Homicide detectives are investigating after a 27-year-old man died following a fight at a westside apartment Saturday night. The third floor was taped off and markers could be seen on the building’s entry door yesterday as homicide and forensics investigators gathered evidence. Police said they were called just after 10 p.m. to the Baywood Apartments building. The man, who was allegedly stabbed, died later in the Royal Alexandra hospital. April Ledger called police after hearing a thud that sounded like someone falling down the stairs. Ledger said her building’s residents are generally respectful

Cops charge man after high-speed chase A 21-year-old Lethbridge man is facing numerous charges after allegedly leading police on a high-speed chase in a stolen car. RCMP were notified of the stolen vehicle travelling out of Lethbridge at a high rate of speed and Fort Macleod and Claresholm RCMP deployed a spike belt, which the suspect avoided, police said. Police said the vehicle was clocked at 160 km/h in a 70 zone, and RCMP chased the car north of Nanton where another spike belt was laid and the highway closed. When the driver attempted to avoid the belt, he hit the ditch and rolled. The car then burst into flames, police said. The driver sustained minor injuries and was taken into custody. METRO

Some Alberta voters could have more of an impact on the race for premier with their second-choice candidate, analysts say. If Gary Mar, Alison Redford or Doug Horner are not able to top the 50 per cent mark on the second ballot Oct. 1, the thirdplace finisher’s votes are given to whomever supporters indicated as their second choice. Mar earned nearly 41 per cent of votes cast in the first ballot Saturday, but he is not unbeatable,

said Calgary political scientist Keith Brownsey, who believes the second-choice provision favours Redford, the former justice minister “There’s no telling in this process,” he said. “It happened in 2006 and it’s how the province got Ed Stelmach.” Stelmach, the outgoing premier, was the overwhelming second choice on ballots that favoured Ted Morton in the last Tory race, and used that support to push past fellow candidate Jim Dinning. Redford said name recognition may have served some of her rivals better early on, but be-

Voters Gary Mar expressed concern yesterday over low voter turnout (59,361) Saturday night in the first Tory ballot. “As leader, I would be fully committed to reengaging Albertans about the things that are impor-

tant to them,” he said. When asked about the second-choice ballot provision yesterday, former deputy premier Doug Horner said his campaign is targeting first-choice supporters and is focused on getting them to the polls Oct. 1.

lieves many voters are quickly warming to her campaign. “In some of those cases where you might see that second-choice phenomena, it’s partly because they may have had familiarity with another candidate and are still pondering all

that through,” she said. But Edmonton political scientist Chaldeans Mensah believes Mar would do very well as the second choice on ballots. “His support is crosscutting the divides in the party — north, south, rural and urban,” he said.

Hundreds showed their support for those affected by HIV in Edmonton’s annual AIDS Walk for Life, yesterday. A pancake breakfast fuelled up a turnout of about 500 individuals and teams for the five-kilometre jaunt from Churchill Square. Though final numbers were still being tallied, early estimates pointed to stepped-up funds this year. “We’re about $15,000 ahead of target,” said Joyce LaBriola, Edmonton’s AIDS Walk consultant. “Usually, we’re at about $68,000, but we were at $82,000 this morning.”

Yesterday marked the fourth year Judy Dube, chair of Grandmothers of Alberta for a New Generation (GANG), has taken part. While focusing on the

Omnibus tops Commons agenda Parliamentarians are back to work today It’s the first chance the Conservatives have to move on their law-and-order election promises JESSICA SMITH

@METRONEWS.CA METRO CANADA IN OTTAWA

The Conservatives are set to introduce a massive omnibus bill on terrorism, youth crime, wiretapping and other planks of their tough-on-crime platform. Terrorism tops the list. The Tories campaigned on allowing victims to sue terrorists and supporters. Two controversial temporary anti-terrorism measures implemented after 9-11 will be reintroduced, Prime Minister Stephen Harper said in a recent TV interview.

Crime legislation — on young offenders, sentencing and child predators — that was introduced but not passed before the election is also expected. The opposition parties are already raising alarms. The New Democrats say measures that would allow law enforcement to

monitor Internet activity without a warrant will amount to “legalized widespread snooping on average citizens.” The Tories say the measures will give law enforcement agencies “up-to-date tools” to fight crime.

The bill Here’s what the omnibus bill is expected to do on: TERRORISM Allow police to detain terrorism suspects for up to three days without charges. Let judges jail witnesses who won’t testify about terrorism.

YOUTH CRIME

TELECOMMUNICATIONS

Simplify pre-trial detention rules so youths accused of serious crimes — including property crimes over $5,000, sexual exploitation and murder — can be jailed before trial. Expand “violent offence” definition so youths who endanger public safety during a crime can be jailed.

Make telecom providers install surveillance software, allowing police to track Internet and mobile-phone activity. Make telecoms disclose customer information to authorities. SENTENCING End house arrest for perpetrators of violent crimes, including sexual assault. End pardons for sexual assaults on minors, offenders with three convictions prosecuted by indictment. CHILD MOLESTATION Create or increase mandatory minimum jail time for certain sexual offences involving children.

Warning over visa for Mexicans

OTTAWA Senior bureau-

crats warned the Harper government that imposing a new visa on Mexican travellers would overload Canada’s diplomatic capacity. The deputy ministers of Foreign Affairs and International Trade offered that assessment in a July 2009 briefing note.

Ex-Air Canada ePassports pilot, wife could carry killed in Reno hefty price tag air show crash The first version of A former Air Canada pilot and his wife were among nine people killed in Nevada after a 1940s-era plane crashed during an air show. George Hewitt, 60, and his wife Wendy, 57, were sitting with a group of vintage military plane owners when a P-51 Mustang crashed near a grandstand at the Reno air show on Friday, killing them instantly. The couple reportedly had moved recently from Washington to Fort Mohave, Ariz., after Hewitt retired. He was born in Winnipeg and flew as a pilot with Air Canada for about 40 years.

Canada’s new electronic passport carries a hefty price tag — an ominous sign that the general version being issued late next year might cost triple or more what Canadians pay today. Since January 2009 the federal government has issued 40,000 so-called ePassports to government officials and diplomats. An expense claim filed by Prime Minister Stephen Harper indicates the cost of the diplomatic version is far more than the $87 that adult Canadians pay now. Harper purchased four diplomatic ePassports for himself, his wife and two children, at $225 each.

Already owing about 150 per cent its annual economic output, Greece has said it has enough cash to carry its debt to mid-October, by which time it will need about $8 billion to stave off default.

Jobs over austerity: Obama Plan proposes minimum tax rate for earners of more than $1 million Even as President Barack Obama prepares his opening bid on long-term debt reduction, the White House wants to keep the focus on jobs and is determined to avoid getting sucked into another budget fight with lawmakers. Administration officials see the task of attending to deficits as necessary but not necessarily urgent, compared with the need to revive the economy and increase employment. The White House also sees this as the time to draw sharp

contrasts with Republicans. So when Obama announces at least $2 trillion in deficit reduction measures today, he is not expected to offer all the compromises he reached with House Speaker John Boehner in July. The plan represents an economic bookend to the $447 billion in tax cuts and new public works spending that Obama has proposed to as a short-term measure to stimulate the economy and create jobs.

Cartoon by Michael de Adder Letters Why are people starving to death in Somalia, Ethiopia and Kenya? The world has no shortage of food. Americans, Canadians and Europeans are dying of diabetes, cholesterol and obesity. The western countries are consuming too much food at the expense of the rest of the planet. Just to feed our appetite for meat requires huge amounts of agricultural land to grow plant-based feed to fatten livestock animals. We are on a downward spiral. We treat our pet rocks and gardens better than children and people experiencing real human suffering. Decisions are made all for the sake of money, power and privilege, or should I say control of oil and resources. I hate to go all Jesus on you, but Christ did say that it is easier for a camel to go through an eye of a needle than a rich man to enter the Kingdom of God. This biblical quote makes a lot of sense. Greed is a sin and it has played a major part in shaping the world and its citizens into either haves or have nots. ALEX SANGHA

Recovered message in a bottle a ‘miracle’ A Japanese teenager expressed her gratitude yesterday after a U.S. sailor in Hawaii found a bottle she had tossed into the sea off Japan’s southern coast as a child. Saki Arikawa, 17, said she had almost forgotten about the bottle and initially couldn’t believe it was found after five years. She said “it’s a miracle” the bottle was found. “It’s incredible,” she said.

The clear glass bottle was found Thursday by Navy Petty Officer Jon Moore during a beach cleanup at the Pacific Missile Range Facility on Kauai island. The bottle contained four origami cranes — symbols of peace in Japan — as well as a photo of Arikawa’s elementary school class and a note dated March 25, 2006, and signed by Arikawa saying she wanted it to be “a graduation memory.” The bottle was one of five she tossed into the ocean in 2006 as her sixth-grade class graduated from Kokubu Elementary School in Kagoshima. Three other bottles had previously been recovered, including two in Alaska and a third at another location in Hawaii. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Oscar-winning actor Morgan Freeman stars in Dolphin Tale.

Dolphin-friendly Freeman Actor Morgan Freeman talks about working with Winter the dolphin in Dolphin Tale STEVE GOW

SCENE@METRONEWS.CA

There are few actors that can upstage legendary Oscar-winning thespian Morgan Freeman. But of course that’s exclusively including human actors. In his latest movie, Freeman’s co-star is a dolphin. “That’s why they play such big roles (in our lives),” said Freeman recently about the animals’ natural acting ability. “And it’s like they’re doing their own thing — you

don’t know if they’re trained to do this stuff or if they’re showing off. I’m fascinated by them because I’ve seen them do stuff like that in the wild.” Specifically, Freeman is talking about Winter, the charming subject and star of this Friday’s release of Dolphin Tale, an inspiring story of a young marine mammal that was saved with the use of a prosthetic after losing its tail in a tragic accident. “I think this is a particularly special dolphin,” in-

sisted director Charles Martin Smith. “She has so much personality and she’s such a character. She’s basically the equivalent of a human 10-yearold … when I first started working on the script for this I sat with her for three days and watched her and (observed) all the things that she does that I could write into the script.” Among those traits included some interesting human-like habits and even an affinity for human contact. For Freeman, it

was an agreeable improvement on some of his previous co-stars. “I worked with a bear one time and the guy said ‘don’t look him in the eye’. That’s a note I need — don’t look the damn thing in the eye,” laughed Freeman. “(Winter) has been in this aquarium for most of her life and even if she was wild, it wouldn’t bother me because somehow it appears that (dolphins) have the same kind of affinity for us as we have for them.”

Freeman’s animal love Morgan Freeman on his love of animal movies: “The first book I ever read was about a horse — Black Beauty — and I was lost in animal stories after that,” said Freeman. “We have a kind of symbiosis with animals that we interact with.” STEVE GOW

It’s 1994 all over again, with a rerelease of The Lion King opening at the top of the box office. A 3D version of the Disney favourite earned a surprising $29.3 million in its first weekend in theatres, according to Sunday estimates. Last week’s No. 1 movie, Contagion, dropped a spot in its second weekend. Drive came in at No. 3 with just over $11 million. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Charlie Sheen seems to have buried the hatchet. Appearing on Thursday’s Tonight Show, the former star of Two and a Half Men radiated a forgiving mood toward his old workplace. Asked by host Jay Leno if he’s still angry at the sitcom’s producers and network, he said no: He would have fired himself had he been in their shoes. Then he added with a laugh, “Well, maybe not like they did.” Sheen was dumped last March after the actor railed against his bosses, and they blasted him for his unpredictable behaviour as a drug-abusing, reckless playboy. “It was bad,” Sheen said, summing up the clash, “and I own my part in that, and I just want to make everything right.” Asked why he thought he should have been fired, Sheen explained, “I should have been a little more re-

The hit CBS comedy returns today for a new season with Ashton Kutcher as Sheen’s replacement. He praised Kutcher as being “accomplished,” and when asked if he had any advice for his successor, he said he’d like to give him a hug and tell him, “Make me proud, dude.” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Reclaiming the backyard TIMBER PRESS/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

New book shows how to find stuff for your yard without making a trip to a store Learn what you can do Trash talk has helped Matthew Levesque fashion an inventive career in garden design. He holds “creative reuse” workshops, and his “yardscaping” creations made from locally available items have become austerity-chic collectibles. “I’m trying to get people thinking about alternative sources for their materials,” said Levesque, author of The Revolutionary Yardscape. “Lots of landscape people are beginning to pay attention.” A slumping economy is forcing consumers to be as imaginative about finding landscaping supplies as they are about using them. Levesque is a master at crafting yard decor from

cast-off materials that otherwise would stuff landfills or litter vacant lots. He turns toolboxes into planters, and makes walkways from tumbled, recycled glass. He uses doors for fences and links small ceramic tubes into rain chains, a substitute for downspouts. “It’s the art of using what we’ve got,” said Levesque, who also operates what he describes as a “thrift store for house parts” in San Francisco. “I use my garden as a test kitchen, trying things out to see if they work.” Ignore the cookie-cutter garden furnishings sold at big box stores and nurseries, Levesque said. Instead, reclaim building

can make one-of-a-kind statements.

“What is a flowerpot but a hole with a bottom

and sides? Through reuse, a great many things can fit that description,” he said. Where should you look for reclaimable building supplies? Salvage yards are great spots to start, Levesque said. “They generally offer goods at reasonable prices, and often the proceeds go to an affiliated non-profit endeavour,” he said. “This is a quick place to find beautiful old windows, doors, racks of sheet metal and other useful stuff.” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

CHEWING OVER USE OF PLASTIC NIGHT GUARDS Many of us chew plastic night guards eight hours a day; one third of our lives. I asked our dentist if these plastic products have harmful chemicals. His response was, ‘They say not, but I don’t believe it.’ What do you know about night guards? Tara of Vancouver

QUEEN OF GREEN LINDSAY COULTER GREEN@METRONEWS.CA

I don’t know very much about the plastic used to

make night guards. However, my mom happens to be a dental assistant. She was able to get the manufacturer’s Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for night guards from a dental lab. Unfortunately, the MSDS sheet isn’t all that helpful. Half of the ingredients are ethyl

methacrylate (48 per cent), hydroquinone (one per cent) and P-methyoxyphenol (one per cent). The other 50 per cent of the ingredients are called “Confidential Ingredient A”, registered as a trade secret. Ethyl methacrylate is a base material for coatings and adhesives.

It’s used in a host of things, from resins to paper finishing to dental products. I can’t speak to its safety, and the trade secret ingredient is a huge stumper. You don’t need to be related to a dental assistant to find out about the products used in your

mouth. Ask your dentist to find out more about the product and get contact information for the company. Another point worth mentioning is that the Canadian Dental Association is one of 12 national organizations representing all areas of the health

sector, along with the David Suzuki Foundation, that have produced a joint statement spelling out a commitment to creating an environmentally responsible health sector. David Suzuki Foundation


Percentage of educated Canadians high: OECD A new study has found Canadians’ education levels are outpacing those of many countries. Statistics Canada reports 92 per cent of adults aged 25 to 34 had completed secondary school compared with 80 per cent of those aged 55 to 64. The 12-percentagepoint gap was smaller than the average across the 34 countries of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), where the proportions stood at 81 to 61. StatsCan also says the proportion of adults aged 25 to 64 with a college diploma or a university degree rose to 50 per cent from 39 per cent between 1999 and 2009, outpacing the average OECD increase. Canada’s employment rate for adults aged 25 to 64 who had not completed secondary education was 55 per cent in 2009, while the rate for graduates of college and university programs was 82 per cent. Canada devoted six per cent of its gross domestic product to educational institutions in 2007, about the same share as the OECD average. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Patriots quarterback unstoppable again Sets pair of NFL records

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, left, celebrates a touchdown last night in Foxboro, Mass.

Big-yardage games are becoming routine for Tom Brady. So is setting records. Brady threw for 423 yards yesterday — six days after setting a single-game team record of 517 — and led the New England Patriots to a 35-21 win over the San Diego Chargers. “It seems like he’s always great,� linebacker Rob Ninkovich said. “He’s the best quarterback in the league.� The NFL mark for most yards passing in the first two games of a season, 854, lasted about three hours. Carolina rookie Cam Newton set that before Brady ended the day at 940 yards. Brady became the first player in NFL history to follow a 500-yard passing performance with a 400yard game, and the Patriots scored 30 points for the 10th straight regularseason game. He threw

three touchdown passes and went 31 for 40 with no interceptions as the Patriots (2-0) scored on each of their four first-half possessions. The Chargers (1-1) turned the ball over inside the Patriots’ 35-yard line three times, leading to 17 points. They also were stopped on a fourth-andgoal at the one-yard line, and the Patriots started a 99-yard drive that ended with one of Brady’s two scoring passes to Rob Gronkowski. Brady, who connected with seven receivers, said simply, “We were able to spread the ball around.�
