1-of-10 through three quarters and finished with 10 points. No team has overcome a 3-1 deficit in the championship round, and the way they were outclassed twice on their home floor makes it hard to imagine the two-time champions being the first. Tony Parker added 19 points, and Tim Duncan had

10 points and 11 rebounds for the Spurs, who shot 57 per cent from the field. The Spurs lost twice in Miami to end last year’s finals, their only defeat in the championship round. They won their two games in South Florida this time by a combined 40 points. If the Heat force a Game 6, it would be in Miami Tuesday. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SPORTS WEEKEND, June 13-15, 2014

Best not good enough in this cup final NHL. After Game 4 effort fell short, Kings will try to wrap up cup in sunny California After feeling satisfied about his team’s play in three losses to open the Stanley Cup final, New York Rangers coach Alain Vigneault could easily empathize with the Los Angeles Kings when the roles were reversed in Game 4. “It was a real tough game, I think, for L.A,” Vigneault said. “It was probably their best game of the playoffs that they’ve played against us.” And it was a loss, as the Kings failed to finish off the sweep thanks to 40 saves by Henrik Lundqvist, one by Anton Stralman and one by a combination of snow built up in the crease and Derek Stepan. That the Rangers needed so much luck and strong goaltending only underscored just how dominant Los Angeles was.

Just don’t tell the resultsoriented Kings that. Even after players talked after wins about needing to play better, the selfcriticism was turned up despite outshooting the Rangers 41-19. “At the end of the day, we weren’t good enough to win,” captain Dustin Brown said. “It’s about finding a way to be better.” The chance to do that comes in Friday’s Game 5 back in Los Angeles with the Kings still in command of the series and the cup waiting nearby. After Game 4 at Madison Square Garden, it didn’t feel as though the Kings were on the cusp of the title, like it did after they went up three games to none. All around the visiting locker-room there was talk about what areas needed to be better, from start to finish. “We still probably could play better for a full game,” fourth-line centre Mike Richards said. “It took us a little bit to get into it again for whatever reason.” The Canadian Press

Players union accepts league’s new deal The CFL Players’ Association has voted to accept a new collective bargaining agreement with the league. The union said in a statement Thursday night that its players voted to accept the fiveyear contract reached Saturday with the CFL. “It’s a YES!” offensive lineman Peter Dyakowski, a player rep with the Hamilton TigerCats, tweeted. “We’ve got a new CBA! “It’s time to get back to football! #Everybodywins.”

Split vote

“The mood is mixed. Guys are entitled to their own opinion and every man is going to make his own choice.” Argonauts centre Jeff Keeping, a member of the union executive

The CFL’s board of governors is scheduled to vote on the deal Friday and the expectation

is they’ll accept it. The CFLPA didn’t provide a breakdown of the votes but a majority of players — 50 per cent plus one — on six of the nine CFL teams was required for the deal to be accepted. The players voted in favour despite many expressing their unhappiness publicly and on social media about the deal. It offers a $5-million salary cap in the first year of the agreement after the CFLPA had originally sought a $6.24-million cap. The Canadian Press

“I think (there were) couple of times where we didn’t make it tough on him. The pucks were sitting there. But the pucks he’s going to see, he’s going to stop. That’s just how it is.” Kings forward Anze Kopitar on Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist


It’s just ‘Johnny Backup’ for now Johnny Manziel’s No. 2 jersey has double meaning. He’s behind Brian Hoyer. Browns coach Mike Pettine said Hoyer is “securely ahead” in the competition to be Cleveland’s starting quarterback this season, but his lead over Manziel isn’t “insurmountable.” After the Browns ended their three-day mandatory mini-camp Thursday, Pettine sized up the battle as a friendly fight that will heat up when the team opens training camp late in July. The Associated Press

Lesser role

Richards a rare sight Brad Richards looked to be on his way out of New York in 2013, when former Rangers coach John Tortorella not only demoted the veteran centre but scratched him in the playoffs. A year later, coach Alain Vigneault started down the same path by putting the 34-year-old on left wing of the Rangers’ fourth line in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup final. Richards played just nine minutes 22 seconds at even strength and a total of 13:20. Vigneault said he met with his lines individually, including Richards, Brian Boyle and Derek Dorsett. He wanted to spell out his reasoning and assignments. “I mean, at this time of the year it’s only about one thing: It’s about the team,” Vigneault said Wednesday after the Rangers’ 2-1 win. Richards has no points in the final and just four goals and four assists in 23 games since a strong opener against the Philadelphia Flyers. The Canadian Pressw

Murray finally loses on grass Andy Murray was denied his 20th successive win on grass when he was beaten 7-6 (10), 6-2 by Radek Stepanek in the third round at Queen’s Club on Thursday. Murray, the defending champion and No. 3 seed, claimed his first match win at Queen’s in 2005 and went on to win the Wimbledon warmup three times. But he failed to take advantage of eight set points after leading the first-set tiebreaker 6-2, and Stepanek survived to convert with his second set point. The Associated Press

A master’s touch

“You just have to position the ball correctly at all times.” Graeme McDowell, 2010 U.S. Open champion on the solid, mistake-free golf needed to win this tournament

three of the last five holes Thursday for a 5-under 65, the lowest score from any of the three Opens played at Pinehurst No. 2. The German got up and down for par at the 18th hole, rolling in a testy six-

foot putt to beat the 66 shot by Sweden’s Peter Hedblom during the second round in 2005. Graeme McDowell, Kevin Na and Brendon de Jonge were three shots back. Kaymer beat a loaded field at The Players last month, snapping a stretch of 29 tournaments without a victory stretching over 18 months. Ten other players were in the clubhouse at 69, meaning there were more underpar rounds in this opening round than the last two years combined.

Tennis. Nadal loses to relative unknown Rafael Nadal was knocked out in the second round of the grass-court Gerry Weber Open on Thursday, losing 6-4, 6-1 to German wild card Dustin Brown. “The only way I could have tried to do more was resisting with my serve, something I hadn’t practiced a lot these days,” said Nadal. Brown, the world No. 85, broke Nadal’s serve at the fifth attempt to win the first set, and he pulled off two audacious lobs in succession to break the Spaniard again early in the second.
