Pride Rainbow Rainbow lovefest lovefest one one million million strong strong

More than one million people jammed the streets of downtown Toronto yesterday, sporting rainbow-striped outfits, corsets and glitter for the annual Pride Parade. People pressed five-deep against the barriers to watch bare-chested dancers, a blue sequinned marching band and drag queens strut to the thumping music. One person was noticeably absent from the crowd: Mayor Rob Ford. More coverage, pages 3 and 4.

Gay support student driven, Ontario reminds In a strongly worded speech, the McGuinty government has reaffirmed that it is students, not school administrators, that determine which schools are home to anti-homophobia support groups. “The choice to have an LGBTQ group will be the choice of students, not the choice of principals and school boards,” Toronto

Centre MPP Glen Murray said in a speech designed to combat “unacceptable” levels of bullying and high suicide rates among gay and lesbian youth. Murray delivered the speech before the Pride Toronto international marshals’ reception Friday on behalf of Premier Dalton McGuinty. Despite the legislation,

it took until April 2011 for Ontario’s Catholic school system to allow clubs that focus solely on homophobia, not just broad “equity” clubs that deal with all kinds of discrimination. But for Leanne Iskander, an LGBTQ activist, and Grade 11 student at St. Joseph’s Catholic Secondary School, McGuinty’s words weren’t clear enough.

Iskander, 16, has been pushing for a gay-straight alliance club, or GSA, at her Mississauga high school. The school denied her request in March, but eventually allowed for an LGBTQ club, with the stipulation that its name could not reference GSAs or rainbows. Iskander’s group settled on the name Open Arms. TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

LGBTQ activist Leanne Iskander was named honorary dyke for Saturday’s dyke march.

Mayor misses pride of place




Toronto Pride Parade draws more than one million revellers, but city Mayor Rob Ford isn’t among them More than one million people jammed the streets of downtown Toronto yesterday, sporting rainbowstriped outfits, corsets and glitter for the country’s largest gay rights parade. The crowd whistled and cheered as the Pride parade’s colourful floats — many covered in balloons and blaring Lady Gaga music — wound down Yonge Street under the blazing sun. “Canadians know how to rock,” said Andres Fagundez, who came from New York City with his partner to take part in the Pride festivities. “This kind of crowd, this kind of people celebrating ... This is something you don’t see in many other places.” People pressed five-deep against the barriers to watch bare-chested dancers, a blue sequinned marching band and drag

queens strut to the thumping music. Police officers also took part in the parade, driving down in a cruiser bearing a rainbow flag, the symbol for gay rights. Still, one person was noticeably absent from the crowd — Toronto Mayor Rob Ford. In the lead-up to Pride Week, the city’s annual gay rights festival, the mayor came under fire for saying he would skip the parade to honour a family tradition of spending Canada Day weekend at his cottage. But Ford hadn’t ruled out attending other Pride events and some wondered if he would make a surprise

appearance at yesterday’s celebrations. Ford’s office told reporters yesterday he planned to stay at the family’s cottage. Some revellers at the parade said they were disappointed by the mayor's decision. “I think it’s stupid for him not to be here,” said Esther Freeman, 21, who watched the parade with friends and danced to the music coming from the floats. She said it’s the mayor’s responsibility to attend all major events in the city. Ford is the first mayor in years to miss the parade. Former mayors David Miller, Mel Lastman and Barbara Hall all marched in the Pride Parade, which attracts more than one million people and pumps millions of dollars into the city’s economy.

Officials brace for sovereignty vote at UN Israeli and Palestinian security forces are already taking precautions to avoid an outbreak of violence after an expected UN vote for Palestinian independence in September, officials on both sides said MONDAY, JULY 4, 2011

Greek ban doesn’t deter flotilla activists

yesterday, reflecting shared concerns about the possibility of renewed fighting this fall. For now, Israeli and Palestinian officials said they do not want — or expect — armed hostilities to resume.

Vessel patrons begin ‘open-ended’ fast Demand captain’s release

Vote paves way for female PM The sister of Thailand’s fugitive former prime minister led his loyalists to a landslide election victory yesterday, a stunning rout of the military-backed government that last year crushed protests by his supporters with a bloody crackdown that left the capital in flames. The results pave the way for Thaksin Shinawatra’s youngest sister, widely considered his proxy, to become the nation’s first female prime minister — if the coup-prone Thai army accepts the results. The Southeast Asian kingdom has been wracked by upheaval since

2006, when Thaksin was toppled in a military coup amid accusations of corruption and a Yingluck rising popuShinawatra larity that some saw as a threat to the nation’s much-revered monarchy. The Pheu Thai party was led to an overwhelming victory by Thaksin’s 44year-old sister, Yingluck Shinawatra, a U.S.-educated businesswoman handpicked by her billionaire brother. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

A Palestinian boy waves a Greek flag yesterday during a rally in Gaza City in support of the Freedom Flotilla hoping to breach Israel’s sea blockade on Gaza.

Greece’s shifting alliance Greece, keen to boost international investment and ease its financial crisis, has maintained close relations with Arab countries, but in recent years

has forged closer military and economic ties with Israel. The shift came amid a deterioration in the Jewish state’s ties with Turkey, Greece’s traditional regional rival and a fierce critic of Israel’s three-week Gaza offensive launched in late 2008. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Organizers of a Gaza-bound flotilla said yesterday they have not abandoned their plans to breach Israel’s sea blockade of the territory despite a Greek government ban on their vessels leaving the country’s ports. The campaign experienced a major setback when Greece announced its restrictions Friday, and authorities arrested the captain of a boat carrying American activists that tried to leave Greece without permission. However, co-ordinators of the flotilla were trying to maintain momentum with small protests in Athens in the face of increasing calls for them to scrap their campaign. On Saturday, the Middle East Quartet of Mideast mediators — the U.S., UN, EU and Russia — urged governments to discourage Gaza-bound flotillas that could escalate tension in the region. Several protesters from the American vessel that was intercepted by Greek authorities began what they described as an “openended fast” outside the U.S. Embassy and planned to

stay there overnight. They want Washington to pressure Greece to release their American captain, John Klusmire, and allow them to depart for the Gaza Strip. The U.S. Embassy provided standard consular services to the American citizens in the flotilla “before and after” the interception of their vessel, spokesman Stuart Smith said. The Obama administration had warned American activists against participating in the flotilla, saying they might be violating U.S. law because Gaza is run by the militant Hamas group, a U.S.-designated foreign terrorist organization.

William lauds Quebecers’ vigour Royal couple hits up Charlottetown, then off to Yellowknife and Calgary before heading to California Speaking only in French, Prince William hailed Quebecers’ “vitality and vigour” yesterday as he visited a city where a key British military victory more than 250 years ago still resonates politically. “It’s an honour for me to be here with you in Quebec today,” he said in Quebec City after inspecting members of the Royal 22e Regiment, commonly known as the Van Doos. “For me, as a soldier and an airman, it is a privilege to have inspected a great regiment like the Royal 22nd. “Your reputation is as strong as it is legendary.

Protests William and Kate’s visit to Quebec City, which came one day after they toured Montreal, rankled many sovereigntists. One reason is that the couple visited the Citadelle, a fortified residence at the foot of the Plains of Abraham, where the British defeated the French in a key battle in 1759. Many in Quebec see the monarchy not only as a colonial relic, but also as a reminder of ancestors who had their land conquered by the British army; they resent that the sovereign still serves as Canada’s head of state.

vigour.” The couple then delighted the crowd by going for a walkabout and shaking hands with dozens of excited well-wishers. A few hundred Quebec sovereigntists took to Quebec City streets to protest their presence in the province yesterday. The event went off peacefully. “We do not recognize the authority, the legitimacy of the Crown, of the monarchy here in Quebec and it’s not a national symbol for us,” said Maxime Laporte of the Reseau de resistance du Québécois. “It’s rather a symbol of imperialism, of war crimes against humanity, against our people.” THE CANADIAN PRESS

StatsCan botches GDP report Failure to properly test new computer program blamed for inaccurate numbers on economic growth The agency played down the error An embarrassing error in a Statistics Canada release in April was the result of a failure to thoroughly test a new computer system, newly released documents show. The agency issued a series of erroneous GDP numbers for the provinces early on April 28, and that afternoon got a telephone call from a Royal Bank economist raising doubts about the accuracy of the figures. Robert Hogue told the agency that the Saskatchewan number was seriously at odds with the Royal Bank’s internal growth estimate for that province. Days later, senior Statistics Canada officials confirmed the error, and on

May 2 “suspended� the release on the agency website. Two weeks after being alerted to the bogus numbers, Statistics Canada finally corrected the original figures, in a web release on May 11. The revisions pegged Saskatchewan’s economic growth in 2010 at 4.4 per cent, rather than the anemic 1.4 per cent of the April 28 release. Most of the other provinces’ GDP numbers were also revised upward. Spokesman Art Ridgeway at the time blamed a new computer, saying “two steps got reversed in order.� But internal documents obtained by The Canadian

Economists brace for job figures this week North American traders will return from patriotic holidays to a week heavy with economic data that will paint a clearer picture of how the economy is faring. Reports to be released this week include data on industrial products and raw materials, followed by building permits and the new home-price index. But the most telling reports come Friday, when both the U.S. and Canada release job figures for June. The outlook is not rosy.

Economists expect gains in the U.S. to be soft on the back of a weak second quarter. The consensus call is for 90,000 net new jobs, not enough to bring the jobless rate down from the current 9.1. per cent. In Canada, economists expect the economy churned out 15,000 net new jobs in June, down from 22,000 in May. That would push the unemployment rate up a notch to 7.5 per cent from 7.4 per cent. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Press show the problem in fact arose from a failure to properly test the new datacrunching system. “Testing was done using previously published data 2002-2008/09,� says an investigation report. “However, (there was) no parallel run for 2010 provincial GDP data as such.� The documents do not explain why the crucial test was omitted, but refer in general to “challenges in regards to funding and finding IT expertise for IT conversion, especially given the complexity and scope of the project.� Material related to the internal investigation was obtained under the Access to Information Act.

Numbers game The incident tarnished the reputation of an agency that prides itself on accuracy. A spokesman for Statistics Canada did not respond to a series of questions about the erroneous release, except to say the agency believes it properly flagged the correction. Statistics Canada has been caught issuing bogus numbers before. In 2006, the agency quietly corrected an inflation number, noting it had understated inflation by half a percentage point since 2001.


McDonald’s to grease the wheels McDonald’s is fuelling its trucks in the United Arab Emirates with oil from its own vats. Dubai-based Neutral Fuels announced yesterday that it has reached a deal to convert used vegetable oil from McDonald’s restaurants in the UAE into 100 per cent biodiesel to power the fast food giant’s delivery trucks across the Gulf country. “It’s the first time we are doing it with a fuel

that burns 50 per cent cleaner than normal diesel and has a lower carbon footprint because it’s coming from a waste vegetable product,� said Karl W. Feilder, chairman of the Neutral Group. McDonald’s said the biodiesel initiative is part of larger plans in the UAE, which is flush with crude oil but is also trying to stake its claim as a leader in renewable energy. Neutral would not say how much oil will be produced by the more than 80 McDonald’s in the UAE, but said it’s enough to power the chain’s vehicles. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

If these walls could talk: ‘House’ marks 100 years NEWS WORTH SHARING Pub quiz host Terrance Balazo ponders his next crowd stumper.


It’s 9 p.m. on a Monday at Clinton’s Tavern on Bloor Street West, and the back room is packed with unusualLIA GRAINGER ly quiet patrons. They sit METRO TORONTO huddled in groups and speak in hushed whispers. On the stage usually reserved for boisterous bands and DJs stands actor Terrance Balazo, reading from the screen of his laptop. “Yeomen Warders at the Tower of London are commonly known by what other name?” Balazo asks. The crowd ponders the British tradition and then each team scribbles down an answer. After a minute, Balazo strikes again: “What is the smallest bone in the body?” It’s pub quiz night and, in Toronto, Balazo is the unofficial king. What started as a part-time gig to supplement his work as an actor and children’s-theatre director has become much more than that. Each week, he personally composes some 160 questions for the three nights he hosts around the city. The longest running is Tuesdays at The Fox and Fiddle, where he has been dealing out stumpers to crowds of up to 150 for more than five years. “It’s a real community,” Balazo says of his many regulars. “People like to go drinking and they also like to show how smart they are.” It’s a mixed crowd: Everyone from college kids to Bay Street lawyers comes to play. George Stroumboulopoulos even shows up occasionally. (He’s pretty good.) A British phenomenon that has found a home in this commonwealth country, Balazo says the popularity of pub quizzes has exploded since he started hosting — he estimates there are now 10 to 15 quiz events a week in Toronto. And his all-time favourite question? “Which famous fashion designer made the Nazi SS uniforms?” He grins while I ponder the answer. “Hugo Boss.” He shakes his head. “Crazy, right?” Balazo admits that one of the side-effects of writing thousands of questions is that he sometimes loses his sense of what’s easy and what’s hard. “You want the crowd to go ‘Ah!’ and breathe a sigh of recognition when they hear the answer,” Balazo says. So, in the interest of scratching that itch, here are the answers to those two Clinton’s questions: “Beefeaters” and “the stirrup” (it’s in the ear). Now go ahead and breathe that sigh.

Media will always have to report on the tough stuff. But we know that Canada is full of compassionate individuals, inspiring projects and stories worth celebrating. Here’s just one. Toronto’s second-oldest

settlement house has seen Hogtown go through a lot of changes, but it has always kept up. In 1911, University of Toronto students formed the Central Neighbourhood House to help newcomers to Toronto. Over the decades, the “House” has expanded to a dynamic community centre, giving back to the people who make Toronto

exceptional. Through the year, CNH is celebrating a century of service to the community. “The events and activities of the year are designed to bring people together in celebration, regardless of their origins, living conditions or bank accounts,” said Liz Forestell, executive director of CNH. “We hope to show that

while we’ve grown, we still remember our roots; we know where we came from.” CRAIG AND MARC KIELBURGER

Baboon wasn’t amused with this park A wayward baboon that apparently escaped from an amusement park and became a mini-celebrity — appearing at a golf course and being followed on Twitter — was captured Saturday after spending three days on the lam. The animal appeared to be unharmed when it was found and tranquilized at a farm in southern New Jersey. The farm isn’t far from Six Flags Great Adventure’s Monkey Jun-

gle in Jackson Township, which has about 150 baboons that are part of a drive-thru safari. Park officials confirmed the capture and said they believed the animal was theirs. But they won’t know for sure until it’s assessed and they can see if it has a microchip that’s embedded in all their baboons. Numerous online followers tracked the baboon’s travels after it initially was spotted Thursday. Many posted on a tongue-in-cheek Twitter account created by a person posing as the baboon. Officials had said the baboon didn’t pose a threat to residents but as a precaution warned them not to approach it if they encountered it. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Transformers robots have lost some of their money-making power but still have delivered the biggest opening weekend domestically so far this year. Distributor Paramount Pictures said yesterday that Transformers: Dark of the Moon took in $97.4 million domestically in its first weekend. That beat the $90.2 million debut of Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. But the domestic haul for the sci-fi sequel was down from the $127.9 million first weekend for 2009’s Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Since opening Tuesday night, the new Transformers pulled in $162 million through Sunday, a drop from $200.1 million for Revenge of the Fallen in its first five days.

You’ve been doing a lot of solo touring. How different is the mindset for doing that from the mindset you have to have for these Soundgarden shows?

Lately I’ve been doing what I call the Songbook tour, which is pretty much just me and an acoustic guitar, so it’s about as opposite as you can get. … The only way to get any further

“We’re just as adventurous as we’ve always been, so there are song arrangements and styles that are different than anything we’ve ever done, but no matter what, we would be doing that.” CHRIS CORNELL ON SOUNDGARDEN

away is if it was just me and a puppet. Then it would be a completely different genre of entertainment. And in that way, you don’t really have to strive for balance. One kind of takes care of the other. After touring around for a month and a half, doing that [acoustic tour], I was really looking forward to getting in the studio with Soundgarden and playing loud, aggressive rock music and then after doing that for a while it will feel great to just sit alone and play an acoustic guitar, so in that way I think I’m pretty fortunate to be able to have such dramatic extremes happening. On these new dates are you guys doing any of the new stuff you’ve been recording?

I’m not sure if we will do that now mainly because we haven’t toured in 12 years or whatever it’s been. It’s hard to actually come up with a set list that’s inclusive of all the stuff that we would play even if we weren’t working on new material. We felt like we haven’t played in so long, haven’t toured and haven’t played in front of these different people in so long.

How are we going to really make everyone happy? We don’t want people to show up and be like “It was great, but they didn’t play this or that.” So to throw in new material, we don’t know if it’s something we want to do right now. From the new songs, is there anything you’re really psyched about that’s almost ready to go, that you would love to play?

The whole album is close enough that I kind of get a sense of the overall feeling of it and I’m pretty happy with that. It’s pretty great. It’s very different. But then again, they all were, so it’s not like we completely changed. Musically, at some point, I think we were always kind of doing that. And there’s always familiar elements going on but it’s also new. Is there any feeling of proceeding with caution as far as hoping you don’t get involved in any of the pitfalls that caused the tension that led to the breakup?

Well, I think the main one is avoiding concerns about scheduling. I suppose there was always a factor of record companies worrying

Chris Cornell , fresh off a solo tour, says he is looking forward to the release that playing aggressive music with his old band will give him.

about competition, other record labels and what they’re releasing by what bands that would be in direct competition with our band. And that’s concerned with a lot of different things — with touring, with radio airplay, with TV airplay and all the things

that go along with it. And we’re not really in that position anymore. We’re just Soundgarden and we’re just in that stage of being a band that there isn’t really competition. There isn’t really another band that can rush in and take our place if we’re not ready.

Patience makes the Soundgarden grow SCENE@METRONEWS.CA

Gillian Welch

As Gillian Welch has promoted her long-awaited new album, The Harrow & The Harvest, there comes a point early in each interview when a reporter asks her why it took her eight years to deliver it. Every. Single. Time. There’s no good answer, of course. These things occasionally take a while. “No one wanted this record out faster than we did,” Welch said with a small laugh. “That’s just a

fact. There’s no way. I don’t actually believe that anyone was more miserable than myself about the eight-year wait because it isn’t like we took a vacation. We actually were working the entire time. But the creative breakthrough really came when we kind of somehow managed to step outside the stress and the panic about it, you know? That’s just no way to work.” By “we,” she means her

life (and music) partner, David Rawlings. They’ve been working as a duo under a soloist’s name for more than 15 years now. The couple has inspired a generation of musicians who look to acoustic instruments with a kind of rock ‘n’ roll fervour that didn’t exist when Welch and Rawlings first met at the Berklee College of Music in Boston as students in the early ’90s. The pair wrote hun-

dreds of songs for the new album, recorded them in rough form and eventually discarded them in “a song cemetery.” Welch also found the simple act of travelling helped as well. The couple makes a conscious effort to take things slow in life, skipping planes for four wheels on the open highway and remaining disconnected as much as possible from the hustle of modern life.

LaBeouf calls wrap on Transformers role after third installment Actor says he has nothing new to bring to the popular action franchise Shia LaBeouf’s days of battling the Decepticons look to be over, with the Transformers star saying he has nothing more to offer after three films playing kid-next-door Sam Witwicky. The 26-year-old American actor said he was through with the actionpacked franchise. “I’m done,” he told The Associated Press at the recent opening of Transformers: Dark of the Moon at the Moscow International Film Festival. “I’m sure they will make more of them. It’s still a very hot franchise.” He added “I love mak-

ing them (the movies). I love the crew. I love Michael (Bay). I love the cast. I love Sam ... but I don’t have anything new to contribute and I don’t think there’s anywhere to take Sam really.” LeBeouf’s nerdy character helped one alien race of robots, the Transformers, overpower another race, the evil Decepticons, with Earth as the battleground. Directed by Michael Bay, Transformers 3 also stars Patrick Dempsey, Frances McDormand, John Malkovich and Victoria’s Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whitely.

Paramount Pictures said the movie earned $37.3 million Wednesday in the U.S. on its first day — a 40 per cent drop from its predecessor, Revenge of the Fallen. LaBeouf explained Witwicky’s role in the latest movie. “Nobody really cares about Sam anymore,” he said. “He has no purpose. He saved the world twice and has sort of been thrown to the side. This is a dude who used to validate himself on his involvement with these robots, (but) these robots no longer need him,” he

said in the AP interview. “This is like the most broken Sam’s ever been in the three movies ... and he sort of builds himself up through the course of the film.” In addition to the Transformers series, the talented actor also starred in the 2010 film Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, as well as Eagle Eye in 2008 and Disturbia in 2007. The Transformers trilogy is based on the cartoons of 1980s that were themselves inspired by the Marvel Comics comic book of the same name. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS.

Wood creates ‘total madness’ Actor’s new show based on hit comedy in Australia 2.6 million viewers watched premiere on June 23 Wilfred airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. on FX VICTORIA WILL/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


© 2011 Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc. All rights reserved.

Elijah Wood’s latest acting gig is ridiculous, and he’s OK with that. The actor stars in the new FX show Wilfred, playing a depressed guy named Ryan who is on the verge of suicide. He finds a new zest for life while hanging out with his neighbour’s dog Wilfred, except this dog is quite different. As Ryan sees it, Wilfred is a talking man in a dog suit who also smokes cigarettes. “There were days where there would just be absurd situations that my character and Wilfred would get into and you’d step out of that and think ‘what are we doing? What total madness are we creating?’” Wood said.

“And there was a gleefulness associated with it like wow, this is really bizarre and wonderful and it was a joy. So much fun.” Wood says over the course of the season the character of a stuffed bear that Wilfred is drawn to will be developed. “There’s an interesting parallel because Ryan is the only one to see Wilfred as a man in a dog suit and Wilfred refers to this bear as having its own personality as well, but we never see bear move or talk. It’s very weird.” In October, Wood heads to New Zealand to resume the role of Frodo Baggins from The Lord of the Rings trilogy in The Hobbit.

Kate gives Canadian designer regal replay Duchess of Cambridge gives homegrown talent second nod on tour She first wore ensemble by designer on day one of royal Canadian visit CHRIS JACKSON/GETTY IMAGES

It was a regal repeat for Kate as she opted to wear a dress from Canadian designer Erdem for the second time during the royal tour. The Duchess of Cambridge appeared at a prayer service in Quebec City on Sunday wearing a navy lace Jacquenta dress from Erdem Moralioglu, who is a native of the province. A model is seen wearing the dress in a photo on the Erdem website categorized under the prefall 2011 collection. The Montreal-born, London-based Moralioglu behind the Erdem label created another lacy frock worn by Kate on the first day of her first official visit abroad. Kate stepped off of a Canadian Forces jet Thursday in Ottawa donning a elbow-length, darkcoloured Erdem dress. She wore the dress to attend a wreath-laying ceremony with Prince William at the National War Memorial in the heart of the city’s downtown core.



Swimming in bling made for a princess At her royal wedding, Britain’s Kate Middleton donned an heirloom tiara charged with historical significance. Princess Charlene of Monaco opted for something much more personal, choosing a bold, asymmetrical creation in diamond and white gold that symbolizes the onetime Olympic swimmer’s love for the sea. Made by French-German jeweler Lorenz Baumer, the “Diamond Foam” tiara in white gold and nearly 60 karats worth of diamonds evokes the spray thrown off a crashing wave. Thin strips of precision-cut diamonds arch up from behind the

left ear and fan out in an almost punk-ish explosion at the temple. Large round cut diamonds, the largest weighing 8 karats, punctuate the ends of the sparkling arcs. “Princess Charlene is a swimmer and Monaco is this little contort on the Mediterranean, so the reference to the sea was something very personal for her and at the same time a symbol of the Monegasque people,” Baumer told The Associated Press. The princess wore the headpiece to the lavish multi-course gala dinner that capped the two-daylong festivities around Charlene’s long-awaited marriage to Monaco’s ruling prince, Albertzqz II, the palace said Sunday. Baumer submitted three sketches. The designer declined to give the price of the tiara, but hinted at a consequent sum. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS JOEL RYAN/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WWF-Canada expanding a Living Planet @ Work program Opening eligibility to any size workplace BEN KNIGHT


So you know your workplace could easily reduce its environmental footprint and you’re eager to help make a difference. The problem? Knowing exactly what to do — and where to start. A year ago, WWF-Canada launched its Living Planet @ Work program, helping some of Canada’s largest companies take firm, decisive action to become gentler on the planet. Each corporation paid in, and the program was based in Ontario. A year later, the program is being hugely ex-

panded. Starting very soon, any size company anywhere in Canada can take part. And the best news of all? It’s free. “It’s all customized tools and activities and support programs for our corporate partners to educate and inspire their employees for sustainability initiatives,” says Hadley Archer, WWF-Canada’s VP of strategic partnerships and fundraising. “Often, these companies already know all this stuff. What they struggle with is how to meaningfully engage their employees.” Alicia Nixon is the environmental lead for Accenture Canada, one of this nation’s top management

The WWF-Canada website will soon have tools online for any size office to implement environmental changes in their workplace.

consulting, technology services and outsourcing firms. She says the program has benefited the company in multiple ways. “We’ve incorporated all 11 of our offices across

Canada into this program,” she says. “It’s becoming more and more important to incoming employees to be part of a company that is a responsible corporate citizen.

These types of initiatives are very well received by the employees.” “There’s a series of things that are common for most companies that we help them develop,”

Archer adds. “This is to get people in an office environment educated and inspired — everything from paper use to lighting to how companies can meet in a more environmentally responsible way. And also how to tap into some of our campaigns — like Earth Hour and the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup.” And coming this fall, the doors will be open to any Canadian company that wants to take part. “In partnership with Hewlett-Packard, we are launching a new second tier that will be free, aimed really at small and medium-sized businesses, to provide them a whole suite of online tools to support their initiatives,” Archer explains. “We’re hoping to get upwards of 500 companies to join.”

Take a look at him now, skeptics! Once pegged as a poor business planner, Mike Riehm did a workplace 180 and showed his critics who’s boss


For 11 months the CBC TV crew followed Mike Riehm as he worked to build his business called EnviroBOND. With his family and friends gathered to watch the debut, a hush filled the room as the host faced the camera and said, “Have you ever wanted to start your own business? Here is an example of what NOT to do. Meet Mike Riehm.” Portrayed as a hard worker with a good prod-

Sitting on the fence is still a choice. You don’t know what you don’t know. Be aware of your own ignorance.

When tradition is taken too far From playful initiation to violent hazing

Where do we draw the line for our new high school students? ISTOCK

For some, an initiation to high school is viewed as a rite of passage, usually involving some kind of embarrassing activity. Picture teenage boys in bunny costumes. But for others, it’s become a cruel, sometimes violent, hazing. Lucas Jansen, who starts high school in the fall, isn’t too worried. “I heard about the rainbow unicorn sticker thing,” he said with a laugh. “I think that if it’s just stuff like that then it would be fine. It’s doing little practical jokes, (those) things would be OK. If that’s how freshie-ing was, then I think we wouldn’t have to deal with all of this trouble, but I think people are just taking it way too far sometimes.” Earlier this month, two high school students in

“I think people are just taking it way too far sometimes.” LUCAS JANSEN, SOON-TO-BE NINTH GRADER

The first day of high school should be an exciting one, not a day to be afraid of.

Lethbridge, Alta., pleaded guilty to hitting younger students with a goalie stick and skateboard as part of an initiation ritual last summer. Court heard both accused had been subjected to similar initiations when they started high school, but that didn’t go over well with the judge who said

they ought to know it’s wrong. The two boys were handed conditional discharges. In Regina, two Grade 8 boys suffered what one lawyer described as a “horrific” beating by four high school boys. The younger boys were heading back to their ele-

mentary school after lunch one day in June 2010, when they passed a high school and were beckoned by the older boys. The younger boys were taken behind a hockey arena where they were paddled with a skateboard and fence posts. Lawyer James Rybchuk said paddling as a form of initiation has been around since the 1950s. The practice seemed to fade for a while, he said, before making a violent resurgence. “Where do you draw the line on typical frosh activities? It can’t be anything that results in psychologi-

Bautista’s bat saves the day

proving every year.” New York Yankees outfielder Curtis Granderson was second with 6,683,877 votes. Cincinnati Reds first baseman Joey Votto of Etobicoke made the National League team as a reserve.

General manager Brian Burke took two pieces that didn’t fit the puzzle that is the 2011-12 Maple Leafs and turned them into a top-six forward and a top-four defenceman yesterday. That’s what cap space in an off-year for free agents will do for you. The Leafs are considerably stronger by adding speedy centre Matthew Lombardi and defenceman Cody Franson from Nashville than they were with little-used defenceman Brett Lebda and low-level prospect Robert Slaney, who went the other way in yesterday’s trade. The Predators also get a fourth-round pick from Toronto on the condition that Lombardi plays 60 games. The Leafs take on a considerable amount of salary and risk with Lombardi. He missed 80 games with a concussion last season and said yesterday he wasn’t able to promise to be ready for the beginning of this season. “My health is getting better,” said Lombardi. “I’m staying positive, it’s getting better every week. It’s been along process. Longer than I hoped for. The goal is to be ready for training camp. That’s what I’m hoping for. There’s nothing certain with this kind of injury. We’re going to take the time we need and go from there. “I just want to get healthy. I’m excited. I wish I was healthy today. I wish I could say I was perfectly ready to play. I’m not there yet.” The 29-year-old Lombardi — a Montreal native — has two years left on his contract at $3.5 million US per year. But he has considerable upside if healthy with tremendous speed and the ability to score 20 goals. He recorded a career-high 53 points in 2009-10 in Phoenix. He signed as a free agent with Nashville last summer, but lasted only two games.



All-star slugger homers to lift Jays over Phillies and avoid sweep Huge crowds filled the Rogers Centre as Halladay returned to town DARREN CALABRESE/THE CANADIAN PRESS


Jose Bautista slides safely into third base yesterday.

“I’m the captain of this ship and something like that cannot happen. That falls on me. I should have trusted my instincts with what I felt it was, but I didn’t and that’s my fault.” SEATTLE MANAGER ERIC WEDGE APOLOGIZED TO HIS TEAM YESTERDAY FOR NOT ARGUING SATURDAY NIGHT WHEN THE SAN DIEGO PADRES’ CAMERON MAYBIN WAS AWARDED A WALK ON ONLY THE THIRD BALL OF HIS

On day when Jose Bautista was named an all-star with a record number of votes, the Blue Jays slugger proved his fans right. Bautista blasted his major league leading 27th home run to lift Toronto over Philadelphia in a 7-4 win yesterday afternoon and avoid a sweep by the Phillies, who won the first two games 7-6 and 5-3. The victory for Toronto (41-44) also cooled off Phillies lefty Cliff Lee, who came into the game with a smoking-hot ERA and win streak, having surrendered a measly one earned run



over his last five outings. But Lee’s day unravelled in the eighth when Eric Thames tied the game with a no-doubt solo shot over the centre-field wall on the first pitch he saw. That set up Bautista’s heroics when he blasted Lee’s 2-1 fastball to his usual sweet spot over the left

field wall, sending the 26,204 at Rogers Centre into a frenzy. “For Eric to come out and start an inning like that was huge,” said Bautista. “I was able to follow it up and it was a good feeling in the dugout.” After Bautista cleared the bases, Adam Lind singled before Edwin Encarnacion went deep on a fastball and all of a sudden the Blue Jays had a three-run cushion. The game capped a Canada Day weekend where the atmosphere at Rogers Centre was electric

despite two straight defeats. Former Jays ace Roy Halladay made his longawaited return to Toronto and the 89,590 fans over Friday and Saturday was the largest two-day crowd at Rogers Centre since July 22-23, 2006 (92,351). “You get to this point in July, all-star weekend is coming, and guys are starting to get a little fatigued,” said Jays manager John Farrell. “The energy gave us a boost, gave us a lift. Hopefully, that’s a glimpse or a vision of what lies ahead for us.” THE CANADIAN PRESS


‘Something I’ll never forget’ Jose Bautista is the people’s choice heading into the allstar game. The Toronto Blue Jays slugger received a record 7,454,753 fan votes ahead of the annual game July 12 at Chase Field in Phoenix. Bautista is the first Blue

MONDAY, JULY 4, 2011


Lack of big games may have left Canada unprepared While 10 members of France’s women’s soccer team were hoisting a Champions League trophy back in May, Canada’s women’s team was training in virtual seclusion in Rome. The Canadians arrived at the FIFA Women’s World Cup riding high hopes, having spent four months in Italy training, bonding and soaking up the Azurri soccer culture. But when the World Cup whistle blew, it became abundantly clear the one thing missing was games, say the players. “It’s something we have to go back and look at obviously,” said veteran goalkeeper Karina LeBlanc. “We thought coming out of preparation that we did the right thing, so we have to go back and look at it. Games are great and also time together is great so you have to find the balance. “I’m sure our coaching staff will figure out what’s best for us for the Olympics and Olympic qualifying, hopefully, down the road.” The sixth-ranked Canadians were expected to at least make it out of the group stage but were crushed 4-0 by seventhranked France after losing 2-1 to Germany. The French, whose roster includes 10 members who play together year-round with Champions League winner Olympique Lyon, maintained their poise. The Canadians just looked panicked. There is no underestimating the value of regular games, the players said. There’s no way to reproduce crowds of thousands, and no way to practise keeping your cool when everything is on the line. “We as players, we want to be together more but we want to be together in an environment where we can play more games, where we are comfortable with being a goal up, being a goal down, just dealing with those things that are part of soccer,” LeBlanc said. “That’s one of the things we recognized we need to get more of.” THE CANADIAN PRESS


Eskimos surprise Riders in opener


two most dominant players in the world the last five years. They have won most of the majors,” Djokovic said. “So sometimes it did feel a little bit frustrating when you kind of get to the later stages of a Grand Slam — meaning last four, last eight — and then you have to meet them. They always come up with their best tennis when it matters the most. ... I always believed that I have (enough) quality to beat those two guys.” Djokovic was 0-5 against Nadal at Grand Slam tournaments entering yesterday — including retirements from a 2006 French Open quarter-final and 2007 Wimbledon semifinal. A more significant headto-head record, though, is one both men acknowledged played a role yesterday: Remarkably, Djokovic is 5-0 against Nadal this year, all in tournament finals.

Jason Barnes hauled in a two of Ricky Ray’s three touchdown passes last night as the Edmonton Eskimos opened their 2011 CFL season with a 42-28 win over the Saskatchewan Roughriders. Barnes finished the game with five catches for 104 yards, while fellow Edmonton receiver Adarius Bowman caught seven passes for 103 yards and a TD. Ray went 21-of-27 for 294 yards. Ray found Barnes for 35-yard score on the Eskimos’ second possession of the game. After allowing a 14yard touchdown pass from Darian Durant to Efrem Hill, Ray found Barnes again from 14 yards to give Edmonton a 14-7 lead. Edmonton’s defence stepped up by stopping the Riders on their next possession and recovering a Durant fumble, setting up a pair of Damon Duval field goals. Saskatchewan responded with a 43-yard Eddie Johnson field goal. Edmonton scored for a fifth straight possession when Daniel Porter found the end zone on a fiveyard run, giving the Eskimos a 27-10 lead. Johnson added a 22yard field goal before Saskatchewan running back Wes Cates found the end zone from 24 yards out to cut the deficit to 27-20 at halftime. Neither team could get the offence rolling in the third quarter until Weldon Brown intercepted a Durant pass that was tipped by Terrence Nunn. Ray found Bowman five plays later for a four-yard touchdown pass.



Novak Djokovic celebrates championship point at Wimbledon yesterday after defeating Rafael Nadal.

Djokovic seals spot atop new tennis order nd for full contest details vi World’s new no. 1 wins first Wimbledon in four sets (6-4, 6-1, 1-6, 6-3) Serb 5-0 against Nadal in 2011 Gets first Grand Slam win over Spaniard Until yesterday, Novak Djokovic never managed to win a grass-court tournament of any sort, let alone Wimbledon. Until this marvellous -— and nearly perfect — year, Djokovic was very good. Now he’s great. After outrunning, outswinging and, for stretches, dominating defending champion Rafael Nadal for his third major championship overall, Djokovic crouched on Centre Court, reached down, plucked some blades of grass and shoved them in his mouth. “I felt like an animal. I wanted to see how it tastes. It tastes good,” Djokovic said later, his eyes wide and his smile contagious. “It came spontaneously, really. I didn’t plan to do it. I didn’t know what to do for my excitement and joy.” Putting together one of the best seasons by any athlete in any sport in recent memory, Djokovic claimed major trophies from the Australian Open and Wimbledon. Today, he will rise to No. 1 from No. 2 in the ATP rankings, overtaking Nadal, a switch guaranteed by virtue of Djokovic’s win in the semifinals Friday.
