EARLY START

TO BLACK FRIDAY

Black Friday got off to its earliest

start ever as American shoppers

put down their turkey and headed

straight to the malls.

Stores typically open in the wee

hours of the morning on the day

after Thanksgiving that’s named

Black Friday because it’s traditionally

when they turn a profit for the

year. In fact, generations of shoppers

have made Black Friday rituals

of going to bed early after munching

on turkey and pumpkin pie so that

they can head out to stores early the

next day.

But Black Friday openings have

crept earlier and earlier over the

past few years as stores have experimented

with ways to compete with

online rivals like Amazon.com that

can offer holiday shopping deals at

any time and on any day. And this

year, crowds gathered across the

country as stores such as Target and

Toys R Us opened yesterday evening,

while retailers from Macy’s to

Best Buy opened their doors at midnight

this morning.

About 11,000 shoppers were in

lines wrapped around Macy’s flagship

store in New York City’s Herald

Buy store after making Black Friday

purchases today.

Square when it opened.

Retailers are hoping that the earlier

openings will help boost sales

this holiday season. It is unclear

how many shoppers took advantage

of the earlier openings. But about

17% of shoppers said earlier this

month that they planned to shop at

stores that opened on Thanksgiving,

according to an International Council

of Shopping Centers-Goldman

Sachs survey of 1,000 consumers.

Overall, it’s estimated that sales

on Black Friday will be up 3.8% to

$11.4 billion (U.S.) this year.

DEADLINE DAY FOR ONTARIO

LIBERAL LEADERSHIP HOPEFULS

It’s the final day for would-be leaders

of the Ontario Liberal party to

decide whether or not to enter the

race to replace Dalton McGuinty.

There are seven contenders in

the contest to become the next premier

of Ontario after Government

Services Minister Harinder Takhar

resigned late yesterday and become

a last-minute entrant.

Four of the other leadership

candidates were ministers under

McGuinty, and also quit cabinet to

launch their bids: Kathleen Wynne,

Glenn Murray, Charles Sousa and Eric

Hoskins. The two others, Sandra Pupatello

and Gerard Kennedy, are both

former McGuinty cabinet ministers.

Kennedy left Ontario politics for

the federal scene in 2006, while

Pupatello – a Windsor native and

the only candidate from outside the

greater Toronto area – left politics

in 2011 for the private sector.

Today at 5 p.m. is the deadline to

enter the race, while midnight is the

deadline to become a member of the

Liberal party, eligible to vote for the

delegates who will actually vote directly

for the next premier.

Unlike most parties that opened

leadership conventions to all party

members and allowed online voting,

Ontario Liberals will select

about 2,000 delegates, including 16

from each riding to attend the leadership

convention.

The delegates will be selected at

local meetings in all 107 ridings the

weekend of Jan. 12, while the leadership

convention itself will be held

at Maple Leaf Gardens Jan. 25-26.

The Opposition said the winner

of the Liberal leadership won’t be

able to run away from problems that

plagued the government, including

the $1-billion eHealth scandal, a

police probe of the Ornge air ambulance

service and the hundreds of

millions spent to cancel two power

plants in Oakville and Mississauga.

“There is an unbelievable, pentup

anger with the Liberal government,”

said Progressive Conservative

energy critic Vic Fedeli.

“You can feel the anger in the

room over the Liberal government

and the fact they want them out. I

think any of these leadership candidates

are going to pay for the sins

that they created themselves.”

CANADA’S

‘BACHELOR’:

IT’S TRUE LOVE

The stars of The Bachelor Canada

are adamant: They will get married.

Brad Smith and Bianka Kamber

say they are eager to tie the knot

as soon as possible now that the TV

series that brought them together

has wrapped with a tearful finale.

The duo cuddled on a couch for a

day of media interviews yesterday,

pausing between declarations of

affection to offer pecks on the lips.

“It’s hard for a lot of people to

believe that you can have an organic

relationship on a reality television

show, but for us it was seamless,”

says Smith, his arm draped around

Kamber. “We knew by Day 4 that

this was the best decision that

we’ve ever made.”

A wedding date has not been set,

but Smith, a former wide receiver

with the Canadian Football League,

says he’s hoping it will be “ASAP.”

They say they’ve already begun

hunting for a house in Toronto

where they can start their lives. In

the meantime, Smith says he has

moved in with Kamber and her

family in Mississauga.

The first-ever edition of The

Bachelor Canada wrapped

Wednesday with the beefy former

football player presenting a

diamond-studded engagement ring

to the curvaceous brunette nurse.

In doing so, he bid farewell to

24-year-old Whitney Lee, who

floundered after meeting Smith’s

family in the finale.

“B, this is by far the easiest

decision I’ve ever had to make,”

Smith said as he got down on one

knee.

“Bianka Kamber, will you marry

me?”

“Yes,” she said immediately, later

letting out an exuberant “Whoo!”

REVIEW: LIFE OF PI

By ANDREW PARKER

CRITICIZE THIS!

Director Ang Lee brings Yann

Martel’s best-selling novel Life of

Pi to glorious and stunning life on

the big screen, in one of the most

sumptuous and intricately written

stories of the year.

Young Pi Patel (Sharma) gets

separated from his family in a

shipwreck off the coast of the

Philippines as they are moving

their family zoo to Canada. The film

focuses on the young man’s fight for

survival in a boat full of animals as

the older Pi relates his story in the

present to a Montreal writer.

(20th CENTURY FOX)

Dir: Ang Lee

Starring: Irrfan Khan, Suraj Sharma

Lee’s visuals are some of the best

of the year, but the surprisingly dexterous

script that conceals the film’s

biggest surprises is the real winner

here, along with Sharma’s excellent

lead performance.

Lee’s film never tries to outthink

the audience, and the film’s climactic

rumination on the nature of

storytelling and faith can be easily

accepted by anyone.

Don’t let the slow start fool you:

the emotional power of this film can

blindside even the most cynical of

moviegoers. It’s undoubtedly one of

the best films of the year.

GO LOUNGE

1718 QUEEN ST. W. 416-588-7529

WORDS: ROBYN URBACK

PHOTOS: ALEX DUNCAN

Go Lounge is Parkdale's very own board

game café. Opening yesterday to much

community anticipation, the new spot,

which squeaked in right before the

Parkdale moratorium on new restaurants

and bars, will offer over 300 games,

plus panini, coffee and best of all: table

availability.

As good as Snakes and Lattes is, the

caveat there always seems to be that if

you want to drop by during a busy time,

you better be prepared to wait. Granted,

Go Lounge is only in its first week, but

the availability of tables seems to be in

stark contrast to what you'll find in the

Annex. That’s enticing to those who

abhor a lineup.

Alisa Sadler and Samantha Lerner

are the women behind the shop, both

of whom abandoned their former positions

to venture out to open this café.

“We really liked the idea of Snakes and

Lattes,” Sadler says, “but we wanted to

do something different, something that

wouldn't necessarily be in competition."

For that reason, the women initially

looked to the east end (Leslieville, in

particular) for a spot, but decided on

Parkdale when this specific space became

available.

“It just felt really cosy,” Lerner says.

“And we’ve got traffic from both Queen

and Roncesvalles, and a little more activity

during the day.”

The space certainly has a cosy vibe,

with warm exposed brick, salvaged

wood and glowing, hanging lamps. The

tables have been specifically designed for

optimal gameplay, and the back nook

area seems perfect for a small group.

To drink, Go offers coffee made with

Detour espresso, plus teas, pops and

juices, with Circles and Squares bites on

the side. The café also features panini

specials including brie, pear and walnut

($7); and turkey, gouda and avocado

($8), which each come with kettle chips

or a salad on the side. A liquor licence is

in the works.

Unlike Snakes and Lattes, Go Lounge

will not be charging cover. “We're a little

more intimate, more casual,” Lerner says,

noting their collection of games is considerably

smaller than Snakes and Lattes’.

“It's not only about the games – you can

just come here and hang out.”

The women admit they don't know

how to play all of the games that they

have in stock, but they expect to learn the

ins and outs of each within a few weeks.

Their collection includes classic games

(Monopoly, Life, Scrabble), party games

(Trivial Pursuit, Pictionary, Taboo),

strategy games (Catan) and kids’ games.

There is even a vintage Bop It on one of

the shelves.

Go Lounge also has a classic Twister

board, and if you stop by the café before

word really gets out, you might actually

find room to play it.

HOCKEY’S GREY CUP?

The Argos and Stampeders fight it out for

the Grey Cup Sunday in the 100th

anniversary of the big football game. But

originally, the Grey Cup wasn’t intended

to be associated with football at all.

Governor General Albert Grey’s intent,

when he had the Grey Cup made, was to

hand it out to the Senior Amateur Hockey

champions (pro teams were already

competing for the Stanley Cup).

BROKEN CALCULATOR?

While this is the 100th anniversary of the

Grey Cup, the first time it was handed out

was 1909. That’s not a miscalculation;

WWI caused a three-year hiatus for

Canada’s top football prize, and after the

war, it was all but forgotten about – until

finally being revived in 1920. WWII didn’t

stop it from being handed out, with

military teams competing for the honour.

EDMONTON MEAT PLANT SUSPENDED

EDMONTON – The Canadian Food

Inspection Agency has suspended

the licence of an Edmonton meatprocessing

plant over concerns for food

safety. The decision involving Capital

Packers Inc. came yesterday.

The CFIA says adequate controls

for food safety “are not being reliably

implemented in the facility on a

consistent basis.”

The agency also says the company

hasn’t corrected deficiencies previously

identified through CFIA inspections.

It has placed all products at the

plant in northeast Edmonton under

detention and control.

The agency says it is investigating

whether products shipped from the

plant pose potential risks to consumers,

particularly related to listeriosis, a

foodborne illness that can cause high

fever, severe headache, neck stiffness

and nausea.

The CFIA has already announced

the recall of two products, saying ham

sausages produced at the plant were

being pulled from shelves because of

concerns about possible listeriosis.

QUEBEC, ALBERTA TO SHIP OIL EAST?

HALIFAX – The premiers of Alberta and

proposal stoked tensions in the West.

Alison Redford and Pauline Marois

left a meeting in a downtown Halifax

hotel side-by-side late yesterday,

announcing they will strike working

groups to explore the possible

economic benefits and environmental

effects of the project.

“We have agreed that there is

some very good opportunity for us

to exchange technical information

around economic development,

the environment and the technical

development of resources so that we

can have an informed conversation,”

Redford said.

“I think what is really important

today is that we have acknowledged

that there might be opportunity. We

are not concluding what those will

be, but we are sharing some very

important information.”

Marois said she will travel to Alberta

to discuss the development further,

likely after Christmas.

biddy – and don’t have a good sense

of balance any more. Don’t get dizzy

looking down at that yellow stripe!

As for the rest of us – we’re okay.

How about you leave your mothering

instincts at home? Mr Smacky

Felicidades to my friends YC & LC

for their new baby girl!! Adorable as

can be! I am excited for you both!!

Love you guys! Tia M & tio R :)

@miscbrah: I agree – fat people

take up too much space! Worst is

during TTC rush hour. Fat people

should only be allowed to ride the

subway outside busy hours so that

we don’t suffer. -Triver

@Microplagiarist: Well, this world

spins on the same things. So it’s no

surprise we matched. Good luck

finding what you are looking for!

@ DoubleStandard: Reading Fifty

Shades offends you?? Maybe you

should get your wife/girlfriend to

pick it up and give it a go, maybe

then your nerves could be calmed,

or at least titillated!! I hardly think

you can compare a novel, even

one with sexually explicit details,

to that of a porn mag. And I am

pretty sure there are plenty of men

reading a couple pages of Grey and

loving it. I hardly think any of the

ladies enjoying Fifty Shades are

undressing you with their eyes as

they devour the naughty, steamy

parts of the book. They are too busy

minding their own business, and so

should you. LJ

This is for my new friend Judy who

rides the 755 train from Richmond

Hill. Up until this morning, I had

no idea what a big twit was called.

Thanks! Kept me laughing all day!

To the few individuals who get on

at Guelph at 6:14 in the morning:

please keep your loud voices and

laughter down. Most of us are still

half asleep and your piercing loud

voices make our heads hurt. Be a

little more considerate and let us

enjoy the peace and quiet of the

morning a little longer. - Sleepy

To the person who sent from

everyone. Please speak for yourself.

You must be ignorant as well to

speak for everyone. I agree with

MISCBRAH not that they should pay

twice but they should understand

the uncomfortable ride they make

for the other person. People

complain about smoking, smells,

eating; complaining about being

uncomfortable from someone’s fat

suffocating them is understandable.

I’m not going to dance around

people’s insecurities which is all this

is, so if you have those problems,

hit a treadmill! -don’t speak for me!

I knew that the Indian FWB was a

guy and look at the amount of fools

(men) who fell for that. Did anyone

else notice that quite a few of those

“men” who replied to the Indian

woman looking for an FWB had

already sent a Shout Out of their

own for an FWB? You guys must be

hard up. And ladies, the men who

post a Shout Out looking for an

FWB are bottom feeders. I’ve met

a few out of curiosity and all I have

to say is “WOW” and not in a good

way. @Not desperate at all

Hey Brown Girl, Thanks for the

warm welcome to the GO. You

know I always prefer leather over

lace. Love your Black Ops Man!

@miscbrah: Beauty is only skin

deep, ugly is to the bones, your

humanity towards others leads me

to believe not only were you beaten

with an ugly stick, you fell outta the

ugly tree and hit every ugly branch

on the way down. Justin

Mr. Double Standard: Have you

read or opened the book, Fifty

Shades? If you had you would know

that there are no pictures, so I don’t

see the comparison to Playboy

magazine??? or have you been

reading over peoples’ Fifty Shades

over their shoulders on the GO?

Now that’s “disgusting!”

I feel like the GO would be a great

place to meet ppl/get dates. I’m

a cute guy but don’t seem to get

any looks/smiles/2ndtakes. What’s

the deal with women on the GO? -

thedude

Double Standard: Comparing

Playboy Magazine to Fifty Shades

of Grey, really? The last time I

checked, there were no pictures

of unrealistic naked people on the

cover or inside of our book. Unless

we were reading aloud, I don’t see

what you’re complaining about. I

suggest you pick up a copy to give

to your partner to read because

you obviously haven’t been laid in

a while. Signed, Anastasia

Darn, did I miss the Fifty Shades

of Grey version with pictures? Just

finished Bared to you ;) -best of

Dear dead end ... In case you don’t

think I know this is for me, you are

mistaken. I have known for weeks.

This needs to stop. I’m not sure why

you would think I like you when

I’ve told you that I am in a serious

relationship. What part of that do

you not understand?? You keep

trying to interfere in my relationship

and it’s not going to work. Please

leave me alone. And by the way ...

You were never in the friend zone.

Only the work acquaintance zone.

Why would i care if you move?!?

get it? Got it? Good!!

I would love to meet a virtuous,

intelligent or educated woman,

34-44, of Western or Eastern

European descent. I am a faithful,

one-woman man who likes movies,

travelling, music, theatre art,

dining, etc. I am a 45-year-old,

caring, professionally employed

black man with a love for family.

benevolent783@gmail.com

Sorry but I agree that if you know

in your heart, after trying to make

it work, that you no longer want to

be with your partner, you should

part ways. I have a few friends who

are divorced, all have children,

and their kids have adjusted. I

am a child from unhappy parents

and I wish my parents would have

divorced when I was younger. My

childhood was unsettled. And I

was left with the guilt that they

were forced to remain together

miserable because of me – tell me

what child wants that?! Signed

isupportthosewantingtoleave

Miscbrah: You are very ignorant

and cruel for making the comments

that you did about people who are

overweight. Calling them plague is

wrong on so many levels. Referring

to them as abnormal makes me

wonder what you are? I am not

overweight but I have many friends

who have medical conditions that

makes it impossible to maintain

their weight. If you don’t want to sit

beside them, that’s your choice but

calling them names is just wrong.

Shame on you GO. Not providing

credit to monthly pass holders, when

delay is within your control. How

do you promote service guarantee,

when you are not being fair to the

23K who are/will still use the monthly

pass till the end of the year? Not

much better for Presto card holder,

as you need to fill out a claim online.

Guess they can’t keep us all happy :(

Dear Double Standard: four letters:

STFU. I will read my 50 shades-type

novel or “porn” where I please.

If you don’t like it, fund me for an

eReader. There are hundreds of

smut novels that you are unaware

of. That one is just scratching the

surface, baby! -CG

Re: T.O. Barbershop Haircut: So the

Muslim guy was not comfortable

cutting a woman’s hair. BIG deal. He

was nice enough to call the woman

back and tell her he found someone

else in the shop for her, but she

refused? Why? Because she wanted

THAT person to cut her hair? Get

real. And she took the “case” to the

Human Rights Tribunal? This lady

needs to get a life. What a waste.

I’m a Caucasian, non-religious

female, and my response to her

would be “Go friggin get your hair

cut somewhere else and stop

wasting people’s time.” - FiFi FoFum

To all Bramalea GO riders who

drive to the station. I am cut off

every morning by those who wait

till the last minute to move to the

right lane to turn into the station,

and at night, I wait in the far left

lane to make a left off Steeles on

to Bramalea and my row moves

so slowly because many cars drive

ahead and sneak into the 2nd

turning lane. Can we not have some

respect and drive properly???
