One of Vancouver's most prominent independent movie houses is rebranding itself as a sports bar in an attempted workaround of the province's COVID-19 health orders.Rio Theatre owner Corinne Lea says as of Saturday the cinema will pivot to operating as a bar that projects sporting events on the big screen. It's part of a move that would comply with British Columbia's guidelines that say restaurants and bars are fine to stay open, but movie theatres aren't."We're trying to point out how these rules don't make any sense," Lea said on Wednesday."But at the same time, there's nothing we can do... except try to figure out how we can keep the doors open."The province's cinemas were forced to close in November and won't be allowed to reopen until at least early next month.Lea said she hasn't heard from health authorities, but her goal is to "work within the rules" and get her business back on its feet in the sporting world."We're all having to pivot and become jocks," she said."All my film geek programmers were trying to Google the NHL and understand what sports are playing when."Vancouver Coastal Health declined to comment and representatives for the province did not immediately respond to questions.Operators of the Rio have been frequent critics of provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry's guidelines for local businesses, which Lea said have been "increasingly frustrating" because of their inconsistencies. For instance, gyms and bowling alleys are allowed to stay open with certain restrictions, while cinemas weren't granted the same exceptions.Over the Christmas holiday, the Rio used its theatre marquee to question the province's approach to safety, pointing out that while theatres were closed, malls were still allowed to operate.The latest marquee update on Tuesday took a more succinct approach: "Screw the arts. We're a sports bar now."The Rio holds a "liquor primary" licence, Lea said, which allows the theatre to operate as a bar, and a limited food licence to serve popcorn, grilled cheese and other snacks.The Rio isn't the first Vancouver movie house to experiment with a different business model. Last month, the city's Hollywood Theatre reopened as a bar, serving cocktails and snacks, but not showing films.Other indie theatres across the country have taken less bold routes to survival after being forced to close under their local health guidelines.Some continued to operate concession stands or sell alcohol, while the owners of Ottawa's ByTowne Cinema chose to permanently close in December rather than face an uncertain future.This report by The Canadian Press was first published Jan. 20, 2021.

Joe Biden has signed his first slate of executive actions as president, erasing core aspects of Donald Trump’s legacy on the coronavirus pandemic, immigration, climate change, and more with the simple stroke of a pen. Following an afternoon of ceremonies that included a virtual parade through Washington, DC, and the laying of a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia, the new administration immediately got to work around 5:15pm on the East Coast, rolling out 15 executive orders and two other action items. Mr Biden kicked off his presidency by issuing his much-anticipated 100-day mask challenge to the country, pairing it with an executive order to mandate mask-wearing in all federal buildings and during interstate travel.

Ontario's police watchdog cleared an officer of wrongdoing in the shooting death of a man west of Toronto on Wednesday, saying there were no reasonable grounds to lay charges in the incident that took place last year. The Special Investigations Unit noted, however, that there were legitimate questions about the Peel Regional Police officer's conduct on the evening that Jamal Francique was shot in the head in Mississauga, Ont. Joseph Martino, the director of the Special Investigations Unit, said in a report that the officer told investigators he feared for his life when Francique drove at him during a botched arrest. "Confronted by a vehicle that the subject officer had reason to believe was intentionally being driven in his direction, the officer's decision to disable its operating mind by shooting in the direction of the driver was not devoid of logic," Martino wrote. There were aspects of the officer's conduct, however, that raised questions, Martino said. "One may question, for example, the wisdom of the (subject officer) placing himself in the vicinity of a vehicle whose driver was evidently attempting to flee from police," Martino wrote. "There are those who would also take issue with shooting at a moving vehicle when the prospect of stopping the vehicle in its tracks is low and the risk of contributing to a dangerous situation on the roadway is real. On the other hand, one must be mindful of the fluid and dynamic nature of the incident." Francique's father criticized the SIU's decision and the conduct of the police. "The SIU unit and the police have left many fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters, grandparents, cousins, aunts, uncles, and friends not trusting nor believing them." Derek Francique said in a statement. "We do not want to leave our lives in your hands because instead of helping us and giving us a reason to feel safe you leave the families in incomplete shambles." Police were investigating Jamal Francique for allegedly dealing drugs and possessing a firearm, the SIU said. Officers were unable to confirm if Francique had a gun or was dealing drugs, but decided to arrest him for allegedly breaching bail conditions, the SIU said. On Jan. 7, 2020, several plainclothes officers and their unmarked cars gathered near Francique's home in Mississauga, Ont., where they waited for him to get into his car. Around 5:45 p.m., the SIU said, Francique got into an Acura TSX and began to drive, but one officer was late blocking him in the driveway. A second unmarked police car came behind Francique and tried to hem him in, the SIU said, while other officers got out of the cars and rushed to the area, guns pointed at the young man. Francique accelerated toward a grassy area, the SIU said, and struck one car while one officer jumped out of the way. At that point another officer on foot fired his gun four times as Francique drove towards him, the SIU said. The Acura came to a halt 30 metres away after it hit a home. The SIU said that after Francique had been shot officers did not approach the car for fears of a gun — which was later found in his satchel — and waited until tactical officers arrived more than two hours later at 8:05 p.m. The tactical team then approached with a shield and smashed the rear windows. "Mr. Francique was seated in the driver’s seat in obvious and acute medical distress," the SIU wrote. "He had suffered a gunshot wound to the left side of the head." Francique was taken to St. Michael's Hospital in Toronto and died three days later. Knia Singh, a lawyer representing Francique's family, suggested the SIU's report had several deficiencies. He said it did not explain why police waited until Francique was in his car to arrest him when their reports said officers observed the man walking from his apartment through the parking lot. "Why would they choose night time and a manner and a plan that surrounds the person in plainclothes, blocks them in, and creates a high-risk takedown," said Singh. "It defies logic." Singh also said the case of Francique, who was Black, demonstrated that the SIU had failed to serve the province's diverse communities. "The public perception from affected communities, lawyers, and human rights organizations, is that the SIU is heavily biased in favour of police," he said. - with files from John Chidley-Hill.

Paul Pogba is producing some of the best football of his turbulent Manchester United career — and it is keeping the team at the top of the Premier League. Just minutes after he was seen racing back 40 metres to win the ball back and thwart a dangerous-looking counterattack, Pogba collected the ball just outside the corner of the penalty area with three Fulham players near him. Pogba twisted and turned, manoeuvring himself into a pocket of space before unleashing a powerful left-foot shot that curled into the far corner and sealed United’s comeback in a 2-1 win at Craven Cottage on Wednesday. A week ago, a long-range volley by Pogba earned United a 1-0 win at Burnley that moved the team into first place at the midway point of the season for the first time in eight years. His 65th-minute winner at Fulham also put United on the summit, reclaiming top spot a day after Leicester went there by beating Chelsea 2-0 and hours after Manchester City beat Aston Villa 2-0 to underline its title credentials. With Pogba playing so well — and showing an appetite for the battle that many United fans have longed to see since his return to the club for a second spell in 2016 — Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team is a serious title contender itself. Solskjaer is managing to coax a string of impressive displays out of the club's record signing, just a month after the France midfielder's future looked uncertain after his agent, Mino Raiola, told an Italian newspaper that it was “over” for Pogba at United. United is two points clear of second-place City, which is ahead of Leicester only on goal difference. ___ More AP soccer: https://apnews.com/Soccer and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Steve Douglas, The Associated Press
