TRANBIT SAFETY 

Councillor says 
cameras could 
catch cars flying 
past streetcars 

A city councillor is urging 
the TTC to use cameras to 
nab drivers who blow past 
open streetcar doors, 

Coun. Mike Layton^ who 
represents Ward 19 (Trinity- 
Spadina), took to Twitter on 
Tuesday to call on the TTC to 
look into the idea, which he 
said would work similarly to 
red-light cameras. 

I nan interview, Layton said 
he became frustrated on his 
walk to work Tuesday mor¬ 
ning when he saw 
a driver speed past 
a stopped streetcar. 

“J think it’s a 
serious problemn” 
he said. “Ask Jiny- 
one getting oflf a 
streetcar whether 
or not they think 


that enough's being done to 
protect theini.'’ 

Under the provincial 
Highway Traffic Actn it’s il¬ 
legal for cyclists or drivers 
to come within two metres 
of streetcar doors while the 
transit vehicle is loading or 
unloading passengers. The 
penalty is a 3J110 fine and 
three demerit points. 

A spokesperson for Toron¬ 
to police couldn’t immedi¬ 
ately provide statistics on 
how' often drivers illegal¬ 
ly pass streetcars. But Sgt. 
Brett Moore of traffic ser¬ 
vices agreed the problem is 
“very prevalent in the city 
of Toronto.” 

According to 'TTC spokes¬ 
person Brad Ross^ staff are 
already studying enforcement 
cameras thanks to a 
motion put forward 
in 2015. 

The proposal 
would likely re¬ 
quire changes to 
provincial legisla¬ 
tion, he added.

paper on Drake's Canadian 
identity that Pope published 
in an academic journal last 
week. 

“1 vcas always a big Drake 
fan. even back when he was 
on Degrassi." said the West¬ 
ern University media studies 
student. 

“1 started analyzing music 
videos during my undergradu¬ 
ate degree and 1 thought it

“1 introduced them to his 
music. One prof w^asn't a fan 
of Hotline Bling. but then 
started sending me all the 
memes." she said, noting 
Western's faculty members 


preferred Drake's hit One

Pope’s research explores 
how racial communities 
claim “ownership" over 
Drake and how the rapper 
projects a Canadian identity 
by using the Toronto name 
and skyline in his videos. 

However. Pope found 


Drake's Canadian side is 
often at odds with his refer¬ 
ences to Memphis (his fath¬ 
er's home town). 

She noted his decision 
to drop the “u" from the 
spelling of his song Worst 
Behavior. 

Pope's paper was published 
Dec. 31. She's already get¬ 
ting praise from friends, but 
hasn't heard from Drake... 
yet. 

“I've had zero interactions 
with him, but maybe one day 
he will see it in the news¬ 
paper." she said laughing. 
“That would be awesome." 


TORONTO'S DEADLY STREETS

An 80-year-old woman is fight¬ 
ing for her life after she was 
hit by a car Tuesday morning 
near St. Lawrence Market. 

According tn police, the col¬ 
lision happened around 7:15 
a.m. near Low'er Sherboume 
Street and The Esplanade. 

The victim was rushed to 
hospital in life-threatening 
condition. No update on her 
health was released. 

Pedestrian safety was a focal 
issue in Toronto in 2016. Police 
siiy 1.95S pedestrians were hit 
last year and by Metro’s tally, 
44 were killed — making it 
the deadliest year on our roads 
since 2002. 

In response to the carnage, 
'Toronto council unanimously 
approved an S80-miHion road 
safety plan last summer. Many 
of the changes contained in the 
plan — from lower speed lim¬ 
its to redesigned intersections 
— will be rolled out this year. 

Sgt. Brett Moore said Tues¬ 
day’s victim was walking her 
dog across Lower Sherboume 
when she was hit by the driver 
of a southbound SUV. The dog 
went missing after the crash, 
but was found safe and sound 
shortly thereafter. 

Police closed the intersec¬ 
tion to investigiite. The driver, 
a SB-yeiir-old woman, remained 
on the scene. No charges hav'e 
been laid.

Toronto's urbtin forest was recently ranked fojrth out of 11 cities around the world by researchers at MIT Ton£TAANCw&&£m/icE file 



URBAN FOREST 


City gets top 
marks for 
trees irom MIT

Metro | Toronto 


When it comes to trees, Toron¬ 
to Es offitially world class, but 
our greenery is under stress, 
according to local environ¬ 
mentalists. 

Heseiirchers at MIT recently 
collEiborated with the World 
btonomic l^omm to map urban 
canopies in 11 cities aniund the 
world. By counting trees using 
Google Street View they meas¬ 
ured the percentage of each 
city‘s area covered by canopy. 

At 19.5 per cent, Toronto 
came in fourth, ahead of Paris, 
London and New York, but 
trailing Vancouvern Geneva 
and Seattle. 



Researchers at MIT counted trees using Google Street View. 

COUELTESy of MiT ££NS£,i^LE CITV UXB 


Carlo RattiH a professor in 
MITs department of urban 
studies, said the goal is to "^start 
a conversation" so cities can 
■'leam from each other." 

A second phase of the pro¬ 


ject will get residents engaged 
by letting them annotate and 
track trees through Google 
Street View. 

While Toronto's highly rated 
canopy is cause fnr celebration, 


environmentalists say there's 
a lot of work to do to keep 
the city's urban forest healthy. 

A June 2016 report by the 
Green Infrastructure Ontario 
Coahticm shows local trees are 
under threat from poor soil 
quality and Invasive pests. 

Janet .VicKayv the coalition's 
chair, is caUing on the province 
to create an urban forest strat¬ 
egy and invest more in “green 
infrastructure." 

“It's really essential in our 
cities. We need it and we have 
really ignored it and taken it 
for granted," she said. 

The urban forest is a “buf¬ 
fer" from the effects of cli¬ 
mate change as it absorbs 
w^ater during flooding, pro¬ 
vides shade during heat waves 
and improves air qualit^^ Mc¬ 
Kay added. 

City parks and recreation 
spokesperson Matthew Cutler 
said the city is committed to 
growing the canopy to 40 per 
cent, despite a 3.4 per cent 
budget cut to the urban for¬ 
estry department.

began compiling their 2017 iippL- 
carion piidtage early last summer. 

In November, in order to have 
a better chance at securing his 
parents a coveted spot in the 
first-come, first-sers'e system, 
he hired a courier to make sure 
the application vs'ould be handr 
delivered to the Immigration 
Depiirtmenf s Mississauga pro¬

as the ofEce opened its door to 
accept applications. 

Then just before Christmiis, 
Immigration, Refugees and Cit¬ 
izenship Canada announced an 
os'erhaui of the intake process for 
the 2017 parent andgmndparent 
sponsorship program. 

Instead of continuing the old 
system that usually saw spots 
run out within cUiys, ofTicials 
have adopted a lottery^ system 
to award the spots and will ran¬

Dodero has iiheady spent $250 
on the mailing fees and another

penses are nonrefundable. 

“We missed the cut last time 
and we planned in advance

She asked people via sociid

"Gut of the gate people were 
saying ‘I love this idea.' It was

“This is going to be a great

Nearly 7,000 
Iraqis killed 


MI DDLE EAST 

2016 casualties 
‘have to be 
considered a 
minimum:’ U\ 

Violence claimetl the lives of ui 
least 6,S7B civilian Iraqis last 
yearH the UniEed Nations siiid 
on MondayK as the Iraqi gov¬ 
ernment stmggles to maintain 
secTirit^^ and to dislodge Daesh 
militants from aietis under their 
tonlnol. 

The UN .Ajjsistance Mission 
ftjr Iraq, known as UNAMI. said 
its numbers “have to be con¬ 
sidered as the absolute min¬ 
imum'" as it has not been able 
to verify casualties among cisal- 
ians in conflict areas, and of 
those vsko lost their lives due 
to “secondary effects of violence 

due to exposure to the ele¬ 
ments, lack of v/ater, food and 
health care.*' 

UN/\MI said in a statement 
that 12,3fiS other civilians w'ere 
wounded in 2016. It added that 


last yeiir figures didn’t include 
casualties among civilians in 
Iraq’s w^estem Anbar province 
for the months of May, July, 
August and December. 

At least 7,S15 civilians vt^ere 
killed in 2015, UNAMI reports. 

The monthly UN casualty re¬ 
port for December 2016 showed 
that a mtalof SB6 civilians Vs^eie 
killed and another 1,066 were 
wounded. The worst affected 
area was the northern province 
ofNinevah, w^here government 
forces itre fighting to retake the 
Daesh-held city of Mosul, with 
208 civilians killed and 511 in¬ 
jured. Baghdad came next with 
1Q9 killed and 523 injured. 

Daesh has claimed respon¬ 
sibility fora string of bombings 
in Baghdad that have killed 
more than 50 people in the 
last week. 

‘Ihe deadliest Daesh attack 
was in July when a massive 
suicide bombing in a bustling 
market area in central Baghdad 
killed almost 300 people, the 
bloodiest single attick in the 
capita] in 13 years of war

UN envoys blasted for party with rebels 


United Nations obsenrers are 
in hot water in Colombia over 
a video showing them dancing 
with leftist rebels while de- 
plnj'ed tn watch over the guer¬ 
rillas as part of a peace deal. 

The short video was shot by 
Spanish news agency EBB from 
inside a jungle camp in north¬ 
ern Coloinbia during a New 
Year’s Eve party. It shows tvi'o 
men wearing blue vests viith 
UN insignia dancing hip-tohip 
with female guerrillas. 

The images, dismissed by 
some as a folkish display of 
Colombians' love for revelry 


in even the most adverse cir¬ 
cumstances, drew sharp rebuke 
from opponents of the peace 
deal between the government 
and the Revolutionary Armed 
Forces of Colombia, 

“ What a joke,” conserv^ative 
lawmaker Maria Fernanda Cabal 
blasted out on Twitter. “How 
can we trust in the UN dele¬ 
gates' impartiality when they 
go partjring with the FAftC^” 
The UN mission in a state¬ 
ment kite Monday said it would 
take appropriate measures. 

“This behaviour doesn’t 
reflect the v^alues of profession¬ 


alism and Impartiality' of the 
mission,'’ it said without iden¬ 
tifying the officials by name. 

part of a peace deal mti- 
fied last month hundreds of 
UN-sponsored observers, most¬ 
ly from Latin America, are be¬ 
ing deployed across the coun¬ 
try to 20-plus camps where 
guerrillas will soon turn over 
their weapons. 

The UN mission is charged 
with receiving the weapons 
and providing periodic reports 
on the two sides' adherence to 
the peace deal.

U.;5. CONGRESS 

Republicans drop plans to gut 
ethics board after Trump tweet 


The new GOP era in Washington 
got off to a messy start ■]'uE^iday as 
House Republicans, under pres¬ 
sure horn Eiesident-elect Donald 
Trump, abruptly dropped plans 
to gut an independent congres¬ 
sional ethics bnard. 

The dizzying about-face came 
as lawmakers convened for the 
first day of the 115th Congress, 
an occasion normally reserved 
for pomp and ceremony under 
the Cipitol Dome. Instead House 
Republicrms' found themseh'es 
under attack not only from 


Demotcals, but from theii' new 
president, over their secretive 
move Monday to neuter the in¬ 
dependent Office of Congres¬ 
sional Ethics and place it under 
lawmakers’ control. 

GOP leaders scrambled to 
contiiin the damage, and within 
hours of Trump registering his 
criticism on Twitter, they called 
an emergency meeting where 
House Republicans voted without 
opposition to undo the change. 

The episode, coming even 
before the new Co-ngress was 


convened and lawmakers were 
sworn in, was a powerful iUns- 
trationof the sway Trump may 
hold over his parly'. 

“With all thiit Congress has 
to work on, do they' really have 
to make the weakening of the 
Independent Ethics Watchdog, 
as unfair as it may be, their num¬ 
ber one act and priority'," Trump 
had asked over Twitter Tuesday 
morning. Trump, said the focus 
should be on tax reform and 
health care.

URBAN ETIQUETTE ELLEN VANSTONE 



Dear Ellen, 

I sonnetimes take people to 
lunch, and they aJways thank 
me. Some of my lunch guests 
follow up with '^thank you^ 
emai Is afterwards, which I 
find excessive. Am I sup¬ 
posed to email back and say 
■'you're welcome"? 

I also have a question 
about dinner parties. The day 
after 1 attend one, another 
guest will inevitably send 
a thank you note and copy 
everyone on the guest list 
This sets off a lorvg thread of 
thank yous, which I find very 
distracting and time-consum¬ 
ing, but I don't want to appear 
rude. What is the etiquette 
here? 

Exhausted by emails 

Dear Exhausted, 

J think we're all exhausted 
by emails at this point. Un- 
fortunately^ some people don’t 
know when to quit when 
they get into an email spiral 
of thanking hosts, tomph- 
menting each other, or atais- 
ingii presidenlial canditLiEe of 
not using the right server. (I 
note with interest, by the way, 
that no one seems lo give a 
smiling poop about Hilliiiy’s 
emails anymore. I guess they 
didn't tiEiilly endanger the re¬ 
public after all. Oh Well!) 

Bui when it comes to thank¬ 
ing someone for a meal, I have 
to stiy that 1 do approve of 
sending a forma! email after¬ 
wards. If yoLir guest sends yon 
a quick ‘'thanks for lunth’' 
email, you don’t have to re¬ 
spond, but an equally quick 

Group email rituals 
sometimes turn 
into a competitive 
sport as everyone 
piles on with 
geysers of gushing 
gratitude. 


THE QUESTION 

When a dinner guest 
sends a 'thank you' email 
and copies everyone 
on the list, how am I 
expected to respond? 



YOO! 

o' 







lov. 

THAU* 


"my pleaburtfl" would not go 
amiss. 

^\s fO'ra liilf-blovvn dinner 
parry, if you’ve been to one, 
you must follow up Mth a 
Lhiirik you phone cuU or note 
regardless of emaiJehain fuiz- 
arcls from other over-exuber¬ 
ant gtiests. 

In the olden diiys, the day- 
after phone tall was mote 
tommon. And for some of us 
hosts, that day-long marathon 
of dinner-dissetling tonvecs;!- 
tions Vi^ds as pleasurable as the 
dinner party itself (sometimes 
even more so, truth be told). 

As a host, Tve also been the 
delighted recipient of hand¬ 
written cards sent by post, :ind 
even, on occasion, a flower 
dehveiy. 


Any of those approaches are 
stiU acceptable, but an email is 
idso fine. Just be sure to take a 
few minutes to write a proper 
message with a compliment 
or two about the home, or 
food, or guest list, which is the 
least you can do after someone 
has slaved over a hot stove, 
or credit ciuci, opened their 
home and lavished a ftee meal 
on you. 

Regarding the post-dinnet- 
party endless-email thread, 
believe me, I know how an¬ 
noying it can be. /\s a writer 
with numerous writer liiends, 

I 've been subjected to group 
email rituals that sometimes 
null into a competitive spoit 
as eveiyoiie piles on with gey^ 
sets of gushing gratitude, witty 


retorts, double entendres, and 
joeukur insults, veiled or other^ 
^vise. 

If rm not ill the mood for 
all thase shenanigans, I just 
send a sepame, private email 
to the hO(St[s), and igiioie the 
endless email chain from 
eveiyone else. But I'd never 
tell anyone not to indulge — if 
you are Sn the mood, if s ftm to 
keep the dinner party conver- 
sation going, And don't fot^jet 
the host on the receiving eivd, 
The endless email chain is a 
ultimately testament to them, 
and they deserve evety woi'd

MOCHAMA 

Temporary foreign 
workers need same 
rights as citizens 


They cook for us. They take 
car e of our children. They 
pick the food that fills our 
Idldiens. 

Yet Canada's temporary 
foreign workers are required 
to stay that way — tempor¬ 
ary — no matter how much 
they contribule or for how 
long they seR^e this coun¬ 
try. Currently, it's a state of 
afiairs that is ripe for abuse. 
The workers’ rights are often 
curtailed because of their 
singular place in our system 
of labour and immigration. 
j'Mjiise is far too prevalent. 

Under the temporary for¬ 
eign worker visa program, 
workers have little recourse to 
hold their empiojrers account¬ 
able. The program precludes 
them from most employment 
standards laws: they cannot 
ask for breaks at work, they 
do not get holiday's and are 
not paid for overtime. 

For women, especially, the 
lack of protection is a dear 
and present danger, in 2Qi5, 
a Mexican woman won a 
human rights tribunal case 
against Presteve Foods after 
enduring sexual harassment, 
solicitation and discrimina¬ 
tion from her empJo;yer. An¬ 
other Woman was, according 
to CBC News, sent back to 
Mexico for refusing the same 
employer. 

Rjr migrant workers, the 
penalties are also financial. In 
Leamington, Ont., three men 
extorted money from work¬ 
ers by charging them a series 
of fees for accommodation, 
travel and procuring the work 
visas. The fees were in the

Lee follows the migrants and 
their supporters as they work 
to put together a case against 
their extortionists. 

Foreign workers have one 
more extottionisi to worry 
about: the government of 
Canadii. They are required to 
pay into Employment Insur¬ 
ance; howevec, they are not 
eligible to receive EL When 
tirmworkers are laid oft'at 
the end of each season, they 
do not receive any of El’s 
benefits or even a refund. 

The problem is in the na¬ 
ture of the program. Defin¬ 
ing whole groups of people as 
‘‘temporary" makes them sus¬ 
ceptible to these abuses. The 
federal goverrunent recently 
took a positive step by elim- 
inatiiig the ‘'four-in, four-out" 
rule, which required foreign 
workers to leave or not work

RECIPE 

Meals to help 
you eat well 
and feel well 

This time of year is full of list- 
icles and slide shovk's painting 
out “superfoods" that people 
should be eating for a hap¬ 
pier neixf year. A quick Google 
search for “foods that make 
you happy** yielded 13.5 mil¬ 
lion results ranging from raw 
nuts to kale and spinach to 
chocolate. 

The foods listed are usual¬ 
ly chosen fur being high in 
a vitamins mineral or amino 
acid that's vital for the body 
to function, though v/hether 
food alone can boost a per¬ 
son's mood hasn't been defin¬ 
itively proven in clinical stud¬ 
ies. Hecks If kale alone could 
boost our moods w’e would all 
be chugging kiile juice after 
the disastrous events of 2016. 

“food is complex and thiit's 
often fc)rgotten.'' says Timothy 
Caul fie Ids professor and re¬ 
search director at the Univer¬ 
sity of Alberta's Health Law 
Institute, “food Is made up of 
a ton of chemicals and that 
makes it tough to make defin¬ 
itive statements about foods 
producing a particular mood 
that's good or bad." 

Stilk Caulfield points out 
numerous studies done around 
the w^orld that associate a 
healthier, balanced diet vi^ith 
a better mood — especially 
when that balanced diet also 
sati sfies hunger (We all know 
from personal experience the 
idea of “tuingry." a portman¬ 
teau of hungry and angry').

Here 
itre three 
recipes to 
help you 
eat well — 
and feel w'ell 

— in 2017. 

Hotpot For 

One 

Makes one 
serving 
“If you are 
hungry you 
may have less 
concentration 
and get more angry 
easily" writes profes¬ 
sor at U of Ts department 
of Nutritional Sciences and 
Medicine David Jenkins in an 
email. 

So how do you keep yourself 
fill] and rocusetf? 

Health Canada recommends 
filling half of your plate with 
veggies at dinnertime as a good 
guideline to ensure a balanced 
meal rich in nutrients and 
fibre, which keeps the stom¬ 
ach feeling satiated and your 
digestive sj'stem happy. 

This wanning bowl of veg¬ 
gies, tofu and bnckw'heat nno- 
dles in a spiced vegetable broth 
should help keep your stomach 

— and mind — happy. 

Ingredients: 

• 2 cups (500 ml) vegetable 
broth, plus more to boil 
vegetables 

• 1/4 tsp (1 ml) soy sauce, or 
to taste 

• 1/4 cup [60 ml) thinly 
sliced carrot 

• 1 handfiil watercress 

• 2 button mushrooms, thin¬ 
ly sliced 

• 5 oz (140 g) extra firm tofu

• 3-1/4 oz (90 g) 
soba noodles 
or your soup 
noodle of 
choice 



Directions: 

1 . in a 
medium 
saucepan, 
bring vegetable 
broth to a boil. Add 
soy sauce. Add carrots, 
watercress, mushrooms 
and tofii. Add more broth if

'^BALANCED DIET 

Numerous studies 
show North Americans 
eat too much sallj and 
not enough potassium. 
One banana has 422mg 
of potassium — that's 
9 per cent of the 
amount needed 
per day. 


I f 
you've 
overloaded on 
salt}' turkey and ham over 
the holidays, your 
taste buds might 
crave something 
more acidic and 
bright such as 
zesty citrus 
fruits. Ear¬ 
ly explorers 
went through 
the same thing, 
although their 
situation was a 
little more extreme: 
their bodies were deprived 
of vitamin C after sustaining 
on nothing but dried meats, 
and they were suffering from 
scur^'y. 

Though scur^fy is rare these 
daj's, a brightly coloured sakid 

— with lots of tesnire. healthy 
fats, lean protein and tart acids 

— may help you feel more bal¬ 
anced. It also helps that we like 
to eat with our eyes and are 
drawn to colourful plates rath¬ 
er than a bowl of grey mush. 



Ingredienla: 

* 4 oz (115 g) boneless, skin¬ 
less chicken breast diced 
into 1-cm cubes 

* Salt and pepper, to taste 

* 2 cups (500 ml) chopped 
green leaf lettuce or lettuce 
of your choice 

* 1 hard-boiled egg. chopped 

* 1/2 avocado, seeded, peeled 
and diced 

* 1/2 cup (125 mL) peeled 
and diced beet 

* 1/2 orange, cut into seg¬ 
ments with seeds, skin, pith 
and membranes removed 

* Olive oil, to taste 

* halsamic vinegar, to taste 

Directions: 

1 . in an unoiled skillet over 
medium high heat, saute 
chicken until fully cooked 
and browned. Season viith 
salt and pepper to taste. Set 
aside. 

3l In a salad bowl, sprinkle 
chopped lettuce on bottom 
to form an even bed. Top 
with lines of chopped egg, 
avocado, beet, orange and 
cooked chicken. Drizzle wnth 


Th i s olive oil and balsamic \in- 
take egar to taste. Serve immedi- 
o n ately. 
the 

clas- Hot ChocolaAe Coffee 

s i c Makes one serving 
cob The placebo effect of com fort 
adds food comes down to one thing: 

nostalgia. Caulfield says we as¬ 
sociate certain food with mem¬ 
ories — think chocolate with 
childhood birthday cake—and 
that's one reason why a square 
of the dark stuff ciin put a sniHe 
on ycjur face, as it reminds us of 
all the good times experienced 
when chocolate was around. 

The same logic applies to 
other comfort foods such as 
pizza, mac and cheese, cake 
— foods that people are more 
likely to have when they were 
children or during celebrations. 

A dash of cocoa powder in 
your morning coffee might just 
hearken vou back to snow days

on your morning commute. 


Ingredients; 

* 1-1/2 cups (375 mL) freshly 
brewed hot coffee 

* 1 tbsp (45 mL) unsweet¬ 
ened cocoa powder 

* 1 tbsp (45 mL) granulated 
sugar 

* 1 tbsp (45 mL) milk or 
cream 

DirecticMia: 

1 . fill a large mug or pot 
with coffee and stir in cocoa 
powder, sugar and milk. If 
coffee isn't hot enough to 
completely dissolve cocoa 
powder, whisk everything 
together in a small saucepan 
over low heat.

mittedly, I've yet to sample. Yeah, 
you read that right. 

Its body brings new style to 
a staid segment. Resembling a 
pumped-up 200 sedan, this mini- 
van's bodywork has a sculptural 
elegance to iti a breadbox on 
w^heels it most certainly is not. 

Smoothly flo-vring lines fill 
this van's interior as well. Most 
of the Pacifica's cabin is made 
of hard plastic, but the graining 
is upscale and everything well 
built. No obvious fit-and-finish 


anomalies were spritled in my 
test model. 

Pop open a sliding bin on the 
dashboard or centre console and 
they roll like they're on ball¬ 
bearing slides'; their motion is 
eerily fiiction free, something 
that exudes quality^ 

The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica is 
built on an aJl-newr architecture 
that’s supposedly the stiffest tmd 
lightest in its tktss, attributes 
that contribute to the reduced 
intrusion of noise and hitrshnesa. 
While in motion, there are uo 
jiggles or rattles to cheapen the 
experience. Ever^nhing is tight 
and solidly built; you can teH the 
people who screw it together in 
Windsor, Ont., ready care. 

Chty^ler's ingenious Stow 'n 
Go second-n>w seats remain and 
are still a marvel of mechanical 
engineering, folding, tumbling 
and diopptrtg into the floor with 
the simple pull of a strap. ^\Tien 
people aren't on your manifest, 
the Pacifica offers nearly 3,993 
litres of interior volume. 

In their upright and locked 
position, those second-row seats 
are extremely comfortable, offer¬ 
ing plenty of knee and beadmom 
svitha lower cushion that's nicety 
elevrated off the floor. 

The Pacifica Is motivated by 
a fiimlliiir friend, fCA's veisatlle 
and refined 3.6-lttre Itntiistiir 
V6. As smoothrmnning as ever, 
it spoils a luft of enhancements 
for 2017 including twostage vari¬ 
able valve lift and cooletl exhaust- 
gas recirculation. A nine-speed 
automatic Is the only transmis¬ 
sion offered but don't worry, it's 
smooth and speedy, swapping 
ratios without any fuss, Vi'hich 
is exactly the way it's supposed 
to function.

RANDOM 

Pair of Obama’s 
chairs can 
be yours 

In what might be the most 
random slightly automotive- 
related thing to ever pop 
up in our inboxes, a pair of 
chairs from U.S. President 
Barack Obama's campaign 
motorcade are up for auc¬ 
tion. The two chairs were per¬ 
sonally used by the President 
during the 2CiOS presidential 
campaign and are expected 
to be sold for upwards of 
$6,000, The two chairs are 
embroidered with Obama's 
campaign logo, are pillow 
cushioned, and set on cir¬ 
cular wooden swivel bases. 
“Obama's world essentially 
revolved around these two 
chairs."' says a letter from Pre¬ 
miere Transportation, the 
company that rented the 
motorcade vehicles to the 
Obama Campaign. The fetter 
goes on to say that President 
Obama conducted major 
campaign business from 
these chairs, and even took 
naps in them from time to 

time. JODI LAI/AUTOGU^DECOM

Leafs blow 
another third- 
period lead in 
loss to Capitals 

TUESDAY in DlC. 


Alex. Ovechkin stored 22 
setond-i into overtime and 
the Washington Capitals ral¬ 
lied to beat the Maple Leafs 
6-5 OQ Tuesday night and end 
Toronto*5 winniog streak at 
five. 

Ovechkin's tSthgoai of the 
season came after the Capitals 
erased multiple deficits to 
v(?in their third in a row. The 
Russian superstar moved to 
within fi%'e points of 1,000 
for his career. 

Justin Williams had a goal 
and tw^o assists, and TJ. Oshie, 
Ev'geny KuznetsoVn Dmitry 
Orlov and John Carlson also 
stored for Washington. Phil¬ 
ipp Grubauer made 15 saves 
in relief of Braden Holtby, 
Mfho was pulled after allowing 
three goals on eight shots. 

Nazem Kadri, Connor 
Brown, Prederik Gauthier, leo 
Komarov and Mitch Marner 
scored for the Maple Leafs. 
Fiedeiik Andersen miide 23 
saves. 

Maple Leafs coach Mike 
Babcock expected the Cap¬ 


itals' best jab after a punchless 
effort the last time the teams 
met in Toronto in November. 
Williams struck first with his 
10th goal of the season just 
1:14 in, and Washington had 
the game's first five shots. 


There was no shortage of 
back-and-forth action or scor¬ 
ing the rest of the first period 
with Maple Leafs goals from 
Kadri^ Brown and Gauthier 
sandwiched around Oshie's 
12th of the season. The start 


of the second period brought 
a goaltending switch as Cap¬ 
itals coach Barry Trotz pulled 
Holtby for Gmbauer. 

That didn't slow Toronto, 
which broke through twice 
against Washington's pen-

The 29-year-old reliever

WORLD JUNIORS 

Canada 
coach: 
Pressure’s 
on Sweden 

Canadian coach Dominique 
Ducharme wants to see what 
Sw^eden is made of 
The Swedes didn't see much 
adversitj,^ as they rolled off five 
straight wins to start the world 
junior hockey championship, 
iind Canada will be their big¬ 
gest test yet when they meet 
in a semifinal on Wednesdiiy 
night Montreal. 

“It's one game and we'll be 
ready for it," Ducharme said 
Tuesday. "We 
can beat them. 

“1‘hey're a 
good team. 

The^r showed 
in the last 
10 years that 
they're really 
good in the 
first round 
but they have 
[found) ways 
to lose when 
things get 
tougher and we want to make 
it tough on them. We'll see how 
they react to pressure." 

'the winner advances to 
Thursday's final against either 
Russia or the United States at 
the Bell Centre. 

The Swedes have emerged as 
a favourite with a highly skilled 
team led by a top line with Alex¬ 
ander Nylander and Joel Eriks¬ 
son Ek, who both stalled the 
season in the NHL along with 
gritty Carl Grundstrom. 

But being good hasn't al- 
wa>'s translatt^ into gold for 
the blue and gold. This year, 
thej^ extended their streak to 
40 straight wins in group stage 
games at the world juniors — 
10 perfect 4-0 records in a row. 
But they have only one gold 
medid in 2012 to show for it. 
They settled for four silvers o\'er 
thiit span and finished out of 
the medals the List two years.
