EDITORIAL: A responsible approach to legal pot?

Toronto Sun - 2 hours 8 min ago

The world was watching as Canada legalized marijuana on Wednesday.

We are just the second country in the world following Uruguay to legalize the “demon weed” as a recreational substance and the first major economy in the world to do so.

But it looks like it was almost a bigger deal to the rest of the world than it was to us.

“People in Canada are cheering, enduring long lines and honking their car horns in support as the country’s first marijuana dispensaries open their doors Wednesday,” read the opening line to CNN’s online coverage of the much-anticipated event.

You could probably find a few people in select locations cheering and one or two people honking their horns, but this portrayal of Canada as a country of desperate pot-heads is hardly accurate (71% have no plans to smoke pot now that it’s legal according to a Nanos Research poll for CTV and Ipsos Reid found just two in 10 Canadians say they use cannabis.

Yes, there were the stories of the first legal sales occurring at midnight in Newfoundland and Labrador. And, sure, there were some pot parties held to make the occasion.

But there weren’t people lining up around the block like when a new iPhone goes on sale.

While it doesn’t make for sensational news, perhaps Canadians seem to be approaching the legalization of pot in, well a very Canadian manner.

( function() { pnLoadVideo( "videos", "q_4acoCyH8A", "pn_video_763932", "", "", {"is_mobile":""} ); } )();

Instead of reefer madness, we learned 79-year-old former PM Brian Mulroney had joined the board of a marijuana company, and everyone seems to agree there’s a pot of gold at the end of the weed rainbow.

Meanwhile, the rollout of legalization has been far from ideal and plenty of as yet unanswered questions.

There are too few police officers who have received the specialized training to deal with marijuana-impaired drivers, for example.

As we noted in a previous editorial, provincial education campaigns have been sorely lacking. There are misconceptions about the wisdom of driving while stoned (not wise, and illegal) and about the health repercussions (smoking too much can harm you).

In the weeks ahead, let’s hope our cities, provinces and the feds make wise revisions to their policies as they learn from trial and error.

Chookagian-Eye flyweight bout added to UFC 231 card in Toronto

Toronto Sun - 2 hours 12 min ago

Two of the UFC’s top-ranked fighters in the women’s flyweight division have been added to the card in Toronto in December.

Third-ranked Katlyn Chookagian (11-1-0) will take on No. 6 Jessica Eye (12-6-0, 1 NC) at UFC 231, the third women’s bout on the event headlined by a featherweight title fight between champion Max Holloway and top contender Brian Ortega. The Chookagian-Eye fight hasn’t officially been announced but was confirmed by a UFC source.

Also at UFC 231 at the Scotiabank Arena on Dec. 8, Joanna Jedrzejczyk will take on Valentina Shevchenko for the women’s flyweight title while third-ranked Claudia Gadelha will fight No. 11 Nina Ansaroff in a women’s strawweight tilt.

Chookagian, a 29-year-old from Quakertown, Pa., is riding a three-fight win streak and is 4-1 since joining the UFC in 2016. She is coming off a unanimous decision win over Canadian Alexis Davis at the UFC on Fox card in Calgary in July.

Eye, a 32-year-old from Rootstown, Ohio, is considered one of the top strikers in women’s MMA. She’s won two in a row — over Kalindra Faria and most recently Jessica-Rose Clark, in Singapore — after previously losing four straight.

Six Canadians will also fight on the UFC 231 card.

TRAIK-EOTOMY: Connor McDavid has been one-man show for Oilers

Toronto Sun - 2 hours 23 min ago

I was reminded of last season’s Hart Trophy debate while watching the Connor McDavids come from behind and defeat the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday.

You read that right. I’m not calling them the Edmonton Oilers anymore. After all, this isn’t a team. It’s a one-man show.

And frankly, it’s embarrassing — to McDavid and the Oilers and the rest of the NHL.

Years from now we’re going to look back at the 2017-18 season, a year when McDavid finished with 108 points — six more than the next player — and wonder how he wasn’t named MVP. How he wasn’t even a top-three finalist (for the record, I voted him third, which looking back was far too low).

The reason, of course, was that the rest of McDavid’s team was awful. Even with McDavid scoring 41 goals and leading the league in points, Edmonton missed the playoffs. The argument was that it’s difficult to be named “most valuable to your team” when your team is a loser.

Which brings us to this year.

McDavid’s team has scored 10 goals. Four of them have come off his stick and he has assisted on another five. That’s 90% of his team’s total offence. At the same time, his team is 2-2-0.

Take him off the ice and his team doesn’t score, never mind win.

It’s a big reason why McDavid’s ice time jumped from 21:33 last season to 23:34 — most among forwards — this year. Patrick Kane is the only other forward averaging more than 23 minutes. If Oilers head coach Todd McLellan could, he’d have his star centre on the ice for all 60 minutes.

And yet, the team needs more than just McDavid.

It needs Leon Draisaitl, who is being paid as a No. 1 centre, to generate offence with Milan Lucic and Kailer Yamamoto. And it needs Ryan Strome, who is still searching for his first point, to provide secondary scoring with Jesse Puljujarvi and Drake Caggiula.

( function() { pnLoadVideo( "videos", "ih5u32aHklk", "pn_video_195102", "", "", {"is_mobile":""} ); } )();

“You look at a team like Pittsburgh where they have the (Jake) Guentzels of the world and the (Conor) Shearys, and all these supporting players that complement the skill and they make Sid (Crosby) a better player as much as Sid makes them a better player,” McDavid told me at the NHL Player Media Tour in September. “I think that’s what you need throughout your lineup. You need guys to help each other and feed off each other and to have that chemistry.”

So far, that’s not happening.

And if it continues, McDavid might still win another scoring title. But he won’t be able to drag the team into the playoffs.

PLAYER SAFETY

Love the message that the Department of Player Safety sent to the rest of the NHL in how it handled the Michael Matheson hit on Elias Pettersson.

For once, no one was asking whether it was a headshot or what the initial point of contact was or whether Pettersson should have protected himself. Forget all that.

Pettersson was in a vulnerable position and Matheson exploited it. That has to stop. And a two-game suspension for a first-time offender might go a long way in helping that mission along.

SPEED THRILLS

This just in: big and physical is not as intimidating as small, skilled and fast.

The Los Angeles Kings realized this harsh lesson in a 4-1 loss to the Maple Leafs earlier this week.

Gone are the days when teams like the Bruins could throw their weight around and hang onto the puck. No one is delivering body checks anymore.

Well, at least not the kind that used to land you on one of Don Cherry’s Rock’em Sock’em VHS videos.

CALDER CONTENDER

If you were to tell me that there’s a rookie defenceman with four goals and seven points in his first six games, I’d guess you were talking about No. 1 overall pick Rasmus Dahlin — not Ottawa’s Maxime Lajoie, a fifth-rounder in 2016.

How surprising has Lajoie’s offensive outburst been? A year ago, he scored just one goal and 15 points in the AHL.

THIS AND THAT

Most underrated player in the NHL: Carolina’s Sebastian Aho, who is third in scoring with 12 points in eight games. Most overrated is Draisaitl, whose $8.5-million cap hit is part of the reason why the William Nylander negotiations are dragging on and on … The Mikhail Sergachev for Jonathan Drouin trade isn’t looking as lopsided as it did a year ago. After five games, Drouin has a pair of goals and an assist, while Sergachev has two assists but is averaging the least amount of ice time among Tampa Bay defencemen … Anaheim is leading the Pacific Division, but with a league-low 23.8 shots per game, there’s no question the Ducks miss Nick Ritchie, who like Nylander is awaiting a new deal … Forget Taylor Hall for Adam Larsson. The worst trade in the last five years has to be Chicago sending Artemi Panarin to Columbus for Brandon Saad, who is expected to be a healthy scratch for Thursday’s game against Arizona.

DUCHENE NEEDS TO SCORE

Who scores first: Sidney Crosby, Nazem Kadri, Nikolaj Ehlers or Matt Duchene?

Better yet, who needs to score first? The answer is Duchene, who’s coming off a 23-goal season and becomes a UFA at the end of this year.

With Panarin, Mark Stone, Jordan Eberle, Jeff Skinner, Joe Pavelski and many others also potentially hitting the market, it’s important for Duchene to show he can still find the back of the net.

CALDER CONTUSIONS

First Elias Pettersson. Now Brady Tkachuk. The NHL is less than a month old and already two of the most exciting rookies — and potential Calder Trophy candidates — are out long term with injuries.

Pettersson has five goals and eight points in five games, while Tkachuk has three goals and six points in four games. Getting hurt is the unfortunate part of the game.

At the same time, If I’m Dahlin, I’m covering myself in bubble wrap.

AND ANOTHER THING

Check back in April, but the Dougie Hamilton and Micheal Ferland trade for Noah Hanifin and Elias Lindholm is working out for both sides so far … Someone forgot to tell Henrik Lundqvist that the rebuilding New York Rangers are supposed to be “losing for (Jack) Hughes.” After five games, he’s got a 1.99 goals-against average and a .939 save percentage … The Blackhawks knew they would be without Corey Crawford for the start of the season. And yet, they still went out and acquired Cam Ward, who after five games has a 4.07 goals-against average and a .879 save percentage. Why? … Best goalie tandem so far is John Gibson and Ryan Miller, who have combined for a .940 save percentage … Worst goalie tandem is Detroit’s Jimmy Howard and Jonathan Bernier, who have combined for a .855 save percentage.

KOVALCHUK STILL HAS GAME

Ilya Kovalchuk didn’t hang around for questions following a 4-1 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs on Monday. Instead, he let his play do the talking.

With two goals and two assists in six games, the Los Angeles Kings forward’s three-year, $18.75 million gamble appears to be a success.

“I think it’s early in the process,” said head coach John Stevens. “I think he’s a high-end talent, a big man who’s got some really good skills. I don’t know if anything’s really surprised me about him. I thought he was more of a shooter, but he’s a really high possession guy who makes a lot of plays. If anything, that might have been a little bit of a surprise.”

( function() { pnLoadVideo( "videos", "Z4p6wjpLo0k", "pn_video_281441", "", "", {"is_mobile":""} ); } )();

Those five years that Kovalchuk spent in the KHL did not appear to hurt his game. He doesn’t look slow or like he’s lost a step. He’s not hanging out on the perimeter. Playing on the Kings’ top line with Anze Kopitar and Alex Iafallo, the 35-year-old has fired 21 shots — most of them from in close — and recorded a plus-2 rating.

“He doesn’t try to score anything pretty,” said defenceman Drew Doughty. “He just tries to put the puck in the net. That’s what we need.”

The only thing he hasn’t done is helped a dreadful power play that had gone 0-for-21. Then again, with a team-leading 21 shots on net, don’t expect that trend to last too long.

McDAVID OR MATTHEWS … OR CROSBY?

Where does Sidney Crosby fit into the McDavid or Auston Matthews debate?

Or Alex Ovechkin, for that matter.

Yes, it’s a young man’s game. But the so-called old guys aren’t exactly being pushed out onto an ice floe. The last time we checked, it was Crosby and Ovechkin — not McDavid and Matthews — who had won the Conn Smythe Trophy during the last three Stanley Cup finals.

Did we forget that Ovechkin won the Rocket Richard Trophy last year? Or that prior to last season, Crosby had finished in the top three in scoring in each of the previous five years?

Crosby, who is still searching for his first goal — he’s been a notoriously slow starter — has four assists in five games. Ovechkin has four goals and seven points in five games.

And it’s not just them. While 10 of the top 20 scorers are under the age of 25, the leader board is filled with veterans who haven’t lost a step. Here are five over the age of 30 that could challenge for the scoring title:

Patrice Bergeron, Boston

5GP 5G 6A 11PTS

Had scored 27 goals and 54 points in 55 games before a fractured right foot took him out of Hart Trophy contention.

Jonathan Toews, Chicago

5GP 5G 4A 9PTS

Captain Serious, who is coming off declining offensive years, is back to his old self with points in all five games.

Alexander Radulov, Dallas

6GP 4G 6A 10PTS

Playing on a stacked line with Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn, Radulov might have no trouble topping last year’s 72-point total.

Evgeni Malkin, Pittsburgh

5GP 1G 8A 9PTS

Finished fourth in scoring last season with 98 points. As long as he can stay healthy — and stays on a line with Phil Kessel — expect even more this year.

Phil Kessel, Pittsburgh

5GP 4G 4A 8PTS

Had a career-best 92 points last season. And the most remarkable thing about it was Kessel was not even playing with Malkin or Crosby.

POWER RANKINGS

1. Toronto Maple Leafs

Who needs Nylander when Kapanen has scored four goals and eight points.

2. New Jersey Devils

Keith Kinkaid’s perfect record could make Cory Schneider expendable.

3. Nashville Predators

Have lost once in six games.

4. Anaheim Ducks

Losing Ryan Getzlaf could put pressure on re-signing Nick Ritchie.

5. Boston Bruins

Pastrnak and Bergeron have combined for 12 goals in five games.

6. Carolina Hurricanes

Have come down to earth with losses to Winnipeg and Tampa Bay.

7. Chicago Blackhawks

All five games this season have gone into overtime.

8. Vancouver Canucks

Boeser only has two goals, but both have been game winners.

9. Montreal Canadiens

Tatar’s seven points are six more than Pacioretty has for Vegas.

10. Winnipeg Jets

They could use some goals from Nikolaj Ehlers right about now.

11. Tampa Bay Lightning

Stamkos still without a goal — and just one assist — after four games.

12. Pittsburgh Penguins

Murray is back from a concussion, but DeSmith is not giving up the net.

13. Ottawa Senators

Who needs Erik Karlsson when you have Thomas Chabot.

14. Calgary Flames

Mike Smith and his .881 save percentage need to be better.

15. Washington Capitals

Kuznetsov has entered superstar status with nine points in five games.

16. Dallas Stars

The Star Line of Benn, Seguin and Radulov have 11 goals and 28 points.

17. Los Angeles Kings

Kings are 0-for-21 on the power play.

18. Colorado Avalanche

MacKinnon already has seven goals in six games.

19. Vegas Golden Knights

After a shaky start, Vegas is back.

20. Columbus Blue Jackets

Bobrovsky wants $11-million a year? Not with that .860 save percentage.

21. Philadelphia Flyers

Calvin Pickard has already stolen the net away from Brian Elliott.

22. Buffalo Sabres

All three of Sheary’s goals have come on the power play.

23. San Jose Sharks

Erik Karlsson is minus-5 with no goals and three assists after six games.

24. Minnesota Wild

Eric Staal (two goals and four points) already proving last year was no fluke.

25. New York Islanders

No Tavares? No problem, as Barzal scores five points in first four games.

26. Edmonton Oilers

The Connor McDavids are as good as their captain.

27. New York Rangers

Lundqvist has been magnificent. Too bad he’s not getting any help.

28. St. Louis Blues

One win in five games is not the start anyone wanted.

29. Florida Panthers

Still looking for win No. 1.

30. Arizona Coyotes

Familiar start to the season for the Coyotes.

31. Detroit Red Wings

A six-game losing streak to start the season.

Angry Andrea “accosted” me: PC MPP Skelly

Toronto Sun - 2 hours 24 min ago

A PC MPP says she was pushed and screamed at by NDP Leader Andrea Horwath Tuesday in the Ontario Legislature.

The NDP downplayed the interaction, claiming the PCs themselves had acted badly by deliberately blocking an Ontario Parliament Network camera that was broadcasting Horwath’s speech.

The unusual incident came to light Wednesday when PC MPP Donna Skelly stood up in the Ontario Legislature to ask Speaker Ted Arnott to find a prima facie case for breach of privilege.

“Regarding the incident in question, at the conclusion of debate (Tuesday,) during the division bells yesterday, the member from Hamilton Centre crossed the chamber and initiated unwanted and intentional physical contact with me,” Skelly said.

Horwath later told reporters that the allegation against her is untrue.

“This is not what happened,” Horwath said.

“I wanted to talk to her about something, walked over, tapped her on the shoulder and she went ballistic. You can ask her why she decided to make this into a hyper-partisan angry affair. It was simply me going over to talk to her.”

( function() { pnLoadVideo( "videos", "0jj703DYxhM", "pn_video_438631", "", "", {"is_mobile":""} ); } )();

NDP House Leader Gilles Bisson said Skelly’s point of order has no merit.

“The antics displayed by the government members yesterday in trying to block the cameras in the chamber from televising the speech from my leader on a very important health care issue facing Bramptonians were absolutely inappropriate, disrespectful and beneath the dignity of this House,” Bisson said.

Skelly said she was sitting in Finance Minister Vic Fedeli’s chair having a discussion with a PC cabinet minister when a furious Horwath walked across the floor, pushed her shoulder to get her attention and began screaming “You disgust me.

“I stood up and said, ‘Don’t touch me, get your hands off me,’” Skelly said.

MPP Donna Skelly

“We had an exchange and then the clerk stepped in and told her to get back in her seat.”

Horwath’s face was red and she was clearly upset, but while she was aggressive in tone she did not hurt her, Skully said.

There were many witnesses to the incident, and Horwath hasn’t denied touching her, Skelly said.

“My biggest issue in raising this is had a man done that this would have been a big deal,” she said.

“I’m not intimidated by Andrea Horwath but that conduct is so unbecoming of anyone, let alone the leader of a party, the Leader of the Opposition… She should apologize and she should control her temper.”

Skully questioned the workplace culture of the Ontario NDP, noting two other NDP MPPs are the subject of unresolved union grievances and human rights complaints by their staff.

“No one should feel that they can be attacked where they work, in a workplace, especially in the legislature and that’s why I raised it,” she said. “She accosted me, and no one should put their hands on anyone else in the legislature.”
