Jazz fest 
to get 
the blues 


Crossover talent. 

Big names like 
Ben Harper and 
Charlie Musselwhite 
help fund smaller acts 


TREVOR 
GREENWAY 

trevor.grecnvvay@mctronews.ca 

Bluesheads will likely emerge 
from their shadowy watering 
holes for this year’s Ottawa Jazz 
Festival — especially on June 
27 when Ben Harper and blues 
harmonica great Charlie Mus¬ 
selwhite take over the Main 
Stage at Confederation Park. 

It’s been part of the plan all 
along: booking crossover bands 
that can draw in more crowds 
than most of today’s jazz art¬ 
ists. There are only so many 
Diana Kralls and Buddy Guys 
out there, says festival media 
and marketing manager Evan 
Clark. 

“There just aren’t that many 
major jazz bands these days 
that can fill a 5,000 to 10,000 
seat venue, they just don’t 
really exist anymore,” he said, 
adding organizers have always 
booked bigger crossover bands 
to help pay the way for smaller 
jazz groups. 

“Really, what it’s about, is 
jazz music needs to continue to 


exist and one of the only ways 
to continue to pay for it, at least 
in our market in Ottawa, is to 
off-set that cost with marquis 
programming.” 

Harper and his buddy Mus¬ 
selwhite are a duo that can 
do just that. The two “super 
soulful dudes,” are expected 
to shake things up a bit at the 
festival. 

“No matter what, Ben Harp¬ 
er is always doing something 
a little bit different. So that is 
certainly a major attraction for 
us, someone who just doesn’t 
continue to put out the same al¬ 
bum year after year after year,” 
added Clark. 

“Last time he was here, he 
was performing solo and this 
time he is with one of the great¬ 
est blues legends alive.” 

But jazz cats, shouldn’t fret. 

Clark says there will be 
plenty of jazz on this year’s bill, 
but he wouldn’t budge on any 
of the artists, only saying there 
are still a few unconfirmed acts 
that will “knock people’s socks 
off.” 

The full official lineup will 
be announced Friday morning 
at 11 a.m. 

This year’s TD Ottawa Jazz 
Festival takes place June 20-July 
1 at Ottawa’s Confederation 
Park and other venues across 
the city. Visit metronews.ca 
after 11 a.m. for the full festival 
lineup.

Carleton prof stirs the pot 
with Ukraine crisis speech

and not an invasion, joe lofaro/metro 


Political science. 

Professor says Russian 
military intervention 
is not an invasion 


^ LOFARO 

joe.lofaro@metronews.ca 

A Carleton University profes¬ 
sor who just returned from 
Moscow ruffled some feathers 
with students at a speech he 
gave in Ottawa Thursday when 
he suggested the Russian mil- 
itaiy intervention in Ukraine’s 
Crimea region was not an inva¬ 
sion. 

The Ukrainian govern¬ 
ment certainly considers the 
mobilization of Russian forces 
around its airport and coast 
guard base in recent weeks an 
invasion, as does Prime Min¬ 
ister Stephen Harper who de¬ 
manded Moscow withdraw its 
troops from the area. 

Some of the approximate¬ 
ly 75 students scoffed when 
ftotr Dutkiewicz, a professor 


of pohtical science at Carle¬ 
ton, referred to the move as a 
“breach of international law.” 
They also snickered when he 
said he hadn’t heard reports of 
armed forces with ties to Rus¬ 
sia in Crimea without insignia 
on their uniforms. 

“This was not a direct at¬ 
tack on the Ulo-ainian military 
facilities and also not an attack 
on the civilian facihties. The 
soldiers are not stationed in¬ 
side the government buildings. 
The government buildings are 
occupied by new government 
in Crimea,” said Dutkiewicz 
in an interview following his 
speech. “So there is no blood 
spread. I would say yes, there 
is an escalation, but not an in¬ 
vasion.” 

His speech came just a few 
hours before Canada’s Foreign 
Affairs Minister John Baird an¬ 
nounced $220 million in aid to 
the Ulorainian government. 

Dutkiewicz maintained the 
quota of Russian soldiers in the 
Crimea peninsula had not been 
breached, taking into account 
estimates from the Pentagon, 
although the number is hotly 


contested depending on who is 
counting. 

“There are different num¬ 
bers and we don’t know what 
number is correct,” he said. 

On Sunday, Crimea will 
hold a crucial referendum — 
one that Canada has refused 


to legitimately recognize — on 
wheSier or not to join Russia. 

As Canada continues to 
monitor the situation there, 
the threat of sanctions against 
Russia looms. But that will 
only end up hurting everybody 
involved, according to Dutkie 


wicz. 

“Because then Russia will 
reciprocate with sanctions 
against Ukraine and then it 
will be up to the European 
Union to pick up the tab of the 
Ukrainian losses in the Russian 
market,” he said. 



Light rail project 
renew interest in 


Young professionals who refuse 
to call the suburbs home might 
have a change of heart once 
Ottawa’s LRT comes rolling in 
2018, says an author of a study 
of the $2.1 billion project. 

Frannie Heeney, an Ottawa- 
based market intelligence 
coordinator at Colliers Inter¬ 
national, interviewed staff in 


the city’s planning department 
to find out how the Confed¬ 
eration Line might reshape the 
real estate landscape along the 
route. 

Released Wednesday, her re 
port signalled how there could 
be a shift in how downtown- 
loving, young professionals 
choose to live and work in 2018 


could 

suburbs 

when the LRT construction is 
expected to wrap up. 

Since travel time on the LRT 
from Tunney’s Pasture in the 
west to Blair Station in the east 
is estimated at 23 minutes, one 
of her theories is suburban life 
could be that much more ap¬ 
pealing for that demographic.

Artists take on 
poster vandals 



Fed up. Coalition 
pushing city to create 
bylaw against 
poster vandalism 


LUCY 
SCHOLEY 

iucy.schoiey® metronews.ca 

An Ottawa musician and arts 
curator is hoping the city will 
help put a stop to poster van¬ 
dalism. 

Rolf Klausener, who organ¬ 
izes the Arboretum Arts Festival 
and plays in the Acorn and Silk- 
ken Laumann, is tiying to put 
an end to what he calls “poster 
vigilantes” ripping down arts 
and culture ads from lampposts 
and utility poles. 

“Having that one free form 
of print advertising being van¬ 
dalized right now is so frustrat¬ 
ing to promoters,” he said. “Vir¬ 
tually eveiyone that I’ve talked 
to is really up in arms because 
they don’t know what to do.” 

Klausener has started the 
“Stop poster vigilantes” cam¬ 
paign — with the #postervigi- 
lante Twitter hashtag—to raise 
awareness aroimd the import¬ 
ance of print advertising for 
artists. He doesn’t know why 
anyone would vandalize post¬ 
ers, but he said the act ultim¬ 
ately hurts artists who rely on 
multiple mediums to advertise. 

“Anyone who does publicity 
for the arts has a really small 
budget and not a lot of time,” 
added Jillian Keene, media re¬ 
lations for Third Wall Theatre 
Company, which has recently 
seen its own posters ripped off 
poles in the Glebe. “To have 


(posters) just tom down ... is so 
hard on aU of us who are just 
tiying to get the word out. It’s a 
real bummer.” 

Klausener said there’s an 
“imwritten mle” among city 
artists, which is that they do 
not cover up or tear down a 
fellow artist’s poster before the 
advertised event has happened. 

He said he’s hoping to turn 


that unwritten mle into a city 
bylaw. 

With a coahtion of music 
and arts promoters in Ottawa 
and HuU, he’s going to bring 
the issue to city coimcil. 

The city has regulations 
on posting ads to lampposts 
and utility poles, but no mles 
against covering up or tearing 
down the posters of others. 



Bands on board for Westboro 


Forecasters may have predicted 
a prolonged winter, but West- 
fest organizers offered a hope¬ 
ful glimpse of spring Thursday. 

They announced the lineup 
for the free Westboro music fes¬ 
tival on Jime 13-15. 

The big-name headliners 
this year are bluesy Jimo nom¬ 
inee George Leach, Cape Breton 
fiddler Ashley Maclsaac and 
A Tribe Called Red’s blend of 
traditional pow-wow vocals and 
electronic music. 

Smaller acts include The 
PepTides, Ottawa’s colourfully 
costumed and harmonic nine- 
piece band, and the city’s indo- 
electric funk group Fevers. 

The neighbourhood’s centre 



wiU be closed to cars, with local 
food tmcks and merchants tak¬ 
ing over the streets, plus activ¬ 
ities for Idds aU day. 

The festival has come a long 
way since its beginnings 11 
years ago. It started with 5,000 


attendees and exploded to 
100,000 by 2008, said Westfest 
foimder and producer Elaina 
Martin. 

“Artists are coming to us, 
tenfold, and agents are com¬ 
ing to us now, too,” she said. 
“In the early days, 1 had to go 
out, searching. Now they bring 
them to me.” 

Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson 
said Westfest was once con¬ 
sidered a “gamble” for area 
businesses, but it has turned 
into an “amazing success stoiy.” 

“It was a bit of a risk to have 
their main street, Richmond 
Road, close down, but it’s prov¬ 
en, over time, that it’s a mas¬ 
sive net gain.” lucyscholey/metro

D’Arcy McGee’s Pub is paying 
their ovm special tribute. 

“It’s a Sparks Street trad¬ 
ition — you say a pledge, look 
up to parliament lull, take a 
shot and kiss a httle stuffed 
beaver,” said O’ReiUy. Live 
music will be playing all day 
Monday with the Geltic band 
Jiggs Boson starting the party, 
followed by Riverthieves and 
then The Eric O’Eggleston Irish 
Show Band. In the By ward Mar¬

Rick Mercer 

Algonquin students have 
managed to lure Rick Mer¬ 
cer to town for a second 
year in a row after raising 
almost $50,000. 

As the top post second¬ 
ary fundraiser in the 
Spread the Net Gampaign 
to protect against malaria 
the GBG funnyman is 
due to once again visit 
the Gollege’s Ottawa 
campus on Monday, 

March 24. 

Riley Jones is the club 
president and says they 


are really happy with 
their success over the last 
two years. 

“We are super excited,” 
he said. “It feels awe¬ 
some” 

Jones credits the Pie in 
the Face event for raising 
a lot of the money and 
interest. 

“We had a student 
wearing a Maple Leaf jer¬ 
sey, a Montreal Ganadiens 
one and a Sens jersey,” 
Jones said. 

“The Senators did take 
some hits but the Toronto 
Maple Leafs got hit by far 
and away the most. 

“He was really mouthy 
too so he made people 
want to hit him with a pie 
in the face.”

Special Olympics. Floor hockey tourney Ottawa-bound 


The 2015 Special Olympics 
Floor Hockey Championships 
wiU be held in Ottawa. 

Pohce Chief Charles Bordel- 
eau and Jeff Hrmt, the president 
of Ottawa Sports and Entertain¬ 
ment Group, joined Ottawa’s 
floor-hockey team to make the 
announcement Thursday. 

Eric Clement is a forward on 
the local team. He says they are 
optimistic about their chances 
in the competition. 


“It’s exciting, it’s fun,” he 
said. 

“We won the 2012 gold med¬ 
al (championships) in Montreal 
so, yes, we have a chance to go 
quite deep.” 

Kirk De Fazio, director of 
development with Special 
Olympics Ontario, says the an- 
normcement is great news but 
the real benefit is the chance to 
raise awareness of the organiza¬ 
tion. 


“You have the generic Olym¬ 
pics in Sochi, and the Paralym¬ 
pics where there are physical 
limitations,” he said. “And 
then you have the completely 
separate sport organization, 
the world of Special Olympics. 
These athletes have an intellec¬ 
tual disability. They want to be 
valued and included in society. 
This opportunity today puts 
them on stage. It’s their chance 
in the spothght to shine.” 


Melanie Heroux is a special 
Olympian bom with hydro¬ 
cephalus. 

“Doctors were not optimis¬ 
tic of my chances of walking 
or talking or even living,” she 
recounted. 

“1 have been involved in 
Special Olympics since 1 was 15. 
Special Olympics have changed 
my life.... This will bring tre¬ 
mendous awareness to our pro¬ 
grams.” OONA WOODS/FOR METRO 


Before you

Think of the poor roses. 

Local researcher ponders 
whether plants can be 
regarded as intelligent 
ahead of NatureTalks 
discussion on the issue 


In the novel The Day of the 
Triffids, evil, man-eating plants 
take over a post-apocalyptic 
world. But is John Wyndham’s 
fiction rooted in fact? 

A discussion series at the 
Canadian Museum of Nature 
has already tackled the thorny 
issue of Jurassic Park-like DNA 
reanimation and species cross¬ 
breeding, and now it is turning 
its attention to the possibility of 
plant intelligence. 

There are only a few tickets 
left to NatureTalks on March 18 
but a video will be available on¬ 
line at nature.ca following the 
event. 

Paul Sokoloff is taking part 
in the discussion. The botan¬ 
ist and researcher spends his 
time between the museum’s 
Gatineau-based research facil¬ 


ity and the Arctic, where he col¬ 
lects plant species. As a person 
who is passionate about plants, 
he says this topic has him con¬ 
founded. 

“You know what? 1 am stiU 
not sure. 1 think it comes down 
to some pretty big questions,” 
he says. 

“So these are questions like, 
what is intelligence? How do 
you define it? Do you need to 
be conscious and self aware? Or 
just react to stimuli in the en¬ 
vironment?”’ 

Sokoloff says flora in the 
Arctic follow the sun but he is 
not sure if that proves the exist¬ 
ence of plant smarts. 

“Is that a trait that enhan¬ 
ces fitness to survive or is it (an 
example) of reacting to their 
environment in a way that im- 
phes inteUigent behaviour?” he 
asks. 

Of course, it would be in the 
Triffids’ best interest to keep us 
in the dark. 

NatureTalks takes place at 
the Canadian Museum of Na¬ 
ture Tuesday at 7 p.m. Check 
ticket availability at 613-566- 
4791.

Algonquin students to rally for Model UN. Carleton 

supervised iniection site in city SSSSa'SStoSice 


A ‘no-brainer’? An 

addiction specialist 
says the students are 
'wasting their time' 



LUCY 

SCHOLEY 

iucy.schoiey® metronews.ca 


A group of Algonquin College 
students is organizing a rally 
on Parliament Hill to promote 
supervised injection sites. 

Sam Porghavami, a second- 
year social service worker stu¬ 
dent, said it’s a “no-brainer” 
for Ottawa to have a super¬ 
vised injection site. 

The students are partner¬ 
ing with the Campaign for 
Safer Consumption Sites 
(CSCS) in Ottawa to raise 
awareness and pressure city 
councillors to bring in a clean 
and acceptable place for 
people to use drugs under the 
supervision of medical staff. 

“It’s for mostly homeless 
people and the hardcore ad¬ 
dicts,” said Porghavami. “It’s 


just trying to relieve some 
of their misery, really. It also 
puts them in touch with social 
workers and nurses. That’s 
the most important part.” 

According to CSCS, one in 
10 injection drug users are in¬ 
fected with HfV' and six in 10 
have contracted hepatitis C. 
The group claims a supervised 
injection site would prevent 
deaths and reduce the spread 
of these diseases. 

But Dr. Mark Ujjainwalla, 


a physician who recently 
opened Recovery Ottawa, a 
methadone clinic in Vanier, 
said the students are “wast¬ 
ing their time” tiying to get 
a supervised injection site 
underway. 

“These people are treat¬ 
ing infectious disease and 
that’s not really the bigger 
problem,” he said. “The big¬ 
ger problem is addiction and 
if you’re not going to treat 
addiction, then you’re wast¬ 


ing your time. It’s just a Band- 
Aid.” 

Dr. Ujjainwalla said he has 
seen about 450 patients at his 
drug addiction clinic since it 
opened in November. About 
two or three of them are HfV'- 
positive and the vast majority 
has hepatitis C, he said. 

Vancouver opened Can¬ 
ada’s first supervised injec¬ 
tion site in 2003. 

The rally will be March 23 
on Parliament Hill at 1 p.m. 



Carleton University students 
are raising the school’s reputa¬ 
tion on the international stage 
through applied diplomacy. 

The Model United Nations 
(MUN) society at Carleton has 
existed for about 10 years but 
recently it has really exploded. 

“Three years ago it was 
only forty members but now 
it is two himdred,” said Samir 
Kassam, president of Carleton’s 
MUN team. 

Carleton’s team has gone 
to several MUN conferences 
around Canada, hosted by uni¬ 
versities such as McGill and 
Queen’s, as well as internation¬ 


al universities like Harvard and 
University of Pennsylvania. 

This was only Carleton’s 
second time at Canada’s Inter¬ 
national MUN but their per¬ 
formance was outstanding, 
taking home several awards. 
Best Delegate awards went to 
Cole McGinn in the Security 
Cormcil, Victor SeviUa in the 
Economic and Social Council, 
and Hatav Shaileh in the Gen¬ 
eral Assembly. Other student 
award winners included Anais 
Lynn Voski, Patrick Morton, 
Ben Stone, Farida Hassan, Peter 
Macdonald and Michelle Tsang.

More bodies 
pulled from 
N.Y. blast site 


Harlem disaster. Mayor 
hopes to 'find others still 
alive' as rescue workers 
search overnight through 
smouldering wreckage 


Rescuers working amid 
cold, gusty winds and bil¬ 
lowing smoke pulled four 
additional bodies overnight 
from the rubble of two Man¬ 
hattan apartment buildings, 
as the death toll rose Thurs¬ 
day to at least seven from 
a gas leak-triggered explo¬ 
sion that reduced the area 
to a pile of smashed bricks, 
splinters and mangled 
metal. 

The explosion Wednes¬ 
day morning in East Har¬ 
lem injured more than 60 
people, with searchers still 


trying to locate others a day 
later. Mayor Bill de Blasio 
said Thursday that the city 
was “hoping to find others 
still alive” and then “to de¬ 
termine exactly what hap¬ 
pened here.” 

Crews used generator- 
powered floodlights and 
thermal imaging cameras to 
identify heat spots — bod¬ 
ies or pockets of fire — at 
the site. Police guarding 
the scene wore masks and 
neighbourhood residents 
covered faces with scarfs 
amid the thick, acrid air. 

Construction equipment 
with iron jaws picked up the 
smouldering debris, first de¬ 
positing it on the pavement, 
then hoisting it onto trucks 
that hauled it away. The 
debris included structural 
beams, pieces of windows 
and residents’ belongings.

Two dead at SXSW festival after driver plows through crowd 

Bystanders assist first responders in Austin, Texas, early Thursday morning, where a suspected drunk driver barrelled through police barricades and drove 
down a crowded street at the South by Southwest music festival, killing two people and injuring 23 in an act authorities say was intentional. The driver, 
whose name has not been released, faces two counts of capital murder and 23 counts of aggravated assault with a vehicle, colin kerrigan/the associated press 



Malaysia Airlines. Search 
widens for missing plane 


Malaysian authorities ex¬ 
panded their search for a 
missing airplane westward 
toward India on Thursday, 
saying it may have flown for 
several hours after its last 
contact with the ground. 

That scenario would 
make finding the Boeing 
111 a vastly more difficult 
task, and raises the possi¬ 
bility that searchers have 
been looking in the wrong 
place for the plane and its 
239 passengers and crew 


since it disappeared early 
Saturday. 

Search planes were sent 
Thursday to search an area 
off the southern tip of Viet¬ 
nam where Chinese satel¬ 
lite images showed three 
suspected floating objects, 
but they saw only ocean. 

“There is nothing. We 
went there, there is noth¬ 
ing,” said acting Malaysian 
Transport Minister Hisham- 
muddin Hussein.

Crimean referendum prompts West 
to increase threats against Russia 



Crisis in Ukraine. 

Gov't and Western 
allies warn Russia 
against trying to annex 
strategic peninsula 


Russia conducted new militaiy 
manoeuvres near its border 
with Ukraine on Thursday, 
and President Vladimir Putin 
said the world shouldn’t blame 
his country for what he called 
Ukraine’s “internal crisis.” 

In Crimea, where the public 
will vote on Sunday whether 
to break away from Ukraine 
and become part of Russia, 
jittery residents lined up at 
their banks to withdraw cash 
from their accounts amid un¬ 
certainty over the future of 
the peninsula, which Russian 
troops now control. 

U.S. Secretaiy of State John 
Kerry and Russian Foreign Min¬ 
ister Sergey Lavrov plan to meet 


in London on Friday in a last- 
ditch bid to end the standoff 
over the Crimean referendum, 
which Ukraine and the West 
have rejected as illegitimate. 

In Berlin, German Chancel¬ 
lor Angela Merkel sharply criti¬ 
cized Russia, sa 5 dng the territor¬ 
ial integrity of Ukraine carmot 
be compromised. 

Spealdng to Germany’s 
parliament, Merkel said Rus¬ 
sia risks “massive” political and 
economic consequences, if it 
does not enter into “negotia¬ 
tions that achieve results” over 
the situation in Ukraine. 

If Moscow does not begin 
to “de-escalate” the situation, 
Merkel said, the 28 European 
Union nations, the U.S. and 
other allies are prepared to take 
even stronger measures such as 
freezing bank accoimts of Rus¬ 
sians and implementing travel 
restrictions that would hit Rus¬ 
sia economically. 

On Wednesday, Moscow 
rejected the Ukrainian govern¬ 
ment’s claim that a massive 


Russian militaiy buildup near 
the countries’ border was rais¬ 
ing the threat of a possible in¬ 
vasion. 

But on Thursday Russia’s 
Defence Ministiy announced 
that thousands of Russian 
troops in their regions of Ros¬ 


tov, Belgorod, Kursk and Tam¬ 
bov bordering Ulo-aine are in¬ 
volved in the exercises, which 
will continue until the end of 
the month. 

Putin, who has received his 
parliament’s permission to use 
the Russian rnilitaiy in Ukraine, 


has warned that he reserves 
the right to “use all means” 
to protect Russian speakers in 
Ukraine from violent national¬ 
ists, even though there have 
been no signs they are facing 
such a threat.

Canada offers

Ukraine finances 

Foreign Affairs Minister 
John Baird says Canada 
will contribute $220 mil¬ 
lion to an international 
effort to stabilize the fi¬ 
nances of the government 
of Ukraine. 

He says Canada is 
prepared to work with 
the European Union, the 
United States and the 
International Monetary 
Fund to help Ukraine. 

The minister says 
Ukraine seems to have 
enough money to keep 
afloat for a few months, 
giving the international 
community time to work 
out some solutions.

Marijuana job fair 
stokes high level 
of interest in Denver 



Homegrown demand. 

Line of job applicants 
snaked around corner 
as legal pot business 
lights up big profits 


When Tim Cullen was open¬ 
ing his first marijuana business 
four years ago, the high school 
biology teacher-tumed-pot 
entrepreneur struggled to get 
resumes and references from 
job applicants. 

“Eveiyone’s experience was 
on the black market,” Cullen 
said. Now, he said, “it’s come 
out of the closet.” 

Out of the closet, down the 
street and aroimd the comer. 
That’s where the line of hope¬ 
fuls stretched Thursday outside 
a central Denver ofiice building 
that was hosting a marijuana 
industiy job fair. 


Cullen, who owns two retail 
marijuana shops and is a part¬ 
ner in a company that makes 
hash oil and another that 
makes vaporizers, was among 
representatives from about a 
dozen businesses reviewing ap- 
phcations. 

O.penVAPE, CuUen’s vapor¬ 
izers company, organized the 


fair to meet its own growing 
staffing needs and help others 
in the industiy, said company 
spokesman Todd Mitchem. 

Voters in Colorado and 
Washington approved sales of 
marijuana for recreational use 
in 2012, and recreational sales 
began first in Colorado, in Janu- 

aiy. THE ASSOaATED PRESS

Americans spent $55.7B on their fur babies last year 


Millions of pets across Amer¬ 
ica live like little humans 
these days — and as long 
as people treat them that 
way, pet spending should 
keep climbing after a record 
2013, industry spokesman 
Bob Vetere said Thursday. 

Americans spent an all- 
time high of $55.7 billion US 
on their pets in last year and 


spending will creep close to 
$60 billion US this year, the 
president and CEO of the 
American Pet Products As¬ 
sociation told buyers and 
exhibitors at the Global Pet 
Expo in Orlando, Fla. Over¬ 
all pet spending has not 
dipped since record-keeping 
started, according to APPA, 
based in Greenwich, Conn. 


The biggest part of spend¬ 
ing in 2013 — $21.57 billion 
US — went for food — a 
lot of it more expensive, 
healthier grub. The not-for- 
profit trade association has 
been tracking industry fig¬ 
ures since 1996, when total 
pet spending was just $21 
billion US. Adjusted for in¬ 
flation, that’s $31.3 billion 


US. 

The humanization of our 
pets started about 20 years 
ago, Vetere said in a tele¬ 
phone interview. As people 
made pets more import¬ 
ant parts of their families, 
manufacturers introduced 
products that, in the begin¬ 
ning, helped the animals 
make their move from the 


backyard to the front room. 

“What is feeding a large 
part of the growth now are 
the baby boomers who have 
become empty-nesters and 
are looking for some other 
ways to find the love and 
affection they used to get 
from their kids,” Vetere 
said.

THE WORLD ACCORDING TO KEVIN BACON 


1 #whileTwitterwasdown. Twitter went down 
briefly Tuesday, but it felt like an eternity to 
users. By the time it came back, #whileTwitter- 
wasdown was trending with gems like, “1 tried to 
get real people on the street to follow me, but 
they just wouldn’t. Elites probably,” and “I was 
promoted at work, made six friends, and started 
a family.” All I did was write six books, three of 
which were adapted to the big screen.

meeting and kissing for the first time went 
viral, with more than 20 million views. When 
people found out it was actually a fashion film by 
the label Wren, it didn’t really dampen spirits. 

After all, it really was strangers kissing. And the 
vid really was beautiful. Plus, we’re used to prod- 
uct endorsements on everything. 

3 Bachelor finale. The finale had the narcissistic Juan Pablo 
trending for being such a self-serving idiot. Even his parents 
warned Clare and Nikki about him. In the end, he sort of picked 
Nikki. But we all know that the per son Juan Pablo loves the most 
in the world is himself That’s who he should have proposed to: 
Juan Pablo. 

4 Funny or Die. To promote his health-care plan. President 
Obama sat down for an interview with actor Zach Galifi-

House senior communications adviser Tara Mc- 
Guinness tweeted “FunnyorDie.com is the #1

Laughter really is the best medicine. 

S Strombo. Hockey Night in Canada named 
him as their primary host and anchor, taking 
over from Ron MacLean, who will have a dimin¬ 
ished role next year. Lost in the hoopla was the 
announcement Strombo’s terrific show George 
Stroumboulopoulos Tonight will be cancelled at 
season’s end. I will miss it big time. 

6 #AskBaird. Canada’s Foreign Minister John 
Baird hosted a live Twitter chat where you 
could ask him questions. This was refreshing for 
a politician to be this transparent in real time about what Canada 
is doing on the international stage. Baird was self-deprecating, 
saying in one tweet, “suggest trying someone else for cooking & 
fashion tips.” 

7 Kevin Bacon. A YouTube video titled Kevin Explains the ’80s to 
Millennials garnered nearly two million views as a straight- 
faced Bacon tried to explain what the ’80s and its VCRs and para¬ 
chute pants meant. “You want to know my favourite app? Rubik’s 
Cube,” Bacon says. Google that, millennials, to find out what it is.

WEEKEND, March 14-16, 2014 


Synopsis 


Based on the most successful 
racing video game franchise 
ever, Need for Speed is Aaron 
“Breaking Bad” Paul’s first lead 
in a feature. He plays Tobey 
Marshall, a speed-demon 
mechanic, jailed for a crime 
he did not commit. Out of 
prison with revenge against 
adversary Dino Brewster (Dom¬ 
inic Cooper) on his mind, he 
finagles a spot at the De Leon, 
a high-octane underground 
race that makes the Cannonball 
Run look like a Go-Kart sprint. 
You just know it’s only a matter 
of time until someone says, 
“We’ll settle this behind the 
wheel.” Between him and the 
race, however, are miles of hard 
road, bounty hunters and po¬ 
lice. Steve Gow sits in for Mark 
Breslin this week.

SCENE 17 



The cars are the stars 


Need for Speed. Action- 
packed racing tale based 
on a video game not one 
for the intellectual crowd 


Richard: Steve, remember the 
Mazda commercials that were 
on a few years ago? I felt like 
the kid from those ads was sit¬ 
ting on my shoulder whisper¬ 
ing “zoom, zoom” into my ear 
for the entire running time of 
The Hot Wheels Movie, er.... 
Need for Speed. This is a fast 
paced car race movie that zips 
along as quickly as you’d hope 
a movie with the word speed 
in the title would, but charac¬ 
ter wise, it’s not quite as fast 
or furious as you might like. 
The cars are the stars, while 
the characters are largely left 
in the dust. What did you 
think? 


SG: Yes, the way they’re up¬ 
staged by the racing sequen¬ 
ces, the term “vehicular man¬ 
slaughter” could easily apply 
to the actors. Sure, Aaron Pavil 
showed us he had chops in 
Breaking Bad but that only 
makes the choice of playing 
a gravelly-voiced, vengeance¬ 
seeking street car racer aU 
the more curious. After aU, as 
much as Need For Speed tries 
to design depth in its charac¬ 
ters, nobody in the thriller rises 
above conveniently routine. Or 
all that interesting. 

RC: 1 liked the race scenes. They 
feel authentic and by and large 
done by brave speed demon 
stunt drivers without the use 
of CGI. They’re exciting, pedal- 
to-the-metal sequences that 
put the audience in the driver’s 
seat. You have to wonder about 
glorifying the romance of reck¬ 
less street racing, but the movie 


isn’t a commercial for vehicular 
mayhem. There are some wild 
rides, but there are also conse¬ 
quences for many of the driv¬ 
ers and their need for speed. 1 
just wish the characters were 
stronger. It says something 
when the movie’s most inter¬ 
esting character — the eccen¬ 
tric millionaire the Monarch, 
played by Michael Keaton — 
never gets behind the wheel of 
a car. 

SG: He was definitely working 
the same oddball over-the-top 
angles as Nicolas Cage. Imo¬ 
gen Foots (That Awkward Mo¬ 
ment) was appealing enough 
as a British assistant of the 
car’s owner who hitchhikes 
along with Paul for the na¬ 
tionwide ride. However, 1 
couldn’t help thinking how 
contrived the entire plot was. 
Then again, 1 suppose that 
shouldn’t be surprising con¬ 


sidering the stoiy was culled 
from a video game — albeit a 
veiy successful video game. 

RC: Need for Speed isn’t Down- 
ton Abbey. It’s a car crazy story 
where characters take a back¬ 
seat to the action, but if you 
know what a Two Lane Grass¬ 
hopper is, then you’ll probably 
get a kick out of the driving 
scenes. 

SG: This movie definitely isn’t 
for graduates of JuiUiard’s 
drama program. It’s for high- 
octane gearheads who want 
to stuff their faces with over¬ 
buttered popcorn and watch in¬ 
nocent bystanders and cops get 
taken out in the careless (cut 
cunningly choreographed) act 
of illegal street racing. It does a 
fine job there but I’m not sure 
ni remember much else about 
Need for Speed by tomorrow 
morning.

Fulfilling fan dreams — for a price 



Kickstarter craze. 

As the new Veronica 
Mars film hits theatres, 
opinions are mixed 
on the business of 
celebs asking fans to 
finance their projects 


Rob Thomas knew he might 
make movie history by 
using Kickstarter to crowd- 
fund his Veronica Mars film. 
But he wasn’t prepared for 
the posters. 

Of all the prizes offered 
to donors of Veronica Mars 

— eveiything from a digital 
copy of the script for $10 to 
a walk-on cameo for $10,000 

— the most taxing was auto¬ 
graphing the cast-signed post¬ 
ers promised to more than 
5,000 backers. It took several 
hand-cramping days and con¬ 
stant shuttling of boxes from 
one signee to the next. 

“We’ve got our own post¬ 
er handler who is in charge 
of getting them to us and 


getting them signed,” Thom¬ 
as said in a recent interview. 
“It’s required, like, its own 
department.” 

But, he adds, “This movie 
would not exist if we had 


not gone down this path.” 

It’s been a year since 
Thomas sent shock waves 
through the movie industry 
by turning to the crowd¬ 
funding site Kickstarter to 


help finance a movie based 
on his cultishly adored but 
short-lived high-school de¬ 
tective series. Today, the 
movie hits theatres and 
video-on-demand. As the 


Who ponied up $10,000? 


• Steven Dengler. The 
45-year-old Canadian 
entrepreneur and cur¬ 
rency exchange site

up playing a waiter in 
the film. But he also got 
to introduce a viral video 
with James Franco. 


first high-profile celebrity 
project to drum up money 
on Kickstarter, Veronica 
Mars is a trailblazer, albeit 
one with a cloudy legacy. 

Thomas has already been 
followed by projects by Zach 
Braff (to fund his second dir¬ 
ectorial effort) and Spike Lee 
(to raise cash for his latest 
“joint”). The land rush into 
a new avenue of funding 
(a major struggle for most 
filmmakers) has raised ques¬ 
tions about the ethics of fan- 
based financing. (Contribu¬ 
tors pay for different levels 
of rewards, but don’t share 
in profits.) 

Veronica Mars may have 


introduced a democratic 
spirit to a green-lighting pro¬ 
cess usually controlled by 
film executives, but it has 
also opened a Pandora’s box 
where, critics say, established 
insiders can take advantage 
of their loyal followings. 

“It’s a brilliant idea that’s 
gotten out of hand,” House of 
Cards producer Dana Brun- 
etti recently said at a SXSW 
panel discussion. ”lt’s wrong 
when people like Zach Braff 
or Spike Lee use that same 
service to fund their films 
when they already have ac¬ 
cess. 1 think it overshadows 
and takes away from the little 
guys who actually need the 
fonding.“ 

Thomas says he’d rather 
not be considered a poster 
boy for Kickstarter. “Every 
project has its own separate 
concerns,” he says. Instead, 
he believes the choice is up 
to consumers. 

“If it bothers you that 
Zach Braff probably has a lot 
of money from Scrubs,” says 
Thomas, “then don’t give to 
it.”

Are you up for watching Shia in the buff? 



Nymphomaniac. 

One of Metro's intrepid 
reviewers checks out 
the latest from 
Lars von Trier and 
shares what he 
learned about sex 


CHRIS 

ALEXANDER 

scene® metronews.ca 

By now many of you may 
have gotten wind of the latest 
“event” movie from Danish 
enfant terrible Lars von Trier, 
he of the malevolent mind 
bender Antichrist, the Bjork- 
starring anti-musical Dancer 
in the Dark and the lush Mel¬ 
ancholia. 

When von Trier releases a 
film, the cinema world races 
around him in circles, debat¬ 
ing furiously, cheering and 
jeering in equal measure. He 
knows this and clearly loves 
to push boundaries and but¬ 
tons. 

With his latest opus, the 
pornographic masterwork 


Nymphomaniac, the film¬ 
maker doesn’t just push 
boundaries, he decimates 
them. The movie stars von 
Trier’s muse, actress and pop 
star Charlotte Gainsbourg as 
Joe, a self-described sex ad¬ 
dict whose lifelong free-fall 
into carnality has both liber¬ 
ated her and led her to lubri¬ 
cated ruin. 

After dropping jaws all 
over Europe, the five-hour 


Nymphomaniac opens in se¬ 
lect Canadian markets next 
Friday, ready to shake our 
sensibilities with is caval¬ 
cade of extreme and explicit 
couplings. This writer was 
invited to the Toronto press 
screening last week, along 
with most of Hogtown’s 
finest critics. It was an ele¬ 
phantine affair, beginning 
at 9 a.m. and climaxing 
at 2 p.m. and was indeed 


an “event”, complete with 
intermission to provide a 
breather from the non-stop 
emissions. The movie is, of 
course, more than just a 
star-studded sex film and is 
in fact, very edifying. 

Here then, related in as 
family-friendly a fashion as 
possible, are five things 1 
learned while stuffed into 
a sweaty cinema watching 
Nymphomaniac... 


The version we’re getting 
in Canada is cut 

Before the screening, the 
publicist announced that 
Canada will indeed be get¬ 
ting the slightly truncated 
edit of Nymphomaniac, to 
which some critics sneered. 

“Don’t worry,” the smirk¬ 
ing PR assured, “you’ll still 
get plenty of ‘stuff’ to look 
at.” 

Sex is like fly fishing 

The framework of Nympho¬ 
maniac consists of a battered 
Joe relating her salacious life 
story to a kindly bachelor 
(played by von Trier regular 
Stellan Skarsgard) who con¬ 
vincingly draws every one of 
her penetrating anecdotes 
back to the art of fly-fishing, 
complete with beautifully 
shot footage of the hobby 
sport. 

Shia LaBeouf has 
nothing to hide 

He may be marauding 
around Hollywood with 
a bag on his head, but 
troubled Nymphomaniac co- 
star LaBeouf leaves no other 
part of his anatomy to the 


imagination here, dressed as 
he is in nothing more than a 
smile for half the film’s run¬ 
ning time. 

Mini-muffins taste 
great post coitus 

During the intermission 
between Nymphomaniac 
Part One and Part Two, the 
publicist treated us wobbly- 
kneed critics to a spread of 
mini-muffins, juice and cof¬ 
fee. It was odd discussing 
LaBeouf’s beef and Gains¬ 
bourg’s fluid performance 
while huffing down bran, 
but it was all part of the ex¬ 
perience. 

The silent duck 

Unfortunately, 1 cannot elab¬ 
orate on this plot-point, the 
revelation of which stretch¬ 
es more than the imagina¬ 
tion. To learn more, you’ll 
just have to see the film. 

And 1 heartily suggest you 
do see the film. Because the 
beauty of Nymphomaniac 
and all of von Trier’s work is 
that hidden inside its outra¬ 
geous exterior is something 
profound, poetic and deeply 
human.

Here we are still, entertain us 


20 years later. New 

book examines the 
lasting legacy of Kurt 
Cobain and Nirvana 



ALAN 

CROSS 

scene@metronews.ca 


On the afternoon of April 8, 
1994, news came that a body 
had been found in a green¬ 
house behind 171 Lake Wash¬ 
ington Blvd. E. in Seattle. 
The victim had died of a self- 
inflicted gunshot wound to 
the head. 

Twenty years later, we’re 
still fascinated by Kurt Co¬ 
bain, his music and his leg¬ 
acy. Charles R. Cross, author 
of the Cobain biography 
Heavier Than Heaven, tries 
to explain why Kurt and Nir¬ 
vana still matter with a new 
book. Here We Are Now: The 
Lasting Impact of Kurt Co¬ 
bain. 

If you were there, you know 


why Kurt matters. But if 
you weren’t... 

It’s been two decades, so 
virtually almost everyone in 
college today wasn’t alive 
when Kurt was a current 
artist. So the debate does 
spring up. Why does Nirvana 
matter? Who was Kurt? And 
what is it about this music 
that is significant in our 
cultural histoiy? That’s what 
1 attempt to tackle in this 
new book. 

So how do we not sound 
like that grumpy old guy 
who’s always yelling at us 
to get off his lawn? 

Well, you DO sound old! 

But 1 think there’s a great 
nostalgia for that era. Rarely 
am 1 at a show where 1 feel 
that the whole axis of the 
universe is tilting. And that’s 
the way it felt with a lot of 
these Seattle bands in the 
late ’80s and early ’90s. The 
music these men created has 
ramifications that are being 
felt today. 

To look at the impact of 
just Nevermind — an album 
that has sold somewhere 


Nevermind 


“You wonder how many 
people who bought that 
record started a band be¬ 
cause there’s so much of 
the sound of Nin/ana that 
you can hear in the groups 
that followed.” 

Charles R. Cross, author of Here We Are 
Now: The Lasting Impact of Kurt Cobain 

on the influence of Nirvana's Nevermind. 

north of 30 million copies — 
it is truly extraordinary. 

And we can’t just stop with 
music, can we? 

One of the things that 1 
discovered is that grunge is 
now a term within fashion. 

If you go to nordstrom.com 
and type in grunge, you’ll 
find maybe a hundred items 
for sale. The word has had 
a longer life in the fashion 
industry than in the music 
industry. 

Will there ever be another 
Kurt? 



There was something about 
Kurt’s star charisma that we 
haven’t seen in music — and 
in that way, he was like John 
Lennon, Bono and Bruce 
Springsteen. That’s why 1 
think Kurt’s music stands 
above all others in the last 
20 or so years. 


Details 


Here We Are Now: The Last¬ 
ing Impact of Kurt Cobain 
will be out March 18 through

SCENE

Andrea Martin is Working the Engels 



In the brood. Show’s 
family dynamic carries 
over off-screen as star 
nurtures cast, works 
with old SCTV pals 


It seems Andrea Martin’s role 
as an irrepressibly madcap 
matriarch on Working the En¬ 
gels also extends behind the 
scenes. 

The decorated 67-year-old 
SCTV comedian is seated next 
to her new co-star Kacey Rohl, 
and the discussion shifts to 
the third episode of the new 
Global series, which debuted 
Wednesday night. 

It’s an instalment that fea¬ 
tures bits of physical comedy 
both from Martin — who gyr¬ 
ates her way through a hip-hop 
dance routine — and Rohl, 
whose character awkwardly 
navigates a stripper pole. 

Here, Martin grabs hold of 
the conversation. “I can’t be¬ 
lieve I haven’t talked to you 
about that, by the way,” said 


Martin, turning to her co-star. 
“That is such amazing physic¬ 
al comedy you do on that pole. 
It was shot beautifully. It was 
so funny, really — the whole 
episode should be about that.” 

Of course, nurturing na¬ 
ture aside, the seemingly 
dovm-to-earth Martin doesn’t 
share much in common with 
her unhinged, self-obsessed 
Engels counterpart, whose 
dysfunctional, heavily indebt¬ 
ed brood of three children 
is forced to band together to 
save the family’s law firm 
when her husband suddenly 
dies. 

Azura Skye plays divorced, 
recovering pill-popper Sandy, 
Benjamin Arthur portrays 
ex-con ne’er-do-well brother 
Jimmy while Rohl is the put- 
upon family fulcrum — and 
the only one with a law degree. 

An impressive lineup 
of guest stars have already 
filmed appearances, a num¬ 
ber that includes Colin 
Mochrie, Kids in the Hall vet¬ 
eran Scott Thompson, Argo 
actor Victor Garber and Mar¬ 


tin’s old SCTV pals Martin 
Short and Eugene Levy. 

In the case of those last 
two, Martin says the bond she 
still shares with her old com¬ 
edic collaborators allows for a 
comfortable chemistiy. 

“We talk three or four 


times a week, all of us,” she 
said. “It just felt like an exten¬ 
sion of being in somebody’s 
hving room, except there 
were cameras. 

“We both have the same 
work ethic, Marty and I do. 
We all come from the same 


training, so we’re up to im- 
prov any time, but both of us 
are perfectionists. We’re veiy 
methodical about getting the 
scene so it’s right and making 
sense and then being silly.” 

Skye, meanwhile, shrugs 
away Martin’s modesty and 


says it’s “solely a testament” 
to the screen and stage actress 
that such marquee guests 
would support a show that 
“hasn’t even aired yet.” 

Indeed, it’s Martin who 
receives the greatest share of 
her co-stars’ unsolicited, un¬ 
qualified praise. 

“When we showed up on 
set, she created this nice ease 
and simplicity to eveiything,” 
said Arthur, before he and 
Skye commiserated on occa¬ 
sionally wonying that their 
performances were too broad. 

“There definitely have 
been a couple times (where 
I’ve thought) ‘Are we cross¬ 
ing the line into the absurd? 
Are we shpping on banana 
peels?”’ Skye said. “But it 
seems to be rooted in some¬ 
thing veiy grounded and veiy 
real, and once again that is 
Andrea. You watch her stuff 
and it’s veiy much like that. 

“It is on the hilarity end of 
the spectrum but at the same 
time it comes from a veiy real, 
veiy truthful, organic place.”

Someone’s not happy to 
see Dunst and Hedlund’s 
relationship in full Bloom 


Things are getting serious 
between Kirsten Dunst and 
longtime boyfriend Garrett 
Hedlrmd — and that’s appar¬ 
ently a problem for Orlando 
Bloom, who briefly dated his 
Ehzabethtown co-star. “Kirsten 
wants to many Garrett, 
and she was shocked when 
Orlando reached out to her 
and ripped Garrett apart for 
his hard-partying, bad boy 
ways,” a source tells Radar 
Online. “Orlando was basically 
acting like a jealous boyfriend 
even though he hasn’t been 
involved with Kirsten for years, 
and Kirsten called him out on 
it.” Dunst and Hedlund met 
while filming On the Road and 
have been dating steadily since 
2012. “Kirsten’s pals believe 


she’s foimd a real soul mate 
in Garrett, and her work and 
outlook on life have improved 
dramatically since they’ve 
been together,” the source says. 
“They wonder why Orlando is 
trying to spoil her good time.” 
Those pals do at least have 
some theories, though: “Or¬ 
lando is in a bad place in his 
career and has seen roles that 
he wanted slip away to hunky 
younger actors like Garrett,” 
the source offers. “Orlando’s 
meddling, catty behaviour with 
Kirsten and Garrett is likely to 
continue until he has another 
lucky streak in his career. But 
Kirsten isn’t letting anyone get 
between her and Garrett, least 
of all Orlando. She hopes to 
walk down the aisle with him.”

OUR TAKE ON THE WORLD OF CELEBRITIES 


The Word 


Woodleygot 
the OK from 
Lawrencefor 
Divergentrole 

MELINDA 

TAUB 

Metro World News 

In any career, it’s best to 
find yourself a mentor 
when you’re just starting 
out — someone who’s 
been where you are and 
can advise you. 

However, if that career 
is “starring in a block¬ 
buster trilogy based on 
bestselling books about 
a brave young girl thrust 
into a world of dystopian 
violence,” your mentor¬ 
ship options are limited. 
To, oh, one other person. 

Divergent star Shailene 
Woodley didn’t let that 
stop her — she reached 
out to her young-adult- 
adaptation forebear, 
Jennifer Lawrence, before 
agreeing to star in Diver¬ 
gent. ”1 asked Jennifer 
Lawrence, ‘Are you happy 
with your choice to take 
on The Hunger Games?”’ 
Woodley revealed to Teen 
Vogue. “And she said she 
wouldn’t change it for 
the world. She told me, 
‘There are some things 
— don’t make a sex tape, 
don’t do drugs, don’t do 
things in public — that 
you wouldn’t want other 
people judging you for. 



But this is the best deci¬ 
sion you’ll ever make.’” 

That kind of sounds 
like Shailene Wood- 
ley also asked Jennifer 
Lawrence for advice on 
whether to make a sex 
tape. I’m glad Jennifer 
said “Nope.” It sounds 
like Shailene has been 
very discreet, though: She 
says she’s never hooked 
up on set. After the shoot 
wrapped, though? That’s 
different. “Well, that 
might have happened on 
something....” she said. 



Robin plays good father as 
cancelled shows mount up 


Robin Thicke took some 
time out from his tour over 
the weekend and flew to 
Vancouver to spend time 
with estranged wife Paula 
Patton and their son, Jul¬ 
ian, according to E! News. 

The recently separated pair 
seemed in good spirits, laugh¬ 
ing together as Julian played 
at a playground. But maybe 
the trip didn’t go as well 
as Thicke hoped it would. 


Twitter 


as he went on to cancel yet 
another show — this one at 
Ontario’s Gasino Rama — due 
to “unforeseen vocal issues,” 
something that’s plagued 
his tour since his split from 
Patton was announced. But 
he seemed fine Monday night 
in Los Angeles, celebrating 
his 37th birthday alongside 
Leonardo DiGaprio 
and a number of 
male pals.

Even though St. Patrick’s 
Day isn’t until Monday, I’m 
betting many of you will get 
the party started tonight and 
sashay your shillelagh into 
next week. 

Since a quarter of Peter 
Rockwell comes from the 
Emerald Isle, I like a pint of 
green beer as much as the 


next semi-Irish guy. What the 
day really brings home to me 
is the volmne of classic booze 
brands that call Ireland home. 

Think Jameson whiskey, 
Baileys Irish Cream liqueur 
and, for the beer fans, Mur¬ 
phy’s, Harp, and, of comse, 
Guinness. All from a countiy 
that’s just shghtly larger than 


the province of New Bruns¬ 
wick. While you could choose 
any one of those (or a combo 
of a few) to toast St. Paddy, 
the real mover and shaker in 
Ireland is cider. No longer a 
simple summer sipper; the 
cider category has become a 
force to be reckoned with. 

Magners Original Irish 


Cider (500 ml, $3.15 - $4.40) 
balances its apple goodness 
with a crisp, effervescence 
that’s perfect with a celebra- 
toiy serving of lamb stew,

asphyxiation: 

Report 

Media reports say a Can¬ 
adian junior hockey player 
whose body was found in 
Michigan this week died 
from asphyxiation, which 
police beheve to have been 
self-inflicted. 

The reports say autopsy 
results for Teny Trafibrd, 

20, were released Thursday 
— two days after the mis¬ 
sing athlete was found in an 
SUV in the parking lot of a 
Wahnart store in Saginaw 
Township. Trafibrd, who 
played for the Saginaw 
Spirit, had last been seen 
about 9:30 a.m. on March 3.

Mental meltdown 


“It was just one of those games where I think 
maybe we were trying a bit too hard.” 

Canadian head coach Mike Modin, reacting to his team's 3-0 loss. 


Paralympics. Canada 
overpowered by U.S. 
in sledge hockey semi 


There won’t be a hockey 
sweep in Sochi. 

Declan Farmer had two 
goals and an assist Thursday 
as the United States defeated 
Canada 3-0 in the sledge hock¬ 
ey semifinals at the Paralym¬ 
pic Winter Games. 

It’s a bitter pill to swallow 
for the Canadians, who were 
tiying to become the first 
country to win the men’s, 
women’s and sledge hockey 
tournaments at an Olympic 
and Paralympic Games. 

“We were tight. There’s no 
secret that we weren’t mak¬ 
ing crisp, on-the-tape passes. 


and that hurt us. At the same 
time, we had our chances,” 
said Canadian captain Greg 
Westlake. “It seemed like 
we’d have this 10-bell chance 
at their end and then they’d 
come back and the puck 
would end up in our net.” 

Joshua Pauls added a goal 
and an assist for the U.S., 
while Steve Cash made 11 
saves to get the shutout. 

The Americans will face 
Russia in Saturday’s gold- 
medal game at Shayba Arena 
after the hosts defeated Nor¬ 


way 4-0 in Thursday’s other 
semifinal. 

Corbin Watson stopped 
seven shots for Canada, which 
will play Norway for bronze 
on Saturday. 

Gold medallists in 2006, 
Canada was also looking 
to avenge a disappointing 
fourth-place finish on home 
soil in Vancouver in 2010 and 
was perfect through three 
round-robin games, outscor- 
ing the opposition 15-1. 

But on a night where 
nothing seemed to go their 


way, the Canadians failed to 
convert numerous chances 
in front of Cash, a trend that 
started in their 1-0 victory 
over the Czech Republic on 
Tuesday. 

The Americans will play 
for gold for a second straight 
Paralympics after winning the 
tournament four years ago. 

The U.S. was upset by Rus¬ 
sia 2-1 in their final group 
game here to set up the semi¬ 
final against their bitter ri¬ 
vals. 

Canada came in having 
won the 2013 world cham¬ 
pionship and world sledge 
hockey challenge — with 
both victories coming over 
the U.S. — but lost two of 
three exhibition meetings 
with the Americans in the 
lead-up to the Paralympics.

Riders re-sign 
Coach Chamblin 

Corey Chamblin is staying 
put. 

The Grey Cup-champion 
Saskatchewan Roughriders 
signed their head coach 
Thursday to a contract 
extension through the 2017 
season. 

Chamblin was entering 
the final year of the deal he 
signed when he first joined 
the Riders in 2012. Chamb- 
lin, 36, was named the CFL’s 
coach of the year after lead¬ 
ing the Roughriders to an 
11-7 regular-season record 
and eventual Grey Cup title.

TAries 

March 21-April 20 

Because Mars, your ruler, is on 
good form today, something 
will happen that has you 
jumping for joy. Make plans for 
your professional future but 
leave yourself some wiggle 
room in case you want to 
change your mind. 

¥ Taurus 

April 21 - May 21 

Use your imagination today. 
This is a great time for trying 
new things, espedally on the 
work front where, if you show 
you are able to adapt quickly 
to changing a’rcumstances, 
you could be promoted. 

n Gemini 

May 22-June 21 

Your mind may be full of ideas 
but for best results you need 
to focus on the things that will 
be of most benefit to you. No 
matter how many ideas you 
have your energy is limited. 

0 Cancer 

June 22-July 23 

Let the world know what you 
are thinking. Some important 
people will be listening to 
what you have to say today 
and if they like what they hear 
it won't be long before the 
offers start coming in. 

Q Leo 

July 24 -Aug. 23 

Are you promising more than 
you can deliver? Maybe, but 
your confidence is so high at 
the moment that the thought 
of failure does not cross your 
mind, which in turn makes 
success more likely. 

HP Virgo 

Aug. 24 -Sept. 23 

You will be tempted to take a 
risk today and because your 
ruler Mercury is nicely linked to 
Mars, planet of action and 
energy, you may well pull it off.

If you feel the need to brag 
about your success, go ahead. 
It's not often you make noise 
about how well you've done, 
so once in a while it's OK. 

HI Scorpio 

Oct. 24 - Nov. 22 

This is a good day to take care 
of the little things that need 
doing at home and at work. 
Don't set yourself any grand 
targets, just get the small stuff 
done and leave the grand 
design to sort itself out. 

^ Sagittarius 

Nov. 23 - Dec. 21 

You have so many options 
available to you now that it 
may be hard to know where to 
start. For best results you 
should spend as much time as 
possible in sodal situations.

you into doing something you 
don't approve of today, you 
must turn them down flat. Yes, 
you may owe them for favours 
but consdence comes first. 


^ Aquarius 

Jan. 21 - Feb. 19 

With Mercury in your sign 
linked to Mars your mind will 
move fast, so fast in fact that it 
may take a while for the rest of 
you to catch up! Be careful you 
don't exhaust yourself — 
something that can happen to 
your mind and your body. 

K Pisces 

Feb. 20 - March 20 

There are signs that something 
you have dreamed of for 
months is getting closer and 
very soon will be your reality. 
Remember: the more you 
believe that you deserve 
success the quicker success is 
likely to arrive, sallybrompton
