The Canadian Football League quickly threw up a stop sign for any potential overtures to former Ravens star running back Ray Rice. Rice won't be playing north of the border. CFL commissioner Mark Cohon issued a statement saying the league will honor the NFL's indefinite suspension of Rice, whose $35 million contract was terminated Monday by the Ravens after an ugly video surfaced of him punching Janay Palmer in a casino elevator. CFL teams were informed that Rice can't be signed to a contract or added to a negotiation list.

U nited States college lacrosse teams don't have to travel far anymore to find Canadian lacrosse players because the Canadians are finding them. Take Johns Hopkins freshman midfielder Zach Palmer, for example. Blue Jays coach Dave Pietramala discovered Palmer on a three-minute highlight film Palmer sent Pietramala a little more than a year ago. On Tuesday night, Palmer, from Oshawa, Ontario, scored three goals and had two assists as No. 7 Hopkins defeated No. 19 UMBC, 16-10.

O , Canada, it wasn't supposed to go down like this, was it? All that "Own the Podium" talk at the Vancouver Winter Olympics - how's that worked out so far? Not so good, eh? The men's hockey team's 7-3 rout of Russia in the quarterfinals Wednesday night notwithstanding, I see that according to the latest medal standings, Canada is in fourth place with 15 medals. "Blown the Podium," one Vancouver columnist called the disappointing haul. "Own the Odium," another columnist wrote.

The U.S. team pretty quickly threw out any concerns about a letdown game in the semifinals of the Federation of International Lacrosse World Championships on Thursday night in Commerce City, Colo. Team USA, coming off a dominant 18-5 win over the Iroquois Nation on Tuesday night, easily could have looked past an Australia team it beat, 16-7, in pool play. Instead, the United States jumped out to a 7-0, first-quarter lead on the Aussies and never slowed, winning, 22-3, at Dick's Sporting Goods Park to advance to Saturday night's gold-medal game against Canada for the fifth straight time.

SALT LAKE CITY - Near the conclusion of this dreary game, a group of young men wearing Canadian hockey jerseys rose to their feet from their seats near the Belarus net and added a little noise to the arena by singing their country's national anthem. They were celebrating Canada's 7-1 victory over Belarus in a men's hockey semifinal, and also a berth in the gold-medal game tomorrow against the United States. Although yesterday's game was the most one-sided and least entertaining of the medal round, Canadians had much to sing and cheer about at the E Center rink.

QUEBECERS ARE the Canadians with no identity crisis. They know who they are and they know their roots. They are proud to be the only French-speaking majority in North America.And they know what they are not. They are not Americans. They don't have to keep convincing themselves of that. It makes them relatively pro-American.When Ontarians object to Americans taking over their job opportunities or swamping their culture, Quebecers worry only about English-speaking Canadians doing that.Canada, the world's second-largest country, is geographically unnatural, held together throughout its history by federal policy.

For years Americans have assumed that our hard-charging capitalism is better than the soft-hearted version found in Canada and Europe. American capitalism might be a bit crueler, but it generates faster growth and higher living standards overall. Canada and Europe's "welfare-state socialism" is doomed. It was a questionable assumption to begin with, relying to some extent on our collective amnesia about the first three decades after World War II, when tax rates on top incomes in the U.S. never fell below 70 percent, a larger portion of our economy was invested in education than ever before or since, over a third of our private-sector workers were unionized, we came up with Medicare for the elderly and Medicaid for the poor, and built the biggest infrastructure project in history, known as the interstate highway system.

With the revised route for the Keystone XL pipeline having last week won approval from Nebraska's Republican governor, the geology of North America's most controversial energy project is clear: It has landed President Barack Obama between a rock and a hard place. Having campaigned for an "all of the above" energy policy but also having announced that addressing climate change will be a top priority during his second term, President Obama must choose between enabling TransCanada's petroleum exports and preventing what climatologists fear will quickly provide a huge and disastrous new boost in greenhouse gases.

There is no shortage of pianists with pristine techniques today. There is even a decent supply of polished pianists who possess the rarer attribute of musicality. But Marc-Andre Hamelin still stands out from the pack. Critics have been known to sound more like fan club presidents when describing Hamelin performances, tossing off adjectives like "legendary," "fearless" and "electrifying," or even giving him the title "piano superhero. " Baltimore will get a chance to sample Hamelin's artistry when he makes his Shriver Hall Concert Series debut on Sunday.

Canada is threatened with dissolution if voters in that country do not approve on Oct. 26 -- in each of 10 provinces -- a constitutional revision agreed to by the federal and provincial prime ministers and native leaders in August. Were the Canadian rule of unanimity applied here, the United States could not have ratified or amended the Constitution and would not now exist.Canada is reeling from rejection in 1990 of the Meech Lake accord for constitutional revision after it was ratified by eight of 10 provinces representing more than eight-tenths of the voters.

TORONTO -- What explains the profound differences between cities in the United States and Canada, nations with such intimately related history and cultures?Kenneth Greenberg, a Toronto urban planner also active in St. Paul, Detroit and other American cities, has a catchy explanation.When Canadian towns were formed, he told the recent Conference on the New Urbanism meeting here, the Mounties went in first, staked out streets, checked out the water supply, and when they were sure everything was ''safe,'' let the settlers in.But America's was the way of Wild West movies: Settlers moved in, everyone scrambled for property, and when things started going awry, someone would suggest, ''Maybe we need a sheriff around here.

James Hinchcliffe has slipped comfortably into Danica Patrick's former race car, if not specifically into her driving shoes. IndyCar's 2011 rookie of the year has taken the Michael Andretti Autosports car driven by Patrick to a 10th-place finish in the points last year, and become a regular top five finisher and legitimate contender for the series title. In the process, he has displayed a sense of humor, going so far as to don a woman's black wig at introductions for the opening race of the season.
