BYELECTIONS SEEN AS TEST OF WYNNE’S LEADERSHIPPolls are open until 9 p.m. tonight in five Ontario byelectionsthat are seen as a test of Kathleen Wynne’s six months aspremier.The Liberals had held the seats in Windsor, London, Ottawaand two Toronto ridings until five cabinet ministers – includingformer premier Dalton McGuinty – resigned.The votes are considered a sort of mini-election, a chancefor the minority Liberal government to see if voters holdWynne responsible for issues like the gas plant scandal thathappened on McGuinty’s watch.The votes are also crucial for Progressive ConservativeLeader Tim Hudak, who observers say must take at leastone of the five ridings today to hold off challenges to hisleadership.The Tories haven’t elected anyone in Toronto since 1999,and hope that will change with deputy mayor Doug Holyday astheir candidate in Etobicoke-Lakeshore.The Canadian PressPOLICE GUIDELINES QUESTIONEDAFTER YATIM SHOOTING DEATHThe use of police force in theshooting death of a youngman in Toronto has promptedOntario’s ombudsman toquestion whether it is timefor the provincial governmentto review police deescalationguidelines.Andre Marin said yesterdayhe has ordered a “caseassessment” to determine ifa full-fledged investigationinto those guidelines is necessaryin the wake of SammyYatim’s death.The 18-year-old, whodied Saturday morning afterreceiving multiple gunshotwounds during an “interaction”with police, was expectedto be laid to rest today.The incident, which wasMOSCOW — NationalSecurity Agency leakerEdward Snowden left thetransit zone of a Moscowairport and entered Russiaafter authorities grantedhim temporary asylum, hislawyer said today.Anatoly Kucherena saidthat Snowden’s whereaboutswill be kept secretfor security reasons.The T:7.6” former NSAcaptured on surveillance andcellphone video, has sparkedpublic outrage over policeuse of force.Marin said his office willexamine the direction andguidelines provided by theMinistry of CommunitySafety and CorrectionalServices to Ontario’s policefor de-escalating situationsthat could result in the useof force.He said the Ministry hasthe power to set standardsfor the province’s policeservices.“The latest shooting by aToronto police officer raisesthe question of whether it istime for the Ministry to directOntario police servicessystems analyst was stuckat Moscow’s Sheremetyevoairport since his arrivalfrom Hong Kong on June 23.The U.S. has demandedRussia send Snowden hometo face prosecution forespionage, but PresidentVladimir Putin dismissedthe request.Putin had said thatSnowden could receive asylumin Russia on conditionon how to de-escalate situationsof conflict before theylead to the use of fatal force,”he said in a statement.Marin added that the ombudsman’scase assessmentwill not affect the ongoing investigationby the province’sSpecial Investigations Unit,but his office will monitorany issues relating to policeco-operation with the SIU.Police chief Bill Blair, however,suggested Marin’s monitoringis unnecessary.‘’All 22 witness officershave given their statements– there’s full co-operationwith the SIU investigation,’’Blair told CP24 yesterdayevening.The Canadian PressSNOWDEN ALLOWED TO LEAVEMOSCOW AIRPORT AND ENTER RUSSIAhe stops leaking U.S. secrets.Kucherena has saidSnowden accepted thecondition.The Guardian newspaperyesterday published a newreport on U.S. intelligencegatheringbased on informationfrom Snowden, butKucherena said the materialwas provided beforeSnowden promised to stopleaking.

MOVIESALREADY IN THEATRESWEEKENDROTTEN TOMATOES: 67% IMDB: 7.3/1001.08.2013 P. 09(ENTERTAINMENT ONE)Dir: Baltasar KormákurStarring: Denzel Washington, MarkWahlberg, Paula Patton, Bill Paxton,James Marsden, Fred Ward, EdwardJames OlmosBy ANDREW PARKERCriticize This!2 Guns isn’t much morethan a pleasing summerafternoon or evening atthe movies, but it’s a reallyrefreshing change from thebombastic blockbusterswe’ve been getting. It’s awitty, charismatic actionthrillerthat gets by on asnappy premise and a pairof well-cast leads.Bobby Trench (DenzelWashington) and StigStigman (Mark Wahlberg)have just pulled off a heistthat they thought would ripa few million dollars off ofa well-connected Mexicandrug lord (Edward JamesOlmos) from a small creditunion in a sleepy bordertown. There are only threeproblems: There wasactually over $40 million;neither realized the otherwas an agent working forgovernment agencies andthat both were being doublecrossed;and that they juststole money earmarked fora CIA slush fund.Adapted from the graphicnovel by Steven Grant, thestory has a lot more incommon with an ElmoreLeonard novel than the TonyScott-styled film it looks likeon the surface. Icelandicdirector Baltasar Kormakurkeeps the action coming at awell managed pace, allowinga lot of room for charactermoments, plot twists, andpleasant surprises.Washington andWahlberg look like they’rehaving a lot of fun with thematerial, which is somethingkind of rare from thesetwo. Washington handlesthe straight man role quitewell, and loves to make itknown to his partner justwho the brains behind theREVIEW: 2 GUNSoperation is. Wahlberg, onthe other hand, hasn’t beenthis charming in a longtime, and his self-aware andsometimes purposefullysilly alpha male shtick is oneof the film’s biggest assets.The supporting castalso gets solid boosts fromOlmos (who has been awayfrom major studio films forfar too long), Paula Pattonas Washington’s partnerand love interest, JamesMarsden as Stig’s superior,and a gleefully deranged BillPaxton as the CIA spook hoton the trail of our heroes.The story itself isn’tparticularly memorableand some of the twists arepretty obvious, but there’ssomething to be said for awell-made film that simplywants to entertain. 2 Guns isexactly that kind of film.Patti Perret / Universal Pictures / APTHE WOLVERINE (20th CENTURY FOX)Dir: James MangoldStarring: Hugh Jackman, Hiroyuki Sanada, Famke Janssen, Will Yun LeeNorth American Gross to Date: $55MROTTEN TOMATOES: 86% IMDB: 8.0/10THE CONJURING (WARNER BROS.)Dir: James WanStarring: Vera Farmiga, Patrick Wilson, Ron Livingston, Lili Taylor, Joey KingNorth American Gross to Date: $83.9MROTTEN TOMATOES: 75% IMDB: 7.8/10DESPICABLE ME 2 (UNIVERSAL)Dir: Pierre Coffin & Chris RenaudStarring: Steve Carell, Kristen Wiig, Miranda Cosgrove, Russell BrandNorth American Gross to Date: $55.8MFor more movie newsand reviews, visitcriticizethis.caBen Rothstein / 20th Century Fox / APMichael Tacket / New Line Cinema / Warner Bros.

Sunnyside Beach, Toronto, July, 1924Photo from Wikimedia Commonspeace and happiness for men and women tryingto rebuild a shattered world. The decade saw agreat resurgence in building, economic growth,outrageous fashions and dance crazes such asthe Charleston. Sunnyside was there through itall as a place of amusement, leisure Lethe-likeforgetfulness. This era of peace and prosperitycame to an abrupt end, however, with the stockmarket crash of October 1929.The 1930s were a period of different needsfor society as 25% of the workforce became unemployed,and a sense of hopelessness drainedaway much of the exuberance of the previousdecade. Sunnyside suffered during this period,exemplified by the shelving of plans, begun in1927, for the Palace Pier in 1932 due to lack offunding. It was finally completed in 1941. Thepark itself took on a shabbier appearance withonly minimal efforts to maintain the boardwalkand some of the rides. There was no lessneed for distractions from the difficulties ofthe Great Depression, and the swimming pool,rides, amusements and vendors all contributedto peoples’ desire to escape, however briefly,from unemployment, foreclosures and hunger.The 1940s were a dark period as war engulfedthe world. Sunnyside took on a new roleNewmarketON1844.10 GOTR-13-007THE15.75x1.25.indd 1SUNNYSIDEBy PAT GRADYfor tonight NewspaperThere were many famous amusement parksin the U.S.A. in the early 20th century, suchas Coney Island in New York and the Boardwalkin Atlantic City. In modern times, many Torontonianswill have also enjoyed day trips toparks such as Canada’s Wonderland, The Ex andthe Toronto Islands. Few, however, know that atone time our very own lakeshore was the site ofa world-renowned amusement park. I am talkingabout Sunnyside Amusement Park, whichstood many years ago on a site where only theSunnyside pool remains today. It was a vast, gloriouspark with a boardwalk filled with vendorsoffering all kinds of treats and games, and someof the fastest and scariest roller-coasters of theday. There were also concert venues, sportingevents and more.Planning for Sunny began in 1909, but theseplans were interrupted by the outbreak of warin 1914. Sunnyside eventually opened on June28, 1922, with the Sunnyside bathing pavilion,where bathers could change to go swimming inthe lake. There were also canoeing facilities, atea terrace and a lakefront promenade. Mike Fileynotes in his book I Remember Sunnyside thatR. Home Smith, chairman of the Toronto HarbourCommission, foresaw a great future forthe city: “Toronto is upon the eve of the greatestdevelopment in its history. I am quite sure if weonly try to rise to it we will be in reality – whatis now only in promise – a truly great city.”Filey goes on to note that the mayor of Toronto,Alfred Maguire, made the following optimisticprediction about Sunnyside’s opening: “Thefuture of Toronto is indeed bright; when futuregenerations see this splendid development andenjoy its privileges they must declare that themen who conceived it had vision.”In 1925, due to the coldness of the lake overthe previous two summers, the Sunnyside poolwas opened. The pool was 300 feet and nicknamed“The Tank.” It could accommodate 2,000swimmers and was considered at the time to bethe largest outdoor pool in the world. The parkhelped put Toronto on the map as it began totake shape. There were attractions for all levelsof society.One of the main attractions at Sunnyside inthe 1920’s was the roller-coaster, built in 1923,named The Sunnyside Flyer. Designed by A.J.Miller, it was constructed with a wood frameand advertised as having the “dippiest dips” onthe continent. Coaster cars reached speeds of100 km/h when coming home. Another featurewas the Easter Parade, where men would weartheir finest suits and women completed theiroutfits with fancy hats.The 1920’s were a period of social reconstructionafter the crucible of WWI. Sunnysidecertainly contributed to the restoration ofas a meeting place for young lovers. Swimmingin the Tank was a pleasant pastime, as were therides such as the Sunnyside Flyer. Sunnysidetrain station, located across from the BoulevardClub and above the tracks running parallel totoday’s Lake Shore Boulevard, witnessed manytearful partings as men left loved ones for partsunknown.In 1948, plans the city developed for a muchneedednew highway to run from the HumberRiver to Woodbine Avenue required the divisionof the land occupied by Sunnyside. Necessitydictated that Sunnyside could not surviveas Lake Shore Boulevard took up vast swaths ofland needed for the park to remain viable.There are remnants still visible today ofSunnyside. The massive pool and its buildingsurvived the expropriation, and can be seenon the south side of Lakeshore Boulevard. ThePalace Pier also survives, and it still functionsas a dance hall and entertainment centre. Thereis also a long strip of park bordering the lake,which facilitates children and adults on thosehot summer days. A piece of Sunnyside historysurvives in Disneyland in the form of the KingArthur Carousel, which was dismantled andshipped there in 1954.As we move towards the future, wonderingwhat to do with our waterfront, perhapswe should look to the past for inspiration anda warning about the dangers of overzealous development.Perhaps R. Home Smith said it best:“I am quite sure if we only try to rise to it wewill be in reality – what is now only in promise –a truly great city.”Have an opinion about this story?

ROGERSCUP TOSERVEUP FOURLEGENDSAndre AgassiHenny Ray Abrams / Associated PressJohn McEnroeMichel Spingler / Associated PressBy NISEAN LORDEfor tonight NewspaperThis year’s Rogers Legends Cup promises to sliceup more than just a powerful serve. Four formerNo. 1 tennis superstars will show the world theycan still backhand, overhead and dropshot likeit’s hot as they play in the final weekend of the2013 Rogers Cup, beginning Friday, Aug. 9.The three-day event will feature former prosJim Courier, John McEnroe, Andy Roddick and14-time grand slam champion Pete Sampras,names that would make even Serena Williamsdrop her racket in awe.The four Legends will play a total of threematches, alongside the stars of the Women’sTennis Association at the Premier 5 event, withpricing included in the regular Rogers Cup ticket.“This is a concept we introduced two yearsago and it was a huge success,” said Karl Hale,tournament director of Rogers Toronto. “Weare always asking our fans what they want andlooking at ways to enhance the experience forthem. They absolutely loved the opportunity tosee both the top WTA players and the Legendsside by side so we are bringing in some newplayers, a different format and some uniquesurprises to make it even better this timearound.”Most of the funding that helped subsidize theevent was provided by the Ontario government’sCelebrate Ontario program – an annual programdesigned to drive tourism and help boost theprovince’s economy. The program helps festivalsand events across the province enhance theirproducts to attract a greater audience.“Our government is proud to partner with theRogers Legends Cup to provide opportunitiesto showcase the world’s top athletes here athome,” said Michael Chan, minister of Tourism,Culture and Sport. “Signature sporting eventslike this one help attract tourists, create jobsand promote Ontario as a premier internationalsporting destination.”It has been under a year since Roddick retiredand 13 years since Courier said his goodbyes.Nearly a decade has passed since Sampras’semotional farewell and a whopping 33 yearssince McEnroe’s famous Wimbeldon finalsshowdown against Jimmy Connors. If McEnroeconducts any of his infamous tirades againstthe umpire, it will solely be in jest. Years inthe broadcast booth have mellowed him out.Slightly.But with a combined 26 Grand Slam singlestrophies between the fantastic four, they arestill amongst the most popular and respectedplayers in the history of the sport.“I’m extremely excited to come back toToronto and be a part of Rogers Legends Cup,”said Sampras, who believes the Wimbledonmen’s singles record he shares with RogerFederer is safe – for now. “I have really goodmemories from the years I played the Canadiantournament as the fans were always incrediblysupportive and the event is one of the best in theworld. Combined with the WTA matches, this isgoing to be really entertaining tennis and I’mlooking forward to it.”They are still amongst the most popularand respected players in the history of the sport.Another enhancement being made for RogersCup 2013 is a new and improved Centre Courtstadium configuration to allow for a moreintimate and exciting experience for fans.With 29 rows of seating, each and every fanwill experience the energy of an up-close andpersonal atmosphere. For as little as $25, fanscan get closer to the action in the lower bowlseating, which has a capacity of 800.For those who’d prefer to wander through theoutside courts without purchasing a seat insidethe stadium, grounds passes will be availablefrom Monday to Thursday, starting at $20.Rogers Cup presented by National Bank is aTennis Canada owned and operated world-classtournament celebrating its 121st anniversaryof the women’s event from August 3-11 atRexall Centre on the York University campus inToronto.For more info or to purchase tickets,visit www.rogerscup.comor call 1-877-2TENNIS (283-6647) ext. 4333.Andy RoddickJim CourierCharles Krupa / Associated PressFelipe Dana / Associated Press
