TORONTO • WEEKEND, JUNE 25-27, 2010

STEVE RUSSELL/TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Cyclists take Native rights Protests ramping up to TTC’s first bike shelter INSTALLED The day before the TTC’s first official bike shelter was installed at St. Clair West station there were three ring-and-post parking spots. The day after, 20 bikes were parked in the new shelter. Where those other bikes were parked before is anybody’s guess, says Coun. Joe Mihevc, vice-chair of the Toronto Transit Commission. It’s a symptom of the pent-up demand for amenities that make it easy to integrate cycling into transit trips. The shelter is similar to those at GO Transit stations. Placed near the Wells Hill entrance, it was funded by the city’s Clean and Beautiful initiative at a cost of about $35,000 and took a year to procure.

With the G20 upon us, many are confused about what they can or cannot do this weekend. This handy fact sheet will help you stay informed. FLYING OUT Pearson

Come out and spend, Miller tells the press pack WELCOME MAT Toronto Mayor David Miller is welcoming the world — and its money — to Toronto. Miller invited the 2,000 or so foreign journalists covering the G8 and G20

summits to break away from their work in the media centre yesterday and spend money in the city. The mayor says he’s not concerned media will send home negative reports

about barricades and security because he says the city has so much more to offer. However, he says he wishes Ottawa had included city officials more in the planning of the event because

many people are staying away from downtown to avoid a hassle. Miller is urging the G20 to throw its weight behind negotiations for a climatechange pact this year and

to include cities in those talks. That’s because even though cities are on the front line of environmental protection, they’re not usually included in high-level talks. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Magna deal in jeopardy

Local

A controversial multimillion-dollar plan to buy voting control of Magna International away from founder Frank Stronach, left, will be dead for good if regulators quash it before a shareholder vote next week, a lawyer for the auto parts maker said Thursday. “To say, ‘Go away and try and do the process again’ is Disney World ... what that might accomplish is the deal would go away and never be brought forward again,” Sam Rickett told an Ontario Securities Commission hearing.

The common-law wife of a man facing charges in a G20-linked case appeared briefly Thursday in a special court set up to deal with cases related to the G20 summit. Kristen Peterson, 37, of Toronto, is charged with possession of an explosive device and possession of weapon for a dangerous purpose. Peterson’s bail hearing was adjourned to Saturday, when her partner Byron Sonne is also to appear at the special court for a bail hearing. Sonne, 37, faces several charges including possession of explosives, weapons dangerous, intimidating a justice system participant and mischief. Sonne was arrested Tuesday, the same day police raided a home in Forest Hill.

Cops charge partner in G20-linked investigation

A city already on edge ahead of the G20 summit was given another jolt Thursday when police pulled over a suspicious car downtown and discovered a surprising cargo that included a crossbow. The 53-year-old driver was immediately arrested, the area sealed off as officers wearing hazardous material “moon suits” checked suspicious liquid in the vehicle. “We have a crossbow, there’s a chainsaw, baseball bat, sledge hammers,” said Const. Hugh Smith. “There’s quite a various amount of items that,

used by the wrong person at the wrong time, was enough that we made the arrest.” Police were keeping a close eye on a noisy but otherwise peaceful labour demonstration outside a hotel when the man drove by at the lunch hour in his

modified silver Hyundai Elantra. The car immediately drew suspicion, and officers pulled it over. “Some of the weaponry was openly exposed,” Smith said. Police later said none of the items were illegal to

have. Also found were several jerry cans containing an unknown liquid. Police cordoned off the area with yellow tape and part of the scene with red tape as fully equipped hazardous-materials experts in green and red boots and carrying oxygen tanks checked the liquid taken from the vehicle. They later concluded the liquid was nothing out of the ordinary. Police said the man was taken to a processing centre and charges would be pending, but said it appeared the incident was not related to this weekend’s G20 summit. THE CANADIAN PRESS

First Nations protesters march Several hundred First Nations protesters waved flags and pounded drums Thursday as they marched through downtown Toronto. Shouting, “No G20 on stolen native land!” the marchers headed along Bay Street carrying placards, banners and Mohawk Nation flags as well as an upside-down Maple Leaf flag. Police with bicycles walked beside the marchers, using their bikes to keep people on the street. The protesters, whose ranks grew by the hundreds as the day wore on,

are hoping to draw attention to aboriginal issues from international media. They are calling for control of land they claim as their own, and urging the government to investigate the disappearance of some 500 aboriginal women. “We’re here basically to bring attention to the impact that G8 and G20 meetings have, and the effect their social and economic policies are going to have on indigenous people, lands and resources,” said Russell Diabo, spokesman for Defenders of the Land.

Police all a-Twitter G20 Summit The G8 and G20 summits will be patrolled by police on horses, on bikes, on rooftops and in helicopters. But there’s a different kind of patrol online. During both summits taking place this weekend, police will maintain a 24hour-a-day presence on social media, getting out information on road closures, motorcades and trying to correct misconceptions about what is or isn’t allowed. Thursday, for example, the @G8G20ISUca account on Twitter was clarifying comments on which ramps and lanes onto major highways were closed. Earlier in the week, the team of people behind the handle replied to one user’s frustrated comment. “@G8G20ISUca,” it read, “Do us all a favour and let this be the LAST G8 meeting in Canada. Ever. Please.” The reply? “The Integrated Security Unit does not choose the venue or time.” The massive police presence required for the sum-

SAFETY Health Canada has issued a recall notice for drop-side cribs from five companies amid concerns that babies could fall out or become trapped, which could lead to suffocation or strangulation. The agency says the drop-side hardware in the various crib models can break or become damaged, causing the drop-side to detach. This could create a space between the crib and mattress where infants and toddlers could roll in and become trapped. Neither Health Canada nor the companies involved in the recalls have received any reports of incidents or injuries related to the use of the cribs. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Tough choice for leaders World Cup showdowns vie with fixing global economy In South Korea, they call it the 2-0 necktie. Head coach Huh Jung-moo wore it when the republic shut out Greece in its opening World Cup match. Before the next game, President Lee Myung-Bak was wearing the red tie with black stripes during official meetings. The president, a big soccer fan, might break out the tie at G20 meetings Saturday, when South Korea plays Uruguay. Lee is just one of six leaders who has to balance the fate of the world’s

G20 Summit economy with the World Cup this weekend. Beatrice Fenelon of the Summit Management Office said organizers are very conscious of the tournament. “Rest assured. Leaders, delegates and media will be able to follow the game during the summits,” she said. So if you hear a terrified gasp from Angela Merkel at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre Sunday,

Their biggest fan • When 400,000 of his countrymen took to the streets to watch South Korea’s match against Nigeria Wednesday, President Lee Myung-Bak and the first lady stayed up for the 3:30 a.m. start. chances are England just scored against her beloved team. If Germany strikes first, tensions could escalate between the chancellor and British Prime Minister David Cameron. Before she left Germany Thursday, Merkel told re-

porters she will focus on the summit, but her thoughts will be with the team Sunday. The U.S. consulate was not able to say where the president will be watching the match against Ghana. His schedule has him en route to Toronto Saturday afternoon. Likewise, Argentina President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner and Mexican President Felipe Calderon will probably be busy when their teams square off Sunday. TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Novotel workers walk off the job Hotel workers who walked off the job Thursday at the Novotel Toronto Centre say they will “stand down” if contract talks resume. The approximately 80 workers walked off the job just as members of the G20 French delegation were to arrive. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Climate Bearing down RYAN REMIORZ/THE CANADIAN PRESS

Sherpas can’t climb hurdles Tough tasks lie ahead for summit leaders, sources say Global leaders meeting for the next three days in Toronto will have to paper over gaping differences after discouraged negotiators in last-minute talks made little progress on how to repair the world’s economy. Sources tell The Canadian Press that the final hours of talks among G20 negotiators — known as “sherpas” because they do the heavy lifting before the summit — yielded little in

the way of a substantive agreement. Plans to map out the future of the fragile global economic recovery, financial regulation, international development and climate change were up in the air, sources said. In particular, U.S. President Barack Obama’s negotiators are at loggerheads with Prime Minister

Stephen Harper and the International Monetary Fund over how quickly budget deficits need to be brought under control. Harper proposed moderate mediumterm belt-tightening in a letter last week to G20 leaders, and those suggestions will likely make it to the final communique, sources said, even though many in the G20 say the proposals

G20 Summit

are either not strong enough or too weak. “Negotiations are ongoing and they are on a positive track,” Harper’s communications director Dimitri Soudas wrote in an email. Fiscal measures will take place at different paces according to circumstances, and hard targets for the G20 are still being negotiated, Finance Minister Jim Flaherty said Thursday.

Ice sculptors work on a polar bear Thursday, which they hope will raise awareness of climate change during the G20 summit.

Ashbridges Bay Maintenance and Storage Facility for New Streetcars and Leslie Street Connecting Track Notice of Commencement of Transit Project Assessment Process Background The City of Toronto and the Toronto Transit Commission have ordered 204 new streetcars (Light Rail Vehicles) which will provide significant customer service improvements: > Low-floor accessibility for people with disabilities, seniors, families with strollers, bicycle storage > Almost double the passenger capacity of current streetcars > Multiple doors and a proof of payment system to increase the speed of boarding and exiting > Design enhancements to reduce noise and vibration

The Project A new Maintenance and Storage Facility is required to support the new streetcars which will begin to replace the current fleet in 2013. One hundred of the 204 new streetcars will be stored at the Ashbridges Bay site, located at the southeast corner of Lake Shore Boulevard East and Leslie Street. Connection tracks to the Facility will be constructed on Leslie Street from Commissioners Street to Queen Street as pictured in the map. Background details are available at: www.toronto.ca/involved/projects/lrv

Leslie Street Connection Route The Toronto Transit Commission (on June 2) and Toronto City Council (on June 9) approved Leslie Street as the connecting route for the new streetcars from Queen Street to the future Ashbridges Bay Facility. Although new vehicle and track design technology is expected to reduce noise and vibration compared to existing streetcars, TTC will be conducting specific noise and vibration investigations for potentially affected properties on Leslie Street. Mitigation measures will be implemented where required. Furthermore, TTC will be undertaking consultation regarding potential streetscape upgrades on the Leslie Street connection route.

The Transit Project Assessment (TPA) Process The environmental impact of the Ashbridges Bay LRV Maintenance and Storage Facility and tracks on Leslie Street from Queen Street to Commissioners Street will be assessed in accordance with the TPA Process as prescribed in Ontario Regulation 231/08, Transit Projects and Greater Toronto Transportation Authority Undertakings (2008). As part of the TPA Process, an Environmental Project Report is being prepared. A public Notice of Study Completion will be issued within 120 days, at which time the Environmental Project Report will be completed and posted publicly for a 30 day review period.

Alleged sex assault victims drop plans for lawsuit against hospital Plans have been dropped for a class-action lawsuit against North York General Hospital in connection with a doctor alleged to have sexually assaulted patients.

Conrad Black’s fraud convictions set aside A U.S. court ruling could lift some of the tarnish from former media baron Conrad Black’s name, but is unlikely to lead to his exoneration and release from prison. The U.S. Supreme court set aside three of Black’s convictions of mail fraud and sent them back to a lower court on the basis that a law used to convict Black of fraud — and othCOURT

ers of white-collar crimes — was too broad. It has left ultimate resolution of Black’s case to an appeals court, which means his fraud convictions still stand until dealt with there. Black is likely to gain some satisfaction from the ruling, but the fraud convictions are the least of his worries, said Chicago lawyer Andrew Stoltmann

— a fourth conviction for obstruction of justice will keep him behind bars. “I don’t think he’s Conrad Black going anywhere any time soon,” Stoltmann said. “The fact that he’s convicted on the obstruction of justice

charge is a horribly bad fact for him. I think he’s going to get some time shaved off of his sentence but the entire conviction will not be overturned.” The Black ruling was handed down alongside a ruling on former Enron CEO Jeffrey Skilling that found fault with the application of the federal “honest services” fraud law.

Alleged cop impersonator arrested CRIME A

55-year-old Brampton man has been arrested for allegedly impersonating a police officer. Provincial police say a driver was stopped Tuesday on Highway 410 after being approached by a car with a dashboard-mounted flashing blue light. The driver approached the stopped vehicle and identified himself as a police officer, then asked the driver for licence and per-

mits. That driver was then given a verbal warning about a lane change. A real provincial police officer on patrol saw both vehicles by the side of the highway and stopped to investigate. Noel Nacpil is charged with impersonating a police officer and was released pending a court appearance July 26. THE CANADIAN PRESS

B.C. pledges doctors for all

Canada on Alberta’s 2009-10 budget reveals a bottom line that was once blood-red in deficit ink but is now a much paler shade of pink. Alberta’s deficit for the last fiscal year will be $1 billion — almost one-fifth of the originally forecast $4.7 billion, Finance Minister Ted Morton said Thursday. Higher revenue from oilsands royalties and corporate income tax overcame collapsing natural gas prices to shrink what had been predicted would be a deep deficit hole, he said. It’s the first time oilsands money took the lead over natural gas revenue as the province’s biggest cash cow. JOY RIDE A ride in a golf cart went off course in southwestern Alberta. Police say the cart was stolen from the Paradise Canyon Golf Club in Lethbridge and was driven around a residential area, then got stuck in a ditch. Colin Patrick White, 26, is facing theft and impaired driving charges, while Shaun William Wasylien, 34, is charged with theft and threats of bodily harm. THE CANADIAN PRESS

News in brief ALBERTA The final report card

The B.C. government is promising everyone in the province will have access to a family doctor by 2015. Health Minister Kevin Falcon said the pledge is part of a $137-million overhaul of the primary health-care system in which special medical teams will be set up to co-ordinate patient care.

Mixed reaction for Chinese president VISIT Gov. Gen. Michaëlle Jean greeted Chinese President Hu Jintao at Rideau Hall Thursday, telling him such visits reinforce the two countries’ “enduring friendship.” But as Jean and husband Jean-Daniel Lafond met Hu in the stately mansion’s canvaswalled tent room, competing demonstrations raged outside the gates. “Your visit to our country and our upcoming visit to Hu Jintao yours show the extent of the enduring friendship that has existed between Canada and China for many years,” said Jean, who departs on a six-day China trip next Wednesday. Hundreds of Hu supporters, reportedly recruited from around the region by Chinese officials, lined Sussex Drive in front of the

GG’s sprawling estate, waving flags and banging drums and cymbals. Directly across the road, protesters connected to the Falun Gong spiritual movement raised banners decrying human rights abuses in China. Hu spoke through an interpreter about the important bilateral relationship between Canada and China, saying it had helped to create stability and prosperity in the Asia-Pacific region and beyond. Hu arrived in Canada Wednesday for a state visit aimed at putting cantankerous relations between the two countries solidly behind them. The Chinese leader was being feted with a state lunch ahead of this week’s G20 summit in Toronto. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Oxfam activists pose for a photograph as G8 leaders Thursday in Huntsville. Eight leaders will take part in the G8 summit at the Deerhurst Resort in Huntsville over the next few days.

Ready, Huntsville? The Obama muffins are outselling the Harper maple lattes and two ratty-looking flags have been replaced on the eve of the G8 summit. Ontario’s cottage country is ready to host the world. Despite the powerful guests hitting town Friday, life along the picturesque main street of Huntsville, remains largely uninterrupted, even by the scores of police officers who have flooded the area. Potted plants and Canadian flags line the street and the day before the meeting of international leaders, there are very few finishing touches left. “We’re there,” said Mayor Claude Doughty. “We’re ready.” The affable mayor said he noticed “two old flags on the train station that I

caught up in my next life, I guess.” In Toronto, security fencing and a heavy police presence for the G20 summit have caused much consternation and led residents to dub it “Fortress Toronto.” In Huntsville, the site where world leaders will meet Friday is far away from the downtown, so life goes on.

The sales tax on some goods and services will increase — including things like gas, electricity and haircuts. Here’s a list of common goods and services and how they will be affected.

The rebate will ensure that buyers of homes priced up to $400,000 will, on average, pay no more tax than under the PST system. However, applicable PST on building supplies is embedded in the price of the home. 5A New homes purchased as primary residences, valued at $400,000 or more, will be eligible for the maximum new housing rebate of $24,000. 6 HST-taxable, although some could be HST-exempt if provided by a public service body to children age 14 and under and underprivileged individuals with a disability.7 HST-taxable, although some could be exempt if maximum admission charged by a public service body is $1 or less, if the admissions are made in the course of the fundraising events where charitable receipts for income tax purposes may be issued, or admissions are to amateur performances. 8 Residential condo fees charged to residents are exempt; however, purchases by condominium corporations will be subject to HST, if applicable.

Scott Bates looks at the remains of his trailer home Thursday at a trailer park in Midland.

Tornado’s fury robs 50 families of homes Close to 50 families lost their homes in a severe storm that sent a tornado ripping through Midland on Georgian Bay. Mayor James Downer says the families have been taken in by friends and relatives, while the community continues to be in a state of emergency. “This situation is very grave, but out of it came some good,” Downer said. “It holds your community together. It brings your neighbours in. And it shows you what kind of people we work with.” Police blocked the main thoroughfare where most of the damage occurred, but locals slipped past the

A transport truck trailer was flipped on its side. The roof of a shed was wrapped around the top of a tree. Trailer park resident Ian Ferguson thought it was just another passing storm, until the rising winds made him bolt to-

ward his bathroom for cover. Before he could get there something slammed into his trailer. He stumbled outside and realized how fortunate he had been. Two doors down, a trailer was flipped on its side. “I’m thankful,” Ferguson said. “I walked out of there alive. The person next to me could have been dead.” He added: “I only have the clothes I’m wearing. “Let’s face it, yesterday I had a place to live. Today, I have to move.” More than 8,000 people were without power.

Obama named Petraeus as McChrystal’s replacement. Gen.

Explain yourself Premier calls spy chief’s comments ‘troubling’ Nova Scotia’s premier wants the head of Canada’s spy agency to explain his remarks about the influence of foreign governments, even though Dick Fadden backed away from his original comments. Outside his government’s weekly cabinet meeting Thursday, Darrell Dexter said he read Fadden’s comments in media reports and felt they had a “xenophobic feel.” He said the comments were “deeply troubling” because they questioned

the loyalty of Canadian politicians. “I just think they are extraordinarily regrettable and there needs to be a full explanation as to why they Darrell were made Dexter in the first place,” said Dexter. Fadden, director of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service, said in an interview with CBC-TV

that he was in the process of warning at least two provinces, through the Privy Council Office, that members of their cabinets are under the influence of foreign governments. But in a statement issued Wednesday, Fadden appeared to backpedal on what he was saying. He said CSIS had not informed the Privy Council of the cases mentioned in the interview and had not deemed them of “sufficient concern” to inform provincial authorities. THE CANADIAN PRESS

‘Blood everywhere’ Partiers hit by high-speed train on Spanish coast The last thing they heard was the piercing whistle of an oncoming train. Moments later, dozens of mostly Latin American immigrants who crossed the tracks instead of using an underground passageway to reach a beach party in a seaside resort were dead or injured, their body parts strewn among the rails. The express train that barrelled through the station in northeastern Spain plowed into a group of young men and women that included Ecuadoreans, Chileans, Colombians and Bolivians — leaving 13 people dead, injuring 14 and turning a night of celebration into carnage. Spain’s deadliest train ac-

“The euphoria of getting off the train immediately became screams.” Marcelo Cardona cident since 2003 took place during a nationwide ritual on the longest day of the year called Noche de San Juan, or the night of St. John. The crowd got off a commuter train in the beach resort of Castelldefels, a 20minute train ride outside of Barcelona, shortly before midnight Wednesday. Many jammed an underpass leading to the beach, but about 30 others climbed down from the platform and tried

to scurry across the tracks, witnesses said. Seconds later, a long-distance train that does not stop at the station crashed into the youths at high speed as its drivers sounded the whistle. Marcelo Cardona, who was on the train, said everyone aboard had been looking forward to dancing around a bonfire on the Mediterranean shore. “The euphoria of getting off the train immediately became screams. There were people screaming, ‘My daughter! My sister!’” said Cardona, a 34-year-old Bolivian. He said he saw “mutilated people, blood everywhere, blood on the platform.” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Scientists discover a personal touch

Obama, Medvedev praise improvement in U.S.-Russian relations CHARLES DHARAPAK/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

U.S. President Barack Obama declared Thursday that he and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev have “succeeded in resetting” the relationship between the former Cold War adversaries that had dipped to a dangerous low in recent years. Obama directly acknowledged differences in some areas, such as Moscow’s tensions with neighbouring Georgia, but said “we addressed those differences candidly.” And he announced the U.S. and Russia had agreed to expand co-operation on intelligence and the counterterror fight and worked on strengthening economic ties between the nations. Obama gave Russia perhaps the biggest gift it could have wanted from the meetings: An unqualified, hearty plug for Moscow’s ascension to the World Trade Organization. Russia has long wanted membership but U.S. support in the past has come with conditions.

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and U.S. President Barack Obama make an unscheduled visit to Ray’s Hell Burger Thursday in Arlington, Va.

“Russia belongs in the WTO,” Obama said as the two leaders stood side-byside in the East Room after several hours of meetings — including an impromptu trip to a nearby D.C.area hamburger joint for lunch. The leaders faced questions about the U.S.-led

Afghanistan war, and Obama promised the U.S. will “not miss a beat” because of the change in military command he ordered Wednesday. Obama accepted Gen. Stanley McChrystal’s resignation and replaced him with his direct boss, Gen. David Petraeus.

Medvedev seemed reluctant to wade into the topic, recalling the ultimately disastrous Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1979. “I try not to give pieces of advice that cannot be fulfilled,” Medvedev said. “This is a very hard topic, a very difficult one.” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Scientists are finding that how something feels to a person can affect how he or she acts. In one experiment, for example, 86 people took part in negotiations over a new car with a sticker price of $16,500. Some were seated on hard wooden chairs. Others had comfy padded seats. After their first offers were rejected, the participants made a second proposal for the car. Note to car dealers: • People on stiff wooden chairs took a hard line in the deal, raising their offered price by $896.50. • But the relaxed folks in soft chairs were willing to spend an extra $1,243.60. The hardness, the re-

searchers concluded, produced strictness and rigidity in the negotiation. “We’re not just a brain in a jar, our body is fundamentally tied to our understanding of the world,” said Joshua M. Ackerman of Massachusetts Institute of Technology, a co-author of the study. Ackerman said he was studying how people use their senses and it seemed like research on touch was underdeveloped. The chair experiment was one of a series of tests he and colleagues did showing the sense of touch can have a significant impact on people’s reactions, even though they may not realize it.

Hamas politicians expelled from Israel Israel’s decision to expel four Hamas politicians from Jerusalem threatened to set off a new crisis over the disputed city and could hinder U.S. efforts to restart peace talks. The expulsions of the three Palestinian lawmakers and a former cabinet minister could start as early as Friday. Israel has not said where they would be sent, but the West Bank is a possible destination. Israel revoked their

Jerusalem residency rights in 2006 and arrested them because they belong to Hamas, the Islamic militant group that controls the Gaza Strip and has carried out scores of deadly attacks against Israelis. The expulsion orders were delayed because the men have been in prison until recently. Israel has stripped thousands of Palestinians of their residency rights in east Jerusalem since capturing and annexing the area in the 1967 Mideast

War. However, human rights activists said Israel has never before stripped Palestinians of Jerusalem residency because of their political affiliation. “This is a very dangerous precedent,” Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said. “We won’t accept it. We won’t allow it. We won’t just overlook it.” He said the Israeli government was creating “the biggest obstacles yet on the path to peace.” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Users can decide whether they want a donor who likes to cook or paint, prefers fish as pets, wants to help the environment, likes to help people, and everything in between.

Finance Minister Jim Flaherty says countries calling for a global bank tax are not focusing on the most fundamental issues in financial reform. He said Thursday the countries that used taxpayer money to bail out their banks, like the U.K. and the United States, are those calling for the tax. But Canada and many other countries whose financial sectors were not bailed out by public money oppose the idea. “Is there going to be a global bank tax? No,” Flaherty told a news conference before delivering a speech to the Toronto Board of Trade. “Why isn’t there going to be a bank tax? Because

Bank tax misses point: Flaherty “Is there going to be a global bank tax? No.” Jim Flaherty the majority of countries in the G20 don’t want it.” Flaherty said Canada already taxes its banks quite heavily and there is no need for a punitive tax in this country. That would take away funds from banks’ ability to lend at a time when lending is crucial to help boost the recovery. Canada has proposed an alternative capital protection scheme that is still being discussed in the international community.

Human element behind probe Voices John Chick

T

he long-awaited release of the government’s Air India 182 report held little solace for the families of the 280 Canadians and 49 others who died over the Irish Sea June 23, 1985. Sixteen years before 9/11, it was at the time the deadliest terrorist attack in

North American history, even if then-prime minister Brian Mulroney chose to direct his condolences to the government of India. I know a little about this case because I lived it. In fact, it directly altered the course of my life. My father was a lead RCMP investigator on the simultaneous Tokyo Narita Airport bombing, which killed two baggage handlers. Had CP Air 003 not landed 14 minutes early, there would have been many more dead Canadians off the coast of Japan. While he’s never specifically told me it was the case, I’m fairly certain

“But remember, they are both staffed with humans, people who work hard and succeed at protecting lives in obscurity, often at great personal cost.” the toll the investigation took on my dad convinced him to ultimately take retirement five years earlier than he would have — meaning we had to move again. While the recent final report on Air India rightfully placed blame on CSIS and the RCMP for failing to prevent both disasters, it’s worth noting there were many fine investigators, in-

cluding my father, who helped produce the only criminal conviction in either case — proving in court in 1991 that Inderjit Singh Reyat built the bomb that blew apart Japanese bag handlers Hideo Asano and Hideharu Koda. But in a country where many dismissed Air India 182 as an “Indian” tragedy, Narita, with its much smaller body count, would

never get much media play in Canada. It’s long been suspected, but never proven, that Reyat was involved with the Air India bomb as well, perhaps something lost in the inexcusable disconnect between the then-new intelligence establishment and the national police force. CSIS had only been created less than a year earlier, virtually all its staff transplants from the old RCMP Security Service. A retired RCMP and CSIS person once told me that despite the shared roots, there were still areas of distrust between the two

agencies. Why is anybody’s guess. Clannish mentality permeates everything, from the highest levels of global power to the world of pin collecting. There’s no question the flaws of the RCMP and CSIS were, and are, deserving of criticism. But remember, they are both staffed with humans, people who work hard and succeed at protecting lives in obscurity, often at great personal cost — and only get attention when they screw up.

Americans eat too much salt: Report Most U.S. adults should eat less than five millilitres (a teaspoon) of salt each day, but a new U.S. government report says just one in 18 meet that goal. “This is not good news,” said Janelle Peralez Gunn of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, lead author of a new study released Thursday. Health officials currently say no adult should eat more than 5 ml (1 tsp) of salt each day. They go on to advise that 70 per cent of adults — including people with high blood pressure, all African-Americans and everyone older than 40 — should actually limit their salt intake to a more restrictive 3 ml (2⁄3 tsp), or 1,500 milligrams.

Sodium increases the risk of high blood pressure, which is the major cause of heart disease and stroke. Salt — or sodium chloride — is the main source of sodium for most people. Overall, only one in 10 adults meet the teaspoon standard, said the CDC study. But for those who should be even stingier, only one in 18 manage to do it. The research repeated what others have found — that the vast majority of dietary salt comes from processed and restaurant foods. And it concluded that salt was most commonly found in cold cuts

and other meats, and in baked goods and other items counted as grainbased products. “It’s not a matter of Americans taking a salt shaker and adding salt to their food,” said Linda Van Horn, a Northwestern University medical school professor who chairs the American Heart Association’s Nutrition Committee. In Canada, a federally convened panel of experts, known as the Sodium Working Group, is expected to bring down its recommendations next month for voluntary sodium-reduction targets in the food industry. The 25-

member panel, chaired by Health Canada, includes representatives from food manufacturing and the food service industry, health-focused organizations, scientists, consumer groups and government. The initial aim is to slash Canadians’ average daily sodium intake by about a third by 2016. Salt reduction has become a recent focus of public health campaigns. New York City, the heart association and nearly three dozen other groups have been trying to persuade food manufacturers and chain restaurants to reduce salt content by more than 50 per cent over the next 10 years.

Raptors president and GM Bryan Colangelo said earlier this week that with so many questions surrounding his roster, he planned to take the best player on the board rather than necessarily pick a replacement for Bosh. Still, the similarities to Bosh are obvious, including their size.

Lineup change sparks Jays in win over Cardinals

Isner won the longest tennis match on record by beating Nicolas Mahut of France 70-68 in the final set at Wimbledon. Picking up at 59-59 in the fifth set, the match continued on serve with no break points until Isner hit a backhand passing shot to finish the contest. The first-round match surpassed the 11-hour mark stretching over three days. CFL The Toronto Argonauts dealt Brian Ramsay, a six-footseven, 298-pound offensive lineman, to the Hamilton Tiger-Cats for a 2011 fourthround draft pick and conditional 2013 selection. Toronto also acquired Chad Owens, a receiver/return specialist from Montreal for a 2011 fourthround pick. CFL O.J. Santiago will have to wait to make his CFL debut. The former NFL tight end, making a comeback with the Montreal Alouettes, was placed on the one-game injured list Thursday by the CFL club as it made its final cuts to reach the 46-man roster limit. ESPY Joannie Rochette’s courageous performance at the Winter Olympics earned her an ESPY Award nomination.

a 5-0 win over the St. Louis Cardinals. Manager Cito Gaston dropped Aaron Hill from the two spot in the lineup and Adam Lind from the three hole to the fifth and sixth spots, while bumping up Alex Gonzalez and Jose Bautista to replace them. Lind responded to the change with a first-inning homer that followed a tworun blast by Wells as the

Blue Jays (39-34) salvaged one win from the threegame interleague series before 12,392 at Rogers Centre. Hill was 1-for-4. The five runs were plenty for Brandon Morrow (5-5), who held the Cardinals (4032) to five hits and one walk over eight innings while striking out eight. Adam Wainwright (10-5) allowed six hits, including three home runs, and five

runs, four earned, in four innings. Hill and Lind have batted second and third this season and last, but Gaston, who usually favours a set lineup, thought it was time for a change. “We’ll try it and see what happens,” said Gaston. “I don’t know if it’s going to help them. I just thought I’d get them out of there for a bit.” THE CANADIAN PRESS

or Canadians it’s difficult to side with Americans when it comes to fun and games. It’s an even more problematic alliance at global sporting summits. In the beloved passion of hockey, at the most critical moments, the men and women clad in uniforms bearing “Old Glory” present the greatest threat to those who don the Maple Leaf. The same is true of the Olympics. The Americans have the most money and deepest talent pool, thus they tend to win the lion’s share of

medals. That reality turns out to be the only asterisk to stain the success column of a wildly successful home Games in Vancouver. But things are different somehow at the World Cup. In a tournament where the European masters of “football” consider themselves insiders and where the South American magicians from Brazil and Argentina rightly claim the “It’s in our blood” card, the Yankees are the plucky upstarts. And for that reason, they are winning rave reviews north of the border. There’s something attractive about the swashbuckling style of soccer the Americans play. They are rarely cagey. Instead, they go for broke and somehow a little guy from Major League Soccer named Landon Donovan deliv-

ered them to the next round at the 11th hour against Algeria. It was thrilling to watch — no, it was inspiring — and even better, the victory by the United States seemed like justice. All along, the Americans had stuck to their guns in spite of those who conspired against them. There were goals against mighty England that were said to be “gifted” and other goals rightfully scored that were taken away. But the Americans didn’t complain much. They chalked it up to the breaks of the game. “You either whine and complain or you get on with things,” figured coach Bob Bradley. And so they worked harder and made their own victories instead of relying on others. In a way, the Americans are outsiders at the World Cup. They come from a continent that is not considered to be the heartland of the sport. In that respect they are very much like Canadians. But these American athletes are proving there’s hope for those who live on the frontier of football. The star-spangled boys of soccer are playing the role of underdogs and winning friends fast.

Salary the focus in pre-draft trade buzz NHL With

the hockey world descending on the Staples Center for the NHL draft, the league’s next group of young stars won’t be the only ones in the spotlight. An evolving landscape under the salary cap will be as well. The signs of a changing system have been evident not only in the unusually high number of deals consummated ahead of Friday’s first round, but also in the nature of the buzz still lingering. One thing most of the names who are said to be available have in common is that they’re carrying a significant contract — Boston Bruins forward Marc Savard (owed $30 million US over next six years) and goaltender Tim Thomas ($5 million cap hit for three years); Edmonton Oilers defenceman Sheldon Souray ($5.4 million cap hit for two years); Ottawa Senators forward Jason Spezza ($7 million cap hit for five years); and Dallas Stars forward Mike Ribeiro ($15 million, three years). The list goes on and on.

No urgency for Burke • Toronto Maple Leafs GM Brian Burke is never shy to pull the trigger on a deal but he won’t necessarily do it here. As of Thursday afternoon, he had received four concrete trade offers for defenceman Tomas Kaberle (who has one year left at $4.25 million), but doesn’t feel any urgency to get

A number of general managers have arrived in California with hopes of getting out from under the weight of cap-crippling contracts for either financial or competitive reasons. “Managers seem to be a little more proactive this year,” said Oilers GM Steve Tambellini, who holds the No. 1 selection in the draft. “If there are players out there and teams that have a hardship with regards to the cap and you can solve a problem now, you’d rather do that than have to wait until July 1 ...

something done this weekend because he’s not looking to get a draft pick back in return. The Leafs GM is on the lookout for a forward who can fill a scoring role and is willing to deal almost any player on the team. “When you finish 29th your list of untouchables should be pretty goddamn short,” said Burke. “And it is.”

“If you can solve some of your issues now, most managers would like to do that and get it done.” Nothing hammered that point home more than seeing the Chicago Blackhawks ship Dustin Byfuglien, Ben Eager and Brent Sopel to Atlanta just two weeks after they helped the team win the Stanley Cup. The work continued for GM Stan Bowman Thursday as he sent Colin Fraser to the Oilers — all in an effort to help get the team under the $59.4-million US cap next season. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Italy coach takes the blame CLAUDIO VILLA/ GRAZIA NERI/GETTY IMAGES

Marcello Lippi delivered a scathing verdict on his humiliated team Thursday after Italy was sent tumbling out of the World Cup by Slovakia, confessing he failed to motivate his aging squad that had played with fear. After the defending champion was eliminated Thursday without winning a game in one of the tournament’s easiest groups, the veteran Italy coach had to accept the truth that everyone else had seen. “I take full responsibility,” Lippi said after the 3-2 loss to Slovakia. “I thought this team could do more and that’s what I prepared it to do, but when you see a team that plays with fear in their legs and in their hearts you understand that you have failed.”

Italy’s Fabio Quagliarella holds his face Thursday after a scuffle with Slovakia ’keeper Jan Mucha.

Save for the final 10 minutes against Slovakia, Italy’s attack was confused and unable to hit the target. Lippi started all three group games with different formations but could never find the right formula. “It’s my fault,” Lippi added. “I wasn’t able to

motivate the team. When something like this happens, it’s always the leader’s fault. I thought I played an important role when the team won, so it’s only fair to have had just as big an impact in this failure.” Lippi led Italy to the

2006 title, when the Azzurri conceded only two goals over seven matches. This time they let in five goals in just three games, with 36-year-old captain Fabio Cannavaro responsible in part for the first two in the opening 1-1 draws with Paraguay and 78th-ranked

New Zealand. Nine players on the squad were 30 or older. “It’s everyone’s fault, not just Lippi’s. We’ve all got to be accountable,” defender Gianluca Zambrotta said. “When you finish last in a group with New Zealand, Paraguay and Slovakia, with all respect to those teams, it’s only right to go home.”

Mexico midfielder Gerardo Torrado says his team needs to emphasize intelligence over passion to overcome Argentina in the second round of the World Cup. Torrado called Argentina forward Lionel Messi “the best or one of the best in the world” but cautioned “he alone is not Argentina.” Torrado said, “We have to be intelligent and not go loco, work together to able to cancel this individual skill.” The teams play Sunday.

and their close cultural and historical ties, the match between Brazil and Portugal was one of the first World Cup matches to sell out. Brazil is ranked No. 1 in the world and Portugal is No. 3.

NATUR-A: A BEVERAGE MADE FOR CHAMPIONS When playing a sport we all focus on the importance of our training. But have you also considered how to feed and replenish your body's strength? Follow the example of the champion Clara Hughes, who has been drinking soymilk for several years and still, at the age of 37, competes with athletes in their twenties! To be well prepared or to recover after a workout, what could be better then Natura, one of the most popular soy beverages in Canada? Soymilk is in fact a great source of energy for the body, containing protein, essential vitamins, minerals and calcium in every glass. Free from cholesterol and preservatives, the Natur-a`s soymilk recipe has been proving it's worth since 1993! Produced locally in Sainte-Hyacinthe and certified organic, Natur-a soymilk has no artificial ingredients and is also dairy-free. Being the only vegetable that is a complete protein, the soy bean is a great source of nutrition for athletes and a perfect one for vegetarians, vegans, and lactose-intolerant folks who still want to exercise and be athletic! Available in a variety of flavors including unsweetened, original, vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry, Natur-a soymilk products all contain less sugar then milk, and that even includes the chocolate! So those with a sweet tooth can take pleasure in their glass of soy milk all the while staying healthy! Low in fat, Natur-a is a perfect drink for world class athletes, many of whom, like Clara Hughes, drink it regularly. Every glass of Natur-a soymilk contains 45% of the recommended daily portion of vitamin D as well as 30% of your recommended daily calcium intake. Since 2007, Health Canada has also recognized the benefits of soymilk, recommending that Canadians drink 2 to 4 glasses of soymilk per day. As rich as milk

“The world’s attention has been focused on this game, taking into account the quality of players both teams have,” Portugal coach Carlos Queiroz said. “It’s all about beautiful football, the quality of the game and creativity of our players.” The lustre was taken off slightly when midfielder Kaka was sent off in the 88th minute of Brazil’s 3-1 win over Ivory Coast, meaning he will be banned from a showdown against Real Madrid teammate Cristiano Ronaldo in Durban.

Brazil has won 12 of the 18 games between the two countries but they have met just once at a World Cup, in 1966 when a Portugal team led by Eusebio beat Brazil.

Being Bella and loving it

TwilightTalk The stars dish on the Twilight series’ third instalment, Eclipse.

“I guess in terms of the violence and stuff, I guess that makes it a little bit more grown-up. The sort of love triangle thing — being torn between two lovers doesn’t really happen when you’re eight.” Robert Pattinson

Stewart still surprised by success of Twilight Saga out over two movies? NED EHRBAR Metro World News

Kristen Stewart has played Bella Swan, the young woman at the centre of the hugely successful Twilight franchise, in three films now. But she isn’t tired of her vampireloving alter-ego. “It’s super indulgent,” she tells Metro. “Everybody always asks, ‘It must be so exhausting, you must be so sick of her.’ It’s like, no. It’s like writing a thesis as opposed to writing a paper.” It’s a good thing she isn’t sick of Bella yet, as Stewart has two more films to complete in the series. She spoke with Metro about splitting the last book into two parts, taking on On the Road and dealing with the madness of the MTV Movie Awards.

Q

Are you excited about the chance to stretch the last book

I’m excited. I feel like the fans are going to love it because we’re going to have the time to tell the whole story. What happens when you try to cram such a long story into an hour and a half, the first things that are skimmed off the top are the things I love the most, which is details and the little things that make the characters who they are.

A

Did you anticipate how much of a phenomenon it’s become, or could you not have predicted it?

Q

I don’t think anybody could have. I’ve never seen anybody respond to a movie or a book the way I’ve seen some of these people respond. Initially, we thought that we had a cult hit. We thought that our little Twilight fan group is going to love our movie

and make it somewhat successful, and maybe other people will catch on. Other people caught on like crazy. So initially it wasn’t going to be this global phenomenon. It was going to be like a cult hit.

Q A

You’re filming On the Road this summer.

Yeah. It’s finally getting made, which is really a miracle. I can’t believe I’m this age at this time when it finally gets made. Somebody the other

day was like, “There’s really no plot.” I was like, “What the f--- are you talking about, there’s no plot?” … I wrote a paper on that and told [director] Walter Salles about it in a meeting that I had with him a year and a half ago. I was like, “It’s not very

smart, but you should read it because you can tell that I really love it.” I mean, I was in the eighth grade.

Q A

You guys had a good run at the MTV Awards, didn’t you?

Reilly’s honest performance make Cyrus stand out Cyrus Director: Jay Duplass Stars: Jonah Hill, John C. Reilly Classification: 14A Rating: 1111

John C. Reilly in Cyrus.

DOROTHY ROBINSON Metro World News

REVIEW The premise of Cyrus is a familiar one — man comes into single mom’s life; single mom’s son is not too happy. However, in Cyrus, the son turns out to be an off-kilter, 21-year-old wannabe newage musician who has the social graces of a loboto-

mized sloth, meaning their version of this plot line might be most real — and hilariously creepy — yet. John C. Reilly plays John, a lonely, middle-aged guy who, at the urging of his exwife, goes to a party to open up his romantic borders. There, he meets Molly

(Marisa Tomei). They hit it off and, after a bit, John discovers Molly has a son named Cyrus (played with eerie ability by Jonah Hill); the two are beyond co-dependent on one another. Molly and Cyrus’s Oedipal relationship is the perfect vehicle for laughs — it’s

just creepy enough to make Cyrus hip but not so much that it crosses a line that shall not be named. But it’s John C. Reilly who makes the film. Reilly is not the best looking guy but it’s that realness that lends his performances honest credibility in Cyrus.

Brosnan gets Bonded Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a little bonding time for the former Mr. Bond. According to The Wrap, Pierce Brosnan will be starring with his son Sean in the slave-labour drama The Bonded. EMPIREONLINE.COM

Grown Ups one lazy comedy much and are all wrapped up in one painfully long weepy scene. Other than that the movie is little more than a string of gags with the five friendly comedians trying to make each other laugh. Admittedly, there are some chuckles to be had, but the best laughs most likely took place when the cameras werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rolling. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing wrong with lowbrow comedies that have no ambition beyond easy laughs, but Grown Ups is particularly lazy. Sandlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crude/sentimental shtick is getting old and it seems like he isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even trying to tell stories anymore. The good news is that all these comedians clearly had a good time making a movie last summer. The bad news is that no one else was invited to the party. â&#x20AC;˘ For a trailer of Grown Ups, screen times and photos, visit metronews.ca/movies

IAN GORMELY for Metro Canada

Protest music has probably been around since the first cavepeople picked up two rocks and started pounding out a beat. But while its usefulness at conveying opinions and ideas is as strong as ever, its social influence has significantly dwindled. Sounds Like a Revolution, the new doc from Canadian filmmakers Summer Love and Jane Michener, argues that the post 9-11 world has produced more politically active artists than ever before, but the average person would never hear their music due to corporate and political interests trumping these artists right to speak their minds. The film uses artist and expert interviews spliced with some great concert footage (Rage Against the Machineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a cappella rendition of Killing in the Name Of is especially sweet) to prove its point. But interviews with

been-around-protest-block artists like David Crosby and Pete Seeger far outweigh ones with relative nubes like Michael Franti or NOFXâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fat Mike. Their of-the-moment earnest political platitudes, although well intentioned, just canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t trump the perspective offered by their older peers. Perhaps Sounds Like a Revolutionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest flaw is its singular focus on American bands protesting American policy. It ignores the thousands of bands around the world who are actively speaking out against governments willing to give far less leeway to dissent (i.e. none). These bands flirt with imprisonment by just performing, whereas the bands featured in this doc wonder why they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get played on the radio. For all its loud sabre-rattling, Sounds Like a Revolution has very little to say.

Rathbone rising with Last Airbender Young actor joins the action in Shyamalan blockbuster PHIL BROWN for Metro Canada

Jackson Rathbone might be set to make tween girls and middle-aged woman squeal with delight next week in the new Twilight movie, but that’s not the film that he’s most excited to be a part of this summer. Instead, Rathbone is looking forward to audiences seeing his role in the upcoming M. Night Shyamalan movie The Last Airbender, which is based on a popular TV series. “My friends were always huge fans of the show and so was I.” Rathbone told Metro. “While they weren’t quite so excited when they learned that I was in Twilight, now I’ve got my guy friends thinking I’m kind of cool. So, it’s

nice to get some credibility. After all, I know kung fu now.” The film is based on the Nickelodeon animated series Avatar: The Last Airbender (part of the title was dropped for the movie for obvious reasons) about a world separated into distinct populations based on their ability to control one of the four elements. When a young child is discovered who can control all of the elements, he is cherished because he could bring peace to the divided world. Rathbone plays a member of the water tribe who helps the young boy on his journey. It’s not exactly the type of

cows are talking to pigs. This is a film with so much action that everyone’s going to love it.” Much like the TV series that inspired it, the film

will be filled with complex action sequences guaranteed to thrill audiences. It’s a big part of what drew Rathbone to the project and he was thrilled to play an action hero. “I probably did about 90 per cent of my fights and it was a blast,” said Rathbone. “I got to work with some of the premiere stuntmen and stuntwomen in the industry. I met guys who played James Bond back when it was Sean Connery and would jump out of airplanes and do the most amazing things. It was such an honour to be working with people of that calibre.”

ANNE BRODIE for Metro Canada

Legendary French designer Coco Chanel’s romance with Russian composer Igor Stravinsky was a little known episode of her life that took place in 1920. By then Chanel was an extremely successful businesswoman, couturiere, and visionary who changed the game perhaps more than any other modern designer. She raised hemlines, removed decorative details from post-Victorian clothing and freed women literally and figuratively from corsets. Stravinsky was an influential musician whose ca-

#

reer had been uneven, to put it mildly. Chanel was in the audience of the 1913 Paris premiere of Stravinsky’s piece The Rite of Spring. It was controversial, considered “too modern.” The audience rioted, Stravinsky stormed out, devastated and angry, leaving Chanel amused and attracted to this bold Russian man. They met again in 1920 after the death of her lover Boy Capel; he was married with several children he could barely support. Their attraction was immediate and he and his family accepted her invitation to live in her estate outside Paris. There they began an affair which inspired him to work and where she developed her signature scent Chanel No. 5. But life there became unmanageable as Chanel made no attempt to hide the affair from his family. The cinematography and

art direction are stunning in every detail, lovingly caressing the “things” in Chanel’s world — the clothing, architecture, design and décor of the homes, workplaces, and quotidian items from a long gone era of refinement. Each door opens into a space of intense artistic focus — it’s an extremely elegant world. Even the doors are works of art. However the film tends to suffocate in its own gorgeousness and inability to express intimacy. It’s beautiful at the expense of the protagonists and they become decorative objects, saying lines you can’t hear over the loveliness. Real life Chanel model Anna Mouglalis plays Coco, who we know was never as beautiful as she is, and Madds Mikkelsen is Stravinsky; they’re also easy on the eyes but perpetually sombre, sad, and torn, and our eye tends to seek relief in the curtains.

Few rock bands aim for ingratiation like the Toronto pop collective Broken Social Scene. Their hoarse, sing-along choruses are the musical equivalent of a hearty, back-slapping hug. It’s no surprise, then, that a movie inspired by their music would prove similarly eager to please. But Bruce McDonald’s This Movie is Broken is at least as enervating as it is enchanting. Originally conceived as a documentary about the band, the film plays at formal innovation by grafting concert footage of BSS’ epic summer 2009 show at Harbourfront onto a wispy narrative involving a pair of best-friends-turned lovers.

This Movie is Broken is concert film and romance rolled into one.

The idea is that the music will serve as counterpoint to their budding romance, but McDonald, whose greatest strength as a director is a sense of rhythm, unfortunately never locates the right backand-forth groove. The scenes in which amorous slacker Bruno (Greg Calderone) and his longtime crush Caroline (Georgina Reilly) actually arrive at the concert are impressive technically, with

cameras snaking through a real and mostly oblivious crowd. And whatever one’s feelings about Broken Social Scene’s music, their performance is undeniably intense. The energy of these sequences only throws the flimsiness of the dramatic material into sharper relief. McDonald’s desire to experiment with his storytelling is admirable, but This Movie Is Broken never quite pulls itself together.

he road trip is part of the American psyche dating back to the young men (and women) who took Horace Greeley’s famous advice —“Go west young man!”— to heart and left the east for the frontier. Hollywood saw the allure early on, recognizing that road movies offer opportunities to inject exciting secondary characters and interesting scenery into stories each time the leads stop in a new town. Add to that the sexy appeal of two people running for their lives and you have a new genre — the fugitive couple movie. Whether it is the

doomed Henry Fonda and Sylvia Sydney on the lam in 1937s You Only Live Once or Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz’s worldwide trek in this weekend’s Knight and Day, the idea of runaways on the open road has been irresistible to filmmakers. One early fugitive road movie is Persons in Hiding, a nasty 1939 film based on J. Edgar Hoover’s bestselling book of the same name. J. Carrol Naish stars as a small-time hood on the run with Dorothy Bronson (Patricia Morison). Together they rob banks and even kidnap a hapless stranger all to appease Ms. Bronson’s appetite for champagne and furs. Of course, this being based on Hoover’s book, the pair isn’t mythologized à la Bonnie and Clyde. No, the heroes here are the FBI who use their “infallible” methods to bring the couple to justice.

behaviour. Based on a 1959 pulp novel by Jim Thompson, it stars Steve McQueen as a cocky safecracker who hits the road with Ali MacGraw following a botched holdup. Panned on its original release — Roger Ebert called it “a big, glossy, impersonal mechanical toy” — it was a box office success, partly because of the ruckus the tabloids made when MacGraw left her husband, producer Robert Evans, for McQueen during production. More recently crime and scandal were at the heart of Natural Born Killers, a satire of media sensationalism and America's love affair with violence. Woody Harrelson and Juliette Lewis play married murderers — “the best thing to happen to mass murder since Manson” — on a cross country killing spree.

Toy Story 3

111½

The folks at Pixar have returned to the characters of their first movie, now 15 years past, and come up with an inspired, intelligent and entertaining film expertly straddling the line between kids and adults entertainment. The latest instalment finds Woody (Tom Hanks), Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen) and the rest of the familiar toys of the first two films fretting over their owner Andy’s impending departure to college. After becoming convinced they’re headed for the trash heap, the toys mount an escape that lands them in the apparent Shangri-La of a local day-care centre, where the toy world is overseen by a deceivingly cuddly old teddy bear (Ned Beatty). While kids will certainly enjoy the movie, don’t be surprised to find most of the adult audience needing tissues. The visuals are spectacular enough without 3-D, and the technology doesn’t add enough to warrant the higher ticket price.

Ned Ehrbar/Metro World News

To anyone alive in the 1980s, the Karate Kid legend is a familiar one. In this reboot, Jaden Smith (son of Will and Jada) stars in the role Ralph Macchio made a Reagan era icon. The story’s been freshened by a move to Beijing but the filmmakers wisely kept the underdog coming-ofage tale front and centre. Smith is the film’s centrepiece. He’s clearly still a novice, but has inherited the best bits of his mother and father’s collective gene pools (he got his mother’s ears! Yay!) and has charisma to burn. He’s ably assisted by co-star Jackie Chan, who brings warmth and personality to Mr. Han. Richard Crouse/for Metro Canada

A spin-off to the 2008 Apatow-produced hit Forgetting Sarah Marshall, this tale about a record executive hopeful named Aaron (Hill) and his lascivious, out-of-control rock ’n’ roll charge (Brand, reviving Marshall’s Aldous Snow character) anchors grossout gags by giving the bedlam a heart.

Comeback kid Sarah Harmer holds her fire on new album GRAHAM ROCKINGHAM for Metro Canada

Five years is a long time between albums in the pop music world. Many artists would have released at least two studio CDs during that time, maybe a DVD and a live album as well. We can excuse Sarah Harmer’s long break between albums, though. She’s been preoccupied. For the past five years, Harmer has been at the centre of a fight to block a proposed gravel quarry on a picturesque piece of the Niagara Escarpment near her childhood home in rural north Burlington, Ont. The Juno-winning singer-songwriter’s time has been taken up with raising funds, hiring consultants, lobbying politicians, studying scientific reports and prepping for a seemingly endless series of land-use hearings.

“It’s definitely an album based around human emotions, experiences and relationships from a personal perspective.” Sarah Harmer If anything, it’s surprising that she found any time at all to write and record her new CD, Oh Little Fire, which was released this week. “Yeah, it was a long time coming,” Harmer agrees in an interview from her home near Kingston. “But perspective is pretty important when it comes to time.” Harmer admits it wasn’t easy to pick up songs that, in some cases, she had started years earlier. “I started a few of them a long time ago,” she ex-

plains. “I’d have an idea for a song — a melody, a verse, a little bit of sentiment — to get back to it and make something complete, that took a while.” Her previous album, I’m a Mountain, was released in 2005 shortly after she had formed the environmental group PERL (Protecting Escarpment Rural Land) to fight the quarry proposal. It was an acoustic record with a country tinge and filled with the politics of the environment. It made the short list for the Polaris Music Prize for top Canadian album. An accompanying DVD won a Juno award. Politics is largely absent from the songs of Oh Little Fire. One track, Washington, is about her regret at not travelling to the U.S. capital to for President Barack Obama’s inauguration. Songs about the environment, however, are notice-

ably lacking. “No, there aren’t any overt land-use issues commented on,” she laughs. “It’s definitely an album based around human emotions, experiences and relationships from a personal perspective.” To help guide her transition back to the recording studio, Harmer reached

out to old friend and producer Gavin Brown. Brown, best known for his work with rock bands like Billy Talent, had played drums on Harmer’s 2000 breakthrough album You Were Here. Brown’s influence brought electric guitars and keyboards back into the mix. Only one track —

Silverado, sung with the help of alt-country queen Neko Case — contains the rootsy feel of I’m A Mountain. “(Brown) was a huge part of making this record,” she says. “He really kicked it in for me. ... I had all these songs in my mind for a long time. He helped me express them.”

Eminem puts the art back into album covers SoundCheck Alan Cross metronews.ca/soundcheck

T

here was a time when I had beautiful handwriting, a lovely cursive script with distinctive jaunty flourishes with the uppercase "A" and the lowercase "g" and "j." But no more. Keyboards — first an IBM Selectric and then a computer — completely destroyed my ability to write in longhand. Today, I’d have better

luck reading ancient Sumerian runic symbols than anything I might have written down in the last 10 minutes. The only way I can be remotely legible is to jot down everything in ALL CAPS. This is kind of what happened to album artwork. In the old days, LP offered a 12-by-12 pallet (double that if you include the back) that could be a source of mystic, wonder and legend: the man with the sticks on Led Zeppelin IV; Paul McCartney barefoot and out of step on Abbey Road; the swimming baby of Nevermind. Who knows how many albums were sold on the strength of a Roger Dean

painting or a surreal Hipignosis landscape? And how many careers were launched as a result of the amazing packaging created by Factory Records? Album artwork was mortally wounded by the CD and rendered almost irrelevant by the MP3. Yet there are still those who believe in its power — like Eminem. Frankly, I’m not the biggest Eminem fan, but I did buy his new record, Recovery,

partly because of the album’s alternate cover The image, created by British photographer Nigel Parry, is set in Hart Plaza in Detroit next to the Renaissance Center, the headquaters of General

Motors. The place is deserted save for Eminem in his hermetically sealed Perspex box with his couch, flat screen TV and some reading material. There are several layers and multiple interpretations within this shot. There’s Em’s stints in rehab — prompted by an accidentally overdose of methadone — where he recovered from addictions to Vicodin, Valium and Ambien. But because he’s in a box, what does that say about his state of mind and self-perception? There’s Detroit and the auto industry’s wished-for recovery and, dare we say it, renaissance after decades of decline. But

why is the plaza deserted? Before you hear a single note or rhyme, Recovery is mysterious, disturbing and thought-provoking — all thanks to the artwork. And isn’t that great to see for a change?

Those twin little girls who hang out in the halls of Stanley Kubrick’s horror classic The Shining, have a lot in common with the Stars’ new CD The Five Ghosts. On the outside, they’re all cute ribbons and curls. But on the inside, they’re lost souls, crying out in agony from the depths of the netherworld. “That’s a huge influence on my life, that movie, The Shining,” says Stars’ founder Torquil Campbell. “I think we’ve always had that in our music.” Campbell is talking about the eerie pop-synth mix that comes about when Stars’ lead singer Amy Millan’s childlike voice meets

the ghoulish nature of new songs like Dead Hearts, Winter Bones and I Died So I Could Haunt You. “That’s always something we’ve tried to do in the songs,” Campbell explains, “To take subject matter that was sort of the opposite of the music you were hearing. “So you receive the music in one way and then you receive the story within the music in another way. That creates the tension and unease between the two things. I think the best pop music is about that tension, achieving a kind of halfway point between joy and darkness.” Campbell says the dark nature of the material also came honestly to the band’s five members who wrote the 11 new tracks collectively. “Definitely ghosts, the

“The best pop music is about … achieving a kind of halfway point between joy and darkness.” Torquil Cambell loss of people, death, all those things were a part of this year for all of us. We had a tough year that way. My dad passed away and people were born (Campbell and his wife have a baby daughter). And Chris (Seligman, keyboardist) had this bizarre episode in Vancouver of being haunted and literally having to leave his apartment in the middle of the night. “So right from the get-go there was this something pointing us toward talking about this stuff. It kind of came upon us. It wasn’t something that we decided to do.”

Jason Lee seems like a man who prefers to stay busy. Having just appeared on Live with Regis and Kelly moments before, Lee talks to us from a car on his way to the airport so that he can return to shooting his new TNT cop drama Memphis Beat later in the afternoon. And Lee’s last TV hit, My Name Is Earl, was barely deceased before he reappeared in this somewhat less-quirky role as Dwight Hendricks, a southern police detective who is also an Elvis impersonator. “(Earl was) more goofing off and having a good time doing that and [Dwight] is having a good time taking a completely different approach, which

Say goodbye to As the World Turns The young, dark-headed actor who played Dr. Bob, as well as the rest of the cast, completed the show shielded from both the fact of its pre-emption and the terrible reason why. Only after the episodeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s final fade-out did they learn of the tragedy, as the actor portraying Dr. Bob, Don Hastings, recalled one day last week. Now 76 and handsomely silver-haired, Hastings was in his dressing room between scenes at the Brooklyn studio the series has

vocalist Chaka Khan electrifies the stage at Yonge-Dundas Square with a free show on the final Saturday along with Grammy Award winner Macy Gray. “I’ll be there with my band and we’ll be doin’ the hell out of it. I love what I do and it’ll be great,” said Khan over the phone from Amsterdam. “There’s a ton of choice this year. Something for everyone,” notes Josh Grossman, the festival’s artistic director. The lineup includes a mix of fresh and estab-

lished performers, from emotive songstress Martha Wainwright who performs the music of Edith Piaf at the Great Hall, to teen phenom Nikki Yanovsky at Koerner Hall, to R&B icon Mavis Staples plus the Allen Toussaint Band at the Toronto Star Stage in Nathan Philips Square.

Battle of the ’80s TVGuide.com reports a brawl between two ’80s singers is in the works: Debbie Gibson and Tiffany. The two will face off in the Syfy channel’s new movie Mega Python vs. Gatoroid. METRO NEWS SERVICES

The BET Awards are in an all-embracing mood. Tween heartthrob Justin Bieber and Disney star Selena Gomez are among the nominees, three brandnew artists will debut on the show, and for the first time in its 10-year history, the BET Awards will begin with a big musical number that may remind viewers of Glee. “This is the biggest show we’ve ever done,” said Stephen Hill, BET’s president of music programming and specials. “All I can say is you’re going to want to tune in for Queen Latifah’s opening.” The coy executive producer wouldn’t confirm the “Glee” connection, but praised host Latifah’s var-

“All I can say is you’re going to want to tune in for Queen Latifah’s opening.” BET’s Stephen Hill ied skills: “She acts, sings, raps — and might be taking tap lessons.” Sunday’s show also marks Kanye West’s first televised appearance since Taylor-Gate at last year’s MTV Video Music Awards, when the rapper swiped the microphone from stunned “Best Female Video” winner Taylor Swift and declared that Beyoncé should have won the award. He’s been keeping a low profile since the on-

slaught of bad publicity almost a year ago. “Everybody wants to see what Kanye’s doing,” Hill said. “I saw him in March and he said, ‘I’m staying out of sight and I’m going to come back strong at the BET Awards.’” Also making a comeback Sunday is T.I., in his first televised performance since the 29-year-old rapper was released from prison in December. John Legend, who will

receive BET’s humanitarian award, said he’s thrilled to participate in the show again, and especially honoured to be recognized. Legend said his charitable work through the Show Me campaign, which aims to eradicate poverty through education and health care, “has never been about awards, but about making a real difference in people's lives.” “Hopefully this award will inspire others to do the same,” Legend said. Prince will also be honoured Sunday with BET’s lifetime achievement award. “That Prince is going to allow us to celebrate him, we’re humbled,” Hill said.

The BET Awards are adding some youth to the mix with Canadian artists such as Justin Bieber and Drake, seen here at the MMVAs.

Don’t give in to pressure and do something you know to be wrong just because someone in authority demands it of you.

You have more than your share of good ideas and the planets are begging you to make your latest good idea work, not just for yourself but for others too.

Someone will look favorably on you today but because you don’t trust them you may turn down whatever it is they are offering. If you do you’ll regret it.

Today’s Sun-Pluto aspect will endow you with so much competitive spirit that you will win whatever battle it is you are involved in with considerable ease.

A great opportunity will come your way today, but will you make the most of it? You may be tempted to stay in the shadows and not call attention to yourself.

A colleague will want to do you a favor today but because you feel the need to be independent you may reject their offer. That’s a shame.

Someone has taken a shine to you and wants to help you make the most of your talents. Just remember nothing is ever truly for free.

At the moment you have extra strength. However, it would be wrong to force your opinions on other people — wrong, and maybe dangerous too.

No matter how many times you have tried and failed at something in the past if you try again now you WILL succeed, so don’t give up.

There are some powerful emotions at large. Don’t get angry just because someone challenges your worldview. It’s not about you personally you know.

No matter how confident you feel you are likely to come up against someone today whose very presence drains you of energy and self-belief.

This promises to be a day to remember, especially if you are looking for new ways to express yourself. Think big and act big.
