Elite athletes to paddle board from Vancouver to Victoria for men’s health – BC

Eleven elite athletes plan to traverse the waters between Vancouver and Victoria on paddle boards this week to draw attention to men’s health.

The Stand Up Paddle for Men’s Health kicks off Thursday morning at 5 a.m. from First Beach, arriving in Victoria on Saturday night.

Leading the group of paddle boarders will be four-time Canadian Olympian Simon Whitfield.

He hopes the trip across the Georgia Strait will make men think about the small changes they can make to live healthier.

“I’ve definitely seen it in my life, when my Dad addressed his health, the happiness followed,” says Whitfield.

The paddle is being organized by the Canadian Men’s Health Foundation, a national non-profit organization founded by Dr. Larry Goldenberg, targeting men between 30 and 50.

Whitfield says he was surprised to learn there wasn’t already a foundation focusing on the health of Canadian men.

“When you look into the issues, the campaign is very effective.”

The paddle between the Mainland and Vancouver Island is 140 kilometres and will take three days. It takes approximately 600 paddles to travel one kilometre, but Whitfield says it’s not a race.

“We will be going about 8-10 km/h, which is much faster than a traditional paddle board,” says Whitfield.

“It’s not about being the fastest or the first, but it’s about the fraternity of doing things together, and the idea that men’s health is an issue the community should take on together,” says Whitfield.

He says the group is in good company, with Lina Augaitis, a world champion stand-up paddle boarder, along for the trip.

Some of Augaitis’ paddle boarding achievements include paddle boarding around the Hawaiian Islands, and from Whitehorse to Dawson on the Yukon River, a distance of 750 km.

She is one of two women on the trip, something Whitfield says is important.

“Women play an important role in men’s health issues, in terms of support and counsel,” he says.

Whitfield says he’s the least experienced paddle boarder of the group, having only picked up the sport last September. But he says he’s prepared.

“I’ll have my coffee grinder and bodum on the support boat, and lots of sea-salted popcorn to snack on,” says Whitfield.

The group plans to be on the water 12 hours the first day, and eight hours each day on the second and third days, contingent on good weather. They will be camping along the way on the Gulf Islands.

According to the Canadian Men’s Health Foundation men are 79 per cent more likely to die from heart disease, and 57 per cent more likely to die from diabetes than women. In addition, men are 24 per cent less likely than women to have visited a doctor in the past year.

Canadian Men’s Health week runs from June 9 – June 15 (Father’s Day).

Northern Gateway: Why environmentalists believe it’s not worth the risk

TORONTO – With the proposed Northern Gateway Project one step closer to becoming a reality, some may be left wondering about the potential environmental impact.

The twin pipeline, travelling 1,177 km across Alberta and British Columbia, will transport bitumen, a thick form of oil that needs to be diluted with light petroleum oil. It comes from Alberta’s oil sands. When it is diluted, it is called dilbit.

This dilbit will end up in a terminal in Kitimat, B.C., and will then be loaded onto tankers that will travel the Douglas Channel, eventually heading out to the Pacific Ocean, and, its advocates say, open up the Canadian market.

But many scientists and environmentalists are afraid of what an oil spill could mean to the environment.

On May 26, 250 Canadian scientists – as well as some from around the world including the United States, Switzerland, and Australia – signed a letter to Prime Minister Stephen Harper urging him to reject the Joint Review Panel’s assessment of the Northern Gateway Project. The 12-page letter cited a concern over the perceived “flawed analysis of the risks and benefits to British Columbia’s environment and society.”

One of their concerns was the failure by the panel to conduct external reviews.

It’s this lack of external review that has led the group called Concerned Professional Engineers, located in British Columbia, to publish a white paper in March detailing its concerns over the risk of  an oil spill.

Both groups seriously question whether or not the economic benefits are worth the risk to the environment should something go wrong.

Dinara Willington, vice president of research at the Canadian Energy Research Institute, has studied the economic benefits of the Northern Gateway Project. Her study examined at length the economic benefits.

“More than half of GDP impact will occur in British Columbia –$4.7 billion,” Dinara told Global News.

But for many people in that province, that isn’t worth the risk. There has been some debate as to whether or not dilbit will sink or float if it spills. If it floats, it’s easier to clean.

“Once oil spills, it’s other damages that can occur other than it sinking,” Merv Fingas, an independent environmental consultant told Global News.

Selling Northern Gateway pipeline to a skeptical province




“It might sink in fresh water, but not typically in salt water,” Fingas said. “However, if it interacts with particles and other heavier materials it could sink in salt water,” Fingas said. The particles could include clay or other minerals.

Andrew Weaver, the Green Party MLA for Oak Bay-Gordon Head, B.C., said that if dilbit were to spill in salt water that had suspended particles, it would be of great concern to the environment.

“What happens there is it either sinks or creates tar balls,” he told Global News. “What we know is that in many of these coastal waters, particularly where we are in Fraser River…there is no shortage of suspended sediments in the actual water column.”

Weaver pointed to an Enbridge pipeline that ruptured in Kalamazoo, Michigan in 2010, spilling 3.3 million litres of oil into the Kalamazoo River. The bitumen sank and efforts to clean it have lasted more than three years.

Fingas said that the effects of an oil spill would be just as devastating as other oil spills. “I think the unknown characteristics of this have led a lot of people to be sort of confused about what might happen. It seems as though this is extraordinary, but it’s just the same.”

WATCH: Northern Gateway decision: Can public opinion be turned around?

Depending on nature

Weaver believes that British Columbians, known for their eco-tourism, have spoken loudly about their concerns. It’s not just the wildlife, but the coastal waters – where people live, where people depend on nature – that concerns him most.

“We have a company that’s decided that it wants to ship diluted bitumen, despite the fact that virtually every First Nation in the area, the people of Kitimat, who are at the terminus of this, and something of the order of 80 per cent of British Columbians, including the present government, including the official opposition, and the B.C. Green Party, all of us have said no,” Weaver said.

“What about no, do you not get?”

Northern Gateway has been challenged by First Nations groups and Kitimat residents. Some of the concerns include impacts the pipeline would have on wildlife across both Alberta and B.C.

And if there were to be an oil spill, there is the concern about how one would clean up it up.

In an emailed response from Environment Canada, spokesperson Mark Johnson said, should an oil spill occur, “All available countermeasures to respond…will be evaluated with the objective of achieving the best possible benefit for the environment.

“Only dispersants that provide a net environmental benefit would be approved.”

But the argument from environmentalists is that the risk of an oil spill just isn’t worth it.

“Nobody wants oil tankers in our coastal waters,” Weaver said.

“It’s a disaster waiting to happen.”

‘Wynne has gone beyond the pale’: Ex-NDP chief fires back at Liberal leader – Toronto

TORONTO – Former federal NDP leader Ed Broadbent fired back at Kathleen Wynne in a statement Monday after Wynne had sought to differentiate her Ontario NDP rival Andrea Horwath from such legends of the left as Broadbent or the late Jack Layton.

“Partisan debate is one thing, but by invoking my name in weekend speeches and articles to attack Andrea Horwath and the Ontario NDP, Kathleen Wynne has gone beyond the pale,” Broadbent said in the statement.

“Let no one doubt: I fully support Andrea Horwath and the Ontario NDP.”

Wynne appealed to stalwart NDP voters in a speech over the weekend telling them that a vote for the NDP on Thursday will only help Tim Hudak become premier.

“That is how far the NDP has fallen – it’s not the party that it was,” Wynne said. “It’s not the party of Jack Layton. It’s not the party of Ed Broadbent. It’s not the party of Stephen Lewis.”

The Liberals also launched an ad echoing Wynne, entitled “Vote Horwath – Elect Hudak.”

Horwath has also come under fire from left-wing stalwarts for her more populist policies in this election.

Las Vegas shooting suspects had white supremacist ideology: police – National

Watch above: A shooting in Las Vegas on Sunday, that left two police officers dead, doesn’t fit the pattern of other U.S. shooting incidents. Robin Stickley explains.

LAS VEGAS – Las Vegas police said Monday that the two suspects in the shooting deaths of two officers had ideology that was along the lines of “militia and white supremacists.”

Police are also looking into whether Jerad Miller and his wife, Amanda had been at Cliven Bundy’s Nevada ranch during a standoff with government agents earlier this year.

Bundy, who rejects the authority of the federal government, got into a high-profile showdown with U.S. officials who say he owes more than $1 million in fees and penalties for grazing his cattle on government land. Hundreds of supporters, some of them armed, went to the ranch to support Bundy.

Assistant Sheriff Kevin McMahill said the two suspects believed that law enforcement was the “oppressor.”

McMahill said the shootings were an isolated act and officers were still looking for a motive.

The two officers were having lunch at a strip mall pizza buffet when the Millers fatally shot them at point-blank range in an ambush. The suspects then fled to a nearby Wal-Mart, where they killed a third person and then themselves in an apparent suicide pact, authorities said.

The attack at a CiCi’s Pizza restaurant killed Officers Alyn Beck, 41, and Igor Soldo, 31, who are both husbands and fathers. Jerad Miller yelled, “This is a revolution!” McMahill said.

McMahill said at a news conference Monday that both suspects fired multiple shots into Beck. They then placed a note, a yellow “Don’t tread on me” flag and a swastika on the officers’ bodies.

The deadly rampage in the aging shopping centre about 5 miles (8 kilometres) northeast of the Las Vegas Strip took place in a matter of minutes.

Police were called at 11:22 a.m. to the pizzeria. Shots were reported five minutes later at a nearby Wal-Mart, where the shooters gunned down 31-year-old Joseph Wilcox of Las Vegas just inside the front door and exchanged gunfire with police before killing themselves, authorities and the Clark County coroner’s office said.

Ontario election: Polls suggest tight race with just days left in campaign – Toronto

TORONTO – The Ontario Liberal party has a slight lead in the polls with just days to go before the 2014 Ontario election.

An aggregation of polls done by the Laurier Institute for the Study of Public Opinion and Policy suggests the Liberals could pick up 48 seats, the Progressive Conservatives 41 and the NDP 18.

That would mean results almost identical to 2011’s, with a minority Liberal government and no party losing or gaining more than five seats.

But when it comes to the popular vote it’s a tight race. The Liberals have a two-point lead in popular vote, one point less than a previous aggregation released on June 5.

Barry Kay, a professor at Wilfrid Laurier University used polls from May 28 to June 6 and a sample of roughly 5,000 respondents to formulate the results.

Recipe: Grilled chickpea salad with red onion and sourdough

Over the years, I’ve received roughly a half dozen of those perforated grilling pans as gifts. You know the ones I mean. They usually have sloped sides and small holes in them. The idea is that they let you cook smaller items on the grill without fear of losing the food between the grates.

I’ve never used a single one of them. Not even once. Until now.

Maybe it’s because I don’t often grill small things. Or maybe it’s because when I do, I’m lucky enough to get my food to straddle the grates without it falling into the flames. Whatever the reason, I never found the need to dirty a pan. After all, one of the treats of grilling is no cleanup.

But as I contemplated a grilled salad, I realized I might finally have found a use for one of my six pans. I wanted to try grilling chickpeas for use in a grilled bread salad. Chickpeas are delicious when roasted, so it stands that they also would be delicious when grilled.

But even I would have trouble keeping these suckers from falling through the grates.

Are you one of the few Americans who doesn’t own (and never use) one of these grilling pans? No fear. Just toss the chickpeas with some oil and pop them on a rimmed baking sheet. Roast them in the oven at 450 F for 10 to 15 minutes, or until just starting to brown.

GRILLED CHICKPEA SALAD WITH RED ONION AND SOURDOUGH

Start to finish: 15 minutes

Servings: 6

Juice of 1 lemon4 tablespoons olive oil, divided3 cloves garlic, minced1 teaspoon dried oregano1/2 teaspoon ground cumin1/2 teaspoon kosher salt1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper1 large red onion, cut into thin rounds1 large red bell pepper, cored and cut into strips15-ounce can chickpeas, drained1 teaspoon garlic powder1 teaspoon smoked paprika1 loaf (about 19 ounces) sourdough bread, cut into 2-inch croutons5-ounce container arugula

Heat a grill to high. Set a perforated grilling pan on the grill directly over the heat source.

In a small bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, 2 tablespoons of the olive oil, the garlic, oregano, cumin, salt and pepper. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, combine the onion, bell pepper, chickpeas, garlic powder, smoked paprika and 1 tablespoon of oil, tossing to coat evenly. When the grilling pan is very hot, transfer the mixture to the pan. Cook, stirring often, until the onions and peppers are lightly browned and tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer the mixture to a clean serving bowl. Set aside.

In a bowl, toss the croutons with the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil. Place the croutons directly on the grill grate. Cook, turning often, until lightly browned and crisp. Use tongs to transfer the croutons to the bowl of chickpeas and vegetables. Add the arugula, then toss well to slightly wilt the arugula. Drizzle the dressing over the salad, then toss again to coat. Divide between 6 serving plates.

Missing kangaroo named Mirka back home in Saint-Lazare – Montreal

ABOVE: After a 12-month-old domesticated kangaroo named Mirka escaped from a zoo therapy farm in St-Lazare, Que. on Sunday, zoo therapist Luc Lefebvre was very happy to have her home.

MONTREAL – The search is over for a young kangaroo named Mirka, who went missing from a zoo therapy farm in Saint-Lazare, Que. on Sunday.

The kangaroo was spotted in a neighbour’s backyard late this afternoon and came quickly to his trainer when called.

The 12-month-old is being trained to work with children as part of a zootherapy project.

In a brief conversation with Global News, the kangaroo’s trainer Luc Lefebvre said that he has been completely preoccupied with his search for the missing marsupial.

Mirka was staying at Lefebvre’s farm, located at the corner of Fief and Sainte-Angélique in Saint-Lazare, an off-island town about a 40 minute drive from downtown Montreal.

Lefebvre said that he thought that the young animal may have hopped over a fence. He was worried for her safety, as Mirka is not used to being out on her own in the wild.

Although she is still bottle-fed, he said he believed she could survive by eating leaves.

Mirka will get some rest and tender, loving care before her training resumes later this week.

Thousands of unexpected guests swarm Alberta home

CALGARY- A couple in the Alberta town of Blackfalds is dealing with some unexpected house guests – a swarm of thousands of bees.

“All of a sudden we heard something overhead come in and it was these bees,” says Wade Morgan. “They are nesting, or trying to make a nest, by the thousands. We were just re-roofing and we don’t know what to do; it is incredible.”

Cheryl Morgan suspects the domed shape of the couple’s home attracted the bees.

“Hopefully they don’t think they are going to turn our dome house into one humungous beehive.”

Honey bee swarms are common in the months of June and July, when colonies split into two as a survival strategy.

The owner of this home on an acreage in Blackfalds believe the shape of the house was a factor in attracting a bee swarm.

“Bee keepers’ number one goal is to manage the hives to keep bees from swarming,” says Eliese Watson, who runs Apiaries and Bees for Communities, a Calgary-based group that promotes urban bee keeping.

But she adds it isn’t always possible.

“Now sometimes bees swarm; they naturally want to. And when that occurs it can be quite spectacular to witness.”

The good news for the Morgans is – bees are gentle at this time of year.

“Before they leave, those bees will gorge on honey and pollen. And that’s why when you capture a swarm, they are very gentle and calm. They have full stomachs. It’s like having a fist fight after a turkey dinner.”

Watson stresses the importance of bees as pollinators for much of our food supply, and says life wouldn’t be as sweet without them.

Recipe: Grilled lamb burgers with garlic sauce

Beef may claim to be what’s for dinner in America, but in the Middle East that honour often goes to lamb. It’s prepared in innumerable ways, but my favourite is when the lamb is ground, spiced and grilled, then topped with some kind of yogurt sauce and finally tucked into a pita. And that’s how we’re rolling here.

The only problem with ground lamb is that the kind available at the supermarket often is quite fatty. Generally speaking, of course, fat is where the flavour is – and the moisture. But lamb fat is saturated fat and it’s best to keep our intake of saturated fats down. Happily, lamb is packed with flavour, which means that even the leaner cuts deliver big lamb taste. What about the missing juiciness? We’ve replaced it with vegetables.

The surest way to source lean ground lamb is to grind it yourself or put it in the hands of a pro. Not all markets boast an in-house butcher these days, but if yours does, choose a leaner cut of lamb – a part of the leg, for example- and have the store grind it for you. Of course, if you own a meat grinder, or a stand mixer with a meat-grinding attachment, buy the leaner cut, bring it home, and grind away.

If neither of those options is open to you, you can “grind” your lamb using a food processor. I put grind in quotes, because when you do it with a processor it’s more like chopping or shredding than grinding. Anyway, here’s how it works: cut the meat into 1-inch cubes and freeze them for 30 minutes. Freezing the meat helps it to “grind” more evenly and prevents the processor from overheating the lamb in the process. Put the meat in the processor in batches and pulse until it gets to the desired consistency. But be careful not to overdo it. You don’t want to turn the lamb into mush.

This burger remains super juicy thanks to some onions and zucchini. We caramelize the onions to optimize their flavour, and grate, salt and drain the zucchini. I used to think zucchini were boring until I discovered this trick. The burger then is seasoned with garlic, oregano and lemon, though you’re welcome to swap out the oregano for basil, dill, mint or rosemary. Lamb pairs nicely with all of them.

And if you’re not a fan of lamb, this recipe also is dandy made with beef. You can grind your own beef using the methods for lamb described above. Whichever, please don’t skip the garlic-yogurt sauce. It’s the perfect topping to a grilled burger on a summer day.

GRILLED MIDDLE EASTERN LAMB BURGERS WITH GARLIC SAUCE

Start to finish: 30 minutes

Servings: 4

1 medium zucchini (10 to 12 ounces)Kosher salt1 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil1 cup finely chopped yellow onion1 cup nonfat Greek yogurt1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic, divided2 teaspoons grated lemon zest, dividedGround black pepper1 pound lean ground lamb1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh oreganoOlive oil cooking spray4 pita bread halvesGrated carrots and chopped cucumbers, to serve

Use a food processor or box grater to coarsely grate the zucchini. Transfer the grated zucchini to a strainer. Toss the zucchini with 1/2 teaspoon of salt and let it drain over the sink for 15 minutes. When it is done draining, working with a small handful at a time, squeeze out the zucchini to get rid of as much liquid as possible.

While the zucchini is draining, in a large nonstick or stick-resistant skillet, heat the oil over medium. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, for 6 minutes, or until golden brown. Add the squeezed zucchini and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Transfer the mixture to a medium bowl and let it cool to room temperature.

Heat a grill to medium.

Meanwhile, to make the sauce combine the yogurt, 1/2 teaspoon of the garlic, 1 teaspoon of the lemon zest, and salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.

When the zucchini mixture has cooled, add the lamb, oregano, the remaining 1 teaspoon of lemon zest, the remaining 1 teaspoon of garlic, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper. Mix well, then shape into 4 patties, each about 1/2 inch thick. Spray the burgers lightly with olive oil cooking spray, then grill until medium-rare, 3 to 4 minutes per side.

Serve each burger in a pita half, topped with the garlic sauce, carrots and cucumber.

New styling product for hair straightening

I don’t have curly hair, but growing up with my sister who does, I know all too well the ‘challenges’ curly haired people face daily.

Personally, I love curly hair and wish I had it… I bet I would have a change of heart if I did have it.

If YOU do have the curls and would rather not, Capelli Salon Studio is launching their new product this Friday, June 13 to help tame the fizz and keep the straight!

HunnyB readies for record release

This morning I sat down with recording artist “HunnyB,” also known as Melissa Veszi, who was raised in Saskatoon. She is back in town for a pre-launch and listening party on June 10 at the Remai Arts Centre for her upcoming EP, with the proceeds from the event going towards the Persephone Theatre.

Melissa has an interesting story; she graduated from Aden Bowman Collegiate and has moved around North America and Europe as she pursued a career in music. She recorded her upcoming EP in Toronto, Atlanta, Miami and even London, England. She said the different cultures from those places have found their way into the recordings.

I believe that music is one of the best ways to connect each region and culture to one another. Veszi is a good example of this; a Saskatoon-born girl that’s been able to travel, learn and gather from other cultures, and bring it all back here to debut her EP.

Free outdoor fitness classes

I can’t think of a better way to spend the summer than being outdoors and staying fit (while working on my tan of course). Hosting free fitness lessons outdoors at Kiwanis Park North is a wonderful way to get the community healthy whether or not they are able to afford the lessons.

Today Jana was wonderful enough to give us a taste of what you can expect from her session which will begin next week. Jana is the owner of Lead Pilates and feels it’s important to teach people things they can take home with them.

I learned that a simple stretch like the one we learned with the magic ring can go a long way! The summer outdoor fitness classes began last week and will be hosted all summer long!

Cooking with lentils

In my mind, a lentil salad is the perfect summer dish! I learned today that Saskatchewan produces 99% of all lentils in the country!! What a stat. 杭州夜生活lentils桑拿按摩 has more tasty recipes if you’re in the market to change up your summer meals.
