10,000 Shriners invade city COLIN MCCONNELL/TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

The Shriners are coming to town. The name may conjure an image of fez-wearing, tiny-car-driving, clownparading men, but the boost to tourism revenue is no joke: The 136th annual convention of the fraternal organization, which begins Sunday, means a $4-million injection into a downtown that suffered a strong blow to its economy and morale during the G20

summit. Beyond the silly stunts and gimmicks, this not-sosecret society, which boasts 350,000 members worldwide (including 12 temples and 22,000 members in Canada) has a long history of supporting pediatric health care under the slogan: “Shriners, having fun and helping kids.” For 71-year-old Barry McQuillin, director general of the Shrine Imperial Session in Toronto, the

convention will be a chance to boost the spirits of Toronto and raise the profile of the Shriners’ generous side. “The parade and the fun that we’ll have, the thousands of people on the streets, it is always a thrill,” he says. “But we are not doing it to particularly amuse ourselves, we’re doing it for the citizens of the Toronto.”

Hundreds of protesters blocked from reaching Police HQ Protests also organized in Montreal Anti-capitalist groups, unions and community and women’s organizations are rallying to support those still being filtered through the justice system following mass arrests during the G20 summit in Toronto last weekend. Several hundred people took to the streets of downtown Toronto on Thursday evening to show their displeasure with police tactics. Local media outlets reported the demonstrators called for the resignation of police chief Bill Blair. The demonstrators tried to march from the Ontario legislature to police headquarters, but officers prevented them from getting too close to their headquarters. Reports indicated the Toronto event was largely peaceful. In Montreal, about 1,000 protesters marched peace-

Many carried cans around their necks to collect money for the legal representation of those still in police custody in Toronto. Unionist Francis Lagace, one of the few marchers sporting a suit and tie, had been in Toronto for the summit. “Those people were arrested without knowing why, they were detained in horrendous conditions,” he said. “This is a clear violation of human rights in Canada.”

Disgruntled residents trying to adapt to tax JASMEET SIDHU/TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Allan Melcosky wishes he’d bought his bus ticket to Winnipeg a day earlier, before the HST kicked in.

Impact of HST hitting home for shoppers Some express buyer’s remorse, others unaware of tax hike on Canada Day Ontario levy now at 13% Canada Day shoppers were feeling the extra pinch Thursday as the harmonized sales tax officially went into effect, causing a slew of items like rail tickets, pedicures, cigarettes, dry cleaning and gasoline to rise in price. The overnight change caused a bit of buyer’s remorse in shoppers who were running errands and shopping this holiday, some of whom didn’t realize the HST would start on Canada Day. The HST is a blend of

1 out of 6

The ratio of goods and services that have increased levies because of the HST. the five per cent federal goods and services tax with the eight per cent provincial sales tax, causing items that were previously only subject to the

GST to now face a levy of 13 per cent. “I think theoretically if I realized last night, I would have (bought my ticket yesterday),” said Allan Melcosky while waiting for his bus to Winnipeg at the downtown Greyhound bus station. “But you’re not going to get away from it. What, you’re going to fill up your tank for a week? It’s here, there’s nothing now you can do about it,” he added. TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Customers at the Classic Nail and Spa on Dundas Street East knew about the coming HST, but were not deterred from treating themselves to a Canada Day manicure. “I’m not happy about it,” said Rosemary Montagnese on having to pay about $1.20 more on her manicure. “A lot of people do not understand this, they really don’t. They may know about it, but they still don’t understand the way it works. You’re going to think twice about doing stuff.” For taxi driver Adnan Bakth, the new HST was already scaring off business, with the base rate for taxi rides rising from $4.00 to $4.25. “The customer hopped in, and at the next lights, he just got off. He was frustrated at the price,” re-

counted Bakth. “People cannot afford that kind of price. We have a big chance of losing more business.” Perhaps the Torontonians bitterest about the newly installed HST Thursday were those filling up their tanks a day after the price of gas went up by about eight cents in many downtown pumps.

Recently, he took on the job of campaign manager for mayoral candidate George Smitherman and rumours abound that Davis would head to city hall should Smitherman win. TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Among the passions inflamed by the weekend’s G20 summit in Toronto, one example is capturing imaginations around the world. A video of an outraged shopper, stymied by the early closure of the downtown Eaton Centre, has gone viral. The video shows the man repeatedly demanding to know why the doors to the mall are closed. “Tell us why,” he yells. “We want to shop.” The video has been viewed hundreds of thousands of times.

Canada Day in Kandahar Canadian soldiers and civilians in Afghanistan marked Canada Day with beer, barbecue — and a rocket attack. An afternoon of red and white Maple Leafs combined with beige combat fatigues had all the earmarks of a Canada Day at home. Hundreds of Canadian flags were strung up at Canada House, the recreational centre for Canada’s soldiers serving in

Afghanistan. Even Canadian vehicles were sporting shiny new flags attached to windows and mirrors. In addition to barbecued hotdogs and hamburgers the celebrants were given a rare ration of two beer apiece. Troops and civilians donned Team Canada hockey jerseys, giant Maple Leaf hats and painted their faces to show their Canadian pride. “It’s definitely more poignant here. We’re

proud to be Canadian and represent our country here,” said Master Cpl. Cindy Brooks. “Everybody is looking at us going who are those crazy Canadians? It’s awesome today.” Meantime, Cpl. Robin Blackburn said after being in Kandahar for months, she is missing the colour green — as in grass. But getting together with fellow Canadians is special, she said.

Canadian Idol winner Theo Tams, originally from Lethbridge, Alta., was the main entertainment for the evening concert. But after taking the stage and beginning his set of songs, his performance was delayed for 10 minutes by a rocket attack — a regular occurrence at the sprawling Kandahar Airfield. There were no reports of casualties.

The royal couple arrived in a horse-drawn landau, complete with a mounted RCMP escort. The Queen was wearing a red suit with a maple leaf brooch, and a white hat with a big red flower. Prime Minister Stephen Harper was on hand to welcome them. The 84-year-old monarch has not been on Parliament Hill for Canada Day since 1997. She was serenaded by Canadian artists, including Quebec pop star Isabelle Boulay, bagpipers The Campbell Brothers, The Barenaked Ladies and the Montreal Jubilation Gospel Choir. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Canadian G8 initiative still in development Canada has promised $1.1B in new cash over five years for maternal and child health Canada’s G8 initiative to save mothers and children in poor countries is still in labour. The $5-billion announcement at last weekend’s summit left many loose ends that need to be tied up before the countries can begin to make good on their commitment to save the lives of 1.3 million children under age five, and 64,000 mothers.

But so far, there are few indications about how those goals will be accomplished — despite widespread expectations that Ottawa would have a detailed plan to present at the summit in Huntsville, Ont. For many aid experts and non-governmental organizations looking to work with Ottawa on the initiative, the G8 announcement was welcome — but also deeply underfunded and lacking in detail.

A suspect has confessed to U.S. agents that he worked for Russia’s intelligence service, federal prosecutors said Thursday. Authorities said Juan Lazaro admitted that “Juan Lazaro” was not his real name, that he was not in fact from Uruguay, and that his wife, Peruvian journalist Vicky Pelaez,

Losing a race for life PAPUA PROJECT/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Pacific’s last glacier once had decades to live, now experts give it just years Blame global warming Lonnie Thompson fears global warming is gaining on us — fast Thompson spent years preparing for his expedition to the remote, mistshrouded mountains of eastern Indonesia, hoping to chronicle the effect of global warming on the last remaining glacier in the Pacific. Now he’s worried he got there too late.

The big melt Scientists studying Indonesia’s last glacier say it will disappear in years, not decades. The ice that covered much of Papua thousands of years ago is now just two square kilometres wide.

Even as he pitched his tent on top of Puncak Jaya, the ice was melting beneath him. The 4,884-metre-high glacier was pounded by rain every afternoon during the 13-day trip of Thompson’s team — something the American scientist has never encountered in three decades of drilling ice cores. He lay awake at night listening to the water gushing beneath him. By the time the team was ready to head back home, ice around its sheltered campsite had melted a staggering 30 centimetres. “These glaciers are dying,” said Thompson, one of the world’s most accomplished glaciologists. “Before I was thinking

In December 2006, the CSA called on Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada to create a one-day menu for astronauts onboard the International Space Station. It wasn’t easy. It had to be NASA-approved, tasty and, importantly, be made from Canadian ingredients. But in 2007, now-retired Canadian astronaut Dave Williams was the first to take the Canasnacks into space.

SUBPRIME CRISIS LOOMS IN CANADA Other people’s money

DAVID DESCÔTEAUX

We’re all Americans now.

M

arc is in charge of mortgages at a large bank. He’s getting nervous. “Many cases are scaring me. One customer owes $60,000 in credit card debt, and he wants to refinance his mortgage to repay it!” Another uses his house as an ATM. “He’s refinanced his mortgage eight times. To buy a ski-doo, a truck, a boat … The day his house’s value starts falling, this guy will lose everything.” Is this scene taking place in the U.S.? No. In Montreal. Forget about Canada Day. Partly thanks to our politicians, we’ve all become Americans — version 2007, a few months before their economy collapsed. Remember what caused the financial crisis: The central bank (the Fed) slashed interest rates, holding them too low, too long. What do you do when interest rates are low? You borrow to buy a house. You take out a line of credit and buy a car. Save? When a deposit certificate earns 1.5 per cent? No thanks. With help from “creative” bankers, this fuelled the biggest housing and debt bubble the world has ever seen. Then the bubble popped, leaving millions unemployed. What are politicians doing here? Same thing. The Bank of Canada has kept interest rates at rock bottom levels for almost three years now. Remember Fannie Mae and Freddy Mac?

“We have created a legion of subprime borrowers, one broken refrigerator away from default. If interest rates rise, the U.S. economy relapses, or home prices fall … our house of cards collapses. ”

Help clear the air this summer

Those loan companies have so far cost U.S. taxpayers $250 billion. Here we have the CMHC. The Crown corporation insures about 60 per cent of banks’ mortgage loans — generally the riskiest ones. Last year, the government allowed CMHC to insure up to $600 billion in mortgages, up from $450 billion the year before. Since CMHC is backed by taxpayer money, banks can lend to people who can’t afford it without bearing the risk. You think they had any scruples about doing so? As a result, people are spending like there’s no tomorrow. The median house price in Vancouver now exceeds $700,000. In Toronto, an average bungalow will set you back $400,000. Meanwhile, Canadians are drowning in debt. A recent survey showed that one in four of us would be unable to cope with an unexpected expense of $5,000, even if allowed to use credit cards! We have created a legion of subprime borrowers, one broken refrigerator away from default. If interest rates rise, the U.S. economy relapses, or home prices fall … our house of cards collapses. Politicians should understand that building a healthy economy requires saving, not mountains of debt. In the meantime, we’ve become Americans, circa 2007. No wonder Canada fared well during the crisis: It hasn’t hit home yet. David Descôteaux is a freelance economic journalist and an Associate Researcher at the Montreal Economic Institute (iedm.org)

Caitlin Cronenberg

Cartoon

I was planning on rebelling my entire life when I thought I was going to be Skimbleshanks the Railway Cat … Until I got a sewing machine, and then thought I would be some sort of seamstress. And then I got a camera and it all started to make sense. So I tried to rebel, but it just didn’t really take.

What’s your favourite subject?

Anything that has a person in it. I like taking pictures of cake as well, because I can get emotion out of a cake — especially if I made the cake myself. We have a bond. A cake bond. How do you get emotion out of a cake?!

How do you not get emotion out a cake (laughs)! It’s just the most emotionally deep and rich subject. It’s got icing, and you can add some fruit, some ganache ... It’s a sensual subject. Let’s talk about your book. Why a collection of naked folks?

Basically, because I’d never

done it before. (When I started) I experienced this intense connection with the person I was shooting and it just became really interesting to me. Each photo was telling an individual story. Most women have panic attacks at the mere idea of trying on a bikini. How did you get so many to pose in the buff?

In a way it’s different than trying on a bikini. It’s a more comfortable experience because you know that you’re in a safe place and in good hands. I feel like they knew they could be comfortable and I wasn’t going to judge or

ridicule them in any way. Any tips for taking Cronenberg-style photos?

Always make your own blood from scratch. Don’t use store-bought blood. Corn syrup and a little instant coffee, red food colouring and a touch of blue. And, you know, stir well. Plus it’s edible. Hey, you can even put it on the cake.

Well, you don’t want to eat too much of it because it’s very sweet. And the coffee doesn’t taste too great either. For more of Caitlin’s work, or to order her book, visit www.caitlincronenberg.com JORDANA DIVON

Bending the elements Shyamalan tries something new by turning animated TV series into a film

TORONTO

Weekend, July 2-4, 2010 metronews.ca

WEEKEND PHIL BROWN

FOR METRO CANADA

At least M. Night Shyamalan finally tried something new. The Sixth Sense director — dedicated to twist endings and subtle chills — has ventured out of his comfort zone for The Last Airbender, based the popular anime-influenced Nickelodeon series Avatar. He’s going for Star Wars-style childish thrills,

but unfortunately his movie is weighed down by measured pacing and unrelenting seriousness. These qualities worked well in his early thrillers, but suck the life out of this cartoon adventure. It’s like watching Al Gore struggling through a comedy routine, but without the unintentional laughs. The film is set in a world divided into four factions based on their ability to control, or

Dinner and a

Unfortunately he’s been missing for years and the fire tribe now controls the world with a flaming fist. That is until a young water bender and her brother discover a small child frozen in the ice who just might be the long lost

avatar. It’s a complicated and intriguing mythology, but sadly the film tries to cram 20 television episodes worth of material into 100 minutes. As a result, every nonaction scene is dedicated

to exposition with no time for characterization, homour, or a satisfying story structure. Shyamalan is a talented director and has the money and resources to craft some impressive sequences, but is simply the wrong choice for this material. Shyamalan has always been an overrated writer, and he has managed toturn a fast-paced animated series into an epic onscreen bore.

Adrien Brody admits that he wasn’t the most pleasant person to be around while making Predators, the latest in the major science-fiction franchise. “I was living a very kind of austere life when I was making this film,” he explains. “I had no sugar, no alcohol. I was not having sex, I was in the jungle alone for the most part when we were in Hawaii. And that will make you ferocious. I was training six days a week and lifting very heavy weights, which increases your body’s testosterone output.” All that preparation was necessary to transform the normally slender Oscarwinner into Royce, an intimidating mercenary and survivalist dropped onto an

alien planet to be hunted for sport by the series’ namesake creatures. All the bulking up, as well as the conditions of the set, helped get Brody into the right mindset. “There’s a certain degree of emotional transformation that happens when you physically alter yourself. You find yourself very adrenalized,” he says. “You are running through a wall of fire and you are wielding an axe-like hammer, and you are interacting with seven-foot-tall monsters. And they hurt when you hit them. I still have scars.” Since winning an Oscar in 2003 for The Pianist, Brody has cut an eclectic path as an actor, going from blockbusters like King Kong to indie fare like The Brothers Bloom. “I’m always open to new challenges. That’s part of what inspires me.”

Predator history First introduced nearly 25 years ago as the fearsome foe hunting Arnold Schwarzenegger, the Predator aliens have become a fixture of pop culture, spawning novels, comic books, video games and several movies. The movies including 1990’s Predator 2, 2004’s Alien vs. Predator and 2007’s Alien vs. Predator: Requiem. But in making the new Predators, producer Robert Rodriguez wasn’t concerned with the recent turns the Predator franchise had taken. “The bar was so low at that point,” he tells Metro. Rodriguez focused instead on the 1987 original. “I didn’t even see those two, actually,” he admits of the crossover films. “I just pretend I … was making a sequel to the first one.”

Hey, Hey It’s Esther Blueburger has probably one of the worst titles ever conceived. Fortunately, the movie isn’t quite as bad. The debut feature by Cathy Randall is one of those tragicomic semiautobiographical coming of age stories popular with debut directors. It’s about a young girl, and social reject, who reinvents herself as one of the bad girls. It’s hardly a classic, but good enough to see director Cathy Randall behind the camera again. PHIL BROWN

rector Denis Delestrac has been described as the Michael Moore of France, and the comparison fits given his unapologetically polemical nature of his filmmaking. ADAM NAYMAN

THE #1COMEDY IN CANADA IS... “ THE PERFECT SUMMER MOVIE ! ”

Douglas brings the goods as a Solitary Man Legendary actor fits role like a glove Supporting cast of Sarandon, DeVito help give film sophistication

Bill Zwecker, FOX-TV

SCENE@METRONEWS.CA

Solitary Man is such a perfect vehicle for Michael Douglas that it’s almost difficult to imagine anyone else playing the slick role. After all, Douglas has cut his teeth portraying capitalist megalomaniacs (Wall Street) who often claw their way back into some form of redemption (Wonder Boys). This film provides both those characteristics plus a side order of youthful sexual obsession — another one of Douglas’ specialties (Fatal Attraction, Basic Instinct). Directed by writing partners David Levien and Brian Koppelman (Ocean’s Thirteen), Solitary Man explores the downfall of Ben Kalmen, a New York-based automotive sales kingpin whose own egoism led to the implosion of his busi-

ness, his family and his health. Looking for a second chance, he escorts a connected wealthy lover’s daughter (Imogen Poots) to his old college to meet the Dean but instead falls into the trappings of young lust, old memories and becomes romantic mentor to a nerdy student (played by Zombieland’s Jesse Eisenberg). “You can’t cheat death

no matter how many 19year olds you talk into your bed,” his ex-wife (Susan Sarandon) tells him but Kalmen is determined to seek youth — even if he’s too far gone. Solitary Man isn’t the sort of summer release that will fill the multiplexes and Koppelman’s script, while clever enough, does feature moments of drag. But as a character study carried by the well-cast Douglas and his stellar supports (including a memorable appearance by long-time Douglas pal, Danny DeVito), this comicdrama is a more sophisticated remedy from the summer barrage of box-office blockbusters.

Like Scooby Doo and Inspector Gadget before it, this weekend’s The Last Airbender first saw the light of day as an animated television show. Director M. Night Shyamalan first came across Avatar: The Last Airbender, when his daughter said she wanted to be one of the characters, Katara, for Halloween.

fter that watching the show became “a family event in my house,” says the director. “When I saw the cartoon I thought it was so well thought out in term of mythology. It had Buddhism, martial arts and CGI (and it was) character based. I knew it would

make a great feature film … I knew we could do something that wasn’t going to be just a great treat for the eyes, but also for the mind and the soul.” Shyamalan is shooting high, hoping to turn The Last Airbender (they had to drop the Avatar part of the TV show’s title) into a trilogy. “I have always wanted to develop a long mythology based franchise like The

Lord of the Rings,” he says. One television-cartoonto-big-screen adaptation that lasted more than one installment was The Flintstones. The animated modern stone-age family (with friends Barney and Betty) ruled Saturday morning television for six years, before making the leap to the big screen in 1966 in The Man Called Flintstone, a musical James Bond parody. After that the show came back to TV in various incarnations — one even featuring the Marvel Comics superhero The Thing — but a return to the big screen took almost thirty years. In The Flintstones, the 1994 live action version, John Goodman Yabba-Dabba-Dooed his way through the film as Fred. Unable to leave well enough alone a prequel, The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas, followed in 2000. Soon though, Fred and Wilma will be back where they belong, in an animated film, set to be released in 2011.

Who is the Big Brother saboteur? That’s the question that will no doubt consume contestants on the 12th edition of CBS’ voyeuristic reality TV series that confines a group of strangers — or houseguests, as they’re known on Big Brother — inside a makeshift two-story domicile for the summer, all while being constantly monitored by over 50 video cameras and 95 microphones. This season, executive producer Allison Grodner and her team have planted a mole among the houseguests to do viewers’ bidding and disrupt the players’ lives during Big Brother 12, which debuts

If they don’t last, they’re out, and their cover is blown.” Such surprises are a staple of the “expect the unexpected” franchise. This time, however, the cast will know beforehand.

Robyn set to drop trilogy of albums

Sound Check

A HALFTIME MUSIC REPORT

Swedish pop star has been touring extensively since last release five years ago Body Talk brings a blend of bubblegum pop and club music CAM LINDSAY

SCENE@METRONEWS.CA

In the music biz, five years is an awful long time to wait for a new record. But unlike most artists that tend to lose fans over such an extended period, Swedish pop star Robyn has amassed a fan base that just kept on growing after releasing her career-rejuvenating fourth album back in 2005. So, it’s good news for her fan base then that she will have three albums out by the end of 2010. But the way Robyn describes it, she made the choice as much for herself as she did for us. “I was trying to find a new way to record and tour at the same time,” she explains. “I was really excited to tour the last album as long as I did, but at the same time it’s been four and a half years since the last album and two of those years I was touring. For me

“The thought of waiting five years again to make a new album is tiring to me.” ROBYN

WEEKEND, JULY 2-4, 2010

It’s officially halftime in 2010 so let’s look at some of the music plays from the first six months of the year.

Robyn plans to release three albums by the end of 2010.

it was nice to not have to conform to the calendar of the music industry and do it in a way that makes sense to me.” Body Talk, Robyn says, is “a combination of words taken from a club my friend runs in London. I liked what it made me think about. The album is inspired by club culture, dance music, technology and communication, so I guess it means all of that in some kind of way.”

The first of the trilogy, Body Talk Pt. 1 continues her self-titled album’s perfect amalgam of bubblegum pop and club music. From the chillaxed thump of the Diplo-produced Dancehall Queen to the undulating crescendo of Dancing On My Own, Robyn’s emotionally driven steez hits you like the warm glow of slow-mo strobe lighting. Although they aren’t quite done yet, Parts 2 and

Transitions Beginning her career at 16, Robyn has seen herself go from a major label puppet to having an identity crisis to becoming one of the most meticulous independent forces in music.

3 (which is subtitled Speak Your Body) will have their own uniqueness but won’t stray far from the first Body Talk.

runge is Back: New albums from Alice in Chains, Stone Temple Pilots, Bush, Hole plus a reunited Soundgarden and the immortal Pearl Jam have people wondering if someone hasn’t set the controls of the DeLorean for June 1994. The Continuing Collapse of CD Sales: Grunge’s resurrection has done little for the calamitous death spiral in CD sales that began in 2001. Ten years ago, $1.44 billion worth of recorded music was sold in the US; last year, it was $769 million. In Canada, sales are running up to 13 per cent behind where they were last year—and that was before the upward spike that came after Michael Jackson died. Things are so dire that it’s possible to

sneak onto the Billboard Top 200 album chart by selling around 2,500 CDs. If it wasn’t for Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, Drake and those damn Glee kids, things would be a whole lot worse. The Crisis in the Concert Industry: With revenues from CDs drying up like a Death Valley creek bed in July, artists have to tour more often and charge more for tickets. Add in high service charges and the perception that scalpers always get the best seats no matter how hard you try, people are staying away. The Eagles, the Dixie Chicks, Christina Aguilera and Limp Bizkit have all had to cancel shows because of poor sales. And let’s not even talk about the serious problems Sarah McLachlan’s Lilith Fair is having. That’s not to say that all tours are doing poorly. Just try and get a ticket for any of Rogers Waters’ restaging of Pink Floyd’s The Wall. The music industry continues to transition into … something.

Stop embarrassing me mom!: London Former Party of Five star says his family is hurting his rep every time they talk to the press Jeremy London asked a court this week to issue an injunction preventing his mother and brother from giving interviews that the actor claims are hurting his reputation and career. The lawsuit claimed the interviews may hamper a police investigation in London’s alleged kidnapping in Palm Springs, Calif., earlier this month. It named the former Party of Five actor’s mother, his twin brother and his brother’s fiancée. The complaint said the trio have ignored requests to stop giving interviews about him after he was reportedly abducted June 10. London’s brother and mother conducted an interview with E! Entertainment Television saying that he was sober now and they think he might relapse because of the incident. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Thanks to claims by a former bodyguard that she has been abusive to her children, Britney Spears received a visit from Child Protection Services, according to Radar Online. “Social workers visited Britney’s house recently about the alleged abuse allegations,” a source says.

“Under California law, anytime anyone makes a report to child protective services, a welfare check is required to be made under law to further investigate.” Sources in Spears’ camp aren’t too concerned, though, and describe the former bodyguard as “an opportunist seeking his 15 minutes of fame.” METRO NEWS SERVICES

TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Participants in last year’s Pride Parade on Yonge Street. This year’s parade takes place Sunday at 2 p.m.

An expansion to Queen’s Park, an official Trans March, an iPhone app and programs geared to the over-40 crowd are among the key additions to this year’s Pride Week. Queen’s Park will feature food and market vendors, a main stage with room for 35,000 spectators and a licensed patio area that can hold

up to 10,000. The festival already covers five smaller parks between Yonge and Church Sts., but organizers needed more space for the growing crowds, and in anticipation of Toronto hosting World Pride in 2014. To make easier to keep on top of all the action, Pride has launched its own iPhone application, listing all events with detailed information and maps. The Pride app is free and available through Apple’s store. TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Star power hits the Pride stage Still buzzing from the thrill of discovering hordes of new fans during the Music Matters Canadian music expo in Hong Kong a few weeks back, Jully Black can’t wait to strut her stuff for a hometown crowd at Toronto’s 30th annual Pride festival. “The gay community relates to the power of the story in my songs, to the message of togetherness. And I guess they understand what it’s like to be part of a significant minority in this wonderful city," says the singer, who grew up in Toronto’s Jane-Finch neighbourhood. “I had lots of gay friends, going back to Grade 9, but gay pride wasn’t on our horizon back then. It was very taboo.” A resilient and infectiously optimistic artist, Black has fought hard to get her unique brand of homegrown R&B onto the charts. During the Hong Kong event, Black was invited to perform in Australia, India and Britain. “I was blown away,” she says. Those are the same words used by Ivana Santilli to describe her feelings about being invited to perform at this year’s Pride festival. “This is my first time, and I’m blown away,” says the Toronto-born-and-raised, New York-based singer/songwriter. Both singers perform at the Wellesley Stage on Saturday night. TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Happenings

Cyndi Lauper There is a wide variety of events taking place during this year’s Pride Week. Kicking off the new venue will be a free concert by Cyndi Lauper, Saturday at 9 p.m. The following day, the park

will host Yogapalooza, which organizers hope will be the city’s biggest-ever Yoga class, led by Yogi Salimah Kassin-Lakha. Free. The second-annual Trans March takes place Friday at 8 p.m., travelling down Church St. from Hayden St. After the march, there will be entertainment at Church and Wood streets. New this year, Pride has created a list of events targeted at the over-40 crowd, including a La Cage Aux Folles Cabaret on Friday at The Bishop and The Belcher Pub.

Canadian clubs active on market KEVIN C. COX/GETTY IMAGES

When the NHL’s free agent market opened for business, the Canadian general managers came charging in with their wallets out. Mike Gillis lured coveted defenceman Dan Hamhuis to Vancouver, Bryan Murray convinced veteran blue-liner Sergei Gonchar to join Ottawa, and Darryl Sutter dropped some jaws by bringing forwards Olli Jokinen and Alex Tanguay back to Calgary.

Not to be outdone, the other three Canadian GMs also made moves on a busy day that featured more restraint than normal from managers around the league. The richest contract was the $27 million US Vancouver committed to Hamhuis over six years Among the other moves made by Canadian teams: Montreal signed goaltender Alex Auld to a $1million, one-year deal;

Toronto landed gritty winger Colby Armstrong for $9 million over three years; Edmonton inked defenceman Kurtis Foster to a $3.6-million, two-year deal; and Vancouver shelled out $7.5 million to get forward Manny Malhotra for three years. Leafs GM Brian Burke didn’t expect to make any moves when the day started, but was pleased to land Armstrong.

The Maple Leafs signed Colby Armstrong on Thursday.

BLUE JAYS

INDIANS

Even when the Cleveland Indians lost their seasonworst seventh in a row last week, manager Manny Acta kept believing in his team. Acta’s faith in his players seems to be have paid off. Behind Justin Masterson’s pitching and Matt LaPorta’s slugging, the Indians beat the Toronto Blue Jays 6-1 Thursday for their seasonhigh fifth straight win. The Indians skidded on the road before closing the trip with a win in Cincinnati Sunday. Cleveland returned home Monday and sent the Blue Jays out of town with a four-game sweep. The Indians combined

Quoted

RON SCHWANE/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Jays drop fifth in a row and ninth in past 11 games Starter Shaun Marcum tagged with the loss “Terrible, awful, we played terrible.”

“After a couple weeks of deliberation, it is time to get back to the challenge of putting together a team that can defend its title in the 2010-11 season. It’ll be the last stand for me, and I hope a grand one.”

JAYS MANAGER CITO GASTON

solid starting pitching, good work from the bullpen and timely hitting against the Blue Jays. “It was an outstanding series by the kids,” Acta said. The mood down the hall in the Blue Jays’ clubhouse was decidedly different. Toronto has lost five in a row, matching its worst slump this year, and has dropped nine of 11. Asked to describe his team’s play in the series, Toronto manager Cito Gaston gave a blunt assessment. “Terrible, awful, we played terrible,” he said. Shawn Marcum (7-4) didn’t allow a hit in the first three innings, but fell apart in a six-run fourth. The inning started with walks to Shin-Soo Choo and Carlos Santana, and a pair of wild pitches moved the runners into scoring position. LaPorta’s homer cashed them in.

Late goal lets TFC avoid first home loss

CHRIS YOUNG/THE CANADIAN PRESS

Draw with Houston means Toronto is unbeaten in last seven MLS contests Gargan scores equalizer Dan Gargan headed home a corner kick from Fuad Ibrahim in the 85th minute to give Toronto FC a 1-1 tie with the Houston Dynamo in Major League Soccer Thursday night. The draw before a crowd of 21,374 at BMO Field kept Toronto FC undefeated at home this season and without a loss in its past seven MLS matches. Brian Ching’s goal in the 73rd minute, also a header after a corner from Danny Cruz, gave a Houston 1-0 lead and followed two red cards about 11 minutes earlier that left each side with 10 players.

WEEKEND, JULY 2-4, 2010

Toronto has not 10 lost since May 1 when it dropped an

away game 2-1 to Real Salt Lake and is undefeated in 10 games in all competitions.

A minute after Ching’s goal, TFC goalkeeper Stefan Frei was called upon to make a save, tipping a shot from Lovel Palmer over the bar. Toronto’s goal came just after Vancouver native Pat Onstad made a save on TFC captain Dwayne De Rosario, a former Houston player. Each team played a man short after the 62nd minute with red cards

handed Toronto’s Julian de Guzman and Houston’s Joseph Ngwenya. It came after a skirmish deep in the Toronto end after Ngwenya continued on despite being called for a foul. After the red cards, Toronto pressed for a goal but was thwarted. Toronto picked up another red card just before the end of the game when Amadou Sanyang was sent off for picking up his second yellow card of the match. TFC head coach Predrag (Preki) Radosavljevic feels his team was standing around too much against L.A. when MLS resumed play after a

World Cup break. There was more movement in this game and the best early chance came in the 21st minute, when de Guzman’s pass sent Chad Barrett deep into the Houston end. But Barrett’s move, faking a shot first, was too predictable and defender Bobby Boswell dealt with the situation ca-

pably. Another chance was missed when De Rosario zoomed a shot over the bar in the 34th minute. Late in the first half, TFC had two good chances. In the 43rd minute, Jacob Peterson’s left-footed shot from in front went just wide right after De Rosario set him up with a deft flick pass. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Meeting with Heat ‘real good,’ says Bosh Chris Bosh met with the Miami Heat in Chicago Thursday, each side gauging the chance of him joining Dwyane Wade in South Florida for the next several seasons. “It was good. It was good, real good,” Bosh said Thursday evening outside his agent’s office in downtown Chicago. Earlier, he had posted on Twitter, “Pat Riley is very passionate about winning.” The Heat has not made any public comment after any free-agent sessions, though there’s clearly high mutual interest. Bosh told The Associated Press earlier this week that Miami is one of his top choices during the free-agent period. Bosh met with the Houston Rockets after the clock struck midnight Thursday, formally opening the NBA free-agent window. He talked to the Rockets in Dallas, his hometown, then flew to Chicago for the mid-afternoon session with the Heat contingent led by team president Pat Riley. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
