TOP U.S. GENERAL

INVESTIGATED IN

PETRAEUS SCANDAL

WASHINGTON – The sex scandal

that led to CIA Director David Petraeus’

resignation widened today,

with the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan

under investigation for

alleged “inappropriate communications”

with a woman who received

threatening emails from Petraeus’

former lover.

Defence Secretary Leon Panetta

revealed that the Pentagon had begun

an internal investigation into

thousands of pages of emails from

Gen. John Allen to a second woman

involved in the Petraeus case.

Allen succeeded Petraeus as

the top American commander in

Afghanistan in July 2011, and his

nomination to become the next

commander of the U.S. European

Command and the commander of

NATO forces in Europe has been put

on hold.

In a White House statement early

today, National Security spokesman

Tommy Vietor said President

Barack Obama has held Allen’s

nomination at Panetta’s request.

Meanwhile, FBI agents prepared

a timeline of the Petraeus affair

and searched the home of Paula

Broadwell, the 40-year-old biographer

with whom Petraeus had an

affair that led to his abrupt resignation

Friday.

TENTATIVE DEAL REACHED

WITH OMA: MCGUINTY

Premier Dalton McGuinty says the

province has reached a tentative fee

agreement with the Ontario Medical

Association.

The premier made the announcement

this morning, saying both

sides were able to work together to

reach a deal that is fair to patients,

doctors and taxpayers.

The deal, which is scheduled to

be voted on by doctors next month,

would last until 2014.

Talks between the province and

the OMA, which represents 25,000

doctors, resumed in September after

a few rocky months.

Negotiations had broken off earlier

this year and the government

made regulatory changes to cut

Ontario Health Insurance Plan fees

and premiums.

‘OMNISHAMBLES’ CHOSEN

AS WORD OF THE YEAR

LONDON – Britain’s media

are in a meltdown and its

government is gaffe-prone,

so Oxford Dictionaries has

chosen an apt Word of the

Year: “omnishambles.”

Oxford University Press

today crowned the word –

defined as “a situation that

has been comprehensively

mismanaged, characterized

by a string of blunders and

miscalculations” – its top

term of 2012.

Each year, Oxford University

Press tracks how the

English language is changing

and chooses a word that

best reflects the mood of the

year. The publisher typically

chooses separate British

and American winners. This

year’s American champion

is “gif,” short for graphics

interchange format, a common

format for images on

the Internet.

Coined by writers of a satirical

television show called

TUESDAY NIGHT

The Thick of It, omnishambles

has been applied to everything

from government

PR blunders to the crisisridden

preparations for the

London Olympics.

Oxford University Press

lexicographer Susie Dent

said the word was chosen

for its popularity as well as

its “linguistic productivity.”

She said “a notable coinage

coming from the word is

Romneyshambles” – a derisive

term used by the British

press after U.S. presidential

candidate Mitt Romney expressed

doubts about London’s

ability to host a successful

Olympics.

Omnishambles was chosen

over shortlisted terms

including “mummy (or

mommy) porn” – the genre

exemplified by the bestselling

“50 Shades” book series

– and “green-on-blue,”

military attacks by forces

regarded as neutral, as

13.11.2012 P. 03

when members of the Afghan

army or police attack

foreign troops.

The Olympics offered up

finalists including the verb

to medal,” “Games Maker” –

the name given to thousands

of Olympic volunteers – and

distance runner Mo Farah’s

victory dance, “the Mobot.”

Europe’s financial crisis

lent the shortlisted 1

Round word

“Eurogeddon,” while technology

produced “second

Client: TVO

screening” – watching TV

while simultaneously using

a computer, phone or tablet

– and social media popularized

the acronym “YOLO,”

you only live once.

The final shortlisted term

in Britain is an old word given

new life. “Pleb,” a derogatory

epithet for lower-class

people, was alleged to have

been uttered to a police officer

by British Cabinet minister

Andrew Mitchell.

PRESIDENT OF WINDOWS LEAVING MICROSOFT

REDMOND, Wash. — Microsoft Corp. said that Steven

Sinofsky, the president of its Windows and Windows Live

operations, is leaving the company.

Sinofsky’s departure comes just weeks after the Redmond,

Washington state, software company launched Windows

8, which represented a major overhaul of its ubiquitous

computer operating system.

Company veteran Julie Larson-Green has been promoted

to lead all Windows software and hardware engineering,

Microsoft said yesterday. Tami Reller will take over

responsibility for the Windows business while retaining her

posts as chief financial officer and chief marketing officer.

The company did not say why Sinofsky is leaving.

In a statement, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer expressed

gratitude for Sinofsky’s contribution to the company. He

indicated the need for the company to further integrate its

array of offerings, which in addition to Windows includes

services such as Bing, Skype and Xbox and a new tablet

computer, as it begins what he called “a new era at Microsoft.”

TRUCK FULL OF COBRAS SEIZED IN THAILAND

BANGKOK, Thailand — Thai authorities have seized a pickup

truck full of deadly cobras at a checkpoint in the country’s

central region. They believe the snakes came from Malaysia

and were destined for use in traditional medicine or human

consumption.

Thai Customs chief Benja Louicharoen said Tuesday that

officials found 600 cobras worth about 500,000 baht ($16,500

U.S.) in mesh bags inside plastic baskets in the truck.

Officials arrested a Thai driver after the suspicious vehicle

was stopped 210 kilometres south of Bangkok.

Benja says the man confessed he was delivering the snakes

to northeast Thailand where they were to be smuggled over

the border into Laos.

Thailand is a major transit country for illegal wildlife

trafficking in Asia.

RUSSIAN WOMAN, 56, FIGHTS OFF WOLF WITH AXE

MAKHACHKALA, Russia — Beware of 56-year-old Russian

women with axes.

A lone wolf attacked Aishat Maksudova outside her sister’s

home in Russia’s province of Dagestan in the North Caucasus

Mountains.

The animal bit the farmer on her arm and her leg and she

fell to the ground, crying out for help from other villagers.

No one was in earshot. So she reached for an axe she had

brought along to repair a fence, and with remarkable aplomb,

she hit the wolf over the head several times until his teeth

unclenched.

The wolf later died.

Maksudova has become a hero in the Caspian Sea province

that lies east of Chechnya. She was still being treated for her

wounds today at a local hospital after last week’s incident.

Doctors said she is recuperating well.

DEMAND FOR SERVICES WILL

OUTPACE GROWTH: REPORT

Canada’s federal, provincial

and municipal governments

must be prepared to address

a $93-billion shortfall

by 2025 if they hope to keep

pace with the needs of the

country’s rapidly aging population,

a global consulting

giant said today.

A report from Accenture

said demands for public services

will outpace Canada’s

economic growth over the

next 13 years, leaving all

levels of government unable

to provide public services at

present-day standards.

The country’s growing

group of senior citizens

would bear the brunt of the

shortfall, Accenture said.

TUESDAY NIGHT

People 65 or older currently

make up 14.1% of

the population. Accenture

projects that number will

increase to 20.6% by 2025.

Joel Marchildon, a managing

director in the federal

group at Accenture Canada,

said this demographic trend

does not bode well.

“That portion of the population

just does demand

more in terms of public

services,” Marchildon said.

“That’s what’s going to

largely create this gap. We’re

going to have more people in

that age bracket, and delivering

services to that group

is going to increase in cost.”

Canada currently spends

A wave of retirements

among business owners

over the next few years

could pose a significant risk

for the economy as the country

undergoes the biggest

transfer of economic control

in its history, according to

CIBC World Markets.

CIBC says half of all smalland

medium-sized businesses

in Canada are set to

retire over the next decade.

“The economic implications

of the accelerated pace

at which firms are changing

hands should not be underestimated,”

CIBC’s Benjamin

Tal said in the report issued

today.

An estimated $1.9 trillion

in business assets are poised

to change hands in five years

the biggest transfer of Canadian

business control on

record, CIBC says.

And by 2022, this number

will mushroom to at least

13.11.2012 P. 04

about 28% of its gross domestic

product on providing

public services such as

health care, pensions and

social supports that benefit

the country’s seniors,

Marchildon said.

GDP is on pace to grow

2.3% between 2010 and

2025, but the report found

that wouldn’t be enough to

sustain the country’s elderly

residents.

Provinces and territories

spend an average of $10,700

on people over 65, more

than five times higher than

the average of $2,000 required

to care for those 64

HOW TO DESTROY ANGELS: AN OMEN EP

Sony/Columbia, Rating: 4/5

Trent Reznor arguably did his best work as Nine Inch Nails

not long before the project’s temporary retirement in 2009.

The sudden push away from NiN was a bit of a shock.

But thankfully, Reznor’s successive project How to

Destroy Angels has seemingly given him respite from his

demons. He’s enlisted his wife Mariqueen Maandig to serve

as frontwoman, and while she’s not much of a singer, she

balances out the music’s darker edge.

CRYSTAL CASTLES: III

Fiction, Rating: 3.5/5

In case you’re feeling too optimistic, here’s the third album

from Crystal Castles to remind you things are not hunky-dory.

It exemplifies a chosen theme – oppression – by drowning

singer Alice Glass in a pool of noise. It seems to be politically

motivated, but the effect is like reading a book in a language

you only sort-of understand. That’s not to say the songs

are weak; III is a strong step forward. It just feels like they

have something truly important to say, and rendering Glass

unintelligible leaves any message buried and forgotten.

THE ROLLING STONES: GRRR!

Universal Music Group, Rating: 1.5/5

There are dozens of ways to get into the Rolling Stones.

Buying GRRR! should be your last resort.

It’s an exhaustive – or maybe just plain exhausting – bestof

compilation spanning the Stones’ first single to their

most revent album, 2005’s A Bigger Bang, rounded out by

48 other songs you either own in some form already or that

you couldn’t care less about.

JAGGER’S LOVE LETTERS

GOING UP FOR AUCTION

Mick Jagger’s love letters are being

put up for auction.

The Rolling Stones rocker

penned a series of 10 letters in

1969 to his former flame, American

singer Marsha Hunt, which will be

auctioned off at Sotheby’s in London

next month.

“When a serious historian finally

examines how and why Britain’s boy

bands affected international culture

and politics, this well-preserved

collection of Mick Jagger’s hand

written letters will be a revelation,”

Hunt said in a statement.

Hunt, 66, has revealed the

correspondence chronicles their

“delicate love affair,” and says the

letters were written from the set of

Jagger’s film Ned Kelly in Australia.

They discuss subjects of the time,

like the first moon landing and John

Lennon and Yoko Ono’s relationship.

Sotheby’s books specialist Gabriel

Heaton said the collection – which

includes song lyrics and a Rolling

Stones playlist – shows a “poetic and

self-aware” young Jagger.

One Direction’s Harry Styles and

“Harry and Niall like to get

a source said. “So in the last few

months, they’ve started using

pseudonyms to befriend their fans

on Twitter. They have no idea the

strangers they’re talking to are

actually their idols.”

The source added to the Daily

they like and don’t like. It’s also a

Katy Perry hid under a table when

The singer was reportedly

“As soon as Katy saw Russell,

emerged,” a source told The Sun

money on the table and they headed

to the back door and their waiting

car.

“Russell didn’t seem to see a thing

but everyone in the restaurant saw

what happened.”

were spotted at the Los Angeles

Lakers’ season opener, where they

were seated at opposite ends of the

The 20-year-old actress and the

A friend of Gomez told The Sun

to watch this unfold over the past

year or so. Selena has shed so many

tears over Justin. She’s tried to split

up with him so many times but

they have always ended up back

together.

“It’s out in the open now and that

is one of the toughest parts, so that

means there’s more chance it will be

permanent this time.

“But we expect Justin to try to win

her back – and he tends to get what

he wants.”

Osisko’s timing questioned

with Queenston deal

By JONATHAN RATNER

jratner@nationalpost.com

Osisko Mining Corp.’s

$550-million all-stock deal

to purchase Queenston

Mining was not well received

by investors yesterday.

While analysts consider

the valuation paid for

Queenston to be fair, the

8% decline in Osisko

shares reflects a lack of

understanding.

Queenston’s Upper

Beaver mine is a relatively

small project that diversifies

Osisko away from its core

competency of open pit,

bulk mining. It also comes

before Osisko’s Canadian

Malartic mine has achieved

a steady state, according to

Brad Humphrey, analyst at

Raymond James.

“We suspect that we will

learn more regarding the

timing of the acquisition

in the coming quarters;

however, we can’t help

but wonder why this

announcement was made at

a time when the market is

eagerly awaiting design level

performance at Malartic,”

Humphrey told clients.

Humphrey said the

acquisition introduces

an additional set of

uncertainties

and

distractions into the

investment case for Osisko.

“We believe this

transaction will bring Osisko

under the microscope of

investors who have been

known to be dissatisfied

with the decisions of mining

equities, at a time when

cash flow and execution is

paramount,” he added.

As for potential

competing bids, analysts see

the likelihood of any other

offer as relatively low.

Agnico-Eagle Mines Ltd.

would seem to be the most

likely candidate since it

owns 9.2% of Queenston

and the Lapa mine, which

is adjacent to Queenston’s

Pandora and Wood-Pandora

projects in Quebec.

Sears Canada reduces net loss to $22M in Q3

Sears Canada Inc. reduced its net loss in the third quarter to $21.9

million, about half what the department store chain racked up

last year.

The loss amounted to 22 cents per share – an improvement

from the year-earlier loss of $44.1 million or 42 cents per share.

The third quarter of 2011 included negative items related

to clearing excess inventory and internal restructuring at the

national department store operation.

Sears says its revenue in this year’s third quarter ended Oct. 27

was $1.03 billion, down about $76 million from a year earlier.

Quebecor cutting 500 jobs at Sun Media

MONTREAL – Quebecor Inc. is cutting some 500 jobs at its Sun

Media newspaper division and closing two production facilities in

Ottawa and Kingston.

The downsizing is part of the Montreal-based media group’s

efforts to reduce annual costs by $45 million.

There had been earlier reports Quebecor would eliminate the

position of publisher at some newspapers but the number of job

cuts was bigger than expected.

Quebecor’s president and CEO, Pierre Karl Peladeau, says

the restructuring is regrettable but warranted by changes in the

newspaper industry.

He says Sun Media remains committed to its publications,

which include the Toronto Sun and other dailies across Canada

under the Sun and other banners. Quebecor Inc. says it expects

annual savings of $45 million from taking a new operational and

management approach at its newspaper publishing arm, which

includes the Sun Media group of newspapers.

DIGITAL CONTENT EDITOR,

It’s not often that Canadians

fight fellow Canadians in the

UFC, but when it happens,

Canadian fans typically aren’t

thrilled about it, even though

the fighters don’t mind.

At UFC 154 in Montreal this

Saturday, Sam Stout of

London, Ont., takes on John

Makdessi of Montreal in a

preliminary lightweight bout.

There are eight fights

involving Canadians on the

card, but this is the only all-

Canadian battle.

“It kind of sucks that I’m

MOTORCYCLES

& MEDITATION

Boys practice yoga by the statue of Shiva near the Ganges river.

Photos by Peter McBride

By PETER McBRIDE

High above the the Ganges

River, on a swaying bridge,

I realize how far I’ve strayed

from my quest. The sound of a Royal

Enfield motorcycle under me is the

giveaway. I had come to the remote

town of Rishikesh, India, with a

vision of deep silence and lots of

yoga. Yet something lured me astray.

Rishikesh is a shopping mall

for spirituality. For those seeking

enlightenment or adventures, the

healing power of the Ganges is a

magnet, attracting hundreds of

thousands each year. As a result,

Rishikesh and its neighbour Haridwar

are hot spots teeming with

ashrams, yoga schools, rafting companies

and vegan restaurants.

In 1968, the Beatles came here to

study meditation. Ringo left early,

but John, Paul and George stayed –

and wrote 40 songs, many of which

found their way on to the White

Album. I hadn’t come to write music,

but to retune an ailing back.

Growing up on a ranch in Colorado,

I forged some less than limber

muscles loading hay bales – and

competing in hockey, ski racing and

mountain biking. My idea of stretching

involved a few toe touches.

The American yoga scene was too

distracting. I was that guy struggling

to keep up. The therapeutic value

was limited. My years of sports,

paired now with the milestones of

aging, resulted in a persistent pain in

my spine. An X-ray revealed a vertebra

stuck more inward than the rest.

If I didn’t stabilize the area with

exercises and stretching, I would

be forced to have my spine fused –

surgery, metal rods. Yoga, I was told,

could help. Enter Rishikesh, world

capital of yoga. I set off to find my

inner om. What did I have to lose

The motorcycle rumble was not

part of the yoga retuning, but I

glide through traffic on the swaying

bridge. Pedestrians whisper as I

weave past and around mopeds and

sacred cows.

After I cross the bridge, I head

down an alley and turn into the

courtyard of Parmarth Niketan

Ashram. I’ve been in residence here

for three days and am feeling centred.

I’d chosen Parmarth because

it is less strict than other ashrams,

allowing guests to come and go. I

was also impressed by its mission

to offer medical care to those in dire

need. In addition, Parmarth supports

maybe 200 boys, providing

housing, food, academic education

and spiritual teachings.

At 6:50 the next morning, I sit in

a simple room with poster-size photos

of Pujya Swamiji smiling down

on our group. Named 1991’s Hindu

of the Year by Hinduism Today,

Pujya Swamiji is the spiritual head

of Parmarth, and though he doesn’t

teach, he is occasinally on the scene

in the evening.

As I listen to my teacher, an

American, I work on a breathing

technique that involves inhaling

and exhaling through one nostril

at a time. There are no New Age

tunes, no distracting outfits and no

attitude. Before I came here, I knew

There are no New Age tunes,

no distracting outfits

and no attitude

something about the cultural divide

between Indian and American yoga

– some say that the American infatuation

with fitness has caused yoga to

stretch in the direction of exercise.

Others argue that the dichotomy is

all part of yoga’s ongoing evolution.

After class, I meet Ramya, one of

two American yoga teachers at the

ashram. When I ask her about yoga’s

cultural divide, she smiles. “There

is a saying: ‘Yoga came to change

America, but America changed

yoga.’”

I digest the observation as I eat.

With little choice, my appetite submits

to the Vedic diet of alkaline

foods: lentils, rice, veggies, spices.

The coffee withdrawal, at first, is

cruel. The other staggering hurdle is

eating cross-legged on the floor.

Over the next few days, I drift

through a pattern of waking to the

ashram’s chants, attending classes

before breakfast and eating meals

in silence. I also begin leaving the

ashram to explore Rishikesh and

neighbouring Haridwar.

It’s beyond the ashram that I discover

my secret meditation weapon:

the motorcycle. I’d connected with

its source, a man named Madhav,

via Facebook. Raised in an ashram,

Madhav abandoned the austere path

the day he arrived in Rishikesh. He

claims that “the power of the Ganges

was so high, I couldn’t depart.”

Today, he does the logistical heavy

lifting for large groups of visitors.

He also helps with random requests

from visitors like me. After I emailed

him asking the best way to get from

A to B, he finally asked, “Would a

motorcycle work for you” When I

meet him, he is next to my Britishdesigned,

Indian-built motorcycle. I

can’t decide which looks nicer, the

bike or my new friend.

On my first outing, I explore the

crumbling ashram where the Beatles

lived. During sunsets, I enjoy the

singing at aarti – a daily ceremony on


the banks of the Ganges. Scores of

Indians and curious travellers sing

Hindu hymns and swirl lanterns

before splashing Ganges water on

their feet. Some offer prayers via

candles that they float downstream

in miniature boats made of leaves.

Despite such blissful days, I

wondered if the yoga classes would

become more challenging, if I

would learn some contortions and

become more limber. Not once had

I even broken a sweat in class. Was

I missing something I express my

concerns to Madhav. “Peter, yoga

is more about the mind than the

body,” he says. “Worry is praying for

what you don’t want.”

After a week on the ashram

routine, I leave camp and motor

up the Ganges. Madhav had said

that the its power strengthens

farther upstream. Snaking north,

I pass bands of monkeys sitting

in the road. In sections, the road

shadows the Ganges; in others, the

river water flows a hundred metres

below, churning under cliffs.

Cars and trucks pass three

abreast, blaring horns that echo off

the mountains. Despite many reckless

passes, no one shakes a fist or

hollers a Hindi word of road rage.

Signs offer reminders: “Licence to

Drive, Not to Fly.”

I arrive at Vashista cave, thought

to be the oldest meditative cave in

the region. It’s where I can catch

a rowboat across the Ganges to

Anand Lok, a yoga and meditation

retreat where I’ll stay for two days.

First, though, I have to find somewhere

to park my motorcycle.

With dusk gathering, I notice a

man cloaked in saffron-coloured

robes. I ask if he can help me with

the bike. He opens his arms and

says, “Leave bike with me.” In my

mind, a red flag shoots up. While

saffron robes generally signify a

holy man, rumours circulate that

criminals use the same robes as

cover. I choose to stick with Madhav’s

non-worry approach. I tell

him I’ll be back in a few days.

Anand Lok overlooks the Ganges

on the edge of the village of

Sirasu. Only one pedestrian bridge

connects it to the modern world.

Jagdish, who is in charge of housekeeping,

makes me feel welcome.

For the next couple of days, two

fellow visitors from Parmarth and

I walk along the Ganges, drink chai

and play with children in the village.

Throughout India, the poverty

can be overwhelming. However,

the smiling faces of Jagdish and his

neighbours offer testimony to the

wealth of contentment. Like many

villagers, they are poor in rupees

yet rich in spirit and appear happy.

I do sun salutations on a sandy

beach one morning. A teenager,

who speaks little English, decides to

join me. He closes his eyes and falls

backward, folding into a backbend.

Given our language rift, we end

up communicating with yoga poses

and laughter. After a while, I point

to the river and say, “Swim” The

boy answers with a head wobble –

that ubiquitous Indian gesture that

I understand as “very good.”

We strip down to boxers and

dash into the icy waterss. The blast

of cold steals my air and pierces me

awake. Swimming in the Ganges is

believed to be purifying physically

and symbolically, washing away

all sins. My swimming companion

and I let out whoops as we clamber

back to shore. I feel electrified.

“Hello” I say hesitantly as I enter

total darkness. Clearly not the best

way to enter an ancient meditation

cave. No one answers. I’d left my

swimming pal, Anand Lok and Jagdish

to recross the Ganges and get

back on the road. I also wanted to

spend time in Vashista cave. I stop

near candlelight, sit down crosslegged

and try to relax. Eyes closed,

I focus on my breathing. My mind

quickly strays. Why am I here Has

the robed man stolen my bike

I return the focus to my lungs.

A mental rhythm aligns with my

breath. I open my eyes. Suddenly, I

see the entire cave. I’m alone at the

end of a long passageway. Tokens of

worship sit on a stone altar.

Back outside, I glance at the

time. My internal clock tells me I

have meditated for 10 minutes. My

watch says it has been over 50.

Parked just as I’d left it, the

shiny motorcycle sits up the hill,

unharmed. My bike keeper appears.

“See, no problem,” he says. “Bike

here. Money.”

I happily hand over a wad of

rupees. The man shuffles his saffron

robe, quickly burying the notes. My

bike rumbles to life. I swerve past

cows, street vendors, hippies and

healers. I miss Madhav and the ashram,

but I take one more side trip.

Hidden in the hills north of

Rishikesh, Ananda Spa is considered

one of the best in the world.

The treacherous road leading to it

comes with warning signs: “Road

Is Hilly, Don’t Be Silly” and “After

Whiskey, Driving Risky.”

When I roll past a security gate

into the entrance area, I garner

a few looks. “Does the valet take

motorcycles” I ask casually. “Of

course. We love Enfields,” the manager

says. “But you are the first to

arrive by bike. Very unique.”

I spend only a night at Ananda.

I eat well and experience an

ayurvedic treatment. Two men

karate-chop my back with herbfilled

bags. At the end of the treatment,

my back is sore but looser.

Somewhat reluctant to leave,

I motor downhill to the chaotic

vitality that defines India. I arrive

at the start of the evening aarti.

Pujya Swamiji walks by. His frame

is small, yet his presence towers.

“You’re back, Peter,” he says. With

long, flowing hair and beard, he

glides past, his robes swaying.

“Welcome home.”

Later that night, I find Madhav. He

is helping organize a large party. As I

wait to chat with him, he is hounded

with requests. Madhav answers each

with grace and yogi cool. Madhav,

I realize, is the walking example of

that knowing soul I aspire to be.

Nothing, no matter the urgency or

size, derails him. He doesn’t live in a

cave, nor did he guide me through a

single contortion. Yet he taught me,

almost daily, to realize that my mind

needs as much stretching as my back.

After two weeks of yoga, I can

touch my toes and sit cross-legged

through a meal. My back The persistent

pain has subsided. Did my

spine actually start to heal I don’t

know, but I don’t worry about it.

THE CITY’S BEST

RESTAURANT

BURGERS

WORDS: ROBYN URBACK PHOTOS: JESSE MILNS

While burgers as a category still tends to carry a bit of a

diner/pub food/quick eats connotation, the burgers on

this list represent real meals. So go ahead, unfold that

napkin on your lap and let the burger come to you. Here

is the list of the best restaurant burgers in Toronto.

1 HARBORD ROOM

89 HARBORD ST.

Medium-rare is the way to enjoy for this famous burger,

known as “the” item to order at Harbord Room.

The juicy patty comes topped with sharp cheddar and

caramelized onions served on a fluffy egg bun, with

fries and a salad on the side. With its helping of housesmoked

maple bacon, this $16 burger plate is definitely

a winner.

4 BYMARK

66 WELLINGTON ST. W.

Bymark is the home of the $35 burger – and no, it’s not

a novelty. This 8-oz. offering is made with grass-fed

USDA prime and topped with soft Brie de Meaux,

porcini mushrooms and truffle aioli and is served with

a side of onion rings or fries. Keep in mind: this is one

big burger, so prepare to stretch your jaw almost as

much as your wallet.

7 QUEEN & BEAVER

35 ELM ST.

This burger is a meat-lover’s dream, made with handchopped

sirloin and topped with thick-cut bacon. Tomato

terrine and Stilton cheese add to its can’t-putit-down

goodness. The $17 plate comes with a side of

freshly cut “chips” – this is a British place, after all.

2 BESTELLEN

972 COLLEGE ST.

Bestellen offers a much more refined take on the average

burger and fries. They use three types of beef (striploin,

chuck and short ribs) ground in-house to make its patties.

Burgers are then topped with caramelized onions

and Raclette, and served on a housemade brioche bun

with a side of frites and smoked ketchup. It’s pricey, but

most people would say Bestellen’s burger is worth the

$18.

5 ALLEN’S

143 DANFORTH AVE.

A somewhat off-menu option, but always asked for by

regulars, Allen’s burgers are made with fresh ground

sirloin, packed thick and juicy, and served on a classic

bun. It comes plated alone for around $10 (with a side

of fries available for extra), with topping options of blue

cheese, sautéed mushrooms, caramelized onions and

more. Best enjoyed with a cold one.

8 HRVATI BAR

690 EUCLID AVE.

This Croatian-style burger is seven ounces of juicy

ground Ontario beef stuffed with smoky mozzarella and

topped with caramelized onions, lettuce, tomato and

pickles, served atop traditional steamed lepinje bread,

all for $14. With a side of fries and a cold Karlovacko

beer, it’s the best way to experience the Hrvati Bar vibe.

3 MARBEN

488 WELLINGTON ST. W.

Braised ribs in the centre – that’s all you really need

to know, but there’s more. For brunch, lunch or dinner,

John’s Burger ($18) often beats out the less meaty

menu options. The aforementioned braised rib centre

is topped with aged cheddar and coleslaw and served

with fries or greens. Cut it into quarters for easier eating.

6 PARTS & LABOUR

1566 QUEEN ST. W.

It’s the signature Parts & Labour tangy and kind-of-hot

special sauce that makes this burger – that and the halfpound

of Ontario beef. Parts & Labour’s burger is another

biggie, smothered with aged cheddar and a couple

other classic fixings wedged between a fresh egg bun.

Served with a side of fries, naturally, for $18.

9 THE GABARDINE

372 BAY ST.

Like Queen & Beaver, The Gabardine knows that sirloin

and bacon simply make for a perfect burger match. The

sirloin bacon cheeseburger comes thick and smothered

with cheese and topped with roasted tomato, with a little

aioli for extra flavour. A pile of fries, too, decorates

your plate, just in case the giant burger doesn’t fill you

up. Priced at $18.

JUST OPENED

THOMAS

960 QUEEN ST. W., 2ND FLOOR

Fans of West Queen West’s Ruins were sad to hear of its closing a few short

months ago. Happily, designer Michael Joseph Thomas is now devoting himself

to his eponymous brand and has switched locations with vintage shop Chosen.

You’ll now find his men’s and women’s clothing (along with his two cats) in an

almost gothic retail space just upstairs from his previous location, where he also

has an open studio.

ago was chasing someone who I assume robbed

him. You were chasing the guy down Gould

Street and across Yonge and finally back down

Gould Street, near Ryerson. I am sorry I didn’t

intervene. At first, I thought that the both of you

were friends and that you were horsing around.

I will try not to make that mistake again. Hope

you reported it, and I hope that you were able to

recover what was lost. --- DarkNormalcy

True, I could have lied. I could have kept things

going but it just wasn’t worth it. It got really

annoying. It meant nothing to me during or

after. I am so happy now with my life and I have

everything I have ever dreamed of @dealwithit

@lswgirl: way to complain about wifi after using

the first world problem #. You crack me up.

-laughing

I saw u thru the rain, a dream gliding along

the platform. I almost went after u. Almost.

But something felt right about the silence

and the distance. And I realized this is the

Way. Freedom for u; freedom for me. I

went my way. We fade to black.

Someone commented a few weeks ago about

waiting for a westbound bus at Wilson Subway

and said how bad it was. It is really horrid, nobody

queues, they all just push in. Where have all the

people gone who have any class and manners

One of the most annoying things is someone

chewing gum loudly with their mouth open

... Nov. 7 - 4.30 Milton train I felt sorry for the

people sitting in your quad. Chew with your

mouth closed ... MeadowValeGoRider

@freefromsmoking: I’ve tried the patch, gum,

lozenges, the inhaler, and Allen Carr’s Easyway

to Stop Smoking. The book is the only thing that

worked for me. Best of luck!

Dear Pretentious Iphone users: The reception

being lost between rouge hill and pickering

on your way to Ajax has nothing to do with

your precious iPhone 4, 4S or 5. It’s the

cellular tower that loses connectivity. In rural

areas, signal gets lost in hills and valleys; think

about the landscape. #5minstextfreeishealthy

GO train riders should act like adults, unless

you’re a child, then act like a child. Point is, no

one cares that you forgot to tap on/off. That’s

your own damn fault -BlackGirlLessons

To the Presto Haters: Good thing you wrote in

to the Shout Outs. Now GO is sure to keep the

monthly pass!

TUESDAY NIGHT

13.11.2012 P. 13

@pleasehelpmeunderstand: You must be the

biggest nag of all time to complain about such

a petty thing by saying that people that sit

diagonally on the train should show common

courtesy so you don’t have to wiggle through. If

you have to wiggle, you should join a gym. Please

shut the F up or get your big butt to the train earlier

if it upsets you. To hear people like you complain

about nothing makes me vomit. Get a life ...

Signed, CANTMAKEANIDIOTEVERUNDERSTAND.

To my sexy kukla: I can’t wait to see you now that

you are back from your trip

Dr. Sniffle do you have a card Would love to get

a few folks I know in to see you!

Hey guys, thanks for all your replies. Clearly you

can’t read ... So let’s try again shall we I am a

G-U-Y in his 30s looking for a G-I-R-L in HER 30s to

have some fun with, melt away the blahs. Email

me if you are interested. Enoughsaidtoronto@

Looking for opinions here. Is it ok to give myself

a mani pedi on the train – provided I offer to

do the same for everyone else in my quad -

Found iPod in a Pink case @ Cooksville GO

Union station

Shout out to my wife Lucy (Happy Birthday LP)

and my daughter Jessica (White Coat Day BBS).

We will celebrate this special day all 3 together.

Proud husband and Dad.

Dead End: HOW do you know she has boyfriend

It may be her friend or ex. Maybe she really

wants out of the “relationship”but doesn’t

know how. Maybe she doesn’t know that you

like her. maybe she is embarrassed and feels

bad that she has a boyfriend. There are so many

variables. If she likes you, she doesn’t want to

be with him.

@Appreciative Gal: I was offended by your post.

You would accept lower pay in exchange for

guys opening the door for you You sound like

the kind of woman who is desperate for male

attention and would give up your self respect to

get it. I am an empowered woman who plans on

smashing the glass ceiling and working my way

to the top of the corporate ladder. I treat men

with respect and i get treated like a lady. Have

some more respect for yourself and you will see

a change in the way people treat you, for the

better. -powertothewomen

SHOUT OUTS

Lighten up people – do you forget you only live

once Don’t spend it complaining, being upset,

jealous, furious. Of course s--- happens. I have

my days too but it’s all about practising POSITIVE

thinking! Mind over matter people ;) I wish you

all a wonderful week! XO @LifeIsTooShort

40-yr -old male looking 4 married mom 40-45 for

fun

so you sent a Shout Out to curly hair with a smile

@ 95 wellington. Hi back! Hey are you ever just

going to come up and say hi in person :)

So I’ve been seeing this guy on the 510 milton

line for a while. Dressed sharp, pseudo glasses –

we always make eye contact & smile, but I’m too

shy to say something. I thought it was super cute

when ur headphones got pulled out of ur phone

and Enrique Iglesias started blasting. Let me be

ur hero. -CurlySue

“I don’t need a whole lots of money, I don’t need

a big fine car. I got everything that a man could

want, I got more than I could ask for. I don’t have

to run around, I don’t have to stay out all night.

Cuz I got me a sweet, a sweet lovin’ woman, and

she knows just how to treat me right.” Name that

tune! - Rock-n-roller

4 1/2 years ago, I was diagnosed with a heart

condition. I quit smoking (after 30 years)

immediately and have not had a drag since.

What worked for me was being prepared for the

games my mind and body were going to play. I

did not avoid hanging with people who smoke.

I filled the empty spots left on my table where

the ashtray and smoke pack were with remote

controls, so my mind didn’t notice the void. I

won’t lie, quitting smoking is not the easiest

thing to do but I feel a 1,000 x better! One day at

a time. And good luck! proudexsmoker

To: Proposal Intrigue. I am sooooo happy you

decided to respond. Send me an email. And I’ll

send you a picture and tell you anything you want

to know about me. idofavours@ymail.com. Hope

to hear from you both soon. I Do Favours Chick

To the lady who wedged herself in the door

next to me while exiting the St. Clair streetcar:

I felt pretty rude and I’m sure you might feel the

same. I should have let you go first but I was in

an awkward position. Forgive me. It did make

me laugh, though, because it was so ridiculous.

I hope you’re not too pissed off.

To Appreciative Gal: Did you just fall off the turnip

truck, from the 1940s That has got to be the

stupidest thing anyone can ever say! Next you’re

going to claim a woman’s job is to be pregnant

and barefoot!

People can do things that set us off, but ask

yourself: “Was it really that person who made

me angry or perhaps there is an underlying

issue residing within” Instead of becoming

blind with rage when someone crosses you, step

back and look at the bigger picture. If we expect

people to act in accordance to what we deem as

acceptable, then we need to not look outward

and complain, but to look inward and change

who we are as individuals. Allow compassion

and understanding to enter your mind, instead

of anger and aggression. I’m not saying this will

be easy, but if we take the steps toward bettering

ourselves first, we will notice the change in

others unravel before our eyes. – O.G.

To all TTC riders, when exiting the train at

Yonge, please do so as quickly and painlessly as

possible. Running to catch the waiting train only

to be blocked by all the slow clueless people is

extremely frustrating – especially as I miss the

train because I can’t get through all the riders

who just exited. That is all

@Microplagiarist: Teasing your senses has

become my necessity. Your power over me is a

sweet pain all over my body. I hunger for your

gaze, wish for your hug, dream of your kiss.

How to make it real I guess only brave

folks drink champagne. Why don’t you invite

me for coffee I won’t bite, maybe just a little:)

-Mylittlenoveltoyou

To the beautiful Indian woman looking for an

FWB. How do I contact you I am very interested.

You can email me at enoughsaidtoronto@gmail.

com. Hope to hear from you.

As a responsible diabetic, I test my blood sugar

long before a potential low happens (passing out,

unable to drive responsibly) or a high blood sugar

occurs (vomiting). I hope you agree that managing

my type 1 diabetes carefully to ensure I’m in the

correct range is so important, even though it can

mean having to do it in public. On behalf of other

people who suffer with this disease, I ask for your

understanding. Properly managing this disease is

the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do – and I’ve

been doing it for almost 25 years. Signed, guilty of

testing my sugar in public.

Dear RSP lady, blond hair, on the 505 LSE on

Thursday evening you yelled into your phone

blabbing about how your finances are better

than your friends, blah, blah, blah. Shut the F

up. You don’t enjoy your life, don’t bitch about

how your friend and her husband “waste”

their money on vacations – they are not boring

people. Enjoy your $100/month allowance that

you give yourself. -LSEdude

To FWB Indian Woman: I think I have something

to fill your cravings ... in response to your s/o on

Dear potty-mouth, pity-party aka the couple who

changed their baby on the table at Tim’s: This

mom would never dream of changing a baby on

a restaurant table. Out of options How about on

a change pad on the ground Not ideal, but also

not a public health violation. Signed, been there,

but wouldn’t do that.

@Freefromsmoking: congrats on your choice to

quit. I second reading the book by Allen Carr. It

really does put quiting into a new light. Also if

you are prone to give in while drinking. Get one

of those vapor cigarettes with no nicotine in

them. It has saved me countless times when i

was drinking and tempted to light up. Good luck!

To the indian woman seeking an FWB: I would

be more than happy to meet someone like you

TUESDAY NIGHT

13.11.2012 P. 14

... I am indian too, if it helps!!! At least we get to

meet new ppl. What say

I had trouble scanning my Presto card the other

day. I was so annoyed, especially after reading

everyone else’s problems with Presto in the

Shout Outs. Turns out I was trying to scan my

drug store rewards card. #PrestoProblems

Unless you know 100% that she has a boyfriend,

don’t presume. Maybe she has already dumped

him!

To Appreciative Gal: Speak for yourself. Many

women can and do take care of themselves.

I contribute nothing less than my male

counterparts at work and my salary should be

based on my performance. Signed, Someone

who can kill her own spiders.

@beautiful sexual Indian woman: I’m as

adventurous as you can imagine. Intrigued

by your Shout Out. More details are needed.

Patiently waiting

To the elegant stylish short hair blond, Nov. 8,

early morning Milton line to Union, station before

Streetsville, black jacket, poppy, leopard spotted

beige skirt, black shiny vinyl boots, 2 handbags

one of which is Coach, ball pendant earings, wide

elegant belt, violet gloves and Shades of Violet

Scarf, red manicure. with the softest & warmest

voice I’ve ever heard, saying “Sorry.” You are a

gorgeous, elegant lady. I know you’re married,

but I’ll still have the honour to have a cup of

coffee or lunch with you. if interested, pls write

me a word: silenzioso1x@hotmail.com

This is to the beautiful sexual Indian woman. I am

interested. Business hours is fine with me. Shoot

me an email to foreveryng12@gmail.com

@Appreciative Gal: Here’s a newsflash for you

there is greater variation found within each

gender than between them. Men and women are

more similar than most people think, and your

attitude is making it harder for people to realize

it. I have nothing against wanting someone to kill

spiders or hold doors open for you, but don’t go

around suggesting that it’s ok to compromise our

chance for equal salary or success in exchange for

being treated like a child. Signed, NotSoDifferent

This is a heartfelt Thank you to the two women

that stopped to help me on Wellington St W on

Sept 28 after I took a fall. You both stayed with

me to ensure I was okay, then walked with me to

Union Stn. Both missing your regular GO Trains.

Your kindness was greatly appreciated. I did

manage to get on to a GO Train that day to get

home. You are two of God’s Angels on Earth. CJG

I was rear-ended on the Gardiner on Sept. 11 @

midnight just before the Jamenson exit. I was driving

a blue Bonneville, the other vehicle was a white

van. The person drove off before I could get their

information. if you witnessed the accident, please

get in touch with me @ alesanz35@gmail.com

Well I do like spice – do you like vanilla Let me

know and who knows, the work week could get

a whole lot more interesting! girthbaby@gmail.
