The Love Guru
The Love Guru
A hilarious comedy starring Mike Myers as guru Pitka in his first original character since the blockbuster hit Austin Powers. Myers plays an American raised in India by gurus (Tugginmypudha & Satchabigknoba) and returns to the U.S. in order to break into the self-help business. His unorthodox methods are put to the test when he must settle the romantic troubles and subsequent professional skid of a star hockey player (Romany Malco), whose wife left him for a rival athlete Jacques Grande (Justin Timberlake). Mini Me is back from Austin Powers and plays the hockey coach for more classic comedic moments that will have audiences laughing from opening to closing credits.

Mike Myers, creator of Wayne's World and Austin Powers, adds another character to his arsenal of comic personae. With his thick beard, curly mustachios, and easy-to-remember aphorisms, Guru Pitka (Myers) has built a reputation as love advisor par excellence--but he's still just America's #2 guru, after Deepak Chopra. Finally an opportunity comes his way: If he can heal the rift between a star hockey player (Romany Marco, Weeds) and his wife (Meagan Good, Stomp the Yard), he can appear on Oprah. But when he meets the hockey team's comely owner (Jessica Alba), Pitka realizes he must solve his own love problems as well. Myers can't resist a good bodily functions joke--unfortunately, he can't resist a bad one either, so The Love Guru is crammed top to bottom with jokes about urine, feces, sex, genitalia--lots and lots about male genitalia--along with many, many gags about Canada, drugs, elephants, inspirational catchphrases, and little people (Vern "Mini-Me" Troyer takes the brunt of these). But the Austin Powers movies were pretty much the same sort of lowbrow comedy grab-bag; though the ratio of good to bad might be weaker here, a good handful of bits offer solid laughs, including some mock-Bollywood musical numbers. Also featuring pop star Justin Timberlake (as a preposterously well-endowed French-Canadian), Ben Kingsley (as Pitka's cross-eyed mentor), Stephen Colbert (as a drug-addled sports announcer), as well as numerous celebrity cameos. --Bret Fetzer

Parc Downsview Park ::: No Home for the Arrow!
Parc Downsview Park ::: No Home for the Arrow!
YOU'VE GOT TO WONDER where these condescending Crown organizations find those bureaucratic disconnects who are so far removed from any passionate knowledge of the history of Canada that they would attempt to replace 65 Carl Hall Road with hockey arenas. There are a hundred other sites WITHIN Parc Downsview Park's 572 acres that could house a 4-plex hockey arena, but some yahoo wants to bulldoze the Canadian Air and Space Museum and put it there. In the old days, at the turn of the last century we use to horse-whip individuals who dared to sally forth with such tomfoolery. Now, we actually hear them out. I'm all for Canada maintaining hockey dominance on the international scene…but not at the expense of our great Canadian aviation history. Aviation is another area where Canada ONCE dominated, however briefly, and we need to acknowledge that. Young Canadians need to see and reflect on our past. And where better than at the actual historic site of the de Havilland Aircraft Company of Canada, right where their first plant was located at 65 Carl Hall Road. De Havilland first produced British designed aircraft (de Havilland Moths) under licence in order to train up Canadian airmen across the country in the 30s. But, later in the 40s, over 1100 units of the legendary de Havilland Mosquito were produced at 65 Carl Hall Road for action in WW II. In the Cold War, over 200 of these Canadian-made Downsview Mosquitos saw fighting action again, and were involved in Communist suppression in China, by a then-decree of the Canadian government. Bigger projects were in store for Downsview's de Havilland Aircraft Company of Canada, though. The De Havilland Aircraft Company of Canada went on to design and manufacture 8 wholly Canadian aircraft. You might have heard of some of them. 1) DHC-1 Chipmunk 2) DHC-2 Beaver 3) DHC-3 Otter 4) DHC-4 Caribou 5) DHC-5 Buffalo 6) DHC-6 Twin Otter 7) DHC-7 Dash 7 8) DHC-8 Dash 8 The first four designs were exclusive to 65 Carl Hall Road and the nearby hangers. The Caribou, Buffalo, Twin Otter, Dash 7, and Dash 8 were manufactured on the south side of Downsview airfield at the Garratt Blvd facility. The Dash 8 continues on as the Bombardier Q400 which is still in commercial production today. The Cold War fostered the development of a Canadian Guided Missile Division, located, guess where? I'll give you a hint, its on Carl Hall Road. This era drew a whole new breed of scientists with a whole new agenda. This time in space. The Canadian-built Alouette I satellite was both designed and assembled at 65 Carl Hall Road. The Alouette I became the first satellite in the world—that would be put into space by a country, other than the USA, or the USSR. SPAR began right here as well. SPAR, you remember, went on to produce the Canada Arm for NASA's space shuttles. In spite of all this rich history, Parc Downsview Park has the bulldozers on stand-by to level 65 Carl Hall Road. Six months and counting down… Parc Downsview Park advertises itself as a place for all Peoples. It's just not Canadian friendly. Isn't it funny that no matter what noble thing people try to do, I'm thinking of the thousands of Canadian Air and Space Museum volunteers that have put hundreds of thousands of hours into restoring historical Canadian aircraft (Tracker, Lancaster, CF-5 etc) or restoring historical Canadian jet engines (Jetliner Derwent, the Orenda 5 etc) building another Arrow(see above photo), or hosting great aviation history commemorative events that even Jim Floyd attended…there's always some Judas waiting in the wings to push his own petty agenda, and ruin everything. There is one more thing Canadians need to know. OF ALL THE GTA AIRFIELDS that were a part of Canada's EARLY robust aviation history: ? Armour Heights Field 1917-1919 ? Barker Field 1927-1953 ? Leaside Aerodrome 1927-1931 ? Long Branch Aerodrome 1915-1919 ? Toronto Aerodrome 1928-1939 Only Downsview Airfield 1929–present STILL remains. That's right, just Downsview! Downsview remains connected to its illustrious aviation past with one operational airfield still owned and managed by Bombardier Aerospace (the successors to de Havilland Canada) and ALSO through the existence of the Canadian Air and Space Museum at 65 Carl Hall Road who should also be the final tenants at number 65. The Canadian Air and Space Museum (CASM) resides in the hanger that once was the original manufacturing building of de Havilland Canada. Well, that ongoing historical residence is quite precarious now. The Canadian Air and Space Museum last week was tendered its eviction notice September 20, 2011 from the Parc Downsview Park (a Crown corporation) because they were $100,000 in rent arrears. Why the Canadian Air and Space Museum was paying ANY RENT, and why they don't also have the former associated de Havilland hanger unit in their possession…just boggles my Canadian mind. So I guess the

Hockey ? Le jeu, la gloire Le jeudi 15 septembre a 19 h 30 Musee canadien des civilisations 1. Le premier jeu de hockey sur table au Canada fut fabrique en 1932 par Donald H. Munro Sr. de Toronto pour ses enfants. Il en construisit d?autres pour le grand magasin Eaton avant de mettre sur pied une compagnie manufacturiere qui prospera pendant 20 ans. Pour jouer, les adversaires devaient propulser une boule ronde en metal sur la surface de « glace » inclinee en bois en tirant sur un levier qui activait tous les flippers en meme temps. Le jeu Munro representa la norme au Canada jusqu?au milieu des annees 1950. 2. Jeu de hockey sur table Eagle de format reduit : chaque joueur ne devait manipuler qu?un seul avant, un defenseur et un gardien. 3. En 1954, la compagnie Eagle Toys de Montreal revolutionna le monde du hockey sur table. Son jeu presentait une surface de jeu plate ressemblant a la glace et des joueurs faconnes comme de veritables joueurs de hockey, imprimes en couleurs sur des formes decoupees dans des feuilles d?etain. Les joueurs etaient controles individuellement et pouvaient pivoter sur 360 degres. / Hockey: The Game, The Glory Thursday, September 15 | 7:30 p.m. Canadian Museum of Civilization 1. The first table hockey game in Canada was made in1932 by Donald H. Munro Sr. of Toronto for his children. He built more for Eaton?s department store before forming a manufacturing company that thrived for 20 years. To play, each competitor propelled the round metal ball over a curved wooden “ice” surface by pulling a lever that activated all the “flippers” at once. The Munro game was the standard in Canada until the mid 1950s. 2. Smaller sized Eagle table hockey game: each player has only one forward, one defenceman, and one goalie to manipulate. 3. In 1954, Montreal?s Eagle Toy Company revolutionized table hockey. Their game featured a flat playing surface that resembled ice, and players shaped like real hockey players, printed in color on flat tin cutouts. The players were individually controlled, and could pivot 360 degrees. © SMCC / CMCC Steven Darby
