Lawyer: Winnipeg ER death must be ruled a homicide Brian Sinclair. Inquest told negative stereotypes led to assumptions that ultimately contributed to death of man who waited 34 hours in ER



Lawyers for the family of an aboriginal man who died during a 34-hour emergency room wait say an inquest judge must rule the death a homicide. They have also asked the judge to recommend Manitoba call a public inquiry into how aboriginal people are treated in the health-care system. Vilko Zbogar told Judge Tim Preston that failing to provide medical care to a sick person is akin to failing to provide the necessities of life. “It was homicide,” Zbogar said during final arguments Thursday at the Brian Sinclair

inquest. “You just need to find that the death was caused by human contribution.” Police have already investigated the death but did not lay any criminal charges. It’s been almost six years since Sinclair, a double-amputee, died at Winnipeg’s Health Sciences Centre after languishing in the waiting room for hours, vomiting and slowly dying from a treatable bladder infection. An internal report following his death found some staff assumed he was drunk and waiting for a ride or was a homeless man seeking shelter. Murray Tratchenberg, another lawyer representing the family, said those racist assumptions led to his death. Why Sinclair sat in his wheelchair slowly dying for hours without any medical attention cannot be explained by an overcrowded emergency room, by the physical layout or even by the fact that the Sin-

clair was never triaged, he said. Many nurses, aides and security guards saw Sinclair in the emergency room but assumed he was “sleeping it off” or homeless, Tratchenberg said. “We’re talking about negative stereotyping — stereotyping that led to numerous assumptions being made, all of which significantly contributed to Mr. Sinclair’s death,” he told the inquest. “It caused medical staff, who had the responsibility to intervene and provide Mr. Sinclair with the care he needed, not to do so.” The inquest didn’t delve into why those assumptions were made or what to do to prevent them, the Sinclair lawyers argued. The Sinclair family lawyers withdrew from the inquest halfway through when the judge chose to focus on overcrowding in emergency rooms, but they returned for final recommendations.

Wasylycia-Leis vows to bolster accountability at city hall SHANE GIBSON

Judy Wasylycia-Leis says she’ll improve transparency at city hall if elected Mayor of Winnipeg, by creating an independent watchdog to provide oversight of both city business and the personal and professional conduct of elected officials and city managers. “I’ve heard nothing but people saying (they’ve) lost trust and lost faith… they are justifiably outraged by things like the fire hall fiasco and the cost overruns at the new police headquarters,” said the candidate at a press conference held on the front steps of her Bannerman Avenue home Thursday morning. “Winnipeggers deserve better, and I believe we can do better.”

Wasylycia-Leis would create the watchdog by adding teeth to the powers already afforded to the city auditor. Under her plan, the auditor would be able to conduct value-for-money audits that could be triggered by council, city employees or citizens. The office, which she’s calling Accountability Winnipeg, would also have oversight of a new lobbyist registry, act as an ethics commissioner and provide protection to whistleblowers. The candidate said she’d be willing to invest as much as $300,000 of city money into the additional resources for the office, funds she said may be partly recouped by the work of the office itself. “I expect that because of this office we will see savings that’ll then be reinvested back into the city,” she said. Wasylycia-Leis also vowed to keep her reign as mayor open by disclosing her personal assets, making her calendar available online, disclosing all expenses and by offering open office hours one Saturday a month for Winnipeggers to come in and chat.

Bombers call for transportation review after death

Winnipeg Blue Bombers CEO Wade Miller. SHANNON VAN RAES/FOR METRO

Mayor Sam Katz says he’s game to speak to Winnipeg Blue Bombers brass about the team’s concerns over active transportation safety around Investors Group Field following the death of a fan after being hit by a car while cycling to the stadium Monday. Long-time fan Dick Stevenson, 69, died in hospital after

being hit by a car near Bishop Grandin Boulevard and Pembina Highway while pedalling to the Bombers’ first pre-season game of the year. After releasing a statement Tuesday night expressing shock and sadness over the man’s death, the Bombers released a second statement Wednesday morning calling on the city to

“immediately review and assess all active transportation routes and infrastructure” leading to the stadium. “Ensuring fan safety is paramount,” said Bombers president Wade Miller, “especially for fans who are walking or cycling to and from Investors Group Field.” A spokesperson for the mayor said early Thursday Katz “fre-

quently communicates” with the Bombers, and is “always open to discuss concerns and requests.” But a city official said later in the day they’ll wait until an ongoing police investigation into the crash is complete before changes, if any, are made to bike routes in the area. SHANE GIBSON/METRO

Museum to open doors in 100 days Counting down. New promo videos capture ‘spirit’ of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights Bernice Pontanilla

The Canadian Museum for Human Rights has 100 days to go before its opening date, and officials marked the event by unveiling new promotional videos and information about an August visit by 150 travel journalists. Stuart Murray, the museum’s president and CEO, said he was most proud of how much Winnipeg talent went into the videos, from the children singing to those who produced it. “These new videos truly capture both the scale and the spirit of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights,” said

Murray during Thursday’s news conference. “Not only are the videos visually stunning, but they celebrate the museum’s unique relevance to Canadians in all parts of the country.” Award-winning Lank/ Beach Productions produced the videos, Systematic Design Inc. did the animation work and Joe Silva of Purescape Recordings composed the background music that features schoolchildren — all from Winnipeg. Museum officials said two

of the four videos, in both English and French, have begun to air on national television networks. The museum is also receiving more and more national and international coverage, said Murray, adding that it was the Canadian Tourism Commission that chose Winnipeg to host the GoMedia 2014 event. A reception for the 150 travel journalists attending this conference will take place at the museum, which opens officially Sept. 20.

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. The UN Security Council met on the crisis, underscoring the growing international alarm over the advances by fighters from the group known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. the associated press

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 public spending on a sports tournament in a nation with profound social needs. The protest was peaceful, but there were worries that could change as several 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, firing canisters of tear gas and using 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 journal-

ists were also injured. “I’m totally against the Cup,” said protester Tameres Mota, a university student at the Sao Paulo demonstration. “We’re in a country where the money doesn’t go to the community, and meanwhile we see all these millions spent on stadiums.” Meanwhile, about 300 protesters gathered in central Rio de Janeiro. Police used tear gas and took a few protesters there into custody. In Belo Horizonte, another Cup host city, about 200 protesters clashed with police. Some smashed the glass doors and windows of two banks. About 1,000 gathered in Porto Alegre, with some breaking windows and hurling stones, authorities said. Police dispersed them with tear gas and rubber bullets. Police used the same tactics to scatter about 150 protesters in the capital city of Brasilia, according to the Estado de S.Paulo newspaper.

The demonstrations in recent months have paled in comparison to those last year, when a million people took to the streets on a single night, airing laments including the sorry state of Brazil’s public services despite the heavy tax burden its citizens endure. • Those protests were largely spontaneous and no single group organized them.

• According to David Fleischer, a political scientist at the University of Brasilia, the protests have shrunk because they are “very specific in their aims” and thus “easy for the police to control.” • Because the recent protests have been organized by established groups, there are leaders with whom the government can negotiate.

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 train and work hard to reach goals, the importance of fair play and teamwork, and the need to respect and honour 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. “Let nobody turn their back on society and feel excluded!” he said. 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

Former teacher dies in hoarder’s squalor, cat in lap California. Rita Corpin, 72, was pronounced dead in her yard of natural causes; she owned three homes 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.

Help was available

“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.

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

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

Brad Pitt joined Angelina Jolie at a London summit on sexual violence Thursday, lending the couple’s star power to the campaign to end rape in war zones. The four-day London conference is organized by British Foreign Secretary William Hague and Jolie, a United Nations special envoy. 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.

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 mar-

The wait is over. Brazil kicked off the 2014 FIFA World Cup with a football-style Carnival before thousands of dancing yellow-clad fans, who seemed eager to put construction delays and protests behind them. To get you in the game, Metro has you covered with the latest from Brazil.

Will soccer outshine the protests?

J-Lo helps World Cup kick off in style Singers Jennifer Lopez, Pitbull and Claudia Leitte perform during the opening ceremony of the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil before the Group A match between Brazil and Croatia at Arena de Sao Paulo on June 12, 2014 in Sao Paulo, Brazil. J-Lo — who turned up for the performance despite earlier reports that she wouldn’t be able to attend — rapper Pitbull and pop star Leitte bounced around a giant stage that resembled a peeled melon.

Brazil takes cup for sticker shock 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.

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


“Prices in Rio are absurd. I still like it … but it’s not paradise.” Maria Anda, a Norwegian artist who has lived in Brazil for a year.

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 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 Bra-

zil 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 ASSOCIATED PRESS

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 of anger,” said Edson Carvalho, an office assistant watching 10 barefoot young men play a pick-up soccer match in Rio’s Botafogo neighbourhood.

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 Chief operating officer

Twitter to go without a COO Twitter’s chief operating officer, Ali Rowghani, has resigned from his post and won’t be replaced as CEO Dick Costolo seeks more direct involvement with the company’s engineering and product teams. Twitter Inc. said in regulatory filing Thursday that Rowghani’s responsibilities will be shifted to other executives. It did not give a reason for his departure. With the shift, Twitter joins other tech companies such as Google, Yahoo, Apple and Netflix that do not have a COO. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

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.

People can also buy Powermat accessories to charge devices that aren’t compatible, Starbucks noted.



Bank of Canada governor Stephen Poloz still believes the housing market is due for a soft landing but warns: Look out if it crashes. The central banker made the assessment after the release of the latest semi-annual financial system review, a kind of stress test on financial weak

spots that suggests a crash in Canada’s real estate market would have devastating impact on the economy. And such a crash could be triggered by a number of events — a recession that causes widespread unemployment, rising interest rates and even global shocks like failures in China’s opaque shadow banking system. All such events would dampen growth and cut demand and prices for Canadian resource exports. Still, Poloz told reporters at a news conference following the release of the report Thurs-

day that he believes the worst won’t happen. “We still are pretty confident ... that we will achieve a soft landing in housing,” he said. “It’s vulnerable but not risky.” Deputy governor Carolyn Wilkins says data backing the soft landing scenario includes a slowdown in housing starts, cooling in the construction of condos and the plateauing of household debt ratios, although at levels near those that existed prior to the U.S. meltdown in 2008.

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)

Two is better than one Synopsis

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: •••••

Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum are producers on 22 Jump Street. CONTRIBUTED

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,

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? 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.

Pedro and ligers and tots, oh my! Gosh! Ten years after cracking us up as Napoleon Dynamite, Jon Heder reflects on the movie that launched his career Of all the memorable lines in Napoleon Dynamite, the quirky comedy that introduced the world to “ligers” and “Vote for Pedro” T-shirts, there is one that gets hollered at star Jon Heder more than any other. “Tina, you fat lard, come get some dinner,” says Heder, easily adopting Napoleon’s indignant, breathy voice after all these years. The line — directed at his grandmother’s pet llama, Tina — perfectly captures the offbeat tone of the 2004 film. Made for just $400,000, the movie was picked up by Fox Searchlight and Paramount after premiering at the Sundance Film Festival and made $46 million worldwide. Heder, now 36, celebrated the film’s 10th anniversary this week with other cast members in Los Angeles, where a statue of Napoleon was unveiled on the Fox Studios lot. In a phone interview with The Canadian Press, he said the film’s cult following continues to this day. “I think people really related to Napoleon, whether they felt like him growing up or knew someone like that,” he said. “Even though it’s kind of overthe-top and funny, he’s trying to get skills, he’s trying to figure out what he’s good at and everyone can relate to that.” The bizarre comedy set in a rural Idaho town follows Napo-

embarrassing family material,’” said Hess with a laugh. “The character of Napoleon, especially — I come from a family of six boys and just about everything that is said in the film or happens in the film, my brothers either said or experienced firsthand.” Hess wrote a short film featuring the Napoleon char-

Australian filmmaker David Michod made quite a first impression 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 simple post-apocalyptic tale about a man (Guy Pearce) out for revenge against the guys who stole his car.

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 of the fact that at any moment something that might kill you could pop out.

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. For instance, New Zealand doesn’t really have

Of course, in The Rover it’s 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, resourcerich countries like Nigeria or West African states where there still is an infrastructure and official organization, but it’s just incredibly cutthroat,

acter about a year and a half before the feature. He was struggling to find the right actor to play the central role, before he remembered Heder from one of his classes at film school. “I acted out for him the voice and some of the mannerisms of how he was supposed to sound and look, but then Jon took it and ... he just became the character and totally brought him to life,” Hess said. When Heder read the script for the short film, he said he immediately identified with the Napoleon character because he also grew up in a big family of boys. “I got it right away,” Heder said. “I knew exactly who that person was because so much of Napoleon was in my younger brothers and in myself. We had very similar experiences. I loved it. I was like, ‘This is genius.’” Neither expected the film to go on to be a smash hit or attract a cult following that has lasted a decade. Heder, who later appeared in the Will Ferrell comedy Blades of Glory and Kristen Bell romance When In Rome, said that at first he struggled with the spotlight. “Getting recognized, I got used to it, but it was weird. It changed everything. I’ve forever got this thing — it can either be a cloud or a rainbow — just hovering over you that is the movie Napoleon Dynamite,” he said.

Asked whether he ever gets tired of being so closely associated with one character, Heder said: “I would, if I really didn’t like him. “But I love the movie. I’m so blessed that it was my first film,” he added. “It’s very close to my heart ... I was kind of moving on with my life (at that time). I got married. I was starting my career, and I couldn’t have asked for a better way to do it.” Over the years, the film has spurred countless fan tributes — a YouTube search for “Napoleon Dynamite dance” reveals just how many people have dutifully learned and recreated Heder’s improvised boogie to Jamiroquai’s Canned Heat. But Heder says the strangest fan request he ever received happened while he was speaking at a college several years ago. A fan wanted Heder to recreate a scene where Uncle Rico throws a steak at Napoleon’s head. “This kid came up with a steak and he wanted me to throw the steak at him as part of a retribution act for what Uncle Rico did to me,” recalled Heder. “So I got to throw a steak at someone and I nailed him and it felt great,” he said. “He loved it. Everybody was cheering him on. He felt like a rock star. I felt like a rock star. It was a win-win.”

and there is violence bubbling under the surface at all times.

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.

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

The Interview. James Franco and Seth Rogen in North Korea as assassins? Two talk-show hosts are bound for a presidential chat in North Korea but find themselves given a conflicting mission by the secret service in The Interview. Due this fall, the comedy sees James Franco and Seth Rogen’s characters discover that Kim Jong-un loves their celebrity news show. Seizing the opportunity to land an exclusive interview and sidestep from showbiz gossip into serious reportage, the buddies set off for North Korea. But the CIA soon co-opts their travel plans by recruiting them as secret agents and giving them a licence to kill. Lizzy Caplan of Masters of Sex and Cloverfield plays their long-suffering CIA handler, while Korean-American actor Randall Park (Larry Crowne, The Mindy Project) becomes Kim Jong-un. Rogen and Evan Goldberg co-direct, just as they did on This Is The End. The Interview is set for release on October 10 in North America, one year after filming started, with global release dates in the weeks that follow. AFP

Ben Affleck

Card countin’ Affleck gets kicked out of Windsor casino, to the surprise of no one in particular 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. Multiple calls to the casino by Metro were not returned by press time Thursday. 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 crosscountry bicycle race from Oceanside, Calif., to Annapolis, Md. They’ll be part of an eight-person 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. Of course, Pippa’s part of an eight-person relay team, so you might spot a random rugged Englishman instead of Her Buttness, but those are nice too.

Lindsay Lohan is looking to turn over a whole new leaf, and that apparently involves changing one very iconic part of her image. “She’s always loved her freckles — well, pretended to, anyway — but now she’s decided it’s time to get rid of them and she’s looking into having them either bleached or lasered away,” a sources tells the National Enquirer. “Lindsay is known for trying new things, but she’s shocked friends and family members by suddenly getting irate over her freckles.”

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.


Louis C.K. asks TMZ to take down Tracy Morgan crash photos Louis C.K. is asking TMZ to do what it never has before: Have a little class. The gossip site has posted footage taken after the crash that killed comedian Jimmy Mack and injured four others, including Tracy Morgan and comedian Ardie Fuqua. The footage, taken by a passerby, allegedly shows rescuers lifting the injured Fuqua out of the vehicle and onto the road. Louis C.K. has joined Fuqua’s daughter Krizya Guterriez in pleading for the video to come down — or at least for the ghoulishly curious public to stop clicking on it.

Colour your glass pink LIQUID ASSETS

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.


Expect grate-ness Grilled Caramelized Onion and Feta Pizza. Don’t limit this family favourite to a hot oven. It can easily be made in your backyard Onions are a bit of a reflex buy for many. Every time these people go to the grocer they always buy a bag of onions. They’re a kitchen staples so you must always be about to run out, right? It’s a good theory. But if that was the case, you wouldn’t currently have 15 pounds of onions on the counter. That’s where this grillfriendly way of using a whole mess of caramelized onions

comes in. The pizza is topped with onions and garlic, spiked with caraway seeds and golden raisins, finished with roasted red peppers, pine nuts, and crumbled feta for a kind of Middle Eastern take on grilled pizza


Set the pizza crust, in the bag, on the counter to come to room temperature.

2. Meanwhile, in large, heavy

pot, such as a cast-iron Dutch oven, over medium heat, melt the butter. Add onions and cook, stirring often, for 20 minutes. Stir in raisins, garlic and caraway seeds, then cook another 3 minutes, or until onions are significantly reduced and caramelized. Stir in the red peppers, then transfer the mixture to a bowl and set aside.

Ingredients • 20-oz ball purchased pizza crust • 2 tbsp butter • 2 medium yellow onions, thinly sliced • 1/3 cup golden raisins • 4 cloves garlic, minced • 1 tbsp caraway seeds • 12-oz jar roasted red peppers, drained and sliced • Olive oil • 1/3 cup pine nuts • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese

3. When the onions are done, heat the grill to medium-high. On a lightly floured counter, roll the pizza dough out to a 14-inch round. Brush the top of the dough with oil, then trans-

fer it to a large plate or platter for carrying it to the grill. Have your remaining ingredients prepared, then bring everything to the grill.

4. Flip the dough onto the grill,

oiled side down, and cook for 5 minutes, or until the bottom is lightly browned and puffed. Reduce the heat to mediumlow, then brush the top of the dough with oil. Use tongs to flip the dough.


Spread the onion mixture evenly over the crust, then sprinkle it with pine nuts and feta. Cover the grill and cook for 4 to 6 minutes, or until the bottom is lightly browned and the feta is softened. Serve immediately. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

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

World Cup. Hosts open tournament with 3-1 win; Croatia shaken by controversial penalty 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

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,” Kovac said. As Croatia searched desperately for an equalizer, Oscar added to the lead in the first minute of injury time with a

Cristiano Ronaldo cut short a training session with Portugal on Thursday, leaving the field with an ice pack over his left knee — indicating that his tendinitis may still be bothering the star forward. Ronaldo trained with the rest of the team for about 15-20 minutes doing physical exercises but then did not take part in the rest of the session with full ball drills. Instead, he stretched on his own and signed a few shirts for fans before going to sit on the bench. When he left, he had an ice pack over his left knee. Ronaldo has been bothered by left leg injuries ahead of the World Cup, and was sidelined for two weeks with tendinitis in the knee and a thigh problem. However, Portugal midfielder Joao Moutinho said there was nothing to worry about concerning Ronaldo’s health. “Ever since he started to train with us he has been 100 per cent like the rest of us,” Moutinho said. “Everything is fine with him... The ice is normal after training.” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Marve on a mission at Bomber camp CFL. After promising late-game performance, QB becoming a Bombers fan favourite Robert Marve knows that when you give Winnipeg Blue Bomber fans something to cheer about, you feel the love. Marve is one of three quarterbacks coach Mike O’Shea says are in the running to back up starter Drew Willy for the Bombers. He spent a scant few minutes on the field last Thursday at the end of a 24-22 loss to the Toronto Argonauts but didn’t waste a second. He rushed for 17 yards and connected with three out of four passes, including one for a touchdown to rook-

ie receiver Donavon Kemp. It gave fans a reason to cheer, and they responded in person and on Twitter. “I did get some Bomber love,” he said Thursday after practice. “That was nice. The fans are awesome and I appreciate all the support.” Marve will get another chance to play Saturday when the Bombers visit the Calgary Stampeders in Calgary, but coach Mike O’Shea couldn’t say how much. “We’ll see all four,” he said. “Now how the time’s broken down, we’ll see how it all plays out. But the plan right now is, as I said yesterday, to give Drew all the time he needs to feel comfortable and for the offence to get comfortable with him.” Willy also didn’t sound too concerned Thursday about how much time he

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.

I felt good in the game. My knee felt fine when I was running so I’m ready to go physically.” Robert Marve, who has had three operations on the ACL in his left knee

will get as the team plays its last pre-season game before their CFL home opener against the Argos June 26. He had two seasons with the Saskatchewan Roughriders in a backup capacity and at least on Thursday was getting a lot more playing time in practice. O’Shea insists the role of backup in Winnipeg is still very much up for grabs. In terms of CFL experience, Max Hall would seem to have the inside track. He finished last season as the pivot the Bombers turned to most often as they struggled to find a way to win. But they also brought in Marve and Brian Brohm to audition. At just 25, Marve is the youngest of the three. A high-school star in Florida, his college career was marred by three operations to repair three tears of the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. Likely as a result, he was undrafted in the 2013 NFL draft. The Canadian Press

Best not always good enough in cup final Still alive. Lundqvist’s goaltending keeps Los Angeles from clean sweep of final 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 self-

criticism 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
