City’s part-time workers fear fewer shifts Labour negotiations. March 24 looms as strike day, but talks continue

The union for Toronto’s 23,000 inside workers says the city is intent on reducing workers’ hours and thus their pay in this round of bargaining. As the clock ticks down to a March 24 strike deadline, the issue is particularly acute for the 10,000 part-timers who fear they won’t earn enough to make ends meet. That contrasts with the city’s outside workers, who settled on Feb. 5, where the union’s goal was to retain job

security for full-timers. With the inside workers, members of CUPE Local 79, a key concern is getting enough part-time hours. Progress has been slow over the past 12 weeks of bargaining but both sides say they hope a strike deadline announced Thursday will provide the impetus to move forward. The city is targeting not only part-timers but also full-time workers in the 10 long-termcare homes, where management wants to reduce the work week by five hours. It amounts to a seven per cent pay cut, the union says. The city’s proposal would reduce shift overlap that allows workers to brief the incom-

‘Doug Ford is here to stay’ On the road again

Politics. Shutting down mayor’s contentious brother isn’t cure-all for troubled Ford administration: Insiders As the perpetually undermined Ford administration struggles to find its footing, some have suggested that getting control of the mayor’s polarizing brother will solve the problem. But according to those closest to the situation, Doug Ford is the symptom, not the solution, of an administration in trouble. As of this week, only onethird of city council actively supports Rob Ford’s agenda. Those within the mayor’s circle pin much of the blame on the elder Ford, who, as Coun. Peter Milczyn says, sometimes speaks before he thinks. In reality, the problems are much deeper. Interviews with Ford allies and political staff paint a picture of an understaffed and overworked mayor’s office in chaos, where no one knows exactly who is in charge. It’s the kind of environment that stokes a bad case of sibling rivalry. “Some days they love each other. Others, it’s like they hate each other ... but what are you going to do? They’re brothers,” said one Ford supporter. “Doug Ford is here to stay.” March-break activities

Bata museum clarification Abracadabra: A Magical March Break is the theme of this year’s March-break activities at the Bata Shoe Museum. Festivities kick off Monday with a special magic show by Toronto’s Magic Guy Phil Pivnick. For more, visit batashoemuseum.ca. Incorrect information appeared in Thursday’s Metro. METRO

Mayor Rob Ford may have lost his grip on city council, but he grabbed a lot of ears when he recently took over The City, a Newstalk 1010 radio show. •

Sometimes he comes in handy. Recently, when the mayor began floating road tolls and new taxes to pay for underground transit, it was Doug who went on air to do damage control. Said one centrist councillor: “Sometimes I think they use Doug to float ideas and see how they pan out. Then the mayor

doesn’t wear it.” Regardless, he’s not going anywhere. So rather than try to fight the losing battle of silencing him, the Ford team is just trying to quiet him down. There are other problems to deal with. “He got elected because he’s cheap, and he’s in deep trouble because he’s cheap,” said one member of Ford’s inner circle,

noting that the penny-pinching mayor has rebuffed attempts to convince him to hire more staff. Ford’s office operates with about half the manpower that David Miller had. And the good-cop, bad-cop routine doesn’t work with one guy. This is the case for the mayor’s ultra-conservative policy advisor, Mark TowKingston

hey, who is deeply unpopular with councillors of all stripes. Most of the right-wing blame Towhey for the transit fiasco. The policy advisor had spent the last year working on a funding strategy for Sheppard. Those close to him say he struggled in dealing with TTC bureaucracy, which favoured the light-rail strategy. But Towhey is also the man Ford leaned on to keep his allies in line. For those supporters, Towhey’s always uncompromising position and sometimes harsh tactics led to bad blood. When it came time to negotiate on transit, he wasn’t someone people felt they owed a favour. From the left and even some on the right, councillors have called for his head.

Milton. Ditching of dog in schoolyard caught on security cameras The suspects who dropped off a sick and injured dog in a Milton schoolyard were caught on video, the Oakville and Milton Humane Society says. Footage from security cameras at J.M. Denyes Public School shows a car pull up near a fenced-in play area, a passenger get out of the car carrying a dog, and drop him four feet over the side of the fence, says humane society spokeswoman Brenda Dushko. That was on Feb. 24, a rainy, snowy and blustery night, with temperatures below freezing, according to Environment Canada historic data. Winds were gusting up to 65 kilometres per hour. “He was left there basically in the cold to die. There was no way he would have survived the night,” Dushko said. The dog, a white, year-old male boxer, had been seriously neglected, with a fractured hip that had never been treated. He also had a skin condition and two different infections that caused him to lose more than 85 per cent of his fur. He was in “terrible shape” and required emergency vet care.

He was only healthy enough for surgery as of Thursday, said humane society spokeswoman Brenda Dushko. Suspects can be charged under the OSPCA act.

Billy Bishop. Harper set to announce funding for airport tunnel construction Prime Minister Stephen Harper is expected to announce an injection of federal funding for the island airport’s tunnel construction project Friday morning. Harper is scheduled to speak at Billy Bishop airport alongside Minister of Finance Jim Flaherty, Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, and chairman of the Toronto Port Authority (TPA), Mark McQueen. It’s reported the event will serve as the groundbreaking ceremony for the construction project, though neither the Port Authority nor the Prime

Minister’s office would confirm Thursday night. Late last year, the TPA announced Forum Infrastructure Partners, which includes PCL, Arup and Technicore, will design, build, finance and maintain the tunnel. The exact details of the financing have not been released, but the TPA has previously said the best option was a public-private partnership. Construction on the 240 meter-long tunnel linking Toronto to the island airport is expected to take two years.

Even dinosaurs look good in basic black: Report

Liberals padding graduation rate: Opposition

Scientists say an unusual crowlike dinosaur had glossy black feathers that probably were a way to call attention to itself and find a mate. They say it’s the oldest example of iridescence on an animal, dating to 130 million years ago in rural China. The dinosaurs are called microraptors because they did not get much longer than 76 centimetres. They look like black birds, except with fearsome teeth, claws and a set of secondary wings attached to their legs. The report is published in this week’s edition of the journal Science. the associated press

The Ontario government is misleading the public when it includes students who take five years to complete the four-year high-school curriculum in its graduation rate, the opposition parties said Thursday. The province eliminated Grade 13 in 2003, but the government still includes students who take an extra year in its official grad rate, despite criticism from the auditor general about the practice. The government said the graduation rate for last year was 82 per cent, but admitted when questioned that only 73 per cent of Ontario students completed high school in four years. the canadian press

Not making the grade

A student demonstrator in Montreal feared losing sight in one eye on Thursday, feeding an atmosphere of heightened tensions over Quebec’s tuition-fee hikes. Francis Grenier, 20, suffered a partially detached retina after the explosion of a police stun grenade during a demonstration Wednesday in downtown Montreal. Seven people were arrested during two protests — the latest in a string of actions by students who believe Quebec’s rockbottom tuition rates are a basic right. In the main protest, riot police armed with batons and tear gas charged into a group of demonstrators who were blocking access to a public building. Protesters pelted the helmeted officers with snowballs. The ambulance service initially reported Wednesday that it had treated four people — including a police officer — for only minor injuries. But Jeanne Reynolds, a spokeswoman for one of the student groups, described Grenier’s injury as serious.

Police reaction • Investigation. Montreal police say they have interviewed Grenier and are trying to determine what happened. • Determining cause. “Certainly, we’re going to investigate to see what caused this man’s injuries,” said department spokesman Raphael Bergeron, who described Grenier’s injury as “quite serious.” “Was it a device used by police, or something else?”

“We don’t know yet whether he will lose his eyesight or not,” she said. “He’s in bad shape, so he’s resting right now.” Reynolds maintained that Grenier wasn’t causing trouble when he was wounded. Grenier was quoted in media reports saying that he was playing the harmonica alongside other protesters, when police moved in swiftly without giving people time to disperse. the canadian press

Russia’s claim denied. Libya PM: We’re not training Syrian rebels

Trend. Star-athlete retweets becoming modern-day autographs

Libya’s prime minister denied on Thursday Russian allegations that his government is hosting and supporting a training camp for Syrian rebels but said his country stands with the people of Syria opposed to President Bashar Assad’s government. Prime Minister Abdurrahim el-Keib said he was unaware of any such facility and that if one was operating in Libya it was doing so without authorities’ knowledge. He added, however, that the Libyan government does support the “good” cause of Syrians opposed to Assad. “We, I believe, were the first country to recognize the Syrian transitional council, and we did it because we felt that the Syrian cause is a good cause,” el-Keib told reporters at the State Department after meeting with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. “It’s people raising their voice asking for freedom.” “As far as training camps, unless this is something that is done without government permission, which I doubt, I am not aware of any,” he said.

Fans have turned Twitter into a digital version of the autograph session, asking — sometimes begging — stars from every sport for a shoutout. Oh, sure, some requests are designed to raise the profile of a charitable cause. But most fans are simply looking for a little love from their favourite athletes. “It’s almost like capturing a photo of yourself with that person,” said Chris Abraham, senior vice-president at Social Ally, a social media firm. “For a second there, you’ve breached their celebrity. They’ve actually allowed you to come over and take a camera shot of you two together, and you can share it with all your friends.” Now, a retweet might not sound all that thrilling. You

Scandal. Bureaucrat used public funds for massages, TVs: Watchdog A federal public servant charged massages as office supplies, put in for bogus expenses, took home flatscreen TVs paid for with office funds and used a government car as a personal vehicle, all while bullying and browbeating underlings. These are among the findings of a damning report tabled Thursday by Public Sector Integrity Commissioner Mario Dion. The case involves a western regional manager in Human Resources and Skills Development who is not otherwise identified. Dion said lax policies allowed the manager to divert government equipment to a personal business, claim phoney expenses and cut sweetheart deals for family and friends, while terrorizing staff. The manager also ignored rules about confidentiality and disclosed personal information about employees to other members of staff. As well, the manager used the passwords and access codes of employees who worked

Corruption The manager, who had been in the job for nine years, left the government during Dion’s 2010 investigation, although the report doesn’t say whether the bureaucrat was fired or quit. • The department says it has tightened its procedures to keep closer track of spending and better monitor its staff. And it has recovered the TVs and other goodies the manager took home.

in different offices to make financial entries without their knowledge or consent. “I have determined that the breadth, severity and frequency of the manager’s wrongdoing constitute gross mismanagement in the public sector,” Dion said in a release. The mess was uncovered after frightened public servants complained to Dion’s office in February 2010. the canadian press

Aung San Suu Kyi’s steely resolve

Aung San Suu Kyi used Thursday’s visit of Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird to fire another round in her long fight for freedom — she warned of voter fraud threatening Myanmar’s coming landmark elections. With a steely resolve, the celebrated Nobel laureate

warned that bogus voters’ lists are threatening her country’s tough road to democratic freedom. Baird, latest in a long line of international visitors, readily agreed. The revelation added gravity to Baird’s historic visit to Myanmar, also known as Burma, where he personally conferred

Advertorial

Consumers shouldn’t think twice about switching insurance companies The rates charged by different insurance companies to insure the same driver, with the same car, for the same coverage, can vary by hundreds and even thousands of dollars. But, if you’re like most consumers, you worry that switching insurance companies means losing your “loyalty discount.” The truth is that switching insurance companies may cause you to lose your loyalty discount (if you had one in the first place), but that doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll pay more for car insurance or that

you can’t save a bundle in the end. The fact is, some insurance companies may provide a small discount on your premium if you’ve been with them for a long time – but that small discount can quickly become irrelevant if another company has a rate for you that is significantly less than what you’re currently paying. After all, what good is 5% off of an annual rate of $1,500 (a $75 savings) if you could pay $1,100 (a $400 savings) with another company? With so many insurance companies providing car insur-

ance in Ontario, odds are you are not currently insured with the company that offers the best rate for your driving profile. Insurance quoting sites like InsuranceHotline.com can help by providing an independent, unbiased rate comparison from its network of over 30 insurance companies to find you a lower rate available for your profile. Sadly, the misguided fear of repercussions from their current insurer is what keeps many consumers from taking action and shopping around. The truth is that your insur-

ance company has no way of knowing if you are shopping around for a better rate. In fact, even if they did know you were checking out your options, you

cannot be penalized in any way for trying to find a better deal. And even if you don’t find a better rate, at least you’ll know where you stand.

It’s a fact of life — you need auto insurance. But now you can save hundreds (even thousands) by shopping around for it. It’s fast, FREE and easy to use, with absolutely no obligation. After all, who says you have to spend a lot to get a lot? Check online and start saving today!

Osama bin Laden spent his last weeks in a house divided, amid wives riven by suspicions. On the top floor, sharing his bedroom, was his youngest wife and favourite. The trouble came when his eldest wife showed up and moved into the bedroom on the floor below. Others in the family, crammed into the three-storey villa compound where bin Laden would eventually be killed in a May 2 U.S. raid, were convinced that the eldest wife intended to betray the Al Qaeda leader. The picture of bin Laden’s life in the Abbottabad compound comes from Brig. Shaukat Qadir, a retired Pakistani army officer who spent months researching the events and says he was given rare access to transcripts of Pakistani intelligence’s interrogation of bin Laden’s youngest wife, who was detained in the raid. Qadir was also given rare entry into the villa, which was sealed after the raid and demolished last month. Pictures he took showed the villa’s main staircase, splattered with blood. Other pictures show windows protected by iron grills and the 20-foot-high walls around the villa.

The 54-year-old bin Laden himself seemed aged beyond his years, with suspected kidney or stomach diseases, and there were worries over his mental health, Qadir said he was told by ISI officials and an al-Qaida member he interviewed in the border regions. Bin Laden lived and died on the third floor. One room he shared with his youngest wife, Amal Ahmed Abdel-Fatah al-Sada, a Yemeni who was 19 when she married the alQaida leader in 1999. Another wife, Siham Saber, lived in another room on the same floor that also served as a computer room, Qadir told AP. The arrival of his eldest wife, Saudi-born Khairiah Saber, in early 2011 stirred up the household, Amal said in her ISI interrogation, according to Qadir. There was already bad blood between Khairiah, who married bin Laden in the late 1980s, and Amal because of bin Laden’s favouritism for the younger Yemeni woman, Qadir

said he was told by tribal leaders who knew the family. Even ISI officials who questioned Khairiah after the raid were daunted by her. “She is so aggressive that she borders on being intimidating,” Qadir said he was told by an ISI interrogator. Khairiah showed up at Abbottabad in February or March 2011 and moved into the villa’s second floor, Amal told her interrogators. Khalid, bin Laden’s son with Siham, was suspicious, according to Amal’s account. He repeatedly asked Khairiah why she had come. At one point, she told him, “I have one final duty to perform for my husband.” Khalid immediately told his father what she had said and warned that she intended to betray him. Amal said bin Laden was also suspicious but was unconcerned, acting as if fate would decide, according to Qadir’s recounting of the interrogation transcript. The Associated Press

The account Osama Bin Laden had two marriages before Khairiah Saber that ended in divorce and had more than 20 children with his various wives. • Movement. Youngest wife Amal Ahmed Abdel-Fatah al-Sada gave her interrogators details on bin Laden’s movements after fleeing Afghanistan. Her account underscored that bin Laden did not stay long in

Pakistan’s tribal-run regions on the border where the U.S. long presumed he was holed up. • Hiding. She and bin Laden hid for several months in 2002 in Salman Talab, a suburb of Kohat, a northwest Pakistani border town. There bin Laden was visited at least once by Khalid Sheik Mohammed, the 9-11 mastermind arrested in Rawalpindi on March 1, 2003.

Feds move to stop Air Canada strike March break. Job action on Monday would disrupt travel plans for thousands of Canadian families Federal Labour Minister Lisa Raitt stepped in Thursday to prevent a work stoppage at Air Canada next week that would have thrown the travel plans for thousands of fam-

ilies into chaos at the beginning of a holiday week. Raitt sent the dispute between the airline and two of its unions — the pilots and ground crew — to the Canadian Industrial Relations Board to see how a work stoppage would affect the health and safety of Canadians. It was the same manoeuvre that Raitt used when it appeared as if Air Canada’s flight attendants would go on strike, but the CIRB never

Minister

“In the case of health and safety matters ... they cannot effect a work stoppage” Lisa Raitt, Minister of Labour

made a decision on that matter. Air Canada had threatened earlier Thursday to lock its pilots out on Monday after

TransCanada’s Keystone XL pipeline has been denied a lifeline thrown to it by congressional Republicans after the U.S. Senate narrowly rejected their attempts to bypass the White House and force the immediate approval of the controversial project. A total of 56 senators voted Thursday in favour of the measure inserted into a bigger highway bill, four short of the 60 needed for approval. Eleven Democrats were among those who wanted the pipeline to move forward as quickly as possible. the associated press

Disruptions

Storm gets off to benign start One of the strongest solar storms in years engulfed Earth early Thursday, but scientists say the planet may have lucked out. Hours after the storm arrived, officials said there were no reports of problems with power grids, satellites or other technologies that are often disrupted by solar storms. But that could still change. the associated press

• The storm is part of the sun’s normal 11-year cycle, which is supposed to reach a peak next year. Solar storms don’t harm people, but they do disrupt technology. During the last peak around 2002, experts learned that GPS was vulnerable to solar outbursts. • Because new technology has flourished since then, scientists could discover some new systems are also at risk, said the director of the Center for Integrated Space Weather Modeling at Boston University.

Earth dealt a good solar storm, this year The storm could shake the planet’s magnetic field in ways that could disrupt technology but also spread colourful Northern Lights. Forecasters can predict the speed a solar storm travels and its strength, but the north-south orientation is the wild card. And this time, Earth got dealt a good card with a northern orientation.

Scientist says

“It could flip-flop and we could end up with the strength of the storm still to come.” Joe Kunches Scientist, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Space Weather Prediction Center

Not even Eddie Murphy’s charisma can save this lead-footed film. HANDOUT

This silence isn’t golden Reel Guys

RICHARD CROUSE AND MARK BRESLIN

A Thousand Words. Eddie Murphy’s spiritual comedy needs some divine intervention Richard: Mark, A Thousand Words is billed as a comedy but I see it as something else entirely. I see it as a tragedy — a tragic waste of Eddie Murphy’s talent. He’s in virtually every scene but his wide-eyed mugging for the camera — there hasn’t been this mugging on screen since the first Death Wish movie (only movie geeks will get that joke) — isn’t funny, it’s just annoying. What did you think? Mark: The movie isn’t funny, period. It has a lead foot and a tin ear. It felt like a middle period Jim Carrey movie like

Liar, Liar or Yes Man, in which the main character has a supernaturally imposed rule that the comic has to follow that leads to some kind of enlightenment or personal growth. Murphy’s imposed silence in the movie robs him of his greatest gift — the gift of gab. So all he can do is pop his eyeballs and mime his lines. But, Richard, if the movie is this bad, why did it hold my interest? RC: It didn’t hold mine, but I would guess that you were responding to Murphy’s charisma. Even in terrible movies it’s hard to take your eyes off him. Although I have to say that I found this such an unpleasant movie-going experience that the loud fire alarm that rang intermittently in the theatre during the film was a welcome relief to what was happening on screen.

At least the fire alarm had some element of urgency to it, unlike the film, which seemed to think that allowing Murphy to pull faces at the camera for 90 minutes was enough to flesh out the story.

Synopsis Teaming up with Norbet director Brian Robins again, Eddie Murphy plays Jack McCall, a fast talking literary agent who double-crosses new age guru Dr. Sinja (Cliff Curtis) on a book deal. Soon after, a magical Bodhi tree erupts through the ground in Jack’s backyard. The tree will shed one leaf for every word McCall says, and after one thousand leaves have fallen, the true nature of the tree’s curse will be revealed.

MB: Maybe it was just relief that he didn’t wear the fat suit, or the glossy art direction, or the satirical pokes at pop spirituality. It has one good scene, where he “speaks” by using the prerecorded voice in various kids’ toys. But the abrupt turn of mood in the last third of the movie, changing from tepid comedy to outright mawkish sentimentalism made me squirm — big time. Sorry, but I don’t need a lesson in family values from a guy whose track record on Hollywood Boulevard speaks for itself.

I can sum up my thoughts on A Thousand Words in far less than a thousand words: “Don’t go. Save your money.” You?

RC: Ha!

MB: Bad.

It’s an interesting idea, you have to give it that. Based on the Uruguayan film La Casa Muda, Silent House follows a moody young woman (Elizabeth Olsen) as she’s haunted and terrorized in a country house she, her father and her uncle are renovating before selling. And when I say “follows,” I mean it literally: Silent House is presented in real time, as one continuous take, which can be interesting except for those moments when Olsen has to wait while the cameraman gets out of her way on the stairs. The film uses its main device to good effect in for the first half of its 88-minute running time, but as the tension continues to ratchet up and clues about what exactly the hell is going on here emerge, the whole thing starts to unravel.

It turns out there is life on Mars — and John Carter aims to save it. Based on the novels by Edgar Rice Burroughs, the film follows Carter (Canada’s own Taylor Kitsch), a former American Civil War captain who now spends his days searching for gold. But when Carter happens upon a special medallion that transports him to Barsoom (the planet we Earthlings call Mars), Carter is forced to fight again. On Barsoom, Carter discovers he can jump vast distances — a trick that interests the Tharks, the native inhabitants of the planet who take Carter prisoner. After escaping, Carter tries to make his way home but finds himself drawn into the fight for the future of Barsoom. There are some impressive graphics, but the film lacks a coherent storyline, runs about 30 minutes too long and, despite the epic battle scenes, fails to capture your attention.

Aiming for gentle charm and arriving at mercilessly manufactured whimsy, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen is an embarrassment to its talented stars Ewan McGregor and Emily Blunt and par for the course for pseudoprestige director Lasse Hallstrom. Paul Torday’s novel about a fisheries expert conscripted to help an eccentric Yemeni sheik stock the high-lands with schools of the titular fish is bad source material, but Hallstrom’s plodding, tonally uneven direction makes matters even worse — soft-focus romance and terrorist plots are treated with the same lazy, glossy attitude.

Bully slapped with ‘R’ rating Documentary. Filmmaker upset that movie may not be accessible to the crowd it aims to educate; petition sent to MPAA Lee Hirsch had a violent, nightmare middle school experience. Every day multiple students would punch him to the point where his arms were no longer black and blue— they were just plain yellow. “I had a really hard time communicating the urgency (for help),” he says, looking

back on the experience. “It was very difficult and painful. I couldn’t find an adult or my parents who were willing to help me make it stop.” He’s grown up, but Hirsch, a successful Sundance and Emmy-award winning director, is revisiting those painful days once more. In his new documentary Bully follows the stories of five children and their families, showing how bullying has affected their lives. But, even though it was intended to be an educational tool, Bully is garnering controversy. After being submitted to the MPAA, the governing body that issues

American Film Ratings, the board decided to slap the film with an R-rating because the obscene language was used multiple times. This means anyone under 17, the vast majority of the people who Hirsch hopes to affect with this film, will need an adult to come with them to see the film. “I was surprised and devastated,” Hirsch said. “This is a film that has been vetted by multiple educational organizations…. This film was not designed to be an R-Rated movie, and to have it rated R is clearly an obstacle.” The Associated Press

The Hunger Games screenwriter talks about appeasing fans Action. Simon Beaufoy feels the pressure of adapting a bestselling series of books into what could be a major movie franchise ned ehrbar

Metro World News in Hollywood

While the release of The Hunger Games is still more than two weeks away, Academy Award-winning screenwriter Simon Beaufoy is already hard at work on the followup. In fact, he tells Metro, he’s just turned in the first draft of his adaptation of Catching Fire to novelist and series creator Suzanne Collins. That’s got to make a guy a little nervous. “I think she’s reading it

possibly right now, the first draft. Could well be today,” he says of Collins, whose own background has been helpful in the scripting process. “Because Suzanne has been a film writer and a TV writer, funnily enough she’s already done a lot of adapting for me. They’ll cut my wage if you say that.” Beaufoy is no stranger to adaptation, with the Oscar-winning Slumdog Millionaire, 127 Hours and the upcoming Salmon Fishing in the Yemen among his credits. But taking on an installment of the hugely successful Hunger Games series was still daunting. “With this one, I had to be a lot more faithful also because there’s a fan base who are more than usually keen that you get it absolutely right,” he says. “The Hunger Games’ fan

base are passionate beyond anything I’ve ever come across, and I would fear for my life [if I get it wrong]. If I do too free an adaptation of that, I shall get firebombed. So I’m being very careful of that.” Of course, not everything from a book can make it into a movie, so not every bit of Catching Fire will make it to the screen, which Beaufoy freely admits. But he’s cagey when it comes to details. “[Collins] just knows her audience brilliantly, and she’ll say ‘That bit you just can’t cut out because they’ll all go crazy.’ And other bits she’ll go, ‘This is fine that you’ve changed this,” Beaufoy explains. “But she really knows her readers. And because she’s been in the film world, she understands about adapting, that things have to go and things have to change.”

Burke’s challenge: Snag a good, young goalie THE HOCKEY NEWS

SPORTS

Adam Proteau toronto@metronews.ca

Given how cruel February turned out to be for the Toronto Maple Leafs’ playoff chances, fans, media and team management are looking for answers and places in which to direct the blame. And as was identified in this column a couple months ago, the Buds’ biggest gamble — going with two unproven goalies — has become the rightful focal point. Now, GM Brian Burke can defend Jonas Gustavsson and James Reimer and call them his goalies of the future all he wants. But if the past few weeks have taught us anything, it’s that neither one is the goalie of the present. To be fair, there have been times both players have looked capable of taking the No. 1 job. However, their inability to do so consistently, or even steal a few games when Toronto was free falling through February, demonstrates Burke miscalculated when he chose not to bring in a veteran netminder to tutor and push his youngsters. Gustavsson likely will be allowed to leave when he becomes an unrestricted free agent in July. Reimer has two years left on a three-year, $5.4 million contract he signed last summer. Even if Toronto somehow makes the playoffs this season, there is absolutely no chance Burke comes back next year with Reimer and one of the organization’s goalies currently playing in the minors. Therefore, the veteran addition will have to come out of the free agent market, or via a trade. The free agent crop isn’t

bursting with sure-thing, bigmoney goalies; the most accomplished of that group, Martin Brodeur, will either re-sign with the Devils or retire. And the rest (including well-travelled goalies such as Evgeni Nabokov, Martin Biron and Tomas Vokoun) aren’t a longterm solution. And acquiring a netminder with his best years still ahead — Vancouver’s Cory Schneider being the primary example — will carry with it a huge price tag that could deplete the depth of organizational talent Burke’s management group has built up. So a trade for a good, young

goalie will be Burke’s biggest challenge, both this summer and in his entire time as Leafs GM. Failure at the same task is what sunk his predecessor John Ferguson, Jr., whose trades for Andrew Raycroft and Vesa Toskala were millstones around the franchise’s neck. The Leafs haven’t had dependable help in net since Ed Belfour posted a .918 save percentage and 2.13 goals-against average in 2003-04. And if Burke can’t solidify the team’s net situation soon, he’ll start to feel the heat as Ferguson did.

Injury update It may well speak volumes for the new style of hockey coach Randy Carlyle is demanding of the Maple Leafs that four players are hurt at the same time. •

Mike Brown and Cody Franson joined Joffrey Lupul and Colby Armstrong on the injured list Wedneday in the Leafs’ 3-2 loss to the Penguins. It was the second of backto-back games that featured

a fair bit more hitting and physical play than had been witnessed in the final weeks of Ron Wilson’s tenure. •

During Wilson’s last month, the team had not lost any man-games due to injury. The team took Thursday off.

It’s an opportunity for guys to step up,” captain Dion Phaneuf said. TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

MMA fighter hopes to stand out for skills, not gay porn past The Ultimate Fighter Live. Dakota Cochrane will battle to be one of 16 members to live in the TUF house when reality TV show airs on FX Canada

Spring training: Jays’ batters come alive Toronto Blue Jays Jose Bautista collides with New York Yankees pitcher David Phelps as he scores on a passed ball during a spring training game in Dunedin, Fla. on Thursday. J.P. Arencibia and Travis Snider homered and Brett Cecil gave up one hit over two scoreless innings as the Jays won 6-1. frank gunn/the canadian press

Dakota Cochrane’s controversial past is no secret in the MMA world. Now the question becomes how his brief stint in gay porn will play out when the new season of The Ultimate Fighter Live debuts Friday night. Dealing with his past is nothing new for Cochrane, so he’s ready for anything, he says. “Of course it bothers me,” he said this week on the set of the reality TV show, which airs on FX Canada. “But I can’t do much about it. I’ve kind of dealt with it since college, since the first time it came out.

‘Not something I’d do again.’

“There’s no way in hell I would redo it cause I know the repercussions that would come with it.” Dakota Cochrane, cast in ‘The Ultimate Fighter Live,’ on his brief stint acting in gay porn

The 25-year-old Cochrane — who is not gay and has a one-year-old son with fiancée Lacey — says he earned nearly $80,000 from taping a series of gay videos while a college student at the University of Nebraska-Kearney, where he was a standout track athlete. “I’m not going to try to hide it,” he said. “If you type in on Google, it comes up pretty easy. It’s just something I’m going to overcome.” While there has been plenty of buzz about his past, especially on MMA message boards, Cochrane is determined to stand out for his fighting abilities on the first season of the revamped show. While Cochrane, who

sports an 11-2 record, including an impressive victory over former WEC champion Jamie Varner, has been commended for being up front about his past, the issue will likely be a hot topic if the Nebraska native wins his first bout to become one of the 16 members to live in the TUF house. UFC president Dana White said Cochrane’s past is irrelevant and he deserves the same opportunity as any other UFC hopeful. “Listen, the guy has a past,” White said. “Who doesn’t? We all have pasts. He didn’t do anything illegal.... I’m a pretty forgiving person with people’s pasts.” the canadian press

Diego Luna lets loose in Casa de mi Padre Comedy. Actor relishes the freedom of hamming it up for the camera, but admits he’d never direct a comedy Ned Ehrbar

Metro World News in Hollywood

It’s not often that Diego Luna gets to act like an idiot, and he savoured the opportunity in Casa de mi Padre, playing the drug-fuelled, trouble-plagued brother to Will Ferrell’s humble Mexican ranch hand. But just because Luna — who has begun

directing as well — had such an eye-opening experience acting in an off-the-wall comedy, that doesn’t mean he’ll be stepping behind the camera for comedy. “I don’t know if I have what is needed,” he admits. This film looks like it was a lot of fun to make. It was crazy. It was fun. It was like a huge relief in my life, you know? I suddenly enjoyed every second of it. And the director said to me, “You know, do anything you want. Do everything. I’ll tell you when you went too far.” And he never said I went too far. I allowed myself to do stuff I’ve never, never allowed myself to do on a film set.

Casa de mi Padre opens next Friday. handout

What sort of stuff are we talking about? I always say I played a role called Raul Alvarez, but there was a role behind the role, you know? Behind the role there was the role of this

actor that made just these terrible choices, and that was very fun to do — allow yourself to go very intense in every sentence you say, in every reaction. The worst choices, falling into every

cliché possible, we were allowed to do that. We were allowed to also incorporate every mistake, you know? And in fact you could make it big and point at it.

And now you demand having that on every movie, right? I demand to have that in every day of my life, in fact. (laughs)

And you always have a drink in your hand. I remember in the gunfight, I said to [director Matt Piedmont], “When I hide behind my car, there should be a whiskey waiting for me.” And he went for it, and in f act there was this red carpet with different kinds of whiskeys, cigarettes and guns waiting for me. Just from nowhere, suddenly there was this minibar waiting for me.

You’re a director now as well. Has doing this film made you consider directing a comedy? I don’t know. I definitely want to try to act in another comedy one day, but I don’t know as a director. I don’t know if I would have what is needed. I’m a little of a control freak, and in comedy you need to give freedom to those who are there. There’s a lot of improvisation happening.

High Blood Pressure? High blood pressure is called the silent killer. If your BP is higher than normal, try to get it down to about 120/80. For many people it is easy to control. If it does not work for you we refund your money. On our website you will find over 50 testimonials with full names and towns from all over USA and Canada. Most of them have listed phone numbers and are happy to talk about the relief they had. No money was paid for testimonials. Dr. C. Hammoud M.H., Ph.D. recommends this effective fish peptide blood pressure natural product. So does Dr. Julian Whitaker M.D. I was on 3 blood pressure drugs that did not work well. After starting Bell #26 my readings are generally well below 120/80. Dona A. Anderson, 76, Sooke, BC  My blood pressure was 157/90 and I had side effects from prescription drugs. I bought a monitor. After 6 months on Bell #26 I was down to 120/80. Toni L. McCuistion, 52, Elizabethtown, PA  At work my driver’s medical test was too high at 170/100. After taking Bell #26 for a few days I went down to 128/84 which allowed me to pass #26 my work medical. Kris Geier, 48, Windsor, ON. Proof that it really works!

No more Mr. Nice Guy

Comedy. Affable Jason Segel, star of Jeff, Who Lives at Home, dishes on the things he dislikes — and cats are on his hit list ned ehrbar

Metro World News in Hollywood

Jason Segel has cemented his reputation as Hollywood’s reigning Nice Guy, and with his latest film, Jeff, Who Lives at Home, he takes that image even further, playing an unyieldingly optimistic loser living in his mother’s basement who sees the good in everyone. But there has to be something that makes Segel angry. As it turns out, he’s not such a big fan of cats. Your character in this is remarkably positive and open to life.

Yeah, he’s a special guy. He’s a watcher, and he’s taking things in. He really does have an undaunted confidence that there is a purpose to his life, and that’s a pretty courageous thing to believe. I think ultimately he doesn’t know how to make sense of a terrible tragedy — his father died when he was young, and he just believes that there must be some reason for that.

be an actor, I better do it.”

We’ve never really seen you get pissed off about anything, but there must be something that pisses you off. Yeah. When someone’s rude to service staff, I get furious. That could just as easily be you. Who the f--- are you to tell

a waiter to hurry up? I hate it. That’s my big one.

If you didn’t have an answer, I was going to ask you to say awful things about kittens. Anyone who would say, “I don’t have anything [that I hate]” is a liar. I am not a big fan of cats. I’m going to be controversial. I think they’re en-

In less careful hands, these could be pretty laughable, demeaned characters. I think the goal was to have the tone of life. We weren’t trying for broad comedy, we weren’t trying for dark comedy, we were just trying for honesty. And the Duplass Brothers demand honesty, and that’s what made me want to work with them. They roll the camera and they point it at you, and they don’t say much. They’ll let it roll for 40 minutes, and what sort of clicks in your mind is, “Well, I guess I’m supposed to do acting right now. They’re not going to say cut. I claim to

titled little bastards. You come home and a dog greets you at the door and is so happy to see you. A cat is just laying on your bed, has just done nothing all day, like, “Oh, hello...” You have nearly 1 million Twitter followers. How do you wrap your mind around that?

“A

I never say anything political or controversial. I tweet about food or me in a funny outfit. I think it’s remarkable you say something like, “Sandwiches are better than burritos” and hundreds of thousands of people have an opinion; like they’re ready to fight for it. “You don’t like burritos? F--you!” I think it’s hilarious.

What Apple should do now sound check

Dear Tim Cook: As the guy entrusted with guiding Apple after Steve’s

ascent to an insanely greater plane of existence, I sympathize with the burden on your shoulders. What can you do to keep Apple on this upward trajectory? If I may make a suggestion, I have an idea about music in my car. Having looked virtually at all the new in-dash infotainment systems, I’ve come to the conclusion that none of them are as good as they should be. Yes, things

have improved over the last couple of years, but there’s still a lot of work to be done. Every time I plug my iPhone into my car, I’m frustrated that the display in my dash doesn’t look or operate anything like the display on my phone. I can browse for songs and playlists but there’s nothing in the interface that allows me to find audio books or podcasts. There’s voice control, but compared to what Siri can do, it sucks. There’s nothing that reads

incoming texts to me. Nothing in my iPhone interfaces with the brains of the car, either, Tim. The trip computer doesn’t talk to the phone and the two GPS systems might as well be operating on different planets. In other words, just like the old days of the personal computer. Remember the mess in the ‘80s? DOS. Windows. Mac. BeOS. Commodore. Amiga. It was an OS nightmare with each system requiring its own learning curve. It wasn’t until we settled down into a standard-

ized world — mostly Windows, of course — that the masses began to get comfortable with computers. This is the chaos we see in cars today. Ford’s SYNC, Kia’s UVO and Entune from Toyota are all based on a Microsoft platform called Windows CE-based Windows Automotive Embedded System 7 — but all look and work differently. Others are working with QNX, a company owned by Research In Motion. None look likes the other. What we need, Tim, is

31

a good ol’ Window vs. Mac battle in the car. Better user interfaces. Standard communications protocols. More than 20 per cent of smartphone users already plug their devices into their dashboards and that rate of adoption is skyrocketing. Talk about a market waiting to be exploited! But what’s this about you starting to hire automotive engineers? That’s the rumour, anyway. Could it be you’ve already thought this through? Your friend, Alan

Ever wanted to see Hulk Hogan naked? Well, now, maybe you can. The latest celebrity to have to deal with the leak of a purported personal sex tape? Hulk Hogan. A video allegedly featuring the wrestling veteran and an unidentified woman — though not his ex-wife or his current wife — is reportedly being shopped around to adult film outlets, according to TMZ. A lawyer for Hogan (whose real name is Terry Bollea) says his client is mortified. “Terry Bollea is appalled at the unauthorized release of a secretly filmed video,” attorney David Houstan says. “He neither approved of the filming nor the

Amanda and Josh secretly dating: Us Weekly Despite claims last month that she’s happily single, Amanda Seyfried has reportedly been dating Josh Hartnett since January, according to Us Weekly. The pair were set up by a

mutual friend, sources say, and for now the relationship has been fairly casual. “Josh likes to keep things low-key, so they’ve just been hanging out,” a source says. METRO

While her younger sister, Elizabeth Olsen, is making a name for herself as an actress, former child star Ashley Olsen says she’s done with on-camera work. “[Mary-Kate and I] worked non-stop until we were 18. Then we decided to take a break and go to school — and that was when we decided to question whether we would carry on in entertainment,” Ashley tells Elle UK.

“It was time to step behind the process. I wanted to work on other things. It doesn’t mean I’m not interested in Hollywood, I like the way it operates and the people who are involved and the sense of possibility. But if I ever do get back in, it’s not going to be as an actress.” There’s no word if twin sister Mary-Kate feels the same way. METRO

Star magazine flames the fire on Will Smith sexuality rumours THE WORD

Dorothy Robinson scene@metronews.ca

Star magazine is throwing their tabloid hands in the air and are just going for it. This week’s cover story isn’t shocking for what they’re writing about, but rather what they’re implying. In a screaming headline that proclaims Will & Jada’s Divorce Secret: The Man Who Came Between Them! the magazine goes on to say that Duane Martin, Tisha Campbell-Martin’s husband, and Will Smith are just way too close, going on vacations to Miami, Trinidad and Las Vegas together. A “source” practically outs Smith:“Jada can’t stand Will’s relationship with Duane. She

feels like Will flaunts it in her face, hanging out with him every day and taking him on exotic vacations while she’s sitting home alone. Will and Jada’s marriage is completely fractured, and it’s only getting worse as Will spends more time away with Duane. I don’t know how much longer they can live this way. It’s only a matter of time until one of them makes the split official and files for divorce.” Of course, there have been whispers about both Will and Jada’s sexuality for years, but no magazine has so blatantly gone there. Unless, of course, I’m just totally reading into this and it’s super hetero to go on a myriad of exotic vacations with just your best friend and not your wife?

These aren’t your mom’s ham & cheese sandwiches

Serve this dish as a meal with boiled potatoes and cabbage. MATTHEW MEAD/ THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

The depth of flavour from the Guinness marinade in this recipe is enhanced by a touch of rich herb and garlic cheese that melts on the hot steak and onions. Freeze the cheese to make it easier to shave just enough on the top of the grilled steak and onions. This prevents too much cheese from being layered on. Onions are easier to grill without falling apart if you skewer them before cooking. Cut an onion into 1-cm (1/twoinch) thick slices. Thread the

centre of each onion with a bamboo skewer that has been soaked in water. Place the onion skewers on the cooking grates and turn once halfway through cooking.

1

Use paper towels to pat steak dry, then set it in a glass or stainless-steel container with a tight cover. Pour Guinness over steak. Set onion slices on top of steak, then cover container and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours.

2

Heat a gas or charcoal grill to medium. Set cheese in freezer. Remove meat and onions from marinade and pat dry. Brush everything with a thin coat of olive oil, then season with salt and pepper. Place steak and onions on cooking grate over direct heat and sear for 6 to 8 min-

utes. Turn steak and onions and sear on second side for another 6 to 8 minutes. (Alternatively, you also can sear steak and onions on a stovetop grill or grill pan for several minutes per side, then finish cooking in a 180 C/350 F oven set on a rack over a sheet pan.)

3

Transfer steak and onions to a platter. Remove cheese from freezer and use a vegetable peeler or paring knife to shave Boursin on top of steak and onions. Cover with foil and set aside. Brush each slice of bread with oil, then grill them until lightly toasted, 1 to 2 minutes. Thinly slice steak, then assemble sandwiches with bread, steak and onions.

MARKET RESTAURANTS IN NEW YORK AND WASHINGTON, AS WELL AS HILL COUNTRY CHICKEN IN NEW YORK. SHE

Ingredients 4 portions Start to finish: 30 minutes active (plus 1-2 hour marinating) • 1-kg (2-lb) flank steak or London broil, at least 2.5 cm (1 inch) thick • 1 can (441 ml/14.9 oz) Guinness beer • 2 large red onions, cut into 1-cm (1/2-inch) thick slices • 1 small container Boursin cheese • Olive oil • Kosher salt and ground black pepper, to taste • 8 thick slices country bread

When I was in university my party favour of choice was tequila. Nobody drank it seriously back then so I would channel my inner Charlie Sheen by bumming a beer and throwing back a few shots inbetween sips of brew. It sure impressed the ladies. At least I think it did. I can’t seem to remember. Either way, I still have an affinity for Mexico’s native spirit though today I’m more into how it mixes in cocktails. I love the margarita because it’s so easy make (all you need is tequila, Triple Sec orange liqueur and some lime juice) and it’s one cocktail that really allows the booze elements to show through the mix. A tequila purist would insist on the use of a white style as they typically do south of the boarder. I still prefer a gold tequila’s richer flavour in my margs. Tequila Cazadores Reposado ($34.95 - $39.99) is made with 100 per cent Blue Agave (the plant from which all true tequila is born) and is aged in new barrels (rather than the usual used bourbon casks). This all helps to enhance the spirit’s citrusy aroma and up-front vegetal/ spice expression. PRICES REFLECT THE RANGE ACROSS THE COUNTRY. SOME PRODUCTS MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE IN ALL PROVINCES.

Pancetta meets hummus & tomatoes One of the most widely available yet overlooked types of bacon is pancetta. A close relative of American bacon, it is the Italian version. Typically made from the belly, the curing process is the same but the meat is not usually smoked. During curing, it is often seasoned with black pepper, cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon and herbs. Slabs of pancetta are usually rolled into a log when sold at the deli. Here, salty pancetta combined with creamy hummus makes for a twist for an appetizer to serve up with drinks. Look for an aged balsamic vinegar to help bring out the sweetness of the tomatoes.

1

In skillet over medium-high heat, cook pancetta 5 mins. or until crispy and browned. Remove skillet from heat and add hummus, mixing well.

Pancetta, Hummus with Balsamic-Drenched Tomato Sandwich

4 portions Total cooking time: 15 minutes

2

• 125 g (4 oz) pancetta, finely cubed • 500 ml (16 oz) prepared hummus • 4 large, thick slices sour -dough bread, toasted • 2 large ripe tomatoes, cut into thick slices • 1 small red onion, finely diced • Aged balsamic vinegar • Ground black pepper

Thickly slather a quarter of the hummus-pancetta mixture over each slice of bread. Top each with 1 or 2 slices of tomato and a quarter of the red onion.

3

Drizzle each sandwich with balsamic vinegar, then season with pepper. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS/ ADAPTED BY EMILY RICHARDS, PROFESSIONAL HOME ECONOMIST, COOKBOOK AUTHOR AND TV CELEBRITY CHEF. FOR MORE, VISIT HER SITE EMILYRICHARDSCOOKS.CA

The city’s been waiting for this with baited breath... and raised forks of course. Runner-up contestant Rob Rossi from the first season of Top Chef Canada has finally opened up Bestellen at 972 College St. W. The big ticket item: a whole suckling pig, roasted in-house, with all the fixins’.

Taking over part of the building that was once a dilapidated motel is SLICED, a grab-and-go fresh, fast food shop that offers gourmet sandwiches, salads, soups and the like. Think Lobster BLT, Moroccan Lemon Chicken, and Fig and Prosciutto. Much of the menu was inspired by the owners’ travels abroad.
